Brad Pitt was once worried about his reputation.
In a clip from the new E! True Hollywood Story chronicling the 57-year-old actor’s rise to fame, insiders weighed in regarding his state of mind after success in Thelma & Louise at the beginning of his career.
“Suddenly he became somebody who was constantly on the cover of magazines and everybody wanted to know about his social life and who he was dating,” psychologist and Cult of Celebrity author Cooper Lawrence said.

“He had just finished A River Runs Through It and he felt between that and Thelma & Louise, he was concerned about being typecast as a pretty boy. He just said he was looking for something completely different and I thought, ‘Boy have I got a role for you,’” Kalifornia director Dominic Sena explained.
“I met with Brad and I just loved his take on the character. I knew he was the guy.”
He starred in the movie with Juliette Lewis, his then-girlfriend at the time.
“Considering they were in the middle of a relationship, I thought it could either be wonderful or it could be terrible. But I’ve got to tell you, it was a joy. All of this sort of interactive stuff between them felt real. They were just into one another and it was pretty all encompassing,” said the director.
“Brad Pitt arrived in the morning, went into the trailer, and he came out as Early Grayce and that was that.”
