She recalled four actors who were present for the reading of the role. “Each of them were very handsome.” She further shared,

They all had brown hair and were very talented. I didn’t care who it was going to be. Then the fourth one comes in, and it’s Brad Pitt. He’s so charismatic and so incredibly talented that I was screwing up his audition.”

Davis, in that episode, shared that Pitt got the role among the four candidates who were there for the same. She revealed that she did not know the other actors at that time however she got to know later on who they were. The two of them were Grant Show from Melrose Place, and Mark Ruffalo, the Hulk actor.

The third candidate was none other than George Clooney, who hated his friend, the Troy star for getting the role in that film.

She had an encounter with Clooney on a flight from Europe to Los Angeles, and described him, “This gentleman was very friendly and great.”

She continued. “And finally he said, ‘You know, I hate Brad Pitt.’ I said, ‘No, you don’t — he’s, like, a really good friend of yours.’ He said, ‘No, I hate him because he got the part.’ ”

“I said, ‘Oh, did you want the part?’ And he said, ‘You couldn’t tell when I auditioned with you?’ And it was George Clooney,” the actress concluded.

However, The Tender Bar director is no longer holding onto that thought and he is a good friend of Pitt. The duo starred together in the Ocean’s Eleven franchise and Burn After Reading.
