Brad Pitt tips lucky waitress $700

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their kids leaving Kuchi Brad Pitt tipped a lucky waitress more than $700. The actor splashed the cash as he ordered $1,000 worth of sushi and other Japanese dishes and gave the very generous tip to the stunned server at a family dinner to celebrate fiancée Angelina Jolie's 38th birthday at Japanese eatery Kuchi in Berlin, Germany last week. Waitress Undine Orth, 24, told Germany's Bild newspaper: "They are so cool. At nine o'clock at night, they were there at the door. They took their shoes off, like all guests." The 49-year-old heartthrob reportedly ordered up a sample of everything on the menu for himself, Angelina and their six kids - Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - including sushi, salad, yakitori chicken and soup, which came to more than $1,000. After finishing the appetizing meal, Brad whipped out $1,846 in cash and said, 'That's good,' according to awestruck Undine. She said: "My knees were shaking. I shared the tip with 15 of my colleagues." Brad, 49, and Angelina were in town for the German premiere of his new zombie thriller World War Z and spared time from promotional duties to celebrate the Salt beauty's special day.

    LOL… what are you talking about Swellie?

    “It’s about time they spread the wealth?” that’s absurd. If they want to tip big or small, that’s their prerogative. You make it sound like Brangelina do not work hard for their income? They just found something they love to do and that they are good at and have had success. They don’t owe us or you anything.

    Actors typically work long hours and are on set at 4am etc.

    Youtube Reservoir Dogs/Steve Buscemi on tipping.

    End of argument.

    To Swellie again, you sure have attitude. When Brad Pitt started out he was not rich by any means and he worked hard to become what he is today. Ask any good looking person trying to break into the movies how hard it is and most of them don’t even make it. He happen to be lucky and then why should he give? He earned it, but he does give, not like the other rich who take no notice. I agree with LOL.

    Haha this is hilarious. Are you saying that you become rich by lucking out? Wow reality check, I was poor and got rich and it wasn’t by “lucking” out. Maybe study and work hard and don’t worry or complain a it rich people and worry about yourself? Maybe the so called “rich” people are complaining why are we giving out handouts to the “poor” people who are lazy and don’t want earn money.

    I don’t call acting “hard work.” Ask any actor and they’ll admit that they get overpaid for what they do and that what they do is fun, unlike waitresses or office workers, many of whom are underpaid and hate their jobs. Brad and Angelina are billionaires and could make a lot of people’s lives a little easier by spreading their wealth to people they come into contact with who make very little money and could use a break.

    C-Dub, a lot of people study and work hard and never get rich. Some of them never even get jobs in the fields that they studied for.

    Live within your means, tipping used to be showing appreaciation for ones meal and delivery now its a requirement when the poor women/men stays on their feet all day running around serving. You want your food served on time and in good condition “the next time” tip well, if you are not going back there again, “anything will do” and if you are going to be a regular dont deviate from the amount, the same amount the same service, simple. If the next person want to tip like money comes out of their ass let them, who knows if they really are “rich” or have a daddy warbucks in a multitude of credit cards. Does it matter?

  8. Checkit • June 11, 2013 @ 8:08 PM

    I think it was nice of him, maybe the service was worth it? The food was worth it? Either way $700 is still $700 even if you have millions. Millionairs don’t stay rich by paying double what everyone else pays.

    * Vayne – FYI – Best Actress Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis was 6 years old when she acted in Beasts of the Southern Wild (the movie for which she received the nomination). Anna Paquin was 10 when she played the role in The Piano for which she won an Academy Award. If “It takes years of hard work and dedicated study to develop professional acting skills” as you say, then why are children able to do it. Here’s a tip, if a six-year-old is in the same profession, don’t call it hard work that takes years of study. Acting isn’t known as “play acting” because it’s hard work.

    If I were rich, I would spread money like heaven!!

  11. Vayne • June 12, 2013 @ 3:03 PM

    *Swellie – If we’re going to compare “kid” actors in this category… we need to return back to the original argument of “BIG tipping”. I do not believe that Wallis or Paquin earned $10M+ for their roles in each respective movies in which they were awarded or nominated for.

    We are talking about Rich People who should “always” tip generously, and it being time for them to “spread the wealth” and how “acting is not hard work”.

    Wallis and Paquin were both recognized by the respective nomination committees for their role in the movies they were in. That doesn’t mean they’re going to be millionaires etc. That just means they were recognized for their natural “acting talent” at a very young age. How many movies has Wallis been in? Can you guarantee she will be acting when she’s 30 years old and be making block buster movie after block buster movie? Will she be making $20+Million a movie? Will she work hard at her craft?

    Answer me this… IF Wallis is still acting 20 years from now and is “successful”… are you going to tell me it’s because she’s just that super talented and not because of “hard work” to improve her craft?

  12. Swellie • June 13, 2013 @ 11:30 AM

    *Vayne – I’m not talking about kid actors in reference to tipping or spreading out money. I’m sure most families take the bulk of what they earn.

    I was comparing how “hard work” acting is, when you consider children can do it. No six-year-old could be a policeman or a surgeon or a lawyer or an accountant. So tell me again how hard acting is.
