In 2006, Pitts discussed his career motivations during an interview with Damien Echols:

Echols: What is your inspiration for acting? Why do you do it?

Pitts: Money. Very, very occasionally a piece of writing comes along that I personally connect with, that really twists something in me, that I will have nothing but the most fervent dedication to. In that case, I do it just for the gratification of being involved with the piece, just to say I was there. But like I said, that's about .01% of the time. Not that I'm complaining-- when it's otherwise, I'm very well overpaid.

Awards and honors

In 2008, Pitts was presented the Best Ensemble Award at the ShoWest Convention in the United States for his part in 21. The award was also presented to Jim Sturgess, Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth, Laurence Fishburne, Aaron Yoo, Liza Lapira, and Josh Gad for their parts in the movie.
