Separated at Birth: Hunk Edition

Filed under: Boys, Celebrity Whoredom — shhville @ 9:17 pm

I think we’ve discovered our theme for the week. Boys, boys, boys. Let’s continue with the latest Separated at Birth post: Brad Pitt and Robert Redford.

Brad Pitt has been morphing into Robert Redford for some time now, but every time I brought it up people said I was crazy. But THEY were crazy. CAN YOU NOT SEE WITH YOUR EYES, NAYSAYERS?

Then, last May, The Daily Mail published a tidbit that totally backed me up, complete with photo comparison:

So I was vindicated and that was that. Yay! But THEN, Angie and Brad showed up at the Independent Spirit Awards last week looking like a very hot time warp:

Oh, sorry, wrong photo.

All the goss rags were saying that Brad looked like a 70’s porn star, but all I saw was Robert Redford. I mean look at him:

All he needs is a ‘stache and a dirt shower and he’s the Sundance Kid.

So that’s that. I’m right (as always) and PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE backs me up. In other (hysterical) Robert Redford news, remember back when he made a movie with Cruise and Streep that no one went to see including you? Well, the goss at the time was that Streep and Redford were bailing on most of their promotional obligations because they were both so turned off and creeped out and fed up with His Majesty Tom Cruise that they refused to even be in the same room with him. Totally plausible, right? Then today, in my Redford image hunt, I came across this photo that totally confirmed it for me:

HAHAHAHAHAHA………these two could not look more irritated.

Streep: “Stop touching me, micro man, before I shove this giant corsage down your  throat.”

Cruise: “You guys are so awesome! Thanks for sitting down so I could look taller.”

Redford: “If I sit very very still, maybe he’ll forget I’m here.”

Later, cats!

  3. Bwahahahaha! Cruise really defines bat shit crazy for me.

    I think I had a feeling watching “A River Runs Through It” there was something Redfordy about it but now you’ve put your claw on it. Thanks Slothy!

    My personal Brad faves are his long haired vampireself and his unbelievable badassness in Fight Club.

  5. Congrats…only 16 years late on this great discovery.

    River Runs Through It started the comparisons between Pitt and Redford back in 1992.

    Way to be on top of things.

  10. Hey, look, Robert Redford stole Brad’s favorite hat in that one!

    Elaine – can you even believe that pic was published? It’s so painful to look at.
