Here are some photos of a de-bloated Brad Pitt and a documentary director named Rachel Boynton in LA last night. Boynton directed the documentary Big Men, which Brad executive produced, because he’s a big Oscar-winning producer now (eat it up, loonies). Before we talk about the movie, can we have a word about how Brad looks? He looks… surprisingly good. Surprisingly “refreshed.” Surprisingly de-bloated. Did he find a good diuretic or a good doctor? CB suggested that it might not be “surgery” in the traditional sense, that Brad might have gotten a laser peel or something. Whatever is happening, it’s interesting.
As for this documentary, it sounds good. Here’s the synopsis, via IMDB:
The film’s central story follows a small group of American explorers at Dallas-based oil company Kosmos Energy. Between 2007 and 2011, with unprecedented, independent access, Big Men’s two-person crew filmed inside the oil company as Kosmos and its partners discovered and developed the first commercial oil field in Ghana’s history. Simultaneously the crew filmed in the swamps of Nigeria’s Niger Delta, following the exploits of a militant gang to reveal another side of the economy of oil: people trying to profit in any way possible, because they’ve given up on waiting for the money to trickle down. So what happens when a group of hungry people discover a massive and exquisitely rare pot of gold in one of the poorest places on earth?
That does sound interesting. It’s the bit about “unprecedented, independent access” that’s intriguing. I guess having Brad as executive producer opened some significant doors.
In other Brad news, E! News says that he attended a party for Kings of Leon in LA last Friday. A source says: “Brad was really friendly and having a really good time. He spent most of the night talking with lead singer Caleb Followill.” He also chilled out with Garrett Hedlund.
Also, there was a rumor going around a week ago that Brad Pitt was being considered for Season 2 of True Detective, but Gossip Cop says that’s BS. I don’t know though. It might be an interesting career move for Brad.
