    Angelina Jolie Pitt Gets a Leg Up on Next Season’s Boot
    ================================================
    The boot is back! That, as we just witnessed in the Fall collections, is the none-too-subtle shoe takeaway from Fall. We saw solid and sturdy versions on the runways at Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Vetements, and Yeezy, and a whole range of other styles, from ’70s-minded to floral-inspired. And unsurprisingly, one A-lister who’s already got a leg up on the look is Angelina Jolie Pitt. Earlier this month, the actress jetted out of Los Angeles with her young brood in a streamlined, to-the-knee style. And today, while visiting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to discuss the refugee crisis, the Special Envoy to the United Nations punctuated her one-note look with a smart, kicky pair of mid-calf boots.

    Jolie Pitt often sticks to tried-and-true accessories in shades of black whether it’s Everlane loafers or Jimmy Choo ankle boots, and these are a hybrid of both, making them the perfect transition for spring. The elegant, buckle-accented pair adds cool contrast to her subdued frock, grounding her look with a polished, yet edgy vibe.

    UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie Pitt visits Greece
    ============================================
    Press Releases, 16 March 2016

    UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie Pitt is visiting Greece today on behalf of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi.

    The Special Envoy’s mission will concentrate on the humanitarian situation of thousands of refugee families in Greece, most of whom were forced to flee Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. Close to 85% of all the refugees and asylum seekers who have arrived in Europe landed in Greece since January 2015. Today, there are over 40,000 people in Greece who have arrived during the past weeks, who desperately need protection and humanitarian support.

    She will reiterate UNHCR’s support to Greece in the expansion and coordination of protection and assistance to refugees, the strengthening of registration and asylum procedures, and the upholding of essential international protection and refugee law standards and the implementation of the EU relocation program. She will express her appreciation for the support and solidarity Greece has shown the hundreds of thousands of refugees and asylum seekers who have landed on their shores after dangerous and difficult – sometimes deadly – journeys.

    Ms. Jolie-Pitt’s visit will focus on:

    • Access to adequate reception conditions and protection, including those legal pathways available to refugees and asylum seekers, such as the EU relocation programme.

    • Challenges and constraints facing the emergency response, as well as ways UNHCR could further support the government and communities in Greece.

    • Support for refugees with specific vulnerabilities, such as women headed households, unaccompanied children, disabled, or those who have been exposed to sexual or gender based violence.

    “I am here to reinforce efforts by UNHCR and the Greek government to step up the emergency response to the deteriorating humanitarian situation. I look forward to meeting authorities, partners and volunteers working on the ground to improve conditions and ensure the vulnerable are protected,” Special Envoy Angelina Jolie Pitt said.

    The visit comes the day after the Special Envoy’s visit to Lebanon, on the 5thanniversary of the Syrian conflict, where she stressed the need for leadership and coordinated international action to address the root causes of the global refugee crisis. It is her first visit to Greece on behalf of UNHCR.

    UNHCR is supporting the authorities in Greece who are responsible for the reception, registration and assistance to refugees and asylum seekers arriving on their territory. UNHCR has set up eight field offices with hundreds of staff and significant resources to support shelter, water and sanitation, health and protection services among other priorities. With the build-up of numbers in Greece during the past weeks, however, efforts are not meeting all the needs on the ground and the situation is deteriorating daily.

    The Special Envoy’s visit comes on the eve of a critical meeting between European Union Member States and the Government of Turkey that will potentially affect thousands of refugees and asylum seekers in Greece. The Special Envoy is also due to be participating at a high-level meeting to explore legal pathways for Syrian refugees, such as resettlement, humanitarian admission programmes, private sponsorships, family reunion, student scholarships and labour mobility schemes, later in the month in Geneva.

    Studiocanal Acquires Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson’s ‘Lost City of Z’ for Multiple Territories (EXCLUSIVE)
    ======================================================
    PARIS– Pan-European major Studiocanal has acquired James Gray’s anticipated “Lost City of Z,” starring Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland, in multiple territories.

    Studiocanal will distribute the action-adventure film in France, the U.K., Germany and Australia/New Zealand.

    Sold by Sierra/Affinity, “Lost City of Z” is produced by Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner via Plan B Entertainment along with Anthony Katagas and Dale Johnson.

    Based on David Grann’s 2009 novel, “Lost City of Z” follows the adventures of Percy Fawcett, a soldier and explorer who embarked with his son on an expedition to find the mythical kingdom of El Dorado in the Amazon jungles of Brazil and disappeared.

    The ambitious pic marks Gray’s follow-up to “The Immigrant,” his 2013 period drama with Marion Cotillard that world premiered in competition at Cannes. “Lost City of Z,” however, is not expected to play in Cannes since it’s still in early post and will not be completed in time for the festival.

    MadRiver Pictures’ Marc Butan is exec producing with Mica’s Julie B. May and Glenn Murray. Mica Entertainment is financing.

    “Lost City of Z” shot in Belfast, Northern Ireland and in Colombia. Sierra/Affinity unveiled a promo at the EFM.

    Paramount Pictures will release the film in the U.S.

    Why Religious Movies Are Luring Mainstream Stars

    Producer Joe Roth recalls how, in 2013, when he was assembling Heaven Is for Real, he met resistance. “At that time, if the casting agent says, ‘I want Brad Pitt,’ his agent says, ‘No, no. He’d never do a faith-based movie.’ There was definitely some of that,” says Roth.

    Refugee conditions in Greece ‘deteriorating’, says Angelina Jolie (VIDEO) -
    =================================================
    ATHENS, March 17 — Hollywood star and UNHCR goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie turned the spotlight of celebrity yesterday onto the plight of thousands of refugees crowded in camps in Greece.

    After visiting a makeshift camp in the port of Piraeus, Jolie said the refugees were stuck in a “deteriorating humanitarian situation” and needed help.

    The 40-year-old actress, dressed in a black T-shirt and trousers, spent around 30 minutes at the port, speaking to UN staff and refugees coming to Piraeus from the islands facing Turkey.

    Some 4,000 people are packed in terminals and tents there. They are just a fraction of the number of people who are stranded in Greece after the so-called migrant trail, heading from the Balkans up to northern Europe, was closed off by national border controls.

    Surrounded by a throng of media, Jolie had difficulty in reaching her car through the crowd but kept her composure as photographers and camera crews jostled for position and refugee children struggled to stay upright.

    “Watch the kids,” she told her security detail.

    As she left, dozens of refugees chanted “Skopje, open the borders” in a reference to Macedonia who last week barred passage to all war and poverty exiles, a policy followed by other Balkan states.

    Jolie will also be in Greece today, but her programme has not been announced and it’s unclear whether she will travel to the north of the country, where conditions are worse.

    “I look forward to meeting authorities, partners and volunteers working on the ground to improve conditions and ensure the vulnerable are protected,” she said in a statement about her trip.

    “I hope the presence of Angelina Jolie will do something to help open the border,” said Bichal, a 23-year-old Syrian woman from Aleppo.

    “I’ve been in Greece for a month and I’m still waiting to cross the border and go to Germany,” she told AFP.

    Jolie subsequently drove to the camp of Eleonas in Athens which currently houses some 700 people awaiting relocation, visiting families in prefabricated homes.

    She then met with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who told her there were “30,000 people trapped in the Greek mainland because of unilateral actions by the countries on the Balkan route.”

    Overall there are over 43,000 people in the Greek mainland and on the islands.

    On Monday, some 1,500 refugees walked out of the Greek frontier camp of Idomeni, where over 14,000 people are languishing in squalid conditions, and tried to walk into Macedonia through an unfenced part of the border.

    They were stopped by troops and returned to Greece a day later, some of them claiming to have been mistreated by Macedonian border guards.

    The border shutdown has been criticised by Germany but has been applauded by EU President Donald Tusk as part of a “comprehensive” EU strategy to deal with Europe’s worst migration crisis since the Second World War.

    The EU is pinning its hopes for a solution to the crisis on a summit with Turkey, which is hosting over two million refugees and has permitted another million to sail to Greece, today. — AFP

    I’m doing the Cabbage Patch dance today, we’ve got a day off from practice. Woo Hoo!!!!

    I never realized what I was getting myself into when I agreed to help. But, it’s fun, and the girls are all sweet, and so eager to do well, it’s going to break my heart when some are not going to be chosen next week.

    Doesn’t Angie look good, I’m so proud of her, and you know Brad and their kids are all looking at the pictures of Mommy being surrounded by a throng of people wanting to get close to her.

    I’m sure Brad must be worried sick, I bet he has some of his own body guards over there with her, along with the security the UNHCR provides for her.

    Woo hoo! Indeed! Go for it! I hope the girls all know the Cabbage Patch.
    Yes, it is sad, for every winner, there is someone that has to lose – sad only in good cases, not ones like the nasty Republican’t chaos.

    When I was in grade school, our Catholic school had from first to 8th grade. Well for the football team, the 8th and 7th grade girls would try out – unfortunately, the 8th grade was always chosen, even if the 7th grade was much better.
    Sigh, that’s the only reason I was a cheerleader for one year. We knew we sucked and that the better team hadn’t won. Why even hold auditions, if the winner is already fixed? That was a bad one.

    With ‘The Catch,’ Mireille Enos Takes a Break From the Bleak
    ===================================================
    As for the actor who makes a three-episode appearance as Alice’s colleague’s soon-to-be ex, that would be Alan Ruck (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), Ms. Enos’s husband of eight years and her favorite reality check.

    “I’d been whining to him, ‘I can’t seem to crack the film thing,’ ” Ms. Enos said, remembering a period a couple of years ago where she was landing television roles, but her big-screen career consisted mostly of ancillary characters. “Then my first big movie was playing Brad Pitt’s wife in this giant tent pole [“World War Z”]. And he was like, ‘I don’t want to hear another word out of you.’”

    I’m still speechless for various reasons.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    Hey, it takes her seven hours to make dolmades (grape leaves stuffed with vegetables) and spanakopita (spinach pie made with filo dough and spinach/cheese)…..so when she’s done making that, then she’ll go out and help her countrymen.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    I saw that. Man is that an ugly dress, ugly veil…just ugly. And I do not understand the separating the men and women…..at a freaking wedding.

  • Phool

    Part of their religious orthodox culture. I know the sexes segregation is also in other religious cultures too.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    IDK, I think if they made “Christian” films that were actually interesting, more of the general public would go. No matter my religious beliefs, I don’t want to go to the movies to see faux drama about how for two minutes this amazing Christian supermom’s faith failed and cursed/questioned God, and then two minutes later when she realizes how stupid she was, something good/a miracle happened. Yea, no.

    I just watched the Book of Ruth (or maybe just called “Ruth”?)…it was a movie from the fifties, and it was really interesting. I know the story well, and they basically bastardized it from the Bible–but the key story was there i.e. a woman who left everything she knew to follow a family and an unknown god. But there was DRAMA and CHARACTERIZATION. It didn’t come off as a shill for the Southern Baptist Convention or whatever.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    Oh I know–I just find it weird/strange. It’s insulting, imo, to both men and women, and creates a man child mentality, imo. Josh Duggar, anyone?

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    Lol. Well she’s not half wrong. When she starts getting starring/key roles in films then I’d say she cracked it.

  • Phool

    Every faith has its extreme side too,it is what it is.

  • http://thecompletehistoryofbradandangelina.blogspot.com/ Lady Valeria

    Ugh. She makes me twitch when she starts with that mess. It does NOT take seven hours to make the stuff she said. And the dishes she specifically mentioned…..are basically appetizers. Unless she was making enough for 200 people….I can see 7 hours. But no. Making pie dough (filo), sauteeing vegetables/rice, and mixing together spinach and various cheeses does not take all day.

  • hotmess

    She was great in the Killing. Not sure why it was cancelled by AMC. Hopefully the Catch will be good, she’s a pretty good actress.
