Yes, another Angelina Jolie story – I covered her Newsweek cover story here. There are new photos too, but we don‘t have them. You can see La Jolie in white here. She’s going to be on Nightline tonight, and ABC News has released a short clip of her interview with Christiane Amanpour, which I’ve included below. I actually laughed a little bit at the quotes that got released. Christiane asks Angelina if she and Brad will ever get married, and as Angelina is describing how the kids ask that too, Angelina says: “I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake.” That really speaks to her as a mom, right? She knows her kids, and it’s not like the kids even really understand “marriage” – but she knows they understand CAKE. I imagine Empress Zahara would be all, “Yes, we want cake. And gelato. And PONIES.”
She says: “I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake. They have asked, yeah, because … people get married in the movies. Shrek and Fiona are married, you know? We’ve explained to them that our commitment, when we decided to start a family, was the greatest commitment you could possibly have. Once you have six children, you’re committed.”
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again – I don’t think Angelina would mind marrying Brad. I think she kind of wants to have a real ceremony and everything, and she might even be encouraging the kids’ questions about it, and Brad is the one who doesn’t want to go down the aisle.
