Angelina Jolie the Media Hypocrite -(A Mighty Heart )


Angelina Jolie is being quite the hypocrite while doing press for her new film A Mighty Heart. The film is about slain journalist Daniel Pearl and about freedom of the press. She tried to ban Fox News from the red carpet and the media censorship did not stop there.

But Jolie turns out to be a mighty hypocrite when it comes to her own freedom of the press. Her lawyer required all journalists to sign a contract before talking to her, and Jolie instructed publicists at first to ban FOX News from the red carpet of her premiere.Ironically, Wednesday night’s premiere of the excellent Michael Winterbottom-directed film was meant to support an organization called Reporters Without Borders. Jolie, however, did everything she could to clamp down on the press and control it.

Jolie’s people went on to require reporters to sign a contract before interviewing her. They had to promise to not ask any questions about her relationships and the material from the interview couldn’t be used for anything not related to the actual film.

Reporters were asked to agree to “not ask Ms. Jolie any questions regarding her personal relationships. In the event Interviewer does ask Ms. Jolie any questions regarding her personal relationships, Ms. Jolie will have the right to immediately terminate the interview and leave.”

The agreement also required that “the interview may only be used to promote the Picture. In no event may Interviewer or Media Outlet be entitled to run all or any portion of the interview in connection with any other story. … The interview will not be used in a manner that is disparaging, demeaning, or derogatory to Ms. Jolie.”
If that wasn’t enough, Jolie also requires that if any of these things happen, “the tape of the interview will not be released to Interviewer.” Such a violation, the signatory thus agrees, would “cause Jolie irreparable harm” and make it possible for her to sue the interviewer and seek a restraining order.
I am told that USA Today and the Associated Press were among those that canceled interviews, and eventually Jolie scotched all print interviews when she heard the reaction.
I wouldn’t sign it,” a reporter for a major outlet said. “Who does she think she is?”

  1. I can't believe she actually tried to have the media sign this document. She claims she didn't know her lawyers were creating the document and asking the media to sign it. She also said her lawyers apologized for the incident. I find it very hard to believe that she knew nothing about this situation. Here is the link to video with her talking about the movie and the media:

Dream Big Dreams Because You Can

Best Advice: Dream Big Dreams Because You CanDream big dreams because you can. You are never too young or too old to dream big. No one can limit you to dream big except you. Don't make excuses for dreaming big. Believe in yourself because there is something bigger and greater in you than any difficulty or struggle outside of you. Achieve your dreams by setting goals. Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines, says Brian Tracy. Writing down your goals makes them more real and more attainable; create a list of specific goals, be it on paper or on an app like Evernote. 
Remain firmly committed to your dreams. Remember that perseverance is key, no dreams happen overnight. You have to stay focused and constantly moving to make your dreams come true. There is no magic wand that will do that for you. According to Jim Rohn, when you know what you want and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it. Focus on your goals not circumstances. Dream big because you can. Dream - Belie…
