In one fell
interview swoop, Brad Pitt dragged both rageball Mel Gibson’s Jesus-in-a-snuff film, 2004’s The Passion of the Christ AND L. Ron Hubbard’s alien volcano con job religion Scientology. When you’re A-list and Angelina Jolie’s purse carrier, your fucks are not to be given!
In that same interview T magazine (via Indiewire) where he shared his thoughts about Donald Trump, Brad mentioned that he wants to do a movie about Pontius Pilate noting that it “won’t be for the ‘Passion’ crowd.” The Passion of the Christ was Mad Mel’s hyper-violent telling of the Crucifixion of Jesus story that some felt was anti-Semitic. Mel Gibson telling a story where Jewish people are the villains? Preposterous! Anyway, Bonghit Brad felt that it was a little skewed.
When James mentions that “The Passion of the Christ” drove him out of the church, Pitt laughs and responds, “I felt like I was just watching an L. Ron Hubbard propaganda film.”
Putting down his one hitter pipe to simultaneously slap Sugartits Spandex-Hater AND The Tom Cruise Church of Present-Day Taints in their faces gets a slow clap from me. Brad did mention that he thought Mel does violence “extremely well” (Oksana Grigorieva probably doesn’t appreciate that aspect of Mel’s many talents) and that he liked his ancient Mayan chase flick, 2006’s Apocalypto.
Suffice to say, it’s doubtful that Brad and Mel will be working together anytime soon. Mel’s not worried, he’s already got his next co-raging dick lined up. An insulted Tom Cruise has revoked the lifetime membership pass to the Scientology Celebrity Centre Bathhouse (it’s laminated with an overlay of a saucy John Travolta holding the electrodes of an e-meter in a suggestive manner) that he presented Brad with (along with a knowing wink) on the first day of filming Interview with the Vampire.
