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.
Sorry, Brad, but my interest in “World War Z” would best be described as minimal to nonexistent. My interest in the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, however, regardless of the occasion, is totally tops. Seriously, Angelina should just be strategically placed in every single movie. Box office numbers would soar. I paid money to see “The Tourist,” for fuck’s sake.
It has been so long since we saw all of the Jolie-Pitt kids together (I guess it can be hard to take all six out at a time), that I practically shrieked with joy when I saw photos of the entire family out celebrating Angelina Jolie’s 38th birthday. It’s been so long, I felt the need to annotate the photo so you can keep track. First of all, look at how dressed up and adorable Zahara looks? Love. And Maddox! Maddox is approaching sullen teen territory I can tell. Look at him trying to go all incognito. Knox is gettin’ in the way of his twin sis Vivienne, and Pax ain’t havin’ all of this attention. As for my beloved Shiloh? She is clearly distracted by some taxidermy in that window. Best family! [Photo: Splash News]
“I’m quite emotional about it, of course. She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don’t think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger. … [It has been] an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months. And I’ll tell you, it’s such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a spectre hanging over our heads. To know that that’s not going to be something that’s going to affect us. My most proudest thing is our family. This isn’t going to get that.”"
In a stunning New York Times op-ed piece, Angelina Jolie revealed that she’d recently had a double mastectomy. The actress and mother of 6 revealed that she’d considered the procedure after finding out that she carries a mutation in her BRCA1 gene, which greatly increases a woman’s risk for both breast and ovarian cancers.
Thanks to the gene, “my doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman,” she writes. Keep reading »
If you’ve spent much of your life jealous of Kirsten Dunst for getting to kiss Brad Pitt in Interview With the Vampire, this may make you feel better: She didn’t actually enjoy it. In a recent interview about her new movie,Upside Down, she revealed to Bullett magazine that she, as an 11-year-old, found the whole thing pretty gross. “He had this long hair. He was just a hippie-ish cool dude. Everyone at the time was like, ‘You’re so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,’ but I thought it was disgusting,” she says. “I didn’t kiss anyone else until I was 16, I think. I was a late bloomer.” Read more…
Angelina Jolie looks like she could be married! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may have forgone all the glitz, glamour and exclusives to magazines by simply marrying in secret. On Friday, the U.N.

Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt are children of the world, so you know soccer is football to them. The eldest sons of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were snapped playing at a park in Burbank this weekend, a huge relief to me, as it had been a while since their spawn had been spotted out and about. But let’s be real … I need a Shiloh or Zahara photo opp ASAP. I miss those girls like whoa. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Did you know that Spanx, the infamous shape wear company has a line of menswear? Neither did I but apparently Brad Pitt is in the know! Supposedly the actor has been a fan and uses the undergarments to help suck in the extra pounds when he has to step out on the red carpet. According to a Star magazine article Brad is grateful to have the garments on hand, but I have to wonder if this is yet another of Angelina Jolie’s ideas. She seems to be super critical of everyone around her, including Brad. I could just see her throwing the thing at him and demanding that he put it on! Read more…
