  • Jo

    Brad is sooo damn hot! And now he has found the woman of his life and they want both a big family with more children! Angie and Brad look so right for each other!!!

  • kidi

    I could eat that little girl with a spoon. When she’s older, she’ll appreciate that mom and dad took the picture of her next to the nice man–ya think?

  • kitty

    Brad is so kind and down to earth. I mean he don’t have to do that. lucky fans. I think they are Japanese fan, Japanese fan tend to be die heart and very devoted.

  • piyutra

    CUTE CUTE CUTE :DMY BRAD IS A GREAT MAN, I ADORE HIM!ANGIE AND THE KIDS ARE SO LUCKY !!!

  • medulla

    HI everyone.Thanks for the pic JJ.When ANGIE said what country what race a balance for MAD & Z about the adoption, people took it futher and turned it around the wrong way as always but I think we all know it’s not about racism, it’s not about photo op for good PR it’s about her passion for children.I think BP & AJ are giong to have 6 kids, 2 bio and 4 adopted. I think the balance she means that they will adopt another Asian boy to identify with MAD and another African baby girl to identify with little Z that’s just my own opinion.

  • +++

    Brad is so cute, look at that smile. He is so hot and adorable. lucky gal Angie!

  • ela

    i hate brad with angelina jolie,but in this pic brad looks really cute cute.

  • lookwhaticando

    I love this guy, Brad is just too awsome. I would love to be able to take a picture with both him and Angelina. Well maybe someday. He is looking hot as always

  • em

    For Brad to take time and give this family something to remember is a reflection of how he is a great guy. Brad even removed his helmet before the picture taking. No moviestar complex and a genuine smile for the camera. Angie is so lucky to have Brad in her life and vice versa. Despite their detractors, worldwide they have more supporters.

  • lookwhaticando

    # 9 | medulla =====================That sounds logical to me, maybe that is what she meant.

  • lookwhaticando

    And there is always something that seems a little shy about him, he has a slight shyness, that makes him even more sexy and hot, and likeable

  • observer

    Asian boy? Or an Asian girl just like the one in the picture here. And an Africa boy. And then a Caucation boy. :)

  • observer

    I think he wanted to make sure that he wouldn’t look like posing as a husband in the picture. :)That looks like a sweat modern-day Japanese husband taking the picture of his wife and daughter with BP. The mother must be a fan.

  • anon

    Angelina is very lucky to have BRAD.

  • Alexanderina

    # 3 | kidi | – DittoThanks JJ for the new Thread and the pictures

  • Alexanderina

    # 18 | anon | – ITA but he is also very lucky to have Angelina as well

  • yup

    This is the most expression I’ve seen on this man’s face in over a year. Interesting that he looks happiest when he’s not being drug around behind AJ at an airport or banished ouside the "African compound" to play with the children" (he didn’t look happy then either) This man in true hollywood through and through despite the ticket he brought from AJ’s crotch to board the humantarian train. She’s long since cut him off….it was used as bait, he bit and is now stuck. One can only pretend to be something they ARE not for so long before blowing up. Whatch for the fireworks.

    BABEL REVIEW Sunday, June 11, 2006divided we fall http://fishbowlfilms.blogspot.com/2006/06/divided-we-fall.htmlAs told in the book of Genesis, the story of the Tower of Babel…All mankind unties together and decides to build a tower that reaches to the heavens so that they can be like God. Due to their arrogance and blasphemy, God curses man, making them all speak different languages, there fore causing mass confusion and stopping the construction of the tower. No one can communicate and they spread out around the world.BABEL is the new film from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS) and his collaborator, Guillermo Arriaga who wrote both of his previous films as well as this new one. This is the third part of a planned trilogy of films involving multiple storylines, loss, confusion and redemption that show the connection between all of the characters involved. This film premiered last month at the Cannes Film Festival where it won the Best Director prize.BABEL is a look at four different stories that take place all around the world and have both literal and thematic connections to each other. The title refers to the confusion that fills the entire world motivated not only by a language barrier, but every difference that we have with our fellow man. These differences include language, culture, borders, and disabilities. This confusion leads to fear and misunderstanding that leads to violence and tragedy. I don’t want to get into the specifics of the four stories, but they are all equally interesting and engaging, so it did not matter to me that their connections were not obvious right away. The people and their journeys entranced me. I would recommend going into this film knowing as little as possible about the plot and the circumstances that these people go through.The performances in the film are fantastic, but there are two standouts. The first is a young actress, Koji Yakusho, who plays a young girl in Japan that is deaf and mute. You feel her frustration, pain and desperation as you follow her story. The other performance and the best of the film is delivered by Brad Pitt. He will be the marketing key to the movie as he is the only real movie star, but he is incredible. The range of emotion and realism that he conveys will catch you off guard and will surely be remembered come Oscar season. Inarritu is an incredible talent as a filmmaker and it is clearly evident here. His style and hand held approach puts you into all of the stories so that you can immediately identify with them. While the stories jump back and forth in both time and location, I never felt lost or confused, just captivated. All of the stories have a literal connection, but the one that stuck with me was the thematic connection. By highlighting all of our differences and showing how they can tear us apart, he really shows how we are all the same. Human beings, despite their differences in language, culture, boarders and disabilities, are all linked and similar. BABEL is a somber movie that seems to dwell in the misery and desperation of its characters, but I think there is much more to it than that if you let it. There is a hope and a call for understanding so that our differences do not continue to tear us all apart. For me, this is a movie of unity at its core and I really hope that people can keep an open mind while watching it. It will stay with you long after you leave the theater and give you plenty to think about.

Brad has finally found himself after 7 years of wasting his life. He wanted to be a father, he is now a father and will always be a father. SHILOH is the realization of his life and his dreams.

  • yup is yapping

    # 21 | yupyup, what are you yapping about. you probably don’t even make sense to yourself. As you say time will tell. It certainly did with his relationship with X.

  • Paul-ann

    I love Brad Pitt, I wonder how any one can tell what is truely in his heart and in his soul, no -one relly knows what goes on btwn a man and a woman.

  • uh huh

    I’d agree, he doesn’t look all that happy. Although I honestly do believe he loves the kids-who couldn’t love them? they’re all so cute and innocent…but I don’t think they would be having a relationship right now though if it weren’t for the kids. I think Brad is your typical midwestern guy-content to be happy with a wife and a home and average, normal existence. Little league and all that stuff. I seriously doubt he’s the globe trotting humanitarian Jolie wants to be. It’ll be fun to watch:)! I’m just honestly worried for those babies-they will undoubtedly be the ones to deal with all this.

  • To First Yup

    Ted C – E Online sources agree with you LOL Child Star Confidential: When early fame goes sour; 10pJUN222006 Keeping Up with the Smiths"By the time that child learns to walk, she’ll be on to somebody new."–A very close colleague and chum of current Brad Pitt squeeze, Angelina Jolie, regarding the latter’s expected duration with the father of her new child, ShilohJeez, I swear. Ran a silly little item the other day about how Jacqueline Bisset (who had a small part that was later cut in Mr. and Mrs. Smith) stood up for Jolie, saying she and B.P. did nothing untoward during filming. You would’ve thought I’d run a blurb from Dubya saying Laura doesn’t dye her hair.Readers were outraged. Smith sources were appalled. Aniston campers were apoplectic with disbelief that I had printed such nonsense. Of course Bisset’s going to defend Jolie, everybody bitched to moi, she’s the gal’s godmother!Which, of course, is true. I swear, ever since I cut off my highlights, I’ve been acting blonder and blonder, how is that? Regardless, kinda glad I did not mention the obvious connection, as it got me the following blabbings from those who–unbelievably–are in Camp Jolie:"She’s the most charismatic woman I know," relayed a Jolie confidante who has marched alongside A.J. much longer than has Brad Pitt. "She gets what she wants. Always. But when she’s done with you, she’s done.""[Bisset]‘s just trying to speak up for Jolie," replied the Jolie juicer, when I asked why Jacqueline seemed so hell-bent on having us all believe Brad and Angie were, indeed, virginal throughout the making of their shoot-’em-up pic. "Because nobody else will."Really? Certainly, many folks are currently superbusy singing Saint Angelina’s praises for all her charitable efforts, but yeah, come to think of it, don’t hear too often how exquisitely mannered Ms. J. was during filming. As far as Jen’s hubby at the time was concerned.Wonder why. Good luck, there, Mr. P.!——————————–

  • not again

    # 39 | yupagain Wow, I didn’t even really have to try and you started to foam at the mouth. Is that normal for you or do you just have a lot of hate for people in general? Never mind. I’ll just make my own assumptions on that one. Really, hon, calm down. It’s not good for you to be so angry.

He wants a life with a purpose … and he finally found it in Jolie.

  • uh huh

    #45FYI, Brad was quoted saying that he does not want to spend the rest of his life watching television. He wants a life with a purpose … and he finally found it in Jolie.Really? He said he found it in Jolie? Where was he quoted saying this? I’m just curious, because until announcing the birth, they were denying being together, yeah?

  • Frenchy

    # 21 | yup What makes you think that Brad is evil like you? Everything you state is what YOU would do. Brad is a very loving & compassionate man whose has been seeking for years his kindered spirit. He found Angelina. By the way Brad was on the humanitarian "train"years ago. His documentary film God Grew Tired of Us : The Lost Boys of Sudan won anaward at Sundance this year and will be released in the fall. This movie was made 2 years ago. Can you see why he fell for Angelina? They both have similar interests.

  • me

    In hollywood there is no such thing as a normal existence for a midwestern boy. And I doubt his life with maniston was typical for a man from the midwest either. Brad rejected that midwest lifestyle as soon as he went to hollywood. He expanded his view of the world, may be some of you should too.And isn’t Ted C the one who said Brad wouldn’t marry maniston. Yeah, so much for his sources. Ted’s time has past.

  • FYI

    Really? He said he found it in Jolie? Where was he quoted saying this? I’m just curious, because until announcing the birth, they were denying being together, yeah? # 46 | uh huh ——————–SHILOH is the bond that will bind them together. Jolie is the mother of his kids.

  • Original jpf

    # 27 | yup1 Instead of looking at all those pic’s of Brad Pitt looking as you say "unhappy." how about you pull that box from beneath your bed filled to the brim with pictures of him grinning ear to ear, smiling like he’s the happiest cat in the crowd because he’s all hugged up and wrapped around the prom queen (ever notice how EVERY pose is the same?) and how all those teeth gleaming, ahd handholding had to be a sure sign of "head over heels/heels over head in love, and it won’t EVAH end."Yeah, 24/7 smiles to go with all 24/7 the PDA-ing translates into what again exactly?jpf
