Angelina Jolie @ "A Mighty Heart" Screening

Angelina Jolie @

Angelina Jolie stands beside co-star Dan Futterman and Judea and Ruth Pearl (Daniel Pearl‘s parents) at a special benefit screening of A Mighty Heart on Wednesday at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, Calif. (Bigger picture inside…)

“I hope we got some part of Danny’s life and spirit in this movie,” Jolie said to Judea and Ruth. “I hope that we have made something that speaks to you and to his work.”

The sold-out event raised more than $15,000 for the Daniel Pearl Foundation which was formed in memory of journalist Daniel Pearl and is committed to promoting cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music, and innovative communications.

Just Jared caught a screening of A Mighty Heart last night and let’s just say it was beyond moving. [Spoilers ahead!] The documentary-style drama is very real and very emotional. The UK Times summed up the editing best: “The director’s rapid-fire and choppy editing gives you a genuine feel for the many different sides of Karachi, and the urgency of the investigation.”

Angie‘s screams of anguish as Marianne Pearl are intense and will have you writhing in your theater seat. Memorable moments include the wedding flashback scene, Angelina dancing (with a bit of tummy showing, if I remember correctly) and the birthing scene of son Adam.

But don’t fret my pets, the ending scene is sweet. There are captions of “current updates” about the Pearls as you watch the backs of Marianne and Adam walking away hand-in-hand. The music also perfectly matched up — I was whistling the tune on my way out of the theater!

A Mighty Heart opens June 22. Catch it if you can!

    Angie doesn’t need or have to give an “explanation” for why she wasn’t in Vegas.

  • Joey

    Yeah, her screaming was heart felt, however Jolie’s performance was mediocre. Her accent was horrible!

    This movie sounds boring.

  • hmm

    I’m sure Joey has a life.

    Not everyone want to see this movie and some might think it’s boring. Just like you don’t like every movie in the world.

  • Frenchy

    #8 is right.

    Boy these two have active lives each on their won. They are superstars and humanitarians and are partners in live as well as parents to a growing brood. Very nice.

    I hope they have a very nice long quiet summer vacation as Brad wanted.

  • ligaya

    I’m curious about all the people posting negative comments about A Mighty Heart and Angelina Jolie’s performance.

    How did you get to see AMH? Were you at Cannes?

  • Andrómeda

    Thanks JJ…
    What a wonderful human being is Angie, I love her!!…She looks great.

  • bourgie

    She looks dreamy in white. She’s glowing. Good for her. This film is gonna be tough to sit through but I’m sure that it sends out a message of hope for the future. The cast has gotten good reviews.

  • sky78

    love angelina….can’t wait to see the movie..

  • Besane

    Thank you so much, Jared! I thought you are in NYC–was the screening in LA? Sounds like a WONDERFUL movie. I just wish that haters can get beyond their blind hatred and see this meaningful film.

  • Nausicaa

    She is perfect, as always…

  • Estelle

    Thanks JJ, you are the best, I can’t wait to see the movie.

    That’s why she is not with Brad at LV, she was raising money for the charity. Laughing hard at those trolls who are now eating their own foot…..LOL

  • Natalie

    She is a truly beautiful person on the INSIDE, thats what I love about her. And, obviously she has the outer beauty too.

    Say what you will about her body or her love life but : You have to admire her for doing a movie she’s passionate about. She uses her fame to draw attention to world issues and the things that matter most. Unlike so many celebs who would just send a check to a random charity, Angelina has the personal connection w/every charity she gives to. She’s spent years of her career (when she probably COULD have been making millions doing a new movie every month) in refugee camps and war torn countries helping people, offering support to them, and adopting.

    I have nothing bad to say about her =)

  • hmm

    I am only one troll :)thank you
    ps i said the movie sounds boring and i meant it. No one will see this movie unless they are fricken 90

  • hmm

    she is a total attention wh***, why would one person need so much fricken attention. ?????

  • lillianne

    whoever said she looks rough must be cross-eyed. this is a beautiful woman both inside and out.

  • omg

    She looks adorable.
    .
    .

    The troll is laughing at its own jokes. Aww bless your cotton socks.

  • hmm

    I can’t take AJ serious, i can’t get past the scene of her a billy bob on the red carpet. It was absolutely discusting.

  • Estelle

    well, I’m sure those trolls find the movie is boring, because their interlect can only handle movie like “Dude, where is my car?” or ” Illegal Aliens”…muahahahha…

    Brad Pitt relishes the spotlight at the Las Vegas premiere of Ocean’s Thirteen on Wednesday. The actor spent 15 minutes on the red carpet greeting fans and taking photos, before leaving his fellow cast members behind to party as he headed back to Los Angeles.

  • lillianne

    hmmmmm – wonder why you are fixated on her? If beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you think she is a whore what does that make you? hmmmm……..

  • ewww

    She looks like a man with make-up. Well actually she looks like a drag queen.

  • Estelle

    spelling check: intellect

  • Mmmmm

    Weird they have the same neck even tho there is a huge age gap?

  • sophie

    #29 hmm |

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

    Pot calling kettle black…who exactly is the attention wh***? I’d say that would be YOU!!!!

  • ida

    eww shut the f**ck up moran.JJ IS HIGH TIME THESE CRACK HEADS LEAVE,IS THE SAME THING EVERY TIME.ONE OR TWO PEOPLE CHANGING NAMES,AM GETTING TIRED OF THE SAME OLD SHIT EVERYTIME

  • chung

    She looks the same age as the woman beside her….scary.

  • coalharbourqt

    *NEWSFLASH TO hmm* Most of Angie’s fans are fairly young and they will go to see any movie she does – she is that famous. That being said, this is not expected to be a summer blockbuster for the masses. Many of the people who will go see this movie will be university students and educated professionals.

    You sound like a 15 yr. old boy – go see Spiderman 3 again sweetie.

    I can see that you dont like Angie. She is a good actress and has given award winning perfomances especially when she is potraying a real life person. She did it with Gia and I am sure she has done it in this one. I am 25 years old and I am going to watch this movie.

  • http://allconsidered.com sharon

    Angie looks stunning, beautiful.

  • Mmmmm

    Yeah, I realized mine had been deleted too. If this is B&A site only be sure to change the name to Just Brangelina so I know.

  • simple truth

    39 Jared are you a Loon?
    Yes, I’ve been trying to post for quite a while with no success.
    I bet that if might comments were about how marvelous SKELETORA is, then they would appear.

  • http://allconsidered.com sharon

    why the haters are here? is that because there is nothing going on over their own thread? pathetic.

  • simple truth

    SKELETORA is beginning to look like a fashion pogostick.

  • Ida are you a Loon

    What’s up with all the foul language Ida. Calm down I’m asking an honest question. No name calling or insults just curious as to why such vile disgusting comments about any other celeb stays up, but anything not fawning about Jolie gets taken down.
    Anyone should be ashamed of the homophobic insults being hurled at Aniston’s new boyfriend even you.

  • coalharbourqt

    Thanks JJ for the new thread! Nice to see Daniel Pearl’s parents at the event and acknowledged – they have been through so much too in losing their son. And I’m loving Angie’s outfit – very appropriate for the event! A sexy Versace dress would not be respectful to the occasion.
