Angelina And Brad Attend “In The Land Of Blood And Honey” Screening in Bosnia

Actress Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt attended the “In the Land of Blood and Honey” screening at Zetra Olympic center last night in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Angelina got a warm welcome from the audience and added, “I am happy to be here. I love Bosnia, I love you.”

I think Angelina looks great, and Brad looks even better.

Here’s a bit of what went down during her trip to Bosnia via Celebitchy:

According to this report at the Washington Post (read the full piece here), Angelina greeted the 5,000-strong crowd with a few words in Bosnian, then she gave a little speech in English. After the film, she got a standing ovation, which made her cry, and she said, “To share this with you means the world to me.”

At a press conference earlier in the day (in Sarajevo), Angelina talked about the need for a “wake up call” for the international community to pay attention to war crimes and atrocities in real time. She made some pointed comments about the situation in Syria too – “I am satisfied with what we made, I feel very strongly about it and I believe that its core issue — which is the need for intervention and need for the world to care about atrocities when they are happening — is very, very timely and especially with things that are happening in Syria today.” Wait… so she’s saying that we need to get involved in Syria? I mean… I understand the humanitarian argument, sure. But there’s so much more at play in Syria than encouraging America to get on a white horse and “save the day.” Will the proponents of force say that we’ll be greeted as liberators? Again? Angelina has the heart of a neo-conservative, I swear.

She also addressed concerns by the Serb community that they are being portrayed as “the bad guys” in the film: “I think it is very important that this film is out at this time and … if this film points the finger at anybody it is the international community. I understand that it’s sensitive. But I also know that the Serbian people are intelligent and open-minded people. They will know the difference between what’s been forced upon them and what they feel in their own hearts… although it’s difficult, I hope that they see intention behind it.” In a rare move, Angelina is also arranging “private screenings” for Serbs who are interested in seeing the film – she will even send the film to someone’s home, if they are interested.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival – Cinema For Peace Gala

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival – Cinema For Peace Gala, where Angelina was honored for her work in ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’.

Angelina wore a beautiful grey cashmere gown by Ralph & Russo. She looks great here, in my opinion. I love the tailored look of the dress, it suits her much more than flowy/sack dresses. Her hair and makeup is beautiful as well!  (Brad isn’t hard on the eyes either!)

Angie won an award at the gala which recognizes films that are “directed against human rights abuses, war and genocide.” While walking the red carpet, she was asked if she’d ever consider directing again.

Angelina Jolie says she’s not yet sure whether she will follow her directorial debut on the Bosnian war with another film on such serious material — but she has already written a script focusing on the conflict in Afghanistan.

Jolie, who presented her movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey” at the Berlin International Film Festival, told reporters Monday that even her husband Brad Pitt is unfamiliar with her Afghanistan idea.

She says: “I did write something on Afghanistan. Nobody’s seen it yet. Brad hasn’t seen it. It’s hidden. So I don’t know how very good it is, but it’s been a pleasure to write.”

Meantime, she says her next project is playing the villain in a Disney film — something she says her kids are much happier about.

I would really like to see this film, but I’ll wait until it’s out on DVD. Have any of you seen it? What’s your take?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie land in Sarajevo!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were in Berlin last night attending the Cinema for Peace Gala (I’ll post pictures in a bit) where Angelina won an award for her movie, ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’.

The couple hopped on a plane shortly after, and arrived in Sarajevo this morning. Angelina is set to attend the screening of her movie later tonight.

She and her ‘Moneyball’ partner will be attending a press conference while screening the movie in Zetra Olympic center.

Even though it’s expected 5,000 people will show up for the premiere tonight, it’s been reported that Serbs want nothing to do with the film. Vladimir Ljevar told The Associated Press, “There is simply no interest for this movie here, so I can’t sell any tickets.”

The film distributor added, “The fact that the Serbs are the bad guys in it is the reason why there is no interest. The film is lousy. I watched it. It has had bad reviews. It is unprofitable.”

Here are some pictures of Brad and Angie at the Sarajevo airport.

LeAnn Rimes: “I was fat”

Oh man, LeAnn Rimes REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY annoys me. This interview made me cringe. She is unbelievably annoying!!

She talks about how she used to be fat. And she’s skinny now because “I grew up!” She goes on to say “I’m almost 30, and I hear it’s all down hill after that!.” She talks about how she has set up photo shoots with the paparazzi so they’ll “leave her alone”. Uh huh. She talks about how her TMJ affects her ability to give her husband a beej (in a round about way). She is BEYOND repugnant.

Sidenote: The picture on the right is of LeAnn at the ‘Four Feathers’ premiere in 2002. As I was looking through the pictures, I saw pictures of Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts on the red carpet together (see below). Made me a little sad! He died way too young.

Anyway, LeAnn stopped by ‘Chelsea Lately’ last night to promote her new album, “Ladies and Gentlemen”, but instead talked a lot about herself.

Handler takes a swing by starting off the conversation fairly bluntly: “I know that you’ve seen me talking s—t about you.” Rimes concedes, saying that she watched the show for a laugh while going through a divorce with ex-husband Dean Sheremet, only to see Handler make fun of her.

Then Rimes strikes back moments later, when asked about being heavily photographed. “I am on the damn beach, for God’s sake … they follow us everywhere, it’s quite annoying. I’m annoyed with myself, to be honest,” Rimes says.

“Good,” Handler says.

And when asked further about the pictures, Rimes concedes to setting up some photographs — “to get people to leave me alone” — but denies any rumors swirling around her body type. “I was a baby. You’ve known me since I was 13. I was fat. Baby fat… and then, I grew up.”

“I’m getting fatter as I get older, so I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Handler says.

Rimes responds to the 36-year-old host: “I’m about to hit 30 this year. I heard it’s all downhill from there.”

UGH! Here are some new pictures of squinty LeAnn from last night’s Re: Generation Music Project world premire in Hollywood.
