To not get what the fuss is about Angelina Jolie

Apart from the fact that she sounds like those cartoon ballerinas grin.

Never seen her in a film, 'cos the films she makes don't really appeal to me. Same with her husband, Mr Pitt I believe.

She's attractive, but in a normal sort of way.

She now says she doesn't want to be an actress anymore.

And is also sniffy about London "mansion tax", lol.

I'm just not getting the non-news about an averagely attractive actress truth be told.

I'm sure she's a fine person and good luck to her, but why she is on the news as if she was some latterday Mother Theresa, is beyond me.

She has made quite a variety of films you know. And is a UN Ambassador I believe. Hence why probably on news.

SuperTooToo Wed 26-Nov-14 23:32:45

Maybe a variety, nothing that would appeal to me as I said.

I understand she is a UN ambassador, though I don't know why.

This thread reminds me of those people who call up radio stations and when the host asks what they're up to, reply with 'not a lot'.

I think she's in the news a lot because she's not averagely attractive. Her films are not especially memorable but she seems to be not a bad egg really.

What fuss? I read this to see what had happened, not that interested, but thought somebody had died. But really? Has somebody died? Or haven't you got a life, op? And yes, I totally see the irony in my response. Or is it their pr. if so, how fucking pitiful.

My tablet just lost my last message, but briefly if you really dont know why she is a UN ambassador I suggest you have a quick look at her Wikipedia page for starters. The work she has done and her efforts to publicise the hardship people face in countries at war is amazing. You might not like her as an actress, but she is on the news and respected because she has earnt it

i personally like her. shes a charity worker and regularly helps in african countrys. i think shes a solid 10/10 in attractiveness and i like her film specially tomb raider and girl irrupurted.
pitt is also a good actor i like them both.
it would be a shame for her to quit acting

Christina22xx Wed 26-Nov-14 23:55:38

asker, what type of movies do you like?

MrsMarcJacobs Thu 27-Nov-14 00:09:03

She's stunningly beautiful, a great actress and married to someone who was once considered the sexiest man alive. She seems to be living what I can imagine is a life that a lot of people envy - maintaining a stellar career, while spending her time travelling the world with her children and balancing that with her charitable work. For a lot of women, she leads the ideal life.

VenusRising Thu 27-Nov-14 00:09:06

OP you're hilarious.
You haven't seen any films with her in them and you don't rate her as an actress?
You don't know anything about her work as a un ambassador and you don't think she's up to much..

Let me google her for you

Are you Jennifer?

EmbarrassedPossessed Thu 27-Nov-14 00:12:24

Hmm. Angelina Jolie has made about 40 films, her husband has made almost 70. Over a hundred films between them. Are none of them of a type you might watch? Maybe you only watch foreign language films, or Korean horror? Or something.

MagicMojito Thu 27-Nov-14 00:24:08

Im not really sure what this threads about? You dislike her? You're angry at her? Your jealous of her?

EachandEveryone Thu 27-Nov-14 00:28:54

I loved her in Gia right at the beginning. She's ace and stunningly good looking. And kind. I don't get this thread.

Snapespotions Thu 27-Nov-14 00:29:22

I hate the whole "sleb" thing, but as celebrities go, angelina seems ok. I don't really care if she buys a house in London though.

She does some very fine humanitarian work. She's won golden globes. She went through a double mastectomy because of her high risk of breast cancer, presumably so she can be around her six children. Amazing work with refugees. What don't you 'get' ?

honeycrest Thu 27-Nov-14 01:03:08

If you think that her looks are 'average' then you must be surrounded by freakishly good looking people hmm

It's weird that not one of the many types of films she has been in appeals to you. She has probably starred in something from every genre at this stage. Do you even like films?!

She seems like a good person, she does lots of charity work, she frequently visits refugee camps, she donated the money they were paid for wedding and baby pics to charity. As well as now being a director and raising 6 kids. Oh and she's an oscar winner. I wouldn't say there's many like her in Hollywood.

Riverland Thu 27-Nov-14 01:23:15

I think I get where you're coming from, OP. She seems a bit flat, bit humourless, dresses in mono, for effect, has an expressionless face that looks very injected. Out with her kids, she wears hugely high heels and seems to hold their hands the way I'd hold sardines.

I've seen her in a film with johny depp where she truly couldn't move a single facial muscle, can't recall the name of it, it was dire.

The main thing about her, to me, is that she's married to Bradley Pitts!

EmbarrassedPossessed Thu 27-Nov-14 01:52:58

"The Tourist" is the film you are thinking of.

I'm curious about Angelina wearing black/white "for effect" - surely all movie stars choose their clothes for a particular effect? Why is choosing black/white a less good choice than colour? Why are high heels not allowed when being photographed with her children?

The comment about hand holding is just bizarre, and I'm not sure what you're trying to suggest about her based on the sardine comparison to be honest.

honeycrest Thu 27-Nov-14 02:05:57

Anytime I've seen pics of her out with her kids she is dressed very casually and wearing flat shoes.

What does holding her hands like you hold sardines mean?

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 27-Nov-14 02:08:08

What films do you like OP? Because Angelina has done a few... Brad even more. May I suggest Thelma and Louise and A Mighty Heart to get you started?
