Brad’s latest Oscar-bait flick premiered at the Toronto Internation Film Festival on Sept. 6, and if his opinion on the movie is any indication, we are in store for one of the best movies of the year.
In Brad Pitt’s mind, he may have reached the pinnacle of his acting career. After his latest film, 12 Years A Slave, opened at the Toronto Internation Film Festival on Sept. 6 to rave reviews, the 49-year-old actor surprisingly suggested that he’d be happy to never act again after starring in this Oscar favorite.
Brad Pitt Praises ’12 Years A Slave’ At Premiere
“I just have to say, if I never get to participate in a film again, this is it for me,” Brad said in a Q&A after the TIFF premiere of 12 Years A Slave, according to Us Weekly. “It was a privilege.”
Brad is both a producer and supporting actor in the movie that portrays the true story of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free man who is abducted and enslaved in the pre-Civil War South.
Though Brad is confident about the movie to the point that he thinks it’s the apex of his career, he was also humble about its chances at the 2014 Oscars. “They all deserve it,” he said about the movies premiering at TIFF. “Everyone of these performances is worthy.”
Brad has been in so many hugely successful, critically acclaimed movies — Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Moneyball — so his high praise of 12 Years A Slave cannot go unnoticed. We know we’ll be rushing to the theater when the movie opens on Oct. 18.
