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.

  • Dawne

    there’s a twinkle in Angie’s eyes when off the horrid subject and I suspect that is because of what occurred for Brad over the weekend. She will be ecstatic for him…….cause that’s how she rolls.

  • YIB

    and does anyone notice how good Angie looked here? beauty indeed.

  • YIB

    oh before I forgot I may go to go see wwz again with people I met at work. I will say if I noticed new things hopefully thrusday

  • lulu

    Lainey is a bias B,.tch!!
    MOS has a poor RT score, lower metacritic score than WWZ and yet she was all praise on this movie just because she had a hot on that new superman. Why didn’t she mention the 65 % drop of MOS last weekend. making it uncertain of reaching 300 million which every one was predicting, they were even predciting it would end up as high as Iron man.

    And lets wait for her prediction on Lone ranger, she was quite a fan of Depp.

  • YIB

    ok one more and night… looking the pics they choosed and all… how beautiful hair brad has seriously thinking he is a man and he is close to closing old decade and about…

  • YIB

    @lulu: pls pls don’t give those twits ( bad saying one woman to antoeher but they deserve it ) attetnion why you even go read and worse discuss them here and give them what they want. They fail. they want jps in the way only they can use them other wise they are out there to get them. But the public disagree’s and good summer movie did as it should… end of story.

    @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……
    **********************

    Also, here in USA, all men considered her a sex symbol, long before Brad came into her life. So she was receiving all these acting awards and men found her sexy. BBT, to me was a dirty old man because he got Angie when he knew men saw her as a sex symbol. I have always liked her boldness and admired her talent. She is bold, yet with a kind heart. She has a kindness that a lot of other actresses do not convey. So Angie has always been a big star. She does not use PR agents. So some people did not realize how much the public liked her, because she never played the PR game.

  • me

    @Joe: Shut up,you stupid moron.Why don’t you educate yourself on what Angelina has done the past decade.Audrey Hepburn,if she were still alive would be sooo proud of Angie knowing that what she started would be carried on by Angie.And Angie did more than that.So yes,Angie filled those shoes and more than enough to overflow.

    all TICKY’s fan are delusional .. Angelina Jolie had already an OSCAR and several acting awards and already an international movie star before Brad. It’s their idol who use Brad Pitt in order to make it into the movie.. if she did not married Brad Pitt she will have the same route as the rest of the FRIEND’s cast… into oblivion!!

    Brad Pitt’s World War Z smashes competition at the local box office

    June 25, 2013 9:58AM

    Brad Pitt rushes to save the world from a viral zombie attack in World War Z. Picture: AP Photo/Paramount Pictures, Jaap Buitendijk Source: AP

    THE Australian box-office has been overrun by zombies.

    A very strong opening weekend saw the horror-action blockbuster World War Z easily wrest the number-one position from previous holder Fast &Furious 6.

    Proving that there still plenty of life left in the dead-men-walking genre, World War Z grossed over $6 million against some hot new-release competition in Australian cinemas.

    Brad Pitt’s recent promotional visit Down Under certainly paid dividends for the American star, resulting in his highest-ever opening in the Australian market.

    @Jen The HAG:
    I also think they (Audy and AJ would be friendly, and probably vocal about each other’s work).
    It is only the haters trying to create controversy where there is none.

  • me

    Remarkable speech, and she spoke with a lot of confidence.That’s Angelina Jolie!!!

  • Registered nurse

    What a beautiful woman and a classy person, god bless mr.&mrs.Brad and Angie Jolie Pitt hooray xoxo

  • marina

    Sorry, Audrey, misspelling

  • Dawne

    Angie’s rarity involves her acting and directing talent, her stand alone beauty, her amazingly compassionate heart, her grace, her humility, her real grit and bravery, her iconic independence, her individuality in as sea of sheep, her honesty, her work ethic and organizational skills, her speaking and writing skills, her ongoing quest for political and socio-economic knowledge, her force resting quietly in a body of a model, her tenderness………a physically macho woman with the bearing of royalty.

    Angie’s IT factor results from being blessed with an abundance of admirable traits and talents………all used wisely and appropriately. The sex symbol who never shows gratuitous skin is just one minor example.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @marina:

    Exactly. Audrey didn’t start doing humanitarian work until later in her life. Angie started in her late 20s. I am not saying Angie is better because she will eventually did it longer than Audrey. They are both different and yet the same because both have great heart and desire to help others. Both are great humanitarians.

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Indispensable Angelina,
    .
    “What generally tips countries on the fence is a kind of of peer pressure. That’s where Angelina Jolie comes in. When she speaks at the Security Council, more than just the usual UN-watchers take notice. Her speech concluded only a couple of hours ago and there are already hundreds of news articles about her remarks, syndicated through the wires. This is awareness raising in action. And it can have real-world consequences for the global fight against sexual violence in armed conflict.
    .
    .
    Angelina, you are a phenom. So eloquent and right on point.
    .
    Thank you for being a voice to those who are crying out asking for help to stop the violence.
    .
    God bless you, sweet lady. And our Bradley for all you do to help so many.

  • lylian

    For me, how Angelina has grown as a human being has been a pleasure to watch over the years. When I first noticed her in Girl Interrupted, she seemed rather lost and self destructive.
    .
    But LOOK AT HER NOW!! Addressing the UN Security Council – by invitation of the highest officials of the UN.

    what i love about AJ is that she never ever said bad things to another person or even answered those people who bad mouthed her like Chelsea Handjob aka ANUston dog.. she just ignored them and move on .. .. Angelina is one of a kind whereas there’s a hundred of blond dyed bimbo.. like Ticky, Fishstick Paltrow and Chelsea Handjob!!

    ahhh looks like they are now doing the Brad Pitt promotion .. .. before it’s Johnny Depp now it’s Channing ..bwahahahhahahhhhahah but .. but i thought the HAG MONKEY said Brad is desperate to do that.. so now there will be a lot of desperate actors following Brad.. LOL. hmmm Will Huvane ask his client to do the same thing?????

  • Wonderbust

    @an opinion:
    LMAO o dear. But tampax has been going on and on for over a year about Channing Tatum and how he is a bigger star than Brad. I thought Tammy said only desperate has beens do surprise screenings. Lol everyone is pulling a Brad Pitt

    @Angie Speech in UN:
    .
    “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.”
    .
    Isn’t she a beautiful Soul Cesar?
    .
    She just enters the room and commands attention just by her sheer presence. Yet she is the first to say “This is not about me, please let us focus on the very important issues at hand.”
    .
    I loved how she kept focusing the press on Brad and WWZ at his premiere. She loves her man deeply and he loves her.
    .
    What a beautiful couple they are.

  • Wonderbust

    I just looked at Channing’s twitter account and it looks like he has actually done a number of screenings this week. Hmm I wonder why the media never reported it like with Brad’s.

  • Jones

    Damn everybody’s jockin’ Brad’s style. First Depp. Now Tatum. LOL! As long as they give credit where credit is due.

  • Joe

    @Wonderbust: #184

    Oh for the love of God, idiot loon! There is such a difference in pimping a movie for the studio, and surprising an audience, in a city where you are currently located! Tatum certainly isn’t flying all over the world pimping his movie. Or, using his wife and newborn child to garner attention! Hell, all he has do is smile and look at the camera… He is, by the way, a lot YOUNGER than Pittiful!!!

  • Wonderbust

    Forbes is full of crap. Didn’t parade magazine do a spread that said Brad earned $35mil last year

    @Jen The HAG: nobody’s going to let that flop onto their screens LMAO. A 50 year old stripper for pre-screenings? Nah, we will all just go to cheetahs bwahhahaha

  • Frenchy

    For those who are so defiant saying Angelina is no Audrey Hepburn, well yes it’s true. Because she is Angelina Jolie and no one, no matter how much they try, will ever be like Angelina. She has a complete identity and personality all her own that’s iconic and will continue to evolve & grow over the years. Imagine in 10 years she’ll only be 48 and all her kids will be teens, Maddox will be 21! the public will still be interested in the Jolie Pitt’s even then.

  • Jen The HAG

    yeah ..yeah we got it desperate LOONIFERS when it’s Brad it’s pimping the movie.. nothing wrong with that because Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise had done it all.. they been all over other countries too butfor DESPERATE TROLLS .. when Brad does it .. they goes ballistic .. anyway at the end of the day.. BRAD = 100% WIN .. LOONIFERS & HAGS = 0+High blood pressure+needs anger management …bwahhahahahahahah!!

  • Wonderbust

    @Joe:
    Hey idiot so Channing lives in Florida and Washington DC? He is doing a “tour” where he is doing surprise screening all over the country. He said so himself. How is that any different from what Pitt did. Lets see if White House Down can make $66mil this weekend

  • whatev

    Yeah, Brad reached out to those who count, his fans. Now the studios are going to make a lot of their folks hit the pavement plus do night talk shows. Brad’s the man because he did this and no late night talk shows. The Fallon bit was very funny but he didn’t do a interview.

    I bet prune face Aniston will do it, only if Huvane push it.

    Hi, Gold dust woman!
    .
    Always great to have you on board. You bring a ray of sunshine each time you post and that is said in sincere truth.
    .
    Didn’t out Bradley do wonders with this movie and its promotion? And a big “Yes” the fans are doing their part as well. Gotta Love the JP fans. They are the BEST!
    .
    The negative reviews have all turned positive except for the Lying troll who lives only to breathe hate against anything the JoliePitts do. She, full of hate is the first to rush to any positive JP site and spew her hate under multiple names, just as she is here doing the very same thing. Her results are always the same….complete failure but she plods on hoping against hope to twart the JPs in anyway she can. She is the perfect example of the insane Loser. We leave her to her hate which is consuming her.
    .
    I saw WWZ and Loved it. I was afraid of the Zombies but Brad did this movie so tastefully and so well it was extremely entertainingly filled with suspense and the intensity was there at all the right moments. I will see it again this weekend.
    .
    I hope you are doing really well and that we will continue to see you posting here more often than not. Take good care and please stay in touch.

  • Joe

    LMAO! In fact, Pittiful is old enough to be Channing’s Daddy!!!

  • Wonderbust

    @Joe:
    Well I guess he learns from his daddy since his people’s sexiest cover was the exact same thing Pitt did years ago. Too bad WHD will never make as much as WWZ opening weekend and may even lose to monsters u during its second week lmao

    Oh my goodness…every time I see AJ I want to cry with pride. Her speech was ON FIRE!! I always go back to Oliver Stone when he said, in past lives he believes “she led armies!” On a more superficial note, not the glossy beautiful hair and exquisite stunning face, as usual. :)
    .
    On another hilarious note…just saw Ted Bundeoux’s little motorcycle thread (seriously it’s the size of a big wheel I had at 5). Question? Why’s the tiny bald no-name douche wearing a mixing bowl on his head? He makes me want to bake a cake. As hot as it gets in NYC, I bet he bakes one made of black shoe polish, sweat and hair gel in that thing. (Heave, Blech)

    @lylian:

    Hi Lylian.
    .
    What struck me so vividly this week watching Brad promoting his movie so diligently is how he and Angelina are so alike in their approach to what they believe in.
    .
    Brad has said he doesn’t worry about it not happening, he goes out and makes it happen. His words made me think about Angelina and how far she has come in her determination to do something concrete about the violent rape attacks against these innocent men, women and children in war all across this world.
    .
    Here she is at the UN encouraging those who have the power to put a stop to this heinous crime by calling it exactly what it is – “A Crime against humanity” and to “do the right thing to put an end to it.” She is out there making a powerful difference and making it happen.
    .
    Just as Brad took the bull by the horns and went to the FANS to make his movie the success it became at this weekend’s box office and the success it will continue to be. And just as Brad went out and created the family he always wanted with the woman he fell in Love with for all her incredibly beautiful traits and strong character. Now look at our beautiful Shiloh….anxious to follow in her awesome mother’s footsteps.
    .
    No wonder the fans love and respect both of them so much.

    @Joe:

    So is Johnny Depp. Funny how Depp for all his supposed popularity has made a very smooth transition from his partner Vanessa & his children to someone young enough to be his daughter without any fanfare. No one mentions how dirty and filthy he looks most of the time either. Maybe no one cares?
