A few weeks ago when I interviewed Diana Murdock, she mentioned that she’d like to be a fly on the wall at Brad Pitt’s place…for obvious, non-PG-13 reasons. She then named her favorite Brad Pitt movie as Troy.
Then someone in the comments section said their favorite Brad Pitt movie was Legends of the Fall.
Can I be honest here? I’m not all that familiar with Brad Pitt’s work. I mean, I’ve seen some – Fight Club, Troy, Meet Joe Black – but after looking at his filmography on IMDb, I realized I haven’t even scratched the surface. And since I’ve got a house full of kids who need attention and three books I’m writing and a stack of books I’m reading that’s taller than the house and oh, yeah, the house, it needs cleaning…
the chance of seeing most of these movies is slim to none.
That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate Mr. Pitt’s work, though – it’s pretty much universally acknowledged that the boy can act, and looks? Well, come on, right? A woman’s blood would pretty much have to be running cold to not appreciate this guy’s exterior.
I wanna know – how do you prefer to take your dose of Brad Pitt? What’s your version of his BEST OF?
As Tyler Durden in Fight Club?
Or as Billy Beane in Moneyball?
How about Rusty Ryan in Ocean’s Eleven?
Or do you have a thing for guys who do the opposite of aging, like Benjamin Button?
Or Joe Black?
Or how about Jeffrey Goines in Twelve Monkeys?
Maybe Tristan Ludlow in Legends of the fall (who, by the way, is channeling some serious Rein Torvald in this last gif)?
Or do you prefer Mr. Pitt in a movie I haven’t listed here? Discuss amongst yourselves. I want to know the when/where/how/why!

This is funny. I just saw Legends of the Fall a few days ago (gotta love Netflix). I really enjoyed it. The only other thing I remember seeing him in was Ocean’s Eleven, which I also liked a lot. I did see Ocean’s Twelve…but that was just weird. I may have seen him in other movies (or not). If I did, they obviously didn’t stand out.
I kind of look at him as part of one group, which would include Leonardo DiCaprio (GREAT in Catch Me If You Can!!!), and Matt Damon. I LOVE Matt Damon. Bourne, We Bought a Zoo…he’s just great. 🙂
Oh, I dig Matt Damon and Leo, too! Matt Damon is so frigging charming.
Legends of the Fall is an incredible movie, for so many reasons you should see it one day. I fell in love with him in “Thelma and Louis” he reminds me much of the hubby in that one, hat and all. Meet Joe Black is a good one, and Ocean’s allofthem is wonderful… but 12 Monkeys is actually in my limited dvd shrine. Troy, m’eh not so much. But hey where is “Mr and Mrs SMITH”????? That after all has much to do with why she wants to be a fly on that wall…
I think I saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith once, but I don’t really remember much about it…seems like maybe I was pregnant and miserable or something. Can’t remember! 🙂
This is a tough decision. Legends. Fight Club. Brad isn’t just beautiful, he picks wonderful projects and he nails the character and the roll.
I first saw him as a boy toy in “Thelma & Louise”. He was gorgeous then & he’s gorgeous now!!
