Brad Pitt: Mayor Of New Orleans?

Brad Pitt: Mayor Of New Orleans?

Several citizens have banded together to get Brad Pitt elected mayor of New Orleans since the actor’s Make It Right foundation has provided green and affordable housing for displaced residents in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Brad was asked if he would serve as Mayor of New Orleans and jokingly told the Today Show on Thursday morning, “Yeah, yeah. I’m running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.”

When pressed some more about running, he said tersely, “I don’t have a chance. It’s not what I do best.”

WOULD YOU VOTE for Brad Pitt as Mayor of NOLA?

I never thought Brad was good enough for Angie. Look who he had been with before! Koo Koo Juliette Lewis, Too Good to Poop Gwyneth, and Horse Face.
I’m glad she never married him. Angie never retreats with warning. One day, she will be gone.
And he’s drinking too much! He can’t smoke the chronic anymore so he’s turned into a lush!!

EXCLUSIVE Resident Supports Brad Pitt As Mayor & Shares Memories Of the Famous Couple

Brad Pitt may not have any confidence in his own mayoral bid but one person who benefited from his Make It Right Foundation thinks otherwise. Melba Leggett-Barnes, who received a new home through the charity, chatted with RadarOnline.com about her recent run-in with Pitt and the support he has shown her from the moment they met. She also discusses her experience with Angelina Jolie and what the actress is like as a mom.

“I think he would win no problem – I know that I would vote for him. I saw Brad on Tuesday (actually last Friday) and he gave me a great big hug before he did his interview with Anne Curry,” Leggett-Barnes shared. “He is a very genuine and down-to-earth person and although he has said his policies wouldn’t go with the position of mayor a lot of people would love to see him in the job.” (Pitt had joked that he could not win an election because of his pro-gay marriage, marijuana legalization, and no religion views.)

“Both my husband Baxter and I are very grateful to him and his foundation for giving us another chance because we lost everything in the hurricane,” she added. Their $150,000 environmentally friendly house was one of the first to be built by Pitt’s foundation after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.

Several of their neighbors drowned in the hurricane and the they ended-up living in a trailer before the Make It Right Foundation stepped in and started to rebuild much safer homes.

“When we met he asked us how we were all doing and everyone around here speaks well of him and Angelina Jolie.”

In fact, Jolie was a hit in the Leggett-Barnes household when she came to visit last fall: “When she was last here in November she brought both Maddox and Pax into our home to show them around and they all ended up rolling around our living room laughing and playing. She is very down to earth and is really a ‘hands-on’ mom who is genuinely interested in learning about how we are doing.”

As for how things are now, Leggett-Barnes sounded optimistic about where things are headed and was passionate about her gratitude to the actor:

“What is great is that a lot of people are still returning all the time and the sense of community is getting stronger all the time. Our new homes have been built to withstand hurricanes, so, that will attract new people too – Brad Pitt and his foundation have done an amazing job and we will always be grateful.”

I’d drink too much too if I was tethered to Angelina Jolie. How else to get through it?

Just a thought for you tard. Learn how to spell.
****************************************************************************************

Here’s a thought for you, ya stupid cretin. Learn to disappear.

How long are you going to keep polluting this blog, Assley? The minute Jared posts a new Brad or Angie thread, you’re on it like white on rice. Are you trying to prove you still exist? Your only existence is online, isn’t it? You have no friends, no man, no kids, no job, no respect, no nothing, so you come on here and make a fool of yourself trying to fill up your empty life. Well, knock yourself out, Ashhole. You’re always good for a few laughs if you aren’t good for anything else.

@may:
LMAO @ this idiot. Get lost.

“Brad was asked if he would serve as Mayor of New Orleans and jokingly told the Today Show on Thursday morning, “Yeah, yeah. I’m running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.”

Angie always did say Brad has a wicked sense of humor. He’s not planning on running for anything and never was. Sheesh.

@mj:
You dumbazz.

TARANTINO on Brad @ 08/13/2009 at 8:11 pm

TARANTINO IMPRESSED BY METHOD ACTOR PITT

QUENTIN TARANTINO was blown away by BRAD PITT’s commitment to his craft after the actor remained in character between takes on the set of INGLOURIOUS ********.
Pitt plays Nazi hunter Aldo Raine in the violent war movie and shows off a thick Tennessee accent, which he refused to drop even when the cameras weren’t rolling.
And writer/director Tarantino insists Pitt’s transformation was invaluable because it allowed him to interact with the character he dreamed up on paper.
He says, “For the most part when we were on set he would stay in character. It was like, ‘Why drop the accent when you don’t have to?’ And I have always liked it when actors do that.
“He’d get into Aldo’s mindset and stay there. He could be Brad and make a Brad joke but it was always in Aldo’s dialect. Aldo is more crude than Brad. So that allowed Brad to go all the way with that.
“It was wonderful as a writer to be confronted by my character all day, and to talk to him and ask questions.”
The filmmaker believes Pitt is now in his career prime – and is already plotting future projects to work with him again.
Tarantino adds, “Brad deserves more respect and I think he is getting it. He has become arguably the biggest male movie star in the world. It seems like his time. It is the best time to work with him. I would work with Brad again in a heartbeat.”

********-$1318662.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.inthenews.co.uk/entertainment/reviews/film/entertainment/reviews/film/inglourious-********-$1318662.htm
In a nutshell…

Hilarious, intense and bold – a triumph.

Who’s in it?

The Americans, you already know, with Brad Pitt putting on his best Tennessee drawl, Eli Roth wielding a baseball bat with intent and Mike Myers putting false teeth and public school vowels to good use as a British officer. Hunger’s Michael Fassbender and National Treasure actress Diane Kruger are a fine double act, but the show belongs to Christoph Waltz and Melanie Laurent, the former conniving and charismatic as the ‘Jew Hunter’,

As an example…

“Facts can be so misleading while rumours, true or false, are often revealing.” – Hans Landa

“Each and every man under my command owes me 100 Nazi scalps – and I want my scalps!” – Lt Aldo Raine

“If this is it, old boy, I hope you don’t mind me going out speaking the King’s… ” – Lt Archie Hicox

Likelihood of a trip to the Oscars

Tarantino’s best chance of a best director Oscar since Pulp Fiction and the screenplay’s too indulgent to lead to a best picture nod, QT might just be clutching a little gold statuette in honour of his writing next year.

Yet as Lieutenant Aldo Raine (a low-key Pitt) delivers an agonising punishment to a ruthless foe and remarks: “This might be my masterpiece”, it’s not to hard to agree with the writer/director’s opinions thinly veiled behind that bloodthirsty quip. Even if its liberties with the truth, dense structure and too-talky script mean it’s not necessarily Tarantino’s masterwork, it’s certainly his strongest and most entertaining film since Pulp Fiction

@debra77:

Dearest JP Fans

Please do not try to understand the insane idiots that frequent the Jolie-Pitt threads. They are insane with jealousy!

No one, in their right mind, tries to communicate with the insane! It only makes them crazier and it encourages them to keep posting.

Please STOP asking them for their timelines and break-up stories.

Why do you want to hear more lies?

And please STOP quoting anything they have to say. Do not give them free publicity and relevance!

They have NOTHING to offer you that you would truly want.

You cannot reason with the unreasonable and the irrational.

They don’t want your REASON and RATIONAL…..they only want you to pay attention to them.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

When you request proof from them they are reenergized and delighted! YOU have responded to them. And that means so much to the insane!

Whatever they have to say is irrelevant! And they are INSANE!

Do no share their insanity and strengthen it.

Respond – but only with TRUTH!

Do NOT ASK them anything!

=======================

Very well said. If Brad didn’t value Angelina and his kids, he wouldn’t be worried about losing them. I am glad both Angelina value their family above anybody or anything else. That’s why they are always together. No such thing as leaving the family for weeks to go shoot a movie. Heck, who would want to leave cute kids like theirs for an extended period of time, not to mention the sexy Brad or Angelina.

Did management hit the dvd shelf yet,lol

Not yet…but never fear…it’ll be in Cut-out bins all around LA in the not too distance future. The movie made so little money and is distributed by such a small-time distributor that I’m LMAO wondering if they even have money to press that sucker to DVDs. And if they do – how many copies do they make? 1,000? 2,000? 10,000? Add those numbers together and there weren’t even that many people who went to the theater to see it! And DVDs aren’t selling like they used to. So, as the saying goes, do you throw good money after bad?

Brad and Angie? @ 08/13/2009 at 8:51 pm

Here today and gone tomorrow???
Doesn’t sound very stable.
“Someday it won’t always be there, so I don’t look forward to that day. It comes with it, you know. The greater the love, the greater the loss, I think the saying goes.”

@always the truth:
Hey I like how you said “Go out and do something good. Just a thought.” :P

Just ignore the annoying troll. When you engage it, it takes over the thread.
Back to the IB Premiere RC. I think Frank Gehry was there. I’ll go to Getty to look if they have any pictures of him that day. BRB.

recenty, he looks like jack N.
