Brad Pitt knows how to show a sacred self-mockery. In the blockbuster Bullet Train, the Hollywood star indeed slips, the time of a brief reply, an amusing reference to the neurological disease of which he is a victim, prosopagnosia, a disorder of face recognition. Did you repeat it?
In the film, the character of Ladybug, played by the American actor, manages to remember the one who wanted to kill him, a man, in this case the Wolf (Bad Bunny), whose path he had crossed during a marriage. “I’m really a physiognomist”he then declares, a small sentence a priori innocuous but which actually echoes Brad Pitt’s own prosopagnosia.
It was in 2013 that Brad Pitt revealed that he was a victim of prosopagnosia, a neurological disease characterized by the fact of not recognizing faces. “So many people hate me because they think I disrespect them”he said at the microphone of Esquire magazine. “You know, it’s a mystery to me, I can’t catch a face.”
In an interview recently granted to GQthe 58-year-old actor again raised this sensitive subject. “Nobody Believes Me”he gets carried away. “I want to meet someone else who has this problem!” Failing to have been able to speak with another patient, Brad Pitt will have in any case at least been able to exorcise his evil in an offbeat manner with a short sentence in Bullet Train.
