Brad Pitt, George Clooney

Don't be surprised if Brad Pitt and George Clooney have a little tequila on their breath at the Academy Awards.

Sure, we know Mr. Clooney likes to get his drink on, but...

We also know that both men, along with Gary Oldman and Jean Dujardin, received a bottle of top-shelf tequila from fellow Best Actor nominee, Mexican thespian Demián Bichir.

"The note said it was an honor to be among them," the A Better Life star told me at the Independent Spirit Awards. "It is an honor and I was just overwhelmed to be with their names.

"I wanted to let them know that I admire their work and I've been a big fan forever of George, Brad and Gary, and I just met Jean, who is a great guy too," he continued, before cracking, "I want to get them drunk so they can talk only beautiful things about me."

They were nice big bottles of tequila blanco. "I don't drink bad tequila," said Bichir, who was wearing quite the beautiful Piaget watch to the beachfront awards show. "I drink only the best."

Well, you deserve it. Have fun at the Oscars, Mr. Bichir!
