Warning! The following contains spoilers for the premiere of HGTV's Celebrity IOU. Read at your own risk!
The Property Brothers are no strangers to changing lives through home renovation, but it looks like the act of doing so had quite the affect on their celebrity guest. Celebrity IOU had Brad Pitt on the show, and the actor helped a dear friend with a home renovation in what was a supremely emotional episode.
Brad Pitt appeared on Celebrity IOU to help out his longtime makeup artist Jean Black. Check out a brief clip from the episode, and Pitt getting down and dirty with The Property Brothers in order to make a great thing happen for Black.
For those that missed the premiere of Celebrity IOU, this was not a complete home renovation. Pitt's makeup artist had a detached garage in desperate need of a makeover, and the boys wanted to change it to something special. With the help of Drew and Jonathan Scott, Brad Pitt got to work knocking down walls and helped convert the space into a guest house in a relatively short time. The episode showed Pitt working right alongside the brothers, which shows that the A-lister was not above getting his hands dirty for a good cause.
As is often the case on HGTV renovation shows, the end result was astounding. Brad Pitt and The Property Brothers showed Celebrity IOU is about more than star-power with this renovation. What was once a run of the mill garage has been transformed into a living space that most any home owner would love to see added on to their own space!
In the episode, Brad Pitt described his relationship with makeup artist Jean Black as "like family." The two have been working together for decades, and she's provided the makeup for his roles in several iconic films over the course of his career. This included putting makeup on his butt for the 1994 movie Legends of the Fall, which Pitt mentioned in the episode. Hey, when someone's doing makeup in places like that, the least you can do is give them a partial home renovation!
Brad Pitt's act of kindness isn't unique on this new series, as Celebrity IOU will feature many celebrities helping out the heroes of their lives. Other celebrities slated to appear include Viola Davis, Melissa McCarthy, Jeremy Renner, Michael Bublé, and Rebel Wilson. As previously mentioned, each celebrity is paired with The Property Brothers stars Jonathan and Drew Scott, who likely make sure these celebrities aren't just wildly swinging a hammer in an effort to help those closest to them in life.
Celebrity IOU airs on HGTV Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend to stay up to date on all new shows headed to television, and for a look at what's happening in the world of movies, as well.
