Angelina Jolie is Back in Iraq

Angelina Jolie is Back in Iraq

Angelina Jolie laughs with an internally displaced boy at a makeshift camp northwest of Baghdad, Iraq, on Thursday (July 23).

The 34-year-old UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency) Goodwill Ambassador was on a day trip in Iraq to bring attention to the plight of displaced people within the country (approximately 3 million) and outside of Iraq (approximately 1.5 million). She spent time with four families who were displaced from Abu Ghraib.

This is the third time that Angie has visited the war-torn country. She spoke to the locals, saying, “”I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation. We hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq.”

  • Not impressed by JA

    So proud of her ! She has guts and substance : she is the real deal !

  • karenina

    ew. she looks older and older

  • lol

    makes me laugh this homewrecker trying to be a saint now

  • Not impressed by JA

    Others would have sh*tted in their pants, crying like a baby just in the plane en route to Irak.
    .
    This lady is grounded, gutsy, intellectual and real. She could take all that time to bulk up and pamper hersef, she chose to feed her intellect instead while going to dangerous places for her humanitarian work.

  • karenina

    and skinnier

  • http://www.newslicious.net newslicious.net

    u’re amazing Angelina

  • karenina

    @lol: lol i agree

  • little muffing face efron

    @lol: Angelina was doing this stuff before she ever met the cheater douche called Brad Pitt.

  • yikes

    SKELETOR !!!

  • ah

    Ewww!! Skeletor is back!

  • little muffing face efron

    Btw, brad Pitt is the one trying to look like a saint after he dumped whats her face. was he doing anything of importance before that? Nothing like what he’s doing now. Angelina has been an Ambassador since early 2001 when Brad was nothin but a shiityyy actor.

  • troll

    I’d like to take this small break from trolling and say, ….she’s a pretty decent person I have to admit.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Others cry over a single gray hair, consume gigolos and talks all ganster in mag while they could not even bring their b*tt in an african-american neighbourhood in their own homecountry cause they are coward, racist and professional whiner.

  • awwwwww

    Angelina Jolie is a legend and she is truly inspiring.

  • an oldie

    I am proud of her for bringing awareness to the plight of refugees. Keep going, Angelina.

  • Lisa

    Angelina is such an amazing person and a good example of an exceptional human being.
    I still am in awe as to why people compare her to Jennifer Aniston.
    Why they hate on Angelina simply because she is with Brad.

    Once again let’s just speak the truth.
    Brad left Jennifer on his own free will.
    Jennifer didn’t wan’t a family, she wanted a movie career.
    All Jennifer’s movies will never get her an Oscar.
    Angelina Already has won an Oscar and has been nominated on several occasions.
    Angelina most Powerful Celebrity noted By FORBES 2009
    UNHCR Amabassador – Angelina
    Jennifer Aniston – Ambassador of “Smart Water”
    Angelina Is sexy, Jennifer tries to be sexy
    Angelina is with Brad, Jennifer is not. Get over it.
    Men won’t stay with Jennifer and the minute rumors start about a fling the male actors quickly defuse the situation citing they are just friends.
    Angelina – Sexy womanly features
    Jennifer – Jaw structure like a man
    Jennifer is over 40 and still single, can’t keep a man
    Angelina – Life Partner Brad Pitt and 6 children
    Jennfier doesn’t want the press to talk about the whole love triangle and every time she is interviewed she talks about the situation and how much she is hurt. In her words “That was not cool.”

    Sorry people but the truth is in the facts.

    Angelina and Brad reign supreme over Jennifer and her rumormill boyfriends

  • Nessa

    Wow just wow such a great and caring person.

    I heard she will be honored in Jordan by their Quenn for her charity works in this week. Talk about power sure she has it.

    No wonder she has so many haters. Beautiful , successful , caring , kind , mother and rich. no wonder to that. Keep up the good work Angie.

  • neer

    Indeed, she is really an amazing woman!!!
    .
    Those who criticize her are just jealous that she can do what they couldn’t….that is, she has the heart to be really of service to the displaced people.
    .
    Some people can’t take it when she is admired by her efforts. They want to undermine her goodness & always find color or negativity in everything she does.
    .
    Are some people can be so bad that any form of kindness with pure intention is criticized?? It is so sad that they cannot believe the goodness of the heart of others.

  • Pinkrose

    Rock on Angelina. Love your family

  • Irish Girl

    Where’s the hijab?

  • Besane

    karenina, I know it’s so tempting to be jealous of Angelina, but give it a rest. She is doing something good for people in Iraq you nor Jennifer Aniston will never, ever do.

  • Wendy

    She looks VERY unhealthy, and her body is just unattractive at this point, but i still love her, and love what she is doing.

  • mimilala

    Whatever the motives, I think Angelina’s work is beautiful and courageous.

    On a superficial level, she is aging FAST! Her face is looking rough.

  • guli

    Thanks Jared!

    What an amazing, intelligent, caring woman…she’s admirable!!!

  • Um

    I AGREE NUMBER 22!!!!
    YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE MARK!!!!

  • neer

    Angelina Jolie is a unique kind of human being.
    .
    That’s why we admire her because she’s beyond ordinary person doing those things successfully- FAMILY MATTERS, HUMANITARIAN WORK & CAREER LIFE.
    .
    It’s very rare that a person can balance these very well. In addtion to that, she is very gorgeous & attractive lady even in her simplicity. Despite her popularity & fame, we can never see any air of arrogance in her. She always comes across as humble person.
    .
    Her rarity is truly an inspiration.

  • Besane

    @mimilala: Angelina is wearing no makeup under a TV camera. Tell me which actress can dare do that and look this good. Oh and certainly not you.

  • mimilala

    Oh and the little Iraqi boy in the 5th pic is beautiful…

  • mimilala

    I wasn’t looking at the video Besane, but at the pics…and there are LOTS of women Angelina’s age that don’t wear makeup and don’t look as rough at her age.

  • val

    See she is in Iraq, not Jordan…LOL! The tabs lie once again and this is what the trolls believe. Angie is a legend, I pray that she continues to go on and make a difference in the world. Brad lucked out when he met and became involved with her. Her inner beauty far outweighs her outer beauty, this is what true beauty truly is.

  • Hater to the left

    I think she’s aging just fine considering all the work she’s done. here’s a pic of Charlize Theron who is younger http://cdn.okmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/fp_3301213_theron_charlize_.jpg

  • an oldie

    LOL, nothing to criticize, so we are back to “she’s so skinny”. That’s why we are fans of different movie stars. Some of us like nice clothes, great hair, hot bod. Others admire someone with gut, heart and soul, and with natural beauty to boost. We don’t have to agree, or to share. Let’s just be happy with who we are fans of.
    I admire Angelina for walking her talks. The world is a better place thanks to people like you, Angelina and Brad.

  • !!!!!!!!!!

    ewwwwwwwwww she looks old, she looks older than jennifer aniston and she’s younger.

  • omg

    I am speechless. I am awe of her the one and the only Angelina Jolie.

  • fresh

    She’s brave.

  • Gagstastic

    The question is, can these people speak English? Bcoz I can’t help wandering when did Angelina became multilingual, bcoz she always comes back and tell the WHOLE story of every refugee she’s met! Some of these displaced people are not even educated, let alone know one word in another language besides their native tongue.

  • Hater to the left

    @!!!!!!!!!!: Jennifer can’t move her face. but here’s what she looked like 4 years ago… http://i44.tinypic.com/mjxr2h.jpg … looked a lot older didn’t she?

  • Pinkrose

    Jon and hailey + baby bailey @ 07/23/2009 at 12:45 pm is this girl supposed to be somebody important? she makes movies for a living. wow.

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT!! WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING DOES NOT MAKE YOU WHO YOU ARE. IT’S WHAT YOU CONTRIBUTE TO THE REST OF SOCIETY / HUMANITY THAT MAKES YOU WHO YOU ARE!!

    ——-
    Don’t advertise your stupidity! She is a goodwill ambassador, doing her job.

  • digest this

    Her looks is not the theme of the work she’s doing. She lokks like she’s supposed to look on the field working with refugees. Keep up the good works. I know you won’t be distracted!

    30 year old Kate hudson. I can go on and on but I’m sure it won’t matter because you hold Angelina to some super standard just because she’s with botoxed Brad Pitt… your hero. Bleck!

  • Estelle

    Thank you Jared. She’s an amazing, loving and beautiful person inside and out. She has done something that many politicians are unable to do, that is to bring positive image of USA to the worlds.

    Pathetic trolls, the changing name to agree with yourself again is so 5 years ago old….barffff!

  • hmm

    This is what Brad is deeply in love with —- Angie’s unmeasurable inner beauty and her outer beauty is a plus.

  • Celebritywatcher

    I am worried about the twins health.
