In a chat with Entertainment Weekly, the 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' actor explains his belief that chasing awards is 'actually a disservice to the purity of your telling a story.'

AceShowbiz - Brad Pitt has no interest in campaigning for an Oscar, should his roles in "Ad Astra" and "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" land nominations at the beginning of next year (2020).

The 55-year-old insists he has never had any interest in pitching for awards - and he's not about to start now.

"Oh, man, I'm gonna abstain," Brad tells Entertainment Weekly. "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.

"I find chasing it (awards) actually a disservice to the purity of your telling a story, and a shackling thing to focus on."

Pitt has had three performance Academy Awards nods for his roles in "Moneyball", "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", and "Twelve Monkeys" respectively, and he picked up a win as a producer on 2014's Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave".
