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!

    So am I G. I am so glad that both of them got nominated and which I think was well deserved. I am glad that you are doing well.

    I am fine, just busy at work and home and getting ready for the holiday and another year

    I hope it’s not Brad’s dad.

    But then again, this is OK giving ‘details’ so…

  • piper, with a low

    That sounded terrible.

    What I meant to say is, whomever is ailing, I hope that he or she will be okay.

  • irma

    I hope it’s just a rumor from the tabloid. God keep on watching over the Jolie-Pitt’s family.

  • Helen

    Gosh I am praying that it is just a rumor and everyone is healthy and well at home, celebrating daddy’s birthday with mommy, aunts and uncles and nieces and nephews and of course, the 6 children.

    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.

    Bitter hens on board. The dlisters and female first rabid hens should join forces and form a club, “bitter rejected losers unite”. Whiny X can be their mascot.

    Such a club already exists – The Jennifer Aniston Fan Club. The club crest is decorated with a blow dryer, a pot of hot wax and a d o u c h e bag.

    Ambulance Not Called to Brad Pitt’s House
    Posted Dec 18th 2008 9:14PM by TMZ Staff
    .
    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.

  • zen2

    I don’t know nothing about the rumour of 911 from JOLIE-PITTS house but…
    GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS.
    GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS.
    GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS.

  • Helen

    Angie (at least) is a lock for the nomination. She won the Satellite and all lead drama actresses that win it, are a lock at the OSCARS. Don’t worry, Angie won’t be snubbed.

  • CLINIQUA

    Phewww!! In this instance I hope tmz has their sh*t straight.

    Hmmm it just goes to show that rag trolls, pap trolls, hens, paid trolls and assorted nutjobs reside on Just Jared. It is never a day when there are not smears, spins, lies and outright nasty comments all geared towards rag stories and blog hits. BP and AJ sells.

    TedC who is really Bruce Bibby from Highland Park Texas

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

    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?

    Wow!!! We should all be so fortunate to live to 100. That is amazing. I hope the gentleman will be okay.

    I expect this will be one of Brad’s most memorable b-days ever. He hasn’t ever celebrated one with six kids in tow. If it’s a zoo there on a normal day, can you imagine with him being away and then the party they are all psyched up for……….simultaneous madness.

    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.

    I’m sure she is p*ssed. She called up the circle HAGS this morning after GMA and scream at the ocean via phone. I’ve done everything for almost 2 months and still they both get nominations. It just not fair!

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

    ROTFLMAO. X should console herself with the fact that the dog flick has 2 middling reviews at Rotten Tomatoes. 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…

  • guli

    Clini–oops …I was just talking about the 911 call… I responded ((hugs and kisses))

    Thank God everyone is fine in the JP household. My prayers are for the JP’s neighbor and their family!

    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.

  • alexanderina

    adding to my last post, the film critic, Sean gave CCOBB 5 out of 5 Stars pretty amazing

  • missy

    Happy bday day Brady Daddy!

    With all these noms & awards nights, we, fans will have a Pitt po*n regularly! lol
    Can’t wait!

  • Trace

    Oh great – I was really hoping Marley and Me would bomb and that would be the end of X’s movie career. But, if it does well, that means X will have another shot, and we still won’t hear the last of her.

    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.

    Wow, Elle Fanning was in this one too. Such a young girl to have already been in two films of Brad’s. Brad probably thinks everyday has been a birthday for him. Either that or Christmas. He’s not undeserving, the lucky guy. Happy birthday, Brad! You’re living the dream!

  • hmm

    Notice when someone posted the “wrong news” on the paramedics, Ashley Banks disappear.

    I guess Ashley must be on the phone giving this info to the tabloids, and discussing how to spin it into lies.

    Seeing the 911 post scared the heck out of me. So glad it ended up not involving the JPs. Hope the elderly gentleman is okay.
