Brad Pitt Tears Up During Emotional Speech After Finally Winning An Oscar
From his are-they-aren't-they reunion with Jennifer Anniston to his strangely sexy mullet, we've never felt more invested in Brad Pitt - and watching him tear up during his acceptance speech at the Oscars gave us all the feels.
Taking to the stand to accept his award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as stunt double Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Brad was visibly emotional.
He took time to thank his co-star Leonardio DiCaprio, joking: "Leo, I'll ride on your coattails any day, man. The view's fantastic." Ah, can you feel the bromance?
Brad - who has previously been nominated for a total of seven Oscars, winning one (so far) - also gave a heartfelt shout-out to his six children, saying: "This is for my kids, who colour everything I did. I adore you."
It was while talking about his childhood, though, that Brad got choked up on nostalgia.
Reminiscing about being taken by his parents to see golden era Hollywood movies, the actor said: "I'm a bit gobsmacked. I'm not one to look back, but this has made me do so.
"I'm thinking of my folks taking me to the drive-in to see Butch and Sundance and loading up my car and moving out here, to Geena [Davis] and Ridley [Scott] giving me my first shot, to all of all the wonderful people I've met along the way," continued Brad, his voice catching.
The A-lister also used his speech as an opportunity to get political.
"They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week," he said, in a reference to Donald Trump's impeachment proceedings.
"I'm thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing," jokes Brad, getting a laugh from Tarantino.
Rounding off his emotional speech, the actor cracked a smile and said: "Once upon a time in Hollywood, ain't that the truth..."
Oh Brad, what a closing line. Right, back to googling pictures of that oddly alluring mullet.
