Angelina Jolie ‘Unbroken’ Director’s Next Project? Getting “This Wife Thing” Down For Brad Pitt (Video)

"Unbroken" UK PremiereActress-director Angelina Jolie can do many things, from acting to directing to leading humanitarian efforts around the world. Yet she still has things to work on. What’s her next “project”? RELATED: Angelina Jolie shares her stress-coping strategy.

Angelina said in an interview for ‘Today':

I think we have more moments where I’m like, ‘I’m gonna be a better wife. I’m gonna be a better cook.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, honey, know what your’e good at. Know what you’re not.”No, no, I’m gonna get this wife thing down!’ But he knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and good mom.”

She also opened up about their wedding day.

[Our wedding day] was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together. Not because we had to or because anything was missing in our lives, but because we were absolutely sure we felt that much of a family. … It was really lovely. It was a lovely day.”

Take a look at Angelina’s interview below. These pictures were taken at the ‘Unbroken’ premiere in London last night.

Angelina Jolie wouldn’t want to pay UK taxes: ‘I’m quite responsible about money’

jolie interview russia

Here is Angelina Jolie’s new cover for Interview Russia. It doesn’t seem to be taken from another photoshoot, so maybe she actually did a photoshoot with Interview Russia? Weird. Anyway, there’s some various news stories about Angelina. Earlier this week, there were some stories that she was shopping for some real estate… in London! Probably so she could be closer to Jack O’Connell?! (OMG, that would be amazing.) But when she was on the red carpet last night in London, she told a British outlet that she’s not really interested in buying a London home because of the proposed real estate taxes:

The actress, who is currently in London promoting new film Unbroken, jokingly told Channel 4 News’ Jon Snow that, although she’d like to have an UK base, the proposed tax could deter her.

“I have lived here before and in the future I think it would be really nice to have a foothold here for work, some kind of office would be nice,” she said.

Snow then notes that the UK’s expensive houses are expected to become more expensive with new tax plans, but suggests that this probably wouldn’t discourage Jolie too much.

“I’m quite responsible about money. That could put me off,” she laughed in response.

[From The Irish Independent]

I tend to think Angelina is pretty good with money, you know? She buys nice gifts for Brad and the kids and she flies by private plane, but she’s not spending money like it’s going out of style. She doesn’t have a crazy wardrobe and Brad is the one with the luxury real estate addiction.

Oh, and before the Unbroken premiere last night, Angelina went to Parliament! She was checking out the House of Lords “to see her close friend Arminka Helic, 46, become a member of the 1,000-year-old institution.” Jolie sat in the gallery with Sir Nicholas Soames. Angelina said she was “extremely proud” of Helic and “She’s been in many ways a mentor to me and she’s an extraordinary woman and I’m very, very honored to be here today.” After the ceremony, Angelina and some of Helic’s friends had tea in the House of Lords’ dining room. Apparently, Baroness Helic (that’s her new title) worked closely with Jolie to put together Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. Angelina is rolling in some really amazing circles these days.

Update by Celebitchy: Here are some new photos that just came out of Angelina in Paris. She was leaving the set of French TV show “Vivement Dimanche”.

Angelina Jolie smoked a cigarette & fought with Brad Pitt on a Sydney balcony

jolie EW

First, let’s do the Entertainment Weekly stuff. We’ll get to The Leg of Doom and her cigarettes in just a moment. As you can see, Angelina covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, with her arm draped protectively over Jack O’Connell, the lead of Unbroken. Angelina does have a type – she likes scrappy sh-tkickers, bad boys with hearts of gold. That’s the vibe I’m getting from Jack too. In another life… they would have been extremely HOT together as a couple. Like, crazy hot. As for the EW interview – go here to read the excerpt from the cover story. It’s stuff we’ve heard before, how Angelina couldn’t believe the studio let her direct this, etc. She also talked about what she does to relieve stress: Christmas present wrapping! Because she can’t say “I chainsmoked two packs waiting to hear back from the studio.”

Now, on to the cigarettes, the fight and what I can only assume was Brad Pitt storming out of an Australian hotel room in tears. Woman’s Day, an Aussie tabloid, got exclusive shots of Brad and Angelina fighting on a hotel balcony two weekends ago, just before the big Sydney premiere of Unbroken. GO HERE to see the exclusive photos. To me (a Brangeloonie with a lifetime membership) it looks like they’re having a disagreement but not a fight. Like, those aren’t OMG I’M SO ANGRY faces. Those are “You are plucking my last nerve, you better take a bath before the premiere, Goat Boy” and “Jesus, Angie, another sack dress?” faces. As for the cigarettes… Angelina was a casual smoker in her youth, but I thought she stopped smoking cigarettes a long time ago. Maybe she did and she started up again? God knows, Brad has quit a bunch of times and gone back to Sweet Lady Nicotine every time.

If you will remember, Brad had been promoting Fury all over Asia, and Angelina had been in LA for the Hollywood Film Awards, so they ended up meeting in Australia so they could walk the carpet together. And if you remember, they weren’t tons of photos of Brad and Angelina side-by-side, holding hands or grabbing each other’s asses or anything. When they did pose together, it was mostly with the Unbroken cast. So, what do we make of the photos? Did they have a blow-out fight and they were still pissy with each other at the premiere? Did Brad agree to take a bath? Is Angelina a stress smoker? Did someone cry and storm out of the hotel?!

Damn, Brangelina. Pull it together! Unbroken needs some sensual red carpet butt-grabs. And if they don’t work it out, I hope Angelina steals Jack O’Connell away from Cara Delevingne and then Angie and Jack become the hot new couple.

Angelina Jolie: ‘I’m going to be a better wife. I’m going to cook.’

FFN_Jolie_Ang_MIT_112114_51591621

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em!!! Angelina Jolie’s first major TV interview has just come out – she was interviewed by Tom Brokaw for Today/NBC News and you know what? At the top of this clip, Matt Lauer sounds totally jealous that Brokaw got the interview. Ha! Angelina is Team Ann Curry, you know. She was tight with Curry and I seriously doubt Angelina will ever sit down with Lauer again. But Brokaw? Sure. Brokaw also reveals that NBC is making some kind of documentary about Louis Zamperini and how Jolie got the film made and stuff. Brokaw interviewed Jolie and Zamperini just a few months before Louis passed too, so I’m sure that’s why Brokaw is all over this. Here’s the interview:

I love that Brokaw went right for a quote about the wedding. Angelina talked about being married to Brad now, saying:

“It did change, in just a feeling of that security and comfort that we always had but recommitting after 10 years of being together. We were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation where got married with our children, and they were part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows. So, it was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together—not because we had to, not because anything was missing in our lives—but because we were absolutely sure. We felt that much of a family and it was that moment. It was really lovely. It was a lovely day… I think we have more moments where I’ll say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife. I’m going to cook.’ And he says, ‘Oh, honey. Just know what you’re good at. Know what you’re not.’ ” she said. “But I do this, ‘No, no, no! I’m gonna get this wife thing down.’ But he knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.”

[Via E! News]

She also says working with Brad was “actually great.” Oh, and this is fascinating: “The first film we did together, we weren’t together…Ten years on, we’ve learned a lot more about each other, and it’s a film about a very troubled marriage. So, it felt like the appropriate thing to do on our honeymoon.” Hm.

Meanwhile, In Touch Weekly totally bought the photos of Angelina and Brad’s Sydney “fight” and cigarette-smoking. Sources claim that Brad threw up his arms and “you could see the frustration on his face…He was clearly exasperated with her…They kept talking over each other and putting their hands up in anger. They were upset but getting nowhere. Angie looked like she was on the verge of tears.” Sources say “Brad doesn’t want her smoking – at all” and their fight was so major, they were “distant” with each other on the red carpet. Oh, and they left Sydney in two separate private jets. Huh.

Jude Law looks lovely in Mr. Porter, talks about aging & the tabloids

jude1

Just in case you forgot, Jude Law is a very attractive man. These Mr. Porter photos are so old-school Jude! He looks so beautiful. So beautiful that I temporarily forgot that he’s expecting his fifth child by his third baby-mama, a 23-year-old singer-type named Catherine Harding. Catherine and Jude are no longer together. So, he basically got one of his hookups pregnant and he’s trying to make the best out of it. As for this Mr. Porter thing… Jude is promoting his new film, Black Sea. Jude plays “a laid-off submarine captain who goes in hunt of a sunken ship rumoured to be laden with Nazi gold.” Which might cause some people to wonder: is Jude poor? And the answer is yes. He’s paying child support to two women and he’s about to pay child support to a third. He IS poor. He will work in whatever he can get. You can read the full Mr. Porter article here. Some highlights:

His role in Black Sea: “It required a certain gravitas. It’s not something I could have done in my twenties or thirties. Having recently turned 40, I feel that I’m only just reaching the stage where I can do this sort of thing justice.”

He has looked forward to aging all his life: “I tend to think of it in terms of Shakespeare. You can’t play Prospero in your twenties. And you can’t play Lear. In your twenties, you play Romeo, you play Hamlet. And maybe you progress to Coriolanus, to Henry V. They’re like hoops you have to jump through. Keep going, and you’ll get to Prospero, you’ll get to Lear. But you can’t rush it.”

Acknowledging that women have it harder in Hollywood: “The plight of women over a certain age is a bit of a running gag in the movie industry. Not a very funny one, admittedly.”

The tabloid press: “I no longer let that stuff in. I honestly don’t know and don’t care what’s being written about me. If people want to buy into it, then they can. I just try to live a normal life now. It’s my right. Being free to go out – to a restaurant, to the theatre, or even just to a gardening centre – is my right. That’s what living is. So that’s what I do.”

[From Mr. Porter]

I agree that Jude has grown into what he always wanted to be: a brilliant character actor. People always treated him like he should just be a solid leading man, but Jude wanted different things for his career, and I respect that. I’m glad he’s not clinging to his pretty-boy vibe from two decades ago. And he’s right, the parts for him only get better as he gets older. And it’s not the same for women. As for the tabloid press stuff… I think that’s a smart decision for Jude in particular, to simply not participate in it. Don’t get mad, just ignore it. And he’ll have to do a lot of ignoring if he keeps knocking up his hookups!

PS… I have a thing about great profiles and Jude has an amazing profile! He’s right up there were Angelina Jolie’s profile.

Angelina Jolie covers DuJour: ‘I’ve never loved being in front of the camera’

jolie cover

We are in a Golden Age of Angelina Jolie editorials, let me tell you. While I didn’t care for Angelina’s Vanity Fair profile, the Mario Testino photos were gorgeous. Then the Variety shoot yesterday was stunning. And now this DuJour Magazine editorial might be the best photoshoot yet!! Go here to see the full slideshow – it’s Angelina solo, and then Angelina posing with Jack O’Connell, the actor playing Louis Zamperini. Jack is super-handsome in these photos too. Ten, fifteen years ago… Angelina and Jack would have been a couple. They would have been torrid and bad and sexy and it would have been amazing to watch. But now they are just friends and coworkers. As for the profile… it’s another great piece. Go here to read. Some highlights:

Jolie on looking for projects & finding Unbroken: “I was looking for something to do and studying what was out there as a director. Directing is very different from acting because it takes more than two years of your life, so it has to matter—really matter—in a different way. Every time you visit a studio, they give you the projects” that have been in limbo, she says, “and I saw these four sentences on Unbroken. I went home and I said to Brad, ‘I’m really curious about this film—it’s a triumph of the human spirit finding faith and forgiveness, and this man’s life seems so interesting.’ And Brad said, ‘Oh, honey, that project has been around forever.’ ”

Fighting for Louis’s story: “I fought for it for months and it became less about wanting to do a film and more that I wanted to be close to be somebody like Louie. I felt I needed to go on that journey, that it would make me a better person if I could. I was begging not only to be the director—I was begging to have the opportunity to spend two years of my life focused on Louie Zamperini.”

Jolie on wanting to mother the actors: “All the boys had to starve—even the extras—and we’d have days when there were 200 young men just standing in the heat. The mother in me wanted to stop and put everyone under a tent and give them water and just call it a day. The other side of me had to do my job and push it forward.”

Making Unbroken for her sons: “In the back of my mind, I wanted to make a film that would help my boys become better men. They know Louie’s story, so I’m able to say to them that it’s not bad to be full of fire—it’s what you choose to do with that fire.”

Her future as an actress: “I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera. I didn’t ever think I could direct, but I hope I’m able to have a career at it because I’m much happier.” Is the plan to give up acting entirely? She smiles. “Absolutely.”

Working on ‘By the Sea’: “The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It’s hard, dramatic material, and we’re balancing. It’s a heavy film, and it’s not easy for us. But even as you struggle through it, you’re in the trenches together and you don’t expect it to be easy. We’re challenging each other and that’s a really good thing.”

Married life: “I think when it’s right, it feels the exact same [as before].”

[From DuJour]

There are lots of quotes from Jack too, I just wanted to focus the excerpts on Angelina. Jack talks about how “very f—king brutal” it was to lose weight and shoot the POW scenes and the athletic scenes. He also talked about learning that one of his friends had been diagnosed with cancer and really needing to be around friends and family just before the shoot, and Angelina got a helicopter and organized a big group of people to come out for Jack, and how much all of that meant to him. It’s a good read, but they repeat some stuff from the Variety piece yesterday. What I like is that Jack doesn’t seem to be playing the “too cool for all of this” game. He seems to genuinely want to go out of his way to support this film. It’s nice.

Did Angelina Jolie personally ban Kim Kardashian from the ‘Unbroken’ premiere?

FFN_SNAPPER_Jolie_UnbrokenPC_111714_51588069

This is just a fun story, and even though Kim Kardashian’s rep already denied it, I’m praying that there’s some truth to it. As we all know, Angelina Jolie did her big world premiere of Unbroken in Sydney, Australia this week. It was a huge event and it seemingly went off without a hitch. Some of the actors were there, plus Angelina and Brad walked the carpet, and Angelina invited the Aussie crew plus Australian WWII veterans. The focus of the premiere was where it needed to be. Cut to Kim Kardashian, who was also in Australia at the same time. She was there to promote herself, her perfume, her booty and whatever else. Allegedly, she wanted to go to the premiere. And Angelina BANNED HER.

Kim Kardashian’s representative has unequivocally denied that the reality TV star was banned from attending the world premiere of Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken in Sydney. On Wednesday Australian website TheFix reported a source has revealed that Angelina, 39, ‘personally barred’ the reality TV star, 34, from attending Monday night’s event at the State Theatre.

According to the article Kim ‘begged for tickets to the Unbroken premiere’ and ‘desperately tried to arrange a get-together with Brad and Angie’.

However, a representative from Kim’s camp told Daily Mail Australia, ‘The story is preposterous. Completely false‎. She did not ask to attend the premiere’.

In fact the social media darling was hours south of the premiere on a shoot reported to be for Vogue magazine, in Jervis Bay. The quoted ‘source’ also added that, ‘Angie’s people told Kim to buzz off and that Angie didn’t want to socialise with Kim or do a photo op in Australia with her. Kim was crushed.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I hope the gossip is true and Kim did approach Angelina or the studio about possibly attending the premiere and I hope she was shut down. It’s possible that there was an approach but it wasn’t “begging” per se, and once she was told no, Kim simply made other plans. But let’s be real – Kim would have LOVED to have gone to the premiere. She would have loved nothing more than to get a photo-op with Angelina or Brad or both.

Here are some photos of Kim and North – Kim posted these on Instagram:

Angelina Jolie in a lace Gucci for Sydney ‘Unbroken’ premiere: fab or fug?

wenn21933740

Here are some photos from today’s world premiere of Unbroken, which was held in Sydney, Australia. It was a big event – Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt walked the red carpet, and most of Angelina’s actors came too. Jack O’Connell (the star) was there, as was Miyavi, the Japanese rock star-turned-actor. Some people think Miyavi is going to get an Oscar nomination for playing the sadistic Japanese POW-camp leader, The Bird. Garrett Hedlund didn’t come to the premiere though, and I don’t see any pics of Jai Courtney or Domhnall Gleeson, so I guess Jack and Miyavi were the only actors to come. Still, it was probably a really nice event for the mostly Australian crew, and Angelina made sure some Aussie WWII veterans were invited to the premiere as well.

For the premiere, Angeline wore this very fitted and sleek Gucci gown. You know lace isn’t my jam, but this is okay. It’s fine. I prefer it to her sack dresses. Angelina’s been doing more body-con looks lately, which is nice. Maybe the sack dresses were a phase and now that she’s post-surgery and her breast reconstruction has “settled,” she feels more comfortable in tighter clothes.

On the red carpet, Angelina told The Mail that she and Brad feel different after the wedding: “I think we just feel that much closer. It makes us happy to be married, if that makes any sense. I don’t think we needed it but it feels … he’s my husband.”

Jennifer Aniston in a little plaid dress at NYC ‘Cake’ screening: cute or blah?

FFN_Aniston_Jenn_GGFF_111614_51587349

Far be it from me to add more kindling to Uncool Bermuda Triangle fire, but I think it’s incredibly odd that Jennifer Aniston did a screening of Cake last night, just hours before Angelina Jolie’s worldwide premiere of Unbroken in Australia. The Unbroken premiere has been on the books for a few months now (we’ll have photos in a bit). Jennifer only recently got a distributor for Cake – and she basically just bought it herself and she’s going to be financing her own Oscar campaign – so is she trying to steal The Leg’s thunder? Deep thoughts on a Monday, I know. Perhaps it’s just a quirk of timing. Perhaps.

Anyway, for the screening last night, Jennifer wore this plaid dress which is A) too short and B) too big in her waist. So when she walks or does anything, the dress rides up and gives her the appearance of a baby bump. She’s not pregnant, people. She just wanted to look bumpy and/or show off her legs. I’m also including some photos of Jennifer earlier in the day (Sunday) – I like that outfit so much more. Great jeans, great boots (I think the boots came to the screening too), and just a better look overall. Is the coat the same? No, I don’t think so. Both coats are nice though. Jennifer’s always had pretty good coat game.

Once again, just like for the Horrible Bosses 2 premiere in London, Justin Theroux was around (somewhere) for the screening, but she didn’t walk the carpet with him. She didn’t appear with him until the afterparty.

So, what do you think? Did The Hair steal The Leg’s thunder?
