Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt accepts mocking over ad
Brad Pitt has called the Chanel No.5 spoofs ''fair play'' and admits that he has been ''blissfully protected'' from watching them while he has been filming.
Brad Pitt thinks spoofs of his Chanel No. 5 advert are ''fair play''.
The 'Moneyball' actor stars in the fashion house's latest campaign for their iconic perfume and the clips have been the subject to much ridicule, including an infamous 'Saturday Night Live' skit which saw a lookalike ask directors whether there is a script for him to read from instead of sounding ''insane'' talking to himself.
However, Brad admits he is ''blissfully'' unaware off the parody videos online and isn't bothered about the mocking.
He said: ''I've been overseas, so I've been blissfully protected. I haven't [seen the parodies], but I say absolutely fair play, fair play.''
Brad, 48, was the first male star to head the campaign - taking over from French actress Audrey Tatou - and is pleased with the work Chanel put into the final product.
He added to 'Access Hollywood': ''I kind of liked it ... I respect what they do. They do some really quality things.''
For his latest role in Andrew Hominik's film 'Killing Them Softly', where he plays enforcer Jackie Cogan, he took up smoking and despite having previously quit he found it ''great'' to puff away at a cigarette again.
He mused: ''[I've quit] several times, I'm really good at it. It's great, it's great.''
He knows he won't carry on though as he doesn't want to affect his fiancee Angelina Jolie and their children Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
He explained: ''But you have to know that you're going to have to quit on the other end and that that ugly day is coming, so you over enjoy it I guess.
''I'm very conscious of health now and I want to be around for my kids, I don't have that drive anymore. I don't crave it all.''
