I for one prefer to believe that Brad Pitt is palling around with Alia Shawkat rather than, you know, getting down. If it’s the latter, fine, although I’m probably not the only person to express surprise. With Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston in his wake, I guess I never expected that Pitt of all people would join the club of fetching movie-star types whose girlfriends or significant others are…well, a bit outside the mold. Other members of this fraternity include Pierce Brosnan, Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen and Keanu Reeves.
