Brad Pitt Takes Late Friend Chris Cornell's Kids To Universal Studios

Sometimes a small gesture can make a difference.

In the wake of Chris Cornell’s tragic death, Brad Pitt is doing what he can to help the singer’s family.

Pitt reportedly took Cornell’s daughter, Toni, 12, and son, Christopher, 11, to Universal Studios Hollywood to enjoy some rides and perhaps take their minds off things. Images on Twitter show the three enjoying the park.

It was only a few weeks ago that we learned about the Soundgarden frontman’s untimely death, which was later ruled a suicide.

Pitt, a longtime friend of Cornell’s, attended the singer’s funeral just last week.

The pair and their families had apparently been close for years. In 2004, Pitt reportedly told Cinema Confidential that, as for his taste in music, he’s a “Chris Cornell addict.”

In fact, ET Online reports Pitt made one of his first public appearances following his split with Angelina Jolie to introduce Cornell at the ROCK4EB! charity event in Malibu, California.

According to E! News, a source said Pitt was at the park “for the kids to have a good time.” He seemed “accommodating” and “thankful to everybody” at the attractions for their help.

The source added that Pitt appeared “intent on making sure the kids were happy.”

For kids dealing with an unthinkable tragedy, sometimes a small gesture can make all the difference.
