LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Brad Pitt was "embarrassed" about a pimple on his butt while filming his 'Thelma & Louise' sex scene and had a make-up artist touch it up between takes, his co-star has revealed.

Geena Davis, 66, made the claim about her co-star, 58, on the 1991 film in her new autobiography 'Dying of Politeness.' She also noted how the film's director Ridley Scott sprayed Brad's abs with Evian water during the shoot. This comes as the father-of-six is embroiled in an ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, 47.

“Brad, for his part, couldn’t have cared less about all the fuss over his looks," Geena said in an excerpt from her memoir obtained by The Sun on Sunday, October 16. "He was just embarrassed about a tiny little pimple on his butt that the make-up gal re-covered after each take.”

The actress also recalled how she agreed to show reveal more skin than she wanted in the scene after seeing Scott audition queues of body doubles to stand in for her. “I was uncomfortable with the projected extent of skin I was being asked to show, so Ridley Scott found himself interviewing a slew of body doubles who were more used to flashing the flesh than I was," she wrote. “A line of them snaked through the lot where we were filming, right past my trailer door, and I couldn’t stand it any longer – I’d worked as a model, after all – so I told Ridley I’d do it. I needn’t have worried. Ridley seemed much more concerned about how Brad looked than I did in that scene, making sure the lighting was just so, and even personally spraying Brad’s abs with Evian.”

Brad recently said he was "grateful" for the chance given by Scott, 84, and Geena, to star in ‘Thelma & Louise', in which he plays a conman who robs Geena's character Thelma, forcing her and Louise, played by Susan Sarandon, 76, to embark on a doomed journey of theft and disaster that ends with them driving off a cliff.

“I had nothing to show for myself, except for my work as an extra, and they took a chance on me," Brad said about landing the part in an interview published by The Sun. He also expressed regret about making his voice so high for the role. “I’m more aware of how high my voice is in it. My a** must have been clenched so tight, being the first one," he quipped. “I think they (the filmmakers) were desperate, to tell you the truth. They were already shooting because a week later I was on set, working.”

The Hollywood heartthrob added that he was picked for the part at his final audition among five other candidates, who he said included George Clooney. Brad recalled how Geena picked him after exclaiming, “The blond one… hello!”
