It looks like Brad Pitt has that effect even on fellow stars! While in attendance at the Los Angeles premiere of his film, Beautiful Boy, Timothee Chalamet talked to ET and recalled that time Pitt, who is one of the project’s producers, visited the team on the movie set.
Visibly starstruck, Timothee raved that ‘It was nuts, yeah, you could really feel the star power in the room, and seriously it totally felt like an energy had shifted in the room before I even saw he was there. It is a real thing that just humanized all of us.’
Are we even surprised? Brad Pitt is a huge name in the industry after all!
As for Timothee’s role in the new movie, the star portrays Nic, a young man who struggles with meth addiction and with the help of his dad, David, played by Steve Carell, he fights to get his life in order.
Obviously, that was a very challenging character to tackle and the actor opened up about how he managed to do it so perfectly.
‘It felt like, to try to play a drug addict would be self-serving or something but to play a human who’s addicted … that felt like where I could find my through line and I really hope it works for people or audiences if they see it and hopefully they actually do. But more importantly, it is like, I hope it is a representation of what people are going through in the world at the moment but also in America today,’ Timothee explained to the outlet.
You can go watch Beautiful Boy in a theater near you starting Friday, October 12. Are you looking forward to it?
