Brangelina's secret to successful romance

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie admits the secret to her successful romance with partner Brad Pitt is not living apart for more than three days. The 35-year-old actress insists that they 'stay really connected' and spend quality time with their young family, which has made their relationship work, Contactmusic reported.

'There's never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected. We actually don't go out much. It's funny. We're very homebound. We're very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas,' Jolie said.

The actress has adopted three children Maddox, Zahara and Pax and also has three biological kids, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne with Pitt. Jolie admits they have to do a lot of planning before hand to make sure that they balance their acting careers with their family life and Pitt coordinates well at every step.

'He takes the kids to school; he visits me on set with the kids. I'm home for dinner, or I'm there for breakfast. We're together all the time. We plan. Brad and I take time off between films to travel, have big experiences, do things together. That's how we work it out,' Jolie explained.

The Hollywood beauty fell in love with Pitt on the sets of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005 and the two have been together since then. Jolie still struggles to exactly define 'love' but admits that it 'elevates her' and makes her give a higher priority to her dear ones.

'I feel sad for someone who has never known love. Love elevates. You know, Brad would joke about me having this conversation about love. Love? It's such a funny word. Brad can find certain phrases of poetry for it. I'm terrible at it. But I know it means wanting the best for the people you love, putting their interests above your own, always. Love does that. Love is what you live for,' she added.

A bitter Lindsay Lohan called Judge Marsha Revel 'a f****** bitch' after being sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Hours after the sentence, the Mean Girls star complained to her friends, Revel hates her, was out to get her, and thinks 
all the judge wanted to do was make an example out of her. 
Lindsay insisted she does not have a problem with drugs or alcohol.

Meanwhile, some defence lawyers who practice at the Beverly Hills courthouse believe Judge Revel's sentence was out of 
whack. 
Many lawyers who have had similar cases before Judge Revel say none of their clients have gotten more than 30 days in jail, for similar probation violations.

'No one gets 90 days for this. No one,' TMZ quoted a source as saying.
 
But Lindsay will be getting some star treatment as she will have a private cell.

Jackie Chan is so impressed with Will Smith's son, Jaden and his work that he jokingly asked the actor if he could adopt him.

The Chinese actor is all praises for Jaden and believes that with few months of training the boy can become a good martial artist.

'He's the young Jackie Chan,' the Daily Telegraph quoted Chan as saying.

'I tell his parents, 'Let him stay in China for three months, trust me I will take care of him'. I''m sure in three months' training he can get much better. I tell Will Smith, 'Can I adopt your son?' That's how much I love him,' he added.
