Angelina And Kung Fu Cast Have Bizarre Press Conference At Cannes

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm FlickersJack Black

Jolie Fields Weird Questions

The press conference was for Kung Fu Panda 2, which, if you can't tell from the title and live in a hole, is an animated children's film. She's plays the Tigress.

The first movie was well-reviewed, and widely known.

However, the press conference at Cannes resulted in some weird questions that had nothing to do with the movie. Especially for Jolie:

Jolie, who voices Tigress in the computer animated 'Kung Fu Panda 2' and its predecessor, was grilled about "Jolie's children, Jolie's motherhood, Jolie playing tough women, Jolie playing a tigress, Jolie's great popularity in China, what Jolie thinks about bin Laden."

Being taken aback by being asked about bin Laden at the press conference of a kid's movie, Jolie said:

"I'm here in the context of 'Kung Fu Panda'; I'd rather not get into such a heavy issue."

Which is DEF the right thing to say! We're so glad she didn't take the bait and talk about it at all, because the movie is just innocent fun. That question had no right to be there!

Not only that, though, but her co-stars Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman got some weirdo questions too:

Another reporter asked Jolie, Black and Hoffman how they felt about 'Kung Fu Panda' series creating some of their most memorable roles after such distinguished careers.

"Well," said Dustin Hoffman, laughing at the blunt question, "I think it's a fitting end to a long, distinguished career. If, you know, if I was never aware of irony before, I am now."

The stars were also quizzed about how they find inner peace. Hoffman's reply? "I've never been so at peace as I am at this moment, being this famous, in front of all these cameras, and sitting next to Angelina."

Hoffman has always been known for giving witty, charming, and playful interviews. We're glad he took the unusual questions in stride!

Regardless of the weirdness, it doesn't change the fact that we're excited to see the movie guys! You handled that conference really well!

    It would be even better if Angie stopped using nannies to raise the 96 kids she purchased.

    I wouldn't blame the paps for going crazy with the questions. it's not often satan angie deigns to speak to media at all, so of course they wanted to catch up on all their questions. although i agree it's pretty stupid to not have some kind of focus for the movie, especially when talking to the other actors. i hope they don't decide to do another kung fu panda.

    Why are they giving the kid movie voice overs to these already movie stars now?
    They don't have ee-nough money? There are plenty of faceless voices that could use it. Kids could care less that it's Angelina Jolie's vocal chords.
