The 48th Cesar ceremony, broadcast this Friday, February 24 on Canal+, was marked by the surprise of Brad Pitt, who came to present a César of honor to director David Fincher.
It’s obviously a surprise that no one expected. This year, the Honorary Cesar of the 48th Cesar ceremonybroadcast on Canal+ this Friday, February 24 live from L’Olympia, was awarded to the director David Fincher to whom we owe the films Gone Girl, Zodiac or The Social Network. To give her her prize, it was Virginie Efira who took the stage at the legendary Parisian venue.
The actress, later awarded the César for Best Actress for her role in See Paris again, first shouted his love to David Fincher before bringing a certain Brad Pitt on stage. Not planned in the program, the American actor landed on the stage of L’Olympia, under the dumbfounded gaze of David Fincher and the other people present in the public who rose to greet his arrival.
“Hi, my name is Brad Pitt, and I’m a survivor. I’ve been in three David Fincher movies. No one ever said making a Fincher movie was easy. Everyone will tell you It’s worth it. Some say he’s a perfectionist, it’s true. Rumor has it he’s already done 90 takes for a single shot, that’s completely untrue, it was 92”particularly ironically the American actor before presenting his award to the director.
