There’s just something about Angelina Jolie that makes people think “Madonna”. The Madonna in the Bible, not the Madonna who adopts African babies, just like Angelina. (Though come to think of it, sometimes Angelina makes people think of that Madonna too.) In any event, the painter Kate Kretz generated some press and blog chatter recently with a work that literally elevated Angelina into the heavens.
As it a happens, my own humble publication did something similar last May when we included Jolie, complete with halo, in our Time 100 list of the world’s most influential people. Our illustration was by Anita Kunz. A thanks to my sharp eyed colleague Carolina Miranda for making the connection. Hail Angie, full of grace.
