Gwyneth Paltrow Said Mario Batali Approved Of Brad Pitt But Not Ben Affleck

Cannes Lions 2016: Day Five

You gotta run your dates by your celebrity chef friends- EVERYBODY knows that!

As part of a Goop/Cadillac “experience,” Gwyneth Paltrow co-hosted a dinner with her BFF Mario Batali at Batali’s new Manhattan restaurant La Sirena. And yes, it sounds insufferable.

First Batali described, in vivid detail, the meal about to be served (which included a tricolore appetizer, and a choice of halibut and beef short rib for the entrée), before ceding the stage to Paltrow. “So now that we all want to have sex with our food, based on [Batali’s] description . . .” Paltrow began, and it was possible to imagine, as the crowd all chuckled, that we were inside her palatial, pristine foyer, at her home in Los Angeles, that she was about to walk around and pour us all glasses of sparkling rosé (or watch, approvingly, as someone else did). She went on to note that she and Batali had been friends for 18 years. “He was just teasing me about every boyfriend I brought to [Batali’s restaurant] Babbo over the years. He liked Brad Pitt, if you want to know. Didn’t like Ben Affleck that much.” Batali chimed in at this point with a joke about babysitters, to which Paltrow chastised, lovingly, “Shut the fuck up.” She then told a short story about Cadillacs (her grandfather Buster was an obsessive fan) before signing off: “Thank you all for giving us your Wednesday night, and buon appetito, and enjoy!”

Paltrow is the platonic ideal of a dinner host, of course; without even being able to hear what she was saying (“That’s not what they do in Majorca,” “I’m telling you, three drops of grapefruit seed extract will make a world of difference,” would be my guesses), it was clear that those speaking to her were riveted. She holds a wine glass in the effortlessly cool manner of your older cousin at Thanksgiving dinner (“One day, I hope I’ll be able to look like that,” you think). Toward the end of the dinner, she left the room so gracefully that it took a few minutes for anyone to notice it had happened.

I can hear Paltrow’s tone in my head as I read this, and it makes me violently angry. She’s like, a caricature of her own self at this point- so sure everyone cares about every little bit of her “glam” life. UGH.

They don’t make em like they used to, and Kendall Jenner should know.

Jenner, 20, took to her website and app Tuesday to reveal exactly who she’s crushing on…and sorry, dudes, it’s nobody that’s age-appropriate or of the moment. The star named her crushes (though you can probably guess via her instagram) on her website but she’s spelling it out for ya RIGHT. NOW.

According to the star, her “ultimate” celebrity eye candy, “in no particular order,” is a young Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Heath Ledger. Emphasis on YOUNG, kay?

Sorry, Harry Styles. She’s got a thing for 90’s dudes. I blame Calvin Klein.

Brad Pitt Wants Cara Delevingne To Be His “Protege?”

Cara Delevingne Launches TAG Heuer 2015 Campaign

Come again?

Brad Pitt likes what he sees in Cara Delevingne, I guess, because he wants to help her with her acting chops. Now, I saw Paper Towns and it was NOT GOOD, though maybe people are seeing her in Suicide Squad (Brad Pitt included) and are getting excited about her? All of this confuses me, but not Brad. Allegedly.

Brad Pitt has set his sights on a new leading lady in the form of budding actress Cara Delevingne, and RadarOnline.com has learned the father of six is desperately courting her for a role in one of his 40 upcoming movie projects for his film company Plan B. After having already accomplished so much at such a young age, 23-year-old Delevingne says she’s not doing fashion work anymore and turning to acting instead.

“Brad thinks Cara’s talents haven’t been explored properly and he wants to take her under his wing,” said an insider. “He’s hoping she might sign an ongoing deal with his company.”

In fact, Pitt, 52, has already offered Delevingne the lead in his World War Z sequel, but, noted the insider, the model-actress “can’t do it because of schedule conflicts.” Still, “Brad won’t give up” on scoring Delevingne as his “next big thing.”

“He’s opened his contacts book to her and given her numbers of the best acting teachers in Hollywood,” the insider told Radar. “He really thinks she’s got what it takes to win an Oscar one day.”

(Via Radar)

I’m kinda gonna call this one as BS, BUT, Brad does like to champion new talent. Apparently, he really helped out Lupita Nyong’o, even making calls to directors and producers on her behalf, and he’s reportedly done the same thing for other actors and directors too. Brad Pitt seems like a really nice dude, though I’m not sure how Cara got in his good graces…

Do you believe Brad wants to win Cara an oscar? DISCUSS.

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Moved To London!

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt at The AFI FEST 2015 Opening Night Gala BY THE SEA in LA

It’s official: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have hopped the pond.

We reported in January that the couple had planned to transplant their brood– including kids Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 9, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7- to London,and now the wheels are a-turning.

The famous family settled into a modest little eight-bedroom, $21,000-a-month rental at the end of February, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly:

They’ll stay at the “beautiful, White House–style home,” for at least six months, says the insider, while Pitt, 52, films 2017’s World War Z 2 and the Goodwill Ambassador, 40, focuses on political projects.

Nestled on the River Thames in the London suburb Surrey, the mansion, which boasts an indoor pool and gym, is just 40 minutes from pal George Clooney’s pad.

The clan has been exploring its new stomping grounds too. On March 5, Pitt took the twins to a pottery studio. A week earlier, Jolie Pitt and the younger kids visited Hamleys toy store. Adds the source, “She bought them presents for their new playroom!”

Aren’t they a little old for a playroom? Or Is that a quaint London term for “room kids use their smartphones in?” Either way, tally ho and pip pip, you guys are going to have a LOT of sticky pudding and call if you need a nanny (not THAT kind of nanny, unless you want me to be…).
