Angelina Jolie Covers Harper's Bazaar July 2009

Angelina Jolie Covers Harper's Bazaar July 2009

Hollywood goddess Angelina Jolie is the July 2009 cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar’s. Here are some snippets from the lead story “Why Women Want Angelina Jolie‘s Life” via essayist Naomi Wolf:

—- Polls also show that if women — not just lesbian and bisexual women but straight women — had to choose a female lover, they would want to sleep with Angelina Jolie. In other words, women both identify with her and desire her.

—- Her persona hits an unprecedented level of global resonance — and makes women want to be with her and be her at the same time — because she has created a life narrative that is not just personal. Rather, it is archetypal. And the archetype is one that really, for the first time in modern culture, brings together almost every aspect of female empowerment and liberation.

—- The magic of Jolie‘s self-presentation? She makes the claim, with her life and actions, that, indeed, you can get away with it. All of it. Against every Western convention, she has managed to draw together all of these kinds of female liberation and empowerment. And her gestures determinedly transgress social boundaries — boundaries of convention, race, class, and gender — giving many of us a vicarious thrill.

FYI: The cover photo is a December 2008 red carpet pic of Angie in Versace at the Los Angeles premiere of Brad Pitt‘s The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. Bigger cover pic inside…

    Well i’m going to be one of a couple hundred comments knowing that this is a post about Angelina Jolie. I just wanted to speak my mind about her. She doesn’t act that well, along with her husband, although he IS hot. She doesn’t take the best care of her kids and i think she should go makeout with her brother again and keep brad’s blood in a jar around herneck- like you did with billy bob thorton’s. what a weirdo. as you can tell i’m not a person that jumped onto the brangelina bandwagon.

  • Analina


    haha jealous much..

    I love the pople that say oh she should go back to being a vampire and wearing blood around her neck!! wtf? she did an interview and said it was literally just a prick of the what she had weird ways when she was younger..people change and clearly she was just a wild child least she’s straighened out and is one of the world’s most powerfull celebrities.

    Let’s talk more about people like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, etc. They’re more worthy – NOT


  • Analina

    @Jolie Hot Chin not:


    I would marry her tomorrow!! and yes I’m straight

  • gambit loves jolie

    you know what’s rubbish?

    you posting your nonsenseness over and over the JP threads. if you don’t like them, why bother opening and posting on their thread? it’s that simple. can you even comprehend?

  • agree


    I do have a soft spot for Angie but like you I am waiting for something out of her past to intervene in her present or future. People only change if they have a real spiritual intervention and I haven’t seen or heard of that yet. So basically this is the Angie from her past trying hard to be the opposite – at some point it will crash around her and then hopefully she will get well. I don’t think her brother is in the same place as he was so I don’t see that sick relationship following the same course – if anything he may lead her into a more enlightened person and help pick up the pieces. I also think her father is very much there getting ready to catch her. Brad Pitt took advantage of her and still is.

  • i’m hot you’re not

    i see some b i t c h e s spreading their hate.

    i would too if my movie bombed and i have no paid boyfriend for the moment.

  • vos

    “Why women want Angelina Jolie’s life”… how contrived is that title. I sure has hell dont. I’ll have her money, but that’s about it. I like Jolie but all this worshipping makes me sick.

  • Ms.JOLIE4ever!
  • Ms.JOLIE4ever!

    Every woman wants to copy her.

  • b/w miller

    Not a fan. she’s a whore.

  • Analina

    oh yeah and so true – if you hate her then don’t bother commenting?!?! how hard is that to understand..If I don’t like a celebrity I don’t make a point to open the thread and take my time writing my’s just so pointless.

    True fans will always love her and non-fans will not. End of story.

  • ayj6m6l

    I’m not straight ………..I would never ever sleep with her !!!!!!!!!!! her lips are too muscley…..her body’s too thin……


    I have a subscription to Harper’s Bazaar. The newstand cover is always different from the subscription cover. Angelina looks gorgeous as always. You can;t keep a good woman down.

  • bintk
  • Lillianne

    What are they doing to keep anyone from photographing their kids? I haven’t seen them, especially the twins in a long time. How I miss Prague when we go to see them coming and going from school everyday.

  • M

    This is the dumbest thing I have ever read.

  • movie fan

    Some people are so stupid to STILL believe she “made out” with her brother!! It was a closed lip kiss of sheer joy at having won the biggest award in her profession. Not a big deal unless you have a sick mind….

    And does everyone forget that a man who was twice her age and married four times ALSO had a drop of blood worn around HIS neck, not just the 24-year-old wild woman?? Funny how it’s only the woman who drives people crazy, and by “people”, I mean insecure women. Notice it’s not men who have a problem with her…..

  • love her

    Damn she’s so gorgeous, yes I want her.

  • love her

    Yes I’m straight and married but I’d jump at the chance too.

  • jeannette laframboise

    I agree, she is beautiful but what I most admire about her is her work with the UN and her philanthropy. That is much more important than beauty. I am also not interested in sleeping with her as the article states but definitely do admire the work she has done for underprivileged.

  • mertz

    harper’s needs help selling magz eh. i see. also to one of the comments on page 1, allow her the right to grow up and learn from her past. please. whatever you have against her is misguided.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Beauty, brains and guts ! Rarelly seen in Hollyweird at such a young age !

  • anonymous

    Jennifer Aniston would love to Angelina Jolie life. Angelina has it all. Global admiration, Beauty, Fame, Brad Pitt Babies, Oscar winner, Phlantropym 15 million dollar paychecks, and her ex-husband.

  • T pain

    MARISA, you may claim to have not jumped in the Brangelina bandwagon, BUT you did make the decision to click on this thread, and DID take 5 mins of your life to post what you feel about somehow the mere idea and sight of the gorgous angelina jolie has some affect on your thoughts and actions….

    Deal with it girl….you secretley adore Angie, just like the rest of US!! :)

  • love her

    Jealous insecure women have the hate filled hearts and anger towards prettier more successful women. Women are more judgemental towards other women, that’s a fact.

    Love Angelina For the Beautiful Lady she has Become.Blessings to This Precious and Beautiful Lady.May God Always Hold You in The Palm of His Hands.Thanks Jared, For This Thread.Have a Beautiful Day Jolie-Pitt Fans.
