Brad Pitt has declared himself a fan of Liverpool Football Club.
During an interview for his new film, Moneyball, Pitt said that he if he was not a Red he would be “disowned” by some friends.
“I have some friends who are very close to Liverpool, so if I went another way I might be disowned,” said the 47-year-old.
If you saw Moneyball this weekend, perhaps you walked out of the theater thinking, Wow, that Brad Pitt really is a charming and handsome movie star. Or maybe instead you thought, Huh, Brad Pitt eats a lot in movies. The man does not stop feeding. (Except to throw a chair across the locker room, and then: more food.) Popcorn, Twinkies, Christmas cookies, a cheeseburger — it all ends up in Brad Pitt’s perfect mouth. When Terry Gross asked him about this exact phenomenon, Pitt ascribed the tic to the intensity of the real life Billy Beane, but Ocean’s Eleven aficionados will remember that Brad is chowing down in almost every scene of that movie, too. In fact, he eats in a lot of his movies. And so to prove the Brad Pitt Eating in Movies Theory, Vulture put together a list of every single item of food that Pitt has ever eaten in a movie, ever.

The night was devoted to unveiling his latest movie, the based-on-fact baseball movie Moneyball, but Brad Pitt still found a moment to clarify comments he made last week regarding his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.
“That was never my intention for it to be spun that way,” he said of those who interpreted his remarks to be critical of his former mate. “People read things into it that just weren’t there.”
At the Oakland Coliseum, where the movie premiered and much of Moneyball takes place, Pitt, 47, said the role of Oakland Athletics manager Billy Beane offered him a unique behind-the-scenes perspective of America’s favorite pastime. (The film is based on nonfiction author Michael Lewis’s Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.)

A story posted on Parade magazine’s website on Thursday in which Brad Pitt talks about his life with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston put the actor in damage control mode, saying his words had been misinterpreted.
The 47-year-old Pitt said in a profile by Parade magazine posted on the publication’s website that he is now a “satisfied man” in his relationship with Angelina Jolie.
The “Moneyball” star compares his new life with Jolie, with whom he is raising 6 kids, favorably to the roughly five years he spent married to Aniston.
“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,” Pitt told Parade.
“I think that my marriage (to Aniston) had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t,” he added.
Those quotes were interpreted by many media outlets as meaning Pitt thought Aniston was uninteresting. But the A-list actor sought to clarify himself in a statement issued later by his talent agency.
“It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for,” Pitt said in the statement.

“Brad jokes with me, because I”ll watch a movie and I’ll be asleep in five minutes,” she says in the interview. “I’m terrible. There’s some of my own I’ve never seen.”
She does admit that she manages to watch the ones Brad stars in, however, adding, “Since I’ve been with him I’ve seen all the ones we’ve gone to the premieres for.”
So what’s her favorite Brad movie?
“I think I liked Jesse [The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford] because I knew how hard he worked on that. It’s interesting: when you live with an artist, it’s not the film but the process you respect. I know he took a risk on that, fought for it, stood true to what he believe. He didn’t cave when people were pressing him, and he made a beautiful film.”
Angelina Jolie Quashes Rumors of a Secret Wedding and Admits to Fears About Writing and Directing Her First Feature Film
“Brad thinks I’m going to be a nightmare,” Jolie jokes, telling how directing her new movie, In the Land of Blood and Honey, has changed the way she will approach her acting career. “I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.”
Jolie does elaborate on Brad’s supportive role throughout the project. “He’d come in and say what he liked or what he didn’t understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things. He’s been so supportive. But it’s hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don’t think he’s a fair judge.” But she goes on to say that “people will judge for themselves. I think if you make a good movie people walk away arguing.”

Brad Pitt has tested the waters for selling his Malibu beach house before, but now it’s official – and on the market for $13.75 million.
While photos of the home aren’t easy to come by, Realtor.com reports the four-bedroom, four-bathroom mid-century modern home faces Point Mugu State Park on one side and has incredible Pacific Ocean views on the other. The home has beach access to a private cove.
According to Real Estalker, Pitt bought the home for $8.41 million in 2005, around the time he was getting a divorce from Jennifer Aniston. Pitt, an architecture fan, extensively renovated the home. In 2009, the house was put up as a “pocket listing” for $18 million – meaning there was an agreement with a broker but it was never advertised or put on the multiple listing service. In comparison, the current $13.75 million listing price seems like a bargain.
