It will be a May-December romance between two of Hollywood’s most beautiful people: Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman.
An onscreen romance, that is.
Pitt, 45, and Portman, 28, have been cast in a new romantic comedy in which he will play an aging photographer and she a New York Times food columnist, Variety reports.
The film, in the works at Paramount, is based on the book, “Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry,” by Leanne Shapton.
They are some the hottest stars around, but will audiences like them as a couple … or will it just be weird … kind of like Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in “As Good as it Gets”?
