Angelina had a meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Lambeth Palace in London on Thursday, March 16 and they have worked and met eachother before. Here is an article regarding the meeting and two new photos!
Angelina Jolie is teaming up with the head of the Church of England.
The actress and humanitarian met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Lambeth Palace in London on Thursday, where the two discussed issues surrounding sexual violence, the refugee crisis and South Sudan.
Jolie met with the archbishop in her capacity as a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She was appointed to the post in 2012.
The actress and archbishop have worked together before, and met in 2015 at the opening of the Center for Peace and Security at the London School of Economics, where she spoke to religious leaders from around the world about ending sexual violence as a weapon of war.
“The role of the U.N. Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Refugees, Angelina Jolie Pitt, is one that has been extraordinary,” Welby said of Jolie at the time. “What she said just now sums up so beautifully the issues we are facing, and puts it so precisely in terms of the challenge that there is. It’s wonderful that she has committed her time, her energy, and has taken great personal risks in order to be able to speak authentically as to what she’s done.”
Busy days for Angelina! Yesterday she was at the United Nations in Geneva talking at the annual Sergio Vieira de Mello lecture. I’ve posted two shorter versions of the lecture and if you want to see the whole clip you can do it when you click at “read more”.
She was well read as usual, we wouldn’t expect less. And it is so very important to speak up during these hard times. So listen to the clips and get motivated and perhaps get to know more about what’s going on in the world.
And besides this, as always – Ms. Jolie looked absolutely stunning, in a blue dress!
UNHCR has published her full speech and you can read it here!
Two shorter videos of Angelina during the lecture:
U.N. refugee agency special envoy Angelina Jolie made an impassioned plea on Wednesday for internationalism in the face of wars driving people from their homes and a “rising tide of nationalism masquerading as patriotism”.
The Hollywood actress, speaking at the United Nations in Geneva, called for a renewed commitment to the “imperfect” world body and to diplomacy to settle conflicts.
“If governments and leaders are not keeping that flame of internationalism alive today, then we as citizens must,” Jolie said in the annual Sergio Vieira de Mello lecture honoring the veteran U.N. aid worker killed in a Baghdad bombing in 2003. Continue Reading
There is always something new to be amazed by or proud of when it comes to Angelina. The reason for her to be in London, UK was to have a lecture at the London School for Economics yesterday on March 14. This weeks celebrates the fifth anniversary of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative.
She looked wonderful in her beige coat and was all smiles on her way to the lecture. She was quoted saying:
“I’m a little nervous, feeling butterflies. I hope I do well. This is very important to me.”
And I’m more than certain that she did well and I’m also sure the students were trilled to have Angelina there and the week earlier Lord Hague was there as well giving a lecture. What a privilege!
Here is some photos of Angelina and also two pics that the students took!
Angelina Jolie today said she was “feeling butterflies” ahead of her first lecture as a visiting professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The actress and film-maker, who co-founded the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative, was set to tell students at the LSE’s Centre for Women, Peace and Security today about her experience in the field and how sexual violence is used as a tool of war.
“I’m a little nervous, feeling butterflies,” she told the Evening Standard beforehand. “I hope I do well. This is very important to me.”
I’m so eager to get to watch this movie. And I’m so happy it has got such good reviews so far, but more importantly that people who was affected by these horrible times feels like it give a authentic view on their struggle.
When the film was seen by those who survived, they shared that the movie depicts the real struggle that they have experienced. Two million people were killed within the period of four years. One survivor said that it was like her acting her real experiences in the movie. The pain was again felt and the horror came back to life.
Angelina Jolie used to visit Cambodia and she felt compassion for the people. In fact, her eldest son Maddox Jolie-Pitt is a Cambodian. He was one of the executive producers as the credits say in the movie. According to Metro, his work in the film was his first ever real job. Jolie said that his son was very interested in the project. He became a hands-on crew of the production team.
Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” is a must-see movie, a heartbreaking account of the extent of man’s cruelty but also a story of heroism and human strength.
Such a beautiful commercial with our beautiful Angelina! I’ve to say that for someone like me who isn’t too interested in beauty commercials, this one spoke more to me than they normally do.
“This new accord invites us to move beyond the divide and ambiguity of masculine and feminine, because it works to reconcile genres” – Delphine Jelk, co-creator of Mon Guerlain
Luxury French beauty house Guerlain has launched Mon Guerlain, a major new feminine fragrance, with actress and film director Angelina Jolie as the face.
The Moodie Davitt Report was the sole travel retail media present at the top-secret launch event held at Guerlain’s Orphin factory in January.
Mon Guerlain, available in 15ml (travel retail-exclusive), 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, will be launched worldwide (including travel retail) on 1 March.
Speaking at the launch event, Guerlain President & CEO Laurent Boillot underlined the house’s global ambitions for the fragrance. He said that the company has an international vision for the launch and is targeting “full expansion of the globe”. Without divulging numbers, Boillot revealed that Guerlain had “never invested so much in a fragrance launch”.
“We are going to speak to so many consumers in the world who don’t even know who we are,” said Boillot.
Mon Guerlain, referred to as code name ‘G17’ during development, is said to represent a portrait of women today and “accomplished femininity”. The perfume is described by Guerlain as “an invisible tattoo on skin”.
The fragrance, created by Guerlain Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser, features the signature tahitensis vanilla note found in other Guerlain fragrances such as Shalimar, Habit Rouge and Jicky. Carla lavender, often considered a masculine note, infuses tahitensis vanilla with freshness and purity. Other notes include sambac jasmine, which links vanilla to lavender, and santalium album sandalwood.
Delphine Jelk, co-creator of Mon Guerlain, said: “This new accord invites us to move beyond the divide and ambiguity of masculine and feminine, because it works to reconcile genres. This is exactly what gives Guerlain its power and modernity.”
“Mon Guerlain is a fragrance for women who defy categorisation, who embrace all that life brings and all sides of themselves, who are comfortable in their own skin and whose guiding spirit is to be true to themselves and to live a life of use to others,” said Guerlain.
Mon Guerlain is housed in a modern version of the 1908 quadrilobe bottle which was created by Baccarat. The top lines have been sharpened and a gold ring has been added. The understated bottle is similar to that of an alchemist and owes it name of ‘quadrilobe’ to its stopper, which resembles four lobes. Guerlain said it did not want the bottle to be ‘gimmicky’ so created a simple flacon with no label.
Actress and film director Angelina Jolie is fronting the Mon Guerlain campaign. The Guerlain-Jolie partnership began in December 2015 when Boillot travelled to Cambodia, where Jolie was directing her film First They Killed My Father. Jolie’s connection with Guerlain started many years ago from when her mother wore a Guerlain powder.
Mon Guerlain’s advertising film is set in Provence, France, where Carla lavender is grown and harvested. The ad visual features Jolie in dark shadow, with her back tattoos visible – linking to the idea of Mon Guerlain as an invisible tattoo.
Read a Q&A with Anthony Dod Mantle, the director of photography First They Killed My Father at Phnompenh Post. He mentions working with Angelina and other details about working on the project.
Q: You’ve worked on several major films before. How was this experience different?
A: When you get dropped out of an airplane in the middle of a rice paddy in Cambodia three days before shooting commences – yes, it was different. I’m used to doing bigger films, and I consider this one in a way a “big-small film” or a “small-big film”. I began shooting the film on the first day with three or four hundred background actors on day one, [while] getting to know Angelina, who I didn’t know, and getting to know a whole crew who I didn’t know. I found her [to be] very much a sister, [and] I felt artistically very close to her.
New project for Angelina it seems, will be interesting to get more details about the series so we get to know more about it.
Shooting for the trailer of a new Turkish series called “Hayat Köprüsü” (Bridge of Life), which will feature international stars like actress Angelina Jolie and football player Cristiano Ronaldo, wrapped up in Turkey’s southern Gaziantep province.
The series is planned to last for three seasons, and will tell the story of a Syrian family seeking refuge in Turkey, after fleeing their war-torn country.
Director Eyüp Dirlik said that the project was launched with the slogan “Either you stay there and die, or you come here and live”. Dirlik also gave information about the casting, stating that international celebrities would visit Turkey’s Gaziantep to support the project.
The director announced that his crew was in contact with some international relief agencies, adding that Ronaldo and Jolie were among the big celebrities who wanted to contribute to the project.
The new series is expected to become an international project after the trailer reaches wide audiences and particularly considering the production’s existing contacts with countries across the Middle East.
Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Fatma Şahin said that the series’ plot was gripping, as it would include love, drama, family ties and the struggle for life.
Leading actress Perihan Savaş announced that the actual filming of the series would start this March in Gaziantep.
Expressing her excitement about the new project, Savaş stated that the series could also be seen as a lesson for humanity, telling the lives of Syrian refugees in Gaziantep and the city’s hospitality.
Angelina recently interviewed the photographer Giles Duley for Citizens of Humanity. It is an important and enlightening read and there is no way that the photographs that they posted won’t affect you. What Angelina and others do to shed light on what’s going on in the world is truly inspiring and so very important!

Photography by Giles Duley
I met Giles Duley the day he introduced me to Khouloud, a Syrian refugee mother paralyzed from the neck down after being shot by a sniper, who lives in a small tent in a refugee camp in Lebanon with her loving husband and devoted children. I know that anyone meeting her would completely change how they think and feel about Syrian people and refugees. Few people will have the chance to meet her in person, but Giles’s photography introduces her to the world.
Different photographers can use the same camera or light, or all shoot the same frame. But what is different is the soul of the person behind the lens, and the moments they recognize and are drawn to—the emotional connection they make. That is what I love about Giles’s photography. Looking at his images, we can feel what he feels. It’s clear that he connects deeply to the human condition of people from all over the world. He himself has been through an ordeal. They say that adversity helps grow compassion, and Giles’s art certainly seems to bear that out.
ANGELINA JOLIE: You describe yourself as a “storyteller”—what is it about the nature and power of stories that inspires you?
GILES DULEY: Stories have incredible power. I don’t truly understand, but they have a mojo, a magic that helps us to comprehend the world and others. Since the birth of humankind we have been telling stories to each other; from campfires, cave paintings, books and film, storytelling is central to our culture and being. I follow in that tradition. I’m not a journalist—I don’t focus on facts and figures. I’m interested in our shared humanity, our empathy for others and the details in life that help us to connect. Continue Reading
