Angelina Jolie Refuses to Celebrate Thanksgiving: It's a Story of Murder

November 25th, 2010 10:24 AM

Today's "You're Really a Turkey" award goes to actress Angelina Jolie who according to a friend so despises Thanksgiving that she's intentionally out of the country.

The gossip website Popeater is also reporting that Jolie feels Americans are celebrating a story of murder (h/t Big Hollywood):

"Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans," a friend of the actress tells me. "To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn't her style. She definitely doesn't want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder." [...]

"Angelina gets so grossed out by Thanksgiving that she has made sure her family will not be in America this year on Thursday," an insider tells me.

And although Brad Pitt recently told 'EXTRA,' "We'll whip up a turkey somewhere," he certainly hasn't shared that plan with Angelina. A family friend tells me, "If Brad wants turkey, he will have to cook it himself. For Angie, it will be another day when America tries to rewrite history."

It never ceases to amaze me how some of the folks that have been the most enriched by America's love and adoration are ashamed and embarrassed by what makes this country so great.

If she loathes America's past so much, maybe she should give back all the money she's made here.

Alas, that wouldn't make for a very happy Thanksgiving, would it?
