“The character in the first hour of Benjamin Button was created in post, basically, with Brad inspiring it,” says director Spike Jonze in an interview with AICN’s Drew McWeeny. “[David] Fincher totally invented his own technique, and it’s insane. I’m always a little skeptical whenever you hear there’s a CG character [in a film], but I never even noticed it. It’s just this totally compelling, really charming character, you know, because he’s like a little boy inside an old man’s body, and the performance is amazing.”
