Brad Pitt Says His Inability To Get Out Of Troy Drove Him Crazy

New Delhi:

The 2004 Wolfgang Peterson movie, Troy might have made him the sex-symbol he is today but Brad Pitt in a latest interview said that he was forced into the role of Achilles as he had backed out from another project. Sitting down with The New York times, the 55-year-old actor said that the shooting drove him crazy and that he could not “get out of the middle of the frame” of that movie.

Clarifying however, that his frustration with the movie has nothing to with criticisms for Wolfgang but rather a movie that didn’t go as he had imagined it to be, Pitt said,

“I had to do Troy because — I guess I can say all this now — I pulled out of another movie and then had to do something for the studio,” Pitt said.

 “So I was put in Troy. It wasn’t painful, but I realized that the way that movie was being 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 could not get out of the middle of the frame. It was driving me crazy,” he added.

Recalling his time spent working on David Fincher’s cult classic Se7en, the actor said he did not like that Troy had become a commercial thing. “I’d become spoiled working with David Fincher. It’s no slight on Wolfgang Petersen. Das Boot is one of the all-time great films. But somewhere in it, Troy became a commercial kind of thing. Every shot was like, Here’s the hero! There was no mystery’’.

‘’So about that time I made a decision that I was only going to invest in quality stories, for lack of a better term. It was a distinct shift that led to the next decade of films,” he added.

True to his words, Pitt has invested in some of ‘quality’ movies such as James Gray’s Ad Astra and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood which is expected to get him an Oscar nod.
