Brad Pitt Makes Rare Comment on Daughter Shiloh

Brad Pitt made a rare comment about daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt at the Bullet Train premiere in Los Angeles on Monday, August 1.

The dad of six—who shares kids Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 14, with ex Angelina Jolie—gushed over the teen’s dancing skills.

“It brings a tear to the eye, yeah,” Pitt told Entertainment Tonight of Shiloh’s hobby, before joking, “I don’t know where she got it from. I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.”

The Ad Astra star, 58, added that he would be happy for his children, no matter what career they choose.

“I love when they find their own way, find things they are interested in and flourish,” he said.

Footage of Shiloh dancing has been making the rounds on social media. One video, in particular, posted by dance instructor and choreographer Hamilton Evans, has racked up more than 2.4 million views on YouTube.

In the clip, which was shared in June, the actress put moves to Doja Cat’s “Vegas,” and people were impressed.

Pitt Pays $40 Million for Circa-1918 Coastal California Home

Actor Brad Pitt has paid $40 million for a roughly century-old home on a bluff in the Carmel Highlands along California’s central coast, according to public records and people familiar with the deal.

Local agents said the sale is one of the priciest ever closed in the Carmel area.

Known as the D.L. James House, the property dates to around 1918 and was designed by Charles Sumner Greene, a prominent early 20th-century architect known for championing the American Arts and Crafts movement, according to The Gamble House, an organization dedicated to the work of Greene & Greene, the architecture firm headed by Mr. Greene and his brother Henry Mather Greene.

Meet the Designer Behind Brad Pitt’s Skirt

At 58, Brad Pitt told Otessa Moshfegh in the cover story for GQ’s August issue, he’s entering what he considers to be the “last semester or trimester” of his career. That means picking up new hobbies, rethinking his work, and—yes—experimenting with his look. While promoting his latest movie Bullet Train in Europe over the last few days, he’s been wearing a string of very funky custom outfits, which were revealed to be created by private-label designer Haans Nicholas Mott, that seem to speak to all of these things at once. In brief remarks emailed to GQ, Mott gave us an inside look at his work with one of the biggest stars on earth.

Mott started his referral-only private clothing practice in early 2010, and also co-founded the ready-to-wear label Anecho with fellow designer Anastasia Khodkina in 2015. His process, according to a representative for the designer, is rigorous and intimate, in order to yield clothing “with outcomes determined by the individuals inhabiting the garments.” In Pitt’s case, the designer collaborated with the actor directly: “i love working with mr pitt because he has a clear sense of how he wants to be in the world and we make work in that space, i.e. mr pitt proposing an espresso linen skirt to go with the linen jacket,” Mott tells GQ, in all lowercase, via email.

Brad Pitt’s favourite musician of all time

Brad Pitt is not just an aficionado when it comes to the world of acting but also in the realm of music, too. Pitt’s favourite musician of all time is a pianist, who you might not know by name, but you have likely heard his work.

In 2021, Pitt exhibited his love of music when he purchased the legendary French recording studio, Studio Miraval. The property is the location where an array of iconic acts have made albums since it opened its doors in 1977, with Pink Floyd even recording sessions for The Wall in that very building. Additionally, the premises have been home to AC/DC, The Cure and The Cranberries.

Pitt has teamed up with producer Damien Quintard for the venture, and they are set to open the building’s doors for the first time in 20 years. The project is a labour of love for Pitt rather than a money-spinning exercise, and they plan for it to open its doors this year.

The fan site SimplyBrad lists everything Pitt has remarked about music, including his favourite musician of all time, George Winston. The actor made this revelation on a handwritten stat sheet in 1987, before he became one of Hollywood’s leading lights.

Pitt Accuses Angelina Jolie of Purposely Harming Reputation of Wine Company He ‘Carefully Built’

Inside Brad Pitt’s Design-Forward Real Estate Portfolio

Among Brad Pitt’s many accomplishments—seven Academy Award nominations, a successful wine label, the title of People’s Sexiest Man Alive—is his ability to invest in some truly trophy real estate. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor has spoken before about his affinity for all things architecture and interior design, telling Oprah Winfrey in 2004, “I love that architecture is this huge art piece you can be inside. I believe it lifts your soul and affects your mindset.” In late 2012, he collaborated on a collection with furniture maker Frank Pollaro, and in 2020, narrated a documentary about Frank Lloyd Wright. So it is no surprise that he has selected some impressive homes, and made them even more so with his time, investment, and attention to detail.

Colin Davidson found Brad Pitt ‘creative at heart’ during his painting lessons

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.

Brad Pitt granted joint custody of children with Angelina Jolie in tentative ruling

The actor Brad Pitt was granted joint custody of his five underage children with his former wife, actor Angelina Jolie, in a tentative ruling, sources confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday.

Pitt, who split from Jolie in 2016, was granted a request to adjust the current custody agreement to allow him more time with his children, according to two sources familiar with the situation. The new arrangement tentatively splits Pitt’s legal custody equally with his ex-wife.

Court documents in the ongoing custody dispute were sealed from public record in 2017 out of concern for the minor children.

Attorneys for Pitt filed a motion Monday in support of a sealed custody order, requesting notice to the court that Judge John W. Odenkirk “has conducted an extensive proceeding over the past six months in a thorough, fair manner and reached a tentative ruling and order after hearing from experts and percipient witnesses.” The motion was made to “correct” the record against “factual and legal inaccuracies” made by Jolie’s legal team in opposition.

Brad Pitt to Missouri State’s Class of 2020: ‘We are rooting for you’

Springfield native Brad Pitt had a message Monday for the 2020 graduating class of the largest university in his hometown.

“Hi everyone,” he started, in a video message. “Brad here from quarantine with a shout out to the graduating class of Missouri State University.”

Pitt, a Kickapoo High School graduate, acknowledged the global coronavirus pandemic has created unusual circumstances for the Class of 2020. They spent the final weeks of their spring semester under stay-at-home orders, largely finishing work online.

They will not have an in-person commencement ceremony until October or December.

“It must be very strange doing this in these trying times but know we’re rooting for you,” Pitt said in the message. “Our money is on you to make this world a better place. And we wish you all the best in your future endeavors.”

He ended with a direct message to graduates: “So, you did it. You made it. Enjoy. Congrats, again, and think big.”

A week ago, Elizabeth King, an assistant professor at MSU made a plea to Pitt posted on Twitter. She appealed to his “Ozarks roots.”

“I’m reaching out to you because I’m feeling wild and why not. I’m hoping you can send a message of support for our 2020 grads at Missouri State,” King said. “As you know, graduation is clearly not what students anticipated and there is a lot of disappointment rolling around here in Springfield.

“And I think you could help, right? We love you. Everybody loves you.”

In a video message posted Monday evening, MSU President Clif Smart told Boomer: “I was really proud of all of our faculty and staff who sent literally hundreds of video congratulations to our seniors.”

“I’ll tell you a performance I just loved. I don’t know if he’s out tonight, but Paul Walter Hauser,” Pitt told Variety’s Marc Malkin on the Globes red carpet. “He was just so moving in ‘Richard Jewell.’ The degree of difficulty and what he gave, what he did with it was really surprising to me.
