Brad Pitt's Security Nightmare
Oh wow, this dude is soooo getting fired. So, imagine you're Brad Pitt (fun, right?) and you've arrived a wee bit early for a screening of your new film, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," because you're just so excited to talk about this hotly anticipated film during a scheduled post-screening Q&A. You know, going over plot points in your head and recalling funny stories from the set to share with the VIP-only crowd.
But as you make your way into the theater to watch the two-and-a-half hour film you star in, a security guard grabs you, spins you around and pushes you to the side.
First of all, lucky guard -- not everyone gets to strong arm Brad -- but his luck pretty much ran out there because he tried to physically restrain one of the world's biggest stars from entering his own screening simply because he didn't recognize the actor. Guess Brad's regretting growing that mustache for "Inglourious Basterds" now, huh?
Obviously causing a commotion amongst photographers is nothing new to Brad, but when the security guard saw the brouhaha, he immediately rushed over to stop the insanity -- unfortunately he grabbed and roughed up the wrong guy.
Everything was eventually figured out -- Brad got made his way inside and probably wowed the crowd with tales of reverse aging hijinks.
Update: Brad released the following statement to People.com: "Though they [the photographers] were exceptionally more aggressive than usual - breaking through a security barrier and into a private holding area - ultimately [it was] just another day in the life..."
