Angelina Jolie may just be the best gift-giver in Hollywood. Last year, she gave fiance and baby daddy Brad Pitt a freaking waterfall for Christmas. It had never occurred to me to want a waterfall before, but now I do. I’m not sure how much a waterfall costs, but I imagine it costs less than the $1.6 millllllion Jolie just spent on a helicopter she gave Pitt for no other reason than being hot and awesome and hers. I wonder what she’ll give him next? A private island? His own space shuttle? His own planet? [Newser]
Celebrities are famous for their lavish spending habits. When it comes to holidays and birthdays, most of them — like Jolie — spare no expense for their famous friends and loved ones. From Mediterranean cruise tickets to a Rolls-Royce Phantom, here’s a glimpse at the other luxurious gifts that celebrities have showered upon their friends, family, and employees.
Billy Bob Thornton takes the blame for the failure of his marriage to Angelina Jolie in a new “Nightline” interview. “I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her.

The outlandish accusations after the jump. Keep reading »
Angelina Jolie, despite the fact that she was not a nominee, was the talk of the Academy Awards. There was the whole Leg Thrusting Debacle — the actress was quite dramatic about using the high slit on her dress to display her right leg — but the blogosphere was also exploding with comments and questions about her weight.
