Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt

We suppose Javier Bardem makes a valid point.

During his Tonight Show appearance on Thursday, the Oscar winner was asked by Jay Leno to explain the man-crush he was recently quoted as having on Brad Pitt

"I mean, who doesn't have it?" Javier said with a laugh. "I had the chance to meet him and he's very nice, very sweet. I mean, great body, great face. I was like, alright!"

But rather than just let such a, er, manly moment go, the newly married actor decided to put those amorous feelings to good use. 

"He was a producer of Eat Pray Love, so I was flirting with him so I could get a job," he explained. "I wanted to make him believe that I could fall in love with him so he would give me a job."

Not surprisingly, it worked. Now Javier's got a little extra spending cash to go and replace that undoubtedly worn-out copy of Troy.
