According to an attendee, a 30-something aspiring actor told Pitt and co-star Jonah Hill that he was battling suicidal thoughts earlier that day, but the baseball biopic gave him "a renewed sense of hope." The source tells the mag it was an awkward moment, but Pitt wasn't fazed. Pitt reportedly told the fan, "Look, man, life is up and down, it's a vicious cycle, but you have to go through it and deal with that. You can be down, but then you come back up again, and every failure can lead to success."

Another insider at the event told the mag, "It was a touching moment. As he left the theatre he even stopped to talk with the guy to offer him some more words of encouragement because he was obviously fragile."
