Who said you have to be a girl to be the face of an iconic women's scent? Brad Pitt proves he could do just about anything, even being the model for the iconic perfume Chanel No.5.
Brad Pitt all by himself at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of "Killing Them Softly."
Brad Pitt has landed himself a major deal being hailed as the new face for Chanel No.5. The famous brand has selected the actor to be the face for its upcoming advertising campaign for the renowned perfume.
"Chanel has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for Chanel No.5," Chanel announced their statement using their official Twitter account.
Chanel didn't give any details but it is in fact the first time the famous perfume brand will be marketed towards women by a man. Brad Pitt joins Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou and Catherine Deneuve, the former faces to endorese the perfume brand.
Chanel No.5 was the first scent launched by the iconic French designer Coco Chanel back in 1922. The perfume attracted its first celebrity when Marilyn Monroe said that the fragrance was the only thing she wore to bed.
According to a report by E! News, the 48-year-old actor will be shooting his first advertisement for the perfume sometime this week in London. Back in 1937, the designer herself, Coco Chanel advertised for the company's oldest fragrance with a tag that said, "A woman must smell like a woman, and not a rose."
But Brad isn't the first male to ever campaign for a woman's fragrance line. Other celebrities like Justin Timberlake appeared on Givenchy Play, Chris Evans on Gucci Guilty and Paul Walker on Davidoff Cool Water.
Early reports suggest that the "Moneyball" actor will bring home a fat paycheck over seven digits for being the new face of the famous perfume brand. While his fiancée Angelina Jolie was reportedly handed $10 million back in 2011 for being the face of the luxury brand Louis Vuitton.
