I love Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (obviously!) and I love to read or hear what they have to say about their movies, their activism, their family, and each other. However, I think one of my favorite things is to hear what others in the business say about them. I find it very telling that despite what the non-fans and tabloids want to say, a great deal of people in the world of Hollywood have very positive things to say about them as actors and as people.
Quentin Tarantino, after working with Brad in Inglourious Basterds, declared that Brad Pitt isn’t a pretty boy anymore, having moved far beyond the face (and butt) we all got to know in Thelma and Louise.
“What’s really cool about Brad right now is that the pretty boy is gone. He’s a man now. He can bear the weight. Brad is at the zenith of his iconicness.”
Also, although it doesn’t say so specifically, it sounds like there just might be a prequel or sequel to Inglourious Basterds in the future because Quentin said that he just kept writing and writing the story, barely able to stop coming up with new ideas for his characters.
“I couldn’t turn my brain off. I couldn’t stop coming up with new avenues, new ideas. Suddenly it was like, what the f**k? Am I too big for movies now? Are movies too small for me? I mean, what’s that about?”
That’s good news for us because the more material he still has lying around, the higher the odds that we’ll get another movie, and we already know that Brad has implied he’d work with Quentin again if the chance came up!
I don’t know about you, but even though I still haven’t seen the first movie, I already know I’d watch the second!
