Brad Pitt and his girlfriend Ines de Ramon attended the Santa Barbara International Film Festival together on Thursday. Pitt was there to honor his friend, Bradley Cooper, with the outstanding performer of the year award. Photos show the couple sitting behind Cooper and his costar Carey Mulligan. Pitt wore a dark-brown suit while de Ramon stunned in a high-neck teal halter dress.
According to a source, Pitt was low-key during the event and skipped the red carpet. However, when he took the stage to present the award to Cooper, the crowd was extremely excited. Pitt was in good spirits and even poked fun at his friend, joking that he was just there for a free trip to Santa Barbara.
Pitt and de Ramon have been dating since November 2022, and they spent his 60th birthday together in December. Sources say that the actor seems more relaxed and he and de Ramon are very comfortable together.
During his speech, Pitt praised Cooper's talent and love for the human experience. He expressed his hope for Cooper's success at the upcoming Academy Awards, where his film Maestro is nominated for seven Oscars. Pitt called Cooper "the one and only Bradley" and joked about his eagerness for a Philadelphia Eagles fan to win.
Cooper jokingly responded to Pitt's comments as he accepted the award.
