The movie “The Tree of Life,” staring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, was being filmed about eight blocks from the Katy House B&B and two of our guests decided to walk over to the filming site to see if they could see Brad. These two young adults had been antique shopping all day in Round Top and Warrenton, but found the energy to check out the filming. As their moms sat on the front porch enjoying wine, the girls returned, very excited. They had been allowed to walk down the street between “takes” and saw Brad on a bike, not 50 feet from them. It made their day!
After they left the next day, I found the following entry in the guest book in their room:
April 6, 2008
Dear Sallie & Bruce,
Thanks for the fabulous Katy House “Pitt” stop on the way to antique shopping in Warrenton and Round Top. It was a “Pitty” the rain fell the first day of our visit. We acquired a bottomless “Pitt” of memories when the “Pitt” bull sheriff almost arrested our dis-“Pitt”-able daughters for attempting to photograph Brad Pitt. The photos of Brad, however, caused all of our hearts to pal-“Pitt”-tate!
We had such fun celebrating our 5th Anniversary at the Katy House while drinking wine on the Katy House porch among Sallie’s gorgeous “Pitt”unias.
Thanks for an ever so much more exciting trip than one to “Pitt”sburg! This shall be a wonderful memory on our “Tree of Life”.
Love and Hugs,
J.G, M.G., S.A, and N.B.
