Gwyneth Paltrow knows that the holidays are about bringing families together — even if that includes an ex-lover or a rival media queen.
Paltrow’s 14-year-old lifestyle and wellness company Goop released a video on Wednesday promoting its annual gift guides, curated lists of the finest (and, often, most expensive and impractical) presents.
Suggesting everything from a $239 satin baguette sleeve to a $250,000 vintage Ford Bronco, Paltrow has made it a tradition to tip her hand and reveal what she’s gifting celebrity friends. This year, Santa is bringing the following, according to the video: hand towels featuring the Kama Sutra for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker; Goopgenes eye de-puffing masks for Brad Pitt; a vibrator for Drew Barrymore; and $30 cured ham from Mercado Famous to upgrade Bella Hadid’s viral Tik Tok sandwich recipe.
Sky Sports F1 Pundit, Martin Brundle, has revealed on Twitter that he received a note from Brad Pitt after their awkward grid walk encounter.
Brundle carries out the grid walk in the run up to the grand prix races where he interviews drivers, team principals, mechanics, and celebrities. It is all done on a whim so sometimes it does not go to plan.
Ahead of the Austin Grand Prix on Sunday, Brundle was down on the grid. As Brad Pitt walked past, Brundle tried to asked a few questions which the actor seemed less than bothered about answering so kept walking.
Brundle has since revealed to his Twitter followers that Pitt has sent him a “note” to explain what happened. He wrote:
“Got a note from Brad Pitt explaining what happened with our near miss on the Austin grid. Unnecessary, but nice of him.
“Absolutely nobody is obliged to talk to me on the grid, but as I endeavour to make 10/12 minutes of live and unscripted sports TV I’m obliged to at least ask.”
Gwyneth Paltrow’ s husband is understanding of her friendship with her ex. ET’s Cassie DiLaura spoke with the 50-year-old Goop founder on Wednesday, and Paltrow revealed how she rekindled her friendship with Brad Pitt and how her husband, Brad Falchuk, feels about her doing so.
Paltrow and Pitt dated in the ’90s and got engaged in 1996, before calling it quits later that year.
“When we first broke up, we weren’t friends for a while and then we sort of found our way back, probably about 18 or 19 years ago, something like that, and then just kind of stayed in touch over the years,” Paltrow told ET, after publishing a Q&A with Pitt on Goop earlier this year.
Whether you remember it or not, Geena Davis is a treasure, a diverse and talented actress with a filmography that boasted some of the finest movies of the 1980s and early 1990s. Now, Davis is reflecting on some of her career highs and lows, chiefly as they relate to some famous co-stars.
Geena Davis also spoke highly of Brad Pitt, who got his breakout in 1992’s Thelma & Louise. “He was very self-effacing and sweet and kind and whatever. It never felt like he was All That.” (But, of course, he is.) She also heaped praise on co-star Susan Sarandon, who she called “a revelation.”
During the fun and informative conversation, they revealed why they made Bullet Train after Hobbs & Shaw, Leitch’s history of being Brad Pitt’s stunt double, working with Pitt and Bad Bunny, the new technology used on the film, why they love IMAX and if they’ll use it on their next film, The Fall Guy, with Ryan Gosling, how they pulled off filming most of the movie on a Sony soundstage in Culver City, and how they stage action.
Well, what I’m curious about is everyone in Hollywood is looking to cast Brad in a movie. He gets sent every script in town and basically, you know, he gets offered everything. So did your history give you the leg up to getting him in this movie? Had you been talking about working together for a while?
LEITCH: We had. I was really humbled to find out, he’d been watching my career since I started to move into second unit directing and directing. Obviously, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, he knew those things. We reunited on Deadpool 2 for that cameo. And he was like… He was a huge fan of the first film and he was also a fan of Ryan’s, and so to get him to do that, we got to reunite again. And he was just starting to see me as a filmmaker. So yeah, then it was a touch point, hey, we should find something.
Don’t get on Brad Pitt’s bad side.
The Oscar winner apparently keeps a “shit list” of actors he won’t work with, according to “Bullet Train” co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
“He is in a new chapter of his life, I think,” Taylor-Johnson explained of Pitt during the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.
While Pitt is a “humble and gracious human being,” Taylor-Johnson added that the actor expects the same from co-stars in return. “He just wants to bring light and joy into the world and be around people who are there to have a good time,” the “Kraven the Hunter” lead said. “You work with many actors and after a while you start making notes: ‘I am definitely not working with this person ever again.’ Brad has this list too: the ‘good’ list and the ‘shit’ list.”
The celebrated Belfast artist Colin Davidson has recalled how he taught Brad Pitt how to paint.
In a new TV interview, he discussed his career and time spent with some of the most famous people in the world.
Few could have predicted that Colin’s own art students would one day include Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt.
He said the A-list encounter started with an email from a lawyer who said a client in the United States had enjoyed his work and had asked to learn how to paint.
The Fight Club star had seen Colin’s work in a 2012 exhibition in London as well as on the cover of a Glen Hansard album.
When asked what Pitt brings to his role, Bullock, a producer on the film, jokes: “Not much. Not really much. I mean, what does he bring to any film he does?”
Kidding aside, she appreciates her fellow Oscar winner’s commitment to the project.
“The thing about Brad is he was supposed to be there for three days,” she says. “He’d just finished shooting. He was dead tired. He bulked up to do a three-day role. I had to ask him for a fourth day for free. He did it.
“You just realize he’s a movie star and a great actor for a reason: Because he works really, really hard. He brought a work ethic that was pretty astounding.”

In a cover interview for VMAN’s latest issue, Tatum tells Hill that one of his costars in The Lost City would make a great addition to the cast, if they ever decided to do a third Jump Street film.
“Brad [Pitt] in this movie is hilarious,” said Tatum, 41. “If we ever do Jump Street 3, we have to — I’m telling you, he’s comic gold if you put him with the right character.”
A guest-starring spot on the original 21 Jump Street TV series was one of the first roles for Pitt, 58, who makes a cameo in Tatum and Sandra Bullock’s upcoming adventure comedy The Lost City.
Jake Gyllenhaal talks about being starstruck when meeting Brad in W magazine (January ’22 issue).
Have you ever been starstruck?
… And I was definitely starstruck when I first met Brad Pitt on the set of The Good Girl. I was working with Jennifer Aniston, who was his wife at the time, and there were a lot of very racy scenes. I remember putting my hand out to shake his, and accidentally hitting the door. He said, so confidently and kindly, “Well, you have another one. It’s all right.” He was very, very, very sweet to me, and it was actually a really lovely exchange. But, yeah—I was starstruck.
A few weeks ago, it was announced that Brad Pitt was going to reopen recording studio Studio Miraval on his winery, Chateau Miraval, in the South of France. At first glance, this may appear to some like another celebrity vanity project. However, this is anything but that.
In case you’re unaware, Studio Miraval (now called Miraval Studios) is one of the legendary studios in music history. Albums like the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street and Pink Floyd’s The Wall were recorded there. Studio Miraval has also hosted sessions by luminaries like The Cure, Sting, Sade and The Cranberries. Not too shabby.
