Brad Pitt Dismissed From Jury Duty For Being “Too Distracting”

Brad Pitt Changed By Angelina Jolie Marriage

Let it be known: even BRAD PITT gets called in for jury duty!

MailOnline reports that Pitt (who turns 51 today) showed up at the downtown LA courthouse last Friday to do his civic duty…but after waiting hours for his turn in the jury box, the dismissed him, saying he’d be too much of a distraction!

Although it probably would have been hella difficult for Brad to actually serve on a jury, he actually thought it would be interesting, a Pitt insider tells MailOnline. According to LA attorney William R. Lively, however, he shouldn’t hold his breath!

“Like any other potential juror, Brad would have received a jury summons that required him to travel downtown and be interviewed by the judge or attorneys in what is called voir dire,” Lively tells MailOnline exclusively. ‘This is a system of examination whereby both the prosecution and defense have the opportunity to object to a particular juror. In most cases as soon as it’s discovered that a potential juror is a major celebrity, that person is dismissed, but that is not always the case.”

Pitt was called for jury duty back in 2003. It is not known if he actually served on a jury, but he wasn’t sent home. In fact, he wore a juror badge and had a Subway sandwich for lunch just like the rest of the normal jurors!

Angelina Jolie: Brad Told The Kids No Tattoos

Angelina Jolie: Brad Told The Kids No Tattoos

Angelina Jolie has revealed that her husband Brad Pitt has banned their six children from getting any tattoos.

In a new interview with Radio Times, she said, “They’re already asking me about tattoos. How do I say ‘No’? It’s especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He’s mush in their hands!”

In addition, she said that they both feel strongly about not letting their kids follow in their footsteps and become actors. She said, “We’ve always said, if they want to act, we won’t let them only act, because it’s not good enough. They’ll have to find a real job at the same time. But I’m hoping that when they see all of the other things in the world, they’ll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists. They’re very individual people. So I imagine they’re not going to follow their mom and dad.”

Angelina Jolie Wants To Be A Better Wife To Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Wants To Be A Better Wife To Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie is a humanitarian and a great actress, but as a wife to Brad Pitt, she thinks she can do better.

“We have moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife! I’m going to learn to cook,’ and he says, ‘Oh honey, know what you’re good at, know what you’re not.’ He knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom,” Jolie, 39, said of her new husband Brad Pitt in an interview with Tom Brokaw on Today on Tuesday, Nov. 25.

After almost 10 years together the couple decided to recommit to their union in the South of France this past August, officially tying the knot.

“It did change [things],” Jolie admitted of finally marrying Pitt. “It was in just a feeling of that security and comfort that we always had, but recommitting after 10 years together. And we were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation where we got married with our children, and they were a part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows. So it was all of us agreeing to be together and to commit to this life together — not because we had to, not because anything was missing in our lives, but because we were absolutely sure. It was really lovely, it was a lovely day.”

Now the newlyweds are filming their first movie together since 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith, a Jolie-directed drama called By the Sea.

“The first one we did together we weren’t together, and it was a comedy and it had a lot of action and it was really fun,” she recalled. “Ten years on we’ve learned a lot about each other. It was a film about a very troubled marriage, and it felt like the appropriate thing to do on our honeymoon,” she joked. “We just wanted to be free, we wanted to play, we wanted to try new things, we wanted to push each other, we wanted to be artists and see what we could make.”

They sound like every other average married couple, don’t they?

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway’s Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway's Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has a problem with buying gifts for her husband Brad Pitt in that what do you get for a man who basically has everything and then some? She tried to purchase one of Hemingway’s typewriters as a gift for her loving husband, but the seller put the kibosh on the deal entirely.

Angelina Jolie put down thousands of dollars on the last typewriter Ernest Hemingway used before killing himself … a $250,000 wedding gift for Brad Pitt … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s agent got in touch with L.A. Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who has an unbelievable typewriter collection, including Hemingway’s 1926 Underwood. Get this … Hemingway used the typewriter for his works in the late 1930s, and “For Whom the Bell Tolls” was published in 1940.

We’re told Jolie initially wanted to buy his Tennessee Williams typewriter but he wouldn’t sell it. So then the agent asked if Soboroff would sell one of the 2 Hemingway typewriters he owned … they offered a quarter of a million bucks and it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.

We’re told this summer the agent sent a deposit check from Angelina’s production company — Chivan Productions — for $11,000, but at some point she had a change of heart and cancelled the deal. She didn’t even ask for the money back, but we’re told the check was returned.

BTW … Soboroff has a number of epic typewriters, including those owned by the Unabomber, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, and he just snagged Jerry Siegel’s, who used the typewriter to create Superman!

Now that the deal has gone south, I am kind of curious about what she found to replace such an epic gift. What do you think?
