“I used to cut myself or jump out of airplanes, trying to find something new to push up against because sometimes everything else felt too easy. I was searching for something deeper, something more. I tried everything. I always felt caged, closed in, like I was punching at things that weren’t there. I always had too much energy for the room I was in. … I went through a period when I felt my film characters were having more fun than I was. It might partly explain why I ended up tattooed or doing certain extreme things in my life. [points to a tattoo on her arm] The wild heart caged. I unlocked my cage years ago. I want my children to have that freedom. I want that for other people, too.”
— Angelina Jolie proves even the world’s (disputably) most beautiful woman has identity crises like the rest of us. I mean, minus the jumping out of airplanes. [Parade] Keep reading »
It’s good to know that celebs like Angelina Jolie have real hair challenges just like the rest of us — like fighting summertime frizz.

“[Shiloh] likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers … Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”
– Angelina Jolie talks about daughter Shiloh’s masculine style, which was criticized in the tabloids, and the personalities of her other children during a Vanity Fair interview. Um, but we think she forgot someone. What about Pax? [Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
“I’d love to [co-star with Brad again]. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked. When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen. Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other, so it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.”
— Angelina Jolie in Vanity Fair. Au contraire, Ms. Jolie! I think I speak for much of the movie-watching population when I say: more sex scenes with you and Brad! Think of it as an extension of your humanitarian work. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Did you hear—Angelina Jolie will play Cleopatra in an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster. Talk about type-casting, Angelina is the perfect fit for the part with her strong facial features and universal beauty. We predict Cleo-mania will ensue with the film’s release, and since it’s the season most closely resembling the Egyptian climate (um, summer, we think?), we figured we’d get a head start and take style inspiration from the ancient legacy. After the jump, some beauty products (eyeliner obligatory!) and accessories to help you get the look. Keep reading »
