Jimmy Kimmel makes 'Fury' infinitely cuter by adding Furbys

Fury is a pretty serious movie, but Jimmy Kimmel managed to make it way less serious with the addition of a few little critters from the late ’90s.

Brad Pitt has a 'breakdance conversation' with Jimmy Fallon on 'Tonight Show'

It’s a little less conversation, a little more action in a new video from The Tonight Show that features Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon engaging in a “Breakdance Conversation”—meaning they breakdance in response to one another as subtitles tell us what words their moves translate to.

For example: Pitt, who currently stars in World War II film Fury, back-flips off a wall at one point, which apparently means, “If you don’t see [my movie], I’ll be furious.” Breakdancing Brad’s got jokes! READ FULL STORY

Brad Pitt on red carpet attacker: 'The nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch'

Last Wednesday, Brad Pitt was supporting his partner Angelina Jolie at the premiere of Maleficent when notorious celebrity harasser Vitalii Sediuk struck. And as it turns out, Sediuk got touchier with the movie star than we originally thought.

In an exclusive statement to PeoplePitt details the attack: “I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head — not too hard — but enough to get his attention, because he did let go.”

Brad Pitt attacked by notorious 'prankster' at 'Maleficent' premiere

It seems we all need another rundown of what a “prank” is, because notorious “prankster” (i.e. celebrity harasser) Vitalii Sediuk is at it again — this time attacking Brad Pitt at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent.

A brief catch up: Sediuk is a reporter for Ukraine TV channel 1+1 who’s had several run-ins with big-name stars before. He’s the same guy who attempted to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet “as a joke,” hugged Bradley Cooper’s crotch at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and attempted to get underneath America Ferrera’s skirt at Cannes a few weeks ago, among other incidents. (He’s also responsible for giving Madonna horrible, disgusting, loathesome hydrangeas that one time.) READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence's best friend wrote a behind-the-scenes account of Oscars night

It’s a well-known fact that everyone wants to be Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend. Who among us hasn’t imagined scarfing down pizza with the American Hustle star while laughing at fart jokes and oh, yeah — hanging with Bradley Cooper like it ain’t no thang? But we never knew what it was actually like to be J. Law’s best friend — until now.

Lawrence’s real-life BFF, model Laura Simpson, was the actress’ date to last week’s Oscars, which led Simpson to write a pretty epic MySpace post about the night. Truly, it may go down as the greatest behind-the-scenes report from the Academy Awards ever. Why? Because Simpson is understandably starstruck and recounts Hollywood’s most exclusive evening through a real-person lens. So while she got to rub shoulders with Brad Pitt, guess what? Some parts of attending the Oscars aren’t nearly as glamorous as they seem. READ FULL STORY

Hidden Gems of the 2014 Pizza Oscars

These Oscars were unusually lacking in memorable reaction shots — perhaps Amy Adams’ quick iPhone-check sums up the whole show?

Below, my quick play-by-play of the Oscars’ (arguably) least significant details: READ FULL STORY

Today, Brad Pitt turns 50, which means the blond-haired, blue-eyed, two-time People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive has been shining on screen for most of his (and our) lives. To honor Pitt’s work, we’ve rounded up a quick trip down memory lane.

We’ve cut together Pitt’s on-screen roles, from Dallas to 12 Years a Slave. Watch the actor (and his hair) evolve in the video below:

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: 'British' is the universe's only accent

Don’t get your knickers in a twist, mate! I know that technically, there is no such thing as a “British” accent. But what else would you call the English-ish dialect that’s long been used as a catchall in American-made movies and TV shows set anywhere ancient, foreign, and/or magical?

The fantasy thing, at least, makes a certain amount of sense. That genre has its roots in stories like J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga and C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia; naturally, those authors’ homelands (and, therefore, their way of speaking) are associated with the stories their work has inspired.

Perhaps more importantly, made-up fantasy lands tend to have cultures and customs based at least partially on those of medieval Europe — and even if people in medieval Europe didn’t sound remotely like denizens of present-day London, using modern British inflections makes fantasy characters’ speech sound more authentic to most people’s untrained ears. Hearing knights and princesses speak like they were brought up in Cincinnati just seems wrong — possibly also because the United States has existed for only 237 years.

Brad Pitt would 'absolutely' show '12 Years a Slave' to his kids -- VIDEO

Though he appears for barely eight minutes in ’12 Years a Slave,’ the story of a born-free black man sold into slavery affected Brad Pitt so strongly that he calls the film his reason for acting and would even show the film, which has attracted attention for its harrowing scenes, to adopted son Maddox.

“It’s why I got into film in the first place,” said Pitt, who plays abolitionist Samuel Bass in the Steve McQueen-directed film, to NBC‘s Ann Curry.

“It’s one of those few films that cuts to the base of our humanity,” he continued. “And it was not ’til I saw Solomon Northup’s story that I fully, fully grasped the utter horror of losing your freedom, or denying another one their freedom, taking their freedom, splitting their family apart. It’s abhorrent.” READ FULL STORY
