Angie – say it isn’t so! You apologized and everything! After receiving flack for banning certain news outlets and not allowing certain questions to be asked of her at the LAST “Mighty Heart” premiere, Angie said she was sorry and blamed it on her lawyers and PR people. That’s fine, except she did it again at the NYC movie shilling! Granted, she banned rags but ya think she’d learn!
But tipsters tell Page Six that Jolie went on to ban some entertainment weeklies, including Us Weekly and Life & Style, from speaking to her at the film’s junket on Friday at the Waldorf-Astoria – only deigning to allow access to OK! and her reliable ally, People magazine, which is inclined to swallow her p.r. hook, line and sinker.
An insider who’s worked with Jolie said, “Angelina is a control freak. She knows everything that goes and is very hands-on. It’s unbelievable to me that she wouldn’t know exactly what was going on at all times.”
Granted she probably banned “Life & Style” because they have people like J. Harvey in the back spitting on celebrity outfits and it’s not exactly a BASTION of journalism. But it has words! In print! On glossy pages! How dare she censor the truth!
