    In some newspapers in England (I assume also in other countries) there is a portrait of Brad Pitt being used to promote Chanel N5. I can’t help thinking this is printed too soft, as a higher contrast print would (I feel) improve the message for this image. What do others think?

    It looks like digital B/W hence the softness, despite the softness he starts to look very old in my opinion. Printing the image a little harder to give it an edge would look better. Maybe they were afraid that too much of an edge would scare their target costumers, women.

    On an personal level I prefer the Audrey Tautou ad even though she uses a digital camera it's a beautiful ad campaign and commercial.

    He is almost 50. Not old, but no Spring chicken anymore. He can eat crackers in my bed anytime, though.

    Yeah, but you'd have to smell like Chanel #5 for her too. Not many of us could pull that off very well. Maybe after a day's hunting or shooting at the range, a couple hours at the local pub, and napping a couple hours in an old leather recliner. Then.... maybe.:tongue:

    Brad and I actually have a connection: I played his wife in a movie and he kissed my pregnant belly. True story!!

    And he is the same age as my husband, who came home smelling of redfish today. :smile:

    Tree of Life.

    Filmed 15 minutes down the road in Smithville. After the weird opening creation scene, when you finally see the actors, I'm within the first few minutes. They don't show my face (as I am supposed to be Jessica Chastain's belly) but the GIANT pregnant belly he is hugging is me 8 months pregnant with my now 4 year old!!!!

    I look better than Brad Pitt as far as I am concerned, but I suppose his farts smell better than me.
    Jessica Chastain does seem to a hottie. Was the first time I saw her. After about watching 15 min of the film I walked out and complained to the movie house. I could not hear a thing.
