Like Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro, director David Fincher and Brad Pitt have been forging an actor and director bond that has been profitable commercially and creatively.
The pair have worked together on numerous films including 1995's "Se7en" and 1999's "Fight Club."
Now, the two have a film coming out, that's one of the best films of 2008, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
Co-star Taraji Henson (she plays Queenie, Pitt's adoptive mom) has witnessed the close friendship with the actor and director.
She tells USA Today newspaper that she and other castmembers, including Cate Blanchett, "often felt left out because they have their own way of communication."
"(Pitt)'s David's muse, partly because he's so easygoing. He'll crack a joke, or they'll start ripping (insulting) on each other, and everything is relaxed again.
"Sometimes you have to interrupt them just to get them to speak English. They're like brothers - opposite in the way they act, but they understand each other the way families do."
Aw, how sweet. By the way, Miss Taraji deserves a BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS for her role! Trust me!
