December 23 Meet the Woman Behind All The Big Short’s Exquisitely Bad Haircuts

Oscar-winning hairstylist Adruitha Lee talks about making wigs for Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Christian Bale—and going out of her way to give Brad Pitt the worst haircut he’s ever had

What kind of stuff did you do that was against your natural instinct?
I permed the wig I used on Ryan just so I could get that movement and that texture, and it always looked a little funny to me. On Steve’s wig I used Just For Men hair color on the wig because that color is just a little bit off. And I gave Brad a bad haircut, literally.

So everyone is wearing a wig except for Brad?
Yes. That’s his real hair, with a bad haircut. I would pick up pieces of hair and not use a comb, just my fingers and the scissors. Just basically almost cut whole chunks out of it. We laughed about what a bad haircut it was. I remember when the first trailer came out people were saying things like I hope the movie is better than the wigs. I got tickles because I was just doing my job.

December 14 Pitt’s Netflix Pic ‘War Machine’ Wraps UAE Shoot

Pic is produced by Netflix and Pitt’s production company, Plan B Entertainment, and inspired by the bestselling book “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan” by late American journalist Michael Hastings. The book is based on Hasting’s interviews with general Stanley McChrystal who was appointed to command the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan in 2009.

Pitt toplines as a four-star U.S. military general, patterned after McChrystal, who is determined to win the “impossible” war in Afghanistan. Anthony Michael Hall, Will Poulter and Topher Grace also star.

The team behind “War Machine” arrived in Abu Dhabi in August to set up the production office before the UAE shoot which began in Abu Dhabi in October.

December 06 Watch: Exclusive ‘The Big Short’ Character Featurettes

Today, we’re happy to debut four exclusive character featurettes for Adam McKay‘s (The Other Guys, Anchorman) long-time passion project and dramatic directorial debut, The Big Short. Based on the best-selling nonfiction book from Moneyball and The Blindside author Michael Lewis, the film investigates the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s through the story of four economic “outsiders”, played by Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt, who predicted the cataclysmic consequences of the major housing and bank fraud and use their inside knowledge to turn a profit of their own.

Our exclusive featurettes offer a little insight into the guys who beat the banks at their own game, including Mark Baum (Carrell) aka, “The Leader”, the fiery, outspoken Wall Street banker who doesn’t trust the system, Jared Vennett (Gosling), aka “The Insider”, the well-dressed smooth talker, Michael Burry (Bale), aka “The Visionary”, the socially awkward next-level genius, and Ben Rickert (Pitt), aka “The Mentor”, the wise ex-Wall Street pro. Meet them all for yourself in the character videos below.

December 06 Angelina Jolie Pitt on Filming Fight Scenes with Brad Pitt

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt began filming By the Sea, they knew they were going to discover new things about their relationship.

One big surprise? Jolie Pitt, who directed the film, admits it was especially eye-opening to see how they both react in the aftermath of a blowout.

“Brad has never seen what I’m like when he’s left me after one of our fights,” she told French Elle for its December issue. “Sometimes I’m strong. But as soon as he leaves the room, I melt into tears.”

“With this film, he sees it,” she added. “And I see into his private moments.”

Jolie Pitt, 40, said that seeing how the other copes after a fight helped them understand one another better in their real-life relationship.

December 04 Hollywood Reporter

“People suffered as they did and yet no one was held accountable and nothing seemed to change,” says ‘The Big Short’ producer-actor.

A version of this story first appeared in the Dec. 11 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

On the afternoon of Nov. 23, The Big Short is premiering in New York, just a cab ride away from the epicenter of the financial meltdown of the mid-2000s. The film’s Brad Pitt is livid that greed continues unfettered and justice is elusive. “It’s disgusting. It makes me angry,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter of the Wall Street-generated housing and credit bubble that left millions without a home due to foreclosure. “What I liked about the film is that it tries to explain to people how they got screwed.” Pitt, who also produced the $28 million film through his Plan B Entertainment, hopes the film spurs the public to question exactly how this happened. In a wide-ranging conversation, Pitt talks about why he opted for a small role, how comedy director Adam McKay won the job and whether or not he blames President Obama for the lack of accountability.

How did you become involved as a producer?

Well we got the book. We’re sitting on this great book by Michael Lewis, and it was a subject that I really wanted to take on — still wondering, questioning, angered by the fact that this whole collapse happened and people suffered as they did, and yet no one was held accountable and nothing seemed to change. And it’s true nothing has really changed. So we were lucky to win Michael’s book and we set about developing the script, so we started with Charles Randolph, and we got a really smart, insightful script but still, this kind of material is very, very difficult to get made these days. So I had met Adam McKay a few years prior. We were looking, talking about doing a film about Lee Atwater that he had developed. And I walked away completely charmed by him and absolutely impressed with his knowledge of global affairs and his wit. And my partners had been talking to him at the same time about something, and it just made sense. It just felt like the perfect [fit] if we could get Adam on. It would be the perfect kind of balance and delivery system for this kind of material. And it’s fair to say once it went through Adam’s filter, we really felt like we had our script, we had our story.
