An excerpt obtained by Vanity Fair recalled an incident when Edward Zwick and Brad Pitt almost got into a fight on Legends Of The Fall Set. “I kept pushing, and Brad pushed back. One afternoon, I started giving him direction out loud in front of the crew—a stupid, shaming provocation—and Brad came back at me, also out loud, telling me to back off. Brad wasn’t about to give in without a fight.”

He continued, “In his defense, I was pushing him to do something he felt was either wrong for the character, or more “emo” than he wanted to appear on-screen. I don’t know who yelled first, who swore, or who threw the first chair. Me, maybe? But when we looked up, the crew had disappeared. And this wasn’t the last time it happened. Eventually, the crew grew accustomed to our dustups and would walk away and let us have it out. ‘We hate it when the parents fight.’”
