Women Love Angelina 

AfterEllen reports in this week's edition of Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. that among female respondents to a poll asking with which celebrity they'd be most likely to cheat on their boyfriend, the number one celebrity was Angelina Jolie (57%), followed by Brad Pitt (54%). Oddly enough, Britney spears tied for number three at 23%. I share columnist Sara Warn's stunned reaction to the Britney choice, but I'm not at all surprised by Angelina. Okay, I'm a little surprised, since this poll was aimed at straight women.

But then again, the poll was a Playboy reader poll, so I'm not sure the actual audience is full of straight women. And a number of the "female" respondents may been men answering with the celebrity they'd most like to watch their girlfriends cheating with. And then inviting the boyfriend to join in. Ugh.

Let's just stick with the results on the face of it - America loves Angelina. Hopefully this will result in more people listening to her statements on behalf of the UNHCR. That would make it all worth it.
