At last! Celebrity-watchers in Brooklyn Heights were finally rewarded for their patience — and for allowing their neighborhood to be overrun with film trucks —Â and got to drink in the handsome hunkiness of actors George Clooney and Brad Pitt, who are both in the ’hood to shoot the Coen Brothers’ new movie, “Burn After Reading.”
First, Clooney made his long-awaited appearance on Tuesday on Middagh Street. Then, on Wednesday, an entire side of beefcake in the form of Brad Pitt shot a scene in which he appeared to be climbing into our photographer’s backyard.
The movie is actually set in Washington, DC, and has required much of State Street to be redesigned to look like Georgetown (notice the false wall that Pitt is climbing). Ah, the magic (and budgets) of Hollywood!
