Personal Quotes
[US Weekly, 9/18/00] Being married means I can break wind and eat ice cream in bed.

I'm gonna design my own fleet of trailers. No! I'm gonna record an album like Jennifer Lopez. It'll be an acoustic version of KC & The Sunshine Band. Then maybe I'll design a line of clothes like [Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs] but all in synthetic fur.

I'd like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right.

[Viasat magazine, 5/01] Fame is a bitch, man.

[on what keeps him humble] You know, I telephoned my grandparents the other day, and my grandfather said to me, "We saw your movie." "Which one?" I said, and he shouted, "Betty, what was the name of that movie I didn't like?" I thought that was just classic. I mean, if that doesn't keep your feet on the ground, what would?

I'm one of those people you hate because of genetics. It's the truth.

Success is a beast. And it actually puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. You get away with more instead of looking within.

[Time magazine, 10/13/97] You shouldn't speak until you know what you're talking about. That's why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I'm a f---ing actor! They hand me a script. I act. I'm here for entertainment. Basically, when you whittle everything away, I'm a grown man who puts on makeup.

When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It's just a first impression. Then there's someone who doesn't catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren't what you would call beautiful sex symbols. I'll tell you who my favorite actress is, Dianne Wiest, and you wouldn't call her a sex symbol. Dianne Wiest is, to me, the most beautiful woman on the screen.

[when asked by Conan O'Brien how he got into character as stoner JD in True Romance (1993)] I'm a method actor.

Brad’s Back From Berlin[/b]
Wed, 11 July 2007 at 1:38 pm



Brad Pitt arrives back at his home-away-from-home in Prague, Czech Republic after a quick trip to Berlin, where he had dinner with the dudes at Bandol Sur Mer restaurant.

After Brad’s bodyguard noticed the paparazzi, he ran across the street and shielded Brad from photographers.

It would seem Angelina and the kids didn’t make it out for this brief trip out to Germany but they’re back together now!

Other pictures include Brad back in LA late last year…

Brad Pitt Has a Bloody Nose
Sun, 23 September 2007



Oh no! Did Brad Pitt get into a motorcycle accident like pal George Clooney?

Thank heavens no!

Brad was spotted with a (fake) bloody nose Sunday on the set of his new movie Burn After Reading, which is being filmed in New York City. He was seen wearing a bike helmet and screaming expletives.

In the film, John Malkovich play Ozzie Coxs, a former CIA agent whose soon-to-be ex-wife (Frances McDormand) steals a disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaves it at the gym where it is found by a trainer (Pitt) who believes he can use the info to blackmail Cox. George Clooney will play an assassin hired by the CIA to take care of the situation. Tilda Swinton also costars.

Burn After Reading opens in 2008.

Brad Pitt Softbank Commercials
Mon, 24 September 2007



Here are two of Brad Pitt’s commercials for Japanese cell phone company Softbank, as directed by Wong Kar Wai (My Blueberry Nights). These scenes were shot back in late June while the Jolie-Pitts were in Prague, Czech Republic.

Pictures from the first commercial (gray suit) can be seen here and from the second commercial (black suit) here. A cover of The Kinks‘ “You Really Got Me” is played in the second one, FYI.

The third commercial (white suit) has yet to surface but pictures can be seen here. Bummer because that one looked the most exciting! Let’s hope that one is released soon

Brad Pitt’s Stripper Past



Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie’s arm candy Brad Pitt used to get butt naked and do stripteases in college.

The Fight Club stud’s days at the University of Missouri included some pretty crazy times, according to one of Pitt’s fraternity brothers. Thomas Whelihan told press that every time a birthday came around, Brad performed with his friends in “The Dancing Bares.”

When a girl from one of our sister sororities turned 21, the Bares - there were seven of them - would put her in a chair and come out butt-naked with pillowcases on their heads and do a choreographed dance for her. The girls would be laughing so hard. It was great!”

And the story doesn’t stop there. “Once, during Spring Fling, Brad tanned the letters of the sorority house we were grouped with on his butt. He mooned the whole crowd. Everyone thought it was hysterical.”

Sounds like fun to me!
