Random Fuzzy

- Glenn Beck recounted on his show (below) an amusingly awkward encounter yesterday, June 29, with Angelina that involved a painting in the Netflix studios on Sunset Blvd.

- Brad caught a performance by Nick Cave at the Greek Theater last night, June 29, with Catherine Keener.  Cave is one of the composers of War Machine

- The entire family left L.A on June 17.  The family was photographed in the main LAX terminal while Brad was seen, but not photographed and he may have gone through the newly opened VIP terminal. 

- There were no airport sightings of any of them arriving back in L.A.  They flew out commercial but flew back private and successfully avoided being seen or detected when they arrived. 

- There were no public sightings of the rest of the family during their trip -- no shopping trips, restaurant outings. visits to museums, trips to the park, hanging out with friends   --  things they frequently and routinely do at home and abroad.

- Since she departed LAX on June 17 there have been no arrival or departure sightings, not even on the airport tarmac of cities she was known to have visited.

- As noted previously, it takes careful planning and official assistance to pull all this off.

- It is obviously very important to them to literally fly under the radar and avoid being seen or having their movements followed.

In summary we know:

- They were all seen departing L.A June 17

- Brad was photographed after he landed in Nice on June 18

- Angelina had official appearances in Nairobi, Kenya on June 20 for PSVI and World Refugee Day

- Brad was photographed in Zurich, Germany and Venice on June 22

- Brad was photographed in Glastonbury on June 23 up to the early morning screening of Okja an June 24

- The photo crew, her hairstylist and the editor of Harpers Bazaar arrived in N/a an ku se on June 23 and started work on June 24

- Brad had 3 new tattoos made by Berlin-based artist Mo Ganji who posted that it was finished 4AM  of June 26

- Angelina paid a courtesy call on the President of Namibia on June 26 with Shiloh and Zahara and Dr. Rudie Van Vuuren of N/a an kuse

- the photo crew left Namibia on the afternoon of June 27

- Brad was photographed in Paris touring art museums with Thomas Houseago on June 27

- Brad posed for a photo at Nice airport June 28

- They are both seen in L.A. on June 29

It looks like they had time for a brief visit to Miraval before they flew from the South of France to L.A. on a private jet.  This in essence retraces their steps of last September.   A long trans Atlantic flight on a private jet with their father should be the culmination of the kids' recovery.

He really shouldn’t be let out in public — or allowed to mingle with celebrities.

Today from Los Angeles, Glenn recounted a rather awkward encounter with actress Angelina Jolie while walking the halls at Netflix, admiring a painting of Frank Underwood from House of Cards.

“We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it,” Co-host Stu Burguiere said after hearing the uncomfortable retelling.

“It’s just bad. It’s so bad,” Glenn said.

Only in Hollywood . . . and only with Glenn Beck.


GLENN: I was at Netflix yesterday, and I’m going in — it’s an absolutely beautiful studio, and it’s the only — I’m trying to remember the old Bronson studios where they used to shoot Gunsmoke and every —

STU: Perfect strangers.

GLENN: Did they used to shoot perfect strangers there?

PAT: That’s a Bronson kind of reference.

STU: Bronson show.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Oh, okay. So anyway —

STU: Wait, people didn’t get that immediately? I can’t believe it.

GLENN: I know. It’s a good reference. It’s like my Chitty Chitty Bang Bang references that people don’t get.

STU: Except it was a great show with Mark Baker.

GLENN: I got it. I got it. So anyway, I go inside, and it’s this beautiful, beautiful amazing brand-new building on the lot, and so I walk in, and I’m going back past security, and I’m going back into some of the offices, and I’m walking down this really long pure white hallway. And at the end is this amazing painting of Frank Underwood. Okay? And he’s sitting — I don’t even know if they’ve used this before. I don’t know if I’ve seen it before. But it’s this beautiful painting of Frank sitting in the Abraham Lincoln chair from the Lincoln memorial. Have you seen that?

STU: I don’t know if you had. It’s the president of “House of Cards,” the Netflix show; right?

GLENN: Yes. So he’s sitting in this chair, and it’s this — I don’t know. Six foot painting, and it’s spectacular. So I’m walking down the hallway with Tyler, who works with me, and we’re walking down the hallway and Tyler has, you know, some artistic sensibilities in him as well. And so we’re getting toward the end of the hallway, and I’ve just been admiring this quietly for most of the hallway, and then I start talking about the painting. And I’m, like, man, that is beautiful, and I’m saying it loud because we’re alone, inning, in the hallway. And I said that is beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic. And as I say fantastic and Tyler says “Yeah; right? I know.” I begin to turn in the hallway, and both of us at the same time, our eyes drift down past the Frank hands and the Frank face because it’s a gigantic painting, and we start to scan down the painting at the same time and there standing right in front of the painting that we hadn’t noticed the whole time is Angelina Jolie.

STU: Like, the real person?

GLENN: The real person.

STU: Not a picture of Angelina Jolie.

GLENN: Actual Angelina Jolie, and so she’s looking at us as we are looking just above her head at the painting, and I’m, like, that’s beautiful, huh? Look at that. [Laughter] Fantastic. And I turn, and I’m, like, “Oh, dear god.” Flump.

STU: Did you get a restraining order yet?

GLENN: Not yet. So I walk into this meeting, and the first thing they said was “Did you meet Angelina?” And I was, like, I didn’t, no. She was in the hall. I didn’t notice. What are you talking about? [Laughter] Beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic.

STU: Did it really fit — like did you think that she thought you were talking about her?

GLENN: I have no idea. I just — I just immediately looked away because my thought when I saw her was “Beautiful. Fantastic. Look at that.” [Laughter]

STU: Oh, no. Oh, no. You really shouldn’t be allowed out.

GLENN: I should not. You should not let me talk to celebrities or see celebrities or talk to anybody. I just —

STU: We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it.

GLENN: It’s just bad. It’s so bad. Beautiful.  And, you know, the bad thing is if she knew I was talking about the painting, she would be, like, what the hell’s wrong with me? I’m chop liver? You’re looking at the painting?

STU: Looking at a painting of Kevin Spacey?

GLENN: It was weird because the way it was in the hallway and the stark white and the black and white painting of this. It was really stunning. But she was — it was a very dark painting, and she’s wearing all black, and so it looked like, you know, when you first saw her, I mean — I don’t know how we missed her head. It was, like, her head was, like, right in the center of his, you know, chest or something just floating there. I don’t know how we didn’t see it. You’re seeing up on the feed today. That’s not the picture, the one that’s being shown on the — that’s not the picture. The one that’s on The Blaze TV.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: It’s of him sitting in the chair from Abraham Lincoln, the one in the Lincoln memorial.

STU: That sounds pretty amazing.

GLENN: Yeah, it was — it was not as nice as Angelina Jolie.

STU: No. Not even a bit close, I would think.

GLENN: No. She looked beautiful.

STU: I’m sure she did. I know what she does.

GLENN: Yeah. You know how some people — you know how some people look different than they do on TV?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Like, me, I look much, much fatter.

STU: On which one? TV or not TV?

GLENN: It’s just the same. But anyway, she looked exactly like she does in the movies. She was beautiful, so I just thought I would throw that in.

STU: That’s a good thing to be able to pull off. If you can pull that off, that’s pretty impressive.

GLENN: Yeah, I did think about turning around and going so I hear you’re single now, huh?

STU: No, you didn’t. Please don’t tell me that.


Thanks Pride&Joy


Hotelier inspired by Angelina Jolie to expand in Namibia

Zannier Hotels is to open two hotels in Namibia next year and is seeking a third project in the country.

The company already owns Le Chalet by Zannier in Megeve, France, which was the first hotel created by Arnaud Zannier and Phum Baitang, which opened in Siem Reap, Cambodia in 2015.

It was following a suggestion made by actress Angelina Jolie, who stayed at Phum Baitang for several months when making a Netflix film in the country, that Zannier sought out the projects in Namibia.

They include a lodge on a huge 9,000 hectare reserve outside the capital Windhoek focused on elephant and rhino conservation and a 6,000 hectare project in the south, near the famous sand dunes of Sossusvlei, where Zannier plans to open a tented lodge. The first lodge will open in June 2018, followed by the second one in September.

“Namibia was an incredible discovery for me – I was so impressed by the nature and the fact that you are completely cut off from the outside world," Zannier said.

But before the Namibia projects, Zannier Hotels is opening 1898 The Post in the Belgian city of Ghent, where Zannier and his company are based.

  4. Angelina Jolie Talks To Red
    'Know yourself, be kind to others and you will weather the storms.'
    For the first time, Angelina Jolie has become the face of a fragrance. She talks to Red, exclusively, about motherhood, nostalgia and handling the hard times.

    I last interviewed Angelina Jolie a few months before her wedding to Brad Pitt. She sat poised and elegant, her back arrow-straight, her eyes glistening with pride as she talked about her children and her career: feature films she was starring in, scripts she was going to direct and her long-standing humanitarian work in Africa and beyond. Those famous lips were pouted ever-so-slightly, and erupted into a smile when I asked about her then-fiancé, someone she described as her “best friend” and a “great man”.

    Three years on, and I’m in touch with Jolie once again, fresh from the announcement that she is the face of Guerlain’s new fragrance, Mon Guerlain – her first beauty endorsement, and one she soon tells me is incredibly personal to her. And what a three years it has been. In addition to the fragrance campaign, Jolie has directed three critically-lauded films – By The Sea, Unbroken and First They Killed My Father – while her passion for that other great role, being mother to Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, is unwavering. “It’s the most exciting thing to watch them become the unique individuals that they are,” she tells me, from her home in LA.

    The fact that Guerlain is a French brand was one of the reasons Jolie agreed to partner up. She’s spent a lot of time in the country, and filmed herself and Pitt there in By The Sea. But Guerlain is particularly personal to her because it was the brand of perfume worn by her beloved mother, Marcheline Bertrand (she favoured Shalimar), and is synonymous with Jolie’s own childhood. “Guerlain spoke to my mother, as it does to me, of beauty, history and quality,” says Jolie. “I don’t like perfumes that are too strong or sweet; I like a fragrance that is earthy and sensual and can be worn at any time.” Mon Guerlain, which, with its notes of lavender, vanilla and sandalwood, is a nod to one of the most offbeat but beautiful Guerlain scents of all time, Jicky, ticks these boxes, but it’s the integrity of the brand that’s important, too. “As I talked to Guerlain about their ethos and the artistry they devote to the making of the perfume, and the way they work in communities, sourcing their ingredients, the pieces came together and I felt we were a match.” Far from being just another actress fronting just another campaign, Jolie researched their commitment to sustainable development before agreeing to work with them. “I was impressed by their strong sense of responsibility towards the communities they work with and towards the environment,” she adds.

    Jolie has recently turned 42, so I ask her what life advice she wished she’d had when entering adulthood that she would most like to pass onto her children. “That if your intentions are pure, the battle is half won,” she replies. “That things will change shape, and there will be highs and lows. But know yourself and be kind to others, and you will be able to weather the storms.” It’s a typically insightful and philosophical soundbite from Jolie (I’ve yet to watch an interview where her answers aren’t considered and articulate). But it’s hard not to think just how much this perspective means to her now, more than ever. Because while her career has flourished in the three years since our last meeting, her marriage… less so. Last September, Jolie and Pitt announced their plans to divorce...

    The full interview appears in the August issue of Red, on sale Tuesday 4th July

    Eco-friendly design usually costs extra. To change that, Brad Pitt's favorite architects are creating green housing for the poor.
