He told People magazine: "I didn't know it was Thanksgiving until like midday. Until [the] afternoon."

The actor explained: "It completely escaped me until someone brought me some English pumpkin pie."

Though Pitt forgot about Thanksgiving, the Southampton General Hospital was thankful for a generous donation from the actor.

Pitt emptied out the contents of his wallet to give $1,100 for a fundraiser collecting money for the hospital's neonatal unite, where his friend's son, Zachary Gallagher, spent nine weeks after being born.

Zachary's mother Karley Gallagher told People:

"The silver lining is that Zachary is home and alive... To have Brad assist us is more than we could ever have wished for."
