For his role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt has decided to hire an ass double rather than show his real ass. All the media reporting this are wondering if it’s Angelina Jolie insisting, Tom Cruise style, that he not show it on screen. Because, when you think about it, that would be selling his sex appeal and if there’s one thing Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are known for doing, it’s marketing themselves as average looking thinking types. Actually, what the hell is going on? Paris Hilton is going to jail and everyone is excited and happy about it, Brad Pitt is refusing to bare his ass…what is with this massive roping in of the comfortably reliable soft core porn based culture we’ve come to know and love?
Still, there are two remarkable things that can come out of this. One is; whoever is employed as Brad Pitt’s ass double will be able to dine out on that job for years. As a resume item, it’s really an unsurpassable qualification. Two, we can start to think about what Brad Pitt’s ass actually looks like now, speculate, run a few speculation as fact blind item type stories. Because, and it feels safe and rational to say this; this is an issue that rates up there with global warming, if Brad Pitt’s ass is truly starting to sag it basically means a slow apocalypse based death for us all.
