Sin City 2: Angelina Out, Rachel In

Sin City 2: Angelina Out, Rachel In

A source close to the production of Sin City 2 is claiming that Angelina Jolie is out of the running and Rachel Weisz is in. Director Robert Rodriguez has always wanted Angelina to star in his sequel Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For but because of scheduling conflicts, it looks like Rachel might be taking on the role of Ava Lord. Rachel Weisz: A Dame To Kill For? Hmmmm…

i’m sorry…i like rachel weisz but angelina jolie was made for that role

# 2

I’m glad Angie may be out… i never believed she would be in it anyways… this kind of movie really s…. ucks. And Angie is focussing her professional career on more appealing dramatic kinda-movies, about real people and real life… not like this… stuff.

i agree with ceci. sin city is the dumpest und most brutal film i have ever seen. it would be quiet awesome if none of the ladies would be in it.

# 4

Rachel is sexy, voluptuous with a delicious voice – the role was made for her. Angelina has a beautiful face, but a humongous head and anorexic body. Nuff said.

# 5

First it would not have taken that long for Angelina to get the curves back. Second Angelina has already done Beowulf and if you seen the computer prints she is already going to play a sexy role in that movie. Third I think she is trying for different roles and this part would have been the same old thing.

# 6

the first time Angie pull out was because she was preggo and now because o scheduling conflicts?????? why Angie, why!!!! :(

# 7

that’s a great news ! Rachel Weisz is awesome

# 8

Angie had her her priority on family, may be this film simply does not interest her.

# 9

Rachel is a great actress, so she’ll be great!!!!

Thank you very much for your concern, care, interest, prayers, thoughts, well wishes, support. I shall never forget all your names in the rest of my life. You have been with me at the time I needed it. I do appreciate what you have done for me.

I have to say it that I am ashamed of myself because when I was writing down my sorrow, I thought that most of you would not care. I was very wrong and I am also very happy that I was so wrong.

I didn’t realise that I have known of some people who live all around the world, would care of my unfortunate situation. It means a lot to me. My English is not enough to describe how I felt when I read your messages one by one last night. Your words touched my heart.

I am feeling empty and afraid. At the same time, I am very grateful to God that I am holding my daughter in my arms.

I feel tired and I have bleeding. I shall feel better in coming days hopefully.

P.S. If I forgot any name of you, I do apologise.

P.S. II: After The Golden Globe, the haters seem to get much more desperate and hopeless. Their hatred and jealousy only show us how much they suffer by seeing the happiness, commitment and love of the Jolie-Pitts for each other. Then, let them suffer! No pity!

Thanks for the new thread JJ – especially as I seem to have insomnia tonight (okay morning now) and can’t sleep!

Came across a little article about Brad and Angelina congratulating Rai and Hasan on their engagement at the Golden Globes – my apologies if already posted.

I have seen that one of the fans of Jen sent a photo of Brad and Jen to approve that he still loves her (I guess?). This photo make me think that the fans of Jen never know Brad like Jen herself.

Brad treats his women good, he is kind and gentleman. He also loved his ex ladies, nobody is denying. But the difference between Angie and the others is firstly, Angie appreciates who Brad is and she is the mother of their children.

The ex ladies just wasted the love of Brad, now they regret it deeply. So, it’s too late!

i like angelina jolie as a person but her overdone monotone posing acting style pisses me off and has ruined every single film she’s been in with a only few exceptions (e.g.”girl, interrupted” since she was playing a psycho anyway). com’on, she’s not an actor by any definition! she’s a celebrity!

rachel weisz, on the other hand, is a real actor and can bring something interesting to the comic book style of sin city. look forward to seeing her in the film.

coalharbourqt @ 01/17/2007 at 6:59 am

Mediterranean – so sorry to hear of all you have gone through recently! You are in my prayers and I am glad to hear you have your sweet little girl there to give you a big hug :-)

Missouri Fan – saw your posts on the last thread – just wanted to say hello and was glad to see you posting as I hear you have some really awful weather right now. I was hoping you’re okay. Stay safe and be warm fellow Leo!

Barbarian/Geisha @ 01/17/2007 at 7:01 am

I find this hard to believe because i think Rodriguez would cast his girlfriend Rose McGowan in the role rather than Weisz (even though Weisz is the better actress).

Either way i hope Angelina’s not in it.

if you read the whole article from the source it is very interesting,please haters read it first and understand.

Is it true that there is nudity for that part?That is the only reason I don’t like her doing it.I still think she will do it because the director confirmed in Italy.

PLEASE IGNORE THE IGNORANT.MISSOURI FAN DON’T EVEN GIVE HER TIME, NOT WORTH IT.LETS KEEP VOTING

I am happy to hear that you are as well as can be. Stay strong …. thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and may God give you the strength to get through this difficult time.

Good morning to all Bamzs fans! Just heard on Fox news that Brad and Angelina bought a house in New Orleans. Off to work be back later.

If this is true, it is very disappointing news. Angelina would have rocked that role. Hopefully Rachel W will do the role justice.

From the last thread…

Thanks Original Curious! I’m glad that you’re loving this one :) I’m having fun writing it.

Thanks Just Jared. I am sure that AJ has a number of Movie roles to choose from. She is an in-demand actress. She will more than likely balance any offers with her family in mind. She is an exceptional actress and can play any part. However, I am sure that she has to be deeply committed and feel right about the part before taking it.

Hey Mediterranean, It is good to hear from you. I wish you a speeding recovery and many more blessings in life.

If it’s true I wonder why they made her out???!

Mediterranean, I hope you have a good recovery. I’m sending you all my love, hun. :)

Hi Mediterranean, I am glad to hear from you. I hope and pray that your body and heart will heal and recover fully. Take heart in knowing that so many people around the world are thinking of you and including you and your family in our prayers.

And greetings to Missouri Fan as well. Thank you for welcoming me in the previous thread. We are experiencing a hard winter in Seattle as well so I can sympathize with those of you experiencing the snow and ice. Hope you stay safe and be warm. I am still voting for Angie for you.

Morning

I have been saying all along anywhere that the subject came up that Angelina I just don’t think she’d be in the role, and at every turn I’d get shot down. I mean I have had some people cuss me out online about my doubts!

After the kids start coming fast and furious and the way Brad talked about watching what he does now because of the kids, and Angelina talking more and more about working less. She just seemed like each time the subject of SC2 came up she was seriously general and non-commital.

T’s aren’t crossed, and i’s not yet dotted and so there still may be a chance, but I’m not holding out for it.

Thanks Jared & Audrey

Rachel Weisz In Sin City 2
By Josh Tyler: 2007-01-17 03:37:41

http://www.cinemablend.com/new.php?id=4304

Almost since the first Sin City debuted back in 2005, it’s been pretty clear that Robert Rodriguez has wanted Angelina Jolie as the star of the sequel Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For. Somehow though, Jolie just hasn’t been able to fit it into her schedule. Now, after a lot of delays on the project, it looks like she may have been replaced.

A source claiming to be close to the production contacted me tonight to let us know that Angelina Jolie is out, and Rachel Weisz is in. Our source, who asked to remain anonymous, says that Rachel is in talks with Robert Rodriguez’s people about taking on the role of Ava Lord, the titular “Dame to Kill For” in the original comic on which Sin City 2 is going to be based. If she gets locked in, rumor has it that Sin City 2 will finally start shooting in 2008.

Now a disclaimer. I hate anonymous sources as much as anyone else. Don’t rely on them, I don’t. Please take the above as nothing more than a wild and completely unsubstantiated rumor until we can find some less anonymous confirmation.

As for Rachel Weisz, Sin City 2 definitely sounds like the kind of movie she’d be interested in. In that sense the rumor works. But I have hard time picturing her as a dame to kill for. I love Rachel Weisz, she’s a brilliant and beautiful actress, but she’s not exactly the same type of smoking hot bombshell you’d get in Angelina Jolie. If you’re looking for someone to play a woman so hot men kill for her, you look for a more smoldering beauty. Scarlett Johansson maybe.

But that doesn’t mean Robert Rodriguez won’t cast her anyway. We’ll keep an eye out for more information on this rumor as it develops.

Okay, what’s wrong with the tabloids like Star and Life and Style? Why they keep going with this triagle nonsense. It come to a point that is really disrespectiful with the 3 of them. Who in their right mind still buy this tabloids anyways.

Mediterranean , good morning hope you are doing better.
Missouri Fan, Amaya, bdj, green lettuce and all other BAMZS fans here I’m still buzzing from the GG. You know what? I have just given up on trying to keep up with threads, if I go back and read what was said before, I’m missing out on what’s going on now. I think with all that’s going on in her life she doesn’t really have the time to do this movie, besides, I think she’s into more meaningful movies now.

The Golden Globes should have been all about Brad, but Angelina being so moody and ******y all night took the spotlight away from him. Out of Respect for Brad She should have faked it even if she didn’t want to be there.
Just makes her look selfish and self centered.

Remember FOREST WHITAKER?! He won best actor and no one is talking about it yet they do extensive coverage on Angie not smiling at Ryan Bubblehead Secrest. The media is F’ed up and that is the real problem. Angie does not owe anyone a smile, she is not a puppet on strings.

What the E! wanted her to say about “What they did today?” was, Angelina to say “I had hot Jungle Sex with my sweetie to help him relax”. The media try to put people in a box, based on past statements or actions.
It might be nice to be filthy rich, but to have mega stardom like B&A, I would have cut a B e e yo tch already starting with the asinine Ryan Seacreast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes Please. :)

Angelina will always be interested in doing “dark” themed films. That’s the only way she would agree to do Mr & Mrs. Smith, if it had a dark but comic twist. Sin City should be one of those creative films that would have been good for her but as she & Brad have said, now that they have children, they are rethinking film choices. I still see her in a great dark David Lynch type film. You can be dark, sinister, film noir without resorting to a bloodfest. She should follow the path of Johnny Depp.

Oh I am still hoping for a Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie film. Not Wuthering Heights.
I can see it as something very comtemporary.

Everybody is better than Jolie. I loved SC1 and for me, Angelina would ruin the sequel. Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson are sexy enough.

Hi Mediterranean, good to hear from you and to know that the procedure went well. We were all worried about you.

i was kind of hoping that angie would do this one…and it sounds like there’s still the off chance that she might. anyhoo, are there any rachel weisz fans willing to help me out? her name is familiar, her face not so much. what else has she been in and should i be paying attention to her?

Passing Through @ 01/17/2007 at 10:49 am

ROTFLMAO! Replacing Angelina Jolie with Rachel Weisz…Gimme a freaking break! I like Rachel Weisz, she’s a great actress…BUT…as a sex siren capable of getting a man to go against his moral code and ethics? Not believable. This about like asking people to believe Reese Witherspoon, Little Miss Wholesome, as a drug-addicted crack ho.

Hi Medi, S
So glad to hear from you.
It is not uncommon to experience all these feelings. Know that It will get better with time. In the meanwhile, surround yourself with the people you love most.
Let them help you through your pain, especially your husband. he is also experiencing a loss.
Post as aften as you wish, I have not been on this board for long, but I notice there are a lot of caring people here, I am sure they will be of help to you if you ever need any.

oohhh I yhink Angelina Jolie is also good for the role but since her priority is her family so its the issue besides Angie already proved that any movie she made was a success in the industry! I love her in this movie but I love her most if shes with Brad, Madd, Z and cutie Shiloh!

Cameron Diaz is better @ 01/17/2007 at 10:51 am

it won’t be as good as Sin City 1 anyway. don’t ya all love it that they dragged jolie’s name all this time as having her attached to this movie. it was all for publicity. notice how they still won’t say it’s definite. They want to keep that interest there.

what made the first interesting was how the graphic novel was translated on film. The cinematography was outstanding. But now? well we’ve see it already. The novelty is gone.

pLEASE LETS NOT MAKE US WEEKLY BIGGER THAN IT IS,THEY A LOOKING FOR THAT.SURELY BY NOW EVERYONE WHO DOUBTED THAT THESE STORIES ARE MADE UP WILL SEE IT NOW.CAN,T YOU SEE NOW THEY ARE ALL GOING BACK TO PICK UP STORIES AND PRETENDING THEY ARE NEW.

The hotel story was written months ago and the writer later admited that they lied because they had not seen Angelina for a long time,so they made it up.when Brad was filming Oceans 13,I hope someone will find that story.

Angelina has worked with a lot of people and they all say she is a proffessinal.I hope people will find and post all the articles were people who she has worked with have said so, thats the best way to kill this story.In fact x is known to being a diva.

jolie & depp would be an interesting onscreen combination. i wonder if angie would work with tim burton…i would really like to see her in a tarantino film. fingers crossed that it happens…

“This about like asking people to believe Reese Witherspoon, Little Miss Wholesome, as a drug-addicted crack ho.”

Reese did play one in a movie called “Freeway”. As for Rachel Weisz, i think she would be a better choice than Angelina Jolie for the role, Weisz is a much better actress.

What IS it with US? They were driving X to the brink of suicide not too long ago b’cuz X had f*cked with them one time too often, but what did Angie ever do to them?

Gitane:

Rachel Weisz is a British actress who appeared in such movies as The Constant Gardener for which she won Oscar BSActress, The Fountain which she costarred in with Hugh Jackman and which came out not too long ago, and she was also with Hugh Grant in About a Boy, and with Brendan Frasier in the two The Mummy movies.

I love Rachel Weisz, but I have to agree that she doesn’t exude that smoldering sexuality that men would kill for — Angie has it, and so does Scarlett Johansson to a certain extent.

============

Gitane, I hope you are not kidding. Anyhoo, Rachel Weisz won Best Supporting Actress Oscar last year for her role in The Constant Gardener. But one shouldn’t blame you for not knowing that anyway, because People magazine, on its post Oscar issue, had on their cover GC (who won BSA), Reese (who won BA), JLo (who didn’t win anything) and JA (who didn’t win anything either). No Weisz (who won BSA) and no Hoffman (who won BA)

I was actually hoping Angie would do another Tomb raider. just one more. lol that would be no for sin city.

just came back from imdb.com and turns out i’ve seen quite a few rachel weisz films, she just never made an impression on me. i’ve seen runaway jury 3 times (my cousin’s in it) and i totally didn’t notice her or connect her face with her name…

Look at Rachel Weisz photo from where this story is originally from

Sexy! But so is Angelina

http://www.cinemablend.com/new.php?id=4304

Rachel Weisz would be a better choice than Angelina Jolie.

US weekly takes lies and rumors from online and puts their own spin on things. whats the point of buying tabloids when youve already read all the crap? they really need new material.

72 ntt

nope. not kidding at all. she’s never made an impression on me. i’ve seen at least 5 films she was in and i totally didn’t notice her. same can be said for naomi watts. she could be standing in front of me and i wouldn’t realize it. hell, she could be sitting in my office right now and i wouldn’t know.

Hey guys, watching the View (it’s on break now) they’re going to talk about Brad and Angelina. I have a feeling that Rosie is tired of it lol I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t enjoy having to explain things to the twit like she’s some kind of child…

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein

What a beautiful quote. I love this guy Einstein, used to be fascinated with his theory of relativity when i was in highschool. Anyways, Dragonfly, you quoted this at the right time at the right place. Angelina is definitely facing a lot of opposition right now and iam sure she’ll overcome all this with great grace and the world will see what a great soul she is.

I did’nt expect the American media to be such hypocrites. And i mean Americans are supposedly the most “open minded” of the bunch. Give Brad and Angie the respect they deserve and GIVE THEM E BREAK!!!!!! FOR HEAVEN”S SAKE!!!
Could someone even undo what the media and the tabs are doing to them?? This is not fair!!!! Do you understand what i mean?

First of all, that PEREZ HILton guy is ruining their lives with his website. Down with PH. And TMZ caters to all stupid dumb people. These both sites if they come down, all will be well. I know that’s not going to happen but i wish these two sites all the ‘bad luck’ for all the crappy stuff they carry. PEACE.

I hope its true, Rachel Weisz is a great actress.

P.S. gitane, you should get out more.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith @ 01/17/2007 at 11:15 am

Guys, I can’t stand reading all the negativity on Angie and so I’m going to try and stay off the blogs and boards for a couple of months. I will also keep away from the tabloid magazines and the entertainment shows. Fans on this site are truly intelligent, funny, witty and it will be hard to stay away but I’ve got to do it for my sanity. Keep on fighting the good fight and I know that Angie and Brad will weather whatever storms come their way and they will be okay.

I think Rachel Weisz would be perfect for the role.

Even The View has run with that tabloid story. OY! Did anyone bother to confirm with Cindy G?

She had all her awards 1 yr 1 movie how can anyoune say she’s a better actress?

OT Anyone following the T.R Knight and Isaiah Washington thing? Isaiah was so out of place to make that stament in the middle of the press room I’m happy that “Izzie” lol calling him out, and this is getting sad but ABC should fire Isaiah.

OT2 People online is claiming that JT and Cameron got into a fight at the Prince party, because he was talking to Jessica biel and I can’t beleive that People is linking Page six as other media outlet who report the incident!

So the character is a strong beautiful siren for whom men forget everything? I can’t help thinking it would not be a very interesting role for Angie: been there… done that. And if Angie doesn’t want the role of course other actresses are being considered for it. Now, I can’t remember a single Rachel Weisz film, but Rodriguez will surely try to find the right actress to play that BD babe.

thanks for the concern, but i get out plenty. rachel weisz isn’t on my must see list. it’s a position that must be earned.

Hi Medi, I wish you well, you’ll recover soon physically and mentally too!

As for US Weekly and all these fictionstory-writing tabs, I’m tired of them. I hope the public sees that their stories are made in fantasyland.

There are many reasons when one is chosen for a movie role, not just acting ability. The factors in deciding who to cast is based on the COMBINATION of the following, NEVER one reason.

1) amount of compensation. Jolie may demand more money because of being more famous. If I were an actor and if I am busy on other things, you had better pay me enough for me to give you my time. This may not be the amount the studio has budgeted for.

2) acting talent

3) agreeing with how the script is written. Jolie may interpret the character different than the director, or they may have different ideas on the details , such as amount of violence, nudity etc.

4) scheduling conflict. Many times, an actor cannot accept a role because of scheduling. Remember, Jolie is alternating parenthood with Brad.

5) The producer or director may want to work with this versus the other person.

Sincity2 may be attaching Jolie’s name in order to generate publicity. If I were the PR for this movie, I may use the same tactic. It seems to have worked for many people.

Rachel Weisz can act circles around Angelina Jolie.

Jay Z was with Beyonce the whole GG. Did we see him having interview left and right ? .As I watch the video of E, ET, AH. she was nice and polite, nothing inappropiate, trying to let the spotlight focus on Brad, afterall , its Brad’s night. I’m glad they are moving to NO and have some peace with kids. poor angelina!

I have no opinion on who is better for the role, but with the timing of the movie shooting in 08, I think it’s better that Weisz get it. AJ is probably planning to be pregnant by then.

Rachel Weisz is a much better actress than Angelina Jolie.

Mediterranean,

I’m sorry, I was away from the site for a while and missed what happened to you, but I understand you are in great distress. I tried to dig through the GG threads to find out what happened to you but just wanted to let you know that I felt so compelled to send you my best wishes and a warm hug, whatever you are going through (health?) that you have us here united in support for you. As I said before somewhere, we came together here in support of BAMZS and thanks to them now became a big family of friends. Whatever it is, every moment counts in life and it’s up to us to make it the best it can be…. we a solely responsible of what we are doing today at this moment. That’s why I respect the way Jolie-Pitt are leading their lives. Be strong, we are here for you.

What happend to Rodriquez’ girlfriend Rose McGowan? I saw that there is a thread on her on JJ. What happend to her eyes? Rose got a little backlash just like Angelina did. Bob Rodriguez left his wife of 16 years and 4 children I think. He quickly linked up with Rose which got tongues with nothing to do, wagging.

Rachel *is* a dame to kill for. Angelina is just an anorexic bad actress with enormous and ugly mouth, no talent at all. I’m glad she’s out. Rachel is a awesome actress, in any kin of movie, from drama to comedy to romance to Sin City-like. Sin City is violent but it’s a great movie, great piece of art.

I dont mind if Rachel takes this role.

Jolie is busy being a mother. Brad has many projects lined up and will be busy. I think, with 3 children, it will be good for her to spend sometime at home and settle with the kids.

Jolie is only 31. She has many years of acting ahead of her. She said in those interviews at “the good shepherd”, that in acting, you can take a year off and come back and you still have a job.

I always feel if you have talent, you can take a few years off and still have a job. Take a look at Julia Roberts. When she had the twins, she moved the whole family to Tao in the New Mexico.

u know its the truth @ 01/17/2007 at 11:31 am

Like always Angie should do what the tabs and haters want from her. Return Brad to his ex and move on with her life. that is the only way she will be left alone. Let Brad be miserable with the X.

WELL SAID. ITA.
But I’m wondering could it be the nudity needed in that role ? Angeline seems less than eager to have this kind of role lately.

I think Angie has been having second thoughts on sin City2 ever since. First, it was fortunate that she preggy when it was first offered to her, but now that she is not, she is still hesitating. I think its really because the role is quite sexy, i believe, and probably requires some nudity and sex scenes, even if its with Clive Owen. You know, when she was single, im sure she would have no hesitation. But with Brad with her now and with 3 kids, Im not sure if she is that open for that kind of sexy and raunchy role right now. Maybe Brad also is not so encouraging her, I know maybe it doesnt bother him, but i think he seems kinda’ possesive of Angie. Maybe he wouldnt mind if she is going to do it with him.

Wow. I can see that FF has let its fence down again. Angelina Jolie is a wonderful actress. I would have liked to see her play this role but its okay if she doesn’t. I hear she has a number of other possible movies lined up.

u know its the truth Says: 11:31 am – Brad is NOT a TOY, he is a human being with feelings.

Funny, now we are comparing who is a better actress. You have your own opinion, I have mine. We can argue back and forth until both of us turn blue in the face, and still the argument won’t end. If judged by the awards they have received, both have won BSA, and others. AJ is a GREAT actress, so is RW. But we are talking about this movie and this director. And as for this role, didn’t you read that Rodriguez has been WANTING and WAITING for AJ to be in his movie, since the conception of it? Doesn’t matter who you think is a better actress, it’s who the director thinks is better for the role. Enough arguing for now.

I am kind of glad Angie is not doing Sin City. I think she said she is now going to chose the subject matter of films she will make, because of her kids. She has done plenty of this kind, and now she is carefully chosing her roles. I like Weisz very much, and this is a new territory for her. I loved her in Constant Gardener.

About Angie being “cold” on GG carpet, it’s because all those stupid TV interviewers harrassed them. I maybe paranoid, but could it be that the certain someone ORAGNE, who will be going back to TV land, had some nasty TV personel planted there to attack Jolie-Pitt on live TV out of spite? Like in, “TV land unite”? I know this is a stretch but I won’t be surprised. Huvaniston’s claws are long and nasty. They even bought Perez thought Cox’s show.

Now she and Brad have more time to grow their family. Angelina has nothing to prove acting wise , box office wise and she has a cult following as evidenced on JJ and many, many other places. You can’t buy the 10 year fanbase that she has.

Golly, I’m beginning to feel like the Mr. & Mrs. Smith poster — maybe I should give up blogging for a while. I cannot believe all the nastiness against Angelina on the tmz.com website, it’s making me feel physically ill. How can so much hatred be thrown Angelina’s way — she is a mother of three, a humanitarian and yet people crucify her like she’s a common criminal and all because of the caterwauling of a TV sitcom hack (to quote Cliniqua).

These haters keep saying that the X was better and more loving with Brad during those award shows. Heck, I remember all those reports that said she did not crack a smile unless the red carpet involved. And when she won an award — didn’t she forget to thank Brad who was right in front of her? While Brad and Angelina were so connected at all times, hugging, caressing, looking at each other. I guess all that affection and hotness is making all these fanistons self-combust!!!!

Did people even watch the Ryan Seacrest interview? Angelina was smiling and gracious, but still deferring to Brad. And during the entire GG ceremonies, inside the Hotel, she was laughing and having a good time with the cast of Babel. What do these people see — I guess it’s true that there is none so blind as those who would not see.

The best thing you can do for yourself and you owe it to yourself. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are quite capable of handling themselves and they are the only ones that knows what goes on in their lives and relationship. You will definitely see things differently in about 2-3 months. Do yourself that favour. Good on you.

Of course you are in our prayers, BAMZS, are family and stick together. Your body will heal, and you will be stronger and be able to go on with life and love your daughter and family. Keep your head up, and dont be afraid, God is with you always. You have a good heart, and you will continue to be in my prayers, as well as the rest of us Jolie/Pitt fans.

Angelina is going to be away in NO for a while, when the media sees she’s not in the spotlight they’ll try to continue using her as their meal ticket by writing lies. It is time for the fans to start writing to the tabloid editors and entertainment shows to stop feeding us with lies. If they cannot tell the truth, the should not write anything at all. In the age of blogs and U-tube, people are intelligent enough to see what happened themselves. Enough is enough. The backlash on lying media should start now.

I am sure Angie had a very good reason to turn down the offer. She knows what she’s doing.

what did Rosie said ?

Can someone post Angie’s interview where she said she will like to stay at home and take care of her children?

Andrómeda @ 01/17/2007 at 11:50 am

Mediterranean: Hello, nice to hear from you again. I really hope that you´re felling better. Take care.

I agree with Besane, who wrote: “I am kind of glad Angie is not doing Sin City. I think she said she is now going to chose the subject matter of films she will make, because of her kids. She has done plenty of this kind, and now she is carefully chosing her roles”.

What did Rosie say? Tell, Tell!! LOL!

+++++++++++++++++
Actually the best we can do is not buy those magazines, tabloids are a business, when a story doesn’t sell anymore they stop caring about it, it’s never about the truth, it’s about $$$$$$$$. Now that she’s done with her work, (only the Berlin festival to attend) she will have a little more peace, the Tomkat show is making a comeback courtesy of The Beckhams (just see the video at TMZ) and while Cameron keeps fighting with JT in public they’ll catch a break.

There should be a backlash on the lying media. We have a job to do to expose the hate and lies. Enough is enough!!!! How do we contact these magazines and entertainment shows?

Not having the role in SC 2 was the end of the world. I’m sure there are lot of other role waiting for her. and I think at this moment Angie seem to be enjoying her role as the other half of Mr. Brad Pitt and mother of his children.

u know its the truth @ 01/17/2007 at 11:58 am

I am happy someone finally stood up for Angie.

What did Rosie said? I want a recap

bunch of loonies @ 01/17/2007 at 12:00 pm

What the EFF is going on here? First, for idiots who keeping saying Angie was sullen at the GG, you’ve obviously didn’t watch the interviews she conducted on the red carpet. First, Ryan Seacrest is a douchebag and second, she was smiling and gracious to him. Personally, i would have gave him a raised eyebrow and ignored him. Third, it was the freaking E! the same E! that has been bashing bamzs over and over and trespassed on their property. Those biatches.

Next, Angie fits this role perfectly but whether she takes it or not is no skin off her back. And still with the bashing her re: acting skills. Get over it. She’s no Fraudiston.

Just watched the View. Rosie commended Angie and Brad for putting the spotlight on places like Africa and NO where the situation is dire instead of soaking it up for themselves. Then she said that Angie has come a long way, mentioning her rough life, then it changed when she became a mother then “she fell in love” (Brad obviously). Now, she’s living her life “above the fray” and using her fame and fortune to help humanity instead of going to night clubs and not wearing panties lol

As I’ve said before, at the end of the day, if you have a loving family to support you, you win. No amount of money, fame, public adulation can make up for a loveless life, a life without a loving partner. The haters know that, and they can see what B&A have, and that just kill them. As fans, we want to defend them, but just look at them, they know who they are, what they have in life, and how lucky they are to have each other. They are very much on the same page on everything: family, career, beliefs, friends, hobbies, etc… Not too many HW couples can say they have that many things in common. So, it’s understandable that haters can’t stand so much bliss. Thinking of it, I think it’s not a bad thing to have some doubters around to keep them on their toes, to keep them from being complacent.

I am starting a movement against lying magazines and shows. Enough is enough. Anytime there is a rumor that’s negative they start running it without confirmation. Some media even forgot to talk that Babel won, all they wanted to talk about was Angelina. Leave Angelina alone, she has never left Brad’s side since they came together.

================

Good for Rosie. I was about to go out, but now I have to watch The View first. Thanks Amaya. Rosie is right in alluding to the like of ParisH, BritneyS, because, think about it, AJ is only 5 or 6 years older than them, and it’s a world of difference between them.

I am happy if it’s true that Angie is not doing Sin City anymore. I did not like that movie at all. I agree with someone, sorry I forgot the name, who said that the movie is too violent.

I see bashing Angelina to make others look good in comparison is still in fashion.

Just to make sure now, I hope everyone did read that the director wanted Angelina to play the role first but because of scheduling conflicts, Rachel is being considered as the second option. When did reading and comprehension go out of style and how do we get it back?

Mediterranean – Thank you for checking in with us. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family to overcome this difficult time. Please take care.

angelina is a mother of 3 children and a partner of one of the most successful actor in the world,i think she is a bit hesitant to accept the role that will enhance the controversies surrounding them.if the director still looking for an actress that will fit in to the role.HOW ABOUT THE MOST TALENTED ACTRESS ACCORDING TO HER FANS,JENNIFER ANISTON.they keep saying she has a body to die for,but how come there is no director with this kind of story wanted her to be in the role.its amazing,A BODY TO DIE FOR BUT ONLY PLAYS COMEDY!THAT IS REALLY FUNNY.

I didn’t like that movie and surely didn’t want to see my girl, AJ, in it.
I’m glad she’s not doing it.

Hi Medierranean! I was happy to see your post. Hang in there. I know it is hard right now, but I know you will be fine. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

Rachel is such a more consistent actress than Angelina. She’ll do better, even if she’s not prettier than her. By the way, what happenned to Angie ? She was so weird at the golden globes, her arm looked anorexic

I forgot to add….the twit actually agreed with Rosie! lol She said something like “They could just be vacationing instead…” And she said that the way Rosie put it she could understand why they people see them as being admirable.

To Mediterranean,
I remember from much older threads here in JJ’s site when you pondered about turning 40. You have been an avid fan of Brad and Angie and it is always a joy to read your post from your part of the world. It is with a heavy heart to know what you have been through and I am wishing you the healing time that you need. Grief is a painful process and takes time. Hopefully, now and then you can still come to JJ’s site as a diversion. Take care!

Let’s thank Cojo for being nice. He said Angie is a true movie star and she has the whole movie industry on her little shoulders. Kudos to Rosie too.

….and last but not the least, thank you JJ for giving us a peaceful forum to speak out.

What happened to The Fountain? @ 01/17/2007 at 12:23 pm

Rachel Weisz starred opposite Hugh Jackman in The Fountain? How did The Fountain fare critically and commercially?

I think Darren A (RW’s partner) directed it, if I am not mistaken.

Jealousy is the reason why Angie was always targeted by the tab. What Angelina had is what most common people dream of. beauty and sexy, hot career, fat account, hot husband, fertile with 3 cute , healthy kids.

Rachel is a good actress but being a fan of the Graphic Novel, Angelina fits better

Funny how we have these Jeff and James coming out of the woodwork saying AJ is not good for a sexy role. Try something else, because women blame AJ for being a lot of things, but no man has ever, EVER said she is not good to play a sexy girl. You made me laugh, and on top of that saying RW is better at it than her. Some men you are. Chinnochio’s fans, is more like it.

The real lou @ 01/17/2007 at 12:28 pm

Mediterranean,I’m glad to hear you are ok.I wish you a speedy recovery.Original jpf,like you I hope Angelina doesn’t do this movie,Hated Sin City.I see the haters want to try to use this as a reason to bash Angelina.At least Angelina is being offered roles in movies,hint hint.She could be doing tv like someone else,lol.:lol:

just watched the view. Rosie praised Brad and Angie for using their celebrity status for doing good. She said that Brad and Angie are moving to NO to get the cameras to follow them so that people could see for themselves that the people in NO need help still. She said that Brad and Angie do that everytime they want to draw attention to the part of the world that needs it. Joy mentioned that Angie was going to stop working and be a stay at home mom. She warned everyone that a large number of stay at home dads would be at the park everyday to be with Angie. She then went on to make a remark about locking your husbands up. This is not verbatim. Elizabeth said that Brad and Angie are always together so no one has to worry. And she went on to say that she gives Brad and Angie credit (yes Elizabeth) for being great humanitarians and good people. Joy then said that Angie does not seek out attention, that people seek her out. That the media and people in general are just drawn to Angie, and can`t get enough of her. Rosie just kept going on and on with the most wondeful comments about Brad and Angie being good, good people. She said that Angie has grown up and become one of the most amazing woman ever. She compared her to Audrey Hepburn. I was very pleased with the view today. Oh one more thing. When Rosie first started to comment on Brad and Angie being so wonderful, Elizabeth made a snarky comment, but I could not here it. I wonder if any of you heard it. You have to be a total moran to not see what great people Brad and Angie are. Has anyone heard anything about Angie not working anymore? I hope not. I love seeing her on the big screen!

Truth, I’m with you, I hope more people will write to these blogs, tabs, and ent shows and show what bs they write, because we know now how they twist the truth.

++++!, I think the real truth is that they are taking advantage of her because she does not retaliate. Imagine the tabloids being sued by VV, JA has called the tabloids all sort of mean names and they still call her America __. AJ is the one that does not have a mean bone in her and yet they want to crucify her???? Is this fair???

Angelina & Brad are true movie stars but they don’t take it that seriously. Brad said that events like the awards shows are a great opportunity to see old friends and make new contacts then everyone fans out all over the country back to work. I think they are respectful of the industry that has help them live a comfortable life which in turn has made them able to do some humanitarian work.
Any talk about them abandoning their craft as artists is nonsense. They will always be artists at heart and their bohemian lifestyle proves it.

B&A looked great at the Golden Globes. I feel sorry for the winners though. the media is making a big to do about our couple but totally ignoring the artists who were recognized. Poor Forrest Whitaker. He does not have the aura of George Clooney but he’s still one of the best actors & directors out there. I liked him from way back. Where were his interviews? he will win the Oscar for Best Actor. The media better do right by him and give him some shine.

AL Says:
Thanks that’s awesome, I hope someone could put it on youtube.

Blogger’s fatigue happens with negativity. Withdrawing from the source for a while is a good coping mechanism to regroup and recharge. So for some Brad and Angie supporters, it is understandable to take time off from blogging. I too have my moments when I happen to skim on a ridiculous or mean post against Brad and Angie. Overall, there are so many regulars who post wonderful insights about Brad and Angie’s love, life together as a family notwithstanding promoting awareness to their humanitarian causes.
Angie said something that we fans should always remember to not focus on the craziness/tabloids but focus on their life together and children. As she said in Vogue, she is committed to life and the future. She and Brad are truly blessed.

AL I didn’t hear the twit’s snarky comment but then again I think Rosie and her are always trying to cut her off lol :lol:

Im not affected at all with the haters since Angie and Brad got Shiloh in this world, and to see their photos together in every country with the kids they are like one of the happy and normal family ever. I believe no one can be together in one roof and having a good kids without love. Im sure they really love each other so much! :)

glad Angie is out of SC @ 01/17/2007 at 12:41 pm

I am glad Angie is out of Sin City .. whoever wants that role can have it . Angie IMO is way above and done with movies in this class. I would love her to be in other movies with better scripts .. not violence.

Also SinCity seems kind of desperate drag Angie name so very often . I think it’s way over doing it . I see another round of advertisment when the show is set to release later with Angie’s name drag in as ” SinCity kicks off without Angie” LOL

well .. everyone , every media wants to drop in Angie’s Name . i noticed Brad name is not tanished as much as Angie. I think it has to do with the fact that Angie does not have a publicist to clarify so the media too the easy FREE for all route and write any darn garbage about her . It’s sad to know the days of responsible journalism is history.

I agree, it’s just ridiculous to say that Angie is not good for a sexy role. She is THE sexiest woman in film of this generation. I think she would have been great in Sin City because playing the sexy siren is her stamp. I would really like to see her in something where she either has to alter her look or they don’t focus so much on her looks that way her talent shines through.

ITA. I find it laughable when people say that they are just together for the children. We are talking about two multimillionaires here — they don’t have to live together, even for the kids, if they didn’t love each other. People who think that they are merely tolerating each other are not thinking rationally.

=======================================

I don’t think there are any entertainers that will take the spot light off the Jolie-Pitts, even with TomKat’s over the top wedding, The B&A were still in the spotlight. I think that Tom and Katie, could be beating the hell out of each other on their front lawn, or Paris and Lindsay Lohan could be doing each other on hollywood blvd. But if they saw Brad and Angie where in their car on their way from the grocery store, They would run for Brad and Angie. I just don’t think anyone no matter what they are doing can steal even the simplist moments from Brad and Angie, Good or Bad?? I dont know

Thanks Amaya and AL for the Rosie rundown. Good for her! AL, as to Angie “not working”, I personally interpret that as she is not going to work while they are in NO, which of course, fits their usual modus operandi, which is one parent works, while the other is chief cook and bottle-washer. Right now it’s Brad’s turn to work and earn some dough. Angie will be acting again. She loves it too much. She just won’t feel the need to do a movie every 6 months for a while.

As someone else already said, she and Brad are artists at heart. The artist in Angie may take a back seat sometimes to the mother, wife, and humanitarian in her, but, as she herself said, she loves all the different aspects of her life, and I take that to mean the actress in her as well. The artist part of her will want a creative outlet, too. And besides, as much as us mothers adore our children, we all know there are times you need a break from them, too. You need the mental stimulation of projects that interest you and feed your mind. Especially if you are the stay-at-home parent. It’s great Brad and Angie can do that for each other.

I agree with some people here, that said that they are tired of all the negativity and tired of all the stupid things that some idiots write about Brad and Angie….I´m tired too!!!. In fact I was thinking to not to visit the blogs anymore because of the haters and silly journalists.

But I love Angie and Brad so much, that I always want to know what they are doing, and where are they travelling, etc. But I hate to see how many bad things some people write about them.

The better thing to do is ignore the haters.

I wish Angie and Brad could have some weeks in peace with the children, in New Orleans. They really deserve some peace.

Joy mentioned that Angie was going to stop working and be a stay at home mom. She warned everyone that a large number of stay at home dads would be at the park everyday to be with Angie. She then went on to make a remark about locking your husbands up.
================

I hope those stay at home dads are as good looking, as rich, as famous, and as kind as BP. LOL. See what I meant on my previous post? Here are women like Joy and Elisabeth living in fear of loosing their husbands to AJ, and yet we have Jeff and James on this board proclaiming that RW would be better than her to play a sexy role. This woman can never win.

Also loved after the “Team Annison” comment Rosie said something about people needing to move on.

ROTFLMAO! Replacing Angelina Jolie with Rachel Weisz…Gimme a freaking break! I like Rachel Weisz, she’s a great actress…BUT…as a sex siren capable of getting a man to go against his moral code and ethics? Not believable. This about like asking people to believe Reese Witherspoon, Little Miss Wholesome, as a drug-addicted crack ho.

=====================================================
LMAO and I so agree with you PT regarding Rachel Weiss, she is indeed a wonderful actress but sexy siren yeah right whatever.

Attention BAMZS Fans!

Here’s a suggestion for those who don’t want to ignore the bad press Angelina is getting. Every time a so-called legit news organization runs a tabloid story (CNN, MSNBC, your local news channel) write them emails, flood their phone lines with complaints. I mean it. Treat it like a 2nd job. LOL Let them know that you are tired of their lazy a sses spreading tabloid lies. That you expect more from them and are tired of getting c rap instead. That you are tired of this witch hunt they choose to participate in. Post their contact information on fansites and encourage others to call and write. This shiz has been going on too long and I’m tired of it.
And it scares the heck out of me, if CNN and MSNBC don’t take the time to check facts about a celebrity story and rely on Life & Style mag and US weekly for their information, what else are they dropping the ball on.

Meditteranean not sure what happened but just wanted to send prayers your way.

Funny how we have these Jeff and James coming out of the woodwork saying AJ is not good for a sexy role. Try something else, because women blame AJ for being a lot of things, but no man has ever, EVER said she is not good to play a sexy girl. You made me laugh, and on top of that saying RW is better at it than her. Some men you are. Chinnochio’s fans, is more like it.

=======================================

Exactly NTT, We all know they are really bitter women, who’s husbands have left them, and probably for good reason. But X’s fans are just like her, manipulitive, and well,,, not to bright.

MrsR Says:

I was watching a rerun of “The O.C.” on TV with my teenage daughters the other day. Two of the characters were discussing stable romantic relationships, and one said “Well, how about Brad and Jen? Everyone thought that their relationship was stable. No one knew that Brad was so very unhappy and just waiting for Angelina to come along and rescue him.” I was so delighted that they’re getting the truth out to our younger generation! And Doug Liman, the MMS Director, is attached to that show. He’s directed a couple of episodes and produced or executive produced quite a few. I checked IMDB to see if he was attached to that particular episode but it was too new, they need to update.

I’d like to see the video where Brad says “Down boy, down” to the interviewer. If anyone can direct me to where I might find it, I’d truly appreciate it.

NO WAY. Angie was perfect for this role. Watching RW in this role would be awkward. She doesn’t convey that sort of dame to me. I know Angie is doing more dramatic roles, but man.. I really wanted her to do this movie.

Rachel is a great actress and i think she would be better in the role than Angelina.

Mrs. Smith @ 01/17/2007 at 1:06 pm

Ryan Seacrest’s immature, and pedestrian style of interviewing, was clearly shown at the GG’s, as he is sadly only used to interviewing people like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, etc., whose claim to fame lately revolve around their going pantyless, or drunk. I am wondering though, as to why Brad’s publicist, Cindy G. allowed them to be interviewed by that idiot, seeing that there is an impending lawsuit concerning the tresspassing on Brad’s property.

Mediterranean, glad to hear you’re back. Take care of yourself.
Thanks Jared.

Good Morning Ladies,

Oh no…I like Rachel, but I can not picture her in that role…seriously, she’s a period piece actress for me. sorry Rachel.

from yesterday blasting of how Angie is so cold/and indifferent to today, she was stress from moving and after looking at all the interview she was fine, she happy and laughing…what’s up with the change of attitude?…well, US story…..they base their story this morning on US, that AJ and family are moving to NO, they are helping the economy there, AJ was looking for charity group and want to meet with other regular mum, want to be in the PTA, learn to bake and cook…(AHHHHHH)…blah blah blah…..So, my point is: the minivan group are slowly turning the tide because AJ is slowly becoming like them…a minivan mum…
(ughhhhhhrrrr).

Are these reportors bipolar or something?…

ok…reporters

I also agree with posters here about AJ just taking a break from filming to enjoy her family life and dedicate some time to her charity work. I agree that as an artist, she will not give up acting. We, her fans, would be devastated if she did. But there is an aspect of the movie business I am sure she is not fond of, that of having to go and promote the films (Vogue, VF, Elle, The View, LK, etc.. anyone?)
I am watching The View right now. No mention of AJ yet.

Hi Med,

glad you are here? how are you my dear?

NEW ANGELINA WANNABE @ 01/17/2007 at 1:08 pm

………………………………

Is Jennifer Aniston making plans to adopt a little baby? Sources are saying that Jen has asked her lawyers to investigate several adoption agencies in Los Angeles. She has apparently been thinking about it for a while and now wants to move ahead. She has also decided to adopt an American baby even though her friend Oprah has urged her to consider adopting from Africa.

A source said, “Jen has thrown herself into adopting and wants it to happen straight away. She toyed with the idea while she was with Vince but began looking in December after they split.”

Hey, at least she’s buying American. HA. I say she’s doing a good thing. At least a poor, innocent child won’t have to face the humiliation of sharing the mug as this ho!

If she does this. she will never live down THE SHAME people will put on her for FOLLOWING the footsteps of Angelina!!

dragonfly @ 01/17/2007 at 1:10 pm

I guess I should comment on the topic of the thread, which is Angie being SC2 or not, and I have to say, I think she would have been perfect for the role…… in 2001. Angie’s grown as an actress and a person, and while I am sure her dark side is still very much intact, I just don’t get the impression she wants to use it that blatantly anymore. She has no need or desire for such in-your-face shock anymore. She appears to want to use her talents in more subtle roles and deep characters that allow her to show how many layers her talent really has. She can’t be Gia and Lisa forever, and I am thankful for that…..aside from x’s fans, who wants to watch an actress take on role after role that is essentially the same as the one she became famous for?

I’d love to see Angie as Catherine the Great, myself.

You’re absolutely right they never picked up the ball to begin with but I’ve never been one to sit back and bite my tongue on any issue. If they want to contribute to the witch hunt then they’re going to hear from me.

With all the interactions between Brad and Angie on the youtube, I’ll say anyone who came off with a neagtive remark is evil. I don’t think the ratings will be good if they don’t get Brad and Angie on the Oscar’s red carpet because most winners this year are new comers that do not have long standing fans. I hope they are nicer to Brad and Angie if they want good ratings. You don’t bite the fingers that feed you.

Rachel Weisz would be a perfect choice for the role, she’s such a talented actress.

oops- sorry for the spelling mistakes. oh well.
Showbiz tonight did a story on actresses who are no longer willing to do nude scenes.
Angelina Jolie and Halle berry were on the list. They also mentioned that Brad said that maybe he would stop doing nude scenes. Then again it was on showbiz tonight. The late night morons!

Mediterranean,

Just wanted to say I’m still thinking about you. I wish you all the best.

Hi Med, actually I really dont know what happened but our prayers is with you. To BAMZS and BAMZS fans you became my cyber friends so all of you are in my prayers. Promise! God bless us all!

Rachel is a good actress, people are saying great, but honestly I’m never wowed by any of her performances. I like her, but I’m not amazed by her either.

She shouldn’t play this role. She doesn’t have the edge really. I mean being a good actress is one thing, but really being able to inhabit the role is another.

Angelina would rock the **** out of this role, because she has that dark edge the movie requires. Anyone saying otherwise just doesn’t really like her, but so.

I can admit that in TGS Angelina was miscast, because she can’t play a WASP, but she can play an edgy dark haired maiden in a graphic novel. This role is made for her.

I hope, even if AJ isn’t going to play it they keep searching for another woman to take the part. Rachel Weisz is the equivalent of having Drew Barrymore play the part.

Hell, call Lucy Lui!

Hi Medi -

Us Weekly’s wrong…what a shock!

The USWeekly article is cited on cnn. If that is not an incentive for the tabs to print lies, then I don’t know what is.
I love what Rosie said on The View. She said she admires B&A for what they do. Thank you Rosie. I love you for being the voice of common sense.

Angie already has an Oscar, I think she said she’s now looking for roles that will not take more than seven weeks of filming. Correct the information if I am wrong.

What? * where is that Q. Tip* I need to clean my ears… Angie and Brad? NO MORE NUDE scene?…what are the worlds has come to….tsk tsk tsk….I’m shock, bewildered and hurt….no fun to go to the movie any more…..*sighed*

4th houses? I know that they have 2 houses in California and now the 4th house in NO, but where is the 3rd?

LOL at Estelle :lol:

So the snarky comment from the twit was “Team Aniston”? She said the same thing yesterday and to top it off she laughed and said “I can’t move on” Enough said.

Original jpf @ 01/17/2007 at 1:42 pm

When Angie did the interview last year with Cynthia McFaddin in Davo’s, there was this something that just felt like she wouldn’t have much of a problem being a stay at home (so to speak) mom. The few times that she’s spoken about movie work of late, she’s just hasn’t emitted any real passion like when she speaks about her family or her humanitarian work. The rounds she made for TGS really didn’t change my opinion that whatever real passion she had for acting isn’t as strong as it may have been before all the changes in her life. When she speaks of her family she lights up. Bring up acting? not so much. Now I dont see her stopping, and I hope she still plans on ATLAS SHRUGGED, but even there she says if the script isn’t right, the movie won’t be made.

She Imo is simply in another place now, and unless a project is something she really feels close to and one that doesn’t overly interfer/disrupt their lives, she isn’t going to be working much by choice. That said, I know some people want to believe that Brad is controlling her and wanting her to limit herself, but I don’t think thats the case. They just wrapped AMH and that was his production. Plus, Angelina is not going to be dictated to about what she shouldn’t and should do. I think it’s safe to say Brad wouldn’t go there.

I see them as two people who found their “natural” partners, and what I mean by that is Angelina was always really a alpha/earth wife/mother at the core, and Brad was always this alpha/earth husband/father at his core and that’s evidenced by just how easily and quickly they blended/merged/melded their lives together. It’s almost eerie how comfortably intertwined in every area they are including of course their respective careers. So while I’m feeling secure that Brad wouldn’t try and micro manage what work she did do, I do believe they both have made a decision to discuss and ponder strongly how a particular role might affect the family should they choose to sign on. JMHO

Original jpf–I get that impression also. I think her passions now are her family and her humanitarian work. Not to say she’ll quit acting, because she has said the income and visibility help her by bringing in money for and visibility to these causes. But, like all mothers with young children, she’s discovering that those years are so precious and they go SO FAST. Unlike the X, she doesn’t need her ego fed with fawning red carpet appearances and media blitzes to make her feel better about herself. She’s a real person.

Brad & Angelina have talked about living so many places and settling on none so far so why did Ted C and LaMie try to ignore that? because people will generally choose not to investigate further, and especially if it’s about ammo. They talked so much trash on another site about the move it made me ill, but now I’m better because the truth won out in the end.

Those first 3yrs that start post Blob period are really like make or break IMO and plus it’s such a fun time. I totally agreed with her about that part. They smell sweet, they’re soft and cushy, and when they’re passing a bit of wind the smile that’s not a smile is cute, but love them like crazy they are a bore for about 3mths. When the turning over, gas-less grinning, finger following begins, then they aren’t so blobish anymore.

but I digress….

I bet their kids are more stable, happy and learned than most, and I know that if their parents weren’t famous, they’d still be the same kids because Angelina & Brad are those kind of parents. I feel so sorry for Britney Spears sons this is that period you can’t get back. The formatives years, and she has the opportunity to be with her children without worry of money time, but she seems to not choose to do that, and she’s going to end up with two very rich K-Fed replica’s and that aint good.

Hey there, I was taking a mini-break after GG’s. BTW- in Turkey engagemant rings are worn on the right hand, but I am positive that is the case in some other countries… Heck, it is something I just noticed, she could have worn something much more huge and fancy….Probably JMHO :lol:

Scheduling conflict, my ass! She changed her mind about it because Sin City does not contribute to the sorely needed sanitization of her image.

Angelina Jolie might not win popularity, however she remains the most fascinating person either in negative or in positive way for more than 5 reasons: 1) she does not care for small talks, chats, gossips, ill-speaking mostly made up by the media and the tabloids, as they live on headlines, on bad news much more than on good news. 2) She does not care for being called the best dressed or most beautiful person, she is not for superficial appearances that might be nice for the eyes but not necessarily for the heart. 3) She does not care for limelight and hollywood, as they chase after her, but not she after them. 4) She does not care about possessing nor about having, as being is much more important for her. 5) She does not care about people’s judgements as long as she can fight for justice for the most vulnerable persons of the society. Many people hate her for the reasons that she questions their empty sense of life. But there are many other people who appreciate and admire her for non-compromising behaviour when it concerns 6) raising social awareness, 7) fighting for justice, 7) protecting children and people in need, 8)keeping the truth-self, 9) searching for the essential meaning of life and finally 10)taking care for those she love no matter whether they are her biological nor non-biological children… the mother of all.

Us Weekly is rewritting strikes again!

—-Jennifer Aniston may still hate him but her BFF, Courteney Cox, is extending the olive branch to Brad Pitt.

Us Weekly recounts this moment between the superstars at Monday’s Golden Globes.

Courteney Cox (with hubby David Arquette) approached Brad Pitt, who responded with a bear hug and said, “Hello, sweetheart. It is SO great to see you.”
The group chatted about their kids, with Pitt quipping, “We did Finding Nemo, but they’ve been off that for a while. We have a 5-year-old!”

Angelina Jolie, standing a few steps away, finally gave an awkward hello before leading Pitt away.

——

People Magazine, posted BEFORE Us Weekly:

Spotted on the patio at the Beverly Hilton at about 6:35 PT: Jennifer Aniston’s best friend Courteney Cox and husband David Arquette making their way toward her ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Cox and Pitt hug each other warmly, and Pitt turns to Jolie saying, “Meet some great friends of mine.” After a brief hello, Jolie and Arquette start to turn away, but Pitt reaches out to his old buddy – and gives him a hug around the neck and a kiss on the cheek. A moment later, they go their separate ways again.

Us Weekly is rewritting strikes again!

—-Jennifer Aniston may still hate him but her BFF, Courteney Cox, is extending the olive branch to Brad Pitt.

Us Weekly recounts this moment between the superstars at Monday’s Golden Globes.

Courteney Cox (with hubby David Arquette) approached Brad Pitt, who responded with a bear hug and said, “Hello, sweetheart. It is SO great to see you.”
The group chatted about their kids, with Pitt quipping, “We did Finding Nemo, but they’ve been off that for a while. We have a 5-year-old!”

Angelina Jolie, standing a few steps away, finally gave an awkward hello before leading Pitt away.

People Magazine, posted BEFORE Us Weekly:

Spotted on the patio at the Beverly Hilton at about 6:35 PT: Jennifer Aniston’s best friend Courteney Cox and husband David Arquette making their way toward her ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Cox and Pitt hug each other warmly, and Pitt turns to Jolie saying, “Meet some great friends of mine.” After a brief hello, Jolie and Arquette start to turn away, but Pitt reaches out to his old buddy – and gives him a hug around the neck and a kiss on the cheek. A moment later, they go their separate ways again.

^^^^

And even though PEOPLE ran the story first, which do you think will get labled the truth? Why the one that paints Angelina as ackwardly leading Brad away of course! Please, this is a prime example of why its simply wasting time to argue with the haters. We know which story came out first yet this new spin will get more attention because it buys into the lunacy and I waste my time with it, plus its a bore.

Hey there, I was taking a mini-break after GG’s. BTW- in Turkey engagemant rings are worn on the right hand, but I am positive that is the case in some other countries… Heck, it is something I just noticed, she could have worn something much more huge and fancy….Probably JMHO

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Hey Guli….to support your statement, I found this on a website with some details of the signification of wearing a wedding ring on the right hand. Which by the way, I noticed Brad has been wearing a gold band as well on his right ring finger.

http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/46046

In 1549, the wedding ring finger changed from right hand to the left hand for Protestants but Catholics continued to place the ring on the right hand.

Today, almost all Christians accept the wedding ring, helped by the Christianity’s old vena amoris tale. Both ancient Egyptians and Romans thought that a vein of love called the “vena amoris” in Latin ran directly from that finger to the heart

It varies all over the world but a person can wear a wedding band on either hand. In China for example the bride wears the wedding band on the right hand and the groom on his left. This custom for “nan zhuo, nu you” is used in Chinese fortune telling. They believe that the right hand commands more influence and the woman is in charge of house and family.

Japanese call the ring-finger kusuri-yubi, in German Arzt-Finger, in Latin digitus medicinalis and in Old Anglo-Saxon it was called lech-man, all meaning medical finger because it was the finger doctors used to apply herbal medicines, powders and ointments. If applied by the left hand the medicine would be enhanced by the mystical energy of the physician’s heart.

Scandanavian women wear three rings, one each for engagement, marriage and motherhood. Jewish brides have the ring placed on their index finger, since that is the finger with which they point to the Torah as they read.

In a few European countries people wear their wedding bands on the left hand but the majority wear them on their right hands. In the Netherlands Catholics wear their rings on the left while others wear them on the right. In Austria Catholics wear their rings on the right hand. Orthodox Christians, Jews and Eastern Europeans wear their wedding bands on the right hand. Many American Orthodox wear their rings on the right hand; others choose to wear it on the left. Russians also wear wedding bands on the right hand.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, but I really don’t think about what is/isn’t going on there. I honestly don’t spend much if any time thinking about the subject.

Angelina Jolie will always be fodder for people given to jealousy and pettiness.

First of all, she is too beautiful – and resentful superficial hags will NEVER forgive her for that.

Then she is too open to life, unprejudiced and free – and the narrow-minded morons who live according to preconceived ideas will NEVER forgive her for that.

Then she is too courageous, honest about herself and genuine – and those who live in fear and illusion will NEVER forgive her for that.

And, to spread salt – and pepper – on all the raw wounds above, she is with probably the most coveted man in the world – and that’s against all odds and a sin NEVER to be forgiven.

So, do not hope for fairness or common sense when dealing with those who prey on Angie. Their quarry has nothing to do with misguided piety for some trite sitcom actress (with whom several boring hags do identify, but that’s only a corollary, not a cause) – it is much more visceral and reflects their own inadequacies.

Therefore I prefer to enjoy Angie and Brad, their beauty, their work, their enthusiasm and creativity and focus on what they bring to a nicer world. No time for people who hate. No time or disposition for negative trivia. Thus said, I believe people should be held accountable when they vilify others and legitimate news organizations corrected whenever they do shoddy work. Facts are facts are facts are facts. :)

Gussie— neither am I, I could care less, but I couldn’t help but notice the rings. I was married before thank God no kids and after 4 years of being together we got divorced. We are still great friends when he comes in to town we still meet for dinner, hubby doesn’t mind since he knows him and I have been together for over 23 years and raised three kids, so its OK… I really don’t hate ____ I want her to be happy too, those two were not meant to be together for the long haul IMHO…..

Brad & Angelina have talked about living so many places and settling on none so far so why did Ted C and LaMie try to ignore that? because people will generally choose not to investigate further, and especially if it’s about ammo. They talked so much trash on another site about the move it made me ill, but now I’m better because the truth won out in the end.

Oh I went to US Weekly site and omg those people over there and nasty, I can’t believe they are actually believe like that in the world, to have so much hate for people you don’t know it just plain crazy; and US Weekly is ragging on Angie big time, that website is crazy

3rd house in Santa Barbara.

^^^^

It’s really the 6th.

The Los Feliz compound is comprised of 3 houses. The Malibu house makes 4, the Santa Barbara house makes 5, and if they did actually purchase in NOLA that makes 6. Also, if the rumors of a home being built in Springfield are true (grain of salt) then that would make 7.

I wonder if “they” bought the NOLA house, or if Brad bought it for them.

Brad and Angelina are probably already married.

I sure hope you are not calling me a hater. I just pointed out to her rings. I have been here for two years loving and defending this family! Thank you….

I’m all for the idea of commitment rings. :)

As for the ex-wife… never watched an episode of “Friends” or any film with the woman… I rarely bother with light romantic comedies and only when the actors or the director are already some of my favourites. Granted, I find whinny woman irritating and am repulsed by co-dependant personalities… but only wish them redemption.

“We did Finding Nemo, but they’ve been off that for a while. We have a 5-year-old!”

I don’t see a problem with the US weekly version. What was Angelina suppose to do? honestly I don’t believe people or Us weekly.

Here is another version of the reunion.

“Maybe it’s just me but Angie’s multiple script tatts looked a bit paler than usual. Perhaps a touch of foundation or powder toned them down? Beefy security guards stood by in case anyone tried to speak to the hot couple. But Angie made conversation with several stunned women already under the heat lamp and David Arquette chatted with Brad but as one onlooker/listener noted, “He was kind of babbling and didn’t make much sense. It was weird.””

Angelina is not only a classic beauty, but also a genuine, generous,
unique human being in the best meaning of the word. She is not some
cheap actress, as many of them are. I know it sounds “a lot”, but she
deserves that to be said about her.
I will never understand why Mr. Pitt has not said a thing to prevent
all the vicious attacks she had to suffer – not for two months but for
almost two years! That way he allowed ANYONE (!) to say just about
ANYTHING about her. No consequences for him.
IF there was an affair, HE was the responsible one for HIS childless and
FRUITLESS “experimental merger” – not Angelina. He wanted to spare
Aniston’s “feelings” ( that TV-actress said he was not even her type, AND
she has done so much damage to the JP’s) ?! Or, was it all just about him?
I do not even remember him saying something nice that Angelina
certainly deserves – and so many did say. She had such a positive
influence on him, and she is a mother of the kids he wanted all
his life.
Not so long ago, at the time she was filming The Smiths, every man
was drooling over her. Was she a trophy for the 12 years older
Pitt? I do not like Mr. Pitt (see above!) Excuse me you who do
like him, but I do not see WHY.

There seems to be a HUGE backlash against Angie – I’ve never seen so much negative stuff written about her. It’s disheartening, really. Everything from the Vogue article, then Gala, then the Golden Globes with Ryan Seacrest. I’m feeling very discouraged, y’all. Cheer me up.

As I’ve said before, at the end of the day, if you have a loving family to support you, you WIN. No amount of money, fame, public adulation can make up for a loveless life, a life without a loving partner.

The haters know that, and they can see what B&A have, and that just kill them.

As fans, we want to defend them, but just look at them, they know who they are, what they have in life, and how lucky they are to have each other.

They are very much on the SAME PAGE on everything: family, career, beliefs, friends, hobbies, etc… Not too many HW couples can say they have that many things in common.

So, it’s understandable that haters can’t stand so much bliss. Thinking of it, I think it’s not a bad thing to have some doubters around to keep them on their toes, to keep them from being complacent .

I totally agree with you. The more bashing on them, the more they will be UNITED to fight against one common enemy and that’s just natural.

Just watched the View.

Rosie commended Angie and Brad for putting the spotlight on places like Africa and New Orleans where the situation is dire instead of soaking it up for themselves.

Then she said that Angie has come a long way, mentioning her rough life, then it changed when she became a mother, then “she fell in love” (Brad obviously).

Now, she’s living her life “above the fray” and using her fame and fortune to help humanity instead of going to night clubs and not wearing panties. lol

I am also getting a bit discouraged seeing all the negativity in the media towards Angelina. I thing it is terrible and very much out of control. It is not just the FF, DListed,and Perez Hilton anymore. It is the US Weekly blog, Daily News, Access Hollywood, some Cable channels, certain foreigh media, and some Hollywood personalities themselves.
It is very sad and disheartening, and in my opinion it is beginning to show on Brad and Angie’s faces. I mean he is looking older than his years, and she is loosing so much weight. I feel bad for them and the fans.
Will this triangle ever break?
What can be done?
How did it get so bad like this?

Nice try, but you’re not fooling anyone.

The crab mentality in Hollywood is a way of life, the people who are on top are pulled down by envious and evil people. If there is a backlash against Angie, it is only in the tabloids and some mean-spirited blogs. Brad is Angie’s strongest supporter in everything in their life and vice versa. No comment and silence yields a more powerful statement when rumours are just fabrications. They have showed us in 2005 when the media frenzy about their relationship was so much worse , that keeping to their own truth is more important than justifying to the press their actions.

I dont worry about Brad and Angie. The most important thing is management. Management does NOT mean you have to run to the press and refute this and that. Brad is a zen master in this. He does has his own strategy and style.

Brad is very SMART. I’ve been reading and observing him. Dont underestimate him. Remember when he broke up with Paltrow, all fingers were pointing at him? During that time , Brad has emerged unscathed even though Gwen didnt clear anything until a few years later that she was the one to blame. I have a lot of respect on his management style and ability.

As for Angie. She is a strong woman. With Brad coming on board, it’s a very powerful combination. Some people may say they are opposites. But actually they complete each other. What one lacks, the other makes up for it.

I have optimistic about them in every aspect of their lives.

what i’m not understanding is the panic over “backlash”. angie and brad both have been getting constant and consistent sh*t for the last two years. what’s changed? nobody is saying anything we haven’t heard before, over and over again wrapped in different packages of disdain. the only difference i see is that now there are more people publicly defending them while their detractors continue to hold on to the juvenile notion of Team Aniston and Team Jolie.

i developed a thick skin. i laugh at the negative crap because i’ve seen it recycled so much in varying degrees of inanity. it doesn’t ruin my day. most of it is just shallow nitpicking and any major damage is eventually retracted. it’s not a big deal. the jolie-pitts are happily living their lives their way and all this slander is nothing but a nuisance.

Can we get the e-mail of the contact people to these magazines? Please post and let us collectively present our concerns. We also need to know what these editors do with the money they make for all these false news. What have they contributed to New Orleans etc. If they want to criticise someone else for doing good, we’ll like to turn the heat on them.

^^^^

Of course all are free to do what they want, but isn’t this getting to be a little over the top? This isn’t about life are death issues, or some human rights violation happening here. Excuse my presumptions, but I really think even Jolie-Pitt would think the time could be better used. These are tabloids doing what tabliods do and it’s part and parcel when you’re a celeb. JMHO

did you see JJ’s main page? OuttaTouch or InStyle or some such rag is floating the rumor that brit brit’s preggers again! if she is, and this has already been refuted, would you guess the baby to be k-fed’s, isaac’s (?), or paris’?

Your opinions are welcome.

I’ve been more of a lurker than a regular poster but I can’t help coming out after I read all the negativity about Angie. As a BAMZS fan, I can understand why some fans are getting worried for Angie. I, for one try not to worry about it. Haters will be haters. It just shows that Angie and Brad are really the power couple to beat. I bet a lot of envy, jealousy and grinding of teeth are going on. Afterall, their detractors have been trying to ruin them esp. Angie. She is no stranger to this kind of animosity or hatred. Angie is not what she is now if she has “onion skin.” And Angie won’t be where she is now if the people that admire and like her believe the negativity aimed towards her. Obviously, Angie and Brad have more fans than haters. They can’t break her no matter how hard they try as long as we fans keep believing and supporting them.

BABEL still has “legs”, just like “the good shepherd”. All you have to do is look at the gross from week to week. It does slope down. But all movies do. The most important thing is to look at how steep the slope is and is it falling off the cliff.

In BABEL and “the good shepherd”, it is very STABLE. So it does have legs. remember the tortoise race, slowly but steadily to the destination.

Also BABEL hasnt opened in Japan. Japan is a BIG market.

I think Perez’ site has a little parody of the britbrit preggers thing – it looks like an ad with a fake pregnant Britney asking “Is it, like, yours? If you’ve partied with Britney recently and you think it might be yours…” something to that effect. Very clever – almost as good as Lilo’s “Adequite” water ad. Of course, there’s been an official statement from her camp denying the rumor.

Back to the previous topic – I don’t mean to ‘panic’ about a supposed ‘backlash’ – I’m just the sensitive type who gets her back up whenever someone speaks unfairly about my gal. No matter what she does, it’s going to be interpreted one way or the other, depending on how you feel about her.

Please write POSITIVE posts and watch out for the bait.

I really hope people are not falling for this doom and gloom ****.I watched ET,Extra and Access Hollywood IT WAS ALL GOOD!I refuse to watch E so I have no idea what they said nor do I care.PH,FF and Dlisted is not main stream America,they do not speak for the masses.I saw nothing negative on the news.B&A helped the GG have the highest ratings in 3 years,believe me who ever is doing the Oscar planning is watering at the mouth as we speak.
**********************************

I really agree with ya. I admit it still gets me riled up when the negative BS comes in waves and bucketfuls, but I just keep reminding myself that most of America does not blog or read tabloids and the negative crapola is the minority. The majority of the mean comments about Angie went right under the radar, IMO. I think alot of America is surprised some people are still talking about a 2 year-old Hollywood divorce like it is even remotely relevant. There were no negative letters posted in People mag following the family Cambodia pics, and I think of all the celeb vehicles out there, that one is probably the only one the masses take seriously….. and not even everyone reads People.

We, as the uber-fans we are, see more negative shine-ola thrown at them because we are on these blogs and such. Most regular Americans don’t pay a whole lot of attention to tabs and gossip shows, they see it for what it is (bubblegum for the mind)…..but put Angie and Brad on network TV, and obviously people pay attention. They want to see them. I think the image that Angie and Brad conveyed the other night was very postive overall. Love is contagious.

Hey everyone…

I see that some are suffering from battle fatigue and, honestly, so am I. But the worst thing about it is that some BAMZS fans are responsible for it. Lately, people have been very good about not tracking b^ll$h*t onto Brad and/or Angelina threads, but there is always room for improvement. I do have to admit, the line between b^ll$h*t and the truth is getting blurred for me. I’m not talking about last week’s madness, but the GGs. I’m not going to rehash anything else, but I have to admit that I may have jumped the gun about Seacrest, mainly because I wanted Angelina to crush that pathetic, botoxed worm. Vicariously living through Angelina… does that sound familiar to anyone else here?

More that anything, I want BAMZS to have enough wiggle room to direct their own paths. Whether it leads to being stay at home parents, doing more films, or concentrating on philanthropy, it’s entirely up to them. It just galls me that people feel that they haven’t suffered enough or that they are supposed to suffer because they made decisions about their own lives.

I love this board, mainly because it was an oasis from the hateful b^ll$h*t, and lately, we’ve enjoyed waves of peace and serenity here. It is up to BAMZS fans to maintain this environment, unfortunately, we haven’t arrived at a consensus regarding how to handle haters. I do think that ignoring helps, but I don’t know if that’ll be enough.

I agree. I also think we should all e-mail her within a certain time slot. We need to get organized with this idea. If she is bombarded with a large amount at one time, she will be aware of the strong following Angie and Brad have. There is strength in numbers. We could start with the view and then hit the nasty tabs.

So, maybe he is looking for a ghost writer kind enough to finance the book promotion as well.

Brangelina Bashing @ 01/17/2007 at 5:20 pm

The bashing has begun you loonies because of all the people who have complained vociferously to these publications, especially People, about making this nauseating couple “saint-like”. They are self-serving hypocrites who only do their “good deeds” for the publicity. There are so many people, some famous – some not, who dedicate their lives to helping those less fortunate who do not ask for publicity. These two alert the media to everything – they want privacy and a normal life so they annouce to the media where they are moving to – DUH. BTW – nobody wants to hire her anymore because only 18% of the public would go see her in a movie – guess that is you gullible fanatics. The sane and rational 82% of the population know what a media blitz their publicists have done to try and make them good people – didn’t work!!! BTW – does she have any friends not including those she pays to be?

Just another tidbit, which you all may already know….forgive me if this is a repeat…

freidaflo @ 01/17/2007 at 5:24 pm

326 curly,

Thanks for the list.
I have seen -WATER- movie by D. Mehta
I borrowed it from the library. About India , womens and children’s rights and also history. There is so much to learn from this movie. Very sensitive subject. I hope it wins the OSCAR.

To Stardust, Lucky and other Indian posters. Please let us know if the movie’s storyline is still happening in India.

The explosion of cra*** so-called news concerning Angelina should have been expected, and was expected by me. She shows up at the GG, looking more beautiful than ever, held closely by Brad, they show that they are a major lovedup pair of people. He does not take a step or two away from her side in any of the pixs or videos I’ve seen without immediately looking around to see where she is and then reaching for her. Their appearance together on a red carpet, both glowing with love for each other, their oneness totally on display for all to see, elicited all kinds of feelings in people. Fans were happy, others were rendered speechless, and some were made absolutely miserable. So of course the tabs and blogs that depend on the unhappy would try their best to find a way to capture some of those unhappy folks. That’s the only way they can stay in business. No surprise at all.

What I saw was how strong the bond is that now exists between Brad and Angelina. He is so proud of Angelina. He is so protective of her. His body language was she’s my love, my lady, and don’t mess with her or else. Angelina is so proud of Brad, and so happy to be with him. Her expressive eyes never left him, she was always aware of where he was. Her body language mirrored his, they leaned toward each other constantly. They are in their own world, dealing with everything as a couple, a family, able to tune out any negative vibes. Their love is not masked from others anymore. And this is what the unhappy also saw, that pierced and shattered their delusional detached from reality dreams and has driven them into a feeding frenzy to find some fault, to deny what is reality. They’ve lost the battle and they know it.

I’m home from work for another day due to ice and it is enjoyable to read JJ in the daytime.

#330 You got your figures mixed up. It’s the other way around. Next time do a better research.

Hi freidaflo,

I just watched Water last night, from Netflix. You are right, it was heart breaking. I read that D. Mehta completed to a trilogy (Fire and Earth), but Water was the only one I watched. Did you see “Born into Brothels”? It was another movie that I had to take breaks, too overwhelming.

I am not from India but read a lot on the country’s fascinating culture, to some extent the story line may still be going but I too would love to hear from Indian posters about it.

cheers

_____________________________________________________________

Beautifully said, Gussie! Loves it! With your permission and with due accreditation, of course, I will be re-posting this on as many A-hole blogs as I can find, (beginning with FF lol) on every thread.

People give these desperate women/men too much credit. They go from blog to blog hating on BP and AJ and for what purpose? BP and AJ are admired worldwide. The only ones bashing on a consistent basis are these Jen hens and miserable women who have made it their life mission to do just that.
These people are not affecting BP and AJ lives one bit. They have gone from crying over a Hollywood divorce to hating on the fans at Just Jared. This is not a war and there are too many issues to worry about in the world. Issues and problems that BP and AJ have focused much of their humanitarian efforts on. Gossip blogs, tabs and rumors are inconvenient problems that BP and AJ have to deal with from time to time. 99.9 percent of the time BP and AJ are focus on their lives together, their family, their careers and their humanitarian work. Those that think they have some great power and affecting BP and AJ lives are simply deluding themselves. No one has that power in BP and AJ lives and no one should have that power in your daily life. If people want to waste their lives defending a Hollywood divorce and a contrived “ America Sweetheart” by attempting to smear others, then let them. I rather live my life dwelling in the positive and wishing BAMZS all the best that God will give them. Peace to all.

It’s almost midnight in France, I would like to ask the ones who experienced the unfortunate incident like mine; how much bleeding is it accepted as normal? My doctor didn’t say much on the day I had operation. But how can I decide what is normal for bleeding?

When someone is hurting, some stupid thing make you much more sad irrationally. I was reading the headline of Britney, it hit me bad.

Because of my pregnancy, I was not carrying my daughter around in my arms who loves to be carried around. I told her that there was a baby like her in me. I thought that she did understand me because she never insisted again. Last two days, she has been touching, caressing my abdomen and saying “babe, babe”. Although I explained to her on last Friday that the babies were gone, she keeps doing it. I hardly hold my tears, because I don’t want her to see me crying again. She has seen enough.

As I said, something hurts you deeply more than it should when you are hurting.

I am doing my best to keep my mind busy with other things but it seems that it will take some time, longer than I had imagined.

Sorry for the headache! Good night all! God bless you.

to poster 333…I agree with you..just had a look at the US weekly pol and 80% of people think a backlash is due for this couple…20% do not…so that would correlate to the roughly 18% who would go and see one of her movies whilst 80% would not.

i’ve watch the view this morning and rosie who was very nice with angie compared her to audrey hepburn….love it!she talks about branjie like once a week or so.

Factual and lovely posts, kk1 and bdj. Thanks for posting.

ITA. I too noticed the same pen(wo)manship across the blogs, with no change in the style of writing. Even the message above (re: bashing) repeats the same phrases from previous threads. I have not been around JJ as long as many of you have been, but all the time I have been lurking, I felt that reading similar bashing messages over and over again resembles looking at a chewing gum chewed 10 thousand times before. One would expect the writers of these messages would at least sharpen their writing skills, find sui generis expressions for their feelings. One other point, as you noted, is that with so many problems around the world, especially if one is actively involved in humanitarian work, the recent media streams makes one ask “tabloids who?”. I did not go to Pakistan after the devastating earthquake, nor I visited a child-center for treatment of children with HIV/AIDS, preventing their stigmatization in their own society as JPs did, but I talked to street urchins, people living under poverty line during my recent visit to Turkey to get a sense of how poor perceives poverty. And honestly, tabloid descriptions of “publicity”, “did not laugh” so and so forth reads nothing but trivial. My regret is that the very writers of these comments can not conceive this trivial preoccupation in their thoughts.

BOYCOTTING @ 01/17/2007 at 6:06 pm

Apparently US Mag is getting nervous…a post simlar to the one below was posted and up an hour ago, now it’s down.

5:58 PM BOYCOTT US MAG Says:

That’s WEIRD. WHY DID JANICE MIN take DOWN THE POST WHICH DESCRIBED HOW ANISTON’S PR MONSTER, STEPHEN HUVANE MADE HER LOOK LIKE A FOOL ON NATIONAL TV, WHILE ANGELINA NEVER DID ANYTHING TO HER – and YET, SHE’S GONE ON THE ATTACK. IS HUVANE NOW BUYING OFF RAGS & TABS THAT ARE AFTER MANISTON (like E-MAILING PEREZHILTON)?? WHAT DID HE GIVE YOU JANICE?? AN EXCLUSIVE STORY ON THE TWO SIT-COM HACKS PARODYING YOU ON SOME CRAP BASIC CABLE TV SHOW??? DO YOU GET A WALK ON PART LIKE PEREZ TOO?? THE POST ALSO SAID US MAG WAS NOW GOING TO BE BOYCOTTED BY MILLIONS OF ORGANIZED “BRANGELINA” FANS FOR THEIR NEGATIVE B.S. ATTACKS ON ANGELINA SO OUT OF THE BLUE. DID MIN NOT LIKE IT THAT THEY POST POINTED OUT THAT STEPHEN HUVANE HAD PAID HER OFF TO NOT TALK ABOUT MANISTON ANY LONGER & HE SUGGESTED SHE NOW GO AFTER JOLIE?? THAT MAKES MIN A SELL-OUT EXTRAORDINAIRE…AND A STUPID ONE AT THAT. YEAH, KISS bleep of THE PERSON WHO MADE YOU LOOK LIKE A FOOL ON NATIONAL TV — and GO AFTER THE ONE WHO NEVER DID ANYTHING TO YOU. YOU SLIME ANGELINA WHILE SHE’s JUST TRYING TO WORK, RAISE HER KIDS, AND BE A HUMANITARIAN…BUT THE PLASTIC TV SIT-COM HACK who MADE YOU LOOK LIKE A D*MN IDIOT ON THE TODAY SHOW, GETS A PASS??? REAL SMART. YOUR ON IGNORE. US MAG WILL BE LEFT ON THE RACK BY FANS of THESE TWO WONDERFUL PEOPLE FORTH HENCE, UNTIL YOU STOP WITH THE SLANDER! WHAT A DUMB MOVE. US MAG WAS THE RAG OF CHOICE for BRANGIE FANS, BUT THAT’S OVER! ((((BOYCOTT)))) (((((((((((((((BOYCOTT US MAGAZINE — ALL BRANGELINA FANS – THIS MESSAGE WILL BE POSTED ON SITES EVERYWHERE!!)))))))

———————————————

I think all fans should do this when we see something we don’t like about Brangelina – let them know, we will not patronize them.

Do not buy, do not watch, do not read.

Send it to whatever e-mail contact they have posted on their website, or post on their message boards, if they don’t have that – go to their subscribe field, and post you name as ‘Boycotting your Magazine’ with a fake address of course, lol.

I’ve found it works – these outlets need to know that they are losing patronage for this kind of unethical behavior – these kinds of lies, and negativity should not be tolerated.

Thanks for the tip…. I will look for BORN INTO BROTHELS.
JUst got into foreign movies recently. Don’t mind reading the sub titles.
The sceneries, traditions, cultures and history of other countries fascinates me.
Ahh… the Jolie- Pitt influence…

I’ll try to look for Turkish movies on my next trip to the library.
Thanks again.

Well, that sucks. If Ava is depicted with full-front nudity as in the book, I’d rather have seen Jolie (though I don’t know if she would’ve rescinded her “no more nudity” policy, as reported months ago). Weisz is okay looking, but not somene that I wanna see diving into and then climbing out of a pool naked.

“glowing in love” I’ll try to remember that in a few years. I just love romance novels. Quick, easy, full of “love” and in the end, you just know that’s not reality.

Tijen, Curly and Medi we really need to get together in Turkey, you know guys we have several others that lived in Turkey(not Turkish) that I have been exchanging emails with. They lived in Turkey for several years due to their military service and they have been so wonderful about their experineces in Turkey.

SO Jared and Audrey when are you guys going to join us in Turkey :lol: Whoop. that would be a blast reporting from Bodrum at Guli’s house .

Tijen, well Estelle talked me in to coming back until I leave spring break in Merch, but I’ll be there until mid-September, what about you????

____________________________________________

Quit talking to yourself b**ch. lol

First of all, AS USUAL, people who failed in the public school system have MISREAD and MISCONSTRUED a simple sentence.

The poll question does NOT ask “is a backlash due for this couple?”

The poll question asks if there is “a growing backlash against Angelina?”

In case you further cannot comprehend what you also cannot READ….the poll could be answered by fans and haters alike – the answers don’t necessarily align to who hates AJ and who doesn’t.

I, as a fan, could think there was a growing backlash and vote yes.

*(Are you really this DENSE?)

Not that I ever WOULD vote that way, as I know this is a MANUFACTURED POLL which has an ULTERIOR MOTIVE. That being, to try and convince the public there IS a backlash and that people don’t like Angie. If that becomes the message of the day – the stories can then be all negative all the time.

They will run into a problem however, as I believe there are MORE people with integrity than without, and MORE people who DO NOT lie, slander, slur and plot. As long as there are people with sense in the mainstream media tamping this b.s. down (Rosie, People Magazine, ET, etc.) the tabloids and rags of this world like US will not prevail.

…also kk1, I LOVED your post – it was fantastic!

Take a good look at where Brad’s hand is.It just can’t get lower.Naughty boy.

I don’t know what to say except that you are in my thought and prayer. Be strong my dear, I know it is very hard right now for you and your daughter.

Regarding the bleeding, one of my friend’s sister had a miscarriage last summer, she said the bleeding is very heavy for few days, but after that it should slow down, like a regular period, but I think you should contact your doctor if you think the bleeding is too severe….rest and drink lots liquid. Be well.

with love and respect,
Estelle.

Guli,

I am planning to go and check up on my parents in October. That would be just in Ankara, but I would love to visit you in Bodrum and Medi in south of France or in Istanbul any day.
Medi, I will ask physician hubby about your medical question when he gets home. I think some bleeding is expected. Take care of yourself.

Amaya,

Thank you for chapter 6. I was going to ask you, but I finally finished reading this thread and I’m glad that you’ve post the reminder.

Love chapter 6, LOL, this story is getting better and better. You are a genius…thanks again.

Needy Jen @ 01/17/2007 at 6:27 pm

Look I am also so sick of all of this smear campaign against Angie who i admire so much. I love this site and from now on in support of her I will try to post as much as I can. I think we as loyal supporters of theirs should do something about it. How can this happen to someone who have done so much just because of one wicked witch who refused to move and get a life of her own.

I agree with all those who say to ignore the hater’s attacks and pathetic attempts at luring BAMZS fans into a fight.

But I have to mention something. The issue goes way deeper than what’s happening to Brad and Angelina. It’s the blatant hypocrisy of the media, not just the tabliods or the blogs, but also by the mainstream media in regards to how Angelina is painted as a woman to be hated and Aniston as a woman people should adore. It’s a smear job. And it happens all the time to many other people. It’s the idea that the people can be bought off to paint a certain image of a public figure. It’s the idea that the people who tells the “news” can’t be trusted anymore because they will tell the story that is most believable and most beneficial to them, even if it’s not the truth.

It’s disturbing to see what’s going on. It’s the idea that because Huvaniston was being exposed for their lies and because they didn’t like that, they decided to buy some in the entertainment media off. Perez and US magazine were damaging Aniston’s image that she spent years on perfecting and molding into as America’s sweetheart. So Huvane and her decided to pay off or manipulate the press in their favor. Those who don’t want to believe that Huvaniston do have a hand in this somewhere can choose to have their own opinions. But I do believe that someone was payed off in the background to write about Aniston in a positive light.

What’s also disturbing is that the mainstream media cites tabliods as sources for their stories and that so many news organizations get so many facts wrong. The line between serious news and what should be considered light and fluffy infotainment has been blurred.

I can’t write more right now, but I just wanted to briefly mention this. BBL.

I pick Rachel over Angelina anytime.

hmmm that’s truly a bummer! it’s more exciting if Angie got the role. Don’t think I’d be anticipating to watch the movie.

My preference is mostly on the so-called Third World (there is no second world anymore but…) cinema mixed with European (French especially). Very few HW movies, except the select names, and no prize for guessing. I would suggest as a director Nuri Ceylan (Distant or Climates) as an example of Turkish cinema. He should have a website, so you can check in advance if his directing suits your taste. I am OK with reading sub-titles, lately I saw Casino Royal (BAFTA) in Russian and had to make up my own subtitles, it was fun but I still have no clue about the plot.

RE the us weekly poll @ 01/17/2007 at 6:34 pm

They must read JJ B&A fan posts. They read about us getting all upset over the lies and use it to make a poll on their site. Why would a poll on their site matter anyway they let the crazies run the comment section and im sure those are the people clickin on the poll. Us weekly Blog sucks almost as much as their magazine! Why would angelina of all people deserve backlash? Just For being one of the most famous people in the world? Or did she do something else that im not aware of?

speakupfans @ 01/17/2007 at 6:35 pm

My point mainly is that ever since all the triangle thing started, Angie has never done anything except humanitarian work and to raise her kids. She was not the one caught in an almost drunk driving, she was not the one in casinos. I encourage fans to please speak up so that Angie can feel the encouragement that all her hard work and dedication is not in vain. The backlash poll is for what, I don’t understand it?

January 17th, 2007 at 6:01 pm
It’s almost midnight in France, I would like to ask the ones who experienced the unfortunate incident like mine; how much bleeding is it accepted as normal? My doctor didn’t say much on the day I had operation. But how can I decide what is normal for bleeding?

When someone is hurting, some stupid thing make you much more sad irrationally. I was reading the headline of Britney, it hit me bad.

Because of my pregnancy, I was not carrying my daughter around in my arms who loves to be carried around. I told her that there was a baby like her in me. I thought that she did understand me because she never insisted again. Last two days, she has been touching, caressing my abdomen and saying “babe, babe”. Although I explained to her on last Friday that the babies were gone, she keeps doing it. I hardly hold my tears, because I don’t want her to see me crying again. She has seen enough.

Sorry for the headache! Good night all! God bless you.

******************************************************

Medi –
You had the procedure 2 days ago, correct?

If so, for the first 24-48 hours the bleeding should be bright red and heavier than a normal period. By now, the third day, it should be slowing down and turning more brownish. If it is still bright red and heavy, you need to consult your doctor. Also, if you are running a fever or having cramping every hour you should also call your doctor. I am a RN and I used to work Labor and Delivery, and that is what we always told our patients. In addition to resting, try to drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated, too.

It’s perfectly ok to take this time to just be sad about the whole thing. Like I said before, every life deserves to be mourned, and if you take the time right now to do that, rather than letting other people tell you to cheer up because you can have other babies, you’ll find you will, indeed, feel better sooner rather than later. It’s going to be ok, really. I will say a prayer for you tonight.

Piper, I don’t remember when you started posting here, but it used to be brutal in here when JustJared was just a blogspot. The difference is that the non-fans come here to be ugly, but the responses were so intelligent. It got so bad they started attacking the fans, I remember The Real Lou was just Lou then, and for some reason, she sure did attract them then. We were taunted that Brad and Angie will not last a year, she will never get pregnant for him because she did not want to ruin her figure, it was just a fling and he will go back to Jennifer. We had no foresight what will happen with their relationship, all we had was faith and intuition that Brad and Angie together make a lot of sense.

Fast forward 18months, when we have so much more information from both of them about the strength of their union, the birth of Shiloh and the continous successful careers, why would we let the naysayers get the better of us. The annoying thing is that negative stories that can easily be ignored is brought to JustJared by the fans, and then everything is magnified as if the world is coming to an end.
Angelina has received bad press because she has refused to live her life as society dictates. I love her because she dares to live her life as she sees fit and as honestly as possible, and in the process she has done her share to help humanity.

When Commerce secretary, Ron Brown, died in the plane crash, Clinton said on his behalf, the work we do to help others is the rent we pay for being on this earth, Angie at only 31 has paid her rent for her lifetime for the work she has already done. If Angie woried about critics she would never get out of bed, but she has a more fulfilled life than all her critics. She has a man who loves her completely, and whom she thinks the world of, she has beautiful children, money in the bank, respect of her peers and the humanitarian community and a job whenever she wants one. How many people have that much blessings.

If Angie is worried about being liked, she will hire a pr agency, or live a false life and forever be afraid of her shadows like most celebrities.
I believe Angie would rather be hated for who she is than be loved for who she is not.
Ignore the morons and the tabloid, and when columnist or legimate media follow the tabloid then write them if you are so inclined, and when Shitzygal posts her deranged musings, she can be slapped down.

Sorry for the long post, and I wish B&A fans will not see every tabloid bull sh*t as a conspiracy against them, it is all about money. If we stop subscribing to the triangle and there is no more money to be made from it they will stop, but right now, it makes them money.

Huvane Hyperbole

Now we know who’s behind Jennifer Aniston’s extreme exposure of late. He’s Hollywood publicist Stephen Huvane, who, according to a quick Google check, has served as the mouthpiece for many of the overexposed “A-list” flashes these last few years — from Jens Aniston to Gwyneth, Hunt, Liv, and Julianne.

Evidently, a measured approach to managing his clients’ public images is not in Mr. Huvane’s PR playbook. After writing about Ms. Aniston’s excessive media presence last week, I was again underwhelmed by her semi-naked appearance on the cover of GQ, and interview by phone (presumably clothed) with syndicated gossip doyenne Liz Smith.

Ms. Smith did reveal Mr. Huvane’s quid pro quo for granting access to his (now) newsworthy client,

“Although our 10-minute chat was obtained with the promise — extracted by Jennifer’s p.r. sultan Steve Huvane — that no personal questions would be broached, I had the feeling Ms. Aniston wouldn’t have had a breakdown had we be [sic] been so bold. But a promise is a promise.”

Mr. Huvane, the younger brother of CAA EVP /uber-agent Kevin Huvane, one of six Huvane siblings from the Bronx, holds the cards — at least by Hollywood standards. If he directed one of his clients to stand on Hollywood Blvd. holding a sign, the client no doubt would oblige given the family’s position on the Tinseltown totem pole.

It kind of reminds me of my first boss, super-flack Bobby Zarem, whose brother headed the plastic surgery department at UCLA. Now there’s a brotherly connection worth exploiting!

Aniston Exposed

I ask if it’s possible for Jennifer Aniston to be more overexposed? The former TV sitcom star, aspiring movie actor, jilted lover, newly in-touch with her estranged mother, is simply (and annoyingly) everywhere: “GMA,” “Larry King,” “ET,” “Access,” the tabs and weekly rags. This will not help her career. It may even hurt it.

Organizing media interviews for an “A”-lister does not require much effort. The weight of the celebrity and a simple story line like, “Jennifer’s on the romantic rebound (with another A-Lister)…and she has a new movie…typically does the trick. Once the booking is made, the star is set free to answer reporters’ questions, often with pre-negotiated interview parameters. Relatively little is done with the star in the way of advance messaging or preparation.

The goal (and challenge) for PR advisors lies in assuring the A-lister remains on the A-list throughout his or her career. A measured approach to media exposure helps nurture and propel that goal. Too much unmanaged exposure in a condensed time frame can hurt. Tom Cruise, you agree?) Even Paris Hilton, once the media rage, has grown very tired. Watch her less-exposed cohort Nicole Richie land a role on “The OC” and surpass Ms. Hilton in legitimate celebrity. Few, however, will surpass her in notoriety.

mechanism of the us mag poll @ 01/17/2007 at 6:45 pm

to #333 and truth

Let me tell you about this US magazine poll :–

Over the weekend, I voted, clicked, clicked, and again clicked…. You can keep clicking without even having to wait. I clicked 5000 times, bringing one of the poll to 10,000. That translates to I, a single individual contributed to 50 percent of the vote, very significant indeed !!

The point I want to make is, this is NOT a scientific poll. Anybody who use the resulting data is clearly UNEDUCATED. If you go and brag about that, everybody will laugh !!!!

The voting at us mag is meaningless

Today, I saw another voting. I did NOT do any click, not one single one, because I am trying to figure out something which I dont want to say right now. I’ll wait until the voting closed. Then I shall tell you something which I am working and observing now.

Montserrat @ 01/17/2007 at 6:47 pm

I was just going to respond to the US Weekly article and then it hit me.
Guys its so obvious I am surprised we didn’t see it. Isn’t JA returning to TV on Dirt. I will bet this is to turn people against Angie so JA gets all the love for her return to TV. I mean did you not see that they announced her return on the same day as the Glden Globes. It did not make a dent in cyberspace. So they want to build the momentum for her return. That’s what this is about. Note its not about Brad and also note there are clear discrepancies in US Weekly’s version of the meeting with Brad and the Arquettes and Angie being a diva article.

The same US weekly polls that said Vince and Jennifer were the real deal and will last longer than Brad and Angie. Common people, please don’t even dignify them. Who could forget Paris when Angie supposedly gave Brad a black eye and kicked him to the couch. How can they survive all that and then worry about Angie being a diva, she certainly will not be the first neither will she be the last Diva.

I know I said I was leaving today for a few months but I couldn’t help myself from coming here. OMG, I love love love your post because I wasn’t on the internet at the beginning of the relationship and did not know how ugly it was. So, Angie has gone through worse stuff said about her and she’s still a survivor. I watched The View today to see what Rosie said and Rosie is my new hero. I was talking to my brother and we were wondering if Rosie defended Angie due to her experience recently with DT. You know how basically no one in the media was really going after Trump for calling her names and all that crap and even though they were thinking it was stupid and childish, they weren’t saying it to his face. I think Rosie would have liked to see people in the media stand up for her and since she likes Angie she decided that she would no longer keep quiet about the JP’s and Angie in particular and instead defend them.

I try to ask Daily 10′s Debbie Matenopoulos if she got any scoop from tonight’s funnyman, but Deb can’t get over her girl crush. “If Angelina Jolie were ever to approach me, I’d become a lesbian,” she says, reliving the highlight of her night, when Brangelina walked into the Golden Globes. “She’s just that gorgeous.”

WHAT! The second the RS was done, she made a stupid comment about her. Piece of trash.

Thanks for your kind words. I certainly will not buy US again. US has fallen to the level of the Nat Enquirer, its sister publication Star, and the Globe (they always print true lies and they are proud of it). US used to be better but I refuse to support their negativity toward someone who is just trying to live their life with their family. I regularly read People as they try to be as accurate as a mag can be, do some source and story checking, and Brad and Angelina go to People when they have something to say.

And for those posting those stats from US website re who will see Angelina’s movies, don’t they know that most of the world doesn’t read that blog? Movies are now making the most money overseas in the world market, and the US portion of that market is shrinking. All the studios know this and are ramping up their overseas divisions. Brad and Angelina are international stars and their movies make money in the world market. Look at Babel, over $60 mil, more overseas than in the US. Babel is making a profit for Paramount. And profit is the name of the game for movie companies.

The people most angry toward Angelina (and its all about Brad, they could care less about the _______ if the truth be told) are like that dolt on the View, EH. They are insecure as women, and fear everyone and anything who is “different” from the insular group they function in. They are frustrated and use catchall terms like “homewrecker”, which no rational intelligent person would ever use to describe another person who is not in the construction business.

People stay in a relationship that nourishes them, if that ingredient is missing the relationship is over. The fearful bashing people would do well to nourish those they are in a relationship with instead of wasting their time in knocking someone else who is happy in a relationship that is working.

to all the Jen fans -

If you are trying to brag about the us mag poll, everyone will laugh at you. Anyone can vote repeatedly, no waiting whatsover. So it can be 1 person voting thousands of times.

I cant believe those jen fans are so UNEDUCATED.

If you dont believe me, go try for yourself.

Ok, I’m confused. What stupid comment did she say? When did she anything? I remembered hearing two female voices in the background with one questioning AJ’s quiet, and the other person was (as I recall it) suggesting that Angelina might be feeling uncomfortable being at the GG’s after spending so much time in africa, and I took/felt that she was speaking about the opulance etc. I had no reason to take it as a dig since Angelina has said more than once basically the same thing. Is this what you’re talking about?

jpf

reading those posts from Jen fans, I wonder what is the demographics of these people. I have a feeling they are high school, or some grown up who are on welfare.

I cant believe these people. Their logic sucks !!!

Observer2 @ 01/17/2007 at 7:24 pm

I’ve no doubt that Huvane might be behind all of this. Us Weekly checked he and Aniston a few weeks ago by posting pics of the sources within her camp without ‘outting’ them.

What’ very sad for Us is that they use a UK tabloids version of Angelina’s Vogue interview as their source for a new story. The photoshoot was 4 months ago and the Vogue interview is now a month plus old and this week’s issue is now talking about it? Why? Because Us Weekly doesn’t have a clue what is going on with them. It’s my guess that Janice Min got her yearly numbers and PEOPLE magazine thumped Us Weekly, especially the weeks when Brad and Angelina were their cover stories. Min is pissy, stomping her feet, screaming for Brad and Angelina to pay attention and they’re not.

Cindy let Us Weekly go to print with their story that Brad and Angelina were making a permanent move to NOLA, making it apparent, that Us Weekly’s story was bull.

Min and Aniston have alot in common, Brad isn’t playing ball with either.

I’m more interested in seeing this film now that Rachel Weisz is in it.

Is this what you’re talking about?

Hey all,

I don’t know if this was posted already because I went straight to leave a reply. It was just confirmed by Brad’s rep on ET that they are NOT moving to New Orleans. They will be there as long as Brad’s shoot taks. I think we heard it here first that the US Weekly article was not legit. There were some very good arguments for it by some astute posters. Good going BAMZS fans. Now The View, all those news stations are going to have to retract and correct their statements. The lesson here is that you do not quote from a tabloid.

I deeply resent that. I am a regular American, probably just like you. I have a Bachelor of Arts and work for the federal government in the Department of the Army Police. I never post because I just enjoy reading everyone’s comments about Brad, Angelina, and Jennifer. Some are funny, some are mean, and most are right on target…. Cliniqua that is you, you are about 96% right most of the time. But you, Levi, took it over the line. If asked specifically if I were a fan of Brad I would say yes. If asked specifically if I were a fan of Angelina I would say yes. And if asked specifically if I were a fan of Jennifer I would say yes. My friends and I enjoy getting together when we have the time and we gossip just like everyone else and some of them are only Brad fans, some hate Jen, some only love Angelina, and some even hate Brad and like Angelina and Jennifer. And they are ALL either high school or college educated with nice families and NONE are on welfare. If you were to make that comment about Angelina fans I bet Cliniqua would rip you a new ******** and you would deserve it. Just because someone has a different opinion than you does not make them a degenerate or uneducated.

Rosie praised Brad and Angie for using their celebrity status for doing good. She said that Brad and Angie are moving to NO to get the cameras to follow them so that people could see for themselves that the people in NO still need help .

She said that Brad and Angie do that everytime they want to draw attention to the part of the world that needs it.

Joy mentioned that Angie was going to stop working and be a stay at home mom.

Elizabeth said that Brad and Angie are always together so no one has to worry. And she went on to say that she gives Brad and Angie credit (yes Elizabeth) for being great humanitarians and good people.

Joy then said that Angie does not seek out attention, that people seek her out. That the media and people in general are just drawn to Angie, and can`t get enough of her.

Rosie just kept going on and on with the most wondeful comments about Brad and Angie being good, good people.

She said that Angie has grown up and become one of the most amazing woman ever. She compared her to Audrey Hepburn. I was very pleased with the view today.

piper, with a low @ 01/17/2007 at 8:02 pm

Regarding when I joined JJ…

I think I started posting when People announced Angelina’s pregnancy. I used to post at Perez’s sporadically; the people were nasty. They kept telling Brad and Angelina fans to go to Just Jared and eventually, I did. Perez’s site is toxic; JJ was decidedly better and it is my mainstay.

Regarding E…
E! News just proved where their head is at. They just pointed out that Jessica Biel’s GG dress was the same dress that Hillary Swank wore in 2004. They then read Jessica’s statement regarding this fashion faux pas. I repeat… E READ JESSICA’S STATEMENT REGARDING HER FASHION FAUX PAS.

This is E’s priority; rinky-dink matters that means jack squat!! That’s why they have a well-wore path to ___’s door.

Slightly OT… Isaiah Washington
Dude’s clearly has a self-destructive streak, and frankly, I think that he’s out the door. Isn’t it funny that he was given a second chance, his transgressions was covered up by the network and collegues alike, and yet, here we are again, and it was only a few months ago when the $h*t hit the fan.

Now look at Angelina… she confessed her self-destructive behavior years ago; didn’t get a hand up, and didn’t get protection from anyone. She carved a career for herself, adopted and cared for a child on her own, perform humanitarian duties for the UN, as well as spearheading personal ventures. Now, she has two more babies and a man to take care of; fortunately, for her, her man will reciprocate big time! And f^ckers are angry?!

And finally… I was watching Fox News this morning… yes, I’m a liberal and am still surprised that my eyes didn’t melt out of my head. Anyway, they were reporting a story about a family whose 5 month old son has a form of leukemia. The family put a website asking people to get tested and contribute money to offset the costs of treating the baby. A man, from my homestate of Michigan, posted or emailed the family questioning the validity of the baby’s illness and stating, point blank, that he would neither get tested nor contribute to the baby’s treatment. Naturally, the father replied to this man; a back and forth argument ensues, and apparently escalates. Finally, the father posts the man’s contact information on the site, encouraging others outraged by his conduct to let him know. The man, in turn, contacts Microsoft and Microsoft shuts down the site for 5 days. The family created another site, but they lost potential donors during that 5 day period. And for what? Some dude who made the choice to visit that site and could’ve gone on with his browsing.

This guy is a $h*tstirrer, plain and simple. This is a grotesque example of the personality types that we’re dealing with on an ongoing basis. Yes, these people’s nastiness can be demoralizing, but as you can see, they could show their natural @$$es in worse ways; actually, they have, during Angelina’s pregnancy.

It’s sad, but not surprising, which makes it all the more sad.

Hi all,

I do not know if this is true and apologies if it was posted before but according to a Turkish newspaper, Oscar nominees for foreign movies are

Days of Glory (Rachid Bouchareb)
Water (Deepa Mehta)
After the Wedding (Susanne Bier)
Avenue Montaigne (Daniele Thompson)
The Lives of Others (Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck)
El laberinto del fauno (Guillermo del Toro)
Black Book (Paul Verhoeven)
Volver (Pedro Almodovar)
Vitus (Fredi M. Murer)
=========================

These films are the ones that were submitted by the different countries to the Academy. They are NOT nominees yet. The Academy will decide which ones to nominate, only five of them will make the cut.

I’ve seen Volver, Black Book, The Lives of Others and El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth). This last one really blew me away, it was cruel, magical, visually stunning, a dark fairy tale – go see it in the big screen, it’s worth your time and money.

Mediterranean, good to see you back. My best wishes to you.

Firstandlastpost, if you are lurking, I just saw The Queen. Helen Mirren did a good job, but I don’t think she should win BA award. Of all the actresses nominated, I have only seen her, Merrill Streep, and Pen Cruz, and of the three, I think PC deserves to win. As for the way they portray her character in the movie, it’s exactly how I think she must have felt at the time. Stoic, “duty first, self second”, “the way she was brought up”. I remember watching the funeral on tv, with her bowing to the casket, and while the whole world wept for Diana, I wept for Elizabeth. I found some quotes in the movie that made me feel for her again today, eg, when Tony Blair said to his wife something like:”she has dedicated her whole life to this country, and now they fault her for not bending to the bullying of the mass.” or when she said to him:”(what she was subjected to) was not humility, it was humiliation. She was raised according to higher standards, and she expected others to rise to her standards. She was disappointed in Diana, and I don’t blame her. So I like the way to movie portrayed her, and Tony Blair, but I don’t like the character of Phillip, nor that of Charles. Phillip was made into a caricature.

123 Says…

I had not seen that picture at the GG table. They make a beautiful couple.

Guli says…

Guli, Shiloh is so beautiful in that enlarged picture. She is going to be a gorgeous lady.

I think like many have said we should focus on the positive. The tabs and blogs run with the stories that get the most hits. Ignore the hate esp when it gets you mad!

I seem to remember that he and the ex were oh sooooooo in love.
***************************************************

The operative words here are “the ex”. Ex=former, was, before, not at present. If those memories make you happy, then good for you. Maybe they were oh soo in love, or maybe they just appeared to be that way to others.

The present is Brad and Angelina, and Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh. The present is a couple and a family that is joined at the hip, that refuse to be separated from one another for more than a few days at a time. Brad has said in a very recent interview that “he likes to keep the brood (“his family”) close”; he also said just this Monday at the GG that “we were parents first and the rest of it grew from that”. Brad essentially has now confirmed exactly what Angelina said in Vogue mag -”that Maddox calling Brad dad was the key element leading to the development of their relationship”. When Mad called Brad his dad, a family began.

happiness, you can try to deny this all you want to but BRAD PITT wanted a family with children. He did not want to continue to be with someone who did not feel as he did. Couples who truly want children adopt if they are unable for whatever reason to have biological children. In a 6+ year relationship, no children appeared.

He wanted to be with and is with someone today who wants what he wants. He has demonstrated that he totally loves his children no matter how they came to be in his family, wants a large number of children, and wanted a mother for his children who feels the same way that he does. Angelina is the woman Brad loves now in the present. He and Angelina love and/or support each other in their interests – travel, motorcycles, flying, their careers, architecture, helping others, and THEIR FAMILY WITH CHILDREN (his deeply desired bonus). He loves his woman who is happy and proud to be a stay at home mom when he is working, and he is happy and proud to be a stay at home dad when his love is working. This is the present, and Brad is a happy man today.

Phillip came across as really cold, but it came from a place of protecting his wife, not the Sovereign. Charles seems like a grasping chicken$h*t. Ironically, Elizabeth was the most relatable, second only to the Queen Mother, IMO. Maturity may have swayed me toward the Windsors’ side, but the movie drove it home for me.

Angelina won’t be in Davos

While last year’s meeting made media waves with appearances by stars such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Forum chairman Klaus Schwab said there were weighty matters ahead for the 2007 gathering of political and business leaders.

“There are some very crucial issues in the world that have to be addressed,” Schwab told a news briefing at the Forum’s headquarters on the shores of Lake Geneva, listing climate change, energy and geopolitics as top concerns.

Noting that a few rock stars are due to attend the Davos meeting — but Jolie was not — Schwab said the conference was focused more on participants from traditional power circles.

“We do not need such (show business) invitations,” he said. “This year it happens to be just Bono and Peter Gabriel, and I think it’s right.”

(I wonder where they got the name Mondo Bongo -hmmmmm)

Neighbors have seen them come and go and can’t be more tickled that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have moved into the French Quarter.

“It’s great if they’re here to stay and to be a part of the community,” said Rayna Nielsen, who lives across the street from the early-1830s masonry mansion where the celebrity couple has been spotted in recent weeks.

Nielsen said the street was closed off while the couple moved in earlier this month.

Pitt’s latest film, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” has been filming in New Orleans since November.

Real estate records for the house, which is near the French Market, show it was purchased for $3.5 million in cash on Jan. 2. Neither Pitt nor Jolie are named in the transaction. Mondo Bongo Trust is listed as the buyer.

A real estate listing for the property shows the house has a grand spiral staircase, elevator, gourmet kitchen, a large private courtyard and a separate two-story guest house. It also has private parking for two cars a luxury in the French Quarter.

As for whether the house will be their home, just how much time Pitt and Jolie and their three children will be spending in it remains unknown.

Their five-year-old son, Maddox, is old enough to be enrolled in school, though it is unclear whether the couple has selected a school for him in New Orleans. The other two children are daughters Zahara, 2, and 7-month-old Shiloh.

Calls to Pitt’s publicist were not immediately returned Wednesday.

Regardless of how much time they spend in New Orleans, residents here say they are a welcome addition to the city.

“They’re always trying to make a difference. They’re always trying to help out,” said Christina Cody, a waitress at a nearby restaurant whose co-workers have seen Pitt, though Cody has not.

“I want them to come in and eat,” she said.

The celebrity couple has helped raise awareness of the city’s devastation following Hurricane Katrina. Pitt, an architecture enthusiast, teamed up last year with Global Green USA to sponsor an eco-friendly design competition to rebuild parts of the city that were the hardest hit by the August 2005 storm.

Construction on the project will begin in the Holy Cross neighborhood in the city’s devastated Lower Ninth Ward in February or March, said Trevor Neilson, philanthropic and political adviser for the couple.

The project will include 12 apartment units, six single-family houses, a community center and day-care facility to be built on 1.5 acres along the Mississippi River, Neilson said.

Pitt’s film has a budget of $150 million, making it one of the most expensive productions in the state since Louisiana began offering tax incentives for the film industry in 2002.

The film also stars Cate Blanchett.

Medi – (((Hugs))) and I hope as every day goes by…you heal and feel better.

i think Jessica Beil is very good 4 the role not Rachel W.

Original Julia and curley:

ITA with you both. Brad and Angelina both just seem so happy to be happy and in love with each other. They are like “I can’t believe how much I love this person”.

In the Vogue article Angelina said that she did not like to be hugged except by her kids(she just left out the info that she also loves her Brad’s hugs). But the last part of that article belied that statement re only the kids as it described how she and Brad greeted each other when he flew in on the second day of the photo shoot. He ran down the plane’s steps and hugged her almost lifting her up in the air, and then grabbed her ass (he does that in pixs at TGS and the GG, hehe). The observers noted that as Angelina and Brad walked toward the group, she had not one but both arms wrapped around Brad as she snuggled against him. Love is grand.

Haters can hate all they want. Tabs can lie and twist facts all they want. People can still obsess over a 2 year hollywood divorce all they want. However, BP and AJ are living a pretty damn* good life and helping people along the way. Not bad, Not bad at all.

Real-Life Love Stories
MSN Entertainment

“You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh,” sang Dooley Wilson in a pivotal scene from “Casablanca,” “the fundamental things apply, as time goes by.” That evocation of lost love jerked our tears even as it haunted iconic tough guy Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) and set up the grand sacrifice that clinches that 1942 classic’s stature as the greatest movie romance of all time. Now, as then, we can’t help comparing the off-screen romantic trials of the stars with their gauzy fictional affairs. Here’s a collection of famous real-life couples who sizzled when the cameras weren’t rolling.

ANGELINA JOLIE & BRAD PITT: He was a certified heartthrob, one half of Hollywood’s golden couple du jour with then-wife Jennifer Aniston. She was as notorious as she was beautiful, twice married and divorced to other actors, and known for matter-of-fact sound bites skeptical of traditional relationships. But when they became a couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie surprised pundits and fans alike by forging a rapidly expanding multi-cultural family, revealing new depths of social activism entwined with a touching commitment to their kids, including adopted son Maddox and daughter Zahara Pitt-Jolie, and their first child together, Shiloh Nouvel, born in 2006.

(RD/Leon/Retna Ltd.)

Does anyone have a link to a videaclip of yesterday ET coverage concerning Brad/Angelina. ET was prempted where I live to due to bad weather coverage.

I wouldn’t be too giddy that Rosie said positive things about Angelina. Her opinions don’t count for much these days and The View is just a televised version of a tabloid magazine. They repeat tabloid, as well as real news.

You all can do what you want but any organized actions on boards or blogs just because you don’t like what is being said is not a great idea. Unless someone here has some inside information and posts it to scare the blogger or tabloid, what’s the point? The truth willl always show itself like it did today regarding New Orleans. If Brad & Angelina can ignore tabs, the least we can do is to do the same.

(OFF TOPIC – Lindsay checks into Rehab)

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,244344,00.html

(I wonder if this girl will ever get her life together. She has more medical problems than my 80 year old grandmother.)

(Pop tart Lindsay Lohan has checked herself into rehab, celebrity Web site TMZ.com reports.

“I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health,” Lohan said in a statement released by her rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik. “I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time.”

The notorious hard-partying actress admitted to attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings as of late. Us Weekly reported that Lohan entered the posh Wonderland Center in Los Angeles at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, arriving in a sports utility vehicle and clutching a Jamba Juice.

Lohan reportedly had surgery to remove her appendix two weeks ago. She was treated at hospitals twice in January 2006 — in London for a cut on her leg and in the Miami area for an asthma attack. In 2005, she was hospitalized for exhaustion and lost a noticeable amount of weight.

KK1- ITA with you, but I need to add something to that Vogue part of the comment, when I read that part of the article it said to me that she doesn’t like to hugs when the other person has personal problem, crying, sobbing, depressing…something like that…she doesn’t know how to handle that, so she’s not a hugging type when come to that , it doesn’t stated that she doesn’t like to hugs her family, friends or people that she cares for.

Nabe Babes
What favorite celebrity couple and their too-famous fledglings are rumored to have purchased a home in New Orleans? None other than Brangelina & Co., ‘course! The fam that never seems to stay put in any one country may be settling down once and for all, I’m sure you’re veddy happy to hear.

I told you here first (last week!) in this very missive that the move looked to be happening, and now, Us Weekly, quelle surprise, has confiscated the gab that Brad and Angelina may have purchased a home and even enrolled Maddox in an elementary school in the area.

Beatcha, babycakes!

Okay, so why the city made famous by Bourbon Street, crooked politics and megadisaster?
Brad, ‘course, is currently stationed there while he films The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This is a flick about aging backwards, a movie perhaps inspired by Pitt’s honey, Angelina Jolie, who—curvaceous earth mother vixen now—looks like the friggin’ daughter of that blood-vial-wearing wife to Billy Bob Thornton, remember her ****** ass?
Back to moving biz: The couple has taken quite a liking to N’Awlins, where it is fairly common knowledge Angelina simply adores the fact that she can just be a “normal” mom, away from the glitz and glare of Hollywood. Mind you, I think this is complete and utter hogwash, and our global Princess Di-reincarnated knows damn well she’ll get mucho attention for simply buying a friggin’ cup o’ gumbo, so let’s get real on that one.

^^^^

I couldn’t agree more. And were Rosie is concerned? Please, as soon as Brad or Angie said or did something that RoD felt stepped on her lesibian sensibilities, she’d turn on them faster than Donald Trump turned on her. I hear today she chose to rake one Paula Abdul through the mud. Instead of making sport of someone you believe has an addiction, why couldn’t Rosie seek the woman out off the clock and reach out to her?! Hell no I don’t care if Rosie speaks well of AJ or BP. So what right? I’d take Elizabeth’s support first “and that’s saying something!”

jpf

Angie will cherry-pick her roles from now on. She doesn’t need to work, and each time she does a film it will be some role that really interests her. This means that when her infrequent films do come out, they will make a huge impact.

Her following this trent of choosing monumental roles is already proven with “Mighty Heart” and “Atlas shrugged”. Catherine the Great will be another epic production that will eclipse any Queen’s role, simply because the role fits Angie better that anyone else. Just looking at how she carried herself at the GG makes this obvious-the word “Regal” is on most commendators lips and writings.

Not ‘having” to take a role just to make some money, allows “selectiveness”. Both Angie and Brad can easily afford to be very selective, plus they’re extremely intelligent and media-savvy, and no one can talk them into roles, or force them to play something duie to contracts and such. They can both totally write their own ticket all the way.

No one in the film industry has any kind of sway with them, therefore they can do what they want, and what is best for them. Brad having his own productions nominated and winning awards and critical acclaim is a humongous “plus”, creating the widest artistic opportunities for both of them, rather than just starring in movies.

If one sits down and thinks well their position in the film industry and the fact that they have only powerful friends and no enemies in the industry, then they will come close to getting an idea about just how enormous the playing field is for Angie and Brad.

As for the tabloids, they don’t know the art of “good measure”: They beat every story horse they ride to death with constantly repeating themselves, and exhausting people’s interest, instead of keeping it up with good timing.
I have quit reading any of them, especially after I realized they’re doing something similar to “fanfiction”, i.e creating “stories out of thin air about all possible and impossible scenarios, to sell the weekly issue.

There has been a noticeable change in the mainstream media towards more tabloidism, which can mean only one thing:

They are aiming at a low-uneducated, naive, gullible, uncritical audience, because that audience can be more easily led and manipulated, thus fed any kind of news and suggestions they need to put out at the time-from investments to voting, to religion, to consumption.

So tabloidism is here to stay, and contacting them to complain only means our eyeballs are watching them, which is what they want-they could not care less whether we like what they write.
Why? Because they know that if we don’t really care about what they write, we’ll ignore it.

Didn’t Ted C. steal the NOLA info from Lainey yet here he is taking credit for this “scoop.” Ted C. reads blogs just like the rest of us. What a hack!

And yes it wasn’t hard to figure out that while Brad was filming Benjamin Button, his family would follow him to NOLA.

Ted C sure knows how to play up to his audience of jealous jen hens who hate the fact that AJ is beautiful and can wear a size 6. Pretty hard to squeeze all that massive jealously and envy into a St* Johns original. I guess that’s why AJ got all the best dress and most beautiful acknowledgments from all the major outlets.

what the hell is ted c saying. will someone just pull the plug on his old ass already?

Ted C should concentrate on the circus that is The TomKatBeckhams. What they showed on ET when Posh & Becks went out with Tom & Kate made the press reaction to Brad & Angelina seem like tea party. Posh could not get out of her car becasue there were paps blocking the car door. Someone was seen screaming to the paps to MOVE BACK so that the car door could open! UNREAL!

They have that lovely smiling pic of her in the NOLA French Quarter with beads around her hand….Lord only knows what the story is. They’ll probably have her dancing on tabletops or stripping. All I ask is that they have Brad find out, storm into the club, drag her out caveman style and spank her when they get home followed by some hot jungle love. Muahahaha!

Re: 418 ntt Says: January 17th, 2007 at 8:05 pm
Firstandlastpost, if you are lurking,
Hi ntt,
I totally agree with you on your analysis of The Queen. I have not seen the other actresses you cited in their respective movies so I would only be able to comment on Helen Mirren on her role of The Queen. I had low expectations of this movie but was pleasantly surprised at her performance and the direction of the movie. I was mesmerized by the look, gestures and movement, it was so realistic and must be difficult to portray a living well known persona. It would have been interesting if they focused more on Charles with a hint of Camilla in the background and his reaction to Diana’s death. So little is known about Phillip, I think they really couldn’t do much with that character, hence your “caricature” comment.
Re: 425 piper, with a low Says: January 17th, 2007 at 8:19 pm
“Phillip came across as really cold, but it came from a place of protecting his wife, not the Sovereign.” I really agree with this astute observation. I don’t think many viewers perceive that. “Ironically, Elizabeth was the most relatable…” As a result of Mirren’s portrayal I really felt I understood a lot more about QE’s position going along with ntt’s comments on her background. However, I thought they made the Mother Queen villainous actually, she came across as tart, unemotional, snide too…an unappealing person, however looking back on ntt’s comments about QE, it would apply to the Queen Mother as well although the responsibility and burden is all on QE. I would have liked to have seen more on QE’s relationship with her mother. It was portrayed as a co-dependent relationship but I could be misinterpreting that versus a mother giving advice and a child looking for personal guidance from her mother.
Overall given the complexities of all the parties involved, focusing on QE was appropriate and they did a good job of showing another side of her and I agree with ntt re: her expectations and particular disappointment in Diana. Clearly Diana was a poor choice for Charles to marry and for all the wrong reasons but that’s another movie. Thanks ntt for your post, you too Piper….

It is truly a secret garden. BP and AJ have a lovely home, if this is the house. AJ should get lots of tranquility there.
It was always my fantasy to own one of those homes. However, I forgot about the part that I needed to be a millionaire or a part of Superstar couple.

Lainey about CC and Brad @ 01/17/2007 at 10:06 pm

The Pragmatic Courteney Cox
In case you haven’t heard, Courteney Cox has something to sell. It’s a tv show called Dirt, satirising the underbelly of tabloid journalism – she is the star and executive producer.
I saw the pilot, definitely has potential, and super raunch in parts – a nice change from the sugar she’s best known for, certainly has a shot at success…especially since she is workin’ it all angles.

Didn’t know she was such an accomplished player, but then again, given that she’s been able to so deftly hide her ***** for so many years, it probably shouldn’t come as such a surprise.
You see, Courteney is what my people like to call a Two Headed Snake – milking her friendship with Jennifer Aniston to guest star for ratings on one side, making nice with Brad Pitt, one of the most powerful players in the business on the other.
Impressive, don’t you think?
At the Globes the other night, Brad was smoking on a balcony, Courteney and David approached him and they exchanged a hug, as Brad said to her graciously:
“Hello, sweetheart. It is SO great to see you.”
They apparently chatted for a few minutes about their children as Angelina stood a few steps away…
And the motivation?
How about a future collaboration? After all, Pitt and Plan B have had the Midas Touch and please don’t tell me Courteney Cox doesn’t know it.

Courteney Cox, clever and opportunistic, much to the chagrin of rabid Jennifer Aniston fans and members of the MiniVan Majority who are now branding CC a traitor for becoming friends with the man who “supposedly” cheated on her best friend.
And that really is what it comes down to isn’t it? Two options:

If she’s such a good friend, if she really is the strong shoulder for Jen, why initiate contact with the scoundrel? But. Given that she DID initiate contact with the scoundrel…does that mean she’s a sell out or does that mean Brad didn’t cheat?

YOU decide.

January 17th, 2007 at 6:29 pm
I agree with all those who say to ignore the hater’s attacks and pathetic attempts at luring BAMZS fans into a fight.

But I have to mention something. The issue goes way deeper than what’s happening to Brad and Angelina. It’s the blatant hypocrisy of the media, not just the tabliods or the blogs, but also by the mainstream media in regards to how Angelina is painted as a woman to be hated and Aniston as a woman people should adore. It’s a smear job. And it happens all the time to many other people. It’s the idea that the people can be bought off to paint a certain image of a public figure. It’s the idea that the people who tells the “news” can’t be trusted anymore because they will tell the story that is most believable and most beneficial to them, even if it’s not the truth.

It’s disturbing to see what’s going on. It’s the idea that because Huvaniston was being exposed for their lies and because they didn’t like that, they decided to buy some in the entertainment media off. Perez and US magazine were damaging Aniston’s image that she spent years on perfecting and molding into as America’s sweetheart. So Huvane and her decided to pay off or manipulate the press in their favor. Those who don’t want to believe that Huvaniston do have a hand in this somewhere can choose to have their own opinions. But I do believe that someone was payed off in the background to write about Aniston in a positive light.

What’s also disturbing is that the mainstream media cites tabliods as sources for their stories and that so many news organizations get so many facts wrong. The line between serious news and what should be considered light and fluffy infotainment has been blurred.

I can’t write more right now, but I just wanted to briefly mention this. BBL.

——————————–

OMG..stardust I so agree with this! I said last night – it was definitely an organized hit and it’s obvious because it seemed to all culminate GG night (plenty of time for advanced pre-planning of their attack) — I said it was similar to Fox news, in that they all got their ‘talking points’ (the outlets that had it out for her). ..and I think Huvaniston is behind it too. It’s all again designed to demonize AJ, which they think in turn angelizes Maniston — and in the rags, they’re also nicely drumming up interest for Maniston’s next gig (her hack appearance on a tv show playing a…guess what? what a coinkydinky…a tabloid editor — see the connection, if you don’t you’re STEVIE WONDER), this aligns quite nicely with the new ramped up ‘triangle’ coverage that Huvaniston has also orchestrated.

Here’s how it will unfold…save this post: Maniston gets all kinds of ramped up triangle coverage attaching her to B & A. Making her life such hell she will be the first to whine to OPRAH of course..then she’ll discuss it on Jay…well, he’ll talk, and she’ll just nod and answer in monosyllabics….both she and Courtney will do tag team interviews about her guest appearance…it will be a blanketing of coverage…yes, you got it…all of this designed to do what??? Yes – give her an opportunity for the 999,567th time to whine about the tabloids discussing her ‘life.’ No one will see the irony in that she’s gifting them with publicity, even as she’s using them cheesily for career purposes, and of course the elephant in the room, AS USUAL…BRAD & ANGELINA. Because everyone knows they are the SOLE reason for her continued fame.

Yes. It will be nauseating.

But you put it all so succinctly – excellent post, and right on the money.

Yes, I am hoping that The beckhams cause some trouble for themselves here. I hope they take over the tabloids. I wonder what starlets DB might get involved with? J/K.

Guys its so obvious I am surprised we didn’t see it. Isn’t JA returning to TV on Dirt. I will bet this is to turn people against Angie so JA gets all the love for her return to TV. I mean did you not see that they announced her return on the same day as the Glden Globes. It did not make a dent in cyberspace. So they want to build the momentum for her return. That’s what this is about. Note its not about Brad and also note there are clear discrepancies in US Weekly’s version of the meeting with Brad and the Arquettes and Angie being a diva article.

Hey all,

I don’t know if this was posted already because I went straight to leave a reply. It was just confirmed by Brad’s rep on ET that they are NOT moving to New Orleans. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
aren`t you quoting from a tabloid?
********************************
Brad’s rep Cindy G is not a tabloid

Hi all,

Here is my take on the lines blurring between “tabloids” and other news agencies, at the end of the day the bottom line counts re: messages from stardust and Cliniqua.

Conventional media outlets have been losing readers and audiences for some time, while tabloids are going after the price war, selling at $1.99. In my view, given the recent speculation that NYT too may be getting ready for a tabloid version of it to attract 18-34 age group, CNN etc. may be trying to grab the tabloids’ target reader population. I found a piece in Slate on the issue, to quote

“Tabloid Shocker!Enquiring minds want to know why the National Enquirer and its parent company are doing so badly. ….

Respectable large- circulation national magazines like Time, Newsweek, and Fortune are losing readers, advertising, and in some instances, both. So, too, are American Media’s publications. Between 2003 and 2005, as this 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2005, shows (see page 13), circulation of the revamped Star is up. But other publications like Flex, Fit Pregnancy, Shape, and Natural Health have lost circulation even as they maintained or cut the cover price.

When it comes to the tabloids, Fuller & Co. may be victims of her success. Celebrity magazines are multiplying like rabbits and going downscale. InTouch Weekly, the rapidly growing entry launched by Bauer Publishing in the fall of 2002, retails for a mere $1.99, cheaper than Star. The price war has cut into profits. And the Internet, which is displacing newsprint as a source of salacious gossip, is cutting into circulation. The National Enquirer’s circulation fell from 1.4 million in 2003 to about 1 million in March 2005. ”

I do not know the industry or the players in it very well, but my 2 cents to the debate.

About the tabloids: Only ignorant people can believe the stupid things they print. And I´m talking about the tabloids of my country…By extension I can apply the same argument towards the North american´s tabloids. Almost everything they write is a lie.
All tabloids are the same: here, in England or in USA.

The media as annoying as it is…one thing….history will tell all. As it happens with negativity surrounding brad or angelina, eventually the truth surfaces. How lovely.

I love Rachel!

It amazes me how many people swallow this bunk. We all knew it was temporary MONTHS ago. Sheesh. But it will be nice…the NOLA move. Brad’s family can be there inside of an hour! :-) That will be nice, Maybe Grandma and Grandpa can babysit on occasion while Brad and Ange do up the town. Grandma Bertrand can come down and join the 50,000 other Bertrands in NOLA. lol I wonder if Marcheline knows any french?

Celebrity Moms and Dads hit the Golden Globe Swag Suites

At the Liberace Golden Globe Suite, a stylist for the most well-known Hollywood parents, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, picked out Dainese motorcycle jackets for the couple as she had spied a couple in Brad’s closet.

http://www.celebrity-babies.com/2007/01/the_silver_spoo.html#comments

All this ruckus was definitely preplanned by the media and I now realize why.

Celeb couples, especially really controversial ones like Brangelina and Bennifer, have become like franchises, which media outlets, specifically tabloids and entertainment news broadcast, use in order to sell papers and tv shows. Without the controversy that surrounds these couples there is no money to be made.

Hence the branding of the couples with ridiculous names like “Brangelina”. It seeks to undermine the realness of the actual relationship and instead remakes the it to fit whatever storyline the media needs it to fit, in order to continue to make money off of it.

Not every celeb couple can become a franchise. There has to be an aspect to the story that resonates with the public and speaks to its underlying predjudices and deep seated biases .

The tale of two “Bennifers” is an example of this. Ben Affleck with Jennifer Garner is nothing more than a fairy tale romance, but Ben Affleck with Jennifer Lopez was more Westside Story. The lowerclass Puerto Rican dating the White guy from the other side of the tracks. However untrue this is of the two people involved, Jennifer Lopez is a multi-millionaire who made more money than Affleck at the time and they both have similar backgrounds, for the sake of selling papers, playing up the Westside story bit really made the couple hot property. Even Affleck himself commented as much in his Rolling Stone article after the Bennifer break up, stating that he thought the public was so over interested due to the perceived differences of race and class.

“Brangelina” plays on the petty jealouses of women. There are many storylines that involve this romance, but mainly it boils down to what most have picked up on, on this board, the more beautiful, younger woman comes along and takes the man of the less attractive woman.

In order for this story to work the parties involved have to play their part on some level. For one, they should have already broken up by now, but they haven’t. Brad Pitt was just suppose to be there for the hot sex, playing the “man in his midlife crisis”, but instead they have kids together and he calls them his family. Jolie is suppose to be a vixen, who’s evil at her core, but she continually shows how much she’s grown. The GG’s proved that.

Remember when she used to french Billy Bob on the red carpet and talk about wild sex, she doesn’t do that anymore. The Nancy O’Dell tried to goad her into that by reminding her of her past, but she refused. The only kiss they got was a real sweet peck between committed lovers. (Real sweet).

The media is angry because Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have duped them out of money at every turn. This relationship can not, and will not be exploited for the media’s gain. More power to Angelina and Brad Pitt.

Jolie Makes Fashion Record with Indian Jewelry

Always setting trends rather than following one, Angelina Jolie lit up the red carpet at Golden Globe Awards in Bochic jewelry that was worlds away from the collections worn by other leading ladies on this special evening. Looking radiant in a charcoal grey St. John gown, she wore a vintage-style uncut diamond necklace, earrings and bangles set in 22kt yellow gold by Bochic from the D’Orazio & Associates showroom.

Inspired by Indian jewelry from centuries past, the pieces Jolie selected were crafted by Bochic artisans using skills passed down over generations. Each piece of hand made jewelry created by Bochic is said to have taken many hundreds of hours.

The operative words here are “the ex”. Ex=former, was, before, not at present. If those memories make you happy, then good for you. Maybe they were oh soo in love, or maybe they just appeared to be that way to others.

The present is Brad and Angelina, and Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh. The present is a couple and a family that is joined at the hip, that refuse to be separated from one another for more than a few days at a time. Brad has said in a very recent interview that “he likes to keep the brood (”his family”) close”; he also said just this Monday at the GG that “we were parents first and the rest of it grew from that”. Brad essentially has now confirmed exactly what Angelina said in Vogue mag -”that Maddox calling Brad dad was the key element leading to the development of their relationship”. When Mad called Brad his dad, a family began.

happiness, you can try to deny this all you want to but BRAD PITT wanted a family with children. He did not want to continue to be with someone who did not feel as he did. Couples who truly want children adopt if they are unable for whatever reason to have biological children. In a 6+ year relationship, no children appeared.

He wanted to be with and is with someone today who wants what he wants. He has demonstrated that he totally loves his children no matter how they came to be in his family, wants a large number of children, and wanted a mother for his children who feels the same way that he does. Angelina is the woman Brad loves now in the present. He and Angelina love and/or support each other in their interests – travel, motorcycles, flying, their careers, architecture, helping others, and THEIR FAMILY WITH CHILDREN (his deeply desired bonus). He loves his woman who is happy and proud to be a stay at home mom when he is working, and he is happy and proud to be a stay at home dad when his love is working. This is the present, and Brad is a happy man today.

LaMey (Lainey) is freaking full of it. She did her usual poaching of a 5th hand account and then tried to sneak it past like she was on that balcony and lit Brad’s stanky stick with her own bic.

CC’s approach was about fixing what Dave broke on Howard Stern and nothingmore. Dave may have put the D in stupid, but Courtney put the S in smart on this one, and being smart here isn’t about trying to line up Brad for a future powerplay. Being smart here is about everyone elses opinion of both she and her husband in HW, and especially since she and hubby’s shows are both nowhere out of the cancellation clear.

Brad has never ever been known to excercise his power for the purpose of exacting revenge so why would he now start? The guy doesn’t operate like that, and so why would CC have reason to think that would have now changed, and especially since she’s the only member of the GC to give him the benefit of the doubt in VF.

This is in my opinion about CC biting the bullet in an attempt to say to all in general “my husband was a drunk ******* who didn’t know when to shut the hell up and we’re sorry about that.”

When Lainey claims she’s in the know, that generally means she’s in the NOT.

p.s……”MiniVan majority” is seriously corny, lame and over done. Time to flush that dry ****.

I wouldn’t be too giddy that Rosie said positive things about Angelina. Her opinions don’t count for much these days and The View is just a televised version of a tabloid magazine. They repeat tabloid, as well as real news.

You all can do what you want but any organized actions on boards or blogs just because you don’t like what is being said is not a great idea. Unless someone here has some inside information and posts it to scare the blogger or tabloid, what’s the point? The truth willl always show itself like it did today regarding New Orleans. If Brad & Angelina can ignore tabs, the least we can do is to do the same.
——-
Frenchy, while I did love what Rosie said about Brad and Angie, it was more the fact that it was said on a show where she rarely gets praise. Alot of people believe what they hear and read. I am the only person in my family and work that is a Brad and Angie fan. The rest couldn`t care any less about celebrities. My brother, sisters and co-workers find it quite amusing that I would follow a celebrity. They also believe what is on the front covers of tab mags. Why? Because it is the only exposure they have to the lives of celebs. My brother drools at every picture of Angie, but remarked that he did not like the way she sold pictures of her baby for millions of dollars. When I told him (two months ago) that she donated every cent to charity, he was shocked. Now he really loves her. My husband knows how much I love Brad and Angie. While flipping through channels he will hear a nasty comment about Brad and Angie and ask me about it. He almost always seems relieved when I tell him it is not true. No, he will not watch or read any tabloids. There are alot of people who hear the gossip while flipping through channels and believe it. I am very happy when I hear the tabs saying nice things about Brad and Angie. I really love it when it is being said by a show that is viewed by a large audience.
I really liked what Rosie said about Brad and Angie.

Stardust, you’re such a wonderful writer :) Everything you wrote, I absolutely agree with. It’s been over two years (three if you count ’04) and really, Brad and Angie have risen above it all.

kk1 Great Post.

Just want to add the obvious. Sure fanistons can point to the PHOTOS of togetherness of Brad and Jennifer. However, what fanistons can’t deny are the differences in Brad’s actions in relation to Jennifer when compared with his actions with Angelina.

What the fanistons can’t deny is that when Brad talked about 6 children, Jennifer talked about 2 kids. When Brad talked about babies now, Jennifer said, wait till Friends is finished. When Brad filming Troy, they were apart for 6 months and Jennifer had to force herself to visit him in Malta (what an idiot!!). When Brad went to Africa in 2004, Jennifer didn’t join him. Brad was interested in architecture, Jennifer never arranged for him to visit Fallingwater or any other architectural wonder. Jennifer wasn’t interested.

So, yes, Brad probably did love Jennifer very much. But clearly loved changed shape and Jennifer has to take her responsibility for not being able to sustain the marriage. Given what Brad and angelina are prepared to do to sustain their relationship, it is clear that NEITHER Brad nor Jennifer were prepared to do the necessary.

I know some people use words like ‘anorexic’, ‘fat’ etc. because they want to show their hate for someone; so be it. But if your not that person dont use those words to describe someone who doesn’t fit that description. Trust me, I’ve seen anorexic people and Angie aint one of them, although I too believe she needs to put some meat on herself because she is SKINNY. But then, who knows why. I too have allways been skinny and I used to eat like you wouldn’t believe so that even when I was her age I could never get past 150lb at 5’11′ despite my best efforts. ‘Skinny’ describes me; ‘anorexic’ describes me as someone with an eating disorder.

Published in the New Orleans Times Picayune website today:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie buy house in French Quarter
Superstar actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have purchased a 3-story mansion in the Lower French Quarter at a cost of $3.5 million, according to several local real estate agents.

At almost 7,500 square feet, the renovated masonry mansion — in a largely residential and leafy section of the Quarter — has 8 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms. Though the home has a demure street presence, agents say it is richly appointed with elaborate chandeliers, a grand spiral staircase, elevator and gourmet kitchen. The property is also very private, with a large courtyard, off-street parking and a guesthouse.

Pitt is currently in New Orleans filming “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,“ and has been working locally since Hurricane Katrina with Global Green USA, a national organization committed to stemming global climate change and other efforts.

some people just can’t stop posting about the past. no wonder the tabs won’t stop with the triangle crap.

anyway, I thought her jewelry was beautiful.

All the talk about the fake Angelina mood on the red carpet when all heck broke out during the show we are now learning.

The Grey’s Anatomy feud spilling on to the press room with Isaiah Washington using the F word yet again. The writer & creator Shonda Rhimes did nothing to help the situation with her lame response to the contoversy on the show.

Maria Menounos and America Ferrera debacle.

Justin Timberlake making fun of Prince’s height.

A reported shouting match between Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake

Sacha Cohen describing what his co-stars ‘golden globes” felt like on his face.

Even studio honcho Brad Grey (Brad’s ex partner on Plan B) was in bad behavior at the GG’s. He was caught switching placecards at the Babel & Dreamgirls table so that his face could be seen on camera just in case they won. LOL!!!!

As I said, the truth will always reveal itself. There was no truth to any moodines. Brad & Angelina were class personified compared to what’s being revealed to the public regarding the Golden Globe Awards.

Isaiah Washington ass should be fired, what he did was so out of place.

hahaha….i’m actually relieved she is not in this movie. i fell asleep on the sin city, it was so damn boring. I don’t even know why they are making a sequel

Original JPF,

I listened to what David Arquette said and I really don’t think it was bad at all. He was pretty neutral and really, facetiously, pointed out that Pitt and Aniston were having problems way before Jolie came along, and Jolie wasn’t the cause of the break up. He kind of made things better honestly.

I really think that Cox and Arquette have always remained pretty neutral. It was Cox who stated in the Vanity Fair interview she believed Pitt hadn’t cheated. She really had his back.

I don’t see why people are angry with Cox/Arquette. There was never any beef between them and Pitt.

From all that I hear/read not only have they’ve been quite welcomed, but the residence seem to already feel protective of them. Sounds like papz might end up tangling with the locals if they start getting nuts. I have a feeling that NOLA is going to end up being a regular place for the family. It’s close to his parents, and not far from NY or L.A really. I’m really happy for them finding what sounds like a nice home and community.

Here E! is repeating the pre-show GG (again…). I´ll watch the part when Angie and Brad arrive. And that silly interview Ryan did…

AL, I agree about Rosie. She’s only in the headlines when she’s feuding with someone but no one in the media really cares when she does good, like her children’s charities and her work in Baton Rouge and NO? She isn’t even from there, her wife is though, but that doesn’t stop her. Hell would freeze over before someone like Scarborough would show THIS side of her lol
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEMTtKzZ48Y

About her defense of Brad and Angie. She’s been a Angie fan for years now. So I’m never surprised when she praises her.

The house is lovely and so cozy looking. Mongo Bongo? Oh those two *are* bad! Luuuv it! haha!!

It’s delicious how Brad seems to have relaxed his ultra-modern sleek, sparse decor sensibilities and traded it out for more homey traditonal interiors more befitting the needs of a real family. Angie likes antiques, although she admits not being very good at putting things together, she leaves that to Brad, and what better way to indulge her love of antiques than to buy her a NO French Quarter house? hee hee! I never would have pictured him buying such a home a few years ago. Palladium windows and crystal fixtures? No way would I have believed that. He was all about Le Corbousier and Eames. Strictly clean lines and surfaces, no fussiness. Funny what deep love and kids does to a man…..now he cares more about his family being comfy and safe. To heck with living in “a piece of art you can walk through”…..the kids need a place for all their paraphanalia. The best part? His ex could have had that damn “comfortable couch” she b i t c h e d about not having if she had just done the right thing…..

Oh well, you know what they say… the early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse definitely gets the cheese.

And Angie is savoring every bite. Ummmmm cheeeeese……
And all a certain somebody else has is whine. No cheese for her.

Yeah, I said she was the only one who didn’t attack him in the VF interview, and also, she’s the only one who actually came to his defense. I don’t do guilt by association with anyone, and basically that’s what it’s been. Dave spoke from his sense of it all based on mostly JA’s side of things. I have never gotten that he and Brad were friends who hung out without the wifes, and it’s pretty easy to discern the merit of that being they’ve only had contact once prior to the GG’s according to DA.

And E! has been dissing Angie all week about her not loving Shiloh and she’s a “blob” or things like that. If someone, especially low life like Ryan, said bad things about your kids, surely you are in no mood to be nice to him. Was it Debbie or Guillana or whoever that was…who commented about Angie not being happy or upset because she is not in a 3rd world country adopting babies? wtf is that about, stupid bi#$&

It’s nice to hear you all call CNN a liar, bet you don’t believe them when they say there are troops dying in Iraq either,huh?

*****************************************************

Oh please. Do shut up. Nobody here believes what a tab writes, good or bad about anybody. Yeah, we laugh at it when it’s bad about X, but who cares. Nobody here believes it, and if you were a regular you would know that.

As for CNN, well, they did report incorrect info regarding B&A and New Orleans. Brad’s publicist confirmed the truth, the move to NO is only temporary. That’s what they get for using a tab as a source. They were WRONG in this case. I can’t believe they are bothering to say anything about celebs anyway…..I thought they were “serious” news, huh? And didn’t X freak out over the “incorrect” story about her and VV that appeared on CNN and she went running to Oprah to refute that travesty of justice as if it was of national importance? Yeah right. Or maybe you forgot about that. Brad and Angie won’t be doing anything pathetic like that, thank goodness.

And if you think all the garbage we are being fed about Iraq by the media is the full truth, then you are dumb as a box of rocks.

First of all, I dont´live in the States, so I never watched NBC OR FOX….
And I was talking about tabloids (cheap magazines). One thing is a channel (TV), and another is a magazine.
I like to watch CNN. I never said anything bad about CNN.

And the most important thing. I´m a journalist. I have a degree in Communications. I worked all my life in the media (mostly in newspapers and radio). Now I´m working in the Press Secretary of Government (of my province).

So, media is something that I can talk about.

The house is lovely and so cozy looking. Mongo Bongo? Oh those two *are* bad! Luuuv it! haha!!

It’s delicious how Brad seems to have relaxed his ultra-modern sleek, sparse decor sensibilities and traded it out for more homey traditonal interiors more befitting the needs of a real family. Angie likes antiques, although she admits not being very good at putting things together, she leaves that to Brad, and what better way to indulge her love of antiques than to buy her a NO French Quarter house? hee hee! I never would have pictured him buying such a home a few years ago. Palladium windows and crystal fixtures? No way would I have believed that. He was all about Le Corbousier and Eames. Strictly clean lines and surfaces, no fussiness. Funny what deep love and kids does to a man…..now he cares more about his family being comfy and safe. To heck with living in “a piece of art you can walk through”…..the kids need a place for all their paraphanalia. The best part? His ex could have had that damn “comfortable couch” she b i t c h e d about not having if she had just done the right thing…..

Oh well, you know what they say… the early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse definitely gets the cheese.

And Angie is savoring every bite. Ummmmm cheeeeese……
And all a certain somebody else has is whine. No cheese for her.

^^^^

I’ve been wondering were you were. When I saw that pic of Brad and Angie cheek to cheek, I thought of you. I said to myself “dragonfly is going to find this seriously swoonalicious.”

I simply love the idea of them living there. I just think it’s going to be a beautiful expericence for them. I will not be surprised if they stay “insomuch as Jolie-Pitt stay in a place lol.”

OMG, so many yummy pics of them! I can’t wait until the Oscar pictures now. I never expected all this touchy-feely goodness from them!

About the house…… I wonder if they will keep it? They may plan to return there once a year or so, especially if Brad plans to stay involved in the rebuilding. I also read that Angie is interested in making some friends there, etc… It just seems too wonderful to turn right around and sell after a few months.

If only they were here in Savannah with me! We have lovely old homes draped in ivy and spanish moss with private courtyards, too! haha!! But Savannah has never taken a direct hit from a hurricane, either, so for that I am truly thankful.

You’re welcome ntt! I remember watching The View on the day that this aired and Rosie quickly mentioned that her charity is in the process of developing a subdivision there too.

I sincerely believe your message is missing the point made here in addition to making inconsistent statements. The question you should be asking is this: why, given the cost of airtime, CNN etc news networks are giving airtime, even if it is two minutes, to stories picked from tabloids (another segment in the market). The cost of airtime during prime hours is quite high, as far as I know. Here is an extreme but eye-popping example “The average cost of a single 30-second TV spot during [Superbowl] has reached $2.5 million (as of February 2006)” (wiki)..

Furthermore, another fallacy in your statement is arriving to generalizations from singleton incidents (induction, very common): People who do not believe tabloids originated stories must be dismissing other “serious” journalism as well, see your statement: “It’s nice to hear you all call CNN a liar, bet you don’t believe them when they say there are troops dying in Iraq either,huh?” As for the news network you cite, please follow other networks on the “REAL news, like the important **** that is happening in the world” as you put it…I would suggest ,for instance, BBC World.

BTW, I do not own a TV.

Yeah, sorry about that Andromeda. I didn’t mean to make the whole post directed at you. I also work in journalism albeit here in the States, although I am not originally from here. But the point I was trying to get across is that from what I have read so far it seems that alot of people here tend to quote from the tabloids when it suits them. And I’ve read post after post where people are crying conspiracy in the legitimate news, like CNN or FOX would for any reason be out to detroy Angelina Jolie. Our team works hard to bring news from around the world, and yes, dragonfly, much of what we report about Iraq is very truthful. And to be called a liar is insulting and despairing because if you do this then people like dragonfly will believe that what we report is lies or not the “full truth”. And I can tell you that I have seen soldiers killed with my own eyes and I have seen what goes on in Iraq and what you see on most legit news networks is indeed real. But anyway, I digress, my original point was why believe what tabloids write about certain celebs and not others? Must go, I know this is probably the point where I get insulted or such ……and to Brad and Ms. Angelina…..regardless of what I say here, much love to you both and family…….

This “life” poster is a joke. She is actually the one insulting BAMZS fans posting here, instead of the other way around, by saying that we believe the tabloid ‘news’. CNN crossed the line, at least today, by quoting USWeekly. That’s just terrible journalism IMO. And saying that, their report about the war is the truth, is another big fat joke.

Oh Gawd, you can’t blast my azz out of the South! lol! I like to travel and visit other places, but I do hate me some cold weather. We do only have two seasons, hot and less hot….. that’s about it.

About Brad and the house, I think this throughly-modern guy is learning to appreciate more classic beauty in everything. Don’t get me wrong, I also like modern Bauhaus architecture and feel it has a well-deserved place in the world of design, but the problem with post-1940′s architecture is that it is at its best when it is pristine and sparkling new. It doesn’t age as well as, say, an Italianate, Georgian, or a Beaux Arts building. The Italianate will turn into an elegant, genteel lady as the moss grows on her and the colors fade. The Georgian will still appear refined and well-mannered as her porch sags and the ivy creeps up her walls and across her steps, the ornate carving and moudling of the Beaux Arts will take on a charming patina as the watermarks appear and her paint cracks and peels across her windows …… but the mid-century modern building, well….as it accumulates age spots and mold will become an eyesore…..coming off as nothing more than a dingy, past-her-prime street walker in need of a bath.

You know, after all this time, I think I’m finally learning to scan past the negative posts!

Another perspective of the Brad/Angie interaction with the Arquettes. This is what extra wrotye at their website: At the Beverly Hilton, Brad Pitt apparently ran into old “Friends,” Courteney Cox and David Arquette, with Angelina Jolie standing proudly by his side.

OMG, I just figure out now. B&A created the JP trust funds for their charity work, and the Mongo Bongo trust for their brood’s inheritance, because said brood came as a result of the first mongo bongo dance. ;)

It’s everybody but Us Weekly, that is reporting it as anything but cordial. Us Weekly wants to be legitimate, but, then they go to play to the lowest common denominator.

Just go and read their blog. Which they should be ashamed to let go on there. They are a national publication and the loons over there are scary. I know that Perez Hilton knows on his site that it’s just actually a few of the same posters writing the vile things. But, for Us Weekly to allow that to go on their site is a bit frightening and Janice Min wonders why Us Weekly’s sales are down and she can’t get in the same league with PEOPLE.

Doesn’t take alot to figure out why.

All this ruckus was definitely preplanned by the media and I now realize why.

Celeb couples, especially really controversial ones like Brangelina and Bennifer, have become like franchises, which media outlets, specifically tabloids and entertainment news broadcast, use in order to sell papers and tv shows. Without the controversy that surrounds these couples there is no money to be made.

Hence the branding of the couples with ridiculous names like “Brangelina”. It seeks to undermine the realness of the actual relationship and instead remakes the it to fit whatever storyline the media needs it to fit, in order to continue to make money off of it.

Not every celeb couple can become a franchise. There has to be an aspect to the story that resonates with the public and speaks to its underlying predjudices and deep seated biases .

The tale of two “Bennifers” is an example of this. Ben Affleck with Jennifer Garner is nothing more than a fairy tale romance, but Ben Affleck with Jennifer Lopez was more Westside Story. The lowerclass Puerto Rican dating the White guy from the other side of the tracks. However untrue this is of the two people involved, Jennifer Lopez is a multi-millionaire who made more money than Affleck at the time and they both have similar backgrounds, for the sake of selling papers, playing up the Westside story bit really made the couple hot property. Even Affleck himself commented as much in his Rolling Stone article after the Bennifer break up, stating that he thought the public was so over interested due to the perceived differences of race and class.

“Brangelina” plays on the petty jealouses of women. There are many storylines that involve this romance, but mainly it boils down to what most have picked up on, on this board, the more beautiful, younger woman comes along and takes the man of the less attractive woman.

In order for this story to work the parties involved have to play their part on some level. For one, they should have already broken up by now, but they haven’t. Brad Pitt was just suppose to be there for the hot sex, playing the “man in his midlife crisis”, but instead they have kids together and he calls them his family. Jolie is suppose to be a vixen, who’s evil at her core, but she continually shows how much she’s grown. The GG’s proved that.

Remember when she used to french Billy Bob on the red carpet and talk about wild sex, she doesn’t do that anymore. The Nancy O’Dell tried to goad her into that by reminding her of her past, but she refused. The only kiss they got was a real sweet peck between committed lovers. (Real sweet).

The media is angry because Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have duped them out of money at every turn. This relationship can not, and will not be exploited for the media’s gain. More power to Angelina and Brad Pitt.

Yes, born in Savannah. Raised in a small town in South Ga. If you have only been to Atlanta, you have not been to Georgia, my friend!

Ah yes, Midnight. I have some connections there, I know many of the people depicted in the book. I am acquainted with Minerva and have been to her house. Trippy! The book is much better than the movie, but neither one tells the whole truth. There’s much more to it, actually. Jon Berendt wouldn’t admit to being the gay man that he is, so I think a little less of him for not embracing who he is and feeling the need to mask it. The way they had he and Mandy be romantically involved in the movie was a riot! NOT! Savannah loves its gays. Berendt had the problem with his sexuality, not Savannah. One of my good friends is a female impersonator at Club One. Me and my husband love to go see the show sometimes. Savannah is like NO’s rowdy little sister. Charleston, SC is the older, stick-up-the-butt former beauty queen big sister who looks down on the other two. Charleston is beautiful, but that is one prudish town.

Right now the big thing is Paula Deen, bless her big fat heart…..she’s gonna stroke out from all that butter.

Look at all the attention and news stories, both nationally and internationally, already focused on New Orleans that have been generated just by the action of Brad and Angelina moving there for however long. The whole gulf region will benefit from the attention. This is how their strategy of dragging the paps chasing them to areas with great need works. Bravo!

Is late…Good night BAMZSters, and sweet dreams!!!

Meditarranean, all the advice dragonfly has given you is absolutely correct. I had a miscarriage 2 years ago when I was less then 6 weeks pregnant. I went through several months where I couldn’t talk or think about it without crying or feeling teary eyed. People who have never had a miscarriage simply don’t understand what the fuss is about. Before I had a miscarriage, I was one of those who didn’t. Only after I miscarried did I understand that you start to feel the bonds of love from the moment you realise you are pregnant. Physically too, the hormonal changes that took place now that you are pregnant, is now reversing it self now that you are not. It is sure to take a toll.

Take the time to mourn. It is absolutely OK.

They’re having an epiphany. After Stern, David was probably all ‘OMG Honey – this is more publicity than I’ve gotten in life! More publicity than when I married you. Now I see why ‘Huvaniston’ do what they do! My name has been in the rags, blogs and papers for more than a week – and all I did was babble to Stern for 5 seconds! Court, Brangelina is MAAAGIC! You’ve got to try some! Why has Maniston been keeping this from us. Why were we so clueless! We can work this honey…come on, score us an invite to the Globes babe!’ …..flash forward 2 days later, Arquette and Cox are late add-ins…milling around the premises LOOKING for ‘Brangelina’ – Court!!!

Good point kk1. We actually need to thank USWeekly for their half true ‘news’ and cnn for just reporting it without checking it for accuracy.

I’ve been reading all the posts and I think that we shouldn’t pay attention to all the negative publicity on Brad and Angelina. I’ve thought abt writing comments on those magazines that make up stories to sell………Whether she does SC2 or not, it wouldn’t matter. She will have other movies. I don’t believe the article where she didn’t get along with Annie L. for her Vogue photo shoot. Why are they just posting it now? These tabloids have nothing better to say about her. I do hope that the Beckhams will take over so Brad and Angelina can just live their life.

Whoops. LOLOL!

Amaya: you are on a roll. Condi lying in wait for her b**ch-boy. Loves it. Funny and how lucky is Chance????? I am intrigued by the future uses of black lace boy shorts. hmmmmmm.

On Rosie, good for her, but they spoke out of turn last Friday. I wrote a stong email to Babs, saying that taking the whisper down the lane approach was beneath her. (this was about the putting “the Blob” on an ice floe and letting her fend for herself).

SOOOOOOO! I am wondering whether they have gotten any snapback from the suits at ABC. Or maybe Babs got a lot of negative feedback on their snide (and massively uninformed) ridiculousness last week. One can hope.

I can only say that while Ryan has always been my least fave part of AI since the beginning, now I can’t bear to hear the sound of his voice — which definitely makes Tues/Wed a little tough! And I don’t know why I ever watched E! to begin with (considering no likey the RyRy and Debbie Matenopoulis — she is simply a waste of ectoplasm) ,but no more for me. Remember when EVERY starlet who came on SNL was basically required to play Debbie in a humiliating View skit (Sarah Michele Geller, Cameron Diaz, etc. etc.!)

I’m actually getting sick of always feeling the instinct to jump to their defense. So I want to try to cut back on my visits to the other sites (can’t give up the JJ!)

i love your post about the mouse, cheese, whine etc.

Since they will be there for a while, I wonder if Brad & Angelina will do holiday weekends to the neighboring Southern cities like Savannah, Natchez & Memphis?

Slightly OT:

I am also hoping that the Beckhams would dominate the tabs/paps’ attention and take the heat off of Brad and Angelina — but I don’t think it would be for long. I don’t think David is that interesting (have you heard him speak! boy, talk about having your illusions shattered — that man should just be seen in his skivvies and every female would drool, but don’t let him OPEN his mouth). And Posh is only interesting because everyone would make fun of her “concrete t*ts (to quote Lainey) and her nonsmiling demeanor — but how long do you think that would last? There is not enough drama to keep American tabs interested.

Isn’t it funny though that TomKat needs a whole gaggle of A-Listers with them (Jim Carey, JLo, Will & Jada, and now the Beckhams) to attract the papz? And why oh why is JLo now best buds with them, when before they were nowhere near each other’s vicinity?

Good Morning, I just talked to my doctor, he said that it’s normal and it can go on like this couple more days.

Thank you very much for your concerns. I read somewhere that time is a good doctor but very bad plastic surgent!

I think that I am scared of not becoming a mother again as much as I am sad because of miscarriage. I’ll be 41 in May, with God’s will. I am afraid that it’s too late for me already.

New day has started, I hope that everything gets better today, at least a bit.

Mediterranean–Good luck to you and don’t despair. I had my son when I was 39, a miscarriage when I was 44, and my daughter–a wonderful surprise pregnancy– a week after I turned 47. Both my kids are healthy and happy. If you are 40 now you are still very capable of having a healthy baby. Best wishes.

Mediterranean i wish you all the best and also your family happiness. Its well with you.

Watching GG on E! really confirms that the channel caters to the MVM which it’s target market I suppose. I found Seacrest’s interview with AJ and BP and the way the Debbie woman was carrying on about how uptight AJ looked to be totally unprofessional and tacky. And yet at every chance Seacrest would mention AJ and BP – like for instance at his interview with Kate Winslet and the cute little girl from Little Miss Sunshine!!! They make snide remarks about the couple and yet at the same time want to make full use of the couple’s celebrity power. E! is as thrashy as NE and the other miserable tabloids.

E! and Seacrest has a list of personal favourites and Eva Longoria is on the top of that list and that makes E! channel boring to watch cos we are constantly subjected to all the inane gushing and fawning over certain celebrities. But sad to say for me being in the far east there are no other entertainment programs to choose from so I have to put up with E! to catch whatever little viewing I can of AJ and BP. So sad.

On Brad and Angelina buying a house in NO:
“Real estate records for the house, which is near the French Market, show it was purchased for $3.5 million in cash on Jan. 2. Neither Pitt nor Jolie are named in the transaction. Mondo Bongo Trust is listed as the buyer.”

— Isn’t MONDO BONGO the title of the music played in Mr. & Mrs. Smith?? Mondo Bongo Trust literally means BP&AJ. Who could forget that steamy dance number in MAMS.

where did you see that it was named under Mondo Vongo Trust? :D

made the mistake of reading the comments at US magazine online….

now paying hard for it!

:-) Med is right, the smile at Brad’s face with Angelina on hand did seem to make the X fans more rabid by the minute…hopefully their clawing and dragonfire breathing is on their death throes….

now let me breath more normally before going to bed.

good night/good morning BAMZS folks!

:-)

p.s.

I just realized that maybe they hate Angelina so much (and Brad) because the FANS here at Jared talk and think like genuine friends even without actually meeting one another.

And the X fans who like to cast boulders? Friendless in the real sense of the word. Their only friend was the talking head on TV….or the X they never met.

See, it’s our fault they hate Angie LOL

more snarkly remarks from E @ 01/18/2007 at 5:23 am

From Fashion Police
Don’t turn around, Angelina Jolie, or you’ll turn to stone. Oops, too late! Angie may be a great beauty, but here she gives new meaning to the term statuesque in a strapless gray gown by St. John couture and a frown. Poor Brad Pitt (dressed in a J. Lindeberg tux), that’s got to make for one heavy armpiece

Jessica Biel shows us how to wear gray the right way. (Are you paying attention, Angelina?) With a body no one can stop buzzing about (among the admirers were Eva Longoria and our own Ryan Seacrest), Jess opens the temple for worship in a sleek sequined gown, wispy bangs, sun-kissed cheeks and major ear bling by Lorraine Schwartz. Amen!

I rather talk about the fact that they named their trust MONDO BONGO than what E or US mag are writing about. This is another sign of their union, their planning for the future and how much THEY must have enjoyed filming that scene.

Here is a video wit that song if you need to remember. It seems Brad and Angelina have not forgot.

Another day, another daily reminder to not track b^ll$h*t onto this thread, assuming that a BAMZS fan is behind the buzzkill campaign.

If you want to be miserable, be miserable on your own. Continue to watch E, Scarborough Country, Fox News, etc. But don’t transcribe what got your goat in order for other BAMZS fans to join you in your puddle of piddle.

Survival Story: ‘God Grew Tired of Us’
Hollywood Heavyweights Help Bring the Lost Boys of Sudan to the Big Screen

Jan. 17, 2006 — At the center of all the glamour and excitement of the premiere of a new Hollywood documentary were three Sudanese refugees who, until recently, had never even heard of Brad Pitt or Nicole Kidman — two actors who would eventually play big roles in their lives.

Six years ago, John Bul Dau, 34, Daniel Abul Pach, 25, and Panther Bior, 27, were living in mud huts in a refugee camp in the African nation of Kenya, and had never used electricity or toilets. They had never even heard of a shower or an apartment.

Today they have new lives here in the United States after an extraordinary journey that was, in part, documented by a film crew. Just last week, ABC News caught up with these young men as they mingled with a host of A-list celebrities on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “God Grew Tired of Us,” the documentary based on their story.

This award-winning new film traces the journey of the “Lost Boys of Sudan” as they traveled from a refugee camp to start a new life in America.

At the premiere, Kidman snapped photos with Dau, Pach and Bior as Angelina Jolie expressed her gratitude to them for bringing their story to the screen. “You guys are my heroes,” she told them. “You’ve survived so much — and you’re just so strong. I’m so glad you’re here. You can teach us so many things about life that many people don’t know in this town.”

‘The Lost Boys’

They became known as the “lost boys” because, as children, they were forced from their homes in the Christian-dominated southern Sudan when Muslim militias from the north invaded their villages and sought to kill every male child in the region.

In 1993, an estimated 25,000 “lost boys” gathered in groups — makeshift families — and headed for the neighboring countries of Ethiopia and Kenya to escape the ravages of genocide. The harrowing journey took several months, and along the way, the boys faced attacks by government troops, starvation, and disease. There were only 12,000 boys left by the end of the journey.

In his new book, released by National Geographic in conjunction with the film, Dau describes climbing trees to catch grasshoppers that they would later cook over an open fire, just to eat the tiniest bit of protein. He also caught and roasted turtles, and ate boiled elephant meat that was so tough he could barely chew the smallest piece. The “lost boys” also ate mud for the bit of moisture it held to quench their incredible thirst along the way to the border.

‘A Place Called New York’

When the “lost boys” arrived in the refugee camps set up by the United Nations, they were safe, but there was little food and the conditions were barely livable. Most of the boys remained there for more than 10 years.

After a decade passed, the United Nations Refugee Agency began a program to relocate some of the “lost boys” to the U.S. Pach, Bior and Dau each applied. After rigorous interviews and medical tests, they were accepted, and they began to learn about their future homes.

Pach and Bior discovered they were being relocated to Pittsburgh, and Dau learned he was headed for a place called New York.

“I am going to a place called New York,” says the 6-foot-8 Dau. As he pointed to New York on a map, Dau paused and says, “New York … it looks very tiny.”

“My leaving for the U.S. is very painful,” he continued, surrounded by some of the other boys. “It is not simple. You can see and judge that you will miss a company like this. It is like my family now. … I love them so much.”

Coming to America

The filmmakers follow Dau and a group of the boys as they board a plane for the first time and embark on their long flight to America. Some giggle with excitement, but others look confused as they struggle with the overhead luggage bins. When they’re served airline meals, one boy unwraps a pad of butter and eats it whole, not realizing what it is, and says, “It tastes like soap.”

Others seem bewildered as the airplane captain’s voice is heard coming from a mysterious series of tiny holes in the panel above their plane seats. “The voice … where does it come from?” one boy asks.

For the boys, who learned to speak English while living in the refugee camps, everything is new. Even the simplest things like riding an escalator posed a new set of challenges — and at least one of them has a bit of trouble as he navigates the first couple of steps.

‘Is This Food?’

As the “lost boys” arrive in their new homes, there is much to learn about life in America, and the modern conveniences some of us take for granted.

“This is a shower,” explains the aid worker who was showing them around their new apartment. “We do not throw things out the window here,” he tells them as they crowd into the kitchen. They learn to turn on the lights. “The first thing you have to learn is switch to turn the light on and off,” he tells them.

The boys also have an adventure at a grocery store where they seem like visitors from another planet. One thing is clear: They have never seen so much food, and in so many colors.

“Is this food?” one boy asks as he points to a doughnut with colored sprinkles on top. “Hoagie buns?” another says looking at the endless choices of bread in various forms.

Making the Movie

The movie became the passion project of filmmaker Christopher Quinn shortly after he read about the refugees, and decided to act.

“I was reading about Sudan, and the devastation that had taken place there,” he says. “And I stumbled onto an article about the ‘lost boys,’ and I knew at that point I was going to make a documentary about them … the story is so compelling.”

As Quinn continued to follow the new lives of Dau, Bior, and Pach, his film became increasingly expensive. Months turned to years, and when it came time to edit the film, Quinn began to run out of funds. He turned to his childhood friend, actor Dermot Mulroney, who was well-connected in Hollywood.

Mulroney recalls that Quinn came to him and says, “We don’t have another cent to complete this film. This is the end of it, unless we figure something out.”

Help From Hollywood

Mulroney was eager to help and put Quinn in touch with his friend, Pitt, who took an immediate interest in helping the struggling filmmaker finish editing what, he believed, was an important film.

At the film’s premiere, Pitt told ABC News that “I was fortunate to come in at kind of the last minute, and get to throw up the last shot. These guys have been working on it for several years and friends of mine, Dermot Mulroney and Catherine Keener, are very tight with the director. They showed me some rough footage, and I was really moved by the story and jumped in the game. I personally can’t imagine being thrown out of my home, being separated from my family.”

Kidman is another A-lister who jumped in to help. Keener was shooting “The Interpreter” with Kidman when she learned that Quinn was looking for someone to narrate the film.

“[Keener] called me up and left a message on my cell phone and says, ‘Hey, do me a favor, see this film, and would you help us out?’” says Kidman. “And I watched it and it deeply affected me … and I says ‘Yeah, of course, I would love to be involved, it would be my honor.’”

Quinn traveled to Baltimore, where Kidman was working, and they tracked the film in one afternoon.

Critical Acclaim

“God Grew Tired of Us” went on to debut at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award.

While Christopher Quinn was suddenly receiving critical acclaim for his film, Dau, who also attended Sundance, was experiencing his own taste of life in the spotlight.

Dau met a “nice man” who shook his hand and spoke to him after the screening. “He says his name was Brad Pitt,” recalls Dau. “I had not heard of him, so I asked him what he did. He says he worked as the executive producer of Christopher’s documentary. Sometime later, someone told me Brad also acted in movies.”

What seems to move people about this film is not only the story of the “lost boys” but also what the boys’ experiences reveal about America. Many of them were surprised to learn that you can’t just go to a neighbor’s house at any time to say hello.

Pach pointed out that some Americans take a lot for granted. “They don’t see that they have everything,” he says. “What do you want? What is not available in America? You need a car, you have it. You need an airplane, you have it.”

Where Are They Now?

Today, Bior and Pach continue to live and work in Pittsburgh, and have earned college degrees. Dau is working on his master’s degree and lives in Syracuse with his wife and newborn baby. He and his wife were sworn in as U.S. citizens last month, and Dau also works tirelessly, traveling around the country to promote awareness of the plight of the Sudanese people. He is also raising money to build a medical clinic in Duk County, where he was born.

I guess that the fans of Jen are imagining this:

Because they believe that Jen is the best dressed, the best hair, the best BBF, the best feet, the best shoe, the best handbag, the best ….. and the most….., Brad will wake up one day, holding his coffee and all these stupid gossip magazines in his hand and tell Angie and their three kids “Jen is chosen the best…. and the most … by the gossip magazines, that’s why I have to leave all of you although I love you, go back to Jen”.

The fans of Jen really want this! The worst part is they really believe that this will happen one day.

Is it Jen who is stupid, then her fans happen to be stupid or is it her stupid fans who made her so stupid? It’s like chicken and egg stuff!

After all the nonsense, disgusting things they have saying about Angie, the serious people do respect Angelina Jolie and Brad is still loving her and with her and their kids. To see this happening every single day of their lives must be painful. Good! Because I do hate people who curse the innocent babies.

iW BOT | “God Grew Tired of Us” at Top

January 17, 2007

Led by “God Grew Tired of Us,” the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award-winning documentary at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, the top independent/specialty films on this week’s indieWIRE Box Office Tracking Report (iWBOT) did strong business during the four-day Martin Luther King Day weekend.

The iWBOT is based on per-theater averages reported by Rentrak Theatrical.

Richard Abramowitz, distribution and marketing head for Newmarket Films, said the company was planning to release “God Grew Tired of Us” last November when he joined it in summer. “I felt the film would be ill-served given the number of high-profile films released at that time,” he said. “I wanted to wait several more months.”

Opening at Manhattan’s Landmark Sunshine Cinema and West Los Angeles Laemmle Sunset Five, the documentary directed by Christopher Dillon Quinn and Tommy Walker about Sudan’s “lost boys” grossed $27,076 over four days. It averaged $13,538. “Too bad there wasn’t a Noon Theater in Kansas City,” Abramowitz joked, referring to the sunrise-sunset nature of the bookings.

Its gross was helped by the press done by three “lost boys” featured in the film, especially John Dau, Abramowitz said. And it was especially aided by the Hollywood celebrities who supported it – among the producers are Catherine Keener, Dermot Mulroney and Brad Pitt. All three, plus Nicole Kidman, Edward Norton and Angelina Jolie, attended its LA premiere in order to show support and garner media attention. “That was a very philanthropic use of celebrity,” Abramowitz said. “It helped it get more attention than it would otherwise.”

This weekend, the film opens an additional L.A. run in Encino plus goes into single theaters in Boston, Washington, Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco.

—————————-
Thank you luv for the video!! OMG what a scene.. I have seen it hundredths of times but I can’t get enough. And using this specific name for the perchance of their house in NOLA is hilarious and romantic in the same way. I think that the Bogotá dance scene is something that they are going to remember for a long time. I believe that it was the first time when they started to fall in love with each other and feeling this undeniable attraction for one another.

Popsugar had a survey going about who their readers would like to see more of or less of. This is my answer:

I don’t know about other people on this site but I would just like more nice stuff about people, be it Ben and Jen, Brad and Angelina or who ever. Less SNARKY comments and hate.

When I first started visiting a celebrity website it was for a bit of fun and relaxation. But the hate on some of these threads takes my breath away. Why anyone would find it entertaining to hate on Lindsay or Brad and Angelina or Britney or anyone else makes me feel ill. so, most probably, I doubt I’ll be visiting much unless things change. There is going to be a back lash of celebrity bashing and celebrity hating in these websites and tablies. There is a reason why Hello, OK and People continue to do well. Believe it or not, most people don’t really take what they read seriously. They may believe it momentarily, or, as they become more aware, not at all. I believe celebrity wathcers want to be entertained and I do believe most people don’t find the snarking and the hate entertaining. Not in the long run or even in the medium term.

___________

I’ve basically had enough of the negativity in these celebrity websites and the tablies. Lately, coming to read about celebrities have become no longer entertaining. I really don’t enjoy the deliberate stirring of hate by the celebrity bloggers or the tablies. I have come to think that some of these people like Perez, the dlisted chap, and the entertainment shows, the tablies reporters are SCUM. I won’t enrich the bloggers anymore by clicking on their sites just as I wont enrich US weakly and tablies.

May be what I do won’t make much of a difference to them, but I’m sure it would make a difference to me.

Hot-selling Globe winners

Some critics like to say that the Golden Globes don’t mean anything. But they obviously can made a difference in DVD sales. According to Amazon.com, some globe nominees and winners are seeing big jumps this morning. As of 9:45 a.m. EDT:

After receiving seven Golden Globe nominations and winning “Best Motion Picture – Drama,” Babel rose from No. 448 to No. 169 on Amazon.com’s Movers & Shakers list for DVDs.

Here is something about the Maddox Jolie-Pitt foundation. I’ve never been to Cambodia though a visit to Angkor Wat is forever on my cards. I do know it is very poor and has some dreadful statistics to show for it. What Angelina and Brad are funding is going to make a huge difference to people’s lives there. It is really wonderful. This is why I am a fan. Not for their looks (though they are beautiful) and not because they do or don’t smile for the fans when they go to an award.

Park Signs Agreement With Samlaut Protected Area

[Printer-friendly text version]

On December 19th, saffron-colored banners swirled over the open field at the Samlaut Protected Area in Cambodia and young children, orphans from a nearby city, dressed in traditional purple and yellow silk, danced before several hundred people gathered for the signing of a sister park accord between this park and Sequoia-Kings Canyon.

Regional Director Jonathan Jarvis signed the five-year accord between the two sites, which will bring the two park organizations together to learn from each other and address common issues such as illegal uses within park boundaries.

Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Sar Kheng, and two other cabinet ministers, including the Minister of Environment Mok Mareth and Minister of Tourism Lay Prohan, participated in the morning ceremony, which was hosted by Stephen Bognar, the executive director for the Maddox Jolie-Pitt project. The MJP project is spearheading the integration of this park within the UN Millenium Village of Samlaut.

The following article from the Cambodia Daily, entitled “Samlot Forest Conservation Effort Eyes Tourists,” provides additional details on the event. For more on the MJP project, click on “More Information” below.

************************

Samlot Village, Samlot district, Battambang province – This remote outpost has not attracted many visitors, and when it has, they have tended to be unwelcome.

The forest, which continues along the Cardamom mountain range through Pailin municipality to the Thai border, was a final refuge for Khmer Rouge soldiers in the 1990s. and is still strewn with landmines.

Rampant illegal gem mining inside the forest during the same decade turned the Sangke River red with dust and pollution.

The river has been rehabilitated in recent years, but park rangers who patrol the 60,000 hectares of forest in the Samlot protected area, which spans Battambang and Pailin, say they still contend with poachers, loggers and landgrabbers.

Poverty among villagers in the area complicates the picture, said Fred Beattie, senior conservation adviser for Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Maddox Jolie Pitt project, which employs 46 park rangers and 30 community development workers in the area.

Most small-scale poaching and logging, Beattie said, is carried out by poor villagers who have no other means to support themselves.

On Tuesday, Cambodia officials, US Ambassador Joseph Mussomeli and US park officials signed an agreement in Samlot to protect the 60,000 hectare forest that they hope will bring a new breed of visitor to the district – tourists.

Interior Minister Sar Kheng, Minister of Environment Mok Mareth, Tourism Minister Lay Prohas and Jonathan Jarvis, regional director of the US National Park Service, also named Samlot and Sequoia Kings Canyon parks in California as “sister parks.”

Rangers and officials in Samlot, Sequoia and Kings Canyon will share management, conservation, educational and eco-tourism strategies for the next five years, officials said.

The MJP’s celebrity benefactors were not present at the ceremony, but Stephan Bognar, executive director of the MJP, said that Cambodian officials have warmed to the project’s conservation priorities over the past year since the MJP has expanded its community development projects.

School renovations, agricultural training, and the construction of health posts and a soy milk factory to supplement school lunches are all current MJP projects underway in six villages in Samlot district.

As part of the sister relationship, in March and April, three Cambodian park rangers will have a chance to shadow US rangers at parks in the US, Bognar added.

Holly Bundock, assistant regional director for the National Park Service based in California, said US park officials are hopeful that their Cambodian counterparts will be able to draw on their experiences with illegal loggers and poachers in Samlot to help US officials combat marijuana cartels.

Brad and Angie is such a naughty couple…LOL

ad and Angelina buy French Quarter mansion

By Kate Moran and Gordon Russell
Staff Writers

The average income in New Orleans scooted a bit higher this month when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie dropped $3.5 million on a French Quarter mansion.

The Hollywood couple, who occupy the upper strata of celebrity, bought a three-story, 7,400-square foot home in the lower French Quarter this month and have enrolled their oldest child at a local school. The house they selected — their fourth, according to a tabloid that posted the story on its Web site this week — is a gray-green, balconied affair near the riverfront, complete with a two-car garage, a detached guest house and a rear courtyard cloistered from view of even the surrounding houses.

Apparently intent on staying a while, they have also been mingling with the hoi polloi at bars and restaurants near their house.

New Orleans was atwitter for weeks as the couple checked out private schools and went house-hunting around the French Quarter and Garden District. The gossip about where they had finally settled took on all the detours and wrong turns that might be expected from amateur celebrity watching.

The couple, who are famous for adopting children from poor countries, indeed seem to have adopted New Orleans and its recovery as a pet cause. Last year, Pitt held a competition last year for architects to design eco-friendly homes in devastated areas of New Orleans.

“This is a social justice issue,” Pitt has said of Katrina recovery. “In a catastrophe, you help the most vulnerable first, and we failed to do that.”

One prominent city realtor said the couple’s presence in the city would boost recovery — and property values.
“I think it’s a fabulous thing for the city,” said Arthur Sterbcow, president of Latter & Blum Realtors. “It’s a real boost for consumer confidence. And it will add exactly what we need, which is more focus on what needs to be done down here.”

Sterbcow also said the sale to perhaps America’s best-known couple is likely to intrigue other wealthy celebrities and could have a snowball effect.

“It’s a huge thing for the city,” he said. “These are two of the most popular people in the world.”

Neither Pitt nor Jolie signed the bill of sale on the cash deal with Fairview Realty. Instead, they delegated that job to Richie Malchar, who is identified in various news reports as the actor’s security chief. He is also the trustee of Mondo Bongo Trust, a Pitt holding listed on the deed as purchaser of the property.

“Mondo Bongo” is the name of a song by the late Clash singer Joe Strummer that accompanied a steamy sex scene in the movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” Pitt and Jolie began seeing each other while filming that movie.

A 2005 newspaper story said that a studio executive wanted the music changed because it made the scene “too sexy,” and he was afraid of offending fans of Jennifer Aniston, the actor’s jilted ex-wife. But the director, Doug Liman, successfully argued to retain the song.

Quarterites who live and work near the couple’s new digs responded with charactistic indifference to the news that international celebrity had alighed in their neighborhood.

Up the street from Brangelina’s place , Allison Miller and friend Joelle Robertson stood on a corner trying to figure out which house might be the couple’s new fortress. Miller had recently seen Pitt in the area while he was filming a new movie, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which also stars Cate Blanchett

“He seems to have a liking for helping people out,” she said.

Around the corner on Decatur Street, John Haubrich sipped a beer Wednesday at the Abbey, a relentlessly dark bar, even during the day, where he was also camped out when Jolie walked in with several friends last week. He said she made small talk with the other patrons, who were intrigued by her presencebut generally left her alone.

“She was nice to everybody who came in, and I found that refreshing because some people with money are high on themselves,” Haubrich said. “I think it is good for the city, but they should be left alone and given their privacy.”

The bartender seemed to have appointed herself protector of the newcomers, glaring at the local media who had started to congregate in the neighborhood by mid-afternoon.

“I wish everybody would leave them the f— alone,” the bartender said. “If people want to see them, they should go to the movies.”

“I wish everybody would leave them the f— alone,” the bartender said. “If people want to see them, they should go to the movies.”

Ah Dragonfly. Just reading your lovely descriptions of houses covered in moss and ivy makes me want to visit. I live in a house built in the 1800s – originally no plumbing/heat. HUGE beams. Still has a lot of the lathe and plaster made with horsehair. I think you are right about the way some of the newer buildings age. But, I’m reading your post again just for the wonderful words!

OC, today BOR is on TCR…..Stephen is really lucky that I love TCR because I would be catching this on youtube if I didn’t lol

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANGELAH!!!!! Wishing you all the best on you birthday and always. Have a wonderful birthday mi amiga

This is what their saying on US magazine site – Anyone that either defends or admires this woman does not say a lot about you. She is a despicable human being that has absolutely no regard for anyone or anything unless it effects her directly. One poster said that she doesn’t care about fame, fortune, real estate etc., GIVE ME A FLIPPIN’ BREAK. This is the woman that owns a very large estate in England, property in California and in Cambodia. She own her own plane, travels by private plane. She picked a profession that would gain her international exposure (and still stays in the profession) and drips herself in designer gowns and diamonds when she goes out (like anyones else in her profession). She is NOT a Saint. She is a loud mouth adulterous hypocrite. She has made a career out of stealing other womens men and yet she won’t talk to her father because he cheated. SHE IS HER FATHER. ………..
………Thank you….its time people really know who this lady is…she is NOTHING without her props…..Maddox, Zahara and now her prize prop..Shiloh the blob…this is the prop she will use to keep Brad tethered to her…She is the WORST kind of woman..one who cannot be trusted around your husband, boyfriend or even girlfriend…We ALL know someone like her…she reeks of desperation and clingyness..and while she is very attractive, she obviously does not fully realize this and has to steal everything..(because of her LOW self esteem) instead of waiting for the person who should be with her. This person will NEVER be married….there are enough people in the world so we don’t have to steal each others spouses..she has put into motion a chain of events that will leave her in a very bad emotional state one day…then and only then she may be aware of what she has done. Brad Pitt is no innocent either…He should have tried worked things out with this woman who he did LOVE at one time

They are talking about the “backlash” against Angelina Jolie and how Angelina was a diva at the Vogue shoot – what’s going on..?

African Girl @ 01/18/2007 at 9:58 am

Hi all,
AJ Backlash? Seriously?! And just when did this backlash start? Honestly, people need to realize that wishing things were a certain way, will not make it so. My thoughts on how the negativity spreads goes like this…..

1)There’s a small blurb about AJ and BP
2) Someone posts it here (or another site)
3)The fans make a big deal about it
4) Someone comes here, sees what’s been discussed, takes it and posts it on another website….and on an on it goes. The next thing, websites like Contact Music (sites that come up when you do a google news search) have it on. Then the UK sites pick it, the Indian sites pick it….and so on until E’ News and daily 10 get their hands on it….giving it an illusion of legitimacy.

There is a paradigm shift in tabloid news reporting (and even legit news reporting for that matter) they don’t rely on the friend of a friend of a celeb, they don’t shoot in the dark anymore…see, thanks to blogs, they know EXACTLY what the masses talk about and what they want. I’m also beginning to think the only way to stop the negativity is to STOP DWELLING ON THE NEGATIVE.

To life
First off, to say “These Networks i.e Fox, MSNBC, CNN,and the other networks bring us the REAL news” is a little naive. Last month, one of them (I can’t remember which) had the editor of In Touch Weekly on their show. In Touch Weekly?! A magazine everybody on the surface of the earth knows deals in lies and half-truth. Are we supposed to see that and not have our confidence shaken? You know what else….. I bet if I did a search, I’ll find out the Network is one way or the other related to In Touch Weekly and this why I say believing these networks bring us the REAL news is naive. Having In Touch Weekly on what is mean to be a legit news network…is what happenswhen the business of making money mates with the business of making news. I remember when News Networks were being bought by the Corporations….there was a big stink over it over it and back then I really didn’t understand what the big deal was but now…it couldn’t be clearer. Apart from the total loss of objectivity, these companies are all about making money and if lies sells, then that’s what they will peddle. When I say loss of objectivity, case in point….A few years back, there was a child molestation accusation leveled at Disney World…we heard the news everywhere but ABC….why? Because Disney Owns ABC. Do you think NBC will ever do an expose on GE? Or CBS on Viacom? What we should be asking ourselves is – What happened to the media being the gatekeeper for the people? So you can’t fault anyone for being a little skeptical of these so called “legit” news source. Another thing, we don’t believe anything written in the tabloids….Period.

I’m glad you’re doing better. My prayers are with you and your family.

CURLY AND FIRST AND LAST POST
Honestlym I get really ecited when I see your names because I know I’m about to read something very interesting.

i LOVE it! i FRIGGIN’ LOVE IT! brad named the trust after the song they danced to in MAMS. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! these two are just too damned cute for words!

Those are 2 example posts – I’d suggest the BAMSZ fans wander over to the site and send mail to Us Mag to stop stirring the pot because these posts are on a thread, asking, Is there a backlash against Angelina Jolie? And a spot where people can vote! They are creating the “backlash” – I put it on here so the fans will maybe write to Us to stop.

Is there a backlash? Doubt It @ 01/18/2007 at 10:09 am

Where is the backlash? Come on! It is really called ENVY !!! Some people just cannot accept the fact that ANGIE and BRAD stole the night at the Golden and Globe, bringing GLAMOR back to Hollywood … and on top of that … BABEL won.

It must really be truly hurting for some people ….

BABEL on its way to $100 million plus in the boxoffice (world wide).

Lynn Campbell @ 01/18/2007 at 10:11 am

I really love, love the house BP/AJ bought and I love the fact that they are in New Orleans. I can picture them there, something about it just seems so right to me, I think they will fit in there very well. I loved New Orleans when I visited years ago and am a big fan of the movie Interview with the Vampire, so maybe it is just me, though! :)

RYAN IS MILKING IT @ 01/18/2007 at 10:12 am

E!’s resident red carpet monkey Ryan Seacrest is not pleased with Angelina Jolie giving him the brush-off when he tried to interview her at the Golden Globe Awards Monday night. Seacrest, who was covering the event as part of E!’s pre-show, went off on Jolie on his KIIS-FM radio show in L.A. on Wednesday morning.

“I asked her four questions and she didn’t even answer me,” he complained. “I literally stood there and tried to ask a couple of questions. At one point I just kind of let the E! microphone sit in front of her for a second to see if she was going to acknowledge it, and she clearly wanted nothing to do with me or my question or my answer or any of it.”

Seacrest was more forgiving of Jolie’s other half, Brad Pitt, who was standing next to her during the interview and did most of the talking. “Brad was fantastic.”

The host went on to praise the actress for her charity work, but complained about her dour expression on the red carpet: “I think doing good is fantastic. A lot of people are benefiting around the world from their doing of all of these nobles things. But smile.”

Cohost Ellen K then came to Angie’s defense saying, “Well, she has said that she finds all these award shows a waste of time and money.”

“Well then don’t go,” Seacrest shot back. “Don’t go. Don’t go support your man. Don’t go.”

I THINK IT’S TIME TO DO SOMETHING,. LET’S EMAIL HIM

BABEL WON.

GOOD KARMA for Brad and Angie.

GOD MUST TRULY BE a BAMZS FAN!

CAN WE STOP WITH THE E STORY CAN WE JUST E MAIL RYAN AND BE DONE WITH THE STORY.Please remind Ryan of his previous interview with Angelina and that they trespassed B and A’s home and why was he asking stupid questions.

OT A black version of Oceans 11?

The biggest names in “Black Hollywood” are about to get together for one big extravaganza of a film.

I’m told that “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner is putting together his very own black “Ocean’s Eleven,” a heist film that would feature Chris Tucker, Chris Rock and Eddie Murphy at the very least.

Ratner is also said to be talking to Denzel Washington about playing a roguish villain. He also may ask longtime pal Courtney Love to join the cast.

Washington should be interested, since the script for this unnamed project is being written by Russell Gewirtz, who wrote Washington’s hit Spike Lee film “The Inside Man.”

The untitled film will be produced and distributed by Universal, which has quickly usurped its smaller indie label Focus Features as the more interesting of the two imprints.

Watch for Ratner to add more heavy hitters once the script is finished. These could include young actors like Derek Luke or Anthony Mackie, comedian Martin Lawrence and some older actors too, like Sidney Poitier or even Bill Cosby.

African Girl @ 01/18/2007 at 10:36 am

Maniston and Lylian
Thanks for the articles. How do people continue to justify their dislike for AJ and BP? I don’t get it….I just don’t. Thank goodness, the people who really matter respect them. The tabloids and the Fanistons can take a long walk off a short pier for all I care.

It is obvious for ANYONE to see that Seacrest is going on the defensive. He has gotten a lot of critcism as well as E news for their unprofessional and outright laughable coverage of the Golden Globes. I suspect that E news won’t have too many A listers to interview during the Oscar Coverage. AJ was gracious to Seacrest as ANYONE can witness on You tube. Even when he asked a bunch of dumb and stupid questions. He even went so far as to pushed the mike directly in her face. I think it is a good idea to write E news if you want to. However, Seacrest can try to spin whatever he wants, the proof is in the tape.

Good morning, “magandang umaga” for many!

Does anybody know if the story of Courtney and David going up to Brad went beyond hellos between Angelina and Courtney? I think I remember People reporting the encouter in their Seen and Heard but can’t find it anymore on their pages. reason i’m asking is because i felt CC looked so stiff when JA stood next to her on the red carpet for the premier of CC’s Dirt (?) and might have been getting weary of JA.

African Girl:

ITA. Why the continuing hatred against Angelina for a divorce that’s two years old now? I am perplexed at the venom thrown her way — it might be only from a small but vocal minority of fanistons, but still, the hatred that is being spewed can be frightening. I wouldn’t want to come across these kinds of people in real life … they are completely psychotic, acting like Brad left them. And all because of a sitcom TV hack who is not even genuinely nice, to me X comes across as the biggest faker, and a stupid one at that. Anyone seen her interviews and the way she answered the questions? Dumb Dumb Dumber!!!

PLEASE STOP BRINGING NEGATIVE POST TO JJ SITE AND STOP ASSUMING ON WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW. OTHER BLOGS, TABLOID AND MAGAZINE GET NEWS OF ANGELINA AND BRAD FROM HERE. ALL THE FAN SHOULD LEARN HOW TO THINK POSITIVE AND WRITE POSITIVE.
ALWAYS IGNORE HATER DO AS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHETHER THEY EXIST OR NOT.
LET ALL THE BAMZS FAN BE A POSITIVE THINKER. THINK POSITIVE, WRITE POSITIVE AND ALWAYS DREAM POSITIVE.

=================

Thank you Jo, I have not seen this video before. I saw the AH version of it. You can tell BP knows more about the film, so he answered almost all the questions, even though AJ knows more about the refugee subject. They are so good together. They know when to take a question, and when to step back. And yes, BP does know what he is talking about, don’t let his humble demeanor fool you.

African Girl you ask this question:

Thanks for the articles. How do people continue to justify their dislike for AJ and BP? I don’t get it….I just don’t.

Maybe if you would have read the whole artical you would have gotten your answer! In case you do not pick it out let me show you what it said.

Pitt and Jolie began seeing each other while filming that movie.

Ok, denaz, it was not your post, you have just brought it here. I apologize. And I agree with others there is no need to bring here and repeat such obvious bs, which is full of vicious lies. We don’t have to give ideas to lazy journalist who surf the blogs for info instead of doing their homework. I so much despise the entertainment media now.

Here is something about the Maddox Jolie-Pitt foundation. I’ve never been to Cambodia though a visit to Angkor Wat is forever on my cards. I do know it is very poor and has some dreadful statistics to show for it. What Angelina and Brad are funding is going to make a huge difference to people’s lives there. It is really wonderful. This is why I am a fan. Not for their looks (though they are beautiful) and not because they do or don’t smile for the fans when they go to an award.

Here it is:

Park Signs Agreement With Samlaut Protected Area

[Printer-friendly text version]

On December 19th, saffron-colored banners swirled over the open field at the Samlaut Protected Area in Cambodia and young children, orphans from a nearby city, dressed in traditional purple and yellow silk, danced before several hundred people gathered for the signing of a sister park accord between this park and Sequoia-Kings Canyon.

Regional Director Jonathan Jarvis signed the five-year accord between the two sites, which will bring the two park organizations together to learn from each other and address common issues such as illegal uses within park boundaries.

Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Sar Kheng, and two other cabinet ministers, including the Minister of Environment Mok Mareth and Minister of Tourism Lay Prohan, participated in the morning ceremony, which was hosted by Stephen Bognar, the executive director for the Maddox Jolie-Pitt project. The MJP project is spearheading the integration of this park within the UN Millenium Village of Samlaut.

The following article from the Cambodia Daily, entitled “Samlot Forest Conservation Effort Eyes Tourists,” provides additional details on the event. For more on the MJP project, click on “More Information” below.

************************

Samlot Village, Samlot district, Battambang province – This remote outpost has not attracted many visitors, and when it has, they have tended to be unwelcome.

The forest, which continues along the Cardamom mountain range through Pailin municipality to the Thai border, was a final refuge for Khmer Rouge soldiers in the 1990s. and is still strewn with landmines.

Rampant illegal gem mining inside the forest during the same decade turned the Sangke River red with dust and pollution.

The river has been rehabilitated in recent years, but park rangers who patrol the 60,000 hectares of forest in the Samlot protected area, which spans Battambang and Pailin, say they still contend with poachers, loggers and landgrabbers.

Poverty among villagers in the area complicates the picture, said Fred Beattie, senior conservation adviser for Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Maddox Jolie Pitt project, which employs 46 park rangers and 30 community development workers in the area.

Most small-scale poaching and logging, Beattie said, is carried out by poor villagers who have no other means to support themselves.

On Tuesday, Cambodia officials, US Ambassador Joseph Mussomeli and US park officials signed an agreement in Samlot to protect the 60,000 hectare forest that they hope will bring a new breed of visitor to the district – tourists.

Interior Minister Sar Kheng, Minister of Environment Mok Mareth, Tourism Minister Lay Prohas and Jonathan Jarvis, regional director of the US National Park Service, also named Samlot and Sequoia Kings Canyon parks in California as “sister parks.”

Rangers and officials in Samlot, Sequoia and Kings Canyon will share management, conservation, educational and eco-tourism strategies for the next five years, officials said.

The MJP’s celebrity benefactors were not present at the ceremony, but Stephan Bognar, executive director of the MJP, said that Cambodian officials have warmed to the project’s conservation priorities over the past year since the MJP has expanded its community development projects.

School renovations, agricultural training, and the construction of health posts and a soy milk factory to supplement school lunches are all current MJP projects underway in six villages in Samlot district.

As part of the sister relationship, in March and April, three Cambodian park rangers will have a chance to shadow US rangers at parks in the US, Bognar added.

Holly Bundock, assistant regional director for the National Park Service based in California, said US park officials are hopeful that their Cambodian counterparts will be able to draw on their experiences with illegal loggers and poachers in Samlot to help US officials combat marijuana cartels.
==================

Thank you Lylian for the article. This is another proof that AJ is, as BP said in an interview, “the force” behind all the good things they are doing in the world. I am so glad they just keep doing what they think is right, and not paying attention to the detractors. What is the meaning of a Ryan Seacrest, in the whole scheme of B&A’s world?

I FIGURE LIKE THIS ,IF YOU DON’T HAVE SOME HATERS ,THEN YOUR GAME IS WEAK….

so true, Mrs. Lenny!

Thanks Lylian for the article. I would like to note the irony here: Forests benefit all of us as humans living on the planet (carbon sinks), yet the responsibility of conserving forests are delegated to poor villagers who have no other means to sustain their livelihoods other than the products they obtain from the forest. By providing sustainable economic life to the vilages MJP foundation directly benefits these villagers, indirectly benefits to the environmental quality of the planet, which all of us, fans and haters alike, share.

Thanks once again,
