Most recently, Brad Pitt made an appearance at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to accept the Maltin Modern Master Award. Throughout the sold-out award ceremony, Pitt discussed at length what it was like to act in hit films like “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” “Se7en,” “Fight Club,” “Inglorious Basterds,” “Moneyball” and “Thelma and Louise,” just to name a few. Although Pitt displayed himself as quite the jokester during his time on stage with interviewer Leonard Maltin, it’s clear the famed actor still remains humble despite his remarkable success in the film industry.

“I feel so fortunate for all the amazing people that I’ve been able to work with that have taught me so much, that have touched my life,” Pitt said as he accepted his award, “I feel blessed.”
