    But Jared isnt this a bit desperate?You are not even pretending to be biased when it comes to Brangelina anymore, she tops the list?Are you serious?She is freaking 24th on the list, not even in top 10, so how does that grant an Angelina Jolie Title post?

    Or do you just love putting her name so all the drama gets started, blah.

    I hear yuour pain, sicko, and it is laughable.

    I guess ANGELINA JOLIE reminds you acutely of your inadeqaucies as a woman, huh? Too bad so sad. Dont feel too special, cos Angie has this effect on women with low self-esteem…….y’know, like you and the x.

    Just keep on squirming, baby.

    Idiot, Jared is correct, Angelina is the top Showbiz actress! Oprah is no 1 as an executive of her coy and not as an actress, the rest of the women are film executives or other top HW moguls.

  • passing Through

    ROTFLMAO! Angie’s the only actress on the list…until you get to X’s newest fascination – little Miley Cyrus at #100… Gosh…X is gonna be mad. Hannah Montana made the list and she didn’t. That’s why she’s so fascinated with Hannah. Hannah’s got skillz…and she don’t.

  • mike

    Nicole Number 8: She does top the list….the list of actresses…..if you go look at the list no actresses are listed until her…..just political and business women, etc…..and oprah of course…..but angie is the first actress listed….so she tops the list of actresses :)

  • Ms.JOLIE4ever!

    Angie is the greatest actress I ‘ve ever experienced.

  • WOW

    She’s blessed l love the way she keep doing her thing.She is a very strong woman.

  • Frenchy

    Ok…It really doesn’t matter to me. she’s just cool and that’s enough! LOL!!!

  • Bella

    Way to go Baby Ange! Who can top that?? the x? ha! LMAO:)

  • Maria (Shorty)


  • REbecca

    Considering she doesn’t live a Hollywood lifestyle or always prancing about Hollywood…She still works and is influential. Get this all you younger actresses, if you are constantly pictured coming and going to this club and that club it means you are not working which means you are not in demand.

  • Can Never Deny It

    Oprah’s NUMERO UNO, not Angelina. Angie does not top the list.

  • Lady G

    Way to go Angie!!!

    My girl Angie ROCKS!!!!

  • Angelove

    Just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her. Go Angie.

  • The Jolie

    SALT 20 MILLION you see why she said she can afford to do one film a year.

  • Domino

    Oh my God that woman is so ugly. :( I can’t stop staring at her horse teeth, except horses ARE pretty. >.<

  • Mondo Bongo!


  • casey

    I love these lilttle nuggets of info found on JJ. While the mainstream entertainment media is fawning over the likes of C list people, the meat and potatoes of the industry can be found on places like here and the Hollywood Reporter.

  • aeon

    That’s right show Angie some love and respect. She really should be at $25Mil just like her husband. But since she hasn’t worked in a while and has been busy with motherhood it is okay by me. What other actress in Hollywood movie has ever grossed over $1 billion in one year (not Kate and Titanic)? Only male actors do that The Jolie is redefinying the role of actresses in Hollywood no wonder they are afraid of her. Go Angie Go, hell yeah.

  • sHE IS IT

    She kEeps rising above everything.YOU GO GIRL

    Domino @ 12/05/2008 at 1:17 pm

    Have you ever seen her in person face to face? I have and all I have to say is that you obviously have severe cataracts.

    Fortunately cataracts can be removed in about an hours time with only one day of recovery then you’re good to go.

  • just lurking

    Oprah is not considered and actress but she is in entertainment .

  • tizzy

    Are you all who keep saying she’s not no 1 have paralysed brains or or perhaps you have turds in the place of a brain. She is No1 in terms of being the top actress on the list. Now repeat slowly ‘she is not No 1 on the entire list but she is the No1 actress on the list’ Keep repeating it and it should finally sink in.


    Just gorgeous !!!!…..I have always LOVED Angie…..She is so lucky to have a wonderful and doting partner ( and handsome )….AND, many beautiful children whom she obviously adores !

  • aeon

    I agree French fcuker name Domino is blind as a bat needs glasses or cataract laser surgery. This guy/girl is ignant (ignorant) as they say in the South (US).
    Angie is gorgeous…

    Shiloh is in the movie, so I don’t believe she watched it, she is a big fake liar.

    I think X saw part of CCOBB when she vacationed in Mexico and David Fincher was there. Im sure David was working on editing of Brad’s movie and have shown part of it to Courtney, David and X. Thats she has seen only one hour of the movie not the whole movie.


    As I said yesterday – Fincher is friends with the Coquettes. Whatever parts of the movie X saw, she probably saw at their house. That time in Mexico was another of the Coquette vacays that X invited herself on. That’s why the pix of her at the pool with Fincher and the other guy were so damned funny. Because NEITHER of them were paying the least pit of attention to her while she had her bikini top undone, legs and butt hiked up in the air, legs splayed open toward where she knew the ratzi were…the whole nine yards. Fincher acted like she wasn’t even there. I’m sure that irked her….

  • O YES




  • Randi

    That’s cause she such a friggin’ BITCH!!

    Good morning to all BAMPZSKV fans. I hope everyone has a happy Friday.

    Ohmygawd, the good news just keeps coming in for the jolie. I hear screaming and gnashing of teeth. I saw it listed on the CNN crawl this morning. And I knew their would be angry trolls flying out of control on their brooms around JJ’s.

    Lawdy, lawdy, if only there was some way we could just keep the good news coming 24/7. Then if we could drill a hole in their skulls and laser in good news. It is a new type of torture called good news torture. It could work. Peace

  • gloria

    Having a woman like Angelina as a roll model is exactly what’s wrong with America today. She may do good deeds but she is so immoral as can be. Took another person’s husband, does not marry her children’s father….yeah, Angelina, she’s someone to really look up to…..NOT! Momma’s, don’t let your girls grow up to be like Angelina! JMO!

  • cook

    Hola! Bonjour! Hi haterz…the champ is here…

    gloria @ 12/05/2008 at 1:48 pm -by clicking you make her powerful.LOL.

    As for stealing Brad cant you see that whinning about it for 4 years is exactly the reason people are on Angelina’s side.

  • Sicko2

    I am sick of seeing her face. Muchie Munchie.

    Wow these supersized burgers are sooo good!

  • aeon

    Randi and Gloria Get OFF the blogs the image of morality should come from actors and actress but PARENTS. BE your own kids idol and leave the rest alone it is not up to you to judge. And by the way fcuk off Angie didn’t steal anybody husband Jen said it herself. STFU and get off the blogs and become a model for your own kids.

  • aeon

    Sicko 1 and 2 with your multiple personalities, we are sick of you too do the world a favor and flame out already. Get off her thread or give up the blog it quite simple.

  • herald

    And I am getting sick of the crazy hollywood world…

    But I still like and support Angelina and Brad,
    They are the very few that are worth to know about.

    And, yes, Academy members are shown special screenings around the country for films in Oscar contention. They are the full length movies. At times the director or some of the stars participate in the screening. You can google for the schedules – they are shown from Hawaii to the East Coast. And, of course, members also used to get DVD/Videos of the movies. I’m not sure anymore if they revived that process. There was a big issue about it a few years ago when the major studios decided not to send the screeners to members claiming piracy issues. An interesting law suit arose out of it. Some people claim that rather than piracy it was a ploy to keep members from seeing the smaller, independent movies ( which were beginning to dominate the Oscars ) since the screeners were the only way some members would ever see the smaller movies which obviously show in fewer theaters and for a more limited time. I’m not sure what is going on with screener DVDs now. There are only a limited number of screens and places in L.A., for instance, that are available to show the films in contention during the Oscar race period.

    But it is a joke how some people can garner an invite. I remember when Aniston was invited there were howls of derisive laughter and disbelief from the more serious film community and the film discussion boards. But then I think some of the other “Friends” were already members like Lisa Kudrow.

    As for Aniston claiming she only saw an hour of BB – Fincher had put together a short screening that was shown at one of the film fests to give people a taste of what he was working on. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t before he had completed all aspects of the film. I saw some reviews of the shortened version earlier this year. Maybe that’s what she saw. There is no way that she wouldn’t want to see Brad interacting with Shiloh if she had the chance. That


    Two comments –

    1. As far as I know the Academy hasn’t relented on sending out the DVDs. There really was a piracy issue – still is, as a matter of fact. That’s why you don’t hear about a whole lot of movie openings and grosses for China. Before the movie can play their it’s long since been pirated and sold on DVD. One of the profs at work is from China. She went back for a symposium or something back at the end of May. She came back and told me all about The Dark Knight! She saw a DVD bootleg in her hotel! TDK didn’t come out in the States until almost 6 weeks later! Some of her lab techs are from China, too. One time I got a call from the networking folks saying I had a user who was streaming massive amounts of data – gigs worth – and for me to investigate what the person was doing. They shut his port down. I go look at the machine…they guy was streaming movies from a Chinese peer-to-peer network. NEW MOVIES…not old ones. Movies that hadn’t even been released here yet. These pirates are so bold they steal these movies AND ADD CHINESE SUBTITLES TO THEM! LOL.Sad but true… Ummm…needless to say this didn’t go over well with his boss…or the networking folks. Not a fireable offense, but it did cause us to restrict his internet access…

    2. The clips Fincher put together was only 20 minutes long and he did it for the retrospective of his work at the Telluride Film Festival. That’s when the not-so great reviews were spreading. Fincher actually had to issue a statement and say that the clips he chose were random and not indicative of the movie as a whole. He choose them to talk about various aspects of filmmaking, not to really showcase the movie.

    Like I said twice before – Fincher is friends with the Arquettes – David to be precise. IIRC I read that they’re ganja buddies…and were before Brad was stupid enough to marry X. So David knew Fincher…and Brad knew Fincher…and like everything else of significance in X’s life she only knows Fincher because he was friends with people she knows or married. Notice how X has no worthwile associations of her own? THAT is why she has no power in Hollywood. Er…I guess you could consider the Huvane bros. “significant” but if they keep spending all their time pimping her Kevin will have other clients at CAA and Steven will have other clients to lie to the media about.

    Not only that ! They don’t like lying aging smoking hooker who lure men on the first date, brag about it on TV when they are still somantically linked to another one, then lie in front of America about having a baby, then saying nasty things about their husband in front oF America, then shedding crocodile tears about him after being caught banging another man 3 weeks after the divorce paper were signed…that same teen woma, who likes to be linked to men who are child abuser and who like to lure young dogs with skat tendencies not only once but twice in a row…Some woman DESERVE to be dumped when they are evil and bad with their man who only have drugs, alcohool or therapy to escape that living nigthmare….Maniston is among those rare breed. Going out with her is like a life sentence in jail….hence they all flee as soon as they can, wether through therapy, free times apart her, drugs, booze, or another REAL woman !

  • luvcats

    gloria if jolie stole brad then then be smart and tell aniston to sue her! or go call the police to rescue brad pitt from the hands of the jolie! -i think he enjoys being stolen and don’t hv any regrets or plans to come back. how about you stealing john mayer from her?…don’t you love golden showers?

  • elaine

    “ANGIE JO”. It’s your time to shine. Congratulations! I rarely comment on this site, but I would really love to see you guys married, if you are not already.
