Brad Pitt is keeping busy amidst all the wedding planning — the actor was just announced as the new face of Chanel No. 5. The French fashion house confirmed the news to PEOPLE earlier this morning.

The Academy Award-nominated star is reportedly shooting his first ad in London sometime this week, according to E! News.

It’s the first time in history that the house has chosen a man to represent the fragrance. Pitt joins the likes of Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis, Audrey Tautou, Ali MacGraw and Lauren Hutton.

According to reports, Pitt will be paid seven figures for his work; his ad will be released overseas later this year.

@meme. . .good idea. you’ll be without a fragrance you love and they’ll have NO idea. If ya wanna boycott something, make it a movie; that shows up at the box office. But NOT to buy something is like trying to prove a negative; they don’t know & don’t care. Work smarter, not harder; never punish yourself

He is still handsome. The scruffy look is for a film. I am sure he will clean up nicely for the ad! Lighten up folks :)

@SusiQ – you make an excellent point but i’ll go back to wearing when he ‘campaign’ is over and i’ll write to chanel also (not that they care). it’s not like he’ll be the face of chanel for more than a couple of months.

From a sales standpoint, it’s going to be a monster success. Wouldn’t influence me, but, to each her own. In this economy, it may be a troke of brilliane as far as pumping up the sales.
