Angelina Getting to Work in Chicago

Angelina Jolie is diving right into her next project in Chicago, which is a thriller in which she’s co-starring with Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy. The 32-year-old actress appears to have bounced back from the box-office disappointment of pet project, “A Mighty Heart,” and is throwing herself into her work and family-life. However, it looks like it might be one of the last projects Angelina plans on doing before winding down her work schedule to spend more time focusing on raising her children. In the couple’s kitchen, there is reportedly a note that reads:

“Success is a beast. It puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. I prefer to look within.”

It’s like we’re twin souls because on my refrigerator, I have a special little something attached via magnet, so that I may look at it and be inspired. It’s this picture of a cat–I doubt you’ve ever seen it before because it’s from a fairly obscure philosopher–and it says, “Hang in there, baby!” My yogi gave it to me.

More photos of Angelina Jolie on the set of “Wanted” after the jump.

  1. Deja Vu! How many times is she going to do “one more project” then take some time off? I guess when more people catch on to the fact that she can’t play anything but a mental patient.

    Do they take said note with them everytime they get on a plane? I can hear Brad now…”Fedora? check! Kids? Check, check, check, check! Angie’s note? Check!”

    Chickie should have a sign on the fridge that says “EAT !”

    “Success is a beast. It puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. I prefer to look within.”

    Words of wisdom indeed. Success can be interpreted in many different ways though. Success at raising a family, success at school etc. I presume they are talking about dirty FINANCIAL success. Money being the root of all evil and all that. And we know our two favourite humanitarians are above all that. That’s why they do back to back films. They are looking within.

    I hope this isn’t true, otherwise they are full of shit, in my book.

    I have a fridge magnet that says ‘my next boyfriend will be normal’ on my fridge. Far more meaningful.

    CNN made the mistake of running a short story (on their Political Ticker) about who Angelina Jolie might (or might not)endorse for president. The readers did not respond favorably. click and scroll down.

  4. T-Bone

    I have a fridge magnet that says “No more bitchy pills for you, little miss crabby ass”

    I wonder how many of the people bitching about Angie completing projects she had agreed to finish before taking a break are in fact working mothers? Some people leave their kids in the care of babysitters, or after school care for nearly 10 hours a day. She’s not leaving her kids at home and going away for months at a time, she’s taking her family with her when she works.

    Good for her, she’s at the peak of her career and is making choices that she feels are best for her and her family. She sounds pretty well adjusted considering how much money, and how much pampering the average actress receives.

  6. T-Bone

    Wait – I also have a magnet that says “if a bear shits in the woods, should i have a cocktail?”

    Now THAT’S meaningful!

  7. Monica

    I thought she was going to take a year off! Wasn’t that a couple of shitty films ago?

    Regardless, her magnet obviously works better than mine, which says, ‘Jesus is Coming, Hide Your Bong.’

  8. Zekers

    Her internal thermostat must be out of whack…it’s hotter than blazes and dripping with humidity where she is and she is wearing long pants, boots and long sleeves? Hmmmm…

  9. green cardigan

    Jinxy McDeath – I agree she seems to care for her family, takes them everywhere with her, what bugs me about her is her Holier Than Thou attitude.
    Like that link T-Bone posted, she feels the need to speak out about her ‘endorsement’ of your next president. Excuse me, but who gives a rattling shit? She’ll be down at the polling booth or however you do it, like Joe Bloggs down the road on election day.
    Why can’t she see that ? Why can’t she give an answer to that effect?

  10. Zekers

    “‘Jesus is Coming, Hide Your Bong.’”
    Hahahahahahahaha!
    Monica, do you really have a magnet that says that??? Where did you find it, I have got to have one for a friend of mine-it would be perfection!

  11. She should have a note that reads

    “Just because i ruin marriages, maintain a horrible drug habit, neglect my rainbow baby collection and lie to everyone on a daily basis, that doesn’t make me a bad person!”

  12. jen

    come on….you know she’s never been in the kitchen – that would imply she’d been close to eating something.

  13. Green Cardigan, T-Bone, Monica…

    I think i can top that….

    “I’m not mean, you’re just a sissy!”

  14. devil

    Angelina wanted to take her break after making a successful film. Unfortunately, her last film bombed and she has to keep trying. She might still be trying for a hit when Shiloh’s in college, who knows?

    It can’t be easy being Mommy to four kids (five if you count Brad).

    My most meaningful fridge magnet reads…When life gives you lemons, squirt the juice into the eyes of your enemies.

  15. green cardigan

    I have another one that says ‘The road to hell is paved with good intentions’.

  16. lookwhaticando

    She is just to HOT, I hope this flick does much better than AMH.

  17. Zekers

    I suspect it will lookwhaticando…Morgan Freeman is starring…love Morgan Freeman.

  18. Here Here Zekers!!
    Moll Flanders, Se7en, Shawshank, Driving Miss Daisy, Lean on Me…
    Morgan Freeman has one of the most impressive body of work in Hollywood. Period.

    Devil,
    “When life gives you lemons, squirt the juice into the eyes of your enemies”
    It is now my mission to find that and make it a permanent part of the fridge decor!!!!

  19. T-Bone

    Green! I got that in a fortune cookie one time and was frightened! Everyone else was getting nice ones and I got THAT! GEEZ!

  20. GaGirl

    I dont particularly care for her or her brood but I will post what I have on my fridge.
    Magnet says:
    “Fat people are harder to kidnap”
    I think it speaks for itself.

  21. someone

    Jinxy Mcdeath..Most of the women that work and have thier kids in daycare, do it to put food on the table and pay the bills, its a necessity. Angelina does not have to work, she could stay home for the rest of her life and still live like a queen, she does it because she wants to.

  22. essie

    Where shall I begin?

    First of all, this is NOT a new film, it is the same film (Wanted) she was doing in Prague. It is being completed in Chicago. Those crazy movie studios. They just film all over the world.

    In those pictures Angie is on the set of the movie, IN COSTUME!! Doesn’t matter what the weather, she has to wear those clothes. You know, like when they film Christmas movies in summer?

    That fridge quote was MADE UP by a tab rag. Why would Angie put a saying on her fridge when, by her own admission, she never visits the kitchen. Also, which kitchen on which continent is that magnet?

    Lastly, I absolutely LOVE Morgan Freeman!!! I’ve been mad about him for the past 20 years. He’s wonderful and his voice is like a song!!! Excuse me while I dance off to watch “Shawshank Redemption” for the 50th time!!!

  23. jingomaster

    you guys are just all jealous of those nice thick cock sucking lips. that girl loves herself some cock…. ban me? free speech, whatever became of it?

  24. T-Bone

    Wow Jingo,
    You’ve just reduced Angelina Jolie to a hole on her face to pleasure men. She’d love you for that, I’m sure.

  25. FAT & LOW INCOME CUBAN

    SHE IS A NARCISSISTIC BITCH WITH VERY LITTLE BRAINPOWER.

  26. tres'

    IMO she is very succeSSful in her career , even when her movie AMH didn’t do so well money wise she has been recieving rave reviews and oscar buzz from a lot of legitimate press and sources.

    the fact that she is soo beautiful almost too seductively beautiful is actually what has less than stellar looking people against her. How can a woman be so lucky to have it All…. Alist superstar , to die for geogeousness , children who adores her and Brad Dad!! ….SIGH!!

    It’s when all above hits me on the head , I go to my kitchen…grab a handfull chocolate almond cookies and say my ‘cat prayer’ that I have on my fridge magnet
    ‘DEAR GOD, IF I CAN’T BE THIN PLEASE MAKE ALL MY FRIENDS FAT’

    Okay, all you silly people. Go see A Mighty Heart and you will realize what a wonderful actress she is. It’s a fabulous movie but one, I have to say, that the average movie-goer didn’t want to see. It should have been an HBO movie of the week because it’s such a powerful movie & she should be nominated for an oscar she’s that good. Also it takes two to make or break a relationship. Brad Pitt didn’t have to leave his wife. He could do what a lot of Hollywood people do and have a fling, etc., etc.

    Have you all adopted unwanted children? I doubt it.

    Wow Essie, thanks for all the clarification. Seems you know what’s happening with Angelina better than she does. Are you her P.R. person or just an over-informed cheerleader?

  30. Monica

    Zekers, here you go. My MIL gave it to me, seriously. http://www.fridgedoor.com/jesiscomhidy.html

    Devil, I want one of the lemon juice magnets! That’s awesome.

    Gloria, if you crawl out of Angelina’s ass for a few minutes, you’d see that A Mighty Heart has already tanked and stopped playing in most markets but you were right about most not wanting to see it. And I have adopted 6 unwanted children but they’re much cuter than AJ’s and much furrier and won’t cost me thousands in therapy and legal fees getting them out of jail in 10 years.

  31. blady02

    Gloria the point is not to endorse her or her sucky movies even for a trial run…. As for Brad doing the right thing by leaving his wife… he was fucking AJ long before and probably got caught…. AJ deserves nothing and the affair is not the only reason we hate her skinny ass. It is that she buys kids for publicity and speaks to the press like she owns them and us…. She is so full of herself she is going to burst and yes we want to watch… She has insulted our integrity, morals, and trust and she deserves the pain and loneliness coming her way for what she has caused…. Need I remind anyone of when she hit the couple on the bike and pulled over and commented “No you are too old to take home to Mad!” and drove away….. not to mention that those kids are not all without real parents, they were just poor and desolete… If she really wanted to help why didn’t she build them a house to raise their own children and help them live a better life with their own… Why? because she is trying to be Snow White and the seven dwarfs and run from her self wicked witch….She is a manipulating bitch and I hope Brad is seeing it and is sick of it and publicly disgracing her and lives out the rest of his has been life on the sea to spare the women of the world his insensitive nature….
