Angelina Jolie Talks Foreign Relations in NYC

Angelina Jolie is still hanging out in NYC, only this time she took a break from promoting Changeling to speak at a symposium on international law and justice at the Council on Foreign Relations. Angelina always manages to remind us of her dedication to social work along with acting, though we're still thinking about hearing her talk about falling in love with Brad and adopting another child. Her face is a welcomed one around here, but as always the real question on our minds is whether or not there's a mini Jolie-Pitt(s) sighting in store for us over the weekend.

Ginger the owner himself stated to a UK newspaper that it was leased for 60 million, ~~~~~~~~~ No, he didn't. If you consider Los Angeles their base, in the 3 years the Jolie-Pitts have been together they have moved house primarily for Brad's work [Canada, New Orleans, NYC, Texas and Berlin] than for Angie's [India, Prague and Chicago], yet you blame Angie. Why? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Angie didn't look at the camera and smile when Billy Bob said they boned in the limo she looked away and hid her head and said "Oh no." I don't even think BBT was serious. You haters act like Angie committed some crime in her youth. She wasn't even wild by Drew Barrymore or Tatum O'Neal's satndards.

I understand that argument, but doesn't anyone wonder what happens with the kids that are already there? EXACTLY the point cherry! Yes, all those kids have each other to PLAY with, they have buddies because they have so many siblings, but they don't have PARENTS. Or the parents they DO have are spread so thin how could they even BEGIN to give the attention to these kids that they need. But, my thought is I'm going to be a little less vocal, becuase in 10 years or so, we're going to start seeing what the product of this type of parenting is, and I doubt it's going to be pretty.

I agree, we only get glimpses of their lives, out of context. The questions interviewers want to ask and write about probably aren't what's most important to the celebs they interview. Old bits of information swirl on the internet years after it was relevant. Not a good foundation to get too worked up over. Now to look for some Newman's Own chocolate. I must have some somewhere in the house....

"Unfortunately, being reasonable on a Jolie post doesn't seem to be appreciated by some (not all) people here." I think for some, there is no such thing as "reasonable." :ponder: Oh well.

You also made good points, Ginger. Hey, I was an only child, so what do I know? Big families are very foreign to me. Bottom line is we don't know anything about these people, other than what they say to the press. They might just say things to create a certain image and be completely different in their "real" lives. I try not to judge, but sometimes a comment a celeb makes just rubs me the wrong way and I let a comment or two slip.

Well, Ginger...you've made very good, reasonable points in your comments. Unfortunately, being reasonable on a Jolie post doesn't seem to be appreciated by some (not all) people here.

A lot of people do dumb and weird stuff when they're young, especially when they were, as Angelina has openly admitted, quite troubled. And then they grow out of it. That doesn't make them bad people. It makes them...grown-ups. :shrug: If we were to judge everyone based on the strange stuff they did in the past, I don't think anyone would be immune to criticism.

Several people who came from families with more children than this one posted last week that in their (or their parent's) experience, the kids didn't feel they were lacking for attention. Given that Angelina and Brad rotate working so one of them is usually available as a full time parent, if not both, in the end the kids may get more parental face time than a family with one or two kids where both parents have to work long hours, year round. Some of what people call hypocrisy seems to be based on old interviews applied to current situations, when obviously her life has changed tremendously in the past few years. (example, saying she didn't want to have biological children before, then later explaining that after she fell in love with Brad her feelings changed.) People evolve and that doesn't make them a liar. Look how forgiving everyone is of Paul Newman, even though he dumped his first wife with three young children to marry his costar Joanne Woodward. Married her the day after the divorce was final I read. And he's praised for his selfless charity work, which he often explained was mostly funded by other organizations and donations, on top of whatever the food line with his face on all the packages earned. (Not exactly an anonymous do-gooder.) I don't see anyone putting down his $250k to Ethiopian drought victims because when he could have given to Americans in need, or the number of camps he has in other countries. Was the millions he invested in his race car teams more worthwhile than the millions the Jolie-Pitts spend on a private place to live? What about Tom Cruise dumping his pregnant wife for Penelope Cruz and giving millions to Scientology and spending more millions on his places to live and private planes? Is that more okay than the Jolie-Pitts? I'm just trying to sort out where a philanthropic celeb crosses into the line into hypocrisy.

^Argh! That should read "Who cares HOW many kids she adopts?" I really should preview more.

Good points, JennieO and MissM. I am on the fence with AJ. I certainly have no feelings of animosity towards her, but she leaves me wondering. But nobody is perfect and no matter what her reasons are, she is doing some good in the world. Certainly more than I'm capable of. The thing is, I hear a lot of people saying, "Oh, who cares who many kids she adopts? That's one more child taken out of a horrible existence." I understand that argument, but doesn't anyone wonder what happens with the kids that are already there? How can they be given enough attention when there are so many other children in the house? But when I voice that opinion, people just get huffy and say the more kids with homes, the better. (Not here - another site.) So my feelings on her are not black and white. Both sides make good points.

Ginger exactly i too think britney is a bad mother and those boys deserve a good healthy mother and that's not her but her fans think otherwise, as much good that angie does still don't like her, I think she is better suited as a mother because kissing your brother and wearing your husbands vile of blood is freakish and disgusting that would be disturbing raising children in that condition then you have the knives which I'm sure are for display not for personal use, but its her hipocrasy and fakeness that I don't care for be real, ginger this is a gossip site not even pop says the whole truth on the headlines or the story

oh, according to PEOPLE MAG it is listed at being worth 70 million. Owner Tom Bove said that they had paid 60 million for a 3 yr lease, then he shut up and nothing was ever said from him again, even when asked, now he just says no comment. I don't think 60 million is too much to them to span over 3 yrs, considering all the money they get from all resourses and considering they just gave 14 million away for nothing(made from the twins photos)??? They are humanitarians, but they are actors who want to make money first.

jennieo is my new hero! very salient points. i used to love the saint, back when she was a freak and didn't make any bones about it. this mother theresa act is getting old. yeah, you give to the poor, so do a lot of people, celebs and not. in fact, i bet a good number of people give more of a percentage of their income to charity than the saint and her lover boy. just a thought. doesn't negate that they give, which is all good, but that they are not the only ones. i want the old freak back. she was so much more fun then. now, she is always contradicting herself and is WAY to into her own hype...

urdumb - don't give her credit for her beauty? if people aren't supposed to ever appreciate beauty you shouldn't be on popsugar or any celebrity website, as most celebrities are famous for looks before anything, and there should exist no fabsugar or bellasugar, all wonderful websites that appreciate different forms of beauty - fashion and art and - here comes bellasugar - crediting the beauty of the face and body...

Ginger the owner himself stated to a UK newspaper that it was leased for 60 million, YES the cost of the property. The reason why so high? Because it was not for sale or for rent. They saw the property, liked the layout and the fact that the Paps could not get close to them and told the owner what price would it take for you to move out for 3 yrs? I think it's totally reasonable. You have a home that someone was living in and tell them they have to move out for 3 yrs, and name your price? I would have told them the full cost of the place too! You get tired reading the same lies? Angelina's change from year to year. It depends on what kick she's on at the time.

They must plan to be in France quite a bit of the time or they wouldn't have leased a place for three years. I thought Brad liked living in America.

oh.. that should say, "tired of reading the same lies"
Ginger Ginger 8 years
I never suggested I was an expert of the Jolie Pitts life, and just read the basic general articles and googled a few of the common myths, because I don't like to spread misinformation on any topic and get tired of ready the same lies over and over from people too lazy to verify anything. Like the claim in post 78 that they spent $60,000 million on a three year lease. The property is worth $60,000 million, if they had bought it, but has the amount they paid to lease it ever been disclosed? Seems unlikely they paid 1/3 of the purchase value per year to lease. That rich for even them, and according to reports, they gave away over $8 million between them in 2006, which was before Brad started his Make It Right Foundation. I haven't seen a figure for 2007. Pink, it's not about changing minds, but spreading commonly repeated lies is just irresponsible. Saying the Britney is a bad mother isn't a personal opinion, but a finding from the court after a lengthy investigation with more depth than we'll probably ever know.

"she also passionately kissed her brother" :o there's something I didn't know. ew... Well, however you feel about her, she's a catalyst and worthy of attention given the lengthy and in depth comments about her on her posts as well as 'that other lady's'. Impressive for a 30yr old woman. The funniest thing is the characters she played before she fell in love with Brad and the one's he played before he fell in love with her. They seem to be on a parallel path and evolving together... that's a blessing to have found someone to walk with you. I'm sure it's worth all the 'cross' people in their path. And you do realize none of this is really about her or the other woman, it's about the definition of a good and bad girl. And no one wants to see the bad girl get the guy. But that all depends on your own definition, hence the strong difference of opinions and tireless arguments. I think Brad's a big boy, he can pick his own mate, evidently. And if he made a mistake, it wouldn't be his first, either way it's his to live with.

Everything she does is so contrived, her greatest "role" yet. And pleeeeze stop giving her credit for her beauty, as if that makes a person have more value than the rest.
