Holy moly! Nonstop Jolie!
Blog Guy, you often write about Angelina Jolie. Has her new movie had its premiere yet?
Well, I can only speak for Berlin, Paris, London, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo and Hollywood. I know it has premiered there because we moved photos of her at each place.
SEVEN cities? That’s very generous of Reuters, free publicity-wise. How does that compare with your coverage of the endless Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz odyssey recently to promote their new move?
So far, Jolie is one city ahead of them.
And why is it newsworthy every time she shows up in a different city to plug the same movie?
You don’t understand journalism. We never know if she might announce a new policy on global warming or the economy or the New York City mosque.
I see. Still, she IS just an actress. Any other reason you would cover every stop?
Sure, to see what she eats while she’s watching her movie. Sometimes it’s Junior Mints, or Cheese Nachos, or wienerschnitzel and hasenpfeffer and schnapps…
Wienerschnitzel and hasenpfeffer and schnapps in a movie theater?
In Berlin. Don’t even ask….
