Angelina Jolie is 'disgusted that we have gotten to this point as a country'

Angelina Jolie is 'disgusted that we have gotten to this point as a country'
Angelina Jolie has been isolating in LA with her children during the pandemic. She?s got all six kids home with her, although the younger kids are likely keeping up with their visits to Brad Pitt. This is the first time in a long time where Angelina is just HOME, with no far-flung refugee camp to visit or some movie to film. Which might explain why Angelina has been doing a lot of Time Magazine op-eds, Time Magazine videos, and just general awareness-raising around many issues involving the children of the pandemic. Angelina donated $1 million to No Kid Hungry, and now she?s writing letters to advocate for an increase in SNAP benefits:

Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie is lobbying Congress to increase food assistance to families across the U.S. as the coronavirus pandemic keeps millions in their homes and children out of schools, where many receive free meals. The Academy Award winner, who is well-known for her work internationally with refugees and conservation and human rights groups, wrote a letter to top congressional leaders, shared exclusively with USA TODAY, asking that Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits be increased to help children who she says are going hungry because schools are closed and parents are out of work.

Many of the most vulnerable children in America have missed nearly 740 million meals at school, due to closure resulting from the rapid spread of coronavirus. With parents facing lost jobs and wages, many of these children are going hungry, she wrote in the April 20 letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

While strengthening SNAP will not alleviate all of the challenges low-income families are facing during the public health emergency, it will help ensure that fewer children go to bed hungry in our country, she said.

Congress has increased food assistance benefits by more than $15 billion amid the pandemic but Jolie and advocates argue more is needed, a proposal that Democrats have similarly demanded but failed to pass muster with Republicans in the last round of stimulus funding approved late last month. About half of all U.S. public schoolchildren rely on free or reduced-price meals. And while schools across the country have tried to continue providing grab-and-go lunches to those in need, some have halted such programs or limited them as workers have contracted COVID-19.

[From USA Today]

Yeah, Moscow Mitch won?t do sh-t about it. I doubt many Republicans will care, even though many of them come from districts or states which rely heavily on SNAP benefits. USA Today also says that before Angelina sent the letter, she did a video conference call with local food banks and No Kid Hungry, and they all discussed the very real cuts to food-assistance programs under the Trump administration, and many of those cuts were already in motion before millions of children lost their one meal a day at public school. During the call, Angelina apparently grew more and more upset with the realities of so many American children going hungry. She reportedly said, ?I knew that there were problems in America. I knew that there was poverty. I could not believe when I realized how many schoolchildren in America were dependent on a meal to not go hungry. I was so disgusted that we have gotten to this point as a country. Me too.

Jessica Simpson hits back on 'body-shaming' & 'nauseating' Vogue oral history story

Jessica Simpson hits back on 'body-shaming' & 'nauseating' Vogue oral history story
On Monday, which would have been Met Gala Day, Vogue published an ?oral history? of the gala. The gala was postponed indefinitely this year, and while we haven?t heard anything about it possibly going on in the fall, I think the chances are pretty good that there simply won?t be a Met Gala this year. Still, we got to enjoy some vintage drama from the Vogue oral history, including this story from a Vogue staffer named Sally Singer. Singer told a story about Jessica Simpson and John Mayer at the 2007 Met Gala:

On Monday, Vogue published a comprehensive oral history of the Met Gala, which includes a series of excerpts written by celebrities, designers, models and more. In the post, former Vogue creative digital director Sally Singer recalled witnessing a surprising exchange between Jessica Simpson and her then-boyfriend John Mayer in 2007.

Singer revealed that at the Poiret: King of Fashion-themed ball, Simpson?s breasts maybe fell out of her plunging, beaded Roberto Cavalli halter-neck gown while she was on the red carpet. And, according to the fashion editor, the wardrobe malfunction only got worse when Simpson, now 39, and Mayer, now 42, took their seats inside.

?At dinner it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson?s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I?m looking at them,? Singer said in the Vogue piece. ?And John Mayer was putting his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached down and I just remember thinking, ?Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here. That?s what?s going on?.?

[From People]

When Jessica released her memoir earlier this year, there was a lot of introspection from various media figures about how they treated Jessica over the years. She was used as a punchline for a lot longer than it was funny, and a lot longer than her ?ditzy America?s Sweetheart? act went on. You know what I mean? She played up the ditzy thing on Newlyweds, but for years after that, people still treated her like she could barely function because she was so stupid. Anyway, Jessica posted this on her IG:

Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger ( ?But in all seriousness I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world?s opinions about it for my entire adult life. To read this much anticipated article about the classiest fashion event there is and have to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating.

Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher get their single friends to teach their kids on Zoom
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher appeared on at home version of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. They?re promoting their Quarantine Wine, which is apparently very successful, having raised about $1M so far. Since all the profits go to four really good charities, I?m very happy it?s making the money it is. I?d be even happier if Mila and Ashton would stop talking over each other to tell us about it, though. Mila and Ashton are parents to daughter Wyatt, five, and son Dimitri, three. Since it is teacher appreciation week, Jimmy asked them about how their homeschooling efforts were going. Mila said she was a great TA but that Ashton had really found a love of teaching. Theyre also calling in friends via Zoom to teach their kids any lesson of their choice.

How are you with the home schooling?

Mila: The one thing we did do, which I feel is a good hack, is we enlisted our friends to do like 20-minute zoom sessions with our kids. It?d be like teach our kids anything. And it could be anything from making flower arrangements to architecture to anything. And so that gives us 20 minutes of not parenting and also allows our kids to have another type of interaction.

Ashton: And it works really well with people who are single and they?re home, they?re alone, they don?t have kids that they?re chasing around all day. So they?ve got a free 20 or 30 minutes and the kid just engage(s) in them. And so we did like one architecture lesson and we did one recyclable energy lesson and we baked cookies for one, we did a flower arranging for one.

Mila: But we piggy-back off of our kids curriculum. I don?t want to take away, their schools are amazing at helping the parents every week.

Ashton explained their next lesson is about how the human body works with a focus on how long it takes to make poop. Enlisting one?s friend to help teach is a good idea. I remember, long before lockdown when our kids were about Wyatt and Dimitri?s age, my local friend group discussed whether we could make a homeschool situation work with each of us taking a subject. We, of course, thought we were on the precipice of an educational revolution ? until we acknowledged we could handle maybe a week of it and it would all fall apart. But one 20-minute Zoom session on anything I want to teach is right up my alley. I know a lot of grandparents that are reading stories to their grandchildren via Zoom or FaceTime. The families coordinate and get the same books and the child follows along as they grandparent reads. Everyone is so thrilled with it, I know they?ll continue post lockdown. And, as Mila said, it gives the parents a small respite.

I?m sure everyone readily agreed to this arrangement but listening to Ashton describe it (the video is posted below), he almost sounds like he thinks his single friends owe his kids a 20-minute lesson because they have nothing better to do. If his intent was to say that his single friends are stuck at home, alone and desperate for company so they jumped at the opportunity to put together a lesson plan, then great. But if they?re hitting their friends up and guilting them in to giving them a break, they better send a case of their Quarantine Wine as payment for the single person?s time.

Here?s the interview with homeschool comments:

They also did this voice swapping bit Jimmy asked them to do. They found it much funnier than I did, but they had a lot of fun with it so that was nice:
