Enquirer: Angelina Jolie hates ‘copycat’ Charlize Theron, ‘there’s no love lost’


For my money, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie have two of the best bitchfaces in Hollywood. And by that I mean… if they’re not actively trying to smile or look pleasant, their “natural bitchface” or “resting bitchface” comes out. And that affects how we think of them too. Angelina is always cast as The Villainess in tabloids and often in films. Charlize plays the villainess too, but mostly we just tend to think that Charlize can take care of herself, you know? The general feeling is that Charlize can throw down and kick your ass. So, obviously, Charlize and Angelina are close in age and they’re often up for the same roles. But there’s never any stories about how they get along or whether they even have a casual acquaintance. The National Enquirer is trying to make that into something.

In a real Hollywood shocker, The ENQUIRER reveals that screen sirens Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are embroiled in a major league catfight!

We’re the first to report on how the glamorous stars, both 38, have squared off over the remarkable similarities in their careers, humanitarian work and families, and Angelina believes Charlize is a copycat.

“There’s no love lost between them,” said a source close to Angelina. “She’s convinced that Charlize latches on to everything she does.”

Both actresses are Oscar winners who were linked to the same role. They both have served high profile posts with the United Nations. And both are adoptive moms.

Now, the insider adds, Angelina is in “an absolute fury” over Charlize’s relationship with Sean Penn because she wonders whether her rival is gunning to be part of Hollywood’s newest activist couple, with designs to eclipse Angelina and her partner Brad Pitt.

It’s an ugly battle between two of TinselTown’s most celebrated beauties and, as always, The ENQUIRER has ALL the juicy details.

[From The National Enquirer]

I had to look up Charlize’s work with the UN because I didn’t have any memory of her being an ambassador. But she is – she’s a UN Messenger of Peace, focusing on HIV prevention. So… Charlize and Angelina both do good works with the UN, they both seem like they can take care of themselves, they both play the villainess and they both have adopted children. It seems like they would have a natural and substantive friendship, right? But I guess not. Maybe it has more to do with Charlize hanging out with Chelsea Handler though. Or maybe…? I don’t even know. Seriously, how is it that Charlize and Angelina aren’t friends already?

    I highly doubt Angelina is the kind to be like “I’m the only person who can be doing good works! Don’t you dare get involved with bettering the planet!” I think her goal would be to promote more people in the media to be involved with charity and raising awareness.
    She’s a freakin UN ambassador for how many years? This article makes it out like she would consider it a competition and no one can “eclipse” her. Yeah right.
    It baffles me how a woman who does so much good in this world, so much more than the average person, gets constant shade like this.

    • doofus says:

      just what I was thinking. if someone’s doing good, I’d like to think a compassionate person like Jolie would be like “you go, girl, do some good”.

      and why…WHY…do the rags always have to make it a rivalry between two successful, beautiful women?! Can you see them doing a story about how Pitt is in “an absolute fury” because Penn (or Clooney, or Damon, etc) are doing charity work? crikey…

    • Annaloo. says:

      There would be nothing fiercer than Angelina and Charlize joining forces. It might get a little more awesome if Seth Rogan joined the team too.

      Remember the days when the crazy lady down your street who never left her house or your cousin with her front teeth missing were the only ones who read the Enquirer & Star? =-)

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Thank you. She does incredible amounts of good, with both her money AND~even more importantly~her actual TIME. Her precious time, that she could be devoting to schmoozing Hollywood types for an extravagantly empty lifestyle, playing up to the tabloids for publicity, or making vacuous films devoid of any true meaning. Instead, she brings light and attention into the dark hidden ugly shadows of the world, using her celebrity status to make a true difference in conditions that women and children in particular face in other less media friendly parts of the world. I doubt that she has much time for a catfight of such shallow proportions. And can we please stop using the term “bit@hface”? It is such a demeaning thing to say about other women, and/or ourselves~semantics COUNT, even if on a subconscious level. Why can’t we say “di@kface” instead? Make a derogatory reference to men, if we have to make a derogatory reference at all?

      • Emelu says:

        After watching the youtube video on resting bitchface, and dying laughing, I realised I suffered from it. I can’t figure out what’s demeaning about a joke video that went viral. I’m a dyed in the wool Southern Belle as well, and love What Southern Girls Say. Is that demeaning as well? If I’m missing the sensitivity chip, please feel free to set me straight.

  2. mimif says:

    Do you actually believe this bs or is it a slow news day? ;)

    • LadyMTL says:

      I’m leaning towards slow news day, lol. I wish these tabs would stop trying to make “female actress X hates female actress Y” stories happen.

    • Kiddo says:

      The wizardry of pasta and the magic of Aveeno didn’t answer that question for you? LOL

    • QQ says:

      A massive crock of shit for a middling Gossip week (cause the Whitebread Conscious Uncoupling of the Century is really not taking anyone in the Gossip world’s breath away!)

    • QQ says:

      Lol MIMI!! I never denied the white bread wasnt cooked in a fancy backyard rare earth and mediterranean muds brick oven

      • The Original G says:

        Not to highjack your post, but you did bring up Goop.

        Remember that blind item a while back about a movie star with few female friends who invites one of her last ones and her kids over for a play date while in England? Movie star goes out on an errand and friend sleeps with husband. It was widely discussed to be Angelina and Gwen Stefani, with Angelina doing Gavin.

        Well, I didn’t believe it but now I’m throwing shade on Goop, Chris and Kate Hudson.

      • Cecilia says:

        Ooooooh…Original G — you are good. It was the general consensus that it was AJ but you might have something there. I will ponder.

      • PrettyTarheelFan says:

        Wasn’t just consensus, was “revealed.” But we all know that can be a crock o’ Enty Shit.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Cecilia … (I know you didn’t post the excerpt below, I’m using it for logic)

        “Remember that blind item a while back about a movie star with few female friends who invites one of her last ones and her kids over for a play date while in England? Movie star goes out on an errand and friend sleeps with husband. It was widely discussed to be Angelina and Gwen Stefani, with Angelina doing Gavin.”

        If ‘the Movie Star’ goes out on an errand and the friend sleeps with her husband, how could the ‘general consensus’ have concluded it was Angelina Jolie? Gwen Stefani isn’t a Movie Star and Brad didn’t go on the play date nor are they married?

        The same goes for that ‘Cuba Blue’ Blind supposedly about Matt Damon. It says Cuba Blue is ‘reformed.’ Matt Damon was never a ‘Bad Boy’ so there wouldn’t have been anything to reform from. Logic, people … it’s called logic.

      • The Original G says:

        @Emma-The jP Lover

        I was unclear, sorry. I’m jet lagged. But you remember the blind and the gossip. I never believed it was AJ, but it also does seem to fit the Goop situation. Of course, these blinds are often so general it’s often only a matter of time before they fit SOME situation.

        I’d look it up but CDAN is way to tedious.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @The Original G …

        Sorry, luv … I wasn’t shading anyone, just pointing out how Blinds will often have one word, phrase, description that doesn’t fit the ‘popular’ guess and people will overlook it because they ‘want’ it to be the popular guess. ‘Movie Star’ and ‘husband’ stuck out at me for the Blind you’re remembering, and ‘reformed’ always stuck out at me for that ‘Cuba’ Blind.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Mimif, who wrote: “Do you actually believe this bs or is it a slow news day?”

      I think it’s a slow news day. We’ve learned with ‘after the fact’ news about Angie’s surgery that ‘sources close to Angelina Jolie’ don’t leak information. And the “Enquirer” excerpt is such an obvious fabrication in a ‘Hey! Let’s throw this against the wall and see if it sticks!’ kind of way. Shameless.

    • Dagmarunger says:

      They were both in Sydney, Australia this year. Charlize dined about 2 minutes from where Angie was staying. I thought they would at least give a shout out but nothing.

  3. Dedre says:

    I would cheat on JLaw to have this friendship happen! How epic would that be!

  4. Maria says:

    Angie isn’t worried about her anymore than Charlize is worried about Angie.

    This is just another example of pitting two successful women against each other.


  5. mzizkrizten says:

    I think Angelina is above such petty crap. I think she’d be happy anothter celeb is working with the UN. I think she’s too busy with all those kids and traveling and directing to even spend an iota of her time being jealous of another woman.

  6. Samantha25 says:

    This is just another dumb story. If they hated each other for years why is this story just coming out now? Also not being friends doesn’t mean they’re enemies.

  7. Lex says:

    Why would anyone ever care if there were MORE people bringing attention to charities? None of the people mentioned seem like people who would get huffy if they weren’t seen as the #1 “best” humanitarians… It’s sad to think it is someone’s (probably many someones) JOB to write this garbage. What an amazing contribution they’re making to society

  8. lower-case deb says:

    evil queen from snow white and maleficent? Totes Best Buddies!!

    and Ursula as played by Eddie Izzard. (yea one can hope)

  9. Um, what? Do we even know if they’ve met? Angelina hadn’t met Johnny Depp in the 20 some odd years she’s been in Hollywood.

    It just seems really random, but not. Because they have all those similarities……eh, I put it down as Angelina being in the news for Maleficent.

    Also–I love Zahara’s bitch face, and her green earrings…jealous. My ears bled HORRIBLY when I was a kid, so my mom stopped trying to let us wear earrings. I’m talking that I had big scabs of blood covering the entire lobe.

  10. gennline says:

    Another false story to pitch women against each other.The trash media looking for a way to bring down Angie.Too late, Angie put in the work years ago and is reaping the reward, the people who work with her, respect and admire her and know she is the real deal.
    There will be no substitutes.

  11. Rhea says:

    Nah. Charlize is too busy with Penn right now while Jolie is busy juggling with her projects and family. Seriously, why can’t they try to make a more believable gossip? :)

  12. mkyarwood says:

    Yes, because people attach themselves to humanitarian concerns for appearances only. I realize that, as actresses, there is an element of that — but I seriously doubt she’s worried about Honey Baked Ham as part of a power couple.

  13. Mireille says:

    Oh those tabloids!!!! Gotta love them. Is Angelina hating on Charlize THIS WEEK? Two weeks ago it was Jennifer Lawrence. A year ago it was Stacy Kiebler. Two years ago, it was Megan Fox. Before Megan, it was every other actress in Hollywood, just fill in a name here _____________________.

    Enquirer is only good for lining the bottom of any self-respecting cat’s litter box.

  14. Lori says:

    If there is any sh!t between them then I’d chaulk it up to Chelsea Handler more than anything else. Ian forgive Charlize Sean Penn but not Chelsea Handler. That one truly lowers my opinion of her!

  15. Soulsister says:

    I hate that these tabloids always have to pit Angie against other female celebrities. Angie has never made disparaging remarks about any other females in the entertainment industry and she does so much important work in trying to foster female empowerment (e.g the schools that she contributed to building in Afghanistan).

    I would think that Angelina would be elated that as many people as possible are working for the UN to try and effect positive change in the world.

  16. Andrea1 says:

    Just going to say that yesterday was terrible watching posters going after each other. I think So many people have So much time on their hands to be responding to each other over and over again. Women are their own worst enemies I swear. Yes AJ is thin we have heard that for years that’s just how she is she didn’t create herself that way! even she says she doesn’t like that she can’t gain weight easily. She is not forgetting to eat or too busy to eat like some posters always claim. Also if you don’t like a celeb why even bother to leave tons of comments on any news about the celeb and when you are So sensitive the internet is not the best place for you cause believe Me people are So mean I don’t like the kk, leann, brandi and I stay away from those threads even I don’t like Jennifer Aniston but its been a long time I commented on stories about her why because commenting on her stories starts up the craziness of the triangle.
    And finally bringing up the fact that you have cancer and dropping contact address on how to communicate and actually find out you have cancer is just a low blow in my opinion!! There are So many posters here from different continents who all have health challenges they are battling but using it to make one feel bad on the internet over a course of argument is BAD is my humble opinion. I wonder when we women will stop been bitter over something that doesn’t concern them and carry So much hate in their hates over the cause of 9years! Mehn that’s crazy. I love commenting on CB because I get to actually communicate with different kinds of people from different works of life and believe you I have learnt So many things from this site. Long live CB!!! At the age of 24 I wonder why I even spend So much time on internet gossip! Not to talk more of grown women with kids and probably grand kids. Wow women let’s be civil and stop the name calling on both sides. Thanks :) and oh the enquirer is at it again! I guess its a slow news day.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      So you stay away from threads but you are posting on one. Lol. It doesn’t make sense sorry.

      • Andrea1 says:

        Sorry maybe I didn’t say it well enough :) english isn’t my first language So its not really easy to communicate exactly what I mean at times. What am trying to say is that when I don’t like celebs I don’t post comments on stories about them. Am here posting because I like AJ that’s all dear.

    • V4real says:

      @Andrea listen to what you’re saying. You think it’s mean the way poster’s respond to each other yet you critcize a poster for putting some info about her personal life. That’s her business if she wants to do that. You said posters spend to much time going back and forth with their opinions about AJ yet you still manage to slip your opinion about her weight in this post, therefore you’re still talking about it.

      Lastly , this is for everyone who says it. Stop telling people if they don’t like someone to not post on their thread. This is a gossip site, not a fansite. It’s what you do here, you comment on celebs you like as well as the celebs you don’t like.

      • Andrea1 says:

        The only reason I talked about her weight is because of yesterday’s post. The comments from the post was mainly about her weight I would have thought that we would comment about her directing a big film and how there are very few women in that business but instead we talked about her weight more than the speech she gave. Yes I know its none of my business if that person decided to put information about being a cancer patient. We always share stories about struggles of cancer on this site and we do sympathise with each other and also comfort each other. Why I wasn’t particularly happy was because in the middle of a heated argument between two people then one party says you won because you just brought down a cancer patient, and that was why I stated in my opinion that was wrong. Well am sorry if that’s a criticism and it doesn’t mean am heartless or don’t have feelings.
        Your last paragraph… Yes you are right its a gossip site and not a fansite. I will just look the other way. :)

  17. Nev says:

    Queen Zahara AIN’T having it!!!!!!!!!! Hahahahahaha

  18. Hiddles forever says:

    What a stupid story! They don’t even know what to write anymore….

    Can we make up catfights too? Like Jennifer Lawrence hates Jennifer Aniston’s hair because it is so perfect and so on….

    The only thing I would like to add is that Brad Pitt is not an ex batterer as Sean Penn, therefore not really a copycat there…

  19. MrsBPitt says:

    They have all that in common, but Angelina still wins….she has all that and Brad, too!!!! Lucky duck!!!!

  20. paola says:

    Why only because people have lots in common HAVE to be freinds? They might have the same interests but that means nothing, friendship just like love has a lot to do with chemistry and when it’s not there you can’t make it happen.
    i think Hollywood is big enough for the both of them and I really don’t see them getting interested in the same roles in films.

  21. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    It looks like Angelina treats the make up artists very well – the chosen colours and application look perfect – read somewhere she’s a good tipper too.

  22. Jaderu says:

    Seriously I want some Actor VS. Actor stories. Enquirer…get your shi* together.

    “Brad Pitt Slams Sean Penn for stealing his hairdo! COPYCAT!!”
    “The claws are out for Shia LeBeouf and James Franco!! It’s a DOUCHE OFF!!”

  23. Toot says:

    Load of BS.

    Angelina and the kids look good.

  24. Bella Bella says:

    I would looooooooooove to see Charlize and Angelina in a movie together. A big summer spy blockbuster franchise. That would be the bombest dot comest thing that has ever happened.

  25. db says:

    To play devil’s advocate here (get it?), I can totally see this story as true-ish. They are probably the two most beautiful and talented actresses and also age peers. Never underestimate the level of insecurity actors can have, they competitors (btw, now that the Oscars are over, I think of them would have been better in Gravity. Just mho). There aren’t that many prestige acting roles for women to dig into and neither of them seems inclined to work in throwaways.

  26. Maya says:

    The media and some haters tries to push this notion that Angelina is a bitch, insecure and jealous woman who doesn’t have any female friends. Angelina is close friends with Mary Louise Parker, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Gwen Stefani, queen Rania of Jordan, Hilary Clinton, Marianne Pearl and many more. The difference is that Angelina not her true friends ever namedrops the JPs. That’s because they are real friendships and not showbusiness ones.

    As for Charlize – I got zero respect for a woman who is a mother of a black child and then also be BFF with a known racist.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I don’t think Chelsea Handler is Charlize’s bff. Charlize, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, and Chelsea Handler all have the manager or something. That’s why they all hang out.

    • Ellen says:

      I remember that Angelina said that she has no friends, so I don’t believe that she is friends with all those famous women! And I never heard anything about her being close friends with Marion Cotillard! Where did you heard that?

      • lisa2 says:

        She didn’t say she has no friends. goodness

        She just said in her Entertainment interview that she invited a FRIEND and her kids to set. It would be nice if people actually read the quote and not take the GOSSIP spin on it. She said there were not friends she talked to about her Humanitarian visits that she only really talked to Brad..

        Sad that comprehension is a dead trait. People believe sound bites and don’t read to find the meaning themselves.

        Angelina has never in an interview print or verbal said anything negative about anyone. Yet she is painted as so bitch that hates everyone. Seriously.

    • mayamae says:

      @Maya, do you have the scoop as to why some of Daniel Pearl’s friends turned on Mariane and even the film version of The Might Heart? I saw it on Nightline(?) before I saw the movie so I don’t remember the details, but I thought they were accusing Mariane of misrepresenting the facts. The group questioning Mariane seemed to be spearheaded by a female co-worker of Daniel’s. I thought it was a pretty brazen attack to take on a woman widowed when pregnant.

    • JessMa says:

      @ Maya, Gwen Steffani had Handler at her baby shower. Are you sure Angie and Gwen are still tight?

  27. GeeMoney says:

    Star Magazine is the worst. What a lame story.

  28. cat1 says:

    I have a feeling that Angelina is not as ‘saintly ‘ as many here believe. I think she has a good heart and wants to do good work but she’s also a good actress and goes after what she wants. She has no women friends (person above says she does – first time I’ve ever heard that and one would think there’d be at least one sighting of such ‘friendship.’ I also just reread those names and don’t think they are true gal friendships calling each other up and going out for drinks.). She’s done a great pr and marketing job for herself as more than one outlet has noted in their coverage of her.

    • Artemis says:

      She herself said she doesn’t have many friends but we know she is friends with Marianne Pearl and Gwen Stefani. She was spotted out a few times when she had dinner with friends. I can’t remember which actress it was but she thanked her friend (Jolie) in some speech. A lot of her friends seem to be low-profile and not for public consumption which is fine (like Eunice Huthart). We’ve seen her interact with a plethora of strong women such as Tilda Swinton, Queen Noor of Jordan, Jane Gooddall, Jennifer Lopez, Sibi Blazic so it’s not like she feels threatened by other women either. She’s also very busy and always traveling, that can be hard (even for rich people) to meet up with friend when you finally have some relax time.

      Everybody has a bitchy side to him/her and Jolie is extremely driven and calculating (you have to be in order to achieve what she did in these past 2 decades), even during her dark days. She has ambition and maybe that’s not viewed as ‘saintly’ but it takes her where she wants to go and she’s not hurting people in the process and that’s all that matters.

      • lucy2 says:

        I’m sure she does have friends that are a part of her everyday life, especially with other parents of kids her children know. In the past I could imagine she was more of a loner, but she’s grown up and her life has changed.

        But I think some are confusing friendly interaction/professional acquaintance with close, personal friendship. I’d imagine she’s friendly with someone like Hillary Clinton, and there’s mutual respect for their shared interests, but they aren’t hanging out on weekends or going for brunch together.

      • Artemis says:

        Yes, this is why I don’t include somebody on her payroll. I do make the distinction between women she’s seen pleasantly interacting with and actual friends friends. Most of them who nobody knows of.

    • Soulsister says:

      Can somebody explain where this ‘Angelina has no female friends’ meme comes from. She has plenty of female friends. Those mentioned above by Maya plus Jane Goodhall, Holly Goline, Rena Rowlands, the female cast of ITLOBH and Jillian Armenante to name a few more.

      • The Original G says:

        She’s seen with her friend Holly Goline all the time and Mindy Cohn is godmother of some of the children. Just because they’re not all lunching at the Ivy doesn’t mean a thing.

      • Artemis says:

        Because Goline is on her payroll. She was her personal assistant for a long time, I don’t know if that’s still the same but in the same vein, would we call her nannies and bodyguards friends too? They are often together too.

        Stefani and Eunice Huthart (real friends) are not with Jolie 24/7 because they have their own jobs to tend to. Is Goline a friend? All evidence points to yes, but that’s not why she’s with Jolie all the time.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        It comes from PART OF a comment she made in an interview a few years ago, when she commented that she doesn’t have many friends that she can talk to about the horrors and suffering she’s seen in her UN missions. The tabloids picked up and ran with the “I don’t have many friends” part without actually including the whole quote or sentence, therefore taking it completely out of context.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        It comes from PART OF a comment she made in an interview a few years ago for ITLOBAH, when she commented that she doesn’t have many friends that she can talk to about the horrors and suffering she’s seen in her UN missions. The tabloids picked up and ran with the “I don’t have many friends” part without actually including the whole quote or sentence, therefore taking it completely out of context.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Lucky Charm …

        It was actually several years ago now, before ITLOBAH, and it was a CNN interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta about Angie’s visits to refugee camps. He has done similar work and asked her how she handled the horrors she saw … did she have any friends she talked to about her experiences. And Angie said “I don’t have any friends … Brad is the only one I talk because he’s been there too.”

        Of course, all the Tabloids took the “I don’t have any friends … Brad is the only one I talk to” part of the sentence and ran with it. So did all manner of Jen-Hens.

        If you go to CNN’s video section online you might still be able to find it. It is an incredible interview.

    • I don’t get why it’s even a *thing* to say, or even ponder if she has any friends, let alone female friends.

      How many other actresses, or even actors do we bring up the fact that they’re never photographed with their friends? Do we see pictures of Halle Berry, Ben Affleck, Tom Cruise, Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix hanging out with their friends on the regular? If we don’t, does that mean they don’t have any friends? I honestly don’t get why having a ton of friends is a judge of a celebrity’s, or even a regular person’s character. I have only ONE friend–does that mean I’m a terrible person?

      • Cecilia says:

        There, there VC…It’s not the quantity of your friendships. It’s the quality. I remember reading an article that really got me thinking. The title of the article was:

        Two Hundred of Lisa Marie Presley’s Closest Friends Attended her Birthday Party.


        ha ha ha ha ha!! Come on.

      • Xantha says:

        Well yes Virgilia. For all we know you could be a serial killer. ;)

        Yeah just because a celeb appears to have many Hollywood friends doesn’t mean they are a good person. Look at all the women friends Chelsea Handler has. Having female friends hasn’t made her a great person. And I have to do a little side eye at Taylor Swift as well since it seems her own flaunting her famous female friends seems motivated in showing everyone how popular she is.

        I think Angelina is secure enough in herself to not need to pimp out whatever Hollywood friends she has. I think many of her actions are just a result in not wanting to get too deep into the High School politics Hollywood can have.

        Which is why I think this article is BS. I don’t think either women keep that close tabs of each other.

  29. Hubbahun says:

    Meh it’s just the Enquirer trying to make trouble where there is none, I reckon. And why would they be friends? Surely even in the fakiest fakery of Hollywood, there’s just not enough time to be besties with everyone. And has Angelina ever been seen with a best girlfriend? I get the impression she’s not one for female friends (not including ones she’s sleeping with that is). Some women are just men’s women and vice versa.

  30. Mindizzy! says:

    Oh Enquirer…reliable unintentional satire.

  31. Meme says:

    Angelina stated in an interview that she does’t have friends and if she needs someone to talk to she talks to Brad. All those women listed as her ‘friends’ are acquaintances at best.

    • Soulsister says:

      Well that’s funny because Holly Goline has been her friend for years, Marienne Pearl has called her a friend and their children still hang out with each other, Rena Rowland called Angie her friend, the female cast members of ITLOBH have said how close they are to Angie, Jane Goodhall has refered to Angie as ‘my good friend’. So I get the impression that she does have good friends and not just acquaintances.

    • Lea says:

      To add to that…Eunice Huthart is a very good friend since Tomb Raider. She is even Shiloh’s godmother. Do not forget Jillian Armenante, a very good friend since Girl Interupted, who is often seen at her & Brad’s premiers.

      She may not have a lot of close friends, but she has a number of close friends.

    • She said that in reference to the question asked of who does she talk to about her humanitarian work i.e. who does she talk to when she goes into refugee camp and hears stories about people’s families being butchered in front of them.

      And even if she didn’t have any friends, close friends—why does that matter? Sometimes we don’t connect with people. I’d rather have no friends, than a bunch of friends who would stab me in the back first chance they get.

      No she didn’t, she said that she doesn’t talk to friends about her humanitarian travels, she talks to Brad. The press interpreted that as saying that she had no friends.
      Her friendships are private and not for public consumption.
      Also she rarely corrects any negative/untrue press information, so she is not going to suddenly be seen lunching with a female friend.
      Angie’s private life is private.As she says only 10 per cent of what her life is, is actually known.

      In that interview she was asked does she discuss what she sees / hears on her UN missions she said no she only confides in Brad UN related topics.Both Brad in Esquire and Angie in Marie Claire have stated they only have a few close friends.I DK who their close friends are.I didn’t know she even knew George Lucas until last year.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Meme, who wrote: “Angelina stated in an interview that she does’t have friends and if she needs someone to talk to she talks to Brad. All those women listed as her ‘friends’ are acquaintances at best. ”

      It was a CNN interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta about Angie’s visits to refugee camps. He has done similar work and asked her how she handled the horrors she saw … did she have any friends she talked to about her experiences. And Angie said “I don’t have any friends … Brad is the only one I talk because he’s been there too.”

      Like you just did … people took parts of her comment out of context and ran with it.

      • mayamae says:

        Emma, I don’t see the difference between what you quoted and what Meme said. Do you mean “I don’t have any friends……. Brad is the only one…..”, is a cut off thought she was having? Meaning she was starting to say I don’t have any friends that I talk about it with, just Brad?

        ETA I see that’s what gennline is saying above, so I think I answered my own question.

    So I guess when Angelina stops acting and focuses on directing they will have her feuding with Kathryn Bigelow.GMAB
    Angelina turned down Gravity the second time to direct his first film.Personally I hope Unbroken is successful and both she and Brad focus on directing and producing as their kids become older.
    BTW Brad was at the screening of a doc he produced called”Big Oil….” last night.

  33. pnichols says:

    This has nothing to do with anything- but that first picture of Angelina- WOW. SHE is stunning. I cant even imagine what she must look like in person.

    • Amanduh says:

      Right?! Her gorgeousness alone would leave me at a loss for words. You’d want to keep staring but don’t want to look like a creep, but damn! you’d want to keep staring…lol

    • doofus says:

      not being obnoxious here, but I think that you would be “stunned”…you used an apt word to describe her.

      I’ve always thought that Candice Bergen is gorgeous, and I actually was lucky enough to meet her once and I was…yes…stunned at how much MORE gorgeous she was in person.

      so, I’d bet that Jolie would give you the same kind of reaction.

    Off topic: I wanna steal Maddox’s bag!

  35. lunchcoma says:

    Or, more realistically, they barely know each other and are indifferent to each other’s existence. There are plenty of actresses in Hollywood. Not all of them necessarily have opinions about each other.

  36. Kelly says:

    The story sounds like BS. But they should be in a movie together, that would be great!!

  37. Jordan says:

    Could two true humanitarians really hate each other over something so childish and petty? I would hope not.

  38. serena says:

    Because Charlize hangs out with Sean Penn, Chelsea Handler and the likes of them … as much as I like Charlize, some of the people she hangs with are no good.

    Also I don’t think any of them actually gives a crap about all of this. Don’t make me laugh.

  39. Nymeria says:

    Why aren’t they friends? Because they’re both massive egomaniacs who have to be the only one being doted upon. At heart, they’re both really insecure.

  40. Kim1 says:

    Angie and William Hague just arrived in Sarajevo.As usual she is focusing on important issues and she took Maddox and Zahara with her.I DK if they stayed in London or also went to Sarajevo.

  41. Steph says:

    Angelina is just so breathtakingly beautiful. Perfection.

  42. jen d. says:

    Years ago (like, late 90s), right when Charlize and Angelina were first becoming famous, some teen magazine (it might have been YM) sent a teen reporter to the Oscars. She had won a contest, and she was supposed to interview celebrities. A guy friend of hers wanted her to send a love letter to Angelina from him. She had no idea who AJ was, and when she got there, she handed the letter to some beautiful, popular new actress. Later on she realized she had sent the letter to Charlize Theron by accident. She was panicking, and saw AJ later to interview her. She mentioned the letter, and AJ laughed and showed her that Charlize had given her the note when she realized who it was for. AJ was awesome and gave the girl a big hug. Kind of a cute story, and one of the first times I actually kind of liked her.

  43. Az says:

    So Sean Penn is Charlize’s Billy Bob Thornton? And I wouldn’t let anyone remotely associated with Chelsea Handler within 50 feet of me. Much less my family.

  44. Camille (The Original) says:

    What a ridiculous story. I don’t believe a word of it.

  45. Ennie says:

    Angelina in Lebanon. Listen to her sharing a story of five children refugees.
    Please do watch it.

  46. fried egg says:

    I don’t read the National Enquirer but this article sounds highly misogynistic – of course women have so little self esteem, no depth and are so emotional that they engage in stupid rivalry. If Angelina and Charlize do have a rivalry (which seems unlikely since both women seem to have a brain), I highly doubt its due to the reasons NE outlined in its lame article.

  47. lisa2 says:

    I was on a fan site looking at Oscar pictures and Angie’s skin has NO BLEMISHES..

    look at that picture it’s like her skin is painted on. I would actually like someone to ask her about her skin care routine instead of the OH TOO serious question the interviewers in the US ask. I remember an interviewer saying how her skin glowed and it looked wet/dewy ..
    just gorgeous.

  48. Anna Scott says:

    Charlize is a natural beauty. She has an amazing body, talent, and intelligence. Jolie is well, Jolie.

  49. Naddie says:

    I highly doubt about this. What I really want to see is a film with both of them.

  50. moon says:

    Has charlize been doing work on her face?

  51. Cotton Candy says:

    I’m just curious…how come tabloids never spin a story “actress X hates Angelina Jolie” but only to the contrary?

  52. wiseuup says:

    Charlize is from South Africa and is a very credible asset and advocate interested in furthering causes relating to Africa. This makes perfect sense to me. Also, it makes perfect sense that she adopted a child from there. I feel she has all the reason in the world to be an ambassador of peace from this area of the world that also has major health issues with HIV/AIDS (another of Theron’s causes). Personally, I believe that as an actress, she has more range and ability than Jolie. I know everyone thinks Jolie is great but at the time she was made an ambassador it was quite surprising. She was a heroin and sex addict who carried a vile of blood around her neck and who kissed her brother passionately on the lips at the Oscars. Charlize has NEVER done anything to diminish her credibility as a good will ambassador and surely deserves it. It may be a slow news day but once again, I can see Jolie being jealous of Theron. Jolie admits to not having female friends. Also, some of her ‘humanitarian’ causes have been called in to question. She supported every single war in which a sovereign nation was broken up and decimated, including the one in Iraq. Alternative news reports that In Turkey, Angelina (depicted as ‘Angel Jolie’) was the only one allowed in to visit orphans who were displaced from or lost their parents from the war in Syria. One then may surmise her ‘mission’ as public relations and as having created a false impression that actually made it worse for the orphans’ welfare. Did we see her protesting ? No. The back stories on her keep coming. Rivalry or no, I bet on Theron as the real deal.
