I still can't believe that she's sincere, even when she's promoting some humanitarian or human rights cause with world leaders. Something about her seems "off".
the late night Angelina troll strikes again.
She's a homewrecker!!!!
I think they broke up eons ago even before Leg-Gate and have been faking it ever since. Mostly because neither would ever admit they did anything wrong.
Just think of how long she's been doing charity work. It's over a decade. She does it in places a lot of other celebrities don't even know exist. If she's faking it - and I don't think she is - then she is very, very persistent.
I don't think she and Brad are together anymore either. Doesn't anyone have the goods on this around here?
Alex Jones is nuts but he maybe on to something. Don't trust that manipulative bitch.
People have been saying the same crap about her for years. Its a bizarre broken record. She is obviously taken seriously by the UN humanitarian crowd because she is speaking at the G8 summit. She was promoted to Special Envoy a title usually reserved for ex Heads of State. Madonna must be shitting herself with envy.
As for her and Brad unless she is pregnant people say they are broken up . Chances are they will split eventually but its a bit ridiculous how some are waiting with baited breath for a split that is probably not going to happen until the children are grown.
I don't care about Angelina Jolie anymore. She lost her soul as an actress and she maybe considers herself as a super woman who can save the world. If she wasn't a humanitarian people would trash the hell out of her.
She is very beautiful and i respect her a lot as a humanitarian though. She is a good actress but she plays in non-human movies for a long time now. By 'non-human movies' i mean that she always plays the strong woman who charms with her power and that's not very discreet of her.
In the beginning Angelina was incredibly human and sexy. Now she is only humanitarian and an unreal sex symbol. You can't approach that plastic picture people gave her and dream with it. She seems to embrace that image and i think that if she let it go she will collapse. She hides herself behind her numerous kids, Brad and behind her work as a humanitarian.
I must say it again though. What she does as a humanitarian is heavenly good and she is a very beautiful woman. She is frustrating in other aspects though. You win some you lose some...
*she will always play
Shut up Gwen!
There are people who will hate Angelina no matter what she does. She lives her life on her own terms. She hasn't killed anyone and she's not perfect by any means. I respect what she does on global issues, because I personally think it's important. She wouldn't be invited to the G8 summit if she didn't have respect from these ministers. She must know something about the issues she's championing. She cares and that's all that should matter.
She gained weight, looks great!
Her twin daughter looks like Johnny lee Miller
She's an empty vessel obeying the orders of her handlers, the "Powers That Be" (...on the way down).
More imperialism, cultural and otherwise, more empty people we are ordered to worship.
Honestly, there isn't a lot of Angelina gossip, because she doesn't have any friends, and has no contact with her family. She latches on to a man, and he becomes her world. There have been rumors of her hooking up with Billy Bob lately though.
Batshit crazy and her drug use is showing.
Excellent post, #11...and I'm in total agreement.
I'm not going to watch Alex Jones spittle filled rants. Someone sum it up for me please. It sounds like this could be the most exciting thing about Angelina. She bores the shit out of me otherwise. Even during her "crazy" period. Just so boring. Pretty though.
I think she is way crazy and a complete famewhore. I bet she is only doing these charity works to get involved in politics, because she wants to land a high level politician. She may also into some drugs, she looks very thin and a bit malnourished.
She's a whore, darlin'
Batshit crazy Female First posters need to realize this isn't the place for their obsession.
I don't pat that much attention to her as I find her mainly a famewhore, but if I had to choose, she's a little bit cra cra...
Angelina is a responsible person and parent.
I'm with r11. And she has plenty of contact with ter family - she was very close to her late mother and close to her brother. Now that her dad has alzheimers, she looks out for him, too.
Jon Voight does not have Alzheimers, in fact, he's got a pretty great memory.
I admire Angelina's dedication to women's rights--she puts her money where her lovely mouth is. Of all of the celeb 'humanitarians' out there, she is the least phoney and does the most good.
And she is a bit of a loner, why I don't know. So many people would love to spend time with her but she is very inclined to just hole up with her children for a long time.
She truly loves her children.
If bringing attention to humanitarian crises is "famewhoring" then it's an oddly productive type of famewhoring. Someone alert Kim Kardashian.
[quote]By 'non-human movies' i mean that she always plays the strong woman who charms with her power and that's not very discreet of her.
And what does this even mean? That whole post is a mess. The grammar queens must have the day off.
I think Angelina has been very traumatised by her experiences--wouldn't you be?
She grew up in a Hollywood family during the seventies, so imagine all of the activity she witnessed, heard about, or was warned about.
The Hollywood ninety-seventies was all about irresponsible behavior and hedomism. Many children were exposed to sexual situations and drug abuse. I'm not saying this ever occurred in her family--I'm saying it was in the business, everywhere.
Then add to that her worldy encounters with war and human suffering and I'd say this lady has seen it all. I feel for her. She may even have PTSD from it all.
Angelina Jolie is a very heroic person in many ways.
I've made $84k so far this year working online and I'm a full time student. I'm using an online business opportunity I heard about and I've made such great money. Earning potential with this is unlimited. Here's what I do, Wow55.com
While I admire what she's doing there is still too much "Look at me! Aren't I a saint? Watch me as I travel the globe doing good works! Watch me as I take my children to the art supply store! Watch me as I provide wine for the people! Look at me!"
I'm with[R11]. I admire her. Sure she's made mistakes. We all have. She seems committed to her humanitarian efforts and doesn't seek out publicity. She's famous and uses her fame for good causes. Good for her.
Why are there so many reports that Jon Voight has early alzheimers?
I love her - my friends who work at the UN love her. She is very low key, well informed and professional.
She's become a bore, and overexposure has ruined her acting career. She can no longer play relatable human beings, she can only do star turns.
She has also been looking quite unhealthy lately, and not just because she's underweight.
[quote]There have been rumors of her hooking up with Billy Bob lately though.
He once said sex with her was like screwing a sofa. Would be interesting though if they did hook up. I always liked him as an actor although I think he is batshit crazy.
Angelina Jolie, beautiful stranger behind Afghan school
By Sardar Ahmad (AFP) – 14 hours ago
QALA-I-GUDAR, Afghanistan — At a school in a bombed-out Afghan village near Kabul, Angelina Jolie is known as an aid worker or engineer -- never as one of the world's most famous film stars.
Jolie, a special envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, built the school in Qala-i-Gudar last year and is planning to open more in Afghanistan with profits from a newly-launched jewellery line that she has designed.
The Hollywood star visited Qala-i-Gudar in 2011, and she retains an avid fanbase among residents who have never seen any of her films and have no idea about her global fame as an actress.
Acting is controversial in the country, with many conservative Afghans associating it with un-Islamic behaviour and even prostitution.
Homaira, aged 13, is one of 250 pupils at the all-girls school who has benefited from the new facilities, which opened for their first full academic year last month.
"We used to study in the backyard of the mosque, it was hard," Homaira told AFP. "Now we are so happy to have a school. It's a beautiful place."
Asked who built her school, Homaira smiled and answered, "the beautiful American lady."
The two-storey building, 30 kilometres (20 miles) north of Kabul, has large windows and neat rows of desks. On the outside, which is painted light blue, is a plaque proudly boasting of its founder.
"Through the generous contribution of Angelina Jolie UNHCR Special Envoy," it reads.
Even headmaster Gul Rahmman Ayaz appeared ignorant of Jolie's superstar celebrity, apparently believing she was a senior UNHCR official.
"Is she?" Ayaz asked doubtfully after learning Jolie was an actress. "Well whatever, she is a great woman, very kind woman," he added with a smile.
Ayaz recalled Jolie visiting the mosque's open backyard, which at the time served as a classroom, and sitting cross-legged with villagers discussing her plan to found a modern school.
"She was very humble. She sat on dust. She didn't behave like a movie star," Ayaz said, remembering Jolie arrived in a UN-marked vehicle and wore a modest black outfit and brown headscarf.
Sabera, the school's only female teacher, believed Jolie was a reconstruction expert sent to build schools in Afghanistan as it struggles to emerge from decades of war that left the village in ruins.
"I thought she was an engineer," said Sabera, 30, who like most Afghans uses only one name. "I have never seen her movies but I hope she comes back."
Under the hardline Taliban, who ruled Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001, cinema was banned and girls were prohibited from attending school.
Qala-i-Gudar was on the frontline in fighting between the Taliban regime in Kabul and Northern Alliance forces.
Today Afghans have a huge appetite for cinema, though they prefer the melodrama and music of Bollywood fare to US blockbusters.
Officials say millions of children, about 40 percent of them girls, have returned to school -- one of the key achievements of the billion-dollar international aid effort since the 2001 US-led invasion brought down the Taliban.
But, according to Kabir Haqmal, head of public affairs at the education ministry, half of the 10.5 million students still study in the open air or tents, and 50 percent of about 200,000 teachers are unqualified.
"Anyone investing in Afghanistan's education is investing in the future of Afghanistan," Haqmal told AFP. "I know this school was built by Angelina Jolie and we appreciate her work."
Jolie, partner of Brad Pitt and star of the Lara Croft movies, has a long record of humanitarian work and told the E! News website that she hopes to fund more schools from the proceeds of her new jewellery line called "Style of Jolie".
In Qala-i-Gudar, as in much of rural Afghanistan, there is little access to television. Out of a dozen girls interviewed by AFP, half don't have a set at home. Another has one, but says "the aerial has been broken for a year".
She's a famewhore, a narcissist and a junkie with an eating disorder. She was happier when she was just openly a crazy, junkie slut.
R11, there is no one in politics who respects Angelina Jolie or takes her seriously. She's appearing at the G-8 for show, which is the sole reason she and other celebrities are ever invited to "work with" the UN.
Why is it that it is only Aneglina that you guys slam when she tries to do good?!?! While the other celebs parade about their so called good causes and you gays don't seem to have a problem with it at all?!?!
I agree with R36. Nobody really takes her seriously. She didn't even graduate from high school. She could have went back to school and earned a degree in something. Do you really think that people in the UN who have been dedicated scholastically since youth take her seriously? They all hold advanced degrees. They tolerate her because they want her money and press.
Don't get your panties in a twist, R37, and stop lying. Go check out the Madge/Malawi threads. Go check out the Gwynnie threads.
Go check out the Any Goddamned Celebrity You Can Name threads. As far as I know, only Patty Duke is universally loved on the DL and someone will come along and say something cunty about her now, just to prove me wrong.
Jonas Salk would get trashed on the DL, for vaccine famewhoring and baldness. Get over it.
I doubt people in the UN who work with folks from 'developing nations' or what used to be called 'third world countries' give a shit about whether the person they are dealing with earned an advanced degree. In some countries people are dying and can't get educated. Working on those 'third world' problems is more important than if you earned a 'college degree'.
It's like what we used to call book smart versus street smart. In some circumstances 'book smart' (in regards to getting a diploma) is unimportant, while street smart and savvy keeps you alive.
" She could have went back to school and earned a degree in something"
Is this sentence an example of what your educational experience has engendered, R38?
[quote]If bringing attention to humanitarian crises is "famewhoring" then it's an oddly productive type of famewhoring.
This type of reasoning is far too complex for most DLers.
Agree with R36 Everything she does is PR for her.
I have my opinions but R8 has stated them better.
+ She is not exactly a laugh riot.
R40 obviously doesn't have a degree.
Why is the Jennifer Aniston Hen Club still hanging around on DL?
She's my most admired celebrity
Any actress who still has a vestige of sexuality is reviled on DL. Only the post-menopausal are worshipped.
It's very, very strange.
I have a friend who is convinced that Angelina is high-functioning Aspergers. She has all this evidence to support it, from her eating disorders to her lack of female friends to her obsessions, brutal honesty, weird tendencies, etc.
She's pregnant, due in July.
Kind and generous woman. Fine actress. What R11 sayid. Living life on her own terms. That is threatening and confusing to the flyovers.
I hope [R50] is joking. That is disturbing if true.
"Why is it that it is only Aneglina that you guys slam when she tries to do good?!?! "
Interesting question, and I think the answer is that there's a perception her "charity" work is insincere and self-serving. IMHO that's true of absolutely any celebrity, they're all after publicity and self-esteem boosts, but she seems to take it all to a higher level than her peers.
Perhaps it's the disconnect between her "bad girl" image and her demands to be taken seriously, or the contrast between her life of decadent luxury and the poverty of the people she gets photographed with. That's enough to make her look like a Hollywood phony, without even getting into the nastier rumors about her.
R49 she also stammers sometimes when not rehearsed, like in interviews. And says she was very shy and awkward as a child. AS often displays more mildly in women and they are rarely diagnosed, instead usually diagnosed with other things (anxiety, schizoid, OCD etc)
In any case I don't think she is "neuro-typical."
Angelina Jolie graduated high school early - at 16 - and later attended NYU for a while.
She is quite bright.
I don't think that she is insincere in her good works or in desire for her own global family.
I do suspect that she is attempting to control or atone for something dark inside from her past.
She is an easy target and I have been know to take a few shots. They are just so strange, the Jolie-Pitts, on the streets or at an Awards Show. She seems somehow very removed, maybe fragile, but her haughty beauty, wealth and lack of humor makes her hard to feel much for.
Audrey Hepburn was a serene global child ambassador and Mia Farrow a prolific brood hen, but can you really do both? Simultaneously? I think her kids are gonna pay for their mother's obsessions.
she's fake. It's the truth. She's obviously very fake, and self centered, lonely woman. She doing charity work,because she wants to feel better, about herself. She's fucking selfish woman.
Meh. I liked her better when she looked like Vampira and said crazy shit all the time, but good for her for her charity work and spurring women to test for breast cancer, etc.
Lovely carriage: a lady.
R57 is a fucking nutcase. I know a lot of fakes, and none of them are willing to spend millions of dollars and travel hundreds of thousands of miles (to war zones) just to make it seem like they're caring.
