Did you know?

  • The crew worked closely with Levi's to obtain items from their Vintage Clothing collection to authenticate the various time periods captured throughout the film.
  • This film was adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Over the years Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard had been attached to direct and Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise were attached to star as Benjamin Button.
  • Brad Pitt claims that it took five hours to apply his make-up every day.
  • The filmmakers committed to using New Orleans as a location before Hurricane Katrina took place. Two days after the disaster, the city called the production crew and requested that they still go ahead with their plans to film in the city.
  • Director Danny Boyle was forced to push back his Solomon Grundy project because he felt that it was too similar to this film. He made Slumdog Millionaire instead.
