Brad & Angelina: Most Powerful Pair On The Planet

Brad & Angelina: Most Powerful Pair On The Planet

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have topped the Hollywood power league, according to the Guinness World Records. The power couple was judged from a combination of Internet searches, press stories and earnings.

Though Brad & Angie may be the most powerful, Britney Spears is still the most searched person on the Internet.

In weekend box office office news, Brad‘s latest screwball spy comedy, Burn After Reading, opened at No. 1 with an estimated $19.4 million.

The Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen directed the movie, which also stars George Clooney John Malkovich.

    I do so love the Brange. I saw the movie Friday and thought it was really funny. Brad does comedy and weird very well. I saw the second show and everyone in the theater were laughing out loud. We were all laughing pretty much at the same time and parts. There are some shocking surprises. I won’t give anything away for those who have not seen it yet. But be prepared.

    Off topic.. I saw some pictures from the movie The Time Traveler Wife..I hope that is the right title. anyway I had heard that Brad’s production company Plan B was producing that movie. If that is the case could someone post and let me know.

    Well I am glad about the news of Brad/Angie. This has been a great year for the pair. Hit movies, Twins, and much recognition for their talent and humanitarian works. I am so looking forward to seeing them together in October or late September when Changeling premiers. I hope Angie has taken care of herself. I hope she has kept or put on a few pounds. It would be great to see her in ideal shape. I am a huge fan, but even I recognized that she had lost too much weight. She has had time to heal from her mother’s lost (well heal as much as anyone can when you go through that kind of lose). And the twins I’m sure are thriving and growing. We have not really seen her in about 3 months. Gosh that is a long time. I really need a fix. She and Brad do a Red Carpet like no one else. Just a joy to behold. If some of the Oscar buzz holds up, we have a lot of Red Carpets to see.

    Well, I loved the movie, and encourage everyone to check it out. I posted on another thread that it was like a short story…Weird, Funny, Crazy and Strange… Just my kind of movie.

    Ughh… I am just Burned after Reading of these two…

    Brads character ‘Chad’ was so indearing to me….

    (possible spoiler alert after this point)…

    I too noticed that ‘Chad’ was very one dimensional in terms of our knowing anything about his life other than that of the gym and his interest in these personal files found in the gym, but I think this was done on purpose, and to the credit of the film…

    Chad’s innocence and sweetness came out in several moments….like when he was sitting down at the counter with Frances character, and she mentioned the liposuction that she couldnt afford unless they successfully got this money for Osborn Cox CD file. Chad puts his arm around her to comfort her…

    He also displays sensitivity and innocence when he is on the phone with Osborne Cox. When Mr. Cox gets upset, and Frances character starts yelling at him from the other phone receiver, you get the sense in ‘Chad’s’ expression and demeanor that he never intended to be mean or to upset the guy….he merely wanted to get a reward for the return of the item…

    …His mortified expression when Cox starts insulting him over the phone iconveys that he is a person ‘in over his head’, and that he never intended the phone-call to take such a ‘negative’ turn…

    Also, during the moment of the scene in the closet when George Clooney’s character finally discovers him hiding….WOW…, the look on ‘Chad’s’ face is almost like it was saying… ‘okaaay…you got me…’ and in those brief seconds…it was so childlike, that what happens next is certainly a jolt to the senses.

    I really like what Brad did with the small but integral character CHAD in Burn After Reading, and I’ve already seen the movie TWICE. I love the audience reaction to certain scenes….and again, this movie character exemplifies the theory that Brad is one of the FEW ACTORS who challenges himself in roles that subbordinate his ‘cool’ persona and takes risks that other actors with his power and ‘hunky’ status would NEVER dare make. He is not afraid to make a fool out of himself…and ALL his mannerisms…(including the way he put his hand up to his nose when Malcovitch punched him in the car scene)….were that of an ENTIRELY new character VERY UNLIKE HIMSELF. That takes guts.

    …No box office totals, pathetic ex-wife, snarky comments, or taboid lies will every minimize the talent, sensitivity, sexiness, uniqueness, and international awareness Brad Pitt has as an actor and a person in the entertainment industry .

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Brad Pitt. He simply rocks.

    Miss you Angie!

    We all knew this about them but it is nice to see them ‘officially’ recognized for what is patently obvious.

  • Please

    The funny thing is that you know that Brad & Angelina could give two sh_ts about these kinds of things. They are about family and their community. They could care less about stupid labels or being the most popular. It’s great for fans though.
