Angelina Jolie knows that she can appear to be a bit austere in the public eye, but when she's at home, the brunet beauty says, she relaxes and makes sure to have fun. The 38-year-old actress-director, who appears in character for "Maleficent" on this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, told the mag she's a different person at home. "Outside my home I can be somewhat serious," Jolie said ( via People). "We laugh and we play, and I'm light again, and I'm a kid again, and I'm loving and soft again, because they've brought that back in my life.

Tequila isn't in an exclusive relationship with sweet-and-sour mix. No, the margarita does not own its tempting agave heart. The spirit lends itself nicely to a variety of other mixers, including hibiscus juice. It lovingly cohabitates with this ruby-colored nectar in a cocktail called Angelina at Mas Malo in downtown Los Angeles. Made from the flower of the same name, the juice's flavor is soft and sweet. The addition of hibiscus-infused tequila, a hint of simple syrup and the tart tang of lime makes the drink as addictive as a kiss.

As an actress, Angelina Jolie has played her share of butt-kicking, larger-than-life action heroines.

Depending on how one counts, it was a meeting either six months or almost 20 years in the making. The major participants? Two pop-culture luminaries. One was Angelina Jolie, the Oscar winner who launched 1,000 paparazzi and carried off with swagger such action flicks as "Wanted" and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider." The other was Patricia Cornwell, one of the world's most commercial authors. The topic was Kay Scarpetta, Cornwell's signature character, the medical examiner in 17 mystery novels.

This letter is in reference to the story in the May 18 issue about the marriage between Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie ("We've Only Just Begun"). It was neither news nor was it funny. It made fun of these two people by ridiculing their multiple marriages and Angelina's close relationship with her brother. This article did not enlighten or entertain me and I am disappointed that the L.A. Times chose to put such an unworthy article in its newspaper. --KATHLEEN NIEDERST GOODMAN Tarzana

The final shoe has yet to drop for "Sex and the City's" Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, according to the franchise's star, Sarah Jessica Parker.

"Son of God" won't be giving the devil his due - or rather, his screen time. To avoid another controversy about the character of Satan bearing a physical resemblance to President Obama in the upcoming religious film, the filmmakers have gone out of their way to edit the devil's scenes out of "Son of God," which is based on the TV miniseries "The Bible. " "It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting-room floor," producer Roma Downey told the Hollywood Reporter . "This is now a movie about Jesus, the son of God, and the devil gets no more screen time.

The evil sorceress from "Sleeping Beauty" looks pretty evil indeed. The new poster for Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent" has been unveiled, and the actress doesn't look like someone you'd have over for Thanksgiving supper. In a black, horned headdress from a costume designed by Anna B. Sheppard ("DragonHeart," "Schindler's List" and "The Pianist"), Jolie stares out in the poster as if she has some rather dangerous designs. The movie is a retelling of the famous fable from the point of view of its villainess.

The annual Gallup poll of the most admired men and women in America has come out, and it contains two actors, a queen, a pope, a Pakistani, a talk show host and a plethora of politicians. President Obama hung on to the top spot on the list of most admired men, despite the healthcare drama, for the sixth year in a row.  Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton was first on the list of most admired women -- her record-setting 18th (count 'em) time on the list.  Francis, the pope whose popularity soared in 2013 amid anecdotes of his selflessness and frugality, tied for second with George W. Bush.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards - or as Martin Short called them, the "highest honor an actor can receive ... in mid-November" - were presented Saturday evening in Hollywood. And Short's joking comment aside, the evening made for a heartfelt tribute to three movie legends - Steve Martin, Angela Lansbury and Italian costume designer Piero Tosi - picking up honorary awards for their body of work, as well as Angelina Jolie, winner of the academy's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.

In case you were unaware, Angelina Jolie is famous. Like, really famous. So in one sense it's perfectly logical that she would top the most recent Forbes list for highest-paid actresses, with earnings of $33 million over the last year, according to a report from the magazine earlier this week. The Guardian broke down that number to include a $10-million contract with Louis Vuitton and a $15-million salary for her upcoming role as the evil stepmother in a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale, “Maleficent,” scheduled for release next year.

A jewelry swap by Jolie for the purposes of a U.N. humanitarian trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday had some imaginations churning. Us Weekly, which has apparently been watching Jolie's left hand very carefully, first called attention to a gold band that replaced Angie's massive sparkler during the trip to meet with survivors of sexual violence. Jolie had first touched down in Rwanda on Sunday.

In the course of our country's history, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has bestowed coveted protection on many strange and wondrous inventions: the three-legged pantyhose (in case one leg runs), the sealed, circular peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich, the motorized ice cream cone. And of course, the human gene. The human gene? How is that even possible? Could you patent a cat's whiskers? A cloud formation? A comb-over for a balding man? (Ah, well, yes, there is a comb - over patent out there somewhere.)
