21 hours ago
As a high-profile celebrity, Brad Pitt's face is recognized around the world, but he now reveals that there are only a select few faces that he recognizes—and not by choice.

Olivia vs. Zach: Actress Calls Out Comedian
22 May 2013 1:00 PM, PDT
Olivia Munn is defending all the smart, pretty and funny people out there, claiming to Esquire magazine that 43-year-old funnyman Zach Galifianakis doesn't think person can be both humorous and good looking.
"I believe it was Galifianakis who was saying something like people who are attractive can't be funny, because funny comes from pain," the 32-year-old actress said in an interview for the men's magazine, that was paired with a bikini photo shoot.
"And it's interesting, because in my life, I moved around a lot, and I had a really abusive stepfather. ...And you move around a lot and you're constantly the new kid, because you're a military family. Oklahoma, Utah, Japan, different parts of Japan -- and humor and being self-deprecating and sarcastic was the thing that could break ice in every situation. And so it's a very antiquated idea to think that you can't be pretty and smart and funny."
