Stealing a woman's husband is bad enough, but her Oscar vehicle, too? That's cold.C'mon now -- just say no to girl-on-girl hate. Lest we forget the turd in the middle. Really, ladies...is any man's blue eyes, dimpled smile, lean physique, six-pack abs, hot hot HOT ass, decent (ahem) seeming bulge, that chisled face with the soft silken locks cascading down around it worth all of this hoopla?
Angelina Jolie will play Mariane Pearl - widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl-in a Brad Pitt-produced film originally slated for Jennifer Aniston.
"A Mighty Heart" is Mariane Pearl's agonizing account of her husband's 2002 kidnapping by Pakistani militants, who later broadcast his execution on the Internet.
Pitt kept rights to the film after breaking up Plan B, the production company he founded with Aniston. He took "Heart" and other titles to Paramount, while Aniston remained at Warner Bros. "The film will focus on the deep collaboration between people around the world in search of Daniel in 2002," Pitt said in a statement yesterday. "We hope the film can increase understanding between people of all faiths and portray the story and the people involved as honestly as possible without anger or judgment."
