Shania Twain swaps out 'Brad Pitt' line for Ryan Reynolds at People's Choice Awards

Shania Twain has picked her actor replacement for the Brad Pitt lyric in “That Don’t Impress Me Much”.

In the 1997 song, Twain famously sings about having a car, having a job as a rocket scientist or being Hollywood star Pitt will fail to impress anyone trying to win her attention.

Twain was asked who she would pick if she was writing the song now – and, sadly for Pitt, he’s been bumped off the list.

The musician said that Magic Mike star Channing Tatum would be her first choice.

“It’s Channing Tatum,” Deadline reports Twain as saying in a new issue of Radio Times, adding: “I’m trying to think how I would sing that.”

Twain then performed the line, singing: “OK, so you’re Channing Tatum”, before confirming: “Yeah, that works”.

The singer then hinted that recency bias might have played a part in her choice as she had recently seen Tatum in the new film Magic Mike’s Last Dance.

One star who would no doubt be disappointed with Twain’s decision is Ryan Reynolds.

In December, the Deadpool actor was left surprised when Twain, performing a medley of her hits, sang Reynolds’s name in place of Pitt’s.

A smiling Reynolds, who was visibly shocked to have heard his name, could be seen saying: “Oh my god, me?”
