Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt: Benihana Family Dinner!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt take their family for dinner at Benihana Restaurant on Sunday (January 2) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The family is back home after spending time in Springfield, Missouri visiting Brad’s relatives for a post-Christmas get together!

While in Springfield, Angelina stopped at a Barnes and Noble for a fresh cup of coffee with her daughters Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 4.

It was just announced that Brad and Angelina donated $2 million to a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, where the family spent their Christmas holiday.

    @susie

    Isn’t that your government’s job? They’re the people who spent billions on two wars instead of fixing the problems at home.
    ———————————————
    Well said Joe. Fictitious wars (one for oil the other for minerals, oil pipeline and gold) that have claimed over 2 million ordinary people’s lives. Just think what that money could have achieved put to positive instead of negative use. Could probably have wiped out homelessness.

    excuse -me ,that place is for to talk about brangelinos??? and why do you talk about others ??? ahhh beacuse you love she ..,yes the dame …not brangelinos…

    .
    Don’t say that to Susie. She probably beleived in the WMD’s sham and was all for the unecessary Irak war that plunges the country into a huge financial debt.
    .
    Not to mention that the recession we live in is partly due because some American fradulent financial person play god with loans and provok the failure of the financial system on a global scale.
    .
    And now those idiots like Susie wants Jolie who is criticized left and right by american critics, insulted by an american comedian and trashed all day long by mostly her countrymen pay the bill for their lazy asses, bad decisions and professional mistakes.
    .
    Yeah right !

    FYI – I was against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, against the moves made on Wall Street that devastated our country (yes, it affected me too), against the policies put into place by W that started our downhill plunge. No I did not believe stories about WMDs; they were used as scare tactics and later found to be false. I believe that Americans usually give a hand up to the not-so-fortunate, and that all I was suggesting. It’s what makes the U.S. great.

    So, if you want to call posters here names, why not start with the “idiots” who can’t spell, and their grammar sucks.

    I agree with the poster who suggested that the J-Ps should have made their donation anonymously, and not for a photo op.

  • BRANGELINA FREAK SHOW

    Anorexic Vampira, her spineless brainless bland sidekick who does tricks at her bidding, and their band of motley hobbits.
    @Susie#1: Why would they do anything off-camera? How would that benefit their freak show? If they didn’t have attention, they’d implode spectacularly. Other celebrities and average citizens donate every single day, but Brangelina has to make it part of their freak show.

  • Some Bunny

    @Susie#1: You mean the way Aniston made her donation anonymously to the banks of Luxembourg to evade US taxes. Angelina Jolie and Brad do well in the world, in the USA and internationally. I don’t think they owe the USA anything they have already done major things in NO and other places like Haiti. I love America and am a citizen but that way of thinking is clear prejudice.

  • Some Bunny

    LOL @ the bitter b!tches. I bet they have done NOTHING to help others, except writing nonsense on blogs to help their failing rom com bomb Jennay.

  • LMAO at The Tourist

    THE FOCKERS made more money than The Tourist in half the time.
    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • briseis

    @Susie#1: When Leonardo made a public donation of $1M to the Save the Tiger campaign, I didn’t see your name on that thread at JustJared to dis him. Sandra Bullock has donated $1M to NOLA, and I believe to Haiti, I didn’t see you telling her to shut up and donate anonymously. In fact, all I see in those threads were praises for these celebrities’ generosity. Even Ticky’s meager donation of 3 USED handbags to El Faro was not met with disdain but with high praises. But Brad and Angelina, who are true humanitarians and philantropists, are always met with jeers by haters. Something’s not right with this world when your good deeds are punished in the media. Thank goodness Brad and Angelina stay above the fray.
    =================
    I guess these are the talking now from Huvane. Since obviously Brad ain’t going back to Ticky, the Pitts love their daughter-in-law, the kids are fine, the Tourist ain’t bombing — then dis the charitable efforts. Anything just to prop up Ticky and dis the JPs. I guess the New Year starts with the same-old, same-old.

  • WHO IS SALT ?

    # Susie
    .
    Then donate YOURSELF, ask your other citizen around you to donate too instead of just the Brange,.

    .
    Campaign to bring your boys home so that your government will put more money in its needy citizens than in wars. Spend less time in front of the computer to save money that you can give to your homeless. Go outside with a rug, some of your clothes and give them to them. open your home for one night so that they can sleep in your couch and have a shower. Share your meal if you can.
    .
    ACT INSTEAD OF WHINING fort someone else to take care of YOUR concern…unless uyou are NOT that concern about your citizen living in the street.
    .
    And tell your idole to stop helping those people in mexico and instead donate millions dollars to her citizens or better yet, to open her mansion to ten of them so that they can sleep on a couch..
    .
    After all she has no family to support and make enough money from residuals and from the Dumb Water campaign !

  • LMAO at The Tourist

    @beautiful yes, but: It’s beyond freaky. You get 10 or so fans who have nothing else to live for and, boom, obsession! It’s like a bunch of brainwashed idiots who will probably off themselves when Brangelina finally gets bored with each other. Honestly, I don’t know how she stands his armpit stink (it’s been widely reported) and he stands her bony prominences. It has to hurt. Unless of course he’s too doped up to feel it.

  • WHO IS SALT ?

    Now the hens think that Little Flockers belong to them…too ashame to compare Maniston product, they have to rely in hijacking someone’else job to make their point
    .
    I understand, since their idole is a loser with nothing to be proud of.

    Although Benihana is not as expensive as Matsuya, that doesnt mean the JoliePitt family ordered bento boxes. So DONT ASSUME !!!

    Benihana restaurant is famous for sitting at a big table, around a big cooking surface, the chef cooks in front of you, the cook does all those fancy “tricks” like “flipping” while cooking .

    I’m sure the children will find very entertaining.

    ===================================
    Listen, anyone who makes a donation will get tax write off, not just the JoliePitts.

    If Obama makes contribution, he’ll get the tax write off , just like any US citizen.

    Anyone who has an ounce of brain, will do year end tax planning. It’s YOU when you dont have much money will not benefit from tax planning.

    @LMAO at The Tourist: Surely you wrote this crap just to get a rile out of the JP’s fans for your perverted amusement, because I can’t imagine there are humans as stupid and shallow as you are. A 2nd grader child of mine has better critical thinking skill and is more thoughtful than you, and Susie#1 and the likes.

    Worry about your man/woman getting tired of your sad excuse of a human first, would you.

  • saywhat?

    Someone said they wished more actors would give back like the JPs, yes they should but the bankers, CEOs (that collect like fat hogs when they are handing out pink slips to their employees), Media Conglomerates, Corporate Honchos, etc. that hoard their money instead of investing their back into the economy that employs people into work…such as producing goods (Since 2001, the U.S. has lost 42,400 factories — and its technical edge.)in America or even around the globe..would help everyone. Nowadays, the richest hoard their wealth..bank it offshore, avoid taxes and brag it about it. At least, Brad and Angelina put some people to work with their donations…save lives, give a hand UP. The houses are not free in NOLA but Make It Right makes it doable in the 9th Ward and it is funneled back into the foundation for the next family’s house. The JPs are doing their part to Make It Right everywhere while the other rich snots jealous of their success do their best to tear them down. What have they done? Jmho, Industrial Military Complex (looking at you in the U.S.)…instead of selling weapons around the world, help the people that lives you have destroyed around the world…clean up the Industrial Media Complex also…the “journalists” have become jokes, hope people realize it is their bosses to go after first, the ones that get the big bucks and responsible for the LIES and TRASH.

    Let’s see….http://www.nzherald.co.nz/relationships/news/article.cfm?c_id=41&objectid=10670162

    Real truth about Jenny, the coat-tale rider who employs the publicist and his buddies that actively work to bring down the JPs. This loser keeps the JPs from helping more people. Disgusting.

  • Lovel

    Angie looks marvlous. What a beauty! Hard to see Brad and not clear view for zee and I guess mad . Who don’t like Nice sunday dinner with family!? I hope they have a great time. I alsoHope more good follow the JP because they never stopped giving. Glad to see The tourist numbers reaching 120mww. Wow! that is what some haters said it will hit all together but haters , hear this 150m is almost assured at this point and it even has a shot to hit 200 ww. :D:D:D

    Susie#1:
    I agree with the poster who suggested that the J-Ps should have made their donation anonymously, and not for a photo op.
    ========================

    First off, they have a foundation. Ever worked with a foundation? I have. It is their business to BRING ATTENTION to the causes they support in order to generate publicity for said cause and FURTHER DONATIONS. This is no different from Bill and Melinda Gates and their foundation — they donate money and release a press statement to publicize their intentions. Where is the criticism for them?

    Donations from Brad and Angelina help bring light to causes in Africa, Asia, Haiti, New Orleans (which is in the U.S.) and St. John’s Jane Pitt Pediatric Center (also in the U.S.) — and hopefully encourage others to also donate. I have.

    I find it appalling people are criticizing them for how they donate their money or that their concern should be U.S. first. First off, it is their money and secondly, their donations and support for certain causes and foreign countries DOES NOT mean they are insensitive to what’s going on in the U.S. They both have traveled to a lot of places decimated by war and devastation and have seen firsthand the effects on the people. And yet, they’re being selfish with their money because they’re not donating their money to U.S. causes only?

    Puh-leeze….

    If that is such a concern, then instead of criticizing them, people should follow their example and donate their time or money to those less fortunate — whether they’re in the U.S. or abroad.

    @paps with them: As if you and average Americans don’t look for way to write off tax.

  • saywhat?

    In the video at the restaurant, it looked like Maddox had a little friend along or does Brad have a nephew about Madd’s age that he might have brought to LA for a visit?

    Angie looks beautiful, as she always does….on JJB, you can tell whoever snapped their pic (and sent it out on twitter)…Brad zoned in on them immediately, he knows when people are intruding on his family. I feel bad for looking, but cannot help it…I adore this family.

  • saywhat?

    @Erianthe:

    They probably didn’t announce it, the receiving end did. Did you see pictures of the place? It is a beautiful place to stay and I bet they will get more people coming to stay at this resort –sanctuary type place where the profits goes back into helping the wildlife. Brad and Angelina bring AWARENESS to people. Hopefully those who can do, will do more to help and they might even up staying at this beautiful resort, perhaps their lives will change for the better. I wonder if it was a different celeb, would you being saying the same? At least they are not supporting a place where the kill the animals for sport to hang on the wall or lay on their floor, unlike some rich and powerful do…

  • Kim

    I think Brad’s youngest nephew is 12 or 13 besides the Ethiopian boys his sister adopted they are probably between 3-6 y.o.

    ——————-

    I agree. Why should it just be Brad and Angelina doing their part to give back? Or any actor/actress for that matter? Where are the CEOs, investment bankers, and other senior-level execs from firms and corporations with their donations? Where’s their helping hand? And most importantly, why aren’t people criticizing them?

    ====================

    No, sorry, I was referring to when they made their donation to Haiti, etc. and speaking in terms of how a foundation work when it is necessary to put statement out there to shed light on the cause.

    But, no I was not aware that the wildlife sanctuary was most likely responsible for the donation announcement. Thanks for the clarification.

  • busted

    @Passing Through:

    Well one can try and give these fools an out so they can move on.. The thing is they are uber pissed that Brad and Angie are still together. So mad that they were wrong.

    I laugh at the comments because they don’t know what to do or how to handle that this couple is still together while at least 20+ others have broken up..

    Live and Karma is SWEET

    Fashion- and lady-mag covers featuring Lady Gaga were among the strongest selling across titles last year, while those featuring Taylor Swift were among the worst. Gaga’s Rolling Stone cover — which also included the provocative profile of Stanley McChrystal — sold three times as well as the average copy of the magazine in 2010. Her Vanity Fair cover was the magazine’s second-best seller, behind Angelina Jolie’s. Her Elle cover was the magazine’s third-best seller, while her Cosmopolitan cover was the magazine’s number-one-selling issue.

    So glad to see them home and safe after their holiday. recommend to any JP fan to check out
    FUTURE CELEBRITY GOSSIP.COM
    there is a story on Zahara that is quite unusual and that they are going to be adopting twins in the future.
    Dont know if any truth but interesting if you are a fan.
    Thanks for the new pics JJ please keep them coming.

  • busted

    @sophie:

    They are not going to adopt twins.. INSANE. I think they may adopt another child in the future or NOT. but Angie has said over and over that there are NO PLANS to adopt and that the balance of the kids is very nice. She has also said that they are mindful of not having too many kids. Twins are a hand full and they already got a surprise of twins.

    These sites don’t listen. Angie also said she had only planed to have two babies naturally so there you go.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. Plus these idiots didn’t know where they were going for the Holiday until people started tweeting sightings and you think they have such intimate knowledge of an adoption.

    YEAH RIGHT.
