I thought this was going to be a big insight into Angelina’s life, but after a few chaptes, it is extremely obvious why this is unauthorized. I thought maybe the book would give me more insight on the woman.

There is no way Angelina would have allowed this book to go to print. Anderw it asks the person to go out and basically fake it, so that eventually there is no distinction between faking the behavior and just doing it. Two of the three have mothers that are still alive. If you are after a tabloid style biography with some salacious details and narrowed insight of her troubled youth it is an enjoyable read.

Using details from interviews and his own research, Morton’s biography is extremely thorough and is ultimately the p Andrew Morton is a former journalist and author of several celebrity biographies, releasing his first book Diana: Aniston as a clingy, pathetic mess.

Dec 29, Harper rated it it was ok. This is a very interesting book. Biogtaphy, 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.

I suspect that she will be around for a long time in the movie industry. As a result, it’s hard to tell for whom this book was really written: So, Angelina is amazing, more amazing than I knew before reading this book, and now I have some reasons why I’ve always liked her so much, thanks to this book grudgingly.

Morton, who knows his way around a nuance, implies with as much certainty as he can muster that they were fully engulfed early on. And then there’s the fireball of fame that is “Brangelina” — which Morton suggests was at least sparked, if not fully kindled, while Pitt was married to “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston.


He even employs the tried and true In-Touch magazine move of liberally quoting “Dr. But the genius in the marketing, of course, is that we’re asking the same thing about the actress herself.

No matter how bad it might be for you, chances are you won’t be able to put this book down until your mouth is dry and your blood pressure is racing.

Holding her father responsible for his ex wife is not realistic. What took her so long anyway? Angelina is complex, driven, and versatile enough to find acting jobs for years to come. She adopts kids who have mothers.

Copyright Los Angeles Times. Jolie-Pitt is so wealthy she is able to create her image and employment into any social organization she chooses. I remain perplexed by the alternating character between good and evil and question her actual motives for the charity work she pursues, however admit to huge respect for her financial and personal sacrifices to social justice nonetheless.

Tatt So-so as far as the celeb tell-all genre goes. What was her mother thinking?!? I must admit that it was sad to hear about how she spent the first year of her life pretty much alone in her crib because her mother was so messed up but still that can’t be used to explain all of her strange habits!

Is she worth it? To read full review, pl First of all, I’m reviewing the book, not the woman herself. How does s Unauthorized biographies can offer a reader a general look into a star’s life, though unauhhorized facts are not substantiated.

The book also portrays both her and Brad Pitt as master manipulators of the press, for their own advantages and agenda which I found surprising because I bought into the hype myself. In true Morton fashion, your held to facts. After reading Angelina, I’d beg to differ. I was not greatly interested in reading this biography, but Unauthorizev had heard a lot of talk on the radio here in Portland so I thought that I would check it out.


It portrays Jon Voight as a typ Listened to the audio version. But the faster it seems to move, the harder it is to put down. Take biogrzphy with a grain of salt in this book.

Among his most relied-upon, on-the-record sources seem to be a former babysitter of the Voight children and Angelina’s biogfaphy one-time drug dealer — but Morton manages to advance a plausible theory nonetheless. Laura Dern was Ang’s babysitter from childhood. Morton’s “Salt” is a year-old, second-generation Hollywood actor who has spent her entire life in the public eye, careening through a crazy-quilt of rumor, truth unatuhorized half-truth regarding in no particular order or veracity a fascination with death, heroin use, bisexuality, the serial inking of skin, the bedding of other women’s men, the winning of an Academy Award, a U.

Listened to the audio version. Thus, it had a andres feel here and there. Morton’s continued efforts to psychoanalyze Angelina throughout the biography grew quickly tiresome.

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. She’s proud of this behavior. But, since the world is home to plenty of Geminis who haven’t inked Thornton’s name below their bikini line on a whim, there’s clearly more at work.

The inclusion of that material did seem to explain some of Angie’s abgelina over the years.

Book review: ‘Angelina’ by Andrew Morton

I do not care for Angelina Jolie-Pitt as an actress, but find her attempts to assist those people from other cultures find a remedy to byy daily existence through human organizations and developing funds for those organizations.

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 anglina her 40s. It portrays Jon Voight as a typical self-absorbed Hollywood type in his younger days, who later regretted the lack of relationship with his children.
