Angelina Jolie Prepares To Play Cleopatra

Angelina Jolie is preparing to play Cleopatra in the big screen. It was one of the late Elizabeth Taylor’s most famous roles.

“My performance will never be as lovely as Elizabeth’s. We are trying to get into a different truth about her as a pharaoh in history and not as a sex symbol, because she really wasn’t. Even this idea of her having many lovers – it was possible that it was only two. She is very interesting, but she wasn’t a great beauty.”

We first heard about this project a while ago (much to some people’s dismay), so I’m glad to hear they’re making progress! I’m excited to see Angelina as Cleopatra. How about you?

Quote Of The Day: Angelina Jolie On Brad Pitt

Six years don’t seem to have led to boredom or even less excitement between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Here’s what Angelina said about Brad in a recent interview:

“I am very lucky with Brad. He is a real gentleman, but he is also a real man’s man.

“He’s got the wonderful balance of being an extraordinary, great, loving father, a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man…in all things that it means,” she adds, blushing to the reporter.

Awww… that is sweet, isn’t it? People may not have given this couple much of a chance when they got together, but they’re turning into one of Hollywood’s few enduring couples.

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Enjoy Some Down Time

I hardly recognize Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in these pictures – the couple have been glammed up at so many events lately it’s rare we’ve seen them dressed down!

The superstar couple were out shopping at Ozzie Dots in Los Angeles today and look to be enjoying their time together. Angelina even treated herself to a lollipop!

The couple’s daughter, Shiloh, will turn 5 on Friday, so maybe they were out picking up party supplies. I’m very happy that Brad decided to shave, now only if he would cut that hair!

Brad Pitt On Work And Parenting

If you hadn’t heard yet (I won’t say too much to avoid spoiling it), Brad Pitt’s character in ‘Tree of Life‘ isn’t the most, well, nicest guy. He’s not the most nurturing parent. I guess that’s a good way to say it. So how did playing this part affect the father of six?

“I certainly don’t raise my kids that same way,” Pitt told [E!'s Marc Malkin]. “I’m painfully away that my actions have an indelible mark on them in these formative years.

“I make sure I don’t bring my crap home. I want to keep them free. I want them to explore that innocence as long as possible and find out what’s interesting to them. I just don’t want to encumber them in any way.”

Brad’s real-life role as a father even influenced how he worked with his young co-stars on the set of ‘Tree of Life.’

“We had to be careful because these are young boys and you don’t to scar them in the process, so it was explained to them ahead of time who I was playing and they knew it was coming, but they didn’t know when it was coming. So in between we made sure we had a lot of time of every day life, throwing the ball around, riding bikes. I think everyone got through it unscathed.”

It was thoughtful of him to think about that!

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Attend LA Premiere Of “The Tree Of Life”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt looked fabulous last night as they walked the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of “The Tree of Life”. Brad’s new movie is getting a lot of buzz in the industry – I’m actually looking forward to watching the film.

During one of his interviews, Brad said that Angie is a “militant” mom when it comes to packing. I guess you have to be when you have 6 children!

“We’re quite comfortable living out of suitcases, we’re quite nomadic. “We’ve got it down and the kids have got their backpack. They have to carry their backpack and if they forget it, they forget it – because there’s just too much to keep track of. “Mom’s really good at packing. She’s militant, she’s really, really talented. I couldn’t do it.”

It’s funny because I automatically assumed that Angie never packed a thing and her staff did it for her. Just because they are rich doesn’t mean they aren’t involved in their kids’ day to day lives! I have to get over that.

Brad told the Sun Newspaper that it’s best to establish a routine while on the road.

“They’re quite used to it. We try to travel at night so they sleep because it’s really difficult for everyone to be awake and the chaos that ensues. “We always take them to the locations. We try to keep the family intact – we think that’s very important.”

“The thing I’m most proud of I think is that the biggest part of our kids’ education is getting to see the world and getting to experience the world and other cultures.”

Would you continue to take your kids out of school and with you if you were an actor? Or would you leave them at home?

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Treat Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh & Pax To The Movies

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie didn’t waste any time after coming home from the Cannes International Film Festival.

After a whirlwind week of red carpet events, the couple headed straight home and treated their four eldest children Maddox Chivan, Zahara Marley, Shiloh Nouvel and Pax Thien to the premier of “Kung Fu Panda 2” in Los Angeles earlier today (May 22).

As usual the A-list couple kept calm and cool amidst the swarm of fans who were scrambling to get a glimpse of the family.

Some exciting news for Brad Pitt! Today when the Cannes International Film Festival came to an official close, the jury awarded top prize, the Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) award to Brad’s movie The Tree of Life. What an honour!

Adoption Theme Resonated With Angelina Jolie In ‘Panda’ Sequel

Powerful actress Angelina Jolie had a very personal reason for doing the sequel to ‘Kung Fu Panda’: the issue of adoption that is brought up in the film.

“It’s about who we are and who we decide to be—we make the choices,” Angelina Jolie said in a press conference about the adoption theme of “Kung Fu Panda 2.”

Angelina said people are not defined by “the way we look or where we are from. My character was also raised in an orphanage.”

One of the things discussed in the film is how Po (a panda) came to be raised by a goose. This makes sense to me, given that Angelina has three adopted children. I bet they enjoy the movies, too!
