Angelina Jolie Met The Pope & Screened Unbroken At The Vatican, Proving Once And For All That She’s Way Cooler Than Everyone Else

angelina jolie cooler than you

Welp, it's official.

Angelina Jolie can now cross "Meet the Pope" and "Screen a film at the Vatican" off her bucket list!

As we mentioned earlier, there were rumors that the 39-year-old mother was scheduled to meet Pope Francis during her trip to Rome this month.

That meeting happened Thursday morning, followed by a screening of her movie Unbroken at the Vatican for the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Making her trip even more monumental than we previously imagined!!

Angie graciously released the following statement about the event:

"Being invited with my film to the Vatican is an honor and a great tribute to the story that I have told in Unbroken. The story of the hero Louis a great example of strength and forgiveness."

Which makes it sound like Pope Francis was the one who wanted to meet her, not the other way around!

Universal Pictures Italia also released a statement, saying:

"Pope Francis, aware of the incredible life story of Louis Zamperini, graciously welcomed the opportunity to view the film and is expected to attend the screening at the Casina Pio IV, headquarters of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences"

Wow!!

Unfortunately Brad Pitt wasn't able to make it due to a "last minute change", but we're sure he was there in spirit.

And Louis Zamperini's son Luke was there to help Angie host the epic event, so we're sure the star had all the moral support she needed!

Hope His Holiness enjoyed the flick!!

    She is awesome as usual.

    Lot of focus on HER statement on "The story "I" have told" "being invited with "my" film"… etc etc

    I'm sure it took an Army to assemble this film And it's the "story" of Someone Else's Real Life.

    A few more of "We" and "Our" (and less I's and My's) would go a log way to make her come off as less of a wind bag. I guess the rumours are based in fact: HUGE EGO. Likely mediocre talent, without the massive support she receives.

    Vial of blood anyone?

    How are you not going to include the Entire Team / crew that helped make this film possible in that statement. It's as simple as changing one's use of their personal pronouns.

    rookie mistake? or a classless self-centred person?

    Would you please leave Angelina alone!! You, bunch of viper tongues..
    She already has enough crap to deal with it, like an army of spoiled brats, plus a husband who isn't always very convenient…

    Mais foutez-lui donc la paix à cette Angelina vous tas de vipères aux langues acérées!

    Elle a déjà assez de s'occuper d'une armée de mômes, plus le mari pas toujours très commode!

    This is a better PR move than her fake chicken pox. She's really fighting hard to get HER movie attention. Do other directors do this with THEIR movies? Isn't it the people who star in the movie that promote it? This woman is the best PR whore ever. And she has no shame with self promotion.

    Re: Dan – Dan please go eat a clique. Angelina did have the Chicken Pox's u jack ass. She is the primary promoter of Unbroken because shes the biggest STAR attached to it.
