Movie superstar Brad Pitt experienced such severe cravings when he quit smoking recently he was "ready to kill".
But Pitt - who is married to Friends beauty JENNIFER ANISTON - says the fitness regime he was forced to keep up during the gruelling shoot was a deeply miserable experience.
He explains, "I had to quit smoking. I'm now happy about it because these things were killing me. But at first I was really missing my cigarettes.
"The withdrawal was so hard that I was ready to kill - which was actually helpful for the role I was playing.
"Against my nature, I had to invest a lot of time and sweat on the physical aspect of my work. I didn't like that at all. The trainer warned me that every day would be unpleasant. He was right."20/04/2004 17:20
