Brad Pitt still embarrassed about the time make-up artist touched-up his butt: 'We're like brother and sister'
Brad Pitt recently opened up about the awkward time when his beloved makeup artist, who was like his sibling, had to touch up his buttocks for a movie.
The 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' actor, 56, opened up about his closeness to cosmetics expert Jean Black while nominating her for a surprise home renovation of Drew and Jonathan Scott's TV show 'Celebrity IOU.' He said that he felt the most comfortable working with her after having employed her for more than 40 films over his career.
However, things got awkward when the actor was preparing for a role in the movie 'Legends of the Fall' in 1994 and he required her help in evening out a tan line on his behind. He admitted that the moment was so weird for both of them that they still face difficulty talking about it after so many years, Daily Mail reported.
"She's family, we're like brother and sister. She's been that person I value so much in my life. When it comes up, we can't really look each other in the eye," he said.
As part of their show, the Scott brothers began remodeling Black's stand-alone garage in Santa Monica into a guest suite complete with bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, as well as a make-up studio and storage unit while she was away for three weeks. And Pitt was only too eager to lend a hand in their efforts.
"I love the sound of a construction site. If I'm not building, I'm dying. Just walk into a place and just see the possibilities," he said.
He also had a hand in choosing the kind of flooring that would be perfect for the house. "She's got a lot of these washed-out pewters and taupes in her place. So that would be a natural carry-through... I'm extremely tactile. In fact, I prefer the design be more in the materiality than actual decor or decoration. Seeing how the materials relate to each other and the feeling you get living amongst them," he said.
At the end, when the entire thing was done and dusted, Pitt could not be happier with the results. "It was such a s**t box, this is amazing. It's fantastic. I've been waiting so long to see something happen to this dump," he said.
Once Black returned home and discovered how her humble abode had been transformed, she was overwhelmed with emotions. "I'm really just so flabbergasted. It's really very moving and I just so appreciate it. I know Brad's generosity, it's huge. But for him to do this, it's really more than I ever thought could happen. I am so touched by this, I could really not thank you enough," she said.
Pitt shares custody of his six kids with former spouse, Angelina Jolie. Amid coronavirus lockdown, the kids are primarily staying with their mother and occasionally going over to visit their father. An insider earlier said that all six of them preferred the company of their dad over their mum.
“The kids still have a lot of fun but he insists they keep up with their studies and knows how important it is that they stay organized and on top of things, since they’re home schooled. He has them wash dishes and tidy up after themselves. But he joins in with them and makes it enjoyable, with them all helping each other,” a tipster told Star Magazine.
“All the kids go through phases of preferring their mom’s company, then their dad’s. Of course, they love and respect their mom, but now they feel much more settled in the laid-back surrounding of their dad’s house,” the insider added.
