Pitt Pedals Through New Orleans

After a stunning appearance on the red carpet with the mother of his newborn twins, Brad Pitt has left chilly New York for a sunny cycle ride in the French Quarter in New Orelans, where Pitt and Angelina Jolie own a home.

The actor was spotted riding around yesterday carrying a small black binder with Barack Obama’s photograph on the cover.

Perhaps Pitt is putting together a dossier on the candidate—or maybe just a family photo album, given that the two are distant cousins

Regardless, Pitt enjoyed time sans family, popping into local legendary restaurant Antoine’s, where he was greeted warmly by staff and patrons.
