Angelina Jolie is Always Mom-Centric

Angelina Jolie is Always Mom-Centric

Angelina Jolie takes her maternal identity seriously and told the LA Times lots of interesting tidbits about her life:

On her life’s focus: “The center of my life is my kids.”

On life just hours before presenting an award to Clint Eastwood: “I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies. I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job.”

On no signs of settling down in Hollywood: “I don’t dislike it here. I just really do love to travel. I love other cultures. And I love raising my kids in the world. I’m so fortunate that I get to do that.”

On Changeling helping her get pregnant with twins Knox and Vivienne: “I got pregnant right in the middle of [filming] and I think partially because of it. I was so emotional about children that I think something in me kicked into gear.”

    What a great women. Love you Angie you have my respect.


    she is crazy, brad pitt looks older since he become to be with angelina.
    There is a reason if George Clooney, her father and a lot of people can not stand her.

  • D. kay

    Now here’s the real deal……….A list movie star………Oscar, Brad Pitt adores her…, six wonderful kids who also think the sun shines outa her cute azz……Respect among her stellar peers……….more Oscar buzz for changeling…..pilot, humanitarian…….sexy………..most beautiful woman on the planet……

    So you see, when you are real and are coming from the ‘right’ place….things just work out naturally.

    But most of all, as Brad says, she is sweet, smart and a great mom. They are two really decent, kind people who deserved to find each other and create so much more happiness.

    Now if that callous, nasty x b..tch would just leave them the hell alone and just be content to live her plastic, new soul, existence. She’s as deep as a mud puddle and needs to disappear…I am sooooooo sick of seeing her and hearing her.

    Hey AG, love your post…humor and wit hitting the target precisely.
    “They ask her about John Mayer and in an effort to be this rah rah tough woman who knows how to handle business, she ends up looking like the biggest idiot on the surface of the earth.”

    “… Rotflmao! Only an idiot will take humiliation as badge of honor, which begs the question. . . .Honestly why do people think the opinion of this dolt matters??!!”

    One JA fan awhile back had an expose on how much she loved JA for her being the “rah rah tough woman” and admired her so much…so it’s all in the eye of the receiver but it tells a lot about the receiver aka the JA fan. Supporting her is one thing but being a “fan” begs another question.

  • zen2

    Ooooh ANGIE! I love you. You are so beautiful.

  • just asking

    Angie is on her way to Chicago to meet Jen. They’ll hug and make up. Just kidding!!! It might happen some day. Who knows?

    Maniston the Traniston’s pic on Vogue is so UGLY, she had to have Angelina Jolie’s NAME mentioned on the cover just to sell copies. Bahahahaha!!

  • jamies

    Brad Pitt tactics once again prevail.
    He was drinking and travelling, going out without his family and now he and his CAA agent set up angelina.
    Angelina burns downs in flames and Brad is smelling like a rose again.

    Oscar glory 2009.

  • sue

    Just go ahead and say it #8, She looks like a tranny and you know it. Her cheek bones look swollen. It’s probably after all the facial surgery she recently had. Her eyesbrows aren’t as arched and cheekbones are rounder. Her forehead is puffy too. No more vein and the strings holding her eyebrows up are gone. She needs to stop effing with her face, she will wind up looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein!

  • just asking

    I love VOGUE Magazine.

  • jamies

    Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd met and went ahead with their plan. Brad approved.
    He is all about trashing angelina while he goes clean.
    Oscar voters are watching.

  • Maria diamond

    Enough already with the mommy thing. You’re not the only woman on the planet with kids. Some actually do it under very bad conditions. And for a humanitarian who cares about the unfortunate she sure lives a life even more luxurious and extravagant than most celebrities or rich folk do….

  • emerton

    that’s it’s. back to the old AFTER THE OSCAR’S THAT THEY WILL BREAK UP. soooooooooooooooooo predictable. yes brad’s agent told him to been seen with angelina more as it will help u win an oscar. lol!!
    we all sometimes take a bad photo. even angelina when she is very tired.

    yes angelina must live in a mud hut and angelina has never given money or her time to help others in need.

  • emerton

    can’t have your break-up. what else shall u moan at. looks, being a mother and fake charity. yep

  • sue

    lordy, lordy, cliniqua. You need to step back and look at the tranny pictured in the above photo. If anyone looks like a man, it’s buck-toothed , bear trap jaw ,Manjawlina. LOL

  • Val

    Brad did not get old, he is looking natural…a hard working father of 6 children. I believe with Jen he probably had some botox injections done and with Angie he can be himself.

    He is 44 years old, how is he supposed to he is 20? Please guys give me a break. At least he is staying true to who he is and not going around having plastic all over the place!

    Stop hating people you do not know, they are not losing any sleep over you.

    Like I said before, Angie and Brad probably laughed so hard last night while making love that Brad forgot to pull out.

    So now one year later Angie will have an interview where she states that she got pregnant the night she read Jennifers 2008 vogue issue!

  • alekziel

    She is so lovely in her comments. Always her kids, her Brad, her work.

    Jennifer who?

    Its so nice watching Brad and Angie doing their things, minding their own business and don’t giving a s h i t about losers and haters AT ALL.

    Angie and Brad, you always have us, your fans to support you!

  • sue

    YIKES! That is a terrible picture. She seriously looks like a man.

  • luvangie4ever

    I’ll always love Angelina…. :) And I love her for the beautiful person she is inside and the way she carries herself. There will never be another like her and she is and will always be one of the legendary actresses of all time.

  • Val

    Why should they not enjoy their wealth. Hey I am a regular Certified Public Accountant and I enjoy the little I do make.

    Only jealous people criticize those who make an honest living and chose to live the good life because of it. At least they donate money, lots of it actually.

    Please if I had that money…only God knows what I would be doing!

    So be true to yourself haters, do not act like you never fell for someone that was in a relationship, or you have never sinned or would not travel the world if you had the opportunity to.

    Please if you cannot be honest with yourself, then who can you be honest to?

    D. kay @ 11/12/2008 at 2:05 pm

    I too wish someone would tell all on Aniston. According to folks who have worked with her and some pap gossip she is a heavy weed smoker (which pictures have shown), uses heavier drugs, and cheated on Brad during the marriage. Rumors? Who knows. But would be nice if someone had the scoop in order to knock her off her self-proclaimed pedestal of pity.
    I love how people rag on Angie about not speaking to her dad, but it is okay that Jen doesn’t speak to her mom. People rag on Angie about her lips, but ignore Jen’s plastic surgery. I could go on and on. Such a double standard.
    However, Jen is losing her A list status fast as her movies bomb and her photos sell less magazines etc. Maybe she’ll get to a b or c list status and someone will write the book!



    She and her PR team are using Angelina, much as she’s used ‘Brangelina,’ these last 4 years to sell herself. If you’ve noticed, almost every single mag, infers a connection to ‘Brangelina,’ or Brad (Happy at Last, Stronger at Last, Happiness is The Best Revenge, Over the Pain, A new Life for Jen, etc.) all sickening platitudes designed to REMIND you she’s firmly attached to Pitt & Jolie’s coattails, and to remind all just how much Brad Pitt hurt her, by wanting to end it.

    Of COURSE, when you’re reminded of THAT, you are also reminded of who Brad Pitt is with now — the evil seductress and culprit Angelina, whose only ACTUAL crime was being the woman Brad Pitt fell in love with NEXT.

    As far as some of you women claiming Angelina deserved this vague critique from Aniston about a harmless comment Jolie made 2 whole years ago — how so? I read Jolie’s Vogue in Jan 2007, I thought it was a poised, and gracious interview. There was NO detailed timeline, because as Perez Hilton establishes so well, Aniston is lying and making things up. Jolie simply described how their friendship formed – it was brief and a couple sentences.

    Since Aniston and her friends/lackeys, had already told Vanity Fair back in 2006 that they knew Pitt and Jolie had a sincere friendship, it seems to me that Aniston is once again, proving what scheming liars she and her PR team are.

    I guess I don’t get what she’s inferring by saying such and such was ‘uncool’ to say – so Angelina doesn’t have a right to discuss how she and Brad’s friendship evolved? Is she saying that Angelina shouldn’t have discussed how she and Pitt became friends in the onslaught of jealous haters and tabloids accusing her of things she and Pitt didn’t do?? Surely, you can’t be saying that Angelina, Brad’s love and the mother of his children can’t ever talk about their father, for fear Jen Aniston will be annoyed?? hahaha. You b*tches are crazy!!

    But the best part? Well, well, well…it seems Aniston thinks Brad is amazing, admirable, and she’s PROUD of him! Oh really now?!! Um, would someone PLEASE explain to me, WHY in God’s name a woman who was cheated on and cruelly dumped for another woman..think flowery, lovely and oh-so-wonderful things about a man that did THAT to them?? Hmmm. Answer: Of course she would NOT, because Pitt didn’t DO them. So it seems to me, if you take Aniston at her WORDS (hard to do I know), then you have to conclude that she’s ONLY now fabricating a made-up beef with one of the most scintillating exciting and biggest movie stars of all time, Angelina Jolie, JUST to coast on her coattails and get the same kind of ‘Brangelina/Angelina’ inspired press, that she’s coasted on for 5 years. It HAS to be THAT…she can’t think Brad is the best thing since sliced bread and then hate on Jolie. That makes no sense.

    Are you haters maintaining that Jen, has just said to herself, ‘Oh Brad, you are such an amazing admirable man that i’m proud of, that I will forgive you for wanting to leave me for Angelina Jolie, the woman you cheated on me with, or at least lured you away from me at the drop of a hat. You are just too too too AMAZING, for me to hold a grudge anymore. I will just hate Angelina instead.’ LMAO

    Is that what you think haters??

    It seems to me, you either have to think it never happened, and Brad never did anything wrong – or you have to be insane haters who give the sit-com hack carte blanche to say anything she wants, even when it’s lies and contradictions.

    If you come to the obvious conclusion, that no one is to blame, that Brad is a terrific guy (like Aniston says), then you have to conclude also that Aniston criticizing a two year old comment about becoming friends while doing crazy stunts, is ONLY A PR GENERATED PLOY, set up in the pink boardroom of Stephen Huvane (much like the John Gayer contracts) to KEEP Aniston in the tabloids.

    This new beef will probably get Aniston another whole year or two of tabloid coverage. Mission accomplished Huvane!! LOL :lol: Already the ‘run-ins,’ and ‘showdowns,’ have started — most recently with that Gossip Girls column, and their snark that Angie ‘did’ Brad on set. Wow. Thanks for the gift that keeps on giving to the tabloids Jennifer. They should just write you nice big fat check.

    It will be funny listening to the Jenloons a year from now, trying to convince themselves that Jen ‘never mentions the JPs,’ much like they did in the several months and years that followed her ‘tell all,’ Vanity Fair where she told Pitt’s personal private business and dissed Angie’s humanitarianism, maddox and Zahara. They love pretending that never happened. face it, the genesis of all this tabloid toxic bullshit, is the TV sh*tcom TOXIC actress.

  • luvangie4ever

    JUST JARED, thank you for all the Angelina threads, I love you for that! :D But could you please, please, please, remove the last two Jennifer Aniston’s threads from the Angelina Jolie archives? I honestly don’t think they belong there. Thanks!

  • Maria diamond

    I suppose people would stop hating them, if they stopped promoting themselves so much. Just read some of the comments and the blind adoration she gets from fans. This for a woman who used (still does?) to french kiss her brother, wore blood vials around her neck, went through drugs and alchohol like they were candy and God knows what else before she even turned 30.

    The interesting thing is that people actually believe whatever comes out of her mouth.

  • Faye88

    Cliniqua – This one is for you. I found this movie review online, and thought you might get a nice laugh out of it. I had originally posted it in the last Angie thread to stay away from X on this thread. But since this thread has already been invaded by X fans. What the hell! Here you go….

    Changeling (2008)

    Movie was worth the trip But…
    Nov 12, 2008
    There was a scene at the mental institution where a disturbed woman who looked like “Aniston” who screams at Angelina “this is my room”. If that was done purposely, Clint Eastwood-That’s stinkin cheap!

  • yolly

    Fans who met & seen Angie in person said she is way too beautiful in person than the pictures. Not to mention her character too is beautiful.

  • …………………………

    oh i can’t wait till tht person break tool emerton’s heart, please let it happen soon! i want to see her whimpering like her old-duckling or whimpering like a poor chihuahua left by her master. please guy do it soon, i want to her to feel tht pain so bad!….for only the pain will make her half-human. plzzzzzz….dumped her imediately!

  • Moore

    From the New York Times:

    Despite Ms. Jolie’s hard work and Mr. Eastwood’s scrupulous attention, [Jolie's] difficult, fairly one-dimensional character fails to take hold.

    Worth the trip? Hardly…..

  • jamies

    Brad Pitt would do anything for his oscar. He, Bryan Lourd and Kevin Huvane knew about Vogue and went ahead.
    Brad doesn’t care about angelina or jen he cares about Brad.

    babble, babble srcaping the barrell. yes angelina still french kisses her brother. you are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo right. keep bringing up the past babe, it just shows how much angelina has grown as a person and why i actually like her more, as she turned her life around for good

  • jamies

    You know who the winner is in all this? CAA that’s who.

    By using Angelina’s name, Aniston has garnered publicity for her 30 Rock appearance this week, her smart water project (you know the one for which she went to the Ivy) and her movie coming out in December. So in the same week that she takes Angelina down in flames, she gets to showcase her comedic talent, her budding humanitarianism and whets the public’s appetite for her X-mas day movie. Don’t you find it just a bit too coincidental that the tabs would have details of her upcoming Vogue interview just in time for publication?

    Brad on the other hand, gets a chance at an Oscar. His campaign just got a lot easier with Angelina’s chances diminishing by the day. All he has to do now is to avoid being photographed with her (he already has the avoid talking about Angelina part down pat), and then he’ll be home free. I wonder if Angie will show up to the TCCOBB US premiere or will she or one of the kids be conveniently sick with the flu or some other ailment?

    I am sure both Pitt and Aniston pay a lot of money to their handlers at CAA and as you can see they are getting their money’s worth. This is great advertising for them. Sign with us and the sky’s the limit!

    The only loser in all this? Angelina Jolie. She is the one that wears her heart on her sleeve and is the least deserving of the manipulations of these 2 cowards. But you know what? At the end of the day, Brad may get his Oscar nod but still go home without that little golden statue. And Angie will have finally seen his true colors, thank God. She will also STILL be an Oscar winner who got the prize without all the machinations that are now threatening to make a pariah of her.

    My hope is that sometime in the new year, Angie will be free of this mealy-mouthed $hithead, who co-opted HER humanitarian credentials (after SHE spent years going out in the field). Her children will be fine and she finally won’t be in the tabloids 48 out of the 52 weeks of the year because of her association with that dimwitted pothead. I’m sure her life will be a LOT LESS stressful.



    maria diamond aka sh*tzy – shut your trap you fat old 40-10 wh*re – bahahaha.

    No one would know jacksh*t about Angelina and her teen cutting and drug use had they not heard it from the woman herself – so quit trying to Lohan her, and pretend she used to be on the cover of rags and mags passed out or some such sh*t. Angie decided to be woman enough to share her adolescent and post adolescent issues in her interviews, to help others — and to show they can be strong enough to overcome their personal difficulties. She grew up, adopted a child at 24, and her self-destructive days (as she related them to the public) were over. You wouldn’t know d*ck had Angie not told you, you ugly hater pig. lol

    Angelina was also married from 19-26, she met Brad at 28. Try fitting the football team that Chin ‘you need to be f*ckable’ Maniston has had in her 40 years on earth as a cow who was an easy lay (yeah, go to smoking gun and read about the writers who used to bang her in exchange for a few extra lines on Friends…hahahaha) in Angie’s small window. you can’t do it – Jolie told Babs Walters the number of people she’s been with she could count on one hand. Meanwhile Maniston has had Vince Vaughn’s, Sculfor, Brian Bama, John Gayer, Bradley cooper and others whole arms up her gigantic twa.t just in the last 2 years. Ahahahaha. What’s hella funny is that she’s been brutally dumped by all of them! Hahahaha. :lol: Which is easily explained when you look at that Vogue cover, MAN – the horror…if that b*tch is NOT the lovechild of Phyllis Diller and Dustin Hoffman I don’t know who is. No wonder when Brad met Angie, she shook his hand and he came – look at the mannish tran he was held captive by for 4 years. Hahahahaha :-D

  • lol

    Don’t you think you have trashed this woman in the name of brad pitt and jennifer aniston enough already? How much more does this woman have to take from Brad and his paid workers? what do you want from her?

    A beautiful person inside?She is trying to prove to the public that she is a good person inside. She said it herself. Running around being the faux humanitarian. She talks to much. I don’t see other stars bragging about this and that..Gawd, she opens her big enormous lips spilling the beans about their onscreen love affair. That is probably why Brad is keeping his distance from her.He is pissed!She is box office poison and he has got a mega film coming up that can’t bomb. . I am SOOOO glad that Jennifer Aniston finally said something about the serial homewrecker. Kudos to her. I hope she tells more.

    LA Times…

    To see this film is to understand both how fragile and how essential our hopes for decency and truth are in a world that must be made to care about either one.

    Collins refuses to buckle. Instead, she gets increasingly frantic, wild that time that could be spent finding her son is being squandered, and it is this edge of anxiety that is the heart of Jolie’s deeply felt performance.
    Eye of the beholder…

  • Jill

    Guys, check out the hilarious cover story in Star Mag this week about Jenny-poo’s apoplectic reaction at Brad’s “public diss” of her on Oprah’s interview which will be aired on November 17.

    Seems Brad made the unforgiveable boo-boo of saying he is happier with Angelina and the kids than he has ever been in his life. Whiny is pissed because Brad never said nice things like that about HER when he was married to her. She is just prostrated with indignation that Brad could say something like that and disregard the four years he spent married to her.

    Well I hate to tell ya, Jenny-poo, but maybe Brad sees those years like a long nightmare he finally woke up from when he met Angelina.

    You had your chance and blew it. The better woman won.

    Now go stock up on Kleenex and throw yourself another pity party. It’s the only thing you’re good at any more.

  • Maria diamond

    CLINIQUA you’re one sick puppy.

    Keep calling people fat bitches. That will get your argument through. Your post only proves what I said earlier. Blind adoration for a woman who knows how to manipulate her image and tries to re-write history to accommodate her needs. It is not Angelina’s fault for the bad press, it is Brad’s fault because he wants an Oscar…. responsibility transferred, work well done.

    All hail Saint Angelina.

    Maria diamond @ 11/12/2008 at 2:32 pm

    Poor thing…

    1) What’s the problem with Angelina kissing her brother in the lips at Oscars? Javier Bardem did the same thing with his mother, Travolta did the same to Kirk Douglas in some awards last year and lots of people kiss their family members in the lips. Do you have a problem with all this people or is just Angelina? :lol: It’s not Angelina’s fault that you have a dirty, sick mind.

    2) Why do you people keep repeating this lie? :lol: Angelina never wore a vial in her neck. It was a beautifull necklace that had a thing were you pressed your finger and fingerprinted after you made a small cut. There’s a video on Youtube where she showns it to Larry King. Go and see it a stop making a fool of yourself.

    3) Yes, Angelina tried drungs and you know it because she told it, like with everything in her life she doesn’t hide it. She did it when she was growing up, like many adolescenses and young adults do. She made the same mistakes and went through the same pains that most of adolescenses and young adults all over the world go through.

    4) You want to know what she was doing before 30? At 25 years old she was on her first humanitarian mission to Sierra Leon and at 26 she had adopted Maddox. Oh, and she had already accomplished everything in her career as an actress. What had you done (or do) at 25/26 years old?

    Angelina is not perfect nor she tries to be, but at the age of 33 she is already a remarkable woman.

    Oprah is next. Brad is ok with jen running her mouth and dissing angelina.

    Brad doesn’t give a damn how many times Aniston makes a fool of herself dissing Angelina. He’s got Angelina and that’s all he cares about. He knows very well that nobody except Aniston’s demented fans give a tin sh*t what she says about anything any more.


    I am buying that Star jill. I suggest others do same. let them know there’s a whole new market if they want it – appeal to the Brange fans and they will be in the green.

    Maniston is a pathetic washed up loser. i think she’s going for broke, I can smell the desperation on Maniston. She’s throwing all her rules out the window…notice after referring to Brad as ‘he who shall not be named,’ in several interviews for the past few years, all of a sudden she now is saying it wasn’t ‘that bad,’ and that she really ‘can’t remember it,’ and that Brad is amazing and admirable. There have been mag after mag where she tells the interviewer not to refer to him, and yet infers things about them throughout her disingenuous famewh*ring articles. Hahahha. I mean whatever happened to her taking Fishyth’s advice to NOT talk about her relationships anymore, EVER…hmmm?? In the Vogue piece (which I’d advise everyone to read online and not buy) she mentions ‘em ALL….Brad, Vaughn, and now Mayer – even getting into the nitty gritty about getting dumped!! Hahaha (‘oh he HAD to be the one to say he broke up with me, I’m not just ‘some girl!’ — no maniston, you’re NOT, what you are is ‘some OLD WOMAN,’ LMAO!!) This woman is a walking lying hypocritical desperate PANTLOAD. What a dumb as a stump hypocrite that ugly b*tch Aniston is.

  • hmmm

    Maria diomond, all hail saint brad the man who was dating a 16 year old when he was 26. If angelina’s past is brought up why not bring up brad’s ?
