What came first, the chicken or Brad Pitt?
Answer: the chicken, because Brad Pitt’s zealousness about cage-free chickens seems like, very new to me. Anyway, the actor is mad that Costco is using caged hens, and decided to write an open letter to the company’s CEO, Craig Jelinek, to express his rage.
Here’s an excerpt from the letter (full thing can be read HERE):
“As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings. In these cruel cages, the animals’ muscles and bones atrophy from years of immobilization. That’s why the cages are illegal in most of Europe, and why California banned the cages by an overwhelming vote years ago.”
In short, cramming hens into cages for their entire lives constitutes cruelty to animals, and animals deserve better. As you know, many major corporations, from Burger King to Unilever, are getting rid of cages — and Whole Foods hasn’t sold eggs from caged hens in years.
I admire Costco’s many positive social commitments. You’ve shown great courage and integrity on a range of issues. Won’t you please extend that sensibility — and basic decency —to chickens?
Not a bad letter- very polite. I hope Costco listen because I love me some Costco and you KNOW I’ll eat my way through a dozen eggs.
What do you think of his letter?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading out of New Orleans…
The power A listers are selling the New Orleans mansion they bought after Hurricane Katrina, and it’s not quite clear if they’re headed for a different state or WHAT.
As you’ll recall (and like many of Angie’s causes) the two swooped in after 2005’s hurricane Katrina and became extremely active in rebuilding the community. They bought the mansion a year later for $3.5 million and said they would remain embedded in the community.
Brad and Angelina were true to their words and spent a substantial amount of time in the city with their family.
But now they’re moving on, selling the 5 bedroom, 3.2 bathroom home in the French Quarter. We’re told the house has Brad Pitt’s touch … which is awesome, because he’s an architectural aficionado who has masterfully restored a number of notable estates. TMZ reports that Brad and Angelina have listed the home at $6.5 million.
So will they stay or will they go now? Weigh in BELOW!

Celebrities were spotted on the go, catching flights, promoting new projects and running errands.
Brad Pitt was caught by the photogs as he hopped a flight out of LAX this weekend. Brad was looking good, dressed in all black and wearing shades and a fedora as he made his way to the plane.
Kelly Clarkson stopped by ABC Studios for an appearance on “Good Morning America” today. She’s promoting her new music and took time to sign autographs for waiting fans.

Of course there was more to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s marriage than we thought…
Apparently, the A list couple were officially husband and wife long before they tied the knot last summer, Angi revealed to Italian magazine Io Donna.
“Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California,” Jolie, 39, revealed to the mag, which accompanies the Saturday, Jan. 10 edition of the Corriere della Sera. “As Americans, we couldn’t marry legally in France.”
The Unbroken director (who was in Italy yesterday to meet the Pope at the Vatican) explained how the low key nuptials went down.
“One day I said to Brad, ‘Let’s meet up at 4:30 pm?'” she told Io Donna. “I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents.”
Still, the pair wanted a formal ceremony for their kids.
“It was very much a family affair,” their rep later told Usabout the wedding, which included designated roles for each Jolie-Pitt kid. (Eldest sons Maddox and Pax walked their mom down the aisle, Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers, and Zahara and Vivienne “threw petals from the garden.”)

Wow, a big year for Ang- wedding, directorial debut. 2015 has a lot to live up to!
