When a tragedy strikes, Angelina Jolie is always ready to drop the movie star role for her job as UNHCR goodwill ambassador.

And she is rightfully concerned considering the devastation due to the floods in Pakistan. The disaster has claimed the lives of 2,000 while affected another 20 million people.

Angie said:

"This one is really one that we really have to urgently get in there and try and do what we can. We'll financially help, we'll try to figure out which is the best group, we'll probably do HCR and hope to visit and go when the attention dies down and maintain the attention. Because it's millions and millions of people who'll be uprooted for a very, very long time."

Sad.
