While still on the promotional tour for The Tourist, Angelina Jolie paid a visit to the staff at UNHCR, an important refugee agency, that celebrated its 60th anniversary today.

Her stay in Madrid was brief, but she did offer this thanks to the hard-working people at the agency. She said:

“In the week of UNHCR’s anniversary, I would like to highlight the strength and courage of the world’s refugees and [other] forcibly displaced people who are, for all of us, an example of generosity and dignity. My thoughts go also to the dedicated UNHCR staff, who for many years have risked their lives to protect the lives of refugees.”

We just so admire how she is involved with so many different wonderful and important organizations around the world. Truly inspiring!

    Photo op! The UN is a joke and so is she. She will NEVER rehab her image, no mater how many stupid, meaningless photo ops she does for her own benefit and that of the communist UN she supports. why give her credit for that?

    Charlize Theron is a UN ambassador for peace and campaigns to end violence against women. Why does no one ever make a big deal of that?
    I think it's great that Angelina wants to help people, but she seems to always get all the media attetion while other celebritie's chosen causes kind of get ignored.

    Angelina works tirelessly and unselfishly giving her time, her money, long flights across the world to help the tired, the poor, the suffering. She brings attention to country's and people in need. Why do you feel you have to put her down? "she will never rehab her image" one moron said. She has an incredible image as an articulate, intelligent spokesperson, an Oscar winning actress, a director and the mother of six. WHAT DO YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE?

    Re: Red Panda – Because she doesn't use it for publicity or to try to pretend she gives a shit - she is a genuine humanitarian unlike Jolie

    She is soooooo gorgeous. Maniston and Chelsea Cow can only seethe in jealousy.

    I really don't care much for this insane witch!

    Re: backfire – you left out she is a homewrecker, blood vile wearing, heroine addicted, anorexic, mental case.

    Re: backfire – AGREED, and all these negative people are "morons." Not to mention annoying. I love Angie!

    Multiple home wrecker. Why would anyone admire her? She takes what SHE wants without batting an eye.

    YES! i AM inspired! i am inspired to adopt a kid from every continent; i am inspired to wreck not one, not two, but THREE marriages; i am inspired to let someone cleave useless symbols into my back; i am inspired to make-out with all male family members; i am inspired to wear vials of ANYBODY'S blood because it's fucking edgy; i am inspired to insult a whole country by insisting i have a right to produce my first film there on a topic that gives new meaning to "slap in the face"; i am inspired to attend humanitarian events and donate buttloads of money and spend "normal" family time without my two dozen nannies AS LONG AS I KNOW THE PAPARAZZI WILL BE THERE and that they will GET MY GOOD SIDE; i am also inspired to cut down my nutritional intake to sucking on a marble and recycling my spit; i am inspired to—- oh, wait, you mean none of this will cleanse my soul and atone for the fact that i'm an intense waste of human life? shit. i guess i should settle for actual role models like anne hathaway, charlize theron, edward norton, or, you know other talented and truly self-less celebs. if you guys would only unweld your mouths from satan angelina's anus i think your brain would get a lot more oxygen to rationalize that this is not what a young girl should be emulating.

    W.I.B.
    This is a good association for her. Kudos.

    Why couldn't she give the money, attend the events, and sit in the background? So tired of her, even though I'm tempted to go to her new movie with Johnny Depp.

    Re: Red Panda – Its not jolie's fault. The media is more fascinated by Angie.. it all started with having Brad..then the kids. Mrs Charlize was the it girl for the year 2003..but she fizzled in the media's eye. She didn't have that mystery that Angie has. So that answers your question.
