Gyllenhaal starstruck by Brad

Jake Gyllenhaal talks about being starstruck when meeting Brad in W magazine (January ’22 issue).

Have you ever been starstruck?

… And I was definitely starstruck when I first met Brad Pitt on the set of The Good Girl. I was working with Jennifer Aniston, who was his wife at the time, and there were a lot of very racy scenes. I remember putting my hand out to shake his, and accidentally hitting the door. He said, so confidently and kindly, “Well, you have another one. It’s all right.” He was very, very, very sweet to me, and it was actually a really lovely exchange. But, yeah—I was starstruck.

The Lost City Trailer

Ancient treasure, a lost city, billionaire baddies — by the looks of the first trailer for The Lost City, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum really have their hands full.

The film, directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, also features Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Bowen Yang, and a cameo by Brad Pitt.

Bullock and Tatum previously teased the cameo in an exclusive first look with EW, with the former revealing it’s a stunt-heavy part that steals the show.

“And we let him. He just came in, and he tore it up. He’s really funny,” she said of Pitt.

Added Tatum, “He came in and played a certain character that fits into this weird world, and just signed up for it completely and wholly. I’ve met him, but to get to work with him was a whole different thing. I couldn’t focus. It was really an out-of-body experience in a lot of ways.”

In case you’re unaware, Studio Miraval (now called Miraval Studios) is one of the legendary studios in music history. Albums like the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street and Pink Floyd’s The Wall were recorded there. Studio Miraval has also hosted sessions by luminaries like The Cure, Sting, Sade and The Cranberries. Not too shabby.
