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!!!

    Congratulations my favorite actor and wonderful father!

    Brazil love you

  • anonymous

    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.

    Happy birthday Brad!!! And may I say, I believe “time and gravity” will be kind to you–after all you are Brad Pitt:) Great things for a great person. I cannot wait to see CCBB. To me you are one of the great actors of my time. Thank you for bringing a little more excitement into my life. Bless you–and your family–today and always.

    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 asshole in this case.

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

    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.

    Happy Birthday Papa Pitt!!!! Congrats to BP and the entire cast of Benjamin Button for all the accolades and critical acclaim. Thanks for the excellent word on Benjamin Button Just Jared Sr. I am looking forward to seeing it and will be there this Christmas Holiday. BP is getting better with age, personally and professionally. He is a devoted Partner to the beautiful Jolie and the Father of 6 adorable children. It is all good.

    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.

    Joyeux anniversaire Brad! :)
    And what did he get as a present, he’s SAGging! And so is Angie! Unlike the rest of us though, in the greatest way! :) Congratulations to the so-beautiful-it’s-unfair couple on their SAG award nominations! :D Very well deserved for two great actors.

    Happy 45th birthday to Brad! :)

    As always I wish Brad and Angie and their wonderful big family health, happiness, many, many more success that the God has to offer. I can only dream to find the kind of person that will love me fully for who I am with my flaws and all just as Brad loves Angie and Angie loves Brad. It is true that true love conquers all, and when you help other wholeheartedly you will be blessed. I wish Brad many, many and many more birthdays to come with each one being more wonderful than the previous. I hope they continue to grow in their love of each other and their family and can withstand the test of time. God Bless them and all of you (their fans) too.

    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.

    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.
