May 12 Jack O’Connell opens up about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt friendship

Jack O’Connell has opened-up about his friendship with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The actor, who starred in Jolie’s 2014 film Unbroken, has been friendly with the couple ever since, even going to the pub with Jolie in his hometown of Derby.

“She wanted to meet my people,” O’Connell told ES Magazine of the trip. “We all went to this place out of the way in Derbyshire, a pub where you can eat nice food.

“She came up on her own, man. She has some security people but they weren’t really involved and, yeah, we were all just sat around.”

The actor also opened-up about the death of his father when he was starring in Skins, revealing that it was “tough”.

However, he said that Brad Pitt gave him comfort over his loss: “He was like, ‘Look man, I know your situation and I know you lost your dad. Just to let you know I’m here if anything’s puzzling you.'”

May 09 Make It Right Foundation among 2016 National Design Award winners

Since 2000, the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, has celebrated the best the American design industry has to offer with the National Design Awards. Created to help recognize “excellence, innovation, and enhancement of the quality of life,” this year’s award winners feature a who’s who of architects and designers like Moshe Safdie, Bruce Mau, and Geoff McFetridge, to name a few.

While names like those certainly ring a bell among the design community, the 2016 National Design Awards is enjoying the rare ability to appeal to America’s Hollywood fan base as Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation took home the esteemed Director’s Award. Don’t roll your eyes just yet — the nonprofit he created in 2007 constructs homes and buildings for people in need. In other words, Pitt and Make It Right deserved the award.

Aside from Pitt’s inherent star power, the National Design Awards also doled out a handful of acclaimed honors to the best and brightest in the field of design. As touched on above, Moshe Safdie nabbed the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award for his continued innovation as an urban planner and his propensity for socially responsible design. Additionally, New York City’s Center for Urban Pedagogy took home the Corporate & Institutional Achievement award for its work to increase meaningful civic engagement, most notably among historically underrepresented neighborhoods.

“The National Design Awards program celebrates design as a vital humanistic tool in shaping the world,” reads the Cooper Hewitt website. “[It] seeks to increase national awareness of design by educating the public and promoting excellence, innovation, and lasting achievement.”

May 09 Murphy Anthology ‘Feud,’ Starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon

Brad Pitt will serve as an exec producer on the project, season one of which will center on the rift between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis and Dominic Burgess co-star.

Ryan Murphy is adding yet another star-studded anthology to his résumé.

The prolific producer has scored a straight-to-series order for Feud, an anthology — as its title suggests — about famous feuds, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, the eight-episode first season revolves around the legendary rift between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis that occurred during the making of 1962 feature film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? The rivalry between the two stars was paramount to the movie’s popularity at the time. (The pic scored five Oscar nominations, including one for Davis.)

April 30 Geena Davis looks back on her famous sex scene with Brad Pitt

It was the role that put Brad Pitt on the Hollywood map: that of J.D., the sexiest grifter in film history, who – in the words of Louise (Susan Sarandon) – lays Thelma (Geena Davis) properly.

“There were five candidates for the part,” Davis told EW during our Thelma & Louise reunion. As the actress recalled, she did screen tests with all the possible actors, and while director Ridley Scott didn’t immediately ask Davis for her opinion on the quintet, she had one at the ready.

“They didn’t ask me afterward what I thought,” she told EW of Scott and the film’s casting director. “I said, ‘Do you want to hear what I thought?’ They said, ‘Oh, yes, of course.’ I said, ‘The blond one! Hello?’”

Pitt, that aforementioned blond one, has since become an international superstar, and according to Sarandon that’s because of how he plays off his appearance. “He, Johnny Depp… there are a few of these guys who are so beautiful, and yet they played characters,” Sarandon said.

Under the non-exclusive agreement, Cross Creek and Savulescu will finance development for a slate of director- and star-driven commercial films in the $20M-$65M budget range.
