Actually, I might have made a mistake in that headline up there. See, I think that the relationship between Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill might not be so much a BFF thing as a bromance thing. It’s a slight difference, I know, but I think it’s an important one. And I think that these two have crossed that line and are now in the midst of a full-fledged, super adorable, “dude, have we hugged for too long?” bromance.
The relationship began, presumably, when Brad and Jonah teamed up to make Moneyball. From how Jonah tells it, it seems like things got real serious real quick when Brad did Jonah a major favor by letting him sleep over at his house for four months:
“Brad [Pitt] is the coolest guy,” Hill, 28, told Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. “It sucks because he’s so handsome… You don’t wanna like him so much!”
“I was shooting [21 Jump Street] in New Orleans, and he let me live in his house,” the actor said. “He said, ‘Go live there!’ I said, ‘I’m there for three-and-a-half, four months,” and he said, ‘That’s cool. Live at my house.’ Like, he’s the nicest guy.”
“Was Angie home?” Stewart, 49, asked jokingly. “Is he that cool?”
“He isn’t that cool,” Hill laughed.
Brad let Jonah stay because on certain nights, nights when life with Angelina got too hard, when the kids got too loud, he could get away down in Louisiana. He could make up some excuse – some reshoot needed to be done, some sort of press thing – just to get away to be with someone who he could talk to. Someone he could … oh no, am I confusing bromances with romances again? Oh, Emily! You wacky girl!
But really, these two could actually be new best friends, judging by the story above and also this story about how Brad showed up and Jonah’s birthday party. You guys!
Jonah Hill’s 28th birthday party at La Descarga in Hollywood was quite the star-studded affair. A source tells Us Weekly that Hill’s Moneyball costar Brad Pitt came out for the bash, as did Angelina Jolie and Zooey Deschanel.
Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, stayed for about two hours at the fete. “They danced a little bit,” adds the source. “Angelina had a glass of wine in her hand.”
The couple — who let Hill live in their New Orleans home for four months while he was filming 21 Jump Street — left around 12:30 a.m., right before the dance party got crazy.
So you see, maybe, just maybe when Brad retires in three years or so, he can take some time to look up his old friend, Jonah Hill. He could take some time to remember what it’s like to form a strong, solid friendship with another man. He could remember what it’s like to feel the rough and rugged but somehow still tender touch of a big ol’ pair of man hands caressing his face with love and adoration. He could find serenity in his embrace, find … GODDAMNIT I’M DOING IT AGAIN.
