Brad Pitt wants to be like Valentino Rossi


Brad Pitt tells Riders magazine that he wants to be like Rossi...

What would you rather dream of being – a big-ticket Hollywood star or six-time MotoGP world champ? Brad Pitt, for one, is clear on what he’d rather be. Speaking to Riders magazine recently, Pitt said ‘We are both in the public eye and it is rare for us to have big heroes, but I have one who I put above everyone else – Valentino Rossi. I would give anything to be like him!’

‘He is always cool. He seems to have a calmness which is almost beyond human. He can do the impossible. He looks like he weighs 30 kilos and yet he is able to stick to the asphalt without crashing. He looks like he is dancing when he rides, it is pure poetry,’ says Pitt, who’s obviously besotted with The Doctor’s talent.

Which brings us to the one question that’s probably on a lot of people’s minds. Who has the better ride – Rossi, with his Yamaha YZR-M1, or Pitt, with Angelina Jolie? Hmmm…


Both have red-hot rides, but in the end the YZR-M1 inches ahead by just a tiny bit...
