Nobody expected Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to release their wedding photos via People Magazine, but the Brange is just full of surprises, aren’t they? Angelina bypasses tabloids to go to the New York Times to announce her double mastectomy, and then they release the news of their wedding via the Associated Press – and then sell the pictures to People? Then again, they have always used People for major milestones, including the birth of their children and the announcement of their engagement. I suppose it’s fitting that their wedding photos debut in the same magazine, if only to keep up appearances with their fan base [a large part of whom subscribe to People].
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are married! They somehow managed to obtain a marriage license in California and sneak off to Chateau Miraval with several friends and family members [notably missing Angelina's father, Jon Voight], without the paparazzi or media figuring it out.
Of course, everyone else was preoccupied with the Emmy Awards and the VMA Awards this weekend, and with all the focus diverted elsewhere, Angelina and Brad were able to get married at Miraval [on Saturday] in peace and quiet. There was no media fan fare, no paparazzi, and nobody suspected a thing until the newlyweds announced the news in a statement this morning.
Seriously, who’s going to complain about privacy after this? If the two biggest celebrities in the world managed to get married without any media attention, then nobody else has any excuse – including George Clooney.
Kate Middleton might be royalty but in many ways she’s just like you and I- there are still celebrities that she would love an opportunity to meet. In her case Angelina Jolie seems to be near the top of her list and as luck would have it, she and Angie will both be visiting Malta at exactly the same time in September. Kate thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to arrange a meeting and when she suggested it to Prince William she was stunned by his reaction.
Nobody can ever match Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on pure gossip. They’re ‘Brangelina’ for a reason, and they continue to prove that, over and over again. For example, Angelina recently revealed that the couple exchanged love letters while they were apart, during the time when Angelina was filming Unbroken in Australia and Brad was filming Fury in England.
Angelina explained, “Brad was supportive from a distance and it was quite romantic in a way. We decided to be of that time when we could imagine he was in the European theater and I was in the Pacific theater and we wrote hand-written letters to each other that were very connecting for us, thinking of the people that were separated for months if not years at a time back then.”
If you followed celeb news back in the late 90′s then you already know that Angelina Jolie was one of the wildest actresses out there. She was known for her drug use, crazy sexual antics and self abuse in every other way imaginable. Back then Angie liked being thought of as a wild child and took pleasure in being perceived as a bad girl. Obviously that’s not the image she still is after and in fact she has spent the last decade morphing herself into a humanitarian of sorts. The problem is that a voice from Angie’s past has decided to pop up and boy does he have a story to tell.
According to the July 14th print edition of The National Enquirer Franklin Meyer used to deal drugs to Angie back in the 90′s. In fact he would travel from his downtown NYC apartment to the upper west side to deliver her cocaine and heroin to her apartment at the Ansonia Hotel. On one particular visit after Angie got high on heroin she proceeded to talk in detail about her sexcapades and Meyer captured 16 minutes of her stories on video. He is now talking about life as Angie’s dealer and also apparently looking for a buyer for this video.
Angelina Jolie has been hinting at her retirement from the acting community for quite some time now, but it looks like we may get that day sooner than we anticipated. Angelina has been giving interview after interview during promotion for her latest film, Maleficent, where she appears in front of the camera after a two year break from acting. She’s definitely slowed down her acting career over the recent years, admitting that she much prefers directing to acting.
In fact, Angelina even hinted in a recent interview that after doing a long gestating Cleopatra project, she may finally hang up the acting hat for good. First, she touches upon the possibility of the Cleopatra project coming to fruition, explaining, “She’s [Cleopatra] complicated. It’s complicated to get this one right. I think we’re getting there. It’s getting close. I imagine the preparation for it is going to be big.” Well, that’s without a doubt. With Angelina involved and a big period setting, I don’t see the budget coming in anywhere under a $100 million.
Angelina Jolie recently underwent a double mastectomy, but she still has one final surgery left to complete. She wasn’t able to finish the procedure last year due to her busy schedule [filming Maleficent and directing Unbroken], but she’s since stated that she’s planning on getting that last surgery sometime this year. However, a new report from the National Enquirer suggests that Angelina is dealing with another health scare, this time due to her rapid weight loss.
Apparently, Brad Pitt is very worried that with her drastic weight loss, she won’t be able to handle the final surgery without more serious health complications. A source tells the Enquirer, “Angelina plans to have her ovaries removed, and Brad is panicked that her fragile physical condition could cause the procedure to end in tragedy. Brad is fearful that Angie may not be strong enough to survive the operation. He’s worried sick about her!”
Angelina Jolie is already a successful writer, actress, and director, and she’s a world-renowned humanitarian and philanthropist. And in the future, don’t be surprised if she adds politician to that list.
According to Angelina [who's currently doing the promotional rounds for Maleficent], she’s not ruling out a future in politics, and the way she’s going right now, it honestly wouldn’t be that surprising to see her end up as the president of the United States of America. I mean, fifteen years ago who would have thought that she’d be in this position, and not off doing voodoo curses over boyfriends and wearing vials of blood around her neck?
