Angelina Jolie: United Nations Security Council Meeting!

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.

    @anustin: Hi Anustin, I saw WWZ Sunday’s take was larger than MU and MOS. Trolls and Lamey are having a really bad hangover today, lol. The fans are having a great day. Angle looked beautiful today while bringing her message to the world. Angle is a brave and strong woman. More power to her and Brad.

  • Angie Speech in UN

    bring from the other thread…..

    Angie made a emotional and powerful speech about “Sexual Violence in Conflict”, in her first time discourse in the UN Security Council.

    Angie speech start at : 2:17:00

    Angie voice is a beautiful whisper that comfort and give strong to the weakest but the content of her words burn and punch harder all the Politicians that she want to target and make impossible for them to escape the responsibility to take action.

    Angie was brilliant and she give visibility to this subject like no other. She was happy to be there, in the UN, helping to change the world.

    I imagine that Angie will be in the UN many more times in the future and probably she will be a full time UN Diplomatic.

    PS: one of the best parts of the video is just before the beginning of the works, when Angie walk in the room the excitement is so big that even the others participants and assistants want to take a picture of Angie and talk with her. She was surrounded by people and the welcome was incredible.

    @susan 101:

    er Angelina became a breakout international star with GIA since it was about true story about a supermodel and at the time of filming supermodels were IT. Fashion, film & music came together with that movie as well as critical acclaim/awards for Angelina which in itself gets you international press. Second: Girl, Interrupted. Everything from the moment she was cast all the way up to her receiving an Academy Award for her performance gave her international visibility. Third: Lara Croft : Tomb Raider this really put her and has kept her an internationally known actress. All of this in addition to Angelina being so stunning (atypical of what a Hollywood actress usually looked like around this time) and blunt speaking has made her an international darling. so please have a seat……

  • Gold dust woman

    Love the Jolie Pitts – lovely to see you on the board too. You were the first poster on here to welcome me, so I always look out for you.
    I agree, the fans on here have been great these last few days. There was a professional risk for Brad this weekend and the fans just took charge. It was like each fan independently decided ‘hmmm, not on MY watch! ‘
    So they gathered husbands, children, neighbours, crazy aunt Bertha, the local, homeless drunk and just went and bought cinema tickets by the bucketload!
    And look what happened! 66 million +. Great stuff!

  • Shamu

    Where’ s the loony Phool with his/her A4 lenght post about Jolie being the supreme ruler of Universe. Angie is so desperate to be the new Audrey Hepburn. Too bad she doesn’t have Hepburn’s caring, down to earth character. If her next film doesn’t make huge profit in the box office she can kiss her film career goodbye.

  • lurker

    you trolls are cray,that is why whe is directing for a major studio,got paid 20 million,and bot her last 2 movies are hits next troll

  • Suri the meal ticket

    Classy as ever!

  • Dawne

    Dem grapes being served up today seem a bit sour……..LMAO……good on Brad for saying eff you to the snarky, nasty attempt to pull him down by the so called HW media……..they should have known better. Build em up, bring ‘em down doesn’t apply to the JP’s…..they are too pure in motive, too rich in talent, too smart and hardworking…….and too rare in the industry. If they are brought down there is literally no couple of their stature to step up.

    As for the demons who have taken the time to come to a thread on the rape of babies, children and mothers and make it about a failed marriage almost a decade ago should be dropped into a refugee camp and left to fend for themselves for a few months.

    And as for them referencing ‘karma’ for an imagined affair……I would be particularly nervous were I them……in fact I’d crawl into a protective bubble and live out my life intact and shielded because there has to be a ‘special’ level of karmic conviction for those who dismiss this level of horrific human suffering.

  • anustin

    eeerrrr…was Hepburn a UN.ENVOY??????how old Hepburn started her charity again???

  • Gold dust woman

    As for Lamey, that loser is just a 3rd rate Nikki Finke wannabe. While Nikki dines with Hollywood executives at major industry events like the Oscars, Lamey sits in her dressing gown ‘live tweeting’ from her living room with her other ‘writers’!
    She has NO inside info about the industry and has zero standing in it. Watch her get it wrong every awards season. Every box office battle weekend. Every, well every time really!
    So, no need to take any nonsense she writes seriously.

  • BP

    God rest Audrey Hepburn soul! Angelina has done much more than Audrey for the UN. Angelina has covered over 25 countries, Audrey was focus was Africa.

  • chunky pipe

    A good review from my country
    Guerra Mundial Z: entretenimiento puro
    El filme mantiene al público interesado.

    Lucero Solórzano 24/06/2013 00:00

    Un planeta Tierra al borde del desastre total sigue siendo materia prima para contar historias de todo tipo que plantean cualquier cantidad de causas para la llegada del Apocalipsis.

    Basada en la exitosa novela Guerra Mundial Z de Max Brooks, hijo de los actores Mel Brooks y Anne Bancroft, se empieza a estrenar a nivel internacional la adaptación homónima World War Z dirigida por Marc Foster que llegará a México este viernes 28.

    Explotando los miedos y paranoias de la vida moderna la historia plantea un ataque feroz de zombis (no muertos o no vivos como usted prefiera), que amenazan con acabar en pocos días con cualquier vestigio de vida humana en el planeta.

    Echando mano de muy buenos guionistas entre los que se cuentan Drew Goddard (Lost) y Matthew Michael Carnahan (Lions for Lambs; The Kingdom, State of Play) se trata al parecer y según lo reconoce el propio Max Brooks de una adaptación libre —no conozco el original— que con fines dramáticos y cinematográficos se toma algunas licencias.

    Guerra Mundial Z llama la atención en la filmografía de Marc Forster que tiene películas muy recomendables como Monster’s Ball, Descubriendo Nunca Jamás, Cometas en el cielo y Más extraño que la función, todas espléndidas. Se acercó al cine de acción en 2007 con 007: Quantum of Solace, pero sin duda Guerra Mundial Z no se parece a nada que Forster haya dirigido antes.

    Protagonizada por “super” Brad Pitt tiene uno de los mejores arranques que hayamos visto en una película de acción que dura más de diez minutos. Pitt con su amplia experiencia como padre de familia interpreta a Gerry Lane un ex inspector de la ONU (no me queda claro qué inspeccionaba), quien obviamente abandonó la chamba porque entraba en conflicto con su vida familiar. Gerry es un esposo y papá ejemplar de dos niñas, una ¿cómo que no? y en un cliché que complica las cosas, sufre ataques de asma. Les prepara un rico desayuno cuando en la televisión empiezan a aparecer reportes de reacciones extrañas entre la población, en algo que parece un brote de rabia, él lo ve de reojo sin darle mayor importancia. Salen los cuatro a la calle y en el corazón de Filadelfia y a los dos minutos de empezada la película se inicia una secuencia cargada de explosiones, coches voladores, multitudes en pánico y unos extraños seres, aparentemente humanos y que poseen una fuerza formidable, atacan ferozmente y con una velocidad sorprendente.

    Hay que enfatizar que éste fue un proyecto que se peleaban Leonardo Di Caprio y Brad Pitt al frente de sus productoras Appian Way y Plan B respectivamente. Generó gran expectación qué podía tener esta historia para entusiasmar tanto a estos dos personajes, y sin duda es que permite el lucimiento absoluto del protagonista que todo lo sabe, todo lo puede, sabe dónde buscar, es irrompible, hace inferencias gratuitas y además, en el caso del marido de Angelina Jolie, está rodeado de actores de bajísimo perfil, sin duda bien seleccionados pero que ni como “estrellas” ni por el peso de sus personajes en la trama le roban atención a Brad Pitt.

    Guerra Mundial Z con su alto presupuesto tiene grandes méritos en lo tecnológico, muy buenos efectos especiales con una 3D de la que se puede prescindir y bien logrados momentos de acción que nos mantienen interesados.

    Finalmente hay que reconocerle que es un efectivo entretenimiento al que no hay que darle demasiadas vueltas. El ritmo es impecable y nos mantiene interesados aunque los zombis a veces mueven a la risa.

    Puro entretenimiento puro.


  • well

    @Adorkable jolie: Angie and Brad have been together so many years, are clearly so in love, and have six gorgeous babies together, it is very apparent that they both share so much.  I was trying to agree with about how even hot Angie & hot Brad are also very cute, especially when they are laughing, and enjoying each other’s company- it is truly a joy to see.  However, if you want to only focus on Angie, it is this beautiful inner humor, sweetness and nerdiness (what you are calling “adorkable”) that is one of the many reasons that Brad fell deeply in love with Angie and is still so in love with her to this day.  I remember during AMH promo Angie talked about how attractive Brad finds it when she is reading/studying and writing her op-eds.  Here is the link to video I referred to where Angie calls herself a dork. At one point Simon W says, “Of course, Angelina is brilliant, you know, and can do anything”.  We saw the truth in Simon’s words today at the UN, almost 15 years after he spoke them.

    Shamu’s brain has shrunk, all because of drugs,alcohol and what have you.Of all the hollywood celebrities in the world,Angie has been the most caring and most down to earth person the world has ever seen.

  • whatev

    Gorgeous woman and a beautiful heart!

  • busted

    Can’t believe that WWz is still trending. WOM is going to help it a lot this coming week. I hope that those that saw it will want to see it again. and those that were watching MU or MOS will check it out too. People do see more than one film.

  • Jones

    Geez, that Sarah chick at Cinesnark really needs to take a chill pill. She’s clearly gone mental over a summer movie. Hope she’s off the street before dark. Even the zombies would be running from that hot mess.
    Angie looks so good. I see she’s rockin’ Saint Laurent again. Happy to hear the security council passed the draft resolution earlier today. Go Angie!
    As I mentioned on Brad’s thread, the JP household has clearly been very busy the past few days. And I mean really busy, not ticky’s version of busy. Hoping they get some much needed down-time soon.
    OT: Cameron Diaz’s new movie she’s filming with Kate Upton looks like crap.

  • WWZ is a hit

    groundcontrol @ 06/24/2013 at 6:19 pm
    Actually they are talking about 30% of the market (not 30% of the countries).

    WWZ opened in 3 big markets. There are 10 (eleven with China).

    But the movies perform differently, Some contries prefer actions, others dramas, others fantasy, etc. Then, only all markets already opened that you have a clear picture of the final box office (in 3 more weeks that will be clearer).

    In the 3 bigs that already opened: SK was great.
    Australia and UK was good, but not great.

    South Korea has a number for more than 400 million international. UK and Australia for 300 million international.

    We wanna see.

    If all markets perform like the first: 45,8/0,3=152,3.
    With 3 multiplier, it’ll be more than 450 million international. But that is too optimistic.

  • naturegirl


    God she is Gorgeous!!!!!!!!

    Love you much!!!

  • hopeso

    Thank you Angelina.

    Rape has always been used as a weapon by but because of you speaking up as acting on behalf of the millions of women and children that have suffered at the hands of these animals it has been brought to the forefront instead of something whispered about.

    God bless you and your family.

  • cee

    LoveAngie. She is amazing Haters are so upset they can not think of enough evil things to say. Pathetic.

  • Go Figure!

    OT: PT: At least we won’t have to see Nadal and his butt digging at Wimbledon this year. He’s already on his way home after losing in the first round. Now if we can just get Federer to play like he really, really wants this title. . .

  • WWZ is a hit

    No critics yet for “The Heat” and “White House”.
    In general this means: critics will hate both.
    They can be hits – some very bad movies are hits – but they probably will have a very low rottentomatoes score.
    Good news for WWZ.

  • Go Figure!

    @Rose: Hey Rose: Are you gonna watch the movie about our girl, Jodi? I passed on this as I refused to give her any more of my attention. LOL!

  • White Swan

    She is right rape is a crime and it’s going to take a lot of action on the part of these nations to stop it.

  • Premalee

    @PT and QQQQ

    Murray is going to win Wimbledon this year. I hope Federer plays well.

  • Angie Speech in UN

    It´s my impression or Angie face is a little bit full, she appear to have gain weight. What you think?

    The Jealous-haters will jump from their seats in the toilet if it´s true. ha, ah, ah

    I love to see the dumb-trolls crying like a baby when they see the beautiful and incredible Queen Angie in the World news working and helping to make this a better World.

  • Joe

    I think ALL of you need to educate yourselves on what Audrey Hepburn stood for as a human being… Angelina Jolie will NEVER be an Audrey Hepburn. NEVER! Those shoes are entirely too big to fill.

  • TommyBahama

    White Swan at 7:51, no.139; During the USA slavery years, rape was a crime punishable by hanging; sometimes called lynching.

  • Passing Through

    4Q & Premalee -
    I’m just now getting around to checking the Wimby scores – BDB lost in the first round to some dude name Darcis? WTF? Did either of you watch? I’m just wondering if he take a powder so he can rest for hardcourt season? Whatevs. On Roger’s behalf I say thanks and good riddance. I was dreading having to watchin him dig in his butt during their quarters match and now I won’t have to. Now we just need Murray to do his usual crumble routine…

  • Grace2Two

    As a Special Enjoy for the UNCHR Angelina’s role is to focus on large scale crises in these regions the rape and mutilation of all those females women young and old is a bad one that has to stop.
