    Angie is doing good things around the world & still being criticize. What did she do to the haters? Please, give her a break, her tireless effort, going from one camp of refugees to another is something to be applauded off, she is giving UNHCR a big boost to the world by herself. I wouldn’t know about UNHCR if I am not a fan of Angie. Please donate to a good cause, so many people will benefit from it.

    Exceptional woman. Conscientious & considerate.

    Wearing understatement dull black clothing only brings more attention to the exquisite beauty of her face. That’s her natural adornment.

    Beautiful Angie has got what it takes for the whole world to love her discounting a small few of no importance who gossip dirty about everybody in HW who do well. I say to you silly fat hens fungoo .

    Angie and Brad are the perfect couple and knew right from the start they liked each other and had a lot in common.. Brad on his way out the door long before Angie came along saw an angel the day Angie walked into the studio early , professional as always and prepared to do her role as Mrs. Smith.
    From day one all of their fun competing with one another turned into Fate. They both wanted large families , both were single at the end of that yr and fate was always in the background awaiting their final decision to say Lets Do It. You and Me baby . You can’t fight that kind of love .

    That was 2005 and it’s soon going to be 2013. KUDOS!! it’s been 8 yrs of bliss for Brad Pitt and The Jolie with their adorable family of 6.

    Brad and Angie are both AList actors, highest paid , both are producers, directors and every yr their movies get better and better. Award season is a busy time these two AListers always need heavy security at any and all events and cause the loudest noises from their millions of Fans all over the world..= most popular= polarizing forces, powerful like we have never seen before.
    Talk about looking good …WHOAAA!!! The JP’s take over every premiere without even trying. They are the hotttest sexiest most gorgeous stars of the world.. Without a doubt.

    They are the Glamour of Hollywood at its best…8 long yrs of it waiting to be grandparents one day .

    As for Angies big heart and 10 or more yrs of giving to the poor and down trodden. Angie is an Angel. Bless this women we need so many more like her but so far there is only one humanitarian actress like Angie . What would we do without her. She is an inspiration, a mentor and to top it off the most beautful women in the world.

    Congrats ANGIE WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!! You and Brad are delicious together.

    thank you to all the men and women who try and make our world a better place and for mankind. For those who lost their country, home, families or loved ones–prayers and sorrow for you. For those who respond to hate, I pray especially for you so you may see through the manipulation tactics of hate and do not respond in violence. To those who incite violence and hate, every religion has its extremists
    –you are no different and you have blood and evil on your hands.
    Thank you Angelina …and Brad, for all you do around the globe. Both of them show what a person can do if they choose to use their celebrity for good and not be self-absorbed like some.
    . I hope the fans are right and Angie is expecting child number 7. Didn’t Brad always say he would like 6 or 7 kids?

    Sherry -
    I noticed her boobs, too, but I don’t think Angie’s preggers. She supposedly going to make a movie with Luc Besson in the early part of next year. In the black caftan her boobs looked the same as usual. I just think it was the bra she was wearing. Besides, like Angie once said about herself re: her not needing that much padding for her LCTR DDDs, “I’m NOT flat-chested.”

    So… four threads this week, one for each photo op with our Lady of Homewrecking Hors promoting her favorite cause: herself. It was so easy to breeze through the comments as 95% of them were comprised of the usual drivel from resident horshippers: bashing of the ex and blessings for the demon and her absentee baby daddy.

    The hor of Babyloon goes out on a 2-hour photo op with her hired paps in tow and loons think she’s already saved the world and stopped wars? LMAO. What’s next? Turning water into wine? I’m pretty sure you loons actually believe she capable of doing it, seeing how you already think the most valuable asset the UN has. Har har.

    Sheep, you really have no clue. We all know that her fauxmanitarian works are nothing but a pathetic attempt to erase her disturbing past, but she’ll always fail. Actual humanitarians will spend long periods of time over those regions and won’t go there wearing make-up or having cameras following them. It’s clear that Heroina only wants to raise her profile again since she has a movie coming out and she her “promise for the future” ring did not spark enough interest from the public and media.

    BTW, why isn’t she wearing the ring in these pics? Does she feel guilty about rocking a blood diamond in a war-torn country? Nah, loons, she’s already taken… or didn’t you know that she can’t marry Pothead because she’s already engaged to Satan?

    How strange …Heroina was 27 years old when she made that statement and yet loons consider her an experimental child at that age. I suppose that is why they dismiss her idiotic faux pas of recent times as well. I personally blame it on her mental illness i.e. her chicken leg episode…along with the rest of the world…

    You never got answer from loons about that, isn’t that right Mega?? You’re absolutely right though, loons continue to excuse her as an “experimental child” when she was already an adult. I’ve never heard of anyone in their late 20s who got involved in self-harming and dangerous sex practices without eventually acknowledging their mental problems.

    I think Mrs. Bonkers’ refuses to seek help about her fragile mental state (hence her new nickname) because she thinks doing so will hurt her career. She won’t have to worry about it for much longer though. Her career is heading back to the gutter where it was back in 2004 before she got a second wind from having an affair with Pothead and ruining his marriage! >D

    Botox is the least subtle of the procedures she’s been through. You can tell that she can’t even frown. Nicole Kidman got a lot of crap for it. Now that the old ho has a frozen face, she can’t expect many job offers. The studios don’t like when actors can’t show emotion.

    Angie is a true angel. She has given so much as millions of monetary donations and service to the refugees and kids who have no one else to turn to. Her overwhelming compassion and concern for them touches me so much. The world needs more people like her.

    Angelina’s thought process:
    ”Nobody could POSSIBLY say anythiing bad about me now,with this newest stunt! yess.”

  20. 120
    Abby Says:

    I don’t see how some people could say anything bad and derogatory about people like Angie who gives so much of herself to helping others that have absolutely nothing and no one to help them and making sure that their needs are taken care of and not left to die. Not to mention the risks she takes whenever she goes to these war torn countries.
    For those who thrives on seeing fault and flaws in others, that is a sign of insecurity and immaturity. Remember that what you say about others reveals what you really are. They will never find peace, true happiness and contentment life.

    She’s not the only celebrity doing this. And she ain’t no saint, so stfu with your “we thank God for you..” crap. She may care about the blight of refugees, but at the end of the day she returns to her private jet and heads back to her mansion.

    True…she’s not the only celeb doing this BUT she is one of the most, if not THE MOST dedicated celeb in the humanitarian field. So if we fans want to show our appreciation and support , who are you to tell us to STFU? In fact I would say you should be the one to STFU and go elsewhere if you find Angie and her fans annoying. Be gone!!!!!

    Jolie listens to plight of Syria refugees

    ANKARA: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie said Thursday that Syrian refugees were deeply worried about the plight of their families back home as she visited a Turkish camp on the border with the war-torn nation.
    “They are very very emotional and very deeply saddened by the situation in Syria and very concerned about their family and friends in their country,” said Jolie, a UN special envoy.
    “Our thoughts are with them and with the Turkish people and we are very grateful to you,” she said, also praising the Ankara government for funding “such extraordinary camps.”
    Jolie, accompanied by UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres, met some of the 12,000 refugees at the Oncupinar camp, which lies outside the southeastern city of Kilis on the Syrian border.
    The Oscar-winning actress said she listened to the stories of the refugees who have fled Syria, where a brutal conflict that began as a peaceful uprising against the Damascus regime has now killed around 27,000 people, according to activists.
    Jolie was also briefed by Turkish officials at Oncupinar on conditions at the country’s border camps which altogether shelter some 80,000 registered refugees, according to the Anatolia news agency.
    “I would be a happy man if we would be able to provide to all the refugees in the world the same kind of conditions that generously the Turkish government is providing here in Kilis camp to the Syrian refugees,” Guterres told reporters.
    Jolie also travelled to another camp in nearby Gaziantep city and is due in Ankara for talks with Turkish officials, including President Abdullah Gul.
    On Tuesday, Jolie visited a refugee camp in Jordan where she appealed to the world to “do everything they can to support these refugees” fleeing the escalating conflict in their country.
    Ankara has called for safe zones to protect people on Syrian soil, but the proposal fell on deaf ears at a UN Security Council meeting last month. (AFP)
