Angelina Jolie Attends International Court's First Trial

Angelina Jolie Attends International Court's First Trial

Angelina Jolie watches the International Criminal Court’s landmark first trial on Thursday (August 25) in The Hague, Netherlands.

The 36-year-old actress, seated in the public gallery, was on hand for the trial of Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga, who is charged with using child soldiers during his country’s civil conflict.

“[This is] an extraordinary moment for international justice but more than that for children of the world,” Angelina said (via the Associated Press).

“It is quite striking to have a prosecutor from [the post-World War II Nuremberg trials] here today,” she added about American lawyer Benjamin Ferencz. “You see his clarity, his wisdom, his strength and his compassion for this situation which he has witnessed over the years and now he’s here to plead on behalf of these children in particular.”

Also pictured: Angelina‘s partner, Brad Pitt, filming more scenes for World War Z the same day in Glasgow, Scotland.

  • trt

    She’s always said that should there be a trial, she would be there. She always stays true to her word. That’s my gal, Angelina.

  • Rose

    As Brad had said in a recent interview, she is one of the most serious and mature woman he has ever met. just consider what she will be doing years from now. Angle is someone that I look up to and respect.

  • William Bradley&The Jolie

    First, this is just one of the myriad reasons that the hate cannot touch this woman. She has reached out into the world to help where she can. The world knows this woman and respects her. She is beyond hollywood. She functions in a sphere where the ignorant and unenlightened have no place.

    Now on a personal level.

    To you trolls:

    Yes, I admit I went over to IUC because I was curious to see if the fre
    aks were still there. And from that, you want to say I am not a fan?

    You are going to have to do better than that. Or are YOU afraid that the points I made and the information I requested will just make that bitter hag look like even more of a loser?

    Or make Brad even MORE OF A WINNER? And speaking of Brad, he is still a lucious speciman of a man. Now and forever.
    I am still interested in any info. from the informed fans. My original post is below:

    Happy B-day as well to the great PT!

    Just slightly OT, but I was wondering, since Universal’s site has NO release date for WanderBS (not even a January 2012 one), could this mean they may even quitely shelve it? I would love some insight from the truly film industry savvy fans.

    Also, something else I’ve been wondering about, esp., since those idiots at IUC seem to believe that Brad has money problems (some nitwit there is saying that he mortgaged his home to finance Plan B, and that the company is in the red from all of its films “losses” and that Curious Case of Ben B and IB made no profit). I remember that it was said that Brad was worth 200 million dollars at the time he divorced the X. I have always been under the impression the in addition to his income from film (salaried, producing, backend, ancillary), that there is also the value of Plan B (which I understand is in the 50-75 million range), plus his art collection, plus his residential properties. But in addition to all of that, I was under the impression that he also has investments in commercial properties, plus other investments as well. So, my rough estimate (guessing of course), is that Brad is more likely worth 300 plus million (not counting Angie’s money at all).

    Am I totally wrong about this? Just want to be armed with correct info when discussing my fave couple. And it’s always good to be able to knock down haters with facts and rational deduction. Thanks in advance for any feedback

    Okay, back to lurking.

  • Yoco

    ITA Angie is about following up on issues that are important to her. Also she is about” doing something” not just talking about doing something. As in the case of her writing and directing her film.I’m glad Brad and Angie are exposing their kids to some many cultures and some many important issues. When Brad wraps in the UK I think their next location will be a return to Budapest

  • laverdadduele

    I don’t buy her facade. All that “humanitarian” work is BS, she’s just trying to cover her many sins, cheater, drug addict, promiscuous, home-wrecker, to name a few. She even slept with her mom’s boyfriend, she’s trash.

  • thelookoflove1365

    Trolls are still here being delusional and fantasizing about break up… Nothing works for these trolls. Waiting in vain for the break that never happens. Theire talking points are old and stale. Basically posting the same shiiit, different day routine. Wash, rinse, repeat kinda cyle. Yawnnn-it’s boring me.

Actually…David’s subbing for Ticky cuz she’s preggers with octuplets, ya know. She’s trying to outdo the entire J-P brood in one fell swoop! BBBBWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Just Kidding…we all know that ho would have a meltdown if her belly ever looked like she’d ate her ab-cruncher excercise ball.

    Amazing Angie, she never tires of giving her time. You place is made in history already. She is an incredible person. All those who criticise or throw insults are filled with envy. Nothing you post here or on other sites can diminish the admiration we feel for this woman, so go ahead and post your craps. Angie is loved and admired by millions all over the world, you can’t stop that. She is blessed and God guides her. Gorgeous inside/out.

    Let me see if I have this correct – The dimwits at Mr. IUC cesspool are saying that Brad is broke ass and Plan B is the cause? Eh…that’s about what I’d expect from that bunch of losers. If Brad was so hard up for money he wouldn’t keep making small films like Cogan’s Bluff and Moneyball with an occasionaly WWZ $20MIL+backend payday thrown in. He’d be doing a Johnny Depp and signing on to one $20MIL+ payday after another. Tell ‘em not to worry – Brad can still afford franks and beans for the his family – and all of Africa, too. Morons.

  • NAN

    Hi Jen,I missed all of you too,but I cannot post here from the net at my house Norman’s friends blocked me,they hate that i called them Norman’s friends,but they must working for Norman’s mommy.
    I’ve to used computer some where else,
    Thank you Jen,I wish all the best things to you and your family too.
    Hi to all JPs fans .

  • Richard P

    Proud my girl Angie

    I love her so much

  • William Bradley&The Jolie

    To PT #43,

    I hadn’t thought of it that way, but, of course, your’re right. Oh my lord, I would never post there. Certainly don’t normally lurk there, but curiosity did get the better of me earlier in the week. And that was the latest nonsense being pushed.

    I still think Brad’s net worth has got to be closer to 300 mil, given the variables I mentioned..

    Also, would love to get your thought’s on Universal’s site only listing WanderBS as “coming soon” , not even a January release date. I just think something is up, and its not good for the hag.

    Thanks for your answer if you have the time.

    Well, back to lurk

  • MJ

    @GO AWAY: Are you talking about Anuston right? because she’s the one who did not get any script yet that’s why her PR GAY Huvane made an excuse that she will be off of work for a year but the truth is, there’s no offer for her. Remember GAMBIT, one of her few movies that she’s been singing it 2 or 3 years ago, now it turn out it was not for her, Cameron Diaz got the role because she can open it better than Anuston. Don’t worry about Angie cause she has talent, she can write a script, can direct and produce a good movie if she wants to. Now, go away and start worrying about Anuston cause her days are limited in the movie industry, poor thing.

    =========

    You don’t believe the crap you just posted because if you did, you will not be here and you won’t be stalking Angie, you will be spending your precious time on your idol’s thread instead. Can’t help yourself, Angie owns you Lol.

  • Goopy

    @William Bradley&The Jolie:

    No … you are right!! Brad is easily worth 1/2 a billion. He has enormous commercial real estate holdings as well as his personal residential plots. TCOBB and IB absolutely made money. His deal on IN was “first money”. He also had 4% of first money on “TROY” and 20% of EVERYTHING on MAMS. His deals for the Ocean’s movies will bring in bucks forever and MAMS is just a cash cow still. Now AJ has these kind of deals probably thanks to Brad so her earnings are off the charts too. Never, ever believe one of those Forbes lists. The are smelly, bad baby barf.

    If Brad were hurting for money he could sell out tomorrow. He is in constant demand and AJ too. The reason Brad can do what he likes is that his finances are quite secure and he would never, ever jeopardize that.

  • Lucky Charm

    Once again our gal has popped up at an important cause/event. She has way more important things to do and worry about than to use her celebrity status to pump up her ego as so many of her fellow actresses do. No wonder she is so well respected by so many around the world in government, royalty and just regular people alike. And the suntanning/clubbing/having the best bikini bod actreses are just viewed as Hollyweird airheads who are only concerned with themselves and their celebrity status.

    Beauty fades, looks change with age, but the character within will always shine through. And Angelina is shining brightly.
