Angelina Jolie Takes Time Magazine

Angelina Jolie Takes Time Magazine

Angelina Jolie takes to Time Magazine to voice her case against Sudanese President Omar al Bashir, who has been indicted on seven counts of war crimes and five counts of crimes against humanity.

The 33-year-old refugee advocate writes, “Friday is a defining moment in the history of justice. The members of the United Nations Security Council will be presented with the results of the International Criminal Court’s Darfur investigation — an investigation that they requested. Their response will determine whether there is going to be an international standard of justice that holds perpetrators accountable for the worst crimes in the world.”

She continues, “Today the Security Council member states will be faced with a simple decision — to embrace impunity or to end it. As they are considering Bashir‘s fate they are also considering their own.”

    Hi to all JP fans.

    Am I the only one here??????

    I love this woman more and more.

    Angie, worrying about things that really matters…

  • bridget

    Gag. Go away Vampire Jolie

  • a total fan

    Films, children, a loving partner, charities and she still finds time ( no pun intended) to write.

  • jc

    Agree to #5. Also doubt she worries about her critics too much and takes childish insults from where they come from. I hope the article brings attention to a very important humanitarian issue.

  • http://justjared bermy girl

    A woman of substance and beauty. Go on girl and shine your light!

  • Besane

    What a formidable woman you are, Angelina. The ultimate antithesis of $50k hair Hollywood shallowness Brad left.

  • Claudia

    Yes, I love this woman!!!

  • cindy

    Truly deserving to be the #1 CELEBRITY. RICH, TALENTED, BEAUTIFUL and with a good heart.

  • Julie

    Other sites are all hyped over the fake breakup. They even mentioned that JJ is afraid to post about it. JJ posts all the things that AJ is REALLY worrying about, her job as humanity embassador. Good job JJ !!

  • pinkrose

    CREAM WILL ALWAYS RISE TO THE TOP. GO Angelina and God bless Brad and the kids too. The Pitt family is doing just fine and the asses at the bottom-feeding rags will have a long wait for the breakup. Brad is not leaving Angie, because she is the best thing that ever happened to him and Angie is not leaving Brad because she simply adores him. Angie never dreamed she could have this lifestyle…a loving family. Brad dreamed it but it seemed out of his reach for along time. These two recognize what they have found in each other.

  • christie

    She is sooooooooooooooo beautiful. God bless her and family.

  • KEARNIE

    Thanks Jared man….

    I like this Angelina of 2009. Where every medium in the Hollywood and media in general has been bashing her left and right, undermining her personal life, calling her this and that..what does she do?

    keep quiet and mind her own darn business
    Continue educating herself about world issues
    Continue taking care of her family
    Continue loving her man and his extended family
    Continue working
    Conitnue living under the radar

    The woman got her life priorities in place and no Jen, media, haters, or whats not is going to change the above.

    As time goes on, she is going to do more and more of these articles, next thing you know, she is the Chair of something and really in a position of making change and having an impact on the world at large and beyond the USA.

    This woman is going places. Get used to it, haters!!!

    P.S. The Huvane PR and negative press – if it didn’t break her 5 years ago in 2005, it sure wasn’t going to break her today. As a matter of fact, it made her EVEN BIGGER. So, thanks to Jennifer and her PR tactics….Angelina just got HUGE due to you. LOL

  • Rhonda

    This is so lame. The only POWER, jolie has is getting attention. Noone will remember anything she said an hour later.

  • F u g F a c e M a n ! s t o n

    i remember when angelina was a bisexual-self-harming-blood drinking-dope doing-incest’ing-slʊt. wow.. talk about switching up your style. LOL..

  • KEARNIE

    Besane – don’t get me started on that $50k. Here I am just putting that down on a house and someone spend it on hair and expect me to pony up $$$ for her. Take about Mismanagement of $$$.

    What’s next, travelling. Geez…Someone need to tell Jennifer Aniston, travelling is “travelling to Jordan, Morrocco, Namibia..NOT a movie”

    No wonder the changed the name from Travelling to A new day or something like that.

    You know why they changed the name to A whatever day??
    .
    Well, according to a recent article about independent films, Indies are doing quite well thanks to a different budget profile and the fact that they are often released on Video on Demand. It seems that on video on demand , movies with names starting with the letter “A” do better than those starting with a lower letter because people scroll down the list, usually starting from “A”.
    .
    So, I’m guessing that “a whatever day” is targetting itself for video on demand.

  • lulu

    Smart, and embody beauty inside and out , she deserve every ounce for being the world most powerful celebrity .

  • oknow

    Thanks Angie for being a voice for those that have theirs suppressed. You rock lady!

  • a total fan

    #17 Those that really care with what is going on in the world will remember an hour from now and longer.

  • aida leda

    Thanks JJ. This is worthwhile reading. I would never have known about it if not for AJ. So God bless AB and their fans.

  • GO AHEAD NO ONE CARES

    YES AND LOOK FOR THIS SAME BLOG NEXT YEAR SAME THING
    NOTHING THAT’S WHAT.. NOTHING WILL BE DONE FOR THE
    DISPLACED PEOPLE IN AFRICA ..UNLESS SHE DOES IT HERSELF
    SO USE YOUR FORBES #1 power list MONEY AND GET THOSE HOUSES IN GEAR. LIKE YOUR PARTNER BRAD DID FOR KATRINA
    BUILD SOME ECO FRIENDLY HOMES FOR THE HOMELESS AFRICANS..

    KEY IS TO DO IT YOURSELF!!! ANGIE AND SO WHAT AS IF THE US
    HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING WRONG..

  • alexanderina

    Thanks Jared for this new thread. So proud of Angie

    WTG Angie and this is why I love and admire this woman. She is truly amazing and inspiring and that is why she is the most powerful celebrity in the world, yes others think that Oprah should be No. 1 because she has more money etc but it is not all about money. Angie goes to places and does things that no other celebrities does including Oprah.

    Do we see Oprah going to the Congo, Darfur etc? No, she doesn’t. She may donate money to charities etc and have her school in South Africa but we don’t see her going to the places that Angie goes to and talking and interacting with the people and sometimes that is all these people need, someone to talk too and some one to listen to them and Angie does that and along with the other things that she does make her the most powerful celebrity and above all the rest. IMO

  • ok

    FINALLY a celebrity that uses her voice for a cause that really matters and not only to promote beauty products, fashion clothing and other frivolities.

  • deea

    the most shinning goddess of all times gets even bigger!we are lucky to be contemporary with her

  • lylian

    BTW, thanks jared for starting this new thread.
    .
    It is going to be interesting how Bashir is going to be dealt with over the next few months by the UN Security Council.
    .
    I wonder also how the failure to take strong measures against Bashir by the UN Security Council is going to affect Angelina’s own attitudes towards the UN, for whom she is an ambassador. I believe she is a pragmatist and probably sees, as many other do, including myself, that the UN, like democracy, though imperfect, is still the best system in existence at the moment. What other international organisation can replace it which won’t suffer from the same flaws as the UN today?
    .
    Still, it will be disappointing to all people if the UN Security council fails to take strong action against Bashir due to individual self interests. Somehow I just don’t see China wanting the UN to do anything against Sudan when it is looking for oil supply and minerals there.

  • mertz

    thanks jared. i wake up every day and go to time so thanks for the link. i hope she’s also on top with the tribunal reports thats going to come out about the hariri assassination. she’s totally right. the counsel should make not only the right decision, but also a decision for the victims, and africans who always get the back hand when it comes to their rights and justice matters. the counsel has a chance to come accross as being productive and not entirely hypocritical.

    I’m bringing over from the Birthday thread two of my on topic posts.
    .
    Kudos to Angelina for her determination in seeking justice for those victims on whose behalf she has worked these many years.
    .
    There are varied routes to gaining expertise in an area. Through Angelina’s eight years working in the field of international refugees she has received untold intensive briefings on the myriad issues involved from experts in those fields, academic sorts, government officials in the US and other countries, as well as, and perhaps most importantly from those living and working in the refugee camps around the world. She has participated in conferences, had one on one meetings with generals in the field, Secretaries of State and heads of state, and reportedly continuing communication on the issues.
    .
    Angelina has at least as much, if not more, expertise than most members of Congress have on the issue. On most of her working trips she is staffed and properly briefed beforehand. That briefing is not just a quick word to the ear either as it is for many voting members of Congress. As it also is for members of Congress, this issue is not her only focus. Only the uneducated or uninformed would dismiss the expertise she has gained from her work through the United Nations and other organizations. It is an entirely false premise that one can only gain expertise through a formal education at a university.
    .
    Perhaps most disappointing are those people who will criticize Angelina or her writings as a tool to gain attention for themselves. So far, I cannot see one reason why anyone would have a quarrel with her latest commentary in Time. And anyone who would dismiss and criticize Angelina’s op/ed pieces by discussing her personal life or celebrity status should themselves be rejected out of hand.

  • andamentothat

    thx Jared.. Greetings fans..

    Ange is in time magazine… now i guess that people magazine realizes how stupid they are for featuring Jon Gosselin and the other D listers when they could have genuine stories on real people..

    Another qn why are the tabloids not touching Mr Mad max???

  • KEARNIE

    Personally, I love the fact that since the Oscar, Angelina has not been seen alot other than on the set, has not done something or spoken/responded to anything to do with the entertainment media. It has been Associated Press at the Hague(re: International Court) and several articles in the Times magazine.

    All have nothing to do with the entertainment but her activism. Wonder if this a sign of things to come?

  • Not impressed by JA

    Jolie has more guts than countless of politicians in and outside the US. That’s why she is the most powerful celebrity in the world !

    Angie rules !
