Quotes from Others

“I mean, I have the most massive girl-crush on Saoirse Ronan ever. We just worked together, and I love her to pieces. And I met Angelina Jolie for the first time the other night at an event, and it was like startling to be so close to [her.] She was like stunning. And not just aesthetically; she just has such a presence. I got really hot and sweaty and stumbled my words, and it was a terrible introduction. I really just wanted to tell her that she’s an inspiration and stuff like that. But I think I just ended up breathing on her and looking weird. Lots of crushes at the moment, I guess. Lots of woman crushes.”
– Margot Robbie in 2018

“Angelina is a very smart, capable woman who I think is just afflicted by the kind of crowds that she attracts. At the time me and Angie would pile into a van in Bombay and we would go into a street corner and shoot a scene and slowly people would realize what was going on and try to crowd in and we’d drive somewhere else. It’s too bad. I think it’s an affliction for someone like that. She’s so smart and good at what she does yet she can’t be like a normal person, I felt bad for her. It’s weird.”
– Dan Futterman in February 2018, A Mighty Heart co-star

“I want to become a sort of Angelina Jolie. Like her, I think fame is nothing in itself, but it can be put to good use.”

“I think that Angelina is a very courageous woman. She’s not a reclusive. She’s out there. She wants to help people, her sisters. She is taking what has happened in her life and leveraging her high-profile celebrity for the greater good. And I applaud her for that. Because if you’re a celebrity and you don’t leverage it for something, some message that’s for the greater good, you’ve wasted it.”
– Fran Drescher

“Literally, she gets every single script that has a female role aged between eighteen and 40—every script. And she just follows her feeling, holds her own counsel. She’s probably the only global megastar that doesn’t even have an agent—she doesn’t even have a publicist.”

– Johnny Depp from Entertainment Weekly – November 19 2010

“Oh she’s a great woman and you know what, she’s a very funny broad. Actually, she’s really a great definition of a broad– like an old school broad. She has a great sense of humor, she says it like she sees it and she doesn’t ******** anyone. And she has the energy of 300 people! It’s insane. She’s raising this magnificent, beautiful family and doing all that, going to work and putting her heart into in, and then she is still dealing with these global issues. She is a very impressive human being to say the least.”
– Johnny Depp

“Boy, I certainly would like to think so. I hope so. If she’ll have me again, I’d be more than happy. She’s a good girl. I have a lot of respect for her. In the face of all that she, Brad, and the kids have to deal with, being globally under the microscope every second of the day, she’s grounded. She’s as cool, normal and low key as you’d want to meet. She doesn’t take it all that seriously. She is a wonderful mommy, a great mommy, which you’ve gotta take your hat off to as well. And she’s out there trying to do things in the world, to help. She’s impressive. She’s a force.”
– Johnny Depp

A lot of times I forget that I’m an actor and that maybe someone might recognize me from something that I have done. So I went up to her and said, Miss Jolie, I just have to tell you that I am a huge fan of your work and I saw you in Gia, and I started complimenting her work and I got her all teary! Can you believe that? I made Angelina Jolie almost cry! But then the best was when she said that she recognized me from Welcome to The Dollhouse and then she got me all teary! Then she kissed me on the cheek and I almost fainted. The other person that I met that was the coolest was Lauren Bacall. Wow, that was unreal!

– Janet Jackson, pop artist

“This was never like, let me pretend that I’m straight on TV. And then let me all of a sudden declare I’m gay, and change. Most people who watched my show knew that I was gay. I don’t know how they couldn’t. I mean, I know I said I have a crush on Tom Cruise. You know why? I do. Does that mean that I want to marry him? No. Angelina Jolie was on my show.

It’s good to meet somebody who’s such a big superstar who’s just so cool, and really there for a cause.”
