Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson says his costar Brad Pitt has a “good” list and “s–t” list of actors he will and won’t work with.
The pair star together in “Bullet Train” helmed by “John Wick” and “Deadpool 2” director David Leitch.
Promoting his latest onscreen venture at Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, the actor dished on what working with Pitt was like.
Referring to Pitt as a “humble and gracious human being,” the actor told Variety, “He is in a new chapter of his life, I think.”
Taylor-Johnson, who has previously starred in action movies like “Kick-Ass” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” continued, “He just wants to bring light and joy into the world and be around people who are there to have a good time.
“You work with many actors and after a while, you start making notes: ‘I am definitely not working with this person ever again.’ Brad has this list too: the ‘good’ list and the ‘s–t’ list.”
A fight scene from the film — which was released in the US on Friday — between the two stars left Taylor-Johnson hospitalized after he sustained major injuries on set.
After implementing a “crazy mad Keto diet” in an effort to get “scrawny and lean” for the film, the actor fainted due to “low blood sugar levels” shortly after sustaining a hand injury.
“We were in a fight sequence and I get drop-kicked across the room. And the one sharp bit of the corner where there wasn’t any padding took a chunk out of my hand. I literally went wham, passed out,” he told Variety of the incident.
“Then I came back and was like ‘Should we go again?’ and they were like ‘No, no, no. You gotta go get stitches at the hospital.’ So then I spent the night in the hospital,” he added.
“When you sign up for a David Leitch movie you know you gotta get a couple battle scars, some war wounds,” he added.
