    Brad Pitt Hints He’s Coming to China


    BEIJING–At noon on Monday, Brad Pitt joined China’s massive microblogging service Sina Weibo and issued a short missive as open to interpretation as his Chanel No. 5 ads.

    “It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming…” Pitt posted in his verified account.

    The words sent his Chinese fans into a tizzy. Within hours, his profile gained over 101,000 followers, over 30,000 retweets and more than 13,000 comments on the service that has 400 million registered users.

    With China’s rapidly growing movie market, a Hollywood celebrity popping up in Beijing or Shanghai has become a common sight. Keanu Reeves was seen wandering the old hutong alleyways of Beijing last year.  Months earlier, Gwyneth Paltrow jumped onstage and started singing at a Beijing nightclub.  Even Louis C.K. showed up to do his routine for packed crowd at a Peking Opera theater back in June.

    But Pitt has never been seen in China.  Pitt has been effectively barred from entering the country since he starred in the 1997 film “Seven Years in Tibet,” where he portrayed the young Dalai Lama’s Austrian tutor. At the time the Chinese Foreign Ministry took issue with the film’s sympathetic portrayal of the now exiled 14th Dalai Lama and the negative depictions of Chinese soldiers in Tibet.

    I only like his role in "Mr. Black" and his latest and upgraded wife Angelina Jolie. Or, and his "Legend of the Fall" is pretty cool. He is cute.

     Keanu Reeves (1/8 Chinese Hawaii-breed)- Matrix I, II, III and Constantine. I am sorry, my Sex God is the Gladiator Greek-look bloke in Terminator IV - Salvation, God, just think about him is a great way to go. Oh, the liquified terminator T1000 in Judgement Day is great too.  Ha ha.
