Angelina Jolie loves horses so much, she makes purses out of them


This is funny/weird story. It originated at Women’s Wear Daily – apparently, Angelina Jolie’s stylist got her a pretty Akris horsehair bag, and before Angelina would deign to use it, she had her stylist check with the company to make sure the horses were being treated ethically. She was told that her bag is made of trimmed horse hair, not skinned or anything. Oh, and Akris makes purses made out of horse tails too! Ugh.

Before Angelina Jolie took her new Akris ecru horsehair handbag out on the town, her stylist called the Swiss-based luxury brand asking about the animals’ treatment.

“We told her horses get haircuts just like we do,” Akris designer Albert Kriemler said of the bag, which is made with hair from horse tails.

Apparently that answer was good enough for Jolie, who was recently spotted carrying a larger version of the bag, which retails for just less than $5,000.

So, Angelina loves horses. But she still wears leather. But not fur! So, a net animal rights plus, I suppose. Sigh… you know what this old photos (circa 2001) remind me of? When Angelina was really cool. Dude, remember when Angie used to make out with horses? That bitch changed!


HuffPo has a photo of the purse – it’s pretty awesome, but I wouldn’t pay $5000 for it. Angelina has this is in white:

    What is she trying to get that horse to do to her titays????? Oh wowza…. she is sch a freak.

    Thanks for one more (2 more akshully if we include willful ignorance of actual animal cruelty matters) reason to distrust and dislike this actress.

  2. ThunderC*nt says:

    Just stop!

  3. city says:

    umm, gross. she did a photo shoot when she let horses nuzzle her naked breasts? YUCK!

  4. Meekohh says:

    Say what you want about her and Brad but you have to give it to the woman; shes got sex appeal! Maybe a tad on the thin side for my liking but if I looked like her I would be out there topless with every damned farm animal I could find! /sigh… to be the beautiful bunch.

  5. Cheyenne says:

    You know it’s a slow day in CB-land when you have to post nine-year-old photos.

  6. searching4grace says:

    Look! Angelina when she had muscle in her arms and actual hips! I think she looks really pretty in these pictures. A little weird with the horse thing, but that was the Angelina of old. Beautiful…and a little weird!

  7. Jackson says:

    I don’t get the fuss – she did the right thing by checking on it first. It’s a good thing, IMO.

  8. Melanie says:

    This is a tad more risque than too short of skirt or a bottom fondle. Ha,HA,HA! G-R-O-S-S! With a BEAST no less!

  9. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I haven’t see her with a bag like that but of course Angelina cares about animals and wants to makes sure they weren’t harmed. Then she would be on PETA’s sh*t list.

    Also I adore all of Angelina’s photo shoots past and present.

    This one was shot by the legendary David La Chappelle. I do so much love his work. It was perfect for Angie at the time this was taken…really captured her wild child at the time IMO. 😀

  10. meme says:

    yeah, acting sexual with animals sure does make one a ‘wild child’ – more like a sicko if you ask me.

  11. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Well meme it was David La Chappelle’s vision, the man is a little weird but I hate boring and he most certainly is not. Its not like she actually did anything with the horse it was just a shock and awe photo shoot as is his specialty. Its no big deal…I love it.

  12. Obvious says:

    i would love one of those bags. When i had to put my horse down last year I cut a portion oh her tail and made a bracelet out of it.

    I think it’s a cool idea, I just hope they don’t cut the tail to the bone, and that they have tail bags for the horses to at least keep the flies away,

  13. cara says:

    nasty,she looks like she is horny for her horse..barf

  14. lena says:

    lol @ cheyenne…reeks of desperation doesn’t it?

  15. snowball says:

    What’s next, her playing with a dog, yelling, “Red Rocket, Red Rocket!”

    Nice pictures with a horse (except for the boob sucking one), she’s pretty, handbag is ugly but not fugly with hair hanging down and all fringy, like something La Lohan would wear.

    She really went through a weird phase. Maybe she really is St. Angie now, but you have to wonder what happened to the horse tit sucking, blood vial wearing, brother french-kissing woman.

  16. Diva says:

    Angelina will never live these pictures down, no matter how young she was when they were taken or how much she matures.

    LaChapelle, on the other hand, gets a pass for conceptualizing these, and many, many other equally “disturbing” photo shoots.

    I don’t honestly see what’s so pornographic about these, anyway. So she put a sugar cube between her tits… I’m from Montana, I know plenty of girls who stuck crap down their shirts for their horses to “find”.

  17. Crash2GO2 says:

    Wow, she didn’t used to look half bad – not such a block head when her body was normal sized. Except she still didn’t have a neck. And look at all that hair! And she used to have a normal sized forehead!

    So will the real Angie please stand up? LOL

  18. meme says:

    sorry, but letting a horse nuzzle your tatas is not normal and i’m not shocked and certainly not awed.

  19. Wow says:

    They probably concocted this story and put it out there in the event PETA decided to rake her over the coals for it.

  20. jane says:

    Gross tats. Nasty pix altogether.

  21. Kaiser says:

    I didn’t realize these old photos would freak people out so much! I just read the story and thought “Oh, I should use those old horse photos!” It’s not like she’s Katherine the Great or anything.

    Seriously, she and the horse are just playing. They’re “just friends”. The horse just needed a shoulder to cry on when his marriage fell apart. They’re just costars!

  22. snowball says:

    You just know the horse was cheating on her with a chick who was all tattooed…wait a minute. Was this horse married?

    Does the Insider know about this?

  23. fizXgirl314 says:

    This is like a whole other level of ew…

  24. princess pea says:

    The old photos are a striking reminder that she used to have some meat on those bones. And actual breasts. Wow.

    She really has gotten very thin since then, that’s certain. Since Brad, I guess… what does that say about him, I wonder.

  25. Harper says:

    BWAHAHAHA! Thank you Kaiser, this is classic.

  26. Melanie says:

    Kaiser! I for one am shocked! LOLOL. You are great! Co-stars!

  27. Maritza says:

    That is one ugly purse, $5,000? Jesus, what a waste of money! Those were her Billy Bob crazy wild days, boy I bet he misses that! Does she still have that horrible X tattoo?

  28. Lilias says:

    Er, Cheyenne, the post is about horse hair bags and she’s posing with a horse.

    Trying to forget her gross past?

  29. Lilias says:

    “I don’t honestly see what’s so pornographic about these, anyway.”

    Perhaps the fact that her tatas are hanging out completely and a horse has it’s mouth on them?

    David LaChappelle is a weirdo who comes up with weirdo photoshoots. The women don’t HAVE to do them. Angelina chose to participate in what is essentially bestiality.

    And your friends on the farm are just as gross. Just because a lot of people do something, does not mean it’s ok.

  30. Sigh. says:

    The horse does look like “Just doing my job ma’am,” totally phoning it in. So we can’t say she gets involved with ALL of her co-stars.
    I’ve seen these before, so I’m just taken aback at how healthy she looks. She was thin, but still…

  31. sosorrry says:

    Don’t understand the concept of this pictures the horse is clearly in her tits. Wild child/horse? God. She always seems like she tries to hard. Anyway I liked her more before she got her halo

  32. hmmm says:

    Snowball, nah, madonna already did that in her book called SEX. in the book there is a picture where it looks like a dog is licking her butt.

  33. N.D. says:

    To me she looks as thin as always in these pics. It’s just in the second one her upper arm is pressed tightly to her breast so it looks a bit wider, while in the first pic where it isn’t pressed to her body you can see that her tatooed upper arm was just as thin back then as it is now.

    I think her body looked best in Gia. After that she were always a bit too thin for my liking. Not ugly, just not breathtakingly beautiful. But she had her face and her charisma to offset that.

    Forgot to add! Bravo Keiser! That’s a good one!

  34. Harper says:

    One thing we can say about Angelina – she doesn’t discriminate. Men, women, siblings, animals (single or married)……Haha, forgot about co-stars. Everyone gets an equal opportunity. 🙂

  35. anon says:

    god back when she was sexy, weird and actually had an awesome figure not just bones drapped in skin

  36. Bek says:

    There was a lot of speculation going around the internet a few years back (or was it only a year?) that these weird pics existed of Angie and a horse. I thought it was speculation, and never bothered to google it. No doubt now.

  37. anon says:

    ok lol @ everyone who thinks this is like bestiality. she’s not having sex with a horse. it’s not like she has a private stable where she goes to get off by horses licking her jiggly parts. it’s a photoshoot, it’s not an actual sex act!!

  38. KIM says:

    I have a question while checking your archives you have dozens of pics of Angelina with her kids yet when you search other celeb moms like Reese, Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stefani, Kate Winslet,Michelle Williams, Madonna to name a few. There are rarely pics of their kids despite there are far more pics of these kids on sites like celebritybabyblog and celebritybabyscoop. Why is that? It gives the impression that Brad and Angie’s kids are photographed a lot more than they are. There are 4 times as many pis of the Rosedale kids and three times more of Violet Affleck in the archives of bsby blogs and other gossip sites

  39. stinabelle says:

    Lol, you guys are ridiculous. It’s a photo shoot. The horse’s nose is on her boobs. I don’t think this is “essentially bestiality.” The horse’s top lip is touching her boob, ffs.

    Good lord, people.

  40. hmmm says:

    Bek, it’s not a hidden secret. I think they were taken for Rolling Stone Magazine. I remember reading that article and thinking WTH? she was crazy back then, haha! I’m sure some people were hoping she was really sexing up a horse or at least having the horse suck her nipple LoLoL

  41. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL You guys are funny. Lilias you should spend some hours on the internet looking at videos of people who actually practice bestiality…and then come can use that term again with a straight face. Its pretty hard to photograph animals, that pose lasted no more than few seconds I bet, which just shows David’s skill as a photographer. LOL There were some other pics with the horse that the closed minded wouldn’t have misconstrued to such a degree where Angie is just posing with the horse, but these are the most “controversial” shots I guess.

    I am not gonna have a back and forth with people over an old photoshoot which is avant garde and totally amazing. Would Angie pose like that now? No but is she embarrassed by the pictures? NO. Should she be? NO. Is it anyone’s fault some people are closed minded to genius? NO LOL

  42. Beth says:

    I don’t know why this is a story. It’s not really interesting. I have to laugh at the comments that say she was a lot heavier in these photos than now. I don’t see much difference in weight.

    As for baby pictures, this site doesn’t post a lot of candid photos except for when it comes to Brad and Angelina. This site mostly reports gossip but other sites like Popsugar and X17 post a lot of candids.

  43. Cinderella says:

    For a moment I thought we were in Tijuana.

  44. Madelyn Rose says:

    Disgusting! It rankles me that Brad and Angie sue the NOTW for publishing a story that they are breaking up (and all the commenters lamented, but what if the children should see it), yet she is okay with pictures on the internet (easily google-able by her children) where a horse is sucking her boob! This woman is a nut job, and so are her defenders. BTW, what ever did happen to that lawsuit? Why don’t we hear anything about it??? Hmm…..

  45. Brookers says:

    Kaiser, you are wrong. Catherine II of Russia (called by you Katherine the Great) didn’t make out with horses. It was a rumour spread by British to spoil her reputation, which was a common practice during these times. I asked you to do a proper research before you post anything that isn’t a historical truth. By the way, I love your site

  46. Kelly says:

    Great pics, but I dunno, it seems to me that she was always trying so hard to be ‘weird’ because it got her noticed, rather than being genuinely eccentric. She just seemed far too conscious and affected for me to buy it. Which is a shame because now she’s the poster girl for weird women and doesn’t seem to have the inclination or ability to effectively counter the sexist garbage thrown at her, and stand up for freaky girls everywhere.
    She disappoints me for using weirdness as a prop and then backing off from it once she had the career security she desired. Seems fake, and expedient.

  47. brian says:

    Say what you will but she’s smoking hot and the sexiest woman out there. Move over Brad.

  48. Katyusha says:

    @ Brookers

    There was a rumor that went around saying it could’ve been one of the causes of Catherine’s death; she was trying to have sex with a horse and it fell on her and crushed her.

    We all know it was a rumor, but the reference Kaiser makes is still appropriate…she doesn’t mean it literally and didn’t claim that it was historically accurate.
    Relax, k?

  49. Diva says:

    Lilias, the horses “mouth” is between her breasts, where the sugar cube was…

    FFS, she’s not DOING anything with this animal but posing for some LaChapelle pictures.

    I knew as soon as I saw the picture in on the main page that this was going to be a shitstorm and any good will that may have been cultivated toward the woman who is now a partner and mother would go straight back down the drain.


    Don’t make something gross out of games girls play with their horses, ie finding carrots, apples, etc hidden somewhere on them, either, Lilias… YOU’RE the one seeing something sexual in all of this, so maybe you’re the one who should re-evaluate how you look at things.

  50. teri says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with her pictures. There’s been ladies riding nakkid forever on horses with their bare coothie. So the horse nudged her and the cameras rolling, and? Angelina has a past it’s no secret she lived it well and no regrets. She’s grown from it and HURT NOBODY. She used to have such a carefree spirit and that’s why so many people like her. You do eventially grow up and start a family, most just never bring up their past.

  51. teri says:

    I’m sure Melanie was just as shocked seeing jen get fisted by gerard.

  52. Emily says:

    ITA with Katyusha. Just because it was a rumour doesn’t mean Kaiser can’t make a reference to it!

    Oh, these photos make me miss the old Angelina. Remember a few years ago, when pretty much any straight chick who was asked who she’d turn gay for said Angie? Don’t think too many people would be picking her now!

  53. TG says:

    That first pic she looks like she has the body of a 12 year old boy.

  54. jane says:

    teri you’re comment was really digusting.

    These pix would be artistic if they were just a topless woman riding or hugging a horse, but the horse licking her bosom while she looks like its giving her extreme pleasure…how can anyone say they don’t have a sexual edge to them? If she was romping with a person it would be sexy, but a horse?!? Come on!

    Also, considering that there must be like a billion expensive, fine quality leather, silk, etc handbags all over the world (I think my local Nordstrom has a couple of thousand), why does anyone need a purse made out of pony hair?

    That being said, I do think she looks a lot healthier here & I don’t believe 99% of whats written about her. Don’t believe she’s a saint, don’t believe she’s evil or a nut.

  55. Alexis says:

    Whoa…you know, horses bite, and when they do, it’s very hard…I wouldn’t put a nipple near them, in all seriousness.

  56. My2Cents says:

    Far out. Anyone turning these pics into something sexual has issues of their own.

    By chance has anyone ever rode a horse topless? For shame. I have. I felt so sexy and wild doing it too!

  57. amanda says:

    This is the wild and crazy Angelina I love and miss! And, people… she doesn’t REALLY have anything going on with the horse. Get over it.

  58. Fraud St. Ahole says:

    Angelina is a lowlife wh0rebag. No surprise here – brother sucking, horse licking, costar f-king sl*t. Only the Brangeloons can’t see what a nut job she really is.

    Just like the Eminem song, “Will the really Angelina please stand up, please stand up…” Hahaha!

  59. Solveig says:

    I don’t think this is pornograohy and/or bestiality but I find those pictures quite disturbing. Probably because I expect the horse to shear off her right tit with a bite from one moment to the next… *shudders to think about it*
    As a vegetarian who tries to avoid wearing leather (shoes, accessories, etc) I just appreciate this story, if it’s true.

  60. mags says:

    yeeesh chill out, i thought i had missed something and the horse was like sucking her tittie! it’s nose it just near it!
    and… just for the record, the whole “katherine the great f***ing horses” thing was made up after her death b/c she was a) a powerful woman and immasculated many men and b) took MANY very attractive lovers. she was all “yeah who’s that hottie soldier – to my bed chamber!”
    i’m not an expert but that is what i’ve read. she was assisinated i’m pretty sure, not crushed by a horse.

    just saw this was already brought up. but i like the way i put it better, lol.

  61. Rohna says:

    *YAWN!* 9 year old photos, b****ing about Angie doing the right thing (or having her stylist do the right thing,) comments about a 10 year old event, her marriage and further myth distribution, throw in some slams about her weight and her being bi. Typical day of generating hits at Celebitchy.

  62. Ursula says:

    Her body has always been like a tree stump, I thought it had been deformed by the twins.

    Those poor kids will have to live their lives with such pictures of their mother. No wonder they are not in conventional schools, I can’t imagine the teasing they would endure.

    I feel for them when they start seeing their mother on the internet.

  63. blinditemreader says:

    She looks as though she’s trying to eat the horse in that one shot.

  64. Lilias says:

    “By chance has anyone ever rode a horse topless”

    No. Because it’s weird. Being naked around animals is weird. Having a horse try to “find” stuff in nether regions and between boobs is weird. Riding a horse with your naked vulva out there with nothing or almost nothing in-between (HELLOOO Yeast infection) is weird.

    I’m not understanding where all these animal-loving weirdos are coming from. I love horses. I like riding horses. I like brushing them and patting them and giving them sugar and carrots out of my HAND. It has never, in a million years, crossed my mind to be nude/semi-nude near one. It has never occurred to me to have them “dig” for stuff with their sweaty, mealy mouths in my clothes.

    I find it utterly repulsive when people allow them to take stuff out of their mouths with their mouths. Do you have any idea how germy a horse’s mouth is? (And don’t start with how our mouths are “dirtier”, we have different germs-not “dirtier” ones).

    Horses have long been associated with human sexuality-we used to ride them for transportation and the rubbing down there creates quite the sensation. I’ve had to adjust while riding horses before to avoid such things. If you don’t know that, you are quite naive.

  65. kili says:

    She is so gross and mental I don’t get how she has any fans.

  66. crab says:

    @ Love Angelina, do you personally know her? You seem to know exactly what she says and thinks about different things like your her best friend!! A little obsessed maybe???

  67. Melanie says:

    @ 65. If you want to see a fan, look at #51. Repulsive, just like her idol.

  68. Slymm27 says:

    OMG!, its just a picture, bet there were a thousand people on set. Get your minds out of the gutter, and let her be.

  69. Jen says:

    I wouldn’t say it’s bestiality, but it’s certainly a little skanky for saint angie’s current image. Davis La Chapelle is more ‘notorious’ than ‘legendery’, and most of his work is a bit cheap and tacky to me. But it does what it’s supposed to do- get people talking.

    Shock and awe indeed.

  70. skibunny says:

    #66 I was wondering the same thing about Love Angelina. My guess is she’s obsessed. Scary!

  71. Kim says:

    If she really loves horses she wouldnt carry the bag at all because it promotes use of animal furs in fashion period. People wont know the horse was treated ethical (if it was) and will just see a famous celeb they want to emulate wearing an animal skin bag and will replicate it buy buying a real horse hair bag fromn horses that were beaten and starved for their skins.

  72. Jeannified says:

    Awesome purse!

  73. Milan says:

    jumping jehosaphat, but that Horse looks like it knows what angelina wants. Dude, there is no mistaking it, that is foreplay or horseplay depending on how you look at it. Then they took naughty pictures???? And Paris thinks she’s all that coz of her movie one night in paris, where she gave up her goods for a Z-list celebrity. Angelina’s got more class, she is doing it with a thouroughbred horse…b*&ches! ‘Now that’s hot! Paris…so STFU!’

  74. Moirano says:

    Gross tats. Nasty pix altogether.
