Brian Cox Confirms Suspicions About Troy Co-Star Brad Pitt


2004’s epic historical movie “Troy” didn’t exactly convince critics with its star-studded cast and hype, garnering a disappointing 54% on Rotten Tomatoes. Still, all these years later, the film is talked about by its stars, and Brian Cox, who played King Agamemnon, opened up about working with Brad Pitt on the movie.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, he talked about his illustrious career and admitted that his role in "Troy" was one of the only ones he pursued. He also admitted that getting to watch Brad Pitt on set every day was an experience in and of itself and even called him a “beautiful man.”

"I remember at one point being agog at Brad," Cox said, "[...] He was so stunningly beautiful.” Cox was clearly enamored with Pitt and given how many scenes Cox and Pitt shared in the film, he likely had a bigger frame of reference than most of the cast on "Troy."
