Angelina Jolie thinks she’s better than Madonna

Angelina Jolie has finally spoken out about Madonna’s adoption of her Malawian son, David. Angelina tells Elle U.K.:

“That’s a tough one,” she muses to the magazine. “I mean, I’m sure their hearts are in the right place. But the reality is, Malawi is a country…Well, it’s not on our list, because there’s a very limited number of countries you can adopt from.”

And then in an interview with the French magazine Gala she says a little more frankly:

“Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born,” she says. “It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.” When asked if the saga would put her off adopting more children of her own with boyfriend Brad Pitt, she told Gala, “I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to. All that should count is the happiness of her little David.” But, she added: “Brad and I want to continue to adopt, but keeping a big family uses up a lot of money.

So basically Angelina Jolie would never adopt a child from Malawi because apparently it’s illegal. Way to go, Madonna, you’ve done it again. Although what’s up with Angelina complaining about a family costing too much money? Is she afraid if she adopts another kid she won’t be able to afford that diamond spaceship she’s had her eye on?

    DAMMIT!!

    OLD news… OLD pictures…

    Maybe you need a NEW hobby.

  3. The funny thing is, the arrogant bitch is wrong. There IS a legal framework for adoption in Malawai, the argument was that MAdonna circumvented it, not that there wasn’t one.

    Hey Angie, maybe if you every read anything other than a movie script or directions on how to clean a new tatoo you wouldn’t sound like such a dumbshit…….still, you must be a good hearted person, you let Billy bob in the back door after all.

    Now hang on jsut one fine minute. “Brad and I want to continue to adopt, but keeping a big family uses up a lot of money.” Is she for real? I guess the 50 odd million dollars they’d have just doesnt quiet cut it for a family of 5. Poor Angelina. Times are tough when you’ve got Brad to wake up next to every morning and your bank account has more zeros in it then you can count…

    She looks kinda scary in that picture.

    Heeeyyyyyy i didn’t log that twice. :0(

    Damn, is that snear on her face? It’s difficult to know for sure when her lips take up 2/3 of her face.

    “Brad and I want to continue to adopt, but keeping a big family uses up a lot of money.”

    Dude. Lots of “normal” people have huge families with upwards of ten kids. How is it that she and Brad Pitt can’t afford a big family? They makes tens of millions of dollars per movie!

    Is there something against adopting unwanted American children? It’s legal! AND, you can probably get any race you want! Instead of visiting a camp in Cambodia, she could pose for photos with homeless children in urban Los Angeles or bring media attention to rural Appalacia. Should she decide that she can afford more children on $10 mill a film.

  11. BigJim

    She can adopt my cock as a tonsil scraper.

  12. cole007

    @11 – you can get whatever race you want, but the white babies go fast and cost bou-cou$$$ (bad spelling-sorry)

    Maybe she’s NOT going to turn into Mia Farrow after all…”Brand and I will buy our three children 12 Bugattis each but THAT’s IT! We’re not made of money, you know!”

    FYI – I think she’s afraid she’s going to blow all her money on junk. (Sorry Angie, but you skinny arms are just too damned skinny for me to believe you anymore…)

  13. NipsyHustle

    well considering that maddox wears $200 paper jeans and $100 vintage rock tees that he can fit for what….a season, yeah it might be expensive to have more.

  14. I can’t decide which of these twats is more repulsive.

    Wait, I can – it’s Angelina.

    katie may regret marrying tom at crabbie’s

  15. katgyrl

    so in other words Jolie is saying she’d rather take the easy route, rather than help change the unfortunate adoption situation in a country such as Malawi ? i’m not a fan of either of these girls, because neither of them has any talent, but at least Madonna’s helping pave the way for Malawai’s adoption policies to change for the better.

  16. Pointandlaugh

    You just KNOW Brad is thinking….”god Damn….another f*&&%$# 3rd world kid to haul around? WTF? And who do I need to blow to get a Venti double-mocha latte espresso here in ….(where the fuck are we now?)…..Ethiopia?”

  17. Kristin

    Yeah raising a big family is expensive- for regular people. They both have more money than the regular person so idk where this expensive bullshit is coming up.

  18. she is better than madonna, hands down

  19. theropes

    the Gollum is no better than madonna. both bring cameras to their ‘charities’, publicity whores!

  20. Cabaret

    “Angelina Jolie thinks shes’s better then Madonna…”

    You know what shes right..

  21. za-rodinu

    I’m sure the reason she can’t “afford” more children is due to the approximate $1 million a year she spends on lip gloss..

  22. spunkbubble on J.alba's face

    Tell you what, Brad has fucked that shit ragged. Look at her. She looks way busted.

  23. Cabaret

    BTW she didn’t say it was expensive or something like that she said it USES up too much money… the amount of money she has to spend on lip balm alone is astronomical

  24. justme

    She looks like Mr. Potato Head with those bootlips.

  25. Peter Coffin

    Man, keep those lip jokes coming… I love new, original humor.

  27. wedgeone

    As inane as her comments are, just remember … she IS Lara Croft.

    And I’d bang Angelina until her head explodes over Madonna and her fake British accent & wrinkly back any day of the week. Remember the Like A Prayer video?

  28. Ye. Madonna knew it :)

  29. DieFrau

    Of course she’s better than ugly old Madonna.

  30. shes too perfect, in my opinion.
    but that comment made her seem cheap even though i have no idea in the world why she would ever worry about money, for the next.. 1000 years.

  31. Sheva

    You people just don’t understand. For every kid added to the Jolie clan, there’s additional workers they must hire to feed the kid, watch the kid, in the park, take the kid to the bathroom, not to mention all the other things like go to the store with the kid and buy clothes, and then when they travel they have to add this person to the travel itenery.

    Don’t you know what does payroll when you are just scraping along with about 70 million in assets and only about 20 million or so coming every year?

  32. Ren

    Angelina just doesnt want no bitch Madonna moving in on her adoption territory.

    Maybe Angie wanted that little Malawi baby and Madonna jacked him out from under her…now Angelina is going to have to find another child to heave a Pokeball at.

    Gotta Catch ‘Em All.

  33. irapback

    Only if her lips didn’t look like my ex-boyfriend’s boyfriend’s asshole.

  34. sally strothers

    “Brad and I want to continue to adopt, but keeping a big family uses up a lot of money.”

    For god’s sake, it’s as if I never made a tv commercial – the dark ones ‘cost less than a cup of coffee’ per day. We were pretty sure that was the can’t-miss line. Jesus.

  35. sally strothers

    and your ex-boyfriend must have been pulling quite a train in the locker room…

  36. freakflag

    Whatever comes out of those lips has just GOT to be gospel.

  37. BuckTheInfernal

    She might be crazy, but she’s got a great set of DSLs. Those soup coolers could do some damage.

  38. RichPort

    Brad’s the shizzle, much hotter than Guy. I’d fuck him.

  39. The mention of money from someone as wealthy as Brangelina is really quite silly.

  40. Tabroid

    Looks like she just stepped in some white kid or something in that picture.

  41. PillowEyes

    Madonna is a moron. As is Jennifer Aniston. Anything that comes out of Angelina’s mouth has got to better than what those two morons have to say.

  42. Bell91501198

    I’d kill it.

  43. somechick

    this woman is going to need to go on welfare. she can go ring Shitney’s doorbell and live in their trailer

  44. andrewthezeppo

    Wow, I haven’t heard a quote from Angelina in a long time…now I know why. Her PR people must really encourage her to be seen and not heard.

  45. renee

    I think she may be right about her family costing too much money. I mean look at her and brad, they look like they haven’t had a decent meal in since they got together.

    And she’s also an idiot because the law in Malawi is that in order to adopt a child you have to spend a certain amout of time in the country as a citizen (2 years I think.) And adoption doesn’t just involve taking the kid home, she could leave the kid with its family and just sponcer the whole family, the adults need help too you know.

  46. renee

    #32 You forgot that they also need to hire photographers to take pictures of them being all family like and yet another photogrefer to take pics of them posing as selfless people

  47. The average kid costs something like $400,000 to raise until the age of 18. If you do it her way, it’s probably more like $1mil. So, basically, she and Brad could adopt 5-8 kids per picture and still be OK.

  48. Michael1

    I think the horror film genre is missing a whole untapped resource. Angie could have her own scare/slasher flick franchise with that mug.
