Angelina Jolie covers the new issue of Vanity Fair. I’m writing this on a shoot. We’re waiting around as they build the set. Ben Mulroney and I are killing time admiring the Jolie’s face. We have very different taste. But all tastes, most tastes, I think they intersect at the Jolie’s face. This is a timeless face. As I’ve said so many times before, in 500 years this face will still be a standard of beauty. It’s not that there will be a time in any era where someone would look at this face and say, goddamn she is an ugly f-cking bitch. No.

The article focuses primarily on her new movie which she wrote and directed In The Land Of Blood And Honey but also conveniently timed for the release of her partner Brad Pitt’s Moneyball. Oh what a team. She talks about how she approached being a director, how she felt about the script and the material, blah blah blah. Can we just look at the picture? Because the picture…

It’s Miss Zahara and Vivienne! Their faces obscured but their identities are obvious. Sarah Jessica Parker put her kids in a recent photo shoot too. So… what are you giving us? You give us a little, we’re going to want more. I suppose their argument is that their children get papped so much anyway. Of course it’s debatable whether or not that’s by design, depending on whether or not you’re a Brangelunatic.

It’s a heavily retouched image, certainly. But I love it. I love Miss Z’s hair. I love Viv’s chubby little feet in flipflops. I wonder what it would be like to make a chip out of that grass. It’s part 2 of their W photo shoot. You remember that?

Going back to the content of the interview then… with pictures like these… unless of course as noted you’re a Brangelunatic, who cares? That’s the distracting point. Especially when they put the most important detail - not getting married, not pregnant, and not adoption (for now) - at the top.

And it’s a great tease. Are there more of these when the magazine hits newsstands on September 6th? They’ve sold me. I want to know. I want to see. September 6th is also just two days before Moneyball screens at TIFF. These two are a f-cking machine.
