Brad Pitt Renovates Makeup Artist’s Studio on HGTV Debut (Is There Nothing This Guy Can’t Do?)

We already think Brad Pitt is one of the coolest and most stylish actors around, but leave it to him to make us admire him even more. In his latest envious endeavor, he teamed up with HGTV’s Property Brothers to do the ultimate good deed for his longtime makeup artist, Jean Black. In the series debut of Celebrity IOU, a show that features celebrities gifting home makeovers to their nearest and dearest, Pitt helped transform Black’s detached garage into a gorgeous guest house with a makeup studio and bathroom.

“It was such a shitbox…I’ve been waiting so long to see something happen to this dump,” Pitt said on the episode. “I love the sound of a construction site. If I’m not building, I’m dying. [I] just walk into a place and just see the possibilities.”

Pitt was hands-on in the demolition phase of the renovation and was filmed slinging a sledgehammer, donning safety goggles and all. He also reportedly made it a point to learn everyone’s names on the production and construction crews. When the finished remodel was revealed, Pitt choked back tears about the personal touches therein, including a framed photograph of Black’s deceased parents.

“I know Brad’s generosity, it’s huge,” said Black, who has known Pitt for around 30 years. “But for him to do this, it’s really more than I ever thought could happen. I am so touched by this, I could really not thank you enough. I love you, Brad.” She’s not alone in that sentiment. Damn it, Brad, once again you’ve set the bar for a true gentleman even higher than we thought it could go.
