Glenn's Awkwardly Beautiful Encounter With Angelina Jolie

He really shouldn't be let out in public --- or allowed to mingle with celebrities.

Today from Los Angeles, Glenn recounted a rather awkward encounter with actress Angelina Jolie while walking the halls at Netflix, admiring a painting of Frank Underwood from House of Cards.

"We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it," Co-host Stu Burguiere said after hearing the uncomfortable retelling.

"It's just bad. It's so bad," Glenn said.

Only in Hollywood . . . and only with Glenn Beck.

GLENN: I was at Netflix yesterday, and I'm going in -- it's an absolutely beautiful studio, and it's the only -- I'm trying to remember the old Bronson studios where they used to shoot Gunsmoke and every --

STU: Perfect strangers.

GLENN: Did they used to shoot perfect strangers there?

PAT: That's a Bronson kind of reference.

STU: Bronson show.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Oh, okay. So anyway --

STU: Wait, people didn't get that immediately? I can't believe it.

GLENN: I know. It's a good reference. It's like my Chitty Chitty Bang Bang references that people don't get.

STU: Except it was a great show with Mark Baker.

GLENN: I got it. I got it. So anyway, I go inside, and it's this beautiful, beautiful amazing brand-new building on the lot, and so I walk in, and I'm going back past security, and I'm going back into some of the offices, and I'm walking down this really long pure white hallway. And at the end is this amazing painting of Frank Underwood. Okay? And he's sitting -- I don't even know if they've used this before. I don't know if I've seen it before. But it's this beautiful painting of Frank sitting in the Abraham Lincoln chair from the Lincoln memorial. Have you seen that?

STU: I don't know if you had. It's the president of "House of Cards," the Netflix show; right?

GLENN: Yes. So he's sitting in this chair, and it's this -- I don't know. Six foot painting, and it's spectacular. So I'm walking down the hallway with Tyler, who works with me, and we're walking down the hallway and Tyler has, you know, some artistic sensibilities in him as well. And so we're getting toward the end of the hallway, and I've just been admiring this quietly for most of the hallway, and then I start talking about the painting. And I'm, like, man, that is beautiful, and I'm saying it loud because we're alone, inning, in the hallway. And I said that is beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic. And as I say fantastic and Tyler says "Yeah; right? I know." I begin to turn in the hallway, and both of us at the same time, our eyes drift down past the Frank hands and the Frank face because it's a gigantic painting, and we start to scan down the painting at the same time and there standing right in front of the painting that we hadn't noticed the whole time is Angelina Jolie.

STU: Like, the real person?

GLENN: The real person.

STU: Not a picture of Angelina Jolie.

GLENN: Actual Angelina Jolie, and so she's looking at us as we are looking just above her head at the painting, and I'm, like, that's beautiful, huh? Look at that.

[Laughter]

Fantastic. And I turn, and I'm, like, "Oh, dear god." Flump.

STU: Did you get a restraining order yet?

GLENN: Not yet. So I walk into this meeting, and the first thing they said was "Did you meet Angelina?"

And I was, like, I didn't, no. She was in the hall. I didn't notice. What are you talking about?

[Laughter]

Beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic.

STU: Did it really fit -- like did you think that she thought you were talking about her?

GLENN: I have no idea. I just -- I just immediately looked away because my thought when I saw her was "Beautiful. Fantastic. Look at that."

[Laughter]

STU: Oh, no. Oh, no. You really shouldn't be allowed out.

GLENN: I should not. You should not let me talk to celebrities or see celebrities or talk to anybody. I just --

STU: We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it.

GLENN: It's just bad. It's so bad. Beautiful.@

And, you know, the bad thing is if she knew I was talking about the painting, she would be, like, what the hell's wrong with me? I'm chop liver? You're looking at the painting?

STU: Looking at a painting of Kevin Spacey?

GLENN: It was weird because the way it was in the hallway and the stark white and the black and white painting of this. It was really stunning. But she was -- it was a very dark painting, and she's wearing all black, and so it looked like, you know, when you first saw her, I mean -- I don't know how we missed her head. It was, like, her head was, like, right in the center of his, you know, chest or something just floating there. I don't know how we didn't see it. You're seeing up on the feed today. That's not the picture, the one that's being shown on the -- that's not the picture. The one that's on The Blaze TV.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: It's of him sitting in the chair from Abraham Lincoln, the one in the Lincoln memorial.

STU: That sounds pretty amazing.

GLENN: Yeah, it was -- it was not as nice as Angelina Jolie.

STU: No. Not even a bit close, I would think.

GLENN: No. She looked beautiful.

STU: I'm sure she did. I know what she does.

GLENN: Yeah. You know how some people -- you know how some people look different than they do on TV?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Like, me, I look much, much fatter.

STU: On which one? TV or not TV?

GLENN: It's just the same.

But anyway, she looked exactly like she does in the movies. She was beautiful, so I just thought I would throw that in.

STU: That's a good thing to be able to pull off. If you can pull that off, that's pretty impressive.

GLENN: Yeah, I did think about turning around and going so I hear you're single now, huh?

STU: No, you didn't. Please don't tell me that.

[Laughter]

Did you get at least any teases on what's coming up on the next season of "House of Cards"? Did you get any information out of this meeting at all?

GLENN: No. But I did play fan boy a little bit on Daredevil.

STU: Oh, right.

GLENN: And I said come on, man. Did you guys cancel daredevil? Or is it coming back? And I don't know if I can say it. I don't know if they've released it. But I know. And you don't.

STU: Well, Netflix, good luck with hiding that information for the next week.

[Laughter]

JEFFY: I would go ahead and release that now.

STU: It's time to get out in front of that story, whatever it is.

GLENN: Beautiful, huh?

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
