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

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.

Angelina Jolie and stunt coordinator Simon Crane share a shorthand developed over six movies in which the petite, 34-year-old actress has spent almost as much time harnessed to cables as she has sitting in the makeup chair. "We know how to write an action sequence that plays to her skill set," Crane says by phone from Venice, Italy, where he's now working with Jolie and Johnny Depp on "The Tourist." "She's probably more opinionated and stubborn than when we first started. But then, that's my job — to tell her what is possible and what is not."

Angelina Jolie's bodyguards on Thursday allegedly roughed up parents and students at a school in the Indian city of Mumbai where the star was filming scenes for her latest movie, with one guard calling parents "bloody Indians," witnesses said.
