Before Brad Pitt signs up for a role, he has to get the idea past a particularly tough panel of judges: Angelina Jolie and their six children. “I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They’re everything. The family is first,” Pitt tells Guy Ritchie in a chat for Interview magazine. “I also don’t want to embarrass them.” He also plans on taking more time off between roles going forward. “I’m not good at going back-to-back-to-back-to-back with movies, and it’s just now that I’m starting to get my bearings again and a flavor for what’s next,” he says. “It’s just about discovery now and finding something new that’s interesting to me.”

Beyonce has decided to bow out of Clint Eastwood‘s long-planned remake of “A Star is Born,” according to E! News. “I was looking forward to the production of ‘A Star is Born’ and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood,” the singer says. “For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life, but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together.”

Lindsay Lohan
isn’t having the most relaxing visit home, apparently, as the troubled actress and her mom, Dina Lohan, reportedly had a huge fight outside Dina’s Long Island home Wednesday morning, according to Page Six. The incident reportedly took place around eight in the morning as a black SUV was returning the pair home after a night of partying in New York City. “[Lindsay] was yelling, ‘I’ve had enough of this,’” a witness claims. “It was an argument between Lindsay and her mother,” a police spokesman says. “Lindsay called her father and her father called the police.” Her dad, Michael Lohan, suggests this was no mere argument, though, adding, “It was a hell of a lot more than that” without elaborating further.

Janet Jackson‘s lawyer is calling foul on a Vanity Fair article that claims she delayed brother Michael Jackson’s funeral until she was reimbursed the $40,000 deposit she’d put down to secure his burial plot, according to Us Weekly. Jackson’s lawyer, Blair G. Brown, calls the story “false and defamatory” in a letter to the magazine. “Ms. Jackson never delayed the funeral in any way, ” Brown writes. “To falsely accuse Ms. Jackson of holding up her brother’s funeral over money is outrageous. This story is particularly hurtful and distressing because of Ms. Jackson’s strong desire to serve her brother, whom she loved dearly, and her wish to stand with and support her family.”

One Direction’s Harry Styles is settling into his heartthrob status, admitting that he’s “quite flirty” in an interview with Seventeen magazine. “Maybe too flirty. I’m an 18-year-old boy, and I like to have fun,” he admits, though he draws the line at being described as girl-crazy. “I wouldn’t say girl-crazy, because that makes me sound like a bit of a womanizer,” he says. “That isn’t really me.”
