LONDON – Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jean Dujardin, Michael Fassbender and Gary Oldman are all dusting off their dinner jackets for this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards.
Organizers said all five actors, nominated in the leading actor category for the British Academy Film and Television Arts’ nods, are confirmed to attend on Sunday Feb. 12 in the British capital.

The fact that all nominees in the acting categories have said they’re coming is an indicator of just how close this year’s race to the podium is. But gone are the days when there are empty nomination seats at the U.K.’s premiere movie awards shindig.

ANGELINA Jolie and Brad Pitt are having problems with their oldest son!
According to reports, the couple — who raise six children together — have hired a therapist to help Pax, 7, with his aggression problems, after catching him bullying his siblings.
“He’s become something of a bully,” a source said.
“He picks on Shiloh, and even his big brother, Maddox. He’s having a tough time getting along with his siblings.
“He’s having a difficult time with the constant schedule changes and with the fact that people stare at him whenever he’s with his parents.”
Meanwhile, sources insist Brad and Angie won’t be walking down the aisle anytime soon.
“Brad and Ange may well get married but it won’t be any time soon,” said one insider.
“They are both busy with work projects and the kids so wedding plans are not high on the agenda. They have talked about it and it’s become something of a family joke. It may yet happen some day but even then it’s very unlikely to be a conventional wedding.”
“The kids ask about marriage,” he tells USA Today over a cup of cappuccino. “It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
The ‘Tree of Life’ star, 47, admits that fears about his six kids’ safety “keep me up at night.” Reflecting on what parenthood means to him, he explains, “Kids hold up a mirror to you….You can’t make excuses. You’ve got to make sure they’ve brushed their teeth and eaten a good breakfast. You want to be present if they wake up with a bad dream.”
A round-the-clock nightmare for the Pitt-Jolie brood? Paparazzi. “We’re hunted,” he says, “Our kids have to live behind a gate. Outside, there are people with cameras.”
“But I’ll take the trade-off,” he adds. “I never knew I was capable of experiencing so much love.”
Sharing a glimpse at how his large family manages a globe-trotting lifestyle, jetting between movie sets and premieres, the actor says the older ones are home-schooled, and he describes the Jolie-Pitt travel style:
“On the road, we’re a military mobile unit…. The kids have got their stuff down to one backpack, and they’re each responsible for their own bag. Mom does the packing. She’s quite gifted at that; puts in just what we need, nothing extra.”
“Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us,” he adds. “It’s not unusual for the kids to be covered in paint. We have mud fights. It’s chaos from morning until the lights go out, and sometimes after that.”
And normalcy at home includes keeping love alive between Mom and Dad.
“There are no secrets at our house,” Pitt says with a smile. “We tell the kids, ‘Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.’ They go, ‘Eww, gross!’ But we demand it.”
(CBS) Angelina Jolie has declared her commitment to partner Brad Pitt with some new ink.
The actress added to her famous arm tattoo, which lists the map coordinates of the location where each of her six children were born, with the coordinates of Pitt’s birthplace.

Jolie’s new ink was on full display Thursday when she stepped out for a photocall for her new movie, “Kung Fu Panda 2,” during the Cannes Film Festival while wearing a belted Salvatore Ferragamo beige, chiffon cocktail dress.
She first revealed the tattoo last month during a U.N. goodwill trip to the Tunisia-Libya border, which had fans wondering whether the seventh line meant she was adopting again or having another child with Pitt.
But Jolie set the record straight on Wednesday, explaining to “Extra” that the tattoo was an ode to Pitt, and not a new child.
“Well, if they know that it’s latitude and longitude, they would have figured out quickly that it was Brad’s birthplace,” she said, adding, “It doesn’t take much investigation to figure that one out. It’s Shawnee, Oklahoma.”
Jolie, 35, and Pitt, 47, are expected to hit the red carpet together next Monday for the premiere of Pitt’s film, “The Tree of Life.”
A bit of new ink on Angelina Jolie’s tattooed arm has speculators in a tizzy over the possibility that the actress may be adopting or having another child with partner Brad Pitt — rumors that are eclipsing her international altruism.
The UN refugee agency’s goodwill ambassador visited Somali refugees at the Libya-Tunisia border earlier this week while showing off a tattoo of another set of map coordinates below the numerals marking the birthplaces of her six children, WonderWall reported.
The tattoo begins “N 35″ degrees, which could point to Algeria, the blog said. Though it could also signify Pitt’s Oklahoma birthplace, In Touch reported. And a source told People that the new baby rumors were also false.
The Cleopatra star’s international brood includes Maddox, 9, born in Cambodia; Pax, 7, born in Vietnam; Zahara, 6, born in Ethiopia; Shiloh, 4, born in Namibia; and Vivienne and Knox, the couple’s 2-year-old twins who call France their birthplace.
Jolie, 35, and Pitt, 47, have squelched new baby rumors recently, though Jolie has said she is not opposed to adding to the clan.
Jolie enabled 177 people to fly back to their homelands and donated an ambulance for health efforts in Tunisia via the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
“The international community has done well to reinforce Tunisia’s remarkable relief effort,” Jolie said in a statement. “But with 2,000 people still crossing each day, we cannot let the funding dry up and need to sustain the momentum.”
Meanwhile, papa Pitt took the kids to a screening of “Hop” in Los Angeles and an Easter egg hunt.
What a fam.
The 47-year-old actor attired himself in an all-black ensemble with slicked back hair as he puffed on a cigarette while churning out scenes for director Andrew Dominik.
In the upcoming thriller, Pitt plays the lead role of Jackie Cogan – who is “a professional enforcer who investigates a heist that went down during a mob-protected poker game.”
“Cogan’s Trade” is slated to be released next year with the cast also featuring Oscar nominee Javier Bardem and “The Sopranos” star James Gandolfini, as well as Casey Affleck and Mark Ruffalo.
Scoot McNairy has landed a starring role in one of the hottest crime movies of 2012 on the strength of a super-low-budget movie he made about aliens in Mexico.
McNairy, who starred in last year’s brilliant “Monsters,” will appear opposite Brad Pitt in “Cogan’s Trade,” reported Deadline. The film will be based on the novel of the same name by George V. Higgins, the same man who penned “The Friends of Eddie Coyle.”
“Cogan’s Trade” is the story of a mob strongman hired to track down a group of guys who robbed a high-stake poker game. Here’s the official synopsis:
Cogan is called in when a high-stake card game under the protection of the Mob is heisted. Expertly, with a ruthless businessman’s efficiency, a shrewd sense of other people’s weaknesses, and a style as cold as his stare, Cogan moves with reliable precision to restore the status quo as ill-conceived capers and double-dealing shenanigans erupt into high-voltage violence.
The film will reunite Pitt with director Andrew Dominik, with whom he worked on “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.”
“Cogan’s Trade” also sports a fantastic supporting cast, with Javier Bardem, Mark Ruffalo, Sam Rockwell, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini and Bella Heathcoate all in the mix. And there’s even unsubstantiated talk that the great Bill Murray may be joining the fray.
The movie is slated to arrive early in 2012.
Hollywood actors and real life couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are hitting headlines for their recent romantic date with history. The two, who are raising 6 kids, decided to have a rendezvous with history for a change. Perhaps that’s precisely why they chose to visit The Spare Room at The Roosevelt Hotel.
The Spare Room is a parlour modelled on the 50s and therefore has a hint of nostalgia attached to it. It has been newly opened on 5th January and boasts of plenty of entertaining stuffs right from games to cocktails to luxurious sofas and settees.
Brangelina left their kids home and hit The Spare Room on the evening of 26th January. The Spare Room has two bowling lanes, backgammon tables, board games and classic cocktails. It has a touché of uniqueness since it reminds of the original room in the hotel that was discovered when a wall was knocked down.
Famous Elijah Wood was disk-jockeying on the night the ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ couple hit up. We wonder if Brad and Angie enjoyed their brush with the bowling games! And who between the two was smarter at the games?
Meanwhile, their visit to this historically designed parlour seems to have spawned a new trend. Quite a few celebs are visiting the place including the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Emile Hirsch. It is to be seen if Brangelina shall pay a 2nd visit to the latest hot spot in the town…
