Brad Pitt Was Seen Delivering Food To Struggling People In Los Angeles
Hollywood actor Brad Pitt went on a special trip last week to help feed people in need during the Covid crisis.
In this series of heartwarming photos obtained by DailyMail, Brad, 56, can be seen unloading boxes of food for struggling people in LA.
Many people went in line to receive food from a truck that the actor himself operated for a number of hours.
Funnily enough, a lot of people weren’t even aware of his presence due to his casual clothing and the protective mask he was wearing.
Apart from hugging and chatting with people, Brad even had a cool moment with one of his best buddies – British artist Thomas Houseago – who came to give a helping hand.
One eyewitness said:
‘Brad really did seem like a hero, the man did not stop all day. Just seeing him driving a big truck in South Central LA during Covid times was in itself amazing.
‘He was completely committed, you could see it wasn’t a case of him turning up and showing his face,’ the person added.
‘He had his gloves on and he was involved as much and probably more than anyone else there.
‘His heart was in it and it was just a hats-off moment. It seemed like it was the real Brad Pitt, which we don’t really ever get to see.
‘He was there between three and four hours and he would only stop every hour or so to have a quick three-minute break to smoke a cigarette and then he was back at it.’
‘He was grabbing more boxes than anyone there and then carrying probably six boxes at a time on a cart.’
‘He did that non-stop and towards the end when all the boxes had been unloaded he was handing them out to the people in line.
‘There was zero swagger, when he went out to hand over boxes to the crowds he had his mask on. Most people in the crowd probably didn’t know who he was.
‘At the end he took his mask off when he was chatting to all of the volunteers at the back of the truck after those lining up for food had gone.
‘It wasn’t about glory, you could see he was doing it for self-satisfaction. It really felt like he was in his element.’
Even though Brad has had phenomenal success in his career for the past year, winning an Oscar and a Golden Globe, he’s been struggling in his personal life.
He has found himself in an ugly court battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie for custody of their 6 kids.
And a month ago it was reported that his relationship with 27-year-old Nicole Poturalski has come to an end.
But Brad seemed to be completely happy with an unknown lady in the back of his vehicle.
Our person said:
‘Brad went into a local coffee shop and brought out drinks with the brunette lady and they sat on the back of the truck Brad had arrived in with the groceries.
‘They sat there probably for about 20 minutes, laughing and chatting while he had another cigarette and they sipped at their drinks.
‘She appeared to be another volunteer and they were both completely relaxed.
‘It was Brad Pitt like you’ve never seen him, with his guard totally down, laughing, joking and chatting. He was interested and didn’t seem to have a care in the world.
‘The whole time Brad just seemed beyond happy and was constantly dancing around and joking with people,’ they added.
‘At one point he went into the front of the truck and brought out a portable speaker, hooked it up to his iPhone and blasted upbeat tunes.
‘He ate a really basic meal of what seemed to be scrambled eggs and mashed potato using a plastic knife and fork out of a polystyrene to-go container that he got from the coffee shop.’
And while Brad was having a great sunny day among wonderful people, it got even better when his friend Thomas Houseago arrived.
The two have been buddies for years and went to the Venice Biennale art exhibition together last year.
‘Brad was clearly elated to see Thomas’, the eyewitness said.
‘He seemed surprised that he had turned up, as if Brad was not expecting him to be there. They had an emotional ‘hello’ and a long, long hug and after that Brad pulled him in for another hug.
‘Brad had already been there at least an hour and a half and then out of the blue this guy started walking across the car park, they locked eyes and Brad went straight over.
‘It was obvious that they are very, very good friends. They chatted for at least half an hour and Thomas stayed after Brad left.’
