Brad Pitt: Happy Birthday, Pax!

Brad Pitt: Happy Birthday, Pax!

USA Today has a great new article on Brad Pitt and David Fincher, the director for their upcoming age-reversing film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Here are two of the most interesting paragraphs from said piece:

“To play Button as a senior citizen, [Brad] had to be caked in makeup and wear prosthetic noses and scalps. For much of the movie, he abandons his own body entirely, providing a face and voice that are digitally imposed on other actors including a dwarf, a disabled man and children of all ages.”

“The [Button] set was placed on ‘Pitt Patrol.’ There were body doubles and decoy cars. Pitt‘s driver never crossed an intersection when it turned green. He waited for it to turn yellow to leave law-abiding photographers at the red light, though few obeyed the signal.”

Check out the full article at USAToday.com. Button opens on Christmas Day.

Today is Pax Jolie-Pitt‘s 5th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAX!!!

    You are so handsome Brad, I will commit a sin for lusting for you if you have a wife.
    BUT EVERYTIME YOU HAVE SEX IS A SIN. BECAUSE SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE IS BREAKING THE COMMANDMENTS OF G-D. FORNICATION IS A SIN. WHY MESS UP WITH SEX. SEX IS SACRED.YOU CAN NOT DENY IT ANYMORE THAT THERE ARE THREE CHILDREN WHO WERE BORN INTO THIS WORLD OUT OF WEDLOCK. YOUR BIOLOGICAL KIDS. OBEDIENCE TO G-D IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE.

  • Orig Ruth

    Thanks guli for bring the interview over, I really enjoyed it.

  • dialectic

    Happy Birthday Pax!

    I just love how you are such a wild child, so full of life and mischief. I am sure you bring so much fun and joy to your family.

    Absolutely adorable.

    Enjoy your special day with your gorgeous family little darlin’!

  • neil

    I didn’t know they were ‘buds. Good for Brad that he along with Fincher had the stones and integrity to let the film, ‘Seven’ be what it was meant to be; disturbing and brilliant. The more I learn about him the more I understand why Angie HAS HER MAN.

    Guli -

    Thanks for the links to the YouTube links for the Culture Show. It’s nice to see an interview where the interviewer has his shite together and it’s about her work and not the tabloid BS. Unfortunately I think what he doesn’t get about Angie doing the action roles is that it’s a release for her – a way to escape the seriousness of the other roles and real life. I think if she did nothing but movies like Gia, GI, Changeling…it would keep her in a dark place emotionally that she really doesn’t need to be full-time. NOBODY needs to be there full-time!

    Happy Birthday Pax

    Fun Interview. Does anyone know how the studio wanted to change the ending of Seven?

  • debra77

    I read the USA Today article. It was well done. Brad and David are obviously great friends. He has that same joking dry humor with George Clooney as well. I am so excited about this film. The reviews have been very good. Not just for the film itself, but Brad’s performance. Coming off BAR this has been a great year for him. He is making some interesting film choices. Much better then 4 years ago. Anyway can you believe that Pax is 5 years old. Time as gone by.
    Brad has a magazine cover and interview for the January issue of some magazine I don’t know which, if someone knows, please post in your comments.

    Also Brad will be on the Today Show (Tuesday, Dec. 2), Larry King (coming soon) and Charlie Rose. Don’t know the dates of the last two.

    Can’t wait to hear what he has to say. I just love him.

  • http://justjared dina #1

    guli, thanks for posting all three portions of the interview.

    Lady G, I have been asking about you for a long time. I have missed you something terrible. I hope you are doing well. Please come back to JJ’s and post. I saved those pictures you posted for me of Brad and ZZ in central park. Hope to read your comments soon. Peace

    Absolutely agree. Gone in 60 , she needed to get over GI and BC. TR2 help her get thru her divorce with BB (just like Wanted helped her to get thru her mother’s passing) After that it was just her and Mad, she couldn’t stay in a dark places emotionally and be a “good mom” to her son thus until she got with Brad she didn’t take any roles that was emotionally draining.

    PT–no one can do that full time…When I watched that interview…I was like OMG…off course she needs a break from that emotional turmoil and make fun/physical movies…. If she was NOT a good actor it wouldn’t get to her…BUT..she happens to be a great talented one…me thinks our kids and their kids will talk about….we are watching a legend at the age of 33… JMHO!
