Angelina Jolie Universally Panned In Red Carpet Return

I don’t know why fashion gurus are so mad Angelina Jolie! She looks just fantastic to me. I guess after you jump on the red carpet and do something outlandish like Jolie did rock one leg… Remember that stem of stunt?

Suddenly you have to keep topping yourself over and over again… Like I said, Jolie looks amazing…

While everyone buzzed about Jennifer Lopez’s decidedly Angelina Jolie-like exposed leg at the Grammys last night, the originator of the style was just across town making her own major red carpet debut. That’s right, folks, Angie’s back on the style scene for the first time this year!

But the actress didn’t quite return to the red carpet with a bang — it was more of a thud, actually. To attend the American Society of Cinematographers annual awards shindig, Angelina opted for a gray Atelier Versace sheath, nude pumps and — the icing on the boring cake — a ponytail. Our reaction? Zzzzzzz.

It’s not like we expected the mother of six to pull out all of the stops for the relatively minor appearance, but she really didn’t give us much to work with here. Plus, she arrived without her two red carpet staples: Brad Pitt and an exposed right leg.

Fine, Angelina, be all withholding. But next time, we’d appreciate some Hollywood waves or something. What do you think of her debut look?

Angelina Jolie Fancies the Funeral Parlor Business

300px Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie Fancies the Funeral Parlor Business Would you expect anything different from Hollywood’s so-called bad girl? Angelina Jolie told NY Daily News that she would have gone into the funeral business, if acting didn’t work out for her. NY Daily reports that Jolie told Bob Simon on 60 Minutes, why she wanted to work in the funeral biz: “It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with his funeral… how somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn’t work out that was going to be my path.”

She says that she’s lucky to be alive, and that her partner Brad Pitt has somewhat tamed the bad girl in her. “I’m still a bad girl, I still have that side of me…it’s just in its place now…it belongs to Brad. Or…our adventures.” On surviving the dark phase of her life: “I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them. I didn’t die young. So I am very lucky. There are other artists and people that didn’t survive certain things.”

 

Vanity Affair Interview Starring Angelina Jolie

This August issue of Vanity Fair magazine, starring Angelina Jolie, will be available on newsstands in New York and L.A. on Wednesday, June 30, and nationally and on the iPad on Tuesday, July 6…or you can see it bootlegged on the internet somewhere! Continue scrolling down to read Angelina’s interview!

“No, I’m not pregnant,” Angelina Jolie tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Rich Cohen, from the set of her movie in Venice, Italy. Perhaps in the future? “We’re not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”

Jolie says she and Brad Pitt also are not “against getting married,” but “it’s just like we already are. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It’s for life.”

Despite her dedication to her work, she thinks she won’t do it much longer: “It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.” Jolie says this reassessment is mostly due to her family: “Because I have a happy home….I got back from work last night, and everybody was playing music and dancing and I suddenly found myself dancing around with a bunch of little fun crazy people.”

Jolie talks extensively about her children, explaining that “Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”

Jolie says that when she was growing up she was most like her daughter Shiloh: “Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer…. I used to get dressed up in costumes and jump around. But at some point, I got closed off, darker. I don’t remember anything happening. I think you just get hit with the realities of certain things in life, think too much, start to realize the world isn’t as you wished it would be, so you deepen. Then, as I had kids and got older—being goofy, lighter—it all came back.”

And what does Angelina think of Brad’s strange, wispy beard? “I love Brad in every state.”

Elsewhere in the article she talks about a range of topics.

On what Brad has been up to in Venice:
“He sculpts and designs. He makes furniture, sculpts things related to houses. Traditional male.”

On Brad with the kids:
“I keep telling Brad he owes me. He’s had a few months off in one of the most beautiful cities in the world with the children. And he’s such an artist and goes to the stone yards and the art exhibits, and loves being in such a cultural place.”

On a potential Mr. & Mrs. Smith sequel:
“People have tried. And it’s strange: do we have kids in the movie? We’ve thought about that, but it becomes personal now that we actually have kids. And if we work on it, we pull from our own life, which is funny to us, but you feel strange sharing too much. We did ask somebody to look into Mr. & Mrs. to see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn’t anything original. It was just, Well, they’re going to get married, or they’ve got kids, or they get separated. Never great.”

On co-starring again with Brad:
“I’d love to. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked. When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen. Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other, so it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.”
