Brad Pitt Reveals What Brings Him To Tears

And basically, it’s crapping and watching movies. I’ll explain.

Brad Pitt graces the February cover of W magazine, and when asked what movies make him cry, he says he’s really not “much of a crier at films. But there was one…”

Apparently, while he was vacationing in Cabo, he caught “Montezuma’s revenge.” Which means he had traveler's diarrhea.

“I could not keep anything down. I was stuck in a hotel room with no windows and was just doing what you do when you're sick.”

i.e. Making offerings to the porcelain god, taking the Browns to the Superbowl, dropping the kids off at the pool, etc. You get the idea.

"On day two of this extremely painful episode, I watched a film called Life As A House. Kevin Kline is an architect and learns he has terminal cancer. He's estranged from his teenage son and decides they're going to finish this house.”

Sounds cry-worthy enough, but Pitt says:

“I don't know if it would still hit me the same way, but on my 27th hour of pure wretchedness, this movie just crushed me. I should watch it again to see if it has the same effect."

The man must have been completely dehydrated at that point.

And although Brad Pitt is one of the best actors of our time, he says he’s not proud of every career move he’s made.

When asked if he could do any roles over, Brad answered:

"Um...the first 12 years of my career, I would think... Okay...first 11 years."
