Juliette Lewis and Brad Pitt dated for three years after the 1990s filming Too young to die. The movie was a pretty big break for both actors, who were still climbing the Hollywood ladder at the time (with a few important roles between them). When they started dating, Pitt was 27, and Lewis 17. Years later, Pitt would label romance as one of his “greatest relationships.”
To this day, the two actors speak positively about each other. Lewis has since explained that the two are no longer in the same “universe,” as GEO.TV notes, but she once deeply liked the Mr. and Mrs. Smith star.
Juliette Lewis on falling in love with Brad Pitt
In 1993 (when she and Pitt were at the height of their romance), Lewis spoke to the Los Angeles Times about their relationship. She says:
We’re like love time, where we just like to see each other every day and we don’t get bored with each other, so that’s really, really cool. Also, we get to be together when we work and… talk and collaborate.
Lewis and Pitt were quite the subject at the time, and despite the paparazzi’s fascination with Pitt’s later relationships (especially his marriages to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie), his romance with Lewis remains one of his more successful.

Lewis explained that they “met on a movie of the week” and noted that she “already loved him as an actor” before taking their onscreen chemistry to the next level. Lewis went on to explain that at the time they aspired to work together “over and over and over again”. They were going to play opposite each other in 1993 Kalifornia.
Juliette Lewis reflects on her relationship with Pitt years later
Years after their split, Juliette Lewis opened up about her past relationship with Pitt. She told the Guardian:
He’s not in my universe at all now. It sounds like a high school relationship because now he’s a very famous person. I look at this person with whom I shared a little history. I hope he finds happiness because I really loved him. He’s a very upright guy, good. … It was my longest relationship and we both lost our anonymity together.
