Brad Pitt is back in the Oscar race with his latest film “Killing Them Softly.” Brad stars in this crime, gangster film with Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini.
“I immediately latched on to it because it was precisely the stories we were seeing on the news every day,” says Pitt. “Everyone was talking about restoring market confidence and meanwhile people were losing their homes left and right.”
Pitt is now 48 and has six children with Angelina Jolie, who didn’t join him in Cannes. The couple, who alternate their movies so neither is in production at the same time, is currently staying outside of London while Jolie shoots a film in the area.
“It just doesn’t happen back to back to back,” says Pitt. “You need time off to refuel and to be inspired again. There’s no greater inspiration than family.”
Brad Pitt’s new film “Killing Them Softly” made its debut this week at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. For more on Cannes visit www.festival-cannes.fr
