Pete Wentz Loves (And Hates) Brad Pitt

Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz has taken to his blog again to list his “Top 9 Gripes of 2008″ as well as his “Top 9 Favorite Things of 2008″. Strangely enough, Brad Pitt‘s latest movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, made both lists.

GRIPE: “This is a weird one because it’s definitely on my top list as well. I just think i over hyped this in my own head. This gets nowhere near the [F. Scott] Fitzgerald short story based on the Mark Twain quote I would have imagined in my high school brain. I hate how jumpy the movie is and I honestly don’t think there is much chemistry between Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. I also think it’s kind of a cop-out to push it forward some sixty years in my mind just to have it conclude with some relation to Hurricane Katrina.”

FAVORITE: “It’s weird that I put this on both lists but the truth is you can’t deny [Director David] Fincher‘s eyes for film. Also, I give it to Brad Pitt for picking interesting roles. The idea of this narrative is mind-blowing and at times I fell for the story.” (TCCOBB is in theaters now.)

Another notable Top 9 Favorite of Pete‘s: “Watching John Mayer doing Van Halen better than Van Halen in an amphitheater in Southern California. Shirts optional, solos mandatory.”

Check out the rest of Pete‘s top 9′s at PeteWentz.com.

    Just someone who is insignificant trying to get attention by dropping famous names.

  • teri

    I loved the movie it was fantastic. There will always be critics out there, can’t please them all. I’ve heard more positive than negative about CCOBB so that’s a plus.

  • SAYINI

    He doesn´t love or hate brad pitt.. He doesn´t like certain things of the movie and likes some parts..

  • Wilson

    Nothing wrong with somebody giving his point of view. Everybody has different tastes.

    aida,

    …`isn’t that what`a blog’s about?!? lmaooooo

  • Halo

    Speak your mind Pete!

  • Um…

    This has got to be a slow news day given the insignificance and ridiculousness of this. 1st, who gives a craps about what Pete Wentz thinks about anything? And 2nd, titling the item that way and implying that Pete has some personal feelings for and against Brad Pitt is really misleading. Pete was speaking in reference to a movie, not to Brad personally. Seriously……

  • Halo

    People do have different tastes.

    I loved the film but I hated Brad Pitt for his lack of emotion when he was younger in the film…

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

    I could agree it he gave his point of view on other movies. Where is his point of view on all the other award contenders or the latest Christmas movies.

    His point could be seen as a little skewed since he is great friends with John Mayer who just happens to be dating Brad’s X.

    So, it doesn’t come across as innocent as you make it out to be.

  • Julia

    It certaintly didn’t do as well as it they thought it was going to do. I have yet to see it but I do plan to even though I think he is a scumbag but he is a good actor.

  • new2

    I love this kid.

  • wow

    #9, I doubt that what Pete was getting at, since the blog had 9 gripes and only the 2 that had anything to do with the Pitt/Aniston thing were the only ones mentioned. I don’t think Pete’s view of Benjamin Button was motivated by anything but his view of the film. I think that Just Jared wants you to get that from the blog, but that doesn’t seem to the be blog’s intent. It’s just another attempt to keep the Jolie/Aniston thing alive since it seems to drive many posts on this site.

  • lol

    This guy is a tad little bit obsessed with Brad. Must be Mayer rubbing *heh* off on him. This kid actually last week compared himself to Brad and Angelina and the press/media obsession over their kids to his own newborn baby. This guy is a JOKE. Dude, go back to putting your eyeliner on, suppressing your homosexual tendencies, believing that people actually care about your D list ass, oh and STFU

    And how do you know what he has given his opinion on that hasn’t been reported? I’m thinking he was probably asked about this specific film for some reason. It isn’t clear what circumstances these statements were made under, but I highly doubt it was to get his view on all the award contenders.

  • Connect the dots

    Dishing Brad while praising John. Hummm, isn’t he a friend of JM? Too obvious. Not to mention that he’s probably still pissed that no tabloids wanted to buy his baby pics.

    I don’t really care what Jared was trying to do when I read this my question is why this movie? Where is his personal review of other movies? It is one thing to talk about it among friends but if you are actually going to put it on a blog (which he did) then why this movie? Did he not see any other movies? Where is his review of them. But hey that is just my opinion and how I see it. That’s it for me I won’t waste anymore time on what Pete Wentz thinks about anything. This is the guy that said his wife’s breast milk tasted sour.

  • AH

    You people are really naive if you believe this moron didn’t write about Brad on purpose. Of course he did. He’s not stupid. He knows (because he obviously searches the net himself and reads Brad’s interviews) any mention of Brad Pitt and/or Angelina will guarantee his BS will get linked and/or posted on other blogs. This loser almost quoted Brad’s comments verbatim about the paparazzi situation. ROTFLMAO. Like this little turd and Ashley even comes close to anything like Brad & Angelina. Puleeeeze.

  • Cane

    I like his response. Not everybody gets orgasmic over the Pitt, which means there is some sanity in this world. Not that I have anything against Pitt, it’s just the hype that gets bent way the hell out of shape. I haven’t seen the film but probably will sometime, if not at the movies, then on HBO. I’m not in a hurry.

  • tizzy

    Wow he can read…learn something new everyday. By the way – who is he?

  • AH

    I agree with a lot of what he said about CCOBB. There was/is zero chemistry between Blanchett and Pitt. Still doesn’t take away from the fact he posted this knows Perez and Jared would put it up on their blogs and link it. It’s the cheese and everyone else is the mouse. And people are naive not to think Jared put this up because it mentions Pitt. Jared has a major love/hate problem with his site with Jolie-Pitt fans and the Aniston fanatics that hate them. The JP’s haven’t been photographed in weeks, I’m sure those old JP threads are up into the THOUSANDS.

  • LOL

    If Mayer was still allowed to blog you know full well he’d be talking about Brad too and his love and disappointment over CCOBB. lol.

  • well…

    Wilson @ 01/03/2009 at 9:52 am

    This is from his blog which he wrote.

    Yep Wentz has been on the Jolie Pitt theme for a while. He and JM must talk about them alot. However I don’t read this as a negative toward Brad. It’s more a negative toward the script. But Wentz needs to stop trying to get attention by speaking about B&A.

  • No dog in the fight

    And since everybody will continue to buy into it and go apeshit about it, on both sides, instead of keeping a reasonbly cool head and not giving it the time of day, it’ll continue until the end of time because they’re sheep. I say stop being sheep and buying into this crap and allowing yourselves to be baited with every friggin’ thing out there. And guess what? It’ll eventually stop.

  • LOL

    It’s not negative towards Brad. He just wasn’t in love with his movie. Who cares? The point is, he’s been riding everything Brad and Jolie for some time now. I think this little twerp actually believes he and Ashley are Brad and Angelina’s equal. OMG. LMAO

  • LolaSvelt

    He sucks if he thinks that Blanchett and Pitt had no chemistry. That was the best part of the film!

  • LOL

    I just checked. Brad’s LATimes interview has over 1,800 posts. Good Lord.

  • LOL

    I didn’t think Cate and Brad had chemistry either. In fact the whole Daisy/Benjamin relationship was the most boring part of the whole film. They should of let Benjamin continue his journeys and meet different people. No one cared about Daisy and that shows in the lack of nominations by Blanchett this year.

  • huh

    He is just a kid,He see’s his friend Mayer getting name in press by riding coatails of Jolie-Pitts, So he is Learning.Good teacher he has.

  • huh

    Let him talk,No harm to the H.w. Power Couple.

  • AH

    He’s 29. He’s no kid. He’ll be 30 this summer

  • well…

    LOL @ 01/03/2009 at 10:14 am

    It’s not negative towards Brad.

    Agree. Jared’s title to this thread is negative. I guess you really do want us to all leave don’t you Jared.

  • well…

    Wentz think A Simpson can sing. So I would not put too much stock in his opinions.

  • huh

    I think this kid is married to Jessica Simpson’s Sister.

  • Dawn

    This idiot couldn’t follow the story because he’s not too bright and he shouldn’lt let his love for John Mayer and desperate need for publicity cloud his judgement. No one would be taking about him if he wasn’t dropping Brad’s name. He should be blogging about his new born..douche!

  • same old same old

    jared puts out the bait and the fish take it,jared doesn’t care what thread you post in,a hit is a hit.

  • huh

    Brad does not even know this little guy exist.

  • huh

    #31 maybe no kid but he looks short.Like one of the three stooges ,Moe.

  • AH

    When he ever blogged and said “there was a bounty on their heads” “like some other celebrities have said” Everyone should of known right then and there what he was up to. Since then he’s fixated on everything Brad Pitt. This is the 4th reference he’s made to Brad. Fine, his blog, he can say what he wants but lets not pretend what this is. And lets not pretend why this annoying little blurb was put up and linked on this site

  • fresh

    why is this dumb dumb famous? GO AWAY. You no talent hack.

  • me me me

    the title looks to me like all the other JJ titles, a bit suggestive but sticks with the story. i see nothing arguable about it, titles are meant to cause suspicion, that makes you read the article (that isn’t biased).

  • kayasaku

    poor peter… lets give him the attention he needs lol

  • bonnie

    Of course it’s nothing like the short story! The film is a romance, the short story is sexist and depressing. He shoehorns the ‘short story based on Mark Twain quote’ in so he can make sure everyone knows he’s aware of this. God this kid is annoying. He’s so desperate for attention- stop giving it to him! And constantly ranting about Mayer- he’s rubbish.

  • debra77

    Why is this person significant. Jennifer has in effect shut John’s mouth up.. But Pete is talking non stop.. First all the inappropriate things regarding his and Ashlee’s love life, and next her breast milk…. yuck.. Just like the post from Brody Jenner.. He said something about Brad too. These are children doing what children do….

    Trying to get attention. I have reached the point where I have put away childish things…Bye

  • sofia

    So it’s not really “Brad Pitt.” It’s Benjamin Button that he hates/loves. I wish they’d stop using famous people’s names to get hits.

  • http://www.vectormotors.com gerard Vandenberg

    Did he forgot who hates him?

  • May

    Well thanks for ruining the ending Pete, thanks alot.

  • Hes right

    Tilda and Brad had more fire. I don’t understand the hype at all. The film was too long and pretentious.

  • Jerry

    who CARES about this nitwit’s opinion
    about a masterpiece of Fincher’s. ugh!

  • why he does not get it

    Actually, people like him in Hollywood who want to be forever young and stars …will NOT appreciate this movie. Button is the anti-thesis of Hollywood today.

    It makes you re-evaluate your life. Life is short and live it. want it. own it.

    When you follow the philosophy of the movie, you won’t spent time on your hair and applying eyeliner like Wnetz looks. Nor would you be reconstructing your nose like his wife.
