The Internet is undeniably making the world smaller.
And while this is a great thing for friends trying to stay in touch years after moving away from each other, there’s a certain sect of people who must suffer while the rest of us thrive.
I’m talking, of course, about American celebrities who years ago starred in bizarre, unintentionally hilarious commercials in Japan (why Japan is the main purveyor of this advertising insanity, I have no idea), only to have the Internet unearth them for the whole planet to see.

Although Brad Pitt has said he and Angelina Jolie wouldn't get married until gay couples could legally wed, the actor now seems to have changed his outlook on saying "I do."
"The kids ask about marriage. It's meaning more and more to them," he tells USA Weekend. "So it's something we've got to look at."
And Pitt's children—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne—mean the world to him, he says.

Filmmaker Terrence Malick's latest, "The Tree of Life," has been alternately described as a “tone poem” delving into issues about faith, family and forgiveness and a “coming of age story about the universe,” so it’s understandable that Monday's Cannes press event got a little heavy.
The movie tells the story of a Midwestern family in the 1950s, with Brad Pitt playing the authoritative father raising three kids along with his wife, played by Jessica Chastain.
Although Pitt, a father of six, joked that his parenting style isn't quite the same as the character he plays in Malick's film, the story does raise a lot of the same questions about spirituality he had as a child.

Last month, Angelina Jolie unveiled a seventh map-of-coordinates tattoo, leading to speculation that she was adding to her brood of six.
Now the actress is setting the record straight about the ink art, which many believed represented the longitude and latitude of the region from which Jolie and partner Brad Pitt were planning to adopt next.
"Well, if they know that it's latitude and longitude, they would have figured out quickly that it was Brad's birthplace," Jolie—who also has coordinates of the birthplaces of sons Maddox and Pax, daughters Zahara and Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne—tells "Extra."

After coming to terms with his gender identity and undergoing gender-reassignment surgery, Chaz Bono is hoping to help others through his new OWN network documentary "Becoming Chaz" and his work with a support group for children with gender identity issues and their families.
"I relate to these kids," he tells E! Online. "The difference between them and myself is that I didn't articulate it and fight for it and say, 'No, no, no! I'm a boy!' I have so much respect for these kids that do."
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh made headlines in several celebrity magazines last year because of her tomboy style, and while Bono isn't making any assumptions about the 5-year-old, he would welcome the opportunity to chat with her parents if they have any concerns. FULL POST

Does Angelina Jolie have another baby on the way? Her latest tattoo seems to suggest that might be the case.
On a recent U.N. goodwill mission to the Tunisia-Libya border, the star was seen sporting fresh ink on her arm, a new map of coordinates just below the already tattooed coordinates of where each of her six children were born, reports People.
It is believed that the latest numbers relate to the region Jolie is currently visiting.
Though the skin art has led to speculation that the Oscar winner and her partner Brad Pitt are getting ready to welcome another child into their brood, an insider insists to People that the couple currently have no new plans to adopt.
