Brad Pitt plays up to photographers as he squints at camera flashes and throws his hands in the air during Babylon photocall in Paris

Brad Pitt played up to photographers during a photocall for his new film Babylon at the Grand Rex in Paris on Saturday.

The actor, 59, who cut a dapper figure in a black suit, squinted at the camera flashes and threw his hands in the air before posing for selfies with a drag queen.

He waved towards onlookers and pointed at the film’s title on the press wall and was soon joined by the movie’s director Damien Chazelle on the red carpet.

Set in 1920s Hollywood, Babylon centres around the rise and fall of several ambitious dreamers – including characters portrayed by Brad and Margot Robbie.

Bullet Train star Brad takes on the role of famous actor Jack Conrad, who is known for a party-hard lifestyle, multiple marriages, affairs, and divorces.

While Margot, 32, is overnight starlet Nellie LaRoy who is navigating her way through the industry by self-destructing via drugs, parties and sexual encounters.

Written and directed by Damien, the film shows character Manny Torres (Diego Calva) entering the high-profile world and becoming smitten with Nellie.

It opens with a wild celebrity soiree filled with sex, drugs, nudity and booze – which The Wolf Of Wall Street actress Margot has described as an ‘party-slash-orgy’.

But despite both Brad and Margot being some of modern-day Hollywood’s biggest stars, the pair have both admitted that they haven’t been to a bash that wild off-screen.

‘That wild? No,’ Brad quipped to USA Today when questioned, as his Australian co-star echoed his thoughts.

‘I’ve been to some wild parties, but not on Babylon scale. That’s something else,’ Margot agreed.

The flick features a sensational ensemble cast, including Tobey Maguire, Olivia Wilde, Katherine Waterson, Phoebe Tonkin and many more.

And reflecting on filming, Margot recently revealed she went off-screen to smooch co-star Brad in an impromptu scene , jesting to E! News : ‘How else am I going to get the chance to kiss him?’

Explaining the kiss, she shared: ‘That wasn’t in the script, but I thought, “When else am I gonna get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? I’m just gonna go for it” It was great!’

The blonde beauty also shared a smooch with co-star Katherine Waterson, but added that she wasn’t sure if it had made the cut.

Breaking the boundaries, the highly-anticipated raunchy flick even had the cast worried with its amount of nudity – and whether it was allowed to be shown.

Of the film as a whole, Margot confessed: ‘When I read the script, I was like, ”This is like La Dolce Vita and Wolf of Wall Street had a baby – and I love it!.”

‘But I was like, ”Are we allowed to show that?”

‘There were so many scenes where I was like, a) I have no idea how I’m going to do that, and b) are we going to get away with this?’

Babylon premiered in Los Angeles on December 15, 2022, and was released in the United States on December 23, 2022, by Paramount Pictures. It will hit UK cinemas on January 20, 2023.
