Angelina Jolie's Signature Smile

Angelina Jolie's Signature Smile

Angelina Jolie spoke to the media in Mumbai yesterday during a press conference to talk about her shooting experience in India for A Mighty Heart. She clarified that she and Brad Pitt have no plans to adopt an Indian baby. Read the full article after the jump but here what Angelina said on the importance of this film: “We need to tell the story of Daniel Pearl and the reason we are making this film is because it’s very important to have a dialogue between the two cultures. I have the blessings of Daniel Pearl‘s family to play this role.”

UPDATE :: Added more pictures of Angelina Jolie in sandalas and carrying a brown leather bag on the set of A Mighty Heart from earlier today. Angie was spotted leaving the Anjuman-e-Islam school in Mumbai, India.

Angelina Scorches Indian Baby Rumors

It was an unusual start to an eagerly awaited press conference. Hollywood diva Angelina Jolie, who evidently kept her role as ambassador in mind at her first encounter with the Indian press on Wednesday evening, began with a confession.

“We have been avoiding the press since we landed in India, but the only reason was that we had a lot of work to do,”she said.

Jolie arrived at the conference in a white linen ensemble. Flanked by co-stars of the film, A Mighty Heart, her humble confession was followed with a terse rider: please ask questions pertaining to the film only.

The only personal query she allowed was one that enabled her to clear the air about rumours of her adopting again. No, Brangelina won’t be adding an Indian baby to their brood after all.

The evening began with the usual banter between her management team and the press. The ‘screening’ of journalists took an inordinately long time, with some being asked to stay out of the conference.

For those who did eventually make it to the Princess room at the Taj, there was disappointment in store: producer Brad Pitt had decided to stay away. Was it to mind the babies? No one knows.

The actress insisted that A Mighty Heart was not about terrorism. “We need to tell the story of Daniel Pearl, and the reason we are making this film is because it is very important to have a dialogue between two cultures,”she said. “I had the blessings of Daniel Pearl’s family to play this role.”

When asked if Marianne Pearl was the most difficult character she had played in her career, the actress replied, “When you are in the middle of making a film, you always think that way.

Playing her role is certainly challenging for me, as I have to make the world understand this woman and her family.”
Jolie said that though she knew Marianne personally, she had never met anybody who had faced this kind of trauma.

“She has every reason to be embittered and angry about what happened to her husband and her, but she is very positive and has nothing against Pakistan,”she declared. Did Marianne visit the shooting or want to see rushes of the film? “She is not interested,”replied Jolie.

“She has been travelling around the world, writing on women’s issues.”

Indian actor Irrfan said that he had expected to get intimidated by the star but she went out of her way to make him comfortable.

“She has a very strong personality and it comes across,”said the actor who referred to Jolie as “Angie”during the conference.

And finally, Jolie’s take on Mumbai’s infamous suburban trains. When asked how her much-publicised ride on a local was, she replied straight-faced, “It was fun.”

Thanks so much for being on top of all things BAMZS. Gosh, Angelina looks so lovely in these pictures. So much for those who say she never smiles. And I am glad that at least she gave one press conference clarifying all those adoption rumors.

You should see the splash clip—she was LOL @ that mickeyd place. I’m lovin’ it!

Morning BAMZS Fans!

This woman is gorgeous. Thanks Jared for the new thread.

She really is naturally beautiful.

Angelah,

Yes, I did see the splash clip. She was really laughing out loud and seemed to be enjoying herself. And all those people and papz outside mickey ds … it’s so unbelievable! I’m loving it too.

What I like a lot about Jolie is that she has “On” and “Off” days. She is “Off” in her private time in terms of how she dresses–I would say rather grunge looking :) But when she is “On” the job, such as a press conference like this, she totally rises up to the occasion to show us what a true Hollywood starlets are supposed to look. Same goes with Brad these days and I like that a lot about both of them. But, needless to say, both Jolie-Pitt look great either “on” or “off”, without hair/makeup persons trailing behind–they don’t have a need nor necessity to hide behind a hair curtain. Oh and some so-called “starlets” do hind behind the hair curtain even they are supposed to be “On”.

This is the smile which comes from the heart!

Thank you very much Brad, you are the one of the main reasons for this smile. God bless the Jolie-Pitts.

TOMKAT’S WEDDING? Oh god, I hope they don’t go to that fiasco.

Thanks Jared for the pics. She looks happy! Angie has always had a nice smile. Have a good one, everybody.

Couldn’t have said it better, Mediterranean! We need to thank Nicole Kidman for getting out of MAMS :)

Do you honestly think so? Don’t you think that TC wouldn’t like that as the papz and the tabloids would divide their focus and spotlight Brad and Angelina as much as they would the bride and groom? You know that our Brad and Ange are about the ONLY couple who could take the focus off TomKat and I don’t think Tom would like that.

Good Morning All,
She looks really young in this pix. The woman has a lovely smile, doesn’t she?

I read on the last thread that AJ was choosen Woman of the year by some magazine. Honestly, I almost fell off my chair (yeah…that’s right I said it) when I saw that. So let’s see, JA wins Man of the year for 2005 and AJ wins Woman of the year for 2006. Seriously, am I the only who sees the humor and irony in this. The jokes practically write themselves….so ib won’t even bother. :)

Anyhoo, there’s a report floating around about AJ’s bodyguards in a scuffle…..I’m sure it’s gonna find it’s way here soon. Something to note….”an unidentified man” tells the reporter about some racial slur one of the bodygaurds supposedly said, yet for the other accusation, they mention names. Kinda suspect if you ask me.

Thanks Jared.

I am not angie hater here just to clarify before I start on my post! But today what happened in a MUMBAI school by Jolie and her bodyguards is disgusting and disappointing to say the least. For a woman who claims to want to understand faith and culture and a rainbow family and all that jazz today was involved in an incident which proves that she can be a HYPOCRITE!!

Today her bodyguards pushed and slapped small kids and their parents as Jolie made her way to a shoot at a Mumbai school. They called the parents there who protested BLOODY INDIANS and ******* BLOODY MUSLIMS!! Now I am assuming Jolie had to be there as her bodyguards were surrounding her and must have heard that crap

What would she have done had it been Maddox or Zahara who were coming into school and say some politician was coming in and their security guards roughed up her kids? What would she do if someone called Zahara a Bloody Black? Would she just take it??????????????????? Ok its her bodyguards who did all that, but what the heck does she mean by letting them get away with it..

In India we dont have a papparazi like out there, so she must realize that you cannot abuse and treat everyone around you assuming they are that! Those parents didnt even care a damn who she was, some of them didnt even know who she was until told! It just shows she is a hypocrite to talk about a rainbow family and abuse people in another land. No one was harassing her, her security better be more careful considering even Pune was filled with such incidents…

I hope she comes out with an apology or makes them do it! U cannot insult any culture or be racist when u just quote that you are making the movie to bring about and understand different faiths! How can u just abuse people and hit small kids! I think this time Jolie and her security have gone really far! I just hope the Indian govt kicks them outa here ASAP….If she is all what she claims to be she will put an apology out to those parents and young kids…

Those ass like bodyguards need to ***********

How wonderful to see her looking so happy and beautiful.
