“Just add up a couple things. There’s no such thing as ‘I was a heroin addict.’ That doesn’t exist in nature. Something is going on with [her] addiction. Or she’s in recovery. And I don’t see any evidence that’s the case. So we’ve got one person who’s a heroin addict. Which is a chronic lifelong condition, period. We have another person who has said things like, ‘Well, Jennifer [Aniston] was into long-term relationships, that’s just her way of looking at things.’ I mean, that demeaning attitude towards other people’s emotions. Now put those two people together and you have got a really volatile situation. And they’re constantly creating things to weld themselves together. Which is only going to serve to make a more nuclear eruption. There will be some sort of meltdown that will be phenomenal when it does happen.”
– Dr. Drew gives his completely random psychological diagnosis of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s relationship based on, I guess, interviews he’s read of theirs. I’m all for passing judgment on famous people, but this assessment seems based on little tidbits of info taken completely out of context. Stick to what you’re good at, Dr. Drew, which is, uh, what again? [Huffington Post via Dlisted] Keep reading »
I was pleasantly surprised by the Golden Globe nominations, with one jarring exception: “The Tourist.” Why the hell would Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp get Best Actress/Actor nominations for a movie critics have agreed is a huge stinker? The movie totally bombed at the box office this weekend, pulling in a (relatively) measly $17 million while the third “Narnia” installment earned $24.5 million. For the record, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Cop Out” had stronger openings this year. [Huffington Post]
A while back, we were totally psyched for this movie because we thought Johnny and Angelina would create some fireworks. We thought, “Will they fall in love? Could they be the next Brangelina? Oh, and there’s a naked shower scene?” But there’s zero chemistry to be found on screen. Many critics say the only thing to come out on top from the flick is the Venice tourism bureau. Keep reading »
“I do hope there will at some point be laws about how close they can get to children with cameras, because I think at some point, it’s gonna be clearer that it’s emotionally not healthy. … We try not to get them into the middle of it, but when they do, we just have to kind of smile and say, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not scary. They just like to take pictures.’ As a parent, the only thing you can do is try to make sure that they don’t feel it’s a threat, you don’t act like it’s a threat, and you just keep smiling so they don’t feel anything negative.”
—Angelina Jolie talks to Larry King about how she handles the paparazzi snapping photos of her kids. We wish there were a law against taking photos of kids too, Angie. Though it would deprive us of adorable Shiloh photos. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Is there an Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sex tape coming down the pipeline? Tragically, no. But porn producer Steve Hirsch, who runs Vivid Video and is the man behind many of the celebrity sex tapes you may or may not have seen, says that’s the ultimate Hollywood porn movie.
“Who would star in your dream sex tape?
Without a doubt, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.”
We’d watch it. [The Hollywood Gossip] Keep reading »
“It turns out we are both a bit reclusive. That’s why our paths had never crossed – neither of us attends many parties or goes out very much. Neither of us seems to take ourselves too seriously. And maybe there’s something about being in a place in your life where your family is so central to you that you have a good perspective on it all. You appreciate the work, and when you are there you focus and give it your best, and then when it’s done you go home to your family. Your life is full off-set and you have this nice balance. Johnny is like that and I’m like that, too.”
— Angelina Jolie talks with the Daily Mail about similarities — besides being insanely attractive — she shares with “Tourist” co-star, Johnny Depp. In other Jolie news, Chelsea Handler, good friend of Jennifer Aniston, went off on a bizarre Angelina tirade in a recent stand-up act, calling her the c-word and homewrecker and a bunch of other stuff, because I guess she thinks it’s, like, 2005 or something.

“I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything. She likes to dress like a boy and wants her hair cut like a boy and she wanted to be called ‘John’ for a while. Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers. It’s who she is. It’s been a surprise to us and it’s really interesting, but she’s so much more than that – she’s funny and sweet and pretty. But she does love a tie …”
– Angelina Jolie defends her “tomboy” daughter Shiloh to The Daily Mail, following ongoing criticism of the youngster’s preference for “boy” clothes and activities. I love what Angelina says about it not being up to the world to “interpret” what Shiloh’s clothes and activities “mean” — she’s a kid, for heaven’s sake. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Angelina Jolie has not had an easy time filming a love story set during the Bosnian war. After rumors circulated that the film told the story of a Serbian rapist and his Muslim victim, a group called the Women Victims of War Association accused Angie of “misleading history.” It’s unclear how large the group is, but they’ve gained international headlines for their complaints. Although she’s denied her flick tells a rapist’s love story, Angelina made matters worse when she did not include a copy of her script when applying for a filming permit in Bosnia, which is required. She tried the diplomatic route — offering to meet with the association — but they still threatened to complain to the United Nations for hiring her as a goodwill ambassador. Surely, that’s a notion Jennifer Aniston could latch onto. Keep reading »
