Celebrities fill the seats for the men’s final on Centre Court

The grand finale of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships is the hottest ticket in town, with royals, celebrities and ex-tennis professionals turning out in force.

Cameras picked out many a familiar face enjoying a blustery but sunny day out in south London watching Novak Djokovic take on Carlos Alcaraz.

American actor Brad Pitt was seen wedged in between film director Guy Ritchie and film producer Jeremy Kleiner.

Kleiner is co-president of Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, working directly with the actor on World War Z (2013) and War Machine (2017).

Meanwhile, Pitt played a leading role in Ritchie’s famous crime comedy Snatch (2000).

Brad Pitt recently attended another Great British summer sporting event when he took to the track at Silverstone.

Amidst the drama of the f1 Grand Prix, Pitt was filming in the paddock for an Apple Studios racing film called Apex.

Elsewhere in the crowd, James Bond actor Daniel Craig and actress Rachel Weisz of The Mummy fame were spotted in the royal box on centre court.

Having first worked together on a 1994 production of ‘Les Grandes Horizontales’ at the National Theatre Studio, the couple fell for each other on the set of the film Dream House (2011).

They have been married since 2011.

Sat next to the couple in the royal box were James Norton and actress fiancée Imogen Poots.
