Sorry, Joe Burrow … Brad Pitt is definitely NOT in the Bengals’ corner this weekend — saying Thursday night he’s still ridin’ or dyin’ with his hometown team!!!
The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star made the not-so-shocking football pick after finishing up filming some scenes for his new flick with George Clooney out in NYC … saying, as expected, it’s Kansas City or bust for him this year.
“Chiefs, baby!” he said of his Super Bowl selection as he got into his ride.
Of course, Brad’s been a longtime supporter of the Chiefs … while he was born in Oklahoma, he moved to Missouri at an early age and was raised just a few hours from Arrowhead Stadium.
In fact, he’s been seen sporting K.C. gear multiple times over the years, even rockin’ a Chiefs cap at an awards show back in 2020.
In order for Pitt’s championship dream to come true, the Chiefs have got to get through Burrow and the Bengals this weekend — before they’ll take on the winner of the Eagles vs. 49ers in Super Bowl LVII.
AFC Championship Game kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m. PT — no word if Pitt will be there in person … but it’s abundantly clear he’ll be cheerin’ for Patrick Mahomes no matter what.
