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 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.

    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.

    alero Says:

    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.

    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!

    Aimee Says:

    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.

    Barbarian/Geisha Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I think Says:

    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.

    Film Noir Says:

    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.

    Cameron Diaz is better Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    micro Says:

    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.

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.

    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.

    Virgo Says:

    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.

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.

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.

Third, it was the freaking E! the same E! that has been bashing bamzs over and over and trespassed on their property. Those biatches.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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!

    Angelina & Brad are true movie stars but they don’t take it that seriously.

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.

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.

    glad Angie is out of SC Says:

    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 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.

    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.
    +++++++++++++++++
    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.

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

    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

    dragonfly Says:

    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 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.

    ………………………………

    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!

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?

    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!

    Original jpf Says:

    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for posting..

    =====================================================
    jpf it is already happening people are taking that story for US Weekly and running with it and painting Angie as the bad person in it, I was surfing online earlier and saw it on the national allerger and did you know that there is a backlash against Angie lol, that one I have to laugh about, but apparently US Weekly is running a poll, are these people at US Weekly for real, backlash against Angie my ****

    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.

    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.

    The crab mentality in Hollywood is a way of life, the people who are on top are pulled down by envious and evil people.

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.

    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 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.

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.

    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.

    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 **** 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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

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.

    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.

    ____________________________________________

    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.

    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.

    stardust Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    “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.

    (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.

    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.

    Anna Says:

    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.

    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….

    I wonder why and how Americans can fall for a has-been duo and a philandering David to boot.

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

    David, I think has squeezed as much as he can from Europe and the States is a new market. Americans don’t know that he is a has been. We are still talking about Pele when he played here. LOL!!!!! Same situation different decade.

    Posh wants to start a film career and who better to befriend than Tom Cruise? They start at the top don’t they? That whole click (including J.Lo & Mark Anthony) is something staight out of a Fellini film. The paps are mostly US based British tabloid paps.

    Thanks for the links. I remember attending college in New Orleans and almost every weekend going to the French Quarters and Jackson Square. The courtyards are beautiful and so hidden. 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 Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    ___________________________

    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.

    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.

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.

And to try and debunk CNN,FOX,MSNBC and other news networks is just downright silly. These networks bring us the REAL news, like the important **** that is happening in the world. Iraq,anyone? They give two minutes of airtime to Brad and girlfriend, I seriously doubt they give a **** about them or need to talk about them in order to pull in ratings.

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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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…….

IF I ever did anything as crazy as live in the south (I like 4 seasons, though winter gets harder by the year) and became independently wealthy, I’d love a house just like that! I too am amazed at Brad living in such a house – I always thought he sort of didn’t get the art that type of house is. LOVE the Mondo Bongo buyer! lmao Just imagine being able to put down 3.5 million in CASH!

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

    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!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    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.

    You’re in Savannah?! The first college I attended was Georgia State U in Atlanta. One of my roomies and her bf would always go on holiday to Savannah but I never made it. I love the movie and book of Midnight In The Garden Of Good and Evil basically for the scenary. Just a beautiful city, and I think it and NOLA are the quintesstial Southern experience esthetically speaking.

    I love the South, I really truly do. I always knew where I stood with people there.

    jpf

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

    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.

    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.

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!!!

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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    Park Signs Agreement With Samlaut Protected Area

    [Printer-friendly text version]

    PWR Regional Director Jon Jarvis and Park Director Chay Simith signing the accord. Minister of Tourism Li Prohan, US Ambassador Joseph Mussomeli, Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng, and Minister of the Environment Mok Mareth stand behind. NPS photo.

    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.

    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.”

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..?

    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.

    RYAN IS MILKING IT Says:

    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.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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]

    PWR Regional Director Jon Jarvis and Park Director Chay Simith signing the accord. Minister of Tourism Li Prohan, US Ambassador Joseph Mussomeli, Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng, and Minister of the Environment Mok Mareth stand behind. NPS photo.

    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?

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.

    I hate that you brought this here; however, there is a little part of me that is gleeful that Seacrest’s feathers are ruffled. He just comes across as a temperamental b^tch, or in other words, himself. Me thinks that he’s angling for a phone call from Angelina, apologizing for her demeanor. Phone calls are gold, you know, like when Kelly Ripa called the View and confronted Rosie. Or, the call from Chris Daugherty, after Seacrest got slammed for the way he revealed that Chris was out.

    Either he wants a phone call or a heart-shaped box of chocolates. He’s not going to stop pouting until he gets it.

    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 **. 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!

    Rotflmao…Honestly between the Crazies on US Weekly and Ryan Secrest, I don’t know who is funnier. I’m so glad you used the word Milking because it conjures the image of a baby and that’s exactly what Ryan Secrest is. He’s not taking the blame for asking stupid questions…no, no he’s gonna blame her for not answering his stupid questions. The sad part of this is, some people actually believe he has a point.

    Bluemoon
    Black Ocean’s 11? That sounds interesting. By the way, anyone watching the Knights of Prosperity on ABC? Lmao….That is the FUNNIEST SHOW on TV. Everything about that show is BRILLIANT…my only worry is how long they’re sustain the premise.

    I’m pretty sure she went with BBT and from what I remember, she didn’t smile then.

    And again, Angelina smiled on the red carpet; she just didn’t smile it up for E and that just ticked them off. Nevermind that they’ve been very nasty about her before the GGs. And they allowed one of their programs to depict one of her children as a subhuman creature, treated another as an inconsequential, but convenient punchline, and of course, Shiloh as an auction item. And remember, E trespassed on Brad’s property and failed to report this incident on their very own network.

    hey there! you’ve been paged in the EMG. everybody’s been wondering where you’ve been hiding…

    not only are brad & angie cute, they’re funny. mondo bongo trust indeed! my friend M and i were just talking about how cool it is that they’re going to spending more time in N.O. it may not be a permanent move (i didn’t think it would be) but it makes sense that they would hang out, put the kids in school and let braddy finish his work and oversee the global green project. as for the rest of HW following their example, i dunno. but it’s possible that producers will start considering using N.O. as a location for films again. before the storm, we were doing really well with attracting that kind of business.

    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

    —————————————

    Oh MY GOD. I feel SICK to my stomach. This is THE WORST of it: 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.”

    “Defense” my a s s!! This is THE WORST thing she could have said.

    Basically, KNOWING Brad is up for a possible Oscar nomination, This B*TCH LIES, PUTS WORDS in ANGELINA’S MOUTH, that she NEVER said – basically Brad and Angelina HATE AWARD SHOWS! They are literally trying to sabotage Brad’s chances. Angelina has NEVER said ANYTHING of the kind! Cindy needs to b*tch slap them ALL. This is unconsiconable. And I’m sorry – forget that ‘no bad news’ news stuff, we need to amend that to posting things where ACTION is definitely needed.

    He is DISGUSTING!!

    I wish Terri Hatcher would OUT him SOOOOO BAD!!

    “Well then don’t go — don’t support your man,’ he says — UGH, what a LITTLE B**CH, he is…I NOW believe the rumors about him — Ryan Seacrest is just a vicious she-male attacking a pretty girl. He probably wants Brad for himself.

    I bet Angelina wanted Brad to win, more than HE wanted to win…and the way Seacrest is twisting this is just disgusting. I PRAY he is OUT of the Award contention..these talking monkeys are NOW deliberately making trouble INSIDE the industry and it’s just abhorrent. They are injecting this rumor, and actually creating science fiction — just MAKING UP MOTIVATIONS for PEOPLE…and RUNNING WITH THEM. ‘Angelina thinks Award shows are dumb and a waste of money, she doesn’t want to support Brad.’ OMG, I loathe him so much now. Ugh.

    As for THIS:

    “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.”

    Someone needs to tell Ryan that Angelina was NOT nominated for anything, and that there film Babel, was an ensemble piece and a small film, and he needed to ask Brad about THE FILM and HIS ROLE in it. Then maybe, he could have artfully segued into one question for AJ that she would have gladly answered. The most telling thing here though, is that IT IS APPARENT HOW THESE red carpet monkeys have gotten out of control, and have let their arrogance and stupid worthless celebrity for celebrity’s sake actually delude them into thinking THEY are THE STORY. In other words, so I get it it E!, it wasn’t about Brad and his night, it was about RYAN and WHY ANGELINA WOULDN’T TALK TO HIM….WAAH…WAAAH To top it off, he is ADMITTING that even after seeing that Angelina was deferring to Brad and didn’t want it to be about her, he DELIBERATELY STUCK THE MIKE IN HER FACE & LET IT SIT!!!!

    …and he’s a DUMB CHEESEHEAD TOO, doesn’t he, and E! know that THEY CAN’T LIE and FABRICATE sh*t in the age of Youtube and instant digi-vid??!! Everyone, for the last 3-4 days has seen the interview, and NO ONE is saying Angelina was anything but polite.

    The worst part about it was that he had met her previously on one of his other kajillion other shows, and they had had a nice interview a couple years back, pre-Brad…so why all this ugly insinuation now, just because AJ didn’t tap dance for him on Brad’s night…word must have come down BEFORE the GG’s that a lawsuit was coming through for the property violation or something. I think they figure, start a deliberate war, then when news gets out about the lawsuit, it will look like Brad & Angelina are retaliating for something trivial. There’s GOT to be a motivation behind this — OR, it could just be that all of the other cheese monkeys on the red carpet – take their cue from Seacrest, and he was PO’d at AJ….

    But MY GOD, let’s just say hypothetically that it was ALL TRUE, that Angelina HATES RYAN SEACREST and BLEW HIM OFF…TELL ME THIS -how do you THEN make the LEAP in ascribing such all-encompassing negative motivations to Angelina, number 1) That she is not supportive of ‘her man.’ and 2) That she hates award shows and that they’re a waste!

    What a LIE.

    See THIS is the evidence right here, that there is a DELIBERATE smear job taking place. I mean if any other person felt like they were being blown off, especially if they know AJ talked to other interviewers – wouldn’t you take it PERSONALLY?? Shouldn’t Seacrest take it personally and maybe quip, ‘Oh I guess she doesn’t like me or something,’ — but no, he’s such a evil petty little b*tch, he tries to create this controversy that AJ was not supporting Brad and that she hates Award shows.

    This is a smear job.

    It wasn’t until I saw that Forbes list that it hit me – at 110 mil, and CASH COW like Maniston, that this could possibly be Huvane driven. They’re trying to sabatage Brad.

    Please – if anyone is so inclined, feel free to forward my post, or use any of this in an e-mail to E! and to Seacrest! Make sure you let them know they are being boycotted. I guess Seacrest is now riding the AI wave, and feels he can’t be touched. If I had half a mind I’d bombard Simon Cowell, maybe he’ll call him out about it.

We have a lot to be thankful for as fans that we get to see and read about how loving and strong they are as a family. It is the family that Brad wished for when he was asked by Diane Sawyer during the Ocean’s 12 interview his fondest wish in life. That goes without saying that he never considered his then marriage his family.

    Just wanted to add this real quick. I think it is the stupid Jen fans who made Jen sound so stupid. I adore Jennifer but I don’t think or want she and Brad to get back together. That is never gonna happen. I love Brad and Angelina and their kids, they are obvious soulmates. The people who rag you guys on this forum so hard about Brad/Angelina and throw Jen’s name in there are people who have issues in their own lives, not people who know how to appreciate a celebrity. And I agree with the person who said boycott Ryan Seacrest, he is an idiot who should not have had the privilege to interview Brad and Angie. And the thing of it all is that no one who actually sees Brad and Angelina together could possibly believe that he would ever want to leave her, their love and respect for each other is so obvious.

    The problem I think is that we care more than angelina does, if she really care about this she will hire a PR guy but she doesn’t, she doesn’t give a ****. And of course tabloids and low scums like Ryan are going to make profit of this situation. The press was the one who started this **** of Angelina the Saint, she never did, and now they are trying to do to the opposite and take her down. Angelina is not the poster girl of the MiniVan Majority and never will, she always be the “bad, dark, weird” girl that does a lot of charity work, and I think she’s ok with that. The only thing that will probably change in the future is how she comes across in interviews, I think she’s going to be more reseved because I really think she’s getting very tired of the press. I’m looking forward to see her in Berlin next month.

God, the kid was taken with a gun pointed to his head and was told that he and his family would be killed if he tried to escape. Also, his parents believed that he was sexually abused too.

    BOR is just so despicable and he’s a father too. I know the only reasons he’s saying this crap is for ratings because his are dropping and Shawn (the teen that was kidnapped) has piercings. So in his screwed up mind, Shawn must be some kind of punk therefore he deserves to be blamed.

    Cliniqua:

    I too have felt that this is a smear job to ruin Brad’s chances. Here’s another theory. I believe there was a real fight for PLAN B, mainly because of its past and current success. I believe JA wanted her hand on it. She didn’t get it and now Brad with his acting and ownership of PLAN B is a real power player. You see unlike most people here, I have always believed the Vanity Fair article was about PLAN B and not the marriage breaking up. Think about it guys, all of that vindictiveness was about losing out of a company that could have made her, a power player. She was part of it and to see herself not even owning any of it now while such hits as The Departed is getting produced must really gripe her. Not only that, but she can’t stick it to Brad and make his life hell like many ex-wives do. She is really in every sense of the word, an X. And to someone of JA narcissistic personality type, control and the ability to have power over people is more important than anything else. This poster on US Weekly made a statement that she wanted to control everything, even Brad, and that’s why they broke up. Hmmm!

    On another note, I find it interesting that JA is worth $110 million and all of her friends like Courtney(who was also on Friends making the same $1million per episode and who also buys and sells homes) and Sheryl Crow(with her own recording career) etc are not on the list. With all of that money, I think we know who really runs the friendship.

    Rise of Soft News: Consumptive Entertainment in Media

    Meaning of the phrase “hard news” and its tendentious complement “soft news” has changed dramatically over the past few decades. News is treacherously hard to define in an age when issues like L’affaire Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are regularly covered in “hard news” programs and when “turkey contests” are adjudicated within a news program right after news about homicides. (Fox News, 10/26/06, Morning News Programming)

    The fact is that “soft news” items have increasingly proliferated “hard news” programming in the past few decades. Aside from content, news programming has also been transformed stylistically since the advent of cable, and now features production ploys (and values) that are reminiscent of entertainment, for example use of sound and graphics in major news programs. It is disconcerting that shows like Bill O Reilly’s eponymous “O’ Reilly factor”, which use confrontation and group identity rituals to entertain their audiences and feature topics like “war of Christmas”, have become the staple of ‘hard news’.

    It is also important to note that soft news is not limited to television but pervades other forms of media. Pew researchers found in 2004 that 17% of the public regularly listens to talk radio. While the true numbers for definable soft news items may be contested, the content and style of hard news has unarguably shifted towards ‘soft news’.

    The rise of soft news has generally been understood as a result of twin economic pressures to lower production costs for news, and increase audience for basically the same information. The latter half of the argument is predicated on the assumption, which appears to be true, that majority of the audience members in US like to be entertained by news. The popularity of entertainment news, a sub section of soft news, can also be understood as a function of economy. In particular, information about celebrities has become increasingly important for social intercourse with friends, family and colleagues at work. Given the salience of entertainment news in social intercourse, it is but natural that people will pay more attention to entertainment information.

    In a related point, one can also look at rise in entertainment news as a reflection of the fundamental shift in economy, from an economy where significant value addition happened in production to where significant value addition happens during marketing. Given that celebrities are often pioneer new fashion trends and early adopters of lifestyle gadgets, the focus on celebrities can be seen as a ploy to sell more things. Other researchers have argued that the popularity of soft news stems from the dry, pompous, elitist model of hard news that resorted to intellectualizing rather than present stories with human interest.

    Given the proliferation of soft news, it is important to understand if/how it affects its consumers. As I argued above, rise in consumption of soft news may lead to a rise in consumerism. Consumption of soft news can also have significant political effects. To understand those effects fully, we must carefully analyze how soft news differs from hard news.

    One significant way in which soft news differs from hard news is that “soft news coverage of political issues is far less diverse than that of hard news,” according to Matthew Baum, professor of political science at UCLA. Soft news coverage is generally dominated by topics like crime, in particular violent crime, with frequency that overstates the true frequency and salience. The preponderance of crime stories leads to two related misconceptions – firstly that the problem is larger than it actually is and secondly that the problem is more important than it actually is.

    Another major way in which soft news differs from hard news is that “the soft news media almost never employ thematic (context along with news) frames”, according to Dr. Baum. and instead relies on episodic (event based) framing. Shanto Iyengar, a professor of communication at Stanford University, argues that episodic framing doesn’t let people trace the arc of responsibility behind the episodes and hence doesn’t give people information about where/whom to attribute accountability. This is a severe limitation for soft news for it hampers the key use of information accrual by a citizen in a democracy – to demand accountability. Combining the above two points, one may argue that not only are soft news consumers thinking (or shall I say feeling) about issues in a ‘wrong way’ but they are focusing their attention on ‘wrong’ issues.

    Researchers have argued that using stored heuristic cues, people can form opinions that reflect their ‘true opinion’ or opinions formed with full information. Assuming that this form of reasoning is the dominant form of reasoning, it is important to make sure that rich heuristic cues, based on sound information, are created which can then be used later to form internally consistent opinions. It seems natural that hard news programming, which provides more facts, will help produce richer, more differentiated, heuristic cues. Heuristic cues triggered by hard news have been shown to have a shorter shelf life than ones produced by soft news. By enhancing the shelf life of heuristic cues, soft news is at one level increasing the shelf life of information but it is doing so by compromising the richness (context, variegated meaning) of information. In short heuristic cues produced by soft news leave people ‘feeling’ they know more than they actually do.

    On the flip side, one can argue that soft news can in fact be used to inculcate better citizenry. For example, Researchers have shown that people who saw progressive drama where women were forced to confront the issue of abortion affected their ability of how they reasoned about the issue and even their stances on public policy. Soft news has the ability of narrating stories of a variety of groups that we will perhaps never meet in real life and hence it does the important function of sensitizing people to other cultures, sub groups and ideas. Admittedly it doesn’t do it well but when it does, it is likely that it makes people more empathetic.

    In all, news needs to do two things to be efficacious – it needs to provide information and it needs to make that information relevant to people.

    If anyone is interested, check out NEIL POSTMAN’S BOOK – AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH. He wrote this book in the 80s, when TV was still very tame. I wonder what he’ll say if he saw what has become of “News” today.

    It’s been a good year for Brad, because thank God he was nominated for his acting too and not only for his production company. Babel is going to be a front runner at the Oscars. I remember Brad said he was off duty he went with Angie to the premier of TGS. So I guess spouses can really be allowed to be off duty on the red carpet when they are not nominated so that we can focus on their movies and the awards.

    Does BOR=Bill O’Reilly?

    Unfortunately, I’ve seen other news telecasts painting the situation in a similar way, although no one has gone over the cliff and blamed Shawn outright. It is sad that Bill O’Reilly is being a reactionary with regards to a 15 year old boy, who was abducted at age 11. It’s very disappointing that the nitpicking that gave O’Reilly his fortune and prestige is now being directed at an already damaged child.

Yeah I bet he enjoys the fact that he now has to be tutored to catch up with his friends who are now high school freshmen, jerk.

    If Angelina grinned like a “Cheshire Cat” it would have been interpreted as “Look at me Y’all, I Have Brad Pitt and you don’t ……back at you Jen A!” or like it is being interpreted now. This is the first time they have been on an awards show Red Carpet, and it was his night to shine…..no one mentions this fact….just the fact that one of the talking heads at E! thought he was being blown off. Did you notice how practically “dwarflike” RS looked next to Brad & Angie….

    This is my last post regarding Seacrest (hopefully):

    I think the problem is that E depended on Brad and Angelina to provide the magic that’s been missing from the red carpet and from E’s programming. Personally, I think Brad and Angelina sprinkled some magic dust over the whole proceedings. Ironically, their magic stems from the fact that they fought so hard to not become affected by the innuendo, negativity and nastiness that Seacrest and E reverted to, immediately, when they didn’t get rewarded for their perceived attention and affection for this couple. E, like Barbara Walters, is backing their investment, ie, their procurement of Seacrest, because, despite the pathetic conduct of the majority of their on-air talent, on the red carpet and at the afterparty, they want to save face.

    In my mind, no one will surpass Brad and Angelina and E knows it too. Vaughiston, lord rest its soul, sure as h@ll couldn’t; Tomkat won’t; and the Beckhams… please. And I do agree that there a definite smear going on because in E’s opinion, Angelina wasn’t Hollywood enough for the occasion. Personally, if she acted like an overaffectionate Pomerian, they would probably piss about that too, stating her conduct wasn’t conducive of a goddess, which is what she looked like on the red carpet and at the GGs.

    I am determined that whenever I post here from now on I am only going to bring positive energy here, if I can’t I won’t post at all. There are so many positive things to look forward to in 2007, Brad and Angelina have 4 movies to premiere and promote between the two of them, AOJJ, Oceans 13, Beowulf, and A Mighty Heart! This is the motherload still happening for all us fans, and we are talking about Ryan Seacrest? Just think of all the appearances and articles four movies is going to generate! Plus you know that the academy award planners are simply salivating at the thought of a BP/AJ appearance, having them appear will make their ratings the highest they have been in years, too.

    I am going to be even more positive and say there is an outside chance that The Good Shepherd gets a best picture nomination and Robert DeNiro gets a best director nomination. I think the academy loves and respects Robert DeNiro and would like to see him honored for this film if possible. I really thought it was that good of a movie and felt like it was a difficult movie to direct and to star in, also. Add to all of this that Brad is still filming yet another movie to look forward to in CCOBB and Angelina will probably be making another film this year, we have an abundance of riches here. Plus make way for baby #4! Please be positive!

    I know y’all probably won’t believe this but I will try anyway. My boss is a guy who does work with Plan B and from what we heard around here the reason Jennifer Aniston is so wealthy is because Brad bought her shares of the company from her. There was no fighting over it, he simply bought her out and she agreed because she wasn’t really a “part” of the company anyway. Something about how he had to buy them from her because she couldn’t (more likely wouldn’t) just let him have them in the divorce. Although the shares were in her name so maybe she couldn’t? I also heard them …..my boss not anyone connected to Brad……saying that Jennifer Aniston still has a stake in some films made by Plan B. I don’t know if this includes Babel or The Departed, but it would explain where all her money comes from. Oh, and the word a while back was that there was some huge thing going on, a battle of sorts, between Brad (still married at the time) and someone he trusted which I think but am not sure was the guy who helped run the company. Anyway, my boss says Jennifer is never mentioned around there anymore and he has seen Angelina just hanging out at the offices. Very friendly and not all in your face or acts like she is running things.

    The more we discuss it the more it will be blown up. I believe media people troll the boards to drum up controversy they then sell via their tabloids or entertaiment shows. Certain comments are just too familiar.

    All this was done on purpose because she was polite to RS, they just didn’t give him what he needed to build more controversy and so Debbie Matenapolous decided to create drama by planting this speculation of her behavior into people’s head. She’s a true B*itch.

    Anyway, it’s over and it doesn’t mean a thing. Their relationship is going to go on regardless. They both just seem so much more settled with each other. I can’t get over Pitt talking about his love more and more. It’s sweet.

Personally, I hope it’s a trend… BAMZS living outside of the Hollywood scene. I would love it if they would swing by Michigan, especially in the summer. The northwestern portion of the Lower Peninsula, with its beaches and plush farmlands and greenery could be refreshing, yet familiar place to visit.

    No, I’m not employed by the Michigan Travel Bureau, but I love visiting that area during the summer. I didn’t get a chance to go last year, but I do miss visiting the orchards, roadside fruit stands, and the whole culture in that area.

    Brad 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.”

    For those who don’t know it, it’s the TRUE story of Jeannie Most (? I think that’s who it is…). She grew up in the most poverty stricken parts of Apalachia with parents who literally had no idea of how to be a parent. And her grandparents were WORSE!

    I agree with just letting this go.

    The more we discuss it the more it will be blown up. I believe media people troll the boards to drum up controversy they then sell via their tabloids or entertaiment shows. Certain comments are just too familiar.

    All this was done on purpose because she was polite to RS, they just didn’t give him what he needed to build more controversy and so Debbie Matenapolous decided to create drama by planting this speculation of her behavior into people’s head. She’s a true B*itch.

    Anyway, it’s over and it doesn’t mean a thing. Their relationship is going to go on regardless. They both just seem so much more settled with each other. I can’t get over Pitt talking about his love more and more. It’s sweet.

    ^^^^

    They seem seriously settled with each other if you ask me. It’s crazy to think they aren’t, I mean just look at how interwoven every area of their lives are.

    I think some people believe Jolie-Pitt don’t argue fuss and fight. Personally? I KNOW they act like everyone else and have their moments when they just want to kick an ass and take a name……………….but then there’s the makeup sex :)

    MY comments on this is that they loved lovely and I watched the while E! red careot thing because they were going to be there otherwise NO! So they got me to watch because they would be there. And it wasn’t Debbie M who stated on air that night it was the little ****** that was with her he said something like “what was wrong with AJ and the attitude”. She replied that she might not want to be there because she’d rather be doing charity work. But RS is a stupied ass. He kept putting that mic in her face and she was looking at him like talk to Brad. Then when he asked about the constant media pressure Brad said no comment and he pushed the mic in her face again after he knew that she wanted him to talk to BP. Then BP said maybe you should handle that ? and she started to unload saying “you just live your life and be with your family and ignore it” he took the mic back really quick and AJ gave one of the nastiest looks I have ever seen her give. He was the #### and she ruled over him in the nicest way. Then they bashed her the whole week before and now they want to be nice in her face.Then turn around and bash her the week after. I have been trying to understand what she says when she comes up with him I thought she said I’m not talking to presss. Again they want her to be nice and gracious to them when they talk and treat her like ****.Whatever she did would have been overblown and don’t think for one min that they are not aware of their surroundings and what is being said about them. THere was once a time I thought that maybe she wouldn’t be mentally strong enough for all of this but she is and I love it. Ryan trying to start a feud is not the best thing in his interest. She is not goint to say **** and that will make him more upset.

So she said she walked straight down the carpet till she reached the end, and thinking to herself:”this is easy”. That’s when the show producers came to her and made her redo the whole thing, stopping at each tv station to be interviewed. LOL.

    ^^^^

    Angelina did at GG just like Brad did at TGS and the above is proof of that. At TGS Brad kept in the background as much as possible. He took his leave when it was time for her to do the solo things and no one made a deal about it.

    I remember when they were walking into the TGS premiere some interviewer guy was trying to stop Brad but BP kept walking past, and the only time he turned around was when the guy asked if he was proud of Angelina, and Brad continued to walk but did say “very much so.”

    Angelina was so visably trying not to allow the attention to fall on her, or on them in the personal at the GG’s. Her body language was picked up by the pro’s, and for the most part they respected it. The Robinson lady from Extra (?) did a great job with all the people she talked with, and she didn’t ask dumb questions. She knew something about each of them, but not so personal that she’d put them on the spot.

    julia Says:

    You are so right about Brad and his actions toward Angelina. He is always aware of where she is and has this protective stance toward her. It’s like he wraps her in cotton, and this is new for her. In the past she was usually on her own, or acting as the protector in a relationship. Brad lets her know that he has her back, that he will take care of things. Brad has a kind of “don’t worry, be happy” attitude about him and that is a plus for Angelina. I think he would do just about anything for her. She seems softer, and so happy to be with him, her eyes just glow when she is looking at him. I think that this is the best time of their lives.

    On Access Hollywood they are showing how to get Angie’s and JLo’s makeup and look. They are also talking about them and their NO home and neighborhood in a very positive way, and Brad’s efforts with the rebuilding effort in NO. Way to go. They also showed NCage’s home (it is supposed to be haunted) two blocks away from B&A’s home. E!’s loss will turn out to be a bonanza for the other shows. Inside Edition also showed the house.

    Hi you guys,

    I just posted the following on that blog out of the UK that is full of hateful, Frightful Females and that shall remain nameless, lol: Someone there asked the following question, based on the rapid attempts to convince people that Angie was being haughty etc, based on the E! incident. The hypothesis is that, when Brad and Angie got home, they “got into it” about Angie’s “behaviour”:

    [b]What happened that people think Brangelina got into a fight?[/quote][/b]

    And i responded:

    Damn good question! Not a damn thing happened to even remotely suggest that they “got into it” when they got home.
    The fact is, literally millions of people have by now, seen the red carpet arrival of Brad and Ange, via the marvels of 21st century technology, namely youtube and other sites that allow anyone to replay the event for their own edification.
    So any attempt to ascribe ‘bad behaviour’ on the part of Angie just wont wash. The evidence is there to see exactly how she behaved. The woman smiled and engaged others, etc.
    Remember, IT WAS BRAD’S NIGHT! And just as how at the TGS premier, Brad actually told nosey parkers: “I’m off duty tonight” when they wanted to interview him, Angie was “off duty” at the Golden Globes. She was there simply to suport her spouse. And, obvious to me and anyone else with COMMON SENSE, she was not going to allow herself to be dragged into giving an interview about her personal life on a night when NO ONE ELSE was being subjected to that! You can see from the videos that she literally pushed Brad toward the ******* ryan secrest instead of allowing him to interview her, when the fact is, she wasnt the one with a film nominated!
    Why should anyone allow themself to do what they do not wish to do, even a celebrity?

    Which brings me to my next point: everyone is conveniently forgetting that this was the first MAJOR EVENT attended by the couple as a couple. It was very obvious to me that Angie was nervous and I deduced from that, that they agreed at home that they would never leave each others’ side. As you can see, they were practically joined at the hip all evening.

    It very easy for you Angie-hating ******** on here to forget that the woman is a human being…..with all the same feelings as any other person. That she was nervous is not hard to deduce…..we have heard her say it before that, for example, going to Washington DC to address congress about her causes for children was a nerve-wracking experience for her, especially given that she wasnt the best student in school. However, she drew strength from the validity of her cause and her convictions and she has successfully lobbied and gotten bills on child protection legislation PASSED! with the support of members of both major parties!…….Dont take my word for it, go look it up, you lazy sonsofbitches.
    This is a woman who epitomizes the adage: “Feel the fear…and do it anyway.”

    I’ve said this before and i’ll say it again, ad infinitum: not one of you on this pathetic board comes even close to being the quality human being that is Angelina Jolie.

    I would love AJ in any film but I would be scared to watch a movie with so much violence as some people imply about Sin City 2. Maybe Brad does not want her star in a movie with nudity in it. Maybe I’m only guessing.

    FF??

    Sorry to disappoint you and that was a great post but it was another wasted attempt to put some sense in some people’s brain that they don’t have one, let alone any sense or rational thinking in the first place. This creatures (cause I really don’t know how to qualify them since they are too psychotic to be humans) are vigorously believing that Angie used voodoo to get Brad and when she realizes that he might consider to leave she makes a new portion to get him back. ROTFLMAO!! It’s like talking and arguing with a wall with these things.. They are mute, blind and deaf to any aspect of basic logic.

    Someone brought this to my attention and I thought it was quite interesting. It’s a quote by Angelina Jolie that was culled from a Nov 2004 ESQUIRE mag interview which I’m also posting alone with the link.

    Women We Love: Angelina Jolie

    By Mike Sager
    November 2004, Volume 142, Issue 5

    She materializes in the dark lobby bar at the Hotel Bel-Air, a wisp of smoke, late but somehow unexpected.

    She looks at me attentively with large blue eyes. Her hair is long and chestnut colored, framing her porcelain face, her lips preternatural. She is smaller than I imagined, thin and insubstantial. Cloaked in a camel-colored overcoat, vaguely rakish, she brings to mind Amelia Earhart.

    It is our second meeting. In the three nights since last we met, she has stayed in three different hotels—two in Beverly Hills and one in New York City, where she went, she says, partly because she had a business meeting, but also because her son loves to play in Central Park.

    Her son’s name is Maddox Jolie, and she adopted him in Cambodia in 2002. Like his mother, the boy is airplane mad. She promised him on his second birthday that she’d learn to fly. And just the other day, on his third birthday, she test-flew her new airplane. (She calls it “our new plane.”) She soloed for the first time in August.

    Mounting the barstool, she removes her coat to reveal a tight black sleeveless top over low-slung jeans. On her left shoulder, skin-colored makeup barely covers an old tattoo. In the course of the evening, she will allow me to moisten the tip of my finger with my tongue and try to wipe off the makeup, under which had once been written BILLY BOB. (Also, she will turn her back to me and pull up her shirt and bend over, all of which to show me her new tiger tattoo, which stretches roughly from her shoulder blades on down to the swell of her ass.) The shoulder itself, the arm, the neck, all of her, really, appears a bit too thin. She looks fragile, like a refugee.

    Well known for blurring her personal and onscreen lives—the heroin-addicted bisexual model in HBO’s Gia; the fetchingly psychotic roommate in Girl, Interrupted, for which she won an Academy Award; the sultry and insatiable wife of Billy Bob Thornton in Pushing Tin, with whom she shared a real-life interest in tattooing, self-mutilation, and bloodletting—Jolie has reinvented herself once again.

    On the eve of two big-ticket movie roles, as Alexander the Great’s mother in Oliver Stone’s epic Alexander, and as Brad Pitt’s professionally murderous wife in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the latest incarnation of Angelina Jolie is a cross between her comic-book hero Lara Croft and her passionate do-gooder in Beyond Borders. Newly responsible but still untamed, she speaks softly, almost a whisper, sipping pinot noir:

    I’ve always been perceived as kind of wild or bad or weird or crazy. If you knew me privately, you might think I was even wilder than my reputation. But I’m also much softer. I’m a soft woman. Softer than people think.

    Most of the bad girls I play end up crying for some reason.

    I actually don’t have a place to live right now. I have a house in England and an office in New York, but I have a bug in me to change everything.

    I’ve always hoped that one day I would have a life that was more exciting than the characters I was playing in the movies. Now I think I’m on the right track. My life is as interesting to me as my work.

    Often people make the mistake of thinking that just because there is a camera or a microphone in your face, you have to speak.

    You can’t get more alone than flying solo for the first time.

    There are all these metaphors from the early fliers about flying above the cynics of the world and being free. I don’t disagree with that. And I love the discipline of committing to something. Because this is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Just the work of it and the commitment and how long it’s taken. The classes. The science and math of it. Meteorology. Navigation. All of it. I’m taking the English and the American courses at the same time. In America there’s one test; in England there are eight.

    They say flying is better than sex. To me, it is. Absolutely. Hands down. It just is. Don’t ask.

    For three years I’ve been a Goodwill Ambassador through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Initially it was just for myself, you know, wanting to get my hands dirty, to be a part of the real world, to get myself an education. But then I went to some hearings in Washington and I realized that a lot of people don’t understand what’s really going on.

    In the last few months, I’ve been in a constant state of movement. I went to Chad—I spent my birthday [June 4, her twenty-ninth] in Chad—then to Cambodia. Then I went to Washington for Refugee Day, and then I went to speak at the secretary of state’s open forum on trafficking. Trafficking is different in different areas of the world. In Cambodia, the highest rate of people trafficked are children for begging. Hill-tribe girls are likely to end up used for sex or slave labor. Then I went to Italy to speak for We Are the Future, for children of conflict, and then I went to Spain for its Refugee Day. I went to Jordan for the Arab Children’s Congress. Then I went back to Cambodia to deal with the dams and the mining and the poaching. That was my summer vacation. In between, I took flying lessons.

    It’s an unbelievable feeling to be at one with the air.

    I wanted to have a concrete skill where I could do something to help people in real ways. I’d love to be able to donate my services, to fly sick people to hospitals, you know, like people who have cancer, or people who have lost their limbs. I could deliver food. Anything. Just to be doing something practical would be great.

    The media reports things in certain ways. They know exactly what they’re doing. Like in Darfur, Sudan, they say that the violence is Arabs against blacks. You read this and you get a certain picture in your mind. But the truth is, on both sides, the people all look exactly the same! Most people don’t realize this. It’s significant.

    I’m obsessive about being organized. I guess it’s because I’ve never lived anywhere solid.

    At first, the idea of me playing Alexander’s mother was weird. Then I read the script, and I love Oliver’s writing. I love him. When he casts people, he kind of casts their spirit. And hopefully, if I did my job right, you’ll see the kind of specific spirit Olympias has. She’s not a typical mother. She’s a follower of Dionysus, the god of chaos. In every other scene she’s got a snake. The first time you meet her, she’s handing a snake to a five-year-old Alexander, showing him not to fear. She was from a time when you raised your children for greatness. You didn’t raise them to be happy and safe and sweet. You raised them to be heroic. To fight and kill. To not be afraid.

    Many of the refugees I’ve met were lawyers or doctors, people who lived in wealthy areas. And then suddenly they’re living in the middle of nowhere with nothing. We can’t imagine that happening in this country. It just doesn’t cross our mind.

    I read something somewhere that if it doesn’t scare you, it’s not courageous.

    I have a fire inside of me that maybe could be a little less. I’ve gone through two marriages because I couldn’t just be at peace and be at home and appreciate and enjoy my marriage or my life.

    Oliver Stone was really great in encouraging me to read more international newspapers, to be more involved, to question things. He got me kind of passionate about global issues.

    In Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Brad Pitt and I are a married couple who have been together for a few years. I’m a little homemaker, and I’m totally psychotic about how I want the curtains and everything, and he’s mowing the lawn, all that. And we’re in therapy. And we’re both in denial about there being anything wrong in the marriage and whose fault it is. We even argue about how long we’ve been married. One of us says five years; one of us says six. And then we realize, and the audience knows it before we do, that we both have a secret. It’s kind of a comedy. We spend most of the movie trying to kill each other.

    I don’t know how many movies I’ve done. I don’t keep count.

    Maddox is my little mate. We have long conversations. Before I got him, he was in an orphanage for seven months—seven months of other kids screaming and crying. He was living with kids who had AIDS and kids who had other diseases. I think in some weird way he feels an odd unity with loudness and suffering kids and stuff. He’s not used to being the only baby.

    I can’t get my son out of a plane. We landed the other day in New York, and the first thing he said was, “More, Mama!”

    I want to take Madd to see one of my movies, but I have to pick the right one. It’s tough. I think he might cry if he sees me. Either I’m the bad girl or I’m killed or I’m a mess emotionally or I step on a mine.

    I do believe I have to concentrate on my son. That’s why I have lovers right now and not a boyfriend. I don’t want my son to start calling somebody Daddy unless that person’s gonna stay.

    I have mainly two very close lovers. Wonderful men. I’ve been married so much in my life, I never really had lovers. So it’s been a kind of fun time. Hopefully the men are enjoying it as well.

    I don’t think there’s a man who is my lover who doesn’t feel empowered.

    Men are part of my life now, but not the defining element.

    Having the economic freedom to make your own decisions is defining.

    I don’t do anything. I don’t hang out with friends. I don’t shop. It dawned on me the other day: I don’t have any friends that I don’t work with. I’m aware of that.

    The tattoos, the blood, cutting myself—it’s all very much who I am.

    In the world I’d like to live in, we could all discuss those things. Instead, it gets turned into prurient headlines.

    In years past, I was just being myself. I was just sharing it more with people. Now I don’t feel like being constantly misinterpreted. Why share something if it’s just gonna be used for shock value?

    I guarantee you, my life is much more wild and free and headline-worthy today than it was when I was in all the headlines.

    Was I really on heroin? Turn off the tape.

    If you ask people what they’ve always wanted to do, most people haven’t done it. That breaks my heart.

    The first time I got married, I was young. I knew I wanted to be married and wanted to be his wife, and I wanted to know marriage, not just a boyfriend-girlfriend thing. And it was a great experience; it enriched both of our lives. But we knew it wouldn’t last forever.

    Billy and I were just so similar in the sense that we were so damaged by similar things and so wild in similar ways and so sensitive in similar ways.

    The thing about Billy is he’s genuinely eccentric; he’s genuinely who he is. We will be great friends forever.

    No, I don’t think I’ll be getting married again anytime soon.

    JFK Jr. wasn’t rated for the weather conditions he was flying in. That wasn’t just an accident. He shouldn’t have gone up in those conditions. I don’t know exactly what happened that day, but maybe the smarter thing would have been to say to your family, “Hey, we’re not gonna make it. We have to turn around.”

    I’m more careful about my flying than I’ve been about anything.

    For a while there I started to experiment a little with g forces; I got a little g-force happy. I did it with Madd in the plane the other day. And his little face turned red and he couldn’t stop laughing.

    The English: They might be repressed, but they’re good in bed.

    I had a little window tattoo for a while, which is now covered by the huge tiger on my back. The tiger was done by a monk. There’s also a lot of ancient Buddhist script. I told him about the projects I was doing in Asia and what my intentions were for raising my son as a Buddhist. And I kind of gave him a point on my back not to go higher than. I just kind of trusted him. He spent an hour and a half working freehand. Part of it was intense pain. My lower spine, that really hurt. I had no idea what he was doing back there.

    The window was this weird box, a tiny box, low on my back. Because ever since I was a kid, I used to stare out windows. I always wanted to go somewhere else. Wherever I was—I’d be married, I’d be on my wedding day, or I’d, you know, just had sex with my husband or just finished a shot in a movie or whatever it was—I’d always stare out the window and just think, There’s got to be something else. Now the window’s mostly covered by the tiger. Now, fortunately, I went through the window. I traveled there and lived there, which is something I never thought I’d be able to do. Now I stare at the sky thinking about flying.

    My mom and I have always been close. People don’t know that because they’re always writing about my father. She’s a great lady. Catholic schoolgirl. Very sweet. Almost the polar opposite of me as a woman and yet so supportive of everything wild and sexual and free, because she also lived through the sixties. She grew up very proper but hung out on Sunset Strip. So she’s got a neat balance.

    My mom is really proud of the fact that she gave me and Madd our last name. Jolie was my middle name until I dropped the Voight.

    Flying is looking up at the sky and seeing roads.

    That’s a new thing with motherhood: the whole getting to know the mothers. Part of me wants to avoid it, and part of me wants to become the president of the PTA.

    I had to get a good-conduct clearance recently, a certificate of good conduct. And I thought, Oh, God.

    cmar, thanks for posting. I’ve read a lot of intelligent posts from other fans, thanks everyone. I really wonder when all the drama will stop, people try to find fault in everything, no matter how it is played, therefore the best thing for the JPs is to live their lives. Fans really miss them when they are not in the news, but because of all the drama, sometimes it’s better when things are quiet. I wish them all the best in NO and I do hope reporters will try to focus on how they are trying to help NO and not so much on their private lives. Best wishes to the Jolie-Pitts.

    Brad and Angelina buy French Quarter mansion

    (just pass this if you have already read it)

    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.”

    Wow. Just wow….I LUV how he’s looking at her, and Angelina’s 3 qtr profile is probably the most beautiful ever of her….just stunning…Brad’s looking at her and thinking the same thing.

    …also, can I say — I hate old interviews, what matters is the here and now…if you want to do research and find out where AJ came from they’re swell, but she was a different person when she did this interview in 2004 than she is now. For one, it’s before she fell in love with Brad. So I wouldn’t ascribe her saying ‘she went through two marriages because she couldn’t be at peace..etc.’ any meaning to who she is now. She couldn’t be at peace because maybe she wasn’t TRULY in love, that’s just my opinion. I always thought there was a reason she was flying off at the drop of a hat, and adopted Maddox w/ a reluctant BBT – she had to sense BBT wasn’t all that into her new direction – I always thought she knew this subconsciously (or otherwise) and was kind of pushing things to come to an end.

    Plus, Esquire’s AJ quotes – as we’ve learned, it’s really NOT a good idea to take her words out of context and print as individual thoughts like that…I’m surprised Esq did that…people either easily misconstrue, or come away with a different idea than what she intended because of the way she tends to talk – when not shown in it’s complete flow and ebb.

    Just my opinion.

    How Aniston got her wealth Says:

    How Aniston got her wealth Says:

    January 18th, 2007 at 6:28 pm
    Let’s analyse Aniston’s money.

    1) She got 1M per episode for friends. It’s 12 episodes per year. Friends ran for 10 or 12 years. But this 1M per episode happened only in the last FEW seasons.. She did NOT get 1M per episode in the 1st few seasons. Therefore, this accumulation of 110M is not from TV friends.

    2) Next, look at her movies. Think how much she made. She is NOT big name star like Julia Roberts. Therefore this accumulation of 110M is not from movies making.

    3) Does she come from a rich family. Her parents were divorced. She was doing odds and ends job before becoming famous. Therefore, she did not get this 110M from family.

    4) You may say Aniston accumulated her wealth from movies and TV friends combined . But if you look at Courtney Cox , who is very similar to Aniston. She also get the same pay as Aniston. Courtney also did movies. But Courtney’s name is not in this Forbes list.

    5) Let’s look at Plan B from which Aniston was a partner.
    Plan B is successful. But Aniston is a partner IN NAME only.
    Plan B was also created to get movie roles for Aniston. Many actors/actress form a production company so that they can buy movie rights and star in the movie for themselves.

    But the success of Plan B was NEVER due to Aniston. The SUCCESS of any business ventures is due to the management, the direction of the CEO etc.

    If you remember Aniston in one of her interviews, she said she always called her girlfriends even for the TINIEST thing. Jen always needs the whole support system around her. She also held pity parties. Now think, is she CEO or producer material???? can she manage a company??

    Therefore it is reasonable to conclude that Jen got the bulk of her wealth from Plan B, that by being MARRIED to a man who has the foresight of creating and managing successfully of a company.

    FRiends aired 22 -25 episodes a year. The last season was 18 I think. I think they made 1 million per eppy for the last couple of seasons. I think their contract before that was 750,000. When it first started it likey more like 100,000 Don’t forget there were signing bonuses. Also, Friends has done quite well in the DVD department though I think sales in the future should not be that big anymore.
    So, I certainly would not discount the amount she made from Friends via salary, bonus , DVD’s and symdication. Granted I am sure some of that 110 million came from Brad’s hard work at plan B while they were married.

    I think it’s mostly from exactly that. She gets her money from all the repeats of Friends called residuals. Her ‘deal’ is different fron Cox. Sometimes Friends is on as many as three different channels at once per day. But Plan B figures in the equation just as much.

    opinion from a CPA Says:

    Regarding Plan B negotiation between Brad and Jen, the poster California said there was no bitter fight. I dont think the poster “California” has inside info on this . Usually only CPA and lawyers , plus Brad, and Jen are allowed in this negotiation.

    I am a CPA. Negotiations are always done face to face with lawyers and CPA present (sitting on the same table) . This is money. If Jen owned the shares which I believe she did, Brad had to pay her off. Jen would not give it to Brad free even she was a partner-in-name only. This is life. We are talking about lots of money. Think about it, if Jen doesnt give to charity, why would she give it free to Brad.

    I strongly believe Jen still receives future royalties on “the departed” and “Charlie & the Chololate factory”. These are movies done or started prior to their divorce.

    The negotiations was most likely on the movie rights which are sitting on the pipe line. In other words, those “not yet made” movies.

    Brad had to pay Jenn for leaving the company and for giving the right to use the name Plan B. The name Plan B has recognition which means money and Jen received money on forefeiting that right.

    Angelina’s St. John exposure pleases Kelly Gray

    Former executive and signature model was part of the team that designed the dress worn by the actress at the Golden Globes

    By HANG NGUYEN
    The Orange County Register

    It was a big moment for Kelly Gray when Angelina Jolie stepped onto the red carpet at the Golden Globes this week in a charcoal grey St. John gown.

    That’s because Gray, the former face of St. John, a role that Jolie now holds, was part of the team that designed the dress for the Oscar-winning actress.

    “It was one of my career highlights to see her in the dress on the red carpet,” Gray said by phone on Thursday.

    She added that Jolie “was a pleasure to work with and has an incredible sense of style.” Gray, a former executive at Irvine-based St. John and daughter of the founders, remains a consultant to the company. She left day-to-day duties at St. John in 2005.

    Agree. Here’s a link to a list of interviews dating back to 1998, and although I haven’t read all of them, I’ve read enough to see how she’s basically the same at the core “frankness, freedom loving, compassionate,” but you also see how bit by bit she began to grow and change, and it gives you the sense that it was in preparation for the life she has now; like all roads were leading her to Maddox, Brad, Zahara, and Shiloh. It feels that way regarding Brad too. It all seems so inevitable.

    I figure Brad paid her for Chocolate Factory and The Departed but guess what…

    she supposedly walked away with the 2 projects – The Senator’s Wife and Wanted – but can’t get the financing for these projects. Notice, they both have a 2007 release date – yet here we are 2007 – no pre-production or production. Just *announced*.

    I think what Brad did is right – give her monies for movies shot while they are together but since his company is bound to grow and make some serious $$$, he will reap back all those monies in just 2 movies or even one big hit.

    Alexanderina Says:

    I found this on 411 Mania.com and it is funny, I don’t usually post things like this here, but I wanted to share it with you guys, pay special attention to No. 1:

    THE TOP 5 CELEBRITIES WHO SHOULD SIT OUT 2007

    Trevor Snyder

    Honorable Mentions

    - Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan/Britney Spears: Well, duh, right? These three could easily take up all but two of the spots in my Top 5, but they’re all SO obvious that I decided it wasn’t even really worth including them anywhere but here. Besides, I don’t have much more to add about them beyond what my fellow writers will later in the column – suffice to say that when I saw the picture in the press of the three of them in a car together, I remember thinking “wow, the world might just better off if that car was to go flying off a cliff.” Now, while I do hate a lot of annoying celebrities, it’s very rare that I wish actual physical harm to anyone, so if I, even for a moment, was taking a moment for a pleasant fantasy about these three pulling a Thelma & Louise, that’s saying something.

    - Kevin Federline: What do I even really have to explain about this one? Let me just say that Kevin Federline is the worst kind of has-been loser celebrity – the kind that knows that everyone thinks he’s a joke, and so thinks he’ll be able to get in everyone’s good graces by playfully mocking his loser status. Well, no, Kevin, that’s not the case. I don’t want to see you play a ****** white rapper that everyone hates in any TV shows, commercials, or pro wresting events. I just don’t want to see you at all. Can you make that happen for me, please?

    - Dustin Diamond: It was somewhat amusing, in a sad way, when Diamond tried to raise the money to save his house from demolishment by hawking “I Saved Screech’s House” t-shirts online. But releasing a sex tape? A SEX TAPE? Dude, you’re Screech. You always will be Screech. When you die, your obituary will read “Screech is dead.” I know that sucks, but don’t take it out on us by trying to get us to watch what must be the most unappealing celebrity sex tape ever (and that’s saying something, since 1 Night in China is still floating around out there).

    5. Jack Black: This one almost pains me to say, because I really, really like Jack Black. But 2006 was not his greatest year. Sure, Nacho Libre was a hit, and was mildly entertaining, but it was nowhere near as good as a movie about Jack Black as a Mexican luchadore should have been, you know? Then, he delivered the long-awaited Tenacious D movie and sophomore album. The only problem? The album was nothing more than a hastily thrown together collection of the songs from the movie, not a real album like fans had been waiting for. As for the movie itself, it proved to be a few years too late, apparently – and it didn’t help that it was simply an average rehashing of much better material already done on their much better HBO series from a few years back. Not surprisingly, the movie tanked. Big time. By the time his romantic comedy with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz rolled around, it was looking like Black was getting by simply by coasting on how funny he was in 2004 and 2005. If Black wants to get back in everyone’s good graces, he and Kyle Gass should lock themselves in a recording studio for the next year and record a REAL follow-up album, and then Black should try to find another role like School of Rock, a heartwarming but funny comedy that plays to all his strengths.

    4. Jessica Simpson: Something tells me that Jessica Simpson spends a lot of her time nowadays thinking back to when her sister Ashlee was busted lip-synching on Saturday Night Live, fondly recalling when it was Ashlee, not her, that was the family’s biggest embarrassment. But, let’s face it, those days are long gone. It’s been quite some time since Ashlee has done anything to make an ass out of herself, actually, while Jessica spent pretty much all of 2006 doing just that. I bet when Jessica and Nick finally decided to call it quits, Jessica was assuming that most of America would side with her and she would be showered with sympathy. When it didn’t quite go that way, and Nick’s CD ended up outselling Jessica’s, she went into full-out panic mode – made only worse by the fact that Nick found a new woman and was out there looking genuinely happy. Soon, Jessica was making up a relationship with John Mayer in a desperate attempt to get some attention…a plan that might have worked, except for one tiny detail: she forgot to clear it with Mayer, who quickly denied it. When sources close to Mayer stated that he was annoyed at Jessica’s ruse, her clever ploy was up, and exposed to the public no less. This signaled the beginning of the end for Jessica, as she spent the rest of the year apparently sinking deeper and deeper into some sort of nervous breakdown, culminating in her now infamous botching of “9 to 5″ at the Kennedy Center Honors for Dolly Parton, where she managed to continuously flub the lines to the song (even with cue cards!) before finally stopping mid-song and apologizing, and then proceeded to simply freeze-up on stage for awhile before finally running off stage crying. The producers of the show eventually allowed Jessica to return to the stage and re-do her performance – after the audience had left, mind you – but after viewing the tape of her improved re-do, they decided it still wasn’t up to snuff and decided not to include it in the television version of the special. Ouch. Clearly, the one person who would benefit even more than us from Jessica Simpson taking 2007 off is Jessica Simpson herself.

    3. Gwen Stefani: This one is a tad different than my others, I suppose, since it has more to do with the fact that I simply don’t want to hear Stefani at all in 2007. Besides her increasingly ridiculous outfits, I certainly have nothing against seeing more of Stefani this year. But, as far as her music is concerned, she must be stopped. Ever since she broke away from No Doubt and went the solo route, her singles have been subsequently worse and worse. It’s as if she’s on some kind of personal mission to release the worst song ever or something. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, now she has competition in that category, as apparently Fergie has the very same idea. Stefani certainly takes the challenge very seriously, which is why she has risen up and delivered “Wind it Up,” which is not only the worst song I’ve ever heard, but might just be one of the worst things in human history, ever. I can only shudder to think how bad her next single will be – if your first single off your new album is “Wind it Up,” what horrors could you possibly follow it with? I’m sure I’ll soon be finding out, but I think I and everyone else would be a lot better off without that knowledge.

    2. Dane Cook: Hey, remember that time when Dane Cook told that funny story about flinging a cashew off of the tip of his *****? Or that time he suggested turning off all the lights in the building and having the audience play “who’s in my mouth?” Of course you do, because he did those jokes approximately 7000 times in 2006. Every single talk show appearance, award show gig, and episode of Tourgasm, there was Dane Cook cracking the exact same jokes we’d already heard time and time again. And the more and more he told him, the more glaringly obvious it became that beyond his manic energy, there’s really not much more to Cook’s routine than the same old, standard “have you ever noticed that” or “isn’t it funny how” observational humor that has pretty much been done to death over the years (women are more emotional than men? Get outta town – that’s hilarious!). Look, I’m not 100% against the guy – his first album was really good, and there were some pretty funny moments in his double-disc follow-up. But to see him suddenly become THE biggest star in stand-up is pretty frustrating, since there are a lot of more talented comedians out there right now? Like who? Well, off the top of my head – Lewis Black, Jim Gaffigan, Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, David Cross, Zach Galifinakis, Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Todd Barry, Brian Regan, Daniel Tosh…eh, you get the point. And what really bugs me about Cook is how his new “cool and hip” status has suddenly transcended him beyond just a stand-up, even though he’s clearly not ready for it. And Hollywood is guilty in this part of it, since they’ve played right into the “let’s jump onto the Cook bandwagon” mentality. Cook includes a bit about Superman t-shirts in his stand-up routine, and suddenly there he is on the red carpet at the Superman Returns premiere. He has jokes about Transformers in his routine, and he is rewarded with a role in Michael Bay’s Transformers. Really, that’s all it takes? Because if that’s the case, I can have a whole routine of Jenna Jameson jokes ready for you within a week. If Cook takes 2007 off, writes a brand-new act, and comes back with some strong material in 2008, maybe his fame will start to look just the tiniest bit more deserved. Maybe. But for God’s sake, enough with the SNL hosting!

    1. Jennifer Aniston: Everyone has had those friends and loved ones who go through a bad break-up, and then take forever to get over it, not letting anyone forget the “pain” they’re going through in the process. Jennifer Aniston is kinda like that friend for all of America. Seriously, what has it been now, two freakin’ years since Brad left her, and I’m still supposed to feel bad for her? No thanks. At a certain point you get up, dust yourself off, and move on with your life. And that doesn’t mean hooking up with Vince Vaughn, and then expecting me to feel bad for you again when that relationship doesn’t work either. Or to sympathize with you when Angelina says she’d like to get to talk to you someday, which for some reason prompted even more “oh, what pain and heartbreak Jennifer must be feeling” talk. GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE! I officially have absolutely no emotional investment in whether or not Jennifer finally finds herself a man – unless of course that man ends up being me, in which case I will gladly remove her from this list. Until then, however, how about you get out there and make a couple movies that actually don’t suck, and try to earn the ridiculous amount of press coverage you get.

    I love the dress. Everytime I see the pics I like it more and more.
    I´m sure that the next dress they design for her it will be a dream (may be for the Oscar…let´s hope).

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    It really is such a beautiful gown. I keep trying to figure out what makes it so appealing, there is just something about the way Angelina is wearing it and how the material flows. Did anyone else notice Rachel Weisz’s gown when she was awarding the BSA? It was a beautiful red gown that she looked wonderful in and I would give anything to see Angelina wear a red gown similar to that.

    I can tell you that they were black and open toed, anyway. I watched the red carpet videos closely because I was curious about the same thing, but only caught one quick flash of shoe.

    ABS always does a version of the dresses shown on the red carpet. ON ET

    Tonight on ET, we’re with ALLEN B. SCHWARTZ, owner of ABS and Allen B. fashions (www.absstyle.com), who uses the star styles as inspiration for his line of affordable dresses.

    Pure white was the hot trend on the red carpet Sunday night, with stars like “Desperate Housewives” TERI HATCHER and NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN, supermodel/mom HEIDI KLUM, “Ugly Betty” star/exec producer SALMA HAYEK and ‘Charlie’s Angels’ leader DREW BARRYMORE sporting an angelic hue.

    “The white was a nice statement,” Allen tells ET. “White is great 12 months a year. Right now white is a very important trend in the fashion business.”

    With the help of Allen’s amazing staff, likenesses of Drew’s beautiful dress can soon be yours for a fraction of the price!

    Present to support hubby BRAD PITT, ANGELINA JOLIE looked modern yet classic in a charcoal-grey sleeveless gown by ST. JOHN’s with gold jewels.

    Angelina’s dress was a very easy dress to wear,” says Allen. “It’s very figure-enhancing; it sat nicely on her — very flattering to anybody. Our version of the Angelina dress will retail for under $300.”

To which BOR replied “Hannity” and when asked him who would win in a fight…he named Sean again. The copy of BOR’s book that Stephen held..it had a 30% sticker on his face. Oh and he showed a horrifyingly photoshopped picture of BOR that I’m trying to bury deep within my mind. I love Stephen so… Now that’s he’s had BOR on his show he needs to go for the top…Angie :)

    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,
~curly

    How very true curly. But that’s why what the MJPP is doing is so important. They are trying to change a fundamental mindset about forests and wild animals.

    I grew up in south east asia and I can still remember a mind set that viewed forests as a sort of waste land. Timber for exploitation and clearing to grow cash crops like rubber, oil palm and other things. I don’t blame anyone for having that mindset then and I don’t blame anyone who is poor for seeing the wild animals as having no value unless you kill them and sell their body parts as medicines. MJPP is trying to find a way to give the poor people a way to make a living out of the preserving and conserving the forest, and the wild animals by making tourism attractive. If they succeed, then in time, the poaching and the timber stealing will stop. As consumers, we do our bit by refusing to purchase timber, animal parts which may be illegally obtained. As I’ve stated, a visit to Angkor Wat is ever on my list of places to go and it will happen in the next 3 years when my daughter is a little older. Who knows, I will also visit Samlaut district if they are serious about promoting tourism.

    I’m really very very glad that Brad and Angelina are continuing to take an active interest in Cambodia. There was a while there when I wondered because all the focus seemed to be on Africa, which is also very understandable as at least, Cambodia is in the healing and rebuilding phase of their development and not at war. Still Cambodia is in south east asia and I’ve been aware of the country’s suffering for more then 3 decades first during the cold war as a pawn between the Vietcong, China Russia and America and then later in the hands of the Khmer Rouge. I was watching a programme on Cambodia and an older American journalist described how Cambodia was carpet bombed during the Vietnam war era. Many of the land mines still buried in Cambodia are the result of this conflict.

    During the height of the mad cow disease, some wit suggested that instead of killing the cows thought to MIGHT have been affected by BSE, that they should be shipped to the Cambodia, allowed to wander and set off the land mines. I know that horrified a lot of animal lovers and understand why that would be horrific. But still, I can’t help thinking it wasn’t altogether a bad idea.

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.”

    Very true AG. Following Brad and Angelina has been an educational experience about tabloids but also about soft news and hard news (I read your later post. I’m working backwards on this thread). Hard news too deserves scrutiny. What ever I read nowadays, I understand that it may be a skewed truth. I don’t judge the situation based on one report alone.

The first thing he said to me when I asked about Angelina was that she was more beautiful in person than what we see on the screen. He also said she was very casual and looked very at home in the offices, not trying to get in the way or pushy or anything. He said its a very relaxed atmosphere over there and that Brad spoke to everyone in a friendly way, not real bossy or anything. Again, just to be clear, this is not something I have personally experienced, it is second-hand information. I hear bits and pieces here and there and I am glad to share if you all would like.

    ____________________

    First, welcome california.

    Second: As a fan, I’d love to hear the inside information and thank you for telling us how nice Brad and Angelina are to their colleagues. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me. I remember reading an article about how high-powered career women are looking for a “WIFE”. Basically a personal assistant to run her home, help take care of the children etc. The article goes on to write about how difficult it was to retain a good “Wife” because they get poached by other employers. a good “wife” is much in demand. When I see Holly with Angelina, I can’t help thinking that the relationship is a little bit as described in that article. Holly has been with Angelina for a long time and unless Holly is being paid so far out of the norm that it is unthinkable to leave, I’m sure Holly has had offers or can go work for anyone else she pleases. The fact that she has stayed this long with Angelina tells me, she is obviously well treated and she is more a friend then an employee to Angelina

    Third: Much as I love the insider information, I hope you won’t mind if I caution you a little. You may have signed a confidentiality agreement. Even if you haven’t, I take the view that an employee owes a duty of confidentiality to her employer. So, whilst information about how nice Brad and Angelina really are is probably OK to divulge, other types of information may not be. I’m sure you’ll exercise good judgement, but my caution would be, if in doubt, err on the side of caution and keep it confidential. Much as I would personally LOVE to hear as much as possible, it would not be good for you and your career. I’m pretty certain that the tablies and other celebrity gossips trawl the internet for information. It would be awful if somehow what you wrote gets spun

    Additionally,do not post anything about Angelina and Brad using the work computer unless your boss is aware that you occassionally chat in JJ’s??

    Sorry, but I’m on a roll right now. Is NO recovering? Does anyone think that this is a good time to buy property in NO. Hope its a great investment for the JP’s even though they probably didn’t buy that with capital gains in mind.

    When I visited NO, about 8 years ago, I was amazed at how run down and slatternly the French Quarter was. This despite the fact that it is a place of great historical significance to America. An equivalent place might be the Rocks in sydney, which is gorgeously preserved and is a great tourist attraction.

    After Katrina, it surprised me to hear some people talking about abandoning NO and rebuilding the city in a higher location. Whilst re-location of cities have happened before in the years past, my own thoughts were that in a nation as young as America, one shouldn’t just abandon a historical city just because of economics. It’s not as if America, has that many historical cities so that one more or less wouldn’t make any difference.

    Love their sense of humour calling their trust Mondo bongo. This couple are so together.

    Brad Pitt – Angelina Jolie return to Vietnam
    17:11′ 19/01/2007 (GMT+7)
    VietNamNet Bridge – The golden couple of Hollywood, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, has returned to Vietnam. Maybe Angelina wants to adopt a child from the Tam Binh Orphan Children Centre in HCM City, which the couple visited at the end of last year.

    Brangelina and their three children
    The couple arrived in HCM City on January 19. This is the second trip of Mr and Mrs Smith to Vietnam. The first one was made in 2006, when the couple unexpectedly arrived in HCM City from Cambodia and visited the Tam Binh Orphan Children Centre.

    Nguyen Cong Khanh, Deputy Head of the International Adoption Department under the Ministry of Justice, said that the department had not received an application for adopting from the Hollywood couple. Under Vietnam’s laws, if Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt want to sponsor a child, they will have to follow the set procedures for adopting, like any other foreigners. He said that it takes 3-4 months to complete the procedures, but in some cases, it takes two months only.

    “It is likely that the couple has just mentioned an adoption with the Tam Binh Centre through an organisation,” M Khanh said.

    Now, Mr and Mrs Smith have three children, including one from Cambodia and one from Ethiopia. Their natural daughter, Shiloh Nouvel, is now eight-months old. In November 2006, when visiting the Tam Binh Centre as tourists, the couple promised to come back soon and bring more gifts.

    On January 16, 2007, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attended the Gold Globe awards ceremony in Los Angeles in the US. The international press has reported that the star couple have moved to live in New Orleans, which was hit by Katrina hurricane in August 2005. The two stars have many times stated that they want to adopt many more children from many nations.

    Let’s see. 16 January evening was 17 January mornding in Vietnam. It takes at least 20 hours flying time on commercial flights which makes it 18 or 19 January. I guess they could have made it back to Vietnam unless there are photos of Brad in NO on 17 or 18 January.

    The book The Glass Castle is about JEANETTE WALLS not Jeannie Most! :lol: All I could remember was she did tv gossip/news and her name started with “J”. As I was going to sleep last night, it came to me! :roll: I HIGHLY recommend the book.

    Ugh…snowing…have to go to work now.

    Hope someone finds out if that Vietnam story is true. That would be sort of odd wouldn’t it? Of course, that could be why they bought a house and are talking about putting the kids in school? And, Vietnam would make sense from a view to Mad…someone who “looks like him”.

    Curious Kiss

    “EXTRA” correspondent Tanika Ray and Channel 11′s Emily Frances were in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton after Jennifer Hudson won her Golden Globe when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie walked by and Pitt kissed Ray, chiming, “Congratulations!” Had Pitt mistaken her for the “Dreamgirls” star? “I assumed he was congratulating me on getting one of the only interviews with [him and Angelina] on the red carpet,” said Ray, who is lighter-skinned and more petite than Hudson. “But honestly, I didn’t know why Brad Pitt kissed me on the cheek. It’s Brad Pitt kissing me on the cheek! Honey, I could care less why.” Pitt’s rep said he was on location and couldn’t be reached.

    Brad Pitt certainly did his bit as a best supporting actor nominee at the Golden Globes this week.

    He gave Angelina Jolie support, in the form of a helping hand – on several occasions, actually – at the awards event.

    The pair were holding hands when they walked on to the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton, but then Brad’s hand kept slipping into – for want of a better expression – the default position.

    The actor was nominated for his role in the powerful picture Babel, the movie that won the big prize for best film (drama). The exhilarating movie Dreamgirls won the best film (musical or comedy) award.

    Later, when the show was over, Brad and Angelina chatted to Cate Blanchett, who played Brad’s wife in Babel. Once the Hilton’s ballroom had emptied, the couple walked slowly to the exit and Brad’s hands strayed into derriere mode again.

    I would like to be able to say that I averted my gaze but, to be honest, I couldn’t.

    It was strangely touching to observe that this much gossiped-about couple seemed so contented.

    And at least Brad’s hands were warm when they walked out into the cold night air to make their way to Paramount Pictures’ after-party, a block away.

    This article from Variety says that Brad’s Plan B will be one the producers of Johnny Depp’s new film. The film sounds amazing and also sounds like to me a future award nomination for Johnny! Thanks to intothegrinder from simply.brad

    Posted: Thurs., Jan. 18, 2007, 8:00pm PTNair, Depp journey to India film
    Director hitched to ‘Shantaram’
    By PAMELA MCCLINTOCK
    Depp

    Mira Nair will direct big-budget Johnny Depp starrer “Shantaram” for Warner Bros. Pictures, with Graham King’s Initial Entertainment Group and Depp’s Infinitum Nihil producing.
    Brad Pitt’s Plan B is a producer as well.

    Nair’s arrival means the project –which may be Depp’s next starring vehicle after “Sweeney Todd” — is back on track after helmer Peter Weir dropped out last summer. Production is likely to begin as soon as this fall, with a possible 2008 release.

    Nair will direct from a script by Eric Roth, who is adapting Gregory David Roberts’ tome of the same name. Novel is based partly on the author’s own adventures, according to publisher St. Martin’s Press.

    In “Shantaram,” an Australian heroin addict escapes from a maximum-security prison and reinvents himself as a doctor treating the destitute in the slums of Bombay. His drive to procure medicine leads him into counterfeiting, gun-running and smuggling.

    King said Nair’s “lush visual style’ lends an “authentic and vital eye” to the story.

    Nair next will be in theaters March 9 with Fox Searchlight’s “The Namesake,” based on the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri. Pic is her first since Reese Witherspoon starrer “Vanity Fair,” released in 2004.

    Most of her films have been about her native India, including her debut feature “Salaam Bombay!” and “Monsoon Wedding.” Other credits include “Hysterical Blindness.”

    Initial Entertainment and Infinitum are producing through their deal with Warners (Infinitum is an Initial company). Projects in the works include “A Long Way Down,” based on Nick Hornby’s novel, which scribe D.V. DeVincentis is adapting, and “Bomb,” based on the book by Dr. Mahdi Obeidi, Saddam Hussein’s top nuclear weapons scientist, and American journo Kurt Pitzer.

    Infinitum and Initial also are developing “Happy Days,” based on the novel by Laurent Graff. Terry Zwigoff is attached to direct from a script he will co-write with Jerry Stahl.

    Seacrest Simpers: “Angelina was mean to me!”
    Doing absolutely his best to remain relevant and in the news, Ryan Seacrest lashed out at Angelina Jolie on his L.A.-based radio show Wednesday morning for not fawning all over him during their interview prior to the Golden Globes on Monday night.

    Per Whiny McWhinerson:

    “I asked her four questions and she didn’t even answer me…I literally stood there and tried to ask a couple of questions.”

    Well, which is it? Did you ask her four questions or “a couple?” And I guess he was going by the interview that was playing in his head, because tapes of the interview clearly show Angie answering Seacrest—obviously just not to his satisfaction. Then, again, how is one supposed to get giddy over such in-depth questions as “what did you have for breakfast this morning?”

    Clearly thinking he can straddle both sides of the publicity fence, the American Idol host was quick to point out that “Brad was fantastic.” Yeah, I’m sure he’s happy with you, too, given the way you’re flapping your piehole about how mean his girlfriend was to you. I’m sure that put you back in his good books.

    Seacrest’s radio co-host, Ellen K, came to Jolie’s defense, saying:

    “Well, she has said that she finds all these award shows a waste of time and money.”

    To which the big baby snapped:

    “Well then, don’t go…Don’t do. Don’t go support your man. Do go.”

    And had that happened I’m sure today’s broadcast would have been about the rampant rumors of a breakup.

    I love the way after Tim Gunn raves about AJ’s dress and style, Matt matter of factly says, “Now is it because she’s so beautiful or because she has great taste?” Tim then says, she’s got great taste and style. :-) Just the way Matt said “so beautiful” – it was said like it’s a given that she’s the modern day Helen of Troy or Nefertiti or something. :-)

    IA. They want a large family and she said they didnt want to still be having children ten years from now. They want to have this large family and just raise their children. In cases like that the children are going to have to be close in age for that to be accomplished. That is probably why she mentioned just wanting to be a housewife for a while. Kate C. married to Steven Speilburg had two babies at one tme, one adopted, one biologial, that were only a couple of months apart in age.

    I’m thinking they will adopt one more and have one more, that would make 5.

    Brad actually likes to place his hand on the bum as seen in so many pictures. That’s where his hands feel most comfortable….I guess he’s an ass man. There are pictures too of this gesture with Jen ie the Ocean’s Twelve premeire.
    Some of you just like to over analyze and create trival comparisons. I kind of understand that as their fans we detaste her but like Angie says it doesn’t help any of them no matter who you support to exploit it. Am very positive that Brad and Angie being the people they are don’t harbor any ill-will towards her. I’m hoping they are can all meet and clear the air between them….Brad and Angie are bigger than all this trival stuff and do come across as very genuine and open.
    I suggest we all enjoy their happiness and growing contributions instead of being stuck with the past.

    Hello to all here in BAMZSville!

    I have only been able to lurk on and off lately and by the time I get through one thread you guys are already working on 5oo+ on a new one. Anyway, I have missed conversing with you all.

    AG – Thank you so much for the article. I speak on this all the time. This especially comes in to play on political issues and it is so frustrating. It is one of the reasons that I don’t often watch TV anymore. I grew up with the old style of watching the news when it was a family affair and the news anchors were seemingly devoid of emotion. The “entertaining” banter was left to the softcore news shows while evening news hour was no nonsense and more unbiased. those were the good ole days. Now if you truly want to be informed you have to dig and read and just research but I am learning that more and more that the majority wants everything handed to them and then they run with one side. As a debate team member back in school we were always challenged to debate for what you did not agree with. Not to change your opinion on the topic but to help and give your on opinion more depth. (Think– “keep your friends close, but your enemies closer”) Uh oh, I have completely gone way off topic! ;)

    Medi — I think I may have missed all surrounding your situation due to skimming but just the same I do wish you well and pray for a speedy recovery.

    Guli, I noticed your moniker in more than a few post. I’M GLAD.

    CLINIQUA, despite our previous difference you never disappoint. When I got to your post about the RS thing I must say that you had me on fire like a Black Panther rally! lol I went to the US mag sight to post your well put together post but I decided that they just were not worth it. You see I have been a fan of AJ since Gia and I never had a site like this to disprove all the STUFF that some news outlets regaled us with and it never made my fan status waver. I would admit to reading the tabloids about her and still saying in my mind “That’s my girl!” The hurtful things they sprouted didn’t penetrate my admiration for this young lady because sometimes there is something about a person that you can pick up on and tell that their heart and actions are genuine.

    Ojpf — What’s been going on? Your diplomacy is admirable.

    Mrs. Lenny — Maintain sweetie. Please! I look for your post filled with so much reason. Thank you!

    Hello MF, O2, PT. I am still learning names so if I did not shout you out don’t worry you are still just as important. Let me get back to catching up because as you can see I am only on #695.

    Hello BAMZSters, how are you?.

    Why are we still talking about Ryan?….Let´s change the subject…

    As lookwhaticando said, JJ I think we need a new thread ASAP.
    ========================================

    Why?

    You people have got to stop with this new thread crap. You’ll get a new thread when there’s new news or pics. Everytime Jared puts up a new thread it gets picked up by all the other blogs and that’s when the overexposure sets in. Just enjoy the PEACEFULNESS of this thread. When the thread is off the front page the haters dissipate. enjoy it.

    I’m a fan of Brad and Angie but why do we always have to compare Brad’s r/ship with Angie with that of Jen.

    Brad actually likes to place his hand on the bum as seen in so many pictures. That’s where his hands feel most comfortable….I guess he’s an ass man. There are pictures too of this gesture with Jen ie the Ocean’s Twelve premeire.
    =====================================

    I agree with your general point about comparing, but just wanted to clarify that X wasn’t at the Ocean’s Twelve premiere. Perhaps you meant the Troy premiere?

Sine blogs are quick to stal from JJ and too lazy to do their own research, the news will continue to show Brad as an up & coming major play as a producer.

Please let us learn how to do things in positive way.
    Although I know that some article are posted by the hater when the fan see it don’t comment just look at it as if it those not exist, don’t comment on it by doing that they will stop.

    First, I find it interesting and obviously hypocritical that BAMZS fans spout off about not wanting any “negativity” here yet spew the most negative, nasty hate speech when someone doesn’t agree with their opinion. Cliniqua has spewed the most hateful venom – she is truly a nasty negative human being. Cliniqua is a vicious nasty hateful name caller and tells posters who disagree that they are probably ******** their mother or something to that effect (it was MUCH nastier language). This hypocrisy demonstrates that you are not in any, shape, or form positive people. Other posters disagree with you and you call THEM negative? It’s ridiculous. It’s not negative, it’s a different opinion – just as you then offer your very nasty, hateful opinions about them disagreeing with you. GET IT?
    THIS is TRUE: Look here is the deal. Interviewers ask questions. Stars who step in front of the interviewer standing there with a microphone are usually bright enough to know questions are going to be asked. Why is Ryan the bad guy? She walked up there, he didn’t go chasing her down the red carpet. Angelina didn’t have to step up on the podium. SHE WENT TO HIM – HE DIDN’T GO TO HER. Get it? The debate that she was allowing Pitt the limelight, BULL, then she wouldn’t have stepped up on the podium. It’s not rocket science. She should have stayed down on the red carpet by herself and let Brad do the interview alone if she didn’t want to steal his spotlight, which she very well knew she was doing. In addition, isn’t it the movies that provide them with the cars, houses, nannies, private jets…etc…I’m sure she realizes she’s a celebrity and gets rich off of movie-making and, um, the GG’s is celebrating that movie-making you know the hand that feeds her…

    Also, 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.”

    This is EXTREMELY hypocritical. So I suppose that’s whay you identify with her so much – one hypocrite to another. Saying one thing that sounds good to the public then actually LIVING and acting in another manner. What is a “waste of money”? The award shows are a waste of money? Riiight. Hypocrite. I’d suspect the 5 homes, the nannies, the chefs, the bills that go with those 5 homes (or however many) the private jets, the gas guzzling SUV’s they drive, the $6000 a night hotels all over the world, the cloths, the real estate they buy and on and on… Aren’t those things a WASTE of money? Again, it’s not the point that they live in access – fine! Great! But don’t sit there and say, oh award shows are a waste of money, yet I’m going back to my $6000 a night hotel..It’s the same hypocrisy when she talks about “Never being with a married man etc, I could’nt look at myself in the morning….” So righteous with her empty words, yet she did it with Laura Dern and Brad Pitt. Again, it’s not the point that she went after taken men (which of course speaks volumes but not my point) it’s the FACT that she did it and then turns around and spouts off about how she could and would NEVER do such a thing, when she did.

I think it is refreshing when Ryan or others ask other things. It breaks the monotony. Maybe Ryan asked questions that didn’t fall into her talking points. I think she may have been caught off guard as she memorizes her talking points when she’s plugging something.

    and I also think Brad and Angelina will also be starting on BIO Baby #5 VERY soon after an adoption (or she could be pregnant right now, according to all those rumors, lol), just based on the remark AJ made on ‘wanting to raise their kids while young.’

    IA. They want a large family and she said they didnt want to still be having children ten years from now. They want to have this large family and just raise their children. In cases like that the children are going to have to be close in age for that to be accomplished. That is probably why she mentioned just wanting to be a housewife for a while. Kate C. married to Steven Speilburg had two babies at one tme, one adopted, one biologial, that were only a couple of months apart in age.

    I’m thinking they will adopt one more and have one more, that would make 5.
    ———————-

    I agree Peaches.

    I think so too, she’ll be pregnant sometime this year I bet..if she isn’t already. I also think she’ll sneak another bio in (or 2), when she’s like, Maniston’s age. Muahaha. heh.

    You just proved why Ryan Seacrest is a liar. Angelina’s last awards show was three years ago at the Oscars where she was a presenter. She did not make a spectacle of herself. BBT has to share in on the spectacle as he is one all unto himself. But he was her husband. The past is the past. Why can’t you get that?

    TGS was HER film, her turn to answer questions. BABEL was HIS film, and he was all but ignored and the mike was shoved in her face. Whe she tried to deflect the questions, Ryan was too ignorant to buy a clue. That is all on him, She wasn’t the only one to ignore his questions, why does he dwell on her? He knows people have the right to ignore his questions, especially when they’re personal, or involving a 3rd party. You’re just as clueless as he is, get lost!

    There’s an interesting poll on the website for the entertainment newspaper Variety. It’s “Who do you think will win an Academy Award.” (Not who do you want to win) The choices for Best Picture include Babel and The Good Shepherd. Angie is a choice for Best Supporting Actress but, this is the interesting part, Brad isn’t a choice for either Best Supporting or Best Actor. There is an option to write names in, so if anyone felt that Brad was going to win they could still say so. But there are a lot of names there and one would think that he’d be there because he was nominated for a Golden Globe. Variety is well read and in tune with what’s happening within the movie industry, so, putting all of that together with the lack of a SAG nomination for Brad, it looks like we might not be seeing him on the podium this year. I’m sure, no matter what, we’ll see them on the Red Carpet, anyway, for Babel, The Good Shepherd and The Departed. I just want to see both Brad and Angie win, but I guess I’m being too greedy.

    This Ryan guy got what he wanted, he asked stupid questions and pissed off Angie, now it has been 5 days everybody has still talking about him, writing comments concerning his interview. There is NO BAD PR, right?

    I never spout off at anyone unprovoked, and if I call someone a mofo (what you’re alluding to I guess) they deserve it — like you do, mofo.

    Also, Angelina never made any comment about award shows being ‘a waste of time and money.’ ‘Lyin’ Pee Crust’ and his sidekick on the radio made that crap up.

    Angelina was polite and reserved, and hopeful that ‘Lyin Pee Crust’ would focus on Brad, dissappointingly, and as he NOW dumbly admits, Angelina ticked him off, shook him off his game, and so he was obsessed with getting her to answer him at all cost, even to the point of wasting precious time with Brad, and trying to force Angelina to answer him by ‘sticking the mic in her face and letting it sit!’ Meanwhile Brad, the nominee of critically acclaimed important film, is standing patiently by waiting for ‘Pee Crust’ to stop obsessing over his woman, and maybe ask him a question about..oh, you know..BEING NOMINATED…and ummmm….THE FILM, before he turns gray. THAT is outrageous.
    ‘Pee Crust’ has been outed, he’s displayed his ugly b*tchy cattiness for all the world to see.

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

    Thank you so much for answering. I remember someone posted about it before, but completely forgot about it. Good for Penelope Cruz. Just because you work for a tv network covering a movie award show, it doesn’t mean you can poke in an actor’s private life, with tabloid speculations. These are big A-list movie stars, not the like of tv starlettes. He is getting complacent. And just because the actors appear in movies, doesn’t mean they have to oblige you with every details of their private life.
    As for who deserves this year’s BA award, I saw both movies, and I think the role PC played is much more difficult and diverse than HM’s role. And I hope they don’t give the award to Meryl Streep, even though she is an indisputably talented actress. But not this year, because she was less in the movie than Anne Hathaway, and there was not much range to the character. Penelope Cruz deserves to win this year.

I could also see Angelina doing what Annette Benning has done. She made a couple of films here & there while getting pregnant & raising a family with Warren Beatty and being involved in charity.

    from Lainey Says:

    on to the smut and the editorial I promised on the Page Six blind item. Many, many, many of you have written to follow up, sorry for the delay – travel, awards, trying to stay warm in Park City. Still, the extra few days gave me more time to get some more information…recap below.

    First a refresher on the Page Six Blind Item – a humanitarian who hooked up with a rock star friend in LA 5 months ago and got strung out on heroin. At the time, when only the item came out, I wrote that it sounded to me to be more Pam Anderson than Angelina Jolie.

    Humanitarian: Pam is AIDs spokesperson for MAC Cosmetics, hardcore party rumours for years, contracted Hep C, commonly infected through needles, a long list of rock star connections…and of course, you have to admit, the girl looks bunk-f*ckin’ ROUGH.

    However, in a subsequent column about Marilyn Manson two days later, screwed up in his own right, there was a mention of Marilyn’s friendship with Angelina, followed by the online dissemination of photos of a painting he created of her with nails popping out of her arm, which naturally led many to conclude that the heroin-using humanitarian is none other than Mrs Pitt herself, especially since she’s so thin and walks around pouting and reminding you of that Deep, Dark, Harrowing Past.

    First of all, I have no idea if that is indeed the answer behind their mystery. It’s their blind item, not mine. I’m not sure how they go about giving clues and I’m not sure whether or not they deliberately drop red herrings to divert from the real culprit. All I can tell you is what is told to me about Angelina’s behaviour and the observation coming from my own sources.

    Is she weird? Yes. Is she demanding? Yes. Can she be a *****? Hell yes. Has she had a troubled past? Absolutely. Did she make out with her brother? Uh huh. Did she use heroin in the past? Rumoured to, yes. Was she headed for self destruction not too long ago, pre-Maddox? Obvious and admittedly so.

    But seriously y’all. The Pitts might be courting the media and they might do it very well but have you ever for a second characterised Angelina Jolie as America’s Goth Sweetheart and Favourite Homemaker?

    Please.

    The girl is a badass. She looks better with blood dripping from her lips and her neck than she does in a bikini sunbathing in Malibu. Angelina Jolie was Lindsay Lohan BEFORE Lindsay Lohan – a dysfunctional family, a dangerous and wild past, and the anti-everything that glossy Hollywood usually peddles.

    In recent years however, since Maddox, since ditching BBT, since becoming involved with the United Nations, Angelina Jolie has said that she’s become a new person – the kind of person who no longer hurts herself, Earth Mother and Mother Theresa, saving the world one adoption at a time, criticising Madonna, pissing off the MiniVan Majority, playing perfect wife to Brad Pitt, shunning Hollywood and the luxe life.

    According to the anti-Angelina movement however, the façade is starting to crack. According to some, Angelina is too f&cked up to be this mentally stable and too strong willed to be tied down and she buys babies and she hates The Chosen One and is going to ruin her baby’s life and now…courtesy of Page Six, she’s shooting up.

    Because heroin is apparently so benign one can use it casually without fear of addiction. Because she supposedly used to be an addict and she fell off the wagon and when you fall off the wagon after a serious addiction, it is actually possible to have the self control to avoid the feast or famine syndrome, only using occasionally without affecting your work life and family life and self destructing all over again. Because that’s how addiction works? Because that’s how harmless heroin can be?

    Okay. Sure. Why not?

    But take this for what it’s worth – even though she’s absolutely freaky and manipulative and calculating and bitchy, even though she’s all those things, I absolutely agree – according to my sources, Angelina Jolie is not using heroin.

    Angelina Jolie is a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN. Representatives of the UN are expected to go through medical procedures like immunisation and drug testing before and after missions on a regular basis. As you know, a Goodwill Ambassador is responsible for drawing attention to important issues advocated by the UN, Angelina’s star has certainly helped the organisation in the few years she’s been involved. And of course the UN is happy with the relationship, so long as her celebrity and her actions do not jeopardise the message and the work.

    Which is why she, like all employees and representatives of the UN, is tested and tested often. Which is why I hear she has never been observed to be engaging in behaviour that would compromise the organisation. Which is why she hasn’t yet been fired. Which is why there hasn’t been a carefully worded statement announcing her intention to step back from her duties because she needs more time to care for her children.

    If that were to happen, perhaps the suspicions might be founded.

    Right now however I’m told she passes each drug test with flying colours. But then again, you are welcome to draw your own conclusions about cleverly avoiding detection. Conspiracy, coincidence, conspiracy, coincidence.

    As for her body and her behaviour at the Golden Globes: does she exhibit signs of a junkie? Is she bored with Brad? Was she fidgety? Did she hate being there? Is she a smug ass ***** who can’t be bothered to speak to people?

    I spoke with the always delightful Nelson Branco who had the privilege of being inside the ballroom that night, seated behind Kyra Sedgwick. Nelson is a writer for TV Guide and In Touch, a ‘Mo of course, and therefore as catty as they come and deliciously so, with the trademark gay man’s eye for detail and observation and a nose for the dirtiest smut ever, especially the kind barely noticeable to some, but absolutely 100% obvious to a Queen.

    According to Nelson, the Pitts were lovely, Angelina did not leave the table once, she is extremely calm, she was engaged and chatty with her tablemates, she and Brad sipped water all night, they sat close together, and she is thin but not disgustingly so.

    Nelson also said that Matthew Perry was nuzzling the neck and kissing the shoulder of his co-star Sarah Paulson who has had a longterm lesbian relationship with Cherry Jones for years…weird, non? Sorry, I digress. But I’m kind of bored now. Editorial over.

    Regarding the Oscars….Babel being the film that it is – so many stories which all interconnect, it would make more sense for it be nominated as a film ie best picture instead of a picking one of the actors for best something.
    If there is an award for best ensemble, then definately Babel should be listed. The beauty of it was the cast all playing different parts but it all beautifully comes together portraying an underlying emotion from all the actors/actresses.

    Look, A) there was nothing,, absolutly Nothing wrong with Angie’s behaivor at the GG’s. She carried herself just as most celebs do at such events. B) What IF she did snub RS, So Freaking what, The tabs has done nothing but rake her though the mud time and time again, If she choose not to acknowlege RS or any other “reporter” hats off to her. why should she smile in their faces as if they have not been treating her like crab from the beginning of her acting career. He should be glad she did not knock his head off, for shoveing that mike up in her face so very rudely like he did.

    Other stars are allowed to say no comment, or ignore questions when they feel the question in inappropriate, and so can she. When X does not answer questions, or her cast mate had to answer for her, it was OH, poor Jen, why are they asking her personnal questions, She showed class by not answering. Pullllease, I for one am very proud of how she handled herself on the carpet. She acting just like she always does, marching to her own drum, and not a hollywood sheep, pining for attention.

    There’s an interesting poll on the website for the entertainment newspaper Variety. It’s “Who do you think will win an Academy Award.” (Not who do you want to win) The choices for Best Picture include Babel and The Good Shepherd. Angie is a choice for Best Supporting Actress but, this is the interesting part, Brad isn’t a choice for either Best Supporting or Best Actor. There is an option to write names in, so if anyone felt that Brad was going to win they could still say so. But there are a lot of names there and one would think that he’d be there because he was nominated for a Golden Globe. Variety is well read and in tune with what’s happening within the movie industry, so, putting all of that together with the lack of a SAG nomination for Brad, it looks like we might not be seeing him on the podium this year. I’m sure, no matter what, we’ll see them on the Red Carpet, anyway, for Babel, The Good Shepherd and The Departed. I just want to see both Brad and Angie win, but I guess I’m being too greedy.

    YES, as MrsR said. WRITE BRAD IN!! This is outrageous! They should DEFINITELY have him there, it HAS to be the worst kind of oversight, THAT or there’s an UNDERCOVER ‘Faniston’ behind the ‘webmaster’ of that site who posted the poll, and they left him out deliberately!

    Please ATTN – all of you who are FOR online polls. Please go and do this VERY IMPORTANT one and ‘WRITE BRAD IN’ — there’s an option for you to do that. HOW TO: You select ‘OTHER’ and in the space below type BRAD PITT.

    Thank you for posting that and it is very interesting. Is there really a chance Brad won’t get a BSA nomination for an oscar? I haven’t seen Dreamgirls yet but I have no doubt Eddie Murphy was great in it and fully deserved his golden globe. But I find it hard to believe that there was any more moving and emotional part than the one Brad played in Babel, and surely he will get a nomination.

    paris27,

    Grow up.

    You are completely entitled to your opinion, but it is just that, opinion, not fact and you can’t argue opinion. Don’t be upset that someone else knows how to defend their opinion more vehemently than you. You sound childish. This is about celebrity, none of us know what was going through Angelina’s mind at the GG and from the way it looked to me, she has having a good time with her man. If you want to see it differently, okay, but don’t expect people to agree.

    She didn’t want to talk to Ryan Seacrest because tabloid news shows like E! tend to misconstrue a person’s words and at no point, AT NO POINT, did Angelina during this evening state she didn’t want to be there. You, being so led by tabloid journalism listened to the comment made by Debbie Matenapolous who implied that she didn’t want to be there because she’d rather be in Africa or something. An “astute” assessment made by an airhead, fired from a show for being a dingbat. Yeah, I’m going to listen to her.

    The fact that you need to debate all this is sad. Keep your damn opinion. Stop trying to push it on people who don’t agree with you. I saw the footage, she looked fine. Had she had not of step up to the podium people would have went ape **** then, wondering why she was snubbing interviewers. She was polite and answered as she should have. Ryan Seacrest asked silly questions when he should have focused on Babel and, hell even what they were wearing. He was trying to pry and she wasn’t having it.

    One of the entertaintment guy was saying this morning that TGS was not around for the GG consideration, but it has pick up momemtum for the Oscars, since most of the Academy members are now have heard of the movie or seent it. So there is a possibility for TGS to be considered in the ballot. He also thinks AJ might pick up the supporting role since Helen M. can not get 2 nominations for the Oscar. So there will be an empty slot for the Supporting role for the actress. ( fingers and toes cross all over the worlds until tuesday morning next week people)

    Would that be something, both of them got Oscars nominations, a sure thing for them to be at the Oscar and possible presenters as well…..picture both of them walking across the stage toward the podium, smiling and may be a light kiss on the lips before starting or the look of love, ok I take anything here………I know that I’m dreaming BIG here…it could happend?….life is full of posibility, right ladies?. ;)

All this “ish” that’s going on with the haters, seacrust, tabloids is called dust. It’s mighty dusty out there! LOL!!!! Someone needs to clean out all that dust. Brad & Angie are living their lives but people can’t seem to stand that. How dare they have a fabulous life? They each are supestars on their own with their own legacies and idntities but the media want to package them as a “brand”. I still can’t get over that silly woman on Access Hollywood asking Brad if they knew that they were Hollywood royalty. The look on his face had me LMAO! He’s a survivor of being a brand called The Golden Couple. That nonsense was not for he and Angie. Brad once said in an interview regarding being part of The Golden Couple was because the media wanted someone else to fill the slot that Nicole & Tom left empty. Now the media wants to fill The Golden Couple’s slot but no one wants to play. Hence all the dust.

    That Variety poll is just that, a poll. The cholices offered gives a hint that they are not in sync with the Academy, GG’s BAFTA, SAG, etc…. TGS should not be on there for Best Picture. This poll has no influence on Academy voters. They wil announce the nomnations on Tuesday so the votes are already in. That is very weird that Angelina is on there when she is barely eligible and Brad isn’t, but has been nominated and won awards for Babel. Shouldn’t the poll be “who will be nominated?” and not who will win?

Usually she writes short and concise, sometimes snarky but still brief but here in this editorial, I felt she emphasized the “courting the media” that she says Brad and Angelina do (as if they still need to court the media — heck, it’s the media that courts them, the media that is p*ssing in their pants to interview them and get a soundbite), and the dark past that Angelina had.

    And I guess I hated the “making out with her brother” bullsh*t. Are we not over that yet? Can she not get her point across with saying that that sh*t was true?
