Angelina Jolie has opened up about her future plans to stop her career as an actress during an interview with Britain’s Channel 4 News.

I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what’s happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”

    Rose @ 12/03/2012 at 7:20 am (from previous thread)

    @Busted: Hi Busted wasn’t that a good interview.Why is it they,the media always twist their, B/A words. Also,she has been cutting back for the last 4 years know. I see her doing something very short onec in a while. The trolls can talk about garbage as much as they want.
    If SS can still get movie offers after she turns out one bomb after another for 6 years, why are trolls worried about Brad movie not making bank this time. Brad did not promote KTS because of time restraint, he only was out one day, and they still made millions of dollars. Not like SS was out there working her a&& off and only brought in like $200,000 on one of her movie. Can’t even remember the name. So Brad will be just fine, and his fans will be right with him always.


    my dear don’t begrudge Tickys Bombs, may they be the ones she has headlined her self like Management and Switch or the assembled cast movies Wonderbust well you see its part of her furniture so to speak lol. Failure and her go hand in hand.
    She likes to promote whatever means it takes cloths on or off but it always fails in actually putting bums on seats at the end of the day. Her own production company cant get any funding for her movies and she herself can’t manage to get any movie green lighted on her own, so Rose don’t begrudge her on her failures my dear lol be happy that’s karma.
    On the topic of Angelina’s movies considering the considerable gap from one movie to another where she is concernered, if you take into account the impact her movies
    Have are big ones that you don’t realise there ever was a gap of 2 years or so.
    When Angie does a movie it accumulates into a blockbusters like Salt &Tourist, when Angie does small independent dramatised movies like Changeling & Mighty Heart and In the Land of blood & honey they are Oscar , SAG and Golden Globe nominated all these movies may be made far and between but still are critically
    Brad came only for what 1 day did his promoting and still managed to get 8 million within a week at the box office despite the limited promotion and the movie was critically lauded by the European & domestic critics this movie will stand the testament of time.
    Domestic box office isn’t be all and end all of any movie. No one remembers a rom come even after 1 month people always remember what Brad & Angie did may it be Fight Club over 10 years ago still counted as 1 of the best movies , In the land of Blood & Honey angies very first Directorial début is the inspiration behind the British governments campaign in preventing sexual violence in conflict initiatives. That is a testament what this movie has achieved to become an inspiration of this campaign. god bless you angie.

    Congratulations to Prince William & Kate on the arrival of their baby, at least the baby would be beautiful there is no doubt of that.On other note with their baby news they are bound to be on front cover on all magazines so I guess Halle Berry still wouldn’t be able to get any mag cover yet again and so would not be Tickys engagement party/ tree trimming party which curiously happens before Monday’s deadline magazine wise.
    So the stalking happened on Sunday oh what a coincidence so near Brads movie opening and all her C list palls were there with her trimming her bush i mean tree .by the way where was her mouth piece her dog BFF Chelsea isnt she good enough for tucky any more ?

    So I guess if they are lucky both will make the side bars at least.

    In regards to Brads last thread:

    First the movie is another great movie from Brad & Andrew its way ahead of its time, what has happened is Harvey has managed to spend less on promotion and saved it for his other pet projects. Am not going to dwell on the negativity and idiocy, as I see the resident trolls have done it.
    Fans are right to query why we haven’t seen any promos for KTS before it was released. There is no doubt there would be award nominations for KTS there are several award worthy performances in this gritty movie. Any way from a $15 million budged movie which has basically recuperated more or less from foreign markets still there are major countries where its still awaiting to be released yet, domestic market isn’t the only market that should be considered. Come back to me in ten years time when any one even remembers what twilight or expendables were.
    People who gave the cinema score apparently have some IQ missing I guess the movie subject regarding politics was too much too challenging for the two brain cells. I guess the rest of the world’s critics and cinema goers understood apart from this little group of people.
    Ironic isn’t it for the past 8 years regardless where Brads movies end up in the box office listings they still manage to get Oscar nominated boys not doing badly in my opinion. Still churning out critically exclaimed movies that would be remembered in 10-20 years time.
    Thanks Brad for taking these risks and producing masterpieces like Jesse James, Fight Club and KTS god willing there will be many more to come cannot wait for your next master piece The Twelve Years of a Slave which will be another feather in your cap Brad you keep defying the norm time e& time again.
    Listen note to the name changing Bi-polar trolls no need to answer me back you have already done my head in by posting same articles time & time again talking about cinema scores & a budgets that weren’t spent in the first place, at least you gave Brads Threads on other sites more Hits for brad same like your doing here at angies as well so its nice to see that they are Killing You Trolls Softly lol.

    Jaye @ 12/02/12 at 05:04 pm from brads previous thread)


    my dear Good morning another great post from your self I agree the greater success for brad is the quality of the movie and its endurance as far as the public consciousness and yes 10-20 years from know people would be talking about his movies, his projects. These moves are so out of the box that’s what captures the public’s imagination. Is it really that difficult to understand?
    The box office fluff as you called rightly so, no one remembers them, what after 6 months a year they are forgotten. Movies that mentally challenge you are the ones people remember, movies that touch the core with their daring subjects, that no on would have thought of putting on big screen are the ones that are the most thought provoking & remembered.
    I remember watching a documentary about Orson Wells how segregated in Hollywood he was made with every project he did, it was a personal challenge to him may it be professionally or financially
    Big fights with the studio heads audiences were fed the propagandas. Know after 20-30 years his movies have all weathered the testament of time classics one after another there is no denying of his god given talent. Sorry to go off the topic a bit but what I am trying to say is that Brad is on the right path there are challenges that he will face, there is no financial aspect that’s driving him to do produce and act in these small projects which he can afford to peruse. And his other worthy endeavours no matter what the outcome his fans will stick by him regardless as we have faith in him.
    Sorry Jaye to go on by doing your head in please forgive me l didn’t mean to, it just frustrates me when I see when a genuine talent is not appreciated.

    For the love of god Tyson in your whole boxing life wasn’t there any thing else exciting happen than
    A glimpse of Brad Pitt, how much name drop can one guy do damn him

    I see Kim Kartarshin is still trying to defuse the Middle East conflict with East with one Milk Shake shop at a time funny thing is she can’t answer simple questions like what do you like about Dubai or Kuwait. She goes you have lovely hotels here its so nice then froze. I guess difficult questions are a challenge for some one so pretty and low on IQ lol.

    @Phool: Hi Phool, how are you lady, hope you are doing great. Good to see you today. Talking about trimming bush.. Do you remember Gerard B said he trimmed her bush when she took the group to Mexico, I believed for the Birthday party? So funny you mentioned the bush part.

    Yes, whats going on with Taylor S. Is she ok? Does seen like she is going through some kind unhealthy behavior for sch a talented young woman.

    Rose Says:

    @Phool:#137, You mentioned Jamie foxx, did you see that video TMZ had shown of JF about six months ago. That was one of the funniest videos I’ve seen. First, JF was obviously high as a kite at home. He was in the hallway of his home in his tighty brief bancing to imaginary music. That SH.t was so funny I watched it about a dozen times. The people at the house with him was dying with laughter, he was so out of it he didn’t even acknowledge their prescence, funny, funny stuff. Lol.

    Rose Says:

    @Passing Through:#114, PT, re Tyson. I believes it’s a new interview, trying to sell the book. So if he changed the story around it will be more salacious. So instead of passing each other at RG home now it’s in bed. Poor Brad, everyone wants to make a buck off his name.

    Rose Says:

    Is that you Josephine sitting in your filthy basement thumbing down every fan comments. Too bad it’s only of you and many of us. Anyway take care, the wedding is coming soon, you’ll have plenty of work coming. you are acting as if thumbing down fans comments is your job.

    # 123 huh @ 12/04/2012 at 11:56 am
    LOL! You took the words right out of my mouth. I was just about to ask that. If she’s slept with every one of these guys – and you know she has – then the next time a troll brings up someone that Angie supposedly slept with 15 years ago I’m going to ask why they’re not over on Swifty’s threads calling HER a ho. She’s, what, 22? I don’t even keep up with the girl and off the top of my head I can recall at least 5 guy’s she’s whined about dumping her – Gaybe Lautner, The Urinator, Gaybe Jakey, one of those Jonas boys and some joker from Glee. Plus we know she just broke up with Conor Kennedy after being seen with his cousin Patrick Schwarzenegger. She better slow down or she’ll be calling Chapstick asking if they make anti-chafing products for the inner thighs…

    That was kinda my point. When Megan Fox is featured on VF, even in an ensemble, before Ticky…you know her ass has pissed Graydon off. That and the trick literally has NOTHING to say that doesn’t involve her hair, her diet, her exercise routine, name-dropping Brad and whining about the ratzi following her but failing to say that most of the time she dropped a dime on herself…

    His one-man show is still going on? Whatever. The story about Tyson catching Brad in bed with RG has been going around for dog years. That’s nothing new – except that now Tyson is changing his version of how he found out RG was seeing other men at the same time he was trying to get her to come back. If anything it’s Tyson either confirming the rumor or playing it up. A few years back the Globe rag had a story on it – as told by Mr. IUC. He tried to play it up like they were in bed together and when Tyson came around Brad jumped out the bedroom window and never saw RG again. WRONG! Brad dated her for months after that so obvs he wasn’t all that scared of Tyson. As far as Tyson coattail-riding Brad…well, that’s the juciest story he’s got that he can tell publicly that won’t send him back to jail: Brad Pitt had Jungle Fever. Yawn.

    New thread ? got a bit busy. Angie is gorgie with brains. Sexual violence is a serious matter.

    Rose Says:

    @Passing Through: Hi PT, a few months ago I saw MT telling the story and he did not mention anything about finding them in bed. He said he was going to see RG early one morning and Brad was leaving and when he saw brad his little mike was deflated. I heard him, now he’s changing the story. Anyway, he was using a lot of cocaine at that time so who knows what he remembers from day to day. Also, RG said the affair was just for a few months I’m sure less than six. If I’m not mistaken it was between 2-3 months.

    Howdy Fans, I hope all is well with each of you.
    Phool @ 12/04/2012 at 12:48 pm
    Hi. How is it going? Sounds like you woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed as my grandma would say lol.
    Don’t apologize for being a good fan and speaking your mind. It’s hard to find many who are worthy of the enthusiasm the fans have for BP and AJ.
    Pitt is doing what he wants, what he loves, if there isn’t the recognition of his talent that we all think he is worthy of, he’s in good company. There are been a number of actors in the past who have not received the Oscar and these ladies and gentlemen were superb talents. The lack of recognition during award season didn’t change that. Paul Newman was in his mid fifties before he won his only acting Oscar for The Color of Money, despite that fact that he had many Oscar worthy roles before that. I don’t even think he was even there to pick up the award.
    Pitt is not a player and you have to appreciate someone who doesn’t kiss for something that won’t make much difference in the course of his life. He has other, much more important things.
