Fans got worried when Hollywood star Brad Pitt was seen with a large cut under his left eye when he arrived at the 3rd annual Light Up the Blues Concert, but the actor assured the bruise was a result of minor incident.
“This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops,” Pitt said in a statement to people.com. “Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash. Regardless, I wasn’t going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after - wonderful people and I was honoured to be a part of this important event,” he added. The 51-year-old took the stage at the 2015 Light Up the Blues Concert to benefit NGO Autism Speaks.
