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.

  • lurker

  • Beth

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

  • busted

    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.

  • Sam

    She looks happy, healthy and beautiful!

  • dawne

    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…… 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.

  • Another celeb

    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.

  • Jen


    uuuuh are you blind?

  • awwww

    Beautiful Angie, beautiful ring.

  • Another Fan

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

  • Carly

    Gorgeous Mrs. Brad Pitt.

  • She looks decent 4 once

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

  • Please forget my chicken leg

    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.

  • She looks decent 4 once
  • LOL chicken leg

    OMG the Chicken Leg exposure will never go away LOL

  • Jen

    @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.

  • Boy

    She is pretty, too bad she’s got a tribal mouth and laughable Legs.

  • anustin

    proud loony my azz is.

  • Lara

    Thanks Jared for the thread.
    Angie looks amazing and is such a wonderful inspiration, what a lady!

  • bwhahahah rotflmao

    @Boy: did anyone ever ask brad about his anorexic fetish?

  • Roy

    She is aging fast for a 37 Year old she looks more like 50, her skin looks pulled and her frame elderly, but she is still a Real Hooker with a Heart of Gold and Old

  • rochelle

    William Hague is one lucky bast4rd!!!!!!

  • bwhahahah rotflmao

    @Tart: did brad skip mini Angelina’s b-day? I thought he was all about being daddy. More like daddy dearest.

  • Esterin

    Angie looks so beautiful. I am so proud of being her fan. She is my inspiration.

  • Jen

    if sticking her leg out of a dress with a high slit, something everyone does, is the most embarrassing thing angelina has ever done then i’d say she’s okay. it’s not like she got caught with a prostitute (hugh grant) or got caught stealing from saks fifth avenue (winona ryder).

  • hehehe

    The trolls are jealous. hehehe

  • Jack

    It’s amazing what people can accomplish while on Heroine

  • Jen


    uh how exactly is screening the movie to a bunch of people involved in foreign policy going to help recoup the “losses”? do angelina haters have brains at all? it’s already out on dvd…

  • Kata


    It’s spelled heroin you idiot. Freudian slip, maybe? Because Angelina is a heroine.

  • bwhahahah rotflmao

    @Jack: she’s not on drugs. Pittstain starves her because he likes rubbing bones. She’s starved herself for that ring. Bwhahahah

  • bdj

    Nutty troll has nothing better to do. 15 cents a post is all she got.

    It is so wonderful to see beautiful Angelina! I have missed her. She’s not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside which shines through. She’s unique, no one looks like her and she looks like no one. She’s one of a kind, no one else comes close. She’s in a class of her own. There is so much to this beautiful woman, Angelina. I am so proud to be a fan.
