Fans were surprised when Brad Pitt popped up at Kanye West’s ultra-exclusive Sunday Service. The gospel-themed gatherings are held weekly at his home with Kim Kardashian, and attract many of the KarJenner clan’s closest friends. Now, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star is explaining just how he and Kanye, 42, became friends at all.

Brad, 55, told Extra about the services at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film, Ad Astra.  “It’s really beautiful… I think what he’s doing is pretty special,” he said. “It’s this real celebratory thing of people and it’s a really loving vibe and it’s beautiful — it’s huge, so beautiful. I find it really special.”

He said he and Kanye first connect by “just running [into each other] through the years.” And he had nothing but kind words for the often-controversial superstar.

“I love that there’s a Kanye out in the world, like, messing things up, you know?” Brad said. “Envisioning the future and, you know, we can’t forget his music. He was one of the first to come out and be raw and open — he should always get credit for that.”
