Brad's Shocking Vanity Fair Cover

Brad's Shocking Vanity Fair Cover

Earlier we posted a video of Brad Pitt hanging out in the rain in his boxers. The video was made by avant-garde artist Robert Wilson last year and was evidently only supposed to be part of his artistic video project. While we were very excited to to see the video turned into a cover image for the December Vanity Fair, it turns out that Brad was not. Unlike most cover boys, apparently he had no idea and was shocked by the news. TMZ reports:

Reps for Vanity Fair tell TMZ, "In a letter dated October 5, 2006, and sent to Pitt care of Brillstein-Grey [Pitt's managers], Wilson informed Pitt that a still image from his portrait was going to be featured in the December art issue of Vanity Fair." A source says that Pitt never saw the letter.

Pitt's lawyers are said to be weighing their legal options. His rep gave the following statement to TMZ: "We are very disappointed that Vanity Fair has chosen to put an unauthorized cover on their magazine. It seriously makes me question their integrity and motives."

A rep for Vanity Fair tells TMZ: "Brad Pitt posed for a Robert Wilson video portrait, and in the photo release (signed by Pitt), agreed to allow Wilson to use the portrait or any images from that sitting in connection with any publicity on Wilson's video project. Vanity Fair decided to do a story on Wilson's video portraits and obtained rights to the entire collection of photographs from those sittings, which included Pitt's."

Most actors can't wait to land a VF cover. Besides, in the name of Art you would think Brad would be OK attaching his name to the story. I guess he just feels like he is a pretty face (and body) to sell issues on the newsstand. Oh poor Brad.
