Hollywood actor Brad Pitt reportedly carries a little black book of actors he will and won't work with again.

The news comes from Bullet Train co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who revealed to Variety that the 58-year-old actor keeps careful notes on who he wants to be on set with for his next film.

Taylor-Johnson said: "He just wants to bring light and joy into the world and be around people who are there to have a good time.

"You work with many actors and after a while you start making notes: 'I am definitely not working with this person ever again'.

"Brad has this list too: the 'good' list and the 's**t' list."

One member of Hollywood who is reported to be firmly on Pitt's good list is actress Sandra Bullock.

The actor starred with Brad Pitt in The Lost City and she also features in Bullet Train. Brad has previously spoken highly of the actress, saying: "Sandy is an old friend. She's a diehard person I could call for favours over the years and I have done many many times and she's always there.

"Her timing was great, she was a great person to have in my ear in a situation like what which is actually kind of intimate. It just worked out really well and she had her film and I got to do a little bit of hers. I think we'll continue to do the same."

The Fight Club star was also full of praise for Bullet Train co-star Joey King who plays hired killer Prince.

In a recent interview he said: "She's a powerhouse. She was just 21 when we were filming. Listen, I consider us pretty sharp but she's the sharpest of us all."

The news of Pitt's secret hot list and not so hot list comes as the actor has also revealed he's moving into the final stage of his acting career.

In June, the Hollywood icon told GQ he was on 'the last leg' of his career. He said: "I consider myself on my last leg.

"This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?"

Whilst he might be talking of stepping back, his current projects lined up are keeping the actor busier than ever.

Not only is he starring in David Leitch's Bullet Train this summer, he's also releasing a slew of highly anticipated films under his Plan B production company.

Those films include Women Talking, an adaptation based on Miriam Toews’ bestselling novel, which sees a group of women from a religious colony who grapple with their faith following a series of sexual assaults from the men in the colony. The film stars Frances McDormand and Sarah Polley.

Another of the movies is Blonde, based on Joyce Carol Oates' historical fiction. The flick sees icon Marilyn Monroe through her rise to fame and tragic death and stars Ana de Armas, coming along with a rare 'adults only' age rating from Netflix.
