How do you say “Fight Club lives!” in Italian?
That’s the question sharp-eyed Radiohead fans were asking themselves Wednesday evening, when Brad Pitt and Edward Norton – costars in the 1999 cult hit – reunited in the V.I.P. section for the band’s Milan show.
Wearing a straw fedora and sporting a mustache and goatee, Pitt left his Chateau Mirival home in the south of France – where he’s awaiting the impending arrival of his twins with Angelina Jolie – late Wednesday afternoon.
The 44-year-old then hopped a private jet to Milan, where he took in the concert with Norton and family friend Marianne Pearl (who Jolie portrayed in the film A Mighty Heart).
Norton has told interviewers in the past that he and Pitt share a passion for Radiohead’s early work. “Brad has definitely been to see the band perform before,” says a source. “He loves [their] music.”
Fans’ photos of Pitt – smiling and proudly showing Norton and Pearl pictures of his children on his cell phone – began circulating on Italian Web sites before the concert was even over.
Following the gig, it seems Pitt did not return to France right away. Both Italian and French news agencies are reporting Pitt bunked down overnight at the nearby home of another famous friend.
That would be George Clooney, of course, who lives 50 miles away in Lake Como.
