Way before Robert Pattinson, Brad Pitt was the hottest blood-sucker on the planet thanks to his role in “Interview with the Vampire.”
But the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” stud told press the role wasn’t really up his alley- “[I remember thinking] I am miserable. Six months in the f**king dark… contact lenses, makeup, I’m playing the b**ch role.”
As for the “Twilight Saga” franchise, Pitt commented, “I don’t know enough about it, really. Listen, because of my kids, I see only movies for 10 and under. I’ve seen them all, and I’ve seen them 10 times over.”
And when he was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive twice (1995 & 2000), Brad didn’t let it go to his head. “Well, they’re not saying you’re the Biggest A–hole, you know? When you get older, you realize it’s just for fun. Clooney and I were able to have fun with it later.”
In promotional mode as he readies for the release of his new movie “Moneyball,” Brad Pitt nabbed the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Set to hit newsstands tomorrow (September 16), the 47-year-old chatted with the magazine about his People’s Sexiest Man Alive status, as well as working with partner Angelina Jolie.
Highlights from Pitt’s interview are as follows:
On his Sexiest Man Alive status: “Well, they’re not saying you’re the Biggest A-hole, you know? When you get older, you realize it’s just for fun. Clooney and I were able to have fun with it later. But in some ways, I’m still a kid from Missouri and Oklahoma and I’m trying to find my way. By the way, we’re only talking about a blip. I didn’t spend much time thinking about it.”
On his joint “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” effort with Angelina Jolie: “A husband and wife who actually want to kill each other-I thought that was a launching pad for something really fun and vibrant. Again, that was something we were developing as we were going along, and Angie’s a great partner in that. We work really well together. We had some good workshops beforehand. Had some good laughs and ideas. That was just a great collaboration that turned into a greater collaboration.”
On the possibility of working alongside his lady in the future: “We should be doing them together-that’s what we should be doing. We should be doing everything together, and then we could work less. We could have more time off.”
He gave an interview to Parade Magazine recently in which he described his marriage to Jennifer Aniston, but now Brad Pitt says his comments were “misinterpreted.”
Seeking to clarify himself, the “Fight Club” stud told press, “It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly.”
“The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.”
Brad’s previous comments to Parade included, “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage had something to do with it.”
