Brad Pitt, the legend himself, looks to had quite the enjoyable night at the Golden Globes. As the camera panned to him throughout the night, he had nothing but a smile on his face.
Perhaps it was due to the success that the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood had or maybe it related to Jennifer Aniston. Either way, Pitt was in a great mood, and that was further enunciated in his award acceptance speech which he won for Best Supporting Actor.
His speech was epic, to say the least. He first reached out to some of the well-known celebrities in the audience and shared how they were role models for him as he was just beginning acting. He also gave a long shout out to Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as, make a little joke about dating rumors.

He was eternally grateful for the influence that each of those actors had on his career and said he was honored to be mentioned alongside their names.

"He’s an all star, he’s a gent, and I wouldn’t be here without you, man," Pitt said.
