Brad Pitt 'ego' bruised in crash

Hollywood star talks candidly about his rush-hour prang

HOLLYWOOD ACTOR Brad Pitt said he's rather embarrassed about his recent motorcycle accident, which occurred in the Los Angeles rush hour last week.

The film star fell off his motorcycle last month after a photographer reportedly cut him up in rush-hour traffic.

"I had a little mishap. No injuries, except my ego," joked Pitt.

"I was trying to get away from some paparazzi and instead gave them a good story. It was my favourite bike, so that is really sad."

Pitt said he's on the lookout for a new motorcycle while he's in Japan promoting his latest flick, Inglourious Basterds.
