Angelina Lets Her Guard Down, Just A Bit, to Ann Curry

Earlier in the week we got a peek at Angelina talking about avoiding the media coverage of her life in her exclusive new interview with Ann Curry to promote A Mighty Heart. This morning's Today Show aired a portion of the interview, and after watching the clip, I must say that I was impressed by how poised Angelina comes off, even when reduced to tears talking about her mother. On that difficult subject, "I'm at a strange place in my life. I think that that happens when you lose a parent — you drop into a different kind of serious. And yet, at the same time, you want to enjoy and laugh as much as possible every day...I'm holding onto my family really tight at this moment because of that. And trying to be as good a woman as I can be in my life." Check out the clip here and watch the full interview tonight on Dateline NBC.

I agree, LeeLee28. And besides, how long ago was that? People need to get over it. I wish people could maybe focus on issues that are important to Brad and Angelina and become more globally aware instead of worrying about other stuff...

I recommend you to read the community rules just like I have done.

since there are some inflamed characters on here, one of whom asked that a previous perfectly reasoned response (smile, folks) be deleted, my response above now makes no sense. well, those are the breaks sometimes. hah!

just as i thought. you really can't take it, can you?

i wasn't at all angry when i posted, just dismayed and annoyed at the quality of the comprehension displayed in comments to this blog. One can always skip the comments or argue in a constructive manner instead of being aggressive hey. If you don't like the quality you can always read a different post also.

SO you can have the last word I don't mind. I am logging off now. Bye

andaman: i've read your posts in their entirety. what part of them do you think i've misinterpreted or in any way misunderstood? specifics would be helpful. also, personally, i think you have a pretty loose characterization of "going off" and "losing it".

Really people. Happy people don't cheat. FACT. If you are truely happy with your partner, David Beckham himself can throw himself at you and you wouldn't touch him (well, maybe he is a bad example :-D) Anyway, as someone that has gone through a divorce, trust me, the marriage is over LONG before you announce it to the world. AJ walked into his life at a time when he was obviously ready to move on. It happens. Can you really stop yourself from falling in love? And more importantly, why should you? If your marriage is over, and you are lucky enough to meet someone that completes you... I say go for it.

That's all I can say to that, I think one should always read the whole post carefully before one starts going off on one. Bye

naturally, the kind of mature and reasoned response one would expect.

let's be clear: i've never once denigrated, derided, scorned, disparaged, impugned, maligned, attacked or otherwise "slammed" ja. i mentioned ja only as an aside, and only in the context of stating that the demise of her marriage to bp should be lain at his feet and hers.furthermore, as i said in my original post, i AM NOT a bp fan. i stated quite clearly that i am solely an angelina fan. one has to be a fan of both and of both of them together to be a brangelina fan. that said, i don't question anyone's right to bring up ja -- bring her up until you make yourself sick. what i do question is your sincerity in calling yourself her fan when, by YOUR bringing her up, you continuously subject her to the kind of dialogue and associations of which, AS SHE HAS STATED, SHE WANTS NO PART.

Ilek:Tate and JA were not married or engaged, people break up, but there was no serious committment there like a marriage. AJ broke up one engagement and one marriage. JA - 0 AJ - 2. Her track record is horrible compared to JA.

A little political tidbit. When posters say that American's share some responsibility in the present problems in some African countries, you are speaking about American politicians, right. As most Americans have no control over who our Allies are, nor who our political officers are "getting into bed with". I just wanted to state that. Also, alot of the problems stem from tribal issues, which actually isn't the fault of "Americans". But actually of Europeans and that little thing called Imperialism, in which European countries actually set up their own boundaries...which took place LONG before America became the super-power that it is today. I believe Imperalism took place in the 1860s...you know when America was going through that little thing called a Civil War!!!

Isn't so funny how brangelina fans can bring up JA but when that gets question by other people they say leave JA out of it.ZZZZZZZZZZZ whatever..weak premise if you ask me.

Andaman, I agree with you completely. Angelina thrives on all the attention. She has to or she wouldn't be blabbing about all this private stuff to magazines and TV shows.

I think she is being sincere but yeah sometimes she's almost TOO poised. Anne was a bit much for me actually. But i think she was smart in that while interviewing a celebrity she made it all about the celebrity and appealed to angies more selfish side... poor angelina etc how do you deal how how how!? Appealing to a celebrities vanity is a good way of getting them to let their guard down around you. smart. But yeah a lot of what angie said was really great. As much as im not a huge fan, it was a good interview and she seems like a very good person.

to all ja fans: if you truly appreciate, respect and admire her, why not abide by her wishes?? she has publicly stated how upset she is at being constantly associated with the triangle that is herself, bp and aj. so, ja fans, why constantly drag her into, and bring her up in connection with, associations and discussions she clearly wants no part of? for ja's sake, just stop it.

Celebs who choose to speak about the private "constantly" always suffer in the end. If you have "given in" to the public's curiosity about your personal life then don't moan and moan about paps following you. You make a choice about how you want to raise the box office and that should not involve your own children (and I'm not just talking about the brangelina here).
