I don't know if it's the Katie Holmes picture or the Amy Winehouse picture that did it, but the Daily Mail is now blocked by my company's firewall.

It's that sort of BS that drives people to drugs and Scientology in the first place.

Katie's being assisted by the parking attendant...uh, no wait that's Tom. If Anna Wintour looks like a B movie space villain, then the girl beside her is the planetary princess she is casting a spell over. (But it really is a lovely dress, all dove gray and gossamer. She looks like she just tucked her fairy wings under the bodice.)

Well I had to check out the pictures since they were deigned too hot for Byoolin's work. The Wimehouse pictures just made me sad - I really want her to get it together. She's so incredibly talented and wealthy, you would think she'd have any resource available that she wanted. The key is she would have to want it. She is so rail thin, her non-beehived hair had bald spots, and she seemed to have forgotten to wear a shirt again.

And my favorite thing about the TomKat pictures was that they were on a staircase and he was a few steps above her. I'm sure that pose was no accident.

Oh my goodness, those Brits (et. al.) are funny yet again -- anyone else read through the AW comments?

I think these are my faves, but it was hard -- they're really good:

What a mess. If she wasn't already in the public eye, you wouldn't give her a second glance, other than to throw her a pound for a coffee!

- Sara, Hampshire

She maybe a brilliant singer, but she was certainly at the back of the queue when looks where handed out, and she doesn't help herself with the use of drugs and that hair-do, it may be unique but god it's awful.

- Martin, Dawlish

She looks semi-Neanderthal and in need of a good hosing down with disinfectant.

- Glyn, Southampton, UK.

If I didn't know any better, I would have easily mistaken her for Keith Richards.

- Helana, London

And is anyone else just sick of pretentious Brangelina? Why does she need to give birth in different countries? Why do they need to frantically move around the world like ancient wanderers? Why do they need to carry their children who are no longer toddlers everywhere? Why do they seem to seek publicity? And their comments on marriage seem so...pretentionous b/c they have both BEEN MARRIED BEFORE!! Where was their stand on "until everyone can get married" back then????

Their coverage has reached Britney-during-the-breakdown saturation.

And Byoolin, I know you won't find those pictures, but if you do, keep them anyway - I think they would also fall into the "smut" category.

Liz, I'd like to talk about the Tom Cruise love fest on Oprah yesterday. These are the main points to cover:

1. Why are Will and Jada Smith so shockingly skinny?

2. Do you think Tom sings "You've lost that loving feeling" at every possible occasion including (but not limited to) Flag Day?

3. Would you rather watch 25 years of Tom Cruise movies back to back or suffer through a really bad, blistery sunburn?

Posted by: KG | May 6, 2008 9:51 AM | Report abuse

No, Amelia, no one else is tired of the pretension of Brangelina. Well, maybe there are some people out there with nothing better to do, but I'm the one at the keyboard, so I'll just speak for all of us.

I've been married for years, but if I were coming at the question right now, in today's societal and political climate, I might also be tempted to make a stand on behalf of those who are afforded fewer rights. I didn't think about it when I was 22. I'd make a different decision now.

And, I've got a child. If I were constantly surrounded by the mobs of scary-crazy fans and paparrazi that follow the Jolie-Pitt family around, (a good reason to flee the country in and of itself) I'd be tempted to keep a pretty short leash on my little one, too. Up to and including carrying her in my arms, depending on the situation.

I can barely manage 30 minutes of a Tom Cruise movie. 25 years? I'd rather be waterboarded.

New Rule (for myself): Never look at Winehouse pictures before breakfast. She is indeed an amazing singer, but CLEARLY on the personal level is a total mess.

Katie Holmes: Too much fake tan (I guess they thought the intense color of the dress would not work on pale skin), but the overall effect of the fluorescent orange dress and orange skin didn't do it for me.

Maybe I'm just horribly cynical, but I saw the ScarJo engaged headline and thought, "They are about 8 weeks from a bombastic breakup."

Here's someone that needs to go away: Barbara Walters -- didn't want to hear about her and Rosie discussing (eck) astroglide, didn't want to hear about her fallouts with Rosie or Star, didn't want to hear about her crusty, 30-year old love affairs, didn't want to hear about her plastic surgery...

...Come to think of it, don't want to hear about her at all! (Wasn't there a time when she was a [ahem] respected journalist?) No class, Barbara, no class at all.

Katie's shoes are ridiculously hideous. As if the dress is not bad enough, the shoes are super bad. And Tom looks more freaky than usual, which I did not think was possible.

Maybe I'm just being a contrarian, but I happen to think Katie looks fab in that orange dress. And, I sort of agree with Kanye's point, i.e., if his point was that Entertainment Weekly is hardly qualified to give out grades for musical performances.

Are you serious??? You really think "crazy paparazzi" follow stars around? uh uh... Brangelina *invite* them. They are staged photo-ops, very convenient, so that they can capture the 'perfect' moment, like brad and zahara in central park.. or going to buy toys and such like.
I am so sick of people being so naive about stars. Stars have PR people up the wazooo.. they premeditate almost every move. That's why you see so much of pretentious brangelina and so less of people like meryl streep or reese witherspoon.
People... open your eyes. Stop being so sympathetic to the stars. You are being played... they play you every day. Every second you skip studying for finals and log on to this website, every time you pick up people magazine.

1. "jeez," chill out. 2. most of us commenters are a little past studying for finals. Unless by "finals" you mean "the bar." and 3. Ok, even if the crowds are invited, carrying a small child past them isn't the worst idea ever.

I need a ruling from the style gods: commenters or commentors? I like the look of the latter.

Posted by: h3 | May 6, 2008 10:27 AM | Report abuse

"jeez", you should watch that new Ashton Kutcher show once or twice, where the stars go and do tabloid-worthy things just for funsies. These photographers hang around outside their homes, waiting for them to leave, then follow them around. The reason Meryl Streep doesn't get this kind of attention is because she's old and doesn't do anything newsworthy. (Reese Witherspoon is frequently photographed at the grocery store... carrying her child in her arms.) If you're hot and co-habitating with someone hotter, there's nothing you can do to avoid the tabloids. Might as well make the most of it by publicizing important issues, like human rights, for example.

I'm with you Amelia. I'm sick of Brangelina. If you don't want to be in the spotlight don't spout how wonderful you are or that your blood child is a blob compared to your adopted children. Why is she even having more kids? There are plenty of others who are trying to save the planet. Some forgo a car and bike or take the metro to work or walk to work. Recyle, etc. Use cloth diapers. Hmmm..that would be an interesting question for Brangelina. Do you use cloth or disposable diapers? Do you even change your own kids diapers? Or is it that they just kid the kid from the nannies for the right photo op? We'll learn all this in about 10 years time when their kids hit the news for running around w/no underwear on and shaving their heads.

He's like a young Jason Lee without the hairy chest & sucky Chipmunk movie.

My only beef with Brangelina is their constant travel. Aren't some of the kids school age? Yes they can afford all kinds of home schooling/nanny/teacher stuff but it just seems like they can't put down roots.

Kids at that age can't really appreciate all the great stuff they're seeing, kids at that age remember the bag of Cheetos they had or the hot dog they got while on the plane.

Of course this is the view of someone who's lived on the same street, same little town all her life.

Gosh, sorry I upset everyone but I guess I do think that the dragging the children around the planet FOREVER is odd. If Brangelina want to avoid the paparazzi, move to a huge estate somewhere, anywhere, and buy yourself some security. Why not an island? And why not put the children in some school - any school - for a period of time?

If they don't like today's political and social climate, why not go move somewhere that you do? Is there nowhere in the world that would live up to their lofty aspirations? Why not go to Tibet and support the protesting Monks? How about to some country where their children are from and acclimate yourself to that culture by becoming a part of it and then work to improve issues?

But the flying around and lecturing everyone is annoying.

I definitely think they're stalked. Pictures of the right star, pairing or baby can fetch hundreds of thousands. With that kind of incentive, why would paparazzi wait for a call? Why would you call the paparazzi for your first date with someone, celeb or not. Some would, but we've all seen it, and it makes sense. It's smart of the Pitt-Jolies to schedule it and I'd sure as sh-t hold on to my kid in a pack of strangers..

The constant travelling is another issue. Army brats do it, and seem to grow up ok. And we've all seen pictures of Maddox getting picked up at school in Paris by "invited" paparazzi. (Well I have, but I did know Scarlett and Ryan were dating, so I might have more of a "problem" than some of you).

And jeez, graduate students study, but not to the exclusion of all else generally. We all have "better" stuff to do, but as we've pointed out time and time again:
1. You're here.
2. You've obviously checking back for responses because you're responding to those responses.
3. And if we were all making perfectly efficient and superior use of our time, we'd all be working civic-minded jobs and loading our free time with charity and QT with the family. Come on.

Yeah, I figured it out. If someone is attacked often (Angelina, Tom Cruise), you want to rush to defend them. With Angelina, you have things to say to make your case, and when you make your case, you start to believe it. It's human nature. But with Tom Cruise, there's really just nothing to say. And when you start butting into peoples' religious beliefs, they certainly recoil...

While I'm not exactly sick of Brangelina, I did wonder why they have to traipse all over the place to find a home for their growing brood- don't they have about 6 or 7 homes at this point?

Remember when Angelina said something to the effect of she wouldn't have biological children while there were so many kids who needed to be adopted?

Was this before or after she got a hold of some of that Brad Pitt seed?

Before.

Afterwards, her only comment was "Ptoooey!"

Just occurred to me to look at the Met Costume Gala site to see the pix of Katie et al. (Take that, IT department Daily Mail haters!)

She looks like a six-foot-tall traffic cone.

I agree. Matthew M. is just too smelly to be Captain America. Not a good choice at all. Not to mention the not being able to act thing that's also been pointed out.

Angelina Jolie does seem oddly restless. If she wants to get away from the paps, why doesn't she just get a big old ranch somewhere in Wyoming for the clan to settle? Seems like the she could figure out a way to do it so the kids could have both some protection and some stability. I don't know why she's always uprooting everyone and dragging them from one location to the next like some gypsy caravan. (And I say "she" because she does appear to be the impetus.) It's great to be able to see the world and experience new things, but not if you're just running away.

I saw Jonny Lee Miller in a rerun of Mansfield Park on TV this weekend. (Not to mention Eli Stone.) I suspect he's thinking he had a narrow escape from Neverland.

And if you want to see real orange - see the pick of ScarJo with Dolce and Gabbana, one of whom has a complexion that George Hamilton IV would envy.

I, too, believe that same sex marriage should be legal, however, are brad and angie so mind-numbingly awesome that the lawmakers take a second to pull their heads from their arses and say "Oh crap! brad and Angie won't marry? Quick! Pull an emergency session and lets change the marriage laws!"...?

However, I cannot stop reading things about them, so maybe they are on to something...

Damn... I make a conscious attempt to avoid Celebritology for a few months and get some actual work done (at the suggestion of my manager), and what do I discover on my first day back? That this quiet and friendly, little looney bin has gone completely, barking mad!

Liz? byoolin? Who are these people and what horrific psychological tragedy have they shared??

I can't even be snarky about Amy Winehouse. Just gives me the shudders. There's nothing good there.

Now, let's talk Robert Downey Jr. Saw "Iron Man" this weekend - LOVED it!! Love him. Am fully prepared to love the sequel.

Jaybbub, you're reading my mind...stop that. Also saw Iron Man this weekend and can I just say, RDJr is dead sexy? Wow. Props to his trainer who put twenty pounds of muscle on him, he looks awesome, but its the man's style.

For anyone who is resisting because they don't like "comic book" movies, I dragged my friend (female, NOT into action or comic book films) and she can't stop talking about it--a real testament, trust me.

Oh, Helena. You've missed so much. Go back and find the Miley Cyrus comments.
