What’s behind the sudden rash of stories about how this movie star is now BFFs with this actor and having a bromance with that actor?
He’s trying to build up his own group of guys he can make movies with, like the way Ben and Matt [Affleck and Damon] or George and Brad [Clooney and Pitt] or James and Seth [Franco and Rogen] do it.
You know, like writing and producing and acting together with the same group on a regular basis.
He’s always worked alone.
Maybe he just never saw a need to be part of a group.
He’s older now so making new friends doesn’t come naturally to him.
That’s why he’s so awkward about it and why it all feels so forced.
