Brad Pitt Quotes

I don’t have a chance [on being elected Mayor of New Orleans]. I’m running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.

 

It’s hard to be surprised by a film. It’s hard to be surprised by another actor or by a director when you’ve seen enough and been around. So when I am, or when I forget that I’m watching someone’s movie, or when I don’t know how someone made a certain turn that I didn’t expect… You know, I’m in.

 

My father came from a very poor background, but I was very fortunate in the sense that we were never in need. My dad was determined to make sure that we didn’t want for things. He wanted to give us more opportunity than he had, a better shot at a better life.

 

The choice or decision to take on a film certainly isn’t calculated as far as doing something that will be successful against something that will have a smaller audience. It’s all a gamble to me, I don’t bet on the horses; I just go with the story that speaks to me and that I feel strongly about which is this one [The Assassination of Jesse James].

 

You never know when I might decide to work in a Bollywood film and do one of those dance numbers with the whole crew in the backdrop.

I was very curious about the world even at a young age, and I don’t know at what point I became aware that other cultures believed in different religions, and my question was, ‘Well, why don’t they get to go to heaven then?’ And the answer was always, ‘Well, everyone gets a chance – meaning at the word of God as it was described to me then. And that didn’t sit well with me then. But in times of trouble or discord, it’s a great comfort. And it wasn’t till I left home that I really came to the conclusion that it didn’t make sense to me for many other reasons.

When I first got out to Hollywood, they were pushing me for sitcoms, and I didn’t really have an interest in them. I wanted to do films and slowly worked that way. And then it became, I guess, this curse of the leading man.

 

I grew up in Oklahoma and Missouri, and I just loved film. My folks would take us to the drive-in on summer nights, and we’d sit on the hood of the car. I just had this profound love for storytelling.

I always liked film as a teaching tool – a way of getting exposed to ideas that had never been presented to me. It just wasn’t on the list of career options where I grew up.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Fame

Fame makes you feel permanently like a girl walking past construction workers.
[Robert]Ford had the idea that through fame he would receive some personal validity, but he didn’t. I feel that these are not the main themes, but certainly themes that are at play in this film [ Assassination of Jesse James].

 

I always heard criticism is the tax on fame. They were right. And then some.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Fighting

Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club!

How many stories have you read that aren’t true, stories about me and Angie being married or fighting or splitting up? And when we don’t split up, there’s a whole new round that we’ve made up and we’re back together again!

The things you own end up owning you.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Books

Having children takes the focus off yourself, which I’m really grateful for. I’m so tired of thinking about myself. I’m sick of myself. You feel you want to be there and not miss out on anything. It’s a true joy and a very profound love. You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever taken on.

I had a friend who worked at a hospice, and he said people in their final moments don’t discuss their successes, awards or what books they wrote or what they accomplished. They only talk about their loves and their regrets, and I think that’s very telling.

Fatherhood is the best thing I ever did. It changes your perspective. You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is really the most extraordinary thing I have taken on.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Decisions

I believe in the power of journalism. To make informed decisions, you have to have an understanding of the dynamics of a situation. And journalism does bridge gaps and creates dialogue.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Capitalism

Deregulation created this epidemic of greed which according to the rules of capitalism was OK. Beyond that there was criminal behaviour. There have been no repercussions and it’s hard to make your peace with.

Crime is just unvarnished capitalism, after all.

The things you own end up owning you.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Film

I come from the belief that all good films find their time whether it’s on opening week or sometime later. That’s certainly true with some of my favourite films that might relate to this [The Assassination of Jesse James] film in terms of cadence like Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid, or McCabe & Mrs Miller or Days of Heaven. I found them 10 to 20 years after they were made.

I loved ‘Saturday Night Fever’ when I was a kid. I couldn’t believe people talked that way. It was just a whole new culture I didn’t understand. I snuck into it. It was an R-rated film. So it holds a special place.

I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and colour in the films there.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It’s kind of a more of a comedic-actiony film. And then we just started Ocean’s [12] Monday. Or I did anyways.

I grew up on certain movies, particular movies that said something to me as a kid from Missouri, movies that showed me places I’d yet traveled, or different cultures, or explained something, or said something in a better way than I could ever say. I wanted to find the movies like that.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Architecture

I am very interested in architecture. I’ve been asked if I’d ever direct, but me, I’d rather build. It’s very similar to directing, because you get to walk among this piece of art, to live in it, be surrounded by it, which is just thrilling.

Whilst acting is my career, architecture is my passion. Selecting this development as my first major construction project has been a simple decision. It will underpin not only my values for environmentally friendly architecture, but also embrace my career in entertainment

I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Design

I’m gonna design my own fleet of trailers. No! I’m gonna record an album like Jennifer Lopez. It’ll be an acoustic version of K.C. and the Sunshine Band. Then maybe I’ll design a line of clothes like Puff Daddy, but all in synthetic fur.

So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I’m just going to cop to it and say to people, ‘Okay, where did we meet?’ But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, ‘Thank you for helping me.’ But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, ‘You’re being egotistical. You’re being conceited.’ But it’s a mystery to me, man. I can’t grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested.

I’d like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right.

I’m drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Values

What’s valuable to me has become clearer as I’ve got older. To me, it’s about the value of your time and your day and the value of the people you spend it with.

You know I’ve been in these tabloids for years now. And at some point you just become a Zen master of it all. Most of these stories, you get probably 2 percent real fruit juice and the rest is just garbage with no nutritional value.

I’m not a big proponent of happiness. I think it’s highly overrated. I think misery is underrated. There’s so much value in that. You can’t have one without the other.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Parents

I have love in my life, a soul mate u2014u00a0absolutely. When someone asked me why Angie and I don’t get married, I replied, ‘Maybe we’ll get married when it’s legal for everyone else.’ I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it u2014u00a0hate mail from religious groups.

Brad Pitt Quotes on Giving

I didn’t understand this idea of a God who says, “You have to acknowledge me. You have to say that I’m the best, and then I’ll give you eternal happiness. If you won’t, then you don’t get it!” It seemed to be about ego. I can’t see God operating from ego, so it made no sense to me.

So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I’m just going to cop to it and say to people, ‘Okay, where did we meet?’ But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, ‘Thank you for helping me.’ But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, ‘You’re being egotistical. You’re being conceited.’ But it’s a mystery to me, man. I can’t grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested.

Man, when I’m riding with the helmet on, I’m invisible. And people just deal with me as the guy on the bike… it gives you a chance to read ’em.

One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her.

Brad Pitt Quotes about Age

Kids are dying from diarrhea … that just shouldn’t be in this day and age, and it’s that kind of thing that needs to be changed. Enough is enough

Personally I like ageing. With age comes wisdom and I have said it before and I say it again, I will take wisdom over youth any day.

Once you hit 40, you start re-examining the math of it all. I’ll trade wisdom for youth any day.

Brad Pitt Quotes I think Happiness

I think happiness is overrated. Satisfied, at peace-those would be more realistic goals.

Brad Pitt Inspirational Quotes

You never know when I might decide to work in a Bollywood film and do one of those dance numbers with the whole crew in the backdrop.

When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn’t a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self. I had faith that I’m capable enough to handle any situation. There’s peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and [that] I’m responsible.

I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form that I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within those compounds, and it’s up to me.
