Angie and Johnny are already filming “The Tourist” in Venice, and it looks like the film’s hairdresser has decided to snip some bangs (and added fresh highlights?) on Miss Jolie’s ‘do. Do we like? Those big, curled bangs are awfully hard to pull off, even if you’re one of the most beautiful women in the world. Then again, they’re more flattering than, say, a blunt little Dutch boy style. To get the look, ask a stylist to cut bangs that frame your face, and use a large barreled curling iron and a bit of hairspray to piece them into place. Just like ya did in junior high.

Personally, I don’t understand why people keep hating on Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler. They’re all, like, “She’s desperately throwing herself at him!” And then they’re all, like, “He’s a total cad!” The latter I buy, but I don’t quite buy the former. Although, who knows.

OK, maybe it feels a little like Jen is taking revenge for that W spread Brad and Angie did when Brad was still with Jen and which, supposedly, helped tear Brad and Jen asunder, but … whatever!

It’s official. Angelina Jolie has signed on to play medical examiner Kay Scarpetta in an as-of-yet untitled movie based on Patricia Cornwell’s 17-book series. Cornwell is pretty pumped about the choice. “When Angelina came out of the left field last year, I was floored,” she said. “Angelina had pithy things to say about what she wanted to do. She was direct and goal-oriented.”
However, the fans of the books—let’s just say they’re not too happy. They say that, for starters, Angelina is far too young to play the character who is 40 to 45 on paper. Not to mention that while Angelina is exotic-looking, Kay was described as an All-American beauty. Originally, Jodie Foster was approached to play the role. After she refused, many fans seemed to be rooting for Elizabeth Mitchell, aka Juliette on “Lost.” One fan summed it up, “Angie is all wrong to play Kay.” [Los Angeles Times]
