Hollywood hunk – and damn good actor – Brad Pitt paid tribute to the late Marco Simoncelli in People magazine’s 2011 “The Sexiest Man Alive” issue.
Pitt, a multi-time winner of the annual oozing sex hunk honors from People, included this in his response to a question about things he didn’t like in 2011: “The loss of no. 58, Marco Simoncelli – my love and respect to the family.”
Class move. And it’s not lip service. Pitt is a longtime motorcycle and MotoGP enthusiast. He has attended Grands Prix, including the inaugural Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix in 2005 at Laguna Seca and also hung out at Valentino Rossi’s old junkyard riding area in Italy.
