Brad Pitt's Birth Control Problem

8/25/2006 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Imagine for a moment Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone kicking another high profile A-list male movie star to the Melrose Ave. curb and venting to the Wall Street Journal that there is no place on the Paramount lot for a production company that failed to lock down its name.
Composite of Plan B ad and Brad Pitt
Plan B, Hollywood (the production shingle partnering Brad Pitt, Paramount Pictures chief Brad Grey and, formerly, Jennifer Aniston), meet Plan B, New Jersey (a morning-after pill concocted by Barr Pharmaceuticals subsidiary Duramed). And only the latter, approved this week by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an over-the-counter, 72-hour post-coital solution, seems to be punch lined with an ®, the ominous symbol for registered trademarks.

Given the long trajectory of medical research and development, you can bet Barr Pharmaceuticals got to the trademark table long before Brad, Jen and Brad's brainstorm. And although deep-pocketed firms like Barr can sometimes choose to sue over the trickier-to-prove adjacent use of a registered term, chances are they might just settle for a Brangelina TV commercial endorsement.
Almost makes you wonder if pal George Clooney disbanded his production partnership with Steven Soderbergh because he got wind of a new OBGYN method called C-Section Eight.

Whatever. Just like Brad said about himself...I am now kinda sick of him. I was always sick of Angelina. These two attention-seeking, media manipulators deserve each other. "You can't build a big house on a weak foundation".

YOU ALL BRANGELINA HATERS ARE FULL OF SH*T!

WOULD YOU FORGIVE YOUR FATHER IF...

*HE TREATED YOUR MOTHER LIKE SH*T
*DIDN'T CARED ABOUT YOU UNTIL YOU GOT FAMOUS
*CALLED YOU INSANE AND QUESTIONABLE EVERY CHANCE HE GOT
*DIDN'T RECOGNIZE YOUR ADOPTED CHILD
*DIDN'T RECOGNIZE YOUR SECOND ADOPTED CHILD
*WANTED TO TALK TO YOU ONLY AFTER YOU HOOKED UP WITH ANOTHER FAMOUS MOVIE STAR
*WANTED TO USE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO PROMOTE HIS MOVIES
*RECOGNIZE ONLY YOUR BIO-CHILD AND IGNORED "THE OTHER CHILDREN" LIKE YESTERDAYS GARBAGE
*TREATED YOU LIKE SH*T IN PRIVATE BUT GREAT IN PUBLIC

IF YOU HAVE SAID YES TO ANY OF THIS....YOU HAVE ISSUES...CHECK YOUR SELF ESTEEM OR JUMP OFF A BRIDGE.

P.S. THE HOMEWRECKER SH*T IS GETTING OLD & ANYBODY THAT QUOTES WELL KNOW TABLOIDS OR BELIEVES ALL THE "SOURCES" OBVIOUSLY IS A STUPID COW WHO BELIEVES THE MOON IS MADE OUT OF CHEESE!

To Jillian

I am sorry i missed your post answering
mine # 22.
Aniston DID say on Oprah (I was watching!)
that her marriage wasn't what it looked like
(that it was a media fabrication-one way or
another they need their dirty money), AND
that NOBODY cheated ( I guess not even her
with VV).
That statement came from ANISTON, not the tabs.

TO #38
"Whatever" is NEVER an answer.
Brad Pitt and Angelina are REAL PEOPLE with
REAL CHILDREN to care about.
HOW do they manipulate you?! They've never
ever trashed anyone,
ALL they do is trying to LIVE their LIVES as
privately as possible (given the INSANITY
Aniston's caused), and to HELP others in
the process.

Aniston? She does NOTHING, and doesn't help
or give to ANYONE, ANYWHERE.
WHY don't you question her?!

Simone-

Aniston donates alot of money -- just doesn't publicize it -- as do many Hollywood people -- she's moved on -- let's move on as well.

Aniston does NOT donate ANYTHING.
Do you REALLY think that someone who's cackling that much all over the place,
seeking attention, wouldn't talk about that?!
Also, charities always mention the help they get-that provides greater awareness to their causes.
NOTHING from Aniston.
I agree that she should be ashamed. Not only because of that, but also because of the circus she created with her manipulations.

do you realized we've filled 4 pages with blogs when the story was simply about pharmaceuticals, over the counter, after -the-fact birth control pills? where are the right to lifers, the pro-choice people? can't brad's name even be mentioned without all this clamor?

My comments are heavy but I hope they provoke thought and reflection to the glib to criticise Brad and Angelina for not adopting a special needs child.

I absolutely respect people for adopting and caring for special needs children. They are the most wonderful people.

All I'm saying is that if MOST parents (84% in the Hawaian study) chose to abort their own flesh and blood when they find out the foetus has Down Syndrome. And why should anyone criticise Brad and Angelina for failing to adopt a special needs child?

And NO ONE has the right to criticise the parents who do choose to abort their foetus knowing that the child will require special care. It is a totally difficult and emotional dilemna that thankfully, most people don't have to face.

MILAGROS CONCEPCION    

The jolie thtat i knew before is so different to the one that i see now, that make me think that
she changed her way just to get what she wants (Brat Pit), a family with a man form anther
family to have hers. Maybe Jen and Brat had problems during the time of the film with jolie,
and that was the opportunity for jolie. All mariajes go through a lot, and in a mariage things are not perfect all the time. Well lets see for how long more she will act as a perfect wife.
About Brat, he does not look happy, he does not smile like before.
