Earlier this year, Brad Pitt starred in a little movie called Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, a Quentin Tarantino film in which he shared time on screen with Girls actress Lena Dunham. Later at an event, the two were chummy and she was even seen kissing the actor, albeit rather awkwardly, at a Once event. Now Dunham has explained what really happened at the premiere event.
Speaking to Andy Cohen on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live the oft-open actress revealed what seriously happened with Brad Pitt, noting that the awkward photo was just a bad angle and that she was not trying to “accost” the actor fellow Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio refers to as “Lover.” Per Lena Dunham.
Some of us are photogenic and some of us are not. I don’t know about you, but if we were still in the era of printing photos, I’d have a barrelful of awkward photos readily available for anyone who’d want to Tweet about ‘em. I’d imagine it’s probably worse when you are meeting someone on the red carpet and there are professional photogs clicking images of you by the second. Some of those are bound to be terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad photos.
That didn’t stop people from making blunt comments about the moment however, which is why we’re still talking about it so many months later.
Lena Dunham went on to tell Andy Cohen that Brad Pitt recognized she was super nervous around him and went above and beyond to be kind to her later that evening during the Once promotional. She even said he gave her a ring, which she was still wearing in the interview (doubly amusing given another ring that happened to come up during the interview was thrown by Dunham into the compost pile).
So, it sounds like awkward kiss or no awkward kiss, Brad Pitt and Lena Dunham get along just fine and there’s really nothing to see in the images. What is worth seeing is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood if you haven’t already. The movie’s currently available on DVD, Digital and Blu-ray and I can promise does not feature any awkward Lena Dunham or Brad Pitt kisses.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
