But it was just there and it bugged me a bit. But I’ll tell you, he catches a lot of shit because he’s on top, but he’s a good actor and he advances in the film. He did it. I mean, you have to respect that.”
Hypothesis additionally swirled that Pitt clashed together with his co-star Harrison Ford through the filming of the 1997 motion thriller “The Devil’s Own,” in keeping with Rolling Stone.
Pitt as soon as described the challenge because the “most irresponsible bit of filmmaking” attributable to manufacturing difficulties, however did later make clear that his frustration wasn’t directed at Ford. The 2, nevertheless, have but to cross paths on a movie set once more.
“He’s absolutely cool,” Pitt stated of Ford, debunking the rumors. “Look, it was tough. It was the hardest film I’ve ever been on.
