Fives a Crowd: Brangelina in Wax

You have undoubtedly already heard that Brangelina and their infant Shiloh have been immortalized in wax for Madame Tussauds. It’s been covered at Defamer and Just Jared among many other places. Though I always found the idea of wax figures to be more appropriate for horror films than tourist giggles, I was finally dragged to M. Tussauds a couple of years ago by a visiting friend. I will admit that I did get my share of tourist giggles out of sitting next to Madonna on a park bench, gazing up at a very impressive RuPaul, flipping off George Bush, etcetera.

But I still think it’s creepy.

What’s bothering me most about this latest publicity coup for the already ubiquitously public duo, is the lack of their other children. I’m betting that if I were an adopted child or a proud adoptive parent I would be even more horrified and angry right now. They don’t have one child, they have three! It’s the only case I can think of where MORE wax figures would ease my mind. What kind of message does this send out?



Ah well, Maddox and Zahara will still have plenty of opportunities to have fame thrust upon them.

Maddox and Zahara better get used to it, because they are sloppy seconds from here on out as far as the media is concerned. (At least Angie and Brad still love them just as much as their newborn -- presumably.) It's a pity.

but why did brangelina agree to it for just one of their children?

At least they made Jolie look normal. Pitt looks hopped up on pills and insomnia.

Maddox is still MY favorite celebrity offspring.

Yeah, the Brad Pitt figure totally doesn't look like Pitt.

But obviously the media is going to want more of their actual genetic spawn i.e. "the world's most beautiful baby" than the adopted ones. It makes sense, even if it is cruel.

Cultural bias at Madame Tussaud's noted. Madame Tussaud's museum in Times Square [New York, NY] has different wax figures than, for example, Madame Tussaud's in London. The UK branch has MAE WEST - - http://MaeWest.blogspot.com - - and the older movie stars but the Times Square museum has many more American sports figures. Is the "Angeline Jolie trinity" in the New York City wing?

"Maddox is still MY favorite celebrity offspring."

pfft, Apple has that crown so to herself.

Wax museums scare the bejesus outta me, quite frankly.
