    Good Morning all. Have a great day and spport the MIR project. There are certainly problems throughout the world, from the conflict in the Sudan, natural disasters and poverty. BP and AJ are international superstars who have taken the time and money to help in various causes. Talk is cheap, but action goes a long way. Donating “quietly” and criticizing others efforts do not raise awareness and bring attention to worthy causes. It just gives an excuse for celebrities and average citizens who are not doing anything but being complacent and basking in their tabloid attention. Best wishes to AJ. You cannot keep a good woman down even with your lies and hate. Somehow the good and talented always rises to the top.
    Peace to all and thanks for the updates Just Jared. Posting comments is difficult on your site so you may want to check it out.

    Love Angie, Brad and kids! Great family!

    Hi everyone,

    Gosh, I have been to St. Jean Cap Ferrat many times—it is so exlusive, but if you go there you will know why Jolie-Pitt are staying there. Usually the properties are completely hidden by thick trees and high walls/gates, there is no way any papps or intruders can get in. I’m surprised they got that photo of Angie in the villa. It’s blurly since that must have been a really long range camera! If you get to go into one of the villas there is nothing like it. There is a Rothschild villa with a fantastic botanical garden which is open to the public so I recommend a visit to get the idea. Also there is a beautiful faux-ancient Greek villa at the tip of the Cap by the water, called Villa Kerylos which is also open to the public.

    Funny, quit a while ago I was ‘flying’ over the earth with my daughter on Google Earth (you can tilt the view just right and run your mouse, then you do feel like flying! we go see the Pyramids etc–it’s fun) and we were near the Riviera. The Google Earth showed “Paul Allen’s Villa” in their bookmark (!) so we clicked it and you can even see the beautiful garden LOL! If I have time I will do it again :)

  • irma

    So Proud of Brad & Angie. Way to go.

  • irma

    I may added that Brad & Angie’s name are recognized all over the world not just as an actors but also as a humanitarian & being influential in a sense that your names are with other top notch people in the govt. & religious names are an honor itself.
    May God continue to bless the Jolie-Pitt’s Family.
    Good morning to all the fans of Brad & Angie. Have to go to work, bye see you all tonight.

  • rachel green’s burma psa

    hey guys, watch how idiotic aniston is in her Burma PSA!

    It looks like she is making fun of Burma, she wasnt serious at all! Its like she only wants to do something about it because thats what Woody Harrelson wants for him to get out from his trailer.

    Im not sure what Jennifer is trying to show, but they are suppose to be playing themselves, but the way she acted, she seems clueless about Burma, and made a comedy out it, by saying to her yoga trainer to Free Burma, make it happen just for Woody to get out of his trailer and go back to set.

    Her PSA is weird, compared to Will Ferrel, who is in fact a comedian and yet made a serious talk about Aung San Suu Kyi.

    http://www.burmaitcantwait.org/burmaitcantwait/

    Her idiotic fans are commenting she is funny, but why is she suppose to be funny? Its suppose to be serious stuff! And what is weirder, she is acting like RAchel Green!

    Is this statement the product of a long night with no sleep or getting up too early in the morning? Either way…your stupidity is on full-display 24/7/365.

    ROTFLMBAO. These tabs just won’t give up on the wedding that isn’t, will they? Now they’ve got Mariane as a bridesmaid…and James has gone from giving Angie away to bring Brad’s best man? Puh-leeze. These rags are just embarrassing themselves. Somebody make ‘em stop.

  • well…

    rachel green’s burma psa @ 05/02/2008 at 9:24

    Will Farrell did one and he was silly also. I guess that how they expect to get people’s attention. But I am willing to bet X does not know anything about the subject just that she was ask to do it.

  • mouche

    I would rather say that this is a list of who is the most influential people in USA for the moment LOL LOL!!! I am not sure if the rest of the world agree!

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

    I dont think Will Farrell was being silly, he talked about what the campaign is about and talked about who Aung San Suu Kyi is, but he was being Will Farrel, and injected some humor in the process.

    On the other hand, Jennifer was acting like Rachel Green, is she really like that in real life? She did not come across as being serious and natural. And really showed that she doesnt know anything what is happenning in Burma!

    And what is weirder, she is acting like RAchel Green!

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

    It’s not an act. She IS Rachel Green. She stopped being Jennifer Aniston about 12 years ago.

    I meant to say this yesterday and forgot, but now that I see this Burma thing it reminds me – according to the new Star mag X is building an eco-friendly home in Malibu. Gee…wonder why she’s suddenly so interested in green building when she positively HATED Brad’s interests in architecture and the ecology. But…not to worry J-P Fans. X isn’t bitin’ off Brad’s MIR project. Her good and great friend Julia Roberts is the one who’s convinced her to care more for the earth she sits on to scream at the ocean.

    Right. As if. ROTFL. I bet Julia hasn’t spoken one word to X since she found out Brad dumped her. X is not someone JR would normally waste her time on if she weren’t married to a someone of her own stature in the industry.

  • Burma is a serious matter

    What is happening in Burma is a serious matter, people are being oppressed and Au san suu kyi has been imprisoned for years now. Aniston and Harrelson are total morons for making a comedy out of it!

  • HUH???

    lt’s try again…didn’t like my name okey dokey

    And AGAIN an joLIEspitt thread turns into Aniston, Aniston, Aniston, Asiton.bwahahahahaha…why don’t you people like brangeLIES. I thought you were fans…shame on you for not praising and worshiping them in their own thread but rather obsessing over a woman who has long since moved on with her life. bwahahaha LMFAO at you people.

    Did you get enough sleep last night, that you are repeating some BS you read in a British tabloid? Never believe anything you read in a Brit tabloid. They’re worse than the National Enquirer.

    If there is a wedding, you can bet your bottom dollar that Holly Goline will be Angelina’s maid of honor (as Angelina was for Holly), Brad’s brother will be his best man, James Haven will give his sister away, Jon Voight will not be in attendance, and the wedding will not take place on anyone’s zillion-dollar yacht.

  • well…

    rachel green’s burma psa @ 05/02/2008 at 9:47

    You make a good point.

    HUH??? @ 05/02/2008 at 10:00 am

    It’s fun to laugh as MANiston as she tries to be something she is not. Then to watch her fans go over the top to praise her and her choices. Like Mayer is so cute now. His kissing Perez was no big deal. Never mentioning the changes she made to her face. You all do anyway to show CHINnifer in a better light. Oh I did the caps just for your amusement.

  • calm down

    Jill @ 05/02/2008 at 10:09 am

    it is the same magazine who told they will have their baby in France,and in Allen’s ville,and guess what they were right.

    these days it seems Tabs have alot of private information from JP’s household,I won’t be surprised If it is true also.

  • the real lou

    calm down @ 05/02/2008 at 10:26 am ,Tabs know nothing when it comes to this couple.They said Shiloh was going to born in France,duh!They fact this couple likes France is NO big secret everyone knows this.BTW they baby hasn’t been born yet now has it?

    Thanks Jared for the new thread.Proud to be a fan of this couple!

  • New thread

    NEW thread

  • alia

    i’m not sure if the new thread is J/P or Clooney?

  • lurking

    Congrats to Brad and Angie!!!!!
    They’re a class by themselves. And by the way George Clooney is ranked at 71!!!!!!!

  • Honestly the deserve to be higher. They are a big influence around the world for positive. And I am an example.

    I am surprised about Milley Cyrrus and Mariah Carey. I simply don’t understand… What kind of people is influenced by these girl? Not that I dislike them, but… what’s the important contribution they do to humankind? Tthere are lots of celebrities doing nothing but appearing on tv and that’s all…

    You are right that psa was silly. Will’s was much better. Funny but also educational. X’s was just stupid. As if it was a SNL skit

  • Ali

    Definitely they should be higher because there is no “ego” or ambition in their humanitarian profile. The only three that have this lack of self-promotion are the Dalai Lama, the Pitt’s, and Mia Farrow. Everyone else is a politician – there is self, always saying me, me, me. Brad and Angelina have won my heart with how they lead their lives.

  • zoe

    yay for brangelina. i think being 21st is already really great. good for them. this is something that brangelina would actually care about
