At the 26th annual Screen Actors Guild awards on Sunday night, Pitt won the best supporting actor in a movie award for his role in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, and he took the opportunity to a) joke about being on Tinder, and b) lightheartedly reference the rumors about director Quentin Tarantino’s love of feet. Read the full text of Pitt’s acceptance speech below:
“I’m going to add this to my Tinder profile. Thank you, my brothers, my sisters, this means so much—more than I can possibly fathom. I want you to know I watch everything, I watch you all, and the work has been mesmerizing, so I thank you. I want to thank my costars, Leo, Margot Robbie, Margot Robbie’s feet, Margaret Qualley’s feet, Dakota Fanning’s feet…seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA.
Now, we all know what we do is a team sport and we elevate each other, and I got to work with some amazing, amazing people. Mr. Pacino, Mr. Dern, Kurt Russell, Leo, Dakota, Tim…where are you guys? Ms. Butters, a bunch of the new generation, Margaret Qualley, Austin Butler. You all elevated my game, and I hope I did the same for you. Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part. Guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, and doesn’t get on with his wife? It was a big stretch.”
Pitt has emerged as the unofficial hero of this awards season, and tonight he proved he’s got comedy chops to boot. It’s hard to imagine he’d actually favor Tinder over the elite dating app Raya, but all we’re saying is, we’d swipe right.
