Master milliner Philip Treacy has never been known for his close proximity to reality — after all, the man makes hats for Lady Gaga — or for his acting talents. So, though slightly disappointed, we can’t say we’re all that shocked to hear the mad hatter doesn’t plan on following in Galliano’s footsteps and play himself in the maybe happening Isabella Blow biopic.
No, instead he told British Vogue he would much rather have Brad Pitt do the dirty work. You know, Mr. People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive Ever. For his part, the designer admits his casting wish is a little far fetched — what with Brad’s busy schedule (and all those kids), it might be a scheduling nightmare. Plus the accent is off. But who can fault the guy for trying? If you were in the room where they were casting an actor to play you, wouldn’t you choose Brad over say, a blond Steve Buscemi? No word from the Pitt-Jolie camp. Though we’d love to see it happen — if only because it might entice some other stars (or frosty editors) to follow suit.
