Brad Pitt: Sumo Wrestler Help!

Brad Pitt: Sumo Wrestler Help!

Brad Pitt continues filming his commercial for Japanese cell phone company Softbank with his favorite sumo wrestler in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday (April 29).

The 45-year-old actor was seen holding up the sumo wrestler, who was already held up with four different suspension wires.

Last night, Brad was played the sumo wrestler’s umbrella holder. This looks like it’s going to be another fun one!

Builders & Titans

Brad Pitt
By James Carville and Mary Matalin

During the civil rights movement, the distinction was made between those who would “talk the talk” — i.e., attend parties, fundraisers and speeches — and those who would be willing to “walk the walk” — that is, use their bodies as a backstop for nightsticks and clubs.

In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the news media and New Orleans itself were inundated with people who were willing to talk the talk. And from this gaggle of talkers emerged one who took the long walk with our city.

Brad Pitt found, after listening to residents, that this horrible man-made disaster created an opportunity to build something better than what had existed before. From starting the Make It Right Foundation, which is building hundreds of affordable and sustainable homes in the Lower Ninth Ward and elsewhere in the city, to his advocacy on behalf of New Orleans with congressional leaders to his filming of the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which featured our city so beautifully, Pitt has remained committed to the people of New Orleans.

We knew we were getting a Sexiest Man Alive, and we soon found we got the most committed one too.

At a time when New Orleans’ future — and an entire culture — hangs in the balance, one of the most sought-after actors in the world and our fellow New Orleanian hasn’t simply helped people; he’s also given them their lives back. Pitt, 45, has brought life and hope to the nation’s most unique city and one we’re proud to call home. In a place that has been described as “the city that care forgot,” it is a fact that Brad Pitt never forgot to care.

Carville and Matalin are political strategists

Let’s see it the other media will copy and act like they did the research themselves:

This is not just any sumo wrestler with Brad in this commercial

Musashimaru Koyo, born May 2, 1971 as Fiamalu Penitani in (American Samoa), is a former sumo wrestler.

He was the second foreign-born wrestler in history to reach the rank of yokozuna. He won over 700 top division bouts and took twelve top division tournament championships during his career.

Musashimaru’s sheer 235 kg (520 lb) bulk combined with 1.92 m (6 ft 3+1⁄2 in) of height made him a formidable opponent, and he was remarkably consistent and injury-free for most of his career. An amiable personality, his fan base was helped by a surprising facial resemblance to Japanese warrior hero Saigō Takamori[1]. He now works as a coach at Musashigawa stable.

In November 2002 he tore a tendon in his left wrist, an injury which proved to be career-ending.

Angie wrote the profile for Somaly Mam for The 2009 Time 100

Somaly Mam
By Angelina Jolie
.
Somaly Mam and Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime were born around the same time — when the U.S. began secretly carpet bombing her country. The bombed villages became fertile ground for the Khmer Rouge’s growth and Pol Pot’s revolution.
.
By the time Mam was 5, the Khmer Rouge controlled Cambodia and had proceeded to kill 1.5 million people as Pol Pot implemented his radical form of communism. Torture, executions and forced labor were widespread. Families fled for safety, and massive internal displacement decimated Cambodian society in the years that followed.
.
Against this backdrop, 12-year-old Mam was sold into sexual slavery by a man who posed as her grandfather. She eventually ended up in a Phnom Penh brothel, beginning a decade of horrific rape and torture. She describes this period of her life simply: “I was dead. I had no affection for anyone.”
.
Terror is the weapon of choice for those who hold women in sexual bondage. They depend on their victims’ being frozen with fear. Traffickers hope that with enough pain and degradation, women will simply accept their fate as inescapable.
.
But Mam was able to escape. With the help of an aid worker from France, she fled Cambodia in 1993.
.
The fact that she escaped makes her unique, but what makes her truly extraordinary is that she went back. While, understandably, most people would spend the rest of their lives quietly recovering from their wounds, Mam decided to confront the system that continues to victimize Cambodian girls.
.
In 1996, Mam created a nonprofit organization called AFESIP (Agir pour les Femmes en Situation Précaire, or Acting for Women in Distressing Circumstances) that works with local law enforcement to raid brothels and reintegrate the trafficked women into society. It is estimated that between 1.2 million and 2 million people are currently being held as sex slaves around the world. Mam, now 38 or 39 (she does not know her birthday), has established a model for addressing this issue and has already helped more than 4,000 women escape the brothels.
.
She has paid a terrible personal price for doing so, enduring death threats and assaults. In an effort to deter her work, brothel owners even kidnapped, drugged and raped Mam’s then 14-year-old daughter in 2006.
.
Most people would have walked away. Mam continues to fight back so that others can be spared the pain she once suffered.
.
Jolie, an Oscar-winning actress, is a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commission for Refugees and co-chair of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

“Embarrassed and more than a little ashamed.”
That’s how H-Bomb and I felt after our attempt at Paparazzi-ism. Armed with atlases for Nassau and Suffolk county, a cheesy digital camera and a shitload of curiosity, we began out hunt to find Brangelina. Feeling stupid, but encouraged by curiosity.
As you may be aware, the Jolie-Pitt clan is shacking up on Long Island’s north shore while Angie films the movie Salt. The couple has been seen buying groceries and stopping in for coffee in Oyster Bay (which is odd, since Huntington is far closer to their Lloyd Harbor digs).
1st Stop: Oyster Bay. H-Bomb and I took a peek at the Stop and Shop Clan Brangelina frequents. I’d have pegged them for Whole Foods or Wild by Nature… but they’re keeping it low-brow and stocking up on their goods just like the rest of us common folk. Just down the road from the Stop and Shop, Brangie stops in for their java fix at the Oyster Bay Dunkin’ Donuts. They had been there just before we arrived (typical). But the employee we spoke to must have been told to keep conversations about the couple short. He would only confirm that they’d been there that day. Ahh well…
2nd Stop: Centre Island. Off to tour the incredibly rich and private peninsula just beyond Oyster Bay. Passing the “No Outlet” sign and the “Private Road” deterrents, cleverly displayed to keep the nonresidents at bay. Brangie were staying in Rupert Murdoch’s former estate while their Lloyd Harbor mansion, Sassafras, was being remodeled. It’s an incredibly private community. I’m sure my Nissan Sentra stuck out like a sore thumb.
3rd Stop: Lloyd Harbor. Past the tiny strip of land that separates the Sound from the harbor, just after the sprawling estate that used to be Billy Joel’s is a countrified community that’s home to Caumsett Park. Sprinkled in and amongst the rolling hills and tree lined streets are a bevy of gorgeous mansions, some with large gates. It’s only possible to access the more modest mansions from the street. The estates with water views are entirely blocked off to public traffic. Sassafras lies beyond that point of privacy, at the tip of the Lloyd Harbor community. If only we’d rented a boat…
Thus concluded our journey. We came close to a sighting, but the timing had been off. Ah, well… maybe next time.

Congratulations to Brad on Time 100.

@dulcinea13:

What an amazing woman Somaly Mam. Thank you for posting. And Thank you Angelina for writing her profile. If Mam is not a Profile in Courage than I don’t know what is.
.
Congrats to Brad

how weird that Angelina is not on the list. what a disappointment. another article act like Brad is the only person behind MIR.

Congrats to Brad for making the list of Time 100 most influential.

@not is not a big deal is good for other people to get recognised
there is always next year plus we know our angie has done alot of great things
a win for one is a win for both

If Mickey Brett was writing a tell all I guarantee Tom Cruise is the one who would want to stop it. There’s an old story from a dude named BIG RED check out his story about tom cruise he mentioned Toms Bodyguard and it sure does sound like it was Mickey. lmao!

so much for growing old naturally. Looks like he got in the
dye bottle again. Look at George, he actually means what
he says.

@angel: I beg to differ. Angelina has done so much and to have coattail rider like brad swoop in on her credibility is wrong. I doubt Angelina really cares though because she doesn’t do what she does for recognition. as a fan it would be nice to see her get some respect for what she does instead of having pitt always getting praise for jumping on the Katrina trains suspiciously when he was labeled a cheater, himbo, flake in the media. It’s image for pitt but that’s how it goes , i guess.

I love how Brad & Angelina are just going on about their lives. It’s great that’s why everyone loves them. They are just doing normal things and are very active in their communities. It may be boring for celeb magazines who have to make up stuff but they are just folks. Love them.

@not you sound familiar troll
i will not talk to you again
you idiots are full of ****
same tactics diffeerent name
jkeep your name
just saying
beat it

SILVER LINING @ 04/30/2009 at 6:06 am

If there is a silver lining about jared selling out to maniston its that he now hardly have any post about angie,all maniston and brad postS,its brad and maniston post 24/7 around here.Well at least angie and the kids have their privacy,continue jared, how about 2 more maniston posts and 2 more brad post today,i’m out of here for good,ciao

yup, that’s how it’s been in the media for the last oh I don’t know 4 years. Angelina gets trashed and brad and maniston praised for whatever. this was the last site that showed some level of respect to Angelina. now even TIMe has jumped on the bandwagon. I don’t mind because people are slowly but surely getting tired of Brad. You now, overexposure and all that. it’s best if he doesn’t post more angelina threads.

the real lou @ 04/30/2009 at 12:47 pm

# 116 angel @ 04/30/2009 at 12:36 pm …Please just ignore “not” or whatever name this person is using at the moment.Just another name changer trying to start sh*t on the thread.

You see how Brad made Time Magazine,Because he has a Woman who brings out the Best in him.If he would of stayed with the retarded x wife who is over 40 trying to be Miley C. He would still be with her smoking m.j. on the couch in HW.
