Harrison Ford has detailed his ‘complicated’ feud with Brad Pitt | Movies | entertainment

Harrison Ford may be promoting Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, but he’s always watching where he’s coming from.

During a new interview, he talks about the 1997 picture The Devil’s Own, which he worked on with Brad Pitt.

As it turns out, the movie was full of behind-the-scenes tension, with each of the two lead actors having different opinions on how the picture should turn out.

Ford explained that when he was first hired for the film, he kept his criticisms to himself.

Tell Respected: “Brad developed the script. Then they offered me the part. I memorized my comments about the character and the structure of the thing — I liked Brad. First of all, I admire Brad. I think he’s a great actor. He’s a really great actor. A gentleman.”

Ford went on to say that they “couldn’t agree on a director” until they both landed on filmmaker Alan Pakula.

“I worked with [Pakula] before, but Brad hasn’t.

Then the Star Wars actor explained that he wanted more depth in his character, so he began rewriting the part.

“Brad had this complex personality,” said Ford. “And I wanted complexity on my part so that it wasn’t just a battle of good and bad. That’s when I came up with the bad shooting thing.”

The star referred to a scene in the movie where his character witnesses a police officer kill someone, putting the protagonist in a moral quandary.

It wasn’t long before things got complicated between Ford and Pete. “I worked with a writer,” Ford said. “But then all of a sudden we were shooting and we didn’t have a script that Brad and I had agreed upon. We both had different ideas about it.”

Ford didn’t seem to hold any grudges about the experience, though. “I understand why he wanted to stay with his point of view, and I wanted to stay with mine — or I was imposing my point, and it’s fair to say that’s how Brad felt. It was complicated.”

He added, “I like the movie so much. So much.”

Meanwhile, Pitt previously called the film’s production “the most irresponsible part of filmmaking—if you can call it that—that I’ve ever seen”.
