(news.sawf.org) - What was expected to turn into a delicious catfight, didn't even cause slightest friction between two celebs, Madonna and Angelina Jolie.
Angie was quoted in Gala magazine as saying, with reference to Madonna's controversial adoption, "Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal." But she later attempted to downplay her earlier comments by claiming that her version of the conversation was misrepresented.
Jolie issued a statement on Monday (08Jan07) clarifying her statements to the French magazine, saying: "The article included many falsehoods. I said many positive things that were omitted."
Ironically, it was Jolie's boyfriend Brad Pitt who encouraged the pop diva and husband Guy Ritchie to adopt when the two couples dined together last year (06).
And now, Madge's longtime representative Liz Rosenberg has hit out at reports of friction, insisting there is no tension between her client and Jolie - who had herself adopted two children from Cambodia and Ethiopia - because of comments the actress made on Madonna's adoption of a 13-month-old Malawian baby David Banda.
"I doubt Madonna is aware of Angelina's comments, and I don't think Angelina said anything bad," Contactmusic quoted Rosenberg, as telling American publication Us Weekly.
"True, it might have been easier had Madonna adopted a child from another country, but Madonna doesn't shy away from things because they are difficult," she added.
