Regina King presented the Best Supporting Actor Oscar last night—and ended up having a really sweet moment with the award’s winner Brad Pitt after. The two were ecstatic on stage:
And backstage, where they got emotional and affectionate posing together. The photos were so pure:
There were multiple cheek kisses so:
Pitt and King have professional ties: Pitt’s production company Plan B worked on the film If Beale Street Could Talk, which King starred in. Her work in the film won her Best Supporting Actress in 2019…which was the reason she was presenting the Best Supporting Actor Award to Pitt in 2020. The two are both publicly single too, for whatever that’s worth.
On stage during his acceptance speech, Pitt dedicated the award—his first acting Oscar—to his six children with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie.“Once upon a time in Hollywood, ain’t that’s the truth,” Pitt said as he finished his speech, playing off the title of the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that he got his Oscar for. “And to my kids, who color everything I do, I love you.”
In the press room following his win, Pitt told reporters what advice he’d give his kids if they wanted to be actors. “We can have that conversation once they’re 18,” he started. “Listen, I want them to follow their bliss, follow their passions, whatever they’re most interested in. It’s about guiding as you can, but they get to try everything on and try what their passion is. So, sure, why not?”
