Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie planning Indian wedding? [Rumor Mill]

Are the stars of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' set to officially become Mr. and Mrs. Pitt? Could 2011's planned wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton be eclipsed by the marriage of Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? The Times of India is reporting that Brangelina are planning a Hindu wedding in the Indian province of Rajasthan next year under the guidance of spiritual guru Ram Lal Siyag: The Siddha Yoga guru, who is said to have played a key role in bringing peace and harmony into the jet-set lives of Jolie and Pitt, is unconcerned about his name being bandied about in the western media. His disciples, too, refuse to disclose any detail about the glamour wedding. The news websites also reported that Guru Siyag initiated the star couple into the Hindu way of life by giving them a mantra, which they are to recite every morning...

Why Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp may not be enough to save 'The Tourist'

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, just cruisin' in "The Tourist." (Sony) Star power doesn't always translate into fine cinema. Might that be the case for the new Angelina-Jolie-seduces-Johnny-Depp caper "The Tourist"? The star of "Salt" and the actor who made America fall in love with a drunken pirate team up for the first time in this Euro-thriller. The prospect of the intense, sexy pair playing onscreen lovers sounds like a recipe for steamy, high-quality Hollywood escapism, right? Except that -- if early reviews are to be believed -- it isn't. A smattering of critical takes on "The Tourist," and what that reception may tell us about why we go to the movies, follows after the jump....

Brad Pitt's leather pants: Fashionably frumpy?

Pitt in Paris on Monday. (Getty Images) Brad Pitt, who (let's just get this out of the way) is hot no matter what he wears, took another step into sketchy fashion territory at Monday evening's "Megamind" premiere in Paris. This time, Pitt sported a pair of what appear to be too-big leather pants that bunch and pool around his ankles, giving his gams (yes, men can have gams) an uncanny resemblance to rhinoceros legs. To quickly recap, Pitt's previous fashion fails include his Captain Lou Albano-style beard (only Brad subbed in beads for Albano's signature rubber bands) and 2009's unfortunate monagrammed loafer incident. As I pointed out at the time, the exceedingly hideous loafers were a gift from an assistant. Perhaps the leather pants -- which appear to have been made for a man approximately two feet taller than Pitt -- were also a gift? Or he's mayhaps expecting...

Angelina Jolie condemns planned Koran burning

Angelina Jolie has spoken out against the proposed burning of the Koran by a small Florida church on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. When asked about the church's plan, Jolie responded, "I have hardly the words that somebody would do that to somebody's religious book."...

Angelina Jolie visits Pakistan, meets victims of the recent flood (Pictures)

Angelina Jolie, the goodwill ambassador of UNHCR, meets internally displaced people at the Kandaro II flood victim relief camp. (REUTERS) Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes Angelina Jolie appealed to the international community Tuesday to provide aid for the victims of Pakistan's recent flood during her visit to the country. The 35-year-old actress and "goodwill ambassador" for the U.N.'s refugee agency met with victims and said, "I am very moved by them and I hope that I am able to, today and tomorrow, be able to do something to help bring attention to the situation for all of the people in need in Pakistan." The flood, Pakistan's worst natural disaster, killed more than 1,700 people. (JASON TANNER/AFP/Getty Images) The actress wore a black robe and head scarf, similar to the kind of clothing conservative Muslim women wear, according to the Associated Press. This is not the first time one half...

In honor of 'Going the Distance,' we ask: Can real-life couples do big-screen romance?

The good and the bad. (Jason Merritt/Getty Images; Jennifer Graylock/AP) Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes Real-life couples playing on-screen lovers: Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it is an epic disaster a la Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in “Gigli.” Drew Barrymore and sometimes-boyfriend Justin Long have taken the risk and, apparently, it paid off in “Going the Distance” -- in theaters now. While the film has only a 48 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a good deal of the reviewers found Long and Barrymore’s chemistry to be the best part of the film. The Post’s Michael O’Sullivan says of the couple: “Whether or not the actors' on-again-off-again real-life romance helped their performances as lovers frustrated by geography … it's clear they have chemistry. ... They're a modern-day Hepburn and Grant.” I haven’t seen the film, but “Hepburn and Grant”? They must be pretty darn fantastic. Some...
