Angelina Jolie Dreams of Crossing the Sahara

Angelina Jolie Dreams of Crossing the Sahara

Angelina Jolie sat down with the Financial Times on a recent trip to Los Angeles and revealed one of her ultimate dreams – to cross the Sahara!

Here is what the 36-year-old actress had to share:

On dreaming of crossing the Sahara: “It takes 28 days …it would have to be on a camel. I wonder if I could do it in pieces and station the kids along the way.”

On her recent “girls trip” to Los Angeles: “It’s been hard – I’ve been [in Los Angeles] for a week and it’s very unusual to separate for this long. I brought the girls so we’re having a special girl trip. All the boys are hanging out with Brad … he’s filming a zombie movie [World War Z].”

On her children embracing each others cultures: “They are all learning about each others cultures as well as being proud of their own. So it’s not like just the boys get to do the Asian thing. They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride. We owe Vietnam a visit, because Pax is due. Z wants to get back to Africa, and Shiloh too. So everyone takes their turns in their country.”

    I guess McStumpy ain’t doing it for Ticky as far as publicity is concerned, so why not go back to the Triangle? It’s old and hoary but still gets Ticky the publicity she craves. The tabs never even gave her the full cover, JLo’s split from MA didn’t even make the full cover except for sidebars, Angelina and Brad still are it for tab sales. I think the tabs owe Angelina a lot of money for all the sales she’s doing for them. They could donate half of it to Angie’s favorite charities.

    The Tree Of Life

    There is a third possible reaction, however, to this film, and that is awe. Awe at Malick’s uncompromising vision and his nearly contemptuous disregard for linearity or conventionality.

    Awe at his persistence in developing the concept for this film over decades and spending nearly three years filming after studio execs told him he was ‘crazy’.

    Awe at the jaw-dropping visuals Malick shows us: the birth of the universe (the Big Bang, with subtle visual cues that draw parallels to the process of fertilisation in humans), stars colliding, oceans rising and falling, microbes multiplying, cells undergoing mitosis and meiosis and so on and so forth.

    We watch his father (Brad Pitt in a powerhouse performance), an inventor who gave up music for practical reasons, discipline Jack and his brothers with a firm hand.

    I once visited what they call the Sahel below the Sahara. I, like many westerners saw and coveted the turban headdress many of the men wore. I bought an indigo blue one and learned how to wear it (it’s about 6 ft. long). But what I thought looked really cool was seeing this white girl with a similar but red turban. Made her look queenly.
    I hope Angie one day does make this trip wearing exotic turbans and flowing robes atop a camel. And I hope she sends pictures. I wonder if she read Robyn Davidson’s, “Tracks”?

    Perhaps, folks in the know, should reminiscence about the crappy state of the Pitt-Aniston marriage and what was or wasn’t happening in that union. Could you imagine having to live your life via Jenny and Stephen’s lies?
    Seems to me-whether or not, Brad Pitt met the beautiful Angelina Jolie, he was not content to stick around in a dead-end merger without the children he craved, without getting out of the shallow rut his wife deemed to put him in via tanning, margarita swilling, tokin’, snorkin’ and smokin’ , Cabo beach 6 months vacas, don’t do charity…all about Jenny. ETC.

    Looks like Spielberg better buy up some tickets like Baby Jane. Can’t have the smurfs beating all those stars.

    FRIDAY PM/SATURDAY AM, 2ND UPDATE: What’s more humiliating than Hollywood execs overestimating opening day for Cowboys & Aliens and having it fall short? Having the well-pedigreed motion picture with big Hollywood writers (Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman), stars (Daniel Craig & Harrison Ford), director (Jon Favreau), and producers (Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, & Brian Grazer) beaten at the box office by The Smurfs.

    I was just going to post something about the BO this weekend. Daniel and Harrison may be beaten by the Smurfs. seriously.WOW.. But will that be a tabloid story NOT. And they pissed on Angie for bringing in 36 million on her own little shoulders against a movie that the fanboys had to go on a hate campaign against it for it to stay at #1 that week. Yeah I remember

    anyway. I actually like Daniel, but I read a Laimey write up a while ago about how she was doing her usual uninformed spill about how C&A and GWTDT going to make Daniel the biggest star in the world. WTF.. he is James Bond. that alone should have made him a big star. I remember all that uproar over how Daniel and Rachel were the hottest new couple. OK. to each his own.

    but the media/gossips hens need to stop with this over hype of these men. They did it with Ryan R, Bradley C, Gerard B, and now Daniel and Ryan G. Good looking men but.. (fill in your own blank) The media and those female gossip blogs do this all the time. Same with John H. Who I think is attractive, but not the major sh^t women go on about. (rant) I think he should leave that show STAT and do something else.

    I have to say for me men have to have an appeal to other men to really make it to that other world status. They have to have an appeal to the male market. sorry women as your core audience does not equal superstar status. Does anyone recall all that Patrick Dempsey hype from that show Grey’s when he started films. and now well..

    I’m just fascinated by how these men are doing at the BO. How all this over hype is playing out. I hate that Harrison Ford seems to be phoning in all his performances. Like he is doing stuff for the paycheck. What the heck is going on.

    The JP family may be one of the most if not the most popular, sought after family in the world. In spite of the privileges, they seem to live like a normal family AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. It is just unfortunate that every breathe they take, every move they make, is always OVER ANALYZED by fans or no fans alike. Maybe one may say it’s part of the territory….of their being famous. However, sometimes I find it odd that even the littlest, the smallest detail of their movement or what have you, is SCRUTINIZED so much…..every time. Sometimes I wish, the public just leave them alone & let them be… Let them live as human beings for once….
    Let us just enjoy their pics, and take their replies in their interviews as it is…whether we agree with them or not.

    @Sahara desert, really?:Yeah they hate The States that’s why they bought a house in NOLA for $3.5M and donated $5M to Make It Right to build homes for Katrina survivors and Donated $1 million to St John Hospital in Springfield , MO and Donated $150,000 to SOS Villages USA.Donated $500,000 to Joplin Hurrican relief fund… FYI they are only renting house in France according to Brad in an interview done at Cannes. Yeah I guess she could go tanning in Mexico rather than having a goal to Cross the Sahara the largest desert in Africa. The second largest desert in the world after Antartica. I love how adventuresome Brad and Angie are . I vaguely recall Brad talking about riding a motorycle on a cross country trip I think. I’m sure Angie will accomplish this goal just like she became a pilot, directed a film, created a large beautiful family. She is about Doing it not just talking about it.

    @Jasmine: #5
    You are an idiot. Angie never said Africa OR Asia is a country.
    She just mentioned her sons were born on the continent of Asia , and her daughters were born on the continent of Africa. In lieu of mentioning all four countries.

    To be fair, who doesn’t like the Smurfs? I remember them from 30 years ago.

    @Appletini: The Smurfs! Gahh, I remember from way back when I had to read to my niece and nephews all about Papa Smurf, Smurfette and all the other blue goblins. Thank God my son was born after the Smurf craze, but I had to put up with the purple dinosaur, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Thomas the Tank Engine. If I had saved half the money I spent buying these kids the stuffed animals, the toys, the matching plates and cups, the t-shirts, etc etc etc I’d be ready to retire by now. And what I spent on the light sabers when Star Wars Episode 1 came out. Whew! Now son of mine has to buy his own Derrick Rose jerseys and shoes because Mama is broke!

    Angelina Jolie in Bosnia for film festival

    The Associated Press
    Published: Saturday, Jul. 30, 2011 – 10:54 am

    SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have arrived in Bosnia’s capital to take part in the closing ceremony of the eight-day Sarajevo Film Festival.

    Festival organizers said Saturday the actress will be receiving a special award during the surprise visit.

    Jolie has visited Bosnia last year several times as UNHCR ambassador and drew attention to the plight of 117,000 people who haven’t able to return to their homes even though the Bosnia war ended 15 years ago.

    She also shot some of the scenes of her first movie as director – a love story between a Serb man and Bosnian Muslim woman who fall in love and get separated during the war.
