While I’ve always loved me some Brad Pitt, this one puts him over the top for me: if I could be any A-list Hollywood actor, I’d be Brad, or should I say, William Pitt.
Let’s break this down step-by-step, shall we? Here we have an internationally famous dude who has one of the most recognizable faces in the world. If you saw him in the streets of New York, you’d say to your friends, “holy shit, that’s Brad Pitt!”. Not William — Brad.
Look, we’ve all lied about our names to girls before. Personally, my go-to fake name is Tom. Short, sweet, one syllable and easy to remember. But I lie about my name at bars to random girls because they have no idea what my real name is and I find it hilarious. But this is BRAD Pitt we’re talking about — almost everyone in the world knows who Brad Pitt is. Yet here he is, introducing himself to women as “William” just to strike up a conversation. Absolutely brilliant.
via Page Six:
“…Pitt flirted with a woman and introduced himself as “William” on a caffeine run at Coffee Commissary in Los Angeles.
When the woman said, “I’m Lydia,” Pitt “put out his hand and said, ‘Hi, I’m William.’ She replied, ‘Oh, you look like a Bradley.’ And he responded, ‘Well, that’s my middle name’ and smiled and winked at her.”
As Lydia exited she said, “‘Nice to meet you, Bradley … I mean William.’ He laughed to himself, then got on his bike.”
Only, and I mean only, guys like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio can get away with something like this.
