Angelina Jolie made her first awards-show appearance since The Leg!

Before our Grammy coverage begins in earnest, here’s a quick post about Angelina Jolie! In the midst of huge events like the BAFTAs and the Grammys, Angelina chose to make a quiet appearance at the American Society of Cinematographers Awards last night in Hollywood. She presented Dean Semler with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Semler has been the cinematographer (and often the DP) on about a million films, but one of his last films was In the Land of Blood and Honey, which Angelina of course directed. They also worked together on The Bone Collector. You can see his crazy IMDB here.

Angelina wore Atelier Versace for the event. Allegedly! It doesn’t look like Versace to me, but that’s the fashion ID I can find. The suit thing is pretty enough, and she does love her greys, beiges and blacks. This is – I think? – Angelina’s first Hollywood red carpet in a year. She hasn’t walked a red carpet or made any industry appearances since THE LEG at last year’s Oscars. Some say Angelina really was “punishing” us because people made fun of The Leg. It WAS a punishment! I missed The Leg. I’ve missed The Leg so much during this awards season. Sigh… anyway, Angelina looks good. I guess. I haven’t seen her in so long, I was taken aback. I don’t like her hair slicked back like that. And she doesn’t look pregnant, which is what the tabloids have been saying.

PS… I think she’s wearing “Style of Jolie” earrings, right?

    I agree, it’s good to see The Leg’s back in business. But Angelina looks rough, non? She’s still beautiful of course, and that dress isn’t half bad, but her face… she looks exhausted.

    • Polk8dot says:

      She looks beautiful, but the tired vibe makes her seem frail, and with the weight loss she almost looks sickly.
      I hate the tone of this grey – it looks dirty, cheap and plastic. Plus it seems to weigh a tone, and results in overall appearance of a high class straight jacket.

      Totally LOVE THE SHOES !!!
      They work great with the rest of the look, but even on their own they are just gorgeous.

  2. T.Fanty says:

    She would be SO much better if she were carrying an extra few pounds on her frame.

    • Hpeeps says:

      Agreed. I think she’s beautiful, but her legs looked like they are gonna snap like twigs.

    • Isa says:

      Maybe, maybe not. I do think her legs and arms are kinda spindly, but her torso looks fine. No chest bones poking out or anything and her waist isn’t particularly small. Her body looks to be the type that carries weight around the trunk and the limbs stay relatively skinny. If that’s the case, she could put on 10 pounds and most of it would just end up around the middle which wouldn’t really make her look better IMO.

      • jinni says:

        She definitely has that body type. I think her shape would be improved less by gaining weight through eating more and more by lifting weights and building muscle. A little bit of muscle will make her legs and arms look fuller.

      • Annie says:

        Agreed. She really IS thin, but she does have that type of build/weight distribution that gives the impression of being even thinner than it is (I’ve noticed the opposite holds true – women with thick arms and legs get called “fat” and “curvy” when they are actually thin). I think she looks pretty good as is but if she wanted to look more proportionate she’d have to build more muscle in her arms and legs – if she just ate more w/out training she’d only end up with a belly which I’m sure she doesn’t want.

      • hmmmpf says:

        you know you can put on MUSCLE weight? It’s not about eating junk food, but to work out and eating healthy food. In that case, one would not gain around the mid section, but around the limbs.

      • Isa says:

        @hmmmpf: Sure, but that’s not really where most of the “she’s too thin!!!” comments are coming from. Saying someone is too thin and needs to put on weight implies that that individual is simply not eating enough and is at an unhealthy weight. Which might not really be the case if body shape and type isn’t taken into account. Saying that she needs to add muscle to certain areas so as to look better is a totally different thing. That’s an aesthetic concern and less of a health one.

        I’m not sure exactly which POV the OP was coming from, that she’s unhealthy or that she could improve her shape. My position is that she could improve her shape, but she is not necessarily at an unhealthy weight just because she has thin limbs.

        I have to agree though that she would look a lot better if she does as suggested and gains some muscle around the limbs. It would even help her as an actress I think. When I watched Salt, me and my friend were saying that she just didn’t look strong enough to be believable when she threw punches.

      • Annie says:

        @Isa – Amen to all you said. So much of what is said about women’s bodies under the guise of “concern” for her “health/psychological welfare” is in fact just that: AESTHETIC CONCERNS. Now I know people will instantly argue that nobody can tell them that a person who is nothing but a pile of bones or who is immobilised by obesity simply has an aesthetic however this is a “straw man” arguement, a no shit Sherlock arguement. When it comes to judging someone like Angelina who is still concievably within the healthy range as “too thin” those comments are usually telling us more about that commentor’s personal experience than about Angelina. When they say Angelina is “too thin” what they really mean is “Angelina is too thin for my personal taste” or “Angelina is too thin to massage my ego because if she’s alright does that make me a heffalump?” or “if I was as thin as Angelina I’d feel starving all the time” or simply “Angelina’s body shape is not my personal ideal, I have no desire to look like this”.

        Another good example is actress Isabelle Lucas from Transformers. Can I imagine people not personally wanting to look that thin? Sure. Is she thin to the point of endangering her health? Highly, highly doubt it. At the other end of the spectrum I think worrying about someone like Mo’nique being overweight is also for the most part an aesthetic concern.

      • Annie says:

        Just to add – the gains fat weight on trunk only bodyfat distribution pattern seems to be a more typically MASCULINE weight gain pattern, though obv a few women like Angelina are mostly belly/waist gainer “apple” shapes. Most women typically *do* put on fat on their calves, face and arms when they gain, more so then men. Perhaps that is why women are so quick to slap women with this body type with the “too skinny” tag and say stuff like her legs and face would look better if she just ate more. They just don’t get how some body types work.

      • Jenny says:

        Disagree. I think most people are implying her face would look better if she gained weight

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Jenny, who wrote: “I think most people are implying her face would look better if she gained weight”

        There’s not a thing wrong with her face as it is and I, for one, couldn’t think of anything that would make her face ‘look better’ than it does.

        ‘Most People’ are always going on about how she’s lost weight, when in fact she ‘hasn’t’ lost weight at all. This is the way she’s looked since her mother passed away. She never really re-gained that weight, even during her pregnancies (she just gained boob-age).

  3. beautiful says:

    She looks great! Yes, red carpets are very so blah without her- Angelina is DEFINITELY missed! BTW, Dean is also the DP for Maleficent.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    Oooh, she wore grey! I’m shocked, shocked I tell ya!

  5. ciel says:

    omg. what’s she done to her face!? she looks plastic

  6. Aussie girl says:

    I know it a bad camera angle & yes she is beyond beautiful. Buuuut that first pic kinder gave me a glimps @ what an ageing angie would look like. It looked kind of like jannice Dickinson ???? Yay/nay????

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Definitely getting a Janice Dickinson vibe from these photos-a much prettier and more natural JD though.

      I think Angelina takes much better care of herself than Janice did so hopefully she’ll age better and not eff her face up the way JD did.

  7. afrotastic says:

    Simply beautiful. She can do no wrong in my eyes.

  8. Tanguerita says:

    what happened to her face?she looks like a plastic doll.

  9. Katie says:

    I think I liked her better when she was wild and stirring up controversy.

  10. lisa2 says:

    I don’t see anything Plastic about her face at all. It seems the “statement” to make all the time. Everyone is not messing with their faces.

    I like the dress. Very classy and elegant. She always keeps it pretty simple. Never over does it. I think maybe we see too many celebrities that try hard all the time. We forget what simple elegance looks like.

    this is it.. beautiful woman.

  11. Lizzy1013 says:

    Personally, I don’t like this ensemble. The neckline of the dress is a weird angle… It looks like it can’t decide whether to be off the shoulder or not. And the gray color makes it look like a business suit…a deep red would be very pretty. And the shoes look way too “fun” for the suit. They kind of remind me of shoes snooks or jwoww would wear to a club…the opposite of classy.

  12. Pharce says:

    I love Jolie, and am sad to see her looking so worn out. Bad makeup, too thin, awful hair. I do like the dress, though.

  13. Jesse says:

    Dean Semler is my ‘Six Degrees’ link. We were both born/grew up in the same small Australian town though many years apart.
    The world truly is a small place.

  14. tracking says:

    She looks utterly exhausted. The cut of the dress is beautiful, but the color washes her out.

  15. Dingo says:

    I think her body looks good – but the face please stop right now before the Kidman-look kicks in.

  16. Jayna says:

    Fillers? I don’t see it at all. Natural aging process. Smile lines around the mouth. Eyes have less fullness underneath.

  17. Amy85 says:

    Brad and Angelina only attend award shows when they are nominated or to honor a friend. Stupid to say she hasn’t attended because of punishment or embarressment. The haters have been calling Angelin ugly, plastic, etc since being with Brad. It’s white noise now especially since she pretty much looks the same for years.

  18. dorothy says:

    She’s starting to show her age.

    • megs283 says:

      NOT THAT! anything BUT THAT!!!

      • Aging is a Felony says:

        Oh, no, never, ever age- she should wear a teeny-bopper dress and big hair and find a younger dude to escort her around STAT. Angie has stated REPEATEDLY over the years that she thinks it more important to educate herself to make her INSIDE beautiful. That said, I think she looks very pretty and TASTEFUL for an event that is probably 90% old men over 55.

    • Micki says:

      Will you suggest something?
      Should she show her age or should she fight it?
      P.S. Aging…: Agree with your comment.Makes sense that’s she’s dressed so.

      • dorothy says:

        I guess I should have stated that in another way…. She looks tired and haggard, not because she’s older.

      • Aging is a Felony says:

        Angie has never fought her age, so we shouldn’t expect her to now- if anything, she’s usually dressed a little older than her age. When she wore leather pants in her 20s, it was with a top that let her belly peak out & combat boots- very young, very of the time. Leather pants in her 30s? Sure, but long sleeve sweater & heels. She is a mom of 6 who has always been very good at dressing appropriate to the occasion. As a mom I get that- I also try very hard not to wear jeans or sweats when out of the house…although I did borrow my son’s hoodie to run out for the paper & coffee this AM- yikes!

      • Micki says:

        @Dorothy: I wasn’T harping on your comment, that was a sheer curiosity on my part.
        I personally prefer no work done because as the Great Meril said once “the face has to act too”.
        On the other hand I don’t have to live a celebrity life and I don’t have a clue under what presure they put their brave smile every single day.So whatever makes them happy I guess.

        @Aging: Agree again, It’s getting funny.
        May I say how much I like her “sack” dresses? Noone pulls a sack like Angelina.
        Personally I don’t own even one pair of jeans.I don’t like myself in them so I don’t buy them.
        Sweats- only sport studio and occasionally walking the dog. Unfortunately my kids are too small to borrow anything… I used to wear my husband’s shirts and (he says)his trousers.

  19. Ang says:

    Wow..She is so lovely, looks worn out though.

    • Stormy says:

      You actually wore a hoodie.(gasp)lol.Im a youngish mom of 3,and I live in yoga pants and sweats,and frankly have never judged anyone for wearing if the sort.I actually find it strange that women think that way,but I guess since I’m from the mid west…must be a different planet.

      • Lady D says:

        The jeans part puzzled me. I’m 52 and I would have absolutely no problem whatsoever wearing jeans. I love my jeans. I hope you don’t mind sharing your planet.

      • JudyKay says:

        The reason her face is shinny is because she does not GOB on the make the make up. I have yet to see a make up line on her face or white cream under her eyes. She does not plump her lips as they have enough plump of their own and have since she was born and her kids have the same lips. I am 69 years old. I have watched this woman grow up. I also have thin arms and am big busted and weigh 110 pounds at 5’3..not every woman loses her breast size when they lose wieght and some don’t gain it in the bust either. Having kids sometimes helps us add to the cup sieze ..I was thanksful for that LOL The snarky remarks about her looking haggard are just that snarky and I am sure that when it come to nice skin and a good body thin arms or not, not too many of us in here can beat her beauty. I like her and she is not a heroin addict and all the stuff that the Jenhens love to say because they can’t find anything intelligent to say LOL. i think she is aging nicely and she dresses like someone in her late 30′s and she doesnt try to dress like these 50 yr olds who think they are still teenagers. Good for her. I wear wranglers and they still Good for aj

  20. T.C. says:

    She looks beautiful but her legs are a little too thin.

  21. bns says:

    I love her, but she has the worst fashion sense. Bad dress and worse shoes. Her makeup looks awful, too.

  22. Vivian says:

    Love her too but she does look ver tired! Terrible dress and I agree that she should gain some weight because without it, it makes her face too harsh.

  23. JudyK says:

    Hated the dress until I saw the full view.

    Actually, I think it works on her and LOVE her shoes. Think she looks beautiful and classy.

  24. Emma says:

    Such a stunning beauty. btw she made a public appearance at the Wonen in the World Summitt where she walked the line and did press literally like a week after the “The Leg”.

  25. keep watching says:

    Her boobs look pretty darn huge- the 1st sign for her re: pregnancy. Or it could be a really good bra- a bra I wish I could find! Also, she’s 37, not 25- being 37 (or OLDER) is a crime MANY of us have committed, unless we decide to take a dirt nap. At least she puts something back into the world.

  26. shewolf says:

    She looks bland. I dont know how its possible for AJ to look bland but she did it.

  27. JL says:

    Her face looks jacked to me, I barely recognized her in the cover picture. She’s a stunning woman, tweaking isn’t necessary!

  28. A. says:

    She should really gain a few pounds.

  29. serena says:

    I love her but she really looked tired and the dress was simply tragic, it should have been longer.

    Also she needs to cut and restyle her hair.

    • Appropriate says:

      What is she supposed to wear- a sparkly mini dress like she did for the Salt premiere?! No, Angie was there to honor a friend- she gave a very lovely speech while wearing an event/age appropriate dress. I’m glad she tunes out the haters & liars and just wears what she likes- it adds to her beauty. She probably should of worn black so you would have more to hate.

  30. Dredz says:

    She looked good, would have looked better with some face powder on.

  31. floretta50 says:

    I think Angie looks great don’t know what others are seeing,I think she has put on weight, especially across the middle. Devil’s advocate, Angie has been gone for a long time anyone sure she hasn’t given birth?

  32. bella says:

    this does not look like the jolie at all.
    i thought it was that actress…hmmmm…let me google it…oh, i can’t figure it out…
    point is THIS does not look like jolie if not for the pics of the super scary skinny body…

  33. coconut says:

    that guy’s hands and fingers are HUGE.

  34. Dap says:

    On the last photo, she is just a skeleton with big boobs

  35. Feisty says:

    I love that dress. I’m sure it wouldn’t look the same on me, but I’m surprised how much I want it now.

  36. YummyMummy says:

    I think her boobs do look bigger. Fatigue, pale she could have morning sickness. Her legs and arms look so thin but her torso looks normal. Time will tell

  37. Under Arrest says:

    So true- Angie should have died at 22 or 23 (@1st gray hair!) and should have died Brad at 30 or 31 (@2nd wrinkle!!)- that way, they couldn’t have committed the high crime of aging. SO AWFUL- they should be in jail for being so old. Nevermind all the good, kindness, and entertainment that they have brought the world or the six wonderful children they parented- all of that matters not when you are over 20 and AGING!

    • Cameron says:

      I always think people put too much emphasis on Angie and Brad’s looks. They are no longer in their 20′s. So why don’t you just keep watching Gia and Legends in the Fall for memories. I wonder what Marilyn Monroe, James Dean would look like today if they hadn’t died young.
      Btw, I love Angie’s dress and ITA she just looks tired. I always like nude or coral lipstick on her as opposed to dark
      red. She’s still a beauty.
      Also Angie did appear at the International Woman Summit in NYC right after the Oscar’s. So much for hiding out. The only event I recalled she missed last year was Cannes.

  38. Barbara says:

    Take pity ladies…3 kids made me tired, imagine 6. She always has thin legs and arms, even when pregnant. I understand it, I have always had toothpick arms no matter what my weight. Just the way I am built.

  39. Christina says:

    She looks tired?? Of course she does, she has 6 kids for flurghs sake!!! She does not look like she had any surgery. She looks beautiful, and yes definitely tired. I love her dress, very classy. She has always been on the thin side. She is thinner now, but I am sure she puts her kids before herself and that can take a toll on one’s health and appearance. Brad has been busy with many movies and commercials and whatnot, so I would bet she did not have as much help from him with all the kids. I know they have nannies, but they truly do most of it themselves, unlike many celebs. Nowadays, these paps and photogs use HD cameras, which rarely anyone ever looks that good close up with! No one should be judging her shiny, aging face unless they would be willing to get their own photo taken by one of those intrusive red carpet cameras. I know I would not wanna see what a hot mess I would look like…YIKES!

  40. videli says:

    Aww, Lara Croft is aging! And it seems she also has the gorgeous aging gene.

  41. anneesezz says:

    Why do people always think they need to come to her defense if someone makes a negative comment? She doesn’t care what some anonymous person sitting at a computer thinks so why care enough to reply to all the negative comments?

    • Great Lady says:

      You’re right- Angie doesn’t care what people say about her and that makes her (and anybody else who frees themselves from the vanity of “what are they SAYING about ME”) a happier person. Angie & Brad have many, many fans but no PR. Angie is one of the most LIED ABOUT stars if not the most lied about star ever- I’m not sure if it because of jealousy or having no PR, but it is good the truth always comes out eventually. Both she & Brad are very good to their fans- they spend hours signing autographs and they make wonderful art to put out into the world. Because Angie is so kind, honest, hard-working, and does so much for others, she engenders great admiration and loyalty in her fans. The fans like to correct the lies. I think it’s quite remarkable how much inspiration people from all over the world take from Brad & Angie, who handle it all with such humbleness!

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Because this isn’t Female First or Ian Halpern … because we can.

    • Sal says:

      Probably for the same reason hypocrites like yourself and the Jenloons feel the desperate need to rush to Aniston’s defense if even one post about Aniston is negative.

  42. taxi says:

    I like the dress & minimal make-up.

    She & Brad were at the BAFTAs.

  43. G says:

    She looks tasteful,confident and upscale. She was there to support her friend and she did it without upstaging anybody.

    She does look a bit tired…..

  44. Paige says:

    I am a huge Angie fan. People seem to forget her and Brad are getting older. Do some of you really believe they were going to look like Tyler Durden and Lara Croft forever. Angie doesn’t look to have had any work done. She can still smile and move her face. She just looks a little older because she needs more weight in her face.If she gained about 15lbs her face would look very different. She is still a stunning woman,but most people think she looks like Lara Croft. She has always been thin.As a teen and in the mid-20′s. She was just bigger in the waist and hips, but her limbs have always been thin. I repeat ANGELINA JOLIE is not LARA CROFT. She was that way for a movie role. I think she got thin when her mom died and she has never been the same weight. It is alot of work raising six kids even if they do have nannies. She is always traveling and doing so many things at once.She will soon be directing another film. All these aren’t excuses for her to be thin, but anyone can see the woman has a lot on her plate and always has since early 2000′s. In her 20′s she only had one child, not six. Sorry for the long rant.

  45. Karma Karla says:

    She looks like her mother, smiling for the camera but wan and sad and alone.

  46. KellyinSeattle says:

    Maybe she’s worn out from all the kids.

  47. OhMyGawh says:

    I’d like the dress if it was made of a different fabric and the sleeves fitted to her arms. I do like the earrings however. Nice subtle pop of color.

  48. LoL says:

    She looks like Angie. Love seeing news about her but I hope she goes back into hiding. She leaves for months, she comes back to nothing but criticism because she still doesn’t look or act like y’all want her to look or act lol

    • Brittney says:

      Yep, and the saddest part is that the criticism is always devoted in large part to her looks. She does more for the world than 95% of Hollywood, yet posts about her inevitably turn to plastic surgery debates. In my opinion there’s pretty much no argument to be had — beauty might be subjective, but hers is more in-your-face obvious than just about anyone else. It’s just the icing on the cake, though, and if someone doesn’t agree with me, well… there’s still the whole damn rest of the cake. There is SO much more to her than a pretty (or haggard, whatever) face, and it’s sad to see all of it ignored so frequently. You’re right that she can’t win; if she dresses up to the nines, she’s an attention whore, and if she just throws something on to support a friend, she’s getting old and ugly. Whatever.

  49. Zwella Ingrid says:

    I really don’t like her. I’ve never been a fan, and I began actively disliking her after Brad left Jennifer for her. However, since that time she has conducted herself in a classy manner. I don’t think she looks tired, I think she looks beautiful. I don’t believe she has had any work done. Her weight appears to be much the same as it has been for years. Her outfit is beautiful and classy. Retro look and material. Her conduct and the way she has taken care of her children has impressed me, despite my desire to dislike her. So even though I can’t yet convert into a fan, I have to give her some respect.

    • Janet says:

      Thank you for a very intelligent comment.

      Angie has always been stick-thin, except when she bulked up for the Lara Croft movies. This was her at Cannes in 2007, five and a half years ago. I wanted to force-feed her a cheeseburger when I saw that photo. She was absolutely skeletal. She either has the world’s smallest appetite or the worlds most active metabolism.

      • Loira says:

        If I remember correctly, Angelina’s mother, Marcheline, died in January of 2007, after that, Angelina was grieving and lost some weight, which on her a few pounds on and off are very noticeable.
        She had to walk all those 2007 red carpets either with her mother gravelly ill or just passed away. I can’t imagine facing all those photographers and going thru that. Losing a parent that one loves so much is a terrible thing, one loses a friend that will miss him/her forever.
        She was very thin still when filming Wanted and The Changeling that same year, then got pregnant with the twins.
        It took her a long time to gain the weight back. Some people are like that.

    • Sal says:

      Brad did not leave Jennifer for Angelina. Brad and Jennifer broke up long before Brad got together with Angelina. So you bought the tabloid lie of an affair and ‘actively dislike’ a woman all because you believed a lie?

      Aniston is not the innocent victim you were lead to believe by those venomous rags. She chose a career over Brad and she abandoned Brad. Aniston is also a homewrecker who stole Justin from Heidi Bivens. She broke up a 14 year relationship and home. So why don’t you ‘actively dislike’ Aniston for being a homewrecking slut?

      Angelina did nothing wrong. She had nothing to do with Brad and Aniston’s marriage breaking up. When are people going to get that through their heads?

      I actively disliked Aniston since I saw how she had a hand in spreading a tabloid lie and threw her husband and Angelina and their innocent children under a bus so she could have her pity parties and be the ‘victim’ instead of the instigator and marriage wrecker she is. That she then turned around and seduced another woman’s man on the set of Wanderlust and stole Heidi Bivens man shows what a homewrecking cheating slutbag she is. Wake up from your 8 year tabloid lie and witch hunt of an innocent woman like Angelina. But you ar4e right about Angelina conducting herself in a classy manner and not dignifying the lies that were spread about her and Brad while Aniston went on every talk show and did all manner of interviews to perpetuate her self-induced status of ‘victim’. Aniston got down into the gutter while Angelina was classy and dignified in the face of the most horrific tabloid lies and character assassination by Aniston’s camp.

      Save your sympathy for the good women like Angelina and Heidi Bivens, not a piece of shit like Aniston who screwed her way to the top and is a man-stealing whore.

      • Dap says:

        Oh come on! I don’t care Pitt left Aniston for Jolie, but her fan’s urging that no such thing ever happened is just pure naivety. Re-read what Pitt said about how and when Zahara’s adoption took place. Not only was Pitt banging Jolie while still married to Aniston, but they were also both actively trying to have a child together.

      • ColdRock says:

        Dap it seems you’re the one being naive. Aniston denied there was an affair, so did her friends. It seems its naive to believe tabloids when all participants including crew on M&MS said the same thing. Zahara’s adoption took place by Angelina only, originally, and was later adopted by Brad. Well after his divorce. Not only did Brad and Angelina not get together until after Jennifer got together with Vince and after their separation, but by all interviews, actual interviews, not tabloid stories, they were not actively trying to have a child together at all. Please stop gullibly believing everything you read in tabloids and stick only to the facts.

        Yes, ColdRock, let’s see what’s in real interviews, not tabloid, shall we? Brad Pitt’s interview with Parade, maybe?

        “When Angie and I first met, we came together quite quickly and we decided we were adopting. Now the rules are that because we are not married, I can’t adopt. Angie adopts. We decided we were adopting a daughter. We were going to do it right out of the gate. We were not going to mess around. Angie said, ‘No shopping [for kids].’ I thought that was astute and beautifully put. It took the pressure off of adoption and brought a magic to it. We had set our parameters—we had room in our family if anyone needed a home. We got the call, and that’s our eldest daughter, Zahara”.

        Funny how what he says here is the exact opposite of what you states, isn’t it? Now, who shall I believe I wonder? You who don’t even know those people or Brad Pitt, who even if not very bright, did adopt this little girl? Mmmmhhh, that’s an hard one…

      • Runs with Scissors says:

        Aniston and Pitt separated in January. Six months later, Jolie adopted Zahara. Pitt moved on quickly, but there was no affair.

      • ColdRock says:

        Didn’t you read the interview? It BACKS UP my point! That Angelina was ony able to adopt as a single woman because Brad and Angelina weren’t married! Brad adopted Zahara once Zahara and Angelina were on American soil. And that was six months after Brad and Jennifer split. Comprehension is as important as research. Funny how you didn’t see that interview proved me right and you wrong.

      • Dap says:

        @ColdRock : No, sweety, what he says is that they decided TOGETHER that they were adopting a child (“When Angie and I first met, we came together quite quickly and we decided we were adopting”) and they decided TOGETHER that only Jolie would do the legal process because they were not married.
        The question is when did that decision occured? After or before the divorce? Check the dates: if it was after the divorce, the adoption process must have been the quickest process in all the history of adoption.
        Since they claimed they refused any preferential treatment (and I’m willing to give them credit for that), the decision must have been taken by the end of 2004 -certainly not after march 2005.

    she is still so beautiful …

  51. Eleonor says:

    Say what you want about Angelina, but her face is amazing.

  52. mimi says:

    What happened to her upper lip?

    The middle part is so bloated it’s gotten to a distorted shape.

    I wish she stop messing with her face.
    She was pretty before all the work done to her face.

    When will all those beautiful ladies learn?

    and yes, she is BEAUTIFUL. Glad to see her back.

  53. Gloriana says:

    Flying under the radar for a while to get some work done. It’s so obvious!

  54. sparkles says:

    I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED that sparkly black mini-dress she wore for Salts’s LA red carpet! Brad was clean shaven for Moneyball & they looked so cute together!! I do agree that her dress choice here is event appropriate and anything “flashier” would look silly & tacky.

  55. Hipocricy says:

    She looks tired but still beautiful.

    She used minimal make up cause she is secure enough to appear that way. If she had put as much make up as her peers to erase traces of fatigue we wouldn’t have noticed it.

    Make up do wonders, especially on paler skin.

    I like her outfit a lot but i would have accesorized it with a thin necklace…she has such a feminine graceful swan like neck.

    I also would have had velvet gray stilletoes and a loose chignon to complete the whole look.

    Other than that, she is elegant and looks fine and healthy to me. She doesn’t need weight (she could but that is not the problem), she just need more definition on her type of frame to balance her heavier upper body versus thinner lower body (women usually have it the other way around).

    This is done with a smaller waistline dcefinition to underline the hips more, giving the illusion that they are as wide as the upper body and therefore balance the whole body frame making it more curvaceous.

    A trick models use a lot and that Jolie used in her wardrobe for The Tourist with small waist dresses.

  56. VJ says:

    IMHO, Angelina is still the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. She looks fantastic and she has a wonderful life, and of course, she’s going to age like everyone else.

    She’s good hearted, and Brad Pitt is a lucky man, and I think they’re good for each other. What a nice, happy family.

  57. Snowpea says:

    I don’t usually click on Ange stories because of the lunatics who come out swinging but dear god, AJ HAS HAD WORK DONE on her eyes!

    That face is so beautiful! God I hope she doesn’t chuck a Kenny Rogers…

  58. Loira says:

    Her eye makeup is a bit different than her usual natural/ nude/ cat eyeliner style. She is wearing false eyelashes and no eyeliner in the lower lashline.
    Everytime there is an award show, there is someone saying she had work done, and that is because her makeup changes the way she looks.
    Many had claimed that she had surgery to make her eyes “cat like”, and then she goes to a UN trip with no makeup and her eyes seem rounder again.
    Google her with makeup and no make up and compare, her looks change a lot.

  59. Brittney says:

    Skimmed the comments above briefly & decided it was best to stop at that — skimming. Just came here to thank you for posting these. She looks absolutely stunning, but what’s great about these pictures is how genuinely happy she is to be supporting a talented friend. Speaks wonders about her character that she’s so loyal to the people who have helped her.

  60. evyn says:

    I think she is pregnant. Her face and boobs always fill in when she’s preggers. Look at how that belt is cinching her waist. For her arms and legs to be so skinny, her waist is kinda wide.

  61. booger says:

    I don’t think she was punishing us for making fun of “the leg”. She probably just wanted to be more low profile for a while.

  62. lisa2 says:

    Just for the interested fans. I say that because I know the people that don’t like her would be interested. Here is a cute account of a photographer that was surprised by her appearance and his feelings. It is what happens when they photograph real A list stars. And she is very A list.

  63. Shannon says:

    Hate the sleeve length on her dress.

  64. Asdfg says:

    Uh, I have to disagree with everyone who says she hasn’t had work done! Botox, fillers, etc!

    Look at her forehead! It’s not normal to have a super smooth forehead at her age!

    I’m only 21 and I have fine lines on my forehead! :(

    Her skin is flawless! So jealous!!!!

    • EmmaV1 says:

      Look at real high definition close ups. She has lines on her forehead as well as some crow’s feet.

      Light reflecting makeup and oily skin hide wrinkles under lighting….which is what Jolie has right now.

      But yes, ALL actresses past 30 basically have some wrinkles and lines and Jolie’s skin quality is wonderful….very even toned, smooth, and clear, which is why she wears very little foundation and skips powder, which gives her that shiny look unfortunately.

  65. lady X says:

    She looks very pale and actually look her age here .. but hey she has 6 kids so i understand … What makes her look old and tired is that she is underweight for her height …. When women (especially white) age .. you should do your best to keep in some weight … because the less weight ages you badly

  66. blonde on the dock says:

    I think she looks pretty and I like the dress on her. It’s a little wide on the shoulders and the sleeves are rather strange but overall it’s a good look for her.

  67. bELLA says:

    I just love that rock on her finger!!!!

  68. Amanda W says:

    I’m pretty sure she wasn’t really hiding, right?

  69. Bren says:

    Her face does not look different at all.

    See these pics of her onstage…

    The lighting in the other pics was ruining it.

    You know, I’ve gone back and forth about Angelina. I’ve liked her, not liked her, thought she was too thin, yadda yadda. I have now made an executive decision. I love her. She is a fantastic mother, goes out of her way for people who have nothing in this world. Even though she’s thin, she doesn’t look unhealthy, she looks stunning. She loves her man. She turned down Gerard Butler and Colin Farrell when they were dying to have her. (I truly believe that). *Ain’t nobody got time for dat!*. She waited to find the perfect mate and the perfect father for (any?) future children and she found him. She’s a great actress and I would also have my way with her if I could. Done. OMG am I a Brangeloonie now? No, I’m not. She is still simply human just like we all are, with flaws and just making the best of this life. Kudos.
    P.S. I miss my mom like she misses hers. I get it. It’s so tough at times.

  71. lindy says:

    Wow, those collarbones could neatly slice through a slice of pie. Plus, there’s enough grease on her face to fry me up a batch of hot wings.
