Brad Pitt Steps Out Looking Thinner Amid Angelina Jolie Divorce


Brad Pitt, is that you?

The 53-year-old actor, who has always appeared fit, looked almost unrecognizable as he stepped out in Los Angeles Thursday, looking thinner than usual. He wore loose blue skinny jeans, a white t-shirt and a black zip-up jacket.

His appearance comes more than six months after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from him after two years of marriage and a 12-year relationship. A source close to the actor told E! News last week that “things have calmed settled between Brad and Angelina” adding, “They both have agreed to put the kids first.”

Both actors have since resumed their individual work and passions, while Pitt has reportedly been also focusing on his fitness.

A source told People Pitt has been working out “almost daily” and had “lost a few pounds, he’s in very good shape.” Us Weekly reported in January Pitt had “lost a bunch of weight” and is “focusing on himself again, watching what he eats and has a chef making him healthy meals.”

Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Marriage: Couple Is Not Calling Off Divorce

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are continuing with plans for divorce.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner aren’t getting back together after all.

Although the former couple has been spending tons of family time with their children, daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4, a source has since confirmed they have no plans to reunite romantically.

“She seems adamant about going through with it,” a friend of the actress toldPEOPLE Magazine on Thursday.

Currently, Garner is in Los Angeles with her kids as they prepare for the end of school and Affleck, who is in the midst of production on The Justice League, has returned to London from L.A., where he recently appeared at the Spike Guys’ Choice Awards.

Garner “denies that she is back with Ben,” the friend added. “She actually almost laughs when asked.”

As for when she and Affleck will officially end their marriage, it may be a while as Garner reportedly “doesn’t seem to mind at all that it’s not finalized.”

Months ago, Garner spoke out about the end of her relationship and Affleck’s alleged affair with their former nanny, Christine Ouzounian.

“I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” Garner revealed during a candid interview with Vanity Fair in February. “And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”

“We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny,” Garner continued. “She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives.”

How to Win a Custody Battle


  1. Take action first. If the mother of your child takes you to court, then you will have a problem. When a father takes the mother of the child to court, it shows the court that you really want to be in your child’s life and want to take action.


2. Pay child support. Even if it’s not ordered into court yet, no matter what. Give something every month and do not give cash, write a check, money order, etc.


3. Avoid arguing with the other parent. This only makes things worse and it will start giving your child mixed emotions.


4. Call the police. If at any time the other parent argues with you, just walk out and call the police. “Do not argue back”, because it can be put into a police report and it can be used against you in court.


5. Spend as much quality time with the children as possible. Take them to activities them will enjoy every time you are with them and document the activities with photos. Do they enjoy swimming, face painting and walks in the woods?


6. Great–do that and more with them and have the photos to prove it. Don’t have time to take them somewhere special? No problem–make a game of whatever you are doing with them form shopping at the local Publix to raking leaves. Make it fun for the kids and get photos of the good times to back it up.


7. Be present. Make sure you attend as many teacher conferences, doctors appointments and extracurricular activities as you can and be sure to know the names of their teachers, doctors, friends, coaches and babysitters.


8. Keep track of everything. This is very important, keep track everyday when you see/don’t see your child. It will also help you in the long run. Do not tell the other parent that you are keeping track.

  • Record each and every time the other parent breaches the current custody agreement. Record every omission, such as, late pickup/returning, didn’t return child’s things, didn’t pay math tutor, no show at parent-teacher conference, etc.
  • Keep a detailed record of all payments. This includes all child support payments and other financial obligations governed by current agreement. Keep it in the file with your other court documents.


9. Make your visits. Make sure that you are making your visits when it’s your day. If you cannot make it for some reason, make sure you call the other parent and tell her. Not making a scheduled visit will look bad on your part.


10. Dress professionally. Make sure you are dressed nicely with a suit, etc. Don’t dress like a slob with ripped jeans or a ripped shirt.


11. Make sure that you go to all your court dates. Missing court could result in a warrant for your arrest.

12. Be yourself but also demand your rights.
