Pitt Wins Top Venice Award

Pitt Wins Top Venice Award

Brad Pitt scooped up the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival for his role as America’s most notorious outlaw in The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford.

“I was stunned,” Brad said. “My first reaction was, ‘Huh?’ I did not expect it. It’s a great honor. I am honored to be part of the list of actors who won this award. I’m still processing this.” Congratulations, Mr. Bradley!

Pitt‘s Babel co-star Cate Blanchett also picked up best actress for her role in the biopic of Bob Dylan, I’m Not There. Both Brad and Cate couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony.

Ang Lee‘s Lust, Caution won the Golden Lion for best film, just two years after winning with Brokeback Mountain.

Put on your dancing shoes, it’s time to party!

Pictures below include Angelina Jolie picking up son Maddox, 6, from his French school in NYC’s Upper East Side on Friday afternoon.

Brad Pitt scores a hit, award with Jesse James
Fresh off a Best Actor award from the Venice Film Festival, Brad Pitt talks to the Post’s Bob Thompson about his new film The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford and the pitter patter of little feet:

After the Venice Film Festival, Brad Pitt and his Angelina Jolie family entourage found themselves completing their world film festival tour with a stop in Toronto Saturday.
That’s where he got to celebrate Pitt’s Venice Film Festival best actor award for his The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.

Before they got to Hogtown, though, Pitt also proclaimed for all to hear that he
wants to have another child. And we should all go ahead and assume the
making of that potential baby would be with Jolie. Together the couple already have four kids, including a 15-month-old girl Jolie gave birth to.

On the professional front, Pitt proudly showcased his cowboy picture at the
Toronto International Film Festival. Screening at the Elgin Visa Theatre
Saturday night, Jesse James shows itself to be an artistic cowboy picture about heroes and villains and a lot of the in between.

Pitt, naturally, plays Jesse James. The outlaw’s brooding and paranoid and in the
final year of his rampaging. So don’t expect quick draws and saloon brawls.
Ain’t what this western’s about.

Filmed more than two years ago mostly outside of Calgary and Winnipeg, the movie is a mostly reflective artsy oater by Aussie director Andrew Dominik who fine-tunes the performances each and every way.

Pitt and especially Casey Affleck who plays the coward Ford, give
Oscar-worthy performances although both seemed slightly uncomfortable about
the accolades offered them at a jammed Four Seasons Hotel Saturday before the screening.

In an interview with the National Post, Pitt admitted the three year long edit of “the complicated and psychological film” was worth the wait because they released the drama they had intended to make.

Some pundits predicted the picture was in trouble last year, but the Ocean’s Thirteen star said nothing could be farther from the truth. He said when director Dominik missed a release date last fall they both decided to wait for a following autumn release.

Their decision seems to have paid off. Pitt said he is especially thrilled with Affleck’s performance. “He’s always been more than he’s showed us and now he finally gets to prove it,” said Pitt.

In fact, the US$30-milion film is getting positive notices at the Toronto festival after winning over critics at Venice which is where Pitt suggested he might want to have another child.

He wouldn’t go that far in Toronto but he maintained his new family is the most important thing to him for many different reasons.

“My family comes first policy has made making movies more enjoyable,” he confirmed. “I don’t feel defined by what I do and that makes me feel good doing it.”

Speaking of family, Pitt smiled when he was asked if he could escape George Clooney who was in a Four Seasons suite a few doors down promoting Toronto festival film Michael Clayton. They both had been in Venice doing their festival thing. And both are currently together again on a Coen Brothers picture being shot in New York called Burn After Reading.

So did Clooney, a Coen veteran, give Pitt any advice on working with the brothers? “We don’t give that much advice to each other just a lot sarcasm,” he said.

Thanks JJ for the news.

WTG Brad, Cate and Ang Lee!

Thanks, Jared.

Are they required to give and exceptance speech if so i wonder what he said….not like he is going to mention angie and the kids but still it would be nice to know what he said.

“My family comes first policy has made making movies more enjoyable,” he confirmed. “I don’t feel defined by what I do and that makes me feel good doing it.”

Thank you Brad for telling it like it is. FAMILY COMES FIRST!!!

‘The Assassination of Jesse James’: Brad Pitt perfect as celebrity outlaw in classic western

Geoff Pevere
MOVIE CRITIC

The most ritualistic of movie narrative forms, the western has always had its own death hard-wired into its soul. No popular movie genre is more nostalgic or melancholic by nature, and none is more fixated on the transcendent necessity of dying. Legends are born when the flesh expires.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, the second film (after 2000′s Chopper) written and directed by 40 year-old New Zealander Andrew Dominik, is like an extended death ballad, an account of the final days of the famed Missouri desperado and ex-Confederate Jesse James (Brad Pitt) that manages to breathe vitality into the western movie as a popular art form at the same time that it so magisterially administers the last rites.

To a genre that’s itself been pronounced deceased more times than Jesse James’s death – at the hand of the “dirty little coward” Robert Ford (Casey Affleck in the current enactment) – has been dramatized, we may have to make room in the tomb for another classic.

Based on the superb 1983 novel by Ron Hansen, The Assassination of Jesse James … begins with the arrival of the sadly starstruck 19 year-old Bob Ford (a fetchingly creepy and sad performance by Affleck) at the James’s gang forest hideout on the eve of what will be the already famed outfit’s final train robbery.

Coldly rebuffed by Jesse’s taciturn older brother Frank (Sam Shepard), and subsequently patronized by the distracted and self-possessed Jesse (whose prematurely seasoned 34 years are in no way ill-suited to the over-40 Pitt), Ford assumes the role that will become his mythic destiny: as the man who will ultimately betray the object of his wounded obsession, and who will be forced to live out his remaining days as one of history’s most despised and trod-upon footnotes. He’s a precursor to all those pathetic nobodies who must kill their idols for a place in history, and the frontier Judas of American folklore.

After Frank departs for the East (where he will live long enough to live out the contradictions of his own legend), Jesse is left with both the scruffy remains of his gang – including Bob’s brother Charley (Sam Rockwell), his cousin Wood Hite (Jeremy Renner), the bloomer-chasing **** Liddel (Paul Schneider) and not overly intellectual Ed Miller (Garret Dillahunt) – and the demons of his own unsettled psyche.

While Affleck’s cipher-like Bob Ford provides the movie’s romantically distorted, quietly tormented point of view, Pitt is magnetic as Jesse, an intelligent but paranoid man, driven into hiding by his own reputation, and worn into early decline by the certainty of his own death. He never sleeps, wears his gunbelts constantly, and is prone to mood-swings that can be terrifying in their intensity.

Spending most of the movie either riding alone on quests for vengeance – one of which leads to an especially savage beating of an innocent teenage boy – or staring with suspicious conviction at potential betrayers, Pitt’s Jesse James is a man imprisoned within his own celebrity. At one point, we’re told Jesse is the only American Europeans know besides Mark Twain – driven virtually insane by what he has become and tortured by the peace he’ll never have.

Overlaid with a quietly ironic narration that suggests the influence of Badlands’ Terrence Malick, and shot in Alberta by the estimable Roger Deakins in a manner that frequently gives the edges of the frame a prismatic quality, The Assassination of Jesse James … is itself a movie that plays out somewhere between the realm of self-conscious myth and grimy human tragedy.

It’s a western destined to outlive the pronouncements of its own death, because it knows that death is only the first stage in the life of legend.

CHEERS TO ALL THE BAMPZS!

EEEEEWWWWW!!!!! That’s not true — I hate it when people say that about AJ and Banderas. It’s not fair to Tang Wei and Tony Leung to make that statement. It took 12 days on a closed set to film the sex scenes in “Lust, Caution.” If it was real as you say — why so long?

Thanks Missouri Fan, I love that movie she and Ryan Phillipe were great in it.

As a parent of an adult student, I’m pleased to see them settling down with these children and the eldest being enrolled in a private school.

What perplexes me, however, is how did the paparazzi in a city the size of New York know this child was attending this particular school (as all cameras are setup and ready to roll) and that was Maddox’ first day of attendance?

Obviously, even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have publicists who release private information on their underage children for publicity for themselves….shame on them! It’s one thing for actors to be media whores for themselves but the children need to be protected from the paparazzi and not appear on magazine covers even for philanthropic contributions!

Just because you’re not that bright, doesn’t mean the paps/press aren’t.

BTW, can you please stop the fake mispronunciation and bad grammar?

ONE PICTURE does not tell the entire story specifically when you have no idea when that picture was taken. You don’t know when Brad and company arrived from NY and you don’t know where Angelina is at this moment. The folks who believe she COULD be there are basing that off the interview Brad gave the press corp and the interviewers mention of her being there. I’d go with him sooner than you but that’s too logical.

And with that I’m done responding to you LMAO. For your sake, I hope Angelina is in NY cause’ I think you’d have a conniption if she showed up tonight with Brad.

72 Kira : 09/08/2007 at 4:15 pm

This is the same school Maddox attended in NOLA and in Prague, just the NYC location. These schools are located all over the world and follow the same school calendar and teach the same lessons with little deviation from what is taught in schools in France. Many children of diplomats attend these schools.

Anyone who has a brain who knew that Maddox was in Lycees in both NOLA and Prague knew that they would enroll Maddox in the same school for the continuity of his education. No publicist put out any info. Paps are very wily and good at ferreting out info and know where to stalk their prey.

OK, I am going to be nice, but you all know ‘why’ is talking to herself by changing names. So let her suffer away in her misery and completely ignore her since she knows NO TRUE FAN of JP’s would respond to her iditotic comments…

Let’s celebrate and have fun….

Can someone please post when the RC is and if we have a site that might cover it live…I am going to check as well…BRB

No and they’ll always trip themselves up because of it. How do they know? Umm, well, could be because that’s the school he always attends wherever they are. That would be the first clue. I’m just following the not complicated to do, dots.

coalharbourqt @ 09/08/2007 at 4:33 pm

Woo hoo! I hope this is the first of a long line of awards for Brad in this film. What better news could we ask for as Brad prepares for the premiere in Toronto :D I can’t wait to see this film!

Obviously, even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have publicists who release private information on their underage children for publicity for themselves….shame on them! It’s one thing for actors to be media whores for themselves but the children need to be protected from the paparazzi and not appear on magazine covers even for philanthropic contributions~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh plese another “concern troll” — the paparazzi stand outside their door 24/7 and then they FOLLOW them, or they do their research and know that Mad has been in Lysee for almost 2 years in LA. The idea that Cindy would call paparazzi is so laughable — this is the man who got the airspace over the site of his wedding restricted for the day. to ANY flights.

ROTFLMFAO!!

KK1: ITA. My words, exactly. Thanks for responding to Kira.
Anyone knows web sites of newspapers of Toronto?, thanks in advance.

The whole family went to Europe for the festival why wouldn’t they go 1hr away to Toronto?
Angie is going to the festival tonight with Brad. They always support each other in everything. The only time Angie didn’t go was when they were in India and Brad went by himself to Canada for Babel.

Hottest Couple Ever @ 09/08/2007 at 4:35 pm

Way to go, Brad! Yes!

Hi Guli – Red Carpet is 8:30 pm EST. Still working on finding a web cam and not having any luck whatsoever.

This is the official TIFF website, but can’t seem to locate any cams here:

http://www.tiff07.ca/default.aspx

Nisha, the original @ 09/08/2007 at 4:37 pm

106 – OK, it’s official. This person’s an idiot. I truly hate to say this, but: IGNORE THE TROLL!

Kira,

I think you’re being rather harsh and that your assertion are based on a lack of understanding. It’s well known that AJ doesn’t have a publicist. Manhattan is populous, but not so big that people can’t get around quickly (I know first-hand — I’ve lived there). The paps can follow them from their home, since where they live is no secret. They also often get tips from insiders at those locations (even schools, no?). And the Jolie-Pitts past behavior has shown that that seem careful & protective about raising their kids, even under their circumstances; and planting stories would be inconsistent with what you suggest. The fishbowl is inevitable given who they are and the resulting the public interest. (Hey, *we’re* checking out the pics & commenting on them…) The paps follow them always — not just on the first day of school.

BTW, there are also very good public schools (you message suggests a bias for private schools) and I wouldn’t venture to make judgement on their school choice — and on the Jolie-Pitts in general. We may see them in the media, but we don’t really know them, afterall….

Cheers,
Lib

Hey Guli..how are you?

the real tita @ 09/08/2007 at 4:38 pm

#64: Katya, when Angie made Original Sin, Melanie Griffith never left the set. She was making sure her husband behaved. So that was a hot scene but because it was Angie, they said it was for real.

In Ang Lee’s movie, I think somebody already questioned him about the reality of the scenes. I have to find that link because I think he turned the question back to the inquirer and asked, “what do you think?”. Something along the lines of to make it look real, it has to be real. Maybe he was just trying to create more intrigue for his movie so people’s interest will be piqued but he never did give a straight answer. Whether on purpose or not, maybe he was leaving it to the viewer’s imagination nobody knows. For me I say there are real sex scenes in it until proven otherwise. I’ll apologize if I misjudged.

#72: kira, you should really ask how people from in and out of town found out and knew where and when to go.

However, I’ll answer you. Everybody who follows the saga of the JP’s will have that information. They can guess accurately that there is only one school that Maddox will go to because even here in this blog, everybody’s talking about it. It’s the same school that Maddox has been going to in the US and in Europe. If you were the media, you would certainly know that. Pictures mean money, M-O-N-E-Y. Why wouldn’t they stake out the school? Besides, how hard could it be to ask when the first day of school is? There’s such a thing as a phone and the Internet.

Why would the Jolie-Pitts call the papz so they could money off them and disturb their peace? They don’t need any more press. They already are the most sought after family so why should they advertise some more?

104 gigi : 09/08/2007 at 4:34 pm

Maybe because it is only an hour away.
During the Palm Springs festival which was honoring Babel and it’s cast, Angelina was in LA and did not go. She went to two festivals. She does not have to go to all of them

Thanks for that link. I’m watching it now.

I’m back to add a big congratulations to Cate Blanchett for her role as BOB DYLAN. All those artisically clueless haters who were ranting on Angelina for portraying Marianne Pearl, well here we have a woman portraying a man in a film and she wins a Festival prize.

Why – Angie is not a silly woman to get upset over such silly things such as Brad saying he maintains a deep friendship with Jen. If anything it just shows maturity. She talks to both her ex’s I don’t think she would have a problem if Brad and Jen talked.
Doesn’t it seem silly to you that she would be upset? if it doesn’t then I’m sorry you are just foolish.
You are a hater because fans know that Angie thought process is way beyond all these supposed stories.

he was inlove while filming AOJJ.now,count down to the GG AND OSCAR.

Hiya Coal, aeon—I am just having a ball!!! This is such great news and can’t wait for the pics fro RC. Hey coal, I’ll keep on looking too..

ok, I too think that angie is a open mind women and understand what he say about aniston, but when she said this about her ex she too said so much lovely things about brad and this is the important what do yo say about the present.
but brad not said nothing about angie and in the premiere in the venice he is not sweet with her, and maybe she read the interview and feel bad.
like other person if you said so much lovely thing about your partner and he don´t say anything THIS HURT, and angie is human

And if the drama is over there why bring it here.

130 why : 09/08/2007 at 4:49 pm
some happend here, angie read the v interview I think
********************************************************

Honey, let me clue you in on something: Angelina has never given a flying f*art what the magazines say about her and Brad and she sure as hell isn’t about to start caring now.

Second thing I’m going to clue you in on is that you have a serious reading comprehension problem. Brad said Fugly Jenny is a good friend. So what? That’s “good friend” as in “just friends, nothing more”. It’s a polite way of kicking an ex to the curb, and if you’re too stupid to see that, well, I can’t help you.

From reading your posts here I’m starting to believe you are either seven years old or you have the mental/emotional competence of a seven-year-old. In either case, your writing skills are atrocious. The phrase should be “something happened here”, not “some happend here”.

You really need to read more.

and norman and daisy are screammmin to the blue lagoon.hehehe.

Can someone tell me whens the TIFF premiere??

Meanwhile, Brad Pitt surprisingly nabbed the award for best actor for his role in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Pitt’s co-star, Casey Affleck, had been the rumored to be the favorite but the honor went to Pitt, who plays the ill-fated James.

Brian De Palma won the Silver Lion award for best director for his graphic new film, “Redacted,” which tells the true story of the rape and murder of a 14 year-old Iraqi girl by U.S. soldiers, while Todd Haynes’ much-publicized Bob Dylan biopic made peace with a runner-up prize for best picture.

Here’s to Angelina congratulating Brad.

I sense a nomination easily for the Globes and most likely The Academy Awards.

How cool would it be for Brad & Cate to be nominated again for their roles? I love Cate and think she is one of the premiere actress working in films today. But there is a problem for me, Angelina & Cate in the same acting category. I love them both. They are so different but in many ways so alike!

Here’s to Brad winning at the TIFF.

Angie + Brad are one. You think the mag will hit the stand before Angie knows what’s in it, you’re joking. Plus Angie is a good person!
Congrats Brad and Angie!!!

What you would do and what she would do are two different things. You are very insecure and not very bright (it’s the writing style or the way you want to be perceived, so suffer!). Angie is smart and very secure. She doesn’t have to act like a wounded kitty cause she can fight back like a tigress if she wants plus she trusts her man. Now do you get why she will never act the way you expect her to?

Toronto’s surprise claim to fame
Survey that tracks which city events rate international coverage says film fest is T.O.’s technical knockout

Sep 08, 2007 04:30 AM
Francine Kopun
Feature Writer

The Toronto International Film Festival is the city’s biggest international newsmaker by far, according to a new study by a Montreal media monitoring company.

Without it, our biggest claim to fame would be the Toronto Stock Exchange.

“We call it a media eclipse, meaning it’s such a big event that it makes everything else look unimportant,” said Eric Leveille, general manager of Influence Communication, the company that conducted the study for the Toronto Star and La Presse.

“We would even go so far as to say that while TIFF is going on, it’s an excellent time of year for corporations to announce bad news because no one is going to listen. It’s eclipsing all other news right now in your city.”

The study examined 50 newspapers from eight countries outside of Canada for articles that mentioned Toronto or Montreal – excluding sports stories. Some highlights:

Toronto was mentioned 6,000 times. Montreal was mentioned 3,500 times.

Thirty per cent of the stories about Toronto related to business, with the Toronto Stock Exchange accounting for 13 per cent of mentions.

Another 30 per cent of the stories about Toronto related to culture. In that category, TIFF was by far the biggest story, accounting for one-quarter of all mentions of Toronto.

“This is humongous. Twenty-five per cent of a sector is absolutely huge,” said David Lamarche, Influence analyst.

The indie band Arcade Fire was Montreal’s top culture story, and it accounted for only 5 per cent of stories in that category. Cirque du Soleil and the Just for Laughs Festival were tied for second – each were named in 4 per cent of stories about culture in Montreal. The Jazz Festival, Leonard Cohen and the Montreal Film Festival tied for third place at 2 per cent each.

TIFF was the most covered topic in the U.K., in the U.S., where it got 10 times more coverage than any other subject in the culture sector, and in India, explained in part by the strong Bollywood connection.

“Bollywood loves Toronto,” said Leveille. “More and more they’re sending their stars to your city, they’re sending their producers out there.”

TIFF director Piers Handling said yesterday he knows from first-hand experience that Toronto is known from Houston to Mumbai for the film festival. He argues it’s becoming what the Louvre is to Paris – a cultural icon, inextricably linked to the city.

“The festival largely brands the city of Toronto. I’ll be so arrogant as to say that to a large extent, we brand Canada,” said Handling.

Mayor David Miller said he’s not surprised to hear TIFF is such a big news story.

“TIFF is now the most important film festival in the world. It’s an extraordinary success,” he said, although he stopped short of agreeing with Handling that it should get more funds from any level of government as a result.

The challenge, said Miller, is to use the strength of TIFF to promote Toronto in other ways – as an international business centre, a great place to make films as well as see them, a great place to visit.

Other important Canadian news stories included the AIDS/HIV conference in August 2006, and the Canadian mining industry, which is closely watched in Australia and South Africa. The Dawson College shooting was the biggest news story in Montreal during the period covered by the survey – May 1, 2006 to April 30, 2007.

The arrest of 17 suspected terrorists in the Toronto area did not play as widely or as often as Leveille thought it would – it was the fifth-most reported story about Toronto worldwide, behind TIFF, the AIDS conference, the TSX and Conrad Black. He said that might be because stories about the arrests may have referred to “Canada” or “Ontario” rather than “Toronto.”

Toronto, the analysts pointed out, continues to enjoy a reputation as “Toronto the Good.” An article in one South African paper, for example, discussed whether or not rumours of a law in Toronto requiring pedestrians to give hand signals before turning were true.

But when it comes to tourism, Toronto needs help. Tourism accounted for only 1 per cent of stories about the city in the international press, compared to 6 per cent of stories about Montreal.

The survey also found that the Toronto Star was the most often cited newspaper and the University of Toronto the most-often mentioned university.

In Montreal, McGill was the university most often mentioned in the international press.

LOOK AT THE SECOND PICTURE IT IS SOOOOOOO FUNNY LIKE A SKELETON WALKING ZAMBI , I THINK SHE IS WASTED AWAY

TORONTO (CP) – The city of Toronto has temporarily become the heartthrob capital of the world as movie stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt charmed their way through the Toronto International Film Festival today.

An affable Clooney, wearing a grey suit with a black shirt, took jabs at his famous friend while promoting the stylish thriller, “Michael Clayton” at a downtown press conference.

The bearded Clooney joked that Pitt was famous for doing nothing and was in fact, “a tiny, little man.”

Pitt, meanwhile, held court over a relatively subdued press conference that immediately followed, breaking the mood with a goofy pose for photographers by sticking his finger in his ear and pretending to pick his nose.

Pitt is drumming up interest in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” a long and brooding western shot in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C. last year.

Other stars in town include Jude Law, Reese Witherspoon, Ewan McGregor, Javier Bardem and Uma Thurman.

Toronto’s 10-day movie marathon is considered among the most important festivals in the world, attracting the biggest names in the business.

With back-to-back appearances by Clooney and Pitt – close friends since they began shooting the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise – the star power at the festival reached its zenith today.

The bearded Clooney frequently had the media in stitches, often making Pitt the butt of his jokes.

When pressed to identify by name what celebrities he said were famous “for doing nothing,” Clooney replied: “OK, Brad Pitt.”

“You know, I don’t like him,” he added later. “He’s very short. I don’t know whether you’ve seen him in person but he’s a tiny little man.”

At one point, he refused to answer personal questions by telling a reporter “next question, have a nice day” and later joked about using a staple gun to control a group of horses in the film.

“Oh, take it easy!” he said as reporters feigned shock.

Clooney’s appearance before the media came the day after he showed up an hour early for the red carpet gala for “Michael Clayton,” chatting cheerfully with many of the assembled fans.

Pitt, who just learned he’d won the best actor award at the Venice Film Festival, talked about trying to live his life under relentless media attention.

He and actress Angelina Jolie have four children and are constant tabloid fixtures.

“I know the deal, I understand the tradeoff,” said Pitt, dressed in a white jacket and wearing his signature tweed cap.

“The only time it has crossed the line is when it’s a full-frontal assault on the kids. Unfortunately, there is no line with family…. And that really bothers me.”

Clooney’s latest film is a dazzling, smart and suspenseful ride that sees the actor play against type. His character Michael Clayton, a troubleshooter at a high-powered New York law firm, is broke, alone, seemingly depressed and unable to eradicate his employer’s latest headache: that of a senior partner who’s apparently gone mad in the courtroom.

Tom Wilkinson is outstanding as the lawyer in question who becomes convinced the agribusiness conglomerate he’s defending in a class-action lawsuit is knowingly making products that kill people.

Pitt returns to familiar territory in “Jesse James” – he’s had success in the past with period pieces, including “Legends of the Fall” and “A River Runs Through It.” The film takes a contemplative look at the relationship formed between James, considered America’s most legendary gunslinger, and the fresh-faced Ford, who is barely 20 years old.

Casey Affleck is a standout as the sneaky Ford.

the real tita @ 09/08/2007 at 5:52 pm

Hi, guli, MF, coal,sheri, lwicd, and other JP fans. Yeah, can’t wait for tonight. (Please Angie, be there so ariel can see you!)

I love it that Brad won! Yay…but poor Casey Affleck should have won something too. I didn’t know they’d be competitors for the same award. Why couldn’t they do one leading and one supporting? Oh,well. Didn’t he still have that movie with his brother?

At any rate, wishing Brad luck in TIFF. Hope he and Angie walk the red carpet tonight. This has more meaning for them cause this is where they shared a lot of good memories. Maybe they can relive some of those after the festivities.

I thought the debate over the V article had been settled. Yet I see hatters/trolls still staying that Brad wants x, or similar dribble, and never shows affection to Angie. The man said he left the barren x for Angie. What more does he need to say?

Also what difference does it make if Angie is in Toronto or not. Everyone in the know universe knows that if she is there Brad will hop on her as soon as they are in their car. If she is not there Brad will catch either a fast train, or a slow plane. Because baby knows that he is a coming. Forgive me Joe Crocker for taking liberies with your song.

Trolls and haters are losing their sh*t fast. This is just the beginning. Can’t wait for the HW premier. :lol: :lol: :lol: Peace.

#242: I thought you said that nobody liked them? Will you trolls make up your mind? Either they are hated and nobody pays attention to them or they’re so popular that they’re able to win awards over the more talented ones. Flipflopping will make you dizzy. Stay on one side of the issue and you duke it out with the other side! That’s how a winner acts. Losers go all over the place that’s why they lose!

I want see a Matt Bamon

TORONTO (Reuters) – When it comes to the pitfalls of celebrity, Brad Pitt knows a thing or two more than Jesse James, the 19th century outlaw he portrays in his new movie.

Pitt has found one key way to stay grounded while paparazzi and tabloid reporters swarm around: focus on his family.

In “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” Pitt plays the legendary bandit who was gunned down by a member of his own gang. In the movie, James becomes too consumed by his notoriety — writers hyping his every move and fans and friends hanging on — to keep a level head.

Pitt said he could “understand the surface similarities” between James’ life and his own as an international movie star but the A-list actor has found ways to keep his ego in check.

“It’s just about knowing what is of value, about understanding value,” Pitt said, ahead of the movie’s debut Saturday night at the Toronto International Film festival.

And what is “of value” to the actor?

“That I live according to my beliefs, that I just don’t play someone I respect. In fact, usually I play people I don’t respect,” he laughed.

But then Pitt paused and reflected, “And my family. Family has redefined everything for me. Everything takes a back seat, and I find it very freeing.”

Pitt, 43, soared to fame following his role as a roadside hunk in 1991′s “Thelma and Louise.” He married and divorced former “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston and his current companion is Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie, with whom he is raising four children.

MANAGING THE MEDIA

Pitt and Jolie attract massive media and fan attention. This week at the Venice film festival, a woman pushed past guards and tried to hug Pitt before being pulled away.

Pitt does his best to keep his personal life outside the media glare. But the attention and how he deals with it is relevant to his portrayal of James.

The slow-paced movie is not an old-style, shoot-’em-up Western. At more than 2 1/2 hours, it delves into James’ personality as he grapples with the pop culture of the late 19th century that made the killer an idol.

“In some ways, (the movie) deals with the nature of celebrity and the trappings of celebrity, getting lost behind that image and not knowing how to get around it,” Pitt said. “Not only celebrity but the wanting to get next to celebrity — this idea that self-worth is connected to fame.”

The other key figure in the film is Robert “Bob” Ford,” played by Casey Affleck, who worshiped James as a youth, rides with the James gang as a man and eventually shoots his idol in the back.

Early reviews were mostly good and on Saturday, Pitt was given a best actor award from the Venice film festival.

“I was really surprised and remain surprised. I really didn’t expect it.” Pitt told reporters at a news conference at Toronto. “It’s great fun.”

BIG SHOCKER!

George Clooney mentions Brad at every given opportunity at his press conference. Honestly, it’s getting tiring now. Doesn’t this man have any else in his life to mention.

If Angie or Brad was in the same place where Matt Damon is they would be screaming that they are hated and that everyone is sick of them and all. But now I doubt if they will say that everybody hates Matt Damon.LOL!!

ANGELINA JOLIE COMING SOON TO COATBRIDGESep 6 2007

By Robert Mitchell

THE Coatbridge writer behind Angelina Jolie’s new blockbuster wants to bring the world premiere to his home town next year.

Mark Millar has already discussed his plans for the $110 million film called Wanted with backers Universal Pictures and is determined it will be shown for the first time in the Showcase Cinema.

Superstar Jolie has just finished filming the action movie with hotly-tipped Scots actor James McAvoy and it will be released next March.

Coatbridge man Millar is pictured on the right in an Advertiser world exclusive with the two stars – as this is the first shot of them which has been released from the film set.

Millar joked: “It would be amazing for my family to go because it would mean they wouldn’t need to get a taxi.”

Story continues

ADVERTISEMENT

The plans to hold the world premiere of the film – which is based on Millar’s hit comic of the same name – are very real.

Millar added: “When I was out in America they were talking about the premiere and I thought ‘Hang on, James and I are both Scottish.’

“And the PR woman, I was amazed, she said that was a great idea. If it’s in Scotland I don’t think it really matters where it is, so why not the Showcase? And that’s the cinema I always went to in Coatbridge.

“When the Regal closed down in whenever it was we had no place to go for years until the Showcase opened and it was like an oasis.”

The multi-million dollar action movie sees McAvoy star as a 20-something loser who joins an underground cult of supervillains that secretly runs the world. He signs up in a bid to gain revenge for the death of his father, the world’s deadliest killer.

Jolie plays an assassin who teaches him the ropes and the movie has also attracted Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman as a criminal mastermind.

The film is tipped to be one of the big hits of 2008 and Hollywood royalty could be coming to Coatbridge if the premiere goes ahead at the Showcase (pictured below).

Millar said: “It would be the principals who turned up, Angelina and James and maybe Morgan Freeman as well. Certainly Angelina and James would be contracted to come and where Angelina goes Brad Pitt goes.

“The idea of Brad and Angelina up the Whifflet Arms, that would be something.”

Current results:

1. Angelina Jolie: 45%
2. Brad Pitt: 25%
3. George Clooney: 12%
4. Matt Bamon: 9%

And Angie is not even promoting a movie now!

===========================================================

I know some believe their hype that Angie is hated by the world. Tho, anyone with an active brain knows that isn’t true and there are thousands and thousands of people that want to meet her or to see her at any giving festival.

Go Angie!

BIG SHOCKER!

George Clooney mentions Brad at every given opportunity at his press conference. Honestly, it’s getting tiring now. Doesn’t this man have any else in his life to mention.

__________

Porgie(as PT likes calling him) also rides coattails like the X.

I swear…I may be an outsider looking in…but you kinda can tell who are users of Brad & Angelina based on who rides their coattails..

so far

George Clooney
Matt Damon

…have all joined the following:

- the X
- the Trump
- Michael Douglas
- The Views
- the Paps
- the tabloids
- the suspects in the media

….

Brad and Angie are always the big draw, no matter who attends. Cannes, Venice and Deauville were crazy full of stars this year and still all reports agree B&A drew the largest crowds and the most photographers and journalists.

So yeah, they must be hated…

NEW THREAD YOU ALL

231 the real tita

Thank you. Gawd pidgin was the word I was thinking of and couldn’t remember. It was really a really a rhetorical question. Just saying if these people are representative of x’s she is in sad company. Laura Croft Tomb Raider is on TBS. She is one of the few actress who can do any type of movie. Neither she or Brad receive the proper credit for their acting skills. Maybe that is about to change. How many actresses can look convincing going toe to toe with a man in a fight scene? She has done it in two movies. And it didn’t look strange at all.

Thank You, Looks like a nice site too.

Congratulations Brad!!! next stop..academy award!!! hooray!!

#242: I thought you said that nobody liked them? Will you trolls make up your mind? Either they are hated and nobody pays attention to them or they’re so popular that they’re able to win awards over the more talented ones. Flipflopping will make you dizzy. Stay on one side of the issue and you duke it out with the other side! That’s how a winner acts. Losers go all over the place that’s why they lose!

—-

What the hell are you talking about? Of course everyone loves Brad, he’s just overexposed and he only won because he was popular.

why -

I’ll tell you why the whole family was at Cannes and Vencice. It’s because its still SUMMER VACATION. School hasnt started yet.

filipino fan @ 09/08/2007 at 7:52 pm

congratulations brad. you deserve it.

OH MY GOD, this can’t be right…you mean over all the other worthy contenders? There is something very wrong. Popularity does not equal good acting, sorry.

So seriously, how many judges did you think Brad slept with? I’m betting 4!

==============================

I’m serious too. How many women did you husband sleep with before he found a keeper and left you. Hmmm I’d say 50 somthing. Close?

Congratulations, Honey

Somebody quoted him, but what’s wrong with leting what you do define you?! As if he wants people to think of him as something other than an actor. He’s got whare he is because he’s an actor. He didn’t get there by being a father, or an architect, or an humanitarian, or anything else. He’s here because he is an actor.

I think he’s saying it because that’s what AJ has been saying and he’s just repeating her without knowing it himself.

Good go Brad you deserved this award coming from europe.

Mr Pitt is absolutely fantastic as Jesse James – he is so worth this award imo! I really hope he gets the Oscar too!

LOOK AT BRAD’S NOSE, THE NOSTROLS SOOOOOOOO BIG BE CAREFUL BRAD A MOUSE DOEN’T GO IN THEM.

LOOK AT BRAD’S NOSE, THE NOSTROLS SOOOOOOOO BIG BE CAREFUL BRAD A MOUSE DOEN’T GO IN THEM.

man he is so old,and in this picture he looks like a carpenter

Yay (that’s what it looks like Brad is saying in that picture, LOL!). Congratulations to Brad and all the other winners. Really good news.

HE IS SAYING HEY LOOK AT MY NOSTRILS, SEE HOW BIG MINE ARE.

Bravo, Brad, looking forward to the oscars!

He is 43. So why should not he look old. But compare him with other 43 year olds. He is like vintage wine. Getting better as he ages. And if he wins Oscar, how proud those four kids should be. Mom and dad both Oscar winners!!!

i don’t think that matt and george ride brad’s coattails at all…i just think that they know their going to get asked questions about brad and that’s why george just pre-empts with remarks about brad in the beginning of his interviews to get it out of the way.

and equally brad often times gets asked about george and the other o13 actors…everyone knows that they are all pals.

anyone knows what happened to pitt impressions??? they use to be a great source of news and pics

Brad and Angie Burn it Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would be too awesome if they both get best actor awards next year!

In an article recently, brad referred to the family as a band…nice!

252 AWARDS

BEN AFFLECK WON THIS AWARD LAST YEAR AND HE GOT NOMINATED FOR A GOLDEN GLOBE BUT NOT FOR THE OSCARS-NOTHING IS GURANTEED IN LIFE

——–

Helen Mirrem won the best actress last year and continue to win every award till Oscar, Ang Lee won the best picture , and best director on 2005 for Brokeback and continue to sweep every award till Oscar.Yeah , not guarantee, but there’s a big chance than nothing at all.
and to sam troller, GC, Tommy lee Jones, Russell Crowe, Christain Bale were also in the competition but BRAD PITT won !!!! hahahaha.

Congratulations Brad!!!

Congrats Cate!

charlotte @ 09/09/2007 at 5:09 am

good for him! brad sure does look happy in that picture haha…
its so adorable how angie was carrying maddox. that was probably because angie wanted to get away from the paps quick and she didnt have a bodyguard around. anyhow, maddox looks amused…as always!

According to Reuters it ended on a sour note. The reporters and critics
booed when it was announced. They called it baffling because Casey Affleck was widely considered to have stolen every scene.

Angie – please put that child down. If I even tried to pick my six year old up he would look at me and say “I’m not a baby momma” Let the kid walk – he’s bigger than you are (regarding weight)

pink_driven joliepitt @ 09/09/2007 at 8:30 pm

Congratulations, Brad. We’re all very proud and happy for you. May God continue to bless you in all you do!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO

AddictedtoBAMPZs @ 09/10/2007 at 12:43 am
