    bringing Jolie new interview from the other thread

    ONLY IN HOLLYWOOD
    Angelina Jolie opens up

    By Ruben V. Nepales
    Inquirer
    Last updated 00:19am (Mla time) 11/10/2007

    LOS ANGELES, California—“Isn’t that always the rumor?,” quips Angelina on reports that she’s pregnant. “I am not at the moment,” the actress declared. “But, I’m beginning to find it funny how often that’s written about in the press.”

    Beautiful as usual in a black blouse and gray slacks, the much-admired humanitarian added, “You should have seen me at 6 o’clock this morning, with everybody in bed and me wondering how I was going to get up to get here!”

    Topics

    In a recent press con, Angelina talked about a wide array of topics—including her desire to do fewer movies so she can have more time to be with her family that includes Brad Pitt; Maddox, 6; Pax Thien, 3; Zahara Marley, 2, and Shiloh Nouvel, 1.

    Life has been so hectic for Angelina that for her, to have “better life experiences” means “being home a little more often.”

    Jolie stars as a mother and monster in “Beowulf,” director Robert Zemeckis’ movie version of the oldest surviving poem in the English language. Using the groundbreaking performance-capture technology he introduced in “Polar Express,” Zemeckis has crafted a visually stunning film that also stars Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Crispin Glover, Robin Wright Penn, Brendan Gleeson and Alison Lohman. Excerpts from our interview:

    What is involved in performance-capture technology?
    You spend a few days getting mapped so the computers will know your face. You do 60 different expressions. They also map your body. Then, when you shoot, you get to be in a jumpsuit. There are balls on your head. You look goofy and so does everybody so, it makes us feel very close. It’s not sexy at all (laughter)!
    It was a lot of fun! I haven’t seen the full film, but when I saw my scenes, I was very surprised. I called home to say that I wasn’t sure my 6-year-old can see the movie, because it was more than I expected!

    Realistic

    It was quite realistic. I thought it might be fun for the eldest of my sons to see—but it’s not! It’s too mature—it’s for older audiences because it’s more violent and sexual.

    You play a seductress. Have you been seduced in real life?
    I’m sure I’ve been seduced in my life! Probably I shouldn’t start talking about it (laughter).

    “Beowulf” was written centuries ago. Yet, it’s still valuable today. What do you make of the story?

    The poem has a lot of layers. I always saw it as a tale about people who would sacrifice or sell their souls to the devil to get fame or power—and what a horrible trap that is!

    I was raised to believe in hard work. At the end of the day, you sleep well because of what you’ve accomplished. So, the idea of getting something for nothing has never appealed to me.

    How excited were you to work with Zemeckis and to play this role?
    Bob Zemeckis has an amazing reputation as an innovative filmmaker. I knew this character was the mother and the monster and that’s always a great role (laughing)!

    Activist

    You’re a mother, a movie star, and a political activist. How do you manage to do these things so well?

    It involves proper scheduling. Obviously, my priorities are my children. They are growing up. I’ll be doing even less work, because that’s what I prefer to do.

    As for political activism, I’ve been educating myself on things that are happening around the world. It’s a privilege to be able to do it. I feel motivated to say or do something because I’m in a position to do so.

    In what order of importance do you rank your roles as mom, humanitarian and actress?
    I’m a mom first. I don’t know if I’m as much an ambassador as I’m a citizen of the world. I just want to learn about the world and its cultures. Lastly, I’m an actress.

    Close calls

    You’re also a brave woman who goes to some dangerous places. Have you had close calls?
    Yes, I’ve had close calls. I’ve been in countries where people tried to take my passport—where I’ve had to hide in a room, because there were people outside who were dangerous.

    Last time we talked, you said you were looking forward to aging.
    Age is beautiful. My mother was beautiful. She was 58 when she passed away. I have a family that loves me as I am. I see little bits of me in my daughter—so that’s beauty to me. Honesty is also beauty.

    Tell us about your other upcoming movie, “Wanted.”
    “Wanted” is a fun, action movie. When my mom passed away, I wanted to do something physical to get me out of my head. I wanted to do that because I was in a place where I wasn’t capable of getting up in the morning. So I needed something that would force me to be active!

    Are you involved with Brad’s production company?
    We shouldn’t mix business and pleasure (laughing). We came together for “A Mighty Heart.” He produced it. We’re now working together on a project. We have our separate companies, but we run everything by each other.

    In Toronto, Brad told us that you are his love, his partner and the mother of his children. How would you describe him?
    Can I steal his (laughing)? I’d say he’s my love, my dearest friend and—the father of my children.

    Language

    He told us that you spoke good French. What language is spoken in your house?
    We’re all trying to master French in the house. It has been quite funny. Our 6-year-old kid is doing his best. He goes to a French school, and he corrects me all the time! Somebody in the house speaks Vietnamese. Our 2-year-old is now starting to speak Vietnamese. We have language craziness in our house! I’d like our children to speak the language of their land.

    Do you believe in the American school system?
    I don’t want to be misinterpreted as being against American schools. My kids come from different backgrounds, and I want to make sure that they’re getting a broad view of history and of the world.

    This might be an unusual thing to say, but my son is going to learn about the Vietnam War at some point. He will learn about whether or not we were in Cambodia and what America’s involvement was.

    Have you adjusted to the constant presence of the paparazzi in your life?
    Certainly, with the children, it’s a difficult thing. It limits what we can do. We try to make their lives full whenever possible. We look for places with freedom.

    Pictures

    When it comes to the cameras, we make sure the children aren’t scared of them, so we say, “They’re just silly people who take pictures—aren’t they crazy?” How could you possibly explain something that there’s no good explanation for?

    You’ve done a documentary about different places in the world. How difficult is it to observe people when everybody’s observing you?
    When I was younger, my favorite thing was to be on the subway—to just be myself and watch people. I miss that. The documentary I did was for high school kids. We sent people with cameras to different parts of the world. I went to Niger where I was with the Tuaregs. They didn’t know who I was. They don’t believe in gossip! I enjoyed my privacy there.

    If you were reborn, would you like to be Angelina Jolie with Brad Pitt again, or a powerful, sexy woman?
    Can’t I be both (laughing)? Honestly, I’d like to be a pilot and a painter.

    ‘Beowulf’ Aroused Jolie’s Maternal Feelings

    Despite Playing Evil Character, Actress Said She Understood Character’s Motivation

    During her lengthy career Angelina Jolie has played a thief, a detective, an adventurer and even what she calls a “sexy lizard” in her latest film “Beowulf.”

    Though Jolie is followed more now for her high-profile personal life and humanitarian work, it was at the movie theater that Americans first fell in love with the pouty actress.

    The oldest known story in the English language comes to the silver screen this month as the epic poem “Beowulf” is brought to life. Using cutting-edge computer animated film, and some of the biggest Hollywood stars, the movie is poised for a groundbreaking run.

    The movie, which uses digitally animated backgrounds that are blended with traditional live-action film, follows Beowulf, who comes to save King Hrothgar, played by Anthony Hopkins, because his kingdom has fallen prey to a demon named Grendel.
    Actress Angelina Jolie, who plays Grendel’s mother, said even though her character was evil, she was able to associate with her maternal side.

    “I liked that it was a mother, who would do anything and destroy anything, if somebody hurt her son. So it was, it was the maternal side of me,” Jolie said. “I love that that’s her motivation.”
    Jolie described her character as a “sexy lizard” and said it was challenging trying to make a demon alluring.

    “I just focused on her being evil,” she said. “But, on the day [of filming], it didn’t feel very sexy at all. I was in the traditional bubble head and the jump suit. And I felt absolutely goofy, especially trying to feel seductive in my jumpsuit with my dot face.”
    Jolie said her family helps her balance her acting and her advocacy work.

    “I feel like I’m very lucky in my life,” Jolie said. “I’ve got a great supportive family. And I think when you have that and, and you’re passionate about what you do, then you’re in that great — very fortunate position to be able to balance that.”
    And for Jolie’s co-star, Hopkins, doing the semi-animated film offered him more liberties.

    “You have a certain degree of freedom,” he said, “because you don’t have any set or props or scenery, or anything like that in a normal film.”

    “But you’re surrounded by these grids of cameras, hundreds of cameras,” Hopkins added.

    The actors said there are important themes in “Beowulf.”
    “In the history of this country, I mean, how power is the driving force that makes somebody grab for the presidency and they get it, and that same power undoes them,” Hopkins said, “there’s a kind of spiritual allegory in that.”

    “I think it’s got that old theme of, of selling your soul for something you think is important, like, like power or fame and realizing that, that is just a trap,” Jolie added. “That’s, that’s the great message.”

    Turkey Time
    The movie, which opens Nov. 16, arrives just in time for Thanksgiving and the actors said they already have their holidays planned.
    While Hopkins said he plans to make the gravy, Jolie said she is not so much of cook.

    “We’ll see what happens this year,” she said. “We all chip in. But I don’t think anybody in my family wants me to handle Thanksgiving dinner.”

    Jolie added that her diverse family adds elements from her adopted children’s cultures into the family’s celebration.

    “We celebrate Moon Festival for my boys, who are from Asia,” she said. “We certainly try to celebrate as many of those as we can and bring in all culture.”

  • a fan

    LOS ANGELES — The millions upon millions of men (and many women) who wouldn’t mind seeing Angelina Jolie’s body in its barest form are in for a bonus — they can now get even closer to the “Beowulf” beauty thanks to the fact that her exposed flesh is all three-dimensional.

    “I got a little shy — I really wasn’t expecting it to be as … I didn’t expect ourselves to ‘come out’ as much,” Jolie said, referring to her nu de scenes in the new flick “Beowulf.”

    “I didn’t expect it to feel as real and so, especially because of the type of character I play, it was funny at first and then there were certain moments where I felt actually shy and called home and just explained the kind of fun movie I had done that was digital animation was, in fact, a little different than I think they were expecting. So I was really surprised that I felt that exposed,” she added.

    And it seems the screen siren is so sexy even as an animated mother that she was able to leave co-star John Malkovich without words.

    “It’s PG-13, so at least I’m told there are things and adult themes on the Internet that may push the envelope quite a bit further than a PG-13, but we’ll see; I haven’t seen it yet,” he told FOX at Monday’s star-studded premiere. “Of course, I’m excited to see Angelina on-screen … she’s …she’s talented.”

    However, co-star Ray Winstone wasn’t quite so excited to see the humanitarian hottie flashing her flesh in a cartoon creation.

    “I don’t think there’s anything better than the real thing, to be quite honest with you,” Winstone said. “But she [Jolie] is a beautiful girl, [a] great actress, you know?”

    Of course, we know. And beau, Brad Pitt, doesn’t appear to be bothered by the buzz her bare body is causing. Pop Tarts popped the comely couple exiting the premiere hand-in-hand, even smiling at a stunned fan who nearly smacked right into them.

    ‘Beowulf’ battles and Angelina Jolie approval

    From CNN Entertainment Producer Douglas Hyde in Los Angeles:
    Monday night’s red-carpet premiere of “Beowulf” turned out to be interesting for a number of reasons.

    “Beowulf,” as you might have read, is an animated version of the classic tale that some of us were forced to read in school. And if you think the story was full of histrionics, you should have seen the premiere in L.A.’s Westwood neighborhood.

    First off, the “Beowulf” people went all out. They closed off an entire block. They built a big, rocky, spooky papier-mache edifice that said “Beowulf” and had dry-ice fog swirling around it. It was exactly as the studio desired: very dramatic.

    Meanwhile, there was also some drama going on in the penned-in area where the media has set up, waiting for the stars to come by.
    At red-carpet events, there’s a pecking order to media locations — first spot goes to “Entertainment Tonight,” then “Access Hollywood,” and on down the line — and one of the down-the-line names wasn’t happy with their spot. They left in protest. Then another media firm got into an argument with a TV network, siccing security on an employee. The employee wasn’t happy: “What goes around, comes around. I won’t forget this!” he said.

    After that, the stars were almost an anticlimax. Almost.
    Ray Winstone arrived first. In reality, Winstone is 50 and, if in decent shape (he’s a former boxer), he’s not Mr. Olympia. But in the movie, he’s a 20-something animated hero with six-pack abs. He told CNN that his wife said that’s what he looked like 30 years ago, but he thinks she’s just being kind.

    And you might be interested in one of Winstone’s next films: “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” He said Harrison Ford still has it, and when Ford cracks that whip for the first time, you’ll get a chill down your spine.

    Then it was on to Crispin Glover, who voices the monster Grendel in the movie. Glover, as you recall, is known for playing George McFly in “Back to the Future” … and for being rather, uh, eccentric. He arrived with a jacked-up Tiny Tim hairdo, starlet on his arm, and chatted away as we heard all this commotion in the background. The reason for the noise? Brad Pitt and “Beowulf” star Angelina Jolie, of course. They’d arrived, and the media trembled.

    After short interviews with Anthony Hopkins and John Malkovich — the latter acknowledging my greeting with “Hello, Doug from CNN” in that breathless creepy assassin voice from “In the Line of Fire” — we met Jolie. She couldn’t have been nicer. She took one look at my Steve McQueen jacket and exclaimed, “Nice jacket!” Which of course, totally made my week. When one of the world’s most beautiful women digs your wardrobe, you must be doing something right.

    Look out, ladies: I am now officially Angelina Jolie-approved!
    All just another day at the office, of course.

    Anjelina Jolie given Freedom Award for her work for refugees

    NEW YORK: Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie’s efforts to improve the lot of the refugees has won her the prestigious “Freedom Award” from the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

    She shared the award with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in recognition of their contribution to the cause of refugees. She is the goodwill ambassador for UNHCR.

    “The Freedom Award is a symbol that we will only be able to fully enjoy our freedom when everyone else is able to enjoy theirs,” said High Commissioner Antsnio Guterres at a ceremony in New York.

    Although unable to attend the award presentation ceremony, Jolie, in a video message, hailed the close partnership between UNHCR and the International Rescue Committee.

    People of concern to UNHCR include not only refugees, but related groups such as asylum-seekers, refugee returnees, stateless people and some of the estimated 25 million people who are displaced within their own countries, known as internally displaced persons (IDP).

    Since 2006, the number of refugees worldwide has been increasing and now stands at some 10 million, UNHCR said, attributing the rise largely to the crisis in Iraq.

    This was the second time that the UN agency has been honoured by the International Rescue Committee for its work protecting refugees. In 1995, the then High Commissioner Sadako Ogata received the Freedom Award.

    Caught on photo! Pete’s second hot date with Angie!

    Hey, do Brad Pitt and Madelyn Hammond know about this? Here’s a great pic of our own dashing Pete Hammond, king of the Oscars Q&A screenings, with the lovely queen of Hollywood, Angelina Jolie. (Click here to see more at JustJared.com.) (Click here to read Pete’s latest update on the Oscar derby, complete with tattle on other rivals in the best-actress race.)

    Paramount Vantage PR guru Lea Yardum gave us this on-the-spot report of the event on Monday night: “After a beautiful screening of ‘A Mighty Heart’ for 500 SAG Nominating Committee and SAG members on the Paramount lot, Angie received a standing ovation as she took the stage for her Q and A and then again after speaking about portraying Marianne Pearl for 40 minutes with moderator Pete Hammond. She then joined the 500 guests for a reception in the theater lobby, enjoyed a glass of wine and has been chatting with guests for the last 30 minutes.”

    Here’s Pete’s report to us about Angie: “She was great. This is the second time I have done this sort of interview with her and quite frankly she always makes you feel like it’s the first time she’s talked about this. Totally genuine, even getting emotional at a couple of points when talking about Marianne Pearl (who she plays) and her young son Adam. The crowd at Paramount definitely loved her and it seemed to me it was virtually at capacity, impressive since they put this screening together in less than a week’s time.”

    Fan Rant: I Just Saw ‘Beowulf’ in IMAX 3-D … and I’ll Never Be the Same
    Posted Nov 9th 2007 10:32AM by Scott Weinberg
    If you’re a regular reader of this website, then you might have noticed a little something missing over the last two weeks. That missing something is … me. So my apologies to all (five) of you who look forward to my movie reviews, horror news, and random blather — but I’ll be back in full force next week! Still, after the cinematic experience I had last night, I just had to take a break from my UK vacation and share this anecdote:

    Thanks to some contacts here in England, I was able to wrangle an invite to a BAFTA screening of Robert Zemeckis’ Beowulf — and since I was assigned that title for Cinematical review, I figured it was a smart move to go see the flick now. But then I looked a little closer at the invitation: The screenings were being held the BFI London IMAX Cinema! In Hi-Def 3-D! Whoa! (Special thanks to Mr. Alan Jones and Warner UK for the invitation!)

    Now, before I continue, I think it’s important to share some of my opinions on filmmaker Robert Zemeckis: I think the guy’s a great filmmaker, but also that his last few films (particularly The Polar Express) were more interested in technology than storytelling. But it’s pretty tough to hold a grudge against the guy who gave us Used Cars, Roger Rabbit and the Back to the Future trilogy, plus I was really curious to see what screenwriters Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary were going to do with the classic Beowulf story, so off we went to the cinema: Myself, UK FrightFest co-honcho Paul McEvoy, Severance screenwriter James Moran, and Guardian film critic Phellim O’Neal. We climbed inside the stunningly massive IMAX theater, the lights went down, and …

    Wow.

    My full review will arrive on Tuesday, but if you’ve never trusted me before, you simply must trust me on this: If you plan to go see Beowulf, you MUST see it in IMAX 3-D. Suffice to say that, for me, it was a cinematic experience on par with the first time I saw Star Wars. I felt like I was just being introduced to the future of movies — and it was staggering to behold.

    Plus the flick’s pretty darn good.

    To bold the text, or to change color, (only to blue, by the way), just put the “less than” symbol (below the K in your keyboard), then the letter B for bold, A for the color blue, or I for italic, then put the “greater than” symbol (below the letter L), then type your text. To cancel, same thing except put the back slash before the letter B, A or I.

    Beowulf Review

    Is Angelina Jolie really as hot in CG form?
    by Chris Tilly, IGN UK

    UK, November 8, 2007 – If talk of Beowulf conjures up images of listless poetry lessons at school then think again – the new big screen version of the Anglo-Saxon epic is one of the most exciting and viscerally accomplished films of the year. Using performance-capture technology and crystal clear 3D imagery, director Robert Zemeckis fully immerses the viewer in a mythical world of warriors, monsters and demons, and in doing so makes his best film for more than a decade.

    Which is no mean feat as the source material is challenging to say the least. The 3,000-line poem was written sometime in the sixth century and revolves about a Viking warrior who saves an ancient Danish kingdom from destruction at the hands of a terrible beast. The plot is pure Hollywood, but the convoluted and disparate nature of the original text couldn’t be further from modern, three-act screenplay structure. Writers Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary have decided to play fast and loose with the story however, filling in the poem’s many blanks to create a convincing and wholly satisfying adventure about the battle between good and evil and the nature of true heroism.

    Their story kicks off with King Hrothgar’s kingdom under attack from Grendel, a malevolent monster hell-bent on delivering death and destruction to the Danes. A feast for the eyes, it immediately becomes clear that visually, Beowulf is quite unlike any movie ever made. The filmmakers have fine-tuned the motion-capture technology so at times the humans look photo-realistic – no dead-eyed Polar Express-style kids here – rather we get lifelike characters with faces every bit as expressive as their human counterparts.

    Beowulf himself is a triumph – a muscular warrior with a disdain for clothes that allows the viewer to see (almost) every line and curve of his brilliantly computer generated body. As for the vocal performance, it’s initially jarring to hear Ray Winstone’s cockney growl coming from the body of such a Viking Adonis, but by the end of the film his casting makes perfect sense.
    Angelina Jolie’s monster on the prowl.

    As played by Angelina Jolie, Grendel’s mother is also an incredibly accomplished creation. Making full use of the star’s obvious talents, she pads and slinks around her underwater lair like some feline seductress from hell – It’s one of the most sexually charged performances Jolie has yet committed to film.

    As for Grendel himself, the filmmakers have created one of the great big-screen creatures – a superhuman giant dripping bubbling blood and festering flesh from every godless pore. Crispin Glover, who last worked with Zemeckis on Back to the Future more than 20 years ago, imbues the creature with just the right combination of anger, violence, sadness and pathos to create a truly memorable movie monster.

    But forget plotting and performance – Beowulf is all about action, and in this respect the results are truly jaw-dropping. Fully utilizing the limitless computer canvas, the camera swoops and soars around the expansive CG sets, viewing proceedings from hitherto impossible angles and vantage points.

    - © 2007 by Paramount Pictures and Shangri-la Entertainment, LLC. All Rights Reserved.Beowulf battles Grendel
    From the violently breathless opening exchanges, the film rarely slows down to catch its breath. Battle after battle ensues, the monsters becoming ever larger and more dangerous and the combat increasingly eventful and outlandish, culminating in an astonishing finale following an enormous fire-breathing dragon in flight. These spectacular set-pieces make full use of the 3D technology, and will have the audience ducking and diving for cover. With James Cameron currently working on his own 3D epic Avatar and several other filmmakers following suit, this might just be the future of theatrical releases, and if so we’re all in for a treat.

    On the negative side, the film does have several dramatic lulls between the action sequences and the sporadic attempts at humour are corny in the extreme. Also, so much of the film’s appeal lies in the 3D-IMAX experience that one wonders how impressive the action will be when screened in normal 35mm (my guess would be pretty underwhelming).
    That said; all credit to Zemeckis and his team for taking an ancient Anglo-Saxon text and giving it the most modern of spins. By combining cutting edge technology with good old-fashioned storytelling they’ve created a truly original feature that genuinely takes the breath away.

    Anjelina Jolie given Freedom Award for her work for refugees

    NEW YORK: Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie’s efforts to improve the lot of the refugees has won her the prestigious “Freedom Award” from the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

    She shared the award with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in recognition of their contribution to the cause of refugees. She is the goodwill ambassador for UNHCR.

    “The Freedom Award is a symbol that we will only be able to fully enjoy our freedom when everyone else is able to enjoy theirs,” said High Commissioner Antsnio Guterres at a ceremony in New York.
    Although unable to attend the award presentation ceremony, Jolie, in a video message, hailed the close partnership between UNHCR and the International Rescue Committee.

    People of concern to UNHCR include not only refugees, but related groups such as asylum-seekers, refugee returnees, stateless people and some of the estimated 25 million people who are displaced within their own countries, known as internally displaced persons (IDP).
    Since 2006, the number of refugees worldwide has been increasing and now stands at some 10 million, UNHCR said, attributing the rise largely to the crisis in Iraq.

    This was the second time that the UN agency has been honoured by the International Rescue Committee for its work protecting refugees. In 1995, the then High Commissioner Sadako Ogata received the Freedom Award.

    Also among those who were submitted is animation hybrid “Beowulf,” which features live-action film mixed with CG tones. Adding international flare to the race is France’s “Persepolis” and Japan’s “Tekkonkinkreet.”

    “Alvin,” “Persepolis” and “Beowulf” were submitted but still need their required qualifying run in Los Angeles.

    Of the 12 entries, three will be chosen for the Oscar race. In order to have five nominees, 16 or more films must be submitted.

    The Oscar nominations will be announced on Jan. 22.
