Brad Pitt has kindly donated one his owned and worn Gucci Bow Ties which he has signed. Other top celebrities who have been “positive role models” to the campaign, International Men Days 2012 theme, include One Direction and Damian Lewis as well as international stars Katy Perry and Killers front man Brandon Flowers.
Enthusiastic fans eager to get their hands on their favourite stars item can go online to bid from Monday 19th November until Sunday 25th November via the Cahonas Scotland eBay store by visiting the link www.loosenupauction.com. All money raised will help Cahonas Scotland to advance education of the public in matters relating to male cancers and to undertake where necessary the prevention of discrimination and stigma arising from diagnosis and the cancer experience.
Commenting on the launch of this years ‘Loosen Up’ campaign, Cahonas Scotland Founder and Chair, Ritchie Marshall said, “As a charity focussed on positive men’s health, we at Cahonas Scotland fully support International Men’s Day, and particularly this year’s theme of positive role models for men. We would like to thank the many celebrities who have taken the time to engage with us, learn more about what we do and support our year end fundraiser, the Loosen Up Auction 2012.”
“With their support and generosity we will make a real difference to the profile of men’s health issues in 2013.”
BAFTA says it is expecting the full complement of nominated names in British capital for Feb. 12 ceremony.
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.
And the leading actress nominations are also scheduled to set the fashion flashbulbs popping on the ceremony’s red carpet with Bérénice Bejo, Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Tilda Swindon and Viola Davis all rsvp’ing to say they’ll be there.
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.
Hosted by Stephen Fry, the ceremony is scheduled for broadcast on BBC One at 9.00 p.m. with a special red carpet show aired on BBC Three at 7.30 p.m., hosted by Edith Bowman.
Other nominees confirmed to date include Adam Deacon, Chris Hemsworth, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain, Jim Broadbent, Jonah Hill, Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Kristen Wiig, Lynne Ramsay, Michel Hazanavicius, Octavia Spencer, Ralph Fiennes, Tom Hiddleston and Tomas Alfredson.
Organizers also said Martin Scorsese will be on hand to pick up a BAFTA Fellowship and John Hurt, recipient of the outstanding British contribution to cinema plaudit, will also be there.
Other familiar faces set to boost media and public interest include Anil Kapoor, Bérénice Marlohe, Billy Bob Thornton, Chris O’Dowd, Christina Hendricks, Christina Ricci, Colin Firth, Cuba Gooding Jr, Daniel Radcliffe, Gillian Anderson, Hayley Atwell, Helena Bonham Carter, Henry Cavill, Holliday Grainger, Jeremy Irvine, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jon Hamm, Naomie Harris, Noomi Rapace, Paul Bettany and Penélope Cruz.
Actor Brad Pitt says he and partner Angelina Jolie like to bike around New Orleans, and he enjoys seeing the energy-efficient homes his Make It Right Foundation built for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
“In New Orleans, the people are great. They leave Angie and me alone,” Pitt says in an interview on the New Orleans Times-Picayune’s website. Despite the paparazzi that often trail them, he says: “Everybody treats us like neighbors.”
“The Lower 9th is now the greenest — I don’t even like the word green — it’s the most high-performing clean neighborhood in the world, according to the Green Building council,” he says.
Pitt, who has a home in the French Quarter and is now there for Katrina’s fifth anniversary events, says he was drawn to the city because he found it “sexy and sultry.” He was interviewed by historian Douglas Brinkley, a longtime friend.
In 2006, Pitt’s non-profit foundation commissioned 13 architecture firms to design affordable, eco-friendly houses and has since built 30 in the Lower Ninth Ward, according to Brinkley. Here are excerpts of his interview with Pitt, as provided to the Times-Picayune
Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie will make her debut as a film director in the GK Films production of a feature film set during the Bosnian war.
British film company GK Films said that Jolie will not be onscreen in this love story.
Angelina Jolie was in Bosnia recently with two of her six children, the two-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox. She met with political leaders there about the plight of war refugees from the Bosnian War which occurred between 1992 and 1995. She was also seen scouting locations in Budapest over the weekend so that her family can be together while she is working.
Jolie is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). In a released statement she said, “I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can.”
Casting will be exclusively “various ethnicities of the former Yugoslavia.” Since Brad’s not from the former Yugoslavia, the presumption is that he won’t be in it.
So far no start date for this movie has been disclosed. Will Angelina Jolie cast Brad Pitt in her new movie?
