Um, really? Brad Pitt's Esquire interview has even more surprising revelations -- this time from Jean Black, a makeup artist and friend who has worked with Pitt, 49, on nearly all of his films since 1990. Speaking with Esquire, Black sheds new light on Pitt's legendary meeting with Angelina Jolie on the 2004 set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, when he was still married (apparently unhappily) to Jennifer Aniston. "I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie," says Black, who then quickly clarified of [...] »
In the new issue of Esquire magazine, the 49-year-old actor admits he's a little bit of a loner and has some trouble when it comes to forming friendships.
"I have very few friends," he tells Esquire. "I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven't known life to be any happier. I'm making things. I just haven't known life to be any happier."
In actuality Pitt, who has six children -- Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne -- with his fiancee Angelina Jolie, 37, always wanted a big brood to fill that empty space.
"I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big. I wanted there to be chaos in the house," Pitt shares, adding, "there's constant chatter in our house, »

If you recognized numerous familiar faces and names from the original Star Wars trilogy scattered throughout Lucasfilm's animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, you haven't seen anything yet. The time will be coming for the Rebellion to assemble and fight back against the Empire on the small screen.
Disney and Lucasfilm have revealed the next animated Star Wars series will be titled Star Wars Rebels. As the name implies, it will be set between the events of Revenge of the Sith that saw the Empire and Darth Vader come to be, and A New Hope in which Luke Skywalker began his heroic journey from farm boy to savior of the Galaxy. This is a time period that has not yet been explored in the Star Wars mythos on the big or small screen, one in which Darth Vader leads the Empire to rule the Galaxy with an iron »
Before "Star Wars Episode VII" hits theaters in 2015, you'll get to see another product of the marriage of Disney and Lucasfilm.
A new animated series called "Star Wars Rebels" is set to make its debut in the fall of 2014. As first reported by EW, the show will air its premiere on the Disney Channel before moving to Disney Xd for its series run.
The show is set in the time between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope," which should give the show lots of material to mine as the Empire consolidates power and the Rebellion begins to take shape. There's no word yet on whether the show will follow characters "Star Wars" fans already know, introduce new ones or do some of both.

If movie and primetime TV stardom are the dreams of most actresses, then Kerry Washington is living the dream. At 36, she's starred in many well-known films including this year's Oscar award-winning film "Django Unchained," the award-winning "Ray," "Last King of Scotland," and her hit TV series, "Scandal." While she plays the love interest in "Peeples," the movie is not your standard romantic comedy. When she sat down with Moviefone, Washington discussed her taste for quirky, off-the-beaten path roles and revealed a part of her past that makes her well-suited for the role of Grace, a high-achieving daddy's girl in a upper-middle-class African-American family. You play a part of what can be called the black bourgeoisie. Did you do anything special to prepare for that? I always prepare. I like to study and research and prepare, but my family used to rent a home every summer in the Hamptons, in Sag »

Development is ongoing for Star Wars: Episode VII, which features J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness) as the director and Oscar-winner Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) as screenwriter. The film will usher in a new generation of Star Wars movies – now that George Lucas has stepped aside as the franchise architect and president of Lucasfilm – beginning in Summer 2015, with either a new Episode or spinoff/standalone installment arriving each year thereafter.
The first two Star Wars spinoff/standalone features, which are currently being kept tightly under-wraps, will be scripted by series vet Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg – whose screenwriting resume includes Mr. and Mrs. Smith, X-Men: The Last Stand, Sherlock Holmes ...

We open tonight on Karen slipping away from Jimmy Charming's bed in the dead of night. Jimmy is naked and unconscious. He's never been more appealing. She gathers sheet music from his piano and sneaks out the door. Jimmy awakens and sees that the music is gone.
His reaction is slight...
Which displeases Derek, as we learn that this is the scene from Hit List where “Amanda” steals “Jesse's” songs in this world without intellectual property lawyers or the Internet. Derek says this is the moment where Jesse realizes that he's been used and his life's work stolen. Jimmy explains that no, Jesse has no idea what's just happened and Derek's interpretation is wrong. Not a concept Derek appreciates exploring on the first day of rehearsal (or, frankly, ever) but rather than push the point he simply calls for a bigger reaction than a shrug.

We open in Eileen's office, where she's outraged that she is not allowed to attend the reading of the latest draft of Bombshell. Jerry's on the couch, looking like he's in the opening stage of a migraine, and reminds her that if she hadn't told the Feds the truth she wouldn't be frozen out. Eileen snaps back that some people still value integrity. In show business?
She suspects Jerry is enjoying her powerlessness a little too much. He quips that she could never be powerless; she's just not the producer. He exits and she's on her way out too, telling her assistant Liz that she'll be visiting mobbed up bartender Nick.
Tom and Derek scope out the Belasco Theatre as the new home for Bombshell and Tom hops up on stage. He wants to see if there's room to land an airplane for a possible new number »
As Rebecca’s lies get more twisted, the wicked wife is quickly losing allies! Is she about to crack?
Dan and Theresa’s wedding went off without a hitch on the Feb. 26 episode of The Lying Game — and by that, I mean absolutely no one got hitched. The bride remained M.I.A., and a full-scale investigation was launched; but the most shocking discovery was the one Emma (Alexandra Chando) made about her dad. In the episode’s final moments, Emma confronted Ted (Andy Buckley) at the grave where Theresa went missing, and she was holding the hospital I.D. card he left behind!
In what could be considered an equally surprising turn of events, Sutton came clean to Emma about her dealings with Rebecca (Charisma Carpenter) — and I mean all of her dealings. So for the first time since the pilot, the twins are finally on the same page. »

Directed by J.J. Abrams (Super 8, Star Trek), Star Wars Episode VII will be the first in a new trilogy of films for the popular franchise under the Disney/Lucasfilm banner. J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, the first of a new series of Star Wars films to come from Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy.

When you look at Wedding Crashers from the outside, it really didn't look like much. Starring Vince Vaughn, who had just been in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Be Cool, and Owen Wilson, who had just come off Meet the Fockers and Around the World in 80 Days, it looked like a dumb comedy with an insane premise that could never work. Then of course, it became a hit-- and gave us reason to trust Wilson and Vaughn, even when they didn't seem to be doing something all that promising. So we're keeping this in mind as we look ahead to The Internship, which just revealed its first trailer online. Take a look below: As you might notice the trailer was posted on YouTube-- a Google-owned site-- by none other than Google Play, marking the beginning of what I"m sure will be a ton of corporate synergy in promoting »
Now, we know what the first two spin-off flicks will be: a Young Han Solo adventure, depicting the smuggler’s origin story and taking place in between Episodes 3 and 4, and a Boba-Fett film, which would take place between 4 and 5 or 5 and 6 (when the guy takes a dive into the sarlacc pit). There is all sorts of source material at play here, with Timothy Zahn’s Smugglers an option, the awesome trilogy The Bounty Hunter Wars, and so much more. We’ll see. Let the wild speculation on who they’ll nab to play a young Han Solo begin!

The rumours have been circulating for a few months now, and Lucasfilm and Disney have confirmed that Star Wars will be taking a leaf out of Marvel’s precedent-setting playbook.
We heard back in November that Simon Kinsberg (Sherlock Holmes) and Lawrence Kasdan (Return of the Jedi) had been hired to start writing scripts, which at the time we thought were for Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX.
Now the studios reveal that the two will be consulting on the upcoming new trilogy, but that they will each in fact be writing spin-offs instead, which was a possibility we heard soon after the news first surfaced.
So far, two spin-off films have been confirmed, but it’s likely that we can expect more in the years to come – both sequels to those spin-offs, and further spin-offs to expand the universe even further.
Each film will be centred around a specific character, »

The screenplay is being penned by Michael Arndt, the Oscar-winning writer of 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'Toy Story 3,' while Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter on 'The Empire Strikes Back', 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', and 'Return of the Jedi,' and Simon Kinberg, who wrote 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' and the Robert Downey Jr. version of 'Sherlock Holmes,' will serve as consultants.
“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie,” said Star Wars producer and Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy in a statement. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. »
