Oscars 2012: Brad Pitt throws 'Moneyball' a comedic curve
Brad Pitt's stop on the red carpet was almost eclipsed by a monstrous wave of shouts from photographers aimed at attracting the attention his better half, Angelina Jolie, but he still managed to share a bit of what his baseball film "Moneyball" was all about.
"If you avoid the star system you'll find equally talented people for a lot less money," he said about the message behind the best picture nominee.
"And then," he said with a smile, "they cast me."
