    Cool, because she is famous in Hollywood, well-paid, good looking, etc.? I, personally, have never seen anything she has appeared in & probably never will.

    I just figured out that this Moneyball movie is the Billy Bean movie that I've been looking forwards to. I didn't realized Pitt played Bean. I have trouble imaging him in that role and now I'm less excited about the movie.

    No, because in interviews she seems nice. That's it.

    Jennifer A has a fabulous PR team. Angelina and Brad do not have a personal PR team. This is the reason why Ok! and Lifestyle magazine has them breaking up every week. This why many magazines quote "a source close to the couple" almost everytime.

    I've never liked Jennifer A, she was my least favorite character on friends. She has always seemed like a doofus and shallow person to me.

    In terms of publicity, Jennifer A is Debbie Reynolds (without Carrie and Todd Fisher's diaper pins) and Angelina J is Elizabeth Taylor during the Fisher mess post-Mike Todd's death. But sweet Jaysus, Debbie didn't play the martyr :drama: as long as JA has - guess ET dumping Eddie Fisher for Richard Burton kinda killed that.

    Guess that should make Brad combination Fisher and Burton - image Burton, whiny reality Fisher maybe? ;)

    The less said about Princess Gwynnie and her whiny-ass pretentious self, the better IMHO. :blah:

    So what you're saying is....celebrities that have overly-dramatic tabloid headlines and articles quoting anonymous "sources" don't have PR teams?

    :rofl:

    I guess all of Hollywoodland is without a PR team then.

    Angie is the one who put the "poor Jen image" out. Not Aniston team. Angie's team.
    And she has PR. She plays it so well...

    Let me get this clear - Angelina Jolie's PR team wants AJ to look like an eville bitch in the Pitt situation and JA to be her poor pitiful helpless blameless victim? Right. :rolleyes:

    Well, she has ridden the weird/sexy bad girl schtick to the top ... it's in keeping with that image.

    That is why I call her "The Widow Pitt". I don't care what anyone says, she has milked that relationship to death.
    Debbie has always made me urp - I find her sickening.
    Likewise Gwynnie, her undeserved Oscar and large feet too.

    But it's not Aniston who has milked the trio to death. It's Pitt and Jolie who ALWAYS have to bring it back so that they can sell more and more and more of their brand.
    Anytime one of these two has a movie to promote, they either talk about it, talk about a "future" wedding etc.
    I don't really care about Aniston but at least, she has behaved with a lot of class against two person who really did play it like they've done nothing wrong. The only time she spoke about it I believe she said They lacked a sensitivity chip.

    Saint Mother Térésa is the image Angie has been trying to build since she decided she wanted to be a "mother". And her PR people really have done more than well considering most people have forgotten her antics like kissing her brother saying he's the love of her life, the blood vials she shared with husband number 2 I think, and so on.
    She was the one feeding the rumors about Aniston not wanting kids, etc etc. While she knew she was recovering from two aborted pregnancies ... But Pitt did nothing to stop that so he's in the same sack imo.

    You've mentioned the miscarriages before, but I've yet to hear a source claiming that. Where are you getting this from?

    Dear gawd - I read the first page and nearly unswallowed (great term from the 1939 version of "The Women"). Not going any further there. :scream:

    Do you think Nancy or Oksana deserved the gold medal?

    Do you think Michelle Kwan should have an OGM? Or not?

    Should Evgeny have beaten Evan?

    (This is the dead horse-beating thread, right?) :p

    I didn't think it was that bad until I got to the part where she had a photo of jewelry and said that she needed a sugar daddy.

    Even as a joke, Gwynnie.....

    But she sure gets to eat some purty food.

    I vowed to not read or engage in any conversation about the threesome that just won't die (and I haven't until now). I usually :scream: far, far away but was surprised to see how many pages the latest entry about the threesome has already gotten.

    So against my better judgement...

    I agree with MarieM and I will say that it underlines (IMO) just how good Brangelina's PR team is. I wish I had bet some $$ because as soon as the interview with Pitt was released, I commented that "I bet Aniston gets blamed for this as well." I was right.

    None of the three are anywhere near perfect yet the press and many fans have put them in exteme corners.

    Eville, bitter, pitiful Aniston who can't move on even though she doesn't really speak much about her marriage and this time around hasn't even commented (as far as I know). Well, except for the comments attributed to her by the tabloids which most will automatically believe is true because she's that kind of person. Most of the articles that bring up the subject reuse variations of quotes from the original articles written during the divorce and the year or two after.

    Then you have saintly Jolie and dufus Pitt who can do no wrong even though they have indeed commented on the breakup and their relationship, children, future plans, romance etc. etc. more than Aniston. Both have made "innocent" little comments that do seem like digs at Aniston. Among other comments, both gave at separate times gave interviews about wanting their children to see "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" because they wanted the kiddies to see where their parents fell in love.

    The really funny thing is that the same people who take the tabloids at their word each time something negative is written about Aniston brush off anything negative written about the other two admonishing folks who shouldn't believe anything written in a tabloid.

    I wish the press would find something else to write about. It's long past time to let it go.

    I'm beginning to think Goop is an android programmed to be as obnoxious as possible and there was no sex at all.

    I find it ironic and appropriate that in "Contagion" it was her character that introduced a killer disease into the public. Her death scene was hilarious (and I don't think that was on purpose).

    I don't know any of these people. But years ago when Brad/Jen were together I lived in Brad Pitt's hometown. I have heard that Brad (was very sweet with his grandmother)

    But I knew someone who worked in like a church nursery with Brad Pitt's little niece. And one thing that can be said is the little girl was going on and on about how she couldn't wait for Christmas because she had talked on the phone with her Aunt Jen, and Aunt Jen had promised they would make Christmas Cookies together...

    I don't know Angelina, or Brad. But Jen at the very least was an adored aunt. (I'm sure I've posted this before :lol:)
