    she’s 36 & will be 37 in June. Hardly almost 40.
    But, 40 is a very sexy age, ask my husband
    One usually says almost 40 circa one year prior.

    but, who cares? Angie will be ravishing at 68.
    It’s her inner beauty that shines at any age.
    That she has oodles of.

    btw..did you guys read about Women of the World?
    What a wonderful Summit.
    I bow to all the women.
    These are the GIANTS of the planet.
    The doctor Angie spoke about & her 2 Dr. daughters are ah-mazing!
    I hope she gets the Nobel Peace Prize.
    What a saint.
    I was thrilled to see Angie speak about her. Now, I am in the know.
    Angie rolls with the smartest, most succseful people on this planet.
    oh, watch the MIR Gala on the 10th & please donate anything you can.
    It is an honorable honest Charity.Brad put up 5 mil of his own $ to start. Ellen is very involved too.
    Even $10 helps. Or buy a cool T shirt or hat.
    wear MIR with pride, you show the morons you help humans in need.
    In the US. (even if you are not in the US, sustainable housing will go global Brad says)

    Shut up you old obvious bittchy old crone of a fan of Maniston and garbage handler, what kind of fcking fan of Angie’s comes on her thread and starts yapping about not being able to wait til an actress’s turns 40 ( in 3 years time!!)…go fck yourself you piece of sh hit, if you’re a fan I’m Kate Middleton. Plus the fact you don’t think anyone can use the back button and see you responded to some illiterate troll hater who garbled out some hate about Jolie at 40, and you chime in, in response but in perfect English — when the truth is both posts are your own, you dumbass.
    Now fck off. Flapping your gums about your supposed fav actress turning 40 is tantamount to being a fan of maniston’s and publicly celebrating her perimenopause, and throwing her a hot flash party.
    go fck yourself and leave the beautiful girl alone, loser. I swear, you’d think you dumb ff bishes would be happy now that Maniston has a bought and paid for shrimpy noname dck, even if it has been up terry Richardsons taint….but nooooooo, you gotta come on here and try to fck with a real celebration of a real movie star. May karma fck you up the asss with Justine theroux’s high heeled platforms.

    Yass Says:

    @Brenda: Wow so 37 is not almost 40? Ok, idiot. Round it off. Some of you are so hard headed. Almost 40. Almost 40. Almost 40. 3 more years and she’s 40. Ugh. Lmao

  4. 54
    Yass Says:

    @CLINIQUA: wow and you claim to be an ange fan? Not with the rude tude, lady. I’m darn sure you are older than I am but you come off as immature and coocoo. Get a reality check, you are not Angie and you never will be. You eill not even be her maid or dishwasher. You are not fit enough to clean Angie’s loubitin heels. You see, Angie has something called class and maturity and she is not afraid of a number 40 . You dear coocoo nut will never have class, just a whole lot of assss.

    You are so RIGHT! The name of the movie is MALEFICENT!
    Let the teen play the teen. Too many older actresses think they can play these young roles and they do not look right on screen.

    Emma Says:

    Elle will be 15 in April. The princess in the story is awakened by the prince when she is 16 . . . so I would say that yes, she is exactly the right age. Jared has her age wrong.

  8. 58
    Emma Says:

    Sorry, Elle will be 14 in April, my apologies. Still, I think she’s the perfect age to play the Princess since she is 15 in the story before she is put to sleep on her 16th birthday, at least I THINK that’s how it goes ; )

    lylian Says:

    the average age of menarche for girls these days is 11. I was told thats because of all the hormones used in meat these days. So, yes, elle at 14 is probably physically equivalent to a 16 year old girl several generations ago, and thus, quite perfect for the role.

    The problem is – she’s no “beauty”…which kind of makes the entire premise of Maleficent’s jealousy kind of hard to believe. Any resemblence that remark has to Ticky’s fugness in relation to Angie’s drop-dead gorgeousness is merely a coincidence…

  11. 61
    Brenda Says:


    I’m an idiot? huh?
    You are a clueless fck then.
    I never heard of referring to anyone at age 36 to be almost 40 LMAO
    So, that makes Chinnifer almost 47.
    OK..I see your logic bwahaha.

    so, Maddox Jolie-Pitt is almost 15.Meryl Streep is almost 70.

    Don’t you see you are posting hogwash logic?

    Dude, even IF Angie would be wth?
    People in general do not like to rush their ages. Got 4 yrs or so to enjoy till.
    I now believe you were mean & I do not feel sorry for you.

    Cliniqua is just p-od at your passive agressive sneaky post.
    And..she is a highly intelligent, first class woman.She sees through BS like a fox. In fact, we all do.She gets heated & rightly so because she knows your act, man.
    Please, do not insult her OR calling me an idiot & whatever you do in your hundred fake name.
    I never did anything to you.
    Only my man can joke & call me an idiot. Sexy idiot. LMAO

    Now, if you are not an Angie fly away from Angie thread.
    Go to Chinny’s thread.
    oh wait…there’s no action there.
    Even her “fans” din’t go & see her last 3 flops.
    Wanderbust was her worst experts say.
    She is very lucky the Oscars was on Sunday, so not much coverage on Monday in the media about another flop.
    Instead, her over paid puppets,planted, “oh, I’m so happy”, “I prefer L.A. to NY” bla bla..(sad spook she is indeed as quoted in a reputable mag)
    and ridiculous things that they try so hard to make her sound relevant.
    When in reality, she only has low IQ irrelevant bla bla to say.

    I can go on, but why? lol..I’m almost 40 so time is ticking. LOL

    reposting this wonderful gem from PT. I hope you don’t mind PT. This is like an ammunition for the troll paid by Huvane who keeps on telling lies about Angelina.

    # 318 an oldie @ 03/07/2012 at 11:43 am
    RW is almost as full of caca as Ticky is but at least she can get a movie green lighted on her name. Ticky can’t get anything financed then takes crappy projects that are already financed and turns them in to a red numbers on the balance sheet. Which…leads me to my “weekend project”…
    Soooooooo…when What-a-bust was bombing I got to think about those 2 flicks that Ticky and Huvsy leaked to Deadline last month, which is basically her attempt to drum up an offer for a movie that’s already financed. No takers so far so that might have backfired on her. But, what it did do was make the wonder how many projects Ticky has “announced” or been “attached” or boasted about that have never seen the light of day or that went to other actresses for various reasons.
    Every actor has projects that don’t work out and never make it to production for tons of reasons. That’s just how the business is. There are probably thousands of scripts floating around Hollywood that have been optioned by someone and never get made. However, sometimes an actor just plain sucks and is like a black hole where scripts go to die – that’s Ticky.
    When I embarked on this little project I expected to do about 30 mintues of Googling and wind up with a list of 10 or so movies. Er…it didn’t quite work out that way. Over the course of a couple of days I’ve spent about 6 hours reading through articles and LMAO. Y’all are not going to believe how many projects Ticky has tried to get off the ground over the years. I ended up finding stuff going all the way back to 1998.
    As you read through this list look at the pattern that emerges –
    - Before Brad…a handful of projects she produced or tried to get financed.
    - With Brad…a whole bunch of projects were acquired their 2 production companies with Ticky claiming the intent was to, “…lay track for what happens after ‘Friends,’ and I know well that films like ‘The Good Girl’ are very hard to come by.” The intent of the company wasn’t solely to proved Ticky with post-Friends projects. That was HER objective but not the 2 Brads’. Because she had the 2 Brads backing Plan B Ticky and Kristin Hahn were able to get a lot of scripts that she otherwise wouldn’t have had a shot at. Also, re: the “2 production companies” – at first it was the 2 of them together with Kristin Hahn but Hahn was NOT a partner. Then they partnered with Brad Grey and formed Plan B. (Which, BTW, I found the original announcement of the company that states very clearly that Brad and Brad Grey were “50/50 partners” with Ticky coming on board as an “equity partner” due to the fact that she and Brad had formed a partnership between them and added Kristin Hahn. There was a company, but it never had offices and was abandoned when Brad Grey approached BRAD to form Plan B. Kristin Hahn who claimed to have started Plan B with Ticky was part of the company that Brad and Ticky had and moved to Plan B as a producer and was NEVER a partner in either venture.)
    - Post-dumping – Initially Ticky was blanked, then she gradually started to acquire script rights and eventually formed Echo Films with Hahn in 2008. Also, remember that there are projects that I’ll never be able to find (unless someone startings blabbing) because she auditioned for movies and got turned down. The nitwit admitted that in an interview, so God knows how many auditions she went on and didn’t get the job.
    Okay…that’s background…now here’s the list of projects that I found. These are all projects she was planning to either star in or produce and does not include the handful of films that she did make. These are things she tried to get financing for and hasn’t been able to squeeze a dime out of anyone to make a wish a reality. As you read the list count up all the projects that actually saw the light of day WITH TICKY, without Ticky and those sucked into that black vortex known as Box Office Poison Tickytown…
    - Animal Husbandry (retitled Someone Like You, released in 2001 with Ashley Judd & Hugh Hunkman…er…sorry…Jackman)
    - Something Wicked
    - The Virgin Mary (acting + producting)
    - Waking Up In Reno (she wanted to co-star with Brad…who eventually nixed the idea and signed on to do The Mexican instead. At the time Fincher was slated to direct but later dropped out. This movie was being directed by James Gray and producted by…drum roll please…Billy Boob Thornton. Like I said…Brad has known BBT for a long time.)
    - I Am Sam (the studio wanted to hire Ticky and Brendan Fraser, the writer said, “Hellz no! Over my dead body!” and took the movie to another studio where it was made with Sean Penn (who got an Oscar nomination) and Michelle Pfeiffer)

  14. 64


    - Untitled TV pilot project based on a play called “Parental Discretion” that Ticky was producing for her father to star in.
    2001 and 2002
    - I didn’t find anything but that doesn’t mean there weren’t any. It’s just that after 6 hours (strung out over a couple of days!) I had reached my Ticky saturation point. Unlike those crazy ass hens and trolls there’s only so much time I’m willing to devote to making fun of this trick…
    - The Case Study
    - Zora
    - The Senator’s Wife
    - Top Dog/Underdog
    - The Time Traveler’s Wife (was finally made with Rachel McAdams in the role Ticky wanted)
    - Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day (Frances McDomarmand was playing Miss Pettigrew. Ticky was interested in a supporting role that later went to Amy Adams. The film didn’t get made until 2007.)
    - A Mighty Heart (We all know what happened to this one…Mariane Pearl wanted Angie to play her and the hens had a group conniption fit.)
    - Diary (According to several articles I found this was supposed to shoot in Sept 2005 and was cancelled in May or June. The guy who was going to direct, George Hickenlooper, hen went on to film Factory Girl with Sienna Miller in Dec 2005)
    - Untitled Dickey Chappelle Project (Did the world really need Ticky as a WW II photojournalist? I think not.)
    - A Soapbox Opera (With Luke Wilson…let’s all heave a big sigh of relief that this got shitcanned)
    - The Gambit (The Coens wrote the first draft of the script but it was in the process of being re-written by someoen else when Ticky was attached. Colin Firth was attached to star, as was Ben Kingsley. This finally got made in 2011 with Cameron Diaz in the role Ticky wanted.)
    - Wanted (With La Streep…and then without cuz Meryl signed on because of Brad and then dropped out when it was just Ticky. This is one of the 3 projects Ticky supposedly took with her when Brad kicked her out of Plan B.)
    - Family and Other Accidents
    - Over the Hedge 2 (voice work, but Katzenberg ended up not making this movie)
    - The Boring Girls (Yes, folks, Ticky has been trying to make this movie for almost 6 years)
    - Since Yesterday (This was a play in NYC Ticky claimed she was “looking at” doing. She said she started in the theater and would love to go back to it. It was off-Broadway not Broadway…for which every actor trodding the pines on Broadway is deeply grateful for…)
    - You Are Here (With Sam Rockwell…who’s friends with Brad AND VV and said they didn’t gcare if he did a movie with Ticky cuz it was work and not like he was having an affair with her…not that they’d care about that either…that was MY interpretation not Sam’s.)
    - The Pentogram (With Adam Brody…who co-starred in M&MS. He said he thought Ticky has hot. Luckily for him this movie didn’t happen because “hot” is the last thing his career would have been afterwards.)
    All of these films were announced in the press release for starting Echo Films with Hahn…
    - The Divorce Party
    - Getting Rid of Matthew
    - counter-Clockwise
    - Chemisty
    - Love: Todd (producer only)
    - Also of note…Ticky tried to get hired for a Woody Allen movie – either You’ll Meet A Tall Dark Stranger or Midnight In Paris. This is my theory of how it went down – First she had dinner with Diane Keaton in June…then 6 weeks later she had lunch with Woody and his child bride. Then they were never seen together again. You do the math and tell me 2+2 doesn’t equal “Woody laughed so hard he almost choked on the fish he was gumming.”

    - Pumas
    - Holler (producer only. This film is about a biracial girl and I wa shocked Ticky didn’t cast herself and claim she was trying to “stretch” her acting chops…)
    - The Boring Girls was supposed to start shooting in Jan 2010 and she kept pimping it, so I’m going to throw it every time she claimed she was about to make it…
    - Buttercup (with Tommy Lee Jones…who promptely decamped as soon as she announced she was on board and signed on to 3 other movies instead.)
    - The Boring Girls…talking about it AGAIN…
    Ticky claimed she was taking the year off…but…
    - While pimping Horrible Movie in London she claimed she wanted to come to London and do a play with Kevin Space at The Old Vic where he’s theatrical director. Kevin Spacey had no comment.
    - There’s a variety story that says Jerry Weintraub is producing a movie for Ticky at Universal, but doesn’t give the name of the movie.
    - The Place Beyond The Pines – with Closet Boy (I’d seen some scuttlebutt that she’d been cast in it and mentioned it here, but it turned out she didn’t get the role. It went to Eva Mendes instead.)
    - The Boring Girls…STILL talking about it…

  15. 65

    - Miss You Already aka Beaches Redux
    - The Switch (#2. Apparently she’s cornering the market on movies named “The Switch”.)
    - The Boring Girls…rears it’s ugly head again cuz it’s “stuck in development”
    - Claims she has a movie she wants to direct, but didn’t say what it was.
    Whew…I counted 38 movies, 1 play and 1 possible, maybe, if-only play – 41 if you want to count the 3 times after The Boring Girls was announced that she claimed she was making it and never did. Of those 38 REAL projects -
    - Only 6 of them have been made
    - None of 6 that were made have HER in them
    - This means that Black Hole Ticky has sucked in 33 projects which will probably never again see the light of day.
    Now, somebody remind me again…Why is Ticky supposedly considered an “A-list movie star”?

    Finally someone had the balls to say some negative truth about pitt’s moneybomb. Mickey rourke says it was fuking torture to watch that pos.
    Isn’t brad supposed to be an international star? Moneybomb made 34 million and some change In foreign box office and 110 worldwide.
    The tourist banked more than both of brads last movies.
    Tree of life was another dud with 13 million domestic bwhaah and 41 foreign. Wtf happened to his star power? Add the $$ he paid for good reviews and Promotion and they made nada off those pos piitstain movies.
    It’s official.. Angelina’s leg has more star power than brad Pitt.

    @Never forget:

    TOL a dud? Wait till 20 yrs from now. It is a masterpiece.
    It got amazing reviews. So it did not have BO # BFD..pffft.
    Don’t bash clueless fck.
    Both Angie & Brad make quality films with messages.
    AMH was Angie’s fave film & it did not have BO#’s BUT AMH will also be talked about 20 yrs from now.
    My point? Brad doesn’t give a hoot about BO#’s
    He is our best story teller & and fantastic important producer.

    as far as their film career; they are Cristal Rose & Ticky is Cold Duck.

    Brad or Angie do NOT need to “pimp” their kids to get press.
    They are happy if they can be stealth.
    You are on meds or forgot to take it?
    I know, dumbed down Reality Shows are your choice of TV and airhead films are in your collection.

    The Artist did not do well, even after the Oscar win.
    btw..TOL was limited release but you are too busy watching genius films with your Mensa friends, OK, I get it.

    Google Brad’s films..from Troy to Oceans(he got guy)
    to BAR to othes..1/2 billion $ just for Troy.
    Please do not post stupidity.
    Tx fo PT’s wonderful research of Ticky’s film failures, Aniston is a Wh*re

    Baby Says:

    Please don’t bash Mr. Brad Pitt.
    He is a talented versatile actor & producer.
    What he did with MIR is to respect immensely!
    He gave 5 million $ of his own $ to start .Still is involved hands on.
    He is a sweet, good heartd, down to Earth fellow
    which is WHY Angie fell head over heels in love with him.
    Not to mention, he is the best Daddy.

    What did Chin ever give to the needy?
    oh, I forgot, she poses stiffly with a St. Jude child at Xmas time. LOL

    LEAVE BRAD PITT sound very stupid & extremely jealous.
