Angelina Jolie Does Charitable Work

Angelina Jolie Does Charitable Work

There was a supposed rift between Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman after Scotland’s Daily Record quoted Kidman as saying, “It’s not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital, but she’s getting the publicity for her contribution.”

Yesterday, The Daily Record admitted that Kidman never said those things about Angelina and apologized for “any upset caused.” Instead, Kidman‘s publicist, Catherine Olim did release a statement on behalf of Nicole Kidman:

Ms. Kidman has tremendous admiration for Angelina Jolie and her tireless, worldwide charitable work, as well as for the work of countless less well known volunteers in areas of need around the world.”

Pictures in this entry include Angelina Jolie driving around Los Angeles this past Friday, September 15. More pictures in the gallery!

    she looks like she’s thinking.

  • Patti

    Oh my God!! She’s so gorgeous!! Look at the way she sits in her car!! She’s amazing!! Damn that Kidman for saying anything bad about the Santa Angelina! Look at how she wears her sunglasses…I have to go out and get some. Anyone know the brand???

    Of couse this is all sarcastic!! Kidman still got her point across. Jolie is not the only person on earth that is trying to help the goodwill of mankind. She is human, not godlike! While I admire anyone who does charitable work, Jolie is very, very overrated!!

    Being under this kind of constant scrutiny has got to be exhausting. I don’t know about anybody else, but when I’m in my car I usually have the radio on or a cd going and I’m singing along. She can’t even do that. If she did, then the tab headlines would say, “Crazy Angelina Seen Talking To Herself!”

    It’s damned ridiculous. How many photos of other celebs do we see of them just driving down the street? The only 2 instances I can think of were Britney Spears and the only reason they photographed that was because she put her baby in danger! Angie can’t even pick her nose if she wants to!

  • CLINIQUA

    #6 (Patti) – My dear you missed the point. Kidman not only did NOT say any of that, she has very forcefully made the rag issue a retraction, and then praised Angelina up, down, and sideways — Angie and Brad are power players, as is evident by Nicole Kidman’s response to this lie (they are friends as I’ve been telling you guys – and as stated Nicole is a greatadmirer of AJ’s and has begun her own UN work herself)…no way did Nicole Kidman want that out there that she had even possibly dissed AJ.

    Man, if Nicole Kidman is so quick to clarify, how do people like the X, who are tv sit-com hacks feel if THEY are on AJ or Brad’s bad side. The X should be shaking in her pumps that’s all I can say.

    Also, does JJ have a new rule, once a new B&A thread is started the old one is closed…that kind of sucks, as I could look at the banksy photos all damn day. LOLOL

    The pics of AJ in her car (and she’s wearing white!! LOL) always make me laugh – because they in no way look like candids…they look like model shoots…check out that long graceful neck of hers.

    And that would overrated by whose standards – yours?
    Who cares who gets what publicity if in the end hospitals are getting built, food and other essentials are delivered in problem areas, etc. Just look at Namibia – the tourist industry there is booming after her giving birth there. She must have created a few hundreds jobs for the locals. In fact has she not been a celebrity her charitable work would not have produced the same results – so attention goes hand with hand with good results from this kind of work unfortunately.
    I am sure the people who have benefited so far from Angeina’s celebrity status all over the world, would find your comments completely irrelevant and unfair..
    Hi, everybody – by the way this is the 1st time I am posting here, although I have been checking from time to time. I am Eastern European but live in the Middle East – comes to show that people like Angelina have the widest following all over the world!

    Hi Kat, welcome and please post here! Would love to hear about things in the Middle East. What part / country are you in?

    Patti…what on earth is your problem? Over-rated? There is no one on the planet today who comes remotely close to this young woman when it comes to giving of herself to promote humanitarian causes. You are a no nothing meany, you are just wrong, and really, really annoying. Could you go somewhere else, please?

    Hi Kat,i am from east Europe too and i totally agree with you that people like Angelina are inspiration for people all over the world.

  • smozan

    WHY would such environmentally conscious people as Brad & Angie drive gas-guzzlers everywhere? It boggles my mind.

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    #12…that isn’t Doug Pitt. Nor does he look like Brad. Yuk.

  • fiona8

    I noticed Angie had short nails in those pics. But the night before at the art gallery, her nails are quite long, must be wearing fake nails. which could mean she must have come from a photoshoot or whatever meeting before she met up with Brad for the art gallery thing, hence she was with holly and all dressed up.

  • Amaya

    #12 Personally, I don’t think that’s Doug. I’ve seen a pic of him with Brad and that guy is a fake.

    #13 Addicted to BAMZS et al – thanks!
    I live in Dubai, UAE. Have been here for the past 8 years.
    Until a year ago I didnt know much about Angelina Jolie – it was when the whole love triangle thing started when I got curious then started reading more about her, her life and what she does.
    Well the result – I went to Africa for 3 weeks a month ago – Madagascar. I went with a group of volunteers building houses for poor families. Me – the 30-something, corporate career-, high-heel and make up woman! My friends and family were shocked.
    I guess we all need just a little nudge and inspiration in the right direction!

  • freidaflo

    Nice Pics of our AJ.
    Thanks JJ and Audrey . Good morning to all!!
    Yeah , deep in her thoughts.
    One must remember , AJ takes care of 3 small kids , worries about a sick mom and thinking about a lot of things.
    Please give her a break.!!!
    Took a min. break and here I am posting. BYE>

  • gitane

    good morning, everybody!

    PT i agree with you. there’s no way i could hold up under such scrutiny. i sing, dance and eat in my car. and i’ve got terrible road rage. the papps would have such crazy pics of me to circulate! i’d make britney spears look refined! but angie, as always looks lovely. any guesses about what she could possibly be thinking about while she’s stuck in traffic? i’m usually thinking “who’s the friggin’ jerk that’s holding everything up? i’ve got places to go and people to see, dammit!”

  • rowena

    #24 sara!i know what you mean darling,but you know what?even the tips of the bamzs fingers,im happy to see them…

  • D

    Don’t get me wrong I think that Angelinas humanitarian work is great BUT do u guys praise people that have been doing this kind of work for ages constantly or have u just made AJ a saint ’cause she’s got the good looks..??

  • TapTap

    I think Olim’s statement on behalf of Nicole is well phrased. There are many people that do humanitarian work and receive nor recognition at all. They give of their time and work without recompense of any sort in dangerous and difficult situations. It must be remembered that Angelina gets recognition and publicity for her charitable work and this generates public goodwill which in turn generates additional revenues at the box office. There are real saints out there and despite what fans may think, Angelina is not among them.

  • Dancer

    #6 Patti–
    Did you read the article. Nicole Kidman is one of the classiest folks around and I knew the minute I read the alleged comments that she either didn’t make them or they had been taken totally out of context. Now the paper says she did not make them; they made them up. Nicole and Brad are friends and have a deep admiration for each other’s acting ability. Furthermore, Nicole has said previously how much she respects Angelina (when she got her to visit Dylan, the Aussie child with cancer at the hospital). We are so quick to judge. As are the bloggers, papers and mags. These folks are under tremendous pressure with everyone watching their every mood. Maybe it is time we all cut a them a break when we see obviously misquoted, made up, ridiculous stories.

  • Kat

    I personally have not made AJ a saint. Trying to look at things in the most sensible way. Why do singers/golfers/tennis players/movies stars make millions of dollars? Coz they are more useful to society than firefighters and nurses? Of course appearance is one of the factors that determines somebody’s influence on today’s society. Again – doesn’t change the fact that AJ gets the work done – the people who’ve benefited from her work wouldn’t care less what made her famous and enabled her to do charitable work. That’s all that matters!

  • Cindy

    Angelina looks amazingly gorgeous as usual. – on the subject of being overrated or not here are some of the things Angelina had done and show me a Hollywood figure who at the age of thirty something who has done such a notable thing in her/his life:
    Angelina created a loving home to two children from the most unprivileged backgrounds;
    She donates one third of her income to charity; Donated over 1 million dollars of her own money to build a children’s’ hospital in Ethiopia, She is a spokesperson for refugees around the world etc etc etc….need I say more..

    BEAUTIFUL!!!…
    …good am BAMZS fans,hope il find friends here.it’s my third post but i kinda sad coz you guy seems sooo close.hope il be in ur circle too.im an asian,been six months here in the US…i was visiting this thread long time ago but the comment of one of the haters last time tempt me to answer her back…remember the racist girl who said that only asians,black people,europian…etc….adored angelina?twas a most disgusting comment i ever read.
    anyway i read about elena’s tragedy…please send my condolence to her.we may not know each other personally but my prayers is w/ her.

    ———————————–

    Yeah, that always works with the movie going public – become a charitable philanthropist and that assures you big box office. NOT.

    You’re an idiot and you need to shut up.

    No one here is saying Angelina is a ‘saint,’ we recognize however she is a highly influential well-meaning good-hearted person interested in those less fortunate than herself, and she walks the walk. Nicole Kidman in her rush to clarify, and deny the lying tabloids agrees.

    The post that Jared put up – was done for one reason only, it’s the latest ‘news item’ on Angelina (having to do with LIES that some rag attributed to Nicole Kidman).

    Nicole has denied ever having made the remarks, and has praised Angelina and given her respect and admiration. That is the reason for the new thread.

    Geez, but your comprehension skills suck. The part of the article you say Olim “phrased well,” is THE LIE that she is earnestly refuting. Wake up blockhead!

    Are people getting dumber or what?!

  • gitane

    32 | D

    let me explain. for the thousandth time. nobody that i know of who posts on this blog thinks angelina is a saint, and if they do, they shouldn’t. she’s a human being with faults and flaws like every homo sapien roaming the planet. nor do we think she is the wicked she-devil that she’s been labeled. she’s a good person doing good things and living a fascinating life while she’s at it. the only people who’ve labeled her a saint are the posters who come here and try to call us on “idol worship.”

    the facts are simple. angelina jolie is a great humanitarian. she gives of her time, energy and money. there are pictures of her here. we look at the pictures. we post and speculate about her work, her life, her character. so if you come to a place where her pictures are up, you can expect that people are going to talk about HER. there are occasions where we mention bill gates, matt damon, bono, nicole kidman and any other celebrity that supports a worthy cause, but this ain’t their thread.

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in India
    By IndiaFM News Bureau,
    September 19, 2006 – 05:24 IST

    The film adaptation of Mariane Pearl’s A Mighty Heart, who is the wife of American Journalist Daniel Pearl, is going to be shot in India. Angelina Jolie who will be playing the role of Mariane, will be in India on October 1, along with boyfriend Brad Pitt and their three kids. The hottest Hollywood couple along with their kids will be in Pune for a month or so, for the shoot.

    The film also stars Irfan Khan and Aly Khan who play important characters in the film.
    ———————–

    So the whole brood will be in India on Oct. 1

  • CLINIQUA

    I meant to add — I hope they are fine as fans in India can get crazy. I was at the TIFF premiere of a Bollywood film starring two of the biggest stars in India, and it was a madhouse. Though the crowd was not as huge as Brad’s — it was huge nonetheless, and they were loud and screaming and pushing….it was a bit nerve rattling. I would love to see Zahara & Angie in little saris — maybe they’ll go to a few functions eh?

    Kat…welcome aboard! I think we have another lurker who lives in Dubai, but I can’t remember who it is right now. And one of our regulars – African Girl – has a cousin who lives there, too. So it looks like Dubai is representin’!

    i’ve asked this question before, but i’ve never gotten an answer. i’d really like to know why, if you’re not a fan of angelina jolie, why do you bother to visit a thread with her pictures and read comments made by her fans? i don’t want to judge you. i want to understand.

  • Passing Through

    any guesses about what she could possibly be thinking about while she’s stuck in traffic? i’m usually thinking “who’s the friggin’ jerk that’s holding everything up? i’ve got places to go and people to see, dammit!”

    +++++++

    You and me, both. Everybody is my family has got a notorious lead foot. Just this morning I was driving to work and the speed limit was 50 and the jerk in front of me was doing about 40! I was like, “Get the hell off the road, moron! WTF is the matter with you! I don’t wanna go to work, but if I hafta go, I don’t want to take an effin’ hour to get there when it’s only 7 miles!”

    I read an interview last year with IRL Indy race car driver Danica Patrick and the interviewer asked her if she how she drove off-track and she said, “I have road rage. EVERY. DAY.” I don’t drive fast cars for a living and I have road rage every day, too!

  • CLINIQUA

    Jared – is that the new rule, as one thread gets opened another gets locked?

    I’m unable to even reference back to the banksy photos to LOOK at them, let alone post — because when I use the search function it doesn’t pull up the ‘more banksy love’ thread at all. It’s like that entire thread – 12 pages, beautiful pics and all has just been flushed!! What gives???

    This kind of sucks.

    No offense on this thread – the pics of AJ in the car are nice, but so are the other 597 photos where she’s looking the exact same beautiful way driving in her car.

    Just a suggestion, perhaps a new photo – a banksy shot or just something that we have not seen 1000 times would be cool to start a new thread with.

    I hate to criticize, but it seems like the pics prior to banksy were more of the same – Ange out driving.

    (while this board oddly enough, was on a Maniston roll…horror of horrors)
