Is it suspicious that Brad Pitt has been traveling solo all summer?


Here are some photos of Brad Pitt at LAX on Sunday. Thoughts on his ensemble? I thought the long-sleeved white shirt was mesh at first, but now I think it’s just really, really thin cotton. I’m glad he didn’t wear that with nothing underneath – I know that Brad is keeping it tight, but his penchant for see-through t-shirts is a weird style quirk and I need him to move past it. I’m also fascinated by that tattoo we can see through the shirt – it starts at his left shoulder and seems to go down his arm. That looks new to me? Although historically, I’ve always paid more attention to Angelina Jolie’s tattoos rather than Brad’s.

I think Brad was coming back to LA after spending much of last week in New York? Brad has actually been traveling a lot this summer. He wrapped on Allied, the film with Marion Cotillard, back in May. Since then, he’s been going back and forth from France to New York to LA in a seemingly endless loop. Of course, the tabloids have been trying to make something out of that, mostly because Brad has been traveling alone for most of these trips. Is there trouble in Brangelina Paradise? I don’t know. I suspect that Brad and Angelina’s marriage has ebbs and flows, just like every other marriage. Last week’s In Touch even claimed that while Brad and Angie have been having big issues lately, they’re sort of fine now.

What I do believe, however, is that Brad and Angelina are saving up their Brange-reserves for this fall. Allied will be released in November, in the middle of the Oscar-hopeful season. Brad and Angelina will likely put on a loved-up display and everything will be fine, especially if the film is any good and Brad actually gets nominated for something.

    looking good, sir! except for the see-thru tee, I don’t like that either.

    • almondmilk says:

      I love this whole look. Dayum. Now THIS is how you wear a pair of trousers. Gulp.

      As for traveling solo–
      Where do these bloids think he is when he’s not traveling? At home with Angelina and his kids. The kids aren’t babies anymore, and while many think you’d have more time- because these are actual little people with problems, and issues and concerns -they actually need even more attention and supervision.

      They’re both very busy people, and busy parents. Would they like to drop everything and travel as a twosome forgetting the world and their kids? Occasionally….and I’m sure I’ve heard they do this a few times a year. But when it’s just travel for work or business and he’ll be back omw. Few days what for?

      Funny how an inseparable couple who travels solo now and again, gets more scrutiny than a couple who don’t hardly live together and is bi coastal.

    • nikko says:

      Loved him when he first started and love him even more, even more then Idris. He’s my favorite actor!

  2. Bichon says:

    Would like him to ditch the hats.

    • tback says:

      Those types of hats are quintessential LA hipster…I live in Palm Springs & we know who is from LA based on hats haha

      • Athena says:

        omg. you’re awesome. I live in Palm Springs too and literally play ‘spot the LA tourists taking pictures with vintage cars’ from my window when I’m bored. If you ever see a girl in an sunhat with a positively enormous brim, though, know that she’s a local and sweating it out all summer with the rest of you <3

  3. lower-case deb says:

    i thought the black thing on his upper arm looks like a kinesio tape of some kind.

    did he hurt himself?

    or would it be due to some flying saucers in the Jolie-Pitt homestead?

    • Rhiley says:

      That is exactly what I thought it was; not a tat. I think Brad looks great, but I also think that, like many people in their 50s, he has aches and pains. He put his body through a lot in his youth and he probably doesn’t bounce back from strenuous filming or workouts like he used to. Plus, that stuff is supposed to be good for circulation so if he has been on a lot of planes of late his joints are probably pretty tight.

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      Yep, thing on the shoulder is a spider wrap. I use them for muscle pulls and injuries.

  4. lilian says:

    Looks like kinesiology tape, he must have pulled something getting in and out of these tight tanks. Or it’s a pretty ugly tattoo.

  5. silken_floss says:

    I know that Brad is keeping it tight, but his penchant for see-through t-shirts is a weird style quirk and I need him to move past it.

    Noooooo! He’s rocks the see thru looks well! Brad’s aging like fine wine.

    • amunet ma'at says:

      LOL, that’s a cause I can get behind when it’s someone like Brad Pitt, Fine wine indeed. #seethrushirtsmatter

    • Rebecca says:

      He was fine wine, but I think he’s turned to vinegar. He needs to put those shirts away.

      • Zuzus Girl says:

        Agree. Can’t stand those shirts or the hats. (And I live in Asheville now, hipster heaven.)

  6. ###stainless says:

    I agree with you Bichon…he should ditch the hat.he looks more relaxed than when he’s beside Angelina, I must say and I don’t blame him, given that Angelina and Kate are in an unseen battle as to who’d win Miss thinnest

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      Ah, so being beside slim women makes a man tense. Thanks for that useful insight.

      • almondmilk says:


        I laughed so much at this.

        I don’t know why people bother posting anything, just ‘meow.’

  7. A says:

    Not a tattoo – it’s black chiropractic tape.

  8. Beez says:

    Good lord he is a fine looking man. Swoooon

    • Aussie girl says:

      I was thinking the same thing. If he sat next to me on a plane I think I would melt!

  9. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    He did spend father’s day alone. But maybe Angelina and the kids just didn’t feel like going to the race he was at, or his present was “guy time.”

    If she doesn’t do any red carpets with him, then I might start to wonder if they are having problems.

  10. ###stainless says:

    Beez thou shall not covert anything that belongs to your neighbor…. including fine looking men…..

  11. GGKURAI says:

    Yeuch and god forbid he gets nominated – he’s a terrible terrible actor (except in, and I’m being fair I think, in Seven and Thelma and Louise.

    • Arlene says:

      Are you kidding? He was great in IB and in Fury, Fight Club and Snatch. I’m not his biggest fan, but the man can act.

  12. sera says:

    They have six kids and busy careers. They are not joined at the hip and Brad is certainly not bored. They have been together over ten years. Anyone in a good long term relationshop, with 6 kids and busy careers do not question anything about Brad and Angie except. How do they keep looking so good?

    • Sarah says:

      You know nothing about their relationship. I always chuckle when the die hard fans try to reassure everyone they are fine with absolutely no knowledge whatsoever.

      And it’s weird to travel without your spouse all summer. Not a good sign, that’s for sure,

      • Tarsha says:

        You know nothing of the relationship either, so why assume the worst rather than take the default position of assuming people are happy and taking them on face value? I always chuckle when die hard haters and trolls find it so weird that ordinary citizens take someone else’s marriage at face value and don’t automatically assume the worst, as you do. Something rather abnormal with people who go around ‘assuming the worst’ of strangers marriages. Bizarre, and unhinged.

        Also, he is travelling for work. How many people do YOU know who travel to work everywhere with their spouse? It would be weird if you travelled with your spouse to work. In fact, that would be a VERY bad sign. Very bad indeed.

  13. Belb says:

    US Weekly did say he’s mad at her or something like that.

    • Colette says:

      Yeah I guess why there are pics of them kissing at Jamba Juice last week.
      Trouble in Paradise #sarcasm

    • Jerry says:

      Yes, let’s believe Us Weekly because they’re so in the know.

      It’s not odd that he’s traveling. Both Brad and Angelina do more than act in movies and have outside interests.

      When he was in France for the race, he also went to Miraval, which he does every year to check on things. Who knows if the family is going to be spending any time there this year. He’ll most likely be back there when it’s time to harvest as he’s there every year for that.

      He was in NYC, OMG for business. He’s a producer on Okja, the sequel to Snowpiecer that is starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, it’s a Plan B production that is shooting in NYC. How dare he go check on Plan B productions. Who does he think he is? The owner or something?!

      He was also there with his manager, Cynthia Pett Dante. Who also happens to be one of his best friends. He’s her son’s godfather. Their families go on vacation together. Her son is good friends with Maddox, etc., as they’re about the same age and he travels with the Jolie-Pitts without his mother.

      They’re good at going under cover in L.A., they always have been. If they’re not seen then there is trouble. If they’re seen without the other, there’s trouble because how dare two people in a marriage/relationship not be with each other 24/7.

      They just live their lives, doing what they do. And they can’t seem to win either way.

      • tmc says:

        well US Weekly was where Angelina turned when she wanted to show she was not a wild child but now a responsible mom early on with Maddox so… ? Not sure what to make of it but US Weekly is not IN Touch or the Star (although both can be right at times).

      • Jerry says:


      • Colette says:

        Angelina also called out US Weekly by name for writing BS stories.

  14. Maleficent says:

    I hope it is a good movie and he actually wins an Oscar. The man’s underrated as an actor because of his looks and personal life–but ever since 12 Monkeys, I’ve been impressed with his diversity and talent.

  15. Embee says:

    Is the all-white ensemble a message? A counterpoint to Angelina’s usual all-black? Does this mean he’s the anti-Angelina or does in mean he’s the yin to her yang? WILL WE EVER KNOW???

  16. Chaine says:

    I’m sure the Daily Mail will say he is “flaunting his forearms” in that shirt.

  17. MrsBPitt says:

    There were pictures of Brad and Angie together on July 13, celebrating the twins birthday at a pancake restaurant….

    Brad looks fantastic!!!!

    • lisa2 says:

      He really does.. and those pics of them at that smoothie place. Sad that the owners sold pictures.

      he looks great. And there is nothing wrong with that shirt. He is wearing a t-shirt underneath. He can wear that shirt because his chest is HOT and he doesn’t have moobs.. He has worn hats for years.. for as long as I can recall. I saw pics of him without the hat and his hair would send me over the top. Gorgeous man always.

      It’s sad that he and Angie are judged by so many rules. If they are not seen together there are problems. If they are then they are faking it for the camera. With the kids they are pimping them. Without the kids they are neglectful parents. They can never win.. even 11+ years and they can’t win.

  18. Ana says:

    Why doesnt he take a children with him on those mistery travels? Not children friendly travels?

  19. Catelina says:

    I don’t remember seeing it posted here, but there were some security camera pictures released of B&A looking pretty snuggly together fairly recently.

    • Luca76 says:

      Yeah I saw those they looked totally fine and hot for eachother. They were just too poor quality to sell to tabs.

  20. cindy says:

    I am a fan of them both, but I do think their marriage is strained. I know we are not supposed to say so, but its just a gut feeling. I think Angelina has something serious going on with her health- whether it is an eating disorder, mental health, I don’t know. I think Brad stays because he loves her and feels loyal. I also believe that whatever issues Angelina has do not detract from her ability to be philanthropic or a good loving person and mother. Thats also why I think Brad stays. I just thinks there are problems. There. I finally said it. Hate on me, its okay, I can take it.

    • Aj says:

      Im a fan and i dont hate you for your comment, BUT why its always Angelina’s fault if there is problems in the relationship??, Yeah, why its never Brad’s fault??, Why is Brad always the victim??, , to be honest… i think Brad is the one with the problem, BUT people dont like that and prefer blame Angelina!!

      • Zut alors! says:

        You are so right. I think the reason this family works is because Angelina makes all the sacrifices. I think she and the nannies/staff do the bulk of the child rearing. She oversees their schedules and plans their activities. She’s said this in numerous interviews. Brad flits in and out as he pleases. It’s been this way from the beginning. She puts everyone else first and it’s taken a big toll on her health.

      • cindy says:

        I don’t think its Angelina’s fault. I just think she has some problems. And they effect her health and her marriage. Doesn’t mean she’s a bad person. And Brad is in no way a victim, especially not of angelina. I would speculate he is scared for her though. BUT BUT BUT this all guessing. What do I really know? All we do here is guess about a bunch of celebrities as a break from our real (and actually important and serious) lives.

    • geneva says:

      I tend to agree with Cindy…it seems strained because she seems to be dealing with problems and what I always found odd was when she had her breasts removed she apparently went for a D cup size and on her tiny frame it now looks so odd to me. I feel like she is both a progressive, smart career woman and very insecure about life in the spotlight. must make it all a bit crazy…but my sense also is they are both under strain from being in said spotlight all the time.

      • Tarsha says:

        Angelina has shown she doesn’t give a darn about her appearance, she wears a lot of black, etc. So why do you presume she is insecure in the spotlight? She comes across as the most secure celeb to me. If it is about the D cup, as has been explained on here numerous times surgeons usually advise you to go for a cup bigger because often the stuffing (in mastectomy restruction) sinks and usually the larger size settles better. That is why. Nothing to do with her being insecure. If she was insecure, she’d dress differently. She’s confident and secure in herself to have her own style.

  21. Cerys says:

    Went right off him when he took up with Angelina. She’s someone I have never warmed to. I never watch any of her movies because of that. However they seemed happy together.

    • Tarsha says:

      She is a moral good decent woman who cares about refugees and does a lot of good for the world; what’s not to like? Brad make the right choice. 11 years on, proves it.

  22. vespernite says:

    He is so hot! Damn!….that’s all I got!

  23. Bianca says:

    She’s busy writing speeches about how we should accept even more migrants.
    Or maybe she’s preparing her master’s degree course in LSE in autumn.

  24. Jaxx says:

    I couldn’t believe it when I heard they were a “thing.” Thought it was the oddest couple I ever heard of. Strangest thing happened: They brought out the very best in each other. As much as you can really know about stars, I think Brad has become a much more interesting, well-rounded person. Angelina, to me, has become much calmer, more centered so that she can concentrate on her interests in a more focused manner. And that’s just for starters.

    I saw them interviewed after Angelina had her first surgery. They had a big scare and it bonded them even more closely together. The way they looked at each other with so much love and RESPECT it awed me. You can’t fake that. They said wonderful things about each other too, and you can maybe fake the words, but you cannot make the eyes eat each other up like that unless there is real feeling behind it. When she asked Brad about how he felt about her losing her breasts? He described what “made her the woman she was to him” and it had nothing to do with her breasts. I wish I could remember the exact words because every woman would give anything for her man to speak to her like that.

    Plus, I think these two simply like each other. Somehow, in a world where love can seem as fragile as an egg, these two found each other. I pray with all my heart that it lasts. For them, and for those six children they bonded into a family. I pray it lasts.

  25. Danielle says:

    I don’t think that’s a tattoo. I think it’s K tape, which is used to support injuries.

  26. Carmen says:

    I have a feeling Brad may be going through some existential midlife crisis. It hits a lot of guys at his age and it’s probably worse when you’re rich, famous, and renowned all over the world for your sexy good looks. Sooner or later he’ll get through it.
