In the most hypocritical move ever, Angelina Jolie tried to censor all her interviews yesterday while promoting A MIghty Heart, her new film about freedom of the press. Jolie had her publicists ban FOX News from the red carpet of her premiere, and then had her lawyer require all journalists to sign a contract before talking to her, which basically said nobody could talk about her personal life and that “the interview may only be used to promote the Picture. In no event may Interviewer or Media Outlet be entitled to run all or any portion of the interview in connection with any other story. … The interview will not be used in a manner that is disparaging, demeaning, or derogatory to Ms. Jolie.”
USA Today and the Associated Press canceled their interviews, and eventually Jolie cut off all print interviews when she heard the reaction. And if all this wasn’t hypocritical enough, the premiere was a benefit for the organization Reporters Without Borders and she’s got a tattoo on her back that says “Know your rights.” How did she go from the hottest woman on the planet to the most annoying one? Nobody would even care about this except that she’s running around the world pretending to be better than everybody else. It’s like finding out instead of helping all those starving children in Africa she’s actually been giving them wedgies.
