Sometimes when a director and actor meet, it's a match made in movie heaven — so why wouldn't they team up again? Pairings like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have held on to partnerships for years, creating scores of wonderful films. These are the relationships I want to celebrate: that particular kinship between a filmmaker and a muse. Take a look through to see some of my all-time favorite duos.
Johnny Depp recently debuted his new short hair while doing press for The Lone Ranger, ditching the long strands we've come to associate with the actor. This is hardly the first time Johnny has chopped off his locks, and there are quite a few fans out there who prefer him with a more clean-cut look. Click through to sound off on Johnny's new look, as well as the strands of Hollywood's hottest men.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still picking out a name for their daughter, whom they welcomed on Saturday, and it seems unlikely that she'll share her moniker with any other celebrity babies. Other stars have given their kids similar names, though, like JoAnna Garcia and Nick Swisher, whose daughter, Emme, short for Emerson, has the same name that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony gave their daughter. Angelina Jolie, Gisele Bündchen, and many more have given their children the same names as some of their Hollywood peers. Click through to see which stars are on the same wavelength when it comes to baby names!
Brad Pitt may not have had fiancée Angelina Jolie by his side for the premiere of World War Z in NYC on Monday night, but he had plenty of support from family. Angelina's dad, Jon Voight, made an appearance, as did her brother, James Haven, who brought his girlfriend, Ashley Reign. Brad's own brother, Doug, walked the carpet with his wife and three kids, even stopping for a photo op with Brad.
Brad is continuing the press tour for his zombie film after kicking off promotions overseas at the beginning of the month. He had Angelina close by during his London and Berlin events, and while she hasn't been spotted in NYC yet, she was the topic of conversation during an interview Monday morning. Brad told Good Morning America that Angelina is "doing great" after surgery and that they were "really surprised and moved by how many people are dealing with the same issue, or wondering about the same issue."
Angelina Jolie has been lying low ever since she announced that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy earlier this month, but fans will soon get a chance to see her following her big news. New reports have surfaced that Angie will make her first post-mastectomy-announcement appearance at Brad Pitt's World War Z premiere in London on June 2. The couple often walk the red carpet together at their bigger premieres, so it should come as no surprise that Angelina will be supporting Brad and his new project.
The news of Angie's possible appearance in London comes just a few days after it was announced that her aunt, Debbie Martin, had passed away after a battle with breast cancer. Angelina has said that she decided to get her mastectomy — and also made plans to get her ovaries removed — after finding out that she carries the "faulty" BRCA gene, which greatly increases a woman's chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, passed away in 2007 after fighting a seven-year battle with ovarian cancer.
Angelina Jolie made headlines around the world when she announced last week that she had gotten a preventative double mastectomy earlier in the year, but her decision to wait to announce the news was surprising to some. Now, People magazine reveals why Angelina and her partner, Brad Pitt, decided to wait until almost a month after her final surgery to talk about her health crisis. A source told the magazine that Brad did "everything he could" to keep the surgery a secret, and that the two wanted to keep things low-key until she had fully healed. A family insider said, "They really wanted Angie to be able to recover and rest before they shared the story." According to the insider, the couple used early morning appointments and rental cars to avoid being discovered by the paparazzi.
Brad did a good job keeping Angie's health struggles a secret when he sat down for an interview with Esquire, which will hit newsstands later this month. However, Brad did go into detail about his love for Angelina, saying that she is "the best person." Aside from releasing a statement showing his support for Angelina, both Brad and Angie have laid low since the announcement. The two will most likely join up again on the red carpet when Brad hits the premiere circuit to promote his new film, World War Z, in June.
Brad Pitt traded his signature all-black wardrobe for a white ensemble to pose for the June/July issue of Esquire, which will debut on newsstands May 31. Brad is embarking on promotional duties for his latest film, World War Z, which hits US theaters next month, but the focus of his Esquire interview fell mainly on the importance of his family. A close friend of Brad's even shared story for the article to illustrate just how loving things can get within the Jolie-Pitt household revealing, "Once I walked in and Angie was standing there and Zahara walked up and said, 'Daddy, you're not going to start making out with Mommy again, are you?' And it's like that. This is a guy who has tried not to do any sexy scenes with other women since he's met Angelina. He's crazy about her, and she's the same way about him."
The interview was conducted before the news of Angelina Jolie's preventative double mastectomy was revealed, which Brad did not allude to during the feature. In addition to praising his long-time partner, he also spoke candidly about finding happiness and addressed the interesting reason behind why he likes to stay at home. Here's more from Brad Pitt in Esquire:
- On family: "I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven't known life to be any happier. I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big. I wanted there to be chaos in the house. There's constant chatter in our house, whether it's giggling or screaming or crying or banging. I love it. I love it. I love it."
- On Angelina: "Angie is the best person."
- On catching flak for his poor recollection skills: "So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them. So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, 'This year, I'm just going to cop to it and say to people, "OK, where did we meet?"' But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I'll say, 'Thank you for helping me.' But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, 'You're being egotistical. You're being conceited.' But it's a mystery to me, man. I can't grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested. That's why I stay at home."
Brad Pitt opened up even more about Angelina Jolie's health and cancer preventative surgeries in an interview he conducted with USA Today after his partner revealed her story yesterday. Brad kept his first statement about Angelina's double mastectomy surgeries short and sweet, but in this lengthier conversation, he delved into how their six kids coped and why it was so important to Angelina to share her experience with women around the world. Brad started:
"I'm quite emotional about it, of course. She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don't think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn't have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger."
Brad also spoke about Angelina's decision to honor her commitment to speak at the G8 summit, travel to Africa, and speak in New York "just weeks after she'd had truly major surgery" and how the family was able to "make an adventure" out of her recovery.
The saga isn't over, and just this morning the news broke that Angelina will move forward on removing her ovaries as well. As his parting words in his interview, Brad spoke about what this has meant to him, saying it's been "an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months. And I'll tell you, it's such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a spectre hanging over our heads."
