Brad Pitt Joins China's Version of Twitter

Brad Pitt has created a Twitter account… in China that is!

The 49-year-old actor has joined the social networking website Sina Weibo and has already sent out a tweet from his verified account.

“It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming …” Brad wrote on his account, which is currently being followed by over 160,000 people.

Brad‘s tweet alludes that he will be visiting China, where he was reportedly banned from in the 1990s after the country was unhappy with its depiction in the film Seven Years in Tibet.

    Angie’s been wanting to go to China, so maybe Brad’s getting his paperwork in order. I wonder if Brad’s going to be filming a movie there? Hmmmm…

    .
    TMZ has the twins on their list and it wasn’t $14MIL. It was $12.3MIL. They said all the money was going to the JPF, so all you have to do is look at the 2008 JPF tax return. There were 2 contributions – one from Angie for $6.1MIL and one from Brad for $6.2MIL (or vice versa). What annoyed me was that they didn’t say that Brad and Angie gave away all the money they got and everybody else kept the money for themselves.
    .
    Also, the $4.1MIL for Shiloh was on the Peeps money. There was another $4-5MIL from Hello for UK, Canada & Australia and other publications around the rest of the world. So altogether they gave away $21-22MIL to charity. Meanwhile, JLo bought 2000 pairs of Louboutins with her $2MIL.

    Brad Pitt hints at China trip
    (AFP) – 13 minutes ago
    BEIJING — Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt made waves on Monday with his first post on Chinese social media, a cryptic message suggesting he would soon visit the country.
    “It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming…”, said the initial entry on the star’s verified account on Sina Weibo, one of China’s hugely popular Twitter-like microblogs.
    It was unclear if the message from the star of “Fight Club”, “Spy Game”, “Ocean’s Eleven” and other films meant that he would be physically coming to China.
    Various Internet movie sites say Pitt was banned from entering the country after starring in “Seven Years in Tibet”.
    In 1997, the state-run China Daily said that Hollywood would “never be forgiven” for a series of films on the region, specifically citing Pitt’s movie, along with Richard Gere’s “Red Corner” and “Kundun”, directed by Martin Scorsese.
    China has long waged a campaign against Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, whom Beijing accuses of seeking independence for the troubled region, and the paper said the films “totally distorted historical facts and events”.
    But Pitt’s Weibo account was an instant hit on Monday, drawing more than 100,000 followers within six hours of his first post.
    “Bring Jolie along”, said one comment, referring to Pitt’s glamorous partner actress Angelina Jolie.
    China imposes strict controls on the Internet and blocks sites popular in the West such as such as Twitter and Facebook.
