Can you see Brad Pitt in the role of a modern Santa Claus, looking on his list who was good and who was not (at least with him)? We doubt even the star of Fight Club may ship coal to the least deserving of his affection but, now we know, not having his sympathy could close several doors in Hollywood. Aaron Taylor-Johnson recently starred with Pitt in the action-packed action Bullet Train and, on this occasion, he discovered the existence of two lists: one is made up of the colleagues with whom the actor loves to work while the other hosts all those with whom the star has not been too well in the past.

Only if you want to bring joy to the world

How do you get into Brad Pitt’s good graces? Taylor-Johnson revealed that the colleague has an ambitious but very clear goal when he works, “he just wants to bring light and joy into the world”, and is therefore willing to work only with those who can be on his own length. wave. According to the actor of Nocturnal animals Pitt is an affable person who likes not to take himself too seriously, even at work, and therefore would be interested in working only “with people who are also there to have fun”. Aaron Taylor-Johnson doesn’t know which Pitt list he is on but, on his part, he’s not too surprised that certain things exist. The interpreter of a young John Lennon in Nowhere Boy he said it almost as if it were a practice: “You work with many actors and after a while you start taking notes: ‘I will never work with this person again'”.

Good or bad?

Taylor-Johnson was able to experience the feeling between Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt right in Bullet Train. The Oscar-winning actress is certainly among those who can boast of being on Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband’s friend list. On the other hand, it was in the past Pitt himself who praised his partner in The Lost City, spending honey words for her: “Sandra is a very dear friend, I know that at any time, in any situation, I can call her and ask her for any favor and she will say yes”. Working on the recent Bullet Train Pitt must have liked it a lot, however, who found another actress on the set with whom he got on very well: Joey King. The 23-year-old model and actress reciprocated her esteem by declaring: “I learned a lot from Brad, some incredible personal life lessons.” After such a sentence, the place on the white list is assured.

Tom Cruise? No thank you

At this point it is natural to wonder who does not really like Brad Pitt. Taylor-Johnson, who also told us a couple of the names of the “good guys”, didn’t feel like giving away who the actor would like to avoid. The newspapers, however, have imagined for themselves which are the stars that least inspire the sympathy of the star. On the blacklist there should be (in addition to the ex Angelina Jolie) also other pieces from the nineties of Hollywood, starting with Tom Cruise. Pitt had already talked about him some time ago, recalling the tensions experienced on the set of Interview with the vampire in 1994: “Cruise is the North Pole and I am the South Pole. I always thought there was some kind of underlying competition between the two of us that kept us from talking. It was nothing unpleasant but it bothered me a bit ”. How disturbed Pitt was by the presence of Harrison Ford in the cast of The shadow of the devil it is not known, at least officially. What is certain is that the electricity between the two was such as to force the interpreter of The curious case of Benjamin Button to publicly deny the rumors of a disagreement with the star of Indiana Jones. The two, however, no longer worked together and The shadow of the devil, perhaps also due to the tense climate between the stars during the making, in the end it turned out to be a film below expectations. Since that 1997 film, much has changed in the career of the now 50-year-old Brad Pitt. As he approaches nearly a hundred films in his filmography, the actor no longer feels like spending his precious time sharing the scene with people who don’t make him happy. Among the most underestimated privileges of the stars there is also the possibility of choosing colleagues to work with.
