Brad Pitt looks old, nerdy on cover of Wired



Tbd-bradpitt071709 Maybe we're just hating on Brad Pitt, but when did he turn into Benicio del Toro? The 45-year-old actor ostensibly shills his upcoming Quentin Tarantino flick Inglourious Basterds by sporting a Bluetooth earpiece and talking about nerdy things while channeling Lt. Aldo Raine, Nazi scalp hunter. We're buying our copy today.

"Who cares if your Warcraft wife is really a dude," Brad says right on the cover. "If it's good, don't check under the hood."

Among his other nuggets of wisdom, he says to limit bathroom conversations to text messaging, because, well, talking on the phone in a public restroom is just foul: "Just be sure you don't hit the wrong button and end up putting a photo of your junk on Twitter. Trust me, you don't want those followers."

And that whole issue of truthiness online? Yeah, forget that, especially when discussing income.

"Everyone lies online. In fact, readers expect you to lie. If you don't, they'll think you make less than you actually do. So the only way to tell the truth is to lie."

Hey, it all makes sense to us.
