LEAWOOD, KS (KCTV) -- Kyli Maddox just arrived back from the trip of a lifetime after winning a charity auction to hang out near the red carpet during last week’s SAG Awards. Maddox brought along her mom, aunt and cousin for the big event.

“Let’s do it. It’s like the most fun people. They love Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and we all are obsessed with Brad Pitt,” Maddox said.

The Chiefs fan also brought along Chiefs hats that she got from Kansas Sampler in Leawood.

“We just picked the black because we thought he’d probably be in a black tuxedo,” Maddox said.

Pitt, who brought home a SAG Award Sunday night for his role in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri and is a Chiefs fan. Maddox decided to make that work for all of Chiefs Kingdom.

You can see Pitt is clearly grateful as Maddox’ mom made the perfect toss.

“He was just so gracious and he’s so cute,” Maddox said.

Maddox says she’s shocked the hat toss has gone viral.

“I didn’t realize this would happen. It is insane the power of social media and all that,” Maddox said.

Brad Pitt was born in Oklahoma and not Missouri.


Nice story other than you got one thing wrong. Brad Pitt was not born in Springfield. He was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma. This is why you saw him at the Rose Bowl a couple of years ago wearing a OU hat.
