In a new interview, Pitt’s then-neighbor Cassandra Peterson revealed that one of the homes Pitt purchased was the property of an elderly widow who’d been living there ever since his wife died and that when Pitt bought the home, he made a deal with the man to live there rent-free for the remainder of his life.
Brad Pitt was very kind to his neighbor, a 105-year-old lady. The 59-year-old actor reportedly gave his elderly next-door neighbor free rent at a house in Los Angeles.
Reportedly purchasing the property from Cassandra Peterson (Elvira from “Elvira: Mistress of the Dark”) in 1994 for $1.7 million, Pitt reportedly sold the home in March for $40 million.
Ex-husband Angelina Jolie was diversifying his real estate holdings and bought the house where an elderly neighbor lived.
“I think there were like 22 houses that were contiguous to the edge of the property. And every time they came up, he bought one,” Peterson told the outlet.
Pitt felt sorry for his elderly neighbor and let him stay in the house for the rest of his life. “He was very, very kind to the husband. His wife passed away, and the husband, John, lived there,” Peterson said. “I know that Brad allowed him to live there without paying anything until he died.”

Peterson made a joke that the rent-free period lasted longer than Pitt had anticipated. She commented on how ironic it was that John had reached the age of 105. The neighbor, John, “just kept living forever,” according to Peterson.
“I imagine Brad was thinking, ‘Well, you know, he can live there till he dies, which might be any minute now,’” she added.
In the 1990s, when Peterson sold Pitt her home, Pitt remained in the area. She gushed about how “always kind and sweet” the Oscar winner was.
While out for a stroll, she spotted Pitt in his “Fight Club” training uniform from 1999. “I go past Brad’s garage, and he’s in there wearing only sweatpants,” Peterson said. “He’s got on boxing gloves, and he is punching a bag. I swear I almost fainted.”
“I remember, he goes, ‘Hey, how are you?’ and I’m like, ‘Huh?’ I couldn’t talk. I was turning red. I felt like I was fainting. He’s just so stunningly, stunningly handsome — and nice, to top it off.”
Their six children were all raised in the Los Feliz mansion owned by Pitt and Jolie. Peterson said the house was haunted in a recent interview.
It was haunted, she says, so she moved out of the house in the ’90s. However, that ended up being a selling point for the young Hollywood star.
Peterson stated, “We were just kind of warning him that a lot of weird things have been going on there in the house since we moved in.” This was said while she and her then-husband were discussing the house with Pitt. That made him very happy, too. That impressed him a lot, he said.
She claimed the “weird things” she’d been experiencing were more than just shadows and noises.
I’ve seen actual people just strolling around the upper floors. A ghost once walked into my room and out again, and it was sitting by the fireplace downstairs.

She thought the situation was so dire that she had a priest perform an exorcism there. “I had all kinds of things because it was really getting to a point of like, ‘I don’t know if I can continue to live here,'” she recalled.
“So we were telling Brad all about that, and he loved it,” Peterson said. “I mean, there are not many buyers who that would be a selling point for, but he was like, ‘Oh, that’s so awesome.’ I love that he appreciated the house so much.”
