11 hours ago
Brad Pitt admits that he spent "years f***ing off," but at 49, he tells Esquire magazine that he made a "conscious change" to turn his life around.
"I'd get so far and then want to do something else. I mean, I'm two credits short of graduating college. Two credits. All I had to do was write a paper. What kind of guy is that?" the A-list actor recalls of his old life. "For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing."
That's when things changed for Pitt. "It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany - a decision not to squander my opportunities," the World War Z star confesses. "It was a feeling »

The series, set in the 1950's, follows Jenny Lee (elegantly played by Jessica Raine) as she embarks upon a new career as a midwife while living and working in East London.

ETonline caught up with Raine to talk about the show's massive popularity, the pressure of quality control and why, at the end of the day, all you need is love.

'Suits' Stars Preview Powerful New Season
15 hours ago
With a title like War, you knew the Suits season two finale was going to mean season three would be largely dedicated to picking up the pieces -- and while that is true across the board, according to all of the actors, nowhere is the decimation more evident than in Harvey's relationship with Mike.
"Their loyalty has been completely destroyed," Gabriel Macht told me at USA's Upfront event in NYC. "And in the first episode, Harvey lets Mike go. He's done with him. Yes, Mike asks for forgiveness but Harvey doesn't want any of it. He doesn't want the drama, he doesn't want to trust in him anymore."
And if you think that will be resolved in a single episode, then you don't know Suits! "There's actually an episode where Louis asks for Mike and Harvey lets that courtship begin," Gabriel reveals! "Harvey gives him »

Get Ready To Play 'House' With These Bff's Again
18 hours ago
Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair's sweet, silly and totally unique Best Friends Forever was easily one of my favorite new shows in 2012. Naturally it was canceled by NBC after six episodes, leaving me praying another network would be smart enough to tap these funny ladies to shepherd another comedy, immediately.
Thankfully USA stepped in and greenlit their new pilot, Playing House, which sees the real life Bff's once again playing Bff's -- but this time there's a baby in the mix. I caught up with Jessica St. Clair at USA's Upfront Event in NYC to talk/gush about the dearly departed Best Friends Forever, find out what fans can expect from their newest union (like a Queenetta cameo!) and see how life has changed since Jessica's become The Pope of Designer Fashions For Less!
