Angelina Jolie Steps Out for 'Jane' Premiere Ahead of Releasing Harvey Weinstein Statement

Angelina Jolie Steps Out for 'Jane' Premiere Ahead of Releasing Harvey Weinstein Statement

Angelina Jolie flashes a big smile alongside Dr. Jane Goodall and Courteney Monroe, CEO National Geographic Global Networks, ahead of the premiere of National Geographic documentary films’ Jane held at the Hollywood Bowl on Monday (October 9) in Hollywood.

Jane, which hits theaters on October 20, is the story of how Jane Goodall became Jane Goodall – using footage shot by future husband Hugo van Lawick of her first experiences in Gombe, Tanzinia in the 1960’s.

Previously thought to be lost forever, the footage was only recently discovered in a storage unit, and has been now masterfully intercut with interviews of present day Jane Goodall to provide an in-depth portrait of her life.

Angelina showed her support for the documentary just hours before coming forward as a victim of Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual harassment allegations, as well as his new rape allegations which came to light today.

    Looking beautiful and serene, Ms. Angelina.

  • cee

    If you have ever been to the Hollywood Bowl it is very cold. So layoff. She looks amazing as always and happy to see her supporting her friend Jane.

  • forest4trees

    A coat ……

  • loff

    She looks lovely . I love her friendship with Jane.

  • loff

    Thank’s for educating, I guess for some people this is the first time they have seen a coat.

  • toastie postie

    Thanks needed some fresh air after all the nasty news in Hollywood about the pig HW.

  • loff

    Jane and Angelina look good. And yes we need a change of subject and fresh air.

  • bap

    Lol!

  • bap

    I like your answer.

  • Beedyq

    JJ is late, some of us commented on this hours ago LOL.

    Knew Angie would be there when I read about this premiere yesterday. She and Jane are great friends for many years.

    Happy that Nat Geo made this documentary about an amazing woman and her work.

  • Beedyq

    Most definitely needed this 😘

  • toastie postie

    I wonder if she got to see her at TIFF. I know Jane had a screening right before The Breadwinner. Angie was late to it, so I wonder if she went to Jane’s 1st.

  • Beedyq

    LMAO.

  • Beedyq
  • loff

    Praying for all.

  • ahli cake

    It’s spelled Tanzania.

  • toastie postie

    Wow!

  • loff

    LOL your’e not supposed to call out the stupid moderators for not doing their research and spelling Tanzania correctly.

  • Beedyq

    LV thanks for this pic, the coats look identical to me.

    Angie is a recycler of her clothes so it certainly could be the same one.

  • loff

    Well she is poor now so she has to recycle.

  • Beedyq

    LOL

    I forgot about that.

  • ali7

    Damn it Ava tweet

    Hollywood figures were unaware of Weinstein harassment allegations?! Look at this joke from the Oscar nominations, of all events, in 2013.

  • Beck

    lipstick!!!

  • toastie postie

    Ugh. I was just speaking of that one with a friend. Another reason not to like her.

  • toastie postie

    A great response to those criticizing Angie and others for not speaking up – blaming the victim – and believe me twitter has exploded with this – of course going after Angie especially.

    No one calling Pitt out for working with TWC twice because he was desperate for some gold trinkets.

    It is a great coat. She always picks the most amazing boots, coats, and damn jewelry.

    Oh Lord Ava girl. WTF? How dumb do you have to be to tweet that shit? Just say you admire his career, if anything. WTF WTF

  • http://www.amazon.com/Aubrey-Anderson/e/B01BHC8VMI/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1466893529&sr=8-1 Lady Valeria

    Hahahaha!

  • toastie postie

    You know, I can’t imagine Brad didn’t tell Clowney or Matt about Pigstein. No way they didn’t know.

  • Las

    But what would it change? Brad knew and still chose to work with him.

  • Beck

    Really? I don’t think he would have told them Gwenyth’s story or Angie’s story, it wasn’t his story to tell. I can imagine him vaguely saying ‘He’s not a good guy’ etc to them, but no specifics. And that would probably fall under what Clooney was saying about how there was always talk, but no specifics of harassment, or ‘rumors’. Of course, that’s kind of flimsy because where there’s that much smoke for decades, there is fire. But I don’t think Brad would have said anything concrete/named names to him.

  • toastie postie

    Wouldn’t he have wanted any close female friends of either of those guys to be wary of the guy?

  • plez

    Everyone in Hollywood knew. Just like everyone at Fox News knew. Just like everyone at Google knew. Just like everyone around Trump knew. People don’t know what to do if a victim won’t go public.
    In the NFL everyone knew that football player punched his wife. But people did not care until they actually saw the video. Publicly showing she was a victim. Then there was outrage.
    Social media can play the blame game and feel superior to those involved but when this story dies will anything have changed. I fear not.

  • ali7

    Lol whatever Brad told anyone or not is not the story the fact is they all knew for example the story I posted down the thread. They (Hollywood) kept silent as GP said she was expect to stay quiet. Hollywood is complicit I have to say this because is true.

  • ali7

    🙌🙌🙌

  • Beck

    Sure, but again, I think he would have told them to be wary in a general way. I can’t see him ‘outing’ something so private about Angie or Gwenyth. I would never tell someone else about my friend having been raped if it wasn’t publicly known. I would see that as a betrayal of trust and would just say to avoid the rapist because he was bad news, no details.

  • loff

    They all knew and many more, but I guess they all were fearful of Harvey’s power and what he could do to them all. The hypocrisy is many still worked with him despite what he did.

  • toastie postie

    It’s just how can they lie like that saying they didn’t know.

    Colin Firth calls Harvey Weinstein ‘a frightening man to stand up to’
    https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/oct/10/colin-firth-harvey-weinstein-kings-speech-sexual-harassment-claims

  • loff

    One by one all are coming out and you can see no one can say they didn’t know , look at all these people everyone knew and heard yet chose not to do anything.

  • loff

    Of course he did once he got his Oscar for Kings Speech
    via Harvey.Now Colin can say anything, little too late.

  • Ellin

    Weird, that he defended Gwyneth, but never Angelina or especially his son. Maddox was thrown under the bus for what happened on that plane.

  • bap

    Perhaps he considers this positive press for him.

  • loff

    Brads a very private man, I guess he did not want to tell his friends of what happend with him , Paltrow and Harvey as in his eyes it was a private matter between them only.

  • loff

    People are forgetting 20 years ago Angelina like other actresses in her position at that time she also was a new actress just getting on the ladder, she was same age as others and just as in the same vulnerable position as others for Harvey to abuse and manipulate,so its wrong for people to single her out on it just because she is more famous now than when she started . But I guess same will be said about Paltrow who chose to still carry on working for Harvey despite what he did and said to her. Sadly men always get a pass.
