You guys have been giving me crapola for all my Angelina Jolie posts as of late. But, as I've told you, I like Brangelina. They fascinate me. And anytime I see photos of their kiddies I have to buy them because I want to share. They're cute star kiddies. Perhaps the cutest -- save little Violet Affleck.
So, as you can imagine, I was psyched to be offered the opportunity to meet Angelina on Friday at the press junket for A Mighty Heart. I'll give you all the details about what she said later, but I wanted to first tell you what it was like being in the same room with Hollywood's biggest movie star (and most talked about actress). First things first - yes, she's thin. Very thin. You could see the veins popping out of her arms. She was also dressed in all white, which made her look tinier. But although she's thin it wasn't like seeing Nicole Ribcage Richie. Angelina isn't that bad -- at all. She was wearing minimal makeup -- eyeliner, mascara and if she was wearing lipstick it was so close to her shade of lips that you couldn't tell. Her hair was superthick and long. Full of body. It was brown of course, but it actually had a blondish look to it. I think she's so interesting looking because of her features and they were larger in person. Her lips are like nothing I've seen before -- bee stung x 100. They just poked out. Far. Big, big, big. Her eyes are an eye-popping shade that I've never seen before on a person. Minty. But they are gigantic too. Fish like. And when anyone talked, or she answered a person's question, she locked her eyes on you the whole time. She also smiled a lot too. And laughed. And she was forthcoming about things... like her kids. For a minute I was like: Am I really talking to Angelina Jolie about Maddox and the gang? It was rather strange. I think the part I remember most was that when she walked into the room, this burst of "clean" just filled the room. It wasn't perfume or shampoo or a scented lotion. It was just "clean." Well-groomed, I guess. Oh, and jewelry. She was wearing a watch, a diamond ring on her right hand (ring finger) and diamond earrings. Minimal. Classic. I'll post the transcript of our conversation tomorrow, but for now here's a shot of her with Shiloh and Maddox yesterday in NYC.
