Well thank the celebrity Gods, finally, finally, there’s lots to talk about after a deathly quiet summer.
With Toronto Film Festival going into full swing as well as New York Fashion Week over the weekend, we’ve got a veritable showbiz smörgåsbord to feast on today so let’s get our bibs on and get snacking.
First up is everyone’s favourite stoner Brad Pitt – who’s been kicking off an early Oscar campaign over at TIFF in Canada with Twelve Years A Slave, which is his latest movie, but sounds more like a kinky sex game that he and Angelina Jolie would play once the nannies have tucked their six kids up in bed.
Have they bought in prohibition in Canada or something? – because for the first time in months, Brad actually managed to look sober and as if he was wearing clean clothes on the red carpet, and his carefully blow-dried and My Little Pony style tied up locks were a thing of beauty.
Toronto critics loved this film- which means one thing – we’ll see Brangelina at the Oscars and throughout awards season in 2014 and love them or loathe them, it wasn’t the same without them this year.
Below’s a five-minute featurette about the movie, and dayum, it looks good. Imagine, if Brad finally wins an Oscar come March 2nd 2014, aged fifty – right after Angie picks up her honorary humanitarian gong in November?
Not only would Brangeluniacs the world over spontaneously combust, Angelina’s left and right legs would do a victory jig of their own around the Dolby Theatre – while the rest of her sups champagne (with a dash of vodka from her purse, natch) at the table with Brad.
And if that wasn’t enough to whet your whistle, here’s Brad looking as if he dropped out of a 1990′s movie about drugged-out California surfers, having clearly smoked a doobie before sitting down to do some press - resulting in him anxiously stroking his thigh as he fumbled for strings of words that didn’t really go together.
