Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Life & Style Weekly has the exclusive pictures from Brad Pitt‘s birthday surprise for son Maddox.

It all started out on Friday when Angelina Jolie brought Maddox with her to work at LA Studios. This was a distraction so that Brad Pitt could ready the house for Mad‘s 6th birthday bash. Here’s what the L&S insiders had to say:

On the parents doing the party planning: “Brad and Angelina were heavily involved in the preparations. They mapped out and set up everything themselves.”

On Braddox’s relationship: “Brad and Maddox have a unique father-son bond. Brad came into Maddox’s life at precisely the right time. He needed a strong male influence as a role model. And after all those years of wanting a child, Brad was bouncing off the walls with excitement.”

On the fun waterslide: “It was huge! Brad made sure the plastic was good and wet before anyone went down. He even inflated some rafts.”

On Brad readying the troops for Capture the Flag: “Brad really got into it,” says the insider. “He was decked out in military fatigues and a helmet. Even Angie and Zahara painted their faces!”

On the gifts Brad and Angie bought Maddox (dirt bike, a leather jacket and a helmet): “Mad wants to be a biker, just like his dad. He’s always going into Brad’s closet and strutting around in Brad’s hats!”

Brad is such a wonderful family man. Why would anyone refuse to have a baby with Brad? I guess anybody who will deny him a kid is not using her brains … err, I guess she has no brains to begin with.

Angelina Jolie….. Gemini
Brad Pitt…… Sagittarius

Both of you are curious individuals, rather restless and on-the-go. You can expect your lives together to be very active, with lots of changes, probably frequent moves, adjustments, surprises, and new challenges. These changes will bring lots of ups and downs, but overall both of you will be greatly enriched by these diverse activities and interests.

Sagittarius is more philosophical and had grander plans than Gemini, who takes each step as it comes and finds more pleasure in the little things in life. Sagittarius enjoys being on a crusade or mission for some philosophical reason or for personal gain, while Gemini finds Sagittarius’s dreams and schemes entertaining and interesting. You often see things from a different perspective, but usually you can benefit from each other’s viewpoint and you are adaptable and flexible enough to listen to each other and benefit from each other.

Personal freedom is important to both of you and you are likely to find it in this relationship. Even if you are always together you do not cling to, or smother, each other. On the whole you are very compatible.

You have a great rapport, and your emotional needs coincide very well. Personal freedom and mobility mean a lot to both of you, and neither of you wants to possess or be possessed totally. You share an unending curiosity and mental restlessness, a love of books and movies and ideas, an urge to travel, to meet different kinds of people, and to discover new things.

You are both playful and humorous, though Sagittarius is more philosophical, idealistic, and optimistic than Gemini. Gemini’s humour can be rather black at times. Both of you are also rather intellectual and need an intelligent, communicative partner. You are very companionable together and are likely to enjoy a very satisfying friendship in addition to whatever romantic attachment you have.

Wit, intelligence, and an active mind are attributes the two of you share, and in your relationship there will be a focus on communicating, bantering, a lot f verbal give and take.
Intellectual interests and/or hobbies are apt to play a significant role in your relationship.

You will experience the heights and depths, love and hate, attraction and repulsion, agony and ecstasy in this relationship.
A powerful, compelling fascination and irresistible sexual attraction draws the two of you together like magnets. You love each other with a depth of feeling that is surprising even to yourselves. The powerful charismatic power that you have over each other can be used to manipulate one another, and dominance, control, or jealousy easily becomes hot issues between you. Whether this is a brief passionate encounter or a lifelong attachment, you will change one another profoundly.

Although sexual magnetism between you is very intense, you both may be somewhat uncomfortable by the overwhelming feelings or obsessive quality that you engender in one another. Even if you are repulsed or disinclined to become close to one another, there seems to be an irresistible attraction bringing you together. Power struggles, emotional or sexual manipulation, and disruptive jealousy may be problems you encounter in this relationship. Whatever develops, this relationship will touch your depths and change you profoundly.

You both have the talent for being farsighted about new directions and experimentation with love making, oral sex may appeal to you, or you may with to make love impulsively at the office, in the car, or anywhere that is convenient. Both of you wish to lead the relationship, which can at times be confusing.

The romantic love and sexual attraction for each other is very compelling and deep. You wield a powerful, charismatic influence on each other and your love affair is a powerful one. This could be one of the most fulfilling, all-consuming relationships of your life!

Enormous benefits, expansion, success, and growth come to both of you through the vehicle of your relationship. You’ll be blessed with unusual good fortune and fulfilment, both materially and in less tangible ways. Most of all, you will feel that you have plenty when you are together. Instead of seeing limitations, you’ll be able to see possibilities for an expanded life, opportunities that you may have missed before. Religion, philosophy, or higher education may become a focus in your relationship, even if neither of you is especially inclined that way.

You increase one another’s optimism and broaden one another’s viewpoints, opening up much more of the world to one another. Long distance travel or making connections to other parts of the world can be a part of this.

Essentially, your relationship is about increasing growth, freedom, and expansion in your lives. Much success and fulfilment are generated when you are together.

PLEASE FEED MY NEEDS OF ATTENTION.

Angelina Jolie spent her first day of filming “Wanted” yesterday afternoon in Chi-Town’s Chinatown.

Jolie arrived to the set early in the morning and stayed till mid-afternoon filming a driving scene in a black Audi SUV.

Jolie retreated to her trailers midday for lunch where her children were waiting to see their mom. No word on where Brad Pitt was at this time.

Jolie returned back to her downtown hotel mid-afternoon, but not before saying goodbye to the crew. BTW: The crew loves Angie! They all insist she couldn’t be nicer. Jolie’s stunt-double continued to film the car scenes till early evening.

Around 7 p.m., a driver pulled one of Brangelina’s SUVs, with a bodyguard in shotgun, into the hotel’s private garage where security escorted Pitt into the vehicle and drove straight to a private jet at Midway airport.

The Boots Girls did not see Pitt walk onto the jet, but sources told us Pitt left town for the evening.

His destination is unknown for now.

Jolie is scheduled to continue filming all day today.

seriously what kind of a loser wakes up, makes up storiesa about people they know nothing about and puts it out there? You need to check yourself because you have severe mental problems.

BRAD IS NOT IN CHICAGO ANYMORE @ 08/09/2007 at 10:22 am

I don’t see why everyone keeps praising this couple. Angie has made it obvious that she cannot stick with just one person. I truly believe that she went after him because she wanted a father for her kids. Everyone who praises them fails to mention that she’s nothing but a homewrecker and he’s a cheating SOB. I have lost ALL respect for these two… how do they expect to keep this wonderful sanctity of family when she’s been divorced twice already and Brad cheated on Jennifer?? Neither one of them know what it really means to be a family! If they had any clue in their heads, they both would have waited to see each other until his divorce was finalized.

I also just love how Angie is just SOOOOO defensive of the adopted kids that she treats Shiloh like an outcast. She’s rarely in public, and when she is, she always looks like she’s been crying. Even in the “privacy” of their own home, Shiloh is in only ONE of those pictures.. not good enough to be with the rest of the family. Angie toted Maddox and Zahara around when they were just babies, why doesn’t she do the same for Shiloh??

Don’t respond to haterz who want attention.

BRAD WAS ONLY IN CHICAGO FOR T @ 08/09/2007 at 10:26 am

Brad is in the space shuttle.

I understand that some of you might be new to Brad and Angelina threads on JJ, but dam* some of you are so dense. The trolls come in every time with their stupid rumors just to disrupt the conversation flow and just like clock work some of you fall for their cr*p.

The fans on these threads are known for their discerning minds but some of you can’t even see when these trolls are being facetious. If and when Brad and Angelina break up, it will be announced just like it was announced when Brad X broke up or when Angelina and BBT broke.

Ignore the trolls and they slither away like the snakes they are but some of you just cannot help your selves.

Chicago lurker @ 08/09/2007 at 10:28 am

The kids went to visit angelina on set. They were on her trailer, after she was done she went back to the hotel with her kids.

Brad was never on the set, he left the hotel before angelina arrived. He’s out of Chicago.

I’m sure this will make news tomorrow because a lot of people are following their moves.

is there a film festival this month in canada?

is there a film festival this month in canada?

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

Nope all festivals are between the last week of this month and the first week of september. He left Chicago without spending any minute of the whole he was here with angelina because he can’t stand her.

Ummm if Brad had some business to attend to somewhere other than chicago, they broke up? What kind of fukced up logic is that.

I am a HUGE fan of the Pitts but I have to admit most of their fans are complete IDIOTS. You all will spend at least the next 3 pages asking for links from INSIDERS whose only purpose is to come here and stir up bullshit. You’ll then spend the next 4 pages coming up with the most stupid justifications as to why Brad may have left Chicago, and then come up with a list of all the other celebrity couples who don’t spend every waking minute together. Don’t you get it by coming up with your lists and reasons you actually play into the hands of the haters? YOU ALL MUST ENJOY BEING PLAYED. THERE IS NO OTHER REASON FOR WHY YOU CHOOSE TO RESPOND DAY AFTER DAY TO THE SAME BULLSHIT. SO I SAY HATERS MAKE THESE MONKEYS DANCE. WE REAL FANS WILL **** BACK AND WATCH THE SHOW.

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”.

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 indepen

Poor loonies @ 08/09/2007 at 10:33 am

Brad and Angelina are done. He went to chicago and let know splash the time the plane will arrive so they could get the pics.

Angelina was on set since early morning until 6pm. The kids went to the set around 12pm. Brad was never there, he stayed in the hotel until 6:30pm before angelina arrived at the hotel, and left to the airport.

They are playing “pretending” just like he did with Aniston. Brad is hella good at this game.

piper, with a low @ 08/09/2007 at 10:34 am

Wow,

The haters are hitting hard today; too bad they told lies about things that are verifiable.

Those poor bloggers who are willing to take any info that’s available; your ‘insiders’ don’t give a d@mn about your credibility or your livelihood. Next time, be more careful.

Brad is back in L.A he’s looking to buy a new house. Maybe the break up rumors are true?

It seems that there has been a lot of speculation about this Chicago trip; because even before Brad and Angelina arrive to Chicago; they were a lot of FALSE rumors about them; especially Angelina!! So i’m NOT surprise that this rumors continue, but what amazes me is that how many people want this family to split!! Yes, this is SICK; especially because they are 4 innocent little children involve!!

And even if Brad left; this means NOTHING!! because remember Brad ALSO has work commitments; especially now that he is almost start to film the movie “Burn After Reading” with George Clooney!! So maybe Brad left to New York city; where the movie is going to be film!! So nobody really knows anything about this couple; so they invent all sort of things about them!!

Also, Katie Holmes return to L.A. without Tom Cruise and Suri… So WHY is nobody saying that they SPLIT?????
