He came clean to the Daily Mail, revealing: “This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops. Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash.”

Ouch.

Still, there’s a lesson there about only wearing your flip-flops if you’re off to the beach, and never being tempted to try and work them into your day-to-day wardrobe. Let’s all learn a thing or two from Brad Pitt’s errors.

Ever the trooper, though, Brad clearly wasn’t going to let a nasty-looking graze on his face stand in the way of attending a charity bash, adding: “Regardless, I wasn't going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after - wonderful people and I was honored to be a part of this important event.”

We’re pleased to see that he wasn’t going to make the same mistake again, and wisely decided to leave his flip flops at home for the benefit.
