The dad of six, 52, was caught on camera waving and blowing kisses from on set to a crowd of screaming fans. He stopped and pointed to the little girl being pushed up against a fence before climbing over a barrier and coming to her aid. He appeared to tell other fans to move back to give her space.

Pitt’s kind act didn’t end there. In the video, the War Machine star — who is married to Angelina Jolie — was seen comforting the child, who appeared to be crying. Bodyguards then lifted her over the fence to safety, and the Oscar-winning actor continued to rub her back and soothe her as medics came to check on her.

Pitt was dressed in character at the time of the incident. The actor — who stars alongside Marion Cotillard, Lizzy Caplan and Matthew Goode — plays a French-Canadian spy in the Robert Zemeckis–directed thriller.

Allied hits theaters on November 23, 2016.
