In honor of his movie making it to Number 1 this weekend, I thought I would highlight the most memorable parts of the Interview Magazine interview by Brad Pitt.
They talked about the obvious topics like Ashton's upcoming movies, Guess Who (with Bernie Mac), and A Lot Like Love (with Amanda Peet), Demi, Hollywood, fame and religion. They actually spent way too much time talking about religion.
Here's the best of the best:
BP:What about your girl? Has she made you swear not to get her?
AK: Yeah. You can't go down that road.
BP: Jen made me swear if you guys ever came her way, I'd roll over. I gave her my word.
AK: ...I don't represent Christianity, and I don't represent Kabbalah.
BP: Although they're trying to make you that right now.
AK: Of course they're trying, because they have to categorize you otherwise, it doesn't make sense.
On Sean Penn:
BP: He's as good as it gets...
AK: Sean Penn is one of the most amazing actors ever.
BP: He's a rock star. Come on! He's a poet.
The BP/AK love fest:
AK: I watch the guys I look up to,...I look at the way you've done things, always choosing for the director, the material, and what it's saying. I really look up to that and appreciate the way you carry yourself as a man and present yourself...The first time I met you,...you were, like, the nicest, most genuine person I met that entire night. I was just blown away.
BP: First, I thank you for that. But you know, you're going to get the same....
BP: What is that stupid-ass truck you were driving?
AK: My semi? That's the most idiotic think I've ever purchased in my life....I had to have it...Then I got it, and was like, "Son of a bitch, I should have looked at it first." I did not realize it was that big.
On George Clooney:
BP: I remember two years ago you were after Clooney. I would tell you as your friend: Don't do it. Don't ever go near it. He'll kill you and everything you love. I know it's tempting, but don't do it.
AK: The ultimate "punk'd" for me was when Bush got elected. I mean, that was me getting punked upside the head.
On Ashton's passions:
AK: Spending time with Demi wouls be my number one passion, and I really enjoy spending time with her kids.
WOW how sweet, Ashton loves Demi. Other stupid questions included are you wearing underwear, and how long have you been working on the house....the answers, yes, and a year and a half.
