Brad Pitt Washes Hands for Pontius Pilate Role

Brad Pitt may be about to step into the role of one of history’s most hated leaders. The actor is in talks to play Pontius Pilate, the Roman military hero whose political aspirations landed him the responsibility of approving the crucifixion of Christ, according to Deadline. Pilate is often considered little more than a Biblical villain, but Pitt and Warner Bros. seem to think there’s a deeper story to be told.

Deadline reviewed a draft of the film’s script by writer Vera Blasi, saying:

“Blasi’s script reads almost like a Biblical era Twilight Zone episode in which a proud, capable Roman soldier gets in way over his head. His arrogance and inability to grasp the devoutness of the citizenry and its hatred for the Roman occupiers and their pagan gods leads him to make catastrophic decisions. All of this puts him in a desperate situation and in need of public approval when he is asked to decide the fate of a 33-year old rabbi accused by religious elders of claiming he is King of the Jews.”

Pitt hasn’t officially signed on for this historical epic, but a deal seems likely. The depressingly handsome-slash-talented actor will next be seen in zombie thriller World War Z.

Watch the trailer for Pitt’s latest film, Killing Them Softly. And then let us know — what do you think of the actor taking on the Biblical character in a future film?

Did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Get Married?

Have superstar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie secretly tied-the-knot on the tropical island of Turks and Caicos?

The UK Telegraph newspaper is reporting that the world’s most famous couple exchanged vows before family and friends on Christmas Day.

A rep for the couple has not returned our request for comment.

The couple was reportedly staying at the fabulous Parrot Cay estate of American fashion designer Donna Karan.

Known as ‘The Sanctuary’, the estate consists of three secluded villas with three open-air pavilions and four swimming pools, which reportedly housed their six kids Pitt’s parents, Jane Pitt and William Pitt – plus his brother Doug Pitt and sister Julie Pitt.

The entire estate, styled in an Indonesian/African influences, sleeps a total of 22 people.

Pitt and Jolie — who got engaged in April 2012 after being together for seven years — were expected to get married later this year at their 35 room South of France estate Chateau Miraval.

But The Telegraph is speculating that the couple may have tried to fool the world’s press and hoards of paparazzi by actually getting hitched over the holidays.

There was recent speculation in In Touch magazine that Pitt, 49, and Jolie, 37, had picked-up wedding rings from celebrity jeweler Neil Lane recently.

And in November, Pitt indicated to reporters on the red carpet of the New York premiere for Killing Me Softly that the wedding was imminent.

He said: “The time is nigh. It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it.

“I’m getting more pressure from my kids and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come.”

The famous couple met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith back in 2004 when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

After Pitt split from Aniston in January 2005, he officially started dating Jolie in April of that year after they were photographed on a secluded beach in Kenya with her adopted son Maddox.

Just three months later, the couple adopted Ethiopian daughter Zahara together before Jolie became pregnant with their first biological daughter Shiloh in January 2006.

They also adopted son Pax from Vietnam in March 2007, and Jolie gave birth to twins Knox and Viviennein France in July 2008.

If the couple has indeed wed, it will be the second marriage for Pitt — and third for Jolie.

Pitt previously married Aniston in Malibu in July 2000 while Jolie wed English actor Jonny Lee Miller in March 1996 before marrying actor Billy Bob Thornton in May 2000 with the couple splitting in 2002.

Brad Pitt vs. Justin Theroux: Who Has the Hotter Body? (POLL & PHOTOS)

Life’s a beach when you’re Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The Brangelina brood is reportedly staying at the serene Caribbean retreat of fashion designer Donna Karan in exotic Turks and Caicos for a holiday getaway.

The famous family is joined by 22 VIPs, including Pitt’s parents, brother, sister, and those closest to the couple for a big blowout New Year’s bash, according to the New York Post.

Karan’s stunning villa is located in the ultra-swanky island community of Parrot Cay and features a private white sand beach, infinity pool with black volcanic stone and an open-air screening room for watching movies.

The island abode, which was featured in Architectural Digest in 2009, is an interior decorator’s dream with three private villas separated by open-air pavilions and stained cedar walls throughout the exclusive property.

Janice Dickinson: My Fourth Wedding Will Be My Last (EXCLUSIVE)

Forget third time’s the charm, Janice Dickinson is putting her own twist on happily ever after.

The feisty ex-America’s Next Top Model judge has vowed that her fourth marriage — this time, to Dr. Robert Gerner – will be her final walk down the aisle.

 “I know I have found ‘Mr. Right,’” Dickinson told Celebuzz, in an exclusive interview.

The 57-year-old – who has had several high profile flings with the likes of Jack Nicholson, Mick Jagger, Bruce Willis, Warren Beatty and Sylvester Stallone – also dished new details on her shock engagement, sealed with a 5-carat diamond ring from Harry Winston.

“We are going to have a big splashy Hollywood-style wedding for our friends and family,” Dickinson added.

The model was previously married to Ron Levy and then to film producer, Simon Fields, for six years from 1987 to 1993, with whom she has a son Nathan, 25.

She tied the knot with third husband Albert B. Gersten in 1995, but the pair broke up the following year. Dickinson also has an 18-year-old daughter Savannah with former boyfriend Michael Birnbaum.

 

For once, the outspoken “world’s first supermodel” was left speechless after Gerner, whom she calls ‘Rocky’, surprised her with a proposal at LAX Airport last week.

“Rocky was about to fly out to a conference when I said to him, ‘It’s sweet to see your boyfriend before he flies away’ and he replied, ‘I would rather be your fiance’,” she said.

“I had to catch my breath because it was so romantic and although he did not have a ring I said ‘yes’ because he’s the most wonderful person.”

Gerner presented his future wife with a stunning 5 carat vintage-style diamond ring a few days later, leaving her one happy woman.

And although they have only been dating for three months, the new man in her life has already been given their blessing by both her son and daughter, who will play key roles in the wedding, she said.

Despite what the cynics might think, Dickinson believes that she’s finally found somebody she can trust and settle down with after a string of failed marriages and relationships over the years.

 

“Look, the last time I was married was 17 years ago, but this time it just feels right,” Dickinson said. “Robert is the most intelligent, caring and kind man.”

“We can talk about anything and we even find each other finishing one another’s sentences a lot of the time.”

Their children have actually brought them closer together.

“He has his own grown children while my daughter Savvy will be our maid of honor and my son Nathan will walk me down the aisle. They are both very happy for me.”

In her memoirs, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel, and the follow-up, Everything About Me is Fake … And I’m Perfect, Dickinson describes in detail her experiences with plastic surgery, anorexia, bulimia, alcoholism and a sexually abusive father.

But now she claims to have found true happiness later in life after enduring a string of heartbreaks along the way.

“Look, I’m really happy and content with Robert and we plan to have a big, big, celebrity-style wedding for our family and friends next year,” she gushed.

“It will be a big event that will out-do Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wedding!”

What do you think – will Janice Dickinson’s fourth wedding be her final walk down the aisle?

Happy Birthday, Brad Pitt! See His Sexiest Looks (PHOTOS)

‘Tis the season to celebrate one of Hollywood’s sexiest stars.

Brad Pitt is turning 49 on Tuesday — and proving that he’s only gotten hotter with age. From his breakout role in Thelma & Louise in 1991 (you remember those abs, don’t you?) to this year’s Killing Them Softly, the golden-haired god has now been lighting up the silver screen for more than two decades.

 

And in that time, he’s gone from just another pretty face (you’re still thinking of those abs, right?) to serious thespian. In fact, his acting efforts have earned him three Oscar nominations: for 12 Monkeys, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Moneyball.

 

He’s also changed his look for many of those roles — and rocked more than a few red carpets with a variety of styles. Whether he was slimming down or buffing up, rocking pretty-boy coiffes or sporting long locks, or looking  clean-shaven or super-scraggly, we were always left weak in the knees by Mr. Pitt.

So to celebrate his big 4-9, we’re looking back at his sexiest, most show-stopping looks. Click through our gallery to see them — then let us know in the comments section which is your absolute favorite.
