According to the Us Weekly, Hollywood star Brad Pitt is the face of Chanel No.5 in the upcoming ad campaign.

Brad Pitt is the face of Chanel No.5 in upcoming ad2012 is a successful year for actor Brad Pitt. Not only will he marry the woman with whom he shares his life, his homes and his kids for years now – in case you’re not from Earth, we’re talking about Angelina Jolie – , but he will also be a spokesmodel. Apparently, his mugshot impressed not only the ladies and the movie producers, but also a huge fashion brand.

“Chanel has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for CHANEL No. 5”, said the press release of Chanel.

This is new for Pitt, 48, who has never been a spokesmodel before. But Chanel never had a man represent a woman’s fragrance before, either.

Previous Hollywood icons that became the face of Chanel No.5 advertising campaigns were Nicole Kidman, in 2004, and Audrey Tautou in 2008.

Pitt is not the only one in the family cashing in for representing iconic brands. Mrs. Jolie landed a deal with Louis Vuitton in 2011, for which she was paid 11 million dollars.
