IUC World Exclusive: Brangie’s Desperate Attempt to Avoid Going Bust – “Engagement”

Posted on April 16th, 2012 by HisHighness in IUC:Bits, IUC:Entertainment, IUC:Exclusive

The recent “engagement” announcement was a desperate attempt to avoid seeing the Brangie brand collapse, according to two sources close to the notorious couple. “Their star has dwindled the last year,” one source told IUC. “They needed something to generate the press they used to get. So they decided to go with the engagement thing. isbrangiereallyengaged It was all pre orchestrated, hoping to turn it into loads of media attention to revive their brand. The couple is a major brand and are worth millions together. That’s a primary reason why they stay together. If they split they’d be worth pennies.”
Another source close to the couple said “Brad and Angie don’t win Oscars and they don’t receive the kind of money for making films they used to. Studios look at them as being has-been. They are praying that the engagement ring revives everything. I wish them luck.” Developing…

    Thanks for writing this out of riddle format, Ian. This is rather innocous for all involved. There’s more to this story and the “why” of the engagement as we were delving into with this morning’s posts on the NBA thread. What is suggested there would more than explain his parents over-the-top ‘walks of support’ for her in recent months.

    long time lurker – first time question: Kate seems to have an inside track to Ian, but i looked at the twitter posts she referenced in the other thread and they didn’t seem like clues to me. And i’m not sure i understand Ian’s developing comments as the posts don’t seem to continue after that?? Am i missing something?

    Great job the those cryptic clues by the way. They never make sense to me. But sometimes i wonder if the posters here don’t try to fit the clue after the fact to make it seem like Ian was right all along?

    Thanks. Back to lurking :-)

    They both look old and haggard. AOL is pushing the engagement story. People get engaged everyday so making a big deal out of two lying cheaters getting engaged is desperate.
    Their owners just need to accept the fact that they are has beens. Except for the loons of course.
    They crammed themselves down our gullets to many times.

    Do they really believe that they are still superstars ? Are they not able to analyze why their movies flop ? The movies don´t flop because they are superstars. The movies flop because the public doesn´t find them good enough. At the same time as AJ and BP have got older so have their public. Their public isn´t between 15 to 20 years anymore. The public wants something else than to se Angelina chasing someone with a gun.

    Do they own a mirror ? In one of all the houses they own I guess they have one. Don´t they see how they look ? Dirty clothes, dirty hair. Brad think he can go outside in the black onsie because he still believes in his own hype and that people will love him whatever he wears. Angelina sometimes have beautiful dresses on the RC but she can´t wear them because of her anorectic body.

    Don´t they understand that people doesn´t respect them when they drag the six children all over the world several times a month. Even if they don´t read papers or magazines they must see the covers when they drive to Mc Donald´s.

    Why doesn´t people in their surrounding tells them they can´t always be drugged or drunked at every puplic event. It would be so interesting to know how the kids everyday life looks like. That is the only thing I care about today. If they are busted I hope someone will feed the children.

    As I can´t find any advanced words to say what I think about them I say: They are disgusting and I don´t feel sorry about them. Normaly I think it´s sad when people doesn´t succeed with what they are doing in life but they have never had a fortune to blow away on drugs and private jets.

    Thank you Ian, this explains a lot. They can’t affort to lose income considering their lavish and decadent lifestyle and with the economy being as it is, their moneys can’t be earing much as investments either. Angie’s expiration date as a game character heroine ( Laura Croft) is now , she has aged much beyond her years from starvation, drugs, alcohol, and devient acts; who would believe this frail, broken, vein popping woman to be a strong heroine? In SALT running scenes she was pathetic and sad appearing, not a strong spy action heroine. The flipperlike flopping of those bare feet and hands waving, the skeletal body, the over the top acting….was sad to watch. I found myself pitying her at times, for what she’s become when she had so very much promise in the start of her success’ . So….money is their god and they have six children who live eititled lives with servents, world travel, tutors, nannies, cooks, bodyguards, maids…..that has to cost A LOT! So their solution was A PROMISE RING….and the loons went wild….hahahaha, sorry, but it’s hilarious actually.

    no inside track, it was just a simple question, I was a little concerned about the vulgar photo so I questioned it, Ian assured me it was all part of a big clue, simple as that. When I began going through the Twitter it was obvious some were CL and some made no sense except to the riddle. Since it applied to that I assume he wants us to use it or he would have told me . Party is on track, it is connected somehow. Many times my post are tongue in cheek, very hard for me to take them serious anymore. I joke about them, but do not often say how I really feel about them because it is irrelevant. Angus, Brad, both, naked watching the NBA. what engagement? LOL

    OK I don’t know where to post this…looks like we’re on to another thread. A thought on…

    April 5, 2012 post:
    An A-list actor recently admitted to a close friend that he tried to choke his partner last year during a major spat after his partner accused him of cheating on her with one of her closest friends. The pair reconciled after the A-lister agreed to private counseling and anger management. Developing

    Again, I think these no tag blinds are doubles. Agree this is JD on the surface. IMO if you put “one of her closest friends” in quotes it’s the couple. “FRIENDS”…who else. It fits with the twitter comments.

    Hindsight is everything sometimes. I had something occur last year where in hindsight I could see exactly how it played out. I’m aware when I’m guessing after the fact that I could try too hard to make it fit. Except after the fact I’m usually not trying as hard. Ideas just comes up ping, ping, ping sometimes especially with so many posters contributing ideas and if another idea is eliminated. LOL, who knows if the after the fact guesses are correct unless Ian gives a nod to one of us. Thanks for your thoughts. A relevant observation.

And I didn’t have to read through riddles to know how Ian plays you like a fiddle.

    Has been? Brad just came off of his most critically acclaimed year. WWZ he is up for 20M against 20% of the gross profit. And Maleficent, Angelina is getting her asking price of 19M for.

    That’s why when people do an analysis of true blue movie stars left, by the actually talking to industry experts, Brad and Angelina are always mentioned as being the few left.

    Poor, butt hurt Ian. Needs a dollar so he can actually buy a clue. Here’s a few. It’s Col. Mustard, in the library with the candle stick.

I am looking forward to Brad and Ange getting married and becoming true blue parents, and a true blue married couple. I can’t wait to see them parenting themselves, doing their own laundry, cooking their own meals, cleaning their own messes up. Let’s see if they have the talent to be true blue human beings and take care of themselves without a dozen bystanders, at their beck and call :roll:

I always read his twitter and when he went to NYC for Passover it began to sound like he was partying to hard and not making any sense. That should have been my first clue. Ian always has a reason.

    LOL , how can this be a serious engagement. Does anyone really believe Angelina would wear a diamond that was less than Jen’s lol. no, if she did it would either be no diamond. a different kind of stone altogether, or another symbol. A promise for the future. Brad began with, the kids said, Daddy buy mommy a ring, and I said, I will, I promise, I promise, remember that… lol these chumps think they have been so smart playing this game, teasing the public. Are they , aren’t they? Brad knows that the allure is people not knowing, and as soon as they announce a wedding date, excitement rises, but once that wedding is over, so is the excitement for those who care. The only other way to kill their career, is do a film together. They are doing that also, aren’t they? lol Pretty soon we can call them Goldie and Kurt, they can just show up to present, and we can wait for the kids to become the ones stripping down and doing love scenes and stealing partners.

    I don’t even know if there is a ballplayer. I m just referring to the person lying on the bed, nude with the genitals hanging out from the back. Then the photo where Ian is in with someone licking his face, (right) lots of ebony and ivory, I don’t know if Ian is saying someone is sleeping with men, or a man that has been transgendered, if that is Angie or that is Brad. I tend to think the reference to the names is more to the likeness of the situation. Can not be cheating because they are not committed , love child, or just someone is caught . Something went down at a New York hotel, and all of these clues are part of it. Reminds me of when they rented the stripper together and she paid more attention to Angie, in the threesome, Brad was jealous so he went and got his own, a male stud. I suppose when you are just numb from years of drinking, and having to pretend it takes much more to get it on. Watching all these new stars replace them must be a bit unsettling. They are not in the same place they were even a year ago. I think the awards made that clear, their numbers , and the rise of these young stars, which is all anyone really cares about anymore. That stardom is what they use to have. Brad is almost 50, he will never reach that again, although he will always be a huge star, and together they will keep sinking. jmho. They should focus on their children. Hard to do when something is eating away at you. Scandal. Legacy. He was what? lol

    Maybe they had to pretend an engagement because of the children. I think at least three of the six children have troubles that need appointments to psychologists. If the children reads on the internet that their parents are engaged it can actually mean something for them. The kids are not old enough to know it´s all fake. As they must be worried about AJ´s and Brad´s behavior perhaps they need a sign of togetherness from their parents.

    JMO, but if this is the way we are going, I would say BOTH had to be there for it to be any real scandal. Like Kate says, who cares if she was cheating. She said they had an open relationship. So, I agree, Patty Anne, BOTH would be involved. And that would be enough to turn off their most zealous fans I would think.

    But that’s funny, he didn’t know about the engagement until the rest the world found out. But now some inside source told him it’s about the re-energizing the brand. Is it the same source that when he wrote his book had wrong kids and dates . Rememeber Shiloh was born in France in 2008. That’s why his book was in the bargain bin for $.99 after a week in the US. He doesn’t know them or have any inside source. As lainey says “they keep it tight”. I think there are some smart posters on here that has his number but keep up with the game because it’s entertaining and an outlet from reality.

    I’m having a hard time getting on board with the engagement being a way to deflect from a sex and drug scandal because I don’t think anything could deflect from something like that when you have 6 young children. Not that I don’t think they have a kinky sex life but I think they are very adept at keeping it on the DL. I believe what Ian posted about this being a business decision to shore up the brand because that makes sense. I think they have a lot of money but they also have a lot of expenses. She hasn’t had a highly paid movie role since the tourist in 2010. He’s worked non stop for the past couple of years but they are in the midst of a massive renovation of the chateau in France (given the weakness of the USD to Euros that has to be bleeding them almost dry unless they have money socked away outside the US), upkeep on several homes and the cost of raising their children with full time security, nannies, tutors, housekeepers, secretaries and whoever else they employ and let’s not forget the private jets. I would think a good portion of their earnings goes to managers, publicists and attorneys as well, not to mention taxes. Brad looks like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders and I think at least some of that is the financial stress of supporting a family of eight in an opulent lifestyle. I believe they will get married sooner or later, for better or worse. I don’t see how they can get out of doing it now that they’ve made such a big fuss and I’m sure they know that being the calculating manipulators they both are. Maybe I’m looking at this too simplistically from the perspective of an ordinary person but it’s kind of how I see it.

    I don’t think it is a deflection either because it puts them in a position to fall further. I think they were advised or ordered to do so though, and I doubt it will make a difference in the long run. Possibly those who advised them think so. If they really wanted to marry for themselves or their children they could have done so.

    I’m wondering if this is just a deal they made with the tabloids. The tabloids write the scripts and Brangelina acts it out.. perhaps in exchange for a bit of real life privacy. Is that how Ian knows about this? Ian has a connection with the tabloids and it is they who are tipping Ian off as to what’s going to be printed in advance. Is that how the game is played? Celebrities put on a show in exchange for privacy and publicity and the whole time the public is clueless as to what is really going on in their private lives. This is all just smoke in mirrors.

    I could believe they were told or advised to do it. As Payal pointed out angie didn’t look exactly happy as she was going into the Roosevelt hotel, certainly not like a woman happily engaged to the love of her life. I wonder who she was meeting at the hotel.

    I think that Angie lost it when people made fun of her at the Oscars. The only way to deflect from that was to play the engagement card. They are saying it took a year to design the ring to detract from it’s real purpose – deflection from the leg bomb. And to have to revealed while they are on a musuem outing (pretentious much?) was to replace the leg bomb with a more cultured image of Angie. Except it’s not working. No one cares. These are not young people just starting out. She’s almost 40 and he’s almost 50, have been together 7 years and have 6 children. If they really wanted to get married they would get married. This “promise ring” is extremely lame for people of their age with chidlren.

    just remember mj went broke and he did not have 6 kids and lots of nannies and personal, with peepaw buying homes and renovating it as well as private jet and all the travelling he is going through money like nobodies business. money means very little today and his star is fading as well as hers. yes the films made money but how much was paid out for expenses and the cinemas cut before the investors got their share, it is always the bottom line that counts, because yes i can make a million a year but after buying stock and paying all the other expenses i have not got much left and then u must invest for a rainy day as well.
    peepaw and jolie are not the brightest cookies in the jar so never say never because their roles in movies are getting smaller and so is their payments and those kids are still young teenagers cost more. the younger stars are coming up and people are tired of the two of them last year we saw to much movies of peepaw and they where not very good, so yes they have money but remember u must still look to the future and what a million was worth 5 years ago is now nothing. jmo

    If you’ll recall the ambulance was called by a neighbor’s house as reported by the LA fire dept. That’s the house that is on Pitt’s compound and behind the gates. The gentleman was carried out on a stretcher about 15 minutes after the ambulance arrived. He was quite elderly,over 100, and he died not too long after. Brad bought his house from his estate shortly after his death.

    “Angelina failed to steal his heart even if she tempted him into her bed a few times when they were thousands of miles away on set. PS: Brad knows about this. She had to confess when the two men were in talks about doing a film together that the red carpets would be too awkward. The poor bumpkin fell for her ‘I’ve only ever slept with four men’ schtick and has since found out that she’s slept with most of Hollywood.”

    LOL. I like that the Washington Post put this in the Entertainment section.

    Actress/director Angelina Jolie named special envoy for UN refugee agency, a big promotion
    By Associated Press,

    GENEVA — After a decade of promoting refugee causes around the world, Angelina Jolie herself has been promoted.
    The United Nations refugee agency has elevated the Hollywood star from being a goodwill ambassador to a special envoy, a role that will see her represent the organization to governments and diplomats.

    It is the first time the U.N. refugee agency has named a special envoy, said its spokesman Adrian Edwards. Elsewhere in the global body such posts are usually reserved for career diplomats or retired politicians.

    “Her work does go substantially beyond what we would typically see as being the normal role of a goodwill ambassador,” Edwards told reporters in Geneva. “I don’t think you need a rocket scientist to see the benefits that she is bringing in terms of the attention that she is getting for the plight of the world’s displaced.”

    Jolie has jetted the world on behalf of the organization over the past ten years, making high-profile visits to refugee camps in Iraq, Haiti and Pakistan, among other places.

    Apart from her time, Jolie has also given large personal donations to the organization, which relies entirely on voluntary contributions from governments, companies and individuals.

    “She has donated substantially to refugees,” said Edwards, noting that the actress/director won’t receive any money for her role. “There is to my knowledge absolutely no connection between any donation of money and this role.”

    Jolie’s new position will focus on the complex crises that result in the mass displacement of people, such as in Afghanistan and Somalia. In addition, on special occasions she will represent the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres.

    “That can mean conveying messages to governments. It can mean conveying messages to other people and partners that we work with,” said Edwards.

    UNHCR works to help almost 35 million refugees and internally displaced people around the world. It was established to aid millions of Europeans displaced by World War II and has since become one of the world’s most prominent humanitarian organizations.

    Bohomoth makes this statement in the article about their finances: “Now, as for their finances after they marry, they will remain separate. Angelina has always been terrible with money. When her mother Marcheline Bertrand was alive, she used to look after her daughter’s money and in return Ange would pay her a third of her income”

    So she was giving 1/3 or her income to her mom and 1/3 to charity? Or is the 1/3 to charity what she was actually giving to her mom? I believe that ‘1/3 to charity’ was reported before her mother passed away. Maybe her mother suggested she give it to charity to avoid the waste.

    She did adopt alone and I believe she had to. He would have had to adopt later. Not sure about how the mjp thing played out. It’s hard to tell when it all gets blurred in the media w/inaccuracies and opinions. His m/z “adoption” initially was a name change with the intention to adopt, at least I think that’s how it was reported. That may be the process. I don’t recall ever seeing anything more which doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. The celebration of the pjp adoption at the courthouse w/extended family occurred a year after she adopted him. I understand that an international adoption is finalized in the US a year later which would have corresponded to that celebration date. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t adopt him at the same time.

    The are selectively revealing about their family when it suits their needs especially when they need to sell a movie. Interestly, there’s been little or nothing said about the adoptions after the initial reporting. It’s kind of strange that Pitt couldn’t just say “yes” during that Charlie Rose interview. But, who knows and we never will for sure unless a child decides to spill.

    The engagement is for publicty for some reason and for whatever reason they needed to announce it now and on Friday the 13th (I think that’s Brad-speak, lol). They (the whole team) knows that this can be drawn out for months in the mags and lots of headlines. If it was to deflect from another story it was to redirect the media’s attention to the engagement and away from the other story hoping no one would pay attention to it especially if it was negative. Re-direction seems to be her forte, not that she’s so intelligent or good at it, but just because she’s been doing it all her life, imo.

    They could have just married privately and confirmed it later. Private, special, simple. They chose to have a high-profile public engagement for a reason. Just what is the reason…. Ian? more?

    Pax Thien to Officially be a Jolie-Pitt
    Angelina Jolie has filed papers to the L.A. County Superior Court on april 16th, to change the name of her latest adopted child from Pax Thien Jolie to Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt.
    It seems TMZ has gotten copies of the papers & they state the request to change Pax’s last name so it will contain the last name of her partner, Brad Pitt.

    @Patty Anne:
    All the stones are dark and dull. For a quarter to a million dollars the ring should be blinding us. I had a business colleague once who had a similar style ring with the oblong stone and the side stones. It wasn’t as big (though more than big enough) but it was gorgeous. It sparkled and reflected the light and was simply dazzling. Does she suck the light out of diamonds too?

    I wondered. All their photos seem to have been “for sale” at the right price. I remember the Zip line photos with the kids, and I thought what a jerk they are. Those kids were so excited! Play time, fun new thing, and with both mum and dad….but how many photogs chased them around the zip lines? How akward did Brad appear to be in handling a toddler on a zip line? Angie? Smiling and posing……they’d take photos of their souls if the price was high enough.@rushdog:

    Well the whole family is now on the Galapagos Island . I guess for some fun and relaxation before Cannes and filming their new movies. They are reporting that one wedding picture can bring in as much as $2mil. Wow they still get a lot of attention after 7 years together; that’s almost unheard of in HW, just an engagement announcement generated over 2,000 articles on Google, every Daytime/ Nightime news and talk shows talked about the engagement . People Magazine ripped up their planned cover story to put BA on their latest cover. In other news, I heard JA and JT are breaking up. JT wants his space and now looking for a place of his own in LA. If this true, I’m sad because I was hoping he was really the one for JA.

    I have also gay friends who have children. Two of them have used surrogates mother who at the same time are their lesbian friends. Another male friend of mine was married and got two children before he divorced and came out of the closet. These kids are as happy as any other kids. My friend who was married, his kids are grown up by now and he got his first grandchild a couple of months ago. They see each other a lot and as I have met them together on a regular basis for twenty years I know non of them have any issues because my friend is gay. My gay friends are great. They have a special way to care about other people. Even my husband likes them. The men visit our summerhouse every summer and we have a lot of fun and a lot of other things to discuss. I´m proud of being their friend. There are not so many parents who have such a good relation with their kids as they have.

    I missed this post earlier. So if he didn’t adopt Pax at the time they changed his name I would doubt he adopted him at a later time, though it is possible. The same for Zahara and Maddox. It seems strange to me that he would sign papers to be financially responsible for children that are not his, either biologically or through adoption. Why would someone do that? If he hasn’t adopted them then what legal rights would he have if they should ever split? I don’t know the answer to that; perhaps Togi or LizE could enlighten on that.

    Thanks for that post. I am an intermittent reader of lainey mostly like her event coverage. I’ve always looked at her more as a gossip fist-pumper rather than a loon. I think she fist-pumps for the Brand because they are so good at getting away with their publicity tactics. Glad to see there are writers who will say the leg incident was a f/u. And she more than supports the suggestion that this photo op was a set up. With the exception of the second to the last photo in the posted series, I think Jolie looks very stiff and her smile a bit forced. And the catty remark for the day – the lighting picks up the gray in her hair at the at the center part.

    I’ve got a big thought process going on right now which was kicked into high gear by something that rolled through my head while driving. Sounds vague I know, still sorting it out. One thing about posting here that’s been good for me is that it’s a place for me to get these thoughts out of my head. And I can’t type worth sh*t today, lots of transposed letters I had to go back and fix. Weird.

    Ian’s twitter seems to indicate he’s busy w/CL and that must be where the greedy lawyers comment came in and why the rest of this story may not be posted yet.

    Of course i don´t know why Brad signed these papers but back then perhaps they were still in love and he loved the children. Shilooh was born by then and I believe Brad still had some moral feelings and that he would treat all the children in the same way or Angelina maybe forced him to do it. But I do believe he loves the children and if he wasn´t so worned out today he would show it . And it´s possible he did it to gain more sympathy and publicity. If I was in the saituation I probably have done it in a similar way. Especially since Angelina has talked about how her dad didn´t support his family enough.

    I think that if I felt so emotionally attached to the children that I would give them my name and financial support I would probably also want to adopt them. Unless she wouldn’t allow it knowing that she could always hold it over his head that if he left her he would never see those children. It seemed to me a stupid thing to sign off on financial support without also obtaining some legal rights to the children. I’d like to think brad is not that stupid so maybe he did (surely, he had legal advice). Of courseI could be wrong and he might have been willing to do anything just to please her back then; we don’t really know and likely never will.

    @Guest2:
    It´s always hard to understand why people do things in one way instead of another. If this was in my home country, Sweden, to marry and then adopt would be a long process. First they must be married for three years before, in this case the only father they know, is allowed to adopt. In three years a lot of thing could happen. From my point of view, if I was the mother I would want the “father” to promise to take care of the children if I for example died by accident or illness, as if he was the legal father. And if Brad did this deal with Angelina she probably had to promise him the same legal rights as a biological father even if they would separate. He can´t pay for the children’s welfare if he not is allowed to see them. And I guess this agreement is written by lawyers from bot sides.

    They could have a complete different reason for an agreement like this but it seems reasonable to me.

    @Dream Yes, I also believe they love their kids. Angelina loves them in the way she is capable to love and Brad in his way. Even if Brad has a strange way to treat the women in his life I think his love for the children is as real as someone else´s love for a child.

    Posting this because of the remaining relevant subject. Recent Madonna interview. It’s hard to maintain status at the top. She should get some credit for doing so for so long. Her new CD made a debut at #1 and then dropped with the largest second week drop in history. I would guess her diehard fans bought the CD and maybe not many else. I didn’t buy it and that’s the first one in a long time. I like her music because the dance music is high energy and good for working out, but I think her ballads are usually her best. Her new music didn’t connect w/me. Apparently Lourdes has been papped smoking.

  160. rushdog said on April 18th, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    I don’t think anyone would call Madonna a has-been but her star doesn’t shine as bright nor in the same way. Yet she is still followed/mobbed by the media, still has a strong fan base, continues to work and receives promotional opportunities. It’s hard to age in an industry in which most aspects focus on youth. Same with the Brand. Their star doesn’t shine quite as bright as it did even a couple of years ago and there have been some visable cracks in that shine in the last 12 months or so. Yet they are still followed/mobbed by the media, still have a fan base, continue to work and get promotional opportunities. To get what you want and remain relevant you have to play the game and I think that’s what at least some of the recent Brand maneuverings are about.

    As for the Brangelina engagement, my own theory is that Angie has been driven mad (madder?) by carbohydrate deprivation, and she’s forcing the marriage with sole purpose of getting to eat a piece of wedding cake in the one scenario that provides an acceptable break from her diet plan. Look for her to be rushed to the hospital due to glycemic shock on the wedding day. She will then get another tattoo, this time of a wedding cake slice on the inside of her left arm, which she will lick at fervently when she thinks no one else is looking.

    But hey, let’s all wish them the best, and start taking up a collection so we can buy them a food processor as a wedding gift. Count me in for .000000000000001 dollars.

    So KTS got into the Cannes lineup
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/cannes-film-festival-unveils-competition-lineup-2012-wes-anderson-david-cronenberg-us-presence-313859

    And Pitt got into The Counselor (note that Nick Wechsler produced Time Travelers Wife along with PlanB and Paula Mae Schwartz produced TOL along with PlanB. PMS is part of Chockstone Pictures that I mentioned in the previous post)
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/penelope-cruz-javier-bardem-the-counselor-314203
    McCarthy surprised his agents earlier this year with not a new book but a script, which was quickly picked up by producer Nick Wechsler and Paul Mae Schwartz.
    Scott then decided to make it his next project, bringing with him Michael Fassbender, with whom he had just finished Prometheus. Brad Pitt and Bardem also quickly hopped on the train.

    There is talk of Angelina Jolie playing the enigmatic love interest but it is unclear how the actress would balance Counselor with Disney’s Maleficent, which she is supposed to begin shooting June in England.

    iwasanon said on April 15th, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    Then I looked at Killing Them Softly(KTS). According to 2 articles on mubi KTS is not a definite yet for Cannes. Mar 23 article had it at 93% probability, but an Apr 5 article had it as a 3rd tier contender as a “Who Knows, Maybe”. April 19 is the announcement of the 2012 Cannes lineup

    So your comment above makes a lot more sense.
    “They were told (advised) to continue their “addiction” and were threatened as an incentive to stop their objections. So they did it their own way with a “promise for the future” (lol) by bringing out the ring.”

    Producers & distributors for KTS want this film at Cannes. Cannes committee needed something more than the TOL show they put on last year so this “engagement” was announced now to get the Cannes committee to put them on the list.

    Side note: One of the producers on Killing Them Softly, Chockstone Pictures, provided seed money for TOL and is a producer on The Counselor. So it also makes sense they’re pushing for “The Brand” to have roles in The Counselor to be associated with the hot actor of the moment, Fassbender.

No woman with any dignity, pride, or self-respect would have tolerated that jab. She should make Pitt go back and specify publicly that it is not a promise but an engagement, and announce that a date will be forthcoming.
    Loons, why don’t you go bug Jolie about this so that she gets Pittiot to do this and erase all doubt? If he is so committed to her, he should have no problem saying so. Don’t you think it’s a little odd that he used this language which would allow her to be mocked and ridiculed yet again? When is he going to support her?

    Pitt’s manager’s statement was curious. Maybe jolie leaked the engagement story to call positive attention to herself and he called his manager and said, whoa, get me out of this. Hence the “it’s a promise” statement. I don’t think it’s a matter of her not having self-esteem. I think it’s more of a power game they play with each other. Or that’s how it appears to me. I could be wrong. Who knows but, more importantly, who cares so long as they continue to reveal themselves for who they really are, a couple of self-serving, power-hungry famehos.

    What I don’t get is they say he’s been working on this for a year and after a year all he gives her is a promise. If he was working on this FOR A WHOLE YEAR it implies that he put a lot of time and effort in to it but yet after all that supposed time and effort all he can give her is a promise. If it was a real engagement that he worked on for a year wouldn’t he have been thinking about it’s purpose and intent and all he could come up with was that it is a PROMISE. If he was working on this for a year shouldn’t there be more to it then this…It doesn’t make sense.

    Great post. I think a lot of us have felt that Pitt disrespects his women in his narcissistic way. We may not like the way Angie treats her kids or the home life she supplies them with, but Pittiot ( like that name) is ever bit as responsible. In his arrogant way he’s turned the tables on his family and shown their lack of importance to HIS life with this comment. A “Promise” for pitty’s sake?!?! Six kids and he finally gives the Ho a Promise? Shame on both.@iwasanon:

    I’d read on a blog online that the Promise was made in December but that she wanted to wait to announce it publicly because ITLOBAH was out and she didn’t want that to overshadow her directorial debut….it might actually have helped!! Clearly these two are desperately looking for anything that will help them remain relevant in the public eye, even if they have to create faux scaniros.@Guest2:

    The movie’s been out of theaters for a long time so she could have announced it much sooner than Friday the 13th. She’s full of crap. I swear, one of these days she’ll try and sell us the Brooklyn bridge. A loon might actually try to buy it.

    So, if they are already in Cannes, and they arrived in the Galapagos Islands a couple of days ago, how long were they there? Did they travel all the way to South America for a day and a half or was it longer and their photogs needed time to get the pix out to the photo agencies? BS really must come back and give us an update on her family.

    Guest wrote:
    Still not the source — in fact, if Nikki Finke is the one saying this, then it is almost certainly a lie. This source document also states that the STUDIO (not cinemascore) is making these claims. In fact, Nikki Finke is really the only one making these claims, and she’s a longtime loon.

    this is why I bore you and other posters with my insistence on obtaining source data. Nearly everything said and printed about angelina voight is based on lies. This discussion started with the claim that a legitimate entertainment polling source had made an unbelievably favorable claim about Miss Voight. When questioned about the source data, the poster provided links, instead, to the credibility of the data source they were citing. When pressed further, they provided a second-hand claim, again without the source data. When finally pressed to provide the original data, the poster provides information proving that it was never cinemascore’s poll at all, but rather a well-known loon blogger who made this claim.

    So, for nearly four years now, Angie Voight’s camp has perpetrated the lie that over 60 percent of “Wanted’s” very successful opening was due to Voight being in the film. It has actually become part of the public domain now — like the fact that she allegedly gave 1/3 of her earnings to charity. However, if we keep pressing, we eventually get to the truth of the matter. In this case, it turns out to be yet another paid-off hack lying about Voight’s popularity.
    People always wonder why Voight gets away with the studios and TPTB not calling her out on her true box office, always putting the best possible spin on her projects, when anyone can see that the numbers are being whitewashed. This is exactly why. Because she and her cohorts lie, distort, and manipulate the truth until — by the time the real truth comes out — the lie (Wanted was so successful because of Voight) has already stolen the narrative.

    Guest wrote: Fail, loon. You really need to give this up. Once again, there is no citation for the CinemaScore “data.”
    What happened is this:
    1) Nikki Finke lied about these numbers being from CinemaScore in her original review.
    2) This is memorialized in a post copied from her blog at the time it was written. It is on this site in its entirety, and it clearly states that CinemaScore is the source for these numbers.
    3) Once that lie was brought to the attention of Entertainment Weekly (which “owns” the CinemaScore data), EW’s Legal was presumably brought in to “talk” to Nikki Finke. Or Nikki Finke just went back in and changed the data before she could get into legal trouble over it.
    4) Now Nikki Finke’s site has changed the review to more accurately reflect the fact that it is Finke’s opinion that Miss Voight was the draw for “Wanted” and that this opinion is not based on any polling data from CinemaScore.
    5) Meanwhile, all the review blogs had already integrated Finke’s original misinformation into their reviews of the movie.
    6) Since, to the best of my knowledge, Finke never made her lies public, these blogs would have no way of knowing they were quoting fraudulant data, and therefore, didn’t “fix” the reviews.
    You see, this is why so many of what you call “haters” simply don’t believe what we hear about spittnho, We’ve seen things like this happen way too often.

    You’re welcome. I know I irritate other posters sometimes because I absolutely will not give up insisting on source data. I know it gets old, but every single time I do it, the source data leads right back to Voight or one her paid cohorts. I had the same experience with a loon a couple weeks ago. The loon was insisting that Newsweek made an allegation about one of Voight’s “refugee” pictures. After about three pages of back and forth, the original citation was exposed and, once again, guess who made the original claim? That’s right. Not Newsweek, but Voight herself.
    You have to question everything you hear and read about these two, because nine times out of ten, they are spinning an event or action to their own benefit, and lies are being propagated to support their story.

    Hi Siska, I think people are starting to get tired of these two. A lot of comments on the different blogs are on the negative side. There’s nothing especially romantic or appealing about a middle aged couple who’ve lived together for 7 years, had three children out of wedlock and adopted three more to announce an engagement. It seems silly. JThey should just get married already and shut up about it. For crying out loud, brad looks like a grandfather.

    Jen sure has kept a low profile the past few weeks. She’s signed on for the Indie movie which could be good for her as she does well in dramatic roles. It doesn’t start filming until late summer. I hope we don’t have to wait that long to catch a glimpse of her. Did you see where she sold the NY apts at a loss? I wonder if she’ll buy another apartment in a more private building or just forget NY and stick to LA.

    @Guest2:

    Yup Guest2 Jennifer is on record saying this herself both in her GQ interview with Paul Rudd and her radio appearance on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

    Plus she bought the apartments in NY and decided to sell her Beverly Hills place before she and Justin started dating. She said about selling her LA place that it was “too much for one person”. So, now that she and Justin are a couple, and living together and have a few dogs between them, it shouldn’t be surprising that, as the NY Post mentioned in its report about the NY apartment sale, “her circumstances have changed”. Even combined, the NY apartments would have been relatively small, plus she alone chose them. Since they’ve gotten together they’ve looked at several bigger and more private places in NY together and maybe will buy there in the future if they can find a place where they aren’t so exposed to paparazzi and that is more suitable for the both of them. The Bel Air purchase is similarly explained. She always said she was purchasing again on the west coast and that this would remain her base. So, she and Justin picked the new place together and it isn’t as much of a downsize as she originally wanted because now it isn’t just her, but also Justin and their dogs, and who knows what their family plans are for the future?

I wish jen would come out for just a bit to dispel the tabloid rumors that she collapsed or is upset about the engagement. The 2012 Comedy Awards are May 6th and she’s nominated for Horrible Bosses so maybe we’ll see her then.

    I didn’t read about the tax increases but I’m guessing they’re very high in NYC and maybe that had something to do with selling the apts in NY so quickly.

    Hello. I have been lurking but not posting for whatever reason – I don’t know.

    I couldn’t pull up any of those links. Someone “sho’ don’t” want that info out, right? I did not know that applying it directing to the skin would get rid of skin cancer. I have heard, however, that the oil of it will cure cancer. I suppose one would drink the oil? (duh). That would sure get rid of the mucho money, misery-making chemo and radiation, wouldn’t it? And I would think it’s harder to control its manufacture than the hard drugs that TPTB can reap a fortune from.

    @Renee:
    My perception of them is that they’re committed to co-parenting the children. I think they love them but the interaction between parents and children does not appear warm or nurturing, at least not in photos. I think they have an arrangement that works for them and maybe they even love each other though I don’t see two happy people, especially brad. I don’t think they’re normal or have a normal life in any sense of the word. They live like uber wealthy nomads, traveling from country to country, their kids don’t go to a regular school, they’re pimped out for photo ops whenever they have movies to promote and they sell the private details of their lives for publicity. Normal people don’t acquire 5 children in 3 years, sell photos of those children to tabloids for millions of dollars, have 5 or 6 nannies to take care of them, bodyguards and whatever other help they may have. And, yes, I do think they toy with us, especially aj because I believe she reads everything that’s written about her on the web. I do believe she’s nuts. But that’s jmo.

    @Guest2:
    I agree that they do not have normal lives. How many people, especially with children, travel as often as they do. Military families usually move only every couple of years, and these children probably consider their private jet as home. The constant adjustment of time zones, climate, and different surroundings must be confusing. Personally, after a few weeks on the road, the only place I want is to be is in my home in my own bed and enjoying my own cooking. These children don’t know what normal is because they have never experienced staying in a place long enough to consider a place home.

    Whenever there are clusters of cancer patients, then usually one suspects dumping of chemical waste in that area. The deadly waste seeps into the water supply; or, it causes deadly fumes, usually undetectable that the unsuspecting public partakes.
    The Center for Disease Control headquarters should be notified. They will hopefully do the detective work to identify the source.

    Income tax is based on your gross salary for the year. Actually, California has a higher state tax than NY state. NYC has an additional tax of almost 4% based on income and how many days you resided in the city. Since we are filing for 2011, JA selling her property in 2012 wouldn’t effect her tax filing until 2013, not in 2012. Also, property tax is based on where you live, not income.

    Thanks, Guest2. I think you are right on all counts. I can’t think of any comparators in terms of parents and families. I have to think it will get harder and harder for them to maintain a particular image and lifestyle as the kids become older and vocal about their wants and needs. Could get interesting. Hopefully somewhere in their lives the kids have enough love and stability to support a healthy upbringing… And call me a blind optimist, but it can’t be 100 % all bad… And who has perfect parents!

    They are their children, not yours. So, you shouldn’t concern yourself with people that you don’t have access to what they do 24/7. I don’t comment on suri, violet, kingston, honor and the other celebrity kids because I don’t know what they do the other 300 days that I’m not privy to their lives from photos.

    Based on photos, I would I have thought Seal and Heidi had an Ideal family. Guess I was wrong. Cary Grant and his daughter would have been” Daddy Dearest” but, she adored / loved her father and still misses him today 25 years after his death. She also named her son after him.

    Just want to say hello to all of you. I read your comments and I agree with what you are saying. Today families can look in many ways. Two mothers with children, two fathers with children, a mix of siblings and half siblings. Parents and their exes see their children together with new partners and most of us think it´s a good thing and almost normal. The Jolie Pitt family isn´t a normal family in any way. I also hope the kids get some love and that they will able to feel love in the future. Beside this I´m just waiting for something to happen. How about Angelina´s plagiarism case ? Will both Brad and Angelina be in the cast of “The Councelor”? What will Jennifer do until next fall ? Her planned movies seems to be filmed later than expected. And when will Ian give us a new “vitamin injection” (I mean clue) ?

    50 or more years ago, it was common for manufacturing companies to just drive their toxic waste out of town and dump it off the side of the road. Now, as these towns have grown, people are living in houses that were built right on top of the toxic waste! Good luck proving it tho. Some people have done the hard work of tying it down to a particular company/corporation, but usually they have changed names/ownership several times, and it’s hard to pin it on anyone. As with most things, it’s our children who suffer from our past mistakes :(

    I was reading that too. Not sure how accurate TMZ is in their reporting though. They say she’s getting married on the island of Crete which is 230 miles south of Greece. Crete is in Greece, it’s the largest of the Greek islands. It’s also the birthplace of the mythical god, Zeus. It would be a romantic place to get married. I don’t know if this is true, but if it is, then I guess it would explain the engagement and the rumors of brad proposing at Christmas. OK mag is reporting that brangie had a big fight and the wedding is off; maddox asked who’s jen.

    Long time no “see” everyone! Just wanted to know your thoughts, word on the street is that the engagement ring is fake, a knock-off. Anyone else hearing that? Guess it would be very hard to tell since they make them so well and all now and it’s not like anyone is going to be able to authenticate it really…guess the jeweler is very good fakes and they wanted something they couldn’t really afford…well, Brad that is. Guess it’s not that he didn’t have the money, but that he wanted something more that what he WANTED to pay, so I am not sure if Angelina knows even…what have you all heard?

    I would love to know too. What I have heard is that Justin and Jennifer are doing just fine and there really isn’t anything to report. Jenn always knew that Brad would at least get engaged to Angelina as it was their “fall back” plan, so I don’t know that she cares much about it…other than to say that she’s going to attend the wedding – mostly because Angelina (if they ever do actually have a big ceremony) will want to be the center of attention.
    Also, I heard that if they do have a large ceremony Angelina’s going to be milking the kid’s participation in the ceremony…make it be very family friendly – perhaps Jack Black will preside???

    Wouldn’t it be funny if the ring were fake and all these “experts” were appraising it at $250k to $1M. If brad really did give her a fake bauble and she has it appraised I think he’d better go into hiding. There’s also the possibility that brad didn’t give her anything and she cooked up this scheme with the jeweler. Birds of a feather, as they say. So many possibilities to ponder.

    The skinny is that he and Angie had been regularly hooking up in a NYC hotel room for some wild monkey sex. I guess he was the one she’d missed before. Also Carmelo was forced into marrying Lala when it was discovered he had an illegitimate child and Lala told Carmelo, “Marry me now or I’ll smear you with this in the press”…..he folded and they married, but from what I gather he’s a serial cheater. http://bossip.com/357331/say-it-aint-so-carmelo-anthony-has-a-secret-love-child-in-nyc12006/@elephant:

    I can understand why Jen fans not liking Aj with the rumor surround how Aj involve with Bp when he still married to Jen..but it’s been so long.and all the parties seem happy..maybe they want to erase their saint history clean by blaming Jen for the reason Aj get reputation as home wrecker..he..he..
    So silly how we still get suck on this stuff..they even make up story of Jen future wedding to get leg of this triangle..

    I hope Jen will attend the award show..but I doubt it..she seem very immerse on her home Reno..maybe when Rock of Ages premiere party..she might accompany jtx..

    From Jen quote on the Mclaire mag Aussie..she has a very bad experience when she was 30s..that she let herself get hurt from people who try to make felt insignificant or diminish her..when she mention about free love didn’t work..the interviewer mention about how momentary Jen eyes seem registering a subtext of hurt..( do u remember when Ian mention about how Bp try to do that on their marriage,,and Jen didnt like it? ..something like that)

    Does the ring have justin’s name on it? I thought it was her name though it’s hard to tell from photos. It’s strange we haven’t seen her in a long time and I hope she shows up to the awards show. The wedding rumors on TMZ were strange. It doesn’t seem like a site that makes things up but maybe they were misled for a reason. Maybe they’re getting married somewhere else or they’ve broken up or she’s pregnant or who knows. That jen, she just tell us anything!

    I think they will forever be linked together until each of them marries. Boho is saying that brandgie will marry in France in 2013 when the renos are completed and that they will live there full time with his parents. Brad is only marrying her for the kids to give them security. Once they are grown he’s not sure they’ll still be together. I don’t know how she knows this or if it’s true (I can’t believe brad’s parents will leave their home and family to move to france) but she’s got some great photos of the chateau on her site.

Hmm, did not think so. A place for them to stay when they visit perhaps. Live together as another 10 years. Lol I think the point of France is so they do not have to at all. The kids have to share a bedroom? IAN for craps sake please tell everyone the truth about these two. This is pathethic. They do not deserve your silence, none of them do!

    No we’re talking about two different rings here. She has the one she’s been wearing on her left ring finger that is a single finger ring and is a nameplate of her name. Justin similarly wears his own version with his name on the same finger on his hand.

    Siska is talking about in Marie Clare the reporter mentioned that Jen was wearing a two-finger ring (it can be seen on pics of her at the press junket and on Leno, and someone posted pics at FF a few days ago of it) on her right hand. The reporter mentioned that she told Jen she liked the ring and asked where she got it. Jen said vaguely that a friend gave it to her, but the reporter mentioned that Justin’s name is engraved on it. It’s also designed by a friend of Justin’s.

    Thank You for the information ! I have seen the ring in some photo and even that she got it from a “friend”. I never heard the reporters comments. But I do remember comments at FF where it was said the ring was from a friend, not from a boyfriend. It amused them a lot that Jennifer said “friend”. As I didn´t know about Justin´s name on it I thought she actually could have got it from a friend, but not Justin.

They have smothered the papers with positive “news” articles to deflect from something much larger imo. It’s their basis of operation to remain relevant when they are outed for something negative.

Maybe she is coming off drugs and/or alcohol or maybe she is on some prescription meds that she can’t go out in the sun, who knows. I’m sure the sun is very strong at the equator – she should have put an umbrella over viv while she was laying on the sand. Or maybe she should just have stayed out of the sun and found another way to pap herself out. But then we wouldn’t have anything to talk about would we :) She (and he)gives us so much to work with.

    People think the ring is fake, adding to that is did her father really not know?
    Didn’t brad have the respect to ask her father for permission? No matter how estranged, shouldn’t respect be given when gotten? (Jon appears complimentary about brad in press)

    I had hoped this engagement was real, cause it would have been nice for the kids to have a good concrete/legal committment for the kids!

    But something is truly puzzling me!
    Did “leg gate” really effect her head?

    All this positive pr lately, its like machine gun bullets and why?

  399. Guest2 said on April 26th, 2012 at 8:14 am

    After the leg gate incident and now this black tent and hat outfit on a hot beach it does appear she’s gotten nuttier than usual. Maybe not having an acting job for two years has left her with no creative outlet for her craziness and her private life has become her only acting job now. If she has a mental illness as her father said then wouldn’t that get worse as she gets older? Was brad that desperate for a boat load of children that he had to find a fruitcake to have them with?

    think these two feed off each other negative energy she is as nutty as a fruit cake and he has always been in depression and as he has no personality and is as dumb as a rock with not one original idea of his own she runs his life and he is just another one of her kids who follows where ever she leads. it is absolutely amazing that the american mags think these two are attractive and savey. i find them very stupid and dirty because they always make me want to put them in the bath and give them a scrub down.
    they will stay together for ever as they feed of each other and i think Jen was starting to get sick of him and the type of man he is makes the other partner feel sick, ever since she is rid of him she is looking great and she shines with health and whether she stays with Justin or not a man and child does not define a woman. in my next life I am coming back as rich and barren so there to all the loons that think being barren is a disgrace. love my kids but in my next life will be single and childless. so even though i like to read this thread I do not believe they will part for the next 10 years at least

    I agree with everything you said except for one thing…if you come back single and childless be sure that you are also rich as that is the really fun part of freedom, having the money to do whatever you want and go wherever you please.

    I agree, it would have been the right thing to do…to at least let Jon “in” on this “promise for the future” :roll: They haven’t done anything, from day one, the right way. Everything about them is unconventional. So WHY bother with this fake engagement BS at all??? To deflect, of course. yawn.

    “All this positive pr lately, its like machine gun bullets and why?”

    Exactly. Engagement, special envoy title, honorary citizen, Ecuador UNHCR jaunt. Why this blast of PR? She doesn’t even have a movie coming out any time soon (he’s the one with the movie going to Cannes).

    Deflection from what?
    Plagiarism suit settlements?
    Split? (could still happen. Could say the engagement or trip made them take stock and decide to split)
    Some other new scandal?

I adore my daughter … she is my shining light and the apple of my eye, the love of my life. But, as you mommies out there know … we live for our CHILDREN, not ourselves!

    Oh .. and btw … Charles Taylor (the crime lord/blood diamond dude) was finally convicted, after 5 YEARS!!! Ian has in the past referenced “blood diamonds.” Naomi Campbell received blood diamonds from this guy. Wonder if anyone else, in particular, received them as well. And come to think about it … gee … wouldn’t it be cool to have an engagement ring made with blood diamonds? BAAA HAAA HAAAA. I am cracking myself up today.

    My 2 cents about the engagement.

    Brad just got done with the award season, where he didn’t win any of the major awards he was up for. What to do? Oh yea, I’ll go along with an engagement…..
    I don’t believe Brad designed a ring for her. I think the jeweller that she had her jewelry line, designed that ring, and Jolie wore it to the museum, and forced Pitt’s hand when the jeweller announced that yes indeed they are engaged, and Brad was in on the design. Pitt was again, stuck. How could he back out of THIS one, without embarrassing his baby mama?? Especially after all that talk about how the kids are forcing his hand to buy their mother a ring? Yet when the announcement came from HIS publicist, she made it known, that it was only a “promise for the future”. A promise ring. Something that young people do or say, like a pre-engagement, into the future at some point. And no wedding date has been set. HUH? His publicist couldn’t state, well they are looking for a date in 2013? 2014? No it’s just “in the future”.
    They are in financial trouble. She can’t get a movie past “announcement” or what they call PRE-production and none of her movies can get a supporting cast….and all of his financial backers, have backed out, of his movies, Twelve Years a Slave (which he was going to also star in and was a go for June this year backed out!) and A Normal Heart (Julia Roberts lead) that was being produced by his Plan B Production company. His WWZ movie flops, and he’s going to be in a world of hurt, as he himself can’t get a part in a movie UNLESS he is financially backing it …something HE can’t afford anymore, because NONE of his movies have made a profit.
    The stock in the Brand has gone down, immensely, just check out HSX dot com, and put in their names into the search engine…..their “brand” isn’t selling anymore. Brad Pitt was trading a year ago at around 119. He is now in the 70’s. That is a 50 percentage drop. NOT good, when Hollywood takes into consideration, if you are marketable or not. Angelina is in the 60’s….by the way only 5 points above Jennifer Aniston…THIS is the NUMBER one reason why they pulled the “promise for the future”/engagement out of their little bag of PR tricks. They thought they would get a boost for their brand, their “stock” would go up… and it hasn’t worked out.
    Killing Them Softly, a movie that is going to Cannes? Trading @ 36.81? NOT good tracking on this movie, a movie that had a release date once and then was shelved by Weinstein, because they were not happy with the outcome…..Compare it to Moneyball, at this same point last year, was trading @ arount 68. That movie was/is a financial flop…and this movie is looking even worse for Pitt. Now all the promo for this movie will be centered around “when is the wedding” instead of what the movie is going to be about.

    In my opinion, this little engagement, was done for the sole purpose for marketing/advertising of the brand, hoping it would be them back in the stratmosphere of 2006-2009, and that they could financially benefit from the millions of dollars that would be made from the attention they would receive through photographs and PR. What they didn’t expect is the severe backlash of the majority of the public stating this was only a strategic PR stunt… the public has woken up to the fact that these people sell everything of themselves, from their kids, his parents, and displaced people around the world, etc….
    People mag won’t be paying them those big bucks they think they deserve. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they even pay them 1 million dollars, and NOT like the 14 millions they doled out for the exclusive pictures of the twins. That shipped sailed back in 2009.

    Their last trump card is the wedding. Will it take place? Yes. However, they will milk every ounce of PR out of the engagement until the public just doesn’t care…….and then of course, they will understand they have NOTHING else to “sell”…….and they aren’t the “it” couple anymore, and their public has turned on them…Brad will bolt, to try to salvage whatever career he has left. Her career is already dead.

    Interesting. Thanks for the movie info. KTS has no buzz at all at this point. I do expect someone will lay out some big marketing bucks for WWZ when it does actually come out but that’s a long way off.
    Between them they only have 1 movie coming out this year. So is this PR blitz about them getting work? Him getting some funding for some of his Plan B movies, her getting a role.

    So you think they will go ahead with the wedding. I still think he’ll bolt before he lets that happen. Does he think being with her props him up? At some point he’s got to see that she is dragging him down big time.

    Liz Smith is an octogenarian. She once had a lot of power. She’s trying to stay relevant, herself.

    These two are quite tired and worn. They make grade “B” movies, spawn gaggles of illegitimate kids, and are completely useless individuals who have far too much money, suck in too much air and take up too much time in the media when more important issues in the world are facing us. Apart they would be even more vapid.
