Remember she talked it all up, that Big Directorial Debut of hers? It’s apparently about to rock. The flick is called In the Land of Blood and Honey, and is about a love affair between a Serbian male and a Bosnian female during the 1992 Bosnian war. The movie debuted today internationally, but won’t hit US theaters until December 23rd. What a nice, happy, FESTIVE movie to take in on your Christmas break, no doubt.
Seriously, though, I’m impressed. I think this looks like an amazing trailer. And what more could there be? I felt like the entire film was caught on that seemingly-long preview, and whatever’s not included has to be even better. That’s usually the way it works, anyhow.
Anyway, what do you guys think of the trailer? Is Angelina ready to make the big jump from acting (mediocre) to directing (maybe not-so-mediocre)? And isn’t it just super that Brad supported Angie so hard through this extensive process?

With all of this new Jennifer Aniston-relationship-bombshell stuff going on surrounding Brad Pitt lately, I thought it appropriate to show some photos of him in his element, i.e., with his non-wife wife, Angelina Jolie.
See, a lot of you guys had some pretty strong reactions to Brad’s recent comments about his former life with Jennifer Aniston. Some were kind of like this:
“Brad’s scum—always thought so, always will.”
Then, there were others like this:
“I really used to like Brad Pitt, but the way he and Angelina try to hurt Jennifer after all these years has caused me to change my opinion of both of them, or should I say “Brangelina”. I live in Michigan, far from the glamour of Hollywood, but I think that town and all that money has caused people to become insensitive and morally bankrupt. After Jen and Brad broke up she kept her thoughts to herself for a very long time. She showed a lot of class and courage. I think I would have been curled up in the fetal position, crying hysterically and then I would probably hunt them down and make the biggest scene ever. I am sure the police would at some point have to intervene. And now Angelina tried to get the part in a new movie starring Justin Theroux. How junior high school is that? They need to just stop trying to rub their affair in her long ago healed wound. Oh, btw, stop dragging your kids around all over the globe. They need some place to call home.”
But my favorite so far was probably this:

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.

I don’t know about you guys, but these lists always intrigue the crap out of me. These celebrity “power couples,” as they’re often referred to, bring in, like, unbelievable wads of cash annually. Jaw-dropping amounts.
I mean, this kind of money is money that I can’t even fathom having, and the craziest part is that there are people out there – both single and partnered up – who earn, like, quadruple this.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady topped the list this year, bringing in just around $76 million bucks. And that’s just the reported income. You can’t tell me that there isn’t some under-the-table stuff going on somewhere there.
The rest of the list is as follows:

Now before all the weight-weirdos get all bent out of shape because I’m not “accepting” Angelina just the way she is, let it be said that I’m not insinuating that sweet old Angelina here looks bad – at all. I’m merely saying that she’s looked <i>better in the past when she had a little bit more meat on her bones. I know she’s naturally on the slender side, but it wouldn’t hurt to change it up for this year, you know?
I still think she’s one of the most beautiful women to ever exist in the history of … existence, but ffs. She’s going to be getting up there in age at some point and women of a certain age need to take care of their bones and stuff. Hers are looking a little pointy and sharp here and there, and she looks like she’d positively shatter if she accidentally fell down a flight of steps.
Oh Angelina. I’m just looking out for you, girl. Put on a few pounds and get some Boniva, OK?

I know, I know, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been talking around the whole marriage thing forever, but this time it might be for real. See, this time it’s a little different – this time, Us Weekly reports, not one, not two, but THREE different sources have all confirmed that yes, these lovebirds ARE getting married, and they’re doing it within the next few months.
You guys know me, I’m always a sucker for weddings, so of course I’m hoping this is true. And could you even imagine what Angelina’s dress would look like? There’s no doubt this wedding would be a million different kinds of magic, right?
