His diverse roster of projects – and handsome good looks – have catapulted Brad Pitt into a league of his own.
And the 51-year-old hunk was looking as charming as ever when he took the stage at the 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday.
The smiling star waved to the audience as he stepped up to the podium to present David Oyelowo with the Breakthrough Performance Award at the desert oasis celebration. Looking as confident as could be, the husband of Angelina Jolie strolled up onto the stage with the audience in the palm of his hand.

I also updated BP Press last week with the latest interviews. Tried my best to type them all out. If I am missing any, please let me know.
Furthermore I am taking a look at all the subpages such as Brad & Projects and updating them all or making them easier on the eyes. Hope you enjoy them. If you think it is missing a focus, then yes, email me. I like to be as elaborate as possible.
Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Steve Carell will add some superstar punch to the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala.
They are among 11 film luminaries presenting awards to 10 gala award winners Saturday in the Palm Springs Convention Center, festival officials announced.
Pitt, one of the gala’s most popular past honorees and presenters, will hand the Breakthrough Performance Award to David Oyelowo for his performance as Martin Luther King, Jr., in “Selma.” Pitt is a producer of “Selma” with Oprah Winfrey.
The Producers Guild of America has selected Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment to receive its 2015 Visionary Award.
Plan B produced “12 Years a Slave,” which won the best picture Oscar this year, along with awards season contender “Selma.”
Pitt and his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will accept the award at the 26th annual Producers Guild Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Jan. 24.
The PGA’s Visionary Award recognizes television, film or new-media producers for their unique or uplifting contributions to our culture through inspiring storytelling or performance.
“Plan B Entertainment is being recognized with the Visionary Award for producing stories that have breathed new life into some of the seminal — and in some cases, most painful — episodes of our shared history,” the PGA said.
British actor Jack O’Connell lent a Dictaphone off Brad Pitt so he could prepare for ‘Unbroken’, which was directed by Angelina Jolie.
The 24-year-old actor stars in the Angelina Jolie-directed war drama based on the life of Louis Zamperini – an American World War II prisoner of war survivor and an Olympic distance runner – and he’s revealed that Brad, 51, helped him to prepare for the role.
Jack explained: “Brad Pitt lent me a little Dictaphone thing, like a cassette recorder, and I really liked the authentic f*****g dated nature of that process, of putting this cassette player on during our conversations, mine and Louis’s.”
Jack took the Dictaphone with him to Australia, where the film was being shot and said it helped him a great deal.
The actor – who starred in ‘This Is England’ – told Collider: “So I had this borrowed cassette thing that I took to Australia with me and that was constantly there to listen to. So if I was bored and s*** or if I was killing time usually I’d just be listening to that.
“Not to hear him speak. It wasn’t particularly useful at all for the voice, because obviously I’m dealing with a 96 year old at that stage, but the essence of him, the kind of thing that might have made him.”
