How sweet is it that even Quentin Tarantino is starstruck by Brad Pitt?
Tarantino has worked with Pitt on two notable films, Inglorious Basterds and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the latter having earned Pitt the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
As a result, Tarantino can only gush about the Oscar winner, likening him to something like “starshine” in a conversation with GQ Magazine.
The reason this all came about is thanks to the magazine diving into the 58-year-old actor’s world, granting him a spot on the August cover:

MovieWeb explained that the magazine also spoke to the film director, who had the kindest words for Pitt:
“He suggests an older-style movie star. He’s really good-looking. He’s also really masculine and he’s also really hip; he gets the joke.… But the thing that only the directors that work with Brad and the actors that act opposite him really know, what he’s so incredibly talented at, is his ability to really understand the scene. He might not be able to articulate it, but he has an instinctive understanding about it.
He’s one of the last remaining big-screen movie stars. It’s just a different breed of man. And frankly, I don’t think you can describe exactly what that is because it’s like describing starshine.”
The auteur also said that directing Pitt was basically like watching a finished movie on set as it was unfolding in real-time, per IndieWire:
“I noticed it when we were doing ‘Inglourious Basterds,’” Tarantino told GQ.
“When Brad was in the shot, I didn’t feel like I was looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I felt like I was watching a movie. Just his presence in the four walls of the frame created that impression.”
Both the actor and director have expressed a desire to exit the Hollywood scene, with Pitt saying during his interview that he considers himself “on his last leg”.
Before he goes, though, he’s starring in that fun-looking movie where everyone tries to kill him on a train in Japan.
Meanwhile, Tarantino announced that he is close to retiring, teasing his 10th and final “swansong”, “mic drop” movie.
It would be pretty cool if he collaborated with the actor he seems to be head-over-heels with for that then, right?
