Angelina's Press Muzzle -- The Document

6/15/2007 5:35 PM PDT
TMZ has obtained the now infamous letter that Angelina Jolie's reps sent out to the press in advance of interviews for "A Mighty Heart" -- and the range of demands is stunning.

To begin with, the document, sent from the office of attorney Robert Offer, demands that the interview be used only "to promote ["A Mighty Heart"]," and not "in connection with any other story." What's more, the letter tries to compel reporters not to use the interview " in a manner that is disparaging, demeaning or derogatory to Ms. Jolie," without specifying what that might mean. All this on top of no questions about "personal relationships," which presumably could mean any other human being on the face of the planet.

Yesterday, on "The Daily Show," Jolie disavowed the contract, which was first reported by FOX News, calling it "excessive," adding that it was her handlers, not she, who sent it out. USA Today and the AP, among other organizations, refused to sign the document.
