Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt is reportedly searching for a gay role to spite his homophobic mother.

According to American tabloid National Enquirer, which is famous for being a dubious source of news, the actor is desperate to teach his mother the error of her ways.

Jane Pitt shocked the gay rights advocate’s fans when she decided to write a letter to a Missouri-based newspaper slamming marriage equality.

The Enquirer reports Pitt’s mother’s ‘gay-bashing fast-tracked the deal’.

It reports a source as saying: ‘It turns out Brad’s actually wanted to play a gay man for years, feeling it would add dimension to his work as an actor.’

After the letter went public, the magazine claimed her son told producers, ‘I’ll do whatever it takes to make this film happen.’

Pitt is a well-known fighter for LGBT rights, contributing $100,000 to the campaign to defeat California’s Proposition 8 in 2008.

He played gay United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker in Dustin Lance Black’s play ‘8’, who came out after ruling Prop 8 was unconstitutional.

Some have argued Pitt also played bisexual or gay in the 1994 movie Interview With A Vampire, in which he has an ‘intense’ relationship with Tom Cruise’s character Lestat.

The National Enquirer did not mention a title, or any specifics attached to a production, so it is unknown whether a project actually exists or whether the story is fictional.
