Angelina Jolie is a Bouquet of Beauty

Angelina Jolie is a Bouquet of Beauty

Angelina Jolie makes a a picture perfect bunch with a bouquet of roses in the new St. John clothing ad, which will be featured in the August 2007 issue of Vanity Fair. Could a Stepford wife look any sexier??

And no, Angie hasn’t been laying low. Just yesterday, she was spotted leaving Prague, Czech Republic where she’s been shooting her action thriller Wanted.

The mother-of-four boarded the private jet carrying baby Shiloh, 13 months. Brad, in a new newsboy cap, carried Zahara, 2. The family’s chief bodyguard, Mickey Brett, carried 3-year-old Pax on board. And Maddox, 5, dressed in a gray t-shirt and khaki pants, boarded the plane all by his grown-up self!

What’s next for the Jolie-Pitts? Angie has said, “I’m in Prague for a few months, then I take two months off, then I work for two months.” Let’s hope they go out for some family-bonding time during their time off!

Check out more pictures here. One of the boxes transported onto the Jolie-Pitt‘s private jet reads “Dad’s bags for bikes don’t open needs to go on the jet.”

Thank-you Jared. Beautiful oriental outfit.
Just adore seeing Angie and baby Shiloh

# 6

WOO-HOO! I did it! :D

# 7

Really nice photo of Angelina. It’s looks as though she’s cut her hair. It looks a lot shorter than it had previously been.

# 8

Damn, she looks drop-dead gorgeous in that suit. But you could put her in a Pillsbury flour sack with three X’s on it and she’d still look gorgeous.

# 9

Its good that they are laying low… too much of anything os good for nothing esp that much exposure for the kiddies

NEW THREAD ALERT @ 07/15/2007 at 10:16 pm

NEW THREAD

Wonder if they are heading for their family vacation? Brad and Angelina and their little world travelers…let’s guess where they will show up next.

African girl @ 07/15/2007 at 10:16 pm

She looks good as usual. Thanks JJ.

Thanks JJ for the update!

Oh my man..Jared…mwah….

2 months of Beckhams is gonna drive me crazy. So, I am with you about the Jolie-Pitt coming out of hiding once in a while so that you can pay the bills and I get my fix…

…once in a while…that’s all folks.

*pouts*

Alexanderina @ 07/15/2007 at 10:19 pm

WOW she looks GORGEOUS. I love the picture, it is just beautiful. And also the pictures with her and Shi, she looks great. I wonder where they are going.

Thanks Jared for the new thread and picture

I love Angelina in the St. John ads. They are so classy.

“Family vacation?” LOL, they are never home. This “mother” is making ANOTHER movie? More daycare (warehousing) and more strangers taking care of you, kids. Geez, this woman cannot stand to be home (alone) with Brad OR her kiddie collection for 5 minutes. The kids probably think Angelina is the babysitter!

Missouri Fan @ 07/15/2007 at 10:23 pm

It’s refreshing to see the Jolie-Pitt’s

Shiloh sure looks like Brad in that picture. Angie is gorgeous as usual. Thanks Jared for the pics. Now you need to find out where they are for us. :lol:

I hope you don’t mind my asking, but how much does a St. John’s suit cost?

Thanks Jared! I’ve been having a case of JOLIE-PITT withdrawal symptoms! Hehehe.

It’s been several weeks since I saw this cute family.

Thanks for the pics.

Saint John is the official clothier to Stepford Wives. Just kidding. This photo looks etheral. I think this is one photo that would have looked stunning in color. Flowers are known for their color and scent. Angelina looks fabulous as usual.

ole miss rebel @ 07/15/2007 at 10:34 pm

She is beautiful

Oh she looks goregous it is really nice to see them…….

1998 Gussie

The whole interview:

American cinema’s most beautiful mug returns to the screen with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

- In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?
- Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Besides, I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

-Yourself, you do not work like that?
- No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

- How did things go with Soderbergh?
- At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been informed: there wont definitely be a Ocean fourteen. It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

- Do you regret having done any of your movies?
- More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

- You, unemployed?
- Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

- Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?
- Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a lost bullet was terrific to me. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

- You’re a working fiend…
- No, not really…

- But you say it yourself, you film a lot…
- A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it

- If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?
- To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?
-You do not? (Laughs). Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

- What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?
- If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

- By whom would you like to be directed?
/b>- By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick , with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Daiamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

- It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…
-True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

- And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…
- (Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

- You don’t love any other super heroes?
- I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me i that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things there?
Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

- Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?
- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

- The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?
- No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful reward comes above all from the public.

- May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?
(Laughs) You may always try.

- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!
- She is not one to show her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?
Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

- Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?
- I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

- How have you managed?,
By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.

- Actually, in keeping with your friend George Clooney, you are also tremendously worried about the state of our planet…
- Of course you’re going to say it is a bit hypocritical to proclaim oneself an environmentalist and to travel by plane, even if for professional reasons. But on my daily life I drive a small electric car, very powerful for that matter. I am very interested in the G8 Summits and often organize, as we did in Cannes, fundraisers to help the most destitute or for Darfur. To hang around artists such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and the world debt with the chief decision-makers has also strengthened my beliefs. The need to inform and the urgency of these problems remain vital. I’m going to get more and more involved in the years to come. I’d love to have done something good in my life!

Hello Everyone!!!!!

Angie looks absolutely beautiful.

Thanks Jared for the new thread.

Now back to lurking…….

Saw this on other sites but thanks JJ. Maybe these sets of photos will satisfy the ones who are always crying for new pics.

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

I’m glad this family is taking a vacation. I know, that’s making you and your idol Fraudiston jealous. Please tell your Fraudiston that her inside pipes are old, edging to 40. I guess the Jen fans and Fraudiston wanted to steal Shi since that chin cant have any and her eggs are decreasing rapidly !!!

If Angie is making a movie in another 2 months, good for her. This is better than that UNEMPLOYED X. Tell me, why is Courtney Cox never form a production company with X? And why didnt Courtney ask Jen to co-produce Dirt with her?

Could it be that Jen is a weakling and need someone to hold her hand, and without that support, she will fall apart??? Now, go back, you mole.

Bart works for Brad @ 07/15/2007 at 10:37 pm

Bart- like always poor baby brad, BAD BIG CRAZY ANGIE..

TELL YOUR BOSS TO GROW SOME BALLS FOR ONCE.

BRAD PITT IS THE ONE PAYING TROLLS

Angie looks fabulous in the casual top and pants . Looks like she’s put on some weight as the pants fit very well. .

Shi is clutching her stuffed toy .She is one darling baby.

No one went to see Angelina’s last flop, why is she bothering with another flop? So where are all her fans, not very many of them since this sk@nk’s movies always tank. Bottom line – Angelina’s name on a movie is a guaranteed flop. Brad’s life is in the toilet, couldn’t happen to a more deserving moron.

She is just not a St. Johns kind of person. The woman she is doesn’t match the clothes she’s wearing.

Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life.

Did he have a turbulent time with Aniston?

It’s nice to see the uber cool young mom and in demand actress of 4 on the go with her family. Home is where your family is so the Jolie-Pitts have been “home” since 2005. I very happy that Angelina’s happy with Brad and he with her. The pictures are stunning. Does anyone know if it’s the same photographer who took the first set last year? Shiloh is getting bigger and blonder every day.

“Dad’s bags for bikes don’t open needs to go on the jet.”

How cute. Hope the family enjoy their vacation.

Thanks Jared

wow I like what he said about Angie……he loves her alright…

Blondie, ntt- they are expensive but they are beautifully made knit suits and dresses. My mom used to wear St. Johns alot and I have them all now and they are still perfect and fashionable, like Chanel.

Thanks for the new thread Jared. Why are you calling Angie a stepford wife, tho?

Angie is goregous!

I miss Princess Zee, too.

I hope the stupid people don’t ask to see pictures of them while on vacation! JJ should put a lock on that one. With the Beowulf thread, you don’t really need new pics to keep a thread going.

Some people must be having a hard time dealing with just a few new photos of our favorite family. Still together, still happy, leaving on a jet plane for some fun with their kiddies…

Read another review today about Angelina’s performance in AMH and the strong, if not a sure thing, that she will be nominated for another Academy Award. Will try to scan it.

Krung Krung @ 07/15/2007 at 10:54 pm

there’s always haters no matter what blog site it is, can’t please everybody y’all…

does Brad and Angie own a private jet? they might as well since they travels a lot…

happy hannukah…

Saint John’s knits retail for around $1000 — $2000. They’re an investment. Expensive as hell but they never go out of style.

The difference between Angelina and X is that Angelina could put on a burlap sack and make it look like a Saint John’s suit. X would make a Saint John’s suit look like a burlap sack.

She had to show her face because Posh Spice is getting all the publicity lately and Jolie is probably having a fit.

ROFLMAO if you think Angelina gives a flying fcuk about Posh Spice. Only losers like X and her fans care about Posh Spice.

Jeesh, there is clearly 1 loser here switching their names up, how sad

MF-still didn’t get it :(

I see that the same trolls are switching tactics. It’s “divide and conquer” now. Not the triangle any more but a face off between B&A. Nice try, trolls. As for AMH, it has made almost $9M, so it’s not that bad for a movie with just one actor being well known. At least AJ earned rave reviews. That’s invaluable, if you are an actor.

++++++++++++++++++++++
Susie – You are right. A St. John’s suit has the ability to transcend any current trend, which is so important when you are spending as much as they cost. They are able to be dressed up or down, depending on the accessories. You’re lucky to have them. They remind of the kind of style made famous by Audrey Hepburn, never out of style, but never setting trends either.

The Jolie- Pitt family is an inspiration for all. Angie is the most beautiful woman in the world; everyone wants to copy her,

Hey ntt, hey susie! *waving* Yup, done moving and now comes the fun part – buying some new furniture and unpacking my books etc. :D Love my new place!

How have you been? What’s new? I haven’t been here for a while – did I miss anything exciting? I’ll have to go thread reading and catch up a bit…hope all is well with you!

Thanks for the new thread Just Jared. AJ looks great and Shiloh is a cutie. She will grow up to be a beauty like her mom. AJ has a successful campaign with Saint John(as well as her other product endorsements)and is a unique and defining model for their clothing line.
AMH is a powerful film and AJ gave an oscar worthy performance. There are a lot of miserable and jealous females posting(probably only one chronic name changer). However, the good thing about AJ is that she does not give in to public perception or cry over d and z listed celebrites opinion about her, not to mention catty females on a blog. She marches to the beat of her own drum and go about raising her children, giving quality performances and loving her Man. She is a woman that I greatly admire and respect for her charitable and UN work. Best wishes to BAMPZS and peace to all.

Thank You JJ for the new pics.Like I’ve always said you are the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!! What is a Troll?

plain thought from a fan @ 07/15/2007 at 11:05 pm

Now I guess no one will doubt that the Fug Face Famous is never a JP fan ever. Guess it can’t hold to show its true color any longer. Ha…

Back to the topic, Angelina looks extremely beautiful in that Saint John’s suit. It’s gonna be the best pic among all the pics from Saint John in my opinion.

It never fails with these predictable trolls. Thanks for the new pictures Jared.

Love the St. John’s one.

Dirty Cougar @ 07/15/2007 at 11:11 pm

Sheeit! Brad better start carrying Shiloh! Shiloh almost looks likes she outweighs Angelina! lol!

To: New name ~ if you google St. John’s or go back to the last thread, there is a link and you will be able to see that it is a higher end designer label, not available to JC Penneys. Didn’t know they carried a label with the same name. Just a coincidence, for sure.

75 new name : 07/15/2007 at 10:57 pm
I’ve seen **.Johns clothing at J.C.Penny.Could it be the same one?

No, I think JCP’s is Saint John Bay, not Saint John.

Awww, the inbred trolls have made an appearance, coming into the new thread, right on time, on their cankles, their wonkey eye and brushing their snaggle tooth.
==========================================================================
ROTFLMFAO that was classic Observer2 :lol:

Not all Brad fans are crazy, some of them yes, they hate angelina and hate any woman he’s with at the time.

Jolie is a very beautiful woman .

coalharbourqt @ 07/15/2007 at 11:15 pm

Missouri Fan – Brava! Brava! Well done on your video – love the music and some of the pics I haven’t even seen before :-) I hope you are having a lovely summer and enjoying your garden.

Hi Lady G – yes, finally! It was one of the hottest days of the year but I survived. How are you doing? Having a good summer?

no longer a lurker – are you freakin’ serious???!!! Holy crap! That must be some kind of record. I hope it wasn’t too ugly – those long threads tend to get pretty nasty in my experience. So much for catching up on reading – LOL! I hope all is well in your world! :-)

Nice pics of Angie and Shiloh – I hope JJ adds some more pics of the rest of the fam.!

is it me or does she look so much like Jenifer A, in that shot with shi,her hair,and the style look so much alike now that its almost blonde

Sheeit! Brad better start carrying Shiloh! Shiloh almost looks likes she outweighs Angelina! lol!

——————-
Didn’t you heard? Brad doesn’t care about angelina’s health! he doesn’t give a **** unless his PR is affected.

I really like the suit Angelina is wearing and clicked on the other photos in the link and liked those suits too. S t John isn’t selling in my country – I think it is almost exclusively a US label. I wasn’t very familiar with s t john knits but I really like that classic looks they have in this seasons clothing. I assume it is for the winter line or is it for autumn?

It does cost a lot of money – 1000 to 2000 but I TRULY think that if the fabric and cut are good and you look the BEST that you can look and are COMFORTABLE in the suit like that, it is a worth while investment for the big meeting or interview. I’m a great believer in wearing an outfit where you feel absolutely certain you are looking your best and feel very comfortable, then you can forget about it and focus on getting your message across – as in HIRE ME or PROMOTE ME!!!

I know there’s been lots of discussions about Victoria and I read somewhere that she was actually quite funny and poking fun at herself in her 1 hour special. It’s good that she can laugh at herself. Anyway, the reason for my mentioning Vicky is because she always looks like she is uncomfortable in her clothing. As if she has to suck in her stomach and hold her posture – know what I mean? It might explain the sucking on a lemon and having stick up her a s s look on her face and body everytime that Passing Through had commented on in the last thread. LOL.

Shiloh is BIG @ 07/15/2007 at 11:18 pm

Shiloh is growing fast and she’s quite big. It looks like she may inherit those GIANT genes of the Voights.

Jon Voight is 6 ft 4 in.
Jamie is taller than John Voight.
Angie is taller than her mother.
Brad is about 6 ft.

I just don’t understand the losers who sit around and wait for a new thread to start their sick mess over and over again.

These people are either paid or just don’t have a freaking life.

I was a fan of both parties before they got together and love them even more since they’ve found each other. Love conquers all. And the Jolie-Pitts don’t give a rat’s ass how you feel about them!!!!!

Live and let live people. To all the losers who hide behind their computer screens with all the hateful comments needs to look in the mirror and ask themselves, Who am I to judge?

And to the Bampzs fans, stop falling for the same BS over and over on each thread. I have lurked here for almost two years now and posted sporadically. Let’s just keep this thread about BAMPZS and forget about the X, her fans and employees.

Peace!!!! Cancun here I come………..

To Post 87 Susie ~ Well, truth be told, neither would I. But you never know when an opportunity will come up! I could live in my comfy Levi’s but office attire gets in the way so I can go to work.

I love this family!! They just make my day!

Coal- hi *waving*, congrats on the move. :lol:

julia weinstein @ 07/15/2007 at 11:21 pm

Beautiful, they make me smile when i see their photos. :)

Mzslil- make sure you drive to Play Del Carmen while you are there. It is a great, small funky town with alot of younger Europeans and the beaches aren’t commercial like Cancun, very cute! :)

fashionista @ 07/15/2007 at 11:22 pm

St. John used to have the nasty reputation of being the knockoffs to Chanel couture. Kelly Gray’s appearance in the company’s ads rolled eyes. I think for Angelina they are doing special couture outfits for her. These are not of interest to the traditional St. John customer. They rely on those Chanel-y type suits. Angelina is used to showcase the more creative designs of St. John.

What I would like to see is Angelina be the spokesperson for Christian Louboutin shoes. She wears them all the time. They are one of my faves.

Nice pictures.

The X fans will probably start yammering that they will never buy a Saint John’s suit after they put Angelina in their advertisements. It’s a moot point anyway because the typical X fan wouldn’t be able to fit into a Saint John’s suit. Saint Johns doesn’t make clothes in plus sizes.

I don’t even see Shiloh well.What they are talking about?

Thank You Jared.. You are such a Prince..
I adore The Jolie-Pitt’s and I adore You….
Cheers Jared!!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Amen. I usually just lurk but the fans who keep conversing with the trolls and keep the past alive are just as tiring. There is so much other stuff to talk about like where the family is going.

They might be going to France since Angie said on the Daily Show that they were going to Prague, France, and Pakistan.
My thinking is that they’ll go France, come back to shoot in Chicago, then be off for a while, then Brad will shoot his movie, and then they’ll go to Pakistan.

Anyone know the schedule? I suck at remembering dates.

Thanks Susie…..Playa Del Carmen is on our to do list.

I am curious….what is considered a plus size in the fashionista world? The average American women is a size 12, so would they be barred from this line of clothing?

Absolutely correct. The typical X fan looks like this.

Why are they going to Pakistan? is it for a UNHCR mission?

My mom used to wear Saint Johns alot and I have them all now and they are still perfect and fashionable, like Chanel.
********************************************************************

ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE YOU!! I think I’d sell my soul for a Saint John’s suit! :mrgreen:

Just kidding. :-) Wear them with pride. You’ll pass them on to your granddaughter and they will never go out of style.

Hey, my first time to post but my 2 months lurking in here….just wanna say thanks Jared for this cool job to share us the updates about the supercouple. But glad to know Angie will have time to take care of the kids more that she’s done filming for Wanted.

Syd…..I totally agree.

I am hoping that Brad and Angie take the kids to the beach. Z loves the ocean.

Julianne- I hear you, I am a sweats girl! Have to be. I think that St. John is too old for me anyways, it would age me although I have seen my sister in them with a button or 2 undone and it looked good. Oh well, until we start dressing for the park I am out of luck :lol:

Mzslil- oh good, it such a cute town and the tourists are a different breed there, very European and hip :)

#129
LOL, I think the average X fan shops at Lane Bryant’s.

I hope Angie & Brad don’t on Beckham’s thread we don’t need anther triangle because we make Jennifer popular than she was,we don’t have time for people who are looking for attention.No more hit for anyone.

Cancun is WILD! have fun, I prefer Punta cana but cancun is great. Hope you enjoy the tequila and Corona beer cuz you’re going to have it even at breakfast

Wow, Post 129 ~ that was a really hateful fan in that photo. I will now say LOL at your post. I try to champion women not fitting into size charts in order to be beautiful or attractive. But after seeing how that fan was behaving, she couldn’t be considered beautiful, as that begins in one’s heart. And that woman had one UGLY heart, for sure.

Does anyone know where the Changeling will be filmed?

Tequila and Corona for breakfast…..lol. I don’t drink alcohol.

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

That’s a good question. Actually, I heard the average American woman is a size 14. I know a lot of high-end designers refuse to market any of their designs over a size 12. Ann Taylor is a mid-price chain and they only recently started stocking clothes up to size 16. But they still don’t sell plus sizes.

I saw a store in NYC last year that advertised “REAL clothes for REAL women”. They had some very nice models in the window. I went in there and they didn’t have a thing under a size ten. I was like, wait a minute — us single-digit sizes are REAL women, too!

Matt Drudge @ 07/15/2007 at 11:44 pm

Hilarious! On his show they are saying that the whole Posh & Becks hype is completely manufatured by the media and Simon Fuller, creator of Pop Idol/American Idol. Simon was responsible for bringing David B to the US. Will the trick work? They don’t think so.

In addition, David B is an athlete. He should only be showcased in the sports media but they pass him off as Hollywood. Yes they are famous but in their own sports world. Posh’s equivalent is Eva Longoria. Trophy wives who work in entertainment industry married to top athletes.

Hey Lilian- If I remember correctly, you live in Australia. If so, can you tell me anything about Sydney and places of interest. I will be there in september and am trying to get as much information as possible.

I hope you are still online.

Angelina said in her MTV interview that it will start filming in LA this October.

Jill ~ I wasn’t really sure if it was size 12 or 14. I guess the designers have researched what sells to plus size and what doesn’t. It’s funny that the store in NYC depicted a real woman to be at least a size 10! A real woman can be any size, we all know that!

She could be size 16 or more .

________________________________________

yes and she also wore them in Mr.& Mrs. Smith. You can see the red soles clearly during the last scenes of Brad & Angelina at the marriage counselor. She swings one of her crossed legs up and down and you catch the red sole of the shoe she’s wearing.

Another question to Lylian. When are schools out for a long recess in Australia?

150 Lurker Opinion – Thank you for that answer. That’s cool, they can stay in their LA home while filming.

They may not be able to go to Pakistan. Angelina said to France first and maybe then to Pakistan. It is very unsettled over there right now with some fighting occuring in the capital and the border with Afganistan. They may not be permitted to enter.

Shiloh has some long legs. She does take after her Daddy as he was a little chubby dub as a toddler. Zahara was also a little chubby dub last year in Paris with a little round face and look at her now. I remember pixs of them in Paris sitting near the window in a cafe and Brad was giving Zahara a bottle while Angelina and Maddox looked on.

Hope they enjoy their vacation. Read that Angelina will be in Chicago the 1st week of August for final Wanted scenes, and Brad goes back to work the end of August. Where do Burn After Reading and State of Play shoot? Angelina will be in LA in October I think for the Changeling or am I wrong? Isn’t Maddox’s birthday near the beginning of August? Maybe they will celebrate at Chuckie Cheese in Chicago. LOL. Maddox’s last two birthdays have been celebrated in SB.

151 Julianne :
LOL, I thought it was kind of funny. I think that store was opened by people who felt there was a need for stylish clothes for ladies who wear plus sizes. It must be kind of disheartening to go into stores like Bloomingdales or Saks or Bendels and not find anything stylish in larger sizes. I’m fortunate to wear a single-digit size; I can always find something in the stores. But some designers seem to want to punish large-size women for being large. That attitude totally sucks. You don’t have to be stick-thin to be attractive. Good-looking women come in all sizes.

Think about it.... @ 07/15/2007 at 11:59 pm

———————————————————————–
Very true…I’ve been a fan of his since Interview with a Vampire and have shared in all the major sites about him throughout the years seeing this very thing. Some ‘fans’ can’t accept him with any woman and will talk sh*t about whoever she is. It happened with both his exes.

Personally, I like him with Angie very much as he appears to be very content with his life and the family they have. He doesn’t seem to be in search of ‘something’ anymore…part of that is maturity in life experience and the other is finding a person that fits the way he wants to live his life. As a true fan, that’s all that matters to me.

#29 … ITA (LOL)!!!!

Tequila and Corona for breakfast…..lol. I don’t drink alcohol

Me neither until I went to cancun, 2 days later I was drinking beer at 10:00am and having cockteils with little umbrellas at the beach the whole day!

I have never seen this picture before. The girl holding the picture is really ugly inside out. I feel sorry for her.

Breath taking*

Brad pitt is hot 2 look at and also to listen to, but sadly I can’t say the same thing for David B.

Brad got bedroom voice.

157 Jill: I agree with you. My efforts through dieting and alot of walking on my treadmill helped me shed just about 30 lbs. and get into a size 10. It’s been really interesting see how people treat me differently. Still the same person inside, but our society is still so fixated on the visual image that we project, and it’s evident from comments from both men and women.

What is IT? A Buffalo, Ape, Elephant, what? Whatever IT is, someone needs to call the local Zoo to come get IT. IT would scare the h*ll out of me if I passed IT on the streets. IT must be related to fugly ugly since IT looks like a man.

Cancun….too funny.

I’ve been tested before. My friends took me to TJ (Tijuana, Mexico) on my 20th birthday and I survived without a drink. Drinks were $1 a piece back then, I was the only sober member of the group that night. We were almost detained @ the border because my friends were in no shape to drive back to LA….lol.

IMDB says Burn After Reading bigins filming in August and Dirty Tricks begins November. That movie hasquite a cast list.

pattong beach @ 07/16/2007 at 12:31 am

You can find Saint John’s clothing at Nordstrom.

I think the average American size woman is 6 or 8 not 14.

Saint John clothing doesnt fit me. I prefer the brand “free people” or “miss 60″. I also shop at Banana Republic for work clothes

I don’t think Brad is part of Dirty Tricks. He’s a producer of the movie but not one of the cast members. IMDB is not very accurate.

Do you know if Brd has any other movie after “State of Play”? Is he taking the next year off, to?

State of Play begins shooting in late November in Washington DC.

Burn After Reading must not be a long shoot for Brad as The Changeling begins shooting in October in LA and they have been alternating work and parenting. Also Brad is scheduled to participate in Habitat for Humanity with Jimmy Carter again in LA in
October.

Average american woman is a size 12-14.

1998 Gussie

The whole interview:

American cinema’s most beautiful mug returns to the screen with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

- In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?
- Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Besides, I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

-Yourself, you do not work like that?
- No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

- How did things go with Soderbergh?
- At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been informed: there wont definitely be a Ocean fourteen. It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

- Do you regret having done any of your movies?
- More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

- You, unemployed?
- Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

- Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?
- Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a lost bullet was terrific to me. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

- You’re a working fiend…
- No, not really…

- But you say it yourself, you film a lot…
- A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it

- If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?
- To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?
-You do not? (Laughs). Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

- What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?
- If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

- By whom would you like to be directed?
/b>- By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick , with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Daiamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

- It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…
-True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

- And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…
- (Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

- You don’t love any other super heroes?
- I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me i that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things there?
Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

- Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?
- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

- The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?
- No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful reward comes above all from the public.

- May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?
(Laughs) You may always try.

- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!
- She is not one to show her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?
Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

- Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?
- I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

- How have you managed?,
By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.

- Actually, in keeping with your friend George Clooney, you are also tremendously worried about the state of our planet…
- Of course you’re going to say it is a bit hypocritical to proclaim oneself an environmentalist and to travel by plane, even if for professional reasons. But on my daily life I drive a small electric car, very powerful for that matter. I am very interested in the G8 Summits and often organize, as we did in Cannes, fundraisers to help the most destitute or for Darfur. To hang around artists such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and the world debt with the chief decision-makers has also strengthened my beliefs. The need to inform and the urgency of these problems remain vital. I’m going to get more and more involved in the years to come. I’d love to have done something good in my life!

As always, Angie is absolutely stunning!
Much as I would also like to see it in colour, there is a timeless quality to black and white, which goes perfectly with Angie’s timeless beauty.

St John hired AJ in order to move their image a bit way from ‘ladies who lunch” to reach the daughters and granddaughters of their core customers. Those knit pieces are extremely well made, so they are great to pass on, but in the last few seasons, they have had some more youthful colors and have changed up some of styling in the lines, but you can always get the classic suit. I was a big fan before they signed Angie, but I love her ads. I actually was a bit surprised since up to now they haven’t used the classic suits on AJ in the ads. But even so the lines are classic — and so is Ms. Jolie.

I hope they have a nice vacay, but I will admit it is hard to wean myself of the photographic signs of life we’ve been treated to on almost a daily basis since they went to Prague. Stuck with Zanessa and the Beckhams — seems like the dogdays of summer to me!

When I started seeing the ‘Mr. Smith’ haircut everywhere after it released in Summer of ’05 (and that style has continued unabated), it was confirmed — now just look at JJ’s blog today…you’ve got this young’un Zac wearing Brad’s Fedora, and you’ve got David ‘Squeaky’ Beckham wearing Brad’s close brush cut (and dying it platinum – yet another shout out to Brad). They all need to get off Brad’s jock….but then again, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

There was an article (I think in the Washington Post) of the director checking out sites to shoot in the city. So the movie is going forward but I have not read who else might be in the movie.

The X fans will probably start yammering that they will never buy a Saint John’s suit after they put Angelina in their advertisements. It’s a moot point anyway because the typical X fan wouldn’t be able to fit into a Saint John’s suit. Saint Johns doesn’t make clothes in plus sizes.

_________________________________________________________________________

Jill, I don’t even think X can carry off Saint John’s suits and style unless they come in khaki shorts and white crop top..the ones that ensure the nipples will show….. X is the trashy beach bum class type, wonder how many of her fans has nipple enhancement surgery….hmm..

Taraji P. Henson on Benjamin Button
From Hustle & Flow to Brad Pitt’s Mom
by Fred Topel | July 15, 2007
Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett headline David Fincher’s upcoming “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” Even superstars need moms though, and Taraji P. Henson is playing Benjamin (Pitt)’s mom, Queenie.

“I age from 26 to 71,” said Henson. “It’s early 1900s mixed with modern times and flashbacks. I play Brad Pitt’s mother because he’s born with this rare aging disease, left on my doorstep and I adopt him like any good southern woman would. My character runs an old folks home and a lot of the extras were senior citizens.”

The story has Pitt age backwards, and mommy is there most of the time. “She’s with the beginning, she teaches Benjamin Button everything he needs to know. Then there’s a part where he goes off into the world to become a man, then he comes back. He comes back home to momma. So there’s one little segment I’m not in but pretty much the whole movie.”

It sounds like a more whimsical film than the usual Fincher fare, but the dark director compensated for that. “He’s very dark and he’s very upset that he’s made a beautiful film. He’s walking around, ‘Ah, I can’t believe I made a ****ing beautiful movie. Rrr, rrr.” He still tried to make it dark. He had the smoke machine. Trust me, it’s still dark where it can be, but it’s beautiful. Beautifully dark.”

And as for aging, Henson enjoyed seeing herself in old age makeup. “I just laughed because it’s going to happen. It’s going to happen and I embrace it.”

ITA, Angelina’s exes have always been supportive of her and it’s amazing that they continues to still be in awe and love her after the relationship ended.. I think it’s also a reflection of how good of a person she is and genuinely caring and honest her relationships has been.

Unfortunately Brad exes has been one cheating fishstick who didn’t realised how lucky she was to have the man proclaim her to be ‘the love of his life’ and one manipulative media wh*re who uses him to further her career and push him into the marriage that he did not want in the first place, he just wanted to be her friend.

Cliniqua:
That advert for Maddox lookalikes is creepy. AJ is a movie star; she is a public figure who is recognizable. While she is entitled to privacy, her likeness is in the public domain. Like Cher, Madonna, Marilyn, et al., impersonators are going to be in the game. Although she doesn’t sing or anything, (all the doubles I have seen in the past year have been hooked up with an X impersonator – — rolling eyes) but people gotta make a living.

That said, lining up the Maddox (or Kingston, or Suri or Grier or Moses) impersonator is seamy. Those kids are kids, and using his likeness for commercial purposes seems somehow unethical.

#67 Jill: The difference between Angelina and X is that Angelina could put on a burlap sack and make it look like a Saint John’s suit. X would make a Saint John’s suit look like a burlap sack.

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

Hahahaha! This is very funny but this I think is very true. Besides, Angie “wears” any outfit not the other way around. In contrast, the clothes “wear” X instead.

Isnt the “Mr. Smith haircut” called a Caesar? ahhh hasnt that haircut been around before Brads great great grandfather was born. I recall it being called the Clooney cut back when George Clooney rocked it in the 90s on ER. But I guess Brad wore it before then.

“Brad’s Fedora” dont tell me he invented that to and made it popular. ROTFLMMFAO

manufacturing heroes
Why ‘A Mighty Heart’ Is A Cruel Failure

Asra Nomani, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who’s the “supporting character” in “A Mighty Heart,” the Angelina Jolie film about journalists Danny and Marianne Pearl and Danny’s murder in Pakistan, helped out on making the picture true to life. She made sure the cast even got the right notebooks that she and Danny used. But when she saw the glittery press photos out of the film’s premiere at Cannes, she had a “duh” moment. The marketing, the PR, the celebrities: All of it was absolutely the antithesis of Danny, she realized. The studio publicists brought a screener of the film to her house in West Virginia: the on-screen Danny just looked so flat. So in an email to a producer of the film early this month, Nomani wrote: “I’m not going to be attending the premiere because, upon reflection, I just don’t believe in the movie and the mythology of its marketing and PR campaign.”

In this excerpt from her email, she explains her thinking.

As much as the talking points say that this movie is for Danny and that everyone made the movie for the right reasons, I don’t at all feel that it is for Danny or that noble intentions underly this movie. That’s just my opinion, and I don’t mean to offend you, but I’ve just heard that soundbite one too many times.

In your role as producer, you may think I’m full of B.S. in seeing a reality that isn’t the one that you’re portraying on the big screen. I am told there is hardly a person who thinks too highly of Hollywood’s depiction of reality. But even knowing that intellectually, I cannot in good conscience enable an enterprise to me that represents to me little more than “astroturf reality.”

Maybe I’ve read a little too much Joseph Campbell, but I think that our society has become quite sick in the way that we manufacture heroes out of tragedy — Guliani, for example, being a hero when he was just doing his job as mayor — and to me the industry that supports this mythmaking is not one in which I want to participate. To me, the participation of the media industry in creating myths out of reality is most distressing.

The truth is that I am sorry that I ever got involved in the movie making from the beginning. I was naive in putting trust in the process, and I shouldn’t have been but my head was also spinning post-Karachi in trying to support Mariane as much as I could. To me, Danny had left her at my house, and I had a duty to him to take care of her.

I tried throughout the filmmaking to help because I hoped a greater good would come from this enterprise. In my heart, I don’t think a greater good emerges, despite all of the allegiances with reporting organizations, etc., because at the end of the day this movie could never have happened without the tragic sacrifice of Danny’s life, and my greatest sadness is that I don’t think that the movie comes close to even capturing Danny’s real life charisma and charm.

As the details of the movie have sunk into my conscience over the last couple of weeks, I realized that the film made me miss Danny even more as a friend, because he was so not present for me on the screen.

JETS, NANNIES, GUARDS AND PREDICTIONS

-The trail of controversies left by Pitt and Jolie when they came to shoot in India

BEHIND THE SCENES

There are too many full stops in India, as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt discovered when they came down to shoot for Michael Winterbottom’s film, A Mighty Heart, based on the death of American journalist, Daniel Pearl. From the time of their arrival in the country, the couple — christened by the media as Brangelina — left a trail of controversies. These would not be forgotten in a hurry.

Brangelina flew from Mumbai to Pune (where the shooting was supposed to take place) in a private plane, provided by the industrialist, Gautam Singhania. They reached Pune, at around three in the afternoon, with their three children and a fleet of nannies.

The twist in the tale came shortly thereafter. Instead of asking for security from the police, they preferred to have their own men around for protection. It was around this time that intelligence reports about a possible terror strike in Pune had reached the police. However, Pitt and Jolie seemed to have little cause to worry, although they gave Indians enough reasons to lose sleep.

The Pitt-Jolie clan then checked into Le Meridien hotel, where five suites had been booked for them. But they were unhappy with the five-star arrangements and preferred a separate bungalow for themselves so that their children could run around freely.

The security frenzy did not die down so easily. Soon, the couple’s “own men” were parading in the corridors of the Le Meridien. While the celebrity family occupied suites 519 to 526 of the hotel, the entire fifth floor was sealed off from the rest of the guests.

There were no instructions, however, given to the chef regarding the food that would be served to the esteemed guests. While Jolie and Pitt were eagerly declaring their enjoyment of the “sights and sounds” of India, they were not quite ready to tolerate the smell of Indians so easily. Between shooting for long hours every day, they were eating their meals at one of the three bungalows rented for the shooting in Pune. Their fellow diners, who joined them at High Table, were the foreign crew of the film. The Indians ate downstairs. Clearly, the visual and olfactory delights of India, for the couple, stopped at the dining table.

The climax came at the Anjuman-E-Islam school where Jolie’s security guards clashed with parents who had come to fetch their children at the end of the day. It appeared that these parents were given no idea about the day’s special activities inside the premises, until the guards started barking at them. “You bloody Indians! Who are you?” one of them had allegedly shouted, gesturing with his hand that these Indians’ throats will be slit if they didn’t behaved themselves. We don’t know what the fate of these people would have been had they not listened to the bodyguards. After all, one of these security men had manhandled a British “paparazzi” shortly before this incident.

Jolie and Pitt left the country with the ominous words of a Mumbai astrologer, Anand Soni, ringing in their ears: Pitt would go back to Jennifer Aniston and “his marital life may not be blissful at all”. And, while Jolie’s career would grow rapidly till October 2007, her husband’s will be successful till 2008.

It appears that their time is running out rather fast!

Angelina Jolie Worship Run Amuck

By Kim Jaynes
Jul 12, 2007

So where do we start with Angie’s celeb worship? “Angelina Jolie Dies for Our Sins,” screams Esquire. “A very beautiful woman who sees herself as the underdog becomes very famous. Because of her fame, she suffers. Because of her suffering, she becomes even more famous. Then she becomes virtuous. Very, very virtuous, blah, blah, blah Tom Junod writes.

Ron Rosenbaum of Slate was not impressed, “In the history of fawning gentlemen’s-magazine profiles,” Rosenbaum wrote last week in the _ magazine Slate, “there is unlikely to be a more ludicrous example than the profile in the July Esquire of — yes — Angelina Jolie, which spends many thousands of words ( about six thousand) and invokes grave national tragedies to prove to us that Angelina Jolie is not just a good woman, not just an enlightened humanitarian, not just a suffering victim of celebrity, not just strong and brave, but, we are told, ‘the best woman in the world.’ ”

***

Why is Rosenbaum outraged? Read this: “In post-9/11 America, Angelina Jolie is the best woman in the world because she is the most famous woman in the world — because she is not like you and me.” Uh-huh. Jolie tries to play it up bigger than she is, and she thrived on that for a while.

She travels the world extensively in private jets, lives in multi-million dollar homes and lectures on poverty. She charges millions for photos of her latest adopt an orphan program and then heads to work on yet another film and hands the third world child off to a nanny. The hypocrisy is thick.

***

I watched her latest film hoping for the “Oscar Winning” performance the movie reviewers of the world had promised. If she is even nominated for that performance it will be only for the type of worship put forth by so many writers including Junod. But somewhere along the way it appears that her adoring public has abandoned her.

She once held mystery. How did Jolie steal Brad Pitt away from America’s sweetheart Jennifer Aniston? Oh how the mighty hypocrite has fallen.

A Jordanian salesman who tried to use an identity card with a photo of Brad Pitt was on trial this week in the United Arab Emirates the Gulf News reported. The 29 year old salesman allegedly forged the card with Pitts photograph and an Arabic name in an attempt to steal more than $22,000 left unclaimed at an exchange house where his brother worked as a teller the newspaper reported. The man who told the police he did not know who Pitt was said in court that he downloaded the photo from the Internet. Prosecutors in Dubai charged the man with forgery and embezzlement.

#227 kind:

You’re quoting and giving credence to National Ledger, the scum of the internet world, the website that completely hates Angelina Jolie, no matter what she does?

AMH: A propaganda film, pro-muslim

“A Mighty Heart,” starring Angelina Jolie, is yet another propaganda film masquerading as an action drama. The film is presumably about Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter kidnapped, tortured, and gruesomely beheaded by Islamists who made sure the grisly video of their handiwork was viewed by millions on the Internet.

I remember that heart-stopping video. Before his decapitation, Pearl admits that he is a Jew (as if that were a crime) and that his parents are Jews – in fact, he tells us, perhaps gratuitously, that the Israelis named a street in Israel after his grandfather. The video functioned as a form of psychological terror. Many Westerners got the message and have behaved in an appeasing, dhimmi-like manner ever since.

We only see a snippet of this video in “A Mighty Heart.” The video is essentially missing – as is Daniel Pearl himself. What we see, instead, are Hollywood’s “good Indians.” This time they are Pakistani Muslim policemen who only want to help find Pearl’s kidnappers.

In Cannes, the film was given a standing ovation. Variety’s reporter, Justin Chang, congratulated the British director, Michael Winterbottom, for finding a way to interest people in what is, after all, a rather “harrowing” story. Chang also praised the film’s “utmost restraint” – which, in my view, is itself the ultimate in dhimmi behavior. Indeed, the film does not condemn Islamic terrorism at all and only once whispers the name “Al Qaeda.”

Predictably, New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis praised the film precisely for its (politically correct) political vision. While she did note that “Mr. Pearl was a casualty of Islamist hatred of Western civilization” she also wrote: “What distinguishes ‘A Mighty Heart’ is its assertion that politics and ideology play a part in poverty and terrorism, in the way some men exploit human misery in the name of God and righteousness.”

Thus, terrorists are merely religious people who are trying to resist “poverty” the best way they can. Dargis was careful to protest the briefly shown scenes of torture – not Danny Pearl’s torture, but that of those Muslims who were part of the plot to kidnap and behead him: “Mr. Pearl would probably have been appalled that this outrage was committed on his behalf; the point is, we should be too.”

It is not surprising that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) hosted the premiere of the film in Los Angeles. The political story line is quite to its liking.

The film also insinuates that Pearl himself was at least somewhat to blame for his own beheading. He was, after all, warned several times not to meet with Sheikh Giladi except in public, and yet, instead of deciding not to meet him at all, chose to pursue the story.

Pearl, the film suggests, was obviously naive or filled with hubris. He did not want to understand that Jewish-Americans in Pakistan were endangered prey. Heedlessly, he followed his story as if Al Qaeda had not declared jihad against infidels, as if he was immune to the consequences of such a declaration.

(Dargis, in her review, described the Pearls as “a little reckless… fired up by a shared belief that journalism could help make the world better, a chokingly poignant idea in these shockingly cynical times.”)

The message is clear: Salman Rushdie knew he had to go into hiding and many Muslim and ex-Muslim intellectuals publish only under pseudonyms. Did Pearl, as well as Jewish-American businessman Nicholas Berg, who was also decapitated on video, really think the rules of jihad did not apply to them?

How special do Americans and Jews think they are? If Sunnis and Shia Muslims kill each other, honor-murder their own women with impunity, and blow up each other’s mosques – do Americans and Jews think that special treatment is reserved for them because they value life more or hold their own lives dear?

“A Mighty Heart” gave me a mighty headache. It is outrageous that big money in Hollywood, and in film studios all across Europe and the Middle East, is funding so many visual Big Lies which will only continue to confuse and weaken Westerners who should be learning the truth about jihad before it is too late.

Dr. Phyllis Chesler, a frequent contributor to The Jewish Press, is the author of many works including the bestseller “Women and Madness” (1972), “The New Anti-Semitism” (2003) and “The Death of Feminism: What’s Next in the Struggle for Women’s Freedom” (2005). Her forthcoming book is titled “The Islamification of America.”

Is white the new black?

Movies Features By Orville Lloyd Douglas

With the significant lack of leading roles for black women in Hollywood movies, Angelina Jolie seems like a strange choice for the lead in A Mighty Heart
With the significant lack of leading roles for black women in Hollywood movies, Angelina Jolie seems like a strange choice for the lead in A Mighty Heart

Angelina Jolie is the “new” black these days. From making Africa her new crusade to adopting an African daughter and talking about racial harmony on CNN, Jolie’s so-called altruism is her way to profit from the image of blackness.

The new black is also white actors like Jolie in blackface. Jolie is currently starring in the biopic A Mighty Heart as Mariane Pearl, the widow of murdered Wall Street Journal writer Daniel Pearl. Jolie is white, and the real Mariane Pearl is of mixed heritage. (According to news reports, her father is Dutch-Jewish and her mother was Cuban-black-Hispanic-Chinese.) In the film, Jolie’s skin is darkened to appear more African and she is wearing a kinky wig.

Some people argue that since Pearl is of mixed heritage and not dark-skinned, Jolie is acceptable in the role. However, the symbolism of blackface is not about whether a white actor takes on a dark skin tone or light. It is the implicit message being sent that black women in Hollywood–which is slow to capitalize on the bankable quality of black female stars–can be replaced by white women. This certainly isn’t because of a lack of talent.

Movies aren’t just entertainment. There are cultural values embedded in the subtext of films. Movie stars are mythologies of hierarchy created by publicists, studios, and news media.

The social constructions of the star-system archetype arose from the days of slavery. Hollywood’s consistent message is that black women are less profitable than white women. The standard by which North American women of all races are measured is the white female: feminine, beautiful, fragile, and perfect. By contrast, Queen Latifah’s mammy performance in the 2002 film Chicago as Matron Mama Morton and her 2003 Bringing Down the House role portray black women as aggressive, hostile, and unattractive.

The last major dramatic film for a black actress was the interracial drama Monster’s Ball. Although Halle Berry won an Oscar, it was degrading: Berry’s character, Leticia Musgrove, was depicted as sexually loose, the aggressor in the interracial sex scene, with the line “Make me feel good” delivered with a sneer.

Such scenes shattered some of the respect the black community had for Berry. By contrast in A Mighty Heart, Angelina Jolie’s character is a pillar of strength, a woman demanding to know what happened to her husband.

Since Hollywood is concerned about maximizing its profits, movies must be palatable to a mass market. Jolie was cast as A Mighty Heart’s female lead because she is considered an international draw, not for racial accuracy.

Black feminist bell hooks points out in Outlaw Culture, her groundbreaking book on films in pop culture, that we are controlled by a “White Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy”. Hooks believes we must be “enlightened witnesses” and be cognizant that we are conditioned to accept whiteness as the centre of the universe.

Black women have a long history of being typecast in film primarily as sex objects or maids. A Mighty Heart was the chance for a black actress to shine in a film that showcased the female lead as a three-dimensional person with complex emotions.

A more serious issue is the paucity of leading roles for black women in Hollywood. A Mighty Heart also tackles the rarely portrayed interracial relationship, in this case an interracial marriage between a black woman and a white man. Jolie’s presence in the film is a hindrance as it obscures and ultimately eliminates the real Mariane Pearl altogether. (Women have also asked why Mariane Pearl would allow a white woman to take the female lead in A Mighty Heart.)

Jolie consistently portrays herself as a Hollywood liberal who is against racism. Yet her superficial insensitivity to the plight of black women suggests an unwillingness to be challenged about her own values. What will she teach her daughter about white cultural domination?

After spending a considerable amount of time on these blogs, my impression is that most bloggers on the entertainment websites are women.

It is sad to see that women readily and eagerly put down other women.
This is born of Jealousy, underachievement in life and misery.

Angelina Jolie is an exemplary woman who has done more than her share contributing positively to the world. She strives to make the world a better place. What she gets in return for this is alot of insults, mad slinging and outrageous demands from the media and ordinary folk alike.

I always wonder, what makes people stoop to that level of bitterness, anger and stupidity as to talk and write evil things about someone who you have no personal knowledge of. Are you venting as a reflection of your miserable life and think that by trying to put her down it makes your pain less severe? If that is the case then some of you bloggers, E news, ted c and the rest need a therapist.

I can not claim to know the intensity of their affection for each other with Brad but all I know is that for now, they look happy and committed to each other. Whether or not this is the case is their business. Why do people living in glass houses constantly keep throwing stones.

Most people pyschoanalysing their relationship barely have a relationship in their lives and yet want to set standards on how these two people have to look at each other, how they should dress, comb their hair, hold their kids. Come on now people, get a life. I enjoy reading about their positive contributions to society and their affections for each other (my opinion).

(to the haters)If you dislike them soo then stay away from spewing soo much hate online. Editorials such as L & S are written but bitter jilted men and women who can not stand to see a geniunely happy couple.

Stay away from the dark side haters!!!!!!!!

213 huh say what? : 07/16/2007 at 1:56 am

EVERYONE is COPYING BRAD!!! Wow, Brad really is a trendsetter and style icon. When I started seeing the ‘Mr. Smith’ haircut everywhere after it released in Summer of ‘05 (and that style has continued unabated), it was confirmed — now just look at JJ’s blog today…you’ve got this young’un Zac wearing Brad’s Fedora, and you’ve got David ‘Squeaky’ Beckham wearing Brad’s close brush cut (and dying it platinum – yet another shout out to Brad). They all need to get off Brad’s jock….but then again, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

_____________________________________

Isnt the “Mr. Smith haircut” called a Caesar? ahhh hasnt that haircut been around before Brads great great grandfather was born. I recall it being called the Clooney cut back when George Clooney rocked it in the 90s on ER. But I guess Brad wore it before then.

“Brad’s Fedora” dont tell me he invented that to and made it popular. ROTFLMMFAO
=======
The Mr.SMith haircut was just a damn shaved head. Many people have had that cut before Pitt. Lmao

Lmao @ the Brad fans trying to find negative Angelina articles.

Jolie is the best fit @ 07/16/2007 at 2:33 am

To Tiger Says:

the thing that I have a hard time believing about Jen and Brad is how they could be REALLY IN LOVE but not show that by PUTTING EFFORT INTO THEIR MARRIAGE IN ORDER FOR IT TO LAST or by not turning THAT LOVE INTO SOMETHING TANGIBLE, REAL AND LASTING. i.e no kids.

It is like they never tried harder

For instance, they were rarely together nor share hobbies or do activities together. When they felt like a PDA, they did when the spotlight was on them(red carpet) then they kissed passionately and hugged for all to see but then when the spotlight was gone – each went back to his/her own thing. i.e. he worked and worked in another city and she worked and worked in another. It is well known long distance between couple DOES NOT ADD but SUBTRACT from the marriage. Then you read their interviews and you don’t get a sense of commitment but more like two people living together..each doing his/her thing…NONE WANTS TO COMPROMISE for THE OTHER…but they are married!

Then you’ve got Jolie. Is willing to put her career on hold to be in one place..close by Brad so that not only does she look after the kids as a mother but that Brad is also able to be close to his kids. And he in turn does the same for her when she goes to work. She rides motor-cycles with him and she is interested in his hobbies. Learn something new there. Furthermore, Jolie won’t fail to show her deep admiration and respect for Brad. And even though Brad is as private as usual when it comes to these matters of the heart and his women, his actions thus far are a FAR cry from before – really prove his COMMITMENT, LOVE AND WILLINGNESS TO COMPROMISE in this RELATIONSHIP than in the previous one. The man put his ******* career on the line to be with this woman. Many would have just fcuked her and ran away. But he didn’t. He is much better than that.
You read how Jolie describe Brad – it is more than her saying outright *I love* but she dives deep into details. Most of all, you get a sense she really admire him for THE MAN HE IS and NOT BECAUSE HE IS BRAD PITT. In short, Jolie makes it a point to highlight what is *inside* the man and not the outside and superficial things like he is CUTE, GORGEOUS, A SEXY MAN. For a man as private as Brad, I rather love reading these detailed and well thoughout comments from Jolie than point blank *I love him* or *he is the sexiest man*. The latter is all I got from Gwyneth and Jen. Jolie blows me away. I get the sense that she KNOWS this man more than his previous significant others did.

Jolie’s comments about Brad ADD AND NOT SUBTRACT from the man that is Brad Pitt. He already had this side of him but none of his past women, in my opinion, brought it out as Jolie does. It was always about themselves FIRST then Brad Pitt , the man. i.e. He was kinda presented by his women as arm candy – i.e. like they are saying – see ladies, I got me Brad Pitt, the Sexiest Man in Hollywood…yes that’s right. Impressive, isn’t. I got me the Brad Pitt. Look at me. Look at me. *fans self* LOL.

Jolie does not do that and this is why I think she is by far the best fit for him.

I really like ths post.

Too beautiful to be understood
May 06, 2006 Edition 1

Chrissy Iley

The first time I saw Angelina Jolie she was shimmering in the moonlight of the garden of Hollywood’s excluside Chateau Marmont hotel.

She was wearing jeans and a silky top, but radiated an unnerving sexiness. Her eyes locked into conversation with whoever intrigued her. It was as if they were the only person in the world, which was either charming or shy, depending on which way you looked at her.

Men stared in slack-jawed lust, a little afraid of her. Women stared at the ground or at each other in a mumbling, pouting sort of way.

This was long before there was Angelina and Brad. It was even before Billy Bob.

It seems that Angelina – striking, sexy, strong – is built in a way that women do not warm to. They see her as Alpha Vamp, too gothic to be a real mother.

Well, not any more – she’s having twins. There was never a love cauldron that raised more heat than the Brad/Jennifer/Angelina pot.

Female columnists around the world declared, “Angelina has a mouth designed for hoovering up husbands”.

Slogan T-shirts went on sale last year. Team Aniston outsold Team Jolie 25-1 because women identified with Jennifer’s pain. She was the victim.

She’d been dumped, like every one of them. Angelina is a different kind of woman. Just because she does not wear her pain on her sleeve and play the victim card, it does not mean she’s not vulnerable.

Actually, she does wear her pain on her arm. She has a tattoo, in Latin, that says “What Nourishes Me Also Destroys Me”. She’s a complex individual who has led a complicated life.

She says, “I think it’s more important to be understood than to be loved”.

Maybe that’s the same thing. What nobody seems to understand in this triangle is Brad left Jennifer. Angelina didn’t beg him or cajole him, manipulate or hoover him.

It’s shameful to perpetuate a myth of misogyny that says she was the one lacking in empathy or morals, especially when she states, “To be intimate with a married man when my own father cheated on my mother is not something that I could forgive. I couldn’t look at myself in the morning if I did that. It’s not nice to be breaking up a marriage.”

She was working on a mission in Niger when news reached the world that Jennifer and Brad had finally separated. Interesting the way that chauvinistic prejudice works. Brad was married. Angelina was single. It was Brad’s decision to end his marriage. This is all the evidence we have for sure, and surely it’s unfair for Angelina to carry all the blame.

Why, as women, do we identify with the victim? Angelina is not like other women. This makes her idiosyncratic, powerful, mesmerising. It should not make us hate her. She’s emotionally articulate. She’s lived, she’s learnt, she’s suffered, she’s smart.

She won an Oscar for her role in Girl Interrupted, set in a mental institution, and a Golden Globe for Gia, as the heroin-addicted bisexual model.

She kicked ass with last year’s blockbuster Mr and Mrs Smith, in which she literally tried to blow up her onscreen husband, Pitt.

She also fell for her husband Billy Bob Thornton on the set of Pushing Tin, but, hey, it’s not so unusual to meet your partner at work.

Her body is beautifully sculpted and she’s a true artist. She doesn’t care about the red carpet or handbags. Note, she’s always seen with the same one, a big old thing stuffed with baby paraphernalia. She does not believe in nannies.

“I am not going to be a mother who uses a nanny to do all the hard work while I have fun. That’s not my ethic.”

She works tirelessly, hands on and feet in the mud for the United Nations, and is its greatest ambassador since Audrey Hepburn.

She adopted Maddox in 2001 from Cambodia, while she was researching the part of an Aid worker for Beyond Borders. She adopted Zahara from Ethiopia last year.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees later appointed her Goodwill Ambassador. There is only one. She is not tokenistic in any way. Not a movie star on a vanity project.

She doesn’t do it to give her life more meaning. She does it to save people’s lives.

Aid workers who worked with her tell how she’s not afraid to ride for two days on a motorbike in the mud without showering. She sees herself as just one extra pair of hands able to dig. She makes $12 million to $20 million (R72 million to R120 million) a movie and gives a third away to charity.

She says, “If I have three million, I know one of them I can live without.”

She doesn’t just turn up and smile. She lobbies Congress to get aid, to get Bills passed, to change the world. In her role as Goodwill Ambassador she has visited more than 15 countries, including Kenya, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Haiti, Kosovo and Sierra Leone. In Pakistan, it was after the earthquake. Brad was with her. She has effected a transformation in him too.

“I put my head together, cover my tattoos, get into my suits, look clean, don’t dress sexy and try to present the woman that I’m not sure I am, but would like to aspire to be a little more. Everyone is always expecting me to be, or it’s been easier, to be the other girl.”

That other girl was from the dark side. The one who admitted to experimenting with drugs, knives and other women. She spoke about them all with searing honesty in a hope to explain herself, alienated her further from the world.

Her father was Jon Voight, the enigmatic actor who starred in Midnight Cowboy. Her mother is actress Marcheline Bertrand. They separated when she was one.

“I was always the punk in school. I didn’t feel clean or pretty. I felt interesting, odd or dark. I could understand the darker things, the moody things, the more emotional things.”

She grew up relating more to pain than happiness. She married actor Jonny Lee Miller when she was in her early 20s wearing black rubber trousers and a white shirt on which she had scrawled his name in blood. They split, but she is still close to him, saying that she was just too young.

“I wanted more from him than I could give him.”

This was the other girl who was hard on herself, who thought she had nothing to give – and now she’s giving so much.

She never thought she would be a mother. She was never the kind of child who was asked to babysit. In fact, when she needed to cry in movies, all she would do was extend her hand and imagine a child taking hold of it. Then the tears would come.

“I was always sure that I would never know that feeling.”

That feeling came when she first picked up baby Maddox at the orphanage in Cambodia. He was the last baby she visited that day. She held him and held him and when he opened his eyes there was a connection that made her whole life change.

With those eyes locked she fitted in a way that she never thought she could. No more slashing herself with knives “just to be able to feel something”.

Now holding Maddox was as profound.

“I held him for the longest time. When he finally woke up and stared at me we stared at each other and I was crying and he smiled.

“My discomfort with children was because I always assumed

I could never make them happy because I was accused of being dark. I wasn’t sure if I could be a great, loving, perfect mom, but

I wanted to be, so bad. He smiled and we hung for a few hours and I could make him happy and we felt like a family.”

Feeling like a happy family was something she had never had and, subsequently, jealously guarded.

She didn’t suddenly fall out of love with Billy Bob Thornton, to whom she was married at the time. Suddenly Maddox was her prime and primal concern. She didn’t think Billy Bob would be a great father to Maddox. “He wasn’t ready.”

This may seem, to the uninitiated, ruthless, but it was also strong and protective. She had changed dramatically. Maddox consumed her world. She didn’t want to be that person who carried a pendant of Billy Bob’s dried blood around her neck. She was more interested in flesh and blood.

She was out of the darkness because of Maddox and was determined he would never know its shadow. Her relationship with her own father had been at times close – and at times destructive. He disapproved of her adopting Maddox. She made the decision to keep him out of her life also, to protect Maddox.

“If you have people who put knots in your stomach, it makes you feel bad about yourself. You cry and then you get them out of your life. Be strong and focus your love elsewhere.

“I had some beautiful times with my father and I don’t think he’s a bad person. I just think we’re not a good family – there’s far too much pain.

“I never wanted to come home and yell at Mad because I was stressed after a bad lunch with my father.

“I am a good mother and a good friend. I am a good adoptive mother because I don’t see blood as family. I see it as time and love. You earn it.”

Although this may seem unorthodox, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a logic that is both profound and true. One must take into consideration that her childhood was painful.

Children from troubled upbringings usually only revisit that trouble in their own families, or decide that that will be too painful an experience and therefore never want children of their own.

Angelina had been adamant that she only wanted to adopt children, both because of this past and because “giving birth to one meant I could give one less child a home”.

Now she’s expecting twins, I see this more as a submission to Brad than an angle to ensnare him.

In fact, there was nothing of the ensnaring. She made it clear to him and to the world, if it cared to listen, that she is pretty independent and doesn’t need a man, and at least the kind of man she wanted would be hard to find.

“I just naturally don’t rely on men. That’s part of my problem with relationships. I have to be watchful not to allow myself to be too independen

Locks of controversy
Rumors that Angelina Jolie had cut off her adopted daughter’s hair caused an outrage. Why is hair such a highly charged symbol in the black community?
By Wesley Morris | July 8, 2007

JUNE WAS A busy month for celebrity news (Paris Hilton went to jail, Kelly Clarkson canceled her tour, Matthew McConaughey is still a superbachelor). So you probably missed word that Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt, the second of Brad and Angie’s four children (she’s from Ethiopia), may have received a drastic haircut and that this haircut was deeply upsetting for certain stargazers with Internet access.

“I think they shaved the poor kid’s head cause they have no clue in how to style her hair. I think they should get a professional African braider to braid her hair,” wrote Sexycocoa in a post to the black gossip site Media Take Out. On the same site, Akan5 wrote, “I DON’T TRUST THESE PEOPLE AT ALL. Why cut her hair. WHY! IN THIS COUNTRY people always let the girls’ hair grow.” That’s a representative sample of what wound up on various message boards late last month, from Take Out to E! _, and in people’s inboxes, including mine.

Whether they realize it or not, Jolie and Pitt have wandered into the fraught zone of black hair care, particularly as it concerns black women. For centuries, the identities of African-American women have been bound up in what they’ve chosen to do with their hair: straighten it, get extensions, get a press ‘n’ curl, get a Jheri curl (yes, it’s still an option), get cornrows, grow dreadlocks, twist it, wear a weave, wear a wig, or just leave it natural. It’s a prideful question asked in the poorest homes and the toniest houses — a question from which no black female living in America is immune. Oprah Winfrey might be able to do anything she wants with her hair today, but when she first started out, she had to face the same dilemma as a lot of black women breaking into TV: whether or not to get rid of the kinks.

Now, arguably the two most famous parents on earth will have to tackle what all nonblack adoptive parents of black children inevitably do. But they will have to figure it out with the world’s camera lenses focused on little Z. And according to a growing number of concerned black folk, Z’s parents may not be fully prepared. With more and more black chat lines demanding to know why one little black girl’s hair isn’t fuller, thicker, or at least more moisturized, a “Save Zahara” campaign may not be far behind.

Black hair is personal. Black hair is political. Black hair is lucrative: In 2004, black-hair-care products were a $1.7 billion industry; that’s a figure that doesn’t include the hundreds of millions spent on styling.

Black hair is also a ritual that’s been bringing black women together for centuries, whether it’s at a beauty shop or in somebody’s cousin’s kitchen on the Saturday night before church, the week’s biggest hair event. (Part of that ritual traditionally featured the hot comb, the controversial straightener embraced by the grooming pioneer Madame C. J. Walker.) In some neighborhoods, parlor owners double as community leaders. Books like “Tenderheaded: A Comb-Bending Collection of Hair Stories” and “Chicken Soup for the African-American Woman’s Soul” provide a vivid sense of the heritage associated with black hair — doing and undoing it, celebrating and questioning it. There are hair parties, trade shows, and magazines such as Hype Hair and Sophisticate’s Black Hair Styles and Care Guide.

More than anything, black hair epitomizes the deep disconnect between white society and black society. By and large, most whites are oblivious to the cultural minefield young black girls are born into, just by virtue of having hair that doesn’t bounce and behave. The issues it raises are complex and seemingly eternal, and while only a few of the most hostile emails and message board posts begrudge Jolie and Pitt the right to raise a black daughter, from the moment Zahara was adopted in 2005 there was an almost unanimous consensus that her parents should be doing something else with her hair.

An African baby in this country will have the politics of appearance thrust upon her, and even the most well-meaning, open-hearted parents will be judged through that lens. Part of that scrutiny is over texture. Notoriously and unceasingly, black hair is jammed into two categories: “good” and “bad” — good being straight, manageable, “white”; bad being kinky and unmanageable. Spike Lee’s 1986 “School Daze” featured a big-band musical number on the subject — called, succinctly enough, “Good and Bad Hair” — in which the light- and dark-skinned women of a fictional historically black college square off at a hair salon.

Topic A in this scene is hair. Topic B is identity politics: Why would you want kinky hair when you could have it long and luxurious like this? (Whether you grew or bought it notwithstanding.) But when the fair-skinned women in Lee’s movie sing, “My hair is straight, you see?” their darker-skinned opponents note that “[your] soul’s crooked as can be.” In the song, for the light-skinned girls, “nappy” is a no-no.

This, of course, is partly why Don Imus’s scandalous reduction of the Rutgers women’s basketball team earlier this year was appalling: He was talking about good and bad hair. Never mind that nappy connotes unyielding hair and that, once upon a time, a nappy head meant a strong woman. Now, nappy is the other n-word. One of Malcolm X’s selling points for the Nation of Islam was, “We teach you to love the hair that God gave you.”

A few years ago, the folk-soul singer India.Arie, sick of all the signifying, decided to get rid of her dreadlocks and was nearly bald for several months. She even wrote and recorded a kind of protest song on the subject: “I Am Not My Hair.” It was a wishful moment. Arie’s hair is back — and thick, too. She has made her peace with the politics.

As it happens, Zahara’s hair wasn’t shaved. It had been swept into a ponytail somewhere in the back of her head, rendering it invisible in some of the thousands of paparazzi photographs of the baby. But it didn’t matter, really. This was bigger than whether she had no hair or whether the little hair she had was being styled “properly.”

Wide Horizons, the Waltham-based international adoption agency that helped Jolie adopt Zahara, offers help to American parents with foreign-born children, and tries to put them in touch with similar families. According to a spokeswoman, the agency offers “culture camps,” social networking opportunities, and, yes, advice on hair care. It also encourages aspiring adopters to talk to other parents on a Wide Horizons resource list.

Dru Davies, a white mother who two black children in Marshfield, says her 23-year-old daughter sometimes looks at photos from her girlhood and asks, “How you could let me look like that?” They have a good relationship. But Davies says even though she did the best she could, she could have done a little better.

“Grooming and hair in the black culture are extremely important,” she says. “You really have to be aware of it or you’re doing your child a disservice in terms of being part of their culture.”

Shellee Mendes, the owner of Salon Monet, Newbury Street’s only black-owned business, has a dozen suggestions for what mothers like Jolie might do with their daughters’ hair, stressing that for a woman of any race, hair is a showcase for her personality. But she does note an exception.

“With a little girl, her hair doesn’t say as much about her personality as it does her mother’s,” Mendes says of Zahara. “And this little girl’s hair says her mother doesn’t know what to do.”

regarding Aniston’s recent date with a blonde,
“She is ready to date again”, says an Aniston source.” She will never overcome all her insecurities….”

….Her girl-about-town behavior is in sharp contrast to how she seemed 6 months ago, when she barely left her house while recovering from her ill-fated romance with Vaughn. (”Jen’s been mopey,”an Aniston confident said just before the new year. “She’s just been depressed.”)

Still one member of Aniston’s inner circle worries she is just putting on a brave face. “Jen is no happier than normal”, insists the pal. “Inside, she is a deeply insecured person with no self-esteem.” But presenting a smile might be what the doctor ordered. “It’s been known through research that if you act as if you’re happier you will be happier”. notes psychologist Peter Fararo. ” If you force yourself to get out there and smile, you will feel better.”

“A Mighty Heart” is Noble, But Unsuccesful

By Cassie McGrath

Published Wednesday, June 27, 2007

The latest depressing pseudo-documentary about current affairs, the Angelina Jolie vehicle, “A Mighty Heart,” opens with shots of a sprawling, overwhelming cityscape. The viewer is dropped squarely in the center of Karachi, Pakistan, the second most-populated city in the world, with an impossible question: “How do you find one man amongst all this?”
Anyone familiar with the gruesome story of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and brutally slain on videotape in Karachi in 2002, knows the unfortunate answer. But “A Mighty Heart,” adapted from Mariane Pearl’s autobiography of the same name, attempts to explain the frantic, month-long search for Pearl from a different point of view. Mariane Pearl, an Afro-Cuban Dutch Jew raised in Paris, was five months pregnant when her husband was kidnapped. She remains a journalist and world traveler, unfazed by terrorist intimidation.

The film tells the story from her powerful female perspective. This kind of performance requires a magnetic, compelling actress. Enter Angelina Jolie, in full pregnancy regalia, with darkened skin, brown contact lenses, a curly brown wig and a labored French accent. Both Jolie and Pearl have experienced grief, motherhood and paparazzi hounds, so the casting choice isn’t as odd as it may seem. However, Jolie presents a few problems.

The first is that the most skilled makeup artist cannot conceal Jolie’s luscious, exaggerated lips, which are incredibly distracting. However, there remains a much bigger problem: Although Jolie has been given the perfect canvas for the performance of her career, she fails to be truly compelling.

The character of Mariane Pearl requires both near-perfect casting and a virtuoso performance. Jolie is a terrific actress, and the viewer wants her to excel at this performance as much as the film needs her to. Demonstrating her trademark crackling energy, Jolie huffs around the house, snaps at the supporting cast, represses her grief over the loss of her husband and finally erupts in an excruciating, climactic howl. It is a noble effort. However, Jolie’s seething performance as Lisa in “Girl, Interrupted” is much more magnetic and believable. Seven years later, no amount of makeup can eclipse Jolie’s own personality, and in every scene, she cannot escape the celebrity she has herself become. Even if she could, she would still not be compelling enough.

That’s a shame, because director Michael Winterbottom excels at capturing the frantic, pulsating rhythm of Karachi. The stunning cinematography, accompanied by the loose, improvised script, makes the crisis feel all the more immediate. The supporting cast is also outstanding in every respect. Especially noteworthy is Irfan Khan’s performance as the captain of the Diplomatic Security Service, who, in one remarkable scene, tenderly interrogates a handcuffed, dangling suspect with fatherly empathy.

Despite its many strengths, “A Mighty Heart” needs a compelling main character to differentiate it from the recent slew of political thrillers, which lately seem to have the cinematic shelf life of skim milk. This film’s central character, Mariane Pearl, is also its greatest weakness. Because of that, “A Mighty Heart” is ultimately forgettable.

On Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2002, I stood at the gate of my rented house in Karachi, watching my friend Danny Pearl juggle a notebook, cellphone and earpiece as he bounded over to a taxicab idling in the street. He was off to try to find the alleged al-Qaida handler of “shoe bomber” Richard Reid in Pakistan. “Good luck, dude,” I called, waving cheerfully as he strode off, a lopsided grin on his face. His pregnant wife, Mariane, stood smiling and waving beside me as the taxi pulled away. A gaggle of parrots swooped through the trees above, squawking in the late afternoon sun.

That was the last image I had of Danny until late last month, when a PR executive for Paramount Vantage pulled up to my house in Morgantown, W.Va., in a black Lincoln Town Car. He was carrying a DVD of “A Mighty Heart,” the just-released movie, based on the book by Mariane Pearl, about the staggering events that unfolded after that innocuous moment in Pakistan: Danny’s kidnapping and eventual beheading.

SPONSORED LINKS
With my parents and a friend beside me, I pressed “play” on my DVD player and settled in to watch. Slowly, as the scenes ticked by, my heart sank. I could live with having been reduced from a colleague of Danny’s to a “charming assistant” to Mariane, as one review put it, and even with having been cut out of the scene in front of my house in Pakistan. That’s the creative license Hollywood takes. What I couldn’t accept was that Danny himself had been cut from his own story.

Where’s The Real Danny?

The character I saw on the screen was flat – self-important, bland and boring. He’s not at all like Danny, who wrote “ditties” about Osama bin Laden while he was investigating Pakistan’s nuclear secrets and jihadist groups as a reporter for the Wall Street Journal. On screen, officials warn him three times to meet with Sheik Mubarik Ali Gilani – the man with whom he thought he had an interview – only in public. But off he goes, ignoring the warnings. The message: reckless journalist.

That was nothing like the Danny I knew. As the credits rolled, I murmured to my mother, “Danny had a cameo in his own murder.”

Angelina Jolie Has ‘Mighty Heart’ Failure

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

By Roger Friedman

Angelina Jolie can’t be happy today about the fate of her latest film.

“A Mighty Heart,” released last Friday, has turned into a cold fish at the box office. After opening with a less-than-stellar $3.9 million weekend, the Michael Winterbottom film has taken a subsequent nose dive.

On Monday, the film had the biggest drop of any in the top ten, taking in only $398,000. Things improved slightly on Tuesday, with $418,000. (These are rounded off numbers derived from boxofficemojo.com.)

But as far as the future is concerned, for now at least, “A Mighty Heart” is a mighty failure.

This is too bad. The film is very, very good, and the subject matter is important. For filmgoers who complain that there’s nothing out there for adults, “A Mighty Heart” should be a must-see experience.

But it’s Jolie herself who has turned off audiences. Her publicity blitz as mother of the year from tattooed, blood accessorizing whack job has simply not gone over well. And her anti-press campaign in the week of the film’s premiere couldn’t have helped.

One wonders now if Jolie can still convince audiences she’s an actress. It’s possible her public persona has become so indelible that moviegoers can’t accept her as a fictional person other than Lara Croft, tomb raider and cartoon character.

The loss, of course, goes to Mariane Pearl, whose own story and that of her beloved husband Daniel is more important than Angelina Jolie.

But even Pearl caved into Hollywood at one point when she started telling reporters that Jolie was her first choice to play her in the film.

People even with short memories recall when Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston announced that they’d bought Pearl’s book for Aniston. Even in late 2005, Aniston told me that she still planned to play the part. Somehow bad Hollywood karma attached itself to a serious story.

This is a uthentic review @ 07/16/2007 at 2:42 am

By Kenneth Turan, Times Staff Writer

“A Mighty HEART” has to serve a number of masters — the somber story surrounding the kidnapping of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, the magnetic star quality of actress Angelina Jolie, the quasi-documentary style of director Michael Winterbottom — and it does so remarkably well.

That’s a lot to juggle, but the resulting film, both moving and frighteningly real, so plays to everyone’s strengths that it’s clear that none of the elements would have fared as well without their connection with the other two.

The narrative of the doomed search for Pearl, for instance, taken from the bestselling book written by his widow, Mariane Pearl, could have turned maudlin and treacly in other hands. Left to another story, Winterbottom could have fallen victim to a weakness for being excessively chilly and distant, which he’s displayed before. And with a different plot and director, Jolie could have ended up with an earnest but plodding film like 2003′s “Beyond Borders.” Instead, these various elements kept one another honest and on point just by being who and what they are.

Making “A Mighty Heart” a compelling experience is quite an accomplishment given that anyone who cares enough to see the film will know the outcome of the story. Abducted on Jan. 23, 2002, in Karachi, Pakistan, Pearl was brutally murdered by his captors, a fact revealed about a month later when a grisly video was released by the killers.

That awful denouement imparts a palpable sense of dread and dismay to a tale that, with its focus on religions, cultures and political systems in conflict, is in many ways a paradigmatic story of our times. As written by John Orloff (Emmy nominated for HBO’s “Band of Brothers”), it’s a narrative that maintains a keen balance between reasons for despair and causes for hope, a story for which Winterbottom was an excellent choice.

For though his directing career has taken some strange turns (“Code 46,” “9 Songs”), Winterbottom’s strength, witness “The Road to Guantanamo” and especially “In This World,” is his ability to create a phenomenal sense of place, especially where southern Asia is concerned.

Working with his usual cinematographer, production designer, editor and costume designer (Marcel Zyskind, Mark Digby, Peter Christelis and Charlotte Walter), Winterbottom is truly expert at manufacturing reality, at making us feel that we are right there among the crowds, the chaos, the complete foreignness of a remote part of the world. Christelis’ quick, decisive editing, which lets nothing linger on the screen, is especially helpful in calling up a sense of verisimilitude that is hard to shake.

Though it doesn’t neglect the emotional component of the Pearls’ story, “A Mighty Heart” is most accurately viewed as a kind of political film noir, a tense and elaborate police procedural investigation of both what happened to Daniel Pearl and the herculean efforts expended by Americans and Pakistanis to try to rescue him before it was too late.

Using a mixture of professional and nonprofessional actors and Winterbottom’s technique of improvisation within a scripted structure, we are once again made to feel as if we are right there at the Pearls’ house when key decisions are made and information disclosed.

Critical to the emotional connections “A Mighty Heart” makes is the performance of Jolie as Mariane Pearl. The Oscar-winning actress, whose significant skills have been eclipsed by her position as a tabloid favorite, puts the emphasis back where it belongs with a forceful, immediate and convincing performance.

Though a series of big close-ups often places her front and center, Jolie resists the temptation to push too hard or overplay her part. Rather she uses her charisma and skill to express not only weariness and fear but also the hard-edged fierceness and lack of patience that are crucial to seeing Mariane as a real person, not a biopic saint.

It is Mariane we hear on “A Mighty Heart’s” voice-over introducing us to the Pearls’ situation in early 2002. Both journalists (she works for French public radio) are in Pakistan to cover the war in Afghanistan and its aftermath. She poignantly describes Karachi as a city with “so many people, no one knows how to count them. How do you find one man among all these?”

With Mariane now nearly six months pregnant, the Pearls are a day away from leaving the country. Danny (nicely played in an abbreviated role by Dan Futterman) just has one last interview to do, with a hard-to-find man named Sheikh Gilani, a cleric with ties to militant Islamic groups. He heads off in a taxi, but he never returns.

Once what has happened to Pearl is known, a mixed group of Americans and Pakistanis comes together, not without difficulty and misunderstandings, to try to ascertain who took him and why. The ins and outs of the prolonged investigation, the sense of chaos and confusion joined with determination and hope, are the center of “A Mighty Heart’s” drama.

At the heart of that quest is Mariane Pearl, someone whose refusal to give up not only on Danny’s fate but also on the quest for truth and the power of communication he believed in is the film’s most hopeful element. Early in “A Mighty Heart,” those ideals are mocked at a dinner party as “a romantic idea of journalism,” but they finally turn out to be ideas both Daniel Pearl and this committed film believe are worth making a dreadful sacrifice for.

Angelina Jolie Slammed by Ex Nannies for Kid Control
By Brenda Jones
Jun 22, 2007

Angelina Jolie’s ex nannies claim her kids aren’t Allowed to have friends as she is worried about privacy. A cover story has sourced some of what is reportedly some of the ex nannies of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and they are ready to spill out the secrets of the Brangelina children.

Angie who has admitted that she is quite protective of her kids won’t even allow them to have friends a report published in the National Enquirer claims. The couple has hired a nanny for each of their four children – Maddox, 5; Pax, 3; Zahara, 2; and their natural daughter Shiloh, 1, according to the report.

***

The report claims that Angelina doesn’t want the nannies carrying the children in public as it will make Jolie look bad. That is fairly well documented with photos. “If a nanny can’t live with Angie’s rules, she’s gone,” said the insider. “Another big issue for the nannies is the cant that the kids don’t have many – if any – friends besides each other.”

It’s hard for the children to make permanent friends because they are constantly on the move, going from New Orleans to Los Angeles to Prague in the past year, with more traveling ahead. Angelina has said she believes her children benefit tremendously by traveling so much and being exposed to different cultures.

***

Is this best for the kids? You decide. The report speculates that one negative side effect of all this traveling is loneliness and that hit hard during a birthday party for Maddox.

“For Maddox’s 4th birthday they did a decoy party at the house with balloons and the kids of the security guards. Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina and a nanny and Maddox went up to Santa Barbara,” the insider told the Enquirer. “It was terribly sad. Maddox would have been far happier playing with the security guards’ kids than riding his mini ATV on the sand.”

Angelina Jolie Movie ‘A Mighty Heart’ Mighty Dud at Box Office
By Staff
Jun 25, 2007

Angelina Jolie has been accused of hypocrisy, trying to strong arm the press and being generally an overbearing b*tch as she walked the red carpet in New York to promote ‘A Mighty Heart,’ Our friends at the National Ledger suggest.

Angelina Jolie insisted last week that her representatives sent out a non-mandatory memo to all reporters requesting that they focus questions on the movie, and not her personal life. She also claimed that she did not ban Fox News or any other news organization from her premiere

The film is the story of how Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl lost his life and his wife’s crusade to know the truth. One has to wonder if Angelina Jolie was the right choice to play Pearl’s wife Marianne.

However, “A Mighty Heart” plays more like a tragic soap opera than a Police procedural drama.

G’Nite/G’Morning JPville!

Greetings to all BAMPZS fans. Happy to see them on the go again and wishing and praying safe travels for all in our most loved family.

Enjoying the discourse and LOL at the commentary.

Something has bugged me for a while now and I cannot figure it out. Please help if you can. The second picture im Missouri Fan’s lovely video, the one described in the past as Brad “macking” on Angie, the one on the balcony: can someone please say when it was taken? Was it a part of M&MS deleted scenes? I have almost every photo since they became a known item and I do not remember that one. It is driving me crazy!!

Loved the **John Ad. I think there are few AJ pictures more beautiful than her B&W photos and that is saying a lot since she hardly has any that are not “knock ‘em out of the ballpark” georgeous!!

Another troubling question (LOL at my obsessivness): The Jet looks small. Is there enough room for Mikey, the retainers, guards and Holly? If not do they have their own plane? (I know…SILLY!)

Finally, and this is a hangover from a previous discussion here and more recently on PITTWATCH regarding the persistent labelling of adopted vs biological. It occurs to me that all children tend to emulate their parents and as Angie herself said that “they are not unlike us in that they are brave and bold”. That being said is it only me or has anyone else noticed that Mad and Angie have the same long feet? That ALL the kids have full lips? That Mad walks JUST LIKE Brad? And…even though I have not seen it yet from Pax, their smiles are meggawatt, just like Mom and Dad and can melt a glacier? (OK, I’m certifiable!)

Oops, Big shock, I guess I just love my BAMPZS! BG

Hello, everybody. Does anyone knows if Rica will update her fanfic anytime soon?

P.S= Congrats to everybody here for NOT giving this one hater the attetion that she wants.

Marcheline Bertrand’s _ memorial by her brother, sister, cousins, ex-partners, goddaughter and close friends.

Since Jolie did not allow them to be at her memorial service they had to find another way.

The shocking is that her partner (Billy Day) for more than a decade and stepfather to Jolie when she was a baby wrote this:

She Was The Wine! – Bill Day

Marcheline was a benevolent force in many lives, including my own. To see her end up such a tragic figure is unaccetable. For some of us, the long winter freeze is over and the big thaw has begun. Let us all take this opportunity to know the best course forward is to avoid the path of unforgiveness lest we tempt the same fate.

I held my own memorial down by the ocean. I blew a kiss out to sea and said, “Ciao, Bella.” On my way home, a smile suddenly came to my face. I thought about all those poor little wankers out there pining for Angie.Too bad they didn’t know Marche like I did. She was the wine!

Bill Day – Los Angeles

Bill Day was Jolie’s step dad for 12 years.

http://valleygirlintelligentsia.vox.com/library/post/a-mighty-hypocrite-angelina-jolie-bans-the-press-from-the-premiere-of-her-movie-about-free-press.html

Her grandiose self-importance was already enough to make scream wildly at the TV :”Just shut up! You were in HACKERS! No one cares!! Shut up!!”
But now she has gone too far.
Angelina “My-swollen-bleeding-heart-is-encrusted- with-fuel-efficient-gems-given-
to-me-by-the-child-soldiers-of-sierra-leone ” Jolie BANNED Fox News from her premiere for “A Mighty Heart”.

Thoughts:

1. FREEDOM OF THE PRESS, IS LIKE, UH, KINDA OF BIG DEAL. I know that you’ve been spending so much time in the Third World collecting all your accessories adopting kids that you’ve gotten used to societies where the infant mortality rate is like 56 times what ours is and that honest critical journalism results in some one being thrown into a pit. BUT here in AMERICA, we do things a bit differently.

2. Fox News sucks. We all know it, they’re looney. BUT just because they stand on the other side of the political spectrum doesn’t give any one the right to stifle what they say. Don’t shut them out because they don’t “just adore Nancy Pelosi!” like you do, Angie. (By the way this goes for all the Democratic Candidates who “refused” to debate on Fox News. Heaven forbid that conservatives be exposed to your golden rays of truth! Better to keep them in the dark!)

3. Uh, you are a celebrity. That’s it. You would not make any money with out the press and paparazzi. Studios don’t pay based on talent, they pay based on popular appeal (please see Scarlet Johansen). Therefore you wouldn’t be able to afford the jet fuel for your private plane that shuttles you around without the press, but you don’t get to pick and choose about when you want to be covered by them or not. Its not part of the deal. F****** buck up, count your money, and deal with it.

4. This premiere was in New York for a REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS fund raiser. For those reporters that were “allowed” to be there, all had to sign a contract before entering , limiting what they could ask her. The contract stated that they “not ask Ms Jolie any questions regarding her personal relationships and that if the journalists dared to venture into this forbidden territory, they faced the risk of the actress terminating the interview.

5. Wow, what a total c***.

HAT TIP: The super awesome picture is from galleryoftheabsurd.com. Its an incredible site filled with hilarious/ironic/absurd/scathing celebrity “fan art” check it out! here are some of my favs: Li-lo and Brangelina

UPDATE: Jolie’s damage control gnomes said that Fox was “overlooked” on the guest list, not banned. Fox doesn’t buy it. Additionally, the rest of the press is pissed off as well.

A ‘Mighty’ b.o. disappointment: Bad Oscar omen for Angie?
Memo to Angelina Jolie: Oooops, don’t book that babysitter yet for Oscar night! There may be — uh-oh — a slight complication. Despite getting Oscar-worthy reviews for her latest role, “A Mighty Heart” proved to be the opposite of mighty in ticket sales this past weekend, reaping only $4 million ka-ching for 1,355 venues.

Oscar voters, of course, like their movies to be successful. However, “the docudrama marks another box office disappointment for lead Angelina Jolie, who has never carried a popular picture on her own,” writes Brandon Gray at BoxOfficeMojo.com. “Her only hits have been action fare like ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ and ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.’”

Highbrow filmgoers haven’t been supporting Angie since 1999 when she won that supporting Oscar for “Girl, Interrupted.” She’s acquired too much baggage — that creepy, blood-vials thang with Billy Bob Thornton, then swiping Prince Charming from America’s Sweetheart Jen Aniston next. As a result, Angie’s got one of the highest negative Q scores among all Hollywood stars. Sure, she seems so different nowadays, all classy and regal even while saving the Third World one adopted child at a time, but, face it, her life up in those tabloid headlines inevitably impacts how her work up on that silver screen is received.

But, wait, there’s hope. Obviously, late June is usually an unwise time to release a heavy drama like this. Maybe Paramount Vantage execs aren’t crazy? Could they be secretly Oscar sandbagging?

CLICK HERE to Continue Reading!

Kudos campaigning is different nowadays, as “Crash” and “Little Miss Sunshine” proved. If contenders get out to theaters early, they can campaign closer to Oscar time using just regular DVDs. Average cost of each disc to manufacture and send directly to one voter: $5. However, watermarked DVDs cost $10 each to make — plus there’s the cost of shipping, which can be expensive because each disc must be coded according to addressee.

Paramount Vantage just proved with “Babel” that it knows how to campaign for Oscars. Maybe it decided to roll out early with “Mighty” because it’s got another contender to be released late this year: “There Will Be Blood,” Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama starring Daniel Day-Lewis as a turn-of-the-century Texas oil prospector.

Authentic review 2 @ 07/16/2007 at 2:47 am

The Wall Street Journal

Of the two powerful presences in “A Mighty Heart,” only one gets star billing: Angelina Jolie gives a fierce and astute performance as Mariane Pearl, the wife of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was abducted and murdered by al Qaeda operatives in Karachi five years ago. The other presence is the city itself — vast, throbbing with life, teeming with misery and, as depicted here, all but unfathomable to Westerners seeking to penetrate its secrets. This is a smart and serious film, however much it may also function as a star vehicle. The director, Michael Winterbottom, working from a script by John Orloff, has turned Mariane Pearl’s memoir into a relentlessly intense drama about the search for her husband, as well as her search for meaning in his death. And the immediacy of the setting, heightened by documentary techniques, makes this a chastening film, a portrait of the explosive new world in which we live.

In her own portraiture, Ms. Jolie mixes tenderness with implacable toughness. She plays Mariane, a journalist herself and six months pregnant at the time, as a wife who loves her husband passionately, but a woman with no time or inclination for the niceties of behavior once it’s clear he has been taken prisoner. At that point she becomes an obsessive organizer of the search, and a compulsive scourge of anyone who threatens to stand in her way. (One fatuous Pakistani functionary insists that the abduction is an Indian plot.) Given Angelina Jolie’s celebrity, the obvious danger in such a take-no-prisoners style of acting was imposing herself on the real-life story, but that hasn’t happened. To the contrary, the actress enters the character and stays there, even during her feral cries in the film’s most harrowing scene.

Dan Futterman (right) as Daniel Pearl and Angelina Jolie (left) as his wife, Mariane, in ‘A Mighty Heart.’
Daniel Pearl is played by Dan Futterman (who, oddly in this context, may be best known as the Oscar-nominated screen writer of “Capote”). The reporter is seen fleetingly, at first, as he arrives in Karachi from Islamabad, then goes to his fateful meeting with a supposedly legitimate source for a story he was doing on the shoe bomber Richard Reid. I didn’t know Danny, so all I can say about Mr. Futterman’s performance is that it, and his physical resemblance to his character, seem persuasive. But Danny’s character seems persuasive too — not a hero of the war on terror, as some have sought to cast him, and certainly not the incautious naïf that others have thought him to be, but a first-rate reporter of maturity, reflexive decency, insatiable curiosity, reasonable prudence and unreasonable dedication to finding the truth of whatever story he might have been working on.

Against most Hollywood odds, Danny Pearl’s tragically truncated life story has fallen into good hands, thanks to the film’s producers (first among them Brad Pitt) and to the filmmaker they entrusted with the production. For much of the past decade Michael Winterbottom, who was born in England, has been refining his agile style in such extraordinary films as “Welcome to Sarajevo” and “In This World,” and in last year’s “The Road to Guantanamo.” It’s a style that integrates drama and documentary footage, mixes professional with non-professional actors and yields a sense of place that’s as vivid as anything seen on TV news.

On one occasion the stylist stumbled. “The Road to Guantanamo” was long on immediacy but short on factuality. And one aspect of the technique here amounts to tacit editorial comment. Through the use of oppressive close-ups, quick cuts, film-noir peeks into labyrinthine neighborhoods and long lenses that compress the confusion of Karachi’s streets into pandemonium, the director and his Danish-born cameraman, Marcel Zyskind, have made the city seem endlessly menacing. What would the same locales have looked like if they’d been shot by a Third World filmmaker?

Yet the film’s point of view is inevitably that of an outsider, which Danny Pearl was, and menace is the essence of this shattering story, which has been told with skill and urgent conviction. “A Mighty Heart” makes the terms of the terrorist threat palpable.

‘Evan Almighty’

When God commands a modern-day Noah to build an ark in “Evan Almighty,” he gives him a book called “Ark Building for Dummies.” This is movie-making by and for dummies, a sappy little bible story, blissed out on its own ineptitude, that’s full of birds (plus their doo), that looks like “The Birds” when it isn’t aping “Dr. Dolittle,” and that is definitely, though far from incidentally, for the birds.

Steve Carell in “Evan Almighty’
The Evan of the title is Evan Baxter, last seen in the 2003 Jim Carrey comedy “Bruce Almighty.” Evan, played by Steve Carell, was Bruce’s rival, the self-satisfied TV newscaster who suddenly began to spout gibberish on the air. (More gibberish, that is, than TV newscasters usually spout.) Mr. Carell plays Evan again, but this time, in Jim Carrey’s absence, his character has graduated from bit player to hero, and from newscaster to a freshman congressman who got elected with the hollow campaign slogan Change the World. (Which is, admittedly, no more hollow than the gibberish that political candidates usually spout.) God is played, once again, by Morgan Freeman, whose suave charm can sell all sorts of silliness, but not the amiable imbecility peddled by this film.

None of it makes much sense. God’s commandment kicks in after Evan proves himself a poor steward of the environment — he drives a Hummer and lends his name to a bill that will destroy the national parks. But why would that make him a candidate for ark captain? And why do people think he’s crazy, since hordes of animals, as well as birds, follow him wherever he goes? Though these are troubling questions, their significance pales in comparison to the idiocy of Evan’s itinerary. His vessel travels only from suburban Virginia to Capitol Hill, on a flood tide that’s mostly inside the Beltway. Still, that’s far enough to be certified as a ride. Look for an ark sometime soon at a theme park near you.

*

Bill Day? Cashing in on his 0.5 seconds of fame on the expense of the dead? How pathetic.

Oh please, know you patetic people are going to bring here the tabloid trash? Keep the trash to yourselfs and enjoy it. You guys are sick!

A Mighty Heart review @ 07/16/2007 at 2:49 am

FoxNews review

Jolie Film About Daniel Pearl Filmmaking of Highest Order
“A Mighty Heart,” Angelina Jolie’s film about the kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, had its first screening Monday morning at the Cannes Film Festival.

Simply put, the Michael Winterbottom film is an exceptional piece of work, deeply affecting and filmmaking of the highest order.
In purely Hollywood terms, the film is a certain Oscar nominee. Everyone involved in “A Mighty Heart” – from Winterbottom to Jolie as Pearl’s widow, Mariane, to Dan Futterman as Daniel Pearl – can be proud of a job very well done.

Based on the book by Mariane Pearl, the film follows the pregnant Mariane as searches for her husband following his disappearance in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2002. At the time, Daniel Pearl was writing a story about shoe bomber Richard Reid.

Winterbottom’s cinema verité-style only adds to the immediacy of the Pearl tragedy. This director has done a remarkable job.

The whole interview:

American cinema’s most beautiful mug returns to the screen with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

- In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?
- Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Besides, I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

-Yourself, you do not work like that?
- No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

- How did things go with Soderbergh?
- At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been informed: there wont definitely be a Ocean fourteen. It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

- Do you regret having done any of your movies?
- More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

- You, unemployed?
- Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

- Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?
- Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a lost bullet was terrific to me. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

- You’re a working fiend…
- No, not really…

- But you say it yourself, you film a lot…
- A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it

- If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?
- To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?
-You do not? (Laughs). Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

- What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?
- If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

- By whom would you like to be directed?
/b>- By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick , with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Daiamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

- It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…
-True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

- And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…
- (Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

- You don’t love any other super heroes?
- I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me i that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things there?
Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

- Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?
- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

- The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?
- No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful reward comes above all from the public.

- May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?
(Laughs) You may always try.

- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!
- She is not one to show her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?
Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

- Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?
- I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

- How have you managed?,
By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.

- Actually, in keeping with your friend George Clooney, you are also tremendously worried about the state of our planet…
- Of course you’re going to say it is a bit hypocritical to proclaim oneself an environmentalist and to travel by plane, even if for professional reasons. But on my daily life I drive a small electric car, very powerful for that matter. I am very interested in the G8 Summits and often organize, as we did in Cannes, fundraisers to help the most destitute or for Darfur. To hang around artists such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and the world debt with the chief decision-makers has also strengthened my beliefs. The need to inform and the urgency of these problems remain vital. I’m going to get more and more involved in the years to come. I’d love to have done something good in my life!

Premiere review.

“A Mighty Heart”

Given her tabloid noteriety, is it possible for Angelina Jolie to even register a performance anymore? That is, when on screen, can she make you believe that you are not looking at Angelina Jolie? That’s just one of the questions going through my mind before seeing A Mighty Heart, the much-bruited film adaptation of Mariane Pearl’s memoir starring Jolie as Pearl, co-produced by Jolie’s companion Brad Pitt, and directed by Michael Winterbottom. (Pearl was the wife of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan in early 2002. Mariane, also a journalist, was five months pregnant with their son at the time.)

The answer to the question is “kind of.” Which is not to say that Jolie does not perform to the fullest of her capabilities, or that she is ineffective. But what makes her convincing here has as much to do with how she is shot as what she does.

The ever astute Winterbottom has cast the film as a procedural and an ensemble piece. Contrary to what many might have inferred from the production stills, official-and-non, that emerged during the making of the film, this is not a picture wherein a lone Mariane Pearl wanders wide-eyed through the streets of Karachi in a heroic search for her missing spouse. Mariane spends most of the time in the rented house of a friend and colleague (Archie Panjabi), surrounded by a partially ad hoc team—a Pakistani police captain, an American diplomat, a couple of Wall Street Journal staffers, etc.—trying to piece together the hows and whys of Pearl’s abduction. (Pearl himself is played very well by Dan Futterman in his likable straight-shooter mode.)

Winterbottom appears to understand that no matter how much she is made up (here she is given a darker complexion and ringletted hair to better resemble the Afro-Cuban/Dutch Pearl; she looks pretty much just like herself regardless), there is no way an audience is going to look at her onscreen and NOT see Angelina Jolie. He employs a couple of strategies to tackle this. In the initial sequences of the film, he rarely puts her in the frame all by herself; she’s always in part of some bustle, even if she’s in the foreground. He also cuts very quickly; he doesn’t give her any “moments.” Thus, he makes her just a part of what he’s weaving, much of which involves getting the viewer as deep as film possibly can get one into the feel of Karachi. Winterbottom’s particularly good with environments, and he’s also a deft, quick storyteller, and he juggles chronology in a way that gives us a quick, empathy-generating read of Daniel and Mariane’s passionate involvement while moving the kidnap tale at almost full throttle.

Later, at moments when Mariane is most emotionally fraught, Winterbottom makes us not see Jolie by sort of not showing her to the viewer; he will shoot her from behind, or in silhouette. We don’t get a full-on, well lit face-forward shot of Mariane screaming until she’s giving birth to her and Daniel’s son Adam. And by this point of the film, it works.

As does, I should say, the rest of the picture, which is involving and moving in the mode of another war-zone Winterbottom picture, Welcome to Sarajevo. Jolie and Pitt were very smart to get a director who doesn’t do star turns to do Jolie’s star turn. I dare say she’s got at least an Oscar nomination locked.

Variety Review:

A Mighty Heart

The sad saga of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Danny Pearl has made it to the bigscreen with facts, figures and beating heart intact in “A Mighty Heart.” In his first studio venture, Michael Winterbottom coaxes forth a staggering wealth of detail from this terse, methodical account of Pearl’s kidnapping and murder in Pakistan, seen through the eyes of those who sought his return. Given audiences’ resistance to films dealing with 9/11 and its aftermath, soberly restrained pic reps a mighty tough sell, though Angelina Jolie’s performance as Pearl’s widow should broaden prospects for the June 22 Stateside release.

Adapting Mariane Pearl’s harrowing memoir, director Winterbottom, who previously ventured into Mideast politics with “In This World” and “The Road to Guantanamo,” proves to be just the man for the task. Though the prolific British chameleon isn’t one to make the same film twice, his gifts for docudrama storytelling — an ability to shepherd complicated narratives, avoiding every opportunity for sensationalism in favor of a low-key mounting dread — couldn’t be better suited to the material.
Having covered the U.S. bombing of Afghanistan following the Sept. 11 attacks, the Pearls were working as journalists in Karachi, Pakistan, on Jan. 23, 2002 — the day Danny (“Capote” scribe Dan Futterman), chasing a story about foiled shoe bomber Richard Reid, got into a cab and never returned. Sticking close to the very pregnant Mariane (Jolie), pic recounts the restless five-week search for the man’s whereabouts and his kidnappers’ identities, all accompanied by a hailstorm of media attention.
Screenplay crisply diagrams the labyrinth of false leads and fruitless interrogations with various middlemen Danny may have had contact with on the night of his disappearance. Suspicion ultimately comes to rest on the elusive Omar Saeed Sheikh (Alyy Khan), a known Islamic militant with a history of kidnapping foreigners.

Like his fellow suspects, Sheikh is seen only briefly, and in the most objective possible light. Working in the brisk, discursive style of a police procedural, Winterbottom scrupulously follows the rescue effort, step by agonizing step — ensuring that the audience is never given additional information despite its foreknowledge of the tragic outcome. Even larger political questions — the implications, say, of a scene in which a Pakistani suspect is strung up and interrogated, or the grim irony of a journalist couple facing intense media scrutiny — are subjugated to the flow of the storytelling.

Along the way, pic also manages to sketch vivid portraits of Mariane’s key supporters and allies. These include Danny’s tough-minded colleague, Asra Nomani (Archie Panjabi); a local cop (Irffhan Khan), known simply as Captain, determined not to let the case soil Pakistan’s reputation; American diplomatic security agent Randall Bennett (Will Patton), who tends to see the silver lining in all bad news; and Wall Street Journal higher-up John Bussey (Denis O’Hare), who arrives in Pakistan after news of the ordeal, a comforting but resilient figure.

But this is ultimately — and very intimately — Mariane Pearl’s story, and much of it rests on Jolie, who fits comfortably into the naturalistic mold that shapes the entire ensemble. Though Jolie sports a big belly, a high-coiffed hairstyle and a very challenging accent (raised in France, Mariane is of Afro-Cuban and Dutch descent), this isn’t the sort of commanding star turn in which the performer vanishes behind a well-known celebrity mask, but rather a subdued, carefully considered portrait of a woman caught between premature grief and persistent hope.

Jolie plays Mariane as sharp and prickly, but also highly principled and completely devoted to her husband. Wisely, Winterbottom opts to shoot her more high-pitched outbursts from a distance or in near-darkness, as if refusing to milk more histrionics than necessary.

Occasional subdued flashbacks to happier days from Mariane and Danny’s marriage, including a very brief love scene, add emotional texture even as they take something away from the film’s otherwise unsentimental approach.

Pic negotiates its way around another potential landmine — to show or not to show the widely circulated video of Pearl’s murder — re-creating a very brief, non-graphic snippet of the contentious footage and getting the facts across with the utmost restraint.

Shot on location in Pakistan, India and France, the film gains considerable authenticity and momentum from its handheld DV lensing by Winterbottom’s regular d.p., Marcel Zyskind, and Peter Christelis’ rapid editing, rarely allowing a shot to last more than a few seconds.

From Empire magazine (biggest selling European film mag)

“Going straight out to come back in, we found ourselves sitting in exactly the same seats for Michael Winterbottom’s new film, A Mighty Heart, a true-story-slash-biopic set in Pakistan and starring some American bird called Angelina Jolie. Filmed on the hoof in India, but shot so stunningly you’d swear they’d closed down the whole country for the shoot, the film tells the story of Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal writer who was kidnapped by jihadists, on suspicion of being a CIA and Mossad operative, then viciously beheaded in the first of many militant video statements issued in the wake of 9/11. Jolie plays his widow, Mariane, but she isn’t always the focus, sometimes sliding into the background whenever Winterbottom’s film morphs into United 93-type reconstruction. Anyone who doubts her acting talent will be hard pushed to find fault with her performance here; the French accent and (controversial) dusky looks are very convincing indeed, but if there’s a fault to be found it’s perhaps that the film lacks a little in subtext. Then again, it seems churlish to say that: Winterbottom finds terrific flavour in the backstreets, and there’s a poignant sense of camaraderie to counter the cruelty. “

Times Review:

A Mighty Heart

Michael Winterbottom’s harrowing film about Danny Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and decapitated in Karachi in 2002, is a raw account about the frantic efforts to get him back. It nails the ghastly moment when journalists became prized scalps for terror organisations. Angelina Jolie plays Pearl’s pregnant wife, Mariane – on whose memoir the film is based – with a rigour and passion that surprised even the most jaded sceptics in Cannes.

The film begins on the day Danny (Dan Futterman) fails to turn up for supper. He is working on a story about the shoe bomber, Richard Reid, and has arranged a meeting with an organisation who have background knowledge. A missed supper becomes a crisis within 24 hours. The film charts the hollow weeks Danny is missing mostly through Mariane’s eyes. The house of a close colleague becomes headquarters during the desperate search for motives and information.

There is a confusion of investigators treading on each other toes, and contradictory information about who might have snatched Pearl. Leaks and rash speculation in the press add to the vertiginous panic. At times it’s difficult to know who exactly is in charge. A terrific cast of fixers and officials tease out clues from laptops, emails, and telephone numbers. An uneasy alliance is gradually forged between an American diplomatic security agent, Randall Bennett (Will Patton), various Wall Street Journal friends including the editor, John Bussey (Denis[correct] O’Hare), the head of the Pakistan’s brand new counter-terrorism unit, Captain (Irrfan Khan), the Citizens Police Liaison Committee, and the FBI.
At the still centre of this increasingly tense investigation is Jolie’s defiant Mariane. The film shuttles manically between meetings, endless telephone calls, the growing media frenzy, and the streets of Karachi with terrific confidence. What the kidnapping means to each character is etched on their faces. The power of this giant documentary-style jigsaw lies between the rumours, the false leads, and the hard details. Winterbottom captures brilliantly the chaos of daily life in Pakistan, and the febrile atmosphere as Pearl is first denounced as a CIA spy, and then – when his Jewish roots are fatally exposed – an agent for Mossad.
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. Shots of street vendors and overloaded buses are slotted between armed raids and interrogations. You can almost smell the fear on suspects. And there’s a controversial flavour about the vested, sometimes murky, interests of assorted officials. Ultimately what makes the film such an affecting modern parable is the authenticity of the emotions. Jolie’s blasts of grief when Mariane hears the dreaded news that her husband has been beheaded pricks tears and raises the hairs on your neck.

Jessica Simpson said: “Angelina is one of my biggest role models. I got to interview her recently. I didn’t know her at all, but just sitting in front of her, I felt this incredible peace.She was breathtaking. I couldn’t help but stare, but it’s her inner beauty that you really feel.”

Brad, Angelina and the rise of ‘celebrity colonialism’
What gives two Hollywood actors the right to shut down an African nation so that they can have a special experience?

Over the past six weeks a Western security force has effectively taken over the small African nation of Namibia. A beach resort in Langstrand in Western Namibia has been sealed off with security cordons, and armed security personnel have been keeping both local residents and visiting foreigners at bay. A no-fly zone has been enforced over part of the country. The Westerners have also demanded that the Namibian government severely restrict the movement of journalists into and out of Namibia. The government agreed and, in a move described by one human rights organisation as ‘heavy-handed and brutal’, banned certain reporters from crossing its borders.

However, this Western security force is not a US or European army plundering Namibia’s natural resources or threatening to topple its government. It is the security entourage of one Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the celebrity couple better known for living it up in LA than slumming it in Namibia. They reportedly wanted their first child to be born in Namibia because the country is ‘the cradle of human kind’ and it would be a ‘special’ experience (1). And it seems that no security measure is too stringent in the name of making Ms Jolie feel special. Welcome to the new celebrity colonialism.

Pitt and Jolie went to Namibia, a small and largely impoverished nation of 1.8 million, six weeks ago. Their daughter – Shiloh Nouvel – was born on Saturday night. As they awaited the birth they reportedly surrounded themselves with their own personal security detail and armed Namibian police. According to the Independent there was even a no-fly zone, enforced by the Namibian government, over the luxurious Burning Shore beach resort where Pitt and Jolie were holed up.

Apparently, the stars also got to dictate which reporters could and could not enter the country. According to one report, the Namibian government ‘bowed to pressure from the duo and granted them the right to ban foreign journalists from entering the country – a remarkable move for the government of any sovereign state’. The government is said to have granted this extraordinary veto to Brad and Angelina after the couple told ministers that they would be ‘forced to quit the country unless allegedly intrusive journalists and paparazzi were brought to heel’ (2). Namibian ministers hope that a trip by two Hollywood bigwigs to their shores will do wonders for their tourism industry, and thus have done everything they can to keep the couple happy (3).

“Angelina is beautiful. I have a lot of admiration for her.” – Mary Louise Parker [People Magazine]

“Angelina Jolie is a good example of someone who really puts her time into bettering the lives of so many children.What I don’t understand is the media’s criticism (of Jolie’s) involvement in humanitarian aide and why they question her motives and sincerity. It’s like, Who cares? She’s doing a good job and putting so much of her time and money in the causes.” – Tea Leoni

“I think she’s an exemplary human being. Kind, incredibly smart, lovely. But my story has nothing to do with her intelligence and everything to do with adventure.” – Elizabeth Mitchell [TV Guide]

“I’m not sure what I expected before I met her, but to say I was impressed would be an understatement. She is smart, funny, self-deprecating, and intensely passionate about her children and her work on behalf of refugees.” – Anderson Cooper

Exploring New Roads: ‘A Mighty Heart’ Q&A with Adventurous Angelina

Lisa Collins and Brigid Brown
Hollywood.com Staff

HW: Given it’s an independent film, but a summer release, will you be watching box office numbers this weekend?

AJ: First of all, I never do! I’ll be somewhere hanging with the kids, and I won’t know. I do live with the producer [Brad Pitt] so I may hear something [laughs]. The great thing about this film was that it was done very low budget. So we don’t have a lot of pressure. Nobody made it for the reason of making money. Even the producers themselves and the studio don’t care, really. They want it to be good, and they were really happy that there was a positive response to the product.

Angelina Jolie is so stunning that even camels, palm trees fall in love with her,even dead people would want to date her – she’s amazingly gorgeous”. (Val Kilmer)

” She’s ravishingly beautiful and never gets old and never gets boring ” (Ethan Hawke)

“I swear to God I’m going to tackle her and lick her and hit her over the head and drag her back to my house, caveman-style” (Tommy lee)

“Angelina Jolie is my favourite chick right now.
I’ve never met her actually. I’m to the point. I’d just let her know. ‘Yo, I need to holla at you, come see me in my hotel tonight.’
If I see her face-to-face I’ll let her known what it is. We need to get a fling going.” (Rapper Cam’ron)

“She’s very sexy – there’s just something about the way she moves. She’s like liquid.” (Denzel Washington)

luvangie4ever @ 07/16/2007 at 3:01 am

I love you Angelina!!!! Missed you so, so much. Hope the whole Jolie-Pitt family is well and happy. :D Love them forever and always….

Thanks Just Jared for the new pics! I’ve been checking in daily just to catch a glimpse of Angie and these made my day. :)

she is respectable @ 07/16/2007 at 3:02 am

Some excerpts from “transcript from “The O’Reilly Factor,” April 26, 2007, that has been edited for clarity” found online

quotation:
“O’REILLY: OK.

Now, your daughter, Angelina Jolie. You know, we checked her out. I don’t know whether you know this or not. Big investigation on her. And we found out she walks the walk, that she gives all the money, millions of dollars and this and that.

She has become, I believe, the most interesting celebrity in the world. In your opinion, why?

VOIGHT: Yes, she is fascinating. She’s fascinating to me. She’s my daughter. I’m completely fascinated with her. And I have a great admiration for all the work she does and in her humanitarian effort.

I think she’s quite stunning, of course. Very attractive gal. And she, for whatever reason, she has a certain charisma.

O’REILLY: OK.

VOIGHT: Now, she’s one of those people. There’s several people that catch…

O’REILLY: In the acting — in the acting profession, you’ve known them all. Some people have charisma and some don’t. She obviously has it.” (end of quotation)

Bigger than any single tragedy, Angelina Jolie kidnaps Daniel Pearl’s movie
by J. Hoberman
June 20th, 2007 11:54 AM

A skilled actor vanishes into a role; a movie star appropriates it. As presence trumps character, the star personifies Brecht’s alienation effect, and whatever its ostensible subject, the movie becomes a vehicle—the latest installment in an ongoing career or, in the case of a great star, a public myth. (translation :Jolie is no actress just a movie star hamming up a role)

Angelina Jolie is the major alienation effect in A Mighty Heart, although she’s not the only one. The hectic pizzazz with which hired gun Michael Winterbottom directs this tale of terrifying terrorism is another distraction—and so is the movie’s true-life premise. An addendum to last year’s 9/11 movies and a sequel of sorts to Winterbottom’s Road to Guantánamo, A Mighty Heart is based on one of the most disturbing events of the 9/11 aftermath—namely the case of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, abducted by jihadi extremists in Karachi and, five weeks later, brutally executed on video, in part because he was a Jew.

A mondo-global, insanely urgent, staccato procedural in which each shot arrives like a bulletin, A Mighty Heart is characterized by sensational, quasi-documentary location work in swarming Karachi and a sense of near-constant frenzy. Pearl’s briskly staged abduction sends the movie into controlled chaos. The crime triggers a dense montage of flashbacks and action cuts, accompanied by head-spinning techno-babble—a manhunt with a half-dozen agencies busily tracking e-mails and cell-phone calls.

After his capture, Pearl ( Capote writer Dan Futterman) appears only in flashback—despite a few video teases, the movie resolutely refuses to show him in captivity. A tough Pakistani cop (Irfan Khan), wholly committed to the case and willing to torture prisoners when necessary, serves as a minor hero. But the heart of the movie, of course, is Pearl’s wife Mariane (Jolie), seven months pregnant and compelled to endure the torments of the damned. Based on Mariane’s memoir, the movie is true to her clear-headed politics, even while refracting them once more through the media’s rainbow prism and the glamour baggage that its star necessarily brings. (so much for realism and soul Marianne likes commercialism and gkitz too, like Jolie)

Oscar notwithstanding, Jolie belongs less to Hollywood than the magic kingdom of publicity—in Cannes, where A Mighty Heart had its world premiere, she was referred to as the planet’s most photographed woman.

Google serves up 358,000 wildly clashing images. ( Rolling Eyes if you include all the hits of her nude photos ****** and all )

Over the past decade, her persona has mutated from tattooed Goth girl to possibly incestuous cyber-dish and Esquire’s “sexiest woman alive” to its current, suitably contradictory state—most fully expressed by Kate Kretz’s five-by-seven oilpainting Blessed Art Thou, in which, posed as the Virgin Mary, a beatific Angelina and three cherubic children float on a cloud above a Wal-Mart check-out line. Jolie is Our Lady of Humanitarian Narcissism: Not we but she “are the world,” good deeds illuminating her divine person in a blinding blaze of glory.

A Mighty Heart, which was co- produced by Jolie’s consort, Brad Pitt, is the celluloid equivalent of Blessed Art Thou. Jolie’s Pearl is an almost mystic presence; not since Lara Croft has the actress had so apposite an avatar. Jolie plays Mariane as an icon—her complexion darkened and hair tortured into a perfect mass of ringlets.

Jolie as Mariane Pearl is not as extreme a notion as, for example, John Wayne playing Albert Schweitzer, or Jennifer Aniston in the role. As striking and preternaturally poised as she is, Mariane Pearl is herself a great performer—as demonstrated when she went on TV to argue for her husband’s life.

No less than Jolie, the actual Mariane ascended the red carpet at Cannes; in the movie, her character is imagined as a star. Possessed of an iron will and a miraculous presence of mind, she’s surrounded by an entourage yet awesomely solitary in her tragic isolation.

When the worst inevitably occurs, no one is able to hug or even comfort her—she goes off alone. The movie is fundamentally a solo, and the creepiest thing about A Mighty Heart is the ease with which this terrible tale becomes a meditation on divadom.

A limited actress but an overwhelming presence, Jolie cannily saves all emotional fireworks for her big scene.
Has Daniel Pearl been eclipsed? Blame Brecht. As Mariane, Jolie not only thinks faster but looks better than anyone else. Whatever happens, she’s never less than gorgeous.

There’s hardly a moment when Jolie is on-screen that you can’t sense the presence of make-up artists and hair stylists hovering anxiously just off frame.

It looks like we have something to look forward to come the OSCARs!

Explanation of why Jen got the GLADD award–from perez hilton.

article below from perezhilton

Sharon Stone may be a bit crazy – well, a lot crazy – but at least it’s very clear the support and tireless dedication she has lent to gay and lesbian causes.

Jennifer Aniston?

Uhmmm….not so much.

She ha a gay publicist, Stephen Huvane. That might have something to do with it!

And her gay hairdresser, Chris McMillan, is one of her best friends.

She deserves an award for that!

The former Friends star was presented the Vanguard Award by Jake Gyllenhaal at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.

This is how it works…..

GLAAD gives the award to the biggest star they can get in hopes of getting lots of media coverage for the ceremony.

This year they didn’t do so well!

Brad Deep In LoveWith Angie @ 07/16/2007 at 3:05 am

From the interview with Bergian/French journalist at Cannes

American cinema’s most beautiful mug returns to the screen with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

- In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?
- Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Besides, I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

-Yourself, you do not work like that?
- No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

- How did things go with Soderbergh?
- At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been informed: there wont definitely be a Ocean fourteen. It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

- Do you regret having done any of your movies?
- More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

- You, unemployed?
- Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

- Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?
- Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a lost bullet was terrific to me. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

- You’re a working fiend…
- No, not really…

- But you say it yourself, you film a lot…
- A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it

- If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?
- To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?
-You do not? (Laughs). Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

- What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?
- If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

- By whom would you like to be directed?
/b>- By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick , with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Daiamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

- It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…
-True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

- And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…
- (Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

- You don’t love any other super heroes?
- I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me i that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things there?
Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

- Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?
- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

- The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?
- No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful reward comes above all from the public.

- May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?
(Laughs) You may always try.

- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!
- She is not one to show her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?
Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

- Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?
- I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

- How have you managed?,
By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.

- Actually, in keeping with your friend George Clooney, you are also tremendously worried about the state of our planet…
- Of course you’re going to say it is a bit hypocritical to proclaim oneself an environmentalist and to travel by plane, even if for professional reasons. But on my daily life I drive a small electric car, very powerful for that matter. I am very interested in the G8 Summits and often organize, as we did in Cannes, fundraisers to help the most destitute or for Darfur. To hang around artists such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and the world debt with the chief decision-makers has also strengthened my beliefs. The need to inform and the urgency of these problems remain vital. I’m going to get more and more involved in the years to come. I’d love to have done something good in my life!

He said his former relationship was turbulance.
And he said he is a new man after meeting Angie.
He also said he is in love with Angie as was first in love with her.

Jen fans are delusional @ 07/16/2007 at 3:08 am

cheeky Says:

CHINN fans are secretly STILL GRIEVING!! You see it in their posts about Brad “regretting” leaving X. OR”he misses his old life”. And when they see no evidence of Brad and Angie trouble, they take out their frustrations on Brad by saying he looks old or tired. Time is running out for Aniston. There aren’t many roles for no talents pushing 40.
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

They are like Custer’s last stand. He lacked the ability to accept the truth, and so do they. They so bought into the “perfect golden couple fairy tale” that it is an integral part of their present lives. It’s as if they were married to Brad. They cannot accept that he has never looked back at his old life. He told everyone in an interview that he knew what he wanted, and that he was going to make what he wanted happen. That is just what he has done.

Yup, Jen fans are all rabid, delusional people

perpetual lurker @ 07/16/2007 at 3:08 am

Re-posting because I got caught and submerged in the Troll DUNG! BAMPZSters it is like they wait for the sun to go down and emerge en mass to swarm like a tide of pestilence over the landscape! Eeach! Must IGNORE!

249 perpetual lurker : 07/16/2007 at 2:44 am
G’Nite/G’Morning JPville!

Greetings to all BAMPZS fans. Happy to see them on the go again and wishing and praying safe travels for all in our most loved family.

Enjoying the discourse and LOL at the commentary.

Something has bugged me for a while now and I cannot figure it out. Please help if you can. The second picture im Missouri Fan’s lovely video, the one described in the past as Brad “macking” on Angie, the one on the balcony: can someone please say when it was taken? Was it a part of M&MS deleted scenes? I have almost every photo since they became a known item and I do not remember that one. It is driving me crazy!!

Loved the **John Ad. I think there are few AJ pictures more beautiful than her B&W photos and that is saying a lot since she hardly has any that are not “knock ‘em out of the ballpark” georgeous!!

Another troubling question (LOL at my obsessivness): The Jet looks small. Is there enough room for Mikey, the retainers, guards and Holly? If not do they have their own plane? (I know…SILLY!)

Finally, and this is a hangover from a previous discussion here and more recently on PITTWATCH regarding the persistent labelling of adopted vs biological. It occurs to me that all children tend to emulate their parents and as Angie herself said that “they are not unlike us in that they are brave and bold”. That being said is it only me or has anyone else noticed that Mad and Angie have the same long feet? That ALL the kids have full lips? That Mad walks JUST LIKE Brad? And…even though I have not seen it yet from Pax, their smiles are meggawatt, just like Mom and Dad and can melt a glacier? (OK, I’m certifiable!)

Oops, Big shock, I guess I just love my BAMPZS! BG

235 Lmao : 07/16/2007 at 2:29 am
213 huh say what? : 07/16/2007 at 1:56 am

EVERYONE is COPYING BRAD!!! Wow, Brad really is a trendsetter and style icon. When I started seeing the ‘Mr. Smith’ haircut everywhere after it released in Summer of ‘05 (and that style has continued unabated), it was confirmed — now just look at JJ’s blog today…you’ve got this young’un Zac wearing Brad’s Fedora, and you’ve got David ‘Squeaky’ Beckham wearing Brad’s close brush cut (and dying it platinum – yet another shout out to Brad). They all need to get off Brad’s jock….but then again, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

_____________________________________

Isnt the “Mr. Smith haircut” called a Caesar? ahhh hasnt that haircut been around before Brads great great grandfather was born. I recall it being called the Clooney cut back when George Clooney rocked it in the 90s on ER. But I guess Brad wore it before then.

“Brad’s Fedora” dont tell me he invented that to and made it popular. ROTFLMMFAO
=======
The Mr.SMith haircut was just a damn shaved head. Many people have had that cut before Pitt. Lmao
___________________________

No dear. There’s a diff between a “shaved head,” and a brush cut which is not shaved, nor is it a crew cut, which Brad rocked in MAMS. Everyone knows it, even YOU, with your silly manic hater faniston aSS knows it too! LMAO. I have never in my life seen so many men RUNNING to the barber to get that close brush cut – where the hair doesn’t so much as look like it’s sticking up in very short spikes (as a crew does) or bald (as a “shaved head” does) — but more resembles a thickly cropped pelt that is shaped to the head – as I have seen POST Mr.& Mrs. Smith. So stop with the denial and face the facts – Brad has it going on, as he has ALWAYS had it going on, and men want to be JUST like the man who has ‘Angelina Jolie’ on his arm, is the hottest producer in town, is an amazing Dad, and looks like one damned FOINE Papi while doing it! Oh, and one more thing – just because something has been around for a long time, doesn’t mean it’s going to necessarily come back with a vengeance and become a trend that everyone wants to wear. Keanu Reeves actually caused the same reaction at barbershops and salons everywhere when he sported the brush cut in SPEED, 11 years later Brad resurrected it, and guys want to look like him. I’m not saying Brad ‘invented’ that look, OR the fedora you damned idiot, I’m saying he is making it in style and trendy, and something other guys want to sport, because they acknowledge just how fine Pitt looks rocking those styles. Sorry if the obvious TRUTH of the man’s popularity and adoration, is like a knife in you hater fanistons shriveld up litle black hearts!

236 Lmao : 07/16/2007 at 2:32 am
Lmao @ the Brad fans trying to find negative Angelina articles.

While I, on the other hand, am laughing my ass off at an OBVIOUS hater faniston troll like you, posting negative Angelina articles from bullsh*t silly tabloid websites like Natnl Alledger, and having the audacity to say it’s Brad fans. BAHAHAHA!! Look, go back to wallpapering your room with Maniston’s ridiculed anti-environmental bottled water ads where her nose is as big as the bottle she’s holding, and lighting candles for her DEAD career and FUG face. We have better things to do, like discuss the MOST FAMOUS PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, and the OSCAR WINNING soon to be OSCAR NOMINATED woman that BRAD PITT WORSHIPS. Taht’s it…don’t cry…run along now you horrid looking fat aSS trolls! LMAO :lol

FROM WHAT MY FRIENDS AND RANDOM PPL, ONLINE USERS I ASKED SAID ANISTON IS A TERRIBLE ACTRESS

She is gonna have a problem. She is 38, by hollywood standard, she is old.

275 she is respectable : 07/16/2007 at 3:02 am

Some excerpts from “transcript from “The O’Reilly Factor,” April 26, 2007, that has been edited for clarity” found online

quotation:
“O’REILLY: OK.

Now, your daughter, Angelina Jolie. You know, we checked her out. I don’t know whether you know this or not. Big investigation on her. And we found out she walks the walk, that she gives all the money, millions of dollars and this and that.

She has become, I believe, the most interesting celebrity in the world. In your opinion, why?

VOIGHT: Yes, she is fascinating. She’s fascinating to me. She’s my daughter. I’m completely fascinated with her. And I have a great admiration for all the work she does and in her humanitarian effort.

I think she’s quite stunning, of course. Very attractive gal. And she, for whatever reason, she has a certain charisma.

O’REILLY: OK.

VOIGHT: Now, she’s one of those people. There’s several people that catch…

O’REILLY: In the acting — in the acting profession, you’ve known them all. Some people have charisma and some don’t. She obviously has it.” (end of quotation)

Like Angelina says:
“People can question your choices, accuse you of things, but your real work and your integrity will [win] out. All that matters is if I build a strong family, if I’m able to do my advocacy work and if my children are happy.”

Schlumberger @ 07/16/2007 at 3:14 am

Mr and Mrs Smith Says:

Another day and here you are AGAIN. For someone who claims to hate Angie, you are totally obsessed with her and how she lives her life. Like the lady on Showbiz Tonight said, there are people who are intimidated by Angelina Jolie because she lives her life the way she sees fit and doesn’t give a damn what the masses think and those are the people prone to alot of criticism of her, and I believe you are one of those intimidated people. See, you are a hateful person and the thing that my pastor said that ‘what you criticize in others is invariably true in yourself’. I think there is something that you hate in yourself and something about Angie brings that out. So, the next best thing is to attack her, her children, her choices.

The good thing is that God knows and loves Angie and he will take care of her and her family. The more you spew your hate, the more blessings you send Angie’s way.

Just look at past examples, people spew all kinds of hate toward her in 2005, calling her all sorts of names in the media, magazines, and what happens in Angie’s life? She starts a relationship with a good, yes I said good man, a sweet little girl called Zahara enters her life, she is given a humanitarian award, she is blessed with child by becoming pregnant, etc. In 2006, while the hate is still going on, what happens, her children are permanently blessed with Brad as their father, her and her family are travelling the world and we see them enjoying themselves despite an encounter with a nasty __ fan, she gives birth to a beautiful baby girl, she and Brad go out for dates and to parties, they get to travel all over the world and even with challenges, they manage to come out of those challenges stronger.

In 2007, we start off with very very very bad press by the media before and after the GG, but that doesn’t stop her from living her life. Her mother dies, but she doesn’t go through it alone, because Brad and his family and her children are there for her and her brother. She goes on to a mission in Chad and shares with the world the tragedy in Darfur. She is named as a candidate to enter the CFR and has a very strong possibility of being accepted in. She is blessed again with another little boy in her life. We also learn that she has been an asset to **. Johns clothing line and not a liability as was reported negatively last year, and she has an opportunity to starr in a movie directed by Clint Eastwood (a big time, well-respected actor/director).

So, you see, in as much as you spew your hate, you are never going to stop God’s blessings from coming down her way. Love you always, Angie, Brad, and your family. Keep on keeping on and may God continue to bless your lives.

This is definitely a cult site!!!!!!

I knew thay you don’t have the ball to publish the comment. You are a coward JJ.

Schlumberger @ 07/16/2007 at 3:17 am

This was the observation that Anderson Cooper made:

When Angelina Jolie came into the room, just four days after returning from Namibia, she was alone. No handlers, no entourage. True, elaborate precautions had been made to make sure no photographers followed her to the hotel where we met, but there she was, by herself, walking into the hotel suite, smiling, ready to talk.

Notice that he said she made elaborate precautions that she was not followed by a photographer – because a lot of haters try to say that everything is for PR purposes.

Angie has a kind heart @ 07/16/2007 at 3:19 am

Frenchy Says:

Also FYI about Angelina and schools:

Liberian refugee women stitch together new future after Angelina Jolie skills course

LARGO CAMP, Sierra Leone, Feb. 23 (UNHCR) – There was an atmosphere of joy and jubilation in Largo refugee camp last week when 50 Liberian refugee women each received a sewing machine after successfully completing a sewing skills course, funded by UNHCR’s goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie.

“Today, our dreams have come true and for this we are very grateful. When we came to the camp, we did not know anything. But, with the skills that we have learned, we now know how to sew both for children and adults, we can return to Liberia and will be able to do something on our own,” said Sangay Kawala on behalf of the trainees.

At the graduation ceremony the refugees sang songs in praise of Angelina Jolie and UNHCR. The Goodwill Ambassador donated the funds for the sewing courses in four refugee camps in Sierra Leone, including buying some of the sewing machines distributed to participants. UNHCR also helped fund the sewing machine purchase in Largo camp.

“I would like to congratulate all of you on the completion of your training. You deserve the certificates and sewing machines,” UNHCR’s Kenema sub-office head Ibrahima Coly said to loud cheers and applause. Coly encouraged the refugees to use their sewing machines to help them stitch together a new future and help others.

The majority of the group and their families have signed up to repatriate back to Liberia shortly, joining some 50,000 Liberian refugees from around West Africa who have now returned home since the official repatriation started. Back in Liberia, their sewing skills will be crucial to help them restart their lives.

“The future is now in your hands. Please make the best use of it. I would also like to appeal to you to kindly assist to train other refugees or returnees who were not privileged to get the machines. I wish you all good luck in your future career,” Coly told the happy graduates.

The main aim of the sewing project was to build the capacity of refugee nursing mothers, improving their nutritional status by giving them skills to generate income, says training programme coordinator Magdalene Dakowa of Catholic Relief Services. Another aim was for the sewing groups in each of the camps to produce 500 baby clothes for refugee children.

The initial six-month training project started in January 2004. The course was so successful that the trainees went on to produce children’s clothes for both refugees and host communities as a way of continuing their career development. During this period the women in Largo camp were contracted to produce school uniforms by one of UNHCR’s partners. The graduation ceremony marked the conclusion of their career training.

Funds for the project were also used to help 500 other refugee women improve their backyard gardening, again to help improve the nutritional status of the refugees.

At the graduation ceremony, five trainers of the project – three men and two women – also each received one machine. One of the trainers, Isata Koroma, came from the host community.

“The sewing machine that I have received will help me and my family,” said Isata. “I am a single mother. My husband was killed in the war in my country, Sierra Leone, and it has been really difficult for me to take care of our seven children. I am very grateful for this assistance.”

There are eight refugee camps in Sierra Leone hosting some 46,000 refugees, with most coming from Liberia’s most devastated Lofa County. With the positive changes taking place in Liberia UNHCR is now actively promoting voluntary repatriation for an estimated 160,000 Liberian refugees still outside their homeland. Some 46,000 Liberian refugees remain in camps in Sierra Leone with Largo camp hosting 5,300 refugees.

Sometime it is… When a bunch of crazy people that areexcuses for a human beings, invande the posts about Angelina (manily her) and make the cult of hate an lies.

Most of the time it’s a nice place, were people (some that are even friends?) come and talk about people and things that they like.

I know you are just trying to help but Jessica Simpson use to dog Angie out in the beginning of the X thing, she has only lately been saying positive things about Angie.
But for me she can STFU. If she trully liked admired/respected Angie, she never would have sided with X in the beginning, when the lies X was telling went down, she should have kept her fug mouth SHUT!
JMO.
Otherwise thx 4 the other articles. Peace.

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1187349,00.html

It was in the magazine “Time” (April 2006). Angelina as one of the most important people who shape the world.

An eye witness, good article!

Recently, I took my 13-year-old daughter Maddy to a New York City event honoring Angelina Jolie. Every parent will relate to the fact that Maddy often finds the world of celebrity magazines more interesting than the world of her father—which in my case centers on the United Nations and its work fighting poverty. That night Angelina brought those two worlds together. Maddy was awed by how Angelina used her celebrity to lift all of us beyond the glamour of a Manhattan ballroom and make us confront the grim realities of poverty in the farthest corners of the globe.

That ability to transcend worlds has something to do with Angelina’s movie-star charisma—but it also says something about her diligence and grit. Angelina, 30, spends a great deal of time in the developing world, visiting refugee camps, speaking and listening to the men, women and children she is working to help. Those people, Angelina explained, “have seen so much, they’ve felt so much pain—lost more than anyone could bear, and yet they contain joy of life and appreciation for small things we often forget.” It was a further indication of Angelina’s humanity that she stopped to listen and talk to Maddy as the city’s power brokers hovered impatiently, awaiting their brush with celebrity.
Angelina’s commitment as goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees has pushed her to speak out about root causes—economic failure and lack of justice. She urged me relentlessly to meet her last year during a stopover at an airport where our paths happened to be crossing, so that I could brief her ahead of her appearance at a big international meeting. It is typical of her. The subject was the Millennium Development Goals—a set of objectives agreed upon by the world’s governments. They range from eradicating poverty to reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS. As always, she wanted to be prepared—not just to share impressions of poverty but to be able to speak seriously to the issues. Angelina went on to make a film for MTV on a village in Kenya, where a pilot project is under way to fight poverty, hunger and disease.
That blending of the activist and the performer, not on the set but in the African bush, reflects her determination to stick with a subject, immerse herself in it, make it part of her life—and then bring her public with her. It is celebrity advocacy at its most effective, most intelligent and most sincere. For that, she has my enduring respect and gratitude—and Maddy’s.

Surgery, not counseling, for Lakers, Kobe
Article Launched: 07/15/2007 11:13:19 PM PDT

If marriage counselors were true to their deepest, most sincere and scholarly feelings and didn’t have a profit motive involved in keeping a couple’s name in their daybook for six months or more, they would send most of the deeply conflicted couples they see off to their respective corners with two blessings.

One, that they they find happiness somewhere else. Two, that they detach as soon as possible lest someone gets hurt, and we’re not talking about their feelings.

No one can argue that the Lakers and Kobe Bryant are deeply conflicted, yet everyone with the slightest feelings for the franchise and the star player are hoping to find some way to keep the two together.

I care as much as anyone, but the reality is as apparent as the long couch in the therapist’s office: Kobe is gone. If not now, soon.

Even if the Lakers were to make a trade that improves the team to the degree that satisfies Bryant, it doesn’t mean that Bryant will stay here any longer than two years, when he can opt out of his contract. If winning was truly the only thing on Bryant’s mind, after all, then he and Shaquille O’Neal would still be teammates.

==============
We’re dealing with bigger issues than anyone has thrown out onto
the court. Anyone who believes the rupture in the relationship can be traced to some nameless insider putting the blame for O’Neal’s departure on Kobe’s shoulders probably thinks Angelina Jolie was the only thing that came between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
For the sake of argument, let’s say the Lakers find a way to bring Kevin Garnett to the team and give the team the two-star system most everyone in the NBA believes is required.
===============

By the time the 2009-10 season arrives, two years from now, Bryant will be 31 and Garnett will be 33. The Western Conference will likely be a tougher conference next season and beyond than it has been with multiple teams making moves forward.

Garnett could arrive and make the Lakers better, and the Lakers would still be first-round fodder. The team still wouldn’t necessarily have an answer for San Antonio’s size, Phoenix’s pace or Dallas’ depth. Two years later, older and with more mileage on their bodies, they would be less of a solution.

What would Kobe do then? One would have to be quite the blind optimist to think Kobe would then stay in L.A. simply because the franchise made the effort to be better. There’s been too much damage to this point and Bryant simply doesn’t seem motivated to make it work.

A professor of psychiatry at NYU’s School of Medicine, Peter Fraenkel, says motivation is the key to repairing a damaged marriage, and if one side isn’t motivated to put some work into the relationship, it’s not going to survive.

Bryant is a brilliant basketball player but also a serial franchise killer. He’s been at odds with virtually everyone in the organization.

His trade demand was quite an affront to team owner Jerry Buss, who cleared the way for the Lakers to become Bryant’s team. Buss, with Bryant’s interests in mind (as well as his own wallet), broke up a team that had been to the Finals four times in five years. That’s the kind of commitment that should have created lifelong loyalty for Bryant.

Bryant has taken shots at Jim Buss, the son of Jerry who has been handed the reigns of the team for the future, taking an axe to the family tree.

He’s made it clear he doesn’t respect GM Mitch Kupchak, a loyal soldier to the family. He intimated he wants Jerry West back, knowing full well that the Buss-Kupchak-West relationship is too complicated to make it possible.

He now has an arms-length peace with coach Phil Jackson, but this seems like a matter of convenience for both men. Considering what Jackson has said and written about Bryant, I doubt Bryant will ever truly forgive Jackson. At the moment, it’s to his advantage to have Jackson on his side.

Everything he has said about the team’s shortcomings reflects on his teammates. He’s bashed Andrew Bynum, but it’s more telling that there’s not a single player on the team that he’s defended. He’s literally said he doesn’t care about the children.

So seriously, how much is really going to change in the next two years?

Buss isn’t going to sell the franchise. He isn’t going to take his son Jim out of the loop. He’s not going to reinstall Jerry West as GM, and West doesn’t want the job. He’s not going to fire Kupchak, and even if he did, he certainly wouldn’t put the franchise into the hands of Bryant’s only ally, Jackson. Jackson himself is probably going to call it a career soon, too.

Adding one star player isn’t going to make everything lovely for everyone involved. To quote Neil Young, “Ooh, ooh, the damage done.”

A psychologist told Time Magazine a few years ago that the number of positive and negative factors in a relationship is the key to whether a marriage can be saved, and that only 31 percent of conflicts ever get resolved.

Anyone out there see any positives in the relationship? If so, please call the Lakers and Kobe and offer your services.

Buss needs Bryant because every financial aspect of the franchise is tied to Kobe. But if the reality is that Bryant walks in two years regardless, then it’s time to stop trying to repair that which can’t be fixed and prepare a new blueprint.

The two sides are way beyond Dr. Laura, Dr. Phil or Dr. Melfi. They don’t need a therapist. They need a surgeon.

good post @ 07/16/2007 at 3:32 am

tabloids Says:

Angelina has donated more than a reported $ 12 million+ quietly before she came to limelight. But here is an interesting article from Forbes:

At times in the past, I have come down fairly hard on news stations featuring celebrities’ daily activities as “daily news.” But there are times when it is appropriate to discuss the daily actions of famous people, even in a magazine such as Forbes, when said actions amount to $58 million dollars in charitable donations given by three people.

That statistic becomes even more impressive once one realizes that Oprah Winfrey, love her or hate her, donated $52 million dollars in 2005 alone to charitable organizations and functions. The other two celebrities filling out the other $6 million are Steven Spielberg ($3 million) and Angelina Jolie ($3 million +). It has become a cliche of American society that “to whom much is given, much is expected” (possibly because so many people have ignored the sentiment), and many progressive thinkers (myself included) routinely attack the elements of society that give so much money to entertainers and so little to people such as school teachers, who are responsible for raising generations of youth.

But it’s also important to recognize that there are some highly paid people who don’t hesitate to give their money back to others. These are not people paying a tax on their income (though they obviously do that too), these are not people being backed into a corner and “forking over” a couple of dollars. Orpah Winfrey could have kept $52 million dollars for her own entertainment, but she chose to give it away to people who don’t have as much. And I think that’s pretty impressive.

The communication experience people create determines their impact and ability to influence others. Decker Communications’ annual list of the Ten Best and Worst Communicators proves this point. President Bush, Angelina Jolie and Barry Bonds — are they among the Best or Worst Communicators of 2006?

San Francisco, CA (PRWeb) January 2, 2007 — Decker Communications, Inc. (http://www.deckercommunications.com), a leading communications training and executive coaching firm, announces its annual list of Top Ten Communicators. This year’s list highlights notable individuals from business, politics, sports and entertainment — and shows how their communications helped make or break them in 2006.

The Ten Best

5. Angelina Jolie — finally, a movie star, and beautiful at that, who is now known as much by what she says and how she says it as being beautiful. Under klieg lights she appears natural, (and they say those lips are natural too.) It is a tribute to her cause, and her articulation of that cause for children and the impoverished, that she has become a public figure as a stateswoman rather than just a beauty.

Dancer Says:

I was looking at the UNHCR site and I believe Jolie has new journal entries from her travels online: http://www.unhcr.org/help/HELP/439d4ee52.html

Some of the older ones have updated information. From the list (PDF files) since the publication of her book on Oct 1, 2003–the PDF files for Sudan, Thailand and Jordan appear to be new. I think based on the dates it is possible that Russian Federation, may also be new.

I’m at work and don’t have my book, but they have links to Thailand and Kosovo as well as the book. Since work is slow, I’m going to start reading….
BTW for people who doubt her commitment to the refugees, there are six current ambassadors: Georgio Armani, Julien Clerc, George Dalaras, Barbara Hendricks, Adel Imam, Jolie and Osvaldo LaPort. Of the six, Jolie has 67 press releases about her activities, commitments and events compared to the next highest which is 12 for Armani and Hendricks. You don’t put the effort into supporting something like this for fame, glory and self-promotion and do more than all the others put together. You go Angelina! You are a shining beacon of hope to the refugees of the world!

_______________________

In 18 months, Maniston turns the BIG 4-0!! Let’s have a big ol’ cyber party for her here on JJ’s shall we??

Seriously though, it’s less about her age, and more about the fact that she’s a TV sit-com hack with little to no talent who hasn’t ever proven herself — at best she comes across as adequate (and that’s on a good day). A person who just has TV sit-coms on their resume, with sporadic features that star HUGE comedy boy sensations, is not going to get a lot of offers that could shoot her into the stratosphere at this late date. Now she could luck up and get a franchise (ala her fellow Huvane client, Kirsten Dunst in Spiderman) – but since Brad took a powder, she’s no longer ‘connected’ so she’s not even on the short list for those plum jobs where she can just ride the coattails of Pitt, a comedy funny boy (like Stiller or Carey or Vaughn — courtesy of being with Pitt by the way) or a comic franchise, like she was pre-2005. Besides, you’ve got the obvious A-listers whose league she is not even close to being in who will be on the short lists of the worthwhile roles, you’ve NOW got all of these talented MUCH younger, up-n-comers like Katherine Heigl, Keri Russell, Michelle Williams or Anne Hathaway, or the MUCH younger Natalie Portmans and Sacrlett Johannsens and Claire Danes – and those are just the real actresses, let alone the sex pots like Jessica Biel or Alba – or the funny girls like Sarah Jessica Parker, Debra Messing or Sandy Bullock…

I mean Aniston is literally shut out, she should have followed her co-stars leads and done a smart show on HBO like Kudrow, or gotten herself some kind of syndicated TV deal like Cox, or a spin-off like LeBlanc – at least she’d give the appearance of looking busy. Now, she just looks…well sad.

good read @ 07/16/2007 at 3:37 am

Nice post by, http://brangelinafans.blogspot.com/

As I was reading my ***** magazine, issue #34 ‘Green’, I read an article titled, “Egos Without Borders – Mapping the new celebrity Philanthropy” (page 23 if you want to read it at the book store). And of course I knew they would mention Angelina as an example and they used her in a very positive light too.

Some of us here at BF know the difference between the sincere efforts that Angelina and Brad give into their causes and they have not only donated money and neat material gifts, but they got down and dirty in a few countries and really have walked the walk! The causes they speak on behalf of are not fads for them, they are committed to them for a very long time. However, in this article in ***** magazine, the phrase “feel-good philanthropy” was introduced to me. According to the author, Summer Wood, there is a difference between the do gooders who donate in the short term for a cause and obtain a personal self-satisfaction from it, and there are those who are militant about it and do it as if their life depended on helping those who are less fortunate. Here’s a snipet from the article:

“But in recent years, as more and more public figures enter the philantrhropic fray, it appears that male and female celebrities are going about their good deed in strikingly different and gender-stereotypical ways. Generally speaking, men like Bill Gates, George Clooney, and Bono are using their wealth and influence to advocate for specific policy reforms and U.S. political action on issues such as health, foreign aid, and trade. Meanwhile, female celebrities like Oprah, Drew Barrymore, Meg Ryan, and Lucy Liu (to name just a few recent examples) promote a feel-good, totally apolitical mode of philanthropy, in which women are encouraged to consider the plight of people in the developing world as a way (in part) to feel better about their own lives, and to pursue only small, relatively ineffectual solutions to the world’s problems.

While women like Melinda Gates and Angelina Jolie are notable exceptions to this trend (both speak out regularly, and knowledgeably, on policy issues affecting the health of women in developing nations and have donated large sums of their own money to charitable causes), the brand of philanthropy promoted by many female celebs sends a troubling message to their fans about what the average person can do to help. With feel-good philanthrophy, there’s no need to call your elected representatives, attend a rally, or even spend a few minutes each day reading the international news in order to better understand the issues at hand. Give, but give just a little, and then sit back and reap the emotional rewards.”
Reading this article really laid out the comparison between what celebrity X does and what celebrity W does. The way Angelina goes about her philanthropic interests is more admirable to me than someone going into a hospital ward in South Africa and giving the ill women there some makeup kits, or buying a piece of jewelry designed to act as a fundraiser tool against world hunger and sold for $24.99, but only $5 going to the actual cause. So when cynics say that Angelina is doing all her hard work for PR, I want to tell them to piss off because what she does is not easy. It’s emotionally draining, physically challenging, and it costs money: the more you have, the more you can afford to give w/o straining your own bank account. But in the long run, her kind of help is actually helping people and giving them what they really need: the care and the true attention that their plight needs.

Angie does have an impact as activist

That high-paid celebrities, many of them donors to the Democratic Party, were able to persuade the Republican Congress that they shouldn’t have to reach into their Prada bags for saying naughty lines on-air is no small feat. But it underscores the success a new breed of celebrity lobbyist has been having in Washington. A growing number of performers are being taken seriously on lobbying issues unrelated to their profession.

Here are the five most notable celebrity lobbyists in the past year, according to Capitol Hill staffers, lobbyists and nonprofit officials who spoke to Forbes:

Angelina Jolie’s crusade for the world’s less fortunate is moving Congress closer to committing 10% of total U.S. AIDS-relief funding for orphans under 18. Jolie, who D.C. insiders say was this past year’s “most effective activist” among movie stars, held private meetings with several powerful committee chairmen, including a testy one with staunch law-and-order conservative Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., about the legal rights of unaccompanied alien minors.

Hailey Says:

Such an amazingly beautiful family- inside & out- there is absolutely nothing uppity or snobbish about them- they truly come across as very humble individuals- with the good sense to realize that they are most fortunate and therefore feel a need to give back and do what they can to help those that are less fortunate… such a breath of fresh air and so rare when most of hollywood/stars are so selfish, arrogant and only care about their own self-image and the amount of $$$ they can acquire… if only others would follow their lead…

Analysis why Jen still doesnt have a man

This is so tiresome. Women get divorced every day of the week. Some are left with children whom they must struggle tofeed and clothe. Many were physically abused by their husbands. Often, the children witness the abuse and are forever scarred. NONE of that took place here.

It is simply not the end of the world when a partner leaves you. There are thousands of men who would love to be with Jennifer Aniston. But she can’t become part of a “real”
relationship for a variety of reasons:

1) She (Jen) CHOOSES to wallow in self pity rather than to start acting like a normal, strong, independent woman;

2) She CHOOSES to be so focussed on public opinion that she is willing to fabricate a relationship rather than waiting for a real one to come along;

3) She CHOOSES to blame Angelina SOLELY rather than do some self-examination to see what she needs to change to become a stronger person for her next realtionship.

The press and public are doing absolutely nothing to Jennifer Aniston. She is, however, doing a wonderful job of creating a “World of Pity” from which she refuses to emerge.

newsfour Says:

to all the haters, please read this,

Why else would you think two people who have planned their lives together and speak in the language of a ‘long term relationship’ who have planned and had a child together, who have experienced death together, who work together in each other’s projects, and who have been joined at the hip for the last two years and recently adopted a child, are on the verge and just ‘holding it together.’ I just think you’re jealous, and that you read too many trashloids I would say.

Your words would have been better suited for Brad and the ex, who’s 4 and a half year childless union, was actually more like a two year marriage considering they spent 6-8 months apart on average every year. Also the language they used for each other – that he wasn’t the love of her life (so she said), that they never considered their union had to be ‘forever,’ that it ‘could die one day.’ The fact that when they were apart, one was never too anxious to see the other, and the ex actually complained about having to get on a plane and do it.

It’s just odd to me, yet typically catty female, that women continue to see the example of Angelina’s very beautiful close-knit family…a family that works together, loves together, plays together and gives together…..in stark contrast to a distant couple that shared no goals, had nothing in common and from all accounts, most especially their own, was a rough and bumpy relationship despite the ‘golden couple’ fiction, and yet some women are just sooooo eager to see Angelina and Brad go bust…while they NEVER said ‘boo’ about Brad & Jen.

It’s quite sad and pathetic, and says a lot that some women will always root against the beautiful girl with a big heart….while the mediocre untalented stingy millionaire ‘Rachel Green’s’ crumbling relationship was given a pass every time – it seems people turn a blind eye to the reality of what she and Brad actually said about themselves when together.

Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina have voiced nothing but support and love for each other – and have stated their satisfaction over and over again with their lives, and their desire for more children. Their foundation together which has changed and saved lives and is a further testament to their committment and togetherness, is also ignored….

Delusion, they name is all women who don’t like Angelina, because they know the better woman got the good man. They fear they are not it, and never will be anything like that – Jennifer on the other hand, is an achievable goal, her average bordering on unattractive face, her lack of talent, and her self-absorption…many women see themselves in her….AJ is a threat because the bar is too high.

So we get snarky comments like these…they aren’t based necessarily in hate, just pure envy.

But that can quickly develop into hate as we’ve seen with some, the longer Brad and Angie remain happy, as their family grows, and their love remains so obvious, beautiful and strong.

anonymous @ 07/16/2007 at 3:55 am

Jen is sad? Well make a party and enjoy of this. Call your friend and make fun of her with them. Jen is sad, Jen is lonely, Jen is a bad actress, Jen is ugly person, Jen is selfish, Jen is the cancer becomed person, Jen is horrible, Jen is lurid *****, Jen must thank Brad for the money that she has, Jen is a pain for the worl, Jen don’t musted birth, Jen is stupid, Jen is without friend, Jen hasn’t job, jen hasn’t love.

Cliniqua…I agree 100% with what you said.

That is why I can’t stand Aniston, she is the main cause for the hate thrown Brad and Angelinas way, it is her behavior during and after the divorce that cause all the hate and team ****.

Look at Kate Hudson and Owen, we don’t know the whole story, and none of the parties involved gave interviews bashing anyone. Look at Reese, we don’t know the whole story, and she and ryan, has not said one word of nastiness toward each other. These parties kept their stuff in private and did not involve the media, did not invite the public in. Now they are all able to move on with their lives without hate being thrown around in public. Olvier an Kylie, all the blame was being thrown at him, Kylie actually defended him and asked her fans to stop. These parties all had enough respect to not comment on tabloid stories.

Jennifer and her friends decided to invite the public in , spew hate, invite her fans to hate, and bask in pity. It is why I can’t stand Aniston, she could end all this **** now, all she had to do was wish brad well and move on . Instead she can’t even do that.

Why?

1. Because being attached to Brad is her meal ticket, keeping the triangle going ( how jen is doing/ feels) keeps her in the public eye.

2. She (Jen) will never admit it, but she likes the attention, adulation , and sympathy thrown her way, she doesn’t want the public to feel she is less than perfect, that she screwed up.

3. She is jealous, yup, the ***** is jealous of Angelina Jolie, if Brad had moved on with Kathy Najimy type, she would have reacted differently. The ***** is jealous that it is Angelina Jolie that Brad moved on with. Look at her behavior this year alone, she starts off by buying oops I mean appearing on the peoples choice award( you really like me..lmao) Thanking her fans for sticking by her(like it is any of her fans biz about her personal life) inviting the public in. Then right before Brad and Angies Globe appearance she releases a statement to say they broke up(Was she trying to rack up more sympathy or was she dreading Brad appearing with Jolie) We all saw how beautiful Angie looked ( not even a week later aniston gets a nose job..I wonder why ..jealousy perhaps. This chick is not over Brad and refuses to let go, if she was, then she would simply wish Brad and Angie the best.

JJ is the PR of Angelina from ever. He is the protector of Brangelina fans, but the fans of other celebrities aren’t protect from him how the brangelina fans. I read the comments on Jennifer Garner thread, beh if the same comments weere on the thread of Angelina and Shiloh JJ would have delete them, but for Jennifer Garner and little Violet that are called “mediawhore” and “little fug” and “ugly baby girl” is right leave them there where all can see and read. Bravo jj you are a great person.

From the interview with Bergian/French journalist at Cannes

“Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.”

Do you love her numerous tattos?
“Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)”

“And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.”

Cliniqua why do you change your name so often. Is it so no one will suspsect you are on these boards 24/7? I think so… and don’t give me the usual guff you come up with when someone accuses you of changing your name…like “I can stand up for myself and if I want to say something I will”.. I think you change names so you can comment day and night and not look pathetic..

Over rated “actress” who gained notoriety playing Rachel on the successful sitcom Friends. She continues her career on the silver screen playing essentially that same Rachel character in every movie she does. Also known for her permanently e re-ct nip-ple s and for never wearing a bra.

ITA….
The woman (don’t wanna write her name.. afraid she give me cooties) is definately jealous of Angelina Jolie.
Angie is more talented, more caring, have more depth and mysteriousness that is both intriguing, captivating and desirable. While that woman is just a plain girl next door type of girl ( which she has already capitalised to the max)
There is nothing new or captivating or mysterious or interesting about that woman , she just is there okay..sometimes passably pretty often not very much to look at. Not much talent.. have you seen her movies.?? I have the misfortune to catch a few at HBO , half way I was totally bored and not interested , it was Rachel all over again, time and again at every single movie… She can only play one character !!! And she has milked it too death!! yukkk!!

Angelina donates 1/3 of her salary to various charity and is a caring mother and a humanitarian and dotes on Brad, giving him everything that he had ever wanted.
What had that woman ever given?? Just a nose job to herself!!!!

APRIL 1998 –

You know you’ve been doing this celebrity shtick too long when you start running into the same stars on different publicity tours and they pretend to remember you.
“That’s right! I remember you!” Jennifer Aniston gushes to me as she sits her perky but approachable self down at a cram-packed interview table in the Beverly Hills Four Seasons. Her compliment comes in response to my casual comment that we last talked in New York, while she was plugging Picture Perfect and shooting The Object of My Affection, the pretty darn good film she is now promoting.

“Oh, come on,” I say gently, not believing her for an instant. She’s accompanied by her boyfriend, Tate Donovan, who silently sits about four feet behind her. He has bad skin and looks too thin.

“No I do!” Aniston insists. She’s wearing almost the same outfit as the last time I talked to her: a too tight tan skirt that nicely accentuates her callipygian asset, a sleeveless blouse (last time white, this time green), no stockings, sandals with heels, lots of makeup but perfectly applied.

“That’s nice of you to say,” I say, keeping a mildly irritated tone out of my voice. She looks great. She makes eye contact. I want to like her.

“But I DO! I DO remember you!” she insists more vociferously this time. Then she makes a big mistake. “I recognize a lot of familiar faces today, like you and you・ she says, pointing at faces around the interview table.

Other writers disagree: “Uh, no,” one says. “I didn’t talk to you in New York,” says another. “I’m a newbie,” says an awed college girl. Strike three.

“Oh,” says Jennifer Aniston, pursing her lips and looking a little chagrined. “But you!” she says, pointing to another writer. “You were in New York, right?”

Strike four. “No,” says the writer. Then, obviously feeling bad, he adds “Sorry.”

“Oh. Oh my,” says Jennifer Aniston. There is silence. The table is uncomfortable. This is quickly turning into a debacle, so I decide to turn it around and talk about good stuff.

“Hey, let’s get this going on a better foot,” I say. “Honestly, I think this is the best movie yet by anybody out of ‘Friends’…”

She looks very relieved. “Wow. That’s wonderful. Thank you.”

“・ut do you think there’s going to be that age-old resistance to TV stars trying to get into movies working against this picture, too?” I finish. In the world of delicately phrased inquiries, I have become a master at taking a question that starts out like an ass-kiss and turning it into a spank.

Aniston is totally prepared for the question. “I think that resistance is lessening. I really do. People are realizing that everybody is an actor and just trying to do what they do. I hope it is.” There is a pause in which no one says anything, and she goes on. “If it wasn’t for the show I wouldn’t have the opportunity to do movies, you know. I couldn’t get a reading to do a feature film. Before, I was petrified, too intimidated at the thought of auditioning for a movie. But ‘Friends’ has given all of us an unbelievable trump card.”

This is a fairly honest answer, trying to be optimistic while at the same time giving insight to a young woman who doesn’t sound nearly as confident in herself as she should be considering the circumstances. Somebody asks if it was an intentional touch to keep her hair so casual in the new film ・a very un-Rachel ‘do ・and Aniston says “Absolutely.”

“Do you think a backlash is inevitable no matter who you are, after fame hits?” I ask.

“That seems to be the course of events,” Aniston responds smoothly. “I remember I was talking to Steven Spielberg, actually, having this exact conversation. I met him once when ‘Friends’ first came on, then about two years later, when the backlash was really kicking in, and he asked me ‘How are you doing with all this?’ and I told him that it was heartbreaking. You don’t expect it. You’re not prepared for it. All you know is you went to do a job・nd・nd he said, ‘They do that to everybody. It’s all part of it.’ And that was the first time anybody had said that to me. It’s just boredom. They need to stir up the people who buy ‘People’ magazine. The people who want to put you on the cover and then rip you inside. It’s just the way it works. But you have to get used to it. It’s a weird business. It’ll break your heart if you let it.”

A couple starry-eyed writers ask goo-goo type questions that she answers politely before I ask “How about your first movie, Picture Perfect? Are you satisfied with the way that turned out?”

Again, she’s painfully frank. Cocking her head to the side and looking at me like we’re connecting, she says “I don’t know how I feel about how it turned out. It was hard. Of course, I’m told ‘Never say that!’ But there were things we hoped would be different than they actually were and I don’t know if it was ready to go when we got started. I don’t know if the script was ready. But there was a lot of・h・ages were coming down right before you’d shoot a scene just to try and have it make sense・ She stops talking. I don’t blame her.

“Was it good training?” somebody else queries.

“You know what?” she asks rhetorically, “I have to say that one had absolutely nothing to do with the other. That was a whole ‘nother lesson from that. The business end of the industry. [The Object of My Affection] was a lot more creatively satisfying. You just barely felt like you were making a movie. It was an unbelievable experience working with [she lists everybody in the cast, then goes off on how great the crew, the director, etc., etc., were, before actually saying] the whole experience, that it came out so great, was just like a cherry on top.

Though I liked her new movie a great deal — a romantic comedy about a single mom who convinces her gay male friend to move in and help raise the child — I did think it copped out at the end, so I ask “Then you’re satisfied with the end product? The movie has this beautiful melancholia, then sort of ends with this happy sitcomish finish・

“Well it depends on your interpretation,” Aniston says thoughtfully. “What do you think the film is about?”

“I think it’s about how most people want what they can’t have,” I suggest.

“Uh-huh,” she agrees.

“But by the end of the film, most people have what they want.” I list a few examples. “It gets very commercial by the end.”

“Well, there was a different ending,” she says.

Three people at the table say simultaneously, “Really?!?”

Not noticing our surprise, Aniston continues, “But they have these things called test audiences・

We’re all surprised because somebody is lying. I leap into the breach. “That’s odd,” I say. “When we interviewed [director] Nicholas Hytner, he said there were no other filmed endings.

It’s immediately apparently that Aniston is the one lying. She stammers out, lamely, “Uh ・well, it was pretty much the same ending. It・t was just told ・uh ・a little differently. It’s not important actually. The characters ended up in a different area of the city, that’s all.”

Hmmm. Sensing her discomfort, a few folks ask softball questions that she answers gamely. The last question touches on the types of roles she is attracted to. So I follow up with “Have you noticed that both your major films roles have something big in common? Both characters want a man that she can’t have.”

“I like to see real life,” she answers nonchalantly.

“Is that real life?” I ask, figuring that here’s an opportunity for genuine insight into this actress.

We’re looking at each other. I’m trying to look interested, not challenging. She begins to stammer again. “It’s boring to just sort of・f・ don’t know why I love that・anting something and not being able to have it・ don’t know why I picked・hy I picked・”

I’ve talked to her before. I know her background and history. I keep pushing. “Do you think the estranged relationship you’ve had with your father might have something to do with it?”

She flinches. “I don’t know why I love these ・these roles.” Aniston touches her hand to her face. “Maybe it is something I’m trying to work out in my own life.”

The rest of the table has gotten very quiet. I’m leaning forward in my chair, toward her. It’s like it’s just us talking. I find this woman very interesting and very easy to talk to and I’m surprised at what a good actress she’s become but I’m not really sure if she has what it takes to be a movie star and I want to know what she thinks about that and there’s no time like the present so here goes. “Look,” I say, “Do you think your popularity on TV might be working against you on the big screen? I’ve really thought your performances in both movies were good, but on TV you just seem so approachable. Even in the movies, you play down to earth people. Do you think that people just want movie stars that are glamorous and untouchable? Could that be working against you?”

Disaster. Aniston arches her back in the chair and casts me a wounded look. “Uhhhh・ don’t know if anything’s working against me yet,” she says. Then she adds, her voice breaking, “Are you working against me?”

I backpedal furiously, glancing at Tate Donovan, who looks at me with nothing short of hatred. “No! I don’t want to make it sound like a negative thing! But everybody’s looking for the person who’s going to open a film with a $25 million weekend・

Aniston cuts me off. “But that shouldn’t be the main concern! If it was, I’d be doing Scream 3! It isn’t always so important to have a big hit! I want to have a career that lasts for a while!”

“I agree,” I agree. “But when we talked last year, you stated how the ultimate goal is to get from TV to film. You want to be an independent force, a star on your own. But in order for you to do that, you need to open a film. Now, I’m not trying to cast any aspersions of doubt on your talent. But your image is that you appear very accessible. Movie stars do not make it by appearing accessible.” Then, still tryi

“I agree,” I agree. “But when we talked last year, you stated how the ultimate goal is to get from TV to film. You want to be an independent force, a star on your own. But in order for you to do that, you need to open a film. Now, I’m not trying to cast any aspersions of doubt on your talent. But your image is that you appear very accessible. Movie stars do not make it by appearing accessible.” Then, still trying to throw Aniston a curveball, I instead inadvertently make it a beanball right at her pretty head. “I mean, are you concerned that you don’t have what it takes to be a movie star?”

It is now obvious that she and I connected emotionally during the course of this interview, because I have genuinely hurt her feelings. We’ve still got eye contact, and I am beyond dismayed to see that hers are welling up with tears ・genuine tears for chrissakes! — and her lower lip is trembling. “Are you・re you saying I don’t have what it takes?” she asks, her voice breaking.

“No! Please, no!” I sputter, hating myself and turning ass-kisser mode into overdrive. “I’m just saying that even though you’re such a beautiful woman, one of the things that makes you so appealing is that you seem so approachable. I mean, you’re a ‘Friend,’ we invite you into our home every week. Movie stars are different. What I’m asking is if you fear you’ll have to sacrifice what I feel is your greatest asset in order to take a chance on becoming a movie star.” Everyone at the table is looking at me with thinly veiled contempt. I don’t blame them. “Look, I’ve offended you and I’m sorry. Let’s move on to somebody else,” I finish. Literally.

i’m sorry but i prefer the photos from the first campaing. This one is nothing special!

Claude you misguided blind as a bat fool… If you have ever been literate and could actually find yourself out of the paperbag to some of Angelina Jolie’s archives, you’d see pictures of her with those beautiful luscious lips since she was a baby.
Okay if you could not find your way there…please see Shiloh , her baby…. with those lips she inherited from her mama… Angelina Jolie!!

Still in the paper bag?? oo I gave up !! go ahead think whatever you want… yess JA won Miss World title that time…okay happy now?? go off back into your paperbag and go to sleep!

Mary jane @ 07/16/2007 at 5:01 am

how can you say Angelina is not beautiful Claude?with all respect but you can’t compare both women!!!Angie is beautiful in all sences, Katie is the stepford Wife of Tom Cruise, she is not independent, she does everthing her husband says and commands, she is silly and pathetic as Tom!!!!!
Angie belongs to the group of Women in Hollywood, to which few can belong: Angie, Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Jullianne Moore…these women, are Real actress, they have Real talent, they are Real beautiful and they are LADIES!!!!

Okay, what is this suppose to prove?

You are trying too hard. Concentrate on Jolie. This is just ridiculous!

PEOPLE JA HAS MOVED ON!!

BP & AJ HAVE MOVED ON!!!

WHY DO YOU STILL WANT TO COMPARE THEM?!!!

IF YOU WANT TO GIVE PRAISE or criticize JA & AJ, DO IT WITHOUT comparing them. JA is leaving a superb life. She is happy, despite what people like you think and AJ is finding happiness in her charity work. So, leave it at that!
STOP COMPARING ORANGES AND APPLES, JA & AJ ARE DIFFERENT people.

Otherwise, such comments tend to show your insanity over some scandal that is sooooooo dinosaur old. Again, move on!!!

If you are a fan of AJ, donate to the Poor that is her message, and IT IS FOR EVERYBODY, NOT JUST CELEBRITIES. Yes, JA gives to Charity, despite your unfounded accusations of how selfish she is.

Some of you are rumbling about the charity that AJ supports, how generous she is….
If you think what she is doing is so great than follow her footsteps. Stop accusing people of being selfish when most of you have not done anything to help this world (yes, I am involved!!). Surely, accusing JA and AJ will not help in any way.

It is quite funny to read the comments that said that AJ is donating 1/3 of her income to charity. What about you, are you generous? Are you involved in some type of charity?

If you are praising her for her charity, while you seat on your derriere, then you are not any better than those you are accusing of being selfish. SO, LOOK AT YOURSELF FIRST, BEFORE YOU CAST JUDGEMENTS.

Jen's 2001 VF interview @ 07/16/2007 at 5:20 am

A FEW MONTHS AFTER THEIR MARRIAGE, BRAD AND JEN’S MARRIAGE WERE ALREADY IN TROUBLES!!!

SAID JEN IN HER 2001 VF INTERVIEW!

“It hasnt been quite simple, this ahs been the hardest year of my life, as well as the best. Teh period after the wedding was extremely intense for a lot of reasons. This was the year where I took the deepest look inward that I ever had, and asked a lot fo questions for th first time. Theres’ been a real internal overhaul- about fmily, work, everthung. Marriage brings up all the things I pushed to the back burner, the fears the mistrust, the doubtm the insecurities.”

Her post wedding crisis was aggravated byt Pitt’s absence, who spent 3 monts on lcoation in Budapest and Morroco for the Spy Game. Says Aniston, “Im so concerned with eliminating shame and low self-esteem an apologies in my own life, there’s also the thing about privacy. What do we have to hide? What do we have to eb ashamed of? The bottom line is, I dont want to live that way, it tkes so much energy, who cares?”

Note: Brad also confirmed in his recent French Interview that his personal life was turbulent when he did Spy Game.

My take on what happened after their wedding is that Aniston’s true color had come out not only her being insecure, jealous, needy and clingly type of a person but also her real physical self, as she cant avoid anymore exposing herself without too much make-up and covers. Brad probably found out how fake she was, her boobs, her eyecolor, her hairline, her nose, all enhanced by cosmetic surgeon. Lucky her, Brad is not the superficial type and really a good person and accepted her for what she is and really tried to hang on to their marriage. But alas, Aniston is a selfish self-absorbed woman, she takes everything from Brad and did not give him what he wanted, a big family! I just dont have any pity for Jennifer, frankly, she deserves to be dumped.

Now Brad is truly blessed, he got out of her, still have a great career adn more importantly he now has a very beautiful woman for a partner, with now insecurities about ehr looks and of course, has has the big family that he always wanted.

_______________________________________________

Agree with you and putting this question to you: how do you know that we are not contributing to charities???
Just because you are feeling smug with your “Yes I’m involved!!!” and have the need to post it so everybody can see and may be say …oohh what a good person you are JEN!! So you are involved, no need to be shouting. And as a matter of fact Angie also doesn’t brag or shout about her charities unlike you JEN… have to actually explain that you are involved huh!!
To your question and pretentious , self-righteous comments and accusations , yes.. I also do donate every single month of my paycheck to a few charities… but alas unlike Angelina I do not make millions and my donations are tiny in comparison but no I do not need you to tell me to do this, been doing it for years…
Most people I know for your pretentious info do donate regularly but we do not feel that we have to brag about it!!!!
What we love about Angie is she is able to what we want to do and do it sooo well
She is beautiful , talented and generous… and yess we want to be like her, emulate her.. THAT IS A VERY, VERY GOOD THING!!!

TO truthbesaid:

Okay!

I am convinced that some of you are teenagers or below 15.

By the way, my post said “most of you”. I suggest that you read the comment again.

She is beautiful , talented and generous… and yess we want to be like her, emulate her.. THAT IS A VERY, VERY GOOD THING!!!

yES, SHE IS THE SYMBOL OF PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and not human!!

339Jen’s 2001 VF interview : 07/16/2007 at 5:20 am

Yes , am getting the same reading too. from previous interview ( frm Cannes) Brad had also mentioned that this was a turbulent time for him. It’s hard marrying a guy who is 10 times better looking than you. She should have realised that before, but I suppose she was so hungry of the fame outside of friends and throne of golden couple that she was willing to put herself thru all these insecurities which bred mistrusts which probaly cause the bad awful sexx.

She has been second guessing him from the start that he would leave her for a younger, georgeous woman than when it actually happens she felt so vindicated for being selfish , never loving him fully and never giving him the children he soo much wanted.

Well you poor sad, selfish woman..what happen to you is a sell-fulling prophesy that you’ve created for yourself!!

truthbesaid @ 07/16/2007 at 5:42 am

to ohoh!!

tsk!tsk!tsk! just like all the trolls… If we like Angie , we either have to be old or teens…….
your comments were full of bragging and shouting , hurt my poor old ..err..teen eyes..
If you think she is the symbol of perfection…then good for you! Never said she was… She very, very beautiful..yes, she is very, very talented..yes, she is very, very generous..yes… but is she perfect?? Probably to her children and Brad .. yes… to me… not quite but She is as close as they come and Love her with all her imperfections…

The article is old but real one.

Angie and her fans do not hide any interviews she gave in the past.
Your comment revealed yourself than me.
You must have been preaching MOVING ON, MOVING ON to media and X’s fans. You must have told your idol and her fans to donate their 1/3 of income.

By the way, what are you afraid of ?

Don’t know if it was Brad’s interview or Angelina’s beautiful picture that got the haters so upset last night. But just in case it was the interview, I don’t want it forgotten for awhile.

1998 Gussie

The whole interview:

American cinema’s most beautiful mug returns to the screen with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

- In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?
- Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Besides, I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

-Yourself, you do not work like that?
- No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

- How did things go with Soderbergh?
- At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been informed: there wont definitely be a Ocean fourteen. It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

- Do you regret having done any of your movies?
- More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

- You, unemployed?
- Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Flavour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

- Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?
- Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a lost bullet was terrific to me. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

- You’re a working fiend…
- No, not really…

- But you say it yourself, you film a lot…
- A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it

- If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?
- To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?
-You do not? (Laughs). Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

- What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?
- If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

- By whom would you like to be directed?
/b>- By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick , with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Daiamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

- It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…
-True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

- And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…
- (Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

- You don’t love any other super heroes?
- I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me i that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things there?
Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

- Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?
- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

- The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?
- No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful reward comes above all from the public.

- May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?
(Laughs) You may always try.

- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!
- She is not one to show her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?
Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art: One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

- Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?
- I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

- How have you managed?,
By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.

- Actually, in keeping with your friend George Clooney, you are also tremendously worried about the state of our planet…
- Of course you’re going to say it is a bit hypocritical to proclaim oneself an environmentalist and to travel by plane, even if for professional reasons. But on my daily life I drive a small electric car, very powerful for that matter. I am very interested in the G8 Summits and often organize, as we did in Cannes, fundraisers to help the most destitute or for Darfur. To hang around artists such as Bono, Bob Geldorf, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and the world debt with the chief decision-makers has also strengthened my beliefs. The need to inform and the urgency of these problems remain vital. I’m going to get more and more involved in the years to come. I’d love to have done something good in my life!

Jen’s 2001 VF interview : 07/16/2007 at 5:20 am
A FEW MONTHS AFTER THEIR MARRIAGE, BRAD AND JEN’S MARRIAGE WERE ALREADY IN TROUBLES!!!

SAID JEN IN HER 2001 VF INTERVIEW!

“It hasnt been quite simple, this ahs been the hardest year of my life, as well as the best. Teh period after the wedding was extremely intense for a lot of reasons. This was the year where I took the deepest look inward that I ever had, and asked a lot fo questions for th first time. Theres’ been a real internal overhaul- about fmily, work, everthung. Marriage brings up all the things I pushed to the back burner, the fears the mistrust, the doubtm the insecurities.”

Brad’s June 2007 interview with Bergian/French interview

You, unemployed?

- Yes, I had shot some flops, like……………………………….
“The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life.(overlaps with 2000-2001)………………….

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

Aniston filed for divorce on March 25,2005. According to Wikipedia, she claimed,
” their personal reasons for entering the marridge were not completely honest and they could not sustain the deceit, both in their private and public lives.”

300 Independence : 07/16/2007 at 3:38 am
They definitely called the Paparazzi’s to take the pictures where she is carrying her daughter. She is trying hard to save her image. So staged!!!!

AJ should live her life, get help if she thinks that she is mentally deranged. Denying it is not going to work.

=====

ohh puleaseeee don’t compare Angie with the X .. B&A don;t have to call the paparazi they are always on the look out for them.. unlike the X Huvane have to call them (paparazi) so that she’ll be plastered in the tabloids. FYI your the one who is deranged get a life puleasse Brad Pitt did not dumped your sorry Ass and you’re not X-MAN …errr well … hello jen was that YOU ..bwahahahahah

BTW why would she not carry Shi she’s her daughter you really are a lunatic one.

Cute pics…does she fly the plane herself..I mean she knows how to, so why not..?

Don’t know if it was Brad’s interview or Angelina’s beautiful picture that got the haters so upset last night. But just in case it was the interview, I don’t want it forgotten for awhile.

——————————-

You should frame it and hang it in every wall of your house.

have some copies with you, wherever you go.

Pray on it, and hope that they will never be separated.

353 Yeap

Don’t need to do all that. I’m sure there will be more(interviews like this) to come and bust the balls of all the haters.

Isn’t this interview old? Why do you have to bring it now.

Oh, I get it, it is a proof that BP loves AJ.

It is a proof that their love is eternal.

For your sake, I hope they will live happily ever after.

If they don’t, it will sure burst the balls of some loonies, who think that this couple is different than the other Hollywood couples.

I just don’t know about these kids. How healthy could it possible be for the kids to be relocated every couple of weeks and start over in a new place and country? You don’t need to see the entire world when you are that little to learn about culture and be taught tolerance. Where is the stability in this family? I always get the feeling with these people that they thrive on all the hype and attention and that without it, their relationship might fizzle if they were to settle down and face the routines and every day pressures of NORMAL family life.

The annistonuts are out because Angelina pics are out with her family,going on with life and still very much together and that interview Brad did is driving them to the ocean.Last week they were saying BRAD doesn’t talk about Angelina only to have their theory crashed again,so they do the lowest thing a low person can do post articles from National ledger.How low can a person get,if they read the things they have written about Angelina they will feel sick themselves.HOW MANY YEARS CAN A PERSON DEVOTE TO A DIVORCE.

here is a quote from ANGELINA

‘WE COME TO LOVE NOT BY FINDING THE PERFECT PERSON,BUT BY LEARNING TO SEE AN IMPERFECT PERSON PERFECTLY.ONLY AFTER WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING,ARE WE FREE TO DO ANYTHING.THROW THINGS OUT THERE AND NOT BE PERFECT AND NOT HAVE ANSWERS TO EVERYTHING AND SEE IF PEOPLE UNDERSTAND’ This is why Brad is with Angelina,she is in a different league to all his exs.

Keep ‘em coming. You have drowned the trolls that brought the dirty tabloids on this thread. MORE POWER TO YOU ALL!!!!

Stability comes from their family always being together no matter where they are. As long as there is love in their family and their surroundings them travelling around isn’t going to affect them as much as you want to think and i know this from experience so who is anyone to judge on how they live their life and raise their family. They know what works for them better than anyone.

Why dont you phone the film industry and ask Will Smith,Tom Cruise,Matt Damon and all the others why they take their kids wherever they are filming.

SORRY BUT @ 07/16/2007 at 7:59 am

What’s the point to post OLD articles all over again, the last 5 pages were full of negative and postive OLD ASS articles.

Let’s live in the now, JJ is getting boring, the same people fighing all over the same thing every ******* time.

360 ASK THE INDUSTRY Exactly but apparently different rules apply to this family. Anyone else can do the exact same thing but people turn a blind eye to suit their own opinion of this couple.

361 SORRY BUT : 07/16/2007 at 7:59 am

The point being the HATERS posting the old hate articles so the fans have to post the positive sides so that they will know that the fans are not going to just sit and read all their ugly comments IF you’re BORED don’t click on JJ site so easy but your making yourself ill !!!

“IT” (Yeap) losing IT’s mind :-) “IT” hates when “IT” reads bad article about the X

I guess the interview was before the release of a Mighty Heart. That explains it!!!

BP should keep a low profile, I mean a low profile.

They should live their life and stop using the media to upgrade their image.

It is not working, find another tactic!!!

I wonder if AJ has donated 1/3 of her salary. Seriously, can this be proven?

The woman is Beautiful.

so the fanistonz got a horrible stomach ache.good for them!as long as papa pitt and his babies momma are having the best of time all2gether.hello everyone!

hello Anustin ..kamusta na?? daming pangit na fan ni babalina ngayon… mukhang asar na asar sa interview ni Brad at sa magandang pics ni Angie :-)

Wow!!! nasty trolls through the night and early in the morning. I haven’t even had coffee yet. AJ must be doing something good and right to keep a troll up all night posting negative and old articles about her. She is a small woman with a mighty persona. It is amazing that an article by a french publication where BP declares his love for AJ can send haters into a freefall. It must be discouraging to know that the man is happy with his life, AJ and his children. It is a shame that a person cannot grow and move on with his life. BP fans are the wrost next to the disguntle female who cannot let go of the past. Move on folks. A new day is dawning. AMH is a great film no matter how you slice. AJ gave an oscar worthy performance. It is a film about international relationships and promoting peace. Those who want to see it, will see it and be inspired by it. Best wishes to BAMPZS and peace to all.

I love it when all the BAMPZS fans unites and crashed all haters, trolls or paid Huvanistons posters or whatever you call them. Aha ha ha ha! I love seeing them screaming and losing their cool. Their natural color eventually shows when they back pedals, screams and blames or accuses JJ of anything when the facts and truth are being thrown at their faces. Very well done BAMPZS fans, it just shows how mature, intelligent and sensible people you all are.

As for you Faniston followers, don’t dare start a fight you can’t finish. Back to lurking.

Brad talked about everything that everybody has been dying to know: what he thinks and feels about Angie, how their relationship is and when the troubles really started in his marriage to Jen.

He cleared every single point for everybody. What else do you need after the very clear information from very first hand?

Angie looks breathtaking as always and Shiloh is so beautiful.

With love from Nice!

#390 ugly aniston,der dreamin na babalik si papa pitt kay kabayo!hehe mga ugok talaga!

Brad’s June 2007 interview with Bergian/French interview

1.Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

2 after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking

Seriously people, you critisise me for me for posting an opinion (which in a free world I am entitled to do) yet your own posts say alot about you as a person as well. At least I have the dignity to refrain from name calling. You talk of ‘haters’ and so called ‘trolls’ yet you call yourselves ‘ugly aniston’ and at the same time spread the same kind of hate only your limited to name calling and vulgarities. I am not a ‘hater’ of Brad and Angelina. In fact I am a big fan of theirs professionally. I love that they put themselves out on a limb and do so much charitible work when other celebs won’t have a bar of it. But this doesn’t mean that they are perfect people or the perfect parenting role models. Who knows how anyones kids or relationships will turn out. Glad I got you all worked up but seriously, cheer up!

#399 ugly aniston,you take care sistah!blis u babe!

PLEASE POST THE FULL INTERVIEW OF BRAD WITH THE FRENCH MAG,WHY ARE THE LYING TAB RAGS NOT POSTING IT,BECAUSE THE TRUTH HURTS

think positive! @ 07/16/2007 at 9:16 am

LMAO!!! LMAO!!! LMAO!!!! OMG!! I just can not stop laughing!!! Just a few pictures of Brad, Angie and their kids leaving Prague and a very revealing interview of Brad have made the parasites foaming at the mouth once again!! LOL!!

This is so freaking hillarious!!! I can not believe in what deep lengths of stupidity a human being can sink. How can they expect anyone to even think their idol as likable if she atrracts such kind of worthless hags to be her fans???

While they have put them selfs in a mission to put Brad and Angie down (Like they can really do it LOL!!) They are giving the woman they are fan of the WORST name she could ever have. Of course she has done plentty of things to keep it her self but having fans like that just makes it even worse.

That is why I will always say that this woman have a very small fan base. These posters that are coming here are far from fans. They are not fans of nobody. The only thing they can do is HATE. They are simply her sympathizers who thought that after her divorce they found their representation of “all dumped woman” in JA.

That is why they are here every sigle day all day long posting about the Jolie-Pitts.But when it comes to their “representative’s” support they keep their mouth shut. All they can do is say something bad about Angie or post a negative article they found on the net. That is why her movies where a flop after flop. That is why she is still unemployed. Cause when it comes to her job even her “fans” think that she is a joke.

All the good thinks they can say about her is that she has great hair eyes legs and dogs. And they are praying to God that she will find someone HOT so she will get to Brad. Like he gives a freaking sh*t!! And to fullfil they own delusions of taking revenge for their own failed relatioship.

Thank GOD that they are the minority. Yes they might be screaming all day but it’s usually one or two posters. And even those who posts on all the hatefull sites are the same people posting over and over. Sad but true.

Ida, i think it’s Angie who wrote that.

Seriously people, you critisise me for me for posting an opinion (which in a free world I am entitled to do) yet your own posts say alot about you as a person as well. At least I have the dignity to refrain from name calling. You talk of ‘haters’ and so called ‘trolls’ yet you call yourselves ‘ugly aniston’ and at the same time spread the same kind of hate only your limited to name calling and vulgarities. I am not a ‘hater’ of Brad and Angelina. In fact I am a big fan of theirs professionally. I love that they put themselves out on a limb and do so much charitible work when other celebs won’t have a bar of it. But this doesn’t mean that they are perfect people or the perfect parenting role models. Who knows how anyones kids or relationships will turn out. Glad I got you all worked up but seriously, cheer up!
*********************************************************

Aw now she’s crying for being told off. Wah wahwahwha!!!
Next time call Will Smith, Nicole Kidman or Uma Thurman and ask them why they travel around with their kids wherever they film. Had they left thier children home, you would’ve still accuse Brad Pitt and AJ of bad parenting. bottom line is you’re so full of sh*tty double standard.

Will you guys please knock off this bull of trying to use a woman’s size to determine whether she is an angelina fan or an X fan. SIZE has nothing to do whether you like one or the other, both or neither. I find this discussion that occurred when the thread first started as offensive.

This line of talk only make some Brad/Angelina fans look as bad as the hatefilled troublemakers.

she is an aware person @ 07/16/2007 at 9:22 am

357 ANGELINA IS THE BEST : 07/16/2007 at 7:44 am .

‘WE COME TO LOVE NOT BY FINDING THE PERFECT PERSON,BUT BY LEARNING TO SEE AN IMPERFECT PERSON PERFECTLY.ONLY AFTER WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING,ARE WE FREE TO DO ANYTHING.THROW THINGS OUT THERE AND NOT BE PERFECT AND NOT HAVE ANSWERS TO EVERYTHING AND SEE IF PEOPLE UNDERSTAND’

Well said!!!!!

Some of them are truly delusional.

They have to criticize JA in the most horrendous way, in order to get their point across.

It says a lot about them, and they do not practice what they preach!!!

If you say something they do not like, you are either a troll or a hater.

When you visit JJ thread about AJ, JA & BP, just remember that their argument is about taking side.

They don’t understand, that you one criticize AJ without hating her

think positive! @ 07/16/2007 at 9:26 am

Angie is looking incredebly beautiful in her new St.John ad. She is breathtaking!!!

Here you go, Brad Interview @ 07/16/2007 at 9:29 am

American cinema’s most beautiful mug, Brad Pitt, returns to the screens with his band of seductive crooks, in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean Thirteen. Exclusive interview.

In Ocean thirteen you co-star with Al Pacino, your idol. How did you feel?

Al is one of the greatest actors ever. He is very nice, open and remarkably intelligent. I have never seen anyone invest so much in a role. During lunch breaks, I’d hear him repeating his lines to be perfect at the moment. Moreover I believe he was the only one in the band to be systematically excellent at the first takes.

Yourself, you do not work like that?

No. I’d become mad if I went home at night in character. To each his thing. Fortunately, I’m able to concentrate on demand.

How did things go with Soderbergh?

At he end, we were all a bit sad, because we had been warned: there won’t definitely be a Ocean fourteen! It it depended on me, I’d have piled up for four or five more episode with the gang. Soderbergh is really an amazing, complex guy. He always manages to get new performances from his actors. He is someone who stimulates creativity without violence, he is not simplistic, quite the opposite. And he always leans towards human interest stories and I love that.

Do you regret having done any of your movies?

More than one, yes. I have made bad choices, been disappointed at some directors, and then, at a certain moment, I thought I had shot too much movies. I suffered from a compulsion that made me shoot two or three films a year and therefore some which I should never have accepted. A madness! Some are dear to me, like those I’ve shot with David Fincher, “Se7en” and “Fight Club”, but also “Seven Years in Tibet” de Jean-Jacques Annaud, the “Ocean” movies, or “Mr and Mrs Smith”. Many others, I have accepted by fear of finding myself unemployed.

You, unemployed?

Yes. I had shot some flops, like “Johnny Suede” which nobody remembers now, “The Favour”, “Cool World”, “The Mexican”, “Spy Game” and moreover I was going through a turbulent time in my private life. Happily, more exciting projects, from respected directors I admire came my way.

Like Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu’s “Babel”?

Yes. That part of an American travelling through Morroco whose wife is accidentally shot by a by a lost bullet made me whole again. Being an actor is not a hobby, it is a job that requires discipline, hard work and respect: lots of industry people only have a vague idea of what those words mean. For me, they are important, because counting back I’ve spent half my life making movies.

You’re a working fiend…

- No, not really…

But you say it yourself, you film a lot…

A shooting doesn’t take more than three or four months. After twenty years that means a lot, but I particularly enjoy the waiting period between two sets. I do like acting, but I can’t stand the idea of going back to it.

If you are not addicted to work, to what are you addicted?

To be exact. I’m not addicted to movies, but I am to the intensity a shooting brings.

- Do you think you have asserted your game?- You do not? (Laughs).

Frankly, I’ll say yes, I have.

What’s the difference between today’s Brad Pitt and the one from his beginning, twenty years ago?

If I answer that question, it will have to be a thesis. And we only have thirty minutes. If I sum it up in a sentence, the fact that I worked with people like Soderbergh, Fincher, Gilliam, Tony Scott, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mark Foster and some others has polished/refined my acting, cleaned it up and re-centered it.

By whom would you like to be directed?

By people like Michael Mann, Roman Polanski, Ang Lee… You may think that at a certain level of fame, we choose what we want to film. It is a mistake. I’m happy with, and proud of, 90% of the movies I’ve made, but I’d have loved to do some others: “The pianist”, in the Adrien Brody role, even if I know I was not up to it, “Brokeback Mountain” in Jack Gyllenhaal’s role… Above all, I’d love to work again with Edward Zwick, with whom I shot “Legends of the Fall”. He did a fantastic job with “Blood Diamonds” some months ago. I was very jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio! (Laughs.)

It seems when you were little, you wanted to be Hulk…

True. I adored a character that didn’t get red with fury, but green… I cracked myself up watching him.

And it is soon coming back… without you! You must be so broken…

(Burst of laughter.) I’ll try to survive it.

You don’t love any other super heroes?

I’m going to give you a scoop: I was asked to do the first “Spider-man”, but shooting permanently in front of a green screen to allow the superimposition of the 3D set would have made me loose my head. And I’m sure my public wouldn’t look forward to seeing me in that kind of production. I do not regret having refused.

We know Brad Pitt, the actor, less so the producer. How are things going there?

Producing films is a financial bottomless pit. You stick your little finger in the process and you get eaten alive. But I’m proud of having produced Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart”, adapted from the book written by the widow of Daniel Pearl, the journalist killed in Iraq, that was just presented in Cannes. Angie plays Marianne Pearl. I cried at the screening, she is that poignant.

The critics and the public shower you with praise, but, nevertheless, you have never received an Oscar or a Golden Globe, only two nominations. Does that disturb you?

No, that does not prevent me from sleeping, but I’ll be happy when it comes. If it comes! My logic is the most beautiful of the rewards comes above all from the public.

May we risk asking you one or two very private questions, or are you going to put on your boxing gloves?

- (Laughs) You may always try.

Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!-

She is not one to show off her feelings. And she is not going to burst into laughter every twenty seconds on the pretext of having photographers around! Everything is going well and we are as much in love as in the first day.

Do you love her numerous tattos?

Of course! It is body-art brought to perfection. Angie is a work of art. One almost ought to put her under glass in a museum (Laughs)

Couldn’t you have blown a fuse or, worse, became depressed with the media frenzy that surrounds your life?

I’ve often exploded, but in private. In public, I’ve the strength to show I can play the game. I’ve experienced the relentlessness of the media for a long time and a certain form of rejection from the professional milieu who had me catalogued and reduced to the “pretty face” shelf. But rather than getting me down, this has energized me and I have fought hard to build a carapace. When you are stalked by photographers 24h/24h, believe me, you cannot behave normally. And I am not saying this as an excuse for some attitude or other. Our contemporary culture builds idols in order to better destroy them. You are put on a pedestal and than the game is to bring down the statue.

How have you managed?

By standing back, by retreating from the public stage, by not stringing films together, by taking an interest in the politics of my country and in the environmental problems that should concern us all. That has helped me understand how some things are so relative. And after meeting Angie I became a new man, intimately and artistically speaking.
Really, following the example of your friend George Clooney, you also get worried a tremendous number of the state of our planet …

Of course, you are going to say that it is a bit hypocritical to declare itself environmentalist and to travel by air private, even for professional reasons. But, in the daily, I drive an electrical toy car, besides very powerful. I am interested in the Summits of G8 a lot and often organize collections of funds, as in Cannes, for the most divesting or for Darfour. To be next to artists as to Bono, to Bob Geldof, to be able to discuss famine and AIDS in Africa, malaria and worldwide debt with the main decision-makers has still reinforced my firm belief. The necessity to inform and the emergency of these problems remain vital. I am going to get involved there more and more in the years which come. I would so much like to have made something of good in my life!

Have things always been clear for you as to your path and all that happened to you?

- Yes. I’m mature enough to take stock of my successes, the movies that worked well, those I’ve believed in but have failed and those I was always sure were going to fail. I did stupid stuff, the media didn’t spare me and cut me down to size. But sincerely when the media are on the look out for the smallest of your gestures, your slightest word, everything you do gets blown out of proportion. I thought I was stronger than the sensationalist press, that I should ignore them and live my life as I thought fit. But everywhere in the world things have become so hellish, so out of proportion, and even so unfair I had to let it go, or I’d have died trying.

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things
..
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

we have one lunatic seeking attention,just give that loser the silent treatment,we should not reply or talkm to nut jobs

LOL, his fan base makes his life unbearable. Well done hags! Also, very funny how he admits that the tabs are somewhat true. One more thing to show that the hags have no clue what they are talking about. Love how everyone is saying “see he loves her”, yeah like he would say “no we are not in love anymore and her tramp stamps make me throw up in my mouth every time I see them” … get a clue!

Finally!Angie’s New Pics.!!I miss the entire JOliePITT’S!!Thank you JJ

Passing Through : 07/16/2007 at 1:46 am
I think I must be getting really, really old. Every time I load Jared’s home page to check for a new J-P thread I find myself saying, “Who the fcuk is __________?” So…who the fcuk is Zac Efron? There’s a gazillion threads on this guy and he looks like he’s about 12. BTW – this is a rhetorical question. I don’t care who he is…it just bothers me that there are so many threads for someone I’ve never heard of!

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

LOL I have to agree with you! When I pass one of those threads I always think, who is that? I would rather read about the Jolie-Pitts so I never take the time to find out!

I love the St.John picture and think Angelina looks beautiful. Someone mentioned the picture would be better if Angelina was looking at the camera instead and I agree, the only problem is then you would only notice Angelina’s beautiful face and not the St.John suit which was the purpose!

I hope the whole family has a great and relaxing vacation. I think they look good and Shiloh looks like a BP clone in that picture. For some reason, my vacation wish for them is always Tahiti lol!! However, I don’t remember Angelina saying Tahiti was on their travel schedule. :)

Missouri Fan, I liked your video!

WHATEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SHE IS STILL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!

as i said before,donot engage with a bunch of crazy atention seeking whores,we have a lot to talk about

The real Yeap!!!! @ 07/16/2007 at 9:54 am

Oh god, I can’t get away from this place. I think I’m slowly getting addicted. Sorry guys, I’m having a bad day. I’m from FF. You’re so right.

piper, with a low @ 07/16/2007 at 9:55 am

I see that the perpetual dim bulb had to interject her interpretation into the discussion. Nevermind that the Brad ‘fans’ are the ones who continue to throw their money his way… enthusiastically so, whereas the ones who will remain nameless, continue to make threats about boycotting his movies as well as Angelina’s.

But no, ‘Brad’ fans are the problem. :roll:

Get off the mushrooms, already!!!

That is why I call them delusional!!!!

They forget that these people are in showbusiness, and that they would say anything for people to go see their movies.

Their Fans think that every word out of BP & AJ is the ultimate truth.

They are out of touch with reality.

Loonies, stars create a facade in order to protect their career!!! That includes AJ & BP

weird morons…. are somewhere here.

Ha ha ha

he he he.lol

THE TRUTH HURTS!!!!!

kEEP ON TRYING, IT JUST SHOWS HOW DELUSIONAL, CRAZY AND OBSESSED YOU ARE.

WHAT IS IT? yOU CANNOT ACCEPT A COMMENT THAT DOES NOT PRAISE AJ.

YES THIS IS A CULT ALRIGHT!!!!!

NEWSWEEK’s Sean Smith answered questions for a Live Talk on Thursday, June 21, at 2:00 , ET, about his interview with Angelina Jolie.
WEB EXCLUSIVE
Newsweek
Angelina Jolie has faced continued skepticism during her decade-long metamorphosis from Hollywood libertine to mother, activist and UN Goodwill Ambassador. But in “A Mighty Heart,” her new movie about the murder of journalist Daniel Pearl by Al Qaeda terrorists, Jolie combines her profession and her activist objectives to deliver the most delicate, powerful and human-scale performance of her career. Playing Pearl’s widow, Mariane, Jolie has taken cues from the real-life Mariane, using the movie to confront intolerance and promote global understanding.
During an hour-long Live Talk on Thursday, June 21, at 2:00 , ET, NEWSWEEK’s Sean Smith will take your questions about his interview with Jolie, her work and ‘A Mighty Heart.’

Read Smith’s bio

East Windsor, NJ: I understand that Jolie believes that Israel has no right to exist. Does her vision of world peace mean a world without Jews?

Sean Smith: I did not ask her about Israel, but Danny Pearl, the man she just made a movie about, was Jewish, so I find it hard to believe that her vision of world peace means a world without Jews.

_______________________

Orlando, FL: Why did Jolie not adopt children from her own country, the United States, and why does she still not speak with her own father even though he’s apologized to her?

Sean Smith: I got a lot of questions about this, so I’ll answer them all here. I don’t know why she isn’t choosing to adopt American children. It’s a personal choice she’s made, clearly. I know from personal experience that poverty in other parts of the world is much, much worse than it is here, and that may be part of the reason. I know Angelina also sees herself as a global citizen. Just on a human level, it seems to me that if she’s saving three kids’ lives, does it matter what flag they were born under? That’s purely my personal take on the matter. But,as I said, I’m afraid I didn’t ask her about this.

_______________________

Birmingham, AL: Jolie talked about being not being a racist, I want to know during the interview did she make any mentions of “Z” to you? I have followed Jolie for many years but I have yet to read her mentioning “Z” and have seen one maybe two pictures of her with “Z”? I do not believe she is a racist, but one has to wonder if “Z” adoption was for publicity.

Sean Smith: She talked about “Z” a lot, actually. I had a whole section in the story about the kids that had to be cut for space reasons, and I only saw her with Maddox (Z was taking a nap), so that’s why Z’s not more prominent in the story. She says Z is really strong willed and funny and screams whenever Brad dances until he stops. And no, I don’t think she did it for publicity. She doesn’t need anymore, frankly.

New York, NY: As a development academic and mother of 2 children—with family members working for the UNHCR—in, yes, that’s right, Darfur—I think the tone of the article is absurd. It is uncritical, fawning and deeply disturbing. The mythologizing tone you take when you say, for example, “her eyes never leave his face” (when taking about her seeing her son at the end of the day) is ridiculous. What about where was she all day while he was doing these new things? Why he was in a room alone? Indeed, the vast majority of mothers do look at their children when they speak….in fact, one wonders, Mr. Smith if in regular conversations your eyes wander aimlessly? It is certainly a Good thing that she is engaged and interested in the world around her, but there are 6 billion individuals on this planet and a great many of them have dedicated their lives to the development and aid of those less fortunate. Certainly I have no doubt she is relatively well versed in the subject of Int dev/aid—but so are the thousands of specialists at universities, think tanks and in the field doggedly working on. To promote her to a seat at the Council for Foreign Affairs (as well as Davos) is disturbing at best and, at worst, a sign of things to come as we enter a Big-Brother Reality-led Simulacrum of Art representing Art representing Life. I think she is doing good with her life, and is clearly a role model for the young Hollywood set. But, and its an important But, to promote her as an Icon of the 21st century for the greater world at large, is most likely the illusion of Newsweek, which seems to be less unlike US Weekly than it would suppose.

My question for Mr. Smith is when did rigorous journalistic inquiry and critical thought (not to be confused with mindless criticism) become the order of the day at Newsweek? One wonders that if Ms. Jolie was less beautiful, would her deeds carry as much weight with the media. As her overall experience, while good, is certainly nowhere near enough to garner her the accolades she has received if she were to be held up against many of those actually working in world development (rather than, as has been the case thus far, as a modern day saint in Comparison to those simply Watching world development take place and not involved).

Still, in an article where Brad Pitt (who was in his late 30′s before he even managed to make it over to Africa) says that Jolie and Pearl are like “Churchill and Roosevelt” (?)—one can only wonder at how little else he is aware of. In such a context Mr. Smith, you did little to offer the reader with anything even approaching international-level journalism.

Sean Smith: I’m sorry that you think I was fawning. I addressed the criticism against her, I thought, in the story. Yours is the angriest question I’ve received, but there are others, so I’ll address them all here. I am not Angelina’s friend, or publicist. I will likely never speak to her again. I have no stake, one way or the other, in how she is perceived, nor do I have any concern with whether she likes the story or not. (And, by the way, I don’t know.) My job is to research her, spend time with her, think about her, talk to other people who know her, and tell you what I’ve learned. If she was a *****, or narcissistic, or cruel or stupid, I would have told you. Why wouldn’t I? What you read in this story is my experience with her. I believe her to be involved and sincere. She’s been doing it for six years, so it’s clearly not a lark. As for your question about whether she would get this much attention if she weren’t beautiful, I think you’re absolutely right that she wouldn’t. Look at all the attention you’ve paid her, and you don’t even like her. One more thing, Brad Pitt was being really light-hearted when he compared Angelina and Mariane Pearl to Roosevelt and Churchill. I thought the context of his quote made that clear, but I may have not shown that well. He was kind of kidding, and being cute. Clearly, they’re not Roosevelt and Churchill. Even to him.

Austin, TX: How well has Pax picked up English since he was adopted. Has it been difficult to communicate with him?

Sean Smith: When I was with her in November, she hadn’t adopted Pax yet, so I don’t know, I’m afraid.

South Houston, TX: Did she go to college?

Sean Smith: No,she didn’t.

_______________________

Memphis, TN: I know people will think I am just being a ‘feminist’ here but something I have noticed with Oprah, Madonna, Hillary Clinton and now Angelina Jolie. Although very different, they are all extremely powerful, influential and EXTREMELY divisive. People either love, love, love them or hate them. Do you think that the U.S. still has a problem with this type of intense power being in the hands of women?

Sean Smith: This is a great question, and I think you’ve really hit on something. And oddly, I think it’s primarily women who have this problem with powerful women. I don’t know why. Truly. I remember being really struck by people’s anger that Oprah built a schoool for girls in Africa instead of doing it here. The irony is, all of these women could just sit in their palaces and be completely isolated by their wealth, and the choose to go out into the world and try and do something positive. As soon as they do, they get attacked. It’s strange to me. I’m not saying Angelina, or any of these women, is a saint, but what harm are they doing, to anyone? It’s not like they started a war under false pretenses or even used government funds for something. I’m afraid I don’t have an answer here, but the question does fascinate me. I should probably do an entire story on this topic.

Los Angeles, CA: I’m a 30-year-old Asian American who immigrated here at age 1 with my family. I am also an activist who has been working with low income communities of color here in the US, making $11-13/hour, working 2 jobs at a time at non-profit organizations for the past 8 years. I am currently working with foster youth and poor “orphans” here in California. I know people are always criticizing Angelina since she’s in the public eye. Well I’m in that group. I used to really admire herbecause I thought she was different than other celebrities who were so full of themselves. But I’m starting to feel really irritated by headlines that say that she and Brad and other Hollywood-ers are going to save the world. I get frustrated because there are so many activists here who have dedicated their entire lives to creating change in their communities, the unsung heroes who don’t get 1/1000 of the headlines you guys do. She adopts a few kids and makes a movie in blackface and I’m supposed to believe she is going to eradicate poverty? Please! I

LOL, his fan base makes his life unbearable. Well done hags! Also, very funny how he admits that the tabs are somewhat true. One more thing to show that the hags have no clue what they are talking about. Love how everyone is saying “see he loves her”, yeah like he would say “no we are not in love anymore and her tramp stamps make me throw up in my mouth every time I see them” … get a clue!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Remeber around Troy when he used to say how much he couln-t wait to have little jen’s and how everything was fine betweeb them? DON’T BELEIVE WHAT PITT SAYS!

He will never ever say on record: I DONT CARE ABOUT ANGELINA .. he let that work to his pr lady to send it to the gossip columns.

The real Yeap!!!! @ 07/16/2007 at 10:02 am

Oh god, I hate Brad and Angie so much that I’ve got to spend most of my day bashing them online. What happened to my life? Aren’t myself delusional? Aren’t I like the loonies on here? I have no life. OMG!!

are the jolie pitts on their way to their vaccation spot,or are they off to chicago to finish shooting wanted?

Interview:

Your tumultuous relationships with stars have not helped things…
- I admit my life has not been restful. But what I do not understand and cannot bear is when people entwine my private life with my work. All the events of my personal life, particularly with my ex (Jennifer Aniston), were overblown. From the moment the public is interested in you, everything you do is subject to multiple interpretations, of which three quarters are false and biased.

Mmmmmm comments:

LOL, his fan base makes his life unbearable. Well done hags! Also, very funny how he admits that the tabs are somewhat true.

The real Yeap says:

That is why I call them delusional!!!!

They forget that these people are in showbusiness, and that they would say anything for people to go see their movies.

Their Fans think that every word out of BP & AJ is the ultimate truth.

They are out of touch with reality.

Loonies, stars create a facade in order to protect their career!!! That includes AJ & BP

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

English is not my first language, but for some reason it seems to me that Mmmmm’s interpretation of Brad’s reply to the question is way off, and so with the real Yeap. Or maybe my comprehension skills are just not up to par. Oh well, maybe someone else can enlighten me, because I really really do not get that Brad has said something that makes us fans delusional, or that we make his life unbearable. Otherwise, why would they even bother to actually sign all those autographs for all those fans who line up for their movie premieres? Didn’t Matt Damon and Don Cheadle joke that Brad spent half an hour signing everything?

Yeah, whateva. am not bovad.

THE TRUTH HURTS!!!!!

kEEP ON TRYING, IT JUST SHOWS HOW DELUSIONAL, CRAZY AND OBSESSED YOU ARE.

WHAT IS IT? yOU CANNOT ACCEPT A COMMENT THAT DOES NOT PRAISE AJ.

YES THIS IS A CULT ALRIGHT!!!!!

Lawwwd, see how delusional I am? I’ve got to pretend that someone’s stealing my name and shouts at myself. How nuts is that? Aw, the truth hurts.

439 ida : 07/16/2007 at 9:54 am
as i said before,donot engage with a bunch of crazy atention seeking whores,we have a lot to talk about
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`whores? ~~~~ my my you have a way with words.

Ah… Brad’s French Interiew, how do I love thee?

haha!!

Once again Brad has denied the American Press and been generous with the Foreign reporters. Love it!

Thanks so much to Gussie for translating, and for so many posters here for making sure everyone gets to see it.

Jared, why no mention of this wonderful interview in your headline?

Will the tabloids dare to quote from this one?

It deserves so much discussion, especially his comments about Angie, ooh la la! Brad’s always been an art lover, so how much more can he say he adores her than by calling her a museum-worthy work of art? Brad has been described as “an aesthetic being”. He’s speaking as someone who knows beauty when he sees it and has examined her from every angle and liked what he saw, oh yeah.

And the comment about being a new man “intimately and artistically” since he met her? Hmmmm….I take that to mean she has showed him what real love is (intimately) and she has inspired his creativitiy (artisitcally). That’s a recipe for relationship bliss. Brad knows how to say so much with so few words. That’s a punch in the gut to the J-P’s critics, for sure! Take that! haha!!

I like what he said about his movies, the ones he likes and the ones he doesn’t like. That was very insightful. A few years from now, I am thinking his list of favorites will be more top-heavy with his post-Angie work. She has brought out the best in him.

He and Angie have tied their lives together so well and have so much in common that I feel they will both have more successes than failures in the future. It makes me look forward to following their careers in the coming years.

just saw a pic.on PITTWATCH [with a big box}
For sure Maddox wrote the
label”Dads bags for bikes dont open needs to go on the jet”

sooooo Cute!!!

Mmmmm- Someone is in lack of some basic reading skills I see. What you failed to undrstand is that he broke all your delusions. He didn’t speak only about tabloids but about the whole media scene. He practicaly said that what ever you read about him and his relationship with his X was all completely bongus. The perception of them being the ‘perfect couple’. The thought of them of not having any problems. And of course that there was no cheating and Angie was not the reason of “breaking” an already doomed marriage. Cause as he said he was having a very trublent private life while filming the ‘Mexican’ and ‘Spy Game’ witch it was right after they got marriade. But of course you left that part out cause it dosen’t feet you delution. And last but not least he said that he loves Angie and that he became a new man after meeting her because he feels like it. He had no problem calling his marriage a ‘merger’ just from the first year. So I bet that if things wheren’t going well between him and Angie they would not be together now. But they are and they are happy being where they are and that’s a pain in you ass. Maybe you should buy a clue instead.

am telling you the way some of the haters behave make me worried,am sure most of them have psycological and mental issues.I HOPE THEY WILL FIND HELP INSTED OF CYBER STALKING US

If you want to be taken seriously use more credible sources then the ‘National Ledger’ or the ‘Post Chronicle’ (one of the same?). 100% AJ negative garanteed.
Parasite publications like these depend on the ‘tagging’ of her name for hits. (and then pissed off at her because of their own journalistic lazyness shortcomings)

I don’t think you, particularly, are delusional. I think you are just young.

This is just a waist of time. Some of you are tres tres tres young.

Him and Jen claimed happiness too and see how well that worked out. You hags believe the things they say, its called the game he just said DUH!

LOL!! Don’t worry. The haters are just spining around and chacing their tales. They are trying so hard to makes something negative out of Brad’s words so they can harp on something. It just kills them to see the truth. Your reading skills are just fine!!

LOVE ANGELINA @ 07/16/2007 at 10:12 am

It doesn’t even seem she is aware of how much privilege her and Brad have as white movie stars, and to me it just sounds like she is collecting babies around the world like they are dolls or something. I’m so sick of hearing about her and her kids. Either just be a movie star, and stop talking about saving the world and collecting babies of color; or help give a voice to all of the activism OTHER PEOPLE are doing also–she has the power, use it wisely. Don’t be a megalomaniac.

Sean Smith: Your frustration here is not with Angelina, but with the media. She does, in fact, go lots of places without cameras, and works with refugees with no one looking at all. I had a section on that in the story that didn’t make it into the final version, becasue of space restrictions. It would be a wonderful world if people who do good work—non-famous, non-beautfiul ones—were rewarded and covered as much as stars are. She is aware of her privilege, by the way. How could she not be? You know, she really could just stay at home in her mansion in LA. and go to parties and things, and adopt no one. Would things really be better if she did?

_______________________

Kennebunk, MN: What did Jon Voigt do to Angelina throughout her life that pushed her to the extreme of disowning him?

Sean Smith: He was a semi-absentee father most of her life. They reconciled during the making of the Tomb Raider sequel. When she adopted Maddox, he went on television and questioned her mental health. She said at the time that she didn’t think it was healthy to have Voight in her life.

_______________________

Eagan, MN: Does Angelina Jolie feel remorse at all for her actions and choices she has made regarding Jennifer Aniston? When Brad and Jennifer were married they had planned on Jennifer playing the role. It seems like Jolie just keeps pushing the dagger deeper and deeper into Aniston’s heart and soul.

To do what she (Jolie) has done to another will return sometime to herself. How does she live daily with herself and all of the extreme exposure while hurting Jennifer?

Sean Smith: I got a lot of questions on this topic about this, too. I don’t know why Pitt and Aniston broke up. Frankly, I can’t tell you why MY last relationship ended. The only two people who really know what happened in relationship are the two people in it. Neither Jennifer, Brad or Angelina has ever said that Angelina “stole” him. She may have. She may not. I don’t know. But neither does anyone else, and I’m perplexed by this need for us, as the American public, to cast something as complicated as a romantic relationship into a simple soap-opera narrative, with a good girl and a bad girl. I do know this in general: when a relationship is happy and healthy, neither partner can be stolen by anyone.

_______________________

South Pasadena, CA: I am so tired of people doubting this woman who is so obviously a woman of great heart and integrity. She also seems to be very well-read and intelligent. Did you get that from her? I mean, holding your own with the likes of Bill Clinton, Diane Sawyer etc…I wouldn’t think you could fake that. Did you feel as Marianne Pearl does in terms of learning things from her, that she is definitely a woman with things to say?

Sean Smith: Yes, I did feel she was intelligent and informed on the issues. I agree that a lot of people are skeptical/cyncial about it. As I mentioned in an earlier reply to someone, if I felt she was false or dumb or self-aggrandizing, I would have reported that. In the time I spent with her, I found her to be calm, sincere, focused and educated on the issues that matter to her. I’m not saying she’s a genius, just that she’s not flitting about the world blindly. And yes, I do think she is shaping a complex and humane worldview for herself. I’ll be interested to see who she becomes in the next decade.

_______________________

Warwick, NY: Does Angelina TRULY want to save the world or just look good for the media??? Personally I think she just wants to appear to be wholesome in the public eye.

Sean Smith: This is too cyncial, even for me. And it’s my job to be. She’s been doing this for six years. If it’s a lark just to get publicity, there are about 1 million easier ways to do that. Also, that headline is something one of my editors put on the story. I don’t think she’s trying to save the world, and she’s never said so. I think she’s just trying to be of use, and make some positive change. We really should not have put that headline on this story. It’s inaccurate.

_______________________

LUDHIANA (PANJAB): Angelina could do a lot of good if she chose better roles, if she is going to act anyway. So why doesn’t she do more work like “A Mighty Heart,” and less like “Laura Croft: Tomb Raider”?

Sean Smith: I agree. I hope “Heart” is the beginning of a trend.

_______________________

Budapest, Hungary: Isn’t it a bit cliche that the most beautiful woman in the world is with the most beautiful man, it seems a little contrived. When speaking with Angelina was there ever, even for a second, a sense that she was coordinating this image of herself?

Sean Smith: No. And if I had sensed that, I would have printed it. She seems very relaxed and comfortable in her own skin. I did not feel at all that she was putting on some sort of act. As for the most beautiful man being with the most beautiful woman, that doesn’t seem contrived to me. That seems logical. Being with Billy Bob Thornton seemed stranger to me.

_______________________

Oceanside CA: Is Angelina Jolie married at the present time to Brad Pitt?

Sean Smith: No, they’re not married.

_______________________

Waukegan, IL.: Did the Muslim extremists know that Daniel Pearl was Jewish before they killed him? Or did his race come out after they had already done the deed?

Sean Smith: Yes, they did know Daniel Pearl was Jewish before they killed him. They made him say, on videotape,before they beheaded him, “My mother is Jewish, my father is Jewish, I am Jewish.”

_______________________

Plano, TX: Celebrities pushing charities is fashionable again. We went through this in the 80′s with “We Are The World” and Live Aid. Most people involved in those projects have not publicly continued their support of charities in any large way since (except for Bono, Bob Geldof and a few others). What are the odds Angelina will continue this altruistic behavior, espcially since it seems to have started while she was involved with a married man and can be spun as good PR? I will respect her if she is still involved in these charities 15 years from now. She’s no Bono or Audrey Hepburn, yet.

Sean Smith: She started her refugee work four years before she met Brad, so it’s not accurate that she did this to bolster her image. As for whether she’ll contiune, I suspect she will. She seems very sincere about it, and interested in the world. We’ll see.

_______________________

Lisbon: I know that she donates one-third of her income to charitable causes, that she has traveled to some 20 countries over the years as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees… but still people only seem to remember and talk about her past… How do you think Agelina feels about that?

Sean Smith: I suspect it bothers her—it would have to—but she also knows that it’s the way the world works. It’s funny, people complain about the media trivializing things, but almost all the questions I got on this live talk were all about whether she stole Brad from Jennifer and why she doesn’t do more in America. It seems to me that she—all of us –are global citizens, not just Americans, and if life is better in the worst parts of the world, it is better for us here, too. That just makes sense to me. Thank you all for your questions. This has been an educational experience for me. To say the least.
Sincerely,
Sean Smith

I AM SOOOOO NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT LOSER POSTING ALL THAT CRAP. YOU MUST BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO ASKED SEAN SMITH ALL THOSE STUPID QUESTIONS. I REFUSE TO RESORT TO ANGER, I DON’T KNOW WHY ARSA FELT THAT WAY. I LEFT AMH WITH SUCH A LOVE AND RESPECT FOR EVERY SOUL AROUND ME AND IN THE WORLD. I ALSO FELT SORRY THAT MARIANE LOST SUCH A GREAT MAN. I AM ALSO HAPPY SHE DIDN’T LET HERSELF BECOME A VICTIM. ANEGLINA IS A GOOD WOMAN AND I AM HAPPY THAT I CAN LOOK AT HER AND BE PROUD TO BE A WOMAN. I HATE THAT THIS RACE THING WAS BROUGHT BACK UP. MARIANE WANTED ANGIE TO PLAY HER, AND FUTHERMORE THE MOVIE IS BASED ON THE BOOK, READ IT!!!!

I ALSO MADE THIS VID A WEEK AGO. HOPING PEOPLE WOULD SEE THE MESSAGE AND STOP THE HATE.

PT I can see your point about Zac Efron, but you see the guy that runs the blog must think about his young “clients” too :)) I have a 11 yo son who knows who he and the entire cast of these Disney’s musicals are. Of course being a brazillian kid who goes to a german school he can’t read english, but I’m sure lots of north american and british kids do follow his threads, so…
BTW, I’m not very frequent here, but I love when everyone just ignore the haters, and it’s so annoying when people answer them and give them the attention they want.
Nice week to everyone

Your waisting your time. Some of them are uncapable of taking the truth for what it is.

they do not understand that AJ & BP are in showbusiness.

Maybe in a few years, he will say that he was living a tumultuous life and now he is a completely different person with a new woman.

WILL BE BACK,IGNORE LOSERS HAVE FUN

Jen bluffed Brad! @ 07/16/2007 at 10:19 am

I believe the reason why Brad and jennifer had a post wedding crisis, was taht jennifer had actually tricked Brad into marrying her buy pretending taht she was preggy or are about to get pregnant. They chose to release the pci where Brad was looking at her belly.

I bet aniston aniston just lied to him and said she had a miscarriage! And Brad at that time was insecure about his career as he said he had to do films just be employed. At the time of their marriage aniston was on the rise because of Friends popularity and her attachment to Brad, they were the golden couple. Brad stayed with her to save his career, as he said their was an opening for a golden couple and their marriage was a business merger.

Are you related to BP & AJ?

You must be, because you sure have insightful information about what happened in their marriage.

By the way, why are you bringing JA in this thread?!!!!

b4 bitching @ 07/16/2007 at 10:25 am

338 ohoh!! :
======
I and my husband donate regularly , yearly , never stop to one of the legitimate charity in our country. We’re not as rich as Maniston but knowing the small amount of money you donated could help a kid’s life and help a family, always make once feel good.
” She do not believed in charity ” come directly from the X horse-mouth on her Vogue mag. interview 2006. She personally do not believed charity, Do you expect her to donate momey secretly as secret as the old KGB or CIA, doing it quietly and undercover. blah. I don’t believed.it. This is a woman who had been in the hollywood circle for 15-16 yrs. how do you think she survived hollywood? of course, aside from the help of her PR guru Huvane, personally, I think she ‘s not dumb, she’s smart, calculative and manipulative. And who do you think leaked those news to people’s or other tab. about her love-life, about her new boyfriend. yes, her close friend under the consent of Huvaniston.If you believed Maniston was the innocent, naive, girl next door then you should believed Lyndsay Lohan, Paris Hilton were reborn christian.

458 Mmmmm- That’s is the best you could come up with?? There where multiple sighs throught their marriage that screamed “unhappiness”. Brad even said in 2004 that “He doesn’t know what she is after and she doesn’t know what he is after”. Even in their first year as a marriade couple both where admiting that it was very tough and hard to get through. Brad was even in therapy at that time. These where all out there for all people to see. They said all of it through their interviews. But as I said for some reason you chose to ignore them.

I have never read any similar thing neither from Brad or Ange talking like that about their relationship.On the contrary they are always talking in a very loving and compassionate way. I have never seen them being apart from one another more than a few days. So stop comparing what was going on in their past relationships. People are changing and growing.

456 To the LOONY who is trying to pass as the REAL YEAP says:

I don’t think you, particularly, are delusional. I think you are just young.

Signing autograph is part of his job.

This is just a waist of time. Some of you are tres tres tres young.

************************************************************************
If signing autographs are part of movie stars jobs, then Tobey Maguire, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis and Halle Berry are not doing their jobs. Weren’t they in the list of the worst autograph signers, with Spider-Man topping the list of those who DO NOT sign autographs? So Brad and Angie don’t really have to do it, and yet they do.

And who is WASTING their time? I am a fan, I am on vacation, so I can blog. What about those haters who post their hatred for Brad and Angelina the whole day? I might be young, but even I know that is really sicko, to be wasting your time posting about people you hate. That is so beyond weird!

I think the hater, who continues to come to this thread and try to change minds is quite funny. And is a perfect example of a certain segment of Aniston fans that will never let go, that will never be happy until Brad and Angie split. That finds pleasure in making up or twisting things to fit a certain scenario in their minds. They are pissed because Brad by all accounts is actually happy. He accomplished what he said he wanted. He wanted to be a father and he is. He is a father and I don’t think these haters realize, Brad Pitt is exactly where he wants to be in life. Jealousy is a funny thing, yes jealousy, they will never admit it but Brad is a good man, great partner and excellent father. Ya see in their mind they will never admit that Aniston lost a good man , Is Brad perfect , NO one is . However, they are pissed because Brad seems to be everything that they want for their idol. Handsome, Rich, Successful and a man who values fatherhood. Until Aniston finds this ( maybe she has) they will never let go of Brad and will never stop hating the beautiful woman who has a good man by her side.

Please don’t hate me. I must call you children but I’m child too. I’m in love with Jennifer Aniston and her long chin. I’m using a passive-agressive method to bash Brad and Angelina. I want to give my sperm to Jennifer Aniston.

468 Jen bluffed Brad! : 07/16/2007 at 10:19 am
I believe the reason why Brad and jennifer had a post wedding crisis, was taht jennifer had actually tricked Brad into marrying her buy pretending taht she was preggy or are about to get pregnant. They chose to release the pci where Brad was looking at her belly.

I bet aniston aniston just lied to him and said she had a miscarriage! And Brad at that time was insecure about his career as he said he had to do films just be employed. At the time of their marriage aniston was on the rise because of Friends popularity and her attachment to Brad, they were the golden couple. Brad stayed with her to save his career, as he said their was an opening for a golden couple and their marriage was a business merger.

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

I don’t know about all this, but obviously *something* happened to put him in therapy with suicidal thoughts and for her to say their first year of marriage was the “worst of my (her) life”.

At the very least it shows they were unhappy and not right for each other.

How typical of the J-P critics to now say they are faking it, they are lying. If Brad and Angie talk of their affection and attraction for each other, fannytoons say they are faking. If they do not speak of each other, they hate each other as well. Sounds like fannytoons are presuming to know what goes on inside the J-P’s house to me….same thing they accuse us of.

Either way these ignoramus critics will have something negative to say.

Meanwhile, the J-P’s rock on and on and on until the break of dawn. Ha!

Time will tell.

Until then, STFU.

The observer @ 07/16/2007 at 10:35 am

You all need to keep your boxing gloves.

I find it hard to read through all the gabbage and hate from both sides of funs ( JA & BPAJ). Why does AJ have to be bad for JA to be good and vice versa? Cant they both be good people? Granted, after the divorce there was alot of nastyness and animosity (and still is among funs).
Also granted JA has posed and shown up with some crazy stories/people/events everytime BP or JA is promoting a movie. These are very human reactions. Divorce does that to alot of people and you dont have to be nice and lovey dovey with your ex in order to show you have a life. JA is still in pain, and everytime she sees pictures of her ex with AJ am sure it hurts even more. These are purely human reactions.
What I cant stand is the fact that some of you take pleasure in calling her all sorts of names. Its like kicking a dead horse, she is down, now beat it let her be. I dont think she is ugly, average, yes but ugly, no. She has a great body and lots of money in the bank. From the friends royalties, she does not need to act to get a check so stop it with the failed actress crap already.
Angelina on the other had is beautiful no question and very level headed. Am sure BP pursued her no question and getting involved with him was a decision well thought. If it works it works, they look very happy in love and content. Calling her skinny, ugly, ..hore and all sorts of names doesnt change who she is. We all know she is well above average and has alot going an for her more than any other poeple on this planet today. She has a man who seems to adore her and very beautiful kids and an even brighter career. And of course her movie did not bomb, if you know anything about this movie you would not even bother showing that much ignorance. She is a well sort after actress, granted she will not lack a job in years. So people if you can not come to a thread and just discuss positive attributes about stars that you like without drawing triangles and setting daggers, it would be best for you to take a looonnnggg walk. It is getting too old and exhausting to keep trashing each other repeating the same old accusations over and over again, digging from old interviews, magazines to prove a point. When is it enough?? One wonders.

Not a contest LOL, best I can come up with? That is the problem with you hags. You think it is about winning, it is called difference of opinion.

Right! He just called her X. Just like we do, haha!! That did make me laugh. He did at least call Gwennie “Paltrow”. I bet Brad has called X a few choice words on those time he “exploded in private”. He knows what a manipulator she is, and he knows right where to lay the blame.

If you think that Brad and Angie raising four kids together is a less commitment than a piece of paper labeling you as “marriade” that can be tear apart anytime then you have to rethink what “commitment” really means.

For those who can’t let go, maybe for some delusional problem. Always remenber this qoute from Sean Smith,NewsWeek excerpts from his dialogue to some people. “WHEN A RELATIONSHIP IS HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEITHER PARTNER CAN BE STOLEN BY ANYONE.” So very true, I like that quote.

i didnt realize that but now i do and i know he loves our Angie and he would never do that to her.

isitreallythatserious? @ 07/16/2007 at 10:57 am

Wow, the loon detectives are out and about today I see. Why b/c Brad didn’t help them continue their crazy belief. Get with it and that IT is reality. Brad and Angelina could break up tomorrow but the our forever connected through their children and nothing could break that.

I don’t need to put a spin on Brad’s interview to make myself feel better, I just read what he says and what he said is that 1. he is in love with Angie as much today as the first day 2. and the woman has changed him for the better. That is in black ‘n white and your great comeback…..’what is he suppose to say?’ ..LMAO.

He could have done what you and those fake Angie fans have been saying he has been doing which is staying quiet on the matter of his relationship with Angelina. It was folks like yourself that said that it was a sign that he didn’t love her b/c he didn’t saying anything real romantic like he did with his ex’s. Well, now that he has and all you can say is ‘what is he suppose to say’. The guy can’t win without losing but truth is nothing Brad can say or do will prove anything to you b/c you will believe what you want and that belief you have is that somehow Brad will go back to his ex wife, take Shiloh and have the family with her he has always wanted.

And you call me and others loons? If this common sense and logical thinking, I prefer to stay a loon.

Exactly, very good point NOT! Look at Alec Baldwin and his wife and every other single parent raising kids in the world. You are right, having kids keeps a family together. Please do your research on divorce with kids involved .. kids do not make ppl stay together. I would say for the average person that might apply but to celebs that theory does not apply. Angie will be known as “Brad’s babies momma” Tick tock tick tock!

LOL. I noticed that too. He still address Gwyneth as Miss Paltrow after their separation. but with you know who. it’s left as ex. not even x-wife nor her first name.

———————————————————————–
It seems your ASSumption is that ‘marriage’ is the only form of commitment two people in a relationship can make. That is assinign! There are many couples that are committed to each other without the institution or certificate of marriage.

One thing that can NOT be denied whether fan or critic is since they have been together neither have spent more than a week without the other…when one is on location the other is there with them looking after the kids. Absent a few days for business meetings or miscellaneous work, they travel together as a family. That’s commitment to their family…that’s commitment to each other. Deciding to be together knowing the hell that they would go through because of it took a helluva lot of ‘courage’. They are living their lives in spite of all the sensationalized garbage leveled at them.

Angie is Brad’s lover.

Brad is Angie’s lover.

I love how you all spend you time and energy figuring out history on a relationship that wasn’t your own. If either side of this “lets keep the bermuda triangle going cuz I don’t know how to be creative in my own life” would just drop all the haters stuff and just be Patient and wait for another 5 years, We will all see if Brad and Angelina are going to make it or not. No matter how many times you post hateful remarks, none of you are hurting Jennifer, Brad or Angelina.

bampzs donot fall for the trap,ignore the mentally insane loser,he/she/it just wants attention,we can talk within ourselves and not talk to idiots

seriously i dont see what all the fuss is about angelina jolie she’s not even that good looking, and that picture of her is horrible especially with that top she is wearing. She makes out she’s this wonderful human being but actualy she is just someone that had an affair with somebody else’s husband to me! shiloh is cute though thanks to her dad.

Mmmmmmm keep those brain cells circulating until you come to an original thought in your head. Brad didn’t leave you….man…woman…whatever you are…STOP making the X into this perpetual victim with no spine or life. Come on we are all have been throught some dark patches in our lives. But, we pick ourselves up and Move on. Be a man or woman with depth Mmmmm try a little sobriety, intelligence and move the fcuk on….

true. Brad spent lots and lots of months without x when he was filming Troy but he couldn’t even stay a day without Angie when he was filming in New O, THAT THEY EVEN BOUGHT A HOUSE THERE couse they couldn’t manage staying away from each other.

503 Mmmmm :

Its true children do not assured a couple could stay togethr, but there’s a research which shown that a couple with kids tend to have a longer lasting relation than a childless couple.
and what make you so sure that Brad and Angie’s relation are vulnerable ? I would like to heard it from you.

COMMITMENT @ 07/16/2007 at 11:11 am

Marriage can be dissolved anytime … but children are PERMANENT and POWERFUL bonds that can never be broken.

Brad and Angie are LINKED forever through their children.

we donot care about lasting or not,they are already connected for life through their children i love and respect them both individually,and am happy that they found each other and love each other

MARY-LOUISE PARKER TALKS ABOUT KISSING BRAD PITT

How lucky is Mary-Louise Parker? The sexy actress, who turns 43 on Aug. 2, not only got to share some screen time with Brad Pitt in their upcoming movie The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, but she was able to steal some on-screen kisses with the hunk. So does Brad’s sultry sweety Angelina Jolie have anything to worry about? Probably not, if you believe Mary-Louise, who recently split from her Weeds co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan. When OK! caught up with her last week, she described the smooches as “very chaste kisses — VERY chaste.”
In the film, Mary-Louise plays the wife of notorious wild west outlaw Jesse James, portrayed by Brad. “He’s a lovely fella. I liked him a lot,” Mary-Louise said, “and I think Brad’s really amazing in the film.”

OMG! Some of these postings are totally hilarious! Thanks for keeping me entertained.

Also, to egatron #411, how could you possibly say I have double standards when you don’t even know what my standards regarding Nicole Kidman and Uma Thruman are? LOL. Maybe you should learn the definition of the term before you use it. All I am saying in regards to this situation is that it’s nice to see Brangelina putting their work before their kids again (that’s sarcasm in case you didn’t get it). You don’t have to like it, but dude, you totally need to calm down.

They are not parading their kids…They don’t live normal lives like we do. They are wealthy, world class, stars, artists, actress, actor, activists and world citizen. They are living the life that is normal for them. Enough already, you would all trade places with them in a minute…admit haters…

If anyone is parading their kids it was P&B when they landed in the US and then the next day going to Toy R US. All Brad and Angelina did was get on a plane and you can’t even see the kid’s faces.

You’ll be waiting a long while for this fool doesn’t have the answer. This person is just beyond sad for hoping that a couple breaks up. She/he/it doesn’t know the future and really even understand basic written english if her/him/it comment say anything.

Please stop engaging the haters. How many times are we going to go over the same stuff?

505 Mmmmm – Of course you misunderstood what I said or you don’t want to understand what I said. I wasn’t saying that kids are keeping two people together. Whatever happens to their relationship they will always be connected throught their kids. They will always be their parents and they will continue to raise them as they do now. That is something that will never change.And it is quite laughable to think that if children can not keep two people together but being marriade to each other can.

Only love and respect, same goals and of course free will can keep two people together. No matter if they are marriade or not. And Brad and Angie have all of it. They want to be together and that is why they are together.Not because they have to. They both love their kids like nothing in the world and they want to raise them together. It is just that simple.

People are the same everywhere. Relationships can fail and succed in the whole world. Not just in HW and not just outside HW. And I think for Angie to be known as the MOTHER of Brad’s kids is something wonderfull. It is way much better that being know as an EX who can not be refered by her own name. Just an EX. You can stop being a wife or husband in a heartbit. But you will always be a mother and a father.

She had positioned herself as the victim and anything Brad said at that point would have been spinned to be cruel.

There’s a tidbit news from another site.

The couple Angelina and Brad heading to Yorkshire. According to this “little news”, Angelina is looking at a four-bedroom cottage in Richmond, North Yorkshire.

Question, is Yorkshire part of UK?

Also from the same site: Victoria Beckham is caught saying that American actress’ have the tendency to dress down. These American actress’ seems to be in keeping to go to Starbucks in tracksuits bottoms and Ugg boots.

Oh, oh trouble now for Victoria she’ll have to dress down herself. When in Hollywood do as the Hollywoodian do, right

Throwin the cult rule book at me, insulting my IQ. Why is this about Jen again? Another rule, insult and insist they love Jen and oh yeah insult Jen too.

517 +++ :

It is called reality, they are celebs chances are not good. Everything is against them including the media just as BP states, being built up to idol (like you all do) to only try to destroy. Angie is hopeful that it will continue to make them stronger but they are human and everyone has their break point.

I dont care either way I just think its gross the way all you women unexcusable behavior (in your real life) acceptable on this blog. The sad way all of you excuse things would never be acceptable in your own life. If your kids came home with a chic with a couple kids and said they wouldnt marry, adopting kids left and right .. everything is ok for them. You all would find murder acceptable as long as B&A did.

Now I am done with you fruitcakes, bored to tears of your sad reasoning on why they will be together forever!

In April 1998, Jennifer Aniston was still with Tate Donovan. That post upthread is to prove that Aniston dumped Tate the minute Brad appeared on the radar screen. All you have to do is to compare Aniston’s 1st date with Brad (actual date and year).

This is to prove how materialistic she is. This is also to prove how fraudulent she is.

a quote from Donovan from imdb.com

Personal Quotes
“When I told everybody I was doing “Hercules”, they felt really sorry for me. They thought I was so down on my luck that I was having to do extra work on the TV series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” (1995).

Your name is funny, just as funny as your post. commitment to your family does not mean you are commitment to each other, it is a nice safe thing to say. Tick tock tick tock
——————————————————————-Mkay…whatever you say bb. They are not committed to each other. They are committed to their family. Logic tells me if it was just about the family, they (speifically she) would not carry on the pretense of allowing the public to believe they were together when really that wasn’t the case. Couldn’t possibly be that they are committed to each other and get this….wait for it…it’s cause they ACTUALLY want to be. Carry on as I’m not in the business of changing koo koo clock minds. Tick tock tick tock….HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

P.S. Since you seem to know for fact they are going to break up, you got the lotto numbers? I don’t feel like going to work tomorrow!

to yeap,

Go outside and take deep breath, you surely need a fresh air! And your brain needs oxygen if you have any by the way….

Don’t worry about the weather in Nice because it’s been lovely.

yeap, it seems that the truth has hurted you and the other maniacs bad. All of you have come out off your cages after the interview of Brad. It seems that his words were like a good kick on your very private part of your body.

When the haters vomit more hatred, this means one thing: they are disturbed by the Jolie-Pitts again.

as for the stupid ass talking about angies looks,are you for real,may be you blind,BAMPZS CAN WE HAVE MORE VIDEOS,SO THAT I DONOT HAVE TO TALK TO FOOLS,WHO COME WITH THE SAME OLD THINGS

Throwin the cult rule book at me, insulting my IQ. Why is this about Jen again? Another rule, insult and insist they love Jen and oh yeah insult Jen too.

The cult rule book…WHAT??? what would you know about such book? Are you its author? I insult your level of intelligence not your IQ..I know it is the size of your shoe size. I wonder at your ability to comprehend complex thoughts and analyze complex problems in our world, and pop culture. I question the validity of your reasonings..they seemed unstable.

AS for Jen..I have no feelings one way or the other about her. I am not a fan nor a hater. Therefore I don’t go to her threads and complain about her. Unlike..you.

There’s a tidbit news from another site.

The couple Angelina and Brad heading to Yorkshire. According to this “little news”, Angelina is looking at a four-bedroom cottage in Richmond, North Yorkshire.

Question, is Yorkshire part of UK?
=———————————–=

Yes. Yorkshire is a historic city in Northern England. But I highly doupt that anyone knows where the Jolie-Pitts are heading. Which site is that??

hi bampzs fans
that’s a good day
i love angie , she’s very beautiful.

I hope the Jolie-Pitt family is having a wonderful time away from the papz. Maybe Angie will be pregnant when they appear again!

please says,thanks so they heading to chicago,good for them

TBU has been discussed many times in all BRad and Angelina forums.

It’s true that Brad did say in his troy interview that he wanted little jens running around. He was I believe sincere and would have stayed in the relationship with Jen had they been able to come to terms about their relationship at the time they said it.

Brad therefore had not immediately discarded X after he met Angelina as that najimy woman implied, (who also implied that fatherhood was an abstract concept for Brad so I would say that this najimy woman is rather inclined to EXAGGERATE). He was committed enough to his relationship with x to try and work on the relationship even though he might have been more than half in love with Angelina. He was committed enough to fight his feelings and try and re-establish relationship with X – a statement Courtney Cox herself made in the VF interview. M&MS started shooting in january 2004 and X and Brad didn’t announce their legal separation until Jan 05, even though X herself said she thought her marriage was over by summer 05. Clearly Brad didn’t just walk out.

As some fools have seen fit to publish national alleger and post chronic lies as if they tell the truth, then perhaps it would be worth recalling Lainey who had another version of the story which would fit in with what Brad said and why I believe Brad told the TRUTH. According to Lainey, Brad had enough commitment to his marriage to try again with X. X came to Cannes for Troy and they actually had a holiday together and things seem to have improved. Then X signs up for another 3 movies, without telling Brad. That was the last straw and as X could not be honest (which might tie in with X herself admitting according to wikipedia that the marriage had been dishonest from the beginning), then neither would Brad bother. So then at some stage between troy, finding out that X had signed up for another 3 movies and fighting his feelings for Angelina, Brad and X called it quits.

Now of course, there is no need to believe Lainey – who is just a gossip columnist. However, seeing as Lainey did correctly get sufficient inside information to state that Angelina and Brad were thinking of having Shiloh in Africa and I know that she did bother to check with the charity to see if Angelina dn Brad actually made the promised donation to the namibian charity I BELIEVE Lainey has more credibility than national alleger, National enquirer and Post Chronic Lies, which amongst other things, published a report that Brad and Angelina failed to make the promised donation to the charity in Namibia then NEVER EVER CORRECTED that LIE even though the charity confirmed that they had ALREADY RECEIVED THE MONEY.

Who knows what the truth is between Brad, Jennifer and Angelina? Who knows if Brad is going to leave Angelina by the end of the 1st week of August 2007, after AMH promotion as some INSIDER has stated? Perhaps INSIDER IS RIGHT. Perhaps Brad is on his way to this “secret” meeting with Jennifer taking shiloh with him and offering his offspring to jennifer as his gift right this moment. LOL.

However, I’m willing to put my money where my fingers are and type that I’m willing to make a bet that if Brad and Angelina havent announced separation by 10 August 2007, then that party should pay US$100 to the UNHCR Fund and if they do separate, I will pay US$100 to the UNCHR Fund.

Thanks j@r3d for the new thread and images. She looks beautiful as always!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the word parade connotes an event that is out of the ordinary? Something that one doesn’t see everyday?

Brad and Angelina, loading up their gear, their entourage, and their kids on a private jet is not out of the ordinary.

Posh and Becks, dressing their boys in matching outfits and taking them to Toys R Us during their first weekend of residence in the US, seems out of the ordinary, but given that they are getting their bearings, it’s too early to say that they are parading their children.

I wish haters would get over the fact that the vast majority of BAMPZS don’t see a competition brewing between the Beckhams and the J-Ps. And correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t there a story about Maddox participating in some sort of soccer thing associated with David Beckham? So it’s entirely possible that these two families will be cross paths; Tom Cruise doesn’t have the Beckhams on a tether.

This is not the Jetsons meet the Flintstones, people!

You have a right to your opinion but you are making this way more personal than it should be. What you wouldn’t go for in your life doesn’t mean another wouldn’t also. People are different and that is what makes this world so beautiful is our differences.

Now what I don’t like about your post is simple….you are projecting your personal life onto the JP’s. It’s a new century hun! Everyone doesn’t have to get married nowadays to make a commentiment to each other. Look at the numbers in this country, half of all first marriages end in divorce. Numbers are high b/c people are raised with the same belief you got that marriage somehow magically binds you to each other only to find out it’s easier to get a divorce when life shows you that you are not meant to be together. People are rushed to make a commitment to each other way too soon nowadays and I love to see people wait to make sure but to say that marriage is the only way for a couple to be together forever is just insane. Look at Reese and Ryan…headed for divorce but couples like Susan S./Tim R. and Kurt R./Goldie H, have been able to maintain for years without a piece of paper.

If you are Brad’s parents, I’m sure they were shocked but if it’s clear to you that your son is hell bent on being with that woman with two adopted children and all…what can you do about it? NOTHING BECAUSE IT’S NOT YOUR LIFE, IT’S YOUR CHILD’S.

Last but not least this comment:

“Now I am done with you fruitcakes, bored to tears of your sad reasoning on why they will be together forever!”

Don’t you find it just as sad for you and others come here to force your opinion on others only to show us reason why this couple will fail tomorrow? Doesn’t that make you just as much of a fruitcake to keep coming up excuse for things that show that maybe just maybe this couple is really in love with each other and happy that they have created a family together? But I know, truth, reasoning and logic isn’t something that everyone has and it’s clear to me that you are one of those individuals who suffer from a lack of this!

Angelina Jolie Worship Run Amuck

By Kim Jaynes
Jul 12, 2007

***

Why is Rosenbaum outraged? Read this: “In post-9/11 America, Angelina Jolie is the best woman in the world because she is the most famous woman in the world — because she is not like you and me.” Uh-huh. Jolie tries to play it up bigger than she is, and she thrived on that for a while.

She travels the world extensively in private jets, lives in multi-million dollar homes and lectures on poverty. She charges millions for photos of her latest adopt an orphan program and then heads to work on yet another film and hands the third world child off to a nanny. The hypocrisy is thick.

===================================================================***

I JUST DON’T KNOW HOW TO TEACH A MORON?….Sometimes people just don’t get it.
Angelina teachs about poverty is for us (the fortunate ones)to give/donate some of our time or money to the less fortunate people on the other side of the world. So we will not be ignorant anymore, that a lot of people are dying from poverty.
IT’S NOT A HYPOCRACY, SHE DOESN’T TEACH US OR LECTURE US TO LIVE LIKE POOR PEOPLE. She did donate her time and money, she doesn’t need to live like poor people. That’s why she does all this movie and get paid milions of dollars so she could help the poverty. HOW PEOPLE CAN BE SO MORON TO UNDERSTAND (Rosenbaum)?

I just don’t understand this madness at all. What are we, fans, hoping to get out of this? Its like some sort of empty drug..eek..so many people suffering “withdrawal symptoms” because JP family was out of print for a day or two!? We clearly all have far too little to do with our time.

Then this interview
“- Everything is well with Angelina? Because, when you’re together, she is not very smiling!”
Wtf? EVERY single public appearance photo of them I’ve seen has her smiling broadly. If they expect her to smile in her private time when 50 + photographers have their flashbulbs pressed against her face and are shouting at her kids then they are quite insane.

Then this madness about Ange’s off screen persona somehow being responsible for how Mighty Heart is doing in the box office. Has everyone in the US (and Australia evidently) eaten of the crazy mushroom or something? I can’t wait to see it once it comes over to Europe. People are “offended” that they painted Angelina a shade of brown to make her look authentically half black!? Like it’s her fault! And no-body thinks to blame the producer let alone director who are actually the people making these types of decisions? Insanity. Pure insanity.

And this entire Jenifer thing is one mass-hysteria-come-projection. Brainwashed people railing against the invisible unknown predator the only way they know how. It’s pitiful. I hope it stops soon.

In case you are wondering what prompted this rant – I have found myself mindlessly attached to the screen, much like the rest of you, after only a day or two of reading these forums and looking at couple of pictures. I found myself trolling the web for more pictures and then when the feeling of emptiness didn’t go away, looking for more, then more and more…And I had to stop myself. This is crazy. It stops here for me. And I hope for some of you too. There are a lot of perfectly good minds who visit here and that are practically eaten alive by this insane addiction. Just say No!

Good luck to ya’ll

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

ITA. At the time BP talked about “little Jens” he was trying to make his marriage work. He had not given up yet. He was willing to give up the life he could have with AJ, to build a family with JA. But, JA’s goal at the moment wasn’t family. She wanted a movie career. That’s why things didn’t work out for them. I can understand if they were both in their 20′s to wait for having kids, but JA was 35, and BP was 41. That’s already old for starting a family. I am so glad they both decided they are not for each other.

Interesting @ 07/16/2007 at 12:07 pm

She still looks WAAAY too skinny. I thought she was “working on her nutrition?”

I know the tabloid crap about her being 98 pounds or some ridiculous figure like that is just that…crap, but she does still look extremely thin. I’d put her at 100-105, and on a woman that is 5’8″, that is WAY WAY too thin. She should be a minimum 115. Look at how big those pants in the picture of her and Shiloh are on her and they’re probably a size 2 or 4, TOPS.

Are you sure Kathy Griffin is a fan of AJ? I mean in one of her shows, which you can watch on YouTube, she says AJ is a crazy woman.
