Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise can be defined as two of the most coveted actors of recent times. After the explosion of both in the nineties, where they became true idols of the masses, both interpreters have had similar careers, but not very related to each other in terms of roles.
Career and most outstanding awards
Pitt’s career in the world of cinema is characterized by all kinds of roles. The 58-year-old actor has had a career full of stellar performances since its inception, also others that have been forgotten forever, but who finally saw his reward with the Oscar for best supporting actor in 2020 thanks to ‘Once upon a time’ Time in Hollywood’ by Tarantino. A recognition that was also awarded by the jury of the Golden Globes in 2020, a statuette that he also got with ’12 Monkeys’ in 1996.
For his part, Tom Cruise has never received an award from the Hollywood Academy, but he has been nominated three times for ‘Born on the 4th of July’, ‘Jerri Maguire’ and ‘Magnolia’. Three films for which he did win two Golden Globes for Best Leading Actor and an award for Best Supporting Actor. Among his best-known films, the saga of ‘Mission Impossible’, ‘Top Gun’, ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and ‘Valkyrie’ stand out.
What films have they shot together and why do they not understand each other?
Two of the greatest exponents of Hollywood in recent decades have coincided in few productions when choosing their roles. It all started in 1994 with ‘Interview with the Vampire’ by Neil Jordan, a film in which everything foreshadowed that the shooting would go smoothly due to the large cast of young and veteran actors who made up the film. However, Pitt was not very satisfied with the result of the film, even less with the shooting conditions: “I was miserable. Six months in the dark. Contact lenses, makeup, I’m playing the role of the slut *, “said the actor in the American media.
Pitt himself came to reconsider leaving the film in the middle of filming, however, the high figure of 40 million dollars that he had to pay for leaving the production aside was impossible to accept even for a star like him. For his part, Cruise never spoke negatively about the filming or production of ‘Interview with the Vampire’, but both actors did not coincide again in a film until many years later.
In other statements from Pitt to ET, the actor commented: “You have to understand that Tom and I are going in opposite directions. He is the north pole. I am the south. I always thought there was some kind of underlying competition between the two of us that prevented us from having a real conversation. It wasn’t something unpleasant, but it was something that was there and it bothered me a little bit,” he stated.
Everything seems to indicate that the relations between both stars are merely professional. On some occasions they have confirmed from both sides the interpretive talent of their professional colleague, even giving each other compliments, however, the filmography of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt together is reduced to three works: ‘Interview with the vampire’, ‘Go Like Hell’ and the documentary ‘The magic of sound in the cinema’.
