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.

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 »

“Spider-Man is big in our family. The kids think he’s the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I’d score big with them. … I’m sneaking in the boys tonight [to the premiere of 'Megamind']. I think they will like it, but they are tough critics. … Hopefully they will think Dad’s really cool and better than Spider-Man.”
—Brad Pitt dishes at the premiere of “Megamind” that he decided to voice a character in the flick because he thought his kids would like it. Ahh, kids. Don’t they realize that Brad trumps Tobey Maguire any day of the week? [People] Keep reading »

Can you believe it? The “Jersey Shore” boys are not the celebs responsible for spreading the most viruses. That distinction actually goes to Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and Jessica Biel.
We are talking about computer viruses, of course. Keep reading »
