Hollywood’s troubling pay gap problem doesn’t only apply to gender; it also applies to people of color. And when you’re both a woman and a person of color, that salary discrepancy can be twice as offensive. Just ask Empire star Taraji P. Henson, who detailed her egregious experiences with Hollywood’s pay gap in her new memoir, which reveals that she was paid about two percent of what Brad Pitt made on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button — and that’s just the start.
Centuries from now, when the world is covered with water and humanity is extinct and the end of A.I. Artificial Intelligence becomes a documentary, the future computers trying to understand our civilization from the pop culture we’ve left behind will scratch their robo-heads at Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Ancient records speak of the rise of some kind of symbiotic organism known as “Brangelina,” and then some years later its dissolution. The robots uncover an enormous amount of fascination in this creature. There are thousands of pictures of this two-headed being smiling, looking glamorous, in front of backdrops festooned with corporate logos. Separately, the individuals that comprised Brangelina made many movies, but they appeared together only twice: In 2015’s By the Sea and in 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Then and now, the film is one of the stranger works made in Hollywood in the 21st Century.
For the majority of his appearance on Zach Galifianakis' painful, funny, and painfully funny 'Between Two Ferns,' Brad Pitt seems to be losing out to his host in a big way. At one point, he appears to be trying to hide behind an actual fern. Later, Louis C.K. comes out and stares dismissively at the superstar. Galifianakis calls Pitt's latest film 'Furry.' It's pretty standard 'Ferns' stuff, and Pitt takes it like a champ.
Ah, the magic of dance! Expressions made through movements of the body! Words don't matter! Wait-- is that Brad Pitt?
Instead of lining up the Hollywood superstar for a standard sit-down chat, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon had another plan for 'Fury' star Pitt on last night's show: a "Breakdance Conversation." Who needs words when you have cardboard, an old warehouse, and -- let's be real here -- super talented stunt doubles? This just might be the best Brad Pitt interview ever, if only because when Pitt really is dancing, he displays a natural grace that's a lot more interesting than a series of on-set stories about that time Shia LaBeouf pulled out his own front tooth in the name of art.
