Hollywood King & Queen, Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, blessed the entertainment industry’s biggest award show with their attendance. Later in the evening Brad Pitt was even honored with an Oscar with his co-produced film ’12 Years A Slave’ winning for Best Picture.
So what do you guys think about these two? Granted, they could show up wearing cardboard boxes and they’d still upstage anyone else walking the red carpet, so don’t know what else you can say here.
We haven’t seen Angie working her A-game in a while, so maybe she threw us a curveball last night and she’s saving her fashion-industry-changing fastball for the Oscars in a couple weeks? We can only hope so!
Angelina Jolie was looking dangerously thin as she left luxury department store David Jones with her daughter Zahara yesterday afternoon. It’s nice to see that Zahara is already enjoying the fruits of luxury as she attends schools across the world—or at least in major cities across the world. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if all of Angie’s kids end up attending Ivy league universities as 15-year-old geniuses. Lucky lil’ buggers!
Seven or eight years ago when Angie was on your worldwide adoption binge, there was a reason I called her kids Adoption Super Lottery Winners! They’re very similar to lottery winners except they don’t have to worry about all the perils of winning the lottery (i.e. your family trying to get their slimy hands on your lottery winnings, your friends hating you because they’re poor & you’re filthy rich, you living wildly beyond your means and subsequently declaring bankruptcy & divorce and then battling years of depression and ultimately dying alone in some dingy alley with your pants pulled down and a dirty meth needle protruding from your private parts—winning the lottery isn’t anything like those lottery commercials, but that isn’t gonna keep me from dropping my hard earned cash on tickets when the total climbs past $500 million).
The 38-year-old, tireless mother is currently holed up in Australia preparing to direct her second film “Unbroken,” which includes the highly regarded Coen brothers as screenwriters (‘No Country for Old Men’ (2007), ‘The Big Lebowski’ (1998), etc). The film stars Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson, Jack O’Connell and chronicles “the life of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II” (IMDb).
God damn, did this kid go through a huge growth spurt in the past six to nine months or what because I don’t remember him being this big. Here’s the last time we posted Maddox on the site (but I’m sure he’s been in public more recently):
Queen Momma Angelina Jolie arrived with her favorite adopted son Maddox on a flight at LAX (we’re assuming they flew on a private jet). The little dude was looking very stylish carrying a large leather bag while wearing a leather jacket, Aviator shades, a V-neck tee and douche bag beanie. It’s possible Angie’s taking him in for an audition or maybe even accompanying him on the set of his debut film—it’s anybody’s guess, but we’re assuming Maddox wants to wring his extensive network & strong arm his way into the Hollywood. Why not, right?

The Berlin premiere of Brad Pitt’s new film World War Z took place at Cinestar movie theater at Potsdamer Platz square. Based on the novel by Max Brooks with an estimated budget between $175-$200 million, the expectations are high for the film to domniate the box office yet odds are they’re setting themselves up for disappointment seeing that film is about stopping a worldwide zombie pandemic. Along with Brad Pitt, the film also stars Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, and David Morse. Look for it in US theaters on June 21st. For more info, visit the World War Z official website.
The actress appeared to be having the time of her life as she walked the red carpet alongside Brad Pitt. Angelina was wearing a beautiful dress designed by Ralph & Russo. This dress has much more more going for it than the black gown she wore at the ‘World War Z’ UK premiere.
As you guys know, the actress recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer. She appears to have fully recovered and Brad Pitt is shamelessly using the buzz surround Angelina’s health issues to help pimp his somewhat troubled new film.
Before I plug a new film review, I want to make a correction to a figure I noted in an earlier post where I stated Brad Pitt’s new film’s budget had ballooned to around $175-200 million from an initial budget of $125 million. Apparently that figure is rumored to be upwards of $400 million! HOLY CRAP. Again, let’s hope people watch this film.
Here’s a snippet from a ‘World War Z’ review in The Telegraph:
The first problem you encounter with World War Z, the new action blockbuster starring Brad Pitt, is how to pronounce the damn thing. Should the last letter be said “zee”, to sound like “three”, or “zed”, to sound like “dead”, or “zzz”, to sound like the audience?
Whichever phoneme you plump for, the Z stands for zombie, and the film contains, on a rough estimate, hundreds of thousands of them. It is based on a novel by Max Brooks, son of the filmmaker and humourist Mel, and it follows Gerry Lane (Pitt), a flaxen-haired former United Nations action man who is recalled to the line of duty when a mysterious pandemic turns citizens of various countries into walking, chomping corpses.

In one of her first appearances following her preventive double mastectomy back in February, Angelina Jolie looked beautiful as she accompanied her hubby Brad Pitt at the premiere of the summer’s blockbuster “World War Z,” a film in which Brad’s not only the leading man, but also a leading producer.
Angie was all smiles and from what we could tell, she looked healthier than we’ve seen her look in the past. Normally she looks sickly thin and coming from a guy who sees a lot of sickly thin models, that means a lot.
On the movie front, sadly for Brad, the production gig wasn’t easy because the film was first budgetted for $125 million, but following on-set drama & a number of production delays, the budget ballooned to around $175-200 million—not including marketing, of course. Let’s hope it performs decently at the box-office because a bomb of this size could really tarnish Brad Pitt’s somewhat clean reputation in Hollywood.
