Brad Pitt Explains How He & Angelina Jolie Relax During The Awards Season

With the Golden Globes having just occurred and the 2012 Academy Awards  nominees announced, award season is in full swing! How do celebrities relax? For Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, it’s about unwinding with the kids.

“A lot of it, for us, is family. Just breaking away and getting to take the kids to Benihana’s or something.”

And if they’re just hanging out at home?

iCarly,” says Pitt. “iCarly is big in our house. It is. I know every episode.”

Who would’ve thought two of the biggest movie stars on the planet are keeping up with ‘iCarly’? LOL

Brad Pitt Has An Epic Prank Up His Sleeve For Pal George Clooney

The pranks that Brad Pitt and George Clooney pull on each other and their friends are the stuff of legend.  Brad admitted at the Producer’s Guild Awards that he has something up his sleeve for pal George, but hasn’t been ready to unleash it just yet:

“I’ve been sitting on one that is so brutal, and so ruthless. I’ve had it in my pocket for about five years, I think.”

“We are like two nuclear superpowers at this point. We shouldn’t launch because we will annihilate each other.”

When asked if he’d pull the prank on Clooney at the Oscars, the dad of six replied:

“No, no. We’re gonna handle this one like gentlemen and we’ll get dirty off camera.”

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Bring Glamour To The Producers Guild Awards

Talk about getting a high profile celebrity couple on the guest list! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attended the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards last night.

How do you like Angelina’s dress here? She’s been very demure in her gown choices lately (although the thigh-high split is familiar), so it’s nice to see her choose something a little more glamorous. The lace overlay is big this season, isn’t it? I’m a fan!

Hollywood’s A-List Shines At The 2012 Golden Globes

It was a night of glitz, glamour, and good old-fashioned Hollywood fun at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan 15. From the fab frocks donned by style stars Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie and Rooney Mara, to George Clooney and Brad Pitt who both rocked slick suits, among many, MANY others!

With so many fashion high-notes hit, I’m having a tough time deciding which star deserves the title of last night’s best dressed. Browse through the super-sized gallery below and tell us your pick!

The Stars Shine On The Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet

Awards season is in full bloom and last night’s People’s Choice Awards have been followed up by tonight’s Critics Choice Awards held at The Palladium in Los Angeles.

The Critics Choice Awards definitely attracted Hollywood’s A List and they all walked the red carpet looking amazing.

George Clooney brought lady love Stacey Keibler who looked fab in her long white gown and George’s buddy Brad Pitt used his cane to manoeuvre the carpet while looking very handsome in his dark suit and white shirt and tie.

I think it might be Charlize Theron though who looks the best!  Charlize is always gorgeous but this black dress is stunning.  Kirsten Dunst also wows in a little black dress.

Tilda Swinton, Emma Stone, Michelle Williams, Evan Rachel Wood and young rising stars Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning also walked the red carpet.

Who had your favourite look of the night?

Brangelina Attends A Special Screening Of ‘In The Land Of Blood And Honey’

After they stepped out for the New York Film Critics’ Awards on Jan. 8, Brangelina made an appearance at the Holocaust Museum for a special screening of Angelina Jolie’s new flick, In the Land of Blood and Honey.

Bundled up in a long gray coat, Angie struck a few poses solo before she was joined by beau Brad Pitt. The Moneyball star and his leading lady gave a few grins to the paps as they made their way inside.

While their ensembles totally scream “city chic,” with the Golden Globe Awards just days away, I can’t wait to see what glam frock Angelina will rock, as well as the slick suit that Brad will sport!
