Niall Horan has revealed that the person he would love to go on a night out with is Hollywood legend Brad Pitt.
The Irish star made the comments in a tweet after Pitt won his first Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
During Pitt’s acceptance speech he was critical of Republican senators who had voted against calling new witnesses to President Trump’s impeachment trial.
Pitt told the audience: “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week
“I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”
While this drew criticism from some quarters, there were also a number of viewers who were impressed with Pitt for speaking out.
One of those viewers was the former One Direction singer turned solo star.
Horan tweeted: “I’d love to go for a pint with Brad Pitt.”
