Brad Pitt Is a Tech “Basterd”

Brad Pitt, star of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Inglourious Basterds and committed Nazi-slayer, recently gave an in-character interview to Wired magazine in which he divulged a handful of social networking pointers for those of us that need help.

“Don’t take a picture of your wife’s butt,” Pitt says, in reference to Ashton Kutcher having tweeted a picture of his wife Demi Moore’s butt to the whole world in March. “That’s silly. Take pictures of other people’s wives’ butts.”

Truer words were never spoken, but truth is not always as important to Pitt, like when it comes to stating one’s true income in an online dating profile.

“Everyone lies online. In fact, readers expect you to lie. If you don’t, they’ll think you make less than you actually do,” Angelina Jolie’s baby daddy reveals. “So the only way to tell the truth is to lie.”

Likewise, Pitt supports a bit of harmless, potentially bogus online dating if it keeps you happy.

“Who cares if your Warcraft wife is really a dude,” he jokes. “If it’s good, don’t check under the hood.” 

However, he draws the line when it comes to all this technology impeding on his business in the bathroom.  Pitt says, for instance, that he would never talk on the phone will peeing.

“No, you can’t talk on the phone! Do you want the guy next to you to hear your entire conversation?” Pitt asks. “That’s why you should only text in the bathroom. Just be sure you don’t hit the wrong button and end up putting a photo of your junk on Twitter. Trust me, you don’t want those followers.”

Wise words.
