Angelina Jolie is being sued, and she took the kids to see ‘The Muppets’ in NYC

Here are some new photos of Angelina Jolie taking three of her kids to see The Muppets in New York City. I guess only Shiloh, Zahara and Pax wanted to see The Muppets? Maddox was all, “I’d rather see Arthur Christmas, y’all. I’ll sit this one out.” And Vivienne and Knox are too little for Muppet movies, I suppose. I don’t really have much to say about these photos – Angelina looks pretty, and it’s totally unnecessary for her to be wearing shades, considering it’s dark out. I love the body language of Zahara and Pax, though – Pax is wearing a shark mask, and he must not be able to see, so Zahara is all, “I’ll show you the way, my brother.”

Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie is getting sued in federal court. Croatian journalist James J. Braddock claims that Jolie “stole” the story for her film In the Land of Blood and Honey from an article (and book) he wrote about a woman who was subjected to rape in a POW camp.

Angelina Jolie is being sued for allegedly stealing the story behind her new movie, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is exclusively reporting.

In legal documents filed in federal court obtained by Radar, Croatian journalist and author James J. Braddock (aka Josip J. Knezevic) says an article he wrote and published in 2007 is the basis for the film, which was written and directed by Jolie.

The film is a fictionalized account of an unlikely love story between a Serbian soldier and a Muslim woman during the Bosnian War. Brad Pitt was often on location when Angie was working, taking photographs of her at work.

As an example of the similarities between the story he published and the storyline of the film, the lawsuit states:

“The Subject Work’s main female character is subject to continuous abuse and rape by soldiers and officers in the camp. In addition to being raped continuously by soldiers and officers, she is forced to become a servant at the camp headquarters, a duty assumed by very few of the captives. The Motion Picture’s main female character is also subject to continuous rape by soldiers and officers in the camp and subsequently becomes a servant at camp headquarters.”

Braddock has also named GK Films, the L.A.-based production company which financed and is releasing the film, and several other entities.

He’s demanding a jury trial asking the court to award him damages.

In the Land of Blood and Honey opens December 23.

This guy has a website too, and a really long essay about Angelina Jolie and how she just stole everything from him – go here to read his rather insane rant. God knows, I’m accused of playing favorites when it comes to Angelina (it’s true – she’s one of my favorites), but this guy doesn’t seem to have much of a case, by his own admission. He claims that Angelina took his articles and books and CHANGED them into a “banal love story… that would be impossible during the war…” Which means that she didn’t copy his story, she created her own story which is set partially in a POW camp. This guy doesn’t OWN the concept of POW camps. He also doesn’t help his case by claiming that Angelina is just like a Serbian aggressor in 1992. It seems like this guy is just pissed off at the world and hoping that Angelina will just shell out some hush money.

Angelina is in New York ahead of the premiere of In the Land of Blood and Honey, which will be happening this week. Will Brad be there? What will she wear? Will she field questions about this lawsuit?

UPDATE: Angelina covers the new issue of Newsweek too, via ET:

    The poor kids are being blinded by the flashes. This is terrible, no wonder she looks pissed off.

    Pax is wearing a new style of hoodie that zips up to look like a mask but the kid can still see where he’s going. They’re super popular here in NYC all of a sudden.

    • lisa says:

      The paps are too close.

      this is why they wear sunglasses. Brad said he has eye damage from the flashes. Which is why he wears glasses now (they are not shades as some want to say). I read an article once where the reporter said that when he stood up, there were thousands of flashes in his face in less than a few seconds. I’m sure the same for Angie. You can imagine what that does to the eyes.

      The kids don’t get that often. They are not out a lot at night. But the reality is their pictures are going to be taken. The paps don’t have to be that close.

      • tapioca says:

        Why then does AJ wear sunglasses to protect against the camera flashes and the kids don’t? They’re obviously equally bothered by the light and she obviously knew the paps were going to be there as she’s brought her own!

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Those hoodies have been popular for a while. Everyone has been wearing those full face skull hoodies for at least the last year or two. I guess they started to branch out a do sharks and such now.

  2. mln76 says:

    This guy is crazy he’s been making these rants on every Angelina post for months (I’m surprise he’s never posted here) Not going to call her a saint(although someone will accuse me of it sooner or later). The idiot’s argument is silly. No one owns the copyright to a news event. He wrote a book based on historical events. She wrote a script based on the same events. Neither one is the first or last to write on those events. Just like there isn’t just one book/movie on the Civil War, WWII or Vietnam. By his own admission there are major differences in their stories. I think he just wants publicity for his book.

    • Cheyenne says:

      mln: Nobody owns the copyright to a news event

      Excellent point. This clown better enjoy his 15 minutes because that’s all he’s going to get out of it.

      • Original Chloe says:

        Co-sign to that.

        I’m guessing the author counts on getting some money, as it’s so close to the Oscars (and he chose a poor way of getting it – I don’t see AJ paying anyone to keep them quiet).

        Like mln says, no one owns the right to WWII or Pearl Harbor.

    • magslivs says:

      Yeah, i mean as awful as it is, that story sounds pretty damn common in any war, in any country

    • Antanas says:

      Any person who ever wrote a book, a script, or even an article knows that every story has a basic skeleton or trunk and that the trunk could remain the same even if all branches are trimmed and the leaves are repainted. It is still the same tree, the same structure. Every idiot in the world can see that Lexus stole from Mercedes, shamelessly tweaking and using the company’s design and technology. Ms. Jolie did the same with Mr. Braddock’s story. She was “brave” and (of course) ignorant enough to change some details that looked unimportant to her, but provoked a full-scale reaction and revolt from different women organizations of Bosnia and that part of Europe. So, what she did was miss the truth by tweaking Braddock’s story. Women who survived the hell of Serbian concentration camps have no sensitivity for Ms. Jolie’s nebulous blunders. There is not a single Serbian criminal, mass murderer or mass rapist from that war who ever repented. There is no love story in which a lover murders his beloved after liberating her. It is not Shakespearian, it is exclusively Jolienian and, consequently, not coherent or sound. But Braddock’s unique story (the only one ever published with such a plot, which is soon due to be published in English), resembles the core of the script of Ms. Jolie’s movie too closely to accept it as a coincidence.

      • Original Chloe says:

        Hrm. I am assuming you have read both the book and the script, and can therefore claim that they have the same “skeleton”, right?

        Please outline this “skeleton”, so that we can have a frame of reference (I mean, the actual content of the novel and the movie, the stages of plot development etc. – not just the main theme) Because so far you’ve been dealing in generalities.

        I have a degree in literary theory, btw;) so I’m gonna fully appreciate you doing that.

        Side note: I’m not even going to go into how two works can have several structural similarities and yet be completely different, cause that’s not even the case here, however for a user-friendly version of structuralism – which is what you seem to have in mind when you use the word “skeleton” – go to Campbell’s “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”

      • mln76 says:

        The ‘skeleton’ in this case are real life events documented by hours of accounts, news footage, and testimony in tribunals. In other words PUBLIC DOMAIN. James-I mean Antanas 😉 sell that skeleton B.S. on another forum.

    • Freya says:

      I agree! That jerk wants publicity AND money.

      • Ina says:

        I don’t think he’s an idiot. I think he’s right. You have to spend longer than 2 months in Croatia and Bosnia to know what happened. I’m Croatian that grew up in North of Bosnia, and me and my family suffered in war greatly. My uncle was imprisoned in Serbian concentration camp and tortured for months. If this guy wanted money or publicity he would have waited for movie to make some money 1st. I am proud of my country and of men who sacrificed their lives for protecting it. I don’t think Jolie deserves to create some mushy love story based on what is called the worst genocide since the WW II. She has no clue what happened and how much did people suffer and therefore she should keep her fingers out of it!!!!!

  3. yael says:

    i’m guessing she might be wearing shades to be able to see through all the camera flashes. just look at the kids – they’re squinting and grimacing. she’s probably wearing them to be able to actually walk them into the theatre without crashing into something.

  4. islandgirl says:

    The guy is crazy. Looking for some quick cash and he is not going to get it

  5. lisa says:

    I think she just came from her taped interview with Christiane Amanpour which will air on Sunday and Monday.

    I saw her makeup person in the car. So it looks like they got the kids and headed to the theater

    This is just a silly lawsuit. But I’m sure the Angie none fans will be here in mass. So happy. but like all their celebrations this will end the same. Angie nor GK seem to even care. And he wants to be noticed and not ignored. She and Brad ignored the “tell all” books that didn’t tell shit. The truth wins out. So my money is on Ms. Jolie for the win. She is 7-0 now..

      Morning Seal Team. Your comment got me thinking, we need a signature drink for the AJ/JA posts ala the cracktini’s for the Cracken posts. I’m actually thinking something smooth and chocolatey for the popcorn. P.S. It’s only 10 a.m. here.

        I’ll drink to that.

        Ladies, may I introduce you to the Meharita. It’s light on the alcohol, heavy on the mehh, heroin and irony, has a little cabo sand thrown in, but with a light fizz that just makes it supeurb at any time of day. It is, coincidentally, a cure-all for all varients of mental health disorder. Also, killer for a cractini hangover.

        I arranged these rather delightful servitors for you .. this crew is comprised of people that gave up their afterlife to serve Angelina’s baby-stealing desires, flight-coordinators for Brad’s architecture-viewing extravagances, and of course, cabo visit planners. Please take your selection. And when I say take, our bar doesn’t see, report or diarise the things that happen here. There is a policy on that.

  7. truthSF says:

    Damn! Can these paps get those f@#king cameras out of these kids faces, can’t they see how much it’s bothering them.

    • Cheyenne says:

      Like they care? As long as they get their money shot.

      I agree with Seal Team. One of these days Z is going to bust a paparazzi upside the head with his own camera.

  8. 221jazz says:

    The other kids cover their eyes from the paps flash, but Empress Zahara does not…her look says it all “I got this bitches, flash away! your cameras don’t fazzze me peasants” Got to love The Empress Z.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I love the Empress too! And her coat is great – I wonder if she picked it herself. Such an incredible kid.

  9. NM9005 says:

    Really lame. I’m sure there are plenty of books, article and other resources where you can find stories that resemble Jolie’s film (that hasn’t even come out yet!) it is after all based on historical events! This seems like a grab for money and/or attention. Besides, it very difficult to come up with anything new that has never been done before but I have a feeling that the film IS going to be original and risky (definitely with Jolie her own experience with such delicate topics) so it’s really sad that somebody tries to piss on that.

    I’m aware that I wasn’t supportive about her directing and writing skills and was indecisive about the trailer but the story is something special so I’ll give her that. Maybe I’ll even make an effort and drag my ass to the cinema to see it but I doubt it. I rather wait for the dvd and the extras :).

    Co-sign with mln76 btw…

  10. samira677 says:

    A lot of celebrities do wear sunglasses at night probably because of the paps. I actually laugh when people say Kaiser is pro Angelina/Brad considering she says that all of the rumors are true or mostly true. It sounds like the lawsuit is a publicity stunt. As said it sounds like only the concept is the same and nothing else.

    • katyalia says:

      Do you actually ever bother to read one of Kaiser’s posts? Or are you going strictly by the ‘headlines’?

  11. Seal Team 6 says:

    She’s probably wearing shades because of teh cameras and the lights — look how the kids’ eyes are screwed up. That way, AJ can see well enough to lead her kids into the movie theater.

    Someday, probably quite soon, Z will be a black belt in Judo, and will be flinging the Paps left and right.

  12. ShanKat says:

    They all have nice hair!

    Suri is gonna have a field day with Shiloh’s outfit. But it doesn’t look like she rolled around in the dirt, so bonus.

    SUCH cute kids. My lordy.

  13. patti says:

    I don’t think I would subject my children to the paps like that.

    • Cheyenne says:

      They have a right to go out whenever they want to, paps or no paps. What do you expect them to do, keep the kids in the house 24/7/365?

    • Lady D says:

      I gotta agree with Cheyenne. Unless they are home-schooled, have dentists/doctors that make house calls, and never want to mix with any other people, no sports, dance, music, drama lessons, then you can keep the paps from taking pictures. I suppose you could mask them every time they went out like Micheal Jackson did to his kids. Instead of the children suffering, why not do something about the paps that make their life so miserable?

      • NM9005 says:

        True that Lady D. But everybody knows that for every not staged pic there are 10 staged ones so either they go all the way and try to pass a law about it or stop bullshitting in the press about the “invasion of privacy” the latter being honest into admitting that they often stage pictures so the line is up to them to draw.

        In the first case their would be a law that prevents those paps from instruding moments like that with either a more appropriate distance, asking for consent, no pictures at all OR blurring their faces (which doesn’t help in the moment itself but it’s something) but the second case? That would mean that no celeb can ever sell pictures anymore themselves (no, not even for charity) or stage photo-ops. Since it’s a given that a lot of celebs benefit from the parent image (Garner, Jolie, Stefani and lots more) that would be difficult. Sometimes there are pictures where it’s abundantly clear that the “paps” are given consent. It’s a bit too easy to blame the media. After all, most of them did want to be famous and when you bring a child or children in that world you better make an effort too instead of blaming the paps or media all the time.

        Specifically in Jolie’s case (since I was talking in general in the above paragraphs): People say that she was tipped. Ok, we know she’s in NY but how did they figure out she was going to the movies with her children? She could easily taken the backdoor since they often do that for celebs. It’s not an ideal situation but it’s making an effort yourself. We know JP can dissapear for months if they want too, they can be extremely stealth. As if the children don’t go out then?! How do they do THAT? Jolie can also stop talking about her children whenever asked so people know jack about their personalities and can’t make up scenarios in their heads or pretend they know the children just because she gives away lots of info. It would take the interest away a bit because they would be blank too us then. How would you feel if your parents pronounced to the world what your personal quirks are? And lastly, do you think that such a powerful celeb as Jolie who often has a hand in how the media portrays her (I mean in legit interviews), who is a goodwill ambassador etc… can’t push for a law that concerns her own children? Or other celebs for that matter? They come together in support for Polanski (not Jolie of course) but don’t mind the scrutiny their own children go through their entire lives?

        Also: demand and supply. These pictures sell, find a (huge) audience. As much as people find it horrible that the paps are blinding the kids with their flashes (it is), it won’t stop them from viewing the pictures, it won’t stop others from buying the magazines, it won’t stop them from inserting their thoughts about them based on their perceived personalities on them. If people stop asking about their children, celebs wouldn’t have to sell them. It’s because people want to know that they give it to you. If not, JP wouldn’t have been able to command 14 million because they woulnd’t get the money back…

        Newsweek picture: that face…the best.

      • Winny Winkle says:

        I like what Michael Jackson did, he never paraded his kids around but always protected them. And contrary to what everybody said, his kids turned out amazing!!!!!!!Angelina and Brad always parade their kids, they always let everybody know how much they give away and to whom etc. they are sooo publicity hungry!!

      • Original Chloe says:

        @ Winny Winkle

        Sorry to nitpick but didn’t Michael Jackson almost drop his own baby from a balcony while showing it to the paps gathered outside? (It was all over the internet).

      • Katherine says:

        NM9005 incredulously wrote: “She could easily taken the backdoor since they often do that for celebs.”

        LOL! Oh, yea. They should go in the “backdoor” of a building in downtown Manhattan? Have you ever been to NYC?

      • NM9005 says:


        Yes, but I’m not familiar with living in NY. I just visited NY for an hour and that’s it.

        I was just merely pointing out that celebs should make an effort too and make a clear stance about allowing their children be photographed instead of walking the fine line between self-promotion when convenient and blaming the media when unconvenient but of course, take one point and ridiculise it because you don’t know what to write else in defense of Jolie and other celebs.

    • Freya says:

      Well, patti, when/if you become famous, like AJ, just lock your kids in the basement
      and never take them out!

      BP has asked the paparazzi to take the kids’ pictures from the distance, using their zoom lenses, but they ignore him. They like to come close and call the kids’ names and get their reactions.

      I remember the video of the two of them walking to a dinner in NY, and a thousand flashes were in their faces, blinding them, and he said, “Can’t see a thing!”

  14. Sara says:

    It looks like she finally lightened her hair; the color looks much better and brighter. That Newsweek pic looks kind of scary, are they covering her cheeks because of how sunken they look? I really like Angelina, but she looks super unhealthy in that pic. I really have to wonder what is going on with her. Stress, eating disorder, severe health problem? You never know. I just hope for her kids sake that this is not self-induced.

  15. Ell says:

    How do the paps know she’s going to be there and how come she was prepared with sunglasses and Pax with a mask. Other high profile people seem to be able to move around privately when they like.

    I hope she’s not tipping them off and subjecting the children to this. It’s widely known she has a tight control on the media and PR.

    • Deltona lakes says:

      How does the press knows? People tip them off as to where they are staying and they wait for their prey. It’s a big pay day for these creeps so they’ll wait all day if they have to. If you notice there are more photos of them when they are outside of LA

  16. Kelly says:

    Angelina looks so glamorous… and with such a simple outfit.

  17. e.non says:

    is it wrong to covet zahara’s coat in an adult size… lol. you gotta love shiloh’s t-shirt with the tie; love those kids. they all have such distinct personalities; that household must be crazyfun.

  18. Sway says:

    “…and it’s totally unnecessary for her to be wearing shades, considering it’s dark out.”
    Sure, let the flashes blind her enough so she can walk into a wall, for example. Can’t you see how the kids are making faces and shielding their eyes, because of the white flashes? They can hurt your eyes pretty bad, you know.

    • Original Chloe says:

      Yeah – you can actually see Shi squinting in the first picture – if anything, they should be all wearing shades:(

  19. Tiffany says:

    Reading the acticle, I noticed the unnessary and out of place sentence about Pitt taking a picture on set. I know they are a couple but they were individuals before they met and still are. The writer of Radar has no subtelty.

  20. WhiteNoise says:

    Aw. I saw those pics earlier today and felt really bad for the kids. They genuinely look hacked off/upset. Horrible. 🙁

    Ditto re earlier comments on AJ’s so-called ‘plagiarizing’ of his story. What rubbish. I’m quite looking forward to seeing this now.

  21. Cheyenne says:

    Most impressive that Angie is on the cover of a news magazine. That’s a really gorgeous photo.

  23. olivea says:

    Hmm. Wonder how the paps knew she was taking the kids to that particular showing of the movie. Although I can’t comprehend what it is like to be at that level of celebrity, I think there just has to be some way to raise those kids out of the limelight and blinding flashbulbs.

    • Original Chloe says:

      Oh, olivia, you never dissapoint.

      (I’m guessing their followed them from the door of their house / hotel. That’s how these things usually happen anyway.)

      • olivia says:

        One would have to wonder: 1) How did anyone know they were in NY and 2) How did they know she was taking the kids to the movies tonight? *******Are the loons really this stupid to believe these people do not call the paps?**********

      • Seal Team 6 says:

      • Deltona lakes says:

        Olivia, it’s been all over the Internet for the past month that Angie’s NY premiere is Dec 5th btw cohosted by Women for Women Internationl

      • Original Chloe says:

        I would answer you, Olivia, but I think other people already did.

        Just please try remember how adamant you are about this subject next time you see a picture of your favorite celebrity taking her mineral water for a walk.

    • samira677 says:

      I wonder how the paps knew that Reese Witherspoon and her kids would be at Disney Land or Giselle would be at the park with her kids or Charlize Theron would be at the hair salon? It’s really bizarre that nobody has a problem with other celebrities being photographed but anytime Brad and Angelina is papped people claim that they called the paps because they somehow found a way to never be photographed unlike other celebrities.

    • Emma says:

      Olivia, I don’t want to turn this into a triangle fest, but I just gotta ask this. Last week, a picture of Jen and Justin (I’m referring to the picture that everyone said was them outside … it wasn’t, just look at the cement walls behind them and the overhead lights) surfaced, of them as they arrived at the Arclight theater to see “Hugo.” Paps were in the parking garage ‘waiting for them’ when they arrived, and snapped shots of them holding hands as they casually strolled through the garage.

      Why didn’t you post then, asking how the Paps knew when and where they would arrive?

    • leetruth says:

      Angie is at the the top echelon of stardom that’s why. Stop the nitpicking.

    • Sketch says:

      Do you really think she waited in line and bought the tickets there? No, she most likely called the front desk of the hotel she’s staying at and asked them to get her four tickets.

      If the desk manager didn’t call the paps, the bellhop who ran to get the tickets could have. Maybe it was a will-call and they foolishly used her name, prompting someone at the theater to make a call.

      For someone like AJ, paps will pay cash monies for information regarding where she will be.

      • NM9005 says:

        So I guess in this modern day of age there isn’t such a thing as “ordering online film tickets”? Or 5min before you arrive let them call the cinema and ask to enter via the backdoor or somewhere else unnoticable? Or let someone else make the call with false names? I’m sure they won’t mind once they see who it really is.
        I’m not famous but even I purchase my tickets online since it easier, faster and I can pick my seats beforehand. By my knowledge, you don’t have to fill in names so that problem is solved too.

        Honestly, for all the years Jolie spent in Hollywood you seem to perceive her as a beginner in this game.

  24. waa says:

    I like the way she’s dressed here. Most of face is covered by her hair and body is covered in clothes. She looks presentable without any frightening veins jetting out.

    Newsweek pic is positively spooky.

    beautiful family,angelina and her family are the most photograph family they donot need to alert the media because is not as if they are some z listers come on even if you hate them give them that.also she is gorgeous her bone structure is to die for unlike the fat injected botoxy faces of certain actresses

  26. gossip lover says:

    Really love that newsweek cover cannot wait to read the article

  27. Original Chloe says:

    Newsweek picture is gorgeous

  28. lisa says:

    Olivia everyone knew she was in NYC.. she was taping This Week. There were load of tweets and sightings.

    She is dressed in the cloths she was wearing in the taping that happened earlier in the day. I posted that earlier because I knew you or someone like you would say something about it.

    The portion of the interview that aired was nicely done I might add. Good to see the female cast members with her during the interview. Christiane is a pro, who covered this war and I love that she did the interview.

    but Olivia please continue your rants and conspiratorial assumptions. YOU never fail.

  29. Katherine says:

    Kaiser has a good take on this guy suing Jolie. He doesn’t seem to understand copyright law and I’m rather surprised that the law firm involved went forward with as weak a pleading as it did. The law firm does love “high profile” cases and to be on TV especially the 2 lawyers on the pleadings. They even included his goofy claims that he tried to contact Angelina via “her organization, Make It Right,” to propose building houses together.
    The pleading just reads rather amateruish for a law firm and could have been written in a few hours with almost everything taken directly from this guy’s website & his unending gossip site posts. I hope they checked him out 1st before taking his case. I know there is a huge Croatian community in Chicago – his American “rep” (a Croatian nationalist) who sent the initial letter to Graham King Films lives there.
    I look forward to watching this unfold.

    • Cheyenne says:

      If that law firm’s work is so sloppy that they don’t even know Make It Right is Brad’s organization, not Angie’s, this clown better get himself a new lawyer.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        I’m sure he went with that particular lawyer because he/she was cheap. The lawsuit seems more about getting publicity than about principle.

    • taylor says:

      I was wondering what law firm/lawyer would touch this, too, but I guess one that loves their own publicity at any cost makes sense. But in terms of money, they must be hoping she’ll settle, right, because otherwise how do they make anything? The guy can’t have enough to pay them when he loses, can he?

      And I agree about the sunglasses–given the squinting the kids are doing, she’s totally wearing them so she can still see.

  30. Katherine says:

    I am sure that people who frequent gossip sites as much as Olivia and Ell do must realize that the paparazzi have a network of contacts which keeps them informed of celebrity movements. They know where the Jolie Pitts stay and they stalk them and literally follow them around. There’s even been a guy on a bicycle who used to tail their car in NYC all the time so often that the kids had given him a nickname. It’s pretty simple really. But for those who thrive on tin hat theories there must always be something more, something sinister. LOL!

      You’re kidding, right?

      She’s a tomboy, so what? She’s five years old. She likes to play rough with her brothers. I will bet a dollar to a donut hole when she is thirteen she will be raiding Angie’s closet and borrowing all her make-up.

      Dressing up a little girl like a princess doesn’t guarantee she will turn into one. Cher tried that with Chastity Bono and look how that turned out.

      • katyalia says:

        C’mon. Not everything is a fight for gender equality. Or aimed as an insult against Jolie.
        Simply looking at pic now and then it’s a fair remark. Shall we poll husbands on this?

      • G says:

        Honestly it’s been two generations since girls dressed in frilly dresses?

        I hate the digs at both of them because she’s not dolled up like Suri Cruise…

      • miriam says:

        cheyanne, please take off the knuckledusters, it was just an observation I was making. Most kids that age all look androgynous and Shiloh isn’t an exception. Inmy opinion she looks more like a boy than a girl, but that doesn’t mean she wil always look that way. And no, I’m not saying she should be dressed up like a princess, just that she looks tomboyish.

    • Shay Kay says:

      *stares in understanding*

      I think Shiloh is absolutely adorable and very much a tomboy.I think Cheyenne was taking the “tomboy” comment to somehow negative about St. Jolie so she responded in her usual defensive manner but truth is that there’s not a thing wrong with being a tomboy and neither parent needs to be defended because Shiloh dresses more like her brothers than Z. Shiloh probably will start to want to look girlie when she’s old enough to start noticing boys or she may be like her mom and never go the girlie girl route.

    • anon says:

      I never think she is a boy. Until Shiloh says she is not a girl. I will continue to know she is a girl. To me Angie and Brad have 3 girls and 3 boys. Until they themselves (the children) make announcements about their genders I will continue to think Oh they have 3 girls and 3 boys.

    • Cheyenne says:

      miriam, dear, let me refresh your memory for you:

      “I always think that Shiloh is a boy”

      It’s one thing to comment that Shiloh seems very tomboyish. I could not.agree more. But to say you think she IS a boy? Can you recognize how ridiculous that statement is and maybe reconsider it?

      • Lithe says:

        I can see how someone who doesn’t follow news about the Jolie-Pitt family would have to make a conscious effort to remember that Shiloh is not a boy. As Miriam pointed out, kids that age are androgynous in their looks. Without telltale masculine or feminine features to rely on, we look to the clothing. And Shiloh’s style and colour preferences make it easy to forget she’s actually a girl.

        I detected no judgment in Miriam’s comments. And why should there be? There is nothing wrong with a girl dressing like a “typical” boy or vice versa. Thank goodness that Shiloh has parents who seem perfectly comfortable with letting her dress the way she wants. And I suspect that they quite rightly don’t care whether she grows out of it or not.

      • miriam says:

        cheyanne, I can’t keep up with celebrity kids, and Shiloh looks like more like boy to me facially and dresswise – perhaps you should stop taking offense and let people have their own opinions rather than jumping down their throats?

  32. whatevs says:

    I think Angelina has had recent work done on her nose and her upper lip again.

    That said I don’t believe that writer’s story. For one thing Honey and Blood refer to what the Balkans were called as the word Balkan coincidentally means Honey-Blood in Turkish. In the Old Testament Israel was called land of Milk and Honey, if my memory serves me right. Furthermore, using the continuous rape of the female lead as proof is ridic, because the Bosnian female war prisoners were infamously raped by Serbian soldiers continuously during that war, there were many abortions. A truly dark page in human history. Also he says this is a lame love story impossible during the war blah blah but he seems to omit the key fact that the chars fell in love -before- the war. Indeed there were Serbians and Bosnians who were married before the 90’s war but who knows how often that happens now. Anyhow I think he is pressed that Angelina is famous and he is not and is using her to get headlines hehehe

  33. Camille says:

    I’m not going to comment on the law suit, but I just wanted to say that AJ looks stunning in those pics with her kids, I love her outfit too, very chic. Those phototog flashes must be rough, no wonder AJ is wearing glasses.
    Those poor kids, the phototogs should have more respect for celeb kids.

    And how gorgeous does AJ look on that magazine cover. Not many other actresses could do a ‘beauty shot’ of just their face like she can.
    I love that she is selling this project without having to resort to doing half naked photo shoots (I really hope she doesn’t do one for this!).
    I like the new direction the AJ/Brange ‘brand’ is taking.

    • Shay Kay says:

      I wouldn’t worry too much about AJ doing half naked photo shoots again until she’s had time and the inclination to take better care of her body.Her face is stunning as usual and her hair looks much healthier so here’s to hoping she’ll follow suit on taking care of the rest of her body.Seriously she is really beautiful when she decides she want to be but right now she just ain’t there.

    • Shay Kay says:

      Since when is saying that AJ is too thin to do semi-nude pics “AJ bashing?”I also think the Duchess of Cornwall is far too thin and looks much better with her clothes on than with them off.I happen to like the duchess and I’m not bashing her either just calling it as I see it.Great job jumping on the defend Jolie at all costs against anything and absolutely nothing though.

  34. G says:

    The Newsweek photo an obvious homage to the famous Garbo one. Gorgeous.

    • taylor says:

      It is gorgeous, but it also reminds me of her own Vanity Fair cover a couple of months ago. I’m always amazed that “just” her face can make such a perfect picture.

  35. S says:

    The bad press of this movie is by Jen Aniston
    Is all a conspiracy of her and her publicist
    This film was intended to win many Oscar, but Jen is bad

  36. Moi says:

    I guess I’m the only person on earth who finds her really unattractive. She is starting to look more like Michael Jackson with ever ‘tweak’ to her face. She is completely emaciated and just looks gross.

    • miriam says:

      I always pictured her as more like Morticia Addams from the Addams Family. I think the constant weight loss is taking a toll on her looks. She looks much older than she is. Brad is starting to look his age too.

    • hatuh says:

      I think she’s one of those people who sometimes, yes, looks amazing, but sometimes she just looks flat-faced, huge-foreheaded and, of course, skeletal.

    I have to say.. I want Zahara’s coat too. it is a perfect little girl coat. Stylish.. She has her mother’s taste in coats. Angie has some great coats.

    and I have to say as a girl with brothers.. I love how she is holding on to him. The children seem very very close to each other.. I really love that.

  40. spinner says:

    Angie looks really good in the pics with the kids. I don’t care for the Newsweek Cover. She needs lip balm.

  41. Sakyiwaa says:

    And omg…omg :-D! Angie got a Newsweek cover? The cover reserved for world leaders & earth shakers and read by world leaders and earth shakers? One of the only mag that religiously gets delivered to Presidents & CEOs in their limos and private jets? A mag that is so global my Dad has a monthly subscription to it halfway across the world? My gray genetic scientist Dad is gonna know who the h*ll Angelina Jolie is in just a matter of days? Omgomgomg! This is such a nirvana moment! My Angie! Eat that, tabs!

  42. Rach says:

    HAHA someone wrote this comment on dlisted.

    What I want to know is if this woman is such a fucking genius like every sorry ass loon on celebitchy claims she is, why has this fucking film not been nominated for even one fucking award? No NY Film critics, no National Board of Review, not a damn thing. The only people who think this film and this woman are brilliant are the loons and the sorry ass press who worship at her feet.

    Couldnt agree more

    • lisa says:

      Did you write it??

      I know the dlisters are constantly here reading post. pissed if there are any positive comments. Because if you actually support or like her then you are a loon. While the people that are always ranting and following her every move or posting the most nasty things are what.. sane.. Seriously you people talk out of your asses more than your mouths. but with the filth that usually comes out it doesn’t really matter which opening you are using now does it.

      so if a movie is not nominated for an award it is not worthy. I guess this new take is for Angie only. Because lots of films don’t get nominated or win awards. But are quite award worthy.

      And for your uninformed tiny brain. ITLOBH has not been viewed by any nominating committee. Maybe she doesn’t care about awards. And because you all read the fan’s comments and run back to homebase to post what we say.. (gosh we are celebrities too huh being stalked and followed..I blush ) the people that have actually seen the film are quite impressed. So you and the other LOONS by default should prepare yourselves.

      Believe it or not everyone is not against her and that doesn’t make them loons. You and your ilk may want to STFU and stop caring so much. oh and don’t say you don’t.. because the fact that you and the other dlister have over 1 comment about her means you cared before you posted.

      Later loser..

      • kira says:

        I totally agree–I like MK’s posts, but the posters on there are something else…

        Only on D-Listed is calling someone “a heroin-addicted, incestuous, child-stealing, homewrecking WHORE” considered a perfectly normal response to an Angelina post–while saying, “Gee, this movie looks interesting,” will get you labeled a CRAZY LOON forever!!! Those people make Lindsay Lohan look rational, by comparison. 😉

      • Cheyenne says:

        @kira: Michael K is funny. But the people posting on his website evidently never learned the difference between funny and obnoxious. Those losers are real-life d-listers.

    • Emma says:

      If the idiot who wrote that comment was as smart as they think they are, they’d realize that a film has to be in ‘release’ or at the very least, to have been presented at a film festival in order to be eligible for any awards. The film is being premiered this week.

    • kira says:

      I don’t recall many here saying the film is brilliant–more like they hope it’s good, it sounds good, and it’s a different story.

      Further, the film isn’t out. In order to be nominated for anything, a film has to be RELEASED.

      I think the D-listed people dislike her so much that if they see you saying something like, “well, this is interesting, let’s see what it looks like when it comes out…” Just that and they start screaming loon at the top of their childish lungs–seriously warped mindsets. I am not even an Angie fan, but I do want to see the film because I have some family roots in this area and it looks interesting to me. If it was on another topic, I might pass.

    • Original Chloe says:

      It actually got awarded at the Sarajevo Movie Festival, by the people who have actually witnessed both the events that the movie is about, and the movie itself.

      Other than that it hasn’t been shown anywhere. (I’m not saying that the film is brilliant, I’m just saying there’s a tad too much criticism for a movie no one has seen yet)

    • Cheyenne says:

      Good lord have mercy, they are absolutely obsessed with this site on dlisted. They are always referencing what people post on here. You don’t seriously believe that we “sorry-ass loons” give a rat’s patootie what those sorry-ass losers think about us, do you?

      Or do you?

      Rach, that is yours and their own narrow minded opinion.

  43. Amanda says:

    Zahara and Pax are über cute. I kinda feel like they’re BF’s and she’s always grabbing onto his hand.

  44. pwal says:

    Reading that Braddock dude’s statement makes me think of that dude who tried to raise hell after Angelina reformed the Maddox Cambodian project, sans ole dude (since he likely embezzled thousands of dollars). His statement reeks of resentment because Angelina didn’t raise money for him to make his movie or that Angelina opted to use her cast and crew as advisers versus giving him a call (and a career boost).

    Interesting that the vitriol isn’t against his country men and women who participated in this project, since they opted to work with Angelina versus working with him, since, supposedly, he dabbles in all things media.

    The defendants in this lawsuit are doing the right thing in not slapping gag orders on him. He sounds like a bitter loon who has a serious persecution complex.

    • Original Chloe says:

      I’m also beginning to wonder how *exactly* does he think AJ plagiarized his novel (one of the commenters ranting above revealed the book will soon be published in English – from which I’m guessing it hasn’t been so far, though I might be wrong) I mean, the guy certainly has an ego – not that rare among writers – to assume everyone knows his novel and that he has a monopoly on the Balkan story.

      That aside, he also seems quite assured that Jolie’s movie cannot do justice to the atrocities of this conflict, while his novel can, which makes me ask: why are you, sir, so certain *you* are the best person to depict the psyche of someone who’s been in a rape camp? (By which I do not mean that you need to experience traumatizing events yourself to make art that uses them, just think of Art Spiegelman’s “Maus” and anyway, we don’t even know exactly what Jolie’s movie is about, all we have is the trailer and some speculation)

      I’m just saying there’s awfully lot of hubris in that man’s attitude to the topic he claims others to be insensitive about.

  45. Medusa says:

    Her lips look more puffed up than usual.

    • Emma says:

      Interesting … so do you think Shiloh and the twins are getting their lips done too? Their lips are just as ‘puffy’ as their Mom’s.

  46. Braddock’s ;-))))))

  47. KellyinSeattle says:

    Like rape/war/POW camps only happen in his book and not thousands and thousands of places in the world. So I guess any book/magazine on the Nazi concentration camp; if Anne Frank could, she could sue them as hers was the only eyewitness account? Please…

  48. leetruth says:

    Beautiful cover. Proud that it is a newsmagazine. All Angie fans should give this film all the support.

    • Original Chloe says:

      My thoughts exactly – Newsweek (and not People or whatnot), that’s something.

      • L says:

        It’s a great picture, but newsweek is slowly turning away from its newsmagazine roots. Their new editor Tina Brown is horrible “Diana at 50?” photoshopping diana into pictures with her kids and kate? That Michelle Bachman picture (I think that woman is crazy and even I though that was horrible)

  49. Oooo ya! C’mon Dec.23rd!!

  50. Loralei says:

    Though I think Angelina is absolutely gorgeous, I find the Newsweek cover photo to be frightening. It’s difficult to take a bad picture of her, but somehow they managed to make her look goulish. Anyone ever noticed how HUGE her hands are? I Iove that black coat.

  51. sandy#1 says:

    beautiful cover, beautiful woman, lovely family. can’t wait for the movie, that it all.

  52. Nikki says:

    The Braddock guy doesn’t seem to even know who the movie is about. He thinks that Rade the old man is the main character and he’s pissed at her for making a pro Serb movie which the actors say its not. He is angry that she wouldn’t work with him, he’s angry because she shot in Budapest and not Sarajevo he’s mad because he says that she hasn’t helped the women that suffered in the conflict but she lobbied perhaps indirectly for the housing for the sisters in Bosnia and 13 others and her cast member Fedja Stukan said that she donated millions to speed up the process of bringing justice to anyone who in anyway participated in crimes against women.

    • Original Chloe says:

      Yeah – I’m wondering how the trial is going to proceed without anyone (including the plaintiff himself) having seen the movie so far. Will it start only after the premiere? Will there be secret screening? Will there even *be* a trial at this stage or, or did he just file in some papers and in fact it is all going to be dismissed after a clerk looks through it?

      Oh dear, how do you actually go about the fact that you haven’t actually seen the very reason you’re taking someone to court? Do you say “I *think* she might have stolen from me?” or “I’ve heard people say things that make me think she might have?” How do you sue someone on hypothetical grounds?

      Honestly, the closer I look into it (and mind you, I haven’t read the novel nor seen the movie, obviously – I know only what the author himself is saying) the more it looks like he doesn’t have a leg to stand on: why is he going to court pre-emptively? It’s not like he’s going to stop the release (and it doesn’t seem to be his purpose anyway)

      Why not wait for actual proof? Wouldn’t that make a better case?

      I honestly hope Mr Braddock was misinformed and made a snap judgment, and that he’s not simply fishing for an English publisher using the buzz surrounding Jolie and the pre-Oscar timing, cause that’d be cynical, considering the theme of his book and the movie.

    • lisa says:

      Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can see the man is only out for cash. His claim she “stole” his work is minor in his rant. Oh and his book was not in English. How did Angie read it. Did she pay someone to read it to her.

      Very obvious scam. But Angie joins a long list of people accused. Thing is all the none fans (I refrain from saying haters) love to celebrate and run off at the mouth. Then the truth emerges and they stand in the opening looks like fools YET AGAIN..

      wonder if they ever get tired of it :/

  53. Beregorl says:

    This book doesn’t sound that unique for me.

    In Schindler’s List: Amon Göth, the commander of a concentration camp (played by the wonderful Ralph Fiennes) takes a Jewish girl, Helen Hirsch (Embeth Davidtz) as his housekeeper. This crazy monster starts to feel something for her: a mixture of lust, hate and gentleness. If I recall correctly, at the end of the movie he let Schindler (Liam Neeson) to set her free.

    In The Pianist: in the Warsaw ghetto a German general (Thomas Kretschmann) saves the Jewish pianist’s (Adrien Brody) life whom he knew for I don’t know, five minutes?

    And the other war movies/books? The tons of interviews and news events? Romeo and Juliet in Sarajevo?

    I’m not even sure the writer cares about the outcome of the trial. This whole stunt gaves him publicity. I mean, the movie will be released today and his his book will be published in English soon. Qué sorpresa. People will be interested: both haters and fans may read it to prove their point (“the famewhoring, homewrecker skeleton stole it!!!” – “this is b*llshit, it’s obviously she didn’t steal anything”). And he may establish his image as the brave little David, the talented writer, son of a war-torn nation who fought against Goliath, the shameless thieves of Hollywood who turn every single story to a cheesy melodrama.

    And if we really have to quote comments for dlisted, here’s my favourite:
    “Whaaaaa, whine, whaaaaaa!
    She stole her story from my book!
    Whaaaa whine
    No-one can ever have the same idea as meeeee!
    I lived through a war so I deserve good shit!
    Whine whine whine.”
    That sums it up.

    I like that she takes her kids to normal places like the rest of us get to go to. I’m sure she asks who wants to go and who wants to stay home. She probably gives them a big pep talk before they leave. They know how it’s going to be and they want to go anyway.
