Such a dangerous time for her to be taking such a trip, but these people desperately need help and she's the kind of woman who goes where she is needed.

Since February, hundreds of thousands of Libyan people have fled their country to escape the constant violence brought on by it's leader. Many of these refugees have found sanctuary in the bordering country of Tunisia and thankfully, the country has show nothing but friendship and understanding to these people.

This morning, in an effort to bring awareness to the brave people of Tunisia who have started relief operations for the refugees, Angelina Jolie visited the country and brought along with her a very important contribution from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation: safe passage for 177 people to return to their countries of origin and a brand new ambulance for one of the many relief centers aiding those Libyans who have been injured crossing the border.

In a statement about her visit, the Goodwill Ambassador said:

"The outpouring of generosity from the Tunisian people says so much for the future of this country. It is a sign of the openness sweeping across the region … We would encourage others, individuals and governments, to continue to support and assist with the needs on the ground."

Such a truly tragic situation, one we hope with the help of people like Angelina and the brave supporters in Tunisia, can come to an end soon.

  1. 1

    She's not a fucking saint dude. That's pretty offensive to those of us who know what they actually are.



  2. 2

    A Saint doesn't sleep with a married man and then trap him by getting pregnant on purpose. Also why does her huge head look like a skeleton head.lol



  3. 3

    I'm so fed up with this bitch alerting the media every time she is doing "charity"… So we can see photos of her doing her charity work. She's not mother fucking Teresa… Despite what she may think!!



  4. 4

    She makes me want to vomit.



  5. 5

    oh come on! angelina jolie rocks, because not like many of you fuckers, she does whatever the fuck she wants! i mean, she cares about people and her decisions about her life just made her the beautiful person that she is today. so shut up!



  6. 6

    so she steals someone else's husband and is a saint but anyone who makes any mildly offensive comment toward the lgbt community is automatically a demon? just checking.



  7. 7

    I'm glad most people have some common sense left to know this whore only does (publicized) charity to get people to forget she sleeps with anything with a ring on it. if she were truly a saint she would have nothing to be ashamed of. as it is, if i were brad i wouldn't even trust her with her own brother.



  8. 8

    lol "where she is needed" how the hell is she needed in that part of the world right now? oh right…to create "awareness" lol this shit has been all over the news and if you weren't "aware" of the conflicts going on in north Africa and in the middle east, than you have been living under a fucking rock.



  9. 9

    Re: alerock – Agreed. She has brought a lot of attention to areas of the world that need help. Isn't it time to move past the bit about her and Brad falling in love while he was still married? It happens. The people involved are over it, so let's move on.



  10. 10

    What about visiting the refugees in Gaza? There's an idea…



  11. 11

    Angelina is a saint, Perez, the way you're a hot, sexy man that women would kill to get their hands on. The whore doesn't do it to put attention on anything or anyone but HERSELF. It's OBVIOUS. So stop calling Angelina the Slut a saint. Jerk.



  12. 12

    that bitch should sell some of the mega mansions she owns around the world and give her money to those in need… they dont need her just to go to sit there and talk with them taking pictures…. charity?? saint? STFU! mOTHER THERESE WAS/IS A SAINT! she worked for, and lived with the people in need… she didnt spend her time traveling around the world, living mostly in luxury, buying mansions everywhere… im sure the money Angeline gives to charity, is NOTHING compared with what she really has… she just loves PUBLICITY! Gosh! people!



  13. 13

    To the less fortunate she has helped, I'm sure she is considered a saint. To all u changing the subject to her being a husband thief HOW much money do u give to charity every year?? What do YOU do to bring awareness to those who desperately need it??



  14. 14

    Re: alerock – I agree. She's not perfect and no one person can fix all the problems in the world, but she does something positive with her fame, and that's commendable.



  15. 15

    There is nothing more shallow than a celebrity volunteering their time with CAMERAS following them around to document and tell everyone else what they are doing.

    remember Harry Conick, Jr. when he went down to katrina with his own film crew dressed in overalls like he was doing a photo shoot.

    those who volunteer without needing the acknowledgement should be praised.

    Angelina ALWAYS HAS THE CAMERAS around her…it's call showboating folks not good deeds.



  16. 16

    Re: alerock – then why does she need a camera crew with her all the time documenting her so called good deeds???

    it's called showboating dumbass…it doesn't come from the heart…it comes from "look at me" syndrome.



  17. 17

    Re: Katie Homra – what about not bringing a camera crew with you like it was a model photo shoot????/

    Jolie has received wide recognition for her humanitarian work. In 2003, she was the first recipient of the newly created Citizen of the World Award by the United Nations Correspondents Association, and in 2005, she was awarded the Global Humanitarian Award by the UNA-USA. Cambodia's King Norodom Sihamoni awarded Jolie Cambodian citizenship for her conservation work in the country on August 12, 2005; she pledged $5 million to set up a wildlife sanctuary in the north-western province of Battambang and owns property there. In 2007, Jolie received the Freedom Award by the International Rescue Committee.

    YEPPER DOO! SHE GOES WHERE SHE IS NEEDED. SHE ALSO GOES WITH A PROFESSIONAL CAMERA CREW, AND I'M SURE A FEW STYLISTS TO MAKE HER LOOK "NATURAL." DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. AND BY THE WAY DON'T DARE COMPARE HER WITH MOTHER THERESA WHO PUT HERSELF AMONG THOSE SHE MINISTERED TO. ANGELINA HAS A LITTLE WAY TO GO BEFORE SHE GETS THERE.



  20. 20

    She's just getting away from the kids, selfish people do that you know!



  21. 21

    STOP. WITH. THE. SAINT. CRAP. MARIO! She flies in for ONE OR TWO DAYS AND LEAVES. These people in tunisia, the somali refugees probably HAVE NO IDEA WHO SHE IS, NOR DO THEY GIVE A CRAP! They are worried about eating, being killed, etc. They do not watch movies Mario! SHE IS NOT IN ANY DANGER MARIO! SHE IS FLOWN IN WITH PROTECTION, SHE IS NOT NEAR WHERE THE BOMBING IS IN LIBYA, AND HAS THE U.N. ARMED FORCES WITH HER AT ALL TIMES!!!



  22. 22

    this of course is just a PHOTO SHOT! She was at the Tunsia border Tuesday MORNING!!! then it said on another site that the 'CROWDS GOT SO EXCITED TO SEE HER, THAT THE REST OF HER TRIP, TO A MOROCCAN HOSPITAL HAD TO BE CANCELLED' THAT, makes absolutely NO SENSE. 1ST, EVEN if everyone at the refugee site got real excited, why would a trip to a HOSPITAL IN ANOTHER COUNTRY HAVE TO BE CANCELLED? 2nd, pics of her visit, she is WALKING WITH SEC. no problem. and we are talking about refugees, some who have been in these camps all of their lives. THEY WOULD HAVE NO IDEA WHO THE HE!! she is or pitt is. what, is there a movie theater hidden between the outhouses and the stagnant pool of water that is their water supply? or do they all download her recent movie on their Ipads? NOT!



  23. 23

    Why do there always happen to be photographers when she's "doing good?" Just askin'



  24. 24

    Okay guys…all the husband stealing, no good person comments…blah.blah.blah….
    It comes down to this…..she is using her celebrity for A GOOD CAUSE…to bring awareness. What is wrong with that????



  25. 25

    Husband stealing whores are not saints, they are simply referred to as husband stealing whores. Mother Teresa was a saint but this one is nothing but a homewrecking whore.



  26. 26

    she is into the coin.

  27. @v@ says – reply to this


    27

    Anyone who makes the kind of coin they do really ought to give back to those in need. She's not a saint, but she gives back, albeit with a pap in tow under the umbrella of a U.N. appointment. There are a lot of wealthy who don't. If everyone helped those less fortunate than they are, there would be far fewer in need.



  28. 28

    "It is a sign of the openness sweeping across the region"…Openess? We'll see what they end up with.



  29. 29

    I choose to respond to you–above all others–because you are in need of the most guidance. I can understand the point you are trying to make but it falls short if you research this horribly mental woman. This "woman" (term used loooosely) isn't doing whatever she wants….she is doing whatever the FU^K will get her the most attention. If you want to donate an ambulance, buy 100 of them and send a letter. Going there for a "photo op" is both selfish and rude.



  30. 30

    You can't knock her for her work for the UN, even if the photos are gratuitous publicity, they still help. My issue with Angie is that she said she was going to quit movies and devote herself 100% to motherhood. She has a brood of kids she hardly sees and 11 or 12 nannies to take care of them. Mother of the Year, she is not. She's still making movies, globe trotting and dragging the brood around with her when she wants some "mommy" photo ops.



  31. 31

    Re: AttFinch – She was originally in Cambodia filming "Tombraider" blah blah Lara Croft and decided to adopt a kid–mad disrespectful to Billy Bob–who we all forget was another of her husbands. (all actors, by the way) some SAINT



  32. 32

    Doesn't she do nothing but political staging now. Every place she gone recently has something to do with American politics.

  33. @v@ says – reply to this


    33

    Re: elvisimpersonator – I wondered about that. I read once that she spoke or was a guest at CFR.



  34. 34

    Re: Liz1881 – So much jealousy and hateful comments! Even if she's doing it for publicity who (which i don't believe is true) who cares!! At least she's out there doing something while most celebrities are just sitting around drinking cocktails!!



  35. 35

    I hate her.She does it for publicity.
