Brad Pitt and David Fincher were first brought together in the mid 1990s on the set of Fincher’s movie, Seven. The gripping and deliciously sadistic thriller marked the beginning of their prolific collaboration. This Friday, February 24, 2023, the 48th César Awards ceremony honored the legendary career of David Fincher.
Brad Pitt’s speech was a touching one. “I love the man with all my heart,” said Pitt. He also shared a handful of anecdotes with guests, crediting him with introducing us to the concept of binge-watching. “With his first series, House of Cards, he was one of the decision-makers that decided to release the whole season at once, changing the way that we view our series.” The star further expressed his admiration for Fincher, stating : “We, who have been so fortunate to ride in his slip streams, will tell you that he is warm, a big softy, and that he is incredibly articulate and rigorously honest, and takes great care when explaining his vision. We will try to describe the pearls of wisdom that fall from his mouth, but we will fall short.”

Brad Pitt and George Clooney are ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple!
Pitt, 59, and Clooney, 61, were seen on the set of their upcoming Apple thriller Wolves on Tuesday, looking relaxed as they filmed scenes for the movie in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.
The two looked dapper in similar layered ensembles, consisting in part of gray slacks, black leather jackets and shiny black shoes.
As seen in another photo, Pitt wore a teal velour jumpsuit over a white undershirt and white sneakers and carried a yellow Loro Piana cashmere scarf to ward off the chilly N.Y.C weather.
The Babylon star also sported the same newly shorn hairstyle he debuted at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, where his appearance made for more than a few celebrity shoutouts.

The past year has been quite busy for Brad Pitt. After starring in Bullet Train, popping up in Sandra Bullock’s The Lost City, and executive producing the critically acclaimed Women Talking and She Said, he capped off 2022 with the release of Babylon, Damien Chazelle’s frantic, more-than-three-hour ode to 1920s Hollywood. In it, Pitt stars as Jack Conrad, a suave, if somewhat messy, Hollywood luminary grappling with his fading star power. Even before its December release, the ambitious film, over a decade in the making, received nine Critics Choice Award and five Golden Globe nominations, including a Best Supporting Actor nod for Pitt. For W’s annual Best Performances issue, the 59-year-old Oscar winner reflects on his extraordinary career so far.

Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt can’t get you into the most rip-roaring Hollywood parties, but with their latest film, “Babylon,” they can give you a taste of the singular magic of a movie set.
Art imitates stressful life in a massive scene early on during Damien Chazelle’s over-the-top ode to old Hollywood. In “Babylon” (in theaters Friday), filmmakers are trying to line up a key shot in a silent costume drama where A-list power player Jack Conrad (Pitt) plants a kiss on his leading lady just as extras bang around in swords and shields behind them, an orchestra plays, an explosion goes off and the sun sets – all at the same time. And that had to be like clockwork for Chazelle and Co., too.
“I’m so excited that people who aren’t in the movie industry can watch this and be a part of that moment,” Robbie says. “Because if I could give that to everyone in the world, I would.”
