Brad Pitt Is Sad Because He’s Old

And I’m sad, too!

If Brad Pitt can get old, anyone can get old.

Pitt, 43, spoke recently to Details magazine about being over the hill. (And they airbrushed the hell out of him on the cover. They may as well have just photographed the figure of him at Madame Tussaud’s.)

“One thing sucks,” he says. “Your face kind of goes. Your body’s not quite working the same.”

And it wouldn’t be an interview these days without a discussion of The World’s Most Important Person. “This Paris Hilton quest for fame … she’s blissfully oblivious,” he laughs, recalling how he and Jolie had been traveling for a month and turned on the TV. “And on comes Paris Hilton, going to jail. And so we just turned it off again.”

You know, Brad, when your lovely life partner was Paris Hilton’s age, she was wearing Billy Bob Thornton’s blood in a vial around her neck and talking to red carpet reporters about how they’d just fucked in the limo. That was years before she was the humanitarian husband-stealer she’s become today. I’m just saying. For all you know, in a few years, Paris Hilton will be married to a Nobel Prize winner and distributing AIDS medications in the Congo as a Goodwill Ambassador. You know? I’m just saying. And I can’t believe I’m standing up for Paris Hilton here, but Jesus Christ, Brad, your perfect fucking girlfriend used to be a perfect fucking headcase.

Quotables

“Everyone’s talking about going to rehab. I say give me a refill. Everyone says what happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas. I say fuck that.”

Justin Timberlake, at his Las Vegas show at Mandalay Bay, as he tossed back a shot on-stage. The singer wrapped up the show with a performance of “Dick in a Box.”

Gasp! Is Criss Angel Using Britney Spears for Publicity?

Criss Angel is Just Using Britney Spears for Publicity

This can’t be! Everyone who dates Britney Spears loves her for who she is inside. I mean, what’s not to like? The ever-changing extensions? The regular weight gain? The history of promiscuity? The hick accent? The fact that everyone in the whole wide world has seen her vagina? How could anyone who hooks up with Britney have ulterior motives?

But rumor is that Britney didn’t win Criss over with her darling personality.

“Angel … was “ecstatic” when his manager, Jeff Kwatinetz, asked him to meet with Spears, who was interested in using illusion in her VMA performance this Sunday. The two “hooked up the night they met” and Angel has been “using her to get press ever since,” we’re told. A Vegas spy said, “He doesn’t even really talk to her when they go out. This weekend at [club] LAX, they weren’t seated at the same table, but when the paparazzi were around he jumped in all the pictures. . . . The paparazzi all have his number.”

Doesn’t Britney have anyone around her who’s not being paid to be there?

I can’t think of a single person.

Tommy Lee Is the Ultimate Gentleman

Tommy Lee Fucking a Blonde Chick at a Bar in the Hamptons

It’s tragic to hear that someone who recently dated Kimberly Stewart could fall so far. From Page Six:

TATTOOED rocker Tommy Lee will hook up just about anywhere and with anyone. Lee’s raunchy bar behavior grossed out a room full of revelers at Dune in the Hamptons on Sunday night when the Motley Crue drummer and a blond party girl “were flat-out [bleep]ing” on a banquette, according to multiple witnesses. One told us, “When Tommy walked in, he asked, ‘Is it cool to have sex in here?’ The hostess thought he was kidding, but . . . then he just went to town with this girl. We were trying not to pay attention because it was so disgusting.” A rep for Lee told us, “this story is not true.”

I’m disappointed mostly that no one took pictures. But perhaps, in true Tommy Lee style, the video will hit the web soon enough.
