Brad Pitt’s New Furniture Line Joins Our List Of The 20 Weirdest Celebrity Side Projects

Brad Pitt launches new furniture line

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!

Serena Williams Is Today’s Olympian To Watch, Because We Just Remembered Why We Love Her


We’ve always known Serena Williams has got it goin’ on. From forehands to fashion, Serena knows how to do it all. But during the Olympics this year, she’s done her best to remind us just how much ass she kicks. As we post this, she’ll be taking her talents to the singles finals of the 2012 Olympics (9 a.m. ET), competing for the gold against Maria Sharapova. And basically right after that, she and sister Venus are scheduled to compete in the doubles semifinals. Hopefully you got a chance to catch her previous matched this week, like yesterday’s, when she demolished No. 1-seeded Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-2. It definitely took our breath away. Williams has lost only 16 games through the past five rounds and has won 12 consecutive matches. She’s also won 14 Grand Slam singles championships, the most of any active woman.

Of course, her recent victories aren’t the only reasons we love Serena. Here are a few more:

1. She is always winning in style. Flaunting her trophy and her athletic bod while striking a pose.

2. She’d be so much fun to bring along with us to the beach this summer. You can build sandcastles on us next!

Your Mega Peek Into The 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

We all know that the Vanity Fair Oscar Party is almost as big as the Oscar ceremony itself. And just as brights were a major Oscars 2012 trend, it was the same as the party. Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore a juicy, tangerine Antonio Berardi dress while Cameron Diaz went more orange with a Victoria Beckham number. Kate Upton, a pregnant Molly Sims, Salma Hayek, Abbie Cornish and Diane Kruger all wore shades of crimson.

It’s just a straight-up roll call of celebrities here: Elizabeth Olsen in black Christian Dior, Sofia Vergara in a white Robert Cavalli column, Brooklyn Decker in nude, beaded Valentino and Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana. See what we mean? We’re not too sure about  Zoe Saldana in her black, sheer Marios Schwab or January Jones in her Wes Gordon green-and-burgundy confused dress. Or Elizabeth Banks and her green-and-blue feathered Chadwick Bell dress.  Jennifer Lopez wore the same designer as her Oscars dress, but this plunging, sparkling, plum version was even sexier.

Venus Williams Bottoms Out At French Open

AFP ReportersThe rest of the world is currently talking about Venus Williams‘ risqué lingerie looks that she’s sporting at the French Open this week, but personally, we’re too busy staring at her butt. Let’s get real here: sure, her black and red nightie is unconventional and worlds away from the polo shirt and skort of the olden days of tennis, but we can’t be the only ones who thought she forgot her underpants, right? During round one of the Open, Williams faced off against Swiss player Patty Schnyder, and we’re guessing that Schnyder’s happy that Venus’ outfit overshadowed the fact that she lost to Williams in two sets. Check out our gallery of pictures from the French Open for more of her looks. They kinda give a new meaning to “I see London, I see France.”

Celebrities Hog Spotlight At Super Bowl

superbowl-celebrities

Foolish athletes! Don’t you know who the real stars are?! While the football players did all the work on the field, stars like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, and Ashton Kutcher showed up at the Super Bowl to hog all the attention and bask in the glow of the photographers’ cameras.

Kim Kardashian was there too, but she stayed surprisingly hidden during the game. Surely she was nervous watching her boyfriend Reggie Bush help to snag a win for New Orleans and probably wanted to bite her nails in private. But once Reggie and the Saints landed the trophy, ol’ Kimmy was back in front of the cameras, celebrating on the field like she had just won the game and posting a bunch of exclamation-filled tweets. Pics below.
