Brad Pitt just won his first Oscar for his awesome acting, but many people may not know how passionate he is about architecture, home design, and construction.

The superstar recently teamed up with the Property Brothers for the premiere of their new HGTV show, Celebrity IOU. The premise revolves around celebrities surprising loved ones with major home renovations.

Brad appeared on the show for his dear friend Jean Ann Black, who has been his makeup artist for the past 30 years. Jean Ann has done Brad’s makeup for more than 40 films!

The actor and activist wanted to turn Jean Ann’s garage at her home in Santa Monica into a guesthouse she can also use as a workspace and storage area for her makeup supplies.

“This will mean so much to her,” Brad says. “I’m the guy who’s gonna cry on television.”

Brad happily took part in the demolition process, and by the end of the show, one of his oldest friends had been given the studio she always dreamed of.

When the Property Brothers finally completed the renovation, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room — especially when Jean Ann saw the touching tribute to her late parents.
