Happy Birthday, Brad Pitt!

Happy Birthday, Brad Pitt!

Brad Pitt turns 45 today and the LA Times just did a nice piece on him.

“I doubt time and gravity will be as kind as I was to myself,” Brad says with a smile. “It just made me think about the ticking clock. Am I in mid-life? Am I halfway there?. . . . Do I have 10 years, five years? And so what are those moments going to be that I do know I have, which is now?”

His latest movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, is out in theaters on Christmas Day. I saw a screening of it earlier this week and it is fantastic. It may be Golden Globe nominated for Best Drama but there are so many built-in hilarious moments as well. The entire cast does such a superb job — Brad, Cate Blanchett, Elle Fanning. JJ approved!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WILLIAM BRADLEY PITT!

    mslewis @ 12/18/2008 at 1:56 pm

    Congratulations to Brad and Angie for receiving yet more recognization for their work. This time it’s from their peers, which makes it even more special, I think.

    I thought Brad was wonderful in Se7en but that’s the only “early Brad” movie I’ve seen besides “Thelma & Louise” and you can’t really count that as acting. I did see “Babel” on cable the other day and thought Brad was incredible!! He really should have gotten a nomination for that movie. I’m looking forward to seeing “Benjamin Button” because it looks like a great job of acting on his part. My brother insists that I watch the “Jesse James” movie. He said it’s the best movie he has ever seen. He had no idea who Brad Pitt was, he just liked westerns, so when he was telling me about this great movie he had just seen, he said “It stars that young guy, you know, that one they always talk about because he’s sexy or something.” I laughed and said “Brad Pitt”? He goes, “Yeah, that guy can really act.” I laughed so hard. It was really funny the way my brother said that. He could care less about Hollywood gossip, he just loved that movie. It was on cable early this morning and I plan to watch it during the holidays.

    As for Angelina . . . I saw “Changling” a few weeks ago on my birthday (it was a gift from my sister) and I still can’t get it out of my head. It is a truly great movie, well acted by all, even the children. Angelina was amazing and I would have been sorely disappointed if she had not received recognition for it. I don’t buy movies too often but “Changling” is on my list to buy the minute it is released.

    ==============================
    Yes, I agree !!!

    I’ll be seeing Benjamin Button during the Christmas holiday.

    Make It Right Welcomes Residents Back Home for the Holidays

    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,

    uh oh. Any more of this great news like maybe an Oscar nom for one or both may just be the straw that breaks the ex’s back.

    Expect a fake suicide attempt by the ex. It will be disguised as some other physical ailment – but deliberately not disguised very well. She has sunk so low in her desperation to steal their thunder and I do think to try to derail their success I would not put anything past her. She will naturally send out friends to blame the JPs.

    bea Says:

    Off-topic, but check this out… a bit disturbing!

    Roger Friedman of Fox News wrote about Will Smith’s charitable foundation “just-released” tax returns.

    So Will Smith has shouted through the streets that he is not a Scientologist. He’s just letting one slurp on his chode every now and again. Even though Will claims he’s not in bed with the alien crazies (you know what I mean), he donated around $122,000 to Scientology this year. Specifically, he gave up $67k to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Fund, $50k to Scientologoy’s Celebrity Centre in Hollywood and another $5k to something called ABLE which is a Scientology offshoot.

    I’m guessing that ABLE stands for Anal Bottoms Lacking Enemas. It’s the charity closest to Tommy’s heart…or his ******* in this case.

    Last year, Will and his beard donated some cash to a private school that teaches some Scientology ****.

    What does this all mean? Well, it means that Will is either a barley water drinking, couch jumping, Xenu obsessing Scientologist or……..or nothing. He’s totally in the Don’t Be Glib Club.

    Thanks for your great post. I agree with you totally. I am glad for both Brad and Angie. I’m a huge fan of both, but I have to admit that I am most excited for Brad. He has been over looked too many times. Babel, Jesse James, were great performances. I have seen them both numerous times. I have to say his film choices the last 4 years have been so on point. He has just grown so much as an actor. I think this family life is doing great things for him professionally as well as personally. It shows. I would love for him to win at least one of the awards he is nominated for. Just my wish. He and Angie have a beautiful family. Some people like to say things about Karma. I believe in Karma… That is why these wonderful things are happening for them When you do good things; good comes back to you.

    I do have to say that I want to see the twins so bad. I am sure as Angie and Brad have both said that Knox is a “little Brad”. I bet they are way cute. I hope we see pics soon.

    Happy Birthday Gorgeous Brad!
    Congratulations Brad and Angie on your noms!

    Have to say I enjoyed watching X on Letterman, He make her skirm. To me it looked like he didn’t like or respect her much. He called the dog movie a TV movie!
    He certainly tried to get her to answer some straight questions for a change. He asked her who she was spending christmas with and where and didn’t let her get out of it , he asked exact number of people and why she had less friends now she was older. He asked her why people were interested in her. He talked about once having a 40 year old dog(hmmmmm thats her age).

    She looked horrified when he pulled out the magazine especially the uncool mag and people. She was afraid of what he would do next so I think she prolonged the tie bit to get out of answering more questions.

    http://www.bayoubuzz.com/News/Louisiana/Government/Brad_Pitt_SAG_and_The_Louisiana_New_Orleans_Economy__8117.asp

    Today, Brad Pitt received the SAG leading actor nomination for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    The film, the Curious Case of Benjamin Button was filmed and produced in Louisiana and is a wonderful piece of artistry and acting. It showcased New Orleans as well as any movie has done in the past and offered a touch of Katrina to drive home the movie’s theme. Pitt’s acting was nothing short of stunning.

    The movie will be out in the theaters on Christmas Day.

    The announcement comes at a time when Louisiana is facing a steep economic shortfall. Legislators could be looking at a reduction of tax credits incentives as a way to help with the budget.

    Currently, Louisiana is third in the nation in movie-making which is no small feat given that the tax credit program is just a few years new.

    Louisiana also has other entertainment-related tax credit programs which are beginning to break ground. Obviously, those other programs would have been fast forwarded had Katrina not taken us for a spin.

    While Governor Jindal and the Louisiana Legislators consider cutting programs, it is critical that they expand rather than contract the tax credit programs. Louisiana is rich in culture and these information and creative arts tax credits will drive in the Pitts (as in Brad who now lives in New Orleans) but other big name players from various industries.

    Louisiana has been known for its economy associated with its natural resources but it is time to go beyond the physical and move into the realm of intellectual capital which will keep our young kids home rather than forcing them to move to other cities just to make a living.

    The nomination for Brad Pitt is also a nomination for Louisiana and we share his appreciation as he enjoys is birthday today. The nomination for a New Orleans and Louisiana based movie shows what this state can do and attract as we incentivize the new economy.

    n just seven days, on Dec. 25, Paramount Pictures will release the David Fincher-directed fantasy-epic, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which was shot in and around New Orleans in late 2006 and early 2007.

    Easily one of the biggest-budgeted films to shoot in the city, the film has already garnered a raft of nominations early in the 2008 awards season, and it is the most-anticipated holiday film for many New Orleans.

    With that in mind, today we kick off a seven-day countdown to the film’s release with a series of video featurettes on the film and provided by Paramount Pictures. Today’s episode focuses on the decision to shoot the film in the city.

    Check back every day for new installments; the links below will be activated when the respective videos are available.

    Looking at the videos and the older, younger pictures of Brad used in them, I can say without a doubt that IMHO Brad is so much finer today than when he was younger. He was beautiful, no doubt. He had killer abs, no doubt.

    But for me personally, right now, today, tomorrow, day after tomorrow, and on, and on, and on, and ever since he met Angie and became a dad he is the man. He is beyond beautiful. He is fulfilled. He is masculine. He knows who he is. He knows what is important. And he knows hot to treasure it.

    This is my opinion and I am sticking to it. Peace

    18 DECEMBER 2008 Hello Magazine online
    When he was a lad, the internet and computers were the stuff of a science fiction story. Yet today veteran actor Kirk Douglas has confidently transitioned into the cyber world, and at 92 is the world’s oldest celebrity blogger.

    The Hollywood icon posts regular updates on social networking site MySpace, where he has posted a profile and racked up 4,413 friends. As well as his writings there are family photos of the chisel-jawed actor and his second wife Anne, plus a snap of film star son Michael Douglas.

    “I express my opinion, and I tell (readers) that they don’t have to agree with me because it’s a free country,” says Kirk of his blog, which has covered everything from his love for his Russian immigrant mother, Bryna, to his backing for US president-elect Barack Obama.

    He notes his favourite films as Champion, Spartacus, Paths Of Glory and Lonely Are The Brave, joking: “I just happen to be in these movies!”.

    The screen legend also shares his greatest remaining ambition in life – to meet Angelina Jolie – adding the proviso: “Provided my wife lets me”.

    SAG President Says Possible Strike Won’t Affect Award Show

    The show must — and will – go on.
    .
    Despite the possibility of an actors’ strike, the Screen Actors Guild will have its annual award show in January, according to SAG President Alan Rosenberg.
    .
    “[The strike] is not going to affect our show,” Rosenberg tells PEOPLE, adding that SAG doesn’t “know whether we’ll go on strike or not” but that “people shouldn’t even worry about it.”
    .
    Rosenberg, who was present at Thursday’s SAG nominations announcement, says the Guild hasn’t started discussing the specifics of a strike.
    .
    “We’re talking about a strike authorization. It’s a very different thing,” he says. “Nothing unusual about it. Nothing radical about it. We need this tool to get the employers to come back to the table and do us some good faith, which they haven’t done since the beginning of these negotiations.”
    .
    The 15th Annual SAG Awards will be simulcast live nationally on TNT and TBS Sunday, Jan. 25.

    He did an excellent job in the Assassination of Jesse James.

    And now, another good movie Benjamin Button, I cant wait for it in the theaters.

    Happy Birthday to the man of my dreams! You have made a significant impact worldwide. This year alone, MAKE IT RIGHT NOLA has given many families many opportunities to rebuild their lives. The JOLIE-PITT Foundation has given many children the necessary means to survive. In cambodia, the Maddox foundation has given opportunities and jobs to the locals. Brad and Angie, you are both two remarkable people who have enriched many lives both domestic and abroad. I applaud you both for all the works that you do. Its quite an achievement to be able to stay on course in the midst of all the insignificant glitz of Hollyweird. Not enough of these so called stars really make a difference in the world and those who do go unnoticed because of the likes of Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, etc. dramas.

    I love what Angie said Says:

    please @ 11/15/2008 at 3:03 am

    * On her life right now: “This is such a beautiful time for me. When I look back on my life, I never really believed that I would find this kind of happiness on so many different levels. I think I trained myself to expect less, but meeting Brad and being with him has shown me that sometimes it just takes the right circumstances for you to meet a good man who enjoys being with you and working towards the same goals in life. Brad has always been there for me.”

    * On Maddox and Changeling: “What made it particularly troubling for me to put myself into this woman’s head was my own relationship with my son Maddox. I just couldn’t shake the thought of him through the whole film. Because Maddox is my eldest and also because he says things that are similar to what the boy in the film says. I also talk to Maddox the same way I talk to the little boy. So when Brad and I saw the movie we noticed strange similarities, especially when the boy says: ‘Am I too heavy?’ Mad says that all the time. And I tell him: ‘Oh, never! But one day you’re going to carry me!’”

The rabid hens hate campaigns, wishing harm on innocent children and evil words cannot keep a good woman down. Hens and paid bloggers tried to smear AJ, her movie and her integrity. However, the truth has a way of rising to the surface and the one who tries to plot another downfall ends in the dirt being pissed on.
    AJ gave an amazing performance in Changeling. BP is getting critical acclaim for the Benjamin Button movie. BP is celebrating his birthday surrounded by the love of his children and partner. It sure beats the birthdays he had with Whiny X. Hens can smear all day on a blog because that is all they have. BP and AJ have the productive and fruitful life. It is all good.

    Since you believed everything told by the Ted C , Ted C did said the 40 y.o po.rn star Maniston was a big fans of coke aside from chain smoking and margaritas and male hormone , that’s before Huvane bought or bribe his gaybe ass. the rumor of both Brad and X taking coke have been going on for so long from the tab., which causes X infertility problems. look who is still barren despite her constant ranting of baby’s on the way.

    Now, I know that you are just a troll changing your name! And I see that you only know how to lie because that is the only way how you can say something bad about Angelina! First, she was always thin, always, some people sometimes have veins that can be seen, every person has different body, go to school and learn something before you make lies! I know that for sure because, first I learned that a long time ago, and also my best friend also has the same problem for years now. But Angelina is beautiful and great person, and I really don’t care for couple of sad and bitter people that hate Angelina just because the would kill to be just like her!

    kiki, Dr Drew has never met or treated Angelina. Dr. Drew didn’t say she was on drugs. OK. Repeat this truth to yourself.

    Dr. Drew is a sorry attention seeking physician who loves himself and the attention he gets who has been sued multiple times for his behavior. If you ask me Dr. Drew is on drugs. He throws out diagnosis and names of people he has never met like leaves falling off a tree. He used Angelina and Tom Cruise’s names to get some publicity for his latest book. Anyone like you who wants so badly to follow this charlatan needs to find some mental health treatment for your delusions.

    TedC who is really Bruce Bibby from Highland Park Texas is no physician and has never said explicitly that Angelina is on drugs and he willl never do so as the E! keep an eye on the lies he cooks up for his pitiful blog. He uses her name to get hits as that is how he is keeping his job. You are so stupid as he admits that he is just lying and still you want to use him as some sort of source for the truth.

    Now these are the two totally unreliable sources you use for this lie you want to spread. You are one ignorant lowlife who is not good enough for Angelina to wipe muddy shoes on.

    Well the truth is Jen is a coke head and you can take that to the bank.

    See how easy it is to say anything one wants to on the world wide net.

    People like you are the most digusting subhumans, you know you are lying, but are so consumed with hate for another human being who has caused you no harm, that you are beyond irrational, you are insane.

She has gotten to the top without paying an over-zealous, PR agent/Talent Agency 20 percent of her salary. Meanwhile, narcisstic, self-absored Actresses cannot make a move without their stylist, PR agent, Talent Agent, Plastic surgeon, self-help therapists and hanger-ons.

    AJ gives a third of her salary to various charities and has formed the Jolie-Pitt foundation with her Partner BP. Many in Hollywood, do not like the success story of Angelina Jolie and will try to tear her down. However, she has the love of her children and birthday man, Papa Pitt.

    from OK Says:

    It should have been a day of celebration for Brad Pitt. The actor turned 45 today and just wrapped shooting on Quentin Tarantino’s film Inglourious ********.

    But at aproximately 5 p.m. on Thursday evening, L.A. city paramedics and fire were called to the actor’s home in the L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz.

    An eyewitness tells OK! that an ambulance and a fire truck pulled up to the gate of Brad’s compound and were let inside by one of his security guards. After a short 15 minute stay, paramedics left with an elderly man who was transported (and followed by Brad’s security) to a local hospital.

    Ten minutes later, police arrived.

    It is not known yet if Angelina Jolie and the kids were home at the time. Brad arrived in L.A. last night from Berlin, where he’s been shooting the film Inglourious ********.

    Didn’t X try to smear Angie like a month ago with the “uncool” comment? A month ago SAG voters were still deciding who to vote for and hadn’t handed in their votes. Isn’t it funny that with all that X tried to do to smear Angie, that Angie’s fellow actors still decided to nominate her for the SAG award?

    ###############

    Yes, I think we have a concerted effort by all the members of SAG to drive Aniston insane and screaming from Hollywood. They, as we, have had enough of her lunatic fringing.

    Is that clear enough of a message for Ms Aniston to shut the ef up.

    Legend Embraces The Web… And Angelina?

    (Photo: Splash News Online) Not only does Kirk Douglas have the distinction of being one of the last of the Hollywood legends, but he is now the oldest celebrity blogger.

    The 92-year-old father of Michael Douglas, who was a huge star in the 1950s and stopped acting 5 years ago, started blogging in March 2007 to promote his memoir, Let’s Face It.

    He kept at it when he realized how popular his posts were and has acquired 4,414 online pals.

    Among the many posts are his thoughts on the election of Barack Obama:

    “I’m very happy that our country has made such a historical move,” wrote Douglas. “The world will be astounded that the United States has elected a black man to lead them. I never imagined that such an event would be possible during my lifetime. I think our country will now go on a course that permits us to work with other countries.”

    He also wrote that his greatest ambition now is to meet Angelina Jolie, “provided my wife lets me.”

    I am not convinced that Angie will get an oscar nod. There is so much hate on awardsdaily.forum and other blogs and sites against her. After the crime they did last year, I am fearing they will do it again.

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

    Don’t worry about what the people on blogs are saying. They don’t get a vote. Besides, it’s the same people going from blog to blog creating a stink. The site mods think Angie deserves a nod and the Academy members who check these sites are more interested in the opinions of the bloggers than the people commenting on the posts. I’m willing to bet that a lot of people don’t even read the comments. I know I sure as hell don’t aways read the comments. Like today I looked at the SAG noms, checked the posts on the critics choices they’d posted…and then went back to what I was doing.

    Despite reports, TMZ has learned an ambulance did NOT pick up someone from Brad Pitt’s L.A. residence — sources say the call was made from a neighbor’s house.
    .
    We repeat: Everyone at the Brangelina compound is OK — Brad’s rep confirmed.
    .
    We’re told paramedics actually picked up an unconscious, 100-year-old male late this afternoon. Brad only turned 45 today.

    BBBWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I was wondering when someone was going to mention Ted’s real name. One day I was on his blog and he was going on and on about how mean Texans were to him as a gay child and how hard it was for him growing up – a real sob story. A few days later he had a bitter post about Angie and I someone had had enough of his crap and posted that Ted was full of shite, gave his real name, where he was from, said Ted was from a very well-to-do family, Ted never had to struggle for anything a day in his life, he wasn’t openly gay as teen, nobody picked on him and that BTW…he was so-and-so and had grown up with and gone to school with Ted all the way through high school and Ted was, is and always will be a big fat liar.

    I went back to the site later that day…and the post had been deleted! ROTLFMAO! Somebody busted Ted’s ass good and Ted got rid of the evidence. At first I wasn’t sure the person really knew him…but why else would Ted delete the post if the person wasn’t telling the truth?

    I’m imagining the twins in high chairs with party hats on, four kids rushing to get the gifts they made and wanna be first…….fighting over who gets to blow out the candles; sure they had to light the cake four times……..big dinner………whole famdamily there at the table……..man, for a guy who lived such a solitary life but a few years ago…….remember his fortieth folks, he has undergone such an enormous paradigm shift in his life. He’s finally found home and purpose and real, deep, binding, enduring love. That’s gotta be the best present ever.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    A film review by Sean O’Connell – Copyright © 2008 Filmcritic.com

    Cate’s great, and Henson is better as Benjamin’s tender, genteel Southern mother. But it’s Pitt who gives Fincher’s epic its heart and soul. Acting beneath a series of digital effects or layers of makeup, Pitt still imbues Benjamin with a youthful exuberance, a wide-eyed innocence, and a passion for worldly experience.

    On another note, I think Brad Pitt looks very distinguished and handsome in the pic above. I don’t get why people criticize that he looks old. He looks like a man who can be 45, and in today’s Hollywood where everyone is trying to look young and plastic, it’s great to see an actor who has embraced the aging process with poise and maturity.

    Hope you and your family are having great holidays! In honor of the Pitts, I made 58 of my Christmas gifts this year! I’m exhausted, but I bet the Jolie-Pitts are too. Kinda gets you in the real spirit of Christmas.

    Get ready to see a lot more of X since she has a lot of movies to promote.. He is just not that into you.. in February, Traveling.. in April, and Management.. in September (according to her in the interview this morning on Regis and Kelly). She will be all over the place.

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

    Uh…first she’s got to find a distributor for Traveling before she can promote it. The distributor for Management is a two-bit op that’s known for putting films out in very limited release – think Chestica Simpson and the 8 theater run her last flick got – and then shuffling the movie off to DVD. Total theaterical run for that dog could be 1 weekend.

    That’s another reason why X is pimping this movie – because if this thing tanks then Management might go straight to DVD. Ditto Traveling. X and Aaron Eckhart? Puh-leeze. The two of them couldn’t open a wet pack of smokes. I like Aaron Eckhart but GMAFB…he’s nobody. It’s his movie…X is once again playing second fiddle. How empowering is that? Second fiddle in every movie you make? Doesn’t sound like such a great ego booster to me…

    Happy belated birtday to William Bradley Pitt! it´s hard to believe that he´s already 45! He doesn´t look like mit at all. When one watches the photos taken at the premiere of TCCOBB it´s easy to see that he has inherited his good looks from his dad Bill who doesn´t look like he´s 67 years old. Brad will always look younger than his years thanks to his genes. Both his parents look younger than their real age (Jane is 68 and Bill 67). Hope Brad had a wonderful birthday party with Angie and the kids. BTW. According to tmz.com the ambulance was called to one of their neighbors house – not to the Jolie-Pitt house. So everything is OK with the JPs. May they have a merry Christmas wherever they are spending it. According to the latest rumor they´re heading to France. Time will tell if it´s true. They probably are heading to one of their adopted children´s home countries anyway. Maybe to Ethiopia.

    Sorry I missed the party last night, I was trying to get in some Christmas shopping. Looks like you guys had a great time. Now I need to go back and read all the posts. The pics and videos lI have seen so far look great.

    Got my copy of RS last night. Brad looks better on the real cover of the mag then in the pics of the cover on the net. Those blue eyes are so lucious!!!!

    Just a thought. The papz really keep up with Brad but not his costars as much. Noticed how they try to monitored every move that Brad and Angie make. But nothing on Cate (CCOBB) or Sean Penn (Tree of Life). Same with Angie when Wanted was being filmed. They followed every move Brad and Angie made but not the costars. That goes to show where the money is for pictures. Good for us we got to see them and bad for them.

    Question? For die hard Brad fans. Did the media talk about Brad this much before Angie? I only noticed him every now and then. Or has the media gotten too obessed with celebs these days. I don’t recall as much tv coverage of celebs in the past. Even all the major tv stations and papers have something about celebs.

    Also, all that talk about Maddox and his interest in weapons. Well I just got a list from my soon to be 8 year old grandson for Christmas gifts. Guess what is on the list, “toy military guns”. The rest of the list are Star Wars action figures and Army guy action figures. He’s a good kid and not pyscho. Think boys just like weapons.

    Peace off to work. This is the last day of school. Will be off for two weeks for Christmas break.

They’re not from major critics, but the reviews were much kinder than I thought they’d be. It’s got to mean something to her that people didn’t single her out – again – as being the worst thing in the movie…

    RESPONSE TO A HATER – 101

    See, I think that’s fine and you’re completely justified to not like a celebrity because they’re narcissistic, self-absorbed, and base their careers off of tabloids. However, you could say that about 95% of the top women in Hollywood. The fact that you single out Aniston and claim it has nothing to do with Brad/Angelina is perplexing, especially since Brad cheated on her. This is what I find very strange about Brangleina fans in general…Aniston was the victim and yet is still hated for no good, appartent, or logical reason.

    “Thats because they dont do **** for society, they dont contribute crap to society or give women a reason to become something bigger in their life. I hate that women idolize these dumb ******* who dont contain any sort of intelligence.”— well, that could kind of be said about someone who spends hours and racks up thousands of posts on a message board, no? Some of you need to practice what you preach… its almost a little hypocritical if you think about it.
    ______________________
    .
    .
    I think what you have to remember is that being fans, we may be more knowledgeable than you about the entire situation and may have read more first-person stuff about it.
    .
    There are many of us, who feel that Aniston and her PR have very shrewdley figured out a way for publicity’s sake, to garner sympathy and to try her divorce in the court of public opinion, in a bid to make people rally around her and against Jolie Pitt. She has taken advantage of the publicity surrounding her divorce, and used it to demonize Pitt & Jolie, while making herself blameless.
    .
    It all started with her Vanity Fair interview, and the impression that she tried to give was that she was left behind. Thus making Brad a cad, maybe not a cheating cad – but a cad nonetheless.
    .
    The very fact that you can say things like, ‘Brad cheated on her,’ and ‘Aniston was the victim,’ when Aniston herself has said the opposite, makes it plain that you don’t know what you’re talking about and it shows your bias.
    .
    Comments like yours are one reason why fans of Jolie and Pitt get so incensed at Aniston’s modus operandi. It’s true, we don’t know these people, we only know what they say. Given that, I’d remind you that so far, what Aniston has said is this:
    .
    1) she believes that Pitt didn’t cheat.
    .
    2) She believes they both tried as best they could during their marriage, and…
    .
    3) …lastly, after a long period of time passed where she appeared to be holding a grudge against Pitt, like her dear old Mom, she most recently has said that she finds Pitt ‘amazing,’ ‘admirable,’ and that she’s ‘proud of him,’ while oddly enough reserving mild snark for Angelina.
    .
    So I ask you, based on all the things that we know that they have said…
    .
    WHY are you STILL of that opinion? Do you happen to find men who cheated on you, or were lured away like stepford dummies, “admirable and amazing?” Most women with GENUINE beef do NOT.

    .
    I personally think sAniston has no beef of course, except for that fact that Jen Aniston didn’t get everything she thinks she deserves in life.
    .
    She just didn’t like how it appeared – Brad moving on so swiftly. That’s it and that’s all.
    .
    If you are still inclined to side with her for reasons unknown, then maybe you need to examine exactly what Aniston has said (since you only believe HER part of the equation), namely that the ‘fairy tale,’ and ‘golden marriage,’ was a lie. That they had their problems “rough and nasty patches,” that they spent 6 mos apart in 2003-4, and then 3 mos. in 2004 (all PRE Angelina and Mr & Mrs Smith). You also need to read their collective interviews where Brad says they may not go the distance, or her interviews where she doesn’t want to say he’s the ‘love of her life.’ He says they have no common goals, and thet he doesn’t know what she wants out of life. He says he’s always wanted 7 kids, she says, ‘no way.’ All speak to a marriage not doing too well – and so, based on what we have since learned, the marriage was over, Angelina or no Angelina.
    .
    Yet still, some women amazingly pine for this union that was not the greatest match-up to begin with. Why? If Brad had left 5 kids and a marriage of 10 years strong, the reaction wouldn’t have been this bad.
    .
    Some women need to look in the mirror and ask themselves why they are so quick to judge the fictional ‘other woman,’ when it turns out she was just NEXT.
    .
    That’s the biggest travesty of all for many fans of this amazing, inspiring couple and family, that they are being maligned by ignorant fans who side with whatever Aniston has to say, and are more than willing to fill in the blanks of what she doesn’t say – which she knows full well.
    .
    It’s manipulative, deceptive, and dishonest – but it all comes out in the wash – and a lot of people, have her number. In the industry, if not in the gen pop, which is also full of losers who get jealous when their exes move on. These are the types who will blame an innocent person and burn her at the stake, even one such as Angelina Jolie, who has so much to give to others, and is truly an inspiring amazing woman.
    .
    It’s sad, but at the same time – yeah we get angry, and we’re only too happy to defend the person we think an injustice is being done.
    .
    Aniston knows how her words are taken, it’s PR 101 — and even though she says her split was ’100 years ago,’ perversely and strangely, she has no problem talking about comics that have her ‘shooting Jolie’ (nice imagery in an age when stars are taking out restraining orders against crackpots), and bringing up Angelina’s quotes from magazine interviews she did TWO YEARS AGO and snarking about them??
    .
    I’m just amazed that so many angry bitter women who hate on Jolie, because she’s Jolie, are so gullible and can be played so easily. Unless of course they are not being ‘played,’ at all and are as unscrupulous as Aniston seems to be in her press games and publicity tour. You like seeing the pretty girl beaten up too.
    .
    At the end of the day, Aniston is a Rorschack(sp) test for angry, bitter rejects everywhere. The alternative, admitting that Brad upgraded, and has an amazing life and is accomplishing great things with the BETTER woman, hits these types of women where they live.
    .
    So in the end, that’s what it comes down to…what kind of woman are YOU?

    I agree that he was joking, but it’s also exactly why Affleck made that comment – because he knew it would be picked up by every media outlet on the planet, thus giving his own foray into Congo more press coverage. Coverage that his name alone can’t garner. He manipulated the press just like the press keeps accusing Angie of doing. All celebs do it – and now more and more of them are throwing Angie under the bus to get media attention for themselves. If she really is serious about lowering her public profile…then celebs like Affleck and X are going to have to find another way to get themselves attention.

    Jennifer Aniston’s Awkward “Early Show” Interview

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/12/19/jennifer-anistons-awkward_n_152374.html

    Jennifer Aniston may have gotten more than she bargained for when she sat down with a fawning Harry Smith for an interview on “The Early Show” on Friday. Smith’s schoolboy-like crush on Aniston even got mocked by coanchor Maggie Rodriguez.

    Smith didn’t talk at all about Aniston’s movie “Marley & Me,” other than playing a clip to introduce the segment, instead spending four minutes talking to Aniston about her appearance, her workout regimen and her life.

    Holding up her naked-but-for-a-tie GQ cover, Smith said, “You take a pretty good picture. How old are you now?”

    He then gifted her unprompted with an even-smaller bowtie for the next time.

    In the minutes that followed Harry’s questions and comments included but were not limited to:

    - How do you stay in shape?
    - How many hours of yoga a day?
    - You wear it well (told she was 39)
    - It’s like this is your, Jennifer Aniston time
    - You look great, I just, it, mm. It bears mentioning
    - I’m blushing

    At the end of the segment after it was tossed back to her, Rodriguez imitated Smith and exclaimed, “WOW Harry! Now he’s trying to get her to stick around and try some yoga positions.”
    ________________

    It was the most ridiculous interview, with her banal and dull answers that I’ve seen in a long time. She is more worthless than even I ever thought she was. Wait til you see her reaction to ‘how old are you?’ Aahahaha priceless.

    a fan Says:

    I know most of us have made our comments about the X and her negative comments disguised as “humor”. But just wanted to add one last comment. Her “uncool” statement was so uncool. In Angie’s 2007 Vogue interview the reporter asked Angie if she wanted to talk to Jen and Angie said she would welcome it, if Jen wanted. Angie was holding out an olive branch. Even Matt Lauer on the Today Show said so when they did a segment on Angie’s Vogue interview in 2007. So here it is 2 years later and Vogue asks the X about Angie’s 2007 interview. A gracious person would have said something equally as gracious as Angie’s comment. But all the X could do was play the victim after 4 years. The world does not revolve around the X and her 4 year old divorce. Life is what you make of it. Four years after a divorce with no children involved, you cannot extend an olive branch to someone who extended it to you, then you have not filled your life with good things because you still see yourself as the victim and you want the world to always attach you to Brad and Angie. But they have moved on, the world has moved on, but the X has not. That is the uncool part of all of this.

They then heard a lot of growls, moans and whimpers so my guess is, at some point Ange got the upper hand away from Papa. Angie apologized in the best way she knew how, and they went on to the after party where a great time was had by all. :lol:

Obviously, looks are NOT important to Brad Pitt – which is why he sometimes looks so stunned when he’s gazing into Angie’s stunningly beautiful face….frankly, after so many years looking at Maniston aka David Spade in tanks and cut offs, he becomes discombobulated at having such a beauty as Angelina Jolie in his life.

    Review – Changeling
    Posted by Jack Abell on Dec 19, 08 09:11 AM in Jack at the movies

    CHANGELING (15)
    Director: Clint Eastwood
    Starring: Angelina Jolie, John Malkovich, Jeffrey Donovan
    Run time: 141 minutes

    IN LIFE, all great artists seem to fade as they get older.
    Musicians, actors and authors all seem to struggle to recall the power and impact of their early work, leading to fans being disappointed and critics being left unmoved.
    In the film industry, for example, Robert De Niro was hailed as the most talented actor in the business in the 1970s and 80s, but the fact remains that he has not given anything approaching a decent performance since 1995′s Heat, and has had instead rested on his laurels, refusing to push himself as he once did.
    The great songwriters of the 20th century have also apparently burned themselves out. For all we see of Paul McCartney in the newspapers these days, you have to go back almost 30 years to find a classic song by him, and the song writing form he showed in his 1960s heyday seems to have all but evaporated.
    With this in mind, it is shocking to look at the recent directorial output of a certain Mr Clint Eastwood, aged 78.

    This decade has seen him produce at least two masterworks (Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby), and with this month’s Changeling, starring Angelina Jolie, he has added a third to the list.
    changeling.jpg.bmp
    Perhaps Clint is making up for the fact that he got into the directing game late and did not helm his first film until he was in his 40s, but even so, to be in this kind of form and approaching 80 is a phenomenal achievement.
    Telling the true story of Christine Collins, whose battle to find her child in 1920 Los Angeles saw her take on the city’s corrupt police force, the film is clearly in the running for the 2009 Oscars.
    Jolie is fantastic in the role, which is by far and way her best performance to date, and sterling support comes from John Malkovich as the clergyman who helps her in her fight.
    The film also makes an interesting companion piece to Eastwood’s Oscar winning Million Dollar Baby, with its themes of a woman trying to beat a male dominated system, and in time it will surely come to be viewed with the same classic status as that film.
    Although it is still early in the battle for next year’s Oscars, Angelina Jolie must be in the running for this performance, and you would not bet against Eastwood picking up yet another gong for his directing.
    To talk with excitement about the next film from a director who will probably be 80 by the time his next work comes out seems odd, but with Eastwood in this kind of form, there is not a film fan around who would not be.

    Verdict: 5 out of 5

    Restoring some reality to Oscar handicapping
    Things you may hear: ‘Button’ is ‘too cold’ or ‘Frost/Nixon’ is too talky
    Entire article at link

    “Benjamin Button” is too cold. The line is that the movie feels “distant” and won’t capture voters. Forget the fact that anecdotal evidence — at two separate screenings, the crying and nose-blowing was audible — suggests it’s not true. Even if the picture features an aloof character, since when is that an Oscar deal breaker? “The Queen” featured a main character as emotionally removed as they come and was still nominated for six Oscars, including best picture.

    It really is hilarious (in a disturbing sort of way) the depths of obsession the ‘haters’ have plummeted to after witnessing such success in both the personal and professional lives of Brad & Angie. Any hopes of the demise of these two mega stars is so far from reality that they have to comfort themselves with an alternate reality created in their own little depraved minds.

    Oscar Watch Says:

    From Atlanta Movies Examiner:

    With the Golden Globe nominations announced and the major critics associations having weighed in—and with the guilds (directing, acting, etc.) poised to weigh in with their nominees over the next few weeks—here’s a look at how the Oscar race is shaping up in the three lead categories (Actor, Actress, Picture):

    BEST ACTOR

    Locking In:
    1) Sean Penn, Milk. Wins from the Los Angels Film Critics Association and the New York Film Critics Association, plus a Golden Globe nominee. Done and done.
    2) Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler. A Golden Globe nominee, a runner-up with LAFC and NYFC, and a hell of a comeback story. He’s in.

    Maybe:
    1) Brad Pitt, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. He’s the lead in a Best Pic frontrunner, he’s got a Golden Globe, and his Academy snub for the much-nominated Babel a few years back is still a puzzler. Looking good.
    2) Clint Eastwood, Gran Torino. A Best Actor win from the National Board of Review was huge, and a runner-up acknowledgment from NYFCA was nice, but the GG snub hurt. Still hard to believe the Academy will shut out the 78-year-old legend.
    3) Leonardo DiCaprio, Revolutionary Road. Golden Globe nominated and well-respected, with three Oscar nods already to his name.
    4) Frank Langella, Frost/Nixon. The acclaimed lead in a Best Pic frontrunner, but without the star power of Pitt. Still a major player.

    Needs Help:
    1) Richard Jenkins, The Visitor. There’s much love for this Independent Spirit Award Best Actor nominee. But he needs a SAG nomination to get him back in the game.

    BEST ACTRESS

    Locking In:
    1) Anne Hathaway, Rachel Getting Married. NBR winner, NYFC runner-up and Golden Globe … this is her moment.
    2) Meryl Streep, Doubt. A legend and rolling with two Golden Globe nominations. Unstoppable.
    3) Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road. A NYFC runner-up, Golden Globe nominee, and even more respected than DiCaprio, with five Oscar nods to her name thus far.

    Maybe:
    1) Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky. Wins from NYFC and LAFC, plus a GG nomination, put her right on the cusp despite the film’s tiny box office.
    2) Kristin Scott Thomas, I’ve Loved You So Long. Golden Globe nominated and well-respected. But is the film too small?
    3) Angelina Jolie, Changeling. Golden Globe nominated, and some felt she was snubbed for last year’s A Mighty Heart. But her performance split audiences.

    Needs Help:
    1) Cate Blanchett, The Mysterious Case of Benjamin Button. Some confusion over whether she would be in the Supporting or Lead category, and a troubling lack of awards recognition so far. Still, the Academy loves her and the pic is an Oscar frontrunner.
    2) Melissa Leo, Frozen River. The indie darling needed a major critics’ win to bump her up, but runner-up recognition from LAFC and NYFC keeps her in the game.

    BEST PICTURE

    Locking In:
    1) Slumdog Millionaire. NBR’s Best Pic, a runner-up from NYFC and a Golden Globe nominee. Leading the pack.
    2) The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The epic with a GG nominee and Top 10 recognition from NBR and the American Film Institute—plus a lot of awards respect for director Fincher. A definite.
    3) Frost/Nixon. Tallied the same nods as Benjamin Button above, and the Academy has plenty of love for director Ron Howard. Looking strong.

    Maybe:
    1) Milk. With a win from NYFC and Top 10 kudos courtesy of NBR and AFI, it looked like a definite …until the Golden Globes snubbed it. Probably a fluke, but we’ll see.
    2) The Dark Knight. Runner-up nod at LAFC gives it come critical cache, plus Top 10 status with NBR and AFI. Still has to overcome “genre film” stigma and lack of GG nomination.
    3) Doubt: Needs more momentum for the movie as a whole … but the acting power could carry it to a Best Pic nod.
    4) Wall-E. Animated pic came out of nowhere to score Best Pic from the LAFC. Plenty of people like it, but do enough love it to make it a Best Pic nominee?
    5) Rachel Getting Married. Carrying the indie flag—and carrying it well with a NYFC runner-up and NBR recognition—but probably still not mainstream enough.
    6) Revolutionary Road. Golden Globe nominated and packed with star power, but is there enough critical passion?

    Needs Help:
    1) The Wrestler. Top 10 NBR and AFI, shut out of Globes … probably will have to “settle” for performance noms.
    2) Gran Torino. See The Wrestler … but don’t count out Eastwood.
    3) The Reader. GG nom, not much else … but Winslet and Fiennes are a potent combo.
    4) Happy Go Lucky. Runner up at NYFC and a GG Comedy nominee. Could move up in a hurry with some SAG love.

    Behind the scenes of ‘Benjamin Button’: Day 2 – Making music

    Posted by Mike Scott, Movie writer, The Times-Picayune December

    Today — in the second in an eight-part series of video vignettes leading up to the Dec. 25 opening of the locally shot fantasy-epic “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which was shot in and around New Orleans in late 2006 and early 2007 — composer Alexandre Desplat discusses the film’s score.

    Easily one of the biggest-budgeted films to shoot in the city, the film has already garnered a raft of nominations early in the 2008 awards season, and for many New Orleanians it is the most-anticipated film of the holiday season.

    Check back daily for new installments; the links below will be activated when the respective videos (all provided courtesy of Paramount Pictures) are available.

I mean, sheeeIT….it just goes to show you how MUCH star power Jolie has, when Affleck’s little throwaway line gets THIS much press! My God. LOL Now you see why that lame boring FRAUD Jen Maniston is so succesful getting press…any loser out there can say the magic words, ‘Angelina Jolie,’ and walah -it’ll be good for at LEAST 2-3 days of breathless press, blog, and talk show coverage. I’ve never seen anything like it! LOL

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

    I agree that he was joking, but it’s also exactly why Affleck made that comment – because he knew it would be picked up by every media outlet on the planet, thus giving his own foray into Congo more press coverage. Coverage that his name alone can’t garner. He manipulated the press just like the press keeps accusing Angie of doing. All celebs do it – and now more and more of them are throwing Angie under the bus to get media attention for themselves. If she really is serious about lowering her public profile…then celebs like Affleck and X are going to have to find another way to get themselves attention.

    The AM Take

    Pub. 2008-12-19

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, based on a short story by acclaimed novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, follows the central character as he’s born 80 years old and spends the rest of his life aging backward, with the film transpiring against the backdrop of some of the 20th century’s most famous events (including both World Wars). It’s an almost unfilmable premise that’s been stuck in development hell for decades, yet there’s little doubt that if anybody could bring this story to the silver screen, it would be the endlessly creative filmmaker behind such contemporary masterpieces as 1995’s Se7en and 1999’s Fight Club, David Fincher.

    Critical Appeal
    A measure of this movie’s critical reception
    AskMen.com score: 85

    Based solely on the film’s first trailer, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is precisely the sort of large-scale, sweeping epic that does particularly well around Oscar time and it’s consequently not surprising to note that the movie is being released right at the height of this year’s awards season.

    Guy Appeal
    A measure of this movie’s appeal to men
    AskMen.com score: 87

    Aside from the presence of such lovely ladies as Cate Blanchett, Julia Ormond and Taraji P. Henson within its cast, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button boasts a premise that most viewers can’t help but find irresistible. As anyone who’s ever muttered “youth is wasted on the young” can attest, there’s something downright compelling about the idea of starting out one’s life as an old person and subsequently working one’s way down to adolescence. The late, great George Carlin had an entire bit about a similar concept, which ended with: “You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating, and you finish off as an ******.” What could be better?

    Hamm, Pitt also garner SAG nods

    By Pete Bland

    December 18, 2008 at 3:08 p.m.

    You can add Screen Actors Guild nominations to the Golden Globe nods University of Missouri grad Jon Hamm and former MU student Brad Pitt received last week.

    Hamm is up for an award as best actor in a TV drama series for his role as Don Draper in “Mad Men,” while Pitt earned a bid as best film actor for the lead role in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”

    Also of note, a different one of Hamm’s leading ladies picked up a nod this time around, as Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) is up for best actress in a TV drama series. January Jones (Betty Draper) was nominated for a Golden Globe in the same category.

    The SAGs will be simulcast live beginning at 7 p.m. Jan. 25 on TNT and TBS.

    Changeling opening in Spain

    In Spain, a slew of new releases aim to boost the pre-Christmas B.O. after it took a beating from a Barcelona vs. Real Madrid soccer match last weekend.

    An optimistic atmosphere is in the air, despite the absence of an obvious holiday tentpole.

    Maybe reviewers are trying to get in Santa’s good books too by being surprisingly generous for a change.

    “The Tale of Despereaux,” which opens on 344 via UPI, was praised by monthly Fotogramas as “an excellent tale.”

    “The movie will perform much better than many people think,” forecasts one booker.

    “Changeling,” being released by UPI on 332, also went down well with the crix.

    “Changeling” and “Desperaux” will contend for top spot, according to bookers.

    “Eastwood hasn’t put a foot wrong in years,” opined La Vanguardia.

    “Eastwood’s formidable talent makes this very long movie seem very short,” raved El Pais.

    Very well said. What infuriates me, is when these people try to re-write history by saying that her recent snide comments were the first she has made about her divorce, conveniently forgetting the 2005 VF interview, and numerous subsequent interviews, when she made snarky and suggestive comments about Brad and Angie.

    I know she will get her comeuppance eventually… anyone this vindictive and manipulative has to. I just hope she and her fans are strong enough to handle whatever comes her way down the road.

    Reelworld

    Published December 26, 2008.
    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    Genre: Drama/Fantasy/Mystery/Romance
    Starring: Brad Pitt, Taraji P. Henson, Cate Blanchett

    Grade: A
    Reviewer: Kent Tentschert
    THE PLOT:
    Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) is born a wizened old man, suffering from arthritis and rheumatism. Abandoned by his father, Benjamin is raised by Queenie (Taraji P. Henson) who runs a New Orleans retirement home.
    As those around Benjamin age, he slowly gets younger – experiencing life backwards.
    When Daisy (Cate Blanchett) begins visiting her grandmother as a young girl, she and Benjamin become friends and, as they age toward one another, fall in love.
    But as Benjamin grows younger and Daisy ages, they realize that although their love is ageless, their relationship cannot continue. What many thought was a unique gift given to Benjamin becomes a burden — a lesson to us all about life, love and a little boy named Benjamin Button.

    KENT’s Take:
    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is one of those films I liken to a good brandy. It goes down smooth and just gets better and better.
    As Benjamin gets to know his extended family in the retirement home, we get to know them, and him as well, and we quickly become invested in the story.
    Masterfully written by Eric Roth and directed by David Fincher, it becomes a simple task to feel Benjamin’s wool suits, smell Queenie’s home cooking and feel Daisy’s love for Benjamin.
    Add the beautiful cinematography and gorgeous lighting to make this a stunningly beautiful film.
    Brad Pitt is underrated as an actor, but this film shows again that he is willing to play a character other than a “pretty boy,” and character unlike any he has played before. His Benjamin Button character stretches Pitt’s acting skills. With Benjamin’s smoky southern drawl we find ourselves charmed by his innocence as he wheels, limps, shuffles, walks, runs and crawls his way into our hearts.
    Gather up your Daisy or Benjamin for an evening of adventure, romance, laughs and tears. The movie poster states that life is best lived backwards. “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button” is worth seeing any way you can.

    To OHOH,

    Why all the lies about AJ and BP, according to you Rachellettes, Tranny Maniston has moved on , is happy, enjoying the best sex of her life. So if you believe the ho is happy, then why are you spending all your time on this thread??? shouldnt you be on ChinJens thread posting your mantra of “you look Great, OMG you’re so beautiful, You look so happy, no other 40 year old woman in the history of 40 year old women look as good as you” and of course “you go girl” to her photoshopped bu tt nek kid magazine covers and her wearing too short dresses with her sna tch hanging out. (thats one classy idol ya got there)

    You Chin fans should be shooting rainbows and butterflies out your a$$es with all the media wh oring she been doing for her dog movie. I dont understand why the hate? Did’nt she say her marriage to BP was a 100 years ago? So why don’t you go back to her thread and cheer on the botoxed, juvidermed, restalained within an inch of her life, boyfriend buying, media wh oring, desperate, bitter b!tch .

    There is a new thread, she wants you sychophants to believe, which you do, that she sooo in love and has been freshly pissed on. She has pictures to prove it!!! she’s happy!!! She starting over, go go cheer her on.

    I think what you have to remember is that being fans, we may be more knowledgeable than you about the entire situation and may have read more first-person stuff about it.
    .
    There are many of us, who feel that Aniston and her PR have very shrewdley figured out a way for publicity’s sake, to garner sympathy and to try her divorce in the court of public opinion, in a bid to make people rally around her and against Jolie Pitt. She has taken advantage of the publicity surrounding her divorce, and used it to demonize Pitt & Jolie, while making herself blameless.
    .
    It all started with her Vanity Fair interview, and the impression that she tried to give was that she was left behind. Thus making Brad a cad, maybe not a cheating cad – but a cad nonetheless.
    .
    The very fact that you can say things like, ‘Brad cheated on her,’ and ‘Aniston was the victim,’ when Aniston herself has said the opposite, makes it plain that you don’t know what you’re talking about and it shows your bias.
    .
    Comments like yours are one reason why fans of Jolie and Pitt get so incensed at Aniston’s modus operandi. It’s true, we don’t know these people, we only know what they say. Given that, I’d remind you that so far, what Aniston has said is this:
    .
    1) she believes that Pitt didn’t cheat.
    .
    2) She believes they both tried as best they could during their marriage, and…
    .
    3) …lastly, after a long period of time passed where she appeared to be holding a grudge against Pitt, like her dear old Mom, she most recently has said that she finds Pitt ‘amazing,’ ‘admirable,’ and that she’s ‘proud of him,’ while oddly enough reserving mild snark for Angelina.
    .
    So I ask you, based on all the things that we know that they have said…
    .
    WHY are you STILL of that opinion? Do you happen to find men who cheated on you, or were lured away like stepford dummies, “admirable and amazing?” Most women with GENUINE beef do NOT.
    .
    I personally think sAniston has no beef of course, except for that fact that Jen Aniston didn’t get everything she thinks she deserves in life.
    .
    She just didn’t like how it appeared – Brad moving on so swiftly. That’s it and that’s all.
    .
    If you are still inclined to side with her for reasons unknown, then maybe you need to examine exactly what Aniston has said (since you only believe HER part of the equation), namely that the ‘fairy tale,’ and ‘golden marriage,’ was a lie. That they had their problems “rough and nasty patches,” that they spent 6 mos apart in 2003-4, and then 3 mos. in 2004 (all PRE Angelina and Mr & Mrs Smith). You also need to read their collective interviews where Brad says they may not go the distance, or her interviews where she doesn’t want to say he’s the ‘love of her life.’ He says they have no common goals, and thet he doesn’t know what she wants out of life. He says he’s always wanted 7 kids, she says, ‘no way.’ All speak to a marriage not doing too well – and so, based on what we have since learned, the marriage was over, Angelina or no Angelina.
    .
    Yet still, some women amazingly pine for this union that was not the greatest match-up to begin with. Why? If Brad had left 5 kids and a marriage of 10 years strong, the reaction wouldn’t have been this bad.
    .
    Some women need to look in the mirror and ask themselves why they are so quick to judge the fictional ‘other woman,’ when it turns out she was just NEXT.
    .
    That’s the biggest travesty of all for many fans of this amazing, inspiring couple and family, that they are being maligned by ignorant fans who side with whatever Aniston has to say, and are more than willing to fill in the blanks of what she doesn’t say – which she knows full well.
    .
    It’s manipulative, deceptive, and dishonest – but it all comes out in the wash – and a lot of people, have her number. In the industry, if not in the gen pop, which is also full of losers who get jealous when their exes move on. These are the types who will blame an innocent person and burn her at the stake, even one such as Angelina Jolie, who has so much to give to others, and is truly an inspiring amazing woman.
    .
    It’s sad, but at the same time – yeah we get angry, and we’re only too happy to defend the person we think an injustice is being done.
    .
    Aniston knows how her words are taken, it’s PR 101 — and even though she says her split was ‘100 years ago,’ perversely and strangely, she has no problem talking about comics that have her ’shooting Jolie’ (nice imagery in an age when stars are taking out restraining orders against crackpots), and bringing up Angelina’s quotes from magazine interviews she did TWO YEARS AGO and snarking about them??
    .
    I’m just amazed that so many angry bitter women who hate on Jolie, because she’s Jolie, are so gullible and can be played so easily. Unless of course they are not being ‘played,’ at all and are as unscrupulous as Aniston seems to be in her press games and publicity tour. You like seeing the pretty girl beaten up too.
    .
    At the end of the day, Aniston is a Rorschack(sp) test for angry, bitter rejects everywhere. The alternative, admitting that Brad upgraded, and has an amazing life and is accomplishing great things with the BETTER woman, hits these types of women where they live.
    .
    So in the end, that’s what it comes down to…what kind of woman are YOU?

    Top Ten F/X Scenes of 2008
    The best visual effects scenes are not always found in the best movies. Sometimes, they’re in the very worst. But if you can look past the unconvincing cavemen, the undead muttering of Keanu Reeves’s Klatuu, or the candy-colored epilepsy trigger that is Speed Racer, you might be able to appreciate the often-overlooked brilliance of today’s best visual-effects crews. Here are our favorite F/X scenes of 2008, ranked from good to best. In a year of cinematic lemons, any lemonade is worth saluting.

    6. Commuter Rail Duel

    By the time office drone-turned-assassin Wesley (James McAvoy) gets into a firefight with his father on a train, this superhero movie by way of Fight Club seems to have run out of CGI tricks. Bullets have already turned corners, assassinations have been carried out from the top of a subway car and the driver’s seat of an airborne car, and Angelina Jolie has already proven herself adept at steering with her feet. But the action gets weirder as the two superhumans shoot each other’s rounds out of the air, and the train is derailed over a canyon. The fight within a disintegrating arena is old hat for action movies, and so is the liberal use of slow motion, but the combination of all of these elements, spiked with the bullet-on-bullet violence and the realistic heft of the falling train cars, is exactly why Hollywood keeps coming back to big-budget F/X.

    The Manchild in the Mirror

    8. Benjamin Button redefines the term “awkward age,” with a scene in which a recently born Button (Brad Pitt) stares at his ancient face and wasted, child-like (but still old) body in the mirror. The easy option would have been full CGI, although the resulting ghoul could have been as unreal as the less-than-horrifying plague zombies of I Am Legend. Instead, Pitt’s world-famous mug was slathered with motion capture paint, creating a 3D model of his face that could be digitally inserted onto other actors’s bodies. In this moment of self-reflection, the real triumph is in dodging a bullet, and using F/X to create an image that’s as impossible as it is poignant.

    I see a lot of people keep commenting on how Brad looks in that photo. It was a very long night maybe I don’t know. But this man is plain tired and needs the long awaited break he’s gonna get next month when Angie goes to work. He has been busy doing alot more than the ones complaining. I think he looked nice at the CCOBB premeire. He had the eye thing going on in 2004 when he was with Aniston but he got more rest then than was not got.

    *Los Angeles, CA — The African-American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) has named “The Dark Knight” as the Best Picture of 2008.

    Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan, the Warner Bros. Pictures release captured a majority vote by the organization, which is comprised of African-American media professionals from across the nation.

    Frank Langella was selected as Best Actor 2008 for “Frost/Nixon.” Angelina Jolie earned AAFCA recognition as Best Actress 2008 for “The Changeling.”

    “Although our organization gives specific consideration to work by artists of African descent, the performances of Mr. Langella and Ms. Jolie are undeniably transcendent and deserving of our recognition,” remarked AAFCA outgoing President Gil Robertson, who will assume the role of East Coast Vice President in 2009.

    In addition to Best Picture, “The Dark Knight” was recognized with Best Supporting Actor honors for Heath Ledger. Viola Davis earned Best Supporting Actress recognition for her riveting performance in “Doubt.” Danny Boyle was named Best Director for “Slumdog Millionaire.”

    AAFCA bestowed its Special Achievement Award to director Melvin Van Pebbles, whose seminal film “Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song” is a foundation of the African-American independent cinema aesthetic.

    “Throughout his long and distinguished career, Mr. Van Pebbles has earned a hard-fought reputation for pushing the bar creatively and socially,” observed Robertson. “We salute his legacy with this year’s Special Achievement Award.”

    Other films in the organization’s Top Ten include “The Secret Life of Bees,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Miracle at St. Anna.” “From independent to commercial films, our selections for 2008 represents a diversity of themes and cultures that are intriguing and worth exploring,” stated incoming AAFCA President Wilson Morales, who serves as the editor of Blackfilm.com and a columnist for AOL Black Voices. A complete list follows.

    The African-American Film Critics Association’s Top Ten Films of 2008 are as follows in order of distinction:

    1. The Dark Knight
    2. Slumdog Millionaire
    3. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    Looking forward to seeing Benjamin Button.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    As a child, Benjamin looks like an elderly man

    One of the most impressive films this season is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This adaptation of a 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald is about a man who ages backwards.

    Visually and conceptually, David Finch’s film is magical. Brad Pitt delivers a powerful performance as a man whose life story transcends time.

    Benjamin, as a child, has the wrinkled face of an 80-year-old, but brimming with innocence. As he gets older, his face turns youthful but it carries the weariness of age.

    Time runs backward in Benjamin Button’s life
    Actress Kate Blanchet plays Daisy, Benjamin’s love.

    The only thing that transcends life is love and its memory. Benjamin’s and Daisy’s relationship embodies that message. The film received a Golden Globe nomination for best picture, making it an Oscar contender.

    REGARDING BEN AFFLECK’S COMMENT: JESUS! The guy was JOKING, damn. He was paying her and the UN a compliment, HELLO?? I mean, sheeeIT….it just goes to show you how MUCH star power Jolie has, when Affleck’s little throwaway line gets THIS much press! My God. LOL Now you see why that lame boring FRAUD Jen Maniston is so succesful getting press…any loser out there can say the magic words, ‘Angelina Jolie,’ and walah -it’ll be good for at LEAST 2-3 days of breathless press, blog, and talk show coverage. I’ve never seen anything like it! LOL

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

    I agree that he was joking, but it’s also exactly why Affleck made that comment – because he knew it would be picked up by every media outlet on the planet, thus giving his own foray into Congo more press coverage. Coverage that his name alone can’t garner. He manipulated the press just like the press keeps accusing Angie of doing. All celebs do it – and now more and more of them are throwing Angie under the bus to get media attention for themselves. If she really is serious about lowering her public profile…then celebs like Affleck and X are going to have to find another way to get themselves attention.

    … The tax returns for Will Smith’s charitable foundation show that several donations were made to art groups, hospital, and religious groups.

    But perhaps the most interesting thing is that Smith donated to the Church of Scientology, giving a combined total of $122,500.

    Smith and Jada have also supported that new private school in Los Angeles, New Village Academy, that uses Scientology learning concepts.

    Jenny Has Stars In Her Eyes Or Maybe That’s Just A Camera Flash

    I’m surprised these two didn’t combust from desperation. I know, I’m such a fake romance hater.
    But Jenny Aniston is gazing at John Mayer the same way I look at a 99 cent McDonald’s cheeseburger or a 9 inch hard d*ick! When was the last time you looked at a dude that way? Gazes like this are only meant for delicious food products or big peens. Mayer is neither of those. A big bag of rubber vag*inas, yes. But not a big peen. And she’s looking directly up his nose and you know that **** is full of mocos. There’s nothing romantic about that.

    Anyway, Jenny has a movie coming out about a dog, so she decided it was time to polish off her “Ah’s soooo in lurveeees” gaze and bring John Mayer out for a little surprise candid photo shoot with the pappies. If these pictures were black and white, they would look exactly like those fake ass photos that come with new frames.

    Here’s Jenny and John leaving La Esquina in NYC last night after having dinner with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos. See! Kelly and Mark are behaving like a real couple. They aren’t looking at each other and probably getting the dry heaves when they touch. That’s real love!

    I’m so excited by this film. I won’t comment on the negative poster. I will keep this post about Brad and Brad alone.

    But I have to say I am so pleased with the positive reviews for this movie. I wondered if Brad would have been able to play that childlike quality of Benjamin at the beginning of the film. Mind you I have only seen the clips. But I was reading an earlier post of comments Angie made about doing Changeling.. How she drew from her relationship with Maddox. It just made me think that Brad playing this child in this old body, that he must have drawn from watching his kids. They are as young as Ben in the beginning of the film. If you have watched or worked with children, then you know that there is a wonder in their thinking and how they see the world. I just think that being a father, and all that it brings, has added to the texture of him as an actor. I also think that he is at his happiest. This is not to say that he was not happy with Jennifer, but I think that his life is now all that he dreamed and more. What a wonder thing to happen. Everyone should be so fortunate. I watched the Today show, and I wished that the interview had been longer. But it is obvious to anyone with eyes, this man is very happy and content.

    I like all the Brange fans want and crave information. It is amazing how he and Angie can stay so low key. I guess they are happy at home with the kids..

    5 stars

    In every other instance, the film uses prosthetics and digital effects with startling skilfulness. I have no idea how you can still see Pitt in the bent, gnarled figure of the early scenes but you can. The film’s pacing also has something to do with the convincing way in which he changes. At 159 minutes, its running time seems leisurely rather than slow. And it’s certainly not measured, which is too dull a word to describe its serpentine twists and affecting switches in mood.

    Again like Gump, Benjamin has a perpetually youthful spirit. He’s a listener rather than a talker, remaining open to every opportunity that’s thrown at him, but while he greets the results with amiable wonder at life’s richness, he doesn’t go on about it.

    Daisy is more temperamental. Full of high expectations, she goes off to New York to try to fulfil them as a ballet student, while Benjamin goes to sea.

    Many adventures follow, including an odd, witty and ultimately poignant romance with Tilda Swinton as an unhappy embassy wife with an urge to swim the English Channel.

    But the film’s centrepiece is Benjamin’s reunion with Daisy, whose self-absorption has now been tempered by disappointment to a graceful acceptance of all that she has been able to glean from her experiences.

    It’s a great performance of Blanchett’s and there’s something moving about the brief, golden period when she and Benjamin become the perfect couple.

    Underpinning it all is a meditation on the double-edged nature of time and the spiralling twists a life takes en route to its end. Time is brutal, the film is saying. Fitzgerald was right about that. Yet there can be moments that defeat time by enduring as long as they remain in someone’s memory.

    I urge you – avoid the trailer, see the film.

    http://weblogs.variety.com/hal/2008/12/seven-pounds-is.html

    OT: Ouch. Good thing Will is box office king and best pals with Sci Fi Man.

    It’s official: Wannabe Oscar-bait “Seven Pounds” is the critical cuddle buddy to Will Smith’s godforsaken 2004 Michael Bay sequel, “Bad Boys II.”

    While “Seven Pounds” is no “Delgo” — which, as S.T. Van Airsdale points out, apparently has already disappeared from theaters altogether — Smith’s new movie was supposed to be a bid at awards-season glory and, as such, it represents a career low. Rotten Tomatoes has the film at a 27% approval rating, with Metacritic weighing in at 35. (By RT’s measure, however, “Seven Pounds” isn’t even the worst film in release; that honor goes to “The Day the Earth Stood Still.”)

    Still, Will! “Bad Boys II” earned a 24% RT rating, although that wasn’t his career worst; that honor goes to the 1999 stinker “Wild Wild West,” which earned a 21% rating.

    What does 27% look like? Something like this:

    “‘Seven Pounds’ features the best performance by a jellyfish in a film this year. Really, the thing is mesmerizing.” — Tom Long, Detroit News

    “It’s probably safe to argue that never before has the spirit of giving been pushed any higher. How high? According to my altimeter, to that oxygen-deprived point where lachrymose meets laughable.” — Rick Groen, Globe and Mail

    “I don’t see how any review could really spoil what may be among the most transcendently, eye-poppingly, call-your-friend-ranting-in-the-middle-of-the-night-just-to-go-over-it-one-more-time crazily awful motion pictures ever made. I would tell you to go out and see it for yourself, but you might take that as a recommendation rather than a plea for corroboration.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times

    Good grief. Still, take heart, Columbia Pictures; even our own Todd McCarthy, who panned the film as “off-putting for its manifest manipulations, as well as its pretentiousness and self-importance,” found something nice to say:

    “All the same, the climax will be emotionally devastating for many viewers, perhaps particularly those with serious religious beliefs, meaning there’s a substantial audience out there for this profoundly peculiar drama, if word gets around.”

    Which, presuming that it doesn’t pull a “Delgo,” it probably will.

    This is a plagiarized post (below) from the US weakly boards – which someone had written about ANISTON….telling people to boycott her DOG MOVIE….there were several posters that piped up that they would be boycotting it because they think she’s a big **** now with the nud.ey cover for a kids movie. But when you read the post – just substitute Aniston for Jolie, as that’s how the oRIGINAL read. Hahahaha. what losers, they don’t even have original thoughts!! I put what the post actually stated in parenthesis.
    ____________________

    Boycott pitt @ 12/19/2008 at 7:34 pm I am tired of Jolie’ s (it read Aniston) pathological evil lying fans.This woman (aniston) is pathetic. She’s made a living by being the least talented, least attractive, yet the most superficial, shallow, sensationlistic fraudulent humanitarian (Friends cast member). It’s time the world knew the truth about this horrid woman. Always a boring interview, add her quick temper and hypocritical actions to her newly short-tempered whiny DUMB behavior and you have someone that screams substance abuse. (they mentioned the toronto film fest, and her latest angry curse-filled outbursts for the dog movie interviews) I find her UGLY, inside and out. (the aniston post ended right here)

    Jolie and Pitt also don’t parent! They have a nanny for each kid and tons of house staff to do the cooking and cleaning! Get into reality. They have night time nannies as well, Pitt said this himself on Oprah, so that “we can get some sleep at night.” (guess she’s such a hater she watched our Bradley’s appearance on Oprah and memorized it. lololol)

    I won’t see any movie that Pitt or Jolie are in. Boycott those losers. (posts followed telling others to boycott the na.ked wh-res dog movie…lolol)

    Regarding Ben Affleck’s comment that AJ is not high profile enough as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, some people were saying that it was said in jest. Whether his comment was just a joke or not, It is still not proper as the subject matter (helping refugees etc) is a SERIOUS thing. It is not something to make silly remarks. There is always a PROPER TIME FOR EVERYTHING.
    He can help in his capacity WITHOUT THE NEED TO UNDERMINE THE EFFORTS,TIME, MONEY spent by other people specifically Angelina Jolie. If he really wanted to help, fine, good for him and for the unfortunate ones but he SHOULD LEARN WHEN TO SHUT HIS MOUTH. What a way to draw attention to himself but to use Ms. Jolie who I have high regard & respect for the things she has done in her own capacity for the past years up to the present.
    SHOWING KINDNESS FOR OTHERS is always good but TO CRITICIZE the kindness of others is JEALOUSY & JUDGMENTAL.

    Not only does Wilson and Aniston have no chemistry with each other, they have no chemistry with Marley or their movie children. Yes, they kiss a lot, but that’s not movie chemistry that’s taking direction. The director, David Frankel, does not give Aniston the right camera angles or lighting and in many scenes she appears to be hiding behind her hair. I couldn’t stop looking at Wilson’s blond bangs draped over his face as a visual clue to his boyish lack of pack leader power.

    I was going to post this quote this afternoon, but I was busy and never got around to it.

    This is probably the most hilarious put-down of a film I’ve read all year. I know that when I saw Changeling they had the trailer for Seven Pounds…and people groaned! When people are groaning at the trailer? How much better could the movie possibly be? I think I even posted after I got hom that Seven Pounds was going to be a clunker of “Wild Wild West” proportions. I think the phrase I used was that Will looked constipated in all his scenes. He had the straining look on his face, which I think was meant to convey angst. Instead all it made me think was that Jada needed to buy him some Metamucil or Fiberall…

    http://weblogs.variety.com/hal/2008/12/seven-pounds-is.html

    OT: Ouch. Good thing Will is box office king and best pals with Sci Fi Man.

    It’s official: Wannabe Oscar-bait “Seven Pounds” is the critical cuddle buddy to Will Smith’s godforsaken 2004 Michael Bay sequel, “Bad Boys II.”

    While “Seven Pounds” is no “Delgo” — which, as S.T. Van Airsdale points out, apparently has already disappeared from theaters altogether — Smith’s new movie was supposed to be a bid at awards-season glory and, as such, it represents a career low. Rotten Tomatoes has the film at a 27% approval rating, with Metacritic weighing in at 35. (By RT’s measure, however, “Seven Pounds” isn’t even the worst film in release; that honor goes to “The Day the Earth Stood Still.”)

    Still, Will! “Bad Boys II” earned a 24% RT rating, although that wasn’t his career worst; that honor goes to the 1999 stinker “Wild Wild West,” which earned a 21% rating.

    What does 27% look like? Something like this:

    “‘Seven Pounds’ features the best performance by a jellyfish in a film this year. Really, the thing is mesmerizing.” — Tom Long, Detroit News

    “It’s probably safe to argue that never before has the spirit of giving been pushed any higher. How high? According to my altimeter, to that oxygen-deprived point where lachrymose meets laughable.” — Rick Groen, Globe and Mail

    “I don’t see how any review could really spoil what may be among the most transcendently, eye-poppingly, call-your-friend-ranting-in-the-middle-of-the-night-just-to-go-over-it-one-more-time crazily awful motion pictures ever made. I would tell you to go out and see it for yourself, but you might take that as a recommendation rather than a plea for corroboration.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times

    Good grief. Still, take heart, Columbia Pictures; even our own Todd McCarthy, who panned the film as “off-putting for its manifest manipulations, as well as its pretentiousness and self-importance,” found something nice to say:

    “All the same, the climax will be emotionally devastating for many viewers, perhaps particularly those with serious religious beliefs, meaning there’s a substantial audience out there for this profoundly peculiar drama, if word gets around.”

    Which, presuming that it doesn’t pull a “Delgo,” it probably will.

    I was searching a great speech about environmental awareness for our English class tomorrow, and then I came across at Helium.com. That site talks about many things, from celebrities to environment. And then I searched for Angie’s name. There are tons of articles about her, but I found an interesting article about Brad and Angie.

    +++++++++++

    Predicting the length of Angelina and Brad’s relationship

    I truly think that Brad and Angelina may just have a shot at making it through the test of time as a couple. And, I have no doubt they will remain committed to their growing brood of kids, no matter what the outcome of their coupling. While long-term relationships in Hollywood probably equate to about five to ten years, it just seems that Angelina and Brad have a bond that will defy the odds. For starters, they are equals in almost every way, whether comparing them in looks, star power, earnings, popularity, sex appeal, fame or acting abilities. They also seem a great match in terms of ambition. Neither comes across as exactly lazy.

    But, I think what really builds a strong foundation for this couple is true love, and their love appears to be built on mutual admiration and respect, shared values and dreams, and similar priorities and choices around family and lifestyle. While as a couple they make an incredible team, each party brought their own strong footing into the relationship. When they met, both were huge stars yet already moving on a path toward more balance and hopes of making an impact on this world. Instead of hitting the Hollywood hot spot of the moment and leaving her child with a nanny, Angelina had already clearly established herself as a philanthropist and as a humanitarian. She had shown great passion and dedication toward helping others, increasing awareness and learning more. She also strongly valued her child and wanted to be a huge part of his life. While Brad was perhaps not as hugely involved in humanitarian causes when he met Angelina, my guess is that Angelina served as an inspiration and spark for helping him jump start that new direction for his life. Brad had also always expressed a strong desire for children, and Angelina shared that view with him and already had one child.

    When I think of true love in the sense of a partner, what comes to mind include the very things I have touched upon above: mutual respect and admiration to drive both the friendship and the romantic sides of the relationship, equal footing and shared passions to fuel the relationship, and similar lifestyles and priorities to move toward accomplishing those goals.

    Angelina and Brad seem incredibly lucky to have found such things in each other. I think what they do as a couple is often brave. They go places others do not dare to visit; they devote both money and time to humanitarian causes. They adore their children and place them first.
    If we were only all so lucky, we would be more likely to agree that Angelina and Brad really do have a good chance of making it. Their relationship seems to be built on a hugely solid foundation, and I wish them much happines

    Did making this movie make you think about your own mortality?
    Well, yeah. And I’m scared to death of it. But, you know, it made me think of things like… [Pause] Angie and I do not fight anymore. What occurred to me on this film, and also with the passing of her mother, is that there’s going to come a time when I’m not going to get to be with this person anymore. I’m not going to get to be with my children anymore. Or friends, people I love and respect. And som if we have a flare-up, it evaporates now.

    Would that have been different two years ago?
    Well, I think it must have been heading this way, But something crystallized for me. I don’t want waste time being angry at someone I love much more than, than… not. And again, there’s going to be a time. This thing is fragile, and there’s a ticking clock on it, and whether it be death or what, there’s just going to come that time. So this movie changed that for me.

    Thank you for posting this. Earlier this week, someone, erroneously, reported that the interview was supposed to air on Tuesday or Wednesday and like a numnut, I recorded the shows – no Brad. And the day that his interview did air, I didn’t record it because, naively, I believed that NBC wouldn’t have the cheek to air it opposite ___’s. I heard ___’s interview on the radio and what a waste of two segments, whereas Brad and Anne actually talked about the movie at length.

    It’s amazing to me that a lack of emotional manipulation could be seen as a liability. Point blank, I tend to not like movies that hit you over the head with a sledgehammer. And I’ve waited for this movie for nearly two years and mercifully, it seems to be totally worth the wait.

    And I hope Elizabeth Moss gets the GG. The TV Guide Channel did a countdown of the best TV moments of ’08, and Moss’s Peggy telling Pete about their baby was one of the best dramatic scenes I’ve seen in years and it was one of the best season finale episodes ever. Moss was elegant and eloquent as Peggy and she achieved the impossible – making me feel sad for douchey Pete (d@mn, I hate that dude!)

    I’ve been following the Caylee case on Nancy Grace and the rationale for not going for the death penalty was because they didn’t have a body at the time. Since they have identified Caylee, the next stumbling block is proving that Casey used chloroform on Caylee, since there aren’t sufficient flesh and tissues to test.

    Val Says:

    These stupid and childish women won’t leave Brad alone and let him live his life according to his terms. It seems that they feel somehow privelige to inform on how he should live his life. Brad and Angie are adults who chose to do what they want and when they want. You can protest or hate them until you are blue in the face and it will not make any difference to them whatsover. If they want to do each other any and everyway then that is their perogative, if they want to have many more children that is to their perogative, if they want to travel the world with their kids that is their perogative also. My guess those who claim to hate them so much were not exposed to a life outside their own little box. If the haters were well traveled, educated, informed they would not speak so negatively of this couple. Their main reason is to discredit them by bringing up their past mistakes. As if they are above sin and have never done anything that needed forgiveness. Little do they realize that when you forget where you came from you are easy to repeat the same mistakes. Angie did not forget her past nor did she pretend to be the so called “All American Good Girl.” Because of that she has grown to be a lovely, caring, dedicated mother of six. Thank God her midlife crisis occurred in her 20s. So I suggest to those who dare come on this thread and speak trash, before you talk about others and judge, please stop and take a look at yourself. Remember that old saying…don’t throw stones…etc. etc.
    Please think before you speak and lastly you have no right whatsoever t judge others! How dare you!

    NAUGHTY ANGIE: Hey guys, I think uh-oh’s account is right. On many levels Angie may be a little immature, after all she’s a dozen years younger than Brad – I have heard a number of people now say that Brad caught her red-handed giving Jane rabbit-ears, and rumor has it, Papa Brad frog marched her to the limo, pulled up her couture gown, pulled down her panties and gave her a spanky for it back in the limo — they heard her whimpers and slaps and could make out Angie sprawled across Brad’s lap thru the tinted windows. They then heard a lot of growls, moans and whimpers so my guess is, at some point Ange got the upper hand away from Papa. Angie apologized in the best way she knew how, and they went on to the after party where a great time was had by all. :lol:
    .
    There, now wasn’t my fictional account better than uhoh’s — hahaha, what a LYING loser. hahahaha

    funny stuff – What happened to Aniston’s face? Those cheek implants are so fresh, I saw her surgeon in the background in every scene

    ———–

    LOL.

    I like this too……….

    Not only does Wilson and Aniston have no chemistry with each other, they have no chemistry with Marley or their movie children. Yes, they kiss a lot, but that’s not movie chemistry that’s taking direction. The director, David Frankel, does not give Aniston the right camera angles or lighting and in many scenes she appears to be hiding behind her hair. I couldn’t stop looking at Wilson’s blond bangs draped over his face as a visual clue to his boyish lack of pack leader power.

    Thanks dulcinea13 for the article in Variety. Now I understand what the campaigning is all about.

    But of course, it puts paid to Lainey’s frequently announced comments that the paparazzi photos of Angelina and Brad with the parents,kids and whoever else, are just BALONEY. LOL

    Why would anyone, including brad and angelina aim to be photographed with their parents or kids as part of their campaign to be nominatedwhen the public or the Minivan Minory who sees these photos CAN’T VOTE and Dont mean sqwat?

    Those who DO VOTE are industry insiders can be persuaded using more direct marketing methods and don’t need to see pap photos.

    ————————————————————————————–

    Exactly Lylian , The rightful voters are mostly interested in Q&A circuits provided by nominees or film makers (according to today Variety’s article , here’s the link to the article …

    Worth watching

    When it comes to acting, Taraji Henson is on the Button

    By LIZ BRAUN, SUN MEDIA

    Last Updated: 20th December 2008, 1:16am

    This year, Taraji Henson, was named one of Variety’s 10 Actors To Watch. Watch her steal scenes, more like.

    Anyone who’s already been watching Henson’s work on TV or in film for the past few years will tell you that the actress is always a standout in any project.

    So it is with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which opens here on Christmas Day. The movie, which is already attracting awards attention, stars Brad Pitt as a man who is born old and gets younger with each passing year.

    MORAL COMPASS

    Henson, 38, has a crucial role in the story as Queenie, Benjamin’s adoptive mother — the only person with the courage to care for the strange, wizened little infant who has been abandoned by his family. Queenie is a moral compass of sorts, and her character is the most memorable in the story. Cate Blanchett and Julia Ormond also star in this tale about love and the passage of time.

    Despite her starring roles in TV’s Boston Legal and such films as Hustle & Flow or Talk To Me, Henson never imagined she’d win a role in a production as big as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    In fact, Henson was reluctant to even audition for her role, because it was the same day she was holding a garage sale at home, and she was convinced she’d never get the part.

    But she got it. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has a far bigger budget than anything else she’s ever worked on.

    “And when you work with A-list actors, you’d better bring your A-list game, or you end up on the cutting room floor,” Henson says, smiling.

    What did she learn by working on such a huge production?

    “Patience.”

    Henson, who has a 14-year-old son, was born and raised in Washington, D.C.

    She seems to have known what her career path would be from an early age. Still, they were detours. Henson was not accepted at a high school for the performing arts, and at the time she thought that meant she had no future as an actor.

    When college rolled around, she went to North Carolina A&T for electrical engineering.

    “I had to pick something. At the university, I remember walking past a theatre-arts class, with my insides longing to be there, but fearing that rejection.”

    Henson still auditioned for a school play, but stage fright kept her from pursuing it.

    “Then, as fate would have it, I failed pre-calculus. I’m so glad I failed it, because if I’d passed, I would have talked myself into staying in electrical engineering. Because we do that, humans do that, when overcome by fear.”

    She called her father, crying over the pre-calculus debacle. “He said, ‘I told you you shouldn’t be in electrical engineering! You need to be an actor! Go back to school! I let you fall on your face ’cause you needed to see for yourself.’ Then he told me I owed him $7,000 for wasted time,” says Henson, laughing.

    She wound up at Howard University and proceeded to dominate all their theatre-arts productions. “Howard is notorious for telling students to change their major,” says Henson. “They tell you, ‘You’re wasting your money.’ They helped me develop my tough skin for Hollywood, and you need it, because Hollywood is constant rejection.”

    Henson’s being modest here — she had nothing but encouragement at Howard.

    She is a gifted actress, and her professors saw it at once. She has what’s sometimes called the ‘It’ factor, that ability to disappear into a character and take the audience along with her on the journey.

    Without any vanity, she says, “I do constantly get told, ‘You’re the heart and soul of the film’. That’s what the critics said about Hustle & Flow, about Talk To Me, even about my first film, Baby Boy — Denzel Washington said I carried the film on my back. I said, ‘What?! Don’t say that, that’s too much pressure!’ ”

    The key to her work?

    “I am an uninhibited person, in general,” Henson says. “I’m not afraid to go to those ugly places, to share some of my pain, because sharing some of the character’s pain means letting the audience in on a little bit of my pain, or the things that make Taraji tick. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable. It’s a horrifying place to live, as an artist,” she says, but she smiles. “You put your soul on the line, to be ridiculed by the masses. We’re like walking, open, exposed nerves.”

    Henson, who will be seen next in Hurricane Season and Not Easily Broken, says she’s passionate about her work.

    “It can be quite spiritual, what we do as artists. I just give it my all, and pray the audience receives it.”

    Pitt: ‘Celebrity hinders good roles’

    Last Update: 12/19 7:14 pm

    Print Story | Email Story

    Actor Brad Pitt attends the premiere of ‘Changeling’ at Ziegfeld Theater on October 4, 2008 in New York City. (Andrew H. Walker, Getty Images) Brad Pitt is plagued by the height of his celebrity – because it “gets in the way” of surprising moviegoers with the challenging film roles he takes on.

    The actor faced the daunting task of playing a man ageing backwards in new film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    And although he’s thankful for the opportunities his fame provides, Pitt insists being a mega movie star can overshadow the intense preparation required for actors taking on difficult parts.

    He says, “I think celebrity gets in the way. If you’re not fully valued it’s easy to surprise. It’s really nice. It sets you up to surprise people. There are pluses and minuses. It’s a card game really. Celebrity can cloud what you’re doing.

    “If I know the degree of difficulty I’m taking on, or someone else is taking on in their respected role, and that’s not always seen usually, it can be avalanched by celebrity itself. But believe me man, I’m enjoying it. I feel quite fortunate.”

    ======================================

    Pitt is a PR ho. He enjoys it , That Angie is getting attacked left and right. I thought he didn’t like acting that much and he was feeling silly doing it. Now it is all about how he loves his job. How much his thought has changed since last year.

    ..

    He won’t ever leave acting. He loves it more than his family. I bet if he feels that Being part of Brangelina(celebrity) will decrease his chances for Oscar , he will leave Angie and kids. This is how much he loves himself and how much he is aware of being celebrity.

    ..

    And i know the meaning of being cornered. Do you know it? If you knew, You would understand , that’s what exactly it means in my post.

    Here’s an update on the property Angie optioned about the former UN arms tracker Kathi Austin

    http://tracypress.com/content/view/16803/2268/

    Smuggling expert hits silver screen
    Written by Sam Matthews
    Friday, 19 December 2008

    Publisher emeritus Sam Matthews says Kathi Austin doesn’t get much attention for her work against weapons smuggling, but having Angelina Jolie step into her shoes might change that.

    The name Kathi Lynn Austin doesn’t register with many people nowadays, but Angelina Jolie’s certainly does.

    The two women’s paths will be merged within the next year when Jolie begins filming, and starring in, a movie based on Austin’s brave exploits as a tracker of illegal international arms dealing.

    I caught a glimpse of what the coming film is all about a weekend ago while attending the annual meeting of the California Press Association in San Francisco.

    The principal speaker was Austin, a 48-year-old San Francisco-based filmmaker and researcher whose story will be told in Jolie’s film. A soft-spoken, surprisingly young-looking woman, Austin has mostly allowed her work in tracking arms dealing throughout the world to do the talking to a broad audience for her.

    The upcoming film will change all that.

    Austin, whose story was first reported in the San Francisco Bay Guardian in July, started out as a member of a family country western band. But after graduating from the University of Virginia, she joined the National Securities Archives, where she began researching the shadow world of arms dealing, taking trips to Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia and Central America.

    She spent several years in Africa, documenting the impact arms smuggling had on the conflicts in Rwanda, Sierra Leona, Liberia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.

    The world of arms dealing is a murky, dangerous one with high stakes and big bucks all scrambled together. She managed to do her research in these dangerous, war-torn areas by maintaining a low profile while patiently digging out the facts.

    She said she had found herself in a number of dangerous situations and had received a number of threats — to herself and even to members of her family — but so far has lived to tell about it.

    For more than a decade, as a consultant to Human Rights Watch, she tracked the arms dealing of Victor Bout, a former Soviet Air Force officer who was one of the world’s largest arms smugglers, especially in Africa and South America.

    Her work was directly responsible for his arrest in Thailand in March. He now awaits extradition to the U.S.

    Austin said in her talk that she recently met with Jolie and her film team, and they were amazed at Austin’s story. One producer called Austin the female equivalent of James Bond.

    When the film will be made and released is still up in the air, but Jolie definitely wants to play the lead role. We’ll all have to stay tuned.

You still come here commenting on people you don’t like, you must be the biggest junkie of Brad and Angie. I hope you have a bad xmas and worse NY. Brad is a million times more gorgeous and a better human being than you could ever be. At least he is not a thief like you.
    Brad is also all natural, not into botox to look younger or hair extensions to conceal part of his face like the ex.. It is called having confidence in yourself and maturing and aging gracefully. Aging is not a disease, it will come to all of us. It is inevitable. You should worry about all that botox maniston is pumping into her face and what it will do to her once she has a kid or hits her 40s. If you see her natural picture (which is very rare) without all the airbrushing and coverings you can see how she is aging fast and she hasn’t had any child yet.

    ..

    At least they don’t look like they are together just for the sake of their kids , Brangelina on the other hand only attend Premiere and RC together or only things related to their movies. Other than that , they don’t bother to go out together.

    ..

    This wasn’t the case last year. They used to go out together , for dinner , shopping and … They now only look like Business buddies.

    ..

    When couple don’t go out together that much and enjoy their time apart from each other , Then that’s a sign for problem between them. Brangelina are just like this. How much one wants to bet that we will see Brad on his bike out and about in L.A this weekend and like always there won’t be any picture of Angie with him? How much one wants to bet?

    Hollywood glamour couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have split after months of rumours about their struggling marriage.

    ”We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate,” the couple said in a statement.

    ”For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any speculation reported by the tabloid media,” the actors said.

    The couple didn’t indicate if they plan to divorce, and Pitt’s publicist Cindy Guagenti declined to comment beyond the statement, which also said: ”We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another.”

    The separation, first reported on People magazine’s website, comes four-and-a-half years after the pair’s wedding and after months of speculation that their marriage was in trouble.

    Aniston has recently been photographed in public without her diamond-studded wedding ring, according to People, although the magazine said the couple had spent the New Year’s weekend together on the Caribbean island of Anguilla with Aniston’s former Friends co-star Courteney Cox and her husband, actor David Arquette.
    AdvertisementAdvertisement

    Pitt, 41, and Aniston, 35, have been together since being set up on a blind date in 1998.

    They were married in a lavish wedding on July 29, 2000, on a Malibu estate overlooking the Pacfiic Ocean.

    Some 200 people attended the event, which included four bands, a gospel choir, fireworks and tens of thousands of flowers.

    Part of Pacific Coast Highway was shut down to accommodate the influx of guests, which included actress Cameron Diaz and most of Aniston’s Friends co-stars. It was the first marriage for both.

    Until rumours began swirling that they were about to split, there were near-constant tabloid rumours that Aniston was pregnant.

    The actress had told People in 2002 that she and Pitt eventually wanted to start a family.

    ”Absolutely it will happen but probably not for a while,” she said at the time.

    Since their wedding, Pitt and Aniston have been touted not only as one of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples but also one of the film industry’s most powerful.

    They are co-owners of the Plan B production company with producer Brad Grey, who earlier this week was hired to replace Sherry Lansing as head of the Paramount studio.

    Aniston is perhaps the most recognisable star of Friends, the sitcom that concluded a 10-year run last year as one of television’s highest-rated comedies.

    She also has starred in such films as Along Came Polly, Bruce Almighty and The Good Girl.

    Her father is veteran soap opera actor John Aniston.

    Pitt, long one of Hollywood’s most bankable film stars, is currently seen in Ocean’s Twelve.

    Other film credits include Ocean’s Eleven, Fight Club, Meet Joe Black, Seven Years in Tibet, Sleepers, 12 Monkeys, Legends of the Fall, A River Runs Through It and Thelma & Louise.

    I think Ben Affleck was just joking but it’s VERY INAPPROPRIATE and in A BAD TASTE! Besides, nobody is laughing!!!

    IMO, humanitarian work must never to be joked about. Never make fun of it. People who do charity work is always a big deal to them as they have witnessed the hardships that the refugees go through. People like Angelina Jolie really go out of her way using time, financial resources and influence/ celebrity to lobby for her causes. We NEVER hear Angie joked about her humanitarian work because she wants TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY as this involves HUMAN LIFE and apparently that is NOT A FUN MATTER. Ben affleck must learn a thing or two from Angie in dealing with this kind of things. Angie studied this (international law) in order not just to be emotional about it and she also knew a great deal of diplomacy. That’s why it’s no wonder Angie continuouly earn the respect of people from all walks of life because they can see how serious she is in her causes (which obviously Ben Affleck lacks!).

    i think , she was alittle over joyed that night. i can’t believe she would put rabbit ear for Brad’s mom . but i think the poster doesn’t sound like a liar. Brad on the other hand wasn’t on the good mood , probably due to what happened during that weekend at BB’s party.

    i hadn’t seen the second one before. what is she laughing at. it seems like she is looking down at someone , can be that bit on that poster’s comment about one fan slipping and she laughed hysterically. i just hope that bit about Brad’s mom being disguisted and Brad’s shaking his head are not true. i don’t want to feel like Brad was embaressed at her during that night. i seriously don’t want to feel like this.

    i’m not even a hater. i just told she looked abiot more happy than usual. seriously look at that pic of her laughing. she is laughing hysterically. it is not what i claimed , it is what i can see. whatever the reason was for that laugh, she was laughing really hard and weird.

    and Brad looked alittle tired or not in a good mood. comon , i’m talking about 30 minutes of their life. the person’s post doesn’t sound like a lie. i just hope the reason for shaking his head was something other than Angie’s actions. he didn’t look that much happy during Red Carpet nor on the after party. Base on the pics , he looked happier being around his costars than being around Angie and his parents. These are only base on 30 minutes pics. i hope just those bits about Brad’s mom and Brad’s being sad and shaking his head are not true. just this.

    You must live in fantasy land. I watched the whole thing from when they came out of the car through the crowds etc and never saw what you saw. You must have been to another premiere in fantansy land.
    Angie always walked fast but when she realised Brad was one or two sreps behind cos he was waiting to make sure his parents were fine, she slowed down and they both walked together holding hands. You said look at Brad’s pics here and I didn’t see the iink to take me to the pics you ******* liar. Did you not hear Brad telling GR from E that Angie’s beauty also makes him gasp every morning. He was all smiles and proud throughout and so was his mum and dad. His mum also showed off the bracelet Angie and Brad gave to her with the pics of all the grandchildren to a reporter and said she will treasure it for the rest of her life. Both Brad’s parents hands were around Angie’s waist at one point.
    Rotfmao you are one hell of a fabricator and a dreamer. Angie was laughing cos she is happy and feels complete in her life. It is called fulfillment but you wonldn’t know what that means, would you? All you know is sadness and lies just like Brad’s ex and stalking people you don’t like, making up stories hoping that someone will notice. Too bad you failed and will continue to fail, next year they take home all these awards they have been nominated for and then you will coil up and die and we will hear less of you and it will be our turn to laugh so loud.

    The smell of desperation from Huvane’s camp is so permeating it’s bordering on pathetic. All those staged pics of the “private” X in NYC, even the so-called sleepover, coupled with smearing stories against Brad/Angie on the blogs, must mean the Maniston camp is afraid Marley&Me will tank. There goes her career as an actress and producer.

    X and trolls are really hurting when they see the JPs are full of joy (like in RCs). What can they do, they love their life now so any expression of happiness is just natural for them. They don’t fake it unlike X. Overjoyed, laughter, whatever, it is still feeling of Joy which is eluding X up to now.

    Just because X is living a miserable life, she also wanted Brad to live the same. The moment Brad decided to get out of the agonizing life he shared with X, that was the beginning of what happiness is all about which he almost forgot how to feel it. With Angie, Brad is energized. Tired but inspired. He likes it. They like it.

    In the meantime, X is still feeling sorry for herself…forever. What a way to live like this.

    As if you didn’t already know this, kelasmo is from Female First and is conducting a little “project” wherein she plans to make up false stories about the JPs. I suppose it’s not quite on the level where the FF lunatics try to cast evil spells on Jolie and Brad but it’s some level of insanity.

    Here is kelasmo’s clever little idea:

    kelasmo wrote at FF on Novemeber 29, 2008:

    “Since it is so difficult to get journalist to expose [J]olie for the manipulative [censored word] that she is I was wondering if we could utilize our collective resources to pull a PR coup, so to speak.

    Is there a way for some of us to privately exchange contact information?

    I have this project I was considering and I need some ideas.”

    December 18, 2008

    Students from Solomon Schechter Day School of Essex and Union in West Orange had a close encounter with popular film star and activist Brad Pitt during their third annual Hurricane Katrina Relief Mission to the New Orleans region Dec. 2-5.

    But the first order of business for the 20 SSDS high school students was to lend a hand in the region’s ongoing rehabilitation projects. They worked in the classrooms of Westwego Elementary School in Louisiana — which took in three schools’ worth of students after the storm — and brought the school 20 boxes of supplies collected by Schechter families and faculty.

    The Schechter students also toured areas of devastation and worked for two days with Habitat for Humanity, yielding four houses now near completion.

    “New Orleans today is not overflowing with volunteers,” said SSDS dean of students Adam Shapiro, who organized and chaperoned the trip. “Had we not helped when we did, the prospect of these families getting in before Christmas would have been far-fetched.”

    In a meeting with the students, Katrina survivor Robert Green, who lost his granddaughter and mother to the storm, told them their work and acts of kindness in New Orleans are much appreciated.

    During the unplanned encounter with Pitt, who has been active in rebuilding the area, he talked to the students about the value of their contributions in rebuilding the storm-ravaged region. According to Shapiro, “It was great not only to see him, but also to see the fruit of his labor in the houses that he is building in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.”

    “We saw barren lots that once had houses on them and right next to them the wonderful houses that Brad Pitt’s foundation, Make it Right 9, are building,” said senior Aliza Tammam of Morris Plains. “His work is incredible and having the opportunity to meet him and also to have him hear about the great things that we did was quite cool.”

    But the students kept their chance meeting with Pitt in perspective. SSDS senior LeeAnn Langer of Highland Park said, “Mr. Green told us that we were the real stars by coming down to help even after three years. He said that even small things that seem insignificant really help the rebuilding process.”

    Mission participants also spent time at Shir Chadash, the Conservative synagogue in Metairie, La. They met Ned Goldberg, director of the Jewish Children’s Regional Service, and presented him with a donation of more than $1,300 that had been collected by the school. The money will go toward buying Hanukka gifts for needy children in the Gulf region.

    Senior Britty Cohen of Edison said, “I think it is so important for people to continue to volunteer — because if not us, who will?

    “It’s amazing — everywhere we went in New Orleans, whether it was a synagogue for dinner, a Habitat site, or talking with civilians, we were always welcome.

    Lawrie Masterson

    BRAD Pitt is the first to concede his life can be chaotic. He and partner Angelina Jolie have busy careers. Both are heavily involved in humanitarian issues and then there’s that tribe of children.

    But in the next breath, Pitt readily admits he and Jolie, 33, are keen on the idea of adding to their family.

    And he doesn’t seem troubled about how they might find the time.

    “We have our ways,” Pitt says with a smile.

    “There are some dry spells. There are a few moments in the desert, but mum and dad can get very creative.”

    For the record, this was the roll call at the Pitt-Jolie breakfast table last time we checked — Maddox, 7, (adopted from Cambodia), Pax, 5, (adopted from Vietnam), Zahara, 3, (adopted from Ethiopia) and biological children Shiloh, 2, (born in Namibia) and six-month-old twins, Knox and Vivienne (born in France).

    * Video: Watch the trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    “It is chaos at moments, but there’s such joy in the house,” Pitt says.

    “I look down and there’s our boy from Vietnam and our daughter from Ethiopia and our girl born in Namibia and our son from Cambodia and they are brothers and sisters, man.

    “It’s such a sight of elation and, given our jobs, we have the capability to provide a home. But, let me tell you, it’s selfish, too, because the rewards have been extraordinary.”

    Pitt says the safety of his family is “the only thing that keeps me up at night” — that and having to pitch in on the nappy-changing duties.

    “Sure, there’s the janitorial aspect of it all, but it’s the worry, because they just mean so much to me.”

    The whole question of mortality and the joys and sadness that come with love and family have weighed more heavily on Pitt lately as he has absorbed the experience of making The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, his third film with director David Fincher and a hot Oscar favourite.

    Adapted by screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, 1994) from a 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is about a man who is born in his 80s and ages backwards.

    As the people most important in his life — such as his adoptive mother, Queenie (Taraji P. Henson), and his greatest love, Daisy (Cate Blanchett), — reach middle and old age, Benjamin “progresses” towards childhood.

    “When we began this, David was already dealing with the death of his father and Eric had to deal with the death of his mother,” Pitt, 45 last Thursday, says.

    “About a month into shooting, Angie’s mother passed away, so this whole idea of mortality and the family being finite and the individual being finite was first and foremost.

The cast includes George Clooney, John Malkovich and Tilda Swinton. It’s a just-for-funsies grown-up comedy marked by strong — and admirably ego-free — performances.

    Profile of C B.

    It’s more than two years since the filming. Blanchett’s viewing of the finished result took place the night before this interview. She was reminded that its themes are timeless and ageless, even if the characters are not.

    “The older you get — and certainly this experience is exacerbated tenfold by having children — the more you love and the more you live, the more you know how much you can lose, so that does make you more vulnerable,” Blanchett, the mother of boys aged seven, four and eight months, says.

    “Watching it last night I was reminded of that sense of invulnerability you have as an adolescent: you are immortal, you can do anything. I remember that feeling and I don’t think I have that feeling any more. I try to re-create that in my work, that I live a thousand lives by playing lots of different characters, but it comes from the fact that we’re all headed in that direction.”

    It’s her successful immersion in all those lives that marks Blanchett as one of the rare actresses whose presence can get a film made, as happened with I’m Not There, the Bob Dylan biopic. Is she a better actress now than 10 years ago? (Her star was still in the early stages of ascent, then. She had just completed the film version of Peter Carey’s Oscar and Lucinda, and was about to start filming on Elizabeth, for which she would receive her first Oscar nomination).

    “I should hope so,” Blanchett replies. “Otherwise I’ve really been sleeping on the job. I was a bit more locked down when I first started making films.”

    She directs her attention to Fincher, sitting on a chair near her. “I don’t know if you can remember the first time you walked on to set. You do? I remember the first time coming from a rehearsal room in the theatre, where you used to all find your way together. It’s so technical, it’s a little bit like going to the dentist.” (Fincher chortles.) “You know you have to sit somewhere and you’ve gotta be good and open your mouth at the right time and not move.

    “It took me a long time to get comfortable with being looked at. No, no, I’m very instinctive, but I think your instincts freeze when you’re in an environment that is alien, and it felt like a very alien environment. So the way I survived was by tricking myself that the camera wasn’t pointing at me, it was actually pointing at the other person. ‘Cos I found that I would do really great stuff (laughing).

    insane Kelasmo tracked by FBI? Says:

    OMG. Everyone knows that the Kelasmo woman is certifiable, even the FFs are scared of her, as they don’t want an association with someone so unstable. Her child-like button premiere plotting is certifiably insane, and may even speak to a mild retardation as evidenced in her post structure. She is unstable. I would advise anyone who tolerates her on their boards, or who posts her crazed plots and schemes to protect themselves legally by distancing their server and sites from this character – she’s been tracked by law enforcement, so you are culpable as well if you are found to be encouraging her schemes and threats against the JPs. Word was, that she is actually the insane Di Wargo, the woman that Perez Hilton exposed last year – I thought I had read that a restraining order had been placed on her by Perez .
    .
    The story is – she was a bat-sh*t crazy middle-aged employee working in a nursing home, masturbating to pics of Pitt and Jolie with one hand, while pounding out hateful maniacal enraged posts with the other. Perez caught her red handed after she sent one of her e-mail missives to him and it was actually on her nursing homes electronic letter head and her work email – she was fired, PRONTO. Now she spends her days plotting against the JPs as ‘kelasmo’. Seriously though, the woman is sick and needs help. She’s so obsessed with Angelina and her family, it wouldn’t surprise me if she has come to the attention of the FBI (in fact I believe I read she had).
    .
    It makes you realize just how careful celebrities have to be. You can almost spot their insanity in their posts, as their grammar is crazy, they are known to plot – their rants are borderline insane, not to mention ridiculous. But yeah, kelasmo is a known joke and scary figure. Thank God the JPs have amazing security.

    debra77 Says:

    I like many fans watched the premier of TCCOBB. I find it funny that after a week people are saying that Angie and Brad were having problems. Why did this not come out right after the event. Well a lie does need time to develop. They are a really sexy and hot couple. As far as Jennifer is concerned, I think sometimes the world corrects a wrong. She and Brad never seemed the right fit. She was with the Sexiest Man Alive… Did he not deserve to be with the Sexiest Woman Alive. Jennifer’s fans complain that John is not good enough for her, yet they get angry when Brad’s fans say the same regarding her with him. Well I am of opinion that Jennifer is with the man she should have been with 7 years ago. She and John are made for each other. I hope they last and stay together.. A match made in heave. I say this will all seriousness.

    Brad is finally with the kind of woman he should have had years ago. But again life happens as it should. Sometimes you have to experience a WRONG to see and appreciate a RIGHT. Angie is his RIGHT. This is not to say that he did not love Jennifer…But loving someone does not mean they are you match. I have watched his interviews and noted his actions. He and Jennifer spent so much time apart. Each in a way living a life separate from the other. When that happens, you find that you have to make a choice of which life is your life.. the one with this other person, or the one without them.. Brad and Angie have made a decision to keep there family together. Thus there is no choice of two separate lives. They are living one life together. They support each other, and as Angie said, THEY made the decision to have a large family, and will work together to make that possible. Again I am a fan, and I wish them the best. Brad seems more happy then ever. He glows when he talks of Angie and his kids. To Jennifer’s fans. If Jennifer had been the one who desperately wanted children and Brad was the one making her wait, would you have thought it OK for her to stay in a marriage that was not all that she wanted, or would you as a fan wanted her to leave and find a relationship in which she could be fully fulfilled. For a woman the timing of having a child is imperative. A man has more lea way. If Brad was holding out, I doubt her fans would have thought it was Ok for him to deny her. They had problems for a long time. I just wish Jennifer had admitted this. She acts as if she was and is just an observer of her own life. She acts like the choices made are not hers. That she just reacts to events.. Not that she is a part of them as well. I note this in many of her interviews, especially as they relate to films, If the film is not good, she makes it seem as if everything around her to blame.. Never her acting or performance.. Just outside stuff.

    That being said, I really hope she makes it work with John Mayer. I thing then she and we can put the whole Jen/Brad saga aside once and for all.

    On a cute note, I think someone here posted that Kirk Douglas wants to meet Angelina Jolie (well if his wife lets him, he says). He says that is one of his big wishes. I find that so sweet. This man is an legend. He has worked with the Greats in Hollywood. And even he want to talk to the JOLIE. I am reminded of what Clint and Anthony Hopkins have said of her. Again these are men of great talent and success. I am more impressed by her, because of what they and other talented actors have said of her work and talent.. Not to mention her beauty (inside and out). I can’t wait for the RC. I hope Brad/Angie bring their A Game. No one does it like the Brange.

    Don’t know if already posted but thought it was a good morning humor…Hello all JP fans…It’s Christmas week and I am so drained. Hope to perk up today…Does anyone know if Brad will be doing any tv appearances leading up to the CCOBB release. Aniston has taken over the airwaves and the minivan majority seem to want Aniston in their top 5 on the People site everyday for the last week or longer or is it just me…Sigh…I hope JP’s are have a wonderful holiday season…

    Aniston’s Equivalent of Couch Jumping

    For all of those who wondered what it would take for Jennifer Aniston to take her relationship with John Mayer into the public sphere, the answer is now blindly obvious – it took having a movie to promote.
    I think it’s a bit odd for the “Marley & Me” actress, who has been incredibly shy of P.D.A since her breakup with Brad Pitt, to suddenly embrace main man John Mayer and gaze lovingly into his eyes in front of a throng of photographers.

    Of course Jennifer should be able to do whatever she wants in terms of keeping her romance’s public or private, but I think the performance she’s giving in this picture is more impressive than the acting she does throughout the two and a half hour picture she’s subversively promoting with this photo op.

    Dear Insider,

    ……and I’m talking you of the ‘Maniston is faking a relationship, and will marry at a later date,’ Insider – ….
    .
    ….look, if you genuinely loathe Aniston as most of us do here then that’s great. Wonderful. But I beg of you, PLEASE do the more SANE sounding Aniston detractors a favor – quit maniacally posting about your ‘married at a later date theories,’ all over the net, on this board, and whatever board will listen – you are making us all look bad.
    .
    MOST of us, have legitimate reasons why we can’t stand the woman – they all center around her being a leech on the ass of the JPs, and most recently, snarking on Angie…we wish and pray and hope with all our might that she will ride off into syndicated sit-com sunset….
    .
    …..but believe us when we tell you we don’t CARE about your theory!! If you need to say it once, twice or even 3 times, GREAT. But NO MORE!! End it. If you believe what your saying – then wait it out. I personally don’t give a f*ck.
    .
    By raging on and on about this theory, you do a disservice to the JP fans who know how to literately present a real argument regarding this woman’s continued coattail ride. IF you continue to do this, we are left with no choice than to conclude you are a subversive troll, intent on making us look bad.
    .
    So, again, I am pleading with you…SHUT THE F*CK UP.

    I feel sorry for these idiots who write disparaging comments on blogs because they think they are safe.

    Charges leveled against man after Craigslist postings
    -

    LARIMER COUNTY – Web chatters firing off insults about people on community Web sites might think twice next time they press the post button
    -
    Larimer County District Attorney Larry Abrahamson charged a 40-year-old Loveland man last month with two counts of criminal libel for alleged posts he made about his former girlfriend and her attorney on Craigslist.org’s “Rants and Rave” section.
    -

    Criminal libel is a rarely used, 1880s-era law aimed at publishing statements meant to ridicule or inspire public hatred.
    -

    It’s a class-six felony and carries a punishment of up to 18 months in prison.
    -

    “It’s been a number of years since I recall seeing it,” Abrahamson said. “It’s not a charge you see a lot of.”

    -
    The case in Loveland began when a woman approached the Loveland Police Department in December 2007 about multiple postings made about her between November and December 2007.

    -
    At least one post suggests that she traded sexual acts for legal services from her attorney, according to court records.
    -

    There’s also mention about a child services visit made because of an injury found on her child.
    -

    Police obtained search warrants for records from Craigslist.org and other Web sites and identified J.P. Weichel as the suspect, the former boyfriend of the woman who shares a child with her.
    -

    In August, detectives confronted Weichel at his workplace, where police said he admitted to the postings because he was “just venting,” according to the court file.
    -
    Weichel did not comment to Loveland Connection about the case.
    -

    Libel commonly is seen as a civil case and attorney’s working for the Colorado Press Association have argued to federal district courts that the state’s criminal libel charge is not constitutional, said attorney Steve Zansberg, who specializes in First Amendment law for Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz law firm in Denver.
    -

    Zansberg argued that the criminal law is easier to prove than seeking damages in a civil case because the defendant must prove their innocence by showing that the statements are true.
    -
    A man in Durango recently was prosecuted on several counts of the criminal libel and a man in Pueblo faces a criminal libel charge relative to a doctored photo of a woman that prosecutors believe was disseminated to ridicule the woman according to reports.
    -

    Possibly the best-known criminal libel case in Colorado came out of Greeley beginning in 2003, when the Weld County District Attorney’s Office pursued criminal libel charges against Thomas Mink.
    -
    Mink published an Internet-based publication called Howling Pig, which was critical of the University of Northern Colorado.
    -
    Weichel’s libel case continues in court next month.

    from Cate Blanchett interview Says:

    http://www.presstelegram.com/lifestyle/ci_11273841

    Does Blanchett resent Pitt being prettier whenever they work together? “He’s not too pretty in the beginning of this one!” she jokes. “I think Brad’s got really good taste, very interesting taste,” she adds. “And my taste is probably akin to his, given that we’ve both been attracted to the same projects. Like-minded people end up circling the same material, often. And the benefit is that you develop a shorthand with people.”

    Asked about her own movie’s chances in the current awards race, Blanchett preferred to focus pragmatically on box office. “You can’t predict that stuff,” the perennial nominee says. “Who knows? You can’t expect that stuff. But what I pray is that, because it often gets top-heavy at this time of the year with so much great stuff, a film like ‘Benjamin Button’ has a chance to find its audience. That’s all we can hope for.”

    copied Says:

    I was and have always been neutral about this woman. Yes, I liked her layered hair in the 90s. I was aware of her hair but didn’t watch her tv show, how weird is that? Anyway, I’m one of the ones who read her 2005 Vanity Fair interview, and that’s when I really became disgusted with her tactics. She had mutually split with Pitt, said there were no third parties that caused the end of their relationship in that ‘official’ press release, said Pitt hadn’t cheated. But the entire interview was a textbook passive aggressive attack against his character. It was a whiny snarky missive in which she even used her friends to paint her as the woe-be-gone wife left behind by Pitt and infer he had ulterior motives instead of his main one — just wanting to get the hell away from her. That bred most of the contempt Pitt and Jolie still get today. The whole ‘fell in love,’ during Mr & Mrs Smith thing – I don’t get the commotion over that, didn’t he and Aniston split BEFORE the movie finished filming? If so, what’s wrong with Brad or Angelina telling their kids their parents fell in love during filming. They shouldn’t have to feel ashamed of something that produced a wonderful family, and an inspiring union that gets things done in the world that matter. Aniston can take her body bling spray tan, pathetic whining, her cigarettes, her b*tching, her catty behavior and her awful movies and gO AWAY. She is not WORTH the acrimony and angst that she brings to the tablen- EVEN IF she were James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Betty Davis reincarnated and combined, it STILL wouldn’t make all of the nastiness of the UNPLEASANT promotional shenanigans she engages in (even butt nekkid photo shoots for X-mas family dog movies) WORTH IT. Since she is NOT, you can really imagine how I feel.

    Film critic Jeffrey Lyons stopped by to share his movie recommendations with Dan:

    The Wrestler — Lyons says Nicholas Cage turned it down and said his buddy Mickey Rourke could use it more. Rourke turned out to be perfect, and should be nominated for an Oscar. He recommends it highly.

    Gran Torino — Clint Eastwood plays an old Korean War veteran who is kind of lost. He could win his first Oscar as an actor. Lyons said it’s good, not great.

    Curious Case of Benjamin Button — Lyons says this will win Best Picture of the Year.

    Valkyrie — Lyons said put aside all the nonsense you’ve heard about Tom Cruise. Lyons says it’s a great movie and Cruise is good.

    The Reader — Lyons says this is a great, unnoticed film. Check it out.

    Critics Corner: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    Posted: Dec 19, 2008 09:01 PM

    Sioux City, IA (KTIV) – Everyone is looking for the fountain of youth and “The Curious Case of Bejamin Button” is a movie about just that.

    Robert Redford played the hunk so many times he had to switch to directing to get respect.

    Now, Brad Pitt faces the same fate.

    Thankfully, he’s got this sprawling film that lets him prove he’s not just a sex symbol, he’s a very, very good actor.

    In the drama, which opens Christmas day, he plays a man who ages backwards.

    He starts out old, then gets younger. Love, however, is ageless.

    Benjamin meets a girl named Daisy when he’s just a boy.

    He looks old, though, so they don’t see each other as anything more than friends.

    After a Forrest Gump like journey to discover his purpose in life, the two meet in middle age and fall in love.

    As played by Cate Blanchett, Daisy is a luminous woman with a passion for just about everything.

    When tragedy strikes, Benjamin shines and the film becomes a metaphor for so much.

    Director David Fincher takes full advantage of the latest special effects, using them to make the gimmick work.

    The actors, though, sell the film.

    They combine aspects of “Titanic” with “The Way We Were” to make this the romance of the holiday season and one of the best films of the year.

    Pitt is so good, particularly when he looks old, you know he’ll be in the hunt for Oscar.

    Make plans now to see the film. It’s a true gift.

    On our 4 star scale, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” gets 4 stars.

    The trolls/haters never cease to amaze me with their craziness. There are some celebrities I don’t like but you won’t see me making up bullsh*t stories about them and posting it on their threads. I don’t have that kind of hate inside me and furthermore life is to damn short to be so hateful.

    While you people are on here and other sites hating and wishing bad things on Brad and Angie, just remember that they are living their lives to the fullest, being happy and in love with each other and raising their kids, and their career is better than ever, have great friends and are respected by people who matter, but what do you (trolls) have nada, no life, no one to love you, you are all just a bunch of pathetic losers who sit behind a computer every single day spewing hate on people you don’t know and will never know. It is a rather sad and pathetic way to live isn’t it.

    I know Brad and Angie happiness are killing the trolls softly, maybe if they actually get their pathetic arses off their computers and go out there in the real world and get a life, stop been so hateful, maybe they just might find some kind of happiness, but I don’t think so, cause no man or woman in their right minds would want these idiots.

    boycott pitt & jolie films Says:

    Some of you still don’t get it. Hate is not the right word to describe what some feel for Angelina Jolie. The word is disgust. Disgust for Jolie and the sycophants who sing her praises despite her piss poor behavior. Disgust that some are manipulated so easily. Some have the conviction that is wrong to sit back and watch this spectacle of elevating a sexually confused, exhibitionistic, and addicted and personality disordered person to some fake hero status. That is not a person who should be held up as an example. She is not a decent person. She is not a “successful woman.” She’s a great con-artist. She had a Father who won an Oscar. That opened doors; she is good at exploiting opportunities because she is self-focused and ruthless. She played the “I Am a Whacked Act over Sexed Person with No Impulse Control” Act. A novel approach since most people draw the line at such shamelessness. Jolie has no regard for marriage, God or other humans that can’t provide her with a nice photo-op. If you are going to blindly worship a celebrity at least find someone who actually has principles and a sense of decency versus one who makes sure that the public is being fed a steady diet of what a generous soul she is via constant photo-ops and sound bites.

    they suck Says:

    The Brangelina Loons are WAY off the reality reservation. They are nasty and unbalanced- I guess that is why they have such a sick bond with Jolie. Loons exponentially overrate Angelina’s looks, talent, appeal and her humanitarian actions. The humanitarian thing is just hilarious; Jolie is not even HUMANE. The Loons’ fairytale beliefs about her are so warped; matched only their murderous rage, hate, and devaluation of Jennifer Aniston. It explains a lot that Loons attack Aniston and over-value Jolie like a cartoon character. They have no empathy for what was done to Aniston and evidently think Jolie is entitled to do whatever she wants because of her surgically enhanced face and saint act. How twisted that Loons are so invested in this freak that they continue to reject reason and common sense. I guess the Loons will just get louder and crazier. Jennifer Aniston is on top of her game, more beautiful than ever, and having a great time. Brad and Jolie look like left over Halloween decorations and their child exploitation has grown tiresome. As if that weren’t bad enough, The New York Times gave the official go ahead that people are now going to talk openly about Jolie’s well known press manipulations, lies, and PR stunts. Something everyone in Hollywood already knew.

    As if you didn’t already know this, kelasmo is from Female First and is conducting a little “project” wherein she plans to make up false stories about the JPs. I suppose it’s not quite on the level where the FF lunatics try to cast evil spells on Jolie and Brad but it’s some level of insanity.

    Here is kelasmo’s clever little idea:

    kelasmo wrote at FF on Novemeber 29, 2008:

    “Since it is so difficult to get journalist to expose [J]olie for the manipulative [censored word] that she is I was wondering if we could utilize our collective resources to pull a PR coup, so to speak.

    Is there a way for some of us to privately exchange contact information?

    I have this project I was considering and I need some ideas.”

    Ahem. Fly back to your tin foil mothership, little crazy one. And learn to spell defamation
    ________________________________________________

    These people are sick…. Someone should send this and the link of Female First not only to Brad and Angelina’s lawyers but to the police.

    It was previously announced that Simon Baker, Drew Barrymore and Sacha Baron Cohen would co-host The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards together and now it’s been announced that Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler and Seth Rogen will join them.

    The show is to be telecast live on NBC Sunday, January 11 (8 – 11 P.M. EST) at The Beverly Hilton.

    A good reason to tune in is to see Steven Spielberg be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field.” A worthy recipient, I’m sure you’ll agree.

    What I’ve always found to be of worth in The Golden Globes is the fact they give out awards for both movies and TV shows. Although they have some pretty dumb categories, such as “Best Musical or Comedy” (what in the heck do those two have to do with one another?!), it’s a unique opportunity to honor both entertainment mediums within the one award show.

    Just a quick note on the nominees: I sure hope that some of the truly worthy films/people get awarded, instead of awards just being given to people for the sake of it or because it feels like they’re owed something. I’d love to see Angelina Jolie pick up the award for Best Actress (she really was phenomenal in Changeling)

    Angie doing Sin City 2? According to OuttaTouch Angie took Z, Maddox and Pax to dinner on Dec 12 with Robert Rodriguez and 2 of his kids…they didn’t give the name, but the man’s got about half a dozen with his former wife…who he cheated on with Rose McGowan and the tabloids didn’t make a big stink about it, but that’s beside the point…
    -
    The interesting thing is the rumors have been floating for the last 4 or 5 weeks that Rodriguez & Frank Miller has been trying to get Sin City 2 off the ground for a Spring 2009 shoot…and of course he’s dying for Angie to play Ava Lord. Frank Miller even said during a press con for The Spirit that the script is ready and they’re working on the logistics of the production – the link to that story is below.

    PS – Dear trolls and internettes, don’t even bother trying to insinuate the Angie was meeting with Rodriguez behind Brad’s back or that she’s having an affiar with him. IF – and that’s a big “if” – the OuttaTouch is accurate, they took their kids to a very public restaurant with lots of people present. There was NO affair, no cheating, no backstabbing, no clandestine plots. So save yourself some typing and don’t even start with that crap…

    Jennifer Aniston’s new movie must blow
    Posted December 20th, 2008 by fashiongossip

    Well, it’s official: Marley & Me is a steaming pile of FAIL sauce ala suck. For the second night in a row, Jennifer Aniston has allowed herself to be photographed in public with John Mayer. Clearly, she’s basking in the final minutes of her fame because after this movie hits, these two could have an orgy in Central Park with The Rockettes, and nobody would bat an eye. Unless you count me on the sidelines yelling “Let’s see some more kicking, ladies!” while trying to pretend John Mayer is an ill-placed fleshy park bench. I’m particular about my holiday cheer.

    My, my, you are quite the moralizer aren’t you? You’re particularly amusing because you base this seemingly ramped up “rage” at 2 people for whom you have decided are worhty of your rage based partially on your assumptions. You know NOTHING about what happened bwteen these 2 during the course of his marriage. let me repeat that. You know nothing.

    You freak out over children “born out of wedlock.” A term more suited to the ignorant 1950s. You rail against Jolie and Pitt and cite other celebs as what – better than they are – who also had children “born out of wedlock” or were “living in sin.” Was Beckham’s affair okay? How about Zeta Jones’ out of wedlock child? How about Gere’s out of wedlock child? You’re quite the hypocrit.

    You also get foolishly taken in by a NY Times hack writer with a piece that was poorly sourced and proven to be false by the NY Times itself as well as by other journalists. Don’t you read follow up articles?

    Huge fame brings with it more venom. It has always been that way. Celebs accept it as par for the course. Notwithstanding your naive little diatribe.

    Entire article at link

    THE DIRECTOR’S CRAFT
    David Fincher’s tale of the ages: ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’

    He was quick to praise Pitt, who, including “Se7en” and “Fight Club,” has now starred in three of Fincher’s seven features. “Some of my favorite shots in this movie have absolutely nothing to do with technology and everything to do with an actor’s choices, like when Brad made these decisions that were odd and childlike, that Popeye face when he’s walking for the first time,” Fincher said. “It’s ultimately those things that win you over.”

    He added, “Is Benjamin absolutely 100% believable in most shots? No, but there are a couple that I look at and go, ‘Wow, we got really close.’ It’s just enough to get you to suspend your disbelief.”

    Fincher is known as a craftsman and tech-head, but he puts CGI wizardry in the service of illusion more than spectacle. “Zodiac,” he said, made extensive use of digitized cityscapes in part because he couldn’t get permission to shoot on the streets of San Francisco. “You don’t want people to go, ‘Wow, that’s the most beautiful street corner in history,’ you don’t want to make it overly flowery,” he said. “When people spend a lot of money on digital effects, I think they want it to count. I just want people to be absorbed in what’s going on.”

    It’s a lesson he learned early in his career, when he worked at Industrial Light & Magic in the early ’80s and was struck by the difference between Spielberg movies and most other effects-heavy films of the period: “It wasn’t just the degree of execution that made those effects, it was the way they supported the story around them. The setup is almost as important as the execution.”

    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” with its blank-slate hero and life-sized timeline, is among other things a curious experiment in viewer identification. “I like to think of the movie as truly experiential,” Fincher said. “There’s no back story. You live his back story; you’re there for everything. For me it really is about living a life. He’s an extraordinary man in extremely mundane circumstances. We all know the first kiss, the first hangover, the first love, the first time you get dumped. And you’re intensely aware of every moment as the inverse of what you’re seeing. He’s not 70, he’s 10; he’s not 60, he just turned 20. And I hope people can chart that from an empathetic standpoint.”

    While “Benjamin Button” might be the only Fincher film to count as a weepie (though “Fight Club” is not without its poignant undercurrents), it shares an obsessive, control-freak quality with his other intricate entertainments.

    Fincher’s single-mindedness has earned him a reputation as a perfectionist taskmaster. “I’ve become obsessive because I think it’s professional,” he said. “If I’m going to take tens of millions of dollars from somebody, I’m going to try to make the best movie I can. And for the actors, I think the duty of the director is to make playing dress-up as effortless as you can. We’re asking someone with a blue stretchy cap on their head to act like an 85-year-old man. So you help out as much as you can. The attention to detail, the obsessiveness that I’m saddled with — it’s me just doing my job.”

    MINI TABLOID REPORT
    -
    NOTE TO GENA: NOTICE THE TITLE “MINI TABLOID REPORT”. THAT’S MY “SOURCE” – the tabloids. If you want links to the tabloids, then use Google. It’s a wonder and a half…
    -
    Sooooooooooo…I read the tabs earlier today and am going to give a shout out to the folks at OK and OUtta Touch for calling bullshit on X. If anyone still needs proof that the tabs are stealing stories for THIS BLOG…then go buy these 2 mags this week. Seriously…they need to be paying our asses some green U.S. currency. I swear they lifted direct quotes from posts we’ve written.
    -
    The Outta Touch had a story about X’s desperation to be relevant and compete with Angie. They talked about X’s 2 mag bitchfests – Vogue & GQ. They said X was the one who renewed this “war of words” and that her doing so after 4 years was sad, pathetic and desperate. Sound familiar? They also took her to task for dragging the kids into her attack. They called that a low blow and tacky. They also claimed that Angie was livid that that the names of her children passed through X’s collagen-filled maw and considers the gauntlet thrown down.
    -
    Outta Touch then went on to say that X is harboring anger and resentment at Angie, but let’s Brad off scott free and he was the one who dumped her. They also had an “insider” who said that X was mad that Brad confirmed to RS that he fell in love with Angie while working on M&MS – even though he and Angie both insist there was no physical affair until AFTER he left X. Then Outta Touch said X shouldn’t really have been surprised because she and Brad had hardly spent any time together in the 2 years before M&MS shot and that their marriage had been strained and breaking apart long before Angie entered the scene.
    -
    Is any of this stuff sounding familiar? Yeah…ATTENTION OUTTA TOUCH TROLL: YOUR EMPLOYER OWES EACH AND EVERY FAN HERE A HEFTY X-MAS PAYCHECK!
    -
    Next they move onto X’s nekkid GQ cover and say that another plea for Brad’s attention, but that X has a history of taking off her clothes and it’s a well-used tactic of hers to get attention. They had pix of some old X nekkid covers – GQ, VF, the current GQ…and maybe Rolling Stone. I can’t remember…shite seared my eyeballs and I was blinded for a good 10 minutes…almost couldn’t finish the article because my retinas hadn’t recovered…
    -
    Outta Touch goes on to say that Angie has gotten back at X because she’s decided to warm up to the Pitts – insert picture of beaming Angie, Jane, Bill and Brad at CCOBB premiere. Yes, that’s right – after nearly 3 1/2 years of feuding with Jane, Angie has finally warmed up to Brad’s mom…with the added benefit of knowing this is sure to piss off X, who used to be close to Jane. This story makes it sound like Jane Pitt is a Ferragamo bag both women covet and there’s only 1 in the entire world.
    -
    Moving on to OK…basically OK had a lot of the same stuff that OUttaTouch had, except without the stuff on Brad and X’s marriage being in the crapper before he met Angie. Instead OK has stole another of our favorite motifs – X is obsessed with Angie and stalking her. Why can’t these rags give us our props?

    OK’s story starts out talking about how fab X looked at the premiere of the dog flick. Fab…but eerily family…like, say…a similar outfitt to waht AngieJo wore to the NYFF Changeling premiere – strapless LBD, peep-toe shoes, long flowing hair. They neglected to mention that X had hair extensions so that her hair is THE EXACT SAME LENGTH AS ANGIE’S…but WE know the truth…
    -
    These butt nuggets even had the nerve to use the exact 2 pictures I used to create a comparison of X copying Angie. To refresh your memories – http://i40.tinypic.com/2cyqzpv.jpg. All they did was remove my “Goddess” and “God Awful” labels. The least they could give a b#tch a shout out or sumpin’! “Composite photo courtesy of PT” would suffice. Look at those pix again – Angie looks like a sophisticated woman of the world…and X, 7 years Angie’s senior, looks like an awkward teenager wearing her first strapless dress at the Jr. prom. I keep wondering where her wrist corsage is…
    -
    Back to the OK’s tale – They go on to say that X obviously copying Angie in a bizzare came of one upsmanship where she’s trying to top Angie. They also mention the bit about X making a joke out of vacaying with the J-Ps in the Hamptons with her carrying Z on one hip and Knox on the other. Then they have a quote from someone who’s supposed to be a highyly placed studio exec – I think we’ve all seen the quote – who’s wondering why X even knows the names of Angie’s kids, says she’s stuck in 2004 and needs to get over her obsession with Angie.
    -
    OK also takes X to task for constantly hitting out at Angie when it was Brad who dumped her – and said X keeps absolving Brad of blame and going on and on about how they’re still on good terms. They trot out a relationship expert who said X putting her anger in the wrong place, that it took two to tango and that Brad wasn’t stolen he went willingly and she needed to deal with the reality of that and be mad at the right person – Brad. Then she went on to say that X needed to get the fcuk over the whole thing because it’s been 4 years and she just needs to move the hell on with her life.
    -
    To tell the truth…I may be mixing up which of these rags mad which point. I wasn’t taking notes and I read both stories fairly quickly because Wal-mart was a fcuking zoo and I just wanted to get the hell out of there before I got trampled by all of the holiday shoppers who were complaining that they couldn’t get through the aisle because of the cart blocking the way…er…that was MY CART, thank you very much! Used to be you could stand in Wal-mart and read mags for hours without anyone ever coming down the magazine aisle. Today everybody and their dog decided to give some cheap ass paperback book to some poor unsuspecting family member for Christmas. Most popular choice – some shitzy book about a rambuctious dog and the havoc he wrought on a columnist’s family. I fcuking kid you not. I’m standing there laughing my ass off at articles making fun of X’s desperation…and people are trying to run me over with their carts to buy the damned dog book. Mark my words – the dog flick will do well…and we’ll NEVER be rid of that dumb btich. Twenty years from now…she’ll be on the cover of AARP with nothing but a tie on. Let’s all hope it’s over her mouth instead of her nips. My eyesight sucks anyway. In 20 years I’ll be blind as a bat and won’t have to worry about the sight of nekkid X searing the eyeballs out of my head…

Since when has X ever needed an excuse to get nekkid on a magazine cover? It’s the 4 the time she’s done it! They said The Urinator pointed out to X that Angie gets naked in movies all the time and has done at least one partially clothed mag cover – I assume they meant last year’s Esquire…which brings up the point, once again, of X buying mags and reading Angie’s interviews!

    Passing Through, you are genius. That, and your others, was so hilarious. This is the honest to gawd truth. I had a dream about the tabs coming clean on the whole triangle, homewrecker, Brad stolen, Jane hates Angie lie that has been going on for three almost three years.

    Of course, as you pointed out, they didn’t come competely clean. But they have cracked open the door, and now others will follow them. The truth will finally be revealed. And will show how the tabs knew the truth, but chose to not print it. And how x complied with the lies by remaining silent and not telling the truth.

    In time the world will know the whole truth and nothing but the truth. And Brad and the jolie will be vindicated. No more homewrecker, stealing Brad, hurting poor lying x, etc labels for Angie. The tabs and x will be shown for what they truly are people who conspired to try and destroy two people who fell in love and told the truth about it.

    Ohmygawd, it seems every day there is a new revelation or award, or just something good happening to the joliepitts. What is worse is that they could have done this four years ago. But maybe it is best that it is happening now. Because it shows just how strong the relationship is between Brad and Angie.

    If they could weather everything they have gone through, have and adopt babies, maintain their careers, and continue with their humanitarian work it speaks volumes about their character. And also shows that they were not lying.

    Passing Through, you made my heart happy tonight. I can’t wait for more tales from the crypt of lies. This is long over due. Gawd I wonder what the trolls, and haters will do now that their bibles are speaking up? Oh, do I hear screaming? Peace

    Henson’s become one hot actress

    AMY LONGSDORF For The Times Leader

    Brad Pitt might call Taraji P. Henson “my hot mama,” but Angelina has nothing to worry about.

    In “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” the 38-year-old Henson plays the 45-year-old Pitt’s mother, which, given the film’s unusual plot, isn’t quite as strange as it sounds.

    Still, Henson says, when she dreamed about working with People Magazine’s two-time Sexiest Man Alive, this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. “Be careful of what you ask for,” she jokes. “Be very specific because God has a sense of humor.”

    So does Pitt. During the making of the movie, he rarely saw Henson out of character. As Queenie, the operator of an old folks’ home in Depression-era New Orleans, Henson’s natural sex appeal was tamped down with aging make-up and her curves hidden under conservative costumes.

    “The other day, Brad saw me all glammed-up, about to do an interview,” Henson recalls. “He looked at me and went, ‘Wow, my mama is hot! I have one hot mama.’ ”

    With or without Pitt’s support, Henson is on a roll. “Benjamin Button” director David Fincher recalls spotting Henson as a hooker with a heart of gold in “Hustle & Flow” and being impressed with what she managed to do with the role.

    “(I was) taken with how alive and maternal she was,” Fincher says. “I found all the warmth, all the non-judgmental aspects of Queenie, in Taraji.”

    Based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Benjamin Button” (which opens Friday) is a project that’s been kicking around Hollywood for nearly four decades.

    It’s no wonder the story of a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards was deemed unfilmable. Advancements in computer f/x and a solid script by “Forest Gump” scripter Eric Roth convinced Pitt — and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall — the time was right for the film.

    Thanks to computer imaging techniques, Pitt was able to play Benjamin from 80 to 18. Over the course of the film, he interacts with a tugboat captain (Jared Harris), a British socialite (Tilda Swinton) and a ballerina (Cate Blanchett).

    The challenge for Henson was acting against a character who wasn’t always there. Like Gollum in the “Lord of the Rings” movies, the early incarnations of the bald, grizzled, arthritis-crippled Benjamin were added after production.

    Even though Pitt shot many of his scenes against a green screen, Henson says he came to the set regularly to help the rest of the cast members with their close-ups. “Brad would be crunched up in a corner, feeding me lines,” she recalls. “I told him, ‘You don’t have to do this.’ But he wouldn’t hear of that. He wanted to be there.”

    While Benjamin grows younger, Queenie, like everyone else in the film, grows older. The actress found inspiration for her character’s subtle changes during a family reunion attended by her mother, grandmother and four aunts.

    “I haven’t been all of the ages I have to play in this film; I’m still 19,” Henson teases. “But at this family gathering, there were women from every age group that I had to portray. So, I just sat back and watched, paying special attention to my grandmother.”

    The recent death of Henson’s beloved father also informed how she played Queenie, a woman well-acquainted with the cruel twists of fate.

    “I’m a trained actress, and I’d like to think I could have always played Queenie, but losing my father allowed me to reach a deeper level,” she says. “I also found that doing the movie was so therapeutic for me. I have a greater respect for life now.

    “As Queenie says, ‘Live your life. You never know what’s coming for you.’ I certainly didn’t see that curveball coming at me, about my Dad.”

    Henson’s father, Boris, who worked as a janitor and a metal fabricator, was an important figure in her life. (Mom Bernice toiled as a manager at the famed D.C. shopping store Woodward & Lothrop).

    After she was turned down for a slot in the acting program at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Taraji decided to give up acting to pursue a more conventional career. She majored in electrical engineering at North Carolina A&T before switching to Howard University. After graduation, she worked as a secretary at the Pentagon.

    It was her Dad who reminded his daughter not to neglect her dream. Finally, in 1996, with only $700 in her pocket, she and her son Marcel, now 13, made the big move to Los Angeles.

    A few years after a regular gig on Lifetime’s “The Division” and roles in films “Baby Boy” and “Hair Show,” Craig Brewer’s “Hustle & Flow” gave Henson’s career a rocket boost.

    “It was such a labor of love,” she says of the flick. “We each got paid about $5, but after that doors I could never get through suddenly opened for me.”

    Henson was in the midst of promoting the movie when she got the news her father was ailing with cancer. She rushed to his side and was with him when he died.

    Two weeks later, she and rappers Three 6 Mafia performed the film’s theme song “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp” on the Oscar ceremony. “I like to think my Dad had the best seat in the house,” she says.

    Henson has three high-profile projects set for 2009: “Hurricane Season” with Forest Whitaker; “Not Easily Broken” with Morris Chestnut; and “Once Fallen” with Ed Harris; as well as a possible appointment at the Kodak Theater on Oscar night.

    Advance buzz on “Benjamin Button” has singled her out for praise, making her a shoo-in for a Best Supporting Actress nod. “It’s fun,” Henson says. “But I like to keep my feet on solid ground. I don’t count my chickens before they’ve hatched. You never know what’s going to happen, but I will say this: I’m honored that my name is being bounced around with Oscar’s.”

    Brad Pitt is on the ‘Button’
    By KEVIN WILLIAMSON — Sun Media
    -
    LOS ANGELES — For Brad Pitt, starring in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button probably felt like a box of chocolates: He didn’t know what he was getting himself into.
    -
    After all, in the movie based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story and set at the end of the First World War, the titular character is born a wizened, crinkled creature suffering the effects of old age, who proceeds to grow young. To pull the concept off, bleeding-edge technology would be required to convincingly show Pitt at various stages of Button’s life: From an 80-year-old toddler to a 65-year-old teenager to a middle-aged man in his 40s to a senior citizen with the youthful physique of a 23-year-old.
    -
    Complicating matters further was that, at its core, Benjamin Button is a romance between Button and Cate Blanchett’s Daisy. They’re first introduced as children — although he appears old enough to be her great-grandfather — and then over the course of decades, meet in the middle before aging to opposite extremes.
    -
    For Pitt it meant extensive make-up and green screen work, with his head digitally grafted onto body doubles for the first third of the film.
    -
    “It’s tough for any actor,” says Button producer Kathleen Kennedy. “They’re not just in a scene doing what they’re doing, but they’re going to be involved in a lot of technology. But he was ready to do it because of his relationship with (director David) Fincher.”
    -
    The pair had previously collaborated on two of Pitt’s best films, Seven and Fight Club.
    -
    “That’s the key with most actors, working with a director who they trust,” Kennedy explains. “If you’re going to step out of what you’ve done before, you want to be working with a director you have confidence and trust in. That’s what he has with David. He knows the movie’s taken care of — he just has to worry about what he’s doing.”
    -
    For Kennedy and her husband/producing partner Frank Marshall, the film’s release on Christmas Day marks the end of an 18-year-long effort to bring Button to the big screen.
    -
    Although long regarded as one of Hollywood’s best undeveloped properties — and courted by such stars as Tom Cruise and John Travolta — they say Button couldn’t have been made without present-day advances in visual effects.
    -
    Specifically, they felt it was crucial to have one actor — as opposed to four — play Button. (At one point, the idea of Pitt and Robert Redford playing younger and older Benjamins was even floated.)
    -
    “Our feeling was you couldn’t sustain the emotionality of the story with so many changes going on with everyone in the cast,” she says. “As a technical exercise on paper, we can figure that out, but as an emotional story, with that many actors changing constantly, we thought we would lose the core.”
    -
    Fincher, who began his career at George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic effects shop, ultimately cobbled together software from various sources — including the gaming world — to produce the seamless effects. Both the results and the possibilities are fascinating. Does this mean Clint Eastwood could now play a 30-year-old? Not yet, anyway, says Kennedy. “It definitely opens the door, but it’s still not easy, it’s expensive and there are so many factors to prevent it from being used whimsically.”
    -
    For all of its originality, one comparison Button is unlikely to shake is its likeness to 1994′s Forrest Gump. Both follow their unlikely heroes through major events of the 20th century. Both concern unrequited love. They even share the same screenwriter: Eric Roth. And for another, even with Pitt’s marquee value, Button remains a tricky sell.
    -
    “I think it is a high-risk project for a studio but I do think there’s an audience that wants this kind of movie again,” Kennedy says.
    -
    She can probably take comfort knowing few expected Gump to become the sensation it was. “Paramount was very surprised at the success. There were a lot of markers that suggested that movie wouldn’t work,” she recalls. “And I actually confess when (Gump director) Bob Zemeckis showed us that script, we were like ‘What?’ ”
    -
    Laughs Marshall, “It was a guy on a bench with chocolates and it’s a love story? Huh?”

    I have to bring up Brad Pitt. I just heard that he was just taken off the cast list for The Fighter. Is that true?

    That was like eight months ago. [Laughs] No, they just reported it now. He was never ‘in,’ he was just reading the script. They reported that he was ‘in,’ and he wasn’t—now they’re reported he’s out eight months later, and he’s not. It’s just because Mark Wahlberg was on a press-line and they asked him whether or not Brad Pitt was doing it [The Fighter], and he said ‘no.’ But this is all old news. It’s all hype. The Fighter is a great script. It’s developing, but I don’t know what’s going to happen with it yet.

    Marley & Me
    By TODD MCCARTHY
    -
    SUMMARY: All that really counts for a movie like “Marley & Me” is that the climactic scenes empty the audiences’ tear ducts, and in this it succeeds to the point that theater managers may need to mop the floors afterward. A stuff-of-life saga as delineated by a family dog’s 13 years on Earth, this perky, episodic film is as broad and obvious as it could be, but delivers on its own terms thanks to sparky chemistry between its sunny blond stars, Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, and the unabashed emotion-milking of the final reel. Fox has a winner here, likely to be irresistible to almost everyone but cats.
    -
    Shifting gears after “The Devil Wears Prada” from making light of corrosive careerism to briskly but sincerely assessing the pros and cons of domesticity, director David Frankel once again susses out what really matters in his material while paying cursory attention to matters of style and other niceties that may count most to aesthetes but go unnoticed by the hoi polloi.
    -
    In adapting John Grogan’s bestseller, estimable scribes Scott Frank and Don Roos have made certain to establish a resilient connection between John and Jenny (Wilson and Aniston), buoyant 30ish journalists who, as the 1990s begin, abandon Michigan for Palm Beach, Fla. Jenny runs her life by making lists of things to be accomplished, while John is more relaxed and uncertain, but the scripters and stars know the shorthand to convey the fun, healthy appetites and productive give-and-take enjoyed by the attractive young marrieds.
    -
    John starts as a lowly reporter on a local paper under an indulgent editor (Alan Arkin), and Jenny does assorted feature writing. Still, John’s not sure he’s got what it takes to be a good father, so he decides to give responsibility and discipline a trial run with a dog. But if the way they raise their rambunctious yellow lab, Marley, is any indication, these two should never have kids.
    -
    As John comments more than once, Marley is “the world’s worst dog”; he chews and tears up everything, jumps on people and is the first dog ever to be “fired” by a crusty old trainer (Kathleen Turner, now well on her way to becoming the new Shelley Winters). The comedy here is so broad as to qualify for a “Pets Out of Control”-type show, and it’s far from the only time Frankel takes a shameless anything-goes approach.
    -
    Despite the warning signs of how disruptive a disobedient little critter can be to the otherwise warm lives of two hot young things in South Florida, John and Jenny soon find themselves with two, and later three, sprigs of their own. The years pass; John becomes a popular columnist (writing often about that darn dog) while his adventurous single buddy, Sebastian (Eric Dane), makes him jealous by globetrotting for the New York Times and scoring lots of chicks; Jenny suffers through the frustrations of early motherhood before coming out the other side; and they finally end up as got-it-all whitebread yuppies with a gorgeous Pennsylvania countryside spread and an old dog, which is where the masses’ floodgates will open and curmudgeons will cringe.
    -
    It’s a choppy, inelegant picture, and those who chronicle the physical particulars of the stars will note that no effort is made to alter Aniston’s pert, firm bod to even momentarily reflect the effects of bearing three children. But the filmmakers know what’s important here, including the stars’ looks, so they rack up a winning score despite quite a bit of sloppy play in the field.
    -
    Animated and emotionally accessible, Aniston comes off better here than in most of her feature films,
    and Wilson spars well with her, even if, in the film’s weaker moments, he shows he’s on less certain ground with earnest material than he is with straight-faced impertinence.
    -
    Production values are routine, even hasty-looking at times. But, again, attention was paid where it counts — the 22 dogs enlisted to portray Marley all more than earned their paychecks, having turned in great performances.

    BAHAHAHAHA!! :lol: …soooo essentially….it’s a movie made for the indiscriminate masses, it goes for the jugular by killing off the elderly dog – she of course, as we knew, didn’t change one iota to reflect age, life, etc. physically, they infer — and the best they could say about her was that “..she comes off better here than in MOST of her sh*t” (YEESH!) and that Wilson and she do the ‘Ross n’ Rachel’ thing fairly well except when he has to be not sarcastic for two seconds, but ‘WHAT COUNTS and who REALLY earn their paychecks,’ are the “22 dogs that give great performances?”
    .
    So if you want to relate to and see dogs perform, this is your movie, the movie, not so much….? Wait is this an awful review, or a so-so one??? LMAO
    .
    Hilarious!

    CLINIQUA Says:

    Here’s how Variety reviews a similarly rom-com’ish actress who they, um, actually LIKE and thinks has talent: Katherine Heigl….
    .
    Frothy, funny and formulaic, “27 Dresses” is a pleasantly predictable romantic comedy that sees Katherine Heigl following “Knocked Up” with smooth moves at the wheel of her first starring vehicle. Set to open Jan. 11, pic could prove a potent draw for femme ticketbuyers, dating couples and any “Grey’s Anatomy” fan who wants to see series regular Heigl in something other than a rerun.
    .
    An engaging actress with a flair for physical comedy and self-effacing humor, Heigl is immensely appealing as Jane Nichols, an ever-helpful people-pleaser whose biopic could be titled “The Runaround Bridesmaid.”
    .
    Whether she’s neatly balancing hilarity and heartbreak while stifling her unrequited love for George, or doing the bickering Beatrice-and-Benedict bit with a well-cast Marsden, Heigl effortlessly radiates the kind of charisma that can make auds fall in love with a character (and, of course, the actress who plays her).

    Comment from a movie site. Maybe not such a diversion. If this is true than the producers should be ashame to be selling this movie as just about Marley.

    byter Author Profile Page says …
    if it were simply that the dog dies, I’d have no problem labeling Marley a fine family film. However, bboudreaux’s 7-year-old will also be confronted with (1) a miscarriage, (2) post-partum depression and (3) mommy and daddy arguing bitterly. Yes, I know kids can handle a lot, but these are pretty weighty issues to dump on a youngster suckered in by an ad campaign that makes it look like “Beethoven” revisited. I think parents should be warned that there will be stuff far harder to deal with than the weepy death of a beloved pet.

    I read the Marley and Me book several years ago, I liked the book but it did make me cry several times. If the movie stays true to the book, I don’t believe that it would make a good movie for a small child, not just because of the dog’s death.

    Bromance Part 5. Fincher and Pitt. Interesting article Post style. Entire article at link.

    BRAD’S BROMANCE
    CHESS MATCHES, FAMILY VACATIONS, BASKETBALL GAMES: INSIDE PITT’S TOTALLY BFF LIFE WITH ‘BENJAMIN BUTTON’ DIRECTOR DAVID FINCHER

    By REED TUCKER
    Pitt and Fincher on the set of “Benjamin Button” and (inset) at a 2002 Lakers game.

    December 21, 2008

    You’d be forgiven for thinking love is dead in Hollywood. After all, it’s a town where every romance seems to end in one of two ways: with a leaked po**r**n tape or an adulterous one-night-stand with that guy from Maroon 5. But this is the story of one of the few showbiz partnerships that works – a heartwarming tale of a bond so strong, it borders on fantasy. And like many people’s romantic fantasies, it happens to involve Brad Pitt.

    This other relationship gives him something entirely different but just as important: creative fulfillment, industry cachet and a chance to commune with a soul mate. Brad Pitt and David Fincher 4-ever!

    On the surface, the two appear to be mismatched. Fincher is the low-key, obsessively driven director of “Panic Room” and “Zodiac,” who says he has trouble getting a decent table at restaurants. Pitt is the universally famous, outgoing pretty boy whose every bike ride, shopping trip and sneeze is chronicled by gossip mags. But the pair are the best of friends in real life, and together they’ve produced two unforgettable movies: “Se7en” and “Fight Club.” On Christmas Day, they’re set to release their third collaboration, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” and early buzz tags the epic period film as a shoe-in for a Best Picture nomination.

    Thank God these two found each other.

    Pitt first discovered Fincher’s work in 1992, when, after a drunken night out in Mexico, he went to see “Alien 3,” the director’s first feature film after directing videos for Madonna (“Vogue”) and Paula Abdul (“Straight Up”). The two met in person a couple years later, prior to shooting “Se7en,” and took a liking to one another. These days, their families vacation together (Fincher has a teenage daughter), they enjoy playing chess, talking sports, are spotted together at Lakers games and, by chance, live just down the street from each other in the tony hills below LA’s Griffith Observatory.

    No one would be surprised if they spent afternoons swapping baseball cards in a tree house together.

    “They’re not different at all,” says Frank Marshall, producer of the “Indiana Jones” and “Bourne” movies, as well as “Benjamin Button.” “They both have a great sense of humor. Very dry, very sarcastic. They share that. Also, when I’m around them, they’re both kind of shy in a funny way.

    “Button” screenwriter (and the godfather of Pitt’s son Pax) Eric Roth agrees that Fincher and Pitt are similar. “They both travel their own ways and have strong personalities,” he says. “They both have a healthy cynicism about things. They have a good sense of humor about themselves. They’re not overly earnest or pretentious. They don’t suffer fools.”

    “On-screen and off-screen, Brad’s the ultimate guy,” Fincher told London newspaper the Guardian. “If I could be anyone, it would be Brad Pitt. Even if I couldn’t look like him. Just to be him. He has such a great ease with who he is.”

    The two click even better professionally. Taraji Henson, who plays Benjamin’s adoptive mother in “Button,” even called Pitt Fincher’s “muse” in USA Today.

    “They have an enormous trust for one another,” says “Button” producer Kathy Kennedy. “It allows them to step outside of what people might think is their range. Each of them in this film was trying different things than they’ve done in the past.”

    Fincher has developed an equally grating reputation, and nearly every article written about him uses the word “difficult.” Robert Downey Jr., who appeared in “Zodiac,” compared Fincher’s set to a “gulag,” and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal complained about the number of takes the director demanded. Gyllenhaal said it got as high as 90 for a single scene. Fincher only cops to 56.

    R. Lee Ermey, who played a cop in “Se7en,” once told Underground Online that Fincher “wants puppets. He doesn’t want actors that are creative. If you’re not worth a s – - – at acting and you’re not creative, then I would recommend that you go work with David Fincher.”

    “He is meticulous,” says Arnold Kopelson, who produced “Se7en.” “He’s meticulous about the filmmaking process, and he wants it to be in accordance with his vision.

    Holiday movies focus on power of transformation

    Bill Goodykoontz
    Gannett News Service

    The Grinch gets a raw deal. So does Scrooge.

    Here we have two of the best characters in all of the holiday stories who make remarkable transformations.

    “It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge,” Charles Dickens wrote of Scrooge toward the end of “A Christmas Carol.”
    Advertisement

    Perhaps in the story, yes. But what are Scrooge and the Grinch known for now?

    Their miserable older selves.

    It’s not fair, but what is, even during the holiday season? But there is this: Both Scrooge and the Grinch are part of a grand story-telling tradition, one that plays out especially strongly this time of year: the transformation.

    Whether it’s these miserly, miserable coots getting their hearts warmed (or, in the Grinch’s case, growing three sizes), George Bailey having second thoughts about suicide in “It’s a Wonderful Life” or Doris Walker coming around to believing in Santa in “Miracle on 34th Street,” the transformation of a central character is a holiday tradition, particularly in movies.

    “We like to see people redeem themselves, be given a second chance,” says Daniel Craig, the current James Bond. He stars in “Defiance,” which opens in January, in which he plays a former crook who helps lead Jewish resistance in World War II – another kind of redemption. “I mean, thank God. There’s forgiveness.”

    Especially this time of year. Unless you’re a cousin of the pre-converted Scrooge, there’s something about the chill in the air, the decorations, the excitement among kids that is so contagious that it overtakes even the most cynical adult and just puts you in the spirit.

    “The Christmas season has strong transformative connotations by its nature,” says Christopher Sharrett, a professor of communications and film studies at Seton Hall University in New Jersey. “It prepares us for winter while reminding us, with its bright lights and green wreaths, of the promise of spring. This notion of rebirth complements the religious idea of Christmas.”

    “I think all drama is about transformation in a way, whether it’s internal or external,” says Cate Blanchett, who stars in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” opening on Christmas Day. (It’s not a holiday movie per se, but it does involve transformation of an extreme sort: Brad Pitt plays a man born old who ages backward.)

    “Bruno Bettelheim, who writes really interestingly about fairy tales, says that Little Red Riding Hood goes into the forest and comes out changed,” Blanchett says. “Stories, drama, take you into the forest, the unknown. That’s what drama should be. People really love that adventure.

    On Movies: ‘Red Carpet’: Let the star-staring begin

    By Steven Rea

    Inquirer Movie Columnist and Critic
    The critics groups’ citations, the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, the Independent Spirit nods, the 2008 10-best lists – it’s beginning to look a lot like awards season.

    What better time to pick up a copy of the gold-covered tome Red Carpet: 21 Years of Fame and Fashion (Welcome, $34.95, 532 pp.), a mammoth photo compendium of dolled-up, decked-out celebs parading past the paparazzi on their way into Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe, Emmy and People’s Choice awards ceremonies.

    The work of veteran Hollywood photographer Frank Trapper, the book is a textless orgy of A-list and B-list glam, featuring the beaming mugs and betuxed and begowned bods of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Cate Blanchett, Will Smith, Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson, Steve Martin and Diane Keaton, Courtney Love, Susan Sarandon, Eddie Murphy, couples old (Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett), couples still-going (Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher), couples by genetics (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).

    It’s like having your own curb-side spot right there where the limos pull up, only neatly packaged, without the noise, and plopped down on your coffee table. Gawk on!

    I adore Taraji. She imo is a very good actress. She was simply amazing in Hustle & Flow. Hope we get to see her in more movies.

    That was a great read on the history of CCOBB

    So Brad was never attached to “The Fighter” huh, that is good cause I don’t care for Marky Mark and don’t want Brad to be in movie with him.

    I can’t believe that some people are giving the X praises for that piece of cr*p movie even if it is faint praises. Where the hell is Owen Wilson anyway? Isn’t he is this cr*ppy movie as well? All the attention is given to the old hag, like she is the only one in the movie. The dog and Owen are forgotten

    Button sewn on the Fabric of New Orleans

    Watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, you can’t imagine the film taking place in Baltimore. The filmmakers weave in New Orleans’ rococo textures; Hurricane Katrina becomes part of the framing story. Yet Roth says he and the director, David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac), would have loved to root it in Baltimore, Fitzgerald’s original choice. “The Chesapeake Bay was always a big part of it – quite honestly, it was a bit of a stretch for me to transfer the feeling of the bay and the ocean beyond to the Mississippi River. The story of Benjamin going on a tugboat came from research I did on the Chesapeake Bay.”

    Some jazzy flavorings, a strong African-American culture, and the richness and tensions of a Southern city – Roth and Fincher felt Baltimore had all that, as well as the streets and settings cited in the Fitzgerald story. “But the harbor looked nothing like it did in 1919; even with painting and construction and the use of CGI [computer-graphic imagery], it would have been expensive to restore it.” Louisiana offered a more aggressive production-incentive program than Maryland; the decision was ultimately a financial one. Roth admits, “Once you write in a script – ‘Exterior: New Orleans: Day’ – a whole character emerges. But Baltimore would have been equally fine.”

    After Fincher decided on Louisiana, Roth told him they would be remiss not to include Hurricane Katrina. “But we had to make sure it wouldn’t be exploitative.” Button is born at the close of the First World War. The telling of his story becomes complete during the approach of Katrina. Roth wanted Button to differ from Forrest Gump, “where historical events became pivotal. I didn’t want that here. I simply wanted the people to be part of whatever was happening in the era.”

    I so agree with you. I really thought she was in her late 20′s early 30′s. I am so tired of people talking about how wonder Jennifer looks. I think she is pretty, but so far from beautiful. To don’t see how anyone could compare she and Angie. But back to Taraji. She is a beautiful and talented woman. I hope to see her more on film. she has great range.. Comedy, Drama and she sings too. From the clips she looks amazing in this role. Yeah and she is not posing naked in a mag. Talent doesneeds not special trappings. This woman is beautiful, and no surgery. A mother to a 14 year old. Now take a look at her body. Awesome.

    But off topic..Oprah is airing The Brad/Cate interview on Monday. I think the ratings must have been great. It says a lot that it is airing the week it comes out in the theater. This is great PR.. I have to give O her props. I just hope she does not show the Jen interview. But then again. That interview include Beyonce too. So it is hard to tell who the viewers tuned in to see. I just read Brad RS interview today. It is so obvious how happy and content this man is. He just seem to have found his way. His career is hotter then it has ever been. I am just so excited to see what is next for him and Angie on the big screen.

    To the people who dislike them, why don’t you go and support the stars and want to be’s that you do like. Why waste precious time reading and blogging about these two people. Their fans can hold down this thread. You are now welcomed to leave. Have fun.

From the clips she looks amazing in this role. Yeah and she is not posing naked in a mag. Talent doesneeds not special trappings. This woman is beautiful, and no surgery. A mother to a 14 year old. Now take a look at her body. Awesome.

    But off topic..Oprah is airing The Brad/Cate interview on Monday. I think the ratings must have been great. It says a lot that it is airing the week it comes out in the theater. This is great PR.. I have to give O her props. I just hope she does not show the Jen interview. But then again. That interview include Beyonce too. So it is hard to tell who the viewers tuned in to see. I just read Brad RS interview today. It is so obvious how happy and content this man is. He just seem to have found his way. His career is hotter then it has ever been. I am just so excited to see what is next for him and Angie on the big screen.

    To the people who dislike them, why don’t you go and support the stars and want to be’s that you do like. Why waste precious time reading and blogging about these two people. Their fans can hold down this thread. You are now welcomed to leave. Have fun.
    ++++++++++
    Oprah will re-run Brad’s interview? I watched Brad on Larry King re-run last night. I like Brad’s interview with Oprah the most. I will watch it again.

Sci Fi man is on his last leg and needs the Nazi movie to do good to save his Studio. BP and AJ are international stars with striving careers and humanitarian projects. Both BP and AJ movies do well domestically and most importantly, internationally. The power of BP and AJ.

    Tom worked very hard to promote his movie. Brad will never have to work this hard. Tom hopes his movie is doing good desperately. Didn’t he call all scientologists to see his movie. If not, he is dead. I still laugh at he got replaced by Angie in Salt.

    I know there seem to be a race between Tommy boy and X as to who looked more desperate. They both put on a two month campaign. Tommy boy dancing on some Canada TV show. X taking it all off for GQ. Tommy boy going on the Today show to apologize to Lauer. X doing the walk of shame or sham with Peeboy. I could go on.

    So Angelina actually went to dinnner with RR and his kids?

    .

    Why would she go there with kids , if they wanted to talk about a film? :roll:

    .

    Sounds weird . And he took his kids as well, right? And he wasn’t with his wife , right? Does this make any sense for anyone?

    .

    And it was while Brad was at Berlin? So Can we just say , she was looking for approval from her kids? Maybe she wanted to know whether her older kids will like him and will have a good relationship with their future siblings , to help her with her future disicion ? You know , She puts her kids first. :lol:

    .

    And i’m LOL at this idea of her going out and having dinner at very PUBLIC resturant without any picture. I thought Passing Gas told She can’t believe that ‘Sheila’ ‘s story on ianundercover.com because Angie had Brad’s parents with her all the time and she didn’t have time, right?

    .

    It seems NOT ONLY Angie got lots of time for herself , But ALSO She is at PLAY whenever Brad is away.

    .

    Anyone smells something from this whole recent actions? They can’t find time for dinner date together , But they got time for dinner date with other people. Who are they fooling? I think not only that INSIDER was right about Angie’s cheating , but also She probably will prove to be right about BREAKING UP within next 2 years. Maybe BREAKING UP withing 6 months or after AWARD SEASON. :lol:

    That’s what I don’t get about some of these lame talking heads.
    .
    I mean do they really think they can talk sh*t about Angelina, and not pay the consequences (which would be never getting an interview again, or even being in a position to get a gig, because Jolie and Pitt will NOT be bothered to even plan on stopping to talk to you – and if you can’t get the biggest ‘get’ of all, why send you?).
    .
    I will never forget, Seacrest just went off on her, that next day after the Golden Globes in jan of 2007…saying she was moody, and not smiling (nevermind, the pics of her embracing Brad, and smiling all up and down the rc, and caressing his nape when he didn’t get it for babel, and assorted other things), and he even inferred she didn’t support Brad, then his side monkey snarked maybe she wanted to be ina 3rd world country, and Peecrust was like, well then she should have gone and not showed up — all of THIS, you’ll REMEMBER was his SET-UP for his bestest gayest pal and radio partner at the time, west coast US ragazine editor Ken Baker to then come out with HIS memorable smear of Jolie a month later (Twisted Double Life)…meanwhile, we later learn that her mother has relapsed and is ill and would die in a matter of weeks.
    .
    I will hate that closeted wimpy Peecrust til the cows come home.

    I bet Peecrust was doing all sorts of drooling over the new and improved equally closeted Cruise.

    AP Picks Top 10 ‘Pop Culture’ Moment of 2008
    (Some of my favorites below)

    Published: December 21, 2008

    NEW YORK In any normal year, it would be impossible to discern a coherent theme from a year of American pop culture, try as we journalists might. This year was different.

    FEBRUARY

    The Obama slogan “Yes We Can” ricochets across the Web in rapper and songwriter WILL.I.AM’s viral video hit, starring a host of celebrities. It’s not the only good news for Obama: His campaign raises a staggering $55 million this month, a success attributed to small donations gathered on the Internet.

    And “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” spoofs the media’s fondness for Obama later, Clinton will refer to the skit in a real debate.

    JULY

    Bonjour to the new JOLIE-PITT twins, who emerge in France, where parents ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are hunkered down on their enormous estate. And BATMANIA reigns, thanks to LEDGER’S stunning (and posthumous) portrayal of the Joker in “The Dark Knight.”

    SEPTEMBER

    “I can see Russia from my house!” FEY debuts her impersonation of PALIN on “Saturday Night Live.” Kudos to the “SNL” writers, but you can’t say Palin doesn’t give them plenty of material including verbatim chunks of her rambling exchanges with KATIE COURIC. The CBS anchor, long plagued by low ratings and high expectations, makes a welcome comeback.

    The presidential campaign seeped into our culture everywhere it could: into our music, our television, our street art, our Internet habits. And it was a symbiotic relationship, for pop culture seeped back into our politics, too. Remember the bizarre moment Paris Hilton and Britney Spears became part of the campaign, courtesy of a John McCain ad likening Barack Obama to a vapid Hollywood celebrity?

    Or try this: Tina Fey and Sarah Palin, walking by each other at a fake news conference on “Saturday Night Live,” indistinguishable from each other in matching red blazers and Palin hairdos. Even Fey’s toddler daughter had trouble telling them apart that night.

    Now Palin’s back in Alaska, Fey’s back on “30 Rock” and, oh yes, Obama’s on his way to the White House. But they weren’t the only big names in the 2008 pop culture firmament. A chronological journey back:

    Behind the scenes of ‘Benjamin Button’: Day 4 – Dressing for the part
    Posted by Mike Scott, Movie writer, The Times-Picayune December

    Today — in the fourth in a seven-part series of video vignettes leading up to the Dec. 25 opening of the fantasy-epic “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which was shot in and around New Orleans in late 2006 and early 2007 — costume designer Jacqueline West discusses the film’s costumes.

    Easily one of the biggest-budgeted films to shoot in the city, the film has already garnered a raft of nominations early in the 2008 awards season, and for many New Orleanians it is the most-anticipated film of the holiday season.

    Check back daily for new installments; the links below will be activated when the respective videos (all provided courtesy of Paramount Pictures) are available. (You may need to refresh the page.)

    Tom went on Ryan Sh*tcrest radio show something he would have NEVER done 4 yrs ago.

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

    Tiny Tom went to freaking Canada and did morning shows, afternoon shows, night time shows, magazines, TRL type shows…the whole kit and caboodle. When was the last time he did that?

    In the U.S. he’s done the same thing. He went back on the Today and all contrite and shite…sucking up to Matt Lauer. He’s working hard to pimp his flick because if Hitler doesn’t make some money, then UA is going to fold and he’ll have no production contract with any studio and he’ll have to go begging for work instead of producing his own movies.

    How many interviews has Brad done for CCOBB? Eh…4 or 5 maybe? No night-time talk shows, 1 magazine, 2 talk shows and a press con for foreign press. Plus, he did Larry King and the Today show more to pimp MIR than CCOBB. In ohter words – Brad’s let the movie speak for itself, hasn’t wh#red himself out to any media outlet on the planet and has let his co-stars bask in the adulation that’s coming their way for their performances.

    Tiny Tom fondly remembers the days of yore when he didn’t have to f e l l a t e every media outlet to promote his crappy flicks. Tiny Tom, like X, has a helluva lot more riding on the success of his movie than Brad has on his. Brad’s got movie scripts coming out the wazoo. Tiny Tom? Not so much. I pray it stays that way. The world really doesn’t need anymore Tom Cruise cheeseball flix.

    X has gone so far over the top promoting the dog flick that the only things she can do to get more attention are -
    -
    1. Sex tape with The Urinator – sans the peeing and defacating
    2. Announce a pregnancy
    3. Announce a marriage
    4. Enter rehab for her coke addiction
    5. Get arrested for DUI (always a popular with celebs)
    6. Slur Angie some more

    I so agree with you regarding Ryan. I can’t stand him. Talk about desperate. He has this need to be and be seen as successful. I have to mute him every time he comes on the tube. I hate him and Mario Lopez too. UGH>>> But branching off a bit. I had to get my own copy of Rolling Stone Interview with My Brad. But I don’t know if this has been posted before. I read something interesting in the magazine interview and I think it goes along with what you posted regarding Ryan being left out of the loop.

    The interviewer asked Brad
    ” Did it give you any pause, though, to cooperate with the magazines who are funding these guys”
    (meaning the papz that are stalking them for pics)

    Brad’s response.
    “When I say we’ve cut ourselves off from all of that, we’ve really cut ourselves off. We don’t have that stuff in the house. We don’t read it. I just find it toxic and unhealthy. BUT we can ask around and find out which magazines have been really trashy with us. So we still have our self-respect, and we’re not going to support this entity that’s been sensationalistic and nasty. In our mind, People magazine does more things about the positive spirit of people , so that’s how we came to our decision”
    (this is regarding the pics of the twins)

    I found this so interesting… You don’t mess with the Jolie-Pitts. They will cut your ass off.

    So now we know that it is not OK to stay IN TOUCH with the negative stuff. It may be helpful to change their LIFE and STYE. and start telling the truth. Then maybe they can be a STAR in the Jolie-Pitt PR agenda.
    If they follow US fans things may work out for these and other tab mags.

    On a positive note. I love all the positive review regarding TCCOBB. Brad is getting wonderful reviews. So happy for him. He really deserves it. I also loved how he said he wanted the awards and attention for David F. A true gentleman. I miss seeing the family. I see the negative posters are still here. I wish they would put some hits on the Jen/Jon thread. It has not reached 200 post yet. this post will be in the 1000 by tomorrow. Anyway great news for the movie. I’m going on opening day. It is the one movie I want to see.

    I actually think she’ll have something along the lines of a Vince Vaughn fake engagement up her sleeve. All of a sudden, sometime after X-Mas (especially if the dog movies gets reamed, and/or fails at the b.o., leaving her to stare enumerable fabulously hot and loved up red carpets with Brad & Angelina in the face, as well as another adoption and/or a holiday wedding) you will see her spotted wearing a ring (remember the canary yellow square cut diamond she started wearing on her ring finger, coyly intimating it was from ‘a friend,’) – this will set the weeklies and rags into a tizzy wondering if she and Peeboy are engaged. It’s either THAT, or she’ll start wearing smocktops, or BOTH. All to somehow get ink away from the JPs. Remember I called it.

    Errr… RR is engaged to Rose McGowen. And given that both Brad and Angelina stated that their kids were huge fans of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, it doesn’t seem far-fetched that the kids would want to meet the guy who directed it. And if the children with him were the ones he credited with coming up the story, then all the better for Maddox and Pax.

    As for something shady going on, the last thing any smart person would do is bring children along. Little kids are like tape recorders… actually, they’re better because they can pick up on vibes and they have no problem letting the other parent know if Mommy or Daddy or Mommy or Daddy’s friend was acting overly friendly towards them or the parent.

    Just ask Jude Law; his kid ratted him out to the ex-wife (versus Sienna Miller).

    Which game? Eh…doesn’t matter. Whatever it is, I’m not watching it. We don’t have the luxury of getting good games here in Missouri. No matter that the NFL race looks like all the locals stations show are Missouri and former Missouri teams, ie, the suck ass Chiefs, the God awful Rams and the inept Arizona Cardinals. Occasionally we get thrown a bone with the second game and see something relevant to the playoffs, but more often than not we get another shitzy AFC West game because that’s the division the Chiefs are in. And the NBC and ESPN games this season haven’t been worth spit either. Also – ESPN needs to get rid of the incredibly annoying Tony Kornhiser. He’s a writer for a reason – cuz he sucks at broadcasting. And Ron Jaworski is about as personable as one of The Urinator’s butt nuggets (thanks to MK for my new favorite expression).

    Falling Hard for the Big Easy
    ‘Benjamin Button’ lured to New Orleans by music, mystery — and tax breaks

    By CHRISTOPHER JOHN FARLEY

    In the coming movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” Brad Pitt shares the screen with one of the biggest stars in the film industry: the city of New Orleans. “New Orleans is a place of old haunts and mystery and magic and music,” says Mr. Pitt.
    [Brad Pitt in 'Benjamin Button'] Paramount Pictures

    Brad Pitt in ‘Benjamin Button’

    “Benjamin Button,” which stars Mr. Pitt as a man who is born old and ages backward, was among the first major movies to be filmed in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated much of the region in 2005. The production is part of a surge of filmmaking in the area. So far this year, New Orleans has hosted 21 movie and TV productions with budgets of $300,000 or more, a record for the city, according to Jennifer Day, director of the New Orleans Office of Film & Video.

    The New Orleans-based “Benjamin Button” is part of a long love affair Mr. Pitt has had with the city. The actor, who was born in Shawnee, Okla., and raised in Springfield, Mo., had previously starred in 1994′s “Interview with the Vampire,” which was set in New Orleans. He now has a house in the city, along with his companion Angelina Jolie and their children. Mr. Pitt also helped start the Make It Right Foundation, a group which aims to help redevelop the Lower 9th Ward, which was hit hard by Katrina and is one of New Orleans’s poorest neighborhoods.

    Brad Pitt with Angelina Jolie in New Orleans.

    *****The “Benjamin Button” crew helped restore parts of the flood-damaged city. The production repaired some local houses and streetcar tracks, among other things.******

    Movies ranging from “New Orleans” (a 1947 film with Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong) to “The Big Easy,” (a 1987 murder mystery with a soundtrack featuring musicians from the region, such as the Neville Brothers) have drawn on the city’s cultural and musical heritage.

    “Benjamin Button” represents a comeback for filmmaking in the region. In the wake of Katrina, the number of films shot in the city dipped temporarily, although the 2006 movie “Deja Vu” starring Denzel Washington, was based there.

    This month, “Benjamin Button,” which opens Dec. 25, held a premiere in the city. Mr. Pitt says he’ll continue to be involved in the area’s cultural life. “There’s a timeless quality to New Orleans that you can’t attribute to any era or any trend,” he says. “They are their own thing.”

    PT I was referring to the Bucs/Chargers game its over now. Bucs sucks big time. Sorry you don’t have access to the games. you got cable right? I’m watching the Patriots/Cardinals game now.

    Yes, I’ve got cable, but it doesn’t matter. The local stations show what they want to show. They think locals want to see Missouri teams…but I don’t give 2 shites about the Rams/Cardinal or the Chiefs. Never have, never will. My sister is a die-hard Steeler fan. Has been for dog years. The only time we get Steeler games anymore is when they’re playing the Rams or Chiefs or they’re the Sunday/Monday night game. In the past I’ve followed the Cowboys, Vikings and Eagles. I haven’t really followed the Cowboys since Aikman retired and they traded Emmett Smith. It looked like they were getting better with Romo…but then he goes and starts dating Chestica. The Vikes have sucked since they got rid of Culpepper and had that big sex scandal that caused them to trade or let go a lot of players…and that had that stupid running back with drug problems who caught caught with a kit to help his cheat the drug tests. And the Eagles have sucked because McNabb got injured 2 years ago and he’s got major brain camps anyway. The guy sucks under pressure. The other team I like to watch was the Falcons…but then Michael Vick went to jail for dogfighting, of all stupid things. So I’ve been in football limbo for a couple of years…but at this point the local stations have pissed me off to the point where I hardly ever bother to watch other games unless it’s a big game or the playoffs. The best thing about the post season is the Rams, Chiefs and Cards NEVER MAKE THE PLAYOFFS ANYMORE. Therefore…lots of good games to watch! LOL.

    BTW – I looked into switching to Direct TV so I could get their NFL package…but it’s like $500 for the package…and their internet service is ridiculously expensive. A satellite modem is somthing like $120 per month EXTRA – and it’s not even as fast as a cable modem or DSL. So I nixed the Direct TV package. Besides, I’ve had my cable modem for almost 9 years and I don’t want to have to change my main e-mail address.

    Hmm Button is world wide but have no idea what time its out in other countries. Maybe one of the regs will be able to answer that question #918.

    We as in family are going on the 26th to see Button so am really excited. We saw the Changeling and its my fav movie of Angies .. She was a phenomenal feat of memory as Christine Collins.
    Changeling is a must see. Another Clint Eastwood great piece of work.

    Curious Case of Bejimin Button sounds like a masterpiece.

    Good news for Brad and Angie winning not one but two noms for Best Actor and Best Actress also AFTA put Ben Button at one of the top 10 of 2008. Awesome!

    Nothing happening with the dog movie in the way of awards.
    Oh i am sure peeps will be taking their kids to see it but i heard there are going to be 3 dog movies to choose from. Don’t know if mom and dad want to take their kid to a movie where the dog dies at the end. My kids lost their nana not too long ago so wil not put them thru anymore grief. I am not comparing pets to humans as one and the same but families are very fond of their pets. Losing one is very painful to a family. hmm nope tks will tke a pass on that doggie death.

    The Curiouis Case of Ben Button is one we wouldn’t miss.(not the kids ..us. Great Christmas movie about family and love.
    Very anxious to see this film as heard so much good stuff about it.

    4 more days left till Christmas..

    Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night.

    Arkansas family welcomes 18th child, a girl
    -

    Fri Dec 19, 11:04 AM PST
    -

    An Arkansas woman has given birth to her 18th child.
    -

    Michelle Duggar delivered the baby girl by Caesarean section Thursday at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. The baby, named Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar, weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long.

    -

    “The ultimate Christmas gift from God,” said Jim Bob Duggar, the father of the 18 children. “She’s just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters.”
    -
    The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters

    -.

    Jim Bob Duggar said Michelle started having contractions Wednesday night. She needed the C-section, her third, because the baby was lying sideways. Jim Bob said both baby and mother were doing well Thursday night.
    -

    “We both would love to have more,” he said.
    -

    The cable network TLC broadcasts a weekly show about the Duggars called “17 Kids and Counting.” Chris Finnegan of TLC — which handles public relations for the Duggar family — said the show’s name would be updated to account for the latest addition to the family. He said TLC also will air a show Monday on the baby’s delivery.
    -

    Jim Bob Duggar is 43, a year older than his wife. Their oldest child, Joshua, is 20.
    -

    The Duggar children
    Joshua 20
    Jana, 18;
    John-David, 18;
    Jill, 17;
    Jessa, 16;
    Jinger, 14;
    Joseph, 13;
    Josiah, 12;
    Joy-Anna, 11;
    Jeremiah, 9;
    Jedidiah, 9;
    Jason, 8;
    James, 7;
    Justin, 6;
    Jackson, 4;
    Johannah, 3;
    Jennifer, 1.
    Jordyn-Grace, New Born

    “Our whole family is excited about Jordyn’s addition to our family,” Jim Bob Duggar said. “She’s just perfect in every way.”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Will I be on a death wish mission if I held my breath for articles from Pseudo Psychologist calling Michelle a child addict? How about a blurb stating she is trying to compensate for something from her past?
    -

    No? Oh come on. :(
    -
    Ah well, at least I can count on the Fanistons to give me an Outrage over this, ya know like they do with the JPs for having six children….a third of the duggars.

BP and AJ have the means and love to have naturally and adopt as many kids as they want. Hens don’t like it because it shows the love and commitment BP and AJ have. They are still waiting on Papa Pitt to come to his senses and run back to Whiny. Meanwhile, Whiny X is on her booty call tour wearing her fashionable scarf. Nothing says love, like a well dressed cougar on display. My bad!!!!

    Ms.JOLIE4ever! Says:

    Brian Helgeland isn’t the kind of screenwriter most moviegoers know by name– but then again, how many screenwriters can anyone really name? But even if he flies under the radar, he’s one of the bigger ones out there, having won an Oscar for writing L.A. Confidential as well as writing the words of Mystic River, A Knight’s Tale and Conspiracy Theory.

    Now he’s bringing his expertise to Salt, that spy project that was once about a man named Edwin Salt played by Tom Cruise, and now is Angelina Jolie playing Evelyn Salt. Moviehole says Sony has hired Helgeland to give the Salt script a pass, specifically to improve on the dialogue. Apparently Sony has a lot riding on Salt as a potential franchise-starter, getting Jolie away from “serious movie” mode and more into the ass-kicking role that made her famous.

    The Moviehole guys point to L.A. Confidential’s script as an example of Helgeland’s skill with dialogue, and I couldn’t agree more. You know, on the Q.T. and very hush-hush. His participation in the project indicates how serious Sony is about it, and might mean there will be spy not named Jason Bourne or James Bond for the world to care about.

    Did E! Entertainment send an apology to the JPs for trespassing on their Los Feliz property with a $250,000 donation to the Jolie Pitt Foundation in 2007? Looks like maybe they did.

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

    Where’d you get that info? If they did send a “donation” more than likely it was an out-of-court settlement.

    #####################

    Their foundation lists it as a 2007 contribution. No law suit was ever filed. My guess is it was a “make nice” gesture that the JPs accepted.

In less than 4 yrs Bradley has 6 kids. 3 by adoption and 3 the old fashion way. No waiting for career, no I’m scared; none of that bullcr*p. Let’s try for baby and 9 months later, well there’s Shiloh! Lets try again, BAM! Viv and Knox!
    _____________________________

    I came across an old interview of hers that dateline was doing with each of the castmembers of Friends as it was wrapping up – I had time to kill, so I was hoping to catch her in a few more Streisand like moments lolol. Nothing so blatant but I had to laugh and laugh at this quote – keep in mind, this is the period where Brad and she were most likely on the verge of calling it quits 2004-ish…he may have even already spilled the beans re his ‘attraction,’ and feelings for Angie…she, as we know, was still trying to keep the relationship on life support, she says:
    .
    Matt asks, what’s next…she replies:“Well first, I want to take a long vacation. I’d like to see as much of the world as I can, before I have a child.”
    .
    BAHAHAHAHA!! Okay, now CUT to 4 years later. 4 years, in which time not only has she NOT seen hardly and of the world (and no the Girls Gone Wild compound in Meh-hi-co does not count, neither does nyc, or chicago — yes, the UK is overseas, but how much of it are you ‘seeing,’ when you’re just acting as Peeboy’s stage photographer and middle-aged groupie!
    .
    This is a woman who has not TRAVELED, has NOT seen the world in the 5 years+ that friends has been OFF THE AIR. So tell me, if this is something she sooooo wanted to do BEFORE she had a child – just WHEN is she going to do it?? LOLOL Time’s a wastin’ hon.
    .
    I think you need to skip the trips and get knocked up or start adoption proceedings. Just goes to show you she’s talking out of her asss at almost all times. She’s such a f*cking LIAR. UGH. :lol:

Even after the man has said that he was going nowhere, wasting his life, had a midlife crisis in his 30s and didn’t want to waste time on being unproductive and not living his life to the fullest? Damn…the man all but said he’d wasted 6 1/2 years of his life and they’re STILL wishing and hoping and praying for the bad old days of suntanning, exercising, smoking and vacaying in Me-hee-co? I don’t know whether to laugh or shake my head in disgust…

    You know what pisses the hens off most is that Angie’s career was and IS sizzling hot. Yet she’s twice taken 1 year breaks to have babies with Brad. And X couldn’t even be bothered to do that even when a pregnancy was written into her tv show. THAT is why they’re all still bitter – because Angie’s not the least bit worried about her career…and X is out pimping a flick where she plays third fiddle to a dog and a B-list actor…yet SHE is supposedly A-list and can’t get cast in a movie with other A-listers. Meanwhile Angie pops out twins and 2 months later announces she’s replacing Tom Cruise in a film and the character is being re-written to accomodate the change in gender. X? She’s talking about POSSIBLY doing yet another romcom with yet another B-list actor. Reality is a harsh b#tch to live with and the Fanistons are reliving the good old days as an antidote to X’s continual slide into obscurity.

Other than the PR “romance” with peeboy, and the susequent public break-up and make-up, what else did she do? That is why she is still getting some notice, because in addition to using Brad and Angie for relevancy, you have these blogs who are run by women, who continue to prop her up. There is a blog “wwtdd.com” which is run by a man, and he hates her with a passion, and continuosly call her on her phoniness.

    By the way, did she do an interview with The Today Show, seeing that it is Jolie-Pitt Central?.

    IT’S hard being Brad Pitt. The star repeatedly tried buying the complete works of Hungarian cult director Bela Tarr from a small DVD store in Budapest as a Christmas present for Angelina Jolie, but whenever he called the place, they thought it was a joke and hung up on him. “He tried several times on the phone but had to give up. They just didn’t believe him,” an aide to Pitt tells Britain’s Daily Mail. Finally, he got a friend in the city, opera singer Laszlo Domahidy, to buy the collection for him.

    Have a chin bigger than an anvil? Louis Vitton has the answer for you!
    The Jen Aniston massive chin covering scarf!
    Vitton got the idea for the design after seeing Aniston’s face detract from her looks repeatedly on magazine covers. Sources say he said, “Why should such a lovely womean be hampered by a huge facial appendage?” He and the design team proceded to sketch several version of a designer scarf designed to camouflage facial deformities.

    “Even 110 million dollars cannot fix a chin like that”, he stated, “women all over the world Rumor Willis, Torrey Spelling…wel they should not have to suffer the negative effcts of such a handicap! The best thing about our scarf is it is ‘unisex’! Folks like Jay Leno can wear it too!” while the new design does have a specialized market, it is projected to be a hot seller this holiday. “Jen has agreed to model it for us…she is totally on board!” says a rep of the vitton company, We are hoping to get Bette Midler for the older set soon!”

    Song: Elle etait si Jolie

    The song is a very popular ballad, with Barrière reminiscing about a girl he used to know and how pretty she was. Her beauty was apparently so much that he does not dare to persue her. This song was sung by original singer Alain Barriere, then by other singers such as Charles Aznavour, the song I use is from an old no name CD, so I don’t know who sung it either Alain Barriere or Charles Aznavour.

    The meaning of the song has nothing to do with Brad and Jolie, I use it because there are lots of “JOLIE” in the song.

    here is the translation of the song:

    Title: Elle était si jolie (she was so pretty)

    Elle était si jolie que je n’osais l’aimer
    (She was so pretty, that I didn’t dare to love her)

    Elle était si jolie, je ne peux l’oublier
    (She was so pretty, I can’t forget her)

    Elle était trop jolie quand le vent l’emmenait
    (She was too pretty when the wind took her)

    Elle fuyait ravie et le vent me disait:
    (She escaped full of delight and the wind told me:)

    Elle est bien trop jolie, et toi, je te connais
    (She’s very pretty, and I know you)

    L’aimer toute une vie, tu ne pourras jamais
    (You couldn’t love her all your life)

    Oui, mais elle est partie, c’est bête, mais c’est vrai
    (Yes, but she has left, it’s a shame, but it’s true)

    Elle était si jolie, je n’oublierai jamais
    (She was so pretty, I’ll never forget)

    Aujourd’hui c’est l’automne et je pleure souvent
    (Today it’s autumn and I often cry)

    Aujourd’hui c’est l’automne, qu’il est loin le printemps
    (Today it’s autumn and the spring is far away)

    Dans le parc où frissonnent les feuilles au vent mauvais
    (In the park where the leaves tremble in the ill wind)

    Sa robe tourbillonne, puis elle disparaît
    (Her dress swirls, then she disappears)-imagination

    Elle était si jolie que je n’osais l’aimer
    (She was so pretty, that I didn’t dare to love her)

    Elle était si jolie, je ne peux l’oublier
    (She was so pretty, I can’t forget her)

    Elle était trop jolie quand le vent l’emmenait
    (She was too pretty when the wind took her)

    Elle était si jolie, je n’oublierai jamais
    She was so pretty, I’ll never forget.

    ********

    You better believe it… just the other day (last week as a matter of fact)Lamey posted some pics of her fav X cuddling with JM in NY, and she also included a picture of the black n’ white wedding photo of Brad and X in the post, comparing the two shots of her looking up to her faux man and her actual wedding photo.
    (Well of course she is always going to be looking up to some man, X is a SIZE QUEEN after all, and is of average height, so the BIG men tend to be taller than her anyway, silly Lainey)

    My point is, many people in the media will not let this “triangle” die, simply because they long for the day when Brad is going to “come to his senses” and go back to the the X, they think he is longing for those days too. Well I have news for them, ain’t going to happen. He’s already committed heart and soul and kids to The Jolie, ain’t nothing going to tear him away from her.
    So the hens keep on yakking about “he DIDN’T marry Angie, at least he married X”. So the H*ll what? They’re adults, and they’ve both been there done that, have the photos to prove it, and got the T shirt as well. It doesn’t mean a thing, considering the other types of committment they have made to each other. Or then again, they may have gotton married in secret in front of the kids and family, and that’s ll that matters to them.
    But that Lainey, definitely a not so secret Faniston.

    SUPPORT FOR LIFE

    15 October 2008
    by Miech Phalla, MJP Agriculture Coordinator

    Samlaut district resident, Surs Moeurn, has had a difficult and unstable life. A former monk and soldier, Moeurn, now 50 years old, lost his sight and both his hands to a landmine. His injuries make it extremely difficult for him to provide for his family. For almost 20 years, between 1984 and 2001, Moeurn lived in a plastic tent with his wife and two children in extreme conditions. With little food throughout most of the year, his children could not attend school as they needed to help him tend to the meager crops in the field.

    Recently, this all changed for Surs Moeurn and his family. With assistance from MJP, who provided them with a proper house, a plot of land, a cow and other necessary equipment, Surs Moeurn can now build a better life for his family. “My dream comes true, Mrs. Angelina Jolie is like my parents”, he said. “My life is now meaningful, I have enough food, my kids can go to school, I have cow for reproduction and land for cultivation,” he added. Moeurn still worries about his children, his income is irregular due to his handicap, but he is in a much better place to be able to provide a healthy future for them.

    ………………………….
    , MJP took the lead in implementing the Ministry of Education’s child-friendly school programmes in Samlaut. Our programmes focus on teacher capacity, school curriculum, nutrition, gender segregated sanitation facilities, reading facilities, potable water, school uniforms and merit based-teacher bonuses. The programmes are focused on 2 primary schools and one lower secondary school located in two key villages in Samlaut where population numbers are greatest. In 2008, technical support will be extended to include 2 additional primary schools and the project’s new pre-school programme (early childhood centres) called: BEST START SAMLAUT!
    Given the importance of creating a positive school mindset in the villages, MJP also launched the first-ever kindergarten classes in Samlaut. In 2007, 140 children attended the classes. MJP sent the kindergarten teachers to receive a basic 3-day training programme on government methodology and curriculum.

    Maddox Jolie Pitt Foundation started in 2003 and still going strong

    bdj, the hens are mad that Brad has kids because it shows up the hag. 6+ yrs baby on the way and in the end nothing. In less than 4 yrs Bradley has 6 kids. 3 by adoption and 3 the old fashion way. No waiting for career, no I’m scared; none of that bullcr*p.

    You know what pisses the hens off most is that Angie’s career was and IS sizzling hot. Yet she’s twice taken 1 year breaks to have babies with Brad. And X couldn’t even be bothered to do that even when a pregnancy was written into her tv show. THAT is why they’re all still bitter – because Angie’s not the least bit worried about her career…and X is out pimping a flick where she plays third fiddle to a dog and a B-list actor…yet SHE is supposedly A-list and can’t get cast in a movie with other A-listers. Meanwhile Angie pops out twins and 2 months later announces she’s replacing Tom Cruise in a film and the character is being re-written to accomodate the change in gender. X? She’s talking about POSSIBLY doing yet another romcom with yet another B-list actor. Reality is a harsh b#tch to live with and the Fanistons are reliving the good old days as an antidote to X’s continual slide into obscurity.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I know Drew B. could just slap X., all this pimping of the dog movie while giving old so subtle digs at INTIY. If every blog and newpaper article is about being tired of her and her “look at me” thing she has going on that makes her doing pr for INTIY (which is only a month to 6 weeks away) impossible. With the award shows coming up in January I doubt she will even take a break from being seen. Can’t let Brad & Angie do red carpet without a shot of X on the beach or out an about with the urinator.

    Sweet story. A Mother’s love and joy for her Actress daughter.

    December 22, 2008

    Movie Star’s Mom

    Palm Coaster’s daughter in ‘Benjamin Button’
    By AUDREY PARENTE
    Staff Writer

    Not many local moms can say their daughters introduced them to Brad Pitt at the premiere of one of this year’s top movies.

    But Bernice Morton of Palm Coast can say just that about her daughter, Taraji (Ta-ra-gee) P. Henson, who stars with Pitt and Cate Blanchett in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” set to open Christmas Day.

    The film, based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, already has gathered five Golden Globe nominations, and eight nominations for Critics’ Choice Awards — including Henson for best supporting actress by Critics’ Choice.

    “I could hear people screaming her name. Photographers saying, ‘Taraji, Taraji turn this way. Look this way.’ It gave me chills,” Morton said. Taraji was selected from a list of African names, Morton said. “I am so proud of her.”

    On the red carpet — although newspaper accounts said the carpets were actually gray, creating a “film noir effect” — Morton said Pitt and Angelina Jolie walked across to fans and signed autographs. Later, during the black-tie after party, her daughter introduced her to Pitt while the cameras flashed.

    “It was exciting,” Morton said.

    She can’t help but be proud of her daughter, but Morton’s not all that surprised. She always thought her daughter would be a model or an actress.

    “She wasn’t shy at all and always wanted to be the center of attention,” Morton said. “She did a lot of plays in college and worked on a dinner cruise boat where they had to perform and wait on tables.”

    A stint working at the Pentagon when the two lived in Washington, D.C., didn’t deter Taraji from her acting passion, Morton said. Nothing sidetracked her.

    “She was in a talented teen contest and competed against her best friend. She came in second to her friend. Then she thought she would go to Duke Ellington School for the Arts in D.C., but her best friend got accepted and she didn’t,” Morton said. “She thought she might be an engineer, but she wasn’t good in calculus. So she came back home and went to work.”

    Henson worked her way through Washington, D.C.’s Howard University and graduated with a degree in theater arts, even having a son, Matthew, in her junior year.

    After graduation in the late 1990s, Henson went to live with a cousin in Los Angeles.

    “Taraji went with $700 in her pocket, and her son and stayed with my niece, whose son was working on a TV sitcom. But the show ended and my niece went back to Maryland,” Morton said. “My daughter stayed and found a little place and started working for temp agencies.”

    One of the receptionist temp jobs turned into full-time work, but that got in the way of auditions, so Henson left that behind. Meanwhile, acting work started rolling in. Her credits include everything from TV appearances on “ER” and “CSI” and a season on “Boston Legal” to movies like “Hustle & Flow” with Terrence Howard to “The Family That Preys” with Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard.

    The actress just finished “Hurricane” with Forest Whitaker and currently is working with Brian Presley and Ed Harris on “Once Fallen,” both movies set for 2009 release. But Henson hasn’t let the fame go to her head and said her success is due to the work ethic she learned from her mother.

    “I always knew how to pay the rent and put food on the table,” Henson said in a phone interview. “Acting is something I have wanted to do, and it feels incredible to make a living at something I am really passionate about. At the end of the day, I may be a celebrity, but it’s a job that pays the bills, and I don’t put more on it than that.”

    She said Brad Pitt isn’t any different and “doesn’t put himself on a pedestal. He’s very regular,” she said.

    And, about her mom, Henson said: “My mom is my No. 1 fan, and I love her dearly — she is my ladybug. They (ladybugs) show up at the most unexpected places and they are like angels,” she said. “She’s an angel.”

    East Bay actor trying to make a name for himself in ‘Benjamin Button”
    By Chuck Barney
    Contra Costa Times
    Article Launched: 12/22/2008 01:03:00 AM PST

    He doesn’t have the biggest role in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” an Oscar-contender headlined by Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. Far from it.

    But when the credits pop up at the end of the spellbinding film, his name — all 21 letters of it — dominates the screen like no one else’s among the star-studded cast.

    Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

    Try saying that three times fast.

    Ali, an Oakland-born basketball player-turned actor, realizes the moniker might not glide easily off the tongue a la Tom Cruise or Mr. Pitt. And he admits that can be a disadvantage in Hollywood, where he is striving to gain more attention. On the other hand, it has its pluses.

    “It becomes a conversation piece the minute I walk into a room,” he says of his first name, taken from the Hebrew Bible. (For the record, it’s pronounced Maw-her sha lau HASH baz) “Once you meet me, you’re never going to forget me.”

    At least that’s the plan. After building his resume with roles in several TV series, including “Crossing Jordan” and “The 4400,” the soft-spoken Ali, 34, is making the move into feature films. In addition to “Benjamin Button,” he can be seen opposite Harrison Ford and Sean Penn in the upcoming “Crossing Over.” That’s some heady company for a guy who, not all that long ago, was doing Shakespeare in Orinda.

    “I look at it like television, for me, is Division I (college) ball,” he says over a light breakfast at a
    Advertisement
    Rockridge cafe. “Now it’s like stepping up to the NBA, and I’m fighting for more playing time. I’m looking for where I can fit in.”

    The sports metaphors make perfect sense to the 6-foot-1 Ali, who played hoops for coach Ernie Kent at St. Mary’s College and once dreamed of going pro. But he gradually became disillusioned under Kent’s rigid system, and, just before the start of his junior year, his life changed direction when his father died.

    “I went into a funk. I developed insomnia,” he recalled.

    During those sleepless nights, Ali began penning emotion-packed poetry — poetry that he felt compelled to voice and act out.

    “That was right around the time that the spoken-word poetry movement began to gain momentum,” he says. “It was a natural progression for me.”

    How did his hardwood teammates react?

    “They supported me,” Ali says. “They always knew I was kind of a weird dude — a little off. But in a good way.”

    The poetry led to an interest in acting, and in his senior year at St. Mary’s, Ali landed a featured role in the school’s production of “Funk.” From there, it was onto the California Shakespeare Festival and then the prestigious Master’s program for drama at New York University, where he appeared in numerous productions.

    In “Benjamin Button,” he plays Tizzy, the adoptive father of Pitt’s highly unusual title character. Loosely based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, it’s the saga of a New Orleans resident who ages backward and falls in love with a beautiful woman (Blanchett) who grows older as he grows younger. The film, also featuring Tilda Swinton, has garnered five Golden Globe nominations and is generating plenty of Oscar buzz.

    From the moment he read the script, Ali became entranced by its themes of romance and mortality.

    “The thing that I focused on was the sense of loss. It really affected me,” he says. “The story emphasizes the transitory nature of the relationships we have with people and how important it is to cherish those relationships when you have them. It made me look at life and appreciate it in a way that I hadn’t necessarily done before.”

    Although Ali had several scenes with the title character, he never actually interacted with Pitt. That’s because director David Fincher relied on cutting-edge special effects to graft Pitt’s face onto the bodies of smaller actors in order to portray Button as an elderly “boy.” Thus, Ali found himself spouting dialogue at a little person with a blue hood over his head.

    “It was a trip,” he says.

    Still, Ali was able to rub shoulders with his famous cast mates during script readings and makeup tests (“I’m not the kind to get star-struck, but it was kind of an out-of-body experience.”). And he got a little taste of the tabloid frenzy that accompanies Pitt and his partner Angelina Jolie wherever they go.

    “From the moment I arrived at the hotel in New Orleans, I knew I was on a different playing field. Paparazzi was staked out all over the place. It was a wild scene,” recalls Ali, who said Jolie showed up with the kids a couple of times during the shoot.

    He envisions a day when he might command, if not the full brunt, at least a portion of that type of attention — which brings us back to that name. It was bestowed upon him by a mother who is an ordained minister. To his understanding, the name means “hasten to the spoils/speedy is the prey,”

    Brad Pitt’s laid-back ’tude on the set of “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” rubbed off on the rest of the cast. “He was so cool and collected when he walked in his first day,” Pitt’s co-star Elias Koteas told us at Moet’s party at Mr. West last week. The duo previously worked together in 1992 on “a short film called ‘Contact.’ [Brad] played an American soldier and I played an Iraqi soldier. But I knew at that time that he had a future,” Koteas smiled.

    FIRST LOOK: ‘Curious’ focuses on its love story
    From old to young: Tale of title character’s mesmerizing journey also paean to New Orleans.

    By Rodney Ho

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Monday, December 22, 2008

    Through such things as Botox, plastic surgery and obsessive exercise, people are always fighting the ravages of age.

    So what happens when things go in reverse?

    That’s the crux of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” starring Brad Pitt, a loose adaptation of an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story that is already getting plenty of raves and award nominations from critics.

    Here are some notable points from the film:

    > It lasts more than two hours and 30 minutes, covering about 85 years, from the end of World War I until Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

    > The sweep of the film evokes a bit of “Forrest Gump,” which shouldn’t be a surprise since the films share the same screenwriter, Eric Roth. But “Curious” isn’t quite as interested in placing Pitt’s character, Benjamin Button, at points in history. The focus is on the love story between Button and ballerina Daisy Fuller (played as an adult by Cate Blanchett).

    > There’s a flashback construct similar to that of “Titanic,” with a gravely ill Daisy in a New Orleans hospital while her daughter reads from Benjamin’s diary. Katrina looms.

    > In the early scenes, when Pitt is very young but looks very, very old, the filmmakers rely on oodles of CGI tricks to insert Pitt’s head onto tiny stunt double bodies.

    > It’s mesmerizing to watch Button age backward as his hair grows thick and dark, lines smooth out and age spots disappear.

    > Don’t expect a lot of histrionics. Pitt and Blanchett play their characters with elegant cool and grace.

    > Listen for a plethora of heard-it-before commentary about the passage of time. A sampling: “We will all end up in diapers.” “Nothing lasts.” “In the end, you have to let go.”

    > This film is also a love letter to New Orleans, with the cameras capturing the warmth, earthy colors and mystical romanticism of the storied city.

    > Watch for Atlanta actress Edith Ivey, who plays a modest but crucial role as Button’s sweet piano teacher at the senior citizens’ home he grows up in.

    > In this fictional world, nobody finds Button’s very unusual situation all that unusual. Rather, it’s accepted. In the real world, he would have been a media supercuriosity, scrutinized to the nth degree by scientists, especially near the end of his life as he got ever younger.

    But alas, that’s why this is a fairy tale.

    PT, i have question through memory line. what was your first reaction, when Brad and Angie started their relationship? Do you remember? What you thought about them, it’s for real or just sex?
    -
    ++++++++++++++++
    -
    Frankly I didn’t care if it was just about sex. I was just happy to see Brad get the hell away from that cavernous sinkhole of a b3tch he’d stupidly married. The fact that he was getting horizontal with the sexiest woman alive was an added bonus. In my book, just about any woman but Paris Hilton was trading up…
    -
    On the flip side, as an Angie fan, too, I was glad to see her find a man who might not just be looking for a booty call – because I’d already read that Brad had gotten close to Maddox when they were shooting M&MS. She’s already said that she would never drag lovers in-and-out of Mad’s life so I figured it was pretty serious when I saw the Kenya beach photos. Besides, at this point I think everyone on the planet knew how badly Brad wanted kids, so I figured good for them…even better if it makes X pull out her much vaunted hair by their black roots…

    I have been lurking for most of the day/night, but had to respond to your post. A couple days ago, I visited popsugar for the first time in months, and remembered why i stopped going there. They had a post about “the fraud”, and was going on about what an incredible year she has had, and I’m like WTH are they talking about? Other than the PR “romance” with peeboy, and the susequent public break-up and make-up, what else did she do? That is why she is still getting some notice, because in addition to using Brad and Angie for relevancy, you have these blogs who are run by women, who continue to prop her up. There is a blog “wwtdd.com” which is run by a man, and he hates her with a passion, and continuosly call her on her phoniness.
    -
    By the way, did she do an interview with The Today Show, seeing that it is Jolie-Pitt Central?.

    LOL…that chick over at PopSugar is all up in X’s ass. She’s a Rachelite. I bet she even had the haircut.

    BTW – No, X didn’t do the Today Show. She did the CBS early morning show, whatever the hell it’s called. They’re #3 in the ratings…says all you need to know about X’s movie career. She couldn’t even get a slot on the Today show, and NBC show, to pimp her dog flick.

The star repeatedly tried buying the complete works of Hungarian cult director Bela Tarr from a small DVD store in Budapest as a Christmas present for Angelina Jolie, but whenever he called the place, they thought it was a joke and hung up on him. “He tried several times on the phone but had to give up. They just didn’t believe him,” an aide to Pitt tells Britain’s Daily Mail. Finally, he got a friend in the city, opera singer Laszlo Domahidy, to buy the collection for him.

The way that Jolie has treated people (JA included) in her life offers resounding evidence that her “causes” are really efforts at self-promotion and attempts to deflect from her misanthropic actions. Her fans and Jolie say that she does not feel she should apologize to anyone. Is that supposed to be a virtue? The fact that she does not feel the need to atone or apologize speaks volumes about the severity and chronicity of her psychopathology. Angelina Jolie’s behavior is, and always has been, completely incongruent with her espoused values and principles. Character is not a photo-op, taking short sojourns to impoverished places, or serially adopting children. Character is what you do when no one is looking, no matter how you attempt to spin or undo it after the fact.

    In Pitt’s ‘Case,’ a reminder of talent

    By Lee Grant 12:02 a.m. December 22, 2008
    MOVIE REVIEW
    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
    Rating: PG-13
    When: Opens Thursday
    Running time: 2 hr., 47 min.
    3 1/2 stars

    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is a long movie based on a short story.

    Like a fine piece of literature (the film is taken from a piece by F. Scott Fitzgerald), it needs time to tell the tale spanning a lifetime, get at the lessons and morals, develop the rich characters.

    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” has been kicking around Hollywood for years with directors unsure how to make the reverse aging process work. With contemporary technology and state-of-the art makeup, director David Fincher fashioned a triumph of not just effects but storytelling.

    The screenplay was written by Eric Roth, who won an Oscar for adapting “Forrest Gump.” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is like a box of chocolates. Hanging in there for nearly three hours, you never know what you’re going to get.

    At that length, the film dips occasionally, but the characters are so full that it’s just a matter of time until you’re swept into the lives again.

    Brad Pitt, who celebrated his 45th birthday last week, has become better with age. It’s no longer about his movie-star glamour. As demonstrated in “Babel” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” and now, with this challenging role, it’s plain there’s a depth of talent still to explore.

    Fincher, who guided him in “Seven” (1995) and “Fight Club” (1999), garners a performance that’s real and touching, taking a character, in this case, grave to cradle. They’re a perfect match.

    It’s clear how Fincher, Pitt and Blanchett felt about the curious and accomplished “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”

    No, not homeless at all. She would just be Patricia Heaton…or, heh – Courtney Cox, but nearly as pretty.

    Apparently you missed the part a couple weeks ago where she drank a whole pitcher of Kool-Aid, and she did it in front of the whole world and at the foot of her wet nurse Oprah. Didn’t you hear fan of man, according to the TV sit-com hack, ‘Brad is an amazing admirable man that she’s proud of.’
    .
    I never have bought Jolie’s faux-humanitarian routine. She looks to be collecting kids the way she used to collect knives and tattoos.
    .
    Well, I don’t think YOU need to buy into it, when the UN, Council on Foreign Relations, Brad Pitt, her kids, her family and friends that love her, and Time-Newsweek who has voted her ‘The Most Influential Philanthropist,’ back-to-back-to-back, HAVE.
    .
    The way that Jolie has treated people (JA included) in her life offers resounding evidence that her “causes” are really efforts at self-promotion and attempts to deflect from her misanthropic actions.
    .
    See above. Oh, and I’ll be waiting right here for you to tell me how Brad gets to be the one who is ‘amazing, admirable and makes her so proud,’ and Angelina, who she has never met and does not know, does not. Methinks someone is full of sh*t, and not just the kind that comes directly due to John Gayer’s fetishes.
    .
    Her fans and Jolie say that she does not feel she should apologize to anyone. Is that supposed to be a virtue? The fact that she does not feel the need to atone or apologize speaks volumes about the severity and chronicity of her psychopathology. Angelina Jolie’s behavior is, and always has been, completely incongruent with her espoused values and principles.
    .
    Um, would YOU apologize to someone when YOU have done nothing wrong. …and actually Jolie’s behavior is consistent with who and what she’s always been, UNFLINCHINGLY HONEST. Everyone in her industry, family and those that count, know this to be so – which is why Aniston gets no love in Hollywood and can’t get Pumas: The story of her aging twa.t made – or the prison cowgirl flick. They know when someone else is being dumped on and unjustly used for the betterment of some TV hack’s career aspirations. They are rewarding Maniston and her PR queen (that she shares a fake boyfriend with), with their just due – i.e., being 3rd bananas in dog movies, and by not distributing her crapola rom-coms, just sending them straight to DVD..but guess what? Blockbuster doesn’t want that sh*t either.
    .
    Character is not a photo-op, taking short sojourns to impoverished places, or serially adopting children. Character is what you do when no one is looking, no matter how you attempt to spin or undo it after the fact.
    .
    Excellent point! So tell Maniston to start walking the walk, instead of trying to guest host nationally televised cancer telethons with 1500 other celebrities, riding Oprah’s charity game show coattails or molesting the St Jude’s kids once a year when she needs to promote some schlocky movie – TELL HER to get her hands dirty and be GENUINE about it – lobby legislators, talk to politicians, sponsor bills, establish foundations that directly save lives and educate children worldwide, pass bills, do the field work…then maybe one day – instead of being bested by the NBA and the 200 other celebs who work for Judes, and want to end cancer (DUH!) she’ll be looked at as more an authentic person who actually cares, INSTEAD of the selfish self absorbed narcissistic eternally tanned & highlighted beachblanket ugly bimbo TV sit-com hack who is just frontin’ so she won’t pale in comparison…not to Jolie, but almost everyone ELSE in Hollywood who does more to help people than Aniston does: YES. That would be all of them. LOL

    How often do you talk? I ask. “We have exchanged a few very kind hellos and wishing you wells and sending you love and congratulations on your babies. I have nothing but absolute admiration for him, and…I’m proud of him! I think he’s really done some amazing things.”
    -
    I ask her if she can remember exactly when the post-divorce acrimony receded. “You mean, when were Brad and I healed?” she says.

    Yes, I say.

    “Well, it never was that bad,” she says, knowing that it will be hard for a lot of people to believe. “I mean, look, it’s not like divorce is something that you go, ‘Oooh, I can’t wait to get divorced!’ It doesn’t feel like a tickle. But I’ve got to tell you, it’s so vague at this point, it’s so faraway in my mind, I can’t even remember the darkness.I mean, in the end, we really had an amicable split. It wasn’t mean and hateful and all of this stuff that they tried to create about Brad can’t talk to Jen and Jen can’t talk to Brad because this person won’t allow it. It just didn’t happen. The marriage didn’t work out. And pretty soon after we separated, we got on the phone and we had a long, long conversation with each other and said a lot of things, and ever since we’ve been unbelievably warm and respectful of each other. Whoever said everything has to be forever, that’s setting your hopes too high. It’s too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself—because I did! Fairy tale! It has to be the right one!—that’s unattainable.”

    This is Maniston, Catherine Keener, and Mandy Ingber. Maniston is clearly more on par with Ingber, than she is Catherine – of the three women, Catherine, who no one is gonna write home about, clearly is head and shoulders above the other two in the ‘looks,’ department. The two of them make Catherine look like Angelina Jolie.

    He did her a huge favor both by marrying her and pubically humiliating her.

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

    I said it once and I’ll say it again

    There is nothing anyone can say or do to humiliate x more than x is humiliating herself right now.

    Brad publicly humiliating x?? What should Brad have done? Waited for a decent mourning period before he went for Angelina? How long does that period have to be? 3 months, 6 months? 1 year? No? Perhaps brad should retire from public life so that the paps wouldn’t trail after him?

    Or perhaps, Brad should have waited longer before he got Angelina pregnant and Angelina should have waited a respectful period before getting pregnant because of course, them getting pregnant so quickly just shows how x dragged her feet about getting pregnant (after a looooong vacation, after her movies, after friends, after the sh*t hits the fan??) LOL

    Face it. x could have avoided a lot of this humiliation if she had simply handled her divorce with more dignity like Nicole Kidman or Reese Witherspoon or even J Lo. Did you see either of these actresses acting with anything other than dignified in public?

    Now Grow UP. x reaps what she sowed. Had she maintained her dignity, she wouldn’t be suffering the public humiliation for as long as she has. I’ll repeat:

    Nothing anyone can say or do, can humiliate x as much as she humiliates herself.

    From ranting about Angelina to TWO JOURNALISTS (how stupid can x get??) whilst praising Brad, to vacillating about whether she is in a relationship with Vince or not,

    from paying that model guy paul whatever to carry his bottle of smart water to waving her legs and thrusting her bikini clad bum in the air – more than one occasion, in full view of the paps (heheheheh)

    from spreading stories about her break up with Mayer to crawling back to him after he publicly declared that he dumped her

    from posing nekkid for a family movie to stuttering on Letterman

    from holidaying in Mexico over and over again (after saying she would like to see more of the world before she has babies!!0 to getting plastic surgery sooooo obvious that every other movie critic is commenting on her cheek implants for Marley and me.

    from setting up her ex mother in law Jane Pitt in front of paps to setting up the paps for her visit to the Ivy

    and on and on it goes…..

    :roll:

    x pissed her dignity and pride into the wind so that she could hang on to her fame,, just as she lets John boy piss of her so that she can hang on to a drop kick like him (and make no mistake, he is pissing on her as he publicly declares he likes to do that).

    But we only have to look at Tom Cruise to know that there is such as thing as BAD publicity. So the more x protests and talks about how much she hates Angelina, the more she shows her desparation to hang on to her fame or her man, the more pitiful she looks. And she does it all by herself.

    As a female, I do feel sorry for her. As a woman though, I won’t blame someone else for x’s humiliation. I give her back both the power and the responsibility.

    QQQQ,

    You know why this b**ch is so disingeneous, if, as she said after the separation, Brad and her had a long talk on the phone, (by the way, she stole that line from Angie, who said that about her and BBT, :lol:), why then all the nasty snarky attacks against Brad in the upcoming months? Why the VF interview? Brad and her separated in Jan 2005, I am sure she knew about the upcoming W pictures done to coincide with the release of M&MS, so why the “missing a sensitivity chip” comment that started all of the acrimony. She is such a freaking liar, that you cant believe anything she says, and she just shows the world….at least those who are paying attention….how fcuked up she really is.

    On the flip side, as an Angie fan, too, I was glad to see her find a man who might not just be looking for a booty call – because I’d already read that Brad had gotten close to Maddox when they were shooting M&MS. She’s already said that she would never drag lovers in-and-out of Mad’s life so I figured it was pretty serious when I saw the Kenya beach photos. Besides, at this point I think everyone on the planet knew how badly Brad wanted kids, so I figured good for them…even better if it makes X pull out her much vaunted hair by their black roots…

    IDEALLY SPEAKING.

    YOU DO NOT MESS UP WITH YOUR MARRIAGE.

    THE LORD INSTITUTED MARRIAGE, WHICH IS SACRED FOR A MAN AND A WOMAN TO BE JOINED TOGETHER IN ONE FLESH, THROUGH SEX.

    “SEX IN MARRIAGE IS BED UNDEFILED”

    SO SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE IS A SIN.

    “THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH”

    SO WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO MARRY A PERSON THAT YOU LIKE?

    FIRST, LOVE G-D ABOVE ALL ELSE, IN YOUR HEART AND MIGHT YOU DO THINGS FOR YOUR LOVE TO G-D. YOU SHOULD SEARCH THE LORD G-D AS PART OF YOUR LIFE, START A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CREATOR FIRST.

    THEN DATE THAT PERSON THAT YOU LIKE THAT G-D MIGHT HAVE GIVEN YOU, TO KNOW THAT PERSON FOR MORE THAN 2 YEARS WITHOUT SEX. THE GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER STAGE IS 2 YEARS AND FOUR MONTHS WITHOUT SEX. THEN, AFTER 2 YEARS AND FOUR MONTHS OF DATING YOU BOTH DECIDE FOR THE NEXT LEVEL OF THAT RELATIONSHIP WHICH IS MARRIAGE.

    WHAT IS MARRIAGE ACCORDING TO JESUS CHRIST?

    (MARK 10: 3-12)

    “And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
    And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
    And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
    But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
    For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
    And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
    What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
    And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
    And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
    And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth ADULTERY.

    IN OTHER VERSES, JESUS ADDED THAT ANY SINGLE PERSON WHO IS SEXUALLY INVOLVED WITH A MARRIED PERSON IS COMMITING ADULTERY.

    BASE ON THE BIBLE TEXT ABOVE YOU CAN ONLY GET MARRIED AGAIN WHEN YOUR SPOUSE IS DEAD,
    YOU CAN REMARRY WHEN YOU ARE A WIDOWER OR A WIDOW.

    QQQQ @ 12/22/2008 at 10:48 am Please tell exactly what has Brad done to this b*tch. Her words Dec Vogue 2008 – How often do you talk? I ask. “We have exchanged a few very kind hellos and wishing you wells and sending you love and congratulations on your babies. I have nothing but absolute admiration for him, and…I’m proud of him! I think he’s really done some amazing things.”
    -
    I ask her if she can remember exactly when the post-divorce acrimony receded. “You mean, when were Brad and I healed?” she says.
    -
    Yes, I say.
    -
    “Well, it never was that bad,” she says, knowing that it will be hard for a lot of people to believe.
    -
    Along with being a liar, she a very dumb b*tch. The fact that she says ‘Brad and I,’ had to “HEAL.” Says it was bad. Also, her closest friend, Kristen Hahn in that VF piece, described ‘what she was going through,’ as “a root canal without anesthesia.” I think most of us, know exactly what that would FEEL like, which is precisely why her good pal used that kind of language – at that juncture, she wanted the world’s sympathy, you certainly would FEEL for someone experiencing a root canal without anesthesia – it would be incredibly horrific….yet NOW it’s “not that bad?” It never ceases to amaze me, how these interviewers let her get away with this sh*t.
    .
    “I mean, look, it’s not like divorce is something that you go, ‘Oooh, I can’t wait to get divorced!’
    .
    Heh-heh. I think Brad did honey. LOL :lol:
    .
    “It doesn’t feel like a tickle. ”
    .
    No, it actually feels more like a ‘root canal without anesthesia,’ which is incredibly painful – that’s how you and pals described it, so comparing it to ‘not like a tickle,’ NOW, is all kinds of disingenuous.
    .
    But I’ve got to tell you, it’s so vague at this point, it’s so faraway in my mind, I can’t even remember the darkness.I mean, in the end, we really had an amicable split.
    .
    Yeah, it’s “100 years ago,” except when you are rushing right out to buy Angelina’s Vogue – sitting, stewing and marinating about it in the TWO YEARS SINCE, so that you can blast her on Oprah about it TWO YEARS LATER & reference a violent two yr old comic that infers you want to shoot her! Sounds “amicable,” to me – heh. Also dummy, actually calling something “the darkness,” and saying it was “amicable,” in the end – is just one more way of squirming out of discussing that typical grudge-holding, silent treatment she does and trying to explain away just why she decided to try Brad & Angelina in the court of public opinion, and rally the mini-van troops.
    .
    It wasn’t mean and hateful and all of this stuff that they tried to create about Brad can’t talk to Jen and Jen can’t talk to Brad because this person won’t allow it. It just didn’t happen.
    .
    They? Whose they? Oh, “they,” as in all of the tabloids you CLAIM not to read. Why would she reference them, when there’s plenty of empirical evidence to show that it was SHE who had the acrimonious relationship, it wasn’t a figment of the tabloids…they just used HER very well-established BITTERNESS to create weekly tasty morsels. You can’t even blame them, given the massive gift they got from her…that no one appears to want to hold her feet to the fire about.
    .
    I found that hilarious, that of all the tabloid lies and bullsh*t they printed – she references the rare story about Angelina being upset about their supposed communication – which doesn’t happen with the frequency she tried initially to create. Why not say, ‘All those tabloid stories about how I HATE BRAD, and BRAD HATES ME, and ANGELINA HATES ME and I HATE ANGELINA, were a crock of sh*t!!’ Of COURSE she couldn’t say THAT, as then the jig is up. No more acrimony. Best thing to do, to extend the career, is praise Brad and continue the snark and inferred dislike of Angelina. If everyone’s happy, and admiring of each other – no more press for maniston. The kicker for me, was when she says, “this person,” is saying she can’t talk to Brad — hahaha…the old grudgemeister, employing the ‘she who will not be named,’ tactic with Angie, that she just finished using this year with Brad. LOL What a tool.
    .
    The marriage didn’t work out. And pretty soon after we separated, we got on the phone and we had a long, long conversation with each other and said a lot of things, and ever since we’ve been unbelievably warm and respectful of each other.
    .
    Notice she says ‘pretty soon after we separated,’ which would have been BEFORE the Sept ’05 Vanity Fair ‘Tell All.’ That b*tch was TOAST to Brad after that. LOL
    .
    Whoever said everything has to be forever, that’s setting your hopes too high. It’s too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself—because I did!.”
    .
    OMG She’s disputing what Brad said while married to her- he said that they did NOT put happily-ever-after pressure on themselves. she’s SUCH a LIAR.

    My bad, a couple dozen would be more like it. :lol:

    A reviewer recently described her body as “pert and toned”, and that I agree with. What else does she have to do except work on her body all day, every day? But saying as Lainey does that her body is “crazy”, implying that it is so good, is ridiculous. Giselle, Heidi and even Angie with those long legs, and small waist, they have great bodies. Certainly not this fraud. Have I said today yet how much I despise her ?

    Let’s see how much comfort her body will give her in her later years, because it is not going to look like that forever.

    ” We each answer to God” for our choices ( Neither Jesus nor His Apostles ever instituted “divorce” processes or “authorities” for Christians regarding divorce or any other matter – See Matthew 23:8-11 – We are all servants of Christ under the New Covenant which is a “covenant of personal freedom” under Jesus Christ).
    Neither Jesus nor His Apostles set-up “divorce professionals” within the Christian community.
    Activating the divorce right was at that time a “personal” choice to be based on the “immoral abuse” of our God-given” human rights” within Christian morality as taught by Jesus Christ and remains so under the New Covenant.
    When Jesus chose the word He used regarding the question of divorce rights He was not limiting our “human rights” within marriage to sexual faithfulness alone:
    Matthew 19:9 “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
    The Holy Spirit spoke through the Apostles.
    The Apostle Paul shows he understood the teachings of Jesus on the “right to divorce” for just-cause and affirmed that there is a right to have an “expectation for personal peace” and moral living within marriage (along with every other human right being provided).
    These”human rights come from God” and “these rights remain” within all spheres of our lives, including within marriage.

    Brad Pitt might double his anticipation on Oscar night next February. Pitt has an opportunity to score two nominations. He’s already had some great buzz and decent reviews for his dim-witted fitness instructor in the Coen brothers farce Burn After Reading released last September. And pre-release previews have suggested his title character in the fantasy The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (opening on Christmas Day) just might get some Academy Award love, too.

    With Angelina Jolie and their brood of six, Pitt and family seem to be making headlines wherever they go. But the former sexiest man alive might be making news for a different reason when the Academy nods are handed out on Jan. 25 in preparation for the Oscar soiree on Feb. 22

    In the David Fincher film based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, Pitt portrays a man who ages backwards at the turn of the 20th century. Playing his love interest is Cate Blanchett –an actress who knows all about that double Oscar nomination thing.

    Last spring, Blanchett became the 11th performer ever to pick up two Oscar nominations in the same year; one in the supporting actress category for her enigmatic Bob Dylan definition in I’m Not There and a best actress nod for Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

    *****Coincidence or not, Pitt’s been choosing some challenging roles since hooking up with Jolie. There was Babel –again with Blanchett –and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which he starred in and produced. Pitt’s one and only Oscar nomination arrived with Twelve Monkeys in 1995.*****

    “Well, I just want to work with people that I like and respect,” says Pitt, who turned 45 on Dec. 18. “The different elements of anything I try just add to the many flavours that I see in a film.”

    Still, his family comes first. And that has changed Pitt’s focus from being an international star to his duties as a dad. “I don’t feel defined by the work in any way now, and I feel free because of it,” he maintains.

    “Actually,” he adds, “the family has freed me to just follow what’s interesting to me.”

    Saddled out of the gate as the presumptive winner of this year’s Oscar for Best Picture, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is top-heavy with expectations. The nearly three-hour film is expanded from a very short story by literary god F. Scott Fitzgerald. Script duties fell to Eric Roth, who crafted the Academy-lauded life odyssey of Forrest Gump, which Ben Button structurally resembles. Gump had Tom Hanks as the title character, and Button has Brad Pitt. Believe me, Pitt has the more daunting task. He plays Ben from infanthood, a baby born with the wizened, room-clearing face of a man in his 80s. How’d they do that? Digital face painting, baby, which means slapping Pitt’s computer-aged mug on tiny bodies as Ben ages backward till he reaches full growth. Digital kicks in again when Pitt, 44, has to look way younger.

    “Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.” What Button shows is that Ben is ultimately not the hero of his own life or his own movie. He gets inside our head, that’s for sure, but, frustratingly, we never get inside his.

    P.S.: The Academy won’t mind a bit.

    Our Endless Numbered Days

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button turns away hopeful from a long, unflinching look at reality. Oh, and it’s one of the best movies of the year.
    By David Sessions

    The existential issues in Benjamin Button are nothing more than a natural outgrowth of the story—they don’t get repeated ad nauseum and morphed into didactic “themes.” It’s that restraint that makes this movie so much better than its competitors in the current Oscar race. And its adept storytelling—never once veering into sentimentality or romanticism—is what makes it so much better than the expensively produced dramas that enjoy box-office success the rest of the year. Fincher is right to insist that Benjamin Button isn’t his “romantic” movie. It’s nothing of the kind. It’s a movie about death that turns away hopeful from a long, unflinching look at reality. And we all know how much we could use some of that right now.

    I just finished Peter Travers’ review and thought the same thing. I think a lot of critics are missing the point. They want BB to see bleed on screen (emotionally) and that’s NOT what the film makers were going for at all. Would they really want to sit through a 3 hour movie of someone complaining about their fate? I sure as hell don’t. I can do that my damned self. Hell, haven’t we just been talking about having to put up with 4 years of X’s whining? I’m not going to pay money to see a movie where the hero spends the entire movie whining about his looks. They didn’t even do that in The Elephant Man!

    I wonder how Fincher felt about Brad doing ‘cheese,’ literally by even BEING with the TV sit-com hack. lol
    .
    Oh, and by the way – about the Golden Globe thing with Cruise. Don’t you find it interesting that they’ve already announced via reps/press releases or whatever that Katie won’t be going with Tom – I have a feeling Tom is purposely faking people out regarding this whole thing, then at the 11th hour he’ll ‘surprise,’ with Katie showing up. It just seems like it’s all being done to garner some interest/drama around his (their?) appearance. For Tom, even though he likes Brad, he’s always been competitive with him in a major way – so to get shown up in a big big BIG way by Brad & Angelina would kinda sting. Breathlessly announcing that, ‘Yes, OMG Katie WAS able to get released to come with Tommy C.!!’ I can smell the shenanigans already. If I didn’t think it before, Fox’s Friedman MUST be bribe-able to the powers that be behind Cruise – as with that asinine quote that Cruise is a bigger get than ‘Brangelina,’ I have a feeling something is a foot, and he’s helping out with the plotting. That will be how Cruise works up some excitement for his appearance – making people wonder if lame-o Katie will show.
    .
    Remember when Katie was pregnant, and like NO ONE cared. Then she gave birth and like, NO ONE cared. So what did Tommy boy do?? He hid Suri away for such a good long time, people started suspecting her of being Klaatu and/or wondering if she was the spitting image of L.Ron Hubbard..what’s wrong with her?!! Everyone wondered! ..and he hid her away, and hid her way…for months and months – until (((BAM!!!))) 12 page GLOSSY in Vanity Fair!! LOL Suri appeared on the scene not as new born infant, but an older cutie who looked definitively not too much like Tom. Speculation once again started anew. Then began the Suri fashion marches in her $400-$1000 shoes and duds. Day in and day out – what better way to have Suri get more face time than other celeb babies — a daily fashion show as Mom walks to work. lolol Mission Accomplished. It stook a lot of planning, but Suri is the most high profile, photographed tot ever. She may not have been the first Madame Tussaud’s wax replica baby as Shiloh JP was, but she might be there 2nd toddler…I’m sure Tom’s working that angle now.
    .
    Tom knows he can’t bring the date that would garner the real excitement, Suri — but he can play a few, ‘Will she or won’t she?’ tricks with the press about Katie.

    Looking forward to seeing Benjamin Button this Christmas

    5 stars
    Rating: * * * * *

    Verdict: It takes some patience, but the end result is intensely satisfying.

    This is a curious film indeed. Director David Fincher’s (Zodiac, Fight Club) adaptation of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, originally a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is a beautiful but unusual and rambling tale.

    The twist in this fantasy coming-of-age story is that Brad Pitt’s character Benjamin Button is born physically resembling an old man and lives his life backwards, growing younger instead of older.

    A lyrical fairytale, Fincher allows himself almost three hours to let the story unfold in its own good time.

    The reward, if you’re patient enough, is a melancholic, subtle and unexpectedly captivating dissertation on life, love and death.

    Born in New Orleans, Benjamin’s mother dies giving birth to him on the night the Great War ends.

    His father, distressed by his son’s grotesque appearance, abandons him the the stairs of a rest home – ironically, the perfect place for a baby born as an 80-year-old man.

    Unofficially adopted by Queenie (Henson), an attendant in the rest home, Benjamin’s childhood is challenging and lonely, but he survives crippling arthritis and other elderly afflictions to take us on the extradinaory adventure that is his life, viewed from the point of view of a man who knows how and when it will end.

    *****Brad Pitt reminds us he can do much more than look pretty, and puts in a restrained and moving performance.*****

    He’s joined by a stellar cast, including Tilda Swinton as Benjamin’s first love Elizabeth Abbott, the extraordinarily graceful Cate Blanchett as his soulmate, a ballerina named Daisy, and Taraji P. Henson as the delightful Queenie, who injects much appreciated humour into what is a sombre affair.

    Though all these performances are worthy of mention, it’s the makeup and special effects crew who have truly enabled Fincher to pull off this visually tricky story.

    The makeup on Blanchett and Pitt will leave you wondering whether it’s truly them beneath their aged looks, and the CGI effects rendering Pitt as a 7-year-old boy in the body of a 70-year-old is remarkable.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is not perfect, but this mature and intelligent work from Fincher gets under your skin. The story reels you in slowly and while it takes time to relax into Fincher’s gentle pace and unnecessary segueways, there is something pleasurable about wallowing in this beautifully shot, cleverly designed, and leisurely paced film.

    The outcome may be inevitable from the start, but the emotional punch it delivers captures you by surprise, confirming that this eclectic and overly long journey was worth the watch.

    This project is, in a way, a curious choice for director David Fincher, whose films tend to be extravagantly dark and downbeat (Zodiac, Seven, Fight Club, Panic Room, Alien 3). In contrast, this sprawling fable, brave enough to teeter on the edge of ridiculousness without ever falling in and to include several literary flourishes, is still ultimately about mortality and aging and death.

    Fincher does a splendid job with visual perspective, altering it so that we eventually take Benjamin’s gimmicky reverse-aging process for granted. Mostly, though, the film makes us aware of time going by, in one direction or the other. And perhaps sometimes it seems to stand still, which can be good or bad. But just when you think it might start to drag, the remarkable Cate Blanchett shows up and the film levitates.

    Pitt and Blanchett, who co-starred in Babel, have an easy chemistry. Their love affair is certainly crucial, but is not as prominent as you might think. While Blanchett shines, however, the feeling persists that a more aggressive, skilled actor might have done more with the central character than does Pitt, who is certainly at least adequate. As for Henson, in the film’s best turn, she gives yet another electrifying performance as Benjamin’s adoptive mother, an inner light seeming to make her every screen moment shine.

    But it is the moments of magical realism and emotionally haunting imagery that gives Fincher’s film its kick. And it is Fitzgerald’s central conceit — of examining a life lived backward, thus affording us a fresh look at the way time works on us — that remains as the film’s arresting metaphoric backbone.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is more than just curious. It’s also bittersweet, tender, earnest, melancholic, and atmospheric. If it’s not on the button, it’s close.

    Congrats to Benjamin Button. Congrats to BP and AJ for being nominated.

    The Houston Film Critics Society has named The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as the best motion picture of 2008 but split its awards list among 10 films in 14 categories.

    The group of 18 critics that review movies for newspapers, broadcast outlets and Internet sites serving the Houston market, presented its second annual awards Saturday at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Brown Auditorium Theater.

    Benjamin Button, adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story, was nominated in eight of the 14 categories for 2008 but was limited to best picture and to best cinematography for Claudio Miranda.

    Three other films won two awards from the society. Viola Davis was named best supporting actress for Doubt, based on the Tony Award-winning play by John Patrick Shanley about issues of child molestation and racial integration at a 1960s Catholic school. The film also won best ensemble cast.

    Other best actor nominees were Brad Pitt (Benjamin Button), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Revolutionary Road).

    Also nominated for best actress were Cate Blanchett (Benjamin Button), Angelina Jolie (The Changeling), Melissa Leo (Frozen River), Meryl Streep (Doubt) and Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road).

    “We believe the awards distribution will be all over the place this year. There are many great films, but none have the true brilliance of past years,” said Nick Nicholson, president of the society

    Nicholson said the group attempts to honor achievements in a broader range of categories than most local film societies and was formed to promote critical film discussion rather than general entertainment and personality news reports.

    Membership is limited to applicants who review films for newspapers with a circulation of more than 7,500, who deliver regularly scheduled reviews on public or commercial TV or radio stations and Internet writers whose sites attract at least 5,000 unique viewers per month. Applicants are subject to approval by 75 percent of current members.

    I was watching the movie “Love Actually”, and one of the male characters says (to impress a female):

    Him: Years ago, I was the stand-in for Brad Pitt in “Seven Years in Tibet”.

    Her: Oh wow.

    OMG, I just watched X on The View and she’s not making sense again. I loved Joy Behar when she asked something like this, “You often said you’re an overthinker…overachiever…, what do you mean by that, overthinker?” X didn’t expect this difficult question from Joy. She stuttered and answered that “I just think.” Can you believe that!

    Elizabeth also mentioned that X is nearing 40 in Feb and Whoopi was amused or laughing. X reaction was priceless, trying to keep her composure but it was very obvious she didn’t want that mentioned.

    Barbara also kept on showing her GQ naked cover but X was kind of embarassed, she put it down on the sofa.

    I didn’t see anything wrong with her show on the View. She could hardly get a word in edgewise. Whoopi laughed and said something about still being “just a baby” (referring to being 39).

    “It’s a tragedy in the sense that any love involves loss, and that’s the risk you take,” BradPitt responds. “And the greater the love, the greater the loss. I certainly feel that now with the woman I’m with, and the children that I have. But whatever the course may be, this time together is extraordinary.”

    “I had a whole other life and I got to experience a lot. And I probably got away with more than I should,” he says. “And it kind of ran its course, you know, it kind of hit a dead end.” Fatherhood, he notes, is “the direction I always thought I would go in. But not until, with Angie and it felt like a natural evolution, a natural direction.”

    ==

    Reading Brad’s “thoughts” about life, I really think that he regretted the years he WASTED the kind of life he had with his former wife. He felt UNPRODUCTIVE both personally and professionally. There was no meaning in his life then. He felt emptiness despite the material wealth, fame & glamour that Hollywood offers.

    At least for him, he felt very RELIEVED to realize and to get back his “life” and start anew. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER (on putting that “wastefulness” to a halt)! Enough is enough!!! It was very good for him to really know what he wanted in life and WENT AFTER IT, AGAINST ALL ODDS & INTRIGUES.

    What’s interesting about it, during the time of his INITIAL realization, it was the time he also met Angie who herself was in the process of doing something to fulfill her purpose in life, who already knew her desires, who already knew what is important to her, for Mad & her advocacy. The timing was just perfect for both Angie & Brad. As I’ve always believed, they were not looking for love but LOVE MADE IT HAPPEN. It was love which found them. Besides, I really think they are soulmates, they are made & meant for each other!

    What he really feels, now that he’s with Angie and the kids, HIS HAPPINESS IS UNSURPASSED that he has ever experienced.

    He really feels that the LOVE he has for Angie & kids and the LOVE he receives from them is INCOMPARABLE to any other relationships he got involved with.

    And what’s nice about his family with Angie, is they always make sure from time to time they get together with Angie’s brother, Brad’s parents, grandmother, brothers/sister, nephews, nieces. They visit their places too. They see to it that their extended families are still part of their own family.

    Now, Brad can look back on his life and can only breathe a sigh of relief but never go back to that “wastefulness” ever again!

    He can put a smile on his face now and CHERISH THE IDEA OF FOREVER with his family. I am sure, he will make that happen!!!
