We’re nearing the end of Bisexual Health Awareness Month: a time set aside by GLAAD to focus on issues that specifically affect those who identify with the B in LGBT. We still have a long, long way to go before we reach equality for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and one glaring issue in our culture is bi erasure. All too often, people who call themselves bisexual get hammered into ill-fitting cubbies labeled “straight” and “gay”– and it happens to celebrities all the time. Here are 10 famous names that we all need to associate with bisexuality on The Gloss…
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are so brave to allow this pack of wild common folk into the sanctity of their personal bubble. The lady in the inset photo looks like her face is permanently frozen into a “ZOMGBRADANGELINATOUCHEDMEICANDIENOW” expression. I hope it returns to normal eventually. [Photo: Splash News]
Y’all know I have a special place in my heart for the Jolie-Pitt kids.

Shi and Zahara shared big sis duties, taking turns holding Knox’s hand. Click on for more pics (because I can never just download one).
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?
