And what did Olivia Wilde think when she first met Jason Sudeikis? Plus what is Rebel Wilson doing on top of Channing Tatum‘s lap? This and more in today’s Last Lap.
Picture this. You’re Brad Pitt. Your fiance is Angelina Jolie. It’s Valentine’s Day. The gift game is wide open. Because when you’re Brad and Angie, it means that you can get anything you want, whenever you want it so the present better be good. It better be great. It better be a private plane. Or Angelina’s likeness made out of gold and diamonds. Or a country. An island? No pressure, Brad. By that we mean, suit up, bro. Because Angelina’s already bought him a helicopter, a waterfall and a 200-year-old tree.
So what did Brad buy Angelina for Valentine’s day?
Get ready world, because the Brangelina army might be growing even larger. Star Magazine is reporting that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are expecting their 7th (!) child. A few more and they’ll have enough for their own softball team! Angie gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne in July 2008, and eldest Shiloh was born way back in May 2006. Considering the fact that they’ve also adopted three children, it’s safe to assume that these superstars are really in to the whole parenting thing.
“Angelina has been talking about having another child for years now,” a source tells Star. “But Brad kept putting his foot down because of their intense schedules and chaotic lifestyle.” Well now she’s apparently pregnant, so Brad must either have had a change of heart, or a really poor grasp on biology. “She had morning sickness and didn’t want to draw attention to herself in public,” the insider continued. “She’s focusing on the other children right now, trying to prepare them for the new baby.” In (questionable) fact, she intensely believes that the new bundle will be born a boy. “Shiloh has even determined that the baby’s name must be John,” they offer in weirdly specific detail.
In the December 2011 issue of Marie Claire, Angelina did hint that another pregnancy might not be far off. “Nothing is planned at the moment, but we just don’t know. I could end up pregnant.” But somehow we’re going to need more than Angelina just keeping a low profile to fully believe this story…for now.

People really seem to like when Mike Tyson gets humble — and we think that’s why he’s trotted out this amazing story about a love triangle involving him, ex-wife Robin Givens and Brad Pitt on more than one occasion this year. He told the tale as part of his Spike Lee-directed one man show on Broadway over the summer, and while promoting it in April, he told it on Conan. Back then, the story went like this: Mike and Robin were in the midst of their divorce in 1989, but the boxer was still making frequent house calls to the actress’ house, “hitting it” just before they’d go to their lawyers’ offices to call each other every name in the book. Except one day, when Tyson rang the buzzer and no one was home. He was about to leave when Givens drove up to the house, with Brad Pitt. He told Conan that his first thought was, “Oh, man, I ain’t gonna get no p—y,” and instead of getting mad, “I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle.”
Brad Pitt’s latest role is an unusual one: Furniture designer! The 48-year-old is teaming up with famed craftsman Frank Pollaro for a line of luxury home furnishings to be unveiled in New York on November 13th. The pieces include a 17-foot dining room table finished in 24K gold, and an epically huge bed.
Apparently Brad has been harboring secret carpentry ambitions for many years. “I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” the actor told Architectural Digest. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”
The duo hit it off when Frank was installing a custom commissioned desk in Brad’s home and caught a glimpse of his sketch book. “I asked him, ‘Why don’t we make some of this stuff real?’” Frank said. “Brad said he thought that could be fun.” But Brad is by no means the first celebrity who’s gone out of their comfort zone with a side project. Although some have succeeded more than others. Head on down to the gallery below to see a few of our favorites from over the years!
