Angelina Jolie is the most famous and popular actress in all of Hollywood and her fiancé, Brad Pitt too is way up there on the A-List. She recently announced that she has no plans of retiring from acting.
And while she is going to be concentrating more on her philanthropic work, acting is not out of the cards just yet. She had hinted at the probability that she would be doing a film on Cleopatra soon and it would be her last. But it seems this is not so.
Moreover, Angie has been declared a Dame by the Queen of England for her work against sexual violence and rape. She recently attended a summit on this topic and since Angelina is so active in this regard, the queen took notice of this Hollywood phenomenon and gave her the honor of Dame.
Angelina Jolie said: “To receive an honour related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”
And to top that off Angelina is currently reported to be pregnant with twins. She and Brad were thinking of cancelling their wedding ceremony due to the pregnancy which might have complications in it.See Photos of the lovely Brangelina couple below.
A source said, "Angie started IVF treatments a few months ago. It can take a number of tries for it to work. But the goal was to be pregnant as soon as possible...Angie told me she loves the idea of being a pregnant bride and has been talking about how beautiful it will be to walk down the aisle while she's expecting. Brad is thrilled and so are the kids..."
Brangelina are alreday have six kids, three adopted and three biological. Angelina and Brad are the biological parents of Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne and have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara. But jolie still loves to have more kids.
"When [Brad and Angie] had the eggs implanted, Angelina and Brad were warned it might not take, so they didn't get their hopes up. They didn't even tell their kids about it, because they knew how high the chance of disappointment was. But the IVF worked, and now she's pregnant. Angie is so happy about it, she's already calling this her 'miracle baby,'" the source added.
But together (as Brangelina) they have finally thought it through and want to go ahead with their wedding ceremony anyway. But wait! There is more.
"Brad and Angie have decided to just go ahead with the wedding, even though she is pregnant, mainly because they know postponing it would disappoint the kids. Angie couldn't care less about having a baby bump under her dress. And a summer wedding was something they were always planning on," said a source close to the stars.
The tabloids are brimming with news of an emergency surgery that Angelina needs to stave off cancer. And she is to have this cancer surgery before her surgery for the birth of her twins.
Now, that is called taking things a complicated notch upwards. Finally, there is good news for Jolie. Her latest movie “Maleficient” has grossed $500 million at the box office.
Jolie also talked about her close relationship with 16-year-old Maleficient's co-star Elle Fanning. "She is so extremely talented, but she has also somehow, and it's a credit to her parents, maintained her kindness and humanity, and in no way feels affected by this very difficult business, so she is really a great example for women, both as an artist and as a young woman," said Jolie.See Photos of Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning below.
She added: "I hope my daughters are like her when they grow up." Jolie has three daughters, 9-year-old Zahara, 8-year-old Shiloh and 5-year-old Vivienne.

“Maleficient” is her second great triumph in blockbuster movies after “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”. She herself said that making the movie was a passionate process that left her feeling like she had just undergone a psychotherapeutic session.
For Angelina, acting is her therapy and she also believes in humanitarian efforts which keep her feeling good about herself since virtue is its own reward.
