Everyone predicted that Brad Pitt would take home a trophy at the SAG Awards after an undefeated award season run, but no one was ready for his wild acceptance speech ... most of all Jennifer Aniston.
The actor picked up the award for Outstanding Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture at the 26th annual ceremony on Sunday night for his career-best performance in “Once Upon a Time in ... Hollywood” as over-the-hill stunt performer Cliff Booth.
After accepting the award from presenter Jennifer Garner, Pitt cracked the first of many jokes, telling the crowd, “I got to add this to my Tinder profile.”
He went on to thank his fellow nominees and co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and “Margot Robbie’s feet,” referencing director Quentin Tarantino’s long-established cinematic fetish.
“Margaret Qualley’s feet, Dakota Fanning’s feet,” he continued. “Seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA.”
Pitt went onto poke fun at himself by remarking that the character is a guy “who gets high, takes off his shirt and doesn’t get along with his wife.”
“Big stretch,” he added to uproarious laughter from the audience.
That’s when a cameraperson, who should absolutely get a raise, cut to Jennifer Aniston, who won an award later in the evening for her performance in “The Morning Show.”
And let’s just say her expression spoke volumes, as Aniston uncomfortably clapped as the camera lingered on her.
The former couple, who were married from 2000 to 2005, have been dodging each other on the red carpet all award season long.
They are, however, reportedly on good terms, with Pitt attending Aniston’s Christmas party last month.
