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.”
