Angelina Jolie Gossip
Angelina Jolie gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
It’s Dame Angelina now. Queen Elizabeth made Angelina Jolie an honourer Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George on Friday on a Birthday Honours list that also included Daniel Day-Lewis, Maggie Smith, and Damian Lewis. Some of you complained. And I would agree with you – that she’s a Hollywood star, and an American, and sure she just came off a busy week for the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict but there are non-famous heroes who deserve recognition and crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby – but, you know, talk to me when you’re finished bitching about the guy from Homeland.

Look who else showed up at the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict today. Amal Alamuddin, the human rights lawyer. Amal Alamuddin, the really smart, really well-educated, really well-respected barrister specialising in international law. Amal Alamuddin, appointed to a number of UN commissions including adviser to Special Envoy Kofi Annan on Syria and Counsel to the Inquiry launched by UN human rights rapporteur Ben Emmerson QC into the use of drones in counter-terrorism operations.

You know when professional athletes arrive at the arena and they’re required by the league to be dressed in business attire? It looks good. Really good. To see them walking in a group, sometimes with their headphones on, in their custom cut suits and their game faces on. I would rather this than athletes posing for underwear campaigns. Full Story

Here’s Angelina Jolie on the second day of the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict. As you know, the summit started yesterday. And you know who showed up to support? No. Not a member of the royal family. Well, maybe rock royalty. Stella McCartney. She posted this on her Instagram Full Story

The Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict kicked off today in London, hosted by Angelina Jolie and William Hague. Delegates representing over 140 countries are expected to attend and find ways to implement actionable solutions to prevent further atrocities. “Every year, 150 million girls and women are raped in conflict around the world, along with 70 million men and boys, and the overwhelming majority of them never get justice.

What did you do this weekend? Was it an Orange Is The New Black weekend? Jacek was in Montreal for the F1 leaving me at home, alone, with the dogs. And OITNB. SO f-cking good. And how am I relating them to Brange? Brange, Maddox, and Miss Zahara were at LAX this weekend. As you can see, Angelina is wearing the dreaded kitten heel. Full Story
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.
