Brad Pitt’s ‘Benjamin Button’ make-up shocks his fatherFebruary 2nd, 2009 - 9:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, Feb 2 (IANS) Brad Pitt’s make-up of an 80-year-old was so realistic that it shocked his father when he visited him on the sets of “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button”. Pitt portrays a character who ages backwards after being born with the physical limitations of an old man in the film. And the prosthetic ageing Pitt went through for the role was so life-like it scared his father, William, reports contactmusic.com.
“William was stunned to see Brad looking older than he is. It seemed he was actually a bit perturbed. He said it was eerie. He looked pleased though when the director explained that the make-up process took five hours every day and that Brad sat there patiently never complaining. He (William) replied, ‘That’s how he was brought up: you get through it and you don’t complain,” said a source.
