Brad Pitt, the newest member of Madame Tussaud's, made headlines this week
Even a wax Brad Pitt can melt hearts. The newly unattached actor is the latest celeb addition to London’s famed Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, much to the delight of female visitors. ”All the young ladies are being photographed with him,” says Judy Craig, head of Tussaud’s Portrait Studio, who adds that he appears in ”a nice manly pose.” Pitt wasn’t available to sit for Tussaud’s sculptors, but Craig says the Meet Joe Black star was ”so in demand” that the museum created the statue from photos and research. (Hunk alert: Sittings are planned this summer with both John Travolta and Liam Neeson.) No word yet on how Pitt feels about his synthetic alter ego. ”We sent him a photograph,” says Craig, ”but I haven’t heard his response.” Guess that Gwyneth statue will just have to wait.
