If you had a few hours alone with the most famous actor in the world, what would you ask him? That was the thought process driving director/actor Eli Roth when he appeared alongside Brad Pitt in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino flick, “Inglourious Basterds.” Naturally, Roth asked something we all might want to know: how does the dude go to the bathroom?

“I was wondering: ‘You’re at a baseball game and you have to take a p-ss,” Roth said with a laugh, remembering his query on the set of “Inglourious Basterds.” “What do you do?”

Credit Mr. Angelina Jolie with an open-book answer, as Pitt told Roth that it happens to him all the time. “It’s a real problem,” Roth recalled Pitt’s response. “(He told me) ‘you go into a bathroom at Dodger Stadium, and everyone is looking at you. It’s kind of weird… you have to wait until the Dodgers are up, and it thins out – and then you find an empty stall.’

Brad’s bathroom behavior didn’t discourage Roth from enjoying his experience on the Tarantino set, or with the famous movie star leading the cast. Pitt, Roth and the rest of the ensemble bonded over their work on the bloody WWII epic about a group of Jewish-American soldiers determined to take down the Nazis.

“Brad Pitt is amazing,” Roth said of his experience appearing opposite Pitt, Mike Myers, B.J. Novak and others. “He was the coolest.

It was claimed by some site a few weeks ago that Tarantino was cutting lots of time from IB. But this is what Harvey Weinstein has to say about that in the latest GQ:

“Those stories are all untrue. There’s no fu**ing way. Here, read my lips: That is nuts. Please don’t even write that, it’s insanity. There’s not even a question of that. Whatever you’re reading, it’s like some insane blogger… There’s no truth to any of this. He’s not gonna cut. What he’s doing is just reorganizing some scenes. I mean, the guy had six weeks to cut his movie [for Cannes]; most guys take six months. Most guys take a year.

When I worked with Martin [Scorsese], we’d do eighteen months in post-production. Quentin Tarantino cuts a movie in six weeks? Come on, there’s sh** on that cutting-room floor that’ll blow your brains out. I was telling Quentin the opposite-”You should put that sh** back in the movie.” There’s scenes with Brad Pitt and the Basterds, and I’m praying he puts that sh** back in, ‘cause it’s un-fu**ing-believably great. Listen-this movie will be between two hours and twenty minutes and two hours and twenty-seven minutes. I don’t think it’s going to be shorter-it’s just a question of rearranging. I know he’s putting footage back into the movie. I know he’s got some cool sh** that he didn’t get time to address.”
