Two years ago, Angelina Jolie tested positive for the BRCA1 gene and she opted to have a double mastectomy, so that she wouldn’t get breast cancer. She knew that at some point, she would also have to get her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. In an op-ed to The New York Times, she decided to wait to have the latter that done. It’s an easier procedure physically, but a tougher one emotionally. When a woman gets that done, it forces her into early menopause and she also loses the ability to ever give birth again.
Then two weeks ago, she got a call that pushed up her procedure. Her blood tests came back showing she might be in the early stages of ovarian cancer. She flew to the doctor who took care of her mom and got the procedure done.
She was able to keep her uterus because Uterian cancer does not run in her family.
She came forward with her prevention surgeries so other women can know what she went through and know they are not alone. She also wants to let them know there are other options that a woman can choose from if they have to make that choice. They need to ask their doctors what those options are.
Men and women should read her NYT Op-Ed because it is something everyone should know about. It is written from a real person’s view and not a medical one. We are people and not doctors, and sometimes we need to hear from someone who is going through it and not someone who was taught about it. Not that doctors are bad, it just helps to hear from someone who has been through it.
We know that Brad Pitt can act, and now sadly we are finding out that he can’t sing. On Saturday night at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Mr Angelina Jolie sang the name of star from the movie he produced, Selma. You see, David Oyelowo’s last name is hard to pronounce. So Benjamin Button decided to put it to song and now we all know how to say it.
Even though his singing voice might not have won us over, his creativity to teach us how to say David Oh-yellow-oh was. Therefore making us suffer through his voice, worth it.
Angelina Jolie has pulled out of doing press for Unbroken because she has Chickenpox. Something that was hard for her to do because she loves this movie so much.
Personally, I don’t get why the mother of six who also tours the world, never got the vaccine. I don’t have any kids and barely travel like she does and I got it.
If I didn’t get the shot and one of my kids was the one who gave it to me, I always said I would put that child up for adoption. So I wonder which one of her bunch gave it to her? Unlike me, I am sure she won’t get rid of the offender. To be honest, I wouldn’t dump that kid at the firehouse, I just joked that I would.
BTW I wonder if she is hoping she gave it to Amy Pascal yesterday when the two ladies had an awkward encounter after the leaked Sony emails.
Brad Pitt was on Funny or Die‘s Between Two Ferns and Zach Galifianakis was tough on the actor who normally gets it so easy. The Hangover star made Benjamin Buttons feel like he had a hangover when he played the Friends theme for him. And that was just one of the many times he put the Inglourious Basterd in his place.
So did Tyler Durden learn anything from Fight Club? Yes, and you just have to see what!
We know Brad Pitt can act, but did you know he could breakdance too? He can! Yesterday on The Tonight Show, we found out he got moves that are so bitchin’, he could be in Breakin’ 3 with no prep work. In fact, Jimmy Fallon wasn’t that bad either and he could star along side him. Then there can be a rap battle in it with Justin Timberlake. How fresh would that be? Let’s make that happen.
Dame Angelina Jolie was awarded the Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George by Queen Elizabeth today. She was given the honor for her work against rape in war zones and services to UK foreign policy.
According to Daily Mail, her husband Brad Pitt and their six kids were also there but were not photographed.
Who would’ve thought that the woman who kissed kissed her brother at the Oscars and wore her then husband’s blood around her neck would be given such an honor by the Queen of England, but she was. You know what, she deserves it. She uses her position for good and say what you want about her, but that is extremely honorable. You have to respect her for the positive work that she does. Just like Her Royal Majesty did by making her a Dame.

Ever since we heard that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married, we have wanted to know what her gown looked like. Well today, People released a photo of it from the front and Hello! showed it from behind. The back of the dress, that was tailored by Luigi Massi, is more important because he sewn in colorful designs from her six kids. That special touch makes this dress a one of a kind and more beautiful than any gown I’ve seen in a really long time.
When it comes to the Brangelina Bunch they look beautiful and happy. Why shouldn’t they be this a joyous event they have all been waiting years for! Here’s to hoping this is one of the Hollywood couples that actually makes it. I think they will survive the test of time. What about you?
After dating for 9 years and parenting five children (Maddox was adopted before they started dating), Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally said I do. The two were married this Saturday in her mother’s home country of France. Their six kids have wanted their parents to get married for years, so they played a big part in the nuptials. According to AP the actress’ oldest sons, Maddox and Pax, walked her down the aisle while Zahara and Vivienne threw petals down it. Their other two daughters, Shiloh and Knox, served as the ring bearers.
The small civil ceremony, attended by friends and family, was presided over by a California Judge who issued their marriage license. That’s one way to keep the judge quiet.
Good for them for keeping their big day a secret, unlike his first wedding that was all about the fanfare.
Brad Pitt and his fiancee attended the premiere of her movie, Maleficent, in Hollywood tonight and it was a night that won’t be soon forgetting. Not only because they had a great date night without the 6 kids, but because he was allegedly attacked by a fan. According to KTLA, 25-year-old Vitalii Seduik jumped over barrier while the couple were signing autographs. At first he hugged the Fight Club star before he allegedly hit him in the face. Security jumped in and held him down until the police came to take him away.
So who is Vitalii Seduik? According to TMZ, we have seen him before. Remember when Will Smith slapped a Ukarian reporter on the red carpet? It’s that guy. Hollywood should put a restraining order on him that he can’t get within 25′ of a celebrity because stuff like that isn’t funny.
Angelina Jolie is normally looks perfect whenever she walks the red carpet, but tonight she had a little ding in her armor. Actually, she has some extra white powder on the bottom of her face and uneven foundation on her forehead. So unless one of her 6 kids did her up for the premiere of The Normal Heart, someone is going to get yelled out and will be looking for a new job.
