Madhuri Dixit talks of the smart changes film industry has experienced - Bollywood Gossips


Madhuri Dixit talks of the smart changes film industry has experiencedMadhuri Dixit talks of the smart changes film industry has experienced

Madhuri Dixit, who has come back to Mumbai and Bollywood after being away for more than a decade feels that the Hindi film industry has undergone a sea change since she last worked in it.

"The industry and its people have become smarter now as compared to our times. Now, for everything, there is a lot of planning involved. In our times, producers would invest money just for the passion of a script but now the commercial viability is of utmost importance. I remember how back then, the shooting of a film would span over years whereas now a film is completed in three months and then goes for post production," said Madhuri who had moved to the US after tying the knot with Dr Sriram Nene, a surgeon, in 1999.

The actress, who is to be seen in Anubhav Sinha's Gulab Gang and Vishal Bhardwaj's Dedh Ishqiya, feels that not just film making but the way actors position themselves now is different, she says, "Today, more than ever, it is important for an actor to be heard � to let people know about them and what they are up to. In our times there were just 2-3 magazines but now there is a huge influx of media and as an artist you need a proper professional team to help you handle that and manage your career."

Talking of the films she has in her kitty, the diva said, "Both the films have very tight scripts and mature roles and I am looking forward to them. At this point of my life, I can't run around trees".

Well, you have a valid point here!

Dilip Kumar looks back at a life of satisfaction and some surprise - Bollywood Gossips


Dilip Kumar looks back at a life of satisfaction and some surpriseDilip Kumar looks back at a life of satisfaction and some surprise

Mumbai: On his 90th birthday Tuesday, thespian Dilip Kumar, who has regaled scores of fans over decades, recalls his journey full of surprises with satisfaction and a smile. He says it was his patience and sense of choice that helped him lead a successful career.

Q. You turn 90 on December 11. Ninety is just a number specially when one considers a life as well-lived as yours. Sir, as you look back what do you feel about the first 90 years of your life?

A. I can look back at my life with a sense of satisfaction and some surprise at certain events that have added the twists and turns to an otherwise normal, serene life.

Q. Dilip saab, in the 90 years which events would you regard as the greatest events and milestones in your astounding life?

A. My entry into the profession of acting which was most unexpected. My marriage to a beautiful girl two score years younger with whom I had declined to co-star because she was too young to be my leading-lady, my decision to challenge myself by switching over to comedy when I was being hailed for my intense tragic roles that had evoked public esteem and adulation.

Q. Every actor wants to be like you. You have defined fine and brilliant acting for six decades. You have spawned generations of admirers from Mr. Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan. How do you evaluate your own contribution as an actor?

A. I have seriously pondered over this because the question has been put to me so many times. I guess it is a normal instinct to follow an example if you are drawn to it for whatever attributes you admire in that example. An actor should possess a strong instinct, besides a mind of his own and a striking personality. He should be able to absorb the positive and delete the negative from the influences that are bound to crowd his mind. The mind has to be respected and obeyed when it tells you to accept or reject an influence.

Q. What qualities should an actor cultivate?

A. It is not for me to generalize on the dos and don`ts. Every actor I watched in my formative years had his own individualistic qualities and assets. I had the discrimination fortunately at that age : I was only 20 : to decide that I had to be patient and pick only those films I liked to work in. There were times in the early phase of my career when I needed the big money that was being offered to me after some of my films became box office hits. But I resisted accepting them because I did not relate to those scripts and propositions.

Q. Your refusal must have upset a lot of producers?

A. The producers who came to me with those offers felt they had the role of a lifetime for me, a newcomer. They advised me that it was foolish to refuse the offers when the going was so good because in show business you have to show that you are in great demand and you are extremely busy. I could have been swayed by the talk but it was my basic strength of discrimination that helped me to be firm and go by what my mind told me to do. So if you judge from my career it is the quality of patience and discrimination that paid off. It cannot be the general thumb-rule because I know of actors who worked in six films simultaneously and were gloriously happy and relaxed.

Q. Dilip saab, you have worked with the most exquisite actresses : from Madhubalaji to Sairaji. Who were your favourites, and why?

A. I was never the one to choose my co-stars. That prerogative was the producer`s and director`s. When I teamed with Meena Kumari in `Azaad`, she was also changing gears (from serious roles to comedy). We hit it off in light-hearted acting and it encouraged the makers of `Kohinoor` to cast us again in lively roles. She made a delightful co-star and we got along well outside our work because we shared a taste for good Urdu poetry.

Q. And Madhubala?

A. Madhubala was very vivacious as an artist and person. It was in `Tarana` that our pairing became noticed, though most film lovers cherish her gorgeous screen presence in `Mughal-e-Azam`. Waheeda Rehman was wonderfully sprightly in `Ram Aur Shyam` and equally intense in `Dil Diya Dard Liya`. As for Saira, it was only when we began work in `Sagina` that I realised how capable Saira was. She handled the dramatic scenes with amazing confidence and with little help from me. It clearly demonstrated her latent potential that had remained untapped in all the romantic musicals she came to be adored for.

Q. Who was your favourite co-star?

A. I have consistently rated Nalini Jaywant as a formidable co-star. She was the only actress who could take me by surprise in the final take if I was not alert enough thanks to the natural spontaneity she possessed.

Mumbai: Aishwarya Rai is perhaps the only lady from the entertainment world who is at par with the Khans in terms of popularity and an incredible fan base. She is not working on any film right now, but she is certainly not running out of job, for she is busy playing mother to her one year old daughter Aaradhya : 24 X 7.

Talking to TOI about her bundle of joy, Aishwarya said, "I feel like I know about every little aspect of motherhood already. I feel blessed to have Aaradhya in our lives."

However, the former Miss World does wonder about the constant attention that her daughter gets from people around. She said, "I don`t quite understand the obsession about her and its amusing when people ask me what we want her to become once she grows up. Arre, she is just one year old! Let her experience life and enjoy her growing up years! As a mother, I look at my parents for inspiration. If I can do even half of what they did for me, I will be a supermom!"


Nicole Kidman It's important to scare yourself - Hollywood Gossips


Nicole Kidman It�s important to scare yourselfNicole Kidman It's important to scare yourself

Nicole Kidman thinks it is important to �scare' yourself.

The �Paperboy' actress believes the only way to overcome fears is tackle them head on and admits her approach to life is what makes people view her as �fearless� : even though that is not the case.

Speaking to You Youthgossip, she revealed: �I think it's important to do things that scare you sometimes. I've been called fearless but that's not the case. I have an enormous amount of fear but I push through it.

�Sometimes it's other people who push me, sometimes I will feel terrified, but then I'll just say to myself, �What is the worst that can happen? So people don't like it, so I fall flat on my face, I hurt myself : that's OK.'

�I try to have that attitude about everything in my life, not just work.'

The 45-year-old beauty also spoke about how her husband Keith Urban : with whom she has daughters Sunday Rose, four, and 23-month-old Faith Margaret : �inspires' her and how glad she is that they didn't meet until 2005 because she thinks waiting until later in life to settle down again gave them a better chance of forging a �deep bond'.

Nicole : who is also mother to adopted children Isabella, 20, Conor, 17, with ex-husband Tom Cruise : said: �My husband inspires me. We met later in life and I think when this is the case, you have a much better chance of going to a deep place.

�My parents met when they were 23, so sometimes meeting young works for people, but for us we know who we are and where we're at.

�Keith and I have a kind of shorthand in getting to know each other. I want a very deep, monogamous relationship and I am very fortunate because because I adore him. I love him and it's that simple.'

Nicole and Keith married in June 2006.

Taylor Swift has been branded the Yoko Ono of One Direction.

There are fears the 22-year-old singer's relationship with Harry Styles might lead to the break up of the �Little Things' hitmakers, in the same way John Lennon�s widow was blamed for splitting up The Beatles in 1970.

A source said: �It's really not far off from the Yoko situation.'

Comparisons between Taylor and Yoko : who Sir Paul McCartney recently distanced from any blame following the group's split : have intensified since Harry travelled on the blonde beauty's private jet from New York to Britain, separate from the group, on Saturday (08.12.12).

A source added to The : �There was loads of room for the rest of the band in Taylor's luxury jet but he didn't even suggest they travelled together.'

One Direction : who are also made up of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne : had to fight their way through a crowd of screaming fans at London's Heathrow airport, which saw Liam given a painful Chinese burn by one of their overly enthusiastic supporters.

Harry, 18, has also been warned against hurting Taylor, who is known for penning heartfelt songs about her ex-boyfriends, to avoid being the subject of one of her future hits.

Troy Tomlinson, head of the �I Knew You Were Trouble' hitmaker's Sony Nashville label, said: �If you're going to do Taylor Swift wrong as a boy, you'll wind up in a song.'


Angelina Jolie Biography And Personal Life Detail - Hollywood Gossips


Angelina Jolie Biography And Personal Life DetailAngelina Jolie Biography And Personal Life Detail


"Angelina Jolie" ( , born "Angelina Jolie Voight"; June 4, 1975) is an American actress and director. She has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards, and was named Hollywood's highest-paid actress by "Forbes" in 2009 and 2011. Jolie promotes humanitarian causes, and is noted for her work with refugees as a Special Envoy and former Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She has been cited as the world's 'most beautiful' woman, a title for which she has received substantial media attention.

Jolie made her screen debut as a child alongside her father Jon Voight in "Lookin' to Get Out" (1982), but her film career began in earnest a decade later with the low-budget production "Cyborg 2" (1993). Her first leading role in a major film was in the cyber-thriller "Hackers" (1995). She starred in the critically acclaimed biographical television films "George Wallace" (1997) and "Gia" (1998), and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama "Girl, Interrupted" (1999).

Jolie achieved wide fame after her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001), and established herself among the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood with the sequel "The Cradle of Life" (2003). She reinforced her reputation as a leading action star with "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005) and "Wanted" (2008)-her biggest non-animated commercial successes to date-and received further critical acclaim for her performances in the dramas "A Mighty Heart" (2007) and "Changeling" (2008), which earned her a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actress. Jolie made her directorial debut with the wartime drama "In the Land of Blood and Honey" (2011).

Divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, Jolie now lives with actor Brad Pitt, in a relationship notable for fervent media attention. Jolie and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, and three biological children, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.


Born in Los Angeles, California, Jolie is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She is the sister of actor James Haven, niece of singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, and goddaughter of actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. On her father's side, Jolie is of German and Slovak descent, and on her mother's side, she is of primarily French Canadian, Dutch, and German ancestry. Like her mother, Jolie has stated that she is part Iroquois; her only known Native ancestor was a Huron woman born in 1649.

at the in 1988; Jolie can be seen behind his right shoulder

After her parents' separation in 1976, Jolie and her brother lived with their mother, who abandoned her acting ambitions to focus on raising her children. As a child, Jolie regularly saw movies with her mother and later explained that this had inspired her interest in acting; she had not been influenced by her father. When she was six years old, her mother and stepfather, filmmaker Bill Day, moved the family to Palisades, New York; they returned to Los Angeles five years later. She then decided she wanted to act and enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, where she trained for two years and appeared in several stage productions.

At the age of 14, Jolie dropped out of her acting classes and aspired to become a funeral director. She began working as a fashion model, modeling mainly in Los Angeles, New York, and London. During this period, she wore black clothing, experimented with knife play, and went out moshing with her live-in boyfriend. Two years later, after the relationship had ended, she rented an apartment above a garage a few blocks from her mother's home. She graduated from high school and returned to theater studies, though in recent times she has referred to this period with the observation, 'I am still at heart-and always will be-just a punk kid with tattoos.'

Jolie suffered episodes of suicidal depression throughout her teens and early twenties. She felt isolated at Beverly Hills High School among the children of some of the area's affluent families, as her mother survived on a more modest income, and she was teased by other students, who targeted her for being extremely thin and for wearing glasses and braces. She found it difficult to emotionally connect with other people, and as a result she started to self-harm; later commenting, 'I collected knives and always had certain things around. For some reason, the ritual of having cut myself and feeling the pain, maybe feeling alive, feeling some kind of release, it was somehow therapeutic to me.' She also began experimenting with drugs; by the age of 20, she had tried 'just about every drug possible,' including heroin.

Jolie has had a difficult relationship with her father. Due to Voight's marital infidelity and the resulting breakup of her parents' marriage, she was estranged from her father for many years. They reconciled and he appeared with her in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001), but their relationship again deteriorated. In July 2002, Jolie-who had long used her middle name as a stage name to establish her own identity as an actress-filed a request to legally drop Voight as her surname, which was granted on September 12, 2002. In August of that year, Voight claimed his daughter had 'serious mental problems' on "Access Hollywood". In response, Jolie released a statement in which she indicated that she no longer wished to pursue a relationship with her father. She explained that because she had adopted her son Maddox, she did not think it was healthy for her to associate with Voight. In the wake of her beloved mother's death from ovarian cancer on January 27, 2007, Jolie again reconciled with her father after a six-year estrangement.


Early work: 1982; 1991-1997

When she was seven years old, Jolie had a small part in "Lookin' to Get Out" (1982), a movie co-written by and starring her father, Jon Voight. She committed to acting at the age of 16, but initially found it difficult to pass auditions, often being told that she was 'too dark.' She appeared in five of her brother's student films, made while he attended the USC School of Cinema-Television, as well as in several music videos, namely Lenny Kravitz's 'Stand by My Woman' (1991), Antonello Venditti's 'Alta Marea' (1991), The Lemonheads's 'It's About Time' (1993), and Meat Loaf's 'Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through' (1993). She began to learn from her father, as she noticed his method of observing people to become like them. Their relationship during this time was less strained, with Jolie realizing that they were both 'drama queens.'

Jolie began her professional film career in 1993, when she played her first leading role in the low-budget, straight-to-video science-fiction sequel "Cyborg 2″, as Casella 'Cash' Reese, a near-human robot, designed to seduce her way into a rival manufacturer's headquarters and then self-detonate. Jolie was so disappointed with the film that she did not audition again for a year. Following a supporting role in the independent film "Without Evidence" (1995), Jolie starred as Kate 'Acid Burn' Libby in her first Hollywood picture, "Hackers" (1995). "The New York Times" wrote, 'Kate (Angelina Jolie) stands out. That's because she scowls even more sourly than her co-stars and is that rare female hacker who sits intently at her keyboard in a see-through top. Despite her sullen posturing, which is all this role requires, Ms. Jolie has the sweetly cherubic looks of her father, Jon Voight.' The movie failed to make a profit at the box office, but developed a cult following after its video release.

She next appeared in the 1996 comedy "Love Is All There Is", a modern-day loose adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet" set among two rival Italian family restaurant owners in The Bronx, New York. In the road movie "Mojave Moon" (1996) she played a young woman who falls for Danny Aiello's middle-aged character, while he develops feelings for her mother, played by Anne Archer. That same year, Jolie also portrayed Margret 'Legs' Sadovsky, one of five teenage girls who form an unlikely bond in the film "Foxfire" after they beat up a teacher who has sexually harassed them. The "Los Angeles Times" wrote about her performance, 'It took a lot of hogwash to develop this character, but Jolie, Jon Voight's knockout daughter, has the presence to overcome the stereotype. Though the story is narrated by Maddy, Legs is the subject and the catalyst.'

In 1997, Jolie starred with David Duchovny in the thriller "Playing God", set in the Los Angeles underworld. The movie was not well received by critics; Roger Ebert noted that 'Angelina Jolie … finds a certain warmth in a kind of role that is usually hard and aggressive; she seems too nice to be Blossom's girlfriend, and maybe she is.' She then appeared in the television film "True Women" (1997), a historical romantic drama set in the American West and based on the book by Janice Woods Windle. That year, she also appeared as a stripper in the music video for 'Anybody Seen My Baby?' by the Rolling Stones.

Breakthrough: 1998-2000

Jolie's career prospects began to improve after she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in TNT's "George Wallace" (1997). She portrayed Cornelia Wallace, the second wife of Alabama Governor George Wallace, played by Gary Sinise. The film was very well received by critics and won, among other awards, the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film. Jolie also received an Emmy Award nomination for her performance.

In 1998, Jolie starred in HBO's "Gia", portraying supermodel Gia Carangi. The film chronicled the destruction of Carangi's life and career as a result of her addiction to heroin, and her decline and death from AIDS in the mid-1980s. Vanessa Vance from noted, 'Angelina Jolie gained wide recognition for her role as the titular Gia, and it's easy to see why. Jolie is fierce in her portrayal-filling the part with nerve, charm, and desperation-and her role in this film is quite possibly the most beautiful train wreck ever filmed.' For the second consecutive year, Jolie won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award. She also won her first Screen Actors Guild Award.

In accordance with Lee Strasberg's method acting, Jolie preferred to stay in character in between scenes during many of her early films, and as a result had gained a reputation for being difficult to deal with. While shooting "Gia", she told her then-husband Jonny Lee Miller that she would not be able to phone him: 'I'd tell him: 'I'm alone; I'm dying; I'm gay; I'm not going to see you for weeks." After "Gia" wrapped in 1997, Jolie announced that she had given up acting for good, because she felt that she had 'nothing else to give.' She separated from Miller and moved to New York, where she enrolled at New York University to study filmmaking and attend writing classes; she later described it as 'just good for me to collect myself.' Encouraged by her Golden Globe Award win for "George Wallace" and the positive critical reception of "Gia", she resumed her career.

Jolie returned to film in the 1998 gangster movie "Hell's Kitchen". Later that year, she appeared in "Playing by Heart", part of an ensemble cast that included Sean Connery, Gillian Anderson, Ryan Phillippe, and Jon Stewart. The film received predominantly positive reviews, and Jolie was praised in particular. The "San Francisco Chronicle" wrote, 'Jolie, working through an overwritten part, is a sensation as the desperate club crawler learning truths about what she's willing to gamble.' Jolie won the Breakthrough Performance Award from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

In 1999, she starred in the comedy-drama "Pushing Tin", alongside John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton, and Cate Blanchett. The film received a mixed reception from critics, and Jolie's character-Thornton's seductive wife-was particularly criticized. "The Washington Post" wrote, 'Mary (Angelina Jolie) is a completely ludicrous writer's creation of a free-spirited woman who weeps over hibiscus plants that die, wears lots of turquoise rings and gets real lonely when Russell spends entire nights away from home.' She then co-starred with Denzel Washington in "The Bone Collector" (1999), an adaptation of a crime novel by Jeffery Deaver. Jolie played a police officer haunted by her cop father's suicide, who reluctantly helps Washington track down a serial killer. The movie grossed $151 million worldwide, but was a critical failure. The "Detroit Free Press" concluded, 'Jolie, while always delicious to look at, is simply and woefully miscast.'

Jolie next took the supporting role of the sociopathic mental patient Lisa Rowe in "Girl, Interrupted" (1999), an adaptation of author Susanna Kaysen's memoir of the same name. While Winona Ryder played the main character in what was hoped to be a comeback for her, the film instead marked Jolie's final breakthrough in Hollywood. She won her third Golden Globe Award, her second Screen Actors Guild Award, and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. "Variety" noted, 'Jolie is excellent as the flamboyant, irresponsible girl who turns out to be far more instrumental than the doctors in Susanna's rehabilitation.'

In 2000, Jolie appeared in her first summer blockbuster, "Gone In 60 Seconds", in which she played Sarah 'Sway' Wayland, the ex-girlfriend of car thief Nicolas Cage. The role was small, and "The Washington Post" criticized that 'all she does in this movie is stand around, cooling down, modeling those fleshy, pulsating muscle-tubes that nest so provocatively around her teeth.' She later explained that the film had been a welcome relief after the emotionally heavy role of Lisa Rowe. It became her highest grossing movie up until then, earning $237 million internationally.

International success: 2001-present

Jolie at the .

Although highly regarded for her acting abilities, Jolie's films to date had often not appealed to a wide audience, but "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001) made her an international superstar. An adaptation of the popular "Tomb Raider" videogame, Jolie was required to learn an English accent and undergo extensive martial arts training to play the title role of Lara Croft. She was generally praised for her physical performance, but the movie generated mostly negative reviews. "Slant" commented, 'Angelina Jolie was born to play Lara Croft but director Simon West makes her journey into a game of Frogger.' The movie was an international success nonetheless, earning $275 million worldwide, and launched her global reputation as a female action star.

Jolie then starred opposite Antonio Banderas as his mail-order bride in "Original Sin" (2001), a thriller based on the novel "Waltz into Darkness" by Cornell Woolrich. The film was a major critical failure, with "The New York Times" noting, 'The story plunges more precipitously than Ms. Jolie's neckline.' In 2002, she starred in "Life or Something Like It" as an ambitious television reporter who is told that she will die in a week. The film was poorly received by critics, though Jolie's performance received positive reviews. CNN's Paul Clinton wrote, 'Jolie is excellent in her role. Despite some of the ludicrous plot points in the middle of the film, this Academy Award-winning actress is exceedingly believable in her journey towards self-discovery and the true meaning of fulfilling life.'

Jolie reprised her role as Lara Croft in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" (2003), which established her among Hollywood's highest-paid actresses. The sequel was not as lucrative as the original, earning $156 million at the international box office. She appeared in the music video for Korn's 'Did My Time', which was used to promote the film. She next starred in "Beyond Borders" (2003), as a socialite who joins aid workers in Africa and Asia. The film reflected Jolie's real-life interest in promoting humanitarian relief, but it was critically and financially unsuccessful. The "Los Angeles Times" wrote, 'Jolie, as she did in her Oscar-winning role in "Girl, Interrupted", can bring electricity and believability to roles that have a reality she can understand. She can also, witness the "Lara Croft" films, do acknowledged cartoons. But the limbo of a hybrid character, a badly written cardboard person in a fly-infested, blood-and-guts world, completely defeats her.'

In 2004, Jolie starred alongside Ethan Hawke in the thriller "Taking Lives". She portrayed an FBI profiler summoned to help Montreal law enforcement hunt down a serial killer. The movie received mixed reviews and "The Hollywood Reporter" concluded, 'Angelina Jolie plays a role that definitely feels like something she has already done, but she does add an unmistakable dash of excitement and glamour.' She also provided the voice of the angelfish Lola in the DreamWorks animated movie "Shark Tale" (2004), and had a brief appearance in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" (2004), a science fiction adventure film shot entirely with actors in front of a bluescreen. That same year, Jolie played Olympias in "Alexander", about the life of Alexander the Great. The film failed domestically, which director Oliver Stone attributed to disapproval of the depiction of Alexander's bisexuality, but it succeeded internationally, with revenue of $139 million outside the United States.

Jolie then starred opposite Brad Pitt in the 2005 action-comedy "Mr. & Mrs. Smith", which tells the story of a bored married couple, John and Jane Smith, who find out that they are both secret assassins. The film received mixed reviews, but was generally lauded for the chemistry between the two leads. The "Star Tribune" noted, 'While the story feels haphazard, the movie gets by on gregarious charm, galloping energy and the stars' thermonuclear screen chemistry.' The movie earned $478 million worldwide, making it the seventh-highest grossing film of 2005.

Jolie as on the set of " in 2007

Jolie next appeared in Robert De Niro's "The Good Shepherd" (2006), a film about the early history of the CIA, as seen through the eyes of Edward Wilson, an officer based on James Jesus Angleton and played by Matt Damon. Jolie played the supporting role of Margaret 'Clover' Russell, Wilson's neglected wife. According to the "Chicago Tribune", 'Jolie ages convincingly throughout, and is blithely unconcerned with how her brittle character is coming off in terms of audience sympathy.'

In 2007, Jolie made her directorial debut with the documentary "A Place in Time", which captures daily life in 27 locations around the world during a single week. The film was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and was intended for distribution to high schools through the National Education Association. Jolie then starred as Mariane Pearl in the documentary-style drama "A Mighty Heart" (2007). Based on Pearl's memoir of the same name, the film chronicles the kidnapping and murder of her husband, "The Wall Street Journal" reporter Daniel Pearl, in Pakistan. "The Hollywood Reporter" described Jolie's performance as 'well-measured and moving,' played 'with respect and a firm grasp on a difficult accent.' Jolie was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance. She also played Grendel's mother in the animated epic "Beowulf" (2007), which was created through the motion capture technique.

Jolie co-starred alongside James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman in the 2008 action movie "Wanted", an adaptation of Mark Millar's graphic novel of the same name. The film received predominately favorable reviews and proved an international success, earning $342 million worldwide. She also provided the voice of Master Tigress in the DreamWorks animated movie "Kung Fu Panda" (2008). With revenue of $632 million internationally, it became the third-highest grossing film of 2008. That same year, Jolie took on the lead role in Clint Eastwood's drama "Changeling". Based in part on the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders, the film stars Jolie as Christine Collins, who is reunited with her kidnapped son in 1928 Los Angeles-only to realize the boy is an impostor. The "Chicago Tribune" noted, 'Jolie really shines in the calm before the storm, the scenes … when one patronizing male authority figure after another belittles her at their peril.' Jolie received nominations for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a BAFTA Award.

Jolie on the " panel at the in 2010

Jolie next starred in the 2010 thriller "Salt", her first film in two years. She starred alongside Liev Schreiber as CIA agent Evelyn Salt, who goes on the run after she is accused of being a KGB sleeper agent. Originally written as male, the character Salt underwent a gender change after a Colombia Pictures executive suggested Jolie for the role to director Phillip Noyce. The film was an international success with revenue of $294 million. It received mixed to positive reviews, with Jolie's performance earning praise; "Empire" remarked, 'When it comes to selling incredible, crazy, death-defying antics, Jolie has few peers in the action business.' She also starred opposite Johnny Depp in "The Tourist" (2010), which was a major critical failure. Peter Travers wrote, 'Depp and Jolie hit career lows, producing the chemistry of high-fashion zombies.' After a slow start at the domestic box office, the film went on to gross $278 million worldwide. Jolie received a controversial Golden Globe Award nomination, which was speculated to have been given merely to ensure her high-profile presence at the awards ceremony.

In 2011, Jolie reprised her voice role as Master Tigress in the animated DreamWorks sequel "Kung Fu Panda 2″. It became the fourth-highest grossing film of 2011 and Jolie's highest grossing film to date, earning $666 million at the international box office. She also made her directorial feature debut with "In the Land of Blood and Honey" (2011), a love story between a Serb soldier and a Bosniak prisoner of war, set during the 1992-95 Bosnian War. Jolie, who had twice visited Bosnia-Herzegovina in her capacity as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, explained that she made the film to rekindle attention for the survivors of a war that took place in recent history. The film, which Jolie also scripted and co-produced, aroused both praise and criticism in the Balkans; the response from Bosniak war-victims advocacy organizations was 'overwhelmingly positive,' while a Serb war prisoners group decried the film for its alleged anti-Serb bias. Sarajevo's regional government named Jolie an honorary citizen of the capital for raising awareness of the war. "In the Land of Blood and Honey" won the Stanley Kramer Award from the Producers Guild of America, which honors films that highlight provocative social issues. It also received a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Jolie will play the Disney villain Maleficent in the upcoming film of the same name, where the character's background story will be revealed.



Jolie had a serious boyfriend for two years from the age of 14. Her mother allowed them to live together in her home, of which Jolie later said, 'I was either going to be reckless on the streets with my boyfriend or he was going to be with me in my bedroom with my mom in the next room. She made the choice, and because of it, I continued to go to school every morning and explored my first relationship in a safe way.' She has compared the relationship to a marriage in its emotional intensity, and said that the breakup compelled her to dedicate herself to her acting career at the age of 16.

During filming of "Hackers" (1995), Jolie had a romance with British actor Jonny Lee Miller, her first lover since the relationship in her early teens. They were not in touch for many months after production ended, but eventually reconnected and married soon after on March 28, 1996. She attended her wedding in black rubber pants and a white T-shirt, upon which she had written the groom's name in her blood. Jolie and Miller separated in September 1997 and divorced on February 3, 1999. They remained on good terms, and Jolie later explained, 'It comes down to timing. I think he's the greatest husband a girl could ask for. I'll always love him, we were simply too young.'

Jolie and her partner at the premiere of " in 2007

Jolie had a brief relationship with model-actress Jenny Shimizu on the set of "Foxfire" (1996). She later said, 'I would probably have married Jenny if I hadn't married my husband. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her.' Shimizu claimed in 2005 that her relationship with Jolie had lasted many years and continued even while Jolie was romantically involved with other people. In 2003, asked if she was bisexual, Jolie responded, 'Of course. If I fell in love with a woman tomorrow, would I feel that it's okay to want to kiss and touch her? If I fell in love with her? Absolutely! Yes!'

After a two-month courtship, Jolie married actor Billy Bob Thornton on May 5, 2000, in Las Vegas. They met on the set of "Pushing Tin" (1999), but did not pursue a relationship at that time as Thornton was engaged to actress Laura Dern. As a result of their frequent public declarations of passion and gestures of love-most famously wearing one another's blood in vials around their necks-their marriage became a favorite topic of the entertainment media. Jolie and Thornton announced the adoption of a son from Cambodia in March 2002, but abruptly separated three months later. Their divorce was finalized on May 27, 2003. Asked about the sudden dissolution of their marriage, Jolie stated, 'It took me by surprise, too, because overnight, we totally changed. I think one day we had just nothing in common. And it's scary but… I think it can happen when you get involved and you don't know yourself yet.'

In early 2005, Jolie was involved in a well-publicized Hollywood scandal when she was accused of being the reason for the divorce of actors Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. She and Pitt were alleged to have started an affair during filming of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005). She denied this on several occasions, but later admitted that they 'fell in love' on the set. She explained in 2005, 'To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.' Jolie and Pitt did not publicly comment on the nature of their relationship until January 2006, when Jolie confirmed to "People" that she was pregnant with Pitt's child. Pitt and Jolie announced their engagement in April 2012, after seven years together. The couple-dubbed 'Brangelina' by the entertainment media-are the subject of worldwide media coverage.

On March 10, 2002, Jolie adopted her first child, seven-month-old Maddox Chivan, from an orphanage in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He was born as Rath Vibol on August 5, 2001, in a local village. Jolie applied for adoption after she had visited Cambodia twice, while filming "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001) and on a UNHCR field mission. The adoption process was halted in December 2001 when the U.S. government banned adoptions from Cambodia amid allegations of child trafficking. Once the adoption was finalized, she took custody of Maddox in Namibia, where she was filming "Beyond Borders" (2003). Although Jolie and her then-husband Billy Bob Thornton announced the adoption together, she in fact adopted Maddox as a single parent.

Jolie adopted a daughter, six-month-old Zahara Marley, from an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 6, 2005. Zahara was born as Yemsrach on January 8, 2005, in Awasa. At the time of the adoption, Zahara was wrongly believed to be an AIDS orphan and it was unknown whether she herself had contracted HIV, but she later tested negative. Shortly after they returned to the United States, Zahara was hospitalized for dehydration and malnutrition. In November 2007, media outlets reported that Zahara's biological mother wanted her daughter back, but she denied these reports, saying she thought Zahara was 'very fortunate' to have been adopted by Jolie.

Jolie was accompanied by her partner Brad Pitt when she traveled to Ethiopia to take custody of Zahara. She later indicated that she and Pitt had made the decision to adopt from Ethiopia together. In December 2005, Pitt's publicist announced that Pitt was seeking to adopt Maddox and Zahara. To reflect this, Jolie filed a request to legally change her children's surnames from Jolie to Jolie-Pitt, which was granted on January 19, 2006. The adoptions were finalized soon after.

In an attempt to avoid the media frenzy surrounding their relationship, Jolie and Pitt went to Namibia for the birth of their first biological child. On May 27, 2006, Jolie gave birth to a daughter, Shiloh Nouvel, in Swakopmund. Pitt confirmed that their newborn daughter would have a Namibian passport. The couple decided to sell the first pictures of Shiloh through the distributor Getty Images themselves, rather than allowing paparazzi to make these valuable photographs. "People" paid a reported $4.1 million for the North American rights, while "Hello!" obtained the British rights for a reported $3.5 million. All profits were donated to charities serving African children.

On March 15, 2007, Jolie adopted a son, three-year-old Pax Thien, from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He was born as Pham Quang Sang on November 29, 2003, in HCMC, where he was abandoned soon after birth. Jolie adopted Pax as a single parent, because Vietnam's adoption regulations do not allow unmarried couples to co-adopt. The rights for the first post-adoption images of Pax were sold to "People" for a reported $2 million, as well as to "Hello!" for an undisclosed amount. In April, Jolie filed a request to legally change her son's surname from Jolie to Jolie-Pitt, which was approved on May 31, 2007. Pitt's adoption of Pax was finalized in the United States on February 21, 2008.

At the Cannes Film Festival in May 2008, Jolie confirmed that she was expecting twins. For the two weeks she spent in a seaside hospital in Nice, France, reporters and photographers camped outside on the promenade. She gave birth to a son, Knox Léon, and a daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, on July 12, 2008. The rights for the first images of Knox and Vivienne were jointly sold to "People" and "Hello!" for a reported $14 million-the most expensive celebrity pictures ever taken. The proceeds were donated to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Chris Rock Family influence my act - Hollywood Gossips


Chris Rock Family influence my actChris Rock Family influence my act

Chris Rock admits being a family man has changed his stand-up act.

The '2 Days In New York' star admits having his daughters Lola Simone, 10, and eight-year-old Zahra Savannah with his wife Malaak Compton-Rock, has influenced his comedy routine for the better as he is an expert on the perils of fatherhood and having a demanding wife.

He mused: �Does having a wife and kids change your act? Yes, but only in the best way. It gives you weight and authority. It also makes you closer to the audience because the audience is married and has kids. People without kids know nothing about kids. Jokes about your kids are always better than jokes about your brother's kids.

�Married guys know more about women than single guys. Single guys have girlfriends. Girlfriends are always auditioning, always on their best behaviour. Wives are like Supreme Court justices : they do whatever the f**k they want.'

Despite giving him a wealth of material to work with, Chris is adamant he would never air his family's private business on stage and makes sure to keep his jokes generic so as not to offend his wife.

He told : �What isn't OK to say onstage? Any of your family's business. No experience that is just theirs. I don't really worry about what they are thinking. Anything I say about women, I try to make sure that at least five or six friends of mine are going through a similar situation.

�That way I'm not picking on my wife. We like to say I have my real wife, who's a lovely woman, mother to my children. Then I have my comedy wife, who's a crazy bitch.'

Megan Fox Labour was worse than I expectedMegan Fox Labour was worse than I expected

Labour was worse than Megan Fox ever expected.

The 'Friends With Kids' star gave birth to her first child Noah with her husband Brian Austin Green in September but admitted she was unprepared for how painful it would be.

She told : 'I was screaming for an epidural when Brian was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own and I was immediately : it was level orange alert pain.

'It… can't be anything because it hurts so bad. It was so intense. And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was gonna labour to like 8 cm… but the first contraction that I got was horrific!'

Despite the pain, the 26-year-old actress still wanted to look her best during the labour.

She said: 'I had wet hair so I was trying to blow dry my hair before I went to the hospital because I didn't want to go to the hospital with wet hair.'

The 'This Is 40′ star is finding it difficult to adjust to parenthood but says it is worth it because she is so besotted with her son.

She added: 'It's exhausting, but it's amazing and you can't, until you have kids, you can't imagine how much you could possibly love a human being. It's really intense and really over whelming and amazing. He's super cute.'

Reese Witherspoon is �slowly crawling' back to her pre-baby weight.

The actress gave birth to Tennessee James, her son with husband Jim Toth, two months ago but admitted she is finding it a struggle to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.

She told : �I don't know if I'm bouncing back. I'm slowly crawling back. You know, all of your joints feel wobbly, and your head is sort of confused.

�You just have to be gentle and patient with yourself and just sort of, you know�slowly get back to your health.'

Reese, 36, is smitten with Tennessee and recently gushed about what a �beautiful, brilliant, joyful, perfect baby' he is.

Speaking about a friend who recently called her on the way to hospital shortly before she was due to give birth, Reese said: �She wanted to know how she was going to feel in that moment and what it would be like when you meet your baby for the very first time.

�And I was talking to Jim, my husband, and I said, �Can you imagine describing that moment of pure joy that happens when your child is in your arms for the very first time.' I mean, what are the words?!

�We are parents that know the joy of having a beautiful, brilliant, joyful, perfect baby. That somehow heaven has opened up and delivered us an angel [who] looks adorable in every angle of an iPhone photo. And, in my case, looks gorgeous printed on a bag or a pillow or an iPhone cover : anything you can get on TinyPrints!'


Judd Apatow Jim Carrey is funniest man on earth - Hollywood Gossips


Judd Apatow Jim Carrey is funniest man on earthJudd Apatow Jim Carrey is funniest man on earth

Judd Apatow thinks Jim Carrey is the 'funniest man on earth'.

The influential producer and director once toured as the opening act for Jim during his stand up comedy days and while Judd acknowledges there are many talented comedians working today, he thinks Jim is still the best.

Writing in Vanity Fair, he said:' When I was a stand up comedian in the late 80s, I used to open for Jim Carrey on the road. I would do my lame act and then he would come on and do the most energetic, inventive, uproarious set I had ever witnessed. I retired from performing as a result. He was and is the funniest man on earth. This is something we can all agree on. We can debate number two forever but Jim will always be the king.'

Jim, 50, recently splashed out $160,000 to hire a private boat for the cast and crew of his new film 'Kick Ass 2' and took them on his own guided tour of London's sights down the River Thames.

A source said: 'He didn't get a single point of interest right, but his version of London's history was much more entertaining.'

The funnyman played tour guide to the likes of Nicolas Cage, Chloe Grace Moretz and Aaron Johnson and kept his guests entertained by performing a rendition of The Proclaimers' 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)' as they sailed down the river.

Jim was celebrating landing the role of Colonel Stars in the sequel to 2010′s wacky superhero comedy after expressing his love of the original 'Kick-Ass' film by Matthew Vaughn.

Billy Connolly Weeps As He Picks Up Lifetime Achievement AwardBilly Connolly Weeps As He Picks Up Lifetime Achievement Award

Funnyman Billy Connolly wept as he received the Outstanding Contribution in Television and Film award at a special career retrospective ceremonyin Scotland on Monday (10Dec12).

The Gulliver's Travels actor was honoured after a 90-minute discussion about his career at the event, which was arranged for the comic to pick up his award in person as he was unable to attend a prize-giving ceremony last month (Nov12).

Connolly became visibly emotional after being presented with the honour by Scottish comedian Kevin Bridges, who thanked him for inspiring a generation of comics.

The funnyman wept as he spoke about the honour of receiving the recognition in his home country, prompting the audience at the Old Fruit market concert hall in Glasgow to break into applause.

He said, "This is a delightful thing, especially coming from Scotland. I've been nominated for loads of things and got b**ger all (nothing)� Genuinely, to get this from Scotland I'd say it breaks my heart. It just hits me somewhere, (to get the award) where I live."
