Angelina is currently promoting her latest movie “Changeling“. According to Times Online, Angelina Jolie blinked back tears when discussing her role in the film. The role reminded her of her late mother.
She said her character, whose son goes missing, was similar to her actress mother Marcheline Bertrand, who died from cancer in 2007.
Angelina got very choked up when talking about her mother.
She was very much Christine Collins. She was very sweet and she would never get angry and she would never swear, but when it came to her kids she was fierce, so this was very much her story.”
There is already Oscar buzz around Changeling, a movie that Angelina almost turned down. She found the idea of re-enacting the true story of Christine Collins too harrowing. Collins’ son went missing in 1928. Corrupt police then returned a boy that wasn’t hers, insisting he was her missing son and throwing her into a psychiatric hospital when she disputed his identity.
“When I first read the script I couldn’t put it down and then I said no immediately. I didn’t want to go near this story.”
She changed her mind when she was unable to stop thinking about Collins’ plight.
I found it very inspiring in the end. I really wanted people to know about her as an extra piece of justice.”
In the spirit of the release of Reese Witherspoon’s holiday comedy “Four Christmases” and of course in the spirit of the holiday, Reese spoke to Extra about the strangest Christmas gift she’s ever received.
A DEAD SQUIRREL!! Yes – that is VERY strange.
My dad’s a doctor, and his patients used to always send him weird things because we grew up in Tennessee — so its country. One year they sent a dead squirrel… as dinner. So we had it in the freezer for like three years… my brother and I were daring each other to touch it for like $10.”
That must have been something to see. My stomach turns just thinking about it.
Reese confessed that she keeps her Oscar for ”Walk the Line” in her front den. We like to dress it up for Christmas. We put a little Santa hat on it and scarf because it gets cold.”
How cute is that??
Anyone care to confess their strangest Christmas gifts?

Access Hollywood has reported in an interview with the BBC, Angelina Jolie said she will soon be shifting her focus from film to family.
“I don’t plan on acting very long. I’m ready to do a few things now and fade away and get ready to be a grandma one day.”
Grandma?? Isn’t her oldest son Maddox only 7??
The mother of six would prefer to spend less time working and more time at home raising her brood with partner Brad Pitt.
Before she calls it quits, Angelina has quite a few projects in the works.
Among the films currently in development for the actress are the historical drama “The Mercenary,” the stylistic “Sin City 2,” “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: III” and the 2011 project “Pandamonium” – the follow-up to the animated hit “Kung Fu Panda.”
And once she’s done working on those projects, and several others that are in the works, Angelina is ready to walk into the sunset.
Do you think she will really retire?
This is one movie that I cannot wait to see. US Magazine, has reported The movie, “Nine” currently shooting in Italy and London isn’t scheduled to come out until December 2009 - but I already know I will be there on opening night to see the film.
With an all star cast like this it is a must see. Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Fergie, Sophie Loren and Daniel Day Lewis in one movie. It is sure to be a huge hit.
Daniel Day Lewis headlines the musical as world famous film director Guido Contini, who struggles to prepare his latest picture, while balancing the numerous women in his life – his wife, his mistress, his movie star muse, his costume designer, a fashion journalist, a whore from his childhood and his mother. Lucky Daniel – this is a huge task for anyone. All those woman in one man’s life. Good Luck!!

Sex and the City
Rumors are flying – can it be true?? A second Sex and the City movie – has been rumored to be in the works.
Kim Catrell, our lovely Samantha, was on the Paul O’Grady show in the UK and stated
“We will do the sequel next summer”
Jessica Parker quickly amended that statement with a we’re working on it. With the 1st movie grossing over $400 million – I am sure that it won’t take much arm twisting for a Sex and the City sequel. Do you think it will be as big a hit as the 1st movie or do you think it is overkill at this point??
