Brad Pitt Hospitalized With Flu

Actor Brad Pitt has been hospitalized with a flu-like illness, the actor's publicist said.

Pitt, 41, checked himself into an undisclosed Los Angeles-area hospital Monday night complaining of flu-like symptoms, his publicist Cindy Guagenti said Tuesday. There were no other details and the name of the hospital wasn't disclosed for security reasons.

Pitt perhaps caught the bug while in Ethiopia last week with his "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" co-star Angelina Jolie to pick up the actress's newly adopted baby girl, the second child she has adopted. Guagenti said it wasn't known if the actor contracted the illness while in Africa.

"I think he has the flu," the spokeswoman said.

The ``Troy'' and ``Fight Club'' star separated from ``Friends'' actress Jennifer Aniston in January after 4 1/2 years of marriage and she filed for divorce in March citing irreconcilable differences.

Tabloids immediately speculated over a Pitt-Jolie romance after photos of Pitt, Jolie and her 4-year-old son Maddox walking together on a beach in Africa were published in April.
