You'd think when it comes to dating being Brad Pitt would be a big advantage, wouldn't you?
He's won People Magazine's Sexiest Man of The Year, he's been in some of the biggest films of all time, he's fucking loaded and he's name-checked in a Shania Twain song. What's not to like?
However, according to Page Six, now he's single and ready to mingle Mr Pitt doesn't introduce himself as 'Brad', instead choosing to use his real name William when he's chirpsing women in coffee shops.
I reckon he's got this all wrong, the last thing you want to do is be some anonymous 'William' who chats women up in coffee shops - be Brad fucking Pitt and then you'll see some results, surely?
An unnamed source claims to have spotted Pitt's attempts at chatting up a woman at a place called Coffee Commissary in LA.
They said: "He arrived by motorcycle, wearing sunglasses, jeans and a leather jacket." Once in the coffee shop he allegedly got chatting to a blonde woman in line.
"She was acting overly bubbly and looked a little like Kate Bosworth, but it wasn't her," the nosy coffee-drinker said.
The woman introduced herself as 'Lydia', to which Pitt is said to have: "Put out his hand and said, 'Hi, I'm William'." Yup that's right, William - his real first name.
Of course, having one of the most famous faces in the world presents some difficulties when it comes to trying to go incognito, and the woman reportedly replied: "Oh, you look like a Bradley."
Ah, she's got you there, mate. It's got to be difficult trying to be low-key when everyone in the world knows your face.
Perhaps realising that his cover had been blown, Pitt winked at her and said: "Well, that's my middle name."
Refusing to be hoodwinked, as Lydia left she said: "Nice to meet you, Bradley...I mean William." Cheeky.
There's no saying if Pitt managed to exchange numbers with Lydia, but it's fair to say that if he has trouble chatting up women, then the rest of us have got no chance.
