Oh, how sweet, just love this family.

I’d love to be a fly in that room.

It must be weird for Brad to deal with not being the best looking guy there when he goes over to Johnny’s.

I don’t even mean that as a slam against Brad. There are people that would flock to Johnny over Brad if they were to see them together, and that, I imagine, would be strange for Pitt.

I always come on this site at the best times. Thanks JJ!! Great Pictures, and Brad is a true family man, as I always suspected him to be before I really cared for him. Just look at Angelina! She is the most gorgeous mommy of six I have ever seen. I am in awe. Fabulous Parents, great talents and being there for their family. Love them.

Cheater. blind item reveals brad is cheating on Angelina. look at him playing happy daddy and partner… he is so fake.

Glad that they are enjoying thier time even visiting Depps family and going to birthday parties.

Some Bunny @ 03/21/2010 at 3:34 pm

I just realized they are visiting JD? I bet Johnny and Brad are great friends. Angelina actually always reminded me of a female Johnny. That is not an insult. He is sxxy!

Brad is a great guy and treats Angelina like gold.

JJ, stop being stingy…we want to see all the little Jolie-Pitts, but thanks for the new pics. They are such a handsome family. I bet they have a blast with Johnny (and family if they are there) and laugh at all the BS lies.

Just because JJ thinks with his little head like Tiger doesn’t mean all men do this. Brad is a good man, he loves Angelina and his kids to much to lose it.

@brenda: if cheating on someone is treating them like gold… maybe fake gold … lol

Lucky Charm @ 03/21/2010 at 3:39 pm

Just imagine all the hotness and cuteness overload with these two families! I agree wtih Nicole, I would love to be a fly in that room, lol!

@nicole:
I will take Pitt over Depp any second.

Shiloh and Zahara are holding hands, so cute! What’s up with the delay in posting, it freezes JJ. To many adds with viruses attactched. What’s up with the doubleclick.net that keeps freezing?

what blind item are you talking about?

http://blindgossip.com/?p=16722

Hey, don’t tell me you haven’t heard the chatter about Jenny and her yoga teacher or MM’s female cousin…this could be her too but of course, that site will not say it but then lately some of the blinds tend to point to JA. Hmm, maybe HW execs are sending her a message now, so sad

to so sad @ 03/21/2010 at 3:44 pm

so brad is cheating on angelina. well if true, then i say great karma. what goes around comes around. now angie knows how jenn felt. no sympathy on my part

Five years going strong, no cheating unless you read craploids. Not all men are pigs. Brad is a winner and loves his family. Jesse was just a dog and didn’t think with his big head. Brad adores what he has. You’d be so tickled green if Brad did leave, just shows what kind of maggot you are.

Some Bunny @ 03/21/2010 at 3:44 pm

so sad? you know what’s sad? it’s so sad how picture of Brad right by the love of his life, Angelina Jolie’s side bring out the worse in people. I bet the pictures of those six beautiful babies, make them go completely bonkers.

@so sad:
You idiot believes every blind item is true and is about Brad or Angelina. You dumbass. LMAO.

Oh I wish someone would find that clip when a super-young Brad was on 21 Jump Street with Johnny D…they were both so young LOL…they’ve known each for ages.

Yeah, would love to a fly…would be so fun to see how all their kids interact together and the big kids too lol.

Look at sweet Shiloh with her gun holster on…so cute.

@to so sad: YEAH, I GUESS it’s karma if you’re one of the idiot women who blame Angelina for Brad leaving his marriage. i’ve always thought that was on Brad and brad was the one who pursued Angelina. he is just a cheater that’s all. A man with a wondering eye. not the good father and good partner brangelina fans want to believe.

Oh My Gosh how cute are Shi and Z? :D They have different styles and they’re both rocking them. mommy and daddy are gorgeous like always too. This family is just something else :D

can all of those angelina hating hags go back to your pilates class and gossip and talk about the next latte you’ll consume and when you’re going to ‘lay out’ while you chit chat about your coming cabo trip and how you’re gonna get a josé to teach you how to salsa…al the while you wrinkly arses get older and your pus_ssies get drier and looser, your prune like b!tches will start complainin gabout all of those hot guys going for the ‘exotic’ females and you wonder ‘whyyyyy’ your bf dumped you for a black hispanic chick, while you cry on your fat arsed friends shoulder lmfao

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 3:55 pm

LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM…..There’s my Zaharra!!

so sad, you really are an idiot if you believe every bulls*it blind item.

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 3:57 pm

AWWW!! SHILOH LOOKS SOOOO CA-UUUUUTE!!! I’M SO GLAD THEY ARE VISITING JOHNNY DEPP!! LOVE IT!!! HOPE TO SEE THEM ON A DOUBLE DATE SOON!! EEEEEEE!!! SO EXCITED!!! I JUST LOVE THAT JOHNNY AND BRAD HAVE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS FOR SO LONG AND ARE FINALLY ENJOYING MEETING ONE ANOTHER AND BEING THE ‘ELDER STATESMEN’ OF HOT HOLLYWOOD!!!

@well:

I second that. Brad is a confident and secure man, He has no time for BS

to some bunny @ 03/21/2010 at 4:01 pm

the reason pictures of brad with the “love of his life” beside him bring out the worst in people as you say is because those people don’t believe it. for my part, i can’t wait for andrew morton’s book to come out. from what i’ve heard, angie is going to be very unhappy to have her secrets on the written page. some people that andrew talked to are going to have to run for cover.

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 4:01 pm

oh….AND THERE’S MADDOX!!! LOVE THE LEATHER JACKET!!

Jennifer Aniston @ 03/21/2010 at 4:05 pm

- Can I have a skinny moccha choca latte please?

- To go?

- yes.

- would there be anything else with that?

- does the skinny moccha choca latte come with a man? …………PLEASE!!!!

- um…no

Brad cheating? Big surprise.

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 4:09 pm

Awwwww! Shiloh and Zaharra are holding each others hand in the forth picture!! So sweet! I hope all the kids become great friends!!

What a sweet gathering.

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 4:12 pm

Shiloh has what appears to be a little brown carrying holster hanging from her waiste….I wonder what that it….it looks so cute! I wonder if she came there with it, or if Johnny Depp or one of his kids gave that to her…..

Look at Shiloh’s hat!
Maybe she’s a Pirate of Caribbean fan?

@to some bunny: i really doubt anyone from Female First has any knowledge of what Andrew Morton is writing.LOL just keep in mind how you all thought Ian Halperin was da man. lol until his book came out. jenny paul released a book but Ff doesn’t like it because it doesn’t paint brad in the best light. according to paul brad was over Aniston long before he met Angie. But he was faking it for the press and good PR. he is a fake. what’s new?

Katsaridoula @ 03/21/2010 at 4:15 pm

they are all really cool people

LaurielovesJake @ 03/21/2010 at 4:15 pm

Awww the jolie-pitt family is so beautiful! i bet the angelina haters are grinding their teeth looking at these pics.

sheesh have some self respect woman!

@teri:

I think it’s that damn Kimora Lee Simmons advertisement, it’s freezing up every web site it’s posted on.

to some bunny (same as to sad..)
Andrew Morton books? about Angelina’s will be another waste of time, and also check 2 recent books talks about angelina and by the way who cares …!! (you )

I wish to see this family soon (even in a far distance). God bless them. Thanks JJ. Hello to all JP fans. Have a nice day….but, I know I’ll be back to read all the good comments and hope to see more pics.

Kick Ass Premiere London tomorrow. Just been told Brad Pitt will be there.

HAHAAHAHHA… oH, how the Brad/Angie Haters are all green and steaming right now! HAHAHAAHAHHA… I LOVE IT LOVE IT! LOVE IT! I love to see my enemies squirm out of hate!!! HAHAHAHA…

This family is carrying on with no care in the world and GOING TO JOHNNY DEPP’S home!!! and all the haters right now just want to run to the kitchen and grab a knife to stab them in their own hearts out of disappointment!! HAHAHAHA..

Elizabeth @ 03/21/2010 at 4:39 pm

Now I noticed the pic Z holding Shi’s hand…what a very good sight. Pic #6 Shi’s smiling at the gent carrying her mays she is “thinking pls dont drop me” I can’t get enought of this family. And Mad so handsome…wondering where is Pax….rascal Pax….I luv all the children .

brad pitt @ 03/21/2010 at 4:41 pm

beautiful familyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Brad and angie/ jonnny and vanessa, both super hot Mega A plus-list devoted couples with children who didn’t get married, just living their lives And Johnny is like Brad they both could have been trapped by their looks or taken those romcom movies for money but both deliberately chose parts to get away from that. They all have alot in common. True blue real movie stars together. Love it

@fyi: Let’s hope they ask him about his cheating and why he plays fake happy family photos for paparazzi.

What a beautiful friendship — two gorgeous couples and their kids getting along fine. Haters thought they wouldn’t get along, look at that, the two families have become good friends. The children will be bffs as their moms. Haters lying as always, Vanessa Paradis didn’t want JD to do the movie with Angie haha. You guys couldn’t be more wrong. I’m loving your pain. SUCK IT JEALOUS HATERS!!!

Great to see them together

why would a parent put on their child a DEATH symbol??? it’s beyond me.

sorry brad the beard just can’t hide the fineness anymore you look HOT. just love the man.

Manny Bigger Joke Than Ever @ 03/21/2010 at 4:46 pm

manny has been embarrassing herself all over the place and her leatherface will never live down the stench of these horrendous reviews…so what do the trolls do? Attack the JPs- again- drag out all the tab lies- books, tv shows, blind items- ALLof them wrong for over 5 years. So sorry- lying about the JPs doesn’t make manny any less of a loser. Here is nice video that should help set the trolls straight:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=246p7jtSCTU
ps- VERY MUCH looking forward to Kick A*s, SALT, TOL, Tourist, etc.

Johnny is hotter and prettier than brad by far!!!!!! brad maybe is jelous of johnny,come on ..did you see how angie look at johnny,when she is with him she can´t stop smile,well she is doing a movie with the sexiest man alive ever!!

Shiloh looks cool…

@queen bee:

Aww, thanks for posting that video. That’s why I love Brad and Angie. My sister stays here and just walked by and asked what I was watching (she had to say how many women Russell Brand has slept with) I said I don’t give a sh!t, he’s helping people. It is always the ones that march to the beat of their own drummer that are the most helpful to the world. Thanks to Russell Brand, BBC and Brad & Angelina for all they do for the world.

************************************

Put up or STFU, so sad…because you really are …so freaking sad.

HA…HA…Angie said that she LIKES more JOHNNY THAN BRAD!!!!!!! FACE IT !!! I think the same angie!!!

Such a gorgeous family.

I just realized, don’t both the Jolie-Pitt and Depp families live in France? Not sure where Angelina and Brad have a home but I heard Johnny has one in the south of France? Thought that was interesting. And by “interesting” I actually mean…it’s just an interesting commonality they have. Besides the fact that Angelina and Johnny are two of the most gorgeous people in the business! France gets all the beautiful people! lol

Side note: Why is everyone so invested in these people? You guys don’t even KNOW this family, yet you all fiercely argue for one side or another of every minuscule crap you read and perceive. You all take apart how they stand next to each other and vehemently argue how Jennifer Aniston fits into their lives with the way they stand. Jennifer Aniston wears a bathing suit because she’s on vacation on a beach, and that has everything to do with trying to win Brad back…5 years and many experiences later. Fanatics like the ones online, like right here, are beyond pathetic. I skimmed through only a couple comments here, not really reading any but I know that kind of crap is exactly what everyone’s always talking about. You all need some electroshock therapy sh-t because you all are fanatical about people you have never and probably will never interact with in all your damned, miserable lives.

ok…WHAT??? Did little Shiloh get an sex change or something??
why is she ALWAYS dressed so un-feminem like a BOY!!!!!!???????? if you didnt know her youd think she was their SON!!!!!!!!

ELLLES @ 03/21/2010 at 4:46 pm

ı love you brad pitt

Brad Pitt is the best looking man in my book always.

Haters are losing it. their idol has the devil’s touch, every movie she makes bombs and she is getting bad reviews left, right and centre. The losers hoping the JPs will not become friends with JD and his partner also blew up in their faces. They are now on a hating rampage, but it ain’t gonna change anything, maniston is still a crapy no talent actress, no man wants and Brad is still in love with Angie. Hahaha !!

JENHAG(hatesangie'sguts) @ 03/21/2010 at 5:15 pm

Funny as heck–they are now dressing Shiloh just like Jesse James. Gosh, I bet he’s Brad’s idiol. LOL

@fyi:

SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT!!!

Beautiful Family

This family never smiles. Shiloh is looking like a boy, yet again.

I’m a fan of Angie, Brad and Johnny Depp. What great talent and beauty of all of them, Vanessa too. I bet they all have fun with their two families. The tabloids are full of it, creating lies to sell their copies.
As for the people talking about Jennifer, I reckon CNN calling her out, her copycatting in W magazine, and the countless references to the Jolie-Pitts in interviews the last 5 years has finally caused a back-lash, name-dropping Zahara and Knox Jolie-Pitt was just too much. Jennifer and her fans caused it themselves.

And yet again you jennaypoops are here on ANGELINA AND BRADS thread talking smack. You need to help your mannifer out since her bomb of a movie doesn’t look so great.

Can’t wait for The Tourist to come out. My two favourite actors in the same movie, I can’t ask for more.

@so sad:

Understand please that those responding to you are doing so for THEIR entertainment. Please, don’t make the mistake of overvaluing your comment. Everyone here knows you’re just blowing raspberries. It is best for you that you keep some grip on reality.

yeah there are similarities. both the jolie-pitts and depps both live in France. Both not married to their girlfriends and both have blonde children

In the last pic I can see Zahara and Shiloh holding hands. So cute! I like Zahara and Shiloh’s outfits, both very adorable. Maddox is always the cool kid. I don’t see Pax but I’m sure he’s there somewhere. Angie and Brad make one gorgeous couple. I’m sure they had a great visit with Johnny Depp. It must be a real treat for the kids to meet the man who played Captain Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter!

Box Office: ‘Wimpy Kid’ kids Anisler’s butt
| More Print
12:37 PM, March 21, 2010 ι Lou Lumenick
Fox scored its fourth modestly-budgeted family hit in four months with “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” which opened in second place with a much better than anticipated $22.5 million. That’s an estimated $1.5M ahead of Sony’s massively-promoted (and critically trashed) “The Bounty Hunter,” whose highly-paid stars, Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, have promoted it by canoodling in public. Ugh.
.
+++++++++++++++++++++++
.
LMAO. Gosh…even the NYPost, who are usually all up in X’s ass, are making fun her fauxmance PR tactics. When X’s allies are calling BS on her – she’s in deep doo-doo. She’s relied on these people to push her agenda for so long that she won’t know what to do now that the tide is turning. Too bad the NY Post didn’t remember her history of fraud when they printed that stupid story about her and Bloatler making out in the kitchen at the GGs. They gladly and willingly helped perpetuate her lies and fraud so they have little reason to express exasperation about them now.

Passing Through @ 03/21/2010 at 6:07 pm

Okay…the pix of Shiloh are cracking me up. It’s official for me – Shiloh is definitely emulating Maddox while channeling a little Brad with her style elements. How hilarious. I remember in the twins Peeps pix there was one of Shiloh sitting on Madd’s lap clowning around with him when the pic was snapped.

The spin has begun
.
“We had figured an estimate in the high teens, so 20-plus million is a good number for us,” said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony.
.
++++++++++++++++++
.
Right on cue, too. We knew as soon as the BO estimates came out folks would start defending the shittty numbers. The thing is – nobody spends the amount of money they did on marketing this dog if all they’re expecting is “high teens”. That’s total bull. I don’t know who paid for the marketing, Sony or Relativity, or if they split it 50/50, but they had to have spent $40mil – minimum. With a $40mil production budget a “high teens” estimate meant they only espected to recoup $8-9mil of their $80mil investiment the first weekend…KNOWING that in subsequent weeks the movie was going to post significantly decreased numbers. Next week there’s Dreamwork’s How to Train Your Dragon, Hot Tub Machine which should cater to some of the same crowd at TBH; the following week there’s Clash of the Titans and a Tyler Perry Movie; what would be TBH’s 4th weekend sees the release of the Tina Fey/Steve Carrell movie Date Night – which will definitely appeal to the same audience as TBH.
.
Using some common sense here – there’s no way in hell Sony could possibly have been expecting “high teens”. Recouping barely 1/8 of your investment in the first weekend when you KNOW your movie is going to get lost in the upcoming deluge of films appealing to more quadrants than yours is a ridiculous spin – even for HW. This movie is going to top out at around $40mil domestic. We haven’t seen the foreign numbers yet, but it’s probably going to be about the same for a total of $80-90mil – $40-45mil for the studio or roughly 1/2 of what they spent on prod. and marketing. I’d love to hear the Sony execs who greenlighted this dog explain to the chairman how they expect to recoup the remainder of the $40mil they’re in the hole for – especially since the studios keep whining about decreased dvd revenues. You know X’s movies don’t command much demand in rental and tv revenues. So where’s the balance supposed to come from? Let alone a freaking profit. Just admit it Sony – you’re losing a buttload of money all because you were dumb enough to greenlight an awful script and putting known box office poison in the lead role sure as hell didn’t help matters.

Not only RS radio show but on USA channel hosting a movie while promoting their movie. They were on ESPN doing the same thing . Ads on pre game of Superbowl, the NBA all star game, Oscars and Golden Globes., David Letterman, Regis and Kelly,W mag, Artiecture digest and GB did some men magazine. Acess Hollywood gave the movie a whole week of promotion center around X bikini show. Add to that all the normal promotion on the web (yes
even JJ), magazine ads and billboards).
.
This is how a major motion pic is promoted. Not how a ” We hope this makes high teens on opening week” is promoted.

Word! Yeah…Sony is talking out of their asses with “high teens”. High teens on an $80+mil investment with 3 straight weeks of big movies – 2 in 3D – following their initial weekend? Puh-leeze.

PT, the movie is bad and don’t deserve it, but it will do a profit for Sony.
If you look for articles, you’ll see that to make a profit studios need that the movie make at least two times his budget in box office. Tv rights and DVDs pay for the marketing.
In the first week in the international market (with only two major markets) it made 8 million. Then, you can say that it will do much more than 50 million international. Plus at least 50 million USA, it will do more than 100 million.
The movie is bad, but sony’s marketing is good, and it’ll do a profit, like it or not.
And I don’t know why you care so much about her box office.

Yep, thats how I see the BH movie, a manufactured piece of sh!t put together in a few months.
.
++++++++++++++++++

Buzz Kill -
.
Here’s the hilarity of this – it WASN’T put together in a few short months. It was almost 9 months from the time X and Bloatler were seen eating lunch with Andy Tenant – very publicly at that. X/Huvane had previously created fake rumors about Bloatler and X getting together after at a rooftop party after misManagement played TIFF in Sept. 2008. Lamey reported it in her column and the week after they were seen having lunch with Tenant suddenly all the tabs were saying X and Bloatler were an item – which was undoubtedly fed to them by X/Huvane. Ergo early marketing of the fauxmance was going on even in late September 2008!
.
I digressed…my point was – it was well over 9 months between the time X & Bloatler signed on to the movie in late Sept. 2008 to when it started filming in May or June 2009. They had 9 months to fix that script and this shite was the best they could come up with? And if this was the final draft – what did the initial draft that was originally greenlit look like? THAT is the scary part. Someone greenlit this mess thinking it was a good script. Makes me shudder just thinking about it.

Oh lookie, miss boxoffice expert is back.

@aj: aj, Aniston’s movies have never done well in the foreign market. Because of Butler there might be some money in Britain but his movies have not done well in foreign BO either. Also, a $40M movie with massive PR which cost, at a minimum, $30-$40M needs to earn much more than $100M to break even, let alone earn a profit. Remember, Sony only gets part of whatever profit there is; they have to share with Relativity, don’t they?

QQQQ @ 03/21/2010 at 6:38 pm
Yes, I am.
If all movies had to make 100 million USA, nobody will do 40 million pictures.
In general, only expensives movies – more than 70 million – make more than 100 million. There is a few exceptions (The Blind side, The Proposal, etc,).
And a lot of expensives movies – Green Zone, The Land of the Lost, etc. – are big loosers.
You don’t like JA. That’s ok. Her movies are, in general, bad. That’s ok.
But, sorry, this movie is not a box office fail. It deserves to be a box office fail, but it’s not.
And this is important cause you think that Changeling is not a fail. And Changeling only made two times his budget (110 million wordwide for a 55 million picture).
You can’t have both sides.

@lylian: I really was expecting only $8.5M but I forgot Sony had picked a weekend where nothing new was coming out except a children’s movie. They did a great job of picking the best weekend and the are lucky this crap earned $20M. Sony must be hyperventilating because their movie was beated by a children’s movie that cost next to nothing and was not advertised at all!!! “Upper teens” my foot!! They were hoping for $30M at least!! This bomb is going to drop 80% next weekend and be out of the top 10 by the week after. Somebody should be shot for putting this piece of trash out there.

Please, I dont need your dumb ass bogus information. Keep deluding yourself that u are an expert

this is a wonderful family – look how balanced and at peace the children look. Little Shiloh, Zahara, Pax and Maddox – they all have their own unique charisma. That only evolves from good parenting by parents who give the children confidence and who reflect joy in their presence. this family makes me happy to see how well they are doing.

mslewis @ 03/21/2010 at 7:18 pm
I only projecting. In general, you can say that a movie will do at least 3 times his first weekend in that market. With 2 international markets (UK and Russia plus 6 minor markets), it makes 8 million. Then, it’ll do at least 24 million in these markets (UK, Russia, plus 6 minor markets). But there is still 8 major markets to open and a lot of minor markets, then you can say that it’ll do more than 50 million.
Yes, if it makes only 100 million Sony will do only a small profit. And a small profit will not make Sony executives happy .
But a small profit is not a major fail, and doesn’t affect JA career, like it or not.

I wish I had a dime for every “Brad/Angelina cheated” blind item revealed. I could afford to fund an X bomb! Buzzfoto already pulled this once with NannyGate and had zero proof. OuttaTouch got laughed at with the stupid language instructor cheating story. All of this supposed cheating and none of these losers can come up with smoke let alone a smoking gun at a time when every other cheating celeb’s ho is scoring their 15 minutes of fame plus big money to tell the world about their stank celeb affair. Amazing.

Please, Universal did NOT $50M on advertisement for Changeling. The movie was shown in less than 1900 theaters compared to 3000+ for the hags piece of sh*t which was rated PG13 compared to R. Changeling did great on DVD. **** Happens has already been shown on Lifetime.

Next thing this idiot expert will be telling us that Sh*t Happens did wonders for Sony’s bottom line. Get the hell of her with your B/S

Awards & Critcially Acclai @ 03/21/2010 at 7:34 pm

Changeling is an rated R, critically acclaimed award winning movie that is a source of pride for all involved. Manny’s movie is PG, critically hated embarrassment that is a career-killer. Changeling’s box office was far better than the other movies for the best actress nominees- that is what you should be comparing it to…if you are a true manny fan, compare her to people in her league- Kathrine H, sandy B, jessica a & b…manny never has and never will get a chance at a part Angie wants. She MAY (well, after 3rd bomb in a row, it’s ever-doubtful) get a chance at a Jessica A or KH movie, but the constant comparisons to an multi-award winning sought-after actress like Angie makes manny look like an even bigger loser.

queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 7:35 pm

Hello, all. So happy to read the fans’ posts again, and so glad FillerFaceManiston’s movie tanked at the bo. No $39M on opening weekend like TBU with Vince Vaughn in it. Vince’s last movie only scored 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, but still raked in $38M on opening weekend. So we know who was the bo draw in TBU. It wasn’t Maniston.

QQQQ @ 03/21/2010 at 7:34 pm
I didn’t say that it is a success.
A bad movie with moderate box office never will be a success.
I only saying that you are overreacting about the numbers.

There is no comparision in quality (Changeling is a good movie, Bounty Hunter is an awful movie, that I will not see).

Red-Faced Manny @ 03/21/2010 at 7:49 pm

Again, we are talking only about box office. Sadly, a lot of bad movies (like The BH) are not fails at box office.
I have talked about Changeling before. It’s a drama with a difficult subject. This kind of movie is a difficult sell, specially in USA.
You know that Changeling made less than 10 million in first wide weekend USA. And besides the subject matter, there was Universal problems: they made bad marketing and they released the movie wide in Halloween, one of the worst days for movies.
And because of these, like it or not, it failed in USA (only 35 million). Overseas it did good (77 million).
But Changeling is not the subject.
And there is a good thing about BH box office: Sony marketing can make 21 million with a bad movie.
If the movie is good they will do much more.
Salt, The Tourist and Moneyball are Sony Pictures. I think they will be good pictures.
Then, you can expect good box office, cause there will be good marketing.
That’s it.

OH BOY my guess was 21 million too.. close.

I will donate my copy of The Bounty DVD to charity.. have an auction or something’

Anyway I see that freak is posting that crap about Brad, It did so on the last tread to.. Sad. These fools don’t know Mr. Pitt. he does not cheat.
When Gwenny cheated on him.. he left.. When he reached the end of his marriage with Aniston he left..

Well Mr. Pitt is very much still with his family..
Brad does not cheat..

The Odyssey (2012) (in production) (rumored)
.
++++++++++++++++++++++
.
IMDB is listing this as rumored to be “in production”? Interesting if true. The plan for this was to turn it into a space fantasy with Brad playing the captain of a ship trying to get back home after a long intergalactic war (ie, the Trojan War in the epic poem) and then intersperse Odysseus’ struggles to do that throughout the movie. It would be interesting to see who they would get to play Odysseus’ wife Penelope and his son. Penelope has to fend off a ton of suitors after Odysseus was declared dead, but who knows how they’d re-work that for a futuristic sci-fi fantasy.

What a goodlooking couple and sweet kids. I was so happy for them when they got together in 05. Can’t believe the jealousy from the Maniston fans but whatever. That will have to be their problem but you would think after 5 yrs they would zip it.
I had a feeling when i heard about this movie Angie and JD are making that they would all become good friends if they weren’t already and here we have them visiting each other which is great to see.
Maybe Angie and Brad will take a tip from Johnny and Vanessa and buy a little island of their own in the Bahamas too.
Talk about privacy you can’t beat that.
I wish the JP’s the very best and am excited about seeing Angie’s two films Salt and this one she is making with JD ‘The Tourist’.
Can’t wait!

Cute pics of a tight-knit family. Love how they all have their individual sense of style. Wonder if Shiloh is checking for her silkie in that last pic? LOL.

Whooo-hoooo!! Great weekend. Lot’s of JP photos. TBH came in 3rd at the B.O. Anyone who did go see it now resents the heII out of Rachel for wasting their time and their hard-earned money. More importantly, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp (the three hottest people on this planet) are hangin’ out with the kids on a Sunday like regular Joes. Love it!

Oh wow just nice…

JJ,

Thank you for the HIDDEN COMMENTS. The fans can come back here again and have an enjoyable visit. :))) Thanks a zillion!

I don’t know why $21M OW is not a fail for a movie that cost $40M, was released in 3,074 theaters and starred supposedly America’s Sweetheart (yeah right, more like Shiteheart), with an all-out promotion that cost $40M. The Ugly Truth, of the same genre, same leading man with an actress less well-known than fugly, had a $38M budget, was released in 2,882 theaters, was nowhere near $40M in advertising, yet made $27M on its OW. Why always try to coddle fugly? She’s not some delicate porcelain, she’s a hard-nosed, fraudulent self-centered beeyatch with fans to match.

Beautiful family…

The kids probably love Johnny. Imagine seeing the Mad Hatter or Jack Sparrow real and up close.

LMAO!!! Somewhere Tom is having a tantrum…after all he and Katie tried to get a playdate going with the JP girls and lil’ Suri and it just didn’t quite work!

LMAO!!! Somewhere Tom is having a tantrum…after all he and Katie tried to get a playdate going with the JP girls and lil’ Suri and it just didn’t quite work!

Why do the haters always bring up Changeling or A Mighty Heart to compare to Aniston.. Why.. Why..

Why not talk about other women. Changeling made more money then Kate’s film, Meryl’s Doubt and Anne’s film but they have to bring up an Angie film makes no sense at all. none. Different genres. Different movies.. I blame the release date on both of Angie’s last films too. A Mighty Heart released in the Summer and Changeling in October.. not good dates as far as I was concerned. but whatever. Angie was superb in both those films..

But she has nothing to do with the BO of Aniston. Why is she being brought up. As if she is the only actress working. Really. just dumb.

Are you back to using this name now? You were “box office” the other day. Make up your mind already.
.
Secondly, Ms. I Live In Brazil, if YOU can find the numbers for the tv deals and dvd sales/rentals on X’s bombs you’ll see that they don’t bring in all that much. misManagement was given away for FREE on Netflix and sold practically nothing in dvd sales. The tv deal went to Lifetime for God’s sake, so you know it was a cheap deal. Shite Happens has tanked on video just as it did in theaters. Marley & Me was based on a multi-million selling book and sold moderately well on DVD. However the 2 movies that followed it, which I just mentioned, haven’t made much money post-theatrical release at all. What makes you think it would be any different for The Bounty Hunter?
.
Sony is NOT going to make their money back on this movie. Using your own math, if the dud does $100MIL worldwide, which is a real stretch, the studio gets $50MIL and is still in the hole $30-40MIL. Prove to me that Bountiless is going to earn that much jack after market with all the better movies of the same genre which will see DVD release around the same time. Good luck with that endeavor.

Breseis,your point about the 3000 cinemas is a fair one.
.
However, I think aj has a point which is that Bomby isn’t an abject failure – which is what a bomb is.
.
But whether it will break even with production and marketing costs added in is another question. If it breaks even, it will be a moderately successful movie. If looses money, it’s probably moderately bad. Because a HIT it simply – is NOT.
.
Right now, Dedn is probably just starting to breathe a sigh of relief that her movie didn’t bomb.
.
Like many here, I believe the movie has no legs. Those who are interested in seeing a Gutless/Dedn movie have been. There’s no reason for those not that interested to wanna go and see it. It’s simply not a cool movie where repeats are warranted and word of mouth will kill it.
.
But I do think that when even major stars like Sandra and Julia Robertson have difficulty sustaining their career over the age of 40, it’s unlikely we will see Dedn doing a whole heap more on screen other than bit pieces. For the next Sandler movie, she’s sharing the screen with 2 other YOUNG women.
.
Dedn’s road to oblivion began when Friends finished and her performance in Derailed got panned. Let’s give Dedn credit for hanging in there doing something she SUCKS at for as long as she has.

heheheheheheheheheheh

People are just effing tired of self-absorbed Aniston. I wonder is she still ignoring her mother.

Angie is Only 34 @ 03/21/2010 at 8:57 pm

Angie is only 34 and her life-time box office exceeds many actresses YEARS and YEARS older than her. Not only that, she has managed to have six kids and get many, many awards. She works far less than many of her “peers” and makes far more money. In addition, she has her pick of projects and is not afraid to make a rated R movie with a tough subject matter. She has also taken very large chunks of time off and, when when she is ready to work again, the best of the best are clamoring to work with her. So, yeah, stop comparing her to others- esp JA. Such comparisons just make manny, who is older w/ no kids & tons more time, look even more pathetic.

@karen:

Because those are the only 2 movies they have to compare. The rest of jolie’s releases kick Aniston’s untalented behind at the Boxoffice. Jolie’s Domestic lifetime is 1.4 billion while Aniston hasn’t seen a billion yet. Worlwide Aniston sees a lifetime gross of 1 billion but then Jolie’s Worlwide gross is 3 billion again she kicks Aniston’s fading A**. She we compare Marley & Me (her biggest hit of late) to Wanted? They use Changeling but they forget that Jolie also had 2 other movies that same year. Let’s talk about that shall we? hmmm:

Marley & Me – Total Worldwide gross-$242,717,113 (Very good jen)
Wanted – Total Worlwide Gross-$341,433,252 (mmm…hmmm like I said kicked a**)

We could use Kung Fu Panda – $631,744,560 but that would REALLY make Aniston really saaaaad and pathetic. We should also remember that Jolie became the first actress in the 2008 Guinness World Records to make a billion dollars in one year at the boxoffice another feet Aniston will NEVER beat.

I say…since they both have a movie coming out this year again, lets compare. Salt vs Bounty Hunter. I wager Salt will see the upperside of 300 million while Bounty Hunter will barely make it past 130 million.

@Jane:
I heard or read a brief interview a few days ago [can't remember where] and she mentioned that she had ‘GREAT FRIENDS’…not one mention …about a FAMILY…about a BROTHER…about a FATHER and certainly nothing about a MOTHER…only ‘FRIENDS’.

I like how she doesn’t ever offer any numeric proof of her theory. Find me the numbers that say X’s movies do well after theatrical release. They don’t because they barely do business at the box office. So how in the hell could they make money off DVD sales/rentals and tv revenue? No cable chanell is going to offer huge dollars to air X’s flix. They have minimal appeal beyond Lifetime, We and Oxygen. They don’t do well on PPV and Netfix can’t give the shite away for free. So where is the post-theatrical release $40-50mil going to come frome? Other than out of “AJ’s” ass, of course.

LOL..Ummmm…no thanks to TBH DVD. I wouldn’t watch that crap if someone paid me. I am very proud to say I haven’t seen any of Jen’s movie…because I actually prefer quality movies..

so all 4 of the older kids were there. Jared you can add that if you want. I was waiting for someone to comment on Why did they not take Pax? and make a stupid comment. Now we know.. the 4 older ones were with Mommy and Daddy.

A Mighty Heart and to a lesser degree, Changling were PASSION projects, something Jenifer knows NOTHING about and something Angie lives her life by.
Jen mails it in in life and art and that is why she means means very little outside the boardrooms of committee hacks.

lylian: I understand that TBH is not a bomb, but considering how much its promo was, how the fauxmance was shoved down our throats since like forever, with $21M TBH is still a fail — especially since the Wimpy Kid made a tad more with not much promo, no known stars, less budget. It’s not a bomb like Shite Happens, but still a fail.

Why all this crapola about Brad cheating? How come no one and nothing has come up — no texts, no mistresses’ accounts of their trysts, no nothing. In these days of Tiger Woods and Jesse James, don’t you think that if a man of BP’s stature actually cheated, proofs would have come out by now? Any woman he “cheated” with would get more than the $30,000 that “Bombshell” received from InTouch.

ITAWU.

It’s not a bomb (too bad) BUT DEFINITELY NOT A HIT. which I think thats what the two leading stars were really aching for, afterall, Dedn is already 41, with her recent 2 bombs, Sandra Bullock and Julia Robert are back , and newcomer Katherine Heigl is already overtaking her in popularity.

The opening is just so-so, of course Sony spokeman had to said they were satisfied , blah, blah …. with the result. But I think not.
With those omnipresent , large budget marketing, Sony definitely is expecting more .,

Well, Eddie Murphy crappy comedy , panned by critiis every where used to make a lot of money, until peoples get tired of those antics , and trash. Look, where is Eddie now. I give Dedn upmost another 2 years ,then she will be everywhere opening a Hotel.

I only projecting. In general, you can say that a movie will do at least 3 times his first weekend in that market. With 2 international markets (UK and Russia plus 6 minor markets), it makes 8 million. Then, it’ll do at least 24 million in these markets (UK, Russia, plus 6 minor markets). But there is still 8 major markets to open and a lot of minor markets, then you can say that it’ll do more than 50 million.
.
++++++++++++++++++

ROTFLMAO. Would it be mean of me to point out that “AJ” has just regurgitating and spinning the EXACT numbers listed in THR’s international box office report from this afternoon? Yet, she STILL doesn’t explain how Sony is going to make up the difference is prod/mktg costs with INCOME in after-theatrical release sales. She just needs to stop while she’s behind.

No. 5 was Sony’s “The Bounty Hunter,” director Andy Tennant’s romantic husband-ex-wife comedy costarring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, which opened at 1,175 screens in eight markets for an estimated $8 million on the weekend. A No. 3 U.K. bow grossed $3.2 million from 397 sites while a Russian bow generated $3 million from 456 situations.

What a gorgeous son they have. I’m talking about Shiloh.

What a gorgeous son they have. I’m talking about Shiloh.

don't bother @ 03/21/2010 at 9:47 pm

don’t even bother comparing ja’s films or box office numbers with angelina’s. it’s like comparing a broken down trailer with a luxury mansion. ja is not even in the same league. she tries really, really hard but it will never happen. it’s extremely insulting to angelina to be compared to that low class H O.

it’s just so unfortunate that brad made such a colossal mistake marrying that phoney. i’m sure if he could he would completely wipe out that period of his life. if it weren’t for that disaster of a marriage, no one would ever place ja and angelina in the same thought or sentence.

and more importantly, ja would have faded into oblivion after that sitcom ended. i hope that she’s grateful to brad for how far she’s gotten (not very far but much further than she ever would have done on her own). and now thanks to angelina, she’s still relevant. ugh. ugh. just so effing ugh.

oops sorry Jared. you did. MY BAD.

Passing Through @ 03/21/2010 at 8:54 pm
And about the rest of your post.
Only studios knows how much they make with tv and DVD worldwide.
I only repeat what I read: that, in general, studios expect to recoop marketing expenses with TV rights and DVDs.
Almost every movie need TV rights and DVD to make a profit. You can see in box officemojo (only a few movies make more than 2 times his budget). You can find Variety. I don’t remember the number, but I think that less than 20% of the movies make a profit only with box office.
But I don’t care if BH makes a profit or not. It will do, but it’s not important.
I’m talking about box office annalysis and that in many times you make bad annalysis. And it is important because we will have Angie’ s movie in a near future. Salt (a 100 million picture, I think) and The Tourist (a 60 million picture or less, cause GK said that it is a small budget picture). Salt will need 100 million USA, but The Tourist not.
If Salt do 100 million USA it will be a hit, but it’ll only be a big hit if it makes 300 million worldwide.
The Tourist will be a big hit with 200 million worldwide.
That’s it: different movies, different budgets and different box office potencials.
For example: You can’t expect the same box office of Alice for Salt. Alice is a 4 quadrants movies. Salt is not for kids, for example, than it can’t be a 500 million worldwide picture.

Passing Through @ 03/21/2010 at 9:42 pm
You are not dumb.
You know the difference.
8 million is The Hollywood Repoter number.
At least 50 million (with at least 24 million in the markets already opened) is my projection.
The Hollywood reporter article don’t make any projection, cause it’s too early.
The movie needs to open in more markets.
But, I’m sure that I can say at least 50 million, cause UK and Russian numbers are solids.
You can see that a lot of 100 million overseas pictures made less than 10 million total (not weekend) in these markets.

@gracie:

i totally agree with you!

last month they were front page breakup news. but look who was breaking up? Sandra and Jesse due to jesse’s cheating. Kate Winslet and SAm Mendes…Charlez Theron and her man. — THE REAL BREAKUPS not Brad and Angie. They’re living happily ever after with kids in tow. SUCK IT HATERS!

don't bother @ 03/21/2010 at 10:08 pm

can you imagine how freaking perfect everything would be if it weren’t for ja? two ridiculously good looking, respected actors with 6 beautiful kids, doing incredible humanitarian work around the world. but no. tragically, there’s ja, like a freaking incurable, recurring s-t-d, breaking the freak out, whining for attention.

UGH Please @ 03/21/2010 at 10:08 pm

@juju:

No they are not wrong more than 3 different sites posted the same numbers…for both films but if you have better numbers then post the numbers and shut the haters up. As far as i’m concerned it doesn’t matter jolie is still the QUEEN of the boxoffice.

@aj:

I don’t dispute your logic and I will give you the benefit of the doubt as to your motives here but I think you too are jumping to conclusions if you think Sony is going to be happy about this movie. Remember this is the OPENING weekend of a movie with prospects of TERRIBLE LEGS. There is spin that we get fed and then there is the nervous reality of the money men. And as you say, you can’t have it both ways; she works for people who want the comfort of Avatar and have absolutely no interest in any kind of risky project. These people have no interest in films like A Mighty Heart. They are after the “sure’ thing and if an actress is only a borderline “sure” thing then she is in fact NOT a sure thing. Angie and Brad might lose money on a film but it is allowed in their case. Not so with Jen. She has been sold STRICTLY as a money making machine. Her investors will forgive anything but that.

lulu @ 03/21/2010 at 9:42 pm
You are right about Sony. They expected more. Cause this year, they only have two possible tentpoles (Salt and The Green Hornet).
Probably, this year Sony will do less than 1 billion USA and worst overseas (overseas, you can say that some of Sony’s movies will not do well, like “Dear John” and “Death at a Funeral”) .
And they have few movies this year: only four until april, none in May.

@Mel: @Jill:

if it bothers you so much.. stop looking.. both of you hags. should STFU and raise you own children if you have them. Shiloh looks pretty happy to me.

NOT your child. and none of your business..

Go put you nose in matters that concern you.. and with children who are being hurt and abused. Shiloh ain’t one of them.

I don’t know why Rachel is compared to Angelina Jolie. AJ can open a film because aside from her acting ability she has screen presence. Even when AJ isn’t the lead she is still the one that lights up the screen when she appears…case in point Girl Interrupted. Rachel opened Management and it closed in her face. She is a tv girl who stayed in a tv sitcom so long it limited and stunted her experience but she married an Alister and thought she was bigger than him….she is deluded and surrounds herself by sychophants….family is better because they are more likely to be candid…but Rachel doesn’t do family I guess she will meet with her mother at her mother’s funeral and maybe then regret being such a hard nosed, hard hearted, mean, unforgiving person especially when the rom-coms dry up and the sychophants move on to fresher, younger fields.

Neil @ 03/21/2010 at 10:08 pm
I liked your post.
Studios don’t like drama’s movies.
And they are doing less movies. Paramount, for example, are doing almost only tentpoles. They don’t like risks.
BH is not a riskie picture. Studios make a lot of romcoms. And, a lot of romcoms are midlevel hits. Only a few are hits (or big hits), but few lost money too.
Last year, I think that only two romcoms movies made more than 100 million USA (The proposal and It’s Complicated).
But there is a few midlevel hits (He’s not that into you, The Ugly Truth, etc).

@karen:

Karen, ITAWU!
These a-holes sit around and rag on Shiloh [a cute, happ, 'rich' kid with loving parents and] ignore the poor kids in their own neighborhoods who could really use their help, care and input.
They just wanna talk about the JP’s b/c they don’t give a damn about the real world out there. It’s too much for them…soo much easier to sit on their azzes, gossip and put down ANYTHING B&A do. ANYTHING!

Given how awful TBH is, the opening weekend needed to be big in order to make a profit. The way it was marketed, it need to open at 30 million or so. I have never seen a movie marketed this much. It was nonstop everywhere….

No studio will market this way and expect it to open in teens. Sorry…that’s idiotic. Otherwise, why not market small and hope to make even with ticket, DVD, and TV rights? I didn’t see much marketing for Repo-Man or Wimpy kid movie?

Studios now know that even with mass marketing and over 3000 theatres for Jen’s movie, she still cannot open big. Sorry, no studio is going to spend that much money on her again.

I predict Jen will no longer be a main draw and she will be forever the wife/girlfriend/best friend to the main draw.

I don’t understand why you’re all so concerned with box office numbers for either JA or AJ…neither can act so why not discuss something important? The only thing JA has going for her is that she doesn’t look like an undernourished scarecrow like Jolie.

EXACTLY !!!!!

If isony’s predicting a mid-teen opening as thye said, which I think tthat ‘s a good reason for saving face . It won’t throwed those amount of money in marketing, I bet the marketing must have cost more than the movie itself. which at least a minimum of 50 millions. They thought if Ugly truth and Fools gold could open on > 20 million, with Maniston supposed to be a biggger star than Heigl and Kate Hudson. , bountiless should open to a t least 30 . but blah. Maniston is not Katherine Heigl, she ‘s upmost on the same level as kate Hudson .

To me, it’s a failure if you spent that much money in advertising and can only open with 20M.

To me, studios will pick Heigl in the future over Aniston.

To me, I’m sure Aniston is DISAPPOINTED at the numbers.

But , Aniston will breathe a sigh of relief that it did NOT fail BIG.

I respect Brad and Angelina for letting Shiloh be “Shiloh” and not what public opinion thinks she should be. People have no problem with little Suri wearing lipstick and red polish along with heels as long as she wears a dress. They have no problem with Zee in all her feminine glory as long as she does it in pinks and lavenders but because Shiloh prefers pants, jeans, gym shoes and less ‘girly’ attire ALL of a sudden they are trying to turn her into a boy or she’s gay. Right…because 3 boys just aren’t enough right??? (by the way haters: the word is tomboy). I respect the fact that Brad and Angie don’t give a toss what we think, they want their children to have a strong self confidence and strong self awareness. They embrace Shiloh as she is not as they would like her to be. It’s to bad society as whole can’t be as enlightened.

It’s a sad day for me. I lived where free health care was provided for every one, grew up where all “greedy” capitalists were deemed criminals by the state, where the government chanted religiously that the poor must be cared for. In other words, the same song Obama and Democrats here have been chanting was chanted, used to galvanized poor people and some elites/elites children/college students into start a revolution. There was one good thing that came with it: my country became independent, free from foreign invaders. But reality soon came crashing, and cruelty. Entrepreneurs, conscientious or not, got their properties confiscated, businesses transferred to the state; they were capitalist you see. The government forced them to give up rooms in their “big houses” (and you must not imagine these big houses possessing the size of middle class’ here and now in the US) to poor people. Have you any idea what government this was? A communist.
.
All was taken care of at first, education free. Each month each person got a set amount of rice, meat (barely), sugar, etc. At the start all seemed well for which decent human being would want others to be poor and without medical care and education. Such noble ideal, most agreed, even my grandpa, the self-made capitalist. Then the government ran out of money. And people suffered still.
.
But one thing communist did right: NO TAX (no business to tax as all was state owned, and people got paid barely and most significantly of all it was TAX that drove the poor into joining the communist’s revolt, drunk with promise of equality and being taken care of and no tax).
.
My Europeans colleagues (British and Germany) pays 50% tax beside VAT (sales tax). Swedish paid 70% and now down to 64% or somewhere there. WE will soon be their peers tax-wise.
.
So YAY…for you perhaps, but me, NOT. My people say: you avoid the melon skin only to meet the coconut’s. So true!

Boy it is late. and I almost poked my eyes out when I came back to this site.. All that TBH crap on the main page.. really the movie is out. Jared must be making some big bucks on this one..

I didn’t see it. That’s good. If it’s a 80 million movie, 200 million worldwide will be a very good box office and Sony will do a good profit.
But, they only will try to do a franchise from Salt if it’ll do 300 million worldwide (like I said before).

Sorry to hear that Voe…..but I think that here in America, it’s an idea who’s time has come. Policeman, mailmen, etc. are protected in our country, but some people say it would be ‘socializing’ medicine if we covered ALL of our citizens medically…..I think that’s a cop-out. It’s like you are in a third world country if you are poor and without coverage in America….THAT’S NOT RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE MOST ‘POWERFUL and WEALTHIEST’ country in the world…..it’s just not right….

I don’t want to offend anyone who is a Depp fan, but, he’s just not looking so good to me in the photos I’ve seen of him so far. Maybe it’s the camera angles or the camera lenses or camera something.
The weird characters he usually portray in other movies always disguises him so, I guess we haven’t seen him looking normal in a while but…now that we do, well, now that I do see him as a normal looking person, well, it’s not an impressive look. He also looks like he’s gained weight, too.
Hopefully, he’ll look better on screen.

postwatcher @ 03/21/2010 at 11:53 pm

You have all forgotten what a LUNATIC Angelina acted like a few years ago. Remember the blood on the chain thing?

Angelina is a wack job.

Most boys don’t dress as boyish as Shiloh.

Marcheline would never have approved.

aj, aj, –

stick with your screen name.

why are you changing your name to postwatch?

I am not usually in on the pregnant or not debate but, Angelina looks different in these photos. And Brad seems more protective than usual helping her in and out of the boats and such. Her lips look fuller, in the profile looks like when she carries low, and the eyes are deeper as when she is pregnant. I know, sounds silly but, I think she might be. You know she looks perfectly normal and then she shows up and there is a belly. I never figured out how she does it. We’ll see, huh?

TRUTH HURTS. @ 03/22/2010 at 12:01 am

Time to tell the truth. The bounty hunter will have a sharp decline next weekend. Because word of mouth is more powerful than Rachel’s spin machine. This movie will not make its budget back domestically and we all know she is not a international movie star like the beautiful and talented Angelina Jolie who will open Salt with more than 50 million in July. Internationally Rachel is the girl from Friends who got dumped by Brad Pitt. The End.

queenbee,

It’s easy to imagine that all can be taken care off. Unfortunately when people have no incentive to work hard (as tax eats most of their paycheck and social programs pay almost as much when not working), people will not work. This happened in the Eastern block, now Greece (you are aware she’s going bankrupt, aren’t you). The rest of Europe will soon get there and likewise Australia (a few people I know have been collecting unemployment for almost two decades and got money for down payment on a house too; ain’t that grand?). And we will get there. We are on our way too and will move faster with Obama’s agenda. Without jobs who will be able to pay mandatory health insurance for self, let alone others?
.
Well, you are very young and idealistic; like all young (myself was one) you need to experience the pain to really know it, else it only happens to others and you are invincible.
.
The grass is always greener on the other side, hence the left go right while right jump over to the left. The Chineses are wise: there’s always yin and yang (hot/cold, rich/poor, etc). I won’t be here in 50 years, not even in 20 years, maybe even less. I’ll wait to hear your take on it upstairs.

I don’t care how much TBH makes at the BO or on dvd , I am only glad people are finally calling X out on her lousy acting. Anyone with a brain will think twice before giving her work next time.

Great to see the J-P’s looking happy & healthy.Shi looks just fine..so STFU about her haters/trolls!!!

So,Bounty Hunter took 20mil…well I think alot of that would go towards the ridiculous amount of marketing.Here in Australia we had constant TV ads(during popular shows so$$)full page color mag ads,bus ads and even runnning competition to get Aussies to see that piece if shite.But,as in the US the reviews from our critics have been brutal,so I’ll be very interested to see how much it makes in Oz.
In our biggest paper(Herald-Sun) the reviewer used these words to describe TBH—Woeful,Boring,no energy,no creativity,absence of jokes and decent lines,a motionless movie and NO chemistry at all. And lastly–contender for worst film of the year(and it’s only March)so that’s a big call.

Angelina looks really extra beautiful at the moment,she must be really happy and #223—People CHANGE!! Do you still do the same things as you did 5-10yrs ago?? I know I don’t and I def changed after having kids,so why not Angie–it’s pretty obvious to those with an open mind that she has changed ALOT!!!!!!!!!!

@voe: Hi..You are correct.Here in Australia if you can’t work you get benefits of all sorts,eg:if you are hurt you are paid disability–also first-home buyers get $14,000 towards their home loan and of course we can go to any hospital and get treated FREE. There are private hospitals and medical insurance,but that just means you choose your hospital or doctor.But when I went in for emergency surgery,I had a first class doc and it didn’t cost a cent.
We have our probs,but overall Australia is a great place to live

kind of odd... @ 03/22/2010 at 12:32 am

I highly doubt they were visiting Johnny Depp today. He arrived in Japan over a few hours ago and I’m pretty sure that was longer than a six hour flight.

Aussie Girl,
.
I have family there so I know how they feel about living in Australia: love it. One sibling is a doctor, and my relative did stay on assistance long. A year after arrival from refugee camp she started working, got her chemist degree but decided to be entrepreneur instead. So they pay tax and don’t mind. Your population is much less than US’, like the European countries, so it easier to care for the poor. But I think you will need more immigrants soon to fill the tax bucket for all the programs.
.
US will soon too then the needy population will increase, more programs will be needed, and so goes the circle, and it’d take months to debate on. I’ll quit talking about this now. Thanks.

@kind of odd…: This has already been discussed and disposed of. There is an 8 hour time difference and these pics were not taken 5 mins ago.So,of course they could of visited..Why TF not??They have kids of similar age and are in the same profession—So Grow UP

@Passing Through @ 03/21/2010 at 6:07 pm

Okay…the pix of Shiloh are cracking me up. It’s official for me – Shiloh is definitely emulating Maddox while channeling a little Brad with her style elements. How hilarious. I remember in the twins Peeps pix there was one of Shiloh sitting on Madd’s lap clowning around with him when the pic was snapped.

Do you have a link for it? I would really love to see that picture.

AMEN AMEN AMEN TO THAT. I’m a first generation immigrant and I think Australia is one of the best countries in the world to live – and I’ve lived in a few. It’s true there some people rip off the system, don’t work and get paid unemployment benefits or something else. But by and large, in my experience, most Australians work and work quite hard.
.
the ones I’ve met who don’t work?? They tend to be tablie believing, whiny, Dedn fans. True dat!!
.
YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!
.
On a more serious note, I’m glad that America has passed its health care bill. I think that education together with healthcare are 2 items which the state or community can provide which makes all the difference for an individual having a future and not having one. the other items are the love of your family, sufficient political and social stability (ie no civil wars etc) so you don’t get killed and can get to school etc and sufficient good quality food and water so that your brain and body aren’t stunted by malnourishment – which goes back to health.
.
Truly, You can live in a house with clay floors and a leaky roof. You can live on 2 changes of garments and no shoes. But unless you have health and education, you just can’t break the poverty cycle if you are uneducated or if your health is poor due to lack of medical care – even if the political environment were sufficiently stable.
.
One more point I wish to make about Obama’s healthcare act. As I understand it, there was hardly any tort reform in Obama’s reforms. I believe there should be tort reform. Perhaps Obama couldn’t do it because tort reform comes under the power of the states in the US, I don’t know.
.
BUT if you don’t want doctors to overtest and thus have a reason to overcharge, then you better have tort reform. If you don’t want your doctors to raise fees to cover their Professional Liability Insurance, then you better have tort reform.
.
I can assure Americans that Australian doctors, UK doctors, HK Doctors, Taiwanese doctors, Japanese doctors, Singaporean doctors, German doctors, etc etc are NOT more careless just because the doctors in these countries are NOT subject to massive law suits. Massive law suits do not make better doctors. It just results in overtesting and higher prices and more leeway for exploitative doctors to over charge.
.

@ kind of odd…
The flight duration would be 16-18 hours, not 6…I’ve traveled from Germany to Japan and it is NOT fun lol. That being said, Angie, Brad, and the kids could have very well visited Johnny shortly before he left.

Mmh I am a bit jelous on how Brad protect her leading lady in one of the photos and for sure Shiloh rocks!!!

@Maria:

@lylian:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Right — tort reform is a state issue as it impacts health care in the U.S. and many states have enacted tort reform and received ZERO relief from insurance carriers. Texas has the most draconian tort restrictions and also the city with the highest health care costs in the nation.

I am not surprised that Angelina and Brad went to see Johnny Depp as I recall a photo of the JP family using his boat, it had Vanessa written on it.

II wonder what the reasons are. You’d think competition would drive the premiums down as the risk of massive payments are reduced. But perhaps the tort reform did not address the key issues but only the marginal issues.

Poor Jennifer Aniston can’t even beat the “Wimpy Kid” – and certainly not “Alice.”

Aniston’s “Bounty Hunter” took third place at the box office over the weekend, earning $21 million for a heavily advertised flick that co-starred hunky Gerard Butler as her ex-husband.

Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland remained number one for the third weekend, earning $34.5 million – but it was the movie that came in second that put Aniston to shame.

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” which cost $15 million to make, earned $21.8 million and had no big names. Aniston’s movie, which follows a bounty hunter chasing his reporter ex-wife, cost more than $40 million.

That “Alice” would stay No. 1 was less of a surprise than the draw of “Wimpy Kid,” which tells the tale of a sixth grader maneuvering through the social challenges of middle school, including the “cheese touch” – a version of the old “cooties” game.

“I think cheese touch equals magic touch at the box office,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution at 20th Century Fox.

While not exactly box-office poison, Aniston has had a string of hit-and-miss openings in recent years – more miss than hit.

Even in her biggest box office showing, “Marley and Me”, which opened Christmas Day, 2008, Aniston and co-star Owen Wilson were outshone by dog star power.

Her leading men may also help boost her box office successes.

“The Break Up,” which came right after her real-life break up with Brad Pitt – and her off-screen romance with co-star Vince Vaughn – hit the top of the charts in 2006 as fans flocked to see them together.

Next Valentine’s Day in 2011, she’ll have another pairing with a leading man who has proven he’s box office gold – Adam Sandler – in “The Pretend Wife.”

Aniston’s next big opening is due in August. Called “The Switch,” film is about a woman who undergoes artificial insemination only to learn years later that a male pal switched his sperm with that of her anonymous donor, reports IMDB.

^^^^^^ That daily news article was right on-the wimpy kid only cost 15 million and still kicked aniston as s-what an embarassment for her-i think i’m going to email this article to the other blogs.poor aniston

How many pictures are we going to see of the Jolie-Pitts getting loaded on and off boats? Every day we get a new picture of them being helped onto a boat. Who cares???

BUT having the government tell these people who have NO health insurance and cannot afford any surgery what sort of surgery they can have sure beats teh HELL out of NOT HAVING ANY surgery at all when you need it.
.
STOP fear mongering.
.
In countries such as Australia, UK and Europe, we have BETTER health care OUTCOMES for the % of National GDP we spend on our healthcare than the whole of the US. Just a fact. Check it out if you aren’t so busy being stupid about the JPs.
.
AMERICAN uninsured die of preventable illnesses because they can’t afford the check up and they can’t afford the premiums or the health care costs. In fact a couple of years ago, PEOPLE magazine featured a story of this self employed man who had INSUFFICIENT healthcare insurance and had to resort to GOING to INDIA for his heart bypass – and there was NO choices for him. NONE. His American doctors said he was going to die because all 4 arteries were BLOCKED. But he could not operate in America because he was only about 50 years of age and had insufficient medical insurance being self employed.
.
I assure you, in the circumstances described by People mag about that chap, in Australia, UK, Europe, Canada, Singapore, NZ, he would have got the bypass without having to travel to India on his own and hope to god that he’ll survive the operation far from his family and friends.
.

Why are some posters so concerned if they did or did not visit Depp. WGAF,, really THEY WENT SOME PLACE WITH THE KIDS. THERE.

Sometimes it is just beyond dumb that people get pissy with Brad/Angie because of a story written on a blog. As if they came out and screamed HEY we are going to visit Johnny at his home.

Man just so dumb.

I hope Brad goes to the KickAss premier.. I want to see him there. If Angie is not filming today he may go.

Love not having to read the trollop’s comments. Poor dumpees!

They are so sweet…Love them!!!!

Interesting how they are visiting Johnny Depp, who is currently promoting his film in Tokyo :)

Anonymous @ 03/22/2010 at 7:05 am

Great to see this family together visitng Johnny Depp in Venice. Brad was meant to be a father. He loves all his children and their mother a lot. He certainly doesn´t miss his life before Angie and the children at all. Angie is really beautiful in these pics. She has this natural beauty and her daughters (Shiloh & Vivienne) seem to have inherited that. Zahara is also a very beautiful little girl. This family is so down-to-earth. Great to see them enjoying their time in Venice.

‘The blood on the chain thing’.
I laugh everytime I see this referenced. I even butted in on a conversation I overheard about this.

It was a dried flower pressed with a smidgeon of blood worn in a locket. Many people choose to wear great big globs of metal around their neck because other people have decided its value. Because the other people decided this value everyone else follows. Some people aren’t followers and they make up their own rules. Some people view blood as the lifeforce of the one they love as being more precious to them than gold. It was imaginative and romantic in a highly uniquely individual way. However, if you glean all your information from tabloids are devoid of imagination lack individuality and your concept of romance is buying or being given a box of chocolates then of course you will see it as ‘a wack job’ as you so put it.

We only read comments marked in red, they make much more sense and seem to come from people who are not obsessed.

As a parent who has had to pay out of pocket for medications, or procedures that were refused by my insurance, I do not mind paying the extra taxes to ensure that the ridiculously rising health care costs are controlled in this country.

Other countries with universal health care, properly managed meet the objectives stated in this article, They have lower crime rates, lower child neglect, lower health costs for medical conditions that end up resulting in death because they were never properly tested for or treated, Better mental health care plans.

Well you get the picture.

This country is supposed to be based on the needs of the people, by the people and for the people…….not just the corporatioans, insurance companies and doctors.

Access to health care can only create a more productive society.

JMHO

So Hidden posts for me and I know I will get lots of people reading this just because it is hidden.

I believe everyone should have good education and healthcare. The question is how to pay for it.

Lylian, remember during the election period, you made a big deal about deficit, and even posted your calculation. Are we gonna see a post from you about how this healthcare reform bill will affect our budget?

By the way, I know many Canadians cross the border to have the surgeries done in the USA because the wait is too long.

You know…Bountiless opened to $8mil in 8 foreign markets. However – most of that came from only 2 or about 4 foreign markets where X’s movies play well – Russia and the UK. When she finally got a distributor for misManagement one of the first markets they secured was Russia…followed by a few of the former Soviet bloc countries – Slovenia & Khazakstan. Khazakstan? All I could think about was Borat and Rachel having babies. She couldn’t secure a distributor for the U.S. market…but Russia and Khazakstan wanted her movie? Amazing.
.
If you go over to BOM and look at the foreign numbers for X’s solo duds the only other countries they’ve played well in are Germany (cuz they’re drunk on beer) and sometimes Australia (cuz they’re drunk on beer, too.). Occasionally Italy, Spain or France MAY have a good showing, but otherwise there’s just not a whole lot of love for Rachel Green or her movies around the old blue planet.

dianad1968 @ 03/22/2010 at 11:40 am

All I have to say is Thank God HEALTH CARE REFORM has finally been passed in this country. It’s not the best, YET, but it’s a step in the right direction. I have a friend who lost her job in 2002, just after 9/11. It was quite well paid, and although the cost of her insurance kept going up, she could afford to keep it. She now has a job that pays her at least $15,000 less that what she was previously making, she hasn’t had an increase in salary in over 3 years, and cannot afford the medical insurance offered on her job, because it is ridiculously expensive. And did I mention she has chronic asthma. She said the majority of employees on her job also do not have insurance.

This is happening all over this country, and it disproportionally affects minorities and the poorest among us. When I saw some of the anti health care demonstrations, and the anger displayed, I know this is not the America the Founding Fathers had in mind. Everyone is entitled to adequate healthcare. It’s the decent thing to do.

Fake hair.. and fake family… and who cares about them? They did not care care about you people

@dianad1968: So well put. So many of uninsured are hard working people. I have to think most of those demonstrators against health care are themselves insured and have never had a medical crisis in their lives. I have heard so many stories like you tell about your friend, I wish her well.

Young females, most of all, should support this health care bill or young men trying to go to college on part time jobs with parents with no coverage. Trust me, the swine flu or simple female problems, lump on the breast at an young age, broken ankle…..there are a lot of kids, 19-26 with no health care insurance. Not to mention, the age 45+ workers laid off from jobs or had to accept another job without benefits. I hope people filled out their 2010 Census correctly and honestly without pride. Congress and the MEDIA may be in for a shock but it is up to the people to be honest.

ROTFLMAO how NOW all of these people are saying what I’VE been saying for over 5 YEARS. All those pity parties and all that whining has led to this. People want X to STFU and do some decent work ON HER OWN or bow out gracefully and admit she just doesn’t have what it takes to be THE STAR of a movie. When you can’t even outshine 22 REAL dogs? That’s when you should know your shite stinks and you need to admit you’ve failed. After all, this IS the ho who after seeing herself on the big screen while previewing Picture Perfct declared that her face was NOT meant to be magnified to 30+feet on the big screen. She knows she lacks screen presence, but she just keeps trying to outdo Brad and Angie. Idiot that she is.

@STORK: my thoughts too!! wouldn’t it be funny if while all those breakup rumors were swirling they were at home making a new baby I’d love it..just goes to prove how little the tabs actually get right

Your post reminded me of when I was a kid and my parents didn’t have health insurance. When my father got a job that did provide insurance the premiums for the children weren’t that bad, but he was unable to afford the premium on my mother so she never had health insurance her entire life until she retired and Medicare kicked in. Even so, it’s spotty at best and until recently it didn’t have any prescription coverage. My mother’s 78 now and has all these ailments that had she had health insurance or could afford to see doctors they would be as severe now. Especially things with her arthritis, diabetes and high blood pressure. People who have insurance or can afford insurance have no idea of what people who don’t have it and can’t afford have to put up physically simply because they’re poor. And even with Medicare there are some things my mother still can’t get done. Like a few years ago she had a gallstone attack. Because she passed the stone Medicare wouldn’t pay for her to have her gallbladder removed. So she still has a gallbladder with stones in it. If she starts passing a stone again THEN they’ll pay to remove the gallbladder – otherwise she’s SOL. This has been going on for over 6 years now. Now she’s 78 and in much worse health than 6 years ago which makes surgery that much riskier. BUT…some folks say we don’t need healthcare reform.

sham wow sucks @ 03/22/2010 at 2:30 pm

Why are there black marks on Shiloh’s arm?? Is Angelina trying to tattoo her already, lol.

@Kim: Great post!
Positivity is a great word for today. I will carry it with me, and use it often.

No Brad burnt her with his blunt

@Passing Through: So, Passing through, I missed something, what is Brad’s connection to Kickass? I was in Austin to see parents over spring break and it won annual SBSW( South by Southwest )award. It was all the buzz in town, with the young folk.

Kick ass was produced by Plan B, Brad’s production co.

Hello to all JP Fans.
.
LOVE this couple! I love how Brad and Angelina always make time for their children and time for each other even though they are working.
.
Angelina is absolutely Stunning (with a capital “S”) in these pictures. Brad must be so proud of her. No mother of 6 ever looked this good and all that Angie has accomplished at such a young age, she is truly AMAZING! And it is obvious Brad thinks so and Brad’s opinion is the ONLY one that counts. He looks so happy to be at her side. And I agree completely with the previous poster who said Shiloh always looks so happy. It is clear this is a very happy, loving family.
.
Credit to the JJB poster for posting the following report -
.
“…..A few nights ago, they had dinner at “La Cantina”, Strada Nuova. The owners, Zorzetto Francesco and Giovanni Napolitano, told us that during the dinner, the most beautiful couple in the world were kissing the whole time. Brad also proudly showed pictures of his children to the waiters,……”
.
Brad obviously is a very proud and happy family man, and loves his wife and family very much.
.
Foxy, I don’t know if Angelina is pregnant as yet, but we all know Brad says he wants another one, this time born in England, so I am certain there is another bambino to come in the very near future, and as much as Angelina loves Brad, I think she will grant him whatever he wants, when he wants it. :)
.
Blessings always to Brad and Angelina and their beautiful family.
Blessings also to all the wonderful Jolie-Pitt fans.

Re: 240 lylian @ 03/22/2010 at 1:12 am
Hi lylian,
Your post hit’s a good point however, it is much more complicated than tort reform although I agree it is necessary. Article for you http://washingtonindependent.com/55535/tort-reform-unlikely-to-cut-health-care-costs.

The factors causing high medical costs are varied:
Rate of utilization overwhelms the system, inconsistent ongoing care increases mismanagement of patient’s medical problems, the cost of seeing patients for unnecessary visits and/or procedures not associated with litigation fears, cost shifting and demands of the patient are all part of the problem. The system needs checks and balances to override fraud and over-use by patients and the self interest of the docs and their ties to labs and in some cases drug companies. Except in California oftentimes a group of docs own the very labs they refer to.
Unnecessary patient overload can be monitored by a triage system by telephone…not perfect but a start. More qualified and trained ancillary staff could triage effectively such that RN’s as in Hospice Care do most of the care while the Docs specialize in their diagnostician and treatment skills and seeing the most dire cases.

Re: # 202 queen bee @ 03/21/2010 at 10:54 pm
“…..SICK BABIES NOT TURNED AWAY FROM HOSPITALS!!! “
Queen bee,
The US has a history of providing care for those in need. It’s the uneducated patient who is unaware of alternatives.
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) an U.S. Act of Congress passed in 1986 requires all emergency wards who receive Medicare funds to abide by this law. It requires hospitals and ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency healthcare treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. The caveat to this mandatory Federal law is that there are no reimbursement provisions to provide these services so the emergency ward/hospitals are left to shift costs to other patients, either insured or private pay. It’s a matter of fact that several hospitals in the extremely low income areas of Los Angeles had to close down due to over utilization due to EMTALA, subsequently leaving communities without emergency facilities to care for its residents who now have to travel miles to access care. The cost shifting result has left it’s damage. Over 50% of visits to an emergency ward are not funded. Since EMTALA’s inception, more than 560 hospitals and 1200 emergency departments closed across the US (USA Today, Time Magazine, LA Times). In California alone between 1993 and 2003, 60 hospitals closed because of over 50% of unpaid services, and another 24 California hospitals closed in 2004. The Los Angeles County Trauma Care Network has weakened with many providers leaving due to lack of financial reimbursement from EMTALA policies, subsequently emergency docs have abandoned emergency and trauma centers in high risk communities which is synonymous with violent crime, low income. (“EMTALA and the Ethical Delivery of Hospital Emergency Services Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America“, Volume 24, Issue 3, Pages 557-577 R.BITTERMAN)
Furthermore, to complicate health care system reform, it’s known that patients who don’t receive preventive ongoing care for chronic conditions or see the same provider consistently receive erratic episodic care, often delivered at emergency centers at roughly three times the cost. Moreover
care for chronic conditions impacts on continuity of care and consequently the costs goes up when the patient finally ends up for critical treatment. It’s obvious patients who do not understand the nature of medical care often resort to seeking out multiple doctors and specialities which increases duplicative lab work, X-rays, and other tests with additional costs to the health care of that particular individual and the system. A patient doesn‘t like what a doc tells them, they seek out another who will tell them what they want to hear…patient denial is a powerful factor in rising health care cost. If they don‘t believe the doc, they are less likely to follow up on recommended care and treatment, only to have critical care when it is absolutely needed which in turn raises the overall cost of health care for what would have perhaps been relatively less costly at the initial diagnosis. (http://www.assembly.ca.gov/acs/committee/c10/hearings/background%20paper%20emergency%)
To further exasperate the premise of low cost medical coverage which is followed by low reimbursement to facilities and providers, the natural consequence is a restricted list of providers who are willing to treat patients on insurance plans that are at the low end of the payment schedule aka Medicaid, Medicare, per capital plans and probably any form of designated low cost insurance. It’s economics… if a subscriber pays little into a premium, co pays and deductibles, the private insurance or government sponsored plan cannot reimburse at the usual and customary rates for those who have higher premium plans, providers will drop out as they have done in the past leaving those on low premium, low cost insurance plans with little choices, some with no choices within a reasonable geographic area other than a County facility.
Medical insurance does not necessarily equivocate to good medical care or a breathe of options.

Re: 268 ebmo @ 03/22/2010 at 7:43 am
Greetings ebmo,
“Other countries with universal health care, properly managed meet the objectives stated in this article”
and those are the magic words…”properly managed”…difficult since patients have to educate and be advocates for themselves. Too many patients expect the provider to “take care of them” and to “tell them what to do” which leads to potential fraud on the providers part and to lackadaisical follow through by the patient. Any health care system is dependent on checks and balances, provider and patient oversight, matching reimbursement, and strict adherence to what is known to work…however patients commit as much fraud as the system allows. While working at a low income HMO I’ve seen Medicaid patients call for ambulances paid for by Medicaid for a common cold symptom. The idea of an excise tax is a good one but it should also be implemented to everyone who has insurance including the indigent. In California MediCal (Medicaid elsewhere) has a $1.00 to $5.00 out of pocket co-pay in order to be seen for simple office visits. As your article stated “Health economists consider the excise tax a very strong cost-control measure, because if workers have to pay more of the cost themselves, they and their doctors are apt to think more carefully about whether a test or procedure is really needed.”
For any system to work for such a large body of diversified populations, there has to be cooperation, education and a willingness to respect the system…is this possible for such a large nation? IMO there is no easy answer to this complicated issue because it is dependent on so many human factors for which there is always abuse and error.

#297

PT earlier this year, one of the 500 Fortune companies, (can’t remember which one) decided to eliminate the employees co-payments, because they observed that people were putting off going to the doctors untill their symptons were very severe, at which time, the care was more costly to the insurance and the company. I t will be great if other companies followed suit.

BTW, the insurance lobby is one of the most powerful in Washington.

All I have to say is Thank God HEALTH CARE REFORM has finally been passed in this country. It’s not the best, YET, but it’s a step in the right direction. I have a friend who lost her job in 2002, just after 9/11. It was quite well paid, and although the cost of her insurance kept going up, she could afford to keep it. She now has a job that pays her at least $15,000 less that what she was previously making, she hasn’t had an increase in salary in over 3 years, and cannot afford the medical insurance offered on her job, because it is ridiculously expensive. And did I mention she has chronic asthma. She said the majority of employees on her job also do not have insurance.

This is happening all over this country, and it disproportionally affects minorities and the poorest among us. When I saw some of the anti health care demonstrations, and the anger displayed, I know this is not the America the Founding Fathers had in mind. Everyone is entitled to adequate healthcare. It’s the decent thing to do.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Ditto! We will have some kinks to work out,
it is a step in the right direction.

I remember when I paid for my health insurance and that of my kids …….and it was the “cadillac” of health insurance and because of allergies to certain meds I had to pay 400.00 per month to fill 1 prescription for a medication she needed.

omg this site sucks!!!!! the weirdos voting thumbs down allooooooot on good comments/opinions!!!!!

Hi to Voe,
I respect your comments, enjoyed your thoughts and input and can understand the direction you are going. Although your post sadden me, I thank you for sharing your observations as depicted in your country, it was most informative. Idealism and good intentions are not always practical…balance is the key. Corruption and self interest pervade many governments including factions within the US through the guise of good intentions and equality. However here’s to you to keep up the faith and hope for the better one day at a time.

Angelina is beautiful in a way(sometimes) but she stole Jennifer’s man!!!shes bloody annoying!!! she put a chain on him by having 6 kids with him!!! Brad must still have feeling for jen,I mean they sercretly met up at a hotel a few months ago.

You forgot master manipulator. She’s also everthing I called her.

Do think people change that radically from who they are? She just hides the fact that she’s a whack job better than she use to.

She’s a crappy actress to boot. They give Oscars out to people who don’t deserve them all the time. Just because you sell tickets doesn’t mean your good. The spice girls sold out a lot of arenas and a whack of CDs..do you think they’re as good as the Beatles? I mean look a the sales, they must have been brilliant! LOL. All you Angelina nutbars are the same. Lets see how many tickes Angie girl sells when she’s 45 . It’s the beauty that sells the tickes now not talent. Before you call me a jen hag, while I think Jen’s not bad looking she can”t act either, and can’t pick a half decent role to save her life, she simply needs better management. If Jen does something stupid I’d call her out as well. As in the shitfest her latest movie is. No, I can see right thru Angelina’s facade, too bad you and the rest of the loons on this site can’t.

We need health care reform, but I am against being forced to buy insurance, think fining me for choosing to forgo insurance because I am in great health (I haven’t been to the doctor’s office for years), do not want to pay for others as I have to pay for my own family, and do not want the government to keep borrowing money, raising tax or printing money (all of which adversely affect the economy). I don’t like to be forced to do anything. Coerced compassion will turn into burning resentment that bring about upheaval for the country. I had lived through all that and do not wish it upon any one or my issues.
.
Social programs allow irresponsible people to neglect their elders, children, citing tax paying as excuse. Hundred of thousands people wanting to come here for one purpose: to get social benefit; they did not and do not want to come to build a country. This abhors me, the American citizen.

.
@ lylian,
.
While I respect your knowledge and opinions, unless you have lived here for decades thus long enough, imo, to understand all the ills and good of the system in the US, please refrain from telling Americans what to do and what not to do or say for that matter.
.
Of course you think Australia is great. Compare to your old country, even if it were Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan or Malaysia or any of the Southeast Asian country where large number of Chinese reside, or actually all but the West, Australia is great for first generation immigrant. Else you wouldn’t have stayed. My relatives think so too. The point is this: just you and I are different, so are countries. No two are alike thus can have issues resolved in the same way.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Hey there!

I agree with you regarding the possibility of abuse and error, however that happens right now all the time, and we pay through the nose for it as well as lose our right to choose.

As I said there will be kinks to be worked out however the current system is abysmal. The costs are ludicrious and insurance companies are famous for “cherrry picking” i.e. “insuraing only those if good health and encouraging doctors not to perform tests.”

Ex:
I have abnormal cells in my hooter. Every six months I have to have a mamogram, then, because the tissue is so dense, I have to have a gamma specific imaging, As that does not give any info either, I then have to have and ultrasound which ALWAYS indicates that I need 3 invasive biopsies.

I then get referred to an oncologist. Frankly, I told them to “lop it off” but my insurance will not allow that until procedure unless the cells show difinitive cancer.

The oncologist told me flat out that ONE MRI would be diagnosticly difinitive. Then I have control over my body.

However, the insurance co will pay for 6 (yes 6) worthless procedures every 6 months, as well as, including the surgeon’s fee and oncologist consults EVERY SIX MONTHS and medication rather than 1 lousy MRI a year because that is their policy and the thing is……they KNOW the other tests are not diagnostically significant until the biopsies are completed.

I find it hard to believe that 12 procedures, a year, surgeon’s fees, oncologist’s fees and prescriptions cost less than one lousy MRI a year.

Frankly as my sister-in-law lost her breast at the age of 35, and worried to death about the cancer metastisizing, ……I would just as soon not wait around for this to turn into cancer and to matastisize to my lymph nodes while I wait for the results of tests that are USELESS. Not to mention the time it takes and the worries of chemotherapy, radiation or simply dying.

This is approved this way by my insurance because they are “trying to keep costs down” by forcing a patient to go through a series of inexpensive tests before they “okay” the test I need, even though they know it will lead to 12 tests a year, surgeon fees and oncologist fees as well as lab fees.

Will health care reform fix this? Maybe, Maybe not, however, again “managed properly” however as we improve the system it has the possibility of becoming more efficient, and I can get other insurance if necessary other procedures, rather than undergoing these procedures every six months, or worrying about the abnormal cells spreading, or worrying about leaving my 11 year old with no mom.

That is why I feel so strongly about this. Free choice. The AMA as well as insurance companies, have been fighting this for years because they will not me able to charge such ridiculously high fees and the citizen will be forced to stay with them. Best unions in the country.

One person does have the responsibility to advocate for themselves or their loved ones, however without choice how are we supposed to do that? Without being able to afford skyrocketing costs how can we do that? Quite simply…..health care reform gives us access and choice!

THANK YOU for the Howard Stern link – that was awesome. Hilarious, one of my favorites- so true.

ENOUGH ALREADY! Skull Cap, Usual black/gray/white, is this KNOX or SHiloh? Newspapers have began to question who is who. Shi is bigger, but thats the only difference. Angie, give this i want her to be a boy stuff up already, it’s getting crazy! She WOULD be cute, but we cant see it. but boy, she sure looks like a boy!

Of cause only the nuts on here turn a blind eye to this. and ONLY the nuts.

@voe: This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, I live in Norway and I pay 26% tax some pay more some pay less. We are all part of a government run health system and we all have to pay up to 250 dollars for medical expenses after that its covered by the government. free education as well and it is no where near being a communist country. Lots of millionairs, middle class and working class people here. Wen I lived in New York (16 years) I paid closer to 35% tax. so please stop talking bull. And By the way health care is much better over here as well.

Boy or Girl @ 03/22/2010 at 5:40 pm

how long will angie continue to dress this girl as a boy? and forget the shiloh is doing this, like hell she is. she isn’t old enough to go to a damn store alone. she looks so much like a boy, it’s making many nuts, me included. i guess angie is enjoying this! unless this is a boy,and we were told different. i can’t imagine any parent letting this go on this long. i can see some tomboy stuff but this is 24/7 and going on 4 yrs. normal? yeah, NO!

black/gray and white only @ 03/22/2010 at 5:43 pm

I bought the new In touch mag. and it said under the twins picture “dressed in parents standard black , gray and white colors’. When mag’s are noticing this woman dresses her kids in nothing but those 3 colors, it’s time to wonder. AJ sure must have issues.
dont even get me started on shiloh. nothing girlie about her anymore. this looks like a boy, can’t be shi. if it is, Yikes.
i have to agree with poster who said there is something wrong, no kidding!!! it’s time to dress this girl as a girl, Brad? you have ANY say?

OMFG Hilarious!

@LittlemissJess:
.
What kind of fan are you of Jennifer Aniston?
.
First of all Jennifer NEVER said her man was “Stolen,” in fact, she said there was NO CHEATING by Brad and Angelina, and she (jen) and Brad had an “amicable” divorce.
.
And second, Jennifer denied the lying tabloid story that she had met up with Brad secretly in any hotel.
.
Quote – “………But a rep for Aniston, 40, tells Usmagazine.com the rendezvous “never happened.” – Look up the link yourself!
.
And third, Brad CHOSE to have 6 children with Angelina and ONLY Angelina. He adopted three of the children and gave them HIS name of PITT connected with Angelina’s which makes them JOLIE-PITTs and he CHOSE to impregnate Angelina with 3 more children from his own precious seed which he shares ONLY with Angelina and she with him ONLY.
.
Angelina put NO CHAIN on Brad. Brad said the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith is very significant and special to him because….”I fell in love man…..6 kids!”
.
When Angelina gave birth to Brad’s twins he was right there in the hospital with her helping out in the delivery room, the doctor said he was very emotional and cried……and after the birth Brad told ALL the world …”I am the happiest Father ever!”.

So stop your lies about any “chain” around Brad. Brad is with the most beautiful woman in the world and she consented to bear HIS children at HIS request and he is their father and he is as he said himself “Where HE wants to be!”
.
And Brad has said he wants more children with Angelina. So get used to Brad and Angelina being together.

.
If you claim to be a fan of anyone get your facts straight so you can, at the least, sound like you know what you are talking about.

You Jen hags need to find a life!

Yes, your IDOL Jen has brought you nothing but disappointment. Her bomb coms are a complete and total embarrassment to all of you. She has been called out on her fauxmances by all the legitimate media, Butler has fled her presence, never again to be seen with her unless he is paid to be, she sill has NO man in her life, which she says she is perfectly happy with, but you trolls just cannot be happy for her can you?

Please take your whiny asses over to your hen’s thread and support her over there and leave the JPs to the JP fans.

Thank you Jared for the thumbs down. You just need to cut it down to 3 negative posts and their idiotic comments are shut out.

Angelina should adopt another boy.
Maybe he’ll want to wear dresses.

Cute pics, although it would kind of suck if you had to put tents over everything just to keep photographers from photographing your every move.

Dear Me,

#350,

What is the population in Norway? What is US’? And would you please point out exactly what I did say about your country system and why is it most ridiculous?
.
Even if it was ridiculous, what’s ridiculous to you is perfectly normal to some. As long as you expect and demand, by telling people that their opinions/percipient experiences are ridiculous, others to completely agree or stay in line with your idea, opinion, etc, you are being ridiculous.
.
cont below

@Me cont: You ought to read Voltaire’s Candide. Everyone has a story and when it is a sob story, s/he thinks it the compassion-worthiest one. Hence news magazines/outlets pick a story and sensationalize it, and voila, foreigners like lylian thinks US’ health care must be the pit. Well, I’ve been living here full time 30 years and it isn’t the pit. If one does not have insurance or money to pay for health care, one can go to medical center and get treated.

That’s one disturbing photo of Shiloh. She’s a beautiful girl, but the way she is dressed in shorts, sneakers, and t-shirt, she turned into a boy. It’s remarkable.

So it has been said about Jennay.

I can’t wait to watch The Tourist.

Thanks JJ for the lovely photos.

I LOVE THE JOLIE PITTS

The tourist looks like an excellent movie, can’t wait to see it.

She really is another Chasity Bono in the making.

Shiloh that is.

@queen bee: It’s heart breaking to see people living like this, I’m amazed that the so called bad boy, Russell Brand is actually becoming a humanitarian. Brad & Angie has been an inspiration to people around the globe, that’s why we adore them in Asia, thanks for the video.

you based that on what? that you are a psychic. you can see shi’s future or you bases on the boy clothes she wears. shi is only 3. you are fcuking idiot.

Marilyn Macey @ 03/23/2010 at 1:01 pm

@Guest36: You are a whack job to call a little child such things! She is a little girl going through different phases in her life. I dressed as a boy till I was 8 years old, look at me now, a complete replica of a Barbie doll, furthermore it’s none of your biz to judge this innocent child- SHE WILL BE WHAT SHE WILL BE, DEFINETELY A BETTER HUMAN BEING THAN YOU ARE!.

# to Guest36. DOES THE NAME CHASTITY BONO RING A BELL. TO YOU ******. SONNY AND CHER USED TO DRESS THEIR LITTLE GIRL HER LIKE A BARBIE DOLL , VERY BEAUTIFUL GIRLY DRESSES. WHAT HAPPENED,? I AM VERY PROUD OF CHASTITY, SHE IS NOW CHAZ. SHE IS A MAN. I SURE HOPE THAT SOME OF HER HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS HAVE THE GUTS AND JUST COME OUT. BE BOLD, COME OUT. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

Shiloh is so cute and very girlie.She is also tall for a soon to be 4 years old.Guess she got that from her parents.Also the lips,Angie’s mini-me#1.To the haters,cry all you want,moan all you can,but Shiloh and her siblings will always be a Jolie-Pitt.Chaz Bono is a good person,don’t put her down.Who cares if she is a lesbian!!!

Hello JP fans, just checkin but not new news/pic. Nice to read all the positive things for JP family. SHI and Z will grow up so close to each other just the way the look,hold hands and talk to each other…ok now I did not hear them..what I’m saying is thier gesture. do you folks remember when the two of them came out from a dance class – video walking at the parking lot. This 2 girls are awesome smilling to each other and one point Shi trying to explain something to Z. Regards to JP fans.

brad & angie fan @ 03/23/2010 at 10:55 pm

Only a nasty person would say those sort of things about a little child, glad I am not related to you.

actually, Zahara is holding Shiloh’s wrist — like she is making sure she is safe!

Gee the twins are so, so cute. I think Knox looks like Brad and Viv looks like Angelina.

Well I don’t like your comments, you are a very shallow person putting a little girl of 3 down like that.

25 people to blame for the financial crisis. Note, Bush came in behind your two beloved Clinton and Greenspan.

# 3 is Alan Greenspan. As I’ve said to you before, he let the interest rate stay TOO low for TOO long.

# 13 is Bill Clinton

# 14 is George Bush

I guess this is a DECTATORSHIP board!!!
completely bias
no- one is ALLOWED TO HAVE EVEN SLIGHTLY NEGATIVE THOUGHTS OF ANGELINA,THE WAY SHE DRESSES HER GIRL LIKE A BOY,ETC.
ITS LIKE HITLER SAYIN
‘YOU CANT BE FRIENDS WITH THE JEWS.END OF.’

duuuuuude some of you people are low life scum with way too much time on your hands more than us normal peeps.

Im so sad that I have to keep clicking to read all the comments that are not even slightly bad, in fact I agree with most of the comments people have marked as bad.

Why are people talking about health care/financial crises on HERE??

If you were overseas and got very sick, so sick that you need immediate, and I mean IMMEDIATE treatment, you’d be happy and grateful when you get it, WHEREEVER you happen to be!

You don’t have to see them going on and off the water taxi. You know that it’s up to you, don’t you?

Who cares?
Apparently you do, because you look.

@ykw: Actually even in real life pics he’s disguised, what with all those layered looks. Johnny is not a guy to show off and is bold enough to cover up his good looks as possible as he could. Only actor that truly is averse to cash in on his good looks, so that people would concentrate on his work alone. A reason why he’s so respected . And in “The Tourist” it’s the beard( which covers his well defined cheekbones) that makes his face look fuller. Also the character is supposed to look brooding, right. The weight gain was for some previous movie ( he seems to have built his body for public enemies} but mostly due to his heavy clothing. It seems you’ve not watched many Depp movies ie his “normal” characters. You don’t even have to watch his younger days. Just watch public enemies to experience why most women consider him the sexiest guy alive. More than the looks,it’s the deep sex appeal of him, which is a cut above everyone including Pitt, that makes him unique and timeless.

Apparently Brad and Jesse James both like their women tattooed. Although Jesse’s women have killer bodies.

Cute. :)

I just wanted to say that I don’t think I’d be able to work with Johnny Depp alll day then go home to Brad Pitt and that beard. Johnny Depp is just toooooo sexy :)

you all are so fooled on brad and angelina crap.these two are so unhappy together.look at there faces it does’nt take a fool to figure it all out.wake up people
