What’s the deal with actors doing interviews in character? Not that I’m complaining, because I find it generally hilarious, but why are we seeing so much of this lately? A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of seeing Mark-Paul Gosselar reviving the teen-tastic role of Zack Morris on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Then, of course, the past two weeks have been filled with Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno taking over every talk show ever. And this week we’ve come across the latest issue of Wired in which Brad Pitt talks as his character from “Inglourious Basterds.” As much as I’ve enjoyed these interviews, I feel a bit like the celebs are cheating me and every tabloid lover out of learning their juicy personal details. Do you agree, or do you like these interview stunts? Keep reading »
In the August issue of Wired starring Brad Pitt’s aging face, the actor gives advice — in his “Inglourious Basterds” character — on a few topics close to our hearts: dating, porn, texting, and World of Warcraft. And, while we don’t support the wearing of Bluetooth headsets in public, his advice ain’t bad. Keep reading »
He looks quite handsome, though who knows why he’s on the cover but we hope it sells better than that hateful Julia Allison issue. Keep reading »
We have to admit, the gold helmet and gloves are an awesome way to accessorize your mid-life crisis. Hey Brad, is that motorcycle big enough for two? [Hollywood, 7/8/09] Keep reading »
In April, Brad Pitt taped a commercial with a sumo wrestler, and now it’s out. Brad plays the assistant to a sumo wrestler in this Spike Jonze-directed ad for Japanese SoftBank, a telecommunications company. We think the commercial is probably trying to say, “We’ll support you no matter what, even if we have to do the seemingly impossible, like carry a 300+ pound man when his flip-flop breaks.” Keep reading »
The National Enquirer would like us to believe that Brad Pitt snubbed out his younger brother Doug Pitt’s political career by urging him not to run for Missouri Congress, even though he probably would have won the election. Apparently, Brad and Doug work on community charity projects together and if his Republican brother took a seat, their efforts would not only reek of “political cronyism,” and Brad would lose his most trusted confidant. Plus, he was hoping to use Doug’s business smarts in his film production company?
Blah, blah, blah. The important thing is—Brad Pitt has a brother! Why weren’t we already stalking him?! Check him out in the clip above—it’s not particularly exciting, but hey, it’s all we could find. Sure, he’s a Republican, but they can be hot, too. He looks more like Zach Braff than Brad, but he’s got Pitt genes buried deep inside him and we must get them out and make clones. Baby Pitts for everyone! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
