November 27 Brad Pitt has Thanksgiving sorted out: ‘I’m all over that turkey’

Brad Pitt will be taking care of the turkey this year, the 51-year-old actor revealed when talking about his Thanksgiving plans. It seems Brad isn’t afraid to spend hours in the kitchen dishing up a feast for his wife Angelina Jolie and the couple’s six children.

“I’ll get in there, I’ll mess it up a little bit,” he joked to Extra on the red carpet. “We got Thanksgiving, man, I’m all over that turkey.”

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate =)

November 07 2015 Innovator Awards

One of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples – Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt – stunned on the red carpet Wednesday night.

The A-list pair stepped out for the WSJ Magazine 2015 Innovator Awards, where they kept close to one another on the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

The pair might play a couple struggling with their marriage in their upcoming film, By the Sea, but there were certainly no signs of strife between the real-life couple Wednesday. The couple sweetly stayed close for most of the evening, and when Jolie Pitt stepped away for solo photos Pitt cast a protective eye over her to make sure she looked comfortable.

The duo sat with Robert De Niro inside the event, and the Oscar-winning actor presented Jolie Pitt with the WSJ Innovator Award for Entertainment/Film.

November 07 Jolie Reveals the Brad Pitt Moment That Meant More to Her than Their Wedding

When we first heard that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wed in the South of France last year, we imagined that the nuptials took place in the clouds above the family vineyard, with God himself conducting the ceremony and their six children bearing witness in a scene so heavenly Michelangelo would have painted it on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. As details of the Jolie-Pitt union spilled forth, however, the wedding of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars proved to be charmingly more homespun than we envisioned—with Pax baking the cake, Zahara and Vivienne serving as flower girls, the kids writing the marital vows, and the children’s drawings even adorning Jolie’s wedding gown. And in a new interview, Jolie suggests that the wedding may have meant more to us than it did to the superstars.

When asked about the nuptials while promoting By the Sea, the dark relationship drama she wrote and directed that re-unites her and Pitt on-screen, Jolie responds nonchalantly, “It was just a nice thing.” Jolie, perhaps the only human who might call a wedding to Brad Pitt “just a nice thing,” explains her casual attitude about the nuptials.

“The ceremony was in France, but we had to do things legally in California,” Jolie continues to The New York Times. “One day I was in the edit room, and [Brad] was doing something and an assistant said, ‘You have to sign some papers.’ So we came back and between meetings we were told, ‘Here’s your license.’

“Then someone said, ‘The judge is outside,’” Jolie continues. “We both said, ‘What do you mean, the judge is outside?’ Then the judge came in, this lovely guy, and at some point, Brad said, ‘Shouldn’t we be standing up?’ The judge said, ‘No.’ Then suddenly we realized we were married, in the most unceremonial way possible.”

November 03 Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie open up on marriage, health in rare interview

As Angelina Jolie made the difficult decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in March, her mother’s own eight-year battle with cancer was never far from her mind.

“We had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors,” Jolie told Tom Brokaw in a rare joint interview with husband Brad Pitt on TODAY Monday. “So, the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother’s doctor. And apparently my mother had said to her, ‘Promise me you will take Angie’s ovaries out.’ So when we kind of got together, we both had a big cry, and she said, ‘I promised your mother, and I gotta do this.'”

Jolie’s mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1999 and died at 56 years old in 2007. Jolie and Pitt’s upcoming movie, “By the Sea,” was inspired by Jolie’s bereavement after her mother’s death. Jolie not only acts in the film but also is the writer, director and producer.

October 17 Angelina Jolie Pitt on Her Most Personal Project With Brad Yet and…

Angelina Jolie Pitt is calling the shots as actress, mother, philanthropist, and auteur. Next month, she and her husband, Brad Pitt, will appear as a married couple in By the Sea, which she wrote and directed and is their first on-screen outing since Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

“The director was very focused. The actress was unstable. And the writer was deeply confused,” says Angelina Jolie Pitt. Then she laughs. She’s talking about what it was like to direct herself and her husband as a married couple in her own script for By the Sea, an elegiac exploration of grief and love. Ten years after her last collaboration with Brad Pitt, Mr. & Mrs. Smith—the movie that sparked their relationship—it’s about as far from that marriage-as-war-of-assassins comedy as you can get.

“This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind,” she says, speaking with humor and intensity, bringing to life a soulless room at the Sunset Tower Hotel. Outside is glittering, heat-wave sun, umbrellas packing the Los Angeles beaches. Inside, Angelina’s in black—skinny pants, short-sleeved silk blouse—which makes her printer paper–white skin even whiter. She wears no makeup. Why bother? Her beauty has only deepened with time.

For years, she says, she and Brad called the script for By the Sea “the crazy one. We even called it ‘the worst idea.’ ” She laughs again, and covers her face with her hands. “As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones,” she explains. “Just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short.” Angelina, of course, has never played it safe. And at this point in her mythic life, perhaps the only risk left is to pare down the myth, expose her self.

September 03 Brad Pitt Takes Son Knox Out for a Father-Son Day at the Race Track

There’s nothing better than a little father-son bonding!

Brad Pitt took his youngest son Knox, 7, to the MotoGP British Grand Prix race Sunday in Silverstone, England, just days before the release of the documentary Hitting The Apex, a film narrated by Pitt, 51.

The actor, who held on tightly to his son’s hand while making their way through the crowd, was accompanied by Hitting The Apex director Mark Neale. Though the duo were there to promote the upcoming film, Pitt couldn’t help but take some time to watch the race with Knox.

June 27 Angelina – and Shiloh! – Bond with a 12-Year-Old Refugee in Lebanon

It’s a special mother-daughter trip for Angelina Jolie Pitt and 9-year-old Shiloh. The mom of six brought her daughter to Lebanon on Friday to spend time with a 12-year-old Syrian girl named Hala, whom Angelina met a year ago during a trip for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

“Shiloh is very aware that I hold refugee families in high regard and has been asking to come on missions and meet them for many years,” Jolie Pitt tells PEOPLE. “She had heard about Hala since my last visit to Lebanon, and has been wanting to meet her and her brothers and sisters.”

She continues, “It was wonderful that they were able to meet, play together, and make friends. So many refugees are children. I’ve often heard them say that the most painful thing is not that they have lost their homes – it is that they have lost their friends.”

June 10 Brad had a question..

Domhnall Gleeson is featured on the cover of Interview Magazine this month and is interviewed by none other than Angelina Jolie. The pair touched on various topics in their interview, including Star Wars, but the most pressing question came from Jolie’s other half.

In the interview, Jolie put the following question to Gleeson.

“So, Brad had a question for you. “What the hell is the M doing in your name if you’re not going to use it?”

At first, Gleeson turned the tables.

“…maybe he can answer why there isn’t an M in Brad?”

After Jolie complimented his name and asked if it was “old Irish,” Gleeson gave Jolie a quick Gaeilge class.
