I can’t wait for this movie. This was the first book in my library. God love Michael Lewis. Read the book!
Brad Pitt, who stars in the financial drama “The Big Short,” blasted bankers at a screening for Academy members on Monday.
Asked if banks should’ve been held more accountable for the crisis that inspired the film, Pitt sighed, “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.”
Director Adam McKay said, “We did a screening . . . Nancy Pelosi was there . . . We talked about that. It’s the oldest scam . . . [Bankers] tell the leaders, ‘If you put us in jail, you’ll ruin the economy’ . . . I think Obama has done a lot of good things, but I think one of the big black marks on his presidency is that no one went to jail.”
