Brad Pitt gave a life-changing pep talk to a suicidal stranger at a “Moneyball” screening earlier this week. During the Q&A session, a struggling actor stood up and told the cast that he was having suicidal thoughts in his car before the screening, but that he felt “a renewed sense of hope” after seeing the film.
Pitt’s response was spot-on: “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.”
Attendees also observed Brad Pitt speaking with the actor alone after the event, possibly offering additional encouragement. What do you think of Pitt’s response?
