“I remember why,“ the 80-year-old actor said to the publication, before praising Pitt for his acting skills. ”Brad developed the script. Then they offered me the part. I saved my comments about the character and the construction of the thing — I admired Brad. First of all, I admire Brad. I think he’s a wonderful actor. He’s a really decent guy. But we couldn’t agree on a director until we came to Alan Pakula, who I had worked with before but Brad had not.”

Ford went on to talk about the creation of the characters and how both actors had a hard time agreeing on a script. “Brad had this complicated character, and I wanted a complication on my side so that it wasn’t just a good-and-evil battle,” he said. “I worked with a writer — but then all the sudden we’re shooting and we didn’t have a script that Brad and I agreed on.”

“Each of us had different ideas about it. I understand why he wanted to stay with his point of view, and I wanted to stay with my point of view — or I was imposing my point of view, and it’s fair to say that that’s what Brad felt. It was complicated. I like the movie very much. Very much,” he concluded. The film would go on to become a worldwide hit achieving $140 million at the box office.
