Angelina Jolie on meeting Brad: ‘I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds’

I’m not sure what all of this is about, but it’s always nice to hear from The Leg of Doom. I’ve missed her! Haven’t you missed her? Angelina Jolie was everywhere a year ago – Brad was nominated for a bunch of awards and she was “the date” plus she was promoting In the Land of Blood and Honey, plus she didn’t mind when the paparazzi got nice shots of her and the kids. And nowadays… there’s such an absence! I miss her. Anyway, Angelina might have given a new interview to Total Film Magazine – I don’t think TF is in the habit of completely making up interviews, but you never know. Angelina talks about directing, her kids, and how she got with Brad. Maybe I’m clinging to this because there’s been such a dearth of quality Jolie-Pitt stories, but I think this interview is pretty good:

Angelina Jolie, she of The Leg, doesn’t let her overwhelming fame go to her head. In an interview with Total Film magazine the 37-year-old stunner opened up about her and fiance Brad Pitt’s lifestyle.

“The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!” Jolie told interviewer James Mottram.

The Jolie-Pitt clan consists of the two A-listers and their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Despite being known worldwide, Jolie insists ”we have a very normal, very grounded home. And we’re friends, and we have a laugh with our kids.”

How do they deal with the swarms of paparazzi waiting on their every move? “We just explain to our kids that people like to take pictures of people who make movies. And that’s all it is. It’s not anything special about mommy and daddy – we just happen to make movies.”

On that note, Jolie also talked about “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” her film set in the Bosnian War and the first she’s ever directed.

“I didn’t set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film,” the Academy Award-winning actress told the magazine. “I’ve been traveling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart … So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.”

On fame: “I don’t think [actors need a mystique surrounding their private life]. You know the actor. You’ve seen them at award shows, you’ve seen them at premieres dressed up. So whether they share or not, their cover is already blown.”

On her roles: “I do feel that’s very much what a woman is, that combination [of very strong but also very feminine], and I think interesting roles do have that combination – more complex people have that dual side to their personality.”

On being labeled sexy: “I’m a woman, and anytime you tell a woman that she looks nice, it’s not going to upset her.”

On “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” bringing her and Brad together: “Yes, we do talk about that. We look around at our kids. I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds.”

[From HuffPo]

“I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds…” Hunh. That’s an interesting way to say it… their relationship “unfolded”. Discuss! As for the poop quote – that was very un-Angelina, right?

Speaking of unfolding, Star Magazine reports this week that Angelina is pregnant again. Yeah… it’s Star. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they went for one more (or two more). A source tells Star, “Angelina has been talking about having another child for years now… But Brad kept putting his foot down because of their intense schedules and chaotic lifestyle.” So Angelina just went ahead and got knocked up and Brad cried about it and now Angelina is purposefully staying out of the spotlight because she doesn’t want people to know she’s knocked up. The source says, “She had morning sickness and didn’t want to draw attention to herself in public. She’s focusing on the other children right now, trying to prepare them for the new baby.” Angelina and Brad are convinced that she’s expecting a boy, and Shiloh says that they’ll need to name him “John” (because that’s what Shiloh calls herself).

Mad Men Season 6 Premieres April 7, 2013

Mad Men Season 6 Premieres April 7, 2013

Mad Men Season 6 Premiere 2013

The past two seasons of Mad Men have kept us on the edge of our seats as to when the show would premiere, but we finally know the premiere date of Mad Men Season 6.

On April 7, 2013, the season will kick off with a 2-hour premiere episode at 9pm.  The following week the show will return to it’s regularly scheduled time at 10PM. Sadly, Season 7 will be it’s last, so you better enjoy it while you can.

Creator Matt Wiener promises this season will be a pivotal one in the series. he told the Daily Beast: “I came in with my plan for the season. I was like, ‘I want to save that for the last season, I want to save that; I want to wait on that’ and I was pulled aside by Maria and Andre Jacquemetton, my executive producers, who said, ‘Don’t do that. You’ve never done that before. Let’s just use all the story that we have and we’ll deal with it on the other side of it.’ It really helped. Because I don’t want to change, part of it is superstition and part of it is the only way I know how to do it.

“I never had the guarantee of even one more season for the first few seasons I did the show. So I would just use all the story I had. And it’s a much better way to do it. It’s much better for the audience. It’s much more satisfying for us than going through some half-measure and wasting 13 episodes on a set-up. For what? For 13 more? I was told by my trusted co-workers that we should do the show the way we’ve always done it. And I think, as usual, I will probably be painted into a corner by the end of the season.”

Want a refresher of Season 5? Beginning March 3, 2013, fans can set their DVRs to record Season 5 episodes (Sunday mornings, hence the DVR) leading up until Mad Men Season 6′s premiere. And from what Matt Wiener says, you might want to.

“So where is he [Don Draper] going from there? I don’t know. Is he going to try to repair that relationship? Is going to move on from it? I can’t tell you. I would love for people to just watch the last 10 minutes of Season 5 right before Season 6 starts. I think you’ll have a really incredible experience as we get there.”

Can. Not. Wait.

Lena Dunham Saddened by Rihanna & Chris Brown

Lena Dunham Rihanna Chris Brown

Girls creator and recent Golden Globes winner Lena Dunham spoke about Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s relationship in a podcast on Monday, and she revealed that their relationship saddens her.

“It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna,” Lena worried.

“Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy. She’s talented and then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed…And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.”

Osbourne, 28, and Mosshart, 29, began dating in the summer of 2011 and obviously things have gone well. The happy couple reportedly got engaged a few weeks before Christmas.

According to UsWeekly (via The Hollywood Gossip), a friend of the couple said, “Kelly is the happiest she’s ever been. Her career is going well, and she’s in a healthy relationship with a wonderful guy.”

In October, Kelly herself told British magazine Fabulous how happy she is with her man saying, “I couldn’t believe that he truly liked me because I never think people ever could. But I’m so happy. I don’t think I’ve ever really known what love is like before.”

If you’ve seen recent photos of Kelly, not only is she physically looking the best she’s ever looked, you can tell in her eyes and her demeanor she’s truly at peace with herself. It’s nice to see.

Sending major congrats to the newly engaged couple!
