It must really suck to be Angelina Jolie. All of the swanky magazine covers, and all of these adorable kids that follow her around and idolize her, and then you have that man of hers, Brad Pitt, who earns just as much as she does. Ugh. I just couldn’t imagine waking up to him morning after morning after morning, could you? Jeez. What a downer. Plus to be so wildly attractive and sought-after for films. What a bleak, awful existence.
Angelina was interviewed this time for Vanity Fair, where she talked about her fame, her family, and her future with Brad Pitt. On constant speculation of the star’s every move:
[Despite recent reports, Angelina Jolie assures Vanity Fair contributing editor Rich Cohen that there is “no secret wedding” in the works for her and Pitt.] “I’m not pregnant. I’m not adopting at the moment.”
On how writing and directing her own film (The Land of Blood and Honey) changes the way she views other directors:
“Brad thinks I’m going to be a nightmare. I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.”
On Brad’s “help” during the script-editing process:
“He’d come in and say what he liked or what he didn’t understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things. He’s been so supportive. But it’s hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don’t think he’s a fair judge. People will judge for themselves. I think if you make a good movie people walk away arguing.”
Here’s another photo from the shoot. I mean, isn’t this picture just awful?
See? Case and point. Poor, poor multi-talented, grossly gorgeous, and unfathomably blessed Angelina. What a life it must be, friends.
