Favorite Birthday Boy #2 for December 18th Brad Pitt
What do you say about one of Hollywoods legendary actors and hunks. Brad is without a doubt the Robert Redford of his generation. Like Redford, Brad has worked hard to move beyond the 'hunk' label showcasing his talent in projects that show off his acting chops and not just his looks. Brad, again like Redford has used his fame in ways deserving of respect for his work to help others, most notably his work recently with the victims of Katrina. Happy 45th Brad! I am looking forward to going to 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button', the promos hit me emotionally and I hope the movie lives up to all I have read.
One of my favorite Brad Pitt movies rarely get mentioned when his acting is discussed. I really loved '12 Monkey's' and thought Brad's performance was great. It was one of the first projects that had me looking beyond his looks and looking at his acting talents.
