Eerily spot on.
These always freak me out. But… Brad and Angie look more like themselves than most. So… there’s that?
Does it mean their real selves look more like wax figures than most people?
I wonder why they changed the color of the Atelier Versace dress.
The original was so much better.
And now the Queen of the Black Sacks is immortalized in color. Wonder if she’s pissed?
I was thinking the same thing, and I hope so. That glorious green dress she wore while pregnant would’ve been a good choice too
She shouldn’t be. It looks great on “her.”
I dig the new color combo, though. Angelina should wear something in black-and-blue, she can rock it.
Yeah, I was thinking….wasn’t that dress originally white with red trim at the top? But she does look good in color. I guess we can dress her wax figurine up and dream….
I can’t imagine her ever wearing DTM shoes in real life.
So she’d look like she was in Star Trek?
he’s going to be immortalized with THAT HAIR?
At least they left out the billy goat beard.
When I order my own Brad from Tassauds’ website, I am definitely cutting it.
He’s only immortalized this way until they get a good fire, or an especially hot summer and the AC goes out.
then all that will be left is his melted visage and that hair
It is such a shame they picked Homeless Brad for this.
At least they washed it.
They’re pretty good likenesses, but I’m mad that she’s doing the leg thing.
I’m actually pissed off on her behalf that they did that. Jesus christ, the woman does one dumb thing on an awards show, and THAT’s how they choose to immortalize her in wax? And it’s not like she ran that into the ground – the media totally did that on their own. I like her, I wish they’d done better for her.
Oh, I love it! It’s also not as exaggerated as Angie did it, so I think it’s the subtle touch of humor that these celeb-praising rituals need. Kind of makes you wonder how intentional it was.
I love it too because I think it essentializes how vampy she tries to be, and how silly it often comes off. She and Brad take themselves way too seriously these days.
Why did they feel the need to immortalize Brad’s terrible hair?? Seriously, I was so relieved when he cut it again. Also, Angie’s leg out pose is spot on.
He looks like the real thing. They didn’t get Ang’s eyes quite right, though.
They’re like the daytime soap villain versions of Brad & Ange
Real Life Angelina, please note: look into wearing this colour for your Maleficent movie premiere.
He’s looking more and more like Billy Ray Cyrus. Both in real life and in this figure.
I was thinking he was channeling Keith Urban, but Billy Ray Cyrus is more like it…less highlights.
He’s been edging into “Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers” territory for me.
Somebody has to, since Kenny Rogers no longer looks like Kenny Rogers.
No effin’ way she’s not wearing black to the Maleficent premiere. You think she’d miss the one opportunity where people couldn’t really slag on her color allergy?
I’m sure you’re right. But still, for a woman who once canoodled with her brother on the red carpet, live a little. Wear blue! Or black and blue.
The mags will tell us they airbrushed out Jen with a flametorch.
Even Jen’s wax figure will be “pregnant and alone,” I’m sure.
They really nailed her leg and his hair. Uncanny.
I read a piece on him in Esquire from last summer. I like him. Don’t even mind the scruffy beard and straggly hair. It doesn’t hurt that I re-watched “Thelma and Louise” last week.
She I still find insufferable. But that’s just me.
I love that they immortalized Angelina’s leg stance.
Bless whomever was cheeky enough to sculpt her with the leg.
I went to Tussaud’s in London many years ago when I lived there. Couldn’t get out fast enough. Creepy and gross. What’s the appeal? Don’t get it. (Also never go the appeal of Pitt. He’s pretty. I like my men less pretty. His ass in jeans in Thelma and Louise notwithstanding)
Nor do I. Every time I go to Amsterdam the line is around the block….for…what?
I agree completely. Plus it’s it like $60 to get in? I can think of many, many things I’d rather do with that $$.
In other news, I want to say “every time I go to Amsterdam” as casually as you did here. Or Paris. Or London. I’m not really all that picky.
=) I am blessed to have a Dutch grandfather/German grandmother who kept the family homes after my great grandparents passed away. So they have a home in Berlin and one that is about 45 minutes outside of Amsterdam. Just have to afford the plane ticket =)
I saw nudes of him when he was dating Gwyneth Paltrow and his body is sick and yet my loins are unmoved. He gorgeous but not sexy, at least not to me.
I don’t even find him that pretty, but I like his cheekiness.
I went to the one and London & thought it was just okay. Went to the extremely overpriced NYC one with out of town friends and the figures looked a little better. My guess is they benefited from improved technology. Still not really my cup of tea, don’t get the appeal.
Well his really not my type, but “Legends of the Fall” really captured how attractive he is (was).
I still love him, still think he’s pretty. But his “Legends of the Fall” prettiness was prettiness the likes of which I have never seen. His “Legends of the Fall” prettiness was like staring directly into the sun.
So true. I rewatched that movie recently and he is ridiculous. Just so good looking. But my favorite Brad is Fight Club Brad. I like him a little edgier.
I loathe just about everything about ‘Legends of the Fall’ and pretty Brad never did it for me. Nor does Homeless Brad, really. If I had to make the choice, I’d choose Snatch Brad. Weird, tattooed, dirty and almost completely unintelligible.
I like him in his trifecta of crazy men era: Fight Club, Snatch, and Twelve Monkeys. I wish he’d stop being so serious and go back to doing parts where he can show off how good he is at being whimsical and nutty… though the days of those abs are over now.
I never got the Pitt appeal until Fight Club. Also, the moment at the beginning of Troy when he kills the big giant dude. The man is gracefully athletic.
His is pretty spot-on but hers is missing something around the eyes. It’s always the eyes that seem to throw these things off.
it’s the hands that did it for me. if it wasn’t for the hands i could have sworn these were actually them, and TLo were playing a joke on us today.
That and the lack of body fuzz.
Well they contoured the shit out of her face. And Brad looks…confused? Constipated? Lost?
So exactly like he looks during the Chanel ad, right?
i want to like this more than once so hard.
I bet you open the figure’s mouth and it’s sucking in its cheeks. What a scary face… I hope they did it a propos :p
What a haggard way to depict him. She’s airbrushed-gorgeous indeed, in comparison.
That’s exactly what I thought. It’s like they captured him at the peak of a raging hangover.
Agreed! I was thinking that somebody at Mme. Tussaud’s likes her a WHOLE lot better than they like him.
Most realistic Madame Tussaud’s I think I’ve ever seen! Crazy. Angelina’s “leg dress” was all black, wasn’t it? Not that this needed to be identical, just wondering.
Why does Brad look so distraught? He does smile…
He looks like Planet of the Apes Brad Pitt. She looks the same. I don’t think it’s a compliment that you look exactly like a wax figure.
I was thinking more Caveman Brad. And she does look the same albeit maybe 10 lbs heavier than reality. Somehow less fragile, but maybe that’s the nature of the medium.
Did Brad or Angelina themselves have any input here, I wonder?
It’s the best he’s been dressed in years.
I love the fact that they did the leg thing
So we went to Madam whateverit’s called in vegas, it was fascinating and creepy as hell. The older ones were far less realistic but they had a really new Bradley Cooper and it was creepy as hell with how real it looked.
I shall dub them Emaciated Wonky Leg and Greasyhair Squintyeyes.
Hey, he looks kind of clean!!!!
…The eyes…follow you…
Hilarious that Brad’s scruffy hair and bags under his eyes are immortalized in wax…have to imagine when he starts balding, he’s going to regret this never ending scruffy phase…
Brad’s is eerily accurate! Angelina’s is just a little off. Oooh, wax statues creep me out. There was an episode of the Twilight Zone where wax figures of notorious murderers (Jack the Ripper, etc.) came to life and killed people. Gave me nightmares for years!
These leg-out and hands-in-pockets poses are so funny because they are spot on. I think they did a better job on her head than his, but these wax figures alway give me the creeps.
Definitely subtle references to some of their worst habits; those Brits can be so drole in their “praise.”
At least her wax figure isn’t pulling a Jolie.
His looks remarkably accurate. Hers looks like it’s been photoshopped.
It took me a little too long to realize the title of this post wasn’t a diss.
His brow is a bit more furrowed than real life, but other than that these are pretty amazing. And I would question their decision to put his hands in his pockets (UGH, it’s Bitter Kitten Kryptonite!), but that’s really how he *always* looks!
And she NEVER wears that much of a color, but she ought to.
I’ve seen better heads on boils!
She looks like her, but his doesn’t do justice to him. It makes him look a big caveman-ish. If I were him, I’d have wanted to be memorialized in the Fight Club era, not in the World War Z era.
Are her eyes really that… dishwater in real life?
I wish she would dress like this in real life.
Jessica McClintock prom dress and a hungover date.
This is probably the only way to get her to wear bold colors.
I get the impression they don’t like Brad Pitt very much over at Tussauds.
So creepy, but so many potential jokes….. the Brad Pitt figurine is dead on, I must say. The Angelina figurine is more lifelike than she is, though — so points deducted for that.
Why did they have to make one of Brad looking like this? I have never liked his caveman look at all.
Freaky! I’m secretly wishing they would have used a younger Brad Pitt.
The only reason I can tell these are fakes is because Brad never looks that clean anymore.
Those are totally accurate!! Wow.
His looks remarkably like the facial reconstruction they did of the neolithic Briton, recently.
He looks like Billy Ray Cyrus.
Wax Jolie is pulling a “Jolie” with her sexy wax leg!
She looks like Bellamy Young.
They never dress that well anymore.
Brad looks a little bloated in the face…
I’m assuming that her gown is a knock-off.
Hahahahahahahahaaaa, with the leg!
Ohmigod, he looks like he is auditioning to be one of the GEICO cavemen!
Hahahahahaha they gave her a leg sticking out of her dress
Ok, that last pic looks like the real thing. I wonder, do they actually use REAL human hair for the figures? Cause the Jolie hair looks real to me
They DO use real human hair! Put in strand by strand…..I saw wax figures on a cool show called “How its made” and it was really cool/creeeepy! Especially the eyeballs- they use tiny red fibers to make veins in the eyeballs….so cool.
Call me shallow, but I miss our young strapping Brad. He was purty! And I can’t with that hair. But Jolie, she looks like, out of all of humankind, she was made to be a mannequin. All in all, creepy but fine.
These are seriously freaking me out.
