So he's a fan! Brad Pitt goes to see Bradley Cooper's The Elephant Man in London... and makes a theatrical impression with a pork pie hat

Bradley Cooper has gotten a lot of attention, first on Broadway and now on the London stage, for his performance in The Elephant man.

And on Wednesday the 40-year-old actor had a very special and very famous theatergoer attend his show at the Haymarket Theatre.

None other than Brad Pitt was spotted entering the play while wearing a jaunty pork pie hat.

The 51-year-old sported a semi-sheer black shirt, matching denim trousers, and boots.

Bradley was also seen later that night leaving the theater in a bomber jacket and a snap back cap.

The Hangover star plays Joseph (John) Merrick, who is disfigured due to a congenital disorder.

The play explores the character of Merrick, whose humanity and a profound dignity is revealed through his relationship with a physician Dr. Frederic Treves. 

Meanwhile, Pitt made headlines earlier this month after he sent a letter to retail giant Costco in which he was spitting feathers about the treatment of chickens.

In the document, sent to the company's CEO Craig Jelinek, the learned celebrity wrote: 'As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings.

'As you know, many major corporations, from Burger King to Unilever, are getting rid of cages - and Whole Foods hasn’t sold eggs from caged hens in years.

'Please, will you set a reasonable timeframe to stop selling eggs from caged hens?'

He was following in the footsteps of foul-mouthed comedian Bill Maher and fellow silver screen hunk Ryan Gosling in demanding better treatment for chickens.
