While Hollywood star Brad Pitt charges a whopping amount for all his movies, on the other hand, his body double David Paterson managed to earn just 80 pounds for posing as the superstar in the latest movie World War Z.
Pitt was reportedly paid 9 million pounds for the movie. Paterson, who looks identical to the actor was up for the role just to get an experience. So, his look-alike settled for the deal. "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 are asked to do something like that and you can't really say no," said the 26-year-old Paterson.
Paterson who is a Scottish man was asked to imitate Brad Pitt. "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," Paterson explained.
Paterson also revealed that he has not yet seen World War Z, which released June 21 in the United States. "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. World War Z is an apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Foster. The film is based on a 2006 novel with the same name by Max Brooks.
