Ann Rice Was Not Happy With The Casting Of Interview With A Vampire

Pitt and Cruise were cast as Louis and Lestat for the film. However, Rice especially felt betrayed by Cruise getting the lead role, which she had specifically reserved for actor Daniel Day-Lewis. In an interview, Ann Rice echoed that:

The Tom Cruise casting is so bizarre, that it’s almost impossible to imagine how it’s going to work. Does Tom Cruise have any idea of what he’s getting into? I’m not sure he does. … His comments on TV that he wanted to do something scary and he loved ‘creature features’ as a kid, well, that didn’t make me feel any better. … the choice is just so bizarre.

Brad Pitt Admitted That He’s Jealous Of Tom Cruise

When asked about his relationship with Cruise during an interview, Pitt referred to co-star Antonio Banderas as the greatest guy. He echoed that, (referring to his interaction with Cruise):

You gotta understand, Tom and I are… we walk in different directions. He’s the North Pole. I’m South. He’s coming at you with a handshake, where I may bump into you, I may not, you know? I always thought there was this underlying competition that got in the way of any real conversation. It wasn’t nasty by any means, not at all. But it was just there and it bugged me a bit. But I’ll tell you, he catches a lot of s*it because he’s on top, but he’s a good actor and he advances in the film. He did it. I mean, you have to respect that.
