OMG, what has she done to her face?! It looks like she has had the ubiquitous "brow lift" that everyone in Hollywood and beyond is having lately. Does she not get that she is just a beautiful woman and messing with her looks is like throwing paint on a masterpiece? One of her most defining characteristics was her almond shaped eyes and now they are unnaturally round, just like everyone else's. Angelina - please STOP -- you should be overjoyed with what you were naturally blessed with and just stop messing with it!

Didn't say she wasn't "wonderful" now did I? Why so sensitive? I look at before and after photos and it's obvious something has changed. I don't think I need to apologize for noticing. I admire her. I think she's beautiful. I want her to leave her naturally given beauty alone before she looks like a modern day Lucille Ball, that's all. Why the big problem with that? Just a comment... maybe the folks who are all bent about it should stop and consider why they are so defensive on behalf of a complete stranger - ???

Peace.

"ubiquitous "brow lift""

Interesting way of using that word.

Angie looks extremely good and natural.

I'd like to think that if I had the money that she did, that I would spend so much time trying to do things for other people. You don't just go to dangerous places to try and offer hope and help people because you can't - many people don't make that choice. You don't just adopt children and raise them as yours. She made some good choices and some bad choices in her past like most people - but to try and say that her good choices - supporting refugees, being a loving parent to children she does support, trying to bring important world issues to light are outweighed by her weird youth is a bit more sour grapes than I can deal with.

It's obvious by her interview that she has been forever changed by what she has seen in her travels. To call her a "twit" when she is obviously well-spoken, by all accounts a good mother, and has done so much for so many throughout the world is ridiculous. She may be many things, but she is far from a "twit".

This is why I love this woman. She knows that looks are fleeting. She never seemed like the primping kind, and when she was really young, she did what some would consider inappropriate things, but she grew up, unlike some of her critics. People rag on her every move, but she is out there working for a cause greater than her next big movie or making it in the best dressed list.

I don't know her personally so I can presume to know whether she is a "nice" person. It doesn't really matter, though. To the children she adopted, to the children she represents, i'm sure they think she's great.

You just took the words out of my mouth; Angelina is an amazing human being. It still puzzles me why so many people dislike her, maybe due to her beauty, humanitarian nature, beautiful family, successful career or it's just simply of her relationship with Brad Pitt...every day we see so much of travesty around us, famine, war, natural disasters etc, seriously people like Angelina makes the world a better place. Is that too much for people to digest?

Angelina Jolie is simply the greatest female in existence. Anyone who doesn't realize this is obviously jealous of her beauty and overall greatness. Hopefully I will get to meet her someday and she will fall in love with me.

Uh, I admire your respect for her but isn't that a far fetched dream? I believe some people may see her as potentially dishonest in her efforts, simply attaching herself to the most tragic causes to get publicity. Just saying . . .

Truthfully, people who normally would know nothing of Darfur might have been exposed to the horrors via her in involvment, which is at least a good thing since we have turned a blind eye for so long.

Personnally, I am indifferent. I was aware of the Darfur situation prior to her involvment and then some.

But I believe her efforts are slightly over-rated.

As far as her "brood" as was mentioned before, if they're well fed, educated and loved, well that surely is a great thing.

However, I believe that the media coverage of her family is too much and that's where the haters come from.

For the record: I'm INDIFFERENT NOT HATEFULL.

Thank you.

Ditto to what you said. Our family helped raised and donate money for Darfur long before her or George Clooney's involvement. But I agree, many would not know about these horrific problems without thier involvement. And like you, the idea of being a hater is ridiculous-I don't even know the woman. The most I can say is that I don't see her movies-not my taste. Indifference is a good word.
To say she is the greatest female in existence, well, everyone is entitled to thier opinion. However, keep in mind that there are many women who do great work that goes very much unnoticed . To name a few: Somaly Mam, Jane Goodall (my personal hero, and one woman who I think is one the greatest scientists ever), Birute Galdikas, Dian Fossey (who pretty much gave her life to try to save the Mountain Gorillas), Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai, and countless other women who have fought for civil rights, made significant contributions in science and many other fields.
This is not to take away from the efforts of celebrities who bring attention to and donate to a cause that we should be aware of. It is frustrating when there are so many people fighting for these casues, many have been imprisoned and put thier lives on the line, they do the real ground work (so to speak), but rarely, get the notice they deserve. Just something to think about.

Rosy...just out of curiosity...why would you call her "brood" ridiculous?

How can a family of children be ridiculous? You've got issues, lady.
They have the money, they have the resources...they have given a home to children who would otherwise be living in orphanages or worse.

Get some help.
