Brad Pitt
Film Clones & Doubles

Brad Pitt's Genealogy. Where I also briefly hit Robert Downey and Kevin Bacon, among others.

[2009 Jan] Ben Affleck, Rwanda, and Corporate Sustained Catastrophe by Keith Harmon Snow Since 2001, actress Angelina Jolie has been UNHCR’s ‘Goodwill Ambassador,’ a role that took her to eastern Congo in 2003 and 2004.2 Jolie traveled in eastern Congo with intelligence insider and International Crisis Group agent John Prendergast, who is aligned with a growing army of ‘Save Darfur’ cloned organizations that deploy state-of-the-art media technologies to undermine and co-opt any true grass roots movement to legitimately empower African people. Jolie also starred as a ‘selfless’ hero working as a UNHCR official in Hollywood’s Beyond Borders, a film that peddles the necessity of mixing Central Intelligence Agency gun-running operations with humanitarian missions—because it is ostensibly for the ‘right’ cause: Western sponsored covert interventions.
    Hollywood stars from the film Ocean’s Thirteen formed another ‘humanitarian’ organization that inevitably throws celebrity raised funds at the western structural violence and white power economies focused on sustaining disaster in Africa. The governing board of Not On Our Watch includes Ocean’s Thirteen stars George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, and Matt Damon—Ben Affleck’s buddy ‘Will’ from the film Good Will Hunting—and producers Jerry Weintraub and David Pressman.
    Clooney recently joined John Prendergast, a U.S. National Security apparatus insider, and Hollywood producer David Pressman to pen a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed, opining all the usual trite platitudes—but absent a single recommendation of substance—about how President Obama can help Congo. Prendergast, who is billed as a ‘leading American human rights activist’, has previously boasted of traveling around Sudan and Central Africa with President Paul Kagame, and he is named as one of the early architects of the RPA coup d’etat in Rwanda.
    The entire exercise of appointing and fronting Hollywood celebrities as United Nations ‘Messengers for Peace’ and ‘Goodwill Ambassadors’ is a further means by which the establishment whitewashes the war-making and plunder of multinational corporations, and the individuals responsible for carnage the world over, and to more deeply institutionalize the structural violence. Described as ‘helping to shine light on the world’s trouble spots’, celebrity actorvism is more like a cop shining a bright light in your eyes so that you are disoriented, confused and blinded.

Brad Pitt was thrown out by a security guard at the premiere of his new movie ("The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"). The guard apparently didn't recognize him - thought he was paparazzo :P

"Why Can't Brad Pitt Recognize You Anymore?

Brad Pitt's memory is shot … at least, when it comes to remembering faces.

The 49-year-old actor says he has developed facial blindness, where after meeting and engaging with someone, that person's face disappears from his memory as soon as they walk away. If they ever come in contact again, to him, it's like meeting an entirely new person.

"So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them," the "World War Z" star told Esquire. "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, 'Okay, where did we meet?' But it just got worse. People were more offended."

The globe-trotting star, who has six children with Angelina Jolie, says the disorder has caused people to think he's, well, a jerk.

"Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I'll say, 'Thank you for helping me.' But I piss more people off," he says. "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'm going to get it tested."

Despite not undergoing any testing, Pitt goes on to say he diagnosed himself with the medical condition prosopagnosia, which is the official name for facial blindness, after reading about it several years ago.

It's gotten to the point where he doesn't enjoy going out in public, which is "why I stay at home," he tells the magazine, adding that in his job, "You meet so many damned people. And then you meet 'em again."

So it sounds like the fine folks who met Pitt Wednesday night at a screening for "World War Z" in Hoboken, New Jersey, are already a distant memory to the star. He made a surprise appearance to introduce his film — and the audience went absolutely nuts, as you can see in this clip.

After thanking the fans for coming out and apologizing for the screening getting off to a late start, the ponytail clad star said, "Today we came out to show the film for the people we made it for — our fans! We said, well there's no other place better than Jersey!"

"World War Z" hits theaters on June 21. You can read more of Pitt's interview in the June/July cover story of Esquire."
