    Brad will now realize (if he hasn’t already) that he made the biggest mistake of his life when he left Jennifer for Angie. But that boat has sailed. Sigh.

    I don’t want to fuel any feud, but why the heck is Jennifer Aniston doing on that list. She doesn’t do anything except use her personal life to sell movies and her films usually suck.

    trollettes will be trollettes.
    Like if Brad is an innocent dove there.
    Melanie Griffith had a wild childhood and youth
    Drew Barrymore? find about her.
    Any rockstar? What about their kids? will they google them?
    Tatum o’neal?
    natalie cole?
    there is one thing these women have in common, too, they have had trouble and overcaame (most of them, I hope Tatum is still strong)
    there are loads more. stories of fallen stars and their recovery.
    . angelina was young when she made mistakes and turned her life for the better because she found out what was truly important in life, not just living the HW life. She has more important things to do,read and think. -
    - last thing they re worried about is some loon in internet posting C’ra’p for their kids to see it. That is left for braindeads trolls on a “mission”.

    Angelina Jolie tops Forbes celebrity ‘power list’

    27 minutes ago

    NEW YORK (AFP) — Superstar actress and humanitarian advocate Angelina Jolie has unseated talkshow diva Oprah Winfrey as the world’s most powerful celebrity in a new survey published by Forbes magazine Wednesday.

    The top ranking is based on income over the past 12 months as well as web references, press clippings, broadcast mentions and major magazine covers devoted to the celebrity, Forbes said.

    Oscar winner Jolie, 33, one half of the Hollywood golden couple dubbed “Brangelina” with Brad Pitt, earned 27 million dollars between June 2008 and June 2009.

    Her earnings and “famous face,” Forbes said, were enough to dethrone media maven Winfrey, who earned 275 million dollars.

    Jolie, who came in third last year, is known for balancing her movie career and work as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency with her ever-growing six-child family with Pitt.

    power over what? @ 06/03/2009 at 7:12 pm
    I keep telling you, no matter how you try to twist the facts, make up lies and drag up old news or tabloid news, no one cares except for X hags and possibly X herself.

    So apparently she wields a great deal of power over you!

    I guess that happens when you have a life without meaning.
    You hop on celebrity threads of people SO much more fulfilled and successful than yourself so you can try tear them down. You must feel so powerless in your own pathetic existence to sink that low!
