This will be about as effective at the Remove Ben Affleck As Batman and Recast 50 Shades of Poop petitions – but funnier. AMPAS didn’t decide lightly to give Angie this award and they’re not going to be swayed by a petition drafted by a bunch of Angie-hatin’ crazed trailer park trash who can’t afford their Haldol and Abilify because they can’t buy them with food stamps, whose crackhead kids hate their guts and try to kill them by burning down their single-wide or whose spouses are incarcerated pedos. I’m pretty sure even Mother Theresa wouldn’t try to help those losers.

    LOL about Ticky & Squiggy stalking Brad through Tom Ford. Sad but true. Crazy ho. First Steven Klein then Tom Ford. The problem for Ticky though is that she can’t extend that stalking to her day job. Brad gets first dibs on all the good scripts. Ticky gets the flotsam turned down by all the A- and B-list actresses…who Tom Ford sometimes dresses. It’s really warms the cockles of my heart to know that all of Ticky’s money can’t buy her the one thing she really wants – a really good role in a really good movie that brings her a Best Actress Oscar. We all know Ticky would trade Squiggy for an award-nominated movie in a heartbeat. I’m sure Squiggy knows it, too. I’m sure he also knows that’ll never be put to the test because nobody’s ever going to entrust a great role to the likes of Rachel Green.

Even Walker had more scruples than the pond scum FFers and recognized mental illness when he saw it. He essentially told them they were too crazy for the NE – can you imagine that? A certain insane poster at FF started attacking Walker after that and claiming Angie owned the NE. LOL!!!

    Dang, Brad looks gorgeous in Toronto. Still with that tight killer bod. Ejiofor looks very handsome and if I liked Fassbender’s coloring more I’d be more impressed with him – just saw him in Jane Eyre and he was very sexy and have Fish Tank ready to watch. As good as he was in Hunger it wasn’t a sexy role.

    And Lupita Nyong’o is just stunningly beautiful. Her white gown is lovely. How mad is Oprah going to be when little Lupita snatches that Oscar away from her?

    ROTFL. You keep telling yourself that Putrid dumped Brad and not the other way around. He wasn’t the one who went on national TV 5 years later whining about how SHE had screwed up that relationship and saying she was grateful Brad spent anytime with her at all because she was an unmitigated mess AND that it had taken her 5 years to get over him. Instead Brad wouldn’t even acknowledge Putrid was still on the planet until she told the world that SHE was the one who screwed up. Brad also isn’t the one whose spouse talks about his wife’s ex-fiancee incessantly in every interview he’s done since marrying Brad’s cast-off and whines about how hard it is to compete with a man revered as the sexiest and most gorgeous man to have ever lived – especially since that man isn’t insterested in competing for his cast-off. Brad could have had Putrid back anytime he wanted – and you see where HE’s at and where SHE is at in 2013, don’tcha, moron. Good gravy…God was clearly on vacay when the trolls came knockin’ on the Pearly Gates looking for brains…

    I’m LMAO at the troll because apparently they have so little Ticky material at the mo that they’ve gone back to trying to throw BBT and Putrid in our faces. Here’s the thing they don’t get – Brad is with Angie and has been for 8 1/2 years. Angie is with Brad and has been for 8 1/2 years. Brad and Angie intend to stay together despite the troll’s malicious attempts to make their relationship sound rocky. BBT is with Connie Anglund and has been for 11 years. Putrid is with Mr. Coldplay and has been for 10+ years. If all you have is an 11 year-old photo of Angie kissing her then husband, a book forward from 2 years ago for an autobiography that sold roughly 8 copies outside BBT’s family (and those were to the trolls), and a 16 year-old rumor about who dumped whom? You might want to think about keeping your big fat fvcking gob shut so you don’t look like a complete imbecile. That’s just a suggestion…which I’m sure the troll won’t take…

  • lucy

    @Passing Through: It just amazes me why all the women that Brad dated or was married to briefly (Ticky) just cannot leave the man alone, they coat-tail him forever. Look at Colin Firth, he’s an A-Lister with an Oscar and a hot career, and he’s at TIFF with a film and so is his ex, Meg Tilly, the woman he lived with for over 5 years and has a 21 year old son with. I know Colin is no Brad Pitt, but he’s still a very successful actor, yet he and Meg can be in the same place at the same time (she’s there for the 30th reunion of The Big Chill) and there’s no drama, no coat-tailing, no wondering what will happen if they ran into each other. And to beat it all, Meg raves about what a wonderful man Colin is, how happy she is for him and his wife. Hard to imagine any of Brad’s exes wishing he and Angie well.

I get that CB and Kaiser are complete dimwits and not only believe tabloid stories but repeat them as if they could possibly be true…but…I’m disgusted at having given CB the hit for NE bullshite. I wish someone had just put in the post that the info came from NE then I could have skipped it altogether. Turns out I didn’t miss anything after all…other than the fact that Squigs seems to be in NYC again. I guess that’s the trade-off – one week in Meh-hee-co for one week in NYC. You’d think Ticky would be concerned that her fiancee who has no job is foerever going off to NYC without her just because he prefers dumpster diving to cleaning out the chicken coop…and the swimming pool…and mowing the yard…and doing all the housework…and cleaning her toilet with his tootbrush. Dude’s gotta earn his keep and his pin money, ya know…

    That’s good. She’s certainly putting in a lot of hours on these projects so it’s nice to see her getting some face time for it. She’s been at Plan B since 2003 so Brad, DeDe and later Jeremy Kleiner have remodeled the company after Brad Grey went to Par and Brad kicked Ticky to the curb and later threw her spy out on the garbage heap, too.

    I remember their UN petition. It wasn’t that long ago, was it? Didn’t they start one when Angie was named a Special Envoy? They’re always coming up with some feverish meth-fueled caca idea to “take down” Angie. If we started a petition to keep Ticky out of movie every time she announced some dud project that never sees the light of day they’d call us crazy…yet they don’t think THEY’RE crazy every time they come up with one of these dumb ideas. Fact – Angie’s work as a humanitarian has positively affected the lives of millions and IS a credit to Hollywood which has seen an influx of actors getting more involved and being visible in their support of various causes. One of these dimwits is most likely the person who left a message on the Deadline thread asking why Porgie (among others) hadn’t gotten the award instead. Nevermind the fact that Porgie didn’t get started in international humanitarian causes until 2006 after Brad and Angie got together. I pointed out as much. (And no, trolls, that’s not my real name so don’t even bother thnking I’m dumb enough to post comments at Deadline under my real name. I’m not you idiots.)

    Another fact – the Fat Fvckers can file petitions until the cows come home – Angie’s still going to get the Hersholt award in November. Sit and spin, biitches!

    PS – It’s a pretty sad day when even Mike Walker and NE won’t print your lies. Maybe they aspired too high? Tell ‘em to try The Globe. The Globe has no standards at all – witness them having published 2 stories from Mr. IUC in 2010. In order to get any lower standards they’d have to go The National Examiner and include the words “alien adbduction” once a paragraph.

    Credit to Brangelina Forum,

    It’s so funny that this article was written, because I was having similar thoughts today about how Brad seems to be fulfilling his duty now, as an elder, to do what he can to shepard, and or groom, the next generation ( actors, directors). Not trying to be paternalistic; don’t want to imply that these folks need Brad, but I do think that maybe he feels this is one of the ways he gives back. Kind of like his parental role writ large, if this makes any sense.

    Brad Pitt, Hollywood’s Godfather
    By Kat Angus | Yahoo! TIFF Blog

    130906b-brad-pitt.jpg

    Brad Pitt is something of a Hollywood do-gooder. From his political causes to his charity projects, the A-list star and producer has an impulse to create good work – an attitude clearly seen in the upcoming historical drama “12 Years A Slave.” At the film’s Sept. 6 showing at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the 49-year-old described himself as something of a “godfather” working behind the scenes.

    “It’s my responsibility as [a] godfather to make the production as good as it can be, to the best of my knowledge,” Pitt told reporters at the Princess of Wales Theatre. “You’re in the background, clearing the way so the artist can do his thing.”

    “12 Years a Slave” tells the true story of Solomon Northrup, a free African-American who is kidnapped while on a trip to Washington, D.C. and spends the next 12 years in slavery. Boasting an all-star cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor (as Northrup), Michael Fassbender, Alfre Woodard, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, and Sarah Paulson, the film is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Steve McQueen (“Shame”).

    But even with all of those names attached, Pitt knew he needed to bring more to the table to attract investors. That was one of the reasons he agreed to a small cameo, playing a Canadian carpenter named Samuel Bass.

    “It’s difficult material to get financing for… It doesn’t necessarily sound like a profitable idea,” Brad Pitt said of “12 Years.” “Our idea was to get as much of the cast together as we could and as much of the crew, so [the investors] could feel it and see what shape it would be.”

    Also on the TIFF red carpet on Friday, the film’s main star praised Pitt for backing the film. “Brad being on this film made it happen,” Ejiofor said. “Him producing the film and working with the film the way that he did allowed us to be here tonight.”

    130906b-12-years.jpg

    There’s already plenty of Oscar hype surrounding the film and Ejiofor, who has been working steadily in British and Hollywood films since the 1990s. Many believe “12 Years” will be a breakout role, and the 36-year-old actor’s elation on the red carpet was palpable. “I feel great, I feel very excited,” Ejiofor told reporters. “I’m thrilled to begin the process of getting the film out there and people seeing it. It’s a beautiful film. I’m so proud of this. I’m thrilled to be here.”

    Pitt’s last foray into producing was the 2011 film “Moneyball,” which didn’t travel an easy road to the big screen. Production was halted twice – once because of Pitt’s objections to the screenplay and again because of budget issues. Of course, it was all worth it, as “Moneyball” was ultimately a commercial and critical success, nabbing six Oscar nominations (including a Best Actor nod for Pitt himself). That love of creating is what motivated Pitt to don the producer hat yet again.

    “I love film. Film had a big impact on me growing up in Southern Missouri,” Pitt said. “When I saw a film that had that transformative experience, it had an indelible effect on me.”

    Now that he seems to have acting and producing down, would Pitt ever consider directing?

    “No,” he said, with a bit of a smirk. “Never.”

    The Toronto International Film Festival runs until Sept. 15.
