Angelina Jolie Visits HALO Trust's Global Headquarters

Angelina Jolie meets with Guy Willoughby, co-founder and director of the HALO Trust, at the organization’s global headquarters in Scotland on Sunday (August 21).

The meeting marked the 36-year-old actress’ first visit to the headquarters, and she and Guy talked about current landmine problems at a briefing.

Angelina and partner Brad Pitt are longtime supporters of the HALO Trust, which funds humanitarian mine clearance teams in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Kosovo, and Afghanistan.

    Wonderful organisation and so proud that Angie and Brad support this very worthy cause.

  • BA+6

    Always learn something new about Angie. Another organisation to support in my book.

  • Free

    Good work Angelina.

  • sia

    wonderful!

  • JPs Always Amaze

    Good for her- yes, the JP Foundation is a big supporter of HALO. It’s unfortunate that such organization even has to exist- why do humans keep killing each other?? Both she & Brad could just sit around and do nothing but go clubbing, party, and vacation, but they choose to raise a big, gorgeous family, help others, and make some great entertainment, too- very proud to be a JP fan!!

    This is why I admire Angie so much. She’s might not be “working” in films right now but she is working for her causes. Landmines have not been in the news since Princess Diana died, and Heather Mills ain’t exactly the world’s favorite spokesperson. I am so glad that Angie is picking up the slack.

  • lurking

    Angie always helping. Love this woman. I am sure she has Croatia project of demining in her mind.

  • French Girl

    Wonderful Lady, i don’t know where she finds this tireless energy ! I really admire her. She is incredible ! and she supports it for long time but this organisation doesn’t tell anything about it, haters :)

  • quentin carmicheal

    she sure knows her priorities. her family, her causes and then her career. no need to sacrifice anything. she knows what’s most important in her life and she knows how to balance it all.

  • Another Fan

    Continue to be impressed by the commitment of this amazing lady! In Croatia one day discussing landmine problems with its president, a couple days later visiting HALO’s Scotland headquarters and being briefed by its director!

  • brange fan from greece

    the most unselfish woman in the world, that’s angelina jolie.

  • teri

    I agree with the previous comments at how dedicated Angelina and Brad continue to be. Such an amazing couple with so much love in their hearts for people in need around the world.

  • brange fan from greece

  • Brad Loves Angie

    wow- she does so much- no wonder Brad is so in love & Angie is so in love back!! It was fun looking at those 2008 pictures of Angie at the JPs Malibu last night- thanks to those who posted them!! Yes, I heard the reports about Will & Jada, too…the only “source” I could find, though, is Jezebel via IT, so who knows…

    Will And Jada Pinkett Smith Reportedly Separate

    In Touch is reporting that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith will separate after 13 years of marriage. If this is true, it means that Scientology really can’t fix everything. But also, this is very sad. Also also, who gets to stay in their truly lovely home? [In Touch]

  • Ivana

    shes an amazin person

  • brange fan from greece

    angie is so compassionate willing to sacrifice for her family and people in need.i salute you angie.i will always be your fan no matter what.you just don’t know how i really admire you.i can’t just admire other actress the way i admire you .continue to be just the way you are.

  • anustin

  • brange fan from greece

    saw some pics of in the land of blood and honey.so excited.now angie as director.though i much prefer to watch her on screen thatn behind the camera.i really miss her on the big screen.

  • briseis

    @Brad Loves Angie: If true, another A-list marriage that the tabs have missed reporting on weekly because these bottom feeders were always up Brad and Angie’s behind. It’s so funny, the troubles are always with Brad and Angie, as per the tabs, while JLo and MA, and now Will and Jada (if true), also high profile, the tabs knew nothing about? No wonder the tabs keep losing money … who buys them anymore?

  • vickifromtexas

    lovely and inspirational lady. she and brad are a wonderful pair.

  • Lara

    Please visit the website and considering making a donation. I have already added this to my list of organisations to support, thanks to the J-Ps bringing them to my attention, like so many other causes.

  • brange fan from greece

    wow,jennifer garner is pregnant again.good for her .i really like her a little.she is also very simple and seems to be low maintainance which is very rare in hollywood.doesn’t care what people say about how she dresses etc.but when you see se her in red carpet she can give jlo (who dresses like a trashy) a run for her money.i can see why ben choses her over jlo.ben will not leave this woman for a high maintainance jlo.i saw their picture before, ben is really not into jlo.garner and ben also make beautiful babies.

    some people are just pitiful. wishing it doesn’t make it so. brad and angelina are a family not a “see where this thing goes” merger. please get a hobby. you are wasting your time. hoping that parents of six small children break up says so much about your character.

  • Appletini

    Wow, almost two full pages and only two troll comments! They must finally realize that there IS NO going back for Brad & that everyone loves Brad & Angie.

  • http://N/A Marcus From PA

    So cute- they do such cool & romantic things together :)

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie left staff at the National Trust for Scotland’s Hill House property speechless yesterday after turning up for a surprise tour of the property. The mega famous Hollywood couple, who are in Scotland to allow Brad to shoot scenes for his zombie movie World War Z, arrived for a private tour which had been booked for 10 people.

    But rather than the expected group of sightseers and holidaymakers, the movie stars appeared instead. Brad is a huge fan of Charles Rennie Macintosh’s work and had been very keen to return to Hill House after a previous visit 15 years ago.

    Delighted staff managed to keep their cool and showed the couple round the beautiful NTS property and its grounds on Monday (August 22), which was built for Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie between 1902 and 1904.

    Lorna Hepburn, the National Trust for Scotland’s manager at Hill House, said: “Mr Pitt explained that he had previously visited Hill House 15 years ago and that he was a big fan of Charles Rennie Macintosh. He had been waiting for an opportunity to return ever since.

    “Both he and Angelina were both extremely relaxed and friendly and clearly very interested and knowledgeable. They were particularly taken with the decor of the world-famous master bedroom.”

    Lorna added: “We treated them with the same courtesy we would extend to any visitor and let them enjoy their tour without intrusion or interruption.

    “After they had gone, we all felt exhausted but so grateful to realise that Scotland’s Hill House remains so renowned and appreciated from Helensburgh to Hollywood.”

    Video above: Brad, Angelina and their six children arrive in Glasgow last week.
