Johnny Depp: Angelina Jolie is a “real doll”


Brad, Angelina and the kids are back in Venice after spending last week in Paris, where Angelina seemed to filming exteriors for The Tourist, always clad in the same fabulous beige-and-cream outfit. Now that they’re back in Venice – where Johnny Depp has arrived also – my guess is that most of the filming will take place there. But that’s just a guess – God knows, they could be headed to Prague or Milan or Stockholm in a week for all I know.

Anyway, Angelina looks good, Brad looks filthy, Shiloh looks like Mystery child Fax, Pax looks like a cutie, and Empress Zahara is throwing the paps her classic “shank eye”. Cute kids!


As for Depp and the Jolie rumors/tabloid nonsense, Fame Pictures did this rather epic photo montage, doing side-by-side comparisons between Depp and Pitt, Jolie and Vanessa Paradis, and even going so far as to insinuate that Depp and Jolie would naturally be attracted to each other because their partners are “rough looking”. You don’t believe me? From Fame Pictures:

All eyes are on the set of The Tourist in Paris, France, where the world’s sexiest actors Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp will collide and create a media frenzy of explosive proportions. However, it won’t just be the star power causing fireworks but the looming shadow of scandal and supposed infidelity between the pulchritudinous pair.

Despite each having wonderful partners and children, some media outlets have envisioned an inevitable love connection that started the moment the two signed on to the film. Ongoing rumors of marital strife between Angelina and Brad and Pitt’s recent rugged and ragged appearance have tabloids pushing for a catalyst for Angelina to end their relationship.

Depp has been very private about his love life to French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis but sources claim that femme fatale Jolie’s fierce sensuality will leave Depp mad with lust and ready to leave his gap-toothed gal. Fame offers a side-by-side photo comparison of the 2 couples so viewers can draw their own conclusions about whether Jolie and Depp should ditch their rougher looking partners and join together in sensual bliss.

Yikes, right? Who is writing for Fame these days, Danielle Steel?

UPDATE: CB just showed my this great Hello Magazine interview with Depp for Alice In Wonderland. CB and I were debating if it was a real interview, or if it came from a press conference, considering a few things sound similar to what Depp has already said, but I think it’s a new interview. It’s not online, it’s just the print edition, so this is just me transcribing. When Depp was asked about working with Angelina, he replies: “I’m excited about it. I’d never met her before, but when we got together to talk about the film, I found her to be a treat, a real doll. She’s serious about her work, but she also loves her man and loves her kids. I was impressed with that. The best bit about going to Venice and hanging out with Brad and Angelina is that I’ll get to be photographed by the paparazzi, which hasn’t been happening enough to me lately!”

  1. Hahaha that is some creative write-up. You could be right about Danielle Steel. Haha

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    ha! when I first read the headline, I thought you meant that Depp was referring to Jolie as a Real Doll, as in, the sexual toys that they make that look like real women.

    and DAMN, Depp looks good in those pics! Now, Johnny, just drop your support for Polanski and you’ll be back in my good graces.

  3. Icecat says:

    Just silly!

    I hope they have a sense of humor about this and PUNK us all. Imagine if they faked some sort of romance. We’d eat it up….

  4. mslewis says:

    Never heard of Fame Pictures but their writer is quite creative!! The more ridiculous these stories are the more we know they are lying.

  5. Maritza says:

    Is Vanessa really wearing patches on her pants? Anyway, there won’t be no hanky panky with Angelina and Johnny, they both love their partners. Tabloids only wish it were true to have juicy gossip to sell.

  6. DD says:

    I know I keep saying this but Shiloh and Zahara are too cute, every picture. I like Angelina with bangs, reminds me of how amazing she looked around the time she was filming taking lives.

  7. Lean says:

    For me she look just like Steven Tyler with those sunglasses

  8. Tess says:

    For comic relief, scroll down on the Celebrity Cosmetic Surgery blog to see a picture of La Jolie with hair swept back, revealing what the doctor concludes may be her only beauty flaw: gills.

    Yes, gills!!!!

  9. John says:

    Angie and the kids look wonderful as usual….looking forward to the Tourist for the sizzling chemistry between Angie and Depp

  10. ligeia says:

    i like that side by side comparison picture of vanessa in her sweats looking like she just woke up and going to the store for something vs angie all done up for some event and having make up artists and stylists work on her looks for a good hour or two. totally fair comparison there …..

  11. matt says:

    I know what you you mean Ligeia but I think even with Vanessa looking her best she still comes nowhere close to Angelina. IMO

  12. meme says:

    gee, is it possible that a woman’s looks is NOT the end all and be all for johnny depp? just because skankolina is beautiful doesn’t mean every man wants her. jeesh. i’m so sick of this bitch.

  13. ien says:

    how in the world is vanessa paradis “rough looking”?? she’s gorgeous, as is brad (minus that nast beard) …all four are gorgeous and seemingly happy… johnny + angie is not gonna happen.

  14. flourpot says:

    I like Brad’s beard. Incoming flames in 3… 2…

  15. ligeia says:

    well matt, i would need to see a recent pic of angie with no make up and her hair pulled back wearing sweats to make that judgment. you have no idea what couple hours with good make up artists can do to ones looks.

  16. Mary says:

    I think both Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt clean up real well. Both have their ‘rough-looking’ moments. Doesn’t anyone remember any of the recent pictures of Johnny with his hair a mess, and his clothing like something a blind pre-schooler would put on?

  17. Lia says:

    “She is a doll”. Thats exactly what Brad said 3-4 yrs ago.

  18. princess pea says:

    You know, one could write a story for Star or Life & Style along the lines of Brad’s increasingly unkempt appearance is actually an attempt to be more like Depp, in order to win back Angie’s love. Brad is insecure about the eclectic, artistic Depp spending long hours on set with his lady and is trying to show her how unsuperficial he is, too.
    They would run a bunch of photos of Brad back when he was a golden-haired pretty boy and some nice recycled “quotes” from various sources about his vanity plus some about Angie’s down-to-earth nature. This could easily be a 6-page spread… maybe I should call them.

    It’s just as crazy as the crap they will run with, I’m sure. And I’ve already done all the work for them.

  19. meme says:

    shiloh has mangie’s birth nose LOL

  20. SamSam says:

    Haven’t posted in these recent threads about Jolie and Depp, just popping in to say them working together is like a wet dream come true and the only thing that could make it better is Depp playing a vampire, but not the bedazzled species.

  21. Raven says:

    If that is an exact quote, I call BS. Depp is always much wittier than that even if it is exactly how he feels. Just about everyone who has worked with Jolie likes her, including the crew. She’s always prepared and doesn’t act like a diva. I think Depp is pretty much the same way. When the 2 top stars are this easy to deal with and prepared, it sets the mood for the whole shoot.

  22. skibunny says:

    I just finished watching Public Enemy and Depp is an amazing actor and so good looking. I wish there was someone else working with him in the Tourist as I dont find Angelina Jolie believable. She and Brad Pitt are so over rated as actors I find it hard to watch any movie they are in. If there hadnt been the scandal there was when they got together and all these children I dont think they would get the attention they do now.

  23. teri says:

    Angelina does seem really nice and from what so many people have said it must be true.

  24. Blitz says:

    Tik tok Johnny are we gonna a ton of “candid” shots of YOUR kids now that you’re among these 2 HW exploiters? I get this feeling Depp is selling out. When was the last time he was in crap tabloids, attracting crap tabloid discussions about him? Total turn-off.

  25. Roma says:

    @Blitz: I’m pretty sure he was being sarcastic about the paparazzi.

  26. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL Why does Shi have to be a pretend child? She has a hair cut, yes she looks very different but still its shi. Angelina always looks so beautiful.

    Also people seem to think that paps would have some interest in Johnny’s family just because he is famous and that really isn’t the case. First off, he is with a french woman hardly anyone has heard of and you ask a random American who is Johnny Depp dating 9 out of 10 times they don’t know, some don’t even know he has kids. Unless you are a hardcore Johnny Depp fan, you wouldn’t know. Angelina and Brad are both well known stars and both famous and I will admit they were started with a little messy scandal that happens when you break up with people who are also famous. There is gonna be a natural interest in their families. Also Angelina is public anyway. She spreads awareness of important issues. So people really shouldn’t compare Johnny’s relationship and subsequent pap status to Brad and Angie. He dress like an odd ball, he frankly is only in hot in movies. He can’t even be attractive on the redcarpet, I can’t imagine there is much demand for pics of him or his lovely but virtually unknown french girlfriend and their offspring.

  27. C'est la vie says:

    Vanessa is not Hollywood gorgeous like Jolie, but that doesn’t make her a less lovable person. There are many extremely beautiful people who are ugly on the inside. Beauty is as beauty does.

  28. Blitz says:

    For heaven’s sake we don’t see Brangelina’s kids when they don’t want us to. It’s obvious- the twins weren’t photographed for something like a year. We see them a lot bc they want us to, they’re exploiters. Depp should be working with the likes of Emily Watson, Christian Bale (in a film with more than one scene together), Oldman, Streep, Theron, Blanchett, DeNiro… the cool, uber-talented people. Not Brangelina. It’s cheapening him.

  29. nnn says:

    Vanessa is very pretty though in the quirkie side with a juvenile tiny body but really her laid back clothes are too homely looking and when she isn’t in a professional representation, she always looked neglected, always.

    From her hair which seems to never be brushed when not tied, to her clothes to her skin that seems dry and resemble the one of her heavy smoker.

    I don’t understand. Since she got with Johnny the homely hippie has taken over while she used to dress hippie chic and always had at least her hair nicely done.

    On another note i see more and more pictures of their two children since they live in the US on a more permanent basis. The boy looks exactly like Vanessa and the girl is the spitty image of her father.

  30. Cheyenne says:

    meme: just because skankolina is beautiful doesn’t mean every man wants her. jeesh. i’m so sick of this bitch.

    You’re so sick of her that you had to click on this thread?

  31. nnn says:

    Thank God, Johnny doesn’t need advice from people in the iInternet. He is the one who decided to enter the “Tourist” cast AFTER Jolie was already in and because she was casted.

    He knows better how to lead his life, professional wise included.

  32. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL Blitz he isn’t working with Brad. He is working Angelina…who Btw has an Academy Award…while the amazing Johnny Depp still doesn’t, so I gotta say Angelina is pretty darn talented, always has been always will be. Johnny Depp signed on to that film because he knew that, well actually he signed on because he liked the original and if he didn’t think he could do the original justice and that cast wouldn’t do it justice he wouldn’t have done it. Exploiters is a tad harsh and so not true. The tend to keep the youngest children out less, same as they did with shi when she was a baby. They love their kids.

  33. whateva says:

    … i just realized i have nothing nice to say (!) signing off! ha-ha-ha!!!

  34. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow…I see hypocrisy is still a foreign concept for some people.

  35. DK88 says:

    They’re turning shiloh into a boy.

  36. Cheyenne says:

    How can a haircut turn a girl into a boy?

  37. katerina says:

    I find the constant negative comments hysterical. Always the same people, always the same negativity. It SPEAKS volumes about these people’s sad existence more so than some silly celebs none of y’all know. When y’all going to do something better with yourselves besides bitch about Brad and Angelina?

  38. The Queen Bee says:

    I’ve noticed when there is something positive written about the JPs there are far less comments. When something negative is written all of a sudden people just come pouring out of the woodwork.

  39. DK88 says:

    It’s the haircut, the clothes – especially the clothes. Be honest, if you didn’t know who she was, you would think it was a boy!

  40. princess pea says:

    DK88, take your gender prejudice out on someone else. When I was a little girl, I had short hair because I hated having it brushed and fought with my mother all the time about it. My mother gave me a choice and I took it. I also hated to wear dresses, because then I couldn’t play with my brothers. I’m not gay, I didn’t magically grow a penis, and I now have long hair and wear skirts regularly. Chill the heck out.

    Fun fact: Until the 50’s, pink was considered a boy’s color… And I quote: “There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” [Ladies Home Journal, June, 1918]

  41. Cheyenne says:

    GMAFB. Nobody’s gender identity and sexual orientation is set in stone at the ripe old age of three and a half. So she wears boys clothes, so what? When she is 13 she will probably be raiding Angie’s closet.

  42. Bek says:

    I have to admit I’m not excited about the pairing of these two. I think Johnny should stick to his eccentric roles, as they usually earn him critical acclaim, and let somebody else do the cliche action films. (Not to say that “public enemies” wasn’t an action film, but with a cast like that? WOW.) I know I’ll attract LOADS of hatred from obsessed fans, but Jolie tends to make the same types of films over and over and over and over and over again. Even when she’s in a drama, she just pouts and twists her face and screetches at the top of her voice. It gets old. The only show I’ve liked with her in it was A Mighty Heart, which, even then, had it’s embarrassing moments…

  43. Michelle says:

    You cannot “turn someone into a boy” short of an operation. Even then, some people *cough chaz bono haters* will still disagree. Find something else in your depressing life to obsess over and let the 3 year-old dress as she wants.

  44. M says:

    why did they use a Johnny Depp picture that is at least 10 years old?

  45. truthSF says:


    ….When she is 13 she will probably be raiding Angie’s closet.


    More like raiding Empress Zee’s closet, considering she will be the fashionista in that family. Besides, @13, her mom’s clothes might be considered too old fashion for her, lol.

  46. Bored says:

    ‘Bek’ talk about embarrasing moments you’re have one one right here. Quote “same types of films over and over and over and over and over again” unquote. Your examples being…..Duoh….Lets compare A Mighty Heart with Wanted ……oh yeah very similar….Alexander with ummmm Changeling or maybe compare The Good Shepard with Tomb Raider….. God Im even boring myself, what was that Bek, all her films are the same!. Your opinion is as dumb as your obssesive hatred of Mz Jolie ….grow up….!

  47. mslewis says:

    Bek, Johnny knew who he would be working with in this movie. He made the decision to work with Angelina. Nobody made him do it. Why are you complaining about what roles he takes? Also, this is not an “action” movie, per se. It is a movie about a woman who uses a man to her advantage. Sounds more romantic than action. Maybe we should both wait until it comes out before deciding to like or dislike it.

  48. samm22 says:

    ^^#44. That picture of Johnny Depp is not 10 years old!. That was taken last March on the set of The Rum Diary movie.

  49. Blitz says:

    Doesn’t matter if he won an award or not. If you ask most people who’s on the short list of best actors Depp makes the cut, along with the others I mentioned, Brangelina doesn’t.

    It’s not WE who are obsessed w the kids, it’s THEY who are deliberately picking the image for them. It’s obvious. Children, even girls that are NOT gurly-girls don’t dress stylishly, consistently butch. They’re picking clothes like that bc they ARE image obsessed. They think they’re being cool when in fact they’re trivializing their own kids. We shouldn’t be that aware of them, full stop.

    And yeah Bek, glad Depp is making big money on franchises/action flicks but it would be great to see him in more challenging roles again. And Christian. Emily (Breaking The Waves anyone? That should have garnered her the big statue) and Gary (who was brilliant as Sid) as well.

  50. brandy says:

    I personally hope Angelina gets it together with Johnny Depp because they have much more in common.
    They’re both Gemini;they both love the same kind of unusual products like I Conjure Candles and Snake Jewellery, they both like Gothic type things, him buying gothic houses, she carrying vials of blood and loving knives, they both love France. I just think they’d make the best Celeb Couple ever!

  51. Michelle says:

    Dear Blitz,
    You clearly ARE obsessed with this family, so don’t even bother. If Angelina were dressing Shiloh in dresses and heels ala Suri Cruise, you’d probably be screaming at this second about how she’s sexualizing her child at an early age blah blah blah traumatizing childhood blah blah blah whore cakes.

    Jennifer Garner dresses in jeans and a hoodie all the time, golly gee do you thunk she might be a LESBIAN TOO?!? Do you also spend your spare time throwing rocks at male ballerinas? MYOFB.

  52. Guest says:

    I thought that I should let you guys know – there has been a huge earthquake in Chile. I realize that mostly you guys don’t know what is happening worldwide unless Angie goes there. But I know how concerned everyone was here about Haiti – so I thought you should know. i don’t think that anyone knows about this since Angie hasn’t gone there. Without Angie bringing awareness who knows what is going on in the world?

  53. Cheyenne says:

    brandy: I personally hope Angelina gets it together with Johnny Depp because they have much more in common.

    So you want to see two families break up? With fans like you, who needs enemies?

  54. DK88 says:

    Gender prejudice? Something else in my depressing life to obsess over?? I thought this site was pretty fun and cool but I realize the posters on this board are just angry negative people who spend too much time on the internet. I don’t get how my harmless humorous comment of how they’re making shiloh look like a boy can get such rude angry responses. Which is a fact, she does look like a boy, and by the same token I would also comment that suri’s parents dress her up way too girlie – it is just making comments and observations on celebrities and people in the spotlight which I thought is what this site was for. I didn’t expect rude personal attacks in return!! I love celebrity gossip, it is my only hobby and my way to relax and take breaks throughout the day, but I honestly feel a bit dirty having spent too much time in a place with readers like this.

  55. isabelle says:

    What a load of rubbish.

  56. Kim says:

    Blitz, Besides the pic w/ haircut she has never been dressed stylishly. Her clothes rarely match. She wears Men’s ties, soccer cleats, carry swords and wear odd looking hats. How is this dressing stylishly? 90% of the time Shiloh is dressed in clothes that look like a toddler threw them together because a toddler did throw the clothes together. The kids wear each other clothes and have been for years. Shiloh was just wearing one of Pax’s Blazers. She has worn Zahara’s sweater.They all have worn Maddox’s hand me downs. Oh yeah its all part of the grande scheme Brad and Angie are perpetuating on the public . Yeah ,I get it. GMAFB

  57. Bek says:

    Action roles or dramas; same game face. A little old, is all I’m saying. But I don’t know why I bother. Common sense is lost on this site. That’s half the fun of it!

  58. yeah, ok says:

    “Common sense is lost on this site”? Why do the Brad/Angie dissers think they are the ONLY ones who are intelligent? Arrogant much?

  59. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Bek, I hear what you’re saying.

    my opinion is that she’s got TWO modes…”sexy badass/crazy chick” and “wronged woman”.

    I think she does a lot better when she sticks to her strength, which is the sexy badass/crazy chick role. same way a lot of other actors stick to the romcom or the action flick. if it works for you, there is NOTHING wrong with sticking to that genre.

    I think the movies where Jolie strays from that (Changeling, A Mighty Heart) are the ones were she doesn’t do well. I wouldn’t call her a crappy actress, but she’s surely not a strong, versatile one. I know lots of people will disagree (SHOCKER!) but that’s my opinion of her abilities and I know other people think differently. And, truth be told, IMO, there are VERY few actresses who can really do a good job across all genres.

    oh, and intelligence and common sense do NOT always go hand in hand. nor do intelligence and objectivity.

  60. Blitz says:

    Michelle you’re missing the salient point. First off, the reason people aren’t discussing how TomKat props Suri up is because this isn’t a TomKat thread. In fact there are a myriad of issues discussed chapter and verse continuously on those two. However in both cases the issues with the kids are symptoms of other things. It’s not about child’s preference, but rather the parents need to fabricate image.

  61. Kim says:

    So what is the image they are fabricating for Zahara,Pax and Maddox.Since according to you the kids don’t choose their own clothes. Brad and Angie force them to wear these clothes.Since Shiloh is “stylishly butch” What is Zahara?

  62. Bek says:

    @ yeah, ok: I made said statements (“common sense…”) not because I believe there are no intelligent people who are obsessed with Brangie, but because a mere opinion about Brangie’s acting ability (or any other matter concerning them) will be taken to the extreme (on both sides), and translated into “hatred” or a perception that I’m fat or jealous. Both being ridiculous assumptions. In your case, you assumed my comments meant I feel I’m more intelligent. Wrong. And you assume I’m a “disser” because I don’t like her acting. Again, wrong. Common sense being what it is, I think some people on this site are very much blinded by either an obsession with Brangie or a strong dislike of them, and it compels them (go figure) to attack anybody they perceive as “hating” or “drooling”. I try to stay neutral where I can, but anything said about them is scrutinized/attacked here, so there’s little sense in treading lightly! Sorry to have offended you. I don’t know anything about your level of intelligence, and you know nothing about mine. I’m entitled to think whatever I want about them, as are you. Let’s leave it at that.

  63. Lilly says:

    Okay, no hatred intended, just my 2 cents. Couples have been breakin up since the human being was created, it isn’t going to change, even if you’re with someone for over 30 or 40 years.. I think both are great actors but I also know they are adults and know what they do better than anyone else, just let me say that in a way it is breaking two families (Not saying its going to happen), but in another have you ever thought is better for the childs, if their parents don’t have a good relationship anymore, to break up? I know that, I have lived this situation as a child! We don’t know how their lifes are, even if they are together for a picture and seem happy, come on, we are not them and we can’t know, not even if we were close enough of them.. And again, as much as you don’t accept, promises never last forever.

  64. Freya says:

    I agree with poster # 26, who wrote:

    “people really shouldn’t compare Johnny’s relationship and subsequent pap status to Brad and Angie. He dress like an odd ball, he frankly is only hot in movies. He can’t even be attractive on the redcarpet, I can’t imagine there is much demand for pics of him or his lovely but virtually unknown french girlfriend and their offspring.”

  65. Freya says:

    i’m so sick of this bitch.

    You’re so sick of her that you had to click on this thread?
    Yes, that’s how sick of Angelina she is! lol

  66. Freya says:


    Intelligence, common sense AND objectivity can certainly go hand in hand. Just leave emotion out.

  67. noname says:

    how long do they stay in venice?

  68. Mel says:

    Leave the poor guy alone, let him live a normal life.Yes his job is diffarent, espesaly 4 his kids sake. Let the grow up happy, which poor Johnny,and his beautiful Vanessa do try so hard to let them grow into such nice perant as thay have, they couldn’t go to disneyland without a swam of people. Think about his poor children. Venessa, its hard enough being a mum also having the strenth to stay so overwehmedly in love. Team work all the way. I’m not well in meny ways and have been told i would not live much longer, i just want you to know that i won’t be there to see you and your family grow even more beautiful than it is. im about to be 21 and illnesses seem to have changed for the worse and cannot get better. But carry on you 2. caring thoughts for you. i hope everything does get easier.

    Caring thought to you and all extended family.


  69. Sukie says:

    Hollywood needs to get a life, Depp is too good for Jolie. He is a real down-to-earth guy that don’t need negative media in lis life. Why don’t they show them all dressed down or dressed up. Depp would still look a lot better than Jolie and Pitt together. And besides Jolie like her men to like dirty like they haven’t bathe/ showered in a few weeks!!!

    This is just an observation people, but open your eyes and wake up.

  70. Taking a positive stance: Love is blind and does not put a price on attire, bank accounts, smell, taste or anything other than love. If this is too “real” for you then may I suggest you have an opportunity to learn what “love” means…I think all these couples are fantastic actors and parents because they have learned what love is.
