“I know it seems extreme from the outside, but I’ve always kind of operated this way. When I know, I know, and why mess around? I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it – this left some indelible mark on me – if I was ever going to do it, that’s the way I was going to do it.”
—Brad Pitt talks about going from zero kids to six kids, three biological and three adopted, all in the span of just a few years. During a press conference for “Tree of Life,” Brad said he’s always wanted to have a big family. Oh, and he also let it slip that he and Angelina Jolie are hoping to do another movie together. Here’s hoping they go for a fresh idea rather than, say, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith 2.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
According to Star magazine, Brad Pitt has been caught in a “nude scandal” with his 23-year-old “Cogan’s Trade” co-star, Bella Heathcote. Allegedly, he was caught undressing the “Angelina-look-a-like” in his trailer by none other than Angelina herself. GASP! Initially, I thought she may be the seventh child Brangelina was adopting (hence the tattoo), but Us Weekly reports that Brad and Bella haven’t even met yet. They are both in the film, but haven’t shot any scenes together. The Aussie actress mentioned that she saw Brad half-naked in “Troy” and thought he was hot and hopes to play his love interest someday. If that’s a “nude scandal,” then I have been involved in many with Johnny Depp. Good work, Star. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Angelina Jolie visited Somali refugees at a camp near the Tunisia-Libya border. But of course it wasn’t the humanitarian work that had people talking. At the camp, Angelina was photographed in a tank top and it appears as though a line has been added to her tattoo which lists the latitude and longitude of where her children were born. This has many people guessing that Angie and Brad are adopting another baby. The new numbers on the tattoo aren’t easy to make out, but the first one appears to be 35 degrees north. Some think this means the couple could be adopting from Algeria.
But there’s an alternate theory. Keep reading »
I was a tad bit concerned when I heard that Will Smith was looking to do a remake of my favorite childhood musical, “Annie,” with his daughter Willow Smith whipping her hair as the iconic orphan. Willow is keeping quiet about the project and when recently asked about it on “Access Hollywood,” demurred, “You’re just going to have to wait.” But there is one detail she let slip. She said that her ideal Daddy Warbucks would be none other than … Brad Pitt. After all, he does have experience with adoption. Keep reading »
In celebrity “journalism,” there are few rules. An Us Weekly article on, say, Jennifer Aniston wanting to adopt a baby could be filled with nothing but quotes from unnamed sources. Cover lines asserting that “Sandra Bullock Takes Jesse Back!” or “Jessica Simpson Is Getting Cold Feet!” often pertain to a story that says something far less OMG, like that Sandra and Jesse supposedly had a pleasant phone conversation or Jessica was spotted looking “sad” one day. But generally, when it comes to children — specifically the children of celebrities — tabloid magazines play it safe, focusing on photos of the tots looking adorable or incredibly wordy stories about their extravagant birthday parties. But not Star! This week’s issue of the magazine features a cover story alleging that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s twins, Vivienne and Knox, have Down Syndrome. A story like this doesn’t just toe the line of inappropriate, it crosses it, loops back around, and crosses it again. Keep reading »
“Just add up a couple things. There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict.’ That doesn’t exist in nature. Something is going on with [her] addiction. Or she’s in recovery. And I don’t see any evidence that’s the case. So we’ve got one person who’s a heroin addict. Which is a chronic lifelong condition, period. We have another person who has said things like, ‘Well, Jennifer [Aniston] was into long-term relationships, that’s just her way of looking at things.’ I mean, that demeaning attitude towards other people’s emotions. Now put those two people together and you have got a really volatile situation. And they’re constantly creating things to weld themselves together. Which is only going to serve to make a more nuclear eruption. There will be some sort of meltdown that will be phenomenal when it does happen.”
– Dr. Drew gives his completely random psychological diagnosis of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s relationship based on, I guess, interviews he’s read of theirs. I’m all for passing judgment on famous people, but this assessment seems based on little tidbits of info taken completely out of context. Stick to what you’re good at, Dr. Drew, which is, uh, what again? [Huffington Post via Dlisted] Keep reading »
Is there an Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sex tape coming down the pipeline? Tragically, no. But porn producer Steve Hirsch, who runs Vivid Video and is the man behind many of the celebrity sex tapes you may or may not have seen, says that’s the ultimate Hollywood porn movie.
“Who would star in your dream sex tape?
Without a doubt, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.”
We’d watch it. [The Hollywood Gossip] Keep reading »
We said it was a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. And this is why we are not big-time Hollywood producers. Brad Pitt sees far more potential in the story of the 33 miners who were trapped underground for more than two months earlier this year. His production company, Plan B—which also produced “Eat, Pray, Love” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”—is close to inking a multi-million dollar deal to the rights to the saga. Apparently, there are just two hold-ups.

Why Vogue scored Angelina Jolie for their December 2010 cover and then photographed her in this awkward pose I do not understand. She looks good; I just don’t get the whole exposed bustier with weird shadowing thing. In any case, the woman has a movie to promote, and that is “The Tourist,” in which she costars with Johnny Depp. In the profile, she reveals that love-mate Brad Pitt is “extremely handsome and the most sexy,” her first son Maddox basically raised her, and tomboy daughter Shiloh recently found a dead bird and asked if she could keep it as a pet. Your daily dose of Brangelina has now been sated. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
