Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt revealed his philanthropist side once again. The actor recently spent several hours distributing cartons of groceries to needy families in Los Angeles. 

The Troy actor brought these food items in a truck, which he drove himself. Incidentally, this was the first time the Hollywood heartthrob was snapped after the news of his reported split from Nicole Poturalski, a German model, became public.

In this latest set of pictures, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star was seen in a new avatar as he handed over grocery boxes in South Central Los Angeles. Although people flocked in large numbers to get their food items, they were hardly aware that it was Pitt himself who was distributing those goodies as his face was covered with a mask.

The actor was taking a break in between unloading the boxes and was even seen enjoying a smoke and chatting with a mystery brunette. He looked happy and light-hearted in the pictures. 

People felt as if he was a real-life hero while the actor was careful about not violating social distancing rules amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He not only had a protective mask to cover his face but also wore gloves to be careful.  

Pitt was distributing groceries for around three to four hours, and he only took a short cigarette break in between. The actor was as involved as the other volunteers and carried multiple boxes at a time. 

He took his face mask off towards the end while speaking to his team of volunteers (via Daily Mail). They chatted after all the people who gathered there to get food items went away. 

The actor tasted incredible success in his acting career this year and even bagged a Golden Globe and an Oscar in the best supporting actor category. However, his personal life has not been so smooth.

Brad Pitt and his former wife Angelina Jolie are engaged in a bitter custody battle, which has been going on for four years now. Even though they have been legally declared as single, their divorce proceedings are yet to be finalized. 

Pitt had an edge lately when Angie’s request to remove their judge John W. Ouderkirk was rejected in a recent ruling. Ouderkirk is the same judge who got them married in their French chateau in 2014 (via People Magazine).

Meanwhile, post his reported split with Poturalski, the actor visited his former wife’s home. He spent around 90 minutes at Jolie’s residence, but there is no clarity on what he could have discussed with Angie. 

Reports have it that Brad Pitt wants to end all the bitterness that has popped up during their custody battle and wants peace for their kids (Pinkvilla reports).
