Snatch star says condition has 'knocked me for six and made me reassess my life and goals'

DVD: Wanted, Retail & Rental, (Universal)

'Wanted' is the Hollywood debut of Russian director Timur Bekmambetov, and it's much like his previous films – ie, flashy, but with no coherent story. James McAvoy, with an impressive six-pack and a less impressive American accent, plays an accountant who is told by Angelina Jolie that he's the world's deadliest assassin. He joins her in a band of killers who have their targets chosen for them by the "Loom of Fate". The Sewing Machine of Destiny would have made more sense.

Sex doctor: The look of love - what we see in people

As someone who specialises in sex and relationships, I've spent a great deal of my life pondering exactly what is it that makes one person attractive, and another not. Looks clearly play a part but even the extraordinarily beautiful aren't to everyone's taste (Angelina Jolie being a case in point: a goddess to some and "lips like a fish" to others). Besides, we all know good looks wear off after the third date or two hours into the first meeting, if you're particularly bright and they're exceedingly dreary.

Susannah Frankel: Ready To Wear

Fashion issue of the week: where on earth did Angelina Jolie get "that nightie"? I love Angelina Jolie. Despite her best efforts to be humdrum, to fit in with us mere mortals, she positively radiates superstardom. She's not averse to stepping out in a tent of a dress, pregnant or otherwise, and preferably a grey one, and still she upstages anyone else in their glittering finery on the red carpet. She attempts to downplay any physical beauty, taking on serious, even political roles. A better-than-average performance as Mariane Pearl in A Mighty Heart aside – much red-eyed, red-nosed screaming and gnashing of teeth required – she still looked like the resident supermodel. The reviews at the time labelled her screen presence "overpowering", not entirely unfairly. But Angelina Jolie just can't help it. The weirdest thing of all? She does actually look like Mariane Pearl – like a hyper-real Mariane Pearl, the living, breathing Hollywood ideal. Marvellous.
