One of the most “stars are just like us” moments at Sunday’s Academy Awards happened while Yuh-jung Youn was on stage becoming a winner among them.

“Mr. Brad Pitt, finally. It’s nice to meet you,” she said to crowd laughs after being presented the award for best supporting actress by Pitt, last year’s winner for best supporting actor. “Where were you while we were filming? It’s an honor to meet you.”
Youn, who won for her role in “Minari,” chalked up her reaction backstage to being star-struck. She’s been a longtime fan, she said, and “maybe I blacked out a couple of seconds.”

Enroot Launches with Wellness Teas Rooted in Heritage and Flavor

Enroot today launched its much-anticipated line of small-batch, slowly cold brewed, organic sparkling teas. The new beverages, consisting of five unique blends, pay homage to co-founder Cristina Patwa’s grandmother and her legacy as a farmer and food entrepreneur in the Philippines. Birthed in partnership with the James Beard Foundation, Enroot beverages are sustainably sourced and flavorfully combine organic teas, fruits and herbals to create a smooth, delicious tasting experience.

The female-led small business was founded by three friends, Cristina Patwa, John Fogelman and Brad Pitt, based on their shared passion for Food, Family and Farms, and a desire to help make a change in the food industry. As a public benefit corporation and pending certified B Corp, Enroot is a Sustaining Partner and proudly gives back to the James Beard Foundation’s Women’s Leadership Programs, which strives to address the lack of diversity and parity in the food and beverage industry.

“As admirers of the Foundation’s advocacy work, we collectively wanted to create a brand that is rooted in good flavor and intent – particularly by having a strong connection to our health, the earth and each other now more than ever,” said Pitt.

Brad Pitt is a fashion designer now, thanks to Brioni

The Roman tailoring brand has collaborated with Brad Pitt on a new capsule collection and it’s as edgily refined as the Hollywood superstar himself

If you could dress like one celebrity for the rest of your life, who would it be? Are you a Crocs and sweatpants-clad Justin Belieber or are you more of a Jake “suit, tee’n’chain” Gyllenhaal kind of a guy? Perhaps you’re a fan of “Timmy” Chalamet’s Prada nylons or maybe you’re a chaps and braids chap, like Lil Nas X.

If you’re anything like us, however, you’ll most likely want to dress like Hollywood’s forever golden boy, Brad Pitt, until you croak. Not least because the man could wear, well, a body bag and still look improbably chic.

The good news is that for the first time ever Pitt has turned his hand to designing and the result is an eminently wearable seven-piece capsule collection created in collaboration with Kering-owned tailoring house Brioni.

Brad Pitt Went from Playing a Stuntman to Doing His Own Stunts, Man

Last year, Brad Pitt reached a career high-water mark, nabbing the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of a late ’60s stunt double of shaggy hair and few words in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. Coincidence then that the 57-year-old has suddenly decided to pursue performing his own stunts with new vigor?

As Greg Rementer, the second-unit director and stunt coordinator on Pitt’s just-now-wrapping-production thriller Bullet Train, exclusively tells Vulture, the actor has been largely eschewing the services of a stunt double to portray a hitman named Ladybug in the film. “Brad did 95 percent of his physical stunts — the fighting,” Rementer says. “He’s like a natural-born athlete. He really got in there!”

Sara Gunn-Smith on badgering Brad Pitt about Oasis

My father, a voice coach, worked on the Michael Collins movie and I remember hearing ‘de Valera’ make his big speech in the crowd. Irish film is a passion to this day. I don’t like dropping names but I also met Brad Pitt who stayed at our house for a bit. My brother Andy was a toddler and they played on the floor. But all I was interested in, as I was obsessed with Oasis, was whether he’d met Liam Gallagher.
