Evangeline Calls Angelina an "Ice Queen" — Snub or Sweet?

Evangeline Calls Angelina an "Ice Queen" — Snub or Sweet?

Evangeline Lilly has ruffled a few feathers with comments she made in the June issue of Women's Health. Evangeline cited Angelina as a role model for keeping her personality private, telling the magazine, "No one knows that woman; she's a complete ice queen, which is perfect . . . Why should she be any more? She doesn't owe us anything." She also said,
"Sure, I'd love to be her, but just the [humanitarian] side." It was all presumably meant to be a compliment, but at the same time, it seems a bit harsh. So, tell us — were her comments snub or sweet?

I hate Evangeline Lilly for no good reason.

It was kind of a backhanded compliment, but I think that it is completely right. It was her opinion of Angelina and she shouldn't be faulted for it. She worked a compliment in there!

it's obvious she didnt mean it as hateful. I think when people are wanting to be hateful, it's VERY clear that want to be..

I've read the whole article in Women's Health (I'm a subscriber) and the statements above are just snippets of what was said that make is SEEM like she's trying to snub Angie. In the full context (like what was posted from People), she's saying she doesn't want to be too famous/caught up in the insanity, which is something Evangeline has reiterated on a number of talk show appearances as well. I'm not a huge fan of Evie's--she does often come across as being full of herself--but this statement is completely being taken out of context.

It's hard to tell unless you actually heard her voice when she said it. Also the way she answered the question may have a lot to do with the way they asked the question. The press is always trying to pit (haha no pun intended) against Angie. As if she in anti woman or as if all women are jealous of other beautiful successful women like we are a bunch of petty hags or something. I don't give much credit to magazine interviews ore hold most celebrities to them.

*I mean, she was saying Evangeline Lilly was the one who wished to be uglier so men wouldn't hit on her.

I read this and was like, "okay, she doesn't want to be Angelina." Fair enough.

when you read the full article that someone posted, it makes much more sense. i don't think she was being insulting. it could have been phrased better. but angie DOES have an icey persona when she's in public....i'm sure i would too!

I think Evangeline is right on with her comments. If the journalist is steering you towards the question if you would like to be like the Hollywood "leading lady" Jolie how can you respond while keeping some integrity and without burning any bridges? You try to find something you admire in that person or their life and state that. Evangeline Lily is the female leading role in the series "Lost" for the person here who keeps on asking. Maybe she was just being sarcastic, but here you go. She gets to play some real steamy scenes with Josh Holloway. I'm a little jealous.

Haven't you ever heard of "creative editing" in the magazine bizz? Just because words are in print, doesn't mean they came out of her mouth. What sounds more titillating/scandalous: the "ice queen" remark or "she's enigmatic..."? - Unless it's a "live" interview (Charlie Rose, Ellen, etc) & I hear it from the celebrity's mouth... Then & ONLY THEN will I question the "offensiveness" of said remarks. And only because of the content. In the end, it's nothing to do with us but between those INVOLVED.

Haha Jengal ummm no. I gave up Voodoo along time ago. I might put a hex on her though. I am a Wiccan now. :D (JOKING^^^^) Evangeline Lily is an idiot plain and simple. I mean if she was trying to insult Angelina just do it out right and if she was trying to compliment her then the phrase "ice queen" is clearly never been used in a complementary way and she knows it. She should have thought before she spoke.
