Clip: 09/23/2019 | 8m 13s

As one of the world's biggest and best-known movie stars, Brad Pitt is spending as much time helping get films made as he is acting. His latest project, "Ad Astra," is about a journey to the far reaches of the solar system, as well as the journey inward for a tortured soul. Pitt sits down with Jeffrey Brown to discuss his career, and why he helps make movies when he’s not the star.
