Brad Pitt Occupy
November 11, 2011 by staff
Brad Pitt Occupy, Occupy Wall Street has its honest share of celebrity supporters, including many whom have gone down to Zuccotti Park to check out the encampment. And while their mission extends far past kudos from Hollywood, they just received one of their largest movie star endorsements.
Brad Pitt, as star of this fall’s “Moneyball,” has done a lot of talking about rethinking baseball’s financial logic, but in doing so, he’s also made a lot of allusions to broader fiscal issues. In a press conference to promote the film in Japan earlier this week, Pitt brought up the OWS protestors as necessary agents of change.
“I reckon what you’re seeing in America is questioning a logic that has not served us very well,” the star said. “A logic that, I mean for example, is defined for corporate lobbyists instead of the best needs for the people and people are feeling screwed a modest bit there.”
Pitt went on to comment, in a outward allusion to OWS, that those protesting a logic need to have answers, too.
“And so the most vital thing is really, not just getting swept up in the fervor of a fight, if you’re feeling marginalized and frustrated, sometimes the release of a fight can pacify for the moment,” Pitt continued. “But beyond that, really understanding the details, really understanding the universal problems, and you can’t stop there, really looking for solutions. And if your’e going to say one guy’s terrible, you’ve got to back it up with this is how we fix it.”
