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.

    The whiny hens are back. What’s the matter hens, disappointed in the Rags. “Jen’s team went ballistic”. How about Jen’s team spun an interview so that Baby Jane can get her extra 15 minutes and promote McGreedy for hire. Too bad McGreedy did not follow the script and looks like a douche in most of the photo ops. Just goes to show how PR and Media do the spin dance for the over the hill whiny ex sitcom star. Ole boy Huvane had the rags and paid off media on speed dial. Too funny. Maybe Baby Jane can cash in with a 15 minutes role in a rom com playing the aging cougar mom of a twenty something.

    Your morning Phil: Moneyball

    Brad Pitt provides the best explanation I’ve seen for why the limited success of Beane’s reliance on statistical analysis and unconventional means shouldn’t be a reason not to see the movie. He says “Moneyball’’ is more like films that were made in the 1970s, including “The French Connection,’’ “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’’ and “All the President’s Men.’’

    “In scripts today, someone has a big epiphany, learns a lesson, then comes out the other side different,’’ Pitt told Sports Illustrated. “In these older films I’m talking about, the beast at the end of the movie was the same beast in the beginning of the movie. What changed was the world around them, by just a couple of degrees. Nothing monumental. I think that’s true about us. We fine-tune ourselves, but big change is not real.”


    Look at “Moneyball’’ not as a movie celebrating an accomplishment, like most sports movies, but one that’s about the struggle. That’s something we can all relate to.

    It’s got a great cast. Michael Lewis tells a great story. Go see it.

    They never left. If they had spent as much time in school as they’ve spent here the last 5 1/2 years, then maybe they wouldn’t be complete and utter morons. Then again, education can’t change bad genetics. It’s medically impossible for microencephalics to have an IQ above “sand box”.

    You’re the idiot and the ugly one at that. I pity your parents for making an individual turning out to be such a failure who is so jealous of another woman’s love her man gives to her.

    Maniston ispired dullness, depression, boredom, probably suicide thoughts too and now the world has heard it from the man she once married that life with her is miserable and unbearable. Hell she said once that she wouldn’t live with her neuroitic self either. She is poison

  • cee

    He obviously does not feel his first marriage was a real marriage more like a public relation stunt. So all this talk about marriage is silly but people like to bring it up. If Angie wanted to get married be sure that Brad would marry her tomorrow. They have both said they feel like they are married already and are both happy. Wonder what the tabs will try to spout this week since Brad has been out speaking the truth. It will be all Angie bashing of course to appease the hens. Oh and if the hens were happy with Ansitons new beau they wouldn’t be hanging around here. They know what we know her new beau is a fake and not a very nice guy. Just think 14 years and Heidi and then kicks her to the curb for the publicity.

    I am so glad Brad told the truth about how dull MANiston is. Brad deserves someone who’s exciting, challenges him, supports him, shares the same interests and hobbies. Not that superficial yoga obsess leather face ho.

    Fans please lets go see moneybal because its a really good movie

  • bdj

    Baby Jane must have a lot of money invested in GreasySpot. Ole freeloader never had it so good. John Peeboy Mayer got more love from the hens. McGreedy better hold on until the contract ends, never utter a word about ole coke and toke and hope the h*ll he gets out unscathed or with 6th writer on some movie credit.

  • lurker

    time to ignore the tabloid troll and post good reviews about moneyball

  • Jen MANSTEALIN

    Yeah Brad is jealous of a D list skinny dwarf who doesn’t always wear underwears under his skinny jeans, exposing his flat pale ass, who is granted with a massive receding line at 40 only (see brad at 40 in Troy), a massive bald spot at the tip of his head,, an eagle nose and who weight less than 1/50 of his wealth.
    .
    A guy who is barely known outside the US at that (where Brad has 20 times more fans than in the US), even lesser than the HAIRY grammy award winning Urinator himself who is also 20 times richer than the Dwarf Dracula.

    Uh, genius…you always need to be told the obvious. Having been married to Ticky is WHY Brad believes in marriage equality for all. Heterosexuals shouldn’t have to suffer their romantic mistakes alone, dammit. Gay people deserve the riot to make collosal mistakes and marry the wrong person at least once, marry beneath themselves, marry for all the wrong reasons and marry because their SO is pressuring them into it and their having a mid-30′s life crisis and figure, “Eh, what the hell. The worst that could happen is that I dump her and she stalks my new woman and our ‘soccer team’ woorth of kids for the rest of our lives…”

    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.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    .
    I have to admit that all the accolades are starting to freak me out because this is the exact same kind of buzz Porgie had for Michael Clayton…then along came DDL and There Will Be Blood. The difference though is that Brad won’t be making the rounds at every HW gathering between now an the end of December trying to schmooze, sorry, I meant “charm” of course, people into voting for him. It’s way too early to predict Moneyball or Brad as a sure thing.

    BTW, I forgot to say – I think multiple GG nodes is a sure thing…just not the Oscar nod. If he gets a SAG nom, then the Oscar nom is a lot more likely.

    ROTFLMAO. So now you’re believing US Lies Weakly? Uh…didn’t they just say Brad and Angie are getting married? And now both Brad and Angie have said they’re NOT getting married? I wouldn’t be surprised if Ticky’s people “reached out to Brad” (which I theorized the other day)…just as they “reached out” to US and handed them this story on a silver platter the same way Huvsy has handed them dozens of other stories…only to deny them to Peeps later on…
    .
    US is soooooo predictable. Looks like they read all the online theories surrounding the “clarification” and chose a couple that would work well as a cover. Brad’s jealous that Ticky has another new man…when he knows their shelf-life is roughly 9 months to 1 year? LOL. All he has to do is go about his life and in a few months one of his friends will be calling to tell him she got dumped again.

    It’s nice he is getting buzz, I agree with you. It’s way to early. It should be a very interesting award season.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    I agree. The article they posted yesterday saying Brad wanted to clarify his comment was most read. So, they posted the article again so they get more hits. Let’s face it. They need Brad & Angie to sell more magazine.

  • Passing Through

    Since the troll posted that US cover I decided I go look at the rest of the tab covers and I’m ROTFLMAO.

    notOK cover says, “Brad publicly apologizes to Jen”. I must’ve missed that…He “clarified” but didn’t retract and didn’t say he was sorry even with claiming Ticky is “not dull” and is “still a friend”.
    .
    Star mag has suprised me by NOT putting Brad and Ticky on the cover. Instead they have Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds “secretly” getting married in Texas…while US has him moving on to Olivia Wilde..who’s apparently bent on making up for all the lost peenage of having married at 19…Closet Boy, Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake and now Ryan Reynolds. I think I may have missed a few guys, but close enough. I guess Ryan and Sandra’s wedding is so secret that he’s pretending to date other woman to cover it up…
    .
    Lies & Shite is another mag that’s taken a different tact this week – they’re exploiting Suri Cruise cuz she’s “Trapped in Tom and Katie’s Warped World.” No shite, Sherlock. They do have a sidebar though that screams, “WHY BRAD’S JEALOUS OF JEN”. If you ask me it’s prolly cuz Brad is pissed that he doesn’t have short stubby legs and tween jeans and a receding hairline. Oh wait…he’s Brad Pitt…my bad…
    .
    Also, gotta admit…I’m kinda proud of OuttaTouch because they’ve delivered some funny shite this week. They DO have Brad on the cover…but it’s Brad and Angie with a little pic of Ticky & Squiggy to the left above the main picture. There’s no reason for Angie to be on the cover (except the mag sells better when she is) because the deck reads, “JEN’S MAN THREATENS BRAD! Justin calls Brad a ‘wimp’ and warns, ‘Shut your mouth!” BBBBWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
    .
    Squiggy doesn’t even come up to Brad’s chin. That’s going to be the shortest (pun intended) fight evah…that’s if Brad’s fist doesn’t slide off the oil on Squiggy’s face that’s dripping from his hair. Question: Can tiny men in skinny jeans and a 16 year-old goth boy’s punk music t-shirt who aren’t wearing ankle-length black trench coats and toting an AK-47 assault rifle REALLY be taken seriously when they threaten you? Discuss it amongst yourselves and let me know.
    .
    Of course Angie doesn’t get off scott-free because below the headline they have, “PLUS: How Angelina is still fueling the fire.” Yeah, right…it’s Angie’s fault because OuttaTouch can’t hold Brad responsible for his own messes without blaming Angie for them. The last time I checked Brad was 11 1/2 years older than Angie and a big boy. It’s HIS mess and it’s not like Angie forced him to marry Ticky and waste 6 1/2 years of his life on her dead end ass.

  • lurker

    it will be awesome if brad gets nominated for both TOL and moneyball,he really had a solid year and i wish him the best,this year there were many good performances it should be a good season,hopefully sad spook and mr dwarf will not be there
