Brad Pitt Talks Marriage Equality With Ellen DeGeneres!

Brad Pitt Talks Marriage Equality With Ellen DeGeneres!

Brad Pitt stares thoughtfully at the audience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday (September 22).

The 47-year-old actor talked with host Ellen DeGeneres about his partner Angelina Jolie.

“We find our time. We carve out Mommy, Daddy time… It’s called a hotel. You got to get out of this house. You got to leave,” Brad said about finding mommy daddy time for him and Angie.

“I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this county had the right to get married…We live in this great country that is about freedom. It is defined by our freedom and equality and yet we allow this discrimination to go on everyday and that’s not what we’re about,” Brad said about marriage equality.

“That’s not what makes us great. Until that is reversed. I just don’t get it. “It’a make’a no sense to me” (in a italian accent),” Brad concluded.

    Bradley has turned in to such a loving/caring/touchy-feely guy ever since he met with Angie. Love does that to you. You become all gooey and sweet and giving when you are happy at home.

    You might be right.

    As Brad said, happiness is overrated but he’s a satisfied man. Nice to hear that he and mommy make time for each other. When you have Angelina in your life, you’d have to be a moron not to be satisfied. And vice verse for Angie. They’re not apart from each other very often, so they must be missing each other. I hope Brad gets back home to his family soon!


    Okay, I never saw the movie [b]Bridesmaids[/b] until tonight, and I am LMAO…it was brilliant…for anyone who’s seen it, I think you know why a JP fan would love it…to me, it’s obvious Wiig and company are skewering Jennifer Aniston. Wiig’s character is a neurotic, jealous lonely insecure shallow fool – the only way she differs from real life maniston, is she actually grows and changes for the better, shakes off the neurosis and the low self esteem at the end. Melissa McCarthy was too funny for words. I got curious about the reviews on this one — I knew they were all sterling, but I was wondering if any critics got the OBVIOUS Jennifer Aniston diss…and lo and behold, they HAD. Describing Wiig’s character as perfectly coifed insecure jealous passive aggressive, they allude to Aniston in a couple…bwahahaha. The casting of Wiig’s character’s nemesis with the clasically beautiful Rose Byrne (Brad’s love interest in Troy) was also a sign – Rose makes you think of Angelina in this film…and Wiig when she looks at Rose’s character just SEETHES with jealousy! It was spot on. Hahahaha. I can’t believe I’m just now watching this.

    Don’t you worry about us. We’ll still have our lives and the love of our family. Worry about your own little self-centered self .

  • http://tulipwawa justadream

    good for them..dont care what people say mr pitt…they are nothing to you..all the best for you..

  • Observer2


    IF it ever happens, we’ll be fine. Unlike you, you have been doing what you say we’ll be doing for the 7 past years. Waiting for a couple to break up with small children. Everyday, you wake up and go, is today, the day? And then you live with your disappointment. Every freakin’ day. Sucks to be you. But, than, it always really has, hasn’t it nutter butter?

  • WOW

    Brad and Angie the two lovebirds are so hot for each other. Didn’t they just have mommy and daddy time before Brad press tour for his movie? Love this interview, can’t wait to see the entire interview.

  • Observer2

    You’d read a possible breakup if they were fvcking right in front of you.

    She said, if the law passed that everyone could get married, it seems that they’d get married the next day, he says, it seems. Then he said that the kids were putting the heat on. And Ellen says, you’ll hold out right? And he said, he didn’t know what the future holds. Meaning, they may wait or they may not wait.

    But, spin, Linda Blair, spin. Maybe, you’ll get lucky and the pea soup won’t hit you in the face. But, than, you’ve never been that lucky.

    I love when the troll(s) wait until the wee hours to post. Like, they’re afraid or something. LOL.

  • Liana

    I wanna a relationship like Brad and Angelina’s, it is smoking hot.

  • Corp

    I never thought Angelina Jolie could be a house wife type,boy I was wrong. Brad Pitt really changed her.

  • Rose

    He said he does not know what the future holds, what’s wrong with that? Brad and Angie were both married before and are divorced from their former partners. He is living a more happy life than probably most married couple. To him, marriage does not always mean happy and content life. Go read his Parade article that caused all those heads to explode and you will see how he felt in his marriage. He tried it before and Brad said he was bored and unfulfilled. Now he is content with family, which is a bigger commitment to him than marriage, however, he did not say he would never marry Angie. Let him live his life while we live our life and do what’s best for us. Stop trying to tell others how to live their life, it’s none of our business.

    I have to say I don’t think Brad really changed her in that way. I think the overall perception of her was WRONG. Yes she did crazy young things. But she never broke the law, got arrested, no mug shots nothing that you see from others. Everyone says how sweet and nice she is. That didn’t happen because of Brad.. Brad just saw the truth of who and what she is and was and didn’t let the gossip world and hags keep him from going after what he wanted. And how great that he followed his heart.

    The funny as H E L L thing is watching people like you spend years and years hoping that a couple breaks up and then year after year looking like a complete loser fool. Spending all your time tracking people you don’t like. That is more PATHETIC than fans on any day of the week. YOUR comment show how absolutely insane you are.

    STARS have fans.. ATHLETES have fans… SINGERS/BANDS… have fans that follow them.. nothing unnatural about that.. but you and the other like you obsessed over two people you don’t like. the amount of time you spend on their thread reading what the fans post..

    Now that Brad’s becoming more open about his relationship and such, I’m sure he’ll be doing “The Actor’s Studio with James Lipton” within the next six months. He was asked to do it other times, but didn’t feel he had accomplished enough to go on there. I bet now he will. And he is a HOT guy for sure. I love his hair like this, and with his scruff and messy look. There’s only been a few instances that i can remember that he looked ridiculous and one of those times was when he was sporting that little dumb mustache and the short hair for Inglorious Bastards. It was very hard to look at him with that look, he had absolutely no sex appeal during the filming of that movie.

  • “Brad The Family Guy”

    ….Only to sell a movie to a domestic audience that identifies with baseball. Total HO .

  • lurker

    hopefully someone taped the today show interview

  • lurker

    dull ones have to hold on to straws to make them feel better

  • Brad

    ” This country is SO GREAT that I plan to live in Southern France”


    Money Ball is getting more and more buzz from the professional ones (Oscar nod ) and the people on Twitter who have seen it.
    I am not a sport film fan, but i think this movie will do great and i am interesting to see how much it will do abroad since baseball is mostly ‘american’ and the only reason people may want to see that movie will be because of Pitt being an international asset with a huge wordly fanbase.

  • Fun To Watch….

    Brad and Ang say anything to try and cash-in before they fall apart and it’s all over. Desperate.

  • http://justjared Mjforever

    Wasn’t he MARRIED at some point? He thinks we suffer amnesia ? Strange he now care for equality


    Most pre-release positive reviews are the product of studio influence . Corporations rule the media these days and independent thought is verbotten.

    I agree with most of your post except this -” he never said he will never marry Angie”. That makes it seem that the decision to marry Angie or not is all Brad’s, and that Angie is just waiting around for him to ask her to marry. Brad has ALWAYS said “Angie AND I will consider marrying when everyone can”, ergo it’s a joint decision. I am not picking on you because I have seen other fans post similar comments, I just wish it would stop. Don’t do the rags and hate blogs work for them. I am 100% sure IF Angie wanted to get married tomorrow, Brad will be right there with her, happy as a lark.

  • lurker

    so far moneyball is 93% on rotton tomatoes and 100 % top critics

  • Brad

    “When I can legally wed my hairpiece I’ll marry Angelina”

  • lurker

    brads marriage to the dull one was a fraud so i will not call it a marriage get that hen

  • lurker

    from sasha stone awardsdaily tweet
    Brad Pitt will be nominated for both Best Picture of the Year and Best Actor with Moneyball. And if it wins, he wins the Oscar for prod.

  • Brad

    “What do you unsophisticated idolizing hillbillies want me to say? . I’ll say it. Just see my movies and give me your F-ing money”

  • Parade

    My take on the marriage issue. I think Angie is the one that does not want to marry. She does not feel the need. She already feels married to Brad.
    She does not want to make it official just because other people think she should. Brad would marry her in a second if she wanted that. Well, he married the dull one! Whoever thinks he would not want to marry the Jolie must be kidding.

  • plez


    Keep with the one sentence comments. Otherwise your stpidity shows more than normal. Studios are own by corporations.
    I remember when the trolls were fun and posted interesting comments.
    On another note both Angelina and Brad said have they are no getting married but the subject is on the table. Don’t fall for the trolls trying to play one against the other.

    I’m confused by your definition of “housewife”. In general terms it means a married woman who stays at home looking after not just the kids, but the entire house, which means cooking, cleaning, doing her own laundry, grocery shopping, watching the kids, possibly volunteers for charity workk, getts the kids to and from school and to after-school activities, etc., who’s whole life revolves around her husband, family and friends and who doesn’t work outside of the home and has no source of income of her own and relies on her husband to be the “bread winner”. In other words – a slave with a few legal rights. Perhaps you’d care to explain what your definition of a “housewife” is because while I’m sure Agie does a few of these things when she’s home, I highly doubt she’s doing all of them, all day long to the exclusion of anything else. Ergo…Agnie’s not a “houswife”.

  • Soledad

    We have been waiting for Brad to speak up about his life and we are really enjoying it. The tabloids and the dull one have had their days. Now we the fans are enjoying the truth. No more lies to spin, boring.
    What took you so long…Brad?

  • louise

    He’s a jerk! Angie is not that wonderful. Just when fans started to forgive him, he makes that statement about Jennifer. Why do you all keep picking with her? She is wonderful! Whatever y’all throw at her she continues to be a lady. Jerk ! I’m being a lady, cause I want to call him something else.

  • stpidty— are own

    God you should be euthanized plez
    Media is supposed to be independent you little fascist .
    Remember to take a right before you march right into “the showers”.

  • NO shiiit

    I really didn’t like how he said it. I hate his chicken ways but he always has nature of that. I probs go check money ball next thursday, I heared nothing but good things. Only for that I do it because he is so dissapointing on taliking about Maniston like that something he never said to Angie out of chikenhood he is sporting forever. I know he has not choice sometimes but it doesn’t have to be that much. May be his talk is how much he chickened.
    If Angie is still with this him she must agreed for everything so I give him slack only for that and for that reason only personally.
    But I personally demand when Angie gives interview, I don’t want her to say shiit about him except we go out crave mommy and daddy time together and the normal stuff never. Angie Don’t say what he don’t say about you. You are losing your image because of him. NOT GOOD. I know LOVE IS GREAT and NOTHING IS LIKE IT. BUT BUT BUT your carrier is important. Remember any guy come and go even the one you feel the most. But if your carrier it takes dive, it might never survive. Listen to me when I talk Angie lol. seriously.

  • levis
