Brad Pitt to Smell Like a Parisian Lady as New Face of Chanel No. 5
May 09, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
In a surprise marketing maneuver, the male half of Brangelina is rumored to be the new face of the world's most iconic perfume. That's right, Brad Pitt is shilling Chanel No. 5.
According to E! Online, the actor and father of (how many are they up to now?) is in London filming the first ad which will be released overseas later this year. And for his troubles he'll be taking home a nice little paycheck in the seven figure range -- just enough to keep that ever-expanding brood dripping in juice boxes for years to come.
Neither Pitt nor Chanel would comment on the veracity of the rumor, but if it's true, he would be the first man in No. 5's 91-year history to front the brand. It's unclear, however, if Mr. Jolie-Pitt will be hocking the original scent or a new men's version. [Telegraph via E! Online]
