Brad Pitt: I Have An Unusual Family

Brad Pitt: I Have An Unusual Family

Brad Pitt joins CNN’s Larry King on Wednesday to chat about his family, his latest movie, and his continued efforts to help rebuild New Orleans, Louisiana.

On how his kids keep him young (or not): I have so many. No, man, it wears you out. Are you kidding? I’m aging fast.

On why his family draws such attention: It’s quite complimentary. But, you know–and I think it is an interesting family. It’s not your usual family… I’m quite interested in my family, actually, so, I don’t–I certainly don’t see it as anything less than a compliment.

On having more children: I don’t know. I can’t find a reason why not–just yet.

On President-elect Barack Obama: Oh, man. I think, overnight, we redefined what America’s about. I couldn’t be any happier and more hopeful for the–for America, for the upcoming–in the upcoming years.

On the new moustache: (Joking) It’s political, Larry. It’s political. I’m making a stand for men with moustaches. I don’t think they get treated fairly… I’m currently in Berlin [Germany] now, filming a Quentin Tarantino film. And I am a man with a moustache.

    Thanks for the video and highlights from the interview. BP and the MIR Project are doing some good work in New Orleans. The houses that are being built are unique concepts with the flavor of New Orleans. The Benjamin Button Movie is getting raves and I am looking forward to seeing it.

    You know, it certainly makes me conscious of how much time do I have left. Do I — you know, is this my day? Do I have 40 years left? What do I want to do in that time? How do I want to use it? And who do I want to spend it with?

    Obviously you did not comprehend the interview or the concept behind the Benjamin Button Movie. Life is short and it is what you make. You can spend 24/7 on a blog whining about someone out their making a difference or you can get out there and live a purposeful life. No one knows how long we have on this earth and It is up to us to make the best of it or you can whine.

    Neleh, stop with the I mean no harm. No harm was taken. Girl you are the sweetest.

    alexanderina, I have been gone almost all day and the same trolls are still here talking bs. I don’t understand the need to respond to them. Everyone with a half a brain know Lainey, TC and the trolls who plop their sorry azzs here all day long everyday don’t know a d*mn thing.

    If Brad has his hand on Angie’s booty it is a pr trick. If he talks about her it is a pr trick. Who says a man or a woman has to talk about their other half every time they open their mouth. It is a very subjective thing. Brad and Angie do what they want. They play the interview by ear.

    These trolls are not worth the paper on the soles of Brad’s or Angie’s shoes. Fans should ignore them. But for some reason some fans just love to engage them. Which just encourages them to continue on in their maddness. Remember fans can only win by ignoring them. Peace

    Another Gushing Review for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    By Ryan Parsons

    If only because I think the story sounds neat and the trailers incredibly cool, I have been anxiously waiting for both media updates on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button along with the film’s theatrical release. With the month now here, I have also begun following the early reviews of the film closely as well and, to my relief, they all have (so far) been positive.

    The latest review to surface is gushing and, if you’re not hyped on the idea of aging backwards already, this could get you in theaters during opening week.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Reviewed

    The good people at AICN have posted a new review for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button that not only compares it to others you might have seen, but also gives it a big thumbs up.

    … the film rests on the shoulders of two actors above all others. Cate Blanchett has long since proven herself to be a versatile talent, but part of what she does so well is vanish into her characters. Here, she’s playing a role that doesn’t really offer much in the way of camouflage. Playing Daisy across the span of her whole life, Blanchett has to impart the stages in this girl’s evolution, and she does it with delicacy and real wisdom. Towards the end of the film, as Benjamin reaches childhood, her work just becomes devastating. She and Pitt have an amazing rapport, and his role, which is so technically demanding, could have easily swallowed him whole. But over the years, Pitt’s proven that he’s at his best when he’s being challenged, and he does the best work of his career here. Moving, human, and heartbreaking, he makes Benjamin Button into a real person, not just a novelty.

    THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON is that rare film that manages to encompass the whole of the human experience in a mere two and a half hours, and I feel like I saw it at the right moment in my life. It’s something I’ll return to any number of times in the future, and it’s rich and strange and wonderful enough that I expect I’ll find something fresh in it every time. My profound thanks to every person involved in making this magic live and breathe, and I hope all of you reading this embrace the film the same way when it opens on Christmas day.

    The snippet above is obviously from the bottom half of the review. To see the comparisons the report makes, check out the entire review for Benjamin Button at AICN.

  • GOOD VICTORIA

    Love Brad and Angie !!!!!!……..He looks hot with facial hair, or without ……I don’t believe their marriage will end in ” 6 months “….That is ridiculous and stupid…….NUMBER # 7…..So, if we see ANY man holding his wife’s or girlfriends hand, or his hand on her back, do we assume they are after some P.R.?………STUPID !!!!….It really sounds like you are extremely jealous…..What ” madness ” are you talking about ?

    AWWW, so handsome and so interesting. I love watching Brad’s interviews, he is so animated, especially talking about MIR. I love that he is so committed to making it work!!! He must be so fulfilled now, having Angelina in his life, having his beloved kids, having a thriving career and a booming production company, and having his interest in Architecture result in a very interesting and fruitful undertaking.

    Thanks for the new thread, Jared!

  • SERA

    Rotf Whatever #11 what is your problem? Brad and Angie are obviously happ. They both seem to be a little gun shy about what they say. Look at what happens when they do talk about how much they love each other. It gets turned around and disected and twisted. I am not sure why people can not just let them be and pray that they continue to be happy and make it for their unsual beautiful family.

    INSIDER @ 12/02/2008 at 11:26 am

    ‘oooo’ is the same jealous obsessed US ragazine website troll aka jen hen…who always posts these highly literate yet obviously insanely delusional Angelina hater rants on the US rag site, immediately after US posts a thread on Angelina. This hen has a penchant for doing this just as BRAD appears in public, glowing and happy about his career and life – which tells me this former Hollywood professional (most likely someone who was in Brad’s circle and then wasn’t once he left Aniston) is irrational and unhinged. The most likely culprit is Kristen Hahn, the woman who was let go for participating in Aniston and Huvane’s efforts to destroy Brad. Now she’s unemployed, and pinning her hopes on the least talented TV ‘friend.’ You know the ‘friend’ who sent Maniston the cartoon about harming Angelina – same quack Kristen. The clues are her insistence on haranguing Brad & Angelina about the critically acclaimed A Mighty Heart, the professional industry jealousy just oozes from her pores – she’s close to becoming a danger to herself..her delusions are most evident in her bizarre insistence that the Walmart ninnies (who vote on ‘Team Jen,’ when she and PR flack Huvane deliberately start a faux conflict with Angelina, 4 years and 6 kids later in order to f-ck with Brad), actually MATTER. Pathetic. No thanks Kristen and the ‘collective’ (flacks hired by Huvane) we’ll take the Academy who gave Angelina her OSCAR, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assoc (who gave Angie her 3 Golden Globes including her nomination last year as BEST ACTRESS), Time & Newsweek who consistently have voted her The Most Influential, the UN who has awarded her the UN Global Humanitarian Award, and every peer in Hollywood who adores and is inspired by her, including her fellow SAG actors who nominated her last year as well and have given her two previous SAG awards,and the CCA (Critics Choice Awards – who also nom’d her for Best Actress last year).This insane delusional HW hack & friend of Aniston who is obsessed by Angelina will soon be found out.

  • Marieme

    Just to clarify since I just finished watching this interview, he responded to (dumb) Larry’s comment about having “so many kids” by repeating it and laughing. Hence: “I have so many”. It was a cute moment and didn’t read right here.

    And my God he looked so good. Ange is one lucky lady. It’s so funny how I only started being a Brad fan after he left Maniston. I didn’t really like him before. I didn’t get them as a couple and found them both to be pretty superficial. My opinion of him has really bounced 180. Brad’s a terrific guy. It was there all along.

  • guli

    Thanks Jared!!! He was awesome…I just love this family…nothing or no one can change how much they love each other….

    Eco-Friendly Playground to be Dedicated to the Children of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward

    - On Make it Right’s One-Year Anniversary, PlayGreen Initiative Brings Together Kellogg Company, KOMPAN and BNIM to Dedicate Kellogg Park, the U.S.’s First Digital, Eco-Friendly Playground -

    Dec. 3, 2008
    After Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans on August 29, 2005, much of the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans suffered catastrophic flooding and the vast majority of its residents lost their homes. Since the disaster, not a single playground has been built in the area, and the children of this part of New Orleans do not have a proper place to play. The Make it Right Foundation, headed by the actor and activist Brad Pitt, partnering with PlayGreen Initiative, will dedicate Kellogg Park on Wednesday, December 3, 2008, aided by donations from Kellogg’s Corporate Citizenship Fund, KOMPAN, Inc., and BNIM, a leading architectural firm.

    Nearly $500,000 worth of equipment, landscaping, and labor/services were donated to the park and playground, including a $300,000 KOMPAN donation in equipment, a $100,000 grant from Kellogg’s Corporate Citizenship Fund and services provided by BNIM Architects and John Williams Architects.

    BNIM, a national leader in sustainable design and also one of 12 design firms for the Make it Right Project, designed the overall site, and JWA, a New Orleans architectural firm, served as a local collaborator. Both the equipment and the site are designed using sustainable methods and materials that minimize the impact on the environment while providing exceptional play value and a quality community gathering place. The play space will be constructed in an environmentally sustainable way, using local suppliers, native plantings, and natural means to control water flow, thereby reducing pollution, runoff, and other problems associated with asphalt and more traditional playground design. The playground equipment is constructed using sustainable methods including the use of non-toxic, recyclable and environmentally friendly materials. Solar energy will also be used to power the electronic components on the new equipment.

  • Plan B working

    So, while Angie is being hung out to dry for “exploiting” her personal life for fame and monetary gain, Pitt describes himself as “private and wants to keep things close to his chest”? Who was it who told Oprah about Pax peeing in the timeout chair? Who took pictures of his children and their mother’s T & A for publication in W magazine? (by the way, those were some of the worst pics of Angelina that have ever been taken). All you loons who bought the mag and rhapsodized other the pics clearly suffer from the “emperor is wearing new clothes” syndrome. Again, who was it who fake cried in an interview with Diane Sawyer about having family on his mind? Remember the time he talked about Zee’s horrible diaper rash which he describes as almost disfiguring? I guess privacy means different things to some people
    And yet, his role in the twins’ and Shiloh’s photo deal with People was conspicuously missing from the CAA sanctioned hit piece against Angelina. I find that hard to believe from the self proclaimed “zen master” of media. He and Aniston are two peas in a pod, cut from the same cloth.
    Poor Angelina. No wonder she’s back to looking gaunt again. I realize she wants her children to grow up with a father unlike the childhood she had, but this can’t be healthy for her. Her kids would be better served with a mum who is happy and fulfilled. As long as she stays with Pitiful, her life is going to be miserable.

    Didn’t he say talking about his family in interviews “cheapened” them somehow? That’s all he seems to ever talk about in interviews…

    Neleh this is so funny, but so true. You have the best quotes. Peace

    Don’t approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back,
    or a fool from any side.

  • A Plea to Jared from FANS

    Dear Jared –

    I know it pays to be titilating, but since Brad never said what you have as a title: ‘I have an unusual family,’ and since what he actually said, ‘it’s not your usual family,’ – you might want to correct that header.

    PLEASE.

    Otherwise, you become the number one reason of what Brad was talking about — people twisting his words — this family has their words twisted and mischaracterized enough, with all of the jealous haters, trolls, blogs, tabloids and all sorts of bottom feeders with various agendas misinterpreting what they say.

    You owe it to the fans to be accurate – to correctly quote them, and not TRICK people into clicking on, and wondering why in the f*ck would brad say something like THAT??

    Turns out, uh…he did NOT.

    Can you please, PLEASE not play into the hands of the people who think nothing of putting the wrong words in their mouths, and mischaracterizing them?

    It happens too often, to let something even as trivial as your thread title go.

    Do us that favor — be accurate.

    Please stop making thread titles of things Brad and Angelina did NOT say.

    Thank you.

    ______________________
    I think he meant he doesn’t like talking about them because when he does, snippets get taken out of context and turn up on celebrity blogs and tabloids where hateful people dissect and twist them ad infinitum. I would feel bad too if I mentioned something about my son and his name and the story ended up on the cover of a crappy magazine. I would want to protect my children from that, just as Brad does. Otherwise I’m sure he would babble on about them because obviously he loves them all immensely and can hardly help himself.

    oh my god again the schizo troll is talking to himself, that’s what happen when you leave your ffugly mental ward in the hater’s place. You are much needed there.
