Quentin Tarantino made a recent appearance on Amy Schumer's podcast, 3 Girls, 1 Keith. On the show, he discussed his latest film, Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood, which co-starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

Pitt swept the 2020 awards season in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in the film as "Cliff Booth." On Schumer's podcast, Tarantino opened up about how he directed Pitt's shirtless scene in the film.

At first, Tarantino thought that Pitt would need pointers on how to remove his shirt. "It was funny because actually in public Brad is kind of shy about things like that," he said.

"At the same time, he knows exactly what time it is. I go, 'So, I'm thinking maybe you unbutton the Hawaiian shirt, and you peel that off, and then peel off the Champion T-shirt.' He was like, 'Really? You want me to go through all that button bulls---? I'll just take it off in one bit. Go!'"

Once Pitt made himself clear, Tarantino backed off. "I'm like, okay, this guy knows exactly what time it is. S--- the f--- up and let the master do his job!

"Even when you see him in the work shed and the way he puts on the leather gloves and puts the wire in his mouth all butch and macho. He just knows what time it is," the director said.
