Ever wanted to know what Brad Pitt smelled like? Well, “Minari” star and Oscar winner Yuh-Jung Youn can’t tell you.
The South Korean-born star, 73, was backstage celebrating her history-making Oscars win for Best Supporting Actress, which Pitt presented to her.
According to a tweet from journalist Kevin Polowy, Youn was asked by a reporter what the “Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood” star smelled like during her backstage interview with the press. She responded, “I didn’t smell him. I’m not a dog.”
Fellow journalist Ruben Nepales corroborated the outlandish question — and the actress’ sassy answer.
During the backstage interview, Youn was asked if she would ever be in a movie with Pitt. “That would never happen with my English and the age, you know. I don’t think so. So, I don’t dream,” she quipped.
During her speech, Youn joked, “Nice to meet you Mr. Brad Pitt, very honored to meet you. She then said in a moving speech that referenced how she usually watched the “far away” program from her home in Korea. “Let me pull myself, together, OK? Thank you to the academy members who vote for me.”
