Ray Donovan Star Kerris Dorsey on Brad Pitt's Sweet Surprise

Posted on

Thorpe/Splash News

Kerris Dorsey has worked with several of Hollywood’s most famous dads.

She currently plays Liev Schreiber‘s daughter on Ray Donovan and got her start as Joaquin Phoenix‘s little one in Walk the Line.

But the actress says it was Brad Pitt, who played her father in Moneyball, who gave her some important fatherly advice.

“Never lose who you are [because of your success],” is a lesson she says the superstar taught her and something he demonstrates in his own life. “He’s got a very kind soul. He cares so much about his family.”

Besides words of wisdom, Pitt also gave her a special parting gift.

Says Dorsey, “He sent me the guitar I play in the film.”
