50 hot guys – 2014

Posted October 31, 2014

The movie list is clearly late this year. I’ll have to think of something wildly interesting to post between this list and the tv list or my blog will have become just hot guys and then more hot guys. One of the great things about the movie list is that it offers variety. Except for pilots and new series, the tv list is a lot of the same guys a lot of the time. But sometimes even our favorites aren’t in a movie every year so the list gets mixed up. Kel let me pick all the pictures this year […]

Brad Pitt: A Life So Large

Posted May 20, 2013

Brad Pitt became a movie star before he had been able to make himself an actor. Brad Pitt won’t remember you. If you’ve met him, he’ll have no idea who you are when he meets you again. Even if you’ve had what he calls “a real conversation,” your face will start fading from his memory as soon as you walk away. He’ll try to hold on to its outlines, but your features will suffer an inexorable erasure, and the next time he sees you you’ll be brand-new to him. He used to try tricking those he’d forgotten into thinking he […]

This is something of an ongoing conversation from Searching for Stardom but with a slightly different twist.

But the end of the Twilight franchise and Robert Pattison’s successive film choices have prompted considerable discussion on the career paths of young actors.

Well, now we’ve gone and done it. Not content to have a list of the hot guys on tv every year, Kel and I have decided an annual movie list is in order.

Moneyball

Moneyball

Moneyball is not your typical sports-inspirational movie. And I guess that’s to be expected from Aaron Sorkin. Though, I can’t remember if Sorkin wrote the draft that Sony abandoned or if he

Brad Pitt: Honest, Uncensored and Funny

Posted September 16, 2011

Pitt talks about dreams, self-doubt, and the serious work it took to become an actor he could be proud of “Once I had a meeting with Quentin Tarantino where we went through five bottles of wine,” Brad Pitt says, deep into a conversation that will span three and a half hours at a London photo studio. Pitt smiles, then makes a playful stab at a guilt trip: “My kids are just waiting for me at home. I’m their father. They’re wondering, ‘When’s Daddy coming home?”‘ I tell Pitt that his kids will be fine — they’ve got a strong mother […]

I read this article in the Hollywood Reporter about the new Avatar trailer. It was just enough to push me into writing a blog I’ve thought about for some time (yes, I know it’s 3

Brad Pitt Q&A

Posted October 1, 2007

…for the past few weeks Prague has been home to Pitt and Jolie, whose presence has made this capital the red-hot center of the celebrity universe. The couple’s effect on the city is not lost on Pitt, who, playing the role of Mr. Mom while Angelina films the thriller Wanted, faces the same paparazzi assault he would in L.A. as he drops Maddox off at the Élysée school and shepherds his other three kids around. (In case, like Brad Pitt, you’re not a reader of US Weekly, the roll call is: Maddox Chivan, 6; Pax Thien, 3; Zahara Marley, 2; […]

Mr. Pitt & His Magical Mattress

Posted September 1, 2006

On a hot summer afternoon, the most glamorous birth father in America sits in a diner booth and tries to make sense of the world. A thunderous revving noise ruptures the quiet of the Spitfire Grill on a lazy afternoon in Santa Monica, California, accompanied by a series of subsonic reverberations that tinkle the ice cubes of my overfull water glass, breaking the surface tension, sending droplets down the side. Abruptly, all is still. The waitress resumes filling the saltshakers. Steely Dan harmonizes on the sound system overhead. The door opens, and he walks in–his helmet beneath his arm–like Achilles […]
