Angelina Jolie Gossip
Angelina Jolie gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Angelina Jolie is in Shanghai promoting Maleficent. The movie did well at the box office here. And there’s so much money over in China, she has to go get it. Brad Pitt did not join her for the trip. We’ll come back to him later. As you can see, she’s wearing another pair of those custom Louboutins that were made for her for this press tour. Full Story
How do you think Prince Charles feels today? Spain’s King Juan Carlos announced this morning that he will abdicate the throne, stepping aside for his son Prince Felipe. Felipe is 46 years old. Charles is 65. And he’s been waiting …forever.
Then again, Queen Elizabeth is decidedly more popular – at least right now – than King Juan Carlos. People are mad at Juan Carlos. And they’re mad at him about money. It’s a lot harder to get over than being perceived to be “insensitive”.
Did you have a good weekend? Angelina Jolie had a great weekend. Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent exceeded box office estimates for a gross of almost $70 million, making it her biggest opening ever. So she’s halfway there. Halfway to what? Well, there’s also Unbroken later this year. And if she can mount an award season campaign on a drama, after Maleficent’s commercial success, it’ll be another one of those I WIN AT EVERYTHING moments that set her apart from everyone else.

Angelina Jolie is …all of it. A true super star. Perhaps one of the last true super stars. A friend of mine asked me after my interview with her a couple of weeks ago, “Do the molecules in the room change when she’s in it?” Yes. YOU change when she’s in it. But for all that she is… is the Jolie also an embarrassing mom? At the Maleficent premiere the other night, when asked about Maddox walking the carpet on his own and becoming a teenager and starting to date, Angelina revealed that he has a girlfriend. Full Story

Brange at the Maleficent premiere last night. Sorry it took me so long to write about this. I’ve been waiting all day to buy those family photos – Brange posing with Maddox, Pax, Miss Zahara, Shiloh the Chosen, and Knox. But the agency is taking forever to figure it out. So we’ll come back to that in a separate post when they do. Full Story

As reported the other day – click here for a refresher – Brange was in New Orleans this weekend for the Make It Right gala. Bruno Mars was the featured performer. Can you say “no” when Brad Pitt calls you and asks you to perform? A video from the evening has been posted to YouTube, taken when Brad was called up on stage to join the band…and given a tambourine to work with. Full Story
I’m still high on Angelina Jolie. Even after a rough weekend with no sleep and two flights in less than 24 hours and 3 shoots yesterday, on top of writing the blog, I can’t find anything to complain about. And, normally, I hate everyone, everything. Yesterday I was on the phone with my friend Gab, who’d had a really sh-tty day at work. By the end of my description of what it was like being in the same room as the Jolie, and touching her hand twice, and making her laugh too, Gab’s mood had lifted too. The Jolie. No one ever had a chance.
As mentioned yesterday, moments of my Canadian exclusive interview with Jolie will air on etalk all week. Thanks for your emails about wanting more written detail about the experience, like the last time I sat down with her for Kung Fu Panda 2 in Cannes. Read Full Intro

Angelina Jolie was at a press conference for Maleficent the other day and was asked about balancing her work with being a mother. You’ve heard other celebrities complain about how hard it is for them raising their kids while making movies, ahem GOOP. Well, here’s another way to answer that question – by not bitching about it.

I interviewed Angelina Jolie yesterday. I’ve interviewed her before (Kung Fu Panda 2), but never for that long and also never alone. Makes a big difference. Like, I still feel her in my blood. And I think, I think I made her laugh. Twice. I also think, maybe, she enjoyed talking to me about feminism. But then again, I feel like maybe I’ve rewritten our entire narrative in my mind, imagined an entirely different situation than the one that actually went down. Which was, basically, me completely useless, just staring at her ridiculously perfect face. Haven’t watched the tapes back yet but I was there for etalk for the Maleficent Canadian exclusive with her so we’ll be airing the clips all week on the show, 7pm on CTV. Read Full Intro

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were in New Orleans this weekend for the Make It Right gala. I’ve attached shots of the Jolie arriving at the venue. Those might be the highest heels I’ve ever seen her wear. I’ve also attached a shot of her seated next to Brad and Chris Rock inside the event where Bruno Mars was one of the performers. Full Story

Plan B produced The Normal Heart. So Brange showed up last night at the NY premiere of the film. (I desperately want a screener for this. Is anyone listening?) As you can imagine, it was a major win for HBO that the two decided to attend. HBO President Richard Pepler was there to greet them on the carpet and the Jolie gave him a very warm smile. Full Story

No connection. I just opened up the photo agency database and saw that they were both in New York today and making the same face. So I thought I’d side-by-side the two just for kicks. Angelina Jolie is in New York and was photographed leaving a meeting today. The paps were apparently surprised that she opened the gate for herself. Full Story

How to give me a gossip boner: Brange. Any Brange. But Brange in black on a red carpet. Brad looking at the Jolie all wanty and smug. Just a hint of the possibility of Pitt Porn. But not yet. Don’t reach for the ass yet. There are two more weeks of this. Save it. Build me towards it. Full Story
