Brad Pitt angry with Vanity Fair over semi-nude photos

Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt’s representatives have hit out at Vanity Fair magazine after it splashed seminaked photos of the actor on the cover of its December issue.

The photos of Pitt — shown standing in nothing but a pair of boxer shorts and a pair of socks — were taken by artistic photographer Robert Wilson in September 2005 But while Pitt signed a legal release when the photograph was taken, he was oblivious they would end up on Vanity Fair’s cover more than a year later.

“We are very disappointed that Vanity Fair has chosen to put an unautho rised cover on their magazine,” a spokesperson for Pitt said on Tuesday.

A statement from Vanity Fair said Brad Pitt’s managers had been notified on October 5 of the decision to use the photo for its special “art” issue.

The magazine defended the decision, saying it had obtained the right to use all Wilson’s photographs taken as he put together a study of video portraits.

“Vanity Fair decided to do a story on Wilson’s video portraits and obtained rights to the entire collection of photographs from those sittings, which included Pitt’s,” Vanity Fair’s spokesperson added.
