Long story short, Angelina’s dick is bigger than yours. Hollywood Reporter says:
The National Organization for Women should send Angelina Jolie a nice cheese basket (or vice versa). The world’s most famous actress-humanitarian might not have single-handedly erased gender inequality in the movie industry, but she sure has struck a major blow for actresses. How else to explain her $20 million payout for Sony’s next big summer release, “Salt,” an action project that originally was written to star a man — no less than Tom Cruise? “It’s definitely unusual that a female has become an action star,” “Salt” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says. “But it’s a funny thing. She’s not a female action star; she’s an action star. She’s really the first female to transcend gender. I don’t think it’s occurred before.”…No actress in Hollywood history has been able to chisel out the supremacy Jolie has in a male-dominated genre. Actually, her achievement is bigger than that. Her standard deal, which she received for “Salt” and “Tourist,” is matched by only one or two other actors in the world, with $20 million up front, a hefty first-dollar gross percentage plus other sizable ancillary benefits. She already was getting $15 million for “Smith” and “Wanted.”
Rich, sexy, and doesn’t give not a damn about what you think. If the government decided to exterminate all women and replace them with clones of Angelina Jolie in Wanted, I would wrap myself in an American flag and feed a bald eagle a baby. Just sayin’.
