Gingrich: Brad Pitt should play me in a movie
Angelina Jolie better watch out.
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich thinks he’s found the perfect person to play him in a movie about his life: Brad Pitt.
“If Hollywood was going to do a movie about your life, who would you like to see play the lead role?” radio host Rich Stevens asked Gingrich on Wednesday.
“Oh, in my fantasy life? Brad Pitt,” the candidate replied without pausing. “Why not?”
“Is it because you guys look alike?” Stevens pressed.
“No, I don’t look like him at all,” Gingrich admitted. “He’s thinner, he’s better looking, he’s younger. But you asked me if I had anyone who could play me in a movie. Why not go for Brad Pitt???”
“You’ve got to relax and let your imagination soar,” he added.
