Brad Pitt Being Named A Dame Didn’t Help Angelina Jolie’s Status At Home

"Fury" - Closing Night Gala: 58th BFI London Film FestivalHere’s Brad Pitt at the closing night gala screening of ‘Fury’ for the 58th BFI London Film Festival. Isn’t he looking good in his suit? He had a great weekend: ‘Fury’ was #1 at the box office in the United States this past weekend! RELATED: Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon breakdance on ‘The Tonight Show.’

At the festival Brad chatted with reporters about meeting Queen Elizabeth when she named Angelina Jolie an Honorary Dame of the British Empire.

It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books. [It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget.”

So has Dame Angelina become The Boss at home?

Aaah, no,” Pitt told Us, laughing. “We have our own pecking order at home!”

Geez: what does somebody have to do to get some respect? LOL I’m just kidding: I’m sure Angelina’s happy with the status quo with the family.

Brad Pitt Feels More Secure Since Marrying Angelina Jolie

'Maleficent' Los Angeles PremiereIt sounds like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie didn’t tie the knot strictly for their kids’ sakes after all! The ‘Fury’ star admitted he himself is enjoying being legally married to Angelina. RELATED: Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon breakdance on ‘The Tonight Show.’

Brad said:

It was an amazing day and I think there’s an added security that comes with it.”

Overall, however, he’s been pretty tight-lipped about his wedding. Why is that? It could be simply that he wants to enjoy some privacy. He explained:

My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don’t have to think about it anymore. One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinized.”

Yeah, but it’s definitely contrary to the realities of being a celebrity. It sounds like Brad has figured out a way to do that, at least a little, though. If you think about it, we don’t see anywhere near as many paparazzi pics of him and Angelina as we do of some celebs. We see them at airports. That’s about it.

Logan Lederman Rocks Military Style & Dishes On Working With Brad Pitt In ‘Fury’

logan lederman gqActor Logan Lederman starred alongside Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in ‘Fury.’ That must’ve been quite an experience! He talked about the experience with GQ in the November issue along with modeling some military-inspired styles. RELATED: Clive Owen covers GQ’s first-ever age issue!

Here’s some of what Logan shared with GQ.

On working with Brad Pitt in ‘Fury':
“It’s intimidating when you’re in a room with him, but he’s—it’s just such an overused term—down-to-earth. He’s just a dude. It’s Brad Pitt, the world’s biggest movie star. But it’s a situation where he’s your sergeant. And meeting your sergeant for the first time is an intimidating experience, let alone if it’s Brad Pitt.”

On training for ‘Fury':
“We went to boot camp before filming Fury. The lack of sleep was difficult to power through: We’d have to be on watch every night, so there was little sleeping. We all lived in a tent. There’s parts of it I probably can’t even speak about. They just wanted to break us down and rebuild us. It made us a family going into filming.”

Looks like they had some serious preparation for this movie! You can read Logan’s entire interview- and see some more great military styles for men- in the November issue of GQ, which hits newsstands on October 30th!

Brad Pitt covers Details: ‘I’ve discovered I don’t suck at being a dad.’

brad1

Brad Pitt did an absolutely gorgeous photo shoot for Details Magazine for the November issue, to promote Fury (out this Friday). The photos are by Mark Seliger – you can see the full slideshow here. In some of the photos, Brad is giving me strong Garrett Hedlund vibes. I wonder if that’s why Angelina cast Hedlund in Unbroken? It’s Brad Pitt in nature, talking to trees and thinking in poetry. Brad Pitt on a motorcycle. Brad Pitt staring into the distance pensively. Deep thoughts by Brad Pitt. Details hasn’t released the full interview, but they did include some quotes in the slideshow:

On fatherhood: “I’ve discovered I don’t suck at being a dad.”

The paparazzi: “My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don’t have to think about it anymore. One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinized.”

His comfort with the outdoors: “I grew up in the Ozarks—something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes, and caves have all left an indelible mark on me. And I’m quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I had tattooed 94.9m (311.4ft)—the height of the largest sequoia.”

Moments of solitude: “My greatest moments of solitude…are found in the land, on the road…I try to carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India. I haven’t even come close to fulfilling my list—yet. But in the traffic of L.A. with a helmet on, I’m just another a–hole on the road.”

Choosing roles: “I choose a role solely by how it speaks to me. And I sit in a fortunate seat where I can pull the trigger on the more difficult films. I was once talked into a film for ‘career maintenance.’ I have not made that mistake since.”

[From Details]

Eh, what do you want me to say? The quotes give me Matthew McConaughey vibes and I wonder if that’s the point. Everyone’s on the McConaughey train these days after MM turned his career around with Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective. Now it seems like more actors are staring off into the distance and waxing poetic about space and time and nature and the meaning of the cosmos. Dude.

Kat Dennings and Josh Groban: Dating!

Remember Josh Groban? If not, then go pay your mom a visit and check out her CD colletcion. Yup, that guy.

Groban had a handful of hits in the mid ’00s and he’s since since shown off his acting chops with appearances in Muppets Most Wanted and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

We won’t bother to ask if you know who Kat Dennings is, because boobs.

Anyway, it’s an inspirational day for band geeks and chorus nerds the world over, because Groban has proven to the world that by harnessing the power of music, you too can ensure a future filled with giant, awesome breasts.

Josh Groban and Kat Dennings

Yes, Groban and Dennings are dating. Dennings posted the above photo of the two of them at some red carpet event. The actress later confirmed that she and Groban are an item.

Both have histories of dating fellow celebs: Kat recently broke up with 2 Broke Girls co-star Nick Zano. (Although there’s apparently no truth to the rumor that Dennings dated Drake.)

For his part, Groban’s been romantically linked to Katy Perry and Mad Men star January Jones. (Although his most impressive accomplishment remains his musical rendition of the best Kanye tweets.)

This isn’t a couple that anyone saw coming, and their names don’t lend themselves to a good mash-up (Gronnings? Kash?), butJosh and Kat are both mighty cool in their own rights, and we certainly wish them the best.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married out of nowhere in August 2014! Congratulations!

Angelina Jolie Meets With Queen Elizabeth, Named Honorary Dame

Angelina Jolie Goes To A Sexual Violence In War SummitMeet Honorary Dame Angelina Jolie! The Hollywood superstar met with Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace this morning. The Queen presented her with an Honorary Dame Cross. Angelina brought Brad Pitt and all six of their children along. RELATED: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt release a statement about their marriage.

Us Weekly has pics of the meeting in the 1844 Room (which I don’t have the rights to). A source said:

The kids were very excited to be at Buckingham Palace. Everyone dressed up really smart.”

Because Angelina isn’t a UK citizen, she cannot be titled Dame, which is why she was awarded the “Honorary Dame” title instead, although she’ll still have “DCMG” after her name. A dame, in case you were wondering, is the equivalent of a knight. What a wonderful experience for Angelina and her family!

Angelina Jolie was just officially Dame’d by Queen Elizabeth: OMG?!

wenn21815445

Back in June of this year, Angelina Jolie hosted the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in London. It was a high-profile event which drew wide media attention and raised awareness to vital issues like war-time rape and sexual assault in conflict zones. In the middle of the summit, the announcement came: Queen Elizabeth was anointing Angelina with a “Dame” title. To be more specific, Angelina became an honorary Dame Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George for extraordinary service to U.K. foreign policy. The Queen gave Angelina the title on the recommendation of William Hague. At the time, Angelina met with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and I thought that was as good as it was going to get. BUT NO. Today, Angelina went to London to receive her honorary title from the Queen.

Angelina Jolie, the Oscar-winning actress, has been made an honorary dame by the Queen for her campaigning work fighting sexual violence and for services to UK foreign policy. The film star, best known for her role in Hollywood blockbuster Tomb Raider, was presented with the award during a private audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Jolie was recognised in the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 Honours list and received the honorary damehood (DCMG) for services to UK foreign policy and the campaign to end war-zone sexual violence. During the audience, the Queen presented the actress with the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George. As a foreign citizen Jolie, the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative PVSI, cannot be addressed as Dame, but receives the award on an honorary basis.

The award was first announced in June during the week when Jolie was co-chairing the End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC) global summit in London with then foreign secretary William Hague.

She said at the time: “To receive an honour related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

Her work as a committed humanitarian runs parallel to her career as a leading actress who has been a huge box office draw for more than a decade. The 39-year-old star has been described by US Secretary of State John Kerry as a “fierce and fearless advocate” and he said her dedication to campaigning could overtake her successful film career as her lasting legacy.

[From The Telegraph]

You know what I love? I love that Angelina couldn’t get away from the Maltese film production to go to George Clooney’s wedding in Venice, but she managed to find the time to fly to London for a one-on-one with the Queen. Dear Angelina: you are perfection!!! She totally curtsied to the Queen too. As one does.

UPDATE: I just added better quality photos! And everyone’s saying Brad Pitt and the kids were at the Palace too!

Melissa Etheridge has never met Angelina Jolie, still thinks Jolie is ‘not brave’

wenn20915090

Last year, Angelina Jolie announced that she had gotten a double mastectomy because she, like her late mother, carried the BRCA1 gene. Angelina framed her double mastectomy as a proactive choice and her choice to make, a choice made after watching her mother battle cancer for years. More than a year later, people are still writing about “The Angelina Effect,” which saw more women get tested for the BRCA1 gene and more women make proactive decisions about their healthcare.

The publicity around Angelina’s choice and the announcement of her choice was overwhelmingly positive. Many people – including Brad Pitt – said that Angelina was brave and inspirational. Melissa Etheridge disagreed. In an interview conducted shortly after Angelina’s announcement, Melissa slammed the idea of Angelina’s “bravery,” saying: “I have that gene mutation too and it’s not something I would believe in for myself. I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer. My belief is that cancer comes from inside you and so much of it has to do with the environment of your body. It’s the stress that will turn that gene on or not.”

Melissa is a breast cancer survivor, and many thought Melissa was basically saying, “Angelina should have just sat back and waited until she got cancer instead of cutting out healthy tissue.” Melissa doubled-down on her comments in a later interview, once again bitching about the use of the word “brave” to describe Angelina. Anyway, Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live several days ago and Andy Cohen asked her whether she’s ever run into Brad or Angelina following those comments:

Melissa says she’s never met Angelina and she hasn’t seen Brad in ten years, or basically since Brad and Jennifer Aniston split. There is an old-school vibe (mostly from Melissa’s expression like she and Andy are in on some joke) of Melissa being vehemently Team Aniston, like of course Melissa hasn’t ever spoken to Angelina because Melissa is faithful to her friendship with Aniston. Then Melissa triple-downs on this whole concept of NOT calling Angelina “brave” because she cut out “healthy tissue.” Yeah. Melissa was really, really offended that some people were calling it “brave,” because preventative mastectomies are always “fearful” to Melissa.

Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis: Secret Wedding in the Works?!

He may have officially hung up his cleats, but The Captain is still on a roll these days.

Not only did Derek Jeter hit a game-winning single in his final at bat at Yankee Stadium, thus bidding farewell to the hometown crowd in the coolest fashion possible (Okay, he could’ve hit a homer, but Jeets ain’t a slugger!), now he’s positively killin’ it in retirement.

Not only Jeter he “curator of all things cool” for a new sports-lifestyle site called The Players’ Tribune, but there are rumors that he’s finally planning to settle down with his insanely hot girlfriend of two years, Hannah Davis.

Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis Photo

We first heard rumors that Jeter and Davis were engaged last year, but nothing was ever confirmed.

And of course it’s not the first time that we’ve heard wedding bell rumors about Cap. He was reportedly engaged to Minka Kelly shortly before he and the actress broke up.

This time, however, there’s reason to believe that Jeter might actually walk down the aisle…and not stop short. (We’ll show ourselves out.)

Jeets and his lady have rented out the famous Oheka Castle on Long Island’s Gold Coast (home to some of the world’s most expensive real estate).

The place served as the title character’s home in the 1941 film classic Citizen Kane. Needless to say, “swanky” doesn’t even begin to describe this place.

Several high-end vendors have been recruited from all over the world to cater something that’s only been described as “Derek Jeter event.”

Yeah, it could just be a retirement party, but TMZ claims to have sources who swear it’s a wedding.

Hey, if George Clooney settled down, anything can happen. Yeah, Jeets!
