Brad Pitt's Loaded Role

Brad Pitt was drunk when he agreed to star in his new movie.

The star, whose movie 'Inglourious Basterds' debuted at the Cannes Film Festival last night (20.05.09), accepted the part after a raucous night out with director Quentin Tarantino.

He laughed: "We went out together... I got up the next morning and saw, like, five empty bottles on the floor and some sort of smoking device on the floor. Then, somehow, six weeks later I was doing the film."

In the movie, the 45-year-old actor plays a US army lieutenant who is leading a band of Jewish-American soldiers in the fight against the Nazis in World War II. Mike Myers and Diane Kruger also star.

Brad - who raises six children with his partner Angelina Jolie - explained he was initially unsure about signing to the film, but was convinced when he heard more about it.

He said: "As I get older, it's about the company you keep because you're away from your family.

"This was something new for me. I wish all films could be made this way. It's definitely outrageous, which I was game for!"
