Brad Pitt to Suicidal Fan: Failure Leads to Success!

by at . Comments

Brad Pitt does it all.

He acts. He has kids with Angelina Jolie. He looks handsome even with that absurd hair. And after a screening of his new film the Cary Grant Theatre in Culver City, Calif., he even helped out a distraught man at a Q&A session with fans.

According to an attendee, a 30-something struggling actor announced to Pitt, Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill and the crowd that he was considering suicide. What did Pitt say?

"It turned into a very awkward moment," the attendee says, adding that the 47-year-old actor got "choked up" as he revealed his own battles to the crowd.

But Pitt didn't flinch.

"He said, 'Look, man, life is up and down, it's a vicious cycle, but you have to go through it and deal with that,'" the observer reveals. "'You can be down, but then you come back up again, and every failure can lead to success.'"

"It was touching. As he left the theater he even stopped to talk with the guy to offer him some more words of encouragement because he was so fragile."

What more is there to say beyond: How cool is Brad Pitt?!

Allsaints-you're mistaking depression for weakness. You know not what you speak of. Most of us will deal w/ depression at one time in our lives. I hope you receive more compassion than you have here. Nothing like kicking a person when they're down.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS WEAK, STRUGGLING ACTOR, REALLY WANTS ATTENTION. HE SHOULD LOOK FOR A REAL JOB. BEING IN THE ENTERTAINMENT FIELD, HAS A LOT OF REJECTION, ATTACHED TO IT. THIS LOSER IS TOO WEAK TO HANDLE IT.

BRAD PITT IS ONE SEXXXY GUY, AND A COMPASSIONATE GUY, how can you say anything bad about this guy. I give him so much credit for an entertainer who is always giving back to those less fortunate. Only if more people were like him
