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.”

    Angie was still flying while pregnant both times,lmao, try again troll

  • ha!

    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…

    Was just at Jared’s homepage and now I’m ROTFLMBAO. Those pix of X doing her “action” movie are killing me! Who holds their hands up and stands with they’re knock-kneed? And it must be killing her to be in the same outfit for 3 weeks. I’m also LMAO because her “journalist” character is “on the lam”…wearing $500 Tom Ford sunglasses! What a fcuking joke.

    Again, you made me laugh so hard. I laughed when I saw those pics too. As I said, Mr&Mrs Smith they ain’t.

    I get so nervous everytime she starts flying again….i just know one of these days i will turn on the news and see “Angelina Jolie dead in plane crash”….i just couldnt take it…she needs to stop this whole flying thing its dangerous and she has 6 kids…
    I agree. I hate to see her flying, and she has so many children. But lets just say, God forbid, something happens to her.

    As long as the airplanes are keep in optimum maintenance, and she follows all safety rules, she will be alright.

    Angie is a renaissance woman. I love that girl!

  • Karen


    your conversations are just sick.. people fly everyday and drive, walk.. life happens.. and everyone is going to die when it is their time. Nothing you do can prevent that.. She is a human being no different then all of us.. Life is meant to be lived for as long as we have it.. What is she supposed to do.. sit in a room and wait for her life to pass her by.. CRAZY..

    and your talking this way is morbid. I guess you are saying the same thing to people driving their cars who may crash, or people walking who may trip and hit their heads.. or people sking like Natasha R.. they could hurt themselves.. or race car drivers.. or football players, or policemen, firemen or anyone who is living a life..

    please move on..

    If i want to bring her up i will ,if you don’t like it its not a thing you can do about,now stop wasting my time and find something to do.And by the way i can’t see her riding a tricycle with breaking out in hives,lol

    I can’t see Fugly riding anything but a beach blanket with her ass in the air.

    Angelina isn’t losing her looks, don’t be silly. She’s a mother and doesn’t have a pr team primping her every ten minutes. Angelina is gorgeous and sexy without trying and without makeup. I doubt many could throw her outfit on and look so sexy yet down to earth. No need for big ol hats to hide her hair she’s always well put together. 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.”

    CTFU @ whoever referenced Aniston’s fans as a coven. Gotta remember that one.

  • jolie-pitt fan

    The cougar is trying hard to be like Angie. She is nothing compared to Angie.


    Angelina is the queen. She is old-time Hollywood glamour at its best. Everyone is fascinated with her every move and endeavor. She never seeks out publicity but the media follows her around like they are lap dogs because they know how extraordinary Angelina is and always will be. She doesn’t need flying lessons because she is an angel and can use her wings. ANGELINA MEANS ANGEL THE FIRST FIVE LETTERS OF HER NAME. i WISH SHE HAD THE AUTHORITY TO CHOP OFF THE HEADS OF HER DETRACTORS LIKE THE QUEENS OF OLD DID!

  • irma

    Hello everyone, in a few days, the twins will be 1 year old, I hope to see them again. Nice to see Angie in the cockpit again. I admire her remarkable resume : a pilot, humanitarian,philanthropist,UNHCR ( by the way I got a letter from UNHCR a thank you letter for my contribution),& a beautiful mother of 6 children, good partner to Brad Pitt & the lists goes on & on. She has accomplished a lot on her young age of 34. The Cougar can only show off her body in a bikini, tan,& dated so many men after Brad dumped her.
    God bless the Jolie-Pitt Family.

    Sony Hires New Writer to Salvage ‘Moneyball’
    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.

    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

    This must be another qualification level. As far as I know she is already a licensed flyer.

  • amy

    I was about to go out to work and I check this site once more there is Angie with her plane. We are getting spolied with the jp’s pics . They are one hot couple.

  • I agree

    @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

    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.

    good on z helping shi! they are so cute. yay jp’s

  • jaxon

    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!

  • Dani

    I love Angie, she is so gorgeous

    Angelina is super woman.I love her

  • passby

    Angie is living her life like we are…she is not worry about the haters or the tabloids. She has her family and that is her priority. You can tell she knows who she is and she is comfortable in her own skin with makeup or without makeup. The woman is naturally beautiful.

    jaxon @ 07/09/2009 at 8:59 pm
    Why wouldn’t Shiloh and Zahara bond? They’re sisters. Just because some siblings are adopted and others are biological doesn’t mean they can’t love each other.

    Always beautiful. I love her.

    I am LMFAO at those pics of deadend -jen. If she is trying to copy Angie from the Mr.and Mrs. Smith role from that delicious film 05 Oh man..Fagetaboutit!!
    and pls GMAFB!! what a freaking howl. She looks like an ole sot who hasn’t a clue how to act.

    no wonder ppl feel sorry for her she is pathetic.

    Angie Rocks!

  • YOU/ME

    Soooooooo happy to see Angie back to doing things like this!!! I miss seeing her flying planes, riding motorcycles, and generally thrill-seeking, its so much an essence of who she is. Yes she is a mom, and a great loving wonderful one….. but this……this is also a great and wonderful part of who she is :)

  • Jenho

    Since Angelina is flying a plane, does this mean she is leaving Brad and the kids? Every time the Jenretards see Brad on a motercycle, he is leaving Angelina and the kids.

  • AJ Fan

    I like everything about Angie. I always thought she was one very cool chick so when the x started her crap about Angie being uncool i lmao as the word COOL belongs to `~the Jolie.

    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!
    No wonder so many insecure women are jealous of her.
