Colin Davidson found Brad Pitt ‘creative at heart’ during his painting lessons

The celebrated Belfast artist Colin Davidson has recalled how he taught Brad Pitt how to paint.

In a new TV interview, he discussed his career and time spent with some of the most famous people in the world.

Few could have predicted that Colin’s own art students would one day include Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt.

He said the A-list encounter started with an email from a lawyer who said a client in the United States had enjoyed his work and had asked to learn how to paint.

Sandra Bullock talks Brad Pitt in ‘Lost City’

When asked what Pitt brings to his role, Bullock, a producer on the film, jokes: “Not much. Not really much. I mean, what does he bring to any film he does?”

Kidding aside, she appreciates her fellow Oscar winner’s commitment to the project.

“The thing about Brad is he was supposed to be there for three days,” she says. “He’d just finished shooting. He was dead tired. He bulked up to do a three-day role. I had to ask him for a fourth day for free. He did it.

“You just realize he’s a movie star and a great actor for a reason: Because he works really, really hard. He brought a work ethic that was pretty astounding.”

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.
