Harrison Ford addresses the Brad Pitt controversy
Ford recently gave an interview Sir and admitted that there had been discussions with Brad Pitt. However, the actor pointed out that all the blame for the disagreement was his.
“Brad developed the script. So he offered me the role. I saved my comments about the character and the making of the thing — I admired Brad … First of all, I admire Brad. I think That he’s a great actor. He’s a really nice guy.”pointed to the actor.
“But we couldn’t agree on a director until we reached Alan Pakula, who I had worked with before; But Brad didn’t work with him.”
Ford then went on to talk about his co-star’s defiant character in the crime film.
For those not in the know, the film’s plot focuses on a member of the Irish Republican Army, played by Brad, who flees to New York and hides in the house of a policeman, played by Harrison Ford, who does not know the fugitive’s identity.
At a certain point in the feature, the protagonist, played by Ford, sees his partner in a shootout and is undecided about going ahead with it.
The sequence was the actor’s suggestion to the team, as he wanted his character to be as complex as Brad.
“I didn’t want it to be just a battle between good and evil. It was at that moment that the idea for this tough shoot came up.
I worked with a screenwriter – but all of a sudden we were shooting and we didn’t have a script that Brad and I could agree on. Each of us had different thoughts about it.Added actor.
Harrison Ford closed the case:
“I understand why he wanted to make his point and I wanted to make mine; Or was I getting my point across, and it’s fair to say that Brad felt the same way.
It was complicated. I love film. Very.”
So far Brad has not commented on his former colleague’s speech.
