Jolie nice

22 Mar

So photos from Angelina Jolie’s first modelling shoot, back when she was just fifteen years old go up for sale in California this Friday.

Posing the question, is it right to want to buy them?

Angelina is known as a sex symbol far and wide. But buying photos of her when she’s just a child, still sporting the trademark pout, in just her bikini. Isn’t that a bit wrong?

In some you can clearly tell how young she is, but in others you can’t tell a difference from how she looks today.

If these were not photos of Angelina, would you be wanting to plaster them across your wall? If instead they were you 15-year-old daughter, sister or niece ?

I know she is known worldwide for her beauty, but it just seems worrying to me that here, even at such a young age she’s tried so hard to be sexy.

    There is something worrying about this and the demand is going to be huge, it does make you wonder why anyone would want pictures of a 15 year old? She certainly doesn’t look 15 though.

    I totally agree – I find it really worrying that she’s only 15 and trying to be/being so sexy in these photos. I mean she should LEGALLY even be having sex!

    It should be written like this -

    Early modelling snaps of Angeline Jolie have recently been uncovered and are set to go up for auction in California this week.

    The series of photos feature Jolie as a 15 year old star in the making, which poses a question, Should they be sold?

    Having starred in films such as ‘Wanted’, ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ & ‘Tomb Raider’, Angelina is known as a sex symbol across the globe.
    One of the photos, sporting her future trademark pout, even features her in a bikini.
    Is it right to purchase photos of her when she is a minor?
    If you were to imagine that these were not photos of Angelina, would you want to plaster them across your wall?
    If instead of a now beautiful movie star, they were you 15-year-old daughter, sister or niece?

      Thats how you would write it. I write in a conversational tone, Not an essay style. Cheers for the feedback though. Shame your trying to slag me off and can’t even put your name

    I am not slagging you off whatsoever, I speak English and therefore expect to read English.
    If this is for your uni work then surely it should be eloquent and free for grammatical mistakes?
    Nothing to do with who you are at all.

    It is unsettling to see how overly sexual she was posing at such a young age. I think the photos should belong to her or the photographer, anyone else would just be kind of creepy.

    Also I like your informal style of writing. I think blogs are better when they have a more personal tone.

    I have to say I disagree, Prior!

    Although Jolie is only 15 in these photographs, she looks older. Photography (and fashion) is all about illusions – she appears to be ‘of age’, even if she isn’t in reality.

    Seeing as there are no ethical problems in the photograph (i.e. she is not nude/having sex), I have no problem with it.
