Brad Pitt Bidding Malibu Goodbye Forever?

Brad Pitt Bidding Malibu Goodbye Forever?-photo

Brad Pitt, 45, announced at an Oscar round table on Sunday that he's putting his Malibu home that he bought after splitting from Jennifer Aniston in 2005 up for sale.

The reason? The paparazzi.

MSNBC reports that fly-free Pitt says that the extreme interest in his and SAG Awards companion Angelina Jolie's lives has forced them to say goodbye to living in California.

“The publicity machine is out of control. It's everything we didn't sign up for,” Pitt said to Newsweek. “There's this whole other entity that you get sucked into. You have to go and sell your wares. It's something I never made my peace with. Somehow you're not supporting your film if you don't get on a show and talk about your personal life. It has nothing to do with why I do this.”

The passably attractive Brad and Angie look to be settling in France permanently. No word on whether their place in New Orleans will be put up for sale as well.

"They love France, and the laws targeted at paparazzi make it difficult to photograph the kids," a source says.

Pitt's modest home in Malbu is 4000 square feet, set on a cliffside and features bamboo floors, a swimming pool, tennis court and stairs to the beach.

The home, which was built in 1962, sits on three acres of land.

And despite it being a horrendous time to put a house on the market, he has one potential buyer.

At the same round table, 43-year-old Robert Downey Jr. offered to put in a bid.

Iron Man said that he'd had a "pretty good year."

    Yeah, I was wondering why he always has his mouth hanging open when he has his photo taken at the premiers...Like his tongue is hanging out. It's really weird and not an attractive expression. I think Brangie looks stiff and the reason they're selling and leaving is because they probably need the money to support their jet setting and because they're not the most popular couple in Hollywood anymore.

    Ali (who knows maybe that stands for Ange li na ) Are you f*cking dreaming? he looks miserable! and when you are running aroud airports with 6 (or how ever many kids they have now) under the age of 5 you look like a bunch of Carnies! give me a break why could Grandma not take care of the kids while they promote his movie? I have seen Mexicans in Tiajuana with (on the border line) more dignety ! Do a set of 6 month old twins need to fly to Japan?

    Brad looks great??? These days he wears an expression that says something painful is being stuck up his ass. That was a very mean comment and I think Brad looks absolutely happy...why shouldn't he be....he's getting out of LA LA land and moving to France with one of the world's most beautiful and kind hearted woman. You comment only makes you look jealous and mean....anyone can see how happy Brad and Angie are signed you name Jen...maybe you are his bitter, ex- Jennifer Aniston? Now that is one Plastic hollywood type....I bet she never leaves California, cause she thrives on the attention.

    Brad looks great, even if he’s not getting any younger. I read here ( about his workout routine and, wow, if he keep it up like that, he’ll still be hot at 70.

    Caligornia wake up and pass a law, the paparazzi's have gone to far for years and are only getting worse, every human being has the right to live a some what normal life, this family can not even walk to there car without hundreds of eyeballs on them, all they want is to be able to play outside with there kids, walk down there own street and socialize with there neighbors, let there kids ride there bikes with there friends, this should not be so difficult to understand, they are being chased out of here, because California has not passed a law on how far the razzi's can go, when will California wake up to this very Important Issue.

    The Jolie-Pitts travel like they are on some 'super-vitamins,' the money that is needed to support their lifestyles is huge, with their 6 children, and their entourage of people, their private jets, their high-end rental homes... Not even Tom Cruise hops around like the globe like the Jolie-Pitts for pete's sake. Not normal behavior for even wealthy movie stars to run all over the world? In addition, both Jolie and Pitt have NOT made a bow-office movie, and that is what it's all about...ratings. Persnally, I think these two people need the money.
