Brad's Getting Too Political
Ever since Brad Pitt started things up with Angelina, he just won't seem to shut his yap. It's either about adopting third-world children, gay marriage, or his latest, anonymity on the set of his latest film, and the anti-American attitude overseas.
Alright, so the anonymity thing isn't that tragic. He was only saying that shooting the movie in the remote Moroccan desert was a relief; it finally made it possible to shed his celebrity status and be a normal person. The village they were in had no electricity, so they ran a line for the film, and he thought it was nice they production could leave the lights there afterward for the people who lived there. I can understand his desire for privacy. And it's great that helping people gives him such satisfaction. It's admirable.
But now he's also babbling about the anti-America is across the globe. A group of...get drunk Dutchmen...threatened to kill him because of his heritage. He almost ran over them with his little bike, and they called him a "fucking American" and said, "we'll fucking kill you." So now Bradley is terribly concerned with the way America is preceived in other countries. He says:
"I'd never come face to face with that before - that turn in the way we are preceived in other countries."Ummm...I think that's been going on for a looonnnngggg time. It may have something to do with the image projected by hot blonde movie stars with fuck-me blue eyes and rock hard bodies who make zillions of dollars while the rest of the world starves.
