After teaming up with Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds, Michael had two big flicks with the fellow heartthrob: The Counselor and 12 Years a Slave, the latter of which won a best picture Oscar. Michael even admitted he has a crush on Brad: "Brad is a wonderful human being who has a generous soul. I have a lot of reasons to thank him. He has always been a real champion for me." He then said, "I've been following him ever since. I'm trying to get involved in any film he's doing so I can be with him!"
