Brad Pitt Sends Congratulations to Missouri State University Grads

Posted By on Tue, May 19, 2020 at 6:42 PM

Missouri-raised Brad Pitt filmed a greeting for Missouri State University graduates and the President of Missouri State University, Clif Smart, posted it to Twitter.

In the video, the Springfield boy who introduced himself as Brad “from quarantine,” had lots of love to give the graduating class of 2020.

With a sweet smile, he told them things like:

“We’re rooting for you, our money’s on you to make this world a better place.”

After his message, he ends the clip by asking new grads to “think big.” What a sweetheart. Props to Pitt. We’re proud to call him ours.
