Angelina Jolie, Twins Leave The Hospital

PARIS — - Angelina Jolie has left the building. Oh, and so have the twins.

Before dawn Saturday, the Hollywood superstar and her newborn twins left the French Riviera hospital where she gave birth a week ago, the hospital said in a statement.

"The mother and her babies are doing very well," reported the Fondation Lenval hospital in the southern Mediterranean city of Nice.

Jolie slipped out at 4 a.m. Saturday with the twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt, deftly evading most of the paparazzi who have followed the family for months in southern France, ever since Jolie arrived for the Cannes film festival in May. It was not clear if the twins' father, actor Brad Pitt, was with them.

Jolie, 33, checked into the hospital on July 2 and delivered the babies by Caesarean section ten days later. Knox Leon weighed 5.03 pounds and Vivienne Marcheline 5 pounds.

Jolie's obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, told reporters after the birth that the 44-year-old Pitt was at Jolie's side during the delivery, which he said had been pushed up from its originally planned date "for medical reasons" so the babies could be born "in the best conditions."

Did I say that?

Angelina Jolie Launching Perfume Line?

Stunning Angelina Jolie is reportedly in talks to launch her own line of signature scents. The Oscar winner is working out the details with French fragrance house Coty (which recently helped create Sarah Jessica Parker’s perfume) to design her own line of products.

"Angelina wants a very strong input," a source tells Britain's The Mail. "She wouldn’t want a fragrance that she didn’t feel encapsulates her."

Having a perfume line has proven to be a lucrative endeavor for many celebrities. Other stars who have their own super-successful perfumes include Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani.

Given Jolie's unrivaled star power today, it's likely her fragrances will rake in tons of cash. The venture would enable Jolie to continue supporting her many charitable causes. Jolie, 33, is a U.N. Ambassador who reportedly donates one-third of her income to charity.

Angie, a mom of four, is expecting fraternal twins with partner Brad Pitt, 44, this summer. In addition to the blockbuster animated film, Kung Fu Panda (which is in theaters now), Jolie has a movie coming out June 27: the action thriller, Wanted, in which she portrays an assassin.

For those who criticize her decision to play a vigilante, Jolie says, "The idea behind Wanted is not that she's a bad-ass assassin that just likes to kill people. It's that, if you ran into Hitler before he did everything, and you knew, should you shoot him? I would. These assassins are getting lists: They find out who is going to slaughter other people ahead of time and they remove them."

Jolie—who says she wouldn't hesitate to shoot anyone who tries to harm her kids—adds: "It is a confusing thing, certainly for rights activists. Don't read too much into it. I am holding a gun, but there are so many people that have done so many horrible things." 

Jolie And Pitt To Adopt Chinese Orphan?

Angelina Jolie is considering adopting another child, less than two weeks after checking into a hospital to prepare for the birth of her twins, according to reports.

Heavily pregnant Jolie checked herself into a Nice, France hospital on 29 June (08) - where she will remain until her babies, with partner Brad Pitt, are born.

The expected additions will be the fifth and sixth children for the couple - who are allegedly on a mission to add a seventh member to their family.

According to reports, the pair was so moved by the plights of children orphaned by May's (08) devastating earthquake in China, they want to adopt a child from the region.

A source tells the National Enquirer, "Even as the birth of their twins impended, Angie and Brad were already talking adoption again. She's devastated over the earthquake that occurred in China, she has been in constant touch with relief workers as part of her U.N. involvement - and even got her hands on photos of a few orphaned kids.

"She's made overtures to offer a home to one, or even two China earthquake orphans, if they're siblings".

Jolie and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, six, Zahara, two, and Pax, four, as well as their biological two-year-old Shiloh.

If the Earth started to feel a little more crowded this weekend, that's because Angelina Jolie birthed her twins, a boy Knox Leon and a girl Vivienne Marcheline, late Saturday night. Compared to their siblings, these two got off easy in the name department. Angelina's obstetrician Dr. Michael Sussmann updated the press on everyone's condition - then handed out lollipops; he's that good. The AP reports:

"He was very happy. ... The emotion was very strong for him," Sussmann told reporters on the hospital steps. "I felt the emotion of both the mother and the father. Angelina Jolie was speaking, was laughing with her husband. They were happy."
"The mother, the babies, the father are doing marvelously well," he said.

While this is great news for Angelina and Brad, this is terrible news for me. I lost the office pool. Here's the names I picked. I dunno how I didn't win:

BOYS:
Captain America.
Jon Voight Just Kidding I Still Hate you Daddy.
Maddox. (He won't mind.)

GIRLS:
Licorice Petunia.
~. (Pronounced "Squiggly line thingy.")
Melissa.

Congrats to the Pitt-Jolie clan! Please don't assimilate me.

The Jolie-Pitts Welcome a Son & Daughter

Brad Pitt was at Angelina Jolie's side as she gave birth to a son and daughter Saturday at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France, PEOPLE has confirmed.

"The babies are doing well. The operation went just perfectly," Dr. Michel Sussmann told PEOPLE Sunday. "Angelina is in very good spirits. Brad Pitt was at her side. He was there and all was well."
Sussmann confirmed the Nice-Matin newspaper report that Jolie gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Cesarean section on Saturday night. Knox weighed 5.03 lbs, and Vivienne 5 lbs.
The twins are the fifth and sixth children for Jolie, 33, and partner Brad Pitt, 44, who are already parents to Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2.
"The mother and father are very, very happy," Sussmann told PEOPLE.
The doctor told the Associated Press that the Cesarean was moved forward "for medical reasons" so that the babies could be born "in the best conditions." He also said Jolie is expected to stay in the hospital for a few days.
On July 1, Jolie checked in to the Fondation Lenval hospital to await the births. The family has been living in the south of France since this spring.Jolie recently told Entertainment Weekly that she was surprised – but not daunted – when she learned she was having twins. "It did shock us, and we jumped to six [children] quickly," she said. "But we like a challenge."

She's Popping on Tuesday?!


The wait is almost over.

According to a new report, Angelina Jolie will give birth to the Wonder Twins by C-section on Tuesday.
A source reports, “She can't wait to give birth because she can't stand the hospital food, and she is fed up to be in this hospital room. If she could be induced earlier she would love it, but the medical team think it's medically better to wait until next Tuesday.”

Exciting!

Kung Fu Panda

Cast: Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie and Lucy Liu

Director: Mark Osborne, John Stevenson

It's hard not to like Kung Fu Panda even though there have been many smarter animation films recently. It tells the story of an overweight panda Po (voiced by Jack Black) who works for his father in a noodle shop, but secretly yearns to be a kung fu fighter.

Which is why he climbs up thousands of steps to the ancient temple where the Dragon Warrior will be chosen to face off against the dreaded villain Tai Lung who is believed to be planning his escape from an Alcatraz-like prison.

Dustin Hoffman lends his voice to Kung fu guru Master Shifu who lines up five of his best students before the temple master for his selection. Shifu's "Furious Five" comprise Monkey, Tigress, Mantis, Viper and Crane, all highly skilled fighters who could crack open your skull with one deadly move. Yet, as luck would have it, the temple master picks none of them, but roly-poly Po instead to be the Dragon Warrior.


Naturally what ensues are a series of laugh-out-loud moments as this hopeless panda with a total lack of skill is trained in the art of kung fu.

The film is an easy watch, enjoyable even, despite its formulaic 'against-all-odds' theme.

The real fun in Kung Fu Panda comes from the action scenes which are packed with energy and full of crazy little moments that'll have you in splits throughout. The all-star-cast voice talent also includes Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie and Lucy Liu, but it's Dustin Hoffman doing his best gruff vocals as Master Shifu who is the finest talent on board.

It's also impossible not to lose your heart to Po, the klutzy, couch-potato panda who gets his attitude from Jack Black's amazing voice intonations. Kung Fu Panda is a visually stunning film whose animation is part-computer generated part-hand drawn, it's the kind of photorealistic 3-D animation that makes characters and locations come alive because they're so intricately detailed and fantastically executed.

Jane Seymour clearly is in the dark about Angelina Jolie being full term in her pregnancy, because she wants the poor girl to put on weight.

She tells Ok! Magazine, "My advice to her is to put some weight on. I think she needs to keep putting on weight so she can feed those babies. I don't think she should think twice. She hasn't put on enough weight."

Jane bases this advice on her own experience giving birth to twins. "I nearly died having the twins. I had preclampsia, which is toxemia, and I had to have an emergency C-section and I almost lost my life. So my advice to her is to listen to your doctors and if they say bed rest and they say blood pressure cuff every hour and they say whatever medication they say, you should take it very seriously."

It's nice that Jane is concerned, but she doesn't need to scare Angie! Not everyone has complications during their pregnancies, and if Angelina was in trouble, we're sure her extensive team of doctors is experienced enough to deal with it!
