Brad Pitt makes rare showing at Hollywood premiere

LOS ANGELES — Brad Pitt has made a somewhat rare public appearance since his split with Angelina Jolie by showing up at the Hollywood premiere of “Lost City of Z.”

The actor looked noticeably thinner when arriving at the Arclight Cinemas on Tuesday night. Although he was pelted with questions from reporters, Pitt gave a wave and said only, “Hi. Good to see you all.”

Pitt has kept a low profile since Jolie’s divorce filing in September. He showed up at a few premieres last fall for his war drama, “Allied,” which turned out to be a box office disappointment. He also introduced a clip for eventual Best Picture winner “Moonlight” at the Golden Globes in January.

Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment produced “Moonlight” and “Lost City of Z.”

Darius Rucker puts on free concert at U. of South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Darius Rucker has made good on his word.

In the fall, the country music star said he’d put on a free concert for University of South Carolina students if his alma mater’s football team got six wins in the season.

Wednesday night he made good on his promise, performing at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia. Rucker and bandmates formed Hootie & the Blowfish while they were students at South Carolina.

The concert happened because of a football pledge, but the school’s basketball success was celebrated, too.

Baldwin to publisher: Nice editing (not!)

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin’s latest beef is with his publisher.

The actor’s memoir “Nevertheless” came out this week and he shared some complaints in a Facebook posting. Baldwin wrote that the finished work had typos and other errors and complained that HarperCollins had failed “to do a proper and forensic edit.” He promised to compile a list of revisions, along with material that didn’t make it to print. One clarification, for those who wondered: When he said he was “in love” with Tina Fey and Kate McKinnon, he didn’t mean romantically. He is in love with their talent.

HarperCollins declined comment.
