Quote Of The Day: Wedding Bells For Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie?

While out on the promotional trail, doing interviews regarding his Oscar-nominated work, Brad Pitt surprised reporters by admitting that he and Angelina Jolie may tie the knot sooner rather than later.

“We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids.  We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out.”

But Brad wouldn’t share any engagement plans:

“I’m not going to go any further.  [But] it means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”

Do you think they’ll do it up big (Kardashian-style)?  Or go super-low-key and try to pull it off completely under the radar?  I see them having a ceremony with just the kids in some way-off locale.

Brad Pitt Opens Up About Depression And Quitting Marijuana

Oscar nominee Brad Pitt opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about his past struggle with depression and kicking his marijuana habit – for the most part.  The ‘Moneyball‘ star shared:

“I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s: I was hiding out from the celebrity thing; I was smoking way too much dope; I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut; and I really got irritated with myself. I got to: ‘What’s the point? I know better than this.’

“I used to deal with depression, but I don’t now, not this decade — maybe last decade. But that’s also figuring out who you are. I see it as a great education, as one of the seasons or a semester: ‘This semester I was majoring in depression.’ I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep — the same routine: Couldn’t wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, ‘This is a waste.’”

Brad said after taking a few trips and getting a glimpse at extreme poverty, he decided to give up smoking pot and do something:

“I just quit. I stopped grass then — I mean, pretty much — and decided to get off the couch.  I sought out Bono and sat down with him a few times and got involved in some of the stuff he was doing. But it all started before that. It started with private acts,”

He says that it contributed to the attraction he had to Angelina Jolie:

“That may have been one of the things that brought us together.  Certainly, I’ve met very few people more dedicated than she is. She is always studying issues, daily. She has such compassion for the people she works with.”

Brad is now at peace with his past and his struggles:

“This idea of perpetual happiness is crazy and overrated, because those dark moments fuel you for the next bright moments; each one helps you appreciate the other.  We are all searching for meaning in our lives, love and betterment for ourselves and those around us.”

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!
