In an interview with Giant Magazine, Pitt said: "I don’t even know what Saw or Hostel are. Are they like Texas Chainsaw Massacre? I guess I’m drawn to things like Lawrence of Arabia."
The actor had harsh words for those who may not like his new film.
"[Audiences that don’t like Funny Games] can kiss my ass. I hope they do [get angry with] Funny Games. It challenges you. If you’re not up to the challenge, go see Saw."
Pitt was also forthright in his views about the US military, stating: "People think that, until you’ve killed someone or had someone shoot at you, you’re not a grown-up. Going to war isn’t growing up; it’s moving backwards."
Funny Games, Michael Haneke's Hollywood remake of his Austrian film, revolves around two psychotic young men who take a family hostage at their lake house.
