On Sunday in Culver City, CA, a struggling actor sat in his car before a screening of Moneyball and contemplated killing himself. (Note: Contemplating killing yourself before seeing a Brad Pitt movie is a natural reaction. Kidding.) The man ignored those bad thoughts and went into the theater. While watching the movie, the man felt a renewed sense of hope hug away his suicidal thoughts. During a Q&A with Brad and Jonah Hill afterward, the man brought up his story and the hobo saint sprinkled his words of wisdom all over the crowd. According to UsWeekly and an audience member, this is the sermon that floated out of Brad’s bong hole:
“Look, man, life is up and down, it’s a vicious cycle, but you have to go through it and deal with that. You can be down, but then you come back up again, and every failure can lead to success.”
After the Q&A, Brad found the man in the audience and gave him more words of encouragement. The source added, “Brad handled the situation really well in front of several hundred people — it was a difficult moment that shocked everyone.”
Aaaaaand there’s another one to add to the “Brad Pitt Saves Lives” file. That being said, if bravely stood up in front of dozens of people to tell Brad Pitt that I’m depressed and thinking of suicide, I’d expect him to either: a) adopt me on the spot; or b) give me the blunt in his pocket. That’s what Jesus would do. Give you a blunt when you’re down.
