Brad Pitt is spotted on the set of his new zombie thriller film World War Z in Glasgow, Scotland last week (August 29). Of course he hasn't had a chance to shave - he's running from zombies!
Check out the World War Z page for plenty more pics of Brad on set.
Brad can officially add "hero" to his résumé. A set insider told the New York Daily News that Brad actually saved an extra from being trampled after she fell during a scene:
"Lots of people hurt themselves and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped. I don't think she could believe it when Brad picked her up. He didn't have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly grazed knee."

Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos are spotted filming the new zombie epic World War Z in Glasgow, Scotland yesterday (August 24). Uh oh, they look like they're in zombie panic mode.
Check out the World War Z page for more pics from set.
World War Z is based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks. Brooks told the Herald Scotland that he's excited about how enthusiastic the city of Glasgow has been about the film's production:
"I grew up in Hollywood and I've never seen a city – any city - be this enthusiastic about a movie. It's probably the perfect storm – zombies have never been more popular, I don't think Glasgow gets a lot of film production so it's new and exciting and different. And, of course, it's Brad Pitt."

Brad Pitt is spotted on the set of his new zombie film World War Z in Edinburgh, Scotland on Sunday (August 21). The megastar was driving a beat-up old RV with smashed windows. I wonder if his insurance covers zombie damage?

If you've got a spare $13.75 million laying around, you can buy Brad's Malibu beach home. Brad listed the home - which he purchased for $8.41 million in 2005 - this week. The mid-century modern home is 4,088 square feet and features 4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms. It sits on a 1.26 acre lot in the Encinal Bluffs area of Malibu. Cool!

Brad Pitt is seen on the set of World War Z in Glasgow, Scotland last week (August 18). Glasgow is actually standing in as Philadelphia in the film (all the signs in the area near filming were changed to resemble those in Philly)
Brad's been filming the zombie flick since June (mainly in Malta) - check out the World War Z page for a bunch of pics from set.
Not everyone is happy about the city of Glasgow standing in for Philadelphia - like the real city of Philadephia! Philly.com has more:
"Don't expect staggering, flesh-eating, virus-revived corpses to add millions of dollars to Philadelphia's economy this summer. Blame uncertainties about state tax credits for filmmakers, says the head of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. Imagine moviegoers seeing what looks like City Hall, except it's really Glasgow City Chambers at George Square, which - ouch! - was named for King George III, the very despot Philadelphia led the Revolution against."

Causing a great deal of excitement in Scotland is the filming of the new film, World War Z. If Glasgow being the location of a large percentage of the filming wasn’t enough, it also stars none other than actor Brad Pitt. The whole Pitt family has flown out there with him to be by his side during filming.
His sons Maddox and Pax even visited the set where their father has been spending his time. Their lives must be far from ordinary. Rather than hanging out in a house where someone is watching television and someone else plays something like party poker, they find themselves on a zombie war film set with dressed-up actors running around them.
A series of explosions rock the set as filming takes place, and the boys must have learned to take it all in their stride by blocking their ears. They were understandably excited to be in amongst all the action, with Brad’s stunt-double thrown into the fray to confuse the situation.
Malta is another location where filming is taking place, with countless zombies roaming around, some looking a little worse for wear as they have apparently been destroyed. From Israeli and Palestinian soldiers to walking zombies and civilians, this film is set to be very entertaining.
Filming in the heat of Malta must be very different to filming in the Scottish weather in Glasgow, but Brad must be used to all that by now. His children get to accompany him and experience life on a movie set, while learning all about the process of making a film. It must be an exciting life to lead, with a lot of drama, whether it is from the staged explosions, or simply traveling all around the world as a career.
Brad Pitt is spotted chatting with his assistant on the set of World War Z in the UK earlier this week (July 18). That woman might have the best job in the entire world!

Matt Damon told German television station TELE 5 last week that he's glad that he's not as famous as his close friends Brad and Angelina Jolie:
"I have friends who are like prisoners. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ... They can't just go someplace. If they go for a walk, it turns into an international incident."

As you may have heard, the New York Senate recently passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the state. Brad, who once said he wouldn't marry Angelina Jolie until everyone could legally marry, released a statement praising the decision:
"It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens. But it is each American's Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot. Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage."
