Brad Pitt's Exclusive Interview on the Bodyguard Controversy

Brad Pitt's Exclusive Interview on the Bodyguard Controversy

Brad Pitt gave an exclusive interview to NDTV (New Delhi Television Limited) late last week, speaking out against the the bodyguard controversy. Brad was interviewed by NDTV’s Managing Editor Barkha Dutt and sat alongside Indian theater and film actor, Irfan Khan. Watch the first 8 minutes below! Part II after the jump… Thanks, Alexanderina!!

Here’s an excerpt of what Brad had to say: “This is not what Angelina [Jolie] and I wanted. This contradicts the message of the film we are trying to make. Angelina and I have a multi-racial family, we want them to respect and understand different religions. Maybe we should have explained our intentions when we first got here. We would not hire anyone who is racist or who would hurt or push a child.”

UPDATE :: Part III added after the jump!

    Yeah, your pants!

    Thanks for the video JJ!!

    raqchel:

    You’re so right. A poster before yours already has a snarky comment re the interview so you know after a few posts this thread will go downhill — we must not allow that!!! If Brad had not said anything, then everyone would say that his bodyguards did do something. He HAD to go and defend his employees, otherwise he’s an employer who’s not worth his salt.

    By the way, he still so GD hot!!! And I am so pleased that Irfan Khan appeared with him on the interview.

    And of course the same nay sayers would be saying something was “fishy” if he didnt address the issue.
    They are soo boringly predictable.

    Brad did the right thing. He is an honorable man.

  • Peaches

    Leets keep the post positive. If people just ignore the negative post everything will be okay. I know it is hard some times but I hate seeing post that can have good dialogue go to the dogs.

  • part III

    Where is part III? That is the part I am dying to see.

  • Oldie

    Hi JJ. Is there a third part?

  • bamzs 4-ever

    Thank you Jared and Audrey for the new thread and video! Thank you Alex!

  • Anon

    part III & Oldie…….it says beneath the 2nd one that he’s still uploading it. Patience as I’m sure it will be soon.

  • The real lou

    Thanks Jared for the interview!I just loved how Brad smiled when he said “to be with my kid’s”Please let’s ignore the hate today and keep things on the postive.

  • traveller

    I envy his bodyguards. The company I work for never stands up for it’s employees. Wish I worked for Brad. At least he’d have my back.

    He can have my front too, if he wants. :-)

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared and Alexanderina. I am glad that BP cleared up the matter. It seems to have been an incident that was totally blown up by the media and the paps. The Paps now are so aggressive with total disregard for people’s rights. They have begun to create the news and slant it in their favor. People can see this on all the Paps blogs that have sprung up. I am sure that this incident will not affect the message in the film nor dishearten BP and AJ from continuing their humantarian work. Best wishes to BAMZS and safe travel.

    Very well said bdj, I concur.

    I hope they are somewhere right now where they can have some alone time. I think it may be a good sign that no new photos have shown up yet.

    HA HA HA! What a funny comment. So true, though. Can you imagine Brad as your employer? What a hot hot man! But ooops, Angelina I’m pretty sure will dice and slice me if I so much as look at her man the wrong way, and who can blame her?

    Thanks again for the interview, Jared, Audrey and a special wave to Alexandrina!!!

    Maniston and Anon:

    Don’t give up, guys. I think our excellent and wonderful Jared just cleaned up the thread again, so we don’t need to worry about haters and naysayers, we can just drool over the McDreamy and McSteamy combined — BRAD PITT!!!

  • Alexanderina

    Guys just ignore the haters, they are not worth our time or our energy.

    BTW: You guys don’t have to thank me I just wanted to share the video with you guys, Jared is the one that did all the work by downloading it and posting it. I think it is a great interview and Brad is so damn HOT :)

  • crybabyAniston

    Thanks Jared and Alexandria for sharing the first part of Brad’s interview. Whoa, Brad looks very, very hot…dayum. I must be a cultural thing in India…this bring idols down to taste humility. I’ve read story where other Indian celebrities have been treated the same way.

    Jared, are we going to see the part 3 & 4?

  • phie

    If I were Angie and Brad I will also speak for them because we all know they’re just doing their job protecting BAMZS family.

    I myself also envy BAMZS bodyguard and assistant they got a chance to be with them, fly and tour with them and sometimes eat in one table. I just cant imagine how wonderful it will be… heheheh wishful thinking!!!!! :)

    I agree ignore hte hater because they dont know what they are talking about!!!!

    Thank you berry …
    Pitt never answered her question and he did sound petulant and ill rehearsed for his little speach.

  • asaragena

    looking says and berry says are two peas in a pod. Opinionated in their own minds, so why are you both here? Huh? Those negative vibes make you feel happy? Biatches…..

    Thank you JJ for the interview. Can’t wait to hear the rest. Brad is “Great!” He will get another “Sexiest man Alive.” It’ll be his third. I read somewhere that
    the family are on their way home :)

  • asaragena

    Cliniqua,

    Yep, Kramer’s rant is on all of the blogs. He is one very unhappy and bitter man. Sure he got heckled but he sure can’t handle it….

    Cruise wedding was ‘all for show’
    NICK PISA
    IN BRACCIANO
    scotsman.com

    HOLLYWOOD stars Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were already married when they tied the knot in a spectacular £1 million wedding at a fairytale Italian castle, it emerged yesterday.

    Cruise’s agent revealed the couple had a legal ceremony in America before flying to Italy, as the Church of Scientology service is not recognised there.

    Arnold Robinson, Cruise’s agent, said they had “officialised” their marriage in Los Angeles before flying to Italy – prompting accusations Saturday’s event was just a publicity stunt.

    Residents also spoke out against the star after he failed to acknowledge the thousands of fans by getting out of his car or making a public appearance outside Odescalchi Castle at Bracciano, north of Rome.

    Loredana Ruggiero, a fan, said: “I waited outside all day and virtually all night. It was cold and rainy and then in the evening it was foggy and I didn’t see them once.

    “It’s a shame as we had made them so welcome. They could have got out of their cars or waved from the castle, but instead they didn’t acknowledge us at all. I feel really snubbed.”

    Mayor Patrizia Riccioni also hit out, saying: “It would have been nice for them to stop and wave at the townfolk.

    “They welcomed them with open arms and put up with a lot of inconvenience over the last few days so it would have been nice if they had made a gesture.

    “The citizens are upset that the mayor of Rome was invited and the mayor of Bracciano wasn’t – they have also asked me to reconsider giving the couple honorary citizenship.

    “It’s too early to make a decision on that, but all I will say is that the cherry on the cake would have been for them to acknowledge the people of Bracciano.

    “Nevertheless, I have nothing against the couple, to whom I am very grateful for all the international publicity. It’s likely it was just a slip-up by the organisers of the wedding.”

    Celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Brooke Shields and Jim Carrey flew in for the event at the 500-year-old, ivy-covered castle.

    Holmes arrived first, followed by guests in a series of blacked-out minibuses.

    Cruise arrived at 4pm and the wedding took place at 6pm in the Sala dei Armi (Hall of Arms).

    The ceremony angered the local priest, Father Nicola Fiorentini, who rang his bells for evening Saturday Mass longer and louder than normal before the wedding began. He said: “It wasn’t a wedding at all. It was all just for publicity. I can’t believe such an event was allowed to take place in the castle. A pope once stayed there and now we have all this. It’s shameful and an offence.”

    The wedding finished just after midnight, following a firework display that was largely blanketed by the thick fog that descended on the castle.

    The couple flew out of Italy early yesterday aboard a private jet and headed to the Maldives on honeymoon.

    i am struck by how calm he always is in all of his interviews.

    I wonder what went through his mind when Irfan Khan paused & referred to him as “Angelina’s boyfriend”. I know they don’t feel the need to get married but it probably bothered him somewhat to be referred to as her boyfriend when he’s much more than that. He should have said “Yo, Irfan. I am her baby’s daddy” :)
