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!

    To all Jolie/Pitts fans let!s enjoy Angie and Brad at the Red carpet appearances and awards shows. This first 2 months of the year , it may not be the same again next year for they don!t have movies to promote especially Angie.. Brad Pitt is the undergog in this Oscar race . underdog always win, let!s hope and pray for that….Win or lost he!s still the best for us, so let!s enjoy and avoid the negativity, and think positively for both of them .(Angie and Brad)….

    If you look at the video when Brad left Insider the Actors Studio, the crowd was waiting for him to sign autographs, I don’t think George Clooney got such a huge crowd nor any other stars. And the crowd at The Daily Show, they needed the polices to interfere.

    @jonah: I think Brad really likes Jonah as a friend but helping him isn’t the word that I would use. Jonah is already an estalished in the comedic field. Honestly and I know people are gonna get upset,I think he is using Jonah. It’s like all of a sudden this is his best friend and he and Jonah do all these things together and hang out. BP knows JH fan base is growing and he is loved by lots young people. Lets get this straight he knows this business well and politicking is a part of it.
    He has been standoffish and not granting interviews to people on the red carpet in the past and I think he is going in a different direction now because most people don’t care if he speaks to them or not.
    Because Angie will be the reason he doesn’t talk. Like she said in one interview she is the reason for the cane. She gets the blame for everything. Now it’s her fault he wants to bring up marriage all of a sudden and she doesn’t want to talk about it.
    You see how much he brings her name and the kids up now in interviews. That use to be off limits. It’s all the same. Running a race.
    By the way I think GC kinda new he was gonna lose the Sag because he arrivedfor the red carpet kinda late and he wasn’t ranting and raving a lot and he didn’t look too happy in the post interviews.

    If you “noticed” I just started using a new name, you should also have “noticed” I gave a thorough explanation for why I changed my name. There is no hidden agenda. It is there in black and white for all who read my posts to see.
    .
    Asking you to provide proof of your strong accusation of another fan is not a rant by ANY stretch of the imagination. It is merely a “request.”
    I think if you had any proof you would have done so by now.
    .

    You accused a fan of “…pretending to be something she is not…” and you prefaced that comment with “…..Your madeup life is an obvious and blatant cry for atttention…..”
    .
    How do you know these things? Have you spent a lifetime with her, and you know her personally and so well you can say unequivocally she IS pretending and has a “made up life?”
    .
    NONE of us truly KNOW each other on this board and NONE of us can or should make such broad accusations without proof.
    .
    Let me make myself very clear, Strange. I am NOT accusing you of not being a fan. I cannot do that. I don’t know that you are not a fan.
    .
    All I am saying is what you accuse another fan of can just as easily be used to accuse you.
    .
    I am asking the fans to please, let us as fans, stop accusing each other of things we do not know for a fact. Fans should not have to prove they are fans. That is easily discernible by their posts.
    .
    Please, can we just trust each other until shown otherwise.
    .
    Strange, if you feel the need to respond, you may do so.
    .
    For me, I am done with this conversation.

  • for real

    Awardsdaily’s Sasha Stone once tweeted during DGA, she was watching Se7en, she is a huge David Fincher fan, she tweeted ‘surprised to see Brad’s wide range from Se7en to Fight Club to Moneyball,just he is too pretty’. I agree, if Brad was not as pretty as he is, he’d have win Oscars long ago for 12 Monkeys, Snatch, Jesse James and etc. I remember Benicio Del Toro said if Brad Pitt was not Brad Pitt, with the same performance as Brad did in Snatch, he’d have win an Oscar.

    Jen, we all know you changed your name and gave a very good explanation to why you did so.

    You are absolutely correct. But fans turning on fans is not anything new even IF they have no proof. I think it is quite juvenile and disruptive just like trolls. Why don’t they ask Jared to verify their suspicions? It would be almost acceptable if they were regulars here but they are not, so now we have to wonder about THEIR ‘hidden agenda’. Why disrupt a nice thread on a Sunday during a period all Jolie Pitt fans are having a great time this awards season?

    I will ignore and flag down haters and even if they are BA fans if they come here to attack other fans without any PROOF!

  • dawne

    I was reading the thread a few pages back and noted the small discussion of SK versus SS and the ‘legs’ which inevitably led to the recent sexiest woman alive debacle and it occured to me how hilarious Brad must have found that; here he was living with the sexiest woman alive evah and not hittin’ it for a long time before he left; and now he is insanely attracted to one of the ‘real’ sexiest women of all time and hittin’ it whenever he can. He would have known this was a ‘bought’ title and I’m sure when he complimented Goopy on her ‘lifestyle’ ..i.e. family and kids……..a clean life or whatever…………..Clini was right, he was stealth in omitting any such reference to his mouldy ex. He is clearly aware that she has still not had kids, is still playing the fame game, clearly has not worked at her craft.

    This is all reinforcing to him that he made the right decision at the right time. She is still living an unexplored, path of least resistance, self serving childless life. I’d eagerly undergo a double root canal if I could have heard his comment when on of his people informed him of the big controversy about Ticky’s ‘title.’

    Here we go again with “what you believe” as if what anyone believes is the same as knowing the truth and having the facts.
    .
    It is healthy to question what you don’t agree with, don’t believe and especially don’t understand. I see you do that all the time JuJu and I applaud your diligence in always asking for a link or for some proof of some kind and I am surprised that you, of all posters, did not ask for that in this instance.
    .
    I do not applaud one fan accusing another fan of not being a fan simply because what that fan said in their post does not agree with what the other fan believes.
    .
    And I am also surprised at you because you clearly misread my post.
    .

    At NO time did I accuse any fan of being a TROLL.
    .
    Here is my post so you can read it again. What I said is -
    .
    “Attacking another fan without any real proof is a TROLL tactic and it is being used too much on this board to try and divide the fans, etc.”
    .
    you are far too smart, Juju and far too intelligent to not understand what a TROLL tactic is and the difference between me saying that and calling a fan a Troll.

I can’t wait for them to grow up to see which one the parent has the most dominant presence in each one. One thing is clear, Shi is very beautiful right now. As Brad said he cannot imagine his life without his family.

    .
    The Baftas have become a landmark point on the Oscar trail. Normally I’d say whoever wins the Bafta is on target for Oscar. However, this year, my feeling is, the voters feel Dujardin deserves it but they have a Brit who has been overlooked for many years in Oldman so may feel some pressure to vote for him.
    So, imo the Bafta battle is between these 2.
    Oscar, however, I think is a VERY tight battle between Dujardin and Clooney.
    Brad’s time will come but not this year.
    .
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    .
    Eh…I’m gonna have to disagree with you, GWW. There aren’t enough cross-over members for the BAFTAs to have much impact on the Oscars or portend the outcome. They’re just just a blip on the Oscar radar and happen to be the last major award given out before the big show. Plus, the BAFTAs have tended to honor Brits over non-Brits (in all categories) regardless of whether or not they deserve the award. Because their awards happen after so many of the big awards have been given out in the US, the last few years the winners there have tended to fall in line with previous winners. The 4 exceptions in the last 10 years have been DD-L (Gangs of New York) over Adrien Brody, Bill Murray (Lost In Translation) over Sean Penn (Mystic River), Mickey Rourke over Sean Penn (Milk) and Colin Firth (A Single Man) over Jeff Bridges. otherwise they’re bang on with previous choices made by the CCAs, GGs or SAGs – DD-L, Colin Firth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitaker. If you go as far back as 2000 you’ll see the ridiculous choice of Jamie Bell in Billy Elliot over Russell Crow in Gladiator and in 2001 the make-up BAFTA to Russell Crowe for A Beautiful Mind instead of Denzel Washingtong for Training Day – and Denzel wasn’t even nominated for the BAFTA that year. Instead 3 Brits and Kevin Spacey were –
    .
    Jim Broadbent as John Bayley – Iris
    Ian McKellen as Gandalf – The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
    Kevin Spacey as Quoyle – The Shipping News
    Tom Wilkinson as Matt Fowler – In the Bedroom
    .
    As for this year’s front-runners – gotta disagree there, too, and stick with what I said yesterday – Porgie and Brad will split the votes and someone else will win – just like at the SAG awards. That doesn’t mean du Jardin is a front-runner in his own right – even with Harvey Weinstein blackmailing and bribing people behind the scenes (yeah, I said it). That means he or Oldman could win in a close race where he’s got just enough votes to out-distance the Brad-Porgie dogfight. Then again it could end up with Bechir winning simply because the other 4 cancelled each other out. I listed my reason Brad won’t win yesterday. I hope I’m wrong and he does win – but I think he’s enough of a factor in this race that his votes will cancel out Porgie in any race not being decided by the HFPA being bribed to give it to Porgie or movie critics splitting their votes for Brad between Moneyball and TOL.

  • To Jen

    @To Love the JoliePitts:

    You are absolutely right! We all know you are a great Brad and Angie fan. It is very troublesome that some fans thinks it is their job to become PI’s and decide who is a true fan and who isn’t; considering they are regulars at other blogs! They always use fake names too, so I guess next time we will ask Jared to verify what their “real” Jared moniker is before they start attacking BA fans just because they have a “feeling”.

    I think Brad is more interested in making movies that stand the test of time. If it happens to bring him Oscar glory, then fine, but he’d rather have movies that people are still talking about in 20, 30, 40 years. Porgie is the one who makes Oscar-bait films. I’ve said it before – look how many roles Brad has played that people remember not just the movie but the character’s name. In 10 years even cinephiles won’t be blathering on about The Descendents…but Moneyball is going to stick out because it’s a true story, based on a real event about a real man and decisions he made that changed the course of a sport forever. Plus it’s a damned good movie. Brad wants to make movies that say something and last. He keeps referencing Gene Hackman’s role as Popeye Doyle in The French Connection. Hackman did win the Oscar for that role but how many people remember that over the movie or the character? Not that many. Or Pacino as “Sonny” in Dog Day Afternoon? Everybody remembers the movie (and WHY Sonny was robbing the bank)…nobody remembers that Pacino lost out to Nicholson’s Randle Pactrick McMurphy that year. I know people who swear Pacino won Best Actor for Dog Day and are surprised that he didn’t. Then again, people are always surprised to find out that Brad hand’t been nommed for Best Actor before CCOBB. People think he was nommed for Fight Club, Se7en or Snatch – and are suprised that he wasn’t.

  • truth

    Brad is listed as appearing on the CBS Morning show. I will be so disappointed if he is interviewed by the hen Gayle King. Maybe it is an old interview with Charlie Rose because he is supposed to be in LA for the Oscar lncheon tomorrow.

    This one puzzling question I have and I know you can answer it.
    .
    I have heard so many times that Harvey Weinstein is really broke and has very empty pockets in Hollywood. Well, maybe “broke” for Harvey is not the same as “broke” for me. That I can understand.
    .
    But, if that is the case, how is this man able to finance and bribe and do so many deals in that industry? Why has he not gone away? And why is it he seems always to have so many movies up for Academy and GG Awards, and people calling him, “god.” So many stars referred to him and thanked him at the GGs. I am truly puzzled. This man must be the most amazing wheeler and dealer in all of Hollywood history.

A girl’s gotta eat, sure, but hot dogs are just as tasty as filet mignon – especially when you don’t have to ho yourself out for dinner. If you have so little respect for yourself that you’re willing to let a rich man use you for his own end, then fine…but don’t tweet dumb shite in support of him trying to front like you’re the love of his life, let yourself be pimped in Peeps getting ready for HIS award events or announce you’ve just signed wiht a major agency who wouldn’t give you the time of day prior to hooking up with him and him phoning them asking for a favor when you know your shelf life is slightly less than that of a brown banana at your local grocery store. And then at the end of your brief time as his arm candy start smack talking him and the “relationship” or desperately hooking up with any minor star who offers just to keep a tenuous hold on “fame” while the rest of the world snickers about you sold yourself to a man old enough to be your father and expect people to show you respect as a human being. That just ain’t gonna happen nor should she expect it to. God knows I certainly can’t be bothered to look deeper than that. If she was worried about people thinking well of her she’d never have hooked up with the 2nd most notorious “bachelor” on the planet. I’m sure Porgie thinks he’s above Hef…but he ain’t.

    Just last year Matt Damon said he still couldn’t believe that Brad wasn’t nommed for Snatch and he thought what Brad did in that movie was unbelievably difficult – being funny without being understandable AND doing physical comedy in the fight scenes on top of it.
    .
    Also, when it comes to Fight Club – at the time, people were just genuinely too appalled and freaked out by the movie to appreciate Brad’s performance or Ed Norton’s or Helena Bonham Carter’s. The critics slammed the movie pretty hard. I remember Brad telling the story about him and Ed Norton being at the Venice Film Festival, sitting in the very back laughing their asses off…and then realized they were the only 2 people in the whole theater who were laughing. Then they looked at each other and said, “Oh fvck! What have we done?” Or when he and Fincer read the British reviews and the one guy went on and on about the movie being “anarchic” and he and Fincher saying to each other, “Man, this is even better than we’d hoped for!” Needless to say – they’d have been shocked if they’d gotten any award attention at all – let alone the Oscars.

    Harvey Weinstein has more lives than dozen cats. In 2008 Harvey, his brother Bob and Weinstein Company were circling the drain and people were cackling with glee. They were severely over-extended after having financed a bunch of box office duds. Around the same time Quentin Tarantino came to them with Inglorious Basterds and said he wanted Brad for Aldo. Weinstein Brothers couldn’t afford to finance the entire movie so they shopped the movie around and Universal ended up winning the right to co-produce. The problem was – Brad was pissed at Uni for throwing him under the bus with State of Play. So Tarantino had to go to France and convince Brad to do the movie. Fastforward to 2009, Weinstein is barely hanging on waiting for IB (and the Friday the 13th reboot) to be released and save their bacon. Withouth IB the company probably would have had to file for bankruptcy. Also, in late 2010 they were able to secure an influx of cash from an investment company and that’s the other thing that’s put them back in the black. So Harvey lives to bribe and blackmail another day…
    .
    As for why he has so many Oscar caliber films? Because Weinstein Company is the distributor, not the producer and financer, for a lot of independent films bought at film festivals like Cannes, Toronto & Venice. For instance – last year there was a lot of buzz on The King’s Speech but they didn’t have a U.S. distributor and Weinstein Company outbid the other distributors for the rights to distribute – and therefore market – the film. Same thing with The Artist this year. IIRC they bought those rights at Cannes. And they bought The Iron Lady at TIFF. Other producers will give Weinstein their movies to distribute because of Harvey’s rep of getting the job done at Oscar time. They don’t ask or care about the hows and whys of his methods as long as they win.
