Angelina Jolie Taking a Year Off

It will finally be all play and no work for Angelina Jolie. She’s planning to take a year off starting around the end of this year so she can focus on her family and her charity work.

I’m working this summer. I’m in Prague for a few months, then I take two months off, then I work for two months,” Jolie said Tuesday while promoting A Mighty Heart at the Cannes Film Festival. “And then I take a year off.”

Asked if the time off will be for her family, she replied: “Yes.”

The Pitt-Jolie clan will remain at their villa on the French Riviera for several more days more as Pitt premieres Ocean’s Thirteen.

Jolie also told reporters on Tuesday about her recent pilot-license upgrade and the possibility of flying en famille. “Brad has his pilot’s license and I just got my instrument rating, so we’re moving forward with that but we haven’t had a lot of time because of the kids and with Pax coming home,” she said. “I wouldn’t fly the kids at this moment. I would only fly the kids if I had been actively flying for a few months and when I’m not at all rusty.”

I’m thinking that’s probably a wise move.

    Where have i heard that before??

    Hey T-bone!
    You must be spinning what with all the good stuff Angie and Brad are giving us loving fans!
    Bless their hearts for sticking it to all you hate-mongers. Their love affair is palpable and it tugs at the romantic heart in all of us—-too bad about you. I hope you and your ilk finally spend your time and energy on something other than wishing bad things on a couple whose big crime was falling inlove with each other without your permission.

    Haaa haaahaah!

    LOL, then maybe you should back up off the pipe and booze. Might help matters a lil bit.. lol

  6. Ah, Weekly meeting of the Delusionals, welcome your new member Dorothea.

    How many times are people (other than the above Delusionals) going to fall for that line?

    My apologies Lookwhaticando,
    i just realized that was a bit too smart of a reference for you. As noted in prior posts, given your tendency to use emo-slang, this was probably a toughie for ya.

    “The elephant in the room is an English idiom for an obvious truth that is being ignored. It is based on the fact that an elephant in a small room would be impossible to overlook.”

    I.E. This being that this is a “family” and this being that Angelina would actually spend ANYTIME with “it”.

  9. T-bone

    Um Dorothea, I haven’t even commented on this yet, dumb-ass, so exactly who are you spewing your venom to?

    As for this post — I’ll believe it when I see it.

  10. Margaret

    Dorothea – it doesn’t tug at my “romantic heart”, more like my colon, but if it makes you happy to go sleep at night fantasizing about these two, you go girl.

    Winner of the day!!!!!!!!

    As for the “Delusional’s” (love it!), Lookwhaticando is running for President of that little club. Must have forgotten the other 10 times she promised to spend time with her kids.

    Throws head back
    HAAAAA… HAAAAAAAAAAAA!! HAAAAAAA! HAAAAAAA HAAAA HAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAA !! LOL! YOU HILARIOUS GIRL!

  14. Margaret

    Hey guys, don’t count your Oscars before they hatch. I just read two reviews: The National Review and Washington Times who both have problems with Jolie’s “mediocre” performance and issues with Brad Pitt espounding his my heads up my a** philosophy on terrorists in regards to the reason for making this movie. Apparently Brad believes that if you’re nice to terrorists, they’ll be nice to you and has said as much in the PR for this flick. Wait till the big guns get hold of that one. If they sapped up this movie in disrespect of Danny Pearl, I will be furious, as will many, many patriotic folks.

  15. T-bone

    Exactly Margaret — but if you’re you’re nice to a pack of wild jackals they’ll be nice to you too. Just pet them, right?

    Brad Pitt (and Hollywood at large) — completely in the dark when it comes to religion, war and the deep-rooted cultural divide that goes along with it. “BEING NICE” ain’t gonna do it.

  16. Dorothea

    Chuckle, chuckle, at the first sign of a positive Brad and Angie story, the cockroaches come scurrying out of their dark holes. Tsk. Tsk.
    Oh, by the way, T-bone, thanks for proving me right— and right on cue! You’re so predictable!What the hell happened to you to make you so damn bitter and humourless?
    People love a couple inlove—and that pisses you off? Wow. That’s sad.
    Sure they may not last. Life’s like that. But that’s their journey–not mine or yours to judge. Meanwhile, I think it says a lot about the goodness in those that find joy in a loving relationship. And sadly, it speaks volumes about what a dried up old prune you must be. Yikes!

  17. T-bone

    And if the terrorists are so nice, then why the hell did they kill Daniel Pearl, BRAD???? HA??? Didn’t you produce this movie????

  18. T-bone

    givemeabreak must have changed her name to DOROTHEA! Go back to Kansas, babe.

  19. Snikeys Dorothea, you’re wasting your time here…Hallmark is in desperate need of your sappy meandering!

  20. T-bone

    Interesting observation regarding all of the Brangeloonies…. they comment on how “mean and hateful” all of us “non-worshiping Jolie” types are, yet their posts are always the ones filled with the most rage and anger. Hmmmm…. makes one wonder…

  21. Cynthia Is Boss

    T-BONE SHUT THE EFFFFFFF UP!!!! SERIOUSLY GET AN EFFFFIN LIFE

  22. A- What a selfish bitch. NO WAY my children are getting in a plane with training pilot, even if it was myself. clearly these kids are just accessories.

    B- Dorothea, what exactly about this post inspired your Brad/Ange romantic tirade?? The most she said about him is “Brad has his pilot’s license and I just got my instrument rating” That’s HOT!

    C- Those of you that are waxing poetic about these two here, clearly you live your lives with rose colored glasses.

  23. Dorothea

    Gee T-bone,
    its your lucky day since I can spare the time—don’t have hours a day to spend posting about celebrities, unlike you apparently. Maybe if you read something other than proven-to-be-fabricated stories in the trash rags, you would have a basic grasp of world politics.
    Brad nor I nor most people condone what a terrorist does—dumb ass (you started it!)
    But if we don’t make the effort to figure out why they are terrorizing innocent people—we are all doomed to endless war with one another. Its that simple. We can keep trying to kill each and everyone of them but they will keep on coming…..more and more of them. An endless army of those growing up hating us in the west. And us so arrogant—so blind–so stupid—we think sending a generation of our precious young men and women overseas to fend them off is the solution. We need to be smarter than that.

  24. T-Bone,
    What do you mean? OH, you mean like this bundle of joy?

    Dorothea—well said but I’ve been on this site before and all the usual posters are here and believe me, they are dumb as dirt.

  26. Oh Kimmie…don’t be bitter!

    You know what they say…fool me once, shame on me, fool me 27 times, you’re an Angelina Jolie fan.

    Kisses!

  28. kim

    Clarissa–just where in God’s name are you getting your ’27′ versions of what Angie has said? Who made you the expert on this woman’s life just ’cause you believe everything you read in the trash mags? People say things, mean them, and then change their mind or circumstances change. And then people actually don’t say things and things are just made up to sell magazines. How naive are you?
    Didn’t Jen say last year she saw herself having a kid this year? I saw that in print but I’m not flipping out on her ’cause it didn’t happen.
    Never mind, let’s get real here. Jen says her not having kids didn’t add to the breakup with Brad. He says so too. Apparently celebs do lie.
    But that’s their prerogative and none of your damn business.

  29. tmeeka

    The question was asked “where do you (Jen) see yourself in five years?
    Jen said that she saw herself in five years married with a child.

  30. k, so let me get this straight…U HATER’S were happier when Brad was living a completely superficial life with ANISTON?

    I’m just not getting what is delusional about thinking 2 people that seem 2 have fallen in love & start adopting are sooo disgusting, that U have 2 make references about COLONS??? Why are they soo gross to you????

    THE PHYSIOLOGY of this is, people who get so riled up over seeing a harmless couple, are obviously lacking a love life of their own. WHO”S THE DELUSIONAL ONE?

  31. Margaret

    Dorothea says “Brad nor I nor most people condone what a terrorist does—dumb ass (you started it!) But if we don’t make the effort to figure out why they are terrorizing innocent people—we are all doomed to endless war with one another.”
    ================
    Tell that to the families of the victims of September 11th. Why don’t you start a program, dimwit – I’m sure Brad will donate – “Take A Terrorist Into Your Home”. I’m sure a little kindness, some home cooked meals, a little time with your kids will make them feel loved and wanted and they’ll change their ways. Please tell me, fair lady, that we don’t have to listen to your September 11th conspiracy theory, too on this thread.

  32. Margaret

    kim – I’m confused. If both Brad and Jen said that their not having a child had nothing to do with their divorce, who the Hell are you to say otherwise. Let’s see: Angie said and meant, but changed her mind, that Shiloh was an acciden. Angie said and meant, but changed her mind in Vietnam that she would be a stay at home Mom, Angie said and meant, but changed her mind, etc., etc., etc., etc.

  33. Linda B

    To quote Yogi…it’s deja vu all over again. I can see them next year flying their poor “hostage” kids all over the world picking up new kids like souvenirs. I cringed when she mentioned flying those kids anywhere at any time. It’s going to be the “watch us save the world tour” and their kids are just set decoration. Heck find a place to live and let your kids feel somewhat normal for a moment at least give them that.

    Linda B – I totally agree with you. Amen and Amen. Good night, John Boy.

  36. givemeabreak

    T-bone, no sweetie, I will always ALWAYS log on as “givemeabreak”. I don’t have to hide behind another name like YOU do. I just have a ,OMG, a JOB. I can’t sit online all day EVERYDAY. I do think Angelina and Brad are good people. Enough with the “Jen saids” and “sources of Jen say”. Who frickin cares? Jen and her “sources” should have jumped ship a long time ago. If Jen is still sitting around moping over Brad she is crazy. I DO however doubt that she is. I think she’s a reasonably smart woman, as is Ang, and has moved on. WHY her followers on this board can’t is beyond me. Oh T-bone, it’s nice to be missed. I know you and MM/Margaret miss me when I don’t come on and participate in the daily Angelina banter. Oh, I forgot Ergfart, I’m sure she/he missed me too. Maybe I can spare some time tomorrow. Now go to bed!

  37. jannre

    If she does take a year off from trying to act..which is a BIG IF,,she will probably drag those kids to the ends of the earth to try and adopt a few more orphans..how else will she keep herself in the news…

  38. Margaret

    I was just reminded of something by a friend. Isn’t Angelina scheduled to film the Changeling and Atlas Shrugged movies later this year? I guess, as Kim has said, she meant it now but will change her mind. After all, unless it’s in the New York Times, Angelina will never read that she was caught.

  39. Anonymous

    Angelina & Brad in love? Doubt it. More likely they are in heat. Hahahaha.

  40. claudia

    Dorothea, well said about our one and only way to respond to ‘terrorists’
    Too bad people like Margaret just use the same old argument–what would the 911 families say?
    The pain of the tragedy is too close for them—they have a right to their emotions.
    The west was warned time and again that its policies in the middle east would lead to retaliation. How would we like it if Arab states or Russia or even the Europeans planted thousands of their troops in the United States?
    The thought is inconceivable yet we do it in the middle east. Margaret, stop living in your ignorant world. Read, learn and wake up. The Americans that died in 911 were innocent victims. But the policies of their government created and sustains the environment that makes all Americans unsafe today.

  41. liamia

    Why is it that everytime someone wants to discuss ways to stop terrorism without going to war, people bring up 9/11? That tragedy is not a little black dress that can be pulled out to stop a discussion. In Iraq we are not even fighting the people responsible for 9/11. The Iraq-9/11 connection was a LIE. But we invaded Iraq anyway and now we have more hate directed towards the US. We are creating a vicous cycle that will never end.

  42. “none of your damn business”

    Kimmie, I beg to differ sweet-cheeks. It is my damn business as this couple is plastered in my face 24/7. Their fault, not mine.

    And why in “gods name” do you loonies always bring up Aniston? That was two years ago. Nothing to do with Holy Jolie.

    Double up your valium dosage and relax.

  43. HANG ON!

    Margaret, PLEASE tell me she is not involved in a remake of the George C. Scott classic “The Changeling”!!!! It’ll be a train-wreck!

    Oh, Poor, Poor, MJK, Get over yourself, and the drugs You are about as slick and intelligent as a bag of rocks. Sadly you are the elepant, and more sadly you wont just go away, this family is how they wish to be, live how they wish to live, and you wishing that their life is differnt than it is, because you want them to be unhappy, is just not going to happen any time soon. You bore me as always.

    LOL,, Hi MJK, How ya doing,, LOLOLOL

  46. T-bone

    THIS post is STILL going???? WOW!!! Love it. Love the banter!

    But the Holy Jolies (Brangeloonies, Angie-worshipers etc…etc…) always lose their cool when posting. I think you take your woshiping love for Angie just a little too seriously. CASE & POINT: Cynthis is Boss and Lookwhatisteppedin. Poor things :( Calm down. If this isn’t somewhat fun for you – -get off the site! If you find yourselves getting enraged, then this isn’t the place for you. Need I say it again? We’re all out on a SNARKY GOSSIP WEBSITE — HELLO????

  47. TS

    I don’t like her or him. I don’t care how pretty they are or how many orphans they adopt. They’re annoying.

  48. Sigh

    Givemeabreak, yes, LOADS of these people must NOT have a job. They are on here all day. T-bone especially. Spending their whole day on these boards. Always about Brangelina too. It’s hilarious.You all know who you are. LOL!

  49. Sigh..this is pot, hello kettle.

  50. Zekers

    I will say that Angelina has to have some decent brain cells up there if she passed her pilot’s and instrument rating exams…they are tough and I mean tough. The practical application, not as bad but the written is comprehensive, long and tough! Think bar exam. And yes, I think that is a good thing, keeps some of the idiots out of the sky.
