Angelina Jolie Talks Foreign Relations

Angelina Jolie is being admitted to become a member of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations. Angelina, 31, will soon be rubbing elbows with other club members of the exclusive, Manhattan-based foreign-policy group including Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, and Alan Greenspan.

International-affairs professor Dr. Gordon Adams says “Bring her on. The idea of having Henry Kissinger and Angelina Jolie in the same organization is dazzling.”

    Says who? As a UN Foreign officer, I can honestly say that we do not look for exact fits, and most importantly, the first criteria in appointing someone is that they believe in what they work in.

    Great news! this is another prove that Angelina is mentally and physically fit person.

  • lylian

    Congratulations to Angelina. Wow. It’s hard to believe she is only 31 and has achieved so much.

    I note that she DID NOT apply for the job. Someone nominated her and she was accepted/invited to join the club. I wonder if Colin Powell or Condi Rice nominated and seconded her??

    ANGELINA JOLIE
    Joins egghead policy group.February 25, 2007 — The prestigious Council on Foreign Relations is about to get a jolt of sex appeal.

    The exclusive, Manhattan-based foreign-policy group has decided to admit actress Angelina Jolie, a U.N. goodwill ambassador who has taken more than 30 trips worldwide to advocate for refugees, AIDS orphans and disaster victims.

    On Friday night, the council’s membership accepted Jolie’s nomination – meaning she will soon be rubbing elbows with other club members such as Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell and Alan Greenspan.

    The group requires no academic credentials but looks for members who take part in world affairs.

    Many current members call Jolie qualified and support her induction.

    “Bring her on,” said Dr. Gordon Adams, an international-affairs professor. “The idea of having Henry Kissinger and Angelina Jolie in the same organization is dazzling.”

    Member Carol Adelman, former head of U.S. foreign-aid programs, said, “It’s not like Paris Hilton is being nominated.”

  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith

    Congratulations Angie, good to see your work being recognized by the people who respect you. I’m proud to be a fan.

  • Besane

    Fantastic, congratulations Ange! You haters are so pathetic, when is the last time you did anything charitable in HER scale? Do you donate 1/3 of your income? Then sit back and enjoy MISS Tangerine flashing her sagging boobs and filing PR lawsuit.

  • Silver

    Another example of the degradation of our country, a person with no family values or morals as a UN Foreign Officer. And the UN wonders why few people give credibility to their efforts? Is the UN that desperate for volunteers? This is like asking a fur trapper to volunteer with PETA.

    Angie is the most remarkable woman in her generation. She is example for us instead hate her, take lesson from her.Angie is our hero.

  • NOT A U.N. GROUP

    NOT A U.N. BODY GROUP!

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an influential and independent, nonpartisan foreign policy membership organization founded in 1921 and based at 58 East 68th Street (corner Park Avenue) in New York City, with an additional office in Washington, D.C. It publishes the respected bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs. It has an extensive website, featuring links to its “think tank”, The David Rockefeller Studies Program, other programs and projects, publications, history, biographies of notable directors and other board members, corporate members, and press releases.[1]

  • oh my

    All – the Council on Foreign Relations has nothing to do with the United Nations. It is the think tank that puts out that very difficult to ready Foreign Affairs academic journals on foreign issues.

    Check it out.

    Jolie is not mentions. Anf for you family values people – Jolie does more to help the US’s image than any of the current administration.

    Congratulations to Angelina. That’s a Hustler

    Angelina got the product, narcotics for customers homey

  • Jude

    I second that….this is a great addition of the human (the other only human is Alan Greenspan) to the list of the names….improves the odd of humanity previaling and balance to the thick skulls populating that group. If education and experience are the criteria then what do you say about G. W. Bush!! Failure of both?!!! Go Angie…..you are a TRUE American!!

    Now THIS is Karma. She’s kept her goals in sight and her charitable nature is sincere. She is now among champions, she doesn’t need a drummed up godess circle

    Thanks Jared for the new thread. That is AWESOME news for Angie and well deserved. I am so proud of her and double glad to be a fan of hers. She is not only beautiful, but also an intelligent, incredible, loving, caring and giving woman. Way to go Angie.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith

    GO GO ANGELINA. I don’t give a damn what any hater says today. You can call her all the names you want, still won’t change the fact that she is a respected and important member of our society. You can’t take away the smile on my face or the pride I feel being a fan of Angelina Jolie.

  • nameless

    HEY SILVER: YOU ARE A LOAD YOUR MOTHER SHOULD HAVE SWALLOWED.

  • hey hey

    I am such a huge fan of Angelina made even huger by this latest honor bestowed upon her. Can you hear all the screaming at the ocean and all those heads exploding from sheer envy? No matter how they try to pull her down, Angelina Jolie always manages to come out on top, looking as lovely as ever. Go girl (sniff! tears of joy) I am so very very proud of you!

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Angelina is an example of what all young actresses should want to be, Life is so much more than making a couple movies and going to a lot of party’s. Show some purpose, do something positive with your time. get on your grind, stay busy. Damn what guy wouldn’t want be with a chick like that.

    People Hate when your doing well.

    “The more money you make the more problems you have, Jealousy an Envy just come with the territory”.

  • Mediterranean

    This is the another proof that Angelina is above Hollywood, entertaiment business (and its requirements like nose, breast jobs, nonsense gossips, hateful wishes and curses by stupid fans, obsessive idiots).

    Angelina is bowed with all respect. She is accepted and respected by serious and important, intelligent people.

    P.S. I do have a problem to be connected to JJ, it is getting on my nerves and I can’t do anything about it.

    Is this a pic from the new Sisheido ads?

  • Just asking

    Good news!!!! Are you sure the NYPost can be relied upon with this excellent news?

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared for the new thread. It is good to read positive information about AJ. AJ has been involved with her UN work for many years. She has been a goodwill ambassador for the UN and has projected a positive image for the United States aboard as well as home. Too many times, people rather focus on her past or her relationship with BP, rather than all the great work she has done with the UN. AJ is an inspiration to many. She has shown that not all of Hollywood is fool’s gold, scandals and free swag.
    Many people outside the tabloid world, have shown much respect and admiration for BP and AJ. I wish BAMZS all the best. It is good to see that they are having a peaceful and relaxing time in the Big Easy, NAWLINS or New Orleans for the rest of the world.
    Peace to all.

  • em

    Angelina Jolie as a member of The Council on Foreign Relations will bring more attention to a lot of global issues, problems and humanitarian causes. The CFR is non partisan and Angie’s inclusion is based largely I think on how she defined being the UNHCR ambssador the last few years. She may not have the fancy Phd to her name but her knowledge of world affairs is from actual experiences she has encountered from war/tribal torn countries . She is more qualified than the other members of CFR who may not even seen one refugee camp in their lifetime.

  • JoliePitt

    GO ANGELINA JOLIE! Congratulations on your success at such an early age. What more can you ask for??? Angelina is young, oscar winner, gorgeous, well respected by many and a wonderful mom to her kids!!! I don’t care what the haters are saying about her as she is ALWAYS well respected, true inspiration and admired by me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gussie

    Quite an honour.

    This is a very influential think-tank.

  • Observer

    I would like to agree with those who don’t think she’s qualified to belong to the group.

    On the other hand, if all said about this thing is true, I guess whoever nominated her like the fact that she’s been personally to all those third world countries, the fact about her adoptions, and the money she’s been giving out to her cause. Of course, there are others who give, too, but perhaps the combination of what she has done and said is more useful of the cause.

    Then again, I don’t think she should be a member of that club. They could simply have decided to consult her if they wish to hear her opinion. Or, they should change the name of the club a little so she could fit in it better. “Foreign relations?” I think all she represents is a willingness to help the poor in the world and being an example of it. But “foreign relations” is much more complex than a single-minded purpose that she has.

  • Mediterranean

    Angie doesn’t have an university degree, master programme or PhD.

    She is out there and tries her best to do something good for humanbeings who need help. She is sincere about what she has been doing.

    I do respect her highly, I am proud of her.

  • Knowledge is Power

    While the Janice Mins and the Boonie Fullers of the world try to bring her down, Angelina Jolie’s star rises.

    GO ANGELINA JOLIE, PARTNER TO BRAD PITT AND MOTHER TO MADDOX, ZAHARA AND SHILOH

    You’ve done very well for yourself and your fans are proud of you.

  • piper, with a low

    Manhatten-based should’ve been a clue, suckers!!

    Unlike appointments in Washington, this wasn’t based on ‘crony-ism’ or past campaign contributions.

    Congrats to Angelina. Recognition for cumulative achievement rocks!

  • Observer

    #35, em. I agree, though, that she does have important first-hand experience that some others in the club may never going to have.

    You are an example of the degradation in your country. A person who can read and write but cant engage in the minimum research to find out simple facts. The council of Foreign relations is an american organisation.

    Here is wikipedia’s reference. Think you can read up about it??

    of course, this is like asking a bigot to be fair.

    well this is great news, her good efforts are definitely paying off. I wish her and her family luck.

    What a surprise to open the site and our “queen” is right there. :)

  • Knowledge is Power

    The group has decided to let her in, surely THEY know the qualifications and the requirements. They obviously believe she has something to offer and all this sideline critics need to SHUT IT.

    While other stars are in and out of rehab
    Angelina Focuses on a worthy cause.
    GO ANGELINA JOLIE.
    You make us proud.

  • Cutie

    Congrats to Angelina on this wonderful news…….in comparison to your peers you have accomplish so much and have found your true colors through your work with UNHCR. For those that disagree with her tactics you are still captivated by what she is able to accomplish. GO ANGELINA!
