Angelina Jolie Photographed on First Day of Myanmar Visit

Angelina Jolie-Pitt stops for a photo outside of the Myanmar Parliament Building on Tuesday (July 28) in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

The 40-year-old actress, director, and activist was taking a meeting with the Speaker of the lower house, the Burmese House of Representatives, Mr. Thura Shwe Mann during the first day of her visit to the area.

“I am looking forward to meeting with many people including women’s groups, civil society, displaced people and youth, to learn firsthand from them about their concerns and hopes for the future of their country,” Angelina told People. “With elections on the horizon in November, it is an important moment for people to exercise their democratic rights and help to address the fundamental issues critical to a peaceful future.”

Angelina is a Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees since her appointment in 2012.

    Angelina Jolie Pitt visits Burma to learn more about the situation in the country and encourage efforts to build a peaceful and inclusive future for all its people.
    Angelina Jolie Pitt has arrived in the country, for her first visit to the country.
    The four-day visit will encompass both challenges arising from the legacy of conflict, and issues that will help determine the future of the country.
    Angelina Jolie Pitt will carry out engagements in her capacity as Co-Founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and as UNHCR Special Envoy will carry out field visits to displaced people in Burma’s conflict-affected states.
    She will meet local people who are working on human rights and inter-faith relations, and groups carrying out projects to promote women’s rights, voter education and participation ahead of the forthcoming elections. She will also meet the President and members of the government.
    Angelina said:
    “I am looking forward to meeting with many people including women’s groups, civil society, displaced people and youth, to learn firsthand from them about their concerns and hopes for the future of their country. With elections on the horizon in November it is an important moment for people to exercise their democratic rights and help to address the fundamental issues critical to a peaceful future.”
    Note to editors:
    Angelina Jolie Pitt has been following the situation in Burma closely since her first visit to Burmese refugees in Thailand in 2002, and her many subsequent visits to the region to focus on these issues.
    The visit follows a personal invitation from Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Angelina has been in contact with Daw Suu since their first exchanges around the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London in June 2014.
    She arrived in Burma from Cambodia, where she was visiting health, education and conservation projects funded by the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation since 2003, and beginning preparations to direct the film First They Killed My Father based on a child’s experience of the years of turmoil in the country.

    Ooooooh…new thread and i’m here early.

    Isnt life in the JP fandom something else! Sometimes theres a dearth of info and sometime its a case of “it never rains but it pours” – like now.

    We could have stayed a bit longer on the previous thread but nooooooooo…..here comes yet another lovely new one.

    Because the busy busy bee Mrs Angelina Jolie Pitt is all over Asia and shes getting lots and lots of things done, both to do with UNHCR (meeting with Aung San Kuu Kyi and other Burma and Cambodia leaders); her profession (new movie pre-prod); and her personal life (visiting her projects in Cambodia and getting her new teen and CEO-in-training, Madd, au fait with the biz and his upcoming responsibiities.

    Talk about a MULTI-TASKER EXTRAORDINAIRE!!!!!! love love love it!

  • angiefan

    You are doing both! Geography and politics. :0)

  • snakeskin

    This just cements how litte the press know about Angie and Brad. These visits are not last minute arrangements,especially in a place like Burma.
    Who knew she had Netflix deal, who knew she would be visiting Asia? No one but Angie, Brad and their close circle.
    Those gerbils in France are such slackers.lol

    Hopefully they will come together for a meeting.

    I notice those guys don’t want to let go of her hand. :0)

    Angelina looks gorgeous and has such a serene look about her.

  • Passing Through

    SCHWEET! I hadn’t seen that. Went to a meeting and hadn’t caught up with the last thread yet. Poor 7 Stooges. Now they’ll be saying Angie has had the CiacIACiAciaCIaCIa brainwash Aung San Kuu Kyi…

  • wika

    As you can see, they’re already having a meltdown. There’s been trolls with different names spamming since the last thread, including our jajjjaja LOL. But of course by now they’re all zapped away…

  • Lily

    Angie is really multi-tasking,combine movie/UN/PSVI trip together. amazing

  • Passing Through

    I still haven’t read much. I just saw the article on the other thread saying that Suu Kyi had invited her personally – and that they’ve been corresponding since last year’s PSVI – and of course nobody knew because Angie doesn’t brag about who she knows and doesn’t name drop people to look important. Note to Porgie…

  • Lily

    So Brad is going to VFF, he is so hot in The Audition.

  • wika

    Did they mention it? Considering that it’s a 16min video I kind of doubt it. But I don’t know.

    I had to laugh when I read the caption on the photo at the link above –

    British Ambassador, Mr Andrew Patrick, welcomes Angelina Jolie Pitt…

    Didn’t I say last night that the guy “looks British?” LOL! My buddy BBOQ will no doubt accuse me of being a xenophobe again…but there’s just something about that guy’s suit, hair, glasses, and body language that screams British.

  • wika

    If this were to happen to porgie, or ticky or whoever, we’ll be getting headlines or even inteviews about it by now. LOL.

    Angelina is in a league of her own. All these high profile connections- NBD. oh I mean ciA/cia/cIA got her those contacts. LOL!

  • first and last post

    OT: skip if not interested.
    I am so livid over this. I posted this on the Kimmel thread but I need to rant this off…re: beautiful Cecil, the lion…RIP.

    FVCK Walter Palmer and anyone who “loves” and finds pleasure in killing an innocent animal especially by luring them out of their protected haven for an outrageous $55,000, then to spend 40 hours to hunt the wounded lion down, then kill him off with a shotgun, skin him and behead him for your trophy wall is just absolutely wrong…WTF is going through your mind you callous son of a bitch…and a dentist to boot…why would anyone go to a dentist who is a “killer”…one can only hope he, in particular, pays for this outrageous act…he should know better…claiming he didn’t know…what a lame excuse for an educated man, who likely looked the other way to kill for what he claims is his “love”…aka a “love to KILL.” How can someone love taking away a life yet be in the health profession…it is totally contrary to “helping others.”

    Your patients should be ashamed of you and go elsewhere…you are using their money to support your brutal sport killing. Hope you get a nasty retribution that NO MONEY can buy back for this heinous action… you low-life, Dr. Walter Palmer. Maybe someone will shoot you with a bow and arrow, hunt you down, skin you and cut your head off for their trophy wall…how would you like that DR. Palmer…a.s.s.hole.
    I’m going to track down this Motherfvcker and tell him what I think of him.

    Damn. Angie’s got an ambitious schedule, but I wouldn’t expect less of her. I wonder if Pax is going to go any of the trips with her? Those kids are getting one hell of an education – even if they don’t realize it.

    The lady in the 1st picture looks familiar. She was the one that was giving Brad a mean look in England. Or is she like me and says, “What? This is my smiling look.”

    So is Venice FF the last of them all? Well I’m glad it’s going to be all over soon. No more whining from poor little ugly unappreciated troll who can’t stick to their own websites. There, there. Don’t be so upset. Do you need a pat on the empty head? LOL

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    I just saw the TIFF list and I said months ago when Uni gave the release date that BTS wasn’t going to festivals – and now that we know Angie’s prepping FTKMF there’s now way in hell it’s going to festivals. She doesn’t have time for it. Poor “Guest” needs to put in her Frozen DVD and let it go…and the trailer, too…
