This is the second time I have seen Angelina Jolie shop at Lee's Art Shop. If you like Chachkis, then you are gonna love Lee's. Sure it's and artsy store with crayons, pads, portfolios but it also has lots of Chachkis and things to look at like ceramic dogs, calendars, balloons, pinatas paper goods, its like looking at the finished products you would find at AC Moore, and a bit upscale. I love this place, and it looks like Angie does too, I heard she stopped by on Friday to pick up a few things. She's no longer in NYC, I heard from a friend who "chased" Angie (to get graphs) and the family to the airport. I couldn't understand why they had to do that since she was so accommodating all week, but who knows, its not my cup of tea as mom would say.
This week there was a big controversy about Angie & Brad putting restrictions on the media (interviewers) about prying into their private lives. It was ironic considering the charity that benefitted from her "Mighty Heart" movie premiere last Wednesday was "Reporters without Borders", but even though she may have had restrictions on the press, she's always been wonderful with the fans and paparazzi. http://www.tmz.com/2007/06/15/angelina-i-didnt-ban-anyone/
Angelina Jolie Helps Stranded Paparazzi (People Magazine)
Actress Angelina Jolie did her daily good deed when she stopped and helped a photographer who had a flat tire in New York.
Celebrity photographer James Ambler was trailing the star of "A Mighty Heart" around New York on his bike, when he popped one of his tires, People magazine reported Saturday.
While figuring out what he was going to do, Jolie's car pulled up to him and the driver asked if he wanted a ride. Ambler, whose nickname is "Lance" after cycling champ Lance Armstrong, then heard Jolie herself say, "Come on Lance, hop in."
While riding, Jolie reportedly told Ambler she was appreciative of the space some of the photographers were giving her children. He added he was not sure exactly how much time he spent in the car with Jolie, "Time stood still," he said.
He described the actress as "really down to earth, really lovely."
