Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appear to have an open relationship. In a new interview, Jolie admits that fidelity isn't a priority in her relationship with Pitt and that the two never chain each other down. One of Hollywood's biggest power couples, Brangelina might be on to something.
"I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It’s worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards. Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other," Jolie said.
This quote comes after a few weeks of cheating rumors that have surrounded Pitt and his brunette co-star, Lara Marsden. While this may be Jolie's way of accepting Pitt's extramarital affairs, it could also support the rumors that she has "lesbian flings." Most people think that there is something very different about Angelina and Brad's relationship, and it seems as though Jolie may have just divulged.

Ford subsequently garnered three more Best Actor Golden Globe nominations: for his performances in Weir's 1986 drama "The Mosquito Coast"; the 1994 blockbuster "The Fugitive," for director Andrew Davis; and Sydney Pollack's 1996 remake of "Sabrina." Ford's many other film credits include Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation" and "Apocalypse Now"; Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic "Blade Runner"; Mike Nichols' "Working Girl"; the title role in the Nichols-directed drama "Regarding Henry"; Alan J. Pakula's "Presumed Innocent"; Philip Noyce's "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger"; Wolfgang Petersen's "Air Force One"; Robert Zemeckis's "What Lies Beneath"; Kathryn Bigelow's "K-19: The Widowmaker," which he also executive produced; Roger Michell's "Morning Glory"; and Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens."

Starz Teams Up With NBA All-Star LeBron James, Business Partners Maverick Carter, Paul Wachter And Legendary TV Producer Tom Werner To Develop Half-Hour Scripted Comedy Series, "Survivor's Remorse"
|Posted by Jackscullin on September 18, 2013 at 4:15 PM||comments (0)|
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Starz Chief Executive Officer, Chris Albrecht, announced today that Starz will work with LeBron James, Tom Werner, Mike O'Malley, Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter to develop a half-hour scripted comedy series, "Survivor's Remorse," for STARZ. The series will explore the complexity, comedy and drama of an experience that everyone reads about, but few understand – what truly happens when you make it out. Through a combination of God-given talent and north Philly grit, Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn have achieved fame and fortune that neither could have imagined growing up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. But success comes with its own challenges, and the cousins and confidantes wrestle with the rewards of money, stardom, love, and occasionally, the guilt of having "made it."
"We are incredibly excited at Starz to work with such a deep bench of talented storytellers to develop 'Survivor's Remorse,'" said Albrecht. "Everyone involved brings something unique to the table – from Tom Werner's legendary television success to LeBron's extraordinary life experiences and point of view. We hope that 'Survivor's Remorse' will bring the humor, pain and complexity of these characters to life in a way that is honest and compelling for audiences worldwide."
James and Carter have been in business with Werner since 2011, when they partnered with Fenway Sports Group (FSG), one of the largest sports, media and entertainment companies in the world. Werner is Chairman of FSG, which owns soccer's Liverpool Football Club and baseball's Boston Red Sox. Wachter, a prominent Los Angeles-based financial advisor, has been business partners with James and Carter since 2004 and with Werner since he sold the Padres as Werner's investment advisor in 1995. Mike O'Malley will serve as executive producer and writer (consulting producer and writer on "Shameless," and actor in "Glee," "Justified," "My name is Earl").
"I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now," said James. "I love 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'Magic City,' 'Scandal' and '24.' When my business partners Tom Werner and Maverick Carter brought up the idea of creating a television series that would capture the story of what happens when you make it out, I jumped at the chance. For Maverick and I even to be where we are right now, given where we came from, is kind of hard to believe. I felt like it was a story that needed to be told, and nobody can craft a story like Tom Werner. He has an incredible vision for television and I'm really excited to partner with him and the rest of our team."
LeBron James will serve as an Executive Producer along with Tom Werner, currently Chairman of the Boston Red Sox. James, a nine-time NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold medalist, recently led the Miami Heat to a second straight NBA Championship win and captured his fourth straight MVP trophy. As founder of The Carsey-Werner Company, Werner produced some of the most important television shows of the past generation, including "The Cosby Show," "Roseanne,"
"3rd Rock from the Sun," and "That '70s Show." Werner is also co-founder of Good Humor TV and the cable channel Oxygen. Emmy® nominated actor Mike O'Malley, who served as a consulting producer on "Shameless" and has starred in series including "Glee" and "Justified," will also serve as Executive Producer, along with Maverick Carter, James' longtime friend and manager, and Paul Wachter.
