    Angelina Jolie a professor? LOL

  • Seriously
  • Indes

    Why should anybody listen to her? From what I know she barely made it through high school and her humanitarian trips are nothing more than photo opportunities. She flies to Iraq, Syria and so on, gets her photos taken and then flies back home.

    You’re one of those deranged delusional Angeloonies.

  • Seriously

    Yep, this one wrote she will buy Whorelina’s perfume because she wants to smell like her. No wonder her husband cheated on her, cee’s nuts.

    When you look at new pics of her, one could think she gained some weight but she only had Botox and filler injections. She’s still skeletal.

  • juliet

    Not my fault that this idiot starves herself.

  • t.m.delafonda

    It never ceases to amaze me the amount of hatred she receives from other women. I find that to be ironic when one would think that women as a whole should be supportive of a person who defends ALL people (especially women) against the atrocities of war. I think that speaks a lot about the person who makes the criticism. I am not advocating that one join her fan base, just that if you cannot support her efforts, at least, not comment. It makes the hater look weak…. and, jealous.

  • t.m.delafonda

    No. It is just your fault that you are so jealous of her NATURAL beauty that you comment on someone you obviously dislike instead of living your OWN life.

  • bap

    Angelina is Soaring! Without the medias help.

  • t.m.delafonda

    Yeah, you are

  • juliet

    Natural beauty? Hilarious. This idiot hat so many filler injections that her cheeks are about to burst.

  • juliet

    Go and swallow her heroin-perfume.

    You would know about that but please keep the relationship of you and your father to yourself.

  • t.m.delafonda

    LOL

  • t.m.delafonda

    I am pretty sure that a photo ops can be taken in much safer environments than Iraq an Syria.

  • lyric

    That’s because the haters are weak and jealous. Confident women admire Angie and support her in her quest for women’s rights. I sure do but I’m also a fan so there’s that.

    Professor Jolie: Angelina Gives Her First Lecture on Women’s Rights at LSE Ahead of Master’s Class Teaching Stint

    Angelina Jolie just got a first taste of the teaching life.

    The filmmaker and activist, 41, gave a lecture at the London School of Economics Tuesday morning at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security, PEOPLE confirms. It is the same place where Jolie, as a visiting professor, will start teaching a master’s course in September on the same subject.

    Jolie’s lecture focused on women’s rights in the context of refugee camps, and how displacement and statelessness makes women and girls vulnerable to sexual violence and other crimes. The class also discussed the connection between the field and the policy work that is being done by governments, as well as the current state of women’s rights.
    “Angelina Jolie spoke to a class of students taking the postgraduate course ‘Women, Peace and Security,’ as part of her role as visiting professor in practice in the Centre for Women, Peace and Security,” a spokesperson for LSE tells PEOPLE. “Miss Jolie spoke about her experience and what has motivated her work as UNHCR special envoy and as co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and took questions from the class.”

    The subject ties into with her work with the initiative, which she helped launch in 2012 with the help of then-British Foreign Office Chair William Hague. The two subsequently opened the Centre for Women, Peace and Security in 2015, with Jolie later signing on to teach a course.

    Jolie reunited with Lord Hague Monday morning in London, where she spoke on the fifth anniversary of the initiative at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    “When this kind of violence and abuse happens in peacetime, we are absolutely clear it is a crime that deserves to be punished by law,” Jolie exclusively told PEOPLE about expanding the initiative to focus on bringing perpetrators of sexual violence to justice. “But when it happens in the middle of a conflict, on a mass scale, with such brutal violence, it is treated as something impossible to prevent or somehow justified by the climate of war.”
    Beginning in September and through May 2018, Jolie will teach 9-month course on the matter, focusing on “the ways in which women and gender are understood in relation to, and affected by, regional, national and global peace and security processes in conflict and post-conflict setting,” according to the school’s website.

    Yet your fellow pit fans didn’t think she would be able to do it.

    Directors want to work with her tho. She’s like so anti Hollywood that they want her. That’s why she’s liked.

    LOL! Don’t feed the trolls :) — they’re seething at the bit because Angie’s still doing her thing, no mind to the tabs and the hate. All the BS comments from the haters … white noise from so many bitter hens. I’ll go check out her Mon Guerlain commercial again for the 11,000th time on YouTube.
