Moviegoers Avoid Angelina Jolie?

Moviegoers Avoid Angelina Jolie?

Not likely but The Gallup Organization, a supposedly widely recognized barometer of American opinion (I’ve never heard of it), recently conducted a survey asking Americans “whether or not they make a special effort to see movies starring 13 different Hollywood A-listers.”

Americans gave Tom Cruise a giant “thumbs down” clocking in at 34 percent. Angelina Jolie came in at a distant second, with 18 percent of Americans saying they avoid seeing her movies. That’s 180 out of 1003 votes.

Who received the most positive reaction of any of the stars in the poll? Tom Hanks! Two of his most recent films include The Da Vinci Code and The Terminal.

Pictures include Angelina Jolie recently leaving her NYC midtown hotel (supposedly The Regency Hotel at Park and 61st).

    Who’d they ask? Friends of Jennifer Aniston? They should look at box office results.

  • really??

    The latest Gallup poll shows that Cameron Diaz is the least loved (with only 9%making an effort to watch her film). Why did the Holiday come second this weekend ang grossing only slightly less than Mel Gibson’s film (with 26% positive rating).

    1. Apocalypto $14,166,000
    2. The Holiday $13,500,000

  • jennifer

    well Angelina is a fantastic woman but not a good actress, at least this is my opinion…

  • B12

    No one really believes in polls anymore. The don’t trust election polls or any type of polls because people lie all the time in them. With that being said, War of the Worlds did very well and people said it would suffer because of all the TomKat crap at the time and it didn’t. MI3 was still a big movie for Paramount but not as big the previous two and the studio blamed it on Cruise and his antics. It was an excuse to get rid of him which they had been wanting to do for awhile.

  • maria

    i have to agree with Jennifer, i think Angelina is just beauty and nothing more. Until now i don’t remember to like any of her films…

  • cheryl

    That poll doesn’t take into consideration the tons of people who love Angie and the great work that she does for the less fortunate. Everyone is entitled to their opinions though.

  • guli

    Come on jj, we really had a rough night and this is how you thank us for surviving. We discussed this to the nth degree several days ago. Whatever…..I guess thanks but no thanks…. BBL…………..

  • bdj

    She is also rocking those sunglasses and boots. AJ gives new meaning to the word, “SUPERSTAR”. The whole package is fierce.

  • ?

    She looks beautiful! I would see whatever movie she’s in. I wasn’t polled. lOl

  • vera

    I agree with the poll, i’m avoiding see Cruise’s and Angelina’s movies, they are boring and they are not good actors

  • http://www.justjared.com/2006/12/07/angelina-jolie-vogue-scans/#comments alana

    she has certainly won a lot of acting awards including Oscar, so some people must think she is talented.

    Count me in as one of them who do. I love Angie the actress, mother, activist, lover, human being….

    She is amazing!

    Gallup Poll: Tom Hanks Tops With American Audiences, Tom Cruise Draws Negative Response

    PRINCETON, New Jersey — Bad news for Tom Cruise.

    A new Gallup survey says Americans gave him a giant “thumbs down” compared to other top Hollywood stars.

    Asked whether or not they make a special effort to see movies starring 13 different Hollywood A-listers, nearly three times as many — 34 percent — said they avoid Cruise’s pictures as those who said they seek them out — just 12 percent

    Cruise had the most negative reaction of any of the 13 stars in the poll. Angelina Jolie clocked in a distant second, with 18 percent saying they avoid seeing her movies.

    Tom Hanks had the most positive reaction of any of the stars in the poll. Forty-four percent said they make a special effort to see his pictures, backed up by another 48 percent who said they consider seeing his films. Only 5 percent said they avoid them.

    Mel Gibson doesn’t seem to have been hit too hard by his recent anti-semitic tirade and drunk driving arrest. Gibson’s “Apocalypto” was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend. The Gallup survey shows 26 percent make an effort to see his movies, with 15 percent saying they avoid them.

    The survey also asked 1,003 adults to consider Robert DeNiro, Julia Roberts, Will Smith and more.

    _________________________________________________________________________

    Thank you! That’s exactly what I’ve been trying to say all along. Very few people vote on these polls. Most of the people who watch movies or just say most Americans don’t write on blogs, don’t vote on polls, don’t really care one way or the other about these movie stars as long as the movie is good or looks interesting, they’ll go and see it. Tom Cruise at the height of his craziness last year was in Mission Impossible 3 which was number 1 on opening weekend with over $40 million and raked in. It might have been lower than what the studios expected but Tom Cruises action movies have always raked in over $100 million. MI3’s total box office which I don’t think is that terrible to look at.

    Domestic: $133,501,348
    + Foreign: $262,671,555
    = Worldwide: $396,172,903

    This is why I don’t understand when people come and say that a movie will flop because of who is in it. No one knows how a movie will do because there are always surprises, and to me that is a good thing

    The survey ONLY included 1003 people! How does that small number give them an idea of what the public thinks?

  • betty

    come on people, we all not Angie is not so good actress as that, and please her movies are so few interesting, her act skills are limited in my opinion, and i’m not a Jennifer Aniston fan ok?

  • http://JustJared ATOXIC

    I agree. Who did they ask Jennifer and her friends. Everybody I know loves
    Angelina’s movies. She is a great class A actress.

    You do know that Mel isn’t in the movie, don’t you? He wrote, produced and directed and financed. The fact that it made $14MIL is amazing because it’s not a mainstream action flick or a comedy.

    hi I’m new, I usually just read the posts and get pissed at the ugly spirited X fans. If they come IGNORE THEM!! They feed off of rebuttals. Let them just roll off your backs, the more they talk, the more idiotic they sound. Just a suggestion from a newbie.

  • truth

    Is this another attempt to sabotage her movie?

  • hahahahahaha

    I’m sure Angie is very crushed by this news. The opinions of 180 out of 1003 must really devastate her. She will be committing suicide shortly…

    But PT, the movie was called almost everywhere as “Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto” so it is his movie even if he’s not starring in it. For me, I actually liked that it was number one because he went through a lot this summer.

  • Hafsa

    Hey does anyone know when the Vogue comes out?… GORGEOUS!! i love her! Ill see anything shes in! thanks guys

  • http://www.justjared.com/2006/12/07/angelina-jolie-vogue-scans/#comments leni

    only 180 people out of 1003 say they wont see her movies… and that is supposed to be a terrible thing? Most of them said that they WILL see her films so,.. this poll is no biggie.

    Is this the poll that said that made me think Al Gore had a better chance at beating Bush in the 2004 elections? I remember watching the news channels during that time and since I liked Gore, I was happy that the polls were favoring him only to be disappointed on election night when things went topsy-turvy and we all know what happened next.

  • bdj

    I have never read or seen anything about this Poll until this blog. I was not asked my opinion and this is not a presidential Gallup Poll. It is subjective and people can make up their minds whether to see a Movie or not. I do not base my purchasing power on some small sample poll but the body of the person’s work. AJ has received numerous awards for her work, has a large international and national fan base and a good humanitarian. That is good enough for me.

    ive heard of a gallop poll but not of a gallup organization

    this poll was printed in a tabloid and that is enough for me to discount it…

  • jjoy

    well, i disagree with that stupid poll coz i was not part of it….who are these dummies that dare to represent me….shit…1003 people??? compare to a 250 million population??? SURE….anyhow….don’t believe this stupid poll being financed by that pathetic HUVANE…..BTW, anuston was so upset coz she was not even part of the poll choices of who are the MOVIE STARS???? LMAO….

    and as proven above….how these stupid so called researchers explained why the alien lovin tomkat’s and the drunkin and jew hate spoutin mel’s movies all number one in the BO…..i think this so called poll is being financed by the jealous freaks of these two freaks…..hahahah….business as usual in HW…..

    and as for angie’s acting skill, can someone asked these award ceremonies and movie production people why they awarded angie on her acting skills??? i want to know that…..coz ordinary folks who doesn’t like angie think she doesn’t deserved those acting awards skill….hmmmmm….

  • sassy

    Oh Yeah I tink this gallup poll will really crush Aj/ So much so that this week she is in NY with her husband and children to celebrate one movie opening, she is being honored as part of the most fascinating couple of the year, her husband is two time sexiest man alive and has a magazine coming out that is well anticipated. So yes I’m sure this is going to crush her to have a pity party or even go and scream at the ocean. I think she may get her girlfriends to batmouth the gallup pole so she does not look like the bad guy.

    What a stupid useless pole! Angelina Jolie is a A-list Actor who cares what 180 losers say, who did this pole Jen asking 1003 friends and employees people she paid off the street? Please! I will see every Angie film because she is brilliant!!
    All Angelina Fans lets prove these haters wrong. I will definitley be seeing all her flicks because I have seen every single Jolie film.

  • WhatDoWeSay!

    The Gallup Organization is Jen’s fans! Everyone there are Haters!

  • Observer2

    Actually, if someone could post the entire poll with it’s different questions, you get a different feel for what the respondents actually said.

    When you align all the questions up, more people will g0 and see and a movie with Angelina in it because she’s in it.

    But, the negative gets them ink. It’s what the press does.

    Shame on JJ for doing the same thing.

  • Julie

    Ieuhw, how ugly are those sunglasses?

    About the poll … I wouldn’t avoid a movie for an actor, I think it’s all about the plot and stuff!I’ve seen movies with Angelin that are good and ones that aren’t!

    About her talent … she has some but definitely not one of those top notch actresses!

  • iby

    Well, I do watch all Toms movies and enjoy them. I like Angilina’s dedication to her causes, but now that I think about it, I’ve never like any of her movies. Has she been in a good one?

  • gossippup

    Why is that phrased that way Jared? If Jolie is so unpopular then why is she on the cover of everything and her youtbe videos have so much circulation. Everyone knows that the Oscars will get an audience if she attends. The ugly soccer moms need to get in touch with their jealously and shut their traps. They are just mad that their husbands, sons and daughters are salivating over Jolie and that their idols career is over. X is orange now btw.

  • truth

    Fans should turn out and see her movies. She gives money to the poor, she will be supported.
