Brad Pitt has said he feels honoured to be up for the Best Actor Oscar for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
He was at the Paris premiere of the film with his stunning wife Angelina Jolie last night and told reporters: "
When I started out, my Gods, so to speak, were Gary Oldman, Sean Penn and Mickey Rouke and so it's a real honour for me to be sitting at the same table and mentioned in the same way with these fine actors."
Both Penn and Rourke are up for the same award as Pitt for their own acting in Milk and The Wrestler.
Benjamin Button is directed by David Fincher (Fight Club/ Seven) and is up for 13 Academy Awards at the ceremony next month.
