Lena Dunham Recalls The Viral Brad Pitt Moment on the Red Carpet

Lena Dunham is speaking about that awkward Brad Pitt moment in 2019 when she seemed to try to kiss on him on the red carpet.

“I don’t know if you remember there was a sort of awkward photo taken of the two of us,” she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “Well, the way the internet read it was I had somehow physically accosted him causing him a great deal of stress … I would never force a kiss on Brad Pitt. I respect him far too much as an artist and a friend.”

Later that night, she said Brad knew she was nervous so he “took me into a room and we secretly ate pizza and I told him I like his ring and he gave it to me.”

She added, “And I wear it and every time I wear it, something amazing happens.”

“I actually had the pleasure of knowing him a little bit previously, so I wasn’t going in totally blind,” she said of costarring with him in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. “But when I showed up to set, I didn’t have some major megastar part, I was in a really great ensemble of girls so, I didn’t expect… I expected, you know, a friendly hello from Brad. And I think what happened was the best thing that’s maybe ever happened to me.”

“He was doing a scene where he was parking a car and he’s supposed to get out and look around and he looked around and saw me at the edge of frame and came over and picked me up and spun me around,” she recalled. “And it was like … it was like in one of those movies where the nerd shows up at the prom and the hottest guy at school is like, ‘Would you care to dance?’”
