Pitt Stop

I've never been a huge Brad Pitt fan. He's easy on the eyes, obviously, but the only movie I ever liked him in was (surprise) "Thelma & Louise" (the part called for just the amount of acting ability he has). Still, I admire his outspoken stance on various issues, most notably marriage equality. And in the new Parade magazine, he reiterates his stance:

"I have love in my life, a soul mate --absolutely. When someone asked me why Angie and I don't get married, I replied, 'Maybe we'll get married when it's legal for everyone else.' I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it -- hate mail from religious groups. I believe everyone should have the same rights. They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I've had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment."

Just "Thelma & Louise?" What about Seven? Fight Club? Interview with the Vampire? So good.

I have to agree with "Seven" - soooo creepy. Even the world's blandest woman, Gwyneth Paltrow, was watchable.

And I also agree that he brings big star quality to the issue of gay marriage!
