Brad Pitt’s promotional tour for “Bullet Train” has already generated a number of memorable moments — and in an Aug. 4 interview for “Josh Horowitz’s Sultry Quiz” on Comedy Central, the actor provided yet another one when he began lifting up his shirt after a reference was made to his 1999 movie “Fight Club.”
Appearing alongside “Bullet Train” costars Brian Tyree Henry and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Pitt began laughing when shown a photo of himself shirtless in classic movie “Fight Club.” “I’m going to do this interview shirtless if this goes on much longer,” he said, beginning to remove his shirt and flashing a glimpse of his chest.
It wasn’t the only notably chaotic part of the interview. The episode began with host Horowitz teasing Pitt about getting beaten up in “Bullet Train,” to which Pitt replied, “I am a bit of a masochist, so it worked out well.” His costars went on to make fun of him for only having two names, rather than three like each of them, and they also teased him about eating in the film, to which he replied, “Oh my god, I can never eat in a film again. It was just a couple of wasabi peas.” He also declared that he would never watch a movie that he appears in for pleasure.
Pitt has been showing off his lighthearted side this press tour, wearing a skirt on the red carpet because, in his words, “We’re all going to die.” He’s also provided fans with some rare references to the kids he shares with ex Angelina Jolie, praising his daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s dance moves and complimenting his daughter Zahara on choosing Spelman College.
