Jennifer Aniston’s black sack dress: Jolie-esque or uniquely fug?

wenn5613045

Here is a great example of one of my biggest problems with Jennifer Aniston’s style. One of the things she is most famous for is that body. She works so hard on that body. She diets. She exercises. She does yoga. She spends hours and hours sculpting that body into a masterpiece. And she wants to show it off – and so she does, in photo shoot after nearly-naked photo shoot. But then she chokes on the red carpet. I’m not saying Aniston has to wander around in Pamela Anderson’s cast-offs, but I get the feeling that Aniston still doesn’t know what clothes really show off her crazy body to its fullest potential.

Take this black potato sack dress, designer unknown, which Aniston wore to the Just Go With It premiere in Madrid yesterday. Angelina Jolie is going to homewreck Aniston’s closet to get this dress. La Jolie lusts after this kind of sack dress. It’s just… unflattering. It makes Aniston look thick around her mid-section, something she is not. The only good thing about the dress is how short it is – Aniston’s legs look great.

Brooklyn is wearing Dolce & Gabbana, by the way. And I threw in a photo of Aniston on some Spanish television show, wearing her glasses. I really like her frames too.

    She is so very beautiful for her age.
    Jen is definitely more attractive than Angelina.

  2. Genevieve says:

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, PUT ON A COLOUR! Any colour! Icy blue, warm yellow, mint green…Imagine a pattern if you dare!

  3. Kaye1 says:

    Not a great dress. I would like her hair if it was less messy looking.

  4. Lucy says:

    And the pregnant rumors will start again…

    Kaiser, your comment about La Jolie homewrecking JA ‘s closet was priceless! hahaha…

  5. TRT says:

    Simply awful! Hair and the dress are not doing anything for her.
    Shoes are cool though…..

  6. Circe says:

    Ehn. I’m not a big fan of this, but I’m getting so sick of her in these short-and-tight mini dresses that I’ll take short-and-wide over that any day now.

    Am liking the hair better and better though.

  7. Meow Mix says:

    Weird as it gives her a tummy and saddlebags. Which I don’t’ think she has either.
    I like the idea of the dress but the cut under the breasts seems to be wrong. Pulls in the wrong places.

  8. caramia says:

    let’s just say it looks comfortable

  9. Rita says:

    I have to sympathise with these celebs who do 50 photo shoots a month and have to look unique and dazzling every time. Some mornings they get up and say f’it…today is potato (no “e”) sack day, but I like it in the top pick. The gold trim is yum.

  10. echolocate says:

    Is this from the same day as the other set of photos? The women changed into new outfits while Sandler wore the same thing? Or is he wearing this every day, and sleeping in it, too?

    Is the shirt supposed to be a distressed, vintage look, or is it actually vintage (as in, Salvation Army)?

    He’s wearing new Adidas, so maybe this is some endorsement deal he has. If so, bad play on the part of Adidas unless there’s a new fashion movement afoot to look like suburban shlubs. I honestly don’t know any working class guys who dress that bad.

  11. Violet says:

    deeply unflattering dress. but her glasses look great.

  12. Vanessa says:

    Wow, she has gorgeous eyes ! I think she looks super cute with her glasses. I also think she has been looking really radiant and happy during this promo tour.

  13. merry says:

    I like it. I would wear it. It probably costs half of my liver, though.
    Also: WOW, those legs. I’m so envious right now!

  14. devilgirl says:

    Good grief. I forgot, Jolie owns the color black, and every style of dress made in that color.

  15. Jackson says:

    Fug dress. Nice frames. And thank you, Brooklyn, for finally coordinating your shoes with your dress in a way that doesn’t make my eyes bleed.

  16. DD says:

    That dress does all kinds of awful to her body. It would be a Jolie look, if it were a lot longer. I like how she accessorized it though, but that’s about it.

  17. Theuth says:

    Didn’t Jolie wore a similar short dress a few weeks after the twin’s birth and people where freking out because she looked “too thin”? I think the problem with Aniston is that her legs are the only thing who don’t show her age: cover them, and she looks no different from a too tanned, bleached woman who’s past her deadline as a cute blondie girl. Her arms are strong, but the armpit’s skin sags; her breasts are lovely, but nothing outstanding; she has great abs, but no waist, so many dress make her thick; and no matter how much her legs are toned, they aren’t long enough to thrill under a “real” dress.
    And I’m sorry if I sound harsh, but…hell, she must have one of the most unfortunate face I’ve ever seen. Her close-up three threads ago looks like the egg faces of one of those troll-toy in the ’90. Loose the colours and the overrated hair, and you’ll see.

  18. Maud says:

    Dear god please don’t let there be another 100+ comments about JS’s outfit, hair, make-up, etc. What are the damn Kardashians up to?

  19. S says:

    Pretty sure this is the only dress I’ve ever seen her wear that I actually wouldn’t mind owning myself. It looks lovely with her new hair.

  20. MissD'banville says:

    How do we find out who the designer is -Would love to know

  21. PDog says:

    @Rita “I have to sympathise with these celebs who do 50 photo shoots a month and have to look unique and dazzling every time. Some mornings they get up and say f’it…today is potato (no “e”) sack day, but I like it in the top pick. The gold trim is yum.”

    Co-sign. Bloat hits every woman once in a while, even the A-listers

  22. Crash2GO2 says:

    Her hair doesn’t look nearly as blond in this set of photos – I was wondering if it was the harsh lighting that was washing everything out yesterday. I think she looks great. You don’t have to show all the goods all the time. And I’m still liking the hair a lot.

    Glad Adam is saving water by not washing or changing his sweats between premiers.

  23. Sherri says:

    I really like the dress . . .she looks relaxed & comfortable in it, while still being fashionable & beautiful-
    win – win

  24. tracking says:

    Had it been more fitted in the upper torso, it might have worked. But just doesn’t flatter her.

  25. Melanie says:

    “. Angelina Jolie is going to homewreck Aniston’s closet to get this dress. La Jolie lusts after this kind of sack dress. It’s just…
    ********************
    Oh LOLOLOL! Kaiser you are so damn funny sometimes. That more than makes up for the two ridiculous choices you gave us to rate the dress! :) :)Thanks for starting my Loooong day with a laugh.

  26. asiont says:

    wow, this dress makes her breasts look saggy….. terrible choice

  27. DD says:

    @Theuth, Jolie looks and is incredibly thin and with the sack dresses she often sports, she always looks unproportionately thick in the middle.

    I think sack dresses just give anyone the illusion of having a thick waist, even if you are stick thin. Those dresses don’t flatter many women.

  28. _Salem_ says:

    Lol, seriously Kaiser, you’re pathetic, linking the 2 together. How desperate of you. And dragging in the ‘homewreck’ comment – I would have thought that would have gone away by now since its since been proven no affair even happened. As for the dress, if that is considered a ‘sack dress’ in ANYONE’s language, I’d hate to think what you think a non-sack dress is. A string bikini? Far from a sack dress, the dress is form-fitting and neat, if somewhat too short. I love it! As for her figure, I really don’t get what you and others see. To me, Aniston has always been a bit chunky, especially around her knees and thighs (I think her legs are her worst attribute, they look short and stocky). Her body is certainly not one I would want. There are far far more fit, sleek and toned bodies in Walmart and amongst the rest of Hollywood. But of course she should have a good figure; she exists on nothing but cigarettes and alcohol. And the same salad for lunch (probably her only daily meal) for the last 20 years. Nothing hard or effort about that. I will say though that I really like her new hair cut bar the excessive bleach. And the bangles look really great and complete the look. A real nice change from jeans and boots/high heels. She looks really nice here.

  29. Sisi says:

    Eww, horrible choice Of dress. Look at the flaps below her arm in the close-up

  30. Marc says:

    I like her casual look. She is natural.

  31. Riley says:

    I don’t normally find Brooklyn Decker very attractive… I know I know. To me she looks like a taller Reese Witherspoon. I think Reese is beautiful and seems so comfortable in her skin. I am sure Brooklyn is also very comfortable with who she is as well, but I am kind of underwhelmed by her because Reese owns the blond hair creamy skin girl next door look and she owns it well. Anyway, that is a very long winded round about way for me to lead into this next statement: I think Brooklyn Decker looks pretty freakin’ adorable here. Maybe adorable isn’t the look she going for but I love her dress and her makeup and her shoes. Of course, I am not sure it is a red carpet look but man it would be so pretty at a spring garden party in France or Northern California or somewhere… About , Jen I would love to have her body… LOVE! … but I think you are right. Her red carpet style is meh. I do have to admit though that I kind of love her everyday girl on the beach girl hiking in the woods girl who likes a hit or two of a bong every so often look. She does casual very well. Red carpet, not so much.

  32. SHump says:

    That dress is awful on her, but I cannot honestly picture a body that it would look good on. The glasses are cute. I hate that every post about JA has to have a reference to AJ in it, though. I can’t believe there is anyone left who hasn’t moved on from all tht at this point… other than celberity bloggers, ofc.

  33. Nanea says:

    This thing doesn’t look like a dress to me but like a stretched-out V-neck sweater.

  34. RHONYC says:

    Take this black potato sack dress, designer unknown

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    uh kaiser, it’s plenty known to all us WALMART SHOPPERS!!!
    huh, ladies ;-)

    it suspiciously looks a lil’ known number called the ‘ALL-IN-ONE’ dress by Norma Kamali for Walmart (with an altered neckline & hem to throw us off the scent, lol).

    i have 2 of ‘em. i wear them to work and/or dinner.

    wearing them on the red carpet is a horse of a different color.

    fail on that AND the streisand hair. :lol:

  35. whybenice says:

    Can’t Sandler muster up a big boy button shirt and at least a washed pair of jeans?

  36. She looks fine. Probably wanted to cover her arms for a change.

  37. Heavenbound says:

    I like the dress, and black is my favorite color. I use to have that same hair cut a few years ago, now its pretty long and layered. And I don’t care if people want me to cut it and “change” I love long hair and men do too.

  38. guesty says:

    so over this premiere. it’s everywhere. & the tourist was the exact same way. over saturation.

  39. luls says:

    i LUV her legs & sandals! she even has pretty toes!
    i must say shes lookin prettier, as of late…..

  40. Glyrics says:

    If she didn’t want someone to look down her V neck, she shouldn’t have warn it. Her whole life is an imitation of Ange.

    Team Brad

  41. someone says:

    Don’t like the dress, but she sure is a beautiful woman!

  42. KsGirl says:

    I can take, and even like sack dresses if theyre: a)short b)paired with great legs and c)paired with great heels. So this works for me.

  43. Reality says:

    I like it, but agree it could be better. Maybe a belt?

    And Angie wishes she could wear this, but her legs are nowhere near as good.

  44. danielle says:

    I think this is very interesting! She’s not sexing it up as much as normal – is she trying to position herself more as a comedian and less as a romantic comedy chick? This movie, the comments about SNL, the less sexy dressing, all make me wonder. It’s a good call, I think. It will position her better for roles as she gets older.

  45. mln76 says:

    The maternity dress looks awful on her but her hair looks better blown out.

  46. kanderson says:

    Don’t like the dress but the hair is FANTASTIC!

  47. flotus says:

    “Choke on the red carpet”! Really? I think Aniston is probably worn out from the press junket (can’t say that I blame her)!

    I love the dress, shoes, hair and make-up. She looks fabulous as always! I would have left the two cuffs off however.

    @Glyrics, “her whole life is an imitation of Ange”. Please! So, I guess everyone that wears black is imitating AJ? Then I guess we are ALL guilty as charged. Heavy on the sarcasm!!!

  48. kathug says:

    I looooove Brooklyn’s dress!

  49. Theuth says:

    @DD: I think only very thin women with short torsos and loooong limbs can look good in this dresses, too. Most clothes in the last years are like this, ugh, can’t find a single shirt/dress/pant which isn’t loose in some point or extremely tight: fashion makes me so angry sometimes. Everyone who has a normal body like Aniston always has a limited range of clothes.

  50. mich says:

    wow yesterdays article she looked every bit her age, today she looks the freshest and most natural I’ve seen her looking in years. Hate the dress, love the new makeup/hair. Now if only she’d add some bright color to her clothes and some darker tones to her hair and she’s look fab.

  51. Cheyenne says:

    I’m indifferent as to the dress but the hair is a definite improvement.

    Brooklyn looks lovely.

  52. dahlia1947 says:

    Ack!! Hell to the NO! The top half makes it look like a mumu! Pretty legs and her shoes are good. That is all.

  53. Franny says:

    I, for one, like that she doesn’t wear that much color. She has a look that she likes, and sticks to it. Like most women that age. You find something you like, and then just find variations. I think most people do that…I doubt most of you go and change your style every year.

  54. Embee says:

    She needs another inch one way or the other on the hair.

    I like the dress. If that’s a gut and saddlebags I’m a monkey’s uncle.

  55. Cherry Rose says:

    She looks good. And I actually like Brooklyn’s dress too.

  56. deap says:

    If the dress was in any light color and with some print in it, it could have been just a sleeping camisole. The only reason it does not look exactly like a sleeping dress it is because it is black and she has accessorized with the bracelets. No attractive dress at all.

  57. Mei says:

    Are those bracelets keeping her sleeves from falling down? Innovative! Bet it’s uncomfortable, though.

  58. Solveig says:

    This dress is not ugly per se, but it’s true it makes her look like she’s wearing a ciambella around her belly. Unflattering. But she is able to make a boring dress interesting wearing very nice – but simple – jewelry.
    I love the shoes, tho.

  59. Cheyenne says:

    @embee: Check the second photo. I don’t see a gut but I do see some saddlebags.

  60. lucy2 says:

    Don’t like the dress, but she herself looks great.

  61. Anon73 says:

    ugh ugh UGH.

    first up : the “faux-intellectual” glasses look does not work for her (or Justin Timberlake, in case someone could whisper that to him).

    second : the dress is not flattering. but maybe she is wearing it to fuel pregnancy rumors as part of a PR play.

    lastly : someone needs to tell Jen to loose her high-end sandals with everything look. it just looks SoCal mall-ish.

  62. flourpot says:

    LOL at the glasses. Jeez, she’s so lame.

  63. Embee says:

    I see the curve but it looks like a well-developed gluteal muscle, not a bag.

  64. jdao says:

    Don’t like the dress – it is shapeless. But I like the accessories.

  65. truthSF says:

    She’s looking more and more like the older version of Barbra Streisand.

  66. Maya says:

    I think it’s so funny, people come on and call her ‘desperate’ and mock her if she wears anything they deem ‘too young’ so she tries out something age appropriate and people come on saying she should dress less frumpy. I personally don’t love the dress but I’m not going to say she looks awful because she quite clearly looks better than the vast majority of us mere mortals, as do most celebs with their millions of dollars. like it or not.

  67. Gwenevere says:

    The dress is dull but her hair looks excellent here! That cut really suits her. Those glasses are great as well. She looks fabulous.

  68. harfang says:

    About the “desperate” thing: She SHOULDN’T be desperate, but she genuinely seems to be regardless. She always looks like she is trying to maintain a perfect façade; her face looks painfully smiley; what we hear about her seems to point toward great anxiety about how she is perceived. She seems like a good person, although I’ve never been that impressed by her as an actress, and millions love her and I wish she would just chill. And yes, this dress is trying too hard in multiple directions.

  69. Melanie says:

    @Harfang: 71. Just to be aware you said the words looks and seems 5 times. This is how YOU perceive her, no one knows her and she has been really blasted by a certain faction of Brad’s fans, so yes she SEEMS really gun shy. Wouldn’t you be? I feel the same way about Jolie’s inane interviews and appearances so I understand the “boring and drunk” references. I am not crying too hard for any of the players in the triangle. They are making money and careers off of it. The people who do annoy are those people that say Jen is too old, ugly ect. Your idol worship is making YOU a joke.(not you Harfang but others who try to convince that Aniston is a pitiful puke of a person)

  70. Maya says:

    To be honest, I don’t much rate her acting abilities either, I think she suits TV far better than film but each to their own. She seems ok, but romcoms aren’t my thing. However back to that whole desperate thing – that goes for half of hollywood, I’d be surprised if the vast majority celebrities actually live the ‘perfect existence’ they try to portray. I don’t see the need to jump on anyone who is famous. I can’t imagine constantly hearing about myself in the news and how old/unattractive/desperate/boring/plain/slutty I look, I think I’d be anxious too maybe. It’s no wonder so many hollywood stunners have ended up just looking stunned with the amount of botox they inject. The fascination with these people and the public just goes too far at times.

  71. Maya says:

    Melanie, I agree. People get so mad it’s scary, they are just three normal people. Brad and Jen didn’t work out and Angelina Jolie fell in love with a married man. Nobody got murdered, nobody commited any crime. It’s far too much at times. It’s over already. What gets me are the constant comparisons. People go on about the ‘better actress’ the two can’t be compared they are different entirely, so until Angelina does romcom (never) then that’s silly. Then the whole Angelina looks hotter and younger than Jen – hello she is younger, by almost a decade – go figure! It’s really petty.

  72. Vanessa says:

    I know I always LOL at “some” people who call her pathetic, when their existence consists of sitting all day and night in front of their computers researching any and every tidbit about her, while all the same claiming to hate her. Now THAT’s pathetic!

  73. serena says:

    It’s totally Jolie-style (black sack + nude shoes).

    She’s trying too hard.

  74. Zzzzzzzzzz says:

    Brooklyn looks great! That dress is really cute on her.

  75. lrm says:

    Not her best look-but not awful…it does make her legs and body look more stout-she’s not that tall….and we all know she is not stout; she’s very toned to the point of slender. Though she prob. could be stout like a gymnast’s build,that seems like her natural physique tendency.

    But, here, I think she looks like barbara streisand, actually!
    the glasses, hairstyle, dress and facial expressions.

  76. Maya says:

    Is it just me that doesn’t get the Streisand comparisons? I don’t think they even look similar in the slightest.

  77. Melanie says:

    @Newbie: So are some of you. :P

  78. mimi says:

    I think she looks great! Very casual yet dressy

  79. Bailey says:

    I do like the dress.
    its a bad fit for her, its highlighting her ham-hocks and giving he a thick waist look.

  80. junk573r says:

    I cannot believe some of the comments that are making it through moderation. Especially # 30 _Salem_. I made one comment a few weeks ago about how the AJ/ JA comparison thing was getting stretched and sad and every SINGLE comment I made for the rest of the day was autobanned or something.

    All I have to say is, I had a pair of candies similar to her shoes about 7 years ago and ohmiGOD they killed my feet in the worst way. Also, if your gnarly hammer toe is popping out of them, maybe a good idea to not wear those shoes.

  81. awful legs says:

    Whoever said her legs are her worst feature was absolutely correct. Her legs are far too short & stubby for a dress that short- it just emphasizes her chubby knees & thighs. The dress itself is ill-fitting. That said, her hair looks MUCH BETTER, but she should cut it even shorter. Also, agree with those who say she should not go so light w/ color. Darker shade would make her look less washed out

  82. Melanie says:

    I wonder who’s career will go first: An action adventure star or a rom com star. Seems to me that nobody is going to want to see a “40 year old woman” swinging around on a building and jumping over cars. Here would be a good line for that “Ouch! My osteoporosis!” How about this for a rom com “Honey, don’t forget the lube!” Just Joking! 40 is not even close to old when we are all living to be on average 80.

  83. Ell says:

    I love the ‘sack’, I’d wear it…it’s cute and highlights her great legs. Also prefer the new hairstyle with the side parting.

  84. melinda says:

    She looks great. Her thighs are chunky? Really? On what universe are her thighs chunky?

  85. nnn says:

    @88

    None of the above.

    A dramatic actress will always last longer, having more interesting options at every age and generations than those two options you gave.

    Which is where Jolie got her multiple awards till two years ago, which is what Jolie was long before she ventured the action roles and which is what she still is as well as an action movie star.

  86. Camille says:

    @Theuth: I agree with most of what you said.
    JA’s body isn’t any better than many others out there. She doesn’t have much of a waist, she has a thick neck, has slightly bulky shoulders and upper arms, short legs and is fairly square hipped so from behind in the wrong outfit (jeans, flat shoes etc) she can look like a man (I remember seeing a candid pic of her like that years ago and I thought it was a dude! :-\).
    Halle Berry or Demi Moore have better figures (if we are going to compare her with any women- it should be women in her age bracket), and both of those women have had kids as well *shrug*.

    I think for the most part JA wears the right outfit that gives her a great shape usually and she plays up her best features; which are her toned legs. So short dresses are her saviour.
    I like this style of dress on her because it covers her arms and shoulders and the V neck softens her neck and shoulders giving her a feminine look, which I think works really well for her.
    I also really like the shoes and her hair looks great too!

    She is not a beautiful woman by any means, but she does make the best of what she has (which I respect) and I am liking that she is trying out slightly more risky fashion/styling choices on this PR tour. Good for her, I hope she keeps changing it up. :D

  87. Sara says:

    I would like to say LOVE THE LOB Jennifer!! Way to change it up finally! The dress could have been super cute if it was some sort of color! Shade of blue or gray to match her eyes. def an upgrade on the shoes from those strappy sandal heels.

  88. Melanie says:

    @91. Neither of them are “dramatic actresses” I don’t care how many awards they get. Laughable.

  89. lachica says:

    maybe she and Brooklyn are taking turns looking hot.

  90. nnn says:

    Jolie is a dramatic actress who keeps on having dramatic roles between the action ones. It’s not even an opinion, it’s a fact. Her professional CV includes more dramatic roles than action ones.

    GIA, Girl Interupted are still till this day her best work as an actres and dramatic roles that launched her career.

    She may not be a credible one in your view, which is your prerogative but she is first and foremost a dramatic actress with more dramatic roles than action ones to her credit and was only that until she turns 26 with Lara Croft, then teh second one, then Mr & Mrs Smith, then Wanted, then SALT. That’s the only action roles she did.

    Even in most pure thrillers like Bone Collector, The Good Shephard her role are dramatic ones.

    So if she keeps on receving dramatic roles, it’s a fact that she is perceived as much as such and will keep on recieving them even more as she aging.

    Next dramatic role, probably ‘Cleopatra’ and before that a dramatic role she directed.

  91. SuperSleuth says:

    Melinda: “On what universe are her thighs chunky?”

    On the planet Anorexia in the galaxy Nervosa. :)

  92. Melanie says:

    nnn,
    I am leaving work. FINALLY. But I cannot let you have the last word.;0. Lets just say that I hope Jolie is a better director than a “dramatic” actress. Maybe once upon a time she was ok, but now her life overshadows her art and she is no better actress than anyone else. In fact I dare say that I find her dramatic turns comedic. “I wannnnt mmmyyyyyy sooooonnnnnn!”

  93. Isa says:

    Jolie won’t be homewrecking JA’s closet because she already owns a dress similar:

    http://www.babble.com/CS/blogs/famecrawler/archive/2008/11/12/angelina-jolie-all-legs-in-her-short-black-dress.aspx

    Although they both seem to like to own EVERYTHING EVER MADE IN BLACK! So no telling. Haha.

    As for JA’s hair, I really wasn’t expecting a cut. It’s just always styled the same. I’ve always thought that Eva Mendes has had some really great updos.

  94. Kimberly says:

    Here’s a theory…… Jen A. Is hoping one day that Ange will tire of Brad and give him the boot. Thus why she is single not by choice but for the obvious. Ange is waiting till Jen A is 50 and is certain that Jen has completed menopause and her eggs are dried up.

    Then Ange will gladly let her have him back after 10 kids of child support. Genius…..meanwhile Jen keeps getting weirder and weirder in the looks department. Here’s hoping Jens dreams come true!

  95. Kimmy says:

    Melanie@ get a life you sound childish and everyone needs to get over this whole triangle thing move one people it’s been 6 years.

  96. lrm says:

    99 posts on JA’s dress at a premiere?!?
    you’ve got to be kidding me!
    so, i had to say hey, that should be 100 posts.
    And I agree-Jolie sucks as an actress for the most part….i wish she didn’t. but she does.
    She is extremely charasmatic, has a presence, and is glamorous/iconic old-school hollywood…but very mediocre at best at acting.
    Happens to the best of ‘em.

    Aniston, on the other hand, sticks to rom-coms and is not awful in them…so she’s mediocre but IMO is not that offensive, b/c she doesn’t take risks in her roles or acting…

    I find Aniston funny-as in comedic. she should do more actual comedy.

    Jolie should just keep doing what she’s doing…cuz let’s face it: she’s hot.
    Oh, and Jolie IS the only female action star out there. No disputing that.

    I think Charlize Theron could do more of that-but most scripts are frankly beneath her acting abilities.

    It’s called: Life or something like it.

    I just watched because it had Edward Burns on it.

    She looks wonderful. The hair, the dress, the shoes. It looks perfect on her. I hope I look this good in my 40′s.

    uum if 2008 is “once upon a time” for you, then you are the one who is laughable and childish.

    Again like i said, it’s your prerogative to feel that way. It doesn’t make your opinion the conscensus in what is happening and have been happening in Jolie’s 15 year old career.

    The fact is, her CV and credit say the contrary that your fantasy does. FACT

    Her forever recorded movies and 20+ roles say the contrary that your mind claims. FACT

    Her profession and colleagues and congratulations by her peers for certain roles say the contrary that you do.

    I go by FACTS not by fantasy related opinions when it’s related to CV and past experiences, just like professionals who hire anyone for a specific job will do. They will check at facts and past experiences.

    So in the grand scheme of things, your opinion contradicting the reality of the past events and facts is what is laughable and what makes you delusional not the other way around.

    But that’s your problem if you prefer to be blind and ignore the facts. It doesn’t matter and won’t change the reality you are so quick to dismiss.

    Reality is, Jolie ‘s got to play more drama roles than action ones : FACT.

    Reality is she keeps on receiving them and will keepon receiving them the more she ages. FACT

    Reality is, last time I check, Cleopatra which is bound to be her next project after the animation isn’t an action role : FACT.

    Reality is, in The Tourist, she wasn’t playing an action character too : FACT.

    Again,drama is her main core business based on her past work. Drama is what she was known for first hand long before action was into the picture and will probably still be her expertise long before she quits the action which by definition is intrinsically shorter career wise.

    Dramas which are again are for me the best roles in terms of depth and interest an actress can play, especially when her options are getting thinner since nobody is interested in seeing an aging woman play the beautiful one or the bimbo but a more deeper character.

    Even Bullock is venturing in it (the Blind Side), as well as Halle who has always mix dramas and comedies since her tiny dramatic role in ‘Jungle Fever’.

    And another thing, “action” is a secondary attribute to the main one. You can do action in a comedic way or do it in a dramatic way. You still have to use either your comedic timing even if you do stunt or your dramatic ones.

    Sigourney Weaver, Anne Parrillaud, Linda Hamilton, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman have all done dramatic roles and show part of their dramatic skills in their action movies. Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz are more into the comedic type ones.
