Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No.5.
The 48-year-old `World War Z` actor will make history as the famous fragrance`s first male model.
According to E! Online, Pitt will shoot his first campaign in London this week.
He will reportedly receive a seven-figure sum for the advertisements that will be release near the end of this year.
The father-of-six follows in the footsteps of stars including Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Lauren Hutton, Estella Warren and Ali MacGraw, who has also represented the women`s scent.
The star and his fiancйe Angelina Jolie recently purchased a new home in the city he is to shoot the adverts in.
The Hollywood pair decided to buy the property - named Whornes Place - while renting it for ё30,000 a month last summer.
Pitt was filming his zombie thriller last summer when they were staying in the capital city`s borough of Richmond with their six children.
The property has an indoor pool and 15th century wooden beams, according to The Sun.
A source said: "Brad and Angelina hold an affection for the UK, so this investment makes sense."
