Looks can kill and more. Brad Pitt who has been voted the “sexiest man on earth’ has been dropped from the upcoming movie State of Play as the director Director Kevin McDonald felt that he was too good-looking to play the role.

According to contactmusic.com, Pitt was originally to star in the big-screen thriller as a journalist but the actor quit during pre-production, citing concerns with the script.

“Gladiator’ star Russell Crowe brought in as a late replacement for Brad. He’ll now star opposite actor Ben Affleck’s character of a Congressman in the film.

The director is sure that Crowe’s rough features are more suited to the role.

He said, “In a way, I was lucky it didn’t work out with Brad. The relationship between the journalist and the politician was meant to be between somebody who feels inferior, who’s a bit of a schlump, who kind of can’t get a girlfriend, and somebody he’s looking up to and admires his polished politician friend. That is not the dynamic of a Brad Pitt. He’s not looking up to anyone thinking ‘Oh, I wish I could have your girlfriend. ”

Sometimes being too good looking can cost one quite a bit, indeed. -Sampurn Media
