Brad Pitt Helps Suicidal Fan At Screening Of His Film By Quoting The Little Book Of Calm
HOLLYWOOD is full of idiots and simpletons, but Brad Pitt seems like a good enough chap. And that idea was only furthered when he had some supportive words for a suicidal fan following a special screening of his new movie, Moneyball.
Was the fan suicidal because ‘Moneyball’ is so gaspingly dreadful?
At the Q&A session, Pitt heard how an aspiring actor had been struggling with suicidal thoughts earlier in the day and that, unfathomably, the baseball biopic gave him “a renewed sense of hope”.
A source told USmagazine.com:
“Brad said ‘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’.
“Brad handled the situation really well in front of several hundred people – it was a difficult moment that shocked everyone.”
Or, if you prefer, he sounded a little too much like the Little Book Of Calm for our liking.
Another insider added:
“It was a touching moment. As he left he even stopped to talk with the guy to offer him some more words of encouragement because he was obviously fragile.”
So there you have it. Know a suicidal divorcee? Give them a baseball film for Christmas and they’ll be fine. Unless it’s that one about angels playing for that baseball team. The offer of celestial sports may be too much to resist.
