A few months ago, AutoblogGreen told you about BMW's plan to produce a handful of hydrogen-powered 7 Series sedans that would be unleashed on the public in the hands of a select few individuals. You'll remember they went pretty quickly, and no one was really sure what the criteria was for getting one.

Well, now we know. Apparently your chances for being chosen to participate in the experiment were greatly improved if you were an internationally-known, Hollywood movie star with several million in the bank. Being married to Living with Angelina Jolie doesn't hurt either. That narrows down the pool tremendously, and one name that apparently stood out on the list was Brad Pitt.

Autoblog Green says Pitt was spotted at Tuesday's "Ocean's 13" premiere in Hollywood driving a BMW Hydrogen 7, which could've increased the car's profile with the movie-star-loving public, though likely didn't considering its most identifying mark is a "Hydrogen" badge on the trunk. Members of the Brad Pitt Fan Club likely saw him exit a BMW 7-Series and thought nothing of it. But hey, at the end of the day he's still Brad Pitt, so all is right in the world.
