Actor Brad Pitt has ditched his longtime publicist and will deal with the media on his own - just like partner Angelina Jolie. The Ocean's Eleven star is "taking a break" from longtime publicist Cindy Guagenti and is willing to represent himself to the world's media. The 44-year-old is following in the footsteps of Jolie, who prefers to use the press to her own advantage without the help of a representative, reports New York gossip column PageSix. Guagenti says, "He is on hiatus." She has worked with the star since his breakthrough role in Ridley Scott's Thelma And Louise in 1991.
