Brad basks in Moonlight at Golden Globes
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.
