Jolie Joins Council on Foreign Relations

Jolie Joins Council on Foreign Relations

UN Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has joined forces with foreign policy organization Council on Foreign Relations, reports People.

Other members include: presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and journalist Tom Brokaw.

Vice president of communications at CFR Lisa Shields said, “Angelina Jolie is accomplished in her field and has demonstrated serious interest in issues such as Darfur, international education and refugees. As such, her profile fits very well with other young professionals we’ve selected as the next generation of foreign policy leaders.”

Jolie recently told Esquire in their June issue: “When I die, do I want to be remembered as an actress? No. I recently had a column published in a newspaper and at the end it didn’t say I was an actress. It said that I was a UN Goodwill Ambassador – that’s all. And I was really proud.”

    Thanks jared for the news. I’m delighted for Angelina. Good for her.

    When I saw some of the others in the Council, people whose names I recognised (I believe some the captains of industry are in the council and I don’t think they are particularly into foreign policy except insofar as it will help support the business interests of their company) I knew that she would get in.

    WOW!!! Thanks Just Jared. You are johnny on the spot. You know I am confused because I posted this twice in the same thread.
    Congrats to Angelina jolie on joining the Council on Foreign Relations. The council will get an honest, intelligent and curious member who will bring committment to world affairs and aid relief to refugees, children and orphans throughout the world. AJ is an amazing woman with drive, determination and the will to effect changes. BP is also a good human being who wants to bring about changes in the world. The two have influenced their peers as well as regular citizens to get involved and make a difference. From speaking on Capitol Hill, making trips for her UN duties and her charitable donations, AJ is more than an Actress but a leader of this generation. I wish BAMPZS all the best.
