Would Brad Pitt Appear on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’?

Brad Pitt is one of the biggest movie stars of all time. He has appeared in some truly iconic films, from Legends of the Fall to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. After a small hiatus from Hollywood, Pitt is back and better than ever, and critics and audiences alike are raving about his newest film: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Still, according to a new report, Pitt could be considering turning his attention from movies to television — reality television, at that. Some tabloids are speculating about Pitt’s relationship with the Kardashian family, and whether or not he is likely to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians

For several years, Pitt was laying low, raising his children with Angelina Jolie and generally avoiding the Hollywood spotlight. After their bitter divorce, Pitt has slowly been stepping out more and more, renewing his friendships with people like ex-wife Jennifer Aniston and co-star George Clooney.

Pitt has also forged a few surprising connections. Recently, tongues started wagging when Pitt was seen attending one of Kanye West’s Sunday Services. Sources reported that it wasn’t the first time that Pitt had attended West’s Sunday Service and that the two had started to form a friendship.

Immediately, fans started wondering whether or not this was the beginning of some sort of collaboration or project between the two. After all, West has built a massive empire between his Yeezy apparel line and the new phenomenon of the Sunday Services. And Pitt is just starting to really focus on his career again.

Some even speculated whether or not Pitt could be filming for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Kanye West is a master of building interest

While neither Pitt nor West said anything about Pitt appearing on the family’s reality show, gossip started running rampant. Some tabloids reported that some of Pitt’s close friends were warning him to “watch out,” and that West and the Kardashian family were looking for ways to keep him in their inner circle so that they could remain the “most talked about people in the world.” 

Those same sources even joked that Kris Jenner could be looking for ways to get involved, and pull Pitt even further into the family’s reality show empire — and even have the actor suited up in West’s clothing line. While it is true that Jenner and West are the masters of publicity, this particular story has some holes.

Could Brad Pitt appear on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’?

In spite of how juicy the story sounds, there doesn’t seem to be any actual evidence to support the idea of Pitt appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In fact, Gossip Cop debunked the story, stating that there never was any source who warned Pitt to stay well away from the Kardashian family.

The story goes further, claiming that Pitt’s only real connection to the Kardashian family is his friendship with West. While Pitt has definitely shown interest in acting on some television projects, stating in a recent interview that he loved the idea of getting to spend more time with characters, and playing with the timelines of a television show, he has never talked about appearing on any reality show.

What’s more, at this point in his career, Pitt can afford to pick and choose his projects very carefully. He will likely only appear in character-driven studies that truly interest him.

For all of its popularity, that description doesn’t exactly fit Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It seems safe to say that this particular rumor can be put to rest.
