While many weighed in with comments of the photo, comedian Chelsea Handler asked, “Are you guys holding hands in this pic?” to which Liu replied, “I’m cupping his cheek 🍑” 
As Liu described meeting Pitt as “the greatest moment of his life,” licking a maggot in his soon-to-air episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” was likely not one of his greatest moments, and waxing for his upcoming role in “Barbie” was one of his most painful. 
Liu has many recent memories to compare his meeting the “Fight Club” actor to, including being named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world and releasing a best-selling memoir.       
Pitt’s film “Bullet Train” has received backlash for what some consider whitewashing of a Japanese story, but the novelist behind the adapted work, Kotaro Isaka, is unconcerned as he considers the characters “ethnically malleable.”
