    @Yoco: Last week the photos taken showed him going up the stairs.

    PT, I told you, SS did something to her chin earlier this year. I could see the implant moved when she was giving a interview. In the tiny pic, PT you can see the difference in the chin shape, IMO.

    Have to say I’m glad there are no B/A stories.. Maybe the rags have figured out they have missed a lot of drama focusing on these two people. Very nice for the fans.

    regarding JLO.. I don’t fine her romance that interesting at all. But there is a market for it so.

    Actually…this is good news for Squiggy because it’s more than double Wanderbust’s total of $21,450,353. It’s confirmation that his writing is better than his acting. Er…I think that’s called being “damned with faint praise…” Ticky and Squiggy…a match made in cinematic hell. The suits should make them do all of their movies together because that way they’re only foisited 1 bad movie on the world instad of 2. LOL!

    ROTFLMAO at TMZ now publishing a story saying Janet didnt’ slap or verbally abuse Paris last week. Harvey Levin hardly ever willingly admits to getting a story wrong. I’m still waiting on him to admit he got played by Huvsy with that story they stole from Star claiming Ticky was getting married in Greece and her cousin spilled the beans. I guess this means Janet threatened to sue TMZ. Since Harvey’s a lawyer he probably figured a published “correction” of the story was a helluva lot cheaper than a lawsuit .

    It’s the same building so that’s close enough. OuttaTouch spoke to the masseuse who claims to have serviced Gigolo Boy. They put her pic on the cover in an inset below the main photo. But, we know how OuttaTouch is with their paid named sources. They have a $10MIL lawsuit from Becks and who wasn’t amused by their cheating-with-a-hooker story a few years ago and actually sued them and the hookers named in the story. And let’s not forget the maid who was fired from the Waldorf Astoria who claimed that Angie was having an affair with her Russian tutor during Salt…and the guy said it was bullshite. All-in-all it’s the usual OuttaTouch BS…but it’s funnier than hell that it’s starting to happen to other celebs, too, after watching 7 years of this ridic shite happen to Angie and Brad. Now the rest of these people are finally starting to undertstand exactly why Brad and Angie have elected to ignore all of the crap the tabloids write and not bother to address it. If you address it it somehow validates it to some people and pretty soon they have you by the cajones because they know you’re reading what they write and that they’re getting to you. Then again, some celebs are just famehoes and want the attention regardless of how negative it is…and if that remarks bearns any resemblence to fugly ex-wives of Brad’s it’s not a coinkydink…

    Did you see that letter from the estate’s lawyer stating that 1/2 of the sibs and their family CANNOT enter the premises in Calabasass?. Randy and his kids, Rebbie and her kids, Janet, Jermain, his wife and his kids. Tito is lucky he took his name off that mess.
    -
    Someone posted on JJB the accounts from last yr and the estate gave KJ $4M+ for her and kids and they gave her loans of over $6M, plus she asked for an increase in her allowance and the estate asked the judge to approve it, so how in he.ll are they mistreating her and trying to kill her. Everything she asks for, they gave her, including 4 loans in one year.

    I’ve been meaning to say this re Harvey. I actually used to think he had good sources and knew what was up, but last month I clicked on that TMZ live thing they run on their site, and he was talking about Maniston and Ted Bundeoux being on Clooney’s private plane overseas, and his meeting up with Brad days later, or days before – can’t recall.
    .
    He just kept acting so shocked and surprised because as he put it, in his breathless schoolgirl way, ‘Clooney and Brad are like best friends, so omg, omg, what does it mean if Clooney is meeting up with Anuston?! He was basically beating that old tabloid horse to death — you know the one: Anuston hates Brad, so she must hate all of his friends, and not talk to them. So if she is talking with one, or (gasp!) flying onboard their private jet, it must mean…er, something. lolol. On and on Harvey was blathering…’wow, does this mean that Anuston has finally forgiven Brad, or does this mean that Clooney is taking sides?’
    .
    I’m like dude, stfd, it’s been 7 or 8 years — haven’t you read Maniston’s interviews with her faux fawning all over Brad, be it from keeping VM messages to telling Oprah how she loved, was proud and admiring of him?? Even Maniston’s friends have glummed onto Brad and Angelina at the Golden Globes (cox and Arquette at GG 2007) – did Levin have a heart attack then over that??
    .
    NUMBER ONE: Clooney is NOT Brad’s best friend. Even Clooney said so, a few years back. Admitting they’re more or less movie set buddies and that’s where it ends. Sure, Clooney especially, is admiring of Brad Pitt. But it ends there. I would think Harvey would know this.
    .
    NUMBER TWO: You’d think Harvey would know that Clooney is essentially the Hollywood fundraiser for Obama, so if anything he was squeezing that bish dry for some dollar bills y’all. Ditto Brad when he met with him.

    I swear I wanted to smack that fool for his sheer stupid idiocy.

    No, I didn’t see that story. I’m glad the estate had them banned from the Calabassas compound but what are they going to do when renovations are finished on the Encino home? IIRC that house is in Katherine’s name even though Michael was the one footing the bills.
    .
    Also, I think it’s pretty obvious that at 82 Katherine does NOT need $6MIL in loans for herself. No bank would give her a loan for that kind of money at her age so it’s not like she’s buying a house with a 30 year morgage. So where’s the money going if not to her greedy ass kids? People always thought Michael was broke because of extravangt, ie, crazy, personality but it’s starting to become more and more apparent that his family was bleeding him dry and that’s why he left them out of his will. He had to know that they would hit Katherine up for money but he also knew that she won’t live forever. They’ve got a finite amount of time they’ll be able to squeeze money out of her and then when she dies so does the hand they’ve got in Michael cookie jar. They’re depserate to get as much money as they can before she does and you can practically smell it on them now.

    Cowboy Look in The Counselor

    By Alison Schwartz

    Wednesday August 01, 2012 12:00 PM EDT

    Pitt: left in 1991, right in 2012

    Everett; FameFlynet

    When it comes to successfully pulling off various (and often hairy) looks for movie roles, we tip our hat to Brad Pitt.

    And when it comes to pulling off cowboy hats – well, he’s probably persuaded many a fan to move to the wild, wild West.

    Shooting his latest film, The Counselor, in London Tuesday, Angelina Jolie’s fiancé once again channeled his inner cowboy with the down-home southern accessory (and a full head of long hair). The film, which tells the story of a lawyer caught up with the drug-trafficking industry, also stars Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender.

    And the look is a walk – more like a horseback ride – down memory lane for Pitt, 48, who sported a similar hat-happy and mustached look in 1991′s classic Thelma & Louise. Encountering the duo (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) on their way out west, he played the sticky-fingered J.D. in his sexy supporting role.

    He makes for a fine southern gentleman in both films, do you have a favorite?

  • plez

    He iconically first rose to recognition with his cheeky grin wearing a white cowboy hat in breakout movie Thelma and Louise back in 1991.
    Fast forward 21 years and Brad Pitt has almost stepped back in time as this morning he stepped out in a similar get-up.

    why are people saying tha Angie wants to do 50 Shades of Grey? Why would she want to do that movie? The book sucks.

  • plez

    @anon: They use Angelina’s name to get attention. First they started by saying she was interested in directing the movie. The studio said this was not true. They have not heard anything from Angelina about directing that movie. Now some tabloid media has decided to included her name as a possible actress.

    I saw that story on the TMZ site but I usually don’t watch the TMZ show or livefeed because like you said – Harvey carries on like a “breathless schoolgirl.” I know he’s gay gay gay but he’s also 62 or 63 years old, which is a little too old to always act like a 12 year-old girl crushin’ on the Beebs. As for TMZ’s sources…sometimes they’re good…he was all over that Mel Gibs/Russsian Ho mess or when he can bribe someone at the courthouse or police station to give him info. But a lot of the time I think they get their info from the universal go-to tabloid source – his own butthole.
    .
    LOL at the idea of Porgie chattin’ up Ticky to hit her up for a campaign donation for Obama. I wouldn’t put it past him. Porgie’s been dodging her ass for years and suddenly he’s all buddy-buddy with her? He only ever takes her calls when he wants something in return, ie, can you answer phones at my Haiti telethon and pretend to donate some money…but it’s okay if you renege because nobody will ever know….

    Thanks. It’s too bad they didn’t think to ban them before Katherine went missing. They should have seen that move coming. I didn’t realize the stipend is supposedly $70K PER CHILD PER MONTH. I thought it was $70K TOTAL for all 3 kids. That’s a whole lotta Beebs downloads for Paris. I also had to laugh that Katherine is supposedly trying to purchase the Calabasass house. If she’s already gotten $6MIL in loans…exactly how is she going to pay for it? Ask the estate to loan her the money to buy the house so she can allow her banned kids back onto the property? LOL. Katherine may or may not be getting senile or manipulated by her kids but ot’s like I said before – Michael wasn’t/isn’t the only crazy one in that family. He obviously didn’t fall far from the tree.

    The next five months could bear great fruit for The Weinstein Company. Between now and New Year’s Eve, Harvey Weinstein’s studio will release “Lawless,” “The Master,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Sapphires” and “Django Unchained,” all films with varying degrees of awards heat. Not to be left out in the cold? “Killing Them Softly,” Brad Pitt’s latest collaboration with Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”), which earned rave reviews when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

    ROTFLMAO at the tabs making fun of Ticky. First Star said she’s old and her face is overfilled with injectible fillers in a “fleshy transformation” with “chubby cheeks and jowls” while mocking her by gesting that it’s a possible attempt at Oscar Glory by de-glamorizing (like Nic Kidman in The Hours and CT in Monster)…but then twist the knife and say that’s hardly likely given her next dud won’t be making any film critic Top 10 lists. ME-fvcking-OW, Star! Then they threw Ticky under the bus and wondered if she’d deliberatedly gained weight and got extra fug for this role and said it’s a smart career move because…
    .
    She’s at the point where she has to realize she can’t play the glammed-up hottie forever. If she’s comfortable in this unflattering part, and made herself look less attractive for it, it makes Jen seem more human and more likable in the process.”
    .
    BBBBBBBWWWWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! SNAP! Ya gotta love it. Star said she was busted and then said she was old and the “unattractive older woman” role is probably the only roles she’s going to get offered from now on. LOL! Damn…that’s cold…wish I’d thought of it myself…

    After making the beautiful and ethereal anti-western “The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford,” Andrew Dominik took a bit of time away, and now five years later he returns with a wholly different film, the angry, caustic, funny and riveting “Killing Them Softly.”

    Starring Brad Pitt, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn, “Killing Them Softly” is challenging and in this writer’s opinion, one of the best movies of the year. It opens on October 19th, watch the trailer below.
