This is quite amusing. No doubt Mr. Pitt is and has been one of the best looking celebrities for decades. He has real star power and a lot of people like him. When Toyota approached him to make an ad, no one could've thought that the Malaysian government would ban it because Pitt was too handsome.
The government said that the ad was an insult to Asians, and that his looks would plant a sense of inferiority among Asians. When asked about it, the deputy information minister said, "why must we use their faces in our advertisements? Aren't our own people handsome enough?"
