Brad Pitt jokes it was easy to play a ‘guy who gets high and doesn’t get on with his wife’

Loading...

Brad Pitt poked fun at his being single and director Quentin Tarantino’s foot fetish during his acceptance speech after winning the award for best supporting actor at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

‘I have to add this to my Tinder profile,’ the actor quipped as he held the statue for his work on Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.  

As Pitt was announced as the winner, the camera panned to ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, who applauded the announcement.

Moments later, Aniston would receive her own statue, winning for best actress in a drama. Pitt was then seen backstage watching on a television screen as his ex-wife gave her own acceptance speech.

Aniston got the award for her work in The Morning Show, the drama streamed on Apple TV+ and which also stars Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell.

‘Thank you, my brothers, my sisters. This means so much. More than I can possibly fathom,’ Pitt said as he took the podium.

‘I want you to know I watch everything. I watch you all, and the work has been mesmerizing. So I thank you.’

Pitt then laughed at Tarantino’s famous foot fetish. 

‘I want to thank my co-stars, Leo [DiCaprio], Margot Robbie, Margot Robbie’s feet,’ Pitt said.

‘Seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes and the TSA.’

Pitt then listed a who’s who of actors that he has credited with making him better at his craft. 

‘We all know what we do is a team sport, and we elevate each other. And I got to work with some amazing people – Mr. [Al] Pacino, Mr. [Bruce] Dern, Kurt Russell, Leo, Dakota [Fanning]…You elevated my game. I certainly hope I did the same for you.’

Pitt then joked that he didn’t have to do much acting for his role in Tarantino’s film.

‘Let’s be honest. It was a difficult part. A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get on with his wife,’ Pitt said as the audience roared in laughter. 

‘It was a big stretch.’

Pitt, of course, made headline news in September 2016 when he and his then-wife, Angelina Jolie, shocked the world in announcing their divorce.

Pitt continued: ‘Listen, I love our community so much. It has been amazing to me. 

‘I have met so many amazing people along the way. Each of us in this room, you know, we know pain, we know loneliness. We bring that to the screen. 

‘We know moments of grace. We have had moments of wisdom. We bring that to the screen. 

‘We have all had a laugh at our ridiculousness. We know funny, and we bring that to the screen. And I think that is a worthy endeavor.’ 

Pitt concluded his speech by saying: ‘I have been banging away at this thing for 30 years. 

‘I think the simple math is some projects work, and some don’t, and there is no reason to belabor either one. 

‘Just get on to the next and keep telling stories. Thank you for this. 

‘My love and respect. Enjoy the evening, because tomorrow it is back to work.’  

When he was asked by the news media why he made his speech so personal, Pitt said: ‘You gotta make it personal, or it’s not grounded. It doesn’t land. 

‘I make everything personal—to a fault.’
