Brad Pitt Covers 'Entertainment Weekly'

Brad Pitt Covers 'Entertainment Weekly'

Brad Pitt is on high-alert on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s World War Z edition, on newsstands tomorrow.

Here’s what the 49-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On making a zombie thriller: “These movies are very intricate puzzles, and you have to keep winding the mechanisms and then trigger them all at just the right time. We give so much more credence to the end-of-the-year dramas. In these movies you’re triggering emotions, too—a thrill response—but they are far more calibrated. You’ve got to be a bit of a technician.”

On World War Z: “This unprecedented threat comes along, and it’s going to end everything and everybody unless someone comes up with an answer. The interesting thing is how different those answers are and the way those choices lead to power shifts and life-and-death consequences.”

On cutting the scenes filmed in Budapest: “Well, you remember that at the time I was really interested in a more political film, using the zombie trope as a kind of Trojan horse for asking: ‘What would happen to sociopolitical lines if there was a pandemic like this? Who would be on top? Who would be the powerful countries and who would be the most vulnerable?’. We wanted to really explore that, but it was just too much. We got bogged down in it; it was too much to explain. It gutted the fun of what these films are meant to be.”

    So going to have to buy this issue of EW.

    I’m also looking forward to the movie. Early reaction from the screenings are very positive.

    The troll need to save their pennies. We all know they will be seeing this as well. How else will they be able to whine about the film. Brad looks really HOT on the cover too. This is a keeper.

    Excuse me…did a hen REALLY just post this pathetic list of TIcky’s “accomplishments” as a producer? OMFG. They’re even stupider than I thought they were…and that’s saying something. Just because one has an “executive producer” credit it doesn’t mean you were completely involved in the film. In fact in a lot of actors’ case it’s frequently given as a mulligan to keep a star happy. That’s certainly what happned on Turkey Baster. Ticky has a history of glomming onto other people’s projects as well – see: Five, the Lifetime movie produced by her Friends boss Marta Kauffman. There’s also a second “Five” project on the list, too, and yes, that’s also Marta Kauffman’s project.
    .
    BTW – whoever searched IMDB didn’t look at the page for Echo Films. It’s as barren and dry as Ticky’s uterus. It lists only Turkey Baster and 2 flicks as “in development”. In Ticky’s case that means, “As. Fvcking. If.”

    Great post, Lylian. Too bad the troll can’t read for comprehension. Too many multi-syllabic words, too. These losers deserve to experience first-hand what these women and children are being subjected to on a daily basis. Some of them have been raped on more than one occasion. And they’ve also go children who were raped along side them and have had to endure the torture of seeing a grown ass man defile their child and not be able to do anything to stop it. HTF can this possibly be a subject to mock or a situation in which to belittle and defame Angie? We’ve always known these trolls are low-life scumbags lacking any human decency, but dayum. They’re way out of line and the sad thing is their hatred for Angie is so deep that they can’t see past it and that’s beyond pathetic. Yet they’re over-protective of a 44 y.o. tv hag who’s gone out of her way to make her own life a running joke that everyone’s in on except her and her hens. Amazing.

    Actress Kirsten Dunst doesn’t have fond memories of her first kiss, insisting her smooch with Brad Pitt in “Interview With the Vampire” was “disgusting.”

    LOL. If you hate him so much, why are you here. A real job. Oh you mean that thing that Jennifer Aniston’s midget is till trying to get.

    a fan Says:

    Kirsten Dunst was 11, at that age, they don’t like kiss anyone.

  22. 22
    Cece Says:

    To the people commenting on the Kirsten Dunst quote: Get a life. She said it was disgusting because she was a CHILD. No kid is going to find that pleasant at that age. It’s hardly some rejection of Brad Pitt.

    Good job brad ,,,,nwo stooge

    Shreya Says:

    Kirsten Dunst was 11 years old for gods sake. Of course it would have been disgusting to kiss a man who is old enough to be her dad. It would have been weirder if she liked it…

    Angelina Jolie: Brad Pitt and I Did Not Marry in Secret

    “Is that a wedding ring, Angelina?” a reporter asks in a video posted to TMZ.com. “No, it’s not,” she replies.
    .
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    .
    Poor crackhead troll. I see you’re failing at “reading for comprehension” again. Angie didn’t say she and Brad hadn’t married in secret. She was asked if the ring she was wearing is a wedding ring – and she said it isn’t. That is completely different from saying that she and Brad aren’t married. It’s also completely different than saying she doesn’t have ANOTHER RING that’s her wedding ring. Best of all – you can’t accuse Angie of lying either. The TMZ tool didn’t ask her if she and Brad had gotten married. He just asked if she was waring a wedding ring – and she’s not. Ergo, one of your homies needs to buy your ass some McGuffy Readers so you can help D!ck and Jane find Spot.
