Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, the woman initially responsible for breaking up Sandra Bullock and Jesse James when her affair with James went public, is comparing herself to someone major: Angelina Jolie.
In a video shared by RadarOnline, McGee discussed her similarities with Jolie, primarily that both of them were involved in scandals and negative press–but Jolie turned that around and became a philanthropic, caring mom. “Being a woman that’s been involved in a cheating scandal; she took all those negatives and turned it into something really good,” McGee said about Jolie. “I’m going to try to make the world a better place. I think what Angelina Jolie has done is great. She’s such an awesome humanitarian and teh work that she’s done is amazing…I think she’s a great role model to follow.”
Apparently McGee plans to spin her bad media attention into an opportunity to make a difference. “I’m going to use the media coverage that I’m getting for a positive thing,” McGee said. “I look up to her [Jolie] and I hope to follow what she’s done and help people and use this media and use the limelight and take this mistake that I’ve made and flip it and turn it into something good.”
Well, it seems Jolie is a good example to more than just kids–she’s turning around other adults, too.
