Quentin Tarantino Heaps Praise on Brad Pitt: ‘He’s One of the Last Stars on the Big Screen’

Quentin Tarantino raves about Brad Pitt

Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, also talks about the talent of the 58-year-old comedian.

The portrait of brad pitt by GQ caused a stir this week. In one, the actor of 58 appears as dead, his face frozen, staring at the public with his piercing eyes, while he floats on water covered with flowers, taking up the famous image of the suicide of Ophelia, told by William Shakespeare in Hamlet. Inside the magazine, the star of fight club talks about his retirement for the first time, talking about “the end” of his career, his “last semester or last quarter” as an actor in Hollywood. He also evokes death, explaining that he suffers if he does not create. So in addition to his work as an actor and producer, he sculpts, makes mosaics, plays the guitar…

Brad Pitt wonders about the last part of his career: “Where do I want to go?”

At the heart of this portrait, personalities close to the star intervene, in particular Quentin Tarantinothanks to whom he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2019 for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywoodin 2019, but also Fleathe bass player of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who has known him for several decades (and who we recently saw in a supporting role in the series Obi-Wan Kenobi). “He’s one of the last stars of the big screen, like Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Steve McQueen… He’s got that old-school star thing. He’s from another line. I don’t know how to accurately describe that to you, because it’s like trying to detail the way the sun shines. I first noticed it when we were shooting Inglourious Basterds. When Brad was in the shot, I didn’t feel like I was watching him through the camera, but like watching a movie. Just the fact that he’s in the frame creates that impression.” For Flea too, seeing him create is exceptional: “When Brad is lost in his creative process, it’s magical. It’s like seeing a light go on in a human being and giving him strength, and at the same time opening him up to others. “
