    I love seeing Pothead looking uglier than ever and he’s not even 50 yet. If we compare him to guys like Depp or Keanu, you know Pitty has done a lot of crappy things in his lifetime and now karma is finally catching up to him. It’s of course a huge blow to the ego of someone whose career was based on looks alone.

    He looks like a truck had just ran him over. Why of course, after getting DUMPED by Paramount and Brad Grey, he has every reason to look like shOh I love how he looks like shіt, and he’s about to turn 50. Compare him to guys like Depp, and you know Pitty has done a lot of crappy things in his lifetime and now karma is finally catching up to him. It’s of course a huge blow to the ego of someone whose career was based on looks alone.

    He looks like a truck had just run him over. Why of course, after getting DUMPED by Paramount and Brad Grey, he has every reason to look like ****. He’s no doubt drowning his sorrows in booze and drugs. Well, it’s not like he needed an excuse really. LOL.

    At his age, he has no fans, no bankability, no respect from the studio system or his peers anyway. If he has any dignity left, he will save himself from further embarrassment and will retire at 50 like he promised. His kids need a present father in their lives anyway.

    Brad is so hot!

    I can hardly wait for Brad’s 50th birthday. This year, I will have him all to myself as long as he doesn’t spend a night on the tiles after getting completely drunk with his pals

    Of course, it’s always a risk doing it with Brad, given his record of fooling around, not to mention all the time he spent on casting couches and hooking up with the Jolie, who surely must be an overflowing reservoir of communicable diseases.

    Anyhow, our little private birthday party is planned for my London flat. We’ll get into our birthday suits right away and then try our best to blow out all the candles, if you know what I mean.

    @living in a box:

    You can’t blame Pitty for making such derivative and reductive choices. It’s not like he’s a hot and in-demand actor anyway. All good roles go to the likes of Clooney, Downey, Depp, so he has to content himself with whatever supporting role he can find these days. He can always take out money out of his own pocket to make his vanity projects, but we already know how those underperform or bomb altogether at the box office, not to mention the Cinemascore F’s and D’s that he’s been getting lately. :)

Amazing producer, actor, husband, father and humanitarian notwithstanding an outstanding designer and vintner…….the man is half of the world’s most amazing couple.

    Same JP troll posting variations of the same deluded rant ad nauseam. How many more aliases does she need to get her point across? Oh I know I know, she wants to fool others into thinking that these are entirely different people; it’s a pity that each post is separated by two minutes. Predictable loon is predictable. LOL.

    Consistency is your problem when creating new aliases, loons. Once you start a thread with something so irrational, it’s best to elaborate on why you think so, and create some differing views or people that sound slightly different. JP Fan and Rosie suck at it by the way. Try harder next time, silly predictable trolls! :D

    HE’S engaged to one of the world’s most beautiful women, has been named the sexiest man alive and has a thriving Hollywood acting career spanning more than two decades.

    So it’s no wonder Brad Pitt is taking his latest milestone – turning the big Five-O – in his stride.

    The Oklahoma-born actor celebrates his 50th birthday on Wednesday, among the last of the baby boomer generation to hit the half-century mark. But if images of his visit to Sydney last week are any indication, the father of six won’t be losing his sex symbol status anytime soon.

    Spending time on board luxury yacht Ghost, Pitt looked fit and happy as he spent time with wife Jolie and their children Zahara, Pax, Vivienne, Knox, Shiloh and Maddox.

    And with his toned body, trendy new undercut and a face which has defied the ravages of time, Pitt still holds his own among Hollywood’s hottest men

    Fury must be filming the Berlin street fighting by now. It was really brutal and a complete waste of lives especially of the young and elderly forced into battle. This is going to be a very popular film especially with men and other WW2 buffs and historians like me. Don’t mean to sound sexist but tank warfare is BIG with many males and not so many females. ;)

Basically they’re accusing her of parlaying her snobbery into a way to line her pockets buy using Goop to sell shite to the people dumb enough to go to her site. It’s probably their attempt to do a VF piece before VF gets around to publishing their story. Too bad they ruined by claiming that Putrid makes 15 million pounds per movie. That comes out to just under $25MIL. As if. She wishes. If she could make that kind of money making movies she wouldn’t be doing Goop.

The one that Ben Stiller says still isn’t happening – if it ever does – because they can’t figure out how to make it work. The man’s 48 for God’s sake. It would have to be Son of Zoolander at this point.

    If the movie’s as dark as Jon Bernthal said it is – more like a VN movie set in WWII – then it’s going to be interesting to see how it does at the BO. The box office climate is a lot different now than when Saving Private Ryan came out in the late ’90s. And we know Brad has a penchant for doing movies that can be a hard sell to the public. The good news is that it doesn’t come out until Nov 2013 so that’ll give Tampon nearly a full to come up with some new material. Considering her limited IQ…I’m not holding my breath…

    So, let’s see, the week in review:

    TYAS racked up multiple award nominations from both the SAG’s and the GG’s.

    It was nominated and won many critic awards.

    Brad’s movie Fury looks like it’s going to be damn good. A dark movie like Apocalypse Now.

    Angelina is directing her second feature film.

    Brad moved Plan B to New Regency, just like he hinted he was going to do in his THR interview.

    Paramount is moving forward with a sequel to WWZ with Brad’s involvement because according to the CEO of Viacom, owner’s of Paramount, WWZ helped their profits, so much so, that they’re going forward with a sequel. Will it happen? We’ll see.

    Brad is looking damn fine.

    His co-stars continue to having nothing but lovely things to say about him.

    Angelina’s cast and crew and extras have nothing but lovely things to say about her.

    Now:

    Ticky gets called overpaid.

    Her fans get called tabloid, addled psychos.

    She gets 22 year olds absolutely sh*tfaced at her parties.

    All she can still talk about is her hair.

    Oh and she gets to perform sex acts on fruits and vegetables in her cameo in HB2. It’ll be twice as nice.

    And the big ones. She didn’t get nominated for her work in WTM from SAG or the GG. Neither did WTM.

    Hmph.

    And Tamsh*t continues to rant like the addled psycho he was called out being. And is too dumb to realize it. Same thing, each week.

    He’s really butt hurt. LOL.

    Hey, PT. What’s a VN movie.
    .
    I think it’s total BS that the public can’t handle dark films. The public loves dark films, the darker the better. They especially love brutal war movies.
    .
    What the public can’t always handle are real life stories that expose our prejudices or our own violent tendencies. That’s what any talk about TYAS being hard to handle is all about. That and a calculated campaign against it for awards season. Oh, yea, and that little thing called prejudice-in-disguise a la the ignorant bigot at IUC, Patty Anne, and her rant that slavery is overdone after all we did roots 35 years ago what more do “these people” want?

    Brad, world luckiest man Says:

    We can say many things about Brad Pitt, some are obvious like he is a beautiful man, no one can discussed that Brad Pitt was a very good looking man, not even a guy like me. He have the typical surfer-boy kind of look, blond, blue eyes, squared jaws, sweet smile, great athletic body, friendly expression and a happy personality.

    Brad himself have said that his beauty was something that he struggled to understand, he realized very early that his good look was something very powerful to others and he could do things and open some doors just because he was a beautiful man. But he was not rested in his beauty, he was searching for something more, he wanted to give is life a meaning.

    Seeing the movies in the cinema, he discovered that he could used his beauty to enter in the movies industry and with some luck, maybe he become a actor and lived like a true star.

    Brad Pitt was not a child star, was not from a family of artists or rich parents, he was not a young boy when he was casting to do a Publicity clip, he was not a actor and he do not study to be an actor. He was just a dreamer and a good looking guy with talent and ambition.

    We can´t forget that Brad Pitt was 25 or 26 when he done “Telma and Luise”, but he show that he have talent and the lucky star that any successful person needs to be a Star.

    After this Brad Pitt is in the top of the best actors for more than 20 years. It is not easy. He is talent and intelligent. Few actors have build a diverse and solid career like Brad did. With is beautiful face he never fall in the romantic-comedies box that have strangled many actors. Brad was a clever and lucky in the choices he made. That´s why he is one of the best actors and the best payed of his generation.

    But i say that Brad Pitt is the luckiest man in the world not because his professional success, that it´s very important but it´s not the most important factor in life, but because his personal success.

    Brad is the luckiest man in the world because he was able to make big decisions when he was confronted with some big personal questions. In life there are a moment that we have to make a choice, give an opinion, chose a path. Brad have that defined moment when he call a special woman to convinced her to accepted a role in a movie they are preparing.

    When he meet that woman for the first time, it was the preparation for the movie, where they see if they are at ease, if they like each other and if they make a good pair together. Brad Pitt must have said to himself “ho man, what a woman… i have an angel in front of me … a beautiful angel… the man that can have this woman is the luckiest man in the world”.

    Brad it´s the world luckiest man because he fall in love and was able to chased and conquered the love of a woman that the fortune put them together.

    Brad is the man in all world that have the lucky to love and be loved by the Goddess of this planet, the Queen of beauty, the Princess of love, the Empress of Goodwill, the Master of talent, the most beautiful and biggest soul in this world, the unique Angelina Jolie.

    Brad is a lucky man (of all world) …. he is loved by Angie…. kiss

    Too bad they don’t have a SAG or GG for flameouts……..then Ticky would finally win something. Wonder when she’s take the ring off? He’ll probably have to fly to LA and yank it off her finger; altho, she likely paid for it herself so he may not care. Don’t know how long Stephanie can keep his lid on…….should be interesting………we’ll see if he’s in Cabo trying to look the other way as she does her ‘splay’ to show us her other set of wafer thin lips. Forty-five……..hmmm……her panic will set in with her hot flashes. If she is a biitch now, she won’t even get them to hang two years………

    Val, as Brad said, he began living an interesting life, instead of trying to find one in the movies. And once that happened, the interesting films found him.

    That interesting life began in 2005.

Maybe even the seventh…….didn’t Brad say seven? That would rock the thimble sized troll world……..fourteen will be a huge JP year.

    I agree to you both.

    Brad obviously is now living a productive, quality life NOT the empty life he had in the past. Definitely, he is totally different from his life with his previous marriage. It is because he is INSPIRED to do things he likes.He can do whatever he wants…be it about his career, businesses, hobbies etc. No coercion, no more PR purposes. No image maintenance & projection. No more self-destructive ways. Just being him, the good man who has a good breeding. This time, he is beating his own drum together with the love of his life….Angie, the one who gave him the reason to spread his wings & soar. He has Angie who brings out the best in him, not only as her man & the father to their beautiful kids BUT as a person. He found a woman who loves, supports & respects him, NOT insults or downgrades him. He does not need to waste his life anymore. He has now the very reason to better his life because of what a great family he has. It takes an Angie to let him see the bright side of life. As another poster (Dawne) said, “There is NO WOMAN who could measure up to what he has….”. Now, that he is turning 50 y.o., when he looks back to his life, he can honestly say that he made the right decisions eventually. Just like Angie, he is also in the right, peaceful place now…. with the people who matters to him the most…. his FAMILY with the woman he loves the most.

Why change your name when you want to say poop when we already know it’s you even when you try to appear smart or when you try to bastardize your English.

    Pfffft…. third world hookers like this one are boring, not to mention a dime a dozen. They all sound like a broken record, it’s the same personal insults over and over, uttered against people they don’t know jack about, on behalf of two vulgar celebrities they don’t know jack about either. How sad is that? It’s clear that they want to fit in with the American loons because they suffer from self esteem issues, and they dream of getting surgeries to look like their beloved Putang’ina Mo’lee.

    I hardly doubt that there’s more than one or two of these Asian loons posting here anyway. More importantly they bring nothing to the conversation. The real disgusting here is the constant homophobic remarks they spew. Talk about self-hatred. Did they forget that both Pitty and Ho have been in same-sex relationships?

    And why can’t these pinay flies ever stay on topic though? Why not telling us how they really feel about Pitty getting DUMPED by Paramount and Brad Grey? And how about the Ho getting BANNED from flying and getting in trouble because her plane did not have permission to fly? And how about them living separate lives for nearly half a year, and Pitty only seeing his six kids once in four months?

    Let’s see them trying to answer all that! :)

The house, designed in 1936, is famously built over a waterfall. Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, via AP. The actor broke away for personal time on Thursday, when Jolie arranged for the couple to have a private tour of Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece in Mill Run, Pa. “Brad is a student of great architecture,” Jolie said. They toured the home for two hours, followed by a birthday celebration in Fallingwater’s living room. Pitt turns 43 on Dec. 18.

What kind of sick, pathetic individual could ever feel that way about something so meaningless? LOL. This doesn’t even have anything to do with “defending” the Brand from its detractors any more; she doesn’t even care for them and will only casually mention them when I call her out on her lack of interest. Case in point, she hasn’t said a thing about Pothead and his company getting DROPPED by Paramount and Brad Grey, or Heroina getting BANNED from flying.

    This silly no-life fake fan should do herself a favor and instead of wasting thousands of productive hours on a wild goose chase that only leads her to post incredibly false, yet laughable, stuff through dozens of aliases (once again, her inability to make coherent sentences gives her away every time), she should look for locations of the nearest mental facility or contact information of support groups who might help her get over her OBSESSION with a complete stranger.

    Good morning to the great Jolie Pitt’s fans. Big shout out to everyone this morning. So, Brad will be celebrating his big day in a few days and I know he’s over the moon knowing he made such a bold choice to bet with the beautiful Angelina Jolie and look at the beautiful family they made, six of the most beautiful children. I know Brad heart is bursting with pride and Angie is so proud of her “Love”, the father of her beautiful children.

    I just have to quote Brad on his big day coming up on Wednesday.

    I remember Brad saying in print. “I spent the ’90 trying to hide out …I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic”. “it became very clear to me that I was so intent to find a movie about an interesting life, but I was not living an interesting life myself”.

    “I think my marriage had something to do with it, trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn’t”.

    Thank God Brad is not pretending anymore. He has a beautiful family and living with. ” Angie, the woman I love”. I’m sure he’s just biting at the bits waiting to get home this week to be with his loving family.

    I see the horse and phony show continues. Ticky is still playing games with her three fans. She was just papped with tacky and this time they were both laughing in HER car. The last time they were seemed together tacky almost covered his face with his sweather, and looked liked he wanted to kill someone for taking his picture while in her car. I’m
    Wondering how much she had to pay to tacky to get him in her car and
    to pretend he was happy to be there.

    Have a blessed day to all Jolie Pitt’s fans.

    He’s so desperate for validation that he’ll be fighting tooth and nails to be among the three eligible producers for TYAS’ Best Picture nomination. The only one who is a lock as producer is McQueen himself, and it would be hysterical if Gardner, Milchan or Kleiner get nominated as producers, leaving Poor Pitty out in the cold. It would be a tragedy for him, after he’s hyped himself so badly in those paid puff pieces. Then again, he’s just one of SEVEN listed producers after all, and he’s the one with the worst PR right and karma now!

    ITAWU! Brad didn’t really started living until he met Angie. No wonder he was stoned out of his mind during his marriage to MANiston. Poor Brad. Angie saved his life. He is more respected as an actor than a pretty Ken doll. MANiston dressed him as a Ken doll because that’s all she cares about. MANiston really held Brad back.

    @valis202: “what was Brad thinking?” to have uch bad taste in women. He told us. He was “sitting on a couch, holding a joint, and hiding out. It started feeling pathetic”. .. “it became clear to me that I was so intent that I was trying to find a movie about an interesting, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself.”

    “I think my marriage had something to do with it, trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn’t.”.

    You’re so right. I mean Jennifer Aniston. WTF.

    What must Brad have been thinking or smoking when he made that choice.

    ————————————

    Oh well you know Vapid one, whatever he smoked at the time can’t be as strong as the afghan hashish he he smokes with his kids around, as per Tarantino’s recollection.

    But oh well, we all know he used her to get Plan B started from the ground, just as he used Gwyneth and Juliette for their connections in the industry. Shocker.

    And it was certainly a downgrade to cheat on his wife (at time Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrity, mind you) to publicly hook up to a semi-employed D-list actress who’s been widely acknowledged as Hollywood’s TOWN PUMP for years.

    So true. I don’t think that I have read any posts from trolls where they have ever fully discussed Echo Films. They know what a monumental failure it is, just like most things that Aniston does.

    In a previous post, O2 made a list of all the films that Aniston intended to produce when Echo Films started. There were quite a few of them that were announced and out of all of those projects none of them have come to fruition. And yet Tamsh*t believes that Aniston is this great producing genius. LOL

    Loons will never back down from “ticky talk” because it’s what gave birth to them in first place. They can’t separate being fans of Stupitt and Heroina from Aniston, hence everybody calls them “loons”.

    Trust, cheating is cheating, no matter how you look at it, the whole world knows about Pitty adulterous indiscretion and Heroina’s role in breaking up his marriage. Despite of what JA does in public and how many times you attack her and her agent, you can’t rewrite history. Everybody accepted the truth a long time ago and moved on, save for you idiots.

    What I’d really like to see is one of you mentally disabled chimps trying to approach Pitty and Ho and then having the nerve of bringing the “ticky talk” up to them. They wouldn’t last 5 seconds without being pepper-sprayed all over and getting their fat asses tased by their security staff. The Brand LOATHES loons; that’s another thing for them to accept.

    Awww… Brangeloonies are hated by society on the Internet and the real world as well, on top of that, they’re hated by the people they claim to admire the most.

    10 Most Bankable People in Hollywood

    http://wallstcheatsheet.com/stocks/10-most-bankable-people-in-hollywood.html/?ref=YF

    7. Brad Pitt

    When you’re Brad Pitt, you make just under $21 million a year, according to the Numbers Bankabiity Index. Often seen as a masculine icon in Hollywood, Pitt got his start in cult classics like Fight Club and eventually headlined mainstream movies such as World War Z, Troy, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, showcasing his versatility as an actor.

    And Le Bradness was listed higher then RDJ who is listed at number nine which I have to admit surprised me.

    CYBER BULLYING: The Number One Rule for dealing with this type of behavior is: “Don’t Respond, don’t interact and don’t engage. This is not as easy as it sounds, it’s a natural response to wNt to defend yourself, and to put the person right. However, never argue with a Serial bully, it’s not a mature adult discussion but like dealing with a child or immature teenager; whilst the Serial Bully may be an adult on the outside; on the inside they are like a child who’s never grown up – and probably never will. Serial Bullies and Harassers often have disordered thinking patterns and do not share the same thoughts and values as you”.
    “Be Alert to Provocation. It could be called the Bating Game. A providers comment is made and those who respond spontaneously in irritation , (eg. Non assertively) are then encouraged to engage in conflict with those who respond without irritation (eg. Assertively). The Provoker watches, waits and stirs the pot with the occasional additional provocation.

    What interests me is the sense of gratification that a Provoker gain from watching others indulge in destructive interaction initiated by him- or herself. In this context, gratification is perverse form of satisfaction akin to, but distinct form of pleasure”.

    Awww, man, I just saw that Peter O’Toole died. Lawrence of Arabia is one of my all-time favorite movies. And also The Lion In Winter with Katherine Hepburn. The two of them killed it in that movie. I still can’t believe he never won an Oscar. He was given an Honorary Oscar in the early 2000s but that’s it.
    .
    BTW – One of my favorite Peter O’Toole stories was when he was doing Troy with Brad. O’Toole was a lifelong alcoholic, unrepentent mostly with occasional attempts at sobriety, and he talked about how a bunch of them used to go out drinking – and Brad drank him under the table. He said if he’d been in his heyday Brad wouldn’t have stood a chance. LOL! RIP, Peter O’Toole. One of the all-time great characters.

    a beautiful loving relationship with Angie engaged to the gorgeous Brad Pitt , Hollywood’s biggest star ever. Six adorable children with the best parents anyone could ask for. Brad met his match, Angie is definitely no wallflower. She too is absolutely stunning being the highest paid actress in HW and now directing her second film, known as beauty and brains. I am so proud of my two famous stars.

    Keep up the amazing good work Angie and Brad!

    The trolls are so stoopid. The list of actors, great and not-so-great, who’ve never won an Oscar is pretty impressive. Depp and Leo have never won Oscars either so I guess that makes them hacks, too, huh? And then there’s Tiny Tom, Will Smith, Brad’s BFF Edward Norton, Gary Oldman, Ralph Fiennes, RDJ, Samuel L. Jackson, Viggo Mortensen, Joaquin Phoenix, Albert Finney…and if you want to go back in the day, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Donald Sutherland, Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood, Reobert Redford, Kirk Douglas, James Earl Jones, Steve McQueen, Walter Matthau, James Cagnery, Joseph Cotton, James Dean, Cary Grant, Montgomery Clift, Errol Flynn, James Mason, Peter Sellers, Orson Welles, etc. I mean, come on, the list is pretty frickin’ impressive. Some of these people never even got a nomination. I didn’t even list the actresses who’ve never won or never been nominated. And for the record – Brad has the same number of nominations as Leo, Johnny Depp and Tiny Tom. They each have 3 nominations.
    .
    PS – Best chuckle of the day…a USER list of never wons at IMDB that had Ticky on it. I kid you not…Leo, Depp, Richard Gere, Julianne Moore…and Ticky? WTF? To be fair they also included other WTF moments – Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Drew B., Queen Latifah, Amanda Seyfried and Cam Diaz. Clearly this is not exactly an acting expert…hell, it’s probably Tampon’s list. Seriously, this is what the admitted hen wrote -

    “ The ”Friends” star, Jennifer Aniston is one of the most beloved and funnier actresses ever, however she has never been nominated for an Oscar, since her role choices, were always in poorly-received movies, who wouldn’t help her show her talent. The actress, however has won an Emmy Primetime Award and a Golden-Globe for her role in ”Friends” and has received critical acclaim for her roles in:
    ”Marley & Me”, ”The Good Girl” and ”Friends With Money”.
    The American-Greek actress has the potential of winning an Oscar in the future, as long as she takes advantage of it right. I can’t wait for her new movies, since I am a huge fan. Other well-known movies with her are:
    ”The Break-Up”, ”Horrible Bosses” and ”Along Came Polly”. ” – giorgosgreen3

    .
    Er…I must’ve been sleeping when Ticky got “critical acclaim” for The Dog Flick. I mostly remember critics talking about how fvcked up her face looked, saying she was too old for the role and no amount of cheek fillers could hide that, and that the 22 dogs playing Marley were better than she was. I do remember that Ticky got a few decent reviews for FWM but calling 2 or 3 “She didn’t completely sucks” “critical acclaim” is more of a stretch than Mr. Fantastic mating with Stretch Armstrong.

    That’s not very surprising to me. Take away the Iron Man\Avengers\Sherlock Holmes franchises and what have you got left? He’s made 9 movies since 2008 – 2 Holmes, 3 Iron Man, 1 Avengers, 1 Ben Stiller, 1 comedy with Zach Galifianakis and 1 drama with Jamie Foxx. The comedy made $211.7MIL. The Soloist with Foxx (2009) tanked at $38MIL worldwide. He also did a cameo in the Hulk reboot wtih Ed Norton. Take away the Marvel movies and Holmes and you’ve got, quite literally, nothing left. His early 2000s movies before Iron Man weren’t exactly box office giants. They were barely on the map. So far he hasn’t even bothered to test himself in other roles the last 5 years. He’s got 2 movies in the can for 2014 release – one of which sound utterly stupid (Chef – with IM director Jon Favreau) and another called The Judge, a thriller, with Robert Duvall as his father, a judge accused of murder. I could be wrong but neither one sounds like box office winners to me but if he’s that big of a star, shouldn’t he at least be able to have a decent opening weekend in a non-franchise movie?

    Brad actually has 4 nominations but I didn’t include the Best Picture nomination for Moneyball in 2011. He’ll undoubtedly get another nom this year for TYAS, which will bring his total to 5 nominations. Porgie has 2 Oscars and I’m sure he’ll be campaigning behind the scenes to keep TYAS from winning Best Picture so Brad doesn’t get his first Oscar and he’ll be able to continue saying that he has Oscars but Brad doesn’t. And yes, I’m serious. I think Porgie is that much of a jealous dog when it comes to Brad. It’s the one industry accolade that he can say he has that Brad doesn’t and I think he wants to keep it that way. Brad’s a bigger star, he’s more well-respected, he’s a bigger box office draw, he’s got the most famous wife and family in HW (possibly the world), everybody likes him, he’s a great guy…but he doesn’t have an Oscar.

You have to suck up to the voters at Q&As and other industry events. Brad’ll be there doing his part to make sure TYAS gets the Best Picture Oscar. It’s his job as the producer to make it happen and he’ll do what needs to be done. I just don’t think he’s willing to blow people the way so many others are so there won’t be any ass kissing from Brad. Maybe he’ll kiss a few babies and shake a few hands..but that’s about it…

    Thanks. I didn’t know that. What’s the point of winning when one has to kiss some @ss voters just to get a nod. Oh well, guess Brad has to do what he has to do because there are other people who are also involved in this movie like Steve, Chiwetel, Lupita, etc.

    The AMPAS voters are on average 65 white males. That is why it is easier for women to win Oscars at a young age but hard for men. I think the youngest male winner for best actor was like 29. The theory is that the academy doesn’t like giving good looking males Oscars that is why Leo, Brad, Redford etc haven’t had much luck with them but they love to award young women. Another theory is it’s harder to succeed in Hollywood for women after age 40(well not the case for Sandra, Cate, Kidman, because they still get good roles) so hence why they give it out at a younger age.

    Angie and Brad beautiful love Says:

    It was between the end of 2005 and the beginning of 2006 that Brad finally give a big kick in the assss of the sad-ugly-boring-selfish Fakeniston and started to go after the beautiful, talent and charismatic Goddess Angelina Jolie.

    I´m reading stuff from that period because it is the most interesting time of Brad and Angie love story, so i´m looking for everything about this time.

    - Did you know if there is any video from this interview in the “Today Show” of the reporter that made the Vogue interview with Angie in 2006.?
    The famous first interview of Angie after she and Brad come together … forever and ever !!!
    .
    ——
    “Estelle @ 12/13/2006 at 11:13 am”
    “Ok, they did not have Angie on, they had someone from Vogue, the same interviewer that interview Angie for the article. Any how, he said that ” while they were filming the movie, they both had developed a bond of friendship……and Angie wants to make it clear to everyone that they were only friend and nothing else.”….they put up a few quotes from the interview ( of course not in the whole content).
    Here are some of the thing that he said.
    ” She said that both of them are very competitive while filming the movie…..they were constantly challenging each other to be better………….I think she ( Angie) was dying to tell everyone her side of the story of the last two years…..She wants to tell everyone that there were no romantic relationship between them while Brad were still married……….I believe that the relationship happened after the the filing of the divorce….and it was a surprise to her as to the rest of the world…..she wants to make that clear”….
    I knew that the interview will caused misunderstanding and people are picknicking it apart. But I’m glad that the today show clear that with the view,”

    Yes I understand what you’re saying. The movie was so bad it wasn’t even worth remembering its title. And yes, he’s one of the worst actors ever, half of his fame comes from the hot women he dated and the other half from his pretty boy roles, but he’s got no role that is memorable or iconic, really. Even in movies like Fight Club, his performance is forgettable and anyone could’ve filled his shoes.

    He’s a byproduct of the casting couch. Had it not been for Thom Racine, his first lover and sugardaddy in Hollywood, he would’ve never made it.

    I met Brad Pitt. He’s not a jerk

    Talking to a celebrity is a surreal experience. The moment they step in front of your camera on the red carpet the bubble between celebrity culture and real life bursts and there is a flash of consciousness that these mega-stars/uber-humans are actually just people.

    And often they are not nice people. Or at least not nice to media. And some days, I’m sympathetic (only when my feet aren’t throbbing from my red carpet heels). I get it. It sucks to be hustled down a line of 60 reporters, all asking the same, generally fluffy questions.

    But then you meet a star who is actually thoughtful and passionate about something and it restores your faith in the celebrity race.

    Thank you, Brad Pitt, you did this for me. Thank you for not being a jerk.

    Some context: Pitt was in Toronto promoting his new film, 12 Years a Slave , directed by Steve McQueen. Pitt is not only a character – he plays a Canadian abolitionist in the historical drama based on the life of Solomon Northup – but was also one of the producers.

    The movie follows the journey of a free black man in the mid-1800s who is kidnapped and sold into slavery.

    I have to say that when I first spotted Pitt’s blond ponytail at the beginning of carpet, I glanced at my phone. It was about 10 minutes to the start of the movie. I had sort of given up hope that I’d even get a good shot of Pitt walking by me.

    But slowly and methodically he made this way down, speaking to pretty much all of the media outlets. Right there, he scored big ‘he’s-not-a-jerk’ points.

    When Pitt finally made it to the end of the carpet (I was in spot 48 out of 60), he scored more points by giving thoughtful answers about slavery and human trafficking, talking about how as humans we all have a responsibility to care for each other.

    Certainly, he could have just been paying lip service to an important global issue. Cripes, his partner is Angelina Jolie, the supreme UN do-gooder. But the guy gushed sincerity.

    Perhaps I was star-struck. Or perhaps Brad Pitt has got your back. At least metaphysically speaking.

    (And to all of the Brad Pitt worshipers out there, yes, he is as stunningly handsome in real life as he is on the big screen.)

    How Pitt and Clooney Became Our Newman and Redford

    By David Haglund

    One of the many annoying things about The Artist’s apparent march to Oscar gold—not only in the best picture category, supposedly, but, if you follow the prognosticators, best actor, best score, and maybe a few others, too—is that it has thwarted a showdown that fans of American movies and watercooler debate deserve: Brad Pitt vs. George Clooney, for all the marbles.

    Instead we’ve got Clooney vs. Dujardin, or so they say—and that just isn’t as fun. Clooney and Pitt have of course been twinned in the minds of the movie-going public since Ocean’s Eleven (though they became actorly rivals even earlier: Clooney was the runner-up for Pitt’s breakout role, J.D. in Thelma & Louise). A review of the sequel compared the pair to Newman and Redford—and if you follow Google to chat rooms and comment threads across the Internet, you’ll see the analogy pop up more than a few times. It’s an imperfect analogy for any number of reasons—first and foremost, there is only one Paul Newman, obviously—but it’s a useful one for pointing out how the general perception of Clooney and Pitt as actors has become thoroughly warped.

    Clooney, it should be perfectly clear (and yet somehow is not, if those comment threads and chat rooms are any indication) is Redford. Pitt—well, like I said, there’s only one Paul Newman. But Pitt is much more like Newman than Clooney is.

    George Clooney is a good actor, certainly. He commands the screen in a manner not totally unlike a Golden Age movie star. His range is not tremendous; he’s best when he can use the distant, elusive quality he never shakes anyway—witness his turns in Out of Sight, Three Kings, Michael Clayton, Up in the Air, the Ocean’s movies. Like Redford, he has turned to directing, with a particular interest in films that display an old-fashioned moderate leftiness (and an old-fashioned moderate loftiness).

    And yet somehow it’s Pitt who gets saddled with the Redford comparisons. Sure, he’s slightly younger than Clooney, but not by much. He’s sort of blondish, I guess, like Redford—and his part in the Redford-directed A River Runs Through It was important for his career. Redford also played Pitt’s mentor in the forgettable Spy Game, for whatever that’s worth. But Pitt’s accomplishments as an actor put him in Newman’s class, not Redford’s.

    People like to say that Pitt is a character actor in a leading man’s body, thanks to his standout supporting parts in 12 Monkeys, Burn After Reading, and Inglourious ******** (his over-the-top turn as Tyler Durden in Fight Club may be a factor here, too). And there is some resistance, I think, to taking Brad Pitt seriously; he’s never seemed quite as sophisticated off-screen as the bachelor Clooney with his Italian villa and what have you. But it’s what’s on the screen that matters, and after Tree of Life and Moneyball—two movies in which Pitt delivers excellent, understated performances in quieter, dominant roles—his abilities as a leading man are indisputable.
    Clooney, meanwhile, and to his great credit, attempted, in The Descendants, a character he knew he would be “uncomfortable” inhabiting, as he recently told James Lipton. Matt King, his character, must convey a sense of rootedness, of attachment—to the land, to his kids, even to the adulterous wife in a coma on a hospital bed. And Clooney can’t quite pull it off. Pitt, on the other hand, leaves a mark with a few stern words to his sons in The Tree of Life and makes driving around by himself and occasionally eating things somehow interesting in Moneyball.

    And yet Clooney has a better shot at the Oscar, according to those who know. If it weren’t for that perky quasi-silent movie, his biggest threat would be Brad Pitt, and we would all be having fun Oscar arguments about which of these Hollywood friends and supposed rivals is really the superior actor. And the answer would clearly be Pitt.

    The youngest male Oscar winner is Adrian Brody and I think it’s fair to say he doesn’t qualify as the “good looking”. Not with that schnozz of his. Then again, look at his career. He hasn’t exactly been able to book great roles in quality movies. And also, the fact is, as Fassbender pointed out – there’s a hieararchy for male leads and the good scripts go through Brad Pitt and you just have to hope he passes on them. LOL! Then Leo, Depp, Smith, etc. Even as an Oscar winner Adrian Brody ain’t on anybody’s short list. He still has to audition for roles.

In LA it´s impossible to hide your sexual preferences and Brad was a open book until today.

    Talkin’ with Thom Racina: The WLS Interview, Part Three
    Posted by Damon L. Jacobs
    Tuesday, January 5, 2010

    In Parts One and Two of Nelson Aspen’s interview with the legendary soap writer and author Thom Racina, they discussed the politics behind the scenes at GENERAL HOSPITAL in the early 80s, why the FBI was called to the set, how Elizabeth Taylor changed the course of soap history, and so much more. In this final part, Thom shares how he helped Brad Pitt jump-start his career, and saved Anne Heche from being fired. Plus which show did he write in his underwear? Find out below!

    Nelson Aspen: You have a Brad Pitt soap opera connection. How does Brad Pitt fit into the world of soaps?

    Thom Racina: I put him on ANOTHER WORLD.

    Nelson Aspen: How did you know Brad Pitt?

    Thom Racina: I put up a little sign at Screen Actor’s Guild that said, “Needed: an actor to be a personal assistant. To walk the dog when he needed it. Drive the scripts to the studio…” This kid shows up. He’s cute, he’s full of energy and says, “I’m an actor,” which of course they all are in L.A. So I hired him. We became very close. He moved in with me, in the maid’s room. He had his own life, and yet we became good buddies. My parents loved him, they became the new family he had away from Missouri. Anyway, I came home from DAYS early one day, just in the last few months. I saw him doing this scene with this girl in my living room…

    Nelson Aspen: An acting scene?

    Thom Racina: Yes, right. I did see him do some other scenes in other various parts of the house. [Laughs] So I went to ANOTHER WORLD a few months later. I settled in to New York. I said to them, “I’ve got this terrific kid. He can play 18, even though he’s 23, we can give him a two year story. And I wrote a two year story for him. They brought him to New York, and he did the one day on ANOTHER WORLD. Then we sat down with The Idiots around the table. Procter & Gamble, NBC, and one after another [they said], “He can’t act, he’s not good looking…” Maggie DePriest said he had bad skin. Finally at the end I turned to John Whitesell and said, “Give me this.” He said, “I know he’s your buddy but I’ve got to tell you Thom, this kid sucks. He’ll never be an actor. Tell him to go be a plumber.” I had to go home and tell him. He cried, and I hugged him. I said, “Listen *******, you are now going to be able to audition. Before you didn’t have a SAG card. Now you’ve got it, you did one day, and you’ve got it. This is my gift to you, now go out and prove me right.” And he did! Had they liked him, he would have been a soap star forever. The universe works in mysterious ways.

    Nelson Aspen: Jennifer Aniston auditioned for SEARCH FOR TOMORROW and didn’t get it. It was a blessing. With John Whitesell it’s odd. I worked with him on two different shows and he was a very good judge of talent most of the time. He found Anne Heche.

    Thom Racina: And we fought for her. The writers loved her, and nobody else did. The network didn’t want her and we loved her.

    Nelson Aspen: Joanna Going was another one he found.

    Thom Racina: But Brad did something for me. People say, “Oh you gave him his start, he doesn’t talk to you anymore.” I say that people come into our each other’s lives for a certain time. Sometimes it’s a lifetime, other times it’s for certain times and you do not mourn that. You take that and say, “This was a wonderful thing.” He kept telling me, “You’ve got to write a movie, you’ve got to write another book.” He wanted to play a psychopath. So I wrote my book, “Snow Angel.” which got me out of daytime, because of Brad. He pushed me to do that book. Every time I talked it out with him I got a new idea. He was eager to play it, now he’s too big a star to do it. But he gave me that renewed interest in going back to writing novels.

    ROTFLMAO. Been slummin’ at Fat Fvckers, huh? Notice how they purposefully don’t have the old blog entry Racina wrote several years ago in which Racina made it clear that he and Brad were never lovers, that Brad was still with his girlfriend from Missouri for a lot of the time that Brad was his assistant. But, hey, wouldn’t want to introduce those Fat Fvckers to reality or the truth. Their heads would explode and lord knows there’s nothing harder to clean off trailer walls than troll guts and slime.

    BTW, trollette, Brad used to be buddies with Jason Priestly and doesn’t hang out with him anymore either. I guess that means they were lovers, too, huh?

    Do you know Paul Newman had 3 kids with his first wife and 3 kids with
    Joanne Woodward? And when the time he divorced, both his first wife and Woodward were pregnant with his kids. That was messy. At least Brad’s divorce wasn’t that messy. Newman said in his biography that he felt bad about the divorce, but he thought he made right choice because he and Woodward were together for 50 years.
    So I guess when you meet the love of your life, you really can’t let the person go.

When all those tabloid stories were saying he was sneaking around seeing Lenny he was straight as an arrow. But now 9 years later the Hag Army is spinning this. They are digging up pictures and all. Do you remember that photo spread that Brad wore the dress.. LOL..yeah that is there proof. by the by.. he looked so hot in a dress.. So they are spinning and spinning. All the digging and looking through pictures you would imagine they could come up with something else.

    You know they do this because they still have to find some way to prove that Brad and Angie are not having sex.. again the way they go on and on about the sexual life of this couple. just makes you wonder what they are missing at home.

    Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and the cast of Fury get down and dirty on Oxfordshire set in director’s behind-the-scenes Twitter pictures

    There still may be a long wait until fans get to see Brad Pitt in his new film, but one thing is for sure: Fury will be full of muddy men and heavy artillery.

    While the content of most movies remain a tightly guarded secret until they are in promotional mode just prior to their release, the film’s director David Ayer has been a one man social media marketing team.

    David – who also wrote the film – has been prolifically documenting what goes on behind the scenes of the war flick, posting a picture on his Twitter every day.

    Military men: The director of new film Fury has revealed a behind the scenes shot of Brad Pitt and other stars Kevin Vance, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Logan Lerman

    Up to day 57, the director has really started showing off the good stuff.

    On Friday, he revealed the movie’s stars in post battle mode – looking battered, tired and muddy on the Shirburn, Oxfordshire set.

    Despite playing a tank commander that has just taken on the enemy, Brad still manged to look very dapper.

    The 49-year-old posed alongside his rag tag tank crew – Kevin Vance, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Logan Lerman – wearing army pants tucked into knee high leather boots, a zip up jacket, with gloves and a scarf thrown around his shoulders.

    To play Sergeant Wardaddy – as he is known – in the World War II film, the star is sporting a period appropriate slicked back hair style that is shaved on the side

    Sounds to me like SOMEONE needs GLASSES.

    Your standards are really low, loonie as is the old Ho’s if she is still desperately clinging to the old goatie who constantly cheats on her. But then, as the Ho has been mourning the loss of her long-term love, the girlfriend, is it cheating, if they are just co-parents?
    Jolie must not of thought it was cheating to be at the Roosevelt messing with her girl friend and it didn’t bother Pitt to be seen openly with other women every time he goes to a film festival.
    Loonies are the only ones who still cling to that brandgie fantasy.

    The trolls have been down the Brad-is-gay route before. I’m LMAO because the idiot has been digging through Fat Fvckers on a thread from 2 or 3 years ago when Racina gave that interview. Every now and again one of the trolls drags that story over here like they’ve just discovered Atlantis and the Holy Grail at the same time. What’s really funny is that it was BooHooHoo who started that thread at FF. She’s obsessed with the idea that Brad had a gay affair with Racina for 2 years and hides it now that he’s famous. 9 years these idiots have been obsessing over Brad and Angie’s past sexual partners like it negates the fact that they’re together and monogamous NOW…except in their sick minds they’re not monogamous now and are each other’s beard\purse. These trolls are so stoopid they’re giving trolls a bad name. Trolls on other sites are embarrassed for them.

    12 Years a Slave” was the big winner today as the Indiana Film Journalists Association announced its awards for 2013.

    “12 Years a Slave” was honored as best picture, with Steve McQueen named best director and star Chiwetel Ejiofor named best actor. Composer Hans Zimmer was recognized was his musical score.

    “Her,” a feature about a man who falls in love with the voice on his computer took three honors: original screenplay by director Spike Jonze, the association’s Original Vision Award and runner-up for best film.

    Adele Exarchopoulos was named best actress for her performance in “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” which also was selected as best foreign film.

    Jennifer Lawrence was named best supporting actress for “American Hustle,” while newcomer Barkhad Abdi was honored as best supporting actor for his role as a young Somali pirate in “Captain Phillips.”

    “Frozen” was named best animated feature, while “The Act of Killing” was recognized as best documentary film.

    Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy won the best adapted screenplay award for “Before Midnight.”

    The Hoosier Award, which recognizes a significant cinematic contribution by a person or persons with roots in Indiana, or a film that depicts Hoosier State locales and stories, went to “Medora,”a documentary film directed by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart.

    IFJA members issued this statement with regard to the Hoosier Award: “In chronicling the plight of a hapless high school basketball team from a tiny, economically depressed Indiana town, Cohn and Rothbart managed to tap into the way Hoosiers are transfixed by their hoops obsession, as well as explore the harsh choices Indiana teenagers often face. In many ways, the film stands as stark counterpoint to the seminal ‘Hoop Dreams.’ These players aren’t vying for a spot in the NBA, but to win a single game and lay claim to their dignity, both on and off the court. It is a quintessentially Hoosier story told with craftsmanship, unique insight and uncommon grace.

    I see loons are still going through the delusional task of trying to compare the late, great Paul Newman to that travesty Pittstain. In what planet is the bloated junkie a better actor than Paul? LOL… at 50, Paul already had a number of timeless films under his belt, not only as an actor, but as director and producer as well. At 50, stuPitty only has a number of so-so performances in vanity projects that could’ve been replaced or improved upon any other actor of his generation. His fame remains a byproduct of his high profile relationships and PR hype. What with his limited range, and never stepping out of his comfort zone, there’s only so many roles he can play. His idea of a comedic performance is playing a clueless stoner loser (i.e himself), and he can’t do accents either. And let’s not even talk about his bankability, that’s a too foreign a concept for him to grasp.

    I cannot think of a single role he’s played that became forever linked to him. We know Depp is Jack Sparrow and Edward Scissorhands or Newman is “Cool Hand” Luke. Indelible performances in the mind of moviegoers. What has Pitty achieved in terms of longevity though? His one-note role in Thelma and Louise is the one that still gets remembered by female audiences and LOL- that was nothing but vapid eye-candy, not to mention Johnny Depp’s leftovers. As for Tyler Durden from Fight Club, well Ed Norton upstaged him in every scene, as he is the emotional anchor of the film anyway. Truth is any other physically gifted actor could’ve taken on the role with ease. And the same can be said about Benjamin Buttons, who remarkably remains the most generic role he could’ve taken on. Any leading actor could’ve improved his go-through-the-motions, mechanical, emotionally detached delivery in a heartbeat. :)

    So loons better sit quiet in their corners until their washed up idol announces his retirement, the one thing he promised to do after he turned 50. He doesn’t really have the body of work that, as a self proclaimed “movie star”, should’ve had. His best bet is to quietly fade into oblivion and focus on raising his kids, that is, if he has any dignity left. If so, loons will be disappointed because he is not marrying the Ho for sure! :)

    lol Brad is not desperate for Oscar. But I do believe anyone wants one just for the glory part. It is funny just because some actors only want make money movies, others who wants to do arty movies and remove that macho look wise man image that was given for them are desperate. You are desperate for money then for doing the pop corn movies to their part 199 then. ah some stupid people argument get my nerves.

    Again congrats to TYAS. Seems as though it is slowly emerging again as the Best Picture Forerunner. But it seems as though there is going to be an interesting battle between McQueen and Cuaron for Best Director. Am also really glad that Fassy has started to get awards recognition as well as Chiwetel and Lupita.

    If you think Brad is desperate, you should look at George Clooney, Kate Winslet, Natalie Portman, Leo DiCaprio, Anne Hathaway and several others who spend MILLIONS a year on publicists and are always grossly obvious in grubbing for awards. Fine- their choice how they spend their time and money. Brad has NO PR, so clearly he is far less desperate than so many of (his) peers. I like that he Angie have better things to spend their money on than liars and spin doctors- very admirable!

    2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominations
    Dubious genre categories again provide the opportunity to bait movie stars to the show

    BY KRISTOPHER TAPLEY MONDAY, DEC 16, 2013 11:47 AM

    So yes, the headline is that “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave” led this morning’s Critics’s Choice Movie Awards nominations (courtesy of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, of which I am a member). But when you stop and analyze the list, it’s worth pointing out that three of “Hustle’s” 13 nominations came in the “comedy” categories that were added along with a few other dubious genre fields by the group last year in order to land more high-profile attendees to the annual awards show. “12 Years” had no such padding from a genre bump, so it’s really the dominant force here and I expect it to carry through to a win next month as it continues to be the critics’ choice region-to-region for the year’s best film.

    Speaking of those genre fields, I don’t get it. “Gravity” is one of the biggest vote-getters of the year (10 nominations) and apparently picked up enough votes for Sandra Bullock in the Best Actress in an Action Movie category. I imagine, then, it would have had enough for Best Action Movie, too, yet it only shows up in Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. One can only assume some massaging is done when the final tally comes in, or that a great many members have no idea how this or that should be considered. (For instance, “Her” is nominated for Best Picture and Best Director but not in the four-nominee sci-fi field.)

    Then again, “Star Trek Into Darkness” received nominations for Best Action Movie and Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. “World War Z” received nominations for Best Actor in an Action Movie and Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. So who can figure out the logic? I don’t want to dizzy myself looking through all those categories and finding other such curiosities, I just wish the BFCA would nix them altogether. It has turned them into an amalgam of the People’s Choice and the MTV Movie Awards. Though maybe that’s the goal.

    The majority of the major categories feature six nominees, making the whole list pretty much an Oscar predictions crib sheet. It makes sense that things shake out this broadly each and every year because the BFCA is one of the larger organizations to vote. That’s also why the group’s choices often mirror the Academy’s; large bodies settle in the realm of consensus. So I think few would argue that this list of 10 Best Picture nominees isn’t the general consensus 10 at the moment. Save for “Dallas Buyers Club” replacing “Fruitvale Station,” it’s a mirror of the AFI list, too. “Philomena” could crack it. Or maybe “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” Or “August: Osage County.” But little else.

    (Interesting that the films looking to get in are all part of this year’s Weinstein Company stable.)

    The only nominations that stand out as interesting are Brie Larson’s Best Actress bid for “Short Term 12″ and Scarlett Johansson’s Best Supporting Actress mention for “Her.” But this announcement can reflect a critical darling hue sometimes amid even the general consensus boredom, so neither is particularly shocking.

    Only one nomination for “Mud” makes me want to flip the table over, but again, broad group = broad choices. At least it’s for Tye Sheridan, in the young actor/actress category.

    Worth noting: actors and actresses that have now received nominations from the Screen Actors Guild, Hollywood Foreign Press Association and BFCA include Bruce Dern (“Nebraska”), Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years a Slave”), Tom Hanks (“Captain Phillips”), Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”), Sandra Bullock (“Gravity”), Judi Dench (“Philomena”), Meryl Streep (“August: Osage County”), Emma Thompson (“Saving Mr. Banks”), Barkhad Abdi (“Captain Phillips”), Daniel Brühl (“Rush”), Michael Fassbender (“12 Years a Slave”), Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Jennifer Lawrence (“American Hustle”), Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”), Julia Roberts (“August: Osage County”) and June Squibb (“Nebraska”). Are they all safe and sound?

    Contenders still looking for an angle on the race after these three major announcements have come and gone include Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”), Will Forte (“Nebraska”), Jonah Hill (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Octavia Spencer (“Fruitvale Station”) and Margo Martindale (“August: Osage County”). Leonardo DiCaprio, Oscar Isaac, Amy Adams and Julie Delpy, meanwhile, are hoping that their comedy notices aren’t all the season has in store.

    Also part of the announcement is the revelation of this year’s host: comedian Aisha Tyler.

    What else can be said? Check out the full list of BFCA nominees on the next two pages.

    The 19th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards take place on Jan. 16, 2014. That’s right, the night of the Academy’s nominations announcement. Which of the above nominees will be too embarrassed to leave the house that night?

    It can be construed as the BFCA simply wanting to squeeze in as many stars as possible. I’m laughing at them nominating Christian Bale as “Best Actor” in 2 categories for the same movie. They basically didn’t have enough people for the Best Actor in a Comedy so they stuck Christian Bale in that category, too. Or di they think that since they had in the Best Actor category they had to put him the BA in a Comedy category too since they have AH in the Best Comedy category and it wouldn’t make sense if he wasn’t in both categories? It’s stoopid. They’re getting to be almost as star-hungry-for-the-broadcast as the HFPA.

    A lot of critics actually gave the movie a very good write up.
    What a year it has been for Brad, with that he has gone through especially Angie’s surgery, it it great to see that the years end is proving to be very good for him, his family and Plan B.
    What a decade it has been, age 40, he could not be sure whether her would ever have children,either by adoption or natural birth, ten years later he has six, and a wonderful partner, giving him the family he so wanted.
    As Brad said you go out and make what you want happen.
    BRAD PITT —what a man.

    ’12 Years a Slave’ tops AP movie rankings for 2013
    Dec. 16, 2013 10:44 AM

    In surveying the year at the movies, the topography is rich. From the dusty, dying towns of “Nebraska” to the rooftop Roman parties in “The Great Beauty” to the sleek future Los Angeles of “Her,” 2013 has been a trip. But has it been a great year?

    Negativity reached a fever pitch in the summer when Steven Spielberg lamented Hollywood’s risk-adverse, finance-driven blockbusterism. The grim, humorless “Man of Steel” and its careless backdrop of mass destruction was a low point: the epitome of everything bad about movies today. Yet ambitious films gathered in number as the year went on, and many began calling 2013 a historically excellent year for film, after all. Here are one critic’s top picks of the year, all of them reasons why 2013 was a good year for the big screen:

    1. “12 Years a Slave” — Steve McQueen’s masterful adaptation of Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir is simply a powerhouse. McQueen, I suspect, will never make a comedy; his three movies (“Shame,” ”Hunger”) reveal him a harsh storyteller, drawn down dark rabbit holes. But his lack of sentimentality gives “12 Years a Slave” its clarity: a long overdue correction to cinema’s reluctant treatment of slavery. As Northup, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s soulful eyes carry us through a nightmare odyssey of America’s past.

    2. “Mud” — From the plantations of mid-19th century Louisiana, we travel up river to contemporary Arkansas in Jeff Nichols’ Twain-esque tale of boyhood on the Mississippi. With the wise-beyond-his-years Tye Sheridan as the 14-year-old Ellis, “Mud” is a full-hearted American fable.

    3. “Frances Ha” — Full disclosure: I’m in love with Greta Gerwig. That bias notwithstanding, Noah Baumbach’s latest — co-written by and starring Gerwig — is a lovely ode to its title character (who has much in common with Gerwig, herself). Frances is an idiosyncratic 27-year-old finding her place in New York; where the “Ha” comes from is answered in the film’s sweet final moment.

    4. “Inside Llewyn Davis” — Like Frances, Llewyn is a striving Manhattanite without an apartment or a steady job. But he’s much angrier about it. The Coen brothers’ melancholy story of a bitter, unfortunate folk singer is a wry commentary on the cruelness of fate, and melody born out of disharmony.

    5. “The Hunt” — In the most haunting film of the year, the weak binds of a seemingly close-knit Danish community disintegrate when a kindergarten teacher (Mads Mikkelsen) is unjustly accused of sexually assaulting a child.

    6. “The Great Beauty” — Fellini looms large in Paolo Sorrentino’s portrait of Rome in decadent decay. Sorrentino is an exquisite stylist (the opening minutes of his “Il Divo” are pure, blistering cinema), and “The Great Beauty” is manic and overstuffed. But it’s bursting with life. (Literally. It’s got a giraffe.)

    7. “Gravity” — So simple you could make the case that Alfonso Cuaron’s 3-D spectacle is a bit banal. But, man, is it something to look at. The movie won’t be remembered for its thin story, but at a time when television’s rise is much discussed, “Gravity” reinvigorated the big screen experience.

    8. “Blue Is the Warmest Color” — Several films this year were fascinating snapshots of lives in motion. The powerful, simply told Bill Moyers’ documentary “Two American Families” kept up with two struggling middle-class families for 20 years. And Richard Linklater has covered two decades in the lives of a Paris woman (Julie Delpy) and American writer (Ethan Hawke) in his day-in-a-life series, culminating in “Before Midnight.” But Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or-winner (also called “The Life of Adele: Chapters 1&2″) is the most memorable for its extreme closeness in portraying a teenager’s awakening to herself and the world. Adele Exarchopoulus’ performance is staggeringly open. The irony is that the infamous sex scenes in this flawed but arresting coming-of-age tale are easily the most artificial parts in it.

    9. “This Is the End” — The jokes just come and come. Nobody had a better time making a movie this year than Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and it’s written all over their self-parodying apocalypse comedy.

    10. “The Spectacular Now” and “Short Term 12″ — Movies that honestly represent teenage life are seldom, but both of these films magically move from familiar plot lines to somewhere honest. The high-school comedy of “The Spectacular Now,” starring Miles Teller, smacks up against hard realities. “Short Term 12,” starring Brie Larson, tenderly depicts a foster-care facility and its young supervisors without resorting to clichés.

    Also: “Her,” ”Nebraska,” ”Rush,” ”A Band Called Death,” ”Elysium,” ”Fruitvale Station,” ”Captain Phillips,” ”Upstream Color,” ”Enough Said,” ”Blue Jasmine”

    I thought Brad was turning 50 not 5. Don’t think grown people need to celebrate their birthday on the exact date of birth. This being said this troll has been wrong so many times you think she would have some dignity and stop proclaiming things are going or not going to happen.

    I have not seen Ticky’s movie but I watched The Heat. The movie was stupid and Sandra acting was terrible in it. But both still got nominations. Which goes to show what these voters thought of Ticky’s stripping performance.

    Hey y’all, according to US Lies Weakly Ticky has added a new job to Squiggy’s list of duties. He is now her chauffer. Either homegirl was planning on drinking heavily or she decided to set Squiggy up for a photo op at Emily Blunt’s baby shower. US says Squiggy dropped Ticky off and then picked her up several hours later. Ticky used to have a driver and 3 bodyguards take her to stuff like baby showers. Now it’s Squiggy’s job…with a pap sittingn conveniently at Chez Krasinski to snap Ticky’s arrival. US said Amy Adams and Kristen Bell were there, too…but…I don’t recall seeing any pix of their arrival. Yet somehow Ticky managed to get papped there…and Squiggy managed to get papped out shopping after dropping Ticky off. WHere there is a fameho with the will there is a way…

    I’m more inclined to think they shot themselves in the foot with that snafu. If they hadn’t put Bale in BA in a Comedy then everyone would wonder how he could be in the BA category but not in the sub-category. It would have been the same for Leo if he’d been in the BA but not the BA in a Comedy. That’s what they get for having all of those stupid sub-categories so they can get more stars there and have a longer show which will make more money off the commercials. That’s what it always comes down to – M-O-N-E-Y.

    Ticky went to the “skin care clinic” with bodyguards & driver sans Squiggy…but she can’t go to a baby shower without him. Especially not when Lies & Shite & notOK have her on their current covers declaring Squiggy as abandoned her and is back in NYC sniffing around Heidi Bivens. Or am I really supposed to think it’s a coinkydink that she got papped with him this weekend? You know what I always say about Ticky – there are no coinkydinks where that cow is concerned. Everything’s a PR opportunity. Even a PR opportuntity is an excuse for a bigger PR opportunity.

    I fail to understand what loons are celebrating about 12YAS. Their idol remains the downside of the entire film. Is it because it’s picked up some minor awards? Oh but we all know that, just like it happened last week, had the top prizes gone in a different direction to reward other movies, loons would’ve dismissed them right away. LOL at the hypocrisy.

    That reminds me of the AV Club article I posted, which completely destroyed Forbes’ methodology and everything loons believed in. Of course loons are desperately trying to put a spin on it and deny they got labeled “tabloid-addled psychos”. I’m actually loving the irony of the loony validation, as it serves to point out yet another instance of loonies putting their stinky feet in their mouths. The first time I posted a link from AV Club, the idiotic chimps immediately discredited it, calling “The Onion” because of its affiliation to that other site. Then again, since when are loons known for making sense?

    The Ho-worshipping, tabloid-addled psychos should count their blessings though. “American Hustle” is also coming up as another major favorite and “Gravity”‘s popularity is not fading either. And as we know 12YAS may have peaked way too soon. Hehehe.

    TYAS continues to win multiple critic’s awards, making it the front runner, again.

    Fury is about to wrap. He’ll be joining his family by this time next week.

    Brad will be turning 50 in a few days. What a difference 10 years make. In 2003, he was about to finish filming Troy and start on M&MS.

    Jan. 1, 2004 was a very good day in the lives of Brad and Angelina.

    Jan. 7, 2005, was a very good day in the life of Brad and Angelina.

    Jan. 8, 2005, was a very good day in the life of Brad and Angelina.

    Well, hell, the past 10 years have been pretty damn great for Brad and Angelina, all in all. Six beautiful children, close knit family, their careers continue to go gangbusters.

    It’s a very good chance that Brad will be receiving his 5th Oscar nomination.

    The only downside is that the Ticky fans that are tabloid, addled psychos that rant. And these fans are too stupid to know when they’ve been called out on the carpet about it.

This year started out very stressful for Angie/Brad with her operation and it’s closing with a bang with all the good news for TYAS and now WWZ. I Could not wish anything better for this beautiful family, they are blessed.

    Looky here.

    TYAS has how many Critic’s Choice Awards? Thirteen? And to think, they would have none if it wasn’t for Brad.

    And Brad got one for WWZ.

    Did they miss anyone? Oh, Ticky. She’s so beloved that the SAG’s, the GG’s and the CC didn’t nominate her.

    I know that they’re saying that the CC’s and the GG’s like to nominate stars, stack the deck, to get them to their ceremonies, why didn’t they nominate Ticky if she’s just a big movie stah? Why didn’t they throw her a bone to go with her face?

    Don’t worry, she’s still got a PCA, which she’ll lose to Sandra or Emma. What’s important, is that she got the nom. LOL.

    Her thunder gets stolen from CC at her own X-mas party because CC brought a much younger man that is a front man for a band. No wonder Ticky got Ed sh*tfaced at her party. Probably trying to hit him up to hook her up.

    Ticky gets called overpaid.

    All she has to talk about is her hair. Certainly, not the A-List actors/actresses, directors or producers that want to work with her. She can rattle off her list, yet, not one of them calls. Go figure.

    So, after 20 plus years in the business Ticky is something that a cat would cough up. She’s an overpaid hairball.

    *cough, cough*

    No wonder her fans are called ranting psychos. I’d rant to if I was her fan. LMAO!

    She’s had her wings clipped: Angelina Jolie is ‘BANNED’ from flying her personal plane after she failed to renew registration in time

    She’s known for being a bit of a jet-setter, but Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie, has reportedly been banned from enjoying one of her favourite pastimes.

    Page Six reports that the star cannot currently fly her beloved personal plane after she failed to renew its registration in time.

    According to documents from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the 38-year-old did not file a new airworthiness certificate for her plane before the certificate expired on June 30th.

    So now, Angelina’s $360,000 red and white Cirrus SR-22 plane, which is one of the world’s fastest single-engine aircrafts, cannot be flown until the situation is remedied.

    Angelina’s team did make some effort to send a renewal application to the agency, but Page Six say they were told it didn’t arrive on time.

    Keen flyer Angelina has flown Brad Pitt, 49, Shiloh, 7, Maddox, Pax, 10, Zahara, 8 and twins, 5-year-old Vivienne and Knox in the jet which can reach a speed of 300 miles per hour.

    Angelina received her pilot’s licence eight years ago and said at the time that she was inspired by her son, Maddox to get into flying.

    ‘Every time Mad sees a plane, he’s amazed,’ she said at the time. ‘If I could actually fly a plane… I’ll be like Superman to him.’

    It sounds like Angelina wants to take the flight dreams even further as she and Brad Pitt are said to be interested in being space travellers on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.

    Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times reports that Brad Pitt’s film company, Plan B entertainment, has signed a production deal with New Regency and RatPac Entertainment.

    This will precipitate his company’s departure from Paramount Pictures at the end of the year.

    Angelina’s movie career is going from strength to strength and she is currently in Australia on location for production of hew new film, Unbroken.

    Brad Pitt’s Make It Right announces 2014 star-studded benefit gala

    The management of Make It Right, actor Brad Pitt’s post-flood architecture development in the Lower Ninth Ward, will hold a second Hollywood-style benefit gala in New Orleans on May 17, 2014. Make It Right, which began in 2007, has produced 100 homes for former neighborhood residents, designed by some of the world’s finest architects, including Frank Gehry, Thom Mayne and Eskew+Dumas+Ripple. In the past six years, Make It Right has become a jewel in New Orleans’ crown of tourist attractions and brought activity to an otherwise ruined area of the city.

    Make It Right reports that last year’s gala on March 10, 2012 raised over $4 million, which was used in the construction of twenty homes. The 2012 party and concert at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans featured appearances by Brad Pitt, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Brees, Rihanna, Sheryl Crow, Kanye West, Aziz Ansari, Seal, Snoop Dogg, the Soul Rebels and others.

    This year’s gala will take place at the Sugar Mill at 1021 Convention Center Blvd. The price of admission to next year’s benefit is $1000 per person. Make It Right will announce the performers and attending celebrities on their website in 2014.

    Make It Right really is a fascinating venture. It went from just building homes to taking a more holistic approach to rebuilding an entire neighborhood. And there have been the other projects it has taken on in other parts of the country. I remember once Brad talking about “going global.” There have also been the many new procedures and products that have come out of this work. I believe they have even applied for patents. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of shape this organization takes once the initial pledge of 150 homes is completed. I wonder if the more international efforts will begin to take off once this initial phase is completed.

    Best laugh of the month! God…the trolls really crack me up. Since when did TYAS “stay on the shelf”. The financing deal came with distribution by Fox Searchlight, ergo, the film was never on the shelf to begin with.
    .
    But, if the troll wants to get technical about it, ALL FILMS SIT ON THE SHELF FOR ABOUT 8 MONTHS – REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT IT HAS A DISTRIBUTION DEAL. Movies are made up to a year before they are released. If they’re CGI heavy it can be up to 2 years of post-production work. James Cameron just gave an interview about the next 3 Avatar movies and said they’ve already got a lot of the CGI in the works. They don’t start filming until next year and the movies aren’t scheduled for release until 2016, 2017 and 2018. So even James “I made 2 multi-billion dollar earning blockbusters” Cameron’s movies sit on the shelf for months\years before they’re “distributed”. LOL! Just when I think the trolls can’t get any stupider…
    .
    BTW, trollette, Ticky’s misManagement was made in 2007 and wasn’t released until 2009 because she couldn’t find a distributor willing to LOSE money putting it in theaters. Remind us again who many awards misManagement was nominated for? I’m not even talking about wins – just nominations. Put your dunce cap back on and go sit back down facing the corner. Even other trolls are embarrassed by the stupidity you’ve displayed with this ridic comment.

    Very interesting, PT. Shephard as I recall broadcast via twitter that his newly bought house looked down onto Brad and Angie’s Los Feliz property. I wonder if he got into a bidding war to ensure he got that house. LOL!!!

    The Daily Fail got that from Lies & Shite’s cover story this week. That whole article is a mash up of this week’s tabloid stories – they got stuff about Emily Blunt’s baby shower from US, the counseling came from L&S, the going to spend more time together\getting married in 2014 came from notOK and the Meh-hee-can vacay came from Peeps. They added their own twist on the Meh-hee-co vacay though. Peeps said they were going for Xmas like last year. DM said they’re going for NY Eve and that Squiggy is going East for Xmas while Ticky is staying in LA and spending it with “her family”. Puh-leeze. “Family” to Ticky means anyone who’s NOT related to her by blood so that would be all the usual suspects who let Ticky tag along with THEIR family.

    I was lurking around the internet and surprisingly I found this article from iVillage in 2004. iVillage were interviewing Brad and in the interview it foretold of what state of mind Brad in. Throwback! This Brad Pitt interview took place in New York City in May 2004. He just started working with Angelina Jolie on “Mrs. And Mrs. Smith” (then called “Mr. And Mrs. Jones”) and his marriage to Jennifer Aniston was quietly coming to an end, making his answers especially interesting

    Brad Pitt: Modern-Day God

    By Suzy Byrne

    You’ve seen Brad Pitt’s image in movies, on television, staring back at you from glossy magazine covers and maybe even pinned to your bedroom wall. But absolutely nothing can prepare a gal for seeing this big-screen god in person. Whew! He is take-your-breath-away handsome.

    With his trademark chiseled cheekbones and pouty lips, Brad strode into Manhattan’s Essex House Hotel wearing worn jeans, a snug yellow short-sleeve polo shirt (revealing his Herculean arms) and a movie star smile. He held a tough black leather jacket coolly over his shoulder, and a pair of pricey sunglasses dangled from his collar. His long, bleached-out Troy hair extensions? Gone. In their place, a new supershort cropped ‘do.

    Despite being one of the most highly paid actors (he banked a cool $20 mil for Mr. and Mrs. Jones), his interests extend outside the boundaries of Hollywood. Before filming Troy, inspired by Homer’s The Iliad, Brad took two years off from making movies to oversee the renovation of the Los Angeles mansion he purchased with wife Jennifer Aniston (parts of which he designed himself) and to pursue some of his other passions like photography and architecture. In fact, his photos appear in a book, Greene & Greene: The Blacker House, and he recently began an internship with star architect Frank Gehry.

    But those side projects are on the back burner for now because the heartthrob, who reached superstardom appearing in films like Thelma and Louise, Legends of the Fall, Interview with the Vampire and Fight Club, is making movies again. Currently starring as the great Greek warrior Achilles in Troy — a big-budget flick costarring Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana and screen legend Peter O’Toole — Brad just wrapped production of Mr. and Mrs. Smith (costarring Angelina Jolie) and began the Ocean’s Eleven sequel, Ocean’s Twelve. Oh, and he’s also in the process of starting a family with Jen. Read on for all the delicious details…

    iVillage: How did you prepare to play a larger-than-life role like Achilles?
    Brad: Fortunately, there was so much research done on The Iliad. So many people have written about it, so I had a great well of information to glean from. Then, I culled the things that meant the most to me. So it wasn’t that difficult. It’s dealing with a really isolated character who was in search of self.

    iVillage: Did you read the whole story, or did you buy the Cliff Notes version?
    Brad: I actually read the whole thing because I knew this question was coming [laughs]. No, that’s not true. When I started it I really got into it. There’s a reason why it’s still around. It’s one of the great stories — you can see how many films and stories are a derivative of it.

    iVillage: How important was it to play this character? This is a departure from other roles you’ve played.
    Brad: Actually, when I first read the script, it seemed too obvious in a way in my addled brain. But I quickly got into it.

    iVillage: Obvious?
    Brad: I don’t know. I’m not sure what it was. [Playing the] Golden Boy or something…

    iVillage: Do you have an Achilles heel?
    Brad: Well, yeah. But I’m not going there [laughs].

    iVillage: Come on…
    Brad: I don’t know… [He reconsiders] It’s intimacy for all of us, isn’t it? Pretty much. It is for nine out of 10 people.

    iVillage: You were in great shape for Troy. How’d you do it?
    Brad: Yeah, it’s amazing what an impending midlife crisis will do for you [laughs]. Really. I just turned 40 in December — it got me motivated.

    iVillage: You weren’t scared of turning 40, though, were you?
    Brad: No. Actually, I see it as a real badge of honor. I enjoyed it. No more excuses, you know? I’m responsible. I can’t blame anything on my parents. I’m responsible for my mistakes and choices.

    iVillage: Was there anything you indulged yourself in when you turned 40, like a sports car?
    Brad: No. We were filming the big fight [between Achilles and Hector] on my birthday. When I came back [to Los Angeles after the movie wrapped], I had a nice quiet dinner with my friends and wife. You know, I always said I was going to buy something for my 40th birthday, like a 40-year-old’s car — a Rolls or something — then I got too into energy conservation. So I bought a Prius [laughs].

    @Love Conquers All:

    Continuing on from the article
    _______________________________________________________
    iVillage: Back to your training regime…
    Brad: It sucked [laughs]. It was brutal. I started working out about six months before filming. I hired a trainer who knew what he was talking about and he started me on a high-protein, low-carb diet and I had four meals a day. It was quitting smoking. It was two to three hours in the gym each day — getting to a point of absolute discomfort. On top of that we had sword rehearsal. After three months, I finally started to enjoy it [smiles].

    iVillage: You haven’t gone back to smoking?
    Brad: No, I picked it up again [laughs]. I actually picked it up, then quit, then picked it up again.

    iVillage: Have you ever spent so much time in a skirt?
    Brad: I have never spent so much time in a skirt [laughs]. And if I had? I certainly wouldn’t say it here. But they’re not bad. They’re not bad at all.

    iVillage: Do you get to keep your wardrobe?
    Brad: No, I usually don’t want to see the wardrobe after I’m done filming.

    iVillage: You don’t wear a dress around the house?
    Brad: Actually, Jen might like it if I would.

    iVillage: With all the work you’re doing, how hard has it been for you to balance your private life with your career, especially when you’re thinking about starting a family?
    Brad: Well, I’d been off for two years prior to taking this role. I didn’t work for two years. So Jen and I got a lot of time together. We both accept this aspect of our business, so we just go visit each other.

    iVillage: You hope to start a family soon?
    Brad: Yeah, it’s time. It’s time.

    iVillage: Are you looking forward to fatherhood?
    Brad: I am. I’m finally at a place where I won’t mess them up too much [laughs].

    iVillage: How’s Jen dealing with post-Friends life?
    Brad: She’s really sad to see it go in a way. She knows it’s a big change in her life. Think about when you left college — that era is over. She made some really wonderful friends and had times that meant a lot to her, but she’s also excited about embarking on the next era.

    iVillage: Is it true you were really nervous when you worked with Jen on Friends?
    Brad: I was. I was really nervous. It’s a whole different thing. I was completely out of my water. It’s a different rhythm, a different scenario. It’s a completely different art form.

    iVillage: Would you work with Jen again?
    Brad: Well, if you look through history at the couples who worked together, the odds aren’t with us [laughs]. If we did, the project would have to be handpicked.

    iVillage: What do you think of the fame game? Do you find the whole thing rather surreal and silly?
    Brad: You know, I don’t find it silly. I certainly have been drawn to people or events and emulated something, but it could easily go down the wrong road when it becomes obsession.

    iVillage: What was your most real encounter with that?
    Brad: Just when they break in your house [laughs]. I remember I was in Argentina and I was dating [Gwyneth] Paltrow at the time. We were fading off to sleep and in the room I see this figure. It was a little 14-year-old girl. She climbed over the wall and broke into the house through the upstairs window. That was pretty real.

    iVillage: Do you have any regrets? You’ve said if you had a superpower it would be to turn back time.
    Brad: I really don’t. I say that about turning back time, but I don’t really mean it.

    iVillage: So you’re completely happy?
    Brad: I’m not completely happy, but I’m also a big believer that your mistakes define you as much as anything. It’s there where you get real understanding of yourself. You can’t have one without the other.

    http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000005/nest/223149550?p=3
    Just in case you are wondering Clearwater is NOT tamshiit this person is just obsessed with Bullock, ticky, Meg Ryan, Hilary Swank etc and hates Jolie.

    Just reiterating Clearwater is not tamshiit just another bitter ticky fan lying about its gender.

    Aniston Removes Wedding Ring
    21 December 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

    Actress Jennifer Aniston has fueled speculation her marriage to Brad Pitt is in turmoil – by taking off her wedding ring. Rumors the relationship is deteriorating were first sparked during filming of Mr. And Mrs. Smith this summer when Pitt was romantically linked to his co-star Angelina Jolie. The ex-Friends star added to the gossip by canceling the Troy hunk’s 41st birthday party she’d agreed to host, weeks after reports she refused to have his first child. And Aniston increased beliefs about their crumbling romance by wearing her wedding ring when she left London’s Dorchester Hotel – where the couple had been staying during Pitt’s promotional tour for movie Ocean’s Twelve – but removing it when she landed at Los Angeles’ airport on Sunday. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, “Jennifer never takes her ring off, it’s her absolute pride and joy. It is very unusual that she wasn’t wearing it.”

    The 25 Most Charitable Celebrities of 2013
    by Brandy ZadroznyDec 16, 2013 5:45 am EST
    Who’s lending their name to a good cause—and who just shows up for the year-end gala? From Oprah to Elton, we crunched the numbers to rank the most truly generous stars.
    When it comes to doing good, sometimes the best thing celebrities have to offer is not dollars, but themselves.

    The Daily Beast
    Though Jay Z was roundly criticized for declaring “my presence is charity” this summer, it turns out, the hip-hop mogul isn’t too far off the mark. Celebrity endorsements benefit charities in a number of ways, mainly by bringing credibility and likability to a nonprofit’s brand. And that, research shows, adds major value. In an upcoming study from Rutgers School of Business, Professors Erica Harris and Julie Ruth found that donors gave 1.4 percent more to charities associated with celebrities—to the tune of $100,000 each year.

    So just how much charity does Jay Z’s presence really buy, and which celebrities have given the most of themselves to promote their causes? Who are the outspoken advocates and who’s just showing up for the year-end gala? The Daily Beast looked at the data to find out which celebrities were really the most charitable with the most valuable resource of all: their fame.

    In this ranking, we looked at the following data points:

    First, we wanted to know who made the best celebrity partners, so we asked E-Poll Market Research to create an initial list of 100 charitable celebrities based on the public perception of their activism and compassion. E-Poll measures the likeability and awareness of celebrities and public figures based on in-depth survey results of 46 attribute ratings.

    From there, we looked at the number of charities or foundations each celebrity supports, as reported by celebrity charity tracker Looktothestars.org, and awarded a score to each celeb based on how many causes the stars lends his or her name to.
    But it’s not just about the number of causes they participate in, but the time and effort they put in to promotion. So we also took into account the advocacy done on behalf of charities and the awareness their work inspired. First, we chose the charity that the actor or musician is most aligned with at the moment. Famous folks often have a bevy of causes, and when two causes compete, like Bono’s RED and ONE campaign, we ran the numbers on both and deferred to the nonprofit where the celebrity had the most influence.

    We measured mentions in the last two years in traditional media: broadcast television, using clips from the Internet Archive’s TV news research service and print, using Nexis.
    Then we moved online to find out how much the celebs pushed their causes in social media. For online impact we looked at Internet presence measured by the Google page results. But not all celebrities’ online clout is equal. So we also partnered with Traackr, an influencer marketing platform, which looked at the celebrities’ social media footprint to determine their reach (audience size across all social platforms: Twitter, Facebook fans, Instagram, Pinterest, Blogs) and resonance, or how engaged their audience is, measured by things like how much they are retweeted, how many link backs are there to their blogs, etc.
    Each category—public perception, number of charities, promotion in traditional media, and online promotion—was weighted 25 percent.

    Sadly, Jay Z didn’t make the list.

    That said he wasn’t happy then either….so many changes were taken place etc too . but at least he kept sexy and was buff though for movie and boy he was free when he talks….. no children , or kids that all the damn time as a shilled ….. there iwa a WOMAN directly in his talks…… and he sounded fun that freedom is disappeared from both him and angle…. that was my take anyways………… he may get asked if he were doing some promotion now about his hitting another decade…..

    Garrett Hedlund says Jolie acts like she is in the film

    For sure she is cold and calculating. Hedlund will get quite the education and I don’t just mean in movie-making–look for a break-up with his gf after he returns to the states. So far he has been compliant, barely on set a week or two and singing Jolie’s praises…Why do we have no words from the other actors?
    All I can say is Jen Aniston wasn’t the least bit worried about Brad and Jolie on the set cause Jolie was a weirdo and not his type but so much for underestimating jolie’s perseverance when she wants something…

    JP Fan Says:

    @kristen:

    Just quit it Kristen, just admit that Brad was never really in love with Jennifer, look all men are running away from her. Your idol is just an average looking, boring, famewhore who will sleep with anyone just to become the movie star which she never will be. Brad realize what he was missing the moment he laid eyes on Jolie. He chased her around the globe. Jolie never has to chase men. It is the men who falls hopelessly in love with her.

    Not only she is physically beautiful she has a big big heart unlike your Jennifer who only thinks of herself. It is all about me me me me. when her relationship falls apart, it will never be her fault, it will always be the men. This is why any sensible men will stay away as far they could from her. Only desperate men like Justine would. Poor poor thing. I do felt sorry for her desperateness for attention. What a needy woman child that she is.

    @to the fans: PLEASE REMEMBER CYBER TROLLING AND BULLING RULES ARE: The Number One Rule when dealing with this type of Behavior is:

    “DON’T RESPOND, DON’T INTERACT AND DON’T ENGAGE.”

    This is not as easy as it might sounds. It’s a natural response to try and correct a wrong statement, and to defend the person being attacked and yourself.

    When dealing with a cyber troll/bully you’re not dealing with a mature adult it’s more like dealing with a child or immature teenager. Whilst the troll/bully may be an adult on the outside; on the inside they are more like a child who has never grown up, and probably never will.

    Serial bullies/Trolls/harassers often have disordered thinking patterns and do not share the same thoughts and thinking as the person they are bullying or harassing.

    Fans remember trolls are looking for attention and they will do or say anything to get that attention they cannot get at home or from their significant other if they have one. Trolls are very sick people with mental disorders.

    Let’s hope Brad is on his way home to his beautiful family as soon as possible.

    @Jen the Hag: JTH, I know, I have done the same thing myself. However, I made a promise to myself to ignore the trolls because they are very sick people. You know you Tamshitt has to be very sick person to threatened Angelina’s life although it never met her shows this is a very sick mind we are dealing with. For Tamshitt to threatened to take a knife and stab Angelina 100x to kill her if it meets her on the streets it a very sick mind speaking. I also promised myself I’m not going to argue with the mentally Ill it’s just a waste of time. That’s just my promise to my self because.

    The trolls are not fans of Ticky, if they were they would be on her thread and not on Brad and Angelinas thread everyday. They are here to TRY and disrupt this thread because they get some sick satisfaction by doing
    so. I’m not going to give the the satisfaction of feeding into their sickness.

    I may be in the minority but I really like John and Katy as a couple. He seems very happy with her, and she the same. They would have very very cute kids. I hope they last. He seems to be getting his head back into music. His last public relationship kind of sucked the life out of home and his talent.

    Can’t believe Brad’s birthday is tomorrow. I’ll have to watch a lot of his movies to celebrate. He has a great life. Angie/kids.. it took kissing a lot of frogs to get the real Prize.. but man it was all worth it.

    They’re the biggest couple in Hollywood – so much so that they even have their own hybrid name.But now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been immortalised in wax.The film stars, known as Brangelina, have been honoured with up-to-date models at Madame Tussauds in London.
    .
    Jolie, 38, appears in a blue silk ball gown with a high slit revealing her right leg, in homage to the dress she wore at the Oscars in 2012. An image of the original dress went viral, with Jolie’s right leg becoming a viral sensation, subject of several Twitter accounts. Meanwhile her husband-to-be Pitt, with whom she has six children, is dressed in a sharp black suit.
    .
    The waxworks have been unveiled ahead of Fight Club star Pitt’s 50th birthday tomorrow.
    .
    The couple, who have been together for eight years, are rumoured to be planning four wedding celebrations in Australia, Los Angeles, the Bahamas and France.

    Werris Creek farewells movie-makers
    …………………………………………………
    .
    Posted 1 hour 6 minutes ago
    ..
    Werris Creek has farewelled the Hollywood actor and director, Angelina Jolie, and the crew associated with the filming of the movie, Unbroken. Century-old rail carriages used in a scene at the Werris Creek Railway Station pulled out around 9:00am on Tuesday to return to Thirlmere’s Rail Museum, south of Sydney.
    .
    Workers are currently taking down sets and producers, cast and crew are leaving the farming community. President of Werris Creek’s Rail Journeys Museum, Chris Holley, says it’s been a remarkable experience.
    .
    “It went off brilliantly and people were so excited and I’ve never seen so many old costumes in all my life and for the scene where the star was farewelled, well, the majority of the extras came from all over the North and North West,” he said.
    .
    “There were people from Armidale, from Coonabarabran, people came from Sydney [and] some of the extras had to report at 3:30am for make-up and dressing.” Chris Holley says there were 10 to 15 coaches to transport the extras from their unit base in the grounds of the Catholic Church at Werris Creek.
    .
    “Most of the shop front’s have gone and the [Torrance] movie theatre, which was really the Railway Hotel, has gone off into infinity.” he said. “It’s a mammoth task and one can only guess at the amount of money that it must have cost to come to Werris Creek.”
    .
    Chris Holley says his experience of Angelina Jolie was her easy-going nature. “She was thrilled at the reception she received here and she just walked among the people,” he said. “What a thrill to think our little town’s been given such a boost.”

    Madam Tussauds unveils new ‘Brangelina’ figures ahead of Brad Pitt’s 50th birthday

    Alain Tolhurst Tuesday, December 17, 2013

    New waxworks of one of the world’s most famous celebrity couples, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, are to be unveiled at Madame Tussauds today. The finishing tuuches are applied for the new wax figure of Brad Pitt.
    ,
    The London attraction said the current figures of the Hollywood actors, known as ‘Brangelina’, are some of the most popular on display, and have decided to update their look ahead of heartthrob Brad’s 50th birthday tomorrow. The finishing touches are being made to Angelina’s waxwork, which is wearing a floor-length blue gown with one shoulder exposed, teamed with black high heels.
    .
    Her twice Oscar-nominated partner is wearing a stylish black three piece suit with his hair noticeably longer than the last time Tussauds tried to capture his likeness as he reaches his half-century. The figures have taken the team of sculptors, colourists and hair and make up artists four months to complete at a cost of £150,000 each.
    .
    A spokesman for Madame Tussauds said the new Brad and Angelina will be featured in the attraction’s ‘party area’ with an impressive line up of stars. These include Brad’s best buddy, George Clooney, and fellow superstar names like Morgan Freeman, Kate Winslet, Daniel Craig and Helen Mirren.
    .
    “Our current figures of Brad and Angelina are amongst the most popular in the attraction and receive a lot of attention,” said PR manager, Nicole Fenner. “But they were created over eight years ago, so Brad’s 50th seems the perfect time to welcome two new figures of the world famous stars to the attraction. Madame Tussauds said the current figures for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are amongst the most popular in the attraction. “We’ll be portraying them at their ‘red carpet’ best when they take up residence.”

    Southeastern film critics pick ’12 Years a Slave’ as year’s best (full SEFCA awards listing)
    —————————————————————–

    .

    “12 Years a Slave,” director Steve McQueen’s New Orleans-shot adaptation of the memoirs of Solomon Northup, dominated the 2013 Southeastern Film Critics Association annual awards, announced this morning (Dec. 16). In addition to finishing atop the group’s list of the top 10 films of 2013, McQueen’s film earned the awards for best actor (for Chiwetel Ejiofor), best supporting actress (for Lupita Nyong’o), best director (for McQueen) and best adapted screenplay (for John Ridley).
    .
    In addition, Jared Leto’s performance in the New Orleans-shot “Dallas Buyers Club” earned him yet another award for best supporting actor, making him an early favorite to grab the corresponding Oscar. Cate Blanchett was named best actress for her performance in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine.” Also, Director Jeff Nichols’ “Mud” earned the group’s Wyatt Award, named in memory of SEFCA charter member Gene Wyatt and awarded annually to the film that best captures the spirit of the South. In the process, Nicholls — who is currently prepping his “Midnight Special” in New Orleans — becomes the first two-time Wyatt winner in the nine-year history of the award. He previously won in 2008 for “Shotgun Stories.”
    .
    “Jeff is a great storyteller in the Southern tradition and ‘Mud’ is a film that stands in the tradition of Mark Twain, William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor — filtered through a visual sensibility that recalls Terence Malick,” SEFCA President Phillip Martin said in announcing the results. “I’m proud that SEFCA recognized him early.”
    Mike Scott has ‘The One’ movie for this week. Nola.com | The Times-Picayune’s movie critic Mike Scott picks ‘Mud’ as the movie to see in this week’s ‘The One’.
    .
    The SEFCA Awards are bestowed annually by the Southeastern Film Critics Association, which is made up of professional film critics in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. (Note: I am a voting member.) This year, 51 critics cast votes.
    .
    “While ’12 Years a Slave’ was a clear-cut winner, the voting indicates that this is an exceptionally deep year for the movies,” Martin said. “Eighty-one different films received votes.”The full list of 2013 award winners follows, including names of runners-up, where applicable.

    Houston Film Critics Honor 12 Years a Slave and Gravity as top picks
    —————————————————————-

    Members of the Houston Film Critics Society divided their love between 12 Years a Slave and Gravity in their annual awards.
    .
    The critics picked Slave as the best film of 2013 and honored Chiwetel Ejiofor as Best Actor, Lupita Nyong’o as Best Supporting Actress, and John Ridley for Best Screenplay. The film, a harrowing look at slavery in pre-Civil War America, is based on a memoir by Solomon Northup.
    .
    Gravity, the ultimate “lost in space” movie, picked up five awards, including Best Actress Sandra Bullock and Best Director Alfonso Cuaron. These two movies for us represent not just the best film had to offer this year but also the great variety of film being produced, from incredible pieces of spectacle to the minimalism of Slave,” HFCS President Joshua Starnes said in a press release announcing the picks. “This was the closest the voting for director has been in the HFCS’ history.”
    .
    Other major awards went to Jared Leto as Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, Disney’s Frozen for Best Animated Film, Denmark’s The Hunt as Best Foreign Film and 20 Feet From Stardom as Best Documentary. “Please Mr. Kennedy” from the Coen Bros.’ Inside Llewyn Davis was named Best Original Song while Adam Sandler received his second Worst Film award for Grown Ups 2.
    .
    The awards, which will be presented at the Museum of Fine Arts-Houston on Jan. 4, include a special tribute to Eric Harrison, the former chief film critic for the Houston Chronicle, and a founding member of the HFCS, who passed away on Nov. 16. The Coen Brothers will be the recipients of the HFCS Lifetime Achievement Award and Edward James Olmos will receive the HFCS Humanitarian of the Year Award.

    12 Years A Slave Screenwriter John Ridley Talks Solomon Northup, Human Faith, and Lost History
    ——————————————————————-

    Dec. 16 2013

    .

    Last Wednesday night, the OC Film Society hosted a near-full house audience at the Lido theater in Newport Beach to screen the critically-acclaimed feature film 12 Years A Slave. Gregg Schwenk, of OCFS and the Newport Beach Film Festival, introduced the film and announced to the audience that screenwriter John Ridley would be present after the screening for a q-&-a session. Following that segment, individual audience members crowded up in awe to Ridley, writer and director of film, theater and television, for a closer glimpse and the chance to exchange words. Afterwards, Ridley was gracious enough to speak with me for a lively discussion about the film. 12 Years A Slave is out now in theaters, so don’t delay on checking it out!
    .
    OC Weekly [OCW]: This is the second time I’ve seen this film, and it’s still so powerful and engaging, I’ve teared up…
    ———————–
    John Ridley [JR]:Leave that to the source material, it really was a powerful story that Solomon told. We’re going back to Telluride and the fact that people are still interested in it and want to talk about it and it still affects people, its very gratifying, it really is.
    ———————
    .
    [OCW]: I think it will be in conversations for a long time, not just for the story but the storytelling, the filmmaking, [Director Steve] Mcqueen’s approach to it as well. He’s a filmmaker who thinks like an artist and takes into account all the visual devices into his method.

    [JR]: Absolutely, his approach and the creative team that he works with- you know I can’t say enough about [Director of Photography] Sean Bobbitt, and [Editor] Joe Walker, and the moments they were able to find as well, that’s what I think was really special about the film, that it was a team effort in the sense that it was very communicative. People really built on ideas and were very honorific to Solomon’s memoir in terms of some of the shots where it lingered. And in the memoir, where Solomon is hanging for the day, he talks about what it was like to be there all day long, and to create a moment on film that really replicates that is very powerful. So it was a special process for me, and it was a really special group of people that i had the opportunity to work with.
    .

    [OCW]: So when you and McQueen were talking about making the film, what was the one constant about Solomon’s story that needed to be represented in film?

    [JR]: For me more than anything it was his character, it was an individual who was put in circumstances that are so alien to my own, and certainly alien to what he had experienced at that time, but he never gives up faith in a system that had betrayed him, he never gives up faith that his family will at some point be able to find him and help him, he uses every aspect of himself, his wits, his guiles, his physicality, to survive and to me that aspect of human nature, that aspect to survive and thrive, as he says, “I don’t want to just survive, I want to live,” that was very compelling to me, and I think its very important for people in 2013 to be reminded that as a nation we’ve been through difficult circumstances, but we’ve managed and we can get through anything if we use the best of ourselves.
    .

    [OCW]: Seeing this film for the second time, and even the first time, I felt this overwhelming sense of calmness; When you were reading Mr. Northup’s book, was there that same sense of calmness that presided over his writing as well?

    [JR]: That’s a very good question, yes there was, it was very interesting to me how objective in some places he could be about his circumstances and what he went through; I could only to a degree imagine if I went through this, and the very raw emotions I would carry with me, I would have this bitterness and anger and a very tortured sense of what I’d been through. Solomon didn’t have that, he wrote with a beauty and a reserve, and a sense of wonder as though that was not the American nature, that was not the nature of people, that that was an aberration, and that he knew that we as a people could get beyond that; I found that to be very, very beautiful. He was a transcended individual and that speaks to his nature and his ability to process that.
    .

    [OCW]: One of the heartbreaking things in watching this film in the beginning was Solomon trying to process everything that was happening to him while being in denial, even so far as defending his captors in saying, “No, they’re artists! They are probably inquiring and searching for me right now.” In the scene where he argues with Eliza [Adepero Oduye] about forgetting her children, he insists that Master Ford [Benedict Cumberbatch] is a decent man, but she gives him this reality check, basically saying, “He’s not going to look out for you, you are still his property.” It seemed to break his spirit, because he had so much trust in people and they just turned their backs on him.

    [JR]: That’s the amazing and sad thing about his circumstances, that he had trust, he believed in peoples’ better nature and that ultimately is tested, and the evolution of this character in some ways is so subtle. “Can I maintain my trust, when I meet one last person who could potentially be the keys to my freedom, can I give myself over to this individual as much as I’ve been betrayed, as many horrible things that I’ve seen, do I still believe in the better nature of people?” The fact that Solomon does not give up, again, that was a message that I wanted people to see. We know that at that time that system was brutal, many people didn’t know how brutal it is, but we also don’t think know how much faith individuals have. Can you imagine being someone who is taken from their home, whether it was upstate New York or Africa, being put in a system where there was no grievance, no courts, no system of redressing what had happened to you. But still having faith, still praising God, still singing to God, still believing that one day, if not your children or your children’s children then perhaps your great great grandchildren would see some measure of equality, never giving up on any of those ideals.
    .
    [OCW]: Speaking again on the sense of calmness, I think something that added to that were just these still shots of the landscape, almost as though the setting itself were a character in the film.

    [JR]: And in some ways it was, that geography, again if you can imagine going from upstate New York to a place where there’s great expanse, where the climate is different, where the sounds are different, the insects, the air, all of those elements. One of the amazing things about this story is that it is so dehumanizing in some areas and so brutal but it’s set against a canvas that is so beautiful and a landscape that in many ways was so untouched. I think it was very important, and such wonderful choices were made in the cinematography, to set much of the story against a landscape that is so beautiful and serene, so counterpoint to the elements that were so difficult.
    .
    [OCW]: Is your background mostly in creative writing and theater?

    [JR]: Yes, well actually I graduated from NYU and my major was East Asian Languages and Cultures so getting here is something I’ve always had a desire to do. For me one of the things that I took away from my experience in university was more about having an intellectual curiosity and wanting to find more and do more and explore more and where it takes me, sometimes people can see and relate to it and other times for me its more about the process, even the end result.
    .
    [OCW]: I’ve read McQueen and yourself in other interviews say “Why haven’t I heard of this story before?” at the discovery of Solomon Northup’s book, which was a bestseller for its time. Its so interesting, in even negative ways, that through the larger narrative of history stories and voices like these could buried under the rug.

    [JR]: I’ve gone from this point from saying ‘Why haven’t I heard this story before’ to ‘what other stories have I not heard?’ There are so many stories, and it is really important that we start thinking about these stories not just as Black American history or Hispanic history or Asian history, Asian American history, but as OUR history. As we start to realize that and as we start to tell these stories because they’re shared experiences, I think they’re going to take on a cultural density. So I’m excited for the things I’m going to learn next, I feel like in many ways we’ve done this, we’ve told this, I’m so thankful that people responded to it, but I’m so curious to see what other people have to say and how they’re going to present it. I’m so hopeful for movies in the future because they’re going to be different things that are going to be told and all different kinds of individuals that are going to be telling those stories.
    .
    [OCW]: With this subject matter, did you feel a sense of responsibility in bringing about Mr. Northup’s story, as well as the larger narrative of slavery in America?

    [JR]: In sitting down and the first time that I read it, it was exceptionally powerful. And in the first few passes of thinking about how to approach this story, naturally you think about how monumental it is in regards to what slavery is about and someone else’s narrative. But ultimately for me I set that aside, because I could not presuppose that I as an individual had something monumental to say, I mean that’s a lie. Ultimately what I wanted to say was, what would i say to my boys about character? About responsibility? And about faith in a system and about where they came from not just as black Americans but as Americans. And for me when you get reductive its not about trying to speak to 6 billion people, but just to talk to two people. Then i could see the path that i wanted to take just more clearly.
    .
    [OCW]: This has been a seminal year for filmmaking for people of color. Do you think audiences are more receptive now to these perspectives and these voices than ever before?

    [JR]: I would say audiences have always shown a capacity be receptive to these stories, going back to The Color Purple or Glory, there’s always been an audience, it’s been up to Hollywood to catch up with the fact that America is a big country filled with lots of different people. There’s not one group that’s gonna respond to this film or that film when films become truly hit films when they go from making 30 million dollars or so to making 60, 70, 100 million dollars, its because all kinds of people respond to it. So I’m not surprised that in this year you have films as diverse as Fruitvale Station or 12 Years, or Instructions Not Included that did very, very well. I’m surprised that its taken this long to get there, and I certainly don’t believe in a quota system, but when you look at the Hispanic population versus the number of films that come out that either speak directly to that experience or just feature actors of that dissent. The moment that people of color, black people are having right now, technically we should have had this in the nineties. We need to move that storytelling forward a little bit. I think that it will accelerate but I also think it needs to accelerate and I have no doubt that audiences will respond equally to films by Asian Americans, Hispanics, just as they’ve responded to films by black people.

    12 Years a Slave’ wins big with Kansas City Film Critics film critics
    —————————————————————————-

    .
    Steve McQueen’s 19th-century saga “12 Years a Slave” dominated voting among members of the Kansas City Film Critics Circle on Sunday with six awards.

    .
    The true story of a free African-American man who is kidnapped and sold into slavery won best picture, actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor), supporting actress (Lupita Nyong’o), supporting actor (Michael Fassbender) and adapted screenplay (John Ridley).
    .
    McQueen tied for best director with Alfonso Cuaron of the space odyssey “Gravity.”“Gravity” pulled in a second award: Sandra Bullock won best actress for playing a stranded astronaut.
    .
    Writer/director Spike Jonze won best original screenplay for “Her,” in which a lonely writer (Joaquin Phoenix) falls in love with his computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). The film also won the Vince Koehler Award for Best Fantasy, Science Fiction or Horror Film. It’s playing in a few cities and opens in Kansas City on Jan. 10.

    .
    “12 Years a Slave” has done well in the national awards season as well. Last week, it tied with the ’70s con artist dramedy “American Hustle” for seven Golden Globe nominations and topped the Screen Actors Guild nominations with four. Academy Award nominations will be announced Jan. 16.

    New Treatments Highlighted as San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium Opens
    ————————————————————————-

    Good news is circulating at the San Antonio Convention Center today, as some 7,000 oncologists, therapists, and cancer researcher gather for the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, 1200 WOAI news reports.“We have seen consistent declines in breast cancer mortality over the past decade,” Dr. Jyoti Patel of the American Society of Clinical Oncology told 1200 WOAI news in advance of the meeting, which begins today. She points out developments in new markers that predict breast cancer and it recurrence, as well as increased use of ‘precision medicine’ to treat breast cancer.
    .
    Patel says a new goal of oncologists is not just to defeat the cancer, but also to reduce the pain and discomfort felt by cancer patients during treatment. “We know that we can make changes in the ways we can deliver radiation, and we can forgo radiation entirely for some women after they have undergone their treatment for early stage disease,” she said.In fact, some of the seminars in the conference, which runs through Friday, involve new developments in how radiation and chemotherapy may be avoided, how exercise can help improve drug-associated joint pain in breast cancer survivors, and now research on the frequency and types of breast cancer screening which are the most effective.
    .
    Another topic at the event will be what has been called the ‘Angelina Jolie Effect,’ the use of prophylactic mastectomies to prevent the occurrence and possible spread of breast cancers in women who have a family history of the disease.This has led to a new category of breast cancer patients, known a the ‘worried well.’ They are women who don’t have breast cancer, but frequently live in fear of getting it, and dealing with the potential of the breast cancer spreading.
    .
    Patel says all of this has combined to make this the Golden Age of cancer treatment. “We will see 1.6 million Americans diagnosed with cancer this year, and we know we will have more survivors than ever before.”

    Chiwetel Ejiofor and Idris Elba face off for film glory

    Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years a Slave’ is film awards front-runner
    ———————————————
    .
    17/12/2013 01:43 PM

    .
    THE GLOVES are off as British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is up against old friend and rival Idris Elba for personal glory in the film awards season.
    Ejiofor, 36, has been applauded for his depiction as a free-born black man forced into slavery in 19th-century America in the film 12 Years A Slave, and has been nominated for best actor at next month’s Golden Globes against fellow Londoner Elba, who plays Nelson Mandela in the biopic Long Walk to Freedom.
    This year, 12 Years A Slave scored nominations in multiple categories, including best picture, best director for Steve McQueen, best supporting actor for Michael Fassbender, best supporting actress for newcomer Lupita Nyong’o and best acting ensemble.
    .
    Speaking at a special screening at Cineworld Haymarket last night, Ejiofor, a former Dulwich College pupil, told The Evening Standard: “I love Idris and his work and I’ve known him for 20 years so I’m very excited for him and his film.
    “I was talking to him not long ago and we were reflecting on the privilege of getting to play these extraordinary people and to find audiences for those portrayals is incredible.”
    .
    The film 12 Years A Slave directed the British McQueen, is based on the 1853 memoirs of Solomon Northup, a New York State-born free black man who was kidnapped in Washington DC in 1841 and sold into slavery.
    Ejiofor, whose parents are Nigerian, added: “People come to the film with an open mind and they recognise that these are people who are telling the story from the perspective of a diaspora as well as specific nations all of which were involved in the slave trade, be that Britain or the West Indies, or Nigeria where my heritage is and where hundreds of thousands of slaves came from.”
    .
    Ejiofor and Elba are also rivals for the best actor in a TV movie or mini-series category for their respective performances in Dancing On The Edge and Luther.
    The film is released in Britain on January 10 and The Golden Globes awards ceremony takes place two days later on January 12.

    LOL, Pothead’s desperation to be credited for 12YAS success makes him look like a sore loser, and we know the Academy doesn’t like desperate candidates. We know that as the egomaniac that he is, he could not content himself with being one of seven producers, and nearly ruined the film with his performance when he demanded to have a part in it.

    Truth is a crackhead could’ve been the owner of the book rights and McQueen would’ve still made the same acclaimed film. What’s really funny is how loons are so ridiculously stubborn and delusional about 12YAS success, as if McQueen or Ejiofor’s commitment, talent and skills had anything to do with Pothead. They continue to credit Pothead for the nominations it’s receiving despite knowing that it was McQueen’s vision and perseverance what made the difference. What an embarrassing display of ignorance in this day and age! LOL.

    Fight Club author gets a reaction
    ———————————————-
    .
    December 17, 2013, 11:42 am
    .

    Chuck Palahniuk has released 12 novels since Fight Club. Writing is a blood sport for Chuck Palahniuk. The prolific 51-year-old author is best known for 1996 novel Fight Club, which was turned into a punch-drunk Gen-X movie classic starring Brad Pitt and Ed Norton three years later, and has spent this year promoting his latest book, Doomed.
    .
    When he should be talking up his latest offering, the middle of a trilogy about snarky, dead 13-year-old Madison Spencer taking on Satan, Palahniuk usually spends his readings trying to get a visceral reaction out of his fans. “This year I’m making people cry,” he says cheerfully down the line from his home in Portland, Oregon. “This year’s story has made all these young people sob – it’s wonderful.”
    .
    Palahniuk is referring to Zombies, published in US Playboy magazine last month. Previous short stories, such as Guts (which originally appeared in 2005 tome Haunted) made listeners faint, while most recent gory story Cannibal (also featured in Playboy) was designed to make people feel “icky”. “There is nothing better than people fainting, laughing or crying,” the cult author chuckles. “You can still say a story out loud and it’ll have the same effect stories used to have on us when we were children. We can give each other these really strong reactions that we get so seldom as adults.”
    .
    While people might vomit, faint or cry, Palahniuk himself is writing primarily “to process emotional issues that I can’t resolve and I can’t tolerate”. Beginning two years ago with Damned, his current trilogy melds Dante’s Divine Comedy and Gulliver’s Travels with the movies, The Breakfast Club and The Parent Trap.”On a metaphorical level, it is about bringing God and the Devil back together,” Palahniuk begins. “And in resolving their f…ed up relationship, Madison will resolve all conflict in all of creation, therefore turning everything into Paradise. But on a personal level, it’s about that fantasy I had as a child of getting my parents to fall back in love and get married again. It’s The Parent Trap.” (Palahniuk’s parents separated when he was 14.)
    .
    A journalist who began writing fiction in his mid-30s and has released 12 novels since Fight Club, Palahniuk started the promotional tour for Doomed back in June. “This is my last work thing. As soon as we’re done, I get to drink,” he says.
    After that drink, he won’t be turning his twisted psyche back to Madison Spencer and hell, but a tale left hanging in glorious chaos nearly 20 years ago.
    .
    “Right now I’m setting everything aside so that I can work on the Fight Club sequel,” he says. “It’s a graphic novel and it revisits the Narrator . . . he’s married, he’s got a kid and he’s on enormous amounts of psychoactive drugs to kind of suppress the Tyler (Durden) aspect of himself and because of that, he and (wife) Marla haven’t had sex in months, maybe a year.
    .
    “Marla starts to monkey with his medications so that the Tyler part of him will slowly emerge and she can finally get f…ed like crazy – and that’s what lets the genie out of the bottle.” For those unfamiliar with the book and film: the Narrator is an office drone suffering insomnia until the arrival of the unsavoury yet exciting presence of the nihilist Tyler Durden. The complex tale – all of Palahniuk’s works defy one- paragraph descriptions – involved themes of masculinity and alienation.
    .
    Like the Narrator, Palahniuk visited support groups as part of his research process.”I’m really fascinated by the context of a story, especially a story that is non-flattering. Where do we go to tell stories that make us look like a…holes? “My theory is that we used to be able to go to church. You went to church and you publicly made your confession and your community recognised the worst aspects of you and forgave you and welcomed you back. The church doesn’t really do that anymore.
    .
    “Now, I think, support groups, 12-step groups, recovery groups – they all serve the function that church used to. They let you present your worst self and then they say ‘We still love you, come back’.”Given Palahniuk’s fascination with the church, the after-life and morality, is he religious?Boy, I am, but don’t nail me down for a religion,” he says. “I was raised Catholic but I haven’t gone to church in years.” He pauses before admitting: “OK, I went to church a couple of months ago”. Why? “Because I really wanted to study the structure of how Mass is presented.”
    .
    When asked about the weirdest or most dangerous thing he’s done while researching for a book, Palahniuk simply says: “Autopsies.” He’s equally succinct when asked to name the favourite of his own books. “I really liked Pygmy. I think Pygmy was such a strange, broken book and I got to invent all of my language.” Despite his in-depth and often unusual preparation for each new novel, Palahniuk rarely knows where his stories will end.”I always know when the second act is going to end,” he explains. “Beyond that, I don’t know anything . . . that’s the part that’s exciting for me.
    .
    “I feel like I’m reading the story at that point, rather than writing it. It’s so new. It’s happening in the moment. I’m not really intellectually thinking about the story, it’s just kind of writing itself.”
    After going to hell with first two-thirds of the Damned trilogy, Palahniuk is relishing the chance to revisit the world of Fight Club. “I’m exploring the same muscle . . . it’s a fascinating process. I’m tired of just doing one book and then never seeing those characters again.”
    .
    Does he have to like characters such as Tyler Durden or Madison Spencer to spend that much time with them? “No, I think it’s always more fun if you hate the characters,” he laughs. “I hated all the characters in Haunted. I wasn’t a big fan of Tyler Durden either but I think you have more freedom with a character you hate.”
    .
    The fearless writer agrees that Fight Club is the best movie based one of his novels but says Choke – the 2008 adaptation starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston – had promise but “ran out of money”.
    .
    There are moves afoot to turn Invisible Monsters and Snuff into movies. The latter raises eyebrows, among other things, as the 2008 tome centred around a porn star trying to set a world record for gang- banging 600 men. Despite a director and actors – Wikipedia says Daryl Hannah and Tom Sizemore – being attached to the project, surely Snuff is impossible to make as a mainstream film. “They said that about Fight Club, too,” says Palahniuk, who is remarkably sanguine about straddling the worlds of literature and cinema. “I’m so in love with the process of writing a book that everything else is gravy.”
    .
    The gay writer also enjoys the cycle of writing and promotion – or “alone” and “together”, as he calls it in the intro to the compilation of his essays, Non-Fiction. He says it’s important not to get stuck in either place for too long. “I see a lot of writers who fall in love with going out in the world and being celebrated,” Palahniuk says. “It’s so hard for them to come back to actually do the work.” His work on Doomed and this interview done, the author promises to visit Australia for the first time next year and reaches for that drink.”I’m about to have a giant glass of red wine,” Palahniuk says.A big bloody red, no doubt. Doomed is published by Jonathan Cape ($29.95).

    Teaser Trailer: Disney’s Maleficent: Evil Wears Fur
    —————————————————————–

    Maleficent is a nasty piece of work. She curses a princess, Aurora, to prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die before her 16th birthday. She wears black, has horns on her hat. She is sensational. Disney’s live action interpretation of Maleficent, based on their own adaptation of the Wicked Fairy Godmother in Sleeping Beauty (1959), has just released a teaser trailer.
    .
    The film follows the story of how Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie) came to be, from a beautiful kind-hearted girl to the twisted Mistress of Evil, similar in some respects to the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz. Basically a good gal gone bad, and who doesn’t love a good gal gone bad?
    .
    Costuming Maleficent is Anna B. Sheppard. With films such as Schindler’s List (1993), The Pianist (2002) and Inglourious ******** (2009) to her name, this Oscar nominated designer is a safe choice, in so much as we know she won’t let us down. It is not easy bringing an animated character into the real world.
    .
    After all Maleficent’s memorable cape and robes costume was never intended to be rendered in this way (many cosplayers have tried with varying degrees of success).
    .
    What little we see in this trailer falls mainly to Maleficent, though never a clear wide shot, and Aurora, (Elle Fanning), the object of her obsession, wearing a medieval inspired green wool dress.
    .
    Most notable is the thick trim of fur on Jolie’s costume around the neckline. It is a wintry, luxurious touch that makes Maleficent seem cold and remote, yet oddly lavish and desirable too. Her horns hat looks to be made of latex, or some variant.
    .
    No glimpse of purple at the moment. This footage is mainly about setting tone, which is dark to say the least, so hopefully we’ll get a better view of the costumes when someone switches on a light for a full trailer in the future. Maleficent is released on 30th May 2014.

No offense to Jared Leto…but I’d rather see Fassbender win BSA and have a TYAS sweep in the acting categories. Then there’s also the fact that Jared Leto annoys me. Awhile back I saw an interview with a couple of musicians who threw shade on Leto saying that he was “a 40 year-old man…but I want my music to appeal to teenage girls” and basically told him to grow up. And then I saw pix of him hanging out with\dating Shailene Woodley who’s like 22. He needs to form a club with Leo, Closet Boy and Joaquin Phoenix – 40 yar-old grown ass men dating girls barely out of their teens who are apparently easily impressed by much older men trolling schoolyards.

    Disney Announces Live Action Villain Offspring Movie ‘Descendants’
    ————————————————————————————

    If anything is in right now at Disney, it’s reimaginings and villains. The most obvious examples are the hit ABC series ‘Once Upon A Time’ and the upcoming Angelina Jolie film ‘Maleficent’, but now the House of Mouse has announced a new project that combines the two trends together into one all-new live action Disney Channel original movie featuring the children of some of Disney’s most notorious villains.
    .
    According to a recent press release, Kenny Ortega of the ‘High School Musical’ films will direct ‘Descendants’, a fairytale take on the age-old nature versus nurture argument that involves the kids of classic villains Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, and Jafar as they wonder if they should follow in the evil footsteps of their parents or forge their own path of good. Here’s the description of the story written by ‘Runaway Bride’ team Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott:
    .
    In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic ‘Beauty and the Beast’) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie, and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?
    .
    As a huge Disney fan, I am all about this film’s concept. It’s like ‘Kingdom Hearts’ meets Brian K. Vaughn’s ‘The Runaways’ or ‘Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow’ set in a high school. And while some people look at DCOMs as second rate films, they’ve churned out some pretty fun films like ‘Brink’, ‘Johnny Tsunami’, and ‘High School Musical’ (Yeah, I said it!), so it’s very possible that this one could be a winner too.
    .
    Currently, casting for ‘Descendants’ is underway and it’s scheduled for a Spring 2015 release, so we have a ton of time to speculate and let our imaginations run wild. For instance, what other Disney offspring do you hope to pop up in the film? Or better yet, what other villains would you want to cameo? (I’m wishing for Gaston and Hades.) Do you have any ideas for who could play the characters already announced? And how do you think their villainous parents will feel about their kids being exposed to the forces of good? Let’s hear all your thoughts and theories in the comment section!

    .
    This season’s multitudinous race may finally be getting some shape, as the critical and industry love add up. The Broadcast Film Critics Association, which bills itself as the largest critics group in the United States and Canada, announced its picks Monday, and members were evenly split between “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave,” which both earned 13 nominations, including best picture, director, actor, screenplay (original and adapted, respectively) and ensemble.
    .
    The same two films also tied in nominations at the Golden Globes, which may position them as front-runners.For the broadcast prizes, televised as the Critics Choice Awards, “Gravity” was another top finisher, with 10 nominations, including all the biggies.
    .
    The group’s list of 10 best picture hopefuls mirrors almost exactly that of the American Film Institute: In addition to “12 Years,” “Hustle” and “Gravity,” they both chose “Her,” “Wolf of Wall Street,” “Captain Phillips,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and “Nebraska.” The broadcasters went with “Dallas Buyers Club” while AFI picked “Fruitvale Station” to round out its list.
    .
    On the Weinstein Company front, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” scored three nominations and “August: Osage County four. They won’t contend as best picture but they could earn best ensemble (as they might at the Screen Actors Guild Awards).
    Also Monday, the Online Film Critics Society announced its winners, with “12 Years a Slave” getting the most votes. That echoes the assessment of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, the Kansas City Film Critics Circle, and the Houston Film Critics Society.
    .
    The African-American Film Critics Association also went with “12 Years a Slave” as its No. 1 film.

    The Biggest Movie Headlines of 2013

    —————————————————–

    .

    December 17, 2013

    .

    The past year in entertainment has been an eventful one, with box office records broken, exciting movies (and equally exciting movie casting) announced, and much more that made us happy to be film fans. It wasn’t all good news, though; there were box office flops, and heartbreakingly, we lost a few beloved members of the movie industry too soon.

    As we look back on 2013, let’s retread the biggest movie headlines of the year now.

    .

    World War Z is Brad Pitt’s Biggest Movie Ever

    ——————————————–

    .

    World War Z may not have debuted at No. 1 at the box office in June, but Brad Pitt’s zombie thriller still fought its way to victory. The film’s worldwide gross hit $540 million by August, making it Pitt’s biggest box office earner to date. We knew you could do it, Brad!

    Published: 18 December, 12:03 AM
    .
    SINGAPORE – Based on the 1853 autobiography of the same name, 12 Years A Slave stars British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor in a career-defining role as Solomon Northup, a free African American man from upstate New York who is abducted and sold into slavery. He is re-named Platt and purchased as a slave, first by a plantation owner (Benedict Cumberbatch), and then a vicious slave owner (Michael Fassbender). Brad Pitt, who also produces the movie, makes a brief appearance as a Canadian laborer, in whom Northup eventually confides.

    .

    12 Years A Slave, directed by British filmmaker Steve McQueen, is by no means an easy film to watch, nor is it meant to be. There are moments in the film where the camera holds on to uncomfortably long, lingering shots of barbarous violence, sometimes against the backdrop of laughter and normalcy. This means you are literally forced to stare in the face of the slave trade’s senseless brutality – forced to take an unflinching look at your own place in history, and to contemplate its profound injustice.

    .

    In one particularly memorable scene, we pause on Northup for what feels like minutes. He does not move or say anything, but we sense everything – his aching longing for his family, his desperation, his solitude, and his biggest question of all: why?

    .

    Even at the end – and you know the torment does end for Northup at least, because of, well, the title – we couldn’t help but feel a sense of gratitude, guilt and emptiness. Gratitude to McQueen, for telling Northup’s story. Guilt, because the human race has blood on its hands for allowing the savagery to continue for several hundred years.

    .

    And empty, for knowing that in some parts of the world, in the some way or another, the injustice still lives on. If 12 Years A Slave isn’t Oscar bait, we don’t know what is.

    Once Hollywood’s Best Kept Secret, Chiwetel Ejiofor Is Now a Name to Remember
    ——————————————————————–

    .

    December 17, 2013 | 10:00AM PT

    Associate Editor, Features @JenelleRiley

    .

    Chiwetel Ejiofor has finally arrived. And the proof comes when he doesn’t — at least not immediately.

    He is now 15 minutes late for his breakfast interview. The owner of the Beverly Hills cafe is anxiously awaiting the appearance of the actor, whose reservation was made in his name. “We’re trying really hard not to freak out,” she quietly confides to a journalist.

    .

    Ejiofor laughs good-naturedly when the story is relayed to him. He’s still not quite used to all the attention, but feels fortunate that people have responded so positively to his new film “12 Years a Slave,” for which he has collected top actor awards from several critics groups and nominations from SAG and the Golden Globes. His standout performance as the film’s lead character, Solomon Northup, a free man kidnapped and sold into slavery, is considered a surefire bet for an Oscar nom.

    .

    “There are many different ways the public can respond to actors — they can see you on TV and feel they know you and own you, and there can be something quite cornering about that,” he notes. “No doubt the energy around me has increased remarkably lately, but it’s always been from a place of loving and connecting to this film.”

    Though Ejiofor has been acting for two decades, gaining recognition as the lead in Stephen Frears’ 2002 dark crime thriller “Dirty Pretty Things,” it is his role in “12 Years a Slave” that’s thrust the 36-year-old actor into the limelight. Independently financed by River Road Entertainment, New Regency and Britain’s Film 4 for about $20 million, the Fox Searchlight release has garnered nearly $40 million domestically since its Oct. 18 debut, and the film’s box office is sure to grow as the awards pile up.

    .

    Unlike others who might be compelled to seize the moment, the British actor doesn’t feel the need to instantly capitalize on his newfound stature. “I’ve been working as an actor for 20 years, and I have to really connect to something before I’ll sign on,” he says. “I can’t change that process just because there’s some kind of requirement to push it. I have to find the right connection, and that can be rare, whether a million people are phoning me or the phone is silent.”

    .

    Growing up in London, Ejiofor always saw himself as a stage actor only. “I’d never really considered film,” he confides. “If I’d thought about film more growing up, I probably would have changed my name. I had no concept of my name in lights.”

    .

    In fact, one significant benefit to his newfound fame is in the pronunciation department.

    “I’ve noticed people are growing in confidence about how to say my name,” he admits with a chuckle (it’s CHOO-it-tell EDGE-ee-oh-for). And more and more, he says, they’re getting it right. He does not care for the nickname “Chewy,” despite what you may have read. But it’s only in recent years that he’s started to tell people that. “It was a nickname from school I didn’t really like, and it managed to follow me around. Finally I was like, ‘I don’t want to be a ****, but … ’ I try to do it with humor, if I can.”

    .

    He was born Chiwetelu Umeadi Ejiofor in London’s Forest Gate, to Nigerian parents; his father, Arinze, was a doctor; his mother, Obiajulu, a pharmacist. Though he was raised in London, his family kept close ties to Nigeria. It was while on a trip there when he was 11 years old that a car accident claimed the life of his father and the driver of their taxi. Though Ejiofor survived, he spent more than two months in a hospital recovering, and bears visible scars on his forehead.

    .

    He and his three siblings (the youngest of which is CNN correspondent Zain Asher) were raised by Obiajulu, who instilled a deep love of Shakespeare in Ejiofor; one of his first school plays was “Measure for Measure.” He was hooked. By age 17, he had enrolled in the National Youth Theatre, and two years later earned a scholarship to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He was only a few months into his studies when he landed the role of the translator in Steven Spielberg’s 1997 slavery epic “Amistad.”

    .

    Though the film brought him to America, he was eager to return to London and the theater. “I did take some meetings with agents and managers, but it never struck me as very genuine,” he recalls. “It all sounded a little forced and promise-heavy. So I decided it wasn’t for me.”

    .

    In 2000, he received glowing notices for his turn as Romeo in the Shakespearean tragedy and as a schizophrenic in “Blue/Orange.” It was the latter performance that caught the eye of director Frears and casting director Leo Davis, who were looking to cast the lead role of an African doctor residing illegally in London in “Dirty Pretty Things.” Davis recalls how the part was written for a 45-year-old man; Ejiofor was only 25. “I lied and said he was in his mid-30s,” she admits. “We had to fight to get him. There was immense pressure from the studio to go with an actor who was more of a name.” But Frears coveted Ejiofor, and held his ground.

    .

    Ironically, years later, one of the producers who opposed casting the actor wanted him for another movie. Says Davis, “In a few years, Chiwetel went from ‘This guy isn’t a name’ to ‘This guy is brilliant!’ ”

    Making “Dirty Pretty Things” inspired Ejiofor to reconsider a film career. “The whole experience opened up cinema in a way I hadn’t recognized before,” he says. “I found the depth and the nuance and the urgency of it. For the first time, I aggressively wanted to work in

    .

    Ejiofor met again with American agents and managers, noting that “the conversations seemed a little more grounded and part of the real world this time.” He signed with John Burnham at ICM, with whom he remained until moving to CAA earlier this year. Great directors, from Woody Allen (“Melinda and Melinda”) and Alfonso Cuaron (“Children of Men”) to Spike Lee (“She Hate Me,” “Inside Man”), came calling, and he booked supporting roles. In between, he made a memorable singing drag queen in the British comedy “Kinky Boots” and returned to the theater to play, among other gigs, the title role in “Othello” alongside Ewan McGregor.

    .

    When Joss Whedon cast him in 2005’s “Serenity,” the film spinoff of his TV show “Firefly,” lead actor Nathan Fillion remembers being thrilled. “We were all shocked and amazed, because it immediately classes up our project,” Fillion says. “We were a cancelled Fox show and he brought some real legitimacy to us.” Fillion found Ejiofor to be a generous presence on and off set. “He does what he does not just for himself, but so the whole thing works. He is built for this career. Some people find acting hard or difficult or are insecure about it. He is none of those things. I don’t think he finds acting hard; he just works hard at it.”

    Fillion recalls dining out with Ejiofor in London shortly before he was about to film “Kinky Boots.”

    .

    “He would break out into song in public — and loudly!” Fillion says. He was enjoying sauntering around, and his whole face would transform and it was brilliant to watch. If any of my friends were to do that, I would ask them to stop. But by the end of the night, I was requesting songs.”

    .

    Ejiofor’s first American lead came in David Mamet’s 2008 martial arts drama “Redbelt”; Mamet is a Burnham client, and the agent had introduced them years earlier. “We were in a restaurant and there’s this skinny kid and John says, ‘I want you to meet this kid, he’s the greatest actor in the world,’ ” Mamet recalls. “He told me his name; I couldn’t understand what the hell he was talking about. Then John sent me copies of ‘Dirty Pretty Things’ and ‘Kinky Boots’ and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this guy really is the greatest actor in the world.’ ”

    .

    Mamet made an offer to Ejiofor without asking for an audition. “Everything I do now, I call him up and ask him to be a part of,” says Mamet, who directed Ejiofor in the TV movie “Phil Spector” earlier this year, and says his dream is to direct “Hamlet” onstage starring Ejiofor. “We used to ask, ‘Why isn’t this guy a huge, huge star?’ I guess that question is answered by ‘12 Years a Slave.’ ”

    .

    Ejiofor’s schedule is insane — he has residences in Los Angeles and London, but he’ll spend the next four days in three different countries. He hasn’t made a film since “12 Years a Slave” wrapped in the summer of 2012, though he’s starred as the leader of a black jazz band in BBC miniseries “Dancing on the Edge,” a performance for which he received a second Golden Globes nomination Dec. 12. He also went to the Congo to research his role as Patrice Lumumba, the man who helped liberate the African nation from Belgian rule, for a London play, “A Season in the Congo,” directed by Joe Wright. His days are packed with meetings and press for “12 Years,” and he is considering his next move carefully.

    .

    He will always return to the stage. “It’s part of who I am. I wouldn’t be the same actor if I couldn’t do theater,” he says, noting he would like to try Broadway at some point. “I love the theater community and theater life, and would love to figure out the distinctive differences between Broadway and the West End.”
    He’s reticent to talk too much about any film projects he has in the works before anything is finalized. He is hoping to do a film adaptation of “A Season in the Congo” with Wright, whenever they can make the scheduling work.

    .

    With all the acclaim “12 Years” has brought Ejiofor, it’s interesting that when director Steve McQueen first offered him the role, he turned it down. The two had met a couple of times since McQueen’s 2008 debut, “Hunger,” to talk about other projects. While developing “12 Years” with writer John Ridley, Ejiofor’s name popped up. “His name was there from the beginning,” Ridley says. “He’s an actor’s actor, every step of the way.”

    .

    For Northup, McQueen says he knew he needed someone with a certain kind of stature, comparing Ejiofor to Sidney Poitier. “He had to be this presence to carry us through this territory of inhumanity,” says the filmmaker. “I knew he was the man to do it. I don’t know if he knew he was the man to do it, but I did.”

    McQueen admits he was caught off guard when Ejiofor first said no, but he had no backup plan — Ejiofor was his Northup. “I just had to give him time,” he says. “He called me a few days later and said, ‘I can’t get this out of my mind. I have to do this.’ ”

    .

    Ejiofor says he was “blown away” by the script and the book, but admits it wasn’t an immediate yes. He notes: “You can read a script sometimes and see yourself in it. This wasn’t like that. This was the first time I’d ever read a story that was from inside the slave experience. And I felt the responsibility and the weight and the significance of that. So you have that moment of self-doubt where you question if you’re the person to do it.”

    .

    It was re-reading the book that brought the actor around. “In the end, I realized I didn’t have to worry about telling the history of slavery, my job was to tell his story. So I went back to Steve and said, ‘I’d like to try.’”

    Aside from Ejiofor himself, there was no hesitation on anyone’s part about who should play the lead. Dede Gardner, a producer along with Brad Pitt at Plan B, who developed the project, says she, too, couldn’t imagine anyone else in the role. “Having been a longtime admirer of Chiwetel and very familiar with his body of work, we were completely supportive of him playing Solomon,” she notes. “There’s no one else who even comes to mind.”

    .

    Though the material was difficult, Ejiofor says the experience of making the film was amazing. “If you ever find it easy, you probably don’t want to be doing it,” he notes. “The challenge is in how you connect to the part.” He bonded with the other cast members, even playing paintball with Michael Fassbender (“Michael is a terror at it!”), with whom he shares a number of intense scenes.

    .

    With “12 Years” in theaters the same year as so many other acclaimed films starring black men, including “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “The Butler” and “Fruitvale Station,” Ejiofor recognizes it’s an exciting time for cinema. “What’s great is to see how different all these films are,” he says. “There have been attempts to bracket them together as all about the black experience, but what’s truly exciting is how varied they are.”

    LOL. The Urinator was a Class A Douchhebag. He probably still is. Just trying to hide it better. Very rarely do true asshats change their stripes. That’s why he’s boring now that he’s decided to grow up and grow a pair. I liked him much better when he was dumping Ticky on the streets of NYC and telling the world that Chestica is sexual napalm and saying Ticky was a boring old lady and he was still young and wanted to have fun. Now he’s sitting in Katy Perry’s kitchen petting her cat…which can’t be all that kind on Ticky’s ego since he didn’t want to sit in her kitchen and pet her dogs, so maybe he’s just being more subtle about shading his exes these days…

    Of course there’s a cut-off for these lists. There always is. That’s why they’re usually not accurate. I just thought it was funny that her shows aren’t selling out unless it’s in a big city but everyone else’s shows are selling out regardless of the city. Plus, as much as she charges I’m surprised her total isn’t higher. She’s not in Stones territory but it’s still pretty steep – much more than some of the others charge. Wonder what the overhead on these shows is? She’s got a big ensemble (as does Pink) plus sets and the work that goees into it beforehand, so when it’s all said and done she’s probably only clearling about 1/3 after expenses and before taxes.

She’s always calling the paps for photo ops but that’s one time they wouldn’t get a call from her…

    @Joseph:

    Oh I agree with you 100%, Joe. Yes, loons have escaped to live in a fantasy world, where the filthy Brand rules as standards of beauty, health and righteous living for all human kind. Loons have idealized them to the point of believing they have no problems, never make mistakes, are permanently beautiful, glamorous, happy and fulfilled. Loons escape their mundane lives by peeking into this vision of “perfection” that the Brand has concocted through a carefully staged PR stunts and photo ops over the course of the years, and they believe we all should do the same; death and illness come to those who won’t do it! Loons wholeheartedly believe the Brand deserves to be bowed down to and worshipped by all of us for eternity, because they’ve graced us with their unmatched beauty, only equal to their wisdom and compassion, because they touch the lives of lesser beings in need.

    Loons’ constant idiocy and personal investment in these vapid vvhores is what makes me laugh to no end and what keeps me coming back. I, like you, am always having fun. I gotta love their desperation; they’ll attack, harass and try to stalk you for expressing your views (I’ve been laughing for weeks as the stalking troll wastes her life away trying to find out who I am; she’s totally clueless). You know, I could never do the same; I don’t waste a single minute of my life trying to figure out the identity of these sick beasts, let alone sending out negative thoughts their way, despite of how much they may deserve it. I just let karma have its way with them. ;)

    I don’t know the reason of their relentless hatred towards us. All we do is point out the truth about their heathen idols, and ridicule them for constantly lying on their behalf, putting a spin on everything that is said about them, and trying to place the blame on others, all the while making vicious remarks about every other celebrity.

    Truth is, loons must have gone through countless unhappy situations on their way to adulthood to develop this mental illness -celebrity worship syndrome- which is what keeps their heads stuck up the asses of the two sleaziest, skankiest, most amoral celebrities that exist. What’s not to laugh about? :)

    How Advance Screenings Helped Form a Strategy for ’12 Years a Slave’
    The critical hit changed release plan after well-received screenings
    Jenelle Riley
    Associate Editor, Features

    Variety’s cover story this week is on Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave.” While the film has been earning raves since it’s secret premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, followed by winning the Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s also succeeded at the box office, more than doubling its $20-million budget.

    But it was never expected to be an easy sell, as it delivers an unflinching view of a dark chapter in American history. Developed by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, the film was independent co-financed by River Road Entertainment, New Regency and Britain’s Film 4. Dede Gardner, a producer at Plan B, says a big part of the strategy was finding the right distributor. And their hope was to partner again with Fox Searchlight, who had worked with Plan B on “Tree of Life.” Says Gardner, “It’s a group of people I know really well and admire and think are film lovers first. I dreamed they would be at the helm of this one. Fortunately, when they saw the film, they agreed.”

    According to Brad Weston, President and CEO of New Regency, the team knew they had a special film, and advanced screenings of the film only confirmed their beliefs. “In February, Steve and a group of us screened the movie in three different cities back to back to back, three nights in a row,” says Weston. “It was something I had never done before in all the movies I’ve worked on. And we learned so much in that week that it was just, it was remarkable.”

    Elaborates Weston, “We screened it in the South for an all African-American audience. We took it to the Midwest to an urban audience and an art house audience. And then we played it on the coast for an art house audience. And we got a real sense in that three day period how the movie was. And then we did it for an all African American audience in Los Angeles as well and we got a real sense in showing the picture that the film appealed to a broad audience and it wasn’t just an art house film and it wasn’t just an African-American film.”

    Following the screenings, Weston says they began to formulate their strategy, “I think before that, we had planned a late December release,” he reveals. “And once we saw the picture play during that period, we formulated a new strategy to take it to Telluride and Toronto and New York Film Festival.” He admits some of this was out of necessity, as both Pitt and Michael Fassbender had work commitments in the fall, and this gave them an opportunity to support the movie. “We just thought it was a really terrific strategy to get out early in October with the picture and the platform release that we did.”

    Weston and Gardner are both understandably thrilled with the result. “It’s remarkable how people have responded to the movie,” says Weston. Agrees Gardner, “You care deeply about the film and about how it’s reaching the world. You’re not entirely control of it, the audience is on the other side of the table. You do your best up until the point you release it into the world and you sit back and hope for the best.”

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    The public has seen BP go from the “pretty Brad” to the more mature and wise BP of today. After the headaches of failed public romances, a woman who tried to control him and used him for her own career transitional gain from TV to movies, a divorce, the unjustified public tabloid and blog attacks based on unsubstantiated ulterior motives and biased ops et al…yet to see him morph, literally raise his level of production and creativity and successfully move on in every aspect of his professional and personal life aka to become a satisfied accomplished actor, producer, father, competent decision maker and hands on overseer of charitable programs is all nothing less than admirable by anyone under the same circumstances. Those who by their own shallow, dark nature will always focus and dwell on the negative and relentlessly criticize when under the same stresses and public pressure they would unlikely fair as well…if at all stand above others in the same peer setting. Moreover those who feel the “necessity” to criticize the superficial appearance of another person as part of the natural aging process in the belief that others will be influenced and agree are inane to think even the average reader cannot spot a shallow claptrap of an immature mind. Moreover, if the respected personal goal is to be true to “yourself” and honest about your flaws…criticism or judgment of someone who is creating a fake image to “impress” the shallow masses who value a white bread persona aka fake colored aqua eyes, fake blonde hair coloring et al is fair game. BP is being his naturally aging self which commands more admirable respect than someone who tries to look 180 opposite of their biologically endowment at birth and/or who bangs their head repeated in a field they have no talent nor have been recognized by their fellow peers for single, not ensemble work, and especially not by public whimsy and/or media driven overkill.
    re: Observer2… “That interesting life began in 2005,” Neer…”It is because he is inspired to do things he likes. Angie also brings out the best in him. He found a woman who loves & supports him, NOT insults or downgrades him.” and # 95 Passing Through…”the interesting life began on Jan 1, 2004. The moment he met Angie – life suddenly got very interesting for Brad. It just took him a year to shed the ball and chain that was dragging him down…”
    IMO, you are all on track…relationships are complicated and divorce goes through the same five grieving process as death as described by Elizabeth Kubler Ross in 1969…shock/denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Some relationship psychologists toss in fear and guilt as two stages.
    From my POV based on readings of both their interviews and tv footage of award events et al, I suspect BP’s marriage was “h.e.l.l” for quite awhile but being the nice mid-western young man, it took some high level misery and exasperation to live within the confines of JA’s “control freak” insecurity as she attempted to “change him” into her power grasp (her definition of herself, In Style interview 2004). Most marriages or couplings are not “happy-happy” but tolerable in the guise of “all marriages have their problems” but despite the stats on divorce in the US, many more are unhappy but do not get a divorce…so for BP to have stayed with this control freak for as long as he did, it must have been a “level 10 turmoil and anguish for him to be closed off emotionally throughout most years of this suffocating marriage. From what I’ve read of both their interviews, he tried to get her to acknowledge the problems in their marriage but unbeknownst to him, “control freaks” are incapable of changing and as we know JA does not like (despite what she adamantly declares in interviews) or is unable to change aka eating the same lunch every day, same routine, et al. In fact, “control freaks” get more controlling and belligerent 1. with increasing age, 2. the more insecure they become and 3. as they see the one they want to control “slipping away” from their influence…that is when potential abuse, physical or verbal comes into play. When the “control freak” gets what they want, he/she is pleasant, happy, jovial even overtly loving but the slightest sense of any loosening of the rope they have over their target, the more they tighten the reins. Some individuals embrace change, others fear it. The control freak fears any change because they are not adaptable individuals and it causes great stress, confusion and uncontrollable anxiety in them. They also tend to be right dominant, living day to day in their own world for emotional safety and protection from uncontrollable swings of rage and insecurity…”reactors” rather than thinkers. Left brained dominants always deal with change better because they can calmly think, reason and project their pathway through stressful situations.

    IMO with some confidence from what I’ve read, it was not an easy decision for BP to leave this relationship. After having routine and some momentary, cyclic stability with fond memories of “happy times” even if they are far and few …all marriages or even living together…after a drastic change like a “divorce” which is final…not just a separation which is “in the perceiver’s view” temporary… can cause high stress, anxiety and oftentimes depression affecting work, productivity and simple day to day functioning. Research, dating as far back as 1967 including the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, has shown that the number one causes of stress is 1. death 2. divorce (which technically are the same aka total separation from the usual even if it was not a pleasant relationship or circumstance.)…interesting that imprisonment came in 4th LOL) Some people get accustomed to very unpleasant situations aka in an extreme example routine physical or verbal abuse and individuals stay in such relationships by choice, confusion or fear of the unknown hence the stress of unknown “change” is greater than the stress of known norm aka the expected abuse. It sounds strange but it is human nature so the tendency is not to get out of stressful relationships and hope that it will get better which it rarely does. Men do not want to be the “bad guy” and women tend to believe they can change men…all adaptive mechanisms and excuses to stay in unpleasant relationships.
    JA’s veil of deliberate lies in interviews and media manipulations of her self image and projected salvage of her pubic persona as “the victim who has control of her happy life” has reached critical mass and she is not creative enough to change the routine. Even if she and whatshisname get married, who believes anything she says anymore. Many couples marry during periodic subconsciously lying to each other and/or to him/herself but at the time he/she really does believe in the lie.
    BP today, has all the markings of a mature, centered man whose inherent youthful appearance may have passed it’s prime but shining through now is what is even more admirable and respected by any reputable man or woman of age and life experience whose understands, is empathetic towards and/or knows the difficulty rising above such occasions and circumstances. All this just makes him more attractive. Those who lack the ability to see what he has accomplished out of a lopsided marriage (per JA’s public interview given while they were married, that he was never the “love of her life”…how hurtful and embarrassing can that be to a husband…rhetorical Q.) merely reflects their own life inexperience and banal prosaic vacuous flapdoodle…all with the pretense they are “educating, informing” others LOL…these individuals are not worthy of an intelligent response because they are neither intelligent nor because of their cerebral wiring incapable of empathy towards anyone but him/herself. Their only self goal is to gain a false superior feeling by criticizing or judging because they “righteously “can”…it does not mean they are correct.
    During his marriage alone for many who read and watched the marriage unravel which is documented in her written and audio interviews, her actions filmed at various Awards Shows found on You Tube…BP, the individual, deserves credit for his patience, endurance and trying to make his marriage work against the the format of mental and verbal humiliation, her perpetual criticism of him due to her self admitted “control freak” (InStyle 2004) nature and his catering to her creepy needy massive un-talented, unworthy, narcissistic rantings….his quiet, gracious tolerance speaks to his yielding nature, inner fortitude and “staying power.” An individual stays in a relationship until the emotional and/or financial reward and rate of return is no longer worth the negative return and it varies from individual to individual’s tolerance level…and let it be clear…in relationships, men oftentimes endure verbal and mental abuse by controlling bi.t.c.hy insecure women.

    I know. The trolls keep saying Plan B belongs to her. Plan B is just a name. If MANiston is so talented and smart, why does it matter if Plan B, C or D? Also, she has to move her @ss to get more involve w/her company instead of going o spa and yoga. I’ll bet Brad was the one who did all the leg work while they were still married.

    Her fans know she is dumb. In order to make her look smart, they have to knock down Brad.

    Actually, the contract is with Fox.
    Fox Searchlight is a Fox’s division for small movies.
    The Plan B movies can go to Fox or Fox Searchlight, first.
    But sometimes, when they pass -it happened a lot of times with Paramount – it can go to other distribuidor.
    Sony was very happy when Paramount passed “Eat Pray Love”.

For more than two decades, The “World War Z” star has charmed us with his philanthropic ways, his talent, and — you know, what’s really important — his pretty face. There are his enchanting blue eyes, his sparkling smile that makes us jealous of Angelina, and then there’s the hair, which he changes just often enough to keep our long-term relationship interesting.

    How Advance Screenings Helped Form a Strategy for ’12 Years a Slave’
    —————————————————————————————–
    .
    December 17, 2013
    .
    The critical hit changed release plan after well-received screenings
    .
    Variety’s cover story this week is on Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave.” While the film has been earning raves since it’s secret premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, followed by winning the Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s also succeeded at the box office, more than doubling its $20-million budget.
    .
    But it was never expected to be an easy sell, as it delivers an unflinching view of a dark chapter in American history. Developed by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment, the film was independent co-financed by River Road Entertainment, New Regency and Britain’s Film 4. Dede Gardner, a producer at Plan B, says a big part of the strategy was finding the right distributor. And their hope was to partner again with Fox Searchlight, who had worked with Plan B on “Tree of Life.” Says Gardner, “It’s a group of people I know really well and admire and think are film lovers first. I dreamed they would be at the helm of this one. Fortunately, when they saw the film, they agreed.”
    .
    According to Brad Weston, President and CEO of New Regency, the team knew they had a special film, and advanced screenings of the film only confirmed their beliefs. “In February, Steve and a group of us screened the movie in three different cities back to back to back, three nights in a row,” says Weston. “It was something I had never done before in all the movies I’ve worked on. And we learned so much in that week that it was just, it was remarkable.”
    Elaborates Weston, “We screened it in the South for an all African-American audience. We took it to the Midwest to an urban audience and an art house audience. And then we played it on the coast for an art house audience. And we got a real sense in that three day period how the movie was. And then we did it for an all African American audience in Los Angeles as well and we got a real sense in showing the picture that the film appealed to a broad audience and it wasn’t just an art house film and it wasn’t just an African-American film.”
    .
    Following the screenings, Weston says they began to formulate their strategy, “I think before that, we had planned a late December release,” he reveals. “And once we saw the picture play during that period, we formulated a new strategy to take it to Telluride and Toronto and New York Film Festival.” He admits some of this was out of necessity, as both Pitt and Michael Fassbender had work commitments in the fall, and this gave them an opportunity to support the movie. “We just thought it was a really terrific strategy to get out early in October with the picture and the platform release that we did.”
    .
    Weston and Gardner are both understandably thrilled with the result. “It’s remarkable how people have responded to the movie,” says Weston. Agrees Gardner, “You care deeply about the film and about how it’s reaching the world. You’re not entirely control of it, the audience is on the other side of the table. You do your best up until the point you release it into the world and you sit back and hope for the best.”

    THE hype and excitement of a Hollywood blockbuster was felt in Werris Creek yesterday during the final day of shooting for Angelina Jolie’s new movie, Unbroken. Angelina Jolie with one of the extras in Werris Creek yesterday.
    .
    During the past few weeks, parts of the small town have been transformed into the southern Californian town of Torrance, where Olympic track star and fighter pilot Louie Zamperini grew up in the 1920s and 30s.The film is based on the best-selling biography which charts the amazing life of Mr Zamperini, who was shot down over the Pacific Ocean during WWII and spent two-and-a-half years as a prisoner of war.
    .
    Travellers driving through Werris Creek late last week passed through a time warp, with several shops in the main street getting a new look for the film. The local supermarket was turned into an olden day greengrocer and the Railway Hotel became a movie cinema featuring films from the ‘Wild West’. A narrow laneway was also used for the film.
    .
    The historic Werris Creek Railway Station was the final location for filming, after receiving a makeover of its own. Crowds of locals lined the streets during the filming, hoping to get a glimpse of Ms Jolie. King George’s Avenue in Tamworth was also used as a location for the film, and was shut off from traffic on Friday.Several residents got the chance to chat with the Hollywood star during her stay, including 16 year-old Tamworth student Michelle Nugent, who was an extra in the film.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor Discusses His Commitment To The Stage
    ——————————————————
    .
    Laurence Olivier Award-winning stage star and early Oscar favorite for awards front-runner 12 YEARS A SLAVE, Chiwetel Ejiofor discusses his early reticence to become a film actor and his undying passion for the theatre as part of a new interview.
    The versatile and accomplished performer states of his unusual moniker and his lack of desire to star in films early on, “I’d never really considered film. If I’d thought about film more growing up, I probably would have changed my name. I had no concept of my name in lights.”
    Ejiofor says that theatre is his true passion, relating, “It’s part of who I am. I wouldn’t be the same actor if I couldn’t do theater.”
    Furthermore, Ejiofor says, “I love the theater community and theater life, and would love to figure out the distinctive differences between Broadway and the West End.”
    Additionally, Ejiofor confirmed that he plans to proceed with a film adaptation of the stage hit A SEASON IN THE CONGO with director Joe Wright in the near future, as well.

    Brad Pitt’s 5 greatest roles
    ————————————

    Hey, want to feel old? Brad Pitt is joining the 50-and-over club this week.

    But since stealing movie lovers’ hearts in 1991’s Thelma & Louise, Pitt has had one of the most varied and interesting careers in Hollywood. He has never repeated himself (well, okay, he played the same character three times in the Ocean’s movies) and his presence in a film has usually been a seal of quality.

    There have been hits and flops, like all big stars, but in his 25-plus year career, he’s shown a deft ability to flip between the eccentric (Twelve Monkeys), dark (Killing Them Softly) and commercial (World War Z) with relative ease.

    Here, I take a look back at Pitt’s five best moments on film. He’s had many great roles, but these are my faves. Don’t like my choices? Sound off in the comments below.

    Oh, and Happy Birthday Brad. Here’s to another 50!

    Phool. Says:

    Slave’ simply a powerhouse Top 10 movies of the year
    ——————————————————————–
    In surveying the year at the movies, the topography is rich. From the dusty, dying towns of “Nebraska” to the rooftop Roman parties in “The Great Beauty” to the sleek future Los Angeles of “Her,” 2013 has been a trip. But has it been a great year? Negativity reached a fever pitch in the summer when Steven Spielberg lamented Hollywood’s risk-adverse, finance-driven blockbusterism. The grim, humorless “Man of Steel” and its careless backdrop of mass destruction was a low point: the epitome of everything bad about movies today. Yet ambitious films gathered in number as the year went on, and many began calling 2013 a historically excellent year for film, after all. Here are one critic’s top picks of the year, all of them reasons why 2013 was a good year for the big screen:
    .
    1. “12 Years a Slave”: Steve McQueen’s masterful adaptation of Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir is simply a powerhouse. McQueen, I suspect, will never make a comedy; his three movies (“Shame,” “Hunger”) reveal him a harsh storyteller, drawn down dark rabbit holes. But his lack of sentimentality gives “12 Years a Slave” its clarity: a long overdue correction to cinema’s reluctant treatment of slavery. As Northup, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s soulful eyes carry us through a nightmare odyssey of America’s past.
    .
    2. “Mud”: From the plantations of mid-19th century Louisiana, we travel up river to contemporary Arkansas in Jeff Nichols’ Twain-esque tale of boyhood on the Mississippi. With the wise-beyond-his-years Tye Sheridan as the 14-year-old Ellis, “Mud” is a full-hearted American fable.
    .
    3. “Frances Ha”: Full disclosure: I’m in love with Greta Gerwig. That bias notwithstanding, Noah Baumbach’s latest — co-written by and starring Gerwig — is a lovely ode to its title character (who has much in common with Gerwig, herself). Frances is an idiosyncratic 27-year-old finding her place in New York; where the “Ha” comes from is answered in the film’s sweet final moment.
    .
    4. “Inside Llewyn Davis”: Like Frances, Llewyn is a striving Manhattanite without an apartment or a steady job. But he’s much angrier about it. The Coen brothers’ melancholy story of a bitter, unfortunate folk singer is a wry commentary on the cruelness of fate, and melody born out of disharmony.
    .
    5. “The Hunt”: In the most haunting film of the year, the weak binds of a seemingly close-knit Danish community disintegrate when a kindergarten teacher (Mads Mikkelsen) is unjustly accused of sexually assaulting a child.
    .
    6. “The Great Beauty”: Fellini looms large in Paolo Sorrentino’s portrait of Rome in decadent decay. Sorrentino is an exquisite stylist (the opening minutes of his “Il Divo” are pure, blistering cinema), and “The Great Beauty” is manic and overstuffed. But it’s bursting with life. (Literally. It’s got a giraffe.)
    .
    7. “Gravity”: So simple you could make the case that Alfonso Cuaron’s 3-D spectacle is a bit banal. But, man, is it something to look at. The movie won’t be remembered for its thin story, but at a time when television’s rise is much discussed, “Gravity” reinvigorated the big screen experience.
    .
    8. “Blue Is the Warmest Color”: Several films this year were fascinating snapshots of lives in motion. The powerful, simply told Bill Moyers’ documentary “Two American Families” kept up with two struggling middle-class families for 20 years. And Richard Linklater has covered two decades in the lives of a Paris woman (Julie Delpy) and American writer (Ethan Hawke) in his day-in-a-life series, culminating in “Before Midnight.” But Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or-winner (also called “The Life of Adele: Chapters 1&2”) is the most memorable for its extreme closeness in portraying a teenager’s awakening to herself and the world. Adele Exarchopoulus’ performance is staggeringly open. The irony is that the infamous scenes in this flawed but arresting coming-of-age tale are easily the most artificial parts in it.
    .
    9. “This Is the End”: The jokes just come and come. Nobody had a better time making a movie this year than Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and it’s written all over their self-parodying apocalypse comedy.
    .
    10. “The Spectacular Now” and “Short Term 12”: Movies that honestly represent teenage life are seldom, but both of these films magically move from familiar plot lines to somewhere honest. The high-school comedy of “The Spectacular Now,” starring Miles Teller, smacks up against hard realities. “Short Term 12,” starring Brie Larson, tenderly depicts a foster-care facility and its young supervisors without resorting to clichés. (AP)
    Also: “Her,” “Nebraska,” “Rush,” “A Band Called Death,” “Elysium,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Captain Phillips,” “Upstream Color,” “Enough Said,” “Blue Jasmine” (AP)

    @Phool.: Hi Sis, yesterday most of the fans ignored that murderer all day. I’m sure it was just tearing the one strewn of hair out of it’s head. Phool, did you see Ticky and tacky are getting counseling because they are having problems in the relationship. She is so predictable, she reads the blogs and see that everyone is on to her game so I’m sure she called squigs to Cali to pretend everything was great. Remember seeing him trying to hide his face with his jacket/sweater while driving ms daisy. They she was telling the magazines how very, very happy she is and how squigs makes her feel beautiful in the morning? Now we all know it was spin, spin and a total lie. What an awful woman. Then she took a swipe about her 30s was her most awkward years. Now she’s admitting this relationship is a joke.

    CYBER BULLYING/TROLLING/HARASSING:

    The Number one rule for dealing with this type of behavior is:

    “Don’t respond, don’t interact, and don’t engage”. This is not as easy as it may sounds. It’s a natural response to defend yourself and the person being bullying/harassing/trolling and yourself, and to put the person right.
    However, NEVER argue with a serial bully/troll/harasser. It’s not a mature adult discussion. It’s like dealing with a child or a immature teenager; whilst the serial bully/troll/harasser maybe an adult on the outside, on the inside they are like a child who’s never grown up and probably never will.

    “SERIAL HARASSERS/TROLLS/BULLIES OFTEN HAVE DISORDERED THINKING PATTERNS AND DO NOT SHARE THE SAME THOUGHTS AND VALUES AS YOU.

    “Be alert to Provocation. It could be called the “THE BATING GAME”. A provocative comment is made and those who respond is …. Are then encouraged to engage to conflict with those who responds… The Provoker watches and waits and stirs the pot with the additional provocation.”

    “what interest me is the sense of gratification that the Provoker gain from watching others indulge in destructive interaction initiated by him- herself. In this context, gratification is a perverse form of satisfaction akin to, but distinct form of pleasure”.

    Trolls are very sick people coming here TRYING to disrupt our thread.

    I didn’t want to sully my previous post so kept this separate lol talking about the JOKE that Brad had the misfortune to come across in his life and later step upon and not ever looking back on, yes I saw your post about Ticky & Squiggy going into counseling LMAO that Rose is what you call not a shocker, that’s expected with Ticky she drives every man to Therapy and what does that say about her ?
    .
    I think she passes her insecurities on to her partners & Ex’s that’s how depressing she is, her neurosis never will be treated they will remain with her till the very end. Rose you are right Of course Ticky reads the blogs she’d admitted to it in her interview she talked about stuff that’s written about her to the T.
    .
    Huvane & She’s playing the deflecting game people called her out on her none relatshionship with Courtney hey presto Courtney’s invited to the Tree Trimming and Thanks giving, people talked about Squiggy going AWOL , she pulls his skinny ass back from NY for a photo Op, people called her out on squiggy not actually being at the party he’s called back again to chuffer her to other peoples baby showers Lol people called her out that Squiggy doesn’t want to get married and he’s left her and right on cue she’s having couples therapy hmm I thought she was HAPPY with Squiggy so why the need of Therapy ??
    .
    The hag is predictable in her Trolling the JP’s I knew the women wont ever lay low during Brads 50th she is desperate for attention so my guess is when magazines will celebrate Brads 50 years guess who is going to pop up in there wither her own trolling segment with Squiggy We are happy Malachi.

    Phool, I just love how Ticky was telling all her fans last week how happy and fortunate she was when in actuality she’s in therapy trying to make this sham relationship with squigs a thing, lol. Phool do you remember: “I feel most Beautiful when I’m with Justin Theroux in the morning, or any time of the day I’m with him.”. “My life is fantastic. Im so happy. Im just so happy.” all lies. PT got it right, whenever her mouth is open, shes lying. Then now she’s admitted that they were separated for too long and now they are in therapy. Lady, remember when she called Brad, Brad Pitt? saying I love you man, thanks for holding me together man. Now it’s. JT turn to hold her together but he’s not falling for her BS. Tacky ran back to New York, lol. Phool, I’m wondering if Angie is on a break for the holidays? With six kids and the family to shop for she’s going to need a few days off, and we know Angie is very organized. Someone on the last page was saying the entire Pitt’s will be together.

    .
    In regards to Ticky like Passing through says and we repeat “when lips are moving ” Lol Ticky is a joke to her self honestly one week she’s happy with Squiggys he’s the first thing she sees in the morning afternoon and night that makes her happy, and then all of a sudden she’s dragging him in to a therapy sessions, now that doesn’t sound like a very happy couple more like a couple on the verge of breaking up and trying to make amends to carry on.
    .
    So I guess life isn’t a box of chocolate after all for Ticky and life’s not so fantastic as Ticky made out to Parade Magazine, why does she LIE to her Fans in her interviews such shameless behaviour, she yanks her fans hopes and then drags them down in the gutter wioth her . I just want her to solve whatever issues she has with Squiggy and Marry him and give birth to his and hers biological babies I want to see biologically inherited blue eyed Greek gene babies.

    I guess Lamar has grown a pair over night if that what he’s done, a bit too late in my eyes now that she’s latched on to another millionaire player or in this case sucker. Seriously I don’t know how these Kardashan Trash attract men in the first place especially in their blatant famehoing I guess these boyfriends want to get extra famous by bad association.

    Oh please tell me you’re joking! don’t tell me little North West is already getting nips & tucks via a beautician Unibrow or no Brow leave the kids alone Kim, I guess Kanye doesn’t care what Kim does to her as he’s so under Kim’s thumb. Haven’t heard any recent rant from him is he feeling alright? Lol. Rose if North has inherited her mother “Old Nose” I guess by her First birthday she’ll have a nose job in form of a birthday present curtsey from her delusional parents.

    @Phool.: You know, I’m like you that way, but because Shia was working with Brad I took a look see what was going on with him. I remember reading about him getting drunk in bars and getting beat up more than once while in London doing Fury. It would appears he’s an alcoholic , jmo.

    Ticky lies to her fans because she knows they are gullible. The woman has been promising them shell have a baby for more than 10 years and they still believe her. Whenever she gets gas from eating all that lettuce and her belly swells up they get all happy for the baby is coming, lol. I have a feeling squigs not a push over. Did you see that photo of him last week? The man was hiding his face and looked quite pissed that she called the paps to get the photo op so she can pushed back on the break up rumor.

    Can’t wait to see how this turns out after Oscar season. I’m saying SPLIT.

    Brad Pitt hits 50! ‘Blissfully naive’ and happier than ever
    —————————————————————————-

    .
    Movie star. Father of six. Humanitarian. Producer. Wine maker. Furniture designer. Home builder. Motorcycle collector. Chanel No. 5 pitchman. Yodeler. On Brad Pitt’s 50th birthday, it’s safe to say that the male half of Brangelina has made the most out of his five decades on earth. To think the three-time Oscar-nominated actor never finished college — he just needed to write one more paper — and used to have a general problem with follow-through, as he told Esquire this summer. Now, he’s engaged to Angelina Jolie, his partner of seven years and mother of his six children. He’s had a string of successful movies, and the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation continues to assist with crises around the world. In October, Pitt told TODAY that he was “curious” about turning this AARP-eligible corner and that “so far I haven’t minded it a bit.”Maybe that’s because, as he told Esquire, he hasn’t “known life to be any happier.”
    .
    Ever since his breakthrough in “Thelma & Louise” nothing has been able to stop this actor’s meteoric rise to stardom.A movie-goer all of his life, Pitt has said in interviews that he always sensed growing up in the Midwest that the world was much bigger than his upbringing indicated. When he quit college two weeks before graduation to drive to California and find himself, he said he “just knew.” “I just knew that there were a lot of points of view out there,” he told Esquire. “I wanted to see them. I wanted to hear them. I always liked film as a teaching tool — a way of getting exposed to ideas that had never been presented to me. It just wasn’t on the list of career options where I grew up. Then it occurred to me, literally two weeks before graduation: If the opportunity isn’t here, I’ll go to it.”
    .
    And that he did. Without ever having performed as a child, Pitt took acting classes in Los Angeles in the late ’80s and booked supporting roles in movies and television until he landed the part as Geena Davis’ petty criminal lover in “Thelma & Louise” and became a national sex symbol. From there, Pitt began to prove himself with meatier roles in films like “A River Runs Through It” and “Legends of the Fall,” for which he received his first of five Golden Globe nominations, and “Seven.” In 1996 he won the Globe for his work on “Twelve Monkeys,” which also earned him his first Oscar nomination.
    .
    Pitt’s portrayal of a boxer in “Fight Club” earned him critical acclaim and opened bigger doors that led to roles in “Troy,” “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” (where he met Jolie), “Babel,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Inglourious ********,” and “Moneyball,” among others.His friend and “Ocean’s Eleven” co-star George Clooney recently called him the “biggest movie star in the world” and said he admires how Pitt handles the celebrity aspects of his success. “It’s not easy for him,” Clooney said. “But he tries to be the most honest version of Brad Pitt that he can be. And he also remains unavailable. He’s still a giant movie star because you can’t get to him. That doesn’t mean that I don’t think of him as incredibly talented and smart and all those things. But you also can’t get to him.”
    .
    Pitt’s secret, whether he’s being asked about his looks, his relationship to Jolie or why he partook in those hilarious Chanel No. 5 commercials, is to stick to the plan: “I stay blissfully naive to the chatter.” It’s probably why his fans can take him seriously when he’s starring and producing in the Oscar-nominated “Moneyball” and the Golden Globe-nominated “12 Years a Slave” or crack up with him when he stands on a rooftop and yodels with Jimmy Fallon just because. Happy Birthday, Brad.

    Brad Pitt at 50: Notes on a Career No One Ever Guessed He’d Have
    ——————————————————————————-
    .

    BY Tom Carson On December 18, 2013 at 7:00 AM
    .

    Brad Pitt is turning 50 today, and what’s so remarkable about that? Not much, except that few people who can remember the piece of indolent eye taffy Pitt was 20-plus years ago would have bet on him to hold our interest for two decades and counting. Let alone that he’d mature into one hell of an actor after spending his early career mostly looking bemused that he had one. Or that he’d turn out to have brains—so far as I can tell, the actor and the producer in him function in notably astute tandem—along with an inquisitive enough temperament to help some mighty interesting movies get bankrolled by agreeing to star in them.
    .
    True, even early on, Pitt was never completely feckless. He had an instinctive sense of the camera and knew how to use his eyes and smile to mess with almost any scene’s tempo by introducing an entertaining element of languor. But in the roles that first made people notice him—as the amusingly role-reversed male sex object in Ridley Scott’s feminocentric Thelma And Louise, as the beneficiary of director Robert Redford’s “I was once young like you” narcissism in A River Runs Through It—he could also coast on his looks and effortless magnetism, and coast he often did. A lot of the time, his performances just looked awfully lazy, something also true of his pal George Clooney in those days.
    .
    Maybe they ended up egging each other on, who knows? It’s still striking that in midlife they’ve become the canny, thoughtful performers they are. On top of that, they came up in a movie era that valued eternal boyishness over rough-hewn manliness—the boyishness their near contemporary Tom Cruise, say, won’t shake off until he’s 70, if then. Pitt and Clooney, on the other hand, are now our time’s two most satisfying embodiments of old-school screen masculinity, meaning the kind that looks deeply marked by experience, reflectiveness and all sorts of stuff the dudes they play have decided to keep to themselves.
    .
    The first sign that Pitt had more on the ball than Tom Cruise was probably when he used his star clout to lobby for retaining the grisly ending of David Fincher’s Seven in the face of studio heebie-jeebies. As it happens, I’m no fan of Seven, which—like Silence of The Lambs, whose success it obviously meant to replicate—struck me then and does now as a hunk of puerile exploitativeness gussied up to look like it’s got class, depth and a bunch of other qualities it doesn’t. Even so, Pitt was right: Any other ending but the one he and Fincher wanted would have been a cop-out. And what’s more, audiences would have known it.
    .
    Nonetheless, when Pitt was in his thirties and even early forties, there was still something unformed about him. His calfy-eyed handsomeness got in the way even when he tried to do interesting things, from Fight Club—a work of definite non-genius in my book, but a tricky part for him anyway—to Interview With The Vampire, one of those movies in which just about everyone seems miscast. (Big exception, or rather pint-sized one: then 12-year-old Kirsten Dunst.) A generation earlier, his fellow “More than just a pretty face, but how much more?” marquee name Warren Beatty had faced a similar problem as he got older—Heaven Can Wait was his equivalent of Meet Joe Black—but then again, Beatty had produced and starred in Bonnie And Clyde at the age of 29. People had to take him seriously after that, not an obligation anybody felt when it came to Brad Pitt’s career. And becoming half of Brangelina, despite guaranteeing his and their celebrity until the Third World runs out of kids for her to adopt, didn’t exactly add credibility to the mix.
    .
    As entertaining as the Ocean’s 11 franchise was—the first and third installments, anyhow, though not the crapaholic middle panel—it also let Pitt and Clooney slide back into their old lazybones ways, not without an undertone of smugness that didn’t sit well. But a very different sort of ensemble project—2006′s Babel—marked a turning point for Pitt. Not only was he completely convincing as a distraught American tourist trying to keep his wife (Cate Blanchett) from dying in North Africa, but that eternally youthful face of his had turned seasoned and evocative. Then 43, he was a grown-up at last—and about time, too.
    .
    Since then, he’s never been predictable. In The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Pitt was unexpectedly authoritative as a tuckered-out, burdened Western outlaw trying to create a middle-class life for himself at the unwitting end of his days. He backslid badly with Fincher’s inane The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, whose fantasy of reversing the aging process was an ultra-Hollywoodish notion of something everybody could identify with (we didn’t). But then came Inglourious ********, with Pitt’s jocularly brutal Lt. Aldo Raine as the ideal expression of Quentin Tarantino’s mania for turning cartoon figures hyperbolic and hilarious at once. Best of all was his towering performance as a 1950s husband and father—maybe the ultimate screen portrait of a midcentury dad—in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, and it says a lot for Pitt’s maturity as an actor that he thrives on playing family men. Most male stars in his league avoid domesticity like the plague: They’d rather play loners any old day. But that’s an awfully callow notion of meaningful truth-telling.
    .
    Pitt, by contrast, now excels at the ordinary—men defined by their jobs and attachments, not their inner Travis Bickle. The beauty of his performance as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane in Moneyball was that everything from his body language to his speech rhythms conveyed an understanding of how the Billy Beanes of this world don’t see themselves as glamorous or even unusual; being good at something they love is all the validation they need. Pitt even humanized World War Z by turning it into a story about a guy tussling with the conflicting demands of work and family—and, in his role as producer, presumably cast the decisive vote in scrapping the movie’s climactic zombie battle in favor of a tense, protracted sequence that focused on the hero’s determination to find a magic bullet. That brainy stroke alone put World War Z head and shoulders above most of last summer’s demolition-derby blockbusters.
    .
    One reason it was an impressive call was that Pitt plainly knew it was about time he delivered a big moneymaker to shore up his A-list status. Something else Clooney and he have in common is that their star wattage is out of proportion to how most of their movies perform at the box office, and he can’t do The Tree of Life every time if he wants to keep nabbing magazine covers. But so far, Pitt’s been doing an uncommonly shrewd job of staying in the limelight while satisfying his creative ambitions, and watching how he sustains that over the next decade or so isn’t going to be boring. No one would have guessed that midlife would be his prime, but it is. So, as he hits the half-century mark, a chorus of “And many more” wouldn’t be at all out of place.

    AARP Celebrates Brad Pitt’s 50th Birthday
    ——————————————-
    .
    By K.C. Blumm12/18/2013 at 07:00 AM EST
    .
    He might need a fire extinguisher to put out all 50 candles on his birthday cake, but Brad Pitt, who celebrates the milestone on Wednesday, has something else remember this birthday by – he’s now eligible to join AARP. The organization, originally founded for retired people, is honoring PEOPLE’s twice-named Sexiest Man Alive (1995 and 2000) with a special edition birthday cover of AARP The Magazine.
    .
    “Acclaimed Actor, Producer, Humanitarian, and Family Man, Mr. Pitt Joins the Club” reads a line on the mock cover.

    In an interview with PEOPLE last December, the father of six talked about turning the big 5-0 and being conscious of getting older. “I want to make sure I’m doing things of value – that mean something to me,” he said. “Make sure I’m doing things I’ve always wanted to try. And make sure I’m not doing things I don’t want to do. Because I’m very conscious of time; I know it’s limited.” One person he won’t be asking for advice – his pal George Clooney, who is 52. “He’s too old. We live different lives,” Pitt laughed. “What can he tell me? Other than how to protect my liver!”

    Katy Brent pays tribute to the ultimate hunk and wonders if anyone has the same staying power Happy Birthday Brad
    .
    Before Harry Styles was even a cheeky twinkle in his mum’s eye, womankind was lusting over Brad Pitt. It’s hard to believe that it was over 22 years ago that he first started getting females flustered, by stripping off and rocking very little but a cowboy hat in Thelma and Louise. Grown women turned into hormonal teenagers. Brad became the most talked about (and lusted over) man since the diet coke guy.
    .
    Little did the dizzy-knickered women of 1991 realise that Brad Pitt was going to become something of a phenomenon. The epitome of male attractiveness. The benchmark of male beauty. The pinnacle of masculinity, Er, you get the gist.
    .
    And he wasn’t just a pretty face (and super-hot body. Go on, have a Google of J.D. and remind yourself of exactly how yummy he was), his following roles showed that he was actually a ruddy good actor as well.
    .
    A River Runs Through It came a year later and Brad gave the standout performance. As well as looking damn fit throughout.
    Then came Interview with a Vampire (dodgy long hair), Seven (brooding and braces), 12 Monkeys (lazy eye) and Fight Club (swoon). He was pretty much the ultimate man throughout the 90s. He won every Sexiest Man Alive accolade for pretty much a whole decade. And into the noughties. That’s how hot he was.
    .
    Brad has only got better with age and, even at the ripe old age of 50, (that’s old enough to be my dad, btw) I still would. There are not many men that have that sort of longevity when it comes to being a sex symbol. He hasn’t embarrassed himself by trying to desperately hang onto his youth. He’s never been papped rocking ill-advised fashions favoured by guys thirty years younger than him. He’s gracefully got older and grey hair has never looked sexier. Put simply, he hasn’t lost ‘it’ with age. Still fit at fifty
    .
    Robbie Williams was my ultimate heart-throb when I was a teenager. I LOVED him. I spent my pocket money on all his dodgy early solo singles. I set my alarm for stupid o’clock on school days so I could watch him manically present The Big Breakfast. I forced myself to like Oasis because HE was mates with them. I had a DOLL for god’s sake. I basically got into journalism in the hope that one day I would meet him and marry him. Yep. I just admitted all of that.He’s not even old enough to be my dad, yet he reminds me of him these days. (Sorry, Rob. Apologetic face) If my one teenage wish had come true and I HAD become Mrs. Williams, we’d have been heading for the divorce courts the minute he dad-danced on X Factor to Candy. Cringe. I abruptly called time on the on/off relationship we had been having in my head for the last ten years at that point.
    .
    During Brad’s reign of hotness, there have been many contenders to his crown. Out of all of them David Beckham is probably the only one who looks like he could even come close. But at 38, he’s got to prove himself for a few more years yet. Bradley Cooper has got potential. Ryan Gosling reminds me of Rodney from Only Fools and Horses. I can’t see him getting better with age.And what about the new crop of whippersnappers? Do the Zayn Maliks and Justin Biebers of the world have what it takes to stick around as long as Brad has? Or will they be bloated and bald when they hit the big 5-0? Only time will tell I guess, but they really have got some big shoes to fill.
    .
    Happy Birthday, Brad. You really are fit at fifty.

    Stars like Alicia Silverstone and Brad Pitt have not only given up eating meat, but have also abstained themselves from animal and dairy products like milk and curd.

    - Beyonce and Jay Z: The couple recently announced they are going vegan for 22 days ahead of Christmas.

    - Brad Pitt: Although the actor’s better half Angelina Jolie was vegan for a long time, she had to give up the lifestyle because she wasn’t getting the nutrients she required. Pitt, on the other hand, seems to be doing just fine.

    - Russell Brand: Another vegetarian convert, the British comedian and actor announced his move to veganism via his Twitter page, saying: “I’m now vegan, goodbye eggs.”

    - Alicia Silverstone: The “Clueless” actress even started her own website dedicated to the cause – thekindlife.com.

    - Mike Tyson: On why he went vegan, the former boxer said: “I just threw up the white flag. Too many prison cells, jail, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired.”

    Sustainable Design Abounds in SoCal
    —————————————————

    LA’s luxury home builders and architects are going green! And Hollywood influencers have done much to get the word out on ecosmart construction. Actor and producer Brad Pitt uses his star power to galvanize the Make It Right Foundation: The organization partners with top architects like Frank Gehry to construct sustainable homes at a fair cost for communities in need. (The Foundation also maintains an extensive database of its forward-thinking construction practices and makes that information available to all on its website.) Other well-known advocates for building green include Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Ed Begley Jr., who is in the process of constructing a LEED-certified Platinum green family home in Studio City (evox.com is chronicling his efforts via an original web series).
    .
    “You can do a larger home and make it eco-friendly,” insists architect Richard Landry of Landry Design Group. For each new residential project, Landry and his firm present clients with the latest options in sustainable design, from nontoxic paints to power-source alternatives to gray water systems, which recycle bath and laundry water for irrigation. Landry finds his clients are becoming more concerned about the environmental impact of custom-built homes. “Although the houses are large, they also have healthy budgets, so we can go the extra mile,” he says.
    .
    One such commission pushed the green building envelope: New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen’s 14,000-square-foot Pacific Palisades home, reminiscent of a stone-clad French château. Landry and his team incorporated state-of-the-art, energy-efficient systems throughout. Insulated walls, radiant heating, solar power, and a cutting-edge fuel cell system by ClearEdge Power make it so that on some days, the house actually generates power back to the electrical grid. While such systems typically cost more upfront, within seven years, due to low or minimal utility bills, those costs are recouped.

    It’s a breeze! Architect Dan Brunn’s 5,700-square-foot Flip Flop House in Venice features doors that pivot open and closed to naturally cool the house as well as reveal/conceal artwork and beach views.
    “Aesthetically there was no compromise,” says Landry of the “eco-mansion.” Reclaimed-wood beams, vintage fireplaces, and recycled stone added patina and character “that cannot be replicated or reproduced,” says the architect. Covered loggias extend from the house, creating shade (which cools it) and allowing for cross-ventilation that minimizes the need for air conditioning, a real energy drain.
    .
    Architect Dan Brunn’s 5,700-square-foot Flip Flop House in Venice pushes the boundaries between inside and out and forgoes air conditioning completely. An extensive system of overhangs shades the building, oversized 9-by-7-foot window/doors pivot open, and ocean breezes passing over water elements further cool the house. “Sustainable design has to be done,” believes the architect. And, “it goes hand in hand with modern architecture and materials,” says Brunn, who diligently sourced materials, such as the recyclable glass and aluminum found in the kitchen, locally. He finds that clients seek out eco-friendly products and notes the latest trend: a dedicated outlet to power electric vehicles.
    .
    Although individual homeowners lead the way in adopting new technologies and energy efficient appliances, some developers also consider the natural environment. At the far end of Malibu, MariSol is an 80-acre, 17-lot ocean-front subdivision that makes the most of its enviable location. Represented by Rodrigo Iglesias of Hilton & Hyland, lots were sited and graded to maximize privacy and views (utility cables are underground), and open space was preserved and replanted with drought-tolerant, native plants that serve as habitat for indigenous species like the Monarch butterfly. “People are more concerned with the environment and that is expressed in what gets built,” says Igelsias. Pricing for lots begins at $6 million; MariSol’s showcase house closed earlier this year at $16 million (among its many green attributes is a driveway made of recycled concrete pavers).

    .
    When it comes to teardowns and major renovations, LA homeowners have the option of a green solution that not only diverts demolition by-products from area landfills but also recycles materials and provides a tax benefit. The nonprofit Deconstruction & ReUse Network’s crews hand-wreck and deconstruct houses, rather than just bulldozing them. “The costs of throwing things away has not been fully calculated,” says Lorenz Schilling, president of the organization. “Don’t let the first phase of a project be an afterthought. Give a thought to what’s existing,” he urges.
    .
    To that end, ReUse Network offers a turnkey solution: After an appraisal, the group methodically deconstructs a home, salvaging lumber (such as old-growth wood planks found in a 12,000-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion), windows, lighting fixtures, and vintage items. Raw materials are donated to other nonprofits such as Habitat for Humanity; some materials are resold. Even Jacuzzis can be recycled. Although more expensive than standard demolition, homeowners reap a significant tax break and take part in the simplest and most green technology of all: reuse. The moral: Reuse it or lose it!

    @Rose, top of the morning to you.
    Yesterday it was tough getting home, they said the snow was going to stop at mid-day, but where I work it snowed all day.
    Coming down a hill, I started to slide, out pop a damn deer, was only doing like 5 mph, so I was able to stop, If you see one deer, you know more are coming, the next one just stopped in the middle of the road.
    A normal fourth-five minutes trip took an extra two hours, looking forward to this weekend weather. Have a great day.

    Brad Pitt turns 50: 10 of the actor’s defining career moments
    ————————————————————————-
    .
    Wednesday, Dec 18 2013, 13:00 GMT
    .
    2013 has been something of a vintage year for Brad Pitt – his troubled zombie thriller World War Z became a smash hit against all odds, and he co-produced Steve McQueen’s critically acclaimed Oscar frontrunner 12 Years a Slave.

    As the actor celebrates his 50th birthday, Digital Spy takes a look back over 11 key moments from his on-screen career.

    .

    1. This Pringles advert from 1989
    ————————————————-

    Because… wow. Pitt had a few early roles on the small screen – most notably in 21 Jump Street, Dallas and short-lived Fox high school drama Glory Days – but we feel ‘Once You Pop’, directed by Lawrence Bridges, really sums up the first era of his career. That era being “the eighties”.
    .
    2. Thelma & Louise (1991)
    ———————————-

    This year’s The Counsellor reunited Pitt with Ridley Scott, the director who gave him his first break on the big screen in 1991′s iconic womance. After Billy Baldwin dropped out of playing smooth-talking criminal JD, the previously rejected Pitt got his star-making moment back. “That scene, right there, is the beginning of Brad Pitt. Bingo!” Scott has said, referring to the inimitable moment where Pitt’s magnificently shirtless JD ‘holds up’ an imaginary bank with Thelma’s hairdryer. She watches in besotted awe. As do we.
    .
    3. Interview with the Vampire (1994)
    ————————————————–

    Remember all the fuss surrounding Batfleck and Christian Grey earlier this year? The casting of Neil Jordan’s adaptation of Anne Rice’s beloved vampire saga inspired a similar level of vitriol among fans, not to mention Rice herself. Tom Cruise’s Lestat ended up beloved by many, but Pitt’s take on brooding vamp Louis was less well received, and Pitt is on record as disliking the character’s passive, depressive nature. “There was just nothing to do — you just sit and watch,” he complained. The role is significant not least because it was the last time he ever played an established franchise character.
    .

    4. Se7en (1995) / Fight Club (1999)
    —————————————————–

    While “what’s in the bahhhhhx?” has become something of a comedic cultural touchstone, the role of Se7en’s unknowingly doomed young cop David Mills was a turning point in Pitt’s career. The performance isn’t a standout (although his chemistry with co-star Morgan Freeman is striking), but his ongoing relationship with director David Fincher would lead directly to Tyler Durden a few years later. And as far as career-defining characters go, Durden is tough to beat, and impossible to sum up in any words better than his own: “All the ways you wish you could be, that’s me. I look like you wanna look, I f**k like you wanna f**k, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not.”
    .

    5. Twelve Monkeys (1995)
    ——————————————

    In the same year as Se7en, Pitt took on a very different kind of role in Terry Gilliam’s nightmarish future sci-fi. When Bruce Willis’s convict Cole is sent back in time and committed to a mental institution, one of his most memorable fellow inmates is Pitt’s Jeffrey Goines, a manic, fast-talking troublemaker whose delusions of grandeur inspire some of the film’s most quotable musings on reality, technology and the meaning of authority.
    .

    6. Founding Plan B Entertainment (2002)
    ———————————————-

    Admittedly, the double-whammy of Troy and Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory didn’t make for the most auspicious of beginnings for Pitt’s production company. But over the past decade Pitt has developed into a major behind-the-scenes player, with the company’s slate combining blockbusters like Kick-Ass with awards season heavyweights like Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave.
    .
    7. Mr and Mrs Smith (2005)
    —————————————–

    Nobody’s going to make the argument that Doug Liman’s action-comedy, which centers on a bored married couple who both happen to be undercover assassins, is a creative high point in Pitt’s career. But it was on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith that he met Angelina Jolie. We’re not going to get into the thorny details of exactly when the line between on and off-screen romance became blurred, but what’s undeniable (besides the electric chemistry between the pair) is just how significant the impact of ‘Brangelina’ would be for both Pitt and Jolie’s careers going forward.
    .
    8. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
    ——————————————————————–

    After Troy and Mr and Mrs Smith, Pitt’s film choices took an understandable swerve. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Babel was technically the first flourish of the credible arthouse Brad Pitt we know and love today, but it was Andrew Dominik’s lyrical, haunting revisionist take on the Jesse James myth that forced most critics to sit up and take notice. Playing the first of the film’s two title roles, Pitt is enigmatic and charming and terrifying, creating a potent dynamic with Casey Affleck’s besotted fan-turned-killer in a performance that gestured at more complex work to come.
    .

    9. Moneyball (2011)
    ——————————

    Pitt earned his third Oscar nomination for his sharp, faintly melancholic performance as baseball manager Billy Beane, whose unconventional approach to player acquisition ended up redeeming a down-and-out team. Despite being preceded by a string of very respectable titles from directors including the Coen brothers, Quentin Tarantino and Terence Malick, the role of Beane felt like a mini-comeback for Pitt, combining his rarified brand of movie star charisma with something slightly older and sadder and more self-aware.
    .

    10. World War Z (2013)
    ———————————-

    When extensive reshoots are ordered on a film that has already finished principal photography, and an entirely new screenwriter is brought in to rework the third act from the ground up, your expectations for the finished product tend to go through the floor. Last-minute fumbling does not inspire confidence in Hollywood. Despite the reported rift between director Marc Forster and producer-star Pitt, zombie apocalypse thriller World War Z became a bona fide hit against all odds, and currently stands as Pitt’s most commercially successful film to date. The turnaround demonstrated both Pitt’s continued bankability as a leading man and his shrewd instincts as a producer.
    Happy birthday, Brad Pitt!

    Charmaine Says:

    I think Angie is in London. I don’t think she would let Brad’s 50th go by without being with him. I saw some pics of her filming in the joliepitt forum, but those were probably taken on Monday, as there is no date to them.

    Even if she is still in Australia, she probably has something sexy planned for when Brad joins her.

    I think Brad just did his thing, came shot his scenes and went back to his hotel and didn’t get caught up in Shia’s dramas. Didn’t I forgot his name Kim Basingers EX have problems with Shia in a play? A couple of months ago due to bad behavior?
    I think he’s a temperamental young man and might have some anger issues. I think he needs to take some time out for a year or so regroup and come back in the acting game because he looks intend on destructing one way or another.
    .
    Rose I guess Ticky is used to lying since birth this women’s story changes every day one day she’s throwing a pity party next she proclaims she doesn’t need a man then she follows that up with she cant live with out Squiggy due to the fact he makes her feel beautiful & happy. No rose the Split of Ticky & Squiggy isn’t coming YET till the Cabo Ass& Cooch shows not done then if God forbid she’s invited to present at the Oscars then she needs a plus 1 to show off to Brad because she & her fans still think 10 years on he’s pining for the hag AS IF.

    @Susan: Hi Susan, thank god you made it home safely. I know what you’re talking about. I can’t tell you how many nights I prayed all the way going home at midnight slipping and sliding all the way with my knees shaking because it’s so dangerous. Once on the SSP all the cars were piling up at a certain exit. No one could control their car, what an scary night, OMG. Then another night I’m in the middle lane, I believe, and a taxi slammed right into the my back of my car. We were both ok so we went on our slow way praying all the way home . Did you hear about the 35 car pile up on the LIE yesterday and another big pile up in Bklyn. because of the ice? Susan, now I call in with some excuse.
    There are staff willing to stay over than to drive on in this weather. We have an entire ward set aside for staff for emergency relating to the weather. Susan, be safe if you’re going out today.

    Good Morning Susan
    Don’t worry I wont be too hard on Kim but cant promise lol, but honestly IF she’s already using a brow pencil that only would encourage her young daughter to get used to the idea of grooming from very young age look at Suri and her high heals & designer frocks when she was barely 1 or two. I’m not saying they shouldn’t do it what I’m saying is there is a whole life ahead of them to become an adult let the chilled be a CHILD for gods sake.
    .
    Susan wasn’t that Matt guy seeing Rihanna a couple of months ago? Oh well good luck to Khloe she seems to know how to pick em lol. Don’t even go there in regards to Kris’s so called parenting she is the modern day Heidi Fliss in my opinion she will pimp out her daughters to any one with a million dollar beating pulse.

    @Phool.: How are they going to get attention, if you don’t put Brad in the picture.
    Going back more than twenty-five years, that is sad.
    Did you notice, how many of these articles are giving Brad credit for all that he has accomplished in the last nine years, the Ticky years are a blur.
    And those people that were calling him dumb, where are they now?

    Honestly why not talk about his back log of movies his philanthropy his family instead of drudging back EX girlfriends that’s he’s dumped just annoys me to hell.

    In regards to Did you notice, how many of these articles are giving Brad credit for all that he has accomplished in the last nine years, the Ticky years are a blur” .Susan that’s what I’m saying there is so mush to Brad than who he slept & dumped . Susan ironically if you look back at his back catalogue of EX’s he’s the one came out smelling of roses carer wise family wise and popularity wise.
    .
    The answer to your question in regards to his Ex.’s where are they Now” well my dear sister the EX hag army from 30 to 10 years past Whose carers have whittled away to playing 2nd fiddle to dogs and stripping, who are still are shilling out millions of their money to their PR to keep them relevant and desperate to get their names in print stalking Brad that’s where they are.

    Oh loony troll you have no idea how much you amuse us. Nevermind the fact that you’ve derailed the thread once again with your rant about the ex wife but do tell, how does one have sex when your “partner” lives 10 thousand miles away? Virtually?? Whatsapp pics? Way to get ahead of yourself. So many assumptions… you do realize you are not a fly on their wall, do you? ROTFLMAO… did you forget both of your vvhory idols are physically incapable of staying faithful to one another? They both have a history of promiscuity and adultery, after all, so good luck with both keeping it in their pants! Thank goodness for fckk buddies! :)
