A picture popped up of Brad and an apparently purple sextoy that belongs to Quentin Tarantino. There was a mention of this in som article so it’s apparently true lol. From it states that Tarantino has been known to catch actors off guard and take a photograph of them with this sextoy he names Gerry while they are asleep. So here’s Brad’s.. lol.. odd picture.

WTJ: How did Brad Pitt become involved ? I presume the fact that he has a new movie ‘Inglourious Basterds’ coming out helped.

SD: In mid-May, we got a call from one of Brad’s reps from Weinstein (yes, in reference to Inglourious Basterds) saying that Brad was interested in collaborating with us on a project. Turns out he had really liked the Mystery Issue (May 2009) we had done with J.J. Abrams and wanted to see if we had any stories that would be relevant. Why yes, we did! So Nancy Miller, our Hollywood editor, replied with word of our gestating etiquette package. We pitched the notion of Brad playing the “bastard/basterd”, clueless about modern etiquette as a way to illustrate a few digital do’s and don’ts.

A couple of days later, I got the call of a lifetime; I was sitting at my desk and his assistant rang and said “I’ve got Brad on the line for you.” And it was really him. Very cool guy. Turns out he’s a huge fan of the magazine and was completely open to the bastard idea. We talked for about 20 minutes, brainstormed a bunch of scenarios and agreed to do a shoot the following week.

Quentin Tarantino is bringing his latest movie, “Inglourious Basterds,” to Chicago next month as a fundraiser for the Chicago International Film Festival.

Cinema/Chicago, which presents the festival, will give Tarantino its Career Achievement Award at its 2009 Summer Gala on Aug. 18 at the AMC River East theater, followed by a screening of his comedy-tinged Nazi-hunting adventure film (which opens Aug. 21) and a reception at the Wit Hotel (201 N. State St.). The program will include a montage of the filmmaker’s works — which include “Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” — as well as what’s sure to be an entertainingly off-the-cuff acceptance speech from the fast-talking director.

No, “Inglourious” star Brad Pitt is not slated to appear.

“Tarantino is consistently inventive as a director, writer, producer and actor,” festival founder Michael Kutza said in a statement. “He constantly generates excitement and anticipation with each new film.”

NO one could deny that Brad Pitt has a lot going on right now: dad to six children aged under eight, Hollywood heavyweight, environmental campaigner and partner to arguably the most beautiful woman in the world.

His life is a juggling act but Brad Pitt wouldn’t have it any other way.

It’s a wonder the star of Quentin Tarantino’s new film Inglourious Basterds has time to talk. But, in typical dashing form, find time he does.
“This is a very good time for me,” declared Pitt. “I am involved in the kinds of projects that intrigue me, I have the most beautiful family anyone could ask for, and it’s great fun to be able to be here and take in this kind of atmosphere.
“This is a very interesting time in my life. I feel my life is on track and I’m very happy and very lucky to be able to be in this position.”

His role in Inglourious Basterds is yet another departure for Pitt who seems to pride himself on playing vastly different roles from year to year.

Brad Pitt: the man behind the soap opera
He’s gone from the Sexiest Man Alive to one half of the World’s Most Talked About Couple. Yet these days, with a gritty role in Inglourious Basterds and high-profile charity projects, Brad Pitt casts himself as the cultured philanthrope. But is it a role that suits him?

Brad Pitt is nursing a hangover. He rubs his bleary blue eyes, reaches for a jug of orange, and pours himself a tumbler, gulping it down in one go. There are a few lines around the eyes these days, and the snake-hipped young man with faded denims and a cowboy hat in Thelma & Louise is now a mature 45-year-old. But today, dressed in dark slacks and a blue shirt, and despite the sore head, he looks as ludicrously handsome as ever.

“Late night,” he admits before settling down in an armchair in the corner of a boutique hotel on the Riviera. “Now, I need coffee.”

The “late night” started with Pitt and his partner Angelina Jolie making what seems an annual pilgrimage to the red carpet at Cannes. Last year it was a protective Pitt shepherding a heavily pregnant Jolie (who two months later gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne).
