Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are hoping to star in another movie together. The actors met while filming 2005 action film "Mr & Mrs Smith" and after Pitt finalised his divorce from Jennifer Aniston in August 2005, the pair announced they were dating.
And Jolie insists she enjoyed working with Pitt and is hoping they will be able to repeat their big-screen success with a future project. She says, "We liked filming together and we have got our eyes open if it comes our way." Pitt and Jolie now have three adopted kids - Maddox, six; Pax, three, and Zahara, two - and their biological child, 20-month-old Shiloh.

From Page Six, Mel Gibson is definitely not a friend of Dorothy's -- he's not even a distant acquaintance -- but it appears that he's now trying to gain admittance to the Yellow Brick Road.
The actor, who has repeatedly been accused of homophobia by GLAAD, was seen at the G'Day USA Hollywood Ashes & Aussie Picnic on Sunday toting around the novel Say It Out Loud -- a gay cowboy coming-of-age tale akin to Brokeback Mountain.
Maybe he's thinking of starring in the film version of the movie. Hhhhmmmm....

After a career playing to sold-out stadiums, U2 did what their fans have done for years - stood in line to see U2 perform. That concert was "U2 3D," a film of the band's 2005-06 Vertigo tour, shot at several shows in South America with new 3-D technology.
"I was really hoping we weren't crap after all these years. Luckily we weren't," guitarist The Edge told The Associated Press before the band donned plastic glasses to watch the movie's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday night.
The Edge, joined by singer Bono, drummer Larry Mullen and bassist Adam Clayton, joked about the absurdity of seeing themselves perform after playing together for more than 30 years. "It's kind of horrific," to see himself on stage in 3-D, said Bono.
"It's bad enough on a small screen. Now you get to see the lard arse 40-foot tall." The Edge said the 3-D technology allowed "the songs to shine through," though he was surprised to see the chemistry of the band in the details on screen, and how far apart his bandmates were on stage.
"Are you saying you felt lonely up there?" said Bono, smiling. "No, I felt lonely for Larry," The Edge replied. "He likes being on his own," said Bono. "Didn't you bring him back a bottle of water?" Bono said he loved playing to the enthusiastic audiences of Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro.
"Irish people are essentially Latin people who don't know how to dance," he said. "When people are screaming and roaring and shouting, the humbling thing is to realize it's not really for the band or artist on the stage. It's for their connection with the songs. A song just can own you ...I think that's why concerts are so powerful. If that song is such a part of your life, and you hear it, it's too much almost."
Bono also expressed hope that the film would allow more people to experience their music, especially teenagers and college students who might not be able to afford the pricey tickets to their sold-out shows.
The band is working with longtime producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno on a new album that will merge Lanois' respect for traditional music and Eno's futuristic sound. "Music like the band had formed on Venus, and somewhere between that is our next album," Bono said. "Where they join, where something feels always existing but you never heard it before, that seems to be what the two of them bring out in us."

According to CNN, Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said.
Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment.
The Academy Award nominated actor was 28.
"Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," police spokesman Paul Browne told CNN.
"This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet."
Ledger was found by a housekeeper who had gone to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse in the Soho apartment, Browne said.
He was declared dead at about 3:30 p.m., Browne said.
In 2005, the actor played Ennis Del Mar in "Brokeback Mountain," about two cowboys who had a secret relationship.
The role earned him the Oscar nomination.
