Brad Pitt was recently interviewed by WWE’s Cathy Kelley to promote his latest release, Ad Astra. When Cathy asked Brad if the actor would be interested in getting inside a WWE ring, the 55-year-old actor had a hilarious response. Watch the interview below.
Brad Pitt has been having a terrific year at the movies with two big releases in 2019; Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and James Gray’s Ad Astra. In one, Brad plays Leo’s extremely gorgeous stuntman and in another, we see the actor playing an astronaut in search of his missing father. While Once Upon A Time In Hollywood released in July and received rave reviews alongside being a box-office success as well, Ad Astra released in the US, this week, and is already being considered as Pitt’s best performance, to date.
For the promotions of Ad Astra, WWE’s Cathy Kelley got a chance to interview Brad Pitt and spoke to the actor about playing the role of an astronaut in the film. However, it was her last question that really piqued our interests! While referring to Brad’s Ad Astra co-star, Liv Tyler and how the actress gets her children to WWE Events, Cathy asked the 55-year-old actor if he would like to come to a WWE Event. To which, Pitt shared that he would love to come to one of the shows. Furthermore, when Kelley quizzed the star if he would like to be someone’s manager or if we will actually get to see him inside a WWE ring, Brad had a hilarious reaction!
“Oh, you’re talking about actually getting in a fight? Really? Hell no! (laughs) Yeah, no! I’ll be a participant? No. I’ll spectate. Can you imagine? What a disaster! Oh My God! (laughs),” Pitt revealed.

Meanwhile, in an earlier interview, when Brad was asked about all the Oscar talk surrounding his performances in 2019, the actor shared with Entertainment Weekly, “Oh, man. I’m gonna abstain. I mean, you never know, and it’s really nice when your number comes up.”
“But the goal is for the film to land, to speak to someone whether it’s now or a decade from now. I find chasing it actually a disservice to the purity of your telling a story and a shackling thing to focus on,” Pitt added.
