Angelina Jolie Dishes on Watching Movies With Brad Pitt: I Fall Asleep

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.

Brad Pitt: Total Prankster, Says Moneyball Costar Jonah Hill

“It was scarier to work with Phil, because his character didn’t like me in the movie,” Hill said. “Brad and I are the two leads of the movie and Phil, he doesn’t like us in the movie. He doesn’t like what we represent.

Moneyball is the real-life story about Oakland A’s manager Billy Beane’s (Pitt) attempt to revamp the disgraced baseball team with the help of his assistant general manager (Hill).

Hill echoed what so many other celebs have told us about working with Pitt.

He’s fantastic,” he said. “He’s so giving. He’s just, like, a guy you look up to for so many reasons. He’s the coolest guy! He started playing pranks on me like right off the bat.” Hill declined to say exactly what Mr. Pitt did, but we imagine whoopee cushions were not involved.

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 sends his condolances

Brad Pitt has reached out to Bam Margera following the death of his best friend and Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn.

The TV prankster passed away early on Monday (20Jun11) after his Porsche spun out of control at high speed and smashed into trees in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania.

Margera openly sobbed on U.S. TV on Tuesday (21Jun11) as he visited the site where Dunn and passenger Zachary Hartwell perished, and he went through further heartache on Wednesday afternoon (22Jun11) as he attended a private memorial service for his pal in Philadelphia.

But Margera has been helped in his grief with many messages of support from his family and friends – including a touching message from Hollywood star Pitt.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, Margera writes, “Wow, just got a nice text from brad pitt concerning dunn, tnx (thanks) 2 (to) everyone for the texts, cheers me up.”

‘God of Carnage’ opening

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt took in a night of theater Wednesday, attending the opening of “God of Carnage” at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Hollywood’s hottest couple slipped in a back entrance, avoiding the paparazzi on the red carpet, professional autograph-seekers and throngs of mere mortals milling outside the downtown L.A. theater.

Seated in the center orchestra, Pitt and Jolie kept their eyes squarely focused on each other, seemingly oblivious to the double takes and spinning heads around them (even actress Frances Conroy was spotted sneaking a peek). Jolie and Pitt offered polite acknowledgments when Center Theatre Group artistic director Michael Ritchie and his wife, actress Kate Burton, took their seats next to the pair.
