Angelina Jolie @ Good Morning America

Angelina Jolie and costar Anthony Hopkins discuss their groundbreaking new movie Beowulf on Monday’s Good Morning America.

Watch a 5-minute clip of Angie and Anthony‘s interview with GMA here. Notable quote from Angie:

Your family’s so rich with different cultures, do you try to embrace them on a holiday like Thanksgiving? We do. We celebrate Moon Festival for my boys [Maddox and Pax], who are from Asia and Kwanzaa [for daughter Zahara] and things like that. We certainly try to celebrate as many of those as we can and bring in all cultures.

    Neil Gaiman on Angelina Jolie..

    “I like Angelina. She’s nice, very professional, and has a slightly goofy sense of humour. Last time I met her was November 2005, when she was doing the acting bit of Beowulf. Even then, it had already been reported in the papers that she had closed down production on Beowulf by walking off the set after a fight with Ray Winstone — two weeks before her first day on set. I realised that where she was concerned the press were happy to simply make up stuff that sounded credible. It didn’t need have to have any basis at all in reality.”

    The trash magazines and their lies…what a surprise. Even those in the press know that all those stories printed about Angelina are a bunch of lies.

    Love the interview !
    Angie as always, eloquent and well informed.
    I first came across with Angelina in “Alexander” interview, I was so impressed by her eloquency and wit. although, Olympia role was only a samll part, but she was so well informed not only her character but the entire Greek mythology. even the interviewer was quite surprise by Angie. she was one actress who really do her research and homework .

  • Mzslil

    Thanks….Hey!!!!

    I’m glsd the movie’s tracking for a big opening at the box office.

  • Katie N

    Yes, AJ is very eloquent and consciously try to infuse substance into what she says. Different from most other actresses who giggle and flutter eye lashes all the way. Great to hear that she is celebrating these children’s cultural heritage.

    Hopen the kiddies are doing well.

  • bibi

    Love Angie.

  • one

    Seems good and interesting.

  • the real tita

    I was too late in turning on my TV so I am glad that Jared has the clip. This is the second time hat she and Sir Anthony have appeared on films. It’s great to see them both doing the interview even though Angie only has a few minutes in the movie. I wonder why they don’t use much of the other actresses for their promos when they have much longer and most number of scenes? Could it be cause Angie got the big bucks for her short part?

    Thanks, JJ. Knew you’d come thru for us. Now, if only there were pics of the premiere tonight, is it? Hope Brad is there with her at the RC.

    Angelina is so over all those Jennifer Aniston comparisons.
    The pair had avoided being pitted against each other for some time — that is, until November’s W magazine hit stands. Editors had released nine versions of the issue — including one of Jolie, 32, as the cover girl and another of Aniston, 38.
    “Why would I comment on that?” Jolie snapped when asked about it at a Beverly Hills press conference for her upcoming flick Beowulf Saturday. “That matters because….”
    (Jolie had previously told Vogue that she is open to meeting Aniston. “That would be her decision, and I would welcome it.”)
    Jolie was less guarded when it came to revealing her Thanksgiving plans with beau Brad Pitt and their

    Oh, please, please, people!
    You can’t hate my Brad!
    How can you say his merger was effed up

    He and Man were so happy, esp WHEN THEY
    WERE SEPARATED FOR 8 MONTHS! Remember that!
    So nice man! Never lies!

    SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 04, 2007
    . . . .
    It’s weird. They call these things junkets. It’s a word that means either “a sweet dessert”, “a party” or “a trip made for pleasure at someone else’s expense”. And the pleasure trip aspect is certainly there for the journalists, who get flown to somewhere nice by the film company, put up in hotels, see the film and then spend a day or a few hours talking to the people who made it. When I was a journalist, getting on a junket was always considered a good thing – a small amount of work for a fair amount of pleasure and adventure.

    Having done a few of them now on the other side of the press conference table I think it’s worth mentioning that they aren’t really junkets for the people organising them or for the people being interviewed. They are work.

    We assembled yesterday morning early in a hotel back room. A lady did hair and make up for the cameras (which means, in my case, a bit of powder, and then her looking at my hair and asking “Is it meant to be like that?” and me saying, um, yes, sorry). Then into a back room to be led onto the stage for a press conference. Ray Winstone and Crispin Glover had just seen the film and loved it (Crispin: “And mostly I don’t like films I’m in,”), John Malkovitch, Anthony Hopkins and Angelina Jolie haven’t yet seen it. Bob Zemeckis was there but decided some years ago not to do things like interviews and junkets and press conferences (very wise, and I rather wish I could do likewise).

    I like Angelina. She’s nice, very professional, and has a slightly goofy sense of humour. Last time I met her was November 2005, when she was doing the acting bit of Beowulf. Even then, it had already been reported in the papers that she had closed down production on Beowulf by walking off the set after a fight with Ray Winstone – two weeks before her first day on set. I realised that where she was concerned the press were happy to simply make up stuff that sounded credible. It didn’t need have to have any basis at all in reality.

    It was obvious during the press conference that a large contingent of the press just wanted to talk to her and talk about her private life, something she declined to do and handled with grace and aplomb. Overall, the press conference went well (I think my favourite bit was the way Ray Winstone, answering questions, always refers to me and Roger Avary as “The Boys”, as if we’re a couple of writing hardcases who will come over to your house and beat you up with our typewriters.)

    And then on to interviews. Round tables: a dozen journalists in each room, and Roger and I go in, talk for half an hour and are then moved to the next room, where another dozen journalists are waiting to ask the same questions, while Anthony Hopkins, always one room behind, is moved into the room we were in.

    And then it was off to hotel rooms for individual interviews, and telephone interviews with journalists in Kansas and suchlike places. And then, brain dead, we were done.

    The reaction to the film from the journalists and interviewers, who had seen it the previous night, seemed overwhelmingly positive, which was a relief.

    It’s nice that people have started to see the film, and are now actually talking about the thing they’ve seen. (I got a bit tired of reading online “reviews” of the film, which were always mash-ups of what people thought they’d seen in the trailers with what they imagined we were doing to the story, along with complaints about visuals they hadn’t properly seen yet, which then normally concluded with the loud and proud announcement that as they knew they wouldn’t like it, they wouldn’t be seeing it, and it certainly wouldn’t be Beowulf. Several of them were written by people who should, I thought, know better. I’ve never minded getting bad reviews, but in the past they’ve always come from people who had at least read or seen the thing they were complaining about.)

    Anyway, now we’ve started screening it, real reactions are coming in.

    Here’s a letter Jeff Wells that he put up at his blog in advance of his review appearing, which he’s posted I think partly because he was embarrassed by having said nasty things about Beowulf last week before seeing it http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/archives/2007/11/beowulf_2.php

    I really love what he said about Angie. I love the fact that there are people out there willing to write the truth about Angie and how the media is full of lies where she is concerned instead of writing lies just to get hits on their sites. :)

  • koko

    Angelina is a transformation! She looks like she’s trying too hard to be eloquent and her speech sounds rehearsed. I wasn’t expecting her to observe Kwanzaa , but good for her and her daughter. She wants to sounds soo perfect.
    And she didn’t answer the question ” who cooks (for big occasion?” She completely turned the answer around, “we all try to put in a little something” Com”on, in her family, Brad is the only grown-up, are they asking the kids how to cook??? That’s ridiculous! She could have just said there’s a cook on her payroll, coz we all know it’s true, ANgie!

    Why the hell did those reporters ask that stupid question? I love Angie’s answer “Why would I comment on that?” Exactly.

  • stefanie

    Hahahahahahaha, Kwanzaa???
    Okay Angie, a little lesson for you.

    Kwanzaa is an AFRICAN-AMERICAN holiday established in 1966. Yes, it does use African traditions of family and unity, but it really as nothing to do with Ethopia or Africa, which is where her “daughter” is from. I don’t know any Africans who celebrate Kwanzaa and very few African-Americans (and I’m African-American).

    I wonder how much longer Brad is going for this “global family” concept.
