Brad Pitt: 'Tree of Life' Talk!

Brad Pitt: 'Tree of Life' Talk!

Brad Pitt and his architect visit the Antolini Luigi warehouse in Sega di Cavaion, northern Italy, to purchase some marble and other stone for his family’s home in France on Wednesday (April 14).

The 46-year-old actor was nice enough to take pics with fans. Brad‘s mom Jane Pitt and Angelina Jolie were seen getting in some balcony bonding time with the twins.

Brad recently talked to Empire about his new movie, Tree of Life.

When asked if Tree of Life could be classified as a sci-fi flick, Brad replied, “Well, in a way. It’s this little tiny story of a kid growing up in the 50s with a mother who’s grace incarnate and a father who’s oppressive in nature. So he is negotiating his way through it, defining who he’s gonna be when he grows up. And that is juxtaposed with a little, tiny micro-story of the cosmos, from the beginning of the cosmos to the death of the cosmos. So that’s where the sci-fi – or the sci-fact – comes in.”

Tree of Life is rumored to premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

    He can grown his beard down to the floor and I’d still hit it!!!

  • peapo

    I love that Brad and Angie have so many more interests than just acting. They are both such smart and well-rounded people. They don’t just bask in the sun figuratively and literally. Oh and really attractive too.

  • LuckyL

    I knew it was a go!!!!!

  • sharon

    Brad looks sooooo hot.

  • Jowly Pitt

    I bet his face looks really chubby without the beard.

  • not cool

    under The Tree of Life sits a dude dressed like a bum…Brad

  • cnc

    You know I was never a huge BP fan before he hooked up with Angie but he’s grown on me and even with that beard…who’d a thunk. I like his style and his swagger and that he just seems like the kind of guy who knows he’s famous but doesn’t let it define him as such. He’s aware but not overly so or at least he portrays himself as such. Hollyhood is such a ridiculous place and to come across as an everyman is hard to do. Brad seems to be doing that just fine. Also he’s shagging Angelina on a regular basis. Not a bad lot in life, nope not too shabby at all.

  • Cruz

    Brad has impeccable taste….the stone work is amazzzzzzzzzing

  • gracie

    New pics of Viv, she is going to be a knock out like her mamma when she grows up. She is a beauty. Scroll down for her pics. She is telling the haters where to stick it with her two little finger gesture. Hahahah.
    We’re being spoilt for choice today. What a week for all JP fans! JJ, thank you.

  • so humble

    marble shopping for your mansion in France with your Architect in Italy…..everybody does that…………Brad Pitt : man of the people

  • Sofia

    wirh beard or not he looks soooooooo HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Gosh I love him!

  • dakila

    People say that he’s grown old since he started living with Angie. Well, i don’t see it that way, he may have, but look at all the interesting things he’s doing now. Bless him and his family!!!

  • peapo

    He grew a huge beard when he was with Manistan and there was never this much buzz.
    Leave his beard alone.

    He has better than things to do than work on his face all the time like his ex!

    I again commend Brad and Angie for their interesting hobbies and life saving charity work. Their children must hear many interesting conversations.

    I just really respect tehm


    The Jolie-Pitt fans are having the best week ever!!!

    Oh brother. Now suddenly everyone is an expert on Brad’s finances? GMAFB. Brad made an absolute killing on Troy & M&MS. Angie made an absolute killing on Wanted and got $20MIL + backend on Salt and is probably pulling close to the same on The Tourist. Brad did BAR, TAOJJ, TOL and IB for basically peanuts. He just earned $10MIL for doing voice work in 2 animated movies and that probably took him all of 20 days to do. The studios pay their living expenses and provide some security when they’re shooting movies so it’s not like they’re incurring a lot of out of pocket expenses when they’re working. When Brad was asked a few years ago about not doing franchise-type movies he shrugged and said said, “How much more do I need?” At the Newsweek Oscar roundtable in 2007 he was the only on of 8 actors to say he’s NEVER worried that he’ll never work again. Besides – both Billy Beane and Michael Lewis have already confirmed that Brad is on board. Deadline even said that Brad was onboard and doing the movie for a reduced fee and a higher backend.

  • Jowls Pitt

    @peapo: He didn’t have Jowls to cover up back then. Brad Pitt now looks better from a distance. As long as the pictures aren’t close up he looks good cause you can’t tell how old he got. I wonder why he didn’t take his dad or mother along for the ride? Maybe they would rather hang out with Jolie and her kids. Wouldn’t that be a shocker roflmao

  • onwell

    He is gorgeous beard or no beard.

  • eliott

    Mr. Pitt, you are a sexy beast. You (finally) found your equal in AJ.

  • Celia

    Awesome. I can’t wait to see it. I love all Brad’s movies. He’s such a talented actor.

  • happy girl

    big pitt fan here but i do have a serious question and if anyone can answer seriously let me know: is the beard for a role or just to rebel against paps and his image of past? just wondering if it is for a role. he has had it for quite some time now.

  • eliott


    Yep, the longer hair does it. Plus, the man has a great body. Even his walk is sexy as heII.

    Omg thanks! Adventurer Angelina is loving as Vivienne slowly becomes comfortable with the balcony! I love how she never forces her children to do or be anything!!

  • LuckyL

    Boredom and a role, if I recall happy girl.

  • still lookin’

    Left side of pic has Brad looking at some hot Italian asz.

  • Jowly Pitt

    @happy girl: Look up older pix of him. You can see his neck an jaw is sagging.

  • hmm

    @happy girl:
    Not for a role. He is just tired of shaving.

  • ruby

    LOL Left side of picture goes with different pics,was was put here to cause some talk on this blog,haters are such dummies.

  • :)

    Love this man. I love his work. I love his lady’s work, and, I just don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks. :)

  • Jess

    He is so nice to fans and sexy.

  • niwatori

    Like someone earlier said, I totally adore the fact that there is more than just acting into B&A. They aren’t your typical hollywood couple with no purpose whatsoever. They both have their flaws but together they’re perfection. they complete each other ♥

  • MrMarleyFAN


    I love your post. They keep me interested more because of what they out side of hollywood. They just seem so tight and like friends just as much as lovers and co-parents. I wish somebody could find when Brad said something about not knowing the kind of intimacy before like he got with Angie. Not the sexual kind but just closeness of knowing warts and all.

    Scrappy Fighter “Kick-Ass” High On Hollywood Radar

    It had low-wattage stars, no Spiderman or Batman, and little money behind it. In short, the script had little that a major studio wants when developing a movie, yet days before its U.S. debut “Kick-Ass” now has what they all desire — huge fan excitement.

    The new film about a costumed crime fighter with no real superpowers bills itself as a cheeky blend of teen humor and stylish violence, directed by a veteran of seedy British gangster films, Matthew Vaughn.

    Ahead of its U.S. debut on Friday, that combination has fueled a strong buzz among “fan boys” — mostly young men who crave movies about comic book superheroes. The “Kick-Ass” Facebook page enjoys over 150,000 “fans” and early reviews have been favorable for the most part.

    “All the studios said no to it,” Vaughn told Reuters. So, the “Layer Cake” director raised the $35 million he needed from private investors and reached his target only weeks before the first signs of 2008′s financial market meltdown.

    “I knew the recession was pretty serious because six weeks later the ‘fun, stupid’ investment became the best investment they (the investors) had right then,” Vaughn said.

    In the movie, typical New York teen and comic book nerd Dave Lizewski (19-year-old actor Aaron Johnson), dons a wacky green costume to become the superhero-cum-vigilante “Kiss-Ass.” He sets out to battle evil-doers but having no superpowers, he is savagely beaten on one of his first crime-fighting forays.

    Yet, with a wink and nod to modern Internet celebrity, the amateur superhero eventually becomes a Web sensation, allowing him to meet the father-daughter crime fighting duo “Big Daddy” (Nicolas Cage) and “Hit Girl” (11 year-old Chloe Moretz). Banding forces, the trio attacks mob boss Frank D’Amico and his son Chris — who concocts his own superhero, “Red Mist.”


    Johnson compares “Kick-Ass” to a teen coming-of-age comedy that morphs into a violent revenge fantasy and back again to comedy. It strives to combine the awkward, humorous moments of adolescence with stylized, over-the-top action of more traditional comic book films.

    Backed by private funding, Vaughn added some star appeal by hiring comic fan Cage, and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment signed up as a co-producer with Vaughn’s Marv Films.


    YUM, Great picture!

    …she’s got here arms above her head and trailing the fingers of one hand down the length of the opposite arm… Ho has seen that Mondo Bongo dance scene one time too many…
    PT no. Say it ain’t so. It can’t be. She wouldn’t go that far. It was probably a yoga pose and then she got an itch on her arm – probably from eating too much guacamole…anything but trying to recreate that Mongo Bongo dance scene…just picturing it and I’m feeling too ashamed for her…I have to see those pics. I won’t believe it until I see it. Was she drunk? Did she look drunk?
    LOL! Well, as it turned out I mis-remembered slightly, but that may have had to do with the searing pain in my retinas looking at pix of X trying to dance cause… I just looked at the picture again – at further risk to my eyesight – before I upload it and no, it’s not quite the same as Mondo Bongo…but close enough for horsehoes, hand grenades and X coinkydinks…

    ‘Kick-Ass’ director: ‘This movie has broken every rule’
    April 14, 2010 | 3:09 pm

    Nursing a nasty Jack Daniels hangover, director Matthew Vaughn spent Wednesday morning doing the same thing he’s been doing for weeks: defending “Kick-Ass,” his ultra-violent and deliriously profane superhero film, which opens Friday.

    “Awkward conversations? Oh, yeah, are you joking? It’s every day. It’s every day. And, of course, the people that do complain, 99% of them haven’t seen the film. I tell them, ‘Go see the movie and then call me up after and I’ll chat as long as you want, I’d be interested in your opinion.’ And a lot of those people call up and tell me, ‘I don’t know how to say this, but I loved it.’”

    Love it or hate it, “Kick-Ass” is one of the most audacious films of the year, a sort of loopy R-rated mash-up with the loser-turned-hero mythology of “Spider-Man,” the mayhem fetish of “Fight Club” and the high-school nihilism of “Heathers.”

    The movie, which was written by Vaughn (he’s also the producer along with Brad Pitt) and Jane Goldman and based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name, asks the question, “What would happen if costumed crime fighters showed up on the streets of real-world New York instead of imaginary Gotham City?” The answer, of course, isn’t pretty.

    The film is a black comedy but there’s a dash of the creepy vigilante fantasy of Travis Bickle and “Taxi Driver,” and like that 1976 film, this new movie is stirring controversy because of a young female actress presented in a lurid role. In the Martin Scorsese urban-loner classic, it was a 13-year-old Jodie Foster playing a young hooker; in “Kick-Ass,” it’s 13-year-old Chloë Moretz as Hit Girl, a whirling martial-arts killer with a shockingly salty mouth.

    @Brad Fan:

    I’m the real Brad Fan that posts on here. You know Brad has fabulous taste. As a House & Garden guru, I am facinated to learn more about this little side trip. Does he like to go to the brocantes with Angelina or go to the salvage places where they have fireplaces, old medieval doors and the like? My type of guy! Thanks for the new threads JJ.
