Some dude had this to say about Angie....
“Fans don’t need to watch her films . . . Her roles are only pale imitations of her off-screen self,” continues Basinger, a professor at Wesleyan College. She then recites the sordid highlights of Jolie’s life:
“[She twice] married and divorced very young; publicly kissed her brother a little too hard; admitted to cutting herself; made vague references to drugs; dated a woman; expressed a yearning to be ‘taken down’ by a suitably dominant individual of either gender; declared a willingness to try bondage; wore a vial of second husband [Billy Bob] Thornton’s blood (and divorced him amid allegations of his insatiable sex addiction);” and “announced that she satisfies her post-divorce sexual needs by having flings with men in motels.”
She also, the book recounts, “adopted a boy from Cambodia, a boy from Vietnam, and a girl from Ethiopia; allegedly delivered the death blow to Brad Pitt’s staggering marriage to Jennifer Aniston; conceived Pitt’s child; [has] given birth; and in the middle of all this, found time to take a genuine and serious mission to the United Nations on behalf of the world’s children.”
Basinger says Jolie, back in the days of the Hollywood star system, “could have found steady work playing larger-than-life, even terrifying female characters. Today, she has become one herself . . . It is not a cultural accident that Jolie’s one serious, Oscar-winning role was that of a mental patient.”
I'm adopting this guy as my new best old friend.
