Brad Pitt can do no wrong: the actor just signed a seven-figure deal to shoot a commercial for Chanel No. 5 perfume. E! Online reports that Pitt’s promotional shoot will take place in London sometime this week, and that the completed commercial will air later this year overseas.
The iconic Chanel fragrance has had some major Hollywood support over the last 90 years. Marilyn Monroe admitted in 1954 that she wore only Chanel No. 5 to bed, and modern-day faces in the perfume’s ad campaigns include Audrey Tautou and Nicole Kidman.
Chanel confirmed the news this morning, tweeting this photo of Pitt with the caption, “CHANEL has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for CHANEL N°5.” How do you think he’ll do as a brand ambassador?
