The actor spoke in an interview with GQ about the dark history of his house and the new film
58-year-old actor Brad Pitt starred for the new issue of the Spanish GQ and gave a candid interview.
The author of the photo shoot was Russian woman Elizaveta Porodina, who has lived in Germany since childhood. In her pictures, Brad turned out to be gloomy, in the style of decadence of the 1920s.
For an interview, the journalist arrived at the actor's house in the Hollywood Hills. Although he owns several houses in Los Angeles, Pitt chose the small Craftsman's house for the meeting, one of the first he bought. It was here that the actor spent weeks in self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic. Interesting, but there are no family photos here.
“It was the first house I bought when I made some money back in 1994,” the actor said. Previously, the house belonged to actress Cassandra Peterson, the star of the film “Elvira, Mistress of the Dark”.
Pitt admitted that Cassandra told him about the ghosts living in this house. She heard footsteps in empty rooms, saw the ghost of a nurse sitting by the fireplace, and a man in ancient clothes. Later it turned out that the house had a dark history. Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, told Pitt about this.
It turned out that Hamill lived here in the 1960s until his neighbor hanged himself in the closet.
Pitt admitted that despite the sad past of the house, he likes it here, and when he gets bored, he he just drives to his beach house, imagining that he is making a real trip.
In Los Angeles, he is kept by work. Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and a good friend and confidant, says that when Brad focuses on creativity, it's like magic.
Now Pitt's production company Plan B Entertainment is going to film an adaptation of Miriam Toews' Ellas Hablan novel about a group of Mennonite women who unite to resist their rapists.
Another of his works, the film “Blonde” about Marilyn Monroe with Ana de Armas, will be released soon.
And recently he starred in the thriller “Rapid Train” directed by David Leitch, with whom Pitt worked on “Fight Club”.
“I one of those beings who speak through art. I always have to do something. If there is no work, then something dies in me, “Pitt admits.
So lately he has become interested in ceramics and even showed the journalist porcelain candlesticks of his work.
However, Pitt, it turns out, searched his Chateau with a geolocator, after one of the local residents told him that gold, the treasure of one of previous owners who brought back treasures from the Crusade. But the actor did not find anything of value.
