Ashes of Angie's Mom To Be Scattered

Ashes of Angie's Mom To Be Scattered

British tabloid The Daily Mirror reports that Angelina Jolie will take Brad Pitt and her family to scatter her mom’s ashes in the Bahamas. (Marcheline Bertrand, 56, died last week from ovarian cancer.)

Their source says: “It was one of her favorite places, so Ange wants this to be special.”

    The rules for cremation for Catholics changed in the early 60′s. The rules allow for cremation but would rather the cremation happen after the funeral liturgy.

    How would they know? Britain’s Daily Mirror is a tab, right?

    I really feel sorry for both of them. I can’t imagine how it would feel losing your mom. I lost my brother last year to cancer. And up to now I still mourn for his death.

    Namibia: Angelina, Brad Have Return Visit to Namibia in Sights

    The Namibian (Windhoek)

    February 2, 2007
    Posted to the web February 2, 2007

    HOLLYWOOD stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are eyeing a return visit to Namibia for a vacation later this year to take a break from their hectic schedule.

    During their stay the couple are expected to decide on whether to accept an offer of honorary citizenship made by the Namibian Government, The Namibian has reliably learnt.

    A Cabinet decision to that effect was taken last year already, a well-placed source told The Namibian.

    “This decision must be seen as a token of appreciation for what they have done for Namibia,” the source said.

    Namibia made headlines around the world last year when the celebrity couple chose the coastal holiday village of Langstrand as their temporary home while awaiting the birth of their first biological child, Shiloh Nouvel.

    Their baby daughter was born on May 28 2006 at a clinic in nearby Swakopmund.

    Shiloh became the most famous baby in the world after the first photos of her were released a few days after her birth.

    The Namibian Government immediately informed the Jolie and Pitt that baby Shiloh would receive Namibian citizenship, as she was born here.

    Before Jolie and Pitt returned home to the US with Shiloh, their adopted son Maddox (5) and daughter Zahara (2), Cabinet decided to grant them honorary citizenship of Namibia.

    “Angelina and Brad were extremely pleased about that, but they requested time to think about it,” a source told The Namibian. They wanted to get advice whether their honorary citizenship would not clash with her charity commitments and her status as UNHCR goodwill ambassador,” the source said.

    Jolie already has honorary citizenship of Cambodia, where she adopted her son, Maddox.

    The famous couple were dogged by the international press throughout their close to 10-week stay in Namibia and put Namibia on the international map.

    Jolie and Pitt travelled to several tourism spots like Namibrand in the southern parts of the Namib Desert and Harnas Wildlife Farm near Gobabis.

    The couple donated approximately N$2 million to be equally divided between the Swakopmund and Walvis Bay State hospitals to acquire medical equipment for their maternity departments.

    The Harnas Wildlife Foundation also received a donation.
    he couple and their three children have set up a new home base in the famous French Quarter of New Orleans in the US.

    Don’t complain, yesterday was the same thing but either way people keep posting and now the thread has 26 pages, leave Jared alone. If you don’t like it go and post in a private forum, souljolie and bradforums have decided to erase posts with new pictures during this time to respect of angelina.

    Thank you thank you thank you. Your tab reports serve a twofold purpose……

    1. Showing what joke the rags are
    2. Educating people on how they operate

    …and you’d think after the first two lessons people wouldn’t have to question if there’s any merit to what’s said in them. Yeah, sometimes there’s a fluke and they accidently tell the truth about something, but it’s as rare as snow in Calcutta lol.

    It just seems to me like especially Brad is at the end of his rope with these paps, and I’m just afraid he’s going to lose it and really pop one of them. This family just lost their MOTHER, can’t they give them some peace and distance, so that they can properly mourn. It’s hideous what they are doing to them, they are PEOPLE, with emotions, not animals in a ZOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Frenchy

    None of this sounds right. Completely fabricated. Catholics do not do cremation. If there is severe trauma to the body, then it’s a closed casket. Bahamas? I think they got Anna Nicole Smith’s story mixed in. No one knows anything.

    ____________________________________________________________

    Frenchy, that’s not correct. Catholics do allow cremation now. They had too. They could not bury all the people who needed to be buried in Catholic cemetaries.

    Pitt is hardly at the end of his rope. Obviously, if he needed to be home if Angelina was upset he would be. He’s not. While she and her brother are devasted by the death of their mother people forget they were prepared for it. Marcheline battled this for many, many years.

  • anon

    And won’t it just be wonderful when we have FULL coverage of them in the Bahamas, spreading her mothers ashes?

    And won’t it just make all of you more dedicated fans if you get to revel in and watch her grieve?

    This circus is disgusting. The tabloids, the paparazzi and the blog world need to walk away from these stories. And you claiming to be fans. Stop commenting, you’re only keeping this circus in business.

    Questions & Answers about CREMATION for CATHOLICS

    Cremation may be a confusing issue for Catholics. At one time, the church prohibited cremation but this is no longer the case. We’ve provided some answers to the most commonly asked questions and we hope this will be helpful in making your decision.

    “Lord, for your faithful people life is changed, not ended.”

    When did it become allowable for Catholics to be cremated?
    In 1963, the Catholic Church lifted its prohibition forbidding Catholics to choose cremation. Canon 1176 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law states, “The Church earnestly recommends the pious custom of burying the bodies of the dead be observed, it does not however, forbid cremation unless it has been chosen for reasons which are contrary to Christian teaching.”

    One of the main reasons I love JustJared is how much you learn about the subjects that come up.

    Thanks, this is really interesting. I knew there were other denomations that didn’t, and don’t encourage it, but I think it’s becoming less and less an issue with them as well.

  • Observer

    One, anything the tabloids say can hardly be belived until things happen to prove it. That’s the best I can say about tabloid’s stories.

    Two, the ash rumor surprised me since I thought only the Chinese do that. I thought all Americans (at least those originally from the Western world) want to be buried when they die. And the thought of the dead body being burned is just unthinkable to them. Then, this is AJ, so maybe she doesn’t believe in anything others believe anyway, or she likes to do things in other ways than the “American” way.

    Three, it is equally shocking that fans on this site began to discuss the Catholic tradition of handling dead bodies because of a tabloid story, and they are beginning to talk about how the ash thing makes sense to them because they are AJ’s fans!

  • briseis

    This is what I love about JustJared. He deletes obnoxious posts from bloggers who cross the line, and when people point out something offensive to them or makes them very uncomfortable (like the previous title of this thread), he accommodates then and changes said offensive/uncomfortable item. And he provides all of us BAMZSers a nice, decent place to congregate at.

    Hi, Isabelle II. I’m still here, just lurking … will go beddy-bye soon, because I have to get up at 6:30 p.m. to get ready to go back to work.

    Posted by kimber on Bradforums:

    Joe Carnahan is the kick ass director of Smokin’ Aces and he’s posted this review of Jesse James on his blog. You can’t get much better than this.

    THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD 02/01/2007 at 08:23 AM

    Guys:

    I’ve been meaning to post this for a little while and haven’t had the opportunity,
    so here it is. I had the distinct privilege and pleasure of getting a sneak peek at
    Andrew Dominik’s film ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert
    Ford’ and all I can say is:

    Holy Sh*t.

    It’s so close to being a full-fledged masterpiece, it literally had me sitting there,
    saying things like ‘Where the hell has Casey Affleck been?’ He’s a LOCK for some
    sort of major acting nod. Be it Globe, Oscar, something. Nobody comes out of this
    movie without viewing that guy in whole other light. Mindblowing. I’m not
    bullshi*ting you guys. He’s that good. And Brad Pitt has never been better in
    a film. He too, should be lauded for what he accomplishes with that role. The
    guy projects a menace I’ve never seen and goes very, VERY deep.

    There are moments of still and utter silence between characters as tense and awkward and terrifying as anything you’ve ever seen. Andrew’s ability to just allow a scene to develop gradually and let the audience watch and observe without the need for rampant schisms of rocket propelled editorial breaks is the mark of a true master. If you saw and loved ‘Chopper’ then I can’t imagine you not falling head over heels for this flick.

    We throw words around like ‘brilliant’ and attach greatness to things that in the
    end don’t really deserve that level of praise…This one DOES.

    I’m hoping Warner Brothers understands what this film can be and allows Andrew’s
    cut to see the light of day. At nearly three hours it’s something of such sublime,
    elegaic beauty and vicious intent, that I don’t think we’ll see a film like it for a long
    time to come.

    JC

    Here’s a reader’s review that was in the comments section of Joe’s review.

    QUOTE
    I went to a test screening of this film in Pasadena a few months ago and completely agree. Affleck is amazing in this film and Pitt keeps getting better with age. Sam Rockwell and Mary-Louise Parker are also great in the film.

    Very little dialogue is spoken by Pitt and when the violence is unleashed, it is brutal and real. I think the cut we saw was easily three hours. What was the exact running time on the cut you saw Joe?

    Shades of Terrence Malick, Sergio Leone, John Ford, Peckinpah. I was wondering what happened to this film. Glad to see Dominik is still toiling away on it. A close cousin to this film, in my opinion, is Unforgiven. Hopefully Warners will give this film the same treatment they gave Eastwood’s.

    Also, the cinematography in this film is sublime and striking. Roger Deakins is one of my favorite DPs working today and his work on this film ranks with the work he did on O Brother, Where Art Thou. Actually the look of both films is very similar. Breathtaking cinematography.

    There is a new video at Splashnews that’s really bad. It shows you exactly the amount of paps that are there and how rude they are. Briefly they show them at Marcheline’s hotel apartment and Brad on the balcony and then it goes to the Plan B offices and the police. They’re yelling at him and asking if Jon Voight has contacted him

    He was there for hours. He went there after they cleaned up the rest of Marcheline’s things from her apt at L’Ermitage. Brad’s just keeping the paps off Angelina and working at the same time.

    You said it jpf! I’ve learned a lot by lurking on this site too, part of what makes it so addictive: accounting practices for U.S. charities, rice growing, lifestyle and custom in India, climate in Namibia, etc. Dragonfly’s recent post re women and society was great.

    There are a lot of knowledgeable and interesting people who post on this site. But then again, this blogsite (like the world) has the good the bad and the ugly.

    Is it possible for African Girl’s “The Rules” and kk1′s “Observations on different posters” to be brought over to this site? Can someone tell me how to do it? I’d really like to print them off together for future reference.
