Brad Pitt's Table for Two

Brad Pitt's Table for Two

Brad Pitt picks up a few pieces of contemporary “design art” furniture at the Design Miami/Basel fair held at the 1920s domed Markethalle in Basel, Switzerland on Tuesday.

The father-of-almost-six paid $293,000 for a hollow white marble rococo-style table by the Dutch designer Jeroen Verhoeven at the booth of the London-based Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The 4-foot-long “Cinderella Table,” from an edition of six, is hewn from a solid block of Carrara marble.

Mr. Pitt also ordered a rug made of aluminum thread from New York dealer Cristina Grajales, said director Elizabeth Murphy. The “Silver Sky” rug, created by Colombian designer Jorge Lizarazo and woven by the Colombian-based studio Hechizoo, will be priced at a rate of $175 per square foot.

Brad was also interested in a gold lacquer-coated Fiberglas sofa by Zaha Hadid, offered by London-based dealer Kenny Schachter at $300,000.

BTW, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGELINA JOLIE! She turns 33 today.

    Charlize Theron Says Marriage Is Not for Her

    Charlize Theron Says Marriage Is Not for Her
    Despite having been with Irish-actor boyfriend Stuart Townsend for seven years, Charlize Theron feels no seven-year itch to wander – or to get married, either.

    “I think if you are in a one- or two-year relationship, love is enough. You can thrive on that,” the Monster Oscar winner, 32, tells Glamour for its July issue.

    But, adds Theron, “when you hit years three and four, you realize that if you’re going to live with somebody … you have to be nurtured emotionally and spiritually, and you have to be intrigued. Because if that intrigue runs out, you’re not going to want to go home anymore.”

    As for why Townsend is the special one for her, Theron says, “He’s got beautiful feet and hands.”

    Only what if he should feel a seven-year itch? “I’ve always said that I worry about being with a man who doesn’t flirt,” she says. “I love that Stuart can watch tennis and tell me that he’s got a crush on a tennis player. We’re not meant to just like one person. But [that] doesn’t mean you go and build a life with another person.”

    Echoing her previous sentiments, Theron, who costars with Will Smith in the upcoming Hancock, notes she is not ready for marriage. “Even when I was a little girl I never dreamed of the white dress and all of that,” she says.

    “I want to be clear: I am not judgmental about [the institution of] marriage. I am judgmental about how our government doesn’t want to see the reality of gay and lesbian marriages.”

    When the world is not obsessed yet with Brad and Angelina. People don’t know what they buy or bought, either it’s for themselves or for other reasons. Now that they are the most watch peo[le in the world they scrutinized their every, their whereabouts, what they buy, where they go, I tell it is something else. And to top it all of they praise or critized what they.

    Brad Pitt are buying these kinds of arts ever since he can afford it and nobody knows.

    So true! Art & high end design is a great investment.

    As an aspiring architect I share Brads love of good design.

    I’m green with envy!

    When I read this kind of news I’m just as excited as you guys might be about new pictures of the family.

    Thanks for the link to the article about Doug and James’s Water Project. It was a very good read. It is good to see the family bonding and working together. It must put a blow into the whiny hens’ heart to know that the families are working together for good causes. Oh well, they are still in denial so it does not matter. However, it is a great cause and I am glad they are being sucessful with it.

    ********************************************
    Thank you for the article bdj.The “family bonding” speaks volumes doesn’t it?I cannot believe the trolls are ragging about how Brad spends HIS MONEY.Worry about your own money,that’s if you have any to worry about in the first place.

    Jack Black: Angelina ‘Has a Ways to Go’
    Posted by ExtraTV Staff on June 4, 2008 2:40 PM

    Getty Images
    Expectant mom Angelina Jolie is hanging out at her French chateau, as “Extra” gets the scoop on the controversy surrounding the alleged birth of her twins — from her “Kung Fu Panda” co-star Jack Black, who dishes it’s unlikely that Angie already gave birth.

    “I think the babies would be pretty small, because my belly is bigger than hers,” said Black. “I think she’s got a ways to go.”

    “Extra” was first to debunk the story of the twins’ birth, and the entertainment show that started the false rumor is not backing down — despite a warning from Jolie’s lawyers that someone is posing as a close confidante of the actress. Reportedly, the so-called source is engaging in “a torturous impersonation of Ms. Jolie’s longtime assistant, Holly,” says Angie’s lawyer.

    When the twin tots do arrive — they will make their pictorial debut in return for some serious cash. It’s said the bidding war for the first pictures of the new members of the Jolie-Pitt brood is up to $22 million

    So Why Can’t She Sniff a Gay Midget Dwarf?

    Katie Holmes is moving to New York. Naturally, the GMD and Little Sci will be joining her. As you know, KatE is headed for Broadway to star in the production of All My Sons. Producer Eric Falkenstein says she is perfect for the part and promises her performance will blow people away.

    He also said she’s able to pick out the fraud in a crowd:

    “She’s a natural sweetheart who can sniff out phonies … Katie basically has that exact moral fiber [of her character in the play].”

    Ummm…really?

    If that’s the case, why can’t she smell a gay? Why’d she up and marry a gay?

    New York will be home to the TomKat this fall. Which means now Victoria Beckham will have to find a reason to move there too.

    #159: oh, I believe you, soopx. My aunt and uncle plus my male cousins don’t ever go to church yet they’re good people. My cousins’ wives and kids go every Sunday though. All the kids go to Catholic schools and my aunt and uncle pays for the whole lot and are very good at charitable works. I know many more people like them, as a matter of fact.

    I just wanted to correct the notion by some trolls that Angie and Brad have no intention of going to church. There must be some sort of religious instructions that have sunk in since they were both raised by believers in religion.

    Just some thoughts

    Brad’s eyes are so blue and beautiful

    Brad has had a furniture/lamp collection since he started making good money. He spoke about it in an interview a number of years ago. The interviewer noted that Brad’s collection if sold on the open market would be worth millions. Brad said that he had so many chairs he would either have to sell some of them or open up a museum.

    Lastly don’t assume Brad brought all those things for himself. Could be part of of Dubai designer job. Didn’t the article note that GRAFT and Brad would have input on the outside and inside? There is going to be a presentation soon which would probably include what type on furniture/art they want to put in the rooms

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGELINA :)

    I think she will give birth sometime in July,

    #170 The real tita sometimes it’s hard to correct the notions of some trolls because they only believe what they want.And about the Religion instrutions you are correct about that.And yes they were both were raised by believers in Religion.

  • SOOPX

    #183Carolina …Thanks for video.No wonder they carry the children.Thats a crowd in front of that store.

  • aeon

    The table is pretty cool. It is an art piece. Stupid trolls have no taste. I wonder where they shop Ikea or Walmart.

    Brad will always be cool even in his grave. This picture makes him look like a deer in headlights but maybe he was surprised by the photographer. But the man will always be sexy and cool. He can turn it on or off.

    As for him being in Switz, what is the big deal? Angie is not one to hold someone down. She probably told him to get out of her hair for a bit. But that doesn’t mean he abandoned her or they are on the rocks. They are not attached at the hip.

    I bet you he was back in her arms within a day or two because that is how they roll. They are just like that. Leave it alone stupid trolls you will never understand or have a relationship like that. I feel sooooooooooo sorry for you trolls, NOT.

    Let’s not start on organized religion….(mafioso)…you don’t want me to go there with all due respect to the fans who are religious. Enough said.

    Let me say again a very Happy Birthday to my girl, the baddest sexiest chick on the planet Ms. Angelina Jolie.

    Before reaching the hands of the birthday baby momma-slash-actress, the bouquet was inspected by security officers.

    A day prior, a truckload of fries and salad was brought to the estate. You know, Brangelina, fries aren’t really French.

    Happy birthday, Angie! We hope the fries satisfied your pregnancy cravings!

    Jolie confidants say ‘Entertainment Tonight’ knew source of Jolie birth story was fake
    By DAVID BAUDER , Associated Press

    Last update: June 4, 2008 – 6:26 PM

    NEW YORK – “Entertainment Tonight” aired a story about the birth of Angelina Jolie’s twins despite being repeatedly told beforehand that the report was based on information from someone impersonating Jolie’s assistant, according to documents and two people with knowledge of the exchange.

    The celebrity newsmagazine denied Wednesday that it knew about an impostor before the broadcast. The identity of the impostor remained unknown.

    On Friday morning, the show posted a story on its Web site and sent an e-mail alert to media outlets saying it had confirmed the birth of Jolie’s twins. The Associated Press picked up the report.

    “Entertainment Tonight” did not name its source at the time. It later revealed that the report was based on e-mails from someone it thought was Jolie assistant Holly Goline.

    Shortly after the story was posted but several hours before the broadcast aired, Goline told “Entertainment Tonight” that she was not the person with whom they had been corresponding, a person with direct knowledge of the conversation told The Associated Press. That account was confirmed by another person close to Jolie.

    “‘Entertainment Tonight’ was told before the broadcast that their information came from an impostor,” said the second person. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly.

    The people said there were several conversations Friday, by e-mail, text message and telephone, between Goline and “Entertainment Tonight.” Meanwhile, the story was quickly challenged by several other celebrity news outlets.

    The TV show stood by its story Friday night, with host Mary Hart saying on the air, “Just this morning, a source who says she was inside the delivery room tells us yes, the babies were born and yes, mother and babies are fine.”

    Later that night, the manager of Jolie’s partner, Brad Pitt, told AP that the babies had not been born.

    The show said in a statement Wednesday that it first learned of an impostor from a letter from Jolie’s attorney Monday – three days after the broadcast.

    “‘Entertainment Tonight’ takes this very seriously and is, of course, concerned that the show may have been victimized by someone allegedly posing as a member of Ms. Jolie’s team,” the statement said. “We are actively investigating the matter and are reaching out to law enforcement agencies.”

    The show has not mentioned the story on the air since the initial report, and the story has been deleted from its Web site.

    The 27-year-old program is the top-rated entertainment newsmagazine on television, with an average nightly audience of 6.6 million viewers, more than double any competitors. The twins, who Jolie says are due in August, are one of the biggest stories of the year in celebrity journalism, with their first photographs expected to fetch at least $10 million. (The first pictures of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt reportedly fetched a $4 million donation to charity from People magazine.)

    The mystery of who was sending the e-mail fit perfectly into the world of celebrity gossip, in which rumor and thirdhand sources coalesce into “facts” at the speed of the Internet. Even before the “Entertainment Tonight” report, there were international rumors of the twins’ birth, possibly started by an OK! magazine story that did not report the babies were born, but speculated on possible names.

    According to an “ET” executive, the report of the twins’ birth began with Sharlette Hambrick, an “ET” producer. Hambrick told the show that she had obtained a BlackBerry e-mail address for Goline from a contact at CNN, according to the executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to release the information.

    According to e-mails provided to AP by the show, Hambrick sent a message to the BlackBerry address asking for confirmation of “reports swirling” that Jolie had given birth.

    The reply came back: “Yes she did. I was actually in the room with her. They are doing fine and so is mom.”

    Goline has never had a BlackBerry e-mail account, one of the people with knowledge of the exchange said. Hambrick referred a call from The Associated Press to the show’s public relations representative.

    Shortly after “Entertainment Tonight” posted the story, Hambrick called the real Goline seeking more details, and Goline told her verbally and through text messages that Hambrick had been dealing with an impostor, the people with knowledge of the exchange said.

    E-mails obtained by AP show that Hambrick sent a message to Goline’s real e-mail address showing the exchange with the impostor, asking “Are you saying this is now not your e-mail address? That you did not send me these e-mails?”

    Goline responded: “This is not my e-mail.”

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGIE!!!!!!!

    As for furniture, like the lamp.
    Brad looks good to me!!!! Will gladly take him home.
    As for how much money he drops–sure other celebs drop more esp. TC and Oprah. Oprah flies to LA from Chicago just to get her nails done! It is a shame that things that Brad and Angie do are blown out of portion. They spend money just like everyone esle. They work hard and have the right to spend their money on what they want. They give to others greatly.
    Really get tired of reading the negs but learning to just ignore.

    The Daily 10 said that Brad bought two chairs and a lamp. Did not say anything about the other furniture. They said he has a 35 room mansion to fill. He looked good in the pic.

    Great article about Doug and Jamie. So glad they are working together. This is definitely the effect Angie and Brad has had on the family.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGIE!!!!!!
