Brad Pitt's Brother Responds to Mom's Anti-Gay Letter

Brad Pitt's Brother Responds to Mom's Anti-Gay Letter

Brad Pitt‘s brother Doug has spoken out about their mother Jane‘s anti-gay and anti-Obama letter that she recently wrote as an opinion piece for a Missouri newspaper.

“You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different?” Doug said during an appearance on Today (via THR). “There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion. We can learn from each other and, if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something.”

Doug appeared on the show to promote his new role as the spokesperson for Virgin Mobile Australia.

    A good, solid, clear answer there.

    Doug sounds so nice and cute, I like his accent. He is a bit shy, but very charismatic.

    He said it beautifully, all families have difference of opinion, i was surprised to read her letter though. And i certainly don’t agree with her views either, that’s life. He is handsome though, not as Brad but still.

    Great points, all that are hard to accept when you feel very strongly about either gay rights or Christian values. Calling Christians bigots for having Christian views is childish and pointless. Many people in this country are Christian (majority in fact) and they shouldn’t be expected to “see the light” as you see fit.

    Today the Media spoon feeds you what you should think and labels you a racist, a bigot if you disagree.
    Media Backlash is why many are losing viewers but they scapegoat people like Ann Currry.

    Medias are stupid.
    Who cares about what their mom says, she is not a public personnality.
    They don’t have to make excuses for her.
    But well, it’s a way for you blogs to create a story, so the brothers have to rely, and you can sell your silly advertising.
    We all know Brad Pitt disagree with those ideas, you just have to take a look at Legends Of The Fall and Thelma & Louise to know that he was acting as a gay icon.

    Doug is as bright and well balanced as his more famous brother. Altho Brad is iconic for his looks, IMO what more defines him is that he is super smart…………his knowledge of art and architecture, his business savvy, his Producing skills, his ability to cull out quality in the biz, his choice of mate, his acting prowress, his humanitarian entrepreneurism like MIR, his photography talent, his ability to fly a plane etc.

    Despite the fact the family is polarized as regards their political views, I think they are a stellar family with amazing individual components.

    To the posters who are judging Jane Pitt based solely on her political/religious views are being somewhat ingenuous. We may not drink her Kool Aid, but she is a loving woman, a great mom and grandmother and wife……she’s simply evangelistic in her opinions on social issues. The fact that she doesn’t take it to the alienation point with her son and wife who wholly disagree says a lot about the woman.

    Personally I find her views repugnant but she is a product of her time, place and exposure. And there are millions of her. But it is not solely defining as to whom she is as a wife, mother, grandmother and humanitarian. Just a case of live and let live.

    I meant ‘dis’ ingenuous. duh.

    I Agree Too Says:

    Some fans on the Angelina Malificent site were practically turning against Brad’s mom just because her beliefs are different than her sons!? Which her son has said many times they have different views of life. It’s a shame that people can’t have an opposite opinion of others without being labeled as a racist, bigot, or homophobic. If you don’t agree with the worldviews then you are against them. The thing that most people forget about no matter how wrong, right or hurtful we live in the USA and we have freedom of speech! Also, the last time I checked we are all individuals and have a right to our own opinions whether others like it or not.

    It’s a shame when Doug was to be on the show for something else and because of the vicious hate thrown towards his mother for her opinion and views, his interview has to be focused on a subject having nothing to do with him.

    Great interview by Doug!
    Thanks Jared.

    Love The Shoes Says:

    She has the right to say and feel whatever she chooses. My main problem with her was what I felt was major disrespect for the American President. I thought and still do think very little of President George W Bush and just read that most historians are in agreemment that he will go down in history as one of the worst Presidents in U. S history, that said, I was taught never to disrespect the fact that he was still our leader and I think Mrs Pitt was quite un Cristian in dismissing Mr Obama by never ever refering to him as such. I have to admit that i just don’t have a good opinion of her like I did even if I would defend her right to say what she wants because that’s what our freedom allows and demands.
