Angelina Jolie honors her ‘Unbroken’ lead, cutie Jack O’Connell, at the HFAs

wenn21929003

I was wondering why Angelina Jolie would deign to appear at last night’s Hollywood Film Awards last night, considering Unbroken is still a month and a half away from being released, but I shouldn’t have worried. She only came out to honor her Unbroken lead actor, cutie Jack O’Connell. You’ll have to forgive me, because I’ve never seen Jack’s work before, so this red carpet and show was the first time I’d ever seen him in motion and heard his accent. This boy is ADORABLE. He’s got that naughty-boy/bad-boy thing going on, like a young Michael Fassbender. But Jack’s also going to play the game a little bit, mostly for “Her Ladyship” Angelina. That’s what he called her!! Angelina presented Jack with the New Hollywood Award. Here’s the video.

Angelina is super-serious and it really felt like everybody shut up when she was speaking. I wonder how it feels as a young actor, barely known in Hollywood, to be plucked from relative obscurity to take the lead in a huge Hollywood WWII movie and then to have Angelina Jolie present you with an award? Well, Jack wore it well.

PS… Jack wore Gucci. Angelina’s black wool gown was custom-made Atelier Versace!

Star: Angelina Jolie & Amal Clooney totally hate each other, of course

star1

The Leg will not sanction this buffoonery! The Leg will come for vengeance. The Leg judges your wedding. The Leg is jelly because Amal Clooney has great hair. As you can see, Star Mag has moved off of The Old Uncool Triangle and is trying to make The New Uncool Quadrangle a thing. George Clooney versus Brad Pitt. Angelina Jolie versus Amal Clooney. The Leg versus The Hobo Formerly Known as Brad. Etc. According to Star, Angelina is hellbent on making Brad Pitt cry AND disrespecting Amal. The Leg is coming for all of y’all.

When George and Amal Clooney celebrated their wedding for a second time on Oct. 25, there was once again two very noticeable guests missing — Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were nowhere to be seen!

After years of friendship, it seemed odd for the Fury star to miss his old buddy’s wedding — twice! And while he and Angelina were, indeed, filming By the Sea during the original Sept. 27 nuptials, a source close to their family says there’s more to the absence than just work commitment. “They were invited and Brad gave George his word he’d be there,” the insider explains. “But Angie vetoed the trip at the last minute. She wanted to pull a power play and dis Amal.”

Both women are invested in humanitarian work, but the first time they crossed paths, in London on June 12, Angie made it clear that Amal was persona non grata — and even blew her off when Amal requested a public greeting in front of photographers. “Angie feels competitive with Amal,” the source reveals. “She has been running from her past for years, and although she’s done a fabulous job reinventing herself, she continues to feel like an uneducated outsider.”

Of course, the victims in Angie and Amal’s standoff are Brad and George, whose friendship has unraveled in recent years, allegedly due to Angelina’s controlling behavior. “Angie has forbidden Brad to speak to George,” the insider reports. “She’s walled him off from so many of his old friends that Brad is getting fed up.”

[From Star]

Is it even worth fact-checking? Let’s give it a whirl – I kind of doubt that George really expected Brad and Angelina to come to the Venice wedding or the English reception. I think it’s possible George invited Brangelina to the Italian wedding (Brad kind of said as much), but Brad and Angie were legitimately working. As for Angelina going out of her way to disrespect Amal and feeling “uneducated” compared to Amal… I mean, the last time Angelina was in London, she literally went to Buckingham Palace to get Dame’d by the Queen. Angelina literally founded the summit to bring attention to sexual violence in conflict and Amal attended the summit with no drama.

But here’s an interesting addendum to the supposed “feud” – Star goes on to claim that Angelina has no respect for some of Amal’s clients. Amal has represented the king of Bahrain and Muammar Gaddafi’s intelligence chief, plus some other petty despots. And she was once (and perhaps still is?) on the legal team defending Julian Assange. Angelina thinks Amal should represent better clients. And Amal thinks Angelina is a political naïf. What a fancy dispute!

As you can imagine, George Clooney’s rep ran to Gossip Cop to deny, deny, deny this story.

Zahara Jolie-Pitt told her Angelina Jolie that Maddox kissed his girlfriend

jolie

Some sites have gotten more advanced quotes from Angelina Jolie’s Vanity Fair profile. The full cover article is online today (but you have to buy it). Since I’m cheap, I’m just going with the excerpts I can find for free. Like this absolutely adorable story, which is about Maddox Jolie-Pitt’s girlfriend. Do you remember that? Angelina told Entertainment Tonight back in May that then-12-year-old Maddox had a little girlfriend in England. And during the course of the VF interview – which took place during the Summit To End Sexual Violence in Conflict over the summer – Zahara comes in to tattle-tale on her brother:

While speaking with the Unbroken star for Vanity Fair”s December issue, author Janine Di Giovanni was lucky enough to witness a sweet family moment, which occurred while Angie, along with her hubby and brood of six, were in London, where the humanitarian gave a moving speech at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. After dining out for sushi with her family, the author writes how Jolie returned to hotel to kick back and “eat tortilla chips while watching the World Cup on the telly.”

“Her daughter Zahara wanders in and leans over, ‘What honey?’ Jolie asks her,” the mag details. “With their faces pressed close together, Zahara shares a secret, prompting a laugh. Later, Jolie says in a mock-staged whisper, ‘She said Mad and his girlfriend are kissing.’”

[From E! News]

What we now know: Maddox is a lady’s man. Angelina and Brad let Maddox invite his girlfriend over and they leave Madd and Girlfriend unchaperoned, sort of. And we also know that Zahara is The All-Seeing Eye of the Jolie-Pitt family. Zahara knows EVERYTHING. And she likes to gossip. Perhaps Zahara = the gossiping gerbils of doom, all this time?

VF also included an interesting passage where they spoke to Japanese pop star Miyavi, who is like the Justin Bieber/Timberlake of Japan. Miyavi makes his film debut in Unbroken, playing the violent psychopath guard Matsuhiro Watanabe, also known as The Bird (that’s what the POWs called him). Miyavi had to portray The Bird’s torture and abuse of POWs and he says he found the whole thing devastating:

“It was awful torture for me to hate the other actors—I had to have hatred for them. When I had to beat them, I had to think about protecting my family. At the same time, I didn’t want to be just a bad guy. I wanted to put humanity in this role. [Matsuhiro] was both crazy and sadistic, but also weak and traumatized. It’s a story that is still painful for my country. But [Angelina] told me she wanted to make a bridge between all countries that had conflict. She was very persuasive.” And after filming some of the more violent scenes, “I couldn’t stop crying,” he admitted.

[From E! News]

I think this is going to be a tearjerker all around, although I only cried once while reading the book, and that was right after the plane went down (no spoilers!). As for Miyavi in particular – The Bird is a juicy role and Oscar loves a good villain. Some people think Miyavi might end up with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nod. That would be interesting. If Domnhall Gleeson is really killing it as Phil, I kind of wonder if he wouldn’t be more worthy of the Oscar nom though. VF also has Angelina talking about getting to know Louis Zamperini in his last years, and the last time they saw each other before his passing: “I was more emotional than he was. I went in to take care of him—and he was taking care of me.” Aw.

Here’s a portrait of the Unbroken cast, done by VF a little while back. Hedlund’s got some thunder, right?

Angelina Jolie Says It Feels Good To Be Married To Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at MALEFICENT World Premiere in HollywoodWere you as surprised as I was last summer when the headlines went out that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had actually gone ahead and tied the knot? I admit, I’d become one of those people who thought they were just going to stay engaged indefinitely. Now Angelina is opening up about how the wedding came to be. RELATED: Being named an Honorary Dame didn’t help Angelina Jolie’s status at home.

Angelina told Vanity Fair:

It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife.”

The kids not only were involved in the wedding preparations: they were even involved in the vows!

They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!’ ”

Savvy and realistic kids- LOL. It sounds like Angelina and Brad’s nuptials truly were a family affair rather than some huge Hollywood event, which is sweet, isn’t it?

Angelina Jolie covers Vanity Fair, says she’s ‘open’ to running for political office

jolie VF

I can’t even tell you how much I hoped this would happen! Angelina Jolie covers the December issue of Vanity Fair. I was kind of hoping for a Vogue cover too – Jolie is promoting Unbroken, which comes out on Christmas Day – but maybe the other major mag covers will come for the January issues. This is Angelina’s first major magazine interview since marrying Brad Pitt in August. So… she has some stuff to say about her wedding, plus she talks about whether or not she would run for office (yay for this coming out on Election Day!). You can see VF’s exclusive here. Some highlights:

Her married life: “It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife.”

Directing her new husband: “A few friends asked if we were crazy . . . [A film about] a married couple going through some difficulties . . . and I’m directing him.”

The vows the kids wrote for them: “They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?,’ and we said, ‘We do!’ ”

The cake: “There was no cake, so Pax made a cake,” she said, referring to their second-oldest son. “The kids made little pillows for the rings, and Knox practiced [being a ringbearer] with an acorn that kept falling off the pillow. Brad’s mom went and picked some flowers and tied them up.”

She might run for office: “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.” Jolie then catches herself. “But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful—I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.” In di Giovanni’s last meeting with Jolie, however, Jolie’s opinion seems to have shifted. When directly asked if she sees herself pursuing a life in politics, diplomacy, or public service, Jolie says, “I am open.”

Showing the film to Louis Zamperini: Jolie was at Zamperini’s bedside for some of the last days of his life, and managed to show him an early cut of the film. “It was an extremely moving experience,” she tells di Giovanni, in tears, “to watch someone watching their own life . . . someone so physically strong . . . and they are at the stage where their body is giving up.” She continues, “And yet we laughed together, and talked about his mom. And being a man of such faith, he talked about all the people he believed he would be seeing on the other side. And that it would bring him peace. After a life of fighting, he could rest.”

Zamperini’s last days: At one point, Jolie recalls, Zamperini seemed to be failing. Then, as if from some deep reservoir of resolve, he rebounded. “[The doctors] said he was training to breathe on his own. And that’s what he always told me—you train, you fight harder than those other guys, and you win. You can take it. You make it.” At this point, Jolie grows more emotional, then collects herself. “Poetically, he stayed 40 days and 40 nights.” And then he passed on.

[From Vanity Fair]

I have mixed feelings about the possibility that Angelina could run for political office, or that she would take on a more politicized role. At this point, 13 years into her work with the UNHCR, Angelina has done an admirable job of keeping her personal political views close to the vest in order to be a more effective advocate for refugees. I think she has a lot of dirt in her past which would be used against her in a campaign… but I also think Angelina is very bright and she would run a fascinating political campaign. All that being said, not every politician campaigns for office. It’s possible that Angelina would rather have some kind of appointment as an ambassador or maybe some bureaucratic position high in the UN.

Is Amal Clooney ‘insecure’ about her body & crash-dieting to lose weight?

FFN_Alamuddin_Amal_FFUK_051314_51410034

Have you been missing Amal Clooney and her drama? I have been missing her this week. We need a good Amal Clooney sighting. In the meantime, it turns out that Meredith Vieira and Ellen DeGeneres both dressed up as Amal for Halloween, for their shows. I think Ellen gets bonus points because she actually got a blow-up George Clooney doll to make it look extra special. As for Amal and her dramz… she’s steadily becoming a tabloid fixture. YAY!

First up: OK! Magazine (ugh) says that when everyone started paying attention to Amal this past spring, the media attention made her self-conscious about her weight. A source told OK: “Amal became really insecure about her body after seeing photos of herself all over the place…[so] she lost eight pounds before the wedding.” Now she’s trying to maintain the weight loss by “surviving on two tiny meals a day.” George Clooney’s rep told Gossip Cop that the story is “fabricated”… but is it? Amal was always a slender woman, but she did lose weight as soon as the engagement was announced. And yeah, most brides lose weight before the wedding. I don’t get why that’s notable. Gossip Cop also has a story that I can’t find anywhere else:

Despite fabricated rumors of a feud, Amal Clooney and Angelina Jolie have never even met, George Clooney’s rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively. A fake tipster seems to be trying to get sites and magazines to do a story claiming the two women recently had a verbal fight in London.

The tale, which almost made it into one of tabloids this week, had the two women recently arguing over dinner, with Jolie eventually storming out of the meal and reportedly forbidding Brad Pitt from talking anymore to his buddy George. Clooney’s rep tells Gossip Cop the story about a supposed heated argument in a restaurant is “100 percent fiction,” noting that the two women have “never met.”

While both women were in London in June to attend the United Nations’ Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, which brought together 1,700 delegates, they were seated in two entirely different areas of a super massive auditorium and didn’t get the opportunity to meet. Of course, the phony source who is trying to spread these stories of strife between the ladies now claims Mrs. Clooney snubbed Jolie that time. Again, none of this is true. Mostly, it’s sad that people want to create drama between two successful and strong women when there isn’t any.

[From Gossip Cop]

So the story “almost” made it into a tabloid and George’s rep did a preemptive shutdown? That’s weird, right? It’s “almost” like George and his rep want this to be a story. While I doubt The Leg of Doom stormed out and decreed that Brad shall never speak to Mr. Clooney ever again, now I kind of wonder if Amal and Angelina DID meet at some point and they didn’t get along. Huh. Amal did attend Angelina’s Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. Hm…

And finally, there was this gem, from Us Weekly:

Partying ever after! One month after their Venetian vows, George and Amal Clooney kept the celebration going at a dinner hosted by her parents in Buckinghamshire, England. Relatives of Amal are already sweet on their new family member: “A group of women were fangirling over him and one started singing, ‘Georgie Porgie, puddin’ and pie Kissed the girls and made them cry’,” says a source. Later that woman “raved about getting a peck from George.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

Ah, maybe that’s why Amal looked so “over it” in those photos last weekend – she knew her relatives were going to act like a—holes around George Clooney.

Us Weekly: Renee Zellweger changed her face because ‘the parts started drying up’

renee us weekly

Renee Zellweger stepped out last week at the Elle Women in Hollywood event and somehow became one of the most talked-about topics of the month. As CB and I have both noted, Renee’s face work is NOT new. She’s been walking around with a radically different face for more than a year now. But for some reason, last week’s photos were the first time most people noticed. The “Renee had major plastic surgery” story went viral quickly, and Renee had to issue a statement to People Magazine where she basically sounded full of sh-t, claiming that her new look was just the result of her happiness and fulfillment. Riiight. Anyway, Renee’s face dramz took the cover of this week’s Us Weekly. Some highlights from the cover story:

She has been slammed with questions about her changing face since stepping out looking noticeably different at the Elle Women In Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills on October 20. And now UsWeekly has an explanation for what happened and why.

The publication claims the 45-year-old Jerry Maguire actress may have had work done to her upper eyelids because she was hoping to get more work in Hollywood. ‘The parts started drying up,’ a source revealed to magazine.

The blonde beauty- who made a name for herself in the nineties with such small hits as Love And A .45 and Empire Records and went on to co-star with Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain (2003) and Russell Crowe in Cinderella Man (2005) – was anxious about her popularity in Hollywood. In 2002 she saw her career high when she took a supporting role in Chicago with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere. That performance resulted in an Oscar nomination (she didn’t win, but took home the gold a year later for her supporting turn in Cold Mountain). But she has since not been able to repeat that success.

‘She wonders what’s wrong with her,’ added the pal. It was added, ‘She doesn’t know why she isn’t getting the roles she used to.’

Zellweger’s last big film was Leatherheads with George Clooney in 2008, which failed to impress at the box office. Her last big hit was the third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise which was released in 2004.

The weekly does not go into detail about what the star had done to her face. But they do talk to a plastic surgeon (Dr David Alessi) that suggested Renee had her eyes fixed (‘upper-lid surgery’) to be less heavy on top. That alleged work minimized her ethic Norwegian look. The doctor also suggested she may have had ‘fat removed from her cheeks.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I think eye work is definitely one of the stronger possibilities, and as I’m looking at the photos closely… yeah, I could see how she might have had her cheeks de-chipmunked. Now, all that being said… there wasn’t anything wrong with her old face. Sure, people joked about her “squint,” just like people joke about Reese Witherspoon’s chin and Beyonce’s wigs and Angelina Jolie’s veins and Blake Lively’s nose job and implants. That sh-t is a part of life, famous or un-famous, and Renee’s old face made her a major movie star and a very wealthy woman. You gotta dance with the face that brung ya! I tend to think it takes profound unhappiness and insecurity to take those random (and yes, hurtful) comments to heart and go and dramatically change your face THIS much. And I always thought her career took a hit after she A) made some bad career moves and B) dropped away by choice.

Anne Hathaway in Wes Gordon at the UK ‘Interstellar’ premiere: matronly or lovely?

FFN_FLYUK_Intersteller_UKPrem_102914_51570740

Here are some photos from last night’s Insterstellar premiere in London. It just occurred to me yesterday, as I was covering Anne Hathaway’s Telegraph interview, that some of these actors might be aiming for Oscar nominations. Annie clearly is. Jessica Chastain probably wouldn’t mind, but she’s not going to go all Hathaway for a nomination. And Matthew McConaughey? Alright alright alright.

As for the fashion, I’m trying to decide if the London styles are better or worse than the LA premiere looks. I kind of think London had the better style overall, but I still love to nitpick, so let’s get to it. Annie is wearing Wes Gordon with Charlotte Olympia platform heels. I feel like this is an Angelina Jolie-esque look, right? Angelina has been skewing more conservative lately, she loves a good sleeve and a boxy waist, and she loves dark metallics. If only this Wes Gordon dress was more sacky, then it would totally be a Jolie look. As it is… I kind of think this is too matronly on Annie. She’s only 31! Something nice: her makeup is much better here than at the LA premiere. And I like the emerald earrings (also a Jolie-esque touch). Also: Annie has a great mani, if you can make it out.

FFN_FLYUK_Intersteller_UKPrem_102914_51570702

FFN_FLYUK_Intersteller_UKPrem_102914_51570701

As for Chastain, her dress is Saint Laurent. I feel like she’s worn this dress or a version very close to it recently. Maybe at Cannes this year? I guess I’m remembering Chastain in that lovely violet Elie Saab in Cannes, although that look was WORLDS better than this Saint Laurent. Her boobs look weird in this gown and she’s carrying herself like she’s knocked up.

FFN_FLYUK_Intersteller_UKPrem_102914_51570694

Matthew brought his wife Camila Alves, who rocked a hot white pantsuit with a built-in cape. I don’t have the ID on this. Maybe it’s Dolce & Gabbana (the McConaughey family wears a lot of D&G), but I doubt it. This is one of the best looks I’ve seen on Camila in a while. Usually her style is kind of… glossy beauty queen. Not on this carpet!

Jennifer Aniston’s possible Oscar contender ‘Cake’ finally finds a distributor

wenn21694147

Jennifer Aniston had the difficult task of promoting her latest film, Cake, during the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The difficulty was that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had just gotten married. Aniston solved her PR problem by wearing a see-through top with no bra and getting her publicist to encourage lots and lots of Oscar talk. Cake got decent reviews at TIFF and People Mag (and other outlets) dutifully claimed that Aniston could be a legit Oscar contender this year. The problem? Cake didn’t pick up an American distributor at TIFF. More than a month passed, and still no distributor. What happened next is very interesting:

After the dark comedy Cake set tongues wagging at Toronto about Jennifer Aniston’s performance, there has been speculation that the film’s makers would capitalize on that momentum by putting the movie out before year’s end to qualify for Oscar consideration. Cinelou Films’ producers Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon have launched a new prestige arm in Cinelou Releasing, and they have set Cake as their first film. The pic will have a one-week qualifying run in December before rolling out in January. Canton, Kristin Hahn and Ben Barnz produced with Solomon.

“When my life and producing partner Ben Barnz and I first read Cake just fourteen months ago, we knew we had to go to Jennifer Aniston. It was the most obvious un-obvious choice – she’s mega-talented, but we’ve never seen the whole range of her extraordinary comic and dramatic abilities showcased in one role,” said director/EP Daniel Barnz.

Cinelou Releasing will launch up to four films over the next year, and you can belatedly add this to all of the rising distribution companies that made statement transactions at Toronto. The label has a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to handle international distribution for six of its films over the next three years. “We congratulate Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon on their new company,” said Warner Bros. International Distribution president Veronika Kwan Vandenberg. “We look forward to our upcoming international collaborations with them beginning next year with Cake.”

“Having a U.S. distribution arm was always part of our strategy to be in control of the creative, marketing and financial results of our films,” said Solomon. “We were very pleased with how Cake turned out and are excited about all the opportunities the film presents on multiple levels…Cinelou was formed to produce brave, bold and interesting films that both challenge and showcase talent.”

Said Canton: “We’re very proud and excited that our new distribution banner will allow Cake to be released with the same passion and commitment that went into making the film.”

[From Deadline]

This is interesting on two levels. One level, the level that people are reacting to right now, is that Aniston is making a play for an Oscar campaign. Aniston and her people want to launch something centered around her performance. Will she end up getting a nomination? Doubtful. She might end up with a Spirit Award nomination though. The other level of interest is what was happening behind the scenes to even get this film distributed in America. It honestly sounds like NO ONE wanted to distribute it at all and Cinelou had to pull their new distribution arm together within the last month, just to push Cake… and Jennifer Aniston.
