Brad Pitt is so hot he's hurting everyone's feelings — including his fellow straight costars!
In one of the most relatable anecdotes we've probably ever heard from a Hollywood actor, Succession star Brian Cox opened up to Vanity Fair about some of the more memorable roles throughout his career, and 2004's epic, box-office war film Troy immediately came to his mind, not only because he fought hard for the role of antagonist Agamemnon, but because he was jaw-dropped at how "stunning" and "beautiful" his costar and the film's lead — eternal, Oscar-winning heartthrob Brad Pitt — was.
"I’ve never pursued anything," Cox said of trying to land the role of the Greek King. "I’ve always allowed it to fall out the way it fell out. I knew the part was available and I knew I was dead right for the role. I volunteered to fly myself to London to meet Wolfgang Petersen. It was a great cast."
And speaking on the Greek God-like physique and appeal of Pitt, Cox continued:
"I remember at one point being agog at Brad. He’d never been in costumes like that...Brad walked on set and my jaw was down because he was so stunningly beautiful. I’m straight but I thought, 'Wow, my God! This guy is stunning.' What chance does one have on the screen against this beautiful, beautiful man?"
Same, Brian. Same.
