Angelina Wanted Back to Work

So much for taking time off and staying home with the kids. Last week, Angelina spoke about being a stay at home mom while Pax gets acquainted with his new life. This morning we hear that she is in final talks to join the cast of Wanted, an action adventure film set to start shooting this May in Eastern Europe. The script was apparently written specifically for Jolie, so we'd be willing to bet they gave her some pretty heavy incentive to join the film. We can only assume the whole Jolie-Pitt clan will travel abroad with her to make the movie but maybe it will be Brad's turn to play Mr Mom. As for that time off statement before, we had a feeling it wouldn't last long.

At least Angelina is unselfish and actually doing something good as a UN many celebrities do you see doing that?? Most celebrities are soooo self centered, they only care about what outfit they're going to wear next!! How pathetic..

Jolie is just the bomb and whether she and Pitt will last long it doesn't matter she will stay a great person

Somehow I canät really think of her and I in the same age.

Well, I am not sure about whether or not AJ/BP will last, but it would not surprise me to see them break up after a few years. The pic of her is unflattering. She used to look healthy. I realize she's been under stress, but still. As for BP, he is a good-looking man, but nothing about him makes me swoon. I can understand his appeal as an actor, but not as a sex-symbol. But I am biased on this because he looks almost exactly like someone I know. AJ's humanitarian efforts make her seem like a hypocrite. She is doing good things -- this I cannot disagree with. However, the way she got into the relationship with BP was not kind, gentle or considerate of others. She knew he was married, and whether he initiated things or not, she should not have opened herself to consider romance with another woman's husband. BP's humanitarian efforts are a footnote to AJ's. However, the way he handled his marriage makes him a hypocrite, too. At least he could have broken things off with JA before being seen (romantically) with AJ. Of course, no one's perfect, and it is wonderful they are at least giving the appearance of doing things they believe in.

But AJ and BP and their family ARE together most of the time regardless of what country they may be in. That doesn't matter, they're still together. I have never understood why some people have it in their minds that if you're away for more than a few months then it's a horrible thing and you're family is going to fall apart. That's not always the case, and I feel that it's a stereotypical statement towards families that do have to go through those types of ordeals. BYJKE 895 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't think the family is together most of the time. I think they don't need a lot of the money they're making. Brad and her have more than enough to give away (they are in ads all over the world, movies isn't the only source of income, he also produces movies which make him a lot of money). I don't think families fall apart when parents away (for a short time). I do think they are choosing what you call 'ordeals' because they want to and it's the kids that will suffer. She's trying to be a super human being which I believe isn't realistic, which is why she keeps getting backlash every few weeks or so. What bugs me also is she (and her partner, brad) also tend to make decisions without thinking about consequences. She once complaint Maddox can't enjoy playing outside because of the paparazzi. Well Angelina I'm sure it really helps that now his little brother is on HELLO (now both of them can't play together outside). I don't get her and brad in that department. I think what they are doing is so very very wrong to their children.
andaman andaman 10 years
I for one bother not because they are not married lickety split. I think it's actually better for their kids when they split up that they aren't married. I have nothing about different choice in that department. What I have a problem with is she lied..and lied..and lied.. Have you seen HELLO??? So much for feeling sorry about bringing the lime light to this boy's life.

people are bothered by angie and brad because they go against convention; aren't married, travel the globe, adopt often, etc. people are wanting to have their own lives validated. if this couple has a meaningful life that is TOTALLY different from their life what does that say about them? in reality all it really says is that brad and angie have made different choices. but most people like the have their choices reinforced.

Yeah she's a frigging maneater!!! I wouldn't want my man within 10km of her and that's the honest to god truth.
MisterPinkNoTip MisterPinkNoTip 10 years
Oh, and btw, i totally agree with you, nyaradzom2001. People feel threatened by her for some reason, and because of this insecurity they feel the need to hate on her (I'm sure there are people who just don't like her movies, etc, but the people who seriously get bent out of shape are ones that feel threatened).

YAY! More Angie films. The shoot might not even be very long. Who knows. I really don't understand the animocity. Whatever this woman does, people rag on her. If she is making movies, on vacation, or working abroad for the UN, people can still find something at fault with her actions. She can't win. Let it go. Some people are fans, some people can't stand her, and others are just indifferent. If you hate her that much, stay off the boards!
nyaradzom2001 nyaradzom2001 10 years
Angie gets nasty comments from women cos she's threatening. Ummm if my man was to work on a movie with Ang I'd be like you better pass it up or else. And honestly this whole women we must stick together thing just doesn't work. WE are all insecure, jealous, catty people inside of us no matter how nice we are so it just doesn't work and we care too much what the next woman thinks.
nyaradzom2001 nyaradzom2001 10 years
Hehehehe it's so funny that when the brangelina lovers get supporting posts they say great post and when the ang haters get supporting posts they say great posts. Totally kills me that even though someone might have something pertinent to say they get shot down by either team moi included. I just thought of learning algebra: the friend of my friend is my friend, the enemy of my friend is my enemy, the enemy of my enemy is my damn good friend. Loves it!!

EdwinaTheLovely, I totally agree with you because Angie is with Brad, she gets nasty comments from women. I don't understand why. I have read the Viet's paper about Angie's interview and there's no lines that she saids she would be a stay home mom. All she saids was, "I have not make any movies RIGHT NOW". It's amazing how people twisted her words and use it against her. JKe895, great post.

siouxsie, why would you care that someone you refer to as not only a b*tch, but a dumb b*tch eats are not?
EdwinaTheLovely EdwinaTheLovely 10 years
funkyfeet, it's always going to be those people who live to see it as bad every move she makes, criticize every word she utters. What's sad about it all is that if she weren't with Brad, we wouldn't be having this discusion. She could have adopted 40 kids, traveled with them on a weekly basis, be offered mountains of movies, even had a biological child and guess what? there would hardly be a negative peep. Her crime, and only crime is that she is with Brad Pitt.

Marci, Only part of her comment to a Vietnamese newspaper was printed in People magazine and then spread all over the web. Also her quotes were originally printed in Vietnamese and then translated into English. This is the original quote from the first translation: "I'm not making any movies RIGHT NOW," Jolie said in the interview. "I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life." People magazine and then all the other news outlets printed the following, leaving out the 1st sentence with the headline: "Jolie to Be a Stay At Home Mom." "I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life." This reminds me of when a few years back Angie said she couldn't see herself having a biological child RIGHT NOW but then everyone removed the words "right" and "now" and the story became Angelina does NOT want to have biological children. So in closing she didn't say she would stay at home for good or for a while but she did say right now. In the end it was People magazine and readers who put a time frame around Angie's words not she.

I think you have got a good point there. This is what I meant when I said it's difficult for people to leave them alone. She shouldn't have talked so much. Now the kids and her are suffering from backlash (again). You get what I mean?? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Actually, i don’t think she suffered a blacklash at all, in fact I think the media reacted very well to this new adoption. People are now used and they know that they will have a big family, so it was expected.

JKe895 #202 Excellent post.

she just signed so she has a lot of time for the children before production. this is actually a part of pre-production stage, nothing is set for the production. i am glad she is working 'coz she has a lot of financial responsibilities. there are so many single mothers with 3-4 kids who actually don't earn as much as angie but survives. with Angie's economy, the kids will be taken care of. I bet she and Brad with the kids will start traveling in Europe (location for the movie is out of this country). that's good -- once again they'll be away from the vultures.

Wow! I was going to comment earlier about being in the military and living away from my family and never staying in one place for more than six months to a year and how some people are able to handle it and others aren't (and if you aren't then I think that you're in the wrong job field-personal opinion), However most military "brats" as it was put are taught growing up that their lives are not the same as everyone else no matter what they wish otherwise. It's the nature of the beast and I don't think that you're able to really put up any sort of argument about it unless you have personally experienced it. I don't think that what you heard from a friend of a friend would be sufficient because things tend to be blown slightly out of proportion anyways. Being in the Military for over 4 years now and almost three of those years serving overseas by choice was the best thing that I could have done for myself or my future family. No, I don't have any children so I can't speak on their behalf or someone else kid's behalf so I'm not going to go there on that subject. I think that AJ/BP are doing (not just her, she's being aided/supported by BP) and she used to be supported by her Mother before she passed away, also keep that in mind, is a wonderful experience not only for them individually but for their children as well. It opens their eyes to the real world instead of some Hollywood faucet that you see most A-list kids become. Who cares about her movies. You don't have to have a lead roll to get a paycheck over a million or two, it's a job. But I figured that us "military brats" were tossed into this conversation that I had to uphold my end. As for the Diplomatic Community, I work with them day in and day out, 24/7 Literally, providing security. I understand where they come from as well but I am unable to speak for them. I can tell you that they are VERY comfortable and are provided the utmost education, activities, and any other extracurricular services provided (i.e. boy scouts, girl scouts, basketball, volleyball, tennis, football, soccer, etc...) and the education levels they are put through as "normal" students are equivalent to to advanced classes in a public or private school. As for what they think about it, I have no idea but if I were to have children with me at this very moment I would put them into the DOD schools provided here for a better education. Again, that's my opinion. Some Diplomats are stationed away from their families you years at a time due to their duty/job (whatever you wish to call it). Not everyone is lucky enough to be together. But AJ and BP and their family ARE together most of the time regardless of what country they may be in. That doesn't matter, they're still together. I have never understood why some people have it in their minds that if you're away for more than a few months then it's a horrible thing and you're family is going to fall apart. That's not always the case, and I feel that it's a stereotypical statement towards families that do have to go through those types of ordeals. I'm not saying in any way, shape or form that it is easy, but it's not hard. It's doable. Anyways, I feel that what they are doing for themselves, their children, and for the country heritage that their children belong to is very admirable. I would see no difference if your families took up the hobby of tracing your family tree lines. At least they're able to pinpoint theirs and help others advance. They just want some pride instilled. It would be the same as, say, being Irish and claiming that when you're only a minute fraction. To you, you're still freakin' Irish. It doesn't matter! So why should their way of showing pride and ownership in the country of their children's birth be any different? So on and so forth for which ever Country you may take pride in (I'm not meaning to step on anyone's toes). If that's not what you would do with your children then great. That's you. Just say so and be done with it. Anyways, I think I covered almost every point. If not, oh well. I've said my peace.

SmartGirl....I depise people who start a post with "I'm new, please be gentle with me," and then precede to get as ugly as those you accuse others of being. Jennifer Aniston's life isn't up for the putdowns anymore than I think Angelina Jolie's is and if you think you're going to get a pat on your back from me as a AJ fan, you're seriously wrong.
