From the gallery

“I remember being an extra in Less Than Zero,” he says, offering me a lukewarm bottled water (Morocco’s tap water is rumored to make your stomach implode). “I got to stand in the doorway during a party. I wore a pink-and-white-striped tank top and sunglasses-I got paid 38 bucks.” Despite the lame paycheck, Pitt loved being on a set. – Details 2001.
