  1. Brad Pitt:

    I am quite famously a not-crier. Is that a term ? i hadn't cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find Brad Pitt, at this latter stage, much more moved -- moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news. Just moved. I think it's a good sign. I don't know where it's going, but I think it's a good sign.
