    There was a very good movie about Aung San Suu Kyi – The Lady, starring Michelle Yeoh. I’m so out of touch about world news that I only found out about this brave woman because I admire Michelle Yeoh. Michelle Yeoh won a beauty contest before becoming an actress. Interesting life.

  • Jana500

    No. Because you add nothing of worth or intelligence to the discussion.

  • Angiefan

    Both have been super-successful in their respective fields! Celine Dion is the most brilliant female singer in the world if you didn’t notice :)

  • toastie postie

    Is that Michelle Obama in the picture next to Angelina? I don’t recognize the hair style.

  • JPFamily

    Hurrah, yes Angelina is #1 and always will be in my book.

    Reposting these lovely words from William Hague about Dame Angelina, for some of the many reasons why she is the most admired.

    William Hague: It’s been great but time is right to go

    Perhaps we will see him in the background as Angelina Jolie uses whatever advice he has given her.

    “Ooh, I don’t share with anyone the advice I’ve given to Angelina Jolie,” he said.

    “We’ve worked together and co-founded the global campaign to prevent sexual violence in conflict and I will continue that work after leaving Parliament.

    “There are a couple of causes I want to continue with. I will continue to work with her on that, using all the contacts, all the reputation we’ve developed. We will keep on that vital work. I will keep trying to end the illegal wildlife trade.

    “But Angelina Jolie doesn’t need advice from me. She knows how to present herself very well. Her integrity and knowledge of these issues is enormous. Sometimes people think a Hollywood celebrity is just a name. But really she has the huge commitment and knowledge of all the issues.”

  • Love the JoliePitts

    Yes it is. And you are right. First Lady Michelle is almost unrecognizable in that picture.

  • Felinelilly

    Way to go Angelina.

  • toastie postie

    Thanks. I was wondering who that was.

  • Seriously

    But endlessly hate trolling other famous people add worth to your “intelligent” discussion?

  • Seriously

    Thank you for showing us your horrible taste. No wonder you call yourself Angiefan

  • Bwest

CongratulationsAngelina Brad &, couple more powerful! The whole world already knew, HW pretends to agree, very jealous!And enemies only need to accept.It hurts less!

  • Dawne

    Nowhere because she is no one.

  • bap

    Angelina earns her awards and titles through hard work and hands on effort.

  • Dawne

    We have a reason for hating trolls like you… are morons who want to toxify intelligent discussion and smear good people rather than deal with your personal issues and social dysfunction.

  • bermy girl

    Congratulations to Angelina Jolie, a woman who uses her fame, talent and energy to do good in this world.

  • Passing Through

    I see Jared finally put up a thread for this. Does that mean everyone’s happy now?

  • forest4trees

    Hi breakaleg4!!! ;0) Considering you think Jennifer Aniston is the best thing since sliced-bread and feel she deserved an Oscar nomination this year over Pike, Jones and JULIANNE MOORE we know how to rate your intelligence.

  • FormerLamark

    Oh,you’re already tired of &sslicking? What a pity! I thought “intelligent discussers” were never tired of it!

  • Revengefan0101

    I LOVE this list. Smart, strong women are amazing and great role models.
