The host asked if it is hard for the World War Z star to maintain a sun tan, as he lives in his wife’s shadow. “Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan? Because you live in your wife’s shadow,” Zach Galifianakis asked him. Pitt, however, maintained his composure.

The Campaign star then asked his guest if his fans focus too much on his looks that they “don’t even realize that [he’s] just a sh*tty actor.” The question led the Fury star to lose his cool and spit on the host’s face before saying, “next question.”
