Brad: ‘I’m so tired of thinking about myself’

Why is Naomi Campbell so angry? · Party like ‘Nacho Libre’

This just in: Hollywood loves a woman with a large chest

Brad Pitt went on and on about how great it is to be a parent Monday morning on “Today,” while also channeling his inner-Angelina Jolie and promoting the construction of affordable, eco-friendly housing in Hurricane Katrina-ravaged New Orleans.

“[It] completely changes your perspective and certainly takes the focus off yourself, which I’m really grateful for,” Pitt said about being a parent to Maddox, 4, Zahara, 1, and 6-week-old daughter Shiloh. “I’m so tired of thinking about myself. I’m sick of myself.”

And nothing says “sick of myself” like going on a talk show and talking about yourself, right?

Pitt was on the NBC morning show to promote Global Green’s effort to build environmentally friendly apartment complexes, but spent most of the time talking about being a daddy, saying it is the best thing he has ever done with his life.

“It’s a true joy [and] a very profound love,” Pitt said, according to People magazine. “You can write a book, you can make a movie, you can paint a painting, but having kids is the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever taken on.”

Surely that doesn’t include “Fight Club”?

You’re gonna need a bigger boat

Naomi Campbell needs some anger management classes.

The 36-year-old supermodel — currently being sued by not one, not two, but three former employees for assault — went bonkers on her boyfriend’s yacht off Viareggio on Italy’s Tuscan coast on Sunday, resulting in more than $56,000 in damage.

“All hell seemed to have broken loose. All you could hear was shouting and screaming in English,” a spy told The Daily Mirror. “There was the sound of plates being broken and a load of noise from the yacht.”

Apparently, Campbell got into an argument with the chef over a romantic meal for her man, Dubai Prince Badr Jafar.

Hey, nothing says “I love you” like trashing a man’s yacht, right?

Jack reforms his partying ways

Jack Black was a partying madman while filming last year’s “King Kong.” The “Nacho Libre” star said he consumed so much alcohol and other illegal substances that he can’t remember everything he did.

“I’m not one of those dudes who comes to the set drunk. But I had a bit of a lost weekend while we were doing ‘King Kong,’” Black told the Independent. “I did some Ecstasy and I went on a crazy rampage, running around, drinking and smoking like a chimney. But I seriously don’t party as much as people might imagine. I’m not a wake-and-baker.”

But the new husband (he married Tanya Haden in March) and father (baby Samuel was born in June) says he is cleaning up his act.

“I’m starting to go to bed at a reasonable hour. I have to get up and do things now,” the better-known half of Tenacious D said. “I even quit smoking two days ago. I’ve been quitting on and off for the last 10 years but this time I’m really going to quit for real.”

Keira’s bosom buddies

Keira Knightley says she has no plans to get breast implants, so U.S. movie studios are stooping to enlarging her bosoms on movie posters.

“Apparently they have done market research and found that women don’t want to see less than a C-cup on other women,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star told Sky News. “Isn’t that crazy? So they made my [bleeps] bigger.”

The recent Oscar nominee said the worst offender was the poster for 2004’s box-office dud “King Arthur.”

“Those things certainly

weren’t mine,” she said. “I remember, we had an interesting discussion when they said, ‘We want to make them slightly larger and you’ll get approval.’ I was like, ‘OK, fine.’ Honestly, I don’t give a [bleep].”
