A disgruntled Angelina Jolie fan has filed suit against the Lili Claire Foundation. The charitable organization provides help to children suffering from medical problems and their families, but they might soon be shelling out money on behalf of the movie star.
The man who filed suit claims he won a meeting with Jolie at an auction, an adventure that cost him a cool thirty grand ($30,000). The only trouble is, he never got to meet the star…and he never got his money back, either.
Now that two years have passed, the fan has decided to take legal action against the charitable foundation. Think they could get Angie to pop over and cool his ire a little?

Nadya Suleman appeared one day out of nowhere, and now she’s a huge media celebrity. Hardly a day goes by without a new headline or feature interview, juicy rumors and breaking developments. This mother of fourteen has never starred in a movie or had a recurring role in a televised series. Until recently she wasn’t known for writing or speaking words that many others read and hear, and she’s never been a star of the stage.
During a recent visit with Dr. Phil, Suleman said, “I’m not a celebrity,” adding “I’m no one special.”
So…why’s she famous?

As hard as it might be to believe, Angelina Jolie does have her “off” days.
Monday night in Berlin, Jolie arrived at the Benjamin Button premiere with an ultra glam ‘do. Unfortunately, the ‘50s bouffant made the Changeling star look more matronly rather than sexy.
And, yes - your eyes are not deceiving you. Angelina also brought back another era by wearing just one Asprey earring. For all of you stuck in the ‘80s: Your time has come again!
(You can find more “unfortunate” hairstyles here.)

Let’s face it, 2008 was a wild year for all the personalities from show business that we love (and despise.)

So, what do you think? We miss anything? Should there have been a story up there that was left out? Sound off.
“I don’t love being alone like I used to,” Angelina Jolie said to Today, referring to her now long-standing relationship with Hollywood hottie Brad Pitt. “I met the right person.”
With her love life nice and stable (apparently in spite of what the media says), with her new twins now a well-established three months of age and a hot new movie ready to debut, what could Jolie possibly add to the mix? …How about another kid? Sure, she’s only got six (and counting).

In the upcoming issue of W, the world will get a chance to see intimate portraits of Angelina Jolie taken from a unique perspective. For this photo shoot (which took place just weeks after Vivienne and Knox were born), the man behind the camera was someone the subjects knew quite well: Brad Pitt.
While much has been made of the breastfeeding mom on the cover, the pictures within the issue - especially the ones involving the older children - are equally as beautiful.
To view the entire photo spread, you can pick up the November issue of W on October 21. Until then, you can see a few more snapshots on the magazine’s website or after the jump.

After keeping to her homes in France and Germany, Angelina Jolie emerged yesterday for the cameras stateside.
Jolie - who arrived in New York earlier this week - stepped out last night for a dinner with Clint Eastwood, her Changeling director, and co-star Amy Ryan. (Their movie premieres October 24.) It’s the first time she’s braved the paparazzi since the arrivals of Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
Now if this is what I could look like three months after delivering twins…sign me up!
If you’ve lost any sleep wondering if People‘s pricey gamble paid off, you can now rest comfortably. The answer appears to be yes.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the issue devoted to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s new twins was one of the magazine’s all-time best sellers. Here’s a quick look at the numbers:
- Approximately 2.6 million people paid for the opportunity to see Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon. People normally averages 1.5 million in weekly sales. (That number does not include the normal subscribers.)
- Although the issue has been on the shelves longer than normal, readers have had to pay $.50 more than normal to peruse the pictures.
- The website received 6 million unique visitors in a 24-hour period; it usually gets about 8.8 million a month.
- The spread was the 4th most-purchased in the magazine’s history. Only 9/11 and the deaths of Princess Diana and John F. Kennedy, Jr. sold more.
I guess some lucky charity will really benefit once Child #7 comes around…

If you happen to be a John McCain supporter - or if you’re for some reason undecided - whatever you do, don’t let Roseanne know.
While the Obama supporter had every right to express her opinions about Voight (especially since he wrote an Op-Ed piece blasting the Democratic candidate), her criticisms about Angelina and Brad seemed to come out of left field.

When Johnny Depp ran to France to escape the paparazzi, I’m sure he never would have imagined having to leave his tranquil paradise. Unfortunately, the very private Pirates of the Caribbean star has come to face this nightmare upon Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s recent move to the beautiful country, which forced many of their die-hard paparazzo to follow suit.
Judging by recent pictures taken of the former heartthrob, I would say that it’s safe to say that he is upset at the large influx of cameras around southern France.
His solution? Pack up and move to England!
