This past Sunday, things got a bit odd following a screening of 'Moneyball' in California. During a Q&A session featuring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, a man got up to the microphone and explained to Pitt that he was contemplating suicide. After the room had fallen silent, Pitt explained to the man that "things are cyclical." Continued the star: "When you're up you're up, and when you're down you're down." Pitt went on to talk about films that have changed his life and affected him positively. There is a low-quality video of the exchange, which you can watch below (it starts at the 42-second mark). After the Q&A, Pitt apparently approached the man and spoke with him some more.
On Tuesday, Pitt won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor for his role in 'Moneyball.' The film follows Brad as Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane.
