Brad Pitt thinks his marriage to Jennifer Anistonwas fake, it was “something that it wasn’t”.
The ‘Moneyball’ actor – who was married to former ‘Friends’ star Jennifer from 2000 to 2005 – thinks his life before his relationship with Angelina Jolie started to feel “pathetic” because he spent a lot of time smoking marijuana and “hiding”.
He said: “I spent the ’90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
[editors note: another confirmation that he smokes pot]
Did Jennifer smoke pot with you, Brad?
There’s more! He’s living a much happier life with Angelina and their six children – Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
He said: “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh man, I’m so happy to have her.”
While at the Toronto film festival, along with director Joel Schumacher promoting the film about a home invasion, Nicolas Cage said that he has actually lived through the nightmare in real life.
“It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed,” he told reporters on Wednesday.
“I know it sounds funny … but it was horrifying.”
A Fudgesicle is a frozen, ice cream-like snack.
Cage said the ordeal ended after he talked the man out of the house and police arrived. He did not press charges, as the man had mental problems, but Cage, who now lives in Nassau, Bahamas, said he could not stay in the house after that.
In “Trespass,” which is scheduled for release in October, thieves con their way into the opulent mansion where Cage’s character lives with his unhappy wife (played by Nicole Kidman) and their daughter.
The family is held for ransom and the movie follows a path of twists and turns as negotiations with the intruders ensue.
Schumacher, who earlier cast Cage in his film “8MM,” and Kidman in “Batman Forever,” said “Trespass” is also about extremes between the rich and the poor in America.
“It’s a class warfare movie too, about the haves and the have-nots.”
The diamond-dealing Cage character and one of the invaders are two versions of the same man, in that they have both “overreached to have their share of what used to be called ‘The American Dream,’” Schumacher said.
Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz have split again — and sources say this time it looks like it’s over for good. Sources say the couple broke up after the Yankee slugger looked for ways to wiggle out of the romance.
“For weeks he’s been trying to get out of the relationship,” said one source, adding that Rodriguez has been telling people it’s over — “But she has been in denial about it.”
Diaz and Rodriguez had been together on and off since 2009, and they spent quality time, usually with workouts at the gym, in New York and Miami.
The Yankee slugger is currently in Seattle with his team, and Diaz, 38, has been shooting What to Expect When You’re Expecting in Atlanta. They were last together over Labor Day weekend in New York and, prior to that, spotted celebrating his birthday in Miami Beach.
Diaz also spent time with A-Rod’s children from his marriage to ex-wife, Cynthia.
Hours after the White House party crasher’s husband made a public plea for help in finding his wife, whom he believed had been kidnapped Tuesday, Virginia’s Warren County Sheriff’s Office released a statement saying authorities had spoken with Michaele Salahi and she was “fine” and “where she wanted to be.”
According to the statement, Tareq Salahi contacted authorities at 11:55 p.m. Tuesday after Michaele Salahi called him from an Oregon area code and proceeded to stay out of touch for six hours.
“Deputy Mike Glavis subsequently spoke with Mrs. Salahi by telephone a few moments later,” the sheriff’s office said in its statement. “Deputy Glavis was able to identify Mrs. Salahi by having previous conversations with her in the past. She seemed calm, was engaged in conversation, and assured the deputy that she had left the residence with a good friend and was where she wanted to be. Mrs. Salahi advised that she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was. Mrs. Salahi advised Deputy Glavis that she was very sorry that the Sheriff’s Office had to be involved, but she did not want to be home right now.”
The sheriff’s office said it’s working with the FBI “in an attempt to make additional contact with Mrs. Salahi to assure her well being.” An official told ABCNews.com that no missing person’s report has been filed and there’s “no reason to believe Mrs. Salahi is any danger.”
Michaele Salahi is instead in Memphis with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, Schon’s spokesperson confirmed.
Tareq Salahi made an impassioned plea via TMZ.com today, saying he believed his wife “may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay.” He launched campaigns to find her on Facebook and Twitter and retweeted a follower saying “Michaele Salahi was last seen wearing a Baby Blue T-shirt dress with a silver glitter dolphin on the front and black thongs,” presumably referring to her sandals.
News anchors are supposed to read the news, not make it. But we’re more than happy to make an exception for two reporters from Philadelphia’s Fox 29 morning show, “Good Day.”
After interviewing Kim and Kourtney Kardashian on the air, Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones thought the cameras had stopped rolling. They hadn’t.
As soon as they said their goodbyes to the Kardashians, who were promoting a line of clothes, the anchors began making fun of the two sisters. “Can they still hear us?” asks Jerrick. He then proceeds to mock the reality stars for their high-pitched voices and affinity for shoulder pads.
Jones half-heartedly attempts to defend the sisters, saying, “I think they’re stunning.” But even she can’t keep a straight face as her cohort continues speaking in a nasally Kardashian-like voice, a bit like a Smurf who had inhaled helium.
Yes, yes, we know. Making fun of others is wrong. Except when it’s the Kardashians. Then it’s hilarious. Enjoy!
Madonna must definitely be going through lifes changes because fresh up from her being a bitch to a fan after he gave her flowers that she hated she has now told volunteers not to make eye contact with her.
Madonna was at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday to promote her new film, W.E., and she was all smiles during a press conference but behind the scenes was a differewnt story.
The Globe and Mail report that Madonna had asked eight volunteers who were working at the festival to turn around and face a wall so that they could not look at the Material Girl as she made her way to the press conference.
One of the volunteers says they they all “dutifully stood with their backs to her as she passed” after Madonna requested they not look at her.
This just takes her self-importance to a whole other level, I can’t believe the people even followed her orders.
“Real Housewives of D.C.” star Tareq Salahi believes his wife Michaele Salahi was abducted in Virginia yesterday, but he’s afraid the cops aren’t taking the situation seriously, TMZ has learned.
TMZ just spoke with Tareq, who tells us he last saw Michaele at their home around 11 a.m. EST yesterday, right before he left to go to their winery. Tareq says Michaele told him she was going to get her hair done, but she never went to the appointment. She’s been missing ever since.
Tareq claims he got a phone call from Michaele late last night from an unfamiliar Oregon cell phone number and she told him she was going to her mother’s house, located minutes away from the Salahi home.
Tareq says he was suspicious,so he called Michaele’s mother, who told him she hadn’t spoken with Michaele and was unaware of her plans. That’s when Tareq — fearing Michaele had been abducted — called the Warren County Sheriff’s Dept. for help.
But Tareq claims deputies told him she had already called them, informing them she was OK and just dealing with some “family issues.”
Tareq tells TMZ that he believes Michaele had been forced to make the phone calls by her abductor and believes she is in very real danger, especially because the Salahis have received death threats in the past.
Tareq says he’s considering going to other law enforcement for help because he feels the Warren County Sheriffs are not taking proper action.
Tareq has issued a statement saying, “We are reaching to the public pleading [sic] desperately for your help.”
He continues, “It is our belief as of last night, that Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay.”
“We are asking the public to please be on the look out for her, and if found please contact the authorities and please approach her and contact the authorities to intervene and that she may be forced to say she is okay, when in fact she is not and being held under possible abduction.”
A rep for the WCSD tells TMZ cops are not releasing any info about the situation at this time.
It seems like Scarlett Johansson is the latest celebrity to have fallen victim to the hacking scandal in Hollywood after nude photos leaked online earlier on today.
It was rumored back in March that Scarlett’s iPhone had been hacked by the mystery hacker, who is also believed to have hacked the likes of Jessica Alba and Vanessa Hudgens, back in March so these photos shouldn’t come as a surprise.
A rep for the actress hasn’t confirmed or denied wether or not these photos are real or fake but they look pretty real to me, Scarlett is said to be furious that the photos have appeared on the internet.
TMZ are reporting that the FBI are going to be contacted regarding these latest photos because they are already involved in the hacking scandal that has been going on for the past few months. Nobody knows who the hacker is yet.
Take a look at the photos and judge for yourself if you think they are real or fake, I myself think they are real.
It looks like all the stress is getting to Kat Von D because she is starting to lose her hair which is resulting in her wearing wigs to hide it. This is of course if sources who speak to Radar Online are to be believed.
A source says that the 29-year-old is so stressed out from breaking-up and getting back together with Jesse James that she has started to lose her hair.
“Kat totally has bald spots and it’s from stress, it’s worse than anyone her age should have.” Says the source, who then goes on to say “the combination of all the treatments she does to her hair and stress have finally caught up with her. She’s started ordering wigs along with the hair pieces and extensions she already uses.”
James isn’t the only stress in Kat’s life because apparently TLC are ready to cancel her show, LA Ink, after it finishes up this season.
“The network is proud of what the series has accomplished in its four seasons, following Kat Von D’s journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles,” says an insider.
The source also says that losing her hair is also causing her to stress out and this is of course “making it worse!”
Note to self: do not call up Terrence Howard‘s wife, Michelle Ghent, because he will leave you a voicemail threatening to kill you. This is exactly what he did to some woman who left a message on his wife’s phone.
A source says that the woman got drunk one night and got Terrence’s phone number from another friend so she decided to prank call him and express her love for him.
“But apparently the call was made to his wife’s phone, not his. I’m assuming she got the voicemail of my friend gushing about Terrence and questioned him about it,” says a source.
This didn’t settle well with the actor because he called the number back and left a lovely voicemail saying “Nigga, you been calling my wife… If you call my wife again I’m going to come to your house and I’m going to cut your fucking throat. Understand that. I’m gonna tell you this one time. You call my wife again, I’m going to kill you.”
Terrence must have had a change of heart though because just last week he decided to call up the person again and left another voicemail, but this time he was apologizing.
“I’m so sorry for calling you and speaking that way. I thought you were somebody that’s been harassing my wife. Please forgive me. My wife told me that she was receiving obscene text from you and that she was being harassed. Therefore I responded with the protective nature that a husband has for his wife. Forgive me for the anger, but as you are watching over your girlfriend, I too am devoted to my love.” He said in the second voicemail.
I guess Terrence and Michelle are trying to get back together if he is getting all protective of her because she filed for divorce back in February.
Celebrities often speak before they think and this tends to happen in the Hip-Hop world quite a bit which results in them getting bad publicity. So how do they salvage their public image? By swallowing their pride and uttering the words “I apologize.” Complex have come up with a list of the most humiliating hip-hop apologies and here is the top 10:
10. Public Enemy Apologizes For Professor Griff’s Anti-Semitic Comments
In an interview with The Washington Times, Public Enemy member Professor Griff said that Jews are responsible for “the majority of wickedness that goes on across the globe.” He continued, “The Jews are wicked. And we can prove this.”
Griff was subsequently fired from Public Enemy. In the wake of his dismissal Chuck D. issued a statement on behalf of the group saying, “Offensive remarks by Professor Griff are not in line with Public Enemy’s program. We are not anti-Jewish. We are not anti-anyone. We are pro-black, pro-black culture, and pro-human race.”

Responding to Jay-Z coming out of retirement in a December 2006 interview with Complex, Lil Wayne addressed Jay-Z saying, “It’s not your house anymore, and I’m better than you.”
But Wayne soon backtracked a February 2007 interview with XXL: ““I wanna apologize to Jay and his family and friends, because I was asked that question and they put it in there like I was just feeling like, ‘Oh, you know what, nigga? I’m better than Jay!’ They came at me like, ‘So you say you’re the best. Can you say that you’re better than everybody? Would you say you’re better than Jay?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, nigga, I’m better than everybody!’ But I’d like to throw that apology out there ’cause of whatever trouble I caused, I ain’t want that to happen.”
08. Pimp C Apologizes To Atlanta
In a July 2007 Ozone interview, Pimp C made a stunning suggestion: “Atlanta is not the South, Goddamn it…Atlanta is on East coast time. You niggas ain’t in the South. And all you old bitch-ass niggas talking about “crunk,” you niggas ain’t do nothing but take Three 6 Mafia’s style and renamed it.”
The very nexy month, Pimp C pumped his brakes and issued an apology: “To all my Atlanta fans & friends, I want to say I apologize for my statement in Ozone magazine about Atlanta not being the South!! That was a bull**** statement!! Atlanta is and has always been the dirty mthfkn South!!!!! Chuuch!! But the rest of what I said, about them p***y a** niggaz is and will always be the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
07. Ice-T Apologizes To Soulja Boy, Sort Of
After saying that Soulja Boy single-handedly killed hip-hop and telling him to eat a dick, Ice-T seemed to have a change of heart. The part time pimp and rap-rock rebel turned actor made a semi-apologetic video directed at the young rapper and web entrepreneur.
In the video he says, “I apologize Soulja Boy for telling you to eat a d*ck. That was just in anger…Because truthfully, a brother of my caliber shouldn’t be talking down on a youngster of your age. T continued, “But as far as your music goes.. it’s garbage!…There are kids that go in the studio and really try to rap. That really sit down with a pen and write stuff…I’m talking about you’re garbage! We got to get rid of that, man. Hip-hop has to last and it ain’t gonna last with you doing that Supaman bullshit.”
06. T-Pain Apologizes To Jay-Z
In June 2009, T-Pain embraced Jay-Z’s controversial single “D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-tune)” by joining him on stage during the rapper’s Hot 97’s Summer Jam performance. When Jay-Z was asked about the gesture afterwards, he said, “It was awkward, but it was cool…He didn’t mean any harm.”
But a few months later in Las Vegas, T-Pain lashed out at Jay-Z saying, “Jay-Z is 59 years old. I don’t think he has the right to say what’s good and what’s not. I think if anything is dead, it should be him.” Later that month Pain released a song called “More Careful,” in which he raps, “Some days I wish that I ain’t never say shit/ And Diddy said ain’t no excuse for what I did/ But I felt like he was knocking the same shit that feeds my kids.” The third verse ends with him saying, “My bad.”
05. The Notorious B.I.G. Apologized To Kandi of Xscape & Patti LaBelle For “Dreams”
On his X-rated classic “Dreams,” Biggie indulges some freaky R&B fantasies, and throws a few shots in the direction of R&B group Xscape saying, “I’ll fuck Rupaul before I fuck them ugly-ass Xscape bitches.” Patti LaBelle was also mentioned in the song—“I’d probably go to jail for fucking Patti LaBelle.” Biggie rapped. The legendary singer wasted no time calling him up to call him out for his lyrics: “He apologized. I just said ‘Well you know brother, you really can’t see me that way.’”
Years later, Xscape singer Kandi revealed that on the night of his death, Biggie extended an apology to Xscape during a Soul Train Awards after party in Los Angeles. Kandi said she regrets not accepting his apology.
04. Puff Daddy Apologizes To Steve Stoute For Beatdown
Steve Stoute, Nas’ manager at the time, and Diddy, then known as Puff Daddy, started feuding when Diddy insisted that his crucifixion scene in Nas’ “Hate Me Now” be cut out before the video aired on MTV. Steve Stoute refused to re-edit the clip and on the night of April 15th, 1999, Diddy and two others attacked Stoute in his New York office, hitting him with a champagne bottle. The assault allegedly left him with a broken arm and jaw.
Stoute sued Diddy, but the matter was resolved out of court. In May, Diddy apologized in USA Today saying, “I made a major mistake, and I have to handle the consequences for it. I have to admit I was totally wrong. I have to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
03. Eminem Apologizes For Making Racist Song As A Teenager
In November of 2003, The Source magazine dug up an old Eminem freestyle on which Marshall Mathers raps “Blacks and whites they sometimes mix/But black girls only want your money ’cause they’re dumb chicks/Don’t date a black girl/If you do it once you won’t do it twice/Black girls are dumb, and white girls are good chicks.”
Eminem addressed the track later that month saying, “The tape … was something I made out of anger, stupidity and frustration when I was a teenager. I’d just broken up with my girlfriend, who was African American, and I reacted like the angry, stupid kid I was. I hope people will take it for the foolishness that it was, not for what somebody is trying to make it into today.”
Two weeks later he offer another mea culpa: “While I think common sense tells you not to judge a man by what he may have said when he was a boy, I will say it straight up: I am sorry I said those things when I was 16.”
In 2009, Asher Roth suffered similar backlash when his attempt at twitter humor went horribly wrong. Making a reference to Don Imus’ infamous diss to the Rutgers women’s basketball team, the rapper said, “Been a day of rest and relaxation — sorry twitter hanging with nappy headed hoes.” Roth apologized to “any man, woman, or child” he may have offended, calling his comments “immature.”
02. Kanye West Apologizes To Taylor Swift
In a moment that will forever live in award-show infamy, a slightly tipsy Yeezy interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance of the Best Female Video award at MTV’s Video Music Awards. “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’ma let you finish,” he remarked, “but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. Of all time!”
Shortly after being escorted from the building he took to his blog to offer an all-caps apology. In the blog post Kanye wrote, “I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom,” he wrote. “I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented!”
Later, on the “Power (Remix)” Yeezy rhymed, “Jay’s my big brother, and B’s my little sister/And excuse me all, but you can’t see my little sister,” which seemed to rescind his previous apology.
01. Jay-Z’s Mom Makes Him Apologize For “Superugly”/strong>
In the midst of his epic battle with Nas, Jay dropped the song “Super Ugly” In the song Jay claimed to be smashing Nas’s baby mother, whom he identified by name. Right after the tune premiered on Hot 97 in December of 2001, Jay-Z received a call from his mother letting him know, “That went too far.”
Jay returned to the station the day after and said, “I apologize. I felt like I didn’t think about women’s feelings or [Nas' former girlfriend's] feelings, or even my mom. It was really like, ‘Let me meet your level of disrespect with this level of disrespect.’”
There really is nothing worse than swallowing your pride and saying sorry. To see the full list head on over to Complex.
It’s a sad day in Hollywood today because Andy Whitfield, who starred in ‘Spartacus: Blood and Sand’, has passed away at the young age of 39.
The actor, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma 18 months ago, passed away on Sunday night in Sydney, Australia, his manager tells the AP.
Whitfield was born in Wales but moved to Australia in 1999 and had a few minor roles before being cast on the hit Starz show.
His wife, Vashti, released a statement saying “on a beautiful sunny Sydney spring morning, surrounded by his family, in the arms of his loving wife, our beautiful young warrior Andy Whitfield lost his 18 month battle with lymphoma cancer, he passed peacefully surrounded by love. Thank you to all his fans whose love and support have help carry him to this point. He will be remembered as the inspiring, courageous and gentle man, father and husband he was.”
Andy announced back in September 2010 that he would not be starring in the second season of ‘Spartacus’ because of his condition so the network decided to do a 6-part prequel without the actor before. When his condition worsened they replaced him with Liam McIntyre.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield, we were fortunate to have worked with Andy in `Spartacus’ and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life.” Said Chris Albrecht, the President and CEO for Starz.
