Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Makes YouTube Video About It

Angelina+Jolie

Dearest Angelina Jolie has come down with a case of the chicken pox, and she wants everybody to know it. So she posted a video on YouTube about it, which seems kind of odd, but since she’s missing a few events, I guess she didn’t want anyone to get alarmed about why she might be absent, so she made it clear in the video.

You can sort of make out some spots on her neck and chest area, and aside from that and looking a little tired, she still looks utterly gorgeous. I mean, of course she does, she’s Angelina Jolie. She can’t not look gorgeous, even if she does act like a “spoiled brat.” If she ever looks un-gorgeous, that’s a sign that the world is ending. Mark my damn words.

Of having the pox, “I just can’t believe it,” she laughs. “But such is life, there it is. And send everyone my love.”

Angelina Jolie is a spoiled brat, according to Scott Rudin

angelina jolie

Alright, this is long and complicated (and fascinating to read in whole so if this interests you, go have a look), but the Sony hack has done more than leaking a few movies early. It’s also leaked private emails between industry big-wigs and shed some light on just how they carry on behind-the-scenes with each other.

Let me set this one up: Producer Scott Rudin, often reported to be an absolute dick, proves himself to be just that in conversation with Sony Picture co-chairman Amy Pascal. Basically, Rudin was going to produce Jobs, a Steve Jobs biopic, and he really wanted David Fincher to direct it. However, Angelina Jolie is good friends with Fincher and had him attached to her Cleopatra, despite the fact that the script for that film hadn’t yet been written. Also, she just really didn’t want Fincher on Jobs, for some reason. Rudin had an absolute meltdown over it and things got nasty.

Here are some of the exchanges (via E! Online)

“YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS,” Rudin wrote in an email in Feb. 2014. Pascal, apparently sensing a threat, didn’t respond lightly, which caused the fight to completely explode.

“Do not f–king threaten me,” she wrote. “I have been asking you to engage with me on this for weeks.”

After that, Rudin loses it completely, attacking both Pascal and Jolie.

“What the hell are you talking about? Who’s threatening you? Let me remind you I brought this material to you and I can off her from it in a phone call. Don’t for one second even think about trying this s–t with me. There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity and rampaging spoiled ego of this woman and the cost of the movie is beyond me) and if you won’t tell her that you do not like the script—which, let me remind you, SHE DOESN’T EITHER—this will just spin even further out into Crazyland but let me tell you I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.”

The two Hollywood honchos go back and forth, with Pascal throwing some serious shade herself, writing, “I have asked you to talk to [Jolie] with me and you don’t want to deal with it,” among other insults, but Rudin almost ends it with his fire.

Here is an excerpt from Rudin’s lengthy email in which he refers to Jolie as a “spoiled brat”:

“I’ve told you exactly how I want to do this material. It’s the ONLY way I want to do this material. I’m not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m ego bath that we both know will be the career-defining debacle for us both. I’m not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a movie. I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and that we don’t. She’s a camp event and a celebrity and that’s all and the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb with her that any fool could see coming. We will end up being the laughing stock of our industry and we will deserve it, which is so clearly where this is headed that I cannot believe we are still wasting our time with it.”

This all ended with Rudin threatening to make sure Pascal is ruined in Hollywood (and claiming that she had already destroyed herself over this very insignificant matter). Jobs is not off the ground even now and I don’t think Sony wants anything to do with it anymore. It’s all a mess.

Obviously the big takeaway people have been getting here is that Angelina got called a “spoiled brat” and basically had major shit talked on her. Is she a spoiled brat? To be honest, it sounds like that’s more like Rudin’s role. I do love the juicy drama, though – Gawker has a great round up of it all in more detail. Juicy!

Angelina Jolie’s kids drew on her wedding dress

angelina jolie brad pitt wedding

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have always insisted that their decision to get married – and the wedding itself – was all about their kids, who were really into the idea. It seems that’s actually the case, as Angelina donned a pretty interesting dress when she tied the knot with Brad last weekend.

Here’s the scoop from US Weekly:

In the first photos, on the new cover of the UK’s HELLO! magazine, the happy bride affectionately kisses her now-husband Pitt.

“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family,” Brad and Angelina told the mag.

As previously reported by Us Weekly, the couple wed in a small intimate ceremony in a chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. “It was a non-denominational civil ceremony,” a spokesperson for the couple told Us in a statement. “It was very much a family affair.”

A family affair indeed. Not only did Jolie’s dress feature artwork drawn by kids Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, the children were also active in the nuptials.

Jolie walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne “threw petals, gathered from the garden,” the spokesperson previously told Us. “Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.”

Aw, well that’s sweet. I think it’s extra sweet that they really did do this for the kids and would have been perfectly fine not ever getting married if it wasn’t for them. I do think they will be together for a long ass time – like, think Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins time (they were the best couple EVER). I dunno, I just think they work!

Oh, snap! Shit just got real! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been teasing the world with their impending (but seemingly never arriving) nuptials for what seems like ages, but it’s really happened! They got married on Saturday and now they’re officially husband and wife!


I mean, this is actually the sum and total of what we know about this grand event, but that’s good enough for us. Despite the fucked up way their relationship came about all those years ago, you can’t stand in the way of true love and they do make a fantastic couple. Congrats to them!

Angelina Jolie was horny in an elevator one time

angelina jolie pat o'brien

Poor Pat O’Brien. The former Access Hollywood host has so little to talk about in his new memoir, I’ll Be Right Back After This, that he’s used a “story” about Angelina Jolie being horny in an elevator to try and sell copies. Wasn’t that just Angelina Jolie’s thing in the ’90s? Sorry, not gonna make me buy it.

From The Daily Mail:

Pat opens up about the incident, which he claims took place in the lift of posh Beverly Hills hotel L’Ermitage, in his new memoir I’ll Be Right Back After This.

He apparently bumped into the superstar in 2002 when she was freshly single after splitting from husband Billy Bob Thornton.

‘I said, “What’s up baby?” And she said with a wink, “I’m trying to find this guy I kind of know because I’m really horny right now,”’ Pat recalled.

The now 66-year-old, who had interviewed Angelina several times before their rumoured encounter, went on to write: ‘I joked that she had my number and we laughed.’

Kewl story, bro. Also, LOL at him thinking he was at all in with a chance. I guess he had to try.

In any case, no amount of salacious stories you can tell me about Angelina Jolie will ever shock me or make me think she’s got some secret life or any of that bullshit. She is untouchable – leave Saint Angelina alone! We all know she used to like her drugs and weird sex kinks and was a hot ass mess back then. So what?

Newsflash: Angelina Jolie used to do a lot of drugs

angelina jolie

There seems to be a major ¡Escandalo! going on in Hollywood at the moment since a man claiming to be Angelina Jolie‘s former heroin dealer has come forward trying to sell his story like it’s news. Add to that the fact that a video of a very strung out Angelina in the ’90s has just been leaked, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for hysteria. Never mind that Angelina is an incredible woman, parent, human being and humanitarian now – look how strung-out and skinny she looked! Look how many drugs she once took!

From The Daily Mail (of course):

Her eyes are bloodshot and hollow, her arms emaciated and scratched.

Pacing about her living room, Angelina Jolie picks at her skin with her filthy fingernails as her self-proclaimed drug dealer films her in a rambling phone conversation with her father.

Astonishing video footage has surfaced of the Oscar-winning actress looking anything but the internationally acclaimed humanitarian and one half of Hollywood’s most glamorous couple.

Convicted drug dealer Franklin Meyer claims he shot the 16-minute footage with Jolie’s consent in 1999 after she called him round to her Manhattan home to re-supply her with heroin and cocaine.

Jolie has since described it as a ‘dark’ and ‘dangerous’ period of her life which she was lucky to survive.

In the video, first released the video to The National Enquirer, the Maleficent star paces back and forth in a dingy apartment as she talks frantically on the phone.

The television is on in the background as Angelina appears to be in a state of distress as trash bags and soda cans litter the floor and coffee table.

Here’s the video in question, to save you the reading:

I mean, was she on drugs here? I think that’s pretty clear. Is it a revelation? Not particularly, unless you want to look at it this way: This is a woman who openly admitted that she went through really tough times and was in a “dark place” for a good chunk of her life, who managed to pull herself together and become a really admirable and respectable human being. The only thing this video makes me feel is pretty in awe of just how much she’s turned her life around. Good for her.

Angelina Jolie’s kids are planning her wedding to Brad Pitt

brad pitt angelina jolie

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been teasing the world with the possibility of a big wedding for years, but so far, it seems we’ve all been waiting in vain. Not for long, though – Angelina says the couple’s kids are in charge of planning the whole affair, so it’ll end up being Disney or paintball. HOW ABOUT BOTH?

From People:

“We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be,” Jolie, 38, who stars in the new film Maleficent, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding.”

“They will, in a way, be the wedding planners,” she says of Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5. “It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!”

That’s cute – and great that they’re getting the kids involved, though there are no surprises there given that really Brangelina are only getting married because the kids have been asking for it. Still, really cute – I kinda love them as a couple.
