Quotables: Brad Pitt Thought Jennifer Aniston Kinda Sucked, Too

“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. 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 intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

Am I the only one on the face of the earth who didn’t love Jennifer Aniston – or Friends – at some point? I cringe every time I see the show’s set as some kind of non-living testament to the nineties, and you know what? I have the same reaction to Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. And apparently he does, too. Kind of those “What was I thinking?“-type reactions. One of those looking-back-and-sort-of-laughing-uncomfortably things. I know a lot of you revere Jennifer Aniston as one of the greatest sitcom actresses to ever grace the small screen, but guys? I just don’t see it, and I never will, OK? Can we finally put that to bed now?

Brad Pitt Should Really Do More Commercials

And I just about peed when I saw this on my internet scouring earlier this morning. Our friends over at the Berry unearthed this totally bizarre, totally retro commercial featuring the talented Brad Pitt really flexing his acting chops. And by “flexing his acting chops,” I mean “I LOVE PRINGLES YES I DO ESPECIALLY THE RANCH ONES.”

Have you guys ever seen this video? More importantly, what are your favorite flavor of Pringles?

Here are some other classic Brad Pitt commercial appearances:

Brad’s Honda commercial

Sigh. He’s so talented.

Brad Pitt Saved a Lady’s Life

I get so sick and tired of celeb stories about breakups and skeeve (nude pic scandals, however, get a pass from me). Generally, I’d much rather read about heroicism. For instance: Harrison Ford making superhero rescues in his helicopter, Ryan Gosling breaking up brawls, or anything—just, like, anything—about Mighty Sean Bean. Stars! They’re occasionally nothing like us!

So here’s a nice one: Brad Pitt actually rescued a woman on the set of his new zombie flick, World War Z.

In one scene, a throng of extras was racing through the streets of Glasgow in a simulated panic, desperate to evade the encroaching zombie horde. One extra, in her hurry, ate it.

And once she was downed, she was in real, serious danger of being trampled to death in the melee.

The Scottish Sun‘s version of the story:

…Caring Brad grabbed her and hauled her back onto her feet.

The incident emerged as it was revealed that dozens of extras have suffered injuries including broken bones, cuts and bruises during filming.

Last night a set insider revealed: “It was total chaos as 700 extras were trying to get down the street […].

“Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped. I don’t think she could believe it when Brad picked her up.

World War Z, the movie, is based on the Max Brooks novel of the same name. (Max Brooks is Mel Brooks’ son, of course—World War Z is the sequel to his satirical how-to manual, The Zombie Survival Guide.)

The apocalyptic zombie movie is slated for release—fittingly!—at the end of 2012.

Oh. My God.

OK. Brad Pitt may just have reaffirmed his “hottest man alive” status in my book. Or near there, anyway. Have you seen these promo shots? They are unbelievable. The pictures are gearing up for Brad and Jonah Hill‘s latest film, Moneyball, and even Jonah’s looking … well, good. I mean, he’s lost so much weight recently that my head’s spinning and I’m kind of concerned that I’m finding him mildly attractive and not-at-all repulsive these days, but damn, Brad Pitt. Damn. DAMN!

From IMDB:

[Moneyball is] … the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.

So, OK. The movie doesn’t sound great. In fact, even just keywords in the plot make me want to definitely not see this movie (baseball club … draft his players … nah). But I will look at as many photos of Jonah and Brad as I possibly can. And then I will move on.

Forbes Releases Top-Earning Celebrity Couples List

I don’t know about you guys, but these lists always intrigue the crap out of me. These celebrity “power couples,” as they’re often referred to, bring in, like, unbelievable wads of cash annually. Jaw-dropping amounts.

I mean, this kind of money is money that I can’t even fathom having, and the craziest part is that there are people out there – both single and partnered up – who earn, like, quadruple this.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady topped the list this year, bringing in just around $76 million bucks. And that’s just the reported income. You can’t tell me that there isn’t some under-the-table stuff going on somewhere there.

The rest of the list is as follows:

2. Jay-Z and Beyonce – $72 million

3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – $50 million

I Guess This is Supposed to be Brad Pitt’s Latest Wax Figure

But I’m not all that sure – it could very well be what Robert Redford would look like if he were a zombie.

Brad Pitt‘s newest wax figure was debuted in Paris earlier this week, and it’s not too much of a stretch to say that the attempt was kind of a failure.

By the way, in the third picture down in the gallery there? Brad’s apparently pictured with Bruce Campbell, because there is no way in hell that is George Clooney.

Are Angelina and Brad About to Get Married?!

A photo of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

I know, I know, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been talking around the whole marriage thing forever, but this time it might be for real. See, this time it’s a little different – this time, Us Weekly reports, not one, not two, but THREE different sources have all confirmed that yes, these lovebirds ARE getting married, and they’re doing it within the next few months.

You guys know me, I’m always a sucker for weddings, so of course I’m hoping this is true. And could you even imagine what Angelina’s dress would look like? There’s no doubt this wedding would be a million different kinds of magic, right?
