    I think Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt are very handsome couple, of course they love all their children specially Shi no doubt about it. Whatever people say about them are not true, my hands off to them, for doing a great job as parents for 4 kids & helping the less fortunate children around the globe.

  2. Jolie-Pitt fan says

    The way I read about the “accidental” pregnancy is that Jolie said she was never planning on having a baby but that it was she who got knocked up. Which the way I see it is that she planned on getting knocked up…Don’t you people realize that she is on the pill and the only way was for her to intentionally not take her pills…so I do believe Shiloh was planned..She has said she is now on the pill. She is not a stupid woman who would accidently get “knocked up” Movie stars are more careful than we are because we don’t have a career in the movies as they do. I admire her. People hate her for her past but she has grown to be a loving, giving woman who does good for the misfortune and not spend her useless time running on the beach as the ex mrs. loser.

    Thats so funny this Cathy Beers would write “Perhaps it’s time Jolie skips interviews for a while.”

    Perhaps this Cathy Beers could quote the WHOLE quote and not just pick out pieces of each one. Seems like this Cathy Beers can’t read or comprehend.

    Angelina Jolie Says Shiloh Was an Accident, Oops, No – She was Planned
    ——————————————————————————–

    By Cathy Beers
    May 10, 2007

    Angelina Jolie is ready for some good press. The serial adopter has been dragged through the mud by every entertainment weekly under the sun and has even been taken to task by shows on CNN for skirting the law in the adoption of a boy she named Pax Thien Jolie. There are also a lot of reports that she just doesn’t pay enough attention to her natural born little cutie Shiloh. But maybe Jolie just gets confused. She certainly can’t seem to keep her story straight when it comes to if Shiloh was planned or not.

    Angelina Jolie Says Shiloh Was an Accident, Oops, No – She was Planned

    In the February issue of Elle U.K in an interview released earlier this year, she said that Shiloh was an accident. She told the magazine, ” I wasn’t planning on getting pregnant. I’m the one that got knocked up!” That must not have ‘focused grouped’ very well and that interview and her adoption was right about when the Jolie backlash took hold full bore. And it has yet to subside. So what’s a pillow-lipped momma under pressure to do? Get a fluff piece out. This month’s Reader’s Digest is on newsstands and in mailboxes now and it seems pretty sugary and when it comes to Shiloh she claims the exact opposite. Well – except for the knocked up part.

    ***

    She now says having Shiloh was actually planned. The story says: “Before I met Brad, I always said I was happy never to have a child biologically. He told me he hadn’t given up on that thought. Then, a few months after Z came home, I saw Brad with her and Mad, and I realized how much he loved them, and a biological child would not in any way be a threat. So I said, ‘I want to try.'”

    So – which is it? At times you feel sorry for Jolie. She desperately wishes to be taken seriously, but her wild past and her tendency to just blurt out whatever is on her mind in interviews really costs her credibility among all except for the most ardent Angelina Jolie followers. Especially when they run the exact opposite as these two interviews have. Every woman knows if their child was planned or not. It looks as if Angelina wants it both ways and she comes off as looking like – well an empty headed Hollywood actress. And that’s okay – unless you are shooting for saving the world ‘one child at a time’ as the article says.

    ***

    Remember she even dissed her little natural born baby Shiloh pretty seriously in that Elle interview. That’s the same interview where she called her little baby privileged and a blob. That really brought the heat from critics.

    “I think I feel so much more for Madd and Zee because they’re survivors, they came through so much. Shiloh seemed so privileged from the moment she was born. I have less inclination to feel for her…I met my other kids when they were 6 months old, they came with a personality. A newborn really is this…Yes, a blob! But now she’s starting to have a personality…I’m conscious that I have to make sure I don’t ignore her needs, just because I think the others are more vulnerable,” she said in February. Perhaps it’s time Jolie skips interviews for a while. She is better off as the dark. Mysterious type.

  6. Reeny says

    Its all fine and dandy that Brad and Angelina have a nice family now. But, in my opinion Angelina came at Brad with her claws out to snag him. They both don’t know the sanctity of marriage. I have no respect for either one of them.

  7. oriana says

    I saw a picture of Maddox looking verrrry cute with his shorter hair cut! Very cute little boy! Both boys are very sweet!

  8. Melz says

    Shiloh is not cute – she is gorgeous. I used to think Suri was more visually stunning but she has lost her initial charm!

  9. Twinkle says

    I’ll admit it: I’m completely obsessed with Shiloh. OBSESSED! She is so darn beautiful. She looks like the Gerber baby. I can’t get over how beautiful she is. I think she is the spitting image of her dad, but with mommy’s amazing lips. She’s like a porcelin doll.

  10. oriana says

    Jill, Again, that picture is old news. On the front of OK magazine, one of the four pictures that People mag was referring too. And that was long ago. Is there anything new?

  11. N says

    For some reason the justjared photos wont let you link it…. I tried a while back. I was answering the question meant for Jill.

  12. Jill says

    I wish we were allowed to post photos on this site because I have a lovely pic of the family with Angelina holding Shiloh in her left arm while her other hand is holding Maddox’s hand, and Brad is holding Z. Pax isn’t in the photo so it was most likely taken before he joined the family. I downloaded it from the Just Jared site. Wish I could share it here with all of you.

  13. Zbella says

    I agree with oriana that it looks like Angelina had a nose job, but I have no proof of that. Anyway, she is one of my fav celebrities and I think she’s gorgeous. I LOVE seeing her and her beau and their kids. LOVE LOVE LOVE this family.

  14. oriana says

    Penny, where did you come from? If you are trying to say that I am on here having conversations with myself, you are delusional! Actually I got a good laugh out of that comment, so thank you!

    Please write to People magazine and complain to them about keeping their score card, because that is where I got the info of Angie only being photographed four times with Shiloh, so SORRY, I don’t have my calculator going on it!

    As for me taking pictures and twisting them, how can they be twisted? Either she is holding Shiloh or she isn’t!

    Who said they had to account to me? I am not the U.N.!

    So please, try another approach, I am not talking to myself posing as myself, that is just stupid thinking on your part!!!!!!

    For your info, several people I like and refer too, Lib, Xena, Nicki, they happen to like Angie and Brad so I do think they may get a good laugh out of me posing as them! And for me posing as Mia, forget it, I would run for the border, the hills and for cover if I tried to impersonate that girl!!!! Please!!!!!!!

  15. Penny says

    Oriana, how pathetic that you need to keep a score card of how many pictures you have seen of these people and then hold yourself up as some “expert” on what’s going on in their lives. You take both pictures and words out of context and twist them to suit your hateful opinions. It makes me laugh when I read exchanges between you and one of your “supporters” because I know it’s really you pretending to have a conversation with someone else! Truth is, you’re really not that interesting.

    This lovely couple are putting their money where their hearts are! They do not have to account themselves to you or to anybody else. They are making choices in their lives that have paid beneficial dividends to so many others … in third-world countries AND in the States!

    Bless them!

  16. oriana says

    Essie, don’t waste your precious time telling Lib not to bother with me! She will “bother” with me as long as she wants too and can willinging express herself to me, on here and on my personal email, so try another tactic when it comes to that!!!! We can communicate quite well with one another, thank you!!

    Now, go put in your application to hold Angie’s hand and help take care of Shiloh when she is feeling bad.

  17. oriana says

    Essie, where are the pictures of Just Jared of Angie holding Shiloh? I have seen the pictures, must have missed that one!

  18. oriana says

    Essie, don’t worry about Poor Oriana! Yes, I do believe in psychics and ghosts. That is my belief, where did I ever say that Essie had to agree with me? Don’t remember that!

    Absolutely right, I don’t think Brad has any “balls” or “backbone” about him, I definately think Angie calls the shots and is the head of that family! She has always done as she pleases and I don’t see that stopping.

    I am very happy to hear she took Shiloh with her, I am sure the Nanny was there also. Oh, but I am sure Angie held her constantly and bathed and fed her by herself!

    As for her not having surgery, her nose looks different to me, it looks much rounder in her younger pictures and more thinner in the past few years.

    As for her weight, she looked the best when she was filiming Laura Coft, she looked very good then, since then, her long boney skinny arms, ugly veins showing in her hands, and flat butt, I don’t see anything spectular about all that!

    I absolutely don’t believe for a minute or a second that she loves all her kids equally, only wistful thinking and being in denial about her would make someone believe that!

    Sorry, Lib, I know you like her and that is fine, to each his own. I always thought and still do, that Jennifer Anniston was no beauty in the face, that snout of hers is way too big, but she does have a good figure going for her.

  19. Essie says

    Desiree, if you want to see more pics of the family, go to justjared.com. That’s where the great pics are, not here. Much more up-to-date.

    Libraesque, don’t bother. These people don’t want to know that Angelina has not had surgery. It’s easy to see but they would rather not see because they hate her.

    I don’t have a problem with people disliking Brad and/or Angelina. What I do have a problem with is all the speculation about Angie and Shiloh. None of you know squat about these people. All you see are random pictures on the internet and lying gossip from the tabloids. Y’all need to find something else to do with your lives. Hating can be deadly!! It’s bad for you physically and mentally.

  20. Libraesque says

    LLOK HER UP ONLINE PEOPLE (I just tried to post links, the site wouldn’t let me)

    she HAS NOT had surgery!!!

  21. says

    i think angelina is sooooo beautiful and i just love this family.it doesnt matter which parent is with which kid more in photos. what about the times that the public are not seeing them? i dont care what anyone says but i believe honestly that both parents LOVE all 4 of their children equally. great pic and hope to see more of this family!

  22. Essie says

    So, Melissa, you believe in psychics?? How mature. And why, please tell me, do you think this person (Sylvia Brown) is right “so far”? On what do you base your theory? I’m just curious.

    And, Poor Oriana. You are so delusional. No matter what Angelina does in regards to Shiloh you will find some fault. She spent a week traveling with only Shiloh but you think she does it just to “please Brad” but on the other hand you say Brad “has no balls” and he does whatever Angie tells him to do and that they will stay together only if he continues to give in to her wants. Isn’t that contradictory? Probably not, in your hateful little mind!!

    You have no idea what that woman feels for Shiloh. How can you by only looking at random pictures and reading tabloids. I don’t understand.

    Angie hasn’t had a nose job or any other work done on her face. Her face is basically the same as when she was 10 years old at the Oscars with her father . . . the lips, the eyes and the nose. The only changes over the years have been in her weight. But, if you hate someone I guess you see only what you want to see.

  23. oriana says

    I have read many times that she has had surgery on her nose when she was younger, it does look different to me than some of her early pictures, I think she has always been gorgeous and didn’t need anything done.

    Yes, I am sure she holds the baby sometimes, she would have to too please Brad, she isn’t stupid, I think she is fond of the baby but her heart isn’t in it, like it is for Zahara and the boys. I don’t think she can help herself, it is how she is.

    59, Melissa, I have heard of Sylvia Brown, she lives close to me, and she is very interesting, I wish I could go see her but I heard she charges like$300. and I can’t afford that!

  24. Libraesque says

    poor dumb Megan
    a prime example of a delusional TomKat fan (she posted the same thing on tomkatcrazy………….which has NOTHING to do with AJ)

  25. Libraesque says

    KIKI, you’re a FREAK, AJ has never had surgery, her features are identical now as they were 10 years ago

    FREAK

  26. melissa says

    well I have been on this sight and I always say the same thing The baby is cute but the mom is not. Brad is a really great dad and her mom is not. I don’t know if any of you guys believe in Sylvia Brown she airs on with montell sometimes and makes predictions. Back in December 2006 she predicted that Brad and Angelina would be done by the end of this year. So far it looks like that might just happen I’m rooting that she is right because I really can’t stand the way she is.

  27. Essie says

    This week’s “People” says that Shiloh was with Angelina in Washington, D.C and in New York while the other kids stayed in L.A. with Brad.

    Now, I wasn’t there but it seems to me if Angie bothered to bring Shiloh with her on these trips then she must have held her at some point. I don’t know, I’m just assuming since I wasn’t there!!!

    Another little blurb I read (on TMZ, I think) also said that Angelina had written in her contract for this movie that she was to work only during the day so she could be home with her children in the evening.

  28. joan says

    people need to leave other people’s lives alone i enjoy angie and brad together people failed to understand that jenifer had five years and if she didn’t want to have kids then when was she no one every realyy knows what was going on with brad and jenifer behind closed doors it is obvious that brad wanted more and he got that with is beautiful daughter shilo i never understood is relationship with jenifer anyway and any one has the nerve to talk about angie nose take a look at brads ex wife also suri is a beautiful baby

  29. oriana says

    She obviously had some work done on her nose, she was gorgeous as a teenager but very unhappy with herself, (her own words) not mine, and other than the picture of her leaving the plane is the most recent one, there have been ONLY four pictures of her holding Shiloh up until the one N posted. It has been researched and documented by even their beloved People magazine who has paid for most of their posed for pictures.

  30. Kiki says

    Angie had exotic unique looks that she herself did not like. Do you deny that she has not had cosmetic surgery? You may like her but this is a fact. She even said that she was teased in school because of her looks and I have watched old movies of hers and she looked so different back then. It may be because of age but her nose and cheeks had some work done.

  31. kimmy says

    Face it- Shiloh is not with Angelina because she’s too busy for her- too busy taking care of her adopted kids that matter to her. I’ve never seen Shiloh in her arms except for one time and that was when she was posing in people. What a waste of perfectly quality time that she could be spending with a beautiful baby. I’m not saying her adopted kids don’t matter, all I’m saying is that they should all be treated the same.

  32. Inna says

    Suri, Shiloh, Violet, Kingston, Bluebell, Dannylynn, Grier, and all other babies in the world are adorable, beautiful, and each have their own unique and special ways! And Perez Hilton is a media thief who makes horrible comments on other people but never did say anything and always defend dumb ho retarded Paris Hilton.

  33. Zbella says

    Oh, I think Shiloh is adorable. She and Violet are my favorite babies. Just my opinion. They are simply beautiful!
    Wow, Walking?!?

    These are the worst pictures from the bunch – and can you please not have Perez Hilton’s silly drawings all over these beautiful people? Check out celebrity-babies.com

  34. Lauren says

    Shiloh is adorable. Brad seems really devoted to his little girl. I wish there were more pictures of little Shiloh.

  35. says

    Kiki Im so agreed with you, shiloh is very cute but shes just like any other baby, I guess that suri is more unique she takes your attention, but I also think that dannielynn is absolutely beautiful, she really is, well in my opinion

  36. Kiki says

    Shiloh is cute but disappointing to a certain extent after all the hype about her but before we judge her harshly, we must remember that before she had cosmetic surgery, no one ever talked about Angelina’s looks so may be Shiloh will look better after surgery right now she is ordinary and if she was in a supermarket, you would not stop to coo her. Dannielynn is very sweet but without the air brushing she is just another beautiful baby. I have my problems with Cruise but Suri is the most extraordinary baby I had ever seen, her hair and eyes set her apart to a point of weird, she is a baby that you take a step back in a super market to look at again. I wonder what she will look like in 2,5, and 10 years!

  37. says

    SHILOH IS SO BIG SHES ALMOST WALKING, VERY CUTE AND THE WEIRD THING IS THAT SHE ONLY PLAYS WITH BRAD, NOT WITH ANGIE, SHES ALWAYS PLAYING WITH THE OTHER KIDS, POOR SHILOH BUT AT LEAST SHE HAS BRAD

  38. Sarah says

    I think that it is so great that Brad is spending time with Shiloh. I think that they look cute.bbb bbb bbbb bbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbb bbbb bbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbb bbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb bb bbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb bb bbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbb bbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbb haa he he he come and play with me! SUCKERS

  39. Jill says

    Fifi and Emily, according to the most recent issue of People magazine, Angelina took Shiloh to NYC with her last week before the family left for Prague, and left the older kids with Brad. Soooo…. now I’m waiting for the haters to start screeching that Angelina only loves her biological daughter and doesn’t care about her adopted children. (As Mayra also said in her post, for those of you who don’t read Spanish.)

  40. sarah says

    ok, ok, ok girls. think poor megans got the point now…….!
    she made a mistake……….we are only human !!!

  41. dori says

    it’s so nice to see Brad with his daughter. He looks like a doting dad and Shiloh is very cute.

  42. Team Jolie says

    Well, there was a pic, that was not posed for, while they were in Pune, India during filming of ‘A Mighty Heart’ where Angie was holding Shy. That was the pic where she was holding her. So I doubt that Shy is being neglected by her mom but I can’t help but wonder why she adopted Pax so quickly. She could have atleast waited until Shiloh was 1 1/2 or maybe even 2. This transistion is going to be hard for Mad, going from apple of mommy’s eye to second banana must be tough (But again, I don’t know how Angie treats Shy, so we’ll skip over her, as cruel as it sounds.) Then, he goes from there to big bro to three little one whom he has to learn to share with. Hope Angie waits a while before adopting again……..

  43. jackie says

    First of all Shiloh isn’t 1–and why would you use perez hiltons pictures that he scribbles on when they are all over the internet??

  44. mayra sanchez says

    la verdad que a veces sus comentarios incurren en lo
    estupido,si fuera por el contrario que angelina solo
    estuviera con su hija biologica dirian,que no quiere
    a los ninos adoptados,que ridiculez

  45. fifi trooper says

    So, when is she ever going to hold that baby! I bet, you when Shiloh gets older, she’s going to be close to her dad! Why? because Angie, seems like she doesn’t pay to cents of attention to her! It was just something that just came out of her as she put it!!

  46. Emily says

    They look very happy together,having lots of
    fun!!!! I wonder if Angelina spents time with
    this lovely baby!!!!

    Um, Jennifer lover… if you are representative of Aniston’s fan base, she’s got more problems than I imagined.

  49. jennifer lover says

    i hate freakin angelina jolie and brad is freakin stupid for divorcing jennifer she is so much prettier than that hoe and their baby is just as ugly as she is jennifer is to good for them anyway she should stay as far away from them as she can and find a hotter guy than brad

  50. JJ says

    OMG, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw #7. Can’t believe some people would actually think the whole parodical.com abt story is true!!! ROTFLOL! Exactly how hearsay becomes ‘truth’.

  51. oriana says

    Gina, I do think also that Brad and Jennifer made a better looking couple,, but I know the heart wants what the heart wants, and he obviously wanted Angie, and children, I think Jennifer blew it and I think she knows it.

    I think that Dannielynn is one of the most precious looking babies I have seen! Shiloh looks identical to Jon Voight, I thought she looked like Brad a lot until I saw Jon Voight in his younger days, very handsome man, still, very distinguished to me. I would love to see Angie have another biological child but doubt if it will ever happen, read where she is on the pill and since her heart is apparently with her adopted kids, more of them to come for sure. I do think Pax is very cute little boy and I am thankful he was adopted by her.

  52. Gina says

    I don’t see Aniston in this role but I still think Pitt looked better with Aniston.. He looks less sexy and very tense and unsure of himself these days. Whenever I see, I can help but be reminded of a little boy caught with a hand in the cream jar. LOL. Shiloh is cute, not ‘the most beautiful baby on earth cute’ but all babies are cute’ cute. Brad looks like he adores her.

  53. Tia :) says

    I don’t care what people say about Angie and Brad, but i love them together. I think Angie is one of the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. I think Shiloh looks like Brad…beautiful baby!

  54. Keni says

    That baby is BEAUTIFUL, that man is GORGEOUS!! Love that shes playin with her daddy again…

    #7, u were there right? Sitting at the next table? Ppl r soo silly… believe “everything” u read online.

  55. Nicki says

    Megan You are so stupid, sorry. In the title on the home page……..PARODICAL
    (next line) IMAGINARY moments etc…. Big key word….IMAGINARY moments………..Get a clue Megan!!!!

    Silly girl..

  56. Megan says

    Nicki go slow, go to the home of that site and read other stories, I see no parody. And I hope you did not buy that crap that she called up Angelina when she was a no body. What I want her asked in that interview. Has she ever met Aniston face to face?

  57. Nicki says

    #7 Megan- Your so silly. Don’t you know what a parody is? This whole article is a satire, you silly girl.
    Here is an article that is actually real, with Mariane and Angelina, and they knew each other BEFORE she got together with Brad. Silly girl Megan.
    http://www.glamour.com/news/articles/2007/05/joliepearl
    This article is coming out this month, the joke you showed was from summer 2006, it was funny though, you actually believed it was real? LMAO, thanks for the laughs!

  58. Gina says

    Yes she does look like Voight. And her head is one the big side but she is a cute baby and the picture is very sweet. If Angelina did that to Aniston, then she is even worse than I originally thought. Any if she could take pics with Brad in Africa before the divorce was through…that woman has no heart!

  59. Megan says

    Pics are cute but Angelina is still a WITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Angelina Jolie Convinces Mariane Pearl To Drop Jennifer Aniston
    Tuesday July 18th 2006, 9:28 am
    Filed under: Entertainment, Celebrity, Culture, Business
    Mariane Pearl sat in the back of the candle-lit restaurant in West Los Angeles. She had walked in and was immediately ushered to a hidden table for six around a tiled partition, clearly set up for private meals and meetings. She though was sitting at the table for fifteen minutes, all alone, sipping a green tea and wondering if this was going to be one of those typical Hollywood meetings where the movie stars are late and everyone waits, sitting on their hands, having small talk simply to fill the dead space until the stars arrive. Mariane, though, had no one to try out small talk with. Alone, is what she was, very much alone since her husband, Daniel Pearl, was brutally kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan. She had written her book, A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl to keep herself busy, to diminish the feeling of loneliness, an attempt to bring back Danny if just in her mind as she reconstructed her husband’s life.

    Mariane was surprised when the book was immediately picked up and it sold well. She immediately became a minor celebrity, calls from agents about appearances, speeches, fund-raising events and of course movie deals. It was the call from Jennifer Aniston, a direct call, a personal call, with Jennifer on the other line, calling Mariane on Mariane’s cell phone, that was the biggest surprise. Jennifer read the book and wanted to buy the movie rights. They met on several occasions, Jennifer Aniston and Mariane Pearl, at restaurants, at Jennifer’s house, at Mariane’s house, at business offices, and all along Jennifer was very upfront about why she was interested. Jennifer Aniston wanted to play the role of Mariane Pearl in the movie based on her book.

    Mariane was of course flattered. Jennifer Aniston playing her. The thought was both amusing and at times difficult to wrap her arms around. Not that Jennifer Ansiton couldn’t do it. It was just that anyone playing Mariane, particularly someone so beautiful and charismatic and famous as Jennifer Aniston, was difficult to fathom. Someone other than you playing you was like looking in a mirror and seeing someone else. Or was it like watching yourself, an act of narcissim that Mariane did not wish to grapple with. Afterall, this happened all the time. So she had decided to let it happen. Jennifer Aniston would be Mariane Pearl. At least in a movie.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie walked around the partition, both dressed very casually, hidden by sunglasses and scarves. Mariane was surprised to see Angelina Jolie. Mariane thought that she was simply meeting Brad Pitt.

    “Sorry we’re late,” said Brad.

    “It’s OK,” said Mariane.

    A waiter arrived.

    “Just a cappucinno for me in a paper cup,” said Brad.

    The waiter looked at Angelina, who shook her head in silence.

    “This is Angelina. Angelina this is Mariane Pearl,” said Brad.

    “Hi,” said Angelina.

    “Hi,” said Mariane.

    “I have some very exciting news, Mariane,” said Brad.

    “Yes?” said Mariane.

    “We are proceeding with the movie. Michael Winterbottom is directing. I’m producing. We are starting right away with development,” said Brad.

    “Great,” said Mariane.

    “A minor change. Well, actually a big change, one that helps the film enormously. Angelina is going to play you,” said Brad.

    “Angelina? But I thought…” said Mariane.

    “Jennifer is no longer involved. But that is OK. It is all good,” said Brad.

    “But I was just talking to Jennifer, I don’t know, maybe three weeks ago. She was doing some research,” said Mariane.

    “Brad, I said it would be better if…” said Angelina.

    “No. It is important that you are here. Mariane, this is a crazy business. Things never proceed as originally planned. Usually things fall apart. But you are lucky. You are very lucky. Rather than fall apart, your book, Danny’s life and your life will all come together in a movie starring an actor with even better credentials. It is all good, and I promise you this will move forward and be a major motion picture,” said Brad.

    “I don’t know. I feel funny about this. I feel bad,” said Mariane.

    “Yes, but frankly, Mariane, you really don’t have a say in casting,” said Brad.

    “Oh shut up Brad, of course she has a say,” said Angelina with a slight smile on her face. “Mariane, I have read your book several times, and it has become very important to me to become a part of this project. As you no doubt know, I have dedicated much of my life to traveling the world and to purposely involving myself in causes for the underprivileged, the poor, the sick. I have used my celebrity as best I can to help others, rather than squander it on a Hollywood lifestyle. And to me, the fact that you and Danny did not have the resources at your disposal as I do, you nevertheless still dedicated your lives to others. That astounds me, that you and Danny would give so much of yourselves when you did not have much in the way of money or wealth or command of the media. I sit here in awe of you and of your late husband, and I would consider it a privilege, indeed an honor, to play the role of your life. In fact, I hunger to do so because it is a story that must be told,” said Angelina.

    Mariane was not stupid. She felt she was being played, and Angelina was playing her like a deck of cards. But quite frankly, Angelina seemed sincere. Now of course she might be simply acting. Afterall, she is an actress. But the energy between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt disturbed the air around the table with a narcotic that almost made Mariane giddy. Maybe Mariane was being played, but she felt high from it all.

    “I am very flattered that you would say all that. But I still feel uncomfortable about the Jennifer thing,” said Mariane.

    “Of course you do. Anyone would. But you know the things that have happened. Jennifer no longer has any interest in the production company, Brad’s Plan B production company, that purchased the rights to your book, and to put it bluntly, and I think you know this all too well, shit happens,” said Angelina.

    Mariane looked at Angelina who was returning the look. Brad had long since sat back in his chair sipping his cappuccino that was served almost immediately after he ordered it. Brad was out of the equation, at least for this meeting. Angelina’s “shit happens” remark was her way of communicating that this is the way it is, and there is nothing Mariane can do about it. Nevertheless, it almost added to the narcotic effect of the moment to watch Angelina Jolie say “shit happens.”

    “Well, OK. I guess,” said Mariane.

    “I knew you would understand. And you know we are going to be spending a lot of time together. I have to get to know you. I’ve got to know you to play you,” said Angelina.

    Mariane could not help but think that this little meeting had already started to instruct Angelina about Mariane.

    “One thing, though, Mariane, and this is very important. You must drop the Jennifer Aniston thing when asked by the media, and you must enthusiastically support the decision of casting me in the movie. If the media starts to give us bad press, then this project will fall apart. That is not a threat, it is just Hollywood for you. It sucks, but money comes and goes so fast, and everyone is skittish about everything. You understand,” said Angelina.

    “Yes,” said Mariane.

    “I’ve got to go. Brad,” said Angelina as she stood. “You guys talk, fill Mariane in on the timing and everything,” said Angelina to Brad. “It was great meeting you,” said Angelina as she turned and walked out into the hot Los Angeles late afternoon sun.

    “You want a drink?” asked Brad Pitt.

    Alone with Brad Pitt in the back of a fancy Los Angeles restaurant. This was all set up to seal the deal. The girls came to terms, and now the guy is going to make certain it all proceeds in accordance with the plan. Plan B, that is.

    On other sites you can barely see pax and zahara playing in these same shots and it looks like zahara is standing on her on. I think it’s tmz.com or flynetonline.com I can’t remember.

    also, just wanted to say that Shiloh is not a year old yet, her birthday is this month on the 27, just like my best friend’s birthday.

    wow, that little girl is a cutie:)
    it’s funny that you only see Shy with her daddy all the time.
    it’s also funny that Z is never seen standing or walking, but here comes little sis, beating her to the punch, when she’s like half her age.
    i honestly don’t believe all those dumb rumors about AJ not loving Shy, but many are probably going to go crazy about how Shy is only with her daddy and less cared for. Have fun gals:)
