Chanel just released the first behind the scenes image from Brad Pitt’s new campaign for Chanel No. 5 to WWD, and the 48-year-old actor and father of six is looking pretty hot. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Pitt is getting $7 million for the campaign. That’s right, $7 million for a few days of work.
This will be the first time a man is fronting the campaign for the iconic women’s scent, with past faces including Catherine Deneuve, Candice Bergen, Nicole Kidman and Audrey Tautou.
The shoot was directed by Joe Wright, the Oscar nominated director behind Atonement and the upcoming Anna Karenina, and will feature Pitt speaking in a way that leads viewers to assume he is addressing a female. In the end, it will show he is in fact speaking to a bottle of the perfume.
The commercial will debut October 15, with print ads rolling out in November.
