Despite working with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Roberts, they are not Brad Pitt’s favorite actor

Brad Pitt has been around for a long while, and he certainly has an impressive resume to show for it.

Some of the movies that come to mind when you think of the 60-year-old are the likes of Fight Club, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood and Babylon.

And because he has been in so many movies over the years, Pitt has worked with a lot of different actors.

The legendary actor has starred in films with other legends, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Roberts – some of the biggest names in Hollywood for sure.

And while you may think Pitt rates them as the best actors he has ever worked with, his favorite comes from a different scene.

Pitt believed a member of the New York theatre scene is the greatest he has ever worked with, adding that she’s the ‘most beautiful woman’ in the business.

The actor shared this sentiment way back in 1996, so things may have changed now.

Nonetheless, he told Tiger Beat magazine at the time: “I know very few men to look up to. That’s why I appreciate the older films because they show a man standing up for his principles.

“Like [Robert] Redford. He portrayed the kind of man men wanted to be, and the kind of man women wanted men to be.”

Despite appearance seemingly being a huge factor when it comes to Hollywood fame, Pitt believed that the greatest stars aren’t always people that would be referred to as ‘sex symbols’.

Pitt explained: “When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It’s just a first impression. Then there’s someone who doesn’t catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them, and they become the most beautiful thing in the world.”

His favourite thespian of all time, Dianne Wiest, wasn’t typically regarded for her looks or for being a ‘sex symbol’. The 75-year-old actor’s most notable roles include Edward Scissorhands and Footloose.

“The greatest actors aren’t what you would call beautiful sex symbols,” Pitt said, adding: “I’ll tell you who my favourite actress is: Dianne Wiest. And you wouldn’t call her a sex symbol. Dianne Wiest is, to me, the most beautiful woman on the screen.”

After studying theatre at the University of Maryland, Wiest made her Broadway debut in 1971 with Robert Anderson’s Solitaire/Double Solitaire.

She went on to forge an incredibly successful career on stage, before also making it big in film – winning two Academy Awards for Woody Allen flicks Hannah and Her Sisters and Bullets Over Broadway.

Dianne also starred in 80s vampire flick The Lost Boys.
