The Ocean's Eleven star appears opposite Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling in The Big Short, about the problems which led to the worldwide economic downturn of 2007-2008.

Brad stepped out to unveil the movie, based on the 2010 book of the same name by Michael Lewis, at the premiere in New York City this week (beg22Nov15), and the actor expressed his outrage over the finance industry.

The star holds bankers responsible for the crisis, and he hopes the new film will serve as a warning to future generations.

"It makes me want people to be better," he tells the New York Daily News. "This entitlement that you can make money off the backs of others without being responsible for what it's doing to them or what it could do to them drives me crazy...

"The fact that no one was held accountable after this mass, mass failure drives me crazy so I want this story told. I'm really proud to be able to tell this story... It's something that you have to look out for because the experts will tell you nothing's changed. We've learned nothing, just new ways to do it."
