Angelina Jolie Reveals She “Loves” Being in Menopause.

As Universal and Warner Bros. take hits with films from Angelina Jolie Pitt and Sandra Bullock, respectively, failing at the box office, passion projects greenlighted for big studio stars face off against the new Hollywood frugality.Angelina Jolie said that she didn’t have a terrible reaction to her hormonal changes as she’s felling really happy about getting older and doesn’t feel to be young again, People Magazine reported. The 40-year-old actress also mentioned that unfortunately because of her recent health choices, the shooting for her latest film with husband Brad Pitt, ‘By The Sea’, got affected like cutting topless scenes.

For years, Hollywood studios have lined up to back projects with limited commercial appeal as a way of keeping the biggest stars and directors in their fold. The By the Sea star has been keen to make it clear that, far from feeling the surgeries have had a detrimental effect on her life, these days she feels more womanly than ever. “I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family,” she wrote in her article back in March. “I know my children will never have to say, ‘Mom died of ovarian cancer.’” One source scoffs at the $10 million figure, noting that Jolie Pitt’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, a Serbian-language war film with a no-name cast, cost $13 million.

And if By the Sea’s poor reviews and low-appeal concept wasn’t enough to damage the film’s box-office prospects, the marketing sealed its fate. “If you have two of the hottest movie stars on the planet, you might want to put them on the poster,” says Rentrak analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Despite poor reviews at the Toronto Film Festival in September, Warners is said to have spent about $40 million to market the film. (The blow to the studio was softened by financial partners Participant and RatPac-Dune). In offering an explanation for the disaster, marketing chief Sue Kroll also underscored the relationship factor. “We cherish our relationship with her,” said Kroll of Bullock. “Ultimately, neither the concept of the story nor our campaign connected with moviegoers.” Even with Bullock in the lead, the film probably was a better fit for the indie-financed model, as has been the case with many of Crisis director David Gordon Green’s films. Paramount, too, invoked the relationship raison d’etre when explaining Michael Bay’s 2013 bodybuilding passion project Pain and Gain, which wasn’t a disaster but which grossed far less than his usual big-budget fare.

Pascal long had been a champion of the back-scratcher, including the 2013 debacle After Earth, a film that was intended to make Jaden Smith a star like his father, Will Smith. The final poster for the $130 million film instead used a split face of the father and son, leaving one of the world’s biggest stars barely recognizable. “With these types of movies, you’re not swinging for the box-office fence,” adds Dergarabedian. “You’re swinging for the relationship-building fence and looking toward the future.

As marketing expenses skyrocket for even modestly budgeted movies and studios make fewer homegrown films, many say the leverage has shifted away from stars. Plus, some of the best examples of passion projects that have worked were self-financed, like Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ ($612 million worldwide) and Magic Mike (star Channing Tatum and director Steven Soderbergh put up the $7 million budget for the film that earned $167 million worldwide).
