Brad Pitt Actually Mentioned His Children in His Oscars Acceptance Speech

It’s no secret that 2019 was the year of Brad Pitt, and TBH, I did not complain one bit about it. He made headlines for giving us all hope that a possible Jennifer Aniston reunion could be in the cards, and on top of that, did you see him in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood??? He was total perfection.

So naturally, the Academy decided to award Brad for his stellar performance in the film— in which he starred alongside eternal bae, Leonardo DiCaprio—for his role as Cliff Booth. And when he took the stage to accept the Oscar, Brad actually mentioned his kids in his speech! Interesting, considering that he intentionally didn’t mention them in his Golden Globes speech in January.

Here’s what Brad said tonight:

Then, Brad got a little sentimental, thanking his kids at the end of the speech, saying, “This is for my kids, who color everything I do. I adore you.”

This is kind of a big deal considering that Brad chooses to “never mention them [his kids] publicly and wants it to remain that way” because “he knows simply acknowledging his children in a speech could attract unwanted attention” to them, a source told TMZ after the Golden Globes. The source also added that Brad “has never used his kids as a publicity tool…as those around him feel his ex Angelina Jolie has at times.”

So uh…not sure what inspired the change of heart, but it’s sweet for Brad to give them a mention this time around!
