  • releka

    CUTE!!!

  • Queen bee

    LOVE LOVE LOVE how cute Knox is!! He’s got his hoodie on to prevent the cold air from hitting his little cheeks. awe!

    …He Loves that balcony!

  • Queen bee

    I bet the grandparents are having a wonderful time with their grandkids! I knew we’d be seeing them in town soon. WE can barely resist not seeing these cute kids as FANS, so I know the grandparents would miss them terribly if they didn’t visit them for a few weeks a couple time a year. I’m sure this take some of the pressure off Angie and Brad too knowing that they have FAMILY watching the kids. eeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! so happy for them!!!!!!!

    God bless the Pitt grandparents and the Jolie-Pitt family!!!!!!!!!!

  • Neil

    I think Knox is drawn to the balcony. Parents probably tell Grandpa Pitt he loves it and to go ahead and take him out for himself. No greater joy for a Grandparent then to have a trusting little one sharing his world with you.

    Genetics are strange

    Knox is all Angelina

    and

    Viv and Shiloh looks like Brad

  • Baby Knox

    @ykw:
    I keep referring to the article that Rachel did and her friends said that children were never a big issue for Brad when with Rachel…….Brad was not focus on babies with Rachel – please fans – get that thought out of your heads.
    _________

    I agree with you somewhat, but I think you are mis-stating this. Brad doesn’t seem to be a confrontational person. Brad has always said that he wanted a family, kids, but I think once a woman like X seemed interested in signing up for one movie project after another, and kept smoking, I don’t think he is the kind of man to puch a woman into something as important as that. I think once the question about kids constantly came up in the media, he answered honestly in saying he wanted kids and a family, but I dont think he harped on it with X because he didn’t want to pressure her, and because he isn’t that type of aman. I think this is why X thought that kids wasn’t his focus. If she’d been paying attention to her man, SHE WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT HAVING KIDS AND A FAMILY WAS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO HIM….but that he just slowly realized that it wasn’t HER priority.

    In the clip below from 1997, at 35 seconds Brad answers a question (looking pretty sad, as its right after the break up with Gweneth)…. stating that he looks forward to the time, but just hasn’t ‘MATCHED UP WITH THE RIGHT PERSON YET…”….Angelina Jolie was the right person. Jenhag was NOT. period. yay Angie!

  • Rita

    How cute. Now Knox has Papa Pitt taking him out to look at the boats in the canal, while Grammy Jane is keeping an eye on her guys. Lil Viv has not been very happy when she is out on the balcony, she does not seem to be a boat person. Brad’s parents visit on a regular basis, which is great.

    I bet JA doesn’t only realize she lost a great man, but she feels really stupid for not having babies. She really is stuck in 1998! About 10 years ago or so, it wasn’t really the hip thing for starlets to be moms. They were perceived as less sexy and desireable. In the early 2000’s is when a shift started happening. Hollywood women began having babies and creating families. All these stars have become more famous and gotten more publicity thanks to their little cuties. This is the same time that Brad was begging JA for babies. JA’s thinking was outdated and she thought she had to remain childless and slim & trim to be famous. She could have given Brad his babies and probably would have become way more famous than she is now, and maybe it might have motivated her to grow and be a better person. Also try new roles. But no, she was dumb and rigid. She was selfish. Now she is alone. I bet she looks at all these other Hollywood moms that have it all, and knows she was an idiot.

    _________

    so true….so true…

  • Baby Knox

    I don’t think the parents of Knox need to tell his grandparents he loves the balcony, I’m sure Knox himself makes it known where he wants to go. lol And their love for him is much greater than their apprehension of the paps so naturally they’ll brave the cameras and let Knox enjoy the view.

  • Neil

    @Jo:

    LOL. Viv is Angie. Knox is Shilo. Shilo is Brad. Therefor Knox is Brad (when she’s not Angie), s’il vous plaît.

    This is a first time I’ve seen the clip. It was the eye opening. NO question, that Brad was ONE UNHAPPY DISSATISFIED MAN during the promotion of O12. The way he succintly answered the question about his strongest dream – “FAMILY”, but he didn’t crack a smile when he said but kinda moved on abruptly.
    .
    MY guess (and yes, you stupid LOSIES, its a guess, not a statement of fact coz I don’t know and neither do you) is that he had been fighting with Dedn about when to start and they had not been able to agree. Don’t forget Dedn had signed up to 4 new movies by O12 – 2 being produced by

    HO MY, I LOVE THE WAY HE HOLD KNOX, VERY PROTECTIVE.

    AND THE BABY SEEMS HAVING A GOOD TIME.

    (WIRD, IF YOU THINK THAT THE BABY`S DIDN`T SEE THEM OFTEN COUZ THEIR MOMMY HATE`S THEM…. AND CALL THEM “SIMPLE PEOPLE”) oO

    BY THE WAY, WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR BABY`S WITH SOMEONE WHO HATE YOU, AND YOU HATE? @_@

    RUMORS DOWN!…AGAIN.

  • http://deleted Jo

    Knox is a Mini Angie
    He will look like Cillian Murphy when he’s older

  • Baby Knox

    Knox obviously loves being out there more than his twin. I think Vivienne wanted to go out that one time because she wanted her mommy. And as for the time before that, I think it was Brad who just wanted to be close to mommy and happened to be holding Vivienne. lol

    Thanks QB. I believe that clip was during the TROY premiere (pls correct me if I’m wrong) . He was serious when he said “family” & I guess he knew what he got to do to make it happen (JMO). Brad and Angie are the real deal and I love them.

    Yeah it really annoying. Women are always saying, “well if the man meets someone else and doesn’t want to be married anymore, he should tell his wife and move on instead on hurting her by cheating”. ISN’T THAT WHAT BRAD DID.? He told BabyJane he had feelings for someone else, stayed for awhile to see if they could work thru it and when they couldn’t, they parted ways. U tell the truth you get crucified just as if you hadn’t told the truth. But that’s life.

  • Sofia

    How Cute!!!… I honestly think that Knox and Shiloh are all Brad and Viv looks like Angie… also think that knox’s eyes are like his grandfather’s (William Pitt)… Excellent genes!!!

  • elizabeth

    Here comes the balcony moments for Knox with his Grandpa….so cute. I think Knox really likes to see the boat. It’s getting to be his routine. I guess his blanket is important he is hanging tight comparing to previous pics. So glad to see the grandparents. So happy for the JP family.

    How can you say Bounty hunter is a “mid level hit”? It is NOT a hit, period !!!!!

    It is a FLOP if you SPENT TIME to make a movie and can only breakeven or lose money.

    Time spent on making BH is a WASTE OF TIME, therefore the movie bounty hunter is a BOMB…..get it into your head.

    @Lllollll: I guess we just have to agree to disagree because we have different opinions. I don’t think Brad is playing media games. If anything, I think when Brad went to Jen to say he wanted a divorce…she probably made him agree to what they would and would not say to the media. She didn’t want to be blamed for the failed marriage. So Brad does the gentlemanly thing and keeps quiet. But JA does all her passive-aggressive media ploys to make Angie & Brad look bad. Sometimes when you defend yourself, it just makes you look guilty. So Angie & Brad chose to ignore this and just live and be happy. Only Brad & JA know the truth about what happened in their marriage. But I do know that JA didn’t visit Brad when he was filming. She didn’t give him a lot of respect in the media when they were together. And he was talking babies, and she was talking career. Maybe by the time JA finally agreed to have Brad’s babies, he didn’t want to have them with her anymore. After having to beg his own wife of 5 years, he realized how selfish she is. She could of had it all had she only compromised a little. Angie & Brad are able to be in love, have children, make movies, travel, and all the other wonderful things they do. All JA had to do was put in the effort, but it doesn’t seem like it was important to her. I just think JA had some growing up to do. It happens a lot that childish women don’t appreciate a good guy when they have him because they don’t realize what it feels like to be with a bad guy or to be alone. I still don’t think JA has grown up, but I bet if she had to do things over again…she would do it all differently. I don’t have anything against JA or wish her any harm…but I just don’t think she appreciated Brad. Angie does, and that’s why he’s happy with her.
    ____________

    TOTALLY AGREE….and JA STILL has some growing up to do IMHO.

  • Hmmm

    @Jo: I soo agree with you about Knox being all angelina and the girls being mostly brad. That’s how it usually is with the boys favoring their mom and girls favoring their dad

  • Hmmm

    @Jo: yeah I think it’s his eyes. They don’t turn downwards like Shiloh and brads do.

    ….I admire your tenacity a bit, but sadly you are wrong. You are not taking in all the other variables which makes THe Bounty Hunter a FLOP….
    _

    ****
    One of the MAIN reasons it’s a FLOP is the word-of-mouth and the way it’s being perceived. This is an important factor in whether or not an actor will get a film green-lighted again, and how much of a budget the studios will be willing to risk on another project.

    ****
    None of this bodes well for Anustain because she is perceived as someone who always doesn the same kind of film and the same kind of characters. Brad Pitt will always survive because a character like Benjamin Button was unique and the story was different. It had never been done before to have an actor play all those ages at one time.

    ****
    Gerard Butler will survive because his OTHER movie that is out in theatres is actually doing BETTER than Bounty, which means he wasn’t the DEAD WEIGHT on the Bounty project, it was Anustain.

    ****
    Some of the other reasons Bounty Hunter is a flop is because Tina Fey’s movie “DATE NIGHT’ actually beat Clash of The Titans on Friday, and Tina Fey is a ‘TV’ actress. That doesn’t say a lot about Anustains pull at the box office if a TV actress can get more box offic ethan you at the same Rom Com film in a matter of weeks.

    ****
    Another reason Bounty is a Flop is because it showing a consistant downhill momentum in the movies that are released under Anustains name. Most of the time she has to be paired with several actors (He’s Just Not That Into You), or a popular dog from a best-sellling book (Marley and Me), or a male actor with a large male following (The break Up) like Jim Carey, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, and upcoming co-star….Adam Sandler…

    __

    …Anustain can’t carry a movie on her own. And even in the supposedly critically acclaimed ‘the good girl’, she was just doing an accent that I’ve seen her do several times (I think thats the ONLY accent she can do- down south white-trash hick. And I think her accent is an insult to Brad and his family!)….most notably I saw her do this accent several times on Saturday night live skits when she hosted….so I’m not sure why she got kudos for it in the ‘good girl’.
    __

    All this and other variables adds up to her movie being a FLOP. sorry.

    Can’t wait for KICK AZZ, and TREE OF LIFE, and SALT, and THE TOURIST!!!!!!!!!!!
