Film That Made Him Cry

Pitt is as much of a tough guy in real life as portrayed by his various characters in award-winning films but the actor has somewhat of a soft spot when it comes to certain films.

To make his character even more believable, Pitt decided to get his teeth chipped. He later booked an appointment with the dentist to have his smile fixed. Although his effort to fit into the role is beyond commendable.

He Can Fly a Plane
