    I HAVE TO SAY I’M A LITTLE SAD YOU ADDED THAT SILLY ARTICLE TO THIS THREAD.

  • Mediterranean

    He will definitely look much better when he reaches this age!

    Jared:

    Thanks for the new thread but I wish you hadn’t dignified that thrashy NYT article by tacking it on here. That will give it more legs and more unwarranted exposure.

    Why don’t we just focus on the upcoming Oscar nominees announcement about an hour away?

  • May

    Someone, please give us an update on the Oscar nominations?

  • http://captdoloresaol.com captd

    Where is Angelinas PR people. And I agree if Brad is so much inlove and wants to be a real man then why does he not speak out and support Angie. He never seems to get asked the hard questions and rarely talks about his love for Angie or his support for her. I know they would prefer to ignore this bad press but isn’t it betterto face it head on? I will always love Angoe for being herself and I have a big ? about Brad.

  • smiled2

    Yes, I read this article earlier..It made me sad too. I cant see why they always have too write negative things about Angie. This is the NY times ! It is something that she reads.I just dont know why is always the target. Give Angie a break for god sakes!!!

    I just feel so sorry for her. She’s allready unconfortable with all the negative press since she hooked up with Brad. It did’nt bother her so much before when she was younger, but now…with her having kids..

  • lynnc

    I’m a fan of brad and angelina, I enjoy the fact that they love and respect each other and their family. Live and let live. P.S. I hope brad gets nominated for his performance in Babel!! GO BRAD GO BRAD!!!!!

  • http://justjared.com Hunter

    Good morning Brad, Angie and to all, fans or not.
    Let there be peace on this new thread.
    Thanks JJ.

  • wachikuni

    oscar noms…can’t wait and some ppl are just jealous of their livfe and love. Leave them alone and just like angie said every parent raises their kids according to the situation they have hoping to do their best

  • naise

    thanks jj for the new thread!

    All the those negative writeups aboutl brad and aj will make thier relationship stronger. AJ and BP cannot please everyone and no matter what i will always love and pray them to have a peaceful life…

  • Amaya

    Wow, I’m on the first page! :) His story about strippers reminded me of ocean’s 11 where he talks to one and when he asks how her mom is doing. The stripper tells him that she’s about to go on stage so he can see for himself. lol

  • rez

    i am disapointed with the aj bashing as they used us weekly as a source, what a joke, i mean i know celebs are meant to get a little bad and good media coverage but the crap angelina jolie has to put up with is just way over the top, i don’t think anyone gets it as bad as she does

  • http://justjared.com Hunter

    We should discuss the Oscar nomination for this thread and be positive.
    If you can not let go what was discussed on the last thread, then you must have an agenda. I am sure the real fans can unmasked you.

    Good Morning BAMZS fans! Good thoughts and best wishes for Brad and Babel!!
    Thanks for the new thread JJ.

  • Mediterranean

    Blob! When someone becomes a mother for the first and second time with the babies already happen to be 5 and 6 months old, you consider the very newly born, blob!

    I was looking at my daughter’s face after she was just born and spending hours just to see that she opens her eyes even. I was expecting her to give me a reaction for the things she gave naturally after 4 months. The people who were around me were telling me to be patient. Angie became a mother for the first and second time in her life for the babies already were 5 and 6 months old. If I knew the word of blob, I would have used it for my precious one.

    The dress, OK frankly if you put that dress on someonelse (guess who???:)) it could have been a disaster!!!! The colour was very different, the style was demanding. If the beauty of Angie was not in that dress, I would not even look at it at all.

    Every woman can look in very chic dress with make-up and hair-do. It’s so easy and predictable.

    For the interview, firstly the interview knew very well that Angie would get annoyed by those unnecessary questions and he knew that the Jolie-Pitts have been upset with E! itself for sometime. He pushed the right button and he got the answer and the reaction he deserved.

    For the comments after all these are so normal. If you look for a mistake, you surely find at least one! Nobody is perfect. It also depends whom you are comparing Angie to. If you compare Angie to Mother Theresa, of course she would not look like a saint beside her.

    But I look someone and I do appreciate, value, love, admire, respect our dear Angie.

    Angie is not even claiming that she is the person on this earth! The tabloids write this way or that way. Angie does her own things and satisfied with it. The tabloids have to write the negative things about the famous and intesting one. This way that tabloid and THE WRITERs of NYT will be different and draw an attention of everybody. There is no PR is a bad PR!

    If this writer wrote that he or she doesn’t like Angie, what does this comment change anything about Angie in my mind? NOTHING!

    Every single person on this world is not supposed to like, love the Jolie-Pitts. They can’t respect them because the real respect starts with respecting yourself. They don’t even respect themselves.

    I talked to much for an unnecessary subject. It’s raining in Nice, France, little boring.

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared for the new thread. However, the NYT link was so unnecessary. Sometimes it is good to be a supporter even in the world of negative blogging. AJ is a good person and a good humanitarian. She will rise above all the negative BS as she always does. She does not live her life by people’s perception of her. It is disturbing when so-called reputable media has to rely on tabloid gossip and innuendos to write an article. AJ has been very open and candid about her past and mistakes she has made in life. She has grown into a woman who cares about issues and problems throughout the world. It is so easy to write snarky and false stories behind a desk. The true measure of a human being is one that has been in the field and has seen first hand the human suffering in the world. I wish AJ all the best. You are an inspiration to many. Best wishes to Babel and the Departed during Oscar Nominations.

  • sapphire

    I saw E!, Access and Extra interviews with Brad and Angelina. And there was a difference between E! and the other two with respect to the atmosphere. But I conclude that though angie don’t read or listen to gossip on her, “her people” do.

    Obviously she is aware of the biasness of E! as it relates to her and Brad relationship.

    Personally I would’ve snob them too, with regards to the other comments..I tyhink they are doing the right thing.

  • CLINIQUA

    I agree wholeheartedly with letting it go.

    Still, though I’m grateful for the new thread Jared…

    …..once again I have to wonder why the NYT column by Caryn James, discussed ad infinitum in the last thread, as well as referenced in many day-long protest e-mails by bamzs fans to the NYT yesterday, along with it being and cut & paste posted and re-posted by haters….

    ….is now LINKED here?

    It’s OLD NEWS. The JJ bamzs fans are DONE with this Jared. We’ve moved on. Please REMOVE THE Caryn James LINK. PLEASE.

    Give us a break please. Wait – let me re-phrase that…

    PLEASE for THE LOVE OF GOD do NOT GIVE CARYN JAMES THE MOST HITS, and THE ‘MOST POPULAR’ LINKED ARTICLE of HER F**K’D UP HACK of A CAREER for DESTROYING ANGIE, Jared, PLEASE!!

    I’m reminded of that last brouhaha, that sent me over the edge.

    We were anxiously and immenently set to celebrate something important and worthwhile about this family as I recall, and something trashy Godawful about Angelina or Brad or both — was the title of thread!!

    What GIVES?!! Hence, as I recall, we then had to post our happy wonderful postings on some thread that maligned Angie and the family, until you came to your senses and felt our pain!! Come on Jared. Feel OUR PAIN, and remove that LINK!!

    I just cannot believe, we are going through this again!!

    Do you get word what is blowing up, and so to continue the trend and increase your hits you link?? If so, I guess we have many more days and hours of this ‘bashing’ since Jared has chosen to give it even more publicity.

    Brad is set to gain an Oscar nod this morning (crossing fingers, toes, eyes, and limbs!) and if it happens, then we’ll be over the moon posting in a thread that is LINKED DIRECTLY TO a COLUMN that DESTROYS ANGELINA. Nice.

    Just stop this please.

    PLEASE DEADEN the LINKJARED. Remove it. On behalf of the MANY FANS anxious to post about the OSCARS & BRAD this morning (hopefully happy news) who don’t particularly care to see Angelina brought down, demeaned and denigrated in the self-same LINK.

    Do it for THEIR FANS, who PATRONIZE you SITE Jared – please, and thank you!!

    Get rid of it. PLEASE JARED??????

  • anustin

    some of the poster above wer not really brad and anjie fans.anjie doesn’t feel uncomfortable….she doesn’t read tabloid.

  • http://www.VeryLiberating.com VeryLiberating.com

    Haha… Benjamin is such a funny name for him…

  • bluemoon

    However, the NYT link was so unnecessary.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I agree.

    In other news Bradforums has pics of Brad dad in NO. Maybe Jared should add those pics instead of the link of the NYT article.

  • anustin

    yes jared!please removed!!!!!!!thanks again!

  • bluemoon

    If Brad get his Oscar nod maybe will get a new thread and will move on, but if he doesn’t well, the NYT will get even more hits.

  • Kate

    Good article from the NYT! Like it!

  • Gussie

    Et tu, Jared… AGAIN?

  • NYCGalnVA

    As I said in another thread…..plant a seed…..water it by talking about it, causing it to grow and take root in places we never expected. We here are responsible for breathing life into that NYT article. We gave it CPR!! We are talking to the hand because the face ain’t or hasn’t listened folks!

    Why does Brad have to stand up and shout his feelings for Angie. Those are feelings he shares with HER….not us! We are lucky to see more glimpses of it during their recent public appearances together. Personally, I think they have been in love with each other longer than we know….I’m thinking since April/May 2004…..judging by Angie’s confession in Vogue that they were so used to NOT being together for so long….and her comment that a few months in she said “God I can’t wait to get to work in the morning…..

    We also have to remember that Brad has not yet given an in-depth one on one interview with any publication or media outlet. You can bet when he does, his words will be picked apart too….Hello!! Remember his comment in Esquire on WHY he and Angie are not getting married??? My guess is he will talk about Angie & their family when Ocean’s Thirteen comes out in June 2007. You just know there will be another sit down interview with the Ocean’s 13 cast, just like they did for the first two movies. I’m hoping that he does “Inside the Actors Studio” at some point too. By then it will have been over two years since his marriage ended, long enough time for folks to move on.

    —————————————————————

    Hi captd,
    I truly understand your frustrations and what appears to be your suppressed anger at Brad for what you describe as his failure to publicly verbalize his love and support of Angie.
    But please, take it from someone who works in the western media (not in America – lol – but they’re all the same, in terms of the blurring of the lines between “hard news” and entertainment): smart people, like Brad, know that YOU NEVER VOLUNTEER YOURSELF TO BECOME THE SUBJECT OF A MEDIA STORY! Its bad enough when one HAS TO be interviewed (for example, for professional reasons) and, therefore, run the risk of having your intentions misconstrued and your words taken out of context. So given those risks already, a smart person does not VOLUNTARILY subject him/herself to media scrutiny – they’re gonna have their say, anyway, so why give them ammunition against yourself?
    You must not forget that Brad’s major in college was journalism and advertising – he knows the biz. Can you imagine what the vultures will do with them both if he comes out and “defends” Angie? Thats when the media will have their field day. I can guarantee you, that all they will choose to see in any defence by Brad of Angie, is a slap in the face of X and all the years they were married and blah blah blah – and its then that you will see the “backlash” against both brad and ange, cos that’s really what the vultures are waiting for. i think that from now on you wont see Angie giving anymore interviews like the one she gave to Vogue, where she talks about their personal life. I think from now on, if she talks to the media at all, it will be on her terms, she will only talk about her UN work and the things she has seen of the world’s suffering people from her travels, etc. She will keep the focus on the plight of the less fortunate and not on her family.

  • anustin

    maybe jared doesn’t wanna moved on!

  • smiled2

    I do agree with what captd said

    Where is Brad?I love Brad..but defend your women for god sakes!!
    Why does Angie get all the negative press? They journalists..they never write any negative things about Brad…

    Angie has been saying all these wonderfull things about Brad lately..I never hear anything from him..:(

  • hey cliniqua

    CLINIQUA,

    Why are you so threatened by the negative articles about Angelina? Don’t worry your obsession of Angelina will not fade away because you are a maniac!

  • JARED JUST LIKE PEREZ

    Jared only wants more hits using all of you BAMZ fans. He will post anything to get more hits and this thread show it.

  • schae

    To Poster #16 It never ceases to amaze me how moronic FAKERSONS fans are, you know for a fact that it was the reporter who called the baby a blob but u and yours choose to ignore that fact. As for the NYT, do u see it all over the news? Hell no, because anyone with half a brain knows any reporter with an ounce of credibility dosen’t QUOTE from a TABLOID. And last but not least, the only reason this is happening (SO CALL BACKLASH) is because of all the wonderful press and pictures and interviews thats been going around of this couple. It started with E and they keep pushing it because there so called star reporter couldn’t come up with an intelligent question to ask, if u don’t believe me go back and look at all the other interviews done that day, ooohhh but u can’t because we’ll be proven right. We don’t expect everyone on the planet to love this couple, but we do expect fairness and we all know when it comes to AJ u guys can’t be fair because it makes u and your FAKERSON queen look like, crying whinning, self obsessed, no talented asses. Thank God AJ and BP haven’t the time to waste on reading every nasty twisted lie planted and printed to make FAKERSON shine, they know better and they understand the game, to address it give it credibility and lets face it they have way better things to do with the’re time. Love to this family anbd God bless your union and family.

  • Mediterranean

    If we don’t like the headline of the thread, we shall choice another one for ourselves.

    Has Angie been back to the States? I think that I read on the other thread that his parents were in NO when she was away to be with Brad and the kids, or again someone made it up?

    YES!!! You are right. Icant understand Brad Pitt. If i where Angie i would be very disapointed.

  • Tabitha

    Angelina has been reported by reputable press to be back in NO as of late last week. So. don’t listen to haters and tabloid stuff.

  • Mya

    How can anyone criticize or put down Angelina Jolie? She gives 1/3 of her income to charities !!! NOT only does Jolie give $$$$ BUT she also spends her time to those in need. I would love to see more celebrities have as much compassion, devotion, and love that Jolie has for children all over the world and those less fortunate than us…
    So those who wish to bash her, please go elsewhere and spend your time bashing someone else in this world who is truly evil.

    _______________________________________________________________

    SERIOUSLY on the other thread said it best. Cliniqua your obessessiveness is truly disturbing. The NY Times article is one person’s opinion – whoop dee doo. What is the matter with people expressing their opinion? You don’t have to agree – and when you disagree you don’t have to spew your negative hate speech. Cliniqua your extreme black and white thinking is frightening. Why does it have to be the idea of “your either with us or against us.?” Did you learn that from your president?

  • Tabitha

    I found them. I never expected personal family photos to be posted in the BB movie section.

  • Hmmm

    JARED, why did you not include news about Angie going to VIETNAM to improve the income of farmers?

    Angie does not care about Hello’s most attractive poll. She cares about helping poor farmers improve their lives.
