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 dunno .I don’t belive she will really leave acting. Wait and watch she will be back in a short time. She and Brad Pitt both said they would not get married until all people had a right and now they are planning a wedding soon.
    I have a feeling they are trying to upstage the news that Will and Kate have a baby. Right now Kate and Wills baby is the news and Jolie and Brad want to upstage that. Silly people.

There was a rapid fire quiz, Fran was asked if you were deserted on a desert island who would want to be with? answer, Brad Pitt, q #2 who is your secret crush? answer, Brad Pitt. One of the guys said, you would have to fight Angelina. Fran answered something about skinny, did anyone heard what FD said?

    @Bea: She is not a PR actress. She is very good and talented. She did not get famous instantly, she had to work hard for it. She has an Oscar and some of her performences are fantastic.
    You wannw know who are PR made actress?
    Ashely Greene and freida Pinto.
    They are both ugly and untalented. They will never end up having a career like Angelina. You need to get her kind of career.freida pinto especially. She disseed the most beautiful and talented actress in India, Aishwarya Rai. Sorry but slum girl is a nobody. Jolie and Rai are icons in their industry.

    I remember what Tyson said months ago. That’s why I said he may just be playing it up because of the old rumor. Tyson was doing coke…plus RG and her mother had him convinced he was bipolar and he was on Lithium and a boat load of anti-psychotic drugs. All those blows he took to the head boxing don’t help matters much…

    Actually, I believe she said she’ll retire when the durrlets are a little older. But this mantis gets our hopes up every year with this shitt, and yet we still see her Handsome Squidward mug. But since Leg-gate there might be some truth to it. She knows she’s a just a colossal joke now, not to mention Pitty with his embarrassing Chanel disaster and KTS bombing. She’ll continue to do the only thing that gets her some positive attention -fauxmanitarian work.

    She is still my role model. So great, poised, passionate and intelligent..makes me happy (though she being so pale and skinny still worries me)

    carry Says:

    I dislike that bittchy woman but this is something probably someone posted so I have to copy it here because some of it I agree in most but not all consideration not bad. I am not meaning in bad way….
    1. Stop trying to chase the Oscar. The public can feel the desperation from miles away.
    2. Stick to the original idea of a book or a script, and stop with all the political analysis.
    3. Clean up. That means bathe, shave and cut the hair.
    4. When promoting a movie, PROMOTE the movie, not your personal life. If interview asks any questions, just state that you are only here to promote the movie itself.
    5. Stop traveling all over like some damn military mobile unit. Put some roots down, and stay there. Let those kids have a somewhat normal life….there is time left to turn that all around.
    4. Either Marry Jolie or Don’t. Just stop using the sacrament of Marriage as a PR tool. It’s getting ridiculous and redundant, and it also very dis-respectful to the woman that you are engaged to, when you constantly make up excuses, giving sound bites to feed the media frenzy.
    3. Stop talking about the legalization of drugs, the legalization of gay marriage and STOP with the constant BASHING of the USA.. You are only doing what you’ve done to your family, alienating a lot of people that do not have the same ideas as yours. You want to support these things than do it quietly without fanfare. You’re only losing those bible belt fans, along with fans in the USA. We get it. Shut your mouth about US.
    2. Do not do another product endorsement. EVER.
    1. Stop whining in all your interviews how you’re growing old, or that being an actor is such hard work or those big size lottery paychecks are not coming your way anymore. That is why your paid those big bucks. No one likes a whiny, sniveling, multi-millionaire…especially in times like these when people are hurting and wondering if they will have a job, a house, etc.

    megatit Says:

    Lol, where IS the twelve year old with her calculator?
    Yeah, I think she senses their loss of cool points. Good point about playing the victim. She sure ran BBT under the bus after the divorce. She’s just trying to re-work her image, that’s all.
    Pretty quiet on the loon front, no? After the KTS bomb, I can see these creatures sitting around a fire singing hymns to the Loon gods to bring good luck to Brad for WWZ, ala Hobbit.
