Brad Pitt speaks candidly on his career’s future, stating that he is picky but is open to starring in a new film ‘when the timing is perfect.’
Brad Pitt has opened up about his professional and personal challenges. The Bullet Train star opened up about his career in the August issue of GQ, stating that he is more choosy about the projects he takes on these days. “I consider myself to be on my last leg, this last semester or trimester,” he told the publication. “What will this section be about?” And how do I want to design it?”
Brad Pitt is picky about his acting assignments but is open to taking on new projects “when the timing is right, especially when there’s a personal connection.” Brad Pitt’s next film will be Bullet Train, an action-comedy thriller in which he portrays an assassin who has recently recovered from burnout and returns to his high-stakes job with a rather misplaced sense of confidence in his fitness for duty.
While talking about his Bullet Train role, Brad Pitt shared, “You know, you do a month of therapy, you have one epiphany, and you think you’ve got it all figured out, and you’re never going to be forlorn ever again. That was that. ‘I got this, I’m good to go!’” Pitt’s not just selective with his acting roles, but with his producing projects too. With his production company, Plan B Entertainment, he admitted that the experience is “gratifying in new and different ways.”
The long-awaited film adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ Blonde, a fictitious biography of Marilyn Monroe’s inner life, directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Ana de Armas, will also be released by Plan B. According to the GQ interview, the actor went to Alcoholics Anonymous for over a year after his divorce from Angelina Jolie in 2016. “I had a really cool men’s group here that was private and selective, so it was safe,” he explained to GQ.
“Because I’d seen things of other people, like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.” Brad Pitt also talked about his lifelong feelings of loneliness. “I always felt very alone in my life,” he explained to the magazine, adding, “alone growing up as a kid, alone even out here, and it’s really not till recently that I have had a greater embrace of my friends and family.”
