Did Brad Pitt get Catherine Zeta-Jones kicked out of Oceans 13?

There’s a rumor that Brad Pitt requested that Catherine Zeta-Jones’ character meet an untimely death in Oceans 13, due to the nasty comments about his relationship with Angeilna made by her husband, Michael Douglas:

Brad Pitt has reportedly used his considerable clout to get Catherine Zeta Jones dumped from Oceans Thirteen due to her hubby Michael Douglas comment and shot about Angelina Jolie and her “third world orphans.”

Mike Walker [of the National Enquirer] reports that before the actor would agree to sign on to Ocean 13, Zeta-Jones would need to be dumped.

Not only did she need to be swept out of the third ‘Ocean’s’ film, Pitt reportedly wanted her dead (in the film).

Walker writes: Before he’d agree to star in the film Brad decreed not only that Zeta-Jones be banned from reprising her role – he actually forced producers to write in a scene explaining that her character has dies a horrible death.

Cue the rep: Pitt’s PR folks denied all and Walker says “curiously claims Brad is not even aware of the Douglas remarks.”

Brad may seem like a pansy now that he’s holing up in Namibia with Angelina, but he may be capable of being fierce when someone mocks him. Or maybe Angelina put him him up to it.

Update: Al Pacino has joined Oceans 13.

Angelina’s exclusive interview from Namibia with Ann Curry will air on the Today show tomorrow morning at 7am and on Dateline Sunday at 7pm. Angelina says she doesn’t talk about her relationship with Brad either to the press or with Brad himself and that she hopes to bring awareness to the need for education for children around the world.

In her first comments about her relationship with her Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star, who divorced Friends actress Jennifer Aniston last year, Jolie tells Curry, “I don’t talk about our — my relationship in public. But we also don’t talk about it at home.

“It’s one of those funny things that just happens, and you live your life, and you’re a family. But you never actually discuss (it).”

The whole relationship question, Jolie says, makes her “giggle.” It’s “just kind of funny. If (Brad) saw this, he would probably understand why I was laughing. Because I just don’t know how to address that kind of thing.”

Jolie says she broke her silence with the media to further her latest cause: educational opportunities for children worldwide.

She also said she knows the sex of the baby, but won’t reveal it.
