    Love Angelina for what she’s doing it’s fantastic!
    She looks great but I like when she colors her hair dark brown or black just looks better with her light skin tone. Not loving the new hair color she has right now.

  • Lurker

    The haters are out in full force, Angie must be doing something right😃. Way to go Angie, keep living your best life💚

  • What happened?

    I really miss the old Angie when she had some meat on her bones like in the Lara Croft movies. She looks amazing! Tan skin, not too thin, muscle, she looked perfect. Now, idk too thin for me!

  • sullivan

    Jolie is respected worldwide for her commitment to humanitarian efforts and her talent as an actress/writer/director. As an aside, she happens to be a breathtakingly beautiful woman. She has a gorgeous man who adores her and a loving family. Apparently some people find the riches of life that have been bestowed upon her to be too much. These people are a minority, though. The rest of us, who have rich, fulfilling lives of our own appreciate that Jolie gives as much as she has received.

    My teacher told me that she saw Angie and her kids coming out of Barnes and Noble a few yrs back, omg I would die if I saw her!!!!

  • Bette

    lol i dont care about this woman but holy sh*t. her haters are a bunch of psychotic lunatics. i dont know why anyone thinks it’s normal or fun to pass time by obsessively hating on someone you dont even know…not only that but cruel jokes about her children? get some help weirdos.

    The troll with the gif are trying too hard. Neither of those gifs show what you wrote. LOL

  • sullivan

    Poor troll. You sit in the dark and anxiously await a new Angelina Jolie thread. When one appears you jump. Pavlov’s Dog. You deftly describe dark, sad, & disturbing behaviors that you attribute to Jolie, but it’s obvious that you are speaking from your own personal experiences. Most find your ubiquitous comments harmless, especially since they’re so quickly buried. I find them a little sad.

  • anon

    She is one smart cookie. Her comments are always so thoughtful. Very loyal and gracious also to give the festival such love AND exposure.

  • Kay

    why are people hating on her movie? her movie got her a golden globe nomination and a prestigious stanley kramer award. (haters dont bother saying she “bought” them because youre the same people who claim nobody cares about angelina anymore and that no one actually likes her). her film is also being used to bring attention to how rape is used as a weapon in war. anyone who thinks she seriously made a foreign movie about rape in the bosnian war with unknown actors so it can make 200 million dollars in box office needs a reality check.

  • Passing Through

    I see Tampon and her Duh-listed cohorts have found another proxy server so they can spend the entire weekend spamming the threads again. How pathetic does your life have to be to troll like this every weekend? I would feel kind of a sorry for them except for the fact that they’re a bunch of morons. We get it – Mommy didn’t love ‘em and abondoned ‘em and Daddy diddled ‘em and abandoned ‘em…but that’s no excuse for being asssssholes all their lives…

    It’s so weird! I dont know how someone can have such strong feelings about STRANGERS. They make up weird things in their heads too like them all laughing at that gif and convincing themselves that shiloh and zahara hate brad because they went with angelina. They are so nuts.

  • Bow down to Angelina

    Isn’t it amazing how much Angelina rules the lives of the idiots posting their negativity as usual?

    Isn’t it amazing that Angelina just by being honored by real people with real lives brings out the cretins who lurk on any thread having to do with her?

    Isn’t it amazing that Angelina is happy healthy and doesn’t even know that these maximun dummies rush to any and every thread with her name attached in their compelling haste to be first?

    Isn’t it amazing that Angelina has the complete love and support of the love of her life while the dummies rushing to post weak puffery and faint smoke have no one?

    Maybe if some paid attention to their own loveless empty forlorn lonely lives and stayed off the internet trolling for Angelina’s threads so they could discuss this at FF, they too could have the wonderful life Angelina is living each and every day.

    But sadly LOL they cannot live without their manic compulsion to seek each and every Angelina thread, posting hits which makes JJ happy and wealthy.

    THE FIRST RULE OF THE FF’ERS IS ANGELINA FOREVER CONTROLS OUR LIVES AND WE CAN’T DO ANYTHING TO STOP OUR DEVIANT BEHAVIOR LOL

    ALL HAIL THE MAGICAL AND WONDERFUL ANGELINA!!!!!!! SHE RULES WITHOUT EVEN TRYING.

    Angelina truly looks so happy in her pictures and that gorgeous ring is very visible. And it suits her personality and classic style so well.

    I wish Brad could have been there to hear her speak but I know they have their schedules worked out to do what is best for the entire family.

    This is the most articulate woman in Hollywood and in and under so many varied circumstances. She is so knowledgeable about her subject and speaks with such conviction and clarity and confidence the young people listening to her, I am certain, gleened a wealth of knowledge from all her experiences.

    thing is you have to have a life in order to make a decision. Those idiots don’t have a life. And Salacious and Whamo spend all their time on dlisted talking about Angie. Even when the conversation is not about her. They are so desperate to be her that they have brainwashed the other idiots on the site to join them. Thing is for some of the fools there trolling is fun and they say crap to bother the fans.. the other two crossed the line of sanity a long time ago. They are using the other idiots to do their dirty work. telling them it’s to bother us. Right..

    they are talking Angie more now then before. She has really gotten under their skin. Seriously we are observing something quite unique.. Crazy but unique.

    Jolie has lived up to her promise and returned to Sarajevo, this time a guest of the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival. She has come to Sarajevo to encourage young talent, the enrollees of the 6th Sarajevo Talent Campus. Once again, Angelina has confirmed that she is eager to work with young, talented artists, and encourage and support their future education.

    “The Sarajevo Film Festival is such an important event to focus the world’s attention on the art, the music and the immense talent in the region. It is also a reminder of the incredible healing potential of art and film. Always such a pleasure to be here.” said Jolie.

    The opening lecture of the 6th Sarajevo Talent Campus was attended by about one hundred young, talented, directors, scriptwriters, producers, actors, and film critics from thirteen countries in the region.

    Emotional Jolie visits Sarajevo Film Festival
    .

    .
    .SARAJEVO (Reuters) – Angelina Jolie, whose directorial debut tackled the 1992-95 Bosnian war, attended the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival on Saturday and became an honorary citizen of the Bosnian capital in recognition of her film.

    “This means so much to me. My heart is in this city,” said a tearful Jolie on receiving the award from Sarajevo authorities. She arrived with her three children on a private plane.

    Jolie’s film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” tells the story of the war through the relationship between Danijel, a Bosnian Serb, and Ajla, a Bosnian Muslim woman, whose affection becomes hostage to their respective ethnic groups.

    “It was the hardest thing I have ever done because of my deep respect for the people that really experienced it. The experience here was so unique for me that I felt very connected to the people,” Jolie told Reuters.

    But the Oscar-winning actress, who has used her fame to draw attention to humanitarian disasters across the world, said she was hesitant about embarking on a new directorial project tackling another conflict, such as the one in Afghanistan.

    “I have been writing and I’d love to try at some point to direct another film. I would like to try to learn about countries like Afghanistan but I don’t know if I am the best person to make the film about the subject matter,” she said.

    “Unless I felt I was somebody that can really contribute, I don’t think I would do it,” she added.

    “I think it’s important for film-makers to know what they are trying to say when they make a film. If you’re gonna do something about another country, make sure to surround yourself by extraordinary people from that country and really know that country and let that country speak through you. Don’t try to give the country your own voice.”

    This is Jolie’s second attendance of the festival, the largest southern European film gathering.

    She also threw her support behind the Sarajevo Talent Campus program, which gives young film talents from the region the chance to learn from established film professionals willing to share their knowledge.

    The program seeks to give writers, actors and directors access to further education, an entry to the international film industry, and an incentive to make their first joint projects with colleagues from the region.

    “I hope to spread to the world to pay more attention to the artists from this region,” said Jolie.

    The film festival, which opened late on Friday, acts as a major regional showcase. This year it will show more than 200 movies during its nine days.

    Nine feature films from Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia, Turkey, Austria and Romania are competing for the Heart of Sarajevo, the festival’s main award.

    Apart from Jolie, the most famous guests are Spanish actress Victoria Abril, who stars in Macedonian film “The Woman Who Brushed Off Her Tears”, and American director Todd Solondz, whose films will be screened in a special retrospective program.

    Every year the festival hosts about 100,000 film fans, many from neighboring countries, and hoteliers and tourism officials say that nearly all accommodation is booked up during the event.

    Jolie in Sarajevo for film festival
    (AFP) – 7 hours ago
    .
    .

    SARAJEVO — US superstar Angelina Jolie, whose recent directorial debut dealt with the 1992-95 war in Bosnia, arrived on Saturday as a special guest of the Sarajevo Film Festival.
    Jolie is to be made an honorary citizen of Sarajevo during her stay, an honour first announced in April, for her efforts in “keeping the truth about wartime events in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Hercegovina alive”.
    The award is given by the Sarajevo county every year to a foreign national who promotes humanity, democracy and tolerance.
    Jolie’s film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” — shot in 2010 with several actors from the former Yugoslavia, and premiered in 2011 — dealt with the issues of war crimes.
    While the project initially sparked concern in Bosnia, once it was shown, most victims’ groups welcomed it as objective and sincere.
    Jolie arrived without Brad Pitt but with at least three of their children on board a private plane at Sarajevo’s airport around 1400 GMT, an AFP photographer said.
    She attended a workshop for young film artists from 13 countries, held on the sidelines of the 18th Sarajevo Film Festival, organisers said.
    “The Sarajevo Film Festival is such an important event to focus the world’s attention on the art, the music and the immense talent in the region,” Jolie was quoted as saying in a statement issued by organisers.
    Jolie spoke about her experiences of numerous visits to conflict or poverty-stricken areas in her role as UNHCR goodwill ambassador.
    The Sarajevo Film Festival — born as an act of resistance when the Bosnian capital was under siege during the 1992-1995 war — has has grown to be one of the largest in Europe.

    FacebookTweetAngelina Jolie has touched down in Sarajevo – and she has her kids (including a smiling Shiloh, 6) in tow!

    The actress, who’s in Bosnia for the 18th annual Sarajevo Film Festival, was spotted smiling and waving at fans en route to her hotel on Saturday morning.

    Back in April, Jolie, who’s been filming Maleficent in the U.K., was declared an honorary citizen of the city, which she’s visited twice before in her role as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

    Tonight she’s scheduled to participate in a cinema workshop dedicated to young southeast European filmmakers, according to festival organizers. She will also walk the red carpet beforehand at the National Theatre of Sarajevo.

    Jolie and fiancé Brad Pitt have visited the region often, most recently for the emotional premiere of her film, and directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, in February.

    Not a huge fan of hers because she’s not my favorite actress, but I love that she’s not afraid to be herself, and is more focused on her humanitarian work and helping other people.
