Out of all the celebrities who have weighed in so far on the Occupy Wall Street movement, Brad Pitt perhaps bests describes why the protesters are upset and what they need to do in order for their movement to really have an impact and change things. However, I wonder how Tyler Durden, Brad Pitt’s character in “The Fight Club” would have to say about Occupy Wall Street. I’m going to take a wild guess and say he perhaps wouldn’t agree with Pitt’s pragmatic and sensible explanation.

“I think what you’re seeing in America is questioning a system that has not served us very well,” the star said. “A system that, I mean for example, is defined for corporate lobbyists instead of the best needs for the people and people are feeling screwed a little bit there.”

“And so the most important thing is really, not just getting swept up in the fervor of a fight, if you’re feeling marginalized and frustrated, sometimes the release of a fight can pacify for the moment,” Pitt continued. “But beyond that, really understanding the details, really understanding the systemic problems, and you can’t stop there, really looking for solutions. And if you’re going to say one guy’s bad, you’ve got to back it up with this is how we fix it.”
