aw, man....

those of you who know me personally know that i have a wee bit of a girl crush on angelina jolie. she is (clearly) gorgeous, but she also puts feet to her words, and lives "out loud". she is who she says she is, whether you like it or not. she is not always the sanest apple in the basket, (billy bob, anyone?) but none the less - she has talent and guts, and i've nutured my crush for a long time. she has made me shake my head many times, but this is something i never thought i'd have to shake my head at her for.


the curvaceous, robust & strong woman i used to admire (who didn't think she had a killer figure in "mr & mrs smith", or even "lara croft", if you must) seems to have joined 'the lollypop guild' - various tartlets & starlets with the "head on a stick" body type, living the weightloss lifestyle to everyone's detriment. oh, angie - why? you are better than this. i am saddened by this turn of events. and i am sick of every beautiful woman turning into this! who said that sticks are sexy? why? i could go on here - i have an entire soapbox rant at the tip of my fingers, but i will leave it at this for now, and save my ire for another day.

oh, angie.

Now Rae, you gotta remember she is an actress - maybe she needed to loss weight for a role. OR maybe all those international travels got her sick and she lost weight or she didn't like the food. Let's wait and see before we make any definite opinions. . .

Yeah, I think its parasites.
I thought you were going to blog about how cool she was for wearing a $26 thrift store dress to that premiere...

I actually just read something about about her weight loss yesterday. They said that she knows there are so many starving people out there with no food at all, so she limits her intake to remember all of them. Seems like the best excuse to me. But come Rach, she's weird! Blood in a vile around your neck? Kissing your brother?

1. casey - i love her *because* she is weird, ok? :)

2. i have not heard that about her weight loss, but oh, i hope it is true. i will happily eat my words.

3. if it is true, another reason to adore her. she is one of the most photographed people in the world, and i sort of admire her for using her body as a billboard to get people's attention.

4. isn't it sick that hollywood "stars" are trying to look like starving people from the 3rd world? *sigh*

4b...by which i mean, that they think looking starved is attractive, not that it's sad if angie is trying to raise awareness. although like i said, i haven't heard that...
