Actor Brad Pitt says that the most important thing to consider in a movie project is "longevity".
The 48-year-old believes it doesn't matter if a film doesn't win top awards, as the key to a good project is one that lasts longer.
"Filmmaking is about longevity. Is it a quality picture? A quality story? Is there something original about it? The thing we miss the most is the degree of difficulty, like in 'The Tree Of Life'," contactmusic.com quoted Pitt as saying.
"Just to aim for something like that - I think there's a quiet victory in the degree of difficulty there beyond what's going to be in the record books as the best picture of the year. Films that I've loved doing like 'Jesse James' and 'The Tree of Life', they're 'fine wine' pictures - they'll age well. They've got legs," he added.
