Which ‘Downton Abbey’ star kissed Brad Pitt?

The Downton Abbey movie just came out in theaters, so to celebrate, Kelly Clarkson invited the cast onto her show for a tea party game she calls “Sip it and Spill it.” Basically, it’s a very classy version of Never Have I Ever with tea instead of beer.

Clarkson started the game by admitting she’s locked herself in the bathroom with a glass of wine because she just needed a minute to herself, away from the kids. Reasonable. Most parents can probably understand that. 

But the most interesting reveal of the game came when Elizabeth McGovern admitted to “snogging” Pitt. Clarkson had to clarify for the American audience, “Snogged means kissed, right?” to which the rest of the table nodded.

McGovern seemed a bit embarrassed. She hid her face for a moment before explaining how the kiss came about. 

How did the kiss between Brad Pitt and Elizabeth McGovern happen?

The kiss happened back in 1994 when Pitt and McGovern co-starred in the indie film The Favor. A rom-com which tells the story of a woman who can’t stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend. Because she’s married and doesn’t want to have an affair, she convinces her best friend, played by McGovern, to track the ex down and sleep with hi, so that the friend can tell her what he’s like in bed now.

The friend follows through, but there are consequences which neither of them predicted. Especially for the friend and her relationship with her boyfriend, played by Pitt.

After admitting the kiss, McGovern laughed and said, “Somebody had too. But I did it as a paid job because we were on a set acting. There are worse ways to make a living, so I’m not complaining. He cut his teeth with me, I think. I made him the man that he is!”

Everyone at the tea party was probably a little jealous of McGovern. Of course, in real life, she’s kissing her husband of 27 years, British film director and producer Simon Curtis. Since the scene with Pitt happened only two years after McGovern and Curtis tied the knot, we can’t help but wonder if Curtis was a little uncomfortable with the idea at the time.

Pitt makes for some stiff competition. But considering their marriage is still going strong after nearly three decades, it must not have been that big of a deal. 

Who is Brad Pitt kissing now?

Ever since Pitt split from Angelina Jolie earlier this year, fans have been wondering who he’s going to hook up with next. Rumors exploded when a source told US Weekly that Pitt was dating jewelry designer for the stars and spiritual healer, 50-year-old Sat Hari Khalsa. According to the source, “Sat is very special to him and someone he enjoys spending time with.”

However, those rumors are false according to reports from several news outlets. While Pitt does enjoy spending time with Hari Khalsa, they’re just friends and have never been romantic. Pitt is actually upset by the rumors according to Hollywood Life. “Brad actually finds it a little upsetting for Sat because he doesn’t want her to go through all this media hoopla,” a source told the outlet. 

For now, it appears the Pitt is single and focused on improving himself and his relationships with his six kids
