More Celebrity Nonsense Talk
I have always failed to understand why our society pays so much attention to the opinions of Hollywood celebrities, as if they have any ability to offer rich insights into the issues of life.
This opinion was reinforced this morning by two separate news articles about Brad Pitt, both coming from the same interview:
In the first article:
Lucy and the GQ gang were invited to Brad’s place for the shoot where he talked candidly about his hopes of one day becoming a daddy.
“He seems very ready for that in a way that he didn’t used to be,” she added. “He knows that there was a time that he was all about the adventure.”
So what kind of father does Mr. Pitt think he will be?
“I’ll be able to figure it out when I get there. I have great faith in that. I’m just really aware of the responsibility of putting your life second, and your job is to show this little one around the world,” he told GQ.
In a second article from the same interview, Pitt also said:
The actor revealed to GQ magazine that he never quite bought the whole “until death do us part” thing in the marriage vows.
“The idea that marriage has to be for all time — that I don’t understand,” Pitt, 41, admits in the interview conducted not long after Aniston filed for divorce in March. “It’s talked about like it failed, I guess because it wasn’t flawless. Me, I embrace the messiness of life. I find it so beautiful, actually.”…
For a guy who has previously expressed concerns over the idea of lifelong monogamy, even before the split when he told Vanity Fair last year, “I’m not sure if it really is in our nature to be with someone for the rest of our lives.”
Brad Pitt thinks he is ready to be a father but staying married to a wife for the rest of his life is unnatural. Sounds like a man whose only experience with children consists of junkets to Africa with Angelina Jolie and her child where Pitt can drop in and play – and then go his own way. All the upside fun, none of the downside hardships, and none of the long-term responsibility and commitment.
A profoundly fake view and understanding of the real world. Kind of like making a movie isn’t it? So, again, why do we pay any attention to what Hollywood people say?
