Angelina Jolie Puts Spotlight on Syrian Refugees in CNN Report

Angelina Jolie is putting her name to good use once again to put the spotlight on Syrian Refugees in this new report that CNN aired on Thursday (March 27).

The 38-year-old actress, who is currently in Sarajevo visiting with victims of the Bosnian War, paid a visit to a Lebanese refugee camp to speak with a young girl named Hala and her five siblings.

“When I met Hala, and her brothers and sisters, they had been living in this camp for almost a year,” Angelina said in the video about the children, who watched their mother die under their collapsed home and don’t know where their father is.

    Hollywood star Angelina Jolie called Bosnia’s decision to include prevention of sexual violence in military training “inspiring” and “groundbreaking”.

    Speaking at a conference in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, the UNHCR goodwill ambassador said the issue of war zone rape “has been a taboo subject in all countries”.
    .
    “You are helping to break down those taboos and [are] redefining soldiering in the 21st Century,” she told the audience.
    .
    “There can be no peace in conflict or post-conflict zones while women are raped with impunity,” the actress added.

    This Widget Tells You How Gwyneth Paltrow Would Pretentiously Label Your Relationship

    There was a second there where I really wanted to sympathize with Gwyneth Paltrow over the end of her marriage to Chris Martin. But then I saw that she’d very pretentiously labeled their divorce as a ‘conscious uncoupling’ in her written statement, and that was all out the window.
    “We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”
    .
    Ugh, girl. C’MON. Obviously I still feel for the couple’s kids, Apple and Moses (and not just for the inherent burden in those names), but it’s hard to be on board with people who broadcast their superiority over the rest of humanity and the English language while simultaneously being completely inundated with cheating allegations. Double standard, anyone?
    .

    But luckily, now we can all get back to enjoying ourselves again, because the geniuses over at Slate (the same people who let you John Travolta-fy your name ala ‘Adele Dazeem‘!) have created a way for us to get in on the Pretentious Party. All you have to do is enter your name, your relationship status, and if necessary, the name of your partner into their amazing widget, and it spits out the ‘GOOP-ified’ version of what you should’ve been calling your union the whole time.
    .

    For example, my boyfriend Dan and I are ‘open-heartedly affixed’, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are ‘spiritually teamed’, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears are ‘unreservedly uncoupled’, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are ‘fated to be magnanimously intertwined’. I could honestly do this all day.

    Brangelina learned to ‘manage’ family

    Cover Media – 9 hours ago

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt initially didn’t know how they could “manage” their family.
    .
    The 38-year-old actress and her fiancé raise children Maddox, 12, ten-year-old Pax, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne together.
    .
    As their brood expanded Angelina and her beau had to find a sense of order to help them bond.
    .
    “A big family can generate a lot of chaos, we didn’t have a clear idea about how we were going to manage as our family grew larger until we figured out a way to organise everyone and make sure that we’d spend time with all the children,” she explained to British magazine Closer.
    .
    “Some of the kids feel closer to Brad and bond with him in a special way and some have a closer relationship with me. But it’s always changing and what’s beautiful about kids is how you just watch them grow and evolve as they learn more about themselves and the world.”
    Angelina and Brad got engaged in 2012 after being together for seven years. They have both been married before, but the actress claims it was being with the 50-year-old which really fuelled her maternal instinct.
    .
    “Brad has always been such a wonderful and loving father. It’s such a beautiful and sexy quality in a man when he takes responsibilities as a father very seriously. I still get very emotional when I watch Brad play with the children – he is so naturally devoted and joyful around them,” she smiled.
    .
    “When I was younger, I never imagined being a mother and then those maternal feelings evolved and deepened once I began adopting and started living with Brad, which made me want to have children of our own. Brad is so good about taking over when I’m working, but I’d rather be at home for dinner and read my children bedtime stories.”

  • Passing Through

    ROTFLMAO at Putrid saying she does like to be the lead in the movies she does so she doesn’t have to work every day…cuz rasising kids as an actress is just so much damned harder than having “an office job” because you don’t have to work 14 hour days and you’re not required to travel. Not one word about how difficult it is for her kids or her relationship…just herself. She is undoubtedly the “architect of her own misery” yet again.
    .
    First of all – When the fvck is she going to learn to keep her big mouth shut? Secondly, who is she fooling with that “doesn’t like to be the lead” shite? She doesn’t get offered lead roles in big movies because she’s not a bankable actress. And the last indie she die tanked and was ridiculed by a lot of people in the industry. Country WRONG was a snore.
    .
    Seriously…no wonder Putrid and Ticky are hanging out these days. What a couple of losers. Thank God stopped smoking weed all day every day. He could have neded up with one of these nitwits as his baby mama. Instead he hit the jackpot with The Jolie – a woman of true humility and grace. Not some narcissist biitch with her head stuck firmly up her own ass 24/7/365.

    Good Morning Love the JoliePitt
    .
    How are you my dear, you’re up very early today? Nonetheless very pleasant surprise I was about to go and saw your post so doing a quick reply, I’m still catching up reading wise from behind I have read your post to me thank you sorry couldn’t get time yesterday due to work so wasn’t able to reply back pronto. Love was going to say am so proud of our girl Angie God Bless her she really puts her heart and soul in her projects and I still am seriously impressed and humbled how she finds time in all her hectic work schedules, from Unbroken, family life, her UNHCR commitments, her forthcoming Promotion for Maleficent and that Video with the Syrian children just breaks your heart hearing and seeing their plights, still you see Aniston’s Trolls are still spewing hate regardless of what the subject matter is, Shame isn’t it these type of people actually exist amongst us. There is a saying there’s a time and place to vent ones anger but seeing Aniston’s Die Hard fans just puts certain quarter of humanity to shame doesn’t it with their constant hatred towards an innocent family. All its magnifying is what type of people Aniston really attracts. I guess these are the girly girls Chelsea Handler was talking about. Bunch of despicable human beings.
    .
    Brad looks handsome as ever and looks well rested I guess all this loving from his lady love Angie & his kids would do that to a young 50 year old man, Love I’ll keep it clean its too early to let my mind run in the gutter of all things PDA brad & Angie lol. He’s had one heck of a last year its time to enjoy before things pick up again with Fury. And its so heartwarming to hear all the great Buzz Fury has created at Cinimacon like Angie Unbroken did, these movies both will go head to head may the best man or best women win, ok I want them both to win its not too much ask is it ?.
    .
    I see Aniston’s stealing Brad & Angie quotes AGAIN not only this women stalks them during their promotion times, or when ever they have something going she muscles in with her BS hair, yoga, skincare and to sound interesting she lifts the same words from Brad & Angie’s interviews now that in my book is called stealing because we know how dumb she really is, after all this is a 45 year old women who cant even string a sentence together with out her PR mans help. Why not hire her own fiancée to write something interesting for her, after all isn’t he supposed to be a writer of some sort ?oh my bad he’s a crap writer as per Robert Downy Junior and the Director of rock of ages, I think he doesn’t give a shite how dumb she sounds he’s only interested in his mouthy pay. Honestly how pathetic is this women , just look at her shilling her cheap brands despite the fact she her self is having work done at skin care clinics having weaves put in her hair, talk about false advertising those companies should be sued as their brand ambassador is a FAKE & A LIAR.

    More Putrid hilarity – some chick who’s a BFF’s with Alexa Chung, the alleged “fashion It Girl” CM supposedly fell in love with, tweeted that now Chris Martin can have a bacon cheeseburger – with fries. Ouch. Can you just imagine if Holly, Jillian or Eunice had talked smack about Ticky after Brad dumped her? Game on, fvckers! LOL!

    @Passing Through: Nice comment . Angie is really very different with Brad’s exes. Brad really hit a jackpot with Angie, with JA and GP, I will ask what Brad is thinking hooking up with these 2 losers? Glad, he met and fall in love to Angelina. She is the best that ever happened to Brad. God bless the Jolie Pitt Family.

    Angelina Jolie’s Carefully Orchestrated Image

    By BROOKS BARNES
    Published: November 20, 2008

    LOS ANGELES — When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt negotiated with People and other celebrity magazines this summer for photos of their newborn twins and an interview, the stars were seeking more than the estimated $14 million they received from the deal. They also wanted a hefty slice of journalistic input — a promise that the winning magazine’s coverage would be positive, not merely in that instance but into the future.

    According to the deal offered by Ms. Jolie, the winning magazine was obliged to offer coverage that would not reflect negatively on her or her family, according to two people with knowledge of the bidding who were granted anonymity because the talks were confidential. The deal also asked for an “editorial plan” providing a road map of the layout, these people say.

    The winner was People. The resulting package in its Aug. 18 issue — the magazine’s best-selling in seven years — was a publicity coup for Ms. Jolie, the Oscar winner and former Hollywood eccentric who wore a necklace ornamented with dried blood and talked about her fondness for knives before transforming herself into a philanthropist, United Nations good-will ambassador and devoted mother of six.

    In the People interview, there were questions about her and Mr. Pitt’s charity work and no use of the word “Brangelina,” the tabloid amalgamation of their names, which irks the couple.

    Through a spokeswoman, People magazine, which is owned by Time Inc., released a statement denying that any conditions were placed on coverage. “These claims are categorically false,” the statement said. “Like any news organization, People does purchase photos, but the magazine does not determine editorial content based on the demands of outside parties.”

    While all celebrities seek to manipulate their public images to one degree or another, Ms. Jolie accomplishes it with a determination, a self-reliance and a degree of success that is particularly notable. The actress does not employ a publicist or an agent. The keys to her public image belong to her alone, although she does rely on her longtime manager, Geyer Kosinski, as a conduit.

    Jennifer Lopez, who sold pictures of her twins to People for an estimated $6 million in February, has a team of eight to help her navigate such situations. Ms. Jolie, 33, has her cellphone, a lawyer and Mr. Kosinski (and, of course, the counsel of her partner, Mr. Pitt). Getty Images handled the photography and some negotiations.
    “She’s scary smart,” said Bonnie Fuller, the former editor of Us Weekly and Star magazines. “But smart only takes you so far. She also has an amazing knack, perhaps more than any other star, for knowing how to shape a public image.”

    Ms. Jolie did not respond to interview requests and neither did Mr. Kosinski. Her lawyer, Robert Offer, declined to comment. But through interviews with nearly two dozen people who have worked directly with her over the years, a picture emerges of how she skillfully works the press.

    Ms. Jolie expertly walks a line between known entity and complete mystery, cultivates relationships with friendly reporters and even sets up her own photo shoots for the paparazzi.

    Most skillfully, she dictates terms to celebrity magazines involving their coverage of her and her family, editors say, creating an awkward situation for publications that try to abide by strict journalistic standards.

    Ms. Jolie showed her skill at handling the news media in other negotiations. People magazine bid successfully for photos and an exclusive interview after she gave birth to her first child in 2006. Those pictures sold for an estimated $4.1 million, a sum that she and Mr. Pitt said they donated to charity.

    In a separate 2006 negotiation with People, Ms. Jolie invited magazine editors — through her philanthropic adviser, Trevor Neilson — to bid on exclusive photos of her and her adopted Cambodian son, Maddox. But she made coverage of her charity work part of the deal.

    “While Angelina and Brad understand the interest in their family, they also expect that the publications who purchase these photos will use them in a way that also draws attention to the needs of the Cambodian people,” Mr. Neilson wrote in a December 2006 memo to editors.

    He went on to promise that Ms. Jolie would provide “exclusive quotes” to the publication that purchased the photos. “Publications are invited to comment on their editorial plans when submitting their bids,” Mr. Neilson wrote.
    Time Inc. won the photos, paying an estimated $750,000. In the Jan. 8 issue of People came an article headlined “Angelina Jolie: Mission to Cambodia.” As in other instances, the company paid the money to the photography company, Getty Images, which took its fee and split the rest in payments to companies operated on behalf of Ms. Jolie and Mr. Pitt. Those companies in turn funneled the money to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

    @offtheproperty: @lucy: To all the haters, stop it! Angie is NOT doing this for fame, she is already famous. Stop living in her past, she is no longer the woman she used to be. I am so sick of Wendy Williams and the haters that are still putting her down because of what happened to Brad and Jennifer. I am so proud of Angelina and her work.

  • Cassie

    @Observer2: ROFLMBO! GOOD POST. Angie is beautiful and it’s as if she isn’t because she’s not out showing her body and trying to pretend she is so hot like someone we all know. That person is in her forties and trying to be 19 showing hat old lady body. Angie is all about helping people and not herself. She is a good mother. Let her do her work and stop hating.

  • Cassie

    @Angie and Brad beautiful love: Very good post. I am proud of her, but I couldn’t do it, I would fall apart.
