  • leetle UN

    Is Brad trying to say “every three seconds” or “every two seconds”?? It’s not clear. They should have given him an easier three words or worked harder with him; should have shot it a few more times til it was clear. Zwei and Drei are not easy for beginners.

  • Missouri Fan

    Good Mornin/Afternoon/Evening to all the BAMPZS around the world!

    Brad is soo handsome on this, please vote for him!! The sixiest man of 4 children!!

    Thanks Just Jared. Very nice video. It is good to see that it was presented at the G8 Summit. It is good to have your voice heard in any language, especially when voicing for an end to world hunger and poverty. Best wishes to all involved.

    Nice video, Matt need to loose some weight.

    Since when does Antonio Banderas look like Matthew Lillard? And Ben Affleck should never, ever stand lilke that. He looks like a yeti.

    Brangelina Terrorized by $100 Mil Kidnap Threat

    Angelina Jolie and newly adopted son Pax escaped a plot by kidnappers to snatch the boy upon his arrival to the US – and to demand $100 million for his return. According to Life & Style, a “credible” plan was “meticulously planned” by a gang that has executed kidnappings and extortion plots before. “They’re highly skilled operatives with little regard for human life,” says an insider close to Brangelina’s security team. Though the couple have faced kidnapping threats before, this particular menace was deemed “credible and serious” – and was, apparently, foiled before any harm could come to the child. Meanwhile, reports L&S, Brad has installed a $500,000 security system in the home the couple bought in New Orleans, and what’s more, the house

    Brad said alle drein Sekunden, maybe it’s hard to understand for you, cause you don’t speak the language..

  • leetle UN

    Ich have acht Jarhe in Deutscland gelebt–in Freiburg, danoch Dresden (hinter der Mauer in 1984….ich war 1 1/2 Jarhe lang die einzige Amerikanerin in Dresden; war enlgisch Lehrerin auf der TU. Kennst du Dresden?), und dann Berlin (1990-1995).

    Brad spricht nicht deutlich, oder meine Ohren werden alt (habe das Video zwei Mal angeheort), was auch moeglich ist.

    Aber mach Dir keine Sorgen. Er murmurt auch in englischen Filmen. Arikulation ist nicht seine Staerke. Guck dir mal den Film “Fight Club” mit Edward Norton an; verglieche den beiden. Es ist wie Tag und Nacht. Edward Norton kann man verstehen; Brad wohl nicht so gut. Es gehoert zu seinem “Tough Guy” Image, aber die Artikulation leidet darunter, obwohl andere Touch maenner…..Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, haben deutlicher ausgeprochen.

    Tippfehler in meiner Post Nummer 19…….Es soll “habe” stet “have” heissen. Entschuldige. Danke. Und jetzt nun wieder auf die Arbeit.

    Zweiter Tippfehler: “andere TOUGH Maenner,” nicht “TOUCH.” Sorry nochmals.

  • guli

    Thanks JJ!!!

    MF—I will send out reminders… ;-)

  • leetle UN

    Dritte und vierte Tippfehler: “verglieche” und “englisch”

    Eigentlich muesste ich langamer tippen, aber auf Arbeit sollte ich eigentlich ueberhaupt nicht hier schreben……deswegen die Hetze.

  • lllllllllllllllllll

    german is an ugly language plus if they want to fight poverty they can all give all their money
    they are all hypocrit

  • leetle UN

    German is beautiful and Germany was home to some of the best writers and thinkers and scientists and musicians ever in the Western world. Plus they take seriously their role as developed country trying to make the developing world better, while we spend money on war in Iraq. Good for them to do this.

  • love

    I love how many celebrities are trying to make change in the world, may God Almighty continue to bless and see them through. They will not lack anything good. God is always happy with those that are willing to share with poor and less fortunate. More blessing of God to them and family.

    I agree leetle UN!
    It is a great thing to do this and Americans should be proud that some of their own took part in this. I was born in Germany but don’t speak the language, but even though I don’t understand what they are saying I still got the message because of all the media attention this ad is getting.
    I thought they all sounded great……and Brad looks good as always :-)

  • Not So Happy

    Yes, let’s stop poverty in the world. How ’bout all you celebrities stop living HALF of your lavish lifestyles and donate the other half to fighting poverty–that’d be about the same as what myself and my family/friends donate annually to fight injustice and to help the disenfranchized. Please. The stupidly rich soliciting the middle class. Nice.

  • Besane

    Many in the world live their daily lives with multiple languages. I just saw Natalie Portman’s interview in Israel, and she speaks in Hebrew which we don’t get to hear in the US. Language is a tool, and also a spice of life :)

  • truth

    I live for the day when people will stop criticizing and do something or just appreciate what others are doing when they are trying to help. These guys are all givers, they give their money and time.

  • isitreallythatserious?

    For those who have the nerve to hate on any celeb using their time and celebrity for any good cause ….shove it! Most of the celebs in this piece do give up their time and money to the causes they are speaking about but I’m sorry their are more upper to lower middle class people in this world than rich celebs and socialites, so their message has to go to the majority of the world ppl that can donate.

    Dear Ms. Shut up (what a lovely name!)

    I was just saying I thought Brad mumbled too much, in English as well as in German. Watch Fight Club and marvel at how clearly Edward Norton articulates compared to Brad. Don’t jump on me, fans; I just he just needs to work on his articulation more. Now, my ears are old and that may play a role in why I find it hard to understand Brad sometimes. Also, he has that tough guy image he plays so often, which in his case seems to be accompanied by subpar articulation. But Clint Eastwood and John Wayne played tough guys too, and their speech was much clearer and never a problem to understand. In the new James Bond movie, however, tough guy whatever the lead man’s name is is frequently unintelligible.

  • please

    Please let’s stop posting tabloid articles. Whenever they can’t get any Jolie-Pitt’s news, they make uo stories. We should stop encouraging lies. If we post these stories, we spread lies. Donate the money you spend on tabloids for better causes.

  • Not So Happy

    I’d rather hear about the thousands of normal, everyday people who give their time and money (many who ultimately go without stuff of their own to benefit someone else) than the celebrity “heroes” who still live in their multimillion dollar house(s) and jet set 11 months out of the year while they “work” 1 month. The only reason I even saw this site is because a co worker was killing himself laughing at the hero worship going on here and asked me to read the comments. Yeesh. Bring on the unsung heroes and give credit where credit is deservedly due.

    US Weekly Angelina Jolie Saint or Sinner Her Twisted Double Life

    Angelina Jolie recently announced, to much fanfare, that she would be a stay-at-home mom. “I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life,” Jolie told the Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper on March 16. “I have four children and caring for them is the most important thing for the moment.”

    So it came as a surprise four days later when Variety reported that the Oscar winner had signed up to play an assassin in Wanted, which is set to begin shooting in ((((((April in Prague.)))))))) [[[[[HYPOCRITE]]]]]]

    Even more bewildering was Jolie, 31, showing up in Chicago on March 23 for screen tests on Wanted.

    The fact that Jolie was anywhere but at home with her family was odd. Just eight days earlier, the actress had picked up her newly adopted son, Pax, from a Vietnam orphanage.

    But, despite what she told the Vietnamese newspaper, the mother-of-four does not appear to be slowing down any time soon. She’s also slated to star in Atlas Shrugged and The Changeling, which is preparing a fall start.

    “That does seem like a heavy workload for someone with a large family,” Christine Adamec, author of Is Adoption for You?, tells Us.

    Adds L.A.-area early-development psychologist Marcy Axness: “Children thrive on predictability, continuity, security and rhythm in their daily life.”

    That’s not the only about-face Jolie has made recently. The day Jolie picked up Pax at the orphanage, where paparazzi swarmed, she said, “Photographs make him upset.I’m sorry for bringing this into his life.”

    (((((And yet, just days after picking up Pax, Jolie staged photos of herself, Zahara, Maddox and Pax and sold them to the U.K.’s Hello! magazine and People magazine. )))))) [[[[[HYPOCRITE]]]]]]

    Why the change of heart on the photography issue? Why can’t Angelina settle down? Is she confusing Pax? Will Brad and Angie’s relationship last?
    _________________________________________________________________

    Thank you US Weekly!!! Thank you for pointing out the obvious and (((usual))) hpocritical way in which Jolie lives – ((((says)))) something so righteous and almighty in one breath and then takes ((((action)))) in the very oppposite direction.

    Of course she didn’t say she’d be a stay at home mom forever but she starts shooting in (((2 weeks)))). Jolie consistantly proves by her actions what a liar and hyupocrite she is. Thank you US Weekly!!!!

  • please

    I’ll say keep posting in the language you know. I bet the topic will attract Germans since this is in their language. I hope you guys can interpret what they said in English.

    Well you gave yourself away with this post! And if you were honest with yourself, you would see the everyday ppl who give in local news and something national but be real…..that doesn’t grap most ppl attention….celebs do. I mean look at all of the sites…like this one…that “hero worshipping” that goes on today in the world.

    P.S. Tell your “co – worker” that if he think this site is bad then it hasn’t live enough…go to PH site. And how bored do you have to be at work to find humor on a damn celeb blog?

    ——————–
    LMAO!!! Do you want a snack or something? B/c you feel way too much for something/someone you claim to hate. Look…she is a movie star….one of the world’s biggest ….which means she will work again. She never said that she will stay at home forever but to help him adjust. Since she has had Mad she has made sure that she will have a light work sch. even on set, so she can spend time with her child….now that she has four …I’m sure the same will be done her. So stop getting excited from a tab story that is giving you critters something to say. At the end of the day, she’s smarter, more beautiful and talented than you….so chew on that for a while instead of tab story that will next week say that AJ is the best mom in the world.

    I`m thinking you`re Jolie`s paid lackey. Holy obsession.

    Love to hear more, but I`m on the clock in 5!

  • bdj

    Wow!!! I guess the message got lost in the translation for some. It is a good cause and a good message. We can only wish for an end to poverty and if some celebrities can bring that message to light, than more power to them.
