Brad Pitt is all smiles with George Clooney on film set of 'Wolves' hours after Oscar snub for 'Babylon'
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: It was an 'Ocean’s Eleven' reunion as George Clooney and Brad Pitt were spotted hanging out together on the sets of their upcoming thriller ‘Wolves’ in New York City! Hollywood heavyweights were all smiles as they were spotted in the Harlem neighborhood. This appearance comes just hours after the Oscar nomination announcements were made by actors Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams, where Pitt was overlooked for his performance in the Damien Chazelle directorial, ‘Babylon.’
While Pitt himself did not receive the Oscar nod, the movie received several nominations, including Best Original Score for Justin Hurwitz, Best Production Design for Florencia Martin and Anthony Carlino, and Best Costume Design for Mary Zophres. And it was not just Pitt who was snubbed. His co-star, Margot Robbie, was also not recognized for her work in the movie. Another big snub in the nominations was for filmmaker James Cameron, who was not nominated for his direction in 'Avatar: Way of Water'.
For his laid-back time out with his friend Clooney, Pitt rocked a black leather jacket over a gray fleece zip-up and a white button-down shirt. He finished off his sleek street look with a pair of grey trousers and black leather dress shoes as well. He also made no attempt to hide his greys as his hair was coiffed to perfection with gel, and had also seemingly freshly trimmed his beard. Pitt was seen in great spirits as he spoke to members of the crew near his trailer.
As for the ‘Ticket To Paradise’ actor, Clooney made a fresh appearance in a black shirt under a blue sweater and he layered with a black leather jacket as well. He paired the jacket with dress pants and dress shoes similar to Pitt.
This is Pitt and Clooney’s first collaboration since the ‘Ocean’ trilogy and the 2008 movie ‘Burn After Reading'. There has been lots of speculation as to whether or not there would be another 'Ocean' movie, especially with several speculations stating that the actors, including Matt Damon, were reuniting for it.
“Rumours of a film starring George, Brad and Matt have swirled for years but the timing was off and their jam-packed schedules meant that it was just not possible,” a source said at the time to The Sun. “Finally the right team for the job has come together in a bid to make it a huge success and the main stars thought it would be good fun to revisit," the source further revealed.
