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
Some random news about some land and a hideaway that Angelina has bought. You can read the whole article and see photos at The Daily Mail.
This is the stunning secret hideaway Angelina Jolie is planning to buy – to expand the jungle paradise she bought from a Khmer Rouge commander accused of mass murder.
Pictured for the first time, Ms Jolie’s remote idyll in northeast Cambodia features tranquil jungle oases and beautiful plant species but its beauty hides a dark past.
The 7.5 hectare tract of land, which doubles as a compound for her charity MJP Foundation, was bought in 2002 from Ta Tith, an ex regime official formally charged in 2015 with committing genocide during the ‘Killing Fields’ reign of terror.
MailOnline can reveal that the 41-year-old took time out from promoting her new film about Cambodia’s horrific genocide forty years ago to ask representatives to offer £32,000 for the land next door, which is owned by a former Khmer Rouge soldier.
Rieng Cheat, who served under Ta Tith and called him ‘a good man’, gave a tour of the property and said: ‘I am happy we are selling to this famous lady. We see Angelina whenever she visits and she is always very friendly.’ Continue Reading
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.
Someone finally uploaded a video from the ‘Good Morning America interview (Aired February 21). Here she mentions the divorce and is the source of all the articles posted online lately with Angelina’s quotes. To handle such attention for something so private, she is so professional and honest at the same time.
Angelina was on Good Morning America on February 21st promoting “First They Killed My Father” and I can unfortunately not watch this because I don’t live in the US. You can watch the interview here and for us others we will ahve to wait for someone to hopefully upload it to YouTube 🙂
Some quotes from the interview:
Angelina Jolie says she still believes Brad Pitt is a wonderful father and their family “will be stronger” following their divorce.
The actress spoke on US television about her high-profile split from Pitt, from whom she filed for divorce in September after two years of marriage.
She told Good Morning America: “We are focusing on the health of our family. And so we will be (healthier).
‘We will be stronger when we come out of this, because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family.”
Asked if she still believed Pitt was a “wonderful father”, as she had once described him, she replied: “Of course. We will always be a family.
“You start with crickets and a beer, and you then you kind of move up to tarantulas,” Angelina Jolie casually told BBC News during a recent appearance in Cambodia. While parts of the interview have already made the rounds, specifically Jolie’s quotes about her divorce from Brad Pitt, the newly released segment shows the actress, director, and humanitarian enjoying a unique activity with her children.
For the BBC interview, Jolie and twins Knox and Vivienne removed the fangs from tarantulas and fried them up with scorpions and other bugs to make a meal. “How do you flip a scorpion?” Jolie joked.
Knox seemed less than enthused about the dish. “It’s like dry chips; like flavorless chips,” he remarked after having some. Continue Reading
In the video I posted yesterday Angelina mentions the divorce and she handles it with grace as usual, even though you can hear that it’s obviously a sensitive subject. This clip above is just a short one and if you want to view the first one go to the previous post on this site.
This news is all over the internet today and that’s why I bring it up as well. I hope the whole family are ok and they will get to handle this privately in the future, if that is their wish.
“I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and…and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”
