Elvira Gave Brad Pitt Some Free Good Press By Saying That He Let An Elderly Neighbor Live Rent-Free On His Estate

Brad Pitt recently sold his Los Angeles compound of 30 years for $40 million. It was the home base for Brad, Angelina Jolie, and their child army. With this $40 million sale also comes an unexpected gift, some free good press from Cassandra Peterson, aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, who once owned the house Brad turned into a compound. She says Brad was a lovely man, as she moved into another nearby house and became his neighbor. And while Brad was buying up all the houses around him, he allowed an elderly man to live on his property for free until the man’s death. Aww! And you know Brad really meant it. Because, as we know from his shitty Make It Right homes in New Orleans, if Brad wanted someone with health issues out of the house, he allegedly knows how to do it.

Brad bought Elvira’s mansion in 1994 for $1.7 million. Elvira says that there were around 22 homes surrounding the property. And throughout the years, Brad bought a surrounding house every time one came up for sale, creating a 1.9-acre compound. And now Elvira is talking to People about the sale of the estate and brought up how sweetheart Brad bought the home of a widower in his early-90s. Brad let the man live there until his death. Well, the man lived to 105.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Peterson opened up about how she sold her home to Pitt, became his longtime neighbor, and how the actor ended up with an unexpected elderly tenant on the property.

“He was very, very kind to the husband. His wife passed away and the husband, John, lived there,” explained Peterson. “I know that Brad allowed him to live there without paying anything until he died.”

The arrangement went on a bit longer than it might have, she notes: “It was kind of funny because John lived to be 105.”

The actress joked that John “just kept living forever,” adding, “I imagine Brad was thinking well, you know, he can live there till he dies, which might be any minute now.”

The good press kept on rolling, as Elvira says that Brad was “always kind and sweet,” and she even says she one time saw him getting Fight Club fit in the late nineties while walking her dog.

“I go past Brad’s garage and he’s in there wearing only sweatpants. He’s got on boxing gloves and he is punching a bag. I swear I almost fainted.”

“I remember he goes, “Hey, how are you?” and I’m like, “Huh?” I couldn’t talk. I was turning red. I felt like I was fainting,” she continues. “He’s just so stunningly, stunningly handsome‚Äďand nice, to top it off.”

Welp, if the Mistress of Evil is giving good press to Brad Pitt, then there’s only really one good response to this. Angelina Jolie needs to get dressed up as Maleficent and remind us about his airplane meltdown again.
