brad pitt debuts new hairstyle

Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt hit the red carpet Saturday night at the 25th Producers Guild Awards in support of the highly-acclaimed film '12 Years a Slave.'

Pitt appeared in and produced the award-winning historical drama that is nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.

The shocker of the evening occurred when the film tied with 'Gravity' for the top award, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.  It was the first time in PGA's 25-year history that two films shared the top prize.

Regarding Brad's current hairstyle featuring a decidedly close shave on the sides, the actor insists he much prefers his usual shoulder-length mop that he can pull back in a low man ponytail.

The military-styled high and tight 'do is actually for a film role.  Brad told a reporter, "It's not a choice.  It's for a part."

He and co-stars Shia LaBeouf and Scott Eastwood have been shooting 'Fury' in the UK, a World War II action-drama that will hit theaters on November 14, 2014.

Pitt's fiancee Angelina Jolie did not attend Saturday night's high profile event.  She is currently in Australia filming her latest directorial project, 'Unbroken.'

jay z and beyonce

Forbes released their 2013 list of the 'Highest Earning Celebrity Couples' and we don't think you will be surprised that Beyonce and Jay-Z landed at the top.

The A-list couple are undoubtedly two of the savviest business people in entertainment. They pulled in an estimated $95 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have capitalized on their fame in order to cash in on other lucrative business opportunities unrelated to football or modeling.  Their estimated combined earnings are reported to be $80 million over the past twelve months.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came in third with a combined $50 million. Unlike the other top couples on our list, they haven't aggressively expanded their business holdings beyond acting, but do earn a princely sum per film.

Power couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis made a whopping $35 million, while Kanye West and Kim Kardashian nipped at their heels with $30 million.

Forbes talked to managers, agents, producers and other in-the-know movers and shakers to come up with estimates for each celebrity’s entertainment-related earnings between June 2012 and June 2013. They did not subtract for taxes, agent fees or other celebrity related expenses.

angelina in berlin

Angelina Jolie was rocking a Ralph & Russo strapless silk crepe peplum dress at the Berlin premiere of 'World War Z,' while also marking her 38th birthday on Tuesday, June 4 in Germany.

It is the third stop for Brad Pitt and his wife as they travel through European to promote his new film set to release in U.S. theaters on June 21.

We hate to keeping pointing this out but ... what is up with Brad's zipper fly.  For the second day in a row, it looks like something is amiss - see Paris pics here.

This has been a tour of triumph for Angie, who underwent a double mastectomy in February, and reconstruction surgery at the end of April.

The entire Jolie-Pitt entourage dined out at Japanese eatery Kuchi to celebrate their mother's birthday.  Angelina wore a black sleeveless dress and daughter Zahara, 8, was looking decidedly glam in a shimmery pink Grecian gown and blingy flip flops.

Shiloh, 7,  wore tomboy shorts with a white shirt and loafers, while her little sister Vivienne,  4, wore a white dress featuring several layers of ruffles at the bottom.

Dressed in black t-shirts and jackets, like their famous A-lister dad, were sons Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, and Knox, 4.

See video of the family as they celebrate Angelina's birthday:

brad and angelina at paris premiere of world war z

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appeared Monday night at the Paris premiere of his latest film 'World War Z.'

The actress was rocking a custom black Saint Laurent wool sable suit that she accessorized with a black silk blouse featuring a bow at the neck.  Angelina was sporting a masculine vibe with her hands thrust in her pants pockets while posing for photographers.

She and Pitt wore their hair pulled back in pony tails ... after leaving their equally long and nearly identical tresses flowing on Sunday night during the more formal London premiere - photo gallery here.

We're not sure what is going on with Brad's zipper.   Is his fly open?

The recent red carpet outings were the first public appearances by Angelina since she underwent a preventive double mastectomy in February and reconstructive surgery in late April in an effort to prevent breast cancer.

Attending the premiere with their famous parents were Maddox, 11, and Pax, 9.  Angie told a reporter, "I'm very excited for Brad and I think it's a really fun film.  My boys are around somewhere, so they're enjoying it."

brad pitt cant remember faces

Brad Pitt revealed in the June-July issue of Esquire magazine that he is fairly certain he suffers from prosopagnosia, a condition that is often referred to as face blindness.

The actor has always had a hard time remembering faces and is concerned enough about the situation that he plans to get tested.

Pitt claims, "So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them.  I took one year where I just said: This year, I'm just going to cop to it and say to people, 'Okay, where did we meet?'  But it just got worse.  People were more offended."

He elaborated, "You get this thing, like, 'You're being egotistical.  You're being conceited.' but it's a mystery to me, man.  I can't grasp a face, and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view."

This would seem to explain why he shuns the spotlight.  Brad said emphatically, "That's why I stay at home.  You meet so many damned people.  And then you meet 'em again."

Hours after a New York Times op-ed piece revealed that actress Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction, her partner Brad Pitt talked about why she went public.

After discovering that she carried the same BRCA1 gene mutation that led to the early death of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, in 2007, the actress opted to greatly lessen her chances of developing cancer by undergoing breast removal surgery.

Pitt told USA TODAY, "I'm quite emotional about if, of course.  She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don't think anyone would have been the wiser with such good results.  But it was really important for her to share the story so that others would understand it  doesn't have to be a scary thing.  In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger."

"The experience was an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months.  And I'll tell you, it's such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a spectre hanging over our heads.  To know that it's not going to be something that's going to affect us.  My proudest thing is our family.  This isn't going to get that."

Jolie had kind words for Brad as well, "I am fortunate to have a partner who is so loving and supportive. So to anyone who has a wife or girlfriend going through this, know that you are a very important part of the transition."

The couple's six children were a big help too.  Pitt revealed, "We set up our own little post-op recovery that became pretty fun.  You make an adventure out of it."

gerard butler and brad pitt flop at box office

The latest films released by Hollywood A-listers Brad Pitt and Gerard Butler flopped during their opening weekend at the box office.

Last week Pitt's 'Killing Them Softly' earned a dismal $6.8 million while six previously released films scored significantly bigger numbers.

Unfortunately for Butler and his co-star Jessica Biel, 'Playing for Keeps' did poorly this week, pulling in $6 million during its opening weekend, also soundly beaten by five previously released films that are still raking in revenue 3-5 weeks after hitting theaters.

The popular James Bond flick 'Skyfall' topped the chart again, bringing the total gross to $261,620,000.  Other popular flicks this weekend were 'Rise of the Guardians,' 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,' 'Lincoln,' and 'Life of Pi.'

Things weren't all bad for Pitt, who earned his third Oscar nomination this year for 'Moneyball' and got engaged to Angelina Jolie.

brad pitt and angelina jolie wedding

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their engagement in April and based on recent comments, it sounds like the wedding will be taking place in the near future.

Both Angelina and Brad have publicly spoken about the full court press their six children have initiated to get them to walk down the aisle.

Last night during the premiere of his new film 'Killing Them Softly,' Pitt spoke candidly, "I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do.  I also feel like the time has come.  The time is nigh.  It's soon.  I got a good feeling about it."

Brad admits that marrying Angelina is very important, "We've had a family, we're raising the kids.  I am surprised how much the idea of marriage means to me when I've already had that."
