Angelina Jolie hopes to clear a path for dangerous women.
She grew up idolizing tough-guy movie stars, and is regarded in Hollywood as the industry’s top bankable action actress, but few women are given similar roles, and she hopes more will follow.
When she was coming of age, she says she was oblivious to any limitations.
“I had a really great mom who never let me know that,” Jolie said in a recent interview with USA WEEKEND Magazine. “I grew up thinking girls could do everything. I...
Angelina Jolie's 'Tourist' Dilemma: Attend Globes or Not?
PR experts say critical pans of movie could make support for the nom potentially "embarrassing." The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. raised eyebrows this week by nominating the widely panned thriller The Tourist for best comedy and nominating stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in the comedy/musical acting categories. To skeptics, the choices appeared to be a particularly blatant play to line the red carpet with celebrities -- in this case, two of the world's biggest -- at the Golden Globes ceremony Jan. 16. Additionally, the movie was never marketed as a comedy; it was portrayed as a r...

Brangelina Dressing Shiloh Boyish
The 3-year-old's tomboyish look has tongues wagging, and last week's cover of Life & Style magazine asking, "Why Is Angelina Turning Shiloh into a Boy?"
But one parenting expert thinks everyone should simmer down and let the child be a child.
"What Shiloh is doing now at 3 is very age-appropriate," Michelle Golland, a clinical psychologist and MomLogic.com expert, told ABCNews.com. "Kids take on different identities. And she has older brothers. In some ways, she's going to aspire to be like them."
Golland said she thinks Jolie and Pitt are taking a healthy approach to Shiloh's self-expression. "I think th...

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Argue About Announcing Split
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly arguing over when to confirm their rumored split. Sources say the Jolie believes Pitt leaked news of trouble in their relationship and is “furious” he may announce their split without her consent.
“She’s furious that news has been leaked and thinks Brad’s camp has something to do with it because he wants out now. Angelina would prefer to split in nine months’ time so that it can be a proper orchestrated PR break,” claims a source.

Jolie kids can't touch inheritance until they are 25
Angelina Jolie's children won't be able to touch the money left to them by their late grandmother, Marcheline Bertrand, until they turn 25.
French actress Bertrand left a large portion of her estate to Jolie's kids Maddox, 8, Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 3 -- the three grandchildren she met before she lost her battle with ovarian cancer in January 2007.
They were each left $100,000, but according to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, the money has been placed in trust funds and the kids will only gain access to their inheritance on their 25th birthdays, reports TMZ.com.
James McAvoy doesn't know what's happening with the Wanted sequel.
The Scottish actor, who starred in Wanted alongside Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman, said he's "waiting" to see what film bosses come up with.
"I really don't know, I'm still waiting to see - I keep hearing it is happening, then it's not," he said at the London premiere of his new film, The Last Station.
He admitted he would like to reprise his role as assassin Wesley Gibson.
"I read a version of the script a while ago and I don't know what's happening now, so we'll wait and see. They want to make it and it made a lot of money so they'll be happy to make it, but it doesn't seem to be materialising just yet - I'm sure it will."
This video was recently posted on the youtube channel dedicated to Angelina's mother. It reads "Thanks Everyone for your kind words. The video is now on its way back to the private family archives from where it came."
Pitt, Jolie did meet with lawyer - to protect assets
After days of speculation about a possible breakup between Mr. Pitt and his other half, Angelina Jolie, word is surfacing that the power couple did indeed visit a high-powered L.A. lawyer last week - but only to cover their assets.
"They aren't married, so they need to protect their children and property in case there's a rift in the future," a source says.
That certainly makes sense, considering the two are worth a whopping $330 million combined.
So why are rumors of a breakup running rampant?
"People hear 'legal papers' and assume it means a divorce," our snitch continues. "But it could mean exactly the opposite. Either way, they're making sure to get their ducks in a row, which they'll need whether th...
