Angelina Jolie: United Nations Security Council Meeting!

Angelina Jolie speaks before a United Nations Security Council Meeting on “Women and Peace and Security and Sexual Violence in Conflict” held at the UN Headquarters on Monday morning (June 24) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress, who is a Special Envoy for the UNCHR, criticized the UN Security Council powers for their lack of action over wartime rapes.

“You set the bar,” Angie told the council (via the Huffington Post). “If the … council sets rape and sexual violence in conflict as a priority it will become one and progress will be made. If you do not, this horror will continue.”

“Let us be clear what we are speaking of: Young girls raped and impregnated before their bodies are able to carry a child, causing fistula,” she continued. “Boys held at gunpoint and forced to sexually assault their mothers and sisters. Women raped with bottles, wood branches and knives to cause as much damage as possible. Toddlers and even babies dragged from their homes, and violated.”

“Meet your commitments, debate this issue in your parliaments, mobilize people in your countries, and build it into all your foreign policy efforts,” she urged. “Together, you can turn the tide of global opinion, shatter impunity and finally put an end to this abhorrence.”

Before the meeting, Angelina was spotted giving a hug to Zainab Hawa Bangura, the UN Special Representative on Sexual Violent in Conflict.

FYI: Angelina is wearing Saint Laurent.

    Hahaha I did not give that snake lamey any clicks and here are the ff minions posting her stupid excuses.
    I sometimes keep a watchful eye when “her girl” gp puts her foot in her mouth or soemthing like that… She usually ignores the pictures or articles… Few times she adresses the bad reports and complains that everything is in the name of gossip and that is why she loves her… Hypocrite!
    She KNOWS that writing about the JPs is going to give her hits, and she used to say that she liked them. Now, she just bashes them, every oportunity she gets. Everything (in her articles) is like written from a ff point of view, very snarky. And still I think she really does not mind them, she just wants hits.
    I so much prefer other sites than her. Even Michael K, he is funny, unlike lamey. She WISHES she could write comedy like him.

    @Passing Through:
    my dear we know lamey is a piece of sh*t hater who use to b a pretender

  • Mediocrity is his name

    @fyi12: it’s not lainey, it’s Sarah from cina something. It’s a movie site but she also writes for Lainey. It’s not jealousy because she was a true fan of the book and was disappointed with the movie. She is Lainey’s movie blogger….she knows what she is talking about. Btw, she is a pitt fan.

  • chunky pipe

    …quit lying…pitt has said some bad things about will smith and prince…don’t re-write that lie…I’ve never heard la jolie say anything bad of anyone…they are not one…she is her and he is him…

  • lurker

    @Mediocrity is his name:

    Kudos to Angelina for once again living a life of meaning and support to others.
    Her spirit and energy is remarkable. And once again she sets a sterling example for her children.

  • chunky pipe

    …those crickets didn’t bother to read that movie cost 190 milli to make and 100 milli to market…if I’m correct that equals 290 milli before a ticket was sold…twice that to break even = 580 milli or 600 milli to round up…I don’t make predictions but it seems alot to make up…

    So another filipino hater. There was also Simy Alanes, the name changing troll. Why would filipino women hate on Angelina??


    becoz der husband dump them with the more productive girl’s end.

  • Lila

    Bringing from other thread:

    I am. Telling you, the haterfictions is very entertaining, I almost figure them out scratching their brains, rubbing their lone neurones and brainstorming at their hate forum thinking of what new thing to come up with. In these years they have already said it all!!

  • troll pain

    WWZ needs btwn $340-380M to break even and it is well on its way. I LOVED the book and also loved the movie. I am certainly not alone- praise and delight for and about this fun movie are all over the internet. Another great JP success!!

  • were the morons

    @fyi12: thanks fyi12! Man, you could hear the passion in Angie’s voice when she was talking about the rape victims. Can this woman be any more amazing?

  • sweetness

    Angelina is an absolute angel. A true wonder! Beautiful and such a humanitarian ..No one can touch her in Hollywood..she stands alone in being a pillar of grace.

  • troll pain

    hey, did anybody spot Maddox in WWZ? I looked for him, but there was so much action, I missed him. Also, I love Angie’s speech- she is such an inspiration.

  • chunky pipe

    mita!…whatevah!…believe what you need to believe…I don’t care…

  • Mrs. Right

    “Boys held at gunpoint and forced to sexually assault their mothers…” That just happened recently in West Palm Beach, FL as well.

  • susan 101

    WWZ is a flop. And the special affects are terrible. Another crappy movie for pitt that can’t act.

  • susan 101

    I wonder how much angie is giving to this High Commissions ORG, for this job title we all know that she isn’t qualified.

  • thelookoflove1365

    Kudos to Angie for all her hard work. I hope the UN will act not because it’s Angie who is asking them to do something but because it’s the right thing to do. These victims do not have a voice & only through Angie & other volunteers who’s brave & dedicated enough to travel to these remote areas, and serious journalist (very few nowadays) that we hear these stories.
    Congrats to Brad for WWZ success. The whole fam will be watching the movie this weekend.

  • Rose

    @Susan: Btw Susan, I believed Lamey was pushing MOS to bear WWZ over the weekend. How come she did not say anything about MOS taking in half of MU box office $s and WWZ beat MOS by about $17m. Strange Lamey did not make any reference to her baby MOS dropping over 65% it’s second weekend.

  • groundcontrol

    The Internet has certainly opened the floodgates for all the nasty, embittered, know it all, misfits to make themselves known.
    Perhaps we should all be grateful they are nothing more than imagery on the net and not inflicting their real sorry selves onto the world.
    All this talk about what WWZ needs to make a profit – unless these people know what contracts have been signed and their contents they have no idea when Z will turn a profit. All their generalities are meaningless with a movie like WWZ and with a star like Brad Pitt.
    I wonder of the theaters are getting anything yet and if they are then it’s no more than 30%. That’s been the standard for many years now for just regular first run, big studio films. Back in 1999, the studios were able to demand 70% of all proceeds from the first week for The Talented Mr. Ripley and a guarantee of a 4 week run. Can you imagine what Paramount was able to get for WWZ? Z may be one of those movies that gets 100% of the OW and then a high percentage like 70% the rest of the week.
    Theaters do not make their profits from ticket sales. But they do need a movie that draws a crowd and they want that crowd to buy buy buy at the concession stands.

  • also

    Rose- don’t forget that both MOS and MU were in hundreds more theaters than WWZ.

  • groundcontrol

    Please. Cinesnark is a MOS fangirl. She’s hyping that flick and naturally she’s gong to diss WWZ. As if her ridiculous tweet warning people not to see it has any effect at all. What a silly girl.
    It’s MOS which has been the bigger disappointment to filmgoers. MOS fangirls and fanbois are all over trying to diss WWZ hoping that will help MOS.

  • YIB

    Angie is doing what she believing Brad is on top of the world…
    There is a reason they are the most famous couple in the world may be other than presidents and kings that is. Love them :D haters burn burn burn… hahahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Frenchy

    Our girl is looking great! Her voice DOES count. She is a woman and a woman with influence. I’m glad these issues are breaking taboo and becoming more and more mainstream in terms of discussion. Even among our military it’s an issue. Speak up and speak out!

    Waving to all fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rolling my eye at all the trolls….

  • Bambi

    Yesss! I’m so happy that World War Z has turned out to be a really big tent-pole for Brad, Plan B and Paramount. This means, of course, that Brad and I will be working together on new projects long into the future. Brad’s tent-pole will serve us very well, if you know what I mean.

  • WWZ is a hit

    Mediocrity is his name @ 06/24/2013 at 5:22
    You and Sarah are so stupid that you don’t know that WWZ were released in only 30% of international markets. If it has the same numbers in other markets, it’ll be a 600 million picture (200 million USA, 400 international). if with 30% of the markets it gets 46 million, with 100% it will get more than 150 million first weekend. I think that it’ll do less in some markets, and probably it’ll be a 500 million picture, great anyway.
    But one thing is assured: it’ll do more than 400million.
    You can cry know, loosers.
    WWZ is a hit.

    @susan 101:
    poor thing you are in pain you need a hug

  • Wonderbust

    can these trolls and hens STFU with the $100mil in marketing. Newsflash, WWZ will make a killing in DVD sales, VOD, rentals, tv. That money is more than enough to cover marketing. and Sarah is dumb as hell because she said the international number were not impressive. Newsflash the movie did better than MOS in Korea and is on par with Inception in the international market thus far.

  • Etta

    Lol at Sarah as well for saying it’s going to take a couple of weeks for wwz to reach $100m domestically. Well duh, it’s going to reach that amount this weekend.

  • susan 101

    The only reason angie is well known now, is because she hook-up with the more famous brad. Angie was no where on the radar until she cheated with him and broke up a marraige. God will punish her when the time is right. No one should be given praise to someone that has committed adultery. And brad is a non believer.

  • Wonderbust

    hmm you all remember how tamshiit is always talking about how Channing Tatum is a bigger draw than Brad. Well his movie is coming out this weekend(budget $150mil). If it makes less than $66mil according to tammy’s logic that means its a flop, so I will be looking out for those numbers this weekend.

  • Ha!

    The trolls are dramatically losing their shit! LMAO!

  • deedee

    Lurker, thanks for the information…

  • anustin

    eerrrr….bambilusional is ur azzzz…per Marc Poster poppa pitt light up everytime anjie and the kids showd up while filming…bwahahahaha…keep on dreammin…we will understand ur fuggy azzzz.

  • Rose

    @Susan: Hi Susan, I see a troll stole your name. Life is tuff, trolls cannot think up an original moniker. WWZ with $66.5M is sending the Jen hens over the edge.

    Angelina and Brad are the boss. Love them. Trolls are on melt down mode. But it’s all good. Trolls crying and Brad and Angelina laughing all the way to the bank.

  • groundcontrol

    The 30% of the foreign markets WWZ has been released in does not mean it’s 30% of the foreign BO. Not all foreign markets are equal. It still hasn’t opened in the biggest markets.
    So, yes. WWZ’s performance in the opened foreign markets so far is a great sign.
