She’s pretty, she’s talented and has won several awards for her acting prowess. Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, the Critics Choice awards, the Independent Spirit Awards… the list is endless and she keeps adding new ones making history along the way. Her much talked about act lately though, has nothing to do with what she does on-screen. On Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, she narrated this very interesting story while there to talk about her new film Vice.
The Big Encounter
In her upcoming movie Vice, Adams plays former Second Lady Lynne Cheney and her co-star is none other than the extremely talented and transformed Christian Bale who plays the role of Dick Cheney. Plan B, Pitt’s production company happens to be one of the producers of the movie Vice. That’s why Pitt went on the set while she was shooting for the film.
As luck would have it, Adams was playing an older Cheney that day requiring her to look 70 years old. Even the suit that she wore made her look a little heavier than her usual self. What made things even worse was the fact that she was diagnosed with pink eye. And Pitt had unfortunately chosen the exact same day to drop by. So when the rest of the women were ‘skipping’ all ready with a lip gloss, she was far from looking her best version that day.
Such A ‘Pitt’y!
It’s not often that you bump into Brad Pitt. And if you do, there’s no way you are going to resist a Brad Pitt hug. Let’s be honest. He’s the hottest guy out there and can make women go weak in their knees with his irresistibly striking personality and a really dreamy smile. Perhaps it was not Amy’s lucky day. Here’s what she had to say.
I have seen him before, but every time you’re thinking it’s going to be like A River Runs Through It. You imagine yourself looking really pretty in, like, a white nightgown. But that wasn’t the case. I was in my fat suit with pink eye.
When Pitt came to greet the star, he stepped forward to hug. She, however, could not let him do so given her pink eye diagnosis. It must have been incredibly awkward and difficult. “He went to give me a hug, and I go, ‘Oh it’s happening!’ Then I realized that I can’t hug him, I have pink eye,” she said. “I was like, ‘Noooooo! No!’ So at that moment, I became the first woman in history to reject a hug from Brad Pitt.”
So when Pitt has women swooning at him, this act of hers must have left the 54-year old heartthrob wondering for sure. Apparently, Pitt was really sweet on the set and to not be able to hug him must be unthinkable. Now, we don’t know if the Guinness Book of World Records has recorded this for posterity but we sure know that she must be indeed the first woman ever to resist a Brad Pitt hug.
