The "Curious Case of Benjamin Button" star managed to nab a secret sitdown from the new president while in Washington D.C. to meet with members of Congress, sources tell the Daily News. The meet was brief, and took place before Pitt met with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and others.
Seems there are no hard feelings between the two after Obama's advisers turned down Pitt's offer to help with his presidential campaign in 2007.
At the time, Obama insiders said they felt Pitt was "a great guy," but they didn't want their candidate to appear to be "too Hollywood."
Water under the bridge, eh, Brad?
Pitt lobbied his way through 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. - and most of D.C. - with Elizabeth Hurley's billionaire baby daddy Stephen Bing, former Bill Clinton staffer Chad Griffin and philanthropist (and occasional Angelina Jolie mouthpiece) Trevor Nielson, a D.C. insider tells Gatecrasher.
