It looks like they left with 3 bags from the candy store.

For a party? For FTKMF?


It's probably a coincidence that all their security were recently wearing blue shirts.

They obviously wanted to send out a rejoinder to Daily Mail's headline posted a day earlier that he "looks strained" on the set of Ad Astra.  They are countering with their own headline that he is "all smiles" and "always in a good mood"

Because he now has reason to be "always in a good mood."

It's a bit funny because the write up says he is "all smiles!" (adding an exclamation point for good measure), but he is not smiling at all in the photo that accompanied the post that shows him hopping from his trailer to his SUV.   His PR fed ET the text without an appropriate photo.

They also obviously volunteered the info that the children "have not yet visited the set." It isn't likely that anyone would think to ask because he hasn't been seen with any of them since September and filming just started.  So they are apparently letting us know that some time soon we may see them on set.

Most of the rest of the quotes are an over-the-top saccharine PR effort:  "He's a movie star in the best way.  Prepared, on time, friendly. All the things you want a person to be… he is that. He's always ready to work."   No actual casual on-set observer would think to gush that embarrassingly, especially after just ONE DAY of filming.

Brad Pitt is all smiles!
Amid his divorce from Angelina Jolie, the 53-year-old actor appeared to be in good spirits when he was spotted on the set of his latest film, Ad Astra, in Los Angeles on Monday. 
Pitt was sporting a fresh 'do, looking dapper in an emerald green dress shirt and tie. 
"He's very affable," a source tells ET, noting that Pitt's six children -- Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne -- have not yet visited the set. "He comes to work in a good mood."
"He's a movie star in the best way," the source adds. "Prepared, on time, friendly. All the things you want a person to be… he is that. He's always ready to work."

TMZ is still miffed at Angelina for releasing her first statement only to AP, effectively repudiating one of their reports and cutting them out, and so they're rehashing past hack jobs that she made unfounded accusations against Brad that kept him away from the children.  And that is the reason they gave for their claim that there is "NO talk of reconciliation."

This is biased and baseless tabloid reporting written simply to get hits.  Only those with a predilection or desire to believe the worst will give the report any credence.

The general public is probably very dizzy with the conflicting reports they've been deluged with -- none of which are accurate.

A lot of the media outlets must be dizzy as well.   Far fewer picked up TMZ's story compared to US's.

It will take a story with actual quotes from Angelina and Brad for people to sit up and really take notice.


TMZ's report contradicts the facts of the case as they are known to TMZ and as they've reported on them in the past:

Angelina Jolie Says Brad Didn't Commit Child Abuse, But it Was Still Bad (headline)
"Our Angelina sources say she's adamant ... Brad should not face criminal charges for getting physical with 15-year-old Maddox on their private jet. We're told she'll go "radio silent" if authorities make a move to build a case against her estranged husband."
According to the docs ... the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D."
Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.
The court docs TMZ acknowledges reading includes this very clear paragraph in Wasser's declaration dated Dec. 6:
4. It is my further understanding that since the Sept. 14, 2016 incident, the minor children have lived exclusively with Petitioner. Respondent has had weekly therapeutic visits with the minor children since Oct. 8, 2016. The frequency and duration of these visits have been determined by the minor children's therapists, who were put in place jointly by the parties immediately after the Sept. 14, 2016 incident. The therapists have been present during each of the Respondent's visits. With the cooperation of the parties, further weekly therapeutic visits of 5 hours each have been scheduled through the end of January 2017. Respondent's visits may increase at any time based on the therapists' evaluation of each child's individual feelings and progress.

The above totally debunk TMZ's assertions and shows the site is obviously and maliciously lying:
"One reason they will never get back together ... Angelina made extremely damaging allegations against Brad, claiming he was abusive to their kids. The investigations triggered by the allegations ultimately exonerated Pitt.
Brad hasn't hidden his feeling about the children -- they're at the top of his priority list, so it seems they're at the point of no return in terms of reconciling.

Even the casual observer will detect that it does not ring true after Brad's widely circulated confession of his failings and his admission that his problems were "self-inflicted."


TMZ makes the additional dubious assertion that: "We're told both sides are hashing out both child custody and property settlements, and the divorce is full steam ahead."

The post neglects to mention that TMZ itself reported they have a "prenuptial agreement" that is "is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune ... a reported $400 mil" and "makes divvying all that up simple." It doesn't mention that the prenup was not filed in court and they have not complied with the financial disclosure requirements. The post doesn't mention the Custody Stipulation that came about as a result of the DCFS' recommendations and the therapeutic visits, which were both the subject of numerous TMZ reports.  It does not mention the actual legal status of the case -- that there have been no filings since January.  And this is despite the fact that TMZ specializes in digging up and reporting court information.

For the same reason that it was easy to dismiss the US report in its entirety, it is easy to totally dismiss this TMZ concoction.  Neither is based on any info from any legitimate source.  But TMZ's has an additional malicious intent.

People, Hello and Vanity Fair have still not posted or tweeted anything.  Their uncharacteristic restraint hints that they've been given more substantial information and they are coming up with their own reports.

******

Brad has started filming Ad Astra.   He would not have gone back to work if they were not already through with the process and his relationship with the children has fully healed to everyone's satisfaction  -- including the custody evaluator's and the court's.  He will be working long hours over 3 - 4 months.  He won't have time for much else.

******

It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air.  [This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal our family.”

That was two months ago.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are deep in divorce talks, and there is NO talk of reconciliation, contrary to some media reports.
Several stories have surfaced recently suggesting the divorce is on hold and they are thinking of rebooting the relationship. Sources connected to the couple say nothing could be further from the truth.
We're told both sides are hashing out both child custody and property settlements, and the divorce is full steam ahead.
One reason they will never get back together ... Angelina made extremely damaging allegations against Brad, claiming he was abusive to their kids. The investigations triggered by the allegations ultimately exonerated Pitt.

The property was undoubtedly offered to them first and I would guess they considered purchasing it but had to pass when the DeMille came on the market.  They offered it instead to a good friend who already owned vineyards in California and Italy.  The $29 million total investment (with planned renovations) is a small sum for Lucas.  The DeMille was listed March 29 and their $24.5M offer was accepted a week later.   Lucas purchased the estate in late April. 

They must be very thrilled to have Lucas as their neighbor.  He can join forces with them to transform the area to a "place dedicated to the arts." Angelina said in her Mon Guerlain interviews: " It is a region we love in my family and that we have a history with."

In a galaxy not so far, far away—the South of France—George Lucas now has a new plot of land.
In late April, the Star Wars creator quietly purchased a historic chateau with a working vineyard in the Var in Provence for $11.2 million. His new estate is directly north of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s Château Miraval, local newspaper Var Matin first reported on Sunday.
This is the latest addition to his Skywalker Vineyards collection, which already owns properties in California and Italy.
Margüi consists of 253 acres, including 33 acres of vineyards. Separated by fields of forest from the Château Miraval estate, Margüi enjoys similar micro-climate conditions and under previous owners, it has produced award-winning rosé, and excellent (and largely rare for the Var region) red and white wines. Like Pitt and Jolie’s, the property also has olive groves, producing estate oil.
The door-to-door drive between chateaux is approximately two miles. A one lane blacktop departmental road passes alongside both estates.
According to Var Martin, Lucas also plans to add a small hotel to the property and has already received planning permission from the local council. This will require another $17.7 million in upgrade and construction, and increase full-time estate staff from 3 to 15.
