    Why the ‘bad smell’ sneer about Brad Pitt? What’s he done to earn Crikey’s disdain? Me, I think him a good, decent human being and an humanitarian of some generosity and note. Or is it cool to slag off Hollywood stars just because they are, irrespective of what they might do for others? Such pretentious oiks we are, at times.
