Brad Pitt isn't quite ready for the public eye just yet… and we don't blame him!
The actor has reportedly pulled out of all promotional commitments for his new movie Allied amid his messy divorce with Angelina Jolie.

According to The Sun, the 52-year-old is refusing to do any interviews, press junkets, or talk show appearances for the upcoming romantic thriller to avoid speaking about his highly publicized split.
A source told the newspaper:
"This was supposed to be the start of a big campaign push for Brad to finally win an acting Oscar but there's too much controversy for him to risk any publicity. It also doesn't help that there were rumours he had an affair with his co-star Marion Cotillard, which both deny."
While all parties insist there was no affair between Pitt and Marion Cotillard, the fact that Allied is a spy thriller quite similar to Mr. & Mrs. Smith — notoriously known as the film where Brad and Angie got together in the first place — makes for some juicy interview questions we don't blame the actor for skipping out on.

The insider added how many of Pitt's appearances already on the books have been cancelled, claiming:
"Loads of chat show studios are gutted as they had him booked to come on and dozens of journalists have had their interviews scrapped. They are also being briefed not to ask anybody else associated about the film about Brad's personal life."
Apparently, the film's lead actor will be so notably absent, he may not even attend the premiere! The source continued:
"His team look very likely to pull the plug on him even walking the red carpet in Los Angeles. They know it's important he been seen to support the film but this is a huge crisis for him and the current tactic is to lie low. If he does appear, he'll not say a word to any media and sneak in a side door."
Yikes! Sounds like Brad's allegiance still lies with his soon-to-be ex-wife.
