Pitt Wants His Privacy

Pitt Wants His Privacy

Brad Pitt got fed up with paparazzi again yesterday afternoon as they were following him around L.A. Brad, 42, stepped off his bike and confronted photographers again, asking them to give his family space while they grieve over the loss of Angelina Jolie‘s mother Marcheline Bertrand. Earlier this week, Brad Pitt snapped back at paparazzi saying, “You guys are unbelievable.”

    I feel for Angie, but the world is cruel, if brad needs privace he must become a doctor, a lawyer, a dentist……..

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    If they can make him snap they can make anyone snap. I am sure this only incites them further. They seem like a creepy, creepy bunch. I loathe the way they call out to the people they are stalking, acting like they are friends, asking personal questions. Then when FOR SOME REASON their prey doesn’t stop and chat, they say insulting things back. Like adolescent boys in the schoolyard. UGH.

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    Definition of Papparazzi: What Ryan Seacrest would be if he wasn’t born(then surgically enhanced)attractive.

  • Indeed

    Poor Pitt, indeed. But on the other hand, they must like staying in L.A. for whatever reasons, since they haven’t moved to some small island or remote areas to settle down like some other celebrity families. With their resources, there’s no place in the world they can’t move to.

  • ruserious

    The Papparazzi are scum!!!

  • Why

    #Brad Pitt is Brad Pitt. It does not matter if he is a doctor,lawyer or dentist. At this point they will hound, Doctor pitt, Lawyer Pitt. It does not matter,changing profession won’t help.

    I think one way to protect themselves from insulting papps maybe that when you are about to get out there wear your iPod or something — listen to some loud music and all you see is shouting papps. You can still wave and smile, and not be affected by insulting comments. What they want is exactly, REACTION. So if Brad or Angie are seen angry at them and show frowning face that’s what they want. The tabs are catering to craving haters desperate to see “unhappy” Brad generating “breakup” rumors and “going back to Jen” rumors, and that’s the shot papps are after. Wear your iPod, Brad!

    What ever happened to common decency?They have suffered a loss,who would want someone following you around taking your picture while you grieve the loss of a loved one?NO ONE deserves that!

  • bdj

    I wouldn’t be so quick to pity BP. He is just handling his business and protecting his family as any MAN would do. BP is aware of his celebrity status and knows how to handle fame. You take the good with the bad in any situation. However, it would not hurt the paps to back off for a while. Everyone deserves privacy especially during times like these. BP seems to be an honorable man. Many have spoken highly of him in the biz. He seems to be totally devoted to AJ and their children. I wish them all the best. AJ is a good person with a good heart. She has a large international following and her fans have shown her great support during this difficult time. I hope the fans will continue to donate to CSMC cancer research and continue to support BAMZS in their humanitarian work and careers. Thanks Just Jared for giving the Fans a place to come and congregate and for all the other posts on different celebrities.

  • Frenchy

    And the crazy thing is that why are they taking his picture? Is it because he’s been nominated for awards? There was a death in the family and the paps are clicking away. For what? there’s no story but I’m sure the tabs will fabricate one. There really is no reason to be taking his picture like that There is a time and a place for all those photographers and Brad & Angelina have been gracious at those times. When they get back to NO, I hope they will get some peace.

  • me

    it’s not really fair to take his picture now. even though he isn’t a dentist, he is a human being and people should respect that. on the red carpet even out and around, he may be considered fair game, but a human being no matter the profession shouldn’t be hounded while in mourning.

    Sometimes I ask myself that everyday? And these things that called themselves paps are pure pond scum, IMO.

    Pitt is the biggest media whore, outside Angelina, in the world. Sorry Brad, when you court the media as you do, you take the good with the bad.

  • http://daneve3aol.com freddio

    Brad look’s really sad he and Angelina handle the papps real well but you can tell on his face he is really grieving for Angelina’s mom and her family as well as himself and their family that mean’s his children especailly his youngest chid won’t get to know their grandmother how sad my prayer’s go out to them.
    You’d think the papps would give them a break after Brad and Angelina have been so gracious to them.

  • Sasha

    The Paps need to leave this family alone. Please follow Maniston she needs attention other wise she wouldn’t be giving Exclusive Interviews on the same week Angie lost her Mom. Maniston is such as b–ch.

  • Sasha

    Brad and Angelina are going to be so much closer because of this death. I can’t wait to see them after they feel a little better because you’ll never completely be ok after you lose a loved one, just a little ok.
    Our prayers are with you keep working as a team and you’ll survive this crazy world of paps.

    The paps would starve if they don’t get pics of Brad Pitt. What are they doing running after a middle aged man anyway? Are the tabs that hard up for pics that they resort to someone who’s been in the industry for like 15 years? Please, soon they will be running after Steven Speilberg for pics! LOL!!!!!! Sorry but the fansites & blogs beat the tabs anyday and the tabs know it.

    #14 bdj,Oh I don’t pity Brad,he will handle his business and take care of his family.That I have FULL confidence he WILL do!I just find myself grossed out by the papps.Yes people need to earn a living,but how low are some people willing to sink to earn money?

    You Too,
    I couldn’t agree more. This lady has no respect but then again she is not that close to her mohter. She should have shut the hell up and stay in your Maniston house for a while. But as usual she is out talking about “septum” what a piece of sh-t. Jen craves the attention and is loving this week but like the old folks always say be careful what you saw for you will rip the rewards later.

    ITA and the extended family like the Pitts & Betrand’s will close ranks. I think sometime this year they will be married and the public won’t know.

  • !!?>

    I feel bad for Angelina, not Brad. It seems like they’re keeping their distance from ange. Brad should act as shark bait while Angelina does what she has to do.

  • lookwhaticando

    They should get a restraining order, And then you wonder why Micky had to be so aggressive, this is really out of control, we really need laws to prevent this type of behavior.

  • Sasha

    ITA,
    I think they are already married. They wear their rings on their right fingers which is appropriate to me.
    Who say we should wear our wedding bands on our left hand? No wonder so many divorces.

  • Montserrat

    At this time with Angie being down like this let us rise above the haters and DO NOT RESPOND. This is one way we can show Angie how much she means to all of us. It is hard, and they will post stuff about JA but whatever you do, DO NOT RESPOND.

  • !!?>

    The best way to handle people like maniston is to ignore them. Don’t give her what she wants… attention.

  • Jolie4ever

    The paps needs to back off – they should let them be, they’re grieving for goodness sake!

  • Indeed

    There’s no utility in reasoning with the papps. Anybody should know that, especially someone with Pitt’s experience with them. Seems to me he’s enjoying tackling with these people maybe just for the fun of it.

  • guli

    Goodmorning BAMZS fans!

    I can’t wait for them to get back to NO. But, even after the funeral there is still so much to do. The worst part for me and hubby after losing her sis to breast cancer and his Mom to Alzheimers was going through their personal belongings. It brings back so many memories it really is very tough! Thank God Angie has Brad by her side.

  • http://UK ?

    people should be ashamed of doing that interview with Mrs nose today.

    Thank you Brad for standing up for Angelina.

  • g121

    very protective,,, i hope the papz can give them privacy even just for this moment of mourning…

    God bless the Jolie Pitts!

  • Jolie4ever

    guli – Good morning mayor, how are you today???

  • African Girl

    When a man has to ask for privacy while he mourns, you know there is something seriously wrong somewhere. Again, he is not saying ..”Don’t take my picture at all” he’s saying “Just let us be during this mourning period”. I don’t think it’s even for money anymore, I think it is the thrill of the chase that turns the paparazzis on. I do hope they have enough decency to grant his request.

  • isatou joof

    the paps have no heart they should just give them a break

  • admit it

    Admit it, this world would be a very boring place without the coupling of Brad and Angie. I really don’t care about Hollywood and don’t get interested enough to really pay attention to other celebs. One thing I do wish is that the Jolie Pitts would just go somewhere secluded for a couple of months. Completely shut out any unwanted attention and don’t let anyone (except immediate family) know where they are going. Then the blogs, the media, and the public will have to simply survive on daily life musings of Paris, Nicole, Lindsey, or what Britney is doing. Trust me, you’ll get tired very soon. The SAG awards were boring as h*ll but if Brad and Angie were there, we’d still be talking about it, even the trolls.

    So I wish they would just disappear for a few months as revenge. If so many people dislike them, then why do so many follow every move they make? There is a big disconnect here. Maybe it’s people who are in denial that they are interested in their lives and do like them. They don’t deserve to be treated like this when they are in a period of mourning.

  • The Pay Off

    he should just pay them whatever the going rate is for their picture and have them sign a contract saying they will leave his family alone for so many weeks while they grieve and if they don’t sue for breach of contract. He could give them millions…b/c scum like they are are not going to be cheap.

    Just think, even if Angie/Brad wanted to have a private service, how would they get there without the papz knowing about it. This is what the plan is to continue to follow them around so they can get the perfect shot of them at the service, burial site, the true mourning of all friends and family.

    I’ve written to many media shows asking, begging them to leave these people along but it doesn’t work when you have mags like US Weekly, People.com buying the photos to but on their website. And I thought People was on Brangelina’s side. I guess it’s all about the dollar.

  • think positive!

    Copying my post from the other thread.

    Brad is the most gentle, kind, generous and calm male Star. And to say something like that about a person with his amount of celebrity status is very rear. You will never see him lose his temper. You will never see him yelling or through insults to the razzis or braking their cameras.

    This kind of behaviour would be understandable especially in the situation they are going through now but at the end of the day it would have done more harm that good. The paps would get more aggressive and the harassment would be bigger. Plus as some already said Brad is not that type of person.

    He has a great self control and cautiousness in this kind of things after so many years in the industry. He knows very well how to handle his business and he always doing it with respect and grace. And that is why he is the ZEN master. I really admire him for the way he is standing up for the situation.

    I just really hope that after his polite request they will give them their privacy or at least take pictures from a big distance. I hope they will have some decency to do that at this rough period of time.

    Brad or Angie never complained about the paps or any negativity towards them. But this is not a usual outing of them nor they are in any premiere or award show. This is the time where the family is mourning for the passing of a loved family member. They are not only Celebrities. They are human beings as well and people should at least give them some respect at this point.

    I guess as soon as the funeral is done they’ll be back in NOLA. At least they can have some privacy there and the paps are taking the pictures from a distance.

    How true about the sifting through the personal belongings. I had to pack up a brother and a mother and I am still not addressing lots of the items. It takes time to handle the emotions attached to every picture, cd, and personal note. Angelina has a lot ahead of her, it makes me misty-eyed to think about it.

    Jolie4ever Says— Hi Ya, I am doing fine thank you. Just trying to figure out what kind of people paps and haters are to have no respect to other human beings at a time like this. OK, paps are doing it for money, but the haters? I sure can’t understand it.

    Anywho, have you seen this video by BluMyst, it really is great. I’ll post it again for folks who haven’t seen it yet.

    Oh God….Those paps don´t care about Brad or Angie´s fellings….What happened with the word “respect”…

    It must be very difficult to live like that everyday, but specially now…

    My deepest condolences to AJ and her family. I hope they get through this terrible lose in peace and with the respect that all human beings deserve.
    The papz are the pond scum of this world. Haven’t they learned anything from the death of Princess Di? What is it going to take for the justice system to protect people’s privacy? Yes, they are celebrities but they have a right to be safe!!!!!!
