Brad Pitt has revealed that he wants to make ageless movies like “fine wine” that will stand the test of time. The 48-year-old actor claims that it does not matter if a film fails to win top awards when it is released, as the key to a good project is one that ages well.
“Filmmaking is about longevity,” Contactmusic quoted the actor as saying.“Is it a quality picture? A quality story? Is there something original about it? The thing we miss the most is the degree of difficulty, like in The Tree Of Life. Just to aim for something like that - I think there’s a quiet victory in the degree of difficulty there beyond what’s going to be in the record books as the best picture of the year. Films that I’ve loved like Jesse James and The Tree of Life, they’re ‘fine wine’ pictures - they’ll age well. They’ve got legs,” he said.
Pitt does not like to take risks in his career but insists that he has made “smart” choices with his movie projects. “I think of, say, Cary Gran who made a career of doing similar things all the time, and I love him every time I see him, but it’s not for me."
“My choices have been smart, not risky,” he added.
