I pride myself on my vast knowledge of celebrities, particularly their love lives. Ever since my grandmother handed me a tattered issue of The National Enquirer as a young lass and affectionately called it “The Trash,” celebrity gossip has been my guilty pleasure. So, I’m always more than a little surprised when I find out two stars dated and no one bothered to tell me. This morning, I was perusing a great Tumblr called “Old Loves,” featuring photos of celeb couples who once dated, and found eight I had no idea about. Keep reading »
“I’m still a bad girl. I still have that side of me. It’s just in its place now. … It belongs to Brad.”
– Angelina Jolie‘s public image may have settled down, but she’s still got a wild side reserved for Brad Pitt’s eyes only. I find this sentiment super hot and romantic because it suggests that while Jolie has grown up and mellowed out, the part of her that was genuinely “bad” — and not just acting out for attention’s sake — is still alive and well. She just chooses reserves it for someone with whom she shares real, all-encompassing intimacy.
Angelina also says in this upcoming interview with “60 Minutes” (airing Sunday) that she lucky to have survived her younger, wilder days. More, after the jump! Keep reading »
I definitely don’t consider myself an expert on marriage, but by virtue of being a semi-expert on celebrity marriages — with an emphasis in “rumors surrounding the cause of their demise” — I have learned some valuable lessons about matrimony. For example, part of figuring out your compatibility in the long-term with your potential spouse requires asking a few simple but crucial questions. Questions these seven celeb brides failed to ask. Don’t make the same mistake!
Some of today’s biggest stars had some seriously scary starts — by kicking off their careers with horror movies!
Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Goerge Clooney and more all had early roles battling Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, vicious furballs, creepy serial killers and, in Jennifer Aniston’s case, even evil leprechauns.

“It’s shameful how little I know about baseball … I’m amazed they let me do this movie. Baseball and I didn’t get along that well. I wrestled one year [in high school]. I dove one year. Everything but baseball.”
—Brad Pitt talks to Sports Illustrated about his new movie, “Moneyball” (which opens this weekend), the true story of an Oakland A’s manager who turned his team around by recruiting bargain players rather than going after the same ones every other team wanted. So what made Brad want to do a flick about his least favorite sport? “I’m a sucker for the underdog story,” he explained. [People] Keep reading »
“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
– Brad Pitt opens up to Parade about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston. Listen, I love Brad and Angelina Jolie as much as the next celeb-obsessed romantic, but, like, does he have to pour salt in Jen’s wounds? I know it appears like she’s happy and all, but I would be annoyed if a dude who left me was telling some magazine that life with me was boring. We get it, Brad. Life got way more exciting when Angelina — and her knives and her tattoos and her fertile womb — came along. [Parade]
UPDATE: Brad Pitt apparently thinks his words were misinterpreted. See what he told Reuters, after the jump… Keep reading »
I’m pretty fascinated by the tale of the 36-year-old man who broke into Celine Dion‘s house in Montreal. The dude apparently got in the house by jumping a fence, opening an unlocked car door, and rummaging for a garage door opener. (Note to Celine: Always lock your car doors, lady. Seriously.) Interestingly, this guy didn’t break in to steal anything. No, it seems more like he felt like he belonged there. “He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath. He even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge,” a police spokesman said. He even seemed genuinely surprised when police officers arrived on the scene. “The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: ‘Hey, guys what are you doing here?’”
This reminds me a lot of the infamous Brad Pitt stalker. Keep reading »
“I had the flu. I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way. [Brad read it and] said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.’ … It was something I didn’t trust out of my hands, so by default I ended up putting myself in as director. I’ve never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people’s words. Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong.”
—Angelina Jolie talks to Vanity Fair about penning the script for “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and deciding to direct the film herself. Fascinating story. But to me this is a study in how different people can hear very different things in the exact same words. Angelina obviously took Brad Pitt‘s reaction to her script to be encouraging. But if my significant other said to me that something I wrote was “not that bad,” I would take it to be his way of telling me it kind of sucks and needs a lot of work. Perhaps it’s time for one of us to reframe? [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
The lovely Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are on the latest cover of New York magazine, talking about their movie “Moneyball” that opens on September 23rd. Brad looked kinda sexy on the cover—sort of a reversion to his “Legends of the Fall” self. However, inside, I was deeply troubled with this image. What the heck is going on with his hair? After the jump, some names for Brad’s new hairstyle. Which we’re sure will catch on as hardcore as The Rachel. Keep reading »
Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith aren’t the only parents in town who can turn their oldest son into an action star before his 12th birthday. Apparently, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have the same path in mind for Maddox Jolie-Pitt. Brad has apparently named Maddox for the lead role in “Battling Boy,” his production company’s adaptation of a graphic novel about a kid who is the son of a god. The movie is on track to be in theaters by 2013. I could squawk, call this nepotism, and say, “Hey Brad, let some other kids audition,” but the truth is that I’ve always thought Maddox was the awesomest with his mohawk and rad style. I’ll just hope Shiloh is next for the action star treatment. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
