He’s always a festival favorite, and Brad Pitt was in fine form as he attended the 65th Cannes Film Festival premiere of his new movie “Killing Them Softly” today (May 22).
Joined by his costars, the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” star looked dapper as he worked his magic on the fans and paparazzi outside the Palais des Festivals prior to the screening.
Making for quite the site to be seen, other celebrities packing the glitzy red carpet included a red hot Irina Shayk and her model gal pal Karolina Kurkova, as well as Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson, Sean “Diddy” Combs, tennis ace Novak Djokovic, Kelly Brook, Alec Baldwin, Cassie, Michelle Rodriguez and Jeremy Irons.
When asked if he was concerned about the level of violence in the film and its affect on his kids, Brad explained, “Not at all. Violence is an accepted part of the gangster world. I’d have a harder time playing a racist than some guy who shoots another guy in the face.”
Pitt added, “Ever seen them butcher a cow for hamburger? It’s incredibly brutal and violent. We live in a very violent world.”
Following her much-talked-about appearance in Playboy, Lindsay Lohan took over another cover gig by gracing the front page of the January 2012 issue of Maxim Australia.
