@Susan: Hey Susan! What ever happened to that recording contract Goop signed? Still waiting for the first single so I can purchase. LOL!

Ssssssssshhhhhh keep quite the biitch might hear & see this and if she thought there is even ONE single person out there enquiring about it then you know she is going to do it, GF if you really are in the need to rip your eardrums open then I can send you a CD of an ally cat screeching that is close to the real thang (goop’s singing).

Bost Film Critics and Washington DC Film Critics got it right. TYAS swept the awards. It should be this way through the rest of awards season.

~~~Jennifer Files for Divorce from Brad
By STEPHEN M. SILVERMAN
03/25/2005 at 11:00 PM EST

There he was Easter weekend at a luxe late-’50s home in Rancho Mirage, Calif., proudly pushing a stroller and romping in a sunny suburban paradise with five little boys. (Boys, even though he had said he wanted all girls.) One of them was Pitt’s spitting image and sat on the star’s lap in an old-fashioned paneled station wagon. “Brad was having a blast,”

On March 25, the same day Pitt was playing dad in the desert, she filed for divorce from the 41-year-old actor in Superior Court in L.A. County, emphatically ending any talk that the couple, who announced their separation Jan. 7, might reconcile. She then headed for the Malibu home of her close friend Courteney Cox Arquette. And Pitt the papa? Pure fantasy—or maybe a weird joke, given the “wife” at his side: Angelina Jolie. Gearing up the promotional machinery for Mr. and Mrs. Smith, their upcoming romantic thriller about a married pair of professional assassins, he and costar Jolie, 29, were doing a two-day photo shoot March 25 and 26 for the June issue of W. With Pitt’s friend and favorite photographer, Steven Klein, handling the camera, he and Jolie play-acted a happily married couple in a retro, picture-perfect style suggesting an American family of the Kennedy era. False smiles all around. The kids? Hired models.

In short, there was a fun-house-mirror aspect to the whole shoot (which Aniston didn’t know about, a source says). How could anyone see those five boys and not think about the flawless marriage that had now proved unsalvageable, and childless, after less than five years? Or the rumors (denied by all parties) that Jolie and Pitt had fallen for each other during the movie’s protracted shoot? Even though Pitt and Jolie were also photographed for steamier shots minus the children, “the only time Brad and Angelina came in contact was to take a picture,” says the onlooker. Otherwise they kept to separate trailers (Jolie had toted her son Maddox, 3, along with her) and separate rooms at a nearby hotel. Yet “there was definitely that wink-wink feeling on the set.”

At one point a member of the crew tried to set the mood by playing Frank Sinatra’s “Love and Marriage” on the stereo. “The whole set was laughing—even Brad and Angelina,” says the source. “They just kind of snickered.” ~~~

Brad was so broken up over the whole thing. NOT. LOL.

Ticky hags are in so much pain and having a meltdown. Lol.

why you post history here dude?? can something happen from Brad without maniston something?
Pr people I say the agencies who are responsible for some of this…

So now Goop and Ticky are friends? Lol.

I had a beautiful start of the day thank you LCA for asking my Sister, seeing Angie & the Kids out and about and hearing Brads NY , Boston & Washing ton Critics Win for TYAS , Yes that’s made my day extra beautiful with sugar & spice also seeing the Tickys Trolls melt down adds another dimension on happiness lol.
.
Honestly I’m bad in my posting replies to everyone that at times I don’t get chance to individually reply back as I have already taken over the thread with News Posts lol, but saying that fans like yourself are never away from my thoughts wishing you all well but its extra special when you all are able to make it here so gives us a chance to rejoice the JP good news together.
.
Now seeing that you are busy with college therefore I’m not even going to try to lure you here in the souls of sin lol, put your head down study hard & make a change in the world with your good deeds my sis, that’s my advice of the day for you. Saying that when you are on a break do please pop in here and say Hi its always nice to hear from a sane person once in a while lol.

Carry, Bet, Samm troll…………let me spell this out for you once and for all and then perhaps you could move on to another banal diatribe…..just to change it up……

People with amazing talent, vision, beauty and heart ……don’t need PR…..their work and deeds speak for themselves.

Angie was slaughtered in the press when the ‘lying victim’ started her ten year whine….without the cheese…….we’re getting the cheese now…..and she didn’t care then………so why in hell would you think now that she is admired all over the world and just received her second Oscar………..and is directing a big studio film……..do you think she’d need it now.

Now, just so you understand………your idol, the mediocre one who is famous for her personal life and hair……..and embarrassingly shy on real talent, has won no awards and is ageing out of romcoms……..now she needs PR because her work does not speak for itself. She just loves being famous and will do or pay anything to remain so.

There are two different stratosphere’s here….please try and ‘get’ that.

Thank You Sister for the encouragement :) I wish the same for you Hun. :)

@Passing Through: Hey, maybe Squiggs was even still in town and Ticky didn’t have to explain to everyone why he skipped out on the event.

_________
I’m confused. Squiggy was at her tree trimming party, right?

#Observer2 @ 12/09/2013 at 11:18 am
..
LMAO O2 now your asking for a Troll melt down.

eh, huvsey has tried this goopy & old manny are buddies strategy a few times and it never seems to catch any traction, so the PR addicts can spend their millions and try it again & again, like it’s “news!”. Remember how many times fat tick planted the totally false lunch with Shiloh story? FAT tick is tackier than ever- call the paps, release the guest list- so gross. Clearly, it is just another way to coat tail the JPs by dropping their names…sort like- see, fat tick old manny & goopy were SOMEBODY once (ha!)…NOW, they both are desperately clinging onto to the Z-list. Remember that hotel opening in Morocco 4-5 years ago where fat tick old manny & goopy were all chummy?? You probably could pin down the exact date by looking up a JP family or career event. Goop is now a slightly young version of fat tick- she’s a tv girl now who gets to play a girlfriend of the male star in a movie…at least goopy has access (I think) to CM’s $$.

I don’t understand what Brad saw in both Goopy and Ticky back then. When you see pictures of them together, Brad was the beauty between them, the two women were plain looking. Brad dated many women who were so below him. Angie is the only one who matches him.

Photo Flash: Angelina Jolie Visits THE LION KING in Australia
———————————————————————————
December 9
.
Yesterday, Angelina Jolie and her family took in a performance of The Lion King in Sydney, Australia. All six of her children attended the matinee. Angelina “loved” the show and signed the autograph wall. Below, Check out a photo of Jolie backstage with the cast!
.
Disney’s landmark musical event, The Lion King, played its 6,681st performance on Saturday evening, November 30th, surpassing the original Broadway production of LES MISERABLES (6,680 performances) to become the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history.Having recently celebrated its 16th anniversary on Broadway last month, The Lion King finds itself in a position unprecedented in the history of Broadway. Already the highest-grossing show in Broadway history, the show is routinely the #1 Broadway show in a given week, a feat previously unimaginable for a show at this stage in its life.
.
The production recently became the first show in Broadway history to pass $1 billion in cumulative gross, an achievement made by the North American tour of The Lion King earlier this year. The award-winning musical celebrates another milestone this month with its return to Australia, the tenth concurrent worldwide production of The Lion King, the highest number of productions running at any one time in the show’s history. Five of those productions have been running for 10 years or longer, an accomplishment shared by only one other show in history.
.
Among the most successful titles in entertainment history, The Lion King’s worldwide footprint is remarkable. With a cumulative gross in excess of $5 billion, the title has already earned more than the biggest hit films in movie history: more than the Lord of the Rings trilogy combined, more than the six Star Wars films combined, and more than Avatar and Titanic, the two highest-grossing films in movie history, combined.
.
Since its Broadway premiere on November 13, 1997, 21 global productions have been seen by more than 70 million people and, cumulatively, run a staggering 104 years. Translated into eight different languages (Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch, Mandarin, Spanish and Portuguese), productions of The Lion King can currently be seen on Broadway and on tour across North America, in Tokyo and on tour in Japan, in London’s West End and on tour throughout the UK, and in Hamburg, Madrid and Sao Paolo. To date, The Lion King has played 18 countries on every continent except Antarctica.
.
The show’s director, costume designer and mask co-designer Julie Taymor, the first woman to win a Tony Award® for Direction of a Musical, continues to play an integral part in the show’s ongoing success.
Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, The Lion King is playing at Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre (200 West 45th Street). For tickets, show information and performance schedule, call Ticketmaster’s Disney on Broadway hotline at 866-870-2717 or visit online, LionKing.com.

Angelina Jolie: Energetic on the Set of “Unbroken”
—————————————————————
.
Monday December 9, 2013 11:30

.
Kicking off the week with good vibes and a positive attitude, Angelina Jolie showed up on the set of “Unbroken” in Sydney, Australia on Monday (December 9) ready to get stuff done.
.
Clad in a tight black top, the “Changeling” actress served as director as she mimicked how she wanted one of her actors to execute his running scene, and she looked great doing it.
.
Earlier this year, Angelina revealed that she was a carrier of the BRCA breast cancer gene mutation and had a preventative double mastectomy, and Dr. Huma Rana of the Center for Cancer Genetics and Prevention told the Boston Globe that Jolie’s revelation has spiked the number of ladies getting screened.
.
“We’ve definitely had more women coming in to discuss their family history and whether genetic testing is appropriate after they heard about Angelina Jolie. It’s an exciting time for genetic screening. but we have to weigh these options carefully and take a thoughtful approach to what we’re offering.”

Okay now this sounds a bit early to say. But I’ve been seeing some so-called backlash that TYAS didn’t win either of the big three( NYFC,NBR,LAFC). And now some people are saying that TYAS can’t be the front-runner for BP at the Oscars. First of all we all know that TYAS had always their targets on their backs, like Brad said he always had a target on his back. I believe when Brad, Plan B, and Fox Searchlight will campaign hard for this film come January, I know Brad and Steve won’t be ass-kissing voters, but I do believe that Brad is passionate about TYAS and is wiling to the best campaigner for it. And like what Brad said, if this was his last film that this was it for him.

@seriously:
I don’t understand what Brad saw in both Goopy and Ticky back then

When you look at how their respective lives have panned out, you have to totally agree with that statement.

Louis Zamperini Still Serves the Lord at 96: Now the Story of This Living Legend is Being Made into a Movie Directed by Angelina Jolie
————————————————————————————-
.
December 8, 2013
.

I have interviewed some extraordinary people in my more than 44 years as a journalist, but some time back I was able to meet with one of the most inspiring men I have ever met. His name is Louis Zamperini, a true living legend who, at the age of 96, is still serving the Lord.
.
And now has come the news that Angelina Jolie has teamed with Joel and Ethan Coen to make a movie based on Laura Hillenbrand’s book, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption,” which tells the inspiring story of Olympian track star Louis Zamperini’s determination to survive imprisonment as a World War II prisoner of war.
.
Embarking on a career as a film director, Jolie chose “Unbroken” to direct and, while filming in Australia, Jolie was quoted as saying she and Zamperini have grown to be “close friends.”The 38-year-old actress-turned-director, has been busy directing scenes for the movie in Glebe, Australia, surrounded by actors dressed in World War II uniforms, and was recently spotted by the media battling the heat while filming scenes in a fake POW camp on Cockatoo Island in Sydney.This is her second directorial feature, and she says, “[Zamperini] is a true hero and a man with an immense humanity, faith and courage. I am deeply honored to have the chance to tell his inspiring story.”
.
My wife Norma joined me as we drove up through a winding road in the star-studded Hollywood Hills to the home of Zamperini, where he had lived at the time for 56 years and I was able to interview this incredible man shortly after the “Unbroken” book came out. The best-seller chronicles the extraordinary early life of this former Olympic athlete, POW, and now a committed Christian. When we arrived at his picturesque home, Louis was sitting at a desk with a marvelous view of downtown Los Angeles, wearing a red University of Southern California (USC) cap, and was busy signing scores of books for his many fans from around the world.
.
As I began my interview for my “Front Page Radio” program on the KWVE Radio Network (www.kwve.com) in Southern California, I learned that Zamperini, who despite his advanced age, remains active and full of life, lecturing to audiences around the world about how to deal with stress, the meaning of the Olympic movement and the freedom he has found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. During the interview he told me that he was born in Olean, New York to Anthony and Louise Zamperini. The Zamperini family, he said, moved to Torrance, California in the 1920s, where Louis attended Torrance High School.
.
The son of Italian immigrants, Louis spoke no English when his family moved to California, which made him a target for bullies. His father taught Louis how to box for self-defense. Pretty soon, according to Louis, he was “beating the tar out of every one of them… But I was so good at it that I started relishing the idea of getting even. I was sort of addicted to it.” Before long, he went on, he was picking fights “just to see if anyone could keep up with me.” From juvenile thug, he progressed to “teenage hobo.” Hopping a train to Mexico, he courted danger for the thrill of it.
.
Louis said that he had a “knack for getting into trouble,” so his brother got him involved in the school track team. In 1934 Louis set a world interscholastic record in the mile, clocking in at 4 minutes and 21.2 seconds. The record would last for over twenty years, until broken by Dennis Hansen in 1959. That record helped Louis win a scholarship to the University of Southern California, and a place on the 1936 U.S. Olympic team.In the Olympic trials at Randall’s Island, New York, Louis finished in a dead heat against world-record holder Don Lash, and qualified for the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Unfortunately, Louis ruined his chance at gaining the gold by gorging himself on the free food that was provided to the Olympic athletes during the trans-Atlantic cruise. He shared a cabin with the great Jesse Owens who achieved international fame by winning four gold medals: one each in the 100 meters, the 200 meters, the long jump, and as part of the 4×100 meter relay team.
.
“I was a Depression-era kid who had never even been to a drugstore for a sandwich,” he said. “And all the food was free. I had not just one sweet roll, but about seven every morning, with bacon and eggs. My eyes were like saucers.” By the end of the trip, Louis confessed that he had gained 12 pounds.As a consequence, Louis only finished eighth in the 5000 meter distance event at that Berlin Olympics, but his final lap was fast enough to catch the attention of Adolf Hitler, who insisted on a personal meeting. As Louis tells the story, Hitler shook his hand, and said simply ‘The boy with the fast finish.’”
.
I then asked Louis if he had been a Christian at that time, would he have witnessed to Hitler. He smiled and replied, “I would share about Jesus Christ with anyone.”Two years later, in 1938, Zamperini set a national collegiate mile record which held for 15 years and his speed earned him the nickname of “The Torrance Tornado.”Zamperini enlisted in the United States Army Air Forces in September 1941, and after being commissioned a second lieutenant the following August, he was deployed to Hawaii as a B-24 bombardier. After flying a number of missions, his aircraft went down due to mechanical failure on May 27, 1943. After 47 days adrift in the ocean, Zamperini and the only other surviving crew member (pilot Russ Phillips) were rescued by the Japanese Navy.
Louis was held in captivity through the end of the war and his family thought he had been killed in action, but he eventually returned to a hero’s welcome. Zamperini was held in a Japanese Navy camp for captives not labeled as Prisoners of War at Ofuna. Major Greg “Pappy” Boyington was held at the same camp and in Boyington’s book, “Baa Baa Black Sheep” he discussed Zamperini and the Italian recipes he would write to keep the prisoners minds off of the food and conditions.
.
Zamperini then spoke about how, after his return home, he would have horrific nightmares because of what had occurred in the prison camps and one night he awoke to find his hands around the neck of his wife. It was then that he realized he was in deep trouble.His wife, he told me, went to Billy Graham’s historic 1949 Los Angeles Crusade and there she found the Lord. She then persuaded him to go along with her and he said that was very upset with having to attend, but eventually, he too made a personal commitment to Christ, and his whole life turned around in the right direction.
.
He said that he has since become close friends with Billy Graham and said that it was Mr. Graham who helped him launch a new career as a Christian inspirational speaker. One of his favorite themes is “forgiveness,” and he has visited many of the guards from his POW days to let them know that he has forgiven them. Many of the war criminals who committed the worst atrocities were held in the Sugamo prison in Tokyo.In October 1950, Zamperini went to Japan and gave his testimony and preached through an interpreter (a missionary called Fred Jarvis). The colonel in charge of the prison encouraged any of the prisoners who recognized Zamperini to come forward and meet him again. Zamperini threw his arms around each of them. Once again he explained the Christian Gospel of forgiveness to them. The prisoners were somewhat surprised by Zamperini’s genuine affection for those who had once ill-treated him. Most of the prisoners accepted copies of the New Testament which had been given by The Gideons.
For his 81st birthday in January 1998, Zamperini ran a leg in the Olympic Torch relay for the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. In March 2005 he returned to Germany to visit the Berlin Olympic Stadium for the first time since he competed there and met Adolf Hitler.
.
Torrance High School’s home football, soccer, and track stadium is now called Zamperini Stadium, and the entrance plaza at USC’s track & field stadium was named Louis Zamperini Plaza in 2004. In his 90s, Zamperini continues to attend USC football games and befriended star freshman quarterback Matt Barkley in 2009.What a morning and what a joy to be able to meet with Luis Zamperini and we left with an autographed copy of “Unbroken” which we both have since read and marveled at this amazing story.
And now we are anxiously awaiting the Hollywood movie about the life of this extraordinary man who still remains “Unbroken”.

———————————————————————————————–
I read somewhere that The King’s Speech didn’t win any of the critics awards but this film subsequently went on to win at the Oscars. I agree that Brad will bring all of the passion and energy that he showed promoting WWZ to the campaign for TYAS.

Ticky had a CAA company Christmas party, that’s all. Once again all her friends are either on her payroll or work related.

Yes, both Steve and Brad (& all involved) are very passionate about TYAS, and they should be VERY proud of this masterful achievement. There are some, even seemingly “mature” Oscar voters, that might not overcome their biases and/or jealousies no matter what Brad or Steve or anybody else does. Is it right? Of course not, but it does not take away from how amazing TYAS is. It makes me really sad & angry, but I will follow the JP example and rise above it- be dignified, do good work, and enjoy life.

@Phool,

Thank you for all your inputs. You go girl. Keep on posting. All the best.
