Earlier this morning I covered a story from E! News, claiming Brad Pitt was being named the new face of Chanel No. 5, and now we’re getting the official press release from Chanel confirming the news!
Chanel has released this “official” image of Brad Pitt, confirming the deal.
Ooh, la la! C’est Brad! Brad Pitt’s famous mug has landed him a major deal unrelated to blockbuster films — a spokesmodel deal with Chanel.
“Chanel has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for CHANEL No. 5,” the brand said in a release.
The Chanel deal mark two firsts: it’s the 48-year-old actor’s debut beauty spokesmodel gig and the brand’s first time having a man represent its famously iconic women’s scent that launched back in the 1920s.
Pitt follows in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman, who starred in the short film No. 5 The Film in 2004 and Audrey Tautou who has held the spot as the scent’s visage since 2008.
Now, let’s all gossip about how much money Brad will make off the deal. You KNOW it was well into the 7 figure range. I can’t wait to see the print ads!
