Brad Pitt shoots topless girl, sells cellphones
Brad Pitt is a star of the Japanese (small) screen in a remake of the 1953 French film Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot -- that'd be Mr. Hulot's Vacation to you -- directed by Wes Anderson, Us reports. But don't get excited, it's just a 30-second commerical for Softbank Mobile's latest line of cellphones.
Pitt shot the commercial in Normandy on Sept. 20. It's his fourth ad for the company, but this time he gets to push a stalled car, almost get mowed down by some bicyclists and takes a photo of a topless sunbather. Oh, those wacky French movies!
"There were lots of children on the set, and Brad was very friendly to all of them," a source from the set tells Us. "Some of the children had complicated French names. He turned to them and said, 'What is your name?' in the most perfect French. He's obviously been studying very hard."
He's also been studying Japanese, since the source claims: "Brad also used a few Japanese words to the Softbank execs too. He's becoming a master of many languages."
We don't know if that makes him a master of languages, but we're sure he said "domo arigato" for the paycheck.
