Actor + Director | 40 Great Collaborations In Movies

David Fincher
Brad Pitt

Best Film
Fight Club. Hey, if you were going to imagine yourself a rebellious alter-ego, you'd want it to be Pitt's Tyler Durden, a man so awesome he looks good in a fluffy pink dressing gown.
Notable Pairings
Seven, Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

What's The Secret Of Their Success?
Brad Pitt could easily have ended up with Matthew McConaughey's career, looking oh-so-pretty in a string of forgettable rom-coms. Instead, he's always gone for slightly dark, slightly twisted films like those that David Fincher makes - and aren't we glad he did? Pitt's perfect features and often underestimated acting chops work so well when contrasted with the depravity of Seven, the anarchy of Fight Club and the, er, wrinkles of Benjamin Button.

Were They As Good With Anyone Else?
Fincher made the ace Zodiac without Pitt, and Pitt's been great in films like The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. But we'll still fork over anything they want to charge next time these two fancy working together.
