Brad Pitt’s ‘Between Two Ferns’ involves Louis CK, Ross & Rachel questions


Confession: I “get” why people think Between Two Ferns is comedy gold, but many of the BTF episodes on Funny or Die are sort of boring to me. Of course, there are exceptions. Pres. Obama’s Between Two Ferns was amazing. And now Zach Galifianakis has interviewed Brad Pitt and I actually found myself laughing out loud several times. Yes, it’s awkward and it’s supposed to be a send-up of those sycophantic celebrity interviews. But this is next-level amazing. Zach asks Brad why he doesn’t shower. There’s a gift of a massive bong. There are questions about how it felt to meet Angelina Jolie for the first time and whether it was like the first time Ross saw Rachel. The Friends theme song is played. And there’s a cameo by Louis CK. All in all, this one is pretty much as great as Obama’s BTF.

“Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan? Because you live in your wife’s shadow.” But really, Brad comes close to breaking and you can see that he’s very close to laughing when the Ross and Rachel question comes up. Damn, bro! How is that Zach Galifianakis managed to ask Brad about Jennifer Aniston when so many serious journalists have failed?

Do you like Brad more for doing this?

    Love Between Two Ferns.

    “Showers… Why don’t you take them?” LOL

    I actually thought Obama’s episode was one of the worst attempts at brainwashing in the history of modern comedy.

  2. Kim1 says:

    That was hilarious.
    Now I have to go watch other episodes.Besides Obama ,what are so funny episodes?

  3. TC says:

    Brad’s a gamer. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and knows how to laugh at the constant tabloid attention on his celebrity life because he knows what’s real and what really matters.

    • Andrea1 says:


    • Tanguerita says:

      …and he really, really want this Oscar.

      • TC says:

        I seriously doubt it. He may not even be nominated. Best Actor category will be a crowded field this year and Fury is getting mixed reviews, although I really thought it was stellar. The fact is, Brad goes all out for writers and directors he loves — David Fincher, Andrew Dominik, Steve McQueen, Bennett Miller, Quentin Tarantino his wife. And he’s had great things to say about David Ayer during this publicity tour. I think Ayer is his newest “Bro-mance.” Count on them working together again.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Is there an Oscar push for ‘Fury’? I haven’t read anything, really. Not for the actors. I read something about for the effects and the costumes, I think.

      • TC says:

        VC — Not to my knowledge, but I could be wrong. I know that Brad’s really been talking David Ayer up and is super proud of the film. He took his dad Bill to a private screening of Fury in LA a few months back. If there’s an Oscar push, I would think it would be for Ayer as director and the visual effects as you said (cinematography & art direction).

  4. Toot says:

    I loved the ending. lol Good shot.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Alright Bart Pit, you can now get that suntan.

  6. Jess says:

    Pretty funny! I lost it over the bong and the gum, and Brad saying he liked the “friends” song, lol.

  7. Lauren says:

    I laughed out loud at the “Ross & Rachel” thing!

    • Soulsister says:

      I did as well

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      SEE–you can make FUNNY triangle jokes (more directed at Chelsea Handler). I was watching David Letterman clips, and it was a few years after Brad and Jennifer divorced, and she was on–and he asked her about rumors…..her response was hilarious. He said something like “Don’t you find it funny, all of the ridiculous rumors that are made up about you?” And she said “Yeah, you mean that rumor that I was married to Brad Pitt once? Yeah, crazy. I don’t know where people come up with that stuff.”…….

      I thought the whole thing was funny…….

      • littlestar says:

        I never heard that Aniston joke before! Now that IS funny! Lol.

      • Sal says:

        Seems more like Aniston’s typical passive-aggressive shade to me.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I laughed my butt off–because she said it almost deadpan, with just a hint of a smirk. If she’d said more stuff like THAT after her divorce, I’d like her a lot more.

  8. Artemis says:

    It was sooo good. The swapping of the gum, the shower, the Jolie questions oh god…The good looks shitty actor part: screaming! It was a better pairing then the Pitt-Fallon one.

    I don’t know how Zach does it, he even got Sean Penn to look likeable and funny.

  9. tracking says:

    Amaze-balls. I spit out my coffee when he deadpanned “I like that song.” Good sport.

  10. Abbott says:

    “We don’t bassoon in my house anymore.” I laughed so hard I think I dislocated my torso.

  11. Mikeyangel says:

    That was awesome. Yes, I like him more for doing it.

  12. jinni says:

    I didn’t find this funny at all. The gum part in particular only illicit an “eww” out of me. The rest was just had me thinking “Wtf am I watching? Is this supposed to be funny?” I pretty much looked like this after watching the video:

  13. PunkyMomma says:

    It looks like he almost lost it a couple of times. Hysterical. And genius.

  14. Luca76 says:

    OMG I’m dying.

  15. Talie says:

    I don’t get why Brad doesn’t do Howard Stern if he does this… I guess he can only answer these questions if they’re a joke. I wish him or Angelina would go on to do a real interview.

    • Soulsister says:

      @ Talie – I wish him or Angelina would go on to do a real interview.

      Who knows, it might happen when they promote By The Sea.

    • JosieJ says:

      They do a lot of real interviews but they are not going to bash others or talk constantly about this kind of stuff.
      They aren’t stupid, they know what the headlines are about or what is said about them.
      I think the best thing to do is joke about it because it is so ridiculous. Why give it real attention in a serious interview when all of that nonsense is just that, nonsense.

      • Toot says:

        I’m glad they don’t give Howard any attention.

      • Talie says:

        They don’t do real interviews at this point, sorry no. They both just do standard press that is rehearsed. Everything is controlled and managed.

        I’m not talking about bashing people either, I’m talking about real insight and Howard is one of the few to get that.

      • Shantal says:

        Stern’s obsession with the sex lives and penis sizes of actors he interviews is “real insight” to you? Give me a break.

    • really says:

      Neither Brad nor Angie need PR that bad… they don’t even have any PR and have been able to promote their films just fine. If you are looking for more in depth, longer interiews with either of them, try Charlie Rose. Tavis Smiley and Anderson Cooper both did good interviews with Angie during the ITLOBAH as did Christiane Amanpour. Foreign journalists seem to ask them better questions overall. I do think Howard is an excellent interviewer and has said nice things about them in years past (Aniston, not so much). HOWEVER, as soon as Aniston invited Howard on vacation and he appeared on her paid pap balcony, he did a out of place radio bit about Angie having s*x with animals in front of Brad & their kids. Just like Chelsa, so transparent. I’m sure neither Brad or Angie heard it, and, as mentioned before, they are nice to everyone and trash no one, so they would have no grudge against Howard. In fact, Howard is a huge celebrity butt kisser nowadays, so it would probably be much easier interview than they have done with Charlie Rose or Bob Simon (60 minutes) . Kim1- Brad did TDS for Moneyball.. Jon Stewart was totally charmed and Brad was really funny.

      • TC says:

        Brad loves Charlie Rose. He’s on Charlie’s show for just about every project, either with his film director or solo….and his interviews with Rose are SO good. I personally think he prefers this interview format because it IS a real interview about industry business and not a 3 minute morning show sound bite about what he made his kids for breakfast.

    • Melody says:

      Because Stern’s a pig?

    • pwal says:

      Here’s a theory… I think Brad did this interview because unlike every other ‘legitimate’ interview, Zach knows he’s playing the dope. And even better than playing a dope, there is an acknowledgement that Zach G. is more interested in his own needs, versus pretending otherwise. Certain ‘legitimate’ journalists/interviewers are more interested in ‘accidentally’ creating viral videos, whereas that’s the nature of BTF.

      And then there’s the ‘legitimate’ journalists’ over identification with Aniston – well, the getting ditched part, since the ditcher didn’t think it was worth waiting around for the ditchee to ‘get there’ professionally. If Brad would’ve hung around, he would’ve been on this 10th giant bong by now.

      And then there’s the fact that Zach, along with Will Ferrell, made both Brad and Angelina a part of the joke at the Oscars when the leg of doom made its debut. Remember when they were playing those cymbals down the aisle and made a beeline towards Brad and Angelina and proceeded to smash them in their faces?

  16. JosieJ says:

    This is one the best ones. I laughed out loud a lot. Yes, it does make me like him more. He can take the jokes about himself. I like that.

  17. Chris2 says:

    That was brilliant! And was Brad rustling the leaves of the fern to assess their smokeability, just for Michael K?
    Dear God he gets more gorgeous by the day.

    I’d like to see this show with Colin Farrell as the guest… *there’s* a man who must gave kissed the Blarney Stone, always ready with a witty riposte, and deep into silliness and laffs.

  18. smcollins says:

    That was awesome, and one of the things I admire most about BP. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and knows how to laugh at himself, which makes him even sexier (if that’s even possible). The uncomfortable awkwardness of BTF is what makes it so brilliant & funny. Love it!

  19. Really says:

    What would the comments be if his ex was doing this interview?

    • Nikita says:

      Well his ex did lots of interviews about him and shes the celebrity who lives because of peoples interest in her private live, not for her good work. So it would look desperate. Brad on the other side is doing good movies and doesnt need this kind of attention. He never spoke so many times about her like she did. Just ask yourself, where would aniston be today if she never met pitt and where would pitt be if he never met aniston. His career had never anything to do with her as we all know. She would be still on tv shows without him. And nobody would care who shes dating

    • Luca76 says:

      Honestly the ex did a ton of interviews about him and whats great about this Brad is making himself the butt of the joke which is the reason it’s so hilarious.

    • Sal says:

      If it was the ex she’d get away with it like she always does. Her fans come on here and straight out LIE. Aniston has been INFAMOUS for using her marriage and divorce to break into and stay into Hollywood. Heck, all the gossip reporters all say this, it is NOT just fans saying it. But isn’t it funny how her fans conveniently ‘forget’ AAAAALLLLLLLLL the print and tv interviews she does where she mentions or references her marriage in *some* way? Funny how there is that disconnect and dishonesty there. Yet they accuse Brad of something he has never, never done. I think the term is called gaslighting.

  20. Kori says:

    About him doing anti-Nazi movies when he ‘looks like Hitler’s dream’. LOL

    • truthSF says:

      I could not stop laughing at Pitt’s expression when Zack said that.

      And the gum swapping was totes us when were kids, eww at all the unkown germs we were sharing back and forth.

  21. Sara says:

    “do you think people focus too much on your good looks and dont realize you are a shitty actor?”


    brilliant Zach! the Rachel Ross thing was great, too.

  22. Kim1 says:

    I would stop being a fan if he ever appeared on Stern .I would like to see him on Jon Stewart.I would like to see Brad and/ or Angie on Ellen.Angie hasn’t done a late night show in 10 years.I would like to see her on Fallon.

  23. Esmom says:

    I love Brad but I didn’t think this was all that funny. Zack was hilarious but Brad doesn’t have the comedy chops to make the comebacks that some of the questions seemed to demand, so it seemed to me he just kinda deadpanned a blank look as a default response.

    They have been few and far between but occasionally Brad has some cringeworthy moments, like this one and also when he guest starred on Friends.

    • bogati says:

      Oh careful hon…your bitter is showing. Brad did one episode of that dumb show and got an Emmy nod first time out of the box. Compare that to his ex – who it took dang near 10 years and seeing all her other castmates get noms before she ever did (and I personally think she only got that one because she dragged THE ‘Brad Pitt’ to all those tv award shows)

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Just because Esmom didn’t like the sketch (didn’t like Brad in the sketch) doesn’t mean she’s ‘bitter’. No one is immune to criticism.

        I thought his deadpan look was him acting the part of a movie star, who’s too cool/douchey/whatever to answer those ‘hard’ personal questions.

      • Esmom says:

        bogati, Sigh. I’m hardly bitter. I said I love Brad, which I do. I just thought his turn on Friends was awkward. And I don’t disagree that he can be funny, it’s just THIS interview that also seemed awkward to me. Geez.

        VC, thanks. And I hadn’t thought of your interpretation, makes sense. If he came back with zingers to each of Zack’s ridiculous questions, the whole tone would be different and maybe that’s not what they wanted at all.

      • Jayna says:

        He wasn’t good on his Friends episode, only average, as many movie stars are when they do these guest appearances like it’s a big deal on sitcoms to have them. And they always get nominated just because they are a movie star, not because they deserved a nomination for their guest appearance.

    • lisa2 says:

      Brad has great comedic timing..

      Burn After Reading

      too many others. Brad is funny. If you haven’t seen his tribute to Quentin then you missed out.

    • Sal says:

      I have to agree. I, (obviously) like both Brad and Angelina, but I don’t get a lot of the American type humour like this. This is in no way a slur on America, just that I don’t get that type of humour, I don’t really enjoy it. But, well, to each their own.

    • Dany says:

      yes, his Friends episode was cringeworthy. He was overplaying and just awkward to watch, but i think he really wanted to do something with Jen and both were a big couple so his appearance in one of the episodes of her hit series was mostly for fun and PR.

      • Esmom says:

        Exactly. And I always thought he got the Emmy nod because he was a huge “get” for the show, an A list film star who deigned to appear in a sitcom, way before film actors started doing all these TV roles like now. I thought he was a great sport about it but clearly didn’t have the ease with the medium as the rest of the cast did (it being their full time jobs and all!).

      • Jessica says:

        His Friends guest spot was painful to watch. Friends is one of those shows I’ll put on as background noise while I’m doing other things, but I can’t even listen to that episode it’s so cringeworthy.

        I’m not sure he has any comedic timing. I love him in Burn After Reading, but I actually noticed that his funniest parts have been edited majorly compared to the rest of the film. He has good delivery, but no timing.

    • littlestar says:

      I have to agree Esmom. I think Brad is great in comedic movies, but he doesn’t have the comedic chops to do “stand up” comedy, or fly by the seat of your pants kind of stuff. I did find a few parts of the sketch really funny, others fell kind of flat to me.

      And I know you are a Brad fan, just like many of us on this board are! 😀

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yeah, I like Brad (and Angelina, go figure–did you see her in that cameo for Sludge? where she’s completely deadpan?) when he’s sarcastic. I think I like that kind of comedy better. I liked him as Aldo Raine–I remember QT said that he hadn’t imagined the character being quite so outrageous and exaggerated until Brad read the ‘Italian scene’…..where they speak in Italian, and he’s speaking in this absolutely HORRIBLE accent. It was freaking hilarious.

        On that note (about Inglorious Basterds) I loved that QT said that he wanted Brad/Aldo to be bad at Italian/other languages because he hated the old war films where they put on a German uniform and speak perfect German….he said he envisioned Aldo pulling it off *slightly* better….but not by much.

  24. sophie says:

    Is he incapable of doing an interview where he doesn’t say “I’m a dad”? Nobody asked him about it. Plus, he lied when handed the bong and said I’m a dad and don’t do that anymore. Tell that to Tarantino who said Pitt brought out a Brick of Hash while the kids were in the house and made a bong out of a coke can.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I thought the point was they were trying to pretend it wasn’t a bong. Maybe I misheard it, but I thought Zach was saying it was some sort of a musical instrument, and Brad was saying he didn’t play whatever instrument–BUT obviously it was a bong. Plus this was a comedy sketch–I think that was the joke. I’ve never heard Brad talk about weed, except for that time when he said that he was worried that there might be something wrong with his bio kids because of the amount of weed that he smoked.

    • really says:

      I actually heard that interview….QT was very, very careful to say they didn’t smoke together and that he didn’t spend the night (which I thought was weird considering how big that place was). In subsequent interviews QT giggled like a school girl every time that story was brought up (Howard us rightfully bitter at how much other hosts steal from him) and Q kept upping the wine bottle consumed count, making it so wild, etc. Typical QT, IMO..he’s talented, but loves name dropping stuff. Quite frankly, I think hash is pretty harmless compared to booze, but as long as they were being responsible, who cares?

    • bogati says:

      Oh calm down bitter betty. These are all jokes dear. He’s not being interrogated by the cops. Get over it. It’s been 10 years already.

      • Anne says:

        “bitter” is your go-to when you want to dismiss a comment, isn’t it? [see above] it loses impact when you overuse it.

    • Mallory says:

      He is proud. He is a good decent moral man, whats wrong with that? And that interview came out after he stopped.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      “Plus, he lied when handed the bong and said I’m a dad and don’t do that anymore.” — The operative word here is ANYMORE. He didn’t say “never”, and he didn’t specify when he stopped. It was a joke, you don’t need to take it so seriously.

  25. Soulsister says:

    @Sophie – Plus, he lied when handed the bong and said I’m a dad and don’t do that anymore. Tell that to Tarantino who said Pitt brought out a Brick of Hash while the kids were in the house and made a bong out of a coke can.
    *Sighs and Rolls eyes*. Inglorious Basterds was made over 5 years ago so maybe between Tarantino’s initial comments and 2014, Brad has in fact stopped smoking dope while the kids are in the house.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      And beyond that–it’s a JOKE. I doubt the Friends theme is Brad’s favorite song (it IS catchy), and so in my mind, the joke is that he IS a pothead. And even then–like I said. A joke. Are all jokes supposed to be factually correct? Whether or not he smokes weed now, is irrelevant, because his persona when he was younger was that of a pothead–compared to now, of his persona as a devoted father. In fact, if I hadn’t read any gossip sites (which I don’t know anyone my age who does), I wouldn’t have known anything about Brad’s pot smoking days at all.

      I see nothing wrong with smoking weed when you’re a parent, as long as you’re being responsible. Who knows–maybe when Brad and Angelina go on their hotel dates, they have a special bong that they use.

  26. Beep says:

    Nope. Still don’t like him and I don’t think he’s sexy or hot. Back in the day I got the appeal even if I didn’t find him attractive… These days I don’t get it at all. He’s aged horribly. He’s no Rob Lowe. Interviews like this just makes it obvious that he’ll do anything for people to like him. If he ever wins an Oscar for acting (doubtful) he’ll be like Sally field, “you really like me!”

    • BNA FAN says:

      Hi beep, if you don’t like him, don’t waste your time to leave a comment. It’s ok not to like him or find him sexy. I bet you a lot of women find him sexy including his wife.

      • SunnyD says:

        Why can’t Beep leave a negative comment about Brad Pitt on a Brad Pitt story? It’s a public forum.

      • lisa2 says:

        Sunny she obviously can since she did.. and because it is a public forum..people will make a comment about your negative comment. Just how it works.

        if you don’t want someone to comment on your opinions then don’t post them for others to see.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think it’s rude. The basis of a good conversation is to have conflicting views. It would be boring if everyone agreed all the time.

      • lisa2 says:

        I understand the conflicting views.. I get it. When I don’t have time for the back and forth I don’t post. I skip and keep moving’ which I have done a lot lately.

        I just get tired of anytime a fans counters a negative then we are called names. That is the fall back position. If the comments on this thread were 90 percent negative the people complaining would not have a problem. ALL would be right with the world.

        so when they are positive then all of a sudden people get pissed and complain. Why is that the case.

        I just accept the fact that if you say something online someone can and may respond.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Well, I think that if you’re going to counter someone’s (negative) comment about someone, then it should be about the comment itself–not just say that because the comment was negative, that they shouldn’t be allowed to post. I post negatively on a lot of posts, about a lot of celebs that I don’t like. It’s just like those ‘you’re just jealous’ remarks. It’s rather annoying, especially since Beep doesn’t have a history (at least not what I’ve seen) of just irrationally hating Brad. Or any other celeb. And even if she does, it’s her prerogative. To play devil’s advocate, comments like Beep’s are left on Jennifer Aniston’s posts all the time, and hardly anyone bats an eye.

  27. tabasco says:

    This is the anti-Chanel commercial.

  28. Brodie says:

    It was funny but of course Pitt had to get in his 3 usual talking points when promoting a movie: Jennifer, Clooney and “I’m a dad.” Things never change.

    • BNA FAN says:

      Brodie, We have to give Brad credit for not asking his host to call his x the C word.

    • kendra says:

      Can he talk about his wife or is Angelina off topic also? It is his life he can talk about what he want to. You are talking about his life, but he is not suppose to?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I like it when male celebs talk about their families/kids. We’re on here, bitching about how only women are asked about kids/family/balancing work/etc, how women in the industry are so defined by their kids–so I like it when guys talk about their families.

    • bogati says:

      To Brodie – Omg. You’re hilarious. Aniston enablers and sad so-called fans are the only ones pathetic enough to think that when Brad mentions how bored, miserable and unmotivated he was in the late 90s and early 2000s, that that’s Brad talking about Jennifer. J-Anis equals boredom and misery Hahaha. Ok, you said it..not me. Also, everyone knows it’s Clooney who drops Brad’s name 24/7/365 – he does it so much it keeps his teeth clean. Oh and people who have children typically love them and talk about them. You and jen will never know. Sad.

      • lisa2 says:

        She can talk about her life because she “suffered so”.. she can make references to her life being like her movies.. but I guess it still hurts her fans 10 years later.
        Brad isn’t bringing her up in his interviews. He has a lot more interesting things to talk about.

      • Alana says:

        @bogati, that’s a really offensive comment. There is nothing wrong with not wanting or not having kids.

      • mayamae says:


        Do you actually know that Brodie doesn’t have children? How incredibly nasty to make the comment – “Oh and people who have children typically love them and talk about them. You and Jen will never know. Sad.” You’re burning up this thread calling people bitter – take a breath. I don’t know what’s more offensive. Mocking a person who may desperately want children for not having them, or mocking someone who knows they don’t want children, but is told they are incomplete without them.

        Why make such a personal attack?

    • sophie says:

      I have seen almost all of aniston interviews and I never once heard her mention pitt or her previous marriage (unless you plan to bring up the VF interview from 2005 for the millionth time. Would be interested to know which interviews she gave that she talked about pitt like you said she does.

      • Sal says:

        I guess you forgot all print interviews such as Vogue, GQ, and tv such as Oprah, etc etc. She has NOT STOPPED since day one, denying it is dishonesty.

      • Rena says:

        Bravo! The truth is what it is.

      • Monica says:

        Sure she talked about Pitt in her vogue magazine and bashed Angelina in it. She also did it in GQ. There was another magazine where she said she still keeps old voice messages of her husband. In another interview she talks about how she’s tired of the triangle I thin that was 2011.

      • Sal says:

        Yes, Vogue, where she laughed about a cartoon of her shooting Angelina. Really pathetic and spiteful. She was so full of hatred for Angelina, and she still is. Aniston really is pathetic. She has no classy or sense of decency. She will never be one hundredth the person Angelina is. That’s just a fact.

      • Kim1 says:

        Aniston hasn’t done Vogue since that interview .After that she insulted Wintour calling Vogue tabloidish.BTW Angie is on Dec 2014 Vogue

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Kim1 #48
        The reason Jennifer isn’t ever going to be on Vogue (at least not with the current editors) is because she demands copy approval of everything (text, cover, pics, EVERYTHING)–the British editor of Vogue doesn’t like that (Alexandra Shulman), and I’m guessing Anna Wintour didn’t mind until she threw her under the bus with that ‘Angelina is uncool’ quote on the cover.

        And Lord–a few inoffensive jokes at Brad’s past life/relationship, NOT insulting his ex in anyway garners a whole lot of criticism.

        And is Angelina on Vogue in December? That’s awesome. A good push for her movie. God, I hope they grill her about the wedding.

      • Sal says:

        Isn’t it convenient that these Aniston fans who claim to have seen or read almost all her interviews, have never read these interviews? Things that make you go hmmmmm.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Monica #40
        Yeah–I mean, he agreed to do it, but he’s not the one who wrote it. I thought the jokes were funny and inoffensive to both him and Jennifer. It’s tongue in cheek.

        And yes–in VANITY FAIR an ‘unnamed friend’ said that Brad wasn’t committed to the idea of raising a family AND supporting her in her career, in VOGUE she sang Brad’s praises (said he did nothing wrong before, during, and after their divorce) while implying that Angelina did something to wreck their marriage (but that’s not Brad’s fault), In GQ she trashed Angelina again (saying that Angelina confirmed ‘something’ for her), and then proceeded to NAME off Angelina’s children, and then said that she congratulates Brad on his accomplishments. I think it was in Allure (or one of those kind of magazines) where she said the biggest misconception about her was that she was feuding with her ex–which probably wouldn’t have been fed if Chelsea Handler hadn’t come on the scene.

        I still find it ironic that the one person who doesn’t talk trash, and in fact always greets Brad and Angelina like a friend is Courteney Cox. It was at the GGs in 2007ish I think.

      Brodie, Brad practically never mentions Aniston. He has all of TWO TIMES in 9 years. Unlike Aniston who has built her career on being the ex Mrs Pitt and never goes one interview without in some way referencing her ex and/or marriage. Not one. Nor has he ever brought up Clooney. If you are going to throw shade up someone – word of advice. Actually get your facts straight. Or at least research the facts before posting, ok?

  29. kendra says:

    LOL, love it. that was so funny.

  30. kri says:

    LMAO. It was perfect. All of it. I sooo like Brad right now.

  31. Brodie says:

    He always brings Jen up in order to get some publicity for whatever crap movie he’s currently promoting. Still riding her coat tails!! Also, no way could he be with Jon Stewart. He doesn’t have the ability to keep up with would be too sad for him. His best bet is to keep quiet and let Ange do the talking.

    • Maya says:

      Why the hell does Brad need to bring up his ex wife to get publicity for his movies?

      This man is the most recognised man in the world, one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, can get any movie greenlit by just getting his name attached. His movies are Oscars winners and nominators, big budget and critically acclaimed movies.

      He doesn’t need Jennifer at all – she has to strip off her clothes to get her movies sold, her recent two movies don’t gave any distributors, her friends constantly attacks Brad & Angelina to keep the triangle alive.

      It’s seems to me that it was okay for Jennifer to give interviews after interviews (vanity fair twice, people, Barbara Walters, Oprah etc) and even gets her vile friends like Chelsea Handler, Howard Stern etc to verbally and brutally attack Angelina.

      But no Brad is not allowed to ever mention his past. This is only the second time he has ever mentioned his ex and he gets attacked. Double standard is well and alive.

    • darkdove says:

      Aniaston has crappier movies are you in to romcoms that only win razzy awards go watch those then, I forget how Smart Aniston is you know when she likes to watch pople think toughts or is just loving eyeballs.

    • BNA FAN says:

      Brodie, there you go again talking about things you know nothing about. Brad Pitt was on Jon Stewart show in 2012 promoting Money Ball, look it up. And I must say he was looking mighty fine. Btw, JA Has no “coat tails” for Brad to hitch on to, it’s the other way around, we will not talk about that, because it does not matter.

  32. Zigggy says:

    I think I’m the only one who thought it was super lame. ?

  33. Kim1 says:

    Brad was great on Stewart’ show when he promoted Moneyball.Brad has rarely spoken about Aniston but I will.Her Oscar bait film,Cake,still doesn’t have a distributor almost 50 days after TIFF,why?
    Oh in more great news,Angelina will be on December Vogue to promote Unbroken.

  34. hilda says:

    William stop coat-tailing your ex

    • Sal says:

      Stop twisting it around. The next time Brad coattails his ex, will be the FIRST time. Without Brad and Angelina, Aniston would be just another Lisa Kudrow or Joey or whatever. She has built her career on coat-tailing the JPs. Its no surprise that all gossip reporters talking about Aniston coat-tailing the JPs.

    • darkdove says:

      a movie star coat-tailing a tv actres too funy maybe you should try stand up comedy.

  35. Maya says:

    Vanity Fair twice, Barbara Walters, Oprah, Chelsea Handler, people magazine are just the few times Jennifer has mentioned and used Brad & Angelina’s name to get sympathy and publicity.

    Brad has only mentioned Jennifer twice including this interview. Angelina has never mentioned Jennifer.

    So yeah Jennifer is the one who keeps this triangle going.

    • Monica says:

      Brad doesn’t even mention aniston here. Zach is making a joke about Pitt’s life.

    • BNA FAN says:

      maya, You forget JA on David Letterman mentioning Brad Pitt. So she has been the one riding Brad’s coat tails. Some people forget that fans can remember the facts no matter how much some people try to change it to fit their point of view.

    • Sal says:

      There are many more too. Isn’t it convenient that these Aniston fans who claim to have seen or read almost all her interviews, have never read these interviews? Oh so strange, that is. rme. Her Vogue ‘uncool’ comment (same magazine as the cartoon gun thing that she loved) that she tried to back track on and LIED saying she didn’t say that, only to be forced to admit she did when Oprah said to her (paraphrasing) “I know the Author, I believe them”. She tried to wriggle out of the uncool comment when she got heat, she tried to blame the Editor even though the editor of Vogue had her on tape. She is a serial liar who can’t stand behind her own words when she is called out for it. Apparently Vogue will not have her on their cover again, after that. She burned her bridges with them when she tried to through the editor under the bus to save face and image.

    I don’t get the fern bit? Why do they have ferns there?

  37. kendra says:

    let’s not forget the People cover ” Five years after Brad”. When Brad had moved on and had kids with Angelina. WTF Brad was with Angelina, why did Jennifer think anyone cared about her life without Brad.

    • Sal says:

      Yeah! She actually agreed to do that 5 years after Brad interview and cover. It wasn’t a tabloid article. It was approved by Aniston. I mean, WHO DOES THAT? Why? Where is her DIGNITY?! Like I said, she has no class, no sense of self respect or dignity. If she did, she would NEVER do that interview and cover five years on.

      And lets be honest here: if Brad had done that interview and cover, the Anistonloonies would never, and I mean NEVER let him live it down. But its ok for some tv sitcom star ex wife of a movie star to do a HALF-DECADE interview on where she is, after Brad Pitt? If THAT isn’t riding the JP coattails, I *don’t know what is*!!!!!

      Aniston was then and still is OBSESSED with the JPs. She stalks them and coattails them and tries to one up their premieres and news releases. She is a sick person who would have no career if not for her sick stalking and coattailing the JPs.

  38. Kim1 says:

    I’m not sure Vogue interview was done after the wedding.Some magazines do interviews three months before they come out.Dec Vogue comes out in November.

  39. Rena says:

    Glad to see Brad do this. Kinda reminds of the jackass kidnapping which some people thought was real and called the cops LOL. Brad has a drool sense of humor and is able to laugh at himself and take part in humor and satire with ease.

    Can’t believe anyone is here after all this time pretending not to know about all the times a mainly tv actor and her designated surrogates have brought up her ex and or his family in a number of interviews for over 10 years now. It is only lately that the ex has begun with her highly paid “bulldog” PR master to try to turn her persona into some middle aged “I am woman don’t pity me”. Guess the media sympathy engendered by “poor pity me” has run its course with 99.9% of the public.

    And NO megastar A+ Lister has ever or will ever hang on to the coat tails of a tv actor who has failed to transition to film star in mostly rom coms geared for younger women. Anyone with any logical or rational cognitive ability recognizes this universal truth.

    As to QT and his always highly embroidered tales well the one he tells of Brad and the hash took place according to QT in 2008 and this is now 2014, so its application as to what Brad currently does in his home has no validity in fact.

    Angie in December Vogue, happy news. She gives great interviews and never shades anyone.

  40. Anon says:

    Who knows…maybe, Brad and Zach were trying to give the old gal, Aniston, a boost up. Her movies haven’t been doing well lately. If a comedic actress like Jennifer cannot find humor in ‘Between Two Ferns’ …..perhaps that’s the problem with her career.

  41. Jeanette says:

    They are probably all cool with each other and just the rest of the world is still fighting over the triangle. I think at some point each one of them uses the interest from the triangle to their advantage. They are trying to sell theirselves and their work to us, so why not.?!?!

    As for Cake not having a distributor, a lot of good films that got a lot of interest and have Oscarworthy performances still do not. The film also has my guy and gal William H Macy and Felecity Huffman in it, and they are in my mind always good! I read on Deadline that this years Oscar race is impossibly full and some are holding back on the release dates, Kevin Costners new film (which interests me as well-cuz Kevin Costner yum!) being on of those along with Cake.

  42. pwal says:

    This is some funny $h!t.

    Brad took those jabs like a champ.

  43. Jeanette says:

    I fail to see how either of them talking to the press, or how many times, or who brought it up first, about their relationship makes an impact on… A-they divorced. B-Jolie let it slip they fell in love during MMS or C-what kind of actress Aniston is compared to them.

    Aniston is a comedienne, Jolie and Pitt are dramatic. Sometimes I feel dramatic and sometimes I feel like a laugh-so the subject matter is different. But suddenly- when we are laughing its crap. I dont get it. If you wanna overlook what they did fine, wonderful..its way past time to move on. Does that have to make Aniston bad?

    • Mallory says:

      What do you mean ‘what they did’, Jeanette. They did nothing wrong.

      • Jeanette says:

        I should be a code among women..if he is married..he is off limits. I dont care if the marriage is over-if you are worth it to him he will make himself available. Of course they never came out and said yeah..we feckin..but you know they did.

      • Mallory says:

        Well they did wait. Even Jennifer said that he told her upfront and she wanted him to have an affair and get it out of his system but he couldn’t do that. He pursued Ange, not the other way around. And it was after Jen moved on to Vince Vaughn so doesn’t that make Jen the cheater?

  44. BlueeJay says:

    I knew when I saw so many posts that it must be Jen under discussion. Brad alone could never generate this many posts. But why are we discussing Jen in a Brad post and quotes from years ago. Can fans of these people please let go? Ten years on it is getting really old.

  45. dpatz says:

    Sal -Brad Pitt has mentioned his ex-wife (unsolicited) WAY more than 2 times in interviews (and from a volume basis, he gets interviewed less than Aniston). He dedicated an entire GQ article on his divorce! Just wise up and realize they have all discussed the unholy triangle either to leverage the publicity or JUST because it’s the elephant in the fricking room. Frankly, out of everyone who has the right to speak about the end of the relationship, it is the people who were actually part of it, don’t you think?


    • Mallory says:

      That is not true at all. Jennifer dedicated the entire VF to her divorce, and the Vogue interview to the divorce, and the 5 years after Brad in People. It goes on and on and on, but those are 3, not 1, where she dedicated the entire interview to the divorce. 3 from her, vs 1 from Brad. Brad has only mentioned Jennifer twice, sorry but that’s the truth of the matter.

  46. Yep says:

    I can’t believe I read all these comments. You guys all need lives, and apparently I do too.

  47. Shannon says:

    Some people think this is a real interview:

  48. neer says:

    I may be in minority but I have to say I am sorry…. i really don’t like the humor in Between Two Ferns. Not my cup of tea at all. It’s good BP didn’t comment at all. I think the purpose of the show is to make the guest feel awkward and to see how he reacts to every uneasy question. I hate it. Why anyone would like to put oneself in that awkward situation. I don’t get it.

  49. JessSaysNo says:

    I LOL’d at the Ross&Rachel stuff. I love B2F!
