Llegaba a la agencia, miraba la pizarra y escogía uno de los extraños trabajos que se ofertaban esa semana. “Hice de chófer, de estríper; entregué neveras portables a estudiantes de la universidad…”, relata el actor. “Ya. Un astronauta con un oscuro mundo interior y un monumento zen, dedicado a dejar fluir la vida. En efecto, de cerca, sus ojos azules desvelan cierta fatiga. Vivir es algo jodidamente complicado. y esto te lo dice uno que ha ganado la lotería Y eso que la charla se mueve por los derroteros contrarios. Durante esta conversación volverán de nuevo los recuerdos de casa Pitt. Al envejecer ganas sabiduría y pierdes poderío físico. pero me enorgullece aceptar lo que soy Pitt sostiene que también le ayuda pensar en su infancia. Él es consciente de todo eso. Y no solo.
