I adore and admire Angelina Jolie
and any and every woman who adopts orphans and abandoned children.

And that Brad Pitt thing?

I think she and he make a damn handsome couple, so there!!!

Angelina Adopts Again

by Charlie Amter
Jul 6, 2005, 7:45 AM PT



Forget Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has a new special someone in her life: a daughter.

If all goes according to plan, the Oscar winner and all-around do-gooder will by week's end finalize the adoption of an Ethiopian orphan whose parents were killed by AIDS.

1. She has a great heart.
And wonderful lips, I might add.

16. But dang, she's made some dog movies!
Did anyone actually like 'Beyond Borders'? Gag. Even Eye Candy like Clive Owens didn't make that one watchable.

She was really good in Girl Interrupted.

2. Amen!
I adore her too. I don't know if all those rumors about her and Brad Pitt are true, so I won't hold them against her. The media loves to make things up (as we all know here).

IF she was part of an extra-marital affair, that I can't admire.

edit- that is IF (of course I do not know and therefore try not to judge)

7. I don't think they had an sexual affair I do believe Pitt was mesmorized
by her. I bet his constant talking about her is what caused the riff.
Her work for the UN, her son, work in Africa, etc.

9. You may be right. We'll probably never know!
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 04:02 PM by Shell Beau
Aniston is supposedly going to tell her side to Vanity Fair b/c she has been so hurt at Pitt for all this Jolie stuff. They "supposedly" made an agreement not to date for 6 months! Who knows?

On edit, I don't put it past Jolie to do it though. She married Bill Bob while he was already engaged to another woman (Laura Dern)

23. That's a toughie
as somebody currently going thru a divorce, I can somewhat relate (although our breakup doesn't involve sexual infidelity, AFAIK).

It takes two people to get married, and it also takes two people to screw it up, too. Brad may have had some goofy relationship with Angelina, but he must have done it for a reason-- something may not have been right at home if he had to seek solace elsewhere.

Either that or he's a two-timing, no-good, durn galoot who fscked up a good thing.

38. Yeah, they were nice
and I still have the hots for Jennifer Aniston, too.

But that Angeline Jolie could dust my broom any ol' day. ROWR!

35. Jolie has come out and said that because of her childhood
and what her father did to her mother that she would NEVER EVER EVER compromise her principals by sleeping with a married man.

For what its worth, I believe her. She's always been the type to speak her mind- no matter how badly it may have affected her later.

I agree with whoever posted that their was an attraction and Brad became was enchanted by her.

41. Yes, but this is Hollywood, marriages aren't expected to last more than...
...a few years.

If she broke up a regular couple, I'd be upset too. But Hollywood loves the soap operas for their stars. Just another day with the Jennifer-Brad-Angelina thing

11. What?
What else isn't natural? She doesn't have fake boobs, no plastic surgery, known anyway. She walks to the beat of a different drummer but as far as the body goes, that's all her.

34. no - i meant she's plastic surgerized

40. She's a very pretty woman, but there is something about her
look that seems kind of artificial. I can't quite put my finger on it, but she just doesn't look real.

8. yep - she's an amazing advocate for refugee rights
I became an instant fan when I read about her work. Still don't generally dig her movies, but she has my support as a human being.

31. In case you aren't kidding...
Billy Bob didn't have anything to do with the child they adopted together. That was a couple of years ago. This Brad thing just happened this year.

36. Billy Bob did in fact have something to do with Maddox
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 06:18 PM by LibraLiz1973
Angelina got involved with the Red Cross & went to do charity work. Met Maddox in an orphanage and felt a connection. Contacted BB and asked if he would be interested in adoption- he said yes. She went ahead with the papers. Original documents show BB's signature & list him as the father.
Papers later finalized listed Jolie as a single parent- because BB ran off on tour with his band and started banging groupies. I think it was great that she didn't put up with it and bailed instead.

Course it must have been a kick in the teeth when about a year later BB got another woman pregnant.

I think that was until it actually happened and they were on 2 different pages.

21. Not what I heard...
I had heard that she wanted to do it, he said no, but she did it anyway. He tried to hang for a while, then split.

Who knows... :shrug:
