Brad PittBrad PittIt has finally happened-the Internet has discovered a person with no awareness of Brad Pitt. Meet 90-year-old Peter Comfort, a British World War II veteran who was called upon to consult on the actor/producer's latest film, Fury. In the drama, The Telegraph reports, Pitt will play "a commander of a DD Sherman tank crew" and to prepare, Comfort, who had used the equipment during the war, was asked to visit the set and "explain what life was like inside the amphibious tanks."

The proceedings, per Comfort's account to The Telegraph:

"[My regiment had] been approached by an ex-officer who worked for a film company and asked if there were any old boys left.

"Then Brad Pitt phoned me and said he wanted to speak about Sherman tanks for a film. He talked me into going and, I have to say, I was extremely well treated.

"They wanted a lot of information to make it accurate and fired a lot of questions at me.

"The film crew got me up on the tank for a few pictures and wanted to know everything about it, where we slept, where we spent a penny, the living conditions and what it was like in action, so I told them.

"Mr Pitt was very friendly and charming actually, but I didn't know who he was. Fortunately, the night before Comfort's visit, the 90-year-old wisely opted to Google-search his host. "I said to him, until last night I didn't have a clue who you were and then I Googled you and you've been in quite a lot of films," Comfort said, relaying his conversation to the paper. "They all rolled about laughing when I said that."

The Telegraph has the adorable photo of their meeting if you want to take a look. Fury, from writer/director David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) co-stars Scott Eastwood and Logan Lerman, and is scheduled for a November, 2014 release in the U.S.
