Taking that chance! Lena Dunham went for it when she was given the chance to lock lips with Brad Pitt on the red carpet for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s London premiere on Tuesday, July 30 — and no one was more surprised than he was!
The bold interaction clearly caught the actor, 55, off guard but he rolled with it as best he could. The former Girls star, 33, bee-lined towards Pitt once cast photos were finished and planted an awkward kiss on the Oscar winner before he turned his head away. The duo were surrounded by costars Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Damian Lewis and director Quentin Tarantino.
The two share scenes together in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in which Pitt plays stunt actor Cliff Booth and Dunham portrays one of Charles Manson’s cult members.
The Golden Globe winner was definitely feeling herself at the premiere — wearing a bronze, sequined dress adorned with multicolored Marabou feathers — documenting the ensemble on her Instagram and captioning it: “She rose like a phoenix from the ashes, bitches… and ended up in London. 💥🔥🧡 #onceuponatimeinhollywood.”
Given her history of bold antics, it’s no surprise that this wasn’t the first time she attempted to get a rise out of Pitt. On a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! last October, she recounted the time she flashed the superstar her underwear between takes on the film. “Someone asked ‘what’s a Kewpie doll? and I said, ‘I can show you, I have one right here on my side.’ Skirt comes up! If you’ve got it illustrated on your body, who are you not to show them?,” she asked Jimmy Kimmel, before noting that her publicist expressly asked that she not reenact the moment on the late night show.
The admiration is a two-way street. Pitt attended the Tiny Furniture director’s birthday party this past May, and was among the smiling guests pictured hugging the feted actress on her Instagram feed. Dunham captioned the pics: “This year I’m… wait for it… happy. And so grateful for where I am, who I am, and everyone who has helped me on my journey to health & sobriety.”
