Ask Brad a question

He’s Hollywood’s most famous father of six and partner to Angelina Jolie. Now Brad Pitt is leading a different sort of troop: a group of American Nazi hunters as Lt. Aldo Raine in the World War II-era, Quentin Tarantino-directed epic Inglourious Basterds. As the actor takes a moment to talk to PEOPLE, here’s your chance to ask him a question about his busy life—and all his loves: architecture, New Orleans and George Clooney. Send us a question, and you could see it featured in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE!

New Interview

BILD caught up with him in a tucked-away Hotel bar in southern France guarded by two bodyguards in Hawaiian shirts. Brad Pitt was dressed all in black wearing sunglasses, suede shoes, unshaven and smiling.

We both wanted a beer but the bodyguards had scared off the waiter.

Brad Pitt: “You brew good beer in Germany.” He laughs. “My sunglasses are good for hiding puffy eyes after drinking.” They are from the 80s.

BILD: How would you rate your film if you were a critic?

Brad Pitt: “Lots of fun! I’m happy with it, because all the actors are great. Each one is a mini star!”

BILD: What does your wife Angelina Jolie think?

Brad Pitt: “She really likes it. She laughed a lot.”

BILD: You play an American soldier who scalps Nazi’s in a hit team and finally kills Hitler.

Brad Pitt: “Yes there’s a lot going on in the movie, we had lots of fun. You have some great actors in Germany.”

Til Schweiger, Daniel Brühl, Christoph Walz, Diane Kruger and Gedeon Burkhard all starred in the film. For a world famous actor Brad is surprisingly normal. He is relaxed, has a friendly voice and is almost humble about his fame.

BILD: Who is the real Brad Pitt?

Brad Pitt: He is sitting right in front of you. There’s nothing else.

Wired magazine

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.”
