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.

    Jolie confidants: ‘ET’ knew twins source fake

    “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.”
    ————
    ET producer had been exchanging E-mails with an imposter for a while. That imposer had been sending wrong information for a year and they belieaved it.

    OMG, finally some “investigative” journalism from Associated Press. I thought they and Reuters and AFP have forgotten how as far as the JOlie Pitts and the celebrity world are concerned.

    Poor Holly. Hope she doesn’t get too upset about this being probably in the last trimester of her own pregnancy.

    #58: Stupid peasant! Artwork furniture is not to be sat on.

    Brad buys rare or limited edition artwork and furniture.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    That metal couch that Angelina was lying back against in the VF interview –owned by Brad, is worth $US1.5m when last auctioned..

    Of course Brad owns the couch. Can you imagine the photographer and VF carting a 1.5 million dollar couch to Malibu?/ Think of the insurance when you transport the damn thing. Assuming he paid US$300,000 (which is more than what an average home in some areas of the US costs), for it, he would still have made a 5 times return for it if he sells it for 1.5m But of course, with a provenance like Brad Pitt, it would probably fetch more than 1.5m.

    Hows that for an investment return?

  • lylian

    The table looks interesting. Can’t say I would have picked it. On the issue of a comfortable couch, I’m with x on that one!!!

    Someone wrote up thread – oh to be rich. But the thing is, it’s not about being rich that matters per se. It’s how you spend your money. You can be very rich and do very little with the money. Look at Donald Trump who spends his money on himself vs the likes of George Soros and Bill gates who spend their money on making the world a better place. You can take the money and travel, explore the world, fund a wild life sanctuary, fund a children’s home, purchase contemporary art which supports young and up coming artistes whilst giving your self the sensual pleasure of seeing and living with the art. Or you can take the same money and put it in a bank account and go to the same old places for holidays, year in year out.

    I love the story of the Brothers = doug and james working together. It seems they all get along just fine.

    Posted by ExtraTV Staff on June 4, 2008 2:40 PM

    ******************************************
    I believe that Dustin Hoffman told the truth about the Aug due date.

    +++++++++++++++

    Dustin pulled that date out of his look-alike’s ass. There’s no way he’d tell Angie’s due date to the media. He’s long had a love-hate relationship with the media himself. In mid-May Angie said she had a “few months”. “A few” is 2…or 3.

    If you stop to consider most twins arrive early, at about the 36 week mark…that chops 1 month off the “few”. So even if Dustin wasn’t kidding…there’s no way she’d go to Aug 19 anyway. Mid-July is as far as they’d probably let her go. And with her gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, edema, gout, indigestion, lactose intolerance, dust allergy, bi-monthly bikini wax skin irritation, acne and summer cold that Star and L&S says she has…

    Like I said…She’s having those babies no later than mid-July.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGIE

  • Variety

    One of the high points of the recent Cannes Film Fest was talking to Brad Pitt at the afterparty for Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, where we enjoyed some friendly cocktail banter over the appropriate length for The Assassination of Jesse James. Let’s just say that we each held our own.

    Pitt’s antics in the trailer for the Coens’ next, the CIA spoof Burn After Reading, made me laugh out loud. (The movie opens the Venice Film Festival this August.) Pitt’s a movie star–and can be very funny–look at the Oceans films and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Clooney has mined a rich comedy vein in his films for the Coens, and clearly does so here, along with Tilda Swinton and Fran McDermand

    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.

    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.

    +++++++++++++++++

    Aren’t the haters a real riot? Basel, Switzerland – hometown of my boy Roger Federer…GO ROGER! – can’t be more than a 2 hour flight from anywhere in France. It was probably a day trip and he was gone a total of 8 hours…just like if he had to schlep off to the studio or his office for work.

    Check out this list of time and distances from places in Europe to Basel. I’ll just list cities close to the area they’ve been living in…

    From Nice – 268 miles
    From Monaco – 269 miles

    The furthest city listed for France is Bordeaux at 434 miles. DAY TRIP!

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

    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.

    +++++++++++++++

    It cracks me up that the AP is breaking their backs to prove ET perpetrated a fraud and are lying about this baby story. They’re only doing it because THEY picked the story up and have egg on their face by extension because THEY didn’t check ET’s sources the way they should have. Bullshit is bullshit and bad journalism is bad journalism and it doesn’t matter if it’s coming from a tabloid, a long-running tv show or a worldwide news outlet. So who gets to investigate the AP for not verifying their story before they ran with it? Reuters?
