Brad Pitt is one of the biggest winners of this awards season. But it hasn't made him shred his humility, and he showed it at the just concluded Academy Awards.
Before the end of the Oscars, the "Troy" star walked over to two of Hollywood great stars, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. In a video clip shared by Ramin Setoodeh on Twitter, the trio stood conversing beside the stage.

Although their conversation got drowned in background noise, Wilson was having a good time as she laughed at something Pitt said. Half-way through the video, Bong Joon-ho of "Parasite" joined the group.
The "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" actor embraced the Korean filmmaker as the actress raised her phone for a snap. The post was captioned,
"At last commercial, Brad Pitt was talking to Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson and then Bong Joon-ho walked over to say hi. #Oscars."
Pitt was one of the winners of the night. He walked away with his very first Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of "Cliff Booth" in the Quentin Tarantino era movie, "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood."
The actor starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, who portrayed "Rick Dalton." The two actors became friends while on set, and the Oscar winner said on the red carpet that working with the "Titanic" star was easy.
The actor dropped down for some pushups with a sergeant of the US army.
He added that it was great and went as far as acknowledging his co-star during his acceptance speech. Pitt also dedicated his award to his children.
The "Ad Astra" star has six children — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox — whom he shares with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. Referring to them, he said,
"… And to my kids who color everything I do, I adore you."
Pitt had his win celebrated by some of his famous friends, including Ellen DeGeneres. She wrote on Twitter that she is happy for her friend.
The TV host described it as an incredible win, and also took a moment to gush about his hair. The two have been friends for a long time.
The "Toy Story 4" star holds a special relationship with the military. He is an honorary member of the Army Rangers Hall of Fame for his portrayal of a captain in the Oscars-winning '99 movie, "Saving Private Ryan."
