Amid several "false" rumours about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, a new report claimed that the actor's mother was furious with his ex-wife for trash talking about him in a recent interview.

After Pitt, 55, complimented the 81-year-old Hopkins on being "as vibrant as ever", Hopkins assured Pitt that the younger actor is "as easy going as ever".

"Tony is a classical musician while Jonathan is more jazz - he tries to get the feeling of the pope and how he walks and how he feels and then he can improvise, it's a very different approach to characters but working together, for both of them it worked, the jazz and the classical actors, it was wonderful".

"I'm seeing that these days", Brad told Anthony.

Pitt then adds: "I think we're living in a time where we're extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable".

"We've always placed great importance on the mistake", Pitt said.

US crude oil inventories likely declined by 1.8 million barrels last week, according to six analysts polled by Reuters. Trump said he was willing to wait another year to sign a trade deal with China.

"I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privilege", Pitt said. We are all going to make mistakes.

Brad also divulged to his "Legends of the Fall" co-star that he used alcohol as an "escape" from all the things he had to face at the time. We don't, as a culture, seem to stick around and see what that person's next step is. "I hadn't cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find myself, at this latter stage, much more moved - moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news". "However I lose it at instances". I get sucked into something, and I can lose it. You can not have one without the other.

Reportedly, after hid feud with Maddox, Brad Pitt was also investigated for child abuse, which he eventually got rid of. I see it as something I am just now getting my arms around at this time in my life.

"A breakup of a family is certainly an eye-opener that as one - and I'm speaking in general again - but as one needs to understand, I had to understand my own culpability in that, and what can I do better", he continued. I feel like cinema is being reduced more and more to spectacle, something more sensational.

"I look at it, and I think, 'What a great blessing that was, because it was painful, ' " Hopkins said.
