Pitt.
“I don’t keep film pictures at home. But I have this one in my office framed because it always makes me smile. It is recorded with ‘Love and hugs, Meat’. That sums it up nicely. He was so funny, genitl and warm with everyone. A sweet soul. Rest in peace, Meat Loaf”, wrote norton in a first tweet with a photograph of both hugging in a scene from The fight Club.
Norton later completed his message with a second tweet:
“To us, he will always be ‘Bob.’ Those were some incredible months of laughter and irreverence. The hardest thing about working with Meat was surviving any of these ridiculous moments without cracking up. Him lying on the table playing dead and then singing Zeppelin. Good times,” he concluded.
In the film, Meat Loaf plays Robert Paulson, a former bodybuilder with testicular cancer who attends a support group, where he meets the film’s narrator, played by Norton. Later, Paulson joins “Project Mayham”, to deal a major blow to corporate America.
