London, Feb 27(IANS) Brad Pitt has some respite. After losing out on the best actor Oscar, the Hollywood A-lister has been sent a solid dark chocolate bust as a consolation prize from deodorant brand Axe.

An accompanying note read: “We still feel your performance deserves a statue, one that’s a bit sweeter.”
Pitt was nominated for the Academy Award for his performance in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” but he lost out to Sean Penn, who was awarded for his portrayal of a gay politician in “Milk”.
