    Believe it, because you know it would’ve been much worse if they adopted an American child, because we seem to indulge people way too much, especially those who don’t necessarily deserve the consideration.

    (For those who dont want to read or rehash anythign about X please scroll)

    Behavioral psychologists and others of that ilk often tell women in particular, that when a man tells you who he is, you must believe him. For example, if your boyfriend often speaks disparagingly of his Xes don’t think that wont happen to you. Its best you listen carefully, cut your losses and move on.
    Of course, this goes for both men and women. People should not have unreasonable expectations of others.

    I mention all this because I remembered a quotation from JA in a January 2004 Vogue interview in which she said:
    “if somebody ever wished to be me for a day, all I can think is that they would be the most pissed-off person once they got here. They would be like, ‘What in the hell . . . ? I got sold such a bill of bullshit. This is not the greatest thing to be her.’ There is a machine that creates these unbelievable illusions, based on, I’m sure, some of what the person gives. But it’s an important thing for me to demystify the illusion.”

    Another thing I learned about her – FROM HER OWN MOUTH – in that interview is that she apparently considers herself to be ‘rachel green’ and seems to have deliberately cultivated this image for the benefit of her fans and others who she would like to be her fans (which is EVERYONE!). In the interview ( which, btw was based on the fact that ‘friends’ was ending and the cast had had that big Oprah interview, etc.), the Vogue interviewer noted that JA kept referring to the cast members by their characters’ names. He described it as “endearing” but early in the article he said:
    “Instead of separating the mythmaking aspect of her Hollywood job from her “real” life, she treats them as one and the same.”

    And later on in the article, when asked how difficult it had been for them to let go, she says:
    “The funny thing is, I think we take turns. They would all probably say that I’m having the hardest time. Or Matt LeBlanc. Everyone goes through their moments, though. What will we do? Thank God Joey has a show.”
    And the interviewer says: This, by the way, is one of the most endearing things about Aniston: even she sometimes refers to the actors by their characters’ names.”

    I posted this because it helps to explain why the handful of haterz, who are hell bent on keeping this particular triangle alive and who have turned their psychotic anger onto innocent children and two adults who have voluntarily come together (B/A), persist in seeing JA as rachel green and how that ‘lovable, friendly girl’ had been shafted by that woman-who-can-always-get-what-she-wants-named-AngelinaJolie-and-by-god-its-so-not-fair! lol

    ITA. So many children remain in permanent foster care in the US, and are not adoptable because parental rights have not been terminated. Many of these children have been returned to their parents a number of times, only to have child protective services called to pick the children up again because of harm caused by their socalled parents. It is a sad sad situation. The best interests and well being of a child is to have a stable loving family, not be a ping pong ball.

    Sorry, but while I adore Brad, he is not Bond material. He’s gorgeous, yes, he can be dangerous too, but he’s too all-American for the part. Bond belong to the Brits and I doubt that they would stand for it. Besides, I haven’t seen Daniel Craig’s take on Bond yet, but I gotta say, I am appreciating his thighs, chile!

    Considerate of you to give an alert, but I found it very interesting. Thank you.
    It shows a lack of JA’s inability to articulate or to move on, as life changes. Life is a constant change, whether it is a show ending, or a relationsip ending, she has shown, at least to the public, a very hard time moving forward. Didn’t she eat the same thing for lunch for ten years on the set of Friends? There’s a stable person, for sure.

    Susie and Guli. I stopped watching the bond movie since Pierce Brosnan. I thought Pierce Brosnan is ok. But, since then I haven’t been watching. Oh, Brad would make one hot azzz James Bond. Angie will definitely make one hottie in and as Jane Bond, but I want Angie to play a bad azzz girl and as the vilian. I want to see Angie kicking Brad’s azzz just for the fun and for laughs :) OMG, I can’t stop imagining Brad and Angie this James Bond…..LOOOOL.

    Speaking of the similarity between Brad and Pax, I’ve always seen a similarity between Z and Angelina.

    Maddox doesn’t share any obvious similarities with his parents but it seems he takes after his mom in terms of mannerism. He’s cheeky, yet exudes cool. He has this calm demeanor about him when there is chaos all around him. He’s going to be like his mom, a born leader, but with a wild streak and bit of punk in him. Maddox is definitely’s a mama’s boy while Z seems to a daddy’s girl. Actually, she probably rules the roost and has both of her parents dancing to her tune.

    I can’t quite figure out about Shiloh yet. Sometimes, she looks just like Brad and at other times, she looks like Angelina. I believe her personality will be more quiet, laid back, tom boyish, yet very sweet. Z is fierce while Maddox is spunky.

    Even though everyone says Shiloh will be the one who will grow up to be the actress, I’m placing my bet on Zahara becoming the most likely to work in movies like her parents.

    Isn’t it cool to know that Danial Craig and Gerald Butler have both worked with Angie and are now becoming famous in their own right. I remember Daniel Craig once mentioned around the time he was doing worldwide promotion for the Bond movie that he loved working with Angelina. It was really sweet of him. I’d love to know what Gerald has to say. I wonder if any of them developed a crush. I know Colin Farrel did. I want to line them all up: Daniel Craig, Oliver Martinez, Gerald Butler, Colin Farrel and Clive Owen and hear them talk about Angie as a co-star.

    She got to work with some of the hottest actors. I’m so jealous.

    Perfectly understandable. I’m not sure if I want Brad and Angelina to do another movie together, but I wouldn’t mind if they remade movies like Penny Serenade or The Lady Eve– mind you, The Lady Eve shouldn’t be touched at all, but Brad does have that innocent quality that Fonda had and Angelina can definitely fill Stanwyck’s shoes. And there is something about Brad and Angelina that encourages a teasing/torture fantasy, with Brad on the receiving end. Again, it’s that innocence that Brad has.

    WANTED to film in Eastern Europe and Chicago.

    I read that she was in Chicago (alone) too.

  • tootootrue

    I think that Angelina is in so much demand for films right now like Cate Blanchett was last year when she shot 3 or 4 films almost back to back (she said she had a weekend to prepare for The Good German with Clooney, her schedule was just that tight). CateB said that all the films offered her were so good that she just could not turn them down.

    Atlas Shrugged does not look like it will go into production until next year, while Wanted is this spring/early summer, and Changling is early fall. Angie is sort of a supporting actress in Wanted, and starring in Changling(Eastwood shoots films fast, he does not waste any time). The role in Wanted was especially written for her, wow, she has the power.

    Brad is to star in State of Play starting in November, and I read it will be filmed in Washington, DC. Didn’t Angelina mention in the past that she planned to spend some time lobbying Congress for bills she supports?

    The Last Word: Angelina Jolie
    A rebel with a cause

    By Christopher Dickey
    Newsweek International
    March 26, 2007 issue – Angelina Jolie began traveling as a good-will ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) some six years ago. She has visited the victims of violence in Africa, Pakistan and Cambodia—first as an observer in the background, then using her fame to draw attention to the plight of the helpless. Recently the movie star visited a refugee camp housing Darfur refugees in Chad. NEWSWEEK’s Christopher Dickey spoke to her about her mission. Excerpts:

    DICKEY: What was your original motivation for working with the UNHCR, for doing these kinds of trips?
    JOLIE: I started traveling about seven years ago with film. I would go to places like Cambodia and hear about the many refugees in Thailand and hear about the land mines and hear about the history … I remember sitting up for two days straight and reading everything obsessively. I read about the UNHCR, and I realized it was an agency that I didn’t know anything about: that they were taking care of 20 million people … And I remember realizing that I couldn’t understand how I had not known that my whole life.

    When did it occur to you that you could do something about this directly? Did people approach you, or—
    I approached them. I think they thought I was a little crazy.

    When was this?
    Six years ago. I was very nervous to call the U.N. agency at the time. I [was] considered a rebel in Hollywood. At the time I was also a bit of a wild child. So first I went to Washington [to the UNHCR office] and I sat with everybody there and said, “You know, I know you don’t know me. You might have heard things about me … And I don’t want to bring negative attention to your agency. If you could just help me, I’ll pay my way.”
    I spent the next year and a half going to, first, two camps in Africa, and then Pakistan and Cambodia. And with no cameras and with no press, and had the opportunity to have this great education before I spoke at all … I was transformed in such an amazing way.

    But you do have photographers following you now.
    It took me a while to agree to do it. I guess I saw that so many times the picture comes before the knowledge and the substance and I certainly didn’t want to do that to myself or the organization. And also, I really just was shy. I was shy about sitting on the floor and talking to a woman and having a camera take a picture because I thought it was making less of my conversation with her. But [then I thought,] let the people speak for themselves through the camera. And if I can draw you in a little because I’m familiar, then that’s great. Because I know that at the end you’re not looking at me, you’re looking at them.

    I think it’s fair to say people start out by looking at you, Angelina.
    As long as they end up looking at them, that’s the point.
    Do you worry about people who say this is celebrity tourism?
    I don’t know if anybody saying that has spent the last six years of their life going to over 30 camps and really spending time with these people. I can’t care.

    Do you still go with so few people? I can’t believe you take no one with you …
    I take no one. I [go] by myself on a commercial plane and into the field with my backpack.

    You still do that?
    Yes, I just did that on my last trip. I met the photographer there.

    When you got there, what were the people saying about their situation? There are photographs with this boy tied to a tent pole.
    The little boy was a normal 3-year-old who disappeared for 48 hours after [his village was bombed]. I can only imagine what he saw. And when found, he was found in a state … As a first reaction you want to remove [the rope]. But the mother, she has four other kids, she’s by herself. Therapists visit him, but if [he's] left alone he will disappear or bang himself. I talked to him for like half an hour and just kind of looked at him for a long time before he touched me, and there was a little boy in there who was open to a kind sound … There’s a normal little kid right there, but he’s got a look of fear. He’s nervous to touch. And you can feel that need for safety. The mother unfortunately can’t not go work for the other children and can’t sit with him all day long and hold him, which is probably what would do some good. But what he needs is probably some serious therapy. [There are] lots of children like him there.

    Do you despair?
    Certainly, at times. The first two years I just cried constantly, like a woman does.

    Oh, like anybody does.
    Yes, like anybody does, thank you. And I went through a period of just complete lack of hope. And then I went through a period of anger that smart, articulate people in power have not been able to answer these issues and define ways of intervention. And that it just keeps going on. About a year ago, I got a lot of books on international law and I tried to study what was going on. I don’t want to have to keep going back to camps, five different times, over the next 30 years of my life, [for situations] that there are no solutions for.
