Kathie Lee and Hoda stumped by Brad Pitt's odd disorder

Ever heard of "prosopagnosia?" Neither have Hoda and Kathie Lee.

The ladies had a good laugh on Wednesday thanks to Brad Pitt, who recently told "Esquire" he thinks he suffers from the disorder, which is a fancied up way of saying that he has trouble recognizing people.

It's also known as "face blindness," but as evinced by KLG and Hoda's glee, "prosopagnosia" is a much funnier word to say... or to attempt to. It took them a couple of tries.


"He also talks about a time in his life when he smoked so much marijuana that I don't know how he recognized anybody's face," said KLG. Decent point you make there, Kath.

So if you see Brad Pitt on the street and he doesn't recognize you, that's why.
