Brad Pitt presented his friend and actor Bradley Cooper with one of the Santa Barbara Film Festival’s top honours, outstanding performer of the year, for his work starring as Leonard Bernstein in the biopic Maestro.

While honouring Cooper, Pitt gave a shout out to him in a hilarious way. He joked that the duo has a “couple of things in common,” including “being a movie superstar and also a name.”

Pitt spoke about Cooper’s 2018 directorial debut, A Star Is Born, which the actor also starred in and wrote the screenplay for. “(It’s) a film that’s been made a few times, it’s been made well, so the bar is so high, and yet he’s able to bring in his performance where he’s able to play drunk when he breaks down and still keep an eye on the crew to see the time when to know that he’s got the tape and you can move on. To do that really, really well is nothing short of perfect,” Pitt added.

Pitt then shared views on Cooper’s most recent work. He called Maestro “a masterwork” and described one scene in particular between Cooper and his co-star Carey Mulligan, who plays the late composer-conductor’s wife, Felicia Montealegre, as “alive, kinetic and so natural.”

“This is really difficult to achieve. And yes, it takes great actors but it also takes great construction.” Pitt concluded his speech by sharing his hopes for Cooper’s success at the upcoming Oscars, where Maestro is up for seven Academy Awards. — ANI
