Brad Pitt Discussed 'Moonlight' At The Golden Globes; Receives Positive Response Despite Marital Issues
Brad Pitt has been on the receiving end of controversy as of late after his divorce with Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie. This, however, does not seem to be taking a toll on the worldwide heartthrob.
Having met as they filmed "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" back in 2004, the aptly named "Brangelina" became one of Hollywood's most prominent and influential couples in history. Sadly, the relationship fell apart towards the end of 2016.
According to Telegraph, Brad Pitt surprised everyone by appearing at the Golden Globes despite the divorce proceedings with Jolie, which took months off Pitt's time. The actor went center stage and spoke of his movie "Moonlight," presenting footage that he helped produce. The movie managed to bag the award for being the Best Motion Picture in the Drama category.
Written and directed by Barry Jenkins, Pitt shared what makes the film interesting. "It's born of the courage of a group of actors willing to strip to their souls and express their humanism inside mistake and misstep and misdeed. 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," he said.
Many of Hollywood's attendees greeted the actor with quite the positive standing reception due to the surprise appearance (no one from the audience knew that he would be speaking), as well as the film winning its award. One of the most noticed personalities, as per a Twitter post, is Pitt's friend, Matt Damon. One journalist named Tony Bravo from the same Telegraph report said that he looked rather well even after the breakup.
It was back in September when Jolie filed for divorce. The power couple's separation left the world in deep sadness, with Jolie finally ending the marriage due to irreconcilable differences.
