Deadline reports Angelina is in talks to star in a “big-scale movie” written and directed by Luc Besson, who’s worked on the Transporter franchise.

Angie would potentially star “next spring in a dramatic thriller that is rooted in true scientific elements,” according to the website.

    Wonderful to see Angelina doing her promotional rounds. It seems ITLOBAH is well received by the critics. Wonderful first effort for this young woman.

  • Andamentothat

    Go Ange! Hopefully we get to read a transcript of the Q&A.

  • MJ

    @skina nd bones: Scary to ha? ‘coz Angie even on her weight she still did not complain how busy she is, that she did not have time to lay in the couch unlike Anuston who asked her therapist and found out that laying in the couch is normal. Yeah! for those lazy ones but for Angie, she has to get up and do something. Angie is just amazing, and that’s what makes you scared.

  • Elle

    Her face looks so beautiful here. I think she looks quite young and her skin is so perfect.

  • Debra Pitt-Lover

    This woman can do no wrong!


    Jolie means BUSINESS with a captial B !
    Go Angelina, do your thang and show those stupid vacous whiny bimbos fed with Sandler movies who is the boss and at the top of the world !

  • juju

    angelina looks beautiful
    she must be exhausted by now

  • okay

    Her makeup looks a lot better than it did yesterday. No more of that terrible tv makeup caked on. She looks beautiful and more comfortable in what she’s wearing.

  • jpfan
  • Wow

    Long legs…I’m sure if she didn’t get into acting, she would have probably been a really successful model. Kate Moss is 5’7 and so in angelina..Giselle has a strong face, but Angie’s is sensual and excotic, but also masculine and commands attention.

  • A.Y.

    she looks so professional and confident!!!!!
    love you Angelina!
    Best wishes for In the Land of Blood and Honey!

    Angelina Jolie Debuts New Look For Her Directorial Self

    When we think of Angelina Jolie on the red carpet, we think of tight Versace gowns, strapless everything, her arms bare, side slits, etc etc. As a movie star, she’s the epitome of the brunette bombshell.
    Now that she’s stepping out as a first time director with In the Land of Blood and Honey, she’s switching up her image with the help of her longtime stylist Jen Rade. An evening skirt and a blouse at a movie premier in New York? And when did our Angelina ever wear Ralph Lauren?
    It’s not a bad plan for Angelina to look more lowkey and not show off her amazing body. We’ve always been a fan of the evening skirt and it’s interesting she chose pleats, which convery a bit of a schoolgirl feeling — studious, innocent, bookish. She also wore a Ralph Lauren Bedford handbag earlier in the week in New York. Do we smell an ad campaign in the works?
    Wanna bet when she goes to the Globes and the Oscars with Brad Pitt it’s back to skin tight and cleavage?

    few reviews we saw from few critics were great

  • busted


    so true. but here is the thing.. When what they hope for fails they do the fall back. Angie and the Pitts were quite happy and love up. so that means the tabloid sh*t was fake. They actually thought that dumb lawsuit was going to derail Angie Promotion for her film. NOPE.. the early word on the film is she “knocked it out of the park” (perfect analogy for the Moneyball connection.

    Brad and Angie and family are in NYC.. together.. Angie is beautiful as usual so they have the She is Skinny.. that is all they got. But notice how the people at these events are raving over how Gorgeous she is. Stunning. Unbelievably so..

    Angie is on the top of the world and so is Brad. Let them whine. I guess they were trying to get stories for the tabloids. Same old same old. How many Angie is skinny stories have been written. Too many to count.

    So skinny is all the got.

  • lurker

    They are boring and annoying am looking foward to the movie

  • Jen

    Angie looks well rested and glowing.
    I hope she and Brad were able to have a date night all to themselves last night after the after party.
    They are both busy making the rounds promoting their movies.
    So glad grammy and Pappa Pitt are there with them in NYC.
    I hope after they are done with their promotions they will have a couple of months just for themselves. It has been a busy year for them and they deserve some time off.
    What a beautiful couple and a beautiful family.

    These are the tweets we see all the time about Angie and Brad. I have never seen a negative thing said by anyone that has met either of them.

    I love how she was nervous at the Premier. Brad gave her a little whisper and a kiss. sweet.

    when is the LA premiere??

  • divagirl715

    Put simply, the woman IS the living end. She is truly the ultimate woman. She is our female superhero…no, just our superhero. Because She is beyond gender. Beyond human even. I mean who has 6 kids, flys airplanes, stars in action films, tours over 20 countries helping refugees, stops in at Walter Reed regularly, rides motorcycles, stars/acts in A-list films winning Academy Awards, does their OWN stunts AND then writes & directs her own film about one of most horrific human genocide wars of all time? Angie. Superhero.

    Behind the Camera, but Still the Star

    Published: December 6, 2011

    Once the red carpet follies were over, the war correspondent Christiane Amanpour introduced the film, calling it “remarkable and courageous” while warning that there was “no way to sugarcoat” the atrocities it portrays. The afterparty, at a nightclub high atop a hip New York hotel in the meatpacking district, complete with the usual supercilious doormen, rotating disco ball and thumping music, was co-sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations and the human rights group Women for Women International.

    That was the atmosphere on Monday night at the New York premiere of “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” a harrowing look at the fratricidal Bosnian war of the 1990s: an unusual convergence of foreign policy seriousness and Hollywood glamour. But that is the way that Angelina Jolie, who wrote, directed and co-produced the film, operates these days.

    “I’ve had fun as an actress,” Ms. Jolie said in an interview over the weekend at the Waldorf-Astoria. “It’s a very fun job, and I’ve had great experiences. But my heart has been on these foreign policy issues, and my interests are there. So to be able to combine them and be part of international affairs that way, working toward solutions and being part of a good dialogue with good people, felt like a nice evolution to me.”

    “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” which opens on Dec. 23 and is Ms. Jolie’s directorial debut, tells the stories of Ajla, a Bosnian Muslim woman, and Danijel, a Serbian police officer, who meet in Sarajevo just before the war starts. Through them it examines the broader conflict, which killed more than 100,000 people, displaced 2 million more and introduced the term “ethnic cleansing” to the lexicon of war. Ms. Jolie, who chose not to act in the film, said that among the experts she consulted while making the film were Richard C. Holbrooke, the architect of the Dayton accords, which ended the conflict in December 1995; Gen. Wesley Clark, the former NATO commander; and the foreign correspondent Tom Gjelten, who covered the Balkan wars for National Public Radio.

    When the war broke out in 1992 Ms. Jolie, now 36, was, as she put it, “a young punk” who “wasn’t paying too much attention” and was “not very politically involved or aware.” (Her breakthrough role, in the HBO movie “Gia,” was still six years away, and her days as catnip to glossy magazine editors and gossip columnists everywhere had not yet arrived.) But in recent years, even as news media accounts breathlessly followed every twist of her life with Brad Pitt and their six children, she has drawn much attention for her work as a good-will ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and her lobbying on behalf of displaced people.

    She and cast members described her new film as stemming from the same humanitarian impulse. “It’s another one of her missions, actually,” said Rade Serbedzija, a Croatian Serb actor who has played villains in Hollywood productions like “Mission: Impossible II” and “The Saint” and plays a malevolently nationalistic Serbian general in Ms. Jolie’s film.

    But Ms. Jolie is also aware that, given her image as a Hollywood star, her pursuit of more weighty matters may expose her to ridicule. For every critically acclaimed movie by George Clooney or Sean Penn, there’s a mercilessly mocked Madonna or Kevin Spacey vanity project.

    “Maybe people will see this film and judge it differently, in a negative way, because I made it,” she said. “But at the same time, I don’t think I could have gotten it made unless I had a strong career.”

    Without her involvement, she added, the film, which cost under $15 million, “might not have been made at all, especially because of this subject matter, which in Hollywood is famously difficult.”

    As she views it, her celebrity is both blessing and burden. She is on the cover of Newsweek this week and is scheduled to appear on “Charlie Rose” this month, trying in every appearance to get the public interested in her film and the issues it raises, including rape as a war crime and the ethics of international intervention.

    “I’d like it to be good for something,” she said of her fame. “When you’re young, and somebody sits you down for an interview, you don’t know what to say or why you’re there, because you ha

    “I’d like it to be good for something,” she said of her fame. “When you’re young, and somebody sits you down for an interview, you don’t know what to say or why you’re there, because you haven’t formed yourself. I still don’t completely know what to say or do, but I at least have some focus, purpose and direction as to what can be put out in the world that is thoughtful and helpful — as opposed to just what you’re wearing.”

    Ms. Jolie laughed, as if at the absurdity of her situation, then said that trying to advance causes that interest her “makes more sense of the madness of it all — because it is such a weird world.”

    But she also noted that “with certain outlets and certain reporters it is an uphill battle” to deflect focus away from her and onto her film and its cast. Indeed, on the red carpet on Monday night, cast members had to field questions about what it was like to work with Ms. Jolie and how much time her children spent on the set. And then there was this: “Angelina has a lot of tattoos. Did you see them?”

    Ms. Jolie said, “It baffles me that with so many people we’ve had to ask, ‘Don’t you want to meet such an extraordinary group with such an extraordinary history?’ ”

    For example, Vanesa Glodjo, a Bosnian who was raised outside Sarajevo and plays Ajla’s older sister, was wounded by shrapnel in the head, leg and hand when a mortar hit her house during the war. Fedja Stukan, who plays a particularly thuggish Serbian soldier, fought for two years in Bosnia, then feigned insanity and fled to Germany.

    For them, both as citizens of what was once Yugoslavia and as actors, Ms. Jolie’s desire to make a film about their experience came as a welcome surprise. They were particularly pleased that she decided to shoot two versions of the film — one in English and the other in Bosnian.

    Cast members described Ms. Jolie on the set as a calm presence, mindful of gaps in her own knowledge of the war and open to their suggestions. Mr. Serbedzija drew a parallel to Clint Eastwood, who directed him in “Space Cowboys” more than a decade ago.

    “She reminds me very much of his style, because both of them are so gentle, so quiet, without any performing,” Mr. Serbedzija said. “They are not directors trying to explain too much. No, it’s understanding actors, almost whispering what to do.”

    For her part, Ms. Jolie seemed ambivalent when asked whether “In the Land of Blood and Honey” could be the start of the kind of second career as a director that Mr. Eastwood and Robert Redford have had.

    “I loved being on the other side of the camera, watching the other actors,” she replied. “I loved the experience of doing it, but I’m not confident yet that I am good at it. So I don’t know.”

    Nevertheless, she said she had started on another script, one that the producer Graham King, who worked with her on “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and “The Tourist,” her previous film, has asked about.

    “He came up to me and said, ‘What’s the next one?’ ” she recalled, “and I said, ‘Afghanistan.’ And he started laughing, and I said, ‘I’m not kidding.’ ”

    I really love Angie and I have been a fan since Girl, Interrupted, but she really needs to get a new stylist. Her clothing choice should reflect her beauty. And to the regulars on this site, please don’t go postal. I am just stating my opinion. I love her but I don’t like the way she dresses.
