Brad Pitt is one of the most well-known American actors of the current time, having starred in many big name films throughout the years. In a candid interview with The New York Times, the actor -- who will turn 56 next week -- reflected on some of his previous work and discussed what he wishes he would have done differently, as reported by Collider.
Pitt said he is particularly haunted by his performance in one of his earlier movies, 12 Monkeys. Even though he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his work in that movie, Pitt says he can't even watch the film's second half because he wishes he would have done it differently.
There are also the movies that didn't end up working out the way he'd hoped. For example, he said he often wonders about the film, To the White Sea, which tragically got shut down.
Perhaps surprising to some of his fans, Pitt told The New York Times that it was actually Troy that really impacted the way his career shifted. He said Troy wasn't his first choice of project at the time, but, as he had turned down another opportunity recently, he wanted to get to work on something. He continued, saying that -- while he gave it his best shot -- he quickly realized that he didn't like the way the story was being portrayed. Because of that, he wasn't really connected to the film, he explained.
