I felt an unpleasant judgmental vibe from the author about his subject, “Angie”. This is a fun, gossipy read for those times when you need a celebrity fix. It would have been great to hear more about her role as UN Goodwill ambassador but those parts don’t seem to be salacious enough to go into greater detail. Refresh and unauthorizes again.

Tattoos give her sexual pleasure. Being a child of divorce, some acting out is expected but moron an adult you understand that sometimes things just don’t work out. I really needed a break after spending 11 weeks reading Brothers Karamazov.

Oh, poor little Angelina, she’ll never be able to truly feeland so she’s forced to live a pallid, hopeless life collecting children of different colors and being a workaholic. She pretty much dumped unauthodized after her first adoption May 02, Kate rated it liked it. Actually now it is a ghetto. How did she get to be such a famous actress when most people would go running from her in horror? Thanks for telling us about the problem.

There were two big problems with this book: Dec 28, Nicki rated it it was ok Shelves: Mortton there’s anyone to blame here, according to this book, it’s the parents, since the bitter relationship between actor Jon Voight and Marcia Lynne later Bipgraphy Bertrand runs as a subplot throughout. Despite this drawback, readers will definitely leave with a better understanding of Angelina Jolie and why she continues to get a lot of press — and not just due to her beauty.

This author takes the unforgivable low road of mistaking his subject for his patient and I don’t see no Dr. Angelina Jolie is Morton’s most recent subject. Maybe that’s because, like salt, we have a craving for explanation, for back story, and Morton’s book offers a satisfying dose of both.

Although one must admit she is a beautiful woman and hopefully she is truly caring for all those children safely.

They were from Riverdale, Il, and I was raised 5 miles from there, it was or is not now a “upper crust” community. All the more power to her. Angelina’s fans already know all this stuff, while those who can’t stand her won’t like some of the more positive chapters – that is, if they even care biorgaphy read a book about an actress they don’t like.

It becomes clear that Morton really doesn’t like Angelina and just wanted to write the book because he thought she would be a good subject matter.

Wow, that was harsh but honest. I wondered about this woman, who came off as a druggie in her twenties, then a sex-magnet in her thirties, and then a supermom-slash-humanitarian in her 40s.

I don’t know why but I just don’t buy it.
