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.
