Brad Pitt Agrees That 'Criminal Bankers Should Pay' For Fueling The Financial Collapse

• True Activist

To promote the new film The Big Short, actors Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling gathered on the red carpet for the screening earlier this week.

Sure to become an American classic, the film follows four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predicted the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000's. The group chooses to take on the big banks and expose the corruption and sheer unaccountable nature of the system run by the elite.

An unexpected surprise, however, came when Pitt and the movie's director, Adam McKay, bravely disclosed that their interest in the film extends beyond theatrical.

Shares TheFreeThoughtProject, when Pitt was asked if banks should be held responsible for the crisis that inspired the film, the actor replied with a sigh and said:

"I'm as frustrated as you are… I think it's horrible that no bank officials have ever been held accountable. Therefore, there's no incentive to stop this behavior."
