Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt: Damascus Duo

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt visit two Iraqi families in the Jaramana district of southern Damascus (the Syrian capital) on Friday (October 2).

The couple are calling attention to the the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi refugees who remain in exile. Angie shared, “Most Iraqi refugees cannot return to Iraq in view of the severe trauma they experienced there, the uncertainty linked to the coming Iraqi elections, the security issues and the lack of basic services. They will, therefore, be in need of continued support from the international community.”

After meeting with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and his wife, Asma al-Assad, Angie said, “It is clear that the Syrian people, no matter the challenges or difficulties they may face, have always shown generous hospitality to people in need. I hope that the rest of the world recognizes that we all have to share this burden and continue to take care of Iraqi refugees.”

    Brad and Angelina surface in Syria
    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were spotted today on the streets of Damascus’ old downtown, during a visit to Syria.
    Jolie, in her role as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, visited Iraqi refugees in the poorest suburbs of Damascus. She was welcomed into the homes of two Iraqi families in the Jaramana district during the visit, according to the UNHCR.
    The first family the star visited – mother, father and five children aged seven or under – were crammed into a squalid, stuffy one-room basement apartment with a tiny window. Most of their possessions, including mattresses, blankets and boxes of food, were provided by UNHCR.
    “It is clear that the Syrian people, no matter the challenges or difficulties they may face, have always shown generous hospitality to people in need. I hope that the rest of the world recognizes that we all have to share this burden and continue to take care of Iraqi refugeehttp://blogs.usatoday.com/entertainment/2009/10/brad-and-angelina-surface-in-syria-.html?csp=34s,” Jolie said after the meeting.

  • Silver

    Why is her face silver? At least she ditched that witch dress, but this is just as bad. The botox in her fivehead hides the bulgie vein, so that is something! There, I said something good about her!

  • Karen

    She says she is 34? More like 43!

  • Sabrina

    She’s such a great woman!

  • Oscar worthy

    Is this the concerned face? I can’t tell with all the botox in her giant forehead.

  • angie all the way

    angie sure knows how to dress elegantly and appropriately. She is admirable

  • Shakirakitten

    So wonderful. I wish all celebrities were less selfish and self centered and focused on world issues like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. They set a great example of a good life well lived.

  • mina

  • Dani

    Thanks for posting that. Its always good to hear when someone is trying to help others in this world. And to those with not nice things to say; go DO SOMETHING! Get off your butts and volunteer. At least Mrs. Jolie is doing something other then running her mouth, or worse, hiding behind a computer screen and typing mean things. Get a life. Mrs. Jolie has one, which she worked hard for!

  • playing the victim

    @Hate them!: Yeah you need to worship someone who spends their free time sunbathing and spending $50,000 a week on her hair , someone who epitomizes shallowness.

  • mmsic

    Memo to Hollywood; there is only one true Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.Any stars who want to be like them has to talk the talk and walk the walk.Both of them are so amazing,so caring and so loving.A lot of ugly ,jealous people want to take them down especially Angie,but she is unbelievable,she’s still on top and they will be for the rest of their life.May God continue to blessed them and to keep them from any harm.Love them both!!! PEACE

    She looks especially lovely in this pic. you can see that the children feel the good vibes coming from Angie. Children know when a good spirit is in their midst.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    she seriously looks like death. her hands are skin & bone.

  • M-

    She NEVER DOES anything though but make a statement and go home to her multi million dollar mansion in France

  • Lurker

    Please let’s keep this thread positive.Don’t respond to the trolls. They are here for one purpose, do not give them the satisfaction.

  • mmsic

    @marietta: thanks for posting more pictures.I notice Angie is walking behind Brad,i guess it’s customary over there.No matter,Brad and Angie are looking so handsome and so beautiful,respectively.Gosh,they’re still together,i’m shocked and the world is shocked!!! Tabloids,take note!!!

  • Yep

    @M-: That’s dam n right! Phony, phony, phony. Their whole lifestyle is not one to be admired. She does look like death in this pictures.

    BTW, why do these loonies bring up Jennifer Aniston every time? I personally c don’t give a shiat about her. I’ll will say that at least she doesn’t put on this fake BS. She is who she is, unlike these 2 dopes.

  • playing the victim

    @M-: Making a statement and bring attention to the issue is better than doing nothing but shopping and going back to your mansion. Wouldn’t you agree?

  • aeg

    @Silver: SHUT UP

  • milla
