‘ALLIED’ Trailer Starring Brad Pitt & Marion Cotillard

I can’t speak to the quality of the upcoming Paramount Pictures film, ‘Allied,’ as I have not yet seen it, but judging by the new trailer, Robert Zemeckis about to deliver an awe-inspiring cinematic experience. The cinematography is stunning, the rhythm suspenseful, and the performances, well . . . I’ve never thought Brad Pitt to be a particularly impressive actor, but Marion Cotillard can certainly pick up his slack. Plus, he’s easy on the eyes, and despite the recent turmoil surrounding his marriage, I’d like to see the man succeed.

“ALLIED” is the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war.

Melissa Etheridge v. Angelina Jolie: Defends Brad Pitt

Melissa Etheridge visited Andy Cohen and revealed some striking details about former friend Brad Pitt, with whom she had a personal relationship. Etheridge sang at Pitt’s wedding to Jennifer Aniston and was also friends with Lauren Dern when Jolie began dating Billy Bob Thornton. At the time, Thornton was engaged to Dern and he left her for Jolie. According to Dern, she “left [their] home to work on a movie, and while [she] was away, [her] boyfriend got married, and [she] never heard from him again.” Dern likened it to a “sudden death.” Etheridge revealed that she had to help Dern break into her home to retrieve her possessions as things turned very nasty. She now hopes Pitt will resume their relationship, and she also said that he has not spoken to many of his close friends in nearly 10 years. Listen to the interview below. It’s startling.

Angelina Jolie v. Brad Pitt: A Look at a Romance Gone Wrong

No one was more surprised about the demise of Brangelina than myself. First, they did seem in love. Second, they had six kids, and one would think they’d work through their issues. Third, they have openly declared their love, most notably after Angelina Jolie underwent surgery to remove her ovaries and breasts in a preemptive effort to avoid cancer. And lastly, their relationship began with an affair, and though that is no indicator of long-lasting love, I simply assumed that if Mr. Smith wanted to leave America’s Sweetheart for Mrs. Smith, he’d have a damn good reason. And speaking of America’s Sweetheart, her new Prince Charming had something poignant to say, with Justin Theroux explaining that “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children.” As for Jennifer Aniston, she has remained silent, but the meme-sphere is on overdrive, and the general implication is that Brangelina got what they deserved. After all, didn’t they endlessly brag about falling in love on set while Pitt was in fact married to another women? And let’s not forget their W Magazine spread touting their fake family in the name of art.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a notoriously private couple. They had an air-tight team who never leaked stories, leading tabloids to use their typical guesses, such as “they’re on the verge of splitting,” with no additional details. At some point everyone is on the verge of splitting, so the more darts you throw, the more likely you are to ultimately hit a target. But now that they’re actually splitting, the leaks have become Niagara Falls.Suddenly Brad Pitt is an angry drunk that got physical with the children who are “now recovering” from an incident on a plane. The shocking revelation has one purpose and one purpose only: to tank his career. It serves her no favor in court, and it certainly is not helpful to the children, who now have an even more focused lens on their lives. Why does the public need to know about their personal problems? If the children need to be protected from their father, then keep that private. It also doesn’t help Angelina’s PR, because we all remember the pre-charitable woman who wore those vials of blood and said off-color remarks in nearly every interview. It’s possible she did not want to be blamed for the breakup, but this isn’t the way to circumvent that scrutiny. In fact, it escalates it.

Tabloids have long speculated that when Brad Pitt took up with Angelina, he lost all his friends, stopped filming sex scenes as per her demand, and used his nice-guy demeanor to make up for her cold temperament that was often noticed on the red carpet. George Clooney’s shocked reaction to the news of their split further confirms his estrangement with Brad, despite the fact that tabloids often tout the twosome as good friends. As for his non-public friends, who knows. All we know is that six children are in the mix, and I’m confused as to why Pitt’s perilous temperament didn’t surface earlier, perhaps before child number 3, 4, 5, or 6. For two people who once loved each other, one would think they could handle this with a tad more grace, integrity, and respect. I often tell people to leave their relationships with the same dignity with which they entered it. But since their relationship began sans dignity, perhaps they should have taken the opposite of my advice this one time.

Chelsea Handler Attacks Angelina Jolie

Though it’s certainly sad to see any marriage end, I can understand the press’s subtle glee with the Brangelina breakup. First, Angelina Jolie is a fundamentally unlikable star. She weirded us out with the Billy Bob blood vials and seemingly broke up another man’s marriage to America’s sweetheart. Sure you can’t take a man that isn’t already willing to leave, but it’s also low-hanging fruit. Longer relationships are susceptible to outside influence by the mere nature of time, boredom, and mundane life occurrences. The shiny and new will always seem superior. Plus, it’s Angelina Jolie, who is likely one of the last remaining movie-star Goddesses out there. Let’s also not forget their faux-family W Magazine spread which even Jennifer Aniston, who always takes the high road, called insensitive. Reports also circulated that Brad Pitt alienated his close circle of friends when he met Jolie, and she forbade him from acting in moves with sex scenes. One can therefore understand her questionable popularity.

There’s one looming question; however, that I’d like to address, and my readers are free to comment with their own hypothesis. Why does the public constantly pounce on their AMOUNT of children? Is it because they’re aghast at the idea that parents of such a large brood can’t seem to make it work, or is it because half of their kids are adopted? After all, six might seem like a lot, but no one comes down on Jim Gaffigan for it. Even Mel Gibson seemed to get a soft reaction to his now-ninth child.

When I saw the video below from Chelsea Handler, who I usually like, I couldn’t help but have a very negative reaction to her “85 kids” remark,which begged the aforementioned question, and she’s certainly not the only one to make this joke. Leave the kids out of it.

New ‘Walking Dead’ Trailer Features Negan: Watch Now

During casual conversation at many Los Angeles outings, the subject of my “free pass” comes up, and though Brad Pitt or Rob Lowe might be the easy choice, my selection is always the very sexy Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who first gained heartthrob status as Denny on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ He has since had many memorable roles, the last of which was on ‘The Good Wife,’ and he can now be seen on ‘The Walking Dead’ as Negan, the villain of season 7. Just who will he kill, and does he look just as handsome while doing it? The answer to the second question is yes, and for the answer to the first, see below. You might find a clue.

ALLIED Starring Brad Pitt — Watch New Trailer Now


If there’s anything I know about Brad Pitt, it’s that the man knows how to pick a role, and when teamed with the legendary Robert Zemeckis, we’re bound for a good film. ALLIED is the story of intelligence officer Max Vatan (Pitt), who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Reunited in London, their relationship is threatened by the extreme pressures of the war. The trailer below is surprising considering that I actually believed the rumors that Angelina Jolie would not allow Pitt to engage in love scenes with other women, which seemed to be confirmed by his recent roster of films. I guess you can’t believe everything you read. As an aside, I still maintain his acting skills leave much to be desired, but he sure is compelling to look at. And in the shallow world of The Dishmaster, looks ARE in fact everything. Watch below.

Jennifer Aniston didn’t take too kindly to the shock surrounding her John Mayer romance, insisting they adored each other and dismissing the eight year age difference. Mayer ran his mouth about their relationship, and the couple split shortly thereafter. He has since dated just about everyone in Hollywood.

bob jolieAngelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s weird romance made some serious waves, most notably when the creepy couple wore vials of each other’s blood around their necks as an expression of love. Their public displays of affection also caused concern, with many suggesting that the red carpet might not be the best place for sloppy tongue kisses. The couple divorced soon after Angelina adopted her first child, and Thornton later admitted that her success stalled the relationship, as he simply couldn’t handle it. She removed the tattoo of his name, but the two still remain friends.

 

 

Angelina Jolie Stars With Brad Pitt in ‘By the Sea’ — Watch Now

Since rumor has it that Brad Pitt is no longer allowed to take on romantic films, I suppose acting beside his wife is the only option for a more personal-life driven role. Set in the 70’s, the self-indulgent drama seems somewhat similar to Revolutionary Road, and much like Leonardo DiCraprio and Kate Winslet, I’m guessing they should have stopped at their first flick. According to Jolie who wrote and directed the film, the process took it’s toll on the two of them, with Jolie saying she’d “be directing [herself] and him in a scene where [they’re] having a fight, and [she’d] be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward [her and] . . . it was very heavy.

Melissa Rivers on #ASKHERMORE — Keep it in Perspective

Melissa Rivers visited Huffington Post to promote her new Book of Joan, and she confirmed my long held belief that actresses take themselves too seriously. While I certainly support equal pay for women, the dramatic cries about gender double standards during Hollywood interviews is a little extreme. Men receive the same invasive questions about their personal life (see Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Justin Bieber, Robert Pattinson, and many more), and they certainly are not asked about hot-button political issues while walking the red carpet. As for the infamous “mani-cam,” I’d say that’s more of a gooey gimmick than sexist shtick. Watch Melissa Rivers explain that if celebrities don’t want to get asked who they are wearing, then perhaps they should pay for their dress and forgo the free loan.
