Brad Pitt asked for cup of coffee as fee for ‘Deadpool 2’ cameo

Los Angeles: Ryan Reynolds has revealed that Hollywood star Brad Pitt wanted the actor to bring a cup of coffee for him as his fee for doing a cameo in “Deadpool 2”. In the “Deadpool” sequel, Pitt made a surprising blink-and-you-miss-it appearance as the meta-superhero’s ally known as The Vanisher, ET Online reported.

The Vanisher was invisible in the entire film, except for a split second shot where he is revealed to be none other than Pitt.

“Brad Pitt said he’d do it if Ryan personally delivered a cup of coffee from Starbucks, right?” asked “Deadpool 2” co-writer Rhett Reese.

“Sort of embellished. I was told all he wants is a cup of coffee and I said, ‘Like a franchise or just one individual cup of coffee?’ And I was told one individual cup of coffee, which was really his way of saying, ‘I’m doing it for nothing.’ And it was a total solid and the nicest thing anyone could do,” Reynolds responded.

“I just loved it, because what’s more irresponsible than taking one of the biggest movie stars in the world and giving him a role that is utterly wordless and invisible with an exception of three frames of film? Yeah that’s kind of amazing,” he added.

“Deadpool 2”, directed by David Leitch, is currently in cinemas.
