The Three Best & Worst Movies Starring Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt
Today's cinemaphiles have yet to come to terms with the career of one Brad Pitt. Dismissed by most as a Hollywood tabloid star, few have openly included him in the category "Best Leading Men Of All Time" where he deserves to be.

Too many have placed too much focus on his relationships with Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, rather than confronting that which we know deep down in our hearts to be true: Brad Pitt is a great actor.

He is so great that his performances in films like Snatch (2000), Ocean's 11 (2001) and Ocean's Twelve (2004) and 12 Monkeys (1995) d...

Actress Julia Roberts was reluctant to work with husband Danny Moder on a new movie - because she was distracted by the need to "look pretty". The 40-year-old met the cinematographer when he worked as camera operator for her 2000 film The Mexican - but was uneasy about shooting new drama Fireflies in the Garden because she didn't want her husband to see her looking less than her best.

She says, "(It was) nerve-wracking to start with. You know, I'm always - I just want to look pretty for him! But he's so great and supportive."

Actress Julia Roberts knew she was destined to marry Danny Moder from the moment they met - because her body told her so. The 40-year-old began dating the then-married Moder in 2000 on the set of her movie The Mexican and insists she "just knew" the cameraman would eventually become her husband.

The Pretty Woman star says, "It's the most correct decision I've ever made in my life - not that it was even a decision, because it just overtakes you. My whole body knew: 'Yes.' He's just my favorite guy."

Roberts wed Moder in 2002 and they have three kids together: two-year-old twins H...

James Gandolfini insists all mafia characters have to be fat. The 45-year-old actor, famous for his role as a mob boss in The Sopranos, insists he is too old to exercise but it doesn't matter because he needs to be overweight to play Tony Soprano.

He told Esquire magazine: "I should exercise, but I'm too old for that s**t. I lost 30lbs to play my character in The Mexican, but people don't take to skinny mafia men, and I don't feel right when I'm thin. I was voted best-looking kid in high school but, as you can see, things changed. I used to say I was a 260lb Woody Allen. You can make t...

Britney Spears can't understand why tabloid reporters have turned on her for reportedly breaking up a romance, while Julia Roberts escaped their wrath for doing exactly the same thing.
