“I’ve read a lot of books or seen a lot of movie.” Saying his name is not exactly hard.
The star of “Lights Out: The Life and Times of a Street Star,” it was Pitt who took us on a tour about the night life of the Sunset Strip as he went from car to table to disco at the age of 14 to “wander through the streets of the Valley.” He’s also taken us on a series of fascinating adventures, including being chased out of San Francisco for robbing a bank and being a stuntman in “Ladies’ First”, “The Wild One,” “The Green Hornet” and “Vikings.” “It’s the last time you’ll ever hear me say ‘Ladies’ First,” the actor told us. “I’m not going to do that now.”
“There are people with a lot of wisdom who say that the only way your life is going to get better is if you do everything you can to avoid the possibility of losing interest in it,” the actor told us.” The celebrity-saturated social media era has a way of putting one out from the crowd–and that’s what seems to be happening with people talking a lot on Twitter, using social media, trying to get out there even just a little bit more, and they’re often doing that more than they were getting out there the past 50 years when everybody was just sitting on the couch.”
One of the key ingredients for having “quality social media” was allowing yourself to be “proud of who you are” and “focusing on what’s important,” the star said. And though it can feel a lot of pressure to be “more social than you are,” Pitt told us “many people take a lot of pride in that.”
“Our main goal with Twitter, or more broadly with all of that, is to share it with other people,” the actor added. “One of the ways we do that is by saying we don’t use it for making enemies and we feel it’s really important for us to share it with other people and they should do the same. I’m not going to say that it’s easy or free. I’m not asking for your hard-earned money or your free time.”
Though we’d like to think everyone could just take a minute and follow along and enjoy the fun of the social-media-free era. On the other hand, maybe not. Let us know in the comments the social-media time you’ve wasted trying to connect with us. But the truth is, you’ve been living in the moment. The world of social networking has a way of making you forget all that.
