Brad Pitt Thinks That He’ll Never Have Enough Money

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Charity, Kind Acts,

Brad PittBrad Pitt says he'll never have money.

The Moneyball actor - whose combined wealth with his fiancee Angelina Jolie tops $270 million - thinks he will never have as much cash as he wants. Despite donating money to a string of international charities, he confessed it is impossible to sort global poverty - because there are too many homeless people in the world.

"Listen, it's never enough and it's a whole new set of problems, just with a different scale. I hit the Lottery so I think you need to pass that on," he said. The star - who is currently living in Surrey, England for work with Angelina and their six children - added, "You can't get to every beggar on the street because you end up with nothing in your pocket."

He and Angelina have given millions to good causes over the years through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation. Sometimes the couple and their kids do without store-bought Christmas presents to cut costs. "We try to keep the money spend to a minimum and miss manipulative TV ads. The rule is everyone's got to make something," he said at the time.

No Wedding For Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie This Weekend

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Weddings, Rumors,

Brad Pitt and Angelina JolieBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not getting married this weekend, contrary to reports. The Hollywood couple will not be tying the knot in their luxury Chateau Miraval estate in the South of France any time soon, according to French officials who have dismissed the allegations.

"We don't know anything about it. Under French law couples have to get married at the town hall. Unlike with a religious wedding, there's no way a couple can hold a civil ceremony at their own home," Patrick Mareschi, deputy culture secretary of the village of Correns told Reuters.

Local newspaper Var Martin also refuted national news channel France 3's report on the impending all-star wedding, whose guest list includes Brad's Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney.

Perhaps the biggest tip comes from photo agency X17 who posted a sarcastic message on their website. "We sent an X17 photographer all the way down to the south of France - it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere - to check out Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's chateau Miraval to see just what's going on and ... drumroll, please ... there's NOTHING going on!" the site announced.

Brad PittBrad Pitt has turned into a groomzilla.

The hunky actor can't wait to tie the knot with partner Angelina Jolie and has been meticulously planning their big day for late September, even down to the placements and hymns. The couple are set to tie the knot on their sprawling estate Chateau Miraval in France in front of just 20 guests including their six children Maddox, 10, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

"Angelina isn't so bothered about when they tie the knot - it's Brad who is piling on the pressure. He wants the main house to be finished when the event takes place, even though the close friends and relatives who are invited aren't the types to care. He wants everything to be absolutely perfect," a source told The Sun.

Meanwhile it has been claimed the couple had plans to get married from the start of their relationship, according to the man who designed their engagement ring.

Jane - mother of her fiance Brad Pitt - recently wrote a letter to her local paper in support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in which she revealed she doesn't support same sex marriage or abortion, and her views have reportedly left Angelina angry.

"Jane has never wanted to talk politics with Angelina. She knew it would cause greater issues for them, and she wanted to try to have a relationship with the mother of her grandkids. She never thought her letter would be such a big deal," a source said.

Angelina and Brad are two of the most prominent gay rights campaigners in Hollywood, and at one time the actor stated he wouldn't marry the Salt star until same sex marriages were made legal across the US.

Brad Pitt’s Mother Writes Anti-Gay Marriage Letter

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad PittBrad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt has "Christian" views on abortion and gay marriage.

The showbiz matriarch - whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood - has written a letter to her local newspaper the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a "family man with high morals."

She also hits out at President Barack Obama because he supports the "killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."

"I am ... a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," she wrote.

Brad Pitt: Engagement Makes Sense

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Engagements, Weddings, Rumors,

Angelina Jolie and Brad PittBrad Pitt says being engaged to Angelina Jolie "makes sense."

The Killing Them Softly star proposed to his girlfriend - with whom he raises six children - earlier this year but insists they have not yet set a wedding date as they are hoping to stand by their previous pledge not to tie the knot until gay marriage is legal.

"We actually, really and truly, have no date. It's just something that makes sense to us, and certainly date-wise, it's just a rumor. We're still hoping that we can figure out marriage equality in the states before that date," he said.

Brad also revealed the couple are keen to work together again. When asked if they would consider making a film together again during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival, he said, "Yeah, we'd love to."

Brad is said to have proposed to Angelina following encouragement from their eldest son Maddox, 10, arguing it would bring some normality to their family life.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob ThorntonBilly Bob Thornton is "proud" of the way his ex-wife Angelina Jolie handles her life.

The 56-year-old actor - who was married to Angelina from 2000 to 2003 - is impressed with how the actress, who has six children with Brad Pitt, deals with her hectic lifestyle and believes she and Brad are perfect for each other.

"We're great friends and always will be. I'm proud of the way she's handled having a family. She's great for Brad, Brad's great for her. I support them 100 per cent. Angie is a little girl and a woman and a teenager and a ghost all wrapped up in one," he said, writing in his book The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts.

Proving how close they are, Angelina wrote the foreword in the book, describing the director as a funny guy but similar to a "mad mathematician."

"He has an unmatchable wit and can make you laugh until your face hurts. To be with him is like being with a mad mathematician. He is constantly counting and repeating. Some people walk through life able to quiet the voices in their heads. He can't. And I, and everyone else who knows him well, we love him for it," she wrote.
