Brad Pitt in the famous Thelma & Louise scene

According to Brad Pitt, that was the scene that launched him into the big leagues. Thus, it’s one of his favorite scenes.

“Yeah, that was my entry into the big leagues, I guess. Geena [Davis] was so sweet and kind and delicate. That love scene, I think, went on for two days of shooting. She took care of me.”

This transformed his reputation from an innocent and overtly polite to a certified s*x symbol. And he maintains his title still. The role required a talented actor with a certain x-factor that isn’t possible to describe in words but one certainly knows it when one sees it. Louis DiGiamio agreed Brad Pitt was fit for the role by saying to The New York Times in 1991.

“[Pitt] had what we needed,”

Brad Pitt’s scene partner Geena Davis shared her experience from the auditions to Vanity Fair in 2011.

“I did fine with the first few guys,–but the last one [Pitt] was so cute I kept messing up my lines. I’m dying because I’m thinking, ‘He’s great, and I’m ruining his audition.’ I kept saying, ‘I’m so sorry!’ But he’s so chill: ‘Hey, don’t worry about it. It’s all good.’ ”

Famously Goerge Clooney also auditioned for this role and did not end up getting it which he resents still. Brad Pitt also wasn’t the first choice and got after a lot of back and forth.

“I just thought, I’m the guy for this. But they went through a couple of other actors. I didn’t get the part at first, and then it came back around and I didn’t get it again, and I went, “Huh. All right. Moving on.” And then it came back around again. I feel like it was three times.”
