Amongst the estimated 175,000 campers and concert-goers at the Glastonbury Festival this year was one special celebrity guest: Oscar winner Brad Pitt.

The 53-year-old actor, who was recently fired from his job as weatherman on Comedy Central’s The Jim Jefferies Show, swung by the five-day performing arts festival in England — snapping pictures with some of the performing musicians.

He even watched on from the side of the stage, NME reported, as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn delivered a rousing speech on Saturday that tackled unity, racism, education, child poverty and social inequality.

Musician Chris Simmons shared a selfie of he and Pitt to his Instagram page — which was photobombed by another VIP: Bradley Cooper.

“When you get your photo with Brad Pitt photobombed by Bradley Cooper!” he wrote in the pic’s caption, showing the four-time Oscar nominee smiling in the background.

British rock duo Royal Blood also snapped a shot with Pitt, joking that he had been a concert winner to a recent competition they held.

“Congratulations to our competition winner – William Bradley Pitt,” they joked in their caption.
