Lawyers for Angelina Jolie were so desperate to serve Brad Pitt with a subpoena as part of the bitter tangle of lawsuits over the exes’ French winery that they stationed process servers at the glitziest events in Hollywood in hopes of catching him off guard, Page Six has learned.
We’re told they even sent a guy to confront the “Fight Club” star with the documents at the 2022 SAG Awards in February, and insiders say they likely would have tried again at the Oscars but Pitt’s lawyers called off the chase before Hollywood’s biggest night rolled around.
Sources say that servers had been having a hard time trying to hand Pitt the papers — which makes it a legal requirement for someone to respond to a court — and were hoping he would show up at the SAG Awards as a previous winner (for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” in 2020) even though he was not nominated this year.
Sadly for them, he did not.
