Angelina Jolie Helps Launch Fight Against Rape

Angelina Jolie Helps Launch Fight Against Rape

Angelina Jolie shakes hands with Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague on Tuesday (May 29) at the Foreign Commonwealth Office in London, England.

The 36-year-old actress helped launch an initiative that aims to combat and prevent sexual violence overseas by drawing “on the skills of doctors, lawyers, police, psychologists, forensic experts and experts in the care and protection of victims and witnesses.”

The launch event featured a screening of Angelina‘s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which centers around the Bosnian war.

“It is in the context of war and conflict that sexual violence is found to the most appalling degree, and on a scale most of us cannot imagine,” William said in a statement. “[It] is an issue which is central to conflict prevention and to peace building worldwide.”

AJ is such an overachiever! stop making the rest of us look bad. jk! i’m always amazed at how she finds the time to do all this humanitarian work. she has a big heart. if only more women looked at her as a role model, instead of Kim Kardashian or Snooki.

She reminds me of Jacky Warner from bravo’s workout show. spitting image.

very nice to see her. she looks so pretty. Love her smile, and her dedication to these causes. I like that her film is and will play such a role in helping women that have suffered rape and other abuse.

BRAVO Angie.. always making a difference.

She looks happy, healthy and beautiful!

Now this is how it is done. For those whom have plenty much is expected. She is the only one outside of perhaps Bono, who really gets that. BTW, love the dress and she looks gorgeous……..in the midst of birthday parties and shooting a complex film….here she is looking like she had absolutely nothing else going on. Wow.

Then there’s the vain, insecure, shallow and useless slug………the Sad Spook.

Thanks for the link. While WhamPon is here talking to her alter Angie’s out doing her thing and driving WhamPon further over the cliff. I think it pisses the trolls off even more that so many important people in powerful positions take Angie and the work she does very seriously. Angie’s changing people’s lives. WhamPon can’t even change her own diapers.

I think she is a good person because of her PR, in every single blog of hers you see the same comments loaded with information of the positive things magazines write about her. I say she is so in love with herself that she’ll do anything to get raves from critics and fans. She is not genuine.

@Beth:

uuuuh are you blind?

@fyi:
Beautiful Angie, beautiful ring.

Thanks bdj and fyi for bringing these lovely pics here! So proud of Angie, her cast and the UK.

Gorgeous Mrs. Brad Pitt.

She looks decent 4 once @ 05/29/2012 at 3:47 pm

I’m surprised and happy to see her look decent. It’s been a long time.

Please forget my chicken leg @ 05/29/2012 at 3:48 pm

Well now we can forget about her chicken leg episode. She is a fake and her true self came out in the Oscars making her the laughing stock of the century.

LOL chicken leg @ 05/29/2012 at 3:50 pm

OMG the Chicken Leg exposure will never go away LOL

@Please forget my chicken leg:

you mean when she was self-deprecating and goofy? when she decided to have fun with herself? sorry to break it to you but no one cares about the oscar leg thing anymore except the haters who are desperate and cling onto anything they possibly can to bring angelina down.
