Brad Opens Up About His Inglourious Motorcycle Moment

Brad Pitt arrived in Tokyo yesterday, and this morning he was up for an Inglourious Basterds press conference alongside Quentin Tarantino and costars Melanie Laurent and Julie Dreyfus. They're all there to promote the movie before its release in Japan, and the stars sat down to independently field a few questions. Brad opened up about his work in the film, as well as his recent motorcycle troubles and his plans to expand his bike collection. Here's more:

  • On his recent motorcycle accident: "I had a little mishap. No injuries, except my ego. I was trying to get away from some paparazzi and instead gave them a good story. It was my favorite bike, so that is really sad."
  • On replacing his damaged bike: "I will definitely be looking at motorcycles [while in Japan]. You've got some of the best builders right here."
  • On landing the role in Quentin's film: "We had heard about this script for about eight years before it came my way, so it had taken on a mythical dimension. I was doubly flattered because Quentin originally wrote the part for himself."

Ah, someone didn't like my last comment. I'll ammend it then. The man looks like he has no idea who he is. He always has. He looks like he's trying to be what he thinks Angelina Jolie is.

Inglorius Basterds isn't a hit because of Brad Pitt. It's a hit because it's a Quentin Tarrantino film. Period. I can't remember ever hearing someone say "I can't wait to see the new Brad Pitt film" unless it was during his hot days. Which the man ain't in now.

Oh, and the money that will come from DVD/Redbox/Netflix sales will probably come to another $50-$60M or more, which will be all for the studio!! Hate on that, sucker!!!

Anon 25, I know you and haters like you want to down play anything Brad does but, honey, the fact is "Inglorous Basterds" is a mega hit and Brad is the reason why!!! Nothing you say will change that!! The movie has earned $300M worldwide with Japan to go, as mentioned above; production costs were $70 with advertising in the $30-$40M range. That leaves around $200M clear with about half going to the studio. Believe me, in Hollywood, that is a hit that every studio would love!!!Comparing IB to Paranormal is stupid and disingeneous, and you know it. That has nothing to do with anything. You're just pulling sh!t out of your ass to try to make a point and even you should know it doesn't make sense. Just go on hating and let the truth hurt!!

Some people here must be masochists, you hate him so much, but you are always looking and commenting his post. Can you please explain me why do you torture yourself???????????????? You know because normally people tend to avoid things that are disgusting for them, so I really don't understand you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess "hot" is completely subjective because he looks ridiculous and as though he likely smells, to me. If that's your thing, so be it.
