Obama wary Pitt’s endorsement may make him look ‘too Hollywood’

Obama’s advisers fear that Pitt’s endorsement may cause their candidate to appear to be “too Hollywood” because he already has the backing of George Clooney and Matt Damon.

They, however, said that Pitt was “a great guy”.

Pitt’s spokeswoman has confirmed that the actor is not supporting any politician’s presidential campaign.

“I double-checked with Brad, and he has no affiliation with a candidate at this time,” the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

However, speculations are rife that Obama’s advisers may change their mind about fielding Pitt in their support, as he has fallen 30 points behind Hillary Clinton in the polls.

“If Brad Pitt wants to campaign for Obama, the only challenge will be deciding who staffs him,” Jen Psaki, Obama’s deputy press secretary, said. (ANI)
