Brad Pitt prefers production

London: Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt says he prefers to go behind the camera rather than working in front of it.

The 49-year-old actor said he likes the creativity of putting the pieces together, reported Showbiz spy.

"As I get older, I am enjoying more the production side of things ? not being so forefront in the camera ? the creativity of putting the pieces together," he said.

The actor said he loves films of '60s and '70s.

"I'm a fan of film first and was since I was a little boy sitting in Missouri. I go back to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and All the President's Men. And Dr Strangelove is still the funniest film I have ever seen.

"There Will Be Blood is one of my absolute favourites; incredible, a whole film dedicated to someone's hatred," he added.
