Brad basks in Moon­light at Golden Globes

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

BRAD Pitt made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at the Golden Globe Awards to present an in­tro­duc­tion pack­age to Moon­light on Sun­day.

The Al­lied ac­tor has stayed largely out of the pub­lic eye since split­ting from wife An­gelina Jolie in Septem­ber and was greeted with huge cheers as he stepped out to­wards the end of the tele­cast to present an in­tro­duc­tion pack­age for the Best Mo­tion Pic­ture – Drama nom­i­nee – and even­tual win­ner – Moon­light, which was pro­duced by his own com­pany, Plan B.

The 53-year-old ac­tor – who looked no­tice­ably thin – said of the Barry Jenkins-di­rected film: “It’s born of the courage of a group of ac­tors will­ing to strip to their souls and ex­press their hu­man­ism… It is Barry Jenkins’ pro­found be­lief that we all stand at the thresh­old of change and for­give­ness where we only grant ac­cep­tance and love to our­selves.”

Af­ter the end of his mar­riage to Jolie, with whom he raised six chil­dren, Pitt has made only a hand­ful of pub­lic ap­pear­ances.

He at­tended a pri­vate screen­ing of Moon­light in Novem­ber, and the next day walked the red car­pet at the Los An­ge­les pre­miere of Al­lied, where a “grate­ful” Pitt spent a lot of time sign­ing au­to­graphs for fans.
