This Week's Biggest Losers 06/16/07

6/16/2007 3:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Angelina JolieWe were all witnesses this week to LeBron James learning some hard lessons at the hands of the future Mr. Eva Longoria. And King James' 0-4 flameout was echoed in the Zone by similarly cavalier behavior.

Angelina Jolie: She looked fantastic Thursday on "Larry King Live," but her mighty machinations the day before were just plain ugly. Hours before the New York premiere of her film "A Mighty Heart," Angelina unsuccessfully tried to have FOX News banned from the red carpet and get reporters who wanted to interview her to sign a consent form guaranteeing no personal questions, no future repurposing of the interview, and so on. This is a time-honored practice dating all the way back past "Eyes Wide Shut," but predictably, to do this for a film about journalistic heroism -- and one whose premiere benefited the non-profit advocacy group Reporters Without Borders -- sent media types over the edge. Angelina may be the top ranked actress on this week's Forbes Celebrity 100 (she's #14 on the list), but when she told Larry she has "great empathy" for journalists, she sounded about as phony as a three-dollar bill.



Kelly ClarksonKelly Clarkson: Short of finding out that Sanjaya was her opening act, Clarkson had about as bad a week as possible since being crowned "American Idol." Following reports that she was having a tug of war with recording industry legend Clive Davis over the contents of her upcoming new album "My December," Clarkson was forced to cancel a planned 40-city arena tour because of disappointing ticket sales. She also fired her manager, Jeff Kwatinetz. Clarkson tells Elle Magazine that she turned down an offer of $10 million from Davis to swap out five tracks on the upcoming album for songs he felt were more commercially viable. On the one hand, you have to admire her spunk; on the other, this is Clive Davis! If they decide not to release "My December," maybe she can go hard rock and wail about "My May and June."

Dan Rather Dan Rather: There's no doubt that Dan has a right to feel a little miffed (still) about how his final days at CBS were handled. But that's no reason to start calling out your successor, Katie Couric, on FOX News' "Your World" program. Dan now traffics in high definition feature pieces for Mark Cuban, but his thought process here was definitely more of the low-definition variety. Within a day or so of making his remarks, Rather was in the sights of not just CBS head honcho Les Moonves, but also every right-wing -- and left-wing -- blogger with laptop battery power. Rather is a man who loves homespun analogies, so here's one for him from TMZ: Your catcalls make about as much sense as trying to gussy up "Dallas" for the big screen. (Indeed, Larry Hagman claimed this week that the whole sorry 2008 endeavor has been scrapped.)

Michael Moore Michael Moore: This guy likes conspiracy theories, and it's hard not to think that someone who doesn't take too kindly to the Flint, Michigan rabble rouser's documentaries is behind this week's Internet leak of Moore's upcoming July 4 weekend shocker "Sicko." All of a sudden, the U.S. government's objections to Moore's trip to Cuba with 9/11 rescue workers to seek better health care treatment for the group's respiratory ailments, seem like the least of his problems. "Sicko" is all over the Internet, presenting the Weinstein Co. with much bigger problems than those faced by 20th Century Fox after a Memphis movie theater projectionist wrote on "Ain't It Cool News" about how bad he thought "The Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" was.

David Chase David Chase: In a canned interview published Tuesday in the "New Jersey Star-Ledger," the creator of the best gangster drama this side of Martin Scorsese insisted he was not trying to mess with heads with the fade-to-black mystery ending of Sunday's final Episode 86. But a large part of the Tony Soprano nation is having none of it, even in light of increasing evidence that all the clues were there to suggest that T got popped. For many "Sopranos" fans, Sunday's permanent cliffhanger was about as much fun as being shot in the gut by Uncle Junior.

Whoever wrote this sounds like the real phony. Your full of rightiousness about what Angelina says, look at what your doing as your so called job. Snarky comments, nosy business, putting your one cent opinion that does'nt make sense, just to make a snarky comments. It's that your job? It figures. Your kind is the one that Angelina is leery about. You twist and turn the actual statement, so when you do your snarky business, you act like it's the real thing, huh.

MAKE YOUR MONEY IN THE USA .. ADOPT OUR MULTI COLOR ORHANS INSTEAD OF MAKING A BUSINESS AGREEMENT SO SHE WILL INSURE INTERNATIONAL FAME IN THE FUTURE. ANGELINA IS A BUSINESS PERSON AND A TRAMP, A FRAUD AND A FAKE. ON LARRY KING SHE WAS LYING MUCH OF THE TIME IF YOU PAID ATTENTION. She couldn't answer direcly several of his questions and his wern't tough ones. Jolie stumbled over some of them and flirted and acted female when she is not .. she is tough and hard and self absorbed into the occult. She is the weird crazy we learned to know long ago... it is only by buying kids her image is softened and saved. DON'T BUY HER LINES .. SHE IS AND INCESTUAL UNGRATEFUL DAUGHTER WHOSE DAD LEFT HE SAW HIS WIFE ALLOWING WHAT WE ALL SAW WHEN SHE TONGUE LAPPED HER OWN BROTHER AT THE AWARDS ON TV. ANGELINA IS NO ANGEL ONLY A HARDENED HEART

To be honest I don't think she is "The hot item" the press makes her out to be. She is a home wrecker, no matter how many kids she adopts, she will always be one. The problem is she believes everything the press writes about her. Well the press built her up...and the press will tear her down. As goes Paris goes the world.HMMMM freedom of speech for everyone except when it has to do with Jolie just won't fly. Careful girl you may be on top of the moutain now but the other side is just as steep going down...and is alot faster. darlene

Hey MICHAEL MOORE, we saw you on Letterman putting down America again... I like your style. Why don't you get the hell out of the USA and live where you can trash us, because I'm hoping your fat ass will get run over by a left wing crazy driving a gasoline truck. You are not an American that I respect, you are working with the terrorists and plotting against us. Move buddy .. we don't want y ou!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE NOT A PATRIOT BUT A TERRORIST MICHAEL MOORE. YOU ARE A DIRTY FILTHY SLOB TOO!!!

Angelina should have that mole above her eyebrow removed. Whoever coined the term "beauty mark" was in dire need of glasses. Nasty!

Tired of Paula's Antics    

6 - ITA - the tmz poster girl is Paris Hilton . . . I think they feel threatened by celebrities who have talent that don't need tmz to prop up their 'careers' . . . was tmz even invited to the press conference? It doesn't look like it given that grainy photo of the contract . . .

rosie oddennel is hot    

Very typical. Anyone who can't see through her behavior is nuts. She is about as shallow as they come. She is also leading the pack in anorexia. What a shameful example for young women.
