Angelina Jolie left Target early because that Target didn’t serve hot dogs

Angelina Jolie is spotted with her children, Vivienne and Knox, at the Malibu Country Mart

Angelina Jolie isn’t much of a cook. I suspect that her mind just isn’t organized that way, although I’m constantly annoyed by people who can’t settle down enough to simply follow a written recipe. It’s not that difficult! But for some people, it is difficult. Even though Angelina is a mom of six, I don’t think she’s very big on cooking meals for her kids. “Meals” probably involve cereal, or calling for pizzas, or getting takeout. Maybe she has a part-time chef these days or maybe not. In any case, Angelina is not one of those moms who is super-concerned about letting her kids eat fast food or whatever. Angelina will literally take her kids to Target to get some hot dogs, and upon seeing that Target is out of hot dogs, she’ll leave.

A Page Six spy at a Target store in Los Angeles says that on Saturday Angelina Jolie took her daughters Shiloh and Vivienne to the cafe inside — but the family was disheartened to find the location did not serve hot dogs.

“The kids were disappointed, so they all left,” said our man in aisle five. Added the shopping source at the megamarket’s Eagle Rock location: “One weird thing is that Angie was totally bundled up in a big sweater, and it was probably 85 or 90 degrees out.”

[From Page Six]

I’m including the link to the Target photos below – Angelina actually wore a simple black dress and a cardigan. Granted, I don’t understand how people can do that when it’s above 75 degrees, but then again, I’m always running hot. I’m hot in the middle of winter for the most part. But everybody’s different – I’ve noticed that very thin women are usually cold, even in hot weather. As for the hot dog thing… I’ve never had a Target hot dog, so I can’t speak to whether one should go to Target specifically for the hot dogs. You know who does serve hot dogs all the time? Dairy Queen. I wonder if that was their next stop.

    Sometimes it’s not the following a recipe is difficult but that some people just don’t like to cook (I’m in that group). I do it when I have to, mostly because it’s more economical, but avoid it as much as possible as I just don’t enjoy cooking AND I don’t have a dishwasher. Plus I’m lucky to live near stores with expansive fresh prepared food options.

    As for hot dogs, Costco are the best; 1.50 for a foot long and a soda, best deal around.

  2. minx says:

    Uh, and…..?
    Also, Page Six is in the Murdoch rag Post and they hate Angelina.

  3. Clare says:

    I am always cold (and not very thin). I literally have a north face fleece in my handbag right now – and it is around 20C here. It’s because I have an arthropathy and low vitamin D levels. I get cold. My joints hurt. It has nothing to do with my weight. Its a little sad that thin women catch this kind of ‘she is cold because she is thin flack’. Some years ago – when I WAS what some may describe as ‘very thin’ I used to get the ‘you’re tired because you don’t eat enough’ shit ALL the time. No, I’m tired because I have an auto immune ‘disorder’. There are so many reasons why people have differing physiologies, and ones weight/body fat is just one of the.

    Also totally support leaving a store in pursuit of hot dogs.

    • swak says:

      My daughter has Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and she is always cold – no matter what time of the year it is. Where as I am the complete opposite and am like Kaiser – constantly hot and sweat at the drop of a hat.

    • Erinn says:

      I have fibromyalgia and trouble regulating temperature. My husband calls me cold-blooded in an affectionate sort of way – jokes that he needs to buy me one of those reptile lamps and a cooling pad like we got for the dog.

      Personally, I like being on the cold end of things – my ‘normal’ temp is always 97.something rather than 98.6. But I hate being overheated. The last couple of nights I’ve been SO overheated – and it takes me a while to adjust and get myself back to a comfortable temp. I’d rather have to add layers than remove them any day. I get grumpy when I’m overheated.

      It was only around 16C last night… but I assume the humidity might have been throwing things out of whack – because the last two nights I’ve felt like I’m melting. Last week my husband got up extra early with the dog and stayed up – and I woke up almost shivering. But I’m someone who can’t sleep without a blanket so I can’t just ditch the covers completely. And my skin/muscles have been extra sensitive for the last week or so … so I’m even grumpier about the heat because on top of that, I can’t sleep on either side because it aggravates my neck/back/arm. And if I sleep on my back like I prefer it felt like the pillow was sandpaper against the back of my head. So I’m likely in the midst of a bit of a symptom flare up, but still.

      Nova Scotia spring / fall are my jam. Love those kinds of temperatures because they’re not on either extreme end of things.

    • thaisajs says:

      Agree completely. I’m not what you’d call thin and I still take a sweater for Target or the movie theater because they can get cold in the summer with all the excessive A/C. And really, if you’re craving a hotdog and Target is out, why wouldn’t you leave?

    • justcrimmles says:

      I’m a lifer fat kid, and unless I’m moving, I am cold. Both of my parents (and now my sister) are extremely hot natured, and will all probably be buried with air conditioners. Meanwhile, I look forward to my own cremation 😝

      Who else hates having cold air blowing anywhere in their direction? Ugh. I’d always have to point the vent in my dad’s truck away from me, and he’d always move it right back, and tell me to point it up. I don’t care if it’s pointing up or down, dad, it’s still blowing on me. And the boob pain. One little cool breeze on Betty and Wilma, and I’m ready to rip off my nipples. Anyone else experience that? Or know what it’s called and how to stop it? Pinching and rubbing one’s own nips, especially in public, isn’t exactly socially acceptable, even if the only reason it’s being done is for pain relief. My boobs make me cry sometimes. The jerks.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I keep a sweater on hand because the hotter it is outside, the more intense the air conditioning will be!

      Also…there are no Dairy Queens in LA. You’d have to go to Burbank or Northridge. (Yes, I’ve investigated, I was nostalgic for a Blizzard one day. Not nostalgic enough to take a drive to Burbank, though).

    • Veronica says:

      It’s not really flak. People with smaller builds do usually experience chill faster because their surface area to to volume is larger and results in more heat loss. Women in particular experience it more because our core body temperature is higher than men’s, but our extemities are a few degrees cooler. (Also because average building temperature settings are calibrated to male body temperatures – you’re literally cold because nobody bothered to redo the math since the 50s.)

      Feeling SUPER COLD or SUPER HOT was my first real suspicion (along with fatigue and weight gain) that I had a thyroid issue, and yep I did. I’ve noticed I’m still a little more sensitive than I used to be even on meds.

  4. Yeahright says:

    I’m amazed she lets her kids eat hotdogs (yes, I know her kids have carte blanche and have been photographed with all sorts of junk) If I had children, and access to private chefs, I wouldn’t let them eat processed junk like mystery meat.
    I’m just a regular person and I attempt to only feed my niece healthy food when we’re together.
    I think celebs going from Acon in car to aircon to store makes them cold all the time.
    I like her sweater. Prob cost more than my life!

    • Lindsey says:

      But pretty much everyone else has air conditioning in their car in home. In America it is pretty standard.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      My kids love hotdogs. *shrugs* So do I.

      • fubar says:

        I love them also but youtube how they are made. You are basically feeding your kids garbage. Part of being a parent is feeding your kids healthy food and teaching them to live a healthy life style. When I was poor, I had no choice but to buy what I could afford. I cringe now at some of the stuff I feed my kids. AJ has no excuse. She can afford to feed her kids delicious healthy meals. She can afford to pay someone to shop, cook and feed her children. y That is laziness.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Thank you so much for explaining to me how to parent properly. Somehow I managed not to kill my almost adult children with the occasional hot dog. Never mind the veggie heavy/lean meat homecooked diets they’ve eaten throughout their whole lives.

        The condescension is strong in this one.

      • Moon Beam says:

        That is a Sanctimommy Says What level comment. MMMMM hot dogs.

      • Merritt says:

        @fubar

        Having a hot dog every once in a while is not a big deal. Maybe lay off the mommy wars stuff.

      • Erinn says:

        fubar – keep in mind the things you see in food documentaries and youtube videos aren’t always true, either. More often than not – someone is looking to turn a profit, and many are far from unbiased.

        “According to the FDA, hot dogs can be made of pork, chicken, beef, turkey or a combo thereof, all of which must be explicitly listed on the label. As for the “pink slime” or “pink goop” we’ve seen photos of, only mechanically separated chicken, turkey or pork (meaning meat extracted from the bone by a machine) are permitted; the FDA no longer allows mechanically separated beef. Additionally, any byproducts like heart, kidney, or liver must be named, along with the animals they came from, in the ingredients.”

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I have an urge to go to the butcher, grab some GOOD dogs (as Ina Garten would say) and grill them tonight for dinner. After my still alive, very healthy teenagers get home from their active jobs.

      • Shelly says:

        heh paranormalgirl, this judgie chick makes me want to get hotdogs for dinner tonight too.
        I always love your posts btw

    • Hunter says:

      Meh, I let my kids have hot dogs now and again, and I don’t think I’m a bad mother for it. Sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking, or you’re too busy. My kids turned out just fine. I’ll give Angie a pass on this.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      One of my friends has always been an accomplished home chef. Her son is now 7 years old, and he tells her he HATES her homemade pizza. He wants Dominos. It’s really upset her. She wants him to eat quality food, she has always served him quality food, but at school/friends homes he’s been introduced to processed food and he now prefers it.

      Parenting is hard (not that I would know, of course).

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        We went through this. We either use ready-made crust or add veggies to a good frozen pizza and everyone’s happy.

      • Enny says:

        We get the Hebrew National hotdogs. (We try to keep kosher as much as possible, but we’re not super strict.) they are all beef and, more importantly, meat – not random parts of the cow no one has any business eating. Is processed meat the absolute best nutrition? Probably not – but my daughter is very picky and sometimes that’s the only protein I can get into her. I don’t give it a second thought, and I buy them fairly often. Parents have enough to be worried about, what with terrorism, disease, bullies, a rise in global antisemitism and the re-normalization of Nazi ideology against Jews and all “others” – feeding them hot dogs, a habit they will likely outgrow as adults, should not be one of them.

      • Steph says:

        Yup, when they get to school all bets are off. My daughter begged me for lunchables and uncrustables after seeing other kids eating them. I let her have them every once in a while. And I’ve definitely learned that saying yes when she asks for the stuff means less gorging herself later on. It’s been a tough road, but I think we finally found a healthy balance.

      • Ankhel says:

        My family did that too. The pizza was rather soggy, because mum always wanted a lot of healthy veg. Compromise is probably a good idea!

  5. Maria F. says:

    re the temperature – a lot of US stores have the AC on at full blast, so I am always happy about a sweater. So if you just go from ACto the care (with AC) you might be ok with a sweater.

  6. tanesha86 says:

    Meh, this kinda seems like a non-story to me. I don’t think this is really news worthy

  7. Beth says:

    Those poor kids! Nothing more heartbreaking than hot dogs not being served. 😢 I usually buy a pack and put them in the microwave myself. She can’t possibly not know how to do something as simple as making a hot dog

  8. Laika says:

    I remember back when Maddox was just a wee one (little fauxhawk! Silver wrist/ankle bracelet with bells!) and her style was so simple, and so beautiful. Jeans, boots, sunglasses, big earrings, and a nice top with a leather jacket. Simple, and stunning, b/c she really doesn’t need anything to dress up that bone structure.

    I so wish she’s go back to that style era! The gothy soccer mom look just isn’t doing it for me.

  9. wheneight says:

    I understand the summer sweater thing. When every store has AC on full blast & the AC in your car is on full blast, you’re only wearing the sweater in the heat for like 30 steps in the parking lot. That’s why once spring is over, I know I have to bust out my sweaters again for summer AC.

  10. Tan says:

    Gah, cooking for 7 people is difficult no matter how enthusiastic cook you are

    And growing children eat so much food

    She probably has a chef at home

    Nothing like occasional hot dog indulgence. Its such a non news. Still good to hear about it

    So relatable

    I used to hate cooking, still do. But cook almost regularly because I am not allowed to eat a lot of stuff anymore

    For one person, a simple meal doesn’t take much

    But its a difficult thing to follow when you have kids I guess

    • B n A fn says:

      They say Pax is a good cook, I’m sure he has been teaching his mother about how to cook a hot dog, lol. Once I saw a picture and Pax at a restaurant learning how to make pizza. I bet Ms Zz knows how to cook, she runs the 🏡.

    • swak says:

      For me, cooking for one (myself) is a lot harder than cooking for all my grandchildren (10 of them). Some people cook, some people don’t.

      • Tan says:

        @Swak:

        Its not only you
        The whole process ia just too tedious ans long if you are doing it only for yourself

        And somehow it is much enjoyable if you are doing it for someone else.

        @ Beth and detritus:

        I used to live in hostel far away from home and I developed my non cool bad cook reputation then sort of intentionally. All the guys used to flock to the girls who could cook well and somehow she would end of cooking everyday for 5/6 people and no contribution of groceries at all.
        I cultivated the bad cook image to have my peace and also being told multiple times dude what kind of a girl cannot cook well stuck a stubborn nerve

        It continued much later. Only in my late 20s I was forced to cook regularly because of dietary restrictions

      • detritus says:

        Ahaha, Tan, I love that. A non-cook out of self preservation. I developed my talents because I hate nasty food. It worked out because feeding 8 is more economical than feeding one, so we got decent cheap food for us in res. I’d take $5 from everyone and we’d have a sweet sit down dinner with 8 people. It was awesome and I didn’t have to do dishes so win win.

  11. ArchieGoodwin says:

    I hate to cook. Love to bake. I don’t even have to eat it, but I love the process.
    I just loathe cooking, though I do it. It’s so hard to decide what to make. Salad and BBQ chicken, we eat that a lot.

  12. yyu says:

    Do these kids eat anything other than junk food, and fried insects when they are in Nam or Cambodia?

    Jesus woman. Cook something or hire a chef.

  13. Merritt says:

    None of the Dairy Queen locations near me serve anything but the ice cream. But one of the great things about living in Chicagoland, is that there are a ton of hot dog places and if you aren’t near one of the smaller businesses, there is probably a Portillo’s.

    • Esmom says:

      I’m in Chicago, too, and yes you can’t go too far without running into a hot dog place.

      My son was in surgery and there was a Portillo’s across the street from the hospital. I couldn’t believe how many people waiting were pumped up for the Portillo’s. People who clearly flew in for their loved one’s surgery because they had their suitcases and the first words out of their mouths were “let’s get some Portillo’s.” It was kind of funny in a surreal way.

    • WTW says:

      Former Chicagoan, now Angeleno. Dairy Queen is practically nonexistent in L.A., so yeah, Angie and clan almost certainly didn’t head there. In L.A., lots of street vendors sell hot dogs with a Mexican or Central American twist. They’re delicious. The main business in L.A. that sells dogs is Pink’s, but there’s always a long line. I have never been to Wienerschnitzel, but it is based in the L.A. area and there are several locations.

  14. Maya says:

    She looks gorgeous with the extra weight gain and the children looking like normal children – never seen them misbehave in public with so many cameras in their faces so well done Angelina and Brad.

    Screening for First They Killed My Father is sold out and it will soon premier at TIFF. So existed to see it on Netflix and also very happy that the Cambodian people are really standing behind this movie and supporting it around the world.

    I like her directing but so miss Angelina on the screen – Maleficent 2 and Shoot like a girl are confirmed so hopefully one of the will start shootings soon.

  15. The Original G says:

    Just a massive eye-roll at the Angelina can’t cook ANYTHING EVER commentaires, AGAIN.

  16. magnoliarose says:

    I love to cook and shop for food and cookbooks. It is the kind of thing you either like to do it or you don’t. I can’t fault her for not liking to do it.
    Our junk food of choice is french fries. Back in my cheese eating days I liked to eat fries with feta, oregano, olive oil and garlic. Cajun fries. Plain ole fries. Europeans can keep those mayo fries.

    • Lady D says:

      I was looking at a large stack of cookbooks for sale the other day, wondering when they would go the way of the dinosaur. I used to buy them, but now I have a virtual recipe box on All Recipes and Delish. I donated my cookbooks, except for the antique ones, and just stick with the net now.

      • magnoliarose says:

        That is a great idea. After a time you sort of know what you like in a book and what you don’t. A good insomnia project. I think they are a thing of the past for the most part. The internet has been a gift for trees. :)
        I like the collectible ones too and I have some from family. I have on old one from Louisiana that I want to save to pass down that my Mamere gave me. I would need to translate some of it.

      • Felicia says:

        I have a collection of cookbooks. Mostly because I’ve spent a lot of time in places where the internet doesn’t work well at all. I went on an all out binge of hunting down the “how to make everything from scratch” kind after my first Xmas in a 3rd world country. Wanted to make pumpkin pie. Opened the ONE cookbook I had brought along and read “take one tin of pumkin pie filling…” and thought “where in the eff am I going to find THAT here?” Obviously…nowhere. lol

      • bluhare says:

        Yeah, but there’s nothing like a well loved cookbook with food stains all over the best recipes.

      • Lady D says:

        I have one of those books, it was my grandma’s. I can find recipes by the color of the stain as I flip through. I won’t part with that book. I found a 1940′s cookbook at a book sale recently. There is an orange and chocolate cake recipe that is phenomenal, way too good. I can’t wait to try the other cake recipes.

      • bluhare says:

        And I’m taking my mother’s, Lady D! It’s a British one and has some of the best cake recipes ever in it. My Victoria sponge, that I get tons of compliments on, comes from that book!

        The only downside is translating the British measures to American, now I live over here.

  17. Jessica says:

    Pap stroll; who goes to Target for hot dogs and not a street vendor or hot dog restaurant. She also could have just brought a package of hot dogs and some buns from Target and put them in the microwave for 25 seconds.

    • snowflake says:

      Maybe they were running around and weren’t going back to their house anytime soon? And the kids were hungry and decided to pop in there? Since when does Angie have to call the paps? Lol

      • Jessica says:

        This is a clear pap stroll and Angelina has been caught red-handed doing them in the past. She’s been out with Viv and Shiloh almost everyday for the past 2 weeks because her movie is coming out soon. Seriously I don’t know anyone who uses her kids as apart of publicity for a movie as much as Angelina Jolie does.

    • minx says:

      Haven’t you ever been out with kids and they want something right then? Maybe there was no street vendor and they didn’t want buy hot dogs and microwave them.

      • Jessica says:

        Sure have; I’ve been out with about 5/6 kids at a time so I know how they can be. But if they seriously wanted hot dogs she could have picked up her smartphone and searched for a place that sells them; not pop into a Target that she’s been frequently papped at in hopes they have hot dogs. This is an obvious pap stroll and if any other A-list movie star mom (Jennifer, Sandra, Charlize, Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Halle Berry, etc.) was seen this frequently with their kids within 2 weeks of their movie coming out everyone would say she was calling the paps but people are making excuses for Angelina.

      • minx says:

        I wouldn’t waste my time “checking my smartphone” for a place that sells hot dogs when there’s a Target there that, you know, sells hot dogs. Maybe the kids like Target hot dogs. It’s really stretching it to criticize this outing.

      • Jessica says:

        If you really think Angelina is 100% immune to pap strolls then fine you’ll never see it that way. But if this was Jennifer Garner, Sandra Bullock or Charlize Theron with a movie coming out and we saw pics of her and her kids every single day for 2 weeks then people would be calling it what it is.

    • Paige says:

      @Jessica
      She’s been photographed with the kids for months. Not just recently. Maybe they didn’t want a pack of microwaved hotdogs. Their choice.

      You go to extremes with you dislike for this woman. I can’t read a Jolie story without you coming on here to write something negative about her. You came at someone the other day because they didn’t choose to criticize Angelina.

      • Jessica says:

        LOL, there is nothing extreme about pointing out how this is a complete pap stroll. Seriously, there’s been one everyday. I used to like Angelina’s image but I was always aware of how much her children was a part of that. Now I see her kids are her whole image and I’m not falling for it anymore.

        When her fans start criticizing her for things they criticize other actresses for then I’ll take them seriously.

      • Paige says:

        It is extreme when you consistently ask posters why they won’t criticize her because you do. Maybe they don’t want to nitpick like you.

        She was with her father. You thought that was wrong. She took her kids out. You think that’s wrong. She chose to buy a cooked hotdog instead cooking one. That’s also wrong. It’s Nitpicking. Feel free to call her out when it’s something important. Not something silly as taking her kids to Target to buy a hotdog.

      • Jessica says:

        @Paige

        Yes I think it’s wrong she has her Asian and Ethiopian children around a racist Trump supporter. Again, if it was any other actress they would be crucified but Angelina gets a pass. I definitely think this is an important discussion to have.

        I don’t mind her taking her kids out for hot dogs cooked or uncooked but this is an obvious pap stroll.

    • Bette says:

      Wow, really? Are you serious? I was only half kidding myself when i thought she might be getting attacked for slipping into Target.

      Why does one of the most famous women in the world need to call paparazzi again?

    • BorderMollie says:

      Um, because she wanted to leave her house for a bit, get some fresh air etc? She shouldn’t have to say inside 24/7 because pics of her bother a few overly sensitive folks out there, geez.

    • Felicia says:

      I’m just having a hard time believing that someone who drops 70 million euros on a French Chateau + renovations, just bought a $25 million dollar house, has (reportedly) 6 nannies and travels in a private jet and carries around a 5 or 10k handbag has ever set foot in a Target (or a Walmart or a Costco, Dollar Store or anything even remotely similar) for the purpose of actually shopping for anything. I think if that was the sort of thing she’d actually done in the past, we’d have seen social media pictures of “OMG, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shop at Target!”.

      • Paige says:

        It’s not unbelievable. Celebrities do shop at Target and Costco. Twitter had photos of them shopping at Rite Aid. I remember pics of Brad grocery shopping with the kids or Angelina grocery shopping with the kids over the years. I think the kids like Target. Gossip sites have photos of them there without Angelina.

      • Felicia says:

        Grocery shopping at Whole Foods. Not exactly Costco. The pix you linked are post split. But where are the Instagram, Twitter pix of them being Target shoppers when the PR war post-split wasn’t happening?

        I know that comment might rile a few commentors up. But… in this situation where both are very public figures, regardless of intentions, the minute that one side decides to enter into the PR game for post-split supremacy, the other party is forced to play or to find themselves cast as the villain. It doesn’t really matter which of the two you think cast the first stone, the reality in their positions is that the moment a stone is cast, they are forced into the game. No choice.

      • The Original G says:

        Don’t celebs of this stature avoid Target to protect their children from paps and tabloid speculation?

      • Paige says:

        I’m not going to get into a debate. I don’t have time to post all the tweets I’ve read about them being spotted in a store or a grocery store pre split but it has happened. Maybe not Target but I’ve photos random people have taken with their phones. It doesn’t have to be Target. They’ve shopped at Gelsons, a local grocery store. Rite Aid.

        So you’re saying Angelina can’t shop at Target unless it’s to win a PR war. Yet there is photo evidence of her shopping at places like Barnes & Nobles, FAO Schwarz, and other big stores with a kid or two over the years.

        People don’t care if she takes her kids to Target. It isn’t going to sell a movie ticket. I won’t say, I guess I’ll watch FTKMF now that I’ve seen her shopping with her kids. Are they not suppose to leave the house? Is she suppose to tell her kids they can’t shop at a store they may like because people on the internet will think its a PR game. I think not.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Total pap stroll, same with the one in Colorado over the winter break. Interestingly, when Brad was minding the children in Cambodia while she worked on her film, there were no shots.

    • magnoliarose says:

      It is a pap stroll. I am not one to criticize a pap or two. It is part of the job but her fans need to stop thinking she is above it.
      Plenty of very wealthy people shop in regular places. I don’t know if this is a try for regular Mom but it is true they have been seen at regular places for years.

      • Paige says:

        It’s not that I think she’s above pap strolls. She uses them. She’s a celebrity. I just think it’s ridiculous people are assuming she is only going to regular stores now for PR. She went to regularplaces when she was with Brad and before Brad. I remember a pic of her shopping with Maddox when it was just them two. I mean there are tons of photos of her shopping at regular stores like Rite Aid, Toys R Us, Barnes & Nobles, and California grocery stores. She’s not above using paps but why shouldn’t she go to Target if she wants to and the kids.

        ITA, NeonTetra, some are just out and out rude and offensive whenever Maya comments. Notice that rarely happens if someone is forever posting negative comments about Angie, or anyone else.

      • cara says:

        Sorry, my post regarding the bashing of Maya showed up in the wrong place.

    • NeonTetra says:

      Wow. Jessica, ever thought that maybe her kids LIKE the ones at Target? And Angelina is NOT known for pap strolls. She has never been one for pap strolls. And she is Angelina Jolie. She doesn’t need to do that as she is not c list like Jennifer Garner, she is The Angelina Jolie. As for being out with her kids, wow, it is summer, so they kids are probably home more hence she is seen more with them. Not everything has to be some nefarious conspiracy you know.

      • cara says:

        There’s a picture taken on a cellphone of Angie and Shiloh standing at the counter of the cafe in Target, obviously inquiring about hot dogs.

        Of course the paps are staked out near her home, and follow her and the children’s every move. Ridiculous.

    I go to Ikea for the meatballs.One day I arrived too late and they had stop serving lunch,so I left.I rarely shop in there.

  19. tcbc says:

    Lots of pap shots of Angie and the kids lately. Good publicity for the new film.

  20. DiamondGirl says:

    I grew up learning to cook with my mother and grandmother. My two sons grew up learning to cook from me and my mother. I was determined that they would know how to feed themselves as adults and they both love it.

    My husband grew up with the custom that boys don’t cook or do anything for themselves, and I was not going to raise useless spoiled men like that.

    When my younger son lived across the country, he would text me pics of things he was cooking. They both have created their own versions of recipes I taught them.

    It’s just a good life skill to have.

    Well, she sure made the whole Cambodia mess go away didn’t she… smh

    • The Original G says:

      Did she? I think she made a lot of interest in this project go away. Time will tell.

      • Doc says:

        Maybe that too, but I feel like there’s much less focus on the whole alleged child abuse as well as re-traumatizing people that went through actual horrors for the sake of her movie. That deserved a lot more backlash and proving that the methods used to get emotions were inhumane.
        It could and should open the door to an array of unethical practices that the movie industry uses for the sake of making a film.

      • The Original G says:

        I think she was misguided in her approach to casting and filming as well. I think, though, that she doesn’t have a really big audience as a director and it’s a netflix film and she’s not as influential as some people here think she is.

        I think a little more “industry” imput from the get-go might have steered this in a better direction from the get-go.

      • Artemis says:

        @Original G: You think? By The Sea made 3 mil and that’s with the JP’s combined star power and them using aggressive promotion. It was supposed to be a big deal and it was just embarrassing how hard the project failed on all fronts. It being an indie didn’t matter since much better films made profit (e.g. Carol released only 1 week apart made 4x its budget back). Difference was Carol was a really good movie and BTS wasn’t but don’t tell the stans that.

        Jolie should try documentary, I think the style would suit her better but I think she’s going to push through with her usual war films until people can’t be bother financing and supporting her. She only has 1 hit with directing, she’s lucky people still care giving her covers and exclusive interview requests. And I would support her better (I watched her films online) if she didn’t say all those negative things about filmmaking in the past like she was over it all to then turn 180° and occupy a coveted job when there are so many skilled passionate women out there who would kill for the opportunities she gets handed to her.

      • The Original G says:

        Her performance was excruciating. It was really a bad, bad film. It’s been a long time since she’s turned in a major performance. This is a netflix film, not a major motion picture event. I fear she’s got quite limited real prospects at the moment.

    Two words: CROCK POT ( or SLOW COOKER)!

  23. Adorable says:

    Well she did mention in her VF article,that she’s getting better at cooking,so there’s that!,whilst I can cook,I hate it,the whole process of waiting…etc is just not for me.

  24. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    Only reason I clicked on the link was to understand how one could leave Target “early”… sounded like there was some minimum period of attendance she violated.

  25. Mew says:

    You get cold when you don’t eat enough. She’s always extremely thin so no wonder she’s freezing.

  26. Olive says:

    I don’t understand why people make such a big deal about another person wearing long sleeves in the summer, or a cardigan. It’s 77 here today and I wore a hoodie, and without fail someone always has to comment “Aren’t you hot?!” or some other dumb line because they don’t understand why I’m wearing long sleeves, and want to make their own lack of understanding my problem.

    Just move along and mind your own business. I’ll dress for my own comfort and you can dress for yours!

  27. JA says:

    Hotdogs are not necessarily junk food! I only feed my kid blah, blah… how bout you let your kid try a hotdog and decide for themselves if they like it. Everything in moderation people. Always enjoyed my parent’s taking us to the ballpark for 25cent hotdog night! Great family moments. And yes my parent’s cared about me and still let me hotdogs, candy and chips!

    • Felicia says:

      Heh… story. My kids grew up in places where there weren’t any fast food restaurants . So going out for dinner was going to a real, sit down with waiters and napkins thing. I took my oldest to McDonald’s once (and only once) when she was about 6 or so while on vacation. She loved the little Sebastian the Crab toy in the Happy Meal. And declared that the rest was disgusting. Wouldn’t eat it. We ended up having to go to a proper restaurant.

      From that, I think a lot of what we tend to think of as “normal” is just conditioning.

      • magnoliarose says:

        This is true. Since I love to cook fresh from scratch food my kids don’t like things that have an old taste or bland. They eat salads and vegetables with no problems. Ethnic foods and spices aren’t a problem either.
        It is conditioning but there are outlier kids who won’t eat hardly anything no matter what the parents do. I also don’t think any parents should be shamed for treats or fast food every now and then. If parents feed good food and their children are healthy it is up to them to make choices that fit their lifestyle.

  28. Bliss 51 says:

    A while back I explored Madonna’s Instagram and she has a video of some of the kids dancing in a cavernous kitchen while staff are loading the dishwasher. I have serious envy.

  29. Sara says:

    I just dont understand if you are that rich, why wouldn’t you have a full time cook to make delicious healthy food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner??? That would be a pipe dream for me! I dont hate to cook I hate the time it takes to cook and clean up…

  30. Julaho says:

    It’s a thousand degrees here in Georgia but everywhere we go inside is insufferably freezing. I wish I kept a sweater with me!

  31. Wilder says:

    I used to love cooking… until I had kids. Then it just became such a chore. I know that sounds terrible, but when you have little ones around, you’re too busy to take the time to focus on cooking a really nice meal. And I had one super picky eater, which made meal times even more of a chore because I felt like I was always making the same thing. They’re 11 and 13 now, and I’m just starting to get my love of cooking back. But if I had Angelina’s money, I’d have had a chef when my kids were little, no question.

  32. SM says:

    Not to sound like judgmental mom towards another mom but I can’t imagine raising kids on takeoit and restaurant food without any homemade meals from fresh ingredients. When I’m away somewhere and have to eat i restaurants for days I come to miss home cooked meals too. I guess it is good she can afford a home chef

  33. .. says:

    i dont know why people keep commenting on her wearing a sweater or jacket. it is cold indoors during the summer in shopping centers. the ac is cranked way up. i always have a sweater in the summer…esp if we go to the movies. air conditioning affects people differently, and can actually trigger migraines etc. i am not one for a super cold house in the summer…and i freeze everytime i go to the grocery or mall etc during the hotter months….. so i take a sweater too.

  34. S says:

    She can buy 12 cases of tofu pups on Amazon for $80.75 with free shipping.
    Just sayin’.

  35. NeonTetra says:

    Oh please Lonera, you are so transparent. The ‘online alias’ was made up by her haters at Female First AFTER the Sony emails came out, and that is where it came from. They got her email account from the leaks and created the online alias. They were caught. It was nailed down to one of the FFers and was made up. None of what you say about her is true, and to be honest, you sound like a very bitter, jealous, insecure and unstable person to me.
