Angelina Jolie's 'Economist' Article

Angelina Jolie's 'Economist' Article

The Economist has published Angelina Jolie‘s article for their annual spin-off issue, The World in 2008. CLICK HERE to read the full article.

In other news, Angelina Jolie‘s adoption of daughter Zahara in July 2005 was completely legal, the agency involved said on Thursday.

Tabloids reported earlier this week that relatives of two-year-old Zahara, including a woman who says she is her birth mother, want the child returned to Ethiopia.

“The court in Addis Ababa approved the adoption after studying the document her grandmother wrote … saying her daughter, the mother of Zahara, had died and she was too poor to bring her up,” Tsegaye Berhe, the head of Wide Horizons for Children adoption agency told Reuters.

“The grandmother brought three witnesses to court who testified that Zahara‘s mother had died and that her father was unknown … The court also investigated the social status of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt before approving the adoption. [The adoption was] legal and irrevocable. The controversy is media hype by unethical journalists exploiting the poverty of the grandmother.”

In other words, reporters paid the relatives to raise the dispute.

A year for accountability

Angelina Jolie, goodwill ambassador to the UNHCR, hopes for progress in bringing war criminals to justice

On a recent mission for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, I had the opportunity to visit a refugee camp in Chad just across the border with Sudan. Sitting with a group of refugees, I asked them what they needed. These were people who had seen family members killed, neighbours raped, their villages burned and looted, their entire communities driven from their land. So it was no surprise when people began listing the things that could improve their lives just a little bit. Better tents, said one; better access to medical facilities, said another. But then a teenage boy raised his hand and said, with powerful simplicity, “Nous voulons un procès.” We want a trial.

A trial might seem a distant and abstract notion to a young man for whom the inside of a courtroom is worlds away from the inside of a refugee camp. But his statement showed a recognition of something elemental: that accountability is perhaps the only force powerful enough to break the cycle of violence and retribution that marks so many conflicts.

I believe 2008 can be the year in which we begin seeking true accountability and demanding justice for the victims in Darfur and elsewhere. Through accountability we can begin the process of righting past wrongs, and even change the behaviour of some of the world’s worst criminals.

The international tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda have shown the way in convicting heads of state and generals for genocide and crimes against humanity. The UN-backed special court for Sierra Leone has already sentenced three former leaders of a pro-government militia to jail for war crimes committed during the country’s civil war in the 1990s.

In Cambodia, the joint UN-Cambodian court to try top former Khmer Rouge leaders with war crimes and crimes against humanity has begun calling witnesses. It has taken a long time to get even this far, but a trial is likely in 2008. In The Hague, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has begun trials of two of the Congolese leaders charged with fomenting killings and rapes amid the violence that has raged there for over a decade.

Make no mistake, the existence of these trials alone changes behaviour. Seeing the indictment of Thomas Lubanga and the detention of Germain Katanga by the ICC brought to mind a trip I had taken to Congo five years ago. In the Ituri region, where Mr Katanga’s reign of terror had been most intense, our group attended a meeting of rebel leaders. They had gathered in a field to discuss the prospects for a peace agreement—which were not looking very good. The conversation turned hostile and the situation grew extremely tense. At that point, one of my colleagues asked for the name of one of the rebels, announcing, perhaps a bit recklessly, that he was going to pass it along to the ICC.

It was remarkable: this rebel leader’s whole posture changed from aggression to conciliation. The ICC had been around for only five months. It had tried no one. Yet its very existence was enough to intimidate a man who had been terrorising the population for years.

Ending the cycle of violence

This is not an isolated example. Accountability has the potential to change behaviour, to check aggression by those who are used to acting with impunity. Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the prosecutor of the ICC, has said that even genocide is not a crime of passion; it is a calculated decision. He is right. Common sense tells us that when risks are weighed, decisions are made differently. When crimes against humanity are punished consistently and severely, the killers’ calculus will change.

My hope is that these examples of justice in the name of accountability will be just a few of the many to come. I hope that the Sudanese government will hand over the government minister and the janjaweed militia leader who have been indicted for war crimes by the ICC, and that the teenager I met in Chad will get to see the trial he seeks. I hope that those responsible for the atrocities in Darfur will be held to account, not only for that young man’s sake, but for the world’s.

Only through justice will we achieve peace. And only when there is peace will the world’s nearly 39m displaced persons and refugees be able to return home.

The strong preying upon the weak and the weak, upon achieving strength, extracting retribution: this is the nature of so many of the world’s conflicts. The role of aggressor and victim may alternate over time, the tools of destruction may become more sophisticated, but little else changes.

Despite the horror I have seen in my travels, the hopeful lesson I take is that we can begin to put an end to the cycle of violence and retribution that gives rise to war criminals and sets forth floods of refugees. Let 2008 be the year in which we see the principle of accountability put into action.

Thanks JJ for the new thread. Love her and her family.

Tabloid writers make their living out of catering to Jolie-Pitt haters (“MiniVan majority”) who are so desperate for any bad news for Angie. There are no shortage of resentful and insecure women who take their own misery out on successful, beautiful and talented Angelina. HATERS are the ones who are exploiting the poor grandmother in Africa. Shame on you.

Thank you so much JJ for posting Angelina’s ‘Economist’ article.You are wonderful. Wow Angie all Beauty and Brain. Gotta love her!

# 9

Thanks JJ. It’s a great article.

What OutTouch did is discusting. I think your law makers have to something about the tabloids. They should be accountable for their lies. They playing with people, real people, with real lifes, and not fiction characters of their bad made up stories.

God, keep blessing and watching over the Jolie-Pitt family.

ANY TRUE JOLIE / PITTS FAN KNOWS THAT STORY ABOUT Z IS JUST BULL AND VICIOUS. I DID’T BELIEVE IT FOR ONE SECOND AND I AM FROM AFRICA. I KNOW FOR SURE THAT THE NEWS PAPER OR TABS USED THOSE TWO INDIVIDUALS JUST TO WRITE A VERY VICIOUS REPORT ABOUT THIS FAMILY.
JUST LIKE PEOPLE MAG MANY MORE TABS AND NEWS AGENCIES ARE GOING TO START APPOLOGIZING TO THIS FAMILY AND STOP WRITING FALSE AND VICIOUS REPORTS.

GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY.

In Touch magazine SUCKS!!! How low can you sink? B@stards.
However, WAY TO GO ANGIE! WOW! I’m so proud to be your fan, you go, girl!

LIKE ALL CONTROVERSY SURRONDING HER

The controversy is media hype by unethical journalists exploiting the poverty of the grandmother

An article in The Economist is fantastic. Go, Angelina! Please let those vultures at In Touch magazine go unnoticed.

~*~Get Real~*~ @ 11/15/2007 at 1:52 pm

i never believe any of the bull that is written in those tabs. i come here for all my info. if it aint on just jared then it aint worth reading. IMO

where are the kiddies? haven’t seen them in a long time. im starting to miss them.

Thanks for reiterating the adoption facts Jared. I had read them along time ago, but couldn’t refind them.
Great article.

Thanks JJ for the new thread and helping to stop the lies. Hello to all fans!! Haven’t been on in awhile but always support the JP’s! :)

We don’t believe anything from tabloids , particularly when it comes to Brad and Angie.Don’t buy any tabloid magazine anymore.

She has a complete life doesn’t she?

Good article in a good magazine.

I forgot to say thanks, JJ. Most people won’t even know this exists but we all know and it’s on JJ. That’s what counts.

IS THERE NO DECENCY? NOT WITH TABLOIDS THEY’LL DO ANYTHING TO SELL A STORY UNFORTUNATELY PEOPLE KEEP BUYING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITH THE CONTINUE SALES OF THEIR MAGAZINES BOUGHT BY OUR FELLOW CITIZENS. IT WILL ONLY STOP IF WE THE PUBLIC DEMAND IT TO STOP BY NOT PURCHASING THEIR MAGAZINES.

Tabloids always want to sell blood money. Don’t believe everything you read. JUST JAREd is the only true source with regards to AJ and BP, and they don’t trash other celebrities too. AJ and BP are kind and generous people who wants to help and raise unfortunate children. These children who’s been adopted by wealthy people are lucky and very fortunate, I’m sure these children will be thankful and grateful that they are choosen. So shut your nasty big mouth if you don’t have nothing good to say. They will always find or invent something to ruined a good relationship because they don’t have one.

Boycott tabloids

Hello to all BAMPZS Fans :-)

Angie just keeps on doing what she believes in trying to fight the injustice around the world and try to make a difference while the others worry about her split pants or questioning her LEGAL adoption of Zee. Now who is pathetic and looks like a fool?????

I am so proud of Angie. She’s not only beautiful or talented but extremely intelligent. She’s one in a million.

Thanks JJ for the new thread.

Have a great day ladies.

A GOOD AND HOPEFUL ARTICLE

something @ 11/15/2007 at 2:02 pm

don’t really care for aj and brad too much…. BUT that said.. in no way should that child be removed from them. they seem to be good parents and that is what matters most.
that is their child and to have even the thought out there that its not is just wrong. money hungry people will always try to bring drama into rich peoples lives/

do you guys think she’ll write another book?

Thank you for this Jared. It’s greatly appreciated. :)

Thanks Jared for the new thread.

Angie did a great job with the article in The Economist and I am so proud to be her fan. Keep on doing what you do Angie, because the truth will always come to light.

IT Mag is pond scrum and hopefully they will finally get what they deserved.

LOVE THIS WOMAN.

Thanks, Jared, not only for Angie’s wonderful article, but clearing up the tab lies about Z’s adoption!! I like how you summed it up about the unethical journalists: “In other words, reporters paid the relatives to raise the dispute.”

Jared thanks for posting that article and clarifying about Zee’s adoption.

totally.

It’s called Karma. She was rude about Madonna and now it comes back to her! She should have defended Madonna when she knew the press was against her and she knows how hard adoptions can be. But instead she was nasty. Now looks what is happening! I am sure that Z will want to see her real grandparent someday. Whether or not the adoption is legal bio parents and grandparents should always have rights to a child. Angie should take that child to see them.

Perhaps Angie should have offered this family the thousands she is spending on this child to help support the family and keep this baby. Babies as much as possible belong with their brith family.

jj you are the best,outa touch are a bunch of bas*ards,i hope the get what they derserve for all the lies and made up ****

Here we have an example of two extremes: Angelina Jolie educating herself and trying to make a positive difference in the world and the tabloid press showing the depths of their cruelty and dishonesty.

It takes courage and strength to look at suffering and atrocity and still be positive about the world and our potential.

What qualities can be attributed to someone who deviously contrives a story suggesting that a little girl should be separated from her legal and loving parents????!! They are so disgusting.

I knew all a long that was a bunch of bull coming from In Touch I’m glad a reputable organization told the truth about the manner. I loved Angelina’s article in the Economist.

Yes, it’s called Karma. Tabloids were proven wrong. Since you are just a hater who doens’t have any concern for Zahara anyway, let me give you some news. If Zahara belonged to her family, she won’t belong anywhere today, except in her little grave. Of course, you can’t care less about that, do you.

OMG! Now the tabs are bringing their kids into this. What, no more break-up and fighting news on AJ & BP. They should be ashame of themselves. This is truly disgusting and shameful.

About the article. BRAVO Angie1!! Good job

originaltruth @ 11/15/2007 at 2:19 pm

#36 What came back to her? That the adoption is final and irrevocable? Keep up with the good works Angie and God will continue to bless you.

YAY!!!!!!11 I can just see her running to Brad all giddy like the cutie she is, waving the magazine and telling him see, I’m not just an actress you know!”

Squeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s Brad’s ‘Baby Doll” everyone.

Congrats to one of the hardest working & passionate young women.

You think someone should lose their child because they were allegedly ruse to Madonna? That is psycho sick. Angelina wasn’t rude or nasty and she apologized for her assessment of Madonna’s adoption but it looks like she was right given the problems Madonna and Guy Ritchie have had finalizing the adoption of David — a child with a living parent and yet you seem fine with Madonna taking him out of the country away from his father and not visit since. Madonna is probably afraid if she takes David to see his family the authorities won’t let leave again. Since you are so adamant about babies needing to stay with their birth parents where is your criticism of Madonna?

African Girl @ 11/15/2007 at 2:20 pm

And THIS right here is why is Jared is a stand up guy! How many blogs have the REAL Adoption Story up? I’m willing to bet the answer is a big fat Zero… yet they fall all over themselves printing the lies. At this point, anyone who still believes anything from the Tabs needs to be committed…honestly.

Thank you very much Jared…You are the best.

A big hello to all JP & JJ fans. MF…it’s good to see you posting again (was on the last thread and saw you lovely handiwork)

is on yahoo news,hopefully people will read it,and not buy outa touch mag tommorrow,this made my day,truth always comes out,as for sam,you are a stupid fool,not worth our reply

I don't get it @ 11/15/2007 at 2:22 pm

I don’t understand why these tabloids are trying so hard to break them up. If they are not together, how are these tabloids going to continue to make money off of them?

of course tabloids using for media attention, because brad and angie & family are the well known hollywood superstar right now. once you mention angie and brad in your article, media notice right away. you guys, all the real people who has been following this couple, since the beginning of their unique relationship who love them, don’t let the bad tabloids going inside of your brain. I’ve been buying all magazines before, but when I found out that it all lies, I never buy the tabloid magazines since then. I only buy certain Magazine now, like People and Hello. Angie and Brad are the remarkable holywood star right now, I am starting to notice, matt,cheadle,leo for his passion towards the environment,Clooney(but I not totally yet), all the holywood star who is doing a great job helping other people, epecially the unfortunate, I applauded you all and I promise to support your movie by every movie you make, together we work better and make the world a better place to live. Hopefully, people doesn’t know anything will wake up and see the real truth and nothing but the real truth what is going on the world that we living in right now. Hope this will help to everybody, and stop writing nonsense and stupid accusation to someone you don’t even know. thanks jared for this oppurtunity!

originaltruth @ 11/15/2007 at 2:24 pm

All the tabloid lies backfired this week, didn’t they?

Something occured to me yesterday with People retracting the “split pant” story. The story made it on the radio and I’d heard it for three days straight in their entertainment reports. They even had a “Call in and tell us if you’ve ever had it happen to you” segment. I haven’t heard anything on the station about the fact that the story was false. That means that millions of listeners probably still believe that Angie split her pants. It’s not a big deal, but that means that millions of trash readers will believe In Touch’s story, as vile as it is, because it’s now in circulation. All the rags should be shut down if they’re going to sink this low. They shouldn’t be allowed to freely attack children like this. It’s absolutely disgusting! The media medium right now is scary, but THANK YOU ANGIE FOR WRITING WORTHWHILE ARTICLES.

I think its a generally well thought out article, the vocabulary is a little elementary (meaning it will be less likely to appeal to ir scholars or theorists, what have you) but the intention was there. I wish she would have used more facts, though…just to cover all the bases. At least she cared enough to take the time out to write the article. And it would be nice to see the ICC actually DO something :)

It’s sad isn’t it…that instead of taking a page out of AJ’s book and do something worthy, these INSECURE women wait anxiously for her to fail.

54,yes,all the tabloid lies backfired,guys lets send it to other blogs

Shame on you, unethical journalists! I stopped buying tabloids long ago. Not a good example. Very misleading and truly pathetic that they still lie to try and ruin Angelina. The girl is amazing and continues doing great things, not only for her children and Pitt but for the other people in the world! I read and love her article. More power to her.

Accountability will be perfect to end all this unfairness attitude. Thanks Jared

Sam got all exited that didn’t read the statement from the adopcion agency lol

Angie was NOT at all rude in her comments about Madonna. Of course if you only read the tabloid account of what she said you might get that idea. She was asked about the adoption, and said:
about her supposed quotes in a french magazine..

“The article included many falsehoods,” Jolie said in a statement on Monday. “I said many positive things that were omitted. I feel we must focus on the present and I encourage everyone to be supportive so that every child can adjust nicely to their new home.”

In an interview in Gala magazine, Jolie, 31, said of Madonna and her efforts to adopt 1-year-old David Banda: “Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where (David) was born. It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.”

But Jolie, whose son Maddox, 5, and Zahara, who turned 2 on Monday, are from Cambodia and Ethiopia, respectively, has sympathy for the singer. “I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to,” she says. “All that should count is the happiness of her little David.”
———————————————————————–
BTW, are you aware that Z was extremely sick when Angie adopted her? She would be most likely DEAD now if not adopted. but that isnt important to you is it..not as important as criticizing Angelina.

As the old adages goes….

Women are our own worst enemy. And it’s so true!

GladGladGlad @ 11/15/2007 at 2:33 pm

At least AJ is oblivious to most of this stuff. I remember at LA premiere of O13 some one of the TV airhead entertainment show hostesses said “oh we heard about the poem pendant Brad designed for you birthday blahblahblah” and Angelina had the most dead blank look on her face I’ve ever seen and said “I don’t know about that I got something else very sweet.” She really blocks this stuff out! I bet the Zahara mess eeked through ********!

lets make it ignore the trolls day,am tire of people like sam

Mr and Mrs Smith @ 11/15/2007 at 2:40 pm

You know what I really LOVE? That NEITHER Angie nor Brad or any of their representatives made a comment about the Zahara story. Instead, the Ethiopian adoption agency is the one which made the official statement. I think OutTouch was expecting them to respond in some way, but, they must be somewhat disappointed that once again, their target isn’t paying them any attention.

65 GladGladGlad : 11/15/2007 at 2:33 pm

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

During Angie’s latest promotion for the movie ‘Beowulf’, Angie said that friends tell her what’s being written. So I am sure that she and Brad were told about the latest round of lies about Zahara’s adoption. I bet even Cindy G. got calls about it, too.

When it comes to the children it’s a whole different ballgame where Angie and Brad are concern. It’s one thing to lie about them and another to lie about their children.

I don’t think it’s the Mini Van majority who reads these tabloids. They are into Martha & Oprah & Colin Cowie, Tiffany charm bracelets and having a Danielle Steele novel life.

The people that read these seem to be lower income women (no disrespect) who thrive on misery. Then they can feel smug at the negative news and feel some sort of hollow satisfaction that even “these” people have problems. Pathetic….

Fold that freaking tent and just live in a cave. That’s where you belong. You’re an annoying, repulsive excuse of a human being! Tsupiii!

I am sure that Z will want to see her real grandparent someday. Whether or not the adoption is legal bio parents and grandparents should always have rights to a child. Angie should take that child to see them. ________________________________________________________________

1) Angie was in no way rude towards Madonna.

2) Why should the birth family always have rights? When you think about it, blood doesn’t really mean much. Angelina and Brad are Zahara’s parents and they are her family now. End of story. I think taking her to see her bio family at such a young age would do more harm than good. When she’s old enough, she can decide on her own whether or not she wants to meet her bio family.

Angie is a truly remarkable human being. I am so proud to be her fan.
She’s smart, articulate and passionate of her cause. I can’t think of anyone in hollywood past or present that has achieved the worldwide status as she does right now. She’s in a different league that is hard to fathom the thought is there anyone else can top her? I admire her conviction. She is a true icon today and forever. I love you, Angie.

Angelina should keep the baby. It is hers legally. One question though: why is Zahara’s grandmother in poverty? Why don’t Brad and Angelina financially support her? Just like David Banda’s father. How can celebrities adopt poor kids and live with the fact that tehir kin is living in poverty? This is the tricky part of adoption. Angelina should support the grandmother. It is Zahara’s bloodline.

tino tonatini @ 11/15/2007 at 2:54 pm

Brad pitt still the good looking guy! I don’t see much change on him for people calling him he looks old I bet the differ…

that is why there are so much problem right now, because of the bad media, and of course mostly people are buying this magazines are people who doesn’t know the real about anything. What the media write on their magazines that we read, we absulotely believe them right away. The educated people never buy this magazine because they are smart and know the truth. But most of the people are uneducated like me, if you don’t seek the truth, real truth will not come to you. to make it short, support only the thruth and ignore the lies and try to educate yourself by seeking the truth. like angie, if you read her story, she did not see the truth till she went to Cambodian to shoot her Tom Raider Movie. That’s the first time she saw those Refugees people. What did she do after that?, she phoned the United Nation right away and talked to them that she want to work with the UN. Please, don’t let lies ruin your time, time is running. Each of us, think what we can contribute to this world before we go back to mother earth. don’t just waste your time and energy, try to accomplish something nice and if you do after that it feel really satisfying. Thanks!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

IA. I think that is why all the tabs spin these far out stories. They want a direct response from Brad/Angie or there rep. It is the only way to get a quote from Angie or Brad. The tabs know that they don’t have any sources to what is going on in t hat relationship and they hate it, so they bash them in hopes of a reaction. Sort of like the trolls that come here. They says things like Angie doesn’t like Shilo or Brad is the worst thing to every happen to Angie. Everyone knows these things are ridiculous including the trolls but they say them to get a reaction from the fans.

i hate E,but today they did a good thing by printing the truth about Z,i still hate them

69- WTF -
I’m not taking offense to your comment, but I AM a lower income woman. I’ve actually never had a whole lot of money, even growing up. However, I never thrived on misery and I’m very thankful for all I have today. I’m not envious of wealthier people. I think the people who ACTUALLY BELIEVE the trash mags are people who are easily influenced and don’t ask questions. I, and all the fans here, have enough of a brain not to believe it and to get informed.

wow, beauty and brains…and most of all big heart and lovely soul…that’s Angelina Jolie, and that’s why she is among the people who inspire me the most.

Angie, your transformation over the years gives me hope that people can change for the better and become their very best.

When are they gonna start SUING the TABLOID MAGAZINES???

I know that Angie and Brad always prove the tablies wrong, but when are they gonna start suing them? This time, they paid the poor relatives of their daughter Z to raise a dispute! Very wrong!

You know what.. I don’t blame the so called family members who are saying that they want Zahara returned, I blame the “reporters” who went there and offered these people money to say these things. Those people are very poor so of course they would do that for money, it’s just sad that people would take advantage of people who are so desperate……. Shame on them!

econo-people @ 11/15/2007 at 3:01 pm

Who gives a shite what Angelina Jolie thinks about Sudan?
The Economist is turning into People magazine.

I’d rather hear from Judge Mrs. Akua KUENYEHIA (Ghana)
Professor Kuenyehia was elected for a nine-year term from the African Group of States, and is assigned to the Pre-Trial Division.

She was Dean, Faculty of Law of the University of Ghana before her election as a judge. During her time at that university, she taught criminal law, gender and the law, international human rights law and public international law.

She was co-ordinator of a research project entitled “Women and Law in Anglophone West Africa”, which covered Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and The Gambia. She has written three books and numerous academic publications on gender and the law, family law and international human rights.

Judge Kuenyehia is a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Ghana. She has experience as solicitor, advocate and human rights expert, and in criminal law and procedure. She also has experience as an administrator and has expertise in gender and the law, international human rights issues and was a member of the Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

It would be nice if Angelina gave the poor grandmother a stipend every month. If Brad and Angelina are millionaires then their daughter’s grandma should not be poor.

Thank you Jared!!! What a great article. Amazing out of all the things that poor child needs phyiscally he wants justice and I don’t blame him.

So Angelina and Brad, just because they have money, have to suport every family member of the children they adopted? That’s stupid.

Angelina and Brad adopted a child in a orphanage. They don’t know nor adopted the children family member and they don’t have any obligations towards them.

Angelina does not need to support the Grandmother. She adopted Zahara not the family. Love Zee. She is beautiful. Angie rocks!

“The court in Addis Ababa approved the adoption after studying the document her grandmother wrote … saying her daughter, the mother of Zahara, had died and she was too poor to bring her up,” Tsegaye Berhe, the head of Wide Horizons for Children adoption agency told Reuters.

“The grandmother brought three witnesses to court who testified that Zahara’s mother had died and that her father was unknown … The court also investigated the social status of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt before approving the adoption. [The adoption was] legal and irrevocable. The controversy is media hype by unethical journalists exploiting the poverty of the grandmother.”

In other words, reporters paid the relatives to raise the dispute.

This needs to be posted every ten posts.

Jared this is one of your best threads about the JPs. You are the only CELEBRETY blog in cyberspace who reports this kind of worth reading news. All the others are just about drugs, alcohol and break-downs.

I applauded you!!

I always knew that press in general was intentionally misleading even in global issues but before starting blogging I never knew that this kind of viciousness which is full of pure lies and false accusations can be printed in a publication. I don’t give a sh*t if it’s a tabloid or not. NONE should get away with such cruel behavior. Cause this is not only about a celebrity. It is not about who had plastic surgery or who gained too much weight or who is dating whom. This is about ADOPTION and the life of a CHILD.

People who are not informed can be easily manipulated. Can this people think a little aside from their paychecks?? Don’t they have kids or relatives who have kids?? How it would be like if they were in Brad’s and Angie’s shoes?? How it would be like if THEY had adopted a child and someone was writting that the adoption is illegal with no proof or facts?? How would they feel??

The one who wrote this article and the one who runs this piss of trash needs to be charged. This is not freedom of speech. This is a crime against adoption. And an attack against a little child.

This world is so f*cked up.

Thank God I’m still young and I MUST have some hope. I’m not waiting for miracles but this sh*t needs to stop.

All the blessings to Angie, Brad and their little ones.

MADDOX's MUG SHOT @ 11/15/2007 at 3:06 pm

AFTER ONLY 5 MONTHS TOGETHER, ANGIE & BRAD DECIDED TO ADOPT A CHILD? Why else would the Ethiopian Adoption Agency have to examine the relationship between her and BRAD PITT? Since Jennifer Anniston filed for divorce in March 2005 and Zahara was adopted in July 2005, that would mean, if we are to believe them that they did not start the relationship until after the divorce papers were filed, that they were together ONLY 5 MONTHS! If this is the case, then that would also mean that THESE 2 CLOWNS HAVE THE WORST JUDGEMENT EVER AND SHAME ON THE ETHIOPIAN ADOPTION INVESTIGATORS!

I personally adopted a boy in California of Cambodian descent and the paperwork that we went through were so rigorous to make everything right. Tabloids want to make money out of Brad and Angie. Poor writers they are running out of material.

guys i have send alot lot of emails to the lying blogs and outa touch,lets keep sending them

Sounds like you’re describing an arrangement a la a Charles Dickens novel or fcuking Citizen Kane, or indentured servitude, none of which applies to Zahara’s situation.

Zahara is Brad and Angelina’s child; their offering payola for Zahara is sleazy and fcuking unnecessary.

would you STFU about this? Marie Osmond has three adopted children should she or any other person who has adopted since Biblical times be supporting the “kin” instead of adopting them?

You wrote a wonderfull post!!

Reason;

Are you guys saying that blood doesn’t mean much! WOW that is quite the statement. Blood relatives are very important. Are you saying that blood grandparents should not be allowed to see their grandchildren if they are adopted? They have every right. Yes maybe these people want to make money but won’t you if you were living in poverty and the person who took your child probably spends more on their toys then you will have in a lifetime? Really these people probably even read and gave up this child because they were scared. Let’s see how much compassion Angei really has towards those in this situation. If she has any she will arrange for them to meet.

She won’t though because she couldn’t care less. Was the adoption legal. Oh yeah it was buyt that doesn’t mean it was moral,

It would be nice if Angelina gave the poor grandmother a stipend every month. If Brad and Angelina are millionaires then their daughter’s grandma should not be poor.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
she didn’t want the kid, why would brad and angelina pay her? that’s insane.

She gave Z to an adoption agency, that’s how it end their relationship with them.

#52 I Don’t Get It : Of course the tabs want the JP’s to break-up. Think of all the spin the tabs can get out of it – why? who? where? when? what’s Mad got to do with it? did Z in anyway turn Brad and Angie against each other? what about Pax? how did he stick his fingers into it? poor poor Shiloh – abandoned by her evil mom at such a young age – how’s she to cope! will she turn into another Britney Spears as a result of this?

And this is only the tip of the tabloid iceberg!!! Think of the years and years of spin as the kids grow up and the parents grow older – Angie an old hag…how Brad takes pity on her…and take her out for a motorcycle ride for old time sake! Kids in rehab…who’s to blame?

Sheeesh.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Not really.

I am just saying: Angelina is aware the grandmother is poor and is aware of her existence so why noto help her financially. If she did not know of her existgence then there is no one to help but how couild you enjoy Zahara everyday and yet know her grandmother is poor as dirt and not help her? Same with Madonna. You adopt the man’s son yet you know the man is dirt poor and do nothing for it? People like that should adopt kids whose families they do not know but if you are aware of the family’s existence then at least buy her a house or something to help her live her old days. At least Zahara can have someone to visit when she is an adult. The grandmother is responsible for Zahara being here so help her. That is all. What is so hard about that?

When the poseur lost the prince to a real princess, they were back to being the mediocre who somehow just got lucky once and never will again. Cinderella’s coach turned back into a pumpkin and she’s back in the kitchen scrubbing floors and talking to rats. They will forever hate Angie for that.

Angelina should keep the baby. It is hers legally. One question though: why is Zahara’s grandmother in poverty? Why don’t Brad and Angelina financially support her? Just like David Banda’s father. How can celebrities adopt poor kids and live with the fact that tehir kin is living in poverty? This is the tricky part of adoption. Angelina should support the grandmother. It is Zahara’s bloodline.

um
Excuse me but.. most children adopted in the US are NOT orphans. Many are poor or in some ways not equipped to provide for a child. Should all celebs and americans who adopt from this country also provide for the bio families? this is crazy. You will be having people getting pregnant just so they can be taken care of economically.

Why is Z’s grandmother in Poverty???? You obviously need to do some reading about the problems and hardships of other countries.

News outlets, including Us Weekly, reported that Angelina Jolie’s black Versace pants split on the red carpet at the London premiere of Beowulf November 11.

Though a seam appeared to be split in photos, her stylist Jen Rade tells Usmagazine.com it was a zipper.

In fact, Rade says Jolie “even wore the pants home on the plane.”

First of all, Jennifer Aniston is stunning and was declared the woman who sells the most magazines. Number two, I agree, Angelina should give the family money. If it was Jennifer, she would do it. She has a heart. I would imagine that is why Jen won’t adopt: because she knows she would rather not take a kid away from their Grandma without paying their Grandma some money. Instead, Jen gives money to St Jude’s. Poor Angelina, she does not know better. But she tries.

sbc,that will look like they are paying for the baby,this two have done so much,if we cannot support them we should let them be,am from Africa i know how wide spread poverty is and how horrible the orphanages are,these women are given us Africans a bad name,she should be greatful that z is healthy and happy,z could have had childhood diseases or died of malnutrition,brad and angie should be praised.let me assure you that am sure majority of people are not greedy as those people,you can be poor but still have some dignity,they spoiling it for other babies who need adoiptive parents

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Angelina adopted Zahara as a single parent and made that very clear at the time. Brad went to Ethiopia as a friend. Maddox was on the trip as well. Brad wasn’t with her when she was united with Zahara. There is no provision in Ethiopian adoption law for unmarried couples to adopt. In fact, most countries with international adoption programs don’t allow adoption AS A COUPLE if you aren’t legally married.

110 sbc : 11/15/2007 at 3:18 pm

Why just the grandmother? Why not the ants, the uncles, the cousins… hell the all family. That is stupid.

Brad and Angie adopted a child, not the all family.

People do have a lot to say from the sidelines when this particular couple adopt.

Zahara would not be here had she not been adopted.She would have died, according to the doctor. Isn’t it hypocritical to talk about blood relatives and scrutiny of Brad and Angelina when this vibrant little girl would have died?

The true test of her birth family’s love is in their being happy that she was saved from that situation and is now healthy and part of a loving family.

think positive! @ 11/15/2007 at 3:30 pm

It doesn’t take just blood and sperm to be a parent. Blood is not everything. There are parents out there who abuse their children daily. Should I call them parents because of sharing the same blood??

Some people are really confused.

As Brad said:

“My kids are my blood as much as any natural born. I can’t live without them”

It takes great strength and courage to raise a child that is not related to you. And it takes to work hard daily to be a parent. It’s the unconditional love and the commitment. Not just blood.

#124

Jen was declared the woman who sells more magazines based on how she sells tabloids. And jen won’t adopt because she is selfish. If she had a heart..she would want to take a child into her home who might otherwise DIE…and since Jen is worth 110 Million dollars.. she must really also be greedy based on what YOU think because if not, she would adopt and give money to the bio family. Right?

Zahara was Brad’s first daughter. I don’t know why but the haters can’t stand it.

Econo-people – I think you’re losing sight of the point here – the point is to spread the word about the atrocities in Darfur. Wonderful as Judge Mrs. Akua KUENYEHIA may be, do you think that the typical person would go out of his way to seek out her article? As evidenced by the number of people who have now read Angelina’s article and consequently learned about Darfur, she was very successful in spreading the word. So what if it was an actress who wrote it? So what if she’s no scholar? Does that make her any less compassionate; does that give her less of a right to feel that she has to say something about the genocide? And if ordinary people like me read Angelina’s article and as a result seek out more information, maybe even Judge Mrs. Akua KUENYEHIA’s work, then didn’t Angelina fulfil her purpose? Sad to say, it’s your elitist attitude that turn a lot of people off.

what is it about the word adoption that no one understands?
adoption = give up all rights to a child forever and beyond. The world & the law doesn’t look too kindly to people appearing out of the woodworks and claiming anyone. This is ridiculous. People are acting like they don’t know what adoption is now. Lawd hammersy.

I think the adoption story is being discussed because Jared has put the statement from the Ethiopian adoption agency here. I really really like that he did that too. He’s probably the only blog to do that, but, he’s always been different from the rest. So, I guess there are two topics people can discuss, the adoption one, and the article that Angie wrote. :)

TABLOIDS, WE’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE JOLIE PITTS LIES. PLEASE MOVE ON!!!!

a high school or college student could have written that had they the ability and/or finances to travel and do the proper research….not to mention, the special access that she was granted to these people because of her status. seriously, pull yourselves back and look at this without bias. it’s wonderful that she takes the time to care and contribute but…..come on. this is not the work of a genius or even a person of impressive intellect. had a “no name” contributed this piece, it never would have been even seriously considered for publication….

Jen didn’t want a child nor want to adopt a child. Too much responsibility for her being a selfish, lazy woman. And she hardly does anything for St. Jude’s… As for stunning, I’d seen other women look better.

piper, with a low @ 11/15/2007 at 3:50 pm

I forgot to comment on the article… it is great, but as I read it, I can’t help but think that although the refugees are in a decidedly drastic circumstance, in terms of seeking out justice, Angelina, despite having major bank, is also in a precarious situation when it comes to seeking fairness for herself and her family.

If she were to go after the tabs, how would that look? Suing over flyspecks, although this b^ll$hit about Zahara and Shiloh is especially nasty, could magnify how out of touch and frivolous the Western world can be.

Our country has made Angelina very wealthy, but really, our country hasn’t been very good to her, has it? Many of us criticize her from sun up to sun down and yet, she really hasn’t done anything to compromise our safety, our well-being, or our quality of life.

155 piper, with a low – Well said.

wake up Americans @ 11/15/2007 at 3:55 pm

TABLOID HAVE GONE BEYOND BEING TRASHY, THEY ARE DOWNRIGHT EVIL!

Sam – While I agree with you that blood families are not necessarily ‘not important’, my humble opinion is that you are seeing this case in a black and white situation. Adoption carries with it a lot of issues that cannot be put in a simple equation as ‘birth families have rights, therefore adopted families should respect those rights.’

When Z’s grandmother gave her up for adoption, she was giving up any legal rights to her grandchild. Did that make her a bad grandmother? Not necessarily. She most probably did do it out of extreme poverty. Does she really want to see her grand daughter again? She most probably does, and I feel for her pain, but adoption is not about her. It’s mostly about the child.

From what I can tell, Angie and Brad are very loving parents, and any decision they make will be for the best interest of their child, as they see fit, just like any good parents. It’s possible that they feel that at this stage in Z’s life, she should have stability, and therefore bringing in someone whom she probably doesn’t even remember would create that imbalance. Maybe they would prefer that Z face this when she is much older, and able to decide on her own if she wants to do it or not. Does Z want to see her grandmother? Maybe.. or maybe not. She’s too young to really decide.

These are all speculations on my part, much as any other scenario anyone else outside this family unit would have (including your own speculations as to why they’re not doing it). Bottomline is, there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer when it comes to issues like this. It’s a judgment call that Angie and Brad reserve the right as Z’s parents – and yes, they ARE her parents. And again, as far as I call tell, they adore and love Z, and would not do anything that they feel would not be in her best interest. As to whether they are right or wrong in their decision, that’s neither for me nor you to judge.

Don’t quite understand your guys excitment over bewolf. The success of this movie has nothing to do with angelina. She is in it for 6 minutes. Any naked hollywood beauty could have the same effect. The only difference is that most of them (i.e. halle berry, etc.) would never do this kind of thing. Also the world has shown in AMH and The Good shepherd that they really don’t like seeing Angie’s movies. Angie was out promoting so hard becuase she is desperate for a lead oscar the others were happy do have her do it becuase they don’t like the spotlight like she does. She loves showing off just like when she was with Billy Bob. In fact she is acting the exact same way!

But go ahead I know that you guys think that if the movie does well it is all about Angie. I understand you have to live in your delusion it hard to admit that The Good Shepherd, AMH and AOJJ all BOMBED badly. So if you want to think that the movie’s success is becuase of Angie I understand!

I love messing with you guys. It is so fun and you get so worked up!!!!!

I think people involve in this kind of magazines don’t think ethics. Greedines is their priority not the decency of real journalism. Probably their mission is not to inform the public but to provoked negative reactions. GREEDINES is their priprity.

News outlets, including Us Weekly, reported that Angelina Jolie’s black Versace pants split on the red carpet at the London premiere of Beowulf November 11.

Though a seam appeared to be split in photos, her stylist Jen Rade tells Usmagazine.com it was a zipper.+

Zahara was Brad’s first daughter. I don’t know why but the haters can’t stand it.

You are so spot on with this statement. I have always wonder, why it bothers trolls/haters so much that Brad loves all his children no matter how they came to be his. But there does seems to more hatred when it comes to Zahara, IMO.

I forgot to comment on the article… it is great, but as I read it, I can’t help but think that although the refugees are in a decidedly drastic circumstance, in terms of seeking out justice, Angelina, despite having major bank, is also in a precarious situation when it comes to seeking fairness for herself and her family.

If she were to go after the tabs, how would that look? Suing over flyspecks, although this b^ll$hit about Zahara and Shiloh is especially nasty, could magnify how out of touch and frivolous the Western world can be.

Our country has made Angelina very wealthy, but really, our country hasn’t been very good to her, has it? Many of us criticize her from sun up to sun down and yet, she really hasn’t done anything to compromise our safety, our well-being, or our quality of life.

*****************
What a brilliant way to connect both issues. It’s sad people like Sam can’t see past their hate and try to put things in perspective (based on reality…that is)

I am just saying: Angelina is aware the grandmother is poor and is aware of her existence so why noto help her financially. If she did not know of her existgence then there is no one to help but how couild you enjoy Zahara everyday and yet know her grandmother is poor as dirt and not help her? Same with Madonna. You adopt the man’s son yet you know the man is dirt poor and do nothing for it? People like that should adopt kids whose families they do not know but if you are aware of the family’s existence then at least buy her a house or something to help her live her old days. At least Zahara can have someone to visit when she is an adult. The grandmother is responsible for Zahara being here so help her. That is all. What is so hard about that?

When the haters/trolls/tabs learn? Pant split has been debunked. Not true. Brad and tall blond. Not true. Zahara leaving her loving and happy home. Not only not true, but it will never happen.

Some people fans?, haters? are fond of saying that Brad doesn’t protect Angie against the tabs and their lies. We don’t know that he doesn’t. But one thing is for certain he doesn’t have to because the truth always comes out. There are people around the world that will support her/them, and not allow a lie to smear their good names. This couple, whether some what to believe it or not have done, or are trying to do things the right way. From Brad’s split with the x to adopting their children, to their humanitarian work someone is helping and guiding them. So much has been hurled at them. But very little, if any has stuck. And still haters come to spew vile and negative rants. How much more proof do you need to see that they are not the monsters you so badly need them to be. Please it is time for you and your hate to move on. I can only hope and pray that the next revelation is the x telling the truth and apologizing for all of her lies. Now that will be a glorious and happy day for all BAMPZS fans around the world. Peace

86 econo-people : 11/15/2007 at 3:01 pm

Who gives a shite what Angelina Jolie thinks about Sudan?
The Economist is turning into People magazine.

I’d rather hear from Judge Mrs. Akua KUENYEHIA (Ghana)
Professor Kuenyehia was elected for a nine-year term from the African Group of States, and is assigned to the Pre-Trial Division.

She was Dean, Faculty of Law of the University of Ghana before her election as a judge. During her time at that university, she taught criminal law, gender and the law, international human rights law and public international law.

She was co-ordinator of a research project entitled “Women and Law in Anglophone West Africa”, which covered Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and The Gambia. She has written three books and numerous academic publications on gender and the law, family law and international human rights.

Judge Kuenyehia is a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Ghana. She has experience as solicitor, advocate and human rights expert, and in criminal law and procedure. She also has experience as an administrator and has expertise in gender and the law, international human rights issues and was a member of the Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
================================

I appreciate you giving the credentials of Judge Kuenyehia. I have only respect for a person who works diligently to improve the circumstances of her people. I also respect the fact that you may not like Angelina. Everyone has their own choice to make. However, I do not feel that Angelina’s article is about pitting the opinions of one person against another person. These are 2 separate people with their own experiences and unique situations. To my way of thinking they bring diverse variety of ways to view the same situation. There is room for everyone to participate in this issue. Indeed if we are to be successful it is imperative that as many people as possible who are dedicated to improving the situation in Darfur and Africa join the cause.
Please pay attention to the message, and don’t be distracted about your personal feelings about the messager. I do not have a problem with dialog and debate, these are essential if a solution is to be found for the atrocities experienced by these refugees on a daily basis. This is the most important thing after all.

The truth ALWAYS wins out in the end. Patience, patience.

okay lets go over this again, someone from INTOUCH woke up one day and said how am I gonna F**k up the Jolie-Pitts today??? oh wait I will go all the way to Africa to find Zee’s relatives,pay to say the mother is not dead and wants her back!!!
wheeewww!!! tragic that some people play with other people’s lives like this and the good part about this is that Brad and Angie love their child and will fight tooth and nail for her.
Angelina is a good person some people just cant’ stand that they always create stories about her, a similar thing happened when she adopted Maddox a few years back .the orphanage is doing all the talking, thats good and haters can only try!!!!

And THIS right here is why is Jared is a stand up guy! How many blogs have the REAL Adoption Story up? I’m willing to bet the answer is a big fat Zero… yet they fall all over themselves printing the lies. At this point, anyone who still believes anything from the Tabs needs to be committed…honestly.

Thank you very much Jared…You are the best.

RACIST @SSHOLE! People like you are a waste of space. If there’s any justice, you’ll get run over by a bus.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You and the poser “Mr and Mrs Smith” wrote the racist remarks and then pretend someone else wrote it by using their screen name. That is so low and dirty. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

2. Angelina Jolie
Genuine concern for the well-being of less fortunate people is a noble pursuit, but shameless self-promotion in the guise of humanitarianism ultimately becomes nauseating. Traveling the Third World with a small army of stylists and publicists, the one-time Lara Croft feels like an unholy mix of Mother Teresa and Paris Hilton: look at the poor, but make sure you get me in my best light. Ironically, more people saw her in Cambodia or Namibia than in “A Mighty Heart.”
Anti-Freeze: How about adopting an American kid and making movies that people want to see?

Now what loonies???????????????????????????????????????????????

Brad is the best choice of boyfriend if you want the world to hate you and have no career left.

Jen was on that list on 2006 and the loonies tought it was legit, now what??????

LMAO! She’s done. Finally people are sick of her, keep thinking that the world loves her lol

Her public career is done. She should STFU about her “donations”. A lot of people does more than her and don’t talk about it every 5 seconds.

KARMA BABY

BRAD IS SO MUCH BAD LUCK

———————————————
Is this the number of the voices in her head?? DAMN!!! LMAO!!

So what if she’s in the Frigid 50? How credible is that website and why their opinion is any different than other bloggers who dislike Jolie? Everyone has the right to their opinion, so does Film Threat, but to say that a reason for Angelina to somehow redeem herself is to adopt an American kid is the most xenophobic racist piece of sh*t I hear from Americans. Not all Americans, thank God.Adoptions are a personal choice and a child’ life is saved no matter where he lives in the world. You know that the same people would say she adopted American to improve her image so it doesn’t really matter. I’m glad she continues to do her thing despite bigots, racists and narrow-judgment a*holes everywhere.

Now, I have to agree with sbc here for a moment. I love both of them and their family. But if Zahara’s bio family does exist and it seem that at least the grandmother is alive, I think she should send them money. She doesn’t have to, she doesn’t owe them anything but if she did I think Zahara will love her more for that. She doesn’t know Maddox’s family but Z and Pax have some extended family I believe. One day these children will grow up and learn about their families.How would they both feel to learn that their relatives were dirt poor and may have died of starving when they enjoyed all the luxuries of life?

Again, we don’t know if they support these families, but if they did they wouldn’t be bribed by tabloids so easily for fear of losing a steady income.I don’t think Angelina adopted the whole family but a mere &200 a month would be plenty for them and what’s $200 for Angelina? Nothing.

I Love Just Jared @ 11/15/2007 at 5:04 pm

I agree that’s why Jared is number one. I think I’m gonna do a story on his blog and how it’s the most accurate blog with the most savvy people on here. We all know the origination of the trolls because they have key words that originate at another blog who will be over by this time next year.

Jared just needs to post his disclaimer on personal attacks and slander like all reputable blogs and they sky is the limit for him. Maybe even a television show cuz the others are all about lies and innuendos. Those entertainment shows better drop the tablogs as sources and use JJ as a source.

Angie is amazing, she is larger than life. If she keeps doing this, I believe she will get Nobel Peace Prize someday. More and more people around the world admire her. She and Brad are perfect couple and they make each other better. Love them.

256 astrid : 11/15/2007 at 5:02 pm

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

So, you are saying that anyone that adopts should support the bio family?

Or is it only Angie that has to do this?

As I have said before clean your own house and let Angie tend to hers. You know live and let live!

btw you do understand there are laws that governs adoptions, right?

The court also investigated the social status of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt before approving the adoption. [The adoption was] legal and irrevocable. The controversy is media hype by unethical journalists exploiting the poverty of the grandmother.”

In other words, reporters paid the relatives to raise the dispute.

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

OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have heard everything!

i love you jen aniston!!!!!!!! i friggin’ love you!!!!!!!!!

Maniston loonies, hold your horses. Angelina was in the Frigid List in 2003, incidentally she was No. 2 then as well. Yet, 4 years later her career has bounced pretty good and she may get plenty of Noms this year. I prefer her making movies like Mighty Heart than yet another Tom Raider 3. I’ll be here to gleefully dancing around when she starts raking up noms.

guys lets talk awards,gloden globenomination is on december 13,fingers cross for both brad and angie

Here is another great one for the haters and this one is very new….

I do however, want to recognize and appreciate those regulars like guli, Mr and Mrs Smith, African girl, Passing Through, the real tita, think positive!, Frenchy, Estelle, piper, with a low, dina #1, Peaches and a score of other dedicated fans too numerous to name. The positive vibe that you contribute here is worth wading through all of the rest of the extraneous crap.

Angelina & Brad must be so excited. The holidays are about to begin next week with Thanksgiving. I’m excited because it was around this time that I knew that Brad & Angelina were serious about each other. I saw pics of them just after picking up a Christmas Tree holding the tree. How symbolic. These set of picture exist so I ‘m sure it will turn up soon again.

______________________________________________

That’s some pretty good company. Especially Natalie Portman cause I like her and think she’s got a good head on her shoulders.

Lady G,

No, I said that $200 a month wouldn’t be much for Angelina to send to them and that’s a fortune for those families. Not all adopted families can afford to do that, but she can.I am not judging her and it would be ok even if she didn’t, because she doesn’t owe them anything, but imagine if one day Zahara asks her why her relatives died in poverty and she didn’t help them out. She’s gonna hold Angelina and Brad accountable and she may not be entirely wrong on that.

Again, she’s not responsible for them, but I wish she did it. I wouldn’t love her any less but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with everything she does or doesn’t.

guys i think the GG is where their chances are stronger

289,i doubt that was the real grandmother,people do anything for money

273 Me too—-there are so many great JP fans here from all over the world and I think most of the folks who have been here for years love meeting new JP fans. I want to thank you for your post and I’m hoping more JP fans will chime in on regular basis. :-) BBL….

“btw are you a lawyer? Do you run an adoption agency? Do you understand or know the laws that governs adoptions?”

Lady G, what’s next? WHAT ARE MY CRIMES??? HAVE I RAPED ANY BABIES? Yes, it’s possible to have a different opinion and still be a fan of this family. Are you friends with Cliniqua by the way? Jesus.

Astrid, you don’t know what Angie does and what she does not do. Just leave her alone. Because someone does, does not meant they should be responsible for the world. They do what’s best for their kids. Do you like the whole world to tell you what to do?

I just sent an e-mail to the editor of Outa Touch telling her she has the moral sense of a skid-row prostitute and the only thing her magazine is good for is to line a garbage can.

Is it me or did the Ethiopian source just say – Brad and Angelina jointly went to Ethiopia to adopt Zahara. He wanted to adopt Zahara 4-5 months after his separation in Mar 2005. just couldn’t put his name on the documents just yet. However, he was officially investigated by the Ethiopian government. wow.

got to get ready for work

If you guys think that FilmThreat = Hollywood, you’re very naive and obviously no nothing about the industry.

Is it me or did the Ethiopian source just out Brad’s status in the adoption of Zahara – Brad and Angelina jointly adopted Zahara – by saying he was officially investigated by the Ethiopian government as though he would be on the adoption papers. wow.

The whole matter about adoption should be private. It does not matter whether it be Angie or someone non famous. I feel for this family and I feel for the jolie-pitts. In Touch Magazine has sunk very low, this info whether true or not, should not be for public consumption. I am happy that zee is alive and has a family, however I think alot poor people get taken advantage of. If the grandmother/mother is telling the truth then they are victims also. Victims of their poverty.

_____________________________________________

See, you’re thinking that’s how Zahara is going to think and react when you like me don’t know if that’s going to be the case. Angie has said she talks to Maddox about his being adopted and I would think she tells him everything about where he came from. If she does that with Maddox, I’m sure she’ll do the same with Pax and Zee and any other adopted child they may have. I’m also pretty sure that Brad and Angie will take Zee to Ethiopia to see where she came from and maybe start a project there, the way they’ve done with Maddox.

observation deck @ 11/15/2007 at 5:28 pm

it came to my observation that when The Departed aired the other night, the first name on the end credits as executive producers was Brad Pitt.

I don’t remember this when the movie came out. I thought he was third. I’m sure I would have remembered because I jumped at that first credit when I saw it on tv but don’t remember it in the movies. I knew he was one of the producers but not the first name.

Anyway that Oscar winning film is the reason he’s getting so many projects greenlit.

All I am going to say is that…someone people at Outttouch must be soooo angry at Angelina like she did something to her personally…to fly over to Africa, pay people to find information about the grandmother who probably live in a remote vilage ro somewhere not too easly accessible…

just to pay her for a story in next week tabloids.

Talk about people who have lost it upstairs.

there is this man from outa touch that they always invite on tv,he hates angie,i was watching court tv and they were talking about celebs and media control,he was so mean,even the other guest that was invited told him that he was wrong

vickifromtexas @ 11/15/2007 at 5:35 pm

anyone can see angelina is an incredible person, she has a big heart, she puts her money and time where her mouth is. i think the media panders to the small minded individuals who are jealous of angelina. how sad it is when so many women could be supporting a strong, empathetic, proactive woman but they are being petty and jealous instead.

I love Just Jared @ 11/15/2007 at 5:36 pm

In Touch is absolutely repulsive.

280 guli:thanks for the video.

If you all want to do something about the tabloids, please bring it to the attention of New York State’s Attorney General since the publishing is in NY. This Attorney General has been victim to tabloids himself so you have a sympathetic ear.

Other than that, let’s move on never to discuss these things again.

158 Estelle

I was going to say the exact same thing. In some countries they do sell their children. But Angie and Brad adopted a child and started supporting the family can you imagine the uproar? They would surely be accused of baby buying, or worse. I am amazed at how others can suggest what BP/AJ should do. And yet I wonder about their charitable/humanitarian donations and efforts. Peace.

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

All I have to say is life isn’t black and white and it’s shame that you are refusing to see the shades of gray.

Angie has done a great job so far with all her children and it’s not our place to question how, what, when, and where the children are concern.

I hope no one questions every move you make, how you raise your children (if you have any), where you live, where you travel, what type of job you should take, etc. We don’t like it when big brother goes sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong — so why should you and others want to micro manage Angie’s life?

who the hell are these fanatics. Why they sound same , even they are quoting the same way just “*” replaced with ~ and _ . Get a life los ers. Let the stars be what they are .. don’t hound after them and their pictures 24/7, because of ppl like you paparazzi s are on their face always.. imagine what kind of damage it can do to young kids… and god forbid if they turn out whac ko as Britney .. it’s going to be on you lo on s .

Looking at the birthdays, it goes: Zee, Shi, Mom, Mad, Pax, Dad.
Older sis, younger sis, female parent in the first half of the year, and older bro, younger bro, male parent in the second half.

Once they get Angie’s name on a list, they hope they will be talked about. This is getting old and we should stop paying attention to all these lies except where we want to do something positive about it like writing to people who can stop these lies.

Tabloids are desperate even to the extent of including Z’s adoption.What happen to the real journalism? I guess, we have to stop buying tabloids that spread lies about others specially about Brad & Angie’s family. They really have to do something about these tabloids, at least People Magazine when they are wrong they have the nerve to admit & correct their mistakes. God bless the Jolie-Pitt’s.

334/AJ in the making

I read in some articles that she just travel by herself with a back-pack as luggage to go to these troubled countries as an Ambassador. The UN think or she thinks it would be safer to travel this way. It is secretly done, and when they think she’s safe that’s the time a UN reporter send the news and pictures all over the world about her trip.

We haven’t seen the children in awhile. I’m glad that they’ve been away from the stalkerazzi. Some old pictures, we’ve seen most of these already and apologies as they are watermarked. I log in at Splash as a guest.

Shiloh

http://www.splashnews.com/AssetRoot2/Images/zooms/00000000179/spl4392_001.bro

Thanks for the thread Just Jared and the information listed. The article written by AJ was very informative and compassionate.
AJ is a major star. Tabs and obscure websites use her to get hits. The negative the article, the more hits it generates by haters and envious people looking for something to hate her for or libel her. It is a simple fact. Use BP or AJ name in your article and your web site will see an increase in hits.

Whether written with a snarky tone, outright lies or even positive information, BP and AJ are good business for an obscure website, tab or blog. AJ is helping in the way she knows how. It is easy to sit behind a desk and not get involve. It is easy to hate those that take chances and risks to help others. The good thing about AJ is that she knows she has critics. However, this does not stop her from living her life and performing her UN duties.

The fact is AJ is a well-respected UN Ambassador; writer for influential journals; a well-regarded actress; a devoted Mother and partner. These facts cannot be taken away from her, no matter the list hot or cold. However, it is funny how trolls/haters get such glee out of these lists. Best wishes to BAMPZS and peace to all. Thanks for all the updates Just Jared.

Thanks for the thread Just Jared and the information listed. The article written by AJ was very informative and compassionate.
AJ is a major star. Tabs and obscure websites use her to get hits. The negative the article, the more hits it generates by haters and envious people looking for something to hate her for or libel her. It is a simple fact. Use BP or AJ name in your article and your web site will see an increase in hits.

Whether written with a snarky tone, outright lies or even positive information, BP and AJ are good business for an obscure website, tab or blog. AJ is helping in the way she knows how. It is easy to sit behind a desk and not get involve. It is easy to hate those that take chances and risks to help others. The good thing about AJ is that she knows she has critics. However, this does not stop her from living her life and performing her UN duties.

The fact is AJ is a well-respected UN Ambassador; writer for influential journals; a well-regarded actress; a devoted Mother and partner. These facts cannot be taken away from her, no matter the list hot or cold. However, it is funny how trolls/haters get such glee out of these lists. Best wishes to BAMPZS and peace to all. Thanks for all the updates Just Jared.

In the middle.

Some are questioning Angie’s right or ability to write for the Economist. Angie has never described herself as an intellectual or an academic. But she has been described, by others, as a quality communicator. There are different ways to communicate and all are valid if the message one is trying to convey is understood and received. Abstract and obtuse verbage is not neccesarily a sign of good communicating skills. Ronald Reagan, possibly one of the least intellectual American presidents in recent times, was none the less considered a “great communictor.”
Angie’s mission was to write an article describing what she saw, felt, smelled, and knew about a situation that is killing thousands of people. And that she did. C. Rice is an intellectual and an academic who is not a great communicator. There is no warmth in her words. No sense that she has touched or felt any of the things she is talking about. Maybe Angie could have enlisted someone to help her with writing her piece. But then she wouldn’t be Angie. Her piece will rise or fall on her merits. You write as you speak. And Angie is straight forward and to the point person. The horror of murders, rapes, mutilation should not be abstracted or discussed in cold academic rhetoric.

Those who really want to know the sounds of the pain and suffering of the people of Darfur will appreciate Angie’s piece. Those who want to know but don’t need the emotional connection will select something else. Angie doesn’t position herself to be anything other than what she is, a human person trying to help other human persons. And for that effort we should all be thankful. Peace

my last word b-4 i passed out!f!ck you assniston!

movie fan @ 11/15/2007 at 7:15 pm

Angie told some TV entertainment show that her friends told her about the rumors regarding her PREGNANCY for a good laugh, not the week in and week out hate-filled rumors, or stupid made up stuff from some “insider”.
She doesn’t pay a d*amn bit of attention to that crap, and neither should anyone else with half a brain or a decent life to live.

Poor Sambo, every time you open your yap, in goes your foot. You don’t give a damn for Z and you never did. You would have been delighted if she’d died of AIDS. So don’t come in here spreading your fake concern for her welfare, because you don’t have any.

You have a genius for winding up with egg all over your face. Hope you choke on that crow, honey. Your misery = our joy.

110 sbc : 11/15/2007 at 3:18 pm

The Jolie-Pitts owe Z’s birth family absolutely nothing. They unloaded her at the orphanage when she was desperately sick because they could no longer care for her. At that point Z became a ward of the Ethiopian government until the J-Ps adopted her.

I can feel some sympathy for Z’s birth family who are desperately poor and are ripe for manipulation by the tabloids. My contempt is reserved for the tabloids themselves and the trolls who believe everything they print.

Don’t quite understand your guys excitment over bewolf. The success of this movie has nothing to do with angelina. She is in it for 6 minutes.
************************************************

But if the movie bombed, you’d say it bombed because of Angelina, wouldn’t you, you psycho little shít?

TABLOIDS AND ITS DIRTY GAME.

I LOVE ANGIE AND ALL GOOD THINGS THAT SHE DOES.
ZAHARA NOW HAS A NICE FAMILY.

pity choice award!idjoke!

my 394, I did not mean to post it, but it is too fast, It is from Laney site.

how come the children are sooo hidden from cameras now. I really would like to see one or two pictures of the kiddies.

Funny that Jolie talks about justice. Is she expecting to be held accountable for her moral crimes?
********************************************

Who the hell do you think you are, you sanctimonious bítch? She fell in love with a man who no longer loved his wife and whose marriage had been dead for at least a year. “Moral crimes” my ass. Start counting all the guys X has slept with — if you can count that high. Wasn’t she the one who said that in order to succeed in Hollywood you have to be fuckable?

Two questions:

1) What is the Frigid List?

2) Why should anyone give a damn about who’s on it?

=========

ITAWU !!! that poll was another racist,biased poll. they don’t even research before commenting, It’s well known Angie was the only A list without a publicist, she had stated that she travel along probably with one body guard plus her bagpack in every UN mission. I read it somewhere , stated by the UN official they were amazed on her first UN mission, she came along without any entourage,.In fact, Perez Hilton saw her alone at the airport while on her way to Darfur last year.
One thing I admired and love Angelina, despite all this continue biased critic, false report, they never stop her passionate toward charity work. its’ been 6 yrs going to 7 yrs, aside from Bono, I’ve never seen an actors or actresses stood that long on their causes.

Does anyone seriously beloeve that AJ, and not a professional ghost writer, wrote this article? Come on; she can barely string together an intelligent sentence when she’s interviewed!

confusion @ 11/15/2007 at 8:21 pm

199- kristy- this isn’t a church, you bible thumper! 1.99 sure describes you cheap trick!! Guli, thanks for the fun article. Brad sure thinks she’s yummy, he eats her up every night! Lol… Anustin, holla if you’re still on! Lol

Good for you, Bill! Just watched a segment of Bill O’Reilly. He had a guy named Tom something on from In Touch Magazine, smarmily suggesting (under the guise of concern) that Angelina has an obligation to give money to Z’s family or give her back! Jerk! Lowlife! Bill O’Reilly flat out rejected every argument and point this man tried to shill. He put his hand up literally to his face and said he was wrong, the decision has to be what is best for the child, that Jolie is a proven humanitarian who does what she says and is very kind, and would not let the guy continue. Yeah, Bill! By the way, still no proof these supposed family people are who they say they are. Sheesh.

I see ShitzySpamGal is back to posting under an old favorite. Anybody else wonder when this chick is going to fall off a cliff or get run over by a bus? Or is that just me?

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

shitzy is as low a person can get however I don’t wish her ill.

under her 345 different usernames she screams karma, but I think deep down she knows that her existence is indeed her karma, and that’s what her real problem is.
life is suffering for her on a daily basis.

that’s much worse than falling off a cliff.

After all is said & done, Brad & Angie are still on top of their mountain. I just can’t understand why some people wants to bring them down. Tabloids lies & gossips even to the expense of who ever get hurts, they don’t care, they are after the mighty $s. Shame on you tabloids, it’s time for you to clean up your act. Please leave the Jolie -Pitt’s alone, they are happy as a family. I appreciate People Magazine having admitted their mistakes & get some correction on their write ups, that’s what journalism is all about, it should be honest & clean. No lies please.

Alexanderina @ 11/15/2007 at 8:35 pm

Thank you Jared for the new thread. WAY TO GO ANGIE, you are truly an amazing and incredible woman, and definitely in a league of your own. I am so proud of you and so glad to be a fan of yours.

i love angelina jolie.
she’s gorgeous, and seems lovely.

i give her a 10.

Wow!
After reading her article I felt really, for lack of a better word, AWAKE.
She put it so simply but so honestly that it makes me want to jump and if I only have to power to do it myself, go over there seek justice personally.
There’s so much emotion going through me right now since I had just finished reading the article. I know the feeling of being oppressed all too well. And truly, the overwhelming emotion and pride that you feel when you feel helpless about your situation can sometimes be very unbearable.
I’m very happy to see a woman courageous enough to give voice for these refugees. Like her or not she is making a VERY BIG STATEMENT that needs to be said because the truth is, again, whether you like it or not, millions upon millions of people actually stand straight upright when she speaks.

Jolie-Pitts rock!

OMG THAT SLEAZEBALL TOM O’NEILL WAS ON THE O’REILLY REPORT TALKING ABOUT HIS MADE UP ADOPTION STORY. YOU COULD SEE THE VENOM IN HIM AS HE WAS DESCRIBING THIS WHOLE “STORY”. BILL O’REILLY SEMELLED A RAT AND TOLD HIM THAT HE’S ON THE SIDE OF JOLIE IN THIS CASE (IF THIS CASE WERE REAL)

People this is the honest truth, no lie. Last night I had a dream that Bill O’rielly had Angie on his show and he was defending her, and praising her for her humanitarian work and adopting her children. Mygawd, I don’t know why I had this dream. Now someone just posted that he did defend Angie. But she was not on the show. Peace

hey fans just now on bill o”reilly on the fox net work their was a guy from a magazine i think like maybe a tabloid was talking about angelina and zahara he was trying like a put down but bill o”reilly said he knew about angelina and he beleved her.did anyone see it?

____________________________________________________

Thank you for proving (as if we needed any more proof) that kool-aid imbibition addles the brain. Here’s a thought – try accessing other sources of information besides trashloids and gossip sites. Believe it or not, you’ll actually learn a fact or two.

Notice how smart BAMPZS fans are? There’s a reason for that. Here’s an assignment for you: try to figure out why BAMPZS fans, in general, are so smart, and see what relation, if any, that fact has to do with their contempt for trashloids and gossip sites.

Hey BAMPZS peeps! Holla!
Listen up, we know that a torrent of B&A good news inevitably results in a frenzy of hateration. We also know that sustained, elevated levels of frustration, anger, hatred, envy, jealousy and other stressors (‘A’), inevitably results in some sick sh*t (‘B’).

So lets just hope that B follows A for all the haterz, tabby writers and other assorted lowlifes.

Thank you Jared for posting the Economist article. It is very well written and I, like Angie, hope that one day the violence in that part of the world will cease.
Thank you, too for the Reuters article debunking the rags’ claim about Zahara’s adoption. Either those rags are desperate for sales or somebody is paying them to print all those lies.

HE WANTS THE WORLD TO BELIEVE THAT A RAG COSTING 99 CENTS SENT SOMEONE TO ETHIOPIA TO COVER THIS STORY. AND WHY HER OF ALL PEOPLE?

434 Bill Oreilly is so phony

Wrong. Oreilly does not like the UN and feels that Angelina is throwing away her money by supporting them. But since Oreilly had his people research Angelina about giving 1/3 of her money to charity and found she was telling the truth, Oreilly has been very fair toward Angelina.

TOP STORY
‘Beowulf’ enters box office battle
Paramount film set for 740 3-D screens

By Pamela McClintock, Dave McNary

In the widest domestic rollout of a digital 3-D film to date, Paramount will unspool Robert Zemeckis’ big-budget “Beowulf” on roughly 740 3-D screens when it opens the violent animated epic in a total of 3,164 theaters this weekend. Film began playing in some locations Thursday evening.
“Beowulf,” drawn from the 9th-century epic poem, also is getting an aggressive foreign day-and-date release.

Hollywood studios are investing heavily in 3-D releases, although there are still a limited number of screens equipped with the needed technology. That means a movie like “Beowulf” will still play mostly on traditional 2-D screens.

The weekend’s other wide release is Fox Walden’s G-rated family fantasy title “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium,” starring Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman and Jason Bateman. Film was written and directed by “Stranger Than Fiction” scribe Zach Helm in his feature directorial debut.

New Line opens filmmaker Mike Newell’s “Love in the Time of Cholera” in 852 theaters. Based on the acclaimed book by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and adapted by Ronald Harwood, film toplines Javier Bardem.

Forecasters say “Beowulf,” which cost $150 million to produce and was largely financed by Steve Bing’s Shangri-La Entertainment, has a strong shot at the weekend crown, placing the box office haul at somewhere between $20 million and $25 million.

Shangri-La put up roughly $100 million of the film’s budget, with Par making up the difference. Warner Bros. is a distribution partner on the film, and is releasing the pic internationally.

While “Beowulf” is the biggest test yet of digital 3-D, the first movies that will truly live or die on this technology are James Cameron’s “Avatar” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Monsters. vs. Aliens,” both of which bow in 2009, when there are predicted to be many more 3-D screens.

“Beowulf,” rated PG-13, employs the same motion-capture technology Zemeckis used in making “The Polar Express.” Pic’s ensemble voice cast includes Ray Winstone, Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich and Robin Wright Penn.

While Par, Shangri-La and Warners are hoping to appeal to the same aud that made Warners’ “300″ a hit, they say “Beowulf” has to overcome the challenge of being an animated film meant for older auds, and not kids.

To that end, they are leveraging the 3-D factor in selling the film. Of the 741 3-D screens it will play on, 84 will be Imax 3-D screens.

After “Beowulf,” holdovers “American Gangster” and family toon “Bee Movie” should be strong contenders as they enter their third frames, battling it out with “Wonder Emporium,” which tells the story of a magic toy shop left by the owner to his assistant.

“Cholera” isn’t expected to be a strong player.

“Bee Movie,” voiced by Jerry Seinfeld, pulled off a rare coup last weekend when it came in No. 1 in its second weekend after debuting one week earlier at No. 2, behind Universal’s “Gangster.” Through Wednesday, “Gangster,” toplining Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, had grossed $86.3 million domestically, while “Bee” had grossed $77.8 million, according to Rentrak.

Among limited releases, it will be another busy weekend at the domestic box office. Paramount Vantage opens Noah Baumbach’s Nicole Kidman-Jack Black-Jennifer Jason Leigh starrer “Margot at the Wedding” in two theaters in New York.

Samuel Goldwyn Films/IDP releases Richard Kelly’s long-gestating doomsdayer “Southland Tales” in 63 locations. Pic, whose cast includes Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, marks Kelly’s follow-up to cult hit “Donnie Darko.”

Magnolia debuts Brian De Palma’s brutal Iraq war drama “Redacted” in 14 theaters in key markets. Film, about a young Iraqi girl who is raped and killed by U.S. forces, won De Palma the Silver Lion directing award at the 2007 Venice Film Fest.

First Look Films opens Gregg Araki’s “Smiley Face” in one theater in Los Angeles. Regent debuts Icelandic film “Eleven Men Out” in one theater.

On the foreign front, “Beowulf” is poised to lead the pack with Warner Bros. taking the fantasy actioner into Germany, Italy, South Korea, the U.K. and much of Southeast Asia.

International audiences have a proven track record of responding to actioners out of the past. Warner saw significant success earlier this year with $245 million — 54% of its worldwide total of $456 million.

The biggest competition for the top foreign slot will come from U’s “American Gangster,” which launches in France, Germany and the U.K. after opening in a smattering of small markets during the past two weekends. First-day French grosses hit $530,000 on Wednesday.

Universal is also taking “The Bourne Ultimatum” into China, its final foreign market, with over $193 million already banked overseas.

And it’s launching “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” in Australia and Russia to build on its $15.7 million foreign gross — already matching domestic perf — with $7.5 million from the U.K. and $5.7 million from Italy.

I watch the Oreilly Factor. I emailed Bill after watching it and I sent him the Rueters article on the matter. I told him that In touch is a tabloid. Bill did defend Angelina. I hope that if he covers it again that he calls In touch on their lies. He definately did not come accross as believing that alleged story and thought the family was trying to extort money. Of course we all believe that In Touch is making this all up.

HE ALSO SAID THAT THIS WAS AN OBVIOUS CASE OF THESE PEOPLE WANTING MONEY (AS IF THIS STORY WAS TRUE TO BEGIN WITH) AND THAT TOM O’NEILL JUST BRUSHED IT OFF LIKE HE DIDN’T EVEN THINK THAT WAS POSSIBLE. OMG. POOR BILL O’REILLY GOT SUCKED INTO THIS HOAX OF A STORY. OMG NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD I HAVE SAID POOR BILL O”REILLY LMAO.

328- confusion – you should learn to write, period. I understood none of that. If it’s too complicated for you to get, learn to read while you’re at it. Like to read cartoon picture books, dumb@ss?

The grandmother brought three witnesses to court who testified that Zahara’s mother had died and that her father was unknown … The court also investigated the social status of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt before approving the adoption. [The adoption was] legal and irrevocable. [The controversy is media hype by unethical journalists exploiting the poverty of the grandmother.”]

[In other words, reporters paid the relatives to raise the dispute.]
========

Shame on the tabloid media, putting shame on American press. and Is this is what we call “freedom of speech” , Free press ???? Yeah, free press, advocate by the West to the impoverish third world nations.
Using money, bribing anyone just to have a news, that’s sad.
Ironically, America with a literacy rate of >90%, there are still peoples believing all those lies and hype.

434 Bill Oreilly is so phony

Wrong. Oreilly does not like the UN and feels that Angelina is throwing away her money by supporting them. But since Oreilly had his people research Angelina about giving 1/3 of her money to charity and found she was telling the truth, Oreilly has been very fair toward Angelina.

As I said he ‘USED TO DOG AJ’!!!READ WOMAN!! OReily likes what ever flavor of the month that’s popular, with his pompous azz.
He now thinks he can sway AJ by saying nice things about her…
BIG FREAK IN deal., He is not even in AJ’S CLASS..I STILL SAY HE is a LOSER WHO IS PHONY & SO FULL OF HIMSELF..
AND his old tab show was INSIDE EDITION..HE WAS MR. RAG MAG ON TV.,HIMSELF.

This lsst time I won’t shout. Bill O’Reilly also confronted that sleazeball by saying he did a backgound check on Angelina (as if she’s not just an actress doing some humanitarian work) He told that guy that she came up clean. The guy was like…..well…..

Now I know why Brad said that “Angie is a GOOD EGG”.She’s BEAUTY and BRAIN with a MIGHTY HEART. What a perfect combination.

Hooray Bill o’Reilly, you made Brangelina fans really feel so good about defending Angie to that tabloid guy. Truth eventually comes out. More power to you & to the Jolie-Pitt.

Never speak ill of Brad’s woman,he remembers,even if O’Reily is back peddling now.

Why did O’Reily even covered this story?? He could of let that stupid sh*t die out. No he wanted to sensationalize it, then pretends to defend Angelina -Please O’Reily is playing da game.

Nothing to feel sorry about with O’Reily, he knows just what he’s doing. SO far Angelina and Brad are not falling for his act.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!! I am quoting you IDIOT TROLL..

Two people to stay away from come awards season if Brad & Angelina go.
Avoid Ryan Seacrest and Tom O’Neill from InTouch. I’ve seen this guy be the go to person during awards season so expect no love coming out of his mouth regarding nominations for Angelina. He’s also usually on the red carpet doing interviews so please Cindy, they must be avoided like the plague on the red carpet.

OReilly is a right wing nutcaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! majority of Republicans are nutsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!

BTW ‘wrong’ is in disguise, a poserrrrr.

LMAO at guli reposting that dumb dumb troll confusion.

I’m very happy about Bill taking up for angie,please forgive all my mispelled words.good night and GOD BLESS i am glad someone else saw w this and could explain it better.love jolie pitts.

Jolie will pay for her evil deeds.
She and all those who turned a blind eye.

Tom O’Neill used to analyze for E! . I don’t know if he still does since I quit watching E! years ago. I hope Brad?angelina avoid E!. They are pathetic.

what the hell does this have to do with Brad? he is old news nobody even talks about his lame ass unless it has something to do with Ange. Ange is talked about constantly without brad being mentioned.

#394: She shouldn’t do that! Her face is like that of Lurch from the Addams Family and takes up half of their bodies.

You have to feel for the parents giving away their children in countries with such poverty (whether they claim the parents are deceased or not). They love their children but cannot feed them so eventually they will die. The families believe an orphanage is the best place to keep their child alive.

Sure brangelina did a good thing by adopting but please grieve for the poor.

Brad is very much current. Without AMH no one would be talking about Angelina. Check yourself crackho.

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

So, you are saying that anyone that adopts should support the bio family?

Or is it only Angie that has to do this?

As I have said before clean your own house and let Angie tend to hers. You know live and let live!

btw are you a lawyer? Do you run an adoption agency? Do you understand or know the laws that governs adoptions? Just asking these questions since you set yourself up as an expert on the matter.

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

Excellent points Lady G. So in turn, does that mean, anyone who adopts a child and is better off than the biological parents, should then financially support the biological parents? Or should this illogical rule only apply to AJ? I’m tired of people saying AJ’s adooptions have been fast tracked. We really are not aware of when the applications took place. And once you’ve been approved to adopt, the process would logically be in less time for the process in further adoptions. And if Dr. Jane Aronson (who is a recognized expert in international adoptions) is supportive of the adoptions, why is this even being questioned?

Oh, that’s right, AJ has a colorful past. Since she is the only person
in the world who has a past and began a relationshiip with a man who was legally separated, she should be crucified.LOL. I’ve seen many people on sites talk about their love for Johnny Depp. He’s acknowledged trying and having an abuse of many drugs in his past. He was a self-cutter. He had difficulties with the law. He changed his life and became a family man.

When the articles came out from the PSYCHOtherapists about how the children would decide not to invest in friendshiips because they would be moving on………….I had to laugh. Children do no think about “investing” in friendships. From 2-5 they have parallel friendships. They play along side with someone. Most kids want to have someone to play with and have their parents present in their lives, regardless of where they are living. But, let’s cite a source who is a p*rn addict expert or someone who isn’t recognized as an expert in the field and has no familiarity on personal level with the family as a qualifier for the lame gossip/opionion you want to spew. And there will be people who buy it because they want it to be true and validate their opinion that this particular couple are bad.

Sorry for the long post. But the tabloids/garbage sites need to move on and stop feeding the masses who want to gobble this crap up.

I hope this doesn’t get moderated, but this is a link to an article about the downside of unhealthy gossip.
http://www.naturalhealthweb.com/articles/parva1.html

If it is moderated, the article is called the Downside of Unhealthy Gossip by Dr. Sanjay Parva. He’s supposed to be an expert in Ayurveda, not online p*rn addiction.

Be positive!!!!!!!

471 SR : 11/15/2007 at 9:23 pm

In the Bible, Koran,and Torah, it is said that you are closer to the Almighty when you adopt a child as your own. It was viewed highly thousands of years ago and is as common today as having a child thru pregnancy. Surrogacy & invitro are the more unusual methods of having a child.

77 sbc : 11/15/2007 at 2:53 pm
Angelina should keep the baby. It is hers legally. One question though: why is Zahara’s grandmother in poverty? Why don’t Brad and Angelina financially support her? Just like David Banda’s father. How can celebrities adopt poor kids and live with the fact that tehir kin is living in poverty? This is the tricky part of adoption. Angelina should support the grandmother. It is Zahara’s bloodline.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

First, has anyone truly established she is TRULY the grandmother? I mean, according to the tablie, Z’s biological mother has been miraculously RESURRECTED and aged from 18 to 24 in 2.5 years. Real life time lines obviously don’t apply in the tablie fiction world. Perhaps Brad and Angelina are working out whether this woman is really Z’s biological grandma. However, even if this woman were Z’s biological grandma, rushing into giving financial aid to Z’s grandma may not be wise. This leads me to my second point:

Second, In an ideal world, perhaps, I mightagree with you about giving financial support to Z’s grandma and her aunts and uncles.

The problem is: we don’t live in an ideal world. It never stops at one person or even the immediate family. Because as soon as Z’s grandma (assuming she REALLY IS Z’s grandma) gets some money, the entire extended family, 12th cousins twice removed will show up and ask for a loan, will ask for money. Some one is sick and needs to go to hospital. Someone else needs a loan to buy chickens or seeds. Someone needs to go to high school.

Of course, each of these persons deserve help. The problem is, where do you or I or Angelina or Brad draw the line and say, enough is enough?? They didn’t sign up to be Mother Theresa or take any vows of poverty.

Because you see, if the justification used to give someone money is BLOOD LINES, then at some level, BLOOD goes back a long long way, especially in agrarian communities such as Ethiopia. Entire villages in an extended area may be BLOOD related. In China, there are tens of thousands of villages where everyone there have the same surname, all BLOOD related. The men folk get women from other villages around the surronding countryside to marry into the village. The daughters of these CLAN villages marry out. (The chinese have strict customs and traditions against consanguinity).

Third Point: So, if there are many BLOOD relatives, supporting just Grandma and Z’s biological family could cause problems for the biological family too. Relationships in small communities have a certain balance to it. If you support one without the other you disturb this balance and can cause a lot of grief all round.

I was going to sponsor a child get an education. But I did some reading and decided against it because the opinion was leaning towards the fact that when 1 child in the family or village gets sponsored and the others don’t, will cause all sorts of divisions and HARD FEELINGS against the one favoured child. The same would occur if you support just Z’s biological family vs the rest of the village or community.

A FOURTH POINT is if you pay the biological family, it raises the whole issue of whether you are “buying” a child. When Pax was adopted, there were allegations in the tablies that Brad and Angelina were going to make a substantial donation to the orphanage ($2.0M??) and allegations of child buying erupted. So, you see, you are damn if you do and damn if you don’t. Imagine if Brad and Angelina were to pay the adoptees biological family. Imagine if Brad and Angelina were to pay Pax’s family. What questions would be raised?? Which leads me to point no. 5.

POINT NO. 5 If you are willing to support the entire biological family, why not just support the family of origin to keep the child? Why adopt the child to begin with because of course, a child is better off with the family of origin, so why not support the child’s family to keep the child.

To me, there is no “of course” about this question at all. The subtleties will need close examination. Let me say at the very outset, that NOT ALL CHILDREN PLACED IN ORPHANAGES ARE UNWANTED.

But, I’m happy to go out on a limb to say, if a child is placed in an orphanage, we should START WITH THE PRESUMPTION that this child is UNWANTED until the biological family can prove otherwise beyond reasonable doubt.

I come with this presumption because not every poor parent, mother etc give their children to orphanages. Many DON’T. Many poor parents, poor families HANG ON TO THEIR CHILDREN.

So I’m going to assume, until proven otherwise, that Z was UNWANTED. She has it seems, aunts and even, may be, a biological mother who now wants to meet with Z. But I must ask, how hard did they try to give financial support to Z when she was a wee babe? Its up to the biological family to prove it.

Tricked?? PUHLEEZZE. In ETHIOPIA, where orphanages are overflowing because there are MILLIONS of GENUINE aids orphans where both parents have DIED due to aids?? I don’t think the orphanage tricked anyone into giving up their baby. The orphanage wasn’t to know which baby might be adopted by a rich and famous couple. The orphanage didn’t even have the resources to give the children basic medical care which is how Z and other babies had salmonella. Sorry, I don’t buy the “tricked” story at ALL..

And Take Pax as another example. Pax apparently has an extended family who didn’t bother to come and see him once during his entire time in the orphanage. According to adoption records, Pax was up for adoption because NONE of his biological family bothered to visit him at the orphange, unlike OTHER CHILDREN in the orphanage who got visits from parent,s grandparents and extended family etc. but NOT PAX. UNWANTED?? You bet. Worst then being poor is being UNWANTED.

I’ve seen very poor families who hang on to their children, come what may. I’ve seen better off families give up their UNWANTED children – in a chinese community, – usually the daughters. That’s still happening in China today. And these little girls languish in orphanages, unwanted by the family of origin AND by the rest of the Chinese community. In a china of the ONE CHILD POLICY, why are chinese baby girls available for international adoption???? China isn’t poor like africa is poor. Baby girls handed up for adoption aren’t necessarily given up because the family is starving, homeless and desparate. They just don’t want the child.

So, would giving money to the biological family really have allowed the child to be loved in the family of origin or just seen as a little money pot??

Last Point: If all these sorts of financial demands are made on adoptors of children, where do you draw a line? If you are celebrity, DON’T ADOPT because you are going to get squeeze coz everyone knows your name? if you are rich but anonymous, that’s OK, or should we say, if you are RICH your should pay – pay how much? pay to whom?? And what is rich anyway. If you live in the US, is having a net worth of $1.0m rich?? Would you end up discouraging adoptions of children who desparately need a home because people don’t want to adopt the family, just the child?

Consider the US and why people choose to adopt outside the US. This is in part because the biological family can ask the child back anytime within 2 years. If a little american baby is adopted by a wealthy adoptive family, and the biological parents can effectively blackmail the adoptive family. So, whilst the biological family is protected, what has ended happening is that many American citizens CHOOSE to adopt overseas and there are CHILDREN in the US in orphanages longing for a good home.

Adoption is a CAN OF WORMS when you start to incorporate the broader extended family who gave the child up for adoption.

To me, the best approach is the recommended approach by true adoption advocates:

(a) when you adopt a child, you adopt the child, not the entire family.

(b) if you have the means, you donate or undertake projects to benefit the entire community or country of your adopted child. That’s up to the individual adoptive family.

© you introduce the child to its culture. One day, when she is old enough, she may even be introduced to her family of origin.

What Brad, Angelina and many many other are doing to undertake projects to support the entire community is the right thing to do.

I read Angie’s book ” Notes From My Travels”, fans, you should read it. It is an eye opening to other parts of the world specially the flights of refugees.

Bill leave our Angie Alone sic @ 11/15/2007 at 9:42 pm

As you may remember, Bill O’Reilly was called out for his despicable statements about teenager Shawn Hornbeck, who had been kidnapped and molested for years. Shawn’s abductor was sentenced to life in prison this past Monday, and on Countdown, Keith Olbermann spoke to Shawn’s parents, Pam and Craig Akers, about Shawn’s life since being rescued and their thoughts on Bill O’Reilly’s statement that Shawn enjoyed his time in captivity.

The Akers tells us that Shawn is doing very well and that they have set up The Shawn Hornbeck Foundation which is dedicated to the prevention of the abduction of children and the search for and rescue of lost, missing or abducted children. As BillO is hawking his new book for children, the Akers graciously tells us he owes their son an apology — in much nicer terms than we would have used:

Question: “…Let me ask you, both of you, have either of you or has Shawn received any kind apology from Bill O’Reilly or from anybody else who took this stance?”

Craig Akers: “No, we haven’t heard anything and Pam and I really don’t care about an apology for us, it’s not about us. We could care less one way or the other. It’s really Shawn that was hurt and Shawn is the one who deserves the apology.”

Good post Dina. Thanks.

confusion @ 11/15/2007 at 9:45 pm

If she writes it should make some sense. I read again and she would make good with lighter writing.

Do you know how many celebrities are adopted? A lot. How come the reporters don’t say here’s Nicole Ritchie, ADOPTED daughter of Lionel and Brenda Ritchie? Nicole was dumped by her drug addicted parents as a child so Lionel & his then wife Brenda adopted her. Her bio parents are not dead. Is there gonna be an investigation on his adoption of Nicole? Should she re establish her “bloodline” connection? Please. As far as I know when Nicole talks about her parents it’s Lionel & Brenda, not those other people.

What is with this guy Tom O’neil, he is always trying to find a way to bash Angelina, I remember when he was on showbiz tonight,he just went on and on about how AMH had bombed and it was because of all the tabloid press Angelina gets.Its one thing to give your opinion, but he seem to take delight in AMH’s B.O.,he was actually screaming it was a bomb. He’s just a complete A$$,IMHO.

All great points lylian….this one is so true and to the point.

A FOURTH POINT is if you pay the biological family, it raises the whole issue of whether you are “buying” a child. When Pax was adopted, there were allegations in the tablies that Brad and Angelina were going to make a substantial donation to the orphanage ($2.0M??) and allegations of child buying erupted. So, you see, you are damn if you do and damn if you don’t. Imagine if Brad and Angelina were to pay the adoptees biological family. Imagine if Brad and Angelina were to pay Pax’s family. What questions would be raised?? Which leads me to point no.

Hello HCE &real tita—well it has been an amusing week…
I don’t want to post it again, this is what I posted at JJB’s early today…..

I honestly don’t know how some people can buy these tabloids. It really boggles my mind. Just this week we had THREE lies and they were all proven to be LIES…

1-split pants-gate…oops! People had to retract that lie …

CORRECTION: PEOPLE.com’s Nov. 12 report on the London premiere of Beowulf inaccurately stated that Angelina Jolie’s pants split on the red carpet. This report was based on photos and newspaper reports showing what appeared to be a split seam. Jolie’s stylist says it was a zipper and the pants did not, in fact, split. She wore them home after the premiere. PEOPLE.com regrets the error.

2-L&S lie—Brad left Beowulf LA premiere after party with a blond and Angie went home alone……
“But later that night, with the cameras and reporters gone, the smiles faded. During the post-premiere party, “everyone was fawning over Angelina,” says an insider. “Brad was just standing around for most of the night. He looked like he was feeling neglected.”

Oops….There was NO POST PREMIERE PARTY

Proof #1

For an event of its size and attendance, preem was a bit unusual in that there was no after-party. But funds that would have gone for the fiesta were donated to Zemeckis’ alma mater, the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

http://www.variety.com/vstory/VR1117975549.html?categoryId=38&cs=1

Remember good post well thought out and informative. Peace

299 kearnie : 11/15/2007 at 5:24 pm – No, because they couldn’t jointly adopt; BUT they are saying that Brad LEGALLY adopted Zee and had to go thru what ever checks there was to go thru in order for him to adopt Zahara

To 485 Please ,that’s true. They dropped NR. as if she wasn’t their child. And NR was 3 or 4 yrs old. She loves Brenda and Lionel. Their her parents.

I don’t want to invest too much time laboring over tab chat and their insane stances, but Tom O and In Touch seem so damn proud of themselves, so assured and so smug. Reminds me of that cold-calculating b*tch Bonnie Fuller from Star. I came across a piece she wrote in the Huffington Post not too long ago, a couple of days ago actually where she made it a point to say that moms across America should be very proud of themselves, pat themselves on the back, feel guilt free, breathe a sigh of relief because they are not treating their children as horribly as Angelina is treating hers. How crazy is that? It’s brainwashing at its best. The poor and uneducated eat this stuff up. She talked about Angelina ‘schlepping’ her children around the globe. (She also threw in a jab about Angelina’s weight and how it works to intimidate other moms; mothers who are a ‘normal’ size 12 are made to feel inadequate and unable to measure up). It was a short segment and I will not post the link here. I’m not sure why I gave it the time of day really. For me at least, it’s no longer about money with some people like Bonnie. Her constant targeting of Angelina streams the lines of a personal vendetta (not sure why) or this compelling need to be in competition with Angelina and she is hell-bent on brainwashing others to feel as though they need to compete with Angelina too.

Thanks. I would like to say that I know certain words in my posts are not spelled with double i’s. Holding down keys too long I guess.

So many good posts on this thread. Congrats.

Unless people see proof of an adoption by Brad, it didn’t happen. Unless they see AJ’s tax returns, her donations are questioned. Unless they see (in their minds) she’s a good mother and loves her kids, for reasons other that PR, she is questioned.

But, there is no proof that anything happened prior to the official separation (most people do not announce they are officially going on a trial separation to work things out when their schedules have them separated as it is) except rumours, and yet, they will say they “know” something happened that was more than just emotional. I don’t know what happened and won’t pretend to have knowledge of what may or may not have happened. I know a marriage ended (like many do) and people went on with their lives (like many do).

i think this @ 11/15/2007 at 10:14 pm

bill oreilly has been desperate to get her on the show and has attacked her humanitarian efforts repeatedly, including injecting himself into her personal drama with her father.

God bless Angie and Brad those folks that doesn’t do anything to hurt someone God will punish them. And the media that publish new as well will get the same thing. This people that paid them
just to hurt Angie will go no where. The adoption is legal and Angie knows that.

Bless this family whatever they do!!!!!!

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19266006/site/newsweek/

Here is the one of the Q & A from msnbc.com. For a full transcript, please use the above URL.

Sean Smith is the senior writer for Newsweek. For his bio, please use the above link.

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.

Zahara’s birth mother is dead. Her birth father is too. Zee’s mommy is angie and her daddy is brad. It’s all she’ll ever know, no matter how much you mindless trolls rail against it. End of discussion.

Angie’s the mother of zahara this is a legal adoption of Brad and Angie. This is just a media tabloid of nonsense!!!!!

Bless Angie and Brad!!!!!!

This guy, Don Cheadle, we invited him on to talk about Darfur. He had a headache. His elbow hurt. He couldn’t do it, you know. And as you said, he’s got a movie out now, so he’s running around. I think Cheadle’s a phony. … And you know, I just don’t want these stars to be getting all this good publicity using people.

Finally! I’m the someone who cracks down on that vast racket of publicity-seekers trying to “use” the people in Darfur by calling attention to the fact that they’re being mass-murdered. Because there really are too many people talking about Darfur, really. (For his part, O’Reilly has uttered the word ‘Darfur’ just twice in the history of his show.)

O’Reilly also turned his crosshairs on Angelina Jolie, who since August 2001 has been the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. O’Reilly explained how he had once presented another celebrity U.N. ambassador “with a situation where he could have helped some very poor children here in New York City with just a short appearance. He declined. Now we have actress Angelina Jolie in a similar situation.”

“Similar situtation”? Angelina’s been neglecting very poor children? No, she just won’t appear on O’Reilly’s show:

Now we’ve invited Ms. Jolie on this program six times over the course of two and two and a half years that she’s held this U.N. position. She doesn’t come on. I can’t respect that. In fact, she does very, very little to publicize what she’s doing in the U.S. here in the United States.

She’s done a couple of MTV interviews, which is like doing nothing. She’s done an ABC morning show that nobody watches on the weekend. And very minor appearances.

As if this tirade wasn’t embarrasing enough, it turns out the Saturday and Sunday editions of ABC’s Good Morning America pulled 3.04 million and 2.35 million viewers respectively in January (the most recent numbers I could find). So far this month, O’Reilly has averaged 2.09 million viewers (and is free-falling).

Now that’s ridiculous.

______________

thanks QQQQ – thanks re: jointly adopt. The capitalized part of your comment above is what I was refering to in my post. That, Brad was deep deep into this adoption.

Interesting info indeed. less than 5 months after the separation and he was ready to be a father to a child. Talk about a deep commitment!

tino tonatini @ 11/15/2007 at 10:29 pm

the frigis list wich never heard of I am so suprise and this must be a joke…

LOS ANGELES – He’s not exactly a movie star. He doesn’t even play one
on TV. But President Bush nonetheless has been named the coldest
person in Hollywood.

The online magazine Film Threat placed Bush at the top of its “Frigid
50,” an annual ranking of the “least-powerful, least-inspiring and
least-intriguing people in Hollywood” in contrast to the “hot” lists
that celebrity magazines often compile.

Film Threat’s editors point out that Bush has been parodied in movies
like “Transformers” and “American Dreamz” and scrutinized in
documentaries such as “Sicko” and “No End in Sight.”

“With all due respect to Hollywood,” they wrote, “the mighty W is as
much a cinema celebrity as the next despotic tyrant.”

Coming in at No. 2 is someone who’s a perennial fixture on those lists
of the hot, sexy and powerful: Angelina Jolie.

“Traveling the Third World with a small army of stylists and
publicists, the one-time Lara Croft feels like an unholy mix of Mother
Teresa and Paris Hilton: Look at the poor, but make sure you get me in
my best light,” the magazine says. “Ironically, more people saw her in
Cambodia or Namibia than in `A Mighty Heart.’”

Also making the “Frigid 50″ are Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Hilary
Swank for their less-than-stellar film choices of late, and Jon Heder
who “hasn’t made a single good movie” in the three years since
“Napoleon Dynamite” made him a cult figure.

The “winners” in previous years include Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise and
Katie Holmes, Michael Moore and Freddie Prinze Jr.

Hey another feather on Ms. Jolie’s cap. She has been named among the top women making an impact today. Check out Salma Hayek as well, being named a top producer.

Women’s Impact Report
Angelina Jolie
Actress, mother, celebrity, humanitarian, mega-famous on all counts
By LAWRENCE CHRISTON

In our new-millennium media rush, clearly there’s been some redistricting going on in the hot-air vortex, where comedians are solicited for their worldviews and celebrity-mania flashes on appearance and leaves achievement in the dark.
Then there’s Angelina Jolie: actress, mother, celebrity, international humanitarian and mega-famous on all counts.

Now she’s done the thing everyone talks about but few achieve: She’s taken charge. She attends the World Economic Forum, donates a third of her salary to charity and in April, with Pitt, formed Global Action for Children, a D.C. lobby for funding AIDS orphan programs and education for children in refugee camps. She’s also been named Ambassador for the U.N. High Commission for Refugees.

“She’s absolutely serious,” former secretary of State Colin Powell told Newsweek. “Her work with refugees is not something to decorate herself. She studies the issues. … For her, it’s not about saving the world. It’s about saving kids.”

Miraculously, she’s held onto a sense of proportion. In “A Mighty Heart,” she could have made a star turn out of her portrayal of Mariane Pearl, the widow of journalist Daniel Pearl, slain by Jihadists in Pakistan. Instead, she deferred to Mariane’s cool passion and understated resolve, even on “The Charlie Rose Show,” when Jolie knew who the real star of this story was.

Other performers have worked for charity and international causes, but none in our wall-to-wall media age has done as well by doing good.

Vocation: Actress, human rights ambassador

Recent breakthrough: The leap from celebrity icon to international credibility as humanitarian spokeswoman and children’s rights advocate. Her role in “A Mighty Heart” also has Oscar wags predicting a best actress nom.

Role models: From the children of Tanzania’s Lugufu refugee camp (“They’re my heroes”) to, most recently, Mariane Pearl.

Mantra: “What the worst people in the world fear is justice.”

What’s next: Currently filming the thriller “Wanted” in Prague. Then a year off.

The article is excellent and probably every word of it is something Angie saw and thought but I don’t think she wrote it. There are far too many phrases she not only doesn’t use but wouldn’t use. It doesn’t matter—I love her and love what she does. It’s just looks like she probably had a ghost writer. Almost all famous people do. . .even famous speakers. . . and Presidents. Just wondered if anyone else had the same thought. It doesn’t read the way she talks. She’s a good speaker but she doesn’t use these kinds of words and phrases. Please . .I love Angie. This isn’t trashing her so don’t misread I’m just curious to know if anyone else had the same opinion.

Bill is a hero for callin Angie out.

the real tita @ 11/15/2007 at 10:50 pm

#411: Still can’t believe she wrote it? Haters should make up their minds…either she’s too elementary or smart enough to string words together to make sense to most people! If she can buy a ghost writer, she can also buy $5 words. Why stint on the money?

She writes from the heart and that is good enough for us, her admirers. You don’t have to read what she writes…read what you write and break your arm trying to pat yourself on the back. Who gives a sh*t?

502 kearnie : 11/15/2007 at 10:26 pm – Yes, he was committed but i was just stating that when he legally adopted Zee (the process started sometime after his liberation day) he had to go thru the same thing every other adoptive parent went thru. Also it shuts down Lies & Styless and Outa Touch B/S that Brad has not legally adopted Madd and Zee

from sean smith @ 11/15/2007 at 10:59 pm

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/19266006/site/newsweek/

This is part of a transcript, please use the above URL for the full transcript.

Sean Smith is the senior writer for Newsweek

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.

Bill is a hero for callin Angie out.

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

Sure, he’s calling her out for not appearing on his show and he’s confused MTV’s acronyms with CNN’s. But, he did do an investigation on her donations and found them to be true, so he does have some redeeming quality, right? And if you like him calling her out, you must find him credible enough to substantiate her donations.

Since he investigated her donations and announced she walks the walk, I’ll let him feel entitled to be frustrated she won’t go on his show.

G’Nite all…. just dropping by to add my two cents. I don’t have time to read the entire thread, so I appologize if this has already been said.
With that,I take issue with the presumption that the poor grandmother might be involved in this farce: If so, why would she appear in court with witnesses to verify that her daughter was indeed deceased?
So, we should believe that these rags which consistently print rubbish made up out of thin air, actually spent MONEY and TIME to travel to Ethiopia, seek out the surviving relatives of a poor deceased woman to pay them to say what they know to be a lie, to justify them printing it??? Pulease! They sat in their flea bitten chairs and did what they always do: THEY MADE IT UP! I doubt, very seriously, if any family member saw one red cent!

Brad and Angelina “know their truth” We should follow suit and IGNORE by Boycotting and illuminating (Thanks Jared!!) every instance of their lies. : )

Mellow out to a little something that I made to honor Angie’s loving heart.

A Certain Smile @ 11/15/2007 at 11:20 pm

Bottom line-No proof this so called grandma is genuine. This was not an open adoption. The grandma who put Zee up for adoption would not know who adopted her. angelina saw a book of the childrens pictures from teh orphanage. That is why she did not even know how sick Zee was when she went to pick her up. Agree w/ lylian about all her points on this issue.

Also, this essay level is quite in line w/ how Angelina speaks. She speaks as an educated woman. the editor probabnly proffread it but they do that for all the articles. Also, all types of people from varied backgrounds write for the economist. Not unusual for a UN High commission for Refugees ambassador to be asked to relate her first hand account. that is the part the troll conveiently leaves out. she wrote from her actual experience of what the peole she met said to her and others and what they wanted to see.

Very well said Angelina – very well said.

Shu t up loons. Bill will be fair and balance with the poptart. I may be a troll but I read comments on here that supports Bill as I do. So you loons face it, she will go on sooner or later. Bill will interview her and get the truth out of this phony woman. It’s coming, I will be on the edge of my seat. Poor loons, Angie finally exposed the justice of it all wahhhhabha!!!!!!

guli, just go along with him venting. He’s mad because he knows what ratings he’s missing with her not appearing on his show. I’ve read on so many sites that people want to see proof of her donations and he said he investigated it and found her donations to be true. If the anti’s are going to lick up the negative, they are also going to need to swallow the positive. I’ll accept some of his opinions based on the fact he openly stated “she walks the walk”. A double edged sword I know.

BILL O’REILLY’S LOVELIFE ON THE ROCK’S MASHUP.

This one is just weird. O’Reilly seems to be having some problems at home and he has been quoted lately as saying he likes him some Jennifer Aniston, huh? This is a (video) to the spring break mashup (video) at the top of page, where O’Reilly claims to have been a bit wild in his youth and says he likes Jennifer’s fun side. Here he wonders what one (him) is supposed to do when they (people) are irrational about wanting sex too often.

The new People magazine has a little blurb about the Economist article.The editor even goes on to say that they had few ajustments/corrections when the article was proofread.Remember in the Readers Digest interview Angelina stated how Brad was always the first person to read anything she wrote?He must be so proud of her!

I just watched Bill O’Rielly, only because I wanted to see his segment on BP/AJ. He was his usual pompus self, but he was fair. And agreed that AJ/ BP should keep Z, and had no financial responsibility towards the so called relatives. He cited his investigation into Angie’s humanitarian work, and said she did what she said she did. I am not a BO’r fan, but there are a lot of haters who watch him. His supporting Angie, whatever his motives are, will help to enlighten those hates who might not otherwise read or listen to anything unless it is negative. The guy from Outta Touch looked stupid and a little stunned. I think the tabs are surprised that AJ/BP are getting positive support. People are tired of the triangle, and pity parties. Also they see AJ/BP raising their children and doing good. Haters/trolls/tabs are behind the times. This 2007, not 2005. Peace

This Tom O’Neil and In touch are just so disgusting!!! Im 100% sure that they paid that Ethiopian woman claiming to be Z’s Mom, just to so they could have their story and to bring down Angelina.

This Tom Oneil is cruel and heartless, why could he just say that Angelina should return the baby to her supposed Mom, without thinking of the emotional implications to Angelina and Brad and worst to Zahara, and even her siblings. Zahara has only known Brad and Angie to be her parents and no one else, it will be so traumatic to her. But this idiot Tom just couldnt care less to suggest that Angelina should return her. And not only that he is cruel and heartless, he is very stupid, as the adoption agency has already confirmed, Angelina’s adoption was legal, both adoption agency have the papers from the grandmother and in return Angelina have the papers from the adoption agency. And this guy Tom has the nerve to compare the adoption to Madonna in Malawi, which in the first place, this country do not allow foreign adoption, unlike Ethiopia.

I really think Brad and Angie should not take this thing sitting down, they should sue IN TOUCH and the Bauer publication, who also owns L&S, these guys are heartless and cruel people and are bent to destroy them no matter what!

People this is the honest truth, no lie. Last night I had a dream that Bill O’rielly had Angie on his show and he was defending her, and praising her for her humanitarian work and adopting her children. Mygawd, I don’t know why I had this dream. Now someone just posted that he did defend Angie. But she was not on the show. Peace
_________________________________________________________________
I believe you. Dreams can be reviews(of the day(s)) or previews(of day(s) to come. Usually we don’t understand / remember clearly. Thanks for sharing. I find the subject of sleep/dreams very interesting! I will read more tomorrow. Goodnight to all the fans!!!
Almost midnight in NY.

Some are questioning Angie’s right or ability to write for the Economist. Angie has never described herself as an intellectual or an academic. But she has been described, by others, as a quality communicator. There are different ways to communicate and all are valid if the message one is trying to convey is understood and received. Abstract and obtuse verbage is not neccesarily a sign of good communicating skills. Ronald Reagan, possibly one of the least intellectual American presidents in recent times, was none the less considered a “great communictor.”
Angie’s mission was to write an article describing what she saw, felt, smelled, and knew about a situation that is killing thousands of people. And that she did. C. Rice is an intellectual and an academic who is not a great communicator. There is no warmth in her words. No sense that she has touched or felt any of the things she is talking about. Maybe Angie could have enlisted someone to help her with writing her piece. But then she wouldn’t be Angie. Her piece will rise or fall on her merits. You write as you speak. And Angie is straight forward and to the point person. The horror of murders, rapes, mutilation should not be abstracted or discussed in cold academic rhetoric.

Those who really want to know the sounds of the pain and suffering of the people of Darfur will appreciate Angie’s piece. Those who want to know but don’t need the emotional connection will select something else. Angie doesn’t position herself to be anything other than what she is, a human person trying to help other human persons. And for that effort we should all be thankful. Peace

Hi jan– I’m a non native speaker (are you also a non-native speaker yourself??)
and I don’t find anything in that article foreign to me regarding the words and phrases that Angelina used… Usually people are much more careful with the things they write than the things they speak–because when they write, they have a chance to go back and correct the words they typed and find better words and better phrases.

If you love Angie and if you’re a fan you should know that she’s at an intelligence and obviously knowledge level to write this article based on her experience & the the things she wrote before, like other articles and this book: here’s a link if you want to check it out:

http://www.amazon.com/Angelina-Jolies-Notes-My-Travels/dp/0743470230/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195188090&sr=8-2

most likely you’re a new fan.. so after you take a look at a few things about her, please DO get back to me with your thoughts ;)

kateluvestv @ 11/15/2007 at 11:56 pm

People should never question Bill’s ethics. After all, Bill is the one with a spotless record. Angelina has a tainted history. It’s well known. Bill just wants to get to the real truth about her. I’m sure he won’t be rude, but he will demand the truth & his interviewing style and techniques are needed with a person such as Angelina Jolie. People tend to not ask her the hard questions. Bill will.

Is Angie’s movie being released tonight?

Tabloid writers are hungry for sensational news and will do anything for money. I DON’T believe any negative news about this couple, they are too beautiful inside and out. I always pray for their happiness and safety. God bless them.

I’m sure Brad critiqued Angelina’s write up. I’m sure he is proud of her.

There are people who persist in thinking that Angelina could not have the brains and they also think Brad pitt is equally stupid.

What I want to say is, most of us with an IQ of 100 can write this stuff. It takes time and effort – writing and re-writing draft after draft, taking in the criticisms, doing the research, polishing it. Tweaking a word here, a sentence there. If you can’t be bothered making the effort, that’s another issue all together.

Some are questioning Angie’s right or ability to write for the Economist. Angie has never described herself as an intellectual or an academic. But she has been described, by others, as a quality communicator. There are different ways to communicate and all are valid if the message one is trying to convey is understood and received. Abstract and obtuse verbage is not neccesarily a sign of good communicating skills. Ronald Reagan, possibly one of the least intellectual American presidents in recent times, was none the less considered a “great communictor.”
Angie’s mission was to write an article describing what she saw, felt, smelled, and knew about a situation that is killing thousands of people. And that she did. C. Rice is an intellectual and an academic who is not a great communicator. There is no warmth in her words. No sense that she has touched or felt any of the things she is talking about. Maybe Angie could have enlisted someone to help her with writing her piece. But then she wouldn’t be Angie. Her piece will rise or fall on her merits. You write as you speak. And Angie is straight forward and to the point person. The horror of murders, rapes, mutilation should not be abstracted or discussed in cold academic rhetoric.

Those who really want to know the sounds of the pain and suffering of the people of Darfur will appreciate Angie’s piece. Those who want to know but don’t need the emotional connection will select something else. Angie doesn’t position herself to be anything other than what she is, a human person trying to help other human persons. And for that effort we should all be thankful. Peace

Great post dina#1

angies writing skills lack focus. she should stop trying. bill is right about her. i don’t see why he needs to beg this lady for anything. she should be grateful to come on a conservative show. not that we have her as a must see on bills program. i wish he would not even entertain the idea of angie on his program. the ratings would be low, very low. buh-bye.

:lol: :lol: yup!

Angie is great and a kind fantastic person. She does not owe any money to the relatives of Zahara. This story is the same as the stupid story about Pax’s relatives. Will be happy when Angie and Brad stop getting bashed.
Hey, Jen is suppose to be going out with Jason Lewis? What a joke. Hope she’s going out with someone.

Hi myst. First of all, love your moniker!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for that link to Angie’s book.

This is so strange………..i knew that Angie has had this book out for some years now and i know it is available for sale. Yet i’ve never read so much of it before now, when i followed that link you posted from amazon. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to read so much of it on the site. Even the link on the UNHCR website does not have such a significant amount of extract from the book.

BTW, your post to that passive-aggressive poster ‘jan’ was so civilized – so kind. I think this is pretty much how Angie would respond to the haterz were they courageous enough to even look her in the eye.

I believe if these extracts from Angie’s book were posted on some of these trifling gossip sites, a lot of the empty-headed juveniles and even some old empty-headed hags, would perhaps have a chance to change the world within themselves.

Funny, suddenly all the trolls are talking about Bill O’Reilly as if all the people who watch Bill O TV show are blogging Jared’s specifically about Angelina’s thread. And of course, more NEW NAME posters. And these trolls posting the same topic several times. Coincidence??? I THINK NOT!

THE TROLLS/HATERS/FANISTONS ARE DOING THIS ROUTINE FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS NOW…SO FOR US OLD TIME POSTER WE ALL KNOW THEIR GAME. NOTHING NEW…ONLY THE NAMES ARE NEW.

But, he did do an investigation on her donations and found them to be true, so he does have some redeeming quality, right?
Since he investigated her donations and announced she walks the walk, I’ll let him feel entitled to be frustrated she won’t go on his show.

um..Maureen,
What you’ve stated, makes no sense in my judgement.

Umm why is it O’reilly’s business to do an investigation into Angie’s donation etc.. He can fck off!
What does he have to do with Angie’s life ?
Nothing, exactly.

***********************************************************
See my posts 539 & 542

I’m not agreeing with his opinions, simply accepting that he has them and is frustrated she won’t appear on his show. For whatever his reasons may be. He is mr. interuptus during any conversation and she is only one of many who won’t appear on his show. There is no reason for her to go on his type of show. He questioned her donations for a long time and then finally came out and said they investigated it and found she gives what she says she gives. He at least acknowledged that his questions were unfounded in regards to her donations. In his roundabout way he stated he was wrong. That said, I wish he would drop out of The Donald Trump School of Celebrity Fight Picking.

groundcontrol @ 11/16/2007 at 12:33 am

Just a few thoughts:

Any male over a certain age (maybe 16 or 18) who is part of an adopting household has to be investigated as part of the social study. It doesn’t matter that he is not the person adopting. That would be why Pitt was investgated as part of Zahara’s adoption process.

As for contributing writings to various publications, why would Jolie’s contribution mean that a judge/lawyer from Ghana cannot also contribute. Why is that mutually exclusive? The judge’s CV shows a lack of hands-on experience in the field. Her experience certainly appears impressive but I have seen too many judges and so called experts who get to the top of their field based on all these academic qualifications and impressive job titles but who are totally lacking in real life experiences in their field. Smart and able as they may be, that glaring hole in their resume greatly hinders their ability to effectively do their job. Hopefull they wll listen to people like Jolie who have been in the field to listen and give witness.

I was asking about this the other day. Thank you for posting it. I’m so glad she won, but then again looking at the other nominees, I must say there was no real competition. I wonder if and when the awards will be televised.

He questioned her donations for a long time and then finally came out and said they investigated it and found she gives what she says she gives. He at least acknowledged that his questions were unfounded in regards to her donations. In his roundabout way he stated he was wrong.
——–

The point being Maureen is, Bill has no business in Angie’s business!
I give him credit for nada. Why does he feel the need to investigate anything that has to do with Angie ? It’s not his concern. If he had stayed out of Angie’s business, there would have been no need for him to say ‘ he was wrong’ or whatever. He is an a*hole in my opinion. He needs to keep Angie & Brad out of his ‘garbage insinuations’ and stop stirring up the pot, with his misguided views. Then there won’t be a problem.

Beowulf is playing at several theaters here in Seattle. But it is only playing at one with 3D. That one will probably be difficult to get a ticket.

Ocean’ 11 is on. It was filmed in 2001. So was Brad just getting married to x then? Lady G, guli, Passing Through, whoever is still here what was happening in their lives then? I wasn’t really following him them because of x. Plus he was handsomely pretty. Not mature enough. Still a little girl’s fantasy. But I wouldn’t have kicked him out of the bed. Heheheheheheheh. :lol: :lol: :lol: peace

So Bill took Angelina’s side in this tabloid fiasco? Only because this story is so out of nowhere that only people who have no brain cells would believe this. No one else repeated this story. I watched CNN Showbiz Tonight and they were on what most of Hollywood is talking about, Britney, Lindsay, Oprah, OJ and Marie Osmond’s laundry list of struggles. After watching that show, I come to the conclusion that Brad & Angelina have it easy. Their little issues with the tabs are nothing compared to the problems some of these high profile people have.

fan and lurker @ 11/16/2007 at 1:15 am

I am amaze at the fans who said they were glad B.O.,investigation into Angelina’s UN work proved to be legitimate. Well duh !

What are fans glad for ?

As the blogger said what’s it to B.O.
Is he Angelina’s judge and jury ? Don’t think so.

And for the blogger who thinks B.O has a clean record, what rock have you been living under ? Hello.

I recall his old show , that was brought up “Inside Edition” that clearly was a tabloid show. B.O was chasing and harassing people at their homes/jobs to get his tabloid stories for his show.

Now he is stuck on Angelina. B.O did the same to Oprah , kept up his Oprah mantra , til she invited him on her show. Angelina won’t fall for his ploy.

B.O needs to give it a rest. Pondscum is what I find him to be. Angelina has a life , B.O should get one , someone should just out of the blue , probe his finances to chariies and what not. I know 100% it won’t be Angelina or Brad, they have a full life and are not interested.

AddictedtoBAMPZs @ 11/16/2007 at 1:25 am

Hey, … does anyone smell a rat here with this adoption non-story, invented “scandal” JUST HAPPENING to coincide with Angelina’s new movie opening? Anyone? Doesn’t this ALWAYS happen to both of them? I do not believe for a minute this is a coincidence, and if they are nominated for Golden Globe or Academy Awards, expect the same thing. Even the “new boyfriend” and “Jane’s for Thanksgiving” fabrications strike me as timed to draw attention away from Angie. Doesn’t this happen EVERY SINGLE TIME? Just asking….

yes yes 576 @ 11/16/2007 at 1:29 am

Youre correct. New Movie ,new lying scandal for B&A.
Did you see JJ’s post that JA has a new man’with the sex in da city guy? So obvious, it’s shameful. Night.

AddictedtoBAMPZs @ 11/16/2007 at 1:40 am

#577, do you mean Jared has a new post about X and the new boyfriend? I didn’t find one. All I found when I clicked her name was the latest magazinecover story. And what a sad contrast, comparing her thoughts and words to this article written by Angie. I don’t mean to be unkind at all, it is just a sad, sad comparison, that’s all.

+++++++++++++++

What’s O’Reilly doing while Cheadle, Angie, Brad, et. al. are out campaigning for Darfur? Sexually harrassing employees.

anyway..i still support her..god bless the jolie-pitt

i watched and I couldn’t believe the guy from in touch actually said She should adopt two more and give Zahara back. wth

It's a fact @ 11/16/2007 at 2:13 am

So according to this in touch guy she should give her back. I’m sorry but if it wasn’t for angelina zahara would not be here to give back. Those women would be visiting a grave. The ignorance of this guy is astounding but he’s senior editor of in touch so i expect nothing less. If they are her real family then what makes him think they could look after her now if she nearly died with them trying to raise her. In touch says she only has a piece of bread to eat in the day so how is she going to feed zahara but he says angie should give her back anyway.

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

I think it varies from state to state. In New York, it’s not any male, anybody in the home 18 and over has to be investigated for any history of abuse or neglect or criminal background. That includes the prospective foster or adoptive parents, any of their children 18 and up still living at home, any adult extended family members living in the home, etc.

conspiracy theory @ 11/16/2007 at 2:32 am

You know what I think anytime a tabloid story is spread for a specific reason, you get no denial from the other camp. Ex: Jane Thanksgiving Story, Jen and Jason Lewis. When it is a rumor that she and her camp has nothing to do with, the meeting Shiloh, tell all book, she is so quick to deny, nose job etc. I find it funny that Vince Paul and no maybe Jason stories always start in tabloids.

AddictedtoBAMPZs @ 11/16/2007 at 2:54 am

Well I for one would love to see her find “her soulmate”, like Brad has. The happier he grows and the more wonderful his life becomes the easier it is to wish her well, forget the way she handled the marriage and divorce, etc. I have pangs of sympathy for her, especially when I read the shallow, outdated comments she made under a huge spotlight, her recent cover story for Bazarre. To have such an opportunity and still just be referring back to Friends, Along Came Polly? That is it, that is all she has to offer? It makes you squirm, it is so stale at this point. Even the youngest, newest, usually least involved Hollywood kids are doing charity work, trying to be relevant and stay current.

someonehastosaythetruth @ 11/16/2007 at 3:08 am

a high school or college student could have written that had they the ability and/or finances to travel and do the proper research….not to mention, the special access that she was granted to these people because of her status. seriously, pull yourselves back and look at this without bias. it’s wonderful that she takes the time to care and contribute but…..come on. this is not the work of a genius or even a person of impressive intellect. had a “no name” contributed this piece, it never would have been even seriously considered for publication….

WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT?

SHE WROTE THE ARTICLE, MAYBE MAYBE NOT
SO WHAT?
IT IS NOT AN OEVRE OF HIGH CLASS JUST AN ARTICLE EVERY HALFWAY EDUCATED PERSON CAN WRITE

I really do not get why people making such a fuss out of every move this person does.
No matter what she does or not does it is commented with highest praise
She is a normal personal, not terribly well educated but interested in the ongoings of thisd world which seperates her from two thirds of the american people
But there is nothing exceptional about her
Nice looking, an actress, who travels, helps other people and has a bunch of adopted children

worshippers please tell me whats wrong with you?

Janice : 11/15/2007 at 9:58 pm

I don’t want to invest too much time laboring over tab chat and their insane stances, but Tom O and In Touch seem so damn proud of themselves, so assured and so smug. Reminds me of that cold-calculating b*tch Bonnie Fuller from Star. I came across a piece she wrote in the Huffington Post not too long ago, a couple of days ago actually where she made it a point to say that moms across America should be very proud of themselves, pat themselves on the back, feel guilt free, breathe a sigh of relief because they are not treating their children as horribly as Angelina is treating hers. How crazy is that? It’s brainwashing at its best. The poor and uneducated eat this stuff up. She talked about Angelina ‘schlepping’ her children around the globe. (She also threw in a jab about Angelina’s weight and how it works to intimidate other moms; mothers who are a ‘normal’ size 12 are made to feel inadequate and unable to measure up). It was a short segment and I will not post the link here. I’m not sure why I gave it the time of day really. For me at least, it’s no longer about money with some people like Bonnie. Her constant targeting of Angelina streams the lines of a personal vendetta (not sure why) or this compelling need to be in competition with Angelina and she is hell-bent on brainwashing others to feel as though they need to compete with Angelina too.

ITA. What is up with that? What exactly did Angelina do to make these people so vindictive towards her? I mean, I’m far from the kind of person Angelina is (especially physically) but I don’t blame her for all of my flaws which seems to be what these two are doing. It’s absolutely ridiculous. BTW, I also watched Tom O’Neil on O’Reilly and I gotta say, the whole segment, my jaw was hanging. I kept thinking, does he really believe any of the sh*t that he was saying or was just trying to get a rise out of people. Like a few people here I also don’t always agree with O’Reilly so I didn’t really care whether he sided with Angelina or not but unlike that O’Neil M-O-R-O-N atleast he had the decency to cite actual facts about Angelina before complaining and whining about her. And don’t even get me started with that Bonnie Fuller again. I mean to actually put Angelina in the same caliber as Britney Spears? Did she just have a defective lobotomy or something. It has to be that; there’s just not other sane explanation.

I think she is a wonderful woman, and I admire the way she does not let all the haters get to her. Can u imagine just because she is trying to do something good with her celebrity status, she is hated, but other celebrities who just wants to make money for their own greed, get good publicity, i speak of course of BECKHAM who is making millions for doing what??????????? and getting good publicity, but Angie does good and she gets panned. The world does not make sense.

>>>>>>>>>>>

Just for the fun of it, I’ll answer you.

(a) I don’t worship her. I find her admirable but on my totem pole,not as admirable as say, Mother Theresa or Aung sung suu kyi or even the aid workers in the field. I’ll be the first to acknowledge how extraordinary those people are.

(b) most fans know her to be an ORDINARY person (except perhaps in her looks) – but one who has achieved extraordinary things by though she IS AN ORDINARY HUMAN BEING. You see, we agree with you.

Angelina isn’t a genius, she isn’t the bravest, most sacrificing woman in the world. There are others – see Mother Theresa and Aung Sung Suu Kyi , again, here. She isn’t braver or more sacrificing then the aid workers on the field or the doctors from doctors without borders who go out there with their nurses without borders.

(c) however, as I said in (b) above, for an ordinary person who could be like you or me, just sitting in front of the computer blogging about all sorts of stuff. But there is Angelina, meeting with refugees, setting up charities, earning millions of dollars AND DONATING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, creating the Maddox Jolie Pitt Programe in Cambodia which has provided roads and industry to more than 6000 villagers, setting up the Maddox Chivan Children’s Home also in Cambodia and providing finance to pay for aids medication for more than 200 children, and through her charity and her attention perhaps help thousands more (just because when she goes somewhere, donations to UNHCR SPIKES) and using the currency of fame more effectively most people to help others in need of attention, taking the time for a “not terribly well educated” woman to write an essay which as I’ve said before, anyone with an IQ of 100 can write – IF THEY MAKE THE EFFORT.

Just LIKE YOU AND ME, ordinary people, she doesn’t HAVE TO DO ANY OF THIS. More so because she lives in america where 2/3 of people aren’t interested in this sort of stuff and she is RICH. No need to get paid danger money to make ends meet.

So firstly, her interest in the going on of other people does separate her from 2/3 of the American population (and BTW, I think you are being kind because I think the number is closer to 90% disinterested in what goes on with the rest of the world, though I’ll accept the number 2/3 for now).

But what truly separates her from the rest of the ordinary 1/3 of people like me, who is interested in the world, is that whilst that 99% of the 1/3 of people (Like me), might wring our hands and go tut tut over the slaughter in Darfur, or the problem of 20m aids orphans in Africa or the 6000 villages who have limited means to earn an income , Angelina is part of the 1% of the 1/3 of people who are INTERESTED AND DOING SOMETHING CONCRETE ABOUT THE INTEREST by making very effective use of her fame and beauty and what little intelligence and education she has to do something about it.

And if you think the Cambodian governmentn would give someone an honorary citizenship just because she acted in the Lara Croft movies and adopted a Cambodiann orphan, you must be like the 2/3 of american people who have no idea about the pride and the dignity of Cambodian people.

So whilst I don’t say I worship her :lol: I do find the things she does worthy of my praise. Does helping 6000 villagers mean the same to you as working once a week in the soup kitchen? See, I’m an ordinary woman and I would do that. But though I’m an ordinary woman, I wouldn’t fly any where where my hand could get cut off, raped by gangs of horny, Aids infected MEN or where I could get killed like Darfur or Sierra Leone. Soup Kitchens are OK, Sierra Leone and congo, gang rapes and lost arms, – no way. But she goes there you see and as I’m not willing to go to these places to help, I find her admirable, though not of course, as admirable as AID workers there.

Now perhaps you think that some one helping in a soup kitchen once a week deserves just as much admiration as some one who has flown to dangerous places to highlight the plight of refugees having to wear armoured gear, hide in rooms etc and helped 6000 villagers expand the means to earn an income and educate their children. But I don’t agree with you. I think someone doing what Angelina has done deserving of greater praise then someone who just works in a soup kitchen once a week. Because there is no question to me, which takes more effort for an ORDINARY WOMAN.

And so, belittler, please tell me, what’s wrong with you?

The Economist is THE international news journal, above Wall Street Journal, above CNN, above New York Times. This is huge!!!

ITA. X personality was a total polar opposite of Angie. the recent Harper interview was no different from her interview taken 10 yrs. ago. so full of herself , narcissistic and shallow, can’t imagine this came from an almost 40 y/o. woman. Brad must be in total misery living with her in the last few yrs. of their marriage. when the physical lust or attraction ceased, there’s nothing left in that relation.

piper, with a low @ 11/16/2007 at 6:48 am

Based on what some have said about O’Reilly, I decided to record the Factor in order to see his defense of Angelina. I gotta say that I was not entirely impressed. And I get the feeling that this O’Neil person has a permanent place in the Factor’s guest chair. This is what I emailed O’Reilly; mind you, I think my sarcasm may have gone over their heads:

Mr. O’Reilly,
I can’t tell you how much I appreciated Tom O’Neil’s take on what should happen to Zahara Jolie-Pitt. Nevermind that this woman ran away from her dying child while in the interim, managed to keep her body and soul together for the last two years. Nevermind that this is the second time a grandmother came forward trying to claim Zahara, or Teena, as her own. Nevermind the presence of mental instability due to a rape and the possible implications in the way this ‘mother’ views her child. Nevermind all of that.

The Jolie-Pitts need to cut a check and give that baby back. Why? Because Tom O’Neil said so, because his righteous indignation about where adopted children belong is coming from a sincere place. But could you tell him that next time, could he refer to the child in question, aka Zahara, as ‘this child’ or ‘this little girl’ or ‘this toddler’ or hey ‘Zahara’ instead of ‘it’ or ‘this one’? Zahara is not a swag bag, you know.

JUST SAYING..Is Just Jazz @ 11/16/2007 at 7:00 am

Hi JP Fans Wishng you all well , Great posts although i am very far behind.It’s so wonderful to see all you’r amazing posts at a time when once again Angie is being slammed this time for her adoption of her sweet baby doll Zee. Arrggg I can’t believe In Touch mag. Cruelty at it’s most disgusting ever. I know Angie is strong but nothing hurts us more then talk like that about our babies. She will get through this ,God love her and bless her heart along with Brad and their children.

I am sorry i can’t be here more to jump in even once and awhile if just to say how much i love Angie Brad and their kids .A fan for life.

I am going thru some treatments that have knocked me for a loop so am sleeping my life away for now but not forever.

Have to get ready to go now and will try to be back more often when i can stay awake.

Take care Fans, oh and Jared , hugs ..you are the best ,you will never know how much you are appreciated for making sure we get the very best of the best of Angie and Brads pics and threads. Great job!
Again,Be well JP Fans..

Peace..

Question should be why Oreilly is speaking to the editor of a tabloid. Isn’t Oreilly show suppose to be about FACTS. OReilly having that trash on his show just makes his show trash.

lylian : 11/16/2007 at 5:30 am

(a) I don’t worship her. I find her admirable but on my totem pole,not as admirable as say, Mother Theresa or Aung sung suu kyi or even the aid workers in the field. I’ll be the first to acknowledge how extraordinary those people are.

(b) most fans know her to be an ORDINARY person (except perhaps in her looks) – but one who has achieved extraordinary things by though she IS AN ORDINARY HUMAN BEING. You see, we agree with you.

Angelina isn’t a genius, she isn’t the bravest, most sacrificing woman in the world. There are others – see Mother Theresa and Aung Sung Suu Kyi , again, here. She isn’t braver or more sacrificing then the aid workers on the field or the doctors from doctors without borders who go out there with their nurses without borders.

(c) however, as I said in (b) above, for an ordinary person who could be like you or me, just sitting in front of the computer blogging about all sorts of stuff. But there is Angelina, meeting with refugees, setting up charities, earning millions of dollars AND DONATING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, creating the Maddox Jolie Pitt Programe in Cambodia which has provided roads and industry to more than 6000 villagers, setting up the Maddox Chivan Children’s Home also in Cambodia and providing finance to pay for aids medication for more than 200 children, and through her charity and her attention perhaps help thousands more (just because when she goes somewhere, donations to UNHCR SPIKES) and using the currency of fame more effectively most people to help others in need of attention, taking the time for a “not terribly well educated” woman to write an essay which as I’ve said before, anyone with an IQ of 100 can write – IF THEY MAKE THE EFFORT.

Just LIKE YOU AND ME, ordinary people, she doesn’t HAVE TO DO ANY OF THIS. More so because she lives in america where 2/3 of people aren’t interested in this sort of stuff and she is RICH. No need to get paid danger money to make ends meet.

So firstly, her interest in the going on of other people does separate her from 2/3 of the American population (and BTW, I think you are being kind because I think the number is closer to 90% disinterested in what goes on with the rest of the world, though I’ll accept the number 2/3 for now).

But what truly separates her from the rest of the ordinary 1/3 of people like me, who is interested in the world, is that whilst that 99% of the 1/3 of people (Like me), might wring our hands and go tut tut over the slaughter in Darfur, or the problem of 20m aids orphans in Africa or the 6000 villages who have limited means to earn an income , Angelina is part of the 1% of the 1/3 of people who are INTERESTED AND DOING SOMETHING CONCRETE ABOUT THE INTEREST by making very effective use of her fame and beauty and what little intelligence and education she has to do something about it.

And if you think the Cambodian governmentn would give someone an honorary citizenship just because she acted in the Lara Croft movies and adopted a Cambodiann orphan, you must be like the 2/3 of american people who have no idea about the pride and the dignity of Cambodian people.

So whilst I don’t say I worship her :lol: I do find the things she does worthy of my praise. Does helping 6000 villagers mean the same to you as working once a week in the soup kitchen? See, I’m an ordinary woman and I would do that. But though I’m an ordinary woman, I wouldn’t fly any where where my hand could get cut off, raped by gangs of horny, Aids infected MEN or where I could get killed like Darfur or Sierra Leone. Soup Kitchens are OK, Sierra Leone and congo, gang rapes and lost arms, – no way. But she goes there you see and as I’m not willing to go to these places to help, I find her admirable, though not of course, as admirable as AID workers there.

Now perhaps you think that some one helping in a soup kitchen once a week deserves just as much admiration as some one who has flown to dangerous places to highlight the plight of refugees having to wear armoured gear, hide in rooms etc and helped 6000 villagers expand the means to earn an income and educate their children. But I don’t agree with you. I think someone doing what Angelina has done deserving of greater praise then someone who just works in a soup kitchen once a week. Because there is no question to me, which takes more effort for an ORDINARY WOMAN.

And so, belittler, please tell me, what’s wrong with you?
———–
I couldn’t agree with you more.

Jolie-Pitts are just simply awesome.

piper, with a low : 11/16/2007 at 6:48 am

Mr. O’Reilly,
I can’t tell you how much I appreciated Tom O’Neil’s take on what should happen to Zahara Jolie-Pitt. Nevermind that this woman ran away from her dying child while in the interim, managed to keep her body and soul together for the last two years. Nevermind that this is the second time a grandmother came forward trying to claim Zahara, or Teena, as her own. Nevermind the presence of mental instability due to a rape and the possible implications in the way this ‘mother’ views her child. Nevermind all of that.

The Jolie-Pitts need to cut a check and give that baby back. Why? Because Tom O’Neil said so, because his righteous indignation about where adopted children belong is coming from a sincere place. But could you tell him that next time, could he refer to the child in question, aka Zahara, as ‘this child’ or ‘this little girl’ or ‘this toddler’ or hey ‘Zahara’ instead of ‘it’ or ‘this one’? Zahara is not a swag bag, you know.

Thank you piper! (((claps)))

……

The only actor who doesn’t look unnatural in digital form is Angelina Jolie, who plays Grendel’s mom. No doubt that’s because Jolie in her natural state already looks like she was created in a computer. With those outsized lips and va-va-voom physique covered in gold paint like a Bond girl from “Goldfinger,” she coos coolly to Beowulf. She’s a siren who can drive a strong man to seriously consider the possibilities of interspecies romance.

Oh, Mama. Old Beowulf doesn’t stand a chance.

congrats to angie on the win

raspberry,thanks for the review

Thanks for all the links to pictures, videos and articles. Congrats to AJ and AMH for the many accolades the movie is and will receive. It is a touching and moving film and AJ gave a strong performance. I wish BP and AJ and their 4 adorable children the best. BP and AJ are good people who try to make a difference in the world. It is not meant to be the stuff of legends, just to help out where needed. Because they are trying to help, there will be others seeking to tear them down. I guess it is better to play the whiny victim then to go out and live your life and try to be of service. I admire them for taking the media glare thrust upon them and shining on people who would otherwise not have a voice. Best wishes to BAMPZS and Peace to all. I am looking forward to seeing BEOWULF.

shhhhhhhh.... @ 11/16/2007 at 8:52 am

lylian, i would on the part about not worshiping w/c i don’t . i like angelina the way she is and everything. but my only disagreement w/ ur analysis is -i believe if she happen to be a real aid worker,nurses or doctor w/o borders , she could excel or just do pretty much the same as those people.as far as bravest or most sacrificing , WE DON’T KNOW …….unless she is exposed into a daring situations,where her bravery is needed or to sacrifice herself. i won’t compare her to mother theresa becoz she is in another league, tht’s why she is called a saint. however angelina is a young woman who has an interesting pathwork in life – her achievements , passion and character makes her more fascinating.the aidworers,nurses or doctors w/o borders are getting paid too right?…..i won’t compare here to those group of people either unless she is become one of them or choose tht vocation , then we can say , oh she is not the bravest or the most sacrificing and besides, she had a family to care for. to sum it up, there is only one mother teresa! and there is only one angelina jolie! one is totally different from the other.mother teresa is a saint and angelina is an extra- ordinary woman out of the ordinary ones.

HEY GUYS,

CALL IT LIKE IT IS. TAKE IT LIKE A MAN OR YOUR MANISTON.
USMAGAZINE SHOULD RETRACT THAT STORY AND SAY WE ARE MAKING A CORRECTION.
THAT STORY WAS LAME AND YOU ALL KNOW IT. IT WAS HURTFUL AND WAS DONE IN SPITE.

MAKE THE RIGHT CORRECTION RIGHT NOW THIS IS NOT A CORRECTION OR AN APOLOGY FOR YOUR STUPID MISTAKES.

WRITE THE CORRECTION AND STAND CORRECTED. WE ANGIE AND BRAD TRUE FANS ARE NOW UP IN ARMS ANY BULL STORIES WE WILL EXPOSE AND MAKE YOU GUYS LOOK LIKE ****.

APOLOGIES AND YOU LOOK BETTER THAN THAT OUT OR TOUCH “INTOUCH” MAGAZINE.

DO IT RIGHT AWAY. THIS ARTICLE DOESN’T COME CLOSE TO A CORRECTION / RETRACTION OR AN APOLOGY.
I URGE YOU TO DO IT NOW NOW NOW..

Brad said it all very well in an interview.

People are jealous of their relationship and are taking cheap shots thinking that it will break them up. He said he is certainly not shaken and they are stronger and as much in love now as they were the first time. All those fake adoption stories, torn pants, weight lose, break-ups, weddings, fights DO NOT EXIST. I am sure they dont loose any sleep over the nonsense. Being jealous is not going to make them love each other any less. The haters should just get over it, yeah they are beautiful, they love each other and have an adorable family, LIVE WITH IT.

Good morning, BAMPZS fans!

I was in such a good mood this morning because today Beowulf opens. But when I turned on my computer and was browsing, I came across this article in this link:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7097864.stm

It’s good that the agency stepped up to refute the claim, but what I find disgusting is that even such a venerable news agency such as the BBC has said that “Recent news reports said a woman who claimed to be the birth mother of Zahara, two, wanted the child back.” I mean, WTF? It was only InTouch that brought this shite up, and now everyone, even legitimate media, is saying that “news reports” said so?

That is why we really should be vigilant in boycotting, emailing, and making people aware of how erroneous these reports are. Not everyone out there knows as much as we do, so we really need to do our part. I have emailed msnbc.com about an erroneous report they picked up from Star, and have also emailed InTouch. And have not bought a rag in years, whereas before I used to pick one up (the one with the prettiest pictures) every Saturday morning when we did our grocery shopping).

Is it true that JP`s will lose Zee? :( I`m sure Brad will do anything in order not to lose Zee.we all know how much he and angie love her.

Angelina and Brad Pitt have great fans.

The fans do not need for everyone to like them but when there’s obvious & malicious slander against them, they step up to the plate.

Well done JP fans.

piper, with a low : 11/16/2007 at 6:48 am
Based on what some have said about O’Reilly, I decided to record the Factor in order to see his defense of Angelina. I gotta say that I was not entirely impressed. And I get the feeling that this O’Neil person has a permanent place in the Factor’s guest chair. This is what I emailed O’Reilly; mind you, I think my sarcasm may have gone over their heads:

Mr. O’Reilly,
I can’t tell you how much I appreciated Tom O’Neil’s take on what should happen to Zahara Jolie-Pitt. Nevermind that this woman ran away from her dying child while in the interim, managed to keep her body and soul together for the last two years. Nevermind that this is the second time a grandmother came forward trying to claim Zahara, or Teena, as her own. Nevermind the presence of mental instability due to a rape and the possible implications in the way this ‘mother’ views her child. Nevermind all of that.

The Jolie-Pitts need to cut a check and give that baby back. Why? Because Tom O’Neil said so, because his righteous indignation about where adopted children belong is coming from a sincere place. But could you tell him that next time, could he refer to the child in question, aka Zahara, as ‘this child’ or ‘this little girl’ or ‘this toddler’ or hey ‘Zahara’ instead of ‘it’ or ‘this one’? Zahara is not a swag bag, you know.

*******************************************************************
Great email! I hope your eyes and ears are okay after watching them. Did either of the O’Diots explain the speed aging process the supposed mother went through in 2 years?

*yeah, you’re right, BO should not have questioned Angie’s donations in the first place. A responsible news person would look into the facts before spouting off.

Her article was very good.

This quote also applies to the tabloid trash.
“This is not an isolated example. Accountability has the potential to change behaviour, to check aggression by those who are used to acting with impunity.”

652 DDDD

Thanks,I think at first she wanted to say Brad still has some work there but suddenly change it to we.I think Angie will travel for X-mas and maybe brad will shoot those scenes for BB in NO while he and kids are there.

#641, Piper with a low…Yikes. I don’t follow football, but watched the video you posted. What was the situation or incident the coach was reacting to?

I was the first poster last night to report the O’Reilly show story, before anyone else weighed in. I don’t watch, but as I surfed by his show I heard him mention Angelina’s name, so of course stayed and listened, then raced to the computer to report what seemed at first to be great news. Now, after reading other people’s comments, I agree with those who took a far more cynical approach…why the heck was he giving that jerk nobody FROM A TABLOID a forum to bring up a hokey fake story? It is a suspicious story, somehow planted JUST as Angie’s movie is opening. (Smacking myself in the head.) Never should have been on a program claiming to be solid news. Never, never, never.

VERY IMPORTANT OFF TOPIC
OMG,guys yesterday on acess hollywood i saw a clip about x helping sick children,they gonna show it today,i was sick to my stomach,this woman is suspect,WTF,why at this time,something fisy is going on

Ray’s deliberate mistake

Beowulf star Ray Winstone has apparently admitted he kept getting his kissing scene with Angelina Jolie wrong on purpose.

The 50-year-old Brit – who plays the epic hero – had to kiss the actress, who is transformed into a naked demon in the animated flick.

He is quoted by The Sun as saying: “I kept getting the kissing scene wrong on purpose.

“With 360-degree camera work you don’t miss much, so you have got to do it proper. It’s one of the perks of the job.”

The film used the latest computer graphic imaging (CGI) technology to capture the actions of the characters.

“You stand in this blue suit covered in dots and you go to work. You feel very vulnerable at first,” Ray added.

“Angelina was also in a blue suit, but the difference was that she looked good in it.

“You had Brendan Gleeson, me and Anthony Hopkins – and we are not the Gods that people think we are.

“Then you had Robin Wright Penn and Angelina, who are both beautiful women. They could put a plastic bag on their heads and still look wonderful.”

669,energy,thanks for the article

I tried my hand at predicting box office numbers last week. I predicted TC’s Lions would end up with around 10 million by the end of the weekend and I suppose I overestimated by A LOT. LoL. I’ve been reading Beowulf reviews and tracking estimates on and off for awhile. Rotten Tomatoes for the moment has Beowulf at 71% based on 80 reviews, which means it makes the grade (for now) as ‘Certified Fresh’, it has a B+ grade by the Critics on Yahoo and B by the users based on 90 reviews, so far. These could all change, but for right now that’s pretty good. A few moviecritics have placed it at #1 for the weekend. So my new box office prediction this week for Beowulf will be that it will end up #1 with a weekend gross of about 30 million.

briseis

I know you’re watching Beowulf today, Enjoy it sweetie :)

Have a lovely day :D

Take Care!

Janice

Hi :)

It looks like Beowulf is gonna be a hit :D

Have a nice day :)

You are welcome Angel.

Janice I think Beowuld will gross more than 30Mand even much more next weekend being thanks giving am glad it opens today so that more people through word of mouth can go watch it next week. My estimate is about $45M and 30M worldwide. It it having extremely good reviews especially world wide.

Cant wait for monday to get the final numbers in.

Andrómeda @ 11/16/2007 at 10:43 am

The Top-Earning Actors Over 35
Louis Hau and Peter Hoy 11.14.07, 12:22 PM ET
Poor Brad Pitt. Pity George Clooney. Oh, woe is Nicole Kidman. It seems like yesterday when they first appeared on our collective radars, but now they’re all in their 40s. Surely, their ability to generate mega-bucks must be fast approaching an end, right?

Nope. Nothing generates income in Hollywood like a proven track record. And potential stars need to rack up some miles on the career odometer before they can demonstrate the full extent of their earning power.

Brad Pitt
Age: 43

Pay: $35 mil

As headlines about his new role as a proud parent abated, Pitt focused again on his acting. Over the summer, Pitt starred opposite pal George Clooney in Ocean’s 13, and in the fall, alongside Ocean’s co-star Casey Affleck in The Assassination of Jesse James. Next year, Pitt stars in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Tom Cruise
Age: 45

Pay: $31 mil

After his falling out with Paramount last year, Cruise plotted his comeback (with longtime producing partner Paula Wagner) as head of United Artists, the moribund studio under MGM. This fall, Cruise stars in Lions for Lambs. Directed by Robert Redford, the film opened to a modest $6.7 million its first weekend in theaters. In production now is Valkyrie, a World War II thriller.

Will Smith
Age: 39

Pay: $31 mil

Smith earned his second Oscar nomination for his role in last year’s treacly rags-to-riches tale The Pursuit of Happyness, which grossed $298 million worldwide. In December, Warner Bros. will release the apocalyptic thriller I Am Legend. One of Hollywood’s most reliable hitmakers, his going rate is $20 million per film, plus a chunk of box office grosses.

George Clooney
Age: 46

Pay: $25 mil

Clooney abides by the “one for them, one for me” theory of filmmaking. The dashing star, named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” last year, made almost nothing from his art-house flick The Good German, but garnered a $15 million payday to pal around with real-life buddy Brad Pitt in Ocean’s 13. He and Pitt will reunite on screen next year in Burn After Reading, a drama directed by the Coen brothers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From what I gathered, a journalist wrote a really nasty piece about one of his players being too soft to play college football, citing an instance about his mom feeding him chicken, which, quite frankly, seemed a bit below the belt and irrelevant.

I posted this because when I saw this weeks ago, I was impressed at the passion and anger directed at the journalist who probably expected to have the last word about this player and this particular football team.

I wish that someone would publicly smoke this O’Neil guy, just like this coach just did. But the video offer some sort of solace, for me at least.

He did? I never read that, now I have another quote to look for.
Lucky Brad he doesnt have to find a reason to pretend, he enjoys the previllage.

VERY IMPORTANT OFF TOPIC
OMG,guys yesterday on acess hollywood i saw a clip about x helping sick children,they gonna show it today,i was sick to my stomach,this woman is suspect,WTF,why at this time,something fisy is going on

========================================================
She hasn’t gotten tired of riding the coattails of her ex-husband (I wonder why she hadn’t tried riding the coattails of her ex-boyfriend, VV, after all, VV also makes hit movies, maybe because it was never a real relationship in the first place, she could only milk it so far). She would even ride Angelina’s charity coattails, whatever it takes, as long as she is talked about. I shudder to think the riding she will do when her own movies come out next year (after all, it’s not like Traveling and Management are going to be megahits — Steve Zahn? Woody Harrelson? Aaron Eckhart?) It will just be funny when she has nothing to ride, after all, next year is when Angie takes a break.

Thanks,in just 2/5 years all the news and blogs bring brad`s name as papa pitt and brad:father of four,same goes to angie:mom.while TC after many years of fatherhood still doesn`t count as father in blog`s articles.It just shows how much caring and good parent these two are among HW `s parent. :)

conspiracy theory @ 11/16/2007 at 11:02 am

It is St Judes , she doing the same tv/movie spots for them.

Yes : 11/16/2007 at 10:41 am

There had been some resistance to this movie in the weeks leading up. ’300′ movie lovers not wanting Beowulf to succeed, the CGI/3D skeptics, the Angelina complainers etc, but from what I gather there are many more who are willing to give this movie a chance, refusing to cast doubt and label it without having seen it first. I think ‘curiosity and intrigue’ are big draws. I plan on seeing it over some course of the weekend.

Andrómeda @ 11/16/2007 at 11:08 am

ENERGY: Yes, I remember reading about it in some newspapers and magazines of my country that were citing some quotes from magazines of other places, don´t remember the names now…sorry.
Brad is a very, very lucky man.

674 ENERGY : 11/16/2007 at 10:43 am

I’m new to the box office prediction game. I’m playing it safe. LOL, but I’m willing to revise my estimate if I come across some new information. Very early estimates had this movie pulling in somewhere near $50 opening weekend, but that was back in October and a lot could have changed since then. I have no doubt that it will make back it’s production budget, perhaps even in the North American box office alone due to word of mouth and the fact that in November there are no real movies that pose a challenge. The only real movies that will make a dent at the box office seem to be Disney’s Enchanted, Stephen King’s the Mist and the Hitman which is based off a video game apparently.

Box Office @ 11/16/2007 at 11:11 am

Weekend boxoffice predictions for Beowulf range from $19 million to $32 million.

There seems to be no consensus and forecasting is quite hard.

689 Box Office : 11/16/2007 at 11:11 am

I never came across an article estimating it could possibly only take in $19 million, that surprises me. I usually look to Steve Mason’s estimates/tracking (and a few others) but he has yet to post his final numbers for this weekend, so we will see.

Box Office @ 11/16/2007 at 11:25 am

boxoffice prophets has pegged it at $19 million.

Shout out to Melissa and Missouri Fan!

((((((((Hugs and Kisses)))))))

Enjoy Beowulf ladies :)

Box Office @ 11/16/2007 at 11:31 am

The UK Boxoffice will be interesting this weekend.

BEOWULF vs AMERICAN GANGSTER

which one will come on top?

693

It might be American Gangster although i’d like it to be Beowulf. I actually had a ticket for AG, i gave to someone who’s gonna enjoy the film. I go with Beowulf!

691 Box Office : 11/16/2007 at 11:25 am

Thanks. Although it seems as though last week BO prophets estimated Fred Claus taking in 32 million and it took it 18 million, Lion’s taking in 12 million and it 6 million, and 19 million for Bee Movie and it ended up taking 25 million..numbers were way off, so needless to say I’m still going to wait for Steve’s column.

Here’s the Movie Up clip Frenchy mentioned above. It’s from ReelzChannel.com.

hi ENERGY.
if you’re still on, had to say i only just saw from the previous thread what you said about Meet Joe Black.
So I guess we differ on that movie. :lol:
I agree that it’s good but for me it just wasn’t Brad’s best. :-/
I totally loved the soundtrack to that movie though. And that favorite line of course.
Haven’t seen TAOJJ though because Warner’s sucks but I’m looking forward to the DVD. Just wished they had advertised it more or released widely. In more cities and countries… but anyway, Warner sucks. :lol:

Jolie-Pitts rock!

Box Office @ 11/16/2007 at 11:38 am

695 Yes

I believe the only tv shows that discussed that In Touch article were E’s Daily Ten and the Bill O’Reiley show and they were both pro-Angie.Two years ago it would have been on EXtra And Access Hullywood,etc so thats some progress I suppose.

Box Office @ 11/16/2007 at 11:49 am

702 Yes

A relatively large percentage of BEOWULF’s boxoffice gross will come from IMAX theaters.

Happy TGIF BAMPZS Fans!!!! :-)

WHOOP!!!! I found the MAMS ‘gag reel’. As you know they have been deleted from youtube and other sites due to copy right issues. So I don’t know how long this will be around, enjoy it while you can

Thank you to all the fans for the great links to articles and pics :-)

piper, with a low @ 11/16/2007 at 12:04 pm

I don’t give a rip about the BO; I bought my Beowulf IMAX ticket, so I’m a happy camper. But I am shocked by the reviews for Love, in the Time of Cholera; it’s only 24% Fresh.

All of the talk about Oscars for this movie…

piper,some of those so called oscar movies are not really all that,look at my blueberry night,it was hated by all critics in cannes

Enough with the predictions. Go and support the movie!!!!

710,most of us already have our tickets ready

People should never question Bill’s ethics. After all, Bill is the one with a spotless record. Angelina has a tainted history. It’s well known. Bill just wants to get to the real truth about her. I’m sure he won’t be rude, but he will demand the truth & his interviewing style and techniques are needed with a person such as Angelina Jolie. People tend to not ask her the hard questions. Bill will.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LOL What “hard questions” do you think Angelina should be asked. Bill O’Rielly is a bully and a blowhard. He is often very rude, constantly interrupts and shouts over people on his show. He cuts their microphones off if they don’t follow his line of thinking. When people won’t go on his little cable show he always bashes them – either on the show or on his radio hate fest. AJ knows better than to fall for that stuff. AJ has set her agenda for interviews and I doubt that will change in any way except maybe becoming more exclusive.

572 dina #1 :

Hey ladies I posted this last night. Could someone pls answer it for me? Also did Angie get some type of praise for her piece in the Economist? I personallly think she did a really good job.

Ocean’ 11 is on. It was filmed in 2001. So was Brad just getting married to x then? Lady G, guli, Passing Through, whoever is still here what was happening in their lives then? I wasn’t really following him them because of x. Plus he was handsomely pretty. Not mature enough. Still a little girl’s fantasy. But I wouldn’t have kicked him out of the bed. Heheheheheheheh. peace

Aniston has a tainted history of lying to the public and lying to her then husband. It’s well known. The press and the majority of the public should just want get to the real truth about her. The press tends to not ask her the hard questions. Bill should interview Jennifer Aniston and demands the truth.

cristina,so true

Ocean’ 11 is on. It was filmed in 2001. So was Brad just getting married to x then? Lady G, guli, Passing Through, whoever is still here what was happening in their lives then? I wasn’t really following him them because of x. Plus he was handsomely pretty. Not mature enough. Still a little girl’s fantasy. But I wouldn’t have kicked him out of the bed. Heheheheheheheh. peace
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Dina, Ocean’s 11 was filmed after Aniston & Pitt married (July 29, 2000.)

no x files,please

what’s going go?

To my fellow Seattlite Dina#1,

I saw your question about Brad Pitt re:2001. I have a link that has the summary and links to published articles about him throughout the years. So if you are interested in timelines and related stories about Brad this would be a good starting point.

http://www.abstracts.net/brad-pitt/

BTW I bought tickets to see Beowulf tomorrow at the Pacific Science Center IMAX to see the movie in IMAX 3D. My husband needed no cajoling to accompany me. Actually all three movies by the Jolie-Pitts this year were amazing and I might just turn him into a J-P fan.

i was cooking,it seems like no one is around

Good morning, afternoon, evening to all BAMPZS fans! :D
I’m all caught up. CONGRATULATIONS ANGIE ON YOUR WIN AWARD!!! CONGRATULATIONS BRAD AND ANGIE ON THE WIN FOR “A MIGHTY HEART”!!!
And it keeps on rolling. Bring on the Golden Globes! Do your thing, Brad and Angie!

I didn’t see that it was playing there. I just bought my tickets to see it at AMC in 3D. I wonder if I can change them for IMAX? I was looking for IMAX all week and never saw it advertized. Oh, I am upset now. My daughter just called from NY ssaying she is on her way to see it in IMAX and 3D. Let me see if I can change them. But if not at least I have 3D. Thank you for responding. Oh I am going to the 6:30 pm movie because I don’t want to pay full price for parking. I truly hate going downtown for movies. Okay tomorrow let’s discuss it. Peace.
