It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Angelina Jolie (and THOSE LIPS!) in the Oscar-winning role of Lisa in the 1999 film “Girl, Interrupted.” But Parker Posey recently revealed she turned down an audition for the role. ”What I did pass on that may surprise you is ‘Girl, Interrupted.’ The Angelina Jolie role … I just didn’t care enough about it. I don’t know. There was something about it. They probably wanted me to audition and I didn’t feel like doing it, or maybe they wanted me to jump through hoops and I didn’t feel like doing it,” Posey said. ”Honestly, I just didn’t care about it enough to be grounded in it… And she won the Academy Award! Isn’t that funny?” [Contact Music]

I hear you, Shiloh. Halloween costume shopping sucks. If you’re uninspired, you’re uninspired. It looks like Vivienne found something she could work with — a pink unicorn smock thingy. We know that bullshit’s totally not your style. [Photo: FameFlynet]
“She’s still naughty in sexual ways. I mean this is not exactly an Angel of Mercy.”
– Brad Pitt inexplicably blabbing about his sex life with Angelina Jolie in the New York Post. We know Angie is kinky, but this is the first time he’s indicated — that “angel of mercy” comment — that she might be the more dominant one in bed. (Which, if Brad Pitt is into that, would certainly explain why his marriage to Jennifer Aniston fizzled out. I can’t really imagine her getting her Christian Grey on.) Anyway, these two lovebirds need to stop gushing about their amazeballs sex life publicly — their kids are old enough to read! No child wants that mental image. [NY Post] [Photo: WENN]
Angelina Jolie has always appeared to be very close to her brother James Haven. Sometimes a little too close- like at the 2000 Oscars when she very passionately kissed James in front of the masses. What ensued was a hailstorm of controversy as the two laughed off the notion of having an incestuous relationship.
According to the latest issue of GLOBE, Angie has picked James to serve as Maid-of-Honor when she ties the knot with Brad Pitt. Read more…
So get this, everyone. Brad Pitt was in London recently to promote his new film “Killing Them Softly” and he was nice enough to play with reporters who kept asking him about his upcoming nuptials to Angelina Jolie. And he answered! Us Weekly says that Brad, when asked about his wedding plans, said, “No plans yet, other than we’re going to do it.” He also gave some potentially hilarious “details” of the wedding, suggesting that since George Clooney ”doesn’t believe in institutions” (or at least the institution of marriage!), he couldn’t really be best man, but he could “seat people” at the wedding. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Especially if Jen came. And George sat her. And they fell in love … okay, I’m getting waaaay ahead of myself. Read more…
Angelina Jolie is fighting mad at her future mother-in-law, Jane Pitt, over the letter of support Jane penned to her local paper for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
In it Jane revealed she does not support President Barack Obama’s leftist, far out ideas of abortion or same-sex marriage. This is a blatant difference of opinion from the vocal Angelina and Brad who have said they would not get married until everyone in the country had the rights to do the same.
Apparently, for Angelina, not everyone should have the right of freedom of speech, so in her frustration with Jane, she has decided to educate her. Read more…
