The heart-shaped 11-acre island features not one but two Frank Lloyd Wright residences and a helipad. At $12.2 million, that is some Christmas gift. [Daily Mail UK, Private Islands Online]

Crazy. It’s been over a decade since Angelina Jolie, then married to Billy Bob Thorton, brought home little baby Maddox from Cambodia. And now the 12-year-old son of Jolie and partner Brad Pitt (who officially adopted Maddox as well in January 2006) is grown up enough to walk the red carpet with his famous parents at the Governor’s Awards in Hollywood this weekend, where Angelina was receiving a humanitarian award. Lookin’ cool, Maddox! But I must admit, this just makes me excited for the day my girl Shiloh is old enough to attend such a glam event. You know she’d rock the hell out of a tux too.
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s character poster release, we’ve got ahold of the first trailer for “Maleficent.” Angelina Jolie stars in this new-perspective retelling of Disney’s 1959 take on “Sleeping Beauty” based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, in which the Mistress of All Evil places a slumbering curse on the beautiful Princess Aurora. What do we think? Will 135 minutes of Elle Fanning‘s grating faux-English accent effectively drive us insane?
We’ve all been waiting with bated breath to see the first images of Angelina Jolie as the Mistress of Evil. Behold the first “Maleficent” poster. Angelina revealed that ever since she “was a little girl,” Maleficent has always been her favorite character. “I was terrified of her, but I was so drawn to her. She had this elegance and grace, and yet she was so cruel. Just wonderfully and deliciously cruel,”said Jolie. If she works the part like she works those leather horns, we should be in for a treat. We’ll see tomorrow when the first trailer for the film is released. [E!Online]
Angelina Jolie’s every move — at least the ones we see — is scrutinized, so it comes as no surprise that already people have noticed that the famous mama/actress/director is sporting new ink! In Australia to begin filming her latest movie and directorial project, Unbroken, Angie’s been spied with her whole brood of six kiddos several times since late last week. But this morning, she was photographed strolling solo by the waterfront in Sydney this morning “quietly debuting” her huge new tattoo, according to Us. Read more at The Stir…
The universe always feels a little out of whack to me when the Jolie-Pitt kids are laying low. That’s why I get so excited when Brad or Angelina brings their brood out into the light so the rest of us can bask in their awesomeness, if just for a second, via paparazzi pictures posted on the internet. Yesterday, Angelina and the six little-ish ones flew out of Los Angeles for who knows where, probably one of their castles somewhere, and all seems to be well. Pax is still shy, Maddox is growing into a too-cool-for-school teen, Shiloh is still being Shiloh (dig the “Star Wars” shirt, Shi!), Zahara is as fierce as ever, and the twins are resembling their gorgeous mom more and more every day. And all is right with the universe again…
Sorry, Brad, but my interest in “World War Z” would best be described as minimal to nonexistent. My interest in the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, however, regardless of the occasion, is totally tops. Seriously, Angelina should just be strategically placed in every single movie. Box office numbers would soar. I paid money to see “The Tourist,” for fuck’s sake.
When Angelina Jolie revealed her choice to have a preventative double mastectomy, celebrities fell all over themselves in their rush to call her courageous—but not Melissa Etheridge. In an interview with the Washington Blade last week that apparently just got noticed by the celebrity media, Etheridge—a breast cancer survivor herself—says, “I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.” She says she, too, carries the breast cancer gene mutation that caused Jolie to make her decision.
