The new partnership is aimed at working on issues that range from women’s rights to refugee issues, health, education, international justice, and violence against women.

“We have been officially working together for a year and are very much looking forward to continuing our joint efforts on our shared international interests,” Angelina told People.

Together the women have visited the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands and visited Myanmar at election time, among many other humanitarian efforts.

  • The truth

    Wow, go Angie! See, Brad knew what he was doing 11 years ago…

  • The truth

    Bringing this from the old thread

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

    Exactly. Fans shouldn’t worry about what critics are saying about Julia… She will be fine. Maniston, however, will continue to be cast in ensemble failures with a bunch of other wannabe comediennes. Please call me when maniston is cast in a movie with Tina fey, Sandra bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Until then..

    Oh, how many people are they going to add to this drek? They brought on that fat dike from Chelsea Lately… Jesus

    Oh my goodness I really don’t know how Angelina does it all in a day, every day. She is just amazing. I’m so proud to be her fan.

  • Dawne

    I emailed Jared and asked for a thread on Angie being number one admired woman globally again in 2016………….crickets………..but I want you to know we have the Kslut arriving home from Cuba…after another exhausting trip having her makeup done and squeezing into spandex. No one posts there but thread after thread about NOTHING but her shallow ass half naked ….. and CNN has a link up to her bro getting his current hobag preggers. I am so sick of celeb news overtaking real news and interest stories about real people making real contributions. We are force fed the Trumps and Kardashians until I want to nuke the whole lot.

  • ali7

    Tabloids always late they should’ve read the New York Time interview she did when promoting BTS in that interview she announced this partnership that time

  • Dawne

    Didn’t make news cause she had clothes on.

  • toastie postie

    Maybe tomorrow for Mother’s day. Though I doubt it. He must be getting big bucks from JA. What’s going to happen when her money is gone? It’s expensive paying for 2 guys. Plus her own hanger-ons. Like Hair guy.

  • busted

    Why even deny something no one cares about nor were they even talking about it. Seriously they need to Stop. They should spend that time trying to find her a good script.

  • ali7

    It just sad that people are just interested a naked woman

  • bap

    Funny but accurate.

  • busted

    Regarding the Kardashians in Cuba.. I don’t think that got as much coverage as they were hoping. I know the Dailyfail had pics but I didn’t see a lot of major outlets talking about them over there. I remember when Kim was married to that Kris guy. and he said something to her that when she has a couple of kids people are not going to be that interested in her anymore. I remember the look on her face. To some degree I think that is true. Kim is being overshadowed by her younger sisters. She can post all the nude pics she wants. But everyone has seen it all before. She needs to reinvent herself. Because I just think the tight cloths and selfies are OLD news.

  • Dawne

    Our western culture seems to have prolapsed into voyeurism, greed and gluttony………… the fast food joints took over normal eating and turned everyone into carb and grease junkies and the Fifth Estate has turned us into catatonic junkies for all things Peep Show……….the brain………..well, it is nutritionally and intellectually starving.

  • bap

    Maybe Angelina, Dalton, Helic and Cate will attend.

    The world is witnessing the highest level of human suffering since the Second World War. This is why, for the first time in the 70-year history of the United Nations, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has convened the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul on 23 -24 May. Source:
    UN website.

  • bap

    We are more selfish than we have ever been as a society, Individualistic behavior out weighs everything. Morals and values are thrown out the window.

  • wika

    LOL so true. She’s becoming more irrelevant as the days pass. Even Rob K is getting more coverage these days LOL

  • bap

    Good.

  • bap

    Does anyone know when Ban Ki Moon is stepping down as UN Secretary?

  • busted

    I think this is his last year of his 5 year term.

  • hotmess

    Isn’t that around Shiloh;s birthday? If so, doubt AJ will attend. Shiloh will be a whole 10 years old this year;)

  • bap

    Thank you Busted!

  • bap

    27TH of May is her Birthday.

    Hello everyone (Jolie-Pitt fans, that is). Finally a thread about Angie’s important work with her partners. She’s such a woman of substance.. So proud to be her fan.

  • lucy

    I saw this yesterday on People com. but didn’t comment so the trolls would stay away as long as possible.

    Angie has been busy in London, she’s just been keeping a low profile. So proud of her and all the women involved in this collaboration.

  • lucy

    Maybe if she had her butt implants removed, she’d get some publicity. LMAO

  • lucy

    Any day a Kartrashian is ignored, is a good news day.

  • lucy

    Maybe I’m just stupid, but what is the “Fifth Estate”?????

  • lucy

    As a Mother, it’s very scary.

  • busted

    Hey lucy..

    I haven’t seen you posting.. good to see you back or I missed your post LOL

  • lucy

    I’ve been posting, just sporadically. It’s May, getting close to end of the school year, and as any Mother knows there’s a lot going on. I’m still trying to keep up as much as possible, really happy to see we had Brad threads, and now an Angie thread. All we need now is a picture of Brad and Angie together, preferably the whole family, but I’m not greedy. lol

  • lucy

    Obviously not. LOL

  • lucy

    She’s probably dipping into capital by now. She may end up like her Mother.

    Angelina Jolie PITT Opens Up About New Humanitarian Partnership

  • Bumble

  • Bumble

  • busted

    Yes; especially when the article their partnership is called
    Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic.

  • Bumble
  • Bumble

    Someone on the JJ team is shady always making a point of leaving out Pitt from Angelina Jolie Pitts legal name. Its the name she goes by since she MARRIED BRAD , its the name she goes by day 1 for her humanitarian, acting and daily life, so why is it difficult for some to accept it and address her by her real legal married name..rant over.

  • Bumble

    JJ If you are going to take the news from People Magazine then report it the way it is fuckers…

    All About Angelina Jolie Pitt’s New Partnership

    If directing, acting, being married to Brad Pitt – and oh yeah, raising six kids – isn’t enough, Angelina Jolie Pitt’s schedule is getting even busier.

    The longtime Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency has been expanding her humanitarian work thanks to a partnership with two British foreign policy experts, Chloe Dalton and Arminka Helic, who she first collaborated with four years ago while working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, to end war zone rape.

    Since then, the trio have set up a partnership – called Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic – to work on issues ranging from women’s rights to refugee issues, health, education, international justice, and violence against women. “We have been officially working together for a year and are very much looking forward to continuing our joint efforts on our shared international interests,” Jolie Pitt tells PEOPLE.

    Bosnian-born Helic, who was a Special Adviser to former U.K. Foreign Minister William Hague, was made nominated to the House of Lords and named a Baroness in 2014. Dalton was most recently Special Adviser to the U.K. Foreign Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    Last month the three women visited the International Criminal Court in the Hague, where Helic is a member of the Board of Directors of the Trust Fund for Victims.

    In March, Jolie Pitt returned to Lebanon, where she reunited with teenage Syrian refugee Hala, who befriended her daughter Shiloh during a 2015 trip to the refugee camp in the Bekka Valley.

    Prior to that, Jolie Pitt, Helic and Dalton traveled to Burma ahead of he country’s national elections, where Jolie Pitt joined leader Aung San Suu Kyi on the campaign trail and talked to members of the Burmese Army about sexual violence in conflict areas.

    Next up is a visit to the BBC in London on May 16 as part of a day of events to find solutions to the global refugee crisis, where Jolie Pitt will deliver the keynote speech.

    That wide load is getting wider by the minute.

    You are not alone – I had to look it up. :0)

    The Fifth Estate is a socio-cultural reference to groupings of outlier viewpoints in contemporary society, and is most associated with bloggers, journalists, and non-mainstream media outlets. The “Fifth” Estate extends the sequence of the three classical Estates of the Realm and the preceding Fourth Estate, essentially the mainstream press.

    He’s going to age so quickly, that soon I’ll have to call him Granny Huvy.

  • lucy

    Maybe it might butt hurt poor fat Tic, after all it’s only been almost 12 years, and at least a dozen lovers since Brad ground his boots into her face in his haste to get away from her. LOL

  • lucy

    It’s looking really strange, even more so than usual. Where are the good ole days, a decade ago, when women just wanted cute, pert behinds. lol

    Hey Toastie -

    Thought you’d get a kick out of this – some conservatives are trying to talk Mitt Romney into running as an independent. Looks like a big fat SOS…
