Brad Pitt's acceptance speech at the 2020 SAG Awards may result in a spike of downloads for Tinder.
The dating app got an unexpected callout after the actor won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" on Sunday evening, with the Pitt admiring the actor statue when he reached the stage before uttering a quip that garnered a raucous laugh from the star-studded crowd.
"I got to add this to my Tinder profile," Pitt joked.
"Seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA." Brad Pitt is full of quips as he accepts the #SAGAwards statue for best supporting actor in a film https://t.co/duqdI5q1azpic.twitter.com/Kb1kL0LqR6

The rest of the actor's speech was just as funny: Pitt also made fun of his director, Tarantino, and his apparent obsession with showing women's feet in his films, saying, "Seriously, Quentin has separated more women from their shoes than the TSA."
Pitt made another self-deprecating joke about his love life later on in the speech, sarcastically implying that his work in "Once Upon a Time..." wasn't a "stretch" for him.
"Let's be honest it was a difficult part: A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get on with his wife," he said of the stunt man he played. "It's a big stretch."
Naturally, the camera man cut to Pitt's ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, as the audience laughed about his joke.
Twitter users went wild over Pitt's joke-filled acceptance speech at the SAG Awards, saying that the actor is "peaking right before [our] eyes."

This isn't the first time that Pitt has alluded to his love life during an acceptance speech this awards season: When he won an award for the same performance at this year's Golden Globes earlier this month, Pitt said, "I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn't because any woman I stand next to, they say I'm dating. It would just be awkward."
Unsurprisingly, cameras also cut to Aniston at that moment, and her reaction went viral.
