Brad Pitt on getting married: ‘The time is nigh, it’s soon. I got a good feeling about it’

It’s Brad Pitt Day! Of course. Brad attended his premiere of Killing Them Softly last night in NYC, and I believe he’s already heading back to England (for WWZ reshoots) right now. But he got a day for his press junket for the film, and he got to wear all-black for the premiere. Personally, I think Brad looks great here, and I’m not disappointed with the lack of Angelina Jolie. I wasn’t really expecting her to turn up, and I like it when Brad goes solo to his events, just because I know it will inspire Make-A-Controversy spin (“They’re breaking up! Angelina called off the wedding!”). As I said in the previous Pitt post earlier, Brad did a bunch of interviews yesterday, so there are tons of new quotes. Here’s a sampling:

Brad on the wedding plans: “I am 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 time is nigh. It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it.”

Family first, then marriage: “We’ve had a family, we’ve raised the kids,” he says. “I am surprised how much [marriage] meant to me once you had that.”

But they still haven’t Saved the Date: “We really don’t … I don’t know what’s going to happen in two weeks. I certainly don’t know what the new year is going to bring!”

More about the kids: “I will admit, we have had some pressure from our kids. We didn’t realize how much it means to them. We didn’t realize how much it means to us.”

Location, location, location: “We are both migratory workers,” he said of his bride-to-be, 37. “It will be a matter of convenience location-wise.”

Taking a break now that he’s turning 49 years old: “I think that’s coming pretty quickly. I’m going to be 49 in a month. I really enjoy producing and I enjoy this opportunity, but I’ll be less and less in front of the camera.”

The Chanel spoof on SNL: “I am blissfully unaware of the chatter.”

Religion, gay marriage and drugs: “Equality, absolutely, that’s what defines us. It’s what makes us great. If it doesn’t sit well with your religion, let your God sort it out in the end, but that’s us. We’re equal….I do believe that we should be responsible for our own choices in talking about the drug laws, and that the drug war is an ultimate failure and that the billions and billions of dollars that we’ve committed to it, there’s got to be a better way. I don’t believe in incarceration over education — don’t get me started. But there’s real damage to drugs; that is not the same as with gay marriage. Since the last round [of elections], they’ve been linked in every article. I find that curious.”

I’m also including the Extra video below too. I mean, is any of this extraordinarily newsworthy? Not really. This is pretty much what both Brad and Angelina were saying during Brad’s Oscar campaign earlier this year. I do think they’ll probably get married sooner rather than later, and I wouldn’t put it past them to do a holiday wedding either. I could totally see them having a quiet wedding in France a few days after Christmas. But what do I know?

I’m also including some pics of James Gandolfini and Ray Liotta, both of whom were at last night’s premiere. I love Gandolfini’s smile! He’s such a big bear.

    This would be news-worthy if it was 2006. At this point, who cares if they get married or not?

  2. hoodrat says:

    He looks good,i can see a december wedding!

  3. Janet says:

    Whenever. I wish them both the best.

  4. Esmom says:

    I don’t know what to think about the wedding stuff, I think he largely just tells reporters what he thinks they want to hear to get it over with and move on.

    As for the premiere, I’m not a fan of Brad’s look. And his hair is getting too long — he’s straying into Kate M sausage curl territory!

    And that photo of Ray L almost made me shriek. He is so creepy, even standing there doing nothing, lol.

  5. Pants says:

    Ray Liotta is starting to look kind of good again… He sure went through a rough patch for awhile but he seems to have grown back into his looks!

  6. Maya says:

    I seriously hope he gets a haircut before the wedding.

  7. spinner says:

    Love was not mentioned even once. He is still putting it off on the kids. I knew this would surface. Brad is predictable, if nothing else. And yeah, he knows nothing about the Chanel chatter.

    • Sal says:

      Oh give it up spinner. YOU are predictable, if nothing else. I know you wish to believe he doesn’t love Angelina, but he has said how he feels about Angelina several times over. You really need psychiatric help.

    • Rhea says:

      To be fair, I’m sure if he said that he loves Jolie all the time people would think that he’s bragging/thinking that people who truly in love won’t need to do that all the time. Remember when Seal and Heidi announcing the split? Most of the people said that they KNEW something was wrong with them because they always re-new their vow every year and talking a lot about their love life. Another example??? Cruise and his I-love-Katie-couch. ;)

    • Janet says:

      Don’t you ever get tired of praying every night that he will leave Angie and the kids and run back to Jennifer?

      • spinner says:

        I think Jen dodged a bullet. She’s lucky.

      • Lucy says:

        Okay Spinner…..if Jen is oh so lucky then why are you still so obsessed with this couple??? There must be something about BP you still wished she had!!!!
        Is Justin not good enough or something? Go on their threads and dream about the children she will NEVER have.

        And lets see…..Jen’s movies without a big male lead bomb. She gets offered the worst roles and the leftovers. She will very quickly age out of her rom com roles.

        She is dating a man who is with her partly to get ahead in Hollywood. She is almost 44 and dresses like a 20 year old although her skin and middle age spread are showing her age.
        Not so lucky after all.

      • Sal says:

        Wrong. Brad is the one who dodged a bullet. Also Heidi Bivens is, you know the woman who the slut Aniston destroyed her life? Heidi is the winner, let the slut have the cheating creep. they deserve each other. Brad upgraded to a decent person. In time Heidi will too. Brad is a lucky man, and Heidi is a lucky woman.

    • skuddles says:

      Don’t you think him saying how much it means to him and Angie is a pretty clear acknowledgement of love? He’s not just saying how much it means to the kids. Why are you so hellbent on suggesting Brad doesn’t love Angie?

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Spinner, who wrote: “I think Jen dodged a bullet. She’s lucky.”

        @Skuddles, who wrote: “Why are you [Spinner] so hellbent on suggesting Brad doesn’t love Angie?”

        Probably because if she accepts that fact that Brad is capable of being in a loving, committed relationship she’ll perhaps have to admit that Jen-Jen ‘was’ partially responsible for the break-up of her marriage to Brad.

      • skuddles says:

        Ah thanks for the insight Emma – she’s playing the “poor Jen, Brad did her SO wrong” card? Yawn. :-/

    • femme says:

      Hi Spinner,
      I know you don’t like the brange, and I do (I’m a new fan, so dunno anything about the triangle saga and don’t want to).
      Inspite of that, I don’t understand why the other fans routinely gang up on you. It doesn’t happen in other threads. And I find your comments about Brad and Angelina least offensive when compared to some of the other threads.
      So even though I don’t agree with what you say, I m on your side.
      I’m very sad that Brad is planning to retire, and am sure some of it is driven by the crazy fans. These fans have succeeded in chasing away the rational ones. Smh.
      I’m not attacking the posters above, just giving an observation.

      • spinner says:

        Hello to you femme…You sound like a very nice person & I am sure the JP’s welcome you as a new fan. I know that I don’t aim to offend but I do like to be honest concerning my own views. Some of these super-fans are most aggressive & try to verbally beat anyone into submission who disagrees. I will agree to disagree & it is very nice to meet you. I am sure we will cross paths again on this site.

      • Sal says:

        Yet you’re the aggressive one who goes onto article after article making vindictive comments about Brangelina? Who is the one who is aggressive? You deliberately stir the fans up. Sorry but you’re a hypocrite. If you weren’t so spiteful and vindictive you’d stop posting on Brangelina articles.

  8. Amy C says:

    YES! YES! YES! it feel like it is about to happen to me too! Love the JPS.
    I will try to check the movie this weekend.

  9. JM says:

    Nevermind Brad. WTF happened to Ray Liotta?! He looks like a waxwork Goodfella.

    • Stephie says:

      Thank you! Finally, a voice of reason…. Who cares! Seriously, after being together for 8 years, why is it a big deal. He SHOULD marry his baby momma.

      Pitt is not looking good at all (my opinion)! The hair is entirely to long fo a 49 year old man, and he always looks like a homeless person to me. He also appears to be a tad stoned in these photos.

      • spinner says:

        Who cares! Seriously, after being together for 8 years, why is it a big deal. He SHOULD marry his baby momma.

        I definitely agree with this. Brad still dragging his feet — but you watch…if Jen & Justin marry, they will be accused of stealing their date or their thunder or something — JustJen will be vilified when the JP’s have had 8 years to marry & they are still making excuses.

      • Misnomer says:

        What has ‘JustJen’ as you so affectionately call them, got to do with anything, Spinner? Are the others right? You are obsessed with the JoliePitts because of Jennifer Aniston? Is that the real reason you dislike Brad?

  10. Amy C says:

    RL looks good as well but the eye liners a bit too much no? JG is always the same. Like mob movies.

  11. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like Brad, but don’t really care if he gets married. It’s been dragging on for awhile, and it’s kind of (yawn)….his hair; maybe he’s trying to score a shampoo commercial. It reminds me a little bit of Fabio. (I saw Fabio once and when he looked at me I made a gagging face)…
    JG (not attempting to spell his last name)….I love him!
    Ray Liotta is a good actor.

  12. roxy750 says:

    They will break up soon….She is so in need of some fresh meat. (Sorry Brad, your an awesome actor) but, ya know how it goes.

  13. lisa2 says:

    It was funny watching the interviews you could just see them almost salivating to ask about a wedding. If they had not asked he wouldn’t have answered. and really does anyone expect him to actually tell the world when they are getting married. He has not done any other public appearances. If he wanted to promote the wedding he could have been on any number of shows and they would have been quite glad to have him. Look he flew in and out to promote this film. Didn’t do any Talk shows to my knowledge. I myself would love for reporters to ask more interesting questions. the thing is they are all stuck in one gear. And they are all wanting an answer that they are not going to get.

  14. Aubra says:

    That he said “the time is nigh”…

    LMAO

  15. RobN says:

    I find it hard to believe that anybody still cares about this. Even if you like them, how many times are you going to fall for the “it’s close, it’s close” routine (about people you don’t even know)before you shrug your shoulders and say “whatever”.

    Whether Aniston learned it from him, or it was the other way around, they both do the drop the new romance/wedding plan crap whenever they’ve got a movie to promote. It’s boring from either one.

    Personally, I think he’ll save the wedding to promote the World War Z debacle; it’s going to need something big to save that stinker.

    • Lucy says:

      Lots and lots of people care! They are arguably two of the most famous actors in Hollywood and the world. No one really comes close to these two.

      This is the 1st time I recall him saying it is close! Maybe because it is??????

      If this is all to promote his film, shouldn’t he have started this earlier?? The film opens in a few days…..no more people will see the film simply because he says he is getting married.

      And a wedding will not make more people see WWZ either! You think zombie fan boys care about a wedding? Nope.

    • Amy625 says:

      @RobN, Brad and Angelina haven’t repeatedly said they are about to get married. They’ve said the opposite, that they don’t even have a date. Also they don’t pull the getting married card to promote a movie. They only do interviews when they are promoting a movie. The reporters have no imagination and have been asking when they will get married for seven years. I also don’t get the stupid claim that they will get married to promote WWZ. People see movies because they want to. Nobody would waste their time and money to see a movie they have no interest in because somebody is getting married.

  16. bns says:

    “I am blissfully unaware of the chatter.”

    LOL! Such a liar. They always insist on it, but I don’t believe for a second that two of the most famous people on earth don’t read their own press or know what people are saying about them.

    • Janet says:

      I’m sure he knows about it; whether or not he cares about it is something else again. After cashing that multi-million-dollar paycheck, why should he?

      KTS is getting some really good reviews, BTW. 93% on rottentomatoes.com.

    • Lucy says:

      If I were them I sure would not want to read all the nasty things on the internet about myself and especially my children! It would be depressing to have to read things complete strangers say about your own kids.

      I believe them. They really seem to have no clue.

      I can see after being the business so long you really do not care and choose to do to other things with your time then Google yourself. They are sure of themselves.

    • mich912 says:

      It’s VERY believable that he has been “blissfully unaware” of buzz. I was two states away with TWO kids, no wifi, and no say in tv choices & lots of outdoor playtime with cousins for the Thanksgiving holiday and I missed a ton of “buzz” in 4-5 days. For months & months, Brad has been overseas with SIX kids while working on 2 films- Miraval didn’t even have cable last time he spoke about it. Brad just showed what he’s been doing with his spare time- designing furniture! I missed so much tv when my kids were young- I didn’t watch the Sopranos finale until almost 2 years later!

  17. G says:

    Honestly, I don’t think either of them have any interest in sharing their wedding plans with the world.

  18. Jopl says:

    Still, after almost a decade it is scary to see how many Jen fans have yet to actually move on! Some act like it was yesterday!

    They all act like they don’t care…but oh they do!

    You would think after 6 kids people could maybe accept that just maybe B & A are a REAL couple who are together because they want to be!

    • Janet says:

      LOL, haven’t you heard? “They’re only together because they’re co-parenting.” (See post #20.)

      The excuses got crazier and crazier:
      2006 — They’ll break up right after the new year.
      New Year 2007 — They’ll break up right after the Oscars.
      Oscars 2007 — They’ll break up right after Cannes.
      Cannes 2007 — They’ll break up right after the new year.
      New Year 2008 — They’ll break up right after the Oscars.
      Oscars 2008 — They’ll break up right afer Cannes.
      July 2008 ad infinitum: Of course they can’t break up! Angelina trapped him and he’s stuck with all those kids!

    • Eve says:

      @ Jopl:

      “Still, after almost a decade it is scary to see how many Jen fans have yet to actually move on! Some act like it was yesterday!”

      Simple: they live the year of 2005 in a loop.

      For instance, this year on December 31st, at 11:59 p.m., they’ll begin the countdown to January 1st, 2005.

  19. HotPockets says:

    About his endorsement for Chanel, I work in cosmetics, so that ad is plastered everywhere and guess what? People think it is Billy Ray Cyrus all the time, Brad Pitt gets mistaken for Billy Ray Cyrus. I never realized how much they bare a resemblance and now I can’t unsee it! My Brad crush stemming all the way from Fight Club is tarnished!

  20. blonde on the dock says:

    Why oh why is this couple the exception in Hollywood? I dont believe they are ever going to get married. They’re simply playing the game. They’ll eventually go their seperate ways just like all the other phonies. In fact I’m beginning to wonder if they arent simply co parenting and there really is no relationship beyond that.

    • Jopl says:

      Please just go back to FF…….

      Why is there such a double standard with these two??? Other celebs are allowed to talk about wedding plans, are allowed to say it is coming up or whatever…but oh no these two are not allowed to utter a single word about marriage without being accused of some game!

      This film is not even among the Oscar talk and they are still accused of campaigning.

    • Kils says:

      In photos of them together you can really see that they are actually in a relationship beyond your so called “co parenting”.

      They show a lot of affection. Just the simple way he is always grabbing for her or making sure he takes her hand.

      You have such a negative outlook on life that you can’t even fathom that these two are together simply because they want to be. I would love to see your face when you read they are married. What a laugh.

    • bns says:

      “In fact I’m beginning to wonder if they aren’t simply co parenting and there really is no relationship beyond that.”

      This is what I think about them, too. Angelina has kind of hinted at them having an open relationship in the past. I think that they’re good parents and good friends, but they see other people romantically.

      • Jessica says:

        Uh…that “hinting” was from a tabloid that she never gave an interview to! So, nice try, but Angelina has never hinted at any type of open relationship.

        I swear I think the people who hate them are more obsessed than those who are fans!

        Just tell me why is it so hard to accept that they are a couple raising their family together?

        No one forced these two to have kids together. Brad could probably get any woman he wants, and he choose Angelina. Deal with it.

      • bns says:

        @Jessica

        Wow, you have a lot of feelings. I’m actually a fan of Angelina’s and couldn’t care less about Jennifer Aniston, but go on…

        It’s interesting that if you don’t worship the ground that they walk on and sop up everything that they feed to the press you’re automatically a hater. I love Angelina, but I think she can be just as full of shit as everyone else in Hollywood and I think that she and Brad have an open relationship. Deal with that.

  21. Paige says:

    @evyn the funniest comment on this post so far. Yes Spinner is predictable. You crack me up with the chanel comment. People clowned the commerical but do they realize he got 7 MILLION DOLLARS. He could have been talking to the wall but he still made 7 MILLION DOLLARS.the media is laughing Brad is laughing his way to the bank to cash his 7 million dollar check. The Brangelina Triangle. It’s been nearly * years. brad and jen have been broken up longer than they were together. Brad and Angelina will get married when they want to and I hope they don’t release pics so the crazies will have nothing to talk about.

    • Kils says:

      Yep!

      However, you just know if they did not release pics all the FF losers will claim they are lying and never actually got married!

      Then if they release pics, they will accuse them of just dressing up and pretending to get married. No way to win, so B and A should just do as they please like they have been the past EIGHT years.

  22. Barbara says:

    by the way what stands for FF? I see this abbreviation here often but I have no idea what that is.
    Thanks

  23. Bowers says:

    I don’t believe he didn’t read the reviews of his Chanel commercial.

  24. SaskiaR. says:

    Same old, same old, lol – I could guess what is in this thread before even reading it! Spinner and blonde on the dock spreading hate here and then, in next Aniston thread, they’ll be all surprised how much hate there is towards her. Nothing ever changes, lol!

    • blonde on the dock says:

      Seriously??? Spreading hate? I gave an opinion and it has nothing to do with Jennifer Aniston. Everyone goes on about how HW marriages or relationships are phoney and dont last. Why are these two the exception? I dont hate anyone and I dont like the word itself. They have six children together. One would hope it works out for them but……

      • SaskiaR. says:

        But…what? Your gut tells you they will break up because they are phonies like everyone else (except, of course, Jennifer Aniston)? Lol!

      • blonde on the dock says:

        You’re looking for an argument. I gave an opinion and am not interested in anything Jennifer Aniston or an argument. Have a nice day!

      • SaskiaR. says:

        I’m stating my opinion too, but I’m never hating on anyone and I don’t have double standards. Hope you have a nice day too!

      • Sal says:

        blonde on the dock, if YOU weren’t looking for an argument, you wouldn’t be stirrring up shit posting on an article about Angelina and Brad. But you can’t help yourself. Instead of giving these articles a wide berth, you like spinner, come here deliberately to stir up shit and stir up the fans. Clearly you ARE looking for an argument or else you wouldn’t be on here commenting. You are too transparent. Now eff off.

      • Cesar says:

        just a note: Angie and Brad don´t live in WH, don´t want to live in WH, don´t like WH, don´t like and don´t want to live in LA. And just came to LA when they have some film work or when they have some film wards they have to go, like Oscars or GG.

        They want to live in England, New Orleans and especially in France. They want to give the best education and the best quality life to the kids and WH and LA it isn´t the best place.

        Angie and Brad are citizens of the world and hate WH and LA. did you get it?

  25. The Other Katherine says:

    I swear, Brad and Angelina are a palate cleanser after reading about the Halle/Gabriel/Olivier custody nightmare. I suspect that if The Brange one day call it quits, they will have enough sense to keep it friendly and civil and make sure that all those kids get what they need, instead of whipping up endless drama for the courts to sort out. THANK GOD. I hope they have a nice quiet wedding that no one knows about until it’s done, and that the whole family has a blast.

    • jinni says:

      I’m sure no one thought the Halle/Gabriel situation would escalate like this when they first broke up. Halle was even talking about how great a father Gabriel was to Nahla in Vogue before things started going bad. So, who’s to say what would happen if Brad and Angie broke up, especially since, like Halle, Angie hasn’t always had the best relationship with her own father (just pointing this out because this is always given for the reason why Halle has relationship problems and the custody battle).

      Who’s to say that Brad wouldn’t accuse Angie of being unstable and use her history as proof of this and Angie could call him a pothead drug user because of his past/present(?). If they broke up and Brad settled in one spot, like he used to, he could use her wanderlust against her and demand that he have full custody because than the kids could have a “normal” childhood or try and get the courts to force her spend most of her time in an area close enough to him so that he can have a equal share of time with his kids (sort of like Halle wanting to move Nahla far from Gab). Who knows how Angie would react in that situation.

      I’m not wishing any of this on this family, I’m just saying that you never know what a person will do in a situation until they’re in it.

  26. tabasco says:

    “the time is nigh.” f*ck. off.

  27. skuddles says:

    I usually never care about celeb weddings but I’m excited about this one. Maybe because theirs is one of the few I think may actually last…

  28. Lmao says:

    Hmmm and does angelina know the wedding is nigh ? Doubtful. Nice facelift there pitt looking as young as Tom Cruise, but wait I just saw pix of him looking old as hell… Maybe just the lighting. :-)

  29. tabasco says:

    Brad is sporting The Rachel in the banner pic. Conspiracy!

  30. I'm going to Guam! says:

    He looks good here

  31. GrandPoobah says:

    Ugh, still milking the impending marriage for publicity, I see.

    I suppose they won’t actually get married until nearer to World War Z being released. God forbid Brad misses that juicy of a publicity blitz. Imagine the junkets!

    Being coy about it for years is so beyond lame. Either get married or don’t, but stop with the endless “will they or won’t they” back and forth. It’s so desperate. Like they are testing to see how the media will react and how much press they get each time they mention it.

  32. ShakenNotStirred says:

    He’s actually quite likable in this interview. As far as the marriage is concerned, they would have married by now if they truly wanted it. There’s really no need for an engagement since they’ve been together as a couple for 7 years and have 6 kids together.

    • lisa2 says:

      I don’t think Angelina has ever had that engagement thing.. ring. And they have not been married to each other. I think it is lovely that they want to do that. For their children and as brad said for themselves too. After 7 years it is kind of romantic.

      I remember my father never gave my mother an engagement ring. He and she got married before he went to the Korean war. Then after about 23 years of marriage he got her an engagement ring. We the kids got to experience his nerves in picking out the perfect ring, and the joy on her face when he gave it to her.

      I don’t think because you have children and been together for a long time negates the romance of being engaged to the person you love and want to spend the rest of you time in this world together..

      I think it is very sweet, and special because their children get to experience it too.

  33. lisa2 says:

    I think he looks really good. Happy. And he has a great body. Never seen the man out of shape.

    I think his quotes are being taken out of context. It happens. Various outlets pull quotes to make their story. Brad was in town for a matter of hours. He only did a few shows and the media junket. I think he and Angie both would welcome some different questions then the same ones over and over. How do you blame him when he is being asked the wedding questions all the time.

    I saw pics of the After Party.. Brad was not there, but that premier was the place to be. It seemed so many people wanted to be there.

    anyway I’m a huge fan and just like seeing him. Will be seeing KTS on Friday, I wouldn’t miss it.

  34. d b says:

    Damn. Am I the only one bored to effing hell with Brad and Angelina getting married? They’ve been together so long I don’t even think they’re hawt anymore LOL

  35. JEL says:

    Oh the anticipation is just killing me!!! *Note sarcasm* Does anyone actually still give a hoot if these two have a “legally binding contract”?

  36. Kosmos says:

    So just get married already, stop telling us about it. Big deal, you’ve been living as married for years now, so marriage is really not a shock, is it? I personally never cared for Jolie & I’m just not into the whole Brangelina thing, I guess.

  37. anom says:

    you will get your wish. they will get married. sooner than later, which kills you aniston fans.
