Washington, Aug 28 : American actor Brad Pitt was stunned when he was handed over the Best Actor trophy he had won last year for 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford' at the 65th Venice International Film Festival.
The mistress of ceremonies handed Pitt, who was in Venice for the premiere of his new film 'Burn After Reading', the engraved gold cup.
"I guess you forgot something here years ago," People magazine quoted her as saying as she held the cup.
"Brad, this is yours.
"Congratulations for your twins," she told Pitt as she handed him the trophy.
A surprised Pitt took the trophy, which had been awarded, to him at the 2007 film awards.
"You can run but you can't hide," Pitt said laughing.
"It was an honour to receive this last year and it's an honour to receive it this year. Thank you very much," he added.
