Turns out Brad Pitt forgets he’s massive f*ck-off Hollywood star when he’s attempting to chat up a bird, after his dating prowess was revealed this week.
His big secret? He uses his real name.
Oh, you didn’t know Brad wasn’t his real name. Pah! It’s William!
And it seems Brad (or, er, William) thinks he has a better chance of scoring some digits if he puts that one forward when introducing himself to a pretty lady.
Since splitting with his wife, Angelina Jolie, in September 2016, the 54-year-old has been back on the market and seemingly flirting up a storm using underhanded tactics of mystery and intrigue IE his real name.
According to Page Six, the actor introduced himself as ‘William’ when flirting with a woman recently *cue shock* – who was said to ‘look like Kate Bosworth, but it wasn’t her’ – at Coffee Commissary in Los Angeles recently.
The publication spoke to a third-wheel who witnessed the interaction, saying when the woman – named ‘Lydia’ – introduced herself, Brad ‘put out his hand and said, “Hi, I’m William.”‘
To which she replied, ‘Oh, you look like a Bradley.’ And Brad – in this seemingly endless repartee, responded, ‘”Well, that’s my middle name” and smiled and winked at her.’
Page Six then writes the woman-known-as-Lydia then said ‘Nice to meet you, Bradley . . . I mean William.’ and then Brad/William/Bradley ‘laughed to himself, then got on his bike.’
