Producer Jerry Weintraub (C) shares a light moment with the cast members, Matt Damon, Geroge Clooney, Weintraub, Brad Pitt, Ellen Barkin and Scott Caan during arrivals for the world premiere of U.S. director Steven Soderbergh's film Ocean's 13 at the 60th Cannes Film Festival on May 24, 2007.

Brad Pitt’s Ocean’s Thirteen co-stars have found the perfect way to avoid unwanted paparazzi attention – they just tell the photogs where Pitt is.

Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney admits that he, Matt Damon and Don Cheadle don’t hesitate to take advantage of the paparazzi’s obsession with Pitt and ladylove Angelina Jolie.

So whenever the photogs start hounding the other stars of the movie, Clooney reveals to Time magazine that they just point out where Brad and Jolie are.

He also insists that the ploy works beautifully.

 "We were at the airport in Italy. So I walk off the plane, and it's 'Hey, Giorgio!' And I go, 'Look! Brad Pitt!' and they're gone," Contactmusic quoted him, as telling the mag.

 Pitt also admits that his co-stars do set him up as a decoy whenever they want to get rid of the media attention.

 "This is not a joke. They used to send me out to take the hits," he tells the mag.

 The cast recently got together at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival where the final movie in the ‘Ocean’s’ trilogy was premiered.
