At my first Golden Globes, I met people I was very much enamored by: Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. It was surreal to see them in person.
It’s ironic, really. Guys should be excited that I got Kristen Bell. If Brad Pitt gets Kristen Bell, it’s like, ‘Well, of course he did.’ With me, it should be, ‘Oh good, a normal-looking guy got her. Maybe I’ll get me a Kristen Bell.’ But guys hate my guts for always dating women I have no right to be with.
The fact that I’m shouting that I have Gangnam style makes people crack up. Imagine if Brad Pitt was singing the song – would it be funny? A twist is important when it comes to writing lyrics.
I was up watching Meet Joe Black at four AM. I was hoping Brad Pitt would die, and he was still alive at seven forty in the morning! I actually felt sorry for once, for critics.
In any given project, there are a few moments where there is the usual disappointment, as it were, when you look in the mirror, and you realize you’re not 23 and looking like Brad Pitt.
I’m only two years older than Brad Pitt, but I look a lot older, which used to greatly frustrate me. It doesn’t anymore. I don’t have to fit into that category and get trounced by Tom Cruise and Brad.
When I first came to L.A., I was plotting out my career choices as if I actually had a choice. Unless you’re Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, impossibly good-looking, or look like a freak, you have to be malleable and open to everything that comes your way because that’s what makes it possible to pay your mortgage and eat.
I’m a huge fan of Brad Pitt. He could have done rom-coms his entire career, but he took it in a different direction.
What you look like, whether you’re Brad Pitt or Charles Laughton, is significant for actors.
For awhile, I got stupid about only wanting a leading-man role, but I have no illusions. I know I’m not Brad Pitt.
Stars really are like anyone else. At the end of the day, Brad Pitt poops – as handsome as he may be – and so does Angelina Jolie.
If I could be anyone, it would be Brad Pitt.
I think that Brad Pitt is definitely a hottie. And his acting is so great that it makes him even more sexy.
The real challenge is if you don’t look super sexy, like a Brad Pitt, you’re going to have to try harder. You’re going to have to make up for it in other ways.
Who wants to get really granular with sabermetrics when you’re going to see a two-and-a-half-hour Brad Pitt movie? You don’t go to the cinema for a maths lesson.
The film industry sees the writer as fungible: The thinking goes, As long as we have Brad Pitt and all this money, we have a great film! No, you need a writer with voice and an engaging story, or what you have is a bomb.
