Angelina Jolie answers Madonna’s dig, one ups her

angelinamadonna.jpg
Angelina Jolie just keeps giving interviews and talking to the press. She recently gave a backhanded compliment to Madonna, supposedly telling a French magazine that she “would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal,” but that she has “been horrified by the attacks [Madonna's] been subjected to [for adopting Davie].”

Madonna dissed Angelina a while ago by saying she could have done all the charity Angelina does, but that doesn’t actually help! She said to Time “Look, I could have joined the U.N. and become an ambassador and visited various countries and just kind of showed up and smiled and looked concerned. But that’s not getting to the root of the problem.”

It looks like Angelina is answering her in her own way, by saying people shouldn’t diss Madonna for snatching a baby, but of course she would never do such a thing because that’s wrong.

Angelina’s people issued a statement about the article implying that she gave more compliments to Madonna in the interview that weren’t published. She also said she really loved Brad and that after she met him her life “seemed more harmonious.”

    Hey Angelina, you’d do better to shut up about being on the right side of the law where adoptions are concerned.

    The agency who helped you with Maddox’s adoption has a long history of prying kids away from dirt-poor, vunerable parents.

    Yes, I know it’s four pages. Read it anyway.
    Then shut up about other people’s business.

  2. Haney says:

    Yeah, and doing someone’s husband, bad marriage or not, is not illegal probably. So she did nothing wrong.
    Oh yeah I forgot, nothing happened.

    Good Grief, if Brad was happy he wouldn’t have left Jennifer. “HELLO!” If he loved JA he would still be with her – IT WAS OVER!!!! Pick on Julia Roberts if you want to pick on some one. She actually wore a t-shirt dissing Danny’s wife in PUBLIC! Madonna took a child from a living parent. Why didn’t she just give the father money and help him out or bring them both to America. Instead she took a child from his father. Are you people that blind. Think Think Think before you speak.

  4. julie says:

    Georgiacajun, I MUST know more about this Julia Roberts T-shirt thing. Do tell!!

  5. ertarox says:

    Haney is right, totally.

    Basically Angelina and Madonna BOTH suck nowadays, sorry. Madonna is right that Angelina just shows up and takes photos of herself spending 10 minutes with some orphans. Brad and Angelina make more money than these entire countries do, but what are they REALLY doing? They are fucking stingy.

    and Angelina’s right: Madonna sucks for what she did.

  6. frewtloop says:

    Julie – Julia Roberts stole her current husband away from his fairly newish, young and attractive wife Vera and then had the nerve to wear a t-shirt in public that had the [hand written] words on it ‘A low Vera’. A very witty and mature pun on the herb aloe vera. Shes an absolute fucking bag in my book.

  7. MaiGirl says:

    I’m glad Julia Roberts and her whoritude was brought up. I saw the t-shirt and thought that even if Vera had issues, which any woman would when competing for her husband, that shirt was a low and tacky blow. She can’t hide from me behind the America’s Sweetheart tag. Her and her test-tube twins can suck it.

  8. Diva says:

    Brad and Angelina spend hours, sometimes days with the children they visit, and millions of dollars in charity.

  9. kellie says:

    Angelina has give ONE THIRD of her income to charity. Can anyone on this board say that? I can’t. That is one hell of a lot of money! No man leaves a wife he wants to be with. JA is a self centered ass. He is clearly happy now and for some reason that kills the JA fans. I adopted my daughter and I think everything that Angelina said makes perfect sense.

  10. jeb says:

    I was just thinking that same thing, Kellie. Like her or not, Angelina gives a whopping percentage of her wealth to charity. I respect her for that when the rest of Hollywood lives in such extreme excess (any idea what the TomKat wedding money could have done for a good cause?).

  11. frewtloop says:

    I remember in an interview once with an Australian 60 minutes reporter when Princess Dianna was still alive, Madge was asked what was it like being the second most famous and photographed female in the world. She was completely stumped and replied: “who’s the first?”

    Point being – the woman is a meglomaniac and probably can’t stand the fact that that someone has stolen her title. I think the fact that she’s still performing at her age is testament to this. She looks ridiculous in that photo.

    Point well taken about Julia, but please don’t tell me you believe men only cheat when they’re ‘unhappy’. Brad’s a douchebag.

    . Her and her test-tube twins can suck it.

    Hey, hey, hey now… let’s leave the kids out of it. They can’t help who they were born to.

  14. kylie says:

    …And keeps 2/3 for herself to live an incredibly comfortable lifestyle. I despise stars who act like they are god’s gift to the poor. She doesn’t impress me in the least.

  15. Toubrouk says:

    Wow, two showbiz royalties engaged in proxy cat-fight. This is quite a first! ;)

  16. luigi says:

    Isn’t it funny how stars who donate their time and money to charity are criticised for being phoneys/not doing enough, while other stars are left alone?

  17. NYSailorScout says:

    At least Madonna didn’t have to STEAL her husband.

  18. georgiacajun says:

    No, I guess Madonna didn’t steal her husband, she got pregnant to keep him and force him into marriage. How do you steal a person from someone else, please do tell. Cause I’d like to steal me a man or two.

    “I remember in an interview once with an Australian 60 minutes reporter when Princess Dianna was still alive, Madge was asked what was it like being the second most famous and photographed female in the world. She was completely stumped and replied: “who’s the first?”" ROTFLMAO! This is sooo Madonna. She’s an egomaniac and that’s why she picks on Angelina. I bet it burns her to see that Brangelina gets so much attention, much more than poor old Madge. I’m not going to trash her for adopting David, but PLEASE, why did she have to adopt a child from a) living parent and b) country with no legal adoption? Doesn’t she have someone to research those things for her? Were there no other kids to adopt? I’m afraid the press will never leave her alone, bringing the child’s father into the picture whenever they need a Madonna headline.. but she’s created the situation herself so I can’t feel that sorry for her.
    As to Julia Roberts–THANK YOU GUYS for noticing. I used to bring it up on various boards at the peak of Brangelina scandal and they all managed to ignore it. AS you said, America’s Sweetheart can do no wrong, not even when she blatantly mocked her boyfriend’s wife in an attempt to force a divorce. I found her actions back then to be appalling but nobody was really saying anything negative about her. Or look at Claire Danes/Britney Spears who went after men with PREGNANTS girlfriends.. None of them got much attention whereas Jolie (who didn’t “steal” a man from a functioning relationship with a child in the picture) got shit for being with Brad. As I said before, it’s not about morality, it’s about popularity.

    Kiddies ‘poor old Madge’ was the biggest star in the world when you were pooing into your diaper

  21. Haney says:

    You only steal a husband who wants exactly that. That does not mean it’s anywhere near a decent thing to do.
    Saint Angelina my oh my.

  22. countrybabe says:

    Angelina is the first celebrity now that I’ve heard the UN using, after that Nic, her friend. Why would they want Madonna. Stealing one baby is getting at the root cause. Yeah right. She didn’t know what else to say. Angelina adopted first. Making Madge look like a copycat.

  23. MaiGirl says:

    My point, Action, is not that I blame the children, but that I’m tired of Julia parading her spawn around(who do, like it or not, resemble Children of the Corn)as if they erase her dirty deeds. Sure, she’s Mother of the Year. Just ask Vera.

  24. Truest says:

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are good people who donate their time and money to help poor people. Angelina’s poor mother is dying from cancer and she’s doing charity work, running herslef ragged. I think that goes far beyond posing for ten minutes as Madge has said. Madonna is pissed because she tought she was going to be respected like angelina for adoption, and it backfired on her, because she supposedly fell in love with little david, but there were all these strings attached. And people don’t adore Madonna for anything but her performance abilities and talent, because she is cut throat acting and has been quite nasty and arrogant. Angelina is quite the oposite. If Madonna truly had the boys best interests at heart, which I think she does to a certain extent, she wouldn’t have taken a low pot shot at angie to the press, because it wouldn’t have mattered to her what people said if she was truly into the child 100 percent. She wants people to follow Kaballah and her ways of so called new morality, yet she openly let the cat out of the bag and showed her resentment to Angelina. Pretty pathetic, and I am a huge fan of madonna by the way. I didn’t like what she said at all about angelina.
    She is also causing strife within her marriage, for her husband is pals with brad pitt. Madonna rocks, but it is all about her. Angelina cares, when she cries its real tears, not tears for herself.

  25. Truest Again says:

    I also want to add that I think Madonna has goodness in her heart too, but her motives or a little misguided at times, regardless. At least she is making a difference, though she could stand to put a little more money to charities instead of supposedly “raising” 3 or so million for her orphan center, she could whip out a personal check alone. 31 million for a kaballah center , and angie gives 1/3 of her salary, with no strings attached? Makes you think, or wonder what other people are thinking huh Madonna?

  26. Domidroid says:

    Does not caring about ones self make them a “good person”? if so, why? other people just want you to hate yourself, like they do, what good can only caring about them bring?

  27. Domidroid says:

    I’ll never give a cent to Charity, and I’ll never feel guilty about it either.
    Why does all this bleeding-heart-bullshit automatically = goodness? It’s just too easy! Don’t be so gullible!

  28. Truest Again says:

    I don’t think of it as being gullible, Its common sense. Maybe not bad but unfeeling self centered people wouldn’t waste their time thinking about other people, so being good doesn’t enter the picture. Your a good person if you don’t bring harm to others or try to hurt people. You can love yourself, but when one strikes out at other people that never did anything to them to make a point they step over the line…Giving to charity has nothing to do with being a good person, if meglomaniacs use it to make themselves look better, it doesn’t comes from the heart. And I think Angie and Brad are caring people. They get enough publicity just being an item. She has an oscar, she doesn’t need to do charity work to have people form opinions about her level of compassion, unlike Madonna, who I think is great, but lacks in the social, feeling skills category in regard to how she percieves and treats others. Hope this clarifies things.

  29. Truest Again says:

    And having an oscar has nothing to do with levels of compassion, obviously, I just meant that she is accomplished and doesn’t need to create hype for herself… neither does madonna, who is just a lot older than angelina and has to try to remain relevant in the pop game, though she is here to stay, regardless of her age. Loving onesels is also very important, but arrogance is a big turn off in anyone, regardless of their levels and perceptions of self worth.

  30. Truest Again says:

    Damaged people also feel the need to lash out at other people, regardless of weather they love themselves or not.
