Brad Pitt has reportedly been named the first male face of Chanel’s signature No.5 fragrance. The Hollywood actor is said to have signed up to star in a commercial for the scent, according to US website E! Online.
The Chanel No. 5 advertisement is set to be released overseas later this year.
It is understood Brad will receive a generous pay check of seven figures for the endorsement of the women’s perfume.
While representatives for Brad and Chanel
are yet to comment on the project, a source revealed the actor will begin filming the first advertisement in London this week.
The 48-year-old hunk and new fiancée Angelina Jolie recently bought a new house in Richmond, south west London, so he will be in the capital for the campaign.
Brad follows in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood star Nicole Kidman - who became the face of the scent in 2003 in a series of alluring advertisement campaigns.
Catherine Deneuve, Lauren Hutton, Estella Warren and Ali MacGraw have also represented the women's scent.
