At the pre-Oscars party hosted by the Gersh Talent Agency in Chateau Marmont on Thursday, March 1 with his manager Cynthia Pett-Dante.
- Dutifully clutching a glass of cold water. As the source in the previous People report was quoted saying (possibly Pett-Dante herself), Brad isn't stupid. I'm sure he's had a sip of their newly released Miraval Rosé Côtes de Provence - 2017, the "best vintage" they've produced so far. "I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute." They will choose a right time and place for him to again be publicly seen and photographed holding a glass of wine.
- He has worn a hat or cap over his longer hair in each of the last few times he's been spotted out in public. His hair was still short when he attended the Haiti Gala in January although perhaps he was already letting it grow, together with his beard. It now reaches almost past his collar. When he reappeared after the plane incident to promote Moonlight and Allied in November 2016 it was close cropped and he had kept it that way for most of the past year and a half. He has just signed on to Tarantino's film so it isn't for the role, and filming isn't expected to start until Summer -- possibly August. Tarantino doesn't typically start filming more than a year before a film's release date. Django Unchained with Leo started filming in January, 2012 and was completed in October, 2012 for a November 27, 2012 release. Inglourious Basterds started filming October, 2008 and premiered in Cannes in May, 2009. So with an August 9, 2019 release date for Once UATIH, they could start filming in the Fall without a problem.
- He has gone through these periods, often during long breaks between films, of sporting longer hair and a beard. Carefree.
- There have been times in the past when he's appeared tanned but right now, he looks pale beside the very well-tanned Pett-Dante.
- Not mentioned in the reports is that Sam Rockwell, who Brad reportedly went to the Gersh party to support (together with Richard Jenkins), is working with Angelina as a voice actor on The One and Only Ivan. Angelina is also a producer of the film. After fellow producer Allison Shearmur, who was working on casting the film, suddenly passed away in January, it is likely that Angelina filled in. Rockwell and Jenkins are both represented by the Gersh Agency. Rockwell starred with Brad in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Brad is a producer of Rockwell's Backseat, set for Christmas release, in which he plays former President George W. Bush.
