Ellen DeGeneres and Angelina Jolie Team Up after Matt Lauer Truce?

In addition to all the new TV shows that day time talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is now producing, the Emmy award winning comedienne is also said have a new movie all about transgender kids in the works as well. According to the latest gossip news update, Brad Pitt's activist wife, Angelina Jolie, who is said to have a transgender child of her own in Shiloh/John, was so moved by the project she begged Portia de Rossi's wife to let her help on the film. Angie just wants to make sure she doesn't get on DeGeneres bad side. After all, she set Today show host Matt Lauer up to donate $16,000 to charity after first calling a truce to the current prank war.

While Ellen DeGeneres already seems to have her hands full enough with all the producing ventures coupled with her own highly-successful talk show, she still has time enough to spare for one more project close to her heart.

Its being reported in the May 11, issue of Life & Style that Ellen has signed on as executive producer on a film about transgender children that has since caught the eye of longtime Hollywood sex-symbol, Angelina Jolie.

A source close to the United Nations ambassador explained that once the Unbroken director got her hands on the script she couldn't help but feel like she must be a part of the making of this new movie:

"Angie has signed on as the main consultant on the film.

"She heard about it, called Ellen, read the script and literally volunteered, right there on the spot."

According to the informant, the new movie is going to be Angie's way of letting all her kids know that it is okay to be themselves:

"Angelina wants to show her own children that people shouldn't hide their true selves and should revel in their own individuality...no matter what path they decide to go down."

Truly even more impressive is DeGeneres ability to wage a war of charitable pranks against Today show host, Matt Lauer, on top of everything else she's got going on at the moment.

At the Emmys last weekend Ellen played an especially hysterical and costly prank on Matt Lauer when she seemed to proffer a truce in a pre-recorded segment for the award show, only to then have him next appear near-nude and promising the crowd thousand-dollar-bills for a shoutout (via Entertainment Online):

"Matt has generously offered to donate $1,000 of his own money to charity any time one of y'all thank Matt Lauer in your speech tonight."

A total of 16 different stars went on to thank Matt that night, prusumably costing him a pretty penny, but the early morning stud turned the tables on Ellen with a tweet that made her just as responsible for coming up with the cash as he was:

Unable to let Matt get one up on her even for a second, Ellen has since declared that there is no way she'd be caught dead giving such a paltry sum to the needy (via ET): 

"Matt asked me to match his donation, which I am not going to do.

"I'm going to beat him and donate $16,001."

Makes you wonder if Angelina isn't second guessing the sanity in signing up to work with Ellen on anything.
