D-Day veteran and ex-Sherman tank crewman Peter Comfort, 90, had the Hollywood legend in fits of laughter
A World War II hero told how he had Hollywood legend Brad Pitt in fits of laughter after telling him he had no idea who he was.
Ex-tank crewman Peter Comfort, 90, got a phone call from the producers of Pitt’s latest blockbuster in which the actor plays the commander of a Sherman tank.
They invited the D-Day veteran on-set to watch the filming of the A-list star’s latest WWII action movie ‘Fury’ and help the actor get to know what life was like living and fighting in a Sherman.
Peter went to meet the Ocean’s Eleven star – and left the film crew in stitches when he told him he’d had to check him out on the internet first.
He said: “Mr Pitt was very friendly and charming actually but I didn’t know who he was.
“I said to him ‘Until last night I didn’t have a clue who you were and then I googled you and you’ve been in quite a lot of films’.
“They all rolled about laughing when I said that.
