Pitt was at the ceremony to present the award for the Best Supporting Actress, following his win in the Best Supporting Actor category for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” last year. After announcing “Minari”s Yuh-Jung Youn as the winner, Pitt and the actress shared a hilarious onstage moment.
“Mr. Brad Pitt… finally. Nice to meet you,” she said, prompting the audience to laugh. Pitt, who produced the film, smiled and later helped her off the stage.
After her speech, Youn headed backstage where she marvelled over meeting Pitt and shared more details about their conversation.
“I couldn’t believe he was leading to me when he announced my name, and so, then maybe I just blacked out for a couple seconds or so. Or should I say, ‘Where am I?’ Or something like that,” she said. “…I’m still not myself, so don’t ask me too many questions!”
