Ever wonder how much cash a Hollywood A-lister like Brad Pitt carries in his wallet? Apparently, $1,100 big ones.
The exact amount has been revealed not because Pitt was bragging — that's not his style — but because he used it in his latest act of kindness on Thanksgiving Day. According to People, Pitt donated all the money in his wallet, which happened to be $1,100, to a fundraiser for the U.K.'s Southampton General Hospital neonatal unit. The BBC reported that Pitt made the donation when a woman named Tricia Wilson-Hughes was soliciting donations from the crew of Pitt's film "Wold War Z," which was filming in Dorset near a gift shop where Hughes works. Hughes approached Pitt's bodyguard for a contribution, and was stunned when he returned with Pitt's sizeable offering a few minutes later.
"I couldn't believe it, I was completely dumbstruck," Hughes said. "He said if he had more he would have given it. I said honestly that is more than enough, but if he wants to do anything in the future that is absolutely fine. You hear negative stories about A-listers but I won't hear a wrong word against him, I am in awe of him."
Hughes' friend, Karley Gallagher, the 23-year-old mother of the little boy who inspired Hughes' efforts, explained that she was moved by Pitt's generosity.
