Random Fuzzy

Just briefly:

- I find the THR story that Brad didn't attend the Oscars because he was sculpting very funny.  The image the story conjures is of a man so consumed with his work that he never went out for a breath of fresh air -- like some mad scientist -- or artist.  Frogtown is in L.A so he could have very easily attended the Oscars.  He didn't go to the Oscars because he didn't want to go.  Unlike the texting story which his rep confirmed and clarified, this THR story didn't get a response from Brad's rep.

I made the point when they were in Crested Butte for a week and Brad still had weekly scheduled visits that he wouldn't want to be apart from them for that long and miss his visits so he had to be there with them.  The same is true now with any trip.   That is not to say that they have never spent a single moment apart, but as they did before, it will not be for more than a few days.  They were forced to live separately for months and have just reunited so even more than before they would be eager to spend time together and would avoid spending any time apart. 

There is a separate THR report that there may be some strain between Dede Gardner and Plan B which is why Gardner didn't attend the Oscars even though she is an accredited producer for Moonlight.  Brad is just an executive producer and as such was not in line for an award so I actually didn't think he needed to be at the Oscars but Gardner definitely should have been there. 

- Angelina is in contact with Billy Bob and Jonny Lee so there's nothing out of the ordinary that Brad and Jennifer text.  It's the spin that the tabloids put in it that makes it sound out of the ordinary.  Brad's source contacted People so they could clarify the Us report.  Us made it sound like it was new and recent communication.  His source said it isn't new -- they didn't just start textingI would guess they specifically objected to the implication that on or after Feb. 11 "Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split" -- because at that point they were already reunited.  He may have told her something to that effect but he said it some time ago, not last month.  And they also objected to the implication he went trough a "tangled web" of contacts to get her number.  I am sure Jennifer isn't happy about this either since she has spent an eternity trying to extricate herself from triangle stories.  And Angelina would absolutely not care about what the tabloids are saying.

Notably, neither of the stories originated from Brad or his rep. 

No actual news or updates.

I posted earlier:
How long does it take to complete a custody evaluation?
Generally the Court will continue your case for 60-90 days if a custody evaluation has been ordered. During this time the evaluator will conduct interviews, collect and review information, and write their evaluation report.
It will be 60 days since Dr. Katz's appointment on March 10.

"Also overlooked was the absence of one of the winning Moonlight producers, Dede Gardner, who now becomes the first female producer to have won two Oscars. (She also produced 12 Years a Slave.) It's unclear why Gardner did not attend the event, but rather stayed home with her kids, allowing Adele Romanski and Jeremy Kleiner (the other two producers) to take the spotlight. Gardner did not respond to a request for an explanation. One insider says there might be strain between her and Plan B Entertainment, the company she and Kleiner have headed for Brad Pitt, who also did not appear at the Oscars."

Brad Pitt didn't attend the Oscars when Moonlight — produced by his Plan B Entertainment production company — won for best picture. A source tells THR that Pitt has been otherwise engaged, holed up creating a sculpture at British artist Thomas Houseago's Frogtown studio. Houseago, a well-known sculptor repped locally by Gagosian Gallery, has many fans, including Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis and Flea. It's unclear what form Pitt's sculpture was taking, but the source added that the design fan, who had been building a substantial art collection with ex-wife Angelina Jolie, had been at it for nearly 10 days. Attempts to reach Houseago's studio were unsuccessful. A rep for Pitt didn't respond to a request for comment.


Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are keeping up with their friendship.
A source close to Pitt confirms to PEOPLE that the actors have been texting recently and continue to keep up with each other amid his split from Angelina Jolie. “They have been friends for a while and often text,” the source says.
Pitt and Aniston divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage, but the recent communication isn’t out of the ordinary — the two are just friends keeping in touch. “This is nothing new, he didn’t have to jump through hoops to get Jennifer’s number,” the source adds.


Brad Pitt
is reconnecting with his past. Amid the 53-year-old’s bitter divorce from Angelina Jolie, he has “been texting” with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, a source close to the Mother’s Day star reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

 Pitt, who didn’t have Aniston’s cellphone number (they divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage), tracked it down through “a tangled web” of contacts so he could send well wishes for her 48th birthday February 11, explains the insider. “They started talking once he wished her a happy birthday.” The Allied star — currently battling Jolie, 41, for joint custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — “has confided in Jen,” reveals the source. “Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past. ...
”The 48-year-old actress, who married Justin Theroux in 2015, spent her birthday in Cabo San Lucas,
Mexico, with her love of six years after he whisked her away on a private jet for a romantic six-night birthday and Valentine’s Day escape.
And for his part, the Leftovers star, 45, wasn’t rattled by his wife’s phone time with her ex. “Justin is OK with them being friends,” notes the insider. Besides, the source adds, he knows “Jen just wants to be nice.”


    The house of Guerlain really does not make a habit of picking celebrities to front their fragrances but with this latest launch they have broken with tradition entirely and have chosen arguably one of the most famous, and most beautiful women in the world to be the spokesperson for Mon Guerlain. I think Jolie is an excellent choice because this multi-talented woman is not only a tremendous actor, she’s also a phenomenal director too, but both of these talents pale in comparison to the huge amount of humanitarian work she has undertaken throughout her career. Having been a Special Envoy to the United Nations, Jolie has worked tirelessly to shine a spotlight on human rights and has fronted campaigns about sexual violence in military conflict zones. So what Angelina Jolie brings to Mon Guerlain is not just timeless physical beauty, but also a generosity of spirit that is very much in tune with Guerlain’s own environmental work, which has focused on sustainable procurement, eco-responsibility and the improvement of working conditions of its suppliers. The collaboration between Jolie and Guerlain feels like the perfect fit.
    For Mon Guerlain, Guerlain has been inspired by Angelina Jolie’s free-spirited nature to create a modern fragrance that is strong, feminine and free. Her tattoos have served as key inspiration, with Guerlain describing the scents as a fresh oriental that wears like an invisible tattoo.

  4. Angelina Jolie talks about partnership with Guerlain perfume brand
    In an interview for Elle Magazine, Angelina Jolie spoke of her collaboration with the Guerlain perfume brand.

    What do you like best about the aroma of Mon Guerlain?

    Mon Guerlain is sensual and can be worn at all times. I also love the mixture of cinnamon, lavender and jasmine. I do not like perfumes that are too strong or sweet, so this one fits perfectly.

    How did you accept to be Guerlain's new face?

    My mother loved Guerlain, so I always had a good relationship with the brand. The brand pleased her, and the brand attracted me. Beauty, history and quality. It is also the oldest perfume house in France, which is inspiring. I love France and when Guerlain talked to me about cooperation, I felt it was something to be considered. During her career as an actress, in which he played v arias different women. How would you explain femininity? I think the meaning of the term is personal and different for everyone. All the women I know are so incredibly different, even my daughters. But for me, personally, it is our humble side that shows genuine femininity.

    Angelina Jolie: discover the backstage of her collaboration with Guerlain
    Launched five years after La Petite Robe Noire. Delicate mission! Except for Louis Vuitton, the star never accepted to become the image of a brand, a product. In 2007, she also declined an offer from the French perfumer. But this time, as a preamble, Laurent draws his secret weapon: a box of powder " Ladies in all Climates ".
    The one that Angelina's mother, Marcheline Bertrand , died eight years ago, used daily. In 2013, Guerlain reissued it in limited edition, 400 copies, in a chic trendy chic, powdered white and gold. But this is the original that Laurent Boillot presents to Angelina, the one that her mother always kept in her bag and on her happiness-of-day. A compact, slightly ocher compact powder copper. On seeing him, She is moved to tears, remembering Marcheline: " a very natural woman, who never wore jewels, and whose light powder, with the smell of irises and violets, was the only luxury, the only make-up ." Guerlain has thus forever registered in my memory, "she confides, upset. " Since then, this brand evokes at the same time my childhood, the love of my mother and France ". Through the intermediary of this magic powder, the dialogue, at the scene of filming, in the damp and damp Cambodia, begins with the best auspices. The actress, curious asks a thousand and one questions to his interlocutor. Notably on the ingredients used in the composition of the fragrance, on their provenance, manufacturing methods and sales channels. Everything interests him,
