Actress Angelina Jolie was joined by five of her six children at the West Coast Premiere of Marvel’s Eternals in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theater on Monday.

Angelina stars as Athena in Eternals, about a race of aliens who lived on Earth in secret for thousands of years, who emerge to save humans from an invasion of the Deviants.

Fans were shocked to see Angelina’s 15-year-old daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 2nd from right, wearing a dress on the red carpet.

At a young age, Shiloh was celebrated by the left as proof that transgender children are born that way rather than being influenced by their environment.

Angelina fueled speculation by saying Shiloh “likes to dress like a boy” and “wants to be a boy”. Shiloh briefly referred to herself as “John Jolie-Pitt.”

“She wants to be a boy,” Angelina told Vanity Fair in 2010. “So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”

However, child experts say girls like Shiloh usually grow out of their tomboy phase to embrace their femininity — if they aren’t influenced by adults with ulterior motives.

Shiloh, 2nd from left, is fortunate that she was raised in a loving, 2-parent household. And that her parents didn’t expose her to pedophiles or people with ulterior motives. She was allowed to grow up to be a normal girl without negative outside influences.

Zahara, 16, wore the same shimmery Elie Saab Couture dress that Jolie previously wore to the 2014 Oscar Awards ceremony.

Angelina and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, adopted Zahara in 2005 from Ethiopia.

“I have learned so much from her,” Angelina said in a 2020 interview with Time magazine.

“She is my family, but she is an extraordinary African woman and her connection to her country, her continent, is her own and it’s something I only stand back in awe of.”

Christie Brinkley Reveals If She’d Return To Broadway 10 Years After Playing Roxie Hart In ‘Chicago’

Could we see Christie Brinkley return to the stage once more? The 67-year-old stunner revealed to HL if she would do another Broadway show!

Remember when Christie Brinkley played Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway… and all that jazz? The iconic top model just helped the beloved show celebrate its 25th anniversary on Broadway and it had us all wondering if we would ever see Christie’s name in marquee lights once again! “I doubt it! I mean, I never say never, because you never know. You never know, but it’s a real commitment and a rigorous schedule,” the 67-year-old told HollywoodLife.com in an EXCLUSIVE interview at the Footwear News Achievement Awards on Nov. 30. “When I do something… I would an eight show a week, personally, you know, I don’t come in and do like, easy stuff! I would do it all!”

Recall, Christie marked her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Bob Fosse‘s Chicago in 2010, and was due to reprise the role for a short, four-week engagement in 2019 on the national tour, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. “When Producer Barry Weissler offered me the chance to come back to Chicago The Musical, I thought I was dreaming…but it was actually my dream coming true…AGAIN!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I am honored and overjoyed to reprise the role of Roxie Hart and l am thrilled to get to work with the consummate professionals and artists who bring this iconic Kandor and Ebb masterpiece to life for appreciative audiences 8 times a week. It is a privilege I cherish, and an adventure.”

In talking to HL, Christie couldn’t help but gush over the current star playing Roxie Hart, Ana Villafañe. “Oh she is incredible! She has so much nuance and you can tell, in the moment, she’s always thinking, just like Roxie does in the show. I really enjoyed watching her, she was incredible,” the model recalled. Christie watched Ana in action as Roxie while celebrating the show’s 25th anniversary, during which she also showed she’s still got it (duh!) — kicking up her legs and throwing some jazz hands while lighting up the Empire State Building.

7 Benefits of Orgasm You May Not Know About

7 Benefits of Orgasm You May Not Know About

Some people take orgasms for granted, but researchers say experiencing the big O has more benefits than just enhancing your pleasure.

Women who experience daily orgasms know that the big O comes with health benefits such as sleep aid and pain relief.

“Some people orgasm multiple times, some once, and some none, and that’s all totally normal,” says Rosara Torrisi.

Torrisi, a certified sex therapist and founding director of the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy, tells Health.com that orgasms, particularly masturbating, can reveal what’s normal and abnormal about your sexual health.

“It’s one of the few times people, especially people with vulvas, give themselves permission to touch their genitals,” Torrisi says.

The following are seven health benefits of orgasms.
 

1. Mood enhancer

Orgasms release a flood of feel-good hormones that help you calm down and relieve stress, Kate White, MD, MPH, tells Health.

According to Dr. White, these hormones include:

  • Oxytocin, aka the “love hormone,” which also aids with baby bonding.
  • Dopamine, released by the reward and pleasure centers of the brain.
  • Endorphins, the “natural opiates” that induce a sense of euphoria and reduce stress.
  • Serotonin, which helps regulate mood, appetite, and sleep.
  • Prolactin, that initiates milk production after pregnancy and plays a role in bonding.

 

2. Orgasm helps you connect with your body

Touching yourself helps to reveal body changes that you may not know about, such as yeast infections or lesions on your genitals. “It is really helpful to know what your body feels like, looks like, and even smells like,” Logan Levkoff, PhD, tells Health, “because if you don’t know what the norm is for your body, it’s really difficult to identify when something is off.”

3. Self love teaches you what feels good for you

Most women can reach intense orgasms by themselves — without the help of a partner. Some women are okay with that because they know what feels good for them.

“A lot of people want to have orgasms consistently from penetration, and the truth is that some people can come consistently from that, but most people can’t,” Dr. White tells Health.com.

Dr. Levkoff says self-pleasuring without a partner can be empowering. “Know that you don’t have to rely on someone else to make you a sexual being or to make you feel a certain way.”
 

4. Orgasm strengthens relationships

Beyond having a relationship with yourself, orgasms can bond you tighter with your mate – who you don’t have to depend on for pleasure.
 

5. Orgasm improves sleep

Everyone knows orgasms improves sleep. This is achieved through sex hormones that are released in abundance before, during, and after the big O.

In edition to hormones, the muscles relaxing after the big O is similar to muscle relaxation techniques.

“Some people also build a habit of orgasming before bed, so it’s a part of their sleep routine,” Torrisi explains.
 

6. Orgasm maintains pelvic floor muscles

Frequent orgasms can be as beneficial as cardio exercises. An orgasm is a series of muscle contractions, that maintain or strengthen your pelvic floor, says Levkoff.
 

7. Orgasm relieves pain

Orgasm-induced hormones like oxytocin and endorphins act as natural painkillers, says Dr. White.

“Those pleasurable feelings tend to dull feelings of pain,” Levkoff says, noting this may be why some people find that orgasms relieve menstrual cramps.

Red Table Talk: Sandra Bullock Speaks On Adopting Black Kids “I Have The Same Feelings As A Woman With Brown Skin”

Red Table Talk: Sandra Bullock Speaks On Adopting Black Kids “I Have The Same Feelings As A Woman With Brown Skin”

It’s hard to believe anyone would take issue with Sandra Bullock, but the actress unpacks a lot of the criticisms she’s faced over her interracial adoption on the latest episode of “Red Table Talk.”

Source: Red Table Talk / Facebook Watch

Facebook Watch premiered the latest “Red Table Talk” episode featuring Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock Wednesday, Dec. 1 at noon EST. In the episode, Bullock opened up about her motherhood journey and the moments that have shaped her. The usually private superstar talked about adoption, the traumas of the foster care system, co-parenting, the life-changing experiences that led her to seek a unique style of therapy, and what parenting two Black children has taught her.

Speaking candidly with Jada, Willow and Gam, Bullock opened up about how she was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where her mother is buried, both times when she learned about her babies.

“It makes me really emotional but … I feel beyond a shadow of a doubt that my mother brought me these children,” Sandra said.

Bullock, who is 57, also said she always knew she would become a mother — just not at a young age.

“I don’t know why that was the only route but I’m so glad the universe had me wait. Had me wait even though I was anxious and I was eager — and it went nope, you’re not going to do it the way you think you’re going to do it.”

She revealed that until the point that Louis came into her life, acting had been her everything.

“That was my joy; I was on a wheel,” she says. “But it’s hard when society is breathing down your neck going, you are supposed to do it this way. When Louis came into my life, he was put in my arms at 10 days. I just knew and I said this is my path.”

If you have been a longtime reader of BOSSIP, you likely will recall how we shared regular updates on Bullock’s motherhood experience after she adopted her son Louis in 2010 when he was just 3½ months old. Since then, she’s also become mom to daughter Laila, 8, whom she welcomed via the foster care system before officially adopting her in 2015.

Bullock also addressed criticism of her interracial adoption, admitting that things would be easier if she and her children shared the same skin color.

“To say that I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do. Because then it would be easier on how people approach us,” Bullock explained. “And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin being her babies or a white woman with white babies.”

She went on to muse that it would only take stepping inside her household to see how her experience is nearly identical to any other parent’s, regardless of race. She spoke about constantly trying to do things right and make sure the kids were on time and even mentioned setting aside time to fix her daughter’s edges.

In addition to talking about her motherhood journey, Bullock also spoke about the terrifying experience of having an intruder break into her home while she was there. Fortunately her son was not in her home that night, but ultimately the trespasser took his own life after being confronted by SWAT officers.

Crazy right?
