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!!!

    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…
    GL, in last couple of month she did – Vogue, Oprah, NYTMag, EWeekly, USA Today cover, GQ, Letterman, Regies&Kelly for promotion dog movie in which she plays “secon banana” part. Looks like last chance for her. :-D

    D.Kay, that was a really good post.

    Gawd, I just hate when Jared has they ads all the way around the thread. It slows the thread down, plus you can’t highlight comments, plus it’s slow.

    Did x get distributors for her movies? Are we to be subjected to her next year also? Oh when will it ever end? Peace

    Happy Birthday, Brad!!!!!!

    Brad looks great at 45. I can’t wait to see The Curious Case of B. Button.,ID124184122,index.html

    Happy Birthday Brad, the hottest man alive forever.

  • d.kay

    Oh, my gawwwd, X is going to be promoting movies FOREVER. Guess that is what you get when you are all about quantity and not quality. By the time this pimping is over ……..EVERYONE will be sick to death of her……….talk about over-exposure!!!!!! One thing if you are a real talent, but a B list ‘personality’ with a fan base built on a sit com…….come on, already.

    Wishing you and your loving family all the best.

    You have entertained me for years and years of your career.
    You are the man of your words and I always admire you.
    You walk the talks.

    ” It’s younger man game. I’ve got a few years left of a good run. And truthfully, I’m interested in other things now. Like family ”

    ” I’l be able to figure it out when I get there. I have great faith in that. I’m just really aware of the responsiblity of putting my life second, and your job is to show this little one around the world’

    ‘ I’m not worried that it’s not gonna happen. I’ll make it happen. You go make things you want ”

    Congrats to Brad and Angie for getting the SAG nominations.

    Happy Birthday Brad.

  • Raichill

    Brad has aged quite a bit in the past few years but he is a handsome middle-aged man still.

  • dark angel

    Whoa… that “911″ story scared the hell out of me. Hey JPs, I hope you will be blessed with good health ALWAYS. I really do because you make the world a better place. You deserve every blessing.

  • an oldie

    Maniston can do a movie a month, ten mag covers/month, and as many tv promo rounds she wants. As long as she leaves the JPs out of her who’ring, I am fine with it.

    So great to hear from you, Guli! I agree with you whole-heartedly! Are we going to have a Golden Globes party–and a SAG party too?!

    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.

    Did Traveling pick up a distributor yet? Last I heard, it hadn’t.

  • passing Through

    # 300 warning @ 12/18/2008 at 11:26 pm

    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…

    First of all, you are moron! Haters from UK always most crazy one.
    And second one B ITCH
    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.

    Now. go to hell

  • JM

    UK trolls are like that because of the lack of toothpaste-have you seen their teeth-ewwwww

    X always caught lying.

    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 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.

    Awwww…come on…lay off Ash & Pete. They’re a real odd-looking couple. Whereas X and The Urinator are a fake odd-looking couple. I think real trumps fake like scissors trumps paper. As a matter of fact, from now on I’m going to think of X and The Urinator as “Scissors” and “Paper” – cuz I just want them to cut it out…

    Wow…a new low for trolls…calling a 4 year-old a “little b!tchy”? What’s next, are you going to kick her in the shins and pull her hair? Steal her blanky? Short-sheet her bed? Put a bucket of water of her partially open door? Classy.
