Angelina Jolie Meets Syrian Refugee Children in Turkey

Angelina Jolie flashes her radiant smile while meeting with Syrian refugee children on the third leg of her solidarity tour for the UNHCR on Thursday (September 13) in Eastern Turkey.

The 37-year-old actress also met with refugees at the Oncupinar camp, the largest camp for Syrian refugees in Turkey, located in the city of Kilis.

“Syrians have a history of welcoming people in need,” Angelina said. “Now it is their hour of need and I am grateful to Turkey, and all the neighboring countries for their extraordinary generosity.”

Make sure to check out photos from the first and second legs of Angelina‘s tour.

    Brad Pitt – The hitman
    .
    The new Brad Pitt film, Killing Them Softly, is about a corrupt America. Emma Jones meets the king of cool to discuss the values he holds dear
    .
    EMMA JONES FRIDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2012
    .
    “I apologise,” says Brad Pitt. “I’m bad at this today, aren’t I?” Brad Pitt, movie star extraordinaire, 48-year-old father of six, and the world’s most famous bridegroom-to-be, is sorry. Sorry that he and Andrew Dominik, the director of their latest project, Killing Them Softly, went out and hit the town the night before press interviews for the movie. Pitt sits, immaculate in a three-piece suit the colour of cream cappuccino, nursing a coffee of the same colour and – presumably – a hangover.
    .
    Fortunately, as well as alcohol, Pitt still exudes cool out of every pore. He’s also relaxed, happy to fill the allotted time with anecdotes of the evening before – but given the calibre of the film, this would actually be a waste. Killing Them Softly is a nasty, engrossing thriller that Andrew Dominik adapted from a 1974 novel, Cogan’s Trade by George V Higgins. He transported it to 2008, to the global economic meltdown during the shift in power between Bush and Obama.
    .
    Pitt plays Cogan, a hitman who tries to do his job with minimum fuss to avoid the pleas and cries of his victims. Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini complete the cast of one of the most watchable mob films since 1995′s Casino, but one that carries the underlying message that the Mafia is the darkest realisation of the American Dream; and it is as subject as anything else to the laws of economics.
    .
    This is the second collaboration between Pitt and the New Zealand-born Dominik, after they made the award- winning but commercially underrated The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford in 2007. “Only about 12 people in the world saw that movie,” claims Pitt, but it’s still one of my favourite ever films. We were in the trenches in that film and you bond in a trench, so we wanted to work with each other again.“
    .
    He says he loves the character of Cogan, describing him as “the clean-up man. I put things back together when they need to be put back together. I am The Enforcer.” Is he The Enforcer in real life, at home with his fiancée, the actress Angelina Jolie, and their children?
    .
    Pitt laughs. “No, I think I am the absolute opposite to this character, who’s a complete pragmatist and doesn’t want to feel emotion. That’s why he describes murder as ”killing them softly“ – he doesn’t want the human mess that comes with violence.
    .
    “For me, being a father has changed everything for me as far as perspective and interests go. I just want to take care of myself and be around them.”
    .
    Cogan certainly isn’t the kiddy-friendly kind – and Pitt says he never brought him home with him. “I’ve heard these rumours that I stay in character the whole time during filming. It’s not true. I’m not that kind of an actor. I’m always too happy to go home.”
    .
    With a brood of children so large they could be rented out to Steve Martin’s Cheaper by the Dozen films, Pitt has proved himself to be a besotted father to the couple’s three biological and three adopted children. He says happily that the highlight of the week was watching one of his four-year-old twins swim a length of the pool.
    .
    And despite telling reporters in 2011 that, if not totally retiring aged 50, he wanted to get behind the camera and produce, he now says he’s changed his mind. “It’s too much effort, it’s too big a job. I’d rather be a Dad. It’s more fun.”
    .
    It would be nice to think that in Pitt’s slightly hazy, expansive frame of mind, one might be able to prise a wedding date out of him and thus have the scoop of the year – but one reporter already tried that, and was rewarded with a lazily amused, “Who do you think you are, schmuck?” look. After seven years and six children together, Brangelina became engaged earlier this year. Perhaps the most unbelievable of stories spun after the announcement was the one of how Pitt had become a Bridezilla in organising the wedding, fretting over confetti.
    .
    Rumours were rife during the summer that the wedding would be at the couple’s chateau in France; now, those reports have switched to Richmond in London, where they have been based while Jolie films the fantasy drama Maleficent. In her absence, Pitt has been watching a lot of sport.
    .
    “We’ve had an amazing summer in London,” Pitt enthuses. “Even with the rain. We’ve had the Euro Cup, the Olympics, the Paralympics, Andy Murray at Wimbledon, it’s been an incredible experience. Britain’s certainly been good to us.”
    .
    And, in return, could they give London the Jolie-Pitt nuptials, ideally with George Clooney as best man? “George doesn’t like institutions,” Pitt smiles. “Perhaps he could show people to their seats.”
    .
    For all we know, they might have done it already, in a July downpour at a Richmond registry office, overlooked by the press. The couple have, however, maintained they won’t make a commitment until gay marriage is allowed in the USA – and for this to happen in the near future depends on Obama’s re-election in November. “I’m a supporter of Obama,” Pitt declares, adroitly avoiding the issue of his own mother, Jane Pitt, recently stating that she supported Mitt Romney for espousing heterosexual-only marriage. “Gay marriage is only a matter of time. The next generation, they get it. It will happen.”
    .
    With its news montages and speeches from the US election of 2008, Killing Them Softly is released in the run-up to the next election, a move that Pitt describes as “a clever marketing tool”.
    .
    “I don’t want it as a commentary on anyone’s performance,” he adds. “It’s a satirical film and it’s by no means showing the whole of America. It was born of a cultural jaundice.”
    .
    But Dominik’s deeper commentary on the dark heart of greed is unmissable, especially when Pitt as Cogan delivers the most striking line of the film: “America’s not a country, it’s a business. So pay me, motherfvcker.”
    .
    “It’s a compelling argument,” agrees Pitt. “I don’t think by any means that that is all America is, but we are capitalists. There’s the ideal of who we think we are as Americans, and there’s the disconnections between our ideals and our motivations. Crime is just unvarnished capitalism, after all. And when the world is brought to the brink of catastrophe, then yes, I do think we should look at America as a business.
    .
    “We have had personal experience of the recent problems, making this movie,” Pitt continues. “After we made Jesse James, everything seemed to be about money. We really struggled to get anything made and this film was born out of that struggle. When Andy came to meet me about Killing Them Softly, it was the height of the financial crisis. It was the mortgage scam, a lot of people were losing their homes. Terrible, terrible times, and here is a story about those times.”
    .
    Even more poignant, Pitt recalls, was to set the film in New Orleans, the victim of both Hurricane Katrina and the financial crisis, where he and Jolie have a house. “What we needed was Failing City, USA,” he says, “and so I suggested it as of course we have a personal connection. They have a wonderful infrastructure for making films and anytime you bring a movie there, they are so grateful. It’s a personal satisfaction to me to be able to create jobs.”
    .
    Creating jobs, donating money to Haiti, playing with his kids, making movies with a message. If only Brad Pitt was the kind of guy who’d occasionally throw a tantrum over confetti.
    .
    “I’m sorry, I was rubbish today,” he says on his way out. Killing me softly.
    .
    ‘Killing Them Softly’ is released in the UK on 21 September

    No, I haven’t seen Putrid’s new Hugo Boss add and thankfully Jared hasn’t made a thread for it yet either. It always cracks me up that Putrid is so freaking snooty because she sure as hell hasn’t EARNED the nobless oblige attitude she’s always had. Her daddy produced and directed episodic televion. He was never a major movie director or producer. His best known tv show was St. Elsewhere but Putrid carries on like the man invented the cathod ray tube and everyone should genuflect to her because his brilliance is her brilliance. Hell, she’s only ever been in a handful of good movies and she’s never been able to build a great acting career on her Oscar win. Biitch is delusional. Since she and Ticky have already slept with the same man and are repped by the same PR Ho they really do need to be BFFs…except that Ticky’s ego would never be able to handle that because she knows Brad wouldn’t have looked at her twice if Putrid hadn’t ripped his heart out and trampled all over it…

    Brad Pitt says one of the reasons he chose to appear in the film Killing Them Softly was that he wanted to work with New Zealand director Andrew Dominik again.

    Dominik, who directed Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James five years ago, says the actor is the exact opposite of his Killing Them Softly “Enforcer” character.

    5 New Photos From ‘Killing Them Softly’ Starring Brad Pitt

    Brad Pitt is notoriously hard to net for a film. He’ll sign on to a lot of projects and even produce, but getting the man to star in a picture when all is said and done can prove to be difficult. Aussie director Andrew Dominik had a leg-up. He directed Pitt in the underrated “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” a movie that Pitt has said he lost money making, but is one of his personal favorite films. So how did Dominik get Pitt to sign on for his latest film, the American crime drama “Killing Them Softly”? “It was all very simple. I texted Brad, asking if he was interested, and he wrote back ‘Yes,’ ” Dominik told EW recently. “We basically worked the whole thing out via text message over half an hour.”

    With The Weinstein Company recently moving the release date from October to November, some are speculating the movie will have some awards season heat. But considering that Harvey hasn’t brought it out to any festivals since Cannes, we’re not so certain (it didn’t play Telluride or TIFF and won’t be at NYFF, though perhaps it can sneak into AFI). And while the movie is excellent, it’s a pretty bitter, angry and cynical film — not the usual fare that Oscar voters go for.

    At any rate, still plenty of time for the race to shift and shuffle, so until then, here are some new images and the official synopsis for the picture. “Killing Them Softly” opens on November 30th.

  • baby love

    Yup, old double standard again. You are so right- Brad would be roasted if he said even half of what Ben A stud, but what about Angie or any other female director? Any other female actress? There would be OUTRAGE, but of course the most outrage is always for the JPs.
    ……

    who +15 I’ve read three different versions of Ben Affleck’s new interview. What I got from it is that he loves to work, loves his kids but can’t help thinking about work on the few moments he gets to spend with them, that J. Garner loves to work too but now it’s obvious that she doesn’t have too much choice in the matter because she has to pick up his slack because he doesn’t want to be a stay at home dad, and take care of the three kids that Ben can’t be bothered to be fully present with even when he’s with them. Ugh! Ben Affleck just puts me off. If Brad had said half the things in that article it would be all over the media about what a shiitty father he is. Brad is so grateful to have his family, and so present and involved in his children’s lives. It shows in everything he does and says.

  • yikes

    yeah, Ben has done SOME good work & a bit more not so good work- I sure wouldn’t want to be one of his exes-ouch! I guess he’s just being honest in these interviews, but SERIOUSLY, hopefully JG, aka “super mom”, or a nanny is supervising BEN supervising these baths, because he sounds out of it. The youngest could definitely drown pretty easily and if either of the 2 older ones are a bit of rowdy, they could def cause some sort of injury to the baby or each other. Bath time is no joke!

    —-

    Ben admitted that when he’s hard at work on a film, he’s not very involved at home. He credited wife Jennifer Garner with handling things on that front. “I am not very present in the rest of my life. My wife’s very patient. She does everything. If I have time, I try to spend time with the kids, even if just to be a physical presence, the bath, whatever.”

    But even in the midst of his brood’s bathtime, Affleck is the first to admit his mind is often elsewhere. “My mind’s always going, ‘How are we going to light that show tomorrow? What’s the master shot for that scene? Is there even going to be a master? Just ruminating endlessly. Because for me — I wish it was discipline or being a great artist. But it’s just anxiety.”

    Angie is a true Queen in this photo, dressing with a fresh black silky tunic reveling her beautiful curves when she walks smiling and waving to the people.

    she looks imperial in her charming pose. Only Angie can put a long silky tunic that covers all parts of her body and still looks extremely sexy.

    Her breasts and legs are imprinted in the silky and she appear more healthy and beautiful than ever, but respecting the culture and the occasion with presence, confidence and control in her moves and actions
