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.
