    Come on. She knows people would want to see her try to do what she’s getting paid for. It’s like that guy who was gonna be swallowed by the snake.

    Now if Jolie had said this she would be labeled minimal talent, spoiled brat! Oh wait she was for trying to get the best director etc., for Cleopatra.

    I saw the Good Girl and I’ve always said that she needed to put the RomComs on hold and find something meaty to do. Good luck to her.

  • LittleDistraction

    as a “new film maker” ..not really..I would not cast her in anything not that I don’t think she is ” cute” but I don’t want that ” oh I am a huge star breaking out look at me” attention on my work. I don’t think celebrities belong in a solid independent film although I do understand the money draw game. Having said that, I am just not interested in her position on much of anything.

    Congratulation on your Golden Globe and SAG nominations Jennifer. Oscar nomination next..? You have proved that you’re not only beautiful but also talented.

  • jilly

    Jolie was called that by Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal, two of the biggest Hollywood players! It’s actually quite embarrassing for her, that’s why she’s faking chicken pox and probably would never be in Cleopatra :)

  • verity

    can’t wait to see the email about Jennifer aniston

  • Joy B Angie

    There are many healthy talented actresses
    in the Hollywood to act Cleopatra.
    Without hug veins and with attractive body.

  • verity

    because cleopatra is about body and veins (lol)
    the most stupid comment of all time

  • Joy B Angie

    We are talking about the movie,
    so Cleopatra is about healthy look
    and inner power.
    Can drug user have an inner power ?
    I don’t think so.

  • jilly

    All I can say is that their idol, the minimally talented woman is not going to be Cleopatra, I don’t care what its about.

  • jilly

    Funny, there isn’t anything negative about Jen, sorry to disappoint you verity!

  • jilly

    No, it’s about acting and they need someone highly TALENTED for the role, LOL

  • jilly

    Posts do disappear Joy B!
