Brad Pitt, an American actor, is currently one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, thanks to his charismatic personality, stellar acting abilities, and killer looks.
That said, after the success of his breakthrough film Thelma & Louise, the ‘Golden Boy of Hollywood’ didn’t want to be remembered solely for his beauty.
Experts addressed his fear of being typecast during an E! True Hollywood Story about how the star rose to fame and became the talk of the town after the film’s publication.
“Suddenly he became someone who was always on the cover of magazines, and everyone wanted to know about his social life and who he was dating,” Cooper Lawrence, a renowned psychologist and author, explained.
“He had just finished A River Runs Through It and he felt between that and Thelma & Louise, he was worried about being typecast as a pretty boy,” director Dominic Sena explained.
Sena continued, “He just said he was looking for something completely different, and I thought, ‘Boy, have I got a job for you.'”
Sena also disclosed how he approached Pitt about playing fictional murderer Early Grayce in his upcoming thriller Kalifornia: The Golden State. “When I met with Brad, I was blown away by his interpretation of the character. I had a feeling he was the one.”
Juliette Lewis, the dreamboat’s then-girlfriend, was also cast as his love interest: “Considering they were in the middle of a relationship, I figured it could either be fantastic or awful.”
“But I have to tell you, it was a lot of fun.” All of this interactivity between them felt genuine. Sena continued, “They were just into each other and it was pretty all encompassing.”
He explained, “Brad Pitt arrived in the morning, went into the trailer, and came out as Early Grayce, and that was that.”
