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?!
