America’s Got Talent judge Heidi Klum is sure doing “sweet” things to give back! Last week, she partnered with Operation Shower and Babies “R” Us for a “Sweet Surprises” grand-scale baby shower for 125 military moms-to-be.
Actress Angelina Jolie gets a visit from her son Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, 3 1/2, on the set of The Changeling in Pasadena, CA.
Angelina Jolie told Good Morning America that she is a terrible cook, and won’t be cooking Thanksgiving dinner herself: “I’m not much of a cook, so we’ll see what happens, I try. We all chip in. But I don’t think anyone in my family wants me to handle Thanksgiving dinner.”
They do celebrate all cultures in the Jolie-Pitt household: “We celebrate Moon Festival for my boys, who are from Asia, and Kwanzaa and things like that. We certainly try to celebrate as many of those as we can, and celebrate all cultures.”
Jennifer Garner is just so darn likeable! Don’t you feel like she could be one of your best friends? She seems so grounded and normal. It wouldn’t be far fetched to run into her at the park, or at a mommy & me class.
Because she stands out as a class act, she has been chosen as one of Glamour’s Women of the Year.
GLAMOUR: Your press is impeccable. Your fans adore you. Do you have a dark side, or are you a goody-goody? JENNIFER GARNER: You totally called me out. I am a bit of a goody-goody. Not that there aren’t times when I think, I was kind of an a****** today. I work in a world in which people are really catered to; someone will come up to me and say, “Is it OK if this person’s makeup is done before yours for the premiere?” Right now Ben’s in Africa studying malaria and visiting slums with a lack of potable water and maternity wards where many women have HIV. So would I really put my energy into worrying that I’m second to get my makeup done? When you think about the bigger picture, it’s hard to not have some perspective
GLAMOUR: Who are some other women you admire? JG: My younger sister is my hero: She’s a mom and an accountant for the state of West Virginia. She’s able to juggle a job, kids, volunteer work and church, and she still manages to cook dinner every night without feeling bogged down. There are lots of people out there who are literally heroic, but what she does counts too.
Jennifer Garner’s former Alias costar Victor Garber dished out some inside information about Jen’s daughter Violet, 23 months to Usmagazine.com:
"Violet is the most verbal child. She’s not even 2, and her vocabulary is daunting, she can talk about animals, giraffes, and she mentions where she’s been."
"Honestly, that child is so inquisitive and so full of life — it’s all Jennifer and Ben!" Garber said. "I have to say, he’s an amazing dad and together, she’s a very fortunate little girl to be in that family!"
Said Garber: "I think she’s become more comfortable in her life, who she is and what her priorities are."
Not only is she smart, but she can sing too-"When You Wish Upon Star," is her favorite right now.
Aww…she seems like she would be very verbal, she’s always very animated and lit up. Love her!
