What's With All The Hate For Brad Pitt?

Reading through the World War Z thread and couldn't believe the number of people who put the guy down.

Do any of you recall that he donated over $100K toward the defeat of Prop 8 in California. He also famously stated that he would not get married until gays and lesbians were also afforded the right to marry.

There are a lot of people out there deserving of a certain amount of disdain, but he certainly is not one of them.

Lay off, why don't you?

R1, what is a fame whore? A person who will do anything to be famous? He is a major movie star of course and that makes him famous. But I see no proof that he seeks fame for the sake of fame. And is there something wrong with being famous?

There's not much hate for Brad Pitt. But hate for OP, the Hate Troll, is a whole different story.

by Anonymousreply 606/18/2013

I submit that he can act as well, if not better, as about 75% (or more) of the so-called "actors" today. Today, all you have to do is be on a reality show or in a singing competition and the next thing you know, you've got a starring role in a movie. Long gone are the days when people actually pursued the craft of acting and strived for even a modicum of perfection.

As for being a "fame whore", he is far less so than most other notable celebrities.

My only problem with Brad is that he chose to hook up with AJ, who most definitely IS a fame whore. He should have stayed with Jennifer, imo.

He's an idiotic cunt. Angie is one messed up bitch. Anyone who fucked Billy Bob Thornton must have a few screws lose.

R9, Brad dumped Namaste Girl when he was informed she cheated on him. Not the other way around. The she started all this trash talk about him which didn't go down well in an industry that quite likes Brad. He never looked back as is probably for me the most enviable quality of straight men - they just move on and forget them bitches.

R10, I'll wait until I see it before I decide if it "ruined" the book. I really enjoyed the book but I don't think it was some masterpiece of writing - it wasn't. The book also had chapters I found deadly boring.

When I bought the earlier written Zombie Survival Guide I couldn't make it through because it was just too silly and juvenile. As you say the book was pretty useless as a template for a movie but I'll see what elements they've retained and even if they just get the essence of the book (an apocalyptic plague as seen from various parts of the world) I'll probably be happy.

I doubt very many people hate Brad Pitt. But we get our Brad Pitt trolls just like we get our Angelina Jolie trolls. It's just their thing - hardly affects real world views of them.

Paltrow was (or is?) notoriously slutty. I know someone who knew her in her in her teens (high school). She was a tramp. Not surprised she cheated on Pitt.

by Anonymousreply 2106/18/2013

I hate him because his success is so undeserved - he's a sad excuse for an actor and diminishes every film he appears in. He's also had endless flop films, yet Hollywood continues to believe he has "universal appeal" and gives him all the good roles, while it drops actors with talent after one or two turkeys. Why won't this no-talent go away, and give some real actors a chance to shine?

Oh, and I don't hate him for sleeping his way to the top the way he has, I rather admire him for it. At least he's good at something.

by Anonymousreply 2206/18/2013

I don't hate him. I don't dislike him either.

I'm very disappointed that he's been given so many exceptional opportunities, and he's always so damn lackluster.

I've come to believe the problem is that while he's really not very bright, he loves to play intelligent guys. It worked much better when he was young and pretty because it was easier to overlook his weaknesses. Now I watch him and mentally make lists of actors who could have played his character better.

by Anonymousreply 2306/18/2013

Totally agree with R22. He is bad actor and his bland personality can't makeup for his shortcomings as an actor. You have to ask, who exactly did he sleep with to have such longevity in the business considering that he has no on screen presence or off screen presence? There is a clear difference between him and actors like Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio. I never thought Johnny was a great actor but there is something about him that draws your attention. The same with Leo. Pitt is a total empty suit and he was nerver that great looking. So why is this guy still working and gets good roles?

What it factor? I think the only reason why Pitt lasted this long is because of the high profile relationships with famous actresses that kept him in the press. If It hadn't been for his relationships with Paltrow ,Aniston and Jolie he would have been forgotten along time ago.Do you really think his acting ability is the reason why hollywood gives him the time or day? Its a total myth created by the media like Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, E! and Vanity Fair that he some great leading man.

R28, I disagree. I think Pitt is a great movie star and has charisma for days. It's a matter of opinion. No big deal that you don't agree. I don't think Brad is a great actor, so of course I don't think that's why he's still around after all these years. Since when does that matter for matinee idols? No one claims his Daniel Day Lewis. He's like Tammy, Keanu, George, Leo, Johnny. Movie stars. Not thespians.

And I think Paltrow and Aniston benefited from his fame, not the way other around.

In the end, who really cares? If you don't like him don't see his films. Problem solved!

by Anonymousreply 3206/18/2013

Once in a while Brad Pitt plays a role that fits his appearance, and his personal energy, and he can be very enjoyable (Fight Club, Jesse James film...). But for every role like that there are ten when he struggles to create a portrait. Most of the roles he plays are simply too big for his talent. For example, I think the role he plays in Moneyball was shrank by his single-minded portrayal. Same goes for his portrayal of the abusive father in The tree of life.

Pitt is always on the surface as an actor. There is no "there there."

He comes across as super dumb in interviews.

by Anonymousreply 3306/18/2013

No, r31. Leo is the thesp of the bunch, teen idol be damned. He can act circles round movie stars Pitt/Depp/Cruise/Roberts in his sleep.

But as much as I dislike him, you're right. He is a classic charisma movie star.

We don't really have any like him or Depp among the new generation. Reluctant Gosling maybe closest (he's more Depp-esque). And Channing Tatum seems the new Brad on paper, but isn't big on the Hollywood game and more a simple stay at home dad type.

Alot of people on Datalounge simply detest good looking successful people. It reminds them just how barren their own little failed lives are. If you can't lift yourself up, tear down someone who did make a success. Brad will continue to make films, go about his philanthopic causes, and make a lot of money. His detractors about that on Datalounge. That's all they have in life. Kinda sad.

by Anonymousreply 3906/18/2013

Mainly, he gets roles that should go to actors with talent to do them justice.

As for the one hundred thousand gift, or any monetary gift, he can write that off in his income tax. He still travels first class, eats out anytime, has several homes, cars, and money that we can only dream about. So the gifts are also gifts to himself, in that they're career-motivated.

He can be a very good actor when he chooses his roles wisely as can Cruise and Depp when he stops playing cartoon characters.

Brad is very charitable guy unlike his contemporaries and puts his money where his mouth is unlike DiCaprio, Depp or that Scieno freak Cruise.

He was pretty and got lucky. But pretty doesn't last forever. Talent does. He doesn't have any. The Anniston-Jolie nonsense did more for his career than any role he ever played.

He's a no-talent who coasted on his "looks." I, for one, don't find him attractive nor did I ever, even in his youth.

That said, him buying the rights to a book written by a mixed (part black) woman and then casting his skank lover as the lead was highly offensive. She was in blackface for A Mighty Heart. She put bronzer on and a curly-haired wig. I don't care about her philanthropy or the fact that she adopted a black child. There were tons of mixed and competent actresses (Angelina is mediocre at best) who could have portrayed Mariane. The media barely mentioned.

There are few roles of substance at all for women relative to roles for men and for women of color, it's even harder to come by. So, for asshole Pitt to hire his lover to play a mixed woman with obvious black ancestry was despicable. When asked about it, the fact that women of color have difficulty getting good roles, he said this wasn't the movie to deal with it. How convenient armPitt!

The argument that Mariane sanctioned it, sorry but it's irrelevant. armPitt bought the rights, she sold him the rights because she wanted Daniel's story to be heard. That was her priority. I don't know how much it made at the box office, I don't remember it being a hit but it might have made less money with a mixed actress like Thandie Newton. But, it's hardly the point. Should Russell Crowe have played Muhammed Ali because he would make more $$$ at the box office?

As for hate, I dislike him.

He's got very little acting talent. He's had so many bad portrayals that people love to laugh at. Brad Pitt as Achilles in Troy LOL, I remember his accent going between british, australian and a few others. Irishman in Devil's Own, even his co-star mocked him and there are many others. Kudos to them for their philanthropy. They don't owe anybody anything as far as charity. But, I believe EVERYONE should be charitable especially the 1%ers. For all their charity, there's excess. No one needs a house worth over $10 000 000, that's 8 figures. No one! How much good could come from that. It was great that he donated 100K to stop Prop8 but it didn't break the bank and was the right thing to do.

I think it's funny when exceptional looking assholes like these two are convinced that their wealth and fame is derived from anything other than their physical attributes. Like Angelina the UN Ambassador....give me a fucking break.

It's like the good looking guy at work whose every word is given more weight simply because people are mesmerized by how pretty he is. And he has been given this elevated treatment for so long that he actually believes in his own "brilliance". To me, that is Brad & Angelina in a nutshell.

And I don't personally find them attractive, either. Both are the products of major plastic surgery. BUT, they fit the conventional mold of what constitutes "beauty" in this culture (although time is running out for both of them, surgical interventions notwithstanding).

I played hockey and soccer until my early thirties. My nose was a bit busted and fucked up.

I shopped surgeons and settled on the one who did all the nose work for the Toronto Maple Leafs. I am Italian and was perfectly happy with the nose and everything else that god gave me, but I did not have that nose no more. OK. So I told the surgeon I did not want a perfect nose like Brad Pitts'. He seemed to understand.

When I was in the recovery room, the nurse said the operation went well and that my nose looked just like Brad Pitts. I drifted off.

Well it does look like his so I like him now. He's a babe. Baby has ass with a rump bump golden spot for Italian dick cum deposits.

It's not just that the media barely mentioned it, R70, it's that many in the media were actively shutting down anyone who DID mention it. Complaints about Jolie in blackface were shot down by film critics who had what seemed like a pre-planned list of talking points to excuse the gaffe. Even Roger Ebert -- who was married to a black woman -- played down the blackface in his review, saying it was just "changing her appearance" on par with making Jolie look pregnant. Yeah, because a fake belly bump is the same thing as blackface.

You'll notice audiences stayed away in droves, though. No matter how much the PR machine went into overdrive on Mighty Heart, the fact is that normal people not interested in sucking up to Hollywood's biggest power couple (at the time) had no interest in a ditzy white fame whore wearing cork and a 'fro wig in hopes of getting another Oscar.

The hight of his hotness was in Spy Games with Robert Redford. I find Pitt a more enjoyable actor than RR, even though Redford is smarter, he always plays the same guy. Loved the movie though and thought it was underrated.

I also like him in more comedic roles. He has good timing.

Oh, I don't hate him, but his career represents everything that's wrong with the modern American movie industry. He's spent 20 years beating more talented actors out of roles, because he's photogenic and always has a famous girlfriend to keep him in the press. He can't act for shit and diminishes every film he appears in, but keeps making appearances because he's a Master Famewhore, and a model for every media whore who came after him.

Worse, he's in a position to be The Last Movie Star. The American film industry is fading and movie stars are dying out, as it becomes increasingly clear that no actor is a reliable box-office draw in today's world. One after another the big stars are fading away as they pile up flop after flop, and Pitt keeps managing enough hits to stay afloat. And every one of those hit films would have been better, if someone else had played his role.

R97 Spot on!

I always thought it was so strange than the overwhelming majority of A-listers are terrible actors. Clooney, Tom Cruise, Depp, DiCaprio, Affleck, Tatum, Pitt of course, none of them is better than merely mediocre. I guess you can't fool the public for that long. Making all these lame guys Alisters just shows you how terribly unimaginative Hollywood is.

[quote]Brad Pitt is at least partly straight

R67, the word would be bisexual, not 'at least partly straight'-- and bisexuals are in our community, not your straight one. Even closeted bisexuals, though many of us wish they'd come out, already.

Pitt was outed more than a decade ago, definitively and repeatedly, and backup details were given. It's just that the more famous a celebrity gets, the more the facts fade into the background for straight people and the media.

If LGBT people dislike him, it's not because he's straight, that's for goddamn sure. Only straight idiots are buying that lie.

How was he outed r99?

by Anonymousreply 10110/12/2013

There are lots of talented actors and yet this asshole gets movie roles just because he's a pretty face (which he's not) who can't act to save his life. Brad Pigg is the definition of a bad actor.

by Anonymousreply 10210/13/2013

I agree with you, OP. I think he has worked very hard on the acting part of his career and he's improved greatly over time. He must be good to work with because people continue to want to work with him. He turns 50 this year, so to compare him with younger men looking for roles isn't valid.

by Anonymousreply 10310/13/2013

He completely sucks at acting. He is - or was - only an Alister, because he hooks up with famous girlfriends and markets his private life, and his kids to stay in the news. He and Angelina are the prime example of what is wrong with Hollywood industry!

[104] You're right on the money.

by Anonymousreply 10510/22/2013

I've become obsessed lately. I watched fight club and seven back to back. Fight club mid to late 90s was his golden era. I YouTubed interviews and read old interviews from the 90s. One YouTube video one of his first he comes off very cocky and self absorbed - he looks 18, I was floored when I found the age of the interview was 27.he did not age I. The 90s , he basically stayed the same person. He's always been aware of his looks, in almost every interview it's brought up. He Always downplays it and knows people will hate him because of his genetics. He's a definite searcher type of personality. What I like most about him is that he's naturally the most masculine and self aware celebrity out there. He doesn't even seem to want to be a movie star. He just doesn't try to impress anyone or his target audience period. It was his idea to wear dresses for his rolling stone interview for fight club. He is so aware of his public image he likes to mess with. In an age of narscasists and instagram and sexy faces and shirtless gym selfies, there will never be a movie star like him in the future. No one comes close and I don't think anyone ever will. Yes I know he's getting old now, but goddamn. Being sexy is something natural, it's not made in a gym or with clothes or planning your image. Sexiness is just effortlessness. Pitt has it in spades. He is the sexiest man of all time. For people say he's overrated, I disagree. He hit the jackpot in genetics, and with great power comes great responsibility. No one will ever know what it's like to be Brad Pitt because there is no one that comes close. END

I agree with most of what you wrote, R106, except his being the "most masculine...celebrity. It's precisely his ambiguous gender qualities that make him attractive to a wide range of people.

by Anonymousreply 11009/18/2014

What ambiguous qualities though? Yes he is I guess a pretty guy. But he's not like a zac efron or some guy with perfect eyebrows and wears lip gloss. I read that he has the ideal meal face in terms of attractiveness. Scientists made a program to determine symmetry and ideal features and he scored like a 9.89. And his look always evolves long hair, facial hair, buzzed head. He looks amazing no matter what. His style is always with the modern times too. Grunge, hipster, granola. He's now sporting a 70s stache watch that become a huge trend soon. Like I said he plays with what is macho and what is pretty. That's why his fight club photo shoot is my favorite. I've never seen a man so masculine in a dress. And it was his idea entirely.

hes a goodlooking guy and married to a very helpful woman(a real humanitarian, not like bono, sean penn, etc), and hes supposed to be a real nice guy. Of course people will bash him on here.

I believe Keanu Reeves never wanted to be a movie star, and is in the process of wandering away from it all, but not Pitt! Pitt has worked too hard to maintain his status, onscreen and off. He's been through many lean years, had strings of flop after flop, and maintained his celebrity status through his relationships with Gwynneth, Jen, Angie, etc. He is the model of the modern famewhore, and an absolute master of the craft. He is a master user, on both the personal and professional levels.

I can see why people think he's a hottie, but damn. If you think he's just some aw-shucks regular Joe then you're an idiot who believes anything the PR people tell you! Careers like his don't happen without near-monstrous levels of drive, ambition, and strategy. (Same for Jennifer Lawrence, who is the latest to imitate his just-a-regular-guy-who-got-lucky image.)

by Anonymousreply 11509/18/2014

r115 doesn't he live in new Orleans? doesn't he barely do movies? Him and Angelina don't even really brag about their humanitarian work, like bono and Madonna. Jennifer aniston really wasn't an a lister till she started getting piped down by him(Hes also the much better looking one of the 2). I agree about jlaw though. Pitt probably wanted to be an actor and even enjoys fame, but he doesn't really seem like a fame whore. They're all thousands who fit that term better.

by Anonymousreply 11609/18/2014

Who the fuck thinks Keanu is attractive? No thank you. He's like a bargain bin Johnny Depp. Now Johnny Depp is over rated. Pitt is not

by Anonymousreply 11709/18/2014

Brsd needs to be introduced to a bar of soap.

by Anonymousreply 11809/18/2014

Now Keanu is a BAD ACTOR- ONE NOTE.

Johhny Depp is gross, an asshole, pretentious, alcoholic, druggie.

Brad Pitt- has played a variety of roles from quirky (12 monkeys) to family man (world war Z) and produces great movies. He keeps his drug use (if any) -under control. And unlike Johnny D, does not have gossip of being abusive to his girlfriends.

Brad Pitt for the win!

by Anonymousreply 11909/18/2014

I disagree R114, I don't think he's ambitious and driven at all, that's why he gets backlash. He does not care about being a celebrity at all. Bradand Angie are not Kim and Kanye. They don't have huge weddings and whore about their lavish lifestyle. I think Brad would be fine with everything if he never made a movie again. You can tell by his choices that he does the roles he wants to do and not vice versa. Imagine if you were an actor and Brad was your competition, you would probably quit because not many in the walking around population have his looks or charisma. If you were a casting director you would be able to tell he has "IT". And of course people backed him in his early career it's like backing a stallion instead of a donkey. Cream always rises to the top. His passion is architecture by the way not acting. He is more into creating things that way. I think acting is only a side hobby for him now. His 2013 Esquire article made me change the way I perceive him.

by Anonymousreply 12009/18/2014

r119 agree completely, although Keanu seems like a very nice guy. Pitt does branch out in roles, im not a fan per se but theyre much worse actors.

I like him and he was good in Moneyball. There is one reason he is super famous, Thelma and Louise. That was a starmaking moment and though I agree he has some simian features he was beautiful. Otherwise, he is an okay actor.

by Anonymousreply 12609/19/2014

Interesting he is smug in a way. Why do people think he is so fame hungry on here? How do you get to that conclusion? What has he done that makes him fame whore-y?

Brad is directed by his wifey for 'By the Sea'. Jolie wrote and directed the film in which she plays the lead as well. Talking about narcissism...
