Imagine having just gotten married and none other than Brad Pitt is sitting in the hotel bar where you’re hosting your reception. Such was the case for 28-year-old new bride Abi Lingwood and husband Daniel.
Pitt is in England filming “Fury,” a WWII thriller, and he happened to be staying at the Stoke Park Hotel this past weekend. When Daniel told Abi that Pitt was in the bar, she tells the Maidenhead Advertiser that she thought her hubby was joking.
But he was not. Pitt posed for a picture with the couple and Lingwood says he wished them congratulations and that he hoped they had a great day.
“And he said I looked nice,” says Abi. “He was really nice.”
Pitt and the people he was with also went to say hello to the bride’s girlfriends, who were all in a tizzy once they heard Abi had met him downstairs. Abi adds that the news has become quite the office talk at BMW, where she works.
“[It] has become more of a talking point than my wedding,” says Abi. “But that is fine.”
