Talking points

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Angelina knows who she is

Angelina Jolie doesn’t love acting as much as she used to, she tells the Financial Times. “I think when I was younger, I needed it more. I was trying to question things in life, so you find these characters that help you find things and grow,” she explains. “I’m older, and I know who I am.” And while she isn’t necessarily talking retirement, Jolie says she and Brad Pitt’s days in Hollywood are numbered. “As Brad and I get older, we’re going to do fewer films,” she says. “We’ve had a nice run, and I don’t want to be doing this our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do.”

He’s not a player … really

Rumors of Ryan Reynolds’ post-divorce dating life have been greatly exaggerated, the actor insists. “Right now I seem to be on a speed-dating mission — at least according to those rumors that are going around,” Reynolds says, according to Hollyscoop. “Even my mom is confused. No man is potent enough to be able to go through as many women as that in such a short amount of time like I allegedly have.” As for his actual love life, Reynolds says he’s still getting over his split from Scarlett Johansson: “I’m just giving myself time to put everything that has happened behind me, and I’m taking things as they come. But I’m going to be ready for a relationship again soon,” he says.

Miley Cyrus’ latest ink

To show her support for same-sex marriage, Miley Cyrus has had an equal sign tattooed on her right ring finger. The Disney star showed off the new ink with a photo posted on Twitter, adding that “all love is equal.” One Cyrus fan was quick to disagree with her stance, to which Cyrus replied, “Where does it say in the Bible to judge others? Oh right, it doesn’t. God is the only judge, honey. ‘God is love.’”
