Even Angelina Jolie can’t do it all. Between acting, directing, raising six kids and saving the world, she’s got a lot on her plate. As she gets older, the 36-year-old knows something has to give. What she’s likely to give up first is an easy call . The Oscar winner, whose directorial debut is in post-production, and who will be starring in a remake of the Elizabeth Taylor film Cleopatra , said: “As Brad and I get older we’re going to do fewer films. I’ve been working a long time, he’s been working a long time. We’ve had a nice run and don’t want to be doing this indefinitely, our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do.” “You’re drawn to certain roles because they question something about life, about love, about freedom. You ask these questions as you grow up: am I strong enough, am I sane enough? Do I understand love, do I understand myself?” Jolie continues, “I’m older and I know who I am … and I’m less interested in the character helping me answer something … than in being able to answer it for myself, as a woman, as an adult, with my family.” For Angelina, answers that she once sought to find from her characters can now be found as she travels the world, taking her adopted children to their home countries and doing massive amounts of charity work. Of course, Jolie has said that same exact thing a number of times previously; she first mentioned it in 2006, and then again in 2008. Think she’ll really pull herself away?

The judge declared a mistrial today in Roger Clemens’ perjury case after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that was previously ruled inadmissible. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said the prosecutors had made a grave error and that the baseball legend could no longer be assured a fair trial. Walton scheduled a September 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial, but the jurors were dismissed and the case is off – for now. Roger Clemens was indicted for perjury for allegedly lying to Congress during a 2008 investigation into performance-enhancing drug use in the sport. He is not being charged with using drugs, per se, but for knowingly false testimony he allegedly gave involving his use of the substances years ago. This morning, in the second day of testimony, the judge interrupted prosecutors’ playing of a video from his 2008 testimony before Congress. The jury was removed from the room. When they returned, they were dismissed, and the judge issued the following explanation of why: “There are rules that we play by and those rules are designed to make sure both sides receive a fair trial. If this man got convicted, he would go to jail.” Because prosecutors broke his rules, “the ability with Mr. Clemens with this jury to get a fair trial with this jury would be very difficult if not impossible.” Prosecutors suggested the problem could have been fixed with an instruction to the jury to disregard the evidence, but Walton seemed skeptical. He said he could never know what impact the evidence would have during the jury’s deliberations “when we’ve got a man’s liberty at interest.” “I don’t see how we un-ring the bell,” he said. Defense attorney Rusty Hardin patted an unsmiling Clemens on the back as the judge announced his decision. Clemens did not speak to reporters. Clemens and his lawyers remain under a court gag order and they declined to comment as they left. “I’m not going to say anything,” he said.
Us Weekly tried to make the case with a splashy new cover story, but reports of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting married this summer are false. Sources close to the couple say they won’t be walking down the aisle any time soon and ” there is no evidence nor any single truth” to Us ‘ story. The two, who adamantly state that gay marriage should be legalized everywhere, say they remain open to one day tying the knot. But not now. Recent remarks by the two helped fuel the never-ending rumors. Pitt told USA Today that the brood is curious: “The kids ask about it … It’s meaning more and more to them. It’s something we’ve got to look at.” “I think it would be hard to say no to the kids,” Angelina added. Construction at Chateau Miraval, their home in the south of France, was rumored to be part of their secret wedding preparations. Not the case. Professionally, Pitt is filming World War Z (Jolie and the kids stayed with him in Malta) and will be busy promoting Moneyball and Cogan’s Trade . Angelina, meanwhile, is gearing up for her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey , set in war-torn regions of the former Yugoslavia.
Brooke Mueller is aghast. You really think she’d walk around the street clutching a crack pipe, as a photo taken this week insinuated?!? Please. Charlie Sheen’s troubled ex has a reasonable explanation for that: it was just a little pot. According to friends who spoke to TMZ, Mueller admits she smokes legal, medicinal marijuana sometimes due to anxiety. She doesn’t ever smoke crack, reportedly, though she does dabble in the occasional cocaine. But a binge only lasts for 12 hours and then she pops into rehab. There. All better! As you might expect, Brooke doesn’t believe there’s any reason for the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services to get involved or test her for drugs . And that organization apparently agrees: no one from it has questioned her or Sheen in over six months.
