Angelina Jolie to adopt from Chad

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Another one??? According to the New York Post, Angelina is about to adopt yet another child, this time from Chad. And this is just weeks after her latest adoption from Vietnam. I guess this is part of her “balancing out the races” philosophy:

“Angelina and Brad want to make sure Zahara doesn’t feel alienated as the only black face in their family,” a source told London’s News of the World. Jolie herself recently said, “Should you balance the races, so there’s another African person in the house for Zahara, after another Asian person in the house for Mad? We think so.”

Jolie reportedly has already picked out a 1-year-old girl from Oure Cassoni in Chad and has her lawyers working on the adoption paperwork. “She is hoping to have her daughter home by the summer,” a source told the British paper.

I guess she really will need that hands-free multiple child carrier (from Gallery of the Absurd, hat tip to Nina!):

Brangelina and the Temple of Doom

brad pitt angelina jolie pune rickshaw maddoxAs we’ve discussed before on Racialicious, Angelina Jolie has been cast to play Mariane Pearl, the wife of the late murdered journalist Daniel Pearl.

They’re currently shooting the film in Pune, India and the crowds are going crazy:

The couple were chased by photographers, cameramen and reporters, forcing them to turn back after a 20-minute ride that took them past stores in downtown Pune, in western India.[...] Several traffic signals slowed their short rickshaw ride. At every red light, security men traveling in a rickshaw behind jumped out and surrounded the three-wheeler to prevent the media from snapping pictures of Pitt and Jolie.

indiana jones and the temple of doomIs there something familiar about the scene? It was nagging at me but I couldn’t figure it out, until one of the commenters over at Sepia Mutiny made the connection:

Ok, humor me for a second folks. In the picture where they are in the rickshaw don’t Pitt and Jolie look like Harrison Ford and Kate Capshaw in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? Really. The part of Short Round is being played by Maddox.

See here. Re-make!

Bingo! Total 80s flashback! :)
