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.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Sandra is a beautiful classy lady who is giving Louis all the world has to offer. Angelina is an anorexic, homewrecking, baby collector who can't even handle a conventional marriage for the sake of her children.

"TMZ has learned?" From what? From reading people magazine, us weekly and other celeb mags from when angie and bb divorced?The timing of Maddox's adoption in relation to when the two crazies split was public knowledge, but thanks for passing it off like you guys did some work.

EWE.......DONT EVER PUT SANDRA BULLOCK IN THE SAME CATAGORY AS ANGELINA JOLIE CAUSE SANDRA HAS CLASS AND ANGELINA IS MORE LIKE TRASH. SANDRA BULLOCK IS AN AMAZING WOMAN AND IS GOING TO MAKE A WONDERFUL MOM CAUSE THIS DECISION WAS MADE FROM HER HEART......ANGELINA ADOPTS FOR PUBLICITY AND GETS PREGNANT TO KEEP BRAD PITT!!!!!

I think celebrities are from another planet. And impressionable people from the real world try to emulate them and do stupid things like have a child without the benefits of marriage and then get stuck on welfare. Sandra's decision sounds irrational to me. And who has all the dogs she and Jesse owned together?

This is hardly news. It was reported in 2003 and again in 2009 in the book "Brangelina", that Billy Boob and Angelina started the process together then he backed out when they divorced.
Congrats to Sandra

TMZ, comparing the beautiful Sandra Bullock to that hag Jolie, is like comparing Filet Mignon to road kill. Also Sandra's baby was an American adoption and Jolie is not allowed to adopt here because of her mental condition.

Sandra Bullock is not beautiful, the cartilage in Sandra’s nose protrudes around each nostril, and at least Angelina Jolie started her family at a reasonable age.

Maybe next time a celebrity will buy a monkey PuertoRican baby. They can start with one of J-LO's ugly monkey twins since she apparently doesn't want them which is why we never see them in public.

There is NOTHING remotely even similar with these two. Bullock has more class in her pinky!

i think its really the guy saying "i dont want to adopt". adoption is great but i think it really tests things between people. not that jesse isn't a huge jerk, because he really is, just in general.

Perhaps it's because most of the TMZ staffers weren't old enough to have jobs in 2003, but the story about Maddox and the Jolie-Thornton divorce was discussed ad nauseum back when it happened. It was all over the news.



Here's a tip for the TMZ writers--try using Google once in awhile. It only takes a second or two......seriously.

Media is nothing but propaganda and entertainment is its most important and effective wing.



You are what is inside your mind and what is inside your mind is what's on television (or on internet gossip sites).



This is your subconscius after years of following entertainment.
http://www.google.com/images?q=celebrity+adoption



Media brainwashes white 'modern and independent' women with the examples of these paid whores. After you've been fooled by feminism to waste you're life making a career, your biological clock is ticking, maybe you were stupid enough to get sterilization 'because there are too many people in world' and you have dumped your jessejames with yells of 'gogirl' from your fellow Sex'n'Citiers, then what are you going to do? The same powerstructure has given you a solution to that problem.



Why do white males support this disgusting antiwhite and racemixing media?



Everything you see in media is scripted down to these divorces and scandals. They are actors and whores, just like politicians.
