Brad, his family, and the crew arrived in Glasgow earlier in the week on a privately chartered train.

    Ruh roh. LMAO! Looks like someone forgot to go to and look up the definition of “rhetorical”. But, to throw a ho a bone, the poor twoll got her itsy bitsy feelings hurt because she was bright enough to read between the lines and recognize she was being told to fvck off. I’m impressed. Next up the twoll will demonstrate her ability to shove a flag pole up her ass while doing the twist. Somebody queue up the Chubby Checker video for this dumb ass skankette.

    Brad Pitt was back on the Glasgow set of World War Z this morning, logging his second day in Scotland. He and his family arrived there Tuesday, and now Angelina and the kids have settled into the nearby Carnell Estate. While Brad was filming,Angelina played with Knox and Vivienne on the beautiful fields surrounding the rented property. It seems locals are excited to see Brad in action, as Scots have crowded around where they’re shooting to get a look at Brad — a downtown sandwich shop even named a menu item in his honor!

  • WBPfan

    Troll comments are actually adding more hits to the Brad sites so keep writing and proving Brad is of greater interest than Aniston or her publicity driven romance of the month.

    Don’t be too harsh on the troll, O2. It’s got to be hard trying to make ends meet on what Ticky, oops, I meant Huvsy, pays. I just love it when the trolls accuse me of being here all day without realizing they’re telling on themselves. How do they know I’m here all day unless they are, too? Poor little idiot.

    Angelina Jolie spent this afternoon playing at the Carnell Estate in Glasgow today with her kids Knox and Vivienne. The Jolie-Pitts are together in Scotland at the moment as Brad continues working on World War Z in the city’s center, which has been made over to look like Philadelphia.

    Fans seeing stars as huge case of Pitt fever hits city

    IN recent days a contagious, non-discriminating virus has spread rapidly throughout Glasgow: Brad Pitt fever.

    No-one, it seems, is immune. As filming for Hollywood blockbuster World War Z got under way in the city’s Cochrane Street yesterday there was only one question on everyone’s lips: “Have you seen Brad yet?”

    By early morning the area surrounding the set throbbed with activity. Crew members strode around efficiently clutching clipboards, barking orders into walkie talkies.

    Coffee was being drunk by the gallon. A couple of awe-struck looking extras stood nervously smoking cigarettes as technicians wandered past carrying gaffer tape and spaghetti-like bundles of cabling.

    On the corner of George Square a young woman was rooted to the spot, speaking excitedly into a mobile phone. “I cannae believe it,” she shrieked. “I am just metres away fae where Brad Pitt is standing right noo. Naw, he’s on the other side of the building, I cannae actually see him. I dinnae care, though. It’s a dream come true.”

    Well, almost. Knowing Pitt is in the vicinity wasn’t enough. I wanted to see him with my own eyes.

    “Is Brad Pitt on set?” I casually asked a man straightening up a pile of American road signs. He regarded me with a weary look before turning back to what he was doing.

    Having spotted a man dressed as a US police officer complete with leather motorcycle jacket, knee-high boots and jodhpurs, I sidled up next to him. He refused to be drawn when asked if he had seen Brad.

    Unperturbed, I looked around the growing melee. “Has anyone seen Brad Pitt?” I said to no-one in particular. “Who?” asked one crew member. I skulked off as everyone guffawed with laughter.

    After a few laps around Glasgow City Chambers, finally a breakthrough. A friend agreed to let me pop by his Merchant City flat overlooking the set. Prime Pitt-watching real estate, below the window lay a perfect Philadelphia street scene depicting the intersection of Broad Street and John F Kennedy Boulevard.

    Tightly packed rows of yellow taxis, vans and cars bearing Pennsylvania number plates filled the road two and three deep.

    Halfway along the street stood a black pick-up with a tarpaulin-covered trailer on the back. From the frenzy of worker bee-like activity, it was evident Pitt was behind. Bingo.

    “Rolling, rolling, live,” boomed a man with a megaphone.

    The extras began moving around, crossing the road, meandering along the pavement, pretending to window shop amid the faux traffic jam scene. Seconds later a police motorcycle screeched past.

    My mobile phone buzzed with text alerts as “Brad-spotters” nearby swapped information about rumoured sightings on social networking sites.

    By late morning a crowd several hundred strong lined the barriers where Cochrane Street meets George Square, camera phones held aloft. Teenagers, mothers, husbands, babies and grandmothers. Every so often came a collective gasp, fevered neck craning, followed by disappointed mutterings.

    At the front stood friends Gillian Forgan, 38, a personal assistant and Esther McAusland, 20, a receptionist who had devoted their lunch hour to trying to catch a glimpse of Pitt. “It’s so exciting. I have seen pretty much all of Brad’s movies,” said Ms Forgan from Hamilton. “I would probably be overwhelmed if I saw him in the flesh. I don’t think I would be able to speak, just stand and stare with my mouth open.”

    “I would scream,” added Ms McAusland from Rutherglen. “I’m hoping to pop down in my lunch hour most days on the off chance of seeing him.”

    Retired care worker Mary Clarke, 62, from Bishopton said she planned to dedicate the next fortnight to Brad-spotting. “I would go daft if I saw him. I’m a huge fan. I can’t believe he is here,” she said.

    Back on my window perch overlooking the set I concentrated unwaveringly on the tarpaulin-covered trailer until spots danced before my eyes.

    Then came movement. A leg. An arm. Then the ruggedly handsome jaw and tousled golden locks of Pitt appeared into view. As he walked across the set, cast and crew alike parted like the red sea in front of him.

    For a few short seconds he was almost within touching distance, albeit from behind glass like a rare species of animal in the zoo.

    A sleek-looking chauffeur driven car purred onto set, the rear windows blacked out. Pitt climbed inside. Then he was gone. And my fever broke.

    New thread, same old troll with another new name, talking the same old tired shite. Yet she claims I’m here all the time when she beats me to every new thread – no matter what time of day it is. I’d point out the hypocrisy to her but as is always the case with hypocrites – my point would go buzzing over her head and fall like a ton of bricks at her size 14 boats…
