‘Wedding Crashers” Actor’s New Business Fits Together Like A Hand And Glove

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve got to hand it to actor Brad Newman – he’s just launched a business selling hand-shaped aromatherapy pillows.

The 27-year-old actor plays the “Italian Groom” in the movie Wedding Crashers but also created the so-called Aromahand – a terrycloth glove, stuffed with aromatherapy scents including lavender, sage and flax seed.

Newman says he sleeps with it on his pillow the night before casting calls to keep him calm the next day.

This isn’t the first time Newman has started a business. He says he ran the website, during the dot-com boom, and also produced seminars for young adults.

Newman says, “I have that entrepreneurial spirit.”

But he says his first passion is films and hopes his Wedding Crashers gig gets him cast as a leading man.

In his words, “I’d rather work 10 days on a film, than 300 at any other job.”
