Angelina Jolie is playing Disney baddie Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) in a new film. Calling it now, this is gonna be the halloween costume of 2014. The first teaser trailer is here, so check it out!
Is it weird that I lump this film into the Grace Kelly
and Princess Diana
biopics? Yeah, it’s weird. I think I’m actually going to see it, and I don’t really care much for Jolie. (I’m not anti-Jolie, I just don’t really give an eff.)
What about you guys?

I’m not sure that I’d be all that interested in learning the nitty gritty details about Angelina Jolie‘s personal life, but it turns out we might soon have the opportunity because word on the street is that she might soon be signing a $50 million deal to write a memoir.
From The Daily Star:
At least three US publishers are locked in a battle for the rights to her autobiography.
A source at one confirmed: “Whoever gets her will be sitting on a gold mine.
“Her book is guaranteed to top the bestseller lists in virtually every country on the planet and even an advance of that size would be recouped within weeks.”
A close pal said: “She has always wanted to do this and believes the time is now right.”
The friend added that since Jolie announced she had undergone a double mastectomy in February “she has never known such peace and fulfilment in her life. There are demons in her past but she is in a place mentally and spiritually where she feels comfortable enough to write about them honestly and put them in context.
“No issues – apart from those that might damage her children’s privacy – will be taboo.”
Hmm, I guess she has had a pretty interesting background, especially in her wild days, so maybe I would read this after all. I actually don’t know that it’ll happen, but it could do quite well. Would you read it?

Angelina Jolie wore a new ring on her wedding finger, so obviously she and Brad Pitt got married in secret. Yeah, and Jennifer Aniston is pregnant. Come on now. No way Brad and Angie could get married in total secrecy without anyone finding out less than 5 minutes after. Unless they did it in their house, with an officiant and one witness, I don’t see how it’s possible. E! Online is on ring patrol and isn’t saying one way or another.
At this point, I don’t think these two are ever going to married. And that’s fine.
What do you think? Do you think it will ever happen? Do you think it already has?

This is probably my favourite story of the day because it’s hilarious and insane. Apparently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are at odds over a few potential wedding guests, namely… Jonah Hill and Quentin Tarantino? Brad wants them there, Angelina says no way in hell – what will happen? Oh wait, I forgot to add that Philip Seymour Hoffman isn’t welcome, either. Now THAT one is cold as ice. I can see Jonah because he’s an asshole and Quentin is a bit insane, but why not Philip? He’s getting clean! Angelina, noooooo!
From The Sun:
The actor’s missus has banned him from inviting some of his heavier-drinking pals to the bash.
Angelina has given strict instructions for JONAH HILL, QUENTIN TARANTINO and PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN to be left off the list of invitations in case they get too leathered.
She has also warned that his best friend GEORGE CLOONEY needs to control his wine intake at the nuptials.
A source said: “Angelina wants the whole affair to be very civilised and is concerned about the habits of some of Brad’s more raucous friends.
“She thinks that if Jonah and Quentin come, they’ll hit the bar early on and cause a commotion.”
Brad’s pals aren’t the only problem being ironed out before their big day – the couple are also disagreeing over who should be best man.
Angelina is keen for her brother James to have the gig, while Brad thinks his brother Doug should take on the role.
Either way, they should definitely hold back on any Dutch courage before the wedding starts.
First of all, no one tells the Silver Fox to control his wine intake. Second of all, this story is so great because it’s so regular. I love the idea of Angelina giving Brad a hard time about the wedding guests. Ugh, God help me, I’m totally starting to love Brangelina. :(
I guess we’re supposed to applaud Brad Pitt for thinking Angelina Jolie is still sexy even after undergoing a double mastectomy (and possibly having her ovaries removed, as well), and indeed it’s wonderful that he’s so ~progressive~ and supportive and they’re still totally into humping on each other despite their busy schedules, their 8,000 kids and having been together for a while. That’s true love, y’all.
I sort of feel bad for Brad, in a sense. He’s been promoting World War Z and all anyone seems to want to ask him on the red carpet is about how Angelina is and how he feels about what she’s done, etc. Indeed, Angelina’s experience and her openness in sharing it is courageous and wonderful and I’m so glad it’s started a dialogue in the wider world. But also, she’s stopped talking about it and declined to give interviews, so what makes people think that Brad feels like giving soundbites on something his wife is done discussing?
Brad was nice enough to humour some journalists on the red carpet for World War Z‘s Los Angeles premiere last Thurdsay, where he said the following (via People):
“She’s getting ready for World Refugee Day” this Thursday, Pitt told reporters on the red carpet, while Jolie was in Los Angeles.
Asked to describe his feelings about Jolie after she publicly announced her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy, Pitt replied: “She has always been the brave, bold individual that I fell for – and sexy as ever.”
Well, that’s great – and I mean that. But now that’s enough. STOP ASKING THEM ABOUT THIS.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are easily one of the most hated celebrity couples ever, right? Radaronline polled a whole mess of people and compiled a list of 14 celebrity couples that people absolutely hate and Kim and Kanye didn’t even make the list! Shocker! These lists are based on pretty much nothing, but they’re so fun; from the most hated celebrities to the ugliest male celebs, I know I like a good stupid list.
I don’t think these are actually in a particular order, in terms of most to least. The first ones on the list are Rihanna and Chris Brown. Who are the rest?Click to find out.
Jennifer Aniston will be forever linked to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, so I hope she and the soon-to-be Mr. Aniston are okay with that. Even Debbie Reynolds brought up the legendary love triangle in an interview she did with The Sun. She likes the Anison/Pitt/Jolie mess to her own legendary love triangle. From The Sun:
I wish I could have been more enlightened at 18 and learned more about men because I could have avoided all the traps.
My first husband ran off with Elizabeth Taylor. A light suddenly dawned. He was away working in New York and staying at the same hotel as Elizabeth. So I phoned her room — not his.
He picked up the phone so I said: “Eddie, do you mind rolling over and telling Elizabeth I want to talk?”
He started denying it, saying: “Don’t be silly.” Then I heard her say in the background: “Who is it, Eddie, darling?”
I stood no chance against her. I was just like Jennifer Aniston with Brad Pitt when he fell in love with Angelina Jolie. If Angelina wants someone, then that is that. Certain women have that power. What chance did I have against Elizabeth, a woman of great womanly experience, when I had no experience at all?
… Men cheat in all sorts of ways that I could never have imagined.
Ouch. I get what she’s saying though. But ouch to her and ouch to bringing Jennifer Aniston into it, even though it’s totally the modern day retelling of the Reynolds/Fisher/Taylor mess. Jolie is sooooooo Taylor in so many ways. Just total movie star glam. Oh and Debbie Reynolds also talks about f-cking:
I wish I had enjoyed more sex. I have only ever slept with my three husbands and one friend — and he was my one and only good lover. I was a virgin when I married my first husband, Eddie Fisher, and I was stupid and innocent. You did not get pregnant, you did not screw anyone, you did not have affairs. I was raised to think that if you behaved badly with men, you went to hell. I realize now it is puritanical and not very adult.
What a bummer to live like that.
(L to R: Eddie Fisher, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds.)
