Is Brad Pitt walking with a cane because Angelina Jolie kneecapped him?

Breaking news: Brad Pitt is old. He’s so old, his bones are brittle and his joints ache. He’s so old, he has to walk with a cane. Seriously! These are photos of Brad walking with a cane “while leaving a skin care spa” on Thursday in Beverly Hills. Sorry I buried the lead: Brad Pitt gets fancy facials in Beverly Hills. While using a cane! Anyhoodle, since I can just feel your fingers itching to write something nasty about how I totally HATE OLD PEOPLE and how Brad really isn’t that old – chillax, bitches! Brad is old, compared to me (sort of). Brad is still a very youthful man, I think. And as for the cane – he actually has a medical reason for it, and it doesn’t involve Angelina whipping his old ass until he busted something. Well, actually…

Brad Pitt can’t always lean on Angelina Jolie when he’s in pain — which might explain why he’s using a cane!

The 48-year-old actor stepped out in Beverly Hills Thursday with the aid of a walking stick. “He tore his MCL,” a source tells Just Jared, explaining that Pitt injured one of four ligaments that stabilizes the knee joint.

The cause of the World War Z actor’s injury is not yet known — nor is the reason he chose to wear an all black jumpsuit.

As of now, Pitt is still expected to walk the red carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globes on January 15. The Tree of Life actor is nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama alongside George Clooney (The Descendants), Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar), Michael Fassbender (Shame) and Ryan Gosling (The Ides of March).

Maybe Brad and George Clooney have more in common than we think. I’ve long assumed that all of George’s injuries from the past few years are sexcapade-related, and now I’m wondering if Angelina didn’t kneecap Brad for mentioning the name “Jennifer Aniston.” Only Angelina would kneecap her man and then send him out to get a facial. “Bitch, if you don’t exfoliate, I’m gonna cap that ass.”

    “The cause of the World War Z actor’s injury is not yet known — nor is the reason he chose to wear an all black jumpsuit.”

    I know, I should not do this, but it just popped into my mind and now I have to write it. Please don’t hate. Here goes:

    He picked up the red tie from the floor, once again attempting to put chaos back in order. It was calming, tidyng up, he always found it soothing.
    As he sat on a huge pile of now ruined Armani suits he could not help but wonder: what if he HAD actually used her bath salts? Shuddering, he preferred not to think of that scenario.
    He looked down at the once beautiful black and gray pants and jackets, all their hand-made tiny stiches broken and tored, the expensive fabrics burned and stained. Well, that did not go to bad, did it?
    A quick glance at the wall clock told him he was running late, again. Gosh, he hated being late on manicure days, the woman would be cranky and his fingers would suffer. Brad frowned, stuck again in the apatic mood he had become so wary of and yet so used to. He really needed to finish and clean up all that mess before Angie’s afternoon nap but that meant being tortured by a most inflexible 45 year old Russian manicurist.
    He briefly wondered if the room needed being impeccable, or if he could get away with sticking all his damaged clothes into his closeth. As time pressed, he made a quick, panicked decision: he would take the risk; he had to.
    It all took about 15 minutes; he even took an extra two to spray some parfum in the air, to clean the air of the lingering smell of burned ARMANI SUITS. Gosh, Angie could be brutal.
    Brad wiped quickly his eys dry as he snuck out the bedroom. He had to be strong, for his hands’ sake.
    He quickly jumped into the car and drove in a hurry. He was still only 15 minutes late, he could do this. A smile, a compliment … the Russian woman would warm up, eventually. If only she wasn’t so damn good on the cuticoles.
    Parking! He could not believe it! How lucky was that?
    As he parked into a somewhat tiny space, Brad smiled to himself. The day wasn’t so bad now, was it? He thriumphantly got out of the car, pressing a firm hand on his cane’s head … and there they were. Paparazzi. Brad started smiling nervously, wondering about the stories that would come up: “Brad injured, Angelina mad beacuse he talks to the moon man” . He sighed inside, thinking: if only they knew… And then he realized it.
    He was still wearing his cleaning jumpsuit.
    He felt all the color abandon his face. In the hurry of leaving the house he had forgotten about changing clothes. And finally he realized.
    She knew. She always knew. She did it on purpose. She did it on the day of his manicure, just so he would make a fool out of himself.
    Pale with rage and humiliation, Brad smiled bitterly to the photogs.
    Gosh, that woman was vile.

    Pure genius

    Hahhahhhaaa! Kaiser! I know you are being funny but, didn’t know…he is old compared to you?.. kinda? You are very funny. He is a year older than me, and I can def tell you all, mid-40′s are surprisingly stiff/dis-jointed. I can’t believe it myself. Of course, I don’t do daily yoga, and I continue to ignore that shiny eliptical, my bad. I have been thinking for about 6 months that I would get a cane, just for those weather related mornings, and because I like to be somewhat of a trend-setter. Ebay, and thrift-stores, here I come again! That’s all the inspiration I needed. (Btw, if Mrs. Smith did knee-cap him, he probably had it coming that day…and he probably liked it…lol!).

      Yr younger than you hon….have been using a walker, then walker & wheelchair since I was 34. Considering @ 30 I did cross county cycling, running, & obstacle courses and had more stamina than I did @ 21.. so it seemed. I think thats why i like Angelina so much..i was a beauty queen but a dare devil as well. Darn young onset Parkinson’s Disease. My falls became more frequent & brutal as I started breaking bones on my too frail at the time body (meds have since helped but not stop it..but did a number on the body size as I have Sarcoid & scleroderma also). Point, I chuckle when I hear the stiffness and cramping is from being in my
      40′s… For two reasons 1. Wouldn’t know what that feels like have felt it long before and 2. All those women who say 40′s is the new 20′s & 50′s the new 30′s sure leave out the aches & pains part lol. All that being said…I’d like to think the kids were spending the night at a friends and Brad in the heat of it all forgot his age while he and Angelina got a Lil Mr. & Mrs. Smith going and in mist of it all involving a dining room table, the red ties (from above) used by Ang to tie him up, some whipped cream, and the chandelier…and well a that was that as he hit the table w/ a hard ..bad landing tearing up that knee and leaving Ang to say damn Brad you could have torn it after! Lol

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

        For what you have been through, and going through, by your sense of humour you have an amazing attitude – great post :)

      • Wow, Green_eyes, call me Hazel_eyes, but your story sounds real and true. I just love you already. I had pins put in my knees in my mid-20′s, from a genetic disorder, still lucky enought to walk, but def not confident enough to catch a frisbee, or look ahead while going down stairs or crossing a street. You sound like an incredibly strong and appreciative person in spite of your circumstances. Love, love and Love!

      • Green_Eyes says:

        Thank you very much Mitch Buchanan Rocks…a great sense of humor is most essential in life. Rather have lived thru life w/ a bit of difficulty & laughter than breeze thru life w/o it :) .

        Hello Hazel_eyes. Lol call me Mary:). Ouch sweetie I just felt pain for you reading that. Safe to say we both set of Airport security systems… Yes, I would be very careful to this day if I were in your shoes. Going thru it once is bad hard enough and any fall no matter how minor or how fit we think we are could cause severe damage. Wishing you (and everyone) the best of health and happiness… And nice to meet you Hazel eyes.

      • Willworkforfood says:

        Nice to meet you too, Green_eyes. Big hug.

  15. fabgrrl says:

    What I find odd is that he is using an ugly, silver, standard medical issue cane. If it were me, I would buy some pimpin’, hard-wood, ivory and gold accented, old fashioned looking cane. Then I would twirl it around and tap it jauntily on things. Maybe put on a fake accent. Oh! and get a monocle. With a little chain on it.

  16. ladybert62 says:

    He looks disgusting – the dirty appearance seems to be a constant on him. That beard ages him as well. He looks like a homeless bum.

  17. Kaye says:

    He looks like a grease monkey at an upscale Alfa Romeo dealership.

  18. Mia says:

    I just wish I could have him for 5 minutes with some warm water, a bar of soap, a razor and a pair of scissors….1) shave off the dead animal on his chin 2) cut hair 3) scrub and lather head and face

    = back to the “sexiest man of the year” -winning Brad

  19. mln76 says:

    When people say he looks dirty I usually ignore it but I just have to address it this once. His skin looks pretty clear and honestly like its been exfoliated (AKA CLEAN) and there are no visible stains on his clothes. The hair looks geled yes but many people wash their hair then style it afterwards. It seems sort of silly to call him dirty. But everyone has a right to their opinion.

  20. Turtle Dove says:

    With six kids and a busy career, I think he’s got a bit more to worry about than his hair.

    • Willworkforfood says:

      Agreed. However, he still seems to be able to take time out to spoil himself a little rotten, via skin care, etc. Part of his job though, so, no harm no foul to me. And he can def afford it. He has always gone good-bad-or otherwise with his hair, but I’ll bet that is bec he genetically can, keeps growing. My hubby keeps choosing to go bald, with the graying goat-ee. Looks hot for him, and the new in for alot of hottie and older men. I think this careless look, makes Brad look more secure with himself, just IMO. (Russell Brand, for instance, might want to wash his hair – Apples & Oranges!).

    • Carrie says:

      I agree with 10 nannies and flping career I think he’s got a bit more to worry about than his hair.

    • cw says:

      it takes 3 min to wash your hair, come on, i do’nt care how many kids he has!
      plus he has 2 nannies per kid….that’s no excuse

  21. really says:

    Angie kicked his ass, let him walk with a cane—– it is a reminder “do not even think of fucking with Angie!”…. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ole Bradder, he is such a tender old cookie. In a ONESIE, oh my …………..

  22. keira says:

    maybe he’s going ugly on purpose so paps won’t find him so attractive.

  23. maemay says:

    Yes he is getting older but he still retains a youthful air and general appearance. He doesn’t have the jowls and bloat and pot belly stomach that many men his age have. In spite of it all “Brad don’t crack”….maybe his knees, but overall he is holding up.

  24. lisa says:

    Awww poor Brad.. all these people that don’t like how you look..LOL

    Brad is fcuking hot now matter what he wears or doesn’t wear. But I have to laugh at the story. Whatever he does is news and the people that “don’t find him attractive” just can’t stay away.

    Brad is an attractive man. And that to me is a fact. Looks younger and better than the vast majority of some of the men that some on this site love to call so hot..

    • Susan says:

      Perhaps for you. But a man in a onesie with a cane just doesn’t do it for me (how old are you anyway? like over 60? – just wondering).

      As for for the other – seems the man is vein. What happened to the man who his fans say is growing old so well and is so manly and doesn’t care about getting old. Manly men don’t do skin spa days – at least not the men I know. I guess he does mess around with his face.

  25. cw says:

    the more i look at him, the more i think he looks like a dirty old alcoholic

    i believe there are serious substance abuse issues here

  26. journey says:

    oh come on, jen is obviously upset about brad’s oscar nomination and the possibility he might actually win it, so she sent her ninja-assassin-beanie-baby out to do him some damage. the gerbils of doom rushed in in time to save brad from the killer beanie baby, but not before his knee took a hit.

    (okay, if you’re not a regular reader of d-listed and celebitchy this sounds deranged. maybe even if you do!)

  27. Anastasia says:

    He fights the hot, that’s all.

    As for the MCL thing, I’ve done that (along with my ACL) and it’s incredibly painful.

  28. Julie says:

    I do like a more cleaned up version, i.e. shorter hair, no beard, but I adore him any way he wants to dish it out. And even the outfit, OMG, he does what he wants and doesn’t give a shit. We all know he can dress when he wants to but love it when the really could care less what we think.

  29. spinner says:

    I can’t believe I am looking at Brad Pitt in these pics. He looks terrible. He obviously chose to look like this. What message is he trying to send? I am holding my nose as I type this. Stinky.

  30. Deltona lakes says:

    Brad Pitt will always be hot! He just got that swag that no other actor in HW has.

  31. AngelMay says:

    Brad and George’s constant injuries are from drunkytimes not sexytimes.

  32. Adrien says:

    Oh Celebitchy, 48 years old dudes day today. (Jim, Johnny, Brad).

  33. atlantapug says:

    He looks like Big Pussy’s little brother. All he needs is a thatch of chest hair and a gold medallion of the Virgin Mary.
    I never really found Brad Pitt very attractive. He looks like he should be working on my car. Esp now in his “I’m too serious of an actor to worry about my looks” phase. But not so casual as to go without the fancy facials I see.
    Anywhoo…. I’m 37 and have had bursitis of the hip for 3 years (since my last kid was born) so I know all about the early aches and pains.

  34. JP Fan says:

    Kaiser you are pathetic and not a comedian. We all know everyone on this board would DIE to even meet Brad let alone be wwith him. Draw in your catty claws and acceept George looks old aand Brad sstill looks gorgeeous. That’s wqhy aall Jeeen’s hos are not satisfied witth tthe Fraaauds neewww 440 year old sshort, stumpy baalding, cheaaating guy! LMAO, reaality check pleaasee Kaiser, your bias is waay too OBVIOUS! Duh!

  35. MAMAKOWALSKA says:

    I always have and always will think he’s awsome!!! Y’all are babies and don’t appreciate a real man!!! You probably go for the hair jelly guys with stuck up hairs that are so popular today yeesh…

  36. mmf says:

    Amazing,that you people can spot drug and alchol issues by a photo. Wow is all that comes to mind.
    I used to enjoy this site, thought it was funny. It seems anymore, the vast majorty of posters are just pissy, and very judgemental.

  37. olivia says:

    Maybe he had his balls implanted back in and he’s wearing baggy clothes till the stiches can come out :)

  38. JoleenMean says:

    Isn’t the fact that he’s wearing a onesie the real story here?!

  39. Paloma says:

    He would get a better facial if he shaved that mess off his face.

    Could be a motorcycle mishap that caused his injury.

  40. Petunia says:

    Oh, man. That dirty hair! The billy-goat beard! Ick.

    Okay, got it out of my system.

    Even if Angelina kneecapped him, it’d feel like the flutter of a dragonfly’s wing because she is THAT tiny.

  41. blonde on the dock says:

    Greasy hair, a onsie and a thick gold chain…….he looks ridiculous.

  42. boo says:

    “Bitch if you don’t exfoliate I’m gonna cap your ass” I LOL on that one! So funny. I love me some Brad anyway, even though he looks like a billy goat, I still see him in Thelma & Louise, where his face was as beautiful as anything I have ever seen, he’s a pretty boy no doubt.

  43. whatevs says:

    Kaiser stop giving those cheap tabloids silly ideas! you know they read this and are preparing the headlines for embittered people as we speak

  44. Ravensdaughter says:

    The MCL is not as common, but skiers, for instance, tear their ACL’s (anterior CL) all the time.
    Brad and I are the same age. “Life begins at 40″-total crap. Your body starts to fall apart at forty if you are a relatively normal person (vs a workout/health “enthusiast”), which Brad seems to be despite his celebrity status. He is probably just a Weekend Warrior as far as exercise (like George Clooney) and doesn’t have the crazy metabolism that Angelina obviously has, so he may have a little extra weight. For all we know, he stumbled off a curve and tore his MCL. My sister, who is just over fifty, broke her ankle slipping off a curb when she was distracted by the ramblings of my 91 year old father (note she does not have osteoporosis.)
    S–t just happens when you hit middle age. That’s why some people have a middle age crisis (Johnny Depp?), while some people (like me, my sister and probably Brad) just get distracted, forgetful and clumsy.

  45. Moreaces says:

    But, But, didn’t she leave him last week?

  46. Sakyiwaa says:

    Haha! I love Brad! But I cant help it… he got a facial, is wearing a onesie and tore a ligament! Boy, he must feel crappy! Everyone has ‘em! Thanks 4 reminding me ur human, Brad. Lol. Luv ya!

  47. skuddles says:

    I haven’t read the story yet but I burst out laughing at the title! :D Git ‘em Angie!!

  48. Heine says:

    Dude is wearing a ONESIE. A Forever Lazy by the looks of it. Oh my gosh, WHY?

    Why not sweat pants? Why not some kind of light trouser?

    It is quite possibly THE most hilarious thing I’ve seen this week. Starting the year off with Brad Pitt in a onesie is spectacular. Thank you, Brad. The giggle monster has taken me over.

  49. Kate says:

    The headline for this story is a thing of pure genius. I’m still giggling.

  50. Jackie says:

    i never found brad pitt attractive up until the last few years. love his style now (minus this jumpsuit and metal cane). he can pull this look off without looking like a try hard.

  51. Meadowlark says:

    This whole article, that cane, that onesie… gold.

  52. original sandy says:

    he, he, chil-lax, any way, now i want him to put more effort into his appearance, i know he’s a man and he’s at home with his family, trying to chill, and we know for certain he does not care about having that hot title anymore.we also know under all that facial hair, good lord, angie seems to adore him no matter how he looks, bbt anybody? i still love me brad pitt, lol

  53. Ishy says:

    He looks dirty like Kid Rock, except u wud never catch Kid Rock wearing a onesie

  54. Runs with Scissors says:

    It’s like a mechanic’s jumpsuit or something, so weird.

    I think he got sick of everyone making such a big deal about his looks, so he does this mountain man routine with the beard and hair, he doesn’t give a damn if anyone thinks he’s hot (which is kind of hot). Still, it’s getting tiresome.

  55. lisa says:

    Brad is Brad.. never dressed for anyone but himself.

    I guess the obsession for all that is Brad continues.

    People whined all over the web for over a year when he was wearing the hats; crying he had lost his hair. Then it was another year of whining when he had that long beard. Magazines and blogs were doing a daily count of how long he wore the hats and how long he had the beard. Blogs and comments pleading for him to shave or take off the hats. Now please tell me what other male celebrity gets this kind of over the top obsession on what he wears or grows.

    Brad.. you still have it. You have it enough for there to be over 100+ comments about your “onsie” and why you are walking with a cane.

    Yep.. Brad freaking Pitt is still the MAN.

  56. Honey says:

    It’s pretty amusing how his fans are running all over this thread defending his honour, and then complaining that people commenting on his hobo-like appearance are the ones who are ‘obsessed’ with him.

    His hair looks greasy- “It’s Gelled!”

    He’s wearing a onesie- “He’s got swag and confidence!”

    He looks dirty – “Brad Pitt was the highest paid actor in 2011 and he exfoliates regularly!”

    What’s with the ugly gold chain?- “It was a gift from his kids!”

    He’s always injured- “The last time he was injured was on the set of Troy!”

    Brad looks gross- “LOL (since when does ‘LOL’ mean *grinds teeth angrily and bangs head against keyboard in frustration*?) at the people that don’t find him attractive! Brad is fcuking hot now matter what he wears or doesn’t wear”

    Some people really need to step away from their computers.

  57. original sandy says:

    who cares what (some) not all bloggers think? brad certainly don’t, if he did, do you think he would walk around looking like this? lol, that says a lot right there, like i said above, brad knows who he is, he’s a handsome man under there, lol, he’s comfortable in his own skin, he should be, look at all his accomplishments and success, look at his life, he did all of it own his on merits, not attaching himself to others for relevancy, not starving for attention, he is BRAD PITT. recognize, brad does not need defending. he is not every ones cup of tea, fine.

  58. Wendy says:

    No letters from Pitt’s lawyers yet? lainey has a post up claiming that his legal people have had these pix pulled.
