Jolie-Pitt Twins!

Monday, August 04, 2008

The Twins are here! And for the first time we get to see them! As much as we probably hate to admit it, we all secretly adore the wonderfully fabulous Jolie-Pitt family and their humanitarian/celebrity status. After 3 attempts to hunt down the nearly sold out People magazine I finally grabbed the19 page photo spread dedicated to the twins and family. People reportedly spent $14 million on the pics which I’m sure will be used for one of the many Jolie-Pitt charities. Are the 3 week old twins Vivienne and Knox adorable…of course, with those parents how could they not be!
What do you think, would you sell your baby pictures?

I had read in an article that ALL the money received for the photo opp is going to charity. They are definitely ones to be looked up to. They are amazing as individuals and as a family.

Personally I would not sell photos of my kids. But in a way I don't fault them for selling them. Their photos will be taken eventually and the money will be going to a charity. Even with the pics going to the highest bitter you know the money from it will go to do a lot of good for people.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sell their baby pictures for a DONATION TO CHARITY -- They never see any of that money! That was the requirement with Shiloh's pictures, too. They said the publication who donates the greatest amount... and People pulled out all the stops; twice. Bravo, People. And the babies are sooo tiny *sqees* ...

I would sell the pictures! If I was that famous, the paparazzi is going to eventually get ahold of the pictures sooner or later! It is nice that Joli and Pitt are donating the money to a great cause! Vivienne and Knox are millionares allready, 14 million dollars for pictures is insane!

While Angelina and Brad do have a great thing going (i.e. donations to charity and "greener" outlook on high society) $19 million is still a rediculous sum for People to be spending for photographs. I think if they were my children, I would want to hold out longer so the twins could have at least a few weeks of their lives without being in the spotlight.

I think the twins are adorable. Although I wouldn't sell my baby pics, I don't blame them for doing it. I think if they didn't the nutsos would be out stalking their home for the pics. So it's probably safer if they can control the environment. Hopefully now that the world has seen them, they will give them all some peace... for a short while at least.

Baby pictures are not meant to be sold, they are something to be cherished. but, if they are using that money for charity, I say go for it. Eventually pictures of the babies would have gotten out and who knows what the people who took the first picture would use the money on?

If I were in the same position as Brad & Angelina (stardom & money) I would sell the pictures of my newborns to the highest bidder as well, but only because the Jolie-Pitt family is donating the $14 million they receive to charity. The paparazzi are going to ambush them to get pictures anyway, so why not choose who you would like to take your family photos? Iím sure the paparazzi are still going to try to get pictures but at least now the money hungry photographers cannot get rich off of selling pictures they took without permission.

I would not sell my baby pictures but I would share them with friends and family. When you become a celebrity part of what you lose/sacrifice is privacy. People want to know about your life. They want to know details because they think of you as a "friend". I think that selling the pics and donating the funds the charities is a commendable trait. I wish more celebrities took that approach.

I have not seen the pictures myself but on usual circumstances i would say no. stars children for the most part would have a hard life. but with something this big in the press, there WILL be paparazzi still, and disrupting their daily lives. i think that if it is for a good cause no harm, getting money for something that is inevitable.

They have plenty to give themselves.I hope they continue their charity and i hope they teach others a lesson in humility.

Well, I mean soon or later the baby are going to be out there in the world. It not like they never ever going to face anyone. I wouldn't sell them nor won't let them take a pictures. If it happen to be taken then it would be fine with me. But on the other hand I don't want people to said that I sell my baby pictures for 14 mil. So I guess if anyone lucky to see the baby then it ok.

I think it obsurd that they are worth the money they are. People are way too obsessed with celebritys. But I have kive the couple Kudo's as the entire proceeds of the sale is set to go to charity. As much as everyone wants to hate on them. They are a great example of people who are fortunate really helping those who are not out. Just giving what you can is one of the best mood enhancers and self esteem boosters out there.

I would try to protect my child from the media until they are ready to make that choice for themselves. I do commend Brangelina on giving that money to charity. Can you imagine being able to just give awway $14 million dollars and not even blink?

Of course you all would!! Can you say college funding? With the better Universities at $34,000 or better right now, not including housing or books and materials much less any food allowance, for each year they attend. Add that up for the year 2028 tacking on all that that length of time would inflate in American dollars and what would you be looking at for a 6 year each Masterís curriculum. Now I know that we are not Brad and Angelina to whom this is not a hardship, but it is you and I. Be real.

Yes the twins are adorable but aren't all babies adorable? I'm not a big fan of either of them, if they are such a homesome family then get married already. They keep having kids & adoting kids but aren't married so in the eyes of the church they are sinners. Yes they do alot of charity work which I give them credit for not all famous people do that, they like to give back. Good luck to all of them.

You know, just because you sell your pictures to the highest bidder doesn't mean you don't get to keep them yourself, too, so why not? Just think, the twins will have pictures of themselves as newborns for the rest of their lives! :) All they have to do is search People's database for this cover and there's the family picture!

The only reason that selling pictures of your kids should ever be acceptable is if they are giving that money to an organization that really needs the help. It's great that they are making such a difference. They really are 2 great people, God bless them and their family.

I think that--when you have a perspective that life isn't about you but about what you can do to make a difference on this planet--EVERYTHING takes on a different value and meaning. It's obvious they adore their children and would never do anything to compromise their well-being, so to be able to sell a few photos in order to profoundly and positively impact the lives of thousands would probably seem to be a "no-brainer" to them. I applaud them for their generosity on behalf of the world's needy.

People come one now, I keep reading no I will not sell my babies pics but you sure will if someone said they would pay you 14 million dollars and to be honest I don't think you would donate it all to charity like they did. It is easier to claim "No, I would Not" when you never have been presented the opportuity but keeping it real yes you would and chances are you would keep the money too you know why? Because we are not the Jolie-Pitts we are just regular normal people that don't get offered these types of things and struggle with this crazy economy so if you are not brave enough to say it I will "YES I would sell the pic's",the paparazzi is only going to get their hands on the pics anyway and sell them to make tabloid headlines, being in the Jolie-Pitt shoes they much rather spend it on a good cause and if my children's pic's can help thousands of other children around the world well where is the dotted line I would sign and sell and be greatful that I can contribute to the world in that way!

With all of the hype about the babies, it was better for them to sell the pictures and get them out there than to have all kinds of people doing all kinds of crazy things to get a picture of those kids. We know what lengths some will go to. They especially did the right thing since the money was used, not for their own personal expenses, but to fund charity work. I cannot be mad at that.

They could be off doing whatever they chose, and yet you constantly see them doing one humanitarian project after another! I hardly had time to do anything extra with 3 kids! And they still do most all of the "dirty work" involved in being parents! I hope they can manage to stay together while living in a bubble!

Well of course. Look at all the publicity it get them(as if they need it). One thing though, Last night I saw Midnight Cowboy with Angelina father in it. I was struck by how much Shilo looks like him. Almost a perfect take. And they don't even speak,or so she says. Look at the right side of the mag cover and then go rent the movie. It is a great movie but my heart was moved as I realized how much the little girl look like her grandad. Keep Smiling!!
