Angelina Jolie: Back To Flying Lessons

Angelina Jolie: Back To Flying Lessons

Angelina Jolie is back in the pilot seat, taking a flying lesson aboard a Cirrus SR-22 single engine plane on Thursday (July 9) in Burbank, Calif.

While Angie was high in the sky, Brad Pitt took his motorcycle out for a spin in Los Angeles.

Life & Style has more details about the princess-themed ballet class Angie took Zahara and Shiloh to at the Creation Station in Studio City, Calif., on July 6.

A parent at the class shared, “Zahara and Shiloh were so cute — they were holding hands and sitting side-by-side. Zahara was a little more coordinated, and she was trying to help Shiloh. She was taking on the big-sister role! [Angie] was so encouraging to them — you could see the light in her eyes when she was watching. I was trying not to stare, but she’s just so gorgeous in person, even more than on the big screen.”

    I thought the comment from the parent was very telling. I will go by those accounts. I have never heard a negative thing about she or Brad from anyone who has ACTUALLY MET THEM.. the negative comments come from those who have never met them in person..or have not been the same room with them.. But for the people who have it is alway really positive and they always talk about how nice they both are and that they are really down to earth.. I’m sure that goes against what some people want to think and believe about them.. but I think the personal accounts are on the money.

    Just as I thought.

    Precisely! Everyone who has MET them has wonderful things to say about them. Those ragloids quote “an inside source” because it is their way of printing lies to sell rags and protecting themselves from lawsuits!

    Aaron Sorkin game for ‘Moneyball’
    Columbia taps scribe for baseball drama
    .
    By Steven Zeitchik
    .

    .
    Aaron Sorkin (Getty)
    Columbia is taking another turn at bat with “Moneyball,” hiring Aaron Sorkin to write a new script for the project.
    .
    The studio wants to move forward quickly with the new iteration of the baseball drama, with Sorkin set to turn in his draft as soon as August.
    .
    Brad Pitt remains on board to star in the Michael DeLuca-produced pic, but Steven Soderbergh will no longer write or direct, and is not involved in the film in any capacity.

    “Moneyball,” based on Michael Lewis’ best-seller about the Oakland A’s and their new approach to evaluating talent, was set to go into production in June with Soderbergh behind the camera.
    .
    But the plug was pulled at the last moment after Amy Pascal and other execs deemed a new Soderbergh script different from what they had originally signed on for. At the time there was a possibility it would be shopped elsewhere, but Columbia has opted to make another go of it with the “West Wing” creator.
    .
    Sorkin is believed to have a close relationship with Sony. The A-list scribe recently completed “The Social Network” for the studio, colloquially known as the Facebook movie.
    .
    The writer also has experience writing tales set in the sports world, creating the critically well-received “Sports Night” for ABC a decade ago.
    ###############################
    WOW!!! Thanks, bdj. Great news. I usually love Sorkin’s work. He probably did his best stuff on coke though. Sports Night has quite a cult following.
    .
    DAVID FINCHER is directing Sorkin’s Facebook script, The Social Network. Maybe he’ll be through in time to do Moneyball. Woo Hoo!
    .
    In any event, I am sure the sports world will be excited. AARON SORKIN, BRAD PITT, DAVID FINCHER on Moneyball. Can you imagine? Maybe they can find a part for ED NORTON. Every male in the USA will be there on opening weekend. At least the straight ones. What am I saying? The gay community will be out in droves if they are smart enough to give Brad a shower scene and put it in the trailers.

    Karen Says:

    @coco:

    Yeah she is amazingly beautiful.. Don’t be jealous. Everyone can’t be her.. so don’t hate.. just play up your average features and don’t be angry because there are beautiful people in the world..

    but let me help you understand what you obviously don’t.. the thing that makes her most beautiful is not her arms, veins, hair, lips or body.. It is all that she is on the inside.. and because you are such a negative person and your insides are dark.. you will never be as beautiful as she is..

    and you will never understand the attraction of that kind of beauty..that is on the inside..

    Now run along… School is over…

    .
    Pilots have to keep up their licenses by getting in the required hours every so often.
    Angie has mentioned this before and how she was rusty and had been unable to keep up. When she was asked about taking the kids flying with her, she mentioned that she wouldn’t do that at the time because she hadn’t been flying regularly. I think this was last summer or before when she said this.

    Brad’s Moneyball film is back on with a new writer and new script due next month. Sony/Columbia really want to mke this film with Brad. He is hard at work on this project.

    Angie has to keep her flying hours up to date just like Brad was flying on Long Island. It is part of their license requirements. All intelligent humans know this to be true, that excludes you coven members. LOL

    It must be so hard for the few members still left in an ageing rom com hasbeen coven to see these pixs of this family in LA, getting out and about like everyone does. Their rush to come here with their lies is so over the top that they are manageing to drive away the few fans the ageing rom com hasbeen still has. Keep it up, Travelling or A New Day or whatever the crappy named film the ageing one has coming out in September will have even fewer fans than Management did. Meagan Fox’s film is opening the same day and will do mega business. Just watch.

    Errr, both are doing what they have always done. Living a happy and loving and productive life together. So nice, so very nice.

    I agree totally with you. I’ve worked in a collateral media field and know a lot of film crew types. I’ve never heard anyone bash Angie and Brad unlike some other A listers. They have always said that Brad and Angie are down to earth, know everyone’s name on the set, remember personal conversations about kids, spouses etc. People who have met them are also highly complimentary. I also have a friend who works for the UN and he said Angie has the respect of everyone there. That her commitment to the refugees is real and deep and not for self-promotion as many say.
    It is only those that can’t let go of their pre-conceived prejudices that hate on this family.

    Dressed in a black tank top that showed off the tattoos on her arm, Angie was accompanied only by her bodyguard. In addition to honing her takeoff and landing skills, the Oscar-winner also made one round-trip flight to nearby Van Nuys airport and back during her 90 minutes in the air.

    “She looked like she was just having so much fun,” one witness at the airport tells OK!. “It even seems like she’s got a little muscle tone in her arms, like she’s been working out again.”

    I told you it wasn’t a flying lesson. She has her Bg with her and apparently she was just practicing because her flying got a bit rusty because it’s been awhile…

She’s not high maintnence as shown because she’s naturally beautiful.

    Angelina Jolie is giving two of her six children an early start in dancing. Angelina took her girls Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 3, to a princess-themed ballet class at the Creation Station in Studio City, Calif., on July 6.

    Studio owner Amy Kriegel tells Life & Style that her theater dance classes incorporate a Cinderella theme because of the popularity of Disney. “Many of the kids come in costume, and I have a whole closet full of stuff for them to wear too — wings and wands, tutus, top hats and capes,” she says.

    A parent whose daughter took the class with the Jolie-Pitt girls tells Life & Style, “Zahara and Shiloh were so cute — they were holding hands and sitting side-by-side. Zahara was a little more coordinated, and she was trying to help Shiloh. She was taking on the big-sister role!”

    The eyewitness also praises Angelina for being a totally hands-on mother: “She was so encouraging to them — you could see the light in her eyes when she was watching. I was trying not to stare, but she’s just so gorgeous in person, even more than on the big screen.”

    I’ve read so many comments like this from people who met her for the first time. Even our Frenchy said the same thing when she went to the premiere of her movie. Heck, even Gerard Butler said the same thing. Anybody has the exact quote? Poor Gerard, hope he doesn’t have nostalgia of the Lara Croft filming days while he films his current movie. I am sure now that I’ve written this, Filler Face’s PR team is going to cajole (coerce) Gerard Butler into saying something nice about Filler Face to sell the movie.

    For Passing Through. Man crush alert. Just kidding trolls.

    Do attractive men ever suffer the same apparent plight as attractive women in Hollywood – too pretty to be taken seriously? “That’s a sweet thing to say. As an actor you always want to try different things and do different things. I wish I could look really different from one role to the next but you’ve just kind of got to go with what you’re given. Look at Brad Pitt. He does fairly alternative, yet mainstream kind of work and honestly I’ve always considered myself a character actor. I don’t care if I’m a big or small role.”

    Sony Hires New Writer to Salvage ‘Moneyball’
    By MICHAEL CIEPLY
    Published: July 9, 2009

    LOS ANGELES — Sony Pictures Entertainment has quietly moved to salvage its troubled movie project “Moneyball” by hiring the prominent screenwriter Aaron Sorkin for a quick rewrite, while looking to add Scott Rudin, known for his turns on the Oscar circuit, to the film’s roster of producers.

    Last month, Sony executives canceled the baseball picture — which was set to star Brad Pitt, who remains involved — just days before production, citing dissatisfaction with a rewrite from its director, Steven Soderbergh.

    Mr. Soderbergh and his associates were allowed to offer the film to other studios. But Paramount and Warner turned it down, and Mr. Soderbergh left the project.

    Representatives for Sony, Mr. Sorkin and Mr. Rudin all declined to comment on the new configuration. But several people who were briefed on the situation and spoke on condition of anonymity to protect relationships said Mr. Sorkin was revising a version of the script that had been written by Steven Zaillian, who had worked with Mr. Soderbergh.

    Studio executives had suddenly declared Mr. Soderbergh’s draft too arty and documentary in style, though he had worked with them in developing his version, and had included changes requested by Major League Baseball, which examines scripts for authenticity before granting permission to use its trademarks.

    It was unclear whether Mr. Rudin, who was a producer of “No Country for Old Men,” which won the best-picture Oscar in 2008, would be credited as a producer or executive producer of “Moneyball.” He joins Michael De Luca and Rachael Horovitz, who remain producers of the movie.

    Mr. Sorkin, perhaps best known as a writer and producer of “The West Wing,” has been working with both Mr. Rudin and Mr. De Luca on “The Social Network” — a comic drama that has been loosely tagged “The Facebook Movie.” If Mr. Sorkin finishes his work on “Moneyball” quickly, Sony executives are hoping to recruit a new director and shoot the film, with Mr. Pitt still in the lead, in the fall of this year, people briefed on the project said.

    @bdj:

    bdj..

    I think Brad has had it a bit harder then Angie.. She is a beautiful woman. .but I don’t see looks hindering her work or her ability to get parts.. the camera loves her face..

    Brad has played a lot against type. If you look at his film choices he has not done the traditional “rom coms” that one would expect someone with his looks to fall into. If you look at a lot of the “IT” men out there they are all falling into the “rom com” formula.. playing to type. My favoriite Brad films are not .. Legend of the Fall or Troy.. I loved him in roles like, Snatch, Burn, 12 Monkeys, Seven, Fight Club, Kalifornia, Jesse James, Babel… those roles where his talent was at the fore front.. not that he was not SEXY as He!! in those films.. I just got so caught up in the story his beauty became secondary… And looking at some of the fims I named you can see that he was not the main “STAR”.. so he does not have huge Ego.. many actors would not do a role unless they are the lead character..

    I have to say I really love the work he has done in the last 5 years.. Amazing choices.. Stellar performances all.. So no he has not taken the predictible path.. no he has gone off course and I am so glad to trample through the brush with him..

    Angie too has made films that highlight her unique quality.. I remember an interview she gave after taking the role of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.. she said she had talked to someone and they told her if she was going to do a comedy.. that film was more inline with who she was.. And I have to agree. She is much more funnier then she gives herself credit for.. One of the reasons I liked the movie so much was First the chemistry between them.. but the comedic timing of them both.. We all know that Brad can do comedy.. but Angie shys away..She was just so cute and funny in that movie.. I would love for her to do more films like that.. but she can kick ass like no one else..

    They both have made great choices and again I love how neither has t be the lead to add to a film and make their performances unforgettable..

    @Neil: she is and in one interview she talked about having just got an instrument rating so I think you’re right.. she’s going to another “level” of flying :lol

    I agree Says:

    Jolie also told reporters on Tuesday about her recent pilot-license upgrade and the possibility of flying en famille. ” I just got my instrument rating, so we’re moving forward with that but we haven’t had a lot of time because of the kids and with Pax coming home,” she said.

    “I wouldn’t fly the kids at this moment. I would only fly the kids if I had been actively flying for a few months and when I’m not at all rusty.”

    Jolie, a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR, insisted she will continue her campaign for justice around the world, even though there have been concerns for her safety: “I don’t want to live inside a box. I will be smart, but I will lead a very bold life, and I will learn about the world.”

    She is. Maybe she wants to do like John Travolta and qualify to fly jets.
    .
    Did you know that guy has a runway right outside his front door instead of a pathway? He parks his full-size jet right next to the house and whenever he wants to go anywhere, he walks out the house, climbs on board his jet, taxis down his private runway and zooms off. Beats having to drive to the airport.

    I’ve heard people say over and over that she is more beautiful in person, which is hard to believe since she is already impossibly gorgeous.

    Also so glad to hear that Zahara and Shiloh are bonded to each other. It would be so easy for jealousy to grow there. I give credit for that to Angelina and Brad. They are building a family based on love not blood. I admire them for that. I bet there is a lot of laughter in that house. And a lot of HARD WORK!! The idea of getting six kids ready to go anywhere exhausts me just thinking about it.

    I truly despise the buckles on car seats. Imagine having to strap in six every damn day!

    Does anyone here know if Angie is the only female celeb who has her pilots license? I guess i didn’t do the greatest job googling so didn’t find it. I would like to know as am having a debate with my cousin who says lots of celeb’s have their airplane lic. which i just don’t think so? Anyone?

    That in itself as well as Angie riding a 700 pound Harley Davidson (she is so tiny) but moreso the airplane pilot ..Talk about cool. Shes the one!

    OT: Ouch

    The senior publicist at PMK/HBH was let go by the actress after 15 years. That’s right, 15 years! Sure, like it’s Olim’s fault that Nicole Kidman is box office poison (because she has zero charisma onscreen: women don’t like her and men think she’s sexless). “For years Catherine gave her all to this woman, including orchestrating Kidman’s victorious Oscar campaign during her heydey and was slavishly devoted to her,” a PR source emails me. “Now that the bloom is off Kidman’s career, Olim got thrown to the ground. Hollywood is a tough business.” Kidman has moved on to Leslee Dart at 42 West. Olim still handles Glenn Close, Ed Harris, Donald Sutherland, Legendary Pictures, and others.

    I love Angelina Jolie. Truely love for she is everything a woman should be and so much more. Not just her naturally blessed beauty and pleasuring lifestyle. I’ve watched her over the last decade bloom into this marvelous human being and as a mommy, she is terrific. I don’t think their is a soul in this world that is so giving and loving as Angelina Jolie. She is perfect in everyway shape and form. I wish her nothing but the happiness she deserves and maybe adopting or conceiving more babies with Brad!

    —————————————————————————–

    Of course it doesn’t. But I have some friends who have bio and adopted kids and they have problems with insecurities in the adopted kids feeling like they aren’t the “real” kids. No matter how much the parents assure them they are just as “real” the adopted kids still feel jealousy sometimes. Just saying it looks like the Jolie-Pitts look to be avoiding that problem. Good for them.

    http://www.pr-inside.com/producers-look-at-button-technology-to-r1378916.htm

    The brains behind the last HARRY POTTER film are looking to use technology that aged BRAD PITT in THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON to give the 20-something stars of the film franchise a more mature look.
    Boy wizard Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe, and his pals Hermione and Ron have to grow up quickly in the two-part finale, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, and director David Yates and producer David Heyman aren’t going to take the magical scenes lightly.
    Yates says, “We’re still exploring how we’re gonna do that. It’s an absolutely beautiful part of the (J.K. Rowling) book and one of the most unique things of this franchise is the fact that you’ve grown up with these characters and that’s what makes it special for the audience.
    “We will be delivering that at the end of part two, and we’re looking at various options of how we do it.” And Heyman adds, “A lot of Benjamin Button is making them look younger and we’re taking people, who are 20 years old, and making them look like they’re in their late 30s, so that’s a different experience.
    “We may use some of the techniques that they did in Benjamin Button, but we’re going to do everything we can and it will be Daniel, Emma and Rupert in the parts and not some other actors.”

    Isn’t it amazing how neither THR nor Variety have written stories about the e-mail(s) that contradict Pascal’s half-assed explanation for why she halted production? The story has been in the NYT and is all over movie blogs and even Variety’s own bloggers have talked about it. Yet both papers are so intent on staying on the good side of the studios that neither one will risk pissing the studios off. Why let a litte thing like the truth be a motivation for a paper/news organization to tell THE WHOLE STORY and not just the parts they’re spoonfed.

Pascal did what Brad’s Agent asked her to do which was put a spin in Brad’s favor and go ahead and throw soderwhatever under the bus. Pascall said she did not like soderwhatevers script but still hoped to keep brad when he was the one that didn’t like the og script. btw, The email was from Soderwhatevers camp. Pascal articls said brad was so loyal to soderwhatever but it sure doesn’t seem that way now… hope soderwhatever movie with Matt Damon (better actor than pitt and clooney) does well… now you can yell and defend brad all you want but I aint neva listen to you…

A day later and Alec comes out and says he was just kidding – nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

    Have Brad and Angelina gone their separate ways?

    Let me see if I understand your question: You see one photograph of Brad on a motorbike by himself, and you see Angie flying a plane by herself, and you assume they have gone their separate ways?

    I really feel sorry for Gerard Butler. How do you go from a 26 year old Angelina Jolie to a 40 and a half year old Jennifer Aniston? Poor guy. I just hope for his sake that he doesn’t cave in to the pressure to date her to sell the movie. Gerard, life is too short to fake living. Just do your job, get paid and then get out of there with your dignity intact.

    The senior publicist at PMK/HBH was let go by the actress after 15 years. That’s right, 15 years! Sure, like it’s Olim’s fault that Nicole Kidman is box office poison (because she has zero charisma onscreen: women don’t like her and men think she’s sexless).

    LOL. Good old Nikki Finke – calling as she sees it. What made me laugh is this – PMK/HBH…is Stevenn Huvane’s PR firm. Nic is probably disgusted with being labelled box office poison and ridiculed…and then having to sit at the Oscars and watch X and Huvane turn the show into an “I will NOT be ignored, BRAD!” circus AND for some reason still get movies even though her BO record is even worse than Nic’s.

    #139 I feel sorry for any costar of hers. They will all get the pressure to snuggle with Jenny at the premier if her PR people can’t manufacture a fauxmance for her. Did you see poor Owen Wilson in the press junket in Europe for Marley & Me? Dude looked miserable. My bet is that Butler may be a bit more cautious. I also get the impression he doesn’t like being told what to do.

    @Passing Through: So I wasn’t the only one thinking that the Oscar thing was a big JA PR stunt. The showdown at the Oscar coral. I couldn’t believe she was even a presenter. She is definitely not a force in the craft and I was mystified why she was even there. When she pulled that smirk at Brad while presenting, I thought I would bust a gut laughing. That and it looked like she had done her own hair. I have to hand it Angie, she was cool even with the camera shoved in her face. JA is totally clueless to how pathetic she looked that night. I wonder if her PR people considered the night a success…NOT!

    @some bunny: That’s nice. I like that you said over the last decade you’ve watched her changed because a lot of people give full credit to Brad for her growth. they act like she just changed into some giving humanitarian because of him
    .
    +++++++++++++++
    .
    That’s a crock of shite. The exact opposite is true – people claim BRAD only became a humanitarian because of her. Go find her Reader’s Digest interview from 2007. She’s even asked about the perception that she turned him into a humanitarian and she says he was always involved, just quieter “in his way” than she is with her work. Only the truly stupid and prejudiced refuse to acknowledge the years of work Angie did before she ever met Brad and that Angelina alone is responsible for getting herself together and becoming the fantastic woman she is today

    Living up to your name, I see. I read the blogger posts and news articles, plus reader comments at quite a few sites about the Moneyball sitch and not a single one lay the blame at Brad’s feet or said he’d been a PITA. Did you not understand that the e-mail made it clear that Brad hadn’t even signed on to do Moneyball until AFTER Soderbergh came on board and created his vision of the movie? That Amy Pascal KNEW what Soderbergh was planning way back in April? Brad signed on to work with Soderbergh.

    So what if he wanted Frankel off the movie? Big whoop. It’s notable only for the X-related hilarity of Brad not wanting to work with anyone who had X’s stench on them. Stars get other actors, producers, directors, etc., thrown of movies all the time. Some actors even use their husband’s clout to do so…like…say your hubby had a friend who hired you for a movie written by a first-time director. And let’s say that director thought the continuity and flow of the story was more important than how his boss’ friend’s actress wife was lit and wasn’t overly concerned that she didn’t come off as peaches-and-cream glowy, softly lit to mute the harshness of her mannish features. Let’s say said “actress wife” calls her hubby while he’s overseas working with his friend who’s producing the actress’ movie and throws a fit and claims this first-time directory who WROTE the words she’s uttering, doesn’t have a clue how to make a movie…plus his lighting is too harsh and she doesn’t look serenely beautiful in the daily rushes…and he needs to speak to his friend the producer and get him to replace the director…who wrote the movie and knows more about it than anyone else on the planet. The producer friend and his partner, who’s also a friend of the husband’s and the director of the movie both are currently working on, agree to HALT the production, pull the director, then spend a number of weeks finding a replacement who can take over in short order, all the while filming their own movie in Europe. The producer finds a replacement, the movie resumes finishing…the actress and the husband part ways 5 months later…the movie comes out and bombs big time…then the actress proceeds to trash the movie and call it “the worst experience” of her life and trashes it multiple interviews – all before the movie goes to DVD, which then caused the DVD sales to be all but non-existent. The produder and his partner lost a boatload of money for their parent studio, but the actress wife felt no remorse and never felt she’d done anything wrong. Surely even you can see how this makes what Brad did as no big thing. Brad has never trashed any of his movies – even the ones that sucked (Meet Joe Black!).

    @Passing Through: No doubt. Butler needs to be a little more picky with his costars in the future. One thing will be consistent in this new movie, it will be Rachel Green on the run…

    Hehehehehehe… Either that or they’ll call it “WANTED Woman” and try to make people think it’s a sequel to Angie’s movie! When the Turkey Giblet movie comes out around the same time, maybe there’s a drive-in left in this country that’ll do a Rachel Green Double Feature. They can show “Rachel Green On The Run” followed by “Rachel Green Has A Baster Baby”. Or they can take the 2 movies and cut them into 1 flick – Rachel Green Has A Baster BAby On The Run”.

    The only reason X was invited to the Oscars was that the show had new producers and they were doing anything they could think of to raise ratings. The other problem was that they had asked a bunch of true A-listers and B+ movie stars to be presenters and got turned down. That’s how they ended up with X, Ben Stiller, Portman, etc. One of the people the producer’s asked to present was Angie – she turned them down…and I’m almost positive that’s when they came up with the idea to ask X. And that ho’s so fcuking desperate to be seen as a movie star equal to Brad & Angie that she jumped at the chance to be there. After all, it’s not like she’s ever going to be nommed. Her Fug & Mighty knew she might not ever have another chance to be invited to another Oscars…especially not with the crappy movies she’s making.
    .
    Also – US Lies Weakly called bullshit on X at the time and said she and The Urinator were a PR stunt. They were the only tab willing to go there though.

    Great to see Angie and Brad.. I really want to see the twins.. Hard to believe it has been a year. They were in France this time last year.. Remember all the craziness.. false reports.. just madness. I remember pics of Brad taking the kids to see Angie while she was in the hospital.. Then all was quiet until we saw pics of the entire extended family having a outside party.. Well I just would love to see how big those babies are..

    who knows maybe we will. I am reminded that we did not see many pics of Shiloh until she was much older. So maybe they will be taking the twins out more.. fingers crossed.
