  • Make it Right

    Dear Make It Right Community,

    This holiday season we are celebrating the return of families into new Make It Right homes in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans.

    In honor of those families and the many supporters who helped us reach this milestone, we want to say thank you on behalf of the Make It Right community. You have helped make this a very special holiday season for families who lost so much during Hurricane Katrina.
    For former residents of the Lower 9th Ward still trying to return home, this is why Make It Right exists. More than three years after Hurricane Katrina, many residents of this community are still displaced and struggling to rebuild their lives. We started the Make It Right Foundation to provide a hand up to those families who desire to return home and to help preserve the unique culture, heritage and spirit of the Lower 9th Ward.

    With your generous support, we can continue to rebuild a neighborhood of safe, sustainable, and affordable homes in one of the hardest hit communities in Louisiana.

    Thank You and Happy Holidays,
    Tom Darden
    Executive Director

    Please consider Make It Right in your “End of Year” giving plans.

    Brad Pitt on Shiloh’s film debut

    By Ruben V. Nepales
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    First Posted 21:08:00 12/11/2008

    LOS ANGELES, California—There’s an extra reason to watch Brad Pitt’s beautiful, exquisite film, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”

    Shiloh, the daughter of Brad and Angelina Jolie, makes her movie debut with a cameo appearance. Speaking to reporters last Saturday morning at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Brad explained how Shiloh snagged a short scene from the twin toddlers who were alternately playing his daughter in “Benjamin Button.”

    “Babies have their own schedule,” he said. “Sometimes they’re upset and that’s it. We had one particular day where both twins who were in the film were crying and colic or something. Time was going by. We were sitting and waiting so we just sat Shiloh in. She’s in one of the little shots. I think they digitally changed the color of her hair.”

    Last Monday evening, at a private cocktail party in Century City following the premiere of “Benjamin Button,” Angelina Jolie’s eyes sparkled when we mentioned Shiloh’s brief debut.

    Fate couldn’t have decided on a more significant movie for Shiloh to debut in. “Benjamin Button” will rank as one of her dad’s best films. The movie, directed by David Fincher (“Se7en,” “Fight Club,” “The Panic Room”) and written by Eric Roth, was based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story of the same name. Fitzgerald’s tale of a man aging backward was inspired by a Mark Twain quote: “Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of 80 and gradually approach 18.”

    Significant progress in head placement and digital effects made it possible for David to show Brad going from a man born in his eighties who is growing younger as the story develops. Cate Blanchett, brilliant as usual, Tilda Swinton, Taraji P. Henson, Julia Ormond, Jason Flemyng, Jared Harris and Elias Koteas are also in the cast of this film set from the end of World War I to the 21st century.

    “The most difficult part was just keeping track of the math,” admitted Brad, who looked sharp in a bold print-on-print three-piece suit by Tom Ford. He explained, “Literally, we had to have someone on the set who had to remind us before the takes and who would say, for example, ‘Benjamin appears 67 now so he’s actually 14.’”

    Pure honesty

    “As far as my approach is concerned, it was just about pure honesty for me; just how honest we can be with it,” he continued. “Fincher described it really well when we started. It was about the story of a man’s life and the people who leave dents along the way—people who make impressions. I always carried that with me … Fortunately, we had some fantastic actors from Cate, Tilda, Taraji, Jared to Jason so … I didn’t have to push anything up a hill, so to speak.”

    “My knees are starting to go,” he said in half-jest about how he related to his character’s aged appearance in the beginning of the film. But as the movie progresses, as Benjamin gets younger-looking, David, aided by cinematographer Claudio Miranda, photographs Brad in what will probably be among the star’s most iconic cinematic images. The golden boy images of Robert Redford in “The Great Gatsby” come to mind.

    Asked if the film’s recurring themes of life and death prompted him to think about his mortality, Brad answered, “The thing I walked away with is that time is short. I have to make sure I don’t waste those moments in any kind of pettiness, bitterness, laziness and so on. I surround myself with what’s most important to me and with those people who are most important to me.”

    He added, “When we began the film, David had already dealt with the death of his father. Eric had dealt with the death of his mother. About a month into shooting, Angie’s mother passed away so it was this idea of mortality (that permeated this film).”

    Waste no time

    The actor, who turns 45 next week, stressed, “It makes me want to not waste any time because I’m in a company I really, really love.”

    “I had a friend who worked at a hospice and he said something really interesting,” Brad volunteered. “He said people in their last moments do not discuss their successes, awards, trophies, what books they wrote, what they did, what they accomplished. They only talk about their loves and regrets. I think that’s very telling.”

  • huh

    Angelina is NOT the greatest actress at the moment. that would be KATE WINSLET. and kate deserves an oscar this time-after 5 bloody nominations!!! I hope she at least takes away ONE golden globe and i think she will-for revolutionary road.

    angelina needs to gain some weight. she looks ill. she’s not going to win any awards for changeling, even if she’s nominated. not with winslet, hathaway, streep, michelle williams as contenders this award season.

    Brood of six

    As for the matter of having a brood of six young kids, the daddy pointed out, “It’s really important that everyone gets their individual time and group time so it’s a big focus of ours. Some of the nights can get long. The babies are starting to sleep through the night now so it just works.”

    On the family’s French language lessons, he admitted, “She (Angelina) is ahead. My synapses seem to have shut down. I’m struggling. My seven-year-old rips it. He’s fantastic. It’s really humiliating but we’re really proud of him. So I’m in ecole (laughter) and it sounds about like that. Merci beaucoup.”

    “It’s a nice way of life there,” Brad declared about living part of the time in the South of France. “We were looking for a place where our kids could run free and not be hassled. They seem to care less about us there so it’s a nice relationship with us and the area.”

    But home right now is Berlin while Brad is doing “Inglorious Bastards” with Quentin Tarantino. When we told him about Quentin’s impressive knowledge about certain Filipino films made in the ’60s and ’70s, Brad commented that he was just as amazed with the director’s knowledge of world cinema. The actor appeared very excited about “Inglorious…,” which he described as “outrageous” and “It’s the World War II film to end all World War II films.”

    Gold ring band

    Brad, who wore a gold band on the ring finger of his right hand, was informed that in Germany, such ring placement meant he was married. He playfully pretended to begin moving the ring as he asked, “Is that right?” But he added, “So be it.”

    When a journalist asked Brad if he agreed with what Angelina told us in a recent interview that they’re not quite done yet having more kids, he replied with a smile, “We haven’t found any reason not to yet. It is chaos at moments but there’s such joy in the house. I look down and there’s our boy from Vietnam, our daughter from Ethiopia, our girl who was born in Namibia, our son who’s from Cambodia and they are brothers and sisters, man. They are like blood relations and it is such a sight that make us feel elated. Given that with our jobs, we have the capability to also give someone a home, provide a home… Let me tell you, it’s selfish too because the reward has been extraordinary so no, we haven’t found any reason to stop yet.”

    How do mom and dad get a minute alone? “Mom and dad are creative,” Brad said with a grin. Then he said with a laugh, “There are some dry spells. There are a few moments in the desert but mom and dad get very creative and we’re good. We have our ways.”

  • chihuahua

    I think these two are sooooooooooooooooofake. The only reason why he is helping New Orleans is to take the attention off, because he is a cheater. He is doing a good job on Katrina but he is doing because someone told him so. And for Angie I feel sorry for those kids becaue she had them. So she can keep Brad on her side. If Jen or Angie were not going to give him the kids someone else was going to do it. The only good thinh about this all drama is that he is helping to promote awareness on helping people. They get to much attention there are thousand of people that are doing the same thing. I would like to see their tax return at the end of the year to see how much they get back in doing all these charitable work. Remember nothing is for free and certainly these two are not doing it for free.

    In other words – Whiney ex-wives are NOT what I want to be spending my time thinking about or talking about. My beautiful partner, equally beautiful six kids, parents, family, friends, career and humanitarian IS where I put my time and my love.

    We know Brad. You love your job more than anything.

    What a liar he is. Just last year , He was on Charlie Rose and other talk shows telling how he feels silly about acting. Now he love HW’s company?

    Great job Mr.Pitt.

    What happened to all those fading away comments from last year?

    Now movie roles are as much important as your family? Now you want to work as much as you can because you will ( talk about their loves and regrets)?

    Hey IDIOT! Your friend meant Job won’t be important at the end , But those who you love and regret. Not JOB.

    O/T Don’t read if not interested or heart can’t take this sadness.

    Cnn just popped up. They now believe little Caylee Anthony’s scull was picked up by a hydro worker who picked up a plastic bag when the scull fell to the ground.
    How sad. they have informed the grandparents don’t know about her mother who is up for her murder but sadly the remains were found very close to the Anthonys home .
    I like everyone else was hoping Caylee would come home alive but the hope slipped awhile ago. Even so i truly hope they can put closure to this maddening case.
    Very sad.

    Somebody send this to Ted C. THIS does NOT sound like a man who’s faking enthusiasm about his sex life with his woman or “doth protest too much”. Sounds like a guy who’s thrilled to finally get to use his creative skillz in a productive way – or maybe that should be “in a REproductive way”!

    Well!! Hello to all fans from Prague! I have to say that I am really happy for Angelina and Brad! They deserve this nomination, I believe that there will be an Oscar nomination also! I see that some people can not stand to see beautiful and successful couple like Brad and Angelina – but who cares? They are the biggest stars today and the world sure loves them, few people who dislike them are only sad and bitter human that can not accept that woman can be successful as a mother, partner and on her job also! Only desperate people hate when other people are happy! Love you Angie, you are the best!!

  • CLINIQUA

    lmao..:lol: from Liz Snead, LA Times:

    Jennifer Aniston, naked? Please stop! This is so sad…

    Let’s hope and pray that this is Jennifer Aniston’s last “revealing” interview for a while.

    At least until her other film flop, “He’s just Not That Into You” comes out.

    She’s on the cover of the January issue of GQ wearing nothing but a necktie. And she talks about (“Whoa”) John Mayer and jokes about hanging with Brangelina and their kids.

    “I am not having his baby. And I have not popped the question,” Jen tells GQ.

    Kidding about her ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, she says, “The funny thing is, people don’t realize we all go away to The Hamptons on the weekends. That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox….”

    As for her feelings about her younger musician boyfriend, Mayer, she admits, “Honestly, did not know much about him before I met him. I’d heard … you know, uh ‘Your Body’ –- that song. But what I can say is that I had no idea what an extraordinary musician he is. And it’s just great to sit and be witness to that. It’s kind of like, Whoa!”

    Aniston’s currently working on a film called “Pumas,” which she calls “sort of a female Wedding Crashers” about two “aspiring cougars.”

    “It is so a comment on the sexual double standard, and what’s been ironic is how hard it’s been to get this movie made,” she says. “Studios want it, but they are afraid of Middle America. They’d want to change it; they’re saying, ‘Oh, you can’t do that, people just can’t imagine you….”

    Oh, really? We beg to differ. We think it’s perfect casting. You?

    LOLOL…by the way, check the previous stories, that LA times links below…hahaha….just where would she be without Brad & Angie, and getting dumped of course. This is just how it appears, swear. LOLOL

    More Brad and Angie (and Jen)

    Check out this gallery to see the hot guys in Jen and Angie’s lives.

    Jennifer Aniston talks about Angelina Jolie’s “uncool” remarks

    Jennifer Aniston to Angelina Jolie: Zip it Good!

    John and Jen, Brad and Angie: officially a foursome

    John Mayer dumps Jennifer already. That was fast.

    John and Jen: Back On!

    It’s the performance that gets them nominated. You have to be able to separate your feelings toward the person and evaluate her work fairly. She is very good in Changeling. If you have not seen the movie, then you should see it. You are missing out a good movie. I like to see good movies, regardless of who starts in it, and I hope the HW continue to make movies like Changeling.

    Angie with the swan like grace……..you go, girl….this is empowerment for women to admire.

    Some drugged up, plastic surgeried, tiny hearted, lying, bitter, middle aged slag sitting butt na*ed on a men’s mag cover IS NOT EMPOWERING TO WOMEN…. you dumb ass who*re!!!!
