- Los Angeles, July 19 (IANS) Actor Brad Pitt charges a hefty amount for every movie, but his body double David Paterson managed to earn just 80 pounds for posing as the superstar in latest movie "World War Z".
While Pitt was reportedy paid a whopping 9 million pounds for the movie, Paterson, who looks identical to the actor was up for the role just to get an experience. So, he didn't mind the deal.
?I basically had to be Brad for the day and copy everything he did on screen. Brad was there the entire time, and they were filming over the course of months, so it must have been quite tough," mirror.co.uk quoted Paterson as saying.
?I was paid 80 pounds, but it wasn?t anything to do with the money. I?m not too fussed about that. I did it for the experience. You get asked to do something like that and you can?t really say no," he added.
Paterson has not yet seen "World War Z", which released June 21.
?I didn?t get a VIP pass for the film, nothing like that at all, and I haven?t seen it yet. I walked away with around 80 pounds, no autograph and no VIP invites," he said.
