American Foundation for Equal Rights and Broadway Impact Announce: Brad Pitt Joins All-Star Cast of West Coast Premiere Reading of Proposition 8 Play
–Reading of “8″ to Be Streamed Live on YouTube on Saturday, March 3 –WATCH AT:

http://www.youtube.com/AmericanEqualRights

LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact are pleased to announce the addition of Golden Globe-winner and Academy and Emmy Award-nominee Brad Pitt to the cast of the West Coast premiere reading of the play “8.” The reading is an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown), the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry.

AFER and Broadway Impact are also pleased to announce that the performance will be streamed live on YouTube, beginning at 7:45 p.m. PST. A pre-show will begin on YouTube at 7:30 p.m. PST. Rob Reiner, director of Saturday’s performance, recorded a video explaining the reading of the play and inviting people to watch the live stream. The live stream of the West Coast premiere reading of “8″ and Rob Reiner’s video can both be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/AmericanEqualRights .

“At long last each and every American will be able to see for themselves what happens when prejudice and fear are put on trial in a court of law,” said AFER Board President Chad Griffin. “For over two years, the anti-marriage proponents of Proposition 8 have fought tooth and nail to hide their discriminatory arguments from the American people. But on Saturday night, thanks to YouTube and our incredible cast, people across the nation, from Los Angeles to Little Rock to Baltimore, will get to watch as our Constitution’s promise of liberty and equality for all is protected.”

Written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and AFER Founding Board Member Dustin Lance Black and directed by acclaimed actor and director and AFER Founding Board Member Rob Reiner, “8″ will have its West Coast premiere reading on Saturday, March 3, 2012, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. Bryan Singer, acclaimed director of The Usual Suspects and X-Men, is Saturday night’s presenting sponsor. The benefit event will support the fight to secure full federal marriage equality.

Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film Milk and the film J. Edgar, based “8″ on the actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.

Brad Pitt will star as United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who found Proposition 8 unconstitutional after presiding over the historic twelve-day public trial.

Pitt joins an all-star cast led by Academy and Golden Globe Award-winner and Emmy Award-nominee George Clooney and Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Martin Sheen as Plaintiffs’ lead co-counsel David Boies and Theodore B. Olson, the renowned attorneys who notably faced-off in Bush v. Gore.

Academy, Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Christine Lahti and Golden Globe Award-winner Jamie Lee Curtis will star as plaintiffs Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, a lesbian couple together for eleven years and the parents of four boys. Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony Award-nominee Matthew Morrison and acclaimed White Collar television star Matt Bomer will play plaintiffs Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, a gay couple together over ten years.

Golden Globe Award-winner and Emmy Award-nominee Kevin Bacon will play Charles J. Cooper, the lead attorney for the anti-marriage proponents of Proposition 8. Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Jane Lynch will star as prominent opponent of marriage equality Maggie Gallagher, co-founder and former chairman of the National Organization for Marriage. Academy, Golden Globe and Grammy Award-nominee John C. Reilly will play David Blankenhorn, founder and president of the Institute for American Values.

Additional roles will be played by Emmy Award-winning journalist Campbell Brown; Golden Globe Award-winner, SAG and Emmy Award-nominee Chris Colfer; Emmy Award-nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson; prominent gay rights activist Cleve Jones; Tony Award-nominee Rory O’Malley; acclaimed Star Trek television and film star George Takei; Emmy Award-winner Yeardley Smith; and Vanessa Garcia, Jansen Panatierre, James Pickens, Jr. and Bridger Zadina.

The Los Angeles reading of “8″ comes just weeks after a landmark decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upholding the historic August 2010 ruling of the Federal District Court that found Proposition 8 unconstitutional. The Ninth Circuit concluded:

# 4

“Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples. The Constitution simply does not allow for laws of this sort.”

The story for “8″ is framed by the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, and features the best arguments and testimony from both sides. Scenes include flashbacks to some of the more jaw-dropping moments from trial, such as the admission by the Proposition 8 supporters’ star witness, David Blankenhorn, that “we would be more American on the day we permitted same-sex marriage than we were on the day before.”

“People need to witness what happened in the Proposition 8 trial, if for no other reason than to see inequality and discrimination unequivocally rejected in a court of law where truth and facts matter,” said Black. “I’ve built my career around exposing and uncovering ‘the real story.’ The goal of ’8′ is to show the world that marriage equality is a basic constitutional right and that those who would deny this basic freedom from loving, committed couples have only vitriol and baseless hyperbole to fall back on. The facts are on our side and truth always finds the light. We are doing all we can to help speed that process along.”

“Because this case involves the constitutional rights of millions of people, it is especially important for the public to see what happened during the trial,” said AFER Executive Director Adam Umhoefer. “Both sides had an equal opportunity and ample resources to assemble their strongest teams and put forth their absolute best arguments in an impartial setting. Viewed side-by-side there is simply no question that there was only one decision the court could have reached. The moment we knew the trial would not be publicly broadcast we immediately began planning to find a way to show the world what happened in this historic case. This play and our partnership with YouTube and Broadway Impact allow us to do exactly that.”

“8″ had its much-heralded Broadway world premiere reading on September 19, 2011, at the sold-out Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York City. The benefit brought in over $1 million to support AFER’s efforts to achieve full federal marriage equality.

Throughout 2012, AFER and Broadway Impact are licensing”8″ for free to colleges and community theatres nationwide in order to spur dialogue, understanding and action. Most performances will be followed by a talkback where cast and audience members can discuss the issues presented in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial.

“I was lucky enough to watch the closing arguments of Perry v. Schwarzenegger in San Francisco,” said Broadway Impact co-founder Rory O’Malley (Tony Award-nominee for The Book of Mormon). “We knew then and there that audiences needed to see and hear this story live, as we had done. ’8′ builds on a successful tradition of documentary theatre–plays like The Laramie Project and The ****** Monologues, which inspire us with their combination of art and activism. We are thrilled to partner with AFER to bring this story to a national audience.”

ANISTON SENDS ANGIE FLOWERS @ 03/01/2012 at 9:43 am +1

Hi peeps you knew sooner or later, Huvane was going to attach Manistons name to the beautiful Angie especially after Wanderlust flopped big time. The latest headlines are “Aniston sends Angie flowers after watching ITLOBAH, telling Angie it was beautifully written and directed”. Not only that, it says that Maniston is so happy now that she is in a relationship that she is willing to let the past go. This is HUVANE TACTICS 101 – deflect the bombing of Wanderlust by attaching Maniston to Angie, that way people will start talking about the two instead of the bombed movie – nice job Huvane. NOT.

Grandma Betty & Brad's Aun @ 03/01/2012 at 10:05 am

This is sad and i think Brad’s Aunty might have just burnt her bridges with the family. The tabloid “Sun” has a picture of Brad & Angie & Brad’s entire family back in 2008 when they visited. It appears grandma is complaining that Brad has never gone to see her again and she is asking to see him . The thing that bothers me is instead of the Aunty picking up the phone and calling Brad or the family, she sells the story to a tabloid, complete with a photograph. But one thing is for sure, Brad’s family loves Angie coz the entire clan is in that photo and the Aunty & grandma have good things to say about Angie,contrary to what Jen’s fans think.

If clooney is ok with people thinkng he is gay than why was he upset when Brad said Angelina and him would get married when George could?

++++++++++++++++++++++

Cuz Porgie’s a big fat liar, that’s why. He cares that people think he’s gay. He’s just not going to admit it because it looks like an admittance to being gay or thinking that being gay is wrong or a sin. That would be insulting a whole demographic of Oscar voters that he may need in the future. God forbid he should lose the gay, old white man Academy members. That sounds comical but if you think about the entertainment industry that’s probably a significant number of voters.

no job aniston @ 03/01/2012 at 10:28 am

@ANISTON SENDS ANGIE FLOWERS: Brad will give you employment brad and angie are forgiving.The agent encouraged paid bloggers to make fun of angie.

Ran across this interview Gayle King did with SS to promote her new movie. SS told Gayle, “people are very narrow minded to assume” she “can’t be happy without a baby …”. I know the fans remembered the Vogue interview, 2005, when SS said, “I did, I do, I will” talking about having kids. Also, I remember People Magazine last year’s interview, “everyone needs to relax it’s going to happen.”. This year people are narrow minded when they ask her about her promise to have this baby. SS is a major manipulator, no wonder Brad

had said he had no idea what she wanted out of life. It would appear
she does not know what she wants out of life.

Let’s be real, like it or ot… Angelina STOLE the oscars with that pose!! You may not like it, but that is the truth!! They are calling that pose; Leg-endary!! Even Donald Trump say that Angelina looked beautiful and it was great that she did that because she stole the show!!

Well, who cares about being a respected actress, humanitarian, mother if you can be THE JOKE, with people mocking you???? It’s so much cooler to act like a fool and she did steal the night, that’s huge!!!!!!!!!!!!! don’t you see how important is that?????????? That was the most important thing she did in her life!!!!
Kudos to Angelina, what a hero, LOL

@Sure – you are the pathetic loser.

@Sure:
If that was desperate than lets hope Aniston just poses at an award show and doesn’t go naked again to try and sell her movies. And if Angelina was so desperate for attention she would have been on the red carpet an hour earlier.

Angie admittedly cannot sing…….but I bet, as sure as ticky spends four hours a day on her face and body, that Angie is walking around the house humming…….’Please Don’t Send Me Flowers.’ ……………

Guess the tick and her flack decided the push back is no longer working for them…………so flip the switch and calculate how they can appear to now be on the same team…………all professional and big hearted cuz ticky is so concerned about genocide and r*ape during war. What a joke..these two just need a PR intervention and rehab……give it a fcking rest already.

Is he admitting that it wasn’t until ‘now’ that she is in a relationship that she is ‘over’ ‘it’………….hasn’t she espoused it was oh, so a hundred years ago……..and these silly tabs etc. who are keeping alive a non issue. Like PT says, if her lips are moving, she is lying.

@Dc:

What tf is with that picture. Yikes. Hasn’t he used the gays enough to promote himself?

Using the gays again @ 03/01/2012 at 11:06 am

U can really tell he’s wearing a wig in this picture. Check out Cannes photos from when Angelina wore that peach dress with a long slit brads hairline is way different. He was wearing a piece back then too.

Wax Figure Brad? @ 03/01/2012 at 11:10 am

weathered old grandpa

Brad said that about George because he obviously thinks saying George is gay is a funny thing and something to make fun of George for. I liked what George said.

He pretty much bullied George in front of the whole world for being gay. Brad should do a “it gets better” psa. Jerk.

ROTFLMAO. Jesus. What a pantload. Ticky’s movie flops and suddenly she’s watching Angie’s movie and sending Angie flowers? And Brad sent Ticky the movie? Puh-leeze. The last thing Brad sent Ticky was their signed divorce papers. I can’t decide if the tabloids made this up on their own or if it was spoonfed to them by Huvsy. Either way it’s conveniently timed. The last movie Ticky made just bombed…and she has ZERO sure-thing movies lined up…so yeah, she had plenty of time to watch ITLOBAH…but we all know she didn’t because she’s a bitter, jealous hag – even with her new stolen man on her payroll. If Ticky really wanted to make peace with Angie (and Brad) she’d call off her rabid dog of a BFF.

Golly, if this were Angie’s family who sold her out it’d be a worldwide headline. Why isn’t the aunt asking why Bill doesn’t spend more time with his mother? Why is it Brad’s responsibility? And she doesn’t seem to know for sure how close Jane and Bill are to Brad and Angie…so why is she telling tales out of school? I hope she at least got a big payday out of this because if not, blabbing Brad’s business to a UK tablois is not exactly the best way to endear yourself to the rest of the family

bitter aniston @ 03/01/2012 at 11:33 am

Fuels hate for angie.

lol P.T. ticky must be very busy imitating anjie’s oscah post.

Hmm, I wonder if the cows at FF read that comment posted from the lady from Shawnee about Aniston NOT being brought home to MO. And those fat flucks contacted the tabs to make up some story. You know, those Fat Flucks know the Pitt family tree going back to the 1700s and make up their voodoo stories to Brad and Angie’s ancestries.

Angie and Brad own those Fat Flucks 24/7. (And I’m sure Bill or Jane wouldn’t let Grandma stay in substandard nursing, btw—what is Betty’s problem with helping Grandma?)

if ss had sent angie flowers you can bet she would have mentioned it in all her 1000 wonderbust intervews so she could have been seen as a benevolent person.

“A couple of years ago, [Brad Pitt] really nailed me. He did one of those shows and they asked him when he was going to marry Angie [Angelina Jolie], and he said, ‘I’ll marry when George can legally marry [a man].’” He laughs. “He really got me badly, something I have had to deal with the past few years. But I could give a ****. I have to live in the world that I care about and that’s all that matters.”

George didn’t really mean for that to come out he was campaigning and their agent has them doing a little damage control

Get ready Philipines…Moneyball headed your way March 7… rezirb.com/2012/02/the-ot…

http://rezirb.com/2012/02/the-other-guys-of-moneyball/

Kit and Billy Bush from Access Hollywood continues to try to make something about the leg and keep getting slapped down. Yesterday he asked D Trump about the leg, Donald answered my saying, “Angelina is a Beautiful Woman”. Today Kit asked Danny Devito what he thought about Angie’s leg, DV answered, “I like her leg, Angelina has nice legs.”
When are they going to get over their obsession about her leg. The woman has great legs. The singer Adam Levine from the Voice girlfriend was practically naked showing her left leg at an award show last week and no one cared, guess what he brought a picture to show BB yesterday of her leg and no one cared. Al girlfriend’s dress cut out a quarter of the skirt, just to show the leg, still no one cared. Goes to show the power of the Jolie.

PT how much do you want to bet that all the stupid US tabloids will be after that Aunty & invading that nursing home now that they have that photo for proof. I would have discounted this as any other tabloid made-up story but that photo is just too personal, includes the kids cousins too.

@ Rose #55 I think these morons are trying to get other celebrities to bad mouth Angie but have you noticed no celebrity worth their salt has said anything negative concerning Angie’s legs. And by celebrities, Botox JR, fithy Handler, Dr. Devil & ugly Behar don’t count as celebrities. Angie is respected and regarded highly. As Ann Curry said imitation is the best…. even pin thin Kelly Ripa was gushing about Angie. Billy Bush just wanted to boost SS ego by having Donald bitchslap Angie but i think old Donald discovered what every Angie fan knows, that she is an incredible human being.

per wonderbombniston….ya all are narrow minded.heheheh.

Billy Beane

The A’s general manager sat in the fourth row at the Oscars, so close that he told the usher that there must have been a mistake. Beane found himself in front of Bo Derek, and near Gwyneth Paltrow, whom he met. Beane, there because of six nominations for “Moneyball,” said that Brad Pitt’s partner, Angelina Jolie, came over to take a photo with Beane’s daughter, Casey, and he took a photo with Tim Tebow. “I was amazed at how gracious everyone was,” he said. He never shook the feeling of being in a different world, though. “It was a little like going to a high-school party that’s not your party,” he said.

Angie always wins……why the trolls keep smashing their square heads against their monitors is beyond me……everyone wants to be right some of the time, but these bishes have even set that bar lower than whale shite.

They are so attuned to being in the ‘loser’ strata of life, they don’t know what ‘winning’ feels like. That’s why they are able to keep their hate campign going even though they continually get bish slapped back on their lard asses.

They are such masochists they can keep losing on a daily, yearly, monthly and soon to be ‘decade’ basis……..is this a pathology or what???

@#57, well said. Even a blind person can see Angie has great legs, long and lean. Some of these women would give up their first born to have her legs.

http://celebs.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981151812

LOL @ CoCo…sorta looks like a how Jen would look without all the fluff, and CoCo is a name associated with her. Is that you Jen? Trying to get rid of Stumpy now that he has served his purpose (and failed), same old Jen.

I dont understand how so many people cant see that the leg was intentional to make people laugh. Angie totally did it on purpose and set the guy up for the joke on stage. It was meant to be a slap in the face to Ticky– cuz Angie can entertain and get laughs on the small screen as well as the big screen. Her pose was way too exxagerated to be taken seriously. It was obvious that it was done on purpose both on the red carpet and on stage. You all should look up John Voight’s comment on it when he was at the Vanity Fair party. I think that everyone was so used to Angie being serious due to the subject matter of her film that they didnt expect her to be silly. It went with the entire theme of the awards show as well- it was a light-hearted night. Thats why all the presenters were being funny (Cameron and JLo sticking their butts out, Paltrow’s lame skit, etc.).

This needs to be repeated @ 03/01/2012 at 12:41 pm

To Jennifer,
Since you are not that bright, let me explain the hidden meaning behind my leg at the oscars.
The difference between me and you is that i do not have to try to be sexy. I know this, you know this and everyone in the world knows this. I do not have to pose naked or try so hard like you do. All i have to do is flash my right leg and the media goes nuts. You constantly pose naked and walk around with hard nipples and nobody cares. With the flash of one leg i started a storm. And thats all i had to do. Show my right leg. My right leg gets more attention than your entire body of work (pun intended).
And have you read how everyone is saying that i was trying so hard to be sexy? Well i was mimicking you. Come on now- we both know that i dont have to try hard at that at all! Because i am naturally a sexbomb. It is called “irony”. look it up in the dictionary.
The oscars was my night to have fun and celebrate the end of your career. You are a sad and pathetic hasbeen and deserve whats coming to you for effing with my family.
Another ironic thing– your comedy bombed and my comedy totally worked.
Tongue-in-cheek, baby.

Sincerely,
Angelina Jolie Pitt

@This needs to be repeated: she most certainly wouldn’t add Pitt to her name. Eww.

She will NEVER marry Pitt. I putt money on that cause that’s a sure bet. No losing that one. NEVER!

Angelina’s last thread got more than 1000 posts within 2 days.

Billy Beane went to the Oscars and hung out with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and … Tim Tebow

Aaron Gleeman

Mar 1, 2012, 12:51 PM EST

It was a surprise to see Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti at the Oscars, sitting right behind Michelle Williams, but A’s general manager Billy Beane showing up in support of “Moneyball” was certainly to be expected.

Beane told Jane Lee of MLB.com that he was shocked to find that his seats were in the fourth row, near Gwyneth Paltrow and Bo Derek, which presumably means they were located in some sort of weird time warp.

“Moneyball” got shutout in all six of its nominated categories, but Beane, his wife, and his daughter–who’s also portrayed in the movie–”had a great time” and hung out afterward with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Oh, and he also took a picture with Tim Tebow.

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

Hi Candi. While I agree with much of your post, I have to strongly disagree with the comment above. Angie is way above that type of juvenile behavior. That’s something Ticky & CH would do. Angelina probably has no idea what Ticky is doing or even that she had a movie out that bombed. And, if she did, she wouldn’t publicly try to humiliate her. She is just too classy for that. And I’m absolutely sure Ticky is a nonentity in the world of the Jolie-Pitts.

Beane, family enjoy Oscars experience

PHOENIX — Billy Beane was slightly confused when he and his family were brought to their seats at Hollywood’s Kodak Theater for the Academy Awards on Sunday.

“We get to the fourth row,” the A’s general manager said, “and I say to the usher, ‘Are you sure these are our seats?’”

The short version of the usher’s response: Yes.

And though Beane watched “Moneyball” — the film inspired by Michael Lewis’ book about the A’s 2002 season — go winless in six nominations, he was simply happy to be part of such a prominent event, while sitting close by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Bo Derek.

“It was great,” said Beane, who brought along wife Tara and daughter Casey. “From the start, everyone involved with it, from Sony to the actors to the directors, everyone was absolutely fantastic, very unpretentious, and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything. It was fun. We had a great time.”

At one point in the night, Beane and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow were brought together for a picture. Casey posed for a few with Brad Pitt, nominated for a “Best Actor” Oscar for his portrayal of Beane, and even posed with Angelina Jolie, per her own request.

“Angelina said, ‘I want a picture with Casey,’ which was really sweet,” Beane said. “She was just incredibly gracious.”

Beane’s night concluded at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, which is always attended by stars of all stature.

“It’s like going to a high school party, but it’s not your party,” he said.

The U.S. tabs will probably pick up this story but they aren’t going to OK. They’ll just make up something like they always do. “Facts.” “truth” and “research” are dirty words to them. Why ask questions when you can just write whatever the hell you want? In stead it will be written up as “there have been reports…” or “British newspers”. They don’t even need to say where there reports were…just that there were. It’s not like their readers give a crap about sources or truth or honesty.

@from JJB:
I hope we will see the pictures of Brad, Angie and Billy Beane family.

Since I am writing this from Sarajevo let me just say that before I was a fan of Angie and Brad, but since Angie filmed this movie about horrible war that was happening here, and since she and Brad were here I am trully in love with them! That movie is huge huge hit here and in Croatia where also was this war and people felt that Angelina really made an incredible movie and thouched us deeply.

And that is way I am huge fan!

Also I would like to say something about this already boring story about Angelina’s Oscar leg – I hope American people would not offend if I say that this Oscar show was so BORING and I was only watching the best of that show (because of time difference here was night when that show was live) and thank God on Angelina and her leg to make that show little bit interesting :) Billy Cristal is great actor but very boring host and I don’t know a person that didn’t think that Angelina actually made that boring show interesting.

Also I would like to say that guy that was “mocking” Angelina, I think he was only being funny and Angelina is amazing I loved how she wasn’t angry on him or anything else, she just laughed because she understands what joke is. Lots of people from here that meet her and Brad during Sarajevo premiere said to the press that Angelina and Brad are very lovely, nice and funny people.

I think we should be honest and say that any other actress in Angelina’s place during that Oscar show would create a pity party because someone mocked them, and yes, that includes J. Aniston. We would be reading how she felt awful, how people were mean and she was just being funny and so on – but not Angelina, she made a joke, she felt sexy and she had fun about it without calling names in press the day after.

That is way I like Angelina, she knows this goes with her job, and she never has pity parties in press, and last couple of years she really was accused for everything, and yet she just goes on and does what ever she wants with her life – now that is inspiration!

Sorry for bad english and kisses!!

A's Leg What Would Liz Taylor @ 03/01/2012 at 1:54 pm

Angelina Jolie’s leg: What would Elizabeth Taylor do?

But, hey, she had people talking, the way that movie stars used to. With her strut on the Oscar stage, Jolie brought to mind Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn, two stars who always brought a lot of oomph to Oscar night.
___
Was Angelina too thin? No thinner than Audrey, perhaps the greatest style setter in Oscar history.
___
Was Angelina too bawdy? She’d have a long way to go to match Elizabeth Taylor, who brought playful good humor to the Oscars with her plunging gowns, her jewels, her dark tans and her bawdy laugh. And who can forget Liz’s being ruffled after a streaker invaded the Oscars? Movie legend Taylor would have loved Jolie’s pose.

Movie stars are supposed to make an impression. Angelina Jolie did. Jim Rash and his fellow “Descendants” writers adopted the Jolie stance on the Oscar stage after she presented them their awards. Backstage at the Oscars, “Community” actor Rash said he wasn’t ridiculing Jolie. “I just saw her pose and I thought, ‘You know what? We have exactly the same legs,’ ” Rash joked. “And I wanted to show everyone what it meant. It was a loving tribute.” Jolie supplied another Oscar moment to remember. If you hold on to them, you’ll overlook how boring the show can be. Plea to Oscar: Please make sure Jolie returns.

Good night to all fans!
Four days later still talking about Angie’s leg, the power of Jolie!
Tomorrow ITLOBAH opens in Spain, I can not wait to see it …

To Jennifer,
Since you are not that bright, let me explain the hidden meaning behind my leg at the oscars.
The difference between me and you is that i do not have to try to be sexy. I know this, you know this and everyone in the world knows this. I do not have to pose naked or try so hard like you do. All i have to do is flash my right leg and the media goes nuts. You constantly pose naked and walk around with hard nipples and nobody cares. With the flash of one leg i started a storm. And thats all i had to do. Show my right leg. My right leg gets more attention than your entire body of work (pun intended).
And have you read how everyone is saying that i was trying so hard to be sexy? Well i was mimicking you. Come on now- we both know that i dont have to try hard at that at all! Because i am naturally a sexbomb. It is called “irony”. look it up in the dictionary.
The oscars was my night to have fun and celebrate the end of your career. You are a sad and pathetic hasbeen and deserve whats coming to you for effing with my family.
Another ironic thing– your comedy bombed and my comedy totally worked.
Tongue-in-cheek, baby.

Sincerely,
Angelina Jolie Pitt
I just read this i just had to repost.

Fans, guess. Who is on The cover of Vanity Fair Oscars cover? Brad and Angie. See JJB, page 214. Haters to the left.

“I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face.

The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody’s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.’”

@PT, Do you believe SS send flowers to Angie? If she did and I was Angie I would deep six it. She would have to put out a full page apology to Angie in the Hollywood press before I would accept anything from that narcissist, delusional B. Would never trust her and her circle of evil hens.

But if the ho doesn’t think children will make her happy why the hell did she say she always wanted children. She would never give up the experience. I am and I will.

Aisha comes in to her thread and puts up the good stuff.
.
Am LMAO over the Maniston sends Angelina flowers bit, as you do know what the purpose of that will be, don’t you?? It’s a plant and denial of course. Plant the fake item to get people thinking you’ve finally, FINALLY matured enough past your ‘blatant famewh*ring coattail riding faux catfight instigating angelina demonizing riding of the coattails,’ into a normal human being…only to issue a DENIAL of the item your power PR flack PLANTED in the first place in 5…4…3…2… – that way, it makes your nasty jealous hateful hens see that all is still right in their hateful manufactured triangle world….and that Maniston remains an embittered jealous obsessed hater of Angelina. Seriously, watch this space…keep checking back at gossip cop. If the story gains legs, and gets reported at more than 3-4 major outlets/blogs/entertainment news sites, etc., then Huvane will quickly issue a simple, ‘it’s not true.’ which of course will be a sign for Maniston’s mad cows to keep on hating Angelina.
.
Oh, and I absolutely positively believe Maniston and baldy the poplocking old man could be toast already…I personally give it two months or 8 weeks on the outside. Huvaniston may not want to be so blatantly a famewh*re after she’s been called out so many times before for her tricks…the real deal is, Theroux is a nobody, only now, he’s a nobody deemed by the box office. She got the message too loud and clear: no one cares about her, no one cares about her with him . He’s no John maeterlinck, he’s no Vince Vaughn, he’s not even Paul Sculfor, the brad Pitt lookalike who went on to can Diaz from manny, No one thinks he’s cool, no one thinks he’s edgy (hell, he’s with her after all how edgy could he be, lololol). – for that, Justine must hit the bricks. He was already a liability in that people were calling her a homewrecker. Now he’s double that, because the public doesn’t think him, cool, famous or hot. It’s over or will be by the spring. I personally think its unfortunate. I want them to be the real deal, as ‘real’ as she can get anyway. It would finally get her off brad and Angie’s back for once and for all. But personally, I don’t think she has it in her to be with a non famous person that can’t stroke her ego, and garner publicity, image wise. They’re dunzo.

You're Welcome @ 03/01/2012 at 3:31 pm

Jimmy Fallon provided this gem from his show:
___
The ratings for the Oscars were up 4 percent from last year. Or as Angelina Jolie’s leg put it, “you’re welcome”.

Remember, Huvane 101:
.
Step 1: Plant a positive item that makes it seem like ‘the feud and triangle,’ are over, and that Maniston has ‘forgiven’ Angelina.
.
Step 2: THEN….rush over to Gossipcop and elsewhere, denying the item that you yourself manufactured and planted, making it known and sending a sign with your press release denial, that NO, you don’t feel nice towards Angelina.

Hateful jen hens breathe sigh of relief.

Fvck no. No way, now how. In order to believe it I’d have to believe that Brad was thinking about Ticky…which I doubt he does unless someone calls him up and says, “Get a load of Jen’s current publicity stunt, Brad…” Or someone called him up and said, “Hey Brad…ya gotta see this hot mess that Jen directed…all 17 minutes of it!” And Brad watched and then sent Ticky a DVD of ITLOBAH with a note saying, “Give it up, Jen. Your directings almost as bad as your acting. Now what this dvd of my baby’s directorial debut. Here’s a clue: Go online and Google ‘Bosnian War’…and recognize, beeyotch, recognize!”

http://www.thewrap.com/media/article/brad-pitt-joins-george-clooney-dustin-lance-blacks-prop-8-play-35873

Frequent collaborators Brad Pitt and George Clooney will be working together again — this time on stage.

Pitt has signed onto the cast for the West Coast premiere reading of the Dustin Lance Black play “8,” based on the battle to overturn the controversial Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California.

Pitt joins a cast that already includes Clooney and Martin Sheen. He will play U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who in August 2010 ruled that Prop 8, which was approved by California voters in 2008, was unconstitutional. (The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Walker’s ruling last month; the case is expected to travel to the U.S. Supreme Court.)

Clooney and Sheen will play attorneys David Boies and Theodore B. Olson, who served as the plaintiffs’ co-counsel in the case that overturned Prop 8.

“8″ — which was written by “Milk” and “J. Edgar” screenwriter Black based on trial transcripts and first-hand courtroom observations — had its world premiere in September of 2011 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York.

The West Coast premiere reading will be directed by Rob Reiner, and will take place on Saturday at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. “X-Men” director Bryan Singer is the night’s supporting sponsor, with proceeds from the benefit going to the continued fight for federal marriage equality.

Jane Lynch, Mattthew Morrison, Chris Colfer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Bacon and George Takei are also among the cast for Saturday’s reading.

The performance will be live-streamed beginning with pre-show coverage at 7:30 PST at the American Foundation for Equal Right’s YouTube channel.

Angelina Jolie’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey”
02/13/12

By Allyson Neville-Morgan

Angelina Jolie’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey” is an important reminder that the international community can’t forgo its responsibility to respond to genocide.

Angelina Jolie’s writing and directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” snubbed by the Oscars and screened in very few U.S. theaters, isn’t generating the blockbuster actress’s usual buzz. It deserves better.

“Blood and Honey” hinges on a personal relationship between a man and woman from opposing sides of the Bosnia war in the 1990s. Even before filming began, Bosnian women’s groups expressed outrage about the possible portrayal of a romance between a perpetrator and victim. They accused Jolie, a well-established global humanitarian advocate, of exploiting the war.

The accusations were “very painful, especially that women would think that I would not honor them properly,” Jolie has said.

Graced with remarkable acting by actors from the region speaking in their native languages, this is no love story. It merely uses the bond between the two main characters to expose the truths of a complicated conflict. Jolie’s ability to unearth difficult stories buried below the public consciousness is what makes “Blood and Honey” so compelling.

The film offers a glimpse of the war and atrocities that took place in the former Yugoslavia. It bears important lessons for the tragedies now unfolding in places like Sudan and Syria.

Similar to “Hotel Rwanda,” which depicted the 1994 African genocide, “Blood and Honey” demonstrates why documenting and acknowledging atrocities just isn’t enough. Actions by individuals and the global community are critical.

One of the central characters, Danijel — a Serbian soldier and the son of one of the Serbian generals — questions his father about the execution of civilians and the use of rape as a weapon of war, bringing these key themes to life. Downplaying Danijel’s concerns about how the international community might react, his father responds that the world will see, but no one will care enough to do anything.

This proved partially true. Despite the deployment of United Nations troops during the conflict, it wasn’t until much later that Washington and other players took more robust actions. Even then, it was very much too little, too late. The end result in Bosnia was the death of nearly 100,000 people.

The reluctance to launch early and decisive responses to such situations is a challenge that the international community still struggles to overcome, raising questions about how little has changed over the two decades that have passed since the horrors in Bosnia.

What distinguishes “Blood and Honey” from similar films is its focus on sexual and gender-based violence. The other main character, Ajla, is a Bosnian Muslim woman held captive by Danijel and his men. Claiming to care deeply for Ajla, Danijel manages to save her from the repeated rapes suffered by the other women with whom she’s imprisoned. However, she’s still terrorized and subjected to dehumanizing treatment throughout the movie.

While Ajla’s voice is limited throughout the movie, we’re given insight into Danijel’s thinking. It’s a challenging look at a man who’s conflicted, but ultimately complicit in crimes against humanity. His story exposes how easy it can be to make the wrong decisions when meager justifications win over one’s conscience.

As the film notes in a postscript, the mass rape that occurred during the Bosnian war would later mark the first time that rape was considered a crime against humanity.

Today, in places like Darfur, Burma, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, women still bear the brunt of atrocities in the form of sexual and gender-based violence. Far too often, these stories remain untold and unaddressed, further marginalizing these victims.

The Bosnian war set the stage for increased opportunities for justice and accountability, but contemporary crimes still fail to generate the attention and response that is needed.

One of the most profound moments of the film occurs when, at one point during an intimate conversation with Ajla, Danijel justifies the actions of the Serbian forces as not murder, but “politics.” This must be our call to do more.

Atrocities aren’t about politics. Relying on a refrain about complicated historic grievances between groups, inconvenient timing, or just sticking one’s head in the sand are dangerous justifications to do nothing.

This op-ed was originally posted on OtherWords, a project of the Institute for Policy Studies.

You could be sued for LIBEL! And if anyone reports you to Angelina’s lawyers I hope you are sued for libel!
.
How dare you use Angelina’s name so disrespectfully and without regard to the kind of woman Angelina is?
.
Stupid Aniston pays her PR people big bucks to have her name attached to Angelina in any way she can. And here you are doing what she is willing to pay for for free!
.
You are doing a great disservice to Angelina to think she would ever need to bring herself down so low as to reach Aniston’s level.
.
This is the kind of stupidity the Tabloids engage in to keep the fake triangle going and here you are a fan doing their dirty work for them.

I cal “Bulls#!t” on the sending flowers rumor. It’s just another ploy by Aniston/Huvane to cover up Aniston’s movie bomb and deflect the Angie Leg saga, hoping this little gem will fuel the fire forJjen that she some forgiving vessel after darn near 8 years!

Brad has no reason, absolutely no reason to send Angelina’s movie to her (not even for bragging because that’s not his style). For what???? Like she is een interested in history or cares. Lies to keep the triangle going.

Since the trolls are thumbing down great JP videos I just posted, maybe time to post their idols HUGE BOMB news again!

http://youtu.be/cEu_qSJTnZk

About Anuston sending Angie flowers, I don’t believe she sent her flowers but I believe she has secretly watched Angie’s movie
( ITLOBAH ) many times and have copies of the DVD for replays and to study Angie’s techniques on how to direct a great movie. She is obsessed with Angie and envies her success and talent. She is also delusional, she thinks she can have Angie’s talent and produce movies like Angie. She is just too dumb to realise that she can never be as good as Angie no matter how much she stalks, coattails and watches every move or study her techniques, after more than 20yrs in the rom-com business, she still BOMBS big time at rom-coms. To be a successful producer like Angie requires brain, talent, thinking and imagination, all the things she lacks.

Fans please don’t let the trolls thumb down those great videos. They are ALL positive about Angie and Brad!

I know the Leg phenomenon is old news, but just wanted to add a little bit more. I think Angie and the other presenters were probably asked by the producer to liven up the show. All the presenters did little skits, even JLopez and CDiaz showcased their behinds in a jesting sort of way. Now that seemed odd to me. But it failed to excite anyone. But Angie came out and the audience sort conveyed a sort of anticipation as she walked out. The slit in the dress showed her legs as she walked out. The audience responded to her. The excitement was in the air. Then when she did this pose, you knew she was just hamming it up. That’s obvious. The winners of the award got it and were inspired to strike a similar pose. It was all in jest. After having to promote such a serious and heavy movie like ITLOBAH, I think Angie was just enjoying a carefree moment and only Angie can get a reaction like that. She is an icon. And I think men like long legs.

That is why I call her The Fraud. She demonstrates no real personality of her own, no real interests of her own, she has no clue WHO she really is and no real talent except “being fckable to try and get herself ahead in Hollywood” (her words not mine).
.
She is trying desperately to have her PR bulldog open doors for her, but, thanks to her lack of talent, his job is becoming harder and harder.
.

She is fast becoming a non-entity because a whole new generation is emerging who NEVER heard of her, never knew she was once married to Brad Pitt, and could not care less about her one way or the other, even though her show is in syndication.
.
Consequently, it is imperative she continue to attach herself to Brad and Angelina in any way she can. Otherwise, nobody would know she had ever existed or even exists now.

i seriously doubt x sent flowers to angelina. i would only believe it if brad or angelina said so outright.

I also think it should auction the dress angie I think I could help contribute.
I’ll tell you something personal idol because I am as a person and profeccional angie.
My friends and I contributed to those children who do not have to eat and wear.
I defend my idol because I see it as one of those women who are not just around the corner.
I defend that talk crap about it angie is skinny hepburm audrey was thin. many women who do something for the rest are slim women who may be left at home our arms crossed, enjoying the comforts.

I publish several times that I have expressed fear if I wrong.
all I can say I am a proud fan of angelina jolie

So THE dress was custom made for Angie??? Now that is star power…..Versace must be over the frikkin’ moon over the exposure…..pun intended, they got.

Honestly, since the divorce and the birth of Shi, I doubt Ticky has had a worse few days. She is shat on by the movie going public and Angie is hoisted up another level in the stratosphere where she resides.

I”m sure Stephanie, the flack, is developing ulcers as we speak. All his devious methodology and THIS. And one commentator saying that Angie is the best publicist in HW. Truly, is there anything this woman can’t do?

bravo anjie,keep stickin those gorgeous legz of yours,baby.

Looking forward to OSCAR 2013. I hope Angie will show her left leg this time. More fun for Angie.

I think Huvane would give both his legs to have her as his client. :)

I know the Leg phenomenon is old news, but just wanted to add a little bit more. I think Angie and the other presenters were probably asked by the producer to liven up the show.

Brian Grazer was asked about that and he said no, he didn’t ask her to do it but wished he’d thought of it or thought it was great. Something like that. There was photo of Angie reading something just as she went out on stage and it was probably the lead-in to announcing the nominees. I think she just decided to vamp it up a bit based on the lines she’d been given. If anyone else had done it it wouldn’t have been a big deal. It’s almost 72 hours later and I’m STILL trying to figure out what the big deal was…

If Ticky had sent flowers to Angie then the bomb squad would have been too busy to go to Rush Limbaugh’s house because the first thing security would have done was call the cops, “We need the bobm squad here, ASAP! That crazy Fattened Tick biitch sent Angelina Jolie a flower-bomb!” And the 911 operation would say, “AGAIN? Fvck…that’s the 9th one since the awards season started! Look at it this way – a flower bomb is better than a Wanderbust DVD bomb…”

Life is funny, when Brad was married to Ticky, he said he wanted 6 or 7 kids, Ticky said he would be lucky if he got 2, and we know how that turned out.
At one stage she said she wanted to be a young MOM, but now at 43/44 she is changing her story after lying for 14 yrs.
As PT said, if Ticky’s mouth is moving, she is lying, the few fans that still believe her are not paying to see her playing Racheal in every role.
She is going to be supporting Squiggy for a lot of years, he was not getting work before this movie TANKED, it’s not going to get better. BreakDancing was so eighties, even if it came back in vogue, he will be fifty.

Some of you are so lame and I feel bad for you when she dumps him. Vamp Angie is back and I’ve got a feeling the leg is just the beginning of her fun.

Some women can pull of the ultra thin look, Angelina is not one of them. Angelina is tall and big boned so it looks bad on her. Whether she’s anorexic or not she doesn’t look good at that size. She looked best when she was promoting Alexander and shark tale. I won’t say anything else because maybe she has a medical condition that prevents her from gaining weight.

# 147 PT, thank you for the laughs, that was funny. I’m sure Angie won’t go near the flowers or let her kids near them. We know the evil ex will like to harm those kids since she has none of hers.

Even she says she doesn’t like being skinny and she wishes she had a magic wand to give her more weight.

I don’t think we will ever see Angelina the way she was at her hottest. Time to just accept it. Skinny and kind of harsh is what we have left of the smoking hot Angelina. I still think she’s a pretty person on the inside and I like her as an actress. I always look forward to her movies.

hypocrite manny @ 03/01/2012 at 9:30 pm

yeah- granny manny is letting the few “fans” she has left down gently- I’ve always thought it was best that someone as nasty and narcissistic as manny has proven herself to be NOT have kids. Besides, she says that she cries over gray hair- having kids is FAR MORE traumatic than having gray hair! Write up fr other site:

Jennifer Aniston couldn’t be more right. Babies don’t equal happiness. What really equals happiness is a backyard pool full of Grey Goose (which Aniston has), a supple coat of many leathers (which Aniston has, it’s called her skin) and zillions of dollars from playing herself in sh*t movie after sh*t movie.

I bet it took you the last 4 days come up with that drivel. Go back to picking your nose. It’s obvious that thinking just ain’t your thang…

JP Oscar videos @ 03/01/2012 at 9:54 pm

Hahaha, IF the mentally challenged are so stupid for not realizing gorgeous AJ was just having fun… Basically having fun is what these RC shows are about and making BORING Oscars FUN! Ang STOLE the Oscars…..period!

Poor losers, the pathetic losers are still losers!

So what do the mentally challenged trolls say about Emma? (mind you I like her). Now what was Emma was ackward?

www//youtu.be/4MbJR6R8

Trolls are so stupid. Looks change, how you look 5 – 10yrs ago is not how you will look today, especially when you’ve had kids. it’s called growing up and maturing. Even Anuston has aged and she hasn’t even given birth to children. Trolls only talk about looks and vanity, this is why you have women like Demi Moore losing perspectives and wanting to stay young for ever, not acting their age and Anuston crying over a single gray hair at 45 and dressing like teenagers. You should all take a look at yourselves and pull out one of your pics taken 10yrs ago and you’ll see you too have changed. Angie is not the only person to change. She is still incredibly stunning, she just doesn’t want to spend 8hrs a day doing yoga, exercising and injecting botox. She has 6 young kids to look after and a hubby, a thriving career and her humanitarian commitment. You’re all jealous of Angie cos your lives are empty, you’ve all lost touch of what is more important in life cos you worry more about vanity and you let life pass you by instead of living life to the fullest.

I LOVE THIS MAN.
