Newlywed Angelina Jolie Finally Releases A Post-Wedding Statement — And It's Much More Serious Than You'd Think

angelina jolie brad pitt marriage statement syria war refugees unhcr

Angelina Jolie has been married to her longtime man and baby daddy Brad Pitt for nearly a week, and she's finally ready to talk.

After a very secret ceremony with no photos, we've been dying for any little detail!

Well Angie finally released a statement on Friday, but it wasn't about wedding bells. It was about war.

The special envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees used the moment on the world's stage to shine the spotlight on an important cause: the civil war in Syria. She said:

"Three million refugees is not just another statistic. It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.

International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe.

We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need. The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria."

It's certainly an important message. We should all take time to remember that there is still suffering going on, especially those who are in a position to help.

A very sad, sobering point.

We'd still like a pic of that dress though.

    Americans are too busy watching the crapfest in Fergeson. Who cares about an ENTIRE freaking country?

    Many of the people in Arabic countries including Syria have been killing each other for hundreds of years if not more. No one is going to pay attention to a UN resolution.

    Does she want to adopt again?! We don't want any refuges here… we already have too many people here from all over… and we have muslims, terrorist, and prob ISIS hiding out here just waiting to bust out the brutal violence here on the streets in the U.S Time to protect America and leave the other countries alone.

    It is strange how Brad Pitt, who has such a good relationship with his own parents has married two women who hold such grudges against one of their parents that they exclude them from their weddings. Jennifer Aniston punished her mother for writing in a book that she had advised Jennifer about how to wear eye-make up to distract from her close set eyes and Angelina Jolie was mad because her father didn't love her mother and moved on. BOOOhooooooo. they have no idea what a really abused and neglected child is. They both had plenty of food and privilege growing up. What a crock!

    Re: marielena – You are not her, you do not know what her life is like, but she did very much love her mother, who passed away a few years ago. Don't judge people because of their relationship with family. It is not your place.
