Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it,for having been allowed to walk where I’ve walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above.

– by Gia Marie Carangi 1960-198

It was the first time I saw Angelina Jolie on screen, portraying Gia (1998) and I was seduced by her beauty, acting talent and intelligence.  Through the years, I saw her seemingly “symbiotic” life which she never denied.  She is head strong to live her life as she really wanted it to be!

I applaud her taking part of humanitarian movement and giving 1/3 of her income for its cause.  I admire her honesty and personality. I am sad when people bitch slapped her romantic choices in life,  constantly pointing to her mistakes and weaknesses.

Who are we to judge?

There is this work of art — a painting entitled Blessed Art Thou — that employs saintly-looking images of Angelina Jolie and her kids.  As usual, a lot of criticisms or controversies came from different religious groups.  Oh those Pharisee! When are they going to learn to stop claiming the judgement throne??

Her rocky personal life, philanthropy works, and movie star status give me a lot to think about.  She is a complete woman. She is a real human being: a sinner and saint!

NEXT: ANJELINA JOLIE ‘s QUOTES

 Angelina Jolie QUOTES

  • We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly… Only after we have lost everything, are we free to do anything… Throw things out there and not be perfect and not have answers to anything and see if people understand.
  • Because I am a bad girl, people always automatically think that I am a bad girl. Or that I carry a dark secret with me or that I’m obsessed with death. The truth is that I am probably the least morbid person one can meet.
  • If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do.
  • I would like to be open with the public. I would like to not keep secrets or be careful when I talk. I don’t want to have to plan things…I want to be outspoken.
  • I want to say my opinions and I hope they’re taken in the right way. I don’t want to stop being free. And I won’t.
  • I’ve realized that being happy is a choice. You never want to rub anybody the wrong way or not be fun to be around, but you have to be happy.
  • When I get logical and I don’t trust my instincts – Thats when I get in trouble.
  • People will always say all sorts of stuff. Let them. I’m enjoying my life.
  • Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from over mistakes.
  • To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life.
  • I never felt settled or calm. You can’t really commit to life when you feel that.
  • I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life.
  • I think you should live completely free.
  • Everyone got kind of crazy with me mentioning I was in love with a woman.
  • Honestly, I like everything, boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny.
  • I don’t think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that’s what counts.
  • I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
  • I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing.
  • I’d like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films, the people that feel they know me, they do and they don’t have misconceptions – they understand. I believe that.
  • I would like to be open with the public. I would like to not keep secrets or be careful when I talk. I don’t want to have to plan things…I want to be outspoken. I want to say my opinions and I hope they’re taken in the right way. I don’t want to stop being free. And I won’t.
  • Sometimes I think [my husband] is so amazing that I don’t know why he’s with me. I don’t know whether I’m good enough. But if I make him happy, then I’m everything I want to be.
  • I’m happy being myself, which I’ve never been before. I always hid in other people, or tried to find myself through the characters, or live out their lives, but I didn’t have those things in mine.
  • Oh, God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does.
  • I have so much wrong with me, it’s unbelievable!
  • Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life.
  • Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else.
  • There’s something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
  • I need someone physically stronger than me…. I am always on top. It’s really unfortunate. I am begging for the man that can put me on the bottom. Or the woman. Anybody that can take me down.
  • There’s something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
  • I make it a point not to buy certain magazines, not because I am against tabloids or things like that, but I want to fill my mind with valid issues in the world. I’d like there to be less refugees. I’d like all girls to go to school. That’s what we need to be thinking about, and working on making our own families good and strong and our own kids happy. Not to cloud our minds with things that don’t matter.
  • Today show interview, June 8, 2005

  • Yeah, but before anything, I think in 6 years somehow I’ve grown up to have a beautiful home, 2 beautiful stepchildren, a beautiful husband, my family is healthy and happy. I’m financially ok and I do what I love for a living. That’s what I think, and I think god, how did I get so lucky.
  • I’m just honest, I like that I don’t have to worry about what I say. I really don’t have the time or energy to pretend and I don’t want to live that way.

interview, Jun. 13, 2001

  • With doing the movies I’ve done I don’t think I would be half the person I am today.
  • We’re all just big kids. That’s all we are. We are artistes. We grew up wanting to be part of the fantasy of the fairy tales and the stories.

interview, Mar. 2, 2002

  • I’m getting a wrinkle above my eyebrow because I just can’t stop lifting it, and I love that you know.
  • I want to take time to understand life. I want to travel. I want to be a better person, a better Mom. I want to do something good with my life.

interview, Nov. 22, 2004

  • Oh, God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does. I have so much wrong with me, it’s unbelievable!
  • Now they can do all these magic things with computers. So you think you get to do something in a movie and you find out you don’t get to really do it.

interview, May 23, 2003<7p>

  • I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. Which is a problem when I’m walking down the street.
  • If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I’m not frightened by anyone’s perception of me
  • I don’t see myself as beautiful, because I can see a lot of flaws. People have really odd opinions. They tell me I’m skinny, as if that’s supposed to make me happy.
  • If you have enough people sitting around telling you you’re wonderful, then you start believing you’re fabulous, then someone tells you you stink and you believe that too!
  • In countries where people have to flee their homes because of persecution and violence, political solutions must be found, peace and tolerance restored, so that refugees can return home. In my experience, going home is the deepest wish of most refugees.
  • BBC News interview, Apr. 8, 2004

  • I’m extremely honest, and I pride myself on it. I don’t try to be shocking. I’m playful, and I know when something I’m saying is maybe shocking, but it’s just the truth, I never wanted to be scary to people or upsetting to people. I simply want to live the way I need to live.
  • I think all women go through periods where we hate this about ourselves, we don’t like that. It’s great to get to a place where you dismiss anything you’re worried about. I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.
  • We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
  • I’ve been reckless, but I’m not a rebel without a cause.
  • They’re right to think that about me, because I’m the person most likely to sleep with my female fans, I genuinely love other women. And I think they know that.
  • I didn’t really want to live, so anything that was an investment in time made me angry . . . but also I just felt sad. When the hopelessness is hurting you, it’s the fixtures and fittings that finish you off.
  • I seem to be getting a lot of things pushed my way that are strong women. It’s like people see Hackers and they send me offers to play tough women with guns, the kind who wear no bra and a little tank top. I’d like to play strong women who are also very feminine
  • “I am the disciplinarian,” she says. “Brad can be, but if Z doesn’t get the bottle from me, she’ll very quickly run to Daddy.
  • People interview, 2006

  • Usually all my tattooscame at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you’ve made a self-discovery, or something you’ve come to a conclusion about.

    hmmm ross – – didn’t know you are a fan.

    I like her but just like your heading – sinner or saint – I am confused as well whether I like her or not. I am fascinated by her and she does have the looks, the heart, and the mind that I want to possess. Not sure about the Brad thing though.

    Great post! I have to read her quotes.. I think I can pick up something here.

    I’m not a fan because I don’t consider myself as an ardent follower or enthusiastic devotee of Angelina.

    Hi Becky,

    thanks for passing by again…I’m not neurotically obsessed by her too and I am not a fan either. Didn’t watch her famous Tomb raider…
    only Hackers, Gia, Girls, interrupted, Original Sin and Mr and Mrs Smith

    Ei Rosssss….been a long while…

    I like the characters she play and she does play them real good! I’m not a fan, but her moves (whether real or fake—we know what magic the technology can do)…I’d like to be as agile and flexible…but I guess, only in my dreams… 🙁

    Actually, I like to be like Steven Segal, Cynthia Rothrock, Cynthia Luster, Jacky Chan, etc…who are good with their craft not only in reel but in real…

    I’ve been busy…so I missed so much I guess…so I’ll hop around and see what I missed… 😉

    I’m back!!! 😀 How can I miss passing by? 🙂

    Well, it depends on the kind of action. What I like about martial arts in general is the ability to move quickly and be on guard…actually I like to learn how to do aikido because it’s purely defensive. Women need to know how to defend themselves.

    But actions that are pure riot and violence, rarely do I watch them. I like to watch mystery/espionage movies with a touch of action and comedy. Not much into romantic films.
