From Jennie Garth to Marie Osmond, Dancing With the Stars has been a shot in the arm to several Hollywood careers. Just ask Cloris Leachman, who at the age of 82 will be going from the dance floor to working alongside Brad Pitt!
The irrepressible actress, who has kept viewers of the ABC reality show laughing all season, is appearing in Pitt’s next movie, the Quentin Tarantino-directed WWII drama Inglourious Basterds.
“I’m not working with him yet,” she told OK! about the hunky movie star. “It’s the best script I’ve ever read. This is a remarkable piece of work although it’s the worst spelling I’ve ever read in my life. Every third word is a misspelled word!”
“It’s about the Germans occupying Paris and the different factions. I play an old Jewish woman in Brooklyn but we’re going to shoot it in Berlin.”
When asked if there’s any chance Brad will fall for her the same way he fell for Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Cloris sighed, “They have children now. You don’t want to interfere with that, interested as he might be.”
