Angelina Jolie's W Magazine Photo Spread Revealed

Angelina Jolie's W Magazine Photo Spread Revealed

W Magazine has published a bunch of the photos of Angelina Jolie and the kids, as photographed by longtime partner Brad Pitt. You can view them at (You have to click through the eight slides in the Flash slideshow.) Here are some choice excerpts from the cover article:

– Every family has its unique rites of passage, those generational milestones that mark a child’s growth and remind parents of their own similar experiences, years earlier. In the Jolie-Pitt household, one such event is the day a kid begins collecting daggers. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s seven-year-old son, Maddox, like many boys his age, has lately developed a fondness for guns and knives, and Jolie proudly notes that the predilection runs in the family. “My mom took me to buy my first daggers when I was 11 or 12,” she recalls. “And I’ve already bought Maddox some things. We take him to a special shop.” She emphasizes that the knife blades are dulled so they’re not dangerous, and that the purchases are accompanied by discussions about violence. But, she says, “we also talk about samurais and about the idea of defending someone as good. We talk about everything.”

– If Jolie has a favorite possession, she says, it’s the overstuffed Tumi case that holds the family’s travel documents: Vietnamese, Namibian, Ethiopian, French and American passports, plus her own UN credentials.

– The Jolie-Pitt bedroom, of course, remains off-limits to journalists. And sometimes even to kids, Jolie declares. “The kids do knock before entering,” she says. “We’ve at least got that part down. Because Mommy and Daddy need some space.”

    Greetings Lylian,
    “God knows who YOU or I have sat with in committees, gone to dinner with in work related functions, perhaps even had an occasional lunch with over the years of our lives.”

    It was more than being on committee groups, it was an arranged fund raising event(s) for Obama held at their at their Hyde Park home. As a candidate for a serious government office, Obama and his advisors would have known who they were and the potential implications of their past to an elected official and impact on his constituency. Just because individuals have higher education and professional degrees doesn’t vindicate a violent reckless past that included being responsible for innocent death and they have no remorse for the death they caused.
    It is also not unusual for the University community to accept and be tolerant of extreme idealism…that has been their general premise as part of “learning and education”…but this should not be construed as a green-light to glorify them.
    He may be respected for his work but as a person Ayres is not as respected and distinguished as you imply. He is tolerated by many and has been rejected from participating in many educational forums because of his current day advocacy of violence as part of his political discourse.

  • WTF???

    Who the hell lets there 7 year old play with guns and knives??? I don’t care if she gives them “lectures” before handing them weapons but that is SERIOUSLY SOOOOO WRONGGGG!!!

    Best of the New York Film Festival
    By Lisa Collins, Staff

    From missing children to toppled regimes to jittery driver’s ed, this year’s 46th New York Film Festival pulled out the big guns, in its very “New York” way, blending American and foreign, mainstream and indie into one tasty smorgasboard.

    But let’s face it, the main dish steals the show when the likes of a beaming Angelina Jolie and beau Brad Pitt walk the red carpet to join the festivities–with Angie making her first public outing since birthing the twins. Go gurl!

    While cameras flashed off the hook for Mlle Jolie–who headlines Clint Eastwood’s buzz drama the Changeling–NYFF screenings, premieres and events have also continued to usher in the riveting talents of: Benicio Del Toro, Michelle Williams, Mickey Rourke, Amy Ryan, Marisa Tomei, Steven Soderbergh, to name a few.’s been workin’ it at the ongoing Fest which promises, again, to deliver a sneak peek at the hottest upcoming fall releases and Oscar hopefuls. Come, partake–here are a few standouts that caught our eye:


    Landing in Theaters: October 31

    Who’s in It: Angelina Jolie, Amy Ryan, John Malkovich, Jeffrey Donovan

    Who Directed It: Clint Eastwood

    What’s It about: Los Angeles,1928: A true story about a single mother, telephone operator (Angelina Jolie), who descends into a nightmare, when her son vanishes from their suburban home. An exhaustive, fruitless search ensues, entangling her in a swirl of LAPD corruption, when officials insist on passing-off another boy as her still M.I.A. son.

    What You’ll Love: Jolie’s quiet, simmering anger that builds into a crescendo over the police corruption that she confronts is matched by Eastwood’s slow, confident build in presenting a period-specific, provocative story.

    Clint Eastwood Says: “I didn’t know too much about the [kidnapping] incident and I was surprised that I hadn’t heard about it because it was such an unusual event in L.A., which historically has had a lot of crazy situations; but this one–I didn’t know anything until I read the script.”

  • black

    She should not discuss private stuff like this—–it makes her look stupid.

    ———Please—-keep your family stuff private——————–

  • äänsky

    The photos are amazing.

  • indiesr

    OMG, I cant wait to see the full issue. I love the full black with baby and hat. Angelina is georgous, and the one with Shi and Pax, I love them all. :)

  • bdj

    One cannot be tired of a celebrity(i.e. 5 pictures of Katie walking per day) and then go to the extreme measure of commenting on them. This just shows a perverse fascination.

  • sara

    I am tired of them and so are the people in Louisana, from another report on another board it’s very interesting.

  • sara

    I agree # 15 keep what you do with your kids private.

  • my take…

    I do not “believe” that Angie and Brad are “letting” their sons “play” with these objects, it sounds as if the boys’- Maddox inparticular has a very normal boyish interest in these items, it goes back to the old saying if you do not allow your children to explore their interests in all things, with sound “advice” to back it up, then the interest may become “dark” and all-encompassing( if you don’t allow a healthy interest, say in guns, a young boy will ultimately pick up a stick and pretend it’s a gun, nonethless)… sounds like the boys’ are interested in these things and they are allowing that interest to take shape with sound advice (weapons are not for hurting, etc.) to teach them that difference. It also sounds like they are maybe starting a collection as well… doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, especially for those of us who have and are around boys’… my opinion…

  • erica

    I believe that brangelina may be in danger of being overexposed.

    Heard that rumor about Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis getting married? Yeah, so has she. And no, it’s not true.

    “Each summer people say we’re supposed to be getting married, but we don’t talk about it that much,” Paradis – Depp’s girlfriend of 10 years and the mother of his two children – tells the U.K. edition of Elle in its November issue. “He’s got me, and he knows he’s got me.”

    horrible like ever

    The people of Hollywood would like make propaganda of yourself.
    They don’t help nobody!

  • bdj

    Okay sara is getting ready to spam the thread. Too funny.

  • LORI

    I’m with a few of these posters…I’m sick to death of these two. I bet if Saint Angelina ran for pres, she’d win…everyone is so engulfed in her every move.
    Further more, If Brad is taking such intimate photos of his family, isn’t that pimping out his family??? Every photo in this spread is oscar worthy. Seriously, no one has ever taken such personal photos of my family, including my husband or I. The picutres look like her portfolio for a modeling job, kids in tow.

    Brad takes lovely pictures … probably because he has lovely subjects to shoot; i’m sure brad also took pics of his oldest daughter, but they failed to include them in the slide-show . . . guess we’ll have to wait for the magazine.

    News from Berlin

    Yesterday, Pitt and Family have landed in Germany. This is the news about them, and their villa, which has some new touch.

    Dated 10/13/2008


    VIP’s pair Nr.1 of Hollywood is again in Germany.

    After a good 10-day round trip with the stations New York, New Orleans and the South of France Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and her six children are back at her source place Berlin.

    Yesterday Brangelina with their “appendix” landed in a private jet on airport Tegel and brought in a darkened minibus to their rented Wannsee villa.
    “Chief of the Family” Brad will stand in front of the camera around for Quentin-Tarantino-Film ‘Inglorious Bastards’, a Remake from a Kino-Classic ‘Ein Haufen verwegener Hunde’.

    All together the stay of the Jolie-Pitts should last in Berlin about three months. And while Angelina commented in US media very positively about Berlin (” Thus a peaceful town fond of children “), nevertheless, the pair lays value on the greatest possible bulkheading.

    The inter temporal absence of the VIP’s family from the “Palais Parkschloss” was used by a security company almost to double the view protection running around the villa of opaque, green tarpaulin temporarily from 2.50 meters at 4.50-meter height.

    Thus the property entrance looked on the 24th September, 2008:

    How the entrance looked yesterday, points after the click at ” whole announcement “.

    # 12 WTF??? @ 10/13/2008 at 10:25 am Who the hell lets there 7 year old play with guns and knives??? I don’t care if she gives them “lectures” before handing them weapons but that is SERIOUSLY SOOOOO WRONGGGG!!!
    Who said they are letting them play with them unsupervised?

    When we were kids, we learned how to handle guns, bows and arrows and knives. Mostly at a shooting range although my brother did archery competition for a while.

    I know he used knives in scouting.

    No one “put their eye out” and no one grew up to be a “killer”, or even a hunter. We were always supervised and learned that weapons, if used capriciously will kill.

    Adorable!!. Love her.
    Thanks JJ for the new thread.
