Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s honeymoon seem exhausted them. The couple married in August after a private ceremony in France after more than nine years ago. Following their marriage, they are integral to Malta with their six children and are committed to work
“They’ve been working long days, often starting at 5am. They’re exhausted and, while they’ve enjoyed working together, it’s not the perfect honeymoon they’d imagined,” an insider revealed to Grazia magazine
“There isn’t much for kids to do in Gozo and the children get bored. They’ve been complaining that they miss their home comforts, and Brad and Angelina have spent a fortune shipping their favourite food, like sushi, over from the mainland to keep them happy.
“Being on the yacht was their first chance to have some fun, so they all really enjoyed it,” the source explained.
Angelina Jolie’s next directorial project is tackle famed paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey, whose quest to save elephants and rhinos put him in the crosshairs of violent poachers. But a drama out behind the scenes between married once has left producers Skydance movie entitled Africa, on a tightrope.
According to Skydance’s Sept. 19 news release, studio mogul-turned-producer Jon Peters will produce the “sweeping epic” alongside Jolie and Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg. Not mentioned was the fact that Peters’ ex-wife, Christine Forsyth Peters, also claims a stake in the film, which she began developing at Sony more than 23 years ago when her former husband was running the studio. In fact, Forsyth Peters tells THR she put the project in motion when she trekked to Kenya in 1991 and persuaded a hesitant Leakey to sign an agreement not to sue over a proposed film about him. And when Leakey lost his legs as the result of a 1993 plane crash — possibly perpetrated by poachers — Forsyth Peters claims she paid for his prosthetics
But the project languished, despite a screenplay from Oscar winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), and Sony eventually put it into turnaround. In 2012, Skydance made a play for Leakey’s story and, a source says, plunked down $6 million to extricate it, with the provision that Forsyth Peters sign off on handing over the project — something that she has not yet done.
Jada Pinkett Smith has a whole new level of respect for Angelina Jolie after she visited the great gear to help secure her star campaign against human trafficking.
As she has become an outspoken activist in the combat the illegal sex trade in modern times after establishing her Don’t Sell Bodies organisation, which aims to take an end to the exploitation of woman and kids worldwide.
Smith said “Angelina Jolie and I, we’re not friends, but when I called her about my human trafficking endeavours, she went all in. And I really appreciated that because there are not a lot of times that you can call upon people in our business and get serious help.”
“She put me in contact with the people I needed to be in contact with, she sent me books, sent me all the information she had. I’m not saying that Angelina and I are, like, girlfriends and kicking it every day, but when you call another woman who’s in a position to lend support to you and she just jumps right in there – that’s sisterhood.”
