Sandra & Angelina -- The Adoption Connection

4/28/2010 5:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sandra Bullock and Angelina Jolie share a very interesting connection -- and it all has to do with their adopted babies Louis Bardo and Maddox, respectively ... and the timing of their divorces.

Sandra told People Magazine she and Jesse James set the wheels in motion to adopt Louis Bardo together ... but divorce changed the plan.  Sandra now says she's filing for single parent adoption.

TMZ has learned that's exactly what happened between Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton.  Although this has not been reported, sources connected with their divorce in 2003 tell TMZ, Angie and B.B. were going to jointly adopt Maddox, but when they decided to divorce, the plan changed and Billy Bob backed out of the adoption.

Adoption experts we've spoken with say turning a husband/wife adoption into a single parent adoption can complicate the adoption process ... but it seems to have worked out for both Angelina and Sandra.

TMZ, Never, ever put Sandra Bullock and Angelina in the same sentence. Sandra Bullock is and will always be a class act, regardless of the simularities.
Angelina Jolie is and will always be a HOMEWRECKER. Plain and Simple.

PLEASE DON'T EVER SAY SANDRA BULLOCK AND ANGELINA JOLIE IN THE SAME SENTENCE. ONCE IS A HOME-WRECKING FLOOZY AND THE OTHER WAS THE VICTIM OF ONE OF ANGELINA'S "SISTERHOOD"=WOMEN WHO GO AFTER MARRIED MEN. WHAT AN INSULT TO SANDRA!!!!!

This is hardly news. That was all discussed when Angelina and Billy Bob broke up. Some tabloids even claimed that Billy Bob changed his mind and that's why they broke up.

So in other words, no new story here. Sandra is going to be a single parent. Pretty sure we had deduced that from the earlier stories about the adoption in the first place.
And no connection to Angelina except the same thing happened to her long ago.
Wow TMZ. Scraping for a story must be hard.

Is this the line to lose over half my stuff and 18 years of income? Great look. The line is moving.

Except that Sandra waited four years to go through the right channels, while Angelina immediately bought her baby through a shady third world baby dealer, the proprietor of which went to jail in part because of Maddox's adoption. And Angelina was certifiably crazy, probably still is, no one should have given her a child back then.

Another similarity---both ex-husbands have that silly-looking hairy triangle thingy growing under their lip.

Oh Brother.....    

No reported? Oh please. I was just talking about it this morning. Comparing how Angelina's first adoption went down so similar. It was public knowledge back then that Angelina and Bill Bob were adopting the boy together, but he decided not to be a part of it because of the divorce. Hardly breaking news here.....Most of us CAN remember that far back.

Geez TMZ...
For years now you have done "comparisons", yet you ignore the best one ever (Bethenny Frankel & Andrew Hubastek) in favor of this nonsense?...



HUGE difference between Sandra and Angelina...
One is a self-serving media whore, the other managed to hoodwink even TMZ by keeping HER business PRIVATE...
One cheats with married men, the other was cheated on...
One is a true class act, the other is in a class all her own (not a good one either)...



Your basis for comparison is uniquely flawed...
