Lena Dunham Just Explained That Viral Kissing Photo of Her With Brad Pitt
In a new virtual interview that she did with Andy Cohen, Lena Dunham addressed that viral kissing photo she took with Brad Pitt last July at the London premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just take a look at the above pic. While a group of people were posing on the red carpet, Dunham and Pitt greeted each other with what looked like a kiss on the cheek. Of course, cameras captured the exchange, and an “awkward” snap of the two of them soon went viral. Dunham talked about the whole situation with Cohen during an at-home episode of Watch What Happens Live on May 11.
“I don’t know if you remember, there was a sort of awkward photo taken of the two of us,” she said, according to Entertainment Tonight. “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 because he knew I felt nervous, 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.”
Dunham worked with Pitt on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and has the nicest things to say about him. “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,” she also told Cohen, per ET. “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. 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?’ …He’s a truly kind person who can read the room.”
