Brad Pitt unveiled as first male Chanel face

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.
