Brad Pitt spoke about the improv nature of comedy and remarked on how similar it was when he watched Anthony Hopkins during one of their films together.
The film is a nice escape to the films of Hollywood yesteryear.
The twenty-six year-old Pitt gave an interview dressed like the brand-new decade of the 1990s threw up all over him.

Among Hollywood’s current biggest stars, I’d say that Brad Pitt has the best track record in recent years in choosing the right roles for himself.
The economic instability that hit most of the world in 2008-2009 and still lingers didn’t just hit the lower classes — A-list stars who used to command paychecks hovering upwards of $20 million per film are far less common than they were before the recession. For a major star like Brad Pitt, who earned a reportedly $20 million salary for Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005, hasn’t gotten paychecks close to that in recent years.
Here is a clip from the new Brad Pitt film, Killing Them Softly, that got some pretty good buzz after premiering at Cannes.

While it may be true that most entertainers have a “shelf life” — meaning that after a certain period of time their popularity, skill, or both are bound to wane — Brad Pitt has always seemed to be one of the rare exceptions.
In these videos, the two stars talk about the film while asking reader questions. Most of the questions and answers are ridiculous but you can clearly tell that they both enjoy each others company so from that standpoint, it’s a fun watch them tease each other.
