Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie pose on the red carpet prior to the Japan premiere of Pitt's new movie "Moneyball" at Tokyo International Forum on Wednesday night. Pitt, who is popularly referred to in Japanese as "Burappi," also posed with high school baseball players from the areas devastated by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Pitt and Jolie are the first major movie stars to visit Japan since the March 11 disaster. During their 48-hour visit, they managed to take their six children on a shopping trip to Kiddyland. "Moneyball" opens in Japan on Friday.

@ Gurukun.

Johnny stopped in Tokyo first week in March. A week before the quake.

Didn't Jonny Depp stop by not to long ago?

Depp came to Japan just before the quake to promote "The Tourist," but canceled his trip to promote the "Pirates of the Caribbean" film.

Is Burappi trying to copy Johnny Depp? Because the hobo look really doesn't look good on him. (Or on Depp, really) A waste of a perfectly good bit of beefcake.

If you wear a red carpet you had better plan to be walked on.

@mackemack: What fuss are you talking about? A newssite reporting two celebrities in town. That's doing their job the last time I checked.

I don't see what all the fuss is about. And, seriously...he couldn't get a suit that fit properly?

He didn't even know how to play baseball before he did this movie. He said he almost felt ashamed doing it, but I here it is a great movie nonetheless.
