Brad Pitt, David Arquette and Courteney Cox: Cornell, Yes!

Celebuzz / May 4, 2009

If there’s one man with the ability to bring Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband and longstanding best friend together peacefully for one night, it’s Chris Cornell.

The former Soundgarden warbler played a show at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre on Sunday night, treating the crowd to both favorite tracks from his back catalog and new songs from Scream, his collaboration with producer Timbaland

Among those in attendance for the performance were Courteney Cox and her hubby David Arquette, along with some guy named Brad Pitt

“During the beginning of the show Courteney and David hung out in the lobby by the bar for while chatting with some friends,” an eyewitness tells Celebuzz. “Meanwhile, Brad was inside, enjoying the show. He was right among the people, and no one was really bothering him too much.”

The source adds, “[Pitt] stayed for the entire show, encore and all, and left with the crowd. He didn’t even try to slip out early. His body guard wasn’t with him, just a driver.

Pitt’s fondness for Cornell’s work extends back some years. In 2004, he told Cinema Confidential, “I’m a big Chris Cornell addict, anything he does.”

Meanwhile, Brad’s current lady, Angelina Jolie, is all the way on the other end of the country, filming Salt.

Wonder if Cox texted her gal-pal Aniston, letting her know where she could find Brad?
