“Yeah, I had a restraining order against him for a while,” he said before adding, “incident in ’94 we don’t like to talk about.” Pitt further suggested humorously that the acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino brought them back together.

While the Bullet Train star appeared to make a jest, speculation suggests that it may have something to do with Pitt’s ex Gwyneth Paltrow. The two started dating in 1994 and were together for about three years, before going their separate ways.

Paltrow has admitted in an interview that the Titanic star tried making a move on her, but she turned him down. “Nope, never made out with Leo. He tried back in the day,” the Seven actress revealed during a conversation on the Call Her Daddy podcast.

However, the Hollywood stars appear to have buried the hatchet and have shared a good friendship since their collaboration on the 2019 film. Both actors have openly lauded each other and expressed their mutual admiration.

“We both live in Los Angeles and this is about the changing of the culture in the late 60s, and we understand these dynamics of these professional relationships that also turn into families.”
