Brad Pitt tossed Matthew McConaughey a beer from his balcony when the actors spotted each other across the street in New Orleans over the weekend.

The unexpected interaction was captured on video by starstruck fans. It was just your typical, spontaneous neighborly gesture between two of the biggest movie stars in the world.

And two recent Oscar winners to boot. Both Pitt and McConaughey took home statues at the Academy Awards earlier this year. Pitt earned the honor for producing 12 Years A Slave, which one Best Picture. McConaughey, meanwhile, continued his awards season sweep of the Best Actor categories for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

It’s unclear why McConaughey was in New Orleans. Pitt, however, has a home in the Louisiana city with Angelina Jolie. His Make It Right Foundation is also based in New Orleans, building sustainable homes in areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

McConaughey’s wildly successful year, which also saw him earn enormous praise for “True Detective,” will have a bit of a break until the actor’s next movie, Interstellar, comes out in November. Pitt, similarly, doesn’t have a a film hitting theaters until October, when Fury opens.

That means there’s plenty of time for more beer tossing.
