Brad Pitt Tears Up on Property Brothers' Latest HGTV Show


Drew and Jonathan Scott, the twins known as the Property Brothers, have seen some heartwarming success with their latest HGTV show, "Celebrity IOU." In the newest episode, the show actually brought Brad Pitt to tears.

The show has "been years in the making," the Scott brothers told People. It chronicles the efforts of A-list stars as they try to thank the unsung heroes in their lives by giving them a surprise home makeover. Stars of the series include Pitt, Michael Bublé, Viola Davis, Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson, and Jeremy Renner.

In the first episode of the series, Pitt surprises longtime friend and makeup artist Jean Black with a home makeover while she's out of town. Pitt himself can be seen using some elbow grease of his own to make the new home a reality for his friend, People reports.

The reveal of the new home was an emotional moment for all involved.

"I love that we're giving people a chance to see these big, big celebrities in a way that they've never been seen before," Drew offered. "It's seeing the emotional side of them, being with people who they've connected with in their life."

And while the big reveal left Pitt a bit misty-eyed, Drew and Jonathan Scott couldn't get over how "down to earth" the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" star really was.

"He wanted everybody to feel like he was spending some time getting to know them," Jonathan said. "And at the very end he remembered every single person's name on the production crew and on the construction crew."

"He remembered everybody and wanted to make sure that they knew how grateful he was for what was happening. He was a true gentleman in every sense of the word," Jonathan continued.

The brothers promised more tears in the coming episodes as well as some laughs and feel-good moments.

"Celebrity IOU" premieres on Monday, April 13 on HGTV.
