Angelina Jolie has revealed that she finds it easy to look after her six children.
The 37-year-old actress insists that she and fiance Brad Pitt never worry about missing anything in their careers due to the demands of caring for Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne because they enjoy family life so much.
She said: “It’s just so easy for me to be looking after the kids even thought it takes a lot of energy and you don’t have much time for yourself.”
Angelina continued: “The children are so much a part of my life and Brad’s that we don’t worry or stress ourselves about not working more often.”
However, the Changeling star admits her large brood means she often feels sleep deprived, though this is changing now the kids are getting older.
She told Britain’s OK! magazine: “I don’t feel as if I’m depriving myself from anything except maybe sleep. But now that the twins are older, Mommy and Daddy are getting a little more rest and time to be together.”
“It’s always hectic but more manageable than when I had two very small babies who needed to be constantly with me. That was the most difficult time but even then it was also a very beautiful time in our lives.”
Jennifer Aniston proves that being sexy doesn’t have to involve wearing revealing lingerie or masses of make-up.
The Friends star even manages to make something as simple as H2O look alluring. Jennifer looks effortlessly striking in a new advert for Glacéau smartwater. In one of the black and white photographs, the 43-year-old poses against the backdrop of an outdoor scene, smiling into the distance with a twinkle in her eye.
In a second snapshot, Jennifer looks over her shoulder while behind the wheel of a convertible car. The Break-Up actress, who recently purchased a $21 million mansion with her beau Justin Theroux, has been the face of the brand - said to enhance its water with electrolytes - since May 2010.
Jennifer has been keeping a relatively low profile of late. Jennifer recently told Australia’s The Kyle And Jackie O Show: ‘We tried New York, but it felt like I was in a fishbowl. It was a little rough with the paparazzi.’
Having lived there since she was a child, Jennifer added: ‘It didn’t feel like the New York I knew.’
It seems the Horrible Bosses star is happy to be moving on, even sending flowers to her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, after he announced his engagement to actress Angelina Jolie. Jennifer reportedly sent a $800 bouquet, with a friend telling The Sun newspaper: ‘Finally, it looks like the past is firmly in the past.’
These celebrities are millionaires in their own rights, but when you throw two together, you get an unstoppable - not to mention super rich - force.
Coming first in the ranking - and somewhat suprisingly - is the powerful duo formed by supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL superstar Tom Brady. Gisele is well on the road to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel, as she recently pocketed a massive $45 million over a 12-month period. Not to be overshadowed by his more famous wife, Tom – who signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension in September with the New England Patriots, NFL’s richest deal on an annual basis – brought home another $31 million, putting the couple’s combined annual earnings at $76 million.
Music’s most powerful couple, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z hauled in some $72 million over the past year, making them number 2 on the list. Beyonce earned an estimated $35 million in a twelve month period, thanks mostly to business-focused deals such as a clothing line with Dereon and endorsement deals with L’Oreal, DirecTV, General Mills and others. As for Jay-Z, his earnings come from the 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal that he signed in 2008, and the cash he collects as a shareholder in New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club chain and ad firm Translation.
Hollywood royalty Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came in third place on our list, but the first appearance of an acting duo, with a combined $50 million annual income. The highest-paid actress in the world is the only woman making bank for playing action heroes in Tinseltown these days: Salt, which was originally written for Tom Cruise, earned $300 million at the box office. Her other movie from last year, The Tourist, made another $280 million worldwide. As a result, Angelina pocketed around $30 million last year, while her soon-to-be husband, Brad Pitt, cashed in some $20 million. With his Plan B production company, Brad has become as active a producer as he is an actor.
Apart from the fact that he is yet to popularize soccer in America, David Beckham, along with his former Spice Girl wife Victoria, are the world’s fourth Highest-Paid Celebrity couple, with combined earnings of $45 million between May 2010 and May 2011. David’s pitch prowess has declined in recent years as the 36-year-old’s career winds down, but he still collects big endorsement checks from companies like Adidas and, more recently, Samsung, for which he will be the global brand ambassador during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. His pay check last year: $40 million. Victoria is responsible for the other $5 million from the couple’s annual income, thanks to the percentage of sales that she collects from her fashion lines, a figure which is set to soar this year.
Coming last, but not least, is Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who have both earned $20 million last year thanks to the franchise’s global success, making their combined annual salary $40 million. With the end of the Twilight franchise in sight, they both are preparing for a post-vampire career. Robert has taken the lead in more “serious” projects, like Remember Me, which earned $56 million on a budget of $16 million. In the meantime, Kristens’s non-Twilight career hasn’t been as promising as her co-star and real-life boyfriend’s so far. Her 2010 film The Runaways grossed only $4.6 million at the box office. But there’s still hope for Kristen as she can soon be seen in cinemas playing the leading role in the film Snow White and the Huntsman.
Jennifer Aniston is heading to England and it looks as though she may have picked herself a pad that might be a bit too close for comfort for her ex, Brad Pitt.
The Sun reports today that Friends star Jennifer has been eyeing up potential properties in South West London; not too far from the Richmond home that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie rented last year and are apparently intending to spend “much of the next two years” there.
Jennifer is said to be moving to the English capital for a while, whilst she films the low-budget comedy drama ‘Miss You Already,’ which will co-star Toni Collette and has been scheduled for a 2013 release. The Sun reveal that her reps have been house-hunting for Jen, though a source reckons that “She hasn’t had anything to do with Brad since their 2005 divorce. But if they are both living in the same neighbourhood it could lead to awkward encounters.”
Brad and Jennifer aren’t the only A-listers fond of Richmond; Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and Johnny Depp have all stayed there recently. Apparently the area is a hit with Hollywood’s finest because the leafy suburb feels like London, but still has a country vibe to it. Brad and Angelina are thought to be returning to Richmond this week, following their luxury break in the Galapagos Islands.
Jon Voight has been discussing daughter, Angelina Jolie, and partner Brad Pitt’s wedding, and says he believes she has enough children.
The Hollywood actress has six children with fiancé Brad, and Jon says that he doesn’t see the couple expanding their brood any time soon.
“I love kids,” he told RadarOnline. “[But] I don’t think so… six is quite a group, you know!”
The actor is glad he has reconciled with his daughter so he can be close to his grandchildren. The two had a falling out in 2002 after Jon said Angelina should get help because she has “serious mental problems”. They ended their estrangement in 2010 with the help of Brad.
“I think because parents are with them on a daily basis they may not see the changes as dramatic as a grandparent does, but they live through every change,” Jon said of watching his grandchildren grow up. “You don’t see them for a little while and then they have different growth spurts and develop different enthusiasms and you hear them talking.”
The 73-year-old star is over the moon about the announcement of his daughter’s engagement to Brad. He told Us Weekly they are yet to make any plans as they are just enjoying the excitement of the proposal. “It was very nice I thought,” he said of the happy news. “If they’re going to have a wedding - it’s wonderful. Of course, they’re the parents of six kids. They’ve been that way for a while. They haven’t given me any insight into [the wedding]. I can’t really trust what people say and so I have to get it from Angie.”
Despite several years of rumours that Jennifer Aniston felt animosity towards ex-husband Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie after they fell in love while they were still married, the former Friends star is reportedly happy for the pair now that she is loved up with boyfriend Justin Theroux.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: ‘Jennifer is happy for Brad and Angelina. She is so in love with Justin, that she is really grateful how things turned out. In a strange way if it weren’t for Angelina, Jennifer would not have connected with Justin in a romantic way. Jennifer is in a really wonderful place right now.’
Brad, who was previously married to Jen for five years, and Angelina, who was married to both Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton for three years, finally became engaged this week after years of speculation. The Hollywood couple are now said to be planning a move to the Richmond in Surrey, where they have been photographed with their six children several times in the past.
And as for the wedding venue? A source told The Sun that it could possibly be the UK: ‘They loved it when they were in the UK last year. They like the culture and are happy for their children to receive schooling here. They think Richmond is a beautiful part of the world.’
After news reached fans that the pair had decided to get married, Angelina and Brad confirmed the news with a statement from his manager Cynthia Pett-Dante, saying: ‘Yes, it’s confirmed,’ adding: ‘It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy.’
It’s taken them seven years and six children, but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally taken the next step and have confirmed that they are engaged, calling it ‘a promise for their future’.
“Brad had the vision” for the custom-cut engagement ring, Beverly Hills jeweler Procop told People magazine. The ring consists of a huge stunning sparkler with diamonds set on a band of yellow gold. An independent expert has said that the ring could weigh in at more than 10 carats total, with a whopping price tag of $1 million.
Angelina, 36, quietly debuted the ring at a private event at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on April 11.
After seven years and six kids together, the couple decided that they were ready to begin their next chapter together. “They’ve reached a stage where their family has jelled,” says a source who has spent time with them.
It has been reported that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are expecting to have twins together later this year and wish to be married before the babies come. Angelina and Brad already have one set of twins, a son, Knox Léon, and a daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, who were born back in July 2008. Watch this space!
It seems that one of the most unlikely friendships in Hollywood history has emerged, as Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend Rosie Coker, have become quite close with Hollywood power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
It has been claimed that the four of them can often be seen playing a spot of tennis together and, while the games can become fairly intense and rather competitive, they all have a laugh and a joke at the end. Daniel Radcliffe is said to be a fairly handy tennis player and Rosie Coker is not too bad either.
However, they young couple are believed to have often let Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie win a few games, to keep things tight and to keep them coming back for more. Angelina is said to be very feisty on the tennis court and is quite the sore loser.
Surely it will not be long before we see Daniel Radcliffe starring alongside either Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie on the big screen. Maybe Daniel could play Angelina’s love interest to make the tennis atmosphere a little more intense than it already is.
PART OF AN APRIL FOOLS GAG TAKEN FROM FANSSHARE.COM - DID THEY GET YOU?
Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt is one of the many big names that have been doing all that they can to help build sustainable and affordable homes for working families. Brad has achieved a lot with the Make It Right Foundation but when questioned on it by Ellen DeGeneres, he is very humble.
Pitt explained, “I’m getting far too much credit for this. This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation. It took the families determined to come back [after Hurricane Katrina] and their resilience and they’re defining what this thing was going to be.”
He added, “I get far too much credit for bringing some really smart people together.” Brad Pitt also admitted that, since he was helping to build so many new houses, one of his children has developed a keen interest in houses.
Brad admitted that one of his six children that he has with Angelina Jolie, has started drawing houses all of the time and he even claims that the child could have a future in architecture. Brad Pitt has a great rapport with the people in the area and he is clearly proud of everything that everyone has achieved.
The full interview is set to air tomorrow. For now though, check out the clip below.
Mad Men actor Jon Hamm has revealed that he does not really think of himself as a handsome man, as he believes that people such as Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds are the good looking ones. Jon also admitted to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he has often struggled with fame.
Hamm explained, “I don’t necessarily think of myself like the handsome guy. That’s reserved for Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds and those guys. It’s certainly nice when people say nice things about you, don’t get me wrong.”
He added, “I guess I never really thought of myself that way. I just wanted to be a regular person and try to portray parts as varied as I could. It’s a weird experience to go through something like this, especially when it happens so fast. It seemed like Mad Men sort of hit overnight and was this crazy sensation.”
Jon continued, “We won the Golden Globe and I won the Golden Globe, and we won the Emmy and all this stuff happened, and you think, ‘Oh my God this is a crazy swirl’. I live a pretty stable life. I mean, I have a relationship and a house and a dog, and it’s kind of like, well, now we are living a life that has this weirdness in it. It is a strange shift.”
Do you think Jon Hamm is as handsome as Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds?
Lopez explained, “They do something to you where you want to do everything right for them…And obviously no parent does everything right. It’s this weird thing that happens where you are striving to be as good as you can be so that they turn out well.”
She added, “That requires that you be a really great, evolved, aware person in every moment. Which is pretty awesome. But it’s also putting tremendous pressure on yourself—which is why women feel so guilty!” Jennifer then admitted that her ex husband Marc Anthony has been vital in building her self confidence.
Lopez continued, “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have. He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!”
The full interview is in the April edition of Vogue magazine.
It has been reported that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are expecting to have twins together later this year and wish to be married before the babies come. Angelina and Brad already have one set of twins, a son, Knox Léon, and a daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, who were born back in July 2008.
A, so called, source has claimed, “Angie is expecting twins this fall, so it is making them feel a time crunch. They decided they’d both like to welcome their twin boys to the world as man and wife, which means the wedding has to happen fairly soon.”
The supposed source added, “They’ve both realised how much they want to be together. The wedding was totally off: They were having so many arguments, but they’ve finally managed to bury their differences.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have previously claimed that they would not get married until the US made it legal for homosexual couples to marry, nationwide. However, Brad has since claimed that they were considering the possibility of marriage for the sake of their children.
Do you think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will get married this year?
