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.

    AMOA ANGELINA, QUE PASA CON ELLA QUE ESTA REVISTA PUBLICA EN TAPA UNA NOTA SOBRE ELLA, Y NO UNA ENTREVISTA CON ELLA.
    Y OTRA VEZ SE CONFIRMA MI PENSAMIENTO QUE BRAD PITT NO LE INTERESA A NADIE.
    ANGIE TE AMO

    Key words

    *Angelina, God Bless you! God Bless the Jolie-Pitts!
    *Congratulations Angelina!
    * She’s the best actress in the world!
    * Mama Pitt has something to make Papa Pitt proud

    It’s all a bunch of rubbish.

    @marisa:

    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 finger..so what she had weird ways when she was younger..people change and clearly she was just a wild child then..at 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

    LOVE ANGELINA!!!
