Brad Pitt offers some cell phone and online etiquette tips when it comes to twitter, online dating and text messaging.

Wired magazine asked Pitt what he thought of tweeting a picture of his wife’s butt like Ashton Kutcher did of Demi Moore. He responds “Don’t take a picture of your wife’s butt. That’s silly. Take pictures of other people’s wives’ butts.”

As for online dating, the ‘Inglourious Basterds’ actor thinks that lying about how much money you make on your profile is accepted and encouraged. “Everyone lies online. In fact, readers expect you to lie. If you don’t, they’ll think you make less than you actually do. So the only way to tell the truth is to lie.”

Wired also asked Pitt in their “Ask a Basterd” article: Can I talk on the phone while taking a whiz? He answers, “No, you can’t talk on the phone! Do you want the guy next to you to hear your entire conversation? That’s why you should only text in the bathroom. Just be sure you don’t hit the wrong button and end up putting a photo of your junk on Twitter. Trust me, you don’t want those followers.”

For more from the ‘Inglourious Basterd,’ check out Pitt on the cover of Wired magazine July 21.

Make It Right

Mike Holmes managed to snag an A-list guest star – more like an A-plus, really – for his two-part TV special, Holmes in New Orleans, airing tonight and tomorrow at 9 p.m. on Global, to be followed Thursday by the first of a six-part spinoff series, to run consecutive Thursday nights at 8 on HGTV. Brad Pitt shows up early – tonight, in fact – in the new documentary chronicling the unprecedented rebuilding efforts of the Make it Right Foundation. As Holmes himself did in the Pitt-initiated project’s formative stages. It really all started … well, with Hurricane Katrina, the 2005 disaster that flooded almost 80 per cent of the historic city of New Orleans, taking more than 1,700 lives. Unlike many similar celebrity campaigns, Pitt’s resolutely pro-active Make it Right Foundation got right down to the business of rebuilding homes for Katrina’s many displaced survivors. All he needed was an experienced expert to oversee the effort. And as it happened, our own Holmes held the trademark for the “Make it Right” title, and has of course long shared Pitt’s commitment to charitable humanitarian action. Read more. Thanks Sandra. Is anyone able to record this program for SB in any way? Please contact me.

So, we have Brad Pitt and Mike Holmes in the same room. We understand the majority of females witnessing this scene probably would be more interested in Mr. Pitt. He is a famous, hunky Hollywood actor, after all. But we’re betting a lot of males would be far more interested in Mr. Holmes, who is known for his trademark overalls and his ability to save homeowners from renovation nightmares. Man-crushes all around! And truth be told, we know plenty of handy, hammer-swinging females who are infatuated with Mike Holmes, too. The notion of having Pitt and Holmes in the same room is not just a notion, by the way. It actually occurs in the two-part special Holmes in New Orleans, which airs on consecutive nights, Tuesday and Wednesday, on Global. Read more. Thanks Gabriella.
