Best Week Ever draws our attention to this clip from an interview with Brad Pitt in August, 2009. Maher tries to describe a certain "likability" by the American public, and ends up predicting America's response to Charlie Sheen's "winning" streak.

Maher's exact words to Brad Pitt about this kind of celebrity went like so:

"You cannot do anything that will make America not like you..There are some people like that, you know… Charlie Sheen, I love Charlie he's a friend of mine, and I always kid him, I say ‘You could beat a nun to death on a pile of dead puppies' and America would just go ‘Oh that Charlie, we love him, he's a scamp!'"
