They're famous so they have to pay the price of fame. However, who gives a rats piss what they got for the baby shower and what it all looked like!!! Angelina wants some privacy some time, ya know?? You wouldnl't want people snapping photos of your kids and family members 24/7, hiding in your trees & around your house and then posting them around the net and in magazines.

I've YET to see a smiling, happy photo of Brad & Angelina together & there's no doubt Shiloh was conceived thru a booty call....but they're probably so miserable-and look VERY stressed-at all the photogs snapping at them that they can't get a moments peace. They probably can't even take a dump without worrying if the paparazzi are hiding behind their bathroom window!!!

who really really cares? If people would stop flocking to get glimpses of stars and stop buying all the trash magazines these supposed "stars" wouldn't know what to do. Get a life people. there is nothing special about this Hollywood couple and everyone else who are "stars". Do you all not have a life that you have to watch someone else's life? Give it a break and go and do something useful with your life. Volunteer at a homeless or animal shelter, help your neighbor, mentor a child or go play with your own child.

Don't know who is responsible one way or another, not do I care!!!

If they were stolen, let the authorities investigate same and prosecute accordingly.

Does everyone overlook stuff because they like a celebrity. Brad and Angelina are far from saints. Someone had the audacity to say I love Angelina because she stands by her principles. Hogwash!! She was pregnant with Brad's child before he was divorced. Give me a freaking break. These people bounce back into stardom because people who are not celebreties put them on a pedestal for wrong doings. Working-class America needs to concentrate on themselves and not the people who have the money to buy their way out of anything. Who gives a damn about stolen photos...we will get to see them eventually when they are to sold to the highest bidder for more publicity.

People are crazy. They did not pimp out their kids, they knew that one way or the other a photo would get taken. They capatilized on this and made money off of it, for a good cause. They money made a donated to charity, it's not like they bought a house and 15 cars with the money. All of this hate comes from people who are either jealous of them or still mad about the "break-up" of Jen and Brad. Get over it!

I really don't care about what's their faces, they walk around like the rest of the world owes them something, if we had all that money I am sure we would donate to charity too. Anyways, dont care about the stupid pics, she's a tramp, chances are baby is going to be the same, and he's just dumb...

Enough with these people! They're now worried about personal pictures getting to the press. Where was that concern when they cashed their 4 million dollar check.

LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!!!!!!!! Celebs are humans. Just like you would not like for anyone to keep a spotlight on you when you leave the house, well guess what they don't either. Now, they may work in the spot light but that is just it WORK. These folks do not cook, eat, sleep and hold house in the spotlight. AMERICA get a life and leave these folk alone. They will let us know what they want us to know. Just like we as HUMANS let people let us know what we want them to know. There is a such thing as being PRIVATE.

Give me a break!!!! Like there is no other news going on... Why don't you give the $$$ you're spending on those high-priced lawyers to your precious starving children in Namibia? In fact why don't you move there permanently so we don't have to hear about you anymore?

#6, You'd best do some homework on copyrights before ranting. Copyrights are still legally binding regardless if they are recorded with the U.S. Copyright Office. The moment a line of text is written, image taken, etc... it is copyright protected. To sue, generally needs to be recorded, but the copyright backdates. With as many high powered lawyers as Pitt and Jolie have at their disposal, I am sure they have put their legal documentation in order.

I also would like to add that depending upon who ripped off the photos, Jolie and Pitt deserve to have a life that is private. They may use their fame to raise money for various charities, but they are still entitled to respect as individuals, parents, etc.

I doubt you would have the same opinion about the photographs if they had been stolen from someone you care about. Just because someone is famous and wealthy doesn't mean that they are automatically given a life sentence of stalking, theft, and invasion of privacy.
