All the best pics from the opening weekend of the prestigious Toronto Film Festival - a key precursor of the Oscar contenders to look forward to. This year's 12 Years a Slave from director Steve McQueen and starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender & Brad Pitt has already staked its claim as a TIFF favourite and frontrunner at the 2014 Academy Awards!
Los Angeles - Brad Pitt surprised an unsuspecting couple on their wedding day on Sunday.
Bride Abi Lingwood and her new husband Daniel were given an extra boost on their big day when they discovered the Hollywood heartthrob was staying at the same Buckinghamshire hotel they held their wedding reception.
The 49-year-old star - who is shooting new World War II blockbuster Fury at the nearby Pinewood Studios - was spotted by the groom enjoying a drink at the bar of the five-star Stoke Park hotel in Maidenhead.
Abi told local newspaper the Maidenhead Advertiser: "My husband said to me Brad Pitt was at the bar and you have got to come with me so he dragged me across the hotel. I thought he was joking,"
The suave star, who is in the midst of planning his own wedding to fiancée Angelina Jolie, obliged the bride's request for photos and complimented her wedding gown.
She added: "He said congratulations and I hope you have had a great day and let's have a picture. And he said I looked nice. He was really nice."
Awestruck Abi admits the A-lister's presence caused a stir among her wedding party, who deluged him with requests for pictures, and claims Brad unwittingly upstaged her nuptials.
She said: "The girls were going wild and mental so Brad Pitt and the people he was with went upstairs to a room for their meeting.
"It has become more of a talking point than my wedding, but that is fine."
