Calls for Brad Pitt Go to New Hampshire

Talk about getting a wrong number. A Concord, New Hampshire man is finding his phone ringing off the hook. People aren't asking for him, they're looking for actor Brad Pitt.

Seventy-seven-year-old Richard Perkins' phone number was published on a celebrity website as a way to reach the one-time "Sexiest Man Alive." Instead, they're getting a sometimes retired teacher who has seen only one Pitt film.

The calls have been coming at random hours, including the middle of the night. To offset this, Perkins said he left his phone of the hook so he could get some sleep.

But his Life Alert system took the dead dial-tone as a call for help. Firefighters burst into his house only to find him sitting in his living room.

Perkins has no idea why someone put his number on the site. Asked if he preferred Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston, Perkins said he liked Jennifer, because he didn't know who Angelina was.
