Brad Pitt & Jesse James: Real-life Relatives

Brad Pitt plays the title role in The Assassination Of Jesse James but according to Inside Edition, Brad and Jesse are real-life relatives.

According to Eric James, a descendant of Jesse James, Brad is a distant cousin of the infamous outlaw group Dalton Gang. A Dalton apparently married an Ogle who married a Pitt.

Inside Edition informed Brad of his “criminal” past at last night‘s NYC premiere, and a stunned Brad responded, “I did not know that. I’ll have to look that up.”

    i just read an article about brad and angelina at apparently pro JA website…I don’t understand why some people are still fuming about Brad and Jen’s divorce…let’s face it, marriage doesn’t fail just overnight. There’s problems within the marriage over period of time that wasn’t resolved. Let it go people. Just let Brad and angelina and their kids live their lives. Let it go so Jen Aniston can also live her life. I hope she will also find her soulmate as she had said in one of her interviews in the past with Diane Sawyer that Brad is not her soulmate.

    Hey, this is so new it’s not even a page long. Jesse James was a good looking dude. Maybe they are related. Brad looks real good too as him. Hope your movie makes a lot of money, Mr. Pitt aside from critical acclaim.

    Not many families do a geneology chart. Not unusual for him to not know.
    Tom Hanks and Camille Cosby (Bill Cosby’s wife) have a distant ancestor in common. One of those PBS shows found it out. They did not know. Mrs. Cosby’s maiden name is Hanks. So, it is believeable Mr. Pitt was not aware of this. Interesting and spooky. I wonder if any relation to Sandra Bullocks husband as he claims to be a Jesse James descendant. HMMMMMMM?

    Luv Days of Heaven if this film is anything like that would be great (It’s a Terrance Malick film). Rent it if you have a chance. Will see AOJJ first weekend out.
