There are many ways that a bride could get upstaged on her special day. One of her bridesmaids looks a lot sexier than she does. Her mother and mother-in-law get into a huge argument. Uncle Jack gets drunk and twerks with the flower girl. But if you're Abi Lingwood, your wedding was thoroughly and completely upstaged -- by a man. A simple man. A simple, good-looking, middle-aged man wearing a gray shirt and slacks. Nothing really special about this man except that OH YEAH, HE WAS FREAKING BRAD PITT!!
Abi, who was having her wedding reception at the Stoke Park hotel in South Buckinghamshire, England, was happily enjoying a glass of champagne (or something -- it was a wedding reception) when her new husband, Daniel, ran up to her, giddy as a school girl. He couldn't contain his excitement. Not for Abi and thoughts of their wedding night. Oh no.
It was for FREAKING BRAD PITT WHO WAS SITTING AT THE BAR!!!
The megastar happened to be in the same hotel, as he was shooting his new movie, Fury, nearby. Daniel came running (skipping? hopping? cartwheeling?) over to his new wife and told her that he had spied Brad at the bar alone having a drink and demanded that she come with him to accost said celeb in their midst.
"I thought he was joking," said Abi, who reluctantly left her wedding part to go see this SO-CALLED BRAD PITT CHARACTER.
BUT IT WAS BRAD FREAKING PITT, PEOPLE!!
Brad was nice enough to pose for a photo with the couple -- and pretty much everyone else who asked, which was everyone -- and Abi confessed that her guests caused such a commotion trying to get near the star, she was completely and totally forgotten. Said Abi:
The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting. It has gone global in BMW and has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine.
But you know Abi will never be able to watch Mr. & Mrs. Smith, World War Z, or The Curious Case Benjamin Button again without thinking, "There's the dude who stole my wedding!" Sure, it was Brad Pitt. How many brides can say Brad Pitt attended their wedding? Not even Angelina Jolie can say that.
But. Still. It's your wedding. Can't feel good to be totally invisible at your own wedding. At least Daniel didn't take off with Brad on the honeymoon. Haha. Kidding, Daniel. Congrats, man.
How would you feel if a celeb "crashed" your wedding?
