OMG, I’m excited for a lot of things about motherhood, but breastfeeding is definitely not one of them. I know it’s important and helps the kid get good nutrients and bond with the mother and stuff, but the thought of an unpredictable mini-person sucking on my nipples kind of makes me feel funny. Hey, do vegans breast-feed? Is Alicia Silverstone going to breast-feed her kids?
Okay, I just did some research, and it appears vegan moms have to breastfeed, because none of the grocery-store baby formulas are truly vegan. So, in some weird way, having your baby drink your breast milk is the only way to truly raise a vegan baby. Okay. So. Then, if I made cheese out of human breast milk, would it be vegan? Someone get Alicia on the phone. I may be onto an enormous untapped market. I mean, I know people have made breast milk cheese (example here, but it’s in French), but have they ever marketed it as vegan? See, mom? That MBA wasn’t for nothing after all.
What the fuck was I even writing this about?
Oh, yeah. Angelina Jolie said breast-feeding the twins sucked, and I believe her.
“It’s very hard,” the actress confessed on Britain’s morning show GMTV. “I stopped at three months, [it was] about as much as I could do.”
The actress, 33, who was in London promoting her film The Changeling with her partner Brad Pitt in tow and their four-month-old twins, Knox LÃ©on and Vivienne Marcheline, said she even resorted to manuals on the subject.
“There’s this football hold â€“ it’s a lot harder than it looks in the books,â€ she says in the prerecorded interview at her London hotel on Monday. “I did that a few times. I would take turns. It just takes a long time.”
The mom of six also revealed that it was while filming The Changeling that she became pregnant with the twins: “We decided to start trying in the beginning, and by the end I was.”
Look, if Angelina can’t do it, it is officially impossible. Because we all know that she is better at everything than anyone else.
You know what else is kind of sad? A few years ago, I would have been all like, “Oooh, I want to try to make babies for months and months with Brad Pitt.” But Brad’s lost a lot of his allure since he got with Angelina. He’s become less of Mr. Bradley Pitt and more of Mr. Angelina Jolie. I dunno. I think of him less as a sex symbol now. Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s just something that occurred to me.

Brad and Angelina don’t appear “uncool” in the least as they arrive hand-in-hand for a private screening of The Changeling in London.
After the jump, find video footage of an interview Angelina did with BBC radio yesterday. I love how whenever people spend time in London they wind up with a hint of a British accent. It’s inescapable!

After the huge success of Troy in 2004, Brad Pitt is teaming up once again with director George Miller to do a film adaptation of Homer’s other famous epic, The Odyssey.
However, the plan is not to pick up where Troy leaves off, the way the poems do, but rather to set The Odyssey in the future.
I guess we’ll find out.

Answer: Yes. I would rather see photos of Lindsay Lohan “breastfeeding” Samantha Ronson.
But, until that happy day, W magazine is preparing to release a 21-page spread of photos Brad Pitt took of Angelina Jolie letting those twins lick all up on her twins.

There have been reports that Angelina Jolie is in counseling to help deal with feelings of poor body image since giving birth to twins Vivienne and Knox.Â Bravery was apparently the theme of the day as she attended the Changeling movie premiere withÂ my husbandÂ Brad Pitt.Â Poor thing had to be seen publicly in a size 8 dress.
She’s hot, she’s skinny and I have no idea how she looks this way three months after giving birth to two kids.Â I haven’t been that thin since I was eight.Â If she is fat, I stand no chance.

Papa Pitt has donated $100K to the fight against California’s Prop 8, which aims to overturn the Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage legal in the state.
“Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8,” Brad said Wednesday.
More than just donating money, Brad’s helping to draw attention to this proposition, which has gotten sort of lost amidst all the Presidential hoopla. But it’s on the ballot and it’s IMPORTANT.
Californians, get your asses to the polls and vote AGAINST this hateful BULLSHIT. Hopefully this proposition will be defeated by a landslide and send a strong message that at least some parts of this country believe that all people should have, ya know, equal rights.
