"If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them," (Jolie) said. "I can handle myself. There's a side to me that people know is humanitarian, and there's a side to me that's a mommy. But there's also the side that likes to get down and dirty and run and jump around and fire guns."
If I have ever seen an Angelina Jolie movie I can't remember it. But this news, added to her op-ed a while back calling for the USA to see Operation Iraqi Freedom through to victory for humanitarian reasons, convinced me to put a Jolie movie at the top of my Netflix queue. Judging from the way she handles the hardware in her movies (judging from the dozens of stills I just went through to find a picture for this story) I believe she can protect her kids just fine. As for that Pitt fella, well, I'd trust Angelina with a Sig long before him. Someday I'll tell you about the night I ran into him at Casa Vega on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. I'm sure he's a nice kid. Really. But she's tougher. A lot tougher.
