Brad Pitt: 'Interview with the Vampire made me miserable'

Brad Pitt has described the filming of Interview with the Vampire as a "miserable" experience.

The Tree of Life actor recalled being demoralised by the physical challenges of the 1994 fantasy drama, further dismissing his iconic character Louis de Pointe du Lac as a "bitch role".

"I am miserable [in the film]," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Six months in the f**king dark. Contact lenses, make-up, I'm playing the bitch role."

Ack ! Can I say how sick I am of Hollywood " Gift Lounge" photos !!

I get it,  I get it - companies create these huge rooms filled with UNBELIEVABLE free gifts for very wealthy, well compensated actors to come and take anything they'd like,  in exchange they will pose for a photo with that product.

Pure capitalism at it's best- I get it,  but it seems increasingly gratuitous and obscene in this climate of proposed austerity, unbelievable income disparity, poverty and unemployment.

So please,  very wealthy, well paid actors think about not showing up for this scheme. It's a little hard for middle America and lots of your fans to take right now ... and you know you can afford to buy that item yourself if you want it.

Did you miss the scary in True Blood this year ? Are you looking for a really scary show to watch? Try Paranomal Witness on SYFY

I love the real Ghost Hunters and thankfully the new Season has started with Grant and Jason but this year following GH has been a new show called, Paranormal Witness. 

You can watch the whole first ep on the site - I gotta say I actually had to turn it off because I was so creeped out by the first episode and this week's episode with the young mother and the car wreck was really good. The production values are really high, the writing is good , the recreations of events are very well done with even some nice FX and they always mix it with interviews with the real folks, who seem credible and sane making it all even scarier.

Here is how it's described in press release:

Using a mixture of intimate first-hand testimony, actual home video and gritty realistic drama, Paranormal Witness transports viewers into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary, terrifying and sometimes life-threatening paranormal events.

The September 14 episode presented two real life paranormal tales. The first was “Haunted Highway.” Dave Stautzenbach’s 21-year-old daughter and his 3-year-old grandson mysteriously disappeared on a car journey to southern California. But then disturbing premonitions and the ghostly sighting of a naked woman drew different family members and the police to the exact same spot down a ravine at the side of Highway 50 – and the shocking fate of mother and son was revealed. In the second story, “Kentucky UFO Chase,” two cops are drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse when their police helicopter was chased across the night time skies of Kentucky by a glowing orange orb that fired fireballs at them.
