All About Brad Pitt’s Rumored New Girlfriend Ines de Ramon, Who He’s Been Dating for ‘a Few Months’

Just weeks after Brad Pitt was rumored to be seeing Emily Ratajkowski (who is now reportedly dating Pete Davidson), the 58-year-old actor may have a different new woman in his life. The Daily Mail ran photos of Pitt at a Bono concert on Sunday night (November 13) with Ines de Ramon, a 32-year-old Swiss jewelry professional. The Daily Mail claimed it was informed by sources that de Ramon was part of Pitt’s team. People, meanwhile, reported that de Ramon works for the jewelry brand Anita Ko. Her LinkedIn lists her position as vice president of the company.

In photos, Pitt appeared putting his arms on de Ramon, and introduced her to his friends there, including Cindy Crawford. De Ramon is recently single herself, having separated from her husband, Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley, in September.

Reports on her relationship status with Pitt are a little conflicting at this point, with People reporting them as dating and E! reporting they’re just friends.

Either way, she and Pitt are close. So, who is de Ramon? Here, the essentials and all the details on her connection to Pitt.

De Ramon and Pitt first sparked dating rumors in November when they attended a concert together.

While neither de Ramon nor Pitt have commented on reports that they’re dating, The Daily Mail ran photos of them at a Bono concert together on November 13. The outlet reported they arrived together in Pitt’s Tesla at 8 P.M. They left separately, de Ramon in Pitt’s bodyguard’s SUV and Pitt in his Tesla.

On November 16, a source told People that the two have been secretly dating for months.

Interestingly, the source was indicated as close to de Ramon rather than Pitt. The source said, “[they] have been dating for a few months,” and that “Brad is really into” de Ramon. “They met through a mutual friend. She is very nice.”

A second source, this one close to Pitt, confirmed they were dating, but casually. “[They] recently started dating. [But] it’s not an exclusive relationship. Ines is cute, fun and energetic. She has a great personality. Brad enjoys spending time with her,” the source said.

A source told E! that same day, meanwhile, that Ines is “a friend of his.” Of the dating rumors, the source added, “This has been assumed in the past and has been wrong.” Hmm…

De Ramon separated from her husband Paul Wesley in September.

Pitt isn’t the only actor that de Ramon has been with. De Ramon and The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley announced their separation after three years of marriage in September 2022. Wesley and de Ramon were first romantically linked in July 2018.

A rep for the couple told People in September that “they have separated” and have been living apart for several months. “The decision to separate is mutual and occurred five months ago. They request privacy at this time,” the rep added.

De Ramon speaks five languages.

De Ramon is a graduate of the University of Geneva, earning her bachelor’s in business administration. Her LinkedIn indicates that she speaks five languages, with French, English, and Spanish indicated at a bilingual or native proficiency, and German and Italian listed at a professional working proficiency. Prior to working at Anita Ko in Los Angeles, de Ramon spent four years working in the retail department of jewelry company de GRISOGONO.

De Ramon’s Instagram is currently private.

Following news that she and Pitt may be dating, de Ramon appeared to set her Instagram to private. De Ramon has appeared before on Wesley’s Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev’s Instagram when she and Wesley were still together.

De Ramon has managed to keep public information about herself very limited, despite her marriage to Wesley and current rumored ties to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Pitt is likely to guard details of their relationship too, should it continue or become more serious, as the actor has not spoken much about any particular woman he has dated following his 2016 divorce from Angelina Jolie.

New Mickey Mouse documentary revisits the Disney icon’s controversial early years: ‘Mickey’s not necessarily a good guy in those cartoons’

He may have hit the big 9-5 in calendar years, but Mickey Mouse is forever young in the hearts of kids, parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents. The signature creation of Walt Disney — and his oft-forgotten collaborator, Ub Iwerks — long ago went from being a humble cartoon mouse to the symbol of a global corporation that has an outsized influence on global pop culture. That evolution is chronicled in the new documentary, Mickey: The Story of a Mouse, which premieres today on Disney+ and depicts the tension between Mickey the Mouse and Mickey the Mascot.

“I liked Mickey as a kid, but I liked him because he was my nightlight,” admits the the film’s director, Jeff Malmberg. “Growing up in the ’80s, Mickey was a corporate logo and a greeter at the Disney theme parks. But the film character was really missing when I was a kid.”

The Story of a Mouse sets out to remind audiences of Mickey’s character … which also means reckoning with the more controversial aspects of his nine-decade history. Following his breakout appearance in 1928’s “Steamboat Willie” — one of the earliest cartoons to feature synchronized sound — Disney and Iwerks’s mouse starred in a series of cartoon shorts in the late ’20s and early ’30s that are very much the product of their times and feature a version of Mickey who is much more ribald and rude than he later became.

Not only is he seen wearing blackface in 1933’s “Mickey’s Mellerdrammer” — where he and his cartoon pals stage a version of Uncle Tom’s Cabin — but he also forced himself on his longtime companion, Minnie Mouse, in shorts like 1929’s “Plane Crazy.” While Malmberg includes those offending moments in The Story of a Mouse, the full versions of those early Mickey Mouse cartoons are unsurprisingly unavailable to watch on any official Disney platform, including Disney+, although most of them can be found on YouTube.

“I can understand how some of those films may be offensive today,” admits legendary Disney animator, Eric Goldberg, who has drawn Mickey in multiple contemporary cartoons, including the era-spanning “Mickey in a Minute,” which is seen in The Story of a Mouse. “I absolutely get it. But I think you have to put them in their context of where society was when those films were created and understand that they were a reflection of who we were at a certain time in history. I prefer for them to be seen, but I can understand why they’re not.”

Two of the biggest proponents for making those early Mickey shorts available are esteemed art historian, Carmenita Higginbotham, and pioneering animator, Floyd Norman, both of whom are Black. “I love Mickey in the ’20s and ’30s,” Higginbotham, Dean of the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, tells Yahoo Entertainment. “That’s where you have some incredible risk-taking, and a place where we get a sense of him as a personality. Against the backdrop of the Great Depression, he becomes this necessary figure. And I also love his being in everyone’s face and his perseverance! Those are qualities that really resonate with me.”

“Mickey’s not necessarily a good guy in those cartoons,” she continues, noting that Warner Bros. has released some of the studio’s older Looney Tunes shorts on Blu-ray with statements warning of offensive or dated content. “Because of that you can really understand and read how issues of sexism and racism are playing out in a public context in that era. And all through physical humor. I’m an art historian, and I believe that art should be made accessible with the right context. They are cultural artifacts.”

Norman, meanwhile, is the only animator interviewed for The Story of a Mouse who actually knew Walt Disney. Born in 1935, he learned to draw after watching classics like Bambi and Dumbo and later became the first Black animator to work at the Mouse House, joining the company in 1957 — nine years before Disney’s death. “Walt was already legendary by the time I arrived at the studio,” Norman remembers. “I was able to observe him pretty close at hand and got to know the man. You realize just how much Walt Disney was the perfect representation of Mickey Mouse. He was the ultimate optimist, incredibly resourceful and a remarkable leader. And Mickey Mouse was all of those things.”

Having had that one-on-one experience with Disney — who voiced Mickey Mouse in all of those early cartoons — Norman understands that he was a man of his time, and the content of those shorts reflects that. “It was a different world, and a different time,” he observes. “There are a lot things we probably regret, and mistakes we’ve made. But I don’t believe in hiding history: we should all learn from history.”

“Looking back at the past, you recognize that the world has changed, and the culture has changed, but that doesn’t mean what happened back then should be censored or hidden from view,” Norman continues. “We should know about these things. If the studio wants to put a disclaimer at the head of those cartoons, I have no problem with that.”

But The Story of a Mouse doesn’t just tell the story of Mickey’s past — it also speculates about his possible future within the halls of Disney. Certainly, Mickey remains a major star at all of the Disney parks, and in merchandising. But in recent years, he’s also made a comeback as an animated personality. Young viewers are introduced to him in the pre-school friendly Disney Junior series, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which lives on in re-runs years after it stopped producing original episodes. And Disney+ has found success with The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, a streaming series that launched in 2020 and features a more retro version of Mickey in both appearance and attitude.

For Goldberg, those examples prove to him that Mickey remains a “living, breathing” character beyond the frozen face that greets visitors as they walk into Disneyland or Disney World. “He is alive to use,” the animator says. “Mickey is a character with a particular personality, and a particular way of moving. We treat Mickey like he’s always in the present, not somebody who has been frozen in time. Any new piece of animation we do with the character reflects that.”

“Last year, we did a large piece of animation for the 50th anniversary of Disney World, and it was missing Mickey,” Goldberg continues. “We were told we needed to include him, and so we animated two minutes feature him for this show. And the response was fantastic! Everybody was like, ‘Hurray, there he is!’ So it’s not like the character has gone away or is in retirement: he’s still here and present for people.”

That said, it doesn’t appear that Disney has any immediate plans for a Mickey-centric feature film, at least none that they’d share with Malmberg and his producer, Meghan Walsh. “We haven’t been privy to that information,” Walsh says, laughing. “I’ll be the first person to be excited to see what’s coming. I remember watching the [2013 cartoon] “Get a Horse” before Frozen and that made a strong imprint on my mind years before this documentary. What they’ve done in the past ten or so years has been really cool from my perspective.”

For his part, Norman thinks that the timing is right for a new Mickey Mouse feature. “Mickey is a viable star,” he notes. “He sells tickets at the box office, there’s no doubt about that. He’s not going anywhere: he’s forever a part of the Disney studio and a part of our lives.”

As The Story of a Mouse notes, there will soon come a time when Mickey Mouse transitions from exclusive Walt Disney Company property into the public domain. That’s an inevitability that the corporation has so far managed to successfully postpone, most famously via the Copyright Term Extension Act that Congress passed in 1998. Famously introduced by then-California Congressman, Sonny Bono — who died in a skiing accident before it was signed into law — the bill extended the clock on copyrighted characters, including Disney’s menagerie of creations. Because Disney executives lobbied extensively for the bill, it’s since become known as the “Mickey Mouse Protection Act.”

But that extension is finally running out. On January 1, 2024, “Steamboat Willie” will enter the public domain, and that iteration of Mickey Mouse will be fair game for other artists to use without fear of legal repercussions. (Disney will still hold the copyright to later versions of Mickey, though.) In the past, the company has challenged individuals and companies that have used Mickey’s image without permission — including one famous case involving a day care center — and a spokesperson suggests to Malmberg in the documentary that the company has perhaps been too aggressive in that regard.

“I’m glad we were able to talk about that,” the director says. “This is far from an independent documentary: we are serving at the pleasure of the Disney Corporation. Within that, you have to have very firm lines in the sand of things that you want to talk about and things that you need to talk about. Copyright was one of them.”

Higginbotham, for one, is excited to see the art that a public domain Mickey inspires. “It’s going to be really interesting when that symbol goes worldwide and without restriction,” she notes. “How is that going to change how we understand what Mickey means? Right now, he is largely a symbol and not in the way he was in the ’30s.”

There’s a chance that Mickey might even return to his controversial ’30s roots. Next year, moviegoers will have the chance to see the new horror film, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, a gory horror movie starring A.A. Milne’s classic childhood character, who entered the public domain in January. (Disney continues to own the copyright to its version of Winnie the Pooh.) That means that an R-rated horror movie version of “Steamboat Willie” — with Mickey making like Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers and slicing-and-dicing his victims — could hit screens as early as 2025.

Asked how he’ll feel if a Mickey Mouse slasher movie goes into production, Norman just laughs. “You never know what’s going to happen when you let the cat out of the bag,” he says. “I’ll be watching, though! I’ll be watching.”

Musk Says Twitter Has Reinstated Kathy Griffin, Jordan Peterson and Babylon Bee — but No Decision on Donald Trump Yet

Elon Musk, in the middle of a crisis of his own making after hundreds of Twitter employees quit following his demand they commit “hardcore” to toiling at the company, found the time to pardon comedian Kathy Griffin for the crime of impersonating the tech tycoon.

Griffin was suspended from Twitter in early November after she changed her account name to “Elon Musk” and used his pic for her profile. Griffin took over the Twitter account of Maggie Griffin, her late mother, after being banned and has continued to troll Musk. On Friday, she responded from that account, “Dear Eilon. You f**ked up, fool. I’m going downstairs to my basement of heads. You’re up. Xxoo, The Beheader.”

As for whether or not to let Donald Trump back on Twitter, Musk said, a “decision has not yet been made.” Trump was permanently banned from Twitter and other mainstream internet platforms in early 2021 for his posts supporting the Jan. 6 rioters who attacked the U.S. Capitol.

Musk has accused Twitter of censoring conservatives and he has previously said he would reverse Twitter’s permanent ban on Trump, calling it a “morally bad decision.” Trump has previously insisted he would not rejoin Twitter, regardless of who owns it, to stick to his own (ironically named) Truth Social, a Twitter knockoff.

In addition to reinstating Griffin — whose first name he misspelled as “Kathie” — Musk also said author Jordan Peterson (which he misspelled as “Jorden”) and satire site Babylon Bee have had their Twitter accounts restored.

Peterson, a right-wing Canadian psychologist, was suspended in June 2022 under Twitter’s rules prohibiting hateful conduct after he tweeted, “Remember when pride was a sin?” He then deadnamed Elliot Page, the actor who in 2020 announced that he is transgender, and said that Page’s “breasts [were] removed by a criminal physician.”

In March 2022, Twitter suspended the right-wing Babylon Bee, also under the company’s “hateful conduct” policy, after the publication announced that it had selected Dr. Rachel Levine, a transgender woman who is U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health, as its “Man of the Year.” The website bills itself as “your trusted source for Christian news satire.”

In response to a Twitter user who exhorted Musk to “bring back Alex Jones,” the

conspiracy-monger who has been ordered to pay nearly $1.5 billion to families of victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting, Musk replied, “No.”

Musk, shortly after he closed the $44 billion Twitter takeover on Oct. 27, said the company would create a content-moderation council with “widely diverse viewpoints” and that “no major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes.” It’s unclear whether such a council was formed.

Upon completing the Twitter deal, Musk fired the senior management team and laid off 50% of its 7,500 employees. On Thursday, more than 1,200 employees quit over Musk’s “hardcore” workplace fiat, the New York Times reported. That would leave around 2,500 staffers remaining, about one-third its previous headcount.

In a thread Friday, Musk said Twitter’s new policy ensures “freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.”

According to Twitter’s CEO, that means “negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter.” He added, “You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.”

Communicating as a Founder

Founders are leaders, and communication is one of the essential aspects of leadership. As a founder, you must communicate effectively with your team, investors, employees, clients and possibly other co-founders. It is immeasurably how much honing good, efficient and effective communication skills will help run your business or start-up. In this post, I will talk about good communication, why you need it as a founder, and how you can improve at it.

 

What makes communication suitable?

Good communication involves exchanging information so that words are not just spoken, but the emotion and context are adequately exchanged. Good communication also involves listening and making the other person feel heard, understood and part of the team.

Why is good communication important?

As a founder, you need to be able to communicate in such a way that leaves people fully understanding of what you say. Your goal is to solve problems, and so your communication should not create the problem of misunderstanding. 

How can you improve your communication skill?

 

There are a number of essential aspects of communication that you can put into your repertoire or improve on, but I will only talk about 5 critical points that, if you work on, will instantly make you a better communicator.

  1. Plan your communication.

Founders are often charismatic people who feel they can spontaneously talk about anything whenever the need arises. While that is an excellent skill, it is imperative to plan what you want to say to stakeholders (investors, team, employees, etc.) in your start-up. Planning automatically infuses a sense of direction. Planning what you want to say, how you will say it and when to say it can make a world of difference in how it is received. It is also great to use help whenever you need it. 

  1. Learn to listen.

One big mistake we often make is being so convicted by our thoughts that we do not allow the opinions of others. This trait can be good for a one-person sport but can be detrimental to a team. You always want the people you work with and those who work for you to feel like they’re part of your dream, that way, they can give their optimum effort. Not listening to the input of others can make them feel isolated and leave you looking like a tyrant. 

  1. Pay attention to tone.

Whether speaking or writing, being aware of tone is an essential communication skill. The tone of communication carries the presence of context, the varying levels of urgency, intentionality and attention. Taking tone into account when you communicate will ensure you aren’t just sending a message filled with words but also one filled with the intended emotions. 

  1. Understand your audience.

Every audience isn’t the same, and an intelligent founder is one who is aware of who they’re speaking to and tailoring the conversation to the audience. One tone might be good for Team A but would have no effect or be bad for Team B. Sometimes, it is just timing and taking cognisance of the mood. Understanding your audience and reading their response as you communicate is pertinent as it will be what determines if you’re carrying them along in your vision.

  1. Confidence is key.

 Your start-up is a ship, and every ship needs a captain. You are the captain of your start-up, and everybody looks up to you for leadership. When you communicate with members of your start-up, you need to convey confidence. Your team shares your energy as the leader of the group, so it is vital that the energy is positive and confident.

So that’s it, five easily applicable ways to help you get better at communicating as a founder. Working on these things would make you a better communicator, help convey your vision better to investors and workers, and help you better solve problems and scale your start-up.
