Brad addresses love life at Golden Globes

He is one of Hollywood's most eligible - and enduring - bachelors.

And Brad Pitt delivered a show-stopping speech referencing his dating life as his ex, Jennifer Aniston, watched on at the Golden Globes.

"I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn't because any woman I stand next to they say I am dating," Pitt, 56, told the star-studded crowd at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"So it'd just be awkward."

Of course, the camera panned to Pitt's ex-wife, Aniston, 50, who was sitting nearby as her ex-husband won Best Supporting Actor for his role as ageing stuntman Cliff Booth in the Quentin Tarantino-directed Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Pitt and Aniston - who was also nominated for a Golden Globe today - were married from 2000-2005, before Pitt began a much-publicised relationship with Angelina Jolie (they have since divorced, obviously).

After his marriage to Jolie ended, Pitt and Aniston reportedly became close again, with Pitt attending her 50th birthday at Sunset Tower last year.

Back to Brad's big Golden Globes win. Referencing his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio by his nickname - "LDC" - Pitt described DiCaprio as a "gent".

"He's an all-star, he's a gent, and I wouldn't be here without you, man," Pitt said onstage.

He then made a refence to DiCaprio's infamous "raft" scene from Titanic. "I would have shared the raft," Pitt added, with a cheeky grin.

This was Pitt's second Golden Globe award after he won his first in 1996 for 12 Monkeys, though the acting veteran has never won an Oscar.

"When I was starting out these names that were just listed … were like gods to me," Pitt said of the other nominees in the category (he beat Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci).

Ending his speech in characteristically charming form, Pitt added: "Hey, if you see a chance to be kind to someone tomorrow take it. I think we need it."

Earlier, Pitt said he expected to "run into Jen" at the Golden Globes, saying "she's a good friend," according to Entertainment Tonight.

"The second most important reunion of her year? I understand," Pitt added, referencing the upcoming Friends reunion. "That was a play on Friends. They were saying that."

Pitt and Aniston attended the 2002 Golden Globes together, three years before their marriage was over.

In addition to Pitt's acting gong, Tarantino's Los Angeles-set Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also nabbed best film (comedy or musical), along with best screenplay for Tarantino at the Golden Globes.

Could an Oscar be next? After the Golden Globes, a nomination seems very likely.
