The pair star in the latest film by John Wick director David Leitch. It follows five assassins caught in interconnected missions aboard a speeding Japanese bullet train.
While promoting the film at Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, Taylor-Johnson was asked about working with the iconic actor.
“He is in a new chapter of his life, I think,” Taylor-Johnson told journalists, per Variety, at the festival, describing Pitt as a “humble and gracious human being”.
The Kick-Ass star continued: “He just wants to bring light and joy into the world and be around people who are there to have a good time.
“You work with many actors and after a while you start making notes: ‘I am definitely not working with this person ever again.’ Brad has this list too: the ‘good’ list and the ‘s***’ list.”
During Bullet Train’s Los Angeles premiere on Monday (1 August), Taylor-Johnson detailed a gruesome injury he picked up on the set of the new action film.
“We were in a fight sequence and I get drop-kicked across the room,” the actor explained.
“The one sharp bit of the corner where there wasn’t any padding took a chunk out of my hand. And I literally went wham, passed out,” he said.
Alongside Pitt and Taylor-Johnson, Bullet Train features an ensemble cast which includes Sandra Bullock, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Andrew Koji and the music artist Bad Bunny.
In her two-star review for The Independent, Clarisse Loughrey said that Pitt’s goofball energy is wasted in the “exceedingly smug” action comedy.
Bullet Train is in cinemas now.
