Angelina Jolie Fights For Child Fighters

She loves to do good! And we love her for it!

Angelina Jolie took a break from filming Salt to go to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, on Tuesday, where a Congolese warlord is being charged with using child soldiers.

As an activist, Angelina has always been concerned with the welfare of the world's children. She remarked that this would be a "landmark trial for children" and we're sure it was a great privilege for her to assist in the proceedings.

The man, Thomas Lubanga, is the founder and former leader of the Union of Congolese Patriots political movement and has pleaded not guilty to charges of recruiting and using child soldiers .

No word yet if Angelina plans to adopt all the child soldiers in question.

    She looks like an Alien Cyborg. I love her! yeah , and she's bringing attention to something. LoL



  4. 4

    "Assist in the proceedings?" I'm pretty sure she didn't "assist" with anything. Considering she's not a lawyer, or has anything to do with anything. But good on her though, she cares about things besides Hollywood. I cannot, however, say the same for you Mario.



  5. 5

    I don't care how much "good" she does. She's still a dirty slut.



  6. 6

    I love Angie, she's done an amazing amount of humanitarian work.

    I love her for getting plugged in a limo on the way to the Oscars by Billy Bob Thorton and then telling E tv all about it on the red carpet.



  9. 9

    Right! She has another movie to promote so it's about right that she gets involved in this kind of theater just to put the eyes on her. So how long till she starts banging Thomas Lubanga????



  10. 10

    "assist"…hmm…..I think you're subtly poking fun, P.H. Just look at that picture. That screams "I am SOOOOOOOOOO serious!" I'll give her one thing- her presence as a celebrity gives the trial that much more media attention, spotlighting the issue. If that's what she means by "assist" than by all means, go for it! But if she thinks she can actually add anything of value to the proceedings beyond media whoring, she's obviously got an ego balloon that needs to be popped.



  11. 11

    THAT'S MY GIRL, WHAT CAN I SAY.



  12. 12

    Re: DamnYankee – Yeah she tries way too hard to be serious yet we all know she is a trainwreck! What about being a mom and a woman to Brad???



  13. 13

    Santa Angelina, pray for us sinners…



  14. 14

    Without a doubt she'll adopt them all.
    What makes her qualified to work for the U.N. anyway?



  15. 15

    Damn, THAT BITCH NEEDS TO EAT!!!
    *****
    Same goes for ZOE SALDANA in Star Trek.
    *****
    They look like LOLLIPOPS

    Re: Kate27 – lol XD … she "cares" for children yet her own spend most of the time with a nanny. sad.



  17. 17

    W H O R E



  18. 18

    I can't stand this fake, publicity whore. She is the biggest narcissist out there. What is the most disturbing is that high ranking officials take her seriously. Once a mental case, always a mental case.



  19. 19

    LOL The Jolie-Pitts have a movie coming out! MUST DO CHARITY!!! MUST GET PRESS!!! MUST GET ATTENTION!!!!!! It's almost time for them to pimp out their whole brood again

    Thank you Perez.
    She is the sanest celebrity in the world today! Love her and her movies and her huge heart for people in need. She likes to bring your attention to people suffering or people victimised by war etc. Please stop posting 'hate' posts

    Please tell me she isn't the one that said would be "assisting". So I guess just blessing them with her presence is supposed to help them in some way?



  22. 22

    what would be the tone of the story if it was anniston up there, I wonder?



  23. 23

    Re: Yada – You think Jolie is sane? Can I have whatever is in your glass of delusion?



  24. 24

    It's good to see her well-paid publicists are doing their job!!!



  25. 25

    Angelina rocks!



  26. 26

    Good thoughts! Good deeds!



  27. 27

    GRRR…so sick of Angelina, so what she does some charity work…they all do it's good PR!!! She's no angel…she stole another woman's husband for God's sake. But kudos to her PR person for taking her from a knife collecting, blood necklace, brother kissing cutter to the worlds biggest saint…PLEASE!!!!!!!



  28. 28

    Between filming and being an activist when does she spend time with her children?

  29. Moron says – reply to this

    for losers like Alice and Kate, She is all that and much more. People who do many meaningful things in life always find the time to do even more, unlike you who only have time to waste on the internet, and bet are lousy at the few things you manage to do in your lives, if you do anything at all. Get a fucking life!



  30. 30

    overrated homewrecking bimbo who Hollywood can't stop shutting their yap about.



  31. 31

    Blah blah blah. I think it would be nice if she would be an advocate for her own children. Dear Angelina, there are several terribly sad children that could use a mother. Unfortunatly, their Mother has chosen to make lots and lots of movies, and run around the world collecting children from this place and that. Yes Angelina, the children in question are your own. Grow the hell up and be a mother! If you have a choice to stay home and be with your children you should take it. Most mothers take pay cuts to simply see their babies grow up and be there when they need something. I guess that's asking too much of the dirty whore.



  32. 32

    Being a good mother doesn't mean you spend every waking hour with them. She probably is a waay better mom than you people who work everyday or stay-at-home-moms who resent her for having a life OTHER THAN taking care of kids.



  33. 33

    Great she does charity work but she's right on que. She's getting negative attention and Pitt and Aniston are getting lots of attention, so now she has to do what she does best… do some do gooding to get the press talking about her again. She's sooo predictable. Charity work great–she's pathetic though.



  34. 34

    Hey! Is that man the fiscal Moreno Ocampo? Or his clon? Its identical!



  35. 35

    Re: lobsterlover – GMAFB. She and Brad closed down the country and infringed on others personal rights. They never came through with their donation either. Trusting her womb to Namibia, hardly! She flew in her OBGYN from LA to deliver her daughter. Taking the doctor (who is unethical for doing it) away from his other patients. This woman is as selfish and self serving as they come.



  36. 36

    Associated Press:
    In a statement released by the court, Jolie, a mother of six, said the case against Thomas Lubanga is a "landmark trial for children" and paid tribute to the former child soldiers who travel to the court's seat in The Hague to testify. 'After watching the proceedings from the viewing booth, I stood up and found Thomas Lubanga Dyilo looking at me,' Jolie said. 'I imagined how difficult it must be for all the brave young children who have come to testify against him.'
    ——
    OMG. why does she have to insert herself into the narrative??? what a moron. what a completely egotistical, arrogant, pompous, and self important MORON. "he was looooking at me!!!" whatever, devilina, you suck and always will suck.



  37. 37

    OMG *gag* "wer'e sure it was a great privilege for her to assist in the proceedings" she is a stupid Hollywood actress for gods sake she has no education…people are like dumb hypnotised sheep over this woman.



  38. 38

    Re: NativeNYer

    She may be self-serving but no more self-serving than other celebs and at least she now has put Namibia on the map (and other great things). I don't think she's a saint but I'm just sick of people putting a negative spin on everything she does.
    Most other celebs seem to only care about how to make more $ and LIVING their life. At least she's a global person and internationally sensitive to people who are not just in her little corner of the world.

    Keep on criticizing I guess…what have you done today?

    I LOVE HER!! THAT WOMAN DOES NO WRONG!!

    whether she wants to have her picture taken or not - it doesn't matter! she's constantly followed! so if she's on the toilet and the paparazzi get a picture, doesn't mean she staged it…and if she did so what?? better pictures of her doing good than pictures of Paris Hilton doing absolutely nothing, who is such a pointless celebrity..who even cares about her! PS Angelina creates her own press. I read she doesn't employ publicists, etc. LOVE HER!



  41. 41

    Re: Dobs – Adultery isn't wrong?



  42. 42

    i want myyyy child back. probably the worst acted and delivered line in movie history.



  43. 43

    I have been doing a survy on Team Brangelina and Team Aniston and the verdict is…..Team Angelina is made up of sleek, beautiful females and males with high levels of education while Team Aniston is made up of fat-running-to-obese male and females, with little or no education. The only exception in Team Brangelina happened to be the Queen of all Media.



  44. 44

    Man does she ever not look freakin amazing? So hot Angie! Also I am sure it's a very serious meeting and all that but that is a nice outfit!



  45. 45

    For those who say she stole Brad, has it occured to you that Brad wanted a family and for his life to mean something more than looking pretty in photo shoots and movies and Jen had commited to more than five years worth of movies! He made a choice to be a humanitarian and a father how can that be bad?



  46. 46

    Wow look at that hand.



  47. 47

    oooh my god, she was SO closeby and I didn't even know it! :o I live like half an hour away from The Hague, or Den Haag as we call it. Gosh, I wish I knew about this -_-'



  48. 48

    Angelina sleeps with married men. And then does humanitarian work so that the women moviegoers will not turn their back on her in disdain.
