Brad Pitt came too far ahead while appearing on Tuesday for the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors and he had to be hilariously cut off while asking for LACMA funding.
Pitt spoke eagerly about the need for additional funding for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art when President Janice Hahn stepped in to let him know he had spent his time.
The actor praised architect Peter Zumthor when the cut-off took place.
& # 39; It brings me a lot of pain to say that I have to close it, Mr. Pitt, & # 39; Hahn said as the room burst out laughing. & # 39; It kills me to say that, but shuts it down. & # 39;

Despite his star status, Brad Pitt was cut off from the chairwoman of the board because he exaggerated his allotted time during Tuesday's hearing with the District of Supervisors of Los Angeles County.
& # 39; It hurts me a lot to say that I have to close it, Mr. Pitt, & # 39; said chairman Janice Hahn as the room burst out laughing. & # 39; It kills me to say that, but shuts it down & # 39;
& # 39; We actors suffer from verbosity! & # 39; the star responded, while Keaton laughed beside him.
Picking up his statement, Pitt continued to sing the people involved in the museum like Hahn
The chairwoman claimed: & # 39; We only do one take here, & # 39; Thank you for being here, Mr. Pitt. & # 39;
Pitt and Diane Keaton urged board members to release $ 117.5 million in county funds for an excessive redesign of LACMA – the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

The couple's arguments had a convincing effect, with the nine-figure amount subsequently approved by the regulators.
The extensive redesign of LACMA includes the demolition of existing buildings to make way for a futuristic structure by architect Peter Zumthor.
The project is expected to cost $ 650 million.

Board members approved the financing of several million and made way for the LACMA revision (the prototype of Peter Zumthor is shown)
A large part of the money has been raised by private donations. Ryan Seacrest promised $ 2.5 million in exchange for the naming rights of a museum café, according to The Los Angeles Times.
During Tuesday's hearings, Keaton and Pitt sat side by side as they argued for the LACMA revision.
Dressed in her trademark bowler hat and sunglasses, Keaton, 74, praised the architectural credentials of Zumthor.

Pitt convinced the board members that he believes that Zumthor & # 39; builds from the soul & # 39;
& # 39; He has been honored with 16 awards, including the Pritzker Prize and the RIBA Royal Gold Medal. Imagine, as an actor, that you would have won 14 Academy Awards, which will never happen! & # 39; she explained.
The redesign of LACMA
-LACMA & # 39; s director started working with Peter Zumthor for the first time on a possible redesign of the museum in 2009
– Four existing LACMA buildings will be demolished to make way for the new structure
– The building is expected to extend over Wilshire Boulevard in the city
– It is wrapped in glass on all sides and the main galleries extend over a single level
Pitt, 55, was in the same way complimentary about the Swiss architect.
& # 39; He is an architect who builds from the soul, for the soul I cannot say enough about him & he said.
Pitt was subsequently cut off by chairman Janice Hahn because he exceeded his allotted time.
& # 39; We actors suffer from verbosity! & # 39; the star answered, while Keaton laughed beside him.
After the procedure, the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation page shared a photo of Pitt with department employees, after approval of the LACMA project.
