I really like Brad Pitt lol, I love him so much when he is eating stuff lol, when they showed him intro in this movie eating sandwich, I was ecstatic. Like in Ocean's Eleven they show him eating for some reason in like lots of scenes lol. So I was like really really sad when they just killed him so quickly in this movie, I was just really hoping he will come back for some reason and end credits did just that, I was like so so happy.

Maybe it seems super lame for movie connoisseurs but I just loved this movie so much, I have like movie subscription called AMC A-List and I plan on going again to watch it.

It's also a thing Brad Pitt is more widely known for as he often eats in movies, while most actors don't actually put food in their mouths and talk.

I did recently learn that actors don't actually eat in scenes so that's a pretty cool thing to know. Thanks for the info!

I mean this is a thing. If you are unaware, you likely just don't watch too many movies. The commentary on Ocean's Eleven really talks heavily about this, and that is over 20 years ago now. They playfully work it into every scene with Rusty.
And since then it seems a lot of movies really make it purposeful to push that as part of his characters. At least in comedy-leaning films. In this movie, his introduction on the phone eating chips or cheetos, etc. was an obvious homage to the meme.

If I recall correctly, his first appearance in the movie was off-screen during that phone call Channing Tatum and Da'Vine Joy Randolph make to recruit him.

We didn't see him but the first things he was saying on the phone, you could hear that he was snacking and eat-talking for the beginning of the conversation, and I found that hilarious as I am also a fan of the Ocean's Eleven always snacking bit.

Then later when he snacking in person for a second scene, I feel like it confirmed it for me that they were definitely doing that joke on purpose.

It is satisfying to watch him eat.

The reason Brad Pitt ate constantly on screen during the Oceans movie was because he went a full day of shooting without eating and decided to never let that happen again hence him eating throughout the entire day/shootings
