Brad Pitt Is Mad At Costco For Using Caged Hens

brad pitt

There seems to be a bit of a movement at the moment regarding celebrities and free-range eggs. I’m not saying it’s not a serious issue, or one worth fighting for, but it does seem to be a strange preoccupation, particularly given all the MAJOR shit happening in the world around us. First Ryan Gosling came for Costco, and now Brad Pitt is joining the fight. He’s mad that the company is using caged hens, and decided to write an open letter to the company’s CEO, Craig Jelinek, to express his rage.

Here’s an excerpt from the letter (full thing can be read HERE):

“As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings. In these cruel cages, the animals’ muscles and bones atrophy from years of immobilization. That’s why the cages are illegal in most of Europe, and why California banned the cages by an overwhelming vote years ago.”

In short, cramming hens into cages for their entire lives constitutes cruelty to animals, and animals deserve better. As you know, many major corporations, from Burger King to Unilever, are getting rid of cages — and Whole Foods hasn’t sold eggs from caged hens in years.

I admire Costco’s many positive social commitments. You’ve shown great courage and integrity on a range of issues. Won’t you please extend that sensibility — and basic decency —to chickens?

For people who aren’t all that concerned with the whole “basic decency” thing, Costco should also realize that eggs from free range chickens TASTE better, as well. Seriously, crack open a cheap egg from the grocery store and then crack one fresh from the farm, or an organic free-range egg, and you’ll see the difference right away in the yolk colour. Now, not everyone can afford $5 a dozen on eggs, so from a consumer perspective, our hands are tied. But it’s a supply and demand system. If free-range eggs become the norm, then the price to use them will go down, and that’ll be the standard offering. Come on!

Is Brad Pitt A Secret Bisexual?

brad pitt bisexual

Okay, so this is a strange one (and a bogus one, considering the source), but I try to be an equal opportunity gossip blogger, so we’re gonna talk about it. Brad Pitt is apparently bisexual, meets men to sleep with on the internet, and Angelina Jolie not only knows about it, but she’s totally fine with it. Following so far?

From Star Magazine:

Hollywood insider Hesham “Sham” Ibrahim, who has been a long-time traveler with the same social circles as Brad and Angelina, exclusively told Star, “I don’t want to define Brad Pitt’s sexuality, but whatever it is, he’s into guys.”

And his sexuality with men isn’t a new thing. Sham toldStar that Brad’s bisexuality has been going on for close to 10 years and even spoke about two of his male hookups. Cameron Fox, who did adult films and was an all-American looking adult-film actor, was contacted by Brad on a website called nearly a decade ago. The two were supposed to meet at a hotel in Monterey, California. “When [Cameron] got there, an assistant met him in the lobby and took him to a room. Sure enough, there was Brad Pitt,” Sham tells Star. “Brad took one look at him, gave him a thousand dollars and asked him to leave. Cameron wasn’t as attractive as he appeared to be in his pictures. I guess Brad has picky taste.”

Sham also heard reports that this was a common case if his men weren’t up to his expectation. But when he did find one he liked, Brad seemed to have a routine down to the last detail. “They said he seemed to have the whole scenario pretty much worked out,” Sham says.

Well, that certainly sounds… not that hard to believe, actually. Angelina herself is bisexual and used to be into some freak shit (wearing a vial of blood around her neck, kissing her brother and the like), so I do feel like Brad’s alleged proclivities wouldn’t be all that shocking or scandalous to her. However, do I think he actively finds dudes on RentBoy when he’s an international superstar? Like he wouldn’t know someone in the industry already who could keep shit on the low? Come on.

Brad Pitt Busted His Face Walking In Flip Flops

Don’t mind Brad Pitt‘s busted face there. Sorry to disappoint you, but he hasn’t been filming the sequel to Fight Club or anything, he’s just clumsy as hell, apparently, and doesn’t know how to walk in flip flops. Don’t get me started on why he was wearing flip flops to begin with, we just need to deal with what’s before us. Brad is injured, but that didn’t stop him from attending the 3rd annual Light Up the Blues concert in Hollywood on Saturday night.

“This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops,” Pitt said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash.

“Regardless, I wasn’t going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after – wonderful people and I was honored to be a part of this important event.”

Unless you are at the beach, there is no damn reason for a grown man or woman to be wearing flip flops. Especially not in a major metropolitan city. It’s filthy and disgusting. Also, you might trip and bust your face up like Brad did. Learn from him.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may have adopted their seventh child

angelina jolie brad pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a massive family, with a whopping six kids. It works for them and that’s great, but six kids is a LOT, right? Well, how about seven? Word on the street is that Brangelina adopted a 2-year-old boy named Moussa, whom she met during a trip to Turkey. Moussa was abandoned at a Syrian refugee camp in Turkey, but he’ll soon be living it up in LA.

From Women’s Day:

“Angelina heard about him from a translator and she was obviously upset, but Moussa was just beaming from ear to ear and when he saw she was wiping tears from her eyes he toddled up to her and gave her a hug and it was a very emotional moment and everyone was suddenly laughing and smiling,” says a charity worker.

“She kissed him on the top of his head and then they were basically inseparable for the rest of the visit.”

After an extensive check confirmed he was an orphan, Ange began the process of filing for adoption.

Moussa will join Cambodian-born Maddox, 13, Vietnamese Pax, 11, and nine-year-old Ethiopian Zahara, as the adopted members of the chaotic “Brangie bunch”, which also includes biological children Shiloh, 8, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 5.

Whether or not this is actually true remains to be seen, but if so, that makes Team Brangelina 9 members strong. Seven kids is seven too many, in my eyes, but they’re filthy rich and love being parents, so I suppose it’s really lovely that they can give these kids homes and love. If only they could adopt every last kid in an orphanage – no sarcasm there, of course.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt got divorced – get over it, already!

jennifer aniston brad pitt

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were the world’s hottest couple during the late ’90s/early ’00s. Literally, we thought it could get no hotter (until, of course, he hooked up with Angelina Jolie). The whole situation was messed up – Brad very likely cheated on Jen with Angelina while filming a movie with her, though their relationship was already on the rocks. Jen was seen as the angel in this situation while Angelina was a homewrecking whore, yada yada. It’s all in the distant past now and everyone has moved on, of course, but some people feel like Jen must still be harboring some serious pain about the whole thing. WRONG!

Here’s how she explained it in an interview with Lee Cowan for CBS Sunday News:

“The fact that it still follows you around — I mean, I’m divorced. It’s gotta be painful. I mean, I don’t like it when people bring it up. But people still do, right?”

“I don’t find it painful, though,” Aniston said. “I think it’s a narrative that follows you because it’s an interesting headline. It’s more of a media-driven topic.”

“You’ve moved on, clearly.”

“Well, everybody has!” she laughed.

“You guys still talk? You friends?”

“We’ve exchanged good wishes and all that sort of stuff to each other, but not a constant thing. I mean, do you talk to your ex-wife?”

“No. … When I have do, I do.”

“There ya’ go!”

She’s currently engaged to actor Justin Theroux — happy and blissful, she says, despite the spotlight.

“But can you and Justin turn off all that noise and static?” Cowan asked.

“Oh, we do. We absolutely do. We know what our truth is. And that’s all just static.”

I truly do feel bad for Jennifer Aniston. I don’t think another actress has EVER been plagued by the amount of bullshit questioning she has ever since being with Brad. What happened to your marriage? Are you upset? Do you hate Angelina? Will you get married again? When will you have babies? Do you not want babies because you care about your career more? What about the babies?! And when are you getting married?! Like, I would seriously punch someone.

I’ve always found Jennifer Aniston really enjoyable and still do – especially since I’ve been rewatching Friends lately and she’s just so damn charming.

Here’s the full video of her interview, if you’re interested:

Brad Pitt got his first gun when he was in kindergarten

Welp, colour me surprised – I had no idea Brad Pitt was gun happy, but apparently he is. In fact, he got his first gun while he was still in kindergarten and to this day, won’t be at home without a gun stashed somewhere. But wait, before you get all up in arms, Brad does understand the gravity of possessing weapons and would never go crazy with them.

From Radio Times (via The Telegraph):

“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” said Pitt. “My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.”

The actor – who was born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri – was first given an air gun, then received a shotgun when he was six. By the time he was eight, he had fired a handgun.

The Radio Times reports that Pitt doesn’t feel that he and his family are safe unless there is a gun in the house.

“The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon,” he said.

I guess fair enough. He seems relatively sane and especially as a celebrity and the amount of crazies there are in the world, I suppose he feels he needs to be hyper-vigilant to keep his family safe. It’s a shame we live in a world where we need guns to protect ourselves, but it’s tale as old as time and not likely to change anytime soon, unfortunately, as long as ACTUAL psychos are able to get a hold of guns and other weapons.

I personally would never be able to live in a house with a gun – it would give me all kinds of anxiety, especially if children are present (though again, I do understand there are ways to ensure children don’t get a hold of guns, etc – but nothing is fail-proof!), but to each his own.

Angelina Jolie’s kids drew on her wedding dress

angelina jolie brad pitt wedding

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have always insisted that their decision to get married – and the wedding itself – was all about their kids, who were really into the idea. It seems that’s actually the case, as Angelina donned a pretty interesting dress when she tied the knot with Brad last weekend.

Here’s the scoop from US Weekly:

In the first photos, on the new cover of the UK’s HELLO! magazine, the happy bride affectionately kisses her now-husband Pitt.

“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family,” Brad and Angelina told the mag.

As previously reported by Us Weekly, the couple wed in a small intimate ceremony in a chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. “It was a non-denominational civil ceremony,” a spokesperson for the couple told Us in a statement. “It was very much a family affair.”

A family affair indeed. Not only did Jolie’s dress feature artwork drawn by kids Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, the children were also active in the nuptials.

Jolie walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne “threw petals, gathered from the garden,” the spokesperson previously told Us. “Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.”

Aw, well that’s sweet. I think it’s extra sweet that they really did do this for the kids and would have been perfectly fine not ever getting married if it wasn’t for them. I do think they will be together for a long ass time – like, think Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins time (they were the best couple EVER). I dunno, I just think they work!
