E! News has exclusively learned that the much-parodied Chanel No. 5 spokesman has agreed to endorse Cadillac in print ads and TV commercials that will air in China.
Pitt, who a source says will earn $3 million for his promo work, will shoot a spot for the car campaign next week in Los Angeles.
Cadillac had no comment on the hiring, and Pitt's reps have yet to respond to calls to comment.
But lest one think this is just a high-paying job for a random automotive product, E! News has been told Pitt has long kept a Cadillac Escalade in his fleet of vehicles.
"It is the truth. Yup, I'm coming...," he wrote cryptically. Well, not so cryptically, after all.
