Quentin Tarantino on how Brad Pitt perfected his shirtless Once Upon a Time in Hollywood scene
Director discussed moment from movie on Amy Schumer's podcast.
Did you know that Oscar-winner Brad Pitt takes off his shirt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? Personally, I can't say I noticed. But apparently the World War Z actor does show off his upper torso in Quentin Tarantino's movie and the director discusses this very subject on the latest episode of Amy Schumer's podcast 3 Girls, 1 Keith.
"It was funny because actually in public Brad is kind of shy about things like that," says Tarantino. "At the same time, he knows exactly what time it is. I go, 'So, I'm thinking maybe you unbutton the Hawaiian shirt, and you peel that off, and then peel off the Champion T-shirt.' He was like, 'Really? You want me to go through all that button bulls---? I'll just take it off in one bit. Go!' I'm like, okay, this guy knows exactly what time it is. S--- the f--- up and let the master do his job! Even when you see him in the work shed and the way he puts on the leather gloves and puts the wire in his mouth all butch and macho. He just knows what time it is."
