Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie still keep in touch

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie were a match made in WTF-ness from the go, and it’s no surprise that their relationship didn’t last all that long. However, the split must’ve been pretty amicable, because apparently they still keep in touch all the time… according to Billy, anyway.

From YourTango:

YourTango: Are you in touch with Angelina?
Billy Bob Thornton:
Oh of course, yeah. She’s amazing, amazing. She’s got so much energy and so much goodness in her, and we check in on each other all the time. She makes sure I’m doing okay. I make sure she’s doing okay.

LOL, okay, how high on the bullshit meter is this one? I have nothing against Billy Bob and I’m sure he’s a lovely guy, but I just can’t see this one being true.

Angelina Jolie and Stella McCartney are making kids’ clothes together

Angelina Jolie is about to start killin’ it (literally?) in the new live-action Disney adaptation of Maleficent, and what better way to capitalize on a movie she already made millions on than by releasing costumes for kids to go along with it?

That’s right: Angie and designer Stella McCarthy

The line is aimed at kids from 4 – 14 years old (I’m sorry, but no 14-year-old is going to wear that shit) and includes sandals, t-shirts, princess dresses and sneakers. The cheapest thing in this range is $75 and the most expensive is $185, which is INSANE. Sorry, kid. I’m not spending $185 on a piece of shit you’ll rip, ruin or get tired of in a month’s time. No thanks.

From WWD:

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Disney growing up, as was my mother, and I grew up watching all the films like most kids did,” said McCartney, who has collaborated with Disney in the past with a costume jewelry line for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010 and who featured Disney characters in her fall 2009 ad campaign. “When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.”

I love Stella McCartney – her clothes, her perfume, sign me up. But this is some serious bullshit. They’re kids! I know I’m not really the target consumer, considering I’m not filthy rich nor do I have small kids, but damn. I’m sure it’ll sell like hotcakes, anyway. They should have did this shit for Frozen – really missed out there.

Angelina Jolie will undergo further surgery following her double mastectomy

As you’ll well remember, Angelina Jolie underwent a voluntary double mastectomy last year after discovering that she would most likely be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her life. No doubt it was a difficult choice to make, but a brave one, and she’s bounced back well following the procedure. While she initially decided not to publicly discuss the situation beyond her initial statement, she recently revealed that she’s due to return for another procedure.

From Entertainment Weekly:

There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t yet [Jolie is also genetically at risk for ovarian cancer, which is what took her mother’s life at age 56]. I’ll, you know, I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who I’ve been talking to, to get through that next stage.

Jolie also said she has no regrets about her decision to undergo the mastectomy:

I’m great! I’m very happy I made the decision. I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken [the World War II survival story she is directing] to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work.

Good for her. It’s great that she’s been able to be such a vocal spokesperson for such a common issue, and great that she’s recovering so well and has such a positive attitude about what must be a very difficult situation.
