Here's why Angelina is in financial trouble

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Is Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie deep in a financial trouble?

RadarOnline has recently come up with a bizarre report saying the ritzy Hollywood actress' wealth is in jeopardy as she was spotted shopping for Christmas gifts at America's most popular discount store — Target.

A dubious insider told the webloid, "Angie loves Target. It's one of her favourite stores and a place where she gets lots of her Christmas gifts. She has staff that can get her anything and go anywhere for her, yet one place she has been spotted is Target.

The insider further went on to add that Brad Pitt's estranged wife "is obsessed with finding cheap new deals — despite her millions!

RadarOnline also put a step forward to ask the readers, "Do you think Jolie is just collecting coupons for fun, or is she having money issues because of her nasty legal battle with Brad Pitt?

As usual, Gossip Cop looked into the story and debunked he entire report because TMZ already reported that Angelina Jolie will not be seeking spousal support from her husband post the divorce.

As noted by The Sun, the 42-year-old actress's net worth is £122 million (via Celebrity Net Worth). Hence Jolie's wealth is not in jeopardy.

Secondly, it is true that Jolie has been spotted in Target earlier, just like she goes to grocery store and flea markets as well.

Gossip Cop noted that Jolie's sighting's at Target has nothing to do with either her wealth or her ongoing divorce battle with Brad Pitt.

Like her, even former first lady Michelle Obama is also a well known fan of the popular discount store regardless she is also a millionaire.

Previously, RadarOnline's sister website OK! Magazine also allegedly claimed that "Jolie couldn't afford to finalise her divorce from Pitt" her cash flow was affecting the split negotiations. Then also Gossip Cop refuted all the rumours.

Notably, the Academy Award-winning actress earned a staggering £11 million last year.

According to Gossip Cop, these sites have "simply combined the ongoing divorce, her past trips to Target and the Christmas shopping season to form an unsubstantiated narrative about 'financial trouble.

Kate Winslet on Harvey Weinstein: He was just so horrible to deal with

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet, in a recent interview given to the Hollywood Reporter, has branded disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein as "horrible to deal with".

The 42-year-old actress revealed that Weinstein labelled her as 'difficult' she refused to be "bullied by him".

During the interview, Winslet said, "He was just so horrible to deal with. I was one of the ones he would label 'difficult' because I wouldn't do the things he would ask for me to do on a business-level. These were ridiculous requests. He didn't like me because I wouldn't be bullied by him.

The Wonder Wheel star also noted that she scored her first movie role in Heavenly Creatures in 1994, which was distributed by Weinstein's company Miramax, and the beauty says Weinstein was adamant he ''gave'' her the movie role.

He would come up to me every time I saw him, 'Don't forget who gave you your first movie! He didn't 'give me' my first movie - I auditioned for four months. Peter Jackson gave me the part. But, you know, how dare he even sow that seed in my mind, that in some way any part of my career had anything to do with him rooting for me or pushing for me or putting my name forward," noted Winslet.

The actress, who also worked with the producer's Weinstein Company in 2008 movie The Reader for which she won her first Oscar, and says she made a conscious decision not to thank Weinstein in her speech.

Winslet explained, "I just thought to myself, 'Well, if I can just get my own back in some way at this awful man, I'm not gonna thank him. If I happen to win that Oscar [for 'The Reader'], I am not going to say thank you.
