Did you also know , Brad was on Tarantino’s resturant on Friday. And guess who was also there.

.

hehehe Yes . Diane Krugar. Although Tarantino and his other co-stars were there as well. But more importantly , Angie wasn’t at that party.

Another fake masquerading as Brad and Angie’s fan. Pls take your KW concern to her blog, this is Brad and Angie’s blog. I think you are talking nonsense, Angie’s movie so far has made $39,556,164 in USA and this is just the 9th week. It was only shown in 15 screens compared to others that were screened in over 3000 theaters the first weekend. Total gross including overseas is over $75m and the movie cost $55m to make. How you can call that a failure is beyond me.
KW movies are not doing well at the box office incase you failed to notice. Reader so far has made only $7,512,000m and Revolutionary Road $5,694,000m. And Brad Pitt movie is at #4 or 5 with over £102m. You are delusional to think that KW movies now out performs Brad and Angie’s. Get your facts right. You sound like you are jealous to see a couple in love and expressing it. Angie has nothing to prove to anyone anymore she has done them and won them all. It is okay for KW to win something now after 8 nominations otherwise, it will look embarrassing to keep been nominated and not win. Angie didn’t have to be nominated so many times before she won her awards and she won them in her early and mid twenties.
——————-
I totally agree with you !
-
Some people on blogs underestimate her weight as a talented actress among the general people and overestimate the weight of the tabs. Angie(‘s movie are doing well for the last 4 years.
-
“Changeling” deals with a terrible subject. All the movies of the same genre are doing less than 10,000 $. She is doing better in all the genre she is doing because she has the IT. She is versatile and can pull of commedy like ‘Mr & Mrs Smith”, drama like “Changeling” and action like in “Wanted”. All of them financial success compairing to the same genre.
-
All this means that at the end of the day, domestically and outside the US, Angelina’s move draws the majority of people in theaters in spite of the tabs, in spite of the blogs, in spite of the haters, she is the number one female star who can draws the majority of people in theaters just on her name, whatever the genre she is into. She is number one within every genre she is doing, finanncially speaking and even critically too, which is rare to have it both !

While reading Paris Hilton’s interview about wishing Angelina to be her best friend, at first I had mixed reactions. I didn’t know if she’s serious or what. Considering her negative reputation & the superficial/ shallow image she projects in public, my initial reaction was, “she didn’t know what she’s talking about….Only in her dreams…..She’s just kidding or using her just to be in the news…. I don’t believe anything she says…”
.
On the other hand, I could sense PH really wanted to change her life & to look up to someone who can be a good role model to her. I felt she needed to surround herself with people who can bring positive influence to her life & help her become a better person. She knows AJ was able to turn her life around successfully from her wild, experimental & adventurous life to what she is today, to what she has become – a respected actress & great humanitarian. She knows AJ is able to balance her life, that of being a popular celebrity as well as a family woman & activist.
.
AJ’s past destructive ways is what I think PH is referring to, what she has in common with her. She’s making her an inspiration to find life’s purpose, that if AJ could do it, why can’t she? Of course she can but she has to realize it has to begin with her own self. She has to distinguish what is trivial & significant in life. Sure, inspiration & admiration is nice but in order for others to help her & to give positive influence in her life, she has to help herself first. She has to set her priorities. Find her sense of purpose & the sense to be useful.
.
PH is very consistent in expressing her admiration for AJ. She has made statements before, saying how much she admires AJ. PH & other celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Anne Hathaway, etc. are inspired by AJ’s unprecedented change. It’s actually a compliment for her. Interestingly, AJ found the drive to better her life when she witnessed firsthand the difficulties suffered by refugees & other unfortunate people she has spent time with during her travels. It changed her opinion on everything—on life, her values & especially her own sense of self. For AJ, she can’t complain with her own problems anymore as there are many people who have much bigger concerns, yet these people taught her courage, survival, friendship & love.
.
So, with that being said, PH can discover herself how to improve her life & start by asking, “WHAT DO I REALLY WANT IN LIFE?”

Hello mimi….I ‘m very sorry..I didn’t mean that ..I was so shocked when I was posting those words last night , Please forgive me, that would be a lesson for me, I’m sorry.. I really feel you’re an original fan..so please.
