Angelina Jolie announces she’ll fade away, people wonder when

Angelina Jolie says that she’s ready to quit working and “fade away.” She’s made frequent comments lately about how her kids are her first priority and she doesn’t feel as inclined to act as she used to. Now she’s made it perfectly clear that she has a few upcoming projects planned but after that she doesn’t want to work anymore.

Angelina Jolie says she plans to give up acting to be a full-time mother.

“I don’t plan to keep acting very long. I’m ready to do a few things now and fade away and get ready to be a grandma one day,” she tells BBC News in a new interview. “I’m not so worried that I want to keep this pace up and try to be something and be a celebrity.”

She says she’s lucky to take on great roles but “everything comes in seasons. I hopefully won’t be needing to do that later in my life anyway,” she adds.

The 33-year-old Changeling star — who says she won’t work for a year after she returns to work in February — stresses, “I don’t think I’ll ever say I’m never, ever gonna work because maybe there’s that interesting project where I feel creative.

“I like being home a lot,” the mother of six adds. “First and foremost, I have a lot of children, and I need to make sure they’re growing right and they’ve got us there for them.”

[From Us Weekly]

She’s still giving a bit of a mixed message. You can’t “fade away” completely when you keep the door open to possibly working if the right project comes along. That just means people are constantly going to try to tempt her with the perfect film. And I don’t think it’s possible for her to live the low-key life she’s describing. The woman is the mother of Brad Pitt’s children. They travel with a cavalcade of staff wherever they go. Even if she and Brad were both to quit acting, I don’t think they’d be able to fade into oblivion. People are curious about Brangelina and the more they hide the more everyone else will seek.

If I were to bet on it, I’d say Angelina will slow down the frequency of her work but still maintain a Hollywood presence.

    I hope it’s soon!

  2. Megan says:

    They don’t hide though, that’s the point. How many interviews has she done in the last month, 50? It’s like all those hasbeen celebrities that haven’t acted/sung in years, but somehow they’re still in the media, just because they constantly talk to the press. She’ll just become one of them if she stops acting.

  3. KERRI says:

    She wants to spend more time with Brad and their children. She didn’t mention giving up her charity work, but I’m guessing she’ll share and work with Brad on his charity projects.

    This decision will bring their family closer than ever. And if a movie project comes up here or there, so what? She’s stating she won’t be making 2-3 movies a year.

    Sighhh, complete contentment with the man she love and her beautiful children.

  4. devilgirl says:

    Wow, Christmas comes early!

  5. Enonymous says:

    Please please PLEASE Angelina, take Brad with you and persuade him to stay at home too. After all wasn’t HE the one that was so desperate for kids so he should give up his ‘career’ (every movie he has recently done has miserable failed at the box office anyway) and concentrate on that. and He is getting on my last nerve with his fugly mug plastered in every magazine cover ALL the time.

  6. kate says:

    go away please. now.

  7. morgs says:

    When you retire could you please give back some of Bradley’s hotness? You’ll no longer need it and he’s looking a bit rough these days…

  8. Samantha says:

    She is only 33!!?!! I thought she was way older…I didn’t realize Brad Pitt was 12 years older…Man…she really isn’t aging well.

  9. Hollz says:

    In touch has her preggo again >.<

  10. vdantev says:

    When the tabs quit f’n well printing stories about her. Don’t make a problem and then bitch about it, author !

  11. Murmur says:

    I hope she will spend some time with those kids she wanted so badly. With her schedule and Brad’s I seriously wonder how much time they are able to be with them.

    On the other hand. I think she’s a fairly good actor (better than Brad–that’s for sure) and I think I’d miss that part of her if she does take a break from acting.

  12. prissa says:

    I really hope they stay together “forever” because if/when they breakup it’s gonna BE an absolute maelstrom with the way she’s shoved how perfect and happy their family is. How ironic it’ll be if he left HER for another woman too. I’m an AJ fan and I’m OVER IT ALREADY!!! 🙄

  13. Lisa says:

    I understand her point that as a mother you want to be home. She is in a great position not to worry about making money, so more power to her. So if she wants to gradually stop working, then great. AJ has a lot on her plate to begin with but seems to be managing quite well. Hopefully once all the Kung Fu Panda garbage is over, all these interviews and AJ revelations will come to an end.

  14. doodahs says:

    She seems like a smart woman who doesn’t have much in the way of a filter. She simply says what she feels in any given moment and because the press jumps with bated breath on her every word, it gets quoted as a statement of intention.
    Very much doubt she will ever just ‘fade away’… Seems more like wishful thinking on her part to me. I guess every mega celeb has days where they just want to be ‘normal’… this seems like hers. Mind you, her mom gave up her acting ambitions to raise her and James, so, you never know.

    Demi Moore did it. She moved her family out of LA and raised them in.. Idaho was it?

  15. Kristen says:

    Prissa –

    jealous much?

  16. Aspen says:

    They can fade out of public scrutiny if they want to. Two years go by with neither of them in a major film and without any “event” appearances…the paps will lose interest and so will the public.

    Demi Moore was THE it girl when I was in high school. She was as famous as famous gets, and she was on the cover of everything every day. She moved to a tiny little town, behaved very well to all the people living there, and raised her girls away from Hollywood. And it worked.

    Whether the Jolie-Pitts will do that? Dunno. But they certainly could if they wanted to.

  17. Rosanna says:

    Oh she won’t fade. She’s too good of an actress. She will do something like Meryl Streep or Michelle Pfeiffer did, fewer movies of better quality. But that’s about it.

  18. Cheyenne says:

    LOL @ the Jenhags hoping Angie fades away, like that’s going to reverse Aniston’s slide into oblivion.

    Don’t even think about it. Aniston’s a vampire feeding off the Jolie-Pitts. Once the triangle is dead, so is she, figuratively speaking. She won’t even be able to throw herself another pity party to jump-start her sagging career.

  19. James says:

    No! after all the expensive plastic surgeries and a successful red-carpet walk for DVD, you are leaving us? No! Angelina Jolie please stay. We need you! We can’t live without your good movies and your beauty and your charity work. We the world need you!

    (What a typical diva!)

  20. WTF?!?! says:

    “Oh she won’t fade. She’s too good of an actress. ”

    😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    Not since Girl, Interrupted. And I don’t think she was acting.

  21. Christina X says:

    What does this have to do with Jennifer Aniston again?

    Oh wait, nothing.

    Angelina Jolie’s so f-ing fascinating that everything about her is turned around into an AJ vs. JA thing, even if Aniston has no relevance to the goddamn story whatsoever. Just admit it, the only intrigue this woman has is the back and forth frigging bitch fest between her and Aniston.

    You hate Jennifer Aniston. We get it. Why you have to announce that every chance you get is beyond the rest of us.

    To be fair, the same applies to Jennifer Aniston really, but I don’t know, at least her fans make more sense than you do?


    The only reason I ever bother reading anything about this human narcotic is to poke fun at the irrelevant pile-ons anyway.

    Team Aniston: “You’re a homewrecker!”

    Team Jolie: “Yeah? Well…well…take that Jennifer Maniston! Nyeh!”

  22. Mary says:

    Why is it when she does press for a movie, she is going on and on. Let’s really look at how much she has put herself in the press. Tabloids are not her doing as she does not put herself on those covers, and she does not put herself in blogs to get hits.

    She finished a movie in December of last year and then lived her life. She did the awards season for a few weeks in February, then did nothing until June. Again, part of doing press for a film. She disappears again until the fall, except for the photo session with the babies. You never saw her during the summer at all except for that. Now she is doing press, like other actors doing the same thing.

    Nicole Kidman has been on the cover of how manhy magazines and was also on Oprah. So again, when Ms. Jolie does press, it is too much, but when others do it, it is OK. Double standard again.

    When tabloids stop making up stuff, and people stop taking it as truth and keep repeating it, then don’t complain about her.

  23. Shane says:

    I hope Brad and Angelina keep their marbles through all this constant media bullsh*t.

    The kids can’t afford for their parents to go off the deep end and have a breakdown, especially Mom.

  24. susan says:

    Please do honey – please do. Just quit talking about it and do it.

  25. Kristin says:

    She is so annoying sometimes. You will fade when you just shut up and stop doing movies like you say you are going to.

  26. RAN says:

    OMG 😆 Devilgirl and Christina, I absolutely worship you today 😉 The two of you have made me laugh out loud – something that’s been a bit challenging after reading all the vitriol on these threads! Christina, I second your thoughts.

    Quick comment, Prissa, I will NOT be able to handle it if they break up… the freak out would be far too intense. I’d (personally) prefer that she stick to her word, in this case, and they live happily ever after.

  27. Tess says:

    She’ll know we’re callin’ when the phone don’t ring…

  28. Christina X says:

    Thanks, RAN!

  29. Eileen says:

    Ooohhhhh-when she said “fade away” I thought she meant through not eating…because that would be a definite possibility. Fading from limelight…ehhhh not so much!

  30. Sunnyjyl says:

    Please, please, please fade away. Make it soon.

  31. DD says:

    Nooooo. Brad should be the stay at home dad! AJ is too talented and stunning to stop working, besides she has the balls in that relationship.

  32. HallieB says:

    Angelina seems seriously seriously invested in Brad and their children. I have been trying to think of another recent example of an AList actress at the height of her earning power and world wide popularity who talks about working less and less at age 33 and MichellePf came to mind as she dropped out to raise her kids as well as Annette Benning who was older than Angie when she did so. Since she has been with Brad Angelina has only worked in films that required just a few months shooting, or as in the case of KFP one week of work, and she has not now worked in over a year. Her career actions for the last couple of years have certainly indicated that she does intend to work less, and spend most of her time with her family. I happen to think she is an excellent actress with great screen presence and will miss her if she does work less, but I can understand her putting her family first. Anyone with 6 small children has to make choices in life that puts the needs of the kids first, at least for a while. Brad does appear to me to be entirely supportive of and devoted to Angelina and their kids. But who knows what will happen, only time can provide an answer.

    I didn’t intend to ramble on, but I so want to see some happiness in this world for a change. 3 of my good friends have just been laid off from jobs they have had for years, a bad news day.

  33. Michelle says:

    cheyenne and christina x you don’t have to be so mean. AJ can be a decent actress. I really liked Girl Interrupted, Bone Collector the Tomb Raiders, MAMS, A Mighty Heart, and Wanted. They were all really good. If she stopped acting she would be missed. But SOMEONE’S gotta raise all those babies!!! No seriously, I am a JA fan but believe it or not I do not hate AJ. They have a beautiful family and hopefully she will take more time and nurture it:)

  34. Christina X says:

    I wasn’t being mean at all.

    I just wished certain people would just grow up.

    I never said anything about her acting career, and I actually commend you for liking Jolie and actually expressing yourself in a rational, adult manner.

  35. Cheyenne says:

    Um, Michelle… she’s more than a “decent” actress. Actresses who are just “decent” don’t win Oscars.

    Actually, I think she has become less and less interested in acting as her children get older and need more of her time. I think her main interests are 1) Brad and the kids, 2) humanitarian work, and 3) acting, in that order. She’s already proven herself as an actress. And, unlike Aniston, she doesn’t need to scrounge for parts and has no problem getting her films distributed and released.

  36. geekaziod says:

    She’s not going to fade away. She doesn’t want to, if she truely wanted privacy and what not she’s be like the Depps.

  37. TM says:

    She is just living her life the way she wants it and she will pick and choose , when , what , how and where. I have a great admiration for her for living absolutely the way she wants and not hanging on what has been , or what it should have been or what will people think of me.
    The great thing about having all that money is it should be able to buy you the freedom to choose the way you want your life to be, whithin the boundries of your comfort and Angelina has been very succesful in doing just that. Her georgeous looks and fame are mixed blessings and she is also aware of it , and I do think she is grateful for her career,public facination with her while wryly accepting all the hoopla that goes with it.

  38. Kaiser says:

    I hope this means she won’t be making Atlas Shrugged… that does not deserve to be made into a film.

  39. Lola says:

    Goooooooooooooooooooooooo , already b***h

  40. Michelle says:

    She had a couple serious blunders. Remember Original Sin, that was CRAP. As were Alexander and Good Shepherd. But that isn’t all her fault. She is ok all around. Girl Interupted was GREAT though and she deserved the Oscar for it. Oh, how could I have missed Hackers, a GREAT movie also. I like the fact that she isn’t cookie cutter. JA definately IS cookie cutter, and AJ is more interesting. Although as I said in a different post I am a FRIENDS fan for life!! Love them. Laugh everytime I watch them, therefore JA will always be endeared to my heart. But as someone, possibly from another post (so many AJ/JA posts lately they are all melting together in my brain) I would probably pick AJ to hang out with if I could. Although all her die hard fans drive me crazy cause they can be heartless. JA is a person. Someone said earlier the sting of a failed marriage never heals 100% (I imagine, happily married!) I feel for her. Anyway sorry for going off topic (as I am sure SOMEONE will point out at a later time)!!!

  41. Kaiser says:

    The Good Shepherd was a really good movie. Personally, I was blown away by it. 😯

  42. Kim says:

    Please please disappear woman. Please. We can pay you a sum to go away. Start a website to fundraise for your diasppaerance. You will be amazed at how much money you will collect.

    She is a one dimensional actor who can only pull off femme fatale roles. The industry will not miss her seriously. Who missed Demi Moore and she was a much much better actress. This industry moves on.

    But I doubt she can fade away seriously. She has invested so much in this fame. She has had biological kids who she swore she would never have and don’t believe that bull about Pitt changing her mind. She knew it would give her all the fame she has dreamed of. Now she has it, why would she fade.

    She also does not have enough money to sustain her life of excesses without working. She does not get paid a lot for movies. Made only 14 million last year. Now that may seem a lot to many of us but not if you have 6 kids, 6 houses and a private jet. If Puff Daddy is feeling the pinch and he has more than both Brad and Angelina, then Angelina will be broke with a year of retiring. Why do you think Brad is doing commercials? He is an aging washed up actor whose movies are not doing well any more. He needs all the money he can get.

    I am not holding my breath on this one. Remember she was supposed to retire after Pax for a year. Why did she say it or even adopt when she had signed on all those contracts? This woman is a liar. This is just another lie.

  43. Kim says:

    Good shepahard was a nice movie true, but it was ruined by her over acting and one dimensional interpretation of the character.It could as well have been Mrs Smith, Marianne Pearl or her character in changeling. Angelina has not acting depth, that is why her character seem the same from movie to movie with a change of clothes and time.

  44. nuckingfats says:

    KIM: Angelina Jolie can stop working anytime she wants to and not worry about money for the rest of her life. You are an idiot for comparing Brad Pitt to Diddy. Brad is #5 in the Top Celebrity list (Diddy is not even listed.) By the way, AJ made $20M last year and Brad made $35M. That’s not chopped liver. Brad is worth more than a $100 million, even though he gave Jennifer Aniston $50M in their divorce.

  45. roller says:

    comparing angelina jolie to michelle pfeiffer and meryl streep? err… okay.

    and angelina announcing she’s going to fade away is the wisest thing i’ve ever heard out of her mouth. and lets hope she keeps her word this time. lord knows she says things and then comes up with contradictory statements after.

  46. roller says:

    kim: Remember she was supposed to retire after Pax for a year.

    i wanted to mention that but i couldnt remember the facts correctly.

    its nice to see angelina fans defending her and calling other posters names(read: IDIOT) 🙂

  47. Kim says:

    Nuckingfats, we have seen wealthier celebrities with fewer children and more modest lives go bankrupt. That Forbes list also considere the number of times a celebrity has appaered in tabloids and on the internet. No one beats the Jolie- Pitt in whoring out themselves.

    Celebrity standards they are not wealthy. Puff Daddy is atleast worth $300mln- 400mln. Angelina made $14-15 million according to forbes. OK there is money for selling pictures of their kids.

    They are not getting younger. Their life is excessive, 6 homes, private jets, security etc. Brad’s movie’s are not selling at all. He has to do ads to make ends meet.

    Brad was woth $110 million three years ago, since then he has led a life of spending spending and more spending. I can bet he is worth half that by now. By the way, the money paid to Jen was for her stake in the studio Plan B that they started together. Brad Grey the other share holder also contributed some of it.

    Note: At the moment, Plan B is not doing well.

  48. Cheyenne says:

    So sorry, Kim, but the Jolie-Pitts are not going to break up or go bankrupt just to please you.

    I sincerely hope you get over your irrational hatred and spite toward two people who have done nothing to harm you. I can understand why you worship Jennifer Aniston as she has become the patron saint of dumped women everywhere, but face it, honey, Brad Pitt was not the man who dumped you, and Angelina Jolie was not the woman you got dumped for.

  49. Stoked says:

    I’m in two minds about this.

    Her fading away would take her out of the press, media etc, a blessed relief. But then she has made some very enjoyable movies and I’d like to see some more of those.

    Laser Modules For Raves!!!

  50. xiaoecho says:

    Why are people saying Brad is washed up? Burn After Reading was the funniest I’ve ever seen him – he’s in top form

  51. xiaoecho says:

    Kim……You are right, you don’t know what it is

  52. IMO says:

    33 years old women don’t look so old.

    I work with some women who are in their 40s and Angelina looks like she is in her mid 40s.

    Those women don’t have the money to have all the team of assistants, nannies, chefs etc. that Angelina has so she could look more rested.

    That is without takinbg into account the plastic surgeries Angelina has been doing for the past 5-7 years.

  53. IMO says:

    Angelina is an attention seeker.

    She LOVES the attention and craves more of it at any price.

    That is why she is always using her children and constantly gives interviews.

    She also promised to take a year off to help her children and the newly adopted Pax to adjust.

    She never did it.

  54. IMO says:

    Her last movies did pretty bad compared to what she was paid and what was expected, so perhaps that her way to cope with the fact that the industry has begun to notice how overrated she is.

    It’s a PR spin to focus on her as “a MOTHER” to offset bad press she is getting for admitting to being romantically invioved with a married man despite her past claims that they were onlt friends.

  55. someone says:

    The sooner the better IMO..And I agree that she and Brad will not stay together..eventually even the kids won’t be enough to keep them under the same roof. Poor Brangaloonies will self destruct..

  56. geronimo says:

    xia – agree, Pitt is hilarious in it and I’m not a Pitt fan (at least not much of his recent stuff). BAR has had excellent European reviews and has a 78% critial rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. Kim, as usual, is talking through her blind prejudices and her fixation on BO figs which, as intelligent people would know, are no indication of quality or success.

    Oh, and Kim, I’ve left my apology to you over on the other AJ 12th Nov thread.

  57. xiaoecho says:

    geronimo………yeah, I still feel guilty for LMAO as Brad got it in the face – too funny. The Pitts (how I love to call them that) are THE power couple in Hollywood at the moment. They both schmooze and work with the heavyweights in the industry.Can’t wait to see The Changeling but as for the whole ‘rainbow family’ thing….pfft!

  58. sauvage says:

    She said practically the same thing after Shilou was born and they adopted Pax – and then went straight back to work. So I think that’s a publicity stunt.

  59. geronimo says:

    I’m intrigued to see The Changeling too (any opportunity to see Malkovich on screen), although really not expecting it to do big BO, just because of the type of film it is. But we’ll see.

    Re the other, I’ve lost the will to post on anything else to do with this ongoing saga. Major overload.

  60. Susan says:

    “Oh she won’t fade. She’s too good of an actress. ”

    Not since Girl, Interrupted. And I don’t think she was acting.

    LOL! That is THE best comment I’ve read in any AJ thread yet! So true!

    It’s called “narcissim” people.

  61. teri says:

    please make it soon and take that dumbass brad with you who cheats on every woman he has ever been with. I bet he tells them that he loves them too! he obviously dosen’t know what love is!! maybe they can go to the dark side together!!:twisted: 😈

  62. Kim says:

    Geronimo apology accepted. I have read my posts again but I can’t see where I said BAR got bad reviews. I said it tanked at the BO. Lets face it, Brad Pitt’s hayday is over. As for them being a power couple, I guess Angelina has worked hard for that. Poor her hollywood still hates her. I don’t many in hollywood who still like her. Look at how they slighted her for Amighty heart, she did not even get an Oscar nomination. Apart from Clint Eastwood who wanted to promote his movie and his diaper was full at the time, people do not even find this woman beautiful. With all that cosmetic surgery and botox injections, who buys that kind of plasticine outdated cleopatra look?

    If they are a power couple in hollywood, with so much influence and friends, why did they run away? Who are their friends exactly? Why uncomfortable on Oprah’s sofa?

  63. Jackie says:

    Instead of people applauding her for putting her career on the back burner in order to raise her family, there seems to be a lot of excitement about her being less visible. If she decided to continue her career as visibly as the way she has kids, no doubt bloggers and readers everywhere would have a field day that she doesn’t have her priorities straight. The poor woman has no chance. I think there’s nothing wrong with doing a movie here and there as long as it’s something she can believe in. It seems no one can be happy with the decisions a celebrity makes. Remember when Nicole was the fat one to Paris’ skinny? Then Nicole lost a ton of weight and all the media could do was talk about her being anorexic? Is there no making anyone happy? Yeah, yeah, I know it comes with the fame. With Angelina at least, she lets that roll off her back. Kudos for her for people able to make the choices she has. No one can accuse her of using her children as accessories that are to be seen and not heard.

  64. geronimo says:

    @Kim – can’t have a conversation with somone who equates BO figs with quality and success, or someone who describes BAR as Pitt’s movie, or someone who knows diddly squat about the Coens. And don’t want to have a conversation with someone who actively looks for, thrives on and gloats over what they very subjectively perceive as other people’s ‘failures’.

  65. Christina X says:

    Off topic, I know: But isn’t Changeling a remake?

  66. RAN says:

    “don’t want to have a conversation with someone who actively looks for, thrives on and gloats over what they very subjectively perceive as other people’s ‘failures’.”

    But G – EVERYONE does that to JA… no one seems to mind when it happens on those threads. Not picking on you – I think you’re very reasonable and level headed, but… no one consistently calls out the rabid weirdos on the AJ/BP threads as being multiple posters (unless they’re JA supporters) and no one steps in, as you’ve done above, and made such a rational statement on other threads. Do I make sense? I’m not trying to antagonize, just trying to figure out what it is that makes AJ threads any different.

  67. geronimo says:

    Christina – there are 2 other relatively recent films of that name but they’re different stories. See over on imdb – would put link but fed up of being moderated.

  68. Eileen says:

    CB-is there some way to find an average number of posts on anything AJ or JA realted, compared to other threads on here? Neither one does it for me-I mean I don’t dislike them. But when you post anything about them on here, it’s the first one I read…well I don’t even read the article just the posts! These two really bring out the worst in some people on here. There needs to be the JA or AJ gang-east coast and west coast! Well AJ’s gang would have a hard time pinning down a particular coast since it changes every week….AJ French Rivera shout out!….AJ Gulf of Mexico shout out!…oh wait she’s in Cambodia this week? Damn!….

  69. nag says:

    I’ll believe her when I don’t see or hear her..

  70. vdantev says:

    “I don’t want to have a conversation with someone who actively looks for, thrives on and gloats over what they very subjectively perceive as other people’s ‘failures’.”

    Then WTF are you doing on a gossip blog? This isn’t the Temple of the Holy Buddha where mistakes are counted as stones on the Path of Enlightenment. They are barbs to be hurled back with cruel delight at celebs we don’t like.

    I’ll believe her when I don’t see or hear her

    Stop visiting gossip sites, turn off your TV, don’t go to a movie ever- problem solved. She’s not knocking down your door telling you about her life. You are actively seeking it out and are therefore part of your own problem.

    Off topic, I know: But isn’t Changeling a remake?

    Most everything is anymore, since Hollywood decided to go with what’s tested and safe instead of breaking new ground.

    Angelina is an attention seeker.

    She LOVES the attention and craves more of it at any price.

    Once more its sorta part of the job description. They don’t make movies in dark canyons unknown to mortal men and then store them in a vault never to be seen. Movies are made to generate cash to make even more movies and part of the business in ADVERTISING. And the cheapest form of advertising is having your stars talk about the movies, and then inevitably the personal questions come out.

    Again, she’s not kicking down your door and telling you about her personal life- you are a semi-active participant in the exchange. When that changes let me know. On second thought- call 911 because AJ just broke into your house AND THEN let me know.

  71. geronimo says:

    RAN – 2 things: This is the first instance where I have ever called someone out for multiple posting, and for very specific reasons which I’ve explained to Kim. And since apologised to her.

    I can’t take responsibility for what other people post. I’m only responsible for my own posting and, as a rule, despite findng a lot of what comes from both sides hateful, feel no obligation to take nutjobs of either persuasion to task. Why? Because too much of it is too demented to take seriously.

    Re my comment here, I am allergic to Kim’s illogic.

    Dante – Context, man, context. The remark was addressed specifically to Kim. I don’t want to do it with KIM. Got it? Just KIM! Holy f*king hell. 😯

    Your comments never cease to humor me-love it!
    Hey wait a minute! Your comment was longer than a paragraph. Does that mean you failed at life?

    Nothing like an AJ thread to get everybody going

    I am so happy to see that she and Brad have their priorities straight. They are a great family and Brad and Angie even thought they say marriage is not important, I would bet it will happen.
    It is nice to see a star powered couple trying to make it work in the crazy business they are in. God Bless the Jolie Pitts

    umm who said AJ looked like in her mid 40s is nuts. Get your prescription checked, if she looked like she was old she wouldn’t be at the top of her game… especially in Hollywood.

  77. xiaoecho says:

    Er, Geronimo, that was supposed to be Geronimo 73 😳

    Well, I used to say this all the time. And one day I quit. But no-one is paying me millions of dollars for a few months work, nor do I have million of adoring fans. I eventually did quit this Sept and am now at home with my son. She sounds wistful to me. I don’t see her quitting though because her influence at the UN depends on her fame.

    I just have to say, I LOVE the title of this article. It’s straight from The Onion!

  81. RAN says:

    Gotcha Geronimo. I was just curious. I don’t keep track of who ramps up the hysteria about the multiple posters so I didn’t pay attention to the fact that you haven’t been involved before. It just seems to happen a LOT.

    Thanks for the response – I get where you’re coming from.

    People. Just because someone won an Oscar doesn’t mean they’re a good actor/actress. God knows how many mediocre actors and actresses actually win the award, seeing that they have to put on that production every single year, as if there is limitless talent out there. Mostly, they’re just less mediocre than the rest during that year, which means they deserve an award.

    it’s just a way of life to her fade away. more time to stay with her family can also get a lot. I love this Angle very much!

    I don’t think she will ever disappear from the entertainment world, just like I would never quit using a jetlasers green laser pointer though I ever swore I would.

  85. Alex Bony says:

    To be herself, this is just the real way that everyone should do. It doesn’t mean bad new for her fade away, which just like my forever love of laser pointer, which is a perfect tool for stargazing in the night sky.
