Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Brad Pitt Sidestepped Giving Advice to Donald Glover on New TV Adaptation
Brad Pitt Plays Coy When Asked for Advice on Mr. & Mrs. Smith Remake
Donald Glover, the star of the upcoming TV adaptation of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, recently revealed that he reached out to Brad Pitt, who played the lead role in the original 2005 film, for some advice. However, Pitt was not very forthcoming with his guidance.
“I reached out to Brad,” Glover said. “He just Brad Pitt-ed his way out of it. I was like, ‘I just need some tips,’ and he just charmed his way out of it. He was like, ‘Oh, you’ll do great, kid.’ That kind of thing.”
Glover admitted that he was hoping for some more concrete advice from Pitt, but he understands that the actor was probably just trying to be supportive.
“I mean, he was very, very sweet and nice and that was very helpful,” Glover added. “I just wanted to get a good understanding … It was great. He gave me good advice.”
