Angelina On Spin Cycle
It's not unusual to find a star submitting to interogation on the heels of a movie premiere. Such is the case with Angelina Jolie, who is spinning her wheels to try and gain some respect as an actress and a mother. I don't think there hasn't been one interviw where she hasn't had to explain her relationship with Brad Pitt. Afterall, Brad was married to America's sweetheart, Jennifer Anniston before he took up with Angelina. I'm sure the spin doctors were called in to clean up the mess and tie it up in a nice, little neat package, but can she really recoup? She admittedly has had a very dark side to her that includes an alleged love affair with her own brother, a lesbian relationship with a fellow actress and a strange marriage to Billy Bob Thorton. They declared their love for each other by wearing viles of each others' blood on a chain around their necks. Now she wants to be seen as Mother Knows Best, by expressing her desire to expand their (hers and Brad's) family by adopting more children (one from Africa and one from Cambodia). I can't help thinking though that there is a tinge of Mommie Dearest behind all of this. She has a new movie out now, "The Good Shephard" so it's really all about ticket sales in the end. Frankly, in her case it's probably better for her to take a page out of Sasha Baron Cohen's book and let her film characters reflect her talents instead.
