Prince George's christening was on Oct. 23, and we finally learned exactly who Kate Middleton and Prince William tapped to be his royal godparents. It got us thinking about the children of Hollywood royalty, since their elite entourages also get started before they even hit preschool. Check out which which stars have accepted the real role of a lifetime — and how they're all connected — as we play six degrees of celebrity godparents! Get ready to pay attention, because this insider stuff gets complicated.
Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem are all starring in this week's new release, The Counselor. I know, take a moment to compose yourself. We got a peek at the hotness explosion in the trailer, and we have even more sexy stills from the Ridley Scott drama. The film, about a lawyer who gets sucked into a drug trafficking ring, sounds pretty heavy, so for now, let's just enjoy cowboy Pitt and Bardem dressing all crazy.
Anyone who's got a brain can see that zombies are having a Hollywood moment right now, and it's even more timely since their favorite holiday — Halloween — is breathing down our necks. So we're going beyond the cinematic grave to tally up the celebrities who've been faced with the zombie apocalypse and met one of three fates: undead, dead, or alive.
Brad Pitt sat down with Ann Curry for a revealing interview about his latest passion project, 12 Years a Slave, and his thoughts on growing older. Brad's new film, which will be released in select theaters on Friday, tells the true story of Solomon Northup, who was born a free man in New York but was kidnapped and forced into slavery in the South. The movie features a lot of disturbing imagery, and Brad isn't sure if he would let his children watch the film with him. "Maybe my eldest I would, right now," he said. "I'd rather for the others to get a little bit older and understand the dynamics of the world a little more." However, Brad added that he would "absolutely" show his entire family the film once they were a little older. Watch the full interview above.
The film, which features an American military mission into the depth of Nazi Germany, isn't set to debut until November 2014, so here's to many more pictures of Brad's haircut and Scott's six-pack!

Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf showed off their hottest, sweatiest stares on the set of Fury in London on Tuesday. The costars — and alleged camping buddies — filmed scenes near a trench for the World War II flick, which also stars Logan Lerman and Scott Eastwood. We first got a glimpse of Brad on the set earlier this month when he was learning how to drive the armored vehicle around the English countryside and again more recently as he debuted his short new 'do while reporting to the set with his brother, Doug. The costars also got together to film scenes in and around a giant tank on Monday.
The action film, which is slated for a November 2014 release, follows a crew of American soldiers as they embark on a battle mission in Nazi Germany. Brad and Shia both play soldiers, as does Scott, son of Clint Eastwood, who has been gaining lots of buzz for his ever-present six-pack abs. Scott showed off his buff bod on the set last week when he shared a shirtless photo on Instagram, joking, "Trying to out flex the tank. Not workin'."
