Brad Pitt has been excused from jury duty in Los Angeles.
“You just can’t stick Brad Pitt in a jury box and expect 11 jurors to ignore him,” L.A. attorney William Lively shared to MailOnline about the 51-year-old actor. “It’s only natural that those jurors would be watching to see how Brad reacts to what’s being said and that they could be influenced by his opinions once the jury goes behind closed doors to render a verdict.”
William added, “It’s one of those things where [it's like], ‘We’re not going to use you because it’s going to end up being about you.’”
Another source shared, “Brad was hoping he might get picked to serve on a short case. But the problem was, he would actually be required to serve for as long as it took for the case to be decided.”
