Angelina Jolie: UNHCR Ceremony & Tribute!

Angelina Jolie: UNHCR Ceremony & Tribute!

Angelina Jolie attends a UNHCR ceremony honoring Yemeni humanitarian aid group Society for Humanitarian Solidarity on Monday (October 3) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The 36-year-old actress was also recognized for her 10 years as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

“I’m so grateful to the many refugee families that I have had the honor and privilege to spend the last years with. From them I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned to become a better person, a better mother,” Angelina said. “They’ve inspired me by showing me every day the unbreakable strength of the human spirit.”

Angie also called for help for refugees fleeing war-torn Somalia.

“We must not forget what is happening in this part of the world. We must not forget how desperate they are when the only alternative is to risk death at sea and put their lives in the hands of ruthless smugglers,” she told the crowd.

FYI: Angelina is wearing a white double face crepe 3/4 sleeve sheath from the Michael Kors Spring 2011 collection.

Check out a UNHCR tribute video for Angelina after the cut!

    Yahh gorgeous as a doll

  • David

    i can see how she genuinely cares about the causes she supports. you get the sense that a lot of celebs just do charity work or support causes because they want to add it to their resume to build a good image of themself in the media. i never get that feeling from angelina though, she’s very smart and very invested in her charity work.

  • Jaye

    The JP Nation spoke, and Jared heard.
    Hi Fans!
    Jolie is an inspiration to all of us. She doesn’t have to invent a life, she lives it to the fullest everyday. I love her independence, her drive and her compassion for others.

  • A very unique woman…

    There are so many adjectives for her… smart, beautiful, courageous, talented, compassionate, sexy, generous, kind, adventurous, …

  • African Girl

    Lovely woman, inside and out.
    I love how AJ always deflects the praises bestowed on her by giving credit to others. Some people would stand there, preening like they did everything on their own.

  • ironic

    While I admire Angelina’s commitment to these issues, I find it ironic that she herself looks malnourished and not as healthy and well-fed as the people she is speaking for.

  • bermy girl

    She is genuine and I respect her for the choices she’s made and the way she has decided to live her life.

  • Rose

    Angle, you are inspiration. You help so many underprivileged people all around the world. You are loved by your family and fans. No amount of negative comments will take that away. Brad loves you so much that is the reason for small minded people to loose their minds when they see how much he loves you. Keep rising for the stars, your fans will always support you.

  • Another Fan

    Great to see Angie being recognized and honored for her great work!!

  • people should not be mean

    Angelina in a kind, giving woman, and people should not be making mean comments about her looks. She’s just aging, and it’s not her fault. WIth age we get bony and veiny. Get over it.

  • lurker

    God Bless you beautifull…..amazing lady….thanks Jared,

  • busted

  • queen bee

    ..Watching the montage moves me….Brad is sooo freakin lucky to have found her…and he’s not so bad himself…(New Orleans is proud of him as well)…

    Off topic…here’s an adorable review of MoneyBall from two teen boys….they LOVED it!…and believe Brad should be nominated for an Oscar for Best actor as well as best Picture…

  • sonia0404

    Angie’s speech is so humble!!
    So glad to see this change of her life to soar up above the materialistic world and become someone so inspiring!!
    That’s how and why Brad doesn’t feel bored and dull!

    THis is the smartest thing EVER!!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    It sure took JJ a while to put up a new Angie thread. But it didn’t take him long to put up 2 new MANiston threads.

  • susan083

    Angie is vain or has a eating disorder, that’s why she is thin, she is n’t 80 years old, so it has nothing to do with age.

  • snickers

    She looks like her daughter Shiloh jolie-Pitt.

  • luvangie4ever

    A remarkably kind, intelligent, and talented woman. A true inspiration to women the world over. Being recognized for a decade of humanitarian work for the UNHCR is something no money can buy. And she takes her role as a Goodwill Ambassador very seriously, always doing what she can.

  • snickers

    @susan083: she actually looks really kind of healthier there.
