Maybe not new for you SB visitors but new for me! I was happy to discover some information with pictures of this pilot episode of ‘The Kids are Alright‘. An ABC series that never made it to the screen, back in 1989. Brad is portrayed as the usual next door hunk, but I am not complaining. Love finding stuff like this! Enjoy.
Rumors, begone. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples, but the pair have one thing in common that goes without saying: an unwavering love and respect for one another.
In a rare joint interview set to air Monday, Nov. 2, the couple, who secretly tied the knot in France in August 2014, sat down with NBC’s Tom Brokaw to open up about their life as a married couple.
Asked how he felt when Jolie, 40, had to undergo a surgery to remove her ovaries earlier this year, Pitt, 51, said he was behind the actress’ choice 100 percent.
“Whatever’s got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is gonna be done,” the Moneyball actor said. “This was her charge, no question. It’s a scary decision. There’s many things that can go wrong and go many different directions.”
Jolie opted to remove her ovaries two years after going public with her decision to get a preventive double mastectomy in 2013. But despite her own nervousness, she said she knew she could count on Pitt to keep her afloat.
“I knew through the surgeries that [Pitt] was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was going to feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn’t going to let that happen,” she said.
The Oscars are less than a week away and the entire list of presenters has been announced!
In years past, the Academy Awards producers have released the names of a few presenters each day leading up to the big night, but this year the star floodgates have been opened with all 47 names being unveiled.
The presenters for Sunday’s Oscars announced on Monday include:
Amy Adams, Kristen Bell, Jessica Biel, Jim Carrey, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Penelope Cruz, Benedict Cumberbatch, Viola Davis, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Sally Field, Harrison Ford, Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield, Jennifer Garner, Whoopi Goldberg, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Goldie Hawn, Chris Hemsworth, Kate Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson, Angelina Jolie, Michael B. Jordan, Anna Kendrick, Matthew McConaughey, Ewan McGregor, Bill Murray, Kim Novak, Tyler Perry, Brad Pitt, Sidney Poitier, Gabourey Sidibe, Will Smith, Kevin Spacey, Jason Sudeikis, Channing Tatum, Charlize Theron, John Travolta, Kerry Washington, Emma Watson and Naomi Watts.
“It’s one of those few films that … cuts to the base of our humanity,” Pitt told Ann Curry on TODAY on Wednesday. “And it was not until I saw Solomon Northup’s story that I fully, fully (grasped) the utter horror of losing your freedom or denying another one their freedom, taking their freedom, splitting their family apart.”
“It’s why I got into film in the first place,” Pitt said.
Pitt told Curry that his role is small — he’s onscreen for about eight minutes — but putting himself in the forefront was never his goal.
“I’m there to support the story,” he said. “The main performances are Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lupita Nyong’o, (Michael) Fassbender. These are such demanding parts. These guys had to keep themselves in just this perpetual state of angst and foreboding and longing. And they did it.”
For Pitt, making “12 Years” was the very definition of what movies are for. “It’s one of those few films that cuts to the base of our humanity,” he said.
But “12 Years” features some disturbing imagery, and as the actor explained, he’s not about to show it to his youngest children (he has six with Angelina Jolie). “Maybe my eldest I would, right now,” he said. “I’d rather for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more.”
That kind of subtle understanding is a wisdom that has come with age, and — fans, brace yourself — Pitt is about to turn 50 in December.
“I haven’t minded a bit,” he said about approaching AARP age. “I have no complaints.”
