“Oh, man. I’m gonna abstain. I mean, you never know, and it’s really nice when your number comes up. But the goal is for the film to land, to speak to someone, whether it’s now or a decade from now,” Brad said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I find chasing it actually a disservice to the purity of your telling a story, and a shackling thing to focus on.”
