Brad Pitt: 'Daily Show' Interview!

Brad Pitt sits down for an interview for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Wednesday (February 1) in New York City.

The 48-year-old actor chatted about his Oscar nomination and getting his movie Moneyball made.

Brad also talked a bit about another one of his Oscar nominated films, The Tree of Life, but Jon quickly told Brad that he had seen the film five times and could not understand it!

In case you missed it, check out Brad on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia‘s February issue.

    Brad is fine- I agree that he is handsome and does good in the world and seems like a generally good person. but I don’t feel that he is worshippable like others do!! Jon Stewart is pretty handsome and so smart-! I like him a lot. Brad is fine but he looks tired. spent. And I don’t blame him. angelina seems to have unstoppable energy but does Brad ever get to rest? Anyway- I think it must be tiring for him being put on a pedastal like he is a greek god or something. I also think he is an excellent actor- but he is not other worldly- he is human and not to be worshipped!

  • Lila

    ANgelina, on the other hand- she is other worldly. I mean- her beauty is so far beyond that of other people! She is like- wow- you look at her and just stop in your tracks.

    I really want Brad to win but I got a feeling the dude from the artist will snag it oh well Brad will not kiss anybody’s as s(only angie’s hehe)just to get that award.Anyways Brad has everything a man could ask for beautiful children,a hot career,wonderful life and he is with an amazing woman who he is in love with Angie.Still keeping my fingers crossed.

  • dawne

    As far as I can tell Brad’s career has hit the stratosphere whether he wins the statue or not. HW has a habit of overlooking great actors so he would be in good company.

    @angierocks:
    Remember who is behind The Artist –Harvey Weinstein, there is a reason they call him The God. Lots of politics behind we just don’t know. People in the show biz know it.

    @JP Love:

    Brad has done that in a lot of places he has shot int since 2001.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Had to look up Stan Lee because he is the cutest thing with Brad and Angelina.
    .
    He is 89 years of age, born December 28, 1922. WOW!
    .
    He has been married to the SAME woman, Joan, since 1947! WOW!
    .
    And he is very talented: Writer, editor, publisher, producer, actor, reality show host
    .
    Here is some of his work:
    Fantastic Four
    Hulk
    Spider-Man
    Thor
    Iron Man
    Doctor Strange
    X-Men
    Daredevil
    And – Captain America
    .

    This guy is a legend. And he is so cute and has the sweetest smile! And I LOVE he has been with his wife forever.
    I hope Brad and Angelina will have the same long lasting love and even longer as Stan Lee and his wife. Adorable!

  • Love the JoliePitts

    I also love what Stan says about Brad and Angelina -
    .
    “Seriously, they’re one of the nicest couples in Hollywood — next to Joanie and me, of course!”
    .
    And he said “I’m happily married” – and then Brad relaxed :) Too cute!

  • MIMI

    @OH MY:
    Brad Pitt is beyond beautiful and he is effing funny too. I think he is funnier than Jon Stewart, Stewart humor is a bit pretentious and forced, Brad’s humor is smooth and natural, not to mention Brad is effortlessly cool, irresistibly charming. He is the coolest guy.

    I do think that Brad won’t win the Oscar this year. Not because his performance wasn’t oscar worthy – because clearly it is and that’s why he’s been nominated. But because many people think like Jonah and Jon Stewart have admitted to: “Brad Pitt, I don’t want to like you. I feel inferior next to you. YOU have everything. great wife, amazing career, Amazing looks, highly intelligence, amazingly nice, amazing children, great acting talent, amazing taste in movies (produced at least 3 best picture nominees in the last 7 years) amazing every fvcking thing! And now, you think we are going to give you an oscar when you make us feel so fvucking bad and inferior about ourselves. NO Fuvccking way!!!!”

  • a zimbo

    Woooow he does look like Tristan days….does he ever age yum. I agree with Lylian he and Ange are fortunate ,they literally have it all and all those haters wont give Brad what he deserves but that doesnt matter cause Paul Newman , Gary Oldman have shamelessly not received one but Clooney and BRODY have ..Brad is and always be the standard really ,even Jay Z said he was the b l a c k Brad Pitt come on …Lucky gorj Angie *sigh*

  • woman spanish

    Good morning to all fans!
    Yesterday I finally see Moneyball. I was a little scared because I loved TOL, but I must say it’s a fantastic movie and I Brad’s performance is stunnig. The theater was full, and that in Spain the baseball is not popular. The power of Mr. Pitt!!!

  • lylian

    @woman spanish:
    .
    >>>>>>>>>
    .
    Wow! I just checked Box Office Mojo. TOL did $54,303,319 globally (41m international and 13.3m US market. Production budget 32m. Not sure if TOL will cover all costs, but I guess after DVD sales etc, it should come close to breaking even.
    .
    Moneyball has as made US$31m internationally and $75.6m in the US for a total of $106.6m at 29/1. From what I can see, it’s not opened in some countries yet. I wonder if the foreign BO for Moneyball will exceed TOL. You’d think so given that Moneyball is far more accessible than TOL. I’ve seen Moneyball and I think it’s great. Moneyball did great in Japan – already more than 11m.
    .
    Production budget of 50m, so, I think that means it’s profitable and will be more so in the DVD sales. Plan B is a producer so it gets a % of DVD sales and licenses I assume. And I also assume Brad gets a back end as he probably took a pay cut to do money ball.

  • woman spanish

    Hi Lylian!
    I think Moneyball will exceed TOL foreing. This week also opened in Germany and there is still some open market, and as you say Moneyball is more accessible than TOL

  • Alexandre

    He’s highlighting his hair back to blonde now…thank goodness! Wasn’t feeling his darker locks. I know their handlers like Brad and his girlfriend to look alike in the hair color department, but darker doesn’t suit him at all.

  • Simone

    lol! Wonder how long he practiced his interview answers? You guys know the release an outline of questions to both parties before the interview takes place, right? There are no improv style interviews with Brad Pitt or Angie Jolie allowed. Their not the only ones who do this now, but I think it’s hilarious to watch interviews and see these guys act like they don’t know what’s coming.

  • lylian

    @Simone:
    .
    >>>>>>>>>
    .
    Really? Questions and answers are prepared in advance? I don’t think so sweetie.
    .
    But if they are, then at least Brad and Angelina answer their questions knowledgeably and intelligently. That’s quite unlike some other celebrities who manage to sound stupid and uninformed each time they are interviewed. Take Jennifer Aniston for example: For her turkey baster movie for example, she didn’t even know how artificial insemination is done – she’s that stupid and uninformed though it was a movie about a woman who goes for AI to get pregnant!!
    .
    LOL!

  • cs

    @simone
    If that’s the case What’s wrong with JA? since she can’t seem to string two sentences together while being interviewed..
    Were the questions were chewed up by the dogs?
    If I closed my eyes I would think I’m listening to a teenage Valley Girl..

  • Cute

    Amy Pascal obviously adores both Angie & Brad; not just as huge moneymakers for Sony but also as friends. I like both of these pictures a lot.

    This one is so cute, the way she is staring at them. LOL

  • LMAO

    What’s with the saintly practice of feeding your kids Coke in the morning to get them out of bed??? “oh such wonderful parents”, my a$$. Brad admitted they do. When are you freakish weirdos going to admit they are strung out parents, and don’t know what goes on behind their saintly doors??

  • wfb

    Wow, trolls like the media doesn’t have a sense of humor no? If you actually believe what Brad said, there’s this bridge I want to sell……

    Part of Brad’s interview about the kids.
    “Yep, Angie’s the organizer in the family. It can definitely get get crazy, but I like a little chaos. I really like it. In fact I miss it when it is quiet. When I get the first moment of peace, I go, ‘oh man, this is great’. And then within 30 minutes, I miss them, I miss the crazy running back and forth, and the sounds in the house with someone fighting, and someone banging into yhe wall, someone calling for Dad’. It’s cozy”.

  • love

    @Love the JoliePitts: Aw. You’re so sweet. Thank you. Muah!

  • Golddustwoman

    Heads up for two upcoming events:
    Brad will be at the Oscar nominees luncheon on Monday.
    Also, next Sunday I will be at the Baftas. Last year I was lucky enough to get lost and ended up, quite unexpectedly, in the VIP section! Let’s hope I get lost again and come up against Brad and Angelina! Hopefully you guys will be interested in any news I bring back from the event.

  • dawne

    Brad and Angie are so suited to having a large family. When they met, it must have been so clear they wanted the same things in life from humanitarianism, quality career choices and a tight family that stays together at all times despite the demands of their joint careers. Then when he also realized this empowered, smart woman was as gorgeous inside and she is on the outside, it is so apparent why he couldn’t go back to his unpurpose driven existence. It was clearly stale dated due to his personal growth as a man. A man who was raised by a woman who loved children. Men marry their mothers, and Ticky was as about as polarized from his mother as it gets. Needy, vain and neurotic didn’t do it for him. If she had the same abiities as Angie to chew gum and walk it might have been a different story; but fame for Angie was never a priority and it was the driving force for Ticky

    Angie has achieved global fame because she focused on doing the right things despite all, where Ticky tried to manipulate fame while doing all the wrong things…Rachel still riding on her hair cut. So glad the universe unfolded as it should; big lesson here for Ticky, her hens and enablers and budding starlets. Angie and Brad are unquestionably the benchmark for all things good from career choices, to heart, to family. And they are humble. They are not imposters, they know from what they speak; they do the hard work, the research, the discipline it takes to excel.

    It is no accident they are enjoying the fame they are. It has been earned.

    Thank-you. I hope I have lots to report!
    I saw them when they are at the Baftas for Button and Changeling – the crowd went ballistic with excitement. I was inside the building and saw it on the monitors – everyone inside the building stopped what they were doing and watched. No other star, I repeat, NO other star got that kind of reaction inside or outside the Royal opera house.
    This year I will be back on the red carpet too so I hope I get to ask a couple of questions . I’m excited!!

  • busted

    @Golddustwoman:

    I have to say I am jealous. Would love to see them in person. I’ll be checking to back to read your account. Please give tons of details.

  • http://computer Susan

    Brad and Angie can multi-task, with all the running around he was doing in NYC he still found time to see Tilda Swinton’s boyfriend art work.

  • Golddustwoman

    @busted – I will do! I’ll try and post as soon as I can after the event and if I can, during it too. However, because the star level this year will be high – Streep, Clooney etc and our twosome of-course, the place will be buzzing. it will be difficult to get to one of the computers inside the media centre to report. So I may have to wait until I get home. But, don’t worry, I will give you ALL the juicy details!

  • Saffron

    @ Golddustwoman

    I’m jealous too! Hope you have a fantastic time & let us know everything!!!

    @Golddustwoman:
    I am so envy you are going to Baftas, Is there a livestream for Baftas?

  • yap

    So many Brad and Angelina red carpet appearances to come. I can’t wait.

  • Just a Lurker

    According to cross-eyed Lainey, Brad briefly discussed Gwyneth Paltrow in relation to Se7en on Inside The Actors Studio, Maniston did not come up at all.

  • Golddustwoman

    E entertainment will cover the red carpet but I don’t know if the awards ceremony is shown live outside the UK. I will get details of attendees closer to the time. Will be a shame if Angelina isn’t there but very often there are last minute changes so, who know, she may turn up.

    Thanks to everyone who has commented above (and in advance to anyone who might comment following this post).
    I will keep you updated with any news as I get it.

  • cute

    @Golddustwoman:
    Thanks for all. I think Angie will be at Baftas.
