Angelina Jolie Is the Virgin Mary in A Controversial Painting

Angelina Jolie has been painted as the Virgin Mary in a painting titled "Blessed Art Thou," a line taken from the Catholic prayer.


Meet the "new Virgin Mary," Angelina Jolie. The action hero actress is the Virgin Mary in a controversial painting to be unveiled at a US art show Friday January 5th.

"Blessed Art Thou," the painting by Kate Kretz will picture Jolie as the Virgin Mary. The painting, moreover, also has the actress' three kids, with youngest daughter Shiloh being portrayed as the daughter of God, and elder kids Maddox and Zahara being shown as Angelina's cherubs.

Came up with the great idea, Kretz claims the painting is aimed to confront issues regarding celebrity worship in the first place. On why she chooses Jolie among the other female stars to be the subject of the painting, the artist says that's because of Jolie's unavoidable presence in the media, her "unattainable" beauty, all her charity work, as well as the media frenzy that accompanied the birth of baby Shiloh.

The painting goes on display at the Art Miami Fair at the Miami Beach Convention Centre. The fair will be a three-day affair that begins on January 5 and will close its doors to the public on January 8.
