Angelina Jolie took the stage at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Women In Entertainment Breakfast held at Milk Studios on Wednesday (December 6) in Los Angeles.

During her speech, the actress, director, and humanitarian spoke about gender equality on not only a domestic level, but on an international level.

“There is so much we have to change and fight for..but we don’t have to think the film we made…political joke we made onstage will land us in prison,” Angelina said. “We must continue fighting so that others one day will have the freedoms we have.”

    Is that Shonda Rhimes next to Angie? Looks like Glenn Close in the foreground…

  • Felinelilly

    I remember how nervous Angelina sounded while giving her first speech at her sexual violence summit in England, she’s gotten better and better with public speaking. I personally despise public speaking, I’m too shy for it so I have nothing but respect for anyone who gets up to make a speech.

    Take care

  • Lesley Starkey

    Yes and yes.

  • bap

    What can I say Brilliant.

  • toastie postie

    The same here. Voice would shake, hands holding paper would shake. When I decided, after I got married and youngest was 5, to become a referee and substitute teacher, one of my kids couldn’t believe it. But mom…But I did it and did it well.

  • bap

    Good for you TP!

    I hated Speech in HS or when we had to say poems or other things in English, in front of the class. I tried all kinds of ways to get out of it in English – like my voice was sore, couldn’t talk. Didn’t fool the teacher. In Speech, when I could, I did a humorous Speech – that got me and the class relaxed.

  • ali7

    I was pretty bad doing presentations at Uni.

    Zimbio, the forgotten site, you remembered to check there. LOL!
    Hi and thanks.

  • LetMeTranslate

    Excellent TP! I’m not nervous about giving speeches since I am well aware 99% of people are either daydreaming, bored, just there for freebies or were forced to be there LOL.

    I’m most worried about presentations to close a deal. That’s the pressure.

    it’s the most wonderful time of the year: #THRWomen! star-studded seating chart: @BeersBetsy, @shondarhimes and Angelina Jolie

  • kflyer

    I wonder how the seating came about?.interesting
    table since angie humanitarian work was slighted as PR in a scandal
    episode.Smh still at that line.Disappointed as a shondaland fan.

  • toastie postie

    Oh Lordy. Glad I never had to do that! For sadly, sometimes I’d rush the speech and leave out things. Like my poor daughter’s part in a Girl Scout program.😔😔😔had to be reminded – I just wanted off the stage.

  • LetMeTranslate

    They’re super happy that you’re there and you made a speech, surely

  • toastie postie

    Hiya! You are welcome. Yes, and they are a very good site for excellent pictures.

  • Felinelilly

    Same for me, my legs are jelly when/if I have to speak in front of a group. Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone. I could have done refereeing because I love sports but never a substitute teacher.

  • plez

    Angelina looks good. Love hair especially.

  • lyric

    I used to have to do presentations for the Community Reinvestment Act (for my employer) at schools and colleges. I learned to walk back and forth as I spoke and that somehow took my mind off how nervous I was. It did get easier the more I did.

  • cafeast

    When will this bitch finally drop the baby weight? Those arms are wobbly. Obesity is such a huge problem, she has grown girthy. Terrible example for young girls. She needs to drop a solid 30 lbs.
    btw, her tits look tiny here.
    Did she get the silicone removed or smthing? They were quite large until recently.

  • toastie postie

    I was scared and often thought, what are you doing!!! The referee work was hard but I loved soccer.
    Being a sub can be treacherous, so I always had bribes…er…rewards for good behavior; so I became a popular sub and kids didn’t play tricks on me(much). Except when they were cretins in on school suspension – there you didn’t turn your back on them.

  • Felinelilly

    Yeah just the thought of having to speak in front of a group of people makes me anxious. The only time I actually wanted to speak was in 3rd grade because my little 8-year-old heart was in love with my teacher. LOL He gave us poems to learn, we had a choice between a short one, a medium length poem or a long one. We had to recite it in front of the class once we learned our poem. All I wanted to do was impress my teacher so I chose the long poem. My legs were shaking like crazy while I was reciting it but I got through it and got my A+ from him. LOL

  • toastie postie

    Again, oh Lordy! Perhaps it got easier for me, since I was dealing with the youth. Don’t know if I could have constantly done what you did. Like Felinelilly, my jelly legs might have given out on me.😆😆😆Brave, Lyric, brave.

  • toastie postie

    Wow. 3rd grade? I’m trying to remember if we had to do anything like that? A lot of years to go back to. Hmm. Don’t think 3rd – maybe 4th and doing plays.

  • LetMeTranslate

    I love teachers! You have to be a saint to be a teacher in my books

  • cafeast

    We get it : YOU ARE A MOM, YOU HAVE CHILDREN THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS.
    Jesus, does this bitch talk about anything else nowadays? Congrats you have kids. So do BILLIONS OF OTHER PPL AROUND THE WORLD. It not something that rare or esoteric or admirable.

  • Felinelilly

    Yeah, 3rd grade. I had the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade, I didn’t really like her and I think it was mutual on her part, and then the universe made it up to me in 3rd grade. LOL I’m kidding. But yeah I learned at 8 years old that love gives you wings. lol Because I got up there to speak even though I was deathly shy then. I wouldn’t have done a play though. My mom tried signing me up for theater classes to help me get over my shyness, I hated it and stopped going after 3 classes.

  • lyric

    You would be surprised at what you can do when your employer tells you that you are going to be the one to do it. My colleagues would tell me that while I spoke well the part of my skirt between my knees would be fluttering. That’s another reason why I learned to walk when I spoke.

  • gg

    After 16 years, people still think her humanitarian work is for PR? SMDH!

  • toastie postie

    Well I certainly appreciated them a lot more. I mean even if I was doing a 6 week assignment with the same class, I knew that there was a light at the end of the tunnel when I would no longer have to face Johnny Jerk in 6th grade or Loudmouth Larry in 3rd grade. Girls were rarely a problem – except some were snooty to other girls.
    I would think, how do these teachers face these kids daily for months and then have to go home to their own kids with a happy spirit? Kudos to them.
    Then the money they spent out of their own pockets for their students. I did the same as the years went by and I mostly stayed at one school and grew to love so many of the kids and teachers. They are so underpaid.
    My husband would shake his head when he would see me staying up late, grading papers and placing grades in each classes’ files – from 4th to 6th grade the teachers were teaching about a hundred kids divided up in 5 classes, so they had to keep 5 sets of records. Then planning the class for the next day, getting prepared for it, etc. Just so much is done by teachers at home. That 30mins to 60mins. conference time each day at school is just not enough if you want to be a good teacher. So yes, I came to appreciate them so much.
