    Default Angelina Jolie takes Mother Teresa act to Afghanistan

    How coincidental that this trip occurs the same week her movie is released

    UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie made her first post-twin trip to Afghanistan earlier this week to appeal for more support for refugees who are returning home.
    Watch the above footage (courtesy of Entertainment Tonight) as she documents her trip, which ran from Tuesday to Thursday.
    At one point, she gets choked up after witnessing the refugees' poor living conditions.
    "When you ask them what they need, they just smile and say, 'Everything,'" Jolie narrates. "They have suffered so much, and yet the Afghan people remain, gracious, open. They have a quiet dignity."

    very interesting video. now THIS is where angelina should focus her attention. quit having kid after kid, and adopting. here she's actually doing some good. it breaks my heart to see those people suffering.

    on another note, they should teach the Afghan people some sort of birth control.

    Never ever believe in coincidences.

    Why are there always cameras around when she does the charity work and press releases when she donates?

    No one knew she had gone until UNHCR released the video. The sole purpose of these trips sanctioned by UNHCR is to bring attention to the plight of these people.

    As I always say,I don't care if she does it for the attention or not, at least she's doing something.

    yep


    Angelina Jolie was in a boat with a few people, suddenly one of the oars falls overboard, Angelina walks out on the water and retrieves the oar. In the media the next day "Angelina Jolie can't swim"

    ^^ the above was a joke no I do not think AJ can walk on water.

    What does touring a refugee camp, posing with children and sick people while looking sad for the cameras (before retiring to her 5-star hotel) accomplish? She's brought more attention to herself and her movie's release, which I'm sure was her plan. She uses refugees and her children to promote herself and her career.

    Ummmm! Why don't you ask the UNHCR why she was posing with children and sick people and what it will accomplish. BTW, you might ask them which 5-star hotel she stayed in while there.

    Why don't YOU tell us since you seem to know so much about her?
    I'm not quite drunk enough to really care, but is this her violation of her violation of her violation of her violation of probation or her violation of her violation of her violation of her probation????? ~MontanaMama on LL's latest arrest.

    Default happy, crazy mommy

    She's cryin' in public too - I mean the whole nose on the sleeve deal!!

    Angelina Jolie Cries during on International Justice - Angelina Jolie - Zimbio


    Our Lady of Perpetual Hysteria might be a bit 'over emotive', but at least it's not as bad as some of the scenes in her new flick. There are times I'm not sure whether she's trying for an Oscar, or having a stroke. Then again, she's Angelina Jolie: she doesn't have strokes, she causes them!!!

    Meanwhile back in New Orleans, Jolie is in happy, crazy mommy mode. Is she getting high off that new baby smell?? -


    - while Pitt looks older!!

    I'd like to see some of you trot yourselves over there and not cry about what you see. Those are live human beings living in deplorable conditions.

    I would, but it's not in the budget. I squandered this year's on plastic surgery, PR, and shiny new horse shoes - sorry. Looks like it'll be macaroni and cheese for a little while longer. On the up side, I am trying to work world peace into next year's budget. I think if I can get a raise, I might be able to swing it!!

    Looking on the bright side - 'macaroni and cheese ' anagrams to 'I'm a hero ascendance', and you are what you eat, right???
