New bride Abi Lingwood was in for a shock over the weekend, when she got an unexpected visit from Brad Pitt!
Brad Pitt is currently in London where he’s filming the new World War II movie, ‘Fury.’ He was spotted enjoying a drink at the bar of the Maidenhead hotel by Abi’s groom, Daniel. Daniel asked Brad, 49, if he wouldn’t mind coming by and meeting his new wife, and pose for a quick picture.
Abi told local newspaper the Maidenhead Advertiser: “My husband said to me Brad Pitt was at the bar and you have got to come with me so he dragged me across the hotel. I thought he was joking.”
Brad happily agreed. “He said congratulations and I hope you have had a great day and let’s have a picture. And he said I looked nice. He was really nice.”
Turns out Brad’s appearance at the hotel may have upstaged her own wedding. Brad’s appearance caused such a stir at the wedding that he eventually had to go back up to his room. “The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting. It has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine.”
In the picture above we’re getting our first look at Brad’s shorter hair. He cut his long locks in order to play the role of a soldier who is part of a five-man crew of a tank named Fury during the final weeks of World War II. The crew of the tank take on a desperate German division facing an almost hopeless predicament.
He is starring alongside big name actors including Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal in the film, which is scheduled for release in November 2014.
