Brad's Quest For A Quiet Place & A Bigger Bed

Brad's Quest For A Quiet Place & A Bigger Bed

Brad Pitt is coming to the big screen this weekend in one of this fall's westerns, The Assassination of Jesse James by That Coward Robert Ford (mouthful much?), a role which earned him the Best Actor Award at this year's Venice Film Festival. Naturally with Brad being who he is, when he sat down for interviews to promote the movie, reporters wanted to talk about the frontier he's forging in his personal life instead of the movie. Interestingly, Brad sees parallels between what he goes through every day and his character on screen, who is stalked and killed by a member of his posse. Here's more:

  • "I understand the essence of paranoia. I understand being hunted, to some degree. I understand a bounty on my head. But the movie is about so much more. The real tragedy is that there was a chance he could have gotten past this moment. He's wrestling with himself and lost that battle."
  • "It's impossible for us. We're run out of every major city. There's just too many paparazzi. There's always cameras in the kids' faces, yelling their names. Angie gets out of the car, and they take the camera down to the curb and shoot up (her skirt). It's unbelievable." That's why "there's a constant negotiation in how to survive and how to maintain a family life."

  • On that constant question of more kids: "We're not done. They say, any plans for a fifth? And I say, `And a sixth, and a seventh, and an eighth, and a ninth.' That's my answer. ...We also made a 9-foot-wide bed" that can fit him, Jolie and all four children, Pitt said. "Just big enough. One more and we'll have to go to 11 feet."

While it's scary to hear that Brad feels like he knows what it is like to be "hunted" it doesn't sound like that gets in the way of the happiness he shares when he finds peace with his family. As for that last bit, remember those precious pictures of Maddox in bed with Angelina? Just imagine the whole adorable Jollie-Pitt clan all cozied up together.

How i would LOVE to see Bradley PittY and Mangie move premanently to Namibia, after all, they brought it to the attention of the world with the birth of Shi there, so why not go there and support that country?...Help out it's poor....adopt all it's needing children? Would make a lot of Americans so very happy to be done with this bunch of narcisstic, psycho-babbling, S & M, druggie Ho's. PittY has lost his appeal since he's hook-up with this vial of blood wearing, medial photograpned tongue kissing brother, anything in the bedroom acording to Colin ...ewwwww...just make this mess go away....puleeze

I think no matter what they do, they can't win. If he tries to explain some of the reasons they do what they do, he gets shot down for sounding like he's complaining. For everyone who moans about her wearing modest long skirts - there's your answer. Having the paps around is part of being a celebrity but I'm sure with Brad and Angie it goes to a completely different level that none of us can even comprehend. On a side note, I do wish he'd get rid of the hat but I've about decided that it's part of his "negotiation to survive" - as long as he keeps wearing that ugly hat his pictures look the same and perhaps the paps get somewhat bored.

As far as love husband comes home for lunch a lot...and we also take our showers together and when the kids are watching TV is the time we have our little "get togethers".. Im sure that's more info than you guys

I slept in my parent's bed...I had really young parents, both were 18 and kids themselves. I finally moved to my own bed when I was about All my kids shared me and my husband's bed. My oldest did until she was 4 and said she was gonna "give it a try" sleeping by herself...she took to her own bed right away..she is the independent one.. my son is 12 and he finally moved out the bed when he was 6..although he transitioned by falling asleep on the couch alot...and my youngest 2 ages 5 and 6 sleep about half the time with us. I have a close friend who disagrees and I remember her child screaming at night when she put him in his bed and shut the door...this went on for YEARS. I never could understand how she thought letting him cry it out was better than just letting him sleep with her..I guess different strokes for different folks..however I love our arrangement. I Love waking up to my kids smiling up at me in the morning. :)

Maybe if Brangelina lay low a little bit and stop giving interviews and flitting around the world, people might leave them alone. They thrive on the attention or they would just shut up and move to Missouri or something.

Oh and notice how brad carries little samuel on his shoulders (when the bump into Alfred and is wife at the carnival), he carries his real life kiddies like that now. Something I noticed while I was watching it the other night.

Awww.... I ♥ Brad. But it really sucks about him being hunted. It's totally true and really fcuked up. I know I like to look at the pictures too (who wouldn't), but I also wish they'd be able to have some peace.

Oh yeah that was sad, that whole movie was kind of a downer. And I'm glad mine's did too, if I have kids I'd let them do the same thing.

I always hate the part where Samuel dies :cry: I agree Fashionstar!!! But I guess some parents' didn't let their kids sleep in their beds...I'm happy mine did!!!

And I haven't seen Legends of the fall in awhile but Brad was so so hot in that, it was a sad movie though. And yes he's getting old and Angie's gotten skinny but they're both still hot and sexy.

Tiabia is dead on, and though i disagree truvoice that part about brad's shining dome was funny. And Joanna if they want their kids to sleep in their bed what's the harm, Maddox is 6 not 16, I know I still wanted to climb into bed when I was 6 sometimes.

The more they talk, the less I like them. They bring on all the publicity, selling pictures and then complain about it. There is nothing classy about them and they talk way too much. If they would keep their private life private, it wouldn't be fair game. They even talk about their sex life. I think kids should have their own beds, (everyone sleeps better). Maddox is six years old.
