Hollywood legend “Legends of the Fall” director Ed Zwick claims Brad Pitt had “volatile” behavior while filming. A physical altercation between the ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ actor and Zwick apparently occurred on set of the 1994 blockbuster.
While Pitt and the 71-year-old filmmaker “swore” and “threw” a chair at each other, according to his new biography ‘Hits, Flops, and Other Illusions: My Fortysomething Years in Hollywood,’ they “yelled” as well.
Whoever swore first, who tossed the first chair, or who yelled first is a mystery to me. Perhaps I? However, the team had vanished by the time we glanced upwards. The author writes, “And this wasn’t the last time it happened” in his book, as reported by Vanity Fair in an excerpt.
In another passage, he asserted that the Oscar winner frequently displayed a “edgy” demeanor during the breaks between takes, a time when he had to access his innermost feelings.
The 60-year-old actor reportedly wanted out of the project during the first table read, and he calls his behavior “volatile when riled” too. He was cast as Tristan Ludlow after producer Marshall Herskovitz persuaded him to remain.
How Brad Pitt acts when he’s in the limelight The criticism of Pitt’s actions is nothing new. In her divorce filing, Angelina Jolie cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup, and he was the subject of an FBI and Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services investigation into charges of abuse she made against him.
As a result of one of the couple’s children calling Pitt a “p****” on a private plane trip in 2016, Jolie allegedly put her then-husband “in a chokehold” from behind to try to restrain him, and she subsequently lied to the FBI about it.
His adolescent son Pax went on a Twitter tirade accusing Pitt of being an “awful human being” in a post he made for Father’s Day in 2020.
“To this exceptional a******, I hope you have a happy father’s day! “You consistently demonstrate that you are an awful and vile human being,” Pax wrote.
Your four littlest children, who are afraid of you, show no compassion or understanding for you. The harm you’ve caused to my family is beyond your comprehension, and you’ll never be able to comprehend it.
