After They Locked Lips On The Red Carpet, What Happened to Angelina Jolie’s Brother?

After becoming a media sensation in 2000, James Haven, older brother of Angelina Jolie, has seemingly disappeared.

Jolie’s brother become famous when he accompanied her to the 2000 Academy Awards, where she was up for an Oscar.

Jolie won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Girl, Interrupted, but it wasn’t the achievement that made headlines that night. Her affection for her brother actually started to raise questions about their relationship.

While accepting the Oscar, Jolie declared that she was “so in love” with Haven. At another point that night, the brother and sister locked lips, which sparked rumors that the two were actually dating.

It was the first Academy Award nomination for the iconic actress and she was clearly overwhelmed with the whole situation.

“I’m — I’m in shock. And I’m just so in love with my brother right now. He just held me and said he loved me and I know he’s so happy for me,” she said in her acceptance speech.

Both Jolie and Haven have downplayed their notorious kiss over the years.

“First, we’re the best of friends. And it wasn’t some odd open-mouthed kiss. It was disappointing that something so beautiful and pure could be turned into a circus,” Jolie told People magazine in 2004.

That sentiment was echoed by her brother.

“I did not give Angie a French kiss; it was something simple and lovely,” Haven clarified to the Daily Mail in 2007. “She was about to go off to Mexico to finish filming Original Sin (2001) with Antonio Banderas. I congratulated her on the Oscar win and gave her a quick kiss on the lips. It was snapped and became a big thing round the world.”

There was more to the story though.

Brad Pitt In Weekly Therapy To Become Better Father To His Kids

Following a messy breakup, Brad Pitt is going to therapy to be a better father to his kids.

When the father of six and his estranged wife Angelina Jolie announced their separation in September 2016, the relationship between the actor and his children took a turn for the worse.

Despite his multiple child abuse accusations being denounced, the former couple have yet to come to an custody agreement over Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

However, a source close to Pitt told Us Weekly that while he and Jolie only live “just down the street” from each other, “it’s never Brad or Angie that does the hand off. It’s always the bodyguards and nannies.”

Despite the pair’s poor relationship, he doesn’t let it affect his relationship with his children, as he makes sure to spend plenty of quality time with them.

“Brad doesn’t go out much with the kids or leave the house,” the source said. “He prefers to keep things very private and safe.”

“Brad really enjoys time with his kids,” another source told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s a really important time for him. The kids are his life. They mean everything to him.”

So it makes sense he’s taking proactive steps to become the best father to his children.

Angelina Jolie’s Daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Injured In Snowboarding Accident

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitts’ daughter, Shiloh, spent part of her winter vacation in a hospital bed.

The 11-year-old was involved in an accident that led her to have to spend some time receiving medical care.

“Mom was very grateful to the team who helped her,” an insider told PEOPLE.

But it appears that the youngster is on the mend.

Shiloh was spotted wearing a blue sling on her left arm when she was out shopping with her brother Knox on Sunday.

How Jon Voight And Angelina Jolie Fixed Their Famously Troubled Relationship

We know that it’s hard to keep a romantic relationship happy and healthy in Hollywood, but even parents and their kids can drift apart in the spotlight.

Jon Voight and Angelina Jolie are two of the movie industry’s biggest names, but unlike other family acting dynasties, Jolie was never very close with her father. After spending most of her life estranged from Voight, Jolie and her father are finally fixing their relationship, and they both have a very good reason for forgetting the past.

Voight divorced Jolie’s mother, Marcheline, when the actress was just a toddler. Growing up living with her mother, Jolie later remembered that she didn’t feel a strong connection with Voight. “I felt more of my mother’s daughter when I was a child,” she revealed.

While they were often spotted together at awards shows and movie premieres, the rift only grew bigger over the years. The last straw came when Voight insisted his daughter had “serious mental problems” during an episode of Access Hollywood.

Jolie stopped speaking to her father after the insult, and Voight spoke openly about being cut out of his grandchildren’s lives. But Jolie has decided to forgive him in recent years. The stars revealed it took a tragic event to bring them both back together again.

Angelina Jolie Confesses That She Once Hired A Hitman To Kill Her

Years ago, before her highly publicized marriage to Brad Pitt and adoption of multiple children, Angelina Jolie went through an extremely dark period of time.

According to celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith star’s troubled childhood screwed her up badly.

“This book tells the true story of her life, the one where, as a little baby, she was on the fifth floor on a crib because her mother couldn’t bear to look at her because she reminded her of Jon Voight, her husband who had left her for another woman,” wrote Morton.

In addition to that, she allegedly experimented with drugs, and cut herself to feel better. Morton added, “And that’s a sense of release and for most of us, it’s weird but for someone like Angelina, who’s in this psychological trauma, it’s a release.”

There were also rumors swirling about her whirlwind marriage to actor Billy Bob Thornton, as well as the strange relationship with her brother (they were caught kissing on multiple different occasions).

These allegations haunted the actress as she auditioned for the role of Lara Croft in the 2001 action film Tomb Raider. Her father, actor Jon Voight, and Jabe Fonda warned then-chairwoman of Paramount Pictures, Sherry Lansing, about Jolie’s “baggage,” and as as a result she was subjected to a drug test.

“Look, I want to do it, but I know what my reputation is, and I’ll do anything you want to prove that I’m worthy,” Jolie told the film’s director, according to an excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter. “I’ll be reliable, and I’ll turn up, and I’ll work hard. I don’t care if the studio wants to drug test me every day.”

The Paramount executives were also concerned about Jolie’s physical and mental well-being, so they also hired a team of professionals to help her. The movie went on to become a box-office success, earning $275 million worldwide on its opening weekend. It also helped set up Jolie, who was 24-years-old at the time, to become one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood.

But despite her overnight success, she was still battling an inner demon, and contemplated taking her life in the most shocking way.

The Oscar-winning actress is as famous for her philanthropy as her movie career. She is a longtime United Nations High Commission for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador, using her celebrity status to draw attention to issues around the world. Her work for children and women has earned her recognition, including the Citizen of the World Award.

So maybe it’s not so surprising that the International Criminal court approached the actress, hoping to sign her up for a dangerous mission to capture the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony. Details of the daring plan were leaked in a set of over 40,000 documents obtained by French website Mediapart.

Kony was the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army militia, and is wanted by the ICC for crimes against humanity, including for abducting children who he trained to fight as child soldiers. Famously, he was the target of the “Kony 2012” social media campaign, which hoped to help capture the warlord.

By the time Jolie was brought in on the plan in 2012, Kony was still on the loose with a $5 million bounty on his head, hiding in a heavily armored and guarded compound in Sudan.

That’s when the famous actress was recruited to help bring him to justice…
