Angelina Jolie Meets Children at Syrian Refugees Camp

Angelina Jolie shakes the hand of a young boy while visiting a Syrian refugees camp on Friday (September 9) in Azraq, Jordan.

The 41-year-old actress gave a speech at the camp urging leaders from around the world “to ask the fundamental question of what are the root causes of the Syrian conflict and what it would take to end it.”

“This is not a problem of Jordan’s making, or that Jordan should be left to bear alone. Jordan has been warning for years that they could reach a point where they on their own could do no more. The world has known about the situation here for months but no solution has been put forward,” Angelina said. “Refugees want to know when can they get back to their home, they don’t want to be passive recipients of aid, they want a political solution.”

    Just luv her, she is so totally dedicated. On a shallow note, she remains one of the most beautiful women in the world at 41. No makeup, no selfies, just born beautiful with the most luminous skin ever.

    Mrs. Angelina Jolie Pitt. Always out there trying to assist humanity in whatever way she can, while remaining humble and never taking credit for what she does, acknowledges that it has to be a joint effort.

    You’re welcome!

    One of the main reasons I posted this article is because it proves that Angie walks her talk – and there was no physical affair with Brad the way the hens and haters love to believe. Looking back at it 12 years later she was clear and decisive – none of the crap the tablioid claimed about her was true – and she didn’t whine about the tabloids claiming she was sleeping with a bunch of people that she wasn’t. it was what it was. To this day she’s never whined about the over 7 years in ridiculous stories in EVERY one of the 6 weekly tabloids – I didn’t count Peeps because they can be bought, everybody knows that.

    Another reason I posted it – not too long after this interview came out US Lies Weakly claimed she and BBT were getting back together…yet Angie made it clear that could never happen because they simply wanted different things and she was NOT going to compromise on what she wanted and BBT was never going to change because it took him out of his comfort zone. He’s got more phobias than hair – and I mean his real hair not those awful toupees she’s always wearing.

    The other reason I posted the article was – well, it’s a damned good read and I was stuck by the fact that although Angie still says what’s on her mind she’s more cautious about it because she’s got kid sto protect. But beginning to end – she’s always told the same story and denied all the hookups people claimed she was having with celebs – but at the same time admitted there were men she was lovers with, just not the ones gossips were proclaiming. I found another story where she said something like, “Brad Pitt, Colin Farrell, Ethan Hawke and Jared Leto are my friends not my lovers. We’re great friends, but nothing is going on.”

    Thanks so much PT!! Wow what a great, insightful interview. Both parts. I had heard about this interview and saw a few comments and conversations about it here, but I’d never read it in Angie’s own words. Now, this connects the time in her life right before she and Brad got together, to when they got together and it completes their love story for me.

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

    It doesn’t really complete the love story for me, but it tells you where HER head was at. She really didn’t think there was happy ending waiting for her because of the life she wanted to live. She didn’t want to thrust anybody outside of showbiz into the harsh media glare that comes with fame and yet she didn’t think she’d find someone IN showbiz who’d be comfortable with all of her traveling and humanitarian interests. It shows that she really wasn’t “after Brad” and wasn’t plotting to “steal” him from Ticky. She later said in the Jan 2007 Vogue that it wasn’t until the end of the shoot that she realized that there was something there between her and Brad. She did this interview in early August 2004. They didn’t go to Italy for the final shoot until October. Ticky said she knew the marriage dead as a doornail after she returned from Italy in June 2004. She also said she and Brad talked for a really long time about what they both wanted out of life. In Dec 2004 US was claiming to have discovered that one of her “hotel lovers” she said she had when she said she had lovers and didn’t need Brad was an Italian millionaire businessman. That takes you up to Brad dumping the dead end in January 2005 – and going after Angie like a heat-seeking missile when she returned to the U.S. in early February 2004. So, sorry hens, trolls and haters – your “man-stealinghomewrecker” math don’t add up.

    The Exact Moment Amal Clooney Realized She Settled
    Last Friday, international lawyer Amal Clooney was forced to take some time away from representing Yazidi genocide victims to go for a ride on her husband’s Harley Davidson motorcycle. George Clooney, former TV doctor and current trophy husband, wore dad jeans, three-day stubble, and the devil-may-care look of a man who has plenty of time to pursue new hobbies. Amal wore Stella McCartney wedges and a look of abject despair. They both wore helmets, because safety comes first.

    “Over half of all refugees in Jordan are under 18. My own children are of that age” -Angelina Jolie @MiamiHerald

  • Bumble

    Angelina Jolie Pitt says it’s ‘impossible’ for parents not to feel pain of refugee children

    Angelina Jolie Pitt has six children of her own, and can’t help but picture what it would be like to be forced to flee with her family for their lives.

    “Over half of all refugees in Jordan are under 18. My own children are of that age,” Jolie Pitt said Friday at Azraq Refugee Camp, a U.N. facility in Jordan for refugees of Syria’s civil war. “Like any other parent, it is impossible for me not to imagine what it would be like for my own children in this situation.”

    The actress, who serves as a special envoy for the U.N.’s refugee agency, or UNHCR, visited the camp for the fourth time to highlight the plight of the millions who have fled Syria.

    Jolie Pitt described meeting a 13-year-old boy who bore scars from a barrel bomb, and a family who fled Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State group in Syria. She said the family moved 20 times within Syria while the mother suffered multiple miscarriages and family members were killed in airstrikes.

    Jordan has been overwhelmed by the flow of people seeking refuge since the war began in 2011. As boatloads of people crossing the Mediterranean to seek refuge in Europe make international headlines, Syria’s neighbors have been mostly silent as they deal with the influx of refugees.

    Jordan is estimated to be hosting most than 1 million refugees that now comprise approximately 10 percent of its total population. Jolie Pitt thanked the country for its “moral leadership” on the issue.

    “You have given your all to helping your Syrian neighbors, from the earliest days of the conflict,” Jolie Pitt said. “You did so knowing that it would be extremely difficult, and that the war could last for years, and with huge demands on your resources and services in your communities already.”

    Jolie Pitt has served as envoy for the UNHCR, which seeks to bring international attention to the plight of Syrians and other refugees from around the world, since 2012. Jolie Pitt, who is married to actor Brad Pitt, has adopted children from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam. The couple also has three biological children.

    She worked with UNHCR as a goodwill ambassador on the issue of refugees for over 10 years before being named special envoy. Jolie Pitt said the world needs to increase its financial contributions to the cause, as aid organizations have only half of the funds they need to serve those in need.

    “The gulf between our responsibilities and our actions has never been so wide,” Jolie Pitt said. “For all the good intentions, extraordinary efforts in the field, and the generosity of host communities, it is impossible to say that we, as an international community, are using all the tools at our disposal, or that we have even come close to doing enough to help the Syrian people.”
