  • hottest couple ever

    He’s jokking, of course.

  • Julia

  • alekziel

  • nikki

  • Amanda

  • Idani

    a) Jared we get–Katie is 30!
    and
    b) The paramedics were called to the home next to the Jolie Pitts, not the Jolie-Pitt house.

  • d.kay

    you can only dream, Ben.

  • Bella

    I guess he is looking for some publicity he is not halfe of jolie….please

  • He was KIDDING, dummies.

    The guy was JOKING, damn. He was paying her and the UN a compliment, HELLO?? I mean, sheeeIT..it just goes to show how much star power she does have, when his little throwaway line gets THIS much press. Now you see why Jen Maniston is so succesful getting press…any loser out there can say the magic words, ‘Angelina Jolie,’ and it’s good for at LEAST 2-3 days of press, blog, and talk show coverage. I’ve never seen anything like it.

  • Angelove

    LOVE
    LOVE,
    LOVE,
    ANGELINA JOLIE!!!!

  • julianne

    When I read the comments at the trash US site, I couldn’t believe how many people did not understand that this was a joke….

    Are people really as stupid as they sound…? If so, that is scarey!

    The joke was said with a tone of sarcasm that, I guess only intelligent brains could comprehend.

    Banging my head against the wall….No wonder our country is in the shape it is, we got a bunch of stupid idiots out there….

  • bella

    LOL . . .that Ben Affleck is so funny. He say the most dumbest things. I mean Ben Affleck he has massive starpower . . .think of all the huge movies he done . . . oh sorry that is Matt Damon.

  • MSNJS

    Even though it was lame, I am so glad he was joking for his sake… Cause he would have been ripped a new one…

  • gie

    haha, ben is a big joke! he wishes that he is bigger than jolie..sorry ben, you lose! angelina is the best and she does it better than anybody else out there! way to go angie!!!

  • marina

    of course he was joking, he knows that. The words and the title are being taken out of context for the sake of hits.

  • Foxy

    My goodness it was a joke. It’s call A JOKE…SARCASM.

  • screaming

    just everybody wants to use her big name.
    what a laugh !
    it’s prove his name is SMALL

  • CR30.01

    The title is highly misleading. It was a joke. Funny ha-ha. People should read the whole piece before writing a comment about it:

    “Ben Affleck just doesn’t think Angelina Jolie has the star power necessary to be a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations.

    At least that’s what he joked about at the press conference for his short movie, Gimme Shelter, in NYC on Wednesday.

    ‘UNHCR has to find a goodwill ambassador who will get the attention of the president because the woman they’ve got is not high profile enough’, Affleck said.”

  • ri23

    Ben, sit your gummy ass down and shut up.

  • Natchy

    LOL . . .that Ben Affleck is so funny. He say the most dumbest things. I mean Ben Affleck he has massive starpower . . .think of all the huge movies he done . . . oh sorry that is Matt Damon.
    ___________________________________________________

    LOL, 15! Loved your comment!! kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
    ___________________________________________________

    I REALLY, REALLY HOPE that Ben Affleck were joking!

    Because, serisiosly, who would be that person? He or his wife?
    Just because he started to serve food for unfortunate people NOW he would want to have a strong opinion about these subjects?
    Beside, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations doesn’t need to be just someone with “star power”, it’s ncessary to be someone who cares and that really want to make a differece… and it’s working on it.

    Otherwise, if the ‘star power’ is what would metter, than Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens or even Britney…

    Can you imagine?

    :(

  • ///

    and he has? – that’s what i was thinking when i read the title of this thread but after reading the article, i’ve realized that it was a joke. lol. looks like Jolie & Pitt are both powerful because when other celebs uses their name, they are heard and noticed.. lol.

  • krung krung

    he’s just joking geeze.

  • LolaSvelt

    Oh you Brangelina fanbots, stop taking things so seriously.

    “SHE IS FAMOUS WAH WAH WAH!”

    Get over yourselves.

  • Oldie but goodie

    Of course he’s only joking! If people would stop overreacting and read between the lines, he’s actually complimenting Jolie’s efforts and star power.

  • Bella

    How do you know it was a joke?

  • media

    Bella @ 12/19/2008 at 12:08 pm

    How do you know it was a joke?
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++===
    It’s a joke because no one in HW has more star power concerning humanitarian work than Angelina. Mention her name and you get press, period.

  • llm

    I am neutral towards Ben A, but it seems another celebrity is using Angie to get attention again.

  • julianne

    Bella- Do you not understand sarcasm? Just wondering. If anything, it was an underhanded compliment, for the love of God, how do you people function?

  • hmmm

    I really took his comment as a joke since he’s a joke anyhow. You can’t take what a has been says seriously. I don’t even really think he’s that great. Buying a bigger home for one more kid? Come on, who in their right mind buys a bigger home for a new baby unless it’s small to begin with? Like six BR isn’t large enough? Should focus on his wife who can’t seem to sniff enough fruit.

  • Teri

    Ben don’t feel bad about it, Jen does the same thing when her career is in the pooper for attention. He always seems so uptight.

  • gwen

    Ben was joking. Angie looks beautiful in that pic.

  • Um…

    Wow….Brangelina cult members have no sense of humor!! Ben was joking and if the Brangelina freaks could get off their knees and stop praying to the Brangelina gods long enough to realize that, there may be hope for them yet. I love Just Jared, but the Brangelina whores make the site less than pleasurable sometimes.

  • mimi

    I know he was joking but do they have to keep using Angie’s name for their own publicity, don’t they have any confidence in using their own name. Both men and women all want a piece of Angie to further their own ambition. Angie should start charging these shameless Dlist actors and zlist actresses who pedel her name endlessly, they are no worse than the paps who make a mint using her name to sell their trashy magazines and making up stories in the peocess.

  • thats_right

    Ben you idiot get a life you are jealous of Angelina Jolie thats all, you wish you had her power you sissy boy. You were Jennifer Lopez’s dog for a while did you forget that hahahahh and noooooo I’m not jocking!!!!

  • Liv

    If he really said that, was a joke, because Ben is a gentleman and he will never make such comments about Angelina seriously. Who believes that “source ” anyways?

  • me

    This is only a joke, right Ben? We people tell you she has an hugh positive influence.

  • gina

    FOXY -YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HALF OF THE PEOPLE HAVE THE I.Q OF A FLY SO THE JOKE WENT OVER THEIR HEADS.THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND HE WAS BEING SARCASTIC.HE MENTIONED ANGELINA BECAUSE SHE IS SO HIGH PROFILE ,DUH!ANYWAY HE’S FRIENDS WITH BRAD SO THERE WAS NO BAD INTENTION THERE

  • califan

    Of course he’s joking even the US mag. article says he’s joking.

  • BECKY SMITH

    We all know that Angie and Brad are the most overexposed couple in
    the world..!! More publicity to you two..!!!

    That is what the joke was about..!!! Nothing negative.. It was one comment .. and than this comment page takes over.. with the
    negative stuff so what the hell the difference from what he said
    and what this negative comment page says about Ben

  • BECKY SMITH

    Why not get someone that isn’t a celebrity that can work on this cause
    full time.. Instead of taking a wide section off to be with Brad…Make it
    a full time job..!! Please what has Angie done lately.. for them.. Build
    them Solar homes like Brad in New Orleans..No.. Helped any of the
    displaced people in Africa .. No.. only her one time Videos of her visiting the homes.. The governement has given Africa millions what happened to it.. Where did it go.. To all those executives sitting there..

    So Angie and Bono think next time you open your big mouth before
    saying it is for the good of the country.. When you haven’t helped
    in any way at all.

  • lsam

    Ben has no career at the moment because Matt Damon stole then limelight from him. He is acting like Michael Douglas to get publicity. You know he was in that skit with Brad delivering pizza and Casey Affleck is good friends with the Brangie. You know he wants publicity.

  • beth

    Ben the turd as usual is just trying to get some free publicity/attention. Loser.

  • Faye88

    He was KIDDING, dummies. @ 12/19/2008 at 10:45 am

    *************************************************************
    LOL!! In my lifetime I haven’t seen anything like it either. It’s incredible. They drop her name everywhere. That’s why she’s the most powerful actress in Hollywood. :)

  • d.kay

    Um… @ 12/19/2008 at 12:36 pm Wow….Brangelina cult members have no sense of humor!! Ben was joking and if the Brangelina freaks could get off their knees and stop praying to the Brangelina gods long enough to realize that, there may be hope for them yet. I love Just Jared, but the Brangelina whores make the site less than pleasurable sometimes.

    Then pray tell what is an X em effer doing on an AJ site? Are you fully developed mentally. Go to X’s site if you want to beech about AJ……..we don’t want you here trollette.

  • ewww

    He’s a loser just like maniston. Joke or not, he’s just using her name to get some free publicity and so that people can see that he’s pretending to do some charity work.

    What, he feeds a few homeless people for a couple of days and now he wants to put his input in charity work? Pathetic.

  • ewww

    He wishes that he and his wife had half as much star power as the talented and beautiful Angie.

  • sweetjasmine

    if he not kiddin’ i agre wit him. angie b callin’ herself “afrikan queen”. she a fuckin white bitch. jus bcuz she b frm south africa dont mean she an afro. pluz she sooooo full of herself. she jus’ sum motherfuckin’ bullshit.

  • Ashley Banks

    Beck Smith, why don’t you try and learn what she’s done. She’s done more than Brad could ever dream of doing. She’s been working for 8 + years while brad just started after he dumped stalker maniston to clean his image.
