Brad Pitt Regrets One Role in His Life: “I Couldn’t Get Out of the Center of the Frame. It Drove Me Crazy.”

Brad Pitt revealed which films he hated working on, even though they were highly successful at the box office.

Despite naming three films, Pitt singled out the one he hated the most. The actor couldn’t always choose the roles he played, but thanks to his talent and youthful appearance, he landed significant roles that brought him worldwide success and recognition.

Pitt disclosed that he often found himself in roles that did not interest him. One such film was the 1994 movie “Interview with the Vampire,” which grossed over $225 million worldwide.

“I hated working on this movie. I loved watching it, but I completely hated working on it,” Pitt mentioned, adding that the fact they shot most of the film in the dark particularly bothered him.

Pitt also tried to get out of his contract for the film “The Devil’s Own,” in which he starred alongside Harrison Ford. He described the filming process as “the most irresponsible bit of filmmaking” he had ever seen. Pitt was burdened by behind-the-scenes issues and claimed that the only reason he didn’t quit was to avoid being sued.

In the end, Brad Pitt revealed the film he considers the worst project of his career. It was the movie “Troy,” an adaptation of Homer’s epic directed by Wolfgang Petersen, in which Pitt played Achilles, the legendary ancient hero. At the time, Pitt couldn’t voice his opinion due to contractual obligations, but he later admitted that he regrets making the film because the studio forced him into it after he backed out of another project.

“It wasn’t painful, but I realized that the way the film was told was not how I wanted it to be. I made my own mistakes in it. What am I trying to say about ‘Troy’? I couldn’t get out of the center of the frame. It drove me crazy,” Pitt stated.

In an interview with the New York Times, Pitt explained why he didn’t enjoy working on the film.

“I became spoiled working with David Fincher. This is not a slight against Wolfgang Petersen. ‘Das Boot’ is one of the best films of all time. But somewhere along the way, ‘Troy’ became a commercial thing. Every shot was like, ‘Here’s the hero!’ There was no mystery,” Pitt added.

After working on “Troy,” the actor promised himself that he would not compromise his artistic vision in future projects.
