Look, let’s just be honest here. We all know who the real star of Benjamin Button was– Captain Mike. Jared Harris is the reason that I will remember this film at all. He totally stole the movie right from under that pretty boy Brad Pitt. Poor guy is going through a divorce right now from British actress Emilia Fox. They say he’s dark and troubled waters– the sensitive, difficult type. Yeah, and? The guy’s Irish, and an actor. Did you know he’s the son of the late, great Irish actor Richard Harris? That definitely explains where he gets his acting chops. Whatever they say about the guy– he is OK in my book. Long live Captain Mike.
The wardrobe in this film was also pretty respectable.
Brad Pitt before makeup. (below) Gimme that jacket, son.
The grey, chunky shawl collar cardigan Pitt wore in one of the scenes in the dance studio was my favorite piece in the movie.
