Interview With The
Now that Brad Pitt has more than achieved superstar status, with films featuring him as the lead grossing over $5 billion at the worldwide box office, it's easy for him to look back and reflect on his career. As it turns out, Pitt has some rather strong, candid feelings about his time working on "Interview with the Vampire."
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2011, Pitt reflected on his time on the set of "Interview with the Vampire," and he didn't have an overall kind opinion of his experience. When EW remarked the actor looked unhappy in the movie, Pitt said, "I am miserable. Six months in the f*****g dark. Contact lenses, make-up."
It got so bad that one day, Pitt felt as if he had enough. The actor recalled, "One day, it broke me ... I called David Geffen, who was a producer ... I said, 'David, I can't do this anymore. I can't do it. How much will it take to get me out?' And he goes, very calmly, '40 million dollars.'" Obviously, Pitt did not drop out, and luckily, he didn’t have to return in a sequel.
