Angelina Jolie: The new village witch

If you have seen the recent tabloids, you should notice a distinct attack on Angelia Jolie, ex-wife, or soon to be, of Brad Pitt. You would have to be living under a stone not to see the glossy tabloids proclaiming her to be (1) Anorexic, (2) A terrible mother. Not only that, one should have read Brad Pitt’s interview with another glossy tabloid that discusses his humility, his willingness to work with Angelina and his unbridled love for his children. Now I will break down the reality of the situation between Brad Pitt and his wife, Angelina Jolie.

Angelina_Jolie_2_June_2014_(cropped)First of all, as the daughter of John Voight, Angelina Jolie, inherited an entree into the world of Hollywood’s highest echelons of power movers: producers, directors, acting agents, casting agents, etc. She exploited this position and with true grit and relatively decent acting, garnered an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in the movie, Girl, Interrupted. Savvy, and eager for publicity, she made a public display of herself, upon winning this award by sucking face and groping one of her brothers. It’s a sad testimony on our society, the media and the movie industry that this disgusting display did not sink her career right then and there.

Moving on: Angelina Jolie has prospered in Hollywood, winning an Oscar, and other accolades, despite her reputation and a man-eater, a snatcher of other women’s men, and seriously bizarre behavior. Let’s take a brief look at her behavior that I feel no need to verify with links. She stole Billy Bob Thorton from Laura Dern, and then paraded herself around with a vial of his blood, supposedly, around her neck. Her alienation from her father, and her behavior with her brother at the Oscars fed rumors of incest between her and her father, Jon Voight. This was all part of her publicity machine. As an aside, I lived in Hollywood for over thirteen years, and I would swear on a stack of bibles that Jon Voight never touched his daughter in a manner that was unclean or illegal. He loves his daughter and their estrangement was a source of great sorrow and pain to him. Still, Angelina let the rumors fly, keeping a tight lip about her relationship with her father, creating a mystique of a victim, a wounded child who overcame a dysfunctional childhood.

Now let us turn our lens onto Brad Pitt. He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, the year when everything was supposed to fall apart. LOL They were married for ten years, an entire decade! (Speaking for myself now, I was married for ten years to my wife, and when she died in 2013, my life fell apart. I miss you Robin Anne Smith with all my heart and soul!) Well, I guess a decade of marriage with somebody didn’t really mean all that much to Brad Pitt. The story goes that Brad wanted to start a family and Jennifer wanted to concentrate on her career before starting a family. Apparently, Brad Pitt grew tired of waiting for Jennifer’s ambitions to come to fruition, and during the making of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, with co-star Angelina, he decided to make his move. He left his wife and took up with notorious man-eater, Angelina Jolie.

Divorced from Billy Bob Thorton, after a brief less-than-three-year-marriage, Angelina was ready, willing and able to snatch up Hollywood’s premier, number one leading man. She undoubtedly promised the great brood of children that he wanted and probably even said she would abandon her career for the singular honor of being his wife. Before we give up on Billy Bob, let’s not forget than Angelina was married to another man, an English actor named Jonny Lee Miller. She kicked him to the curb quite quickly when she found a better spouse, albeit the sociopath, Billy Bob Thorton, whose fame and glory would keep her in the spotlight.

So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of Brangolina. Before she even married Brad Pitt, she started adopting children from here and there. Her adoption of her first child, Maddox, occurred under a well-hidden firestorm of controversy. Maddox was born in Cambodia, where child trafficking was a serious issue. Despite that fact that she was divorcing Billy Bob Thorton, because her special status as an American movie star, the adoption was allowed to go through. (The last link is an excerpt from Wikipedia.) If you follow the link above, you will see that Angelina adopted a second child from Ethiopia. After her marriage to Brad Pitt, the two children’s names were changed from Jolie to Jolie-Pitt. How like the rich and famous who think that they can go around the world and buy babies for their own self-importance. (Yes, Mia Farrow, I’m looking at you! Mia, the self-righteous bitch who used Woody Allen, genius director, to further her career.)

So when Angelina conceived a child by Brad Pitt, they made the irresponsible decision to have the child delivered in Namibia: a war-torn, disease-ridden hell hole of a country. Well, let me tell you. This child is an American citizen. I was born in Paris, France at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine. When I was 3 months old, my father took me to the American Embassy, showed them my French-language birth certificate, and had them fill out what is called a ‘Report of Foreign Birth.’ Because of this, I am an American citizen, descended from one of the old families that created the United States, and at the same time I am a French citizen, born on French soil, and quite proud of both. So I have no doubt that the Brangelina consortium made the same effort to ensure that their one biological child could claim American citizenship.

Now let’s flash forward to 2016. Angelina’s and Brad’s marriage fell apart. Apparently, this occurred on a plane flight, when one of their many, many adopted children started acting up, and Brad, like a good father chose to chastise the child with a simple spanking. This spelled “marriage over,” after Brad had proved himself to be a loving, devoted father to this ever-growing manage, of children. I have it from good sources that Brad would be in the middle of filming a moving, and would suddenly leave the set with bags of diapers, baby food, baby formula, etc, in order to take care of his and Angelina’s ever-growing brood of children. My question is, “Where was Angelina?”  All sources, from Hollywood to London, confirm that Brad Pitt was a loving, devoted father, while Angelina Joile was busy hyping her own career and her many “humanitarian’ efforts.

The tabloids have not been kind to Angelina. Brad gave an interview to the equivalent of Time magazine of the premier, glossy tabloids, portraying himself as a humble recipient of Hollywood fame, and said that he still loved Angelina, his many children and that his only hope was to work out a good settlement. On the other hand, many other glossy and not-so-glossy tabloid have presented Angelina as anorexic, mentally-unstable and an unfit mother. Most glaring of all, is the “Nanny tells all,” expose that details an Angelina Jolie household that is “out of control.” Obviously, the Brad Pitt spin-machine is out-flanking Angelina Jolie’s.  My advice to Angelina Jolie is to hire a top-notch PR firm to take control of her public image.

Public image aside, Ms. Jolie has now become the global equivalent of the village woman who is proclaimed a witch.  She has nobody to blame but herself with her past history of bizarre behavior, man-eating and self-serving actions. Despite her attempts to present herself as a humanitarian par excellent, the world sees her for what she is, a whore.




About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
