    Brad and Mad in School Daze
    Posted Sep 21st 2007 1:03PM by TMZ Staff
    Filed under: Kids, Brad and Angelina

    Maddox Jolie-Pitt’s daily trips to and from school have officially become a police matter.

    When Daddy Brad arrived yesterday afternoon to pick Maddox up, NYPD had set up barriers to keep the snapperazzi and onlookers a few yards away from the front door of the Lycee Francais. When it came time to leave, the crush of peepers was so insane, Brad decided to take Maddox out a back door.

    Earlier in the day, Brad brought along Pax and Zahara to take big bro to school. No word on whether the Lycee will be bringing in the Marines when Brad’s three other kids enroll.

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

    Hey guys, do we have pics of this? So it was Brad who brought Mad to school and not some blonde lady as earlier reproted. And where are the pics of B, Z and P, bringing Mad to School?

    I think B&A must have left NYC after Brad picked up Mad.

  • Lady G

    Thanks Jared for the new thread.

    I love it that everyone was wondering where Angie and Brad were and they off doing their thing. I hope that Condee Rice take to heart the information that Angie is sharing with her on the Refugees in Iraq and Syria. It’s also nice that she is touching bases with Colin Powell, they work well together.

    Hopefully Angie and Brad will get in some grow up time while there.

    I think I am on the first page. Does this mean that they are not in California? I do love their energy and passion for goodwill work and career. I didn’t know he has a pal at the Post. So they can reminisce about old times in college. Good thing Angie was not there so 50% of the employees will not meet their deadlines. Thanks JJ.

  • nicole richee fan

    I wish I worked in that office on that day..Such a hottttt man brad is. Angelina so beautiful and smart.

  • briseis

    Boy, Jared, you ARE on some kind of roll … how many Brad/Angie threads in a week? All positive news about the couple … no wonder the fanistons are losing their sheit and flinging anything and everything at them, hoping something negative would stick.

    Aahhh, these days it is good to be a fan of the JPs!!!! The sweet smell of success!

    ANGELINA JOLIE VISITS IRAQ AND IRAQI REFUGEES

    UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador witnesses humanitarian crisis

    DAMASCUS, Tuesday 28 August (UNHCR) -

    UUNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has visited Iraq and Syria to see first-hand the plight of hundreds of thousands of families uprooted by the ongoing conflict in Iraq.

    The UN refugee agency estimates more than 4. 2 million Iraqis have left their homes – 2 million to neighbouring states and another 2.2 million displaced inside Iraq.

    Yesterday in Damascus, Jolie visited a UNHCR registration centre and spent hours talking to Iraqi refugees in their homes. Today, she crossed into Iraq to visit 1,200 refugees trapped in a makeshift camp at the border, unable to flee Iraq, and later watched scores of Iraqis crossing into Syria at a border checkpoint.

    As a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie said she would leave politics to others while focusing on the region’s huge humanitarian needs.

    “I have come to Syria and Iraq to help draw attention to this humanitarian crisis and to urge governments to increase their support for UNHCR and its partners,” Jolie said. “My sole purpose in both countries is to highlight the plight of those uprooted by the war in Iraq.”

    After talking with some of the stranded refugees at Iraq’s Al Waleed camp on Tuesday, Jolie said: “it is absolutely essential that the ongoing debate about Iraq’s future includes plans for addressing the enormous humanitarian consequences these people face.”

    While in Iraq, she separated from UNHCR to visit privately with U.S. troops and other Multi-National Forces based in the area.

    Jolie arrived in Syria on Monday. In Damascus, she met some of the thousands of Iraqi refugees registering with UNHCR, nearly one-quarter of whom are victims of violence and torture. Tens of thousands are without jobs, and many young people are in danger of losing out on an education and a future. She recognized Syria for its open borders and generosity to Iraqis.

    In late July, UNHCR and UNICEF launched a joint $129 million education appeal aimed at getting 155,000 young Iraqi refugees throughout the Middle East back into school. The United States announced Tuesday that it will contribute $30 million to the appeal.

    In however long they have been together, I don’t think these two have ever been a part for more than 2 weeks or something like that. They are totally in sync with each other and its nice how they plan their schedule that allows for them to travel together and get things done.

    The Post’s Pitt Stop

    Stop the presses! Brad Pitt paid a sort-of-but-not-really surprise visit to The Post’s newsroom yesterday, and not since Denzel Washington’s newsroom tour in 1993 did so many heads turn and so much workplace productivity swirl down the drain.

    Pitt, 43, is in town researching his upcoming role as an investigative reporter in “State of Play,” a Washington-based drama about hard-nosed journos trying to solve the murder of a young political staffer, according to production supervisor Kwame Parker.

    Brad Pitt got some reporting tips — and a lot of stares — during a visit to The Post’s newsroom. (By Kevin Clark — The Washington Post)

    In his signature gray tweed English racing hat, blue slacks — not jeans! — a tan blazer and a white button-down shirt sans tie, Pitt graciously offered a few waves and “heys” to in-house admirers while he spent four hours making the rounds with “State of Play” director Kevin Macdonald.

    The visitors lunched across the street at Palette with Post Vice President at Large Ben Bradlee, Executive Editor Len Downie and political reporter Dan Balz. Then they took a tour of the newsroom and had meetings with Managing Editor Phil Bennett, Chairman Don Graham and Publisher Bo Jones. Finally, Pitt headed back downstairs for a chat with military affairs and Pentagon reporter Josh White and a catch-up session with investigative reporter James Grimaldi– also known around the office as Pitt’s Sigma Chi frat brother at the University of Missouri back in 1984.

    “It was really a conversation about craft,” said Metropolitan Editor R.B. Brenner, who is consulting for the filmmakers and spent part of the afternoon talking shop with Pitt and Macdonald. For his part, White reports that Pitt was polite, engaged in the subject and asked good questions.

    The rest of The Post’s scribes tried — but not too hard — to act nonchalant while gazing dreamily in the actor’s direction. “It was like angels singing,” one female employee was overheard saying after apparently making brief eye contact.

    Pitt’s partner, actress Angelina Jolie, was nowhere to be found (which was probably just as well, because we have these things called “deadlines” here). Ever the do-gooder, Jolie met with Colin Powell at his Alexandria office, and then with his successor as secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice. Jolie’s rep says she reported on her recent trip to Iraq and Syria, and discussed Iraq’s 4 million refugees

    Missouri Fan, never stop making videos. I love your latest one. Without you I wouldn’t have Brad and his hats. Your videos are so good. Sorry, but I can’t post on Youtube. They reject every name I post. Something is screwy with them. Peace

    Loved it, very romantic.

    28 Purple Gem

    Longest separation I think since they got together going on three years ago was 5-6 days (due to different time zones) when Angelina went to Vietnam to adopt Pax and Brad had to work in LA. She flew right back to LA and Brad and they have not been separated but once since then when he went to Montreal from Prague for 2 days to finish filming BB and she went to Iraq and Syria for 2 days from NYC. They are determined to be together. Even in the beginning of their relationship they were never apart more than 2-3 days at a time. When she was filming in NYC and he was filming in Canada in 2005, they were always flying back and forth to be together.

  • ALISTER

    I appreciate the new thread JJ. Wishing Brad + Angie only the best.

  • Colin Powell says

    “She’s absolutely serious, absolutely informed,” says former secretary of State Colin Powell. “Her work with refugees is not something to decorate herself. She studies the issues.” Powell has spoken with Jolie several times over the years, and they’ve been honored together at benefits for refugee causes. There is, he says, no sanctimony about her. “For her, it’s not about saving the world, it’s about saving kids,” he says. “She doesn’t need this. This needed her.”

  • the real tita

    That female employee was so funny…it was like angels singing. I think I’d hear it too if Brad ever came within the vicinity. I’d have a permanent smile etched on my face and won’t hear anybody speaking to me.
    Same with Angie, though. I’d probably be giggling too hard that I won’t be able to stop. Maybe I’ll just stare with my mouth open.

  • Missouri Fan

    I like their schedule..

    Thanks Jared!

    God bless those four children: Maddox, Pham Quang Sang, Zahara, and Shiloh. They are being raised in a circus, with flashbulbs 24/7. Their needs are the LAST consideration of these two narcissists. Good parents? On what planet?

  • TiaBia

    How cool. They were in my city. My cousin actually works for the Post…mmm, wonder if she saw Pitt.

  • curious

    Who can believe they hate each other?according to gossip huh?who?

    how can some one hate other person but go everywhere with him/her,doing schedual together,plan together,raising kids together,go to premiere togeher,go with Mad to school together,help other people together,stay with each other days and nights,leave your friends and try to spend as much time with your family as possible,lit up when you are talking about your man/woman and the family that you create together and always talk about how happy you are with your life.

    so I can`t understand why some people still are buying gossip and those Tab that according to them they are already split and they are not living with each other.how many more lies they should tell until people stop buying them.
