ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 07/27 **#11**
Apparently this A/A+ list mostly movie actress decided Lyme Disease was not a good fit for her so picked some random disease to claim she has but her explanation of it and how she is feeling with it makes no sense and runs contrary to 99% of the people who suffer from the disease. My guess is she wants a fallback position for her drug use.

Anyone else notice Angelina has been pumping out the PR machine today??

 

Well, new VF article related to two movie releases hitting festival circuit in the fall, looking for awards, so it makes sense. That's how Hollyweird works, after all.....

 

 

Ah, totally missed she has movies coming out!

Angelina Jolie's intense method of casting children is being slammed as cruel and unnecessary

http://www.businessi...ecessary-2017-7

 

 


Here's the relevant paragraph from the Vanity Fair piece:

 

"To cast the children in the film, Jolie looked at orphanages, circuses, and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship. In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie. 'Srey Moch [the girl ultimately chosen for the part] was the only child that stared at the money for a very, very long time,' Jolie says. 'When she was forced to give it back, she became overwhelmed with emotion. All these different things came flooding back.' Jolie then tears up. 'When she was asked later what the money was for, she said her grandfather had died, and they didn’t have enough money for a nice funeral.'"

 

The article goes on to explain Jolie's methods as a way of garnering raw emotion from the children, but to many the method comes off as excessive and mean-spirited.
